“Master Xing Yun, please!” Jian Zu took the initiative to stand up. He looked at Godly Ancestor Xing Yun and called him Master. Godly Ancestor Xing Yun had been a Godly Ancestor for much longer than him.
But he still sounded cold, detached, and indifferent. In the end, it seemed like he was making fun of Godly Ancestor Xing Yun. When Godly Ancestor Xing Yun heard him, he looked quite grave.
“Please!” said Godly Ancestor Xing Yun nodded. Apart from looking so serious, he looked unmoved. He slowly walked to the center of the stage and waited for Jian Zu.
When Jian Zu arrived in the center of the stage, he grabbed the unconscious Jian Ding Tian and put him on a chair, moving him with the greatest care. He felt so sad. He had lost an important asset!
“Master, you better be careful. Don’t hurt me. You are a Godly Ancestor and I consider you a Master,” said Jian Zu lightly. He didn’t seem worried at all.
Godly Ancestor Xing Yun grinned and closed his fists. His energies suddenly condensed over tens of thousands of li. The power of Godly Ancestors was really too incredible.
The temperature on the stage started decreasing. Everybody felt cold, even Lin Feng and Qian Jin Cai Yue.
Even though they could compete with cultivators of the seventh Great Supreme God layer, the Godly Ancestor layer was completely different. The difference between them and Godly Ancestors was gigantic, especially those overlords who had the strength of the Godly Ancestor layer. They were much, much stronger than ordinary Godly Ancestors.
Godly Ancestor Xing Yun’s Qi was extremely powerful and ice-cold. It felt like the sky had been covered forever, and there had never been sunlight.
Jian Zu stood in front of Godly Ancestor Xing Yun. He wasn’t holding a sword, but he intended to win using sword cultivation. At such levels, they didn’t need actual swords anymore.
“Master Xing Yun, I suggest you retreat. Don’t lose face here. Hehe!” said Jian Zu, smiling proudly and arrogantly. He was making fun of Godly Ancestor Xing Yun. He had never thought highly of Godly Ancestor Xing Yun.
“You don’t need to worry about me. Worry about yourself. Hehe!” answered Godly Ancestor Xing Yun. He refused to submit, and also made fun of his opponent.
Suddenly, the two Godly Ancestors’ Qi became fiercer and colder. Without saying anything more, they suddenly started fighting. In the blink of an eye, they collided thousands of times. People couldn’t see them move, not even Lin Feng and the others. They saw absolutely nothing anymore.
They could just hear sounds, terrifying ones. The ground kept trembling, and it also started raining.
Everybody’s clothes were wet suddenly. Then thunder started roaring loudly and furiously. Lightning flashed, and it seemed like two dragons had appeared in the sky. They both looked terrifying.
Godly Ancestor Xing Yun started making a myriad of palm strikes. His energies were several hundreds of millions of jin in force. Each time he used his palm, it was like he was throwing heavy mountains.
Jian Zu made a circle with his forefingers and thumbs, as if he were holding a sword with his two hands. It was dreadful to see.
His Qi became sharper and sharper, more and more terrifying. Suddenly, the ground and the sky cracked open, as if it had been cut in two by a sword.
Jian Zu then slashed with his hands at Godly Ancestor Xing Yun. Two sword lights emerged and cut towards Godly Ancestor Xing Yun at the speed of light. When Godly Ancestor Xing Yun saw that, he almost panicked when he saw the speed of those two sword beams whose energies weighed hundreds of millions of jin.
There was an explosion. Energies rolled in waves all around. Jian Zu’s sword shadow and Godly Ancestor Xing Yun’s mountain-like attacks collided, and both of them were blown away.
As Godly Ancestor Xing Yun fell down, he was upside down but didn’t lose control. He bounced on the ground using his hands, rose back up in the air and flew towards Jian Zu again. He released energies out of his feet and threw a kick at Jian Zu’s lower abdomen. As before, his energies still weighed hundreds of millions of jin.
If Jian Zu made a single mistake and Godly Ancestor Xing Yun managed to kick him, then Sword Ancestors University would be eliminated!
He had to do something. Even if Godly Ancestor Xing Yun’s energies weighed hundreds of thousands of jin, he had to do something. Godly Ancestor Xing Yun’s foot had gotten much closer to him but its energies had already become half as powerful as when he had just thrown the kick.
Jian Zu didn’t intend to lose. He clenched his fists, put his arms in front of his chest to protect himself and then he also threw a kick down. They both collided and bounced back again. They didn’t rush, and acted carefully. They weren’t in a rush, and needed to keep control over everything.
Each time they used pure Qi, they had to use it efficiently. They couldn’t waste it. If they used up all their pure Qi, then they couldn’t fight anymore.
Godly Ancestor Xing Yun threw several punches. His energies sounded like dragons roaring. His Qi grew more and more powerful. Jian Zu had a bad feeling, and didn’t take any risks. He had to move back. As long as he had time, he still stood a chance of winning.
But Jian Zu grew more and more surprised, because Godly Ancestor Xing Yun was actually quite strong. Jian Zu had initially thought that he would be able to defeat Godly Ancestor Xing Yun in a few attacks, but he realized it wasn’t so simple.
He should have anticipated that because people who had the strength of the Godly Ancestor layer, especially those who had had it for a very long time, couldn’t be weaklings. They all had trump cards, and they were all experienced.
“You can’t win!” shouted Jian Zu furiously. He was still holding an invisible sword. When one got closer to his hand, one could sense energies sharp enough to behead someone as easily as cutting butter.
“ARGH!” Jian Zu shouted furiously and released a terrifying amount of Qi again. Since the previous attack hadn’t been enough to defeat Godly Ancestor Xing Yun, they had to continue fighting. All he had in mind at that moment was defeating Godly Ancestor Xing Yun.
Godly Ancestor Xing Yun wasn’t in a rush. When he saw Jian Zu, he took a deep breath. Jian Zu was already exhausted. Their university had lost enough times in the history of the Competition, he really wanted to win this time, so he focused and did all he could not to make a mistake.
Godly Ancestor Xing Yun started moving again. He wanted to finish Jian Zu in one attack.
Jian Zu moved hastily, already exhausted. Therefore, this time, he used as much strength as he could and charged.
When Godly Ancestor Xing Yun saw that, he felt excited.
The University of Stars and Clouds was going to win this duel, too!
“Alright, it’s time to put an end to this battle,” said Godly Ancestor Xing Yun, smiling confidently. When Jian Zu saw and heard that, he was furious. He grasped his invisible energy sword even more firmly and made a lateral, horizontal cut.
He then sensed an ice-cold energy penetrate into him. It felt like being stung by needles.
Jian Zu suddenly felt sick, as if his veins were about to freeze. If his veins froze, he would be unable to fight, because he wouldn’t be able to use pure Qi anymore.
“Bastard! Piss off!” shouted Jian Zu explosively. If his meridians froze, he would suffer a crushing defeat.
Then he remembered that Sword Ancestors University had never managed to finish in the top four, so he was even more worried and furious. He had to win, now!
Godly Ancestor Xing Yun took advantage of that moment to target Jian Zu’s weakness.
There were two extremely loud explosions. Godly Ancestor Xing Yun made two palm strikes. His massive energies suddenly exploded and the crowd seemed to hear the sound of cracking bones… but it lasted for only a millisecond.
But in any case, Jian Zu was lying on the stage. He had just been blown hundreds of meters away and had nearly fallen off the stage.
When Jing Rui saw that, he was surprised. He hadn’t thought Godly Ancestor Xing Yun was so strong. He was discreet, but extremely strong!
Suddenly, the University of Stars and Clouds became the talk of the town in the whole region. Not only was Lin Feng a member of the University of Stars and Clouds, but Qian Jin Cai Yue had also joined them. Two extremely strong cultivators had joined the university, a great thing!
They were strong. Extremely strong!
In front of such powerful people, nobody could do anything. Jian Zu was no exception, he had just lost and Sword Ancestors University was de facto eliminated.
“The University of Stars and Clouds is in the top four!”
Godly Ancestor Xing Yun took a deep breath. He was standing in the middle of the stage and looked amazed. His eyes grew wet and drops of tears started flowing down his cheeks. How long had he been waiting for such a moment? When was the last time they had finished in the top twelve? When was the last time they had finished in the top four?
A hundred years. A hundred years ago, they had relied on someone else to finish in the top four and this year, he had relied on his own strength to defeat Jian Zu and bring the university to the top four.
He was extremely satisfied!
“You can take a rest,” Jing Rui told Godly Ancestor Xing Yun. He nodded at Qian Jin Cai Yue and Lin Feng. It meant they could also leave the stage temporarily. The next rounds would start again later.
Godly Ancestor Xing Yun nodded back and glanced at Lin Feng before he walked down the stage. Lin Feng and the other young geniuses also went down. Qian Jin Cai Yue naturally followed them. She had already decided to stick to Lin Feng no matter what.
The University of Stars and Clouds was qualified for the next round, so they were allowed to go and take a rest because the next rounds would start later.
“Who drew number two?”
“Si Ji University!”
“Si Ji University vs. Bai Clan University!”
