Song Fan stabbed with his spear repeatedly, instantly sending 49 snake energies out, each as powerful as a third-stage Sovereign. His attack was not something ordinary disciples could block. One ought to admit that Song Fan truly had an incredible mastery over his spear. His endless stream of attacks was almost impossible to guard against.
Xiang Shaoyun wanted to compete against him properly, so he only used his water star instead of making use of his speed to obtain instant victory. The sea surrounded Lonesoul Island, allowing Xiang Shaoyun to borrow an unending stream of water energy from his surroundings. Even with a single water star, he was able to perfectly match Song Fan. Of course, he still needed some effort to fully defeat Song Fan.
Song Fan was completely surprised by Xiang Shaoyun’s extraordinary combat prowess, and his overbearing attacks were perfectly blocked by Xiang Shaoyun, who was also sending an unending stream of counterattacks toward him. In fact, his arms were starting to numb from the impact of their clashes. One ought to know that Xiang Shaoyun’s cultivation was two stages lower than his.
The fact that Song Fan couldn’t defeat an opponent with such a gap in cultivation surprised not only him but also the other disciples. Song Fan was one of the True Martial Academy’s 18 ninth-stage Dragon Ascension Realm freaks. His ability to punch above his weight was among the greatest in his academy, and yet now, he was. .h.i.tting a wall against a kid two stages below him. It felt unreal.
Xiang Chenxi was fully focused on Xiang Shaoyun. When he found that Xiang Shaoyun was using the power of water, he heaved a breath of relief. His astonishment toward Xiang Shaoyun’s strength grew as he muttered, “Looks like he’s only someone with similar looks. But this kid’s combat strength is rather impressive. If I can recruit him, he will become a capable helper.”
Song Fan couldn’t accept the fact that Xiang Shaoyun could actually block his attacks. He decided to end this quickly and not give Xiang Shaoyun any chance to counterattack.
“This ends here,” said Song Fan. At this moment, his una.s.suming face no longer looked una.s.suming. After pus.h.i.+ng Xiang Shaoyun off with his spear, he twirled his weapon, seemingly becoming one with his spear as it shot toward Xiang Shaoyun.
Instantly, Song Fang became a snake that transformed into a dragon. His boundless power grew unendingly, as though he was undergoing some sort of evolution. It alarmed everyone in the area. As Xiang Shaoyun prepared to block the attack, the dragon split into eight and charged him from eight different directions.
Dragon Transformation Clone!
The eight dragons looked completely different, yet each of them looked incomparably real. It was impossible to distinguish the real body from the clones because all eight were exuding similar auras.
The Dragon Transformation Clone was one of Song Fan’s trump cards, a technique that had defeated countless opponents before. He was confident he could defeat Xiang Shaoyun with the attack. Unfortunately for him, Xiang Shaoyun’s gift of instincts was incredibly effective, and it instantly pinpointed Song Fan’s real body. Xiang Shaoyun soared into the air and ignored the clones as he swung his saber at Song Fan’s real body.
Seven Overlapping Waves Slas.h.!.+
Xiang Shaoyun had already pushed the battle technique to its limits. His Shark Devourer Saber shone brightly as he used the full power of the profundity of water. As though he had transformed into a shark, he charged with the waves cras.h.i.+ng toward Song Fan.
Song Fan had not imagined that his real body would be discovered so quickly. Even so, it did not matter much to him because his real body was already prepared to launch a follow-up attack. At the exact instant the two clashed, Song Fan’s follow-up attack lashed out abruptly, catching Xiang Shaoyun by surprise.
Once again, Song Fan transformed as his real body split into several additional bodies and attacked from Xiang Shaoyun’s flanks. It all happened in a single instant, and a regular person would not be able to guard against Song Fan’s attack.
Repeat Dragon Transformation!
The terrifying dragon head bit at Xiang Shaoyun, not giving him a chance to escape. It seemed like Xiang Shaoyun was on the verge of being killed. Ouyang Chuanqi, Han Chenfei, Tang Longfei, and the others felt like their hearts were about to pop out of their mouths from anxiousness.
They could sense the great pressure emanated by Song Fan and were afraid that Xiang Shaoyun would really fall. Alas, they were too far away to provide any help in time. Song Fan’s spear stabbed at Xiang Shaoyun’s throat, but the moment the spear hit, Song Fan expression changed, and he quickly retreated, not daring to spend even a single moment where he was.
It turned out that Xiang Shaoyun had moved away with the Phantom s.h.i.+ft at the last moment. Xiang Shaoyun was about to unleash a storm of a counterattack, but Song Fan had fled far away. Xiang Shaoyun was even amazed at how quickly Song Fan had reacted.
“I admit that you’re a remarkable cultivator. Unfortunately, you will die today,” said Song Fan as he gazed at Xiang Shaoyun from far away. Evidently, he hadn’t been using his full power at all. He was finally going to now.
“Is that so? I think the same about you as well,” replied Xiang Shaoyun nonchalantly.
Song Fan took in a deep breath and put the spear away. He slowly spread open both hands, and the ambient wood energy in the area started converging around him. A terrifying green radiance burst out of his body, and the phantom of an ancient vine appeared behind him. Numerous vines swayed about in the air, and instantly, tens of thousands of them shot toward Xiang Shaoyun.
Myriad Vines Snake Transformation!
Like a demonic vine, Song Fan roared and a.s.serted his control over the s.p.a.ce around him, locking any of Xiang Shaoyun’s possible escape routes. He attacked with all his strength, confident that this much was enough to defeat his opponent.
Naturally, Xiang Shaoyun wouldn’t stand around and wait for death. He smiled coldly and said, “Yes, it’s about time we end this pointless fight.”
His aura went through a sudden change as purple and red energy burst out of his body. Lightning and astral flames started forming in the sky above, instantly covering the entire area of the attacking vines.
Lightning Calamity Fiery Star!
The entire world seemed to shake from the attack. The disciples around them were overwhelmed with shock. They quickly withdrew, fearful that a stray attack would hit them. Both lightning and flame were extremely destructive powers.
When the two combined, they would give rise to a power that was greater than the sum of its parts. Song Fan felt his scalp numb, but at this point, he was left with no choice but to brace for collision.
The result of this battle was about to be decided, but something else happened abruptly at that moment.
