The newcomers were none other than Han Chenfei and the Han Clan sisters of the Glacier Palace. Behind them was a group of about 20 people. They looked rather pitiful in comparison with Xiang Shaoyun's large group.
Han Chenfei was the number two beauty of the academy with great rallying power. Unfortunately, she only recruited ice and water cultivators into her faction. Thus, her Glacier Palace had never been able to grow past a certain stage.
This time, the Glacier Palace had suffered heavy losses. Many of their members had been eliminated, while some were still missing. As the young palace master, she only had this small group of people by her side. If this continued, it was only a matter of time before the Glacier Palace was completely eliminated from the battleground. As the leader, Han Chenfei would lose her prestige, and the Glacier Palace would continue declining.
Han Chenfei had not expected that she would encounter the Overlord Legion here. The Glacier Palace had a decent relationship with the Overlord Legion, and they once had a cooperative relationship. Thus, she naturally hoped to form an alliance with them.
However, the Overlord Legion actually left the moment they met. With her sharp eyes, Han Chenfei could see that Xiang Shaoyun was leading the group. She immediately shouted, "Xiang Shaoyun, wait."
Xiang Shaoyun acted like he heard nothing and continued walking. Inwardly, he was still angry with Han Chenfei and the sisters. It wasn't that he was petty, but he was hurt pretty badly by what they had done.
Han Chenfei increased her speed and stood before Xiang Shaoyun. She said, "Xiang Shaoyun, I know you're still angry with us, but we are aware of our mistake. Will you accept my apology?"
This was the first time she was speaking in such a tone. A look of sadness covered her face as though she was on the verge of tears. When the Overlord Legion and Glacier Palace members saw it, they were filled with admiration toward Xiang Shaoyun as they thought, The Overlord lives up to his reputation. Even the number two beauty has yielded to him.
They all felt that Han Chenfei definitely harbored feelings for Xiang Shaoyun. Otherwise, she wouldn't act like this in front of him.
With complete indifference, Xiang Shaoyun said, "I accept your apology. We're still in the battleground, and we need to continue our hunt to earn more points. I don't have time to chat with you."
When Han Chenfei saw Xiang Shaoyun's attitude, she felt even sadder as she asked, "Don't you see me as a friend anymore?"
"Hehe, friend? I, Xiang Shaoyun, am not worthy," said Xiang Shaoyun with a ruthless sneer.
He then walked away, completely ignoring Han Chenfei.
"Young Master Xiang, please don't be angry with big sister. Blame us. We can accept any punishment," pleaded Han Qianwei.
Xiang Shaoyun had saved their lives many times, but the sisters had never known their place. They dreamed of being on equal footing with him, and aimed to be his women. Eventually, they found out how big the gap between them and him was. They deeply regretted their act of criticizing him during that incident.
To the side, Han Xuewei also begged, "Young Master Xiang, we know our mistake. Can you forgive us?"
The sisters weren't as alluring as Han Chenfei, but they were still rare beauties. For them to apologize like this in public, they were showing Xiang Shaoyun a great deal of respect. Unfortunately for them, Xiang Shaoyun remained unmoved. He said indifferently, "There is no need to talk like that. Your matters have nothing to do with me, so there is nothing to forgive. I'm busy, so I'll be taking my leave."
The sisters felt their bodies turn cold when they realized that Xiang Shaoyun was intending to draw a clear line between them.
Han Chenfei couldn't take it anymore and shouted furiously, "Are you still a man, Xiang Shaoyun? Why are you so petty?"
"Think what you want," replied Xiang Shaoyun nonchalantly.
He no longer cared about romance. Thus, what they thought no longer concerned him.
"You are not allowed to leave! I want you to pay your debt to me right now!" Han Chenfei shouted angrily.
Xiang Shaoyun stopped, turned, and said, "Say it. How do you want me to repay you?"
He knew what Han Chenfei was talking about. Back when he sought her help on behalf of the Han Clan sisters, he had owed her a favor. Although he had given them some of the treasures he had gotten from the iceberg, he did not consider it the repayment for that favor.
"The Glacier Palace wishes to form an alliance with the Overlord Legion. This alliance will last until we leave the battleground," said Han Chenfei.
Xiang Shaoyun's eyes flickered as he gave it a thought. He rejected it, "I refuse the alliance."
"You are breaking your promise!" Han Chenfei accused.
Xiang Shaoyun shook his head. "No. I want the Glacier Palace to merge with the Overlord Legion instead. You will be the deputy commander."
"What? That is not acceptable! Young palace master, let us leave. We don't need to beg him," said someone from the Glacier Palace.
The others also voiced the same sentiment. This was no different from stepping on them while they were down. Xiang Shaoyun did not care. He gazed at Han Chenfei calmly, awaiting her answer.
Han Chenfei had not expected that Xiang Shaoyun would take this chance to make such a request. Her anger vanished, replaced by complete calm. A smile formed on her face as she asked, "Are you sure?"
"Yes," Xiang Shaoyun confirmed.
"Fine. The Glacier Palace will join the Overlord Legion. From now on, the Glacier Palace is no more," Han Chenfei agreed straightforwardly.
The Glacier Palace members were stunned. They couldn't understand the reason for her decision. As for the Overlord Legion members, they were overjoyed. At present, they were facing enemies on all sides. With the inclusion of the Glacier Palace members, their strength would grow. Moreover, they would also gain the help of a freak like Han Chenfei. They would be much more confident in surviving the battleground.
Xiang Shaoyun had not expected Han Chenfei to agree. He took the chance to say, "Since you have agreed to join, you need to follow the rules of the Overlord Legion. Otherwise, don't blame me for showing no mercy."
A powerful aura burst out of his body. The aura was completely comparable to the aura of a peak Emperor. One could say that his aura was even slightly scarier. The Glacier Palace felt a pressure crushing down on them, causing them to suffocate.
Even Han Chenfei felt greatly pressured. She was greatly shocked as she thought, His strength has actually reached this level?
She waved her hand at the Glacier Palace members and said, "Everyone, come and greet the overlord. Of course, if anyone wants to leave now, I won't blame you."Previous Chapter Next Chapter
