Cheeky Sword God - Chapter 3
He closed his eyes and began to concentrate, then the scene of Zhou Boyan performing her sword technique was replayed in Wu Chi’s mind like a glimmer of light.
Zhou Boyan looked at Wu Chi coldly, she had already planned to silence him. As soon as Wu Chi’s lies were revealed, she would kill him immediately. Even if it was not easy to kill him directly, she would cripple his cultivation and send him back to the Iron Sword Group.
Just as Zhou Boyan was thinking how to deal with him, Wu Chi suddenly moved.
The sword light rose up and flew like a thunder!
Looking at the first move, Zhou Boyan’s eyes, which were initially filled with suspicion, were replaced by shock.
The Shadow Sword Technique!
Whether it was the sword strokes or the footwork, it was almost identical to her own, even the sword’s intent was somewhat similar.
As the sword technique had gradually unfolded, the initial unfamiliar feeling had also disappeared, and the sword flowed flawlessly, as if every move had been honed and perfected through countless times.
Unlike Zhou Boyan, this sword technique in Wu Chi’s hands was less gorgeous, but more profound than her version.
Wu Chi, who had replicated the sword technique from his memory, looked at Zhou Boyan and said, “My knowledge on this sword technique is limited. So, Miss Zhou, do you think what I said earlier is true?”
“Have you met my father before?” At this moment, Zhou Boyan became absentminded.
“Ah, how could it be?” Wu Chi was also shocked and quickly denied, “A great person like your father? How could I possibly have met him? This sword technique was just something I had learned by accident.”
“No?” After a while, Zhou Boyan gradually came back to her senses. Wu Chi was just an ordinary disciple of Iron Sword Group, he had no chance to meet her father, let alone learn the Shadow Sword Technique from him.
However, if he had not met my father, how could this brat know this sword technique?
“Now that I have been proven innocent, I’ll take my leave now. Miss Zhou, see you later.” Wu Chi didn’t know why, but he had a bad premonition that something bad would happen to him if he had stayed longer, so he tried to slip away.
After successfully shaking off Zhou Boyan, Wu Chi was stopped by her again.
The Shadow Sword Technique was the secret of the Shadow Sword Villa, and it was related to the inheritance of the Shadow. How could she let Wu Chi go before she knew what was going on.
“Miss Zhou, we had a deal that if I can show you this sword technique, you will let me go. Do you want to go back on your own words now?” Wu Chi’s face changed upon being stopped.
“Mister Wu, please tell me, where have you learned this sword technique?” Zhou Boyan looked at Wu Chi, and asked earnestly.
“I really can’t remember.” Wu Chi was determined not to tell the truth even though he was being pressured. At the same time, he also felt guilty in his heart.
“This damned girl. I learned the sword technique from you, but I won’t tell you the truth no matter what.”
Zhou Boyan stared at Wu Chi’s eyes tightly and asked quietly, “Mister Wu, do you know what this sword technique is?”
“I can’t remember it. I have learned a lot of sword techniques before, how can I remember every single one clearly?”
It seemed that Zhou Boyan had expected Wu Chi’s reply, so she explained carefully, “This sword technique you’ve just shown is the Shadow Sword Technique, one of the requirements to gain the Shadow’s recognition, and a secret of the Shadow Sword Villa.”
“So Mr. Wu, still don’t remember where you learned this sword technique?”
Wu Chi was shocked when he heard her words.
He thought he had tricked her, but he didn’t expect to dig a grave for himself.
Regarding the Shadow, Wu Chi understood its importance to the Shadow Sword Villa, so this was not a casual matter at all. If this matter was not properly explained, the consequences would be much more serious than peeping at Zhou Boyan’s sword practice.
“Is this sword technique really the Shadow Sword Technique?” Wu Chi was still in disbelief, and then asked, “Miss Zhou, you are not joking with me, right?”
Zhou Boyan looked at Wu Chi with a slight frown and asked, “Do you think I would get anything in return for lying to you?”
“But this sword technique is totally messy, how can it possibly be the Shadow Sword Technique?”
The Shadow was renowned all over the world, and Zhou Yuanting got his prestigious reputation from the help of the Shadow. How could the Shadow Sword Technique be so sloppy?
“My father once said that the essence of the Shadow Sword Technique was not the sword moves, but the intent of the sword! It’s a pity that I can’t understand it yet.”
Shaking her head, Zhou Boyan asked again, “Mr. Wu, you haven’t answered me yet. Where did you learn this sword technique?”
Wu Chi felt like he was going crazy, thinking of the silver coins in his sleeve, he could not help but wanted to cut off his own hands for his own greed.
“Mister Wu!” Zhou Boyan’s voice became more and more chilly, “I’ve asked you honestly, yet you still refuse to tell me the truth?”
“I’m really just passing by” He was forced to such a point that he wanted to cry but his tears won’t come out.
Sensing Zhou Boyan’s gaze, Wu Chi finally resorted to honesty.
“Miss Zhou, I learned this sword technique from watching you perform it before. This is the only sword technique I know.”
After a pause, Wu Chi hastily added, “…but I really didn’t mean to peek at you. I only thought that your sword dance was beautiful, so I couldn’t help take a little peek.”
“Was my sword dance that great?” Zhou Boyan resisted the impulse to slap this brat to death, she took a deep breath to calm herself down.
Even if she didn’t have a full understanding of all the sword moves of the Shadow Sword Technique, she at least had some understanding of the sword technique.
How could this technique look like a sword dance in his eyes?
Of course, she had a strong feeling that Wu Chi was telling the truth this time. But it was just because of the truth that it hurt her much more.
But that was not the point.
“Wait a minute… you said you have learned the sword technique after you saw me perform it once?”
“Yes.” Wu Chi helplessly nodded and answered honestly.
“That’s impossible!” Zhou Boyan sneered, “Even if I had merely scratched the surface of this technique, this sword technique is still extremely profound. How can you learn it at the first sight?”
Wu Chi shrugged his shoulders and replied, “That’s the way it is. If you don’t believe me, I can’t do anything to change your mind.”
“I have been practicing the sword technique for half a year, yet I’m still unfamiliar with the technique, how could you perfectly copy my sword technique from just one glance? If what you’re saying is true, then you’re a sword genius I’ve never seen in a hundred years.” Thinking of her hard work in practicing the sword technique, Zhou Boyan became more and more disbelieving at Wu Chi’s words and could not help but sneer at him.
“How can I make you believe me?” Initially, Wu Chi wanted to ridicule Zhou Boyan for being foolish, but he forcefully resisted the impulse, and he unwillingly asked back.
“According to your words, no matter what kind of sword technique I use, you can learn it from just one glance?”
After thinking about it, Wu Chi replied honestly, “Yes, I should be able to learn most of it.”
Wu Chi was extremely confident about this ability of his, because no matter what kind of sword technique his master or brother taught him, Wu Chi could always easily learn it, which was why he was placed with high expectations. Unfortunately, he had been lazy and didn’t care about his talents going to waste at all.
“Good! In that case, I’ll perform another sword technique. If you can mimic the sword technique, I’ll believe your words.”
“If I can still perform the sword technique, can you let me go?” Wu Chi asked cautiously after being deceived last time.
Zhou Boyan sneered discontentedly, “Do you really think you can do it?”
“It’s my business whether I can do it or not.” Wu Chi did not hesitate to retort, “I only asked you, if I can do it, will you put this matter to an end and let me go?”
“Yes, if you really do have such talent! Not only will I let you go, but I will also personally apologize to you.”
Glancing at Wu Chi, Zhou Boyan confidently said, “But what if you can’t do it?”
“Still going on with that, if I can’t perform the sword technique, you can handle me however you want!” Once again confirming Zhou Boyan’s intentions, Wu Chi immediately breathed a sigh of relief and confidently answered.
After taking a deep look at Wu Chi, Zhou Boyan did not say anything more. Her figure moved slightly and her sword light appeared.
Her slender fingers grasped the hilt, she adjusted her feet and took a stance. Taking a step forward, then a step back, she swayed to the left then to the right, skipped and twirled… so graceful and lithe were her movements like a butterfly dancing on a flower.
This time, Zhou Boyan wanted to intentionally embarrass him, so what she showed this time was a sword technique suitable to only women.
In fact, this sword technique had no power at all, it was simply just a sword dance, created purely for her, for her own entertainment. In the entire world, she was the only one who could perform it. So there was no need to worry that Wu Chi had learned it from other places.
It was true that the sword dance was really beautiful and graceful.
The combination of a beautiful person performing the sword dance made people unconsciously relax their body and enjoy the sight.
If Wu Chi had watched Zhou Boyan performing such sword dance under normal circumstances, he would be very happy, but his face, at this time, was getting uglier and uglier…
At the end of the sword dance, her sword came back to its sheath, and at the same time, Zhou Boyan’s head fell back to Wu Chi.
“So Mister Wu, will you please perform the sword dance?”
“This does not count!”
While gritting his teeth, Wu Chi looked at Zhou Boyan and angrily defended himself.
“This is a sword dance, not a sword technique!”
“Who said that a sword dance does not fall under the category of a sword technique?” Happily humming, Zhou Boyan answered, “Didn’t Mister Wu also say that the sword dance I showed before was beautiful?”
Women were indeed vengeful!
Wu Chi had really understood the true meaning of this sentence. How petty was she that she intentionally created these difficulties for him just because of what he said?
“You are a petty woman! I am a man, how can I perform this sword dance? No, you need to change to a different sword technique.”
He couldn’t help but become angry and questioned her.
“I am a petty woman?” Hearing him, Zhou Boyan’s face became uglier, “Yes, I am petty, so what?”
“You have to show me this sword technique, if you cannot perform it, I’ll go to tell your senior brother that you had secretly learned the Shadow Sword Technique and plotted to steal the divine sword.”
A petty woman!
Wu Chi was angry, but he was pinched at his waist and could not refute.
Wu Chi finally realized that not only this was this woman mean, she was also very petty.
What a pain!
