The Strongest Dan God Chapter 177 – Retreat.
Translated by: Andy
Xiao Ying’s eyes turned red. Punch after punch. Strike after strike. He furiously attacked the invisible wall.
It seems likemYe Zifeng didn’t plan on fighting Xiao Ying face to face at all.
It’s not that Ye Zifeng can’t win but there was no need to waste his energy on someone like Xiao Ying.
Fighting against someone in the 9th stage of qi refining will use up a lot of energy and isn’t easy at all. It wasn’t worth it.
“Great. There’s plenty of qi now. I guess that it’s finally time.”
Ye Zifeng looked up and smiled.
Everything was planned by Ye Zifeng since last night. He had another purpose for absorbing the qi from his opponent.
“It’s finally time? What do you mean?” Xiao Ying stared at Ye Zifeng in confusion.
“Well…. Thanks to you guys, the true path to the Blazing Eagle’s nest has finally appeared.”
“What?! What do you mean?” Xiao Ying felt his entire body go limp.
Ye Zifeng was able to find the entrance to the Blazing Eagle’s nest but lacked the strength the open the true path. After borrowing the qi from the Xiao and Rong clan members, he was finally able to open the path.
“The answer lies in the Qi absorbing formation. Every time you used your qi to attack, the formation will absorb a part of it and allow me to use it. So….I should be saying thanks. Without all of you, I would not have been able to open the true path to the Blazing Eagle’s nest.”
“So you’re saying that we’ve been doing work for you this entire time?” Xiao Ying forced a smile on his face.
“Well… If you want to see it that way…. Yes.”
Ye Zifeng cupped his hands and bowed towards Xiao Ying. He respected Xiao Ying for being able to keep his composure after learning about everything.
Xiao Ying sighed. He felt as if the blood in his entire body was flowing backwards. His head felt numb.
When he heard about Ye Zifeng from Xiao Mu, he blamed Xiao Mu for being too weak. But now, he finally understood everything. It wasn’t that Xiao Mu was weak but that Ye Zifeng was too strong.
However, no matter how strong the opponent is, he won’t hold back his burning desire to fight against them.
“Ye Zifeng, I am going to skin you alive right now!”
“Then break the formation and come over.” Ye Zifeng smiled and nonchalantly replied.
“You!” If Xiao Ying continues to attack the formation, then all of his qi will get sucked away.
To Xiao Ying, he’d rather die than help Ye Zifeng. His fist stopped in mid air. He wants to try and break the formation but he doesn’t want to get his qi sucked away. All he could do was angrily stare at Ye Zifeng.
“Now now. Calm down. I believe we can come to an agreement.” Ye Zifeng spoke out of nowhere.
Xiao Ying thought that Ye Zifeng was trying to piss him off even more and was prepared for it. However, contrary to his expectations, Ye Zifeng wanted to make a deal.
He cleared his throat and looked at Ye Zifeng.
“What do you want? Just say it.”
Ye Zifeng revealed a slick smile, “It’s simple. I want you to use your identity as the leader to make everyone from the Xiao clan leave by using their life saving medallion.”
Xiao Ying gasped. He was startled for a while before returning back to his senses.
“Bullshit! Do you know what you’re saying? Your so call deal is just asking me to get my underlings to leave?”
Ye Zifeng shook his head, “Young master Xiao, don’t be so impatient. I’m not done talking yet. I’ll give you the giant python’s monster core in return. I’ll even personally give it to you.”
Hearing that Ye Zifeng was willing to personally give him the monster core, Xiao Ying started to think.
“What? It’s fine if you don’t want it. This thing isn’t that useful to me anyways. It also takes up room in my interspatial ring. I might as well smash it.”
“Don’t Don’t Dont….. Please don’t! About giving me the monster core…. Are you serious? You won’t go back on your word?” Xiao Ying’s eyes were wide open as he looked at Ye Zifeng.
“If you don’t believe me, I can make a blood oath. If you want to more insurance, I can sign a blood contract with you.” Ye Zifeng smiled brightly.
A strange smile then appeared on his face, “Think about it. The more people there are, the less reward you get. If you can kick them all out, you can get 3x the rewards by yourself. Isn’t that much better?”
“Three times the reward…….”
Ye Zifeng wasn’t wrong….. But even if Xiao Ying gets 3x the reward, he can’t compare to the 6x reward the Ye Zifeng’s group gets.
Xiao Ying’s expression sank. He was in a dilemma.
“Okay. I’ll try it. But we’re signing a blood contract as insurance.”
Ye Zifeng laughed, “Deal. I’ll give you the monster core and you get your people to leave.”
After a while, the blood contract was completed.
“I can do what you want me to do, but, I can’t guarantee that they will listen to me.” He looked at Ye Zifeng and forced a smile.
“Don’t underestimate yourself. At least, in the Xiao clan, your voice has some authority to it.” Ye Zifeng nodded at Xiao Ying.
Ye Zifeng wasn’t trying to flattering him. For a low level family like the Xiao clan, to have someone in the younger generation reach the 9th stage of qi refining is considered very good already.
He was the hope of the entire Xiao Clan. He will take over as the head of the clan sooner or later so naturally, the younger generation of the Xiao clan will listen to him.
“Okay. Don’t forget about your part of the deal. You have to give me the monster core.” Xiao Ying stared at Ye Zifeng.
Ye Zifeng nodded.
With Ye Zifeng’s help, Xiao Ying’s voice passed through the formation and resounded throughout the entire area.
“Everyone in the Xiao clan. As the young master of the Xiao clan, I command you to use your life saving medallion !”
All of the Xiao clan members felt as if lightning had struck their body.
Their one and only hope……
Xiao Mu was standing in front of Liu Yige when the voice entered his ears. He thought that he was hallucinating.
“It seems like your ray of hope can’t do anything either.”
Liu Yige heard this and his admiration for Ye Zifeng grew stronger. He didn’t know how Ye Zifeng did this, but he knew that Ye Zifeng had succeeded.
At the same time, Xiao Ying voice sounded again.
“Anyone who disobeys will be punished by family laws. Do you all understand!”
In this kind of situation, if everyone else was together, they can at least discuss it. But, they were all spread out and trapped in a formation. They don’t know what was happening outside at all.
When they felt that all hope was lost, Xiao Ying’s words were like a light that guided them.
But this light was guiding them down the wrong path. But Xiao Ying said that this was his command.
Compared to the mission, obeying Xiao Ying was much more important.
Everyone in the Xiao clan gritted their teeth as then use their qi to activate the life saving medallion.
Rays of light appeared where the Xiao clan members stood. In the blink of an eye, they disappeared.
At the entrance of the Scarlet Blood Valley.
“Elder Shen, which group do you think used the life saving medallions first?”
The elders were feeling bored as they laughed and asked.
“Stop bothering me. Don’t you see that I’m busy?” Elder Shen frowned.
“Busy? Aren’t you sleeping with your eyes closed?”
The elders looked at each other in confusion.
“Alright. Let’s not bother with him. We can make bets. I bet that it’s the Ye clan’s people!”
One of the elders laughed, “Elder Lin, really? What’s there to bet? The Ye clan only has ten people in total and they don’t have anyone in the 9th stage of qi refining either. Who else can it be?”
“Look, they’re coming out.”
Behind them, rays of white light appeared.
