Chapter 666: Long Yun’s Strength
Translator: KurazyTolanzuraytor Editor: Jay
Along with the passage of time, the representatives and young geniuses of the 36 Empires that included the Darkstone Empire had arrived successively.
For a time, people flowed about in the second-class spectating area of the Cage Battle Arena, and it was filled with people.
There were even the representatives and young geniuses of three more Empires at the side of the spectating area that Duan Ling Tian and group of people from the Darkstone Empire sat.
“King Yong! We haven’t met for many years… Have you been well?” The representative of an Empire that had just brought his group over sat near King Yong and took the initiative to greet him.
This was an old man in grey clothes who looked old and shaky, his pair of muddy eyes were expressionless, and his entire body emitted an unfathomable aura.
“Senior Liu.” King Yong lightly smiled a she looked at the grey clothed old man. “I’ve been well. I truly never imagined that you’re leading the Holdwin Empire’s group this time.”
“Old people have to get out more often.” The old man surnamed Liu replied with a smile.
Subsequently, the old man’s gaze flashed past the ten young geniuses of the Darkstone Empire, and as he scanned every single one of them, there seemed to be a strand of bright light at the depths of his muddy gaze.
This was something that Duan Ling Tian saw clearly.
“King Yong, I heard that the number one young genius of your Darkstone Empire is called Mo Xuan… I wonder which one he is?” The old man asked curiously.
“Mo Xuan, this is Senior Liu, and he’s ranked in the top amongst the five great revered elders of the Holdwin Empire.” King Yong turned around to look at Mo Xuan in the third row when he heard this.
“Senior Liu.” Mo Xuan looked at the old man and lightly nodded in greeting.
“Not bad, he’s indeed a talented person.” The old man praised.
“Hmph! Number one young expert of the Darkstone Empire… As far as I’m concerned, all this has already become past tense now.” A cold grunt broke the peaceful atmosphere at the scene.
For a time, everyone that heard this including Duan Ling Tian shot their gazes towards the source of the voice.
At that place sat a young man with a cold expression.
“Long Yun!” With just a glance, Duan Ling Tian recognized this young man who was precisely Long Yun, who he’d long since known.
Long Yun was from the Azure Forest Imperial Kingdom like him.
He still remembered that when he met Long Yun for the first time all those years ago, it was during the Martial Competition of the five great sects of the Azure Forest Imperial Kingdom…
At that time, Long Yun was someone who was covered in the honor and glory given to him by a myriad of people.
During the Martial Competition of the five great sect all those years ago, amongst the five great young masters of the Azure Forest Imperial Kingdom, only Long Yun, the Saber Young Master, had participated.
At that time, practically everyone felt that Long Yun would obtain the honor of number one in the martial competition.
Unfortunately, the outcome exceeded the expectations of everyone.
Duan Ling Tian was like a black horse that defeated Long Yun and obtained the honor of number one and had greatly lowered Long Yun’s fame.
It could be said that at that time, Duan Ling Tian stepped on Long Yun to become famous in the Azure Forest Imperial Kingdom.
“Long Yun, one year ago, you didn’t have the courage to battle me… Could it be that you think you can defeat me now?” Mo Xuan’s face sank slightly, and his eyes were suffused with a glow as he shot out a fierce gaze that slowly descended onto Long Yun.
“You don’t have the qualifications to fight me now.” Long Yun looked at Mo Xuan and shook his head. “Presently, amongst the young geniuses of the Darkstone Empire, only Duan Ling Tian and Su Li have the qualifications to become my opponents… You are not good enough!” His words wantonly trampled upon Mo Xuan’s dignity.
“You’re courting death!” Mo Xuan abruptly stood up, his hair standing on end with rage, his eyes were suffused a crimson red color as he stared fixedly at Long Yun, and the voice that he emitted was cold to the extreme.
“I’ve said it before… You don’t have the qualifications.” Long Yun shook his head. From beginning until the end, he never took Mo Xuan seriously, and he did indeed did not take Mo Xuan seriously.
Perhaps he wasn’t a match for Mo Xuan a year ago.
But now, with the help of his formidable master, his cultivation had undergone a tremendous change when compared to a year before.
It was exactly as he’d said, amongst the group of young geniuses in the Darkstone Empire now, he only took Duan Ling Tian and Su Li seriously.
“Die!” Finally, Mo Xuan was unable to restrain himself, and he shouted out explosively as he pounced towards Long Yun as if he’d transformed into a wild beast that had opened its bloody mouth with an intention of swallowing Long Yun directly.
At the same time, along with the Origin Energy on Mo Xuan’s body skyrocketing, seven ancient horned dragon silhouettes gradually condensed into form above him…
When strands of violet colored energy that contained numerous bolts of lightning striking within it appeared within his Origin Energy, another five ancient horned dragon silhouettes appeared in the sky above Mo Xuan.
Fifth level of the Void Initiation Stage!
Fifth level Lightning Concept!
This was Mo Xuan’s current strength.
Mo Xuan struck out with his fist, his Origin Energy and Lightning Concept following his fist like a shadow and giving rise to a wave of roiling waves of airflow that blew on the clothes of Duan Ling Tian and the others to the point of fluttering in the air.
This punch that carried the might of lightning whistles out like a shooting star that swept past the horizon and fiercely smashed towards Long Yun.
“Ignorant fool!” When faced with Mo Xuan’s punch that approached menacingly, Long Yun still had disdain on his face.
Suddenly, Long Yun made a move.
With a raise of his hand, his palm formed a saber, and Origin Energy raged and bloomed atop his fist.
Right at this instant, besides Duan Ling Tian and Su Li who were still able to maintain their calm, everyone present stared with their eyes wide open, and they looked at the scene before them in disbelief.
What have I seen?
At this moment, there were shockingly 10 ancient horned dragon silhouettes that had appeared in the sky above Long Yun…
Merely using Origin Energy to draw upon the energy of heaven and earth to develop 10 ancient horned dragon silhouettes?
“Seventh level of the Void Initiation Stage!” King Yong couldn’t help but exclaim in shock.
Never had he imagined that amongst the group of young geniuses he brought over, Long Yun, who was originally only able to be ranked as above average would actually undergo such a tremendous change in his cultivation after a year.
The expressions of everyone else was covered in shock as well.
The first shock had barely subsided when a second rose!
With a raise of his hand, the saber formed from his palm whistled out to intercept Mo Xuan’s fist strike that approached menacingly.
The saber formed from his palm was only halfway to its target when it exploded out with a sharp and overbearing aura.
In the sky, another seven ancient horned dragon silhouettes condensed into form…
“Seventh level Saber Concept!” King Yong’s brows raised, and his eyes were filled with disbelief.
What exactly did this Long Yun encounter in the past year?
Now, King Yong was practically able to be sure that during the past year, Long Yun had surely obtained a fortuitous encounter, and it was even a shocking fortuitous encounter that was rare to come by!
What a joke!
If it wasn’t for a shocking fortuitous encounter, would a person that was mediocre a year ago be able to reveal a strength that shocked everyone?
Long Yun’s attack descended down while carrying the strength of 17 ancient horned dragons.
When compared with Mo Xuan’s strength of 12 ancient horned dragons, it was stronger by five ancient horned dragons…
The strength of these two people was utterly not on the same level.
When he saw the 17 ancient horned dragon silhouettes in the sky above Long Yun, Mo Xuan’s expression had already gone pale.
Now, even if his heart was filled with deep regret, he was irrevocably committed.
As the saying goes, spilled water can’t be gathered!
At this moment, he even didn’t have the time to withdraw his spirit weapon and could only collide head on with Long Yun’s attack.
He was practically able to guess the outcome.
“Enough!” Right when Mo Xuan was in despair, King Yong shouted out with a low voice.
In the next moment, King Yong made a move, easily dissolving the attacks of the two of them and shocking them back to their respective seats.
Long Yun lightly sat down.
Unlike him, Mo Xuan fiercely sat back on his seat, and his forehead broke out in cold sweat.
At that instant earlier, he felt death was so close, and it was the first time in his life that he felt the threat of death.
“Futile effort!” Right at this moment, Long Yun’s disdainful voice entered into Mo Xuan’s ears, causing Mo Xuan to seem as if he was struck by lightning, and his face instantly flushed red.
But he just happened to have no way of retort.
After all, he was indeed inferior to Long Yun!
For a time, he felt ashamed and resentful.
Although he didn’t look at the gazes that the surrounding people shot onto him, he was able to guess that there was surely numerous gazes of ridicule…
“King Yong!” Finally, Mo Xuan lowered his head and took a deep breath before saying to King Yong, “I withdraw from the Dynasty Martial Competition this time!”
Although Mo Xuan’s speech was short, it was resolute and decisive.
“This Mo Xuan wouldn’t be unable to tolerate such a small blow, right?” Duan Ling Tian was stunned.
Meanwhile, Mo Xuan’s figure flashed to transform into a swift flowing light that left the second-class spectating area before charging into the sky and vanishing in the horizon.
As soon as Mo Xuan left, the people present returned to their senses, and they shook their heads.
No one had expected that Mo Xuan would be unable to accept defeat to this extent.
“King Yong, looks like the number one expert of your Darkstone Empire isn’t really the strongest young genius of your Darkstone Empire…” The old man surnamed Liu looked at King Yong and sighed.
Mo Xuan’s departure caused King Yong to be stunned, and he recovered from his shock at this moment when he heard the old man. “Even I never imagined that Long Yun would be able to possess such a cultivation in a short period of a single year!”
Long Yun’s change was something that King Yong has never expected.
“Earlier, he said that amongst the young geniuses of your Darkstone Empire, only Duan Ling Tian and Su Li have the qualifications to be his opponent?” The old man said with surprise, “King Yong, your Darkstone Empire has really concealed your strength deeply… Looks like besides this person, there are another two more young geniuses in your Darkstone Empire that are stronger than the so-called number young expert, Mo Xuan, of your Darkstone Empire.”
“I wonder who those two are?” As the old man finished speaking, his tone was filled with interest.
The group of Holdwin Empire young geniuses behind the old man recovered from the shock they experienced from the scene before as well, and they sized up the remaining eight young geniuses of the Darkstone Empire with interest.
Obviously, they were extremely curious as to who that Duan Ling Tian and Su Li were.
In next to no time, they followed the gazes of the other six young geniuses of the Darkstone Empire to obtain the answer they wanted.
“So young?!” When their gazes descended onto the violet clothed young man and red clothed young man that sat together, they were flabbergasted.
Aren’t they a little too young?
Amongst the two people before them, the red clothed young man ought to be almost 30, whereas, the violet clothed young man was only around 25, no matter how they looked at him.
