BTTH Chapter 33 – Proof

Watching the quick challenger, the other unqualified clansmen let out a sigh of regret. It seemed like they were all envious of the well built young man in front of Xiao Yan!

Xiao Yan narrowed his eyes as he examined the young man. Even though he didn’t know all of the clansmen in the clan, he had quite an impression of the young man in front of him.

If his memory served him, the young man was called Xiao Ke and was a supporter of the first elder. Normally, he’d follow behind Xiao Ning like a small henchman and when Xiao Yan fell from “genius”, Xiao Ke never showed him any kindness and instead trampled over Xiao Yan’s dignity.

Recalling old memories, Xiao Yan’s mouth curved to a dangerous angle.

Turning to look at the smiling Xun Er, Xiao Yan smiled while nodding, saying: “Alright, I accept.”

Seeing how easily Xiao Yan answered, Xiao Ke’s eyebrows twitched and a sense of fear snuck into his heart. Drily swallowing, Xiao Ke started to regret his recklessness.

Even though he was somewhat regretful, Xiao Ke couldn’t back down and had to continue through.

No way, to raise 4 Duan Qi in one year is impossible. This guy must have used some method to fool everyone! I can definitely beat him! After wordlessly encouraging himself, Xiao Ke smiled: “Then I’ll see how strong Xiao Yan biao-di is!”

Xiao Yan smiled and didn’t say anything. Standing up, he walked to the center of the training field and motioned for Xiao Ke to follow him.

Watching the calm Xiao Yan, Xiao Ke’s heart skipped a beat and he no longer felt so sure. Forcefully smiling, he walked with stiff strides into the field.

With the two people in the field, even the calculating gazes from the people who did not pass quickly moved onto the two in the field.

On the high platform, Xiao Zhan took a handkerchief that was brought up to him and cleaned his hand of residue tea while intently staring at the training field with a sense of tension in his eyes.

To be honest, no only did the younger generation have doubt about Xiao Yan’s achievements, Xiao Zhan himself couldn’t completely believe it either. This wasn’t because of his lack of trust in Xiao Yan but rather because of how impossible of a feat it was to raise 4 Duan Qi in just 1 year. It was inhuman. Even the Xiao Yan four years ago couldn’t hope to achieve it.

Because of how incredible the achievement was, nobody could believe what they were saying.

But no matter if it was fake or real, no matter if the others believed it or not, once Xiao Yan fought, his real strength would be exposed. At that time, everyone would have their thoughts confirmed or disproved!

Besides Xiao Zhan, the three elders’ breathing intensified as their hands gripped deep hand marks on their respective chairs and their muddled eyes stared at the training field.

In the green rocked training field, everyone’s vision was glued to the two within the training field. Once Xiao Yan fought with Xiao Ke, everything would be clear!

“It’s definitely fake!” At the edge of the training field, Xiao Ning licked his dry lips and angrily whispered.

“It should be…fake right?” Within the crowd, Xiao Mei bit her lip. She couldn’t believe that the young man that had been crippled three years would have such an monstrous achievement.

Under stare after stare, Xiao Yan and Xiao Ke in the training field had already finished their perfunctory ritual gestures and were about to fight!

Both of Xiao Ke’s hands were tilted upwards as light Dou Qi started swirling around around his hands. Taking a deep breath, Xiao Ke stomped heavily on the ground and started to ram towards Xiao Yan.

Low level fights didn’t have any complex gestures and were composed of the simplest attacks.

“Splitting Mountain Hand!”

Quickly nearing Xiao Yan, Xiao Ke’s right hand quickly gathered Dou Qi as it swept over to Xiao Yan’s chest.

Splitting Mountain Hand, a middle Huang Dou Technique that was only available to clan members 5 Duan Qi and higher.

With the gust incoming, the lagging hair on Xiao Yan’s face blew away as a pair of dark eyes were revealed. Blinking, Xiao Yan narrowed his eyes watching the ever nearer hand.

When the hand finally reached Xiao Yan’s shoulder, Xiao Yan smoothly took a step to the left. With a year’s worth of body training, Xiao Yan’s reactions were incredibly quick.

With only 1 step, Xiao Yan avoided Xiao Ke’s attack. At the same time, Xiao Yan lightly twisted his body as his hand reached through Xiao Ke’s arm and went to Xiao K’e shoulder as if he was picking a leaf from a tree.

“Shatter Rock Hand!”

Shatter Rock Hand, a low Huang Level Dou Technique that only required 3 Duan Qi to learn!

“Peng!” A dull sound occurred as Xiao Yan’s hand landed firmly on Xiao Ke’s shoulder, causing Xiao Ke’s flush red face to pale. With a low grunt, he slowly scatter stepped backwards before finally losing strength in his legs and fell to the ground like a turtle.

The whole field was silent. Xiao Ke’s defeat proved many things.

Defeating his opponent in one attack, Xiao Yan shaked his head bored. This kind of opponent wasn’t even a challenge for Xiao Yan. Not mentioning Octane Blast, Xiao Yan hadn’t even used half of his strength yet.

Of course, contrary to Xiao Yan’s bored feeling, everyone within the field was shocked. Many of them slowly closed their eyes because Xiao Yan had to be at least 7 Duan Qi to have easily beat Xiao Ke who was a 6 Duan Qi.

Thinking about that, Xiao Yan’s previous monstrous performance was proved… to be true!

To raise 4 Duan Qi in just 1 year, his result was a miracle within a miracle.

On the high platform. Xiao Zhan let out a deep breath as a weight was lifted from his heart.

“….It’s true, 7 Duan Qi…”

Watching the defeated Xiao Ke, Xiao Mei’s small hand covered her red lips as she couldn’t help but gasp.

  1. ah that is sooooooo satisfying to read 😛

    the sheer fact he downed him with a stupidly weak skill showed just how much he looked down on the pitiful fool who challenged him. and rightly so considering it took only a single hit even then.

    do the challenges continue ? xD will that arrogant brat force him to use his stronger skills? hehehehe

    hehe casual 15th post 😛

    1. Its Kinda Confusing, I My Self Read The First 5 Chapters,
      Like 5 Times Over To Grasp, The Whole Ranking And Power System.

      The Low Down Is Here.
      This Is My Notes, LOL ~Feint Sign Of Pride* ( Otaku, As The Badass I Am )

      Skills Wise:
      1 Godly – 4 Human

      1 Tian Low, Medium, High
      2 Di Low, Medium, High
      3 Xuan Low, Medium, High
      4 Huang Low, Medium, High

      Overal Strength:

      Duan Qi – Total Strength
      1 Low
      2 Low
      3 Low
      4 Middle
      5 Middle
      6 Middle
      7 High
      8 High
      9 High
      – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – –
      This Is My Deduction, Of How I Think He Did It.
      – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

      He Used ” Shattering Rock Hand ” Huang Low.
      Huang Weakest Skill, Of The Weakest Grade: Low

      Rock Hand ( For Short ) Uses 3 Duan Qi.
      Yan Is A 7th Ranked, Due To 4 Rank Difference To The Skill.

      Made Him Able To Pour, More Qi Into That Skill.
      Amplifying The Skill, With 4 Ranks Worth Of Qi.

      Insulting Someone, With Sucha Low Skill, Using So Much Qi.
      The Difference, Was Just Laughable At Best.

      I Hope Others, Understand My Rugh Explaination.

      Thanks For The Translations !
      Take Care & Of Each other !

  2. Thanks for the chapter, got to say that given Ren’s usually fast releases, i kind of get desperate for the BTTH releases, hell i was spamming my mail and the site (site was down so i was way more stressed xD)

  3. Muchuuu suprisuuu!
    Little does his father know that his son has a ghostly grandpa who makes alchemical concoctions to strengthen his child! I mean, isn’t it obvious? He should have guessed that much at least.

  4. Ladies and gentlemen, the site is back! Or so it seems :p
    Thanks for the chapter, if needed proofreading should be done in about 20~25 minutes!
    EDIT:Something just came up, if the proofreading comes up it should do so in a few hours :/
    I hope I will have the energy enough to do so >.<

    1. Because of how incredible the achievement was, nobody could believe what they were saying.
      seeing( methinks)

      for three years… a monstrous

      stares( from the entire clan, if you are comfortable with changing the text slightly to fit English better)

      Not to mention
      Sorry for running late, got into reading http://forums.spacebattles.com/threads/rwby-the-gamer-the-games-we-play.306381/ and that coupled with school kept me occupied 😉
      Off to chapter 34( school in 7:30 hours, but no #!!#$ given)

  5. Good for the boy, to be honest i want this a bit obvious part to end quickly and again see some new, unpredictable events! Thank you again for translating! 🙂

    1. One ‘funnie’ that i noticed long time ago, but only now gonna comment about it. Hehe. Y’all remember how this guy from the ring told Xiao Yan that he ‘just barerly meets requiments to become alchemist’ – now, if you don’t think too deeply, it’s all but a normal sentence. But is it really? Hah, no! It’s by this ridiculous standards of ring-guy, what most probably means that compared to people living in current era his potential as alchemist is above and beyond everything 😀

  6. “It should be…fake right?” Within the crowd, Xiao Mei bit her lip. She couldn’t believe that the young man that had been crippled three years would have such an monstrous achievement.

  7. tyvm for the chapter ggp, a few corrections: in “Then I’ll see how Xiao Yan biao-di’s strength!” easiest fix is removing “how” otherwise u could go for something like “then i’ll see how strong xian yan biao-di(i guess?:/ ) is”

    2. in “It was unhumanly and even the Xiao Yan four years ago couldn’t hope to achieve that.” should be “inhuman” i think, “xiao yan of four years ago” sounds better imo, and maybe use “it” or “such a feat” as “that” sounds awkward to me :/

    3. “Because of how incredible the achievements was, everyone couldn’t believe what they were saying” its only one achievement so the “s” is unneccesary, this is just my opinion but i think “nobody could believe…” would sound better and it should be “seeing” not “saying” 😉

  8. To be honest, no only did the younger generation have doubt about Xiao Yan’s achievements,

    To whoever that will fix this, no should be not

    To be honest, not only did the younger generation have doubt about Xiao Yan’s achievements,

  9. Sadly she ain’t getting it. Like Xiao Yan said when you break a relationship completely for so long and even ridicule the person there is nothing that will fix that gap.

    Thanks for the chapter.
