In the space between them, their hands became locked together. Yang Kai’s fist had violently attacked Nu Lang’s hands, but they had both caught each other’s attack and interlocked fingers to prevent the other from retreating.
At this moment, Yuan Qi from both of them simultaneously burst out, fiercely colliding within their palms.
“What?” Nu Lang was astonished. He discovered that Yang Kai’s Yuan Qi was more overbearing than his own and he wasn’t able to resist it for a long time.[How is this possible?] The difference between their strength was so large, it was impossible for Yang Kai to be a threat to him. But looking at the facts in front of him it looked like he couldn’t afford to be careless.
If he refused to back down now, perhaps his fingers would be burnt to a crisp.
Thinking about this Nu Lang hurriedly withdrew, jumping back several meters. While he was withdrawing he hastily dissolved the Yang Kai’s burning hot Yuan Qi which was invading his body.
Looking at Yang Kai, Nu Lang became even more surprised because his move had failed to break even one of Yang Kai’s fingers.
Although Yang Kai’s fingers had holes in them, it hadn’t gone as planned, with the grasp a moment ago he should have been able to crumble Yang Kai’s fist.[This boy… really have some methods. No wonder my brothers were all killed by him. Looks like it wasn’t just luck after all!] Nu Lang noticed that he was overly underestimating his opponent and was forced to become serious.
Nu Lang noticed that he was overly underestimating his opponent and was forced to become serious.
Yang Kai shook his fist, after looking down at his hands, when he lifted his head his eyes contained, even more, excitement and anticipation.
The uncertainty as to the outcome of this battle had made his blood boil with excitement. The feeling the pain from his wound, feeling the pressure from the enemy, all of this had made Yang Kai’s Unyielding Will to awaken.
The Unyielding Will to win and determination to rise, only this would lead to the awakening of his mysterious martial arts.
Finally, the moment had come!
Yang Kai didn’t need to suppress his strength anymore.
From deep within his bones, a boiling hot strength flowed into Yang Kai. With this power, Yang Kai felt like a whole new person.
Previously he had always accidentally triggered his Unyielding Will. During those times he would become a little perplexed because even though he would win he didn’t understand the reason for his win, it would also leave any nearby people bewildered.
But this time it was different, he could feel a huge quantity of energy pouring out from his bones into his meridians, nourishing his flesh and blood, promoting his strength crazily.
“Come again!” Yang Kai was like an apex predator in the jungle. His eyes were staring at Nu Lang stubbornly, Yang Kai shot forward like a bullet while punching out.
It was a basic punch just like the one moments ago.
“You Are Courting Death!” Nu Lang sneered, although he was surprised by Yang Kai’s Yuan Qi, based on Yang Kai’s strength he wouldn’t be able to hurt him. As long as he is able to receive his fist and dissolve his Yuan Qi it would be impossible for him to get injured.[Yang Kai will once again be injured by me, just like a moment ago! Only this time, his whole fist will be crushed!] It could be said that Yang Kai had chosen quite the rash method, which made Nu Lang looked confident in his ability to win this exchange.
Sneering, Nu Lang caught Yang Kai’s fist just like the previous time.
In the second confrontation, Nu Lang felt that something was not quite right because the might of Yang Kai’s fist had become greater than the punch a moment ago; the Yuan Qi it contained had also become fiercer than before.
Yang Kai’s strength suddenly reached the Initial Element Fifth Stage.
But how was this possible? Be it practitioners at the Initial Element Fourth Stage or Fifth Stage, in his eyes they were like commoners, they couldn’t threaten him, rather they can simply be killed with little effort.
In this confrontation, the injury on Yang Kai’s hand was becoming more serious. Blood dripped and Yang Kai moved back. Nu Lang was in hot pursuit, his fingers were cutting through the air with a howling sound, and in the darkness, Nu Lang was attacking Yang Kai repeatedly.
Yang Kai was silently dodging Nu Lang’s attacks. While Nu Lang was attacking Yang Kai was countering with his fists, left fist then right fist in a rhythmic manner. Although the injuries on his hands were not light, he was still able to block all of Nu Lang’s attacks. He couldn’t let Nu Lang have a chance to take his life.
Dull thumping sounds rang out in the dark night one after another, with each sound Yang Kai’s body would fall back several meters. The injury on his hand was becoming more and more serious.
But his eyes didn’t show the slightest hint of panic, but rather carried a determination; a will to win this fight had been born in his heart, he was simply waiting for the right moment to attack.
“How is this even possible?” Nu Lang had become completely shocked, however, at present it seemed like Nu Lang had the upper hand. After all, he was an entire boundary higher when compared to Yang Kai, if he was still unable to gain the upper hand then he had practiced these many years in vain.
Nu Lang swallowed his spit; his ten fingers had been burnt by Yang Kai’s hot Yuan Qi. Each of his fingers had been covered in blisters. His fingers felt like they were constantly on fire. Since one’s fingers are connected to one’s heart, moving his fingers made his heart become cold due to the pain.
If it was only this much then Nu Lang wouldn’t be shocked. What truly shocked him was the strength of Yang Kai.
In their first confrontation, Yang Kai was merely a trivial Initial Element Fourth Stage practitioner, such a level wasn’t sufficient to make him fear.
But during their second confrontation, he had achieved Initial Element Fifth Stage.
In the fourth clash, his strength had increased yet again, he had reached the Initial Element Sixth Stage.
The seventh clash, he reached the Initial Element Seventh Stage.
In the twelfth clash, he reached the Initial Element Eight Stage.
As he continues to fight, his strength continues to increase, which is a very sly, unique and unimaginable thing.
Moreover, this rise in strength was showing no signs of stopping.
Nu Lang had become dismayed; he didn’t know that Yang Kai could increase his strength nor to what degree he could. If he continued and reached the Qi Transformation Stage, he couldn’t hope to win, because the Yuan Qi of Yang Kai was too overbearing.
After a joss stick time had passed, Nu Lang had realized he was unable to directly confront Yang Kai. Nu Lang was not a dull-witted person, with each confrontation, Yang Kai’s body was becoming steadier, he was now, as steady as a rock, standing in the same place – motionless. On the contrary, after each strike, Nu Lang was suffering greater and greater amounts of backlash.
Nu Lang could only use his agility and his flexible style to look for a weakness in Yang Kai, attempting to strike Yang Kai a fatal blow.
But Yang Kai’s defences were simply overbearing, so much so that no weakness could be found.
Initial Element Ninth Stage! Nu Lang’s eyes trembled. He discovered that along with each confrontation, Yang Kai’s strength really did climb to another level; it had climbed directly to the peak of the Initial Element Boundary.
But with this his Yuan Qi finally calmed down, it no longer continued to increase. With this Nu Lang could finally let out a sigh of relief.
Although he was only at the Qi Transformation Stage First Level, which was just one level higher compared to the Initial Element Peak, this small gap of just one level represented a large gap in terms of strength.
Therefore Nu Lang had confidence in being able to strike a fatal blow against Yang Kai.
He increased his strength by eating a compounding drug, which one he didn’t know. But no matter which compounding drug he ate, there certainly would be consequences. Yang Kai was originally at the Initial Element Fourth Stage and thus, his current storage capacity of Yuan Qi was still limited to this, he was unable to store the same quantity of Yuan Qi as someone truly of the Initial Element Peak Stage. Nu Lang just needed to wait for Yang Kai’s strength to be used up and then he would be able to strike a fatal blow.
