Chapter 80: Man Tai was Killed By Me
Translator: Nyoi-Bo Studio Editor: Nyoi-Bo Studio
Martial artists who could advance to the Energy Shaping Realm before the age of 20 have high hopes of further breaking through the True Energy Realm. The only way to become one of the best in all of Tianwu Kingdom was to become a True Energy Realm martial artist.
On the contrary, people who advance to the Energy Shaping Realm after 20 will be stuck at the same level forever.
Take the Qin clan, for example. Besides Qin Hao, they still have some old martial artists who have reached the Energy Shaping Ninth Realm. They’ve shut themselves in for a long time trying to break through into the True Energy Realm.
Most of them were over 70. The longer they took, the harder it was to master the True Energy.
By advancing into the True Energy Realm, they could restructure their own bodies with the True Energy. Even though they can’t achieve immortality, they could still extend their lives.
Geniuses like Ye Changsheng were martial artists had high hopes of reaching the Energy Shaping Realm before they turned 20 years old. If Ye Changsheng was able to do it, then the Ye Clan would definitely be protected by the Qingyun Alliance.
Ye Kuang’s words brought fear to the smaller clans. If what he’d said was true, the smaller clans would definitely have a hard time in the future.
“Of course, I won’t trouble all of you if you choose to take my side. But if you choose to oppose me, you’ll definitely feel my wraith in the future!” Ye Kuang said.
“Don’t get too full of yourself, Ye Kuang! We still have Ye Mo. It’s still unclear who will win this time!” Leng Fubo said.
“Ye Changsheng will definitely come back in time for the Limestone Champion List Tournament. He’ll defeat Ye Mo and bring misfortune to your clans!” Ye Kuang laughed and left. Even though the Ye Clan had lost the competition, the fact that Ye Changsheng was saved by some powerful martial artist sent by the Union Chief meant that the Union Chief treasured him very much.
That was more precious than all of the Mo Clan’s treasures combined. Even though the Pill Script contained much knowledge, it was still a pile of paper if the Alchemist wasn’t proficient enough.
After Ye Kuang left, Ye Mo said, “Lord Qin, I’ve already told you my side of the story. If you still don’t believe me, then you should wait until Ye Changsheng is back. As for the competition, the outcome is as clear as day.”
Not only Ye Mo was the only one who came out from the Enchanted Cave alive, he had won first place and was the only victor in the competition.
“Fine! You can have all of Mo Clan’s treasures except for the Pill Script!” Qin Hao said.
“Lord Qin, please don’t embarrass yourself,” Xiao Yuanshan said. “There are many well-respected people present. Are you sure you want to throw away all that you’d established for the script?”
“Xiao Yuanshan, are you taking Ye Mo’s side too?” Qin Hao asked as his face darkened.
“You’re the one who set the rules,” Ye Mo said. “The one who got the most treasures from the competition gets the Pill Script. Now that I’m the one who got all of the treasures, the script now belongs to me, am I right?”
“You little brat!” Qin Hao took out the script and threw it towards Ye Mo. “So what if you got the Pill Script? It’s still a useless piece of crap if you can’t use it!”
The script was covered with a layer of energy that could harm any martial artist who was lower than the Energy Shaping Second Realm.
Yet Ye Mo caught the script with his bare hand. His body was reinforced by the Rank One Dragon Blood. Mere energy like that won’t be able to bring him harm.
He flipped the script to make sure that it was the Pill Script and smiled. “Thank you for your concerns, Lord Qin.”
“Not bad.” Qin Hao frowned. “Show me what you’ve got from the tournament then.”
Ye Mo gave half of the treasures to the Xiao Clan and the other half to the Leng Clan. He wasn’t interested in those treasures.
With the Mo Clan’s treasures in hand, the Xiao Clan’s position rose even more. The Leng Clan was also able to become one of the four biggest clans with the treasures they’d received.
In contrast, the Qin and Ye Clan lost many things during the competition, especially the Qin Clan. Not only had Qin Hao lost his son, but he could also only watch as all of his clan’s treasures were taken by other people. It was also the first time that people had witnessed Ye Kuang show so many emotions.
At nightfall, Xiao Yuanshan, Madam Xiao, and Ye Mo stood beside Xiao Yue’s bed as Xiao Yue slept. Even though her lips were smiling, she was dying. Even though she looked normal on the outside, the Phoenix Curse had entered her Energy Center.
If they didn’t extract the Phoenix Toxic as soon as possible, it might explode. The Phoenix Curse was one of the four ancient curses. Rumor had it that one of the martial artists who bore the curse couldn’t control it. The curse activated and spread throughout the whole city, killing everyone in it. The city was later known as the Zone of Death Curse; it was a living hell.
“Mr. Xiao, Madam Xiao, this is the source of the Yin Poison Grass. If you can extract the toxic in Yueyue’s Energy Center, you may be able to control the toxic in her body,” Ye Mo said as he took out a pearl.
“If anything happens to Xiao Yue, I’m definitely going to kill you!” Madam Xiao threatened and took the pearl.
It was possible to suppress the curse with the Yin Poison Grass’s source, but it wouldn’t be able to cure Xiao Yue completely.
“Ling’er, what if I absorb the Phoenix Curse with my Rising Dragon Pillar?” Ye Mo asked.
“Don’t be stupid!” Ling’er said. “The curse contains a fatal toxic in it. Xiao Yue has been dealing with it since she was little, that’s why she has developed some sort of immunity to the toxic. If the toxic touches you, you’ll be dead on the spot!”
“My wife, there’s no time left. Use the source to suppress the curse first,” Xiao Yuanshan said. “I’ll go and meet the Barbarians right away and ask for the Frozen Silkworm.”
“Mr. Xiao, I think it’s best if you don’t go. I’m not going to let Xiao Yue marry the Barbarians anyways,” Ye Mo said.
“Did something happen to the Barbarians?” Xiao Yuanshan asked.
“Yes. I have killed Man Tai.”
