Chapter 91: Dragons Finishing Touch
Translator: KurazyTolanzuraytor Editor: Lucas
A Nascent Soul martial artist, how formidable!
The old man's imposing manner descended upon Li Qing, pressing down until Li Qing's body trembled and his face turned pale.
But Li Qing still grit his teeth and persevered.
How could this little bit of pain compare to the humiliation that Duan Ling Tian and Li An had inflicted upon him!?
"Not bad, second level of the Core Formation Stage and able to withstand my imposing manner head on and not take a step back. Moreover, not considering natural talent, just this unyieldingness is extremely hard to come by... what's your name?"
The old man glanced deeply at Li Qing.
"I'm called Blood Enmity."
According to the plan in his heart, Li Qing made up a name.
From today onwards, he would be Li Qing no more; instead, he was Blood Enmity!
He would use this to remind himself that he carried with him a bloodthirsty enmity.
"Blood Enmity, I'm the third son of the Swallow Mountain County's County Governor, Pei San. You really know who cut off my arm?"
The youth that sat at the head seat looked down towards Li Qing in a condescending manner.
Although his arm had been connected with great difficulty, it no longer possessed the nimbleness of before, and it was even unable to execute martial skills...
Such a blow caused these few days to feel like years to him; living wasn't better off than dying.
He wished he could immediately uncover the assailant and dish out a capital punishment to him.
LI Qing looked at Pei San as he asked, "Third Young Master, if I'm not wrong, the person that cut off your arm, the speed of his sword was extremely fast, swift as lightning. The sword entered it's sheathe almost immediately after attacking. Was it like this?"
"Who is he?"
Pei San's eyes shone and his face was flushed from agitation. "As long as you tell me who he is, no matter whether it's 10,000 gold, a group of beautiful woman, medicinal pills, spirit weapons, cultivation techniques, or martial skills... I can bestow them all upon you!"
"Third Young Master, I don't want all of these things."
Li Qing shook his head slowly.
"Then what do you want?"
Pei San suppressed the agitation in his heart and his expression turned grim.
"I want to follow beside the Third Young Master and return to the County City together! As long as my cultivation breaks through to the Origin Core Stage, I will undoubtedly personally tell the Third Young Master who was the person who cut off his arm and where he is from."
Li Qing's gaze flickered as he stared fixedly at Pei San.
"Hmph, what a nice scheme you have there! You see that I'm desperate to seek revenge, so you believe that I would spare no efforts in assisting you to step into the Origin Core Stage, right?"
Pei San's face turned cold as he saw through Li Qing's intentions.
Li Qing kept silent. This was exactly his plan.
As far as he was concerned, as long as he followed beside this County Governor's son, with his full support, he would certainly be able to step into the Origin Core Stage within the shortest time possible.
In Swallow Mountain County, the strongest power was none other than the County Governor's Estate.
If he had the full support of the Country Governor's Estate, stepping into the Origin Core Stage was only a matter of time!
At that time, he would return to the Li Clan and cruelly murder Li An.
As for Duan Ling Tian, he would shame him violently and torture him for a while before handing him over to be dealt with by Pei San.
The old man's gaze turned cold. "Since you know the identity of my Young Master, then you should know the methods of our County Governor's Estate... If you don't speak, I'll kill you right now!"
"You can kill me, but then your Young Master can forget about finding the assailant to take revenge in his lifetime."
Facing the old man's imposing manner, Li Qing had a calm expression and was fearless.
"Do you really think I won't dare to kill you?"
The old man walked forward. A palms trike with immense force and radiating Origin Energy slapped onto Li Qing, blasting Li Qing away.
Li Qing crashed onto the floor and continuously spat out a few mouthfuls of blood, but the corners of his mouth still had a smile. "I really am sure that you won't dare kill me."
The old man's face sunk and he looked towards Pei San.
"Very good, very good."
Pei San smiled out of extreme anger and said to the young girl beside him, "Sister Ru, arrange for people to take him to heal his injuries."
"Yes, Third Brother."
The young girl replied before going to arrange it.
A few moments later, only Pei San and his servant remained.
"Young Master, you're really going to take him back to the County City?"
The old man frowned.
"Grandpa Huai, when dealing with desperate people like Blood Enmity, even if you interrogate him under torture, it will still be impossible to make him talk... Instead of that, why not make use of this opportunity and take him back to the County City. Once we've returned to the County City, we can investigate his background. If we can find the assailant through this, then he won't be of any more use to me. If we can't find the assailant, then we follow his wishes. Once he steps into the Origin Core Stage and uncovers the assailant for me, that day will be the day he loses his life!"
Pei San's eyes flickered with a cold light as he spoke of his plans.
He was the dignified son of the County Governor of Swallow Mountain County; how could he tolerate being threatened?
In his heart, Li Qing was already a dead man.
"Young Master is wise."
The old man nodded. This was indeed the best method.
Aurora City, Li Clan Estate.
In a room within a large courtyard.
Behind the screen, a completely naked youth stood up from within the bath barrel. On his body, a defensive qi barrier raged like a gust of of strong winds whistling by.
"Greater Teleportation has finally been cultivated to the Mastery Stage!"
The youth's face emitted a satisfied smile as he walked out of the bath barrel and put on a set of dry clothes before walking out of the room.
Spirit Serpent Movement Technique!
As soon as he entered the courtyard, the youth's figure started flashing about as if he had transformed into an agile spirit serpent, incomparably swift.
In an instant, he wound around the large tree, rapidly rising to the top.
In the next instant, he flashed onto the ground, extremely agile.
On the trunk of the large tree, one white and one black, two little pythons watched the youth's figure flashing about. Their sharp eyes emitted a sense of meekness and infatuation...
Abruptly, the youth stopped and stood there before taking a step forward.
Dragons Finishing Touch!
In a blink of an eye, the youth's hands danced about like the wind, either forming a fist or forming a palm. As his Origin Energy whistled, it was difficult to distinguish which movement was the true attack.
Just after his thousands of movements, a finger attack condensed from Origin Energy was instantly shot out. A piercing, whistling sound sounded through the air and descended upon a stone pillar.
Immediately, the stone pillar exploded from the point of impact, causing stone chips to swirl out into the air.
"As expected of the offensive martial skill that matches the Nine Dragons War Sovereign Technique's Raging Python Form's mental cultivation method. This Dragon's Finishing Touch, in terms of might, is even stronger than Li Qing's Dark Nether Finger and not one bit inferior to Xiao Yu's Sleeve Dimension.
As Duan Ling Tian stood with his hands behind his back, a smile appeared on his face.
The Dragon's Finishing Touch stressed upon the usage of a howling flurry of fists and palms to disrupt the opponent's field of vision as if painting a dragon that didn't have the final touches to make it lifelike.
Lastly, a finger attack with an extremely formidable might to directly attack the vital points of the opponent was used!
This act was like the finishing touch to the drawing!
Thus, this martial skill was named Dragon's Finishing Touch by Rebirth Martial Emperor.
"Dragon's Finishing Touch includes the high grade Profound Rank martial skill, Cloud Piercing Finger, that Rebirth Martial Emperor cultivated during his second lifetime. Since I've merged with the memories of Rebirth Martial Emperor, I have thus inherited Rebirth Martial Emperor's comprehension towards the Cloud Piercing Finger.. .In those years, Rebirth Martial Emperor's Cloud Piercing Finger was cultivated to the Perfection Stage. As such, I only used half a month's time to cultivate the Dragon's Finishing Touch, which surpassed the Cloud Piercing Finger, to the Mastery Stage."
Duan Ling Tian smiled in satisfaction.
Now the might of the Dragon's Finishing Touch completely surpassed the might of the Form and Will Boxing's Collapsing Fist, which he was the most skilled at.
At present, it was once month after the youth gathering was held.
"Currently, the three high grade Profound Rank martial skills that I cultivate, Dragon's Finishing Touch, Greater Teleportation, and Spirit Serpents Movement Technique, have all stepped into the Mastery Stage, but among them, I've only felt the threshold to the Perfection Stage for Dragon's Finishing Touch."
After thinking up to this point, Duan Ling Tian started to cultivate the Dragon's Finishing Touch even more painstakingly...
Striking when the iron was hot would certainly result in a miraculous effect!
"Duan Ling Tian, you really are hardworking. No wonder you have such a shocking cultivation at such a young age."
Just at this moment, a hearty laughter sounded from outside the courtyard.
Duan Ling Tian looked towards the source of the sound.
What he saw was a figure walking into the courtyard.
The figure was precisely Lin Qi.
Duan Ling Tian welcomed Lin Qi into the courtyard and asked curiously, "To what do I owe the pleasure?"
"Duan Ling Tian, a few days ago, our Lin Clan welcomed a guest from Aqua Mist City's He Clan. Among them was the He Clan's number one disciple in the younger generation. At the beginning, everything was fine, but after he won in a spar against my big brother, he started boasting without restraint, saying that there were no worthy figures in the younger generation of our Aurora City... Afterwards, he even arrogantly established an arena at the north area of the city and is currently challenging all of the younger generation martial artists of Aurora City. Even Meng Quan was defeated by him."
Lin Qi proclaimed the reason he had come. "I came here today because I hoped you would help teach him a lesson and let him know that no matter how great he may be, there will always be someone greater."
"Could it be that even Xiao Yu wasn't a match for him?"
Duan Ling Tian was stunned.
Lin Qi laughed bitterly. "Xiao Yu left half a month ago to go afar and visit some relatives."
Duan Ling Tian nodded and left the Li Clan Estate with Lin Qi.
If he had just accidently heard of this matter, he wouldn't care about it, nor would he fight for the sake of the so called "honor" of Aurora City.
The reason he was going was out of his friendship with Lin Qi.
Upon arriving at the north area of the city, Duan Ling Tian saw a simple martial arts combat arena.
Presently, the arena was fully surrounded by people.
Among them were many Li Clan youth martial artists.
"Duan Ling Tian!"
Before long, many people recognized Duan Ling Tian and their gazes shined brightly.
"Duan Ling Tian has arrived. He can certainly defeat that guy from Aqua Mist City's He Clan."
"That's for sure. This guy from the He Clan seized the opportunity that our Aurora City's Xiao Yu wasn't around and is so arrogant... Now that Duan Ling Tian is here, I want to see how he continues to be arrogant."
"Duan Ling Tian, I support you, f**k him up!"
The surrounding crowd was incomparably fervent, causing Duan Ling Tian to feel slightly overwhelmed.
Suddenly, Duan Ling Tian noticed that on the martial arts combat arena, a person was blasted flying from the arena, hurtling down towards him.
When Duan Ling Tian recognized the youth that was hurtled down, he lifted his hand and caught on to the youth's shoulder, allowing him to firmly descend onto the ground.
Li Zhong was in a slightly sorry state. When he saw that the person who saved him was Duan Ling Tian, his gaze was complicated.
After taking in a deep breath, Li Zhong sincerely said, "Thank you."
Duan Ling Tian lightly nodded and patted Li Zhong's shoulder. "You're OK, right?"
Li Zhong shook his head.
At this moment, a blue-clothed youth on the combat arena looked at Duan Ling Tian and asked in a scornful manner, "You're Duan Ling Tian? The youth genius ranked at the top of this year's Aurora City's Hidden Dragon List?"
But Duan Ling Tian, however, ignored him.
The blue=clothed youth got angry from embarrassment. "Duan Ling Tian, I, Aqua Mist City's He Clan's He Jun, formally challenge you! Do you dare to accept the challenge?"
Do you dare to accept the challenge?
The surrounding crowd had their gazes all descend upon Duan Ling Tian.
Duan Ling Tian's eyes narrowed, then he stomped his legs on the ground and used the force to fly up onto the martial arts combat arena.
"Duan Ling Tian, fight!"
"Duan Ling Tian, show him what you've got!"
"Duan Ling Tian, I love you, ahhhhhhhhhhhhhh..."
