Chapter 3198: Zhang Jin Yi
Translator: EndlessFantasy Translation Editor: EndlessFantasy Translation
In the Phantom Fox Clan’s branch in the Southern Heaven Territory.
“Branch Leader Zhang Dong Nan of the Phantom Fox Clan’s branch in the Southern Heaven Territory welcomes the main clan’s envoy,” Zhang Dong Nan and the elders from the Phantom Fox Clan’s branch in the Southern Heaven Territory respectfully greeted Zhang Jin Yi, the envoy from the Phantom Fox Clan in the Seven Upper Province.
Although Zhang Jin Yi was only a Ten Directions Celestial King, as a direct descendant of the Zhang Clan in the Phantom Fox Clan, his bloodline was purer than Zhang Dong Nan and the others from the branch clans. Therefore, Zhang Jin Yi was rather haughty and only responded airily to Zhang Dong Nan even though Zhang Dong Nan was a Celestial Lord.
“Please follow me, Lord Envoy.” Zhang Dong Nan personally led Zhang Jin Yi to the main hall.
Among the elders, only Zhang Zhen Hai followed Zhang Jin Yi and Zhang Dong Nan into the main hall.
As the trio walked away, one of the elders said, clearly dissatisfied, “That young man is the envoy from the main clan? He’s just a mere Ten Directions Celestial King. How dare he act so arrogantly in front of the branch leader!”
Due to a life-saving grace, this elder was more loyal to Zhang Dong Nan compared to the main clan. He was, naturally, displeased that a junior from the main clan disrespected Zhang Dong Nan even though Zhang Dong Nan did not seem to take offense.
Another elder shushed the displeased elder. He looked at the trio furtively before he said, “Lower your voice! He’s the envoy from the main clan. Even the branch leader won’t be able to do anything if he kills you.”
“I wonder if he’s capable of dealing with that woman who’s suspected to be the Thousand Phantoms Ice Fox.”
“Since the main clan sent him here, he has to be quite capable.”
“It’d be a joke if he can’t deal with that woman. At that time, I wonder how the main clan would react.”
“That’s unlikely to happen…”
The group of elders from the Phantom Fox Clan’s branch in the Southern Heaven Territory was still discussing among themselves when Zhang Jin Yi and the others arrived in the main hall.
“Lord Envoy, how should I address you?” Zhang Dong Nan asked Zhang Jin Yi with a smile.
“You’re not worthy of knowing my name,” Zhang Jin Yi replied nonchalantly as he puffed his chest out and held his head high.
Zhang Dong Nan froze upon hearing Zhang Jin Yi’s words.
On the contrary, Zhang Zhen Hai said indignantly, “How dare you act so impudently to the branch leader!”
“Impudent?” Zhang Jin Yi glanced at Zhang Zhen Hai as his eyes flashed with a cold light. “How dare a lowly member of a branch clan like you raise your voice at a direct descendant from the main clan?”
“A direct descendant from the main clan?” Zhang Dong Nan’s eyes widened. He knew the main clan would send a powerful Ten Directions Celestial King, but he did not expect the main clan to send a direct descendant.
A cold scoff rang in the air at this moment.
Upon hearing this, Zhang Dong Nan’s expression changed drastically. He hastily raised his hand to stop Zhang Jin Yi from attacking Zhang Zhen Hai.
“Lord Envoy, please have mercy.” Zhang Dong Nan quickly cupped his fists together and bowed at Zhang Jin Yi. His back was completely drenched in cold sweat at this moment.
‘A direct descendant from the main clan?’ Zhang Zhen Hai’s expression changed drastically as well at this revelation. Naturally, he knew direct descendants from the main clan represented the prestige and purest bloodline of the Phantom Foxes. They were second only to the Thousand Phantoms Ice Fox.
“You’re trying to stop me? Do you know the consequences of your action?” Zhang Jin Yi asked as he stared at Zhang Dong Nan coldly.
“Lord Envoy, Elder Zhen Hai raised me since I was a child. I can’t possibly watch him die without doing anything,” Zhang Dong Nan said in a placating tone, “Please have mercy.”
“Alright. I’ll give him a chance. Since he’s also a Ten Directions Celestial King, I’ll spare him if he can withstand my attack for two breaths.” Zhang Jin Yi’s eyes gleamed coldly and a sneer appeared on his face when he discovered Zhang Zhen Hai was also a Ten Directions Celestial King.
“Two breaths?” Zhang Dong Nan was taken aback. He did not expect Zhang Jin Yi to be so unyielding and arrogant. Even the pride of the 10,000 Battles Heaven Sect who was widely regarded as invincible among his peers would not dare to confidently declare he could kill Zhang Zhen Hai in five breaths.
‘Perhaps, he’s just trying to look for a way to dismiss this matter while retaining his pride…’ Zhang Dong Nan thought to himself. Even if Zhang Jin Yi was stronger than the pride of the 10,000 Battles Heaven Sect, he did not think it was possible for Zhang Jin Yi to kill Zhang Zhen Hai in two breaths.
“Two breaths?” Zhang Zhen Hai smiled. Similar to Zhang Dong Nan, he a.s.sumed Zhang Jin Yi was only doing this as a formality and had already decided to spare him.
“Lord Envoy, please.” Zhang Zhen Hai gestured to Zhang Jin Yi before he led Zhang Jin Yi outside the main hall.
Then, Zhang Dong Nan and the two opponents rose into the sky.
Upon seeing this, the members of the Phantom Fox Clan’s branch were confused.
A group of elders gathered and watched the scene in the sky.
“Isn’t that the branch leader?”
“Elder Zhen Hai is there as well!”
“Is the envoy from the main clan going to fight with Elder Zhen Hai?”
“Maybe they’re testing their strength?”
Meanwhile, Zhang Jin Yi looked at Zhang Zhen Hai with eyes gleaming with disdain as he said indifferently, “I’ll give you 15 minutes to prepare, and I’ll give you a reminder before I attack. Like I said earlier, if you manage to withstand my attack for two breaths, I’ll spare you. Otherwise, you can only die…”
The atmosphere grew heavy as soon as Zhang Jin Yi finished speaking.
The members of the Phantom Fox Clan’s branch were shocked upon hearing these words.
“What’s going on?”
“It… it seems like he wants to kill Elder Zhen Hai?”
“He thinks he can kill Elder Zhen Hai in two breaths? Isn’t he a Ten Directions Celestial King? Even the pride of the 10,000 Battles Heaven Sect wouldn’t dare to make such a statement, right?”
“That’s right. I remember Elder Zhen Hai fought that person from the 10,000 Battles Heaven Sect previously… Elder Zhen Hai managed to last for six breaths before he lost.”
“Maybe he’s not the envoy from the main clan?”
A group of members who had heard the commotion began to gather as well.
“What’s going on?”
All of the onlookers were confused. Why did it seem like the envoy from the main clan wanted to kill Zhang Zhen Hai? However, after listening to Zhang Dong Nan’s words, they realized that Zhang Zhen Hai had offended Zhang Jin Yi who was a direct descendant of the main clan.
“Two breaths? It seems like the envoy has no intention of killing Elder Zhen Hai. He’s just saying that so he can retreat from this situation gracefully….”
“That’s right… It’s impossible for him to kill Elder Zhen Hai in two breaths!”
“It’s impossible unless he’s a Celestial Lord…”
Similar to Zhang Dong Nan and Zhang Zhen Hai, most of the onlookers were of the opinion that it was impossible for Zhang Jin Yi to kill Zhang Zhen Hai within two breaths.
After fifteen minutes, Zhang Jin Yi indicated he was about to attack.
Zhang Zhen Hai did not even have a chance to move before he discovered Zhang Jin Yi had appeared behind him. His expression darkened, and in that split second, he exploded into a mist of blood.
As the blood mist dissipated in the air, Zhang Jin Yi said airily, “It seems like I overestimated you. You can’t even withstand my attack for less than half a breath…”
The entire place was as silent as a graveyard at this moment.
Zhang Dong Nan stood frozen in place, speechless. When he regained his senses, he shuddered. ‘This is the strength of a direct descendant from the main clan?’ Due to him being a Celestial Lord, he was able to see Zhang Jin Yi using the technique that was exclusive to descendants of the Phantom Foxes with the purest bloodline.
Zhang Dong Nan continued thinking to himself, ‘In my opinion, even that person from the 10,000 Battles Heaven Sect wouldn’t be able to last more than ten breaths against him…’ Although he was devastated by Zhang Zhen Hai’s death and wanted to avenge him, he knew he did not have the capability to do so unless he had a death wish.
When the onlookers regained their senses, they realized they had been too naive. At this moment, they looked at Zhang Jin Yi as though he was a terrifying monster.
Meanwhile, Zhang Dong Nan finally broke the suffocating silence. “Lord Envoy, with your strength, you must be invincible among your peers in the main clan, right?”
Upon hearing Zhang Dong Nan’s question, Zhang Jin Yi c.o.c.ked an eyebrow. Then, he said with a contemptuous smile on his face, “Invincible among my peers in the main clan? How naive! Let alone the main clan, I’m only the third strongest among my peers in the Zhang Clan!”
Silence descended again.
Zhang Dong Nan’s eyes widened in shock and disbelief. A powerful Ten Directions Celestial King like Zhang Jin Yi was not the strongest among his peers in the main clan? Moreover, Zhang Jin Yi was only the third strongest among his peers in the Zhang Clan? This was the first time he felt like his knowledge was too shallow; he was like a frog at the bottom of a well.
