Zi Changhe had ignited his fate star, successfully becoming a true King. A large amount of surplus astral energy from his breakthrough still lingered in the estate. Suddenly, the surplus astral energy started converging at Xiang Shaoyun's room.
Both Long Hui and Zi Changhe were Skysoar Realm cultivators and could clearly sense it happening. Astral energy was formless, and cultivators below the Transformation Realm were generally unable to sense its existence.
"What a powerful strength!" Zi Changhe cried out in alarm. He could sense that the gathered energy was no less powerful than his cultivation base of Skysoar Realm. In fact, the gathered energy seemed even more powerful than his.
"It's happening in young master's room!" said Long Hui.
Zi Changhe looked at Long Hui in astonishment as he thought, Elder Long Hui is addressing Shaoyun as young master? Looks like Shaoyun really has a lot of secrets.
Long Hui did not mind Zi Changhe finding out about his relationship with Xiang Shaoyun. After all, he could see that Xiang Shaoyun was rather close with Zi Changhe.
In the room, three different energies were swirling around Xiang Shaoyun's body. The colors of the three energies were respectively purple, gold, and red, their combination giving Xiang Shaoyun an incredibly divine look.
A massive amount of astral energy was being drawn into Xiang Shaoyun's body. The energy coursed through his meridians, roaring unendingly like a dragon, greatly strengthening all nine of his stars.
After an unknown amount of time, the area was finally emptied of astral energy. As for Xiang Shaoyun, he had grown once again. He was now an eighth-stage Transformation Realm cultivator. In the Cloud Margin Pavilion, this cultivation level placed him among the ranks of the middle-class members.
But considering Xiang Shaoyun's age of only 17 years old, this cultivation level made him an absolute freak. On top of that, he had been able to defeat Kings when he was a seventh-stage Transformation Realm cultivator. Now that he had advanced a stage, his combat prowess would be even more terrifying.
Xiang Shaoyun stood up and a pair of white tiger wings unfurled from his back. He lightly flapped the wings, causing the power of gold to ripple about in the air around him.
"With the increase of my strength, controlling the White Tiger Wings ability has become much easier as well," said the satisfied Xiang Shaoyun. He then withdrew the wings before striding out of his room.
He had sensed a different energy fluctuation that was very powerful earlier. In his Nether Soul Domain, the scene of Zi Changhe igniting his fate star had appeared as well. In fact, what his Nether Soul Domain showed him wasn't the sight of Zi Changhe breaking through in the room. Rather, it showed him the sight of Zi Changhe's soul up in the sky igniting his fate star. The sight of it gave Xiang Shaoyun an extremely wondrous sensation.
Being able to witness something like that was definitely beneficial for his own cultivation. To think about it, witnessing the process of someone igniting a fate star would be very helpful for when it was his turn to ignite his fate star in the future.
Xiang Shaoyun did not spend too much time thinking about it as he could see Zi Changhe and Long Hui walking toward him.
"Congratulations, senior brother for ascending into a King," Xiang Shaoyun congratulated sincerely.
Zi Changhe was only about 30 years old. Being such a young King, he would most likely become a new sensation in the Cloud Margin Pavilion soon. Although he couldn't compare with the freaks of the pavilion, he was definitely far more outstanding than many of the ordinary disciples. The talent he was displaying was enough for him to obtain a considerable amount of resources from the pavilion to support his further growth.
Zi Changhe laughed happily, "Hahaha, this is all thanks to you. If you need anything from me in the future, I will not think twice before helping."
"Don't worry about it, senior brother. You better go break the good news to Elder Liu. I believe he will be very happy as well," said Xiang Shaoyun.
Zi Changhe nodded and left without any hesitation.
After Zi Changhe left, Long Hui handed the written challenge to Xiang Shaoyun and said, "Young master, this is the written challenge sent by the vice alliance leader of the Lightning Alliance, Huo Linfei."
A look of astonishment covered Xiang Shaoyun's face as he accepted the written challenge. With a faint smile, he said, "Looks like the Lightning Alliance still has a death wish. Fine, if he wants a fight, we fight."
He then crushed the written challenge. When he did that, a strand of flame energy shot out before forming the word "battle" in the air. It was clear provocation. With a casual wave of his hand, Xiang Shaoyun erased the word nonchalantly. He showed no fear whatsoever toward the flame.
"Issue a reply on my behalf. I shall fight him to the death in the arena tomorrow," said Xiang Shaoyun.
"Yes, young master," Long Hui replied.
Xiang Shaoyun then washed himself up before heading toward Elder Long Hui's estate to visit Lu Xiaoqing, Xia Liuhui, and Wang Zhenchuan. But when he arrived, He Can told him the three had gone to the limit rooms to cultivate.
A gratified look covered Xiang Shaoyun's face as he said, "Finally, they are starting to push themselves. That's great."
The weaker the talent of a person, the harder that person should train. Only then would one have a decent future. Xiang Shaoyun did not bother waiting around for them. He returned to his estate and entered meditation again. He planned to first consolidate his new cultivation base before thinking of anything else. He also did not forget to keep cultivating the Nether Dragon Soul Curse to keep strengthening his soul power.
The day passed quickly. On the next day, Xiang Shaoyun got ready to face Huo Linfei in battle. He intended to teach this vice alliance leader a proper lesson. However, Long Hui had informed him that due to an urgent business, Huo Linfei had postponed the challenge. Xiang Shaoyun was stunned.
"But shouldn't he be ready to fight after issuing a challenge? He's fleeing without a fight? He has no class," grumbled Xiang Shaoyun gloomily.
He had just increased his cultivation level and was in the mood to have a good exercise. But his opponent had actually left the Cloud Margin Pavilion to avoid the fight, which annoyed him greatly.
While Xiang Shaoyun was feeling bored, some visitors arrived at his estate. The visitors were a handsome man and a beautiful woman. They were none other than Chen Zilong and Li Yaxuan. When the two walked together, they brightened the world around them with their radiance. It was very obvious that these two were extremely capable individuals.
Xiang Shaoyun flashed them a wide smile and said, "Welcome, senior brother and senior sister. How may I help you?"
"I am here to challenge you!" not one to mince his words, Chen Zilong went straight to the point. A raging battle intent could be seen in his eyes.
"What bullshit are you saying, Zilong?" Li Yaxuan berated Chen Zilong before looking at Xiang Shaoyun. She asked, "Xiang Shaoyun, have you entered the Skysoar Realm?"
Xiang Shaoyun blanked out before saying, "One is challenging me while the other is asking about my cultivation level. So which is it? Who should I answer first?"
"Ignore Zilong. He is just a battle fanatic. I'm asking a serious question," said Li Yaxuan.
Chen Zilong smiled and said, "Fine, after we finish talking business, let's have a fight."
Xiang Shaoyun replied, "I am not in the Skysoar Realm yet. But I just happened to be itching for a fight as well. I was supposed to fight Huo Linfei, but that kid fled before the fight. Since you are here, let's have a good fight!"
After saying that, Xiang Shaoyun cracked his knuckles, preparing to have a fight with Chen Zilong before talking about anything else.Previous Chapter Next Chapter
