Chapter 239: You Have Recognized the Wrong Person!
Translator: Sparrow Translations Editor: Sparrow Translations
The Azure Clouds Grandmaster tested waters by asking, “My sect’s disciple, Murong Yanran, had some sort of misunderstanding with your disciple. I think it is just a squabble between youths and should not be taken seriously. What do you think?”
The Azure Clouds Grandmaster also knew that the way he asked was too straightforward, but he was too anxious at that point in time, thus he could only thicken his skin to ask.
“It seems like Murong Yanran’s abilities are limited and she is not as strong as Xiao Yan.” Lin Feng realized and smiled slightly. He opened his mouth and said, “Whether it can be taken seriously, it
is not up to me to say. It depends on parties involved.”
“However, it seems like my disciple has remembered the promise they made.” Lin Feng answered in a plain voice, but the content of his words made the Azure Clouds Grandmaster frightened.
“Xiao Yan is my most senior disciple. He has decided to come over to Xingyun Peak and I will support him fully in this decision.”
Lin Feng saw that the Azure Clouds Grandmaster was starting to break out in cold sweat and said quietly, “Please do not misunderstand, my friend. I will not interfere in the wager made between these two young juniors. My only purpose here is to visit the leader of the Sword of Radiance Sect.”
The Azure Clouds Grandmaster laughed, “That is naturally so.”
Although he wore a smile on his face, his heart was extremely bitter.
And although Lin Feng’s words were simple, there were hidden meanings within it that revealed his intentions.
The wager between the two young juniors would not be interfered by anyone.
In other words, if anyone else interfered in the matter between the two young juniors, he would not be merciful either.
Yes, the leader of the Sword of Radiance Sect contained immortality abilities, but in front of Lin
Feng, he had to follow the rules too. If he tried to renege on the promise, then he and Lin Feng could spar to determine whose mana was more powerful and whose abhijna was greater.
The Azure Clouds Grandmaster grew cowardly in his heart but did not dare to react in front of Lin Feng. He was extremely depressed.
Lin Feng’s mana placed him at the center of a boundary covering three hundred square miles that was cut off from the outside, causing the Azure Clouds Grandmaster to be three hundred miles apart. The Azure Clouds Grandmaster did not dare to use his own mana to explore the zone that
Lin Feng was in.
That was why he could not see from Lin Feng’s position that Xiao Yan and the rest were curiously admiring a Blue Cloud Horn Snake hunting, two hundred miles east from him.
As Lin Feng said, this was a Blue Cloud Horn Snake that had formed the demon pill and reached the level of a demonic commander. Its entire body was greenish-blue like a piece of jade and its size was not very huge. It was only ten meters in length, but its demonic aura was ferocious.
This Blue Cloud Horn Snake grew several long horns on its forehead and it emanated a fragrance from within.
The opening of the scales on the snake’s surface subtly contained foul greenish-blue clouds. It surrounded the entire body of the Blue Cloud Horn Snake. Although it did not have the mighty stature of the dragon clan, it was still special.
Tuntun saw that the Blue Cloud Horn Snake was salivating and began to introduce it to Xiao Bu Dian and Xiao Yan in full details, “This Blue Cloud Horn Snake has three treasures. The most delicious part of its entire body is the horn on its head.”
“That horn is very tough and does not taste very nice on its own. But the horn is hollow and contains an amber liquid. It is the essence of the Blue Cloud Horn Snake, which is extremely delicious.”
“Besides the liquid in the horn, the second most delicious thing on the Blue Cloud Horn Snake is the foul greenish clouds in between the openings of the scales. Do not view it only as a gas. After you consume it, the taste is actually very delicious. Compared to this, the snake meat can only come in third.”
Xiao Yan twisted his lips, “The liquid in the horn is still acceptable, but what is so good about the gas? I believe only Taoties can eat something like this.”
Tuntun snorted, “You cannot appreciate delicacies.”
“Try it later and you shall find out.” Xiao Bu Dian interrupted their debate and stared at the Blue
Cloud Horn Snake. “This little fellow seems to be hunting as well.”
The Blue Cloud Horn Snake continued to release the foul greenish-blue clouds around it and packaged it into a ball of reddish clouds as if it was trying to refine the reddish clouds.
Xiao Yan and the rest scanned their surroundings and immediately knew that the reddish clouds was something different. It was a treasure. Looking at the fluctuation in the spiritual energy of it, it was probably a device that was sacrificed by human cultivators.
It was just that the said person’s cultivation was a little low. When it was surrounded and attacked by the Blue Cloud Horn Snake that had formed the demon pill, it could only defend itself.
But the Blue Cloud Horn Snake noticed the presence of Xiao Yan and the other two and was obviously very fearful. It became wary of them and that was why the reddish clouds became very stable, not in danger of being broken into.
Xiao Bu Dian rubbed his palms and walked towards the Blue Cloud Horn Snake, laughing,
“Tuntun, do you think it is better to make snake soup or should I grill it?”
Tuntun rolled his eyes, “No matter how you eat it, the best is to catch it alive. Otherwise, the greenish-blue clouds will be wasted.”
The Blue Cloud Horn Snake possessed a comparable intelligence to humans and overheard the conversation between the three of them. It was furious, but it dared not move as the stress that
Xiao Bu Dian and the rest brought on it was too huge.
But if it just escaped straight away, the Blue Cloud Horn Snake would be unable to swallow this bitter pill. The vertical-like eyes of the snake moved and it suddenly opened its mouth, spraying an amber demonic gas out.
This amber demonic gas was converted from the liquid within its horn. When the demonic gas came into contact with the reddish clouds, although it did not directly break through it, it caused the reddish clouds to reel from the ground.
The reddish clouds was directly swallowed by the Blue Cloud Horn Snake as it was surrounded by the amber demonic gas.
It was preparing to escape. Even if the reddish clouds could not be broken through in that instant, it was more imperative to escape with it and slowly form it again once the danger had been averted.
After keeping the reddish clouds, the Blue Cloud Horn Snake bounced off the ground and converted itself into a green light, preparing to slither away.
“Thinking about it, it was quite beautiful.” Xiao Yan laughed creepily, waving the Black Cloud Flag to shift time and space. In a flash, he had already blocked the Blue Cloud Horn Snake from the front.
The Blue Cloud Horn Snake howled loudly and a huge amount of greenish clouds surged forward, ready to swallow Xiao Yan.
The greenish clouds brought with it a light leafy aroma, but Xiao Yan had no time to understand it better. There was a big vibration of ferocious demonic powers in the clouds, causing light tremors.
Xiao Yan creased his brows, “What a demon. Your gifted theurgy does have some similarities to my Crash of the Eight Trigrams.”
As he said it, Xiao Yan punched his fist out and a great amount of disintegration powers encountered the greenish clouds. The greenish clouds started to disintegrate.
But this greenish clouds from the Blue Cloud Horn Snake was indeed powerful, as it also caused
Xiao Yan’s mana to collapse gradually.
Xiao Yan slightly frowned, as he knew that this could not be sustained.
Out of Lin Feng’s three disciples who had formed the Aurous Core, only Xiao Bu Dian’s Nine Holed Aurous Core was able to spit and swallow spiritual energy. The accumulated mana caused it to be the most ferocious, while the recovery ability was particularly strong at the same time. As the Nine Holed Aurous Core spat and swallowed spiritual energy, it instantly converted a huge amount of spiritual energy to mana.
Zhu Yi’s Light and Darkness Aurous Core combined two elements to form life. Although its mana was not as ferocious as that of Xiao Bu Dian, its recovery ability was much stronger.
Whereas Xiao Yan’s Primordial Fires Aurous Core had the highest explosive strength and instantaneously exploded to release a huge amount of power. However, its sustainability and recovery ability was much worst.
Xiao Yan cultivated the Great Celestial Way of the Eight Trigrams and sucked the Purple Clouds for his own cultivation. With his mana, he could overwhelm the Blue Cloud Horn Snake, but he remembered Lin Feng’s teaching.
“Xiao Yan, regardless of your Aurous Core mana or your normal cultivated abhijna, the key lies in its explosive strength. Fighting a long-drawn battle is not your strength. You should try your best to minimize your weaknesses. But when you fight in a real battle, you must try to display your strengths.”
“Habit is a scary thing. It influences your judgments unknowingly, that is why you must show your strengths and hide your weaknesses. A dead enemy is a good enemy.”
Up till this point, Xiao Yan did not hesitate any more. He conjured all his mana and exhibited his pair of purplish-blue flaming wings. The destructive and frightening stature slowly appeared.
“No!” Both Tuntun and Xiao Bu Dian both shouted, but the wings that Xiao Yan formed using the Nefarious Spectral Primordial Fire suddenly combined in mid-space. It was like a big pair of scissors and it directly cut through the greenish clouds by the Blue Cloud Horn Snake.
There was no stopping of the purplish-blue wings. As the Blue Cloud Horn Snake stared at it fearfully, it was cut in half by it.
The willpower of the snake was strong. Even though it was chopped into half, the upper half of the snake’s body escaped, albeit struggling. Whereas for the lower half of the snake’s body, it continued to wriggle continuously on the ground.
Thunder and lightning were raging all around Xiao Bu Dian and he heavily stepped on the head of the Blue Cloud Horn Snake, trapping it on the ground. Seeing that the upper body of the Blue Cloud Horn Snake was still burning ferociously with the purplish-blue Nefarious Spectral Primordial Fire, he shouted hurriedly, “Big Senior, quickly retrieve back your abhijna, otherwise the snake meat would be burnt till nothing left.”
Tuntun was jumping while screaming beside Xiao Yan, “I already told you to catch it alive, this is such a waste!”
Xiao Yan snorted, “If I did not act faster, the person that was swallowed by it would have been in danger. Is a life more important or eating more important?”
Tuntun thought for a while, before replying, “Of course it is eating!”
Xiao Yan rolled his eyes and ignored her.
Xiao Bu Dian increased his leg strength, causing the Blue Cloud Horn Snake to be fully
immobilized. He raised his head to look at Xiao Yan, “Big Senior, what if the person you save is an evil person, then what follows?”
Xiao Yan answered, “Kill him directly then. What do you mean what follows?” He retrieved back his Nefarious Spectral Primordial Fire and tore apart its guts, revealing a reddish cloud device.
The amber demonic had already been converted to liquid and kept in the horn of the Blue Cloud Horn Snake. Without the repression of the amber demonic gas, the digestive power of the Blue Cloud Horn Snake was unable to break down the reddish clouds.
As if it felt that the demonic powers attacking it had disappeared, the reddish clouds slightly trembled but it did not scatter.
Xiao Yan raised his hands to hit against the reddish clouds and he felt that he was hitting cotton candy.
“Okay, that Blue Cloud Horn Snake can no longer threaten you. You can come out.”
Listening to Xiao Yan’s voice and feeling that the vibration of the mana was not from a demonic clan, the other party seemed to relax. The reddish clouds slowly dispersed and revealed the appearance of the person inside it. The reddish clouds were converted to a streak of red and was hidden in the gourd between his waist.
After clearly seeing the appearance of the other party, both Xiao Yan and that guy revealed a ghastly expression and shouted, “Murong Yanran?” “Xiao Yan?”
At the next moment, both shook their head and said, “You recognized the wrong person!”
Xiao Yan was momentarily shocked. He had spent so much time trying to save his opponent. If
Xiao Bu Dian and the rest knew about it, he would be extremely embarrassed.
Murong Yanran was even more embarrassed and she could not wait to find a hole to bury his head inside. For the first time, she felt that there was something worse than being trapped in the body of a snake.
