"Wang Zhi Feng, you are asking for death!"
A furious growl filled the storage cave. The boundless amount of iciness and murderous intent swept in all four directions and shot up straight into the sky!
Ling Xian abruptly turned his body, his black hair tussling in the wind. The energy in his pupils was exploding with anger. Two rays of heavenly light shot out of them, diminishing the vibrations caused by the golden spear immediately.
The sudden change in atmosphere petrified everyone. Seeing that Wang Zhi Feng sneak attacked Ling Xian, the others also began to strategize. The other two Heaven’s Favorites started to contemplate if they should gang up with Wang Zhi Feng and slaughter this ruthless youth called Ling Xian first.
Human nature was like this. When nobody steps out, everyone acts like a scared turtle. The moment someone tries to do something, everyone gains the courage to take a risk.
Using the current situation, for example, everyone’s brain was turning hard as a result of the sneak attack. The fear they felt after Ling Xian killed the other cultivators transformed into greed to possess the Drunken Immortal Brew.
Without a doubt, Ling Xian was strong. Strong enough for Wang Zhi Feng, another Heaven’s Favorite, to be losing. However, if one person wasn’t enough to defeat him, then two people can try and attack. If two wasn’t enough, then three. If three wasn’t enough, then everyone here can try.
There has to be a limit as to how strong he was!
As everyone contemplated, their gaze toward Ling Xian was no longer full of fear, but rather filled with greed.
Noticing the change of hearts in the crowd, Ling Xian snickered and ignored them. He placed his cold gaze on Wang Zhi Feng.
This person here provoked him without reason. He was arrogant, rude, and after a short battle, he noticed he would not win the fight and tried to escape. Now, he even dared to stop him from taking the fermented wine. Ling Xian was truly enraged by this point, and was determined to kill Wang Zhi Feng!
This person is not allowed to stay alive any longer!
"Let’s not waste any breaths. You want the Drunken Immortal Brew all for yourself, what makes you think we would be okay with it?"
Sensing Ling Xian’s desire to kill, Wang Zhi Feng smiled nonchalantly. He no longer planned to fight against Ling Xian by himself. Rather, he wanted to rowdy up the crowd and fight him as a team.
"What makes me think you’d be okay with it?"
Ling Xian lost his composure and laughed. He knew Wang Zhi Feng used the word "we" to alert everyone here and inspire them to attack him. Ling Xian, however, did not care and was not afraid. They were just a bunch of ants from his own generation, how much harm can they possibly cause?
Ants are just ants at the end of the day.
This wasn’t like a fight between regular people, where the more people you have, the more likely you’ll win. This was the cultivation community. A bunch of cultivators attempting to fight someone who was at a completely different stage of training will only ever achieve one result.
"That’s right. What makes you think we are okay with it? You really plan on shooing us away empty-handed?"
"He’s right! You are so imperious. This storage cave doesn’t only belong to you!"
"Give us the Drunken Immortal Brew. If you don’t, we will attack you together. No matter how strong you are, you cannot defeat all of us!"
Perhaps what Wang Zhi Feng said really encouraged their dissatisfaction, or perhaps everyone here has been thinking of this for a while. Regardless of the reason, everyone grew reckless and angry, yelling at Ling Xian to hand over the fermented wine and equally distribute it to them. If he doesn’t, they will make Ling Xian bleed and die in this very cave!
Watching the angry crowd, the corner of Ling Xian’s lips curved up. He smirked, "The cultivation community ranks people by capabilities. Every treasure and fortune in this cave are without an owner. Whoever is more capable can take whatever they want. Isn’t what you are asking of me laughable?"
"Laughable? How so? Since you say whoever is more capable can do whatever they want, then we will link arms and attack you. This should be considered normal right?" Wang Zhi Feng’s eyes flashed with sarcasm. He has long abandoned the arrogance he felt as a Heaven’s Favorite and was fully ready to conspire with everyone to kill this terrifying youth.
"How bogus. You speak so many words, and yet you haven’t made a single move." Ling Xian’s lips curved up again and he released a faint grin. He extended his arms slowly, a gush of forceful mana oozed out of him and engulfed the entire storage cave.
"If that’s the case then you guys come at me. Whoever attacks me, I will kill!"
As soon as he finished making his statement, everyone summoned their spiritual energy without any more hesitation. The wind blew in all direction, creating a tornado made out of people’s combined mana, and it was headed towards Ling Xian!
"Come at me. It’s been so long since I’ve had a good and brutal fight. I might as well battle to my heart’s full desire!"
Ling Xian’s eyes sharpened as flares of silver flame broke out of his body, surrounding him and eventually wrapping him up. The high temperature was almost shocking, as the cave was soon heated enough to boil the sea and char the forest!
The Flame of Purity!
In the next second, Ling Xian’s pupils dilated, and one of his eyes turned white while the other turned black. A pair of pure white wings expanded out of his back with a "woosh". Then the wind started to blow, and his body started to radiate.
The Winged Blitz!
Then, the storage cave darkened. Star after star began to appear in midair. A gigantic palm then materialized, ribboned with black and white spiritual energy. The divinity of this guiding law was enough to sweep away a grass field and shake up thousands of mountains!
The Heaven Shadowing Palm Technique!
The Godly Flame, The Inner Eyes, and The Guiding Law. All three moves that represent Ling Xian’s actual capability and potential were unleashed at the same time!
"It’s been a while since I felt like this. To be able to summon all my techniques." Ling Xian’s blood was boiling with desire for war. He let loose of self-control and allowed the Flame of Purity to burn to its full desire. The flame roared and instantly burned two people’s body into ashes.
The Sword of Distinction was as sharp as ever. It continued to reflect rays of light with its blade. Ling Xian started his rampage and began slashing those in sight. His pair of white wings carried him around the cave. Like a real pair of Phoenix wings, the white feathers on his wings fluttered, exuding blinding lights that pierced through the 10 cultivators before him!
Bam! Bam! Bam!
One by one, the cultivators’ bodies exploded, leaving them with no chance to even make a sound.
"This… this is terrifying!"
"What the hell! Is he even a mortal? How could he be so strong! Are those wings the legendary Winged Blitz?"
"My god, this is an absolute horror! More than 10 people have already died. Is this his real capability?"
The collusion fell into shock. As if they were impaled by icicles, the coldness and fear chilled them down to their bones, making them shudder. They stared at the devil-like creature before them.
Ling Xian was still surrounded by the Godly Fire. His right-hand tightly held onto his sword, and his back supported the pair of wings. After unleashing his full potential, every single move he made ended multiple lives.
At this moment, he was invincible!
At this moment, he was undefeatable!
That was the feeling he instilled.
Everyone stared at the youth before them, their despair and panic reached a point that they didn’t even know was possible.
Wang Zhi Feng was no exception. As he watched Ling Xian summon his techniques one by one, his heart dropped more and more. He hid quietly behind the crowd, looking for an opportunity to deliver the fatal move that would eventually end Ling Xian. However, after waiting for a long time, his heart fell cold. He could no longer handle the stress and pressure – instead, he ran toward the cave exit.
He needed to get away from this place, get as far as possible. He never wants to see this demon ever again!
A proud Heaven’s Favorite was scared out of his wits by Ling Xian!
"Don’t you think it’s too late to try and run now?"
Ling Xian’s expression was icy. His white wings expanded slowly, and in an instant, he caught up to the exhausted Wang Zhi Feng. The gigantic palm behind him soared forward as if it could push through time and destroy an army. It slapped down without mercy!
"Wang Zhi Feng, I will remember your name. Not because of your arrogance, and not because of your stupidity, but because… you are the first Heaven’s Favorite that I kill!"
A helpless voice whimpered. Wang Zhi Feng, as if jolted by lightning, turned his body and stared at the overbearing palm that was coming his way. Maybe it was because his survival instinct took over and ignited his inner potential, but regardless of the reason, he lifted his arm, and the Dragon of Broken City emanated an enormous amount of light. A golden dragon appeared, baring his teeth and his claws. Roaring, it clashed with the Heaven Shadowing Palm head on!
As if a volcano erupted and an avalanche broke out, the cave was suddenly filled with an infinite amount of light. Nobody could see anything anymore.
When the light finally dispersed, everyone turned their head to see what had happened and couldn’t help it but to gasp for air!
A Heaven’s Favorite, Wang Zhi Feng, was bleeding from all his orifices. Every single bone in his body was crushed to dust. The only thing left recognizable was a pair of widely opened eyes, staring into a pool of blood.
