Chapter 931: No need for Reason
Upon hearing Luo Huo’er’s shout, Yi Yun rubbed his forehead. Luo Huo’er always had an explosive streak and she did everything on a whim. She was after all a princess, while the two members of the Eternal Eventide Sea probably enjoyed a status beneath Luo Mo’s. Even Ye Yi, who enjoyed a slightly higher status than his two companions, was obviously inferior to Luo Huo’er.
Their conversation could have been ignored actually. As a princess, there was no need for Luo Huo’er to be bothered about them. Yi Yun did not expect Luo Huo’er to directly hurl invectives at the members of the Eternal Eventide Sea, annoying them as a result.
They did not know Luo Huo’er’s identity as well. The only thing to blame would be on Luo Huo’er because she did not like having a royal entourage. Typically, princes and princesses would have a grand procession, with plebeians shooed aside. They were not like Luo Huo’er, who would enter a crowd after changing into any random set of clothes. Why the hell would anyone know who she was?
“Which witless lass is this, for her to be squawking so much? Could it be that the both of you are from the Luo clan?”
The speaking man gave a look of disdain. As he spoke, he continued drinking his tea.
The other young man took a glance at Yi Yun and Luo Huo’er’s clothes. With a judgment in mind, he guffawed, “Hahaha! They really are from the Luo clan. Why? Did my words hit a soft spot? From what I know, the Luo clan only has a Princess Purple Spirit that’s fairly alright. And beneath her, there’s some Yun guy. They only have two people. They are nothing impressive when compared to our Eternal Eventide clan.”
Some Yun guy?
When Yi Yun heard this, he stroked his chin with a strange look. Was his existence that poor?
He turned his head and saw Luo Huo’er nearly bursting out in laughter when she heard them. She looked like she was enjoying the pleasure derived from his misfortune.
Yi Yun shook his head helplessly. The large clans were limited in their understanding of each other’s talents. The Eternal Eventide clan probably heard of Yi Yun and Luo Huo’er only when they arrived in the Luo clan.
A smile harboring evil designs hung on Luo Huo’er’s face. She produced a conjuration using her fingers and flicked them.
Seeing Luo Huo’er no longer speaking, the two disciples of the Eternal Eventide Sea chuckled and continued drinking their tea.
However, they never expected that as they drank their tea…
The Eternal Eventide Sea disciples suddenly leaped up three feet high, as though they had drunk poison. Their bodies convulsed violently as they held their hands to their neck. Their faces flushed red as their eyes nearly popped out.
They opened their mouths in an attempt to spit the tea out, but the tea had long vanished. What they spat out were flames.
“Hu! Hu! Hu!”
The flames burned at an extremely high temperature. Be it the tea table or the ground, a hole burned through them wherever the flames touched!
“Hot! Hot!” An Eternal Eventide Sea disciple shouted in a muffled voice. “My tongue! Tongue!”
“Tongue?” Luo Huo’er feigned a look of surprise. “Tsk tsk tsk, oh my. Your tongue seems well-done… Barbecue pig’s tongue. What you said earlier shows how witty your tongue is. Why are you so hard on yourself to go so far as to burn your own tongue?”
Luo Huo’er was one who never spared her words to infuriate others to the grave. Yi Yun watched secretly by the side in horror. This demonic lass was really not to be trifled with. The conjuration Luo Huo’er had produced had flown into the two Eternal Eventide Sea disciples’ tea cup in an undetectable manner. As a result, they had drunk the fire-elemental conjuration.
Just the two conjurations had resulted in such terrifying damage. Luo Huo’er’s insights into fire-elemental laws had truly reached the crest of perfection.
Yi Yun estimated that the two poor souls would probably lose their tongues. A devilish girl like Luo Huo’er had not held back. The flames were not ordinary either. Yi Yun could discern very clearly through the Purple Crystal’s vision that the flames were like tarsal maggots. The flames had pervasive energies, so the duo’s protective Yuan Qi was completely insufficient to resist her conjurations.
Not only were their tongues damaged, even their oral cavities were burnt badly. Although it could be restored with heavenly treasures, it would result in them not being to eat or speak for several months. Furthermore, the cost of the heavenly treasures was not a small sum.
“Witch, I’ll…I’ll kill you!”
The two Eternal Eventide Sea disciples endured the pain as they shouted. Luo Huo’er gave a disdainful scoff. She nonchalantly picked up a pair of chopsticks on the table and flicked them.
The two chopsticks flew straight at the two Eternal Eventide Sea disciples like arrows!
Seeing the chopsticks flying at them, the Yuan Qi of the two Eternal Eventide Sea disciples burst as they punched out while enduring their pain!
Energy blasted outwards like a volcanic eruption. Even divine wood grown for a hundred thousand years would be shattered into wood chips by the two punches, much less a pair of ordinary wooden chopsticks!
However, the pair of chopsticks was extraordinary in Luo Huo’er’s hands. At the instant she threw out the pair of chopsticks, she had embedded laws into them. Now, the pair of chopsticks were flickering with fire-elemental runes on the surface as they exuded a mysterious air to them.
The highly-compressed fire-elemental energies caused the pair of chopsticks to ignite. Like two meteors, they streaked towards the two Eternal Eventide Sea disciples!
With the sounds of two explosive blasts, the punch blast from the duo was penetrated! Immediately following that, fire surged at their faces without any resistance.
The inferno blast apart, sending the duo flying back. Their hair was burnt, and radiated in all directions. Their faces were completely black from the ashes.
Many people had witnessed the battle at the makeshift tea hut. They had seen the Eternal Eventide Sea disciples make the provocation before the red-dressed girl attacked them. In a few short seconds, she had beaten them so badly that even their parents would not be able to identify them.
Who was this red-dressed girl?
At this moment, the young man, whose neck hung an accessory that resembled a black pair of wings, stood up. He shattered his tea cup by tapping on it. The tea did not spill but was wrapped in Yuan Qi, as the concoction spun in mid air.
The young man tapped gently once again as the tea split into two clear streams and entered the two Eternal Eventide Sea disciples’ mouths.
The fire was extinguished by the tea, but their tongues were already burnt to a crisp.
They groaned in pain on the ground while Luo Huo’er looked at the young man. She had heard the two disciples addressing him as Senior Brother Ye Yi.
Although Ye Yi was relatively strong, he was clearly not the strongest person in the Eternal Eventide clan. Luo Huo’er gave Ye Yi a lazy glance and said, “Using a bit of water to extinguish my fire? Are you trying to flaunt your attainment in water-elemental laws?” Luo Huo’er said in derision.
Ye Yi said coldly, “For your fire-elemental laws to attain such a standard, you must be illustrious in the Luo clan, but… the two of them had only offended you with words, aren’t you going too far by dealing such harm to them?”
“You can consider me rather benevolent. I helped them burn their tongues because their wagging tongues were too long. In many places and many occasions, uttering the wrong words can result in death!” Luo Huo’er said nonchalantly, with a faint dominance in her tone. Even Ye Yi was overshadowed by her dominance.
“In a warrior’s world, it is nothing rare for a misspoken sentence to result in death. Many people are killed even without saying a word. There is no need for reason, and the reason is simply because… you are not stronger than the person killing you.”
While saying this, Luo Huo’er stood up as she played with the pair of chopsticks in her hand…
