Chapter 967
Chapter 967: Encirclement By the Hong Clan

Killing intent also flashed across Xiao Yan’s expressionless face as he looked at Hong Li striding over with a savage smile . These people from the Hong clan were indeed hateful…

“Hong Li, aren’t you ashamed of attacking someone from the younger generation with your status?” Han Chi looked at the pale-faced Han Xue by the side before involuntarily crying out with a furious voice .

Hong Li momentarily paused . He glanced at Han Chi and coldly laughed, “What younger generation? His strength is comparable to even those of our generation . Han Chi, if your Han clan wishes to intervene, you can step forward as long as you aren’t afraid of the Wind Lightning Pavilion making you repay after that . Hee hee…”

Han Chi’s face turned green upon hearing the threat within Hong Li’s words . However, he really did not dare intervene . The words that Chen Yun had mentioned earlier had completely suppressed the Han clan .

The Wind Lightning Pavilion was a great being that the Han clan could not fight against .

Hong Li once again gloatingly laughed when he saw that Han Chi did not dare to make any unusual movements . He clenched his hand and a sharp broadsword appeared in it . The snow-white blade reflected a cold glow under the sunlight that caused palpitations in one’s heart .

Shua! Shua! Shua!

The broadsword in Hong Li’s hand was randomly hacked a couple of times in front of him . One could see that even the air itself had formed a slight depression . Although this Hong Li was really hateful, his strength was not weaker than Han Chi . According to Xiao Yan’s guess, it was likely that this fellow was also an expert who had half a foot in the Dou Zong class .

However, regardless of whether this person had half a foot into the Dou Zong class, as long as he had not truly entered that level, Xiao Yan would not feel even the least bit of fear . Half a foot into the Dou Zong class and a genuine Dou Zong were not even close to being the same!

Powerful deep-green-colored Dou Qi slowly surged out of Hong Li’s body . A wild wind suddenly appeared, whistling as it blew over the arena . The Qi Method Hong Li practiced was of the wind affinity . Dou Qi of this affinity usually leaned more toward speed and agility . Moreover, its offensive strength was also quite strong .

“Hong Li, swiftly finish that brat off!”

Chen Yun’s cry was suddenly transmitted over while Xiao Yan was pondering the Qi Method in his heart . However, the cry this time around faintly had the addition of anxiety .

The cold smile on the corner of Xiao Yan’s mouth grew even wider as his gaze swiftly followed the voice and turned . He could see that Chen Yun, who still had a look of superiority earlier, had already been suppressed by the Earth Demon Puppet until he was at a disadvantage . Each time it swung its fist, he would be forced to dodge in a miserable manner . With the strength of the Earth Demon Puppet, Chen Yun was completely no match for it in a head-on collision . Since the puppet could not use a Dou Skill, it was likely that his situation would not become more treacherous .

Even though this was the case, anyone could tell that Chen Yun only had the ability to protect himself under the attacks of the Earth Demon Puppet . He did not have the ability to retaliate .

Chen Yun’s situation was also absorbed by Hong Li’s eyes . His heart involuntarily quievered . It was unexpected that the puppet would be so strong . Even Chen Yun had ended up in such a situation . Looks like he needed to quickly settle this matter . Otherwise, once the puppet killed Chen Yun, the unlucky ones would be their Hong clan .

Hong Li’s fist tightened when he thought until this point . Deep-green-colored Dou Qi lingered over his body like a tornado . He held the broadsword tightly and laughed ferociously at Xiao Yan . His feet immediately stomped viciously on the ground as he transformed into a blurry figure that suddenly shot forth!


With the increase in Hong Li’s speed by the wind affinity Dou Qi, he managed to appear in front of Xiao Yan within a couple of blinks . The broadsword in his hand emitted a ‘shua shua’ sound as it danced, forming a couple of glaring blade glows which violently hacked at Xiao Yan with lightning-like momentum .

The blade glow landed on Xiao Yan’s body and penetrated it . However, it did not lead to even the slightest amount of blood being spilled .

“An afterimage huh?” Hong Li’s eyes coagulated slightly .

Xiao Yan’s figure appeared around ten meters behind the afterimage . His gaze was ice-cold as he looked at Hong Li who was looking over . His hands curled into a fist and a fierce jade-green flame surged out from it . After which, he separated the flames into a cluster of green flames and a cluster of invisible flames .

The temperature of the arena suddenly surged when the two kinds of flame appeared . It seemed that even the moisture in the air had been completely vaporized at this moment .

Hong Li’s heart was startled when he sensed this change . His body moved with his thoughts as he once again charged toward Xiao Yan in a lightning-like manner .

Xiao Yan’s expression did not change in the face of Hong Li’ attacks, who had a killing intent all over his body . He activated the Three Thousand Lightning Movement to its limit . Numerous after images appeared in a dazzling manner as he dodged all of the attacks from Hong Li . With his speed, it was natural that Hong Li had difficulty catching up to him . Hong Li’s heart also gradually became more furious when he saw that he was being delayed one second after another by Xiao Yan .

While holding back Hong Li, the two clusters of ‘Heavenly Flames’ in Xiao Yan’s hands swiftly began to merge . With Xiao Yan’s current strength, merging an Angry Buddha Lotus Flame, created from two ‘Heavenly Flames,’ was an extremely smooth task without the slightest difficulty . The only flaw was that it would need a little time . However, this little flaw was perfectly covered with the support of the Three Thousand Lightning Movement .

Following the gradual formation of the Angry Buddha Lotus Flame in Xiao Yan’s hand, a frighteningly violent energy slowly spread out from it . Upon sensing the strength of this energy, both Hong Li’s and Han Chi’s group experienced a change in their expressions . Under this energy that was filled with destruction, even they could faintly sense a little fear .

“What a frightening Dou Skill… if I end up struck by it, it is likely that I would, at the very least, end up seriously injured or even killed…” Han Chi involuntarily wiped off the cold sweat on his forehead as he spoke in a heartfelt manner . He looked at Hong Li and Xiao Yan flashing all around like a cat playing with a mouse and sensed the increasingly wild and violent energy in Xiao Yan’s hands .

“Looks like he had shown mercy back then . From his performance today, even I would likely have difficulty lasting ten exchanges in his hands… how embarrassing . ” Han Tian laughed bitterly . Only now did he understand why Xiao Yan had said those arrogant words when faced with his test a couple of days ago . It seemed that in the eyes of that person, his little strength was not worth being afraid of…

“Xiao Yan should have some background . Otherwise, by just relying on himself, he would have difficulty reaching such a stage regardless of how outstanding his talent is . Forget about the frightening puppet . Just this never ending stream of high class Dou Skills is something that even the younger generation in a faction like the Wind Lightning Pavilion cannot compete with…” Han Chi muttered . From this, it was possible to tell that just what kind of frightening stage Xiao Yan’s strength had reached . However, this was only an estimation . After all, they had never accurately predicted Xiao Yan’s strength .

Han Tian and the others also shared the same thoughts and nodded their heads upon hearing his words . Regardless of how great one’s talent was, there was a limit to one’s ability . It was impossible for someone to split one’s attention to do other things while focusing on training . Moreover… they clearly knew in their hearts that Xiao Yan had another frightening identity . A tier 6 alchemist!

While his strength had reached such a stage, his alchemist skill had also reached a level that an ordinary person had difficulty achieving . This was an unbelievable thing from many people’s point of view . The reason was that just any single one of the two would exhaust an incredible amount of effort from a person . If one were able to truly rely on oneself to reach such a stage in both areas, it was likely that the person could only be described by the word ‘monster . ’

“Everyone from the Hong clan, listen up . Surround this brat!”

While Han Chi and the others were muttering among themselves, Hong Li, who was unable to catch Xiao Yan after a long chase, completely lost his patience .

Quite a number of people were startled upon hearing Hong Li’s roar . These fellows were really shameless . Forget about bullying someone younger despite their age . Now, they wanted to bully others with numbers . The face of this Hong clan had been completely lost today…

Some of the experts from the Hong clan hesitated for a moment after hearing Hong Li’s roar . However, they could only clench their teeth, harden their faces, and charge forward .

“You shameless bastards!”

Seeing the actions of the Hong clan, Han Xue, who had just become a little calmer, immediately revealed a furious expression . She could not be bothered with the restraints a woman should have as she cursed incandescently . She wanted to charge forward again, but was grabbed by Han Chi .

“Father, Xiao Yan has helped our Han clan . We cannot just simply do nothing, can we?” Han Xue struggled as she asked .

“Ugh, why is it that you are so reckless today? If you were to go, you will only become Xiao Yan’s burden and end up dragging him now . Is this helping him?” Han Chi frowned and reprimanded .

Han Xue only bit her lower red lip and stopped upon hearing this . She attempted to explain, “He is someone whom I invited . I cannot just stand idly by the side and watch him die…”

“Don’t pay me lip service . Do you think that I don’t know what you are thinking?” Han Chi snorted . He involuntarily smiled and sighed when he saw Han Xue’s somewhat embarrassed pretty face .

While they were arguing over on the Han clan’s side, the ten plus experts from the Hong clan had formed a circle that wrapped Xiao Yan within it . This caused Xiao Yan to have difficulty using his agility to dodge .

“Run . Weren’t you happily running around like a rabbit? Once the old me chops off your legs, I will see just how you run!”

Hong Li’s face was savage as he looked at Xiao Yan who had stopped . He held the broadsword and strode over . However, he had just taken two steps forward when his body stiffened .

Xiao Yan’s tall body stood on the stone platform . His dark-black eyes calmly looked at Hong Li . At this moment, the flame in his hand had already completed its merger . A palm-sized beautiful jade-green flame slowly surfaced on his hand . Following the slow rotation of the fire lotus, threads of tiny dark-black spatial lines swiftly spread from it .

“Have you enjoyed the chase?”

Xiao Yan looked at Hong Li’s stiffened face before glancing at the experts from the Hong clan within a ten meter radius from him . The corner of his mouth was lifted into a dense cold smile as he softly asked .

“Pull back!”

Hong Li’s eyes shrunk slightly as he cried out in a stern manner .

“It’s too late…”

Xiao Yan smiled . His body slowly disappeared in a ghost-like manner while the jade-green fire lotus remained in its original spot . After which, a bright crystal glow, which carried a destructive strength, suddenly exploded!
