Book 2, Chapter 161 - Seed of Calamity

The surrounding people all stared at Bai Zhanfeng in shock. No one expected Bai Zhanfeng to demand something like this.

Not only Zhao Jiuge, but even the other five people from the Liu family all looked at Liu Yen. They wanted to see how Liu Yen would deal with this situation.

Liu Yen’s expression was somewhat complex. He calmed down a lot compared to before after hearing the demand. Nothing was worse than death—as long as he kept his life, he could start over again. With this thought in mind, his heart relaxed. Facing death, he found other things much easier to accept.

Liu Yen didn’t immediately answer, but he was weighing the pros and cons.

Cutting off an arm was not as big of a big deal for him as it was for ordinary people. As he cultivated, he could slowly grow out a new arm. After all, he was at the Nascent Soul Realm, and as long as his nascent soul wasn’t destroyed, he could abandon his flesh at any time and condense a new body.

However, this would cause his cultivation to drop and he would have to cultivate for a long time to recover before he could make another breakthrough.

Liu Yen clenched his teeth and there was a flash of determination in his eyes. There was no hesitation and he immediately moved. After losing his spirit force, his movements were slower, but he turned and grabbed Liu Ting’s yellow shortsword with his right hand.

The sound of a blade cutting flesh echoed and an arm flew off into the sky. It fell down and landed on the ground with a muffled thud.

Dazzling blood spewed out from Liu Yen’s shoulder and scattered on the ground.


A sharp cry echoed, but it didn’t come from Liu Yen’s mouth.

Liu Ting had never seen such a bloody scene before and screamed in fear.

Zhao Jiuge couldn’t help but suck in a breath of cold air. This Liu Yen was simply too vicious, even to himself.

Enduring the pain from his shoulder, Liu Yen didn’t dare to show any hint of dissatisfaction. He respectfully said, “Is Senior satisfied? Do you have any other commands?”

Because his nascent soul was sealed, Liu Yen wasn’t able to use any spirit force. This caused blood to still occasionally flow out from the wound on his shoulder.

Bai Zhanfeng was used to more bloody scenes than this and was not affected at all. He indifferently said, “I admire you a bit. Very decisive! If a man wants to stand firm, then he must be able to act decisively!”

At this point, Bai Zhanfeng stopped for a moment and smiled. “Seeing how decisive you are, I won’t make it difficult for you. Now scram!”

Hearing that, Liu Yen was finally able to relax. He knew that their lives were saved. A master at the Spirit Sea Realm wouldn’t lie to them. Although he still felt pain from his shoulder, the only thing he was focused on at this moment was how lucky he was to escape death.

Liu Yen took a deep breath and looked like he wanted to say something. However, he seemed a bit afraid and didn’t say a word.

Bai Zhanfeng glanced at Liu Yen and calmly said, “The force suppressing your spirit force will dissipate soon and you will be able to use your spirit force again.”

Liu Yen and company’s eyes were filled with joy. Although seriously injured, as long as they could cultivate, they could recover. What could be more fortunate than escaping from a Spirit Sea Realm cultivator?

“Senior, then… we can go?” Liu Yen was filled with joy and a hint of disbelief.

“Get out of here.” Bai Zhanfeng seemed to be too lazy to waste more time talking to Liu Yen.

The six of them quickly moved their feet with a hint of disbelief and fear. They glanced at Bai Zhanfeng a few times before walking toward the exit of the canyon.

“By the way, if your whatever Liu family wants revenge, just come. I, Bai Zhanfeng, am waiting.”

When Liu Yen’s group was about to leave, Bai Zhanfeng suddenly smiled and his bold voice echoed. This startled the already-frightened group.

“We don’t dare… We don’t dare… This time, we were in the wrong to begin with. Senior, if there is nothing else, we’ll leave first,” Liu Yen quickly replied, and after seeing no reaction from Bai Zhanfeng, he protected Liu Ting and Liu Yan while they left.

However, while leaving, Liu Yan looked back at Zhao Jiuge several times. He had a venomous gaze in his eyes.

Unknowingly, because Bai Zhanfeng had let the tiger back into the mountains, he had planted a seed of calamity for Zhao Jiuge when he traveled the world in the future.

After Liu Yen’s group left, Bai Zhanfeng revealed a mocking smile. At his level, how could he not instantly see through what kind of people they were?

It has to be said that one’s nature was difficult to change.


Outside the canyon.

After determining they had walked far enough, Liu Yen’s expression immediately became gloomy.

Aunt Tao softly said, “Elder Liu, are we just going to let this be?”

Liu Yen hatefully said, “What else can we do? We can only take the loss. After all, the family will not offend a Spirit Sea Realm expert for us.”

Then he suddenly changed the subject. “However… While we can’t afford to mess with Bai Zhanfeng and his niece, we are more than capable of dealing with that brat.”

There was a flash of light in Liu Yan’s eyes. He ignored the weakness in his body and happily said, “Elder Liu has to take me with you. If I don’t get my revenge, I won’t be able to rid myself of this anger. Once we go back, we’ll go check that brat’s background. The little bitch from the main family is also at the Mysterious Heaven Sword Sect.”

This time, Liu Yen didn’t speak and only nodded. He led them out of the canyon and toward the Liu family’s land in the Qing Province.

They had come here in good spirits but left in defeat. They were also all seriously injured.


Back inside the canyon.

“Second Uncle, are you just going to let them go?” Bai Qingqing asked in shock.

Bai Zhanfeng dotingly looked at his niece. He wouldn’t treat his beloved niece like other people.

He rubbed Bai Qingqing’s head and smiled. “Then, what do you want me to do?”

“Kill!” Killing intent spread out from Bai Qingqing’s body. Although it was only one word, her aura was shocking. She was worthy of being someone from the Bai family.

Bai Zhanfeng helplessly smiled. After pausing for a moment, he slowly said, “Qingqing, a girl shouldn’t always be talking about killing. Also, although they were arrogant, they are not evil people, so there is no need to kill.”

Knowing that what her second uncle had said was right, Bai Qingqing pouted and angrily said, “Okay.”

Bai Zhanfeng whispered, “What? Are you unhappy with your second uncle’s method?”

“Yes, but I’ll give you a chance to make up for it.” A smile suddenly appeared on Bai Qingqing’s face.

Honestly, she was satisfied with how the situation was handled, and this was the best way. However, it had been a while since she encountered an elder from her family and she just wanted to act spoiled for a bit.

Bai Qingqing finally said, “That’s to help Zhao Jiuge absorb the slaughter aura and protect him.”
