Just as the two of them were feeling uncertain and beginning to make guesses about each other, Zi Yuan suddenly appeared not far away. She said in a loud voice, "Don't guess. Let's go down first. Yang Spirit is flying so high and fighting so fiercely. Aren't you afraid of being struck by Heavenly Thunder?"
Zhang Ling turned her head and laughed coldly, her gaze unkind. "Zi Yuan, we just so happened to cultivate a traitor like you. This is truly a pleasant surprise!"
Li Yundong also snorted. "The outcome hasn't been decided yet. What if this guy goes back on his word when we get down?"
"Li Yundong, in terms of age, I'm older than your parents," Zhang Ling said angrily, "and in terms of seniority, I'm much older than you. How dare you humiliate me like this?"
Li Yundong replied in a similarly annoyed tone, "Since you have grown older, how is it that you have allowed your disciple to come and provoke you time and time again and humiliate Zi Yuan? Is this how noble sects do things? Come, come, there's no victor today. We'll never give up. Let's see if the heavenly lightning will choose to strike you or me!"
Zhang Ling was livid. She was about to fight Li Yundong again when she saw Zou Ping, Du Fei, Zheng Yuan, and the others flying over as well.
Zou Ping caught sight of Zi Yuan and shouted, "Would you prefer to bully me with more people or with fewer?"
Li Yundong sneered and said, "Do you think we are like you?"
Zou Ping was so angry that she was about to retort when Du Fei, who was standing to one side, glanced at the sky worriedly. "Zhenren Zhang, Zhenren Li, I saw both of your duels just now. One of you is a famous Daoist cultivator, the other is a rising rookie. This should be a blessing to Daoists like us, so why don't we distinguish between the dead and the living? As the saying goes, it's better to get rid of enemies than to get together. Furthermore, fighting under these rolling, thunder-like dark clouds is really a bit unreasonable. I think we'd better give up on the battle for the time being!"
Zheng Yuan also stroked his beard and said with a face full of compassion, "You're right, Zhenren Du! I think the Heavenly Thunder is coming in a weird way, so let's give it up for the time being."
Li Yundong responded flatly, "No, you ruined my teahouse on the first day of its opening. How am I supposed to do business in the future? The must be a victor today!"
Zhang Ling also sneered spitefully. "Well, I'd like to see if you, the Immovable Wisdom King, have some real skills!"
Seeing that the two of them were about to get into an altercation again, the few people next to them became anxious and Zi Yuan said, "Since there is a notary, why don't we let them decide the winner?"
As soon as these words came out of Zi Yuan's mouth, Du Fei and Zheng Yuan's faces suddenly froze, and they cursed in their hearts, "Damn it, Zi Yuan really knows how to make use of the current situation to cause trouble! If I had known this would happen, I wouldn't have joined in on the fun or become a notary!"
Li Yundong turned his head and looked at Du Fei. He cupped one hand in the other before his chest and asked, "What do you think, Zhenren Du?"
Du Fei looked embarrassed. He thought for a moment, and then his eyes narrowed. He gritted his teeth and said, "In my opinion, Zhenren Li did have the upper hand just now, and one of Zhenren Zhang's Yang Spirits was destroyed. If you continue to fight, it will be difficult to guess the outcome, but judging from the situation just now, it should be considered Zhenren Li's win."
Zhang Ling immediately sneered and said, "Well, Quanzhen Dragon Sect has shown its true colors! Zhenren Du, you're right!"
Du Fei cupped one hand in the other before his chest and said, "Zhenren Zhang, I'm just telling the truth!"
Zhang Ling snorted, then turned to look at Zheng Yuan and said in an icy tone, "What did Head Zheng say?"
A thought came to Zhang Ling. "It seems that today is not my day. Last time I offended Zheng Yuan, and now I'm afraid that he will come back for revenge."
But while Zhang Ling was thinking this, Zheng Yuan said, "What you said is wrong, Zhenren Du. Since it is a battle, how can we decide the winner based on only temporary gains and losses? In my opinion, if we continued to fight like this, Zhenren Zhang would definitely be able to reverse the situation by relying on her profound cultivation foundation and various divine Taoist methods. Therefore, I think that Zhenren Zhang should win, because her cultivation skills are better than Zhenren Li's!"
Hearing this, Zhang Ling was both surprised and delighted. She thought to herself, "Zheng Yuan doesn't care about the past? Was I wrong about him?"
Li Yundong, however, was secretly furious. He says with a cold laugh, "Zheng Yuan, I haven't taken revenge on you for last time. Do you want to die?"
Zheng Yuan's eyes flashed with a hint of light, his face motionless. He slowly and methodically stroked his beard as he said, "Zhenren Li, I don't understand what you mean. I'm just speaking frankly. You can ask others. If it's about the higher level of cultivation, who is better, you or Zhenren Zhang?"
Li Yundong said angrily, "Is the high-leveled fighting method destined to win? In that case, the ones who should have died at the foot of the Himalayas should not have been Wu Hao and Lyu Fengping, but me!"
Zheng Yuan immediately flew into a rage and spat ferociously, "Li Yundong, what did you say?!"
Seeing that Li Yundong's words had hit Zheng Yuan's weak spot, Zi Yuan knew that if Zheng Yuan joined the battle as well, the Heavenly Thunder would definitely strike faster, attracted by the cultivators' True Energy. If the Heavenly Thunder really fell, the consequences would be unimaginable!
Zi Yuan immediately said, "Since the two judges are equally insistent, we should let the other witness determine who is the winner and who is the loser!"
Hearing this, Du Fei immediately said, "Zhenren Zi Yuan Lin is right. Shen Wancai should be the one to decide the victor!"
Zheng Yuan rolled his eyes and nodded in agreement.
Zhang Ling laughed coldly. "He's just a secular mortal and can't even see our battle. How is he supposed to determine the victor?"
"Zhenren Zhang is right," Zi Yuan said. "But since he can't see the battle between the two of you, why don't you fight another battle that he actually can see and use it as proof to determine the winner?"
Li Yundong's heart skipped a beat. "Zhenren Zhang, you'll be the first one to fight. I'll be the one to set the rules for the second one!"
Zi Yuan's expression didn't change, but in her heart, she was praising Li Yundong's intelligence and tacit understanding.
Zhang Lingyi was bold and conceited. When she saw the lightning and thunder in the ominous dark clouds above her head becoming increasingly fierce, she nodded and said, "Well, if you have the ability, just do it!"
After that, her figure flashed and she quickly shot down to the ground.
Li Yundong and Zi Yuan glanced at each other and also quickly flew back down.
As soon as Li Yunyang's Yang Spirit returned to his body, he saw Zi Yuan and the others filing through the door one after another. All of the guests in Disanxian stared at him as if they were anxiously waiting for him to make a cup of tea.
Li Yundong thought to himself, "I can't exactly announce that I was just in a draw with Zhang Ling, so I'll have to fight again. But now everyone is watching me, waiting for me to produce a teacup. What should I say?"
Li Yundong thought about it and soon had an idea. He cupped one hand in the other before his chest and said, "Sorry to keep you waiting. I'll bring out the teacup in a while!"
Then, he turned to Su Chan. "Chan'er, you can find a water jar, or even a big mug. Just make sure that it's big. The bigger, the better!"
Su Chan rolled her eyes. Although she didn't know what Li Yundong was going to do, she was very clever and said, "I actually just bought a big tea tank to store things in. Looks like it'll come in handy today!"
With that, she quickly ran into the storage room and emerged a moment later with a tea jar in one hand.
Everyone looked curiously and was immediately shocked. They could see that the two tea tanks in Su Chan's hands were as thick as the waists of two strong men, and they went up to Su Chan's waist, making them more than one meter high. They laughed in amazement and said, "How is that a tea tank? That's obviously a rice jar!"
"It's strange. How could there be such a big vat in this teahouse?"
Su Chan put the pot on the ground easily. As soon as the pot touched the floor, there was a dull thud. Only then did everyone truly understand the heavy weight of the pot. They immediately looked at Su Chan in surprise and thought, "How could such a lovely, beautiful girl be so strong? How could she carry such a large water tank with one hand? There are so many beautiful women in Disanxian, do they all have unique skills? It's amazing, really amazing!"
When Li Yundong saw the tank, he nodded to Su Chan and said, "Go and fill it."
Su Chan nodded and turned back into the back room. Zhou Qin also said, "I'm going to help."
Hearing this, Cao Kefei observed the situation said, "I'll go too!"
Liu Fei'er rolled her eyes and followed them with a smile.
After the beauties had all entered the back room, Su Chan looked back curiously and asked, "Why are there so many people here? I can do it just fine by myself."
Zhou Qin smiled and said, "Well, you're the only one in the limelight. Can't I also help my master?"
Su Chan giggled. "In that case, Sister Zhou Qin, could you fetch me two buckets of water later?"
Cao Kefei and Liu Fei'er had no time to look around the back room of Disanxian. They saw Su Chan and Zhou Qin each fill two buckets of water, then walk out laughing. The buckets in their hands were deep and heavy, each filled with 20 or 30 litres of water. However, they lifted the buckets as if they weighed nothing. Moreover, the water in the buckets did not shake at all, not a drop escaping.
Cao Kefei and Liu Fei'er were amazed. Cao Kefei winked at Liu Fei'er and muttered in a low voice, "See that? They really are masters, aren't they?"
Liu Fei'er nodded and looked at Su Chan and Zhou Qin admiringly. She said in a low voice, "Their figures are so slim and they look so fragile. I never would have expected them to be so strong!"
Cao Kefei whispered, "This is not only possible with great strength. Look at them, their buckets are full and their walking speed is so fast but they're not spilling even a little water. This is the power of kung fu!"
Liu Fei'er exclaimed in wonder, "I really don't know how they learned it!"
Cao Kefei smiled. "Didn't you hear what Zhou Qin said? She learned it from her master."
Liu Fei'er asked curiously, "Who's her master?"
Cao Kefei laughed good-naturedly. "You are a star and yet your observation abilities are so poor? Didn't you see that Zhou Qin called Li Yundong master when she was talking about him? Her master is Li Yundong!"
Liu Fei'er blinked rapidly. "No way. How old is he? He's about the same age as me, isn't he?"
Cao Kefei smiled and said, "Only one who is capable is worthy of being a teacher! The disciple has supernatural power, so the master can't be worse than them. Just watch!"
Liu Fei'er pulled a face and said, "Humph, I'd like to see what he's going to do with that vat of water and how he'll get the cup back."
