James had heard of this man from Sky. The Spirit Master was a man who walked the earth for two hundred years. All this while, he had been living a life of seclusion and avoiding contact with the outside world, even during the battle against the Spirit Turtle at the Mount Thunder Sect. Now, he had shown himself.
Sky told him that the Spirit Master was at least at the Fifth Stair. Not only that, but he was extremely well-trained in martial arts. After all, someone who spent two centuries studying a single martial art would be a terrifying being. Unless, of course, he was a mediocre man. However, if he were a mediocre man, he would not have gained such strength.
James stared at the Spirit Master. He was so ordinary-looking that he could blend into the crowd in any setting
The Spirit Master walked toward James with a sword on his back.
As he approached James, the sword on his back was suddenly unsheathed, and he caught it flawlessly. The sword was rather ordinary-looking as well.
However, since he dared challenge James, there was no way he was an average man.
“Come at me…” His expression was composed as he spoke.
Though James could not discern his state of mind, he did not dare lower his guard as he knew that the Spirit Master was no ordinary man. He slowly pulled out the Primordial Dragon Blade, which radiated at blinding golden light.
“Please…” He beckoned.
The moment the word left his mouth, the Spirit Master lunged toward him with the sword in hand. His sword technique was bizarre. The sword spun incessantly, radiating waves of sword light that charged toward James.
James smiled faintly. Then, in the blink of an eye, he appeared behind the Spirit Master.
Just as he was about to deal him a blow, the Spirit Master suddenly turned around and spun his sword.
The Sword Energy swirled the surrounding dust and debris that were generated from the castle’s destruction.
At that moment, James could not see what was before him except for waves of Sword Energy that charged toward him.
Holding the Primordial Dragon Blade in his hand, he deflected the incoming Sword Energy.
As the Sword Energy clashed, an explosion happened.
The deafening explosion caused even the earth to shake.
A piercing sword emerged from the dust and struck James.
James swiftly turned and deflected the attack. His sword clashed with the Spirit Master.
As the Spirit Master exerted great force, James could feel he was about to be overwhelmed.
His blood ran cold.
As he roughly knew the Spirit Master’s strength, he chose not to go all-out. However, he did not expect the Spirit Master to be far greater in strength than he initially thought. With his current strength, he should be at least at the Sixth Stair.
Just as James was momentarily stunned, the Spirit Master’s sword slid across the Primordial Dragon Blade and went straight for his wrist.
James hurriedly staggered backward to parry his attack
The Spirit Master’s sword technique was bizarre. It seemed to be able to predict the movement of James’ sword, changing and modifying its moves along the way.
His sword avoided the Primordial Dragon Blade and went for the lower half of James’ body.
Seeing this, James slightly inclined the sword and blocked the attack.
The swords clashed, and sparks flew.
A crisp sound could be heard.
The Spirit Master staggered backward, and James seized the window of opportunity and began his offense.
