Chapter 1222: Handsome Xiang Shaoyun

Elephant Devil's Trample!

The stomp was powerful enough to crush the world and cause the sky to rupture with its incomparable might. Facing the stomp, Xiang Shaoyun charged forward instead of retreating. A yellowish radiance condensed at the tip of his finger as he pointed at the leg.

Whoosh!

The finger beam pierced through space as it headed toward the sole of the elephant's feet. The yellowish beam turned golden as it shot forward, becoming increasingly sharp and terrifying.

This was Xiang Shaoyun's newly created Stone to Gold finger technique. With the concept of earth begets gold, the energies of earth and gold fused into an unstoppable power. They instantly penetrated the sole, causing the elephant devil to roar in pain and pull back its leg.

With a look of scorn, Xiang Shaoyun said, "Mere brute strength. Nothing special at all."

His contempt infuriated the ivory elephant devil, which roared, "Human kid, you will die a miserable death!"

The elephant devil swept its trunk like a whip, creating a thick and solid beam of light that shot toward Xiang Shaoyun's vitals. The trunk was as tough as the best of weapons. Anyone it struck would probably be reduced into a pile of mincemeat.

Xiang Shaoyun sneered and advanced again. He clawed at the trunk. His sharp energy claws, powered by a raging flame, shot forward and collided against the trunk. The fiery claws tore through the energy around the trunk, then clasped the trunk, rendering it immobile.

Infuriated, the ivory elephant devil unleashed all its strength in an attempt to pull the trunk back to swat away Xiang Shaoyun. However, Xiang Shaoyun's grip was too strong. Not only had the elephant devil failed to pull its trunk back, but it had also been tossed away.

"Piss off," said Xiang Shaoyun as he threw the elephant away like some toy.

The massive elephant crashed through several mountains before finally stopping.

The impact disoriented the elephant. If it wasn't for its thick skin, it would have been thrown to its death. The Sacred Deer Academy disciples were completely dumbstruck after witnessing Xiang Shaoyun's heroic might.

Before their eyes, he charged forward and punched the massive elephant. He threw it before the disciples and said, "Job's done."

He then dusted his palms in a carefree manner as though he hadn't broken a sweat from the fight. The disciples' astonished eyes twinkled as they looked at him with reverence and adoration.

Not only was Xiang Shaoyun handsome, but he was also valiant. It was understandable for these girls to be smitten by him. Even the Sacred Deer Academy's number one beauty, Jiang Qi, had her heart thumping heart as she thought, Xiang Shaoyun is so handsome. 

However, Jiang Qi had incredible willpower and knew that a man like Xiang Shaoyun would have a lot of admirers. It wouldn't be easy to win his heart.

She calmed her mind and cupped her hands at Xiang Shaoyun. "Thank you, Xiang Shaoyun. If it wasn't for you, we wouldn't have survived."

Smiling, Xiang Shaoyun waved his hand and said, "No worries. It's nothing."

Just as Jiang Qi was about to speak, a voice rang out, "Help, senior sister. Luo Ying is about to die from the corrosion brought about by devilish energy."

The Sacred Deer Academy disciples panicked and  rushed toward the speaker. They soon found several injured individuals; one of them was nearly dead.

"Was she fed any spiritual spring water?" asked Jiang Qi.

"Yes, but it didn't seem to work. She has been infected with not only devilish energy but also some devilish poison. Her injuries are grave," answered the nervous disciple.

Xiang Shaoyun looked over and found that the injured disciple looked decent. In fact, her beauty was comparable with Jiang Qi's, her beautiful face round and her figure voluptuous. Together with her blue outfit, she had a youthful and enchanting bearing. Unfortunately, she had a pitiful look of suffering on her pale face.

Xiang Shaoyun found his heart softening. "Move aside. I can help her."

"Xiang Shaoyun, if you have a solution, please save my junior sister," Jiang Qi pleaded.

"Don't worry. Her injuries aren't that bad," said Xiang Shaoyun with a nod. He stepped forth and fed the woman a drop of top-quality lightning liquid.

The top-quality lightning liquid had a property of extreme yang and contained rich vitality. It could cleanse devilish poison and restore one's life force—it was an incredibly rare saint-grade liquid.

However, the woman's body had also been invaded by devilish energy. She would probably die before the lightning liquid could even begin to heal her. Therefore, Xiang Shaoyun had to absorb all the devilish energy in her body. That was precisely what he did when he held her hand.

A man to the side immediately berated, "What are you doing? Let go of Junior Luo Ying's hand immediately!"

The man looked decent and was also considerably strong. However, he currently looked rather wretched because he had also suffered a serious injury. His name was Hu Ruhai, and he had a crush on the injured woman.

"Shut up if you want her to live," Xiang Shaoyun snapped.

Jiang Qi hurriedly said, "Stop messing around, Hu Ruhai. Just watch silently."

Hu Ruhai hesitated slightly before deciding to shut his mouth. However, his gaze never left Xiang Shaoyun, as though he was afraid that Xiang Shaoyun would take advantage of the injured woman. Xiang Shaoyun couldn't be bothered with him as he absorbed the devilish energy that had invaded the woman's body.

After a while, he set the woman down and walked toward the other injured disciples. He said, "I can cleanse the devilish energy in your body. Don't resist."

Something about his voice caused all the injured disciples to believe in him, allowing him to easily absorb the devilish energy in their bodies. The others felt their horizons expand after witnessing this.

Additionally, Xiang Shaoyun even demonstrated the Secret Reversal Technique and used the profundity of wood to replenish the injured disciples' vitality, greatly healing their injuries.

When he was finished, he stopped and said, "Done. They should be fine now."

Jiang Qi stepped forth and said gratefully, "We're really lucky to meet you. I don't know how to thank you."

Xiang Shaoyun smiled. "We are friends, so don't worry about it. You should move somewhere else. Since a battle just ended here, more devils might come here soon."

"Um. We'll find a different location," answered Jiang Qi with a nod. "You came alone?"

"Kind of," answered Xiang Shaoyun.

"Then...do you want to join us?" asked Jiang Qi expectantly.
