The crack formed on the Blade of Justice’s outer layer.
A dazzling Sword Light shone from within the crack. It was a blinding, golden Sword Light.
The scene before them seemed like a small, golden sun was floating in midair, right before them.
James’ eyes lit up at this sight. He had been carrying the Blade of Justice around all this time but never suspected there was a hidden secret to it.
With a wave of his hand, the Blade of Justice floating in the air returned to him. He held the sword and looked closely at it.
James finally noticed the external cast on the Blade of Justice. There were a few cracks on the cast.
He increased the strength he was using to hold it and forcibly shattered its outer covering.
The cracks gradually grew in size. Finally, the cast crumbled off and revealed the Blade of Justice’s true appearance.
Mysterious patterns seemed to be carved on the sword’s blade.
Upon careful inspection, the pattern could be identified as a lifelike dragon.
Looking at the long golden sword in his hand, James’ heart pounded with excitement.
Delainey approached him and said excitedly, “Congratulations, Mr. Caden! You’ve managed to uncover the secret hidden within the Blade of Justice. This must be its true appearance!”
James could now sense that the Blade of Justice was different from other swords.
Previously, the Blade of Justice felt like a common and lackluster piece of iron, but now he could sense a palpable power from it. The power stirred the True Energy within his body.
Now using the true Blade of Justice, the Thirteen Heavenly Sword technique’s strength would undoubtedly have increased considerably.
“Thanks a lot…” James looked at Delainey and thanked her sincerely.
If not for her guidance and knowledge, he would never have known that the Blade of Justice was covered by an outer cast, nor would he know how to unleash its true potential.
“You should continue your practice.”
Delainey tried to be unobtrusive to James and slightly backed away.
James was immediately motivated to test out his new weapon and raised the newly unleashed Blade of Justice.
He stood on Mt. Thunder Pass’s peak and executed the Thirteen Heavenly Sword.
Thirteen Sword Energies burst out simultaneously and crisscrossed in mid-air, emanating a fearsome power. Meanwhile, Delainey watched from a distance. Her pretty face was overcome with astonishment
I never expected Mr. Caden to have mastered the Thirteen Heavenly Sword at such a young age.
With his potential, he’ll definitely be able to summon the rumored fourteenth sword that’s capable of shaking both the heaven and earth.
After James practiced the technique once, he called it a day.
His body slowly floated down from the sky and landed firmly on the ground.
Delainey walked over and said in a perplexed manner, “Mr. Caden, don’t you find something strange about the Thirteen Heavenly Sword technique you’ve been practicing?”
“Hmm? What do you mean?” James was caught off-guard by her question.
He had learned the technique from Bennett. Even after practicing it for over a month, he barely reached the Second Sword Realm of the Thirteen Heavenly Swords. As for the rest, he felt inspired and finally comprehended the art behind the Thirteen Heavenly Swords.
Delainey stretched out her slender fingers, stroked her chin, and furrowed her brows pensively.
After a while, she spoke slowly, “I’ve never seen the real Thirteen Heavenly Sword before, but I’ve read in our ancient records that the ancestor of the Cadens was the leader of the four officials that served the Prince of Orchid Mountain. He was a powerful martial artist, but there’s definitely more to the Thirteen Heavenly Sword than simply summoning Thirteen Sword Energies.”
She turned at James and said, “Calling forth the Thirteen Sword Energies is simple if you have some understanding of swordsmanship and possess potent True Energy. You can transform your True Energy into Thirteen Sword Energies, but if that was all there was to the technique, the Thirteen Heavenly Sword would not be worthy of being regarded as the most powerful sword technique in the world.”
Delainey’s words gave James a lot of things to consider. Her reasoning was sound and he could not find anything to counter her argument.
Delainey asked again, “Mr. Caden, you can only execute the Sword Energies but can’t control them freely, right?
“Yeah…” James nodded.
