Chapter 39: Do You Dare To Accept My Challenge
Translator: Dragon Boat Translation Editor: Dragon Boat Translation
Bai He frowned and said in a cold voice, “The four great academies are about to lose all their face because of you.”
Luo Youlin did not dare to retort, but he placed the blame on Lin Bai. If it were not for him, he would not have fallen to such a state. He was afraid that his reputation as a body cultivator student would be at the bottom of the four great academies.
“Boss, you really can’t blame us for this. It’s just that that little brat is too strange. He’s clearly at Xiantian level one, yet he can challenge those of a higher level. Also, his pet beast is also very abnormal.”
After hearing Luo Youlin describe the scene of his battle with Lin Bai, Bai He, who was originally indifferent, suddenly became more interested. “Hearing what you said, he should be very strong.”
Luo Youlin immediately showed a fawning smile. “No matter how strong he is, he’s not as strong as you, boss. Hahahaha.”
Knowing that he was just flattering him, Bai He only raised his eyebrows. “In that case, I’ll go and meet him.”
Luo Youlin was overjoyed and quickly led the way. When they reached the place where they had previously challenged Lin Bai, they found that there was no trace of him.
“This is where we fought before.”
The lingering power had not completely dissipated. The fallen trees and the messy ground all told him that they had experienced a great battle here. Judging from the traces left on the battlefield, this Lin Bai was indeed quite capable.
Bai He formed a hand seal and muttered to himself. A cold light flashed in front of them and guided them. That was the northwest direction. “He shouldn’t have gone too far.”
The group quickly chased after him. The strange thing was that they didn’t see any demonic beasts along the way. However, their focus was on Lin Bai, so no one bothered about him.
Not long after, a figure appeared in front of them. Bai He’s gaze was burning, and Lin Bai seemed to have noticed it as well. He turned around, and their gazes met in mid-air.
A deep and unfathomable lake was flickering with a faint light, and a stream of snow that didn’t melt all year round. The cold air assaulted their faces, giving them the feeling that they had met their match.
“You are Lin Bai?”
Bai He sized up the man in front of him, and a faint dark light burst out from his eyes, landing on Lin Bai’s body.
Then, he was a little surprised. He actually could not tell the depth of Lin Bai’s cultivation. Even the spiritual sense he released disappeared without a trace.
Lin Bai’s expression changed. He sensed the cold air surrounding his body. His body trembled slightly, and the spiritual power instantly dissipated in the air.
In just an instant, the two of them had gone back and forth, and in everyone’s eyes, the two of them were still looking at each other.
Lin Bai looked at Luo Youlin and the others, as well as the powerful man in front of him. He immediately understood that the person who came was not friendly, and he said with an indifferent expression, “I am.”
Initially, Bai He only thought that Luo Youlin was exaggerating. Now that he saw the real person, he finally understood that Lin Bai had something up his sleeves. Otherwise, why would they lose so miserably? His interest grew even greater, so he went straight to the point.
“I want to fight you. Do you dare to accept the challenge?”
Lin Bai had already rejected the previous challenge from the Talisman Cultivation Academy and the Imperial Beast Academy.
According to the rules, he could not reject the challenge again this time. However, Lin Bai had never thought of rejecting it.
After all, he had just broken through and was stuck at the state of being one with the world. Little Green was still one step away. Coincidentally, someone came to challenge him, giving him a chance to practice.
Ordinary demonic beasts were like cutting melons and cutting vegetables to Lin Bai. It was useless to fight them at all, and it was a waste of time.
Only an expert like Bai He could help him gain enlightenment in the battle.
“What benefits do I get if I beat you?”
Hearing Lin Bai’s question, Bai He seemed to have heard a joke. He curled his lips, as if he was sure that he could not lose. Even so, he still opened his mouth and said.
“If you win, I will hand over the treasure map of the secret realm. If I win, you will hand over all the pills you have refined.”
The expressions of the Sword Cultivator Academy and the others changed slightly when they heard that. “How can eldest senior brother use the treasure map of the secret realm as a bet? You came here for that…”
Bai He’s tone was ice-cold as he said, “Don’t tell me you think I will lose?”
Everyone thought it made sense. Bai He was young and famous, but he had been through hundreds of battles. He had never lost before, and this time was no exception.
There was a sword tomb in the secret realm. It was said that the world-famous sword was buried there. The divine sword had a spirit, and after its master died, it would return to the sword tomb and be sealed until the next fated person arrived.
All the sword cultivators in the world had a common goal, which was to obtain a suitable sword. Although the Dragon Spring Sword in Bai He’s hand was also a slightly famous existence, he still wanted to take a look. If the divine sword could approve of him as its owner, his combat power could easily improve by a hundred times.
He had been stuck at Xiantian eighth level for a long time, but he was unable to break through. Perhaps, he could borrow the power of the divine sword and break through in one go.
This was also the reason why Bai He had come here.
Naturally, Lin Bai had heard of the legend of the sword tomb, but that location was extremely difficult to find. Without a map, it was impossible to enter.
“Then it’s a deal.”
The moment he finished speaking, the two of them retreated at the same time. They actually had a tacit understanding. Bai He unsheathed his sword, and he could vaguely hear the sound of jade. It was like an iceberg colliding with an iceberg, and in an instant, it felt as if the sky and earth were collapsing.
The snow-white body of the sword was extremely dazzling. He waved his sword and slashed out. A powerful air current swept over. It was as if the nine heavens and the Milky Way were coming in mighty waves. It could be said that it flew down three thousand feet.
One could see the enormous dragon body in the Milky Way. What kind of undulation was it? It went against the current and rushed up to the nine heavens. One after another, it swallowed clouds and exhaled fog. It was extremely shocking.
The huge air current shook everyone and forced them to retreat tens of miles away. Only then did they manage to stabilize their bodies. Even they were the same, not to mention Lin Bai, who was in the middle of the battlefield.
Where the tip of the sword was pointing, the sharpness was revealed. It gathered the power of ten thousand long dragons. It was like the roar of the Yellow River. The scene was shocking.
“He is indeed powerful.”
Lin Bai said to himself. He did not dare to underestimate the enemy. If he had not broken through earlier, he might not have been able to dodge this lightning fast strike.
His figure was like a flowing cloud and a cool breeze. It was hard to figure out where he would appear. He shuttled through the group of dragons as if he was dancing with the dragons.
Seeing that Lin Bai had actually dodged, Bai He put away his previously indifferent expression.
“Sure enough, you have some skills. No wonder Luo Youlin and the others were defeated by you. However, I’m not a motley crew like them.”
Luo Youlin and the others, who were called motley crew, were not angry when they heard this.. They only looked on excitedly, wishing that Bai He could beat Lin Bai down in the next second so that they could vent their anger.
