Ghost King’s Medical Consort - Chapter 39
Those two were both around fifth-stage True Cultivators!
The expressions on everyone’s faces bore signs of shock, astonishment and outright disbelief, their eyes and mouth falling wide open. Was this really Mu Qianyue, the number one trash in the nation?
Jun Lintian was stunned for a moment, as if not expecting Mu Qianyue’s movements to be so clean and lacking any sloppiness. “Not bad!”
Holding a longsword in his hand, he lunged towards Mu Qianyue.The fierce sword of qi streaked towards her with uninhibited precision. Narrowing her eyes, she snatched the sword from someone next to her, then went up to receive the attack.
Even now, she gave off a sharp disposition. The True Essence Energy in her body seethed from within her, gathering toward the sword’s edge. The sword qi’s sharpness was unrivaled, and her hair that was black as ink spread out behind her. Even though there was no wind, her clothes fluttered with the strong aura surrounding her.
At this moment, the young lady was beautiful like a fairy who had walked out from a drawing. She also looked like the descendant of a battle god!
“She’s a ninth-stage True Cultivator!”
A commotion broke out and everyone perked up their eyes, opened their eyes wide as if they had heard wrongly.
How was it possible she was a ninth-stage True Cultivator? Wasn’t she a tenth-stage Body Tempering piece of trash? When did she become a ninth-stage True Cultivator? Could it be that her uselessness in the past was all just an act?
15-year-old ninth-stage True Cultivators weren’t rare in the Heavenly Martial Continent, but she was the only one who could single-handedly take on 12 people of a similar level! These 12 participants were basically people who were around fifth-stage to ninth-stage!
How on earth did manage to do such a thing?
If everyone were to find out that Mu Qianyue had managed to jump up nine stages consecutively within two months, they’d probably be so flabbergasted that their eyeballs would drop out.
If someone of such aptitude were to be called trash, then wouldn’t they be trash amongst all trash?
“Swoosh!” Nalan Yu couldn’t help but stand up, his eyes glaring at Mu Qianyue with a bone-chilling intensity.
A ninth-stage True Cultivator? When did she become a ninth-stage True Cultivator? If it wasn’t that he had the help of countless heavenly and earthly treasures, as well as that from his master, he couldn’t have become an eighth-stage True Cultivator so quickly! At this moment, Nalan Yu realized that he had neglected one thing. Two months ago, Mu Qianyue clearly was only at the tenth-stage of the Body-Tempering Stage!
Didn’t this mean that she had jumped up nine stages consecutively in two months?!
What terrifying talent!
When he looked at the Mu Qianyue who displayed such peerless magnificence, and thinking of how he had been rendered impotent, a blind rage coursed through his blood. Then at the thought that she had gotten married to Nalan Jing… Fury and hatred surged in Nalan Yu’s heart, tearing at him incessantly to the point he wanted to charge up to her and rip her to shreds!
At this moment, the ten participants on the stage, Jun Lintian included, had all been knocked off by Mu Qianyue.
“There’s still me.” Nalan Yu stood up, his gaze looking savage and distorted as he walked up slowly.
As Mu Qianyue raised her head to look toward him, her gaze narrowed slightly. It seemed that Nalan Yu’s disposition had become a lot darker than before. Perhaps he had undergone a huge change in his character since becoming impotent.
“Mu Qianyue, I want you to kneel at my feet, trembling as you submit to me!” Nalan Yu looked at this extremely beautiful face with great hatred. She must have condensed her True Essence Energy long ago but deliberately hidden this fact so that he would detest her. That night he spent at the Defender Marquis Manor must also be one of her schemes! Not only that, the Ghost King going to the Crown Prince Manor to cripple him was definitely related to her as well!
This sl*t must have hooked up with the Ghost King a long time ago!
Nalan Yu’s imagination was really great. To think that he managed to guess things to this extent.
At the thought of this, Nalan Yu’s countenance turned even more vicious and he seemed to be enshrouded in an oppressive darkness. In one movement, the longsword in his hand shook. Its blade was cold as a shard of ice shot fiercely toward Mu Qianyue.
Mu Qianyue didn’t dodge but took the attack head-on. The two swords clashed in the air, sparks ringing in the air.
She felt a strong impact in her hand and a piercing pain pulsing from her arm. The sharp sword of wind undid her bun and her hair scattered down like a waterfall. The faint glow in her eyes made her pupils look deeper and brighter.
Nalan Yu, who was opposite her, backed off one step unconsciously, stabilizing himself.
Everyone drew in a cold gasp. It had been a while since the Crown Prince had become a ninth-stage True Cultivator. To think that despite that, he only managed to come to a draw with her!
After the tie in the first round, they engaged in battle once again. An unyielding battle of light and shadows flickered as the sword qi seethed and thrummed about the dueling plaform. It was extremely intense as the crowd watched with bated breath.
Amidst the surprised gasps, Nalan Zheng’s countenance continued to change. To think that the person who was once the number one trash in the Phoenix Shadow Nation turned out to be at a comparable level with Yu’er… This magnificent talent could be said to be hard to come by even in a hundred years. A grim shadow gradually appeared on his forehead.
On a roof in the distance, Dongfang Ao gulped down a flask of wine, his eyes brimming with a radiant smile that was mirrored on his lips. He felt a strong sense of exhilaration. What were those people who scolded his disciple for being trash going to do? Hmph! If it wasn’t because he was afraid that his disciple might be unhappy, he’d have dashed up to them and sent all these blind people flying.
In comparison, Nalan Ye was the most calm. His fingers held onto the chair’s armrest lightly, his eyes emitted a faint smile. Yue’er had always been this outstanding and eye-catching!
“To think that it’s her!” Lin Xu’s expression radiated more than a hint of surprise.
“Master Lin knows her?” Nalan Zheng, who was next to him, asked.
“Your Majesty, do you remember when I previously mentioned to you about a genius female Apothecary?” Lin Xu’s eyes narrowed.
Nalan Zheng gave it some thought before saying, “I do. Master Lin said that there was a young lady who was about 15 years old and possessed outstanding aptitude for refining medicine. She could be said to be a rare talent in 100 years. You wanted to take her in as your disciple but you were rejected by her…” Midway through his words, he suddenly looked toward Mu Qianyue, a deep and complicated gleam flashing past in his eyes. “Could the person that Master Lin mentioned be her?”
“That’s right, it’s her. I tried searching for her for two months, but failed. I didn’t expect it to be her!” Lin Xu’s gaze was complicated as he said this. It was no wonder he couldn’t find her despite almost combing through the entire Phoenix Shadow City. Who would have expected that a trash would be a medicine-refining genius?
Nalan Zheng’s gaze sank. If the Apothecary genius Lin Xu mentioned was really her, then a person like her would definitely rise one day. It was fine if she could be used by him, but if she wasn’t willing to… then she could not be kept alive!
At this moment, Nalan Yu had completely been forced into a disadvantageous situation and was sent flying before crumpling onto the ground.
“I won’t lose! How could I lose to trash!” Nalan Yu’s gaze suddenly became savage. His wrist shook and a medicine pill appeared in his hand. He raised his head and swallowed it. Nalan Yu’s aura suddenly surged, spiking to reach the realm of a first-stage Spirit Cultivator!
“Sigh, I didn’t expect that Yu’er still ended up taking the Essence Heightening Pill. Although it can sustain him to be at the first-stage of the Spirit Cultivator realm for half an hour, the impact on the body is huge. I hope that it won’t affect his future cultivation.” Lin Xu let out a sigh amidst his surprise.
Nalan Yu moved swiftly, turning into a ferocious cheetah as he pounced towards Mu Qianyue. His steel longsword kept on swinging in his hand, sending blades of light flickering and looking very dazzling. It was so bright it almost blinded everyone’s eyes!
Mu Qianyue’s countenance changed slightly, having a hint of solemnity in them. It was true that such an opponent was very strong!
However, it wasn’t to the extent of being impossible to go up against!
