Chapter 660 – Scared Witless

All of the contempt that Ye Qingsheng and Ye Ziyi possessed morphed in stone cold fear. They were not idiots; even though the other party’s profound aura was only at the third level of the Emperor Profound Realm, they were very clear what level of profound strength was required to perform the feat that he had just displayed…

They had never paid any attention to the Seven Nation Ranking Tournament because, to the Sacred Grounds, the Seven Nations were inferior existences. If not for the might of the Phoenix Divine Spirit, they would not even pay any mind to the strongest nation, the Divine Phoenix Empire. So the Seven Nation Ranking Tournament was only a place where the strongest amongst the weak went to play. So they knew the name “Yun Che,” not only because he had caused the Divine Phoenix Empire to lose the first time in the Seven Nation Ranking Tournament, but also because of the anger this name had caused Ye Xinghan after he had returned from the Divine Phoenix Empire.

And at this time, they began to vaguely remember… three years ago, Yun Che had beaten the ten strongest members of the youngest generation of the Divine Phoenix Empire, and his profound level had only been at the Earth Profound Realm. At that time, nearly everyone in Sun Moon Divine Hall expressed their disbelief and even treated it as a joke.

In addition, the ten Divine Phoenix disciples he had defeated were all in the mid-stage of the Emperor Profound Realm… and some of them were even late stage Thrones.

So if that rumor was true… and if the Yun Che at the Earth Profound Realm could defeat late stage Thrones, then the Yun Che who now had the profound power of the Emperor Profound Realm…

The impact that scene had on Ye Qingsheng and Ye Ziyi was simply too great. Their hearts and souls were greatly shaken, completely unable to calm down. Facing this young man who only exuded an aura that was at the third level of the Emperor Profound, their hearts started to beat harder and harder in their chests.

Ye Qingsheng could no longer laugh. The only thing he could do was pray that what happened just now was only a coincidence that could not be duplicated. With that, he grit his teeth and gave a flourish of his hand. “All of you advance together… capture him!!”

As Ye Qingsheng’s command cut through the air, the profound energy of the nine, black-robed Thrones exploded outwards. They gave a low cry and rushed towards Yun Che from multiple directions. The eyes of every single one of them gleamed with viciousness, and they held nothing back. Nine strong profound auras caused ripples to criss-cross through the intervening space… their companion had been killed in an instant by this young man who was weaker than him by half a realm, and perhaps that could be written off as a unique coincidence, but if nine people advanced together, this kind of “coincidence”… could not appear no matter what happened!

Nine Thrones who were at the eighth level and above launched an all-out assault against a level three Throne. Before today, if they had heard of it, they would all definitely feel that such a situation would be extremely funny. But right now, while Yun Che’s profound strength was actually at the Emperor Profound Realm, his true strength had never been comparable to the level of his profound strength. So even though he was also at the Emperor Profound Realm, the strength of someone at the Emperor Profound Realm was to him… something that could only be described as “utterly weak.”

Despite facing the all-out assault of nine Thrones, Yun Che’s feet still remained rooted to the ground, and not a single ripple could be seen in his eyes. He only raised his arm as a blue light flashed in his palm. Following a flourish of his hand, nine ice spirits suddenly shot out… the speed of the ice spirits was extremely fast, and nine blue lines were traced through the air. Those nine Thrones didn’t even register the blue flashes of light before the ice spirits made contact with their chests.

Chink, chink, chink, chink, chink, chink…

The blue lights were as small the lights of fireflies, but the moment those nine Thrones came into contact with them, their entire bodies were bathed in blue light as they morphed into ice statues… They had been completely frozen from the inside out!

There were no wails nor horror. Not even an instance of resistance was displayed. There was only the heavy ring of nine objects solidifying into solid ice… and in the very next instant, nine ice statues fell from midair to smash against the ground.

Bang, bang, bang, bang…

Once the ice statues came into contact with the ground, they instantly shattered into pieces. Some of them shattered into tiny fragments while others broke into several big chunks. Even the least damaged statue had snapped at the waist as numerous cracks ran through his body. As for those who had flown the highest, their bodies had been shattered into dregs of ice… Moreover, along the floor that was filled with broken fragments, not a single trace of blood could be seen. That was because even their blood had been instantly and completely frozen in that one moment.

“Wha… wha… what?!!” Ye Qingsheng and Ye Ziyi backed up a step simultaneously… the two mighty Overlords’ pupils shrank into pinpricks, and even their legs could be seen to be trembling.

Nine high level Thrones were frozen and sealed in an instant… and the most horrifying fact was that after their frozen bodies had naturally fallen from the air, they actually all shattered on the cold and hard ground as if they were all made of regular ice.

As high level Thrones, they had the profound strength of the Emperor Profound Realm protecting their body. Even if they fell to the bottom of an extremely deep ravine, there was no way their bodies would have shattered solely because of that. Additionally, even if they were sealed in ice, their protective profound energy should have still remained… Not only that, even if they had died in that instant, their profound energy should not have immediately and completely dissipated/disappeared.

But the scene that had just unfolded right before their very eyes was so horrifying that they could scarcely believe it… They had begun to suspect whether this was an illusion that simply did not exist in reality… or perhaps they were stuck in a nightmare.

Unless… unless in that instant, not only were their bodies sealed in ice, but even their profound energy was sealed in ice as well.

Furthermore, this level of strength, how could it appear on someone who was only around twenty years old and whose profound energy aura was only at that of the Emperor Profound Realm?!

“Ah…” Behind Yun Che, all the girls of Frozen Cloud Asgard cried out in astonishment and unwittingly raised their hands to their lips, and even Frozen Cloud’s Seven Fairies were completely dumbfounded… the scene they had just witnessed was a million times more shocking than when he had killed that level nine Throne in an instant.

This was a power that they had never seen before, one that even completely exceeded the bounds of their understanding!

To be able to kill a level nine Throne in an instant was something that Ye Qingsheng and Ye Ziyi could do as well. But to simultaneously kill nine late-stage Thrones, even if the both of them cooperated together, it was something they definitely could not do… and when Yun Che made his move, not only were they unable to sense the slightest ripple of profound energy, during the entire process, he had only waved his hand in an extremely casual manner… it was as if he had only used the energy it would take to lift a finger.

Both of them had been rendered completely breathless as the cold sensation in their bodies instantly swelled up tens of times over. But at this point, Yun Che’s gaze fell on their bodies and they felt a thick and fierce killing intent lock in on them. “Now, it’s your turn.”

After being targeted by Yun Che’s killing intent, their bodies suddenly ran cold, as if there was a python twisting around their bodies only to set their venomous fangs against their throat.

A terror they had never felt before spread through their entire bodies. If they were previously unsure of the gap between their power and Yun Che’s, the moment Yun Che’s killing intent locked on to them… that indescribable, bone-piercing cold, caused their very hearts and souls to shiver so severely that they could not control themselves no matter what they did, and that very oppressive pressure also caused their profound strength to curl up and become sluggish. All of these things led them to discover, to their horror, that this young man not only had a profound strength that far surpassed the Emperor Profound Realm, he was also stronger than the two of them, both mid-stage Overlords, by nearly an entire realm as well!

They had only ever experienced such a strong might and pressure in the presences of a Monarch.

The Yun Che in front of them… just a flourish of his hand was enough to instantly kill nine late-stage Thrones… so he definitely had the ability to kill the both of them!”

Ye Qingsheng started to shuffle his feet backwards… That was a movement which indicated that he was prepared to flee at any moment. At this time, he already knew that he could definitely not behave arrogantly, no matter the circumstances. He forced his terror down and did not allow it to show on his face while giving a low shout, “Yun Che! You…. Do you know who we are…”

“I don’t know who the both of you are.” Yun Che’s every word was as heavy as a gigantic boulder smashing against their chests. “But I do know one thing… that the both of you are about to become dead men!”

RIIP!!

Before the sound of Yun Che’s voice had finished falling, his figure instantly blurred as his real body appeared in front of Ye Ziyi like a ghost… His speed was way too fast, it was so quick to the point that no one had any time to react at all, and even when he appeared before the two of them, both of these mighty Overlords were still focused on the still-present afterimage that he had left behind.

“Ah!!” The figure that abruptly appeared caused Ye Qingsheng, whose nerves were already tightly wound, to give a strangled cry in shock and fear as he shot backwards like an arrow. However, Yun Che’s hand already had formed a death grip around Ye Ziyi’s throat, and with a simple shrug of his shoulders, he completely lifted him off the ground.

Ye Ziyi’s eyes widened into saucers, and his eyeballs started bulging out as his entire face turned beet red… that hand around his throat was simply too fierce and tight, so much so that he was unable to even utter a groan of pain. Moreover, all of the profound energy in his body was completely suppressed by an extremely tyrannical strength. It completely sealed his every moment and did not even allow him resist even in the slightest. It was as if Yun Che was lifting a rigid corpse into the air.

Ye Qingsheng stumbled backwards in terror as the pretty faces of the women of Frozen Cloud Asgard completely went pale… Ye Qingsheng and Ye Ziyi, both of them were incomparably powerful Overlords, and it was also the two of them that forced everyone from Frozen Cloud Asgard into this desperate situation. To them, they were stronger and more terrifying than demons. They were existences that could not be resisted or defeated, no matter what they did.

Despite that, Yun Che had actually grabbed such a terrifying person by the throat, and that person could only twitch and convulse in that death grip without even being able to fight back… even both of his hands flopped uselessly at his side… he did not even have the strength to lift up both hands!

If he was not being completely suppressed by such an absolute power, how would it be possible for this mighty Overlord to not even be able to muster the slightest bit of resistance.

Ye Ziyi’s pupils slowly dilated, and it seemed like they were going to explode out of his eyes as they were filled with terror, despair, and pleading. But why would Yun Che show even the slightest bit of mercy? With a slight twitch of his fingers, the bones in Ye Ziyi’s throat were reduced to fine powder. Yun Che gave a low shout after that, “My Frozen Cloud Asgard had no quarrel or complaint with you, yet you have behaved against us in such an evil and vicious manner… even though you are only lapdogs… even if you died ten thousand times, it would not redeem your sins! Die!!!”

As the word “die” was spoken, a flame flashed in Yun Che’s eyes, and the red-hot Golden Crow flames ignited in his hand. It instantly spread to Ye Ziyi’s body and turned him into a human torch. Ye Ziyi, whose entire body was being baptised in the Golden Crow flames, was in such pain that even his pupils spasmed, and all of his fear and pleading was turned into extreme pain and despair…

The flames in Yun Che’s hands soared into the sky, and after a few breaths, they swiftly fell. Finally, after the flames died out and the last fire petal hit the ground, Ye Ziyi’s body had already completely disappeared… not even ashes remained.

The Frozen End Divine Hall had descended into an absolute silence. While the air had turned scorching hot, Ye Qingsheng’s entire body went cold, and he felt as if he had been plunged into a frozen hell. He could only helplessly look on as Ye Ziyi was, in the span of a few breaths, reduced to ashes by Yun Che without even the slightest opposition… His body went limp the moment he saw Ye Ziyi’s body completely disappear, and as Yun Che’s gaze slowly rotated over to him, he let out a shrill and strangled cry as he scrambled up the wall, attempting to desperately climb to freedom… It was as if he was a defeated dog who had been completely scared out of his mind.

  1. 第三章【魔法的道路】

    罗林家族的那个白痴小少爷,把博学的老师给气跑了,这几乎成了帝都最近几天来最出名的笑话。

    很多无聊的人都抱着幸灾乐祸的心思谈论着这件事情。谁叫罗林家族的雷蒙伯爵现在风光无限呢?看见这么一个大人物倒霉,倒是很符合一些无聊之人的阴暗心理了。

    况且,雷蒙伯爵也犯了一个错误。他当初的重金悬赏,寻找人来让自己的孩子开口说话,已经变成了一个新鲜事情,一个不大不小的新闻。而因为那件事情,才让罗林家族的白痴小少爷一下出了名!成为了人们乐于谈论的焦点。

    甚至于,这两年在帝都,不少人家在生孩子的时候,都会习惯性的说上一句:“哦,男孩儿女孩儿都没关系,只要健康就好了……千万别像倒霉的罗林家那样生了个小白痴。”

    这一天,杜维少爷再次迎来了自己的父亲。这次和伯爵一起到来的人,让杜维非常不喜欢。因为这个人穿着一件灰色的长袍,灰色的尖顶帽子,他还有着枯瘦的手指,还有浑浊的眼神。

    这个家伙全身都散着一丝让人不舒服的腐朽陈旧的味道。而且,他身上的森然的气息更让杜维狠狠的打了个喷嚏。

    “克拉克法师,这就是我的儿子。”帝国统帅部副总统领,帝**方二号人物,伯爵大人对身边这个家伙说话很客气:“请您看看,他是否在神圣的魔法道路上,有哪怕一丁点儿前途?”

    看来伯爵大人是无可奈何了,这次他请来教导儿子的,是帝都著名的克拉克法师。

    如果“魔法师”也能算是一种职业的话,那么这个职业无疑是最被人尊敬的行业之一了。虽然,这所谓的“尊敬”里,更多的是带着一丝畏惧。

    在任何地方,魔法师都是高贵身份的象征,他们可以和任何贵族平起平坐,得到最优厚的待遇。一个有力的魔法师,在战争中的作用可以媲美一个小型的军队!而所有的魔法师都是任何国家领导者极力招揽的对象!不仅仅因为魔法师拥有人的本领,更因为这些人不会对领导者的权力造成威胁!

    一个魔法师毕生的大部分精力都会花费在研究魔法或者冥想积攒魔力中渡过。几乎所有的魔法师都没有什么世俗人的**,他们不贪财……因为一个合格的炼金术法师就可以用魔法把顽劣的石头变成宝石或者黄金!贵重的宝石在他们的眼里不过是一些魔法辅助道具而已。

    而魔法师没有权力**,他们的生命都以追求魔法的奥秘为最大的目标,世俗的权力**并不被他们看在眼里。这更是为权力者所喜!

    可以说,在整个罗兰世界里,魔法师都是最高贵的行业,他们被所有的权力人物极力招揽,可以享受到最好的待遇!

    但是……伯爵大人可并不希望自己的儿子变成魔法师!哪怕还有任何一丝其他的选择的话!

    因为几乎所有的魔法师,都是被人畏惧的……怪物!他们不近人情,生性孤僻,古怪,而且不喜欢和人打交道,喜欢封闭自己,沉醉于魔法研究。没有一个贵族少女会喜欢和一个成天躲在研究室里的怪物谈情说爱。没有一个贵族的宴会里会邀请一个冷冰冰的魔法师来破坏气氛。没有一个皇帝会给魔法师授予爵位或者让魔法师担任帝国重臣!

    而杜维,毕竟是自己的儿子!是罗林家族的继承人!他需要今后谈情说爱,需要结婚生子,需要延续家族,需要参加各种贵族圈子的应酬交际场合……

    可是,谁叫自己的儿子是一个学武不成,学文也不成的“白痴”呢?看来,想要取得一点成就,魔法师是他剩下的最后选择了!

    如果伟大的罗林家族历史上能出一个高的魔法师……虽然有些不伦不类,但是也算过得去吧!

    带着希翼的目光,伯爵目送克拉克法师领着自己的儿子进入了一个准备好的封闭小房间里。

    “好了,小子。”走进房间之后,克拉克法师立刻拿出了一个小小的瓶子,倒出一点金色的粉末在自己的指尖,飞快的在房间里画了一个大圈,然后转过身看着杜维:“我已经下了一个静音咒。现在,我们在这里的谈话,外面没有人能听见。”

    然后,这个一脸森然寒气的魔法师走到杜维的面前,看着面前的这个小不点:“现在,告诉我,小子,在你心中,什么是魔法?”

    魔法是什么?

    这个问题让杜维迟疑了一下。从内心的真实想法上,他倒是对这个世界的“魔法”很有点兴趣。毕竟,他也知道很多关于魔法的瑰丽传说。可魔法到底是什么……在杜维的印象中,所谓的魔法师使用魔法的时候,一般都是高声吟唱着什么“风之神啊,请听从我的召唤啊……”之类的词儿。

    然后,就是飞砂走石,鬼哭神嚎之类的玩意儿了。

    看着面前的这个孩子不说话,想来对于这个年轻的孩童来说,这个问题是过于深奥了吧。克拉克笑了一下,然后用低沉而缓慢的嗓音说:“魔法,就是万能的神灵赐予人类解开神灵启示的奥秘!是人类追求这个世界上终极力量的途径!是了解自己,了解世界,并且解开神灵赐予人类最大礼物的源泉!”

    身穿灰袍的克拉克声音带着一丝神圣的味道。可惜这番言辞,对于杜维来说,却并不感冒。因为这番貌似崇高的话语,在杜维听来实在是有些装逼的嫌疑。

    年轻的杜维脸上并没有表现出什么来,而孩子的沉默,也让高傲的魔法师误以为是对自己的畏惧。他很满意伯爵继承人的反应。随后,魔法师从宽大的灰袍里拿出了一枚拳头大的水晶圆球来。

    “精神力是衡量一个人是否有魔法天赋的标准之一……虽然不是唯一的标准,但却是最重要的一个环节。现在,让我测测你的魔力天赋……”

    杜维终于开口了,他提出了心里的疑问:“精神力?魔力?可是,不是只有魔法师才具有魔力么?”

    克拉克瞪圆了眼睛:“是谁告诉你这种错误离谱的说法?见鬼,难道罗林伯爵府上还有连这种常识都没有的人么?”

    魔法师被这种常识性的错误激怒了:“精神力是普通人的说法,对于魔法师来说,精神力就是魔力!魔法师可以通过冥想的法门,让自己的精神力不断的壮大和增加,然后用出常人的精神力去感应这个世界,感应自然之中的奥妙,感应这个自然世界里的各种力量,只有精神力强大的人才能做到这一点!不断增加积累的精神力,可以使得魔法师更加清晰的感应到世界的种种魔法元素……而所谓的魔法,就是用一些窍门,让魔法师依靠自己的精神力量指挥,或者借用一点自然世界里的力量为魔法师所用——这就是魔法。”

    杜维叹了口气:“我明白了……精神力,就是魔力。而所谓的魔力,其实就是一种杠杆。魔法师借助这个杠杆来借取自然的力量。”

    克拉克浑浊的眼神里露出了一丝惊讶:“难以相信,哦,五岁多的孩子……哦,你很聪明,可什么别人却把你称作白痴?”

    对于这个问题,杜维没说话,只是默默的看着魔法师。高傲的克拉克魔法师是不会在这种小问题上浪费时间的,他也就是略微意外了一下,就忽略了这个问题。

    “这个世界,这个自然的世界里蕴涵了太多的魔法元素,它们的每一点,每一滴都是力量的源泉。雨水雷电,暴雪狂风,甚至是日月星辰的更替,鲜花草木的绽放枯萎……这所有的一切都是自然里的力量源泉。而一个优秀的魔法师,就能充分的感应到世界上的各种细微清晰的异动。你刚才说的‘杠杆’是一个很有趣的比喻。简单说来,当你拥有的杠杆越强大,你就可以调动更强大的自然力量。而杠杆太弱小,能调动的自然力量也就很有限了。”

    杜维叹了口气:“原来是这样。我还以为魔法师的力量,都是来源于自身的‘魔力’。”

    克拉克再次皱眉:“我不得不怀疑,到底是谁对你说出过这么没有常识的话?我刚才的话,都是哪怕一个最最低级的魔法学徒都知道的常识!‘力量来自于自身的魔力’?我的天……我不得不更正你,你牢牢的记住:人类的力量是有限的,即使是再强壮的人,也是有限的!魔法师可以做到常人做不到的事情,比如强大的魔法师可以挥手移平一座小山,或者召唤来一场风暴……但是那绝不是魔法师本身的力量。而是通过魔法,借助了世界里自然的力量!而这个世界,是神创造给我们的,所以,从根源上说,魔法师使用魔法的时候,是借助了神灵的力量!记住,人类是神灵创造的,人类也绝不可能拥有神灵的力量!那是一个禁忌!魔法师的力量来源于自然,来源于创造了这个‘自然’的神灵!”

    他压低了声音,皱眉道:“我很奇怪,罗林家族怎么会有一个你这么对常识都错误百出的孩子。如果当你成年之后,还在外面说出类似于魔法师的力量是来源于自身这样的话……我不敢保证你不会被烧死在神殿前的火刑柱上!因为你的话,从根本上是在怀疑神灵!”

    杜维闭上了嘴巴,他的眼神回复了木然,然后垂下了小小的脑袋,很恰当的掩藏了自己的表情。
