Chapter 9 – Help
Raging black clouds sprawled across the skies of Summer City, right before the city was engulfed by fog within a split second.
The ground was shaking up and down, instilling panic in Summer City’s residents.
Terrifying would be the only word to describe the power of a Supreme Realm martial artist.
“This is the Xia family’s death day….”
In a valley that led to the border of Summer City, the Red Maple Chamber of Commerce workers could be seen running for their lives. Master Ni Gu could be seen standing amongst them, smiling bitterly. He was friends with Xia Kuangyun, but not close to the extent that he would risk his life for Xia Kuangyun. The Red Maple Chamber of Commerce might not fear the Baiyun Mountain Sect, but Master Ni Gu feared for his life, thus he was escaping with the other workers. This was simply human nature.
“Bastard Xia Fukun! Prepare to die today!”
A roar boomed across Summer City, causing the ground to rumble.
Blood splattered all across Summer City’s streets. It was left behind by many commoners on the streets who were unable to take the impact of the powerful soundwave.
“Ah, Mu Yun is so close to the Supreme Realm, no wonder there’s nobody willing to render us a helping hand….”
Xia Kuangyun stared at the black sky blankly. He knew that Mu Yun was about to break through to the Supreme Realm, but he never thought that he would be so powerful. Xia Kuangyun felt like nothing but an ant standing in front of him.
However, he needed to step out, no matter what.
“Your humble junior Xia Kuangyun is honored to meet Senior Mu Yun!”
As an elite in the Profound Realm, Xia Kuangyun had the ability to fly. He floated lightly above the Xia residence and bowed to Mu Yun.
“Xia Kuangyun? That bastard’s father?”
Mu Yun was nowhere to be seen, but his voice rang across Summer City clearly. Howls of chilly wind could be heard along with Mu Yun’s words.
“You are a bad parent, and you deserve death.”
A bolt of lightning struck down, ripping the pitch-dark sky in half before heading toward Xia Kuangyun.
All of a sudden, a gigantic figure leapt to the sky.
It protected Xia Kuangyun from the attack before falling to the ground.
A deep pit formed in the ground following the fall of the giant figure.
Xia Fukun furrowed his brows. He didn’t know that Mu Yun was this strong. He had not even shown himself yet and he was already able to seriously injure the Super Strength Ape.
Fear travelled in Xia Fukun’s veins, but he had no choice but to put on a calm expression and step out.
He flew toward Xia Fukun’s side, staring at the black cloud that was floating over his head.
“Who are you to kill my father?”
Seeing Xia Fukun floating right next to him, Xia Kuangyun’s mouth opened slightly, but words failed to come out as he smiled at Xia Fukun bitterly.
“Hahahaha, well, well!”
Laughter roared across the skies as a man with gray hair stepped out of the fog.
“Bastard, how dare you kill my grandson? I’m going to make Summer City my grandson’s burial object!”
Mu Yun. Xia Fukun took a deep breath and stared at Mu Yun. Suddenly, the smell of blood filled Summer City.
A frown formed on Xia Fukun’s face. Floating in the skies, he could see the Baiyun Mountain Sect’s disciples running across Summer City.
To them, it didn’t matter that these people were innocent.
As long as it was a living thing, they must all be killed.
Today, this was the day of…
Summer City’s massacre!
Witnessing the scene, Xia Fukun clenched his fist, glaring at Mu Yun in anger.
“I am the one who killed your grandson! Why are you taking it out on the innocents!?”
Never did Xia Fukun think that there would be an entire city of innocents who would lose their lives because of him. This fact pushed him to the verge of a breakdown.
Mu Yun chuckled lightly as if it was just an ordinary event.
“Not just them.”
Mu Yun cracked a smile. He opened his palm, sucking Xia Kuangyun over to him.
“Other than them, I’ll make you watch your loved ones die in pain. You deserve this.”
Mu Yun’s voice boomed across the skies as Xia Kuangyun’s body that was floating in the skies started to shrink slowly.
“Father!” Xia Fukun cried as he dashed toward Xia Kuangyun.
But before he could do so, a strong force sent him flying ten meters away.
He was bleeding, but the scene of Xia Kuangyun suffering stung, only fueling the fire that burned inside of Xia Fukun.
“Little bastard, stop making useless moves. Soon, you’ll be down there to join your loved ones too. But wait, I’ll make sure you die a terrible death.”
Mu Yun burst out into laughter.
Seeing that Xia Kuangyun could no longer take it, Xia Fukun took a deep breath and yelled at the skies.
“Regent, if you do not help us, then Xia Fukun can only sacrifice himself to save his father!”
Hearing Xia Fukun, Mu Yun raised an eyebrow, dumbfounded. But before he could react, a chuckle rang across Summer City.
“I thought you would be rather extraordinary since you killed Mu Yun’s grandson, but it seems I was wrong.”
Mu Yun saw Xia Kuangyun hurrying toward Xia Fukun’s side from the corner of his eyes. He opened his fist, trying to suck Xia Kuangyun back, only to realize that he had lost control.
Three figures appeared in Mu Yun’s sight slowly.
Realizing that it was the regent, a frown could be seen on Mu Yun’s face.
“Regent, are you going to get involved in this?”
The regent put on a smile and stood next to Xia Fukun, glancing at Mu Yun.
“Mu Yun, Summer City, as well as Xia Fukun, are under my protection starting today.”
Mu Yun gritted his teeth. After all, the regent was the strongest martial artist in the entire Yaslan Empire. However, he was determined to have Xia Fukun pay with his life.
“I’m also protected.”
The regent chuckled.
Hearing the regent’s words, Mu Yun’s face reddened with boiling anger as his jaw clamped tight
“My Baiyun Mountain Sect will never be able to coexist with the Xia family. Regent, is the Yaslan Empire going to go against the Baiyun Mountain Sect?”
“Of course not.”
The regent shook his head.
“Baiyun Mountain is part of the Yaslan Empire, so we obviously won’t go against you. Moreover…”
The regent took a look at Mu Yun.
“I have never once attached any importance to you.”
The regent smiled thinly. Within no time, the wind howled, surrounding the group.
This was it.
The major difference between a Supreme Realm martial artist and a Warrior Realm martial Artist that was about to break through.
