Chapter 95 – Taking Revenge
Translator: Mr Voltaire
“Brat, you’re actually not dead?” The 2 Scarlet Fire Gang elders walked over to Xiao Yun, looking at him with sinister gazes. After seeing the halberd in his hands, they said in a stern tone, “What is that weapon in your hands? Hurry up and give it to your elders to have a look.”
One of them was at the late stage of the True Essence realm, and the other was at the complete stage. They gave off powerful auras, their words full of condescension. As soon as they saw him, they demanded the spiritual armament in his hands, seeming incredibly arrogant.
Beside Xiao Yun, the snow-white little beast looked at Xiao Yun, as if it was waiting for Xiao Yun’s orders.
“Give it to you to have a look?” A cold smile appeared on Xiao Yun’s face as his eyes flashed. “Why should I?”
“Because we’re stronger than you,” one of the elders said as he coldly harrumphed. This was a middle-aged man who had thick eyebrows and large eyes, and looked quite fierce.
“Stronger than me?” A cold look appeared in Xiao Yun’s eyes, “I’ll give you a chance to leave. Otherwise, you’ll have to bear the consequences.”
Without any Essence Core realm experts present, Xiao Yun didn’t have to fear anyone. After all, he had quite a few trump cards now!
“Brat, you’re too arrogant. Your elder will show you the gap between us today.” The middle-aged man’s eyes shone coldly as his body trembled, a powerful aura sweeping out from him. He clenched his fists, and light gathered around them, as if starlight was gathering.
This punch was like a meteorite streaking across the sky, and caused the air to tremble, as if a real meteorite was really descending. As it flew towards Xiao Yun, it gave off the feeling that it could shake the heavens and earth, and gave off a fearsome might.
The man at the complete stage of the True Essence realm stood with his hands behind his back, coldly watching on. He was certain that the late stage True Essence realm cultivator would be more than enough to deal with this youth.
Xiao Yun’s eyes flashed as a powerful wave of spirit energy burst forth.
Suddenly, just as Xiao Yun was about to use the concealed weapon to deal with these 2 people, the snow-white little beast cried out, causing Xiao Yun to feel quite surprised.
The snow-white little beast jumped up and shot towards the meteorite-like punch like a snowball. When they saw this, even the Scarlet Fire Gang’s 2 True Essence realm cultivators felt dumbfounded.
They wondered, “What is this?”
As the 2 people stared in shock, the snow-white little beast suddenly slashed out with its paws, and a white claw-like light shot out like a sharp blade, tearing through the air towards the punch. Xiao Yun released his spirit energy, tightly keeping his eyes on that white light.
Under his observation, he could clearly see that the claw-like light was made up of numerous runes. Wherever it passed, the Heaven and Earth Essence Qi around it would collapse, and the True Essence realm expert’s attack was not able to resist it at all either.
The white light was completely unstoppable, and landed on the True Essence realm cultivator’s body like a sharp blade.
“Arghhh!” The True Essence realm cultivator screamed as he was sent flying back like a broken kite. Blood flowed out of his chest, revealing his white bones. Only when he fell to the ground did the other True Essence realm cultivator come to his senses.
The other True Essence realm cultivator was tall and powerfully-built. Shock appeared in his eyes as he stared at the snow-white little beast, muttering, “Was it this little thing that just attacked?” He felt completely flabbergasted – how could such a small and furry thing have such strength?
The snow-white little beast stared ahead ferociously, looking quite displeased at what it had just been called. It shot forwards like a bolt of lightning, moving its little paws as it rushed at the cultivator at the complete stage of the True Essence realm.
A white claw-like light tore through the air, creating ripples around it, as well as a mysterious aura. Those ripples seemed to be able to seal heaven and earth and lock space.
“What a strange aura.” The True Essence realm cultivator’s eyes glinted, not daring to be overconfident. As he moved his hands, a fiery True Essence swept out form his body, and was congealed into a gigantic magic seal.
Flaming Lion Seal!
As the man roared out, a gigantic fiery seal was created. It looked like a berserk lion, and gave off an incredibly scorching heat. If the sense of life it gave off was stronger, it really would seem as if a fiery lion was charging over.
This was an Earth grade Martial Skill, and was one of their Scarlet Fire Gang’s main skills.
“What a mysterious magic seal.” Xiao Yun’s gaze became serious, feeling that this fiery lion was quite extraordinary.
That Martial Skill was most likely incomplete, otherwise it would not only be this strong. Even so, it was still quite incredible.
In response, the snow-white little beast did not show any fear at all. It waved its little paws, destroying that magic seal. Following this, the sharp claw-like light flew towards the complete stage True Essence realm cultivator.
“Could its cultivation be at the Essence Core realm?!” The man was completely dumbfounded and hurriedly tried to block the attack, but could not withstand a single blow.
The snow-white little beast’s attacks were simply too profound, and seemed unstoppable. All attacks in front of it were completely useless.
The Scarlet Fire Gang’s elder’s pupils contracted, watching as this claw-like light tore towards him. He no longer had the ability to defend anymore. As the light landed on him, it was like a giant, formless claw that ripped apart his chest.
The man screamed as he flew backwards, landing on the ground heavily.
Now that both True Essence realm cultivators had been completely defeated, they lay on the ground, unable to move. After a few moments, both of them died.
The snow-white little beast’s attacks looked quite simple, but contained a profoundness within them. The strange ripples were able to completely break down the 2 people’s Essence Qi, then directly destroy their hearts, quickly killing them. Such an attack could shock anyone.
“So strong?” Seeing that the 2 True Essence realm cultivators could not retaliate at all, Xiao Yun felt incredibly shocked. He looked at the Heaven-Devouring Sparrow as he asked, “Could it really have Essence Core realm cultivation?” Otherwise, how could this little fellow be so powerful?
“It doesn’t.” The Heaven-Devouring Sparrow shook its head, as it stared at the snow-white little beast in front of it.
“How is that possible?” Xiao Yun looked quite confused. How could the little beast be so powerful if it wasn’t at the Essence Core realm?
The Heaven-Devouring Sparrow said, “It’s quite extraordinary. Its attacks contained a sense of profoundness that normal spiritual beasts don’t have. What’s more, I suspect it’s in a strange state right now, which is not as simple as the True Essence realm.” The Heaven-Devouring Sparrow’s words were quite vague, and it could not confirm either what sort of existence this snow-white little beast had.
However, Xiao Yun now knew that this little fellow could easily deal with cultivators at the complete stage of the True Essence realm.
“I’ve really picked up a treasure!” When he thought about that, Xiao Yun couldn’t help but smile. With the snow-white little beast by his side, he had yet another trump card that would make him more powerful.
The snow-white little beast ran over with a ‘whoosh’, continuously yelling out as it pointed at the 2 True Essence realm cultivators with its little paws, then at the space between Xiao Yun’s eyebrows, then finally at its little mouth. It seemed to be asking for a reward.
“What a little glutton!” Xiao Yun rolled his eyes, feeling that this little fellow had only acted because it wanted a reward.
However, seeing the anticipation in its eyes, Xiao Yun smiled and took out a Fire Essence Qi dewdrop and gave it to the little beast. If he didn’t give it some benefits, it wouldn’t help him in future.
When it saw the dewdrop, the snow-white little beast’s gemstone-like eyes lit up and it hurriedly devoured it. Its eyes narrowed in intoxication, looking like a child that had just tasted the most delicious food in the world.
“This little fellow’s too self-interested.” By the side, the Heaven-Devouring Sparrow rolled its eyes. The little fellow gulped down a mouthful of saliva, a look of intoxication on its face. Those dewdrops were incredibly rare treasures to it!
“Lil Yun, can you give me another one?” The Heaven-Devouring Sparrow gave a flattering smile as it gulped down another mouthful of saliva.
“Sure, after you take care of a powerful enemy for me,” Xiao Yun laughed as he shrugged.
“You’re so heartless,” the Heaven-Devouring Sparrow said condescendingly.
“You think I’m that easy to convince?” Xiao Yun said as he smiled.
“Alright, just you wait. This Lord won’t disappoint you.” The Heaven-Devouring Sparrow’s eyes became serious as it glared at the snow-white little beast, thinking to itself, “Next time, I won’t let you act first. If I knew this would happen, I wouldn’t have let Lil Yun accept this little fellow.”
“Ai,” the Heaven-Devouring Sparrow sighed. Why did it have to create a competitor for itself?
In just a few breaths of time, the snow-white little beast had refined that dewdrop, and continuously called out to Xiao Yun, asking for more.
“Be good, I’ll give you more in future,” Xiao Yun smiled as he stroked the little beast’s head.
The little beast continuously nodded, as if it was saying that it would definitely keep fighting bad guys for Xiao Yun in future. Xiao Yun also nodded.
Now, it seemed that his Martial Spirit was quite extraordinary. The dewdrops it condensed were even more powerful than those miracle medicines, and even such a powerful beast would desire it so greatly. Evidently, this jade branch Martial Spirit was not ordinary at all.
“Trash Martial Spirit?” Thinking back to what others had said about his Martial Spirit in the past, he couldn’t help but smile.
This ‘trash Martial Spirit’ had continuously developed, and if it continued growing like this, it would one day become a peerless Martial Spirit that would shake the world. However, Xiao Yun still did not know just what sort of Martial Spirit it was.
After getting rid of the 2 people from the Scarlet Fire Gang, Xiao Yun started to search their bodies.
Flaming Lion Seal!
After a while, he found a Martial Skill book on the complete stage True Essence realm cultivator’s body. It turned out that the Martial Skill was not incomplete – rather, it required True Fire to completely reveal its might.
That Scarlet Fire Gang elder only had affinity with Fire Essence Qi, but did not have sufficient talent to condense his own True Fire. If he had a Fire Martial Spirit with his powerful cultivation, the magic seal’s power would have greatly increased.
“Now that my Violet Flame Martial Spirit has become stronger, I should be able to learn this magic seal,” Xiao Yun said in delight.
Even though the Firecloud Palms’ strength was not bad, in the end, it was just a Black grade Martial Skill, and was not enough when fighting against powerful enemies. With this Earth grade Martial Skill, he would not suffer when facing such enemies.
Apart from this Martial Skill book, neither person had anything valuable on them. As such, Xiao Yun held the halberd as he continued through the ruins, looking for other treasure.
