Right at this moment…
“Look, what’s that?” someone shouted in surprise, pointing at the Frozen Peak in the distance.
On top of the Frozen Peak, a figure had quietly appeared on a platform in the south.
The man wore all white, and even his hair and eyebrows were as white as snow. He had a handsome face and cold eyes. The man stood quietly like a pile of frozen snow. However, without him making any obvious moves, layers of snow-colored airflow swirled around his body, and the water rippled. In the end, he wrapped himself inside the entire ice mountain. His figure was looming like an unworldly immortal.
Many experts were shocked.
Because this white-haired figure was standing there, but they couldn’t feel his aura at all.
“It’s Mu Tianyang!”
“The Prodigy has come!”
Many Snow Province warriors watching in the distance became excited.
One of the two contenders who had agreed to the challenge had finally appeared.
There was only less than half an hour left before sunrise. The former number one of the younger generation in Snow Province had made his appearance. Some people saw the face of the Child Prodigy for the first time, but they couldn’t suppress their amazement. He was indeed the legend of the generation, stately beyond imagination.
“He is Mu Tianyang. Haha, interesting!” The fat man touched his chin and smiled, behaving nothing like an expert. “Now Brother Ding will meet a rival. This kid is much stronger than when he was on the ancient westbound road!”
The lanky young man with a sword on his back said thoughtfully, “There is a very strange aura hidden inside him!”
There were a lot of discussions floating around.
Some powerful sects from other provinces had to put away their arrogance and re-evaluate their attitudes toward this legend of Snow Province, because the aura Mu Tianyang showed outshone many people.
At this time, the dark clouds that had been whistling in the sky began to slowly disperse.
A ray of golden sunlight shone over, passing through the endless darkness of the ice mountains in the distance.
“Haha, it is the time for battle. Why hasn’t Ding Hao come yet? Does he not dare to show up?” On the ice mountain, Feng Chao—the commander of the Mysterious Frost Holy Guard—laughed loudly, intending to slander Ding Hao. His thunderous voice was spread around.
But right at this moment…
The wisp of golden light coming from the horizon suddenly became extremely clear, like a comet falling from the sky with a long trail of light. Its blazing fire cut through the void with a rumble. Wherever it passed, the snow and ice crystals evaporated, leaving a trace of flame and unparalleled momentum.
At this moment, everyone was stunned at the sight of the fire pillar.
The unparalleled fire pillar had stirred all of them.
The earth-shattering pillar of fire landed on the ice peak, at the back of the twin peaks. However, it suddenly disappeared, as if it had never existed. The entire ice peak resumed its silence, as if not even a spec of ice had been stirred.
At the moment when the fire disappeared, a handsome young man in cyan clothes with sword-like eyebrows and sharp eyes appeared on the ice pillar. He stood tall and mighty, like an immortal coming to the earth.
Ding Hao, the Saber and Sword Addict, had also made his appearance.
In comparison, Mu Tianyang had appeared without warning, just like a ghost, while Ding Hao’s appearance was undoubtedly more imposing. There were still clear traces in the gray sky, as if the whole sky had been torn into two pieces.
In the distance, a wisp of golden sunlight slowly fell along the trace and dyed the top of the two peaks golden, as if it were Heaven.
The lanky young man with a sword on his back said softly, “Brother Ding’s strength has improved again!”
The fat man laughed and said, “Come on, his Qi cultivation will never represent his real combat capability. Anyway, I have never been able to gauge his level!”
They thought of the encounters in the Sage Battlefield. It was indeed so. Ding Hao had only appeared to be a Great Grandmaster, but he killed the Demon Royals again and again as if he were cutting vegetables. He was a true monster. It was impossible to measure his combat capability with the said realm.
On the two summits of Frozen Peak.
Mu Tianyang stood quietly on the South Peak. His whole body was snow-white, emitting a cold aura, like an eternal ice peak.
Ding Hao stood on the north peak, surrounded by a strange aura that blocked the wind and snow within a ten-meter radius.
“I didn’t expect to see the little man reach such a level.” Mu Tianyang looked at Ding Hao as if he were sighing with emotion.
No one knew whether he regretted it or not.
He had let Ding Hao go in the primeval forest and had probably never taken the so-called Three-year Promise seriously in the beginning. The little nominal disciple of the Swordsmanship-seeking Sect couldn’t even bear his momentum in the past, but he had later become a notable master in Snow Province and even in the Northern Region, whose strength rivaled him. This was something he had never expected.
At the moment, the entire Snow Province still had doubts about Ding Hao’s feats in the Sage Battlefield.
However, as a person who had experienced it, Mu Tianyang naturally knew how formidable Ding Hao was right then.
“It’s no use saying more. Shall we start the fight?” Ding Hao looked calm.
“I regret not killing you with one stroke. Now, you have become fully-fledged, first killing my brother, and then my master. Ding Hao, the hatred between you and me is as deep as the sea. Today, we won’t stop until we die. I swear to God that I will kill you.”
Lu Xiongfei was Mu Tianyang’s master. Ding Hao had killed Lu Xiongfei in the War God Square to settle a blood feud.
However, the grudges between them couldn’t be simply summed up in a single sentence.
Ding Hao looked calm and innocent, without any traces of guilt. He said quietly, “People who kill are the ones to be killed. Mu Disheng and Lu Xiongfei had acted so unjustly that they deserved it. I killed them but my conscience is clear. However, that is a lot of nonsense from you today. This is not your style.”
“After so many years, it’s not easy to find a human martial artist of the same generation in Snow Province who can fight with me. My words are only for those who are qualified and you can barely be counted as one.” Mu Tianyang did not show any arrogance. He said in a matter-of-fact tone, “It’s a pity that after today’s battle, there will be no Ding Hao in the world. These few more words will be my farewell to you before you die. This is also your honor.”
Ding Hao laughed out loud.
“You are being conceited. When the Tranquility Academy attacked us, you were still in the Sage Battlefield. I don’t think you know anything about it, so you weren’t deeply involved. However, you killed my senior brother Ma Yifei in the Heaven Valley battle. That is a blood debt.” Ding Hao was not infuriated. Instead, he thought about it and said, “In the past, I killed your elder brother. No matter the cause, it is reasonable for you to try to kill me for revenge. The grievances between you and me are deeply rooted. If I beat you today, I will make an exception and only break one arm of yours. Next time we meet, I will kill you.”
“Ha? Hahaha!” Mu Tianyang laughed, but even his laughter was as cold as ice. “Ding Hao, you are too naive. You have no idea what strength I have now. But I have seen you in the Sage Battlefield. You are in the dark, but I am not.”
“Power is everything. I can kill anyone with one strike, including god.” Ding Hao was extremely confident.
The conversation between the two geniuses was not suppressed, so it was clearly heard by the people around them. The experts from foreign provinces knew that Ding Hao had made great achievements in the Sage Battlefield, so they were not surprised. The local martial artists, however, were a little confused.
It sounded as if Mu Tianyang wasn’t too confident in facing Ding Hao. Did something marvelous really happen in the Sage Battlefield?
Mu Tianyang finally stopped talking.
Having tested each other with words, he found that Ding Hao had a determined martial heart. He couldn’t overwhelm Ding Hao with his momentum.
For so many years, he had been the only peer expert who stood in front of him with such confidence.
For some unknown reason, Mu Tianyang’s eyes suddenly fell on the girl in red standing on the ice peak in the distance, who was surrounded by Phoenix Fire. A trace of softness flashed in his ever-cold eyes, to later disappear.
Then he quickly looked away.
His eyes fell on the snow-white long sword in his hand. He pressed the hilt of the sword with his palm and slowly pulled it out.
The snow-white cold light poured out of the sheath, like a flood in an unstoppable manner.
Surging out with it was Mu Tianyang’s momentum and killing intent.
As every inch of the long sword was exposed, there was an increase in his momentum. The killing intent that permeated his whole body became more bitingly cold.
In the blink of an eye, Mu Tianyang’s aura had surpassed the Peak of the Martial King realm and reached the Martial Royal realm.
As Ding Hao expected, he had indeed entered the Martial Royal Realm.
Like a storm, the Qi Power was released from Mu Tianyang’s body, spreading all over the South Peak; it stirred up snow and ice, as if he were the center of this world.
The onlookers of the battle were also shocked by the strength of this young genius, especially the martial artists of Snow Province. For the first time, they had felt power of such magnitude. There was an irrepressible tremor in the depths of their souls, and their eyes were full of horror, as if they had seen the most terrible scene in the world.
Was this the real power of Mu Tianyang, the Prodigy?
The power of the Royal Realm.
It was definitely the highest level that the warriors in Snow Province could reach.
At this moment, many people had already agreed: for this battle, Mu Tianyang was still the top-notch figure who could not be challenged. He was superior to everyone and everything.
It was at this time that Ding Hao responded.
He took a deep breath and spread out his hands in the void.
The rusted sword and the magic sword appeared in his hands at the same time.
