Yue Ling was very protective of his son. He had already given advance orders for people to wait to rescue his son.
Upon seeing Yue Yan’s shield disappear, they were to go up immediately and rescue him.
The Barbaric Cow Shadow did not care about anyone who came up. She bombarded them regardless with her gigantic fists, indiscriminately hitting everything around her like the rain. The Clan Guard, who went up first to try and rescue Yue Yan, could not dodge as he was blocked by the others behind. As a result, he was sent flying by a punch, crying out pitifully as he was thrown more than ten metres backwards. Another Clan Guard was crafty and made use of a flying beast. He leapt in quickly and took Yue Yan. However, before he could even feel pleased with himself, he was surprised by the Bloody Queen that arrived at lightning speed to intercept him in midair.
The Crescent Blade in the Bloody Queen’s hands whirled like the wind…
Wherever the Crescent Blade passed, without caring if it was the flying Battle Eagle or the Clan Guard, or whether the Clan Guard was carrying Yue Yan or not, they would receive bloody injuries, their blood splattering into the air.
In the end, Yue Ling had to come forward personally and use his iron arm to forcefully block the Crescent Blade, thereby rescuing his son.
He coldly snorted and a strange black light flashed in his right hand.
The Bloody Queen immediately flapped her wings and flew back. She was incomparably agile, flying into the air to distance herself from the sinister Yue Ling.
Yue Ling discovered that his son was covered with injuries and was beyond furious. He glared at Yue Yang, but that brat only assumed an “I don’t know anything” look of innocence, causing him to almost explode in anger.
Under the attention of the masses, Yue Ling could not openly attack Yue Yang. He could only swallow his hatred and proceeded to carry the seriously injured Yue Yan off the stage, returning to where the rest of the clansmen were.
As for the big uncle Yue Shan, who wanted to maintain his position and refused to act to save his son, a smile remained on his face. It was as though whether his son lived or died had nothing to do with him.
As soon as another Clan Guard carried off the unconscious Yue Tian, the Barbaric Cow Shadow chased after them, hitting out with her fist. The Clan Guard was heavily injured and had almost fractured his spine. The fainted Yue Tian, upon receiving such a huge impact from the attack, spewed blood and probably sustained heavy trauma. It was fortunate that the Clan Guard, who possessed a strengthening-type beast, had sacrificed himself to protect him. If not, Yue Tian’s life would have definitely ended then and there. The injured Clan Guard miserably fell off the stage, while his partner hurriedly fled for his life, leaving his Iron-Tailed Crocodile behind as an obstruction.
The Iron-Tailed Crocodile lifted its long tail, preparing itself to strike at the Barbaric Cow Shadow with all its might. It wanted to meet force with force to prevent her pursuit.
Unknowingly, Yue Yang’s position had risen by a large degree that very day.
The Barbaric Cow Shadow’s nose blazed, and the red light in its eyes emerged again. The Iron-Tailed Crocodile, which was famed for its iron tail and bite, was instantly killed, just like the other beasts.
A huge battle also erupted on the other side between Yue Ting and Yue Bing.
Yue Ting had initially wanted to go over to help save his older brother, but Yue Bing watched him continuously. She also wanted to help her own brother, even if it was just a little. Thus, as soon as Yue Ting moved, she controlled her Hundred Year Old Treant Defender to attack him.
The two siblings had met their adversaries and were evenly matched in power.
Yue Ting, who possessed the strengthening-type Violent Bear, had thick skin and thick flesh, which made him unafraid of getting hit. The Hundred Year Old Treant Defender was likewise a valiant beast that could sweep across battlefields, and wasn’t the least afraid of head-on battles. Moreover, it had its coiling roots and brambles for support. Yue Bing saw that she could not subdue her fifth brother Yue Ting and summoned another Hundred Year Old Treant Defender to join the fight, turning the slightly disadvantaged situation around.
The audience watched as the two Hundred Year Old Treant Defender used their brambles and coiling roots to bind the bear-transformed Yue Ting. They then waved their four tree limbs and viciously pounded.
Although the bear-transformed Yue Ting felt pain, he was not injured. He also waved his bear paws and madly counterattacked.
In the end, this battle had turned into a wild wrestle of strength.
While the fifth brother Yue Ting fought using his own body, seventh sister Yue Bing on the contrary fought by controlling the Hundred Year Old Treant Defenders. Both sides were confronting each other unyieldingly, with the intention of thoroughly defeating each other.
The strength of both siblings, Yue Ting and Yue Bing, had little difference and was difficult to discern in such a short period. At the moment, Yue Bing had a slight upperhand. However, wanting to quickly defeat the bear-transformed Yue Ting, who possessed boundless strength, was probably difficult.
“We’re coming too.”
Xue Tan Lang had stored up his power for a long time and summoned a Level 4 Silver-ranked Storm Giant.
The Storm Giant’s upper half was like a living being, while its lower half was a tornado which was turning at an unusually fast speed. The stone surface of the stage was cut apart by the Storm Giant’s tornado lower half. Deep indentation marks as if it was slashed by sharp blades appeared on the stone surface.
Xue Tan Lang was the one Yue Yang did not want to fight the most. Unless Yue Yang used his full strength, it would be difficult to kill him off.
Furthermore, this brat was most definitely the future clan leader of the Xue Clan. If he was killed, the whole Xue Clan would probably come after his life. Fighting him had absolutely no benefits and was simply asking for trouble.
Yue Yang was prepared to use some shameless methods. When the Storm Giant arrived in front of him, he would just jump off the stage and directly concede. Anyway, the people he wanted to oppress was not Xue Tan Lang, but Yue Tian and Yue Yan. Since their beasts were already destroyed and they had been beaten to the point of having heavy injuries and were vomiting blood, there was nothing else that could be done at this point. They could be spared for now so that he could slowly oppress them in the future. There would be plenty of opportunities ahead, and Yue Tian and Yue Yan would definitely vomit blood and die… As for Xue Tan Lang, who cares about him? Yue Yang was too lazy to fight against this battle hungry guy. Why should he fight it out with him when he could save the energy to slowly train the Bloody Queen?
Just when Yue Yang was about to concede, a golden light shot towards the stage.
There was a loud sound and the whole place shook.
Yue Yang composed himself and looked, but he could not refrain from feeling faint.
The person that arrived was the royal swordswoman, decked in armor. She drew the large golden sword from her back, and heroically shouted at Yue Yang: “ I just heard that you, the little liar, had some good skills. I made an oversight last time. Come let’s have a battle”
“….” When Yue Yang heard it, he rolled his eyes. He thought to himself that this royal sister should explore bedding techniques with him if she had nothing better to do. Why would she ask for a fight?
The royal swordswoman had a lovable yet explosive voice.
The large sword flickered, and a golden light flashed like an exploding sun.
Xue Tan Lang’s Storm Giant had previously frozen over the entire stage. However, the flames from the royal swordswoman’s sword instantly thawed half the arena.
Around the royal swordswoman, snow melted and began to emit steam.
The large sword was like a burning sun, shooting rays that made people unable to open their eyes. On the other side, Xue Tan Lang’s Storm Giant did not show any signs of weakening, continuing to spin around in wind and snow. Together with the blazing large sword of the royal swordswoman, the entire stage was half cold and half hot, which was a sight to marvel. Only the small area around with Yue Yang in the centre was somewhat different.
“Little liar, what are you waiting for? I will go all out for real once I start and won’t hold back against you.” Upon saying this, she did not care if Yue Yang agreed or not and directly pressed forward.
“I didn’t even provoke you two, but both of you just want to make me angry.” Yue Yang became furious and agitated, while his killing intentions began to arise madly.
The Hui Jin magic blade in his hand was raised. Under the prompting of his innate qi, the energies of the demon dragon’s crystal and the molten core condensed as a deep golden flame. They ignited on the magic blade, extending outwards by more than a metre.
Flaming remnants swept across the stage, splitting the stone slabs like tofu being cut up by a knife.
Black smoke arose.
At the edges of the blade marks were traces of burning and corrosion.
Normal warriors would not be able to see it, but rankers like Jun Wu You and elder Yue Hai could discern it clearly.
The two people were excited. The kid’s magic blade was also a treasure and furthermore, its strength could instantly be increased by several times under his control. It looks like this kid had an extremely effective control of “Qi” and was not simply a “trash who bullied his family” that only possessed a Gold King Beast. He was actually a hidden physical technique practitioner genius that had been secretly cultivating for more than ten years. Without more than ten years of consistent cultivation, it would be impossible to adeptly control “Qi” like this. Could it be that this kid had a ranker behind him that had been secretly instructing him from young?
Maybe his father Yue Qiu had really not died?
The two exchanged a glance and had the same suspicion in their hearts.
Not only Jun Wu You and elder Yue Hai had this thought. Even Yue Shan, Yue Ling, Feng Xiao Yun, and Feng Kuang, as well as the others, held similar suspicions.
Without a ranker instructing and supporting him, this trashy guy would definitely not be able to succeed on his own. Furthermore, the technique used to control the energy was definitely not something that a trash that recently contracted with a grimoire could possess… This could only mean that this kid had always been secretly cultivating. He had already been a ranker for a long time, but pretended to be a foolish and pathetic person that anyone could bully. Even when the whole world was mocking him, he had continued to conceal his abilities.
As Yue Shan and Yue Ling thought about how their nephew had the patience and tolerance, as well as possessing such wisdom, they could not help but shiver.
Could it be that he knew of the truth behind certain things?
So this kid had always been storing this strength in secret, waiting for an opportunity to take revenge?
“To prevent any accidental injuries, everyone please leave the practice grounds and proceed to a safe place.” Elder Yue Hai saw the true situation, but he did not prevent it. He only shouted at the clansmen and ordered them to keep away. In fact, even before he ordered, the clansmen and the other family representatives had already started to scamper away in fright. They did not dare to stay near that terrifying and murderous area for a moment more.
“Not bad, it’s been long since I last saw such an exciting battle.” Jun Wu You remained leisurely and contented in his seat.
Aside from Jun Wu You, elder Yue Hai, Yue Shan, Yue Ling, Feng Xiao Yun, Feng Kuang, Yan Po Jun’s father Yan Qian Zhong, Ku Ming Elder of the Southern Mountain Floating Mist sect who was in charge of training Yue Feng, the Xue Clan’s representative Xue Wen Dao, and other rankers of the [Elder] rank and above, none could stay seated and remain safe.
Even Level 5 [Grandmaster] levelled rankers all stood up and took guard, to prevent being accidentally hurt by the three people, who could erupt into a huge battle at anytime.
To the west, Xue Tan Lang had frozen the west side of the stage into a frozen hell.
To the east, the royal swordswoman had turned her side into flames. With the royal swordsman large sword blazing like an intense sun, everything it passed was ignited into flames. The two siblings Yue Ting and Yue Bing saw that it was not a good situation and coincidentally stopped to leave the area, so as not to affect Yue Yang. In the centre of the stage, under the intense pressure from both sides, Yue Yang suddenly had a sudden comprehension and closed his eyes. He cut at the surroundings with the Hui Jin magic blade, initially at a fast pace, but gradually rotating slower and more circularly.
Every time he rotated, his actions became more and more perfect.
The initial feeling he gave at first was that his rotations were conscious and deliberate actions.
However, Jun Wu You and elder Yue Hai gradually discovered that this kid had improved in battle. He seemed to comprehend something and improved. His deliberate actions became more gentle and slow, finally becoming too wonderful for words, giving off a feeling that was like melding with the heavens.
The rotations were in agreement with heaven and earth.
It was like the wind in the air or the clouds in the sky, naturally beautiful and formless while being without motive or intention. It was so natural, as if his movements were made by the heavens.
Yue Yang felt that he could comprehend the true essence soon, but it still lacked a little. The feeling was like seeing a naked young beautiful girl running ahead of him, and he was a hair’s breadth away from catching her, but she was dodging agilely away from being pushed down… Yue Yang felt that he had to fight in a proper battle in order to truly comprehend; he needed to grow in battle. He thus decided to have a big battle with the royal swordswoman and Xue Tan Lang. Anyway, this battle could not be avoided, so why not let it make it a battle where he could use to train himself.
The guy who came from a different world suppressed his impatience, controlling the magic blade with even more patience. With his innate qi, he created a ball of flame and a ball of black gas, allowing them to beautifully revolve and mix with each other. They formed two incomparably beautiful semicircles and intertwined, appearing like a flaming fish and a devilish fish swimming together. All the flames or cold air in the surrounding air was swallowed by this “Twin Fish Circle”.
The thing that also surprised Yue Yang greatly was indeed the profoundness of his recent comprehension…
The Storm Giant and the royal swordswoman performed a pincer attack. The sudden attack from both sides caused the Twin Fish Circle, which was slow moving and beautiful beyond words balancing the attacks from two sides, to suddenly shoot out in all direction without any warning.
The royal swordswoman somersaulted more than ten times before landing easily on the stage.
She had a startled expression on her face. This was the first time in her life that she had been sent flying before even coming into contact with the opponent’s weapon.
The Storm Giant was in an even more disorderly state. Its strength was completely diverted and it lost its balance, falling onto the stage with a loud boom. It lifted up mud, bricks, countless tables and chairs with its tornado, then clumsily fell more than ten meters away before barely collecting itself.
Xue Tan Lang felt fearful.
He thought that it would make sense if this ingenious rebounding strength knocked away normal warriors.
But his Storm Giant was made of elemental energy and was not even corporeal, so how could it be rebounded? And how could the rebound strength be so intense?
“What a good kid. Who knows if this skill was his own comprehension or imparted by an expert, but these two Yin and Yang fishes are really a wonder.” Jun Wu You slapped the table in praise.
“This is truly a miraculous technique that can neutralize the energy of any strong enemies. Wonderful.” The Ku Ming Elder that had not opened his eyes nor said a word throughout the whole battle, suddenly revealed an odd light in his eyes and nodded in praise. He was Yue Feng’s instructor from the Southern Mountain Floating Mist Sect and was an [Elder] ranked individual.
“I am also currently unable to unravel this.” The Imperial Guard Commander Feng Kuang, who had the title of “Thousand Withering Bones”, also spoke for the first time. He also felt that he could not understand the battle’s situation as it was too complex.
“This is definitely not Yue Qiu’s sword technique…” Yan Clan’s substitute clan head Yan Qian Zhong, Xue Wen Dao, and Feng Xiao Yun exchanged glances, with hints of jealousy in their eyes. The geniuses in the Yue Clan were far too many. With these techniques that nobody recognized, no matter if they were secretly imparted by Yue Qiu, or comprehended on his own by this little lunatic, this kid was already a universally shocking genius. It looked like after Yue Qiu, another combat genius had appeared. Without having to wait for too many years, a second Yue Qiu would appear in the Yue Clan.
Yue Yang was not inferior in any way to Yue Qiu back then.
The trash Third Young Master, that the world had ridiculed, was actually a true genius that had even surpassed his father.
“Interesting. It looks like I have to use my beasts as well.” The royal swordswoman raised her large sword, shouting with a high intention to battle.
“Qian Qian, don’t fool around.” Jun Wu You spurted tea when he heard her.
“Princess Qian Qian, Please do not summon your beasts here. The three of you go out and stop fighting here. If not, then the entire Yue Clan’s home will be torn down by you three.” As soon as elder Yue Hai heard that the royal swordswoman wanted to summon her beasts, he hurriedly stood up and shouted to stop them. He wanted the three of them to fight outside of the Yue Clan Castle, and not at the grounds within the castle.
“Eh?” Yue Yang felt curious. What kind of beast could this royal swordswoman possibly have, that was so fierce to even make Jun Wu You and elder Yue Hai to be so worried?
