“Are you alright, hubby?”
“Ling Yun, are you alright?”
Zhuang Meifeng and Xiao Meimei asked simultaneously with worry on their faces as Ling Yun flew back to their side.
Ling Yun was not hurt, but his body and clothes were dyed red with the enemies’ blood. Zhuang Meifeng hugged Ling Yun’s arm and wiped the blood off his face gently even though she was clean freak.
Zhuang Meifeng was a normal person who knew nothing about martial arts. Unable to distinguish between the strength of any side, she was confused by all the action. She only knew the result — Ling Yun won the battle, but she did not know if he sustained any injuries.
From Zhuang Meifeng’s point of view, the enemy looked the same. Ling Yun had seriously injured three of them and killed another three in succession. She had stopped vomiting as she became more used to the scene.
It was not unique to Zhuang Meifeng. Everyone present became numb to the violence after witnessing Ling Yun’s killings.
Murder was a crime. Zhuang Meifeng knew that Ling Yun had committed this sin for her. She was ready to accept any consequences as long as she was with Ling Yun!
She would have committed suicide if Ling Yun did not arrive in the nick of time. Every second from then on was borrowed time.
Zhuang Meifeng was released from all the shackles, fully accepting Ling Yun into her heart. If Ling Yun was a devil, she was willing to travel to the depths of hell to be with him for eternity!
What was the few drops of blood on Ling Yun when Zhuang Meifeng could face death with such certainty?
Xiao Meimei did not even flinch when Ling Yun was carrying out the killings since she had murdered countless people herself. In fact, she was smiling with satisfaction when she heard what Ling Yun said to Shi Jian’s corpse: “Before you hit a woman, think about the husband of the woman first!”
Ling Yun had saved her, protected her, and avenged her. It was worth it to die a million times over for such a rare find!
“I am alright! The blood is from the enemies!” Ling Yun ignored the incoming Master Compassionless and instead comforted the peerless beauties beside him.
He then used proceeded to instruct them with telepathy, “Now I have thoroughly infuriated them. I will not be able to beat any of the four remaining masters. You must be ready to escape in an instant! I will let you know when the time comes!”
That was met with resistance. All of them, including Tang Meng, shook their heads, refusing to abandon Ling Yun.
Zhuang Meifeng did not know that Ling Yun was using telepathy to communicate with her and was about to protest audibly. Ling Yun quickly stopped her. “Currently only the four of you can hear me. This is a dire situation. Not only will you lot be of no help, you will drag me down. Do you want me to die in front of you?”
“Don’t say anything. This is no time to be emotional. Listen to my commands. Xiao Meimei, the only formidable forces left from the Sun Family are the four in front of us now. I have incapacitated all other possible threats to you. Later when I delay them, take them with Tie Xiaohu to the car. I will cover you all the way to the car. Once you are in the car, I will escape on my own!”
Because he could see that they weren’t fully convinced, Ling Yun continued to coax them through telepathy with darkened eyes. “Meifeng, I just managed to save you and killed six highly skilled martial artists in the process. They will not let us off. Are you willing to allow the five of us to get caught by the Sun family? I am sure you know better than me what will happen to us!”
“Escape! Just worry about saving yourselves. Run away as fast as you can!”
“As long as you have escaped successfully, even if they managed to capture me, they will not dare to harm me!”
Ling Yun suddenly directed his voice to Tang Meng alone after painting a possible end result to all four of them. “Tang Meng, among the four of you, you are the one that has nothing to do with this matter. The four opponents will likely not target you. If you hear that I was caught after you manage to escape, you must go to Xue Meining and Cao Shanshan. Only they can save me. Do you hear?”
Tang Meng had only seen the strong side of Ling Yun. He thought that the word “escape” would never be heard from Ling Yun’s lips. Now that it had actually happened, Tang Meng knew without a doubt that they were in grave danger.
Zhuang Meifeng’s eyes flashed with worry and reluctance. Tie Xiaohu’s face fell. He hated how his contribution was so insignificant. He had only managed to be of help with a few small bodyguards. In the end, he was forced to watch the battles from the sidelines and had even become a burden to Ling Yun!
Tang Meng realized the seriousness of the matter. He tugged at the corner of Zhuang Meifeng’s clothes, nudging her to follow Ling Yun’s arrangements.
Xiao Meimei had already decided that once she brought the three to safety, she would rush back immediately to aid Ling Yun. She had to be with Ling Yun through life or death!
If there was even a shrub of Shichiyou herb around the area, Ling Yun could have had a constant and unlimited supply of spiritual energy. Even if he was forced to show his trump card, he would be able fend off the enemy while covering the escape. However, since there was nothing of that sort, Ling Yun was not able to replenish his energy. To make things worse, he had only about sixty percent of his spiritual energy left. He was left with no choice.
Ling Yun could not help but sigh inwardly when he sized up the power of the four masters. Once his spiritual energy dwindled below twenty percent, he would not be able to use the Tiangang Demon Fist, much less the Vault of Heaven Fist. He would surely be done for!
Moreover, the Dragon Fish Phantom Ability was a huge consumer of his spiritual energy. Ling Yun was not confident that he could shake the middle-aged scholarly man off even if he were to exert the full force of his Dragon Fish Phantom Ability!
What could he do but to await his fate when his spiritual energy was depleted?
“Master Compassionless, why are you still so polite to the little b*stard? Let’s just kill him before he kills anyone else!”
Niu Fenjiao was beyond furious. Her fat face was pale and her round body shivered in fear as she pointed her fat finger at Ling Yun, ordering his annihilation.
“Yes, kill him this instant. Avenge those who have fallen!” Sun Xing was emboldened again under the protection of He Xingyan, thinking that Ling Yun was too afraid to come fight the four masters.
“Amitabha, please be patient. Your humble monk is a Buddhist, and killing is forbidden in our religion. I will therefore capture him for you so you can deal with him as you wish!” Master Compassionless replied.
Ling Yun burst out into laughter as though it was the best joke on earth. He appeared within fifty meters of Master Compassionless with a sinister smile. “Stop acting noble, baldy. You know how cruel and heartless this pair of mother and son are. What is the difference between killing me yourself if you were to capture me and hand me over to them?”
Niu Fenjiao and Sun Xing were outright tyrannical and evil. It was no mystery that they wanted Ling Yun dead.
Master Compassionless would not kill Ling Yun personally, but he knew that would be Ling Yun’s ending if he were to hand him over to Sun Xing and his mother. Wasn’t that hypocritical?
“Bam!” Master Compassionless smashed his ugyen thick staff onto the red brick, furious at the revelation of his true self. The sheer force created a one foot deep hole through the brick, hitting the cement floor directly.
“Stop spouting nonsense, you evil creature! This humble monk will take you down!”
Master Compassionless’s fat figure appeared in front of Ling Yun in a flash with his Big Dipper Step. His hands were positioned to fight!
His first stance was the Dragon Claw Hand from the Shaolin Sect’s world renowned thirty-six stances!
I was right about on Baldy being superior to Di Ba. Ling Yun was satisfied with his earlier judgment after witnessing Master Compassionless’ stance.
Well, of course he was much stronger! Di Ba was only at the mid-level of Houtian Realm Level 6, while Master Compassionless was just about to break through to Houtian Realm Level 8!
“Stop fooling around. Just bring it on!” Ling Yun arched his eyebrows and concentrated his focus. His body emitted an imposing aura as he unleashed the Stellar Condensation Technique to its maximum and powered forward with his Tiangang Demon Fist!
Master Compassionless’ Dragon Claw Hand and Ling Yun’s fist collided, causing the raindrops to splatter in all directions.
Neither side backed down!
Ling Yun felt the flow of his Qi being reversed and could only regain his balance after seven steps backwards!
Master Compassionless, on the other hand, took only half a step backwards!
It seemed like Ling Yun was on the losing end based on this comparison alone!
Eh?! Master Compassionless was secretly shocked. After thirty years of training, his Dragon Claw Hand was at the level where he could smash stones. Not only did it not hurt Ling Yun, he himself was even in pain! It would be anyone’s guess about what would have happened if Ling Yun was at a higher realm!
Ling Yun’s howl seems to be more potent than the Buddhist Lion Howl. He already possesses such great skills at this level. He will become a monster if he continues to grow! Master Compassionless’ eyes were now ablaze with true murderous intent!
