Man Huang Feng Bao, Chapter 140: One Sword Hou
Late at night, after leaving Heavenly Yao Hall, Hou Shan was still irritated in his heart.
This time he had come to Heavenly Yao Hall to see Elder Tian Qing in hope that he would get the latter’s permission to directly drive away the trio of Ye Chuan from the sect. Unexpectedly, not only did Elder Tian Qing didn’t agree, he even brought up the ancient law of Heavenly Yao Sect, proving Ye Chuan, that brat was unexpectedly correct.
Teaching me the ancient law of my Heavenly Yao Sect, boy, good, you are sufficiently presumptuous!
Recalling Ye Chuan talking big by calling him junior apprentice-brother, Hou Shan was unhappy in his heart, very unhappy, and had an impulse to tear Ye Chuan to shreds. But, since Elder Tian Qing had already given instructions, even though he was unhappy in his heart, he also could do nothing about Ye Chuan, on the contrary, he had to make an arrangement for them to meet Elder Tian Qing after two days.
Although Hou Shan was choking with resentment in his heart, he was forced to endure, but not long after, this flames of fury suddenly erupted.
“What? Hou Yuan Chang……, he was killed by Cloud Mist Sect’s Big Disciple Ye Chuan? Is this matter really true?”
Returning back to Coiling Dragon Mountain, he heard this alarming news, causing everything to blacken in front of him. He was startled as well as angry, and for a little while, he found this hard to believe.
Who was Hou Yuan Chang?
He was his only son, was an elite younger generation of Heavenly Yao Sect, furthermore, also was a real Rank 5 Xiushi expert. What about Ye Chuan, who was he?
He was a trifling Rank 2 Xiushi realm average person, nothing more, his cultivation was fully three ranks lower than Hou Yuan Chang. And although he was sect’s Big Disciple, but he was merely from a small sect, moreover, they had come to beg this time, so how could he dare raise his hand, and also how did he succeed?
“Your Excellency, this is true, Ye Chuan, that kid is too fierce, he had hidden himself well, when he suddenly erupted, even though we want to stop but all of us were unable to stop his attack!”
A guard nervously reported, then with his signal, someone brought the corpse of Hou Yuan Chang.
Hou Yuan Chang, who was doughty as a dragon and lively as a tiger and who always acted willfully with his father as his backer considering everyone beneath his notice in former days, not was already a rigid corpse. Hou Shan squatted down, then stretching his hand, he caressed his son’s face, and while caressing, his palm trembled.
“My son, my son, ah……”
With tears flowing from the aged eyes of Hou Shan, suddenly, he roared loudly, and brandished a blood-red sword. Then with sword lights flashing, 13 guards inside the hall collapsed in unison, all of them without exception had strange sword cut on their throat. Some were clearly standing behind Hou Shan, and some were behind several people, but all of them were similarly beheaded with Hou Shan’s attack.
Furious Hou Shan’s eyes turned red with killing intent. Yao Sword, this technique, in his hand had truly reached the pinnacle.
Hou Shan who was known as One Sword Hou thoroughly went out of control.
As the protector of Heavenly Yao Sect, he was an important figure within Heavenly Yao Sect, and it had already been many years since he last raised his hand in person. But tonight, he broke his prohibition against killing life! And the first to suffer the disaster wasn’t the trio of Ye Chuan, rather the guards of Hou Yuan Chang.
“Useless trash, what were you all doing? Go to hell, all of you go to hell for me!”
Hou Shan roared loudly, and he looked ferocious as if a Slaughter God who had climbed out of his grave, intending to kill everyone on his sight.
And seeing the situation was anything but reassuring, the guards and servants standing outside the door dispersed in confusion, everyone ran like mad in panic.
Kacha kacha, the frequent sound of a sword leaving the sheath was accompanied by the sad and shrill screaming sound. With blood-red sword light streaking across the sky, people collapsed on the ground.
After suddenly losing his son, Hou Shan had thoroughly gone insane. He massacred all the inhabitants of Hou courtyard. No need to talk about the guards of Hou Yuan Chang who didn’t do their best to protect Hou Yuan Chang, even small odd-jobs men and maids who never left the courtyard were also killed like cutting up vegetables, then, he ferociously went towards the small courtyard where the trio of Ye Chuan was living, leaving behind the Hou courtyard full of blood. And this dense smell of blood quickly alerted the entire sect.
Inside the small courtyard, Yang Tian Kuang who was sitting cross-legged on the ground cultivating quietly suddenly woke up. And just after he opened his eyes, with a bang, the door fell apart, and he saw a blood-red sword light flying towards him.
A mournful scream resounded in the night sky.
Yang Tian Kuang didn’t die, but he could see nothing but bloody light at this moment. Even though he was Rank 6 Xiushi realm expert, but in front of Rank 1 Daoist Master realm Hou Shan, he couldn’t even withstand a single blow!
“Brat, I will see how much longer you can hide!”
Hou Shan with ferocious expression grabbed a hidden lookout, then asked about the whereabouts of Ye Chuan, and then carrying severely injured Yang Tian Kuang, he rushed towards Coiling Dragon Heavenly Pond.
In Heavenly Yao Hall, he already had misgivings about the ancient treaty of alliance between Cloud Mist Sect and Heavenly Yao Sect, but due to the instruction of Elder Tian Qing, despite being vexed in his heart, he was forced to endure. However, seeing the corpse of his son Hou Yuan Chang, he ignored everything else, tonight, he will kill Ye Chuan!
On the summit, beside clear Coiling Dragon Heavenly Pond, Ye Chuan who was lost in a myriad of thoughts suddenly woke up, as he sensed something.
“Big Senior Apprentice-Brother, what happened?”
Asleep fatty Zhao Dazhi also woke up with a start, then confusedly looking all around, he saw quiet and empty surrounding around him, that huge white snake had already disappeared without a trace.
“Protector Yang met a mishap.” Ye Chuan replied.
Fatty Zhao Dazhi was startled and woke up thoroughly, then getting up, he said: “Big Senior Apprentice-Brother, quick, shouldn’t we hurry down to save him?”
“It’s too late, but rest assured, Protector Yang isn’t dead, and his life is also not in danger.”
Ye Chuan quietly sat cross-legged on the ground, but his divine sense however was spread out, and he was calm and composed. And when he had just finished speaking, a thick smell of blood was blown over by the wind, and shortly afterward, the figure of Hou Shan appeared at a distant place. He was rushing over carrying severely injured Yang Tian Kuang, and behind him, there were large groups of disciples and guards of Heavenly Yao Sect.
Heavenly Yao Sect really is moving!
Fatty Zhao Dazhi who had just woken up trembled fearing for his immediate future. Seeing the appearance of Hou Shan, he knew that there was no spare room to dodge this disaster. Even Protector Yang Tian Kuang who was strongest among the three of them wasn’t his opponent, so how could he and Ye Chuan deal with him? Even before seeing how Heaven Burning Furnace looked like, were they going to die here?
The speed of Hou Shan was amazing, very quickly, he arrived in front of the two people, and when he was only ten steps away from them, he suddenly stopped his step, and his bloody killing intent soared.
“Boy, did you kill my son Hou Yuan Chang?”
Gnashing his teeth, and unwaveringly staring at Ye Chuan who was sitting cross-legged on the ground with his bloodshot eyes, he asked.
Ye Chuan nodded his head, without any hesitation, he openly acknowledged in public.
“Why? Tell me, why did you kill my son?” Hou Shan took a step forward, and breathing heavily, the energy fluctuation within his body rose steadily, and the sword in his hand hummed, preparing for the strongest attack.
“Why not, do I need a reason to kill him?”
Facing the pressure of Hou Shan, the entire body of fatty Zhao Dazhi trembled, but Ye Chuan just sneered, and looking at bloody Yang Tian Kuang, a pallid light flashed in his eyes. Protector Yang Tian Kuang didn’t die, this point wasn’t wrong, but what was unexpected was, although he had not died, but Hou Shan was incomparably ferocious when attacking!
“Hahaha, don’t need a reason?” Hou Shan was so angry that he laughed, this was the most inconceivable and also most insane reply he had ever heard since his birth.
“Yes, don’t need a reason to kill you son Hou Yuan Chang and also don’t need a reason to kill you either.” Ye Chuan slowly stood up, and a majestic energy fluctuation erupted from inside his body. The three Heaven Swallowing Talismans began to rotate crazily.
A pin against an awl! [T.N: a pin against an awl: opposing each other with neither prepared to give an inch]
A battle of life-and-death was about to suddenly break out beside Coiling Dragon Heavenly Pond.
Rank 2 Xiushi ream against Rank 1 Daoist Master ream, this was basically not a fight. The words of Ye Chuan sounded very arrogant and even very ridiculous, but no one laughed, instead everyone were incomparable nervous. With the precedent of him beheading Hou Yuan Chang placing both of his hand on his back, now, no one dared to underestimate Ye Chuan, this Big Disciple of Cloud Mist Sect. Only Gods knows whether this wildly arrogant Big Disciple of Cloud Mist Sect had a deadly move or had a terrifying treasure with him.
