What had Xiang Shaoyun seen that angered him so much? Not far ahead of him, a group of people was beating up Tang Longfei.
"You really think your Overlord Legion is that big of a deal? In the eyes of the Flaming Sun, you guys are merely a bunch of small fries!" said the group's leader. As he said that, he stepped on Tang Longfei, who had been subdued by the others in the group.
Tang Longfei was completely helpless as the leader stepped on his head and pressed his face into the ground. His entire body was filled with wounds, yet the other party was still doing this to him. It was obvious they did not intend to show him any mercy.
The people who had caught Tang Longfei were none other than members of the Flaming Sun. There were five of them in total, with the leader being a third-stage Dragon Ascension Realm cultivator. Two of them were at the second stage, while the other two were at the first stage. They were a rather powerful group. It was understandable why Tang Longfei wasn't their match.
What Xiang Shaoyun couldn't understand was the reason for the Flaming Sun to suddenly target the Overlord Legion. However, he did not waste any time thinking. He charged over and shouted, "Release him, or all of you shall suffer!"
A look of astonishment covered their faces when they saw Xiang Shaoyun. They had not expected to see him. The group's leader, Jin Yanyan, was ranked 97th on the Dragon Phoenix List. He sneered at Xiang Shaoyun and said, "Even the overlord of the Overlord Legion is here? This will be fun."
With his face pressed against the ground, Tang Longfei couldn't say anything and could only yell inwardly, Shaoyun, you need to be careful!
Xiang Shaoyun did not bother saying anything else to them. He shot over at a rapid speed before noiselessly sending a finger beam toward Jin Yanyan. His first priority was to free Tang Longfei.
Vicious Prison Finger!
The finger beam was fast and powerful, an attack that was extremely difficult to guard against. However, Jin Yanyan stood his ground and sent a golden palm out, slapping the beam away. But by the time he stopped the first beam, Xiang Shaoyun had already sent five additional beams forward, layering all of them to form an incomparably sharp attack.
"Just a tiny trick," said Jin Yanyan with disdain as he repeatedly palmed the beam attacks, scattering them all.
Of course, the beam attacks were merely a distraction. By the time all the beams were stopped, Xiang Shaoyun had already arrived before the group of five. He instantly erupted in power and threw a dreadful fist forward. Nine-colored radiance converged around his fist as one star after another formed around it.
One punch to overturn the cosmos, one punch to obliterate the myriad daos!
The punch, which seemed so powerful it was in defiance of the natural order, shot forward and unleashed a nine-colored energy that rushed Jin Yanyan and his companions. The group could sense a seemingly unstoppable fist coming at them, and it completely shattered their confidence.
"Fight with everything you have!" Jin Yanyan roared to his companions as he erupted with full power.
Thousand Dropping Gold!
Numerous pieces of gold appeared around him, as if the sky was raining chunks of gold. With this attack, he displayed a prowess comparable to a peak sixth-stage or even an early seventh-stage Dragon Ascension Realm cultivator. The others also fought back with their full strength. A bright and multicolored wave of energy rippled out, destroying all the golden stones in their surroundings. However, Xiang Shaoyun's Cosmos Dao Destroying Fist crushed everything they released.
Sounds of explosion rumbled on and on, startling the other people in the area who thought that the goldmen were attacking again. The collision flattened the ground around them, and the only reason a crater didn't form was due to the toughness of the golden stones that made up the ground.
When the energy from the collision dissipated, numerous figures were sent flying in different directions, each spraying blood everywhere. The figures were none other than Jin Yanyan and his group. As for Xiang Shaoyun, he stood where he was, completely unharmed and indifferent.
He ignored them and rushed toward Tang Longfei. The impact of the collision had buried Tang Longfei under a large number of golden stones. Xiang Shaoyun quickly dug him out, and when he sensed that Tang Longfei was still alive, his worry eased. He said, "Big Brother Tang, hang on there!"
He then fed Tang Longfei a drop of healing spring liquid. As Tang Longfei swallowed the drop of emperor-grade spring, the power of the spring spread throughout his body and nourished his injuries.
Xiang Shaoyun then brought him to the side so Tang Longfei could meditate and focus on healing. Money was also released to stand guard beside Tang Longfei. As for Xiang Shaoyun himself, he flew toward Jin Yanyan. Although he had not killed Jin Yanyan and the others, they wouldn't be able to get back on their feet anytime soon.
Arriving before the badly wounded Jin Yanyan, he stepped on Jin Yanyan's face and questioned, "Why are you attacking the Overlord Legion? Do you think we can be bullied so easily?"
Jin Yanyan was having a terrible day. He was two stages higher than Xiang Shaoyun in cultivation, and he also knew that Xiang Shaoyun cultivated nine different powers. Someone like that shouldn't be able to display the power of his nine stars, yet what actually happened was completely different from what he had believed. Xiang Shaoyun's earlier attack was proof he could utilize all nine stars at the same time.
From that, it could be seen that Xiang Shaoyun had created his own path, fusing the powers of his nine stars to unleash the prowess of his physique. It was a miracle that would leave a mark in history. And Jin Yanyan had actually offended someone so scary. Not even the Flaming Sun would be able to keep him safe against such an enemy, but he couldn't turn back time, so he could only face it.
"Y-you're the one who has offended someone you shouldn't!" Jin Yanyan said weakly.
"Huh? Li Li is the only person from the Flaming Sun that I have met before. Is it her? Or is it someone else I have defeated?" Xiang Shaoyun asked in confusion.
"No, the person you have offended is the Green Youth," Jin Yanyan answered.
"Green Youth Ye Linshan?" Xiang Shaoyuna asked in astonishment.
"Yes!" Jin Yanyan answered. "Since you've already vented your anger, c-can you let me go?"
"Hmph. After injuring my brother, don't even dream of leaving so easily. Pay for the damages you did, or don't blame me for showing no mercy," said Xiang Shaoyun coldly.
Jin Yanyan knew he had no other choice, so he took out an emperor medicine to buy his freedom. Unfortunately, Xiang Shaoyun still refused to free him. Only after taking even more emperor-grade items from him did Xiang Shaoyun release them.
"Go back and tell the Green Youth to stop thinking about my woman or nothing good will come out of it," warned Xiang Shaoyun.Previous Chapter Next Chapter
