Translator: EndlessFantasy Translation Editor: EndlessFantasy Translation
Right away, the entire swift boat fell into a deep panic.
“Is it the group of pirates from just now?” Somebody asked immediately.
“It’s another group of pirates!” The Yin Yang Sect elder who stood in front of the swift boat replied with a sallow expression.
Another group of pirates?
At once, all of the people on the swift boat turned ashen as all that was in their minds now was just how unlucky they were.
How long had it just been?
Coming across two groups of pirates in succession?
“Hmph! Count yourselves lucky!” After the other Yin Yang Sect elder, who was looking into Duan Ling Tian’s eyes threw a dirty glance at him, he turned around and walked towards the other elder who was by the front of the swift boat before teaming up together with him.
From the very beginning, Duan Ling Tian remained calm, and there seemed to be no sign of panic on his face at all. He neither reacted to the Yin Yang Sect elder’s wrath, nor did he feel frantic about the group of pirates who were making their way here.
“Little brother, if we can really survive this time, it’d be better if you guys just hand over the Origin Stones.” Right now, the old man, who was not far away, looked at Duan Ling Tian as he sighed, “We really can’t afford to offend the Yin Yang Sect members! There’s no need to sacrifice your life just for the sake of a momentary burst of anger.”
“Senior, no matter when, I’ll never agree to any ridiculous request,” Duan Ling Tian smiled and replied carefreely.
“You…” The old man was at a loss for words. For a moment, all he could do was just murmur, “Fools rush in where angels fear to tread” under his breath.
“This group of pirates is here in just four miniature swift boats?” Xiong Quan asked. His gaze was locked in front where he saw the four miniature swift boats flying swiftly right there.
Right then, many people saw it too.
“Only four miniature swift boats?”
“It looks like it must be a small group of pirates! They don’t have as many people like the group of pirates earlier!”
“The two Yin Yang Sect elders must be able to handle such a small group, right?”
Many people were discussing amongst each other. From their tones, it was apparent that they looked down a lot on the pirates in the four miniature swift boats.
However, many other people, including Duan Ling Tian and the two Yin Yang Sect elders, did not think so at all.
In their opinions, if a single pirate who possessed powerful martial prowess was part of the group of pirates making their way there now, they could easily annihilate all of them even if it was just one miniature swift boat.
In the Cloud Continent, the strong ones were revered. The number of people did not decide the victory of a battle between martial artists.
It was just like the case if ten Void Transformation Stage martial artists came across a Martial Monarch. The latter could slaughter them all in just a span of a few breaths.
Taking the Void Transformation Stage martial artist as an example again, a powerhouse who had reached the peak of the Void could also slaughter many low-level Void Transformation Stage martial artists easily.
Whoosh! Whoosh! Whoosh! Whoosh!
A few moments later, the four miniature swift boats arrived and surrounded the front, back, left and right of the Yin Yang Sect’s swift boat.
At the same time, the Yin Yang Sect’s swift boat had also come to a halt.
Even though the group of pirates who appeared did not ask the Yin Yang Sect’s swift boat to stop, in the current situation now, there was no use at all even if the swift boat continued to keep moving. If the opponents decided to launch an attack on the swift boat, everyone present onboard would die.
In this case, they might as well be more sensible and take the initiative to stop the boat so as to avoid the swift boat from being damaged.
Whoosh! Whoosh! Whoosh!
Just as the swift boat stabilized, a series of wind-whistling sounds echoed and before most of the people realized what was happening, four figures had already streaked out of nowhere on top of the swift boat.
An old man dressed in a long golden robe stood in front of the swift boat. The old man hovered in the air as if he had merged together with the surroundings, oozing with a sense of invisible pressure.
Two silver-robed old men stood on each side of the swift boat. These two silver-robed old men had one similarity: they were identical to each other.
They were a pair of twins!
Standing right there, they also gave off a sense of pressure, and while it was not as strong as the golden-robe man’s, it was more or less the same.
Another middle-aged man in copper robes stood behind the swift boat. The middle-aged man swept every corner of the swift boat and finally landed on a red figure.
“What a beautiful woman!” The person at whom he was staring was none other than Feng Tian Wu. The ultimately beautiful features of Feng Tian Wu that could topple an entire nation was enough to captivate all living creatures and make any guy fell for her.
In that instance, greediness and lust rose up in the eyes of the copper-robed man as an evil smile crept up towards the corners of his mouth. The middle-aged man opened his mouth and broke the silence and the oppressive atmosphere on the swift boat. “My three brothers, you’ll have a sister-in-law from today onwards.”
Right at this moment, there seemed to be only Feng Tian Wu and the other three companions of his in the world in the eyes of the copper-robed man.
As for the other people, they were completely ignored by him.
Swish! Swish! Swish!
At once, the golden-robed old man and the two silver-robed old men shifted their glances at Feng Tian Wu in unison. Three pairs of eyes lit up at the same time right away.
“What a strikingly beautiful woman!” The golden-robed old man praised.
“Such a beautiful lady is indeed worthy of our Fourth Brother,” one of the silver-robed old men lamented.
“I can’t believe that there’d be such a charming woman in this Yin Yang Sect’s swift boat. Fourth Brother, you really are lucky this time!” Another silver-robed old man chuckled.
“Haha…” Upon hearing the words of these three old men, the middle-aged man in copper robes laughed, pleased with himself.
However, he did not realize that at that moment, the purple-clad young man, who was standing by the woman that he had taken a fancy to, glared at him, his narrowed eyes filled with a chilling, blood-curdling intention to kill.
“You…” Seeing somebody saying such profanity to his own Young Master’s woman, his future Young Miss, Xiong Quan was immediately consumed with rage. His sturdy body trembled as he about to make his move.
“I’ll be the one who kills him.” A calm voice entered Xiong Quan’s ears and stopped him in time.
At the same time, Feng Tian Wu stood up, her red dress on her body fluttering without any wind like a glob of flame that was burning intensely. As it was burning viciously, it soared up high in the air and emitted gushes of hot aura.
The hot aura rolled out and transformed into gusts of burning airwaves, setting off a series of scorching hurricanes that made the crowd on the swift boat felt like as though they were in a volcano.
“Haha… Fourth Brother, looks like your future wife has quite a short temper. It’s not so easy to control her, you know.” One of the silver-robed old men laughed.
“If she’s easily controlled, what difference would she make compared to the other ordinary girls? This is the type of girl that I like. She’s hot!” The copper-robed middle-aged man extended his tongue out to lick his dry lips. When he looked at Feng Tian Wu again, his eyes shone even brighter.
At the same time, the copper robe on his body began to flutter as well.
“You guys… You guys are the Four Southern River Thugs!” Just as a battle was on the verge of exploding between Feng Tian Wu and the copper-robed man, a voice shouted out loud and attracted everyone’s attention.
The person who had shouted out loud was one of the Yin Yang Sect elders. Blood drained from his face as he stared in horror at the golden-robed old man in front of him as though he had just seen a ghost.
“T-The Four Southern River Thugs?” At the same time, the color also drained from the other Yin Yang Sect elder’s face right away. Despair could even be seen in his eyes.
“The Four Southern River Thugs? What is that? Why do these two Yin Yang Sect elders have such huge reactions?”
“I’ve never heard of them before…. But I think they must be powerful! Otherwise, these two Yin Yang Sect elders wouldn’t have lost their cool like that!”
“That’s right! The two Yin Yang Sect elders weren’t even in this state when they faced the group of pirates just now. It looks like these four pirates are stronger than the group of pirates just now.”
“Then, what shall we do now?”
Looking at the expressions of the two Yin Yang Sect elders, dread befell everybody on the swift boat right away. Despair started to spread among them and soon became beyond their control.
“Don’t tell me that they are actually the… F-Four Southern River Thugs?” Suddenly, a middle-aged man seemed to be hit by realization as his face turned pale at once.
“Why? Have you heard of them before?” Many people shifted their gaze towards the middle-aged man right away.
“If they really are the Four Southern River Thugs, then all of us can just dismiss the idea of surviving today anymore,” the middle-aged man’s face went completely pale as he muttered in a low voice, “The Four Southern River Thugs are one of the strongest among the many pirate groups in the south of the Ruo Shui River. Among them, the Gold Thug is a powerhouse on the Sixth Level Martial Monarch Stage! The two Silver Thugs are on the Fifth and Fourth Level Martial Monarch Stage respectively! Even the weakest Copper Thug is on the Third Level Martial Monarch Stage!”
As the middle-aged man reached the end of his sentence, his body started to tremble violently in fear.
The people on the swift boats swept a horrified glance at the golden-robed old man, the silver-robed old men, and the copper-robed middle-aged man and started to turn pale right away.
“You two must be the Yin Yang Sect elder, aren’t you? I guess it must your unlucky day having to meet us, the Four Southern River Thugs.” The golden-robed old man, who was also known as the Gold Thug, stole a casual glance at the two pale Yin Yang Sect elders.
When the two Yin Yang Sect elders saw the Gold Thug looking their way and saying such words, the color drained from their faces right away.
One of the Yin Yang Sect elders pleaded with a horrified expression, “Senior Gold Thug, today is your brother’s big day, so please have mercy on us! We’re willing to hand all of the high-grade Origin Stones that we have over to you!”
“Big day?” Gold Thug was a little stunned.
“T-That’s right! Didn’t your brother take a liking towards that woman already? She is a rare, ultimate beauty and if your brother could marry her, it must be his blessing of three reincarnations!” The other Yin Yang Sect elder hastily piped in.
When he reached there, he had even stolen a glance at the copper-robed middle-aged man and the red-clad woman who were at a stalemate in the distance.
The woman in red was none other than Feng Tian Wu.
The moment she heard the Yin Yang Sect elder’s words, her icy face was instantly covered with another layer of frost as she emitted a gust of icy aura that was unfriendly and unapproachable.
Her pair of autumn eyes were now gleaming coldly as though she was about to devour a certain somebody.
Duan Ling Tian’s expression darkened right away. His eyes that were extremely cold now were staring at the two Yin Yang Sect elders as though they were a pair of dead men. Nobody knew when, but his pair of palms were already balled up tightly.
Right now, when many people on the Yin Yang Sect’s swift boat looked at the two elders, disdain was written on the faces of each and every one of them.
It had never crossed their minds that these two Yin Yang Sect elders would take a woman to be their shield in order to save their own lives.
Of course, there were also many people who were looking at the Gold Thug anxiously, hoping that he would let go of them because of this.
“Hmph! Are you trying to say that my Fourth Brother isn’t worthy of her?” Upon hearing the Yin Yang Sect elders’ words, the Gold Thug’s face hardened as killing intention gleamed in his eyes with his golden robe starting to flutter as well.
