Chapter 409 – Ten Thousand Everlasting Elephants
When Nangong Wentian made his appearance, a young white-clothed man could be seen following. However, since everyone was looking at Nangong Wentian now, no one really paid any attention to this white-clothed youngster.
Nangong Wentian had arrived at the last moment in a mighty manner. His arrival attracted the attention of everyone present. Right now, Nangong Wentian’s energy was extremely strong, and cracking like sounds could be heard from his body. He was incredibly powerful now, as he had gone through a thorough transformation from his very roots. His aura was in no way inferior to Nangong Wenyen’s.
“Wentian has broken through to the Combat Soul realm? Good, perfect!”
Nangong Yunfan was surprised. His entire body was even trembling because of the immense excitement he felt.
“Haha, good job Wentian! We can win this duel!”
Tu Yi was laughed out loudly. He was incredibly happy that Nangong Wentian had finally broken through to the Combat Soul realm at this last moment. This truly allowed the people of the Nangong family to see a ray of hope regarding today’s duel.
“So young master was in the middle of breaking through to the Combat Soul realm just now, that’s why he didn’t show up! I thought he was afraid of this duel!”
“d.a.m.n you! Young master isn’t afraid of anything, how could he be a coward? Since he has now broken through to the Combat Soul realm, I’m sure he’ll beat Nangong Wenyen’s head into that of a pig!”
“It’s hard to tell. Both of them have similar talent, and Nangong Wenyen broke through to the Combat Soul realm some time ago, whereas young master just had his breakthrough. Young master isn’t in an advantageous position.”
“We still have hope. The situation is after all much better than when he was only a Divine Core warrior. Let’s just sit back and watch how things go, the duel between two elite geniuses of the younger generation will definitely be exciting!”
All the people of the Nangong family were talking amongst themselves, talking about who was the stronger one. In any case, after Nangong Wentian broke through to the Combat Soul realm, this duel was finally fair. If he came here as a Divine Core warrior, he would definitely have died today.
“That little b.a.s.t.a.r.d really broke through to the Combat Soul realm.”
Nangong Yunzheng’s face turned pale. He thought Nangong Wentian would appear on the stage a Divine Core warrior, he never expected him to break through to the Combat Soul realm in such a short amount of time. And, it seemed he had now become strong enough to fight an equal match with his son.
“Don’t worry, this guy obviously just broke through to the Combat Soul realm. Compared to young master Wenyen, he is still far behind. I don’t think he’ll be a match for young master Wenyen.”
One of the guest warriors standing next to Nangong Yunzheng said.
“Alright, let the duel begin!”
Nangong Yunfan shouted out, signaling the beginning of today’s first duel; the first of three. This first duel, the duel between the two geniuses of the younger generation was the key to both parties’ victory.
On top of the fighting stage, Nangong Wentian and Nangong Wenyen were standing opposite to each other, glaring fiercely at each other.
“Wentian, if I was you, I’d just admit defeat right away and let your father give up the family chief position. With that, you can still keep your life. Let me tell you, today’s duel is a life and death match, and I won’t be showing you any mercy when I fight! Even now that you’ve broken through to the Combat Soul realm, you’re still not my match!”
Nangong Wenyen said. He was really confident in his own strength.
“I really don’t know where your confidence comes from. Nangong Wenyen, you and I have been fighting each other since we were small. Today, let’s put an end to this!”
Nangong Wentian portrayed great confidence. He too did not take Nangong Wenyen seriously.
“Hmph! Wentian, you’re just wasting your time! You’ve never been a match for me in any aspects ever since we were young, and your talent is inferior to mine. So, how are you going to fight me? Your young master position should be mine, it was just grandfather being partial and treating you better! Since you and your father refuse to realize this mistake, I’ll just kill you today and take what belongs to me!”
Nangong Wenyen coldly harrumphed. Powerful energy burst out from his body and swept across the entire fighting stage. The energy turned into a powerful wind and blew toward Nangong Wentian.
Nangong Wentian responded with a cold harrumph as well. He unleashed his energy as well, sending a tsunami-like wave of energy toward his opponent.
The two tsunami-like energies collided and produced a loud explosive sound, and an energy whirlpool was created right in the center of the collision. When the shockwaves from the collision swept across the crowds, it made all the weaker people breathe heavily. Luckily, a defense mechanism had been constructed on the fighting stage by some mighty warriors. If not, this first attack alone would simply have destroyed the entire fighting stage.
Underneath the fighting stage, everyone were watching the fight nervously. Jiang Chen squinted his eyes as he watched both fighters carefully. He was easily able to find out about the gap between these two men with his senses.
“Both men are of similar strength, and it isn’t easy for one to defeat the other. However, Brother Nan’s Ten Thousand Everlasting Elephants skill is far stronger than what it seems from the outside, giving him incredible combat strength. Therefore, Brother Nan has the higher chance of winning this duel. He will win for sure.”
Jiang Chen thought to himself. He believed that Nangong Wentian would win this first match. With that, the Nangong family would have their first victory, and as a long as they won the second duel, they could just skip the third match.
“Thousand Ripples Stone Toss!”
Nangong Wenyen suddenly cried out and flew into the sky; forcefully throwing a punch at Nangong Wentian. This punch carried a strong energy which formed into an energy whirlpool. Within a split second, a gigantic fist emerged from the center of this energy whirlpool, sending powerful energy ripples that looked like sprays of seawater splas.h.i.+ng around all over the place. It was both incredibly lethal and destructive.
The frightening attack quickly approached Nangong Wentian’s face.
“Barbarian Elephant Stomping the Heavens!”
Nangong Wentian shouted out loudly as well. Then, he jumped into the sky. After that, an illusionary image of a barbarian elephant appeared outside his body. It was a gigantic golden barbarian elephant, and it had completely overlapped and merged with Nangong Wentian; giving people an impression that Nangong Wentian was now the barbarian elephant.
The barbarian elephant unleashed by Nangong Wentian raised its huge feet and immediately stepped onto the illusionary gigantic fist. With a loud explosive sound, the fist was instantly shattered, and the energy ripples shooting out from the energy whirlpool disappeared as well. But now, the illusionary image of the barbarian elephant had started fading.
Tu Yi couldn’t help but shout. Nangong Wentian’s formidable behavior had exceeded his expectations; it looked like he had a really high chance of winning.
After the first attack failed, Nangong Wenyen immediately unleashed his second attack. He started drawing something in front of him with both hands, then he unleashed golden energies which turned into a 30 meter tall golden mountain. It was a mountain formed entirely from energy, and it carried the weight of a real mountain. This was an attack that relied on raw strength, and it wasn’t an attack that anybody could withstand.
The golden mountain produced a loud explosive sound as it was thrown by Nangong Wenyen toward Nangong Wentian.
“Ten Thousand Everlasting Elephants!”
Nangong Wentian showed no signs of being scared. Once again, he transformed into a barbarian elephants. An illusionary image of a barbarian elephant appeared outside of his body, and it was just as big as the golden mountain. The elephant then charged violently toward the golden mountain.
It wasn’t difficult to tell that Nangong Wentian had mastered the essence of the Ten Thousand Everlasting Elephants skill, as any attack he unleashed possessed formidable strength.
This was a collision of pure strength. Frightening energy ripples swept across the scene, causing even the air to tremble violently. Nangong Wentian and Nangong Wenyen slammed into each other with their attacks dozens of times, but neither was able to defeat the other.
“So strong! Both men are only Early Combat Soul warriors, especially Wentian who just broke through to the Combat Soul realm! And yet, he actually has the combat strength of a Mid Combat Soul warrior. Perhaps even I wouldn’t be able to defeat him now.”
A Mid Combat Soul Elder who stood next to Tu Yi couldn’t help but say. Although Nangong Wentian and Nangong Wenyen were only Early Combat Soul warriors, they both possessed the combat strength of someone at the Mid Combat Soul realm, more than enough for either of them to fight this Mid Combat Soul Elder.
They were geniuses with extraordinary talents and abilities.
“Enough playing around! Ancient Savaged Elephant!”
Nangong Wentian roared out, causing his energy to surge once again. This time, an Ancient Barbarian Elephant appeared on his back. With a pressure coming from the barbarian beast, he simply charged toward Nangong Wenyen and launched his attack.
Nangong Wenyen cried out in shock, a look of disbelief visible in both eyes. He never thought that Nangong Wentian still had such an amazing ability up his sleeves. It increased his combat strength once again and put a huge pressure on Nangong Wenyen.
Nangong Wenyen hurriedly countered with his last resort, unleas.h.i.+ng a huge amount of energy beams toward Nangong Wentian. However, when faced with this mighty Ancient Barbarian Elephant, these attacks were useless.
The energy beams were instantly destroyed by the Ancient Barbarian Elephant, and Nangong Wenyen was knocked dozens of meters away away, spitting out blood along his way.
The Ancient Barbarian Elephant roared out and went back into Nangong Wentian’s body. Although he had injured Nangong Wenyen and obtained unexpected results, unleas.h.i.+ng the image of the Ancient Barbaric Elephant consumed a huge amount of Nangong Wentian’s energy. He now had less energy than Nangong Wenyen, but his current condition was much better than the injured Nangong Wenyen.
Seeing this, Nangong Yunzheng cried out in shock and nearly jumped. All the men standing behind him had ugly expressions on their faces. No one had ever thought that this Nangong Wentian who had just broken through to the Combat Soul realm could really defeat Nangong Wenyen; this had completely disrupted their original plan.
Compared to Nangong Yunzheng, although Nangong Yunfan was shocked by what just happened as well, his shock was mixed in with pleasant surprise. His son was going to win the first duel, and as today’s matches would decide the future of the Nangong family, if Nangong Wentian could really defeat Nangong Wenyen, not only would that increase their chance of final victory, more importantly, Nangong Wentian had used his own strength to defend his position as the young master. He used his formidable strength to tell everyone that he; Nangong Wentian was more capable than anyone else to hold the position of young master.
“Wentian is really amazing! It looks like Nangong Wenyen is going to lose this match.”
A bright smile bloomed onto Tu Yi’s face.
