Chapter 856: Unimaginable Battle
Translator: Lordbluefire Editor: Lordbluefire
On the battle platform, Qin Wentian and Su Feng stared at each other.
Qin Wentian's 300 meter body towered into the skies, Su Feng stood at his feet and seemed so tiny and inconsequential, as though Qin Wentian would be able to trample him to death with just a single stomp.
However, the aura Su Feng exuded was different from the earlier participants. He stood beneath Qin Wentian with his arms folded behind his back. He inclined his head and stared at the gigantic figure but there was an expression of calmness on his face.
He is the top ranker of the Thunder Prefecture. In the fifth-level of Celestial Phenomenon, he was the only one within the entire thirteen prefecture to become a top ranker. He initially thought that to him, this should be an extremely easy selection test yet he didn't expect there would be a Qin Wentian. Qin Wentian had the power to suppress everything underneath him, just like a majestic and towering mountain. It felt as though there was no one on the same level who could defeat him.
But even so, it was impossible for Su Feng to be a coward and dodge the battle. Even though Qin Wentian might truly have heaven-defying strength able to defeat him, at the very least he would still fight for the chance to be part of the top twenty. Even if there are two participants from each cultivation level, that would only make a total of eighteen participants. So, even if he is defeated now, he had to lose so in glory, allowing the world to see the strength of him, Su Feng.
This battle, he had to fight no matter what. If he was defeated, he would do the same as Qin Wentian and sweep all the other fifth-level ascendants under the rug.
Qin Wentian lowered his head and stared at Su Feng. From Su Feng's eyes, it was as though he could see a flickering flame. The others before this naturally couldn't be compared to this top ranker of the Thunder Prefecture.
A terrifying pressure permeated the air. Qin Wentian waved his palms as bell chimes resounded out loud, manifesting an ancient gigantic bell in the air.
"BOOM!" Thunderous might exploded forth and in just an instant, that calm-looking Su Feng also erupted forth with earth-shattering might. Lightning flashed and Su Feng directly vanished, transforming into a beam of light.
That resplendent light arced through the skies, Qin Wentian abruptly felt an intense sense of danger. An instant later, that dazzling beam of light had already appeared right before him and blasted out a terrifying fist light containing the power to rip through everything within. Even before Su Feng's punch arrived, Qin Wentian already felt his facial muscles on the verge of tearing apart.
Everyone at the immortal banquet was stunned by this sudden scene. The burst strength of Su Feng was so powerful. As expected as the top ranker of the Thunder Prefecture, his reputation wasn't just for show.
At the banquet, the experts of the Thunder Prefecture were all present. The prefecture lord of the Thunder Prefecture had a cold smile on his face. Although Qin Wentian might be strong, all these people are going to be in for a rude shock if they think that Qin Wentian was able to easily defeat Su Feng.
He governed the Thunder Prefecture for many years, but geniuses on the level of Su Feng were extremely rare. This was an absolute demon-level character and his combat prowess even gave plenty of immortal kings a nice surprise.
It's fine that Qin Wentian's combat prowess was overwhelming. Just as well, Su Feng's strength could be shown nicely through this battle.
"Spatial and wind energy."
What sort of characters were these experts? They instantly were able to tell the kinds of true intent Su Feng erupted forth with in a single glance. Being able to instantly attack Qin Wentian before Qin Wentian attacked, that was without a doubt the energy from space and wind.
As for the power within his punch, it contained the fused energy of thunder, space and wind, transforming into a terrifying lacerating might. If that hit Qin Wentian's head or eyes, it would definitely be a mortal blow. It was extremely terrifying.
A third eye appeared within the center of Qin Wentian's brow, radiating a fearsome light that shot straight into the eyes of Su Feng. The two of them was transported into a dimension with a stretch of starry skies but even within this dimension, Su Feng's fist still punched out with indomitable force, wanting to shatter Qin Wentian's head.
This punch was too sudden, so fast that it caught everyone by surprise, and even causing Qin Wentian to start. However, Qin Wentian reacted almost immediately, opening his mouth and spitting out a ball of qi, causing boundless ancient bells to manifest around him that slammed towards Su Feng. The booming bell chimes echoed endlessly, while Su Feng's fist shattered the bells one after another. However, the number of ancient bells manifested were so many that they could completely bury Su Feng. Despite his power, he had no way to destroy all of them.
"KILL!" Su Feng roared in rage, unleashing his constellation. His entire person radiated a boundless lacerating light, wanting to rip apart the entire lightscreen. Su Feng had no fear at all, speeding forth like a shooting star, tearing apart the ancient bells, destroying everything that was blocking his way.
Finally, he saw Qin Wentian's gigantic face. But at this moment, a terrifyingly large hand of Qin Wentian lifted and directly blocked his vision. Qin Wentian's palms were simply too gigantic, easily being able to blot Su Feng's sight out.
His palm shimmered with terrifying runic lights, containing a towering imposing might. Evidently, Qin Wentian didn't dare to underestimate Su Feng in the slightest.
Without the blockage of ancient bells, this punch of Su Feng that was supposed to land on Qin Wentian's head, blasted into that gigantic palm instead. The terrifying laceration might burrowed into his palms, causing a bloody wound to open up.
Qin Wentian closed his palms, as though wanting to crush Su Feng within.
Su Feng's countenance turned cold. Spatial fluctuations surrounded him and in a mere instant, Su Feng's silhouette vanished completely, away from Qin Wentian's palm.
Qin Wentian retracted his hand and glanced at the wound on his palm. Over there, fresh blood flowed out, that gigantic palm which contained a terrifying heaven-suppression might was actually wounded by Su Feng's attack.
His large eyes turned towards Su Feng who stood at a distance away. Su Feng was now cloaked within a resplendent golden light in the form of a lotus.
"Although your attack is powerful, the body enlarging technique you cultivates that makes you a giant is actually a weakness instead. Given how large your body is, how can you even touch me?" Su Feng spoke. His constellation flashed as a terrifying wind storm manifested, spiralling about wildly. Within the windstorm, a fearsome lacerating might that could rip apart everything was contained within. At the same time, the golden lotus enveloping Su Feng was like a kind of astral energy that contained a supreme spatial defensive force.
"Bzz!" The intense spatial fluctuations permeated the air as Su Feng disappeared once more. Qin Wentian instantly felt a terrifying might boring down on him from the back. He turned with immense force, causing explosive sounds to ring out; but at this moment, the space fluctuated again as Su Feng vanished and reappeared once again behind his back. Qin Wentian's gigantic body actually limited his agility.
Finally, Su Feng's attack arrived, directly slamming at the back of Qin Wentian's head. A powerful beam of light containing the might of the windstorm tore apart the skies.
A thunderous blast echoed, Qin Wentian's gigantic body instantly returned to normal, and Su Feng's attack soared harmlessly through the air. Lowering his head, Su Feng discovered that Qin Wentian appeared on the ancient platform down below. Right now, Qin Wentian's entire body was glowing with terrifying runic lights as though his entire body was covered with runic inscriptions.
"Returning back to his normal size? This Su Feng is so powerful, he actually forced Qin Wentian to return to his normal size. Under the same circumstances, those stellar martial cultivators proficient in spatial energy would usually have an advantage."
"If Qin Wentian's attacks weaken due to his size, Su Feng might not be the loser. It seems that Qin Wentian wasn't as powerful as imagined, it was only because of his gigantic size that his attacks contained so much power and created such a rush of impact to everyone."
"Returning to his original size?" The prefecture lord of the Thunder Prefecture laughed coldly. Su Feng has yet to erupt forth with all his strength. When Su Feng used his real killing move, would Qin Wentian be able to withstand it?
On the platform, Qin Wentian and Su Feng stared at each other. That windstorm gusted towards to Qin Wentian but he actually stood there unmoving. His suppression astral soul manifested while the Dreamworld Constellation appeared in the air, bringing Su Feng into a dreamscape of his creation.
The astral energy of both parties clashed with each other violently in mid air. Su Feng's windstorm and Qin Wentian's golden figure of suppression both emitted terrifying rumbling sounds. Although they haven't truly made a move, the pressure from their constellations alone were sufficient to slay ordinary ascendants on the same level.
"Chi!" Su Feng turned into a beam of light once more, that shot right towards Qin Wentian. At the same time, a pair of resplendent golden roc wings appeared behind Qin Wentian's back. An intense light flashed as his body underwent another transformation when he executed the immortal battle art. He was now like a Great Sage Wind Roc, directly vanishing from his original spot.
The two of them were simply like two beams of light.
"BOOM!" In a random direction, a terrifying energy radiated outwards, ravaging the space. Flickering silhouettes clashed against each other repeatedly. Su Feng who was cloaked in spatial energy was able to teleport instantly to any location, yet Qin Wentian was akin to a true roc, soaring with such extreme speed that he appear an instant later wherever Su Feng teleported to. Their attacks were simply incomparably ferocious.
"How swift, we can't even see them clearly." The ascendants present at the banquet felt their hearts pounding. The two of them were just like beams of light, creating thunderous booming sounds whenever they collided and each of their clashes took place in different directions, there was no way to tell where they would appear next.
However at this moment, a beam of light that slashed out seemed as though it wanted to split the skies open. Qin Wentian instantly flickered, shifting to the side. That beam of light narrowly missed him, yet it gave Qin Wentian an intense sense of danger.
"Ten Thousand Manifestation Killing Beams!" The countenances of the heaven chosens from the Thunder Prefecture as well as the immortal kings from there all turned solemn. After that they only saw Su Feng relocating his position with each second, unleashing a beam of killing light with each of his movements. Each beam of light contained killing power within. QIn Wentian tried his best to dodge incessantly within the ten thousand beams but his movements were all closely mirrored by Su Feng, which locked him down.
Those immortal king's eyes all shone with a dazzling light. This attack by Su Feng have returned to the natural state, the true intents of mandates, energy of constellation, and essence of the immortal innate technique to fuse together into a perfect whole, turning into the simplest yet most powerful attack.
"Bzz bzz bzz~" In the air, a countless number of Qin Wentian's incarnations appeared. A long spear could be seen in the hands of all of Qin Wentian's incarnations, shimmering with a terrifying runic light.
Su Feng continued his attack, the Ten Thousand Myriad Killing Beams ripped through the incarnations of Qin Wentian but at the same time, his countenance drastically changed when he felt the energy of the countless spears congregating together.
"SCRAM!" Qin Wentian roared, his millions of silhouettes all stabbed out with the spear at the same moment causing a formless suppression energy to transform into a kind of incomparably terrifying law energy. Right now, even the skies changed color. Su Feng howled madly, unleashing even more powerful attacks yet he only saw a boundless runic light rising towards the sky, engulfing all his killing beams.
Su Feng's cloak of spatial energy shimmered as he teleported away yet the incarnations of Qin Wentian were pursuing him doggedly. Each and every incarnation was akin to a true wind roc. That engulfing runic light continued to climb upwards, and Su Feng even felt that his body would soon be torn apart. He couldn't even breathe properly under the suppressive pressure.
"I LOST!" Su Feng shouted out, hurriedly conceding.
Su Feng had been defeated. The top ranker of the Thunder Prefecture was so powerful that he exceeded the imaginations of others yet he still didn't have the strength to overturn the situation. In front of Qin Wentian, he was like the others - existing only to be defeated!
