Everyone was stunned, especially those who hadn’t left. They stopped immediately, eager to see what Ye Xiwen wanted to do.
Is he courting death?
After all, in the eyes of everyone, Ye Xiwen was merely a Transcendent Realm First Level. His action for wanting a piece of the treasures equated to digging his own grave.
“Hehe, there is another one who is not afraid of death!” Cangnan Duo sneered. They might look barbaric and stubborn, but they were no fool. They were rather shrewd. Being a fool would not allow them to progress this far.
“It seems that you are courting death!” The middle-aged elder threw a sharp glare and instantly pounced on Ye Xiwen.
His figure flickered. A long spear appeared in his hand, piercing the vast sky, and approached Ye Xiwen.
Due to the high speed, the arm’s friction with the air made the arm seem burning, looking like a hot iron rod.
“Dang!” Ye Xiwen condensed a fiery saber aura in his hands and clashed with him.
The force directly set off an endless wave of air. The middle-aged elder took two steps directly, while Ye Xiwen remained motionless. Based on the physique alone, no one could contend with Ye Xiwen, a monster in human skin.
Everyone was a little surprised, especially the Old Freak Yin and others. Seeing this scene, they found it a little bit unbelievable. This Transcendent Realm First Level brat made a big talk. Initially, everyone else regarded him as seeking death. However, reality told the story otherwise.
He had the strength to back up his participation.
Scarlet Thunder Immortal looked at Ye Xiwen vaguely. She thought Ye Xiwen’s physical cultivation was not bad. He could contend against her, who hadn’t tried her best at the time, but now the situation had far exceeded her imagination.
But at this point, Ye Xiwen had shown enough strength. If these people didn’t want to face off indefinitely, they could only agree to Ye Xiwen to join in.
In particular, Old Freak Yin began to feel a little anxious. It didn’t take long before more people had joined in. If there were more competitors, his chances would slim down even further.
At this time, the others, who just stopped, had to take their leave. No matter whether Ye Xiwen had enough strength or not, it had little to do with them. The malicious gaze of the other people shrouded again. The Wang Family got slightly excited. Although they still hadn’t obtained Phoenix’s Flame Fruit, Ye Xiwen’s intervention was better than having the fruits taken by these people.
“Now there are five Phoenix’s Flame Fruits here, but we have six people. How do you want to divide it?” said Scarlet Thunder Immortal.
“It’s simple. I want two of them. Since my friends found these Phoenix’s Flame Fruit first, they have the right to have one. I will have one too. The remaining three of you can get exactly one each!” said Ye Xiwen lightly.
“Impossible!” Old Freak Yin retorted first. He had no opinion, with Cangnan Duo and Scarlet Thunder Gang having a share each. However, he could not stand it for only having one. He felt he was the one who discovered Phoenix’s Flame Fruit first.
As for those people in the Wang family, he had already ignored their existence. He was more legitimate to be the first who discovered the fruit, at least among these people.
As for Ye Xiwen’s statement that he would leave one to everyone in the Wang family, he didn’t believe this explanation. In his opinion, Ye Xiwen was going to have two of the fruits. How could he accept it?
“Tsk tsk, brat. You’re small in size, which doesn’t fit your big appetite!” Cangnan Duo sneered, “Us brothers need at least two of the fruits. You all will distribute the rest!”
“No, we need at least two fruits for the Scarlet Thunder Gang!” The middle-aged elder said, seemingly did not want to be outdone.
There were four forces and six people; all of which insisted on having two pieces of the share. This was a huge problem since no one was willing to compromise.
“Since we can’t reach a mutual agreement, it rests on our capabilities. Keep what you can grab!” said Ye Xiwen.
As soon as Ye Xiwen stopped his sentence, Old Freak Yin moved instantly. A figure flickered continually towards the Phoenix’s Flame Fruit Tree. Old Freak Yin extended his hand, summoning a black mist, taking five Phoenix’s Flame Fruit Roll away. He left no room for discussions.
He might even offend Scarlet Thunder Gang, but the prize of five Phoenix’s Flame Fruits sufficed for that.
“Damn it, leave those Phoenix’s Flame Fruit!” Cangnan Duo reacted hastily. He caught up to Old Freak Yin in an instant. A massive hammer and a saber fell towards Old Freak Yin.
The horrible energy set off an endless heatwave.
“Damn it!” Old Freak Yin didn’t dare to sustain the heavy blow from these two men. Otherwise, he might be killed on the spot.
“Younger brother, go and put away the Phoenix’s Flame Fruit. I’ll support you!” Cangnan Duo’s leader held his Mountain Splitting Saber. He stared at the crowd with cold eyes.
“En!” Cangnan Duo’s younger brother instantly rushed towards the Phoenix’s Flame Fruit Tree, trying to take away all the Phoenix’s Flame Fruit.
Almost none of these people were satisfied with getting only one or two. They all wanted to take them all away.
“Damn it, stop him!” Scarlet Thunder Immortal cursed. The middle-aged elder next to her rushed out, confronting Cangnan Duo’s leader directly. A long spear in the elder’s hands as they both clashed.
Scarlet Thunder Immortal morphed a giant hand out of thin air in the sky. It immediately bombarded Cangnan Duo’s younger brother.
“Get off me!” Cangnan Duo’s younger brother swung out his hammer immediately. The impact was akin to a meteorite crash. The hammer collided with the giant hand fiercely.
After setting off countless turbulences in the sky and successfully stopping Scarlet Thunder Immortal, Cangnan Duo’s younger brother rushed directly to the Phoenix’s Flame Fruit Tree not far away. He was only a few steps away; he would never give up.
“You have to ask me before taking it!” At this time, Old Freak Yin snorted. He condensed a giant ghost claw. It grabbed towards Cangnan Duo’s younger brother at the same time as Scarlet Thunder Immortal.
It was not that he wanted to cooperate with Scarlet Thunder Immortal, but whoever almost obtained the fruit would face a joint attack by these people.
“Damn you, old freak. Don’t get in the way!” The Cangnan Duo’s younger brother yelled. He sped up with his movement technique and grabbed towards the Phoenix’s Flame Fruit Tree.
*Clang!* A deafening clang. A massive sword composed of qi formed in the air, continuously rotating in the sky. Countless spiritual energy condensed, making it bigger and bigger. When Cangnan Duo’s second brother grabbed towards the Phoenix’s Flame Fruit Tree, a long sword fell all of a sudden.
“Puff!” The sword aura cut down the left arm of Cangnan Duo’s younger brother on the spot. The body, superior to metal, appeared too ordinary in front of this terrifying sword aura. It was like cutting through tofu, as the left arm got mutilated.
“Ah!” Cangnan Duo’s younger brother screamed in agony. He quickly retreated, only to watch his left arm mangled into minced meats in the sword aura.
“Who!” Cangnan Duo’s younger brother was frightened. The speed of this sword aura was too fast, almost formed on the spot. If his speed were a little slower, he would be cut in half by that sword aura.
At this time, the weakness of his slow speed was utterly exposed. It was not that he was too slow, but that the attack was too fast, making him appear sluggish. Most importantly, he had never seen moves in such speed yet impactful power. Generally speaking, moves at great speed would significantly reduce the power, and the powerful moves would naturally be slower.
Of course, the logic did not go with a slower speed would increase the power output. He who had cultivated his power to the extreme had rarely encountered such an opponent who had suppressed him in all aspects.
A cyan figure dashed directly into the crowd. It was Ye Xiwen who made a move.
“Damn you, brat!” The Cangnan Duo’s younger brother was depressed and wanted to vomit blood. He thought that he would be able to take Phoenix’s Flame Fruit. By that time, as long as he could escape with his brother, these Phoenix’s Flame Fruits would be theirs. Unexpectedly, Ye Xiwen intervened at this moment, directly making him fall short. His entire arm was cut off, making him a disabled person.
Even in the Transcendent Realm, it was challenging to regrow a severed arm. After all, human clans were not like Demon Clan.
Accompanied by a roar, the hammer in his right hand bombarded Ye Xiwen. Ye Xiwen’s speed was already fast. However, the attack had approached Ye Xiwen. It moved almost instantaneously and appeared in front of Ye Xiwen.
Facing the hammer that fell toward him, Ye Xiwen squeezed his five fingers into a fist and directly punched upward. The punch was like a star, facing the hammer that fell like a meteor.
Unparalleled shockwaves swept out. A small mushroom cloud rose, setting off an endless heatwave. Amidst the dust and debris flying in the sky, the fanatical Cangnan Duo’s younger brother exhausted all his strength and yet couldn’t hurt Ye Xiwen even a slight.
“Boom!” With a loud crash, the hammer flew out with a terrifying force on the spot. It spun in the sky and finally crashed on a mountain peak, directly blasting it into a flatland. One could imagine the power of this hammer, but even so, it could not hurt Ye Xiwen.
That Cangnan Duo’s younger brother finally had fear crept upon him. His palm was severely mutilated. Since the hammer flew in the distance, it was evident Ye Xiwen had a far superior strength than him.
But in the next second, he hardly had time to think about it. A sword light flashed with a splendid bud of blood bloomed on his neck. Blood spurted out on the spot.
His body quickly became cold, with his vitality losing in every second.
A blood light flashed out of Ye Xiwen’s body. He retrieved the five Phoenix’s Flame Fruits instantly.
