Chapter 319: Not to be Humiliated
“What did you say?”
The smile on Yuan Qingtian’s face instantly froze, and the next second, he appeared in front of Chu Xiong. He tugged Chu Xiong’s collar and hollered at him furiously.
Chu Xiong sneered and flung Yuan Qingtian away. He said indifferently, “You and I are well aware of that, so why do we have to continue?”
Yuan Qingtian punched Chu Xiong in the face, but he was stunned by his spiritual power.
“How dare you call yourself the strongest Nascent Soul realm cultivator? What a joke.”
Yuan Qingtian wanted to continue hitting him, but a voice sounded in his head.
“Qingtian, don’t bother with him, defeat him again in the ring.”
Hearing those words, Yuan Qingtian retracted his hand resentfully, but he was keeping his eyes fixed on Chu Xiong, seemingly out to kill him.
Although it didn’t scare Chu Xiong, it did scare the people around him as they thought that he really practiced some diabolic cultivation method.
Xia Xishuang said indignantly, “Chen Chen, Chu Xiong has gone overboard! To think that I had been on par with him for a while!”
If Chen Chen hadn’t stopped her, she would have taught him a lesson right on the spot.
Chen Chen shook his head and said, “You and I have both reached the Essence Soul realm, why bother with a junior? There are many people with such thoughts, I can’t possibly kill them all.”
Xia Xishuang’s mood was extremely complicated after hearing that.
Chen Chen had always drawn a clear line between love and hatred. If it were in the past, he would have taken action long ago.
Now that he had said that, he was clearly sparing a thought for the human race.
Compared with Chen Chen’s noble sentiments, those who liked spreading gossip and rumors were all villains!
Chen Chen looked at Chu Xiong and quietly noted down his name.
In the distance, Yuan Qingtian had been watching Chu Xiong, but he didn’t feel any discomfort. However, this time, he couldn’t help but shiver.
A few moments later, the Battle of Techniques began.
The large ring for Nascent Soul realm cultivators was divided into four smaller rings. Two Nascent Soul realm cultivators would be fighting in each small ring.
As the battles continued, the group of Nascent Soul realm cultivators soon forgot about the previous hiccup.
Yuan Qingtian had to face the angry glare of Chu Xiong after each battle.
About two hours passed.
Yuan Qingtian won three games in a row, all of which were one-move defeats. Gradually, it attracted the attention of all Nascent Soul realm cultivators.
During those two hours, only the nine people in the information insider list, excluding Yuan Qingtian.
Besides, his cultivation level was in the late stage of the Nascent Soul realm.
“Who is this person? He’s so impressive, why haven’t I heard of him before?”
“Indeed, his concealment technique is impressive, I can’t sense it at all!”
“It seems to be someone from Wufeng City. Is there someone in Wufeng City named Yuan Qingtian?”
“I’ve heard of Li Qingtian, but not Yuan Qingtian.”
The group of onlooking cultivators whispered, and many more subconsciously looked at Chen Chen.
After all, he was the lord of Wufeng City.
Chen Chen looked calm, and he quietly used the system a few times. Generally, he knew the strength of each of the Nascent Soul realm cultivators in that group.
Zhang Ji was the first to be recognized by the system.
The system couldn’t judge the two with innate spirit bodies and Yuan Qingtian, but the rest were weaker than these four.
If nothing goes wrong, Zhang Ji should be the strongest Nascent Soul realm cultivator.
While thinking about it, Chen Chen glanced at the confident Yuan Qingtian and sighed in his heart. He thought that Chen Chen was destined to be disappointed.
“I’ve finally gotten paired with you after such a long time!”
As the number of matches increased, Yuan Qingtian finally faced Chu Xiong.
As soon as Yuan Qingtian got in the ring, he glowered at Chu Xiong with a menacing gaze.
Seeing this, the Essence Soul realm judge couldn’t help but remind. “When you’re in the ring, you must not use lethal moves until absolutely necessary!”
Hearing this, Chu Xiong said indifferently, “Senior, don’t worry, I won’t kill this kid.”
As soon as he said that, Yuan Qingtian got concealed in the void.
The Essence Soul realm cultivators who were maintaining order couldn’t help but laugh bitterly. They wondered how he got the stealth technique from, so much that they couldn’t discover anything.
However, he had to pretend like he could tell. Otherwise, it would be too embarrassing.
As Yuan Qingtian went into stealth mode, the spiritual power around Chu Xiong immediately erupted, forming has flung thick spiritual protection that wrapped around his body.
He had an innate spirit body, and his defensive power was extremely strong. He had once been on par with Xia Xishuang who claimed to be the best at attacking in the Nascent Soul realm. On the other hand, he was the best in defense.
Hence, when facing someone like Yuan Qingtian who was often in stealth, he actually didn’t panic at all. In his opinion, he couldn’t break his defense, let alone trump him.
Chu Xiong quietly walked towards the middle of the ring and said calmly, “Kid, the strongest Nascent Soul realm cultivator isn’t that coward, is it?”
There was no movement in the surroundings, and the entire ring was extremely calm.
When the Nascent Soul realm cultivators saw this scene, their expressions were rather bizarre, because they didn’t know that there was such a person on the ring.
“Li Qingtian, don’t hide if you’re a man!”
“Li Qingtian, you’re such an embarrassment to Nascent Soul realm cultivators!”
Chu Xiong provoked while carefully sensing. However, he still couldn’t sense a single trace of Yuan Qingtian’s tracks. That made his expression change a little.
A few moments later, he said loudly with a cold expression on his face, “There are no flaws with your concealment technique, it’s probably a diabolical cultivation method, huh? Hah, Wufeng City…”
Before he could finish his words, his expression suddenly became hideous, and he turned around. A huge shield then appeared in his hand, and he smashed it against the void.
With a loud explosion, Yuan Qingtian was flung dozens of meters away, but before he could land, he vanished again.
On the other hand, Chu Xiong seemed to have grabbed Yuan Qingtian’s lifeline as he continued to say, “Li Qingtian, Wufeng City is where diabolic cultivators gather!”
As expected, as soon as he said those words, Yuan Qingtian appeared behind him again and stabbed him with the dagger.
A strange sound rang out as the dagger directly pierced through the protective spiritual aura and stabbed Chu Xiong’s inner armor.
Chu Xiong sneered, stomped his foot on the ground, and a massive aura suppressed his back. He then threw punches at lightning speed.
With a muffled grunt, blood was spurted out into the void and spilled all over the ground.
Seeing this scene, Xia Xishuang cursed coldly.
Hearing this, Chu Xiong who was in the ring laughed lightly and said, “It’s just that his mind cultivation is not up to par yet.”
Xia Xishuang looked at Chen Chen, only to see that he still looked as calm as ever, leaving her in disbelief.
She knew how much Chen Chen valued the people of Wufeng City.
However, Chen Chen actually let Chu Xiong insult Wufeng City, which was unbelievable to her.
‘Since when has Chen Chen been so nice?’
Seemingly having seen through Xia Xishuang’s thoughts, Chen Chen said in a hoarse voice, “Qingtian’s mindset is indeed not up to par, but if word about this gets out, who will still be afraid of his divine concealment technique in the future?”
Xia Xishuang could sense the anger in Chen Chen’s tone and sighed softly.
The truth was indeed so.
If Yuan Qingtian did not get over this hurdle, the consequences would be dire if he were to fight with others in the future, and they were to mention the Wufeng City and diabolism.
“Li Qingtian, did you learn this diabolic method from your Senior Brother?”
Chu Xiong went even further when he saw that Chen Chen wasn’t responding.
As soon as he said those words, the void trembled!
A majestic pressure shot out from the void above Chu Xiong and darted down onto him. Seeing this, he laughed and raised his shield to the sky.
However, in the next second, Yuan Qingtian burrowed out from the ground and an ice-like dagger stabbed Chu Xiong’s body forcefully.
Cracking sounds filled the air.
When the dagger stabbed into the protective spiritual aura, it did not move in by an inch, but Chu Xiong broke out in cold sweat.
The dagger was only a few centimeters away from him. If his protective spiritual aura was weaker, he would probably be in so much pain that he would rather die!
At this thought, he flew into a rage and waved his shield before smashing it at Yuan Qingtian.
With a loud sound, Yuan Qingtian collided into the ring, and the space around him began to crack.
Only then did that group of onlookers see Yuan Qingtian.
At this moment, Yuan Qingtian lay on the ground, his inner armor was shattered, and his body was covered in blood. His legs were twisted, but his gaze was menacing and ferocious as he glowered at Chu Xiong like a diabolic cultivator who had lost his mind.
“Diabolism! This is diabolism!”
Chu Xiong got the chills, and he stomped his foot onto Yuan Qingtian’s face after hollering.
Seeing this, the corners of Yuan Qingtian’s mouth curled up slightly and he chanted, “Explode.”
With a loud explosion, the dagger self-destructed, setting off a powerful shock wave.
Chu Xiong’s protective spiritual aura shattered, and his roar of pain spread for tens of thousands of kilometers.
The surrounding Nascent Soul realm cultivators were all horrified and confused!
This cultivator called Qingtian had destroyed his personal treasure!
Without the slightest hesitation! He was a lunatic!
Before the crowd could process what was going on, the ashen Yuan Qingtian had already flown towards Chu Xiong with a longsword in hand.
He said in a faint voice, “Let me tell you, my Senior Brother is not someone a small fry like you can insult…”
