Chapter 651: Prevention

“Assistant headmaster Wu is here!”

Mo Chen cried out at once in joy, “Thank heavens! If he was late by even a second, those people would’ve been killed!”

From the side, Zhang Zhifeng spoke, “I’d assume the assistant headmaster Wu was actually here sooner and was watching the battle, he only took action when it seemed like instructor Bai was going to kill them….”

“Oh, really?” Mo Chen scratched his head, “I was going to say how timely he was….”

But Fang Tianmeng cried out then, “Ah!! Instructor Bai is attacking assistant headmaster Wu! Why is this happening?!”

Alarmed, everyone turned their heads just in time to see the Cataclysmic Seal fly towards the gray-robed person!

    ……

“Wuuaaah!! Bai Yunfei—have you gone mad?! What are you attacking me for?!”

The person who stopped Bai Yunfei from killing those people was the assistant headmaster Wu Dijian. He realized with a start that the brick was coming at him rather than the people he had just saved and slapped away the Cataclysmic Seal with a cry.

Because he was worried that the brick would hit the others if he dodged, he had no other choice but to forcefully stop the brick.

“Bang!!”

There was a loud bang as the mountain-sized Cataclysmic Seal was smacked down again.

It might’ve been a dangerous object to block for a Soul Exalt like Zhao Feng, but for Wu Dijian, he could do so without a problem.

While Wu Dijian stopped the Cataclysmic Seal with ease, the outcome didn’t leave him as well as he thought he’d be.

No sooner did his hand leave the Cataclysmic Seal did a burst of fire materialize out from the Cataclysmic Seal to wrap around his arm and then spread to the rest of his body!

+10 Additional effect of the Cataclysmic Seal: Flame Twister!

10% Chance to activate 'Flame Twister' and restrict the mobility of another by 10% for a maximum of ten seconds upon attacking.
Cooldown of 1 minute.

“What is this?!”

Wu Dijian stared at the spreading fire around his body—he couldn’t dispel the flames!! Even more shockingly, he could feel his body start to slow down when the fire touched him!

“What a strange flame!!”

Even with the long expanse of knowledge Wu Dijian had accumulated over his lifetime, he had never experienced something like this before in his life. The soulforce in this flame was strange beyond belief, and the flames persisted on his person for a moment before finally disappearing.

The Flame Twister usually persisted for ten seconds on most people, but for Wu Dijian, it lasted only two seconds!

Wu Dijian glared angrily at Bai Yunfei as soon as the flames faded away. As he was about to reprimand Bai Yunfei, he paused once he saw the coloration in Bai Yunfei’s eyes.

They were crimson. Both of Bai Yunfei’s eyes were bright-red with craze.

“This….” Wu Dijian realized with a start. Remembering what happened to Bai Yunfei back in Baishan City, he cried out, “This again?! What’s going on?!”

No longer angry, Wu Dijian shouted out to Bai Yunfei in grim concern this time. “Stop, Bai Yunfei! If you don’t snap out of it, I’ll have to rough you up a bit!”

Unfortunately for Wu Dijian, his shout did nothing to snap Bai Yunfei out of it. Raising his hand, Bai Yunfei pointed a finger at the Cataclysmic Seal.

And at once, his soulforce exploded to the level of a peak late-stage Soul Exalt!

‘Coil’ form, activated!

The Cataclysmic Seal exploded in size in accordance to Bai Yunfei’s power-up. Swelling to the size of a small mountain, it flew three hundred meters in the air to come crashing down on Wu Dijian again!

“Again!!”

Wu Dijian cried out, “You leave me no choice then!”

Gathering his soulforce to him, Wu Dijian started to look serious. His entire aura churned violently as he unsheathed his treasured sword to reveal and use its shining edge against Bai Yunfei.

“Yunfei!!”

Xiao Qi cried out in worry from farther away, but even he was unable to waken Bai Yunfei from his berserk rage. He hadn’t cared what Bai Yunfei was doing when he was just teaching the people a lesson, and even when Bai Yunfei was starting to leak his murderous intent, Xiao Qi didn’t care. These people didn’t mean anything to him, but then when Bai Yunfei had finally lost control over his emotions, Xiao Qi realized it was too late. Trying to communicate with him through their soul bond and then a mental link when the former was fruitless, Xiao Qi was rebuffed in all of his attempts. Having not experienced this before, Xiao Qi was at a loss for what to do or even think.

Xiao Qi was in a tough situation. Wu Dijian was about to attack Bai Yunfei seriously enough to cause some harm, but at the same time, Bai Yunfei might not snap out of it if Wu Dijian didn’t.

Just as Wu Dijian was about to fly forward and knock out Bai Yunfei…...

“Yunfei—stop!!”

There was a cry from farther away that seemed a little garbled by the time it reached Bai Yunfei’s ears, but even then, everyone was alarmed to see it have effect!

Somehow, the completely unresponsive Bai Yunfei came to a halt as soon as he heard this voice!

The berserk aura radiating from Bai Yunfei dipped by a notch as did the tint in his eyes. Alarm took their place as Bai Yunfei seemed to have realize something. Stunned, Bai Yunfei turned behind towards the source.

Likewise, Wu Dijian was startled by the response of Bai Yunfei and froze in midair along with the Cataclysmic Seal.

When he looked at the staggering Bai Yunfei, Wu Dijian craned his head to look where he was facing and to where the source of that cry came from.

Everyone turned as well towards the source of the voice. They were all surprised that someone’s cry could have an effect—just who could snap Bai Yunfei out from his rage with just a few words?!

Just who?

With hundreds of people looking in the same direction, everyone could see three people hurrying on over. At the front of the three was a figure in white and two more people a hundred meters behind. They were all racing with crimson-red light shining underneath their feet as they ran, and some could just barely make out the figure of a female leading them.

Alarmingly,  once the female came close enough into sight, she headed straight for Bai Yunfei and then...into his arms!

“Yunfei! You...what happened to you? Don’t scare me…”

A voice filled with concern and worry rang into Bai Yunfei’s ears.

Bai Yunfei was frozen stiff ever since he first heard the voice. When he felt something warm envelop him, a smidgen of rationality came back to him. 

In disbelief at the first thing he saw in front of him, he cried out.

“Xi—Xinyun?!”
