The Almighty Tyrant - chapter 74
“Huang Tiankong?! What the fuck are you doing here?!” Shi Li couldn’t help but blurt out.
Out of all the people that entered the illusionary realm, it had to be the one that he despised the most. Even though a Huang clan member killed the previous owner of his body and allowed him to transmigrate to where he is now, he still holds a lot of killing intent towards the Huang clan.
He finally knew what he forgot. The main goal that he swore upon. Inside the illusionary realm did his heart truly show his emotions like a mirror. He gritted his teeth as he finally remembered his first goal.
‘Get to the Middle Ascended Mortal realm and kill the whole Huang clan.’
His eyes turned crimson red, not because he was using his interface once more, but rather the anger that was built up from the feeling of the previous owner and his current feelings for the Huang clan.
Within seconds, a hammer similar to the Yin-Yang Hammer manifested on his hands as he darted towards Huang Tiankong with an expression of intense anger.
“I’LL KILL YOU!”
Even though he said this, he wasn’t infuriated at the clan to that extent. He just pitied the previous Shi Li because he was simply stabbed with a blade to death, which was the worst way to die to say the least.
Since he finally had a chance to at least repay the previous owner back, he might as well use this chance to relieve some stress as well.
Out of nowhere, billowing waves of magma appeared in front of his hammer as a magma ball the size of a human head was created. Not only that, he exerted the five movements of the [Serenade of the Nine Heavens], bringing the force behind the magma ball up by sixfold!
A flaming aura then appeared on the ball while Shi Li jumped into the air as he aimed the ball towards Huang Tiankong’s head.
He then used this chance of air time to activate his [Overlimit] skill, boosting his strength and agility properties even further as he flung the magma ball at the speed of a raging river.
In just a few seconds, the magma ball was only a few meters away from Huang Tiankong before all of a sudden, Huang Tiankong sniggered as he raised a finger to retaliate against the speeding magma ball.
“Ha! That magma ball is my strongest mo”
Shi Li’s words were stuck in his throat as he saw that with a single touch of Huang Tiankong’s finger, the magma ball was punctured, all of its power dissipating.
Huang Tiankong looked at Shi Li who was currently falling from the air and couldn’t help but say in a cold tone.
Shi Li’s heart couldn’t take it as he was insulted by his greatest enemy. The Huang clan that always bullies the Shi clan, its patriarch
Struck something inside Shi Li’s heart, causing him to lose motivation.
Rather than landing on his feet, he ended up landing face flat as he didn’t even have the courage to stand up anymore.
Even though it was just two words that didn’t really sound that mean, it held a lot of truth into it.
Shi Li was currently at the Third Stage of Skin Tempering realm and had a strength of 100 ren, whilst Huang Tiankong in front of him was already at the Ascended Mortal realm with a strength of thousands of ren!
Shi Li didn’t even know if he’ll ever reach the Middle Ascended Mortal realm in his lifetime, or even exceed that realm and enter the realms said by Senior Yan.
He stood up and looked at Huang Tiankong with a depressed gaze, while Huang Tiankong looked at him with a solemn gaze. If anyone were to see this, they’d think that Huang Tiankong was a father of Shi Li who was disappointed at him.
Sadly, that ain’t the case.
After a while of looking at Huang Tiankong in the eye, something flickered within his heart. It was a small flame, a small flame that almost wanted to disappear since it had no fuel, but it still flickered on, gathering and conserving all of the strength it has.
Shi Li looked closer and noticed that the small flame was of a crimson red color, a color that was ever too familiar to him.
At that point, the courage within Shi Li exponentially grew into a state where Shi Li emitted an aura that was multiple times stronger than Huang Tiankong’s.
So what if Huang Tiankong is stronger than him? So what if he can’t beat the Huang clan today? He must never forget that he has the Nonpareil Eye Interface to make him strong!
With the imposing aura surrounding his body, he focused it towards Huang Tiankong as he said some words that he wanted to say from the bottom of his heart.
“So what if I’m weak right now? Does that mean I’ll always be weak? Of course not! If I reach my limits, then I surpass those limits, and then surpass those limits once more! People change and so do I! You’ll eventually be an inconsiderable stepping stone in my life.”
Huang Tiankong’s eyes slightly widened before lightly smiling. He then talked at a solemn yet cheerful tone.
“I am just a fiction of your mind. For you to say that means that you have high goals in life. I hope you can kill me, one of your inner demons and reach a great stage.”
Shi Li was taken aback from Huang Tiankong’s words, but he was right. The Huang Tiankong he currently faced was a fiction of his own mind, even Huang Tiankong’s cultivation realm was only heard by him through rumors spread through the clan.
If he couldn’t face his fear, then how far would he get through life?
At the moment this question popped up in his mind, Huang Tiankong gradually closed his eyes as he stared off into the distance and started to disintegrate, turning into tiny light particles that scattered into the air before dissipating.
It was at this same moment that the walls surrounding Shi Li crumble down and turned into tiny light particles as well, allowing him to see the trees and shrubs that greeted him before.
But all of a sudden, he could feel an aura that was strange yet familiar to him. He turned his head to face the direction where the aura was emanating, and was shocked to see that a beautiful woman with her pitch black hair, rosy red lips and crimson red eyes, looked at him with a smile.
Not long after, the woman started to speak in a melodious and soothing tone.
But Shi Li didn’t feel relaxed at all, he rather felt fear.
The words he heard were
“How are you”
