Ye Chang Feng had seen Xu Que come to his nation, lord over all the others, and receive the admiration of all the swordsmen who were all vying to flatter him. Clearly Xu Que had pulled the wool over everyone’s eyes!
How could Ye Chang Feng stay calm and not do anything about it then?
Moreover, he knew that he had to fight a battle with Xu Que to wash away the shame he had suffered during his previous encounter with the man. Otherwise this unfinished business would be stuck in his mind forever, a thorn that would never dislodge his side for the rest of his life.
Xu Que may have shown impressive swordsmanship that day, but once Chang Feng started to use his own True Core Strength and weapon, there would be no question as to whose hands victory would fall into! After all, ever since he was a child, he had been hailed as the definitive successor of the title ‘Legendary Swordsman’.
And with this shout of anger, he had also shocked the whole crowd, whose attention now turned to Ye Chang Feng.
“What happened? Who dares to offend the Legendary Swordsman, Ye Chang Feng?”
“Was he asking for trouble?”
“Who is this Xu Que? How dare he provoke the ire of Ye Chang Feng and then challenge him?”
“Oh no, something awful is about to go down!”
Low whispers spread throughout the crowd.
Even the group of people that surrounded Xu Que said, “Fujiwara, I don’t think we should stay here any longer. It seems like there’s about to be a battle breaking out soon. Let’s leave before we get caught up in it!”
“That’s right, Fujiwara. Let’s go find Lord Sword Spirit now, there’s no point in staying here.”
Xu Que loudly cleared his throat and smiled innocently to the crowd and said, “Ladies and gentlemen, ‘Xu Que’ is a nickname given to me when I was a child!”
The whole crowd gasped in shock!
Xu Que is your nickname?
Then you’re the person Ye Chang Feng wants to fight?
Holy hell, that can’t be possible!
Aren’t you an innocent and honest man, Fujiwara? You don’t seem like the kind of person who would cause any trouble, though. Then how did you make Ye Chang Feng so angry?
“Fu… Fujiwara, have you done anything to make the Legendary Swordsman angry?” someone asked incredulously.
Other people were looking at Ye Chang Feng and pleading him to have mercy on Xu Que.
“Master Ye, our brother Fujiwara is quite naive and inexperienced with the rules of the world. Please forgive him, we’re sure he didn’t mean to offend you!”
“It’s true, Master Ye. Our brother Fujiwara is an honest and sincere man. If he made mistakes, they were probably unintentional. You mustn’t be too harsh on him!”
Many people rushed to Xu Que’s defence.
This was the Legendary Swordsman Ye Chang Feng after all, so most people were unwilling to dare offend him, and were also hesitant to get into trouble with the powerful Jade Sword Sect.
But the moment Ye Chang Feng heard these pleading words, he thought he’d cough up blood out of sheer disbelief!
Honest and innocent? That bastard?
Had these people been brainwashed?
“Stop defending the bastard!” Ye Chang Feng shouted.
Everyone went silent. No one dared to make a sound for fear of offending the Legendary Swordsman.
But then, Xu Que suddenly spoke up.
“I’ve committed an unforgivable error today,” he said, his tone heavy with grief and regret. “After all, it’s only my first time here, yet I presumed to steal Master Ye’s spotlight. Oh, my blasted naivety! I’m just an ignorant young man who doesn’t know how to properly conduct myself! Please don’t worry about me, everyone. It was all my fault, so let me take full responsibility and face the punishment alone!”
After speaking, tears began to roll down his cheeks. He raised his head up at an angle of 45 degrees towards the sky, making sure that he looked as wrought with guilt as possible.
“When I was at my family’s funeral,” he said softly, “I heard people say that you can stop your tears from falling if you look up into the sky!”
Everyone around Xu Que was instantly stunned!
They were deeply moved by his aggrieved appearance and felt sympathy for him.
What an innocent young man! He must have suffered cruel fates throughout his short life, yet now he had provoked Ye Chang Feng’s hatred simply by accidentally stealing the spotlight.
Yet he blamed no one but himself, and was resolved to bear the brunt of all the blame alone.
What a touching sight!
In this harsh and bloodthirsty World of Cultivators, the young man Fujiwara definitely stood out from the rest, shrouded in the brilliant light of innocence!
At this point, Xu Que’s plight was tugging hard at the heartstrings of the swordswomen there. Their motherly natures were ready to burst forth at the sight of such a virtuous young man.
How could they just stand by and watch Ye Chang Feng bully their kind and gentle little brother?
So what if Ye Chang Feng was the Legendary Swordsman?
So what if he was from the Jade Sword Sect?
Did that give him the right to stomp all over a defenceless, blameless boy?
“You’ve gone too far, Master Ye!” a swordswoman couldn’t help but shout.
In that instant, all eyes fell on Ye Chang Feng. Most of them had lost their respect for the man and were now holding him in contempt.
Just because he was the Legendary Swordsman didn’t mean that he could bully the newcomer just because he’d stolen the spotlight!
Besides, Fujiwara wasn’t a mere pipsqueak that he could trample on! He had in fact been singled out by Lord Sword Spirit himself to be a tiny pinprick of light in the cruel, dark World of Cultivators!
Such a kind and innocent young man like Fujiwara, whose presence had made the World of Cultivators a much better place, could not simply be tormented by the Legendary Swordsman…
They just wouldn’t stand for it anymore!
All the cultivators there had once been envious of Ye Chang Feng, who had been hailed as the new Legendary Swordsman ever since his childhood. But now, all they felt for him was unbearable rage as they all glared at him.
“I… he…” At that point, even the mighty Legendary Swordsman was at a loss as to what to do or say. He stuttered for a long time but still couldn’t come up with a complete sentence with which he could explain himself. After all, he had been the one to challenge Xu Que first. Plus, to the cultivators there, it seemed like he had done so unprovoked.
As a result, with just a few words from Xu Que, he had been instantly cast in a bad light. Even if he tried to explain the matter further, it would still sound too forced, and might even make him look worse.
Because… no one would believe that someone who had been completely unheard of until now had once defeated him, the Legendary Swordsman!
At that point, news of the incident that had occurred in Fire Country hadn’t yet travelled to Metal Nation. In fact, it had been hushed up by the Jade Sword Sect itself!
Ye Chang Feng’s chest tightened as he thought of this. He was ready to cough up blood right now!
Who would have thought that the bastard’s level of shamelessness would be so astronomical?
Who would have thought that he’d resort to such a dirty trick?
Ye Chang Feng could still remember how the bastard had pretended to look so cool and menacing when they had last seen each other in Fire Country.
Yet now that he had dragged himself to Metal Nation, the bastard had done a 180 and was now behaving as if he was the most innocent and faultless person ever, like he had been wronged by the cruel and harsh world, just to get everyone’s sympathy!
How blatantly shameless would one have to be to do something like that?
Ye Chang Feng was so enraged that he was about to lose his mind!
He really was going crazy now!
The worst thing was that he couldn’t wrap his head around the bizarre reactions of all the talented cultivators from the best factions and schools of the Metal Nation! How was it possible for them to be fooled by the bastard so easily? Why had they pleaded for him to have mercy on the fucker? And why did they call him their brother?
“Xu Que, you shameless bastard!” yelled Ye Chang Feng, his voice shaking with raw anger.
The moment the crowd heard these words, their eyes turned icy cold. They had lost their patience with this man!
Who would have thought that the Legendary Swordsman would turn out to be such a despicable person!
It was unacceptable!
They had never seen someone accuse an innocent young man of shamelessness when it was obvious that he himself was the most shameless person there!
One really couldn’t judge a man’s true nature just by his appearance and reputation alone! Oh, what a terrifying place the World of Cultivators had turned out to be!
Meanwhile, Xu Que was nestling even closer to the magnificent bosom of a swordswoman as the scene unfolded. His expression was that of a man who had been wronged and treated unjustly his whole life.
But just as Ye Chang Feng’s eyes met his, Xu Que grinned smugly at him.
Aren’t you afraid now? the grin seemed to say.
Anyone foolish enough to go against the Act Tough King would wind up in a sticky end!
What are you going to do about it, huh?
Yes, I am that powerful, I am that formidable.
And ready or not, I’m coming for you!
I’m coming to kick your ass!
I’m coming to tear you to shreds!
I’m coming to make you fall on your knees at my feet!
Get ready, you son of a bitch!
