The Flame of Purity is the enemy of all poison. Any poison before this flame becomes utterly useless. To Masters of poison, this flame is their nightmare. They rather die than seeing this flame.
This is because everyone who practises poison has a poison Dan inside of them. This Dan, once encounters the Flame of Purity, will melt away. This means they will no longer have a future with their practise and will become a handicap.
This is why Ta Ba Feng was so afraid when he saw the silver flame!
Everyone was stunned as their gazes fixated on the Flame of Purity. Their eyes were full of shock and everyone was looking at Ta Ba Feng with pity.
"Wow, how pitiful. He ran into the extremely rare Flame of Purity. What a coincidence."
"Yeah, the Flame of Purity is the enemy of poison. That is not an exaggeration. Ta Ba Feng sure is unlucky."
"I was wondering how Ling Xian can be unhurt. It's because he possesses the Flame of Purity. As long as this flame doesn't leave him, even poison from ancient dragons cannot pose a threat to him."
Everyone chattered. Their words filled with astonishment towards Ling Xian and pity towards Ta Ba Feng.
"Flame of Purity…"
Ta Ba Feng's eyes lost their soul. His confidence crashed down the moment the Flame of Purity showed itself.
It appeared that he cannot handle the impact of this reality as he became delirious. He shouted, "Ling Xian, die!"
As he screamed, poison of all colors filled the air and trapped the entire battle ground.
Everyone's expression changed as they quickly stepped back. In the blink of an eye, only Ling Xian remained in the battle ground.
"Ling Xian, I do not believe the Flame of Purity can fend off my poison. Die!"
Ta Ba Feng's face had become twisted as he crazily manipulated the poison Dan inside of him. Instantly, the cloud of poison increased its power by 30 percent. Even if those of the original level came, they would be shivering before this!
However, Ling Xian was as calm as ever, as if the fog before him was nourishing spiritual energy rather than fatal poison!
"You sure are unaware of how death is before you."
Speaking out, Ling Xian slowly opened his arms. Instantly, miles of sea of fire appeared and crazily increased the temperature of the area!
The silver flame covered up the ground and the sky. The boiling energy of the Flame expanded in all directions!
Instantly, the poisonous fogs encountered their worst fear and began to retrace. Sadly, the Flame of Purity was their worst enemy and will not let them escape. In a few breaths' time, all the fogs had been burned out.
As the poisonous fog disappeared, Ta Ba Feng's face turned pale and he spat out a mouthful of blood.
Ta Ba Feng stepped backwards. The way he looked at Ling Xian was of awe and bitterness.
This scene once against shocked everyone!
Even though they had all heard about the power of the Flame of Purity, those were only tales. To have personally witnessed the power of the Flame of course shocked them to their core!
Everyone could tell that Ta Ba Feng had given it his all. The endless amount of poisonous fog would've killed an entire army!
Yet against the Flame of Purity, they immediately demolished. How dominating was this?
"I have lost. Utterly lost. Cleanly lost."
Ta Ba Feng had a wry smile on his face as he felt his poison Dan cracking down. He realized that against the Flame of Purity, he had no way of winning.
"I had no hatred against you yet you came to cause trouble at the word of the emperor. Because of my enmity towards you, I will shave off 10 years of cultivation off you. Do you have words of opposition?"
Ling Xian glared at this person and decided to make him remember what happened today with a little lesson.
"I… I do not dare…"
Ta Ba Feng's body quivered. He had been scared out of his wits. To have had his life spared was good enough for him. Why would he oppose?
"Very good." Ling Xian softly nodded. Flicking his finger, a stream of Flame of Purity howled out and crashed into Ta Ba Feng's chest.
After an agonizing scream, the poison Dan inside Ta Ba Feng showed a deep crack and lost a decade worth of training. He was now equivalent to someone who just started cultivating.
"I will give you 10 days to disappear."
Ling Xian said softly as the Flame of Purity inside his palm pulsed, "Or I will break your entire poison Dan."
Instantly, Ta Ba Feng shuddered. Thinking about the tragic state of his poison Dan, he didn't hesitate before he dashed away.
However, because of his injuries, the way he moved was with great difficulties.
The contrast between the state he was in now and the arrogant state he had been in before was drastic.
Everyone watched while exhaling deeply. The way they looked at Ling Xian was full of complexity.
"Everyone, the first battle is over. Who else wants to try?"
Ling Xian had a smile by his lips. Though he was grinning, the aura he gave off was extremely frigid.
Someone in the crowd shouted out and immediately diminished everyone's fear towards Ling Xian.
"Everyone, do not fear. The reason why Ta Ba Feng lost was because Ling Xian had the Flame of Purity. We are not masters of poison. What are we afraid of?"
Hearing this, everyone began to react.
"Haha, that's true. Why are we so afraid? We'll just not use poison."
"Haha, exactly. Even though the Godly Fire is strong, it only increases his capabilities a little. We do not need to fear!"
"Think about the rewards the emperor is offering. If we kill this man, we will be appointed to a high status by the emperor!"
Everyone's gaze once again began to heat up. The way they looked at Ling Xian was like they were looking at a precious treasure – full of naked greed.
Seeing this, Ling Xian's eyes turned cold and angry. If these people wanted to fight him as equal to challenge themselves, then he was willing to have a few friendly battles.
But these people here were obvious treating him like he was trash. Whoever killed him will be granted with the emperor's respect and wealth!
How could Ling Xian not be angry at this?
"Good, very good, you are treating me like I am an object."
Ling Xian's expression was emotionless as terrifying Qi began to seep through and engulf the entire area. Like a descended immortal, it trapped everyone with vigor.
Then, he blinked and murky air appeared and solidified into a black Halberd.
"I sure want to see if you will suppress me or if I will rip away all your honor." Ling Xian's lips curled up as he pointed his Halberd at everyone. Then, he uttered out three frigid words.
