The effects of the pill were so miraculous that Ouyang Hua found himself stunned by how fast it worked. There was a flash of light that exploded from his body before his wounds began to knit together and his soulforce already start to replenish itself!
He cried out in warning. While Zi Jin was healing him…Lin Dongxiao was approaching them!
"Damn!! Why haven’t they started attacking yet!!"
Suspicion and anger flooded Huo Zhenting’s eyes. He couldn’t help but look all around the battlefield as if searching for someone when he was away from Yang Yao.
"Dongfang Ming…Mo Ni!! Why haven’t they appeared yet! Do they want to have us killed?! What are they doing?!"
In a small courtyard on the eastern peak of the Crafting School. A small room with all sorts of cute toys and decorations.
A frightened blue-robed girl sat on top of her bed. In her arms was a small white boar.
"Xiao Rourou, what’s happening outside? Why is everyone screaming? Why isn’t mom and sis Yun back yet…"
Huangfu Rui sobbed as she hugged the little boar.
"Don’t worry. They’ll be fine. It’s dangerous outside, let’s stay inside for now." The small white boar consoled her.
"Mm…" Huangfu Rui nodded her head. She was about to say something when she suddenly froze up. Her eyes dilated as if reacting to something before they glossed over.
She stood up from the bed and began to move toward the door as if being called. As she dropped from the bed she let go of the small boar she had been holding.
Alarmed, the boar chased after her, "Xiao Rui! What’s wrong! Don’t go out there!!"
The door to their room suddenly opened up. The red magiboar froze up in fear as someone from the outside walked into the room…
Next Chapter High up above the clouds several kilometers away from the Crafting School.
Several figures stood above the clouds. Leading the pack was a cold-faced youth. Mo Ni.
Mo Ni had someone else standing right next to him. Someone that was a little skinny, but equally sinister-looking. It was Mo Ni’s soulbeast partner, the Black Dragon King.
And behind them stood another two people, one of which was cloaked entirely in a blood-red theme. His robes were blood-red and so was his hair. He even reeked of blood as if he had just stepped out from a pool of blood.
The other person was dressed in black robes that made it difficult for people to see what he looked like. He did appear to be somewhat sensitive to the cold, as something underneath his robes give off a soft noise like the soft growlings of a soulbeast that could come out any second now and tear apart anything closeby.
Both of these individuals were extremely powerful and had the same level of strength as the Black Dragon King and Mo Ni. But for some reason, they took up bodyguard positions behind the two instead of beside them.
"What is it, why haven’t we attacked yet?"
Watching the battle, the Black Dragon King gave a glance over to Mo Ni to ask.
Mo Ni shook his head. "No need. The Crafting School won’t be having any more Soul Emperors come out. If we appear now it’ll ruin the surprise. We should be more patient and wait until they’re the ones that grow impatient…Dongfang Ming is nearly done. We’ll be able to force out the rest of the secluded individuals."
"Are you saying the Crafting School might have a Soul Saint?"
"It’s not likely. If they did have one then they wouldn’t be fighting so hard right now…my father and the elders believe that if that person is alive right now, then he is most definitely trying to ascend to Sainthood. It’s very possible that that person is dead…Our primary goal is to confirm if he’s alive or not. If he’s not dead then we’ll have to ask our ancestor to do something…"
Mo Ni began to smile sadistically. "But no matter the case, the Crafting School will die today!"
"I wonder what expression you’ll have when you see the ruined state of the Crafting School-or maybe you won’t even be able to come back to see this?"
Mo Ni looked pleased once more as he thought about something, his eyes staring off toward the west.
Sensing something rumble in his space ring, Mo Ni summoned a small gray gem to his hand. Curiously, he watched as the gem floated up from his palm and started to shine. It rotated several times before pointing at the direction he had just been looking at.
"Teacher Lu?" Mo Ni stared quizzically at the gem, "Is he done with the Water School already?!"
He looked down to the Crafting School ahead of him for several seconds to think.
"Let’s go to teacher Lu first!"
Lu Suxing traveled through the skies at breakneck speeds. In his hand was a small gray stone similar to the one Mo Ni had.
Lu Suxing was none other than the Mid-stage Soul Emperor from the Soul Refining School that fled from the Water School battle. The reason why he fled the scene was so he could report to Mo Ni about what happened.
"I’m almost there…they have to have started already!"
Lu Suxing thought to himself as he flew. He could tell from the skies far away where the Crafting School was that the battle started already.
It was at that moment he came to an immediate stop in the air.
Standing in front of him was Mo Ni and the others.
"Mo Ni!" Lu Suxing exclaimed.
"Teacher Lu." Mo Ni nodded his head. "Did you come here to be our reinforcements? Why just you? Has the problems been resolved yet? And did you find and kill Bai Yunfei?"
Lu Suxing smiled bitterly at his words. "We…no. Our attack on the Water School failed. I’m afraid everyone else but me is dead…It’s all because of that Bai Yunfei. Our plan against him failed. His strength was far beyond what we thought! Yue Kuangfeng was easily killed by him, even…"
"What did you say?!" The smile was wiped away from Mo Ni’s face at once. "Impossible!" He shouted.
"Bai Yunfei shouldn’t be anything higher than an Early-stage Soul Emperor! Didn’t you bring him to the Ninth Heavens?!"
"We did. Our teleportation stone managed to bring him and Yue Kuangfeng to the Ninth Heavens. But…"
Lu Suxing gave a brief recap of what had happened to the Water School. As he talked, Mo Ni’s face continued to drop more and more until his mouth was noticeably wide open.
"Im…impossible! Why is he so strong?!"
He cried out in fury and irritation. There was also another emotion in his voice he’d never admit to having…
"Our business at the Water School is done. It won’t be long until Bai Yunfei is back. What is the situation looking like at the Crafting School?"
Mo Ni wanted to vent more about the previous topic but relented after a moment.
"It didn’t start as well as we hoped. The Crafting School seemed to know we were coming and activated the barrier before we could attack. Dongfang Ming managed to break the barrier and bring out a few of the secluded crafters. Gui Nu and Feng Mo have yet to act, but if you’re here…we should be able to destroy the Crafting School even if they bring out another two or three Soul Emperors!"
"Then Shen Pojun…"
"He won’t be reaching Sainthood even if he’s alive. We’ll have the ancestor come out if he’s alive.
"Let’s go then." He beckoned. "Even if Bai Yunfei isn’t dead we’ll be sure to turn him into a mourning do-what’s that?"
He whirled around suddenly to stare at the black and red ‘guards’ behind him.
The two guards were growling, but neither moved from their spots. They simply stood there to glare in one direction.
Realizing what this meant, Lu Suxing whirled around to stare in the same direction they were!
There was nothing Lu Suxing could see as far as the eyes could see. But there was something in the air that made him freeze up with disbelief.
"This aura…it’s Bai Yunfei! He’s…he’s back!! How?!"
Next Chapter A wave of red light began to spread across the sky from the direction Lu Suxing was looking at. The red light was followed by a powerful but familiar aura Lu Suxing and Mo Ni were both acquainted with!
How could they possibly forget that aura! Lu Suxing had nearly died to this aura just two days ago!
The reason why he was shocked was because…he couldn’t understand how this person was here already!
Was Bai Yunfei chasing after him this entire time to kill him!?
The thought sent shivers up Lu Suxing’s spine.
Am I Crazy To Love You He’s here already?!"
Mo Ni cried out in disbelief at the aura.
He cursed as he turned back to look at Mt. Crimson. The more he looked at the light above the mountain, the more he hesitated.
"Pah!" He sneered at last, "Who cares if he’s back! If he wants to be here so badly…we’ll kill him right in front of his home! Or maybe we’ll be kind enough to let him watch his school die in front of him!"
He turned back to Gui Nu and Feng Mo. "It doesn’t matter the reason why he’s back! He’s here now, and that’s all that matters! He must’ve brought someone from the Water School with him, but he’s still only an Early-stage Soul Emperor! Bai Yunfei, his soulbeast partner, and Xiao Binzi…they’re all Early-stage Soul Emperors…I doubt we won’t be able to kill them!"
"You want to fight them here?!" Lu Suxing exclaimed.
"It’ll be harder to fight them if they get back to the Crafting School!" Mo Ni retorted.
Lu Suxing looked hesitant. He looked like he wanted to argue with Mo Ni, but he relented in the end. "Fine! What is your plan then?"
"Feng Mo is already close to being out of control. We’ll let him go first to see how Bai Yunfei will react." Mo Ni waved his hand at the violently-spasming figure behind him.
"Just him alone?"
"He doesn’t distinguish between friend or foe when he goes berserk. It’s safer to send him out by himself. He’ll probably be able to kill those with Bai Yunfei, if not Bai Yunfei himself. We can pop out when the opportunity is right to kill Bai Yunfei then!"
Lu Suxing narrowed his eyes. Mo Ni was planning to sacrifice Feng Mo to see how Bai Yunfei would react. Feng Mo wasn’t someone so useless that the school could cut their losses so easily. They spent plenty of time and energy ‘raising’ this person. To lose him here would be a great loss to the school.
But then again, Feng Mo was raised for the sole purpose of dealing with Bai Yunfei. Lu Suxing could relent to that.
"That Bai Yunfei has the Interdimensional Phantasm, don’t get yourself caught in it!"
Lu Suxing snarled. Just thinking about the Interdimensional Phantasm being used on him brought back painful memories.
"The Interdimensional Phantasm sends people back out after a minute. We can use Feng Mo as bait to have them use the Interdimensional Phantasm on it!"
On the other side, a streak of light was currently about ten kilometers away from Mo Ni and the others.
Inside this streak of light was Bai Yunfei, Xiao Binzi, and Li Chengfeng. They set out for the Crafting School a day later than Lu Suxing, but they were ultimately faster than him due to the Core Stone. It was a ‘coincidence’ that the two managed to arrive here at the same time.
They soon came to a stop just about five hundred meters away from Mo Ni.
"It’s you!! Mo Ni!"
Bai Yunfei roared when he saw who it was standing in the way between him and the Crafting School.
"That’s right, it’s me!" Mo Ni sneered. "So you’re alive after all those years. How unfortunate today will be your death day! Yours and the Crafting School!"
Mo Ni had barely finished speaking when the loud roar of a beast erupted from the black-robed individual. As if the shackles had been undone from it, the soulbeast pounced toward Bai Yunfei with a malevolent aura!
