Lin Pingzhi, who obtained the Bi Xie Manual, was extremely excited. He ran all the way to the back mountain and entered the woods. After confirming that there was no one around, he finally took out the Bi Xie Sword Manual copied by Yang Huan.
“Father! Mother! Your child has finally found the Bi Xie Sword Manual! I will practice the martial arts in the manual well and avenge you!” He looked up to the sky and let out a long howl to vent his emotions before turning his attention to the Bi Xie Sword Manual in his hand.
However, as soon as he read the first line, Lin Pingzhi was stunned. It was written: “To learn this skill, you must first castrate yourself!”
“No… this can’t be… this is impossible!”
At first, Lin Pingzhi did not believe it at all, but soon he calmed down. He remembered the Lin family’s ancestral motto that he had been told by his parents: The Lin family’s Bi Xie Sword Manual can only be taught to Lin family descendants who have offspring!
At first, Lin Pingzhi was puzzled by this ancestral motto, but now he understood!
That’s it! No wonder that guy surnamed Yang didn’t think highly of the Bi Xie Sword Manual! No wonder he wanted to spread the Bi Xie Sword Manual! This evil thief surnamed Yang wants to cause chaos in the martial arts world!”
For a while, Lin Pingzhi’s heart was in chaos…
However, Yang Huan’s goal was indeed as such. Although the Bi Xie Sword Manual was a bit weird, there had always been people in the martial arts world who were driven by interests. Some people would do anything to learn the peerless martial arts.
Yang Huan wanted to see if he could trigger the system by popularizing the Bi Xie Sword Manual. If he couldn’t trigger it, he wouldn’t lose anything. If he could trigger it, it would be a big profit intead. No matter how you looked at it, it was a safe and profitable deal.
As for Yang Huan at this time, he was still following his daily routine. He got up early in the morning, first went to indulge with his madam, and then went to practice. The Repentance Cliff was occupied by Yue Buqun, but there were still many places in the back mountain where he could practice.
He was practicing a set of swordsmanship at a cliff. This set of sword techniques still belongs to the protagonist of Rainbow Cat and Blue Rabbit Seven Heroes, but it’s not part of Long Rainbow Sword Technique.
This sword technique is called the Fire Dance Whirlwind Sword Technique!
That white-clothed young man could become a powerhouse because of the Fire Dance Whirlwind Swordsmanship, which accounted for a large factor.
Once the Fire Dance Whirlwind Sword Technique was practiced to the thirteenth level, its power was absolutely earth-shattering!
However, it was indeed extremely difficult to cultivate this sword technique. Yang Huan had been practicing for two days and hadn’t even mastered the first level yet.
But upon careful consideration, this progress was normal.
After all, the father of that young man in white had been practicing for several decades and had just barely managed to reach the tenth level, and he still couldn’t control it freely.
Yang Huan immediately stopped his movements and turned his head towards the cliff edge.
At this moment, a man wearing a monk’s robe and a buzz cut jumped onto the cliff.
From his appearance, he looked like a monk, but his behavior didn’t seem like one.
Yang Huan raised his Long Rainbow Sword in his hand, pointed it directly at the man, and asked, “Who are you?”
However, the man’s eyes lit up with greed, and he said, “What a good sword!”
“Such a good sword falling into the hands of a little brat like you is simply a waste. You should hand it over to your grandpa monk to keep it safe for you!”
With those words, he immediately attacked.
He drew his long dagger from his waist and slashed it straight at Yang Huan!
The speed and force were both not to be underestimated.
But Yang Huan only lifted his sword with one hand and blocked the man’s attack.
“A monk who uses a dagger… are you Tian Boguang?”
Yang Huan immediately guessed the man’s identity.
The man didn’t try to hide it either, and laughed, “Good kid, do you have the skills to back up your tough talk? You’re not a match for your big brother.”
“Now I’m called Bukebu Jie!”
Tian Boguang didn’t stop there and continued to attack Yang Huan with his knife.
His martial arts skills were indeed extraordinary, his footwork and dagger skills were both unique.
His dagger skills were fierce and unmatched, while his footwork was very light, elusive.
Before Linghu Chong had learned the Dugu Nine Swords, he was completely outmatched by Tian Boguang. This shows that Tian Boguang’s martial arts skills were indeed not low!
But now, his opponent was not Linghu Chong who had not yet learned the Dugu Nine Swords, but the sword master of Long Rainbow Sword Sword, Yang Huan!
Rainbow Penetrating the Sun!
He saw Yang Huan jump high into the air, emitting a fiery red, scorching sword aura all around his body.
The sword aura gathered on the edge of the sword, and the whole person charged down fiercely!
Tian Boguang’s pupils contracted, watching Yang Huan’s attack, his face changed drastically.
He knew that he couldn’t dodge, so he had no choice but to block it with his long dagger.
A loud noise rang out, echoing through the world.
Tian Boguang’s long dagger broke into several pieces with a loud sound, and he rolled backward along the ground for more than ten zhang, finally being stopped by a big tree.
“Cough… cough…” Tian Boguang kept coughing, and his mouth and body were covered in blood.
His expression was extremely painful, obviously seriously injured.
At this moment, he didn’t even have the strength to stand up.
“Tell me, what are you doing at Huashan School?” The sharp edge of the Changhong Sword was pressed against Tian Boguang’s throat.
“I… I came to save people…”
“Who did you come to save?”
“Two female disciples from the Hengshan School.”
Earlier, Linghu Chong took over as the head of the Hengshan School, and the school sent two nuns to Huashan to deliver a message, but they were held back by Huashan School.
Tian Boguang’s trip to save people was somewhat justified.
“What is Linghu Chong doing now?” Yang Huan asked.
He wasn’t interested in Linghu Chong, but rather in the power of the Sun Moon Holy Cult.
The Sun Moon Holy Cult was not weak, and if he could control it, it would be the best!
“Linghu Chong was invited by someone to go to Blackwood Clif to deal with Dongfang Bubai (the leader of the Sun Moon Holy Cult),” Tian Boguang answered.
Sure enough, the battle at Blackwood Cliff was about to begin.
Yang Huan also wanted to join in the fun of the battle at Blackwood Cliff.
If he could take advantage of the opportunity to seize the Sun Moon Holy Cult, it would be the best!
However, his mid-stage acquired level of cultivation… was probably not enough…
At this moment, Yang Huan’s eyes looked at Tian Boguang differently.
Yang Huan immediately helped Tian Boguang up and said to him, “Brother Tian, we’ve already met through fighting, and I feel like we’re a match made in heaven!”
“How about this, let’s become sworn brothers today, right here and right now. What do you think?”
Tian Boguang: ???
You beat me up like this, and now you want to become sworn brothers with me?
What does that mean?
In the original novel, Linghu Chong was expelled from Huashan School, but over time he was appointed as the emergency head of Hengshan School.
Dongfang Bubai, literally “Invincible East”, is a fictional character in the wuxia novel The Smiling, Proud Wanderer by Jin Yong. He is the leader of the Sun Moon Holy Cult (日月神教), an “unorthodox” martial arts school. In his quest to dominate the wulin (martial artists’ community), he castrated himself to fulfil the prerequisite for learning the skills in a martial arts manual known as the Sunflower Manual (葵花寶典), and became a formidable martial artist after mastering those skills.
