Defeated in a Single Blow
“Incredible! Dragon Shisan’s progress is just too fast.”
“That’s right. He’s able to suppress Qi Jin even though he is only at the intermediate Immortal Venerable realm.”
“He’s a true monstrous genius, just like Jiang Chen. It’s great that Exquisite Paradise have such a genius as a son-in-law.”
“I don’t see it that way. It may bring disaster to the sect. Look at who Dragon Shisan has offended. It’s the Immortal Court that we are talking about. Although Dragon Shisan is gifted in terms of bloodline and strength, it’s virtually impossible for him to fight against the Immortal Court. If the Immortal Court is angered, do you think Exquisite Paradise will have peaceful days?”
“Yeah. Let’s not talk about that first. We’ll see how this battle ends. Although Dragon Shisan has gained the upper hand, Qi Jin isn’t a weak opponent. As a peerless genius of the Immortal Court, he must have extraordinary means.”
Countless people were shocked by Dragon Shisan’s unbelievable progress. They still remembered the time when Dragon Shisan had just returned from the Golden Horizon. He was killed by the joint efforts of Old Man Corpse Yin and Old Ancestor Yellow Spring. How long had it been before he grew to such a heaven-defying extent? This was a miracle. Numerous people wouldn’t have believed it if they hadn’t seen it with their own eyes.
Dragon Shisan’s remark had undoubtedly violated Qi Jin’s dignity. All along, he was the one giving such remarks to other people. He had never thought he would receive such remarks from another person today. Furthermore, his defeat in their first exchange made him unable to refute Dragon Shisan’s words.
“Dragon Shisan, like I’ve said, don’t be all over yourself. I have to admit that you are very strong, but do you think you can defeat me just because of this? You have underestimated me. I’m going to show what real power is today!”
Qi Jin spoke angrily, deciding to let go of all his reservations. Now, he had completely regarded Dragon Shisan as a real opponent. All his disdain for Dragon Shisan at the beginning had vanished.
Qi Jin drew out powerful seals continuously in the air. A divine-looking dharma seal the size of a few dozen meters with complex runes on its surface appeared all of a sudden. A rumble was issued from it, creating a big hole in the void.
This was an ancient dharma seal with a horrifying and unimaginable attack. The instant it appeared, the colour of the sky changed.
“Dragon Shisan, die now!”
Qi Jin bellowed. The powerful dharma seal looked like a giant compass as it rushed ferociously at Dragon Shisan with a force that could topple mountains.
This was the most powerful attack of Qi Jin. It bore all the energy he had. It was a strike to kill his opponent. Unfortunately, Dragon Shisan’s facial expression remained unchanged in the face of such a powerful seal.
There was no doubt that this was an incomparably powerful seal, but compared to Dragon Shisan’s Battle Saint Technique, this was considered nothing.
Dragon Shisan attacked, striking out the Battling Symbol Art. It was incomparable to Qi Jin’s dharma seal. The light radiating from it illuminated the entire sky. Its dazzling brilliance enshrouded the entire martial arena.
Qi Jin exclaimed once more. Judging from the qi of Dragon Shisan’s attack alone, he knew that he had lost.
The battle between powerhouses didn’t need to be fancy. Qi Jin understood the power of his dharma seal very well. It was his most powerful attack, but after seeing Dragon Shisan’s Battle Saint Technique, he felt that he was just being overconfident.
The Battle Saint Technique collided with the powerful dharma seal. Countless sparks appeared in the void. If both of them hadn’t created a separate battlefield, the waves of the impact would have caused serious damage to Exquisite Paradise. Even so, some weaker disciples felt their soul trembling as they had sensed the huge pressure from the waves.
“Such a battle was somewhat shocking. The strength of these two are just too powerful. Even we, the senior elders, are no match for them. I’m afraid we will die instantly if we fight any one of them.”
“That’s right. There’s certainly a huge gap between us and these rare geniuses. This Dragon Shisan is indeed a true Battle Saint Ape. His combat strength is heaven-defying.”
Some of the higher-ups were astounded by what they saw. Such a battle was beyond their imagination. They couldn’t help but admit that they would be defeated the moment they entered the battlefield.
The sky above had become chaotic. Destructive energy was rolling everywhere. Innumerable gazes were looking for Qi Jin and saw him spurting out blood, his face turning pale, his qi began to run disorderly as though he had just come back from hell. Given his current condition, he might not even be able to exert half of his combat strength.
On the contrary, Dragon Shisan was still as powerful as before, bearing incredible dominance, with the Battle Saint Technique swirling around him. The golden brilliance emitted from his body was blinding.
The winner of this battle was already crystal clear at a glance.
“My god! The famous Qi Jin has actually lost the battle. He’s no match for Dragon Shisan. This is too unbelievable.”
“I feel that this is only normal. If Qi Jin came a few days ago to kill Dragon Shisan, he would’ve succeeded, because I heard that Dragon Shisan just advanced last night. He might have gotten some sort of treasure that allowed his cultivation base to advance two levels within a short period of time. Back when he was still in Golden Horizon, he could already kill geniuses who had higher cultivation base than him. So it isn’t surprising that he can defeat the late Immortal Venerable Qi Jin with just a cultivation base of intermediate Immortal Venerable.”
“That’s right. I have been to the Golden Horizon and seen the might of Dragon Shisan. Furthermore, he has also displayed his power in the son-in-law selection contest. So, it’s not difficult for him to kill an opponent that is one level higher than him.”
Many were astounded by the outcome of the battle, however some of them had already expected it. The people who had witnessed the might of Dragon Shisan felt that it was only logical that Qi Jin was defeated by Dragon Shisan. Qi Jin could only blame himself for picking the wrong time.
Qi Jin had left the Immortal Court a few days ago, heading for Eastern Profound Domain to kill Dragon Shisan. It was a pity that he had decided to mess up Dragon Shisan’s wedding.
This was no doubt a good idea, however he failed to anticipate the possibility that Dragon Shisan would grow so much after just a night.
