Chapter 70: Meng Quan
Translator: / KurazyTolanzuraytor Editor: Lucas
While Duan Ling Tian's spirit was shocked.
"This Meng Quan is not simple."
Xiao Yu's expression was heavy as well.
"Brother Yu, you wouldn't be wanting to say that this person's strength is also bizarre like Duan Ling Tian's, right?"
Xiao Yun didn't take it seriously.
Just at this moment.
Meng Quan and Xiao Yong had started their battle.
Xiao Yong's body moved as if transforming into a falling leaf, lightly floating as he flashed towards Meng Quan.
Middle grade Profound Rank movement technique, Leaf Dance!
"You're a man, why cultivate a woman's movement technique."
Meng Quan shook his head.
His legs stomped on the ground as he transformed into a cannonball, rushing out to intercept Xiao Yong.
His speed was faster than Xiao Yong's!
Xiao Yong's pupils constricted. As he flashed towards Meng Quan, he slapped out a palm of accumulated force. His attack was bold and unconstrained, and with Origin Energy raging.
Devastating Ox Fist!
When Meng Quan swung out his fist, his origin energy burst apart and caused a surge of invisible currents of air as it moved to intercept Xiao Yong's palm strike.
Above both of them were two ancient mammoth silhouettes each, which dashed out and collided together with a loud bang.
Meng Quan's body lightly trembled.
Xiao Yong emitted a shrill cry as he was blasted flying.
"I'm not a match for you."
Xiao Yong slowly stood up and nodded to Meng Quan. He was sincerely convinced and thus retreated.
"Hehe, it was a good fight."
Meng Quan scratched the back of his head and smiled foolishly.
But his eyes that flickered with a shrewd light sold him out.
"You had already noticed earlier that Xiao Yong wasn't a match for him?"
Li Fei looked at Duan Ling Tian as if wanting to get the answer from Duan Ling Tian's face.
"This Meng Quan concealed his strength. His true strength is probably on par with Li Qing's."
Duan Ling Tian's eyes narrowed as he stared fixedly at Meng Quan.
It was difficult to discern the cultivation of a martial artist at the Core Formation Stage and above only by looking because of the presence of Origin Energy. The only way to determine an approximate cultivation level was to base the estimation on the ancient mammoth silhouettes that were developed by the martial artist from drawing upon the forces of heaven and earth...
But Duan Ling Tian, who had merged with the memories of Rebirth Martial Emperor, was equivalent to a living Rebirth Martial Emperor.
His eyesight was unique.
He could discern that Meng Quan wasn't a first level Core Formation martial artist.
The feeling Meng Quan gave him was similar to Xiao Yu, Lin Zhuo, and Li Qing.
The second level of the Core Formation Stage.
"Even though he can defeat Xiao Yong, that only shows that his martial skills have a high cultivation stage... Up until now, he has only exerted the strength of two ancient mammoths. How did you see through his concealed cultivation?"
Li Fei obviously didn't believe him.
Duan Ling Tian shook his head and smiled, opting to not debate on the matter with Li Fei.
It wouldn't be long before the facts proved everything.
"So that's how it is."
The corners of Xiao Yu's mouth curled into a smile. Obviously he noticed as well.
"Xiao Yong is really useless!"
Xiao Yun's beautiful eyebrows knit as her body jerked before lightly descending nearby to Meng Quan.
Xiao Yu couldn't help but laugh bitterly at this scene.
"Brother, can Xiao Yun defeat him?" Xiao Lan asked in a light voice.
"Based on my estimation, among the young geniuses currently present in the Star Observation Platform, there are at most three people who might have a chance at defeating him... So much as there might not even be three people."
Xiao Yu shook his head.
Xiao Lan's elegant and refined face emitted a shocked expression. She didn't expect that besides Duan Ling Tian, there was another who her brother would regard so highly.
"Big guy, I'll fight you," Xiao Yun shouted in a delicate voice.
"Woman? I don't bully women." Meng Quan frowned.
Xiao Yun's face turned red from anger and her delicate body started to wildly tremble.
"Does this Meng Quan think that defeating Xiao Yong makes him peerless under the heavens? One month ago during the Xiao Clan's Martial Meet, Xiao Yong wasn't Xiao Yun's match either, yet he actually dares to look down upon Xiao Yun."
"This bumpkin probably doesn't even recognize Xiao Yun."
"Since when did the Meng Clan have such a figure?"
Some of the youths from the small clans started to discuss together.
Xiao Yun shouted in a delicate voice as her graceful figure transformed into a gust of wind that flew towards Meng Quan.
In terms of speed, she was faster than the earlier Xiao Yong, even having a speed comparable to Meng Quan's.
Meng Quan was slightly shocked. Not daring to continue looking down upon Xiao Yun, he moved to intercept her.
Devastating Ox Fist!
This time, Meng Quan and Xiao Yun collided head on and were equally matched.
"This Xiao Yun's strength is quite good."
Duan Ling Tian was slightly shocked.
"That's for sure. Among the younger generation females of the Xiao Clan, her natural talent isn't inferior to Xiao Lan's." Li Fei said.
Duan Ling Tian laughed as he asked, "How about compared to you?"
"More or less..." Li Fei said.
"Xiao Yun is about to lose."
Abruptly, Duan Ling Tian saw the slight movements of Meng Quan and his eyebrows raised up.
This guy finally couldn't hold back any longer...
He could clearly see the Origin Energy on Meng Quan's fist instantly increase explosively, surpassing the scope of a first level Core Formation martial artist.
But it did not reach the second level of the Core Formation Stage, thus it did not draw upon the forces of heaven and earth to develop the third ancient mammoth silhouette.
But even so, it wasn't something Xiao Yun could compare to.
Devastating Ox Fist!
Meng Quan attacked once more, its sound and force like thunder.
Xiao Yun was knocked backwards and her face turned deathly pale as she looked at Meng Quan in disbelief.
She noticed that the strength of this big guy seemed to instantaneously increase a level, completely suppressing her and causing her to feel powerless.
"Let's do it again."
Meng Quan grinned.
Xiao Yun glared in return, angrily returning to Xiao Yu and Xiao Lan's side.
All the young geniuses form the smaller clans had expressions of disbelief and couldn't help themselves from cheering.
Although they had compassion towards women, Meng Quan was, after all, a young genius from the smaller clans like them, so Meng Quan's accomplishments allowed them to gain pride and satisfaction.
"I'll battle you!"
A figure flew out.
It was precisely Li Zhong.
Although Li Zhong's strength was pretty good, it was still difficult for him to withstand the might of a single punch from Meng Quan, so he lost quickly.
"OK, you guys play first, I'll take a short rest."
After defeating Li Zhong, Meng Quan returned to the pergola and started gobbling down the light refreshments and tea prepared by the Xiao Clan.
As time flew by...
Most of the people present had commenced a battle.
Only a few youths of the three great clans were yet to commence a battle.
Among them were Duan Ling Tian and Li Fei.
Li Fei flew out and descended in the center of the Star Observation Platform, attracting many burning gazes.
In terms of appearance, Li Fei was on par with Xiao Lan.
But the two of them were completely different types.
Compared the Xiao Lan, who was like a fairy that transcended the mundane, Li Fei was the other extreme.
With a devilish body and a face of an angel, she was even more attractive to men.
Li Fei's gaze descended upon Xiao Lan as she called her name in challenge.
Both being one of Aurora City's three beauties, none of them were willing to give in, as they both wanted to defeat the other in an aspect.
For a moment, the gazes of the people present all shone.
A spar between two of the three beauties of Aurora City was a rare scene indeed.
They all felt that this trip wasn't for naught.
Xiao Lan moved with graceful steps, coming to face Li Fei.
Two unrivalled beauties standing together caused the atmosphere in the Star Observation Platform to become silent. No one was willing to disturb this beautiful scene.
Duan Ling Tian naturally wouldn't miss their fight, and he watched on with a fixed gaze.
Li Fei moved, seeming like a flashing red rose, her speed fast like a bolt of lightning.
Xiao Lan moved as well. Her transcendent figure seemed to flutter.
Above each of the two young girls were two ancient mammoth silhouettes that dashed out, seeming to be cheering for them.
In terms of speed, the two young girls were on par.
Li Fei's fist smashed down with Origin Energy bursting forth, transforming into a fist silhouette that seemed to be a falling shooting star. It was difficult to distinguish its genuineness.
Cloud Dispelling Palm!
Xiao Lan's palm swept out with a shapeless current filled with Origin Energy that dispersed out as if transforming into a group of white clouds. They seemed tranquil but actually contained killing intent.
Among the fist silhouettes, Li Fei's true fist strike blasted out, creating a surge of explosions in the air.
After the group of clouds, Xiao Lan's fine, jade-like hands appeared as a palm suffused with vast amounts of Origin Energy descended.
The palm and fist collided with each other.
The bodies of the two girls jerked before both retreating three steps.
Noticing Li Fei's body jerking, Xiao Lan seemed to want to continue attacking.
"Little Fei, leave it at this. Even if you continue, it would only result in you two being equally matched. How about stopping here?"
Duan Ling Tian smiled.
Li Fei glared at Duan Ling Tian.
But she knew that what Duan Ling Tian said was a fact.
Xiao Yu stood out as well as he said with a smile, "Yeah, you two will be considered as tied. If the two of you go at it head to head, the result would be both of you being injured."
After returning to Duan Ling Tian's side, Li Fei asked in a questioning manner, "Were you worried that I'd injure her?"
"Slander...I absolutely didn't have such thoughts. I was only afraid she would injure you and affect your ranking in the Hidden Dragon List."
Duan Ling Tian hurriedly provided an explanation.
Li Fei's expression eased up slightly.
"Of course!" Duan Ling Tian said decisively.
"Eh, that Meng Quan..."
Suddenly, Li Fei lifted her head and looked afar.
Duan Ling Tian looked over as well.
Meng Quan, who had eaten his fill, burped before returning to the center of the Star Observation Platform.
His gaze descended upon a proud and aloof figure that stood afar.
"That's right, no doubt about it. You are... Li Qing, right? Didn't you say we were all bumpkins and we could challenge you? I'll now represent us bumpkins and challenge you, the Li Clan's genius."
Meng Quan was speaking to Li Qing.
Li Qing's expression turned gloomy as he walked out quickly.
"Are you sure you want to challenge me?"
The corners of Li Qing's mouth curled into a sneer as if he had heard the joke of the century.
"What's with all the nonsenses? Let's fight!"
Meng Quan had an impatient expression.
"Good, very good...I will quickly make you regret your decision."
Li Qing turned angry from embarrassment.
Li Qing's body flashed towards Meng Quan as three ancient mammoth silhouettes instantly formed above him.
His speed was shockingly fast.
"I heard long ago that the Li Clan's number one in the younger generation, Li Qing, had cultivated his high grade Profound Rank movement technique, Swimming Dragon Steps, to the Mastery stage. Seeing it today, he really has a well-deserved reputation as expected!"
"Since Meng Quan dared to challenge him, his courage deserves compliment...But unfortunately, before Li Qing, who's at the second level of the Core Formation Stage, it isn't enough."
"No matter what, Meng Quan is fighting for us."
The young geniuses of the smaller clans discussed with each other.
"Finally, I have a worthy opponent," Meng Quan said in a slightly lazy manner, his body moving straight after.
Instantly, three ancient mammoth silhouettes appeared above him...
Meng Quan's legs stomped on the ground as he transformed into a cannonball that had a speed not one bit inferior to Li Qing's, moving to intercept him.
"The strength of three ancient mammoths..."
On the Star Observation Platform, besides Duan Ling Tian and Xiao Yu, everyone else was dumbstruck.
This Meng Quan was actually a second level Core Formation martial artist!
