Seeing that the kid was still able to stand up after his punch, the middle-aged man’s face showed a trace of surprise. In a blink of an eye, it was covered with ferocity. “You dare to do that kind of thing- I won’t forgive you even if you’re just a kid.”
As soon as he said it, a powerful murderous aura emerged from the man, much stronger than Lin Tian’s murderous aura.
Although Li Tian didn’t understand what the man was talking about, he felt it when the man’s murderous aura exploded out. Besides, Ai Siqi was still in his arms. Even if he was not the man’s opponent, he had to save Ai Siqi.
The man stomped on one foot, shouted angrily and shot towards Lin Tian. Under his immense force, the entire ground was filled with cracks, spreading to the sidewall.
Seeing this scene, Lin Tian’s eyes shrunk.
‘These grounds are all made of hard bluestone and this man could crack it with a single stomp… I must not let down my guard.’
“Don’t underestimate me. That was just a sneak attack before.”
Lin Tian revealed his strong fighting intent. He did not show weakness.
When he was about to meet Lin Tian’s fist, the man’s complexion showed a slight change. The man suddenly noticed that there was a layer of invisible substances on the kid’s hand.
The two fists collided without any sound as if the world became still for a moment. But if you look closely, you can find a slight gap between the two punches.
“Hmph! Kid, even if you’re a Devil Fruit ability user, how can a firefly’s light compete with the moon’s light!”
The strength of the man’s hand suddenly increased, only to hear a sound like glass shattering out of thin air.
Lin Tian was like a cannonball, hitting the wall behind him, knocking out a big hole, and entering a shop.
People who were shopping finally saw the commotion. They screamed in fright and rushed toward the door.
The man who just blasted Lin Tian away was not happy at all. Instead, his face suddenly twisted because the man felt a killing intent behind his back. It turns out that it was Lin Tian’s Space Blade, which suddenly appeared behind the man and slashed at the man’s back.
Armament Haki* covered the man’s fists. Without any hesitation, the man-made a backhand strike and the man caught the dark round blade.
((*TL note: Armament Haki/Busoshoku Haki is a form of Haki that allows the user to use their own spiritual energy to create, in essence, an invisible armor around themself, providing incredible offensive and defensive capabilities.))
Lin Tian, covered with smoke, sensed this scene and let out a shout.
The Space Blade exploded immediately, divided into countless tiny blades and shot at the man with extreme speed.
The man coldly snorted. These tiny sharp blades fell onto the ground at once and then disappeared.
Obviously, this man was also a powerful Devil Fruit Ability User.
((**TL note: Tempest Kick. The Rankyaku is a powerful projectile technique in which the users start by kicking at very high speeds and strength, sending out a sharp compressed air blade or “Sickle Wind” that can slice objects and significantly damage a human body.))
Lin Tian kicked out a light blue wave at the man from the smoke!
((***TL note: Shave. Soru is one of the six techniques of “Rokushiki”. The Soru allows the users to move at extremely high speeds to avoid attacks, as well as to attack at higher speeds and with greater power. It was revealed that the principle of this move was to kick off the ground at least ten times in the blink of an eye.))
At the same time he sent out a Tempest Kick, he instantly teleported into the man’s side with a Death Orb in his left hand. But if you look closely, there were countless small spikes on the surface of the ball and the tip of each spike had sharp barbs.
And the entire black ball was constantly rotating…
This move was a new move that Lin Tian had created after years of fighting. It was an upgraded version of the Death Orb. This black ball not only had the same explosive power as the Death orb but it was more powerful.
The most important advantage is that the spikes on top are rotating at high speed. Even steel will instantly be shred to pieces. Not only can they attack, but at certain times, it can also be used as a defensive method.
This combo could have been an issue but the man’s face still had a relaxed look.
“Although the Six Marine Styles is strong, it depends on who you’re facing.”
The man sent a kick. Since he kicked the Tempest Kick that can cut steel to pieces, it shredded his pants. But under the shredded cloths, it was obvious that Armament Haki stretched down to man’s feet.
Although the man kicked Lin Tian’s Tempest Kick to pieces, he also had many defences above him.
Lin Tian’s Death Orb was already only a few centimeters away from the man.
A cold glow flashed.
Lin Tian’s complexion changed drastically. He quickly let go of Death Orb in his hand and hid to the side.
A giant crack appeared at the wall behind Lin Tian without the slightest sign. The whole house was cut in half.
The setting sun gleamed diagonally through the gap, shining on Lin Tian’s grateful face. Meanwhile, the man on the side, holding a slender-thin sword in his hand, showed a shocked face upon seeing Lin Tian avoid his slash.
It should be known that the slash that Lin Tian just survived just now was not powerful but was extremely lethal. Its main advantage is that it is fast. It is incomparably fast. But it was actually avoided by this kid.
Looking at the ‘Death Orb’ that was cut in half on the ground, Lin Tian showed a smile on his face. At that moment, he realized he still has the upper hand. He saw a trace of blood on the ground but he was not injured, so this blood was definitely not his. It can only belong to the man.
The man did not conceal what he was doing. He took out a piece of white cloth, wiped the blood on his back, folded the white cloth back, and put it in his pocket.
“I didn’t expect that you, a little kid, to actually be a skilled Marine. You mastered the Six Marine Styles and also have a Devil Fruit ability… This is amazing. Unfortunately, this kid is a Marine scum. He actually did that kind of thing. Today, I will help the Marine clean up some Marine scum.”
“Hey, hey…” Lin Tian said quickly, “What do you mean by Marine scum? What did I do?”
Lin Tian didn’t want to be wronged so plainly and be beaten by others for no reason.
Seeing that the kid didn’t want to admit it until he died, the man shouted angrily, “Kid, I see that you take everything lightly! If you still want to quibble, it seems that I can only send you to hell.”
“Wait a moment, wait a moment!” Lin Tian seemed to understand something and said hurriedly.
It is a pity that the man was already angry. How could he listen to Lin Tian’s words? He attacked with a rapier in his hand this time.
Seeing that the man didn’t listen, Lin Tian could only resist. But only with a pair of bare fists, how could he survive the man’s superb sword technique?
Another powerful slash and another building was cut in half.
Lin Tian dodged sideways. If he was too late, he would have been finished.
At this moment, the man attack with an illusion. His sword was glowing with a cold light and pierced at Lin Tian from an extremely tricky angle.
The man waited for a long time for this opportunity. Although Lin Tian realized that this attack was coming, Lin Tian did not have enough space and time to avoid this move. Moreover, this trick was obviously intended to kill Lin Tian.
A long black sword appeared in Lin Tian’s hands instantly. Lin Tian hurriedly swung the sword to block the man’s ultimate move.
Realizing his trick didn’t work, the man instantly changed his trick. The long sword flipped and a horizontal strike struck Lin Tian’s space sword. Immediately, a powerful force passed through the sword blade to Lin Tian’s hand. The tiger’s mouth burst. Even the sword almost fell from his hand.
After taking dozens of steps back, Lin Tian dispersed the power.
Lin Tian felt horrified for a moment. He had been fighting for several years and his pure strength was extremely high. Especially since he often fights with pure-strength masters like the smelly old man. He had accumulated a lot of experience and had created a set of fighting methods that suits him.
‘How could this man have such a strong power?’
The man said, “Kid, I won’t play with you anymore.”
Before his words finished, the man disappeared from Lin Tian’s eyes. When the man appeared, he was already in the sky above Lin Tian.
A sword struck him.
‘How is it possible? How could this man achieve such an insane speed? If he was so fast, I should have been defeated a long time ago.’
‘Could it be that this man suppressed his strength when fought me?‘
Lin Tian couldn’t believe it.
Facing the man’s sword dropping from the sky, Lin Tian didn’t think he could resist it.
Just when Lin Tian wanted to use ‘Shave’ to evade, suddenly, an extremely powerful force pressed down on him from above. Lin Tian could not put up the slightest resistance and was pressed on the ground, unable to move.
Looking at the sword that was getting closer and closer in the sky, memories flashed through Lin Tian’s head.
‘Is this the feeling of death?’
‘It seems like I will experience it again… This feeling is really unpleasant.’
