Man Huang Feng Bao, Chapter 220: People Die Young
The white light continued to flood down from the light screen for no less than an hour. Bathing in this dazzling white light, Ye Chuan transformed once again.
The white light dissipated and the violent energy fluctuation from within the body of Ye Chuan also subsided gradually. After his cultivation reached Rank 5 Xiushi, he didn’t break through to Rank 6 Xiushi, but he gave people an unfathomable feeling just like standing in front of a Daoist Master realm expert. Now, from an unknown time, his skin had a layer of gloss, which couldn’t be considered very white, but there wasn’t even a single stain that could make even young girls jealous.
After the white light dissipated, red light gradually appeared, and the restriction activated once again.
“Absorb for me!”
Ye Chuan suddenly opened his eyes and shouted loudly. Using Yao Refining Heaven Swallowing Technique, he absorbed remaining 12 red human faced snakes into cyan lotus space. After sea demon, Hai Lili, this army of yao beasts increased his strength.
These human faced snakes weren’t that many in numbers, but each one had ancient life-force. All of them were powerful. They were at least as strong as Rank 1 Daoist Master ream expert. 12 human faced snakes were equivalent to 12 Daoist Master realm experts. Arranging them in a defensive battle formation, even Tuoba Xiong and Feng Ren wouldn’t be able to come half a step closer to Ye Chuan!
The second chessboard, Fragment of Heaven was very dangerous, but the gain was also beyond all expectation.
When he put 12 human faced snakes in his cyan lotus space, Ye Chuan felt lively aura from his human faced snake talisman within his body as if it had a life. But before he could sense that carefully, a red light flashed before his eyes and the entire group of people disappeared. Next moment, they appeared at another chessboard world.
There was a familiar chessboard, and familiar light screen but something was different that simultaneously shocked all of them.
In the second chessboard, three disciples of Cloud Mist Sect had died, so now along with Ye Chuan, there were only 12 people. In the third chessboard, these 12 people weren’t together, rather were divided into two teams, each with six players, standing at red and black sides of chessboard respectively. They were separated by a boundary river.
In the first chessboard, the chess pieces were statues; in the second chessboard, the chess pieces were living human faced snakes with life; in the third chessboard, there however weren’t statues and any yao beasts, the disciples of Cloud Mist Sect directly assumed the position of chess pieces. The disciples of Cloud Mist Sect had to kill each other! If they want to break through this chessboard, they must kill their fellow disciples. Those brothers and sisters who were talking and laughing cheerfully instantly reduced to deadly enemies!
Now, there was no sound inside the chessboard world.
The disciples of Cloud Mist Sect had their mouths closed. All of them didn’t utter a single word. The atmosphere became more and more tense and constrained. They were able to hear each other’s heartbeat.
Ye Chuan was also tense and his heart sank deeper.
Fatty Zhao Dazhi was still on his side, but Zhu Sijia was arranged to the black side, moreover was standing at the commander in chief position. This time, if he wanted to break through the game, he most eliminate six fellow disciples of the black side. He needed to kill Zhu Sijia too, how could he do that?
Zhu Sijia was also similarly feeling uneasy. Looking at Ye Chuan standing far away, she was rather at a loss.
The ground quaked slightly and a huge chessboard appeared on the light screen above their head. The chess pieces of both red and black sides on the light screen shimmered and shone. Moreover, there was a big crystal screen outside this chessboard. On that screen, there was a countdown, 50, 49, 48…… On the light screen, ‘People Die Young’ three ancient words were especially conspicuous.
First chessboard, Imperfect Earth; second chessboard, Fragment Heaven; third chess board, People Die Young.
The restriction was already activated and the chess game officially began, but both red and black sides didn’t make any move.
This time, it was still black side’s turn to make the first move. But Zhu Sijia only looked at the light screen above her head, and she was hesitating to move. On the red side, the disciple of Cloud Mist Sect that was standing in the front already looked ghastly pale and his entire body was already covered with sweat. Just like the previous two games, after the restriction was activated, the people were unable to move. Now, life and death of all the disciples of Cloud Mist Sect hung on the hands of Ye Chuan and Zhu Sijia.
Ding! A loud and clear sound resounded as the countdown on the crystal screen reached zero.
On the black side, the disciple of Cloud Mist Sect who was at the front suddenly screamed and his body exploded changing into little specks of dust. When the time came, they should engage in battle. If the chess piece didn’t make any move, then that chess piece would explode.
On both red and black sides, the disciples of Cloud Mist Sect sweated profusely.
This chessboard, no need to mention the disciples of Cloud Mist Sect were the chess pieces, there furthermore was a time limit.
Ye Chuan was also shocked and he looked tense as it was his side’s turn to make a move.
“Big……, Big Senior Apprentice-Brother……”
On the red side, the disciple of Cloud Mist Sect that was standing at the front spoke incoherently. He wanted to rush forward and kill his fellow disciple, because if he didn’t do so, then he would be the one that would die!
The countdown again began from fifty on the crystal screen and the number changed at an astonishing speed. Seeing this, all the disciples of Cloud Mist Sect were very nervous. They felt as if their heart was held in the hand of other person and their life hung on a thin thread.
When the countdown on crystal screen reached 9, Ye Chuan finally made a move. He pressed the void and a disciple of Cloud Mist Sect involuntarily crossed the border river and in a head-on collision, the other disciple of Cloud Mist Sect that represented the black chess piece was shattered.
“No, I don’t want to kill you, Liu Zi, I don’t want to kill you, please don’t blame me, I don’t want to kill……”
That disciple of Cloud Mist Sect that had crossed the boundary river burst out in tears. Liu Zi who had died happened to be his good brother. The two of them had joined the sect together and also had worked together in this Paradise Realm. And unexpectedly, he didn’t die at the hands of any yao beasts, rather died in his hands. Although that was involuntary, he personally saw Liu Zi’s body shatter form close proximity, moreover, he clearly saw that despair in his eyes. This disciple of Cloud Mist Sect suddenly collapsed to the ground, but, he didn’t last long, very quickly, he was killed by another disciple of Cloud Mist Sect.
Zhu Sijia also began to make a move under compulsion.
Although the first chessboard and the second chessboard were dangerous, and there was a possibility of death, but their opponent after all were statues and human faced snakes. Even if they died, they didn’t die directly in the hands of their fellow disciples. Now, the fellow disciples were directly killing each other. Regardless of who wins, the disciples of Cloud Mist Sect were the one that died.
The terror of bloody Ghost King Chessboard was finally displayed without restraint.
Incomplete Earth, Fragment Heaven, People Die Young, the meaning of ‘Die Young’ words, everyone began to experience.
One by one, the disciples of Cloud Mist Sect fell. Soon there were only four people left in this huge chessboard. On Ye Chuan’s side, only fatty Zhao Dazhi was left. On Zhu Sijia side, only an ordinary disciple of Cloud Mist Sect was left.
It was doomed to have no winner in this battle. Only one person can survive in the end. No matter who wins, that person wouldn’t feel happy.
“Big Senior Apprentice-Brother, I don’t want to die, Big Senior Apprentice-Brother……”
Fatty cried as his teeth rattled. Death ended all the troubles of the dead disciples, but as for those disciples that had yet to die, they personally witnessed their fellow disciples dying one after another. This was even more painful torture, in addition to the torture of waiting for their turn to die.
Fatty wetted his pants and completely fell apart. He spoke incoherently cried out for a while, and he accidentally discovered that there actually was no movement, and he also didn’t die. He looked up and saw Ye Chuan had personally crossed the boundary river. This time, Ye Chuan could have made fatty into battle, and with his resourcefulness and skill, it was absolutely not a problem to eliminate the final black chess piece, but he didn’t, he took the place of fatty and went into battle, killing the final disciple of Cloud Mist Sect at the side of Zhu Sijia. After that, he waited for the similar bad end.
“No, Big Senior Apprentice-Brother, don’t come, don’t come……”
Zhu Sijia burst into tears. Seeing Ye Chuan getting closer and closer, more and more tears flowed out of her eyes. At this moment, all the moment she shared with Ye Chuan appeared in her mind. Him angering her to tears, his teasing, him spanking her buttocks……, she recalled everything.
At one time, Zhu Sijia had believed that she would never fall in love with anybody, from her childhood, she was energetic and unruly in handling matters never thinking of the feeling of other people. She advocated independence and freedom, hoping she would live on her own in this world one day.
Now, she was wrong, she knew that she was wrong. No one had ever occupied such an important place in her heart like Ye Chuan including her grandfather. There was no promise and no confession between them, but she deeply understood she had hopelessly fallen in love with Ye Chuan.
Darling, how can you let me kill me?
Zhu Sijia with tears in her eyes stared blankly.
Imperfect Earth, Fragment Heaven, People Die Young. This third chessboard, People Die Young, was Love Die Young!
