Chapter 356: Trying to Steal a Chicken Only to End-up Losing the Rice Used to Lure it
Translator: Novel Saga Editor: Novel Saga
"Oh God, Brother! Youve got to speak faster listening to your words becomes very hard for me if you speak like that" Sikong An Ye groaned. He had managed to fight-off several powerful Xuan Beasts a while ago. However, Duanmu Chao Fans manner of speech had left him injured.
They were unaware as to what was happening in that outrageous scene. However, a man of Jun Wu Yis caliber had understood a few things very clearly. [A very able person is helping us out by orchestrating this whole drama. But, wheres the director of this show?]
Duanmu Chao Fan finally wielded his long sword again. His sword glittered with silver light. He could finally coordinate better. Then, he took a graceful stance. In fact, his stance was an exhibition of excellent martial arts in itself. He then surged forward, and tried to strike the Golden Tiger. The Duanmu Chief wished to grab the tiger by its tail, but the tiger would never allow him to do that. And so, the war between Man and Xuan Beast continued.
Baili Luo Yun wasnt too far off. And, his display had been even more exemplary. In fact, he seemed worthy of the genius moniker since he was only at the Jade Xuan realm. He hadnt fallen into a disadvantageous position even though he was attacking and defending against an enemy of Level Nine. Hed give a loud roar, and would fight lustily as the dust would rise-up around him. In fact, he had even gained an upper hand.
However, his two Sky Xuan uncles were rather unfortunate. They had nearly been turned into grounded-meat by several Level Eight Xuan Beasts
These circumstances were quite ironic. The two Sky Xuan experts had been certain that theyd be able to rely on their strength to make an escape. They only needed to confirm Baili Luo Yuns death before they left. He may have been a genius, but the youngster was still a mere Jade Xuan expert. Therefore, his death was sure to come early; he stood no chance. And, those two were simply waiting to watch him die.
However, they hadnt expected him to pick his sword, and not die when he shouldve a thousand times over. The two men had been left stunned by this. And then, they found themselves surrounded by many high-level Xuan Beasts. Baili Luo Yun a Jade Xuan expert was fighting with vigor. And yet, those two Sky Xuan experts couldnt even move. They were soon eaten alive
Those two had died without understanding what was going on!
It was a very clever plot
Blood-curdling screams were being heard from everywhere part of the battlefield. Those who had decided to break formation and retreat the Xue Hun Manor, the Silver Blizzard City, and the rest of the men from every powerful family had soon been caught in a crazy and deadly encirclement. Blood splashed every other moment, and the dismembered limbs flew into the sky. Someone or the other was dying every second
Big Bear crisscrossed through the battlefield. Big Bear had tough skin and strong bones; so did his fellow Beast Kings Tiger and the Lion King. They disregarded the attacks that were launched on them, and charged into the Xue Hun Manors warriors. Then, they turned and moved-about the Xue Hun Manors formation. The three of them continued to launch powerful attacks, and kept crashing into everyone around them. The three Beast Kings ended-up cutting a path through the Xue Hun Manors formation as a result.
The troops of the Xue Hun Manor descended into utter chaos. They were first divided into two groups. Then, they were forced to divide into four groups, and were eventually left to fight separately. Then, numerous Xuan Beasts made their way into their broken formation, and surrounded them. This resulted in continuous screams of despair that shook the sky
The original plan was that Jun Wu Yi and his men would die. But, their own people wouldnt sustain many losses. In fact, the Silver Blizzard City and the Xue Hun Manors people werent even expected to receive any injuries
The eyes of all the Great Masters and the Spirit Xuan elders had nearly popped-out of their sockets as they stared from the hilltop in disbelief
[Whats going on?]
[This is extremely unreasonable!]
"So, thats how it was! I finally understand!" the Solitary Falcon was shocked, and twirled a strand of his hair.
"You understand?" Bu Kuang Feng was puzzled, "What do you understand? Quickly explain to this old man!"
"Master Bu, cant you see?" Solitary Falcon triumphantly pointed his finger, "Great Master Li had planned a purge for his Xue Hun Manor! And, he had also involved the Silver Blizzard City in it! Li Jue Tians original plan was "Im not feeling well about some guys. And, youre not feeling any better about a few of yours. But, I have a way of making us feel good even though were feeling sad right now. And, their devastation would make me happy! Cant you see it Master Bu? Its so obvious"
Lei Bao Yu and Bu Kuang Feng spat out in contempt when they heard that. [Fool! Cant you see how shocked Li Jue Tian is? Why would he wish to purge his Xue Hun Manor? The Xue Hun Manor is his lifes work! Its value is only second to his son Li Teng Yun in his heart! Li Jue Tian is no fool. So, why would he dig his own grave?]
[But, how the hell is this happening in front of us if thats not the case?]
Li Teng Yun gaped. His face was ashen pale, and his lips trembled; he looked lifeless. He suddenly felt great regret. In fact, he could faintly feel his legs going half-dead
Li Jue Tians hands were clenched tightly. He felt extreme rage.
He wouldve been an idiot if he still hadnt been able to figure out that he had been played. However, he couldnt understand that whod have such a heavenly skill that they could order the Xuan Beast Kings to play out such a big farce?
"Argh!" a blood curdling scream rang out. A Spirit Xuan expert from the Xue Hun Manor had been hit by Big Bears palms and a leg. Blood gushed out from his body as a result. But, Big Bear smiled in an evil manner, and continued to attack. He quickly landed an explosive punch. Then, Big Bear threw out a kick, and made his other legs crisscross with the first one. The Spirit Xuan expert had already sustained serious injuries. His strength was nothing compared to Big Bears. And, Big Bear wasnt done even after he had broken the other partys legs. Therefore, he resolutely kicked his lower back.
A disembodied leg flew high into the sky, and sprayed a lot of blood around. Moreover, the rest of that Spirit Xuan experts body was kicked high into the sky while he was still alive. Blood gushed out from each one of the seven orifices in his head. Big Bear jumped, and caught up with the body in the air. Then, he landed two quick punches. "Bang! Bang!" the punches hit that expert in succession, and continuous snapping sounds were heard. In fact, the crackling sounds had been very crisp in their make
Big Bear roared loudly, and caught the thighs of his victim. Then, his chest muscles became taught, and he started to hiss as his arms pulled the victims body wide. The Spirit Xuan expert was then torn into halves in midair. His vital organs then poured out of his once-body, and crashed onto the ground.
Screams of panic and shock reverberated throughout the battlefield. However, Big Bear merely laughed as that bloodied body dropped to the ground. It seemed as if a tiger had slaughtered a sheep.
Li Jue Tian trembled, and couldnt help but take a step forward. His mouth opened a little as a look of pain flashed across his face. But, the Lord of Tian Fa was looking at him. In fact, they tilted their head as they looked at him. It was obvious that they would step-in if Li Jue Tian were to get involved!
Li Jue Tian saw the flesh and the blood of his people flying-about, and he heard their screams. He felt the urge to open his mouth, and concede defeat on many occasions. But, he used the entirety of his willpower to control himself, and didnt make this decision. His face was still calm and tranquil. It seemed as if the people getting slaughtered below hadnt been trained by his hands as if they were merely trash to his eyes.
The human army had been doomed to suffer a crushing defeat even before the battle had started. The difference in the strengths of the two sides was too great. To explain with an example The Xuan Beasts had prepared a force of elite experts. But, the human allied army had no preparation, and had basically assembled an inexperienced mob.
However, the Tian Fa wouldve been forced to pay a huge price for victory if the human army had followed Jun Wu Yis strategy. After all, many strong individuals were present within their ranks. And, they couldve made up for the difference in strength if they had been backed by a good strategy.
However, there was internal strife within the allied forced. So, they had disobeyed their orders, and had rushed forward. And, the defeat of the allied human forced had become foreclosed conclusion from that point onwards that. They would see no luck! And, there would be no hope for change of tides!
The traps were still present on the battlefield, but there was no one to follow-up. The Xuan Beasts would fall into them, but theyd quickly jumped out. And, theyd obviously become more ferocious after that.
Li Jue Tian had become a sore loser. He couldnt even afford to admit defeat to save his forces. He was reputed as the Second Great Master throughout the continent. So, he would lose face if he admitted defeat. Moreover, the Lord of Tian Fa wasnt far-off, and that earth-shaking expert was watching him. Therefore, Li Jue Tian would have to take his consent even if he wanted to concede.
However, any attempts to seek their consent after his display was a very ridiculous notion. It was impossible!
Therefore, Li Jue Tian was inwardly left to pray [Why dont they just run away if they arent a match for the enemy? The Xuan Beasts wouldnt chase them to the ends of the earth to kill them, right? They only want a victory at this point; thats all.]
However, they hadnt tried to flee in the beginning. And, it was too late if they wanted to try that now.
He had intended to entrap Jun Wu Yi. But, this had turned out like the situation where one tries to steal a chicken only to end up losing the rice used to lure it. In fact, it was like he had lost the entire jar of rice!
The three Xuan Beast Kings eyed the humans like a hunter eyes its prey. They divided had three-thousand-seven-hundred Xuan Beasts into several assault groups to attack in a vicious manner. The Xue Hun Manors seven-hundred men had been reduced to around two-hundred. The Silver Blizzard City hadnt suffered any losses yet since their comparative individual strength was much higher. But, they had also started to become weak and weary
The Third, Sixth and Ninth elders had formed a ring along with the Silver Citys Seven Swords. These people put-together had a combined strength much higher than that of ten Spirit Xuan experts. Xiao Han and Mu Xue Tong were protected inside this enclosure. Anyway, it wasnt like those two were ordinary experts either. So, the Xuan Beasts couldnt harm them either.
However, they could only protect themselves when faced with that wave of Xuan Beasts.
However, Xiao Hans eyes were already bloodshot inside the encirclement. He had become irritated, and could explode any moment like a maniac. He stamped his feet and shouted, "Why? Why so many Xuan Beasts are present here when there are none attacking Jun Wu Yi? Why hasnt that cripple died yet? I want him dead! Why isnt he dead?! Jun Wu Yi! Why arent you dead?! Argh...!"
Jun Wu Yis situation was rather peculiar in that bitter and chaotic battle. Xiao Han had first taken pleasure in his misfortune, but he was shocked at the moment. In fact, he could only resign himself to the Xuan Beasts besiege as he watched from afar. Xiao Han had already been forced to endure such deathly pressure. So, his mind couldnt endure such grief anymore. And, he blindly continued to shout like a madman as result of this
He had prepared his frame of mind to watch Jun Wu Yis death. An outsider couldnt understand why this was such a huge problem for him at this moment.
Jun Wu Yi had wanted to kill Xiao Han with his sword and that too for over ten years!
So, wouldnt Xiao Han also have wished to kill Jun Wu Yi the same? He too had desired it for ten years. In fact, he had wanted it for several months more than Jun Wu Yi had
The experts sent by the other families had already died except for some of the strongest Spirit Xuan and Sky Xuan ones. They were still struggling with each others support. However, the rest of the army had been wiped out.
They may have been defeated, and Jun Wu Yi may have died if they had acted in accordance to Jun Wu Yis plan. But, these Spirit Xuan experts wouldve managed to survive, and wouldve returned safely even if their army had been defeated. In fact, more-than-half of the Sky Xuan experts wouldve managed to return safe and sound!
They wouldve been defeated, but they wouldnt have lost the core of their strength. And, Jun Wu Yi had been confident of achieving that!
However, these men were scared of Li Jue Tian and his authority. So, they had chosen to throw-in their lot with Li Jue Tian instead. They had followed after the Xue Hun Manor, but they hadnt anticipated that rejoicing in someone elses misfortune and kicking them when they are down would bring about their funeral.
The meaner the persons nature the quicker their deaths would come in a battle this brutal.
Wasnt this a warning?!
That one-sided slaughter was slowly coming to an end. No one had noticed, but the screams had already become sparse. The bellowing roars also became broken. Only Jun Wu Yis party had the same energy as before and so did their opponents. And, they were attacking hard. Their fights had become an intense event.
The Young Master Jun finally made himself visible. He walked to the top of the hillside where the Solitary Falcon stood. Everything was going according to the plan he had scripted out. In fact, things were going very smoothly.
[Damn! More than half of them are dead! And, the ones who havent died yet are rather unlikely to.]
[I had once said that youd better prepare for your funeral if you try to entrap us!] Jun Mo Xies clothes fluttered as he walked to the hilltop. His elegant face had calm cruelty written all over it.
Who couldve thought that such a frail looking youngster could possess the skills to orchestrate a dramedy of this scale?
The Supreme Commander Jun Wu Yi was in a tragic situation before the battle had started. And, he was helpless when it came to doing anything about it. And then, the situation became a comedy since the tables turned. Many people were happy with his misfortunes, and had schemed his downfall. However, these people themselves had fallen into tragic turmoil.
Jun Mo Xie was akin to unknown peak expert. He had planned this entire elaborate thing in secret. He hadnt only planned for himself, but he had also pre-empted the enemy. He hadnt overlooked anything in this entire matter.
He had Jade Xuan cultivation. But, what difference would it make if his plans could implicate Spirit Xuan experts and Sky Xuan experts? Their tragedy would never turn into comedy!
And, this kind of conduct of could truly be described as turns his palm up, and he gathers the clouds. Turns his palm down, and he turns them to rain.
Everything was under control!
How could he not appear now that he was reaping the fruits of his labor? How could the overjoyed director of the play not appear to accept the applause? How could he not enjoy it?
[One laughs wildly when they are frustrated. And, one should do it even more strongly when they are pleased.]
[Laughter must be hearty and unrestrained. And, one should sing loudly when they are pleased with themselves! Why have so many misgivings? Life is tough and short. So, enjoy it while you can. And, intoxicate oneself in songs.]
[Be calm and tranquil if you're proud of yourself. Why would you act cocky if someone talks to you? I dislike those who act like pretentious pricks. Why would anyone proud of themselves act anxious? I dislike too much strain. I'm proud of myself, and I'm awesome! Who dares to take me as a madman and laugh? Ask yourself do you have any achievements the kind this madman does? Shut your mouth if you don't! The eighteen generations of your ancestry have been sissy, and your socks had stinky holes in them! I wont even urinate in your water bottles!]
[Why should I concern myself with any of those damned matter? Hows it my business?]
This was Jun Mo Xie's philosophy.
[Sing when you're proud. And, stop when you've failed. Many worries and regrets can last for ages. Live in the moment. Worry about tomorrow when tomorrow comes.]
[Those who fail to show their skill shall break. And, those who shall break will eventually break. And, I will kill them when they break. Its important to laugh at the clouds if one wishes to run amok the lands. Its important to go about ones own means. And, its important to go fu*k it!]
