The newcomer was none other than Xiang Shaoyun. It only took a short instant for him and Chen Zilong to reach Cloud Margin Pavilion on the gold serpentine crocodile. Fortunately, he had arrived in time. Otherwise, both Xia Liuhui and Wang Zhenchuan would have died.
Young Lightning King was furious when he heard someone speaking to him like that. He turned around in anger and was faced with a massive gold serpentine crocodile emperor above him. The crocodile emanated a terrifying pressure that stirred fear into his heart.
The sight of the massive wide-opened jaws and the terrifying fangs shocked him so much he even took a step back. Xiang Shaoyun and Chen Zilong got off Jin Wo's back, and Jin Wo transformed back into a humanoid form and stood beside Xiang Shaoyun.
The only reason Young Lightning King was still alive was because Xiang Shaoyun had not given a command to kill. Otherwise, he would have been crocodile fodder by now.
"Boss (martial uncle)!" both Xia Liuhui and Wang Zhenchuan called out in surprise.
"Are you fine?" Xiang Shaoyun asked.
"We are fine, but Elder Zi was injured," said Xia Liuhui.
Xiang Shaoyun dashed over to Zi Changhe to check on him and found that his breathing was growing weak. Young Lightning King's palm attack was not weak at all; it had nearly killed Zi Changhe.
"Hang on there, senior brother!" Xiang Shaoyun said as he quickly fed him some of the spring water he had. He was using the spring water he had obtained off Devil Face at the Land of Soul Springs. Although the spring water was not as good as the king springs, it was still very good for healing.
"Who are you? You dare meddle in my affair?" said Young Lightning King, who was fuming when he noticed how Xiang Shaoyun was completely ignoring him. He did find the young man familiar, but he was unaware that he was Xiang Shaoyun.
At this time, an overseer among the group brought by Nan Huai said, "Young Lightning King, he is Xiang Shaoyun!"
"What, you are Xiang Shaoyun?" Young Lightning King cried out in shock.
"Very well. I have been looking for you far and wide for you to just appear before me. Today, I will take you back to Lightning Emperor!" said Nan Huai, eager to prove himself to his master. He then rushed at Xiang Shaoyun.
Beside Xiang Shaoyun, Chen Zilong merely sneered, "What an idiot."
Only then did Nan Huai notice Chen Zilong. He quickly said, "Young Master Chen, this has nothing to do with you. This kid has offended Lightning Emperor and will not be allowed to live."
He then continued on toward Xiang Shaoyun. At this time, Jin Wo stepped forward and blocked Nan Huai's path. There was contempt in Jin Wo's eyes.
Nan Huai pointed at Jin Wo and berated, "Piss off, gold serpentine crocodile!"
He thought that Jin Wo was merely a Demon King unworthy of his attention. Jin Wo did not say anything, but he remained standing like an unmoving iron tower.
"Looks like you won't know what's good for you if you are not taught a lesson," said Nan Huai furiously before sending a punch at Jin Wo.
He placed a lot of might behind the punch, clearly intending to defeat Jin Wo with one hit. However, Jin Wo caught his fist before it hit.
"A pathetically weak human," said Jin Wo with a smile before he twisted his wrist, snapping Nan Huai's arm.
A wail akin to a pig being slaughtered came out of Nan Huai's mouth, shocking everyone. Jin Wo followed up with a kick, sending Nan Huai flying more than 10 meters away. Nan Huai crashed heavily into the ground. There, he lay weakly like a dead dog no longer capable of standing up.
The people that had arrived with Nan Huai quickly pulled away, fear covering their faces. They all looked at Young Lightning King, seemingly waiting for him to do something to punish the transgression.
"Impudent! You dare create trouble in the pavilion grounds? Are you looking down on the Cloud Margin Pavilion?" shouted Young Lightning King, trying to borrow the prestige of the pavilion to pressure Xiang Shaoyun.
He was a second-stage Skysoar Realm cultivator capable of punching above his weight to battle those at the fifth stage. However, that was not enough to give him the confidence to face this gold serpentine crocodile. For some reason, this gold serpentine crocodile gave him an extremely familiar feeling, as if they had met somewhere before.
"Xiang Shaoyun, gold serpentine crocodile..." Young Lightning King started searching for any information he had in his brain about the two before him.
Meanwhile, Xiang Shaoyun called Xia Liuhui and Wang Zhenchuan over and said, "Liuhui, Zhenchuan, help my senior brother back into the estate so that he can heal himself. I will deal with this."
"Boss, I think it is better if we leave this place immediately," persuaded Xia Liuhui.
"That's right. You are very hated in the Cloud Margin Pavilion currently. That's why we are currently the targets of suppression," said Wang Zhenchuan.
"Don't worry. I can handle this. Nobody will dare to kick you out of the Cloud Margin Pavilion. In fact, nobody will dare touch even one of your hairs," declared Xiang Shaoyun overbearingly.
"What boastful words," said Young Lightning King before he commanded the others, "Go. Kill all of them!"
Young Lightning King was a very cautious person. He was commanding everyone to attack so that they could probe Jin Wo's actual strength for him. They were aware of Jin Wo's strength. After all, Nan Huai had been sent flying so easily. How would they be his match?
But since Young Lightning King had given the command, they had no choice but to carry it out. However, none of them were idiots. They all stayed at range and attacked from afar. Over 10 attacks went flying toward Jin Wo.
They all struck Jin Wo, creating a series of explosions that created a mess out of his surroundings. But by the time all the dust settled, Jin Wo still stood there completely unharmed.
He sneered, "That is not enough to even scratch my itch. What a bunch of useless humans. Come, have a taste of this."
Right after saying that, he spat a clump of golden energy out of his mouth. The golden energy split into numerous snakes that instantly arrived before the group of humans. Before they could even realize what was happening, they lost consciousness. Blood sprayed everywhere, blooming like a group of terrifying crimson flowers. Fear filled Young Lightning King's face. Without a second thought, he started fleeing at the fastest speed possible.
Unfortunately for him, he wasn't able to go far before Jin Wo appeared before him. With a smile, Jin Wo said, "Without his highness's approval, you are not allowed to leave."
He then reached for Young Lightning King, who wasn't able to resist, and catching him, slammed him helplessly into the ground.
A loud rumble rang out in the air as a human-shaped hole formed in the ground.Previous Chapter Next Chapter
