Wu Yang looked a little hesitant to speak after that. "Instructor Bai, one of these two is the son of the Prime Minister and the other is the son of the Minister of Justice, and the others…"
He glanced at the three knocked out or still-howling men next to Cheng Xin and Li Chen. "Are also the sons of some ministers in our empire. Is there a chance…"
Cheng Xin and Li Chen both brightened up, their eyes hopeful for what Wu Yang was starting to say.
But then Bai Yunfei's words immediately dashed their hopes….
Bai Yunfei shook his head before Wu Yang could even finish speaking. "If you're asking if I can be lenient on them, then don't bother. I can't let them get off so lightly after they tried to kill Xiao Lan."
"Furthermore…" Bai Yunfei looked at the already 'punished' three people there. "I've already punished half of them. To stop now wouldn't be fair."
Cheng Xin and Li Chen both wanted to cry out in anger. 'Unfair your mom!', they wanted to say. But the cold look Bai Yunfei gave the two of them immediately shut themselves up. Their hearts and bodies shivered as they stewed silently in their own panic.
"That…." Wu Yang hadn't thought that Bai Yunfei would be that determined about this. It wasn't as though he didn't care if these people were 'taught' or not. He had only tried for a moment to see if he could mediate the conflict. Since that didn't work, he decided to give up and shrug his shoulders. "You're the instructor. If you say it must be done, then it will be done. But there will definitely be some trouble in the future, please prepare yourself for it, instructor Bai."
"Trouble?" Bai Yunfei quirked his lips, "I knew that a long time ago. If I wasn't thinking about the potential troubles I would've had Xiao Lan eat those people and be done with it. That'd be real trouble. What this is right now is settled. If there's trouble, it'll come."
The reason why he stood against these men wasn't because of some righteous reason like for the soulbeasts the five tortured.
It was because Xiao Lan was an 'enemy' of these five, so he'd naturally stand with the wyrm.
"Fourff Prinff, you...you canf jusf leaf us here!! Saff us!!"
Bai Yunfei glared at Li Chen, sending a shiver up the man's spine before the Cataclysmic Seal slammed into his arm. Like his three other companions, he fell to the ground with his arms broken.
There was another two loud spikes in noise as Cheng Xin was unable to hold withstand the pressure of 'torment' anymore. Using up all his strength, he tried to escape as fast as possible in the opposite direction of Bai Yunfei!
His sudden dash for escape was surprising to the group as was his speed. In less than the blink of an eye, he was already over a dozen meters away due to the all-or-nothing attempt he was making.
Unfortunately for him, Bai Yunfei wasn't caught off guard by this. The Cataclysmic Seal flew forward and struck Cheng Xin squarely on his left shoulder. Despite the impact, Cheng Xin only grunted in pain while maintaining his escape.
In the next moment, he saw a black shadow come at him from the right….
It struck Cheng Xin with a muffled bang and sent the man flying away like a rocket. At some point, the wyrm had swung its tail like a baseball bat to send Cheng Xin flying!!
Cheng Xin's decision to try and make a break for it was one even worse than just staying here. His left arm had been broken by the Cataclysmic Seal, but his right arm had….been thwomped with the tail of the blue-eyes wyrm with righteous vengeance. The bones in his right arm would definitely be far worse than the ones in his left, and even if he was a Soul Exalt, his body would definitely need a great deal of time to heal from this….
Bai Yunfei wasn't trying to cripple anyone when he broke their arms. For soul cultivators like them, it'd require the amputation of both their arms in order to be considered crippled. The wounds in a soul cultivator's arm could still be healed no matter how bad it was. Bai Yunfei was only using the elemental fire in the Cataclysmic Seal to deal some relatively worse injuries onto the five here. At worse, it'd take longer than usual to heal, but there'd be no problems afterwards.
But it was much harder to say that about Cheng Xin's right hand….he got what he deserved.
With a plop, Cheng Xin tumbled to the ground far away from the group. His soulforce was at a lull and he didn't get back up after he was hit.
He had been knocked out.
Everyone grew silent, even the ones who had only just been screaming in pain a moment ago. For that one moment alone, the four of them thought themselves 'lucky'. Compared to Cheng Xin, they were only let off with a minor 'scratch'....
Bai Yunfei gave the proud looking blue-eyes wyrm a helpless look. "Well, you can get lost now." He addressed Li Chen.
The three men snapped back to attention at that. Gritting their teeth in pain as they got up, they began to use their soulforce to stabilize their wounds. Shakily, they loyally made their way over to the knocked out fourth person and Cheng Xin. Wrapping them in a bubble of elemental energy, the three then started their long and painful journey away.
As they left, several of them couldn't help but give Bai Yunfei looks of hatred and fear, only to have Bai Yunfei respond with a smile of his own.
Everyone was speechless after the five left.
Though none of the students saw what happened the events that led up to this situation, they all saw just how Bai Yunfei had broken the arms of Li Chen and Cheng Xin. Stunned, it was the very first time they had ever seen Bai Yunfei be so 'ruthless' like this—except for Fang Tianmeng who saw Bai Yunfei kill several people one after another.
Wu Yang watched Li Chen and his group hobble away with squirmed eyes, "Instructor Bai….you've...you've really done it…."
"Wow!! Instructor Bai is amazing!!"
There was a worshipful voice, prompting Wu Yang to fall into a state of shock—it had been his younger sister who spoke out this time!!
Her hands were still wrapped around Wu Yang's neck, but she was staring at Bai Yunfei's back with stars in her eyes.
Stiff as a statue, Wu Yang immediately said, "Sis—sister! What are you saying?!"
"I said instructor Bai is amazing! Those people were Soul Exalts!! He didn't even move and he beat them all up! Even what he said was….so amazing…."
Wu Yang was speechless.
What kind of logic was that!!
He felt pained by this. He had never heard of his sister using such logic like this before.
He had known about that earlier, he would've brought her out to see some of his fights. If he had, wouldn't he be her hero by now?!
Wu Yang had to admit he felt a little panicked at the look of worship his sister had in his eyes. If he had to put it into words, it felt like his younger sister was being 'stolen' away. "Sister, you are forbidden from worshipping instructor Bai, got it?"
"Why?" Wu Ping cocked her head in confusion.
"Because….because…." Wu Yang struggled to find an excuse, "Because our instructor's wife will feel jealous if you keep saying that! So don't worship instructor Bai from now on."
