“Let me show you how capable a Martial Arts God can be!”
Garthor propelled himself into the air, his legs blurring into afterimages as he did so. He unleashed a barrage of martial energy at Jagoan that hurtled toward him like cannonballs.
Jagoan took one look at the martial energy and waved his Dragonslayer Sword to unleash countless glowing sword shadows into the air.
Six shadow clones belonging to Jagoan appeared, each exuding a menacing aura. They brandished their swords simultaneously, deflecting the barrage of martial energy hurtling toward them.
Boom, boom, boom!
In that instant, the earth shook, and a defeating hum reverberated through the air. An avalanche of rocks tumbled down the mountain, crashing with force and creating a deep crater in the middle of the slope.
In the blink of an eye, Garthor had delivered countless kicks. Jagoan had also emitted numerous lights using the Nine Shadows. The lights and martial energy collided with force in midair, resulting in a deafening boom.
From afar, Archer watched the scene as a troubled expression crossed his face.
“I can’t believe this young man is able to fight against Garthor for so long despite being only a Martial Arts Saint,” he remarked.
He never would have imagined a Martial Arts Saint being able to go toe to toe with Garthor.
In truth, he was expecting to see Jagoan failing to defend himself against Garthor’s attack. However, their fight proved that Jagoan was just as skilled as he was.
Archer had previously fought against Garthor, but their fight was not as intense as the current fight between Jagoan and Garthor. In fact, Archer was quickly defeated by Garthor with just a few moves.
“This man’s sword technique looks weird. His shadow clones don’t look like illusions as they all have their own auras,” Skyler commented curiously as she watched Jagoan execute the Nine Shadows.
“Yes, he’s quite strange. I wonder how he became this powerful at a young age. The sword he’s wielding is also an extraordinary weapon as it has awakened its sword spirit. I had no idea such a person existed in the martial arts world!” Archer agreed.
Skyler asked, “Archer, is it possible he came from a secret realm?”
Archer shook his head. “I don’t think so. There are plenty of skilled cultivators in the secret realms, but they cannot fully display their abilities in the mundane world due to suppression. Otherwise, we won’t have the luxury of cultivating in a peaceful environment as many resources would have already been monopolized by the families in the secret realms. It would have been impossible for us to progress at such a rapid pace.”
“Master said we’re the same as the families in the secret realms. In the end, we all have to cultivate the same way,” Skyler replied, still looking baffled.
Archer let out a sigh and said, “Oh, that’s not an easy task to accomplish. If it were, our Master wouldn’t be moody all day.”
As they conversed, the thunderous boom ceased, and the settling dust gradually dissipated.
Garthor was staring at Jagoan icily.
Jagoan seemed a little disheveled now. Despite unleashing the Nine Shadows, he had been forced to endure a few kicks.
“I can’t believe you, a Martial Arts Saint, were able to block my attack. This is interesting. What sword technique did you use to create five clones of yourself? They aren’t just illusions as they are capable of attacking others. It looks like you have more secrets than I thought. I have to bring you back to Stormwind Sect.”
Garthor regarded Jagoan curiously, wanting to know everything about the latter.
Jagoan gave him a sharp look. He knew he would have to resort to some other means to win the fight.
