Shua Shua Shua...
As soon as the green steel sword was yielded, countless shadows were instantly created.
The Qingyun sword technique might not be comparable to those profound sword techniques, but this sword technique was the most basic technique, whether it was stabbing, sweeping, slashing, parrying, slashing, and so on.
All the sword moves were omnipresent.
As the sword in Victor's hand became faster and faster, many sword moves were displayed one by one. Each and every move were connected, and the sword's momentum was like flowing water.
Seeing that Victor was putting his all in performing the Qingyun sword technique, Gu Xu and Hua Feng were also paying full attention to him. They didn't even dare to blink, afraid that they would miss a move.
Finally, Victor finished performing the entire set of Qingyun sword techniques. He turned around and saw that the two senior brothers' gaze were dull, as if they had trapped in an illusion.
Seeing that the two senior brothers were still immersed in the sword technique that he had just used, they were slowly recollecting it.
"Senior Brother Hua, Senior Brother Gu!"
Victor called out softly.
Hearing Victor's call, the two senior brothers slowly came back to their senses.
Hua Feng and Gu Xu looked at each other. Both of them could see the extreme shock in each other's eyes.
This sword technique... could be considered perfect!
Even their master didn't have such perfect mastery of the sword technique. Although this sword technique was only the basic sword technique of the Qingyun Sect, that was precisely why they were even more surprised.
All the disciples of the Qingyun Sect knew this sword technique, from the sect master to the servant disciples.
He was probably the only disciple who had achieved this level of mastery for this sword technique.
Perhaps only the sect master of the Qingyun Sect, Zhang Lingren, who had created this sword technique, could achieve such a level.
However, the sect master had been in seclusion all year round, so they weren't able to receive the sect master's guidance, let alone have the chance to admire the sect master's demonstration of this sword technique.
On the other side of the arena.
Zhang Huan's eyes widened when he saw this scene.
Yesterday, he returned to his dormitory, laid on his bed, and he thought hard. He still could not figure out how Victor had done that last move. If he could see through it earlier, it would have been impossible for him to lose.
Victor must have seized an opportunity and took advantage of it. If he steadied his mentality and competed again, the outcome would definitely be different. After all, there was a gap between their cultivation levels.
Therefore, when he heard that his senior brothers from the martial arts peak had come to perform a test, he had rushed to the training field early and had planned to challenge Victor again. He wanted to redeem himself and show his strength to his two senior brothers.
Who knew that after seeing Victor's true ability for the Qingyun sword technique today, Zhang Huan deeply understood that his thoughts were still too simple.
Even if he were to retry ten or a hundred more times, it would still be impossible for him to defeat Victor.
He had lost, and he wholeheartedly accepted his defeat.
Meanwhile, the surrounding spectators were all envious. Although their strength and eyesight were still unable to sense the exquisiteness of Victor's sword technique, when they heard their two senior brothers' constant praise, they understood that Victor's display was extraordinary.
Victor finished displaying his Qingyun sword technique and looked at his two senior brothers quietly.
He believed that he was definitely qualified to enter the martial arts peak and become an official disciple, so he wasn't in a hurry and waited patiently.
On the side.
"Senior Brother Gu, what do you think of him?"
Hua Feng's handsome face was full of approval, but Victor was recommended by him, so it was more appropriate to leave the decision-making role to his Senior Brother Gu.
"In terms of swordsmanship, I'm not as good as him!" Gu Xu straightforwardly expressed his opinion.
"Although it sounds very discouraging, this kid's talent in swordsmanship is really too bizarre. To say something offensive to others, let alone the two of us, even the entire sect can't be compared to him. Of course, except for the sect master." Hua Feng nodded his head in approval.
Gu Xu nodded slightly, agreeing with Hua Feng's words.
"Congratulations, junior brother. You've successfully passed the test. Now, go pack up and follow us to the martial arts peak!"
As soon as Senior Brother Gu spoke, the crowd below the stage immediately became excited. They were all cheering loudly, as if they are the ones that had been chosen.
When these disciples heard about this matter, most of them knew that the likelihood for Victor to enter the martial arts peak was high considering that the two senior brothers had personally invigilated the test. However, after hearing Senior Brother Gu's approval on the spot, they felt as if they could see their own shadows in Victor.
Zhang Huan, who was standing at the back of the disciples, was clenching his fists tightly. He swore in his heart that he would definitely enter the martial arts peak.
Zhang Huan took one last look at Victor's back and left without hesitation. He wanted to be like Victor, cultivate as hard or even harder than him.
Yes, as long as one cultivated diligently, everyone had a chance to be selected. Other than those few talented disciples, everyone began as a servant disciple and worked their way up.
After becoming an official disciple, one could enter the martial arts peak. If one performed well and was noticed by one of the seven elders, they could be accepted as an elder's disciple.
As for Sect Master Zhang Lingren, he had been in secluded cultivation for dozens of years. Unless there was an important matter in the sect that required the sect master to make a decision, he would not appear under normal circumstances. Moreover, the main affairs of the sect were currently being taken care of by the First Elder Song Xiuwen.
Therefore, if one wanted to see the sect master, they might not even have the chance to see him even once every few decades. Naturally, wanting to become Sect Master Zhang Lingren's disciple was out of the window.
After passing through a wooden bridge halfway up the mountain, he followed his two senior brothers all the way to the martial arts peak.
Victor's heart was very calm at this moment. After all, he had already passed the assessment, it will be a new test from now on.
There was still a big difference between the martial arts peak and the servant hall. There were only four people living in each dormitory, and in the servant hall's courtyard, there were more than ten people living in each dormitory. The beds were all placed together as well.
After putting away their luggage in the dormitory, Hua Feng and Gu Xu brought Victor to the martial arts peak's dining hall and the martial arts arena.
Core disciples were rarely seen on the daily basis, but two of them appeared today. It seemed that they were leading the way for a new disciple.
Along the way, countless disciples looked at each other. Everyone was discussing about it.
"Who is this?"
"If I'm not wrong, he is Victor who defeated Zhang Huan, the number one person in the servant hall!"
"The one who defeated the strong with the weak?"
"I heard that he had not entered the third-rate realm even after entering the sect for three years!"
"Then how did he defeat Zhang Huan?"
"I know, he seemed to have defeated Zhang Huan with the Qingyun sword technique that he had perfected."
"Perfect sword technique? Could it be that he hasn't entered the third-rate realm because he had spent all his time and energy on practicing his sword technique?"
"That's the only sensible explanation. But even so, perfect sword techniques couldn't be ahicved with pure hard work."
"So this Victor must have some outstanding features."
