Chapter 14: Family Day (2)
This was not what he expected…
The sturdy middle-aged man was a death row prisoner the clan had recently bought. As a result, he suffered no serious internal injuries. His complexion wasn’t bad and his strength neither mediocre for he’d reached the Flesh Refinement Realm.
After the middle-aged man was chosen, he jumped onto the stage, eyes filled with a vicious light. As a meat target, it was well-known that their life was a fight to the death. There was no way out and taking a step back was akin to being slaughtered.
In the end, there was no need for formalities.
Soon as the middle-aged man stepped foot onto the training ground, he took the initiative and rushed towards Luo Chengyun with all his strength. With his sturdy muscles, he was like a raging bull.
A faint smile appeared on Luo Chenyun’s face as a purple light appeared in his hand. His fingers formed the shape of a bow. When the middle-aged man rushed to Luo Chenyun’s side, Luo Chengyun nimbly moved, and used a purple sandalwood like force.
The force of the purple sandalwood was obscure and didn’t reveal itself. Soon, the middle-aged man stopped in his tracks. He turned around ready to attack again while completely unaware of the injuries he had incurred, but just as he moved a step forward, six muffled explosive sounds came from his body. The middle-aged man instantly spat out six bloody holes. His eyes were as big as an ox, and his expression filled with confusion and unwillingness. His mouth issues a gurgling sound, but was unable to say anything. Then, his eyes gradually lost their luster as he collapsed on the ground.
Death by a single blow…
The disciples that were present burst out in cheers, many of them applauding energetically.
There were also many disciples who seemed to have understood something, their expression indifferent.
As the eldest son of the Luo Clan, it was expected for Luo Chengyun’s talent to be good. After all, he’d been cultivating all kinds of miraculous pills and herbal medicines since he was young. His cultivation speed was faster than the average disciple inside the Luo Clan.
But, it was impossible for his progress to be so… radical. The only explanation that could be provided was that the second and last Heaven and Earth Rebirth Pill had been consumed by him.
Luo Zheng shook his head as a bitter smile appeared on his face.
The first time Luo Pieran mentioned the two had eaten the Heaven and Earth Rebirth Pill, he was furious, but now his heart was calm.
Though the Heaven and Earth Rebirth Pill was marvelous, it was a scarce resource. If it was consumed, then there was no more.
And besides, Luo Zheng didn’t need to worry. He had a special physique. To him, it wouldn’t be able to compare to the Heaven and Earth Rebirth Pill.
Despite this, the actions of his second and third uncle disappointed the Luo Clan’s disciples. It was akin to cheating.
At this moment, Huang He’s voice rang out. “Young Master has won the first death match!”
Luo Chengyun stretched his wrist and looked at Huang Ge. “Chief Steward, that now was just a test. I still want to challenge another person.”
Huang Ge’s eyes lit up, thinking the time had come. “Very well. Since that was a test, I’ll allow the Young Master to choose another target.”
Luo Chengyun turned his head and pointed his finger at the meat targets. When they saw his fingers, the faces of the meat targets turned pale. They’d already seen his power to the point that the middle-aged man exploded to death. If one of them were to be picked, surely they’d die. His fingers was like the God of Death’s scythes. Anyone who touched them would see King Yama (King of Hell).
In the end, Luo Chengyun’s gaze stopped on Luo Zheng. He crooked his finger and smiled. “You, come up!”
Everyone followed Luo Chengyun’s fingers and looked over their shoulder. His chosen target was… Luo Zheng!
To a meat target, a fight to the death was a battle in which only one side would win or die.
Therefore, in the past death matches, when the disciples of the Luo Clan picked a target, they’d unintentionally avoid Luo Zheng. Though he was charged with treason, none would dare to truly want his death if the family head didn’t order his execution.
But today, Luo Chengyun actually chose Luo Zheng.
Those with discerning eyes knew that Luo Zheng’s unlucky death loomed nearby.
“It’s finally here!” Without another word, Luo Zheng walked out of the line and climbed up the stage expressionlessly. He cupped his hands and said, “If you would, Young Master.”
“Big Cousin, why do you speak to me as if we’re strangers?” Luo Chengyun’s eyes narrowed.
