Xiang Shaoyun had all his attention on Xie Sanqian. Although he had still been on guard against any ambushes, the sudden attack had still caught him by surprise. He had been able to see that this Ye Xuan was a seventh-stage Transformation Realm cultivator, but the combat prowess Ye Xuan had erupted with was no weaker than a peak eighth-stage Transformation Realm cultivator. His prowess was even comparable to some ninth-stage Transformation Realm cultivators.
Signs of human sword unity could be seen from this attack. Perhaps what Ye Xuan needed was merely one more push before fully entering the human sword unity phase. Ye Xuan was one year older than Li Yaxuan, and he seemed to not be part of any organization. Thus, for him to grow to this point in cultivation was a terrific accomplishment.
Xiang Shaoyun could sense that all his escape paths had been blocked. Since he could no longer avoid the attack, the only thing he could do was activate all his power. Layers of energy barriers were erected in his attempt to reduce the impact of the attack. Right after the outer barriers were erected, the attack arrived.
The sword energies threw themselves at Xiang Shaoyun repeatedly in the form of vipers, creating numerous depressions and cracks in the barrier.
"Die!" Ye Xuan held nothing back and poured all his power into his sword, increasing the might of the sword energies, completely surrounding Xiang Shaoyun's barrier.
"Young master!" Mo Mo shouted. She had finally arrived.
She swung her sword at Ye Xuan with her full power, not giving him any chance to kill Xiang Shaoyun. The interruption forced Ye Xuan to shift his focus and deal with Mo Mo's full-powered attack.
As for Xiang Shaoyun, the impact of Ye Xuan's attack sent him flying far away. Blood sprayed out of many parts of his body, causing him to gnash his teeth in pain. "I was too careless!"
He had been too confident, thinking that not many Transformation Realm cultivators could harm him with his current strength. He was finally taught a lesson for his overconfidence. If it wasn't for the fact that his body was much stronger than others his cultivation level, Ye Xuan's attack would have been enough to kill him as opposed to only injuring him.
Xiang Shaoyun stood up and shouted, "Mo Mo, step aside!"
Xiang Shaoyun's Overlord Skyslaying Saber appeared in his hand as he vowed that, to prove his own strength, he had to obtain complete victory in this battle. Mo Mo withdrew herself, and Ye Xuan allowed her to leave. He stood there and stared at Xiang Shaoyun in astonishment, evidently not expecting Xiang Shaoyun to be able to get back on his feet so quickly. Moreover, he did not seem like he had been badly injured at all.
"You are a fine individual, but unfortunately, you made a wrong life choice. In your next life, remember that you were killed by Overlord Xiang," Xiang Shaoyun said as he strode toward Ye Xuan one step at a time, dragging his Overlord Skyslaying Saber behind him.
The presence of dragon and tiger surged out of his body, and his entire being turned majestic. His aura seemed unstoppable. The crowd around them were astonished. None of them had expected that this ordinary looking young man would have such an extraordinary bearing.
Even Li Yaxuan, who had been nonchalantly watching the battle, grew serious, and her eyes lit up. As for Ye Xuan, he could sense a powerful pressure pressing down on him; traces of fear started surfacing in his mind uncontrollably.
No! This is not possible! I, Ye Xuan, fear no one! How can I be afraid? Ye Xuan yelled in his heart and tightened his grip on his Bamboo Sword. He erupted with all his power and attacked Xiang Shaoyun once again.
Thousand Devouring Bamboo Viper!
A large number of bamboo vipers appeared out of nowhere. They all opened their jaws wide, creating an incomparably terrifying scene. This was a true king-grade battle technique and was much stronger than Ye Xuan's previous attack. It was strong enough to fight any ninth-stage Transformation Realm cultivators.
An attack like this was definitely among the strongest in the entirety of the Transformation Realm. This was an attack Ye Xuan had decided to use after making up his mind to finish off Xiang Shaoyun.
Not far away, the injured Xie Sanqian sensed the prowess of the attack and cried out inwardly, That Ye Xuan is actually so powerful? He better get rid of that guy!
It had been very long since Xie Sanqian had last tasted defeat. Thus, he could not stand the thought of Xiang Shaoyun staying alive. Just as Xiang Shaoyun was fully enveloped by the attack, he moved. He swung his saber nonchalantly, the saber moving at an unimaginably fast speed. The saber energy only appeared in everyone's vision for a split second before vanishing.
The numerous bamboo vipers were instantly split by the cut; not a single one of them survived unharmed. The scene of one slash to kill a thousand vipers unfolded before everyone present, causing many of them to gasp in amazement.
Not only that, Ye Xuan was also sent flying, and a cut had appeared on his stomach with blood flowing out of it unceasingly. He pressed his hands on the wound, trying to stop the bleeding to no avail.
Kneeling on the ground, Ye Xuan stared with wide eyes at Xiang Shaoyun in disbelief and said, "T-this i-is s-saber intent!"
He had been trying to comprehend human sword unity for a while, hoping that a day would come when he managed to comprehend sword intent. He had yet to comprehend it. Instead, he got a full taste of how saber intent felt, and it was this saber intent that gave him a flash of realization and helped him realize how powerful he would be after mastering sword intent.
Unfortunately, he no longer had any chance to master sword intent. That slash of Xiang Shaoyun's had severed his life. Even in his death, Ye Xuan remained indignant. What he sought after was finally within reach. To die at a time like this was something nobody could accept.
Ye Xuan's death caused a large uproar.
"That slash...I couldn't see it clearly at all. What saber technique is that? It feels so scary!"
"Is that a king-grade technique? Otherwise, how can it be so terrifyingly destructive? Ye Xuan's attack was already very powerful, but it was like paper before that saber technique!"
"Ye Xuan was actually killed! He was quite the genius. I had never expected that he would die a young death. What a waste."
"And even Xie Sanqian suffered defeat. This person definitely has an extraordinary background. Perhaps he is a genius from some other town, or perhaps he is someone from a hidden powerful organization. His strength is terrifying!"
"I have a feeling that slash is similar to the legendary human saber unity!"
It's human weapon unity! Saber intent! Li Yaxuan cried out inwardly.
Others might not be able to sense it, but she could clearly sense how extraordinary the slash was. It was definitely a saber intent. Even Xie Sanqian no longer dared to act brashly. He hopped back on the flame wolf and quickly rode away.
Xiang Shaoyun wanted to give chase, but he sensed a few auras locking down on him. If he did give chase, he would be a target of all those people.
"I will spare you. If you dare provoke me again, I won't show mercy," Xiang Shaoyun shouted in the direction Xie Sanqian had fled. In saying that, he established his dominance and also warned the others who were still thinking of robbing him.Previous Chapter Next Chapter
