1616 Luo Qiqi“s Strength
Sensing an immense pressure coming from the rotating sphere in front of them, Nangong Yuanfeng asked warily, "Who are you?"
The young lady in front of them did not seem to possess too high a cultivation level, but the sphere rotating in front of her induced a blood-curdling sensation within him. He could feel that the sphere wielded absolute jurisdiction over space.
Typically speaking, the young lady should not have been able to control the sphere given the limitations of her cultivation, but for some reason, the sphere seemed to harmonize perfectly with the young lady, almost as if they formed one complete entity.
He instinctively knew better than to underestimate the young lady standing before him.
A thought came to mind, and Nangong Mo quickly exclaimed, "Teacher, she's likely the little princess of the Luo Clan!"
"Little princess? You are Luo Yuxin?" Nangong Yuanfeng clenched his fists tightly together.
He had heard that the Luo Clan had a highly talented little princess, but as he had not met her earlier, he had decided to simply shrug it off as a rumor. Who could have thought that the other party would actually come all the way out here to stop them? Could it be that the other party thought that she would be able to stop them with her individual prowess?
"Luo Yuxin? You would have been right, but from this day forth, my name is… Luo Qiqi!" the young lady replied.
All along, her real name had been Luo Yuxin. Luo Qiqi was simply another alias that she had gone by after she lost her memories while sealing her cultivation.
"No matter what your name is, the matter with the Luo Clan has already been resolved. We have already admitted defeat and compensated the Luo Clan with a Great Sage artifact. May I know what you mean by halting us here?" Nangong Yuanfeng asked with a displeased frown.
"What do I mean?" Luo Qiqi's eyebrows shot up. "Let's stop wasting time and get it over and done with!"
"Get it over and done with?" Nangong Yuanfeng was taken aback.
"If you aren't going to make a move, I'll be going first!" Luo Qiqi harrumphed coldly.
The sphere in front of her hummed lightly, and all of a sudden, her body appeared before one of the young men.
Fresh blood spurted out from the mouth of the assaulted young man, and he was struck into the ground. Before anyone could react, a person was already severely wounded, and from the looks of it, he would be bed bound for at least three to four months.
Not expecting the young lady to abruptly attack them, the faces of the other three young men turned utterly livid. They immediately rushed forward to subdue the young lady.
Immense might burst forth from their bodies as their powerful auras surged right into the high heavens. In an instant, their attacks had already locked onto the young lady.
Despite seeing his students executing their strongest moves simultaneously, Nangong Yuanfeng did not feel relieved at all. Instead, his eyes narrowed in horror as he bellowed anxiously, "Don't do it!"
However, it was already too late.
Peng! Peng! Peng!
Three consecutive thuds, and the three young men were already struck down before they could even figure out what was going on. Just like the first young man, they plummeted heavily onto the ground, unconscious and heavily wounded. Judging from the extent of damage they had sustained, it would be several months of treatment before they were able-bodied once more.
"You…" Nangong Yuanfeng was on the verge of exploding. With wintry killing intent in his eyes, he glared at the young lady and growled, "Just what in the world do you want?"
"Like I said, let's not waste each other's time. Make your move!" The young lady could not be bothered to explain herself to Nangong Yuanfeng.
With a cold look on her face, she raised her foot and began walking toward him.
Her movements were not too quick, reminiscent of a leisurely stroll in the park, but every step that she took mysteriously covered several hundred meters. Before Nangong Yuanfeng knew it, she was already standing right before him.
Realizing that the other party's comprehension of spatial laws was actually far above his, Nangong Yuanfeng felt his hair standing on end. Knowing that he was in a very dangerous position, he quickly drove his strength to the limits, causing an overwhelming aura reminiscent to that of an indomitable dragon to pour forth.
As expected of an expert of the Hundred Schools of Philosophers, the descendant of Ancient Sage Zi Rong! When fighting with Zhang Xuan, he had needed to lower his cultivation, so he had been unable to pull off most of his battle techniques. However, as he invoked his true strength at this very moment, it felt as if the entire dimension was trembling under his dominance. The light of the world was stolen away, plunging the surroundings into disquieting darkness.
Not only so, the air around them also seemed to have been sapped dry, creating a vacuum around him and the young lady.
Without the slightest disturbance in her expression, Luo Qiqi raised her finger calmly and tapped the area ahead of her.
Nangong Yuanfeng's raging might abruptly halted in place, and the palm strike that he was executing was also frozen in midair, unable to advance any further at all.
Following which, Luo Qiqi casually flicked her finger.
Nangong Yuanfeng was immediately sent flying into the distance. Crimson blood spewed ceaselessly from his mouth, and the profuse loss of blood caused his face to turn frighteningly pale. It was apparent at a glance that he had already sustained severe injuries. They might not have been as severe as his students', but nevertheless, it would already take him several days to make a full recovery.
With fear reflected in his eyes, Nangong Yuanfeng watched the young lady slowly walking away into the distance with bated breath. Her ravishing looks and fluttering robe would have made her seem like a deity descending from the heavens, but after witnessing her frightening strength, Nangong Yuanfeng was unable to think of her as anything more than a demoness.
At some point in time, the young lady suddenly halted.
Without turning her head around, she said, "The Luo Clan might not be a match for the Hundred Schools of Philosophers, but it isn't a power to be trifled with either! If you ever wish to challenge the Luo Clan again, know that you will be making an enemy out of me as well!"
After saying her piece, she ripped a hole in space and stepped into the spatial rift, vanishing from the spot.
"What horrifying strength she wields! How can there be someone as powerful as that on the Master Teacher Continent?" It was only after seeing the young lady's silhouette vanish from sight that Nangong Yuanfeng dared to catch his breath fearfully.
He quickly rushed to the ground to feed his students a pill each.
It was true that the Master Teacher Pavilion of the Master Teacher Continent had been left behind by Kong shi, but ultimately, the heritage that they had inherited from Kong shi was still inferior to that of the Hundred Schools of Philosopher, which consisted of Kong shi's direct disciples.
In a sense, this was similar to the relationship between Zhang Xuan and his direct disciples in contrast to the Xuanxuan Faction.
With the opening of the Temple of Confucius due, their Hundred Schools of Philosophers had decided to make a return to the Master Teacher Continent in a bid to claim the treasures within. They thought that they should have been able to tower over the major powers of the Master Teacher Continent and force them to submit to them easily with their superior prowess, but who could have thought that even a single Luo Clan would wield such frightening prowess!
More importantly… the young lady did not seem to be in her twenties yet!
To possess such strength despite not having reached her twenties… Her talents could be said to be on par with those monsters of the Great Phrontistery of Confucianism!
"Luo Tianya and Luo Qiqi… The Master Teacher Continent really isn't as weak as I thought…" Nangong Yuanfeng remarked grimly.
"Teacher, what do we do from now on?"
Roughly half a day later, one of Nangong Yuanfeng's students finally recovered enough energy to be able to speak. "Are we still heading to the Zhang Clan?"
"We have to make a trip there eventually! However, given our current state, we won't be able to do it on our own!" Nangong Yuanfeng frowned.
It would take quite some time for them to recover to their peak, and even so, there was no guarantee that they would be able to get the Celestial Amulet of Legacy from the Zhang Clan. After all, they could not simply ignore the rumors that they had heard about the young prodigy of the Zhang Clan anymore, especially after experiencing the prowess of the little princess of the Luo Clan personally.
Rumors might just be rumors, but if the rumors concerning the incredible strength wielded by the little princess were true, the young prodigy was also unlikely to be a weakling!
"Then, Teacher, what do you intend to do?" the young man asked in confusion.
"Send a message to Zhenqing laoshi. Hasn't he been wanting to compete with me? Let him make a move first, and we'll spectate by the side. If we can uncover the trump cards that the Zhang Clan wields, our chances of success will be higher! We have already failed to acquire the Luo Clan's Celestial Amulet of Legacy, so we cannot afford to fail with the Zhang Clan as well!" Nangong Yuanfeng harrumphed coldly.
Hearing those words, the young man quickly nodded and took out his Communication Jade Token. "Very well, I'll send a message over to Zhenqing laoshi right now…"
The 'Zhenqing laoshi' whom his teacher was referring to went by the full name of Tantai Zhenqing, a descendant of Ancient Sage Zi Yu.
"Un. You should quickly heal and condition your body before Zhenqing and the others get here. Otherwise, they will just mock us once more," Nangong Yuanfeng said before closing his eyes to focus on assimilating the medicinal energy to heal his injuries.
His student also quickly turned his attention to recuperating.
They had thought that they would be able to easily force the Luo Clan to do their bidding, but their expectations had fallen flat.
The Master Teacher Continent had really changed a lot.
Powerful dragons and ferocious tigers were hidden all around, and they could possibly be destroyed if they let their guard down!Laoshi means teacher.Ancient Sage Zi Yu, also known as Tantai Mieming, is one of the major disciples of Confucius, credited for spreading Confucian thoughts within several states. He was known to be an exceedingly ugly but principled and honorable man, respected and honored by many rulers in his era and beyond.
