"The mighty Wushang Village Chief actually appeared in the northwest and even fought with our Righteous Alliance. This was truly too surprising. We continued to follow this clue and learned to our surprise that the famous Wushang Cavalry were under the command of a Young Marquis of the Great Tang."
As Chu Nan spoke, he removed a different drawing from his left sleeve and opened it. The crowd was immediately drawn to the image.
Upon seeing the subject of that drawing, the crowd cried out in surprise.
The drawing depicted a handsome youth of seventeen or eighteen, and if one looked carefully, the youth was identical to Wang Chong!
"How could this be?"
"So he really wasn't Young Master Qingyang!"
"The Young Marquis? He's actually a Marquis of the Imperial Court! At the young age of eighteen, he's already a Marquis!"
Expressions of shock appeared in the eyes of the surrounding crowd. Each of them had made their own guess as to Wang Chong's identity. After all, this was someone audacious enough to play around with people like Song Yuanyi and the Black Yin Ancestor.
But no one had expected that this person who paid little regard to the righteous and evil factions was actual a noble of the Great Tang!
As he heard all the cries of alarm coming from around him, Wang Chong couldn't help but sigh.
It seems like it will be difficult to end today on a good note!
Even a sage could make a mistake. He had never expected that in the end, the final and fatal leak would come not from him, but from the Wushang Village Chief, who had gone to find his master.
During the campaign at the triangular gap and the victorious return from the Battle of Talas, the Wushang Village Chief had accompanied the Wushang Cavalry back, causing him to be seen by many people and sowing the seeds for today's exposure.
"Kekeke, this ancestor doesn't care if you're some Marquis of the Imperial Court. None of those statuses have any use here. For daring to fool this ancestor, this ancestor will tear you to pieces!"
As he gave his strange and sinister laugh, the Black Yin Ancestor turned his pitch-black eyes onto Wang Chong, who was only twenty-some feet away.
Before anyone else could react, the Black Yin Ancestor lunged forward like some massive bird, shrouded in black smoke. By the time everyone realized what was going on, he was just two feet from Wang Chong.
And then the crowd once more gasped in surprise.
Moments after the Black Yin Ancestor had attacked, Song Yuanyi had made his move.
Song Youran's face paled as she reached out to grab her father, but how could someone of her cultivation level possibly catch Song Yuanyi?
"Kill him! Hurry and kill him!"
Amidst the Righteous Alliance disciples, Ji Andu excitedly clenched his fists, his eyes bursting with anticipation.
Song Yuanyi and the Black Yin Ancestor were both top-class individuals of the martial arts world. With the two of them taking action, Wang Chong was doomed. And if not for these titans already being present, Ji Andu himself would have charged out long ago.
A moment later, with a heaven-shaking explosion, a vast torrent of energy on par with the Black Yin Ancestor's surged out of Wang Chong's body.
This boundless energy swept out with unstoppable momentum, and countless martial artists were left stunned and amazed. At that moment, besides experts like the Black Yin Ancestor and Song Yuanyi, everyone else felt like an insignificant ant.
Rumble! The two waves of energy clashed, and then the Black Yin Ancestor staggered backward six or seven steps.
"This is impossible!"
The Black Yin Ancestor's eyes went round, a look of extreme shock on his face.
Meanwhile, after pushing back the Black Yin Ancestor, Wang Chong had to immediately turn and face down his second opponent with barely any time to catch his breath.
Song Yuanyi's Eternal Spring Stellar Energy was incredibly tough to deal with. Although it lacked the explosive and aggressive properties of the Universe Sundering Art, its tenacity and repulsing properties were second to none. Even the golden giant leading the men in black had suffered internal injuries from this Stellar Energy, let alone anyone else.
But a moment later, in a flash of light, the images of the moon and sun emerged, instantly radiating destructive energy.
"Great Yin Yang Art!"
The sun and moon merged together, instantly unleashing a furious storm and a vast flood of dreadful energy. Song Yuanyi's Eternal Spring Stellar Energy was obliterated or cast aside. Song Yuanyi's body swayed, but Wang Chong's face paled as he was forced back sixty-some feet. Even Wang Chong was hard-pressed to block the joint attack of the Black Yin Ancestor and Song Yuanyi.
No one had expected some eighteen-year-old, some weak youth who seemed comparable to Young Master Qingyang, to unleash some vast power in the blink of an eye and take on the consecutive strikes of the Black Yin Ancestor and Song Yuanyi, two titans of the martial arts world.
"How could this be? Why does he have such a high cultivation level?!"
Shock was written on the faces of everyone in the crowd, and no one was more shocked than Young Master Qingyang. He had believed that Wang Chong was at most at the Saint Martial realm, never imagining that someone of the same age as him would be so vastly superior to him in terms of cultivation.
He had always taken himself to be a prodigy, but he was now realizing for the first time that there was someone who had left him coughing in the dust in both martial arts understanding and cultivation.
"The Young Marquis? He's a member of the Imperial Court, but how could there be anyone in the world like this?" Young Master Qingyang muttered, his mind in turmoil.
As the crowd was reeling in shock, the Black Yin Ancestor and Song Yuanyi tensed.
"Great Yinyang Heaven Creation Art!"
Song Yuanyi stared viciously at Wang Chong, his eyes brimming with cold light.
"Evil creature! I really was right about you! You're just as bad as your master! Now that you've fallen into my hands today, don't even think about leaving alive!"
"It really is the Great Yinyang Heaven Creation Art! Little beast, you really are that old scoundrel's disciple!"
The Black Yin Ancestor was much more surprised than Song Yuanyi. His eyes displayed shock and fury, mixed together with envy and greed.
The Great Yinyang Heaven Creation Art was the number one evil art of the realm, and the Black Yin Ancestor had worked together with Song Yuanyi to deal with Demonic Emperor Zhang Wenfu precisely because he was after this evil art. Once one succeeded in cultivating this art, one would possess unfathomable strength. After all, this was the number one art in the world when it came to speed of cultivation.
Alas, the plans of men were no match for the plans of heaven. In the end, they had failed at the final step, allowing the Demonic Emperor to escape.
At this moment, the Myriad Ghost Ancestor spoke from atop the banner, his face cold and aloof. "When removing weeds, if you don't pull them out by the roots, they'll regrow with the spring wind. Zhang Wenfu has disappeared, but once we capture you, we can lure your master over! Little demon, you can only blame yourself for taking Zhang Wenfu as your master!"
His chilling eyes were locked onto Wang Chong like pointed swords.
At almost the same moment, Righteous Alliance Vice Lord Xie Guangting, standing behind Song Yuanyi and staring emotionlessly at Wang Chong, also stepped forward. Four titans of the martial arts world had joined together to surround Wang Chong, each one of them with killing intent in their eyes.
The Great Yinyang Heaven Creation Art had once stirred up a storm of blood and gore, and everyone had only managed with great difficulty to remove that evil. But after only a couple of years, the Demonic Emperor's lineage had reemerged and appeared before them.
Song Yuanyi, Xie Guangting, the Myriad Ghost Ancestor, and the Black Yin Ancestor had all participated in that assault. The four of them could not tolerate yet another individual of the Demonic Emperor's lineage.
How could this be!? The Great Yin Yang Art! It's really the Great Yin Yang Art! Master really did take on another disciple, and he even passed on the Great Yin Yang Art to him!
Standing in the back of the crowd, Ji Andu had an ashen complexion, his face savagely twisted. When Wang Chong's body erupted with the Great Yinyang Heaven Creation Art, Ji Andu had felt a fierce reaction. Moreover, he sensed that Wang Chong was using that most mature and most formidable version of the Great Yin Yang Art.
Ji Andu couldn't remember the last time he had felt that familiar and dreadful energy. His heart was filled with fear, hatred, and irrepressible envy.
Old bastard, I served you for so many years, but you only passed onto me the Little Yinyang Art, never teaching me the second half. You forced me to forge my own path, joining with outsiders to remove you. I didn't think that not only would you not die, you even took on another disciple, and you even taught him the Great Yin Yang Art. Damn you! Damn you! You old bastard, I'll tear you into ten thousand pieces!
Intense envy had twisted Ji Andu's pale face beyond recognition.
If looks could kill, Wang Chong would have died countless times by now.
As Ji Andu's heart burned with loathing, Wang Chong and the four titans of righteous and evil had become the undisputed center of attention.
The atmosphere was tense, a battle imminent.
Someone in the crowd shouted, "The Great Yin Yang Evil Art! It's the Great Yin Yang Evil Art! Everyone, get away! Run!"
Like a river of lava flowing into a calm lake, the unaffiliated martial artists at the very front fled in panic, followed by those in the second row, and then the hundreds of martial artists who had gathered to watch the spectacle took to their heels, not daring to be even half a step slow.
Some people even fell over in their haste to flee.
It was like this was not some eighteen-year-old youth, but the most terrifying beast in the world going on a rampage!
The Great Yinyang Heaven Creation Art!
This was the most infamous art in the martial arts world, an evil art that had slain countless martial artists. Its reputation had been forged from the blood and bones of those slain. When a new cultivator of the Great Yinyang Heaven Creation Art emerged, everyone knew that countless martial artists had been used as nutrients for their growth.
