The Devil Blood Society elder's name was Mo Deng, a peak eighth-stage Skysoar Realm expert. The reason why he was so hostile to Xiang Shaoyun was because Devil Face was a genius from his faction. Thus, he resented Xiang Shaoyun for having killed Devil Face.
"Elder He Luo, are you helping Xiang Shaoyun or are you helping the Devil Blood Society? How can you suggest something like that?" yelled the unhappy Liang Zhuangmin.
"You dare question me? My suggestion is beneficial for everyone in the Cloud Margin Pavilion. This has nothing to do with you disciples. Stand aside," berated He Luo.
He Luo had been appointed the leader of their group and held absolute authority over them. Thus, although many were unhappy with his unfair treatment of Xiang Shaoyun, everyone kept silent.
Xiang Shaoyun glanced at He Luo and Mo Deng before he sneered and said, "Are you two old dogs done? If you are done, scram!"
Those words caused the faces of Mo Deng and He Luo to turn unsightly.
"I'll slaughter you!" Mo Deng howled and attacked immediately.
He slammed his black palm at Xiang Shaoyun, unleashing an attack that was most certainly beyond Xiang Shaoyun's ability to defend against. Liang Zhuangmin and Hua Honglou grew anxious as neither of them wanted to see anything bad happen to Xiang Shaoyun. Unfortunately, both of them were too weak to be of any help to him right now.
Just as the palm was about to hit Xiang Shaoyun, Mo Deng sensed a certain force blasting into his mind. A sharp pain suddenly assailed his head, causing him to stop attacking and to grip his head and wail in pain.
"You want to kill me, old dog? Let me kill you first!" Xiang Shaoyun roared.
He attacked with the Seven Scorching Sun Claws, clawing Mo Deng's chest with an intense flame energy suffused in his claws. The claws tore through Mo Deng's clothes before leaving several bloody gashes on his chest. Strands of Yun Flame's power started swirling about Mo Deng's body.
Suffering pain both in his soul and on his physical body, Mo Deng wailed miserably as he tumbled about on the ground. In the blink of an eye, his entire body lit up, turning him into a man of fire. Those from the Devil Blood Society were greatly alarmed. They all rushed at Xiang Shaoyun, trying to kill him and save Mo Deng.
"You all want to die? Fine. I'll send all of you to the afterlife," said Xiang Shaoyun with a ruthless smile on his face.
An incorporeal soul power separated into five and shot toward the Devil Blood Society's five elders.. The attacks hit their souls at the same time, putting them in so much pain the only thing they could do was howl in agony.
Xiang Shaoyun seized the opening and drew his Purple Lightning Saber before swinging it at all five of them. A bright flash glided through the air, and five heads separated from their bodies. The five headless corpses collapsed onto the ground, forming a puddle of blood beneath them.
The entire area sank into silence as everyone else watched on in stupefaction and disbelief with their eyes opened wide. A young Transformation Realm cultivator had severed five Skysoar Realm heads with one slash? Was that real? Everyone rubbed their eyes repeatedly, finding it hard to believe what they were seeing.
But no matter how they rubbed their eyes, the five corpses remained. The truth was presented right before them. As for Mo Deng, he had been burnt alive into ash. With that, all the elders sent here from the Devil Blood Society were dead.
When everyone looked at Xiang Shaoyun again, their eyes were filled with reverence while their breaths became hurried. Some became anxious, especially He Luo who had stepped on Xiang Shaoyun while he was down earlier. His entire body went cold, as if he had entered an ice cave. He felt terrible.
T-this is not true! How can he be so strong? He Luo shouted inwardly.
After dealing with the Devil Blood Society elders, Xiang Shaoyun's gaze landed on He Luo. An intense murderous intent surged out of him as he said, "Old dog, come and accept your death!"
"No, you can't kill me! I am a high-level elder of the inner pavilion! Furthermore, we have no quarrel!" said He Luo while stepping back repeatedly. He had completely lost his courage.
"Sure, I can spare you. But you need to kowtow to me and apologize," said Xiang Shaoyun.
That was what He Luo had wanted Xiang Shaoyun to do earlier. But now, Xiang Shaoyun was making him do the same. In a way, that was his retribution.
"I...I..." He Luo had an unsightly expression.
After some hesitation, he flew toward the sky and roared with laughter before saying, "Xiang Shaoyun, you bastard! First, you disrespect your elders. And now, you even want to kill me? After returning to the Cloud Margin Pavilion, I will get the pavilion master to expel you from the pavilion!"
After saying that, he turned to flee. He believed that even if Xiang Shaoyun possessed some secret killing techniques, he wouldn't be able to catch up with him in terms of speed. After all, Xiang Shaoyun was only a Transformation Realm cultivator.
"You think you can escape me? How naive," said Xiang Shaoyun with a sneer.
A gust of soul power rushed out of his head and immediately drilled into He Luo's head.
Accompanied by a wail, He Luo dropped to the ground. Xiang Shaoyun advanced and leaped toward him before swinging the Purple Lightning Saber at his waist.
He Luo's body was split into two, his blood spilling everywhere. Xiang Shaoyun's face was dyed red with blood, looking like a dreadful god of death.
"Anyone else want to take their revenge on me? Come!" said Xiang Shaoyun after wiping the bloodstain on his face.
As of this moment, he was akin to a young king, his dominance spreading throughout the area. Not one person dared to stand against him. Amid the Cloud Margin Pavilion group, Lightning Kid was greatly shocked as he thought to himself, How is he so strong? Had he reached the Skysoar Realm long ago? Or is he some old freak that has regained his youth and has only revealed his true strength now?
The same thought crossed the minds of many people, including Wu Longfei and Devil Fairy. who had once fought Xiang Shaoyun. Otherwise, they couldn't understand why Xiang Shaoyun was capable of fighting the two of them all by himself in the Land of Soul Springs.
Alas, all of them were wrong. None of them knew that an old freak like Devouring Ghost existed within Xiang Shaoyun's head.
"Is this really Brother Yun? He is so strong!" Liang Zhuangmin cried out in astonishment.
"Yeah, he suddenly feels so far away," Hua Honglou said, suddenly feeling inferior facing him.
"A lot of Dragon Ascension Realm cultivators are heading this way," Devouring Ghost suddenly told Xiang Shaoyun.
"Emperors? Have they finally arrived?" Xiang Shaoyun suddenly had a bad premonition.
"Leave!" He decided to flee.
Unfortunately, before he could do that, those people arrived, stopping in the sky above them.Previous Chapter Next Chapter
