Chapter 294- The Xiao Family’s Crisis Part 4
Madam Sheng Yue’s breathing grew ragged as she stared at the elderly figure standing in midair.
Power… there was still a disparity between their powers after all.
If she had Xiantian powers, would it be of any help in this situation? Because she wasn’t strong enough she couldn’t help in this battle between Xiantian experts.
Madam Sheng Yue clenched her fist, suppressing the unwillingness bubbling within her, just watching as the two experts fought.
A powerful blow struck Elder Xiao’s chest, forcing him to retreat a couple of steps. With a trail of blood trickling from the corner of his mouth, he raised his head to look at Nangong Zi Feng. His expression gradually turned gloomy.
“Hmph!” Nangong Zi Feng snorted coldly in disdain and slowly put down her numb palm. With arrogance flashing in her eyes, she mocked, “Old man, you are definitely not a match for me, a Mid Rank Xiantian expert! You have reached your limit. If you continue to use your powers, you will only hasten your death. Forcefully holding on by sheer will, how can you be my opponent?”
Elder Xiao didn’t reply, flashing toward Nangong Zi Feng once more to attack.
“This senior said that if you want to touch members of the Xiao family, you must walk over my corpse. I will not let you harm them so long as I live.”
“You’re overestimating your power!” Nangong Zi Feng moved, brandishing her sword in midair.
The air temperature slowly dropped.
Snow began to drift down from the sky, pure white snowflakes sparkling and translucent like the world’s most beautiful colors… Then, those gently floating snowflakes began to slowly gather around Nangong Zi Feng.
The crowd was currently experiencing an unprecedented cold spell, making them feel as though they were suddenly inside an icehouse.
“Old man, you’re at the end of your life anyway. Since you will simply suffer even if you continue to live, let me, Nangong Zi Feng, send you off”
Countless snowflakes condensed around Nangong Zi Feng, forming a snownado. Wherever the snownado moved the surrounding air froze. This cold pierced through bones and made Elder Xiao’s face crease with concentration as he cast a flame toward the approaching snownado.
The power of this snownado was much greater than anything before it…
“Everyone, quickly get on the ground!” Elder Xiao’s expression changed drastically as he hastily shouted at the crowd behind him.
Xiao Tian Yu and the others looked at the figure guarding them, with their hearts feeling like it had fallen to the bottom of a valley, leaving sorrow in its place…
As if he didn’t hear their shouts, Elder Xiao stood resolutely in front of the crowd. Countless streams of flames lit his elderly face, turning it completely red, yet his expression remained calm and collected.
He was willing to lay his life down for the Xiao family…
A loud explosion tore through the horizon.
Xiao Tian Yu quickly moved to protect Madam Sheng Yue in his embrace as he gazed at the scene near them. Upon looking, his eyes contracted. Something seemed to have struck his heart as his body started trembling violently.
Elder Xiao remained standing, firmly holding his ground in the midst of the snownado in the distance. When the wind blew, his grey robe fluttered. He just stood there silently, not moving a step…
He was forcefully withstanding the snownado, else it would annihilate the Xiao family.
In that moment, as Elder Xiao helped the Xiao family block this tyrannical attack, his elderly back looked powerful…
Old Man Xiao’s eyes contracted. His elderly figure trembled violently, with tears flowing from his eyes. He didn’t care about anything other than dashing toward his elder.
Yet, Elder Xiao raised his hand, suddenly stopping Old Man Xiao’s actions…
Coughing out a mouthful of blood, Elder Xiao’s body finally couldn’t hold on, kneeling on the ground. Mouthful after mouthful of blood was spat from his mouth, as though his blood were cheap and worthless. The sight made the crowd’s heart tighten…
