Chapter 28 - The Utter Defeat of the Qin Clan
At this moment—as if they were just struck by lightning—everyone was shocked, causing their brains to start buzzing.
Fang Rulong has a sixth-grade Huang ranked Martial Spirit?
How is it possible for Fang Rulong to have a sixth-grade Huang ranked Martial Spirit?
Over the past ten years, not a single sixth-grade Huang ranked Martial Spirit was spotted in Lingshui City. This time, Fang Rulong from the Fang Clan had managed to awaken such a powerful Martial Spirit.
As such, the people of the Qin Clan—whose brains went blank all at once—shivered.
Even Qin TIan and Tian San had an icy cold feeling passing over them in that instance, as they had figured out the truth after thinking back at the series of events.
Why had Fang Rulong been so cocky and shown no mercy when he crippled Qin Clan’s disciple?
Why was Elder Bai Heng publicly helping the Fang Clan?
These were all because Fang Rulong had a sixth-grade Huang ranked Martial Spirit, making him the real genius; Chang Qingkong, on the other hand, was insignificant compared to Fang Rulong.
One cannot think that it was only the difference of a grade between the two; it was as significant as the gap between heaven and earth.
“HAHAHA, nice! Well said! In Lingshui City, you are the number one genius, while the others are trash!” Elder Bai Heng raised his head and laughed loudly. The imperious expression had returned to his face, and—for an unknown purpose—he asked, “Elder Xiao, what do you think of this disciple?”
“Not bad.” Xiao Qingxue seemed like she did not hear the question, and said with a slight nod, “Sixth-grade Huang ranked, a weapon type Martial Spirit which is good for combat. Great potential, you might have a chance to become a Martial Ancestor. I never expected to see such a talented person in this small Lingshui City. Looks like this trip was worth it.”
Even though Xiao Qingxue had a calm expression while saying this, there were quite some compliments in it.
Even comparing to the comment she gave to Qin Changkong, there were a few more compliments; the difference in attitude and the meaning behind it was huge.
Elder Bai Heng was particularily joyful on the inside when he heard the words. Aren’t you—Xiao Qingxue—sided with Qin Clan? Very well, let me show you that the Qin Clan is nothing in front of the Fang Clan.
However, the words had pulled the Qin Clan back from their state of shock.
Among the Qin Clan—with Qin Tieba as their leader—the previous cocky expressions were replaced by despairing faces, their eyes filled with terror.
Sixth-grade Huang ranked Martial Spirit, how overwhelming was that?
They clearly understood that Qin Changkong was indeed insignificant in front of a sixth-grade Huang ranked Martial Spirit, just as Fang Rulong had said. For him, Qin Changkong was merely a useless piece of trash.
Furthermore, it seemed like Fang Rulong was the only one to pass the trials and be selected to become a highly-respected disciple of the Mystic Spirit Sect!
With Fang Rulong’s sixth-grade Huang ranked Martial Spirit and with him now becoming a disciple of Mystic Spirit Sect soon, how would people treat him?
Facing such an opponent, the Qin Clan was completely outmatched; they could only look up at him.
The Qin Clan had fallen!
“You… You… You…” Qin Changkong let out a cry of grief; with an unbelieving face he yelled, “How… How… How did you… How did you awaken a sixth-grade Huang ranked Martial Spirit… I… I won’t believe it… I won’t believe it... AHHHH…”
Qin Changkong had completely lost his mind.
Aren’t I supposed to be the top genius of Lingshui City? Aren’t I the one that’s supposed to become a disciple of the Mystic Spirit Sect?
Why did it all change so suddenly?
Why did Fang Rulong have to awaken a sixth-grade Huang ranked Martial Spirit?
“Hehe.” Fang Rulong wore a calm and prideful expression, while he looked disdainfully at Qin Changkong and said, “Qin Changkong, weren’t you trash-talking me just now? Do you think you are strong with your fifth-grade Huang ranked Martial Spirit? Right now, you’re just trash, and trash has no right to live before me!”
Fang Rulong’s face twisted, while he unleashed a murderous aura.
The people of the Qin Clan trembled, their faces filled with fear. They never expected that the first thing Fang Rulong planned to do after showing his Martial Spirit was to kill the top genius of the Qin Clan.
Qin Changkong felt icy-cold as he was surrounded by the aura. Fear started growing in his heart. He did not hesitate to raise his head and shouted in the direction of the platform, “Elder Xiao, please stop him! Even though my Martial Spirit’s grade is lower, it’s still a fifth-grade Huang ranked Martial Spirit. I’m considered a rare talent too…”
Qin Changkong’s final hope was on Xiao Qingxue. However, when Xiao Qingxue heard the words spoken, her beautiful face remained as calm as always, without showing any sign of being affected.
The Qin Clan was originally not her favorite. She only spoke out to help Qin Nan as she was a little impressed by his decision. Furthermore, she was here to recruit disciples for the Mystic Spirit Sect; Fang Rulong with his sixth-grade Huang ranked Martial Spirit would definitely be given a high position in the Mystic Spirit Sect.
Hence, Xiao Qingxue would not interfere.
The world of Martial Arts had always followed the law of the jungle.
When he witnessed Xiao Qingxue’s reaction with his sharp observation, Qin Changkong’s face turned pale white, as if his soul had just been hit by a powerful blow, causing him to tremble, as if he had fallen into an ice cellar—the cold chilling his spine.
At this moment, Qin Changkong was terrified; he no longer had any hint of pride in him.
He realized that this time he had failed; he was totally defeated.
Looking at the cruel murderous aura on Fang Rulong’s face, Qin Changkong—who was having a mental breakdown after being exposed to the fear of death—kneeled on his knees and started crying, “Brother Fang, Young Master Fang Rulong, I beg you to spare my life… I will follow any order you give me if you do so… I’m willing to be your slave if you spare my life…”
The people at the scene widened their eyes. No one could have imagined the genius Qin Changkong—who had a fifth-grade Huang ranked Martial Spirit— kneeling and begging for his life like an ant.
“Trash.” Fang Rulong stopped on the spot and started laughing uncontrollably, full of smug pride.
Didn’t he wait for half a month—just for today?
Initially, he was planning to show his power and imperiousness by killing Qin Changkong, but he never expected him to be so weak—kneeling down and begging for his life.
“Rulong, there’s no need to kill him.” Fang Li said with a prideful face, “This trash might be useful to us if he come to Fang Clan. Now that you’ve become a disciple of Mystic Spirit Sect, he would not dare to do anything stupid anymore.”
Qin Changkong was pleased to hear this, and immediately replied, “Thank you Master! Thank you Master! I, Qin Changkong would never betray the Fang Clan. I’ll do my best to help the Fang Clan…”
The Qin Clan were stunned. They never thought Qin Changkong would betray the Qin Clan and join the Fang Clan in such a short period of time.
Seeing this, Qin Tian felt an anger rise within him as he stared straight at Fang Li, “You guys…”
“HAHA, Qin Tian, was it a surprise to you? Us of the Fang Clan have remained low-key for so long just to defeat your Qin Clan. To be honest, our power even now is enough to destroy your Qin Clan. However, I don’t want to use that option; I would rather torture you, and completely eliminate the Qin Clan by letting the people of the Qin Clan be my slaves!” Fang Li displayed a wicked smile and turned toward the Qin Clan, before he said in a loud voice, “I’ll give you guys one last chance. Learn from Qin Changkong; abandon the Qin Clan and join my Fang Clan. If not…”
“...be prepared to face our Fang Clan’s wrath.” Upon saying this, a twisted expression appeared on Fang Li’s face.
The expressions of the Qin Clan changed instantly; their hearts were filled with terror.
In just less than five breaths’ time, people lost their composure. The first to betray was Qin Tieba, who said with a loud voice, “Master of the Fang Clan, the choice my son Qin Changkong made will be my choice too. I’m willing to join the Fang Clan, and contribute my strength…”
After the words of Qin Tieba, the other deacons and elders of the Qin Clan immediately followed his actions.
“Yeah yeah yeah, I would like to join Fang Clan too.”
“F**k it, I was thinking of leaving the Qin Clan a long time ago!”
“HAHAHA, thank you, Master of the Fang Clan. I’m willing to contribute my all to the Fang Clan, even if it means my death.”
