“Oh?” The gold-clad old man’s interest was piqued the moment he heard Cheng He’s words. “What do you mean?”
Whether it was Ou Lie, the Clan Leader of Ou Clan or that blue-clad old man standing behind the golden-clad old man, both of them were looking at Cheng He curiously. It was apparent they were interested in this matter as well.
“Previously, Leng Chi had almost killed that woman. At the very last minute, he suddenly attacked me. Due to that, Leng Chi was distracted.” Cheng He added, “At that time, Leng Chi managed to injure him as well even though he managed to rescue that woman. If I didn’t ask Leng Chi to spare his life, he would’ve already died in Leng Chi’s hands.” Cheng He finished his words in one breath.
“This Variant is different than most types of rumored Variants. It’s said that most Variants are cold blooded. It’s very rare for them to show their true emotions, let alone sacrificing their own lives to rescue other people,” the gold-clad old man lamented.
“I don’t care if he’s different from other Variants. This time, I’ll pry the secret I want from his mouth!” Confidence was written on Cheng He’s face as his eyes gleamed coldly.
A day passed very quickly.
During the second day, a building complex in the far distance appeared before Cheng He and the other four.
“We’ve arrived at the Lu Clan,” the gold-clad old man announced.
As the Guild Master of the Weapons Craftsmen Guild’s Main Guild in the Southern Outer Land, this was not his first time going to the Lu Clan.
The difference was, in the past, he had always been treated as an honored guest in the Lu Clan whenever he went there and had always been warmly welcomed.
This was the first time he went there to kidnap a person from the Lu Clan.
Originally, he was unwilling to offend the Lu Clan, but the thing Cheng He promised him was just too tempting. Due to that, he decided to help Cheng He even though this meant he might ruin his friendship with the Lu Clan.
“That way!” When they arrived above the Lu Clan’s estate, Cheng He immediately looked toward the eastern side of the Lu Clan’s estate. His body moved with a flash as he flew out and arrived at the sky above that area in just a blink of an eye.
Following behind Cheng He was Ou Lie and the gold-clad old man. Further behind them were Leng Chi and the blue-clad old man.
The blue-clad old man was just like Leng Chi. If Leng Chi was described as Cheng He’s shadow, then this blue-clad old man would be the gold-clad old man’s shadow.
As the only well-known grade one alchemist in the Southern Outer land, and the Guild Master of the Alchemist Guild’s Main Guild in the Southern Outer Land, the gold-clad old man highly regarded by the Inner Land’s Alchemist Guild. For this reason, the Inner Land’s Alchemist Guild sent the blue-clad old man to protect him.
Soon after, Cheng He and the other four arrived at the sky above a spacious residence.
“Duan Ling Tian! Show your ass now!” Cheng He roared loudly without any warning. The Origin Energy in his voice swept out, spreading to the entire Lu Clan’s estate.
For a moment, the entire Lu Clan’s estate erupted in an uproar.
“Somebody’s here to look for Elder Duan?”
“Asking Elder Duan to ‘show his ass’ the instance he arrives? Looks like these visitors didn’t come with good intention!”
Many of the Lu Clan’s disciples discussed among themselves.
They were no strangers to Duan Ling Tian’s name. After all, he was the only grade one alchemist in their Lu Clan.
Although those people obviously came with bad intentions to target Duan Ling Tian, none of them were really worried. In their opinion, their Lu Clan was one of the strongest clans in the Northern Mountain Land so they would be able to protect Elder Duan well.
However, contrary to the Lu Clan’s disciples’ optimism, the Clan Leader of Lu Clan, Lu Rui’s face was extremely grave. “Damn it! It’s that Cheng He again!”
Previously, Cheng He had left in disappointment. After three months, he finally made his appearance again. He definitely came with bad intention.
“It looks like Cheng He has found himself support.” Lu Rui and the three great Guardian Elders of Lu Clan gathered and rose up into the air. They could not see the faces of the five figures standing in the distance.
However, they knew one of them had to be Cheng He.
They had a feeling Leng Chi, who always followed and guarded Cheng He, was there as well.
“Let’s go have a look… Let’s see who Cheng He brought with him that he had the confidence to come back again!” Lu Yuan who was as fat as a ball took the lead to fly out first. His eyes gleamed coldly.
Lu Rui, Lu Gui, and Lu Zhi followed closely behind him,
In just a few moments, the four of them had also arrived at the sky above the eastern side of the Lu Clan’s estate.
There were already two people locked in a deadlock with Cheng He and the other four at the sky above the eastern side of the Lu Clan’s estate. The atmosphere was extremely heavy as though it would explode at any given time.
Lu Rui was not unfamiliar with these two people.
They could see the two were none other than the woman always beside Duan Ling Tian, the First Interim Advisor of their Lu Clan, and the middle-aged man who always followed Elder Duan everywhere.
“Looks like Duan Ling Tian has become a coward! How dare he asks a woman like you to come out instead. However, other than Duan Ling Tian, you’re my target as well this time!” Cheng He said casually. His eyes gleamed when he looked at the red-clad woman standing nearby.
“You… dare to insult him?” Almost at the instant Cheng He’s words left his mouth, flames skyrocketed from the beautiful woman’s body before it solidified into a sword-shaped flame. Her voice was icy, and she looked at Cheng He as though he was a dead man.
After she said that, and before Cheng He had time to respond, she made her move.
A five-foot-long sword slashed out as her body followed suit. The tip of the sword-shaped flame was fixed on Cheng He and approaching at an extremely fast speed. It was as though she had transformed into a bolt of fiery lightning. It was so fast that Cheng He paled instantly.
‘It has only been three months… How’s it possible that her strength has gone up so much?’ There was only one thought in Cheng He’s mind.
Meanwhile, the sword-shaped flame had already arrived near Cheng He. The speed was so fast that Cheng He could barely dodge the attack.
“Hurmph!” A snort sounded in the air. Cheng He’s heart was thumping rapidly in his chest, and he was incredibly tensed.
In the next moment, a flash of green figure materialized in front of Cheng He. The moment Cheng He saw the green figure, he breathed a sigh of relief. He instantly relaxed, and his heartbeat gradually returned to normal.
He knew he was no longer in danger since that person in front had made his move.
Just as this thought appeared Cheng He’s mind, the green figure charged toward Feng Tian Wu and clashed with the fiery red sword that Feng Tian Wu had transformed into with her sword as a loud explosion reverberated in the air.
As the two waves of energy clashed together, the airstream in the air exploded and set off a series of vibrating airwaves. The airwaves spread out in all directions and continued to transform into a flurry of hurricanes.
Whoosh! Whoosh! Whoosh!
The hurricanes were so huge that it seemed as though the eastern side of the Lu Clan’s estate was attacked by some sort of demonic wind. Some of the servants with low cultivation base were miserably blown away.
As for the crowd in the air, only their robes fluttered loudly in the wind. None of them were injured at all.
Their gazes were trained on the two people who were clashing.
The two of them finally separated after the loud explosion.
The energy swimming around the green figure had dissipated and revealed his true identity — it was a green-clad middle-aged man.
Because of his fast attack, the Heaven and Earth Energy that was whirring above his head did not even have time to gather into Heaven and Earth Phenomenon before it dissipated.
Unlike the green-clad middle-aged man who remained unmoved in his spot, the fiery red gigantic sword transformed from both human and sword was sent flying back before finally coming to a stop a few dozen meters away.
“Barf!” The sword-shape flame died down, the red-clad woman holding a five-foot-long flexible red sword spat out a mouthful of blood. Her delicate face was extremely pale.
The Heaven and Earth Phenomenon gathered by the Heaven and Earth Energy above the red-clad woman’s head began to disperse.
It was the silhouettes of 2,000 ancient horned dragons and a silhouette that was a dozen times bigger than the ancient horned dragons that were spiraling as it descended.
It was also a dragon, but not an ancient horned dragon. Its body was tough and long, like an ancient horned dragon that was magnified a dozen times.
Naturally, the details were totally different as well.
Whether it was the sharp claws or the scales on its body, this dragon exuded a majestic aura. The ancient horned dragons were not comparable to it.
If the ancient horned dragons were considered as young dragons, this dragon would be like a matured dragon. Not only were the details on its body completely different from ancient horned dragons, but even the head was different from the ancient horned dragon.
The ancient horned dragon’s head looked slightly ferocious, a little different than the legendary divine dragon with pure bloodline. However, this dragon that was a dozen times bigger than an ancient horned dragon was not too different from the legendary divine dragon.
Moreover, its pair of sharp eyes were constantly emitting a majestic aura.
“The silhouette of the ancient black dragon!” Lu Rui, the Clan Leader of Lu Clan, was shocked when he saw this.
Lu Yuan was staring at the scene before his eyes in bewilderment. His small eyes were as big as saucers as he muttered to himself, “Clan Leader, d-didn’t you say Miss Tian Wu can only cast over 8,000 ancient horned dragons’ strength at the most? H-How’s this possible?!”
“Miss Tian Wu’s attack could mobilize the Heaven and Earth Energy to gather into silhouettes of one ancient black dragon and 2,000 ancient horned dragons… !” Lu Zhi said solemnly.
“The strength of an ancient black dragon is formed from 10,000 ancient horned dragons. If it’s calculated using ancient horned dragons, Miss Tian Wu’s current strength is equivalent to the strength of 12,000 ancient horned dragons!” Lu Gui gasped.
This was a far cry from the strength of over 8,000 ancient horned dragons that their Clan Leader told them about!
“I-I didn’t know too…” Lu Rui was staring in shock at the red-clad woman who was heavily injured in the distance. His face was completely blank.
He could not understand what he was seeing at all.
“Don’t tell me Miss Tian Wu has been holding back her strength all this while?” Although he did not really believe this, he really could not come up with another plausible explanation.
