Martial Peak Chapter 421
Chapter 421 Theyre Like A Fox And A Racoon
Xiang Tian Xiao had long honed this Xiang Family secret technique, integrating his own understanding of the power of thunder and lightning into it, obtaining the praise of many of the familys masters.
This was his ultimate killing strike that he only used when facing the most powerful of enemies, it would often determine whether he obtained victory or was defeated.
When they saw their Second Young Lord use this move, the Xiang Familys cultivators knew that he had truly been angered; otherwise it was impossible for him to have such strong murderous intent.
[Lets see how you block this!] The Xiang Familys Immortal Ascension Boundary Fourth Stage master silently sneered, thinking that after the Second Young Lord defeated Yang Kai, they would immediately leave this place and not be forced to help this Yang Family Young Lord in this Inheritance War.
After all, given how pitiful Yang Kais chances appeared, all of them whole heartedly wished to stay out of this mess.
As for the war material they had brought, that was the Nan Familys compensation to Yang Kai, leaving it behind had no effect on them.
Qiu Yi Meng was also secretly shocked. She hadnt expected this Xiang Family Second Young Lord to possess such great combat strength and to have cultivated such a powerful killing strike. She silently estimated that against this move, no one under the Immortal Ascension Boundary would be able to resist. Even she as an Immortal Ascension Boundary First Stage felt it would be best to avoid taking this attack head on and instead look for opportunities to dodge then counterattack.
She didnt know if Yang Kai could block this strike. Although she had witnessed just how powerful Yang Kai was, that was a long time ago so she wasnt sure just how much he had grown.
But when she remembered about that day a few months ago, when Yang Kai had single handedly fought an Immortal Ascension Boundary Third Stage master to a standstill, Qiu Yi Meng calmed down.
Even if this Xiang Tian Xiao was much stronger than an average True Element Ninth Stage cultivation, could he possibly be as strong as an established Immortal Ascension Boundary Third Stage master?
As light burst and wind howled around Xiang Tian Xiaos saber, the glowing blue sphere at his blades tip suddenly burst open, forming a dense web of lightning that engulfed a ten meter radius.
Thousands of lightning bolts, like tiny spirit snakes, swam through the air, each one containing Xiang Tian Xiaos sharp and unparalleled killing intent, forming an inescapable torrent of attacks.
Huo Xing Chens always aloof expression finally became slightly serious, an astonished light flashing across his eyes
However, Yang Kai still stood in place, like an ancient glacier, cold and motionless, his expression indifferent as he silently observed the numerous bolts of lightning which surrounded him.
Although Xiang Tian Xiaos eyes remained focused, the corners of his mouth couldnt help inadvertently curling upwards.
He had won! Xiang Tian Xiao was completely confidant that no one below the Immortal Ascension Boundary could resist his Thunder Flash Saber.
The white light was so dazzling that those watching couldnt open their eyes, but if they were watching, the instant Xiang Tian Xiaos attack was about to hit its mark, they would have noticed that Yang Kais figure suddenly blurred, disappearing without a trace.
The next moment, from within the lightning storm, the burst of True Qi suddenly exploded outwards.
A great palm print quickly filled Xiang Tian Xiaos vision, seemingly obscuring the entire sky, creating the illusion that no matter how he tried to block or avoid, it would inevitably smash into his chest.
With a sorrowful cry, Xiang Tian Xiaos Thunder Flash Saber was torn apart like paper and he was subsequently hurled through the air, spitting out a cloud of blood fog in the process.
Second Young Lord! The Immortal Ascension Fourth Stage master who had been expecting to see a good show, immediately noticed that the situation was not right, his expression changing drastically as he darted towards where Xiang Tian Xiao had fallen.
When the dust settled, it looked as though Yang Kai hadnt moved at all as he still stood in his original spot. His expression was calm and indifferent as ever.
Huo Xing Chens brow twitched as he ground his teeth, suddenly realizing that when Yang Kai had dealt with him that night, he had obviously been holding back.
All of the Xiang Familys cultivators were stunned, staring at the scene before them, unable to believe what their eyes had just seen.
Xiang Tian Xiao coughed up some blood as he staggered to his feet, separating himself from his familys master who had helped him up, his brows furrowed deeply as his eyes filled with unwillingness.
Staring at Yang Kai, it was only after a long silence that the unwillingness in Xiang Tian Xiaos eyes slowly faded, a dispirited light slowly taking its place.
He had never dreamt that within the True Element Boundary, there was someone who could beat him so easily! He was the genius of the Xiang Family, his aptitude far superior to his elder brother Xiang Chu, the Xiang Familys most vigorously trained disciple. At such a young age he was just one step away from breaking through to the Immortal Ascension Boundary, it was not an exaggeration to say that his future was limitless.
It had always been him crushing his enemies in battle; never once had he suffered such a devastating defeat like today.
His strongest blow, filled with killing intent, hadnt even managed to touch his opponents clothes! It was a heavy blow to his pride.
Second Young Lord The strongest of the Xiang Family Immortal Ascension Boundary masters was afraid that Xiang Tian Xiao could not withstand this setback and would become disheartened, losing his way along the Martial Dao, so he quickly comforted, In battle no one can ever be certain of the outcome, do not let this defeat fester in your heart.
Xiang Tian Xiao gently nodded, letting out a long sigh, the lost expression on his face gradually fading as he turned his eyes towards Yang Kai, a strong fighting intent smoldering in his gaze.
Yang Kai secretly nodded as he thought to himself. [Xiang Tian Xiao certainly has some skill. If he was given enough time to hone himself, his future achievements would certainly not be worse than any of the Eight Great Families successors.]
Qiu Yi Mengs lips curled up, a happy smile adorning her pretty face while Huo Xing Chen simply shook his head and sighed. Why is he so strong? Just how the hell does he cultivate?
Qiu Yi Meng, arrange some accommodations for them and let some people from the Autumn Rain Hall carry those four boxes into the mansion. Yang Kai calmly ordered, turned around and walking back inside, not looking at Xiang Tian Xiao again.
But before he left, Yang Kai seemingly inadvertently glanced off towards a certain place.
In that place, two extremely powerful Immortal Ascension Boundary Eighth Stage masters stood.
One of them nearly stumbled, suspiciously muttering, Did that Young Lord Kai notice us?
The other master also furrowed his brow before shaking his head, Impossible, weve hidden ourselves so deeply and havent shown any hostility, simply observing from a distance. How could he have found us?
Then why did he look at us?
Strange The taller of the two whispered under his breath, Never mind him. Patriarchs orders were simply for us to observe Young Lord Kais performance tonight. If it looks like hell be eliminated, then we just need to bring the Young Master back. Who made the Young Master choose such an unpromising Young Lord as an ally?
But objectively, this Young Lord Kais combat strength is incredible, I dont think any newly promoted Immortal Ascension cultivator would be his match.
Outside the main entrance, Qiu Yi Meng smiled lightly at the Xiang Family cultivators as she walked over.
Immediately upon learning her identity, the Immortal Ascension Boundary Fourth Stage master respectfully cupped his fists, Xiang Family Xiang Fei greets Young Lady Qiu!
At the same time though, some suspicion flashed across his eyes, the Qiu Family had already publicly declared its support for the Yang Familys Sixth Young Lord Yang Shen, so naturally they had heard about it. Thus, why was the Qiu Familys First Young Lady here with Yang Kai? Moreover, Yang Kais attitude towards her made it seem as if she was under his command. What was even more shocking was that this world famous Young Lady actually had no complaints about his attitude, and instead just calmly obeyed his orders!
[I dont understand, what is going on?]
Xiang Tian Xiao also stood up straight and cupped his fists.
Seeing their respectful demeanor, Qiu Yi Meng let out a small laugh and said, No need to be so polite, all of us will be working together from now on.
Xiang Fei nodded firmly, Since Young Lord Kai defeated my familys Second Young Lord in fair combat, my Xiang Family will also fulfill its promise. As long as Young Lord Kai remains undefeated in the Inheritance War, we will do our utmost to support him.
Qiu Yi Meng nodded with satisfaction
Just Young Lady Qiu, why are you Xiang Fei couldnt help asking.
Im also his ally, hehe. Qiu Yi Meng smiled but didnt explain any further.
Xiang Tian Xiao and Xiang Fei suddenly noticed that this Young Lord Kai who no one was optimistic about had somehow quietly made allies of two of the Eight Great Families Young Masters, among the eight Yang Family Young Lords this was unique.
Lets go in first. Ill arrange a place for you shortly. Qiu Yi Meng said lightly before shaking her head and smiling wryly, I didnt expect that when I came here Id end up acting as a house manager
As the Xiang Family group walked inward, Huo Xing Chen, still waving his folding fan, came up to Xiang Tian Xiao and grabbed his shoulders intimately, Were brothers in difficulty now! Let us share a drink!
Somewhat stunned, Xiang Tian Xiao replied casually, Good!
After drinking, Ill lead you to the local brothel!
Theres no need for that!
Hearing the sound of footsteps outside his door, Yang Kai lifted his eyes and called out, Come in!
When the door was pushed open, Qiu Yi Mengs graceful figure, wrapped in a fragrant wind, walked into the room, and without any thought to courtesy poured herself a cup of tea to moisten her throat. Following her were some Autumn Rain Hall people carrying four large boxes. After placing the boxes to one side of the room, these people quickly excused themselves.
Qiu Yi Meng stayed behind though and took a seat, elegantly smiling at Yang Kai as she asked, When did you force the Xiang and Nan Families into such a situation?
About three months after I separated from you and Luo Xiao Man.
Tell me about it, what happened at that time? I asked that Xiang Tian Xiao but even he wasnt too clear, only saying that his big brother and cousin both hate you to death and that you forced two Nan Family Elders to cut off an arm, while the Nan Familys Young Master also lost two fingers. You really are ruthless, forcing the successor of a first-class family to suffer such an embarrassment!
They brought it upon themselves. Yang Kai sneered disdainfully as he casually recounted the situation at that time.
As Qiu Yi Meng listened, her eyes sparkled, absolutely no trace of disdain or displeasure apparent on her face. Especially when she heard how he had ruthlessly humiliated the two families while they were unable to resist, her mood seemed even more pleasant.
If thats the case, then choking down this insult is understandable. Attempting to kill a Yang Family Young Lord is no small matter after all, especially after the death of your Fourth Brother, if they were suspected of being involved at all, the Xiang and Nan Families would be finished.
Tell me about the Xiang Family, especially the relationship between Xiang Tian Xiao and Xiang Chu. Yang Kai stood up and walked over to the four boxes, checking the materials as he seemingly asked a random question.
Theyre like a fox and a Racoon! Qiu Yi Meng spat disdainfully
Yang Kai chuckled, Xiang Chu obviously didnt tell his brother about what happened back then or Xiang Tian Xiao wouldnt have rushed to challenge me today. When one brother hides information and plots against the other, the relationship between the two is obviously not good, if I couldnt even see that wouldnt I just be blind?
