Chapter 895: My Comprehension Is the Earth Concept as Well
Translator: EndlessFantasy Translation Editor: EndlessFantasy Translation
The moment he heard Huang Daniu’s words, Cha Bai spurted out a mouthful of blood again before he could even catch his breath.
It was not just Cha Bai who was enraged until he vomited blood (literally!), even the group of Five Element Sect disciples who was watching by the side was rendered speechless as well. Their attention immediately shifted towards Huang Daniu as they thought to themselves, ‘What a ruthless person this Huang Daniu is.’
With just one joke, he had caused Cha Bai, the Peak Master of Fire Peak, to be severely wounded by Qi Yu, the Peak Master of Wood Peak, again.
“Daniu this fellow…” Duan Ling Tian chuckled. He just could not help it.
Before this, why did he not notice this side of Huang Daniu?
‘I think I’ll have to be a cat in order to live through your ‘friendly’ jokes!’ Duan Ling Tian thought.
Yang Ling, Ke Zheng and Chen Wei who were standing beside Duan Ling Tian could not help but burst out laughing as well after being stunned for a moment.
“This Daniu is really ruthless! I’m afraid that this time, Cha Bai will really hate him to the core,” Chen Wei shook his head.
“I used to think that this fellow looks quite honest. I guess, I’ve misjudged him,” Ke Zhen let out a sigh.
“This is why there’s a saying that says, ‘Never judge a book by its cover’,” Yang Ling chimed in with an earnest look.
“Qi Yu, you… you must give me an explanation!” Cha Bai turned and glared at Qi Yu before roaring loudly.
It was indeed true that he had used his Voice Transmission to threaten Duan Ling Tian earlier. Although he was furious about the fact that he was severely wounded by Qi Yu because of Duan Ling Tian, he was still able to hold it in.
However, he did not even threaten Huang Daniu this time. All the same, he was once again severely injured by Qi Yu due to Huang Daniu’s accusation. Other than feeling enraged, he felt wrongly accused too.
“Explanation?” Qi Yu lifted his brows as he replied nonchalantly, “Cha Bai, you’re an elder. How can you be so petty? Didn’t Daniu tell you that he was just joking with you?”
“Barf!” The moment Cha Bai heard of Qi Yu’s words, he spurted another mouthful of blood. His face turned even more ghastly pale than before.
Who the hell would make such a joke?!
“Sect Leader, you must give me justice!” Cha Bai looked towards Guo Chong with a face full of fury.
“Cha Bai, let us let this matter go,” Guo Chong slowly said as he furrowed his brows before unfurrowing it again.
Before Cha Bai had a chance to say anything, Guo Chong instantly cut him off, “I said, this matter is over! If it wasn’t for the fact that you threatened Duan Ling Tian earlier and set a precedent, do you think Qi Yu will hurt you for no reason?” Guo Chong’s face darkened instantly when he finished his words.
Cha Bai took a deep breath and did not press the issue anymore. However, there was still a cold gleam in his eyes as he shot a death glare towards Qi Yu and Huang Daniu.
“Good job, Daniu!” Qi Yu gave a thumbs up to Huang Daniu. It seemed like he was praising him for defeating Hu Fei, but at the same time, it seemed like he was praising him for making that great joke.
“Hehe,” Huang Daniu grinned before he cast a provocative look at Cha Bai, making him turned even more glum than before.
“Daniu, you really have something up your sleeves!” When Huang Daniu returned, Duan Ling Tian was reminded of the earlier incident again and could not help but burst out laughing. At the same time, he could feel a warm feeling enveloping his heart.
He knew that Duan Ling Tian did that to avenge him.
At this moment, the temporary ranking of the Battle of the Five Peaks had finally come out after Tan Hua gave up on fighting Huang Daniu.
Due to the reason that Nangong Yi had defeated Huang Daniu, and along with the fact that Hu Fei, Tan Huan and that male disciple from Earth Peak had admitted defeat to Nangong Yi, he was temporarily ranked as the Battle of the Five Peaks’ victor.
Huang Daniu, on the hand, who had replaced Nangong Yi’s previous advancement ranking and defeated Hu Fei and another two contestants, was temporarily ranked second in the Battle of the Five Peaks.
Hu Fei was temporarily ranked third.
Tan Huan was temporarily ranked fourth.
The male disciple from Earth Peak was temporarily ranked fifth.
None of the five people had any objection to the current rankings.
It was finally the turn of the previous five people who were eliminated in the first round to issue their challenge. They were Duan Ling Tian, Nangong Chen, Tian Zhen, a female disciple of Water Peak and a male disciple from Fire Peak.
The female disciple from Water Peak issued a challenge to the male disciple of Earth Peak. She was defeated and temporarily ranked sixth.
The male disciple from Fire Peak challenged the male disciple of Earth Peak. He succeeded and was temporarily ranked fifth.
The male disciple from Earth Peak dropped to the sixth place.
The female disciple from Water Peak dropped to the seventh place.
All seven people had no objections to the current rankings.
When Duan Ling Tian was looking at Nangong Chen, and Tian Zhen was wondering if they wanted to go first, Nangong Chen suddenly made his move. In just a flash, he had already reached the side of Gold Peak.
His gaze immediately landed on Huang Daniu. Although he did not speak a single word, it was apparent that his target was Huang Daniu!
“Senior Brother Chen’s going to make his move now!”
“Senior Brother Chen purposely went to the side of Gold Peak. It’s obvious that he’s letting Huang Daniu rely on the Earth Energy again… Looks like he has a lot of confidence in his own strength.”
“Of course! I heard that Senior Brother Chen is even more powerful than Senior Brother Yi.”
“Actually, until now, I still have no idea who’s the eldest between Senior Brother Chen and Yi.”
“It’s said that even Senior Brother Chen and Yi have no idea who’s the eldest… However, both of them think of themselves as the elder brother and always treat the other one as the younger brother.”
Most of the Five Element Sect’s disciples shifted their attention towards Nangong Chen. On the other hand, some of the attention was on Huang Daniu.
“So, you’re Nangong Chen? You and your brother are pretty good… Just the fact that you’re challenging me here and allowing me to borrow the Earth Energy tells me that you’re very confident. You’re indeed a very admirable opponent,” Huang Daniu exclaimed solemnly as he stood in the air opposite Nangong Chen.
With a grim look, Nangong Chen merely nodded indifferently.
“Let us finish the battle in one blow, like how your brother and I did previously, shall we?” Huang Daniu asked.
Nangong Chen nodded his head again.
“How straightforward! No matter who wins today, I’m going to become your friend!” Huang Daniu laughed heartily. Then, he smashed out a punch with full force. Vast khaki-colored energy erupted and pounced at Nangong Chen like a cannonball.
185 silhouettes of ancient horned dragons appeared from thin air in the sky. They bared their claws as they charged towards Nangong Chen.
When Nangong Chen saw Huang Daniu making his moves, he also began to make his move.
He strode forward and he punched out his fist. A vast amount of Origin Energy swept across and emitted waves of intense and majestic aura.
100 silhouettes of ancient horned dragons appeared in the sky as if it was telling everybody his cultivation base was at the Seventh Level Void Interpretation.
Then, a wave of khaki-colored energy emerged out of nowhere and continued to merge with his Origin Energy. It seemingly resonated with the Gold Peak nearby.
When the Origin Energy had completely merged with the khaki-colored energy, another 135 ancient horned dragons’ silhouettes appeared again.
“He has also comprehended the Earth Concept!” Duan Ling Tian’s eyes narrowed instantly. Shock could be clearly seen on his face.
At this moment, Huang Daniu, who had just noticed that Nangong Chen had also comprehended the Earth Concept, could only let out a bitter smile. However, he was unable to retract his fist in time, and it finally crashed against Nangong Chen’s fist.
When 185 ancient horned dragons’ strength was pitted against 235 ancient horned dragons’ strength, needless to say, Huang Daniu was sent flying immediately with just one punch.
However, it was fortunate that Nangong Chen retracted his energy in time, and he only inflicted minor injuries on Huang Daniu.
“If I had known earlier that you’ve comprehended the Earth Concept too, I would’ve admitted defeat in the first place… Eight Level Intermediate Earth concept is equal to the strength of 90 ancient horned dragons, and the Earth Energy that you borrowed is like the strength of 45 ancient horned dragons. Adding those two together is extremely powerful!” Huang Daniu said with a bitter smile after he took a deep breath and gradually eased the injuries inside his body.
“Earth Concept… It turns out that Senior Brother Chen has also comprehended the Earth Concept!” Many of the Five Element Sect’s disciples finally returned to their senses and exclaimed in surprise.
‘Looks like not many disciples in the Five Element Sect knew that Nangong Chen comprehends the Earth Concept… Seems like this guy has been concealing this pretty well,’ Duan Ling Tian thought to himself after listening to the comments from the Five Element Sect’s disciples.
“Guys, look at Huang Daniu’s expression now! This is so funny! Perhaps, it has never crossed his mind, not even in his dreams, that Senior Brother Chen has also comprehended the Earth Concept!”
“Senior Brother Chen’s Earth Concept is much stronger than his. Without the help from the Earth Energy, he already possesses the strength of 90 ancient horned dragons. Once he has borrowed it, it amounts to the strength of 135 ancient horned dragons!”
“Senior Brother Chen’s strength is much greater than that of Senior Brother Yi!”
The Five Element Sect’s disciples were in a heated discussion. The gazes that were trained on Nangong Chen were filled with awe and respect.
Nangong Chen had defeated Huang Daniu and was temporarily ranked at the second place in the Battle of the Five Peaks.
The rest of the people that were behind Huang Daniu’s rank automatically dropped one place.
Huang Daniu was temporarily ranked at the third place.
Hu Fei was temporarily ranked at the fourth place.
Tan Huan was temporarily ranked at the fifth place.
The male disciple from Fire Peak was temporarily ranked at the sixth place.
The male disciple from Earth Peak was temporarily ranked at the seventh place.
The female disciple from Water Peak was temporarily ranked at the eighth place.
All eight people had no objections to the current rankings.
With Nangong Chen’s strength, he might be able to defeat Nangong Yi and obtain the first place temporarily. However, because he had already admitted his defeat when he faced Nangong Yi in the first match, he could no longer challenge Nangong Yi. For the time being, Nangong Chen had no luck in obtaining the first place.
Of course, nothing was absolute.
As long as someone defeated Nangong Yi and replaced him in the first place, Nangong Chen would have the opportunity to challenge that person to obtain the first place.
At this moment, only Duan Ling Tian and Tian Zhen had yet to make their moves.
Tian Zhen took a deep breath as he flew forward. His gaze swept across Nangong Yi, Nangong Chen, Huang Daniu and Hu Fei, before it locked on to Tan Huan, the direct disciple of the Peak Master of Water Peak.
As long as he defeated Tan Huan, the Earth Peak that he represented would be ranked at fourth place in the Battle of the Five Peaks’ individual battle.
This was also his target.
“Tan Huan!” Tian Zhen issued a challenged at Tan Huan.
Tan Huan did not find it surprising when Tian Zhen challenged her.
Actually, the moment Huang Daniu demonstrated his astonishing strength and even defeated Hu Fei with his Earth Energy, she already knew that the bottom two Peaks in the Battle of the Five Peaks this time would definitely be the Water Peak that she was in and the Earth Peak that Tian Zhen was in.
At this time, what she had to do was to defeat Tian Zhen so she could extricate Water Peak from the last position in the rankings.
Her intention was exactly the same as Tian Zhen.
After the two of them made their appearance, they did not even exchange words as the both of them tacitly started to battle it out at the same time. At one time, both of them were evenly matched and neither side got the better of the other.
Both of them were at the Sixth Level Void Interpretation. The Concepts that they had comprehended were more or less the same as well. The thing that was being tested now was their martial skills, battle experience and their understanding of each other.
“This Tian Zhen… will most likely be defeated,” Duan Ling Tian narrowed both of his eyes slightly as he looked at the young man and woman constantly clashed with each other. He could see that Tian Zhen was slowly falling into a disadvantageous position.
The facts were exactly like what Duan Ling Tian had thought. After another 15 minutes, Tan Huan finally won against Tian Zhen by a small margin.
