“Xue Nai!” Duan Ling Tian’s face went pale when faced with such a dangerous scene, and he couldn’t help but exclaim.
He entirely didn’t have the time to think why King Yong would have moved everyone away, yet didn’t move Han Xue Nai.
In the distance, Han Xue Nai’s expression remained unchanged when faced with the Three-Eyed Flame Tiger that seemed to have transformed into a ball of flames that pounced towards her.
At this moment, in the sky above the Three-Eyed Flame Tiger that swiftly moved forward, 12 ancient horned dragon silhouettes swept out to reveal his cultivation.
Ninth level of the Void Prying Stage!
Not only that, along with the pulsating of the Origin Energy on the Three-Eyed Flame Tiger’s body, a fiery red energy that was almost material flawlessly combined with his Origin energy, and it seemed like burning flames.
Meanwhile another eight ancient horned dragon silhouettes appeared in the sky.
“Eighth level Fire Concept!” Duan Ling Tian’s pupils constricted.
Besides being a ninth level Void Prying Stage demon beast, this Three-Eyed Flame Tiger had also comprehended eighth level Fire Concept!
“Roar!!” The Three-Eyed Flame Tiger pounced towards Han Xue Nai, and when its body that was like an enormous mountain was compared with Han Xue Nai’s body, they were simply like two opposites.
When compared, the difference between Han Xue Nai and the Three-Eyed Flame Tiger was like the difference between an ant and human.
“King Yong wouldn’t have intentionally not saved her, right?” At this moment, similar thoughts had emerged in the hearts of all the young geniuses including Duan Ling Tian.
King Yong’s actions earlier of only saving them yet not saving the young girl was something that they were unable to wrap their heads around, whereas, the following scene caused Duan Ling Tian to be completely stunned. “This…”
Now, it wasn’t only Duan Ling Tian, everyone else besides King Yong had their eyes wide open with dumbstruck expressions.
What have I seen?!
Han Xue Nai in the distance raised her hand unhurriedly when facing the Three-Eyed Flame Tiger that carried along the strength of 20 ancient horned dragons.
Subsequently, every present clearly saw Han Xue Nai lightly leap up, then her white wrist that was like white jade slowly stretched out from beneath her sleeve, and it moved to intercept the Three-Eyed Flame Tiger that approached menacingly.
“Roar!!” The Three-Eyed Flame Tiger let out a loud roar, and then it opened up its blood mouth, intending to swallow Han Xue Nai into its belly.
Right at this moment, Han Xue Nai made another move.
Her graceful figure dangerously avoided the Three-Eyed Flame Tiger’s bloody mouth.
Subsequently, she arrived between the brows of the flame tiger.
Her delicate hand formed a palm that pressed down towards the spot between the flame tiger’s brows.
Right at this moment, Origin Energy appeared in the center of Han Xue Nai’s palm before condensing into a revolving vortex that instantly caused gusts of strong winds to sweep out in all directions.
Instantly, Duan Ling Tian and the others felt a wave of violent winds assault them, and it blew to the point that they were barely able to stand firmly on the spot in midair with Origin Energy protecting their bodies, whereas, the clothed on their bodies fluttered in the wind to the point of emitting flapping sounds.
“What strong Origin Energy!” Duan Ling Tian’s pupils couldn’t help but constrict, and he felt extremely shocked in his heart.
Such strong Origin Energy was obviously already above the Void Initiation Stage!
Void Interpretation Stage?
Duan Ling Tian’s heart jerked, and at the same time, he couldn’t help but raise his head while intending to clearly see the total amount of ancient horned dragon silhouettes that had condensed into form above Han Xue Nai.
But unfortunately, in the next moment, waves of coldness emerged from the violent winds, and it caused him to be unable to help but close his eyes.
When Duan Ling Tian squinted his eyes and looked over with difficulty, he instead saw that this coldness had come from the Origin Energy vortex that spun rapidly on Han Xue Nai’s hand.
Presently, strands of extremely terrifying icy cold aura were stretching out from those Origin Energy vortexes, and the air around Han Xue Nai had already been frozen to the point it almost stopped moving.
“Big guy, I know you Three-Eyed Flame Tigers hate water and ice the most… I’ll let you try the feeling of being frozen into a popsicle.” Suddenly, Han Xue Nai spoke out, and her voice that was moving like the sound of an oriole instead caused others to feel a slight chill run down their spines at this moment.
Frozen into a popsicle?
Right when Duan Ling Tian’s heart jerked, Han Xue Nai’s palm descended down to slap onto the spot between the Three-Eyed Flame Tiger’s brows.
Instantly, a terrifying gale swept out, and within it was an aura that was icy cold to the extreme mixed within it, whereas, the clouds and mist in the horizon had completely stopped moving at this moment.
They were completely frozen by the icy cold aura.
Duan Ling Tian and the others were utterly unable to clearly see how many ancient horned dragon silhouettes had appeared atop Han Xue Nai.
When these clouds and mist once again started moving, the figures of Han Xue Nai and the Three-Eyed Flame Tiger once again appeared before the eyes of everyone present.
But the scene before them caused everyone including King Yong to be dumbstruck.
“It really became a popsicle…” Duan Ling Tian muttered as he looked ahead.
Within Duan Ling Tian’s field of vision, the faraway Three-Eyed Flame Tiger had completely stopped on the spot.
Presently, there was a layer of thick icy that froze the Three-Eyed Flame Tiger within it, causing it to become a unique icy sculpture, whereas within the ice sculpture, the Origin Energy on the Three-Eyed Flame Tiger’s body could vaguely be seen to be gradually dispersing.
As for the eight level Fire Concept in the Three-Eyed Flame Tiger’s Origin Energy, it had been blasted to the point nothing remained since long ago.
Now, the Three-Eyed Flame Tiger had completely stiffened in midair, and its body started to descend slowly.
Right at this moment, a swift figure instantly arrived below the Three-Eyed Flame Tiger and help it up to prevent the Three-Eyed Flame Tiger from falling down.
Otherwise, with the current height the Three-Eyed Flame Tiger was at, then once it fell down, it would surely transform into countless pieces along with the ice that froze it.
The one that saved the Three-Eyed Flame Tiger was naturally King Yong.
Presently, King Yong was looking at the yellow clothed young girl in the distance with a bitter smile on his face.
The young girl that looked harmless instead seemed no different to a devil in King Yong’s eyes. “Xue… Young Miss Xue Nai, this Three-Eyed Flame Tiger didn’t mean to oppose you, I hope that you can show mercy.” King Yong’s tone contained slightly helplessness mixed within.
“Hmph!” Han Xue Nai raised her head and glanced indifferently at the Three-Eyed Flame Tiger that was frozen, and then she said indifferently, “Who asked him to want to eat me… Uncle Red Mole, if you want to save him, feel free to save him from the ice, I won’t stop you.” As she finished speaking, a wisp of a sly smile appeared in Han Xue Nai’s eyes.
It was as if there was some sort of trickery to it.
King Yong’s expression sank, and he sighed. “Young Miss Xue Nai, please don’t joke… You froze it with your Origin Energy combined with Ice Concept, and it has already caused him to fuse into one with the ice. If I were to forcefully do something to the ice, then he would die along with it.”
Han Xue Nai’s beautiful face froze, and she spoke with slight surprise. “Uncle Red Mole, I never expected that you know this as well… Uncle Red Mole, where did you find out about this? According to my knowledge, Ice Concept isn’t common.”
When he saw Han Xue Nai intentionally changing the topic, King Yong was completely helpless, and he glanced over to the distant violet clothed young man with a gaze that sought for help and said via voice transmission, “Duan Ling Tian, please ask this Young Miss Xue Nai to spare this Three-Eyed Flame Tiger… This Three-Eyed Flamed Tiger is our Darkstone Imperial Kingdom’s Imperial Family’s Empire Guarding Demon Beast, and it had extraordinary meaning to our Darkstone Empire.”
“Young Miss Xue Nai’s Ice Concept is truly too strong… With the Three-Eyed Flame Tiger’s strength, it would be at most half an hour before it would be dead for sure!” As he finished speaking, King Yong’s voice was slightly trembling.
Duan Ling Tian gasped.
He never imagined that Xue Nai had actually comprehended such a terrifying concept.
Ice Concept could be said to be the upgraded version of Water Concept, and it stood above the numerous Concepts of nature.
Since ancient times, there was a saying that had been passed down: ‘Ice is made of water, yet it’s colder than water.’
This was the same principle behind a pupil outdoing the master.
“Xue Nai…” Duan Ling Tian looked at Han Xue Nai.
“Big Brother Ling Tian, don’t worry.” Before Duan Ling Tian could finish speaking, Han Xue Nai interrupted Duan Ling Tian’s words as she’d obviously guessed what Duan Ling Tian wanted to say.
The slyness in the depths of her beautiful eyes grew even denser. “I won’t kill this big guy… Wasn’t he unconvinced earlier? Then I’ll freeze him for 15 minutes, and allow him to sober up properly. Let’s see if he dares be unconvinced again!” Her tone contained slight childishness.
Duan Ling Tian’s face froze when he heard this, and then he glanced at the Three-Eyed Flame Tiger that had been frozen into a popsicle with pity.
This big fellow just had to go offend this little devil.
He was simple looking to suffer!
But Duan Ling Tian’s heart was still filled with shock.
Never had he imagined that Xue Nai’s strength was actually so terrifying.
Earlier, because the clouds and mist in the horizon had been frozen by Xue Nai’s Ice Concept, so Duan Ling Tian and the others weren’t able to see how many ancient horned dragon silhouettes had been condensed into form by the energy of heaven and earth.
But even then, Duan Ling Tian was still able to confirm that Xue Nai’s strength was surely at the Void Interpretation Stage or above.
Moreover, she wasn’t an ordinary Void Interpretation Stage martial artist.
This was something that could be discerned from the attitude King Yong assumed when facing Xue Nai.
At the beginning, he’d perceived that King Yong was extremely afraid of Xue Nai.
At that time, he thought that Xue Nai had spoke of her background, and that’s what caused King Yong to be like that.
Now it would seem that the facts weren’t like that.
“Perhaps when Xue Nai stretched out her hand to pay King Yong’s shoulder before the Darkstone Empire’s Imperial Family’s treasure vault earlier, she’s revealed her terrifying strength to King Yong…” Duan Ling Tian thought in his heart as he guessed.
“Xue Nai wouldn’t really be an extremely old figure, right?” Duan Ling Tian glanced at Han Xue Nai, and he felt a chill run down his spine.
Of course, Duan Ling Tian only thought about it yet didn’t speak of it.
He didn’t want to be frozen into a popsicle like the Three-Eyed Flame Tiger.
Moreover, it was only Duan Ling Tian’s irresponsible wild guess.
If Xue Nai really was a figure like the ‘maiden of heavenly mountain,’ then how could she possible be willing to address a little kid like him as Big Brother?
All of his thoughts couldn’t hold its ground before the facts.
“Perhaps, it was because of certain reasons that Xue Nai’s appearance didn’t change in the slightest during these past few years.” Duan Ling Tian guessed in his heart.
“But, such a large popsicle is really rarely seen in the entire world…” When he returned to his senses, Duan Ling Tian sighed with emotion as he looked at the Three -Eyed Flame Tiger that was frozen into a popsicle.
“15 minutes?” King Yong had a bitter smile on his face as he looked at the Three-Eyed Flame Tiger above him.
Meanwhile, including the two old men behind King Yong, everyone looked at Han Xue Nai now with a gaze that was filled with terror and astonishment.
Never had they imagined that this harmless young girl that looked to be around 15 or 16 actually possessed such a terrifying cultivation.
Moreover, she was a little devil that they couldn’t afford to offend!
