Peerless Martial God - Chapter 157
Energy attacks were an extremely powerful tool for cultivators.
Not only did it enable a cultivator to absorb all the energy around them, it also enabled them to control it and use it as their own.
The energy attack was incredibly faint and did not look dangerous at all, but in fact, it was terrifyingly powerful.
Mu Fan's force was absorbed by Lin Feng's energy attack. All the energy in the atmosphere was combining and adding to Lin Feng's power. How could he compete with him?
At that moment, Mu Fan understood that Lin Feng could use an energy attack, which is why he hadn't been affected by his attacks. A cultivator of the fifth Ling Qi layer who could carry out energy attacks was beyond strong... How frightening!
Mu Fan had only thought about retreating and escaping once he saw the energy attack!
A cloud of dust appeared around Mu Fan and he started retreating backwards at full speed.
’’Too late.’’ said Lin Feng in a terrifyingly cold tone. Lin Feng moved like a shadow and his hand was rushing towards Mu Fan's body.
A gigantic cloud of dust appeared all around the cage. Lin Feng's energy attack had struck Mu Fan's body in the blink of an eye, tearing apart Mu Fan's body and leading to his immediate death.
’’Huh?’’ The crowd was wondering what was happening inside of the cage. They couldn't see anything through the cloud of dust that was surrounding the cage.
The students of the Holy Courtyard of Xue Yue were nervously looking at the cloud of dust and trying to see what was happening inside.
’’Hmph, that guy, Duo Ming, dared be that aggressive and arrogant. He must already be dead by now. It's a shame that we cannot see his end through the dust.’’ said one of the students of the Holy Courtyard of Xue Yue, which confirmed everyone's thoughts about the battle. Nobody was worried about Mu Fan losing against some nobody with no background.
That's right. How could a person, whom nobody knew, compete with a genius of the Holy Courtyard of Xue Yue who could control forces and had broken through to the fifth Ling Qi layer? However, they did not know that the person was Lin Feng, and he could easily overshadow Mu Fan. They would never put the likes of commoners in their eyes.
’’Brother Mu Fan, congratulations on your victory.’’ said the young noble student of the Holy Courtyard of Xue Yue. He was convinced that Mu Fan had won the battle. If he lost, all of the students of the Holy Courtyard of Xue Yue would lose face. How was it possible for Mu Fan to lose to a nobody?
’’Don't get excited too early.’’ said a cold and indifferent voice coming from the cage. Everybody was astonished, and they could feel their hearts pounding in their chests.
’’Someone who has no determination to risk their life on the path of cultivation. Someone who relies on status and puts themselves high above other cultivators... can never be strong.’’ said the voice coming from the cloud of dust, which was slowly fading until only Lin Feng could be seen standing in the cage.
Lin Feng slowly turned around. Mu Fan's body was lying on the ground in a terrible state. There was no doubt when looking at this scene that Mu Fan was dead and almost split in two.
’’Boom.’’ It was if a bomb had detonated in people's brains. Their hearts were racing at full speed. The result of the battle was completely different from what they had expected. Lin Feng had won the battle.
They had never heard of this person before and he was wearing a silver mask to hide his face... yet he had required only his bare hands to mercilessly kill a genius of the Holy Courtyard of Xue Yue with a single strike.
Lin Feng's eyes were still calm and his emotions were still steady;he had known the result of the battle since the beginning.
’’Mu Fan lost?’’ Each and every single student of the Holy Courtyard of Xue Yue had their eyes wide open in shock. They couldn't believe the results of the battle, especially that Lin Feng had required only a single bare handed strike to kill Mu Fan.
’’Hehe, a genius of the Holy Courtyard of Xue Yue only amount to this much, I see.’’ said Lin Feng indifferently.
Everybody from the Holy Courtyard felt anger in their hearts. They had been humiliated time and time again by his words. Lin Feng had just humiliated the students of the Holy Courtyard of Xue Yue to the extreme and thus indirectly humiliated the entire Holy Courtyard.
If the geniuses of the Holy Courtyard of Xue were not even strong, how could it even have a chance to become recognized as the strongest institute?
The students of the Holy Courtyard of Xue Yue had such evil expressions in their eyes that it wouldn't be surprising if they ignited and flames burst forth.
’’You were lucky to win, that's all... So you shouldn't be arrogant like that.’’ said the noble and wealthy young man, which stupefied Lin Feng.
How was it possible to be so unbelievably shameless?
’’Alright, shall we test my luck again? You can be the next to come down and fight me.’’ said Lin Feng while raising his head to look at the young man. The young man was shocked.
When Lin Feng saw that the young man wasn't replying, he continued: ’’I guess as a student of the Holy Courtyard of Xue Yue, you are too weak to fight against me. Go and flap your filthy mouth somewhere else.’’
The young noble student furiously glared at Lin Feng.
’’Each and every single one of you keeps bragging about how strong and powerful you are, but when you are in a real battle, you cannot withstand a single attack. You often advertise how great the Holy Courtyard of Xue Yue is, but you are relying on such weaklings who fight rigged battles. You are all remarkably shameless.’’ said Lin Feng ignoring the young man's expression and then continued: ’’But I understand that you guys need to gain some prestige. You need to make other people believe that the Holy Courtyard of Xue Yue is influential and powerful... but it is clear from what happened that the Holy Courtyard only knows how to put on a show.’’
Lin Qian was fixedly staring at Lin Feng. This guy's words were sharp... His words had killed all hope of the publicity strategies having any success for the Holy Courtyard.
Everybody was wondering why this young man hated the Holy Courtyard of Xue Yue so much that he would directly interfere with their publicity efforts.
The friendly young man was staring at Lin Feng and paying attention to every single movement and detail of his body.
’’He's only broken through to the fifth Ling Qi layer and he can already carry out energy attacks... That's not an easy accomplishment.’’ thought the friendly young man who had been the referee. He still had a warm smile on his face, and he said: ’’Winner!’’
At that moment, a silhouette was quietly leaving the cage.
Lin Feng wasn't talking anymore. He turned around, looked at the cage and started to leave. Lin Feng said to the man in charge of the cage ’’Can I come in now’’?
The noble young man still did not reply to Lin Feng.
It seemed like everybody actually gave a great deal of face to the warm and friendly young man. He then said: ’’Since he won the fight, what are you all looking at him for?’’ Everybody was surprised, especially the students of the Holy Courtyard, who then nodded in a docile way.
’’Alright then, twenty purity stones for killing it or you can tame it.’’ said the man in charge of the cage to Lin Feng.
It seemed like everybody was particularly scared of the friendly young man, especially those students of the Holy Courtyard of Xue Yue. Who could talk that calmly and make the students of the Holy Courtyard obey so easily?
Lin Feng was looking at that daemonic fire lion and smiled. That beast was really a terrifying monster.
It was extremely strong, quick and agile. These two wings could lacerate the atmosphere.
How could the noble young man refuse to offer it to Mu Fan? Besides, if Mu Fan had accepted, he would have had a debt towards the noble young man.
Lin Feng happily handed over twenty purity stones, and the man in charge of the cage immediately let go of the daemonic fire lion. He looked at Lin Feng with an envious expression.
’’ROAR.’’ roared the daemonic fire lion. Its body started shaking and it moved towards Lin Feng. It opened its gigantic mouth and unleashed flames from its mouth. The entire atmosphere was fire red and filled with a scorching heat.
Lin Feng was surprised. He jumped up into the air, brandished his long sword and moved it towards the beast.
