“Since you, Li Xuan, have this kind of heart, I will fulfill your request. However, if you get beaten this time, please do not say that I as the grandfather am bullying you. With your haughty personality, you must undergo training, and such training will greatly benefit you in your future cultivation.” Yatuo’s outer appearance expressed great dignity, but in his heart, there was no actual change.
In his previous instant of panic, Yatuo realized that if Li Xuan truly became the elder of Allan Auction House, then nothing would need to be said about his wife’s status! Furthermore, Li Xuan’s innate talent was pretty good, and if a time came that it could be controlled, Yatuo could simply find a slave to establish a servant’s contract, turning Li Xuan into a devoted slave….
In a flash, a myriad of schemes blossomed in his mind, and his original intention to let Siyu protect her chastity had been abandoned. He was now prepared to let Siyu give her body to Li Xuan in the case that a child could be had….
“Hehe, in that case, all the elites of the Manton Clan, please come up! Let this Young Master see exactly what kind of skills you all possess!” Li Xuan activated a Wind Soaring spell and immediately flew onto the prepared fighting stage without any other words.
“Li Xuan, don’t think too highly of yourself!”
“Li Xuan, while others may fear you, why would I, Mozhe, fear you!”
“Li Xuan, receive this Leaf Slaughter technique from me, Ada!”
At this moment, a group of people charged over while shouting.
In a flash, magics like Withered Ghost Vine, Leaf Slaughter, Binding, and Bramble Engulfment all surged forward.
“Hehe, come at me!”
After Li Xuan chuckled, his figure flashed as two tangible wings of wind elemental energy sprouted out from his back. Flapping like an angel, he soared into the sky and evaded the magics’ target range.
At the same time, his figure halted for an instant, fire elemental energy immediately flickering and roiling about as he extended his four limbs and got into a simple *Tribody Stance to directly begin utilizing Xing Yi battle magic skills!
(*TL: Tribody Form will be changed to Tribody Stance)
“Xing Yi Chicken Form, Phoenix Nirvana, Ninth Fiery Berserk Firmament!”
(TL: omg is he really shouting this? omg the cringe factor. CHICKEN.)
Li Xuan lightly shouted and his body immediately began to blaze with a massive amount of flames. After that, an aura of a Flame Beast that seemed to swallow the entire world extended outwards, causing everybody present to feel intolerable pressure and fear.
It seemed to be a noiseless yet berserk whistle, yet also to be the heartrending wailing of one’s soul. Once the phantom of the fiery phoenix abruptly appeared in the air, one could say that heaven and earth paled in comparison.
The element was fire system elemental energy. The extent to which it was condensed was simply the early stage of 3rd Fen 1st layer, or rather, the level was not yet at the stage of being able to condense.
However, when this fiery phoenix phantom unfolded its body and sped towards the members of the Manton Clan, these people were still in the middle of casting! Not only were their spells instantly interrupted, some people could not even flee in time!
The phantom of the fiery phoenix instantly assaulted the people on the fighting stage and the people in turn let out numerous miserable shrieks. After that, their bodies directly rang out with an enormous explosion, followed by an innumerable amount of splattering blood and a heavy stench of scorched human flesh. It was a scene of carnage.
The originally intact fighting stage had collapsed by more than half, and at least ten odd spectators in the outer area who couldn’t dodge in time were also buried. For those who did not go on stage yet were still wounded, there were more than twenty-some people.
As for the elite core disciples of the Manton Clan who jumped on stage under Li Xuan’s instigation, there were a total of nine. Out of the nine people, those with the lightest injuries had already been crippled, while those who were injured most were only left with a single breath.
Retracting his fist and standing straight up, Li Xuan let out a slight expression of amazement at the shocking scene. However, his face soon brimmed with pride and glee.
“Even a pile of trash like this dares to compete with this Young Master? Although this Young Master is only 3rd Fen 1st layer, I’m still more than capable of instantly killing 3rd Fen 3rd or 4th layer trash! If even you pieces of trash are unable to defeat me, wouldn’t the time this Young Master spent focusing bitterly on cultivation be wasted!”
His domineering words nearly caused Yatuo’s eyeballs to pop out of their sockets.
It wasn’t that the Manton Clan did not have anybody, but rather that the important figures were all cultivating at the moment. As for other clans, would it not be the same way? He, Yatuo, a 5th Xing 2nd layer envoy, was also the clan leader and sufficient to deal with everything at hand.
However, now, he discovered that he was no longer able to deal with it.
Yet as an expert, he did have a calming art. Faintly suppressing the raging fury within him and the urge to rush towards the stage and tear Li Xuan apart, he squeezed out an extremely ugly smile: “As expected, Li Xuan’s talent is exceedingly great! Your strength surpasses the rest and your might is unmatched! You are indeed worthy of my granddaughter, Siyu, and the fact that Siyu is able to find a husband like you is her fortune!”
“I’m worthy of Siyu, but is Siyu worthy of—”
“Xuan Er, don’t talk nonsense.” When Siqin Duanyue heard the first string of Li Xuan’s words, she knew that he would begin speaking in a blithe manner, so she immediately kept Li Xuan from saying that Siyu was not worthy of him.
“Hehe, since Mother has said so, I won’t say anything more.” Li Xuan said loftily.
“En, it’s true Siyu falls somewhat short of you, but she also possesses talent and manifests it quite well. Furthermore, for this match, you had it easy because your battle magic skill was at least a 5-star grade skill. I don’t know from whom it was passed on from?”
“From whence this inheritance came from? For now, you don’t have the qualifications to know.” Li Xuan spoke without the slightest bit of courtesy.
“You….” Yatuo nearly fainted from anger. Waving his hand, he signalled to people to bring down the heavily injured core elite disciples from the stage. Only after doing so did he let out a soft sigh of relief, “As of now, you’ve passed the first event. The second will be the kowtowing ceremony of both parties to each others’ respective elder generation…. The third will be safely escorting Siyu to your Li Clan residence. If you run into any difficulties or trials en route, the members of our clan are not permitted to help you…. These difficulties or trials are naturally created by our experts through our arrangements. However, this also increases one’s benefits because it is a one time comparison between our clans’ strengths…. After arriving at the Li Clan residence safely, we will mutually congratulate each other and conclude with the banquet. By then, the engagement will have been considered completed.”
“How very troublesome.”
At this moment, Siyu was also wearing a 4-star lower grade magic robe that was light green in color, making her appear beautiful in a cute and helpless-looking way.
On the other hand, Li Xuan was standing beside Siyu and attired in that fire system 4-star lower grade magic robe.
Currently, the crowd of people within the main hall were all watching from the side, observing the ceremony.
Balan, Ai Wei’er, and others like them were all standing in the VIP section.
“Alright, this concludes the ceremony. The final kowtowing will now begin….”
A manager announced in a loud voice. At this time, replacing the two parties’ familial places were unexpectedly the Youming Elders on Li Xuan’s side, making Li Ning feel immensely embarrassed and causing fury to surge in Li Xuan’s heart.
Although the reasoning that strength was the most important in this world was not incorrect, such behavior was indeed too excessive. Hence, at this moment, Li Xuan stealthily entered a state of unification and immediately began gathering spatial elemental energy, forming it into a ‘needle’ that was very similar in appearance to a highly condensed fire needle.
And this needle violently shot towards Balan in a flash!
Following the sharp noise of space tearing, a fist-sized black hole appeared at the center of Balan’s eyebrows. Bright red blood and white brain matter began to spray out like a fountain as Balan’s body began to topple to the ground, a trace of envy immersed within an expression of shock and fear not even able to fade away in time.
This sudden unforeseen explosion caused everybody to directly sink into a daze!
At this moment, Li Xuan’s soul dragged out Balan’s soul and violently crushed it to pieces, gobbling it up in a frenzy. He then directly absorbed the souls of the seven people he had killed at Reid’s home and then assaulted the two Youming Elders in a sudden, fierce burst!
Soul force combined with spirit system magic forcefully charged into the opposing parties’ areas between the eyebrows and instantly blew up the meditative area within!
