Tang Tian first ran over and checked on Ah Mo Li for a while. Seeing that he was not too heavily injured, he eagerly ran to collect his spoils of war.
Everyone tactfully turned their gaze to the side, especially the three big shots who were role modeling it the best.
The three big shots felt very awkward, so they acted like they were discussing something.
“This time, in this event, there is something not right.” Liang Qiu solemnly said.
“That’s right. There is something not right at all. The light screen and rocks are all different, I suspect that someone did something, if not, this would have ended.” Sima Xiang Shan was an avid lover for conspiracy theories, and his eyes looked like cat’s eyes in the dark.
The surrounding people, who were eavesdropping on the three big shots’ discussion, immediately tensed up, as everyone felt that there was something amiss. Now that they had heard it from the three big shots, they immediately felt pressured and tensed.
Just at this time, there was a sudden happy outburst, breaking the atmosphere.
“Ah ha! This brat is a fat goat! Wa wa wa! Rank Four Silver Grade Spirit Card, Woah woah woah! Fourth Grade Star Rocks!”
All the tension and emotions and dull atmosphere, was immediately broken.
Liang Qiu muttered: “It’s only a Silver Grade Spirit Card…. And only some Star Rocks… you’re doing this on purpose….”
Sima Xiang Shan muttered to himself: “Act, continue acting, please, you have to at least act a little better, what Silver Grade Spirit Card and Star Rocks, all these are too fake already!
Han Bing Ning also commented: “Continue showing your true appearance….”
The surrounding people’s eyes twitched, and they continued pretending that they did not hear anything. Tang Tian was someone who could kill without batting an eyelid, they absolutely could not offend him. Seeing how Tang TIan killed Zhou Peng in such a direct and efficient way without hesitation, it was like killing a chicken. Even the other Zhou Clan disciples immediately suffered the same fate.
This kind of person, in no way should he be offended!
“Wa! His body has it too!”
“Wa! This is good stuff!”
The three big shots looked at each other, and all agreed to keep their mouth shut. To discuss on such a grave topic in such a weird and strange atmosphere, it was too difficult.
Suddenly, a rumbling noise was heard, and countless of rocks started to drop.
Tang Tian stopped, and looked above, it was on top.
He was familiar to related things to collapsing and quakes to the extent that he was extremely keen and sharp to it, and as soon as his feet felt the tremors, he could instantly determine the cause and the start of the quakes, and it was above their heads.
“They are above our heads!” Tang Tian shouted to Han Bing Ning, as inside here, he was most familiar with her.
If it was Sima Xiang Shan, he would be suspicious, as he was not sure if Tang Tian had any hidden motive, but Han Bing Ning did not doubt him, she suddenly stood up, and asked: “Who here knows how to wield a hammer?”
“Let me!” A huge and burly chap stood out, his hand holding onto a long handle pumpkin hammer, the strange and huge iron hammer led people to suck in a breath. Huge and muscular, as if his whole body was made up of copper and iron, compared to Ah Mo Li, he was actually a level higher.
The burly chap inhaled one breath, suddenly shouted, raised himself up, the pumpkin hammer in his hand grew bright with a yellow aura, his hammer striking towards the cave roof!
The cave that was formed by the rocks, crashed suddenly and several stones fell.
A swift shadow dropped down and held the burly chap, it was Sima Xiang Shan, he flicked his wrists, and the burly chap with his huge body, was flung to one side.
A few shadows dropped down slowly.
Many people cried out together.
Tang Tian expressed a look of surprise: “Old Fart, you’re here too!”
The Principals of Crystal Sky, Northern Yan, and Beast Academies, as well as Old Fart Wei, the four surrounded one person.
Several people were badly injured. It was obvious they had been through a monstrous battle.
“Hey, the one called Wu, you will never be able to run away!” the Principal of Beast Academy shouted: “You set such a trap. You must have ambitious intentions!”
“I advise that you’d better give us an honest account!” Principal of Northern Yan said coldly.
The Principal of Crystal Sky kept his gaze on Old Fart Wei. Old Fart Wei shot a glance: “What are you looking at me for?”
Principal of Crystal Sky groaned: “I bet you can tell. We have been partners for twenty years. What intentions you have, I can tell them right away.”
All the students were shocked, even the other two principals were stunned. This Old Fart did not look impressive, but him and the principal of Crystal Sky were actually partners. Where did this Old Fart come from?
Sima Xiang Shan and Shen Yuan stared in daze. They heard before that Old Fart Wei and their Principal had conflicts. But no one thought the two were partners. Shen Yuan’s face was pale as ever, if he saw this coming, then Crystal Sky and Caramel Academies were brothers, no? Then he still went ahead to find trouble with Caramel Academy…
The Principal of Crystal Sky Academy in Star Wind City had a reputation. No one knew about his past, but everybody knew he had a deep power and was just and honoured, not in the least selfish.
Old Fart Wei laughed: “Of course you can tell, but it’s not hard for me to tell either. Those treasures will all be mine! Caramel Academy is small and poor, my two students have nothing at all. How pathetic are we!”
Sima Xiang Shan and the others had an odd expression. Indeed, the subordinates would always imitate their supervisor vices. Old Fart Wei and Tang Tian had similar personalities!
“Good!” Northern Yan Principal replied straightforwardly.
“I have no problem too!” Principal of Beast Academy nodded.
Old Fart Wei’s power caused the two principals to be surprised, and the three Bronze Rank Star Treasures, to them, was nothing much. To pay such a low price to make friends with him, they would definitely agree.
“That’s fine. Speak, there’s no one here to grab from you.” The Crystal Sky Principal said coldly.
“Are you able to guess it? Haha!” Mr. Wu laughed out loud: “Just by relying on the few of you, what can you all achieve? Call the real experts behind you all to come out!”
“I can’t guess?” Old Fart Wei laughed coldly: “Once I saw the [Blood Eye], I understood. Let me tell you. Coincidentally, I too have a Microscopium Constellation [Blood Eye]. A Bronze Rank Star Treasure, it only has one use, and that is to identify good or bad blood meridians. I got it right, right?”
“You…..” Mr. Wu’s expression froze.
“That is a very good guess. You plotted such a huge set, and led the City Lord to bring the Martial Meet here, there’s roughly a nine out of ten chance that you had the idea of getting blood meridians. Then let me guess, you have obtained a couple of secret techniques to cultivate the blood meridians, but all those secret techniques requires a lot of blood, and it needs an abundance of it. If you had done this in any constellation on Heaven’s Road, you would have drawn attention from other people. So, you came running to Wu An Star, a borderline planet. You used this fake opening of the Starry Door, staged such an event, and even if many people died, no one would ever question or suspect you. How can there be no deaths in finding a Starry Door? Having many deaths is considered very normal!”
Old Fart Wei coldly looked at Mr. Wu with killing intent in his eyes.
“The Starry door is real, the Labyrinth of Spirits is also real. For the benefit of everybody, everyone will become muddleheaded. You just have to quietly take action, harvest the blood meridians, use the Blood Eye to differentiate, find your target, quietly make them disappear, and collect the blood meridians that you need. Because you have already set up the entire Labyrinth of Spirits. You just did not know that you failed through the lack of a final effort.”
Old Fart Wei stare tightly at Mr Wu, slowly stressed one word by one word: “Am I right? Onyx Soul Mr. Wu!”
Mr. Wu’s fearfully looked at Old Fart Wei: “You… Who the hell are you”
“Wa! Old Fart, you are so powerful!” Tang Tian shouted as he looked in astonishment.
All the atmosphere and the mood immediately vanished into thin air, Old Fart Wei’s deep profound and mysterious attitude, was immediately broken.
Old Fart Wei rolled his eyes, He could not help but cringe his face, and ended up scolded: “Would it kill you to just stay quiet for once?!”
“Ah! Why should I be quiet!” Tang Tian was astonished.
Old Fart Wei turned around frustratedly and looked at the Principal of Crystal Sky Academy: “Yes, it’s almost like this.” Then without forgetting to add on: “I’m going to say first, those few bronze treasures will be mine!”
Mr. Wu looked up and used all his energy to scream: “Who is it? Who ruined my plans! Come out! Come out!”
“Stop shouting. The others have a high status and will definitely will not let this pass. They will punish you.” Old Fart Wei said arrogantly: “You just have to admit to your wrongdoings honestly, so that you don’t have to suffer so much. We can also save some energy.”
“That’s right!” The Principal of Northern Yan said vengefully as he groaned; “It must be a senior who witnessed your wrongdoings and can’t bear to let you go!”
They all understood that there must be some higher-up helping him. If not, with their powers, it was impossible to set up such a trap. The strength of a Labyrinth of Spirits was unpredictable. Coupled with the opponent’s three Bronze Rank Star Treasures, it was technically flawless. The four had stayed in there for so long, and they sensed nothing at all.
“Che, to rely on you all to stop me?” Mr. Wu laughed coldly, the fear on his face was swept away, his aura was rising. He said: “Since you don’t want to come out, then I’ll force you out!”
Mr. Wu’s thin and black slender sword in his hands started to curve, and with a bounce, it buzzed, causing everyone’s ears to shake.
His body moved as if he were a monster. A flash of his black shadow as fast as lightning, pointed at the Principal of Northern Yan.
“Careful! It’s the bronze treasure, [Body Piercing Sword] from the Volans Constellation!”
The Principal of Northern Yan cleared his throat, remaining calm. His sword released sprinkles of water, only to hear a burst of rainstorm dropping. The other three did not hesitate, and immediately took action as well.
With a burst of energy, it flooded all four directions.
The people around were overwhelmed with shock. The burst of fifth level True Powers collided to form a destructive energy.
Sima Xiang Shan, Han Bing Ning, and Liang Qiu did not retreat. They had the weapons in their hands. If they were to confront a huge enemy, they could aid them anytime. Tang Tian did not retreat either, after all, it was rare to witness such a strong enemy.
Mr. Wu was definitely powerful and capable, far beyond one’s imagination. One against four, and he had to pull through it. His body was extremely fast. Tang Tian could only catch a glimpse of a black shadow and his silhouette was completely gone. The courageous and malleable piercing sword in Mr. Wu’s hand was full of killing power.
However, before the vicious battle, Mr. Wu had already been injured, and was bleeding slightly. First, it started to soak his clothes, and his sword movements also began to slow down.
The four principals were obviously rich in battlefield experience. They were wise and steady about their fighting strategies, and all had the intention to tire out Mr. Wu.
Mr. Wu sensed the intentions of the four, and instigated his True Power. A flirtatious, red colour appeared on his face. His speed increased suddenly and the slender black sword in his hand broke out a shrilling sound.
The faces of the other four congealed. They knew this was the fight Mr. Wu would put up before his death. He would use all of his energy.
The shadow of Mr. Wu rushed to both sides. An undetectable change appeared from the four battle array forms. A ray of icy cold light flashed across Mr. Wu’s eyes. His body shook and tricked the other four to move. With his shouts, the slender sword in his hand suddenly emitted a bedazzling ray of light.
Fine piercing swords exploded out, transforming into ten sections, like a heavy downpour, striking onto one location from everywhere, bringing forth a sharp intense arrow sound. The four principals’ faces changed, and they immediately took action to block, to protect their body!
Using this advantage in time, Mr. Wu body was like a leech, and seized the opportunity to slide away from the fight.
Liang Qiu’s scattered hands, Sima Xiang Shan’s whip and Han Bing Ning’s sword, simultaneously reached out. The three of them were really clever, they knew they just had to restrict Mr Wu from getting out.
Mr. Wu inhaled one deep breath, his face blushing an even deeper red, while his long sleeves swept, loudly banging into the three of them together.
His sleeves were immediately broken into pieces, and revealed his skin overflowing of fresh blood on both his arms.
Mr. Wu spit out a mouthful of fresh blood. A taste of ferociousness and slyness flashed across his eyes. Lending this energy, he started increasing in his speed.
Tang Tian was shocked. The opponent was actually rushing towards him!
