Chapter 84: The first match

This is a sponsored chapter! Let’s thank Someone for his kindness!

Taoist Chongxu slowly turned to the right, holding the sword in his left hand and lifting it up. The sword was horizontally in front of his chest, and his left and right palms were facing each other, like holding a ball. Everyone in the scene saw that his sword strike had not yet been released, and they were already ready to admire his sword skills.

Holding the sword art in his right hand, the sword in his left hand slightly shook. Suddenly it pierced ahead, and the tip of the sword trembled sharply. It was impossible to see where the attack was coming from. It targeted Song Qingshu’s  seven major acupoints. 

Three flaws were revealed, and Jiumozhi was about to open his mouth to remind Song Qingshu of the flaws in the opponent’s sword skills. Suddenly, several white circles appeared in front of everyone, large circles and small circles, positive circles and diagonal circles, flashing endlessly. It created a circular pattern in front of Jiumozhi’s eyes, he realized that the previous flaws had disappeared.

Daoist Chongxu sword created more and more illusory circles. After a short while, his whole body has been hidden in countless circles. When one circle disappeared, another regenerated. The long sword was extremely fast, and it didn’t produce the slightest shadow. The sound of the blade splitting the wind showed that the flexibility of the performer had reached the state of a master. Everyone at the scene could no longer see any flaws in his swordsmanship, but felt that there were thousands of long swords covering his whole body. They were shocked for a while, thinking that the reputation of the Taiji Swordplay was really well deserved.

A smile appeared at the corner of Song Qingshu’s mouth, he unsheathed his wooden sword, and performed The Dragon Soars in the Sky from the Eighteen Dragon-Subduing Palms.

“No!” Jiumozhi thought he was insane, if he was hit by the sword, wouldn’t his arm be cut off by the opponent’s long sword?

The rest of the masters in the scene also felt that Song Qingshu was too arrogant. He wanted to show off, so he rushed to the most dazzling place of the opponent’s sword formation, thinking that he was invincible.

Unexpectedly, after the sound of the metals colliding, Daoist Chongxu actually took five steps back, looking at the half of the long sword in his hand, his face turned ashen, and he said in disbelief, “I was defeated!”

Everyone in the scene stood up in shock. They didn’t know how the situation had suddenly reversed, and the people with lower martial arts didn’t understand what had happened.

Jiumozhi, Fang Zheng, Zuo Lengchan and others barely saw a peculiarity. It seems that the center of the circles of Taiji Swordplay was its flaw. Maybe Zhang Sanfeng knew about this flaw, but it was certain that even Daoist Chongxu himself did not know about it. However, this Song Qingshu.. he could tell at a glance! They couldn’t help but start to reassess Song Qingshu’s strength.

Song Qingshu thanked his luck once again. Just now, he repeatedly spoke out without shame just to provoke the other party.

Under the covenant of one move, Daoist Chongxu would not be able to tell whether what he was saying was true or false, and would definitely use the strongest defensive swordsmanship in order to seek stability, and think that he would be invincible from the beginning.

What he didn’t know was that Song Qingshu was a cheat character who was familiar with the original story. Of course, he knew that the weakness of his Taiji Swordplay was in the most dazzling part of the circles. If Daoist Chongxu used ordinary swordsmanship to attack and defend against Song Qingshu, based on his swordsmanship, it was likely that neither of them would be able to determine the victory or defeat within a hundred moves, but Daoist Chongxu eventually chose Taiji Swordplay, which Song Qingshu was familiar with and its weaknesses.

He was defeated by one of the younger generations in the sect, even if Daoist Chongxu was a thousand times more broad-minded, he couldn’t help feeling ashamed, “Poor Daoist has no face  to stay here anymore, I shall first go back to the sect and reflect in seclusion.” Everyone kept quiet as he went down the mountain alone.

“I’m afraid I won’t be able to stay unrelated to Wudang Sect’s name anymore.” Song Qingshu sighed and looked up at Zuo Lengchan, “Chief of the alliance, it’s your turn to fight.”

Zuo Lengchan’s face turned blue and then white, thinking that his and Daoist Chongxu’s martial arts were about the same, and Daoist Chongxu was defeated by him.

But after all, he was a hero of wulin, and when his mind was set, he would have to find a solution, “Okay, but even an expert swordsman like Daoist Chongxu was defeated by your swordsmanship. This Zuo is afraid that his swordsmanship is no better than Daoist Chongxu. So this time I have decided to change the comparison method, and not to compare sword skills with you.”

Zuo Lengchan generously admitted that his swordsmanship was inferior to Daoist Chongxu, but no one in the scene felt that he was upright and honest. On the contrary, they did not expect him to compete with a younger generation as a respectable martial arts senior, but he asked the other party to not use his best martial arts. How shameless was this?

“Oh, what do you want to compare?” Song Qingshu suddenly became interested.

“Internal energy.” Zuo Lengchan looked at Song Qingshu and sneered in his heart. Even if this guy started practicing in his mother’s womb, how high can his internal strength be at this age?

Jiumozhi already knew that he himself was a very shameless person. But, he didn’t expect to encounter someone with a thicker skin than him this time. He couldn’t help but sneer, “Your Excellency, as the chief of the Five Sacred Mountain Sword Sects, this kind of behavior is quite shameful.”

“Heh!” Zuo Lengchan didn’t care, “We are going to compete in martial arts, and there is no rule that we must compete only with swords.”

Song Qingshu knew that the other party wanted to deal with him with his Freezing Inner Energy, so he put the wooden sword back behind him, and said with a smile, “That’s right, this one admires the chief of the alliance’s style and boldness. Today I am here to experience your brilliant skills.”

Seeing that his tone did not seem to be false, Zuo Lengchan felt strange, could it be that this guy really admired him? 

What he didn’t know was that Song Qingshu really admired him for his cruel behavior, and he had the majestic aura of a ruler. It was a pity that he had no protagonist’s plot armor in the original story.

“Young Master Song, if you please!” Zuo Lengchan, as a famous figure in the martial arts, was asking his opponent to abandon his sword and use his palm.

“Okay!” Song Qingshu was not polite, and attacked with the Great Devil Subduing Palm.

A few feet away, when Zuo Lengchan felt oncoming ferocious air, he couldn’t help being shocked, and hurriedly used the Mount Song Sect’s Great Song Yang Palm to match him.

Zuo Lengchan fists and palm style consisted of sudden movements and it had lots of variations. Song Qingshu’s style was simple, but it was extremely powerful. Every time he attacked, he managed to land a hit. In contrast, Zuo Lengchan’s Great Song Yang Palm had too many tricks and too many variations. As the two fought faster and faster, those who were slightly weaker in martial arts in the field could hardly see their movements.

“Great Monk,  between Young Master Song and the chief of the alliance, who has the upper hand?” Duo Long only felt that the situation between the two was dangerous, and he couldn’t see who had the advantage, so he couldn’t help but ask.

“Although this Chief of the alliance is currently restrained, his decades of martial arts cultivation is not for nothing. It may not be easy for Young Master Song to defeat him.” Jiumozhi could see at a glance that the two of them were now in a stalemate. No one could beat the other in a short time.

Zuo Lengchan became more confident as he fought, and he was grateful. Although his opponent’s palm strike was clever, it was not as shocking as his swordsmanship that was just revealed. He immediately summoned more of his strength to attack his opponent.

Song Qingshu frowned slightly. He wanted to take advantage of the opportunity of fighting with a master to integrate all the palm skills he knew. However, if he wanted to use the Golden Palm of the Emei Sect, the Wudang Sect’s Taiji Fist, the Heaven Shaking Iron Palm, the Silky Palm; The Heart Shattering Palm, the Great Devil Subduing Palm in the Nine Yin Scripture, and the Eighteen Dragon-Subduing Palms of the Beggar Sect’s and slowly integrate them together. How would he even be able to do it?

The Golden Palm, Wudang Taiji Fist, and the Heaven Shaking Iron Palm, Wudang Silky Palm contained the softness aspect and there was nothing superfluous left in them. Heart Shattering Palm, and the Great Devil Subduing Palm are the masterworks of Huang Chang, the grand master of a generation. It was not easy to change one move or the other. The Eighteen Dragon-Subduing Palms have been improved by dozens of generations of Beggar Sect masters, and it can be said that it has reached the pinnacle. Adding something would be too much, and subtracting something would result in an insufficient output. 

So, how could Song Qingshu just simply change anything?
