Chapter 1147 Innate Ability
Like a gust of wind, a strong man in a fiery-red robe blocked Yang Xue and the other two’s path.
The strong man had a full beard and long gray hair that fluttered in the wind. Light gray flames rose and dance continuously on his body.
He had thick eyebrows. A hint of nobility could be seen between his brows. There was no need for him to intentionally show his nobility.
The eyes below the thick eyebrows were calmly staring at the three ladies. It was as though they were nothing in his eyes.
At this moment, that good-for-nothing kid who was following Ke’er went to the strong man. The strong man was none other than the Peak Master of Yang Peak, Yang Hong.
“Fei’er.” Affection could be seen in Yang Hong’s eyes when he looked at that young man. The young man, Yang Fei, was his only son.
“Father, I want to marry her today!” Yang Fei looked at Ke’er lecherously as he pointed at her. “I don’t want to wait any longer!”
“Don’t worry.” Yang Hong smiled affectionately. “I’ll let her marry you today… However, you must not disappoint me. Give me a grandchild soon.”
“Yes.” Yang Fei nodded excitedly after getting Yang Hong’s consent.
Meanwhile, Ke’er’s bright eyes gleamed coldly after she heard the father and son’s conversation. She said determinedly, “I rather die than betray my Young Master! Give up that thought.”
“I’ll have my father kill Li Fei if you refuse to marry me.” Yang Fei grinned. He looked at Li Fei smugly as though he had already won.
Li Fei’s beautiful face turned somber as killing intent shone in her eyes. It was as though she wanted to cut Yang Fei into pieces.
She ignored Yang Fei.
Inwardly, she had already made up her mind. She would rather die than let others use her to threaten Sister Ke’er.
“Peak Master Yang Hong!” Yang Xue spoke at this moment. Her face turned colder as she enunciated each word carefully with her deep voice, “Aren’t you afraid that my master and the Peak Master of Yin Peak will look for you once they come out since you dare to threaten our Yin Peak’s disciples?”
“Hahaha…” Yang Hong laughed uproariously as soon as Yang Xue was done speaking. There was a hint of gloating in his laughter. “Are you talking about your master and the Peak Master of Yin Peak? Do you really think they didn’t hear you when you went to the forbidden area to find them?”
“So naive!” Yang Hong glared at Yang Xue in disdain. “I visited them at the Yin Peak’s forbidden area on the second day of their closed-door cultivation… I must say, their abilities aren’t bad. Although they were badly injured, they managed to withstand thirty hits from me when they fought together.”
“Before your master died, she kneeled and begged me to let the three of you go. Now that I remember, it’s pretty sad… Tsk tsk,” Yang Hong mocked them with a smile on his face.
“Master!” When Yang Xue, Ke’er, and Li Fei heard Yang Hong’s words, their expressions changed drastically. Tears streamed down their faces as they cried.
Their master was dead?
She was killed by Yang Hong?
Their master was still worried about them even at the moment before her death?
At this moment, their hearts ached.
They remembered vividly all those times they spent with their master.
Li Fei’s eyes were red as she stared at Yang Hong vengefully. She asked coldly, “Why did you do that?”
At this moment, Yang Xue and Ke’er were also looking at Yang Hong vengefully.
“Why did I do that?” Yang Hong smile widened. “Good question!”
“Yang Peak and Yin Peak have co-existed for thousands of years in the Yin Yang Sect… However, for the past hundreds of years, there’s no mention of the Sect Leader when outsiders talk about the Yin Yang Sect. They would only talk about the Peak Master of Yin Peak and Yang Peak. This is because we don’t have a Sect Leader for the past hundreds of years.”
“However, it’s different now… With the death of the Peak Master of Yin Peak, I no longer have to share the spotlight with anyone. I’ll be the first Sect Leader in Yin Yang Sect in hundreds of years!” Yang Hong said. There was delight on his face and a hint of insanity in his eyes.
“Ke’er, Fei’er, I’ll perform Ice Seal on Yang Hong when he’s unaware… Run as fast as you can! Leave Yang Peak and find a place to hide before he breaks free from the Ice Seal,” Yang Xue said to Ke’er and Li Fei through Voice Transmission. She looked solemn as though she had already made up her mind.
“Senior Sister, if we leave, you’re leaving with us!”
“Senior Sister, we won’t leave you here on your own.” Ke’er and Li Fei’s expressions changed when they heard Yang Xue’s words through Voice Transmission.
Naturally, they knew about the Ice Seal that their Senior Sister mentioned. It was the innate ability Yang Xue possessed as a Variant.
It could freeze an area to restrain everyone within the area for a short period of time.
However, if she wanted to restrain a powerhouse like Yang Hong, she would need to drain her Life Energy to maintain the Ice Seal.
In other words, their Senior Sister planned to sacrifice herself to pave a way for their future!
Yang Hong and his son saw Ke’er and Li Fei’s faces change. However, they did not put much thought into it since they assumed the two women were afraid.
“Ke’er, Fei’er, listen to me… If both of you don’t leave now, all of us will die here today! If that happens, there’ll be nobody left to avenge our master,” Yang Xue said sternly through Voice Transmission. “Take care of yourselves after you leave… With your talent, as long as both of you stay alive, you’ll be able to avenge me and master in the future!” Ke’er and Li Fei fell silent after they heard Yang Xue’s words through Voice Transmission.
It was the first time their Senior Sister spoke so sternly to them. They understood her intention.
Even if they did not want to live for themselves, they had to live for their master and Senior Sister!
At this moment, Ke’er and Li Fei looked at each other. They could see the sorrow and determination in each other’s bright eyes.
“Go!” A cold command suddenly resounded in the air. It sounded thunderous in Ke’er and Li Fei’s ears.
Ke’er and Li Fei who were both prepared suddenly flew away. They were like two bolts of lightning as they headed in the opposite direction of Yang Peak. As long as they could leave Yang Peak, they would be able to enter the mountain that had a complicated terrain.
Their chances of survival were high if they could make it into the mountain.
Meanwhile, the Peak Master of Yang Peak who was startled by Yang Xue’s shout turned somber. He looked at the two silhouettes who were running away at this moment.
“Father! Get them!” Yang Fei urged when he regained his senses.
However, when Yang Hong was about to chase after Ke’er and Li Fei, he noticed a wave of extremely cold aura sweeping toward him and his son before it enveloped them.
All of a sudden, the air around them seemed to have turned to ice. He could feel the cold piercing his body as though it was attempting to freeze him and turn him into an ice sculpture.
“Fei’er!” The cold was insignificant to Yang Hong. It was so insignificant to the point that he got rid of the cold that had pierced his son’s body with just a raise of his arm.
“Yang Xue, I didn’t expect you to hide your ability this well. You’ve comprehended the Ice Profundity!” Yang Hong stared at Yang Xue as he brought his son along with him. He was about to kill Yang Xue so he could chase after the two ladies who escaped.
However, his expression changed soon after.
He noticed that the air was turning colder and colder. In just a blink of an eye, a layer of hard ice formed and trapped him and his son within it.
He attacked in a frenzy, but his attack only left an insignificant crack on the hard ice.
Soon after, he saw a change in Yang Xue’s expression before she spat out a mouthful of blood when he attacked the hard ice.
Yang Xue continued to hover in the air. There was a determined expression on her pale face. Although her body was trembling, she seemed to be still holding on.
At this moment, Yang Xue’s silky black hair began to turn white. At this rate, her black hair would turn completely white in no time at all.
Yang Fei’s expression changed as he watched the two silhouettes escaping in the opposite direction of Yang Peak. They were going to disappear from his sight soon. He panicked and urged his father, “Father! Quick! They’re getting away.”
“She’s draining her Life Energy! This isn’t Ice Profundity… This is an innate ability!” Soon after, Yang Hong regained his senses, and his expression changed. “This Yang Xue’s really a Variant!” He had heard rumors about Yang Xue being a Variant in the past, but he could not confirm if it was the truth since he had never seen her using her innate ability.
He finally witnessed Yang Xue’s innate ability today.
Moreover, it was the type of innate ability that drained her Life Energy!
A fiery-red saber appeared in his hand out of thin air. As a saber ray rose from the saber, he tried his very best to break open the thick and hard ice around them.
He wanted to break the ice so he could chase after the two ladies.
The saber ray ran rampant on the saber in his hand. It seemed as though he had transformed into a saber as he slashed at the ice violently with strength that seemed like it was bestowed by God.
A crack suddenly appeared on the hard ice. The crack spread out before it gradually slowed down and stopped completely.
“How’s this possible?!” Yang Hong’s expression changed when he saw the ice that trapped them did not break even after he had used his full force to slash it with his saber.
“Father! They’re getting away! They’re getting away! Quick! Quick!” Yang Fei’s expression changed drastically when he saw the two silhouettes disappeared from Yang Peak.
“I would like to see how times you’ll be able to withstand the slash from my saber!” Yang Hong saw Yang Xue whose hair was almost completely white spitting out blood as she hovered outside the hard ice. His eyes gleamed coldly as he continued to slash with his saber.
He felt immensely humiliated that he was restrained by a Third  Level Martial Monarch Stage martial artist!
He must use fresh blood to wash this humiliation away.
‘Whoosh! Whoosh! Whoosh!’ Finally, a loud thud was heard after three slashes. Yang Hong finally broke the hard ice around them.
