“Hehe, let’s wait until the tournament is over. Once he finishes the tournament, he will come talk to me, and then I will ask him about it.”

“Me too, I can’t pass up the opportunity of talking to a Blade Warrior.”

“That’s good. Watch out while you are on the Moon. I know the Li probably already know as much as we do, if not more.”

“Yeah, yeah. I am not a kid.” Wu Xin nodded and then turned off the terminal. If Wang Tong were the Blade Warrior, she felt it was her responsibility to protect him from harm.

Ma Dutian hung up and talked to an android right beside him.

“Still not working?”

“We are unable to connect at the nuclear level. If he is the Blade Warrior, why don’t we let him give it a try?” The android asked.

“That’s my opinion too. We have been working on the new battery for too long. Maybe, only the Blade Warrior would be able to help us. How’s the progress on the construction of the BSG?”

“The Battlestar is ready, except for the power unit-the battery.”

Ma Dutian nodded. The Battlestar Galactica was the project he had been working on for his entire life, and the only component missing was its power supply. Ma Dutian conceded that he would have to ask Wang Tong for a solution after all.

Although Ma Dutian still knew very little about this boy, he was convinced that there was someone extremely powerful behind him, helping him along the way.

Meanwhile, on the moon, Zhang Mi, the journalist had been promoted to the senior reporter at the ETV thanks to her successful program on Wang Tong. The chief editor named Hitesh was very pleased with her work, and even made a move on her, asking her out for dinner.

She dug deeper into Wang Tong’s past and created a special program based on it. The program was a smashing hit, as everyone was very interested in knowing more about this mysterious boy.

The special program had not only given more information about Wang Tong, but it had also reminded everyone of the former glory of Ayrlarng. Two heroic figures had graduated from this crestfallen academy, Li Feng and Rilangalos.

As Ayrlarng had fallen from grace and reached rock bottom, Samantha walked in and made drastic changes to the school. Ever since then, Ayrlarng seemed to have come back to life and improved significantly in METAL and Fleet combat.

Truth be told, the roles which Wang Tong and Karl had played in revitalizing the school were much greater than those of Ma Xiaoru and Wang Ben.

People saw the first sliver of hope in seeing a glorious Ayrlarng when Wang Tong and Karl had prevailed in the fleet combat tournament and with Now, with Wang Tong’s advancement into the final eight, the promising outlook of Ayrlarng already seemed like a reality.

Exactly how strong was Wang Tong?

Would Ayrlarng restore its former glory?

Was Wang Tong the reincarnation of the two legendary fighters?

Ever since Wang Tong’s victory over Li Ruoer, questions related to Wang Tong had become the second most searched items online. The most popular items were still related to Einherjar Wannabe.

Ayrlarng’s rising to fame couldn’t have come at a more convenient time, since it was around August, and many students were deciding which school to go to. Although Ayrlarng was not yet as famous as Capth, it had become very popular among the citizens of Shangjin. Not only did Ayrlarng boast the best fleet combat program in the entire Confederation, but it also hosted the most influential student group, the S-Club. As flurries of applications arrived at the Admission’s office, the department head of the Admissions finally felt that he was working at a top academy.

The final battle for section four was about to draw back its curtain. It would be a fight between Lie Jian and Wang Ben.

Wang Ben sat quietly inside of the resting room, surrounded by darkness. He needed a period of solitude to reflect on his life, and on what this fight meant for him. In addition to his father, the most influential person in his life had been his friend Wang Tong. Sometimes, he wished that he could live Wang Tong’s life, no longer constrained by his birth.

This match was deemed to be an uphill battle for both combatants, since both fighters were aggression-focused.

The arena was packed with Martians who came to watch Lie Jian’s performance. They had been getting bored with the sophisticated but mundane fights and had been looking forward to Lie Jian’s much more visceral performance.

Wang Ben walked to the stage amidst the cheers of the audiences. He glanced across the stage with a placid expression. Wang Ben never cared about fame; he was on the stage for only one thing, fighting a tough opponent.

Wang Ben was also very adamant in upholding his values, which was a nice way of saying that he was stubborn. For example, he could have passed the maze quickly without fighting the Zergs. Instead, he had to make sure that all Zergs were dead, and almost lost his ticket to the tournament because of that.

Every coin had two sides. Although Wang Ben was hindered by his stubbornness at times, in the long run, he had greatly benefited from his iron will.

Although the story of Wang Ben’s two mind-opening operations had been a laughing stock among many members of the great houses, by now, no one considered him a failure, but a paragon of perseverance.

Wang Tong and his friends had also arrived at the arena. Although some of the Ayrlarng students didn’t want to attend Wang Ben’s match, Wang Tong had convinced them to come in the end. Wang Tong knew that Wang Ben didn’t switch school willingly; he must have been forced to do so by his father.

Everyone on Team Ayrlarng had come to the arena, except for Karl, who still held a grudge against Wang Ben’s betrayal.

As Wang Ben glanced at the audiences, his eyes paused for a brief second on Team Ayrlarng, then he looked away, as a warmth rose inside him.

Among all the students of Ayrlarng, the one person who was able to catch up with Wang Tong’s progress was neither Ma Xiaoru nor Hu Yangxuan; it was Wang Ben.

As a swell of cheers erupted among the Martian audiences, Lie Jian sauntered onto the stage. He threw away the cape, revealing the swarthy and brawny body underneath as he raised his fists in the air as a response to his fans.

Lie Jian did not think Wang Ben would be a tough opponent, since the latter had to try twice just to pass the mind-open operation. However, he thought it would be fun to humiliate General Hu Ben by defeating his son. Chapter 377: Hand To Hand

Translator: Oneshotwonder Editor: Hitesh_

Both fighters had arrived on the stage with the unswerving conviction that they would be the victor. Neither of them was known for modesty; it was all in or all out.

Wang Ben initiated his tactics and charged up his soul energy to four hundred and twenty. This was an incredible amount for someone who lacked many advantages that Lie Jian had, and was the result of hundreds upon hundreds of hours of hard work.

Wang Ben had only been mind opened for less than a year, yet he had already reached the top of the level five; such an achievement was unprecedented, so much so that even his opponent Lie Jian was caught off guard by his rate of improvement. Surprise aside, Lie Jian was not a bit worried about his victory; a stronger opponent would only make the fight more entertaining for him.

Lie Jian started his tactics of the Blaze as his eyes slowly turned into pools of molten iron.


“Tiger’s Roar!”


The ground under both fighters trembled, and the two contestants disappeared into thin air simultaneously.

The Racing Tiger versus the Fist of Fire.

Wang Ben’s supporters held onto their seats as they become worried. Not only was the Fist of Blaze powerful, but it was also infused with the vicious fire poison. If Wang Ben come to contact with the fire poison, he might as well have lost the fight.


After the impact, Lie Jian stood where he had appeared while Wang Ben stumbled a few steps back.

A smug crept onto Lie Jian’s face as he said, “Fist of the Tiger? Haha! more like the Fist of pussy-cat!” Lie Jian was well known for his conceit, and many fighters had become the victim of his poisonous tongue.

Wang Ben was unruffled by the taunt; he checked his system and found out that the fire poison did not break through his defense. The Fist of the Racing Tiger was the most righteous force in the world, and therefore, its cultivator was practically immune to any devious tactics, such as the fire poison.

As Wang Ben charged up his soul energy again, his body trembled slightly, and then he shouted out the name of his technique.

“The Eighteen Tigers-Mountain Tiger!”

Lie Jian didn’t flinch as he closed in onto Wang Ben, and was going to face the attack head-on.


The impact sent a wave of explosions throughout the arena, followed by a swelling of cheers. The audiences loved watching the intense hand to hand combat more than those that heavily relied on soul energy.


Lie Jian’s fiery fist blocked the attack with ease while the Martian invaded Wang Ben’s defense with waves of fire poison.

However deadly the fire poison was, Wang Ben simply didn’t care as he retaliated with abandon. Although Lie Jian’s defense had prevented him from releasing the full power of Fist of the Racing tiger, Wang Ben was not deterred by the setback. Instead, it spurred him to attack with even more vigor.

The stronger the opponent, the more powerful was the Fist of the Racing Tiger.

Wang Ben’s fists were gaining frequency and vigor by each strike, and his soul energy was also steadily increasing. Every single blow was meant to kill. However, Wang Ben’s increasing power didn’t alert Lie Jian. Wang Ben was still too weak to be a worthy opponent for him; he could be a practice target at best.

Wang Ben could sense the contempt in his opponent, but he remained confident that he was no less powerful than Lie Jian.

By the tenth blow, Wang Ben finally started to slowly gain the upper hand in the battle, as his soul energy was about to surpass that of Lie Jian. Lie Jian was forced into a corner; it was too late for him to crank up his soul energy, since a sudden increase in soul energy would guarantee an opening in his defense.

Before the discovery of GN force, physical strength was the dominating factor on the battlefield. However, to use the physical strength, one would first need to practice the inner breathing and increase the strength slowly. At the same time, the soul energy also needed to be increased slowly using tactics. Lie Jian had planned to focus on aggression and finish the fight as soon as possible. Therefore, his soul energy had been increasing at a much slower rate than his opponent.

By then, Wang Ben had overwhelmed Lie Jian with his attacks, The energy inside him bound with his will, so his execution of moves was flawless and deadly.

Wang Ben’s overwhelming power also came from the solid foundation he had built ever since he was a child. General Hu Ben was known for being a strict mentor, and Wang Ben had followed his father’s orders faithfully< never thinking of slacking off.

Although the foundation he had built didn’t show its effect immediately after his mind open operation, over time, it had lent Wang Ben significant strength during the most difficult times.


Wang Ben’s punch hit square, and Lie Jian was blown a few feet out.

Suddenly, silence fell into the arena.

Lie Jian gathered himself and cracked a smile; he was pleased by his opponent’s power.

Lie Jian reckoned that Wang Ben not only had the perfect physical defense, but he was also resistant to the poison.

“Oh, shit! When did he become so powerful?” Hu Yangxuan was astonished by Wang Ben’s strength. He noticed that Wang Ben didn’t use any tricks or element of surprise. He was trying to subdue his opponent by only force.

“Lie Jian was holding back his strength. We will see. ” Wang Tong cracked a smile. Nevertheless, he was impressed by Wang Ben’s improvement, and he figured that it must have something to do with the fact that Wang Ben had opened his mind in his second operation.


Suddenly, Lie Jian’s fists were engulfed in flames. Unlike soul Mastery, these flames were infused with Li Jian’s own soul energy.

Wang Ben remained calm as he clenched his fists, getting ready for whatever would come next. All the while, both fighters’ soul energy were burning and toiling inside their sea of consciousness.

“Come on!” Lie Jian shouted and attacked first.

Wang Ben followed and charged at the attacker head on.


In a blink, the two had exchanged a dozen blows. Both fighters attacked directly, trying to subdue their opponent.

“Gosh, is he stupid or something? Why can’t he use some tricks like a feint or a dodge?”

“Hehe, you said it as if he has a choice. He can only defeat Lie Jian with a direct attack. ” Turbolix said.

“Wang Ben’s improvement is very impressive. When he first came to Capth, he was even weaker than me!” One of the combatant from Capth lamented.

“Well, have you noticed that Wang Ben had spent practically every single minute of his life on training? Practice makes one perfect! Plus, he is also very talented.” Turbolix said.

“What about his cultivation? He has already reached level five in such a short time.” Another student said.

“He didn’t have a life, that’s why. No girlfriend and no hobbies equal no distraction. ” Turbolix answered. He knew that these students were simply jealous of Wang Ben’s achievement, but had failed to see the hard work behind it.

Turbolix had been watching Wang Ben ever since he entered Capth. Although at the time, Wang Ben was much weaker than most students, Turbolix had concluded that he would catch up very quickly, because he had the most important quality for a powerful cultivator: perseverance. The real advancement wouldn’t come overnight. Instead, it was built upon thousands and thousands of mundane repetitions.

Nevertheless, Turbolix was also impressed by Wang Ben’s improvement, and he believed that no one in the confederation had ever made such a great leap in their cultivation.


GN force splattered out form the impact of two fists as both fighters took a few steps back. Lie Jian had received a solid blow on the chest, while Wang Ben had gotten three. Each blow Wang Ben had received was infused with fire poison. By then, Lie Jian was convinced that his fire poison had already worked its way into Wang Ben’s system.

Wang Ben would feel the poison slithering in his blood vein as he tried to contain it with soul energy. The pain would be unbearable to any ordinary human. However, Wang Ben acted as if nothing had happened.

Wang Ben’s mettle and determination had impressed even Lie Jian. Chapter 378: One Simple Punch

Translator: Oneshotwonder Editor: Hitesh_

Lie Jian wanted to give Wang Ben more pressure, since he was concerned that the latter would eventually be able to overcome the fire poison. As the belligerent punch almost reached Wang Ben, Lie Jian folded the energy like folding a piece of cloth, and completely changed its property.

“Palm of the Fire Cloud!”

Lie Jian was well versed in many techniques in addition to the tactics of the Blaze Thanks to his solid foundation that he built using the Tactics of the Blaze, Lie Jian was able to master any tactics that he later practiced.

Wang Ben took a deep breath and shouted as he punched back at his opponent. It was common knowledge that the softer energy inside the Fire Cloud Fist was the bane for overbearing forces such as that of Fist of the Racing Tiger.

Although Fist of the Racing tiger was a powerful tactics, Wang Ben had yet to know how to use it to counter soft energies.

After the light disappeared, Elder Tuoba and Asura Zhao Kun, as well as that Exalted-cloak World Spiritist, had all disappeared.
