On the city walls of Xuanzhou City stood three Heavenly Sun stage experts. Powerful Genesis Qi raged around them, causing the air to tremble slightly.
Yi Qiushui’s beautiful eyes also darted up to the three figures. Her stunning face froze for a moment before she said, “So it’s the head of the Qiu clan, Qiu Long. I with a lowly status am not worth enough for patriarch Qiu Long to come out to welcome me.”
Among the three Heavenly Sun experts, a burly and tall middle-aged man shot an oppressive glance at Yi Qiushui. “Niece Qiushui is over thinking. I came not because of you but for the bastard that killed my son!”
His sinister eyes continued to stare at Zhou Yuan next to Yi Qiushui. “Hand that person over and I will let you into the city.”
It was evident that he had heard the whole story from Qiu Ji already and knew it was Zhou Yuan who had suddenly emerged and ruined the Qiu clan’s plan.
Yi Qiushui sneered, “Do I need patriarch Qiu Long’s permission to enter the city?”
“Niece Qiushui, the Yi and Qiu clan’s relationship isn’t bad. When your father wasn’t around, my Qiu clan did our best to cooperate. I hope you don’t let an outsider ruin the relationship between our two families,” Qiu Long said, expressionless.
Yi Qiushui remarked coldly, “Speaking of this, I have to thank your Qiu clan for the protection along the way.”
When she uttered the word protection, the corners of her mouth were curved in a sarcastic smile.
“Qiu Ji and the others had no other intention and just wanted to capture the trash that killed Qiu Yang. If you had handed him over, there naturally wouldn’t be any misunderstanding,” Qiu Long said.
Before waiting for Yi Qiushui to respond, he shifted his gaze onto Zhou Yuan. “Boy, kneel down and wait to be captured, then perhaps I can let you die a painless death.
“You killed my son. Nobody else can protect you!”
Zhou Yuan narrowed his eyes. “Although it’s my first time here, I didn’t expect to see a Heavenly Sun expert talk big. Is it because I have never seen the world, or have you never seen the world?”
Although the experts of the Heavenly Sun stage were strong, Zhou Yuan had experienced a Saint battle. Compared to an existence like Sheng Yuan, the head of the Qui clan was just like a rich man from the countryside, and Sheng Yuan was like the emperor of a kingdom.
“Heavenly Sun stage may not count for much, but it can still easily squeeze a little trash like you to death.” A malicious glint flashed in Qiu Long’s eyes. “Niece Qiushui, you really don’t plan to hand him over?”
Zhou Yuan could hear the murderous intent suppressed in Qiu Long’s voice. Zhou Yuan’s face was calm, but his body was tensed up, and he had unknowingly taken another two steps back.
He did not have absolute trust in Yi Qiushui. So if she showed the slightest hesitation, he would turn around and flee.
Although he couldn’t win against a Heavenly Sun stage expert, he had confidence in escaping.
Facing a Heavenly Sun expert at the Divine Dwelling stage, he believed escaping wasn’t shameful, and being able to flee was actually a mark of one’s capabilities.
However, what made Zhou Yuan breathe a sigh of relief was that Yi Qiushui didn’t answer. Instead, she coldly stared at Qiu Long with her beautiful eyes. Her intention was already self-evident.
“Since niece Qiushui has already been deceived, I have to take action myself!”
While Qiu Long’s icy cold voice faded, mighty Genesis Qi suddenly erupted from his body. It was at that moment when a bright and huge sun rose one hundred meters behind him.
That dazzling sun was formed from the purest Genesis Qi of the universe, and when it appeared, a terrifying Genesis Qi energy blanketed the sky.
Under that kind of oppressive pressure, Yi Qiushui suddenly felt her body sinking, as if a huge mountain was pressing down.
Qiu Long thrust his palm out, causing the Genesis Qi of the universe to whizz over and transform into a gigantic Genesis Qi palm over thousands of feet tall. It directly slammed down in Zhou Yuan’s direction.
The gigantic palm of Genesis Qi was as bright as a crystal. It was obvious that he had compressed Genesis Qi to a very frightening level. A Heavenly Sun expert’s control of Genesis Qi was indeed far superior to that of a Divine Dwelling expert.
Qiu Long didn’t deliberately avoid Yi Qiushui. Although he dared not directly kill her in public, he was very happy to make her suffer.
Zhou Yuan narrowed his eyes, watching the giant palm of Genesis Qi speed over. He was about to frantically retreat when he heard Yi Qiushui softly say, “Don’t worry.”
His eyes flashed, and he stopped, but the Genesis Qi in his body was pulsing like a torrent, ready to erupt.
The giant crystal-like palm, carrying infinite power, slammed down like a mountain.
However, just when that giant palm was only ten feet from Zhou Yuan and Yi Qiushui, an indifferent and old voice echoed across the world, “Qiu Long, you are so powerful and respected, but you came to the city gate to bully a child of our Yi clan?”
Along with the old voice was a scarlet-red arc streaking across the world. There were flames rising from the scarlet arc, and the temperature of the whole world seemed to increase.
The scarlet arc directly collided with that giant crystal-like palm. The void trembled violently, and both bloomed like fireworks before finally dissipating under the violent gusts of wind.
Zhou Yuan lifted his head to see two figures standing tall in the air.
In front was an old man with black and white hair. He looked energetic but cold, and beside him was a middle-aged man. Both exuded tremendously powerful Genesis Qi that was not in the slightest weaker than Qiu Long’s.
They were the Heavenly Sun stage elders of the Qiu clan.
At the same time, numerous silhouettes appeared above the city wall.
The people in Xuanzhou City were finally aware of the movement at the city gate.
However, no one tried to intervene or calm things down. The atmosphere in Xuanzhou City was very strange. The position of Prefecture Lord had been left empty ever since the head of the Yi clan had died in the Thousand Beast Mountain Range. Both the Qiu and Yi families had called on all their friends, causing all kinds of open and secret fights, thereby turning the situation in Xuanzhou City extremely lively.
Qiu Long wrinkled his brows when he saw the old man with black and white hair. That old guy of the Yi clan came really fast.
“So it’s elder Qianji.
“I have already said that I am not targeting niece Qiushui and that I have come for the beast that killed my son. My son died tragically. Must the Yi clan intervene in my revenge?”
Yi Qiushui’s beautiful eyes turned icy cold. “Qiu Yang attempted to kidnap Dong’er, so he brought it on himself!”
“Nonsense, niece Qiushui. Don’t think that because my child is dead, you can besmirch his name like that.”
He cast a glance at Yi Qianji in midair and said indifferently, “Elder Qianji, I am also very upset that Prefecture Lord Yi died in the Thousand Beast Mountain Range. These days, my Qiu clan has done our best to stabilise Xuanzhou City, and there haven’t been any troubles so far. Hasn’t my Qiu clan given enough face to the Yi clan already?
“If your Yi clan wants to let my son die tragically because of an irrelevant person, then that means you look down on us and think your clan is superior. Even though your Yi clan has a stronger background than our Qiu clan, we will not let you trample on us like this.
“If the Yi clan doesn’t hand over that person, my Qiu clan will have no choice but to fight your Yi clan.”
Qiu Long’s voice rang throughout the city, falling into the ears of all the forces in Xuanzhou City, and immediately sent a chill down many an expert’s spine.
The Yi clan and the Qiu clan had been competing for the position of Prefecture Lord of Xiaoxuan Prefecture during this period of time, but in the end they hadn’t completely torn each other’s faces. Many people knew that this was because the Qiu clan lacked the means and reason to compete for Prefecture Lord.
But now, the death of a child of the Qiu clan was the best excuse for Qiu Long to rise in revolt unless the Yi clan hands over Qiu Yang’s killer and therefore eases the situation.
Standing in midair, Yi Qianji wrinkled his brows, understanding Qiu Long’s intention. He was faced with a difficult choice. He knew that if they refuse to listen to Qiu Long, a battle between the Yi clan and the Qiu clan would truly break out.
But his Yi clan wasn’t fully prepared for this.
While Yi Qianji was in deep thoughts, Yi Qiushui slowly stepped forward under countless watchful gazes. She looked directly at Qiu Long with her bright eyes, and her soft and resolute voice rang throughout the city.
“You really think I don’t know what your Qiu clan is planning? No matter how your Qiu clan wants to fight, I will represent the Yi clan to accept it!
“But, if you want me to surrender a person, no way!”Previous Chapter Next Chapter
