Chapter 835: Stand Above All
Translator: Exodus Tales Editor: Exodus Tales
“You want to bet with me?” Zhong Yue startled, he looked at Feng Qingyu then looked at Feng Wuji, he pondered, The gods on the ship that entered the State of Fuxi before us, could they be Feng Wuji and his companions? That said, Feng Wuji has asked a pureblood Fuxi to fight me?
The two Fuxi could almost immediately sense the resonance of their Fuxi bloodlines. Although Zhong Yue had sealed his Fuxi divine blood, it was impossible still to hide it from Feng Qingyu who was a pureblood Fuxi. On the other hand, Feng Qingyu never even cared to hide his Fuxi bloodline.
That said, he was not a real Fuxi but someone who had reincarnated into the Fuxi Celestial Race.
Killing intent rose up within Zhong Yue’s heart but his expression remained unperturbed, “What do you want to bet?”
Rays flashed across Feng Qingyu’s eyes, he replied calmly, “You know what I want.”
Zhong Yue looked at Feng Wuji and nodded, “I see.”
Feng Qingyu placed his hands on his back, “This is not the place for our battle, a safe and quiet location is needed. Else, I am afraid the Yinkang Clan will interfere.”
Zhong Yue nodded, “This indeed isn’t the right place. Be patient, I will come to you once I settle my matters here.”
Feng Qingyu nodded and left, “I’ll wait for you on the Heavenly River. What a shame, it seems like I’ll have to pass the battle with the so-called ‘Strongest Deity’ today.”
Rays flashed across Feng Wuji’s eyes as he brought Kua Fujin and Kua Fumao and followed Feng Qingyu.
The experts were puzzled, not understanding what was happening between them.
Lilian Lingyu smiled, “Brother-in-law, Sister Yinxuan praised you so highly that it was as if you are the only man left in this world. Now that you’ve shown yourself, it’s really out of my expectation that you’d be Mister Yi. Lingyu has long heard of your name and reputation. I heard that you are a reincarnated innate god who has been taken as one of the trusted and most valuable advisors to Imperial Emperor Xian Tian.”
Wu Qingqing nodded, “Brother-in-law’s courage of facing the two million gods of the two monarch races and one sovereign race has shocked me greatly. I never thought there would be anyone who dared to stand against such an irresistible force. What a pity, you’ve been taken by Sister Yinxuan already.”
Zhong Yue smiled, “It’s only natural that Yinxuan praises me, don’t take it too seriously. People, little did you know, Yinxuan has her own plan for her to set this day as the battle day. You’ve all been defeated in her hands, each and every one of you was a formidable opponent to her back then. It took her great effort to defeat you people. However, time passed by and people evolve. The power gaps between you people and Yinxuan has only grown wider, to a point that it’d be much easier to defeat you. Thus, she has set this day to settle the rightful title of her as ‘The Strongest Deity; once and for all. Am I right, Yinxuan?”
Yin Fanxuan whispered, “You’ve hurt their pride.”
Surely enough, the young experts were infuriated by his remarks.
Yin Fanxuan looked at them and said helplessly, “I’ve thought of it before. After all, I’ve defeated you people and I know very well of your capabilities. No matter how hard you try, you won’t be able to surpass the limits of your own talent.”
She said apologetically, “The attainments of your cultivation in the past, the present, and even the future are all presented before my eyes. I see through all of them and I know where your growth will end. Thus, I was thinking that it’d be easier to defeat you all the next time. Which leads to this day.”
How presumptuous, how arrogant, how self-conceited.
Yet, Yin Fanxuan stated it out in seriousness, it was clear that she never thought she was boasting and had the confidence with her.
This was the strongest aspect of the Innate Saint Spirit Body. The Innate Saint Spirit Body held immense affinity to the Dao. Any kind of skill cast through her hands was elevated in speed and power. Even when all the experts with the potential of Imperial Monarchs had just fought with her once, she was still able to see through their skills and moves, even the future of their cultivations.
Thus, that’s why she stated that all their skills were presented before her eyes and she could see through all of it.
She was just like an immortal who lived on top of a mountain, while Tian Xuanzi, Wu Qingqing, Pan Xu, and the others were hikers who tried to conquer that mountain. To her, whichever step and path they took could be seen by her with absolute clarity.
Tian Xuanzi flipped the table in front of him and walked out of the palace, he reached the outside and laughed loudly, “Have you husband and wife finished boasting? If you are done, then come and fight!”
Yin Fanxuan hesitated, “We are just married, isn’t it a little unsuitable for us to fight too soon?”
Zhong Yue glanced to the far side where Feng Qingyu disappeared to, he said, “I still have matters to attend to, let’s finish this quickly.”
Yin Fanxuan strode out from the palace, she replied helplessly, “It seems like there’s no way to not offend them today anymore.”
Zhong Yue strode out, he raised his voice, “Everyone, let’s make this easy for us all. All of you will challenge the two of us, anyone who defeats either of us will be ‘The Strongest Deity’. Let’s begin!”
The experts of the monarch races and sovereign races walked out of the palace, they looked up and saw there a sky filled with demon gods; the demon goods were emanating the demonic rays and shrouded by godly rays, some of them were sitting and some standing.
Yin Fukang laughed, “Be at ease, youngsters. The Yinkang Clan bears no ill-intent. I am just worried that my daughter and son-in-law would kill you all, that’ll bring unnecessary troubles. So I’ve brought the gods out and with us watching by the sides, just go all out as you desire and we’ll save anyone in grave dangers.”
“What an arrogant clan!” The followers of the young experts were stimulated, “No wonder Heavenly Monarch Tian Yuan and the incumbent Heavenly Monarch had you sealed here!”
“I don’t need you to save me!” Tian Xuanzi laughed aloud as he rushed toward Zhong Yue, he shouted, “Mister Yi, our last battle wasn’t a satisfying one, let’s battle again!”
A loud boom came from his body, followed by a second loud boom, third, fourth… A total of nine mini-explosions could be heard coming from his mortal body as Tian Xuanzi cast out the Juling True Form. His aura skyrocketed and his muscles bulged out while the Dao totem patterns formed into clouds that surrounded his mortal body.
The six light wheels turned behind Tian Xuanzi’s head and the Innate Lightning Bell hovered in the light wheels. It was ringing incessantly and struck on Zhong Yue.
He hadn’t cast the Juling True Body during the last battle with Zhong Yue, but now, as he did, his power had grown exponentially, reaching a few times stronger than before!
“Husband, I’ve fought against him more times than you, I know him better, let me handle him!” Yin Fanxuan flew up and intercepted Tian Xuanzi. Tian Xuanzi roared, “Step aside Yin Fanxuan! I said I won’t fight you, I want to fight your man!”
“That’s not up to you to decide!” Yin Fanxuan cast out the jade flute and played it.
Her flute was different than the others, there were 24 wind holes on it and each of it resembled a world, totaling up to 24 worlds.
As she played the flute, phantoms of the 24 worlds appeared above them, some were like phoenixes and some were like dragons. The roars of the dragons and screeches of the phoenixes countered the Innate Lighting Bell, nearly shattering them away!
The 24 phantoms shone brightly as their powers gushed down. Yin Fanxuan and Tian Xuanzi were locked in a melee, and in just seconds, they had both exchanged more than thousands of skills.
But when compared to Yin Fanxuan, Tian Xuanzi’s skills were mostly countered by Yin Fanxuan before they were able to unleash their true powers. Either they were intercepted by her skills or they would simply be crushed before their effects come in. This greatly shocked and angered Tian Xuanzi a lot.
As his skills were decrypted and countered, his defensive barrier had crushed away layer after layer. Yin Fanxuan’s skills were able to invade his room of movements and unleash their powers closer to his face.
Eventually, all of his defenses were shattered and Yin Fanxuan flicked her fingers, casting hundreds of skills in an instant that struck every part of his body.
“Spare the young master!” The Juling elder’s face changed drastically, he shouted and lunged over for his young master.
In the sky, the Yinkang Clan demon gods were also galvanized into action as they tried to save Tian Xuanzi from the barrage of skills.
Suddenly, Tian Xuanzi shouted, “I don’t need any help!”
The giant rolled on the ground and crashed into the mountains, crumbling a few of them and was bounced up from the ground again, nearly falling into the Heavenly River.
“Let’s go!” Tian Xuanzi helped himself up from the dirt and said angrily.
“Hey, hey…” Yin Fukang shook and sigh, “What should we do? You’ve crushed our mountains and never actually tried to compensate us for that…”
Tian Xuanzi nearly spurts out a mouth of blood, he hopped onto the ship and turned around as he shouted, “I’ve lost, don’t fight Yin Fanxuan, she is so damn strong! Fight her husband, fight Yin brother-in-law, he is weaker!”
The Juling elder beside him quickly said, “Young master, why do you tell them? If they’ve defeated Mister Yi, the title of ‘The Strongest Deity’ will be given to them, wouldn’t it?”
Tian Xuanzi smirked, “Mister Yi is also a formidable opponent, it’s more than difficult to defeat him. Furthermore, after they defeat Mister Yi, I can jump in and defeat them later. The title will still be mine after all.”
The experts were shocked, stunned by Tian Xuanzi’s quick defeat. Although he wasn’t the strongest, but he was definitely the top few experts. Before this, he was still able to battle with Yin Fanxuan in a prolonged battle and win two out of five battles.
But this time, he was defeated far too easily.
Yin Fanxuan was really strong, so powerful that she began to cast a shadow over their Dao hearts.
“Brat Yue, if you and your wife were to fight, do you have the confidence to win?” Xin Huo suddenly whispered.
Zhong Yue’s eyelids thumped, “I am afraid I’m not her match, even with the Fuxi True Form… Hmm, I have to reclaim my past life body to stand on par with her but you are saying to defeat her, I’ll have to reclaim Bo Xun and Long Yue to be able to have an 80% chance of winning…”
Xin Huo sighed, “It’s not too good a thing to marry a wife stronger than you, you can’t even force her to do anything. At this rate, the Fuxi babies are still a distant dream… This lady is too strong, her talent and intelligence are the best of the best…”
Suddenly, Xiang Zungong, Lu Wang, Lilian Lingyu, and the others turned to Zhong Yue; Wu Qingqing chortled, “Brother-in-law, do you really mean your words?”
Zhong Yue smiled, “Of course.”
The experts’ eyes brightened up but before they could voice their challenges to him, Lilian Lungyu has already pounced toward Zhong Yue with a laugh, “Brother-in-law, please go easy on me!”
Zhong Yue moved back, his eyes looking at Lilian Lingyu’s skills; the Yin and Yang lines could be seen changing endlessly in his eyes.
Lilian Lingyu pressured Zhong Yue further with stronger and more exquisite skills, she smiled, “Brother-in-law, are you just going to keep retreating?”
From the start of the battle to now, Zhong Yue had already taken nine steps back. He saw through her moves and suddenly, surged the innate Qi into his arms and shattered all of her incoming skills and defences.
Lilian Lingyu watched as a fist grew bigger in her visions, she tried to block it with her arms but Zhong Yue’s fist contained the Innate Yang Qi, Innate Yin Qi, Innate Celestial Qi, Innate Demon Qi, and Innate Lighting Qi, while his arms harbored the Innate Yi Qi.
When the innate Qi’s powers erupted, a loud boom deafened her ears and Lilian Lingyu was shot out with a pair of shattered arms.
This brother-in-law, he doesn’t look like an easy target either… The experts looked at Lilian Lingyu and Zhong Yue and thought.
