“What’s going on? Why do I feel like we are speeding up?” The officer outside frowned because he saw his men streaming inside much faster.
Another way of putting it was this-- people were dying faster and in larger numbers!
“Should we stop? How many more of us will die? I don’t know if thirty thousand of us can live to see tomorrow.” Some people started to doubt that they would survive. If other people did not know what the context was, they would think they had made a mistake.
“Don’t worry! Even if thirty thousand isn’t enough, it doesn’t matter because the leader has sent more people here. He has ordered to kill the Sorceress and her brother! Reinforcements should arrive tomorrow at sunrise!” The officer here clenched his teeth.
“Who’s coming? How many?”
“I heard it’s master with his fifty thousand people. Plus tens of experts.”
“Master? It looks like this will only continue. We can only proceed…”
Some people had a sense of dread. Eighty thousand people were sent just to kill two people. It was unbelievable.
However, they did not think it was unnecessary because so many people had entered only for them to die.
Very soon, it was late at night. Yet, there was still light in the hotel because the battle still continued.
Ye Lang and Li Yue had exchanged roles many times, taking turns to rest and fight. Although it was tough, at least they had enough physical energy for it. Their capabilities improved throughout the process.
Not just Li Yue, in the end, Ye Lang decided to use his weapons to fight. His swords, knives and all sorts of weapons were pulled out for battle.
He had realised that it was a good place to improve and cultivate his martial arts since he hadn’t really fought much.
Li Yue was stunned to see him fight physically. Other people would be stunned too because they rarely saw him fight with actual martial arts techniques.
When Li Yue watched him fight, she had a deeper level of understanding of martial arts. She started to immerse herself even deeper into the world of martial arts and from there, it was as if she had forgotten her ‘self’.
This state of consciousness meant she had fully absorbed the arts. Perhaps after today, she would begin to enter the Heavenly stage.
Ye Lang noticed Li Yue’s meditative state too so he did not interrupt her thoughts for her to replace him. He kept fighting until he sensed that she was fully back to reality.
Li Yue was still figuring something out as she watched Ye Lang. She felt like she was understanding something but she couldn’t quite place her finger on it. Once she knew what it was, it would mean that she had succeeded.
Li Yue’s meditative state was destined for failure but due to Ye Lang’s special fighting forms, she was repeatedly pulled back into the state of thought again. Ye Lang kept switching weapons too and that caught her attention.
Ye Lang’s change of weapons would provoke his opponents too. The Tanlang members were all angry because when they got used to his weapon and had a plan, Ye Lang would suddenly change his weapon and all their plans would fail and end in severe injury and death.
At the same time, they were in awe of how he could switch weapons like that.
Yep, Ye Lang could change the weapon in his hand in the blink of an eye, changing them into whatever he wanted-- knives, swords, spears, sticks…
And it kept switching!
This was alchemy. He had long mastered the art of changing the shape of matter, he just rarely used close-range weapons so no one noticed.
Li Yue now realised that Ye Lang did not specialise in one type of weapon. He had all the weapons at his disposal and was adept at all of them too.
Was this the advantage of an alchemist?
If an alchemist fought a master like that, the sudden change in weapon could cause the opponent to be unable to react in time. It would be like a surprise attack.
No one had known his fighting style until today. This was because everyone who experienced this was dead, plus Li Yue never told anyone. She felt like it was his secret and she did not want people to know it- especially not from her.
Time passed slowly. Ye Lang realised that his strength was depleting. He could only seal the entrance if this continued. With his abilities, he could easily do that. He just left it open to lure more people in.
It was about time too. They had killed about ten thousand people today.
At this point, a roar that sounded like a spring bursting out of the mountains echoed across the lands. Ye Lang looked at Li Yue with a grin. He knew Li Yue had understood.
Although he wasn’t sure if this meant she had broken through into the Tian level, at least it showed that her capabilities had greatly improved!
In reality, she was not a Tian level fighter yet, but she was close. It was a matter of time. After the bout of understanding, her skills were even more perfect than before, every stroke more powerful.
This roar shocked all the masters outside. Their faces grew more solemn because they knew it meant a master had achieved a breakthrough. And since the roar was a long one, it meant this person was at least a Di level.
Right now, there was only one master inside, it was the Sorceress…
“Alright, that’s enough of screaming. Come help me! It’ll deepen your understanding.” She heard Ye Lang’s voice as if he was exasperated.
“...” The roaring stopped and she looked at Ye Lang helplessly. She shook her head and leapt downstairs to help.
Once she started fighting, he prepared to head upstairs to rest. He collected all the war spoils along the way too.
When the rays from the alchemy formation disappeared, all the metal was gone.
Of course, the metal on Li Yue was not gone yet. Ye Lang could control his powers.
“...” Li Yue looked at him, puzzled. Why was he collecting so much metal? She initially thought he was collecting weapons but it wasn’t the main reason.
Whatever, he had always been a weird guy.
