“I am indeed unsure of many things.” Xiao Yan shrugged his shoulders, “For example, I don’t know how you have so much confidence to be so audacious. You must be so mad that you can’t remember your name, can you?”
Xiao Yan sized up the Marquis of Jinghuan and was very unkind, “Don’t tell me it’s like what the rumors say, that you are the illegitimate child of Liang Pan? Even if you are, with the trouble you are going to cause, Liang Pan won’t protect you.”
The Marquis of Jinghuan had achieved a lot although he was young, thus he was greatly rewarded. He was even given the privilege to don the royal clothing, as if he was a royalty. There were a lot of internal discussions in the Great Zhou Empire. There were even those who thought he was Liang Pan’s illegitimate son.
Liang Pan had never refuted these rumors, neither did the Marquis of Jinghuan reply to them.
Xiao Yan looked at him, “If it was Liang Yuan who riled the Demon Phoenix tribe, it will still be a heinous crime. The lighter punishment will be the stripping of his Crown Prince position, whereas there will be further serious punishment awaiting him.”
The two Nascent Soul Stage cultivators behind the Marquis of Jinghuan as well as the other Nascent Soul Stage cultivators all felt uncomfortable by Xiao Yan’s words. They looked at him unkindly and their killing intent expanded, leaving one petrified.
The Marquis of Jinghuan was not furious and said calmly, “That’s why I say you don’t know a lot of things.”
“Xiao Yan, the senior disciple of the Celestial Sect of Wonders. Came from the Xiao Family in Wuzhou County of the Great Qin Empire. He should be 19 years old, but he had cultivated in the cave where time was sped up, thus he is now over 20 years old.”
“A year on Xingyun Peak, he fought Shi Chongyun with his Aurous Core Stage cultivation. He has the Grand Sun Primordial Fire and Nefarious Spectral Primordial Fire with him. He had once cultivated the combination of both Primordial Fires and destroyed one of Shi Chongyun’s magic item. The fight ended in a stalemate.”
The tone of the Marquis of Jinghuan’s voice was calm. But he knew everything about Xiao Yan, “After the fight, he rose to the Intermediate Stage of the Aurous Core Stage. After that, he disappeared. The last time he fought was on Xingyun Peak.”
“Now, with your cultivation already in the Advanced Stage of the Aurous Core Stage, you have indeed rose quite quickly. As compared to your previous exploits, your current abilities will enable you to defeat cultivators in the Intermediate Stage of the Nascent Soul Stage. You may even match up to a Nascent Soul Stage cultivator in the Advanced Stage.”
As the Marquis of Jinghuan said till here, his eyes shifted a little, “There has been word that the Celestial Sect of Wonders is full of freaks. Now that I see you, I believe that it is real.”
“The leader of the Celestial Sect of Wonders is also one of the freaks.” The Marquis of Jinghuan’s expression did not change. “But if you think you can stop me, then you are wrong.”
“I can delay as I face this Demon Phoenix with my Ancient Royal Dagger. But if you are up against my God-Slayer Puppet, how long can you last?”
He might say that, but with his relaxed attitude, regardless whether it was Xiao Yan, Fei Ye or Black Jade, they could tell that besides the Immortal Royal Flag and the Ancient Royal Dagger, he must have some other tricks up his sleeves.
This was very terrifying. To have three magic treasures with Immortal Soul Stage abilities was not the end of this guy’s powers.
“Maybe we can spar.” The Marquis of Jinghuan said, “I will like to see how special the mantras and abhijnas of the Celestial Sect of Wonders are.”
Xiao Yan was fearless and laughed, “Okay, let’s try.”
He clasped his hands and bright golden flames spurted out. They were like a small-scale Sun that rose in the internal world of the Immortal Royal Flag.
“Only the Grand Sun Primordial Fire? It’s useless. Even without the Ancient Royal Dagger and if I was still in the Aurous Core Stage, you will still not be my match. What more now as I am in the Nascent Soul Stage and holding the Ancient Royal Dagger?”
As the Marquis of Jinghuan spoke, a figure flashed. The God-Slayer Puppet held off Fei Ye temporarily while he dashed towards Xiao Yan.
He was raging with excitement and combined that with the power of transcending space, allowing him to move faster than lightning.
“Spell of the Emperor, Order of the Dictator!”
The Marquis of Jinghuan grabbed the Ancient Royal Dagger with his right hand but did not use it. Instead, he kept it behind him. Whereas the five fingers of his left hand were wide open and they smacked down on Xiao Yan.
Om! Om! Om!
Space resonated with an explosive sound. Xiao Yan realized that the air in the void space surround him was taken away. Space was collapsing towards him, hoping to crush him in the center like a pile of minced meat.
The Marquis of Jinghuan smacked his palm down. With the might of an Emperor and his dominance, his orders were followed by the Heavens and Earth.
His domineering stature was exhibited in the form of the Order of the Dictator, playing out the frightening strength that resembled the destruction of the Heavens and Earth.
Xiao Yan had not gone through a fight with a Nascent Soul Stage Elder in the Advanced Stage. But he heard Zhu Yi and the rest mentioned about Nascent Soul Stage Grandmasters who revealed their powerful Cosmic Forms.
But they were never as powerful as the Marquis of Jinghuan’s combination of his flesh and Cosmic Form.
Just the palm of the Marquis of Jinghuan could crush the Cosmic Forms of several Nascent Soul Stage cultivators.
Even without the magic treasures, he could still defeat Nascent Soul Stage cultivators with his cultivation. There were few in his league.
“Ha, just nice!” Xiao Yan laughed. The bright and golden Grand Sun Primordial Fire in his hands started to transform.
A streak of golden flame that was shining with red and blue radiance shone in Xiao Yan’s hands.
Within Xiao Yan’s pupils, two flashes of fire were radiated. In his left eye, the color of the fire was pure golden and it was blinding. In his right eye, the fire was golden but flashed with red and blue that took turns to surface.
He summoned his powers to the extreme and his fingers became extremely flexible. He struck countless spells into the Primordial Fire in his palms.
A frightening aura was released. It was a power concept that razed everything and turned the Heavens and Earth into ashes.
“Heaven Fire Lotus!” Xiao Yan took in a deep breath and clasped his palms. The brutal flames settled down, consolidating to form a golden lotus seat that was as big as a palm. In the center of the golden lotus seat, red and blue radiance converted into stamens that swayed gently.
The Primordial Fire formed the Heaven Fire Lotus. Since Xiao Yan had reached the Advanced Stage of the Aurous Core Stage, the combination of the Primordial Fire was now much easier than it was on Xingyun Peak. It was smoother too and formed faster. This spell was completed almost instantaneously.
He had been too dormant for too long. He was about to unleash all of it out today and announce to the world that he was back!
At the same time, the palm of the Marquis of Jinghuan came smashing down.
Xiao Yan received the palm of the Marquis of Jinghuan using the Heaven Fire Lotus without hesitation. Amidst the boom, the black light world turned extremely bright.
In the next moment, void space was swallowed by the boundless sea of fire.
Even Fei Ye was astonished. Black Jade and the Nascent Soul Stage cultivators under the Marquis of Jinghuan were also petrified. The Heaven Fire Lotus was indeed very frightening.
Such a power was sufficient to destroy the Cosmic Form of an average Nascent Soul Stage cultivator. It was even possible for it to destroy their powers.
As the sea of fire engulfed the place, there was also the flashing of the red and blue radiance.
In the center of the sea of fire, Xiao Yan was like the king of flames. He stood there mightily and he looked serious. He stared at Marquis of Jinghuan who was at a distance away.
The Marquis of Jinghuan was also in the sea of fire, but he was unbothered by the flames around him.
Xiao Yan thought, “This person is very strong. Even if Shi Chongyun cultivated till the Advanced Stage of the Nascent Soul Stage, he may not even be able to bear the Heaven Fire Lotus. For this guy now to resist it, he must be something.”
“Such a power would guarantee victory over most Nascent Soul Stage cultivators.” As compared to Xiao Yan, the Marquis of Jinghuan looked even more serious. Ever since he appeared, this was the first time he was surprised, “The two Primordial Fires that you combined, one of them is indeed the Grand Sun Primordial Fire. But the other…”
“Oh, golden and flashing with red and blue radiance. It is the Nanming Primordial Fire. You have the Nanming Primordial Fire. Besides the Grand Moon and Nanming Primordial Fire, you also have the Nefarious Spectral Primordial Fire.” The Marquis of Jinghuan said, “You have three Primordial Fires?”
As he said this, everyone was shocked. They looked at Xiao Yan shockingly.
Even Fei Ye retreated from the God-Slayer Puppet and stopped the fight. He looked at Xiao Yan, “He has three Primordial Fires?”
Xiao Yan laughed and did not speak. His silence was consent.
It was silent suddenly. Regardless whether it was the Marquis of Jinghuan or Fei Ye, or even Black Jade and the rest, they all had the same question now.
Xiao Yan could combine the powers of two Primordial Fire. But could his Heaven Fire Lotus combine three Primordial Fires at the same time?
Two Primordial Fires were already very powerful. What if there were three Primordial Fires?
It could not be as simple as just an addition. How powerful could he get?
The vision of the Marquis of Jinghuan oscillated between Fei Ye and Xiao Yan, “To deal with Xiao Yan, I need the Ancient Royal Dagger. But that will reduce the pressure on that phoenix. Just the God-Slayer Puppet will not be enough.”
“To deal with the both of them at the same time, I need more trump cards. But I can’t reveal too much now.” The Marquis of Jinghuan thought to himself, “And I don’t have much time. The rest of the Demon Phoenixes will be here soon.”
As he thought till here, the Marquis of Jinghuan gestured and the Ancient Royal Dagger was kept. Even the Immortal Royal Flag was retracted and Xiao Yan, Fei Ye and Black Jade were released.
Following that, the Immortal Royal Flag swayed and brought the Marquis of Jinghuan and his men away. They just left without delaying.
“The Celestial Sect of Wonders is indeed powerful.” The voice of the Marquis of Jinghuan rung in the skies, “But this Black Demon Phoenix will be mine someday.”
“Xiao Yan, you disrupted matters. I will settle this score with you some other day.”
“But, if you have the time to interfere, why not use it to think about the future of the Celestial Sect of Wonders. I must warn you that the backer of Shi Tianyi is no longer just the Shi Clan and the Yu Clan.”
