After suffering a loss, Li Yun Tian didn’t dare to be careless anymore. Intensely looking at Yang Kai, he flitted about before executing a couple of swift punches towards Yang Kai.

[That’s for being narrow-minded! That’s for making me run to the Contribution Hall so early in the morning!] He grumbled inside while attacking. *Peng, Peng* resounded every time Li Yun Tian struck out. Watching nearby, Su Mu was stunned as each fist landed on Yang Kai, while Li Yun Tian felt pain with each fist.

Both people were Tempered Body Cultivators, but since their cultivation levels weren’t very high, the number of blows they exchanged was no a lot. Furthermore, Yang Kai wanted to tests out his body’s condition; so he allowed Li Yun Tian to land some of his attacks.

Within the time it took to make some tea, Yang Kai came to understand his current body condition; it was stronger, far stronger than a few days ago. With his goal achieved, Yang Kai no longer wanted to be subjected to his Junior’s blows.

Just as victory was at hand for Li Yun Tian, something changed. Senior Brother Yang, who could only retreat and defend a few moments ago, face lit up in excitement. It was like when an evil spirit meeting a naked young lady. This sudden change in attitude caused Li Yun Tian to feel uneasy.

Closely, he noticed that Yang Kai’s excitement was different to what he had previously thought. It was the cold and bloodthirsty type of excitement.

With an ominous sensation welling-up in his stomach, Li Yun Tian retreated. However, with just one step, Yang Kai blocked his path like a towering mountain.

Jumping up, Li Yun Tian wanted to escape from Yang Kai’s pursuit. Raising his leg, Yang Kai swept it towards Li Yun Tian’s waist.

A miserable cry leaked out of his mouth, while he flew a couple of feet away. Without pausing, Yang Kai ruthlessly stepped down, stomped on him and a rain of fists followed.

A bloodcurdling scream echoed out.

This round of ‘note comparing’ ended up with Li Yun Tian losing, begging for mercy.

When Li Yun Tian was sent flying earlier, he still had the intention to continue. But under the merciless barrage of Yang Kai’s punches, his injuries quickly increased.

After a while, Li Yun Tian could no longer endure it. He noticed Yang Kai and his own reactions were completely different.

The more he hit Yang Kai, the more excited Yang Kai became. Meanwhile, the more Yang Kai hit him, Li Yun Tian felt more painful and sorrowful.

Why would there be anyone who would be happy to get beaten? The more red, blood and flesh that Yang Kai saw, the happier he looked, which made him look slightly mad.

Li Yun Tian thought this person was mad. Yet, after the end of the battle, Yang Kai returned to back to normal; back to his kind and amiable self. In fact, he even helped to pull Li Yun Tian back up and smiled back, saying that the Junior Brother had allowed him to win. Afterwards, he picked up his broom and left.

When he was in battle compared to when he was not in battle, he was two completely different people!

Li Yun Tian body was sore all over, he could not sustain the damage from Yang Kai’s multiple fists attack.

[This time, it really was a case of trying to steal the chicken but losing the rice to lure it.] Li Yun Tian thought in tears.

He had already constantly refused to compare notes with Li Yun Tian, yet he had been adamant. He even spent twenty contribution points in exchange for ten herbs to secure the exchange. And the result… he had lost. Not only were the herbs taken away from him, he will also lose contribution points.

[This time, it really was a big loss! Was this not offending because of something petty?] Li Yun Tian felt endless regret.

Su Mu and the others, watching from not too far away were also dumbfounded. When they saw Li Yun Tian and Yang Kai start, they were sorely tempted to jump out and started cheering; for he had finally succeeded in getting Yang Kai to exchange pointers. They were anticipating that Yang Kai was going to be beaten black and blue.

Su Mu even had it all planned out. When Yang Kai was beaten, he would go over and give a few extra words of ridicule. That way, he will be able to release some of his heart’s anger. But contrary to what they expected, when the battle started, Yang Kai had fought Li Yun Tian to a standstill.

For a while, Su Mu thought the things that he saw were a little blurry. Suspiciously, he leaned over and asked, “What stage is Li Yun Tian again?”

“Tempered Body Seventh Stage and he had already started to cultivate train his own vitality. It’s just that he hasn’t much time to train, so it cannot be used well yet.”

“And Yang Kai?” Su Mu asked again.

“I think he is in the Tempered Body Fourth Stage?” His spoke with much uncertainty.

Everyone was overwhelmed with shock, for despite a difference of three stages, he had managed to fight evenly with Li Yun Tian and that was too monstrous. No wonder yesterday Zhou Hu was defeated with only three moves. Even with such a large difference, Yang Kai had won. So even if Zhou Hu had used all his strength, he had no chance at winning.

But, how could that person, the basis of all these speculations, be that powerful? If he really possessed this type of strength, why would he have lost all his previous battles? Yang Kai had been a Trial Disciple for three years already, and year after he was admitted, he was constantly challenged. Every time but only yesterday, he hadn’t won a single one of his battles.

However, the greatest shock that Su Mu and co. were to experience had yet to come. They had thought that Yang Kai being able to endure even one of Li Yun Tian’s strikes was nothing short of a miracle; there was no possible way for him to win. Yet, when Yang Kai really defeated Li Yun Tian, everybody was like a crow and peacock, making no sound. They couldn’t believe their own eyes.

A Tempered Body Fourth Stage practitioner beat a Tempered Body Seventh Stage practitioner! In the couple of hundred years of High Heaven Pavilion’s history, this type of situation had never occurred before! Could it be that even a stinky salty fish will have a chance to turn over?

As he was standing there in a trance, Su Mu felt someone tap his shoulder gently. Turning around, he was greeted by Yang Kai smiling at him while carrying his broom. His face, full of affection while he spoke, “Junior Brother Su, if there will be another good opportunity like this, please remember to notify me as well.”

“You already knew?” The corners of Su Mu’s mouth twitched.

Gently, Yang Kai chuckled. “Yesterday, although Junior Li was hidden within the crowd, he was with you. The only good point of this Senior is his memory.”

“How sly!” Su Mu hated him so much that he gnashed his teeth together vigorously. Only now, did he realize everybody had been thoroughly tricked by Yang Kai.

“We’re both in the same boat.” He laughed: “Oh right, I can still challenge someone tomorrow. Aren’t we all allowed to request anyone for a battle once every day? Everyone, I hope that you will enjoy each other’s company. I will come find you tomorrow.”

Everyone’s face immediately became ice cold. Witnessing Yang Kai’s current actions, hadn’t he experienced the sweetness from this little action? Then when they looked at Li Yun Tian and thought how their own strengths were about the same level as Li Yun Tian, a shiver ran down their spines. Frightened they asked, “Young Master Su, what should we do now?” Su Mu was also at his wit’s end. After all, duels were a long time tradition of High Heaven Pavilion. Which Disciple hasn’t been challenged before? Although he had someone backing him, he still didn’t dare to recklessly break the Main Gate rules.

“Relax. He probably said it to scare you. If he really came to challenge you, I will make sure that he won’t be able to walk away.”

Hearing Su Mu say this, everyone felt more secure and relaxed.

Yang Kai had thought of this on the spot. All High Heaven Pavilion Disciples had the opportunity to issue a challenge each day and since he had never used this privilege before, he had forgotten about it. With today’s reminder from Li Yun Tian, he had remembered it.

One battle a day. Although defeating an Ordinary Disciple could only earn him two contribution points, but mosquito meat is still meat. After accumulating them for a month, it would not be a small amount.

Besides, on the road of martial cultivation, you cannot close yourself off completely from the outside world. Battling these Fellow Disciples and exchanging some pointers, will not do any harm and it doesn’t take very long. [Just treat it like a relaxation activity; you can even earn some contribution points while you relax. What harm is there?]

Though, the harvest from today’s challenge was quite a good one. Not only did he earn two contribution points, he also gained ten strands of much needed Dead Jedi Tree Grass. This was such a profitable day.

[If there was someone to give him ten herbs every day, how good would that be!] Yang Kai daydreamed a bit.

Returning to his wooden hut, Yang Kai immediately took out the incense burner and lit it up. Breathing in the perfume, he started his arduous training once again.
