The Fiery Sun Path Disciples could get to comprehend the Sky Book’s fifth volume? This query arose in Luo Yunyang’s heart when he heard what the golden-robed man said.
Badebu wasn’t by his side, so there wasn’t anyone there to explain this to Luo Yunyang.
However, as Luo Yunyang was puzzled, the Blood Space Ruler suddenly grinned. “Brother Pure Sun, are you sure you want to have this bet?”
“Sure I do!” the golden-robed old man replied.
Suddenly, a voice said in Luo Yunyang’s ears, “Yunyang, although each path possesses one of the Sky Book’s nine volumes, the founders of the various paths have set down a rule. The young disciples of each path, especially those who are at the Star-Grade Realm, can refer to the Sky Book that each path holds.”
“However, this access to the Sky Book comes with certain conditions. The person in question has to be an outstanding, talented genius that surpasses all the other talented individuals,” said a tall, large man. Luo Yunyang had viewed the information on the top 15, so he knew that this person was Blood Disciple Wuka, who ranked 10th!
“The various paths slowly came up with a rule. If any path feels that their youngest generation is capable of demonstrating overwhelming superiority, they can request to consult the Sky Books of the other eight paths.”
Wuka hesitated before adding, “Usually, the path that issues this request has to put forth five elite disciples that will participate in a match with the five disciples put forward by the other paths.”
Luo Yunyang had never imagined that there would actually be such a thing. It looked like the Fiery Sun Path was very confident about getting the opportunity to refer to the other volumes of the Sky Book.
“Best out of five?” Luo Yunyang asked Wuka quietly.
“No, it’s four victories out of five!” Wuka said. “If the challenging team only obtains three victories, it is still considered a loss!”
“If the challenging team loses, it will have to allow the disciples that were challenged to comprehend the Sky Book they possess for an entire month!”
Four victories out of five? This sort of challenge was really difficult. Plus, the cost of losing was also tremendous.
The challenger’s intention was to be able to peruse the Sky Book their opponent controlled. However, the moment they lost, their opponents would get to study the Sky Book in their hands for a month.
“Have there been a lot of challenges like this in the past?” Luo Yunyang glanced at Wuka as he spoke in a low voice.
Wuka, who seemed a little listless, eventually said hoarsely, “In the past, it was really rare. It happened maybe once in 10,000 years. However, we encounter this quite a lot nowadays.”
Quite a lot? Luo Yunyang found these words a little peculiar.
However, when he studied Wuka’s expression, he immediately understood. Being challenged a lot meant that the new generation of Bloody Massacre Path was getting weaker.
Meanwhile, the successful challenges of the other paths also increased.
Suddenly, Luo Yunyang noticed a faint flicker of rage on the Blood Space Ruler’s face. “Alright, let me choose the participants for this match.”
“Yun Dongyang, Yun Dongyang, Tie Wudi, Wen Jingxuan, Lu Bowen!”
The people whose names had been called by the Blood Space Ruler all stood up slowly, cupped their hands and bowed in the Blood Space Ruler’s direction.
Luo Yunyang felt slightly disappointed deep down when he didn’t hear his name get called out.
Deep down he was really pissed at that Luochuan fellow. He just wanted to fight with him in a match.
Luo Yunyang, who had already sensed his own strength during the match with the Eldest Senior Brother, was rather confident in himself.
However, the Blood Space Ruler hadn’t picked him!
Although he felt regretful inside, Luo Yunyang couldn’t say that the Blood Space Ruler’s choice was wrong.
After all, he hadn’t yet shown his true ability during the Grand Showdown.
“He he… Your name is Luo Yunyang, right? I thought you would be impressive. I didn’t expect that you wouldn’t even make the top five. How disgraceful!” Luochuan stared provocatively at Luo Yunyang with a look of disdain.
As Luo Yunyang studied Luochuan, his mind went to work. A moment later, he chuckled. “Based on the way you look, you probably rank fifth among the Fiery Sun Path elites.”
Luochuan snorted haughtily but didn’t say anything else.
Luo Yunyang gave laughed casually. “I was wondering something. How old are you?”
Luochuan stared at the snickering Luo Yunyang as he said haughtily, “I might not be that young. I’m already past 100 years old.”
Judging by the geniuses that existed in the entire galaxy, being able to reach Luochuan’s level at his age was not too bad.
His cultivation base was also decent. Some whose cultivation bases would start out at the Planet-Grade would find it difficult to cross over.
Achieving this by Luochuan’s age was indeed impressive. Besides, this was something that Luochuan was immensely proud of.
“What? 100? That won’t do. A soft-shelled turtle at 10 is still a turtle at 100. You have lived for a century, so you could already be considered a turtle. However, your robust physique could make a 30-year-old young fellow like me blush with shame!”
As Luo Yunyang spoke with a deadpan expression, Luochuan’s face turned red. When he saw Luo Yunyang’s innocent-looking face, Luochuan really felt like giving this fellow a beating.
Even though Luochuan had been proclaimed by many people a young genius, he had never imagined that this person would actually call him a robust turtle! Wasn’t this basically a different kind of insult?
However, Luo Yunyang also had a right to be prideful. This kid was only in his thirties after all.
“Age doesn’t matter among trash. If I had been in the Bloody Massacre Path, I would probably have become the strongest powerhouse among the Star-Grade entities 50 years ago.”
Luochuan was so furious that he didn’t care. He just mouthed off.
This statement immediately earned him furious glares from the Blood Space Ruler and every other Bloody Massacre Path powerhouse present.
Luochuan quickly realized that following his impulse was foolish. This gaffe would definitely ignite everyone’s wrath. Lowering his head and apologizing at such a helpless time was also out of the question. After all, this concerned the Fiery Sun Path’s dignity.
The Blood Space Ruler stared icily at Luochuan. If the Pure Sun Ruler had not been standing beside him, perhaps he would have already slapped Luochuan right into the ground.
“Brother Pure Sun, do you share this young man’s opinion?” the Blood Space Ruler asked frostily as he glanced at the Pure Sun Ruler.
The golden-robed Pure Sun Ruler glanced quickly at Luochuan before chuckling. “This young man is too arrogant. Please do not mind him, Brother Blood Space. However, he doesn’t seem to be wrong. Don’t tell me that you still don’t know about the Bloody Massacre Path’s youngest generation?”
BOOM! A majestic aura rushed forth from the Blood Ruler’s body, causing streaks of Origin Source Law to take shape in the sky all around.
Even Luo Yunyang found it difficult to breathe amid this suppressing aura.
A Galaxy-Grade ruler was really too frightening.
Some weaker Bloody Massacre Path Blood Disciples situated in the Hall of Heroes fell to the ground when pressured by this wave of power.
Meanwhile, the five powerhouses of the Fiery Sun Path braced against it quietly with an unyielding look on their faces.
The young man standing up front seemed particularly determined. A large scarlet sun appeared above his head, shielding the area all around him like a fortress. It seemed like he wasn’t even affected by the Blood Space Ruler’s crushing might.
This display of power was extremely strong!
Even the Bloody Massacre Path’s strongest member, Yang Shang, didn’t seem to match up to him right now!
The Blood Space Ruler sensed the reactions of the Blood Disciples bellow the Hall of Heroes. Although he was still burning with rage, he couldn’t allow the disciples beneath him to be humiliated any further.
Therefore, he quickly retracted his own aura.
The Pure Sun Ruler laughed heartily. “Today is your Hero Meeting, Brother Blood Space. It really was wrong of us to come and disturb it. The combatants have already been decided, so we will settle this at the Blood Spirit Sky’s Top Blood Platform tomorrow. How does that sound?”
Although the Pure Sun Ruler had adopted a courteous, polite stance and said that they were creating a disturbance, his face was clearly telling a different story.
The Blood Space Ruler snorted. “We shall meet tomorrow then!”
A Blood Spirit Sky attendant led the Pure Sun Ruler, Luochuan and the other four people over to the Top Blood District’s house reserved for special guests. As Luochuan walked by Luo Yunyang, he sneered. “I hope you can come and watch the match tomorrow!”
Although Luo Yunyang was really pissed with Luochuan, he really didn’t have any means of dealing with him at this point in time. All he could do was watch that guy leave haughtily.
After the Pure Sun Ruler’s group left, the Blood Space Ruler glared bitterly at Luo Yunyang, making him feel a little puzzled.
He wondered whether that old man had slept on the wrong side of the bed. He hadn’t done anything. Why was he staring at him?
“Tomorrow will determine the reputation of the Bloody Massacre Path. You five must at least come out victorious in two matches!” Although the Blood Space Ruler’s voice was overcast, there was a strong desire in it. “If you aren’t even able to win two matches, then don’t blame me for throwing you into the Blood Fiend Purgatory!”
“We will definitely be able to win two matches!” Yang Shang was the first to clench his fist and pledge this.
A faint gratified smile formed on the Blood Space Ruler’s face as he watched the steel-like Yang Shang. Then, he glanced at the Blood Disciples below and said. “Yang Shang and the other four people who will be participating in the match have to stay behind. The rest of you can return first. The Grand Showdown will commence after this match is over!”
“We will do as you bid!” Luo Yunyang and the others cupped their fists in the Blood Space Ruler’s direction before leaving. Right now, they all felt the same burning fire in their hearts.
After all, who wouldn’t be furious over this sort of humiliation? A visitor had shown disdain on their turf!
“Don’t lose heart, Brother Yunyang. After all, you only entered the Blood Spirit Sky 10 years ago. Perhaps you will get your chance next time this sort of challenge occurs again!” Wuka consoled Luo Yunyang as they left together.
Luo Yunyang smiled at the solemn-looking Wuka. “I could smack Luochuan to the ground right now.”
Wuka glanced at Luo Yunyang and laughed heartily. “I also wish to smack Luochuan to the ground.”
Although Wuka found Luo Yunyang’s courage laudable, in his heart, he didn’t believe that Luo Yunyang had this sort of ability.
