Chapter 476: Defeating the Shadow of the Great Emperor



Xiao Chen tried to quickly think of a countermeasure. He had never been this focused before.

Saber Sage…Saber Sage…a Martial Sage of the saber. Even though his cultivation was suppressed to Xiao Chen’s level, there was still a clear distance between them.

In the spring, when the ice had just melted, the so-called warmth was only relative to winter. However, compared to summer, it was still cold in the end.

Xiao Chen’s eyes lit up. He had finally figured out something. The words “warm” and “cold” were just a ruse used to trick others.

The coldness was relative. No matter how warm the water in spring was, can it be warmer than summer?

Xiao Chen smiled faintly, trying to come up with a method to break this technique. After a while, the look of confusion on his face faded away, and a fierce purple flame set his saber ablaze.

The Qi whirlpool in Xiao Chen’s body started to spin quickly. A pure lightning-attributed Essence poured into his saber. The Purple Thunder True Fire burned even fiercer, as if it went berserk.

“Break!”

The moment Xiao Chen struck out, the hot Purple Thunder True Fire tore through the water before him. The air filled with the bubbling of boiling water and white steam.

“Dang!”

The purple flames destroyed all the cold Qi. Xiao Chen’s fierce burning flames completely suppressed the other party’s state of ice, managing to push back Bai Shuihe.

“Rustling Autumn Winds, Sweeping Up Fallen Leaves!”

After Xiao Chen broke another of his move, Bai Shuihe’s smile became even wider. He spun around his saber and followed up with his third move.

A strong wind infused with a sense of loneliness quickly headed for Xiao Chen. Bai Shuihe moved within the wind with his sharp saber, chasing after Xiao Chen.

This move was very ferocious. Even though it had been executed later, it arrived first. Its aura was similar to an autumn wind, one that the fallen leaves could not resist. This turned Bai Shuihe’s once defeated move into something much stronger.

In terms of aura, Bai Shuihe’s even surpassed Xiao Chen. In fact, Xiao Chen was no match for him.

Xiao Chen retreated decisively. His figure trembled as he executed the Roaming Dragon’s Nine Transformations. Then, he fused into the nine cool breezes and moved back.

This brat is good, he is very decisive. He monitored the situation very closely and when it turned bad, he immediately retreated. He is not rash at all.

Bai Shuihe praised Xiao Chen in his heart once again. His eyes swept through all the figures. Relying on his experience, he managed to figure out which was his true body. Furthermore, he managed to predict Xiao Chen’s next move as well.

He stepped forward, sent out a feint, and moved towards Xiao Chen’s true body.

“Xiu! Xiu!”

The Xiao Chens flickered. The first figure quickly merged with the ninth figure on the left. The number of clones immediately reduced.

Bai Shuihe smiled to himself, This youth is very smart, but he lacks experience.

There was no force behind his feint at all. His saber quickly changed directions and headed for the merged figure.

“Summer Sky, Burning Everywhere!”

One might ask exactly how strong was the blazing sun of summer. It is the most blistering hot flame in the world. It can even make rivers dry up.

It was also the most tyrannical flame in the world. No matter where one hid, they would not be able to escape from the light of the sun.

It was easy to imagine the might of a move that had such a state infused into it. If it landed on the merged figure, the latter would probably be blasted to bits.

“Bang!”

As Bai Shuihe expected, the figure formed by merging the clones had an astonished expression on its face. It did its best to raise its saber and block. However, it still ended up blasted to bits by this powerful move.

Seeing the figure vanish, Bai Shuihe revealed a lonely expression. He said, “In the end, this was his limit. However, I have taken advantage of this youth by using my experience to defeat him.”

“Uncle! It has not ended yet!” Suddenly, the sound of laughter came from behind him.

Bai Shuihe’s expression changed slightly. He quickly looked back and saw a divine Wukui Tree flickering with scarlet electric sparks.

The youth’s true body that Bai Shuide had overlooked was dressed in white robes and was wielding a saber with both hands, carefully directing the scarlet divine Wukui Tree.

Bai Shuihe’s body reacted in an instant. Before he could even think about it, he was already flew to the side, dodging it.

Xiao Chen had expected this, so the scarlet divine Wukui Tree started falling over to its side.

The two-hundred-odd-meters-tall tree fell over. Its top came just within a meter of Bai Shuihe.

However, Xiao Chen did not stop moving. He shouted, “Explode!”

“Boom!”

The churning scarlet electricity instantly exploded. The shockwave blasted out, akin toa large area-of-effect attack.

At such a close distance, no matter how fast Bai Shuihe’s body reacted, it would still be swept up by the shockwaves.

“Bang! Bang! Bang!”

Bai Shuihe took three steps back. His current cultivation was the same as Xiao Chen’s—Inferior Grade Martial King. He could not dodge such a strong move.

He got struck by Xiao Chen’s attack, and his Battle Armor got blasted into pieces. Blood leaked out the corner of his mouth. However, there was no anger on his face.

“Boom! Boom!”

Bai Shuihe neutralized all the remnant shockwaves the instant he brandished his saber.

Bai Shuihe looked at Xiao Chen with appreciation and admiration in his eyes. He smiled, “Interesting, you knew that I can make out which is your true body. So you made plans for that. In the end, the merged body was still a fake one and your true body had not moved from the very start.

“When I was your age, I was not as accomplished as you. Just based on these four moves, you have already passed my test. However, I have one question for you: Do you still want to continue?”

Xiao Chen smiled calmly, “Why not? It was so hard for me to meet a true bladesman. It would be too unfortunate if I gave up on this opportunity.”

Bai Shuihe wiped off the blood at the corner of his lips. The grin on his face became even wider. He said, “Have you thought it through carefully? If you are not able to endure all ten moves, you will not be able to continue climbing the Ancient Desolate Tower.”

“Xiu!”

Xiao Chen held up his saber and a faint smile appeared on his face. He felt very excited, “It is as you said, I should not leave any room for regrets!”

“Haha! You have the making of a bladesman! Let’s continue having fun with the next few moves then!”

Bai Shuihe laughed loudly and stepped into the air. He spun around his saber and sent out another extremely sharp Saber Technique, viciously attacking Xiao Chen.

“Boom! Boom! Boom!”

The two started fighting in the chaotic space again. They fought with their strength, their wits, and their courage.

Every move was very dangerous and brilliant. Their excitement rose as they traded blows. It seemed like they had forgotten that this was a test.

Bai Shuihe had lowered his cultivation to be similar to Xiao Chen’s. Thus, he could only rely on his experience and Martial Techniques to win.

However, Xiao Chen’s ability to react to the situation had exceeded Bai Shuihe’s expectations.

With Xiao Chen’s ingenious Saber Techniques and exquisite states, he was always able to break the move at the crucial moment, and if he was not able to break the move, he would avoid receiving it altogether.

While Xiao Chen endured the move, he would do his best to injure Bai Shuihe.

They forgot about time, as well as their initial purpose. The smile on Bai Shuihe’s face became wider and wider as time went by.

Soon Bai Shuihe stopped trying to defeat Xiao Chen but rather started guiding Xiao Chen as a senior bladesman. As they fought, he would occasionally comment on the good and bad points of Xiao Chen’s Saber Techniques.

Naturally, the evaluation of a Saber Sage was something priceless; Xiao Chen gained a lot from this. He was enlightened on how to solve many problems that he had not been able to solve before.

Outside the Ancient Desolate Tower, Shi Hailong watched as many other spots of light appeared on the second floor. However, he remained focused on the first spot.

He had a faint guess in his heart as to who had been the first person to arrive on the second floor. However, he could not be sure about it.

“Bang!”

Just at that moment, a figure was ejected out from the walls of the second floor. He seemed to be at a loss of what had happened.

That person could not withstand the ten moves and had failed in his challenge. He had then been ejected out of the Ancient Desolate Tower and could no longer continue climbing it.

“Bang! Bang! Bang!”

After that, another three people were ejected out of the Ancient Desolate Tower one after another. They came back to the sculpture in a dispirited manner and continued watching the other lights within the tower with the others.

The people at the side, who had not managed to qualify to enter the Ancient Desolate Tower, quickly asked about the situation inside. However, the ejected participants smiled bitterly and could not be bothered to speak about it.

Shi Hailong’s eyes filled with doubt. He said, “Odd, there are already three or four people who have passed the test already. However, that person still has not passed yet. Have I guessed wrongly?”

An old man at the side smiled and said, “Old Shi, don’t overthink this. The person who had cleared the first floor so quickly was probably lucky. There has never been anyone like him in the past.”

“That’s right. I have evaluated that person too early. It is just the first floor and yet I had already compared him to the Thunder Emperor of the past.”

As they spoke, another few people passed the test from the wills. More spots of light appeared on the third floor.

However, the person who was the first to enter the first floor still did not move, there did not seem to be any activity.

Shi Hailong shook his head and smiled at the few people beside, “It looks like I have been overthinking things. Let’s continue to observe. The number of people who have managed to break through to the third floor is larger than before.”

---

In the Second Floor, in the Chaotic Space Xiao Chen was at:

Without realizing it, Bai Shuihe’s initially solid body started to turn faint.

“Xiu! Xiu! Xiu!”

Xiao Chen broke Bai Shuihe’s Saber Technique again. The Wukui Breaks the Heavens and the Wukui Moves Heaven struck Bai Shuihe continuously, causing him severe injuries.

“Pu ci!”

Bai Shuihe vomited three mouthfuls of blood. The blue Battle Armor he wore already became very tattered and he looked miserable. However, his eyes still gleamed with excitement.

Xiao Chen was in an even worse state than his opponent. His complexion was pale, as if he had been drained of blood. His white Clear Wind Robes became nothing more than tatteres.

Wounds of various size covered his entire body, and blood slowly flowed out of them, dyeing his clothes red.

“Thousands of years have passed, but no one has managed to push me to such a state before. In the end, I am only a strand of will and cannot last for long. You win.”

Bai Shuihe revealed a lonely expression as he tossed his saber to the side, smiling bitterly as he did so.

When Xiao Chen heard this, he sighed in relief. He had been approaching his limit as well and had already used all his trump cards several times.

If Xiao Chen’s opponent landed a few more attacks, he would be probably be at his wit’s end and die in this space.

Bai Shuihe smiled and said, “Everyone who passes this test receives a reward. After seven thousand years, I have almost ran out of good things already. What do you want? I will still do my best to fulfil your wish.”
