After recollecting himself, Yang Chen replied, “Didn’t I give you the scripture? Can’t you tell the difference between a genuine and a fake?”
Luo Qianqiu snorted. “We have plenty of cultivation techniques in our clan, more than anyone in the illusionary dimension. What you’ve given me is clearly the ‘Nine Level Xu Cultivation’! Do you think that I’m a fool!?”
Yang Chen was startled. Nine Level Xu Cultivation? What is that? Could it be the same as the Xiao clan’s Tianyuan Fragmented Scroll but with a different name? Damn it! Why is the “Endless Resolve Restoration Scripture” ubiquitous? Or could there be a special meaning behind it?
Knowing that Luo Qianqiu would not believe him, he did not bother to explain, nor was he interested in doing so.
Then, he looked behind Luo Qianqiu and locked his gaze on Luo Hang.
Even though he had never seen him before, Yang Chen recognized him from his ferocious expression and the position he stood at.
At that moment, Luo Hang was a dead person in his eyes.
Having sharp senses, Luo Qianqiu quickly realized where Yang Chen was looking. His face darkened, and he ordered, “Luo Hang, leave.”
Puzzled, Luo Hang wondered what his father meant by that.
“Hah, are you sure he can escape?”
As soon as those words left his lips, Yang Chen leaped up and dashed towards Luo Hang.
Only then did it dawn on the latter as he never expected Yang Chen to have the guts to kill him in the presence of so many cultivators and Luo Qianqiu.
Is he not afraid to die!?
Nonetheless, Yang Chen’s blood-curdling True Yuan oppression was way beyond his imagination. How did Xiao Zhiqing encounter such a maniac? He doesn’t seem older than me, so how did he gain such crowning cultivation? Is he already in the Tribulation Passing stage before he was born!?
Locked by Yang Chen’s divine sense, the petrified Luo Hang felt a chill run down his spine.
However, Luo Qianqiu already prepared a True Yuan shield to protect him, making the latter sigh in relief.
“How dare you ignore my words! Do you think that you’re a match against me with the Chaos Cauldron!?”
Luo Qianqiu sniggered. With a swing of his arm, a purple-red ball of light formed on his palm, and in the next instant, a crackling bolt of lightning slithered forward like a snake to strike Yang Chen.
“Who said that I’d be using the Chaos Cauldron!?”
As he had witnessed the power of the lightning, Yang Chen dared not face it with his body head-on. Swiftly, a swirl of purple fire was tossed towards the lightning.
As the purple fire was the combination of Li Fire and Kui Water, the lightning was shattered before it even reached Yang Chen.
Red and purple colored the sky, and the clash of True Yuan petrified the others.
Plenty of elders instinctively retreated a few hundred kilometers backward, for fear of getting hurt.
Yang Chen could originally use the Chaos Cauldron to fight Luo Qianqiu, but it was protecting Xiao Zhiqing, and he did not want someone else to ambush her while he was engaged in a battle.
Now that Luo Hang was right before him, he did not want to let go of the perfect opportunity to kill him, if not, it might be impossible to find him again.
In just one round, Yang Chen quickly realized Luo Qianqiu’s terrifying cultivation level. Technically, since he himself was in the Tai Qing Heavenly Lightning Full Cycle, Luo Qianqiu, who was at the pinnacle of the Ruo Water stage should not be his match.
Yet, the latter’s True Yuan was far more powerful than those in the Ruo Water stage.
Although Yang Chen’s purple fire was stronger than the purple-red lighting, it did not give him an upper hand as it was taken down eventually.
Seeing that, Luo Hang turned to flee.
“Don’t you dare!”
Naturally, Yang Chen would not give him the chance. With a swift rotation, he whipped out an even more horrifying blue fire dragon.
Luo Hang could never outrun Yang Chen. When he sensed the malice coming from behind him, he almost pissed himself.
However, Luo Qianqiu was also fast. Another purple-red lightning caught up and blocked the blue fire dragon.
A series of rumbles sounded, diminishing the power of the blue fire dragon. As if it was devoured by the lightning, the fire dragon soon slowed down.
That frustrated Yang Chen. Although the purple-red lighting was not very powerful, it had an odd True Yuan frequency that shattered his purple and blue fire, stopping them from causing any serious damage.
Nonetheless, he was not expecting the blue fire to hit Luo Hang. Right at that instant, he caught up to the latter and grabbed his nape.
“Your opponent is me!”
Luo Qianqiu was not slower as he appeared next to Yang Chen at the same time. The purple-red lightning crackled around him, and he threw an electric punch full of True Yuan towards Yang Chen’s head.
It was his first time encountering such a quick opponent. If he did not counter the attack or dodge, he would surely be hit!
Instead of feeling worried, Yang Chen was delighted.
“Nice! You’re the one who came to me!”
A ball of greyish white Ruo Water formed around him, it dashed toward Luo Qianqiu and Luo Hang in two streaks.
At such a close distance, it was hard to dodge them.
Luo Qianqiu seemed to have been taken by surprise, but he reacted swiftly and dodged it with a quick jump.
His movement was agile like a bolt of lighting.
Simultaneously, the purple-red lightning hit Yang Chen on the side.
Struck by it, Yang Chen flew back about fifty meters whilst the Ruo Water too dispersed.
Barely dodging the attack, Luo Hang’s face paled from terror. If he had touched one bit of the Ruo Water, he would have vanished completely.
Yang Chen shook with rage, for he never expected Luo Qianqiu’s lightning to not only have an odd vibration frequency but could also speed up. It was even faster than his Ruo Water, which caused his attack to miss his targets and also be struck by Luo Qianqiu.
His skin and muscles were sore all over, and that part of his shirt was torn. Fortunately, his physique was inhumane, so he was unscathed.
Turning to look back, he realized Luo Hang had seized the opportunity to escape. It was hard to catch up to him in a short time.
I let Luo Hang that bastard run out of my grasp!? Yang Chen’s eyes were ablaze with fury as murderous intent brimmed.
The Luo clan cultivators were watching with trepidation from afar. When they saw their patriarch had struck a blow on Yang Chen, they cheered loudly.
As for Luo Xiaoxiao, she sighed in relief when Luo Hang got away. A second later, she cast a worried gaze at Yang Chen, then an unfathomable gaze at her father. Her brows were furrowed, but she did not know what to do.
“Why? That is all you can do, yet you dare try to kill my son before me? You can’t even get out of here safely!” Luo Qianqiu sneered.
Yang Chen snorted. “That’s fine. I can kill you first, then that jerk son of yours!”
Having said that, he rushed toward Luo Qianqiu with blue and purple fire on both his hands.
Luo Qianqiu did not let his guard down, having the purple-red lightning revolve around him. One by one, they countered Yang Chen’s fires, seizing the opportunity to attack him.
Soon, networks of fire and lighting appeared mid-air. Waves of True Yuan would blast out occasionally, causing the cultivators with inferior cultivation levels to retreat further.
Yet, most of them chose to suppress their fear and pain to stay back, fascinated and envious of the fight between two cultivators above the Ruo Water stage.
Although Yang Chen’s purple and blue fires were far more powerful, they would still be struck by the countless bolts of lightning. Some of them even scattered around him, striking him from time to time. From the looks of it, it did not seem like he had the upper hand.
Xiao Zhiqing, who witnessed everything, felt a pang of heartache. All of sudden, as if reminded of something, she yelled toward the sky, “Hubby, be careful! That’s the Luo clan's most superior cultivation technique—‘Crossing Sky Purple Lightning’! A combination of metal and fire elements that can shatter almost any attack. Only a technique with extensive attack range can subdue it!”
Hearing her words, Yang Chen had an epiphany. So that’s it! I almost fell for this old guy’s trick!
