King of Gods - chapter-40
With the judge’s announcement, the people broke out of their daze. This
result was totally unexpected. Being a black horse, Zhao Feng continued
to dominate his opponents and create miracles!
Now he had beaten the third strongest inner disciple, Zhao Han. Zhao Feng
laughed as he sat down on the third seat of the first row.
On his right side was Zhao Chi, who was looking at him as if it was the
first time he had seen him. When the outer disciples contest had ended,
Zhao Chi went over to inspect Zhao Feng, but at that time, Zhao Feng was
utter trash compared to him.
After Zhao Chi beat Zhao Qin, he casually said that no one had the right
to fight for the top three spots. However, right now, Zhao Feng was
sitting next to him. The top three were now Zhao Linlong, Zhao Chi, and
Next it was Zhao Chi’s turn to challenge someone. Zhao Chi lazily
stretched his back and landed on the stage.
“Number two Zhao Chi, who do you challenge?” the judge smiled.
Being number two, who else could he challenge? Instantly, everyone’s
eyes turned towards Zhao Linlong.
Now that Zhao Chi had gone onstage, there was no one blocking his vision
from looking at Zhao Linlong. Zhao Linlong wore a golden robe. He had
thick black eyebrows, and an aura as deep as the sea.
Since the beginning of the tournament Zhao Linlong had kept his eyes
closed. Even when Zhao Feng defeated Zhao Han, he had remained
expressionless, as if nothing mattered to him.

“Zhao Linlong, give me some face. Come onstage,” Zhao Chi said
“Number one, Zhao Linlong,” the judge warned.
“Hmm.” Zhao Linlong slowly rose.
The moment he stood up, he turned into a golden blur. Instantly, he
“How are there so many Zhao Linlong’s?”
“After-image! So fast!” the crowd exclaimed. Many spectators
couldn’t even see how Zhao Linlong moved.
“What kind of footwork skill is that? It’s so complex.” Zhao
Feng’s brow furrowed. Although he could see how Zhao Linlong moved with
his left eye, he couldn’t see any flaws.
“Zhao Linlong, we haven’t met for half a year. It looks like your
Step Shadow skill has reached the peak level. No wonder you’re one of
the fourth geniuses of Sun Feather City.” Zhao Chi was slightly
Step Shadow was a high ranked martial art. Its fame exceeded most other
high ranked martial arts due to its superiority.

Peak level of a high ranked martial art!
The disciples could only watch in awe. There was no second genius of the
Zhao sect who could train a high ranked martial art to the peak level.
“Zhao Chi, you’re the only one who can give me a fight. Today, I will
suppress my cultivation to the fourth rank and spar with you,” Zhao
Linlong said casually.
Immediately, the other disciples expressions turned dark. There was no
one apart from Zhao Chi who had the right to challenge him? Zhao
Linlong’s words caused many to be unhappy.
How would the number three, number four, and number five feel?
Zhao Feng’s eyebrows scrunched up, then immediately resumed normal.
Ever since he had seen the shy girl attack the powerful Hyena in the Sky
Cloud Forest, Zhao Feng understood something: There was always someone
stronger than you.
He was working towards the greater realm. He wanted to explore the
“Hateful! That Zhao Linlong…”
Sitting on the sixth seat of the second row, Zhao Han’s face was
unwilling. Just a while ago, his cultivation had increased by leaps and
bounds. His Inner Strength had reached the peak of the fifth rank,
approaching the sixth rank.
This had made him arrogant and a contender for the top inner disciple. In
terms of favoritism, he had surpassed Zhao Chi.
However, Zhao Linlong’s words hit him into hell. And because he had
just lost to Zhao Feng, he had no right to speak out against him.
At this time, the battle began.
“Sky Howling Fist!”
Zhao Chi’s fist started to glow red. Zhao Chi’s Sky Howling Fist was
very similar to Zhao Feng’s Angry Dragon Fist, but the ranks of the
martial arts were one tier apart.
With Zhao Chi fully utilizing Sky Howling Fist, his strength crept
towards the peak of the fifth rank. Adding on his footwork, body
strengthening skills and techniques, his damage scale was frightening.
“In terms of overall strength, Zhao Chi is indeed harder to fight than
Zhao Han. He has almost zero flaws, and his offense is also powerful,”
Zhao Feng nodded his head.
Zhao Han suppressed his opponents by overpowering them with Inner
Strength, but his speed and defense weren’t strong.
“Receive my punch!” Zhao Chi shouted onstage as his fist swept
towards Zhao Linlong.
A broken after-image was left behind. The next moment, Zhao Linlong
appeared smiling faintly next to Zhao Chi.
Zhao Chi’s fist didn’t even touch his robe.
What was even more frightening was that Zhao Linlong was only half a
meter away from him. Zhao Chi broke out in cold sweat. At this instant,
he could even smell Zhao Linlong.
“Smoking Rain Step!”
Zhao Chi wasn’t useless. Immediately, he used a high ranked footwork
skill and started to exchange blows with Zhao Linlong.
Immediately, the two figures interwove. Both of them used high ranked
The reason why Zhao Linlong said that Zhao Chi was the only one who could
fight him was because Zhao Chi had learned a lot of high ranked martial
High ranked fist skill! High ranked footwork skill! High ranked body
strengthening technique…all of these skills had been trained to a high
Zhao Chi continuously attacked with these skills. Now his momentum had
surpassed Zhao Linlong. Although his momentum had exceeded Zhao Linlong,
Zhao Chi was still pushed back. After exchanging twenty blows, Zhao
Linlong had steadily overpowered him with the cultivation of the fourth
“I’ll make you lose willingly!” Zhao Linlong smiled faintly.
He raised his finger and a purple azure aura spun around in circles.
Just the thread of Inner Strength sent out a frightening aura.
“Spatial Cloud Finger!”
That finger seemed to open a hole in the clouds. That was…
Zhao Chi took a deep breath as he gathered all his Inner Strength to
counter the finger.
“Sky Howling Leaping Thunder!” Zhao Chi’s fist glowed fire red as
it faced the finger.
The power of this fist exceeded any skill that had been used so far in
the tournament. But, although his fist seemed powerful, it seemed like it
was an ant compared to the casual finger of Zhao Linlong.
The two moves finally clashed. Zhao Chi immediately tasted iron inside
his mouth as he was knocked backwards.
“Not bad, you’re able to block my peak ranked martial art.” A
golden-robed youth reappeared with his hands behind his back.
“Peak ranked martial art? I didn’t lose unjustly,” Zhao Chi said
bitterly as he surrendered.
Spatial Cloud Finger!
Peak ranked martial art!
The crowd was in shock. When did Zhao Linlong learn a peak ranked martial
“Hehe, Zhao Linlong has already learned the first three moves of the
Spatial Cloud Finger. That was just the first one,” the head of the
sect Zhao TIancang said proudly.
“Congratulations for taking in such a good step-son.” The elders came
over and congratulated the head of the sect.
Zhao Linlong was the step-son of the head of the sect! No wonder he could
learn peak ranked martial arts. But the thing was that peak ranked
martial arts usually needed one to reach the seventh rank of the martial
path to understand them. Those that could learn peak ranked skills were
usually Martial Masters!
“Zhao Chi! Challenge failed, rank not changed. Zhao Linlong, rank not
changed,” the judge announced.
Zhao Linlong and Zhao Chi returned to their seats. Zhao Linlong was
expressionless and didn’t challenge anyone. In his opinion, there was
no one left to challenge.
The first round of the challenging contest ended. Next was the second
round of the challenging contest. There were a total of three chances to
challenge someone per person.
There were barely any challengers in the second round. But when it came
to number sixteen, Zhao Han’s turn, he immediately challenged number
four Zhao Qin and won.
He continued by challenging number two Zhao Chi and number one Zhao
Linlong. The result was that he managed to tie with Zhao Chi by using his
But when he met Zhao Linlong, Zhao Han was defeated in three moves. He
wasn’t like Zhao Chi, who had absolute defense, so he couldn’t fend
off even three of Zhao Linlong’s moves.
First place Zhao Linlong…second place Zhao Chi…third place Zhao
Feng…fourth place Zhao Han.
They were the top four inner disciples. No one dared to challenge them.
Out of the four, Zhao Linlong led in front by beating Zhao Chi and Zhao
Han. Only Zhao Feng had not crossed hands with Zhao Linlong from the top
“Third place Zhao Feng, it’s your turn to challenge someone,” the
