Invincible Kungfu Healer Chapter 889
"Whats the matter?" Xie Rengui looked at Yun Peng and Wang He quizzically. They were behaving in a very odd manner.
"Sect Leader, Im afraid this person was the mysterious senior we met that day"
Yun Peng gave a wry smile and summarized what had happened at the Five Tigers Sect. He had already understood that this mysterious young man had been protecting Su Waner.
Both of them broke out in a cold sweat. It was lucky that they had taken Su Waner along when they went to the branch of the Huatian palace. If not, the consequences might have been dire. They had no idea if that youngster was the mysterious man who appeared at Five Tigers Sect, but he must be linked to the matter.
Five Tigers Sect was just a minor sect. It was impossible for them to have any connections with the strong practitioners of the Martial Arts Grandmaster Realm. Moreover, that person had apparently been defending Su Waner, and this youngster was with Su Waner now.
"What? Thats him!"
Xie Rengui peered at Mo Wen in shock then turned his gaze towards Su Waner and Wang Qian. The reason was so simple that he could understand it in an instant, but he just had not expected Su Waner to have saved such a horrifyingly strong practitioner when she had simply descended the hill to gather herbs. This
By then, Wang Qian had also caught hold of the situation and was in disbelief. She knew that Mo Wen was someone who was skilled in martial arts and had considerable cultivation, but she had not imagined that he was so good. "He cant be that old," she thought. "At most, hes around the same age as I am."
Su Waner was still in a daze, but she had recognized the essence of the problem. Was Brother Mo the invincible, strong practitioner who had helped her at the Five Tigers Sect? She couldnt believe that he was the one who had protected her and given them the Dragon City Talisman. At that time, Brother Mo had needed her to protect and treat him. Everything had changed so quickly.
"Mo Wen is a member of the Huatian Palace Martial Arts Grandmaster Palace Hall. As the youngest executive of the Martial Arts Grandmaster Palace Hall, its a given for him to take part in the Heaven List Tournament."
Only Tang Zhizhi remained calm because she already knew Mo Wens identity. However, she was still surprised that he had become a member of the Martial Arts Grandmaster Palace Hall at such a young age. Logically speaking, his cultivation couldnt be too high, at most attaining the Martial Arts Grandmaster First Realm. Yet, he had managed to enter the Mechanized Maze City, which many strong practitioners of the Martial Arts Grandmaster could not.
"Waner, your mother was right. Good begets good."
With complex emotions, Wang Qian glanced at Waner. She was the person she felt closest to in the entire Five Tigers Sect. Waner was kind-hearted and innocent by nature. Her principle was to perform good deeds without asking for anything in return. Many seniors and juniors in the Five Tigers Sect could not understand her behavior. Because she was too kind, Waner had also been hurt countless times. Despite hearing advice from the seniors and juniors, Waner kept to her principles. Gradually, Waner and the others drifted apart due to the difference between them.
Waners favorite words were those that were left behind by her mother.
Wang Qian admired Su Waner a lot for her simplicity and kind nature. She knew she would not be able to sacrifice so much to show kindness for others. In her opinion, it was right to do good, but it should be within ones own capabilities. However, this was not the case for Waner.
Good deeds build good karma. So, karma exists.
"Sister Tang, did Brother Mo also take part in the Heaven List Tournament? Do you think he can make it into the top ten?" Su Waner blushed and asked excitedly.
It was natural for her to feel this way since the top ten ranking of the Heaven List was the hot topic these days, and she had suddenly discovered someone whom she knew was part of it.
"This is hard to tell."
Tang Zhizhi forced a smile. Looking at the current situation, this years Heaven List Tournament undoubtedly would be pretty shocking. Guo Mengqiao, who she had always thought would claim first position in the Heaven List, was only in eighth place at the moment. It was hard to tell whether he would even be able to secure this position.
As for the other genius from the Martial Arts Grandmaster Palace Hall, Chou Tong, it was almost impossible for him to get into the top ten. He was not even in the top 20 at the moment.
Since two strong practitioners from the Martial Arts Grandmaster Palace Hall also ended up in this situation, she did not hold out any hopes for Mo Wen. Of course, it would not be nice for her to say this in front of everyone.
Almost simultaneously, Wang Yinru and her group stood up abruptly, all eyes on the person who had turned out to be Mo Wen, the one whom they had been waiting for.
"Palace Master has broken through to the Mechanized Maze City." Tan Qiyues eyes beamed with joy. The stronger Mo Wen was, the better it was for Ming Palace.
"Its a surprise that he has managed to advance to this stage." Hu Qiongqi was astounded. He had previously stayed in the same dormitory as Mo Wen, and they were of the same generation. This struck him even deeper. They were now worlds apart.
"Two months ago, his cultivation was just on par with mine. It hasnt been that long, and he has already advanced so much. He is indeed fearsome." Qin Banshuang took a deep breath, thinking about the times he had spent with Mo Wen at theTan Zi Beast Lair. Only a few months had passed, yet it felt like centuries.
"Is the Green Ancient Mystery Dimension finally going to rise?"
The same thought occurred to Granny Huiling, Bu Zhangkun, Pavilion Leader Ye Rong, and the others.
"Spring has finally arrived for the Ming Preservation Faction."
Out of all of them, Chen Zi from the Intentionless Sect was the most emotional. He was originally from the Ming Preservation Faction, and they had held the same belief for generations. At this moment, their belief finally had a chance to turn into reality.
Chen Zi watched Mo Wen with complex emotions and eventually just let out a sigh.
A battle worth 10,000 points was about to take place on the challenge ring. It came under the spotlight, gaining the attention of many criminals.
A few of the stronger criminals were instantly tempted. As long as they could defeat Mo Wen, they could get 10,000 points, but if they lost, they would have to hand over 15000 points. The battle had its risks. If they were not strong enough, it could be a double whammy.
Nevertheless, seeing that Mo Wen did not have a strong aura, some of them made up their mind.
Whoosh! Whoosh! Whoosh!
In an instant, four shadows flew up into the sky and appeared on the challenge ring in front of Mo Wen.
All four of them were elderly. There were three men and one woman. They were strong practitioners from Martial Arts Grandmaster Third Realm, possessing exceptionally strong auras. This level of cultivation was rare even in Heart of the Red Stone Forest.
"The three of you back off! I have a blood feud with this person, and I must be the one to kill him. Cant you just show me respect?"
The old lady in the group was none other than the Granny whom Mo Wen had met earlier. If it had not been for her pursuit, Mo Wen would not have found the Cold Pool Valley.
When foes meet, their eyes blaze with hatred. The Granny gave Mo Wen a murderous look. He had killed the ferocious combat pet that she had cultivated for a century, and she could not wait to chop Mo Wen into pieces.
Mo Wens appearance at the challenge ring was not within her expectations. If he had broken through to the Cold Pool Valley, he would not have been able to come out alive. "Hes lucky," she thought. "But to appear here and set up a challenge is seeking death, and I will see to it."
"Granny Zhang Feng, you are too overbearing. We do not care if you have a feud with him. In the challenge ring battle, anyone has the right to challenge. Your personal feud should not affect us," one of the old men of the trip responded composedly. The other two remained silent, and their expressions were hesitant, showing apparent fear of Zhang Feng.
Nonetheless, the trio were no fools. Since Granny Zhang Feng had a feud with this youngster and had dared to step onto the challenge ring, she must have fought him before and knew that he was no match for her.
As such, they knew that the youngster must be pretty strong to be able to escape Granny Zhang Fengs pursuit. If not, he would not be alive. Even so, he was still no match for Granny Zhang Feng.
The criminals in Heart of the Red Stone Forest were sly and cunning. It was easy for them to gauge Mo Wens ability with just a comment from the Granny.
However, none of the four had any idea that was was the way things used to be.
"The three of you wish to fight me?" Granny Zhang Feng narrowed her eyes coldly, full of threats.
Two out of the three old men exchanged glances then walked away in a flash without a word. Granny Zhang Feng was quite well-known in Heart of the Red Stone Forest. As ultimate warriors of the Martial Arts Grandmaster Third Realm, there was a big gap between their abilities. It was not worth offending Zhang Feng because of a challenge ring battle.
Of course, some people were not afraid of Zhang Feng, and one of them was the old man who had spoken earlier.
"Granny Zhang Feng, stop threatening us. According to the rules of the challenge ring battle, the spot goes to the one who offers the most number of points when there are a few competitors who wish to compete."
"I am willing to offer 20,000 points for this battle. If you are not willing to take on such a big risk, please leave, Granny Zhang Feng."
The old man remained poised. To offer 20,000 for a 10,000 points challenge ring battle was already very high. Usually, people would not take such a big risk unless they were very confident in their ability.
"I offer 30,000 points. You better not be too greedy and push things too far."
The look on Granny Zhang Feng was extremely eerie and hideous.
The old man was stunned. He did not expect Granny Zhang Feng to be ruthless enough to wage 30,000 points, which was three times the points on the challenge ring. This had rarely happened at the death corner fighting ring.
At the same time, he recognized the severity of the issue. If he were to continue pushing the matter, he might end up fighting with Granny Zhang Feng. Nothing good would result from a feud with such an insane woman. Moreover, the risks of continuing to add to the points which already totaled 30,000 would be too high. It was certainly not wise to do so when he had only slightly over 30,000 points, and the benefits did not outweigh the risks.
"Granny Zhang Feng, I shall let you off this once." The old man pondered and chose to withdraw.
"Little brat, we meet again. Your time is up today." With a stride, Granny Zhang Feng was already on the challenge ring. At the same time, light flashed on the central screen. 30,000 points had been automatically deducted from Granny Zhang Fengs total.
"Why do you need to keep pursuing me?" Mo Wen smiled calmly. He had spotted the Granny much earlier, but he was not affected by her appearance and had kept his composure.
"You killed my beloved pet. I must chop you into a thousand pieces. I shall see how you can escape on the challenge ring."
Granny Zhang Feng laughed viciously. There was no escape on the challenge ring. Besides, no one could surrender in the first 15 minutes of the battle. She just had to kill Mo Wen within 15 minutes. "15 minutes?" she thought. "Hmph! More than sufficient to kill a little brat!"
