There were already a dozen wounds on his body. The wind caught his sliced clothing slightly as he moved. It was definitely not a comfortable sensation to collide at such a speed.
His opportunity was getting less if this continued.
Lin San’s expression had remained stoic all the while. He was calm and tranquil as ever. He did not feel any rush to end the battle. It did not matter to him how long it would take to create the opportunity and seize it.
He had used the same battle tactic on Teng Teng, and it worked every single time. Teng Teng had used many different tactics to defeat Lin San when they fought each other, but it was to no avail.
Despite the fact that they are both among the Eight Heavenly Kings, Teng Teng had never won against Lin San. Thus, he admired Lin San highly. He would always address Lin San as Brother San whenever he met him.
No one was more hardworking than Lin San among the Eight Heavenly Kings. The speed and agility possessed by Lin San came from his persistent training. He was the one with the weakest natural endowments, yet he was the most hardworking, persistent and focused among them all.
He had been cultivating painstakingly every day in search of his own path. The other seven Kings could never imagine what he had gone through. Even Long Yue’s level of diligence was not comparable to Lin San.
To be the top agility-type soul master in Monster Academy was not a trivial matter.
Xie Xie’s body flashed as he skimmed past Lin San’s side. The Wind Blade in Lin San’s hand swept past gently and left behind a cut on Xie Xie’s back.
However, Xie Xie did not recoil upon touching the ground. With his feet on solid ground, he stopped moving.
One was still while the other was moving. The change was abrupt. He was like a statue upon touching the ground.
Meanwhile, Lin San remained moving at high speed. His body glided past at lightning speed, and there was an addition of three more cuts on Xie Xie’s body in a split second.
But, Xie Xie remained standing and did not budge at all. He had shut his eyes which was observed via the zoom-in on the screen.
He lifted the Light Dragon Seven in his right hand onto his chest. He appeared to be frozen stiff.
A sense of approval flashed past Lin San’s eyes. This youth from Shrek Academy with his superior natural endowments was capable of making accurate judgments in such a short period of time. Moreover, he was daring enough to act on his judgment. This was certainly not an easy task for him.
This would make Xie Xie more passive. Anyhow, he could only seek an opportunity through this method as his speed could never be on par with Lin San’s.
In any case, would it really be that easy to seek for an opportunity?
Lin San did not stop. On the contrary, his speed suddenly increased. The speed that he used to suppress Xie Xie was surprisingly not his ultimate speed.
The green radiance coiled around. A green tornado appeared next to Xie Xie and wrapped around his body, attacking him repeatedly.
Xie Xie waved his Light Dragon Dagger gently to protect himself. He would occasionally make movements, one after another, that appeared as if he was accumulating strength for a take-off as if he was about to flare up any time. His momentum was increasing, but at the same time, he was getting more wounds as well.
It had only taken a short moment before Xie Xie seemingly turned into a crimson red statue at a glance. Actually, his whole body was covered in blood.
It was not noticed when Yuanen Yehui had sat with her back propped upright.
The situation was much worse than imagined. Xie Xie was fully suppressed and did not seem to stand a chance judging by the looks on their faces.
Both contenders had not launched any powerful soul skill nor battle armor, but one had five soul rings which included two ten-thousand year soul rings. Lin San was certainly capable of suppressing Xie Xie with his soul skill, let alone his battle armor. Where was the opportunity in this situation?
“Ding!” A crisp sound suddenly echoed in the competition arena at the moment.
Lin San floated backward. A golden radiance was still shimmering on Xie Xie’s Light Dragon Seven. He had opened his eyes as well.
“Thank you!” Xie Xie spoke to Lin San.
Lin San felt a tug in his heart. He smiled calmly. “There is no need to thank me, this is your power of comprehension.”
Although he sounded nonchalant, he could not help but feel astonished that he managed to leave so many wounds on his opponent’s body within such a short period. All these wounds on Xie Xie’s body had not dampened his will to fight. On the contrary, he was being stimulated by the pain to have confidence in his Ghost Shadow Perplexing Track. Xie Xie’s comprehension of his Ghost Shadow Perplexing Track was deeper now.
The few great Tang Sect Techniques could be exchanged with contribution points, but how could a Tang Sect Technique be learned so easily? One could not completely master the technique after learning it. One would continuously need to investigate and experience it in a profound manner in order to utilize the technique’s power.
Xie Xie’s comprehension of the Ghost Shadow Perplexing Track was elevated by one level when he closed his eyes to sense Lin San’s movements earlier.
“You’ve proven yourself to be Shrek Academy’s student. I was two years later than you when I experienced and comprehended this.” Lin San did not mind praising his opponent. Still, the expression on his face had not changed one bit, for he remained the calm and tranquil person.
An outstanding opponent would give him the challenge. What a waste that Xie Xie did not qualify to be his true opponent, so he thought.
A powerhouse desired to have everyone he knew to be more powerful than himself. It was only then that the stress he felt would turn into a sense of urgency for him to be more diligent in his pursuit of achieving the ultimate strength. Lin San had always felt that way. He would be happier when Xie Xie became stronger.
“Be careful.” A dash of green flashed past Lin San’s eyes. The second soul ring on his body shimmered. In the next moment, he was all covered in green. His shadow covered the entire sky in the midst of his figure’s shimmer.
He was so swift!
Xie Xie was shocked because Lin San’s speed earlier was not his ultimate speed yet. His soul skill could still elevate his speed. He could not sense Lin San’s actual position with his eyes and mind at the moment. The wind swirled around his body. He could not detect any regularity to the blowing wind.
A stream of green light flashed past and there was an additional cut to Xie Xie’s body. Not a moment later, the surrounding air exerted a tremendous pressure that suppressed him. Just like a meat grinding machine.
The pressure was caused by the dominance of absolute speed.
Xie Xie bit on the tip of his tongue as his body suddenly spun on the spot at high speed. The golden dagger circled around his body and transformed into a golden storm. This was his second soul skill, the Light Dragon Storm.
“Ding, ding, ding!” The dense crisp sound echoed continuously. This was generated from the two colliding combatants. There was blood seen indistinctly within the golden storm of Xie Xie. It was his own blood! Those cuts from his earlier injuries had begun to affect his fighting capability.
“Alright!” Lin San hollered as the surrounding green figures vanished. When the audience could see him once again, he was suspended in midair to everyone’s surprise.
A person would need to achieve seven soul-ring cultivation base in order to float in the air without using any soul device. Lin San was relying on his soul power to suspend himself in midair. Gushes of green wind gathered together to support him as he appeared to be a part of the wind.
Xie Xie’s body stopped moving. Drops of fresh blood slid down as soon as he stopped. There was a pool of blood on the ground.
“Admit your defeat. You’re not worthy to be my opponent. You can try again five years later,” Lin San spoke gravely.
Xie Xie smiled as if the blood was not flowing from his body. “Shrek Academy has never before surrendered. Defeat me if you can.”
Lin San nodded. “I understand. Then, let’s end it.”
The green radiance on his body suddenly turned intense. The fourth soul ring on his body shimmered with radiance. A mass of densely-packed Wind Blades appeared around his body. These Wind Blades were miniature versions of the two Wind Blades that he held in his hands. Hundreds and thousands of Wind Blades had appeared by his side in the blink of an eye.
“Spin!” Lin San bellowed.
Instantaneously, those Wind Blades spun around his body at high speeds. He was progressively flying higher with his body coiled up in green radiance. He appeared to be a column of flying wind blades aloft in the sky.
This was his ten-thousand-year soul skill, the Wind Dragon Blade!
Lin San had made the decision not to continue the match after witnessing Xie Xie’s power. This was because such an opponent could not contribute to his elevation. There was no need to waste any more time.
Xie Xie raised his head. He looked at the Wind Dragon Blade that was continuously enlarging and surging skyward. He understood very well that when the Wind Dragon Blade dropped, it would be a thunderclap strike. It was also a strike that could possibly destroy him. Nonetheless, he was not fearful at all. He raised both his hands in front of his body. His right hand was in front while his left hand was behind. A golden light mist arose indistinctly from his body. It was the storing force!
