Chapter 8 – Justice will eventually defeat evil!
If Lin Feng had a biography, Gu Nan could easily imagine how his feelings for Gu Nian would be described.
Lin Feng learned martial arts from Li Qinghui ever since he was a child, and after some progress, he entered the martial arts hall to learn combat skills.
He thought that he was one of the best, but when he ran into a figure like Gu Nian, a thread of love was sewn.
After returning home from the army, more and more women appeared around him, but he was only willing to marry Gu Nian. Even the childhood sweetheart Li Jingying was put aside…
But now Gu Nan was claiming that he already had an inappropriate relationship with Gu Nian a long time ago!
This was tantamount to splashing dung on Lin Feng’s face. If he didn’t go crazy from this, then he wouldn’t be the protagonist.
Seeing Lin Feng rushing out, Zhang Songhe suddenly gritted his teeth and simply roared, “Gu Nan, you have overstepped the bounds of proper human relationships; Heaven cannot tolerate this. We will kill you today!”
He spoke a bunch, but it could be summarised into two words— “Brothers, charge!”
And they did plan to charge soon. On their side, twelve Innate Realm experts were still alive. Although everyone was injured, they were still a force to be reckoned with.
Gu Nan was almost invincible only because he had the pillar, but he was still just one person!
‘As long as even one of us can close the distance…’
The eyes of the twelve masters all burned with the spirit of sacrificing their lives for righteousness, and then…
Gu Nan didn’t wait for them and just swung the pillar at them, swatting someone away. Upside down, that person flew out and was embedded into the wall. All the bones in his body shattered. He was basically dead.
Several sorrowful roars broke out, but no one slowed down. They knew that they couldn’t let their companion’s life be sacrificed in vain. Their only hope of defeating this demon was to use any means necessary to close the distance, but……
These elders were the most precious treasure in the martial arts world!
To die here for nothing… The hearts of all the martial arts legends were bleeding, and all of them swore that after they captured this fellow, they would definitely make him kneel down in front of everyone’s homes and kowtow in apology!
Unfortunately, fantasizing couldn’t solve any problems.
Gu Nan had always been standing in the same spot, trying to cause injuries and deaths. With a few precise swings of the pillar, several more martial arts legends retired.
By the time Zhang Songhe became the first to approach Gu Nan, only half of the twelve masters were left, and two were even on the ground with serious injuries, so only four could still fight.
Zhang Songhe’s eyes were completely red by now, and it seemed like blood would drip out any second. He roared, “Die, little thief!”
He ferociously launched a palm strike at Gu Nan, but something unexpected happened.
Gu Nan laughed and dropped the pillar in his hands, then leaped away like a monkey.
Zhang Songhe was dumbfounded. He never imagined that Gu Nan would actually run away! ‘But… This also seems pretty reasonable? He’s healthy and uninjured, so if he really wants to escape, how can an injured person like me stop him?’
As soon as Gu Nan widened the distance between them, he rushed towards another pillar and pulled it out in the same way!
‘Alright, we’re right back where we started…’
Gu Nan might still be in the mood to hum a song, but Zhang Songhe and the others were in despair. They paid such a high price to shorten the distance, but all the enemy did was simply change his spot?
Right when Zhang Songhe was in a daze, a few shouts suddenly entered his ear.
“Brother Zhang, hurry up and kill this little thief!”
Zhang Songhe quickly raised his eyes and saw that the two who were lying on the ground with serious injuries had managed to stand again when he was distracted. They clung to the pillar with all their strength and refused to let go!
Although their bodies were crippled, they didn’t lose any internal energy. They were currently using their exquisite internal energy to forcibly hold Gu Nan in place.
If Gu Nan hastily let go of the pillar, the internal energy that the two had already poured into the pillar would immediately counter-shock him.
Zhang Songhe’s eyes watered a little. To pour so much internal energy into the pillar was basically sacrificing one’s life to hold down the enemy.
This was the worst possible method, used only because they had no other alternative. Whether it succeeded or not, neither of the masters holding Gu Nan in place would have a good ending… But now, with their sacrifice, there was a glimmer of light!
Gu Nan, however, sneered, “Using internal energy to stop the pillar? Let’s see just how much internal energy you have!”
There was another muffled sound, and he forcibly pushed the broad pillar against them. It slammed into the chest of the two masters and made them vomit blood.
At this moment, the three masters besides Zhang Songhe exclaimed and simultaneously rushed to hold down the pillar together.
With the addition of three fresh troops, not even Gu Nan could get rid of them for the time being.
“Brother Zhang!” The five shouted in unison.
Without another word, Zhang Songhe rushed straight at Gu Nan, yelling for the second time, “Die, little thief!”
Gu Nan smiled coldly. He swiftly stepped forward, kicking away Zhang Songhe’s palm strike with one leg, then wrapped both his legs tightly around the latter’s neck!
Everyone was stunned. No one thought Gu Nan would be able to make such an outrageous motion even when his hands couldn’t move.
In terms of actual combat experience, how can these old men who haven’t fought anyone in decades be Gu Nan’s match?
The five people on the other end of the pillar finally lost their strength, and their faces all paled in defeat.
Zhang Songhe’s neck was squeezed until he couldn’t breathe, but he still glared at Gu Nan, hating how he couldn’t kill the little thief with his own hands… But just then, a light suddenly appeared in his eyes.
A figure had appeared behind Gu Nan some time during the fray. Both his eyes were red, a horrifying aura surged around his body, and his every move seemed to carry great power.
It was Lin Feng! And he had temporarily broken through to the Innate Realm, so his internal energy was unstable!
Zhang Songhe didn’t have time to think and hurriedly shouted, “Feng’er! Do it!”
And Lin Feng did exactly as he was told, slamming a hard punch on the back of Gu Nan’s head!
With this punch, his internal energy surged violently. This punch represented the dignity of internal martial arts masters, and this punch also represented the last hope of justice in the world!
‘Justice will eventually defeat evil!’ Lin Feng roared wildly in his heart.
The scene seemed to freeze.
Lin Feng, Zhang Songhe, and the remaining five famous legends all stared at Gu Nan’s body. They firmly believe that Gu Nan, who had no internal energy foundation, would be killed by this punch!
Only Gu Nian, who was still standing in a corner of the second floor, shook her head gently.
‘Although I’m a martial artist who reached the Innate Realm many years ago, I couldn’t damage Gu Nan, even after landing dozens of punches on him. Like hell Lin Feng—this little fellow who just stepped into the Innate Realm—can hurt a body tempering martial artist.’
Gu Nan loosened his hold on the pillar, and the heavy pillar smashed into the ground, making a loud noise.
On the other hand, Gu Nan himself slowly turned around and rubbed the back of his head somewhat helplessly. “Hey, what’s-your-face… that kinda hurts.”
The scene became dead silent as everyone fell into purgatory levels of despair.
