Chapter 983: To Slap or not to Slap
“It’s indeed very interesting. Yi Yun’s words have caught me by surprise as well.” Felicitous Rain Lord said with a chuckle. How Yi Yun resolved the dilemma was obviously ingenious in his eyes. However, there existed a problem. Was he betting that Shi Fei and Shi Ping would not dare to kneel down or slap each other in the face? What if they truly went for broke? Wouldn’t Yi Yun end up being irrevocably committed to his taunt?
At that moment, everyone was looking at Shi Fei and Shi Ping. Their expressions were extremely ugly.
Yi Yun’s request sounded excessive, but in fact, it wasn’t. Getting Yi Yun to choose the Helltoothed Dao Tapir was an act that put his life at risk. As for them, their kneeling or slapping was only considered to be a bit of humiliation to their dignity.
Using a bit of humiliation in exchange for the crippling of Yi Yun was a completely reasonable request. If they did not choose to do so, they could not blame Yi Yun for being gutless.
And if that happened, they would miss the best chance to cripple Yi Yun. After all, once Yi Yun became Felicitous Rain Lord’s disciple in the future and be greatly appreciated by Felicitous Rain Lord, it would no longer be easy for them to touch Yi Yun.
However… to kneel down and kowtow in front of the eyes of so many people? Or to slap each other in the face? Furthermore, the slaps had to be loud? How could they lift their heads in the future after experiencing that?
How different would they be to retards?
Shi Ping and Shi Fei did not want to agree to Yi Yun’s request. They could not stand the humiliation under the watchful gazes of everyone.
But at that moment, Old Man Changsheng’s Yuan Qi voice transmission rang in Shi Fei and Shi Ping’s ears. “This is a very good opportunity. Yi Yun’s response might seem ingenious, but it’s actually him digging his own grave. As long as you make a tiny sacrifice, he would no longer have any room for retreat. Don’t forget the mission that the sect gave to you. If you really succeed, your future will be limitless. Do you want to give that up just because of a tiny sacrifice?”
“About that…Grandmaster Uncle, but we… ”
Shi Fei’s fat face was all scrunched up. He felt extremely aggrieved. How could he do it?
As for Yi Yun, he was beaming at Shi Ping and Shi Fei. “Why don’t you have the courage to kneel down or slap each other? How dare you goad me on with that bit of guts of yours? I’m not even afraid of a Helltoothed Dao Tapir that leads to unknown outcomes with my life on the line, but you don’t even have the guts to do such a trivial matter. From the looks of it, other than knowing how to shoot your mouth, there is nothing else that you are good at.”
Yi Yun’s mockery hit the nail on the head. Shi Ping and Shi Fei’s faces turned red immediately. In the towering tree’s hall, there were members of the younger generation of the alliance that had begun to laugh out loudly.
“Hahaha! Those two retards were so arrogant when they were goading people on. Their arrogance almost gave them wings to fly into the sky. Now, they are shrinking back so cowardly after being goaded on. They can’t even pay that tiny bit of price, but they want someone else to face a life-and-death challenge?”
“That’s right. If they were not Immortal Rain Sect disciples, and if they were in Yi Yun’s shoes, they would probably be pissing themselves if they had to face the Helltoothed Dao Tapir. They sure sounded almighty when they were mocking others, but when it was their turn, they turned terrified!”
The repressed Shi Ping and Shi Fei’s anger nearly exploded when they heard the mockery from the crowd and when they saw Yi Yun’s retard-watching gaze.
Was Yi Yun sick of living? They had previously learned that Yi Yun had yet to gain insights into a Dao Domain a year ago. After a year, how strong could his Dao Domain be? Against the Helltoothed Dao Tapir, it would be nothing!
They originally believed that Yi Yun was actually afraid that they would go for broke, but they never expected Yi Yun to deliberately provoke them. He was playing with fire!
With the mission delegated to them by the sect and with Yi Yun’s courting of death, they would accede to his wishes!
Let’s risk it!
Shi Fei clenched his teeth and like a sudden clap of thunder which left no time for one to cover one’s ears, he faced the scrawny Shi Ping standing beside him and began —
“Pa! Pa! Pa!”
His fat palm gave Shi Ping three consecutive slaps, with each one being louder than the previous one. The crisp sound of slapping echoed in Brocade Spring Court. Shi Ping failed to react in time and he was left startled by Shi Fei’s three consecutive tight slaps.
There was silence. The both sides of Shi Ping’s face had been smacked red. It had a burning sensation, and by the time Shi Ping snapped out of it, he looked at fatty Shi Fei in disbelief.
“Senior Brother, you… ”
“What?” The fat-faced Shi Fei stared at him with squinted eyes.
“No… nothing… ”
Shi Ping could do nothing about it, but he could not tolerate what had happened to him either. With nowhere to vent his anger, he fell silent for a moment. Suddenly, he clenched his teeth and suddenly swung his palm and smacked Shi Fei three times!
The three slaps were returned. As Shi Fei’s fat face was filled with blood vessels, it immediately turned blue-black.
The six slaps were delivered!
Immediately, the duo’s face looked like there were a dye shop. In addition to their ugly expressions, it looked like their faces had been grubbed by a hundred pigs.
That scene left everyone astounded!
And the scene had been projected through the projection array as well. Outside Brocade Spring Court, there were millions of people that were unqualified to enter Brocade Spring Court, but they had managed to see such an amazing scene.
They obviously knew the duo’s identity. They were genius disciples from a reclusive sect, the Immortal Rain Sect. Yet, they had to slap each other in the faces because of Yi Yun!
It was too surprising!
“Holy shit, that sure is some explosive stuff!”
“It’s really big news. The projection images can be stored. In a few days, it will probably proliferate throughout the alliance of the six countries. Everyone will be able to see Fatty and Scrawny’s magnificence.”
After a short moment of shock, everyone began discussing it excitedly!
The alliance was feeling repressed by the sudden appearance of the Immortal Rain Sect. But now, they felt elated and relieved seeing the duo shame themselves because of Yi Yun.
However, there were many people who were worried for Yi Yun. Yi Yun’s Dao Domain was unlikely to be anything much, so how was he going to clear the assessment?
Yi Yun was now looking all high and mighty, but he would be facing the Helltoothed Dao Tapir after that. If he was not careful, he would have to pay a terrible price.
“Your request has been fulfilled. Carry out your promise!”
“Let’s see how you can shrink away now!”
Shi Fei and Shi Ping said angrily to Yi Yun.
With a tut, Yi Yun said, “So nice of the both of you to hit each other so ruthlessly.”
Upon hearing Yi Yun’s mockery, Shi Fei and Shi Ping’s faces stiffened. “Cut the crap!”
Yi Yun shook his head and slowly walked in front of the Helltoothed Dao Tapir. Yi Yun looked up at the Helltoothed Dao Tapir. It was like a specter that was baring its fangs and brandishing its claws. It spiraled mid-air and had a terrifying aura. It was something that even the people outside Brocade Spring Court could feel through the projection array.
At that moment, Old Man Changsheng said to Felicitous Rain Lord. “Felicitous Rain, Yi Yun has already agreed to this matter. You probably wouldn’t intervene and help Yi Yun while disregarding your status, right?”
Felicitous Rain Lord frowned slightly but he did not say a word. Instead, Yi Yun was the first person to speak. He said loud and clear, “The assessment is obviously a matter for us younger warriors. Out of fairness, Senior Felicitous Rain shouldn’t intervene either. However… I want to withstand the Helltoothed Dao Tapir’s devouring together with Shi Ping and Shi Fei. The devouring should happen in sequence and when the outcome is obvious, it has to be stopped.”
With Felicitous Rain Lord around, Yi Yun believed that the old man would not directly kill him. And as long as the old man did not deliberately do something, Yi Yun was unafraid of anything if Shi Ping and Shi Fei were experiencing the same conditions.
