The sudden voice carried a calm tone, but it still created ripples among the intense ongoing battles. Zhou Haoyu froze slightly when he heard the words, but he quickly readjusted his expression. He withdrew his strength and said, “Hehe, this is the first time I, Zhou Haoyu, have faced such disrespect. Do you have the guts to step on the stage?”
Fury bubbled in his heart, and he wanted to teach the speaker a lesson. At the very least, he would make sure that the person left the stage on a stretcher. When she heard the voice, Yu Caidie s.h.i.+vered slightly and looked toward where the voice had come from.
Not far away, a young man was walking over. He was akin to a star amid the night sky, a boundlessly fascinating person that would suck in the attention of all who looked at him.
Unfortunately, the picture was spoiled by a hunchbacked old man and an extremely ugly middle-aged man walking alongside him. The two had such terrible appearances that they gave one the urge to throw up just by being seen.
“Wooo, boss, you’re finally here. Do you know that I was on the verge of entering the secret s.p.a.ce to search for you? Even if you were kidnapped by some female ghosts, I would still give my life to save you,” said Xia Liuhui shamelessly as he threw himself at Xiang Shaoyun.
However, a different figure arrived beside Xiang Shaoyun before him. That figure was none other than Money.
He was currently in the form of a tiny snake, and he directly embedded himself onto Xiang Shaoyun’s arm. There, he complained, “Boss, the Celestial Horned Dragonsnake’s horn I found was s.n.a.t.c.hed away from me. You need to get it back for me!”
“Um. Don’t worry. n.o.body will be able to take what is rightfully yours,” said Xiang Shaoyun. He looked at Xia Liuhui and said, “Stay put for now. I need to teach some smarta.s.s a lesson first.”
He then stepped forth, walking on empty air like he was taking a stroll in a park, emanating boundless grace doing so.
Some of the women started exclaiming in excitement, “He is so good-looking!”
After going through the Limit Stimulation Technique’s tempering, Xiang Shaoyun’s entire body was cleansed. He was already good-looking before, but he now looked even more flawless. Even a woman as exceptional as Yu Caidie was momentarily dazed looking at him, not to mention the other women.
“The overlord seems to look even more extraordinary now,” muttered Han Chenfei as she looked at Xiang Shaoyun tenderly.
Looking at Xiang Shaoyun stepping onto the stage, Zhou Haoyu’s gaze turned sharp. A thick hostility was radiating from his eyes as he said, “Lord guardian’s disciple? I wonder if you have the strength to back your confidence.”
Xiang Shaoyun completely ignored him and looked at Yu Caidie as he said, “Womenfolk have no business here. Go down.”
His words created a ma.s.sive uproar among the disciples. Yu Caidie was their G.o.ddess, and Xiang Shaoyun’s use of such a tone of voice against her was nothing but an insult.
“Kid, get off the stage. Who do you think you are? You dare speak like that to my G.o.ddess? I’ll skin you alive!”
“That’s right. Who does he think he is? Senior Zhou, beat him up!”
“That’s right. Beat him up so badly his mom won’t recognize him. He is too hateful. Does he really think the G.o.ddess will topple over him just because of that pretty face he has? He must be dreaming!”
“Don’t hold back, Senior Brother Zhou! Beat him down! You have our support!”
The many disciples grew restless, wis.h.i.+ng they could teach Xiang Shaoyun a lesson on Zhou Haoyu’s behalf.
What Yu Caidie did next shattered all their hearts. A gentle smile formed on her face as she said, “Um. Make sure you win. I’ll be waiting for you to be the first of the Four Blazing Suns.”
She then gently drifted off the stage.
Xia Liuhui exclaimed in admiration, “Worthy of being my boss! He is almost half as amazing as me!”
The moment those words left his mouth, numerous rocks were thrown his way. The people around him were getting tired of him.
“Kid, you have successfully infuriated me. I only need one move to make you leave on a stretcher,” said Zhou Haoyu, whose tone of voice abruptly calmed considerably.
Inwardly, he was burning with rage. He wished for nothing more than to tear Xiang Shaoyun into pieces. It hadn’t been easy for him to finally find a woman he liked, but it turned out the woman was already taken. He found it hard to accept, and he wanted to s.n.a.t.c.h the perfect woman from him.
“I’ll return the same words to you,” said Xiang Shaoyun confidently.
In the past, he had always been several stages lower than his opponents in terms of cultivation. Now that he was at the peak of Dragon Ascension Realm and had completely formed his draconic aura, he had enough confidence to not fear anyone. This was the type of confidence the strong would have.
“Take my strongest attack,” said Zhou Haoyu as he once again activated his Nine Revolution Exploding Star Technique. Nine stars appeared in the sky and descended upon Xiang Shaoyun, crus.h.i.+ng him with a suffocating sensation.
How many of his peers could withstand such an attack? Zhou Haoyu did not think that the young man before him would be able to withstand his attack. The other disciples thought the same.
“You will be the first step toward completing my master’s request. I, Xiang Shaoyun, shall be reserving the first position for myself,” declared Xiang Shaoyun strongly as he made his move as well.
Unrivaled Sky Crus.h.i.+ng Punch!
Xiang Shaoyun’s battle intent surged, and a torrential fist intent flooded out. A terrifying golden radiance burst out, and an overbearing fist manifested as though a friend G.o.d had personally launched a punch at the descending stars.
The tyrannical fist carried with it a thick vicious gold energy and blasted the nine stars into pieces. The gold energy proceeded to rush toward Zhou Haoyu, giving him a sensation that he was facing something unblockable. His face fell as he tried his best to erect his defenses, but he found that he couldn’t even utilize any of his strength at the moment. The fist’s shockwave struck him and sent him flying like an artillery sh.e.l.l. Blood sprayed everywhere.
Everyone was stupefied. Who would have guessed that Zhou Haoyu, who had won 23 consecutive battles, would be sent flying in a single move? It was unbelievable.
“Unrivaled Sky Crus.h.i.+ng Punch?” Zhan Wushuang exclaimed with his eyes narrowed. The others might not recognize this fist technique, but how could he not recognize it? That was the fist technique he relied on, and he found it hard to accept the fact that Xiang Shaoyun was now using the same technique.
“Worthy of being my boss! He defeated that kid with one punch! If it was me, I would have probably needed two punches to do the same,” said Xia Liuhui shamelessly.
“How did this fellow become so terrifying?” muttered Ouyang Chuanqi with a helpless smile. His confidence had been dealt a great blow when he had witnessed Xiang Shaoyun’s new strength.
