“Who are you?” Kai asked.
I am the elder of Archaic Body cultivators. What brings a young intruder like you to my residence? Are you here to steal my techniques and treasures?” the elderly man interrogated Kai.
“Sir, I ended up here by accident, and I have no intention of stealing your treasures and techniques. This is all just a misunderstanding. In any case, I’ll be off now…” Kai stated and turned to leave.
“Wait! I can see that you possess exceptional potential. I’d like to offer you the opportunity to become my disciple. If you’re willing to accept, I’ll provide you with all these techniques, secret scrolls, and treasures. Furthermore, I’ll pass down my entire legacy to you. What do you say?” The elderly man halted Kai’s departure and expressed his desire to take the young man as his disciple.
“I’m sorry, but I have no plan to take on al master at the moment…” Kai replied as he continued to head toward the exit.
“Are you looking down on me?” the elderly man asked angrily. Kai smiled faintly and said, “Indeed, I do have some reservations. Considering your current strength, I don’t think you can teach me much.”
“You ignorant brat! How dare you doubt my abilities?” the elderly man thundered.
“I’m not doubting you, Sir. I simply have little respect for you…” Kai replied, and suddenly, his Dragonslayer Sword appeared in his hand.
The icy-cold blade of the sword was aimed straight at the elderly man. Upon seeing this, the elderly man furrowed his brow and asked, “How do you still possess a weapon?”
Kai scoffed, “Why can’t I have a weapon?”
“You, young man, have no respect for your elders, and your character leaves much to be desired. You simply don’t meet my standards. Go on, then. Leave…” The elderly man stepped aside, urging Kai to depart quickly.
However, Kai simply wore a faint smirk and showed no intention of leaving.
“Sir, I’ve changed my mind. I don’t wish to leave anymore. I’d like to engage in a sparring session with you,” he said icily.
“If you spar with me, I can end your life with a mere flick of my finger. It’s best for you to leave and not squander your life needlessly.” The elderly man waved his hand, dismissing the idea of sparring with Kai.
“Sir, I doubt you have the capability to kill me in this illusionary realm,” Kai sneered and swiftly lunged at the elderly man with his sword in his hand.
The latter let out a cold snort, and with a casual wave of his hand, a rainbow-colored spiritual light surged toward Kai.
“I can’t believe a mere Fourth Level Body Fusion Realm cultivator can see through my illusionary realm…” the elderly man muttered, appearing somewhat surprised.
Kai wielded his Dragonslayer Sword and swung it fiercely at the rainbow-colored aura, only to get violently repelled by a tremendous force. A smug expression crept onto the elderly man’s face.
“You ignorant fool! Even within this illusionary realm, I can easily obliterate you!” the elderly man bellowed and unleashed a relentless barrage of palm strikes at Kai.
A monstrous force swirled around Kai, tearing at him. However, before it could finish him off, he vanished.
Seeing Kai disappear, the elderly man snorted and said, “I have to admit you’re quite remarkable to be able to see through my illusionary realm. It’s a pity that your cultivation level is too low.”
However, as soon as the elderly man finished speaking, Kai, who had previously disappeared, made his entrance again.
“Sir, do you really think my cultivation level is too low?” Kai smirked. “I have to say, your arcane array is quite subpar. I merely made a few adjustments, and the illusion array is now working in my favor.”
“Y-You know about arcane arrays?” The elderly man was genuinely surprised.
“Oh, I know more than just arcane arrays…” Kai replied and launched another attack at the elderly man.
“Such impudence!” the elderly man roared. His spiritual energy surged, and then a torrential wave of spiritual energy rolled toward Kai like the crashing sea.
Kai narrowed his eyes, and his Dragonslayer Sword erupted with radiant light.
