Dammit. She is strong.
Marcus was struggling, the fight just started, and he was already being suppressed. In his hand was Jörmungandr, and every time Xiao Mei attacked with her sword, he had no other choice but to redirect it.
Her attacks were fast and powerfully, and awfully accurate. He wasn't able to counter in any way. At this point, he is already using the Eternal Snake Fist to move and Jörmungandr to defend.
Moving the energy inside his body, he directed it towards the Lightning Armor Pathway, and soon lightning emerged from his body and covered it in its entirety.
Surprised Xiao Mei moved back to evaluate the situation, but before she was able to even start thinking, Marcus was Infront of her stabbing with his dagger.
With no time to spare she tried to dodge, suddenly she saw lightning block her movement. And with no other choice, she blocked with her weapon.
Hearing the cracking of her sword she didn't know what to think. It was a rank nine weapon! And I this short fight it was already almost destroyed!
Finding an opening she made some distance between them, and while retreating she gather qi in her sword and shoot out a sword beam.
Marcus had no other choice but to dodge, and with his body tilted at an impossible angle hid shoulder was grazed.
Blood was slowly draping from the wound painting his sleeve red. At this moment he had a weird feeling. His heart was beating faster, his mind clear and a smile on his face. He was excited, he was barely able to hold his own, but he was enjoying the fight!
It was a first time where he actually had an opponent that could stand against him!
Shooting lightning at Xiao Mei, he saw it being deflected with her Qi. Not stopping his momentum attacked with Jörmungandr and lightning.
Wounds started to accumulate on both of them. Xiao Mei used almost all techniques she knew, but she was only Marcus's equal.
His lighting was powerful and could be used in both offense and defense. His body moved as if there were no bones in it. If she got too close to the lightning armor, he could surround her with lighting, and if she is too far, he can constantly shoot at her, even if she can redirect one or two lightning's at one time, it will drain her Qi too fast.
Marcus was in no better situation, no matter what he did, she always slips away at the last moment. Every time he thought of a new strategy she had a technician to counter it.
If he wants to win, there is no other choice but to reveal some of his secrets. He tried to keep them all as his trump cards, but there is no other way if he wants to win.
Jörmungandr slashed through the air, Seeing Xiao Mei moving out of the range of his attack, Marcus smiled. Jörmungandr extended and slashed Xiao Mei abdomen, blood started to gush out of the wound and stained the stage, she collapsed to her knees and held her hands to the wound.
Marcus won the moment he decided to use one of his trump cards the fight was over. He didn't have a lot of them, but each one of them gave him a huge advantage.
Xiao Mei was stunned, she never expected that a dagger would have such an amazing ability. Gathering her Qi in the wound, she sealed it as not to lose more blood. She already lost this fight, but this was not the end when her wounds heal she will challenge him again.
Standing up she looked at Marcus; his body didn't look any better than hers, filled with cuts and small wounds.
"I will win next time." There was no need for the teacher to announce the result, both of them knew it already. Having nothing else to say she left.
Marcus felt relieved, satisfied and… sad? He had to admit that this fight was exciting, it made his blood boil. Now that it's over, Marcus felt sad that it ended, he wants to feel that thrill of fighting with all he had.
Next time she won't get caught off guard like this time, and if he wanted to win, he would need to use another trump card. Is it a waste? One day they can save his life. Maybe he was too reckless to use it.
Let's not think about that too much, it's done, and there is no point in regretting it. Coming back to his room, Marcus took a Spirit Stone out of his storage ring, holding it in his hands he felt the dense Qi contained in it.
When he practices Divine Body Modeling, Marcus usually absorbs Qi from the environment, but with a small change, he will be able to absorb it from Spirit Stones. Holding the Spirit Stone in his hands, he slowly started to absorb it.
Soon he felt a cold stream of clear Qi entering his body, and as it passed by his wounds, they closed and healed. Marcus felt his body getting stronger at a pace he thought was impossible.
Finishing, he felt the spirit stone in his hand crumble. Feeling his muscles tense up, Marcus knew that he improved by a lot.
Muscle strength: 31
An increase of 2. 2?! It is ten times more than the normal! This is amazing!
Wait, he was in a fight just now, and his body got damaged quite a lot, and if it works the same as when he normally practices when there is no damage to his body, it would be an increase of 1. This is still five times more than usual. If he continues like this, he can strengthen his body to equal a rank nine cultivator in just a few weeks!
