Chapter 893: Slandering Accusations?
Translator: EndlessFantasy Translation Editor: EndlessFantasy Translation
“However, what can you do if a martial artist who has comprehended the Earth Concept refuses to leave the ground? Those martial artists that are far away from the ground will just let him do whatever he wants then?” Qi Yu answered as he looked at Cha Bai nonchalantly.
“YOU! That’s unreasonable!” Cha Bai was so angry that his face had turned completely dark as his anger continued to rise.
“Unreasonable?” Qi Yu laughed out joyfully, “Cha Bai, since you said that I’m unreasonable, then why don’t the two of us just… you know… battle it out. If you win, I’ll tell Daniu to give up. However, if you lose, Hu Fei will have to give up. What do you think?” Qi Yu, the Peak Master of Wood Peak, challenged Cha Bai, the Peak Master of Fire Peak, directly.
Just as Qi Yu finished his sentence, like a tossed stone that raised a thousand ripples, the group of Five Element Sect’s disciples was shocked to the core.
“Peak Master Qi Yu wants to challenge Peak Master Cha Bai?”
“It’s said that Peak Master Qi Yu is the second strongest person after the Sect Leader in our Five Element Sect. Would Peak Master Cha Bai dare to accept his challenge?”
“Can’t you see that Peak Master Cha Bai has turned all green now? If he really dares to accept the challenge, I’ll give you ten pieces of middle-grade Origin Stones… If he doesn’t dare accept the challenge, you’ll give me ten pieces of middle-grade Origin Stones! What do you think?”
“Yeah, right! Only a fool would bet with you!”
Other than Fire Peak’s disciples who looked slightly glum, the rest of the disciples from the four Peaks were clamoring in a heated discussion. Particularly the disciples from Wood Peak who started to bet against each other openly.
Without a doubt, all of these words — not even a single word was missed out— managed to make their ways to Cha Bai’s ears. He was so furious that the blood in his body was boiling with wrath. He was itching to accept Qi Yu’s challenge directly and have 300 matches with him.
However, could he really do that?
He knew that he was no match for Qi Yu, and once he was beaten in front of so many watchful eyes, where should he put his dignity as the Peak Master of Fire Peak then?
Guo Chong, the Sect Leader of the Five Element, could no longer stand it so he finally opened his mouth to advise them,”Enough! Are you worried that there’s no chance for the two of you to fight against each other? Don’t forget that today’s the Battle of the Five Peak, and it’s not your stage today!”
“Hurmph! For the sake of Sect Leader, I’ll not get into a dispute with you now!” Cha Bai snorted. Without a doubt, Guo Chong’s words had given him an opportunity to extricate himself from this awkward position.
“Hehe, Cha Bai, the Sect Leader has also said that you and I have no need to worry about having no opportunity to battle it out if we want to. Now, I want to issue a challenge to you. Let’s have a match after this Battle of the Five Peaks ends! Do you dare to accept it?!” Qi Yu smiled nonchalantly, crushing Cha Bai’s opportunity to extricate himself completely without any mercy.
Do you dare?
“You… YOU…” When Cha Bao saw that Qi Yu left no mercy for him, he was so enraged that his face turned completely green. However, he still did not have the courage to accept the challenge.
Qi Yu was known as the second strongest person in the Five Element Sect, and this reputation was definitely not underserved.
Cha Bai, who was the Peak Master of Fire Peak in the Five Element Sect, clearly knew this.
This was also the reason why he did not dare to accept the challenge. After all, once he had accepted it, his outcome was already decided. He would undoubtedly be defeated.
“Qi Yu, please show due respect for my reputation,” Guo Chong frowned as he interfered again.
After looking deeply at Guo Chong, Qi Yu subsequently nodded and retreated.
At the same time, Qi Yu looked towards Cha Bai, the Peak Master of Fire Peak again as he said indifferently, “Cha Bai, all these years, the fact that I’ve never asked you about Wood Peak’s matter doesn’t mean that I’ve no knowledge about the things that you’ve done before…From today onwards, if you dare to do anything to Wood Peak and make me unhappy again, I, Qi Yu, will go to your Fire Peak and cripple both your legs!”
After Cha Bai heard Qi Yu’s words, he turned even paler. However, he did not dare to open his mouth to retort.
At this moment, he knew that the Qi Yu from more than two decades ago had once again, returned.
That proud and unruly Qi Yu, who dared to challenge martial artists who were at the peak of the Void with his cultivation base that had just barely entered the Ninth Level Void Interpretation, was finally back.
With just a few words, Qi Yu made Cha Bai lost his words.
All the other disciples from the Five Element Sect, including those that were from Fire Peak as well, burst into an uproar.
Although they had heard that Qi Yu was the second most powerful person in the Five Element Sect, they had never thought that Qi Yu’s deterrent force would be so powerful to this extent! Just a few words were more than enough to render the Peak Master of Fire Peak speechless.
The moment each and every disciple from Wood Peak saw this scene, their faces were filled with excitement and pride.
This was their Peak Master of Wood Peak!
“Hey, brother! Which Peak are you from?” A Wood Peak disciple looked at a disciple from another Peak standing not far away as he smiled and asked.
“I’m from the Earth Peak. And you?” The latter replied.
“I’m from Wood Peak! See? That’s our Peak Master from Wood Peak! He’s amazing, huh?” The Wood Peak disciple puffed up his chest and asked with a smile.
“Very!” The latter nodded his head hard. Then, with an ingratiating smile, he asked, “Urm… Brother? Can I ask you something?”
“What do I need to do to join Wood Peak from Earth Peak?”
Similar cases like above continued to happen to many Wood Peak disciples.
In the past, they could not lift their heads up before the other four Peaks. However, today, they could finally stick their chests out and proudly shout, “I’m a disciple of Wood Peak!”
At this moment, they took pride in being a Wood Peak disciple.
Yu Fang, the Peak Master of Water Peak, and Tian Gu, the Peak Master of Earth Peak, exchanged glances. Both could see the dread in each other’s eyes.
Their faces instantly turned glum and sullen.
“In a world where a strong man is respected, it’s indeed true that whoever has a bigger fist will be the boss,” Duan Ling Tian shook his head and smiled as he watched Cha Bai, the Peak Master of Fire Peak, flinching and choking with silent fury in front of Qi Yu, their Peak Master of Wood Peak.
At the same time, he was also amazed by Qi Yu’s strength.
“Looks like our Peak Master is in a good mood today. He actually taught Cha Bai such a lesson mercilessly,” Ke Zheng laughed.
“I think Peak Master had wanted to do that for a long time now. It’s just that he never really had the confidence to do it all this while. After all, all of our younger disciples in Wood Peak in the past were just too disappointing and let him down a lot. Now that our Wood Peak has Duan Ling Tian and Huang Daniu in it, the Peak Master finally has the confidence to do this now!” Yang Ling hit the point right on the head.
Each Peak from the Five Element Sect existed side by side. However, they were all in a competitive situation at the same time.
No matter how strong the strongest Peak Master was, there would come one day when he would pass away.
The grooming of the disciples from the younger generation was the foundation of every Peak. They were the pillars that held up the future of each Peak.
Under Guo Chong’s, the Sect Leader of the Five Elemental Sect, intervention, Qi Yu and Cha Bai eventually retreated back to their own positions.
Immediately afterward, Guo Chong looked towards Huang Daniu and Hu Fei before announcing loudly to them, “I’ll give you a span of 20 breaths. After this time, if the two of you still refuse to make any move, this match between the both of you will end in a tie.”
Just as Guo Chong finished his sentence, Huang Daniu smiled.
Hu Fei’s face, on the other hand, turned deathly pale.
Huang Daniu and him?
He was a martial artist who was at the Seventh Level Void Interpretation. He had even comprehended the Seventh Level Intermediate Fire Concept, and Huang Daniu was only at the Sixth Level Void Interpretation and had only comprehended the Sixth Level Intermediate Earth Concept.
However, the match between Huang Daniu and him had to end with a tie?
At this moment, Hu Fei could sense the mocking looks that were piercing him from all directions.
Without a doubt, all these looks were mocking him. A martial artist who was at the Seventh Level Void Interpretation dared not make a move to fight against a Sixth Level Void Interpretation martial artist.
He instantly became so furious that he almost lost it.
However, his reasoning kept dissuading him constantly. It told him that he should not be impulsive, and he could not afford to be impulsive.
Once he had made his move, it was still acceptable if he managed to win.
However, if he was defeated, he would no longer be able to lift his head up in Five Element Sect and Fire Peak as well.
He did not dare to risk it.
“Ten more breaths,” Guo Chong reminded nonchalantly. In just a blink of an eye, a span of ten breaths had gone past.
Ten more breaths left?
As if Duan Ling Tian was reminded by something, a light flashed across his eyes. He looked towards Huang Daniu as he chuckled and shouted, “Daniu, you’re amazing! Turns out that this Hu Fei does not dare to take the initiative to fight with you. Looks like you’re going to become a famous person in the Five Element Sect from now on.”
“Hehe…” After hearing Duan Ling Tian’s remark, Huang Danu chuckled proudly.
“Oh yeah, Daniu. Is your hand okay from slapping Hu Fei twice till he became pig-faced earlier? Somehow, I feel like the skin on Hu Fei’s face seems to be quite thick you know,” Duan Ling Tian asked with a smile playing on his mouth.
The moment these words were out of Duan Ling Tian’s mouth, the group of Five Element Sect’s disciples was stunned and bewildered.
They immediately looked at Hu Fei instinctively and found that his face was suddenly flushed with crimson red. His eyes were shining with a murderous gleam as he glared fixedly at Huang Daniu.
“Duan Ling Tian is really ruthless! Touching his sore spot like that, isn’t he trying to force Senior Brother Hu Fei to make a move?”
“I think Senior Brother Hu Fei has already been enraged to his limit… Just a little bit more and he might not be able to stop himself from slashing Huang Daniu.”
“As long as Huang Daniu answers Duan Ling Tian, with Senior Brother Hu Fei’s temper, I’m pretty sure he’ll charge forward soon!”
At this moment, the group of Five Element Sect’s disciples had managed to figure out Duan Ling Tian’s intention. It was obvious that he wanted to force Hu Fei to make a move on Huang Daniu.
“Duan Ling Tian, don’t think that having Qi Yu as your support allows you to do anything you like… Qi Yu won’t be able to stay by your side always! If you dare to say one more word, I’ll make sure you die with neither body nor skeleton left behind!” A ruthless and vicious voice suddenly entered Duan Ling Tian’s ears.
Duan Ling Tian raised an eyebrow as he looked towards the source of the voice. Its owner turned out to be Cha Bai, the Peak Master of Fire Peak.
Duan Ling Tian immediately smiled nonchalantly and said out loud, “Peak Master Cha Bai, did you just tell me that Peak Master Qi Yu won’t be able to stay by my side always and you can kill me anytime outside, with not even a single bone left?”
The moment these words left Duan Ling Tian’s mouth, Cha Bai instantly paled.
He had never thought that Duan Ling Tian would explicitly repeat the words that he used to threaten him using the Voice Transmission earlier.
At this moment, he could feel the looks that were being directed at him from the surroundings.
Even Guo Chong, the Sect Leader of the Five Element Sect, cast a glance at him. Hints of anger could be seen in his eyes.
No matter what, Duan Ling Tian was still a disciple from Wood Peak.
A disciple from Wood Peak was still a disciple of the Five Element Sect.
At this moment, Cha Bai, who was the Peak Master of Fire Peak, had dared to threaten his junior disciple from the same sect. Naturally, even him, the sect leader, could not suppress the rising furor from his heart.
“Duan Ling Tian! Don’t make such a slanderous accusation!” Cha Bai was furious.
Right now, how could he possibly admit to having uttered such words before?
If he had admitted to it, let alone the other four Peaks, even the disciples from Fire Peak would most likely despise him from their bottom of their hearts.
“Slanderous accusation?” Duan Ling Tian smiled, “Well, then, Peak Master Cha Bai, do you dare to swear by the Nine-Nine Heavenly Tribulation that you did not say such words earlier?”
