The voice of the State Teachers echoed out again. A disciple picked up a bamboo slip; the last ones to pick up bamboo slips were those of the top ten. Lin Feng picked up one. He opened it; there was no number on it this time, just the name of his opponent, Ya Wu Hen.
Lin Feng would fight against Ya Wu Hen, the Third Prince of Law. He was just slightly weaker than Ba Hei Long and Di Qing Long. He had the strength of the Half-Supreme God layer, but in terms of fighting abilities, he could easily compete with low-level Supreme Gods. Otherwise, he wouldn’t have been able to become the Third Prince of Law.
Ya Wu Hen looked over at Lin Feng in a cold and detached way, but quickly lowered his head again. He didn’t think that just because Lin Feng had been able to exchange a punch against Ba Hei Long, he would be able to defeat him.
Hu Yan Qing wasn’t as lucky. He had been qualified for the next round, so no matter what, he wouldn’t be able to defeat his opponent in the second round, but this time, his opponent was someone he didn’t want to fight, Yan Tian Jiao.
Hu Yan Qing had desired and admired Yan Tian Jiao greatly for a long time. This time, they were going to fight, how did he feel?
Fang Jun Sheng’s opponent was going to be the Fifth Prince of Law, Gou Hun Shuang Qiang Mu Sheng. They were similarly strong, both Half-Supreme Gods. It was impossible to predict who was going to win.
Ba Hei Long was going to fight against Bai Bian Tian Jun Quan Leng, the Sixth Prince of Law. They were both extremely strong. However, Lin Feng and Ya Wu Hen’s battle was the most anticipated. It would definitely be worth watching.
Regarding the other battles, Yan Tian Jiao vs. Hu Yan Qing, the dragons vs. their respective opponents; watching them was useless because everybody knew how those battles were going to end. The only one of those duels which wasn’t easy to predict was Fang Jun Sheng against Mu Sheng’s battle.
Hu Yan Qing knew he was going to lose, so all he could do was rely on Lin Feng. Even though he didn’t like Lin Feng and Lin Feng wasn’t a real member of Fortified Village, he still represented Fortified Village at the Great Competition. Hu Yan Zan had asked Lin Feng to do his best to finish in the top five; if Lin Feng did it, it would be great, but at the same time, the two brothers would be envious and jealous.
“Brother, don’t worry. We’ll have many opportunities to mess with him,” said Hu Yan Hao jokingly. Hu Yan Qing nodded agreement and walked to the center of the kwoon, then stopped in front of Yan Tian Jiao.
Lin Feng and Ya Wu Hen were also facing each other, only ten meters separated them. Faint threads of Qi emerged from their bodies. They didn’t look at each other with animosity, though.
“So you’re going to fight against Ba Hei Long behind the mountain?” asked Ya Wu Hen, glancing at Lin Feng.
Lin Feng nodded. It wasn’t a secret. Many people had heard him and Ba Hei Long talking. Lin Feng was actually quite excited about the battle, but did Ya Wu Hen have something in mind?
“I suggest you leave straight after the Great Competition. Even if you defeat Ba Hei Long, do you really think he’ll let you use him as a pet?” Ya Wu Hen frowned.
“What do you mean?” asked Lin Feng. He didn’t understand why he said that. Besides, Ya Wu Hen’s concern seemed genuine, like they were friends.
Ya Wu Hen shook his head, but didn’t say much. He just suggested that Lin Feng don’t offend Ba Hei Long; otherwise, there would be serious consequences. Lin Feng was convinced that Ya Wu Hen’s warning wasn’t ungrounded, though.
“Alright, I will be careful,” Lin Feng said smiling and nodding casually. He looked at Ya Wu Hen coolly and reached out his hand. His Qi turned ice-cold. Ya Wu Hen also started releasing ice-cold pure Qi. The atmosphere around them instantly became very dangerous.
“If you want to fight against Ba Hei Long, defeat me first. If you can’t defeat me, then you shouldn’t fight against him,” said Ya Wu Hen. Then he flashed ahead. He was incredibly fast, like a panther. In the blink of an eye, he was right in front of Lin Feng, throwing two punches. Lin Feng reacted really quickly. He raised his hands at the same time as Ya Wu Hen.
Their fists collided. Their differently colored godly auras collided as well, then they both flashed backwards. However, a dozen Godly Emperors too close to them were blown away. Those Godly Emperors’ faces instantly paled. They wanted to release pure Qi to protect themselves but they couldn’t.
Lin Feng frowned and flashed again. A black silhouette appeared, flew behind those Godly Emperors, and punched them aggressively. Energies surrounded the dozen Godly Emperors, then Lin Feng shouted furiously and slapped them. Instantly, the dozen Godly Emperors were pushed down to the ground, uninjured.
Many people stared at Lin Feng, dumbstruck. They wondered how he had done that. They didn’t think a Half-Supreme God could do such a thing. How could a Half-Supreme God make a dozen Godly Emperors fall to the ground with a single slap?
Ya Wu Hen looked at Lin Feng. He was startled, but he wasn’t scared. He wouldn’t come to conclusions before the end of the battle.
“No scar, no trace!” shouted Ya Wu Hen. His hair and robe fluttered in the wind, his robe was almost torn apart. He raised his thick arms; two circles of energy appeared, rotating extremely quickly before condensing. In the end, Ya Wu Hen threw out both his arms. His energies shot towards Lin Feng.
Many people saw only a shadow. Lin Feng felt a killing pressure. His opponent was using an extremely powerful celestial skill. Lin Feng took a deep breath. His eyes became bloodshot, and his demon Qi rolled in waves around him. It gave people the impression it was the end of the world.
“Demon Emperor Celestial Skill!” shouted Lin Feng fiercely, rising higher and higher in the sky. His voice reverberated far, far away. The taotie next to Hu Yan Qing, which initially looked calm and composed, suddenly panicked, as it it had seen something terrifying.
Many other people’s beasts panicked as if they had seen something terrifying. Everybody looked at Lin Feng.
Lin Feng looked like a demon at that moment, an almighty demon nobody could resist. He was in the middle of an ocean of pitch-black demon Qi. When people touched that demon Qi, they went crazy.
Ya Wu Hen’s energies collided with Lin Feng’s demon Qi, rolling out everywhere. The crowd quaked with fear, hoping Lin Feng’s demon energies wouldn’t reach them.
Ya Wu Hen howled furiously. He raised his hands and released even more energies. Lin Feng’s demon Qi weakened a little. Ya Wu Hen’s energies pressed towards Lin Feng, not slowing down.
Lin Feng’s expression didn’t change, he just smiled. He released space and time Dao, and the atmosphere around him changed. The terrifying energies penetrated into that different space, and his own demon Qi pushed towards Ya Wu Hen extremely quickly.
Ya Wu Hen’s expression changed quickly. He flashed up. Where he was just before, the ground became pitch-black and desolate, grass and flowers instantly withered. At the same time, energies exploded in front of Lin Feng. It sounded like something had just broken. It was his space and time bubble.
Lin Feng grunted with pain. He was pushed back a few steps when the energies reached him. Lin Feng didn’t try to dodge like Ya Wu Hen. But apart from the fact that his face had paled a little, he didn’t seem afriad or anything.
“Congratulations, you win,” said Ya Wu Hen, taking a deep breath and trying to calm down. He had no choice but to admit that Lin Feng had won. He didn’t have any other skills to use. All his other skills were less powerful than the one he had just used against Lin Feng.
Lin Feng had definitely suppressed him!
“You didn’t really lose. If I hadn’t used my space and time cage, the battle wouldn’t be over,” Lin Feng said, smiling calmly and trying to cheer Ya Wu Hen up.
Ya Wu Hen waved and said indifferently, “No need to cheer me up. You used a space and time cage, it’s part of your abilities. You won.
“Congratulations, you’re in the top five. Thanks to you, and only you, Fortified Village is in the top five,” said Ya Wu Hen, smiling indifferently. He walked away and left the kwoon.
He had lost. He hadn’t managed to finish in the top five this time. Because of that, maybe he wouldn’t be one of the Seven Princes of Law anymore in the future.
Lin Feng’s battle was over. Fang Jun Sheng and Mu Sheng’s battle was over, too. Fang Jun Sheng lost after one attack.
