Awakening - Chapter 185
Chapter 228: Evil Blade“Clang” Lei Yin’s sword slash was blocked before it reached the man’s neck. In fact this was the first time; the man defended against Lei Yin’s sword with his blade. Unprecedented!. At this time, Lei Yin looked at the man astounded by this terrifying change, but this served to arouse his fighting spirit. The man, after the clash was forced to only retreat a stepbackwards, after which he quickly stabilized himself, immediately brandishing his blade towards Lei Yin’s chest at a terrifying speed – Lei Yin responded quickly-Along with the movement of his hand, his sword swift, vanished from sight moving towards the man’s neck causing the man to hastily take back his blade, and quickly use it as his epicentre to block and evade this dangerous attack.At this point, Lei Yin was not going to give the man any chance to get back his composure and sent a kick straight to his abdomen, the man alarmed, gave up any thoughts on counter attacking and quickly avoided a potentially heavy injury by taking a step back in retreat.Lei Yin was surprised by this outcome and deeply observed the man, smiling strangely, he lightly uttered “interesting”, finished saying, with a heavy step on the ground, he exploded forward with astonishing speed towards the man, the man not shrinking back, rushed forward too, and meeting Lei Yin head on.
The next sets of attacks from the two men were more terrifying and life threatening. This was life and death. In the next few seconds, they had clashed dozens of times at a lightning speed moving back and forth, both of them attacking fiercely hoping to draw out their opponents weak points and deal a turning point damage! Any slight loss of concentration at this moment would be fatal.It is said by martial arts grandmasters, in a fighting contest or life and death fight, just dealing one move after another or even being able deal a thousand moves was not enough to win the fight. One must, even in a fight continue to learn and adapt to the rhythm of the battle, often times, in a life and death battle between experts, several hundred moves is enough to determine who lives or dies. This is because, in a fight, it’s not only your martial arts capability that determines the outcome, but your ability to adapt and predict the next move of your opponent and your ability to response fast accordingly. These little things would determine the outcome of a battle between experts. If one expert momentarily lost focus and made a slight error causing him to be unguarded for a moment, the other expert would take advantage of this error and deal a terrifying blow to decide victory or even death. It’s this simple.This battle was more terrifying in comparison to the battle Lei Yin fought with that experimental body, Brin’s brother .He had a formidable physique with equally formidable physical strength but he severely lacked fighting skills. So Lei Yin who fought with him unarmed did not experience any danger much less the threat of death. This time however, the man he was battling with at this moment was completely different- very dangerous.Moreover he was as skilled with his blade as Lei Yin was in the art of the swordsmanship, a top blade master. Even in his many reincarnations, experts at this level, which Lei Yin met, were extremely few. He didn’t dare believe he would meet an expert of this level, in this lifetime!Basking in the feeling of this intense battle, his nerves excited, his mind and body constantly buzzing with excitement. Lei Yin thought; “it has been a long time since I have experienced this exciting feeling of fighting without restraint attacking and defending every fatal sword slash”. Excited, Lei Yin delved deeper and deeper into the rhythm of the battle, forgetting everything else, attacking, predicting and dealing with the man’s every move and this was the same situation for the man as well!.In this extremely serene forest, the intense battle raged on, with “clang” sounds made from clashing of a sword and a blade, which often disrupted the quiet of this place. Two shadows moved back and forth at amazing speeds, clashing in the air, then the ground, then the top of a tree, their sword and blade vanishing and reappearing at speeds which seemed like they were flickering between the realms of illusion and reality. They kept attacking their vital points in other to deal severe damage; this was a direct but extremely fatal strategy. At this point, Lei Yin momentum changed, moving exquisitely, his sword blade dancing strangely from side to side leaving what seemed like after images in its wake which were almost visible to the naked eye causing Lei yin’s image to enshrouded by his sword shades. This made one person visible and the other invisible. Ley yin seemed like he was surfing beautifully against turbulent wave currents on the ocean.This battle continued for what seemed like forever, after which Ley Yin sword blade stopped at the man’s throat. Any slight movement would have ensured the man’s death, this ended the battle instantly.Ley Yin deeply looked at the man. After a period of silence, Ley Yin suddenly withdrew his blade from the man’s throat and withdrew.The man didn’t dare continue to attack but breathed out a breath of relief. Panting and trying to stabilize his excited nerves after he just experienced an exciting battle and a near death catastrophe was also calmly watching Lei Yin who was also panting and trying to stabilize his nerves as well.In this quiet wood, only the sounds of light and heavy breathing of the two people were heard.Although this battle ended with less than a 100 moves fought, it was howevera life and death battle. It was not at all comparable to a sparring session. The physical and mental strength consumption was enormous. Although both men were exhausted, Ley Yin was in much better shape than the man as a result of constant physical exercises and frequently honing his martial skills. This gave Ley Yin the upper hand.“Since you were already injured, let’s call it a draw” Ley Yin said this suddenly. He said this in Chinese.The man replying in Chinese coldly countered “this is a loss. A loss is a loss or do you think I cannot take a loss. I am not narrow minded?”“Kureji Hai, after all this time, you have not changed this your smelly temper right?” Ley Yin faintly smiling said to the man.“How did you come to look like that?” Kureji Hai asked. He couldn’t just merge this youthful appearance of Ley Yin with the appearance he was originally familiar in ages past. After all he could not be mistaken after experiencing this person’s art of the sword which was very similar to the person in his memory. He however couldn’t bear to ask in confusion and for clarification.“Ha” Lei Yin laughed, shrugging his shoulders, disinclined to explain said “are you not the same? Why don’t you look at yourself in a mirror and you will see how you look presently. I am interested in knowing how you happen to be in Japan and how you also possessed this man’s body?”
