Between these three people, only Nu Lang was at the Qi Transformation First Stage. So if he wanted to take them down, it would a bit more troublesome.
Therefore, Yang Kai needed to first deal with the other two Storm House Disciples that were only at the Initial Element Stage, before he could put all his heart into fighting Nu Lang.
Looking around him, Yang Kai wondered if he could fight against a Qi Transformation Practitioner! Thinking about this, Yang Kai’s blood began to boil in anticipation.
What Yang Kai had predicted was on point; the two Disciples that had come from the left truly were Storm House Disciples. Their cultivation was also around the same level as the other two whom he had killed; even if they could be considered strong, they weren’t especially strong.
Hearing the cries of their Junior Brothers they rushed in the direction, from which they had heard them, however before the two could even arrive at the location of the sound someone had already been sent flying away.
“Who!” Stopping in their tracks, the two Storm House Disciples were alerted.
Not replying, Yang Kai instead quickened his pace and threw himself onto them. Sensing Yang Kai’s killing intent and hostility, how could those two be unable to react? They immediately cried out, “It’s Yang Kai!”
Just as they finished speaking, their weapons appeared in their hands. One from the right, one from the left, they jumped towards Yang Kai.
With Yang Kai’s battle spirit stimulated, he met their attacks without the slightest bit of fear. Fast as lightning, the blood red blade once again appeared within his hands and he targeted one of the attackers.
Fast as lightning, the blood red blade once again appeared within his hands and he targeted one of the attackers.
The Disciple who was being attacked, raised their blade to block the incoming strike. But how could his ordinary grade weapon possibly compare to a drop of Yang Qi? As the two blades met, the Storm House Disciple’s blade broke in two. But thankfully, his reactions were fast enough for him to hurriedly dodge that life-threatening strike; only skimming the side of his rib.
*Shing*, the sound of the blade skimming his rib rang out…
The Disciple in question cried out in agony, feeling as if a flaming piece of metal was branding him. Immediately the smell of burnt flesh was propelled through the air.
(Erza: Oh nasty~)
“Senior Brother!” The other person’s complexion changed greatly as he quickly withdrew his previous attack.
In this life or death situation, he re-evaluated himself and realised he had put himself right under Yang Kai’s blade.
How could Yang Kai be merciful with regards to them? Right after the breaking of the blade, Yang Kai sent a palm strike towards the Storm House Disciple’s solar plexus, causing fiery hot Yuan Qi to enter his body.
Once the Yuan Qi entered his body, that person’s eyes bulged out as he flew backwards. Landing on the ground, he jerked a few times before ceasing all movement.
In an instant, he had killed another Storm House Disciple, and that death was far faster than the one suffered by his preceding Senior Brother. Before Yang Kai could initiate another strike, the other Storm House Disciple who was still alive, swung his blade.
Unable to dodge, Yang Kai tensed all his muscles in preparation for receiving the strike.
*Shua!* As the blade glinted with light, it cut open his abdomen area.
Immediately pain flared throughout his body originating from that wound, and blood spewed out. But Yang Kai still remained unmoved. He only became more vicious and bloodthirsty as he turned his head towards that Disciple.
That person had personally seen his Junior Brother killed right in front of his eyes. So how could he think about anything else? He had only harboured thoughts about killing Yang Kai right that instant, in order to avenge his Junior Brother’s death. Right after his first slice, he raised his sword again and this time he aimed straight for Yang Kai’s throat.
Yang Kai only raised his arm to block the incoming strike. The blade caused an inch long wound to appear on his arm, only to be stopped by his bone, unable to penetrate further down.
*Hehe!* As the blood dripped down, Yang Kai only sardonically laughed.
(Erza: I’m starting to worry for Yang Kai’s mental state……..¬.¬)
Within the darkness, a set of ivory white teeth appeared; they were like the teeth of a night predator.
The current Yang Kai, from head to toe, emitted a demonic aura! His smile alone would make anyone who saw it tremble with fear!
“You…” How could that still living Storm House Disciple have ever had the opportunity to see someone like him before? After receiving two wounds, he could still smile. Was this person a madman?
His mind a mess, he only wanted to retreat. In this death match, to be intimidated by the opponent’s aura alone, how could he possibly hope to survive?
Yang Kai’s leg immediately flew out, aiming for his crotch.
The sound of something breaking rang out. That person immediately arched his back and fell to his knees; his face deathly pale.
Swiftly, Yang Kai extracted the sword embedded within his arm and swung it down to finish the job.
He had killed two more!
It wasn’t until then, that the person hurrying over from the right side finally arrived at the scene. It was Nu Lang! The five Disciple from Storm House had split into three groups and had been searching in the vicinity for Yang Kai and Xia Ning Chang’s footprints. Unexpectedly, they were finished off one by one by Yang Kai.
His gaze sweeping the scene, Nu Lang saw his two Junior Brothers lying dead on the ground. In an instant, he turned around and said in a furious tone. “Was it you who killed them?”
Yang Kai turned his head; within that insane gaze of his, was calm and collected coldness.
“It looks like everyone had underestimated you. You actually possessed such abilities.” His expression hazy, Nu Lang forcibly suppressed his inner rage. Taking a deep breath, he continued solemnly. “I have something to ask you.”
“No need to ask. Nu Tao and Cheng Shao Feng were killed by me. You guessed correctly!”
“It really was you!” Nu Lang’s body suddenly began to shake; he had always held the hope that his younger brother had lost himself while playing around. Although the chances of that actually happening were very low, it was still a hope he had clung onto.
But now, that sliver of hope had been shattered by Yang Kai! He had personally admitted that his younger brother’s disappearance was related to him and that he had actually killed him!
“They wanted to kill me, so naturally I also had the right to kill them!” Yang Kai seemed a bit impatient, “Let’s not talk any more nonsense. Let’s battle!”
“Good, good, good.” Nu Lang’s killing intent was seething as he told Yang Kai in a voice dripping with venom. “Since you dared to act and dared to admit it, then I shan’t say anything more. Today, I shall use your life as a sacrifice for those who died!”
Between words, Nu Land readied himself and rushed forward. His body flickering, he arrived in front of Yang Kai in an instant. His hand curled like an eagle’s claw, he slashed horizontally at Yang Kai’s throat.
Yang Kai’s expression hardened; a Qi Transformation Stage practitioner’s power was truly incomparable to one at the Initial Element Stage. Their power really couldn’t be compared.
Hurriedly, Yang Kai leaned backwards and used his hands to cover his throat; the vital area.
Nu Lang only smiled out coldly, and his five fingers actually changed directions midway; directly aiming downwards.
Yang Kai took a few steps backwards. Looking down, he saw his clothes ripped and five, bloody, claw-like marks across his stomach. Accompanying the marks, he felt a strange energy enter him.
Activating his True Yang Secret Art, he immediately dissolved that strange energy.
“A mere Initial Element Fourth Stage practitioner actually dares to act so presumptuously in front of me! I won’t kill you quickly, but instead, torment you to the point that you wish you could die but can’t!” With his successful strike, Nu Lang’s expression became more and more sinister.
“A flowery strike and fancy footwork, you fight like a girl. Aren’t you ashamed?” Yang Kai immediately tore off his ragged clothing, revealing his skinny and shrivelled body, coldly mocking him.
Nu Lang’s face reddened, but he couldn’t retort; who told him to train in the claw arts? This truly wasn’t an elegant art.
“A tongue as sharp as ivory, I hope that later you won’t beg for mercy!” Nu Lang didn’t want to battle with words. Moving both his hands, they took on the shape of a hawk’s claws, and once again he began to attack Yang Kai.
“How about you taste the might of my fists too?” Laughing loudly, Yang Kai rushed forward to meet those two claws head on.
“You overestimate yourself!” Nu Lang laughed coldly. With his cultivation at the Qi Transformation Stage, even if it was a boulder, he could still claw through it. So how could he not do the same to someone at Initial Element Fourth Stage?
