Chapter 23 - Siding with the Strong
The Qin Clan opened their eyes wide, while the veins on their foreheads pulsated in surges of anger.
Fang Rulong was simply too arrogant and too tyrannical. Not only did he humiliate Qin Li, but he had unexpectedly turned the Qin Clan disciple into a cripple in a single move.
This action was a public slap to the Qin Clan’s face—he was not placing the Qin Clan in his eyes.
In this instant, Qin Tian stood up—his face filled with anger—and said, “Fang Li, what is the meaning of this? It’s just a Martial Art Competition, how could you beat someone ‘til they’re crippled?”
If it wasn’t for Tie San holding Qin Tian back, it was possible that Qin Tian would’ve rushed towards Fang Rulong and struck at him.
Although Qin Tian didn’t have the same position in the Qin Clan as before, at the end of the day, they were all still part of the Qin Clan. Qin Tian would not stare helplessly as the people of the Qin Clan got bullied and humiliated by the Fang Clan.
Fang Li’s face didn’t change. He didn’t put Qin Tian’s rage in his eyes, and the corner of his mouth even curved up into a smile as he said, “Patriarch Qin Tian, what you’ve said is wrong. Firstly, life and death doesn’t matter in this competition. Secondly, I approve of Fang Rulong’s action; I also believe trash shouldn’t survive in this world—they can only become crippled.”
The faces of the Qin Clan changed once more.
They never thought that Fang Li would say something like this. It was clearly saying: “Our Fang Clan will definitely oppose your Qin Clan.”
“Good, very good!” At this time, Qin Changkong was no longer able to hold back the rage in his heart—he laughed three times. His face was dark, his eyes incessantly sweeping past the numerous disciples of the Fang Clan, when he said, “Since this is how those of the Fang Clan handle things, then I would like to see what kind of level the disciples of the Fang Clan are really at….”
Not only Qin Changkong—but also the other disciples and elders of the Qin Clan—began to laugh coldly, their eyes flickering with killing intent.
Since your Fang Clan is acting so shamelessly towards our Qin Clan, then don’t blame us for being impolite.
Do they think the Qin Clan is just a simple pushover that anyone can mess with?
However, at this moment, a sudden laugh sounded. The person the laugh came from was Bai Heng.
As Elder Bai Heng laughed, the attention of the Qin Clan and the Fang Clan was naturally drawn to him.
Bai Heng’s face was rosy; it looked like he was feeling incomparably joyful as he opened his mouth, “Alright, stop fighting. I think Fang Rulong’s method is correct; wastes should become crippled—they should die.”
As this was said, the Qin Clan’s complexion changed slightly.
The attendants and elders of the Qin Clan started to fawn over Elder Bai Heng.
Only Qin Tian and Tian San had a terrible look on their faces, but they somehow came to an understanding; under such a circumstance, it was not the best time to unleash their anger.
If they were to lose their tempers, then they would find themselves facing Elder Bai Heng’s rage.
Who in the entire Qin Clan would be able to stop him if that happened?
As Elder Bai Heng heard their words, he nodded his head in satisfaction, “Not bad, the people of the Qin Clan are quite understanding. Qin Changkong, do your best. I still hold expectations for you.”
After hearing this, Qin Changkong and the others of the Qin Clan could not help but let out a sigh of relief.
As long as Elder Bai Heng didn’t lose his temper, so what if Fang Rulong were to cripple a few disciples of the Qin Clan?
On seeing the reaction of the Qin Clan, a scornful and proud look appeared on Fang Li’s and Fang Rulong’s faces. They had long expected this scene to play out.
Not only those two, but every disciple and elder of the Fang Clan appeared to be exceedingly excited.
Elder Bai Heng was helping the Fang Clan; why would they be scared of the Qin Clan?
Xiao Qingxue stood in silence on top of the white-jade platform, her beautiful eyes observing everything that took place. From the beginning until now, she hadn’t spoken a single word. However, a nearly-hidden trace of contempt appeared in her attractive eyes as they scanned over those of the Qin Clan who were bent forward fawning over Elder Bai Heng.
Following this—with a sudden thought—Xiao Qingxue instinctively looked at the young man who had been able to stare directly into her eyes before.
Qin Nan sat at his previous location. He had a calm expression throughout the whole process, as if he was not afraid that Elder Bai Heng was helping the Fang Clan; neither was he furious that Fang Rulong had crippled the Qin Clan’s disciple.
Even though Qin Nan was good at hiding it, Xiao Qingxue with her sharp eyes was able to detect the hint of an icy-cold gaze from his eyes.
Xiao Qingxue felt a bit curious as she thought to herself: How will he react to the situation?
While Xiao Qingxue was pondering, Fang Rulong—who was sitting in front of the Fang Clan—appeared to have reminded himself of something, and looked towards Qin Nan.
A cold expression appeared on Fang Rulong’s face as he couldn’t hold back a chuckle, “Young Lord Qin Nan, you’re just trash with a first-grade Huang ranked Martial Spirit. Why are you staring at me with such a ferocious look? Are you planning to do something to the Fang Clan’s disciples with such a weak cultivation base?”
Upon hearing this, the Qin Clan’s expressions changed as they glanced at Qin Nan.
When Elder Bai Heng heard these words, his smile disappeared immediately. He wasn’t fond of Qin Nan to begin with, and together with the words of Fang Rulong, his feelings of enmity towards Qin Nan grew. His face turned icy cold, and a terrifying invisible aura could be sensed rising from his body.
As Elder Bai Heng unleashed his aura, the atmosphere froze immediately.
