The hard, hoarse voice, even if it was a low, mosquito-like chant, was like a thunderclap in a clear sky at this moment.
Huo Zhenxiao’s mind buzzed, and his ancient, unruffled expression finally changed dramatically at this moment.
Shocked, appalled, even his eyes widened to the limit in an instant.
In the midst of his tumultuous thoughts, Huo Zhenxiao even blurted out, “Impossible!”
But the moment the words left his mouth.
Chen Dong’s hands and feet, which had stopped at the ninth ending movement, suddenly turned.
This turn was fluid, without any stagnation.
Even though the movement of the body was more obviously difficult and laborious after the change of movement.
But it was …… the tenth movement!
It is like a turtle crawling, slowly moving and changing.
If the previous movement was an inch-by-inch change, then now …… is a minute-by-minute change.
It was so slow that it was even as if the time in this practice room was being artificially slowed down.
The actual fact is that the actual time in the room is artificially slowed down.
He even felt his throat tighten and he was suffocating a little.
As for Chen Dong, at this moment, as the movements changed.
He was even trembling and sweating like a waterfall.
His face all turned pale and his whole body was in an extremely wretched state.
Only one pair of eyes was as determined as the white moon in the dark night, unusually bright.
“It can be done, it can be carried on ……”
Chen Dong clenched his teeth as he kept admonishing himself in his heart.
This was the result of his fifteen days of training without the slightest bit of slackness, wearing the stars and the moon.
Not only was it Huo Zhenxiao’s test for him, it was also his test for himself!
Soreness and numbness kept coming from his hands and feet, a feeling as if a million ants were biting them.
It was even more as if it could penetrate through the flesh and bite directly into the nerves.
When the tenth movement progressed to the late stage, Chen Dong even looked painful.
The ultimate heaviness!
All over his body, even an inch of skin seemed to be as heavy as a thousand pounds at this moment.
His hands and feet even seemed to be pressed down by a great mountain, as if they were trying to forcibly terminate his movements.
Looking at the painful Chen Dong.
Huo Zhenxiao finally came back from his shock, and his sweaty fists finally loosened at this moment.
But after releasing them, he clenched his fists again.
Before, it was because of shock.
But now, it was because he was silently cheering for Chen Dong.
Chen Dong’s tenth move was gradually coming to an end.
A look of joy and excitement appeared on Huo Zhenxiao’s face, and his eyes were even shining.
If this look was seen by the 300,000 Great Snow Dragon Riders, it would definitely shock the 300,000 Great Snow Dragon Riders and make their jaws drop to the ground.
Because in front of the 300,000 Great Snow Dragon Riders, Huo Zhenxiao had always displayed a domineering, cold and stern look, as if he was a king standing on top of the sky, looking down on all beings.
But at this moment, Huo Zhenxiao’s expression had changed, as if a god had fallen to earth!
Such a look had never been seen even back when one man, one spear and one horse had destroyed a city, when his mighty fame had crushed the hundred tribes of the Northern Region!
Just as Huo Zhenxiao was elated and excited.
Chen Dong’s tenth move finally ended.
But not waiting for Huo Zhenxiao to breathe a sigh of relief, Chen Dong’s movements suddenly …… changed once again!
This change scared Huo Zhenxiao’s five senses nearly twisted.
A cry of alarm echoed through the practice room.
But it was still too late.
Chen Dong’s movements violently switched to the eleventh movement.
The change was sudden!
The moment the movement switched, Chen Dong instantly felt as if his internal organs had been viciously smashed by a heavy hammer, and a mouthful of fresh blood directly spurted out.
With that, Chen Dong’s body shook violently and instantly his qi was gone, directly collapsing to the ground.
A sudden scene.
Not only was Huo Zhenxiao confused.
Even Chen Dong himself was confused.
Sitting paralyzed on the ground, blood remained at the corners of his mouth, and there was even the smell of blood in his nasal cavity.
The excruciating pain that swept through his limbs and bones caused Chen Dong’s body to twitch and tremble even as his Qi was exhausted and he fell limp on the ground.
It was not a forbidden trembling of the muscles, but a trembling from the inside out, right down to the epidermis.
But Chen Dong could never have imagined that a mere change of movement would bring such a great shock!
In just a moment, the pressure he was under was almost more than the sum of the tenth, ninth and eighth movements!
It was as if a great hell was suppressing him and the ocean was overturning, devastatingly crushing him in an instant!
“You’re too impulsive!”
Huo Zhenxiao’s face turned a little pale as he gritted his teeth and indignantly chided, “Your body’s endurance clearly stopped at the tenth move, so why did you have to forcefully switch to the eleventh move?”
With his strength and knowledge of this set of moves, the weakness Chen Dong’s body showed just now when he reached the tenth move was completely at its limit!
The eleventh move was simply Chen Dong trying to force his way past the limit!
“I, only, have, three, months ……”
Chen Dong did not raise his head, lowering his head and facing the ground, his lips and teeth seemed to be using all their strength as he let out a hoarse, low voice.
Huo Zhenxiao was stunned.
Then he got chagrined, “Blame me, blame me too! I didn’t instruct you when I taught you this set of movements, every tenth set of movements is a group, when switching to the second set of movements, the pressure and wear and tear on the body will be sky high, I, I really didn’t expect ……”
At this point, Huo Zhenxiao suddenly paused.
He actually wanted to say that he really didn’t expect Chen Dong to practice up to the tenth movement in just fifteen days, and even more so, he didn’t expect that Chen Dong would simply and decisively switch to the eleventh movement in a split second just now!
The reason why he stopped was because he had reacted to the fact that the wood was already in the boat, so it was useless to say more.
And the anger and chagrin just now, for him, Huo Zhenxiao, was obviously out of control and out of shape!
Huo Zhenxiao frowned profoundly and looked at Chen Dong: “You still have three months to go, there is no need to rush at all, this set of movements, even if you can’t perform them all in three months and integrate them, but going forward, you still have time, a long, long time.”
“I, want, to, quickly, become, stronger ……”
Chen Dong’s body trembled, still keeping his head down, at this moment, because he had just forcibly switched to the eleventh movement, his body, both inside and outside, was suffering from an indescribably huge oppression.
“You’re too eager! You’re so desperate to get it done in one go, don’t you want to use less time than three months to completely practise the moves?”
Huo Zhenxiao’s heart was filled with depressed anger and he scolded Chen Dong with some annoyance.
He had seen too many geniuses, and there was never a lack of geniuses in the Great Snow Dragon Rider Army.
But this was the first time he had seen such a reckless and adventurous madman!
He had no regard for life!
In his opinion, this was a fool’s errand!
There are times when being too aggressive is more likely to lead to death!
Chen Dong’s response completely infuriated Huo Zhenxiao.
At this moment, raging anger, as if it was a lava eruption, went straight to the top of Huo Zhenxiao’s mind.
A madman who doesn’t know what he’s doing!
But he did not wait for him to utter an angry rebuke.
A crisp sound was suddenly heard on Chen Dong’s neck.
Huo Zhenxiao was horrified, and the words that were coming out of his mouth were stuck in his throat.
Chen Dong slowly raised his head, and with every inch of difficult movement, a chilling “click” sound was emitted, as if his head was on top of a huge mountain, and he was hard pressed up against it by his neck, which was clearly overwhelmed by the sound it was making.
When Chen Dong raised his head with difficulty and pain, he faced Huo Zhenxiao.
Chen Dong’s face was trembling and the corners of his mouth slowly turned upwards, but blood was gushing out from his mouth.
At this moment, Chen Dong’s eyes were as brilliant as starlight.
With all his might, out of his blood-filled mouth, he let out a voice: “She, who is waiting for me, is coming home.”
This smile is soft and poignant.
The words, firm and unmistakable, were resounding.
Huo Zhenxiao froze, facing Chen Dong, and felt his heart plummet to the breaking point.
He asked, somewhat bewildered, “For the sake of a woman, you would not even give up your life? Just to go back to see her earlier?”
Chen Dong’s body trembled more and more, but the blood in his mouth could not stop flowing out, the smile on his face became more and more tender, but his eyes were full of determination: “Than, life, weighs ……”
A mouthful of fresh blood, directly from Chen Dong’s mouth spurted out.
With a poof, Chen Dong’s two eyes closed and he fell to the ground.
Huo Zhenxiao was startled and hurriedly went forward to check.
Only after making sure that Chen Dong had only fainted did he let out a sigh of relief.
Immediately afterwards, anger suddenly appeared on Huo Zhenxiao’s face.
With a snap, he gently slapped Chen Dong on the back and chided, “Is it really worth it for a woman?”
The quiet practice room.
This question from Huo Zhenxiao echoed.
Chen Dong, who had fainted, was unable to respond.
What had just happened was already the best response.
Huo Zhenxiao sat on the ground, right next to Chen Dong, his gaze dazed and lost in thought.
A long time later.
Only then did Huo Zhenxiao exhale a breath of turbid air and laughed softly, “The wave after the Yangtze River pushes the wave before it. I originally thought that with your fifteen days of hard work, you would at most be refined to the ninth move, just like me back then, but I never thought that you …… would have reached the tenth move and even risked your life for the sake of a woman eleventh movement.”
“It seems that Master’s choice, is not wrong, you …… deserve to be number one in the world!”
The biggest reason for the shocked loss of composure just now lay in this.
Even when Huo Zhenxiao had learned this set of moves from Chen Daojun back then, half a month of hard practice had eventually stopped at just the ninth move under Chen Daojun’s test.
And Chen Dong …… surpa*sed Huo Zhenxiao back then!
The difference of just one movement, the meaning contained in it, was something that made even Huo Zhenxiao’s heart and soul tremble, and it was difficult to calm down.
It is because of this understanding that Huo Zhenxiao knows better than anyone else how wide the gulf is in the difference of a single movement ……
Huo Zhenxiao did not leave, but always sat by Chen Dong’s side, always checking the condition of Chen Dong’s injuries.
Forcing a switch to the eleventh movement brings a lot of damage, and the slightest carelessness could even ripple through his life.
Even Huo Zhenxiao did not dare to be careless and could only quietly watch over him.
The other side.
Longjing Mountain Villa.
Gu Qingying jerked awake from her sleep.
In the darkness, she curled up in bed, shivering and breathing heavily.
The room light came on, but it was Meng who walked in.
“Miss Gu, what’s wrong?”
Granny Meng frowned at Gu Qingying.
At this moment, Gu Qingying, who was huddled on the bed, was pale and frightened, panting heavily, with dense sweat on her forehead staining her long green hair, looking downright wretched, making people look pitiful.
“Blood, blood ……”
Gu Qingying did not look up at Meng, but clutched her knees with both hands, her eyes fluttering in fear: “All blood, red, all red ……”
“Having a nightmare?”
Seeing that Gu Qingying was pitiful, Meng Nan stepped over to the bed and sat beside her, raising her hand to gently stroke the back of Gu Qingying’s head, “It’s okay, it’s just a nightmare.”
“No, it’s not just a nightmare.”
Gu Qingying suddenly raised her head and looked at Meng in panic and fear: “My husband, my Chen Dong, he’s lying in the blood, he’s smiling, he’s looking at me …… ooooooooooooo ……”
At the end of her sentence, Gu Qingying finally couldn’t contain it and broke down emotionally and cried out.
Meng was completely dumbfounded.
For a while now, Gu Qingying had seemed to her to be much smoother emotionally.
Eating well, sleeping well, everything was no different from normal.
This proved that her persuasion of Gu Qingying at the beginning had been effective.
However, she had never expected that just because of the dream of Nanke, Gu Qingying would break down and lose control to such an extent.
The sound of wailing and crying reverberated in the room.
Gu Qingying was crying with pearly tears, and her delicate body was trembling from fear.
What had happened in the dream was not the fear brought on by the fact that Chen Dong was in a pool of blood staring at her and laughing.
What really broke Gu Qingying’s fear was …… Chen Dong lying in a pool of blood!
The heartbreaking cries of pain were so painful that even Meng could not listen to them any longer.
When faced with Gu Qingying, her heart softened, she slowly leaned forward a bit, and smoothly swept Gu Qingying into her arms.
It was as if a mother was soothing her child.
Meng’s right hand gently rubbed Gu Qingying’s back and softly soothed her, “It’s alright, it’s all a dream, just a dream, dreams and reality are opposite, your husband must be safe, you don’t have to worry about him.”
“Good girl, don’t cry, it was just a dream, maybe …… your husband wouldn’t want to see you crying like that, would he?”
The last sentence suddenly tugged at Gu Qingying’s heartstrings.
Her delicate body trembled, and she was slowly pulling away from Meng’s arms.
Bai Xi’s slender jade hand quickly wiped the tears from the corners of her eyes, but stubbornly murmured, “Yes, he told me to smile more, he didn’t want me to cry, I ……”
But thinking about the image in the dream world.
Just as Gu Qingying wiped away the tears from the corners of her eyes, tears would once again come out, re-covering the areas that had been wiped away before.
The tears were like a fountain, and it was difficult to contain them at all.
Gu Qingying wanted to cry out, but her silver teeth clenched her lips, forcing herself to hold back her sobs.
She slowly turned her head towards the window, her teary eyes hazily looking at the stars and the white moon on the night outside the window, but gradually her gaze became firm.
“Be back, be safe and sound, I, I’m waiting for you ……”
This is the thought in Gu Qing Ying’s heart.
The practice room.
Chen Dong woke up with a jolt.
The sharp pain in his body had long since disappeared, but his body was still drenched in sweat.
He lay on the ground in a daze, staring blankly at the roof of the practice room, motionless.
The cold wind blew in, turning the sweat on his body into ice crystals and bringing an incomparably strong, biting chill.
But Chen Dong, remained as if he was unaware of it.
“Did you just have a nightmare?”
Huo Zhenxiao’s voice rang out in his ears.
Chen Dong’s eyes gradually regained focus and he raised his eyes to look at Huo Zhenxiao who was sitting cross-legged beside him, “How long have I been unconscious?”
Huo Zhenxiao’s face was somewhat gloomy as he said with a frown, “During the three days you were unconscious, you kept calling out a woman’s name, muddled and sweating profusely as soon as you called out that woman’s name, as if you had been immersed in the same nightmare.”
“Hm?” Chen Dong gave a light suspicion.
Huo Zhenxiao rubbed his chin and said with a smirk, “Ye Linglong.”
Chen Dong was instantly stunned.
Immediately afterwards, Huo Zhenxiao smiled spontaneously, “Just kidding, it’s still easy for me to grasp your previous information, you weren’t called Ye Linglong, you were called by your wife Gu Qingying’s name.”
Chen Dong’s expression eased.
Retracting his gaze, he looked at the roof of the practice room with renewed bewilderment.
A long time pa*sed.
Only then did Chen Dong open his mouth in doubt and ask, “Senior brother, do you believe in telepathy?”
