Was it even possible?

An outer sect disciple had actually beaten an inner sect disciple… furthermore he was able to do it so quickly?

If the audience had not personally witnessed it for themselves, nobody would have believed it.

“Contestant 9…co-contestant 998 is the winner!”

The judge was also shocked and had to take a moment before he could announce the result.

After the judge’s announcement, the stunned audience woke up from a trance.

“Tian Yuan, he…he fought a weak brat from the outer sect, yet what happened? This…this isn’t possible,” A female disciple shouted.

“Did you guys not clearly see what happened? As they were struggling during the fight, suddenly, Su Yun changed his hand movements. He managed to change the direction of his opponent’s spiritual aura output with a mysterious method. “

“What?!? Just by changing his hand movements in this battle followed by a cheap strike to finish his opponent after he had created such an opportunity. Is this man bold or just stupidly daring? Impossible! Absolutely impossible!”

“You are all just looking down on this person! This disciple isn’t so simple. Although I do not know with what method he use enabling him to overpower Tian Yuan, his strength…I’m afraid might be much stronger than what we currently think he is!”

“A mere eighth stage spirit novice disciple overpowered a first stage intermediate realm disciple…wow, how is this possible?”

“Within the realm of higher stage fighting, it is very difficult to say. The fact that this disciple actually managed to overcome three cultivation stages higher than him…this is truly frightening!”

“I’m just afraid that this battle will remain etched into Tian Yuan’s heart for life.”

Off to the side of the arena, several of the inner sect disciples within the audience sighed and shook their heads. The audience members were still cheering endlessly and it would be awhile before the next match began on the arena*. Su Yun’s injured opponent was taken to the Regional Medical Tent of the Su Family to accept his treatment.

As quickly as the match finished, the news of Su Yun beating an inner sect disciple spread like wildfire, instantly reaching across the entire tournament square.

The contestants immediately became interested by the juicy news.

“What? Su Yun actually beat an inner sect disciple? How is this possible?”

“Don’t screw with me!”

“That trash with only a cultivation of sixth stage spirit novice realm? Do not joke like this, cause it isn’t funny.”

“The rumors this time around are really getting too outrageous.”

At first, many disciples did not believe the news. However, after looking at the competition results, one by one they became all completely petrified in shock.

Within the competition’s border.


Qian Ge exclaimed in shock and then lowered his voice.

“Senior is definitely more powerful than him!”

Beside Qian Ge stood a young juvenile.

“Not necessarily! If it was me, I don’t think I could even accomplish this kind of feat!”

“What, beating that inner sect disciple? Senior most definitely would have the strength!”

“Yes, but I am currently at Spirit intermediate realm cultivation, while he was only eighth stage spirit novice realm! If I have to fight him, I cannot earnestly treat him like he is only an eighth stage novice realm disciple!”

“What can he do to senior?”

“Well, he seems to be sneaky and ruthless.”

After the juvenile heard him, he only shook his head. He simply could not understand senior’s reasoning.

Qian Ge remained calm and explained with a smile, “Before Su Yun ate the other side’s spirit infused punch, he had already set up a trap. Therefore, when his opponent rushed towards him, he purposefully thrusted his palm out in such a way as to disrupt his opponent’s spirit power. It was actually all part of his plan!”

“His plan?”

“Right. It had to be this way, since Su Yun was already aware of his opponent’s strength. When one utilizes spirit power to infuse one’s own strikes, there is excessive strain on the body. In particular the stress on meridians that run through the hand is a quite high. If the spirit power infused is not enough or is too weak, a “spirit explosion” could theoretically take place. Therefore, it seems that Su Yun intended to gamble everything on this singular occurrence. When he suddenly changed his movements, with his fast hand movements, he created a “sword” from the spirit power, infused it into his palm, and clashed with his opponent! That was why his hand was heavily injured.”

“So he cut his opponent’s meridians?”

“Right! There was just a little force in the strike’s spirit power, but it is exceptionally sharp. As it severed the meridians of the palm, the circulating spirit power was thrown into chaos. Therefore, his opponent, was doomed to lose!”

“Eh? So powerful!”

“Is it really only powerful?” Qian Ge shook his head and continued, “This man was not only extremely cautious and devious, but his knowledge concerning his opponent’s meridians was first class. If he lacked any of these qualities, he would not be able to sever any of the meridians. It is this combination of traits that I’m really afraid of!”

“So it is that.”

“Strength does not rely solely on cultivation, but also intelligence as well. A powerful man is bold and crafty, but is never ignorant.”

“I will remember the teachings of senior,” The long haired tender juvenile seriously promised.

After this round was over, everyone who was left had officially entered the top two hundred in rankings. Now for Su Yun, entering the inner sect was a sure thing.

The two hundred disciples entered the designated rest area. Su Yun was also welcomed and headed to the rest area.

Before he managed to get far, a large crowd of outer sect disciples flooded over.

Eyes of worship and respect were thrown at him.

“We greet the powerful Senior Su Yun. With your power only being eighth stage spirit novice realm, you managed to defeat a spirit intermediate realm disciple. Please tell us… how did you do it?”

“Too impressive. Senior Su Yun, did you know, a few elders in the inner sect were asking for your name just a few moments ago!”

“Senior Su Yun, can I become your disciple?”

“Senior Su Yun, are you looking for a spirit cultivation partner?”

“Senior Su Yun, I love you!” (EN: Kyaaaaaa >0 Visit the translator’s website Donate to the Translator Share this: Report Error
