Chapter 410 – Spare Your Pathetic Life
Nangong Wentian’s formidable combat strength made everyone from the main Nangong family feel happy and excited. Although the fight still wasn’t over, judging from the current situation, Nangong Wenyen was no longer in a good condition, and as he wasn’t able to defend himself from Nangong Wentian’s attack even when he was at top shape, it would be much harder now that he was injured.
“Nangong Wenyen, didn’t you say you’ve been superior to me in all aspects since we were small? What about now?”
Nangong Wentian spoke with the same tone Nangong Wenyen used to speak to him just now. At the same time, there was a mocking expression on his face.
“Hmph! Do you really think you’ve won? This is a death match, and you have to kill me in order to win! You really think you can defeat me just from being in an advantageous position? You’re too naïve!”
Nangong Wenyen coldly harrumphed. With a flip of his palm, he retrieved a golden pill and swallowed it. After that, his energy rose up to his peak, and within the blink of an eye, he had returned to his top shape.
“Hmph! If I can defeat you once, I can do it a second time as well!”
Nangong Wentian coldly harrumphed, then immediately struck out with his fist. The punch created tremendous energy waves that carried the mightiness of a Barbarian Elephant. A golden beam approached Nangong Wenyen’s face in the blink of an eye.
Nangong Wenyen’s black hair was fluttering in the strong wind. His arm flashed, and a silver spear made from unknown materials suddenly appeared. It was a terrifying weapon; its body was fully covered with mystical patterns, and it had a razor sharp tip that looked to have been made from black ice. It was constantly emitting a cold s.h.i.+ne, causing those who looked at it to feel slightly afraid.
A buzzing sound could be heard from this silver spear. The air surrounding the spear was trembling violently, and huge energy ripples could be seen around it. At the same time, Nangong Wenyen launched his attack. With the pike in his hand, he charged forward with incredible speed, causing the powerful spear to collide with the energy beam unleashed by Nangong Wentian.
Nangong Wenyen was back at top shape, allowing him to once more possess formidable combat strength. That, combined with the help of the terrifying spear in his hand, his combat strength was higher than when the fight started, it had gone up to an amazing level. With just a single strike, he shattered Nangong Wentian’s attack. After destroying Nangong Wentian’s attack, the silver spear didn’t slow down, it continued piercing toward Nangong Wentian like a poisonous snake.
Although Nangong Wenyen was fast, Nangong Wentian was even faster. After mastering the essence of the Ten Thousand Everlasting Elephants skill, he had experienced a transformation from his very roots. Following a bright blink of light, the Myriad Star Ruler instantly appeared in his hand. This weapon was something he had gotten when he found the Ten Thousand Everlasting Elephants skill, and he had later forged it into his Natal Weapon.
Not only was this gigantic ruler a powerful weapon, it could also absorb energy from the stars. Nangong Wentian would nearly every night use the energy of the stars to temper his Combat Weapon, as well as his strength, providing himself with a great benefit.
Nangong Wentian raised the gigantic ruler high up into the air and forcefully swung it forward, unleas.h.i.+ng a huge energy beam that looked like a gigantic blue dragon made entirely from stars. In the blink of an eye, it had absorbed all the natural Yuan energy in the surrounding area.
The energy beam unleashed by the Myriad Star Ruler instantly collided with the silver spear, producing a loud explosive sound that rang out in everyone’s mind. The energy ripples produced by the collision turned into a gigantic, deadly energy tornado. If anyone were careless enough to get pulled into this tornado; that person would immediately be torn apart and die miserably.
Tap, tap, tap!
The collision caused Nangong Wenyen to take a few steps back before he could finally stabilize his body. His aura was shaking, and his arms were trembling.
“Impossible, he just broke through to the Combat Soul realm, why does he have such powerful combat strength, even stronger than mine?!”
Nangong Wenyen was terrified this time. In his mind, he had always looked down on Nangong Wentian, and had never taken this cousin of his seriously. He was more than 100 percent confident that he would defeat Nangong Wentian in this duel. However, he had now been defeated by his cousin twice; this was a reality he could never accept.
“Nangong Wenyen, take this attack next!”
Nangong Wentian’s hair was violently fluttering in the strong wind, and his appearance seemed very imposing, as if he had turned into an ancient barbaric beast from the ancient era. He was portraying a wild image from all over. In an instant, the Myriad Star Ruler in his hand transformed into a gigantic ruler dozens of meters long. Then, he simply swung it through the sky toward Nangong Wenyen’s head.
“I refuse to believe that you can defeat me!”
Nangong Wenyen furiously gnashed his teeth, then gripped his silver spear tightly and dashed forward, heading toward the gigantic ruler that was approaching him.
Seeing this, Jiang Chen who stood in the crowd couldn’t help but shake his head. At the same time, a faint smile appeared on his face. Nangong Wenyen’s mind had been disturbed by the two losses; which affected his combat strength. Therefore, there was no way he could prevail over Nangong Wentian who had such great momentum right now. The result of this duel was now obvious; Nangong Wenyen would soon taste defeat.
The Myriad Star Ruler came rus.h.i.+ng down from the sky with tremendous force. The silver spear had no way of fighting against it, so once again, Nangong Wenyen was. .h.i.t and forced to cough out a mouthful of blood. The silver spear was nearly knocked out from his grip, and he was instantly thrown onto the ground.
Nangong Wentian started laughing out loudly. However, he didn’t stop attacking. His attacks rained down on Nangong Wenyen like a raging storm.
Nangong Wenyen was finally unable to defend himself from the final strike. The silver spear in his hand was knocked out and taken away by Nangong Wentian. His body was now filled with wounds, and blood was pouring out of these wounds nonstop.
Nangong Yunzheng cried out in shock. He couldn’t believe his own eyes; this was a scene that wouldn’t appear even in his wildest dreams! Or put it this way, he had expected this result, but the characters had changed. He expected Nangong Wentian to be the one who got beaten, not his son.
“How can this be possible, young master Wenyen was defeated?”
All the guest warriors from Nangong Yunzheng’s side were also shocked by the outcome. This differed completely from their original plan.
“Haha, good, perfect!”
Nangong Yunfan burst into laughter. Right at this moment, only those few positive words were capable of describing how happy he was. Nangong Wentian had won the first match! Not only did that mean they had a chance of winning today’s compet.i.tion, it also meant that his strong was the strongest of the Nangong family’s younger generation; the best candidate for the young master position.
“Young master is really formidable; he actually possess such incredible combat strength even though he just broke through to the Combat Soul realm! If I didn’t witness this with my own eyes; I wouldn’t have believed it!”
“Do you guys see that? This is what I call a true peerless genius! An amazing existence like our young master cannot be judged using ordinary logic! Even though he just broke through to the Combat Soul realm, he is not someone Nangong Wenyen can compare with!”
“Just keep watching, this is a deathmatch! I wonder, will Nangong Wenyen be killed or not? Nangong Wenyen is Nangong Yunzheng’s only son, and if he dies, perhaps Nangong Yunzheng will immediately go crazy.”
The crowd became restless. No one had expected this outcome; n.o.body had thought that Nangong Wentian would win this match. They even though he was a coward as he was a bit late to the duel. However, he had ended up winning the match, and Nangong Wenyen whom almost everyone thought would win was now lying on the ground like a dead dog.
Nangong Wentian landed back onto the fighting stage. With one hand holding the gigantic ruler and the other hand holding the silver spear, he walked step by step toward Nangong Wenyen. Finally, he pressed the razor sharp tip of the silver spear against Nangong Wenyen’s forehead.
Right at this moment, everyone gasped as they looked at what was about to happen. All expressions changed as Nangong Wentian placed the tip of the silver spear on Nangong Wenyen’s forehead. Today’s match was a deathmatch, and if Nangong Wentian really killed Nangong Wenyen, it wouldn’t be considered breaking the rules.
Nangong Yunzheng suddenly shouted out. His body then flashed toward the fighting stage. Although he was fast, the family chief Nangong Yunfan had moved as well, and blocked Nangong Yunzheng’s path.
“Elder brother, what are you trying to do?”
A sneer emerged onto Nangong Yunfan’s face.
“Yunfan, Wenyen has lost this match, he doesn’t have to die!”
Nangong Yunzheng loudly said.
“This is a deathmatch! You know the rules; even I am unable to interfere with what is happening on the fighting stage! Whether or not Nangong Wenyen dies, it’s all up to Wentian, and no one can stop him; including you!”
Nangong Yunfan blocked Nangong Yunzheng’s path with his tall and muscular body. It was clearly impossible for Nangong Yunzheng to get over there and save his son.
Furthermore, he had personally agreed to this rule. If he appeared on the fighting stage now, it would be no different from breaking his own rules, and how could a man like that obtain the trust of his people? If he truly became the family chief in the future, no one would have faith in him.
Nangong Yunzheng clenched his fist so tightly that cracking sounds could be heard. However, there was nothing he could do except stare angrily at the fighting stage.
Right at this moment, everyone were looking at the fighting stage, focusing on the silver spear pressing against Nangong Wenyen’s forehead. Right now, Nangong Wenyen’s life was in Nangong Wentian’s hands, and he was at the brink of death.
“No, I refuse to give in!”
Nangong Wenyen struggled to climb up from the ground. However, he was like an arrow at the end of its flight, and he didn’t even have the strength to stand up. Therefore, he was now like a limb waiting to be slaughtered by Nangong Wentian.
“Nangong Wenyen, although this is a deathmatch, and you deserve death for what you and your father have done, you are after all part of the Nangong family. I, Nangong Wentian will never kill those of my own blood! Therefore, I will spare your pathetic life today! In the future, stay out of my sight. Now, get the h.e.l.l outta here!”
After Nangong Wentian finished speaking, he simply delivered a powerful kick to Nangong Wenyen, throwing him off the fighting stage and causing him to spit out another mouthful of blood. Half of this blood came out because of the powerful kick, while the other half came out because of his anger. This was an insult, an unbearable insult! From now on, he could never hold his head up high again!
Nangong Yunzheng ran forward and caught Nangong Wenyen in his arms, then immediately gave him a pill. Although his son had been defeated, his life was at least safe now.
Above the fighting stage, Nangong Wentian stored the Myriad Star Ruler and the silver spear in his storage ring, then he returned to the main Nangong family group. Of course, he wasn’t going to return the silver spear to Nangong Wenyen. He didn’t kill this cousin, therefore, this silver spear should be his reward for defeating him.
“Young man, you’ve done a good job! I’m proud of you!”
Nangong Yunfan forcefully patted his son’s shoulder, his face covered in pride. Not only was he praising Nangong Wentian for having defeated Nangong Wenyen with his formidable strength, he was also feeling proud about Nangong Wentian’s final decision. Nangong Wenyen was after all a part of the Nangong family, and if Nangong Wentian really killed him in front of everybody, it would be nothing but a huge negative impact to Nangong Wentian’s image.
