#23 – Naga’S Fear
The cultivators who witnessed the others fainting couldn’t help but have a bad feeling facing the seven headed snake in front of them. The aura itself can cause everyone under the eighth stage of the Elementary Realm to faint, so these cultivators cannot help imagine its overall power because it should definitely be stronger instantly everyone felt like backing out of this test and just wait for the next test to commence.
They were even some cultivators who understood the intention of the academy, obviously they wanted as many as people to fail and even faint so that they will only have less people taking the next test and some cultivators even decided that there is no chance for anyone else to get a place at the academy now and just wasting their time.
However, some cultivators were up for the challenge and eventually a cultivator at the tenth stage of the elementary realm stepped up to take the challenge.
The cultivator unsheathed his sword and took a stance in front of the seven-headed snake demon. Naga ignored his actions as if he was looking at him in disdain, the cultivator eventually caught sight of how the beast looked at him and he couldn’t take this humiliation so he waved his sword and rays of tint red light could be seen on the sword.
“Look its the sword heart”
“No is not, is half- sword heart as it only a tint of red light could be seen on the sword”
“It looks like the snake is going to be in trouble now!”
Regardless of the discussions amongst the cultivators everyone was surprised to see the half-sword heart because it will take years of practice to reach that level even to achieve Sword Will will take a good year or so, one can tell from seeing the half sword-heart that the cultivator should be a genius even though he can’t be compared to Fan Juechan, he should have enough aptitude to at least get into this academy because even if he fails this test there is a very high chance for him to get through with the next test.
The cultivator slashed his sword, the ray of red light was flying towards the snake but all the snake did was whack its tail and the sword ray instantly dispersed but the tail carried on flying towards the cultivator and the cultivator was sent flying, hitting a wall spurting blood.
The surrounding cultivators who witnessed this scene went pale in fright, they have never imagined this snake beast to be this powerful, it only took one hit just one hit for the sword-heart to disperse and even inflict heavy damage on the cultivator.
The remaining cultivators who initially wanted to go for a challenge now had second thoughts even with a sword-heart that cultivator couldn’t manage to inflict a single damage on the beast so how can they manage to go against this beast, they will be just going to their own deaths.
“Brats you have wasted my time… If you guys are this scared then why the fuck did you even come to this test!” Light Void said in a disdain tone!
The cultivators were feeling depressed by the tone of that person who was talking to them, but yet they couldn’t utter a word, they have already heard stories about this tutor and that he gives no shit about anyone but regardless everyone couldn’t help but think to themselves.
‘You sure that is a beast which is at the tenth level of the elementary realm? It defeated a cultivator at the same stage in a single move! So what can we do? Do you want us to throw our life away ?’
“Hmph! I was bloody enjoying my sleep! If it wasn’t for you brats! I would have continued that nice dream I had” Light Void scolded again being frustrated.
“I would like to take this challenge” a voice was heard amongst the cultivators everyone moved to check who it was, it was none other than Yama.
“What fifth stage of the elementary realm! hahaha is this kid serious? does he have a death wish or something?”
“Wait! How has he not fainted while all the others under the eighth stage have fainted?”
“It’s probably because he can handle the pressure well, he would have got a good score at the steps of death!”
“Regardless he is only a fifth stage elementary realm how can he challenge that demon? Did he not see a tenth stage with sword-heart utterly defeated in one move?”
“Maybe he has a death wish but hahaha is funny! He is going to make fun of himself”
As everyone was making all kinds of remarks about Yama, Light Void was sizing him up and down, he was amused to see this kid able to stand the pressure of Naga.
“BRAT! Do you have a death wish or something? Go home to your parents!” Light Void said looking at Yama even though he praised Yama in his heart for not showing any fear while facing this demon beast, Light Void knew that he will be no match for the beast so it was better to tell him to stop.
“I will have to give it a try! To be honest I don’t feel like doing the third test, so I want to confirm that if I do pass this test, I will definitely be accepted right?” Yama asked calmly.
“Listen you arrogant kid! Do you really think you can tame that demon?” Light Void asked coldly, he was telling him earlier to leave for his own good, to think that his good intentions will be ignored got him frustrated.
“If I can tame it then I pass right?” Yama asked again.
“You…! Fine Fine! If you can tame it yes you will pass” Light Void couldn’t handle this kid because the kid in front of him was speaking as he was utterly confident that he has passed already.
Back at the academy.
“Who is this kid? Doesn’t he know the difference between heaven and earth!” Hui Ran exclaimed out loud, he already had a bad impression on him at this point, he was expecting everyone to back out of this test after witnessing the might of the demon beast so that they can move to the last test quickly and get this day over and done with but he never expected a little brat to go up for the challenge.
Ying Yue on the hand witnessed this scene with a excited smile on her face.
‘Finally he made a move! I was worried he wouldn’t care about it, he is definitely going to pass teach this guys a lesson, from what I know he has never done anything without assurance’
Ying Yue’s brother who was beside her instantly knew who that person Ying Yue was talking about before after seeing the sparkling eyes of his sister, has never imagined a brat with the fifth stage of Elementary realm will catch his sisters eyes.
At the trial grounds…
“He is actually going to take the challenge ? What!? He is a lunatic! He is definitely going to die!”
“I think he lost his mind, who would want to take the challenge after witnessing what happened to the tenth stage elementary realm cultivator!”
“But look at how confident this kid looks! Maybe he has an ace up his sleeve!”
“He is nothing but a joke!”
While all the cultivators where making bad remarks about Yama, Yama quietly walked near the seven-headed demon beast, he arrived in front of the demon beast looking at it face to face showing no fear what so ever.
The beast looked at Yama in disdain, a fifth stage cultivator at the elementary realm was showing of too much in front of him, even an expert at the spirit realm will find a hard time taming him so the demon beast couldn’t take it anymore with a hiss sound it brought it’s tail at fast speed to whack Yama away as same as what it done to the cultivator at the tenth stage of the elementary realm.
Nearly all the cultivators who witnessed this scene couldn’t help but close their eyes, they thought that’s Yama’s life over, a tenth stage cultivator was sent flying spurting blood there is no way a fifth stage cultivator will survive this!
“What????!? What happened!?” One of the cultivator amongst the crowd exclaimed out loud, all the cultivators turned to see what happened and they were mind boggled by what they were witnessing because the tail which everyone expected to hit Yama stopped half-way and was slowly retracting.
The seven-headed snake then bowed all its head to the floor as if it was prostrating towards him, Everyone was shocked the turn of events! Why did the beast start prostrating ? Why does it look as if it has seen a ghost and scared!
‘Weren’t you just looking at him in disdain? Why are you cowering so much for now?”
The cultivators couldn’t understand what in the world was going on. Light Void beside was thoroughly shocked, because even without his senseless magic the beast was scared, it was the same scene, it was being scared witless as if it has seen a ghost and it was exactly like the other beasts he has encountered putting them out of their misery but the beast in front of him was prostrating towards the kid, it was showings its submission!
The beast has never ever submitted towards him, it has always listened to his words because of the senseless magic he has had, but he has never ever witness this beast ever submit to anyone, and this time it was submitting to a brat with a fifth stage elementary realm.
How could these people know what the demon beast witnessed, remembering of the scene still has the demon beast in fright because as he was about to hit Yama, Yama’s whole figure turned and an illusion appeared in front of Naga, he can see countless amount of demons prostrating in front of Yama, even powerful demon beasts such as dragons were lying on the floor dead, while he was walking calmly on top of each of the dead beasts looking like a hungry demon that was about to take on the next demon.
All dragons were flying in frenzy not even that, Naga could even see one member of his race the strongest nine headed snake king begging for forgiveness in front of Yama, after seeings this illusion Naga lost all his senses as fear he has never felt built up within him, all he could do now was beg for forgiveness so he ended up prostrating in front of Yama, even the king of his snake race could not stand up against this kid, how can he do it wouldn’t he just be sending his life to death, the seven headed snake demon beast now fully understand why the other demon beasts were cowering in fear, it was none other than because of this kid in front of him.
Yama obviously understood why the demon beast is prostrating on the floor in front of him, this was none other than because the Judgement Book suddenly summoned itself and showed the illusions of his past achievements in Hell to Naga, it showed the demon beast just what sort of a existence it was messing with.
