Chapter 44 

Edited by: Mochiusagi

Yinhai University gym.

Two youths were fighting fiercely. One of them was Gu Shuyao's childhood friend Zhaowu, who Yin Xiu met earlier.

His opponent was a boy in his twenties. The opponent's strength was not bad, and he's obviously been practicing martial arts for many years.

However, compared to Zhaowu, the latter still had a long way to go. His cultivation level was probably similar to that of Gu Shuyao, at the Bone Refinement Stage.

Zhaowu has already reached the Marrow Refinement Stage and was just one step away from the Qi Gathering Stage. The two's realms were not just at the same level.

And the scene being played out was as expected, Zhaowu was dominating the opponent. Although that person desperately wanted to counterattack, he was lacking in strength.

In addition to the two of them who were fighting, there were also several other people present.

Among them was Gu Shuyao, who was standing with another girl, and a middle-aged man on the other side.

At this time, Gu Shuyao didn't pay much attention to the two fighting and instead focused most of her attention on the middle-aged man.

The girl next to Gu Shuyao stared at the court closely and her gaze was directed at Zhaowu, somewhat nervous. 

The face of the middle-aged man on the opposite side wasn't exactly bright. From time to time, his fists curled and would then soon be released, as if he was holding back...


Zhaowu fiercely kicked the opponent's face, making him almost do a somersault as he flew back and fell on to the ground. 

The fall wasn't that hard, but the kick was powerful. Not only the boy's cheeks turned red and swollen, two of his teeth were also knocked out and some blood spilt out of his mouth...

After kicking his opponent, Zhaowu did not take advantage of the opponent's fall, but instead stood not far away. He looked at the opponent who fell to the ground with disdain, and said coldly: "Shen Ao, you are the one looking for this fight today! I'll be honest, I don't mind disposing of you, you dog! Pweh!" Zhaowu spat. 

Zhaowu then turned and walked towards Gu Shuyao and the girl.

But at this moment, a vague voice sounded behind him, "You, stop for me!"

The one called Shen Ao got up with great effort. His eyes were staring coldly at Zhaowu's figure, filled with strong resentment.

"What? Are you still not convinced?"

Zhaowu turned around, looking at Shen Ao while raising his brows and sneering.

Shen Ao spat out a wad of bloody saliva on the ground. He stretched out his hand and rubbed the side of his face on where the kick landed. He stared coldly at Zhaowu and threatened: "Very good! Ever since childhood, no one dared to humiliate me. You are the first one, you are awesome eh?! Motherf*cker, if I can't make you kneel and beg to me today, I will take your last name!"

"Uncle Hai, do it! Beat him to death!" Shen Ao ruthlessly said.

When the middle-aged man standing behind him heard his words, a ray of cold light flashed in his eyes.

If he wasn't waiting for Shen Ao's orders, he would have done so a long time ago.

And now that Shen Ao spoke, the middle-aged man suddenly moved. And his fist came towards Zhaowu, bringing forth fierce wind...

"Be careful!"

Gu Shuyao on the side was shocked when she saw this, and quickly exclaimed. The girl next to her also exclaimed.

Zhaowu was surprised when he saw the middle-aged man actually doing it. He didn't expect that the other party would be so shameless and actually ordered a senior to beat up a fellow junior!

Who would have thought that Shen Ao could not accept losing, and actually asked others to take action.

Zhaowu had to quickly raise his arms and defend himself hastily. 

And at the same time, the middle-aged man's fist arrived along with a strong and violent aura...


Zhaowu felt his arms shake and a terrifying force surged in, making his arms numb almost instantaneously. He almost lost consciousness.

Zhaowu staggered, and it took him more than a dozen steps back before he finally managed to stabilize himself. He almost got knocked down.


Gu Shuyao saw that Zhaowu was almost injured by the other party, and yelled. She immediately rushed forward without hesitation to help him.

However, the strength of the middle-aged man clearly far exceeded hers.

The middle-aged man simply swatted Gu Shuyao's palm. The tyrannical force of the man burst out, and it immediately knocked Gu Shuyao upside down as she flew and fell to the ground.

What's worse was that Gu Shuyao felt that her arm was almost broken...

"Yaoyao, how are you?"

Zhaowu shouted nervously. Then he stared at the middle-aged man while gritting his teeth. He clenched his fist despite the numbness. 

The other girl quickly ran to Gu Shuyao and helped her up.

Gu Shuyao's right arm felt like it was broken in half. Her brows were twisted tightly due to bursts of intense pain, making her suck in cold air.

She raised her head and looked at the middle-aged man, Gu Shuyao's eyes were extremely cold. Her face was frosty, like that of a thousand years old iceberg!

As Shen Ao watched this scene unfold, a sneer crept into his mouth, but his swollen cheeks caused him to feel pain. And this pain made him feel angry again.

He reached out and caressed his cheek and ordered fiercely: "Uncle Hai, continue to beat him! Keep it up until he kneels down like a dog and begs me for mercy!" 

The middle-aged man did not hesitate and immediately carried out his order.

Whoosh~ Wind brewed as the man's fist punched out again.

Zhaowu quickly dodged.

The middle-aged man was already a master at the Qi Gathering Stage. If it weren't for this, with Zhaowu's Marrow Refinement Stage physique, it would have been impossible for him to be numb from a punch.

His timely dodge allowed him to avoid the opponent's fierce blow, but a second punch soon followed.

Zhaowu was very aware of the strength gap between himself and the opponent, so he did not let himself be blinded by anger and rashly fought the opponent head on. He instead opted to constantly dodging.

His movement was very strange, and his body was as slippery as a loach, making it difficult for the middle-aged man to hit him.

This was a footwork technique from Zhaowu's family. It's very dexterous and weird, and it was not so easy for the other party to catch him.

However, he can't continue this any longer. Therefore, after using the footwork to bypass the middle-aged man's strong offensive and defensive areas, he immediately took advantage of the momentum and counter-attacked.

His fists had already gradually recovered from the numbness, and were now like a dragon and tiger. He fiercely counterattacked the opponent's lower back, ribs, and even underarms and other relatively weak defenses.

He has to say, the middle-aged man was a little surprised by Zhaowu's unexpected moves.

Zhaowu's dexterous movement made it difficult for him to hit Zhaowu, the timely and tricky counterattack prevented him from focusing all his energy on offense as he had to guard against it... This allowed Zhaowu to win some breathing time.

Gu Shuyao couldn't help but let out a sigh of relief when she saw Zhaowu temporarily holding down the opponent. But she also knows that this can only be delayed for a while, and not forever.

After all, the opponent's strength was too strong, and if there's a single flaw, the result will be a violent blow that Zhaowu cannot bear.

"Kexin, help me take the phone out of my right pocket."

Gu Shuyao said to the girl beside her.

She was completely unable to move her right arm right now, and it was not possible for her to take it out herself.


The girl named 'Kexin' quickly took out the phone and placed it in Gu Shuyao's left hand. After Gu Shuyao got the phone, she immediately dialed a number...

Lin Kexin stared at Zhaowu nervously with a worried expression on her face.
