Chapter 220 – The mighty Bi Fan
“So many powerful people have gathered here. Is there some treasure that’s about to appear?” Jing Feng asked.
“No matter how powerful these people are, if there is some treasure involved, entering the battle is worth a shot.” Mo Nan stated plainly.
Wang Zhong said: “These people are just too powerful for us. It wouldn’t be a good idea to meddle in the fight right now. Let’s save our energy for later.”
Bi Fan and his team observed the fight carefully. They certainly didn’t want to put themselves in danger, and hence were looking for the teams to get smaller with time.
Over a hundred indomitably powerful people were fighting each other in the plains. If any one of them entered the field to fight at this point, it would be impossible for them to withdraw.
Since a very intense fight was going on, there was a great possibility of several other people hiding in the vicinity of the plains, waiting for an apt opportunity to strike.
Such being the case, Bi Fan and his companions decided to wait and watch for the time being.
Although it was an excellent opportunity to enhance their combat experience, it was not worth risking their lives.
Zi Wei and Hong Yan had been staring at the largest groups without blinking even for once, their eyes clearly reflecting the concerns of their hearts.
After realising that they were from rival schools, Zi Wei and Hong Yan had stopped talking to each other; this had affected Hong Yan the most. Since she liked Zi Wei, it was heart-breaking for her to know that Zi Wei was actually her enemy.
Bi Fan and the other boys were sensitive enough not to make fun of either of the girls and wanted to console them, but didn’t know what to say to them.
At this time, the boys couldn’t let Hong Yan know that she was a girl; else Hong Yan would despise her even more.
Although Hong Yan hadn’t been in the group for a long time, her innocence had made Bi Fan accept her as his friend. But since he had met Zi Wei before he met Hong Yan, Bi Fan thought it better to keep his mouth shut and not expose Zi Wei’s secret.
All the boys could only sigh pitifully whenever they looked at Hong Yan.
The Hong School and the Bai Sheng palace were the two most influential schools of Tong Tian city. They naturally wanted to subdue each other, and obviously bore an enmity that sprouted from their rivalry.
Bi Fan and the other boys were simply helpless when it came to the Zi Wei and Hong Yan.
It was a fierce fight; martial artists were fighting with all their might and were killing as many enemies as they could. Two ‘Gold Dan’ layered men, one from the Hong School and one from the Bai Sheng palace respectively, had turned out to be the fiercest fighters and had killed several people on the battlefield by now.
They were recklessly killing the other people and had gotten so good at it by now that all traces of emotion had been vanquished from their eyes.
Bi Fan carefully observed these two men and realised that these men had a lot of valuable articles with them, and moreover, could sense that he would learn a lot by just fighting against them.
“These men are really so powerful! I wonder when we would attain such power…..” Ji Ying Lan said enviously.
Jing Feng said with a smile: “Brother Ji Ying Lan, we all are so young. These men are around fifty years old. When we reach that age, we all would’ve certainly attained similar or higher levels.”
“Yes, our youth is our capital, and our group has some very talented people like Bi Fan, Hong Yan and Zi Wei. In fact, Hong Yan and Zi Wei are the most talented of us all. In spite of being younger than us, these two have greater strength than any of us.” Wang Zhong said.
Hearing this, Zi Wei and Hong Yan didn’t say anything and kept pretending to focus on the fight.
As for Bi Fan, since there was such a gruesome fight going on, he had no time to indulge in talks and was completely lost in observing the other people’s martial skills.
Those martial artists of ‘Gold Dan’ layer were not only formidably powerful; they had also comprehended some unique martial skills, which Bi Fan was busy grasping.
While Bi Fan didn’t care to notice his surroundings and Jing Feng and the others were busy talking among themselves, a group of people attacked them all of a sudden.
“Kill….!” These people had discovered that Bi Fan and his team hiding and waiting for an opportunity, and hence they launched a sneak attack on them.
Bi Fan was so lost in watching the fight that he didn’t realise he was under attack.
Jing Feng and the others immediately rushed forward to counter the attack launched by that group of people, and were actually happy that they finally got someone to fight with.
Jing Feng, Mo Nan, Ji Ying Lan, Wang Zhong, Blue Dragon – the five boys rushed to attack while Zi Wei and Hong Yan were unable to detect the attack just like Bi Fan; the Chimera stayed to Bi Fan’s side to protect him.
The opposite group had eight people and weren’t weak either.
After exchanging several blows, Jing Feng was sure that he had bumped into a strong opponent.
“Brother Bi Fan, Hong Yan, Zi Wei, come fast! The enemies are too powerful!” Jing Feng shouted.
They had to eliminate these people quickly; else they would draw several other people to the place where Bi Fan and his team had been hiding.
Although it was difficult but the only way to survive was to overpower these people.
Zi Wei and Hong Yan were stunned and couldn’t think of what to do, but Bi Fan quickly launched ‘The Immortal Finger’ attack towards the attackers as soon as he noticed them.
Since this technique was undetectable, several people were caught off their guards and were hit.
Bi Fan used immortal finger attack because he had observed that there were several strong people hiding in the vicinity. The terrifying power of this attack would definitely deter these people and scare them.
Bi Fan was able to kill three people instantly. This scared the other people who had been secretly watching them so much that they immediately ran away and didn’t dare to turn back, while their five remaining opponents were left shaking with fear. Bi Fan decided against attacking them since he wanted his friends to get some practice as well.
The remaining five people were quickly got ridden of by Jing Feng, Mo Nan and the others. Even cleaning up the field didn’t take them too long.
After killing those three people, Bi Fan resumed watching the main battle.
Zi Wei and Hong Yan stared at Bi Fan with their eyes wide open, simply unable to believe their eyes. Both of them had higher strength levels, but still could never do what Bi Fan had just demonstrated.
“Mister Bi Fan, what martial skill did you just display?” Zi Wei couldn’t help asking.
Unfortunately for her, Bi Fan was busy watching the battle and had no time to respond.
Jing Feng answered: “That was Brother Bi Fan’s special skill, called ‘The Immortal Finger’. It’s very powerful.”
“The Immortal Finger? I have never heard of it before.” Zi Wei was surprised.
“Like I said, it’s Brother Bi Fan’s special skill. He received it during one of its adventures; therefore we don’t know anything about its origin.” Jing Feng replied.
Jing Feng had seen Bi Fan use this skill earlier and was aware of the fact that Bi Fan had no intentions of keeping this skill a secret from Zi Wei and Hong Yan either; else he wouldn’t have displayed it in front of them.
Zi Wei and Hong Yan were quite surprised and couldn’t figure out from where Bi Fan actually learnt this skill.
As the battle became more and more intense, more and more people started joining it.
The fight between the people of Hong School and Bai Sheng palace was growing even more gruesome since several people had already died on the both sides.
Zi Wei and Hong Yan grew more anxious with each passing moment. They wanted to join the fight and help the people of their respective schools, but hesitated and stayed where they were.
They were not powerful enough to help in a battle of such a large scale.
Suddenly, a strange red light flashed in the sky above the plains.
“The treasure is about to appear!”
“Quick! The treasure will appear over there.”
“That visual was so magnificent, I’m pretty sure that the treasure won’t a petty one; it may actually be completely intact Spirit Weapon.”
“A completely intact Spirit Grade Weapon!”
Who wouldn’t be tempted to own a complete spiritual utensil? After all, it was so rare, and was extremely high-priced in the market. Even if someone didn’t use it for themselves, they could simply auction it. They would be able to earn millions of spars in exchange for such a weapon!
The flashes of red light grew more frequent. By this time, almost all the people had become aware of the fact that the treasure was about to appear and hence several people had hurriedly ran towards the direction of the light.
The people who had been fighting in plains had stopped fighting at this time, while the people who had been hiding near the plains continued hide in wait for the treasure to appear as they knew there would be immense bloodshed soon after the treasure appears.
The people from Hong School and Bai Sheng palace had also stopped fighting and were constantly exchanging some meaningful glances, as if they were on mutual alert against each other.
Seeing that the people of Hong School and Bai Sheng palace had stop fighting made Zi Wei and Hong Yan relax a bit.
“I don’t know what treasure is going to appear here, but I’m sure that whatever it is, it’s far more powerful than ‘The stick of the nine thundering dragons’. However, since there are so many powerful people already competing for the treasure, we might not be able to seize it.” Bi Fan said.
Blue Dragon said: “I think it’s the transportation token. Otherwise, why would such a huge crowd gather here?”
“No matter what it is, we all should be prepared to start fighting anytime.” Jing Feng was full of fighting spirit.
Bi Fan thought for some time and said: “Be prepared to fight, but keep your own safety as the first priority.”
Since there was some treasure about to appear, it was impossible for Bi Fan to stop his companions.
There were several powerful people already fighting for the treasure so the stakes were high, and this made Bi Fan a bit uneasy. There were more than twenty people of the ‘emerging from the womb’ layer in this contest, which meant Bi Fan and his team would have to fight them too in order to seize the treasure. Emerging victorious under these circumstances seemed like a far-fetched dream.
“Brother Bi Fan, rest assured. Although the treasure is important for us, we will not compromise with our safety in any case.” Jing Feng smiled.
The flashes of the red light were getting more and more frequent. The treasure was surely about to appear.
“Everyone, be prepared to attack!” Bi Fan commanded.
