Chapter 84: Sisters’ battle (part 5)
As soon as Murong Qingyan softly uttered her command, the little lightsaber like a nimble white ribbon with golden streaks lunged at Murong Qingxue.
This lightsaber not only was smaller in size than Murong Qingxue’s greatsword, it was also much swifter and fiercer, not to mention that it had a certain aura, and the closer it got to Murong Qingxue, the more bloodthirsty it became. Fear and apprehension seized spectators by merely looking at it. It was clear, that such a fierce would deal a heavy blow to Murong Qingxue.
Looking at the drawing closer lightsaber, Murong Qingxue clearly felt if she got hit, she would lose her life or end up half-dead. She wanted to escape, but at this point, she no longer had any means to.
Her current cultivation was a mere early stage of Foundation Establishment, using Xuan Li to materialize the greatsword was already difficult for her. For a sole purpose of dealing with Murong Qingyan she expended all of her energy, forcing all of the Xuan Li in her body into action. Now she didn’t have any strength left to evade this attack.
Spectators also were looking on with heavy hearts. Murong Xiong secretly prayed that Murong Qingxue could escape this predicament as soon as possible. Else, the wound she’d receive from this attack be definitely severe. Back in Murong family, talented youths were aplenty, but those with a talent like Murong Qingxue were rare gems. Over the years he had been pouring a lot of efforts and resources into nurturing her.
Nangong Ye, who had been carefully observing the match, hadn’t said a word, but judging by his tightly clenched fists and gloomy face, it could be seen that his heart was anything but calm.
Others, though, were either shocked or dumbfounded by Murong Qingyan’s display of ability. No one could imagine, that in this competition the girl, who was known as a waste all her life, would show such strength and skill.
Ultimately, Murong Qingxue didn’t succeed in blocking an attack. Right in front of everyone’s eyes, the lightsaber passed through her, piercing her abdomen, still flew some distance and then, faded away.
The instant the lightsaber disappeared, Murong Qingxue wildly spurted blood once more. Just a moment ago she suffered a rebound from her own attack, and now she suffered even worse injuries.
Although on the surface the attack didn’t leave any wounds, Murong Qingxue actually felt that her five viscera and six bowels¹ were thrown in a disorder. She was very clear, she neither stood any chance at defeating Murong Qingyan anymore nor could she withdraw.
She looked up and hatefully glared at Murong Qingyan.
In her worst nightmares, she had never thought of losing to Murong Qingyan. Worse yet, she was unable to imagine, how her reputation would plummet after today’s competition.
“Murong Qingxue, just a while ago, were you not blindly trying to persuade me to withdraw and admit defeat?” Murong Qingyan mocked Murong Qingxue, whose hostility was plain to see. “Now, who is the one who actually has to throw in the towel, m? It seems like the only thing you can do is talk big, but you can’t withstand even a single blow, ah.”
“Murong Qingyan, you’re courting death!” Hearing Murong Qingyan’s words, Murong Qingxue ground her teeth with extreme loathing, and even desperately rushed ahead at Murong Qingyan, going all out.
“Since you don’t want to admit defeat, then don’t blame me.”
Murong Qingyan’s eyes dimly lit up for a second, then she immediately moved forward, throwing a fist straight at Murong Qingxue’s face.
