Chapter 1144: Only Death

When Xiang Shaoyun himself stepped out, the Dragon Society people were stunned. They had not expected Xiang Shaoyun to be confident enough to fight.

Among the 108 generals, a certain youth was looking at Xiang Shaoyun with excitement. He thought, This fellow is actually the Ziling Sect's young sect master? After so many years, his strength has grown to a level not even I can see through. I hope he doesn't die so easily.

Very few people in the Dragon Society would hope for Xiang Shaoyun to not die early. Who would this young man be? Perhaps that question would only be answered after Xiang Shaoyun saw him.

"Haha. You are gutsy. I'll face you myself," said Long Yugang with a hearty laugh.

He was a third-stage Sovereign, and he could see that Xiang Shaoyun was only at second-stage Soul Foundation Realm. He was confident he could defeat Xiang Shaoyun.

At this time, Liang Cairen walked up to him and said, "Young society master, you shouldn't."

"Old Liang, don't you have any confidence in me?" asked Long Yugang unhappily.

Liang Cairen hurriedly said, "That's not it. With your identity, how can you put yourself in danger? It will be much better for you to continue watching over everyone."

"Old Liang, you might be right, but I want to personally teach him a lesson and conquer the entirety of the Ziling Sect," said Long Yugang stubbornly.

"Why don't I fight this round instead?" offered Liang Cairen anxiously.

Liang Cairen had personally experienced Xiang Shaoyun's strength. He was definitely more than he looked, and Liang Cairen was afraid that Long Yugang would be killed.

"Liang Cairen!" Long Yugang roared, displeased. His anger was clear for all to see.

He had already said that he was going to fight, yet Liang Cairen was stopping him. If he didn't fight, it would only give everyone the impression he was less than Xiang Shaoyun. He would never swallow such an insult. Liang Cairen had a fearful look on his face, not knowing what to say.

"Just start the fight already. Stop wasting time," said Xiang Shaoyun.

Long Yugang gave Liang Cairen a glare before proceeding to step forward. But at this time, Jin Junyi's voice rang out, "Yugang, don't be hasty. Let Jin Meng fight this round."

"What? Why do we need Senior Brother Meng to fight someone like him?" said Long Yugang in astonishment.

If Zhang Dongsheng was the Dragon Society's number one Emperor, Jin Meng was the society's number one Sovereign. He was someone who could already enter the Heaven Battling Realm.

Riding atop a deer, Jin Meng advanced. He looked like a middle-aged man. He had a steadfast face that gave off an iron-blood and cold sensation. His eyes were akin to a pair of golden moons that one wouldn't dare look straight at. In his hand was a golden halberd shining with a dazzling radiance. Clad in golden armor, he looked like an unyielding golden knight.

He was Jin Junyi's first disciple, one of the Dragon Society's strongest generals. Throughout his career, he had killed 88 enemy Sovereigns and had not encountered a single defeat. His fierce reputation earned him the nickname First Fierce Sovereign in the Soaring Dragon Province. The Dragon Society people had full confidence in him.

"The deputy society master is actually sending Elder Jin Meng out. Looks like there is already no hope for the Ziling Sect."

"Their young sect master seems quite capable, but he probably won't survive even a move from Elder Jin Meng. Elder Jin Meng is just too strong."

"That's right. He is the society's next Heaven Battling Realm, and he has been undefeated so far. As usual, he will obtain yet another victory today."

"Let's sit back and watch as this Ziling Sect young sect master dies."

...

Long Yugang couldn't go against Jin Junyi's words, so he could only step back in an unreconciled manner. He might be the young society master, but this matter was too important for him to act rashly. More importantly, he also didn't dare to disobey Jin Junyi, the deputy society master.

"So, are you done? Get over here and die already," said Xiang Shaoyun coldly.

"Xiang Yangzhan has quite the ignorant son. If you submit to us now, I can consider sparing your life," said Jin Junyi.

Xiang Shaoyun looked at Jin Junyi and said seriously, "How can I throw what my father built away? At most, I'll only suffer death."

"Well said. Since that's the case, you can die," said Jin Junyi with a cold snort.

Jin Junyi had old grievances with Xiang Yangzhan. Since he couldn't persuade Xiang Shaoyun to submit, he felt even more unhappy. He decided to just kill Xiang Shaoyun and be done with it.

Xiang Shaoyun ignored Jin Junyi. His gaze was focused on Jin Meng. He could feel that Jin Meng was no weaker than the taurus. In fact, Jin Meng seemed even more dangerous. An expert this strong brought Xiang Shaoyun pressure, but he was still confident that he could defeat his opponent. He was now a second-stage Sovereign. He also had numerous battle techniques he could use and had comprehended the nine profundities. Defeat was not possible.

Jin Meng got off his mount, looked at Xiang Shaoyun with contempt, and said, "You will be spared if you submit.”

As he spoke, a golden wave of energy crushed forth toward Xiang Shaoyun. The surrounding soil and stones were overturned as he unleashed an immensely terrifying oppression on his surroundings. This wave attack was powerful enough to seriously injure any regular Sovereign. And this was merely Jin Meng's release of aura. If he started attacking for real, it would probably be even more terrifying.

Xiang Shaoyun stood still like an unmovable mountain. He nonchalantly replied, "The same applies to you."

Jin Meng raised his brow and howled with laughter. "Haha, interesting. Let me see just how capable you are."

He approached Xiang Shaoyun with wide steps. With each step he took, his aura surged and ultimately formed numerous overlapping golden waves. The waves rushed toward Xiang Shaoyun again and again.

This was the aura of a peak Sovereign like Jin Meng, yet this aura was much more terrifying than the aura a regular Sovereign could unleash. He gave off the feeling that he could absolutely punch above his class.

The expressions of the Ziling Sect people changed greatly. They could sense Jin Meng's strength, and they started to worry for Xiang Shaoyun. 

However, Xiang Shaoyun was not only showing no fear but was actually advancing toward the waves.

Overlord's Nine Nether Steps!

His aura burst out of his body and spread in all directions, repelling the golden waves with his innate purple lightning. A dragon and a tiger manifested. The two roared, forming an unrivaled aura of dragon and tiger as they pounced on Jin Meng.

Xiang Shaoyun took three steps forward. Each step carried with it a supreme might and pressure. Strands of purple lightning danced about him, wreaking havoc in his surroundings. His third step landed above Jin Meng, as though he was going to nail Jin Meng into the ground.

Jin Meng frowned before a look of excitement covered his face. He roared, "Possessing such a powerful aura at second-stage Sovereign Realm? Looks like you have quite a solid foundation. If you're allowed to grow for a few more years, I'm afraid nobody in the Sovereign Realm would be your match. It's a pity you will die today."
