Episode 47

(Ice mistery skill)

Matthew and the scarred man were also part of the Blood Wolf Team along with the two men who perished. Knowing what Austin did to their mates made them furious.

The scarred man opened his palm and a cylinder appeared emitting rays of blue and green. He then turned his hand towards Austin and immediately, the lights turned into violent flashes of lighting shooting directly towards Austin.

Then, he waved his hand again and revealed a sharp, green claw which was made of steel and attached with an iron chain. It flew towards Austin as the man held its opposite end.

A bad feeling came over Austin. There was something eerie about the claw that he could not help but notice even before it reached him. It was tainted with poison!

Running Wind-commanding Skill, he dodged the incoming attacks with a series of graceful turns.




A series of sharp sounds echoed through the air. When it all subsided, the ground where Austin once stood was replaced with a landscape filled with a dozen mud holes.

As Austin moved, in his mind, he mustered energy to summon the Negative Shadow Blade. With it, he swung towards the incoming claw. The collision of the two forces produced an explosion of jet black.

The Negative Shadow Blade was a spiritual weapon. And Austin was at the ninth level of the Energy Gathering Realm. Therefore, with a powerful force, the blade cut the iron chain to pieces like a metal ball against brittle glass.

Without the chain, the steel claw was thrown into the garden of thorns that lay beside them.

The Negative Shadow Blade disappeared after it cut the chain. It left no trace. Then, it reappeared as suddenly as it vanished and was flying straight towards the scarred man's chest.

Petrified, the scarred man watched the incoming blade approach. Fear froze him completely. The Negative Shadow Blade pierced through his chest, flew out through his back, and once again, disappeared completely.

"You...! How did you do that?"

The scarred man stared at Austin with his pale, stunned eyes. Never could he have imagined that he would perish at Austin's hands.

He did not even have chance to display his skill! The fight was over even before it began.

Everything happened in the blink of an eye.

Matthew also stared at Austin in surprise. "How did that happen? How did he get so strong?" he murmured to himself.

He gravely underestimated him. He took two members of the Blood Wolf Team with him to kill Austin once and for all. Both of them willingly went, excited to get some action. It did not occur to any of them that this would be a difficult task. Now, Matthew realized the gravity of his mistake. In a split-second, all his men were killed!

He was all alone now!

For the first time, Matthew was afraid to fight Austin.

"I'm impressed, young boy. I have to admit that I underestimated you before.
However, I must warn you. Killing me will not be easy," Matthew said, managing to collect himself.

From what he saw in the fight that ensued, Matthew knew that Austin was not going to let him go alive. Murder was in his eyes.

He had heard of Austin's supreme power, but he dismissed them as inflated stories. It was not until he saw how easily and brutally the four members of the Blood Wolf Team were killed did he finally accept them as accurate accounts of reality.

Still, he had a feeling he could still beat Austin. Under his belt, he acquired a cultivation base under the ninth level of the Energy Gathering Realm. He also had a rare fourth-grade skill to Minor Achievement Stage. He also had the mind of a criminal and good instinct he honed in his years of robbery. Never in his life did he back down against a boy as young as Austin. He was barely twenty years old.

'This is a peculiar young boy. The things he did are those only someone on the ninth level of the Energy Gathering Realm could do.

If I recall correctly, his cultivation base was only at the seventh level of the Energy Gathering Realm when he arrived at the outer area of Grand Desolation Mountain. His progress is astounding. I suspect he ate a very potent substance that he found on this mountain. That must be what enabled him to break through two levels and enter into the ninth level right away, acquiring immense physical strength as well.

Nevertheless, breakthroughs which are acquired through foreign substances are normally unstable. I have been at the ninth level of the Energy Gathering Realm for more than five years now. Surely, I have more vital energy than he has, ' Matthew thought. He mulled over his ideas long and hard until he arrived at an answer that made sense to him.

'Why do I need to be afraid of this young man?' he realized.

With these thoughts, Matthew's confidence grew, and his initial hesitation disappeared completely. His fear of Austin, now, seemed stupid and illogical.
"You are going to die today, young man," He warned.

If Matthew only knew how accurately he guessed the situation, and that the substance that Austin managed to acquire was none other than the Celestial Energy Ginseng--the same thing that warriors sought for in the Grand Desolation Mountain--would it change how he was about to deal with the situation?

Matthew started to approach Austin. He walked towards him with a pace that gradually grew along with his cold intent.

His anger solidified as he drew closer raging through the snow that fell from the skies. He was going to kill him. That was certain. He already imagined it happening right before his eyes: Austin's blood staining the snow that surrounded them.

"Crack! Crack!"

As he passed, the branches beside him and the grass beneath him started to harden. In a matter of seconds, ice enveloped them completely. The snow thickened and the breeze became even colder. The green, vibrant forest became a desolate fortress of ice.

Seeing how effective his fourth-grade martial arts skill was boosted Matthew's confident. He felt even more certain that he had the upper hand. He looked at Austin with hunger in his eyes. His feet landed on the snow with an impact that echoed. The fight was about to begin.

"Little bastard, you are too young to comprehend the realities of this world. How dare you kill four members of our Blood Wolf Team! Did you lose your will to live? What a pity. Still, I am a person of mercy. Today, I will help you end your worthless existence. Bask in my Ice Mysterious Skill!"

Matthew exclaimed as he summoned his vital energy and radiated a cold wind from his body. In an instant, the freezing temperature around them dropped even lower.

'The Cold Intent! He just unleashed a level two Cold Intent! That is an extraordinary skill to behold! A warrior under the Energy Gathering Realm could freeze to death if he were not strong enough to handle something as powerful as the Cold Intent, ' Austin thought as he watched Matthew's display of power.

Violet and Fanny also felt an icy wind blowing to their faces. Violet mustered her demon energy and used it to drive the Cold Intent out of her body.

Fanny, however, was only at the seventh level of the Energy Gathering Realm.

Matthew's Mysterious Ice skill was difficult for her to handle. She covered her body with her hands and shivered furiously. Involuntarily, she shook, and her teeth chattered.

Noticing Fanny's situation, Violet pulled her close towards the area covered by her demon vitality. It was only then that Fanny managed to regain the warmth that she lost in her body.

Austin stood firmly on the ground, steady as a mountain, as the raging Matthew approached. The icy wind blew against his face violently. Tiny icicles stuck on his hair, his skin and his clothes. In a few seconds, Austin was covered with snow completely.

However, Austin did not feel cold. He ran his vital energy to keep his body warm. The light golden vital energy stored in his elixir field spread from his belly to every limb of his body.

His vital energy in his elixir field was almost as big as his fist. Right now, it flowed to wherever he directed it towards. Gently, it spread. It emitted rays of light that grew hotter and hotter, like a gentle morning sun slowly growing into a violent, burning ball of fire. The heat became so intense that it felt as if everything was melting.

Words flashed in Austin's mind: 'The Golden Sun Scripture is the most powerful and potent element in the universe. Its force is indomitable and can only be controlled by the most powerful of creatures.'

It was a passage from the text that introduced the Golden Sun Scripture.

'That sentence is definitely not an exaggeration of the power of the Golden Sun Scripture, ' thought Austin. Warmth started to rise inside his body.

He then continued to chant the holy verses of the Golden Sun Scripture. The warmth started to slowly go out of his skin. Instantly, a hot wind seemed to have enveloped him, melting the snow generated by Matthew. It resembled the hard winter snow the moment the sunshine of spring started to dominate the sky. In a matter of seconds, they dissolved completely.

Matthew's Ice Mysterious Skill was reduced to nothing with Austin's powerful Golden Sun Scripture.

"Ha ha ha! Ice Mysterious Skill? Was that all? I expected it to be more spectacular! That was nothing but a flop! What's so special about that? Why even call it a Mysterious Skill in the first place?"

Austin mocked as he laughed loudly. He then sent a Spiritual Sense Flying Needle towards Matthew. At the same time, he also summoned his Twin Shadow Blades to appear behind him in his mind. With a quick command through telepathy, the Twin Shadow Blades sped towards Matthew in a flash of black and red.

"That is impossible! How did you manage to cultivate a skill that utilized so much heat?"

Matthew roared. He was very surprised.
