When Zou Ping and the others saw Zi Yuan, all of their hands immediately reached for their chests. They grabbed their powerful magical weapons and glared at them like tigers watching their prey. Their entire bodies were covered with Zhenqi.
Wang Lingfei also looked at Zi Yuan with a brilliant light glittering in his eyes. He slowly said, "Zhenren Zi Yuan really has a well-deserved reputation. Such a goddess is worthy of admiration!"
Zi Yuan looked at him blandly, then smiled and said, "This brother in Tao must be Wang Lingfei, otherwise known as Zhenren Yuquan?"
Wang Lingfei smiled and said, "I don't deserve such a title. I rarely leave the cultivation world. Have you heard my name, Zhenren Zi Yuan?"
Zi Yuan smiled faintly. "It's said that there are only two disciples of the younger generation in the Zhengyi School that can be called masters. One is Zhang Tianhe, and the other is Wang Lingfei. Since Zhenren Yuquan is so famous, how could I not know of him?"
Wang Lingfei had high self-esteem. After being praised by Zi Yuan, he suddenly felt a wave of smugness wash over him. He laughed and said, "You flatter me. You are also a backbone of the Linggong Sect. Why are you going along with the evil Fox Zen School?"
Zou Ping sneered as well. "Zi Yuan, You should think about this carefully. This is the last time I'll remind you: don't get involved with the Fox Zen School. Otherwise, Zhengyi School will view you as traitors!"
At this moment, Ruan Hongling also came over and retorted with a sneer, refusing to show weakness, "Are you saying that we are traitors? How arrogant! Who do you think you are? The Taoist priest of Zhengyi School?"
A spark appeared in Zou Ping's eyes the moment her gaze fell upon Ruan Hongling. She gritted her teeth and said, "It's you again. Don't think you can be arrogant just because you're sharp-tongued. I..."
Ruan Hongling interrupted, "Huh? I never rely on my eloquence. I'm always reasonable! Every time I scold you, you have no way to refute me. That's because you're always being unreasonable! If you were right, I wouldn't be able to make you speechless even if I had a hundred mouths."
Zou Ping was furious. "How can I be unreasonable? How can you be reasonable? Don't tell me that you are reasonable when you hang around with such wicked, evil people. Nonsense!"
Ruan Hongling snorted and said, "Evil people? I used to think that the disciples of Fox Zen School were evil, but after getting along with them recently, I've come to feel that they are no different from others, and perhaps even more lovely than most of the people in the world! Instead, some of my so-called peers are aggressive and want to send us to Linggong Sect to meet with a dead end! In my view, you are the real evil!"
Ruan Hongling's words were as sharp as daggers. Zou Ping's face turned pale with anger, and her lips trembled. Wang Lingfei and the other disciple of the Zhengyi School also paled.
Zi Yuan was similarly shocked. She shouted, "Hongling, do not talk rubbish!"
Ruan Hongling had been holding back her anger for a long time. She shouted at Zi Yuan, "Sister Zi Yuan, why are you still being so polite to them? No matter where we retreat, they'll chase after us! Do you think they're here to invite us back? Can we really solve this problem if we just let it go?"
Ruan Hongling's eyebrows rose as she yelled at Zou Ping and the others, "If you guys have the guts to fight with us right here, then I'll consider you guys to be truly domineering! If you don't have the guts, then get lost! I can't bear to look at a bunch of b*stards like you!"
Zou Ping was furious. She glared at Hongling, and a bolt of lightning seemed to shoot from her eyes in an angry flash. "You think I wouldn't dare?"
Wang Lingfei also scolded her, "Who do you think you are? How dare you talk to us like this!"
After that, Wang Lingfei rushed forward and grabbed Ruan Hongling's shoulder, wanting to teach her a lesson.
But as soon as Wang Lingfei made his move, Zi Yuan shouted, "Stop!"
With a flip of her hand, her fingers also aimed for Wang Lingfei's wrist. Zou Ping and a short, fat disciple beside her shouted at the same time, and they attacked the vital part of Zi Yuan together.
Zou Ping's fingers were like hooks, and her fingers were bent in the shape of an eagle's claw. Once she had been caught by her fingers, not only would Zi Yuan's meridians be suppressed, but even her wrists could end up broken.
The other short, fat disciple took a step forward. He held one hand in front of his chest with his palms facing up, as if he were holding an invisible iron tower. He was ready to attack, while the other hand was being held deceptively. This pose was similar to tiger claws. As long as the hand touched the body, it could take a large piece of skin and flesh, but at a glance, it was also like a crane. He gathered his fingers, and with a light tap, he could hit the human body's vital acupoints, hurting the enemy invisibly.
Zi Yuan frowned. She knew that if she was going to save Ruan Hongling, she would not be able to protect herself. If she could protect herself, she would not be able to save Ruan Hongling.
Thinking through the dilemma, Zi Yuan suddenly heard a familiar voice coming from beside her. "Are you going to bully those two with three people?"
The voice faded and Zi Yuan saw a left hand being wrung forcefully. This arm was like a fierce dragon crossing a river, parting the waters. The arm pressed against Zou Ping's finger, causing her to immediately feel a majestic and vigorous load of Zhenqi rushing towards her like a tsunami. She was so shocked that she immediately pulled back.
The short, fat disciple of the Zhengyi School took a deep breath, and his whole person swelled up like a balloon. Instead of retreating, his hands went up to intercept the punch.
Meanwhile, Wang Lingfei had seen a figure suddenly appear in the middle of them. The man's right hand was doing Lotus boxing, his index finger rising and his upper joint slightly curving like a hook. At the same time, the man shouted, "Hon!"
It was the Mahamudra of Taicang Buddha!
Wang Lingfei saw that the man who had just appeared attacked first. If he retreated, not only would his momentum be weakened, but he might also be injured by the man, so he simply threw a palm at him.
This battle was moving so quickly that even Zi Yuan could only see shadows flashing past. Following which, a series of puffing sounds could be heard as Zou Ping flew back. Wang Lingfei clashed head-on with Mahamudra, and Wang Lingfei's face immediately turned scarlet, as if his blood was about to burst out. He stood rooted to the spot without moving, speechless. As for the short, fat disciple of the Zhengyi School, he didn't make a sound as his body flew backward and he slammed into the street wall, causing the passers-by to exclaim in shock. Their gazes all turned in unison to stare at them.
At this time, Zi Yuan realized that the person standing in front of her was Li Yundong. His back was like an iron tower as he stood still and proud, as if not even a mighty storm could knock him down.
Li Yundong's slender body stood among them. White Qi was rising from the top of his head. One of his hands was maintaining the handprint of Mahamudra, while the other arm had several holes in it. Obviously, the short, fat disciple of Zhengyi School had just scratched Li Yundong's clothes and been sent flying.
Zi Yuan knew that Li Yundong's Zhenqi was extremely dense and concentrated. He quickly intervened and caused the three disciples of the Zhengyi School to suffer a great loss.
Wang Lingfei's face rapidly changed color from red to white, and then from white to red. After several moments, he breathed a sigh of relief. He looked at Li Yundong with a mixture of surprise and uncertainty and said, "Who are you? Who is your master?"
Li Yundong snorted. "None of your business!"
Wang Lingfei was shocked and said, "I see your Zhenqi and kung fu skills of the Xuanmen Sect. Why are you opposing Zhengyi School?"
After helping up her junior brother who had been sent flying by Li Yundong, Zou Ping shouted before Li Yundong could answer, "He is Li Yundong, the one who forced his way up through his own depravity and by making use of the Fox Zen School!"
Wang Lingfei was shocked again. He took a step back and looked Li Yundong up and down seriously. He put on a dignified air and said, "So you are Li Yundong?"
Li Yundong saluted with one fist and said, "Yes, I am Li Yundong. Do you have any questions for me?"
Wang Lingfei took a deep breath, his eyes narrowed. "No wonder my fellow student Zhang Tianhe was defeated by you. I heard that you have studied the Heavenly Jindan Technique. Is that true?" he asked.
Li Yundong hadn't expected to encounter this upon his return. When he heard the man asking about the whereabouts of the Heavenly Jindan Technique, he was both shocked and unhappy. He snorted and didn't answer. Instead, he asked, "So, have you come to fight for your fellow student? Alright, one by one or all together?"
Wang Lingfei had thought that he was already arrogant enough, but Li Yundong was even more arrogant than him. He was so agitated by Li Yundong that he forgot the whereabouts of the Heavenly Jindan Technique. He snorted and said, "It's rumored that Zhenren Li is unruly and unrestrained. Now I see you are worthy of your reputation."
The corner of Li Yundong's mouth twitched, a faint sneer hanging on his lips. "I have heard that the Zhengyi School is overbearing and aggressive. Seeing you today, it seems that you also deserve the reputation!"
Seeing that Li Yundong was also sharp-tongued, Wang Lingfei's face changed and he shouted, "Li Yundong, don't be so complacent. Your Fox Zen School... our sect can crush it at will!"
Li Yundong laughed and said, "I'm afraid of everything, the heavens, the earth, and my wife, but I'm not afraid of your pathetic threats! Are you threatening me?"
By this time, all the disciples of Fox Zen School had also gathered around. Although there were not many of them, they vastly outnumbered Zou Ping and the other two. Moreover, they were so beautiful that they could attract endless attention just by standing on the street. After a moment, the crowd had once again surrounded the place tightly.
Zou Ping looked around and whispered to Wang Lingfei, "Shishiong, a wise man knows better than to fight when the odds are against him. Let's leave now. Sooner or later, we'll get revenge."
Wang Lingfei had seen Li Yundong grinding the green bricks with his palms like they were lumps of flour before. The fight just now had also been won with Li Yundong's powerful Zhenqi. He was speechless, while Li Yundong could speak with ease and there was no obstacle for him at all.
Needless to say, it was easy to know whose Zhenqi and Cultivation Quotient was superior!
Wang Lingfei was well aware of this. He knew that if he did not have a powerful magical weapon with which to settle the score with the man in front of him, he would lose. He thought to himself, "My two magic weapons won't be refined until next month. Why should I fight with this person until then?"
Wang Lingfei also had thoughts of leaving, so he nodded. Zou Ping laughed grimly at Li Yundong and said, "Li Yundong, I know that your Cultivation Quotient is incredible, but no matter how powerful you are, you still won't be able to defeat everyone in the whole world. Do you really think you'll be able to fend off the siege of all the cultivation sects by yourself?"
"I, Li Yundong, have never relied on my fists to handle things. I rely on my own uprightness and stability. As the saying goes, a clean hand requires no soap. I don't believe that all the cultivation sects in the world will take personal revenge on me and be aggressive like you!" Li Yundong replied.
Zou Ping gritted her teeth and said, "Very well then!" She then looked at Zi Yuan. "Zi Yuan, you've already made up your mind and decided to make trouble with our Zhengyi School. Are you set on becoming a great traitor to the Zhengyi School, which has been firmly established for a thousand years?"
it was quite a heavy label for Zi Yuan to undertake. Her body trembled slightly, but she quickly said calmly, "Like I said, in my life, Zi Yuan only exists for cultivation. I don't need anyone to tell me what to do. Whether I am a traitor or not, the cultivation world has its own system of justice, and it cannot be determined by one or two people's crafty mouths. Even if the cultivation world now thinks I am a traitor, I believe that the people within will naturally give me justice after a thousand years."
Ruan Hongling also said angrily, "Sister Zi Yuan, there's nothing to talk to her about!"
Zou Ping burst out laughing. "Back then, Mystical Silver Fox also said something like that, but how about now? After a thousand years, isn't she still notorious? Zi Yuan, let me tell you, you can't polish a turd!"
With this, she glared at Li Yundong fiercely. "Just like Fox Zen School.A demon will always be a demon. They haven't changed for thousands of years, and they won't change in the future!"
Li Yundong was furious. He stepped forward and shouted, " Are you asking for death?"
