Chapter 81: Psychic Martial Arts

Translator: Ea


“Commander Hu, please let me explain…” Zhang Tao felt like he was about to cry.

Gu Nan and Hu Wei were both masters he couldn’t afford to provoke. They even refused to listen to any advice of his and just had to make things difficult to de-escalate…

Hu Wei ignored him and cast her gaze directly toward Gu Nan. “Who are you? What right do you have to make decisions for the martial arts hall?”

Before Gu Nan could speak, Hu Daobin beside her stood up and spoke mockingly, “Elder Sister, this is the younger brother Miss Gu just acknowledged. He’s really impressive!”

Hu Wei’s cold expression didn’t change, even when she heard that. “Gu Nian? Hmph! She’s so busy holding the Martial Arts Competition that she doesn’t even have time to control her younger brother.”

Ever since Gu Nian advanced to Prodigious, all of the capital’s high level officials would call her “Eldest Miss.”

Hu Wei dared to call her by name. No matter whether she was Gu Nian’s enemy or friend, her identity definitely wasn’t simple.

But what did this have to do with Gu Nan? He just smiled and looked at this pair of siblings like he was looking at two fools, then turned to Zhang Tao.

“When did Hu Daobin’s name appear on the list?”

Zhang Tao didn’t understand why he asked this, but he subconsciously answered, “It was yesterday.”

Seeing Gu Nan nodding, Zhang Tao hurriedly came to his ear and said, “Young Master Nan, not only is Hu Wei a military genius, but she also became a commander at the age of 28, and her teacher is called the Spiritual Elder, Heavenly Enterprise Star’s[1] Lu Yiming—Elder Lu.”

“There is a rumor that…” Zhang Tao glanced at Gu Nan and decided to continue, “she can already fight against ordinary Prodigious cultivators.”

“Lu Yiming?” Gu Nan frowned slightly. He felt that the name sounded vaguely familiar, but he couldn’t remember where he had heard it for the time being.

Hu Wei’s expression changed. She pointed to Gu Nan and scolded, “Is Master’s esteemed name something that someone like you can…”

Bam!

Gu Nan waved his hand, and a dark shadow passed by, immediately swatting Hu Wei away. She smashed into the wall and embedded a human shaped groove in the wall.

“Be quiet.” Gu Nan pursed his lips and thought for a while. Finally he remembered who Lu Yiming was.

“So he’s Lu Zhanyu’s grandpa…”

Ever since the mission to protect the White Dew Goddess, Gu Nan especially investigated Lu Zhanyu. There was no mention of her being a reincarnator, but there was a lot of public information.

For example, she came from the famous spiritual martial arts family in Heavenly Enterprise Star. Her grandfather, Lu Yiming, was a first-rate Prodigious Realm Domain Stage powerhouse.

‘A Domain Stage master who specializes in mental attacks is still a little troublesome.’

While Gu Nan was thinking, the people around him were stupefied. Although they knew that this Young Master Nan was in the Prodigious Realm… his opponent was Hu Wei!

Even though she hadn’t broken through to Prodigious yet, many people felt that it was only a matter of time.

After all, she was over half a generation older than Gu Nian and the others. If she didn’t accept the Spiritual Elder as her teacher later in life and rebuild her martial arts path from scratch, then she might’ve stepped into Prodigious Realm even earlier than Gu Nian.

Let alone her own strength, just looking at her status alone… She had both the military and the Lu family behind her. Who would dare to attack her?

But Gu Nan did attack, and he even attacked so efficiently.

Zhang Tao was just thinking about what to say when suddenly, he felt a burst of suppression in his heart, as if he had been caught by some force. Something in his body seemed like it was about to leave.

Not only Zhang Tao, but everyone present, without exception, was completely controlled by this force.

Lu Wu’s formerly expressionless face looked grave; Bai Luoluo and Lu Danze’s cheeks were bright red, as if someone had covered their mouth and nose, and they couldn’t breathe.

Zhang Tao was a knowledgeable person, and he understood the situation at once.

“Is this… innate ability?!”

Only an innate ability would have such a terrifying might… He saw Hu Wei walk forward step by step. There was endless fury in her eyes, but strangely, she looked very calm and had no superfluous expression on her face.

In the midst of this suppression, Gu Nan stood up like it was none of his business.

“Comprehending an innate ability while still at Innate Realm? Not bad.” He looked at Hu Wei and casually assessed, “But this isn’t the law of the mind. At most, it’s just psychokinesis.”

Hu Wei raised her eyebrow and said in a deep voice, “It’s enough to deal with you!”

As soon as her voice fell, everyone felt the pressure suppressing them disappear, but no one thought it was because Hu Wei stopped attacking. There was only one possibility—all the pressure was now concentrated on Gu Nan!

Invisible to the naked eye, a heavy hammer that had quietly formed was slamming down towards Gu Nan.

Hu Wei was already sneering in her heart. ‘So what if you’re Prodigious Realm? With the secret techniques my teacher taught me, ordinary Prodigious Realm cultivators might not necessarily… Huh?

Gu Nan didn’t even lift his hand. The shadows under his feet rose up and directly smashed into the heavy hammer, completely engulfing the latter in an instant.

Gu Nan knew too well how to deal with psychic weapons. These attacks that possessed dual physical and law attributes might sound pretty on paper, but in reality, when faced with higher and purer laws, psychic weapons were as fragile as a piece of paper.

“My turn.”

These two short words were pulled out into several notes in Hu Wei’s ears. Her face suddenly changed color… ‘This is the effect of his speed approaching the speed of sound!’

Sure enough, Gu Nan’s fist arrived at the same time that she heard his words.

Bang!

A muffled sound came out. Although Hu Wei was beaten back three steps, she wasn’t hurt. She immediately sneered, “It’s useless. If the psychic shield can be broken with brute force, then…”

Bang! Bang! Bang!

Gu Nan didn’t stop; he threw dozens of punches in quick succession, and his speed became faster and faster. He attacked until Hu Wei found it hard to defend anymore. She had to kneel on one knee to hold him off with difficulty.

Although the shield could still hold out for a while longer, the powerful shocks alone gave her the urge to spit blood while also feeling bewildered.

‘Where the hell did this rascal come from? Since when did Ruby Fish Star have someone like this?’

“It’s just a psychic turtle shell. I’m much more familiar with it than you.” Gu Nan had punched to his heart’s content and finally stopped. “High energy consumption, difficult to control, and low resistance to laws… It has many weaknesses.”

At this time, veins were visible on Hu Wei’s forehead, and all her strength was used to maintain the shield. She couldn’t say a word.

Seeing Gu Nan stop, Zhang Tao hurriedly went forward to hold Hu Wei up and asked with concern, “Commander Hu, are you okay?”

“I, I… ugh!” Hu Wei wanted to say “I’m okay.” Unfortunately, after trying to talk for a while, she finally spat out some blood.

Hu Daobin watched this from the side with dazed eyes. Right now, he finally reacted and cried bitterly while hugging Hu Wei’s arm. “Sister, sister! Nothing must happen to you, sister, or else what would I do…?”

At this time, the door was pushed open again, and a figure rushed in, panting as she said, “Hu Wei, it’s all Long Yi’s scheme. Gu Nan is not a bad person, don’t… er…”

Halfway through the sentence, the visitor saw the scene inside the room.

Hu Wei was vomiting blood while someone supported her. Gu Nan, on the other hand, stood aside with a smile.

He looked at the newcomer. “Lu Xinyu? What good timing.”

“You…” Lu Xinyu didn’t know what to say for a while. She could only walk to Hu Wei first and heal her injury a little.

After a long time, she sighed in relief. “Fortunately, the internal organs weren’t displaced. It’s just a little bleeding.”

She helped the pale Hu Wei sit down.

Hu Daobin, who was crying on the other side, quickly stood up and said, “Sister Xinyu, you have to avenge my sister!”

“Him, it was him!” Hu Daobin pointed to Gu Nan and complained to Lu Xinyu, “He was the one who hurt my sister. Sister Xinyu, call those uncles from last time and break his legs!”

As soon as his voice fell, Hu Wei’s expression had already changed. She coughed up blood while saying with difficulty, “You… shut up!”

Unfortunately, it was too late.

Hu Daobin turned his head in amazement, but saw that Gu Nan was now in front of him. The shadow that darkened his vision made him panic.

“My sister is… How dare you…”

Crack!

Gu Nan suddenly raised his foot and kicked Hu Daobin in the knee, which directly twisted and fractured his right leg. A shrill scream was ripped from his mouth.

Lu Xinyu looked at Gu Nan with a complicated gaze.
