Chapter 864: A Sudden Turn of Events 2

The door slid open without a sound.
Garen entered slowly.
It was an average-sized cylindrical room with silvery grey walls that had
pipelines all over them.
In the center of the room was a huge silver ball of light formed by
countless silver strands.
If you looked carefully, you would see that there were numerous data
formula symbols circulating within the silver ball. There was also
something that looked like planetary rings moving in a reversed flow.
Garen approached it. Uncountable minuscule white laser light bulbs
suddenly lit up from the floor and shone at the ceiling above, forming
several thin white beams of light.
Garen stopped in his steps and observed the laser lights on the floor.
Hiss… The countless laser light beams instantaneously distorted and
formed a silver humanoid.
This humanoid had the same height and size as him but without any facial
features, skin, hair or clothes, as if it was a fluid robot made out of
“First stage of simulation begin…”
The female computer voice sounded from above.
Garen’s pupils constricted. In just a split second, the silver humanoid
was charging at him in long strides, causing the ground to quake.
He suddenly felt an immense pressure coming down on him, suppressing his
strength constitution to an ordinary person’s level and his Level Four
Crouched Eagle Talon Willpower to Level One standard.
The silver silhouette’s arm bent forward and ferociously elbowed
Silver fluid splattered as Garen blocked the elbow with a single arm. A
storm of attacks followed. The silver humanoid’s violent way of
attacking was, in fact, his most frequently used attacking style.
Elbow tip, palm knife, side-kick and forward stomp. Every move was a
basic combat technique, but when chained together, they gave off a wild
and ferocious feel.
Boom boom boom boom!!!
Numerous deep explosive sounds reverberated. Garen and the silver
humanoid exchanged more than ten strokes. Both parties took a few steps
back and charged towards the opponent without any hesitation, attacking
Fist against fist. Palm knife against palm knife.
Garen’s face did not change. He paid close attention to his own style
of attack and began to comprehend how this martial arts simulation could
help correct his flaws.
The way this simulation quantum computer worked was by creating another
self so that one could observe the exchanging of strokes and learn the
pros and cons of one’s martial arts.
Both of them exchanged a flurry of blows. Not a single one showed any
flaws. Garen’s martial arts had been thoroughly refined and tempered
endless times, and so there would not be any loopholes. Since the silver
humanoid was a computer simulation, the machinery would not show any weak
points as well. It was a draw state as two flawless powerhouses competed
with each other.
“Without flaws… this is my martial arts?” Garen gave another blow
to the silver humanoid, “Wrong. My martial arts can’t be this
shallow… I can create flaws despite there being none!”
He bellowed as both of his arms warped like spirals and transformed into
dozens of fictional and real palm shadows.
Twelve Flying Dragon Fist!
Because he did not want to expose the true depths of this combat
technique which he had taught Celine, he could only use this type of
The silver humanoid was not tricked by the fictional moves and instantly
produced many phantom fists. In the midst of all the phantom images, two
fists collided with precision.
The returned seismic energy caused both of them to be unsteady and forced
them to fall back a number of steps.
Garen’s Crouched Eagle Talon willpower exploded abruptly. The air
shook. With arms like a hawk, he suddenly charged forward and struck the
silver humanoid’s epigastrium with a punch.
The humanoid disintegrated and vanished completely.
“This is martial arts simulation? Battling with a flawless silver
humanoid to grasp where my weaknesses and strengths are? Still, it was
only a virtual figure simulation. Just a simple simulation as such is not
enough to build combat awareness. Countless plots and schemes are needed
Garen let out a breath and felt that he did not gain anything.
“Second stage of simulation, begin…” the female computer voice
The silver humanoid reappeared with a different look. He seemed stronger
A punch came swiftly accompanied by the sound of whistling wind.
Garen still had the body constitution of an ordinary person. Staring at
that fist, his heart skipped a beat. This humanoid had twice the
attributes of an ordinary person. He himself was suppressed and was
forced to fight with someone who was stronger than him!
His mind promptly spun and he made a similar punch. Halfway through, he
changed his fist to a palm move and cut at the edge of the silver
humanoid’s fist to make it go sideways.
Though in an instant, the counterpart abruptly released a mighty
Willpower which struck the edge of his palm where it met the fist.
That was Level Four Crouched Eagle Talon Willpower as well, and it rushed
out from their contact point.
Garen mustered up his Willpower to confront it. The power technique of
high-level martial artists, Quake, was fiercely launched.
After several buzzing sounds, the silver humanoid’s Willpower broke off
and it collapsed into a puddle of mud.
The power of Quake, a high-level technique that Secret Technique
practitioners must practice, was not something that could be easily
simulated. This was because it involved extremely complicated
coordination control of the spirit and the body.
The computer did not have a spirit. The simulation of Willpower was
programmed by someone beforehand because otherwise, it would not be able
to produce even the slightest bit of Willpower. That was why this kind of
simulated Quake was incapable and could only be defeated.
“Second stage finished. Would you like to enter the third stage?
Willpower is advanced by one level, and the physical body by two levels
with an additional Mad-blast attribute. Please take note, extreme
attribute, the third stage would be to simulate the practitioner’s
theoretical strongest form,” the female computer voice sounded again.
“Oh? My theoretical strongest form?” Garen was piqued. “Come on
He was getting a little excited.
The silver humanoid formed once again. This time, it had a unique,
half-transparent fluid body.
Whoosh… An explosive willpower energy field burst forth all of a
sudden. It was Level Five. The humanoid’s body randomly made some
hand-strokes and it tore the air instantly, creating ear-piercing sounds.
“Come on!” Garen smirked and initiated the attack, “Twelve Flying
Dozens of fist shadows were sent forth in a barrage of fists. But in a
flash, a violent and forceful energy field spread out. Without any
movement, the humanoid simply stood on the spot, lifted his hand and
flicked it at Garen.
Everything was wiped out.
Garen suddenly opened his eyes.
He was still standing in front of the huge silver light ball. There was
nothing else around. No silver humanoid, no countless laser lights. It
was as if he had just entered and fallen asleep standing.
“Silent hypnosis… or illusion system?” Garen closed his eyes. Scene
after scene of what just happened clearly appeared in his mind.
“What a fascinating technology…”
“Congratulations on passing the second level. You are rewarded with
Intelligent Robot Beginner Skill.”
A tiny half-transparent virtual chip appeared before him. Garen reached
out his hands and lightly touched it. The chip immediately disappeared to
becoming countless black lines which wormed into his terminal watch.
“Martial arts simulation correction ended. Evaluation result – Your
martial arts are perfect without any loopholes. Martial arts simulation
correction is not of much use to you,” the female computer voice
“Em… Besides me, how many have made it to the second level?”
“Up ’til now, one thousand two hundred and eighty-six people.”
“How ’bout the third level?”
“The third level is a theoretical battle model. Only one has made it
Exiting the simulation battle room, Garen did not receive any suggestions
from the computer. Usually, when people left the room, they would receive
suggestions from the quantum central computer regarding the strengths and
weaknesses of their martial arts. The conclusion for him, however, was
perfect and flawless.
Nonetheless, Garen was concerned about the third level because there
actually was someone who made it through. Despite the huge difference in
Willpower and the body, someone managed to break through this level. What
a rare sight it is.
This was a pure power suppressing technique. And so, it was no longer an
issue of technique. When a person could not even approach the opponent,
what kind of battle method could he employ to win?
The Willpower in the third level had reached the peak of Level Five. When
the energy field was dispersed, you could not even go near the body.
Garen could not think of a way to defeat that state of himself.
Walking out of the simulation room, he still tried to ask.
“Could you tell me the name of the person who passed the third level?”
“A hundred and twenty-four years ago, Gero Kavis.”
Garen repeated this name in his heart. This was the first time he
realized that there was someone who could beat him in martial arts combat.
Fighting against a stronger opponent was never his way of martial arts.
Yet, he admired the ones who could make it on this path.
After exiting Eagle’s Nest, a call came in.
“Nono, this is the latest news. The Great Light Mech of White Light
Organization had declared war against Blackboard Academy at East Fate
City. They have announced that they will take over East Fate City and
have dispatched dozens of Shining Mechs. All of them are Level Five
pilots! How imposing! What’s more, the capabilities shown by those
Great Light Mechs surpass half of the Level Five pilots! They have
defeated dozens of Black-Clothed Generals!”
“Doesn’t that mean this is an act of war?!” Garen was shocked.
“I’m afraid so. An instructor from the academy had set out with a
team. It’s an Inheriting instructor, Thomas Andrew of Genre Red Whale.
This is the first time an Inheriting pilot has been dispatched. I am
already prepared to go and watch the battle. Are you going or not!?”
Celine spoke quickly, “If you’re coming then come to Yellow Rose
area, elevator-platform number four.”
“I’m coming now!”
Garen replied promptly.
“Remember to bring your Mech! This time, it’s not going to be
As he finished the call, there was a trace of complicated emotions in his
“White Light dared to declare war against the whole of Blackboard
Region. With this kind of capability, there surely won’t be just one
Great Light Mech!”
A battle at Inheriting level… Regardless of everything, this was the
top level battle strength of this world. He had to go and see for
himself. This was a one in a million chance!
