Bai Yunfei's lips twitched at the wyrm's message, his eyes looking a little helpless, "You...want to eat them. That'll probably won't do, it's a little excessive after all…."
The blue-eyes wyrm was simply thinking about 'eating' any human that dared try to kill it. It was survival of the fittest in the most simplest of terms, but that kind of ideology wouldn't work in this place. Even if they excluded four of the five people there, Cheng Xin was the son of one of the ministers, he couldn't be so easily killed and eaten like that.
While killing Cheng Xin would make Bai Yunfei feel slightly happy, it'd also bring down a great deal of trouble onto them all. Bai Yunfei had thought about this matter before, hence why he didn't kill Cheng Xin the first time.
While the five men were trying to figure out what was going on, Bai Yunfei was giving Xiao Lan's proposal some serious consideration.
"How about this," Bai Yunfei compromised, "we can break both their arms and call it there, alright?"
The blue-eyes wyrm didn't like that idea at all, but it agreed nonetheless. Bai Yunfei's opinion mattered greatly to the wyrm, and it was already used to following whatever plan Bai Yunfei had. The wyrm could only 'agree' with whatever it was Bai Yunfei was saying this time.
Cheng Xin and the others took immediate response to the compromise Bai Yunfei had. Shocked, the young man behind Cheng Xin was the first to respond, "What...what did he just say?! Did I hear that right? He said he was going to break our arms?!"
"Haha!! Is this person touched in the head?! What a joke, I'm dying here!" Another man by Cheng Xin's side roared out in scornful laughter.
The mid-stage Soul Exalt next to Cheng Xin had an odd look on his face, but it quickly gave way to anger. What Bai Yunfei said left him seeing red almost. He was making a mockery of them, and for people like them who spent their days living well beyond most others, how could they take such humiliation like that?
It was only Cheng Xin whose heart went still with dread when he heard what Bai Yunfei said. Fear gripped at his heart for a moment before the words of his companion snapped him back out of it. He couldn't show any fear right now. He had to maintain his face all the way to the end.
Not even caring for the reaction of the five, Bai Yunfei started to speak aloud, "Since you haven't stated your identities, I no longer care to find out. You've angered my friend here and tried to take advantage of it. Breaking both of your arms will serve as your discipline of sorts."
Breaking both arms would serve as discipline of sorts?!
The 'warning' Bai Yunfei was giving about their 'verdicts' angered the five people even more and caused several of them to start seeing red.
"You ignoramus of an idiot!! Who do you think you are?! Breaking both our arms? Fine!! Just try it! We'll be the ones breaking both your arms and legs! We'll show you we're not people to mess with!!"
The person next to Cheng Xin spat in anger, "Get him!!"
The reason why this person had all five people move at once wasn't because they knew how strong Bai Yunfei was. It was because they were afraid of the blue-eyes wyrm attacking them with Bai Yunfei. Preventing that didn't require much thought.
If a person that the blue-eyes wyrm obeyed without much thought appeared, would that person really be an early-stage Soul Exalt?
The five men moved in unison with each other to come rushing at Bai Yunfei with their soulforce blazing to life.
Xiao Qi was planning to make a move as well before Bai Yunfei stopped him (Bai Yunfei didn't want to risk Xiao Qi killing them with a Spatial Edge). It was a little laughable with how strong these people were. They were beneath his notice still, and with a flash of light from his Violet Soul Ring, Bai Yunfei fished the Cataclysmic Seal out from it.
There was a faint buzzing sound as the Cataclysmic Seal expanded into the size of a wall in front of Bai Yunfei before sweeping forward to meet the five.
"What is this?!"
The five of them grew alarmed when the Cataclysmic Seal came at them. Everyone crying at once, their first instinct was to back up, but with a late-stage Soul Exalt manipulating the Cataclysmic Seal, how could it possibly be dodged so easily?
There were several thuds as the Cataclysmic Seal slammed into them and knocked them away.
The Cataclysmic Seal returned to its normal size in a flash of light and returned to Bai Yunfei's side as a small red blur of light. The blow from the Cataclysmic Seal had brought Cheng Xin and the others back to their original locations, though each of their faces weren't filled with as much anger and loathing as before. They all looked rather panicked in fact.
One of the early-stage Soul Exalts hadn't been able to protect himself in time and belched out a mouthful of blood!
Of the entire group, it was Cheng Xin whose face was the whitest of them all. He had seen Bai Yunfei use the Cataclysmic Seal before, and he remembered seeing Bai Yunfei use the same soul armament to send his protector flying away through a wall after being hit with it.
But he didn't realize that this soul armament could expand in size!!
The 'leader' of the group looked displeased at the sight, but he wasn't fearing for his life just yet. They were a group of Soul Exalts after all, and this was only just a single strong soul armament. Something like that didn't mean they wouldn't be able to defeat Bai Yunfei.
"No wonder you were so arrogant if you were relying on a soul armament like that, pah! You think that'd be enough to deal with us? Split apart! We'll attack him from the gaps!"
Seemingly not wanting to offer up 'meaningless resistance', the group split up, much to Bai Yunfei's annoyance. The Cataclysmic Seal took flight again this time into the air. Looking up, Cheng Xin and his friends were all surprised to see a giant object come flying down onto their heads!
A panicked voice cried out before each of the five tried to bolt out from the impact area of the Cataclysmic Seal in a burst of elemental energy.
There was a snort from Bai Yunfei. It wasn't loud, but oddly enough, each of the five men felt their souls quake a moment their bodies locked up mid-flight!
By the time each of the five realized what was going on, they saw their bodies lean slightly away from the drop zone of the brick while sticking both their arms out….
A series of screams and grunts rang through the air as a mountainous of an object dropped down from the skies onto their arms with a great amount of strength.
Paralyzed in the new crater they found themselves in, the five men stared blankly at the sight in front of them.
Something completely beyond their understanding happened to them for a moment and knocked their minds out for a loop.
"Ah! Ah! Ahh! It hurts! It hurts!! What happened! What in the world happened?!"
The silence was broken afterwards as one of them starting scream as if they were being killed slowly. He had been the worst of the group and had his right thigh bent at an awkward angle. Sweat pooled his forehead as he screamed at the top of his lungs.
As if a chain reaction went off, the other early-stage Soul Exalts began to wail in pain as well.
The only one who was in relatively better shape was Cheng Xin due to his better level of strength. But like the others, his face was abnormally pain and twisted with pain. And even more prominent was the shock on his face.
Now that their resistance was stripped from them, Bai Yunfei slowly made his way down from the skies. Sweeping his eyes at the one wailing the most, Bai Yunfei waved his right hand. Under the amazed eyes of the five there, the Cataclysmic Seal smashed down onto the person's right arm!
