Chapter 299: Liu Pingsheng
“Guangling Academy, Liu Pingsheng.”
The white-haired youth stared at Zhou Donghuang with a rather fiery look. Afterwards, without any prior provocation by Zhou Donghuang, a strong wave of essential core was sent out directly towards Zhou Donghuang.
Zhou Donghuang had not thought that the other party would attack him without any provocation, and his face darkened instantly.
However, once he realized the power that the other party was controlling, a look of inspiration flashed suitably in his eyes, and he immediately utilized his White Tiger Dharma Power. The ten-meter-tall White Tiger Dharma Power was thus shown for the first time.
This was the first time Zhou Donghuang had fought since his White Tiger Dharma Power had crossed over to the ultimate Dharma stage.
The White Tiger Dharma Power growled and, with one outstretched paw, it directly toppled the white-haired youth’s essential core as if he was bringing the weight of the world. The entire process was as if destruction had been rained down.
“You actually managed to cross over?”
Liu Pingsheng’s tone was full of surprise and shock, and his gaze became even more fiery and intense. At the same time, he delivered yet another strike, and a wave of thicker essential core shot out directly towards the White Tiger Dharma Power.
Afterwards, the essential core suddenly became a taut string mid-air as it was locked tight by the White Tiger Dharma Power.
Once the essential core was bounded into a string, it quickly turned itself around the White Tiger Dharma Power in a perfect noose, as if it were about to choke the White Tiger Dharma Power to death.
At this moment, with Zhou Donghuang’s Divine Will, the White Tiger Dharma Power morphed into a beam of light like a shooting star in the night sky, and within an instant, it managed to successfully escape the noose that was Liu Pingsheng’s essential core.
“It really is Dharma Power Control!”
A surprised voice rang out belonging to Liu Pingsheng. At the same time, he also released the essential core that he had summoned, and the string that was Liu Pingsheng’s essential core disappeared without a trace as if it had never existed.
Seeing as the other party had taken a step back, Zhou Donghuang used his Divine Will to retract his White Tiger Dharma Power as well.
At the same time, he furrowed his brows and looked somewhat annoyedly at the other party. “If you are here to invite me to join the Guangling Academy, I’m afraid you’ve made a wasted trip.
“As for the Sky Sun fruits, I have already consumed them all. If not, I would not have entered the ultimate Dharma stage so easily within such a short period of time.”
With the way the other party had attacked just now, although essential core had been suppressed, with Zhou Donghuang’s experience, it was not difficult for him to tell that this Liu Pingsheng was a late Divine Transformation adept!
If not, he would not even bother to explain his circumstance to him.
With the training stage of the person before him alone, if he really wanted to kill Zhou Donghuang, even the strongest mid Divine Transformation adept of the Lightning Sword Sect, an elder, would not be able to save him.
After hearing Zhou Donghuang’s words, Liu Pingsheng’s facial expression did not change. “I am not here to ask you to join the Guangling Academy. I am also not here to ask you for the Sky Sun fruit.”
Liu Pingsheng’s words came as a surprise to Zhou Donghuang. If he was not here to invite him to the Guangling Academy and was also not here for the Sky Sun fruit, what was this Divine Transformation adept of the Guangling Academy here for?
Just as Zhou Donghuang was frozen with confusion, an urgent sound that seemed somewhat distant could be heard as a figure materialized from afar. Within an instant, this figure had already arrived at Zhou Donghuang’s living quarters. Upon realizing that Zhou Donghuang was fine, he sighed a breath of relief.
This was no ordinary person. Instead, he was the Autumn Valley Head, He Jin.
Seeing as He Jin had appeared before Zhou Donghuang and was taking on a stance of protection, Liu Pingsheng spoke with a rather surprised tone. “Young man, you actually managed to enter the Divine Transformation stage so quickly?”
Upon hearing Liu Pingsheng’s words, Zhou Donghuang could confirm that Liu Pingsheng’s status was higher than He Jin’s.
Of course, he was not surprised as he had guessed this long ago.
After all, this fellow, Liu Pingsheng, was a late Divine Transformation adept after all. He was also a member of the Guangling Academy and was definitely not young either.
Seeing as the other party had recognized him and even called him “young man,” He Jin first froze before giving the former a searching look. Although he felt as if he had met this man before in the past, he could not remember exactly when or where.
Liu Pingsheng replied casually, “When you were young, you visited the Guangling Academy to find core drugs with your senior and we met once.”
Once Liu Pingsheng had spoken, He Jin’s childhood memories instantly surfaced very clearly in his mind, and he suddenly recalled why this man was so familiar. “You… you are… Senior Liu Pingsheng!?”
Seeing this, He Jin immediately recalled why he had found this man before him to be so familiar.
The truth was that when he was young, he had met him before.
At that time, this man had looked how he looked now.
It was unexpected that although He JIn had changed much since young, this other party had had no physical changes at all, and he still looked as young and youthful.
“I’m surprised that you remember me.”
Liu Pingsheng smiled lightly. “I heard that you are now the Autumn Valley Head? You have come a long way since the last time I met you when you were still young…! Zhou Donghuang is a disciple of your Autumn Valley?”
Once he had spoken, Liu Pingsheng’s gaze returned back to Zhou Donghuang, and the intensity in his gaze returned.
After recognizing the identity of Liu Pingsheng, He Jin’s attitude and demeanor became much more courteous. At the same time, he opened his mouth to do an introduction for Zhou Donghuang. “Donghuang, this is the Honorary Dean of the Guangling Academy, Honorary Dean Liu Pingsheng.”
Once he had spoken, he added on for elaboration, “Honorary Dean Liu Pingsheng has an admirably high status that is untraversed among the Guangliang Academy, and he is ingenious and clever… Even the Dean of the Guangling Academy is extremely courteous to him and views him not just as a mentor but also as a fatherly figure.”
With a few sentences, He Jin managed to explain Liu Pingsheng’s background to Zhou Donghuang.
At the same time, Zhou Donghuang’s heart jolted slightly. He had not expected the other party’s status to be so high. One could even say that Liu Pingsheng was at the peak of the Hengliu galaxy.
Furthemore, the Dean of the Guangling Academy even saw him as a mentor and as a fatherly figure?
According to what he knew, the Dean of the Guangling Academy was already considered high ranking among the leaders of the Hengliu galaxy…
This seemingly young, white-haired “youth” was viewed as a mentor and a fatherly figure by the Dean of the Guangling Academy. Didn’t this mean he was ranked even higher?
At the same time, another urgent voice could be heard from the skies of the Autumn Valley, and two figures quickly flew into the Autumn Valley to Zhou Donghuang’s residence.
One was the Lightning Sword Sect Leader, Yu Yucheng.
The other person was an old man with white hair and white eyebrows. Although he looked to be elderly, he had eyes that shone brightly and spirit that only someone young could have.
At this moment, Yu Yucheng was following behind the old man.
Seeing the old man, He Jin immediately greeted him courteously as he acknowledged the Lightning Sword Sect Leader, Yu Yucheng, at the same time.
Zhou Donghuang’s gaze also landed on this old man, and he could vaguely guess this old man’s identity… This old man was most likely the mid Divine Transformation adept of the Lightning Sword Sect, who was their strongest member.
“Who are you? Why have you trespassed into my Lightning Sword Sect?”
As Liu Pingsheng’s back was facing the two figures who had arrived, be it Yu Yucheng or the old man in front of him, both could not see his full features, and they were both glaring at him in a hostile manner.
He Jin reacted to Yu Yucheng’s words by shooting him a warning glance. Before Yu Yucheng could react to this, Liu Pingsheng opened his mouth and spoke with a neutral tone. “Before, when Yu Cang was still around, he did not even dare to question my motives… Yu Cang has a good successor indeed!”
Yu Cang was the previous Lightning Sword Sect Leader, and he had been Yu Yucheng’s senior.
Yu Yucheng was actually an orphan that Yu Cang had brought back from his travels. Afterwards, Yu Cang had sworn in Yu Yucheng as a disciple of the sect, and he became Yu Cang’s direct disciple.
Many years ago, Yu Cang had left the Hengliu galaxy to work towards reaching the Separating Divinity stage.
Now, hearing someone call out the name of his beloved senior as well as making the personal comment that his senior had previously not dared to question him, Yu Yucheng’s facial expression became grave. When he spoke again, it was with a much more cautious tone. “Who… who are you?”
Following this, under the watchful gaze of Yu Yucheng and the old man before him, Liu Pingsheng slowly turned around.
Upon seeing Liu Pingsheng’s features, both Yu Yucheng and the old man before him’s eyes widened dramatically, and they froze on the spot as if they had been electrocuted.
An instant later, the old man first regained his composure, and he bowed to greet Liu Pingsheng courteously. “I am Lan Gui, senior.”
After the old man had spoken, this jolted Yu Yucheng to his senses, and he bowed in greeting to Liu Pingsheng as well. “I am Yu Yucheng, Senior Liu Pingsheng!”
Who was Liu Pingsheng?
As the Honorary Dean of the Guangling Academy and as a late Divine Transformation adept, he was effectively the most senior in rank among the elites of the Hengliu galaxy.
Even the Dean of the Guangliang Academy would call him “teacher” when he met Liu Pingsheng.
Yu Yucheng had never expected that the trespasser who had entered the Lightning Sword Sect would be this man standing before him. At the same time, he was nervous from his blunder from before he had recognized this man. He hoped that Liu Pingsheng would not be petty about it and forgive his rudeness. If not, even if the other party chose to slap him to death, even the Alliance would not be able to save him from it as well.
The Alliance could in fact go against the two Transcendental Forces of the Hengliu galaxy.
However, that did not really apply when it came to this senior.
This matter was enough to cause chaos within the entire Guangling Academy, and the Alliance could only be bystanders.
And that was only considering the Guangling Academy alone.
It was rumored that the current Emperor Qi of the Qi Dynasty admired Liu Pingsheng as well.
Other than the fact that the Hengliu galaxy did not have any ultimate Divine Transformation adept yet, even any who surfaced would not have the same influence, power and status within the Hengliu galaxy as this man even if he was only a late Divine Transformation adept.
Furthermore, it was rumored that this late Divine Transformation adept had previously killed an ultimate Divine Transformation adept who had traveled to the Hengliu galaxy from a different galaxy to find trouble with the Qi Dynasty and get revenge. It meant that his powers were not weaker than that of an ultimate Divine Transformation adept… Furthermore, the admiration that the two leaders of the two Transcendental Forces had for Liu Pingsheng meant that his influence and control were the highest among the entire Hengliu galaxy!
“Why is this senior here at our Lightning Sword Sect?
“Furthermore, he came here for Zhou Donghuang.
“Why exactly is he here?”
At this moment, Yu Yucheng had too many questions due to his state of confusion.
