Chapter 1261: Heading to Sky Ice Palace
Translator: RITF_Rain Editor: Chrissy
Han Bingxue didn’t dare to arrogantly call Li Wuliang his nickname Li Li or clamor that he would give Li Wuliang a lesson. At the moment, the only thing he could do was to show Li Wuliang a perfect smile. He decided not to piss the demon anymore.
He was right. He shouldn’t have messed with Li Wuliang, at least before he was able to win the fight!
“Hmm. It seems the lesson worked pretty well.” Ye Xiao said, trying not to laugh, “What about a second fight tomorrow? Just to consolidate what you learned today.”
That was surprising, and Han Bingxue was so scared that he automatically jumped up and shook his head. “No, no, no… No… Don’t… I have perfectly learned what I should learn, and I will never forget the lesson… I won’t! I am good… Heh, heh…”
He tried to laugh because he wanted to show that he was doing good. However, when he laughed, the ‘heh, heh’ sounded just like a chicken that was grabbed on the neck.
“Hahahaha…” Li Wuliang and Ye Xiao both laughed out loud.
Birds of a feather flock together; things of one kind come together. Like attracts like. The three of them were living evidence!
After half a day, night fell.
“Boss, I am going with you… Please… Let me come with you… Please…” Han Bingxue moaned while nearly shedding tears.
Ye Xiao wanted to return to the Town of Ye in Oracle District and leave the two brothers behind…
It was not a problem to Han Bingxue that Ye Xiao returned to Oracle District. The problem was that Ye Xiao was leaving alone… It meant Han Bingxue had to stay with Li Wuliang after Ye Xiao was gone… Han Bingxue didn’t even dare to imagine how miserable it could be to stay with Li Wuliang.
It seemed he had learned his own Tittle Phase skill and was able to defend himself a little when facing Li Wuliang’s attacks, but it was only a conjecture. He wasn’t sure whether he had entered the Tittle Phase or not yet… Besides, Li Wuliang was not the same now!
In only half a day, Li Wuliang had become no longer the same person!
The current Li Wuliang… was a man who had eaten the Divine Yin Yang Fruit!
That meant he was now an absolute horrible figure!
Li Wuliang had become the biggest nightmare to Han Bingxue!
“What? Do you mean you are tired of staying with me?” Li Wuliang stared at Han Bingxue and made a big smile.
“Wait… No… I didn’t mean that, did I?” Han Bingxue hurriedly shook his head. His face turned pale, and his teeth were rattling.
All of a sudden, the golden hawk had arrived in Ye Xiao’s order. Ye Xiao quickly rode on the back of the hawk.
“I am leaving now! You two together, promise me you will be happy.” That was the last thing he said before he left. What a jerk! After the flickering golden light, he had gone with the golden hawk… No sign of him was left behind…
“Oh no…” Han Bingxue nearly cried.
“Hmm. Hey! Why are you showing such an ugly face? What? Do you feel aggrieved to stay with me?” Li Wuliang held Han Bingxue’s neck, talking to him as if they were two close friends.
As Li Wuliang got closer, what Han Bingxue saw was such a wicked face. Han Bingxue’s pretty face was contorting in both fear and anxiety.
“Alright now. Let’s go.” Li Wuliang grinned and said, “Han Bingxue… I will let you feel… what ultimate happiness is… just like Ye Xiao said! I will make you happy… Hahahahaha…”
“Help!” Han Bingxue’s scream pierced the clouds in the sky.
Han Bingxue and Li Wuliang were making it really slow on the way. In the first two days, Li Wuliang had done anything he could to cure Han Bingxue, including importing spiritual qi into his body and massaging his muscles. In the end, Han Bingxue eventually got well again.
As a man who appreciated his own appearance, he wanted his handsome face back very much. It was the most enjoyable thing for him to get his pretty face and strapping body back, so as a matter of fact, he did feel the happiness of it when Li Wuliang helped him get well…
When Han Bingxue was touched, he nearly regarded Li Wuliang as his real biological older brother…
However, Li Wuliang abruptly started to attack again. He dragged Han Bingxue over and punched him hard until he was severely injured again!
Well, after that, Li Wuliang started to cure him once again…
Han Bingxue was so desperately longing for death at the moment…
He couldn’t win a fight against Li Wuliang nor could he escape from Li Wuliang. What made him feel despair was what Li Wuliang kept saying after the torture, “I am doing this for everybody’s sake!”
“I enjoy it! You get trained! Don’t you?”
“You are improved too much, yet your experience and mindset don’t match your cultivation… You have to hurry… Do not leave any hidden trouble inside you…”
“As long as you work hard enough to master your Tittle Phase skill, I won’t be able to hit you anymore! Isn’t it true?”
Han Bingxue was almost shedding tears, and he said, “You are not doing this for me! You are doing this because you enjoy it! What the hell is this training? Are you sure you are doing it right?”
“Stop grumbling trash. Do you understand? You should focus on mastering your own Tittle Phase skill! That is what you should be thinking about right now! What? No progress huh? Well… I should not stop the torture then, should I? Wait… You are well now, aren’t you?”
And then… – Bang, bang, bang… –
“How about it? Did you learn anything more? Yes? Did you get it now? Great! Show me!”
– Bang, bang, bang… –
“Good! I am impressed. That was a big step. You can dodge one out of ten attacks me now. Great progress! Isn’t it? Let’s keep going. Don’t stop!”
– Bang, bang, bang… –
“Hey! Eight strikes now! I can’t believe you were improving a bit! I can still hit you eight times! What does that mean? Do you know? It means you are a pig! You haven’t been working hard in the last few times! I am telling you! I will help you no more than one thousand times! If you still can’t get improved by then, I won’t hold back my power anymore… Now! Let’s do the first of the one thousand!”
– Bang, bang, bang… –
Han Bingxue was obviously improving fast all the way along with Li Wuliang. His improvement was astonishing even to himself.
He had never worked this hard ever, not even when he was hunted.
He kept shedding tears and snots because he was working truly too hard this time. Even after being beaten really hard and lying on the floor like a dead man, he still tried so hard to think about what he could do better in Li Wuliang’s previous attack. He had been learning everything about fighting from every attack and wanted to learn them all…
He even wished for ten thousand brains. If possible, his ten thousand brains would keep thinking of all that he had to learn in the attacks about Tittle Phase…
“I am being honest with you! There are only two possibilities ahead of you! First, you will completely lose hope in mastering your own Tittle Phase, which means you will be tortured by me to death! Second, you will fully master your own Tittle Phase… If you can perfectly use your Tittle Phase skill on your moving techniques, I won’t be able to hit you easily even if I do it in full power!”
Han Bingxue thought, [Am I going to be a dominant figure who became strong because of the fear for being beaten?] He felt sad about it.
[What a shame… Even I have already improved a lot earlier, I haven’t gotten the opportunity to enjoy the time putting a pretentious show yet… Now, I am here in this continuous torturous trip which is the most painful experience in my life… And this man… My destined bane… keeps torturing me, yet talks with a mouthful of nice words…]
He had been complaining, moaning, grumbling, cursing, and screaming all the way along… However, he had become stronger and stronger. Meanwhile, his shamelessness was growing day by day. The flattering words that he said to Li Wuliang were becoming more and more sickening…
Compared to Han Bingxue’s inward grievance, Li Wuliang had been enjoying a truly happy and delightful time with Han Bingxue. He did not only enjoy beating Han Bingxue, but he also enjoyed having himself improve a lot in cultivation at the same time!
The Divine Yin Yang Fruit was not the only reason that had brought the improvement to him though.
Li Wuliang had only been one step away to the surpassing level of Dao Origin Stage after combining the two differently attributed powers inside himself. Although the Divine Yin Yang Fruit seemed to provide him with a lot of energy, the energy that was wasted was more than what he absorbed. As a matter of fact, he had only absorbed thirty percent of the energy inside the fruit. It was less than Han Bingxue indeed. However, they were in entirely different levels when they ate the fruit, which meant Li Wuliang was still better than Han Bingxue!
What Li Wuliang had made progress was in the field of Tittle Phase. He was a new Tittle Phase cultivator too, who knew absolutely less than he should about his cultivation level. Besides, his own Tittle Phase skill was quite different than others, so he had to try to learn it by himself! That was why he improved so slowly!
What he wanted now was to figure out other ways to use his skill. The saber rainstorm that he performed on Han Bingxue was a good example, however, it was not a good one. At least, it wouldn’t work if he used it on a bunch of those secret organization people. He had done a great job using it on Han Bingxue, but it was because the latter had a weak mindset, not because the saber storm was good enough!
When he was torturing Han Bingxue, he was not only watching Han Bingxue improve, but also learning from it. He tried to learn something from Han Bingxue’s Tittle Phase skill and made some possible changes on his own!
“If you can perfectly use your Tittle Phase skill on your moving techniques, I won’t be able to hit you easily even if I do it in full power!” This was what Li Wuliang said to Han Bingxue. He was not lying! He meant it!
When Han Bingxue perfectly mastered his Absolute-dodge moving skill, which meant he could move in the most fantastic way, he could avoid being hit by any attacks in the world!
Li Wuliang’s Tittle Phase skill was quite a different story though. Han Bingxue focused on evasion, while Li Wuliang focused on attack. Han Bingxue was improving, which meant Li Wuliang couldn’t always hit Han Bingxue in every attack. However, Li Wuliang wanted to hit Han Bingxue, so he had to improve himself at the same time. That was how Li Wuliang also got improved while Han Bingxue became stronger. The two opposite kinds of skills actually kept pushing each other to the upper level in practice!
It was pretty surprising, to Li Wuliang, Han Bingxue, and Ye Xiao!
If the two of them could stay with each other for long enough, fighting all along, at least one of them could reach the peak of Tittle Phase. However, their journey was going to end soon, because they weren’t that far from the destination…
The destination was Saint Sunlight Sect.
The golden hawk kept flying like lightning all along, moving over ten thousand miles in the sky within seconds.
The temperature was dropping. Below them, the land was covered with snow and ice. Apparently, they were heading to somewhere cold.
The Ice Terrain was in the north of Qing-Yun Realm, where the temperature stayed the lowest in the realm. In this area, there were two sects, one of which was Ice Cloud Palace, one of the three great palaces. The other wasn’t as powerful as Ice Cloud Palace, but it was also a famous sect in the realm, where Ye Xiao was heading to at the moment.
Sky Ice Palace.
The sect that Jun Yinglian belonged to.
Li Wuliang’s words had been resounding in Ye Xiao’s head when he was riding the hawk on the way to Sky Ice Palace…
‘Come on! Change your face to the better-looking one already! Look at you! This is so unacceptably ugly! I refuse to look at you! Jun Yingling must have lost her sight… She is at least one of the three most beautiful women in Qing-Yun Realm, yet she actually fell in love with you… That was so unreasonable!’
Ye Xiao just couldn’t get rid of Li Wuliang’s voice. [F*ck! Am I really that ugly? Really?]
He took an ice plate from somewhere and used it as a mirror, started to look at himself. [I don’t see anything wrong with my face! I am still pretty handsome… Well, I am not the best among all those pretty-face boys, but I am not so bad.]
After that, he changed the face to the young man Lord Ye. Well, it made him smile bitterly.
“Well… Fine… I don’t want to look at my own face now…”
He had been traveling a long way in his own face, and the ugliness of himself made him understand how precious Jun Yinglian was to him. [I was so ugly, yet she still loved me…]
[That is… so touching!]
He started to feel guilty… [It turns out I was ugly like sh*t… I guess I should better keep my wife around with me as soon as possible… in case one day she starts to realize how ugly I am and leaves me for another guy… That is not impossible anyway…]
[There were a lot of men pursuing Jun Yinglian in those days!]
That was why he decided not to go home and see his parents first but come to Sky Ice Palace for Jun Yinglian. He had thought about it, [It will take at least half a month for Yue Shuang and Yue Han to take my father and mother back to the Town of Ye. A half month is long enough for me to go to Sky Ice Palace and then go back to the Town of Ye to be a good boy.]
Thus, he was here for Jun Yinglian.
Ye Xiao easily passed all the traps and defense power arrays. Jun Yinglian had told him everything he needed to know to get into the palace a long time earlier. Ye Xiao always knew why she would do so, but he never was brave enough to come!
In the snow-white world, there was a crystal palace standing up right in front of him.
In the entrance, there were two girls who were in white clothes practicing sword fight with a sword in each of their hand. They must be guarding the palace but were bored by the job, so they started to practice martial arts.
