Chapter 47: Anyone Who Crosses This Line Will Be Killed Without Mercy
“You have already been bewitched.
Youre stuck in the past when others are looking to the future.”
“Looking to the future…”
Yang Zhengyi muttered.
He shook his head when he saw that a whirlpool was already forming on the surface of the water.
“Theres no turning back! If I dont kill King El and avenge those who have fallen, I will drive myself crazy sooner or later.
“You should go.
This isnt your battle to fight.
If you stay here, youll die.”
Ye Xiao did not speak again.
Without understanding the suffering of others, one should not advise others to be kind.
That was a principle that he had learned a long time ago.
Just like in his previous life, there were many people who would always ask,
“Your life is almost gone.
Why dont you be brave and live happily every day for the rest of your life”
If they had to endure nausea, retching, and hair loss brought about by the chemotherapy every day… Enduring the physical deterioration, nerve pain, and the fear of the constantly approaching death brought by the pain.
Having to count down the days until it all ends.
At that point, how many of them could live each day bravely and happily as they advise others to do so
Nevertheless, he would never agree with Yang Zhengyi.
That was because he had caused the death or indirectly caused the death of so many innocent people, tainting their souls and making them turn on each other.
They were powerless to resist, just like how Yang Zhengyi was powerless to resist the people he had mentioned.
However, Yang Zhengyi had good intentions in his heart.
He had participated in the killing of King El and saved many people.
Who was going to return the favor
Who understood his sacrifice and grief in that great battle
When a great hero who had saved countless people turned into a murderer, whose fault was it
Was it everyones fault
Who dared to say that Yang Zhengyi did not have the right to seek revenge against King El
Ye Xiao was not a law enforcer after all.
He did not have the qualifications to judge Yang Zhengyi.
“Before I leave, I would like to ask one last question.
Why did you use Gu Hai to lure me away With your cultivation, you shouldnt care about someone like me, right”
Yang Zhengyi smiled.
“Call me sentimental, call me hypocritical.
“When I look at you, I see my past self.
You are very similar to me when I was young.
You are unknown and like to cultivate alone.
“But you are stronger than me.
At such a young age, you have already reached the grandmaster rank.
“In the future, you might even become the greatest martial artist of the human race!
“I cant bear to make a move against you.
“The people I hate are the higher-ups.
Its King El.
I dont hate you, nor do I hate the human race.
“I cant destroy a rising star of the human race for the sake of my own revenge!
“Its just that… I hope that you wont follow my old path.
Humans should be somewhat selfish.
Sacrificing themselves for others will eventually drive them crazy.”
Ye Xiao exhaled a mouthful of turbid air.
After obtaining the answer, he turned around and left.
In a few breaths, he had already disappeared from the riverside.
However, the moment he left the riverside, a thousand-foot-long glow descended and fiercely landed by the riverside.
Along with a violent explosion, a thousand-foot-long huge mark was blasted open on the ground.
Ye Xiaos voice immediately came from behind.
“Jianghai city is where I live.
I have my best friends here.
I dont want anyone destroying the peace of Jianghai city again.
“Be it you or King El.
Anyone who crosses this line will be killed without mercy!”
Yang Zhengyi was stunned and did not know whether to laugh or cry.
‘This brat has quite a temper.
A small grandmaster dares to speak to me like this.
Do you think you are part of the divine sect
However, after cursing, his expression gradually became serious.
The whirlpool on the surface of the river was getting bigger and bigger一its diameter had already spread over a hundred feet, almost reaching the shore.
A huge bolt of lightning suddenly descended from the sky.
Countless dark clouds quickly gathered, enveloping the sky.
The clear sky instantly became as dark as night.
In the martial arts academy, Qin Shenglong, who was exchanging blows with Piao Jiansheng, stopped what he was doing and looked at the abnormal phenomenon in the sky with a solemn expression.
“Whats going on How did the sky become like this And the sound of the saber just now… Whats happening”
Piao Jiansheng also looked at the sky with a serious expression.
“Its not a natural phenomenon.
Im afraid that something bad is happening.”
Ouyang Yunzhong from the library quickly flew to the roof and looked at the riverside.
Not long after, the commander of Jianghai citys garrison, Nangong Ling, also came to her side.
“With this aura, Im afraid that the other partys cultivation has already reached the grandmaster rank! Who is it”
Ouyang Yunzhongs expression was solemn as he asked that question.
“I just found out that the library was robbed and an extremely important document was lost.
It was King Els map!”
Hearing those words, Nangong Lings expression could not help but change.
“King El The divine-level star beast that invaded Jianghai city during the Great Beast Calamity, King El”
“Thats him! During that battle, the martial artists of Jianghai city suppressed him, but they hadnt killed him.
Instead, they split him up and hid him in the surrounding cities.
Theres also a portion of his body that Jianghai city used to improve the spiritual energy of our city.
“However, even if its only a portion, its strength wont be weak.
At least, it wont be weaker than a great grandmaster!”
Nangong Ling gulped.
“Then why dont you quickly arrange for the citizens to be moved”
Ouyang Yunzhong looked at him.
“How Once its out, even if we let them run for two hours, would they be able to escape”
“Are we just going to sit here and wait for death”
“I dont think so.
I can sense that theres the aura of a powerful martial artist! Perhaps its that mysterious saber wielder from our Jianghai city, or perhaps its that impressive swordmaster.
“I can only pray to the heavens for blessings.”
The entire city was soon filled with sirens.
“All citizens of Jianghai city, please pay attention.
Severe weather changes have been detected.
All citizens, please return home as soon as possible and dont stay outdoors.”
Along with a loudclang sound, a bolt of lightning entered the huge whirlpool along the riverside.
In the next second, a terrifying aura rose rapidly from within.
“Hahahaha… Its been over 100 years.
This king has finally come out!”
Amidst the excited shouts, a strong man over seven feet tall with two thick goat horns on his head flew out from the bottom of the river and stood proudly in the sky.
The lightning tore through the sky and landed on his muscular body, creating an electric spark, but it did not harm him in the slightest.
He patted the remaining sparks on his chest and his gaze landed on Yang Zhengyi by the river bank.
His eyebrows rose slightly.
“Eh I recognize you, the young martial artist from the past.
I had not expected to meet an old friend right after I escaped.
Yang Zhengyi finished the wine in one gulp.
He threw the bottle away, picked up the longsword on his back, and slowly rose into the air.
His eyes revealed a cold glint.
“Its been more than 100 years.
Youve lived long enough.
Ill send you to hell!”
