PMG Chapter 719: Deadly Meeting
Duan Ren Huang was releasing a terrifying amount of energies.
There were his three friends and they were surrounded by deadly energies, but remained brave and proud. People admired and respected them.
Even though strong cultivators in the Continent of the Nine Clouds were respected more than the others, people also had compassion. Especially when good people were maltreated by evil people, Duan Ren Huang was detestable. Initially, they were all brothers and sisters, best friends, and now he wanted to kill them… He was detestable.
People admired Lin Hai and the two others, they were incredible and brave.
Even though they were going to die, they wanted to die as glorious heroes.
The threat of death was approaching, Duan Ren Huang’s energies were getting more and more intense. The three cultivators on the ground had their heads raised and were looking at him. Then they rose up in the air, unafraid of death.
“Roaaarrrr……!” a terrifying roaring sound spread in the air as the ground broke apart. The stone ape also turned into a beam of light and threw itself at Duan Ren Huang like a mountain.
“Die!” shouted Duan Ren Huang furiously. A sealed door illusions appeared, they contained some terrifying intent and their energy was terribly oppressive. Rumbling sounds spread in the air as the energies collided with the stone ape, it seemed like a mountain had been crushed.
“Die!” shouted Lin Hai furiously. Several terrifying punches filled with ice-cold energies spread in the air at the same time as Wu Qing’s sword energies, but they didn’t manage to destroy the sealed doors.
They were projected backwards when their energies collided against the sealed doors energies. Especially Yue Meng He, she was particularly affected by the attack and had brutally crashed onto the ground.
Those sealed doors were terrifying even though Lin Hai had broken through to the Tian Qi layer. Lin Hai felt like he had been crushed by the energies as blood splashed, he was also crushed onto the ground.
“Die!” said Duan Ren Huan looking as cruel as before. Meng Qing stood up, however a voice spread in the air and it came from the distance.
“No…..” said that voice in the distance. The crowd saw a beautiful woman in a cheong sam in the distance, it was Princess Duan Xin Ye.
Duan Xin Ye’s hair was messy and she looked panic-stricken, what was happening?
Wasn’t she getting married now? What was happening?
The guests were all running around wildly, the princess was turning her head and saw them. Her father and her brother looked ice-cold, she was terrified.
“Noooo…..” Duan Xin Ye couldn’t believe what was happening. Yue Meng He and the others were severely injured and they were lying on the ground. She had started crying when she saw them.
“I am so sorry, I didn’t know anything like this would happen!” said Duan Xin Ye when she saw that Yue Meng He and the others were bleeding. Duan Xin Ye suddenly felt guilty.
Yue Meng He smiled and touched Duan Xin Ye’s hair. She said in a warm and gentle way, “You silly girl, who could blame you? It has nothing to do with you.”
“But it’s because of me….” said Duan Xin Ye, she felt extremely guilty. She turned her head and looked at the king and her brother, she asked, “Why did you lie to me? Why did you use me?”
Duan Wu Ya and the king looked at her but remained silent. After a moment, Duan Wu Ya said, “You shouldn’t have come.”
“Indeed, I shouldn’t have come, but then I learnt what was happening. Should I have stayed away to regret it my entire life?” shouted Duan Xin Ye. “Everything was fake, you’re the one who gave me the poison last time. Only you could have done such a thing, I couldn’t believe it in the past but now I know that it’s you. You’ve always been plotting against Lin Feng, why!?”
The crowd sighed when they heard Duan Xin Ye, everything had been a plot… Working for the royal government was that way… Everything was about plotting against others in secret.
Unfortunately, that pure, innocent and beautiful girl had been at the center of the plot…
Nobody replied to Duan Xin Ye, her voice was just resonating in the air for a few seconds. The crowd was looking at her beautiful, pure and hopeless-looking face.
Duan Xin Ye stood up, she was in front of Yue Meng He and the others. She looked at the Duan Ren Huang, “If you want to kill someone, then kill me first!”
Duan Ren Huang looked at Duan Xin Ye, he looked like he didn’t care about her at all. He only cared about himself and Duan Wu Dao. He even cared about Yue Meng He and Lin Hai more than Duan Xin Ye.
However, Duan Ren Huang shouted, “You are a member of my family, I don’t want to kill you so move away.”
“I won’t, if you want to kill them, kill me first.” said Duan Xin Ye, still obstructing the way while gnashing her teeth. She looked like a determined young girl.
“Xin Ye, don’t worry, move away. This has nothing to do with you.” said Yue Meng He. That little girl was so stupid.
Duan Xin Ye kept shaking her head, she wasn’t going to move away. Everything was happening because of her, she would regret her entire life if they died and she lived.
“You want to die so I will help you.” said Duan Ren Huang while releasing some deadly energies.
The king and Duan Wu Ya remained silent, they were staring at the scene. Duan Xin Ye was just a toy for them.
“Bzzzz…..” The sound of a zither spread in the air. Immediately after a silhouette appeared in the crowd, moved out, and sat down cross-legged in the air. Some pure Qi became a cloud and that person had a zither on his lap.
A terrifying killer Qi appeared and was emerging out of the zither, it was fluttering and moving towards Duan Ren Huang.
“Someone else dares face Duan Ren Huang, how reckless!” thought the crowd. That person was a calm and serene-looking man. His hands were floating over the strings of the zither. That person didn’t even look at Duan Ren Huang.
“Someone else wants to die.” said Duan Ren Huang coldly. Duan Xin Ye was scared, she whispered, “teacher…”
That man was Yan Yu Ping Sheng.
Yan Yu Ping Sheng raised his head and looked at Duan Xin Ye, he looked calm and serene, he even smiled.
“Teacher, why…?” said Duan Xin Ye crying. She knew that Yan Yu Ping Sheng couldn’t rival Duan Ren Huang, so he was planning to die.
“Xin Ye, I’ve had only three students in my entire life: you, Duan Wu Ya and Wen Ao Xue. Lin Feng doesn’t count, maybe only for half. One of my students had become cruel and evil, using his own sister as a toy. He wouldn’t even hesitate to kill her, then that same sister is also one of my students and the wife of my half-student… how could I, Yan Yu Ping Sheng, not protect you?”
Yan Yu Ping Sheng kept playing the zither as an infinity of deadly energies were emerging out of it and moving towards Duan Ren Huang. However, that energy wasn’t injuring him at all.
“Amongst my students, you are the purest and the most innocent. Wen Ao Xue is also extremely smart, Duan Wu Ya is evil and likes manipulating people more than anything. The one that makes me the most satisfied is Lin Feng, but he only counts as a half-student. Maybe he isn’t as perfect as Wen Ao Xue but his natural abilities, his love and affection for his loved ones, his ardor… all of those things make me satisfied about Lin Feng. I consider that you, Wen Ao Xue and Lin Feng are my only real students. Duan Wu Ya is the one I helped the most and the one who wants to betray you today. He doesn’t even want to help you and doesn’t care about you dying.” said Yan Yu Ping Sheng. He continued playing the zither while talking. The energies had already enveloped his entire body.
Duan Ren Huang groaned coldly and a terrifying intent crashed onto the zither which stopped moving. Duan Ren Huang then jumped forwards and roared furiously. A terrifyingly pure killer Qi then moved towards Yan Yu Ping Sheng and in a flash, Yan Yu Ping Sheng was crushed by the energy… And the melody of the zither stopped….
The music stopped and Yan Yu Ping Sheng died….
“Teacher!!!!” whispered Duan Xin Ye. When she saw Yan Yu Ping Sheng disappear from the sky, she burst into tears. Her teacher had died, his music would never again play in Xue Yue, ever again!
