Mu Yi didn’t give up when facing the people who were much stronger than him. The people and the old Taoist Priest were of the same generation which meant their strength was at the same level. Ten years ago, the four Envoys reached the top of the second difficulty. If they had not broken through to the third difficulty, their strength must have improved.
The old Taoist Priest was dead. Leng Yu was breaking a chakra and fixing it. She was at the top of the second difficulty but was not perfect. After she reached perfection, she would make even greater progress. No one knew anything about the Envoy of the Cyan Dragon’s Flag, it was almost as if he was non-existent.
Only the Envoy of the White Tiger’s Flag was active in the world. He had already reached perfection at the top of the second difficulty. Facing people like this intrigue wouldn’t work. All he could do was exert all his strength and gain a chance to win. Mu Yi knew that he was not equal to the Envoy of the White Tiger’s Flag. It was good to be confident, it was dangerous to be arrogant.
“If you have an accident, I won’t live alone.” Yun Mengxuan said.
“Don’t worry. There will be people to care for you if something happens.” Mu Yi said.
He thought of Leng Yu. Did she expect this would happen when she asked him to take over as the Envoy of the Vermilion Bird’s Flag? The only one who could protect his foundation from the Envoy of the White Tiger’s Flag was Yun Mengxuan.
Yun Mengxuan didn’t respond. The reason why she was willing to die with Mu Yi was because of her identity and the seal of the Rosefinch. Mu Yi could feel that the white line in the dark had become stronger these days. The converted Power of Faith was absorbed by the Nanming Li Fire but a little Power of Faith couldn’t make it evolve.
There were no fishing boats on Dongting Lake the day of the battle. There were many people from Tibetan Sparrow Hall around the lake making sure no one would interrupt the Battle. Mu Yi stood on the bow of a boat. He was accompanied by Big Slave, Yun Mengxuan and Xue Zifeng. As for Nian Nuer, she was in the Bamboo Tree of Life.
The battle with the Envoy of the White Tiger’s Flag was dangerous, but it was also an opportunity for Yun Mengxuan and other people to spectate. Mu Yi didn’t look for him. The boat was slowly moving across the lake with no destination. He believed that the Envoy of the White Tiger’s Flag would find him.
A figure appeared on the lake. He looked like an immortal walking on the waves. Mu Yi stepped out onto the lake causing a ripple on the surface. He walked out to meet him. They were now only 30 meters apart. The ship that Mu Yi took retreated. They knew that if they stayed, they would disturb him.
“Are you the Envoy of the White Tiger’s Flag?” Mu Yi asked.
The person was very tall and wearing a mask on his face. There was no Qi around his body. Just standing there, he gave off the feeling that he had no flaws.
“Yes, you are younger than I thought.” The Envoy of the White Tiger’s Flag said.
“You are more mysterious than I thought.” Mu Yi said, insinuating that he dared not show his true face.
The Envoy of the White Tiger’s Flag didn’t care and said lightly, “If you win, you will know.”
“Well, I’d like to see what the Envoy of the White Tiger’s Flag looks like.” Mu Yi said and moved to attack.
The surrounding water was stirred up. He disappeared in the spray. In the past half a month, what Mu Yi studied the most was Yu’s Steps. Yu’s Steps could not improve his strength but could make his speed faster and more unpredictable. He had even made a breakthrough.
The highest level of Yu’s Steps was walking with the principles of Taoist astrology which could attract the strength of the earth and the sky. Mu Yi could only integrate his figure into the surrounding area like he was integrating into the water, which was similar to the Taoist method of hiding. The principle was quite different though. If Mu Yi wanted to be invisible, he needed speed and covering water.
The Envoy of the White Tiger’s Flag kept raising waves around him and wrapping him in them. He was extremely calm and had his hands leisurely behind his back. There was a square under his feet that looked like a mirror. Suddenly, a green bamboo stick penetrated the water curtain aiming for the Envoy of the White Tiger’s Flag’s eyebrow.
Finally, the Envoy of the White Tiger’s Flag moved. A virtual shadow appeared in his place. The bamboo stick could only break the virtual shadow. Before the bamboo stick had recovered, a finger was aimed at it. The bamboo stick collided with the finger.
The Envoy of the White Tiger’s Flag trembled a little. The calm he exuded was finally broken. The bamboo stick disappeared as a punch was thrown at his back. The Envoy of the White Tiger’s Flag turned around and grabbed the fist.
The people in the distance could only see a heavy water curtain and moving shadows. They couldn’t see the real battle but still felt astounded. Compared to the two strong experts, Xue Zifeng felt a little depressed. However, when he saw that there was no change in Big Slave’s expression, he straightened up because he knew that everyone was growing step by step.
As long as he worked hard, he would reach such a level in the future. He thought he was strong-minded before, but found that he was not as good as Big Slave. He could not catch up with Mu Yi so he decided to follow Big Slave.
After two strikes, Mu Yi knew of the power of the Envoy of the White Tiger’s Flag. He pulled out two Five Thunders Charms and used them. Two big lightning bolts fell and drowned the Envoy of the White Tiger’s Flag in water and light. Mu Yi felt bad, because the aura of the Envoy of the White Tiger’s Flag disappeared.
The electricity was flowing like countless snakes on the water. If Mu Yi didn’t have achievements in the thunder technique, he would be affected. However, after practicing with the strength of the earth and the sky, he could even inhale lightning.
Mu Yi felt the aura appear again suddenly. He used the last two Five Thunders Charms quickly. The lake was turbulent like a giant demon was raging under the water. Only in this field, could the Five Thunders Charm be most effective. The Envoy of the White Tiger’s Flag’s Qi control was perfect so it was hard to attack him.
Mu Yi could catch his breath now. It was a pity that he could only carry a few Five Thunders Charms. Otherwise, he would wield dozens of Five Thunders Charms and kill the Envoy of the White Tiger’s Flag.
