Chapter 74 – Luo Long
Translator: Seventh Peril Editor: Anuvrat
“Who is Ye Zhong? Get your ass over here!!”
An earth-shattering sound suddenly echoed out in the air. At this moment, countless disciples of the Xingxiang Sect had awoken from their state of cultivation. They were stunned for a moment before instantly reacting. Quite a several people swiftly arrived at the top of their courtyard, their gazes landed on the entrance of the courtyard from that day. A strange expression appeared in each of their eyes.
They had anticipated a retaliation but didn’t expect it to be this early.
Ye Zhong, who was cultivating the Empyrean Xingxiang Finger, suddenly frowned. His hand seals changed slightly, and he stood up. He walked to the balcony and looked towards the entrance of the courtyard.
At that moment, outside the courtyard where Ye Zhong was cultivating, there was a young man with long silver hair looking in his direction with a stern look on his face. When he saw Ye Zhong’s figure, his eyes narrowed, and a cold voice rang out.
“Are you that bast*rd, Ye Zhong? Very good, take advantage of my absence and attack my fellow brothers. You’re very good!”
Ye Zhong’s attention fell on that person. After a moment, he narrowed his eyes and asked in an indifferent voice, “Who is this nobody?”
Hearing Ye Zhong’s words, the silver-haired man’s expression sank, his eyes turned cold, “What a reckless bast*rd. You’re still trying to play dumb at a time like this, aren’t you?”
“You can’t be that trash Lu Fan’s so-called backer, right?” Ye Zhong stared at the man, his eyes cold, “It looks like you come here to exchange your Spirit Value for those tokens? If that is the case, I shall welcome you.”
“Ye Zhong, you think too highly of yourself. Don’t think that just because you’ve made a small achievement in the Innate Temple, you can run rampant in the Xingxiang Sect! You’re still too inexperienced! If you obediently hand over all your Spirit Value today, and I will no longer delve into it. Otherwise, I’m afraid that you will have to return all the humiliation that you gave to my fellow brothers the other day.” The silver-haired man laughed coldly as he spoke.
“Is that so?” Ye Zhong’s eyes turned slightly cold, “But I’m afraid you can’t do that!”
“What!?” The silver-haired man was slightly stunned. A moment later, he laughed loudly, “Brat, looks like you are quite confident! Did you all hear that? Did this fellow who was ranked 108th among the Inner Disciples really think he was strong? You don’t even know who I am, do you?”
“Brat, remember the name of the man who will kill you today, I am Luo Long!”
“Luo Long!?” Ye Zhong frowned slightly and shrugged his shoulders. He really had no idea who this fellow who seemed to have a great background was.
“Ye Zhong, this fellow is probably the Outer Disciple Rank 4, Luo Long!” Wang Mo was also awoken from his cultivation, and as he came to Ye Zhong’s pavilion, he spoke with an unsightly expression, “Moreover, it is said that every one of the Top Five Outer Disciples possesses the strength comparable to the Inner Disciples. However, it is said that there are many benefits to being ranked in the Top Five, so these people have never competed for the position of Inner Disciples.”
“The Outer Disciple ranked 4th, Luo Long.”
Ye Zhong nodded in acknowledgment, and narrowed his eyes as he spoke with a smile that was not a smile, “Isn’t he just a piece of trash that isn’t even an Inner Disciple? If he really had the ability, then he would have become an Inner Disciple long ago. He insists on retaining the so-called Outer Disciple Rank 4, and yet he still thinks he is invincible. In my opinion, he is too childish to the point that I might even pity him.”
Luo Long heard Ye Zhong’s words and his face turned cold instantly. He glared at Ye Zhong with eyes filled with resentment and said slowly, “Alright! Brat, you’re not bad! Originally, I was prepared to let you off, but since you’re courting death, don’t blame me for it! If you have the guts, don’t act like a cowardly turtle hiding in its shell and come out of your courtyard now!”
“Talking nonsense for so long, isn’t it just because you don’t dare to break the rules of the Xingxiang Sect? It seems like even if you have some achievements in the future, you will only have a limited future!” Ye Zhong shook his head, ridicule apparent in his eyes, “Originally, I was prepared to go find trouble with you in a few days, but since you’ve delivered yourself to my doorstep today, let me ask you one more thing. Have you prepared enough Spirit Value points!?”
Without a doubt, Ye Zhong’s words had touched Lua Long’s sore spot, causing his pupils to constrict as he shouted with a ferocious expression, “Brat! You’re courting death!”
“Are you sure you can do that?” Ye Zhong gave a faint smile, and moved forward one step, landing directly on the ground. He then walked out of the cultivation courtyard slowly and looked at Luo Long with his indifferent gaze, “Make your move, if you want to get back at me, you’ll have to put in a lot of effort. Otherwise, it won’t be that easy to get your face back.”
Luo Long’s gaze turned as sharp as a knife as he stared at Ye Zhong, who was walking forward with a calm face and was not as timid as he thought. His expression was extremely gloomy! He had forcefully come here today to seek revenge but didn’t expect this.
What he expected was the pitiful face of Ye Zhong, kneeling and begging for mercy, completely regretting what he had done, for daring to offend him, Luo Long!
“Is that one of the Top Ten Outer Disciples, ranked 4th, Luo Long?”
“He doesn’t look that powerful, does he?”
“I heard that the Top Ten Outer Disciples, especially the Top Five, can receive a large amount of Spirit Value points every year. It is even more than what the Inner Disciples can receive. Because of this, their strength is not ordinary at all!”
“The reason why Lu Fan had the guts to act so arrogantly in the Xingxiang Sect, but no one dares to get back at him. Most probably, it’s because of this Luo Long, right?”
“However, this Ye Zhong is not ordinary either. Have you heard about his feat in the past few days? When the Inner Disciples, Song Shaochen and Rong Tian, and the others came back, they were extremely afraid of him. And it’s said that they suffered a lot of losses in the Innate Temple.”
“However, this place is, after all, the Xingxiang Sect, not the Innate Temple. Furthermore, this territory is the home turf of Lua Long—”
Amidst the chaotic discussion, Luo Long said with a gloomy face: “Brat, since you’re seeking death, then I won’t show mercy. As an Inner Disciple, you truly think yourself as infallible, naive—”
As his voice faded, Luo Long slowly stepped forward. Traces of white steam rose from the surface of his body. At this moment, the meridians within his body faintly appeared, as if they were gently wiggling, appearing extremely strange.
At the same time, an extremely terrifying aura spread out from his body, causing the expressions of many onlookers to turn somewhat pale!
The strength of this Luo Long was probably a lot stronger than that of Lu Fan. He should be at the Fifth Layer of Body Tempering. And he was only half a step away from the Sixth Layer of Body Tempering!
With such strength, even the Inner Disciples like Su Yu and Song Shaochen might not be able to compare to him. No wonder he was so confident!
At that moment, the eyes of many could not help but fall on Ye Zhong. Even at that very moment, Ye Zhong’s expression was as calm as ever, not the slightest bit affected by Lua Long’s display of power.
Perhaps Su Yu was the only one who knew that Ye Zhong was not calm, but rather, he didn’t put such a level of strength in his eyes.
“Brat, even if you kneel and beg for forgiveness now, it’s already too late!”
Luo Long’s eyes were cold, his indifferent voice rang out, and then his figure suddenly shot out. His hands instantly turned into fists, carrying an extremely terrifying fluctuation, his fists blasted towards Ye Zhong as fast as lightning.
When Ye Zhong saw the incoming attack, his eyes narrowed slightly. In the next instant, his right hand curled up and his index finger quickly pointed out. The wind shot out from his finger was just like a sword beam, swift and fierce to the extreme.
The two extremely terrifying attacks instantly collided violently against each other. A low and deep sound of a collision instantly echoed out, and the two figures retreated almost simultaneously.
When Luo Long saw this scene, his eyes narrowed.
A blurry figure quickly rushed out and instantly appeared beside Luo Long. Then, the Four-Layered Shura Sword Seal condensed rapidly, overflowing with extremely shocking fluctuations of Spiritual Power as they enveloped towards Luo Long.
When Ye Zhong was displaying the Shura Sword Seal with the strength of the Fifth Layer of Body Tempering, even though it was only Four-Layered, the fluctuations still caused Luo Long’s face to become instantly grave.
It was obvious that he could tell Ye Zhong’s true strength in an instant. He must have just entered the Fifth Layer of Body Tempering, and the Spiritual Secret Art of Attack he cultivated must be pretty powerful!
“Silver Spear Piercing Finger!”
Luo Long did not back off, and in the next moment, two fingers of his right hand came together, and a beam of light enveloped his fingertips. With a flick of his fingers, silver light tore through the air and heavily collided with Ye Zhong’s Shura Sword Seal!
The two extremely fierce attacks collided. In an instant, visible ripples instantly swept forth, causing the ground to crack slightly at the point of the collision.
“Scram for me!”
Luo Long was not satisfied with the stalemate. His eyes darkened, and the burst of Qi and Blood erupted from his body. Instantly, an unreal image of a spear on his fingertips condensed, and a silver light flashed, and the Shura Sword Seal on Ye Zhong’s palm was finally torn apart.
However, the moment the Shura Sword Seal was broken, Ye Zhong’s body moved slightly as he plunged right into Luo Long’s side. His fist whistled through the air at an incredible speed, aiming at Luo Long’s vitals mercilessly.
“*Bang— Bang— Bang—*”
Faced with Ye Zhong’s sudden and ferocious attack, Luo Long sneered and pointed with his right finger, his finger attack blocking Ye Zhong’s attack entirely.
