Martial World - chapter-297
All the other sects’ elders looked at Mugu Buyu, puzzled. Just where
did this little kid come from?
According to the information they received, during the Seven Profound
Valleys’ Total Faction Martial Meeting, Lin Ming had been ranked first,
and Jiang Baoyun was most likely second. As for this fellow who looked
like a dried up mummy, he was third.
The Seven Profound Valleys’ third ranked disciple had come out to
challenge White Peak Sect’s chief disciple, Zhang Shaoshan?
White Peak Sect’s elder grunted. Although his White Peak Sect was
ranked tenth out of the 18 third-grade sects, they still weren’t much
different from the Seven Profound Valleys – their strength was about
the same. But now, the Seven Profound Valleys’ third ranked disciple
had actually come out to challenge their chief disciple, this was just
looking down on them too much.
It had to be known that the Seven Profound Valleys’ Jiang Baoyun had
come to White Peak Sect last year to challenge them, but had been
defeated by Zhang Shaoshan!
Not just that, but the talent list that Divine Phoenix Island drew up had
caused the White Peak Sect elder to fume with self-righteous anger. There
were 27 earth-step talents, and 17 of those spots had been taken by the
six top third-grade sects, which included Peacock Mountain. He couldn’t
say anything about that, but of those 10 measly leftover sports, two of
them had been dominated by the Seven Profound Valleys, leaving only eight
spots left over for 12 sects to share. White Peak Sect actually hadn’t
even been given a spot! Zhang Shaoshan had only been listed as a possible
Divine Phoenix Island had only come to watch this Seven Profound
Valleys’ Total Faction Martial Meeting, thus they made this sort of
arbitrary judgment; how could the White Peak Sect elder be satisfied with
The source of this content is _l_ightnovelworld._com‘Shaoshan has made
a great deal of progress this year, and he also has two ultimate
finishing moves. These are things that Divine Phoenix Island and the
Seven Profound Valleys have no idea of. Now, I will let you have a look
at just how strong my White Peak Sect’s chief disciple is!’
As the White Peak Sect elder thought this, he maintained his calm and
indifferent composure. He unhurriedly picked up a bowl of wine, watching
the match on the martial stage from the corners of his eyes. He had a
very confident appearance, as if he didn’t worry about Zhang
On the martial stage, Mugu Buyu had summoned his Scarlet Gold Tortoise
puppet and the Great Alligator puppet. As for the spider puppet, that was
missing – it probably hadn’t been repaired yet.
Zhang Shao crossed his arms across his chest, coldly looking at Mugu
Buyu. As a top master, he naturally had to have the style and verve of an
apex master. Letting his opponent make adequate preparations was one of
the most essential aspects of showing off one’s skill as an apex master.
“Are you finally ready? Make your move. I’ll let you have three
moves. With three moves, I shall see whether or not you can force my
sword!” Zhang Shaoshan mockingly said.
“Jejejeje, little baby boy, I think you are already stupid to the point
of being more idiotic than my puppets.” Mugu Buyu gave a shrieking cry,
and his skeleton creaked as two large flesh ridges appeared behind him,
Zhang Shaoshan’s complexion changed, just what was this thing?
With two light sounds, those fleshy lumps on Mugu Buyu’s back turned
into a pair of arms. As Zhang Shaoshan saw this, his eyes went perfectly
round. This mummy fellow actually had arms on his back? Was this
fellow… a human?
“You can die now!”
The source of this content is _l_ightnovelworld._comMugu Buyu weirdly
cried out, shrinking into the Scarlet Gold Tortoise. Then, four weapons
popped out, extending from the holes in the Scarlet Gold Tortoise. At the
same time, the Evil Fire God flourished a sword of burning fire, chopping
down at Zhang Shaoshan!
Flames billowed, the overwhelming heat wave covered the sky and turned
the tiles into lava. Zhang Shaoshan’s expression completely changed;
this was a terrifying level of heat!
A sword split apart the arena floor. Zhang Shaoshan awkwardly dodged the
blade, however, the raging fire that was supported by nine Hollow Flame
Essences was too fierce. The waves of fire directly melted away Zhang
Shaoshan’s true essence protection, lighting his clothes on fire and
burning off his eyebrows.
“How is this possible!?”
The treasure sword left its sheath, all of Zhang Shaoshan’s previously
boastful demeanor was gone. With sword in hand, he hadn’t even had time
to put out the fire when Mugu Buyu had already rushed ahead!
“You really think I can’t do anything!?” Zhang Shaoshan’s lips
panned up in a cruel smile. As a swordsman, his greatest advantage was
naturally his attack power.
Currently, his heart was raging with anger. Because he was too careless a
moment ago, Mugu Buyu’s move had actually caused his to panic,
embarrassing him. His clothes had been burned by a nobody, this was
simply an unforgivable insult!
“White Peak 13 Swords!”
The source of this content is _l_ightnovelworld._comZhang Shaoshan gave a
loud cry, directly using his greatest master move, wanting to defeat Mugu
Buyu in one stroke and recover the face he lost. However, he didn’t
expect that facing his fierce attack, Mugu Buyu would not only not dodge,
but rush straight towards his sword!
With a deafening explosion, Zhang Shaoshan’s sword had pierced through
Mugu Buyu’s pure golden shell. At that same time, Mugu Buyu’s four
weapons cut towards Zhang Shaoshan!
“You want to perish together? You think you can?”
As a swordsman, Zhang Shaoshan was naturally more agile than Mugu Buyu.
After he pulled back his sword, he used the force of the recoil to
rapidly retreat, escaping from Mugu Buyu’s attack.
A single blade had solved his opponent while he perfectly dodged the
opponent’s final dying counter attack. With this, Zhang Shaoshan’s
face was glowing with content; he had finally recovered his face.
However, in a split-second, his happy face froze.
He suddenly felt as if his body was being pulled down by an invisible
force, as if his body was made from lead! This was the special ability of
the Great Alligator Puppet – Devouring!
“What is this?”
Zhang Shaoshan was greatly surprised. He didn’t have time to think as
he heard the sounds of howling flames coming from his side. He turned his
head to look, the Evil Fire God was already cutting down on him!
The source of this content is _l_ightnovelworld._comAs his body felt like
it was stuck in quicksand, Zhang Shaoshan had no chance of evading. He
cut out with his sword, meeting this strike head-on!
Flame exploded, and his sword move was broken, true essence waves rushing
out. Zhang Shaoshan was a swordsman, so his defense was never very good.
Before, the Evil Fire God’s strike had almost shattered the martial
stage’s protective array formation, so how could he defend against it?
As the power of fire entered his body, Zhang Shaoshan was just like a
broken kite as he flew backwards, his organs injured and his blood
churning in reverse. He wanted to spit out blood, but he forcefully
swallowed it back down, causing his injuries to worsen.
In dealing with some nobody, Zhang Shaoshan would rather aggravate his
injuries than lose face by vomiting blood.
“I was too careless. This fellow was really hard to deal with. However,
he has already been struck by my White Peak 13 Swords – he’s done
White Peak 13 Swords was Zhang Shaoshan’s strongest sword skill, he had
never missed. Though he had been a bit embarrassed, for better or for
worse, he had used a sword to defeat his enemy, so in the end he hadn’t
lost too much face.
But, just as Zhang Shaoshan thought he had already won, he suddenly heard
the sound of wind whistling beneath him. He looked down and saw four
hands carrying four different weapons, and a giant golden turtle coming
straight towards him. That shining golden shell didn’t even have a
“How… how is this possible!?”

eyes widened like eggs. In the air, there was no leverage for him to
move, and he had been seriously wounded. His true essence was chaotic,
and he couldn’t use another powerful sword skill again. Like this, he
was just a target to be aimed at.
In the next moment, there was a muffled ‘peng’ sound, as Mug Buyu
raised his sickle and smashed down on Zhang Shaoshan in midair, just like
Zhang Shaoshan smashed against the floor just like a broken sack of rice,
half of his body stuck in the tiles. The other sects’ core disciples
and elders were dumbfounded by this. How did this happen?
Although no one believed that Zhang Shaoshan was some once-in-a-lifetime
talent, he was still the chief disciple of White Peak Sect. Yet he had
been defeated by a nobody, and in such a miserable manner.
From start to end, Mugu Buyu had only used five moves. The Evil Fire God
puppet’s attack power was too abnormally strong. Zhang Shaoshan could
not dodge it, and a single blow sent his sword flying away. As for that
golden shell around Mugu Buyu, that was even stranger. It had actually
been able to withstand the White Peak 13 Swords without a single scratch!
This was just too terrifying!
What the other sects’ elders didn’t know was that Mugu Buyu’s
Scarlet Gold Tortoise had managed to continuously withstand two strikes
from Lin Ming’s Purple Flood Dragon Divine Thunder, one of which was
even mixed with the Evil Fire God’s flame, creating a massive
thunderflame explosion. Even then, it had only been slightly cracked.
In terms of defensive power, Mugu Buyu was the number one ranked among
the entire younger generation of the Seven Profound Valleys, Lin Ming
could not hold a candle to him. A True Essence Force Field was a type of
power of Law that was even above the Concept of Wind, and was one of the
two ultimate legacy secret techniques of the Puppet Faction. Its
reputation was well-earned.
Seeing Mugu Buyu’s full combat potential, Jiang Baoyun let out a breath
of cold air. ‘His main body has near-absolute defense, and the Evil
Fire God has irresistible attack power. Also, that alligator puppet has a
devouring ability that can contain movements, causing any attack to be
undodgeable. This multi-dimensional attack system from Mugu Buyu can
almost be called perfect. Unfortunately, his opponent was Lin Ming, and
all of this became useless. If I encountered him, I do not have absolute
assurance that I could defeat him.’
The source of this content is _l_ightnovelworld._comIn a sense, Mugu
Buyu’s ability to restrain an opponent’s speed was able to suppress
Jiang Baoyun. As for Lin Ming, his abnormal attack power was able to
overwhelm the defense of Mugu Buyu. Therefore Lin Ming had been able to
relatively easily defeat Mugu Buyu, and yet engage in an extended battle
with Jiang Baoyun.
The Seven Profound Valleys deacons hurried on stage to lift up the
unconscious Zhang Shaoshan and carry him down. The other sect elders and
geniuses hadn’t responded to the fight a moment ago. They were all
individuals with outstanding eyesight. Naturally, they were able to see
what the terrifying aspects of Mugu Buyu were.
Absolute defense, absolute attack! How could one break this near-perfect
Speed? Useless! Although Mugu Buyu was slow, he still had that strange
alligator puppet that was able to restrain an opponent’s speed. If an
opponent couldn’t display their speed, they could only wait to be
Attack? Useless! Even the White Peak Sect’s White Peak 13 Swords was
useless. It hadn’t even managed to leave a mark on that golden shell!
Defense? Useless! Although Zhang Shaoshan had poor defensive power, his
sword technique was absolutely amazing. He had used his sword skills to
defend against the Evil Fire God’s attack, but was still defeated
Who could be Mugu Buyu’s match in the same level? Such a powerful Mugu
Buyu was a nameless nobody? And he was only ranked third in the Seven
But, they all clearly remembered the words that Mugu Buyu had spoken to
Zhang Shaoshan before the match.
“Let me play with you. If you can defeat me, then you might be able to
take a few moves from this little boy’s hand.”
That so-called boy, was naturally Lin Ming!

“Might be able…”
“To take a few moves…”
What Mugu Buyu’s words implied was that someone stronger than him would
only be able to take a few moves from Lin Ming!
And yet, that Zhang Shaoshan was defeated by Mugu Buyu in five moves. In
comparison to Lin Ming, that was simply the difference between cloud and
