Chapter 228: Block
Translator: Larbre Studio Editor: Larbre Studio
Dan Chenzi and Jie Se were sitting on a high place. Only here could they stay away from those annoying women. They were surrounded by disciples of Buddhism and Taoism. As long as girls came to chat with them, the same disciples would stop the enthusiastic girls and say coldly, “Please respect yourself, miss.”
“What are his chances of winning?” Jie Se asked.
“There’s no chance. He can’t block Iaido alone,” Dan Chenzi said. “If he uses brute force, he will lose.”
One critical hit dealt 999 damage. If someone could block one move, he couldn’t block the second.
“A sudden thought occurred to me,” the two spoke in unison.
After a while, Jie Se said, “I am thinking that if he were to practice the Indestructible Body of King Kong, he would become the best demon descendant in terms of endurance and defense.”
Li Xianyu’s self-healing ability was very powerful. Jie Se had heard from his teacher, Buddha Head, but his defense was not good. When he met a high explosive opponent, he was easily subdued. Like Miyamoto Hideki, who he was facing now.
However, if he were to cultivate the Indestructible Body of King Kong, it would be like Cheng Yaojin gaining a suit of armor. Not only would his blood volume be high, his defense would go up as well.
“What I want to say is that this guy seems to be better with women than us.” Dan Chenzi looked at Li Xianyu.
At that time, Li Xianyu was sitting in the front row. Beauties surrounded him. Baoze’s male employees sat behind. Women followed him wherever he went.
“Envious of his good fortune?” Jie Se’s eyebrows raised.
“No, I just thought of a thing in the past,” Dan Chenzi said. “The descendant of the third generation of the Li family once gave birth to a daughter with one of my predecessors.”
“Is there such a dark past in Shangqing Sect?” Jie Se was shocked.
“Yes, the heir of the Li family was a sweet piece of food. You know that Shangqing Sect allows marriage. Hence, we participated in that saga. It’s considered a dark past. Later, the next generation of Gokudo Path inheritors of the Li family rose and killed all his half brothers and half sisters. The girl from Shangqing Sect was spared. Do you know why?”
“Why?” Jie Se’s gossip tendencies were burning.
“That Li family descendant and his half sister had known each other for a long time and fell in love with each other, but they didn’t know each other’s life experiences at that time.” Dan Chenzi said. “Later, when he rampaged his way to Shangqing Sect, he knew the truth. He spared her, but killed the leader of Shangqing Sect back then.”
Jie Se was speechless.
“That descendant of the Li family was later married to someone of the same sect, and the family lineage continued.”
“Like you?” Jie Se was shocked. “You are a native disciple of Shangqing Sect. Unexpectedly, you are a descendant of the Li family.”
Dan Chenzi was stunned for a long time. “No, your logic gap is a little big, do I look like a lady killer? You even suspect that Li Xianyu and I are of the same clan?”
“Who is it then?”
“Qing Huizi and her brother, Dan Yunzi.”
Jie Se was stunned.
“If you want to return to secularity and marry Sister Qing Huizi…”
“Stop.” Jie Se frowned and stared at him coldly. “Don’t mention the past.”
That was his dark past. Many years ago, after seeing Qing Huizi’s face at the last Forum Conference, he thought about her day and night, and was very excited. He secretly wrote a love letter and sent it to Shangqing Sect. However, it was read aloud by Dan Yunzi in front of a group of people.
This incident spread back to Lianghua temple. The consequences could be imagined. Jie Se was beaten up for a whole year by Buddha Head in the name of spreading Buddhism. In this year, he was seriously injured and bedridden for more than 20 times.
Buddha Head had a habit: he never argued with others. If anyone were to want to argue with him, he would beat him up, and then put his hands together and say, “Buddha is boundless, do you understand?”
In the same logic, he wouldn’t reason with anyone.
“What we heard wasn’t reason but what we realized was the truth” was what Buddha Head said.
Jie Se didn’t understand his teacher’s idea at first. Many years later, when he was on the opposite peak acting as a witness to the opening of Lianghua temple to tourists, a father said, “When he was studying, he didn’t listen to the advice of his teachers and parents, didn’t love studying, and left school early.” After all kinds of setbacks, he regretted that he didn’t study hard that year.
Jie Se thought to himself, Your son is the same as you back then…
In a flash, he realized what his teacher meant. He understood why his teacher didn’t reason with him, but beat him instead.
The old man said that women were poisonous and were nothing good. That was all.
The young man said, “I don’t care, I want women.”
Many years later, when the young man transformed into an old man, he understood this truth.
Jie Se was that young man, Buddha Head… Of course, he was not that old man, but he must have experienced a similar psychotic episode.
Now that Jie Se had moved on, he was completely immune to women, and naturally understood that his teacher was right.
“Does it mean that Dan Yunzi can also inherit Unparalleled War Spirit?” Jie Se had a thought.
“Yes, but then that happened. No one dared to force the Li family to have children.” Dan Chenzi shook his head. “The Unparalleled War Spirit is cruel and ruthless. She is not so beautiful and pure as she looks.”
“Then, if Li Xianyu dies?” Jie Se’s eyebrows raised.
Dan Chenzi was silent.
“But no one dares to bet,” Jie Se said again.
While they were talking, Li Xianyu had stepped onto the stage. They tacitly stopped talking and watched the battle.
The referee started things off. Li Xianyu backed off decisively, distancing himself from Miyamoto Hideki.
Miyamoto Hideki held the bamboo knife in his left hand and the handle of the sword in his right hand. Li Xianyu retreated as he advanced. The two people faced each other in a silent confrontation, with them staring sharply at each other.
This kind of confrontation lasted for five minutes. Thousands of people in the audience were silent.
It was well known that Miyamoto Hideki’s Iaido swordsmanship was a skill that was guaranteed to kill. If the opponent didn’t die, he would die.
In Li Xianyu’s mind, Yukinako’s strategy emerged.
Although Miyamoto Hideki’s strokes were extremely sharp, the damage range of the sword was only an arc, so his attack angle could be predicted. If he was able to predict that arc, in theory, he could block his attack.
This was the first step.
However, it couldn’t be blocked based on prediction. Sometimes, one could see how he would strike, but one just couldn’t hide. No matter how fast a person’s speed was, it couldn’t be faster than the speed of a sword advancing.
Hence, the second step was to block.
Miyamoto Hideki’s sword was pure and sharp. It was one of the strongest Iaidos of Japanese swordsmanship. At present, no one in his generation could block the powerful sword.
Miyamoto Hideki’s sword aura brewed as it got stronger. His eyes were slightly narrowed and his arms suddenly bulged.
Li Xianyu’s pupils shrunk. At the next moment, a pure sword aura, which was seemingly able to slicing time apart, burst out. This made him feel suffocated, as if he was facing a tsunami.
At the critical moment, his mental strength soared, catching the breath and heartbeat of all the audience around him, and catching the shadow of the terrifying sword.
Relying on Hua Yang’s spiritual strength, he successfully completed the first step and predicted Miyamoto Hideki’s sword trajectory.
Bang! There was a muffled sound. The bamboo sword was stopped in mid-air, unable to advance downwards. It was blocked by Li Xianyu’s left arm.
The second step was to block.
He was in the face of a sword that was fast enough to exceed the body’s reaction speed. Since he could not avoid, he had to block. Others couldn’t do this, but Li Xianyu could. So far, Baoze had tried all means to dissect and destroy Slime, but to no avail.
It was the hardest defense in itself, with a super high defense ceiling.
The broken sword aura inflicted many injuries on Li Xianyu’s body, and his upper body was instantly pierced many times.
The audience turned boisterous, and there was an incredible exclamation from them.
