“Perhaps the last battle was too much for his body and he must rest now. After all, The Final Fortress was not an easy fight.”

“Guys look! There are cracks in the arena’s defensive wall…” Someone shouted.

A guy who was sitting very close to the wall looked at the wall and realized there were cracks. He stood up and pressed against the wall. A cracking sound was heard as the guy touched it and the wall broke into pieces. Everyone was shocked at the scene.

“It’s not me! There were cracks before I went there, all I did was give it a light push…” The guy explained.

Of course, the rest knew it was not the guy’s fault. They knew it must be Sword Genius who did that as The Final Fortress stayed in his defensive mode throughout the entire battle without attacking. As the ball completely blocked the previous attack of Sword Genius, the only thing that could happen was the sword that pierced through the ball and penetrated straight into the wall.

Everyone thought it was terrifying, all of them knew that the arena wall was unbreakable even with a gold-level weapon from a gold-level rank-3 hunter.

When the man in a black robe, who hadn’t been rooting for Lin Huang saw the broken wall, he said, “I underestimated him, this Sword Genius really is something.”

“Hehe… The best of him and Yu Moli…” The young man in golden robe smirked.

“I believe he would be fighting Yu Moli the next time he logs into the game.” The man in a black robe nodded.

Standing outside the ring on the sixth floor, the silver mask on Lin Huang’s face faded away. Seeing the battle clips of his battle with The Final Fortress, made Lin Huang smirk. He then looked at his scoreboard.

“Nickname: Sword Genius”

“Combat Strength: Silver-Level Rank-3”

“Accumulated Points: 10138”

“Winning Percentage: 100%.”

“Honor: 80th winning streak!”

“I have finally accumulated more than 10,000 points! After I finish the keeper tomorrow, I will have completed the mission that master gave!” Lin Huang was confident. He smirked as he heard everyone around him discussing Sword Genius. Soon after he logged out of the game to let his Life Power regenerate. After exiting the Hunter Arena, Lin Huang saw that the top news on the game’s page was about him – Player Sword Genius has broken the ice that lasted a hundred years and achieved 80 consecutive wins!

Posted just a couple of minutes before; there were more than a million views on the news with more than 50,000 comments. Lin Huang turned off the page after taking a look.

It was past 10 in the morning, he dropped by the wet market and bought some food to take home and it was past 11 when he got back. After cooking grilled meat for Lin Xuan on the third floor, he got down to the kitchen to make lunch for himself and Lin Xin. Although ordering takeaway food would save a lot of time, nothing could beat a good home cooked meal. Since he was not busy, he chose to prepare lunch himself.

It was almost noon when he finally finished the cooking. After placing the food he cooked and the grilled meat on the dining table, Lin Huang got both kids to come to the dining table. After lunch, he got back to his room and downloaded his battle videos. He played all the videos of him fighting the keepers while writing notes to look for ways to improve himself. All of the videos taken were from Lin Huang’s point of view, the audience could not see everything that had happened, but the official videos were clear to him.

He was surprised as he watched the battle with The Final Fortress where he used the Worldly Purification form twice. He managed to upgrade the sword skill to its ultimate form. The feeling was completely different than before. However, Lin Huang could not tell what exactly was different. He almost got it after repeating the video a couple of times, but he did not manage to grasp what it was.

With doubt, he called Mr. Fu.

“What’s wrong? You’ve accomplished the mission already?” Mr. Fu was surprised that Lin Huang called. Lin Huang last consulted Mr. Fu during New Year’s Eve, when he was only at his 50th winning streak. It had just been four days since New Year’s Eve and also the first time the Hunter Arena had reopened since the new year, and this surprised Mr. Fu.

“Not yet, I’m on No.13 now. I’ve exhausted my Life Power and needed to log out of the game. I have something to ask you, master.” Lin Huang told the reason why he called.

“Sure, do tell.” Mr. Fu nodded and put down his stuff in his hand. Lin Huang told Mr. Fu his struggle while Mr. Fu listened carefully. As he finished, Mr. Fu laughed and said, “If I’m not wrong, your power realm should be nuance now, am I right?”

“Nuance?” Lin Huang was puzzled.

“The first level of the sword power realm is called nuance. Once you enter that level, you’ll have full mastery of your sword where all forms will be under your control. You’ll have full control of everything you can see with your naked eyes.”

“The unique sense that you mentioned earlier should be the second level of the sword power realm. The second level of the sword power realm is called consonance. It is the resonance you have with your sword. When you reach this level, the sword is no longer a tool but a partner or friend. You can even sense the emotion of your sword.”

“The feeling that you mentioned about the two sword attacks that you performed earlier could have meant that you’ve arrived at the nuance level. With the trigger from the outside world as well as your heightened focus, it caused you to enter the consonance stage temporarily. However, you could take this opportunity to enter the second level of the realm. Don’t go back to the arena for a couple of days. Take this time to train and see if you can break through.” Mr. Fu suggested after listening to Lin Huang’s problem.

“This is what I thought of as well. If I could grab the feeling properly, my skill would be a level higher than before.” Lin Huang wanted to study the feeling before it disappeared to see if he could level-up his sword skill.

“I will send you a few videos about the consonance stage. Maybe they could inspire you.”

Mr. Fu hung up the phone later on. Soon after, he sent more than ten videos to Lin Huang, who downloaded the videos and watched them one by one. After watching the videos, Lin Huang watched his battle videos repeatedly. He had a clear picture in his mind now. Taking out a wooden sword, he leaped from the balcony of the second floor and started training the different forms of Wildfire Sword at the courtyard on the first floor. One… Two… Three times…

He trained until five in the evening before he finally managed to grasp the unique feeling that he felt in the arena. Just like what Mr. Fu said, he could feel it in the sword. It seemed to be different than before and it felt like he was not holding a weapon as it felt more and more like a part of his body. The sword also felt like an individual creature. It was a contradictory condition.

“Is this the consonance state?”

After grasping the feeling, Lin Huang immersed himself into it and started training without stopping. He trained until past ten at night without noticing. When Lin Huang finally snapped out of the zone, he realized that it was late – 10:28 p.m. He went back into the house immediately thinking that the two kids had yet to have dinner.

“Brother, are you done with your training?” Lin Xin was in the living room.

“Yes, I bet you guys haven’t eaten?” Lin Huang asked.

“I saw you training when it was past six in the evening, so I made Lin Xuan grilled meat and heated up the leftover lunch. There’s some in the oven, go eat it.” Lin Xin smiled at Lin Huang.

Lin Huang went into the kitchen and ate the leftovers.

“Is there any news today?” Lin Huang asked while eating as he had not read the news since noon.

“There’s a big one. It said that there’s a person who accumulated 80 consecutive wins in the Hunter Arena in Division7. Everyone on the network is talking about this.” Lin Xin nodded and said, “They say the last person who managed to get 80 wins was more than 100 years ago…”Find authorized novels in Webnovel,faster updates, better experience,Please click for visiting.

Lin Huang nodded without saying anything. He knew that the winning streak would make big news in Division7. Now the news had circulated in the hunter community as well as the Heart Network. It was almost 11 at night when Lin Huang finished eating, he got Lin Xin and Lin Xuan to go to bed. After cleaning the cutleries and bowl, he showered and went to bed alone. In the following days, Lin Huang would start training at seven in the morning right after his breakfast until it was after 11 at night, training for more than 16 hours each day.

Since he managed to grasp the feeling of the consonance stage on the first day, he now had to train with the feeling to perfect the form in the following days. He could clearly feel that he was mastering the consonance stage as time passed. Soon, five days had passed. At midday, Lin Huang stood in the middle of the courtyard and kept a firm grasp on his sword while smirking.

“I have finally mastered the second stage of the sword power realm. Tomorrow I shall continue to battle in the arena. I wonder who my keeper will be, could it be Yu Moli or Ebonella?” On the next morning, Lin Huang went to the Hunter Arena page in his room after having breakfast. The top news on the main page was still the news of his 80 consecutive wins where the views were up to 100 million with 800,000 comments. If Hunter Arena was opened to Regular Hunters that were below bronze-level, perhaps the views would be 10 times more. After reading the next page and failing to find anything worth his time reading, Lin Huang logged into the game.

He noticed that he had more than five million followers now and still counting.

“I’m an influencer now…” Lin Huang was shocked when he saw the number of followers that he had. He only had 300,000 followers five days ago and it had been less than a week and his followers were now 17 to 18 times more. Just as he logged into the game, a notification was sent to everyone who followed him.

Many of them logged into the game early in the morning as they wanted to wait for Lin Huang’s entrance. They wanted to see Sword Genius live in action.

Just like what happened on earth where people would buy a plane ticket to fly to another country just to watch a football or basketball match. It was different watching a live battle than one on the television and people hoped to see Sword Genius creating more miracles.

Lin Huang checked his body condition, it was good as new with full Life Power. After confirming, he pressed the challenge button. Soon, he was sent to the No.1 ring on the sixth floor. Theoretically, the No.1 ring was meant for players who ranked top 10. It was the first time the system allowed this to happen as Lin Huang defeated Explosive Female Demon who ranked 5th in his 70th battle. Now that he was sent to the No.1 ring, it was clear that the system did some restructuring and gave Lin Huang the privilege like other players in the top 10.

Lin Huang was familiar with this ring, but this time when he entered the room there was nobody inside.

“Did I come too early?” Lin Huang thought it was strange.

“Please hold on, the system is expanding the venue…”

Seeing the notification, Lin Huang realized that the venue was expanding. When Lin Huang pressed the challenge button earlier, all of his followers who were online received the same notification.

“Player Sword Genius has entered the ring No.1!”

Many of them wanted to enter the venue but they then received another notification that said ‘the venue is under maintenance, please enter later…’.

The seats available in the venue were increasing from 300,000 to one million within one minute.

“The expansion is completed, the audience can now enter venue No.1.”

Seeing the notification, many clicked to enter the venue. Within half a minute, the one million seats were taken.

Most of the audience was watching Lin Huang’s battle live for the first time. Seeing Lin Huang with a silver mask on, many of them were curious about what he really looked like.

“Please wait while the system matches your opponent…”

A notification appeared on top of the ring. Lin Huang did not think it was odd that the system had yet to match him an opponent as he had accumulated more than 10,000 points now, there were not many people who were eligible to fight him.

What he did not know was, a sleepy young man received a message from the arena. He looked at the message and thought it was a mistake.

“I haven’t even logged into the game, why did they give me a match!” He did not even bother to read the full message. Just when he was attempting to delete the message, the arena called. It was the voice of a robot.

“We’re sorry to interrupt you, Unbelievable Fate Changer, you have been matched to fight Sword Genius. This is a special mission from the arena, if you defeat Sword Genius, you’ll be rewarded with 10 times more for whatever points you accumulate during the match. If you’d like to accept the challenge, please log in within three minutes.”Find authorized novels in Webnovel,faster updates, better experience,Please click for visiting.

“Failure to log in within three minutes results as the player surrendering and losing the match. Declining the challenge will not result in any punishment, you have the freedom to choose if you’ll battle or not.”

“10 times more?! Doesn’t that mean I could get to rank No.2 straightaway!” Unbelievable Fate Changer sat up immediately.

“But my opponent is the one who defeated Explosive Female Demon and The Final Fortress five days ago…”

“Damn it, I shall give it a try! Since I won’t lose anything even if I do get defeated.” Unbelievable Fate Changer put on his slippers and entered the arena.

After waiting for more than two minutes, Lin Huang’s opponent finally appeared. It was Unbelievable Fate Changer in his pajamas and slippers, the audience was speechless at his attire. He seemed to have just got out of bed as there was still gunk at the corner of his eyes. It was obvious that he entered the arena before he got the time to clean himself.

However, Lin Huang was not surprised at the random opponent he’d been given. Unbelievable Fate Changer ranked No.10 on the sixth-floor leaderboard with more than 12,000 points. Encountering such powerful opponent in his 81st battle, Lin Huang could foresee who was going to be his next opponent.

“That means I’ll have to fight those who ranked No.10 to No.1 during my 81st to 90th battles then? If I defeat Yu Moli, who would be my opponent after my 90th battle?”

Lin Huang was thinking of that, the audience was thinking the same thing too. Unbelievable Fate Changer stood across from Lin Huang and tossed his slippers aside while digging his ears. “You must be thinking who will your opponents be after me, am I right?”

“Yeah, I was guessing.” Lin Huang nodded.

“However, looking at your condition, I supposed you were not online before you were sent here, am I right? What did the arena offer you that you are willing to give up your sleep to fight me?”

“The arena is generous…” Unbelievable Fate Changer laughed when he heard what Lin Huang asked.

“They said I would get 10 times more of my current accumulated points if I defeat you, I don’t think anybody could reject such a sweet temptation.”

“Oh really, thanks.” Lin Huang was surprised. The audience finally understood that the arena treated Sword Genius as the ultimate boss in the game so they came up with a matching reward. It was normal that many would be willing to try their luck since they would not lose anything anyway. The countdown was ending, the fight between Sword Genius and Unbelievable Fate Changer would start in a nick of time! Unbelievable Fate Changer was ranked No.10 on the sixth floor of the arena. He was also the first player that Lin Huang studied as his battle method was unique. Lin Huang had researched his family too. His name was Ji Qingyang, a member of royalty. The Ji family was a special family who was an expert in predicting the future, including Ji Qingyang himself. He could always predict what his opponent was going to do next and he would react before his opponent could attack. Such predictions were even more powerful than the times when Lin Huang encountered the gunmasters. It was like mind-reading.

However, Unbelievable Fate Changer had an obvious flaw in his body physique because it was just slightly stronger than an ordinary silver-level rank-3 player. He was much weaker than Lin Huang and Yu Moli. If his opponent was fast, even with his prediction, he would not have enough time to react. The easiest way to fight him was to be so fast that he couldn’t avoid the attacks.

As the countdown ended, Lin Huang took out his silver-level battle sword. He was like lightning when he lunged towards Unbelievable Fate Changer who was 15 meters away within seconds. It was so fast that the audience could not catch him. In reality, Unbelievable Fate Changer had predicted that, but before he could react, Lin Huang had already passed by him.

“I’m sorry, I needed to do this quick.” Lin Huang kept his sword. Blood spilled from Unbelievable Fate Changer’s waist, his body had been sliced into half.

“Congratulations, you have won the battle!”

“You managed to kill your opponent in one hit, you have obtained 2 points!”

Seeing the body of Unbelievable Fate Changer disappear and the notification from the system, left the audience shocked.

“How could Sword Genius have managed to kill Unbelievable Fate Changer who ranked No.10 in one hit?!”

“I thought this match would take a while, it ended so quickly.”

“Sword Genius’s attack was too fast, so fast that Unbelievable Fate Changer had no time to react at all.”

“This Sword Genius is even more terrifying than before…” The man in black robe said.

“It’s just the

form but it seems like he was in a state where his speed and attack power was multiplied. This kid is really something!” The man in golden robe exclaimed.

Lin Huang who stood in the ring was stunned as a notification popped up after he killed Unbelievable Fate Changer.

“You have learned a new form of

by yourself. Would you like to upgrade
