A suspicious look appeared on Zhou Xun’s face.
Chu Li asked angrily, “You don’t believe me, Commander?”
“Dead men tell no tales,” Zhou Xun replied. “What if he didn’t turn into a ray of light and vanish?”
“Why would I lie to you, Commander?” Chu Li protested. “He really turned into a ray and ascended to Heaven. I even heard the sound of chanting. It seemed like he had become a Buddha… This old monk was too powerful. If it wasn’t for him, I wouldn’t possess the strength I have now.”
“He told you not to teach this martial art to any outsider?”
“Well, no.” Chu Li shook his head. “He only told me not to tell anyone about it, so as to avoid people who might want to snatch this martial art, because it was simply too powerful.”
“If he really were that powerful, you wouldn’t still be an acquired master.” Zhou Xun shook his head.
“He said this is so that I can build my foundation. If I can build a better foundation than everyone else, I’ll be able to cultivate any kind of martial arts more easily and faster compared to others, so I can become stronger than them!” Chu Li smiled proudly.
Zhou Xun said, “Practice it and let me have a look.”
“Commander, you’d like to learn it too?” Chu Li sounded nervous.
Zhou Xun replied, “I’m just curious to see what kind of martial art you’re talking about.”
“But…” Chu Li tried to make an excuse. “Commander, you’re a Grandmaster. It won’t be useful for you to learn this.”
“Stop talking. Just perform the stances. You don’t have to tell me the heart technique, so I won’t be able to learn!”
“You really won’t be able to learn it?”
“If you refuse to do it, I’m not going to protect you anymore,” Zhou Xun said coldly.
Chu Li sighed. “Alright then, I’ll go back and perform it for you.”
The two of them came to Chu Li’s courtyard.
He practiced the six levels of the Sentient Menace at lightning speed, making its original slow actions look as swift and violent as fighting moves instead.
Zhou Xun frowned while watching him.
Chu Li rapidly finished his practice and looked at him proudly. “How is it, Commander? It’s marvelous, right?”
“It’s indeed the Sentient Menace,” Zhou Xun muttered.
The Tempest Temple’s Sentient Menace was well-known worldwide, and the Holy Church of Light possessed the first three levels of the Sentient Menace.
Zhou Xun had attempted to cultivate the Sentient Menace before but had not succeeded in learning it, because the beginning of the Sentient Menace was just too hard. Given that the heart technique from the latter part was missing as well, he merely gave it a try and then gave up without studying it in depth when he failed to learn it.
Now, upon seeing Chu Li’s movements, he immediately recognized it.
Chu Li said, “Sentient Menace. What an impressive name!”
“What else did the old monk say?” Zhou Xun asked with a frown.
Chu Li shook his head. “Oh, he only told me not to go to the Ji Dynasty, or I’ll encounter a fatal disaster. Of course, I won’t go to the Ji Dynasty.”
“A fatal disaster…” Zhou Xun was still frowning.
Chu Li nodded. “Why will I encounter a fatal disaster?”
“Probably because of this martial art,” Zhou Xun replied. “Alright then, it’s getting late now. You should get some rest. Be wary of another assassination attempt by Feng Xi!”
Chu Li scoffed and said, “As long as he’s not doing it himself, there’s no need for me to worry about fighting the others!”
Zhou Xun laughed and turned to leave.
A sudden hope emerged within his heart. If what Zhao Dahe’s words were true, then the situation would become favorable.
Zhao Dahe had cultivated the Sentient Menace but was not from the Tempest Temple. If he could cultivate the Great Light Scripture on top of that, he would get the best of both worlds. This might turn out to be very advantageous for his self-cultivation, in which case his future achievements would be much greater.
The greater Zhao Dahe’s achievements were, Zhou Xun, as the person who had recommended him, would also rise in status.
Therefore, he changed his mind and did not kill him.
In the evening, Chu Li came to a restaurant.
He did not feel like eating at home. Also, he wanted to see who Feng Xi would send and what means they would use to assassinate him this time.
However, nothing happened even as he finished his meal.
On his way home, his footsteps suddenly came to a stop as he turned into a quiet alley.
Feng Xi slowly emerged from the shadows at the corner of the wall.
Chu Li knitted his brows together as he looked at him. “Commander Feng.”
Feng Xi’s plump figure and stern expression gave off a strong threatening feeling as the man fixed his gaze on Chu Li. “Zhao Dahe, it was you who killed Changwen, wasn’t it?”
“Yes, it was me!” Chu Li readily admitted.
“Why did you have to kill him?” Feng Xi slowly took a step forward. “Although he pushed you off the cliff, it brought about your fortuitous encounter. Why did you have to murder him?”
Chu Li replied, “I was lucky to have received my fortuitous encounter. Indeed he killed me, and I’m the kind of person who treats people the way they treat me. Since he killed me, I had to repay the favor. It’s as simple as that!”
“Well then, in that case, you’ll have nothing to say if I killed you too, right?” Feng Xi said. “You’ve killed Changwen, so I shall avenge him.”
“Sure, let’s compare our abilities then!” Chu Li nodded.
He pulled out his blade and swung it at the other man.
Feng Xi glided ten feet backward and threw a fist.
“Bang!” Chu Li was sent flying and crashed into the wall of the alleyway.
Chu Li tightened his grip on his long blade as he took out a small stone from his inner pocket and threw it at Feng Xi. The stone gave a sharp whistling sound as it moved at the speed of light.
Feng Xi thrust his palm forward but the small stone broke through the obstruction of his palm energy and came at him.
He swiftly turned his body to dodge it and then shook his head. “You may seem very strong in the eyes of an innate master, but you won’t be able to withstand even a single blow from a Grandmaster. There’s no need for you to struggle in vain. Just slit your own throat and give yourself a quick death!”
“You wish!” Chu Li replied with a huff.
He took out a handful of stones from his inner pocket and threw them at the man. The stones moved like a shadow as they whizzed ahead.
Feng Xi frowned and began to wave his palms about while moving back to avoid being struck by the stones.
With a sudden huge stride, Chu Li lunged forward at an incredible speed. His long blade moved like a streak of a silver waterfall as it slashed down at the man.
Feng Xi waved his palms while his plump body moved about with great agility to dodge the stones. Then as the long blade came at him, he easily avoided it by stepping sideways.
The blade went after him as it changed its direction and adopted the River Razing Form.
Feng Xi glided a step backward and evaded the blade effortlessly.
Chu Li strode forward and switched into the Yin Lifting Form.
Feng Xi twisted his body aside and took a step forward, dodging the long blade while simultaneously launching a punch.
“Bang!” Chu Li was sent flying again.
This time, it seemed as though he was hanging on the wall of the alleyway since he was stuck and did not slide off.
Feng Xi threw another fist.
“Bang!” Chu Li’s body jerked as the punch landed directly on him. Instantly, blood flowed out from the corner of his lips, indicating the seriousness of his injury.
Feng Xi’s seemingly effortless punch had in fact, been a full-force attack and he had initially thought that he would be able to kill Chu Li with that one blow.
Chu Li wiped the corner of his mouth and said hatefully, “You do deserve to be called a Grandmaster!”
Feng Xi calmly replied, “And you have quite a refined physique. Take this!”
He launched another punch.
Chu Li’s long blade pierced into the wall and he dropped to the ground at once.
“Bang!” A clear fist mark appeared on the wall at the spot where his precordium had been.
This fist had been extremely solid and skillful.
As Chu Li rolled his body over, another fist mark appeared on the ground. Then, he proceeded to roll toward Feng Xi and was sent flying once more by a punch from Feng Xi.
Chu Li felt like a rag doll being beaten up by him.
More blood seeped out from the corner of his mouth. He gritted his teeth and fixed a death glare on Feng Xi. His eyes were filled with discontent and anger as he kept throwing himself at Feng Xi and was sent flying each time.
Feng Xi continued to launch punches while shaking his head. “It’s useless.”
Chu Li replied resentfully, “I will kill you!”
“Hehe, you can stop hoping for it in this lifetime!” Feng Xi wore a faint smile as he threw yet another punch.
“Bang!” Chu Li was sent flying through the air.
He suddenly reached out and caught the top of the wall before pulling himself over the wall and disappearing into a residence.
Feng Xi shook his head at his vain struggle and leaped over the wall.
“Tsh!” A cold glint flashed before him.
Feng Xi was unfazed by this surprise attack and knocked the blade away with his fingers.
“Ding…” The long blade flew off at the impact.
It seemed like Chu Li had finally been drained of his extraordinary strength and he could not even keep a firm grip on his blade.
He slid off the wall and landed on the ground as he lost the energy to escape. He could only watch helplessly as Feng Xi’s palm struck his precordium.
His eyes grew dim as the light in them extinguished. His body remained straight and unmoving for a while. Then, he slowly collapsed on the ground and breathed his last.
