406 – Replace
Chapter 406: Replace!
People have a natural fear of things unknown to them.
Li Muyang had been living in Tiandu as his name spread by word of mouth but he had limited actual contact with these people.
What kind of person was Li Muyang? What sort of ability did he have? What sort of level had his cultivation reached?——The information that they know about him was extremely little.
The most important thing was that he was admitted into the extremely mysterious Starry Sky Academy. What state had he cultivated to, and what powerful skills had he learned there were all information that they were unaware of.
All along, Li Muyang had been deified.
After he killed Cui Zhaoren, not only did the Cui family fail to retaliate, he even enrolled into Starry Sky Academy.
After the West Wind’s Monitoring Division was destroyed, not only the West Wind imperial family did not get revenge, but had to pinch their nose and acknowledge him as the ‘Hero of the Kingdom’.
His fame rose even more in Starry Sky Academy. One brush stroke of his filled a courtyard with the atmosphere of spring, and he was accepted as a disciple by the divine continent’s ‘Double walls of calligraphy and painting’ Gu Huangwu.
Moreover, as soon as he got to Tiandu, he defeated the well-admired and respected G.o.d of Sword of West wind——
If the G.o.d of Sword of West wind could not stop him, then who would be willing to go find him to get themselves killed?
If one want to come up and kill Li Muyang, then they must compare themselves with the G.o.d of sword of West wind first.
So, now Li Muyang was instead very safe.
“I see” Li Muyang smiled. “Then I do not need to wear a disguise anymore?”
“No need.” Lu Qingming said, smiling. “We previously suggested you to disguise yourself when you go out was to not to let the Cui family know about your ident.i.ty because they would constantly send people to get rid of you. But now that your ident.i.ty has been exposed, no matter what, they are going to try to take you life anyway. You might as well go out openly, and let the world appreciate your graceful bearing.”
Li Muyang smiled shyly. “What graceful bearing do I have? Compared with the Gongzi and young master of Tiandu there really is a huge difference between us. How can the rays of light of a rotten gra.s.s contend against the brilliance of the sun and the moon?”
“No need to be modest? Muyang is handsome and has a graceful appearance. Even in the entire Tiandu, there isn’t many people that are on an equal level with you.” Lu Qingming stated solemnly. He will not let others say that his son is not good enough, and he also will not let his son say that he was not good enough. “It’s not an exaggeration to say that you’re the most handsome man in Tiandu.”
Li Muyang loved to hear these words.
So, Li Muyang more shyly responded. “Thank you Uncle Lu.”
“Tomorrow is my father’s birthday, there should be a lot of guests, at that time show your true face to everyone.” Lu Qingming said to Li Muyang with a smiling expression, but his words contained another meaning.
“Okay.” Li Muyang nodded, but did not think much.
He was willing to reveal his true face, as he was very satisfied with his present appearance.
Let’s give the women of Tiandu some benefits.
Lu Qingming thoughtfully looked at Li Muyang, before he said with a smile, “I’m glad you’re alive, Be careful in the future, especially when you go out. You must let us know, I will send someone to escort you.”
“Thank you, Uncle Lu.” Li Muyang declined his offer: “I have s...o...b..ll, nothing will happen to me. But my family, I will have to ask Uncle Lu to help me take care of them. I’m worried that since they failed to kill me, they will get revenge on my family instead.” “
“I understand.” Lu Qingming nodded. “Your father works in the Lu residence, he should be safe. Your mother does not go out most of the time, so she should be fine. But s.h.i.+nian is very active, she likes to go out to play, I will send someone to follow her well. I won’t let anything happen to her.”
Li Muyang breathed a sigh of relief, and expressed his thanks again, “thank you, Uncle Lu.”
“Why so polite?” Lu Qingming was really gratified to see him thinking for his family all the time, but at the same slightly bitter. He was his son, but they ended up being unable to acknowledge each other. It really was extremely difficult to bear. “Didn’t I say we’re one family?”
“Uncle Lu is right, then I will not be polite——” A genuine and honest smile crossed Li Muyang’s face.
Lu Qingming clapped his hand upon Li Muyang’s shoulder. “Take a good rest, I’m going out to deal with some affairs.”
“All right, Uncle Lu Shu must be busy.” Li Muyang was about to get up to walk him out, when Lu Qingming pressed him back down. “Your body is weak, don’t get up.”
Watching Lu Qingming’s figure going away, Li Muyang’s heart was filled with grat.i.tude.
“Uncle Lu treats me as a nephew, I must not sit still and do nothing when the Lu family is in crisis.” Li Muyang said to himself
Glancing around, he shouted: “s...o...b..ll, s...o...b..ll?”
Outside the window, came the sound of s...o...b..ll spitting bubbles——
West Wind imperial palace, Yangxin palace hall.
“Trash. A bunch of trash.” West Wind Emperor Chu Xianda was stamping with fury, mercilessly throwing the Jade Ruyi in his hand away. “What is the use of raising you? Just a cart driver, you couldn’t even kill a cart driver——Yet you still have the face to come back to see me? Why don’t you cut your throat and commit suicide on the spot and show me your loyalty?”
Cui Jian was knelt before the huge table. He knocked his forehead against the floor as he explained in a low voice. “Your Majesty please calm down, it’s not that we were incapable, but that Li Kefeng of the City patrol is really hateful. He repeatedly obstructed us from carrying our duties. If Li Kefeng were not there, the Monitoring Division could have gone to aid the Still Water Sword school.”
As expected Cui Jian very easily led the rage to another direction.
Hearing Cui Jian mention Mu Yubai, Chu Xianda was even more furious. He fumed, “Mi Yubai, the G.o.d of Sword of West Wind, the entire world thinks that his sword skills are the best in West Wind, and call him the G.o.d of sword. My West Wind imperial family is also incredibly courteous to him, and values him. But I didn’t expect him to be so weak that he was unable to withstand a single blow——Does that Li Muyang really possess remarkable abilities? Mu Yubai could not even kill a little driver, what qualifications does he have to protect the Kingdom for me? What ability does he have to help me fight against powerful enemies?”
“Lose face, the face of the Still water sword school is lost, the face of the imperial family is lost. If the enemy kingdoms knew that the G.o.d of sword of my West wind kingdom is just a pillow with an embroidered case, they would have dispatched their troops and launched an attack already. West wind is in danger.”
Cui Jian knelt down in silent, no longer dared to speak
Whether it was the one above, or the G.o.d of Sword of West Wind Mu Yubai, he did not want to provoke either. It did not matter, the one Chu Xianda was cursing at was not him.
Waiting until Chu Xianda threw a tantrum and calmed a little, Cui Jian added, “your Majesty, Li Muyang was not beheaded this time, but it instead made him famous again. He is now the topic that all people of Tiandu talk about, he is now known as——”
“Known as what?”
“The Sun of the Kingdom.”
“The Sun of the Kingdom? The Sun of the Kingdom?” Chu Xianda jumped up to find something to smash again. He fumbled around the table for a while and hurled the ink stone in a fit of temper. “What qualifications does he have to become the sun of the Kingdom? He had repeatedly ruined my plans, he is a locust of the kingdom, the scourge of the Kingdom——yet he has the nerve to call himself the sun of the Kingdom?”
Yan Xiangma, who was kneeling behind Cui Jian, raised his head to look at his older cousin who was tensed up and his back bend, a look of worry crossing his face.
Cousin knows the Emperor hates Li Muyang, hates the fellow who had repeatedly spoiled his plans and humiliated him. But that person’s actions are ‘praised’ and is now known as the ‘sun of the Kingdom’——The Kingdom has only one sun, which is the Emperor before him. But Li Muyang has become the sun of the Kingdom, then who is the person in front?
“Cui Jian.” Breathing heavily, Chu Xianda said coldly.
“Subordinate is here.”
“Take the Monitoring Division to do one thing for me.” Chu Xianda commanded. He motioned with his hand and Cui Jian immediately rose to his feet, bowing his and moving towards Chu Xianda.
As Chu Xianda whispered a few words, a light flashed across Cui Jian’s eyes. He took the order and left right away.
Chu Xianda glanced at Yan Xiangma who was still kneeling in front. “Yan Xiangma, are you loyal to me or loyal to the Cui family?”
“The Monitoring Division is the Monitoring Division of the West Wind, the West Wind is your Majesty’s West Wind. I naturally am loyal to your Majesty.” Yan Xiangma answered in a clear and loud voice, daring not to lift his head up,
“Hm. A smart fellow. Then tell me, what happened at that time?”
Yan Xiangma was inwardly surprised.
His Cousin Cui Jian had just reported the incident, but in a blink of the eye the Emperor had once again asked the same question, which indicated that he did not completely trust his cousin?
The most important thing was that how should he answer the question?
He was just asked whether he is loyal to him or loyal to the Cui family. If his answer were the same as his cousin, then the Emperor would certainly think that he was loyal to the Cui family.
But if his answer were not the same as his cousin Cui Jian, then where would his cousin be pushed to? Where will the Cui family be placed?
“Your Majesty——” Yan Xiangma was rapidly thinking through his wording, but at the same time he also dared not to take a pause, “that day when I rushed to the scene——”
When Yan Xiangma came out of the Yangxin Palace hall, his legs were without strength, and his body was drenched in sweat.
When the cold wind blew, he instantly felt a chill.
All along, n.o.body had a good opinion of the current West wind Emperor.
He was called obstinate and self-opinionated, loved to brag and show off, was subjected to changing moods, and was called mediocre emperor who had accomplished nothing———
They said that he was able to live a comfortable and prosperous life because of his ancestors. With the imperial power in his hands, how many more years would the Chu clan continue to rule was most likely very easy to calculate.
However, after today, Yan Xiangma felt that, perhaps the world was somewhat prejudiced against this person. What he had shown——those violent or cruel or foolish matters——were all just a layer of human skin mask that he had put on himself?
The palace city was empty and quiet.
The vast square where the hundred of officials kneel, as well as the 81 steps of the heavenly stair were covered by snow and ice, imposing and majestic, but also exuded a bleak and biting coldness.
When he was about to leave, the words that the Emperor to him said with a smile sent chills down his spine.
“The Yan family has been the subordinate of the Cui family for generations? Would you like to replace them and take their place?”
Chapter 407: Which is the flaw?
The South of Mist Mountain, Still water sword school.
Snowflakes were fluttering about outside. The entire Mist Mountain was blanketed in snow and ice. Everywhere was like white jade, like gla.s.s, like this was the realm of celestial beings.
Hundreds of white-clothed disciples were kneeling among the ice and snow from the door of the hall of the Sword G.o.d to the Divine sword plaza.
The white clothes were like snow, the snow was more beautiful than the white robes.
The atmosphere in the main hall of the Sword G.o.d was more dignified. The snow was unable to enter the hall, but the pillars inside and the people seemed to have been frozen solid.
In the center of the hall, a white jade ice coffin was placed.
The coffin was filled with steaming blue spirit water.
The G.o.d of sword of West Wind, the Master of the Still water sword school, Mu Yubai, was soaking in the blue water. His eyes were closed and there was not the slightest breathing detectable from his body.
A dozen of white robed men crowded around the ice coffin with a grim expressions on their faces. Their eyes contained an insuppressible, violent anger.
“That kid must have used some sort of crafty tricks. Otherwise, there is no way he could injure our Master after just one year of studying in Starry Sky Academy. It is unbelievable——” One of the three wild guests of Still Water Li Xiuwei fumed, clasping his sword tight, “regardless, first let me go sever that boy’s head. Otherwise, I can’t swallow this anger.”
“That boy’s head is mine. No one else can take it. If they want to, first ask whether my Air breaking sword agrees or not——” One of the three wild guests, w.a.n.g Li, said coldly.
He had the closest relations.h.i.+p with Baili Changhe, as close as brothers. Since Baili Changhe had died tragically in Li Muyang’s hands, and his corpse could not even be found, then no matter what, he had to avenge for his brother. “Li Muyang’s head is mine.”
“We don’t know how Master is now, the most important thing now is to seek treatment. You guys are just clamouring loudly here, what about Master’s safety?” One of the three Still water gentlemen smiled coldly. “Is Master’s life more important or is taking the boy’s life more important?”
“People fis.h.i.+ng for fame, just looking for a chance to kill. Is there a need to discuss it here?” In Gentleman s.h.i.+ Tao’s hand was a carved bloodstone as he said in an indifferent tone.
“This is the matter of I, Li Xiuwei, why did you sissy boys interrupt?” Li Xiuwei snapped. A wild guest was a wild guest, at the first sign of disagreement he wanted to draw his sword and kill.
“What? Do you want to fight?” w.a.n.g Li’s sword was whistling in his hand like a boiling copper kettle.
“Then let’s fight, do you think I’m afraid of you?”
“Baili Changhe is considered a famous person among you wild guests, but was still killed by a n.o.body, it really is——surprising.”
“s.h.i.+ Tao, what are you trying to say?”
“I didn’t mean anything.”
“Are you saying that us three wild guests are inferior?”
“You said it, not me.”
“Do you dare to go out and fight with me?”
“If you have the interest, then I’m happy to accompany you.”
“That’s enough.” A white robed elder roared.
Seeing Elder Chengfeng was suddenly enraged. Gentleman s.h.i.+ Tao and wild guest Li Xiuwei both stopped clamouring and dared not mutter a single word again.
Wind rider sword Li Chengfeng ran a cold glance over the several people, saying in a fierce voice. “Whether Master will survive or not is unknown, do you want to create a big disturbance? If Master survives, naturally everyone will be happy. But even if Master is not here, there is still us old guys watching——The Still water sword school has been established for thousands of years, it is not that easy for it to be overturned.”
“Elder, we did not mean that——”
“It was just that Stone man going too far——”
Wind rider sword Li Chengfeng naturally knew what these people were fighting over for.
If the Master was absent, or unconscious for a while, then there needs to be a new Master to take his position.
Young Master Mu En was currently studying in Starry Sky Academy, therefore someone had to take on the duty on his behalf. The elders were old and obsessed with cultivating and rarely cared about the worldly affairs. The ones most likely to succeed the position were the Third gentleman and the second wild guest.
The Third wild guest and third gentleman had never gotten along and extremely disliked each other. Even if they were not able to take the position, they had to show their att.i.tude of not wanting the other person to succeed. This was the source of the dispute.
“The most important matter now is the treatment of Master.” Elder Lingyun cast a worried look at Mu Yubai in the ice coffin. “Divine doctor Hua had examined him, and said that Master is in a critical state. There was the Ruyi water s.h.i.+eld protecting his body, so the tens of thousand beams of sword qi did not damage his pivotal areas. We have transferred qi into his body, which triggered the activation of essential qi of his body. Now he is soaking it in the carefree spiritual coffin, receiving treatment from the thousand year old spirit stone, which will absorb the heated toxins and internal heat in his body——According to principles, Master should have awakened already, why is he still not showing any signs of movement?”
“It really is strange.” Elder Chengeng said with a puzzled expression. “This situation, is almost unheard of. Could it——he has wounds on other parts of his body?”
“But what can we do if even Divine doctor Hua was unable to do anything?”
“This won’t do——“Elder Lingyun hesitated. “Why don’t we take Master to Old immortal? Maybe he’ll have a solution. Besides, Master is in this calamity, Old immortal should know about it.”
“If Old immortal is going to be furious who is going to take the blame?” Elder Chenfeng quickly refused. “Besides, Old immortal has been focussing on cultivating and breaking the boundary for decades and had never cared about worldly matters. If we disturbed his cultivation, this responsibility is be too much——let’s wait a little longer.”
Chengfeng’s line of sight s.h.i.+fted to the ice coffin. “Perhaps after this carefree spiritual coffin had absorbed the fire poison in Master’s body, he will regain consciousness?”
In the hall, suddenly emerged circles of ripple.
The ripples rotated, turning into a blue pool.
A white-robed old man emerged out of the ripples, his hair dishevelled and walking barefoot in the air.
Everyone present knelt down.
The old man had an amiable face and his eyes were still and calm.
Even though he saw his son soaking in the ice coffin, there was no expression of sadness on his face.
He swept his eyes across, with no emotion in his voice as he said loudly, “Get up.”
The crowd rose to their feet.
Elder Lingyun bowed respectfully as he asked. “Old immortal, why did you come out?”
“We are useless, we made Old Immortal worried.” Elder Chengfeng looked ashamed.
The other people all bowed their head in shame, and dared not to make direct eye contact with the old man’s eyes.
“There should be this calamity, can’t blame others.” The old man said softly, lifting his foot in the air and stepping toward the Carefree spiritual coffin. With every step he made there was a blue footprint appearing in the air.
His reached his hand into the coffin, clasped Mu Yubai’s arm, and closed his eyes.
After a long while, he opened his eyes and stated out loud, “Yubai’s body is fine, he had just entered into a self-closing stage and is not willing to wake up.”
“Don’t want to wake up?” Everyone was shocked.
Elder Lingyun turned to look at spiritual coffin, asking in an astonished voice. “Why would Master not want to wake up?”
“In this defeat, he was shaken by his own disposition. The mind as peaceful as still water, the sword moves like flowing water; this is the ‘Still water sword technique’. He was tempted by greed, broke his disposition, and as a result his sword qi was also broken by himself. He was not wounded by the hand of others, but defeated by his own hands.” The old man explained softly, loosening Mu Yubai’s arm.
Everyone stood with their eyes cast downward, looking awkward.
Only the elder before them could say these words.
“Moreover, after this calamity, he had finally touched upon the essence of the last sword of the ‘Still water sword technique’——” The old man continued.
“Huh?” Everybody’s face lit up with wild joy.
“Master has comprehended The No Word Technique?”
“This really is a matter worth celebrating——”
“Master has been working hard for tens of years, but unexpectedly it is a blessing in disguise——
The ‘Still water sword’ was divided into a total of five techniques: Rhythm word technique, Provocative word technique, Striking word technique, Severing word technique, and No word technique. No word technique was the most mysterious of the ‘Still water technique’, as well as being the most deadly attack. No word and no movement, the sword moves like flowing water.
In order to make a breakthrough in this technique Mu Yubai had spent over 10 years of time. But unexpectedly because of a battle against Li Muyang and entered into a self-closing state, he was able to understand the profound theory of this sword technique.
If he were to learn such a sword technique, then most likely that Mu Yubai’s cultivation level would rise again, at a rate of thousand miles per day. At that time, wouldn’t he be even more worthy of the name G.o.d of sword of West wind?
“Just found the path, whether he can really make a break through the realm depends on his talent and mind——” The old man seemed indifferent with the matter. “As long as the mind is not stable, all is futile. For thousands of years, many people have been looking for a doorway. But it was locked out, and people were unable to take a glimpse of the landscape through the door——” “
“Master certainly will be able to break through and comprehend this sword technique.”
They all said in unison.
Elder Lingyun asked with a smiling expression. “Old Immortal, then what should we do now?”
“Let nature take its course.”
“That Li Muyang who wounded Master——how are we going to deal with him?”
“Kill him obviously.” Li Xiuwei said. “
“I am willing to go into battle.” s.h.i.+ Tao stated firmly.
“I came out this time, because of that boy.” The old man said calmly, “I want to see how he broke the No Word Technique of my ‘Still water sword’. For thousands of years, he is the first person able to escape unscathed under the No Word Technique.”
“What does Old immortal mean?” Elder Lingyu looked astonished.
“I want to know that, if there’s a flaw in the ‘Still water sword technique’, or is that Muyang boy a flaw——” said the old man softly. “This concerns the thousand year old foundation of the Still water sword school. I must not be careless.”
“I understand.” Elder Chengfeng nodded. “Tomorrow is the Lu family’s Lu Xingkong’s birthday. That boy has a close relations.h.i.+p with the Lu family, he will certainly attend the birthday banquet held by the Lu family. I will challenge this boy on behalf of Old immortal then?”
“Exactly.” The old man said quietly.
Once again casting a glance over at Mu Yubai in the spiritual coffin, his figure grew lighter until he disappeared again in that puddle of blue water.
Chapter 408: Taishu Yongsheng
“Get out of my way——”
“What right do you have to stop me? I want to see my brother, why are you stopping me?”
“Step aside, I know my brother is in there——get out of my way——”
Li Muyang was asleep when he heard a sharp noises and a clamour outside.
Li Muyang opened his eyes and sat up, shouting to the outside, “Come.”
Jing’er trotted over, smiling, “Young Master, you’re awake? Would you like a drink of water?”
Li Muyang nodded and asked. “What is happening outside?”
“It’s Miss s.h.i.+nian, she wants to come in to see you——” Jing’er replied as she brought over a cup of warm water. “Chuyao and Zhaihua said you’re sleeping and she won’t listen.”
Li Muyang smiled helplessly, “let her in.”
“But Young master, your health——”
“Don’t worry.” Li Muyang waved his hand. “Let her in. You guys can’t stop her.”
“Yes.” Jing’er turned around.
Very quickly, a gust of cool breeze came, and Li s.h.i.+nian charged in at lightning speed.
Seeing Li Muyang lying on the bed with a face paler than paper, Li s.h.i.+nian’s eyes immediately reddened. She fluttered over to hug Li Muyang’s arm, anxiously crying: “Brother, are you okay? Are you wounded? People out there say you defeated the G.o.d of sword of West wind——is that true? Did he injure you?”
Feeling the strong concern from Li s.h.i.+nian, Li Muyang gently patted the girl’s constantly trembling back and comforted in a soft voice. “I’m fine. I am completely fine. Just that my body is a little weak, so I need some rest.”
“Liar. If you’re fine then why are you hiding here? Why didn’t they let me in?” Li s.h.i.+nian naturally did not believe in Li Muyang’s explanation. “Big brother, you really fought against the Sword G.o.d of West wind? He really didn’t injure you? Is there——is there something that you’re hiding from me?”
Li Muyang gently sighed, wiping the tears off Li s.h.i.+nian’s cheeks with his finger. “I’m fine. I’m really fine. I did defeat the Sword G.o.d of West Wind, and he didn’t injure me. The reason I am resting here is because I didn’t want Mother and Father or you to worry——Does Mother and Father know about this matter?”
“Father is still on duty in Plum Garden, I don’t know whether he knows. Mother is busy at home making clothes for you. She does not know about the battle between you and the Sword G.o.d of West Wind for now. I only heard it from Lu Tianyu.”
“Lu Tianyu?” Li Muyang frowned.
In the courtyard, a little chubby boy was creeping closer to the window.
“Young master Tianyu.” Jing’er bowed to Lu Tianyu and greeted out loud as a ‘signal’ to Li Muyang.
“Shhh!” Lu Tianyu hurriedly hushed Jing’er. “No need to bow, no need to bow.”
Li s.h.i.+nian dabbed away the tears at the corner of her eyes, before she yelled, “Lu Tianyu, what are you doing suspiciously outside?”
Lu Tianyu knew he couldn’t hide, fiercely shot a glare at Jing’er as he shook his snow-coated cloak and went in. 。
Lu Tianyu respectfully greeted Li s.h.i.+nian. “Pays respect to Sister s.h.i.+nian.”
And then he stared at Li Muyang in total awe. “You really defeated the G.o.d of Sword of West Wind?”
Li Muyang looked at the little chubby boy with a dissatisfied look, “So what?”
“So awesome.” There were as though sparks flying off Lu Tianyu’s eyes. “Did you know? You are now the hero of the capital. Everyone is talking about how you severely wounded the G.o.d of sword of West wind, also someone has given you a nickname——”
“The sun of the Kingdom.” Lu Tianyu grinned. “Awesome right? The Sun of the Kingdom, they say you are the West wind kingdom’s sun, the future of the Kingdom.”
Li Muyang knitted his brows more tightly, asking: “Who gave this nickname?”
“I don’t know.” Lu Tianyu shook his head. “I don’t know who made up this name, but everyone think this nickname is very good. So they called you that. Think about it, you could injure even the Sword G.o.d of West Wind, you certainly must be the strongest among the younger generations of Tiandu——no, you’re one of the top masters of the entire capital. Apart from a handful of people, n.o.body can beat you.”
“Brother, is there something wrong?” Li s.h.i.+nian noticed the ruminative expression on Li Muyang’s face.
“They call me the sun of the Kingdom, but the Lu family’s Lu Qiji, the Cui family’s Cui Xiaoxin, and the Song family’s Song Chenxi, and also you——are called the Four bright moons of the kingdom.” “
“What’s wrong with that?” Li s.h.i.+nian asked in response.
But as soon as she said these words, she instantly understood the meaning contained within this nickname.
Li s.h.i.+nian’s beautiful face reddened with rage. Clenching her fists tight, she uttered fiercely: “They’re praising you in a way that puts you at a disadvantage. They want you to fail due to excessive praise.”
“Yes,” Li Muyang gave a wry smile, “I am afraid that the Cui family and the Song family will extremely hate me, and those Gongzi and young masters that like Cui Xiaoxin and the Song family’s Song Chenxi will hate my guts——How is that a praise? It clearly is trying to push me into the fire pit.”
“Brother, then what will you do?” Li s.h.i.+nian looked full of worry. “Will they bring trouble to you?”
“The trouble certainly won’t leave.” Li Muyang said. His eyes were piercing cold as he continued, “however, even the Sword G.o.d of West Wind has been defeated by me, I would like to see who naively dares to come up to challenge me——”
Li s.h.i.+nian pumped an encouraging fist in Li Muyang’s direction. “Big brother, you’re the best. I support you.”
“Big brother, you’re the best, I also support you.” Lu Tianyu also looked full of excitement, clenching his small chubby fist.
Li Muyang swept a glance over him. “Young Master Lu don’t call me that, I can’t bear the responsibility. If heard by outsiders, there will be gossip.”“
Lu Tianyu casted an upset look at Li s.h.i.+nian. “Big sister——”
“Listen to my big brother.” Li s.h.i.+nian rolled her eyes, “If he won’t let you call him big brother, then you shouldn’t call him big brother.”
“Yes. Big sister s.h.i.+nian.” Lu Tianyu’s eyes reddened, looking pitiful.
Li s.h.i.+nian didn’t have the heart to do this. “Brother, why don’t you let him call you Big brother? It’s just a name, you’re not going to lose a piece of flesh from it?”
Li Muyang actually did not like Lu Tianyu. He felt that under the little chubby boy’s honest appearance there were evil intentions being concealed.
However, since Li s.h.i.+nian had interceded for him, Li Muyang also didn’t have the heart to disappoint his precious little sister. Nodding, he sighed, “fine, but don’t call me that in front of other people.”
“Thank you, Big brother Muyang. Big brother, please accept a bow from little brother.” Lu Tianyu respectfully bend his body respectfully and then straightened up his back and said, “Big brother Muyang, how did you defeat the G.o.d of Sword of West Wind?”
“I just beat him like that.”
“Can you teach me?” Lu Tianyu looked at him expectantly. “I also want to defeat the G.o.d of Sword of Tiandu once.”
“——” Li Muyang held back again and again, and finally couldn’t help but say to Li s.h.i.+nian: “Throw him out for me.”
Starry Sky Academy.
At the foot of Broken Mountain was a man covered in dust.
His hair was as messy as straw, his eyes fierce as a beast.
The clothes on him had already lost its original colour, strands of silk were flapping in the wind and a sudden gust of wind tore of the corners of his robe.
The man lifted his head and gazed up at the towering mountain, his eyes reddening, and tears filled his eye.
His lips were moving as though he wanted to say something, but he could not say a word.
Then, his figure spread out, both feet lifted off the ground, charging up the cliff of Broken Mountain.
A sharp and clear cry of a crane pierced the sky, coming from the distance.
Very soon, there was an enormous shadow descending from the sky, speeding toward the savage flying in midair.
The white crane flapped its wings, and a mighty gale frantically rolled towards the strange person.
The wind was rising, clouds scudding across and the sky and ground changed colour.
From the mountain top, a number of tree stumps and tremendous boulders came down towards the savage’s body.
Savage threw his head back and roared, and then slammed a punch towards the rocks and the huge crane.
Startled, the crane swooped up again, entering straight beyond the topmost clouds.
When it appeared, there was a beautiful youngster dressed in a Starry cloud robe standing atop the crane’s back.
The young man’s brows were knitted together, and it seemed that he did not like the ragged man.
He fumbled out a handkerchief from his bosom, and gracefully covered his nose, unwilling to sniff the air around.
“Who are you? Dare break into my divine mountain, hurt me Little white.” Xie Wuyou’s voice was incomparably cold, and with undisguised contempt for that man.
He was a neat freak who disliked dirty things and ugly humans.
He raised cranes because cranes were beautiful, and the posture when riding a crane was more leisurely and elegant. Would it be as showy and graceful as riding an ox or dog?
The man was equally discontent with Xie Wuyou. His blood-red eyes were garing ruthlessly at Xie Wuyou as he said in a hoa.r.s.e voice. “When did the Starry Sky Academy judge by appearance?”
Xie Wuyou remained calm, indifferent towards the man’s accusations. “It is not that Starry Sky Academy judge by appearance, but I, Xie Wuyou judge by appearance. Tell me, who are you, and what are you doing here?”
The man almost choked to death from Xie Wuyou’s answer. He clenched his fists, uttering fiercely: “The illusion of water, the abandoned student of Starry Sky. Is Taishu Yongsheng still alive?”
Xie Wuyou’s face darkened, his eyes filled with murderous intent.
Taishu Yongsheng, the dean of Starry Sky.
Ever since starting school, Xie Wuyou had never seen anyone who dared to call out his actual name.
