Chapter 620: Sima Clan’s Shamelessness




Ao Jiao flew out from the Lunar Shadow Saber and looked at the Taiji Yinyang Flame Diagram in front of Xiao Chen. She said interestedly, “My current strength is equal to a peak Martial Monarch. How much of my strength do you want me to use?”

Xiao Chen replied, “Use half first.”

Peak Martial Monarch, this was a cultivator who had refined their Quintessence to the limit. Xiao Chen could not afford to look down on them or be careless around them.

The moment Xiao Chen spoke, Ao Jiao attacked. Her exquisite figure flashed in the air and then she punched the Taiji Yinyang Flame Diagram.

“Bang!”

The Taiji Yinyang Flame Diagram exploded out in light. A surging shock wave sent strong winds blowing in all directions. Amidst the light, Ao Jiao somersaulted three times before she could dissipate the rebound.

Seeing the Yinyang, four divisions, and eight trigrams around the bright Taiji Yinyang Flame Diagram, Ao Jiao could not help a look of shock in her eyes. Her playful attitude now diminished significantly.

Xiao Chen felt a slight headache. After enduring Ao Jiao’s attack at half her strength, only half of his Mental Energy remained in his sea of consciousness.

Clenching his teeth, Xiao Chen said with a serious expression, “Try your full power!”

Ao Jiao nodded, and her aura soared. Despite her petite figure, she exuded a vast and majestic air.

This time, Xiao Chen’s eyes failed to capture Ao Jiao’s movements. Then, her attack struck the Taiji Yinyang Flame Diagram.

“Boom!”

The Taiji Yinyang Flame Diagram exploded out in light. Then, the Yinyang, four divisions, and eight trigrams shattered. Blood leaked out of Xiao Chen’s mouth as he received the shock wave of the punch. He took eight steps back before he could stabilize himself.

Xiao Chen’s blood and Qi surged, his internal organs shaken. However, he smiled joyfully. He had succeeded.

Peak Martial Monarch, only a half-step away from Martial Sage, was the cultivation of the Heavenly Saber Pavilion’s Shen Manjun. Even though Xiao Chen had just advanced to Martial Monarch, he could withstand the full-power attack of a peak Martial Monarch and only receive minor injuries. If others heard of this, no one would believe it.

Ao Jiao, who was in the air, had an unsightly expression. The instant the Taiji Yinyang Flame Diagram exploded, the force from the rebound doubled. It was equal to her suffering from an attack that was twice as strong as what she sent out.

Xiao Chen quickly rushed over and asked, “Are you alright?”

Ao Jiao regulated her energies for a while before smiling. “I’m fine. If you suffered from an attack two times stronger than that, you would surely die. However, the endurance of a peak Martial Monarch is greater than you imagine.

“So, if you meet a peak Martial Monarch, even if the other party is severely injured, do not let your guard down.”

Xiao Chen could use this Taiji Yinyang Flame Diagram for offense or defense; he could advance or retreat. He finally had a trump card unique to him since it was not a Martial Technique originating from the Azure Dragon, the Bai Clan’s Four Season Saber Technique, or the various secret techniques of the Battle Sage Origins.

In the three thousand great realms, only Xiao Chen knew the Taiji Yinyang Flame Diagram. In the future, if he could gather the Solar True Flame together with the Lunar True Flame, this move was sure to shake the Kunlun Realm.

After resting on the small island for a few more days, Xiao Chen started his return journey, rushing back to the Heavenly Saber Pavilion.

Along the way, Xiao Chen still needed to use the scarlet throne. If Xiao Chen used Quintessence to return, his speed would be faster than the scarlet throne.

However, he would have to exhaust his Quintessence. He would not expend anything if he used the scarlet throne, so it was very suitable for traveling.

Five days later, the Lingyun Mountain Range appeared in Xiao Chen’s vision. When he landed at the foot of the mountain, the Heavenly Saber Pavilion disciples standing guard recognized him immediately.

“Senior Brother Xiao Chen, you are finally back! The First Elder is looking everywhere for you.” When the two disciples saw Xiao Chen, they immediately informed him with great respect that the First Elder sought him.

By now, Xiao Chen had already become a legendary figure at the Heavenly Saber Pavilion. The rumors flying about even made him out to be someone who would surpass the Thunder Emperor.

Previously, Xiao Chen wanted to dispel these rumors. However, certain things would just become more ridiculous as they spread further. So he could only smile helplessly.

“Did the First Elder say why he was looking for me?” Under normal circumstances, the First Elder would never look for Xiao Chen so urgently.

The two disciples shook their heads. “I’m not sure. You best go to the main hall at the Heaven Viewing Platform. I heard someone incredible came.”

Xiao Chen nodded his head and stopped hesitating. He flew directly to the Heaven Viewing Platform. He stood on top of the image of an Azure Dragon, moving up and down in the air and vanishing from the field of vision of the two disciples guarding the entrance.

As the two disciples watched Xiao Chen leave, envious looks flashed in their eyes. “Senior Brother Xiao Chen is becoming more and more powerful. His aura now felt almost the same as some of those Supreme Elders.”

“There is nothing to envy. When we cultivate in the Heavenly Saber Pavilion, some of Senior Brother Xiao Chen’s King Dragon True Dragon Luck will rub off on us. While we can’t say that we will reach Senior Brother’s level someday, there is still no doubt that we will surpass others eventually.”

“That’s right, the King Grade True Dragon’s Luck. Right now, so many people are racking their brains on how to enter our Heavenly Saber Pavilion.”

After a few breaths, Xiao Chen landed outside the main hall and walked in.

When he looked around, he immediately discovered something wrong with the atmosphere. All the Martial Monarch Supreme Elders of the Heavenly Saber Pavilion were present.

Even Shen Manjun, who did not bother herself with mundane affairs, was sitting in one of the chairs. Everyone had cautious expressions as they looked at a middle-aged man seated in the hall.

That purple-robed man had an unfathomable aura. With a quick glance, it was easy to tell that he was stronger than Shen Manjun; he was a Martial Sage expert.

“Xiao Chen, you have returned!” When Jiang Chi saw Xiao Chen, he quickly got up to welcome him.

When Jiang Chi felt Xiao Chen’s aura, he revealed a joyful smile. The other Supreme Elders all revealed faint smiles as well. However, a trace of worry still lingered on their faces.

Xiao Chen nodded and said, “First Elder, why are you looking for me so urgently?”

Jiang Chi looked carefully at the purple-robed man before saying, “That is the Clan Head of the Great Jin Nation’s Sima Clan, Sima Hong. He brought a challenge letter for you on behalf of Sima Lingxuan.”

Xiao Chen smiled faintly and said, “I will accept the challenge letter. Just accept all challenges as they come along.”

Sima Hong stood up and looked at Xiao Chen. An overwhelming pressure bore down on Xiao Chen like a mountain pressing down. He smiled faintly and said, “Not only do you have to accept this challenge letter, but I also want you to lose to Lingxuan.

“Remember, you have to lose. Otherwise, this Heavenly Saber Pavilion will be plunged into disaster as a result of your decision, suffering the rage of a Martial Sage.”

The aura of a Martial Sage bore down heavily on Xiao Chen. It was like a massive mountain pressing on his back, demanding he bow down and yield.

Xiao Chen clenched his teeth and remained silent. He used the aura that was a gift of the King Grade True Dragon to resist this Martial Sage’s aura.

Cracks appeared on the floor under Xiao Chen’s feet, spreading out in all directions in a complicated spiderweb pattern.

“Bang! Bang! Bang!”

Martial Sages already comprehended the natural law. When Sima Hong pressed down with his aura, it was equal to a formless attack.

The floor of the great hall shattered with a ‘rumble.’ Broken rocks flew into the air and smashed against the ceiling. A surging aura spread out.

Aside from Shen Manjun, the other Martial Monarch Supreme Elders of the Heavenly Saber Pavilion were all forced back several steps.

Never conceding, never bowing down!

Blood leaked out of the corner of Xiao Chen’s lips. He refused to bow down as he stared at Sima Hong. At this moment, his satisfaction at advancing to Martial Monarch vanished without a trace.

It turned out that the so-called Martial Monarch was nothing before a Martial Sage. Even though the other party was clearly just an early Inferior Grade Martial Sage, Xiao Chen already found it hard to endure his aura.

Xiao Chen, never agree to this old thing. He is so old already, and yet he is so shameless. If you lose a match with someone from the same generation, your King Grade True Dragon’s Luck will become only an ordinary true dragon’s Luck.

Ao Jiao said in rage from the Lunar Shadow Saber, Worst-case scenario, I will fight it out with him. He is just an early Inferior Grade Martial Sage.

Xiao Chen stopped Ao Jiao. Don’t be rash. I have a way to deal with him.

“Not bad, even under pressure from me, you still can hold up for so long.” Sima Hong laughed loudly and withdrew his aura. “You better think carefully whether you will agree or not.”

The strength that Sima Hong displayed horrified all the Heavenly Saber Pavilion elders around him. Even with all the Martial Monarchs here working together, they would not be a match for him. It would even be hard for them to give him a decent fight.

The pressure on Xiao Chen declined significantly. However, he did not relax in his heart. He said, “I will accept the challenge letter. However, I will not lose on purpose!”

Sima Hong smiled coldly and tossed out a spatial ring. “Ten days from now, Sima Lingxuan will come here. There are ten thousand Superior Grade Spirit Stones in there.

“I will not let you lose for nothing; it is just an act. There will not be any loss. Furthermore, you will be able to gain a large sum of Superior Grade Spirit Stones. I believe you will change your mind.”

After speaking, Sima Hong laughed loudly and left the great hall, taking large strides.

Shen Manjun walked over and said, “Xiao Chen, don’t worry. The Heavenly Saber Pavilion will never make things difficult for you. Just one Martial Sage will not scare us.”

Actually, Shen Manjun did not feel very confident when saying this. Currently, the Heavenly Saber Pavilion did not have any Martial Sages. If they really offended Sima Hong, the words that he said earlier would no doubt not simply be a bluff.

Wiping the blood from his lips, Xiao Chen said softly, “There is no need for Senior to say so. Xiao Chen is rooted in Qingyun Peak. Naturally, I will not sit here and let others threaten the Heavenly Saber Pavillion like this.

“I will write a letter to the Supreme Sky Sect. In at most seven days, they will definitely send a Martial Sage to protect us. At that time, this Sima Hong would not dare do anything.”

Because the Noble Clans had Martial Emperors for their ancestors, the quality of their geniuses was better than those of the ten great sects, due to their bloodline. However, in terms of overall strength, they were no match for the ten great sects.

Furthermore, behind the Supreme Sky Sect was its even stronger main sect in the Kunlun Realm. With the Supreme Sky Sect backing him, the Sima Clan would not dare try anything.

When the other Supreme Elders heard Xiao Chen say that, they all heaved a sigh of relief. The worry on their faces vanished.

When Xiao Chen saw this, he did not say anything. Sima Hong had clearly displayed his power. It would be pointless even if they made a move to try and help Xiao Chen.

The strong were respected; strength was great. Since ancient times, there was no exception of this rule. Xiao Chen already felt very satisfied with these elders not making things difficult for him even under Sima Hong’s pressure.

Qingyun Peak, Liu Ruyue’s Courtyard:

Green smoke pervaded the place as Xiao Chen and Liu Ruyue sat at a tea table and drank tea.

As the Peak Master of Qingyun Peak, she already knew everything that happened in the main hall. Worry filled her face.
