Chapter 892: Brazen? Clever?
Translator: EndlessFantasy Translation Editor: EndlessFantasy Translation
Just as Duan Ling Tian was staring fixedly at Nangong Yi’s fist, the turquoise blue energy that was on the surface of Nangong Yi’s fist suddenly converged like they were being squeezed together.
Under the watchful eyes of the crowd, the turquoise blue energy around Nangong Yi’s fist suddenly compressed and wrapped around his fist.
Along with the convergence of his energy, Huang Daniu unreservedly continued releasing his energy. That sweeping energy that seemingly transformed into a khaki-colored divine dragon charged towards Nangong Yi as it swept away all the obstacles that were in the way.
“Senior Brother Yi!” At this instance, many of the Five Element Sect’s disciples had their hearts hoisted as they stared at Nangong Yi worriedly.
In their opinion, Nangong Yi looked like he was currently in a disadvantageous position.
“I-It’s okay… It’s okay.. E-Even if Senior Brother’s defeated, that Huang Daniu only won one-sidedly! After all, Senior Brother Yi did not use any of that Earth Energy at all!” Many of the Gold Peak disciples comforted themselves.
However, the Peak Masters of the Five Peaks in the Five Element Sect and the elders around them, including Duan Ling Tian, had a different thought from the disciples of the Five Element Sect.
As the saying went, the experts knew the rope while the amateurs just came along for the ride.
Although it might look like Nangong Yi had converged the power on his punch and let Huang Daniu take the upper hand, the fact was he was already preparing to launch the next attack.
Just as the group of Five Element Sect’s disciples broke into a cold sweat for Nangong Yi, and while Duan Ling Tian’s eyes were completely narrowed in focus, Nangong Yi began to make his move under the watchful eyes of the others.
He strode out, and his entire being charged towards Huang Daniu’s fist that contained a vast amount of energy. In the eyes of the others, this was no different from committing suicide.
“Senior Brother Yi!” When the Five Element Sect’s disciples saw that, many of them could not help but shout in shock.
At this moment, the turquoise blue energy on Nangong Yi’s fist that looked like it had transformed into a sort of viscous liquid once again followed his punch and charged towards Huang Daniu before exploding suddenly.
A terrifying energy boomed and burst out from Nangong Yi’s fist.
This scene, in the eyes of Duan Ling Tian, was no different from the bomb blast that he had experienced before on Earth during his past life.
After the energy on Nangong Yi’s fist exploded, all that was left in front of the spectators was a blue-colored sky canopy. It was as if half of the sky had been completely dyed blue.
At this moment, one could vaguely see that behind this turquoise blue sky canopy, two figures were clashing with each other.
After one of the figures that were medium-built in size leaned forward, he maintained a punching posture and remained motionless.
On the contrary, another figure that was big-sized was sent back flying like an arrow that was being shot out. At the same time, a few mouthfuls of blood spurted out as he continued to groan a few times.
Almost at the same time, an alarmingly loud noise resonated in the air. A vast hurricane swept over everywhere. Even the turquoise blue sky was blown away as well.
Nangong Yi was standing in the air in the distance, gracefully dapper in appearance.
As for Huang Daniu, he was standing farther in the distance and appeared to be in a wreck. After consuming a wound-curing medicinal pill, his terribly pale face finally eased up a little.
Huang Daniu took a deep breath as he looked towards Nangong Yi and exclaimed frankly, “You’re very strong! I, Huang Daniu, admit defeat.”
After he finished, instead of waiting for Nangong Yi’s response, he flew off and returned to stand beside Duan Ling Tian and the other Wood Peak members.
“Peak Master, Elder Yang, Elder Ke, I’m sorry for letting you down,” Huang Daniu apologized.
“Daniu, you’ve done very well!” Ke Zheng smiled.
Previously, when Huang Daniu had displayed his full power without any reservation, it had taken him by surprise as well.
It had never crossed his mind that Huang Daniu would have such a huge transformation in just one month.
“Daniu, w-when… did you enter the Sixth Level Void Interpretation? Not only that, you even comprehended the Six Level Intermediate Earth Concept as well!” Chen Wei stared at Huang Daniu, he was completely stunned.
At this moment, all he could think of was that this massive figure in front of him had suddenly become so unfamiliar, to the extent that he had to familiarized himself with him again.
“Hehe,” Huang Daniu chuckled without offering any explanation.
He could also see that, whether it was Ke Zheng or Chen Wei, they did not seem to know anything about the Origin Enhancing Fruit. Since it was like that, naturally he would not be the first one to spill the secret.
After all, the Origin Enhancing Fruit that he had consumed was originally intended for Chen Wei by the Peak Master of Wood Peak.
Who would know what Ke Zheng and Chen Wei’s reactions would be like after they found out about it.
“Not bad, not bad,” Qi Yu, the Peak Master of Wood Peak, smiled and nodded his head towards Huang Daniu. It was apparent that he was satisfied with Huang Daniu’s performance.
The moment Huang Daniu heard this, he was instantly flattered.
“Daniu, you really concealed it well. When exactly did you comprehend the Sixth Level Intermediate Earth Concept?” Duan Ling Tian took a deep look at Huang Daniu.
“Hehe… just a few days ago,” he chuckled as he replied.
“I admit defeat.” Suddenly, a soft voice entered Duan Ling Tian’s ears and returned him to his senses. He turned his head and looked towards the source of the voice.
In just a glance, he immediately saw the owner of the voice.
The strongest younger generation in Water Peak, she was also the strongest female disciple among the younger generation in the Five Element Sect.
After Huang Daniu’s battle with Nangong Yi, it was hers and Hu Fei’s turn next.
However, she had witnessed Hu Fei’s cultivation base of Seventh Level Void Interpretation before and knew very well that she was no match for him. Cleverly, she admitted her defeat.
Hu Fei advanced to the next round. The second match ended.
The other male disciple from the Earth Peak entered the next round without a fight.
The third round began.
Because Hu Fei, Tan Huan and the other male disciple from Earth Peak knew that they were no match for Nangong Yi, coupled with the fact that he had defeated Huang Daniu earlier on, he was immediately crowned as the temporary victor of the Battle of the Five Peaks.
For this reason, Huang Daniu decided to challenge the ranking position by challenging the male disciple of Earth Peak.
Since the other side had seen Huang Daniu’s strength earlier, he did not have any intention to battle it out with Huang Daniu. He immediately admitted defeat.
Now, only Huang Daniu and Hu Fei were left.
Before Hu Fei went up to battle, Huang Daniu turned into a flash of lightning under the stunned gazes of the crowd. In just a blink of an eye, he had already reached the other side of Gold Peak, close to the sheer cliffs.
When they saw Huang Daniu’s actions, apart from Duan Ling Tian and a few others, the rest were rendered speechless.
“D-Don’t you think this Huang Daniu is a little brazen?”
“I was still wondering if Huang Daniu will go close to the Gold Peak and borrow the Earth Energy when he’s going against Senior Brother Hu Fei… But, I can’t believe that he has already gone there before the match against Senior Brother Hu Fei even begins!”
“When he gets there, Huang Daniu’s strength would be 35 ancient horned dragons more than his usual strength… Even stronger than Senior Brother Hu when he exerts his full strength!”
“I wonder if Senior Brother Hu will take the initiative to go there and battle him or not.”
The Five Element Sect’s disciples who were present began to discuss this in a lively manner. Many people found Huang Daniu to be quite brazen, but equally as many people thought that he was smart too.
Hu Fei flew out and stood in the sky far away from Gold Peak. From a distance, he glared at Huang Daniu who was close to Gold Peak’s side. He mocked in a deep voice, “Huang Daniu, if you’re still a man, come here and fight with me!”
“Hu Fei!” The moment Huang Daniu heard his words, he let out a chuckle, “If you still acknowledge yourself as a human, then you come over here and battle it out with me… After all, you’re a martial artist who’s already at the Seventh Level Void Interpretation. Don’t tell me that you’re afraid of me who’s only at the Sixth Level Void Interpretation?”
A true and undisguised provocation!
However, Hu Fei was enraged. He was fully infuriated!
In just a blink, Hu Fei’s pair of eyes were immediately dyed as he glared at Huang Daniu from afar. If looks could kill, Huang Daniu would have died many times by now.
However, Hu Fei did not make any move at all. This was because he had no confidence in defeating Huang Daniu who had the help from Earth Energy.
He would not make his move if he had no confidence.
Otherwise, if he was defeated by Huang Daniu, he would definitely become the laughing stock of all Five Element Sect’s disciples. He would no longer be able to lift his head up in this Five Element Sect in the future.
For this reason, he did not dare to risk it this time!
The atmosphere of the scene instantly became kind of weird.
Huang Daniu hovered in the air near the Gold Peak while Hu Fei stood afar in the air from the Gold Peak in the sky. Both of them were standing and facing each other, but nobody made any move at all.
“Sect Leader!” At this moment, Cha Bai, the Peak Master of the Fire Peak, stepped out and looked at Guo Chong, the Sect Leader of the Five Element Sect, before asking in a deep tone, “Since that Huang Daniu dare move forward to battle it out with my disciple, then he ought to be announced as defeated in this match! Sect Leader, please make a decision!”
“Hurmph!” Before Guo Chong had the chance to speak, Qi Yu, the Peak Master of Wood Peak who was standing beside Duan Ling Tian, stepped out in the air and said in his cold voice, “Cha Bai, you’re as shameless as usual! You said that Huang Daniu does not dare to go fight with Hu Fei. Let me ask you, does Hu Fei dare to go near Huang Daniu for a fight?”
The moment the group of Five Element Sect’s disciples who were watching by the side heard Qi Yu’s question, all of them, other than Fire Peak’s disciples, nodded their heads one after another.
“That’s right! It’s true that Huang Daniu dare not leave Gold Peak’s side to battle it out with Senior Brother Hu Fei, but similarly, Senior Brother Hu Fei also dare move forward to meet Huang Daniu.”
“Although Huang Daniu’s kind of shameless in this match, I’ve to admit that he’s smart as well. He knows how to make use of his advantage.”
“If these two people really do not dare to make any move in this match, then calling it as a tie is the best outcome I suppose.”
The group of Five Element Sect’s disciples was discussing animatedly about it. Although it was extremely noisy, the comments still managed to make their way into the Peak Masters and the elders’ ear.
Cha Bai’s face turned glum instantly.
It had never crossed his mind that other than his own Fire Peak’s disciples, the other disciples from Gold, Water and Earth Peak would choose to stand by Qi Yu and support him.
However, he really did not want to see this battle ended up in a tie.
After all, once Hu Fei and Huang Daniu ended up in a tie, both of their rankings would be the same in the end. At that time, when the other representative from Wood Peak managed to defeat the other representative from Fire Peak, his Fire Peak would then be ranked below Wood Peak.
That was something he really did not want to see.
The other representative from Wood Peak was Duan Ling Tian, a young man who exuded a sense of mystery from every part of his body. Just the fact that Wood Peak kept him as their trump card and let him rest in the meantime was enough to prove that his strength was far above Huang Daniu’s.
It would most likely be very easy for Duan Ling Tian to defeat his other representative from Fire Peak. That disciple had just made a breakthrough to the Fifth Level Void Interpretation.
“Qi Yu, you can’t say it like that… Everyone here knows that any martial artist whose cultivation base has entered the Void would almost never fight against a person who has comprehended the Earth Concept on the ground,” Cha Bai stared at Qi Yu as he asked in his deep voice, “Am I wrong?”
“You’re right,” Qi Yu nodded.
Just as all the onlookers at the side, including Duan Ling Tian, were stunned, and a proud smile could be seen on Cha Bai’s face, Qi Yu opened his mouth once again.
