Dia Wu… Dia Wu… (1)

The pain of one’s arm being ripped off was simply unexplainable. The mental pain and anguish from seeing one’s arm being savagely torn off also greatly added to Xuanyuan Sheng’s suffering.
The Long family’s father and son watched in shock, and Xuanyuan Dao’s entire body stiffened. All of the Long Yu espers, as well as everyone else around instantly went pale, and felt as if their hearts had been stabbed with countless frozen thorns. They were unable to believe what they had just seen. This was the leader of the Xuanyuan family, who had an incredibly high cultivation in the way of the sword and was hailed as a legend. And yet, his entire right arm had been ripped off by Ling Chen who was covered in wounds, and couldn’t even stand up properly.
“Sect leader Xuanyuan!!”
Countless cries of concern filled the entire Long family residence, but the only response was Xuanyuan Sheng’s heart-wrenching scream. Ling Chen revelled in this scene through his hazy vision, and his lips curved upwards in glee. He threw Xuanyuan Sheng’s severed right arm far away, and the Azure Edge Sword that was in the right hand flew into the air. Ling Chen raised his head and watched as the sword fell, and grabbed it with his hand, then pierced towards Xuanyuan Sheng’s throat…
The doors of the central hall were explosively thrown open as Xuanyuan Dao rushed out towards Ling Chen like an enraged lion. His sword flew in front of him as it streaked towards Ling Chen like a meteor. Ling Chen looked through the opened doors, and suddenly saw Long Tian Yun… in that moment, he felt as if he had been struck by lightning. All of the hatred and despair within him madly stirred within him, and his eyes became completely red.
This roar was even more monstrous than that of a wild beast’s, and Long Tian Yun involuntarily shuddered. He couldn’t help but turn around, and his gaze met the crimson red eyes. They were the eyes of a demon, and upon seeing them, his entire body froze and became paralysed. Those eyes seemed to be desperate to devour him and drag him into the abyss of death.
Xuanyuan Dao’s sword flew at an incredible speed, and even caused the dust on the ground to fly into the air. Ling Chen watched as the sword flew closer and closer to him, as well as Xuanyuan Dao that was charging over… all of them blocked his view of Long Tian Yun. In his fury, he glared at Xuanyuan Dao and furiously yelled…
Xuanyuan Dao’s eyes met Ling Chen’s crimson red eyes, and instantly, he felt as if a thousand-kilogram-heavy hammer had smashed into his head. His head buzzed, and his world became white. He couldn’t see anything, nor feel his body anymore…
The longsword flew past Ling Chen, but the wind that it carried caused Ling Chen to stumble back by three steps. Ling Chen did all he could to stay upright, but he was unable to stab the Azure Edge Sword into Xuanyuan Sheng’s neck. Ling Chen immediately reacted, and he swung his arm and sent the Azure Edge Sword flying towards Xuanyuan Sheng.
The Azure Edge Sword whistled through the air and savagely stabbed into Xuanyuan Sheng’s body. It pierced into the right side of his chest and stabbed through his back… however, the sword did not stop there. It continued to fly and accurately pierced into Xuanyuan Dao’s body. The Azure Edge Sword did not completely pierce through, but rather brought Xuanyuan Dao’s body with it as it flew another 20 metres before it finally slammed into a wall, nailing him in place.
This scene caused all of the onlookers’ throats to go completely dry, and their hearts almost burst out of their bodies. Although they had personally seen what had just happened, but they simply didn’t dare to believe it… most of them began to believe that none of this was real - all of this had to be some sort of illusion or nightmare. How could this sort of thing happen in reality?!
As everyone watched in horror, Ling Chen did not stop at all. There was no longer anything blocking him, and the boundless hatred ignited the hidden strength within him. He charged towards Long Tian Yun at a terrifying speed. Everyone only saw the blur of a black shadow, and by the time they called out in fear, Ling Chen was only less than ten steps away from the central hall.
“Leader!! Watch out!!”
“Ah!! Leader! Young master!!”
However, apart from yell out, they could do nothing at all. Murong Xiong Tian was severely injured, it was unknown whether Xuanyuan Sheng was still alive and Xuanyuan Dao was still nailed to the wall. All of the strongest bodyguards had fallen, and there was practically no one to protect the Long family father and son.
They could only watch as the black shadow charged into the central hall, directly towards the terrified Long Tian Yun.
An overpowering stench of blood filled the hall, and Ling Chen’s murderous aura and killing intent caused the originally hot hall to become incredibly cold. In his horror, Long Tian Yun couldn’t even make a sound anymore. Flame Shadow and Long Zheng Yang seemed to subconsciously stand in front of him, as if to block Ling Chen’s way. However, how could they block this raging demon? Flame Shadow and Long Zheng Yang were blasted away by just Ling Chen’s berserk aura, and they were sent flying into the walls of the hall. Long Zheng Yang coughed up a mouthful of blood, whereas Flame Shadow instantly fainted.
Suddenly, the pair of crimson red eyes were right in front of Long Tian Yun, and a pair of hands that were cold as steel and dyed red with blood grabbed on to his neck… in that moment, Long Tian Yun could clearly sense his impending death.
All of the Long family’s members felt like their hearts were about to explode. Long Tian Yun was the sole heir of the Long family. If he died, then the Long family would be unable to continue. All of the people cried out in fear and despair as they madly charged towards Ling Chen. However, Ling Chen was able to defeat Murong Xiong Tian and rip off Xuanyuan Sheng’s arm… breaking Long Tian Yun’s neck would take an instant.
Long Tian Yun’s eyes widened as he struggled to breathe, and his eyes rolled back… one second passed, two seconds passed… apart from being unable to breathe, he didn’t feel any great pain, nor did he feel he was getting closer to death. In fact, his vision began to clear, and he could once again see those terrifying eyes. However, those eyes were becoming dimmer and dimmer… the hands on his neck gradually let go, and Long Tian Yun fell heavily onto the ground.
With all of his strength sapped, Ling Chen slowly fell to the ground and did not move anymore.
Long Tian Yun scrambled backwards on his hands and knees, his face white as a sheet. He gasped for breath as his entire body trembled, and was unable to even stand up.
That moment would become the most unforgettable shadow and nightmare of his entire life.
“Young master! Young master!!”
“Young master, leader, are you alright?”
The Long family’s people rushed into the hall, and helped Long Tian Yun and Long Zheng Yang up… Ling Chen had fallen, and was completely out of energy. Otherwise, he definitely wouldn’t have left Long Tian Yun alive. However, the terror he had brought tonight caused all of the people to stay far away from him despite the fact that he was powerlessly lying on the ground. Although he was completely still, the terrifying aura that he emanated still chilled those around him to the bone.
Long Zheng Yang gradually recovered from what had just happened. The shock and fright had almost stopped his heart. Seeing Ling Chen lying on the ground with a massive pool of blood around him, he knew that this time, he was down for good. He was either completely out of energy or dead. However, his heart was still beating like crazy, and wouldn’t stop beating like that for a while. Seeing Ling Chen’s body, Long Zheng Yang couldn’t help but shudder.
“What happened… to Xuanyuan?” Seeing Long Tian Yun, whose face was incredibly pale, but looked otherwise unhurt, Long Zheng Yang managed to croak out a question.
“The leader of the Xuanyuan family has been sent to the hospital. He wasn’t hit in the heart, so his wounds shouldn’t be life-threatening. However, sect leader Xuanyuan…”
“I’m… fine…” An extremely weak, but confident voice came from outside. Xuanyuan Dao’s mind had recovered from the blow of Ling Chen’s mental energy, but he was still nailed to the wall. He was simply unable to pull out the Azure Edge Sword by himself. He said in a low voice, “Don’t worry about me… immediately kill him… don’t let him live any longer. This person must… must die!!”
The ground outside was littered with corpses… Long family guards, Dark Eagles, Steel Dragons, Blood Wolves… there were also Murong Xiong Tian, Xuanyuan Sheng and Xuanyuan Dao, who were all seriously injured. Ling Chen had even come extremely close to killing the Long family’s young master…
Even if he was dead, this person would still be able to cause them countless nightmares. How could they possibly allow him to continue to live?!
At this moment, a light breeze passed by outside, and a black shadow soundlessly entered the hall. It walked into the centre of the hall and silently observed everything around it. This person was completely wrapped up in a black cloak, and they were wrapped up so tightly that their eyes and hair couldn’t be seen. The cloak was so large that even the shape of the person’s body couldn’t be clearly seen.
Seeing this person arrive, Xuanyuan Dao weaklessly yelled, “You… You’re late… Hurry up at kill that person, he’s too dangerous!”
“Xie Yu, finish him off. Everything that happened today was because of him. To force him to this state, my Long family and your Xuanyuan family had to pay a great price. You can be the one to end this nightmare.” Long Zheng Yang feebly said.
An expressionless gaze fell onto Ling Chen’s body, and a sword appeared in her hand. She slowly walked towards Ling Chen…
