"Ok. Enough. Nobody is allowed to spread the news," said Lun Bi Sheng Tian to the Third Master sternly. He had no choice. It was a crucial moment for the Great Competition. Zhu Xie was extremely strong. Even though cultivators who the strength of the legendary cultivation layer didn't need to fear Lin Feng, offending him because of an ungrateful and stupid grandson wasn't worth it.
Lun Bi Ba's behavior had always been despicable and everybody knew that if he continued acting like that, someday, he would get killed. Sure enough, Lin Feng had been the one to finally do so.
Therefore, Lun Bi Sheng Tian didn't intend to punish Lin Feng for that. The Third Master understood Lun Bi Sheng Tian. From now on, nobody was allowed to talk about Lun Bi Ba's death, or they would be killed.
The atmosphere at the top of Huang Dang Mountain was tense. There were no guests watching, so the atmosphere was a bit empty. The twelve cultivators who were there were all extremely strong and their eyes were filled with fighting intent.
"Next battle, Chu Li from the Lun Bi Empire versus Fa Heng from the Fa Lan Empire," said Lun Bi Sheng Tian. Everybody was surprised and raised their heads when they heard that.
By organizing the battles that way, they had made sure that one of the empire's young geniuses would be qualified and would finish in the top six. That way, the top six wouldn't be filled with cultivators from ancient sects and clans. No matter what would happen afterwards, the empires would still be honored that a young genius from an empire had finished in the top six.
The Lun Bi Empire had planned things that way for that precise reason, of course.
Lin Feng knew how strong those people were; they hadn't finished in the top twelve because of luck. It was impossible in this kind of Competition.
Fa Heng was a young genius from the Fa Lan Empire, a level two high-level Supreme God. Even if he couldn't be compared with people like Xie Dian, he was much, much stronger than people from Tian Dong City or Ao Lai City.
Chu Li was more discreet. He was wearing a blue robe and today he wasn't wearing a mask, but a plaited bamboo hat instead. He didn't seem very nervous. He was so calm that it was difficult to imagine that he was a level three high-level Supreme God.
Lin Feng was surprised to see so many level three high-level Supreme Gods, but this kind of Competition really attracted extremely strong people.
"Fa Lan Empire, Fa Heng," said Fa Heng introducing himself, and smiling broadly. He looked at Chu Li as if they were old friends, not opponents.
Chu Li nodded indifferently. Then he clenched his fists and got ready to attack. He didn't intend to introduce himself.
The fight was about to begin!
Chu Li shouted furiously and took the initiative to attack first. His black robe fluttered in the wind as an explosive strength emerged from his body. He flashed forwards and threw punches at incredible speed.
Fa Heng couldn't see Chu Li clearly anymore. His pupils opened wide. He just saw two fists coming closer and closer. In the end, bam! He was punched in the head.
BOOM! Fa Heng's head exploded. A mixture of white fluids and blood gushed out and splashed all around. His body collapsed, his bones clacking. A tragic and violent death!
Chu Li then flashed away and stood in a corner at the top of the mountain. He seemed completely indifferent, as if he had killed an ant, and not a young genius from the Fa Lan Empire.
"Eh..." Lun Bi Sheng Tian's expression changed drastically. He had the impression he was going to faint. What the hell was wrong with Chu Li? Why had he killed Fa Heng?
"HOW AUDACIOUS! How do the members of the Lun Bi Empire dare violate the rules of the Great Competition? We agreed on rules! We said that after a hundred attacks, we would surrender! Lun Bi Sheng Tian, you better have a very, very good explanation!" shouted the Great Elder of the Fa Lan Empire furiously. He felt humiliated and furious, especially since they had an agreement with the Lun Bi Empire.
Lun Bi Sheng Tian pulled a long face, angered now. The elder of the Fa Lan Empire had revealed their secret agreement! Damn!
As expected, when Fa Ze, the Great Elder of the Fa Lan Empire shouted, all the leaders looked at Lun Bi Sheng Tian angrily.
"Hehe, alright, Lun Bi Sheng Tian, you wanted to cheat, huh?" sneered Gu Jin Ze. He was an ally of the Lun Bi Empire and didn't know about their deal. What did the Lun Bi Empire think of the Gu Gu Clan?
"Hmph! Lun Bi Sheng Tian, so you wanted to cheat, yes?" shouted Lei Jin Gang furiously.
Lun Bi Sheng Tian smiled wryly. He tried to find an excuse, but he couldn't.
"Everybody, if the Lun Bi Empire and the Fa Lan Empire had had an agreement, why would I have killed Fa Heng?
"You think I didn't know that killing Fa Heng would be a huge problem and everyone would be offended? I know that the Fa Lan Empire is extremely strong. If our two empires had really had an agreement, why wouldn't I have waited for a hundred attacks? Then Fa Heng would have given up.
"Please use your brain and think carefully," explained Chu Li indifferently, as Lun Bi Sheng Tian was dumbstruck.
Indeed. If the two empires had really had an agreement, why would Chu Li have killed Fa Heng? A hundred attacks in, Fa Heng would have surrendered. That would have been a peaceful way of solving the situation but he hadn't, and had decided to offend the Fa Lan Empire.
Therefore, when Chu Li said that, all the leaders calmed down, but still they didn't understand what was going on and why the Lun Bi Empire had done that. Why did they want to offend the Fa Lan Empire?
Therefore, everybody looked at Fa Ze glumly.
Since the Lun Bi Empire hadn't done anything wrong, it meant that the Fa Lan Empire was trying to provoke everyone. At that moment, the Great Elder of the Fa Lan Empire cried on the inside. Chu Li had ruined everything.
He was a talented young genius, and he was also good at plotting!
"Alright, we will remember the Lun Bi Empire. I'm sure we'll meet again. Hmph!" said Fa Ze angrily. Whatever he said couldn't change anything. Fa Heng was already dead, and even worse, Chu Li had killed Fa Heng in only one punch!
Fa Ze took Fa Heng's corpse in his arms and left with it. He now had to report the situation. He hoped he wouldn't get in trouble.
Fa Heng had suffered a tragic death. Many people looked at Chu Li. He was another exception, another little-known person who had achieved unexpected success. He wasn't an independent cultivator, however; he was a young genius from the Lun Bi Empire.
Lin Feng stared at Chu Li and realized that he looked like one of his worst enemies, really similar! Even his voice sounded similar...
Lin Feng was concerned. Chu Li was extremely strong...
Lin Feng felt uncomfortable. Chu Li seemed extremely cold and arrogant. It was like he was trying to provoke everyone. Why, though?
"The next battle is..." said Lun Bi Sheng Tian after that. He got ready to announce who was going to fight next, but then he stopped and suddenly glanced at Lin Feng and Xie Dian.
Even if I can't punish you for killing Lun Bi Ba, he was still from the Lun Bi Clan after all. Today, we will see how it goes for you, thought Lun Bi Sheng Tian, smiling icily. A battle between Lin Feng and Xie Dian would be fun.
Everybody knew that Zhu Xie was the killer now, so Lun Bi Sheng Tian wanted to see him fight against Xie Dian!
"The next battle is between Zhu Xie, an independent cultivator, and Xie Dian from the Ancient Demonic Clan!" said Lun Bi Sheng Tian. Everybody at the top of the Huang Dang Mountain was stupefied.
Lin Feng's eyes filled with killing intent. His eyes gradually became bloodshot.
That's what I've been waiting for the whole time!, thought Lin Feng, grinning fiercely.
When the leader of the Ancient Demonic Clan heard that, he had a bad feeling, but he still nodded at Xie Dian. He was very confident in their young genius.
He was convinced that Xie Dian could rank first at the Competition! Zhu Xie would become Xie Dian's stepping stone!
Xie Dian looked at Lin Feng ferociously. He couldn't wait to become the champion of this Competition!
