Revolt against the Heavens – Chapter 37: The first horn of the dragon

Chapter 37: The first horn of the dragon

Once Cao Yun took his spear in hand, he looked different, like an animal with its fangs and claws out. Zhi Yin followed suit and her friendliness disappeared at once. She was one with the steel of her sword, calm and ready.

Many people were excited by this fight, this was the last one and it opposed two legends. Cao Yun had been known through the news they got of the trials. He rapidly became a legend because he broke many records. In the Eight Directions Engulfing array formation, he took out all the eight beasts as they attacked together. In the Eighteen Weapons Mechanical Puppet trial, he chose a 1-star Human rank manual and got one of the highest score in history. It was not in the top ten, but if you only considered 1-star Human rank martial arts, he was in the top three. Finally, he broke the record in the Yin-Yang Torture Illusion array formation.

All the disciples had gone through these trials as well and knew how difficult each one was. So Cao Yun really impressed them. Of course, some disciples refused to believe without seeing and ridiculed the ones who already idolized him.

On the other hand, Zhi Yin was known as 'Fairy Zhi' by some. Last year, she was the only candidate to beat one of the first-years. Since then, she had quickly climbed up the power ranking of the sect. Her way of the sword was very famous and for many, flawless. When you added her elegant beauty to the mix, she was worshiped as a fairy by a few disciples. As a matter of fact, she found it pretty disturbing. But as long as they kept to themselves, she wouldn't say anything.

Instead of listening to all the chatter down below, Cao Yun focused all his intent on the fight. It was the first time he was going to be able to use 'Azure Dragon's Seven Piercing Stars' in an actual battle. He even had obtained some insights since the Eighteen Weapons Mechanical Puppet trial. From the get go, he circulated Yi and Zhi together.


Around the platform, the disciples were still chattering about the fight as the opponents were gauging each other.
