"Anyone getting in my way will die!" Xiang Shaoyun gave an overbearing reply and finally drew his Purple Lightning Saber.
With a swipe of the saber, blood splashed everywhere, and a few people instantly collapsed, forming a pool of blood beneath them. Xiang Shaoyun then shifted his attention back to Lightning Kid, intending to finish the job.
Right this moment, a shout rang out, "Xiang Shaoyun, with my status as an elder, I command you to stop right now!"
That shout seemed to have worked and stopped Xiang Shaoyun from attacking. When he looked to the side, he saw an unknown old man. Looking at the elder token the old man was showing, he concluded that the man was most likely a King Realm expert who had suppressed his cultivation base to enter the Land of Soul Springs.
Apart from the old man, there were two different individuals with unstable cultivation bases. They kept hovering between eighth-stage Transformation Realm and peak Transformation Realm, and it was evident they were also Kings who had suppressed their strength to enter.
"Tell him to stay away from me in the future. He won't be this lucky each time," said Xiang Shaoyun.
"Those are big words. Do you even know who Lightning Kid is? He is the personal disciple of the vice pavilion master, Lightning King, and his big brother is the renowned Young Lightning King. If you get on your knees, beg for his forgiveness, and hand over the treasure you had gotten earlier, we might consider begging for leniency on your behalf," said the person holding the elder token.
Xiang Shaoyun raised his brow and said in astonishment, "You want me to kneel down and apologize to him?"
"That's right. As an elder, I command you to do so. Otherwise, you will no longer be allowed to remain in the Cloud Margin Pavilion," the elder said with a harsh tone.
The person beside the elder echoed the same sentiment, "He is right. Apologize to the young master, or you won't be able to remain in the Cloud Margin Pavilion any longer."
Xiang Shaoyun faced the sky and roared with laughter, "HAHAHAHAHA...."
His laugh was filled with contempt, causing the faces of the two to turn unsightly.
"You must be sick," Xiang Shaoyun said with disdain.
Trying to suppress him with just the identity of an elder was nothing but a joke. Not even the pavilion master could hope to make Xiang Shaoyun bend his knees. A man should never lightly bend his knees. In any case, with Xiang Shaoyun's status, just some King Realm cultivators would not be able to suppress him.
The two Kings were furious.
"Xiang Shaoyun, today, I shall clean the pavilion of the trash that is you!" said one of the elders who could no longer hold himself back.
Although the elder's cultivation base was suppressed, he was still confident he could easily defeat Xiang Shaoyun. Unfortunately for him, he had underestimated Xiang Shaoyun. Against this opponent, Xiang Shaoyun couldn't even be bothered to draw his saber. He simply met the King with a punch.
The two fists connected, followed by a crisp crack. The punch deformed the elder's hand, causing him to wail in pain as he gripped it. Xiang Shaoyun did not stop at that. He followed up with a kick, sending the elder flying away.
"With your talent, you should be grateful you even managed to enter the Skysoar Realm. Yet you dare to act all tough before this young master? You really don't know what's good for you," said Xiang Shaoyun, intense derision in his voice. Although the elder was a Skysoar Realm cultivator, his cultivation had been suppressed, and he was currently at the same realm as Xiang Shaoyun.
Xiang Shaoyun was a person capable of defeating even Lightning Kid, the one known as the number one under Skysoar Realm in the Cloud Margin Pavilion, whereas this elder wasn't at all a remarkable cultivator during his time as a Transformation Realm cultivator. Thus, he was completely not Xiang Shaoyun's match when the two were in the same realm.
The two other elders were tempted to make a move when they saw Xiang Shaoyun beating their companion, but they forced themselves to stop upon witnessing Xiang Shaoyun's might.
One of them bellowed, "Xiang Shaoyun, what are you doing? You are offending your superiors! You will be punished by the pavilion for this!"
Xiang Shaoyun dug his ear lazily and said, "Since when am I a member of Cloud Margin Pavilion? You must be sick in the head."
Although Xiang Shaoyun was staying in the Cloud Margin Pavilion, he did not actually have an official relationship with the pavilion. At most, he could only be considered a guest. If it weren't for the fact that a few of his close friends were in the pavilion and Hua Cheng had given him an estate, he would have probably left by now.
"Well well, you are indeed a thankless wretch. Just you wait to suffer the pavilion's fury," said the elder furiously.
"Do you want to have a taste of my fury?" said Xiang Shaoyun with a frown.
That greatly frightened the elder who then quickly stepped away. He lifted Lightning Kid before telling his companions, "We'll leave for now. This madman will naturally be taught a lesson in the future."
They left as fast as they could, and not a single one of the other Lightning Alliance members dared to stay either. They all withdrew. Their departure did not signify the end of Xiang Shaoyun's troubles. Four other people were already surrounding him.
"What do you want?" Xiang Shaoyun asked coldly.
Each of them was equipped with a sword, and from their outfit, they were obviously members of the Myriad Sword Sect.
In reality, they were the four great overseers of the Myriad Sword Sect. Each of them was a peak Transformation Realm expert, and they were well-versed in a sword formation named Minor Four Divisions Sword Formation.
The Minor Four Divisions Sword Formation was an exquisite sword formation. When used by those with great mastery over the formation, it would be able to display an extraordinary might.
These four just so happened to be capable of unleashing the prowess of this formation, and they had killed Skysoar Realm experts before with it. Because of that, they were also known as the Four Divinity Swords, which was an acknowledgment of their strength.
"Hand over the soul spring you got," demanded the leader of the four indifferently.
"How are you so sure I have any on me?" Xiang Shaoyun asked.
"Hmph. I personally saw you obtaining a strand of soul spring on the Moon Gazing Platform. Hand it over and you will be spared," said the leader coldly.
"What if I refuse?" Xiang Shaoyun asked.
The combat prowess he had shown during his battle with Lightning Kid earlier should be enough to ensure that many people would think twice before facing him. For these four to challenge him, they were obviously confident in their own strength. Or perhaps they had merely assumed that Xiang Shaoyun had been overly exhausted by the battle and would not be as strong anymore.
"You can refuse, but we will just take it ourselves," said the second in command.
Standing at the east, south, west, and north of Xiang Shaoyun, their aura surged out and locked Xiang Shaoyun in the middle of them. The people that were still around grew excited when they saw that a new fight was about to break out.
"It's the Four Divinity Swords from the Myriad Sword Sect! They are making a move on Xiang Shaoyun!"
"The Four Divinity Swords have killed even Skysoar Realm experts before with the terrifyingly powerful Minor Four Divisions Sword Formation."
"Xiang Shaoyun has just finished fighting Lightning Kid and his men. Can he even survive the onslaught of the Four Divinity Swords?"Previous Chapter Next Chapter
