Chapter 393: The Essence of Shadow Fist (Part Two)
Xu Cheng panted as he ran after him and replied, “Without Shadow Fist, I can show you some other tricks of mine!”
Then, from his gloves came out two sharp blades. Like an assassin, he dashed right in front of Satan, but the latter immediately swung his cloak forward, interfering with Xu Cheng’s vision. When Xu Cheng cut through the black cloak with his blades, he already lost track of Satan.
He was able to immediately lock onto a palm strike coming from his back, but it was already too late when he tried to dodge. After getting hit in the back, Xu Cheng flew forward and slid against the grass for over 30 meters, bringing up the grass and dirt with him.
Satan sneered. “Do you want to know what’s the realm of the true Shadow Fist? Back then, the biggest difference between us was that he understood the essence of Shadow Fist, and the essence is, like-real-like-fake!”
Xu Cheng immediately got back up and tightened his mask, not letting it fall down.
Seeing this gesture, Satan sneered. “You are trying so hard to keep it on, but you don’t deserve it at all! Its birth is in fact very closely-related to Shadow Fist, only when one’s Shadow Fist technique has entered the realm of real and fake coexisting would they deserve the title of being the Joker! But you, you are just garbage, your understanding of Shadow Fist is even worse than mine back then! I wasn’t qualified to be the Dragon King back then, and you are even more so!”
“What’s real and what’s fake? You can trick my eyes but not my heart!” Xu Cheng said as he tore off a corner of his cloak and covered his eyes. “Everyone, including you, can’t trick their heart! You have always been deceiving yourself. In fact, you have a stronger inferiority complex than anyone and you are scared of being denied by people! Your junior sister didn’t love you, and the Dragon Division kicked you out; all of this was out of your control, and that’s why you made yourself to be so complicated when in fact, you are very simple.”
When he blindfolded his eyes, the whole world became quiet. It was pitch black, but it was as if there was also light.
It felt almost like back when he was at the 8th Military Region, shooting targets with a blindfold on but with full ultrasound coverage activated.
Why did Xu Cheng cover his eyes? It was because he realized from what Satan said that all he did was create illusions and mix real attacks within. If you were to use your eyes to fight, you would only be tricked by the illusions. If that was the case, you might as well close your eyes and forget about the illusions. Then, you will realize that Satan, in fact, was just there and didn’t do anything. He just tricked the eyes of the world, and that was all!

This was the same principle Zhang Chenfeng used to test Xu Cheng. After showing him Shadow Fist, he would always ask, “How much did you remember?” (read on noodletowntranslated dot com to support the actual translators)
Why did Xu Cheng say at last, “I forgot them all.”
It was because, at that time, the old man already told Xu Cheng the essence of Shadow Fist. In fact, the old man didn’t practice any fist techniques, he just created a visual fantasy! (read on noodletowntranslated dot com to support the actual translators)
