Book 2, Chapter 158 - What is the Liu Family?

An elegant and tall middle-aged man in grey stood proudly in the sky.

Although he was middle-aged, he was still very elegant. His mature and steady temperament was better at attracting the gazes of some women.

He was wearing a clean and simple grey robe and had a quaint flying sword on his back. His gaze contained a bit of contempt while he looked at Liu Yen and the corner of his mouth was curved up. Then he took a profound look at Bai Qingqing. His face was a bit similar to Bai Qingqing’s!

Zhao Jiuge looked at the middle-aged man in confusion. Pain still filled his body, but he knew the situation had changed.

Liu Yen’s expression was ugly while he looked at the uninvited guest. He wasn’t sure of this person’s identity, but from those words and that gaze, he knew that this person was filled with hostility.

Liu Yen spat out a mouthful of foul air and then expressionlessly said, “I wonder, who are you?”

Although this was not very far from the Liu family’s territory, Liu Yen wasn’t able to detect this person’s cultivation. He could not even feel the tiniest spirit force fluctuation, so Liu Yen didn’t dare to act too arrogantly. Even a fool would know that being able to stand in the air like that meant that this person was at least at the Nascent Soul Realm. He also felt a sense of danger in his heart, like he was facing his natural predictor. However, he was not going to lose face, because he represented the behemoth that was the Qing Province’s Liu family.

When the middle-aged man appeared, Aunt Tao firmly protected Liu Ting behind her. Although she couldn’t feel any spirit force fluctuations, that sense of danger appeared in her heart as well.

Gao Li and Gao Zhuang immediately arrived behind Liu Yen with their blades in hand. The moment Liu Yen gave the order, they would make their move.

“Bai Zhanfeng.” The middle-aged man looked at Bai Qingqing and then turned back toward Liu Yen.

Bai Zhanfeng?

Liu Yan frowned even more, he tried hard to recall if there was someone named that in the Qing Providence. After thinking for a while he still couldn’t think of a person and this made him relax a bit.

Bai Qingqing looked at the elegant-looking man in the sky in disbelief and shouted, “Second Uncle!” She was filled with joy.

When Bai Zhanfeng calmly said his name, the powerful pressure Liu Yen had been exerting completely dissipated, but Bai Zhanfeng didn’t seem to do anything.

Without the pressure binding her, Bai Qingqing was able to shout.

Hearing Bai Qingqing calling him “Second Uncle” with red eyes and an aggrieved tone, the originally calm Bai Zhanfeng immediately arrived next to her.

His heart ached when he looked at his favorite niece. He revealed a doting expression and rubbed Bai Qingqing’s head. “Girl, you’re also an adult, but you are still crying. This is not the usual style of our little princess.”

Bai Zhanfeng’s voice was soft and he had a smile on his face. His eyes were filled with love toward Bai Qingqing, so much so that he had narrowed to almost a line.

“Annoying.” The originally red-eyed Bai Qingqing suddenly burst out in laughter. She gently hit Bai Zhanfeng’s sleeves like she was acting spoiled.

“Second Uncle, why are you here? Could something have happened back home?” Soon, Bai Qingqing controlled her emotions. She looked at Bai Zhanfeng with slight panic in her eyes.

Bai Zhanfeng laughed out loud and shook his head. “What could happen at home? Your dad is powerful and has those old fellows helping him, so there is nothing to worry about. It doesn’t matter if I’m there to help or not. Your dad is worried about you. Since you always clamored about seeing the Huaxia Dynasty, he wanted to let you come out here to play and lighten your mood. Ever since you left, I have been following you. When you’re at the sect, I stay outside. After all, I have to guard your safety. I don’t dare to enter the sect, as I can feel some hidden auras there that are extremely powerful.”

At the end, Bai Zhanfeng revealed a bitter smile.

Hearing Bai Zhanfeng’s explanation, Bai Qingqing heaved a sigh of relief and said, “That’s good. You scared me to death, I thought something had happened at home that made even you come.”

Bai Zhanfeng revealed a playful smile. “Don’t worry, with your second uncle here, I won’t let anyone bully our Bai family’s princess.”

Bai Qingqing’s face became red. At this moment, she stopped trying to act strong before her trusted second uncle and acted like a little girl.

After Bai Zhanfeng finished speaking, he raised his head and looked at Liu Yen with a somewhat cold gaze.

Zhao Jiuge stared at Bai Qingqing and the middle-aged man who looked similar to her. Second uncle?

This elegant middle-aged man was actually Bai Qingqing’s second uncle. Hearing that it was someone on their side, Zhao Jiuge relaxed. It looked like things were turning around. However, looking at the cold Bai Zhanfeng, he wondered if Bai Qingqing’s second uncle could beat the powerful people on the other side.

When Bai Qingqing called Bai Zhanfeng “Second Uncle,” Liu Yen felt his heart sink and a bad feeling soon shrouded his heart. However, he still had the Liu family behind him, so he didn’t panic too much.

However, he was thinking about how to end this matter. Originally, he was afraid of encountering a situation like this. That was why he hadn’t killed and only intended to teach them a lesson.

Liu Yen had a gloomy expression as he stared at Bai Zhanfeng. He still hoped that Bai Zhanfeng wouldn’t be too strong and would show some discretion while facing their side. He had not heard of the name Bai Zhanfeng.

Bai Zhanfeng smiled and asked in a calm voice, “Hehe, you tell me how you would deal with this situation.” It was not aggressive or grandiose, but this calm tone made Liu Yen and company panic even more.

Liu Yen first looked at Aunt Tao with a meaningful gaze. They only exchanged a brief glance with each other.

Aunt Tao nodded and then Liu Yen looked at Bai Zhenfang. His brows furrowed and he revealed a pondering expression.

“This matter is only a misunderstanding between the younger generations. There is no big problem and they didn’t go too far. How about we let this be?”

Liu Yan’s words slowly echoed. Although it didn’t look like he was losing, he was actually retreating.

Cultivators often fought due to slight misunderstandings. Right now, the situation wasn’t clear and he had the treasured young master and young lady from the branch Liu family. He didn’t dare to take any risks.

“Hehe…” Bai Zhanfeng coldly laughed. The meaning was self-evident.

“No way, Second Uncle, we can’t let this matter go. Look at how they beat up Jiuge. You have to teach them a lesson, especially that old fellow.” Bai Qingqing suddenly erupted in anger. She looked at Liu Yen with hatred in her eyes.

After she finished speaking, she arrived beside Zhao Jiuge and helped him wipe away the blood. She also gave him a Little Xuan Pill.

Bai Zhanfeng looked at the two of them meaningfully and silently pondered. He knew about how the two of them went on missions together.

He didn’t have any good feelings or bad feelings toward this brat. With his rich experience, he had seen many people who were willing to do anything to increase their strength or get treasures.

“Hmph, do you think what you say goes? Do you really think we are easy to bully!?” Facing the humiliation from Bai Qingqing’s words, Liu Yan didn’t speak. Instead, the tall Gao Li stepped forward and released his spirit force. From the pressure, he was actually at the mid stage of the Spirit Core Realm.

Liu Yen narrowed his eyes and deliberately made no sound. He remained silent because he wanted to probe Bai Zhanfeng.

Bai Zhanfeng was still as calm and carefree as ever. “That’s right, whatever I say goes.”

This scene was very familiar. Wasn't this what Liu Yen had said to Zhao Jiuge? Only now the roles were reversed.

Hearing this, Liu Yen was completely enraged. He had retreated again and again, but he didn’t expect the other party to go this far! His eyes were filled with anger and he let out a cold snort.

“Your excellency, we are from the Qing Province’s Liu family. This was just a fight between the younger generation and no one was seriously hurt. Even though I did end up making a move, I only taught the boy a lesson. Your niece is unscathed.”

Those light words from Liu Yen’s mouth contained a hint of threat. He looked at Bai Zhanfeng profoundly. He hoped that him mentioning the Liu family would cause Bai Zhanfeng to back down and not act so aggressively. However, he was soon disappointed because he didn’t see a trace of fear in the Bai Zhanfeng’s eyes.

Bai Zhenfeng raised his brows and calmly asked, “What’s the Liu family? Is it powerful?” It was his calm expression that made Liu Yen even more angry.

Bai Zhenfeng’s tone quickly changed. “Forget your Liu family, even if it were one of the so-called Holy Lands, if my niece wanted to deal with them, no one would be able to resist. No matter what she wants, I, her second uncle, have never refused her.”

At this point, Bai Zhenfang’s expression finally changed a little. The corner of his mouth curved up and he smiled at Liu Yen. “That’s why you’re definitely going to get beaten up today.”

His words were direct and simple, and they directly humiliated the Liu family. Liu Yen could not contain his anger anymore. He was going to teach this Bai Zhenfeng a lesson no matter what, and he didn’t care if Bai Zhenfeng had some kind of background or ace that made him not afraid of the Liu family.

At this moment, he just wanted to teach this Bai Zhenfeng a lesson, he couldn't care less about other things.

Liu Yen was at the mid stage of the Nascent Soul Realm. His eyebrows furrowed and he shouted, “Let’s go. Today, this old man wants to see what kind of skill you have to ignore my Liu family.”
