“Gasp, master of Violet Cloud Peak?” Xiao Yi gasped and was secretly delighted. Fortunately, he was not the one in this position.
“Hehe, Lin Feng, you’re dead for sure this time! Who told you to act all high and mighty in front of me? The head of the seven peaks, that is the most respected existence in the Heaven Mending Sect apart from the Sect Master. Provoking him is the same as provoking the entire Heaven Mending Sect. You’re just a small Lin family. You’re not even enough for them.”
Although he was secretly delighted, Xiao Yi also felt terrible. The more terrifying the other party’s background was, the more stable his image as a filial son would be. He had to be filial. Otherwise, if he suddenly came to the Xiao Family to take a look, he would be done for. Even now, he still hadn’t forgotten what Ye Qiu had said to him back then. He was scared to death.
“Young Master!” Upon hearing that Ye Qiu was the head of the seven peaks of the Heaven Mending Sect, the two elders behind Lin Feng immediately walked out and pulled Lin Feng back.
An old man said apologetically with a grave expression, “Fellow Daoist, my young master is young and ignorant. He offended you. I hope that you will forgive him for his mistake.”
“Hmm?” Ye Qiu teased, “That’s not right. Shouldn’t I be the one saying that? I was still thinking about how to beg the Eldest Young Master Lin to forgive me. Why is it the other way around now?”
The old man’s face sank. It was extremely unsightly. He obviously understood what Ye Qiu meant.
At this time, another old man beside him said unhappily. “Sir, don’t go overboard! We have already apologized. It’s not like our Lin Clan doesn’t have a temper. Don’t push your luck…”
Ye Qiu was amused. He spread out his hands and gestured for Lin Qingzhu to retreat. “So there’s no room for discussion? Very good! You have a temper, I like it…” As soon as he finished speaking, his aura instantly rose explosively, and the aura of a Hidden Life completely erupted.
The expressions of the two old men changed and they pushed Lin Feng back instantly. The two of them blocked him at the same time.
The battle was about to begin. Ye Qiu stood alone in the air. He lightly pointed with his right hand, and all the plants and the surrounding trees started to move as violent winds blew.
“What shocking sword energy!”
Ming Yue was secretly shocked. Although she had already guessed that Ye Qiu’s strength was extraordinary, she didn’t expect that his swordsmanship cultivation had already reached such a level.
Ming Yue was even more shocked when she felt the sharp sword energy flowing around her.
Once the aura was exposed, everyone in the surroundings was attracted. Everyone was very puzzled and discussed.
“Who is fighting?”
“It seems like the two powerful beings from the Lin Clan are fighting with a young man.”
“Who is that person?”
Everyone was puzzled, but they could sense from the aura of the young man’s sword energy that it was extremely terrifying.
The surrounding vegetation moved along with his sword energy, becoming incomparably sharp. In the violent winds, the slightest carelessness would cause them to be injured by the vegetation.
Once the sword energy was exposed, the giant ape below immediately became violent.
“Roar…” With a furious roar, the giant ape started killing the surrounding cultivators.
In the sky, Ye Qiu had been watching the giant ape’s movements the entire time. He saw that the giant ape wanted to escape from the encirclement and he didn’t want to tangle with those two old men.
“My time is limited! I’ll see if I can kill all of you with a single strike. If I can’t, then forget it…” After saying that, Ye Qiu pointed his finger and an enormous phantom sword slashed down from above.
Like a violent storm, the vegetation in the Hundred Mile Wastelands stirred.
The two old men looked as if they were facing a great enemy. Their faces were pale, but they did not dare to retreat. Once they retreated, Lin Feng would be dead.
“Go!” The two of them looked at each other and decided to resist this strike together. The other party had also said that they would only need to resist one strike to survive.
In an instant, two powerful forces erupted. The two old men withstood the might of the giant sword and drew out all their treasured weapons. Then, a huge disc went up to meet the attack.
It was as if there was a rain of swords in the sky. Under the powerful impact, the two Hidden Life experts were sent flying.
“Pfft…” They spat out a mouthful of blood. They had been severely injured with just a single strike.
“This… How is that possible? They couldn’t even withstand a single strike?” Lin Feng’s heart was filled with terror, and his face was deathly pale. He almost lost his life as the sword aura descended.
“Hmm, looks like I’m still not too familiar with it!” Seeing that his opponent wasn’t dead, Ye Qiu shook his head in disappointment and didn’t continue.
Just now, he had only used a single move, Dazzling in the Grass, and he had already heavily injured two Hidden Life experts. Even though he didn’t kill his opponent, Ye Qiu was still very satisfied with the effect of this move. After all, the other party had used a treasured weapon. Otherwise, they would have died.
Moreover, he did not even use the Cloudy Heavens Sword.
When they saw Ye Qiu showcasing his power, Lin Qingzhu, Ming Yue, and the Sky Water Peak disciples were all shocked.
“Martial Uncle Ye is actually this terrifying?” Liu Ruyan’s voice trembled as she spoke. They didn’t think that this gentle and refined martial uncle had such a domineering side. It was truly amazing.
“It would appear that the rumors are all false. Our Martial Uncle isn’t a piece of trash like the rumors say. Instead, he is an absolute expert.”
“Too overbearing! This sword art actually has such power.”
“Since when did the Violet Cloud Peak have such terrifying sword art?”
Everyone could not help but be curious. Ming Yue’s brows were tightly furrowed, and she had many doubts in her heart. However, now was not the time to think about this. The giant ape below was about to break free from the encirclement.
Ming Yue didn’t hesitate any longer and instantly slapped down from above. “Where are you going…”
The aura of the Hidden Life erupted instantly. Instantly, everyone present was shocked once again. Who would have thought that this voluptuous and weak woman was also a Hidden Life expert?
The scene was instantly in chaos. In the midst of the chaos, the two elders who had been heavily injured by Ye Qiu took advantage of the chaos to bring Lin Feng away.
Ye Qiu didn’t chase after them. He turned his head to look at Lin Qingzhu and said, “Stay here and don’t move. I’ll be right back.”
“Okay…” Lin Qingzhu didn’t dare to move and could only follow behind Liu Ruyan. The scene was too chaotic. If they were careless, they would be attacked. As small cultivators, they could only stay together.
Diving down, Ye Qiu headed straight for the giant ape.
“Roar…” The giant ape flew into a rage after being surrounded. With a furious roar, it erupted with a powerful bone text power.
“Haha, this precious bone is mine…” An elderly man in a gray Daoist robe laughed loudly as he drew a blood-colored saber and slashed toward the giant ape.
This person was an elder from the Immortal Mountain Holy Land. His strength was also in the Hidden Life realm, and he knew Ming Yue.
Ming Yue’s palm retreated without injury. The giant ape’s defensive power was too astonishing; it was difficult for it to deal a fatal blow.
“Damn it! We can’t let this old man take the bone!” Ming Yue was anxious. She turned around and saw that Ye Qiu had already arrived.
Just as she was about to say something, Ye Qiu walked up.
“I’m afraid you won’t be able to take this precious bone!” Ye Qiu sneered and moved his right hand slightly. A sword energy condensed in his hand and slashed towards the giant ape.
“Not good! Stop him…” Li Changkong was shocked and immediately shouted once he saw that Ye Qiu took advantage of the situation to attack when the giant ape was being held back by a few Hidden Life experts and was about to take the treasure bone.
In that instant, a person charged out from the side, wanting to stop Ye Qiu. But Ye Qiu dodged the attack. His sword accurately struck the giant ape.
“Roar…” The giant ape let out a furious roar under the intense pain. Energy began to flow out of its body, and fresh blood gushed out.
Seeing that the giant ape was seriously injured, everyone couldn’t sit still and immediately took action, wanting to take away the precious bone. Unexpectedly, Ye Qiu had already quietly stabbed his sword into the giant ape’s body and retrieved the precious bone.
“Damn it…” Li Changkong cursed and his gaze changed. He wanted to sneak attack Ye Qiu while he wasn’t paying attention. Just as he was about to make a move, he suddenly realized that Ming Yue had already locked onto him.
“These two are in cahoots…” Li Changkong immediately understood that it was impossible to launch a sneak attack.
Moreover, from the terrifying aura that Ye Qiu had just released, his strength was above his own. If they really fought, he would definitely be at a disadvantage. Helpless, he could only give up.
