In the basement of the bamboo forest, everyone was confused as they heard what the Old Ancestor said.
How to use this treasure book to kill the mysterious man?
Ling Xiuqi asked. “Old Ancestor, what do you mean?”
The Old Ancestor snorted and said, “Humph. Although the treasure book is true, it is equivalent to waste for the owner cannot cultivate it. However, being able to perceive the locations of Heaven Treasures and Earth Treasures is enough to cover its disadvantages. If we secretly leak the news of John Doe possessing the treasure book which can locate Heaven Treasures and Earth Treasures, do you think whether it will cause anyone with a higher strength to crave for it?”
“By then…” Before the Old Ancestor had finished speaking, all the people’s eyes lit up.
In particular, Ling Tianxiao, who had been stripped of his kung fu, suddenly raised his head. There was a burst of madness in his gloomy eyes.
His complexion was even more ferocious.
Ling Tianxiao roared, “Kill him, kill him…”
Ling Xiuqi hurried forward to comfort him.
The Old Ancestor took a glance at Ling Tianxiao with pity, saying, “Tianxiao, you can rest assured that I’ll definitely find a way to cure you. I’ll help you with revenge!”
Ling Xiuqi raised his fist and said angrily, “Yes, he dared to mess with our Ling Family. We’ll make him suffer in Wulin. He won’t live in the martial arts world any longer.”
Everyone nodded grimly.
However, at this moment, a familiar voice suddenly sounded. “Such a great plan!”
As they heard the voice, all the people in the Ling Family were shocked and their faces fell.
That voice came from the outside.
All of a sudden, everyone turned their heads and stared at the entrance to the basement.
“Boom!” The sound of the explosion was heard.
At the entrance of the basement, the door made of steel burst into pieces in an instant.
A figure flew in through the entrance.
Landing in the basement, he stopped in front of the people of the Ling Family.
The man was none other than Fang Qiu.
At this moment, everyone in the Ling Family was dumbfounded.
When he saw Fang Qiu, Ling Xiuqi’s face turned pale instantly.
He knew that the Ling Family was done.
The Ling Family would be completely destroyed in his hands.
Next to him, the Old Ancestor’s face was also extremely grim. He watched Fang Qiu leave with his own eyes. And after Fang Qiu left, he also used his perception to make sure that Fang Qiu had left the area where he could sense him. Only then did he take all the people to the basement.
He didn’t expect that Fang Qiu would come back.
The entire Ling Family was caught off guard by Fang Qiu’s return.
Among them, the person whose face changed dramatically was Ling Tianxiao.
After his kung fu was destroyed, he seemed to have lost his soul and had no feeling shown in his eyes.
When he heard that the Old Ancestor would use the book to kill Fang Qiu and use the experts in Wulin to deal with Fang Qiu, he saw hope again.
Nevertheless, his hope lasted only ten seconds.
Fang Qiu’s reappearance drove him to the valley bottom again.
As Ling Tianxiao saw Fang Qiu break into the basement, his knees buckled. He finally chose to cave in.
Looking at everyone in the Ling Family, Fang Qiu said coldly, “Such an excellent method. However… Since you guys like to kill people through others’ hands, don’t blame me for being merciless!”
Then Fang Qiu rushed forward.
The Old Ancestor shouted, “Fight together!”
He also rushed out first, collided with Fang Qiu with his severely injured body, and tried to lead everyone to siege Fang Qiu.
Unfortunately, he was no match for Fang Qiu even in his prime. Being seriously injured now also made him inferior to Fang Qiu.
Their punches met in the air.
The Old Ancestor was unable to resist Fang Qiu’s attack so he staggered back several steps due to the force and almost fell to the ground.
Fang Qiu showed no mercy and didn’t hesitate as he struck.
In the siege of everyone in the Ling Family, he made a counterattack that they could not block with absolute strength and speed.
Within three minutes, every one of the Ling Family fell to the ground, including Ling Xiuqi and the Old Ancestor.
Everyone’s kung fu and meridians were destroyed by Fang Qiu.
“So what if you’re an ancient martial arts noble family?”
Watching the people lying on the ground and looking rather depressed, Fang Qiu said coldly, “You’re not noble at all. You don’t deserve to possess kung fu. You’ve abused your power in Wulin for so many years. I don’t know how many people are forced to death by your power. From now on, you should be ordinary people and experience the hardships of being ordinary people!”
Fang Qiu then turned around and left.
Fang Qiu also knew that there were all Ling Family’s core members and powerful fighters in the bamboo forest. Apart from them, there were still other people in the Ling Family who were competent too.
As for those people, Fang Qiu didn’t bother to go after them.
After all, he never thought about taking down the entire family.
Now the powerful fighters of the Ling Family had gotten their kung fu stripped, which made the family almost useless. Those who were previously bullied by their family would definitely come over to teach them a lesson for what they had done before as soon as they got the news.
With the current strength of the Ling Family, it should be fine to deal with some small forces, but it wouldn’t be so easy to deal with a group of small forces.
The reason why Fang Qiu did this was that he wanted to see how many people the Ling Family had bullied!
If there were few people that they had bullied and no one looked for revenge, it could prove that the Ling Family should not be destroyed.
But if they had provoked so many people, the Ling Family was doomed, and Fang Qiu didn’t even need to take any action.
Leaving the Ling Family, Fang Qiu ran wildly in the mountains and forests, taking the same route as he got here before to return to Linxia City.
Halfway on his journey, his phone suddenly rang. “Dee dee…”
During a quick run, Fang Qiu took out his phone and took a look.
It was a text message from the Young Chinese Medicine Doctor program group. The title was the list of the 30 contestants who passed the assessment today!
Fang Qiu stopped to read the text message.
The first place that caught the eye at first was undoubtedly the name of Fang Qiu, followed by the second place— Luo Jie, who was the apprentice of Holy Doctor Chu.
Behind them were the descendants of the four famous families, Li Sanxiao, Leng Wenzhuo, Gu Shaoyu, and Chen Ziju.
Reading carefully, Fang Qiu found that Jiang Miaoyu also entered the top 30. Although she fell into the bottom half and ranked 16th, it was great for her to enter the next round.
After reading the message, Fang Qiu immediately called Jiang Miaoyu.
He knew that Jiang Miaoyu must be worried for he suddenly left, so it was better to tell her that he was safe and congratulated her as well.
The call got through.
Jiang Miaoyu answered in seconds. “Hello?”
Fang Qiu said jokingly, “Nice! You’ve got into the top 30. Congratulations. Now we got two good things happened in our home.”
Jiang Miaoyu snorted and said, “Humph. You didn’t help me cheat. I’m very angry now!”
Fang Qiu laughed and said, “Ha-ha. If I did cheat for you, you would really get angry, wouldn’t you? I know you have your pride. Anyway, you are also the descendant of the Chinese Medicine family, and you are also an apprentice of a highly-skilled doctor and the granddaughter of the holy doctor. Even if I wanted to, you would never let me help you cheat.”
Jiang Miaoyu responded naturally, “Of course. But my refusal is one thing, whether you do it or not is another thing. Don’t you know that sincerity matters the most? I don’t see your sincerity at all, so I’m furious right now.”
Fang Qiu laughed. “I remember that I offered to help you cheat in front of two cameras.”
Jiang Miaoyu snorted. “That doesn’t count, everyone knows that it is a joke. If you are serious, will you be so brazen?”
Fang Qiu thought about it and said, “How about this? I’ll bring something delicious back for you. Could you forgive me by then?”
Jiang Miaoyu said happily, “Well, that will do. If there is something delicious when you come back, I will forgive you.”
“Okay, see you tonight.” Fang Qiu hung up with a smile.
At the same time, people were watching the Wulin online forum.
“The List of Martial Superiors was updated again?”
“Recently, this list has been updated a bit frequently.”
“This time, it seems like a big update.”
“I just took a glance and found that many people’s names have disappeared from the list!”
The Wulin online forum which had been quiet for a long time suddenly was in a tumult again.
Many people who browsed the forum daily all found that the List of Martial Superiors was updated and it was a big change.
At this update, at least more than ten people disappeared from the list, and more than ten young people made it into the list.
What surprised everyone was that under these circumstances, the administrator would post a notice on the forum in advance if it was going to make a big update.
But this time, nobody was informed.
Suddenly, the List of Martial Superiors was inexplicably updated.
Just when everyone was puzzled, the sudden appearance of a post immediately caught everyone’s attention throughout the forum.
“The latest ranking of the List of Martial Superiors, the mysterious man John Doe: 648!”
As soon as this post appeared, it immediately caught everyone’s attention.
Although Fang Qiu’s continuous rising ranking before had attracted many people’s attention and it had also become a heated topic in Wulin for a while, with the passage of time, the influence of John Doe gradually faded.
As a result, everyone’s attention to the mysterious man was getting weaker.
They didn’t expect this. Just when everyone almost forgot the mysterious man, his ranking soared once again.
And this time, he soared from No.788 to No. 648.
This ranking was really incredible.
For many people, being ranked among the top 1,000 of the List of Martial Superiors was almost a lifetime glory.
The competition within the top 1,000 people was extremely fierce, so it was rather difficult to advance one place.
But John Doe made rapid progress every time he increased his ranking.
Everyone was just exclaiming when he was below No.700.
However, they were shocked when he rose above No.700.
“No. 648? Are you kidding me?”
“Oh my God, what did the mysterious man do?”
“Damn, I remember people who rank above No.700 are all seventh class experts with three meridians and even eighth-class experts. How did John Doe make it?”
As they were all amazed, everyone went to check the List of Martial Superiors.
However, they were even more shocked as they saw it.
“John Doe ‘s record has been updated!”
“Being a fifth-class Martial Superior, he fought against the Ling Family in Ganzhou Province and defeated the Old Ancestor who was an eighth-class Martial Superior with a meridian!”
After seeing the information below the ranking of Fang Qiu, a new record was updated. Everyone on the forum was dumbfounded!
Did he battle the Ling Family alone?
Moreover, he defeated the Old Ancestor who was an eighth-class Martial Superior with an opened meridian?
But his real strength only reached the level of a fifth-class Martial Superior.
Oh My God!
Was the mysterious man an actual human being?
