Within a pitch black and gloomy room, a bronze lantern flickered and emanated a dim glow.
"I've already given up, so there's no need for you to continue persuading me." Bai Cheng's entire body was enveloped by darkness, causing it to be impossible to see his face clearly, and his voice was low, hoarse, deep, and seemed to be slightly ghastly.
"Elder Bai Cheng, do you really intend to refuse the assistance from the Zuoqiu Clan?" There was a ball of shadow wriggling before Bai Cheng, and even its appearance was difficult to see clearly as it was covered entirely by darkness.
His voice was sharp and revealed a wisp of a dense feeling of superiority, and even if he was refused by Bai Cheng, he didn't feel annoyed and said slowly, "So long as this matter is done, we can even discuss allowing your entire Bai Clan to return to the Immortal Dimension."
Bai Cheng interrupted with a wave of his hand. "Enough!"
The person went silent for a long time before he said with a sharp voice, "Elder Bai Cheng, in the eyes of my Zuoqiu Clan, if one can't become a friend, then it can only be an enemy. You better consider carefully once more because it's fine if only you're implicated, but if the entire Bai Clan is implicated as well, that isn't something we're willing to see happen."
"Are you threatening me?" Bai Cheng brows knit together tightly, and his tone became blunt.
"Oh, Elder Bai Cheng, you've misunderstood. I'm giving you suggestions and advice." The person laughed with a sharp voice.
Bai Cheng went silent while expression changed indeterminately, and it was just like the bronze lantern that flickered indeterminately.
The person became even more complacent when he saw this, and he said slowly, "If Elder Bai Cheng can't bear to shed all pretenses with Bai Jingchen, then we can lend a hand. Even though our forces in the Mortal Dimension are incapable of doing anything to Bai Jingchen, killing a bastard that was bound to die a long time ago can still be achieved easily."
When he spoke up to here, his tone suddenly became secretive. "Of course, if Elder Bai Cheng needs it, we can help you deal with Bai Jingchen and support you up the position of Patriarch. I believe that with your great talent and bold vision, and coupled with the assistance of my Zuoqiu Clan, you'll be entirely capable of leading the Bai Clan to new glory!"
Bang!Bai Cheng's face sank as he crushed the tea cup in his hand to powder, and it drifted out from the cracks between his fingers.
After that, he took a deep breath and said with an expressionless face, "Leave, I'll take it as I never heard all of this."
That person was stunned and seemed to not dare believe that Bai Cheng would refuse such generous conditions, and he said with unwillingness, "Elder Bai Cheng, if it wasn't out of respect for you, do you think…"
"Fuck off!" Bai Cheng interrupted him directly and shouted explosively with a low voice."
"You…" That person stood up swiftly, and his figure was wriggling in the shadows as if he was infuriated.
The door to the room was suddenly kicked open, causing splinters to fly through the air, and the radiant sunlight surged in from the outside and drove out the darkness within the entire room.
"How audacious! Who is it?" That person cried out with a sharp voice, and with the help of the radiant sunlight, one could clearly see that this person was a young man with a slim and white face.
He wore an embroidered robe with broad sleeves and a girdle. He possessed a gloomy and feminine bearing, and he gave others a ghastly and icy cold feeling.
After that, his voice stopped abruptly because a robust figure had appeared within his field of vision, and this figure was walking into the room with his hands behind his back.
Shockingly, this person was Bai Jingchen!
"You've come." Bai Cheng raised his head and glanced at Bai Jingchen before he spoke calmly.
"You… You…" That person's expression turned grim as he seemed to have never imagined that Bai Jingchen would appear here, and he was temporarily shocked to the point being at a loss for words.
"You my ass! You fucking bastard, don't you know whose territory this is?"
Bai Jingchen didn't even seem to have moved yet his cattail leaf fan sized hand had already slapped fiercely onto the young man's face, causing him to fall straight to the ground while blood sprayed from his mouth, and the young man cried out miserably. "You actually dared to hit me!?"
Bai Jingchen stomped fiercely onto the young man's body and cursed. "What a fucking pussy! Even if I kill trash like you, what the fuck can you do to me?"
As he spoke, he raised his leg and trampled on the young man, causing countless bones in the young man's body to be shattered. The young man's entire body was bathed in blood and he lay curled up on the ground while shivering in an extremely miserable state.
"Isn't it a little too…" Bai Cheng was slightly unable to bear the sight of this and spoke out.
"It's fine. This kid was asking for it. Since he dared to set his sights on me, then wasn't he looking for a beating?" Bai Jingchen spoke in a carefree manner.
Bai Cheng was stunned and seemed to be lost in thought.
"Bai Jingchen! So long as you don't care about the Bai Clan being destroyed, then go ahead and kill me right now!" The young man roared hysterically, and his face was covered in bloodstains and extremely hideous.
"Oh, you think I don't dare to kill you?" Bai Jingchen roared with laughter and was about to make a move as he spoke.
"Wait." Bai Cheng spoke abruptly and stopped him.
The shivering young man that lay curled up on the floor couldn't help but reveal a grim smile. "What? You don't dare to do it? Come on! Bai Jingchen, weren't you extremely arrogant?"
Bai Cheng suddenly picked up a chair and smashed it fiercely onto the young man.
Pieces of wood shot out in all directions while the entire body of the young man twitched from the intense pain that came from this hit, and he fainted.
The chair was constructed from top quality Yellowsilk Ironwood, and it was utilized like a weapon by Bai Cheng, so the force it contained was obviously terrifyingly powerful.
"Motherfucker! I fucking intended to let you off, but you just didn't know where to stop. You really are asking for a beating!" Bai Cheng cursed while he stretched out his gaunt palm and slapped the young man awake.
"You… You…" The young man was extremely weak, and he opened his eyes to look at the furious Bai Cheng and still didn't dare believe that all of this was real.
Bai Cheng laughed gloomily before he raised his leg and stepped on the young man's head, and then he gritted his teeth and said, "I've had enough of you fuckers. Fuck! You're just a little ant from the Zuoqiu Clan. You weren't even fucking born when I roamed through the world all those years ago!"
Bai Cheng bashed the young man as he cursed, and the force he exerted was even more ferocious than Bai Jingchen.
After a short moment, Bai Cheng stopped when only a pile of mush remained on the ground, and he said slowly, "Oh, I actually forgot to tell him that he wouldn't have died if he didn't ask for it."
Bai Jingchen roared with laughter. "Right, if you ask for it, then you have to die!"
He knew that from the moment Bai Cheng made a move and killed the young man, Bai Cheng had already displayed his intentions. In other words, the internal strife within the Bai Clan that had arisen because of the Zuoqiu Clan had ended completely today.
Now, they had to consider how to face the rage of the Zuoqiu Clan.
But Bai Jingchen didn't care. At the same time, he believed that his older brother, Bai Cheng, his younger sister, Bai Wanqing, and even all the clansmen of the Bai Clan didn't care.
If Bai Gunan was here and saw this scene, his eyeballs would absolutely fall out from shock, and then he would sigh with emotion — Domineeringness and arrogance was really in the blood of the Bai Clan.
Of course, when domineeringness and arrogance is coupled with equal amounts of strength, it was fearless courage and overbearing spirit!
When Chen Xi returned to the guest hall, he noticed that the entire hall was in a complete mess.
Bai Gunan was screaming while he held his head and ran about with fear.
Behind him, a cold and murderous figure was following in a neither fast nor slow speed. The figure carried a pitch black spear that was like a nimble whip, and it frequently whipped Bai Gunan's butt, causing a wave of crackling and oppressive sounds to resound out.
The cold figure wore pitch black battle armor, his hair was tied into a ponytail behind his head, and it revealed an extremely exquisite and handsome face. Moreover, he possessed jade white skin and facial features that were so perfect it seemed as if it was carved by the hands of god, causing him to be extremely breathtaking.
This was absolutely an appearance that was capable of making women feel envy. But his eyes were covered by a piece of black cloth, and it couldn't help but make people wonder exactly what sort of eyes were concealed beneath the cloth.
When Chen Xi saw this cold figure, he couldn't help but be shocked, and he recognized it as Mortis after a short period of time. But the helmet Mortis used to wear was gone, and this was why his appearance was revealed.
Ling Bai, Mu Kui, A'Man, and the others were laughing loudly at the side, and they seemed to be taking pleasure in Bai Gunan's misfortune.
"Chen Xi, quickly! Quickly help me subdue this damnable thing!" Bai Gunan noticed Chen Xi's appearance, and he seemed as if he'd met his savior and intended to charge over as he howled.
But before he could make a move, Mortis has slapped his spear onto Bai Gunan's butt, causing Bai Gunan to fall face first onto the ground and in an extremely sorry state.
Ling Bai and the others roared once more with laughter.
Chen Xi frowned when he saw this and moved forward to stand before Bai Gunan. Sure enough, Mortis instantly stopped attacking and stood there like an emotionless stone statue.
"What's going on?" Chen Xi helped Bai Gunan up.
"Hiss!" Bai Gunan held his waist and gasped endlessly with pain, and he was even unable to speak.
"He thought Mortis was a woman, so he pestered Mortis to remove the black cloth that covered Mortis' eyes, and this annoyed Mortis." Ling Bai's figure flashed and descended onto Chen Xi's shoulder before he spoke while chuckling.
Chen Xi raised his eyes and glanced at Mortis. He noticed that after Mortis removed his helmet, he was indeed extremely like a woman. Moreover, he was like one of those women that were beautiful to the limit. No wonder this profligate disciple, Bai Gunan, would pester Mortis to remove that piece of black cloth…
Chen Xi couldn't help but become speechless when he realized this. He helped inspect Bai Gunan's injuries, and he noticed they were only superficial injuries that hurt but wouldn't leave behind any residual effects, so he instantly relaxed because this meant that Mortis knew his limits when making a move.
"Dammit! How would I know a man would have such a drop dead gorgeous appearance!?" Bai Gunan had an appearance of heartache and deep regret.
When he spoke up to here, Bai Gunan suddenly realized something and said, "You've already met Little Aunt?"
Chen Xi nodded yet wasn't willing to speak on this topic.
"Then what are you going to do next?" Bai Gunan continued.
"Cultivate, and then make a trip to the Heavenflow Dao Sect."
Chen Xi had planned since a long time ago that he would enter into closed door cultivation in the sect after he left the Bai Clan and returned, and he would head to the Heavenflow Dao Sect when the time of the bet with Bing Shitian arrived!
"Oh? You've really decided to fight Bing Shitian? Come, let me see if your current strength is capable of going against Bing Shitian!" Right at this moment, a rough voice sounded out from outside the hall.
After that and before Chen Xi could react, a fist filled his entire field of vision.
A fist that seemed to carry the entire heavens and the earth with it!
