Chapter 296: Brother, You’re A Good Man!
Translator: Nyoi-Bo Studio Editor: Nyoi-Bo Studio
Killing people was too easy for Xu Que.
Xu Que was not a kind person and would never go soft-hearted on someone. He would never let himself be harmed!
Moreover, since Ye Chang Feng was so arrogant as to say that he would not stop until one of them fell down, Xu Que would help fulfill his wish. Then he would continue to use the same principle in dealing with Jade Sword Sect!
This was like free Experience Points delivered to one’s doorstep, no one would ever reject it!
Besides, do you really think you’re that tough, Legendary Swordsman?
Do you think you can be as tough as the Fire Emperor?
You’re lucky you’ve been able to stay alive for so many chapters. Just look at the Fire Emperor—he presented his wife, daughter and sister, and how long did he live?
Supporting characters who lack intelligence like yourself, pitting yourselves against a Long Ao Tian or Gary Stu type novel… just to let you know, in most novels, characters like you wouldn’t live past three chapters, unless you had managed to meet certain great and talented writers.
Xu Que had made up his mind to kill Ye Chang Feng. He wore a smile on his face when suddenly lightning appeared on his foot, and in a blur, he leapt towards him.
“Want to kill me? Do you think you have the ability?” A mad sneer had suddenly appeared on Ye Chang Feng’s face. With a wave of his hand, a pill appeared in his palm. He had retrieved the pill from his storage ring.
That pill emitted a faint red glow as well as a pungent smell of blood that irritated the nostrils.
This time, Ye Chang Feng was angry!
He was really, really angry!
This was not just a personal problem of his own honor but the Jade Sword Sect’s honor was involved as well—the honor of what was known to be Metal Nation’s most prestigious and powerful celestial sect.
He had been humiliated by the shameless Xu Que to reach the pathetic state that he was currently in… and in front of so many people!
This was not something that he could tolerate!
Hence, Ye Chang Feng had made up his mind that no matter how high the price he had to pay, he was determined to finish Xu Que once and for all.
The appearance of the pill in Ye Chang Feng’s hand made the crowd exclaim in shock.
“That’s … the Blood Demon Pill?”
“Heavens, that’s a six-star pill!”
“No, that should be called a prohibited pill! That pill is vicious, once consumed, it will start to burn the blood essence in one’s body and drain their life force. At the same time, it will forcibly push up their cultivation level and the power of all their skills!”
“Tsk, Ye Chang Feng wants to consume this type of pill? I’ve heard that the side effects are terrible—ranging from a sharp drop in the cultivation level to death by body explosion!”
“That’s right, nobody in their right mind would want to have anything to do with this type of pill… unless they’ve been driven to desperation that they’d be willing to burn all their bridges by relying on this pill!”
“Seems like Ye Chang Feng is going all out to kill brother Fujiwara!”
“No, Ye Chang Feng has lost his senses. As the best of our generation, too much of his life has been smooth sailing. He has never experienced such repression. He obviously can’t take this and has chosen to walk the path of doom!”
“You’re right, but once he consumes this pill, his cultivation will increase to a terrifying level… brother Fujiwara may die before he does!”
“Alas, it seems like we do not have an affinity with Lord Sword Spirit!”
The crowd of cultivators shook their head grimly. They felt that the fight between the two would be ominous as the possibility of both of them perishing together was very high!
“Tsk, tsk, tsk …”
Xu Que could not help but frown when he saw how haughty Ye Chang Feng had become after taking out the pill. Xu Que pointed at him and said, “come, come, come, all of you are the elites from various clans, let me impart some of my valuable experience in the world of cultivation. Our case study is the Legendary Swordsman, Ye Chang Feng, who is preparing to swallow a pill to boost his powers just because he cannot beat me. He is facing an enemy right now and has no choice but to use his last resort, yet he is still hemming and hawing, isn’t he just asking for trouble?”
As Xu Que spoke, he wore an expression of loneliness, suggesting that his skills were so superior that he had never been able to find someone to match him, let alone defeat him. He puffed a sigh. “As all of you know, if I wanted, I could have killed him numerous times as he retrieved the pill from his storage ring. What’s more, he has actually been dilly-dallying by talking so much! May I ask, if talking so much is useful, will he need to consume the pill?”
When the crowd heard all these, they couldn’t help but feel their mouths twitch. This fellow is too cruel! Not only is he himself ruthless, but his words are especially vicious as well! they thought.
After hearing these words, any cultivator in Ye Chang Feng’s position would be on the verge of spitting out blood from anger.
“Xu Que, you… don’t force me! If I swallow this Blood Demon Pill, you’ll…”
“What about me?” Xu Que sighed. “Are you swallowing it? You know, just uttering your sentence has taken one second and seventy-five milliseconds, enough time for me to have killed you seven or eight times already.”
Xu Que smiled and inserted his broadsword into the ground in a relaxed manner. “However, I’m a tolerant person, especially to those who are preparing to show me their most powerful skills. Think about it, if you get killed before you can execute your best moves, isn’t that such a waste? So, you mustn’t disappoint me. Hurry up, just swallow the pill and shut up your mouth!”
“You… fine! You forced me!”
Ye Chang Feng could tolerate no more, anger was surging in his chest.
“Chang Feng, stop!”
The only surviving female guardian cried out in shock.
But that could not stop Ye Chang Feng’s madness.
“Xu Que, I’ll make you regret coming into this world!”
Under the stunned gazes of everyone, Ye Chang Feng gave a roar and swallowed the Blood Demon Pill.
In an instant, a blood red aura emanated from Ye Chang Feng.
He uttered a shrill scream. His skin moved as if blood was boiling under his skin. A mighty energy escalated within him as well.
The next moment, Ye Chang Feng’s cultivation soared by leaps and bounds, his appearance rapidly aged, wrinkles emerged in his face and his hair suddenly turned white.
His cultivation level had been raised to the Infant Transformation Stage.
The whole audience was appalled and gasped in horror.
Level One Infant Transformation Stage!
This change in battle had decided their destinies.
After all, the gap between the Original Infant Stage and Infant Transformation Stage was too huge.
Furthermore, being the cream of the crop, Ye Chang Feng had great accomplishments in sword cultivation. Now that his cultivation had been elevated, he could fully display his horrifying sword will!
“It’s done for now, brother Fujiwara has no chance of winning now!”
“Alas, when Ye Chang Feng took out that Blood Demon Pill, I had guessed the outcome to be like this!”
“His life force will be drained for this victory. After this battle, Ye Chang Feng might not be able to survive!”
“Is this even worth it…?”
Everyone shook their heads, heaving sighs!
As if they had already foreseen the result.
They believed the outcome of the battle would be predictable. They were certain that Xu Que would be killed by Ye Chang Feng and that the latter would die from his exertion in the battle as well.
Subsequently, this battle might become a legend as well.
However, things did not go as they had expected.
Xu Que watched in astonishment as Ye Chang Feng aged rapidly before his eyes. Through the draining of his life force, Ye Chang Feng was now a cultivator of the Infant Transformation Stage.
Suddenly, he felt moved and looking at Ye Chang Feng, he blurted, “big brother, you are a really good person!”
This sentence baffled everyone at the scene.
Why did this fellow praise Ye Chang Feng?
Is it because he is afraid and is trying to beg for mercy?
Ye Chang Feng misunderstood Xu Que as well. “There’s no point saying such things now,” he sneered. “You have pushed me this far and I won’t let you off no matter what. You can only die by my sword.”
As he finished talking, Ye Chang Feng’s sharp sword was humming and the intense killing intent within it could not be concealed.
Nevertheless, Xu Que was overjoyed. He gave a smirk and clarified. “I mean that it’s a good thing that you ate that pill. You see, originally I could only get 200,000 Experience Points. But now that you are at the stage of Infant Transformation, I can get one million Experience Points just from killing you! It seems that I had been wrong about you earlier. In these days, there are many people who rush to give me Experience Points… but, there is hardly anyone who is as good as you, Master Ye. Such a selfless contribution by actually rushing to level up and then allowing me the chance to obtain so many Experience Points by letting me kill you. There really aren’t many people like you!”
