Liky: Trying to finish up HW here………
“She Qiong, you went way too far!” When Duan Xin Ye heard She Qiong, she was furious. He surprisingly wanted to punch Lin Feng. Lin Feng had come to see her and She Qiong was causing trouble, besides, he was getting more and more aggressive.
“Xin Ye, I’m doing everything for you, Lin Feng shouldn’t be with you. He cannot give you anything and on top of that, too many people hate him.” Said She Qiong. Lin Feng had even killed Duan Tian Lang’s son, Duan Han. She Qiong obviously knew about those events.
Lin Feng belonged to the unwashed masses, he initially had no social status, but then Duan Wu Ya had conferred him the title of Marquis, which wasn’t a very high title compared to them. Besides, he only gave him the title because he could use Lin Feng, maybe someday he wouldn’t need him anymore and Lin Feng would be worthless.
He had no background and had many enemies, Lin Feng was unable to protect himself from them, how could he even protect Duan Xin Ye?
“That’s none of your business!” Said Duan Xin Ye in an ice-cold tone. She immediately turned to Lin Feng and said: “Lin Feng, let’s go.”
“You need a girl to protect you!” joked She Qiong calmly.
Lin Feng didn’t move, he was just looking at She Qiong. He looked calm and serene, he needed a girl to protect him?
“Lin Feng, ignore him.” Said Duan Xin Ye when she saw that Lin Feng wasn’t moving, she looked anxious. She knew how strong She Qiong was. He was the youngest of the nine imperial guard officers. In the entire Imperial City, he was one of the most talented cultivators. Lin Feng had great natural abilities but he was still weaker than She Qiong.
Apart from strength and natural abilities, She Qiong also had a background. Even if Lin Feng injured him while defending himself, the consequences would be dire.
She Qiong’s background was terrifying. Even Duan Wu Ya had to respect to him. Therefore, because of this, Duan Xin Ye wished that Lin Feng and She Qiong hadn’t met, because no matter what, Lin Feng would lose.
However, could Lin Feng ignore it?
She Qiong humiliated him and said that he needed a girl to protect him. In fact, it was true, if Lin Feng couldn’t protect himself, what would he be able to give Duan Xin Ye apart from worries and pain.
Lin Feng was calmly standing there and looking at She Qiong, he then said: “Come and punch me, if you dare!”
“Huh?” She Qiong was stupefied, Lin Feng accepted. Immediately after, he smiled coldly, Lin Feng really had guts, he was begging for death.
When the crowd heard Lin Feng, they all laughed. They all thought that Lin Feng was foolish.
All the nine officers of the imperial guards were extremely strong. The lowest level required to be an officer of the imperial guard was the third Xuan Qi layer. She Qiong was the youngest imperial guard officer who had broken through to the third Xuan Qi layer. Unfortunately, Lin Feng would not be able to resist.
“Very good, you’re a real man, unfortunately…” She Qiong laughed in an ice-cold way. Lin Feng had accepted. No matter if it was out of courage or foolishness, his punch was aimed to be deadly, She Qiong was going to be merciless with his attack.
Duan Xin Ye looked sad when she heard Lin Feng accept the battle. She didn’t say anything, she knew how Lin Feng was, she wouldn’t be able to change his mind, he was definitely going to fight.
Duan Xin Ye coldly glared at She Qiong. She Qiong also glanced at her and said: “Xin Ye, don’t worry, I will not kill him.”
She Qiong really didn’t intend to kill Lin Feng but after that punch, Lin Feng would definitely have trouble ever standing back up, he would be crippled.
“Xin Ye, don’t worry.” Said Lin Feng indifferently while smiling at Duan Xin Ye. Duan Xin Ye slightly nodded and didn’t say anything else. Even though She Qiong was extremely strong, Lin Feng was not weak either. Even if She Qiong wanted to kill Lin Feng with just a punch, Duan Xin Ye didn’t think it was possible. She had seen Lin Feng’s strength in the Lovesick Forest.
“Alright, get ready to be punched!” Said She Qiong when he saw that Duan Xin Ye and Lin Feng were looking at each other, he couldn’t stand it and released some ice-cold Qi.
An extremely powerful Qi emerged from She Qiong’s body. Pure Qi started fluctuating and a flood dragon illusion appeared around his body, it was incredible.
“Third Xuan Qi layer!” Lin Feng was a bit surprised when he sensed She Qiong’s Qi. She Qiong was about twenty years old and already had the strength of the third Xuan Qi layer, he really had amazing natural abilities.
Of course, Lin Feng also knew that the continent was vast, there were a myriad of geniuses. Lin Feng had high natural abilities but he never said that he was the strongest and no one could beat him. He knew that there were many people who were much stronger than him. Besides, there were also many people who could practice cultivation with much better conditions than him, those who were noble and wealthy, they had legendary potions, pills and other resources, they have had it all since birth.
All Lin Feng could do was rely on his own determination and his power of comprehension to practice cultivation. With great pain and effort he would constantly improve himself, without ever giving up or stopping.
The pure Qi on She Qiong’s body kept undulating and finally condensed around his fist which made his fist look like a flood dragon. The illusion even emitted a roar while absorbing the powerful Qi.
“She Qiong’s power is terrifying.” Thought the crowd when they saw the pure Qi flood dragon on She Qiong’s fist. He looked majestic. If that fist touched Lin Feng, would the dragon swallow him whole?
She Qiong was not going to show the least bit of mercy towards Lin Feng.
“If you want to act like a man, you will have to pay the price.” Said She Qiong with his fist ready to bombard the atmosphere. He was coldly glaring at Lin Feng. Lin Feng would never be able to defend against his punch.
He wanted to prove to Duan Xin Ye that Lin Feng was not a good match for her, only him, She Qiong, could protect her and be her match.
Lin Feng remained silent. Scorching hot flames emerged from his body, it was a deadly fire which invaded the entire atmosphere, making many people back away from Lin Feng.
Pure Qi fire condensed on his fist and Lin Feng’s fist transformed into a blazing sun.
“You have broken through to the first Xuan Qi layer, not bad, unfortunately, you will not be able to withstand my power.” Said She Qiong with confidence burning in his eyes. A cultivator of the first Xuan Qi layer couldn’t fight back against the strength of a cultivator of the third Xuan Qi layer. His fist was going to be merciless, its sole purpose was to crush Lin Feng.
Lin Feng ignored She Qiong, in his heart, there was no self, nobody, no emotions, only darkness. Besides, in Lin Feng’s world of darkness, there was his grim fire.
The pure Qi on his body kept undulating and rushing towards Lin Feng’s fist, the pressure increased, the energy slowly transformed into a pitch-black fire. That deadly black fire was terrifying, it looked abyssal. It was absorbing insane amounts of pure Qi from the flames, it was constantly absorbing the strength of the sun, however, its size didn’t change at all.
“Huh? What kind of fire is that?” The crowd was startled when they saw Lin Feng’s black fire. Besides, the strange fire seemed to be controlled by Lin Feng. The crowd couldn’t feel the deadly Qi from the fire. It wasn’t as intense as the scorching heat from normal flames, that black fire was extremely calm and tranquil.
She Qiong frowned but immediately relaxed, Lin Feng had just broken through to the first Xuan Qi layer, that’s all, even if he knew some special skills, it would be of no use against him.
“Fool, even if you studied a few skills, you can’t do anything, I am much stronger than you, all that you do will be in vain, basically, you stand no chance of withstanding my punch.” Said She Qiong indifferently. He wanted to see hatred in Lin Feng’s eyes, Lin Feng was too calm which made him feel upset.
However, She Qiong saw nothing at all in the eyes of Lin Feng, he just looked as calm and serene as before. His pure Qi continued moving towards his fist.
Flames, darkness, deathly silence, the flame greatly resembled Lin Feng right now, emotionless.
She Qiong saw that Lin Feng was ignoring him which made him grow angrier and angrier. Finally, he started walking forwards and his flood dragon roared furiously, as if it was a real dragon.
“Roooaaaarrrr!” She Qiong’s fist bombarded the atmosphere towards Lin Feng. A white flood dragon was rushing towards Lin Feng.
At the same time, Lin Feng also moved. His calm and ordinary fist whistled towards She Qiong. Then, the black fire moved into the atmosphere and the black fire turned into a lotus flower, the atmosphere was then invaded by the terrifying power of the grim fire. This time, She Qiong’s heart skipped a beat, he was surprised.
How was that possible? How could that lotus flower have such a terrifying energy?
She Qiong’s heart was brutally pounding in his chest. Everybody was looking at She Qiong and Lin Feng’s fists as they collided. In an instant, the flood dragon was annihilated, it was consumed by the black lotus, it was incredible and thrilling!
