Chapter 1662: Useless Trash
Helplessness swept over the Second Princess’ face. She couldn’t do anything about the battle between her two prince brothers and she could only hope that the First Prince wouldn’t take it too far.
The Third Prince’s Gu Yuanji’s face was also stern. He knew that his first brother would not only target the Eighth Prince.
After he humiliated the Eighth Prince, the First Prince would definitely shift his target to the Third Prince.
However, Gu Yuanji was not anxious as he was stronger than Gu Tianyi. Regardless of whether it was his own cultivation rank or that of his subordinates, his powers far exceeded Gu Tianyi.
At a corner, Su Mo sat calmly and watched the events unfold as his brows slightly started to crease together.
If Gu Tianyi was unable to go against the First Prince’s bullying of him, Su Mo would not remain indifferent. After all, Gu Tianyi had helped him greatly.
“I hope you can deal with the hit yourself!” Su Mo sighed to himself. If he wasn’t required to take action, he wouldn’t.
If Su Mo went up stage, he would just be bullying everyone else so there was no meaning to it!
“Hmm?” Right at that moment, Su Mo felt a light killing intent surrounding him again.
He immediately turned around and saw that Taishi Yuan of the Taishi Family was sternly glaring at him.
However, the moment Taishi Yuan saw Su Mo whip his head around, he shifted his own focus back to the grounds again.
“He doesn’t know his place!” Su Mo coldly scoffed inwardly. He knew that Taishi Yuan definitely wanted to kill him.
Evidently, the reason Taishi Yuan wanted to kill him was to take revenge for Taishi Jue.
There were two men from the Taishi Family this time. Aside from Taishi Yuan, there was also Taishi Xiang Yue.
These two had high cultivation ranks. Taishi Yuan was a Rank 9 Martial Honorable while Taishi Xiang Yue was at the peak of the Rank 8 Martial Honorable Realm.
However, although the two of them were strong, Su Mo was not afraid. The two definitely did not have the ability to kill him in the Imperial Ancestor Court Faction.
On the other hand, Gu Tianyi was silent for a while after Jin Lu apologized to him. Thereafter, he waved his hand casually and stated, “It is just a trial fight and it is inevitable for one to be injured. You did not do anything wrong!”
“Eighth Prince is gracious!” Jin Lu immediately thanked loudly with a fake smile plastered across his face.
With the pardon from Gu Tianyi, it was inevitable that someone would be heavily injured later.
“However, Jin Lu, if you end up being hurt, don’t blame anyone!”
At that point, Gu Tianyi added another sentence.
“Of course, it is a trial test and it is hard to avoid being injured. If I am injured later, I will not blame anyone!” Jin Lu smiled. He understood what Gu Tianyi’s was implying with that sentence.
However, Jin Lu did not take his words to heart. He had absolute confidence in winning and unless Gu Tianyi personally fought against him, the trashy underlings of Gu Tianyi could not be his match.
Gu Tianyi nodded his head softly upon hearing Jin Lu’s words.
With that, Jin Lu looked towards the crowd again and scanned the geniuses that Gu Tianyi brought. In a loud voice, he dared, “Who else is willing to trial fight against me?”
The moment Jin Lu’s words fell, a young man wearing a purple long robe flew onto the grounds.
This young man had large nostrils and his mouth was also slightly crooked. Yet, the aura from his body surged thickly and he was obviously a Rank 7 Martial Honorable.
“Jin Lu, aren’t you being too arrogant?” The odd-looking young man stared at Jin Lu and loudly accused. He was completely angry.
Jin Lu had purposely harmed Shao Yun and the incident had caused his killing intent to surge.
The injured Shao Yun saw the odd-looking young man arrive and he immediately handed over the jade bangle he wore to the young man before he left the grounds.
He had suffered a heavy defeat and could only hope that the odd-looking young man could take revenge for him.
“I just defeated my opponent, how is that being arrogant?” Jin Lu calmly claimed. However, his face was starting to turn serious.
The odd-looking young man was Zhuo Hen, and although he was ugly, his power was strong. He may have been the strongest talent under the Eighth Prince.
If they battled against each other in normal circumstances, Jin Lu, who was a lower cultivation rank than Zhuo Hen, would have been slightly weaker.
Although now it was a same-rank fight between the two and Jin Lu had the confidence of winning, he did not dare to underestimate Zhuo Hen.
“You obviously did it on purpose. Do you think we are dumb?” The ugly young man accused as he put on the jade bangle.
Jin Lu nonchalantly shrugged his shoulders before he mocked, “Then show me how you will fight me seriously.”
Jin Lu was unafraid. Cultivation rank did not play a part in a trial fight here, and hence if one’s fighting strength was weak, he only had himself to blame.
Zhuo Hen was completely enraged and without speaking further, he punched both fists towards Jin Lu.
In an instant, two streaks of purple-colored Fist Radiance shot out at Jin Lu.
Shockwaves that formed along with the two streaks of Fist Radiance were incredibly strong. Like an angry dragon roaring, the Fist Radiance carried a vast Ultimacy.
This was a force-based Ultimacy that was strong. It allowed the strength of the Fist Radiance to be as strong as a hundred large mountains.
Against Zhuo Hen’s attack, Jin Lu was extra careful. Bright green light flashed in his hand and a green longsword appeared.
With a wave of the longsword, green light blinded his eyes and a sharp streak of Sword Qi flew out horizontally towards the two Fist Radiances.
This sword was naturally Jin Li’s true power. Sword Qi swept out in all directions as a death-like aura flowed along with the attack.
There was a withered form Ultimacy in the attack and although the Ultimacy was not as concentrated as Zhuo Hen’s Force Ultimacy, it was not weak.
In an instant, the Sword Qi heavily cut through the two streaks of Fist Radiance as a deafening explosion sounded.
Fist Radiance immediately burst apart while the Sword Qi crumbled into shockwaves that sent the two martial artists backward.
The attacks from the two were on par with each other.
“So strong?” Jin Lu’s eyes narrowed. Zhuo Hen’s strength had exceeded his expectations.
Jin Lu knew about Zhuo Hen’s abilities thoroughly. Zhuo Hen did not have a strong physical strength but his comprehension of his Ultimacy was deep. It was already at the peak of the Rank 3 Realm of comprehension.
The Ultimacy strength was a force that was hard to comprehend. Many martial artists were unable to comprehend it strongly.
That was because the cultivation rank was the root of many martial artists and the Ultimacy was only a supporting force.
However, Zhuo Hen comprehended the Force Ultimacy to the peak of the Rank 3 Realm and hence, he was considered an exceptional genius in that aspect.
Yet, although Zhuo Hen was strong, Jin Lu was still fearless. He had never lost against anyone who was of the same cultivation rank as him before
With a loud battle cry, Jin Lu attacked again. Green light burst forth from his hand and he instantly struck down 19 times with his sword.
19 strokes of Sword Qi merged together and formed a hundred foot long green sword that flung towards Zhuo Hen.
Against this attack, Zhuo Hen once again brought both his fists out to block it. Two streaks of powerful Fist Radaince shot out.
Deafening explosions shook the sky and, unfortunately, Zhuo Hen was still slightly weaker than Jin Lu. He was thrown backward by a few dozen steps.
Jin Lu mercilessly struck out a downpour of attacks on Zhuo Hen.
Against the relentless attacks, Zhuo Hen was flung backwards continuously as he could not handle the attacks.
Sighs escaped everyone’s mouths. Zhuo Hen was about to lose and Jin Lu was going to wipe out all the men of the Eighth Prince.
Right at that point, Zhuo Hen waved his fists again and a seal appeared. Thereafter, thick Dark Force merged to a purple fist force that was about the size of a millstone.
The green, massive sword struck against the fist force, instantly destroying it. Although the energy of the green sword dropped significantly, its force did not and it continued to strike at Zhuo Hen’s chest.
“Not good!” Zhuo Hen’s heart leapt in fear. In the blink of an eye, he desperately jerked around in an attempt to avoid the large sword.
The sound of flesh being torn apart echoed ominously through the garden. Zhuo Hen could not avoid the massive sword and his shoulder was instantly sliced by the green sword.
Fresh blood spurted out and a large portion of Zhuo Hen’s hand and shoulder was cut down by the large sword.
A chilling scream escaped Zhuo Hen’s mouth as his body was flung backward. Piercing pain shot through him and beads of sweat dotted his forehead.
The crowd was shocked. Jin Lu was far too vicious. He had actually cut off Zhuo Hen’s hand!
A cold flash of light passed through Gu Tianyi’s eyes. The viciousness of Jin Lu enraged him.
“Zhuo Hen, you have lost!”
Jin Lu sneered and, before waiting for Zhuo Hen’s reply, he laughed out loud, “Haha. The men of the Eighth Prince are all just useless trash!”
