8862words in this chapter2024-01-27

Let Huang Bingcheng and others take the new warriors who joined the Six Gates,while Su Xin holds various confidential reports about the Xunfeng Sword Sect,hiding in a secret room for two days.After that,he instructs Li Huai to go out for a few days and leaves the headquarters of the Six Gates directly.

Since the martial forces in the Jiangnan region are deeply intertwined and highly united,Su Xin can only find a way to resolve them from within.The Xunfeng Sword Sect is his target.

The Xunfeng Sword Sect is an old-school martial force in Jiangnan,with"Xun"representing wind.

The martial arts of the Xunfeng Sword Sect follow the Daoist tradition.Although they may not have outstanding features,they inherit the characteristics of balance and harmony from the Daoist tradition,making the disciples of the Xunfeng Sword Sect stable in their abilities.

Located between Jiangnan Prefecture and Zezhou Prefecture,the Xunfeng Sword Sect has many warriors gathered in Zezhou Prefecture today.The reason is that the Xunfeng Sword Sect and the Wen family of Zezhou Prefecture hold an annual competition to vie for the right to use a spiritual eye.

This so-called spiritual eye is located in a valley outside Zezhou Prefecture,where the natural forces are concentrated due to the changes of heaven and earth.The medicinal power of herbs and spiritual fruits grown in the valley is much richer than that outside.

However,there are two martial forces closest to this spiritual eye.One is the Wen family of Zezhou Prefecture,and the other is the Xunfeng Sword Sect.

Both martial forces are considered second-rate,with similar strength,and in the martial world of Jiangnan,conflicts rarely escalate to a life-or-death situation for the sake of one thing.When such situations arise,first-rate sects usually step in to mediate for the stability of the Jiangnan martial world.

The Wen family and the Xunfeng Sword Sect are no exception.Under the mediation of top-tier sects,they agreed to let their young disciples compete in Zezhou Prefecture every year.The winner,determined by a three-round match with two victories,gains the right to use the spiritual eye for the next year.

This year marks the time when the two factions compete again for the right to use the spiritual eye.So,disciples from both factions have gathered in Zezhou Prefecture,attracting spectators from the martial world.

In the center of Zezhou Prefecture,representatives from the Wen family and the Xunfeng Sword Sect have arrived.However,none of their martial artists in the Yuan Shen realm are present;only a few elders at the Shen Gong realm are there to oversee.

Since this competition involves the younger generation,most disciples from these second-rate factions are only at the Qi Hai realm.Shen Que realm and Shen Gong realm practitioners are rare.For a non-life-threatening competition like this,a few Shen Gong realm martial artists are enough to supervise.

The disciples of the Wen family and the Xunfeng Sword Sect have been in conflict for over a decade,and their animosity towards each other is evident before stepping onto the stage.However,the disciples of the Xunfeng Sword Sect are confident,while those from the Wen family are resentful because they have lost the competition for the past two years.

This time,Wen Qinghe,the son of the Wen family's patriarch Wen Mingyu,has broken through to the Shen Que realm,providing an opportunity for them to reclaim the right to use the spiritual eye.

Onlookers below the stage are discussing the upcoming competition,even betting on the outcome.

"Ah,I heard that Wen Qinghe of the Wen family has reached the Shen Que realm this time.It seems that the Wen family has a solid chance of winning."

"Not necessarily.Don't forget that Wuyun Qingyun of the Xunfeng Sword Sect broke through to the Shen Que realm a long time ago.The outcome is still uncertain."

"But the Wen family's inherited techniques,the Great Silk-Entwining Hand and the Artery-Severing Divine Finger,are quite powerful.The Xunfeng Sword Sect's Xunfeng Sword Technique is ordinary among peers.In the same realm,the advantage is still with the Wen family."

People are discussing the strengths of the two factions,and some are gossiping in hushed tones.

"Have you heard that Wen Qinghe,the eldest son of the Wen family,and the deputy sect master of the Xunfeng Sword Sect both have conflicts over the lady from the Chen family?They've clashed several times already.This time,their showdown on the stage is not just for the spiritual eye but also for the Chen family lady.Oh,the Chen family has indeed produced a remarkable daughter."

These martial world individuals love to engage in such discussions during their free time,shifting the focus of the conversation to the Chen family's young lady.

Soon,a group of people separates from the crowd and walks towards the stage.Someone whispers,"Look,that's the young lady of the Chen family.No wonder she attracted the attention of two outstanding young talents.Truly an extraordinary beauty."

The central figure in the group,a woman in her early twenties,is beautiful and elegant,capturing everyone's attention.Seeing the Chen family young lady,a handsome young man from the Wen family enthusiastically waves at her.The young lady from the Chen family smiles,and Wen Qinghe becomes excited.

On the side of the Xunfeng Sword Sect,a young man with a sword shows a disdainful smile.This young man is none other than Wu Qingyun,whom Su Xin had dispatched from the Xunfeng Sword Sect.

A disciple of the Xunfeng Sword Sect sneered,"Those fools from the Wen family think they can definitely obtain the spiritual eye this time.Little do they know that our Senior Brother has already opened the four senses.This time,whether it's the spiritual eye or the young lady from the Chen family,they belong to Senior Brother."

Wu Qingyun,with a disdainful smile,replied,"That Wen Qinghe was boasting to me a few days ago.Today,I'll teach him a lesson and make him realize that having a variety of chaotic martial skills doesn't mean strength.The realm is the most important."

The martial artists of the Xunfeng Sword Sect complimented Wu Qingyun,and after fifteen minutes,the Shen Gong realm elders from both sides entered the stage,officially announcing the start of the competition.

In the first battle,the disciple from the Wen family and the Xunfeng Sword Sect exchanged greetings before engaging in a fierce battle.In less than half a minute,the Wen family disciple emerged victorious.

The Wen family's disciples used a unique martial skill called the Great Silk-Entwining Hand,specifically designed to counter weapons.On the other hand,the Xunfeng Sword Sect's Xunfeng Sword Technique was somewhat plain,relying on the advantage of the Xunfeng element.While swift and fierce,it couldn't match the Wen family's technique in the same realm.

With the first victory,the Wen family members were overjoyed.After two consecutive losses,their disciples had been diligently practicing martial skills within the family,and today was finally the time for revenge.

In the second battle,the Wen family disciple unleashed the powerful energy of the Great Silk-Entwining Hand.The intertwining energy resembled spider silk,tightening more with each pass.However,the Xunfeng Sword Sect disciple,with a cold smile,skillfully wielded his sword,generating a raging wind that tore through the Wen family disciple's energy,forcing him to retreat step by step.

"Spiritual Sense Realm!Another disciple from the Xunfeng Sword Sect has broken through to the Spiritual Sense Realm!"

Both the Wen family members and the spectators were shocked.Unexpectedly,the Xunfeng Sword Sect had two disciples in the Spiritual Sense Realm among their younger generation.With this advantage,it was evident that the Wen family was destined to lose,and sympathy was directed towards them.

In comparison to the martial skills of the Wen family,which were indeed formidable,the Xunfeng Sword Sect practiced Daoist techniques,emphasizing balance and gradual progression.The bottleneck was much smaller,whereas the Wen family's internal skills were ordinary,lacking uniqueness.

Therefore,in terms of overall cultivation,the Xunfeng Sword Sect had a significant advantage.Although the Wen family's disciples could surpass the Xunfeng Sword Sect's in martial skills within the same realm,if the opponent's realm was higher,the advantage brought by these skills would vanish.

Sure enough,the Wen family disciple on the stage resisted for dozens of moves before finally succumbing and being forced off the stage.

Now,with one win and one loss on each side,the third battle would decide the final outcome.It was a duel between Wen Qinghe,the eldest son of the Wen family,and Wu Qingyun,the deputy sect master of the Xunfeng Sword Sect.

As the two stepped onto the stage,Wu Qingyun sneered,"Wen Qinghe,don't forget what you said a few days ago.If you lose,stay away from Qing'er and don't cling to her like a mangy dog."

Wen Qinghe,with a fair appearance and limited experience in concealing emotions due to practicing within the family,blushed with anger upon hearing this taunt.He retorted,"Who are you calling a mangy dog?If you have the guts,let's have a life-and-death battle today!"

Shrugging,Wu Qingyun said,"Sure,I don't mind."

At this point,the Shen Gong realm martial artists on both sides were growing impatient,coughing to remind the two on the stage to stop wasting time and start the fight.There were other martial artists watching,and their argument on the stage was inappropriate.

Wen Qinghe snorted and took the initiative,using the Great Silk-Entwining Hand.The energy of the technique was soft yet exceptionally tough.Once entangled,the force would increase,making it difficult for the opponent to escape,like a prey caught in a spider's web.

However,Wu Qingyun showed a cold smile,unsheathed his sword,and unleashed a surge of green Qi.The Xunfeng broke,and a fierce wind slashed out–the Gale Sword Technique.In an instant,sword energy swept through,tearing apart the Wen family disciple's technique and forcing him to step back.

"Spiritual Sense Realm!Wu Qingyun has opened the four senses!"

The onlookers were astonished.No wonder the Xunfeng Sword Sect appeared so stable;it turned out that Wu Qingyun had opened the four senses!
