Martial World - chapter-280
Up until now, Ouyang Ming hadn’t encountered many top masters. He had
only faced off against Fang Qi, Mugu Jirong, and Huan Xiaodie. Of these
three matches, he had emerged victorious through overwhelming
superiority; he hadn’t been forced to show any of his true strength.
However, no one doubted Ouyang Ming’s power. In the last Total Faction
Martial Meeting, he had defeated Jiang Baoyun for the first time. He was
once considered as the one with the highest chances of becoming the next
Martial Meeting champion, but he never imagined that Jiang Baoyun would
recover from his loss and become a terrifying presence that occupied the
spotlight and suppressed Ouyang Ming.
In comparison to Ouyang Ming who hadn’t faced any great obstacles on
his way to a string of complete victories, Lin Ming could be said to have
had to overcome one great hardship after another. Now, Lin Ming’s fame
was only inferior to Jiang Baoyun and Mugu Buyu, and was tied with Ouyang
As the referee announced the start of the match, the arena began to buzz
with excitement. The crowd was neatly divided in half for those who
favored Lin Ming and those who favored Ouyang Ming.
Many of the Acacia Faction disciples were screaming out cheers for Ouyang
Ming. In comparison, the cheers for the visiting Lin Ming were much
weaker. Besides the martial artists of the 36 countries cheering for him,
there were the young girls of the Zither Faction who had good impressions
On the martial stage, Ouyang Ming was dressed in complete white, and he
held an iron folding fan in his hand. His long black hair was tied back
with a silk ribbon, and he looked just like a handsome royal son. From
his head to his toes, he had the makings of a jade tree facing the gentle
As a disciple of the Acacia Faction, Ouyang Ming naturally had hordes of
cawing girls by his side, and groups of wives and concubines. Even so,
there were still many young and beautiful girls that threw themselves at
him of their own initiative. One reason was because Ouyang Ming’s looks
were simply outstanding like a heavenly prince, and the second reason was
because of Ouyang Ming’s status as a core disciple. If they could
follow by his side, they would be able to obtain more resources and break
through to the Pulse Condensation period easier.

away from Ouyang Ming, Lin Ming was standing straight, holding a long
silver spear in his hand. His posture was upright and steady. Because Lin
Ming had been practicing a Body Transformation cultivation method of the
highest rank for the past six months, his body had been maturing at a
very high rate. Although he was only 16 years old now, he wasn’t much
shorter than the tall and handsome Ouyang Ming.
“This boy, I don’t know what the limit of his strength is…” As
Ouyang Ming faced Lin Ming, he had a faint feeling in his heart that he
wouldn’t be able to win. It was the same feeling as if he was looking
at Mugu Buyu.
Before this point, he never imagined that he would be pressured so much
by a disciple from the 36 countries.
Lin Ming was a well-rounded fighter, he was simply versatile in all
aspects of combat. Such a person was a very rare existence. Most geniuses
had a particular advantage that served as their point of superiority, but
they also had a corresponding weakness to go with it. For instance, Qin
Wuxin’s attacks were invisible and formless and they were difficult to
avoid; but once one was able to close in on her and engage in close-range
battle, one would basically have won.
As for Huo Yanluo and Zhang Yanzhao, those two had an incomparably
overwhelming offensive attack power, but their true combat prowess was
limited. Once one dodged their attacks, they would easily lose. Even if
it was someone like Jiang Lanjian who seemed to be a versatile fighter,
he still had weaknesses in his insufficient attack momentum and his weak
Because of the different strengths and weaknesses of geniuses, they would
usually serve to restrain each other. As long as they had the same
strength and the same talent, victory would be settled by which skills
held advantages over others.
But as for Lin Ming, he was simply an all-around combat king. His aura
was formidable, and his spear was fierce and sharp. His attacks contained
the Concept of Wind, making them incomparably swift. There wasn’t even
need to mention his defensive capabilities. He had been able to take
Jiang Lanjian’s full attack strike head-on and come out with only a few
scratches! In terms of movement speed, his agility was simply like gods
and ghosts – there was almost no weakness to him!
Against a master who didn’t seem to have any weaknesses at all, Ouyang
Ming just didn’t know what he could do to win.
As the match officially started, Ouyang Ming didn’t bother saying any
useless words. He unfolded the iron fan in his hands.
“Absolute Life Purple Flame!”
Visit lightnovelworld.com for the best novel reading experienceWith a
‘chi chi’ sound, a massive purple flame burst out from his iron fan,
blazing in the air like an inferno. This purple fire was a much deeper
color than the Purple Flame Bone Lance that had been used by Ouyang
The purple inferno fired towards Lin Ming, and a bone chilling energy
rolled off in front it. This freezing cold flame was incomparably strange.
Azure true essence erupted forth. Lin Ming took a step forwards and
thrust out with his spear. 10,000 vibrating true essence filaments
savagely ran out.
The purple flames immediately disintegrated; they had been scattered by
Flow like Silk.
After reaching the early Pulse Condensation period, combined with the
power of the Flow like Silk breakthrough, the strength of Lin Ming’s
past vibrating true essence could not compare to its current incarnation.
Ouyang Ming’s expression suddenly changed for the worse. Although he
hadn’t held on to any hope that the purple flames would be able to
defeat Lin Ming, he hadn’t thought that Lin Ming would so easily
destroy his flames.
“Purple Flame Bone Lance!”
“Scythe of the Death God!”

Ming gave a loud shout, and a purple bone lance made of fire appeared by
his side. Compared to Ouyang Zifeng, it was as if Ouyang Ming’s bone
lance instantly appeared by his side, shooting forwards without even
needing any time to condense his true essence. Not only that, but as he
flourished his fan, a purple scythe appeared, flying forwards to cut off
Lin Ming’s head!
Facing this roaring attack, Lin Ming maintained a completely indifferent
expression. His feet moved and his speed instantly achieved the limit.
A shadow blurred, and Lin Ming broke through a narrow gap between the
Purple Flame Bone Lance and Scythe of the Death God. His spear was
wreathed in arcs of lightning; it contained the Concept of Wind and power
of thunder, thrusting straight towards Ouyang Ming’s side!
Ouyang Ming’s heart went cold and he instantly drew back. At the same
time, he waved his fan back and forth, and clouds of purple flame seemed
to blossom in front of him, forming layers of defensive fire that
protected his body!
10,000 filaments of vibrating azure true essence rampaged out. The thick
coils of thunder were just like massive purple snakes that twisted in a
frenzy. The purple barriers of flame were only able to resist for a split
second before being torn apart by the spear!
Seeing the cold spearpoint come towards him, Ouyang Ming’s pupils
contracted. He hadn’t imagined that a casual spear thrust of Lin
Ming’s had achieved such a terrifying degree of strength. It had even
broken through three of his purple flame cloud shields!
He instantly realized that if he was struck even once by this spear, he
would lose without a doubt. When Lin Ming had faced Fang Qi, a single
spear of his had broken through five continuous Nine Circles of Blue
Light Arrays. Ouyang Ming was confident, but he didn’t believe that the
true essence that protected his body was any stronger than five layers of
Nine Circles of Blue Light Arrays.
This Lin Ming, his attack power was too abnormal!

Ouyang Ming’s body instantly turned into a series of shadows, evading
the spear by dancing on the edge of destruction.
“Movement martial skill?” Lin Ming watched as Ouyang Ming flitted
around like a butterfly hovering over flowers, his form drifting from end
to end. This was obviously an extremely gorgeous and sublime avoidance
movement skill. There were over a dozen images that seemed real and fake
at the same time; it was impossible for a normal martial artist to
distinguish just where Ouyang Ming’s true self was. It was futile to
attack, one could only passively leave themselves vulnerable to attack.
Not only that, but it was futile to guess just where Ouyang Ming’s
attack came from.
However, to Lin Ming, none of this was a problem. He simply closed his
eyes and let his soul force fuse into the Concept of Wind. Suddenly, Lin
Ming’s figure disappeared!
Lin Ming used the same constant Foundation Spear Technique and swept out
into space. But in the moment that Lin Ming swept out with his spear,
Ouyang Ming appeared just under the spearhead as if he had ran into it.
Ouyang Ming’s instantly paled. His Butterflies Dance on 100 Flowers had
been seen through in a single try!!??
At this time Ouyang Ming could not evade, collision was inevitable. He
had to take this attack head-on!
The iron fan opened, and Ouyang Ming cried out, pushing all of the true
essence within his body to the limit. A bluish purple evil flame shrieked
as it ran out of the iron fan, directly cleaving towards the spearpoint.
Visit lightnovelworld.com for the best novel reading experienceBang!
The bluish purple evil flame smashed against the purple thunder, the
power of thunderbolts exploded out!
In the moment that the iron fan struck the spearpoint, Ouyang Ming felt
as if he had chopped against a mountain. 10,000 vibrating true essence
filaments cascaded forth and an incomparably vast peerless vibration
directly cracked apart Ouyang Ming’s grip, causing his right arm to
lose all feeling.
Ouyang Ming felt as if his chest had been hit by a massive hammer. There
was a tangy copper taste in the back of his throat, and Ouyang Ming spat
out a mouthful of blood as he flew backwards and struck the martial
stage’s protective barrier.
This unexpected result caused the entire audience to pause, slack-jawed.
Even Jiang Lanjian who usually highly respected Lin Ming’s abilities
was looking at this scene, an extremely incredulous expression coloring
Ouyang Ming, who had ranked third place during the last Total Faction
Martial Meeting was defeated so easily?
The truth was that Jiang Lanjian had expected that Lin Ming would win.
However, he thought that the two contestants would have a fierce dogfight
where each one would use hidden card after hidden card, finally ending
with Lin Ming as victor through a small advantage. He hadn’t expected
that Lin Ming would prevail in less than 20 moves.
“How did Ouyang Ming lose so easily? Doesn’t he have any more cards
in his hands?” Jiang Lanjian just couldn’t believe this. He had also
lost to Ouyang Ming during the last Total Faction Martial Meeting, and
this time, he didn’t have much confidence that he would be able to
defeat Ouyang Ming. However, Lin Ming had actually defeated Ouyang Ming
Jiang Baoyun slowly said, “Ouyang Ming already used the cards in his
hands, and that was his Perfect fifth stage of the ‘Divine Acacia
Power’. Absolute Life Purple Flame and Scythe of the Death God are both
moves that can only be used after reaching the fifth layer of the
‘Divine Acacia Power’. It’s just that they were easily broken by
Lin Ming. Many people didn’t see just how strong Ouyang Ming’s
attacks were… it’s not that Ouyang Ming is weak, but that Lin Ming is
too strong. After breaking through to the Pulse Condensation period, his
strength has soared past what it once was!”
Visit lightnovelworld.com for the best novel reading experienceJiang
Baoyun took a deep breath. Normally when a martial artist broke through
to the Pulse Condensation period from the peak Bone Forging stage, their
strength wouldn’t increase too much.
However, Lin Ming wasn’t a normal martial artist. The method in which
he reached Pulse Condensation was through a perfect breakthrough, and his
foundation was extremely solid. Not only that, but the cultivation method
he practiced was the ‘Chaotic Virtues Combat Meridians’. After
breaking through each stage, his true essence would grow incomparably
thicker and purer than a martial artist at the same stage.
Also, Lin Ming’s azure true essence, Flow like Silk, and Purple Flood
Dragon Divine Thunder were absurdly abnormal and overpowered abilities.
If his true essence was twice as strong, then his attack power would be
three times, four times, or even five times greater!
So from the peak Bone Forging stage to the Pulse Condensation period, Lin
Ming had experienced a great leap in strength!
“Ouyang Ming was defeated! Now there are only three people left that
still have a flawless winning streak!”
“Besides Mugu Buyu and Jiang Baoyun, Lin Ming has already fought with
most of the other masters, except for Huan Xiaodie and Mugu Jirong.
However, those two are not his match. Even if Lin Ming lost to Mugu Buyu
and Jiang Baoyun, he would still reach the top three!”
The audience discussed the situation of the tournament and the possible
outcomes. This dark horse known as Lin Ming was simply too dark. A
disciple of the 36 countries had entered the Total Faction Martial
Meeting for the first time and had already reached the top three
rankings. Moreover, he had just reached 16 years of age. This was simply
too shocking for anyone to comprehend.
After Lin Ming walked offstage, he saw Mugu Buyu staring at him. Mugu
Buyu’s skinny mummy face still had his trademark tricky smile. But as
he looked at Lin Ming’s eyes, his eyes no longer held the previous
teasing banter and contempt. Instead, there was a solemn, dignified
Clearly, Mugu Buyu finally felt threatened by Lin Ming.
