The atmosphere of mutual hostility dissipated after Luo Yunyang put away his spear. The majority of spectators that hadn't been able to retreat far enough let out a collective sigh of relief.
This matter could be considered settled now!
A painful groan was suddenly heard, making most people remember one of the protagonists of this incident.
Nie Xin, the young master of the Nie Family, was currently whimpering on the ground like a dog with a broken tail.
"You must help me take revenge, Uncle. He he did this intentionally. He attacked me intentionally!" Nie Xin looked at the Tiger King emotionally.
The Tiger King's face had darkened when Luo Yunyang had spoken, yet when he heard Nie Xin's cry for help, his face flushed with fury. "This matter has been settled!" he bellowed at Luo Yunyang. "What you are doing to Nie Xin is basically going against the entire..."
Lu Qubing coughed lightly, as if giving the Tiger King a warning. The Sky High Tiger King did not continue his tirade, but everyone could guess what he had been about to say.
"I'm afraid we will need a justification about this matter, Brother Qubing."
"This matter? What matter?" Luo Yunyang said indifferently, staring all around him. "Did something happen in the 13 Eastern Cities while I was away? If something did, please let me know."
The Tiger King's temper flared. He knew what Luo Yunyang was talking about. Just as he started to seethe with anger, someone held him back.
Although he remained silent, this didn't mean that Nie Xin would as well. Nie Xin pointed at Luo Yunyang and said, "The people at the top have already made things clear about the leaked secret prescription! Targeting me like this only means that you are"
"Leaked secret prescription? What leaked secret prescription? Did this happen while I was away?" Luo Yunyang turned his gaze to Teacher Xie before he said, "Is this true, Teacher Xie? How could you not tell me that such a thing happened?"
Teacher Xie was no ordinary man. As soon as he made eye contact with Luo Yunyang, the two of them came to a silent understanding.
Luo Yunyang wasn't acting dumb. He was outright lying without even batting an eyelid.
"Why did you do this to me if you had no idea about this?" Nie Xin wailed bitterly.
Just a while back, he had been able to lift 500 kilos, yet now he was practically a cripple.
This feeling of uselessness made him feel extremely uncomfortable.
Luo Yunyang was to blame. Nie Xin really wished that he could snap Luo Yunyang's tendons, flay his skin and feed his bones to the dogs.
"I only did this to you because you cursed at me!" Luo Yunyang waved his hands around. "Don't go looking for witnesses. Even if you didn't scold me verbally, you did in your mind!"
Luo Yunyang gestured with his hands. "Don't forget that I am a telekinesis master. I am really adept at matters of the mind."
When the people around them heard Luo Yunyang and Nie Xin's exchange, they nearly burst out laughing. Luo Yunyang was basically saying that his attack was justifiable because Nie Xin had cursed him mentally.
No one knew whether to laugh or cry when they heard this! This reasoning was so strong that it left everyone speechless.
Nie Xin started coughing so violently that he nearly coughed his lungs out.
You must have thicker skin than a city wall! How can you not feel ashamed? How can you distort the truth like this? You utterly shameless
The Tiger King had a similar ugly expression on his face. He stared at the smug Luo Yunyang before glancing at Nie Xin, who had already been helped up. Nie Xin moved as if he didn't have any bones left in his body. The Tiger King felt an immense rage flood his heart.
"Alright, alright, alright!"
He couldn't say anything else. If a normal person had beaten Nie Xin to a pulp, it would have been an amazing feat. However, Luo Yunyang was different.
Although no one had admitted that Luo Yunyang was a martial grandmaster, the Tiger King and everyone else already recognized him as one.
Plus, Luo Yunyang was a martial grandmaster that had recently brought great glory to the 13 Eastern Cities, so it seemed like a huge, resplendent halo had already been placed on his head.
As long as he didn't do anything extreme, no one would be able to do anything to him.
However, even if he did do something extreme, the Da Alliance would most likely act like nothing had happened.
Nie Xin's beating would probably be considered a trivial matter. Although the Nie Family was rather prominent, no one would care about Nie Xin's dignity.
Luo Yunyang felt a wave of delight as he watched the fuming Nie Xin.
"This was just a small fight between kids. This matter is settled!" Lu Qubing said insipidly. "When this Nie kid gets better, tell Old Nie to discipline his child properly. One has to follow the necessary etiquette when dealing with a martial grandmaster."
The Tiger King felt so sad that he wanted to cry. However, when he glanced at a few of his comrades who were standing by his side, he decided to remain silent.
Although he didn't like suppressing his anger, lowering one's head required courage, while raising one's head required strength. Lu Qubing wasn't someone he could afford to offend. Plus, Luo Yunyang's actions hadn't been that extreme.
"Let's go then!" At Lu Qubing's final words, the murky clouds in the sky seemed to disappear instantly. However, Nie Xie, who was being helped out of the hall, suddenly fainted and collapsed on the ground.
Xiong Ben, who was standing beside Luo Yunyang, teared up. He was extremely moved, yet he didn't know exactly what to say to express his feelings.
Meanwhile, Liu Xiaoyu was already crying uncontrollably.
"Come on, let's have a few drinks!" Lu Qubing gestured at the man who had come along with him before extending the invitation to Luo Yunyang.
Luo Yunyang didn't decline the invitation. He just smiled and followed Lu Qubing as he strode outside.
"Are you aware that the Nie Family will be your mortal enemy from now on?" A silver bottle of wine had mysteriously appeared in Lu Qubing's hand as he spoke to Luo Yunyang. The man took a big gulp.
Luo Yunyang glanced at the serious man before nodding his head slowly.
"Even if I hadn't done this, they still wouldn't have treated me as a friend."
Another bottle of wine appeared magically in Lu Qubing's hand. As he tossed it to Luo Yunyang, he said softly, "I thought that you would kill Nie Xin as soon as you arrived. Well done! Your progress has exceeded my expectations."
"I wanted to slaughter Nie Xin, but I hesitated the moment I was about to do it." As he glanced at Lu Qubing's slim build, Luo Yunyang felt an inexplicable sense of trust.
Then, he told him everything that he had originally wanted to keep buried in his heart.
