Chapter 341: Shevchenko’s Secret (Part Two)
An invisible aura appeared, and it felt like invisible flames were burning.
Fei frowned. He sensed an undescribed change as soon as Shevchenko held onto the sword.
It felt like the person in front of him changed.
The change from the humble to the frenzied only took a second. After that, a loud angry roar that could break the eardrums of people sounded. Red flames suddenly appeared on the black sword as it chopped down at Fei like a meteor.
Fei instantly summoned his metal gloves that had back hooks on them and smashed onto the blade of the sword.
The two forces collided with each other, and a loud booming noise sounded with the appearance of bright sparks. The faces of the 20 royal mages around the stage paled as they quickly cast Deafen Spells on themselves. The audience members who sat very close to the stage weren’t lucky as blood floated out of their ears.
Fei sensed a numbness in his arm as a fire energy dashed into his arm through the metal gloves, and the repulsive force made him take a step back.
Shevchenko, on the other hand, backed off five steps. He propped his black sword behind his back to help him alleviate some of the force, and that created a series of sparks before he was finally able to stabilize his body.
“Huge force! This prince is gifted with this huge physical strength by the gods!” Fei understood it.
It seemed like Shevchenko changed into another person when the shield and the sword got into his hands. The dominating, suicidal, and tragic aura that was recorded in the Divy Crystal finally came back to him.
“Rotate Drag Chop!!”
As Shevchenko shouted, the huge black sword turned into a tornado. With the help of the momentum of the sword, he dashed into the air. As a cloud of grey energy surrounded him, his blade struck at Fei like a storm.
Tink! Tink! Tink!
A series of loud booming noise sounded. The huge impact energy waves rippled in the air, and the sparks were like the fireworks at the night.
In this brief moment, the fist and the sword had at least collided 100 times.
Afterward, Fei and Shevchenko separated themselves.
Fei backed off three steps.
Shevchenko backed off eight steps.
Although Shevchenko breathed heavily and looked a little unstable, the powerful aura around him got stronger and stronger. Like a crazy beast, he instantly jumped back at Fei at an even faster speed as soon as he stabilized his body.
With craze, the black sword chopped horizontally down and drew a single line in the air. Although it was simple, it contained a lot of energy; it felt like it was going to chop the earth in half.
Fei hadn’t had an opponent that could take him straight on using pure physical strength. Although he didn’t need to unleash all of his power, this upfront, direct, aggressive battle made him feel very energetic. Without dodging, he moved up and directly struck at the blade of the sword using both of his fists.
In the last few days, Fei’s strength had been increasing rapidly and steadily. After killing a lot of monsters last night, his Barbarian Character was now level 80; it was equivalent to mid-tier Nine-Star already. Since he was far stronger than Shevchenko, he had no trouble taking on the strike; only his palms felt a little numb afterward.
Shevchenko who was in a frenzied state continued to shout. His eyes were all red, and the veins on his hand that was holding the sword had bulged up like the roots of a tree; it was clear that he was using all of his strength.
However, he couldn’t pull back the sword that was in between Fei’s fists.
Fei lightly shook his head.
After he battled with Shevchenko, he felt like [One Sword]’s defeat had more to it. Although Shevchenko was able to threaten that sword genius with his strength, it was almost impossible for him to defeat [One Sword]. Too bad that [One Sword] greatly underperformed in the semi-final and got slowly tilted by Shevchenko.
Why did [One Sword] underperform? That was a mystery!
Right now, Fei discovered another secret about Shevchenko.
When Shevchenko got into battle, he would enter a frenzied state; it was similar to the multiple personality theory in Fei’s previous life – a person would instantly take on another personality when he or she encountered some people or some things.
As for Shevchenko, he was a bright and likable guy under normal circumstances, but he would enter the frenzied state when he grabbed onto the wooden shield and the black sword.
In this state, Shevchenko would be as consistent as a robot, and he would get stronger as the battle got longer.
Fei shook his fists, and his Nine-Star strength was quickly unleashed then restrained.
Under this insane amount of force, the black sword flew out of Shevchenko’s hand as if it was hit by lightning, and the thick body of the sword buzzed as it vibrated rapidly in the air.
When it fell back down and smashed onto the stage, the entire stage shook violently as if a mountain fell on it.
All the people in the audience gasped in surprise.
What happened next proved Fei’s theory. Without the black sword in his hand, the terrifying red flames in Shevchenko’s eyes disappeared, and his expression turned from frenzied to confused to bright. The bright and likable guy returned!
