Chapter 285: Heavens, quickly take this bastard back

When Shi Xiaobai heard this, he was slightly astonished. Back at Ogre Forest, Sunless could tell that the sword move he was using was the Kun Peng Sword Technique after a few observations. Her sword talent was clearly much better than Heartless, who had to observe for such a long period of time. However, why were Heartless and Sunless able to tell that the Stewing Sword, which Shi Xiaobai theorized to be a mysterious sword technique that countered the Kun Peng Sword Technique, be part of the Kun Peng Sword Technique?

Before Shi Xiaobai could even ask, Heartless had already loudly said, “Why does your sword technique possess the unique sword intent of the Kun Peng Sword Technique?”

Shi Xiaobai’s eyes lit up when he heard this.

The sword intent of Kun Peng Sword Technique?

If that was the case, the Stewing Sword may be a sword technique that countered the Kun Sword, but it was also part of the Kun Peng Sword Technique!

Could it be that the entire Kun Peng Sword Technique was a sword technique that reinforced and countered each other?

The lower form was a Sword of Water, the middle form was the Sword of Wind, and the upper form was the Sword of High Temperatures and the Sword of Fire!

High temperatures countered water!

Wind countered high temperatures!

Fire countered wind!

Water countered fire!

The four sword techniques restrained each other, turning into a cyclic system!

This was the true nature of the Kun Peng Sword Technique?

That’s not right. High temperatures might not be the true essence of the Stewing Sword!

Shi Xiaobai was slightly astonished. He thought of another possibility. Since the Kun Sword Sunless used could only manifest the power of low temperatures, it was very likely that he had yet to grasp the quintessence of the Stewing Sword. Hence, all he could do was manifest the power of high temperatures!

Wind, water, fire were natural elements in Chinese culture. Then, to combine them into one, the Stewing Sword would slash out a sword beam that was the manifestation of a natural element!

What natural element could counter water waves, ice fronts, snowflakes, and even the Kun?

“Earth!”

Earth countered water, and also countered fish!

But it was not ordinary Earth, but burning grounds!

Burning grounds were what countered water and fish the most!

If that was the case, the true Kun Peng Sword Technique was—Earth, Wind, Water, Fire!

Earth countered Water.

Water countered Fire.

Fire countered Wind.

Wind countered Earth.

Four sword moves, reinforcing or countering each other!

No, it might not only be reinforcing or countering, there was perhaps a way for the four sword moves to combine!

Earth, Wind, Water, Fire were regarded in Buddhism as the four elements that made matter, and were also called ‘Cycle’!

“This is the true mystery of the Kun Peng Sword Technique! Combining—Earth, Wind, Water, Fire—four as one!”

Shi Xiaobai’s eyes turned bright and hot as he could not help but feel a tinge of excitement in his heart.

Heartless frowned. He had been asking incessantly, but Tu Dahei remained silent. He appeared deadpan before suddenly looking excited.

Heartless could not help but wonder what Tu Dahei was getting high on.

If Heartless knew Shi Xiaobai had figured out the hidden ancient secret of the Kun Peng Sword Technique through the use of these two sword moves, he would probably be astounded.

What sort of different line of thought and ability to come up with such fanciful and reasonable thoughts did he have?

Shi Xiaobai naturally would not waste time explaining to Heartless his complex reasoning. He only had one thought on his mind!

This King has created a sword that combined ‘Earth, Wind, Fire, Water’!

Because of this, he needed to first grasp the quintessence of each of the four sword moves!

Sword of Fire, he had grasped its quintessence for no good reason.

Sword of Earth, he had yet to grasp its quintessence.

Sword of Wind, he had observed it from Sunless for a period of time, but had never used it before.

Sword of Water, he had only truly seen it a couple of times up to now.

“Let’s start by practicing the least familiar one!”

With this thought in mind, Shi Xiaobai looked at Heartless and loudly said, “Try taking on This King’s strike!”

Heartless felt Shi Xiaobai was filled with oddness. He was in a completely passive state after using Kun Peng Sword Technique that he prided himself with. After hearing Shi Xiaobai’s declaration of attack, Heartless immediately perked his focus.

“Come on!”

Heartless was waiting alert.

Shi Xiaobai prepared slightly before slashing forward!

This strike contained a tiny hint of sword intent he obtained from observing Sunless’ swordplay.

It changes into Peng, winds arise at a flap of its wings!

“Pu!”

A fart-like sound resounded as Shi Xiaobai slashed out a sword beam that fell apart immediately, turning into a gentle breeze.

This breeze blew for a meter or two and was extremely weak. There was no need to talk about giving Heartless any trouble, it probably could not blow up the hair strands of a girl.

Shi Xiaobai had ended up in failure with his first use of the Peng Sword.

Shi Xiaobai’s face turned slightly red as he coughed and said, “An accident, purely an accident!”

Heartless stared confounded as he cried out, “Middle form of the Kun Peng? Why do you know the middle form of the Kun Peng?”

Although this strike had failed, Heartless was able to tell that this strike was the middle form of the Kun Peng. This was because Sunless had failed countless times in her practice of the middle form of the Kun Peng when she was young. Every failure produced such a weak breeze.

Heartless had seen it countless times, so he could tell that Shi Xiaobai was currently producing the middle form of the Kun Peng!

Heartless was feeling extremely perplexed. Why was Tu Dahei able to execute a Kun Peng Sword Technique, which countered his Kun Sword, that he had never seen before? Also, why was he able to use the middle form of the Kun Peng?

Suddenly, Heartless thought of a possibility as he shouted, “My sister taught you!?”

When Shi Xiaobai heard this, he was taken aback. Sunless was not good with words, so she did not know how to express her thoughts. She could only let him observe using her swordplay. It was not considered teaching. But in all seriousness, this was probably a method of imparting swordsmanship?

Shi Xiaobai hesitated for a moment before he nodded.

Heartless immediately gave a wry smile and said with a sigh, “I never believed the saying that girls have their thoughts outside the family, but I have finally understood it. This Kun Peng Sword Technique is a secret technique of the Kun Peng Sword Sect that is not to be imparted. Yet, Little Sun has imparted it to you…”

If Heartless knew that Sunless had handed the Kun Peng Sword Manual directly to Shi Xiaobai, he would probably vomit blood on the spot.

Shi Xiaobai did not plan on explaining. All he had on his mind was the Kun Peng Sword Technique. Seeing Heartless looking depressed, he took a few steps back and began brandishing his sword around in the corner.

“Pu… Pu… Pu… Pu…”

Shi Xiaobai constantly slashed out Peng Sword, but suffered repeated failures. It was apparently not that simple to grasp its quintessence.

Seeing Shi Xiaobai ignore him while practicing his swordplay in the corner, Heartless immediately felt bitter.

Hey, aren’t we supposed to be battling now?

Heartless recalled the entire process of this duel and immediately found it absurd.

In the first half of the duel, he had been tortured by the black sword, resulting in constant defeat. Tu Dahei’s proficiency of his left hand also gradually increased.

In the middle of the duel, he had held back to fight with Tu Dahei for three hundred rounds in order to return the favor. As such, Tu Dahei completely grasped the use of his left hand.

In the second half of the duel, he used the lower form of the Kun Peng, but was countered by Tu Dahei’s mysterious sword technique. He was immediately at a disadvantage. Then Tu Dahei began ignoring him and practiced the middle form of the Kun Peng himself.

What did this mean?

This duel was him clearly being a sparring partner. Tu Dahei was not satisfied just training his left hand in the way of the sword, this was the precursor of him continuing to practice the middle form of the Kun Peng!

Holy shit, I’m a super rookie, a sword prodigy that defended the title of champion at the National Secondary School Swordplay Tournament for three consecutive years. And now, I’m a free sparring partner?

Heartless even felt like dying!

Seeing Shi Xiaobai’s back facing him as he slashed out the middle form of the Kun Peng again and again at a corner, but failing time and time again. He did not feel it was right to sneak up on him, nor did he bear to interrupt him. However, he finally could not help but taunt, “Stop trying. The middle form of the Kun Peng is not a sword technique that can be mastered by brandishing the sword a hundred or two hundred times. Even my sis took three years to barely succeed!”

Just as Heartless finished saying his sentence, Shi Xiaobai slashed out another time. This time, the sword wind did not instantly dissipate like before. It howled towards a wall!

When the sword wind crashed into the wall, it issued a harsh sound. Densely packed sword streaks were left instantly on the wall!

“Su… ceeded!?”

Heartless gaped. He did not dare to believe the scene in front of him.

Tu Dahei had managed to use the middle form of the Kun Peng!

Although the strike was extremely immature, it was the middle form of the Kun Peng that had properly manifested. Heartless remembered that his sister had failed for three years. During those three years, she had practiced slashing thousands, if not millions of times before finally being able to slash out a strike Tu Dahei had managed.

His sister was labeled as a rare sword fanatic, but now, what sort of monster was Tu Dahei?

After Shi Xiaobai managed to produce the strike, he was pleasantly surprised. He had yet to comprehend the Sword of Earth, but he never expected to grasp the quintessence of the Sword of Wind so quickly.

From the looks of it, he had an affinity with Wind and Fire?

What was his affinity with Water?

How long would he take to learn the Sword of Water?

Shi Xiaobai’s eyes glowed as he turned towards Heartless. With a strong desire in his tone, he said, “Come on, quickly use your Kun Peng Sword Technique. This King is unable to endure the thirst!”

Heartless fell silent. He could clearly tell from Shi Xiaobai’s expression three words—”want to learn!”

In the short span of an hour, Tu Dahei had used him as a sparring partner, grasping the ability to use his left hand and learned the middle form of the Kun Peng. Now, he even fucking wanted to steal from him the learnings of the lower form of the Kun Peng?

Heavens, how can you be this shameless!?

Heartless could not tolerate it further as he said angrily, “Tu Dahei, I want to battle you!”

Shi Xiaobai was slightly surprised as he said out of curiosity, “Aren’t we battling?”

Heartless went silent for a moment before he involuntarily cried towards the heavens!

So you fucking know we are battling!

Heavens, quickly take this bastard back!

  1. The first form is the fish that swam in the river

    The second form is the fish trying to jump over the waterfall

    The third form is the fish that became a dragon

    Maybe?

  2. When mc can do anything and everything 1000 times better than experts all characters kind of lose their meaning… Like Sunless… So mc is a 1000 times more of a genius than even Sunless? Meh… What’s the point of Sunless then? Being a silent stepping stone waifu? What’s the point of any nakama if mc can do anything and everything better than his nakama? In the future he will probably punch harder than Kevin and have stronger defense than Mozzie……… Oh wait he already can punch harder than Kevin his turtle punch can kill thousands… Oh yeah Kevin was an assasin now but right, mc already has better movement and one shot kill technique haha… Oh right he also has that filth turtle defense which will probably give him better protection than even titans in the future hahaha…. Yeah i guess there is no point to any other characters specialty since mc can do anything and everything better than others…

    1. The beginning of the book already said that MC was unparalleled, and the way I think of it is not to look at the power levels(How strong each person is) but how they solve the problem. After all, MC defeated the level lord with a pokeball. In the end, it’s your opinion, and I hope you like the book. But please try to keep an open mind(Not saying that you aren’t).

  3. The strongest does not mean the end of the plot. Or that the story will become uninteresting. This means that no one will mock you. Consequently, our (readers’) anger will not be stimulated. That’s how the author writes is rather interesting despite the fact that GG is almost MS. Therefore, I hope he will be able to write interestingly further when no one can force GG to do anything.
    P.S.
    And you thought why the sacred swords staged a fight? 🙂
