"Someone's trying to kill someone!"
"A cultivator fight!"
The pedestrians around them started scampering away with pale faces.
A fight between cultivators, even one of the lowest tier is dangerous to non-cultivators.
If the non-cultivators got dragged into this fight, they would be happy to walk away with just a few months of bed rest.
When cultivators fight, non-cultivators die. There are casualties every day in Silvaria. When the practitioners are fighting, anyone unlucky enough to encounter is basically guaranteed a trip to the hospital.
The non-cultivators ran for the closest exit. The ones who got blown away wished their parents had given birth to them with multiple legs, they wanted to get out of here as soon as possible. Soon, no one is in sight.
Only the initiated ones are left at the scene, including the two culprits who started this.
Wu Yan started frowning. He coldly asked the masked woman a question.
"Although I don't know why you attacked me, I hope you at least factored in the presence of civilians when you attacked me?"
Civilians are like ants to cultivators. Except for villains and jerks, most cultivators took care not to involve non-cultivators in their brawls.
This wasn't an act of kindness. It's just not good PR to hurt innocent bystanders. Nobody likes a bully, no?
Most cultivators know this so they picked proper venues for fights. They didn't want to bring innocent civilians into their fights.
Granted, there are villains who ignore this tacit rule.
The masked girl flinched. She was apologetic for a second before her hatred resumed control.
She replied with her light tone.
"I didn't hurt anyone. If I don't vent this frustration then this royal Princes-, I will not go home satisfied!"
Wu Yan raised an eyebrow.
"Did I wrong you in the past?"
The girl didn't answer. She asked him a question.
"Are you Wu Yan?!"
"That's my name..."
"Then, you're it!"
The girl started channeling magic power. She didn't give Wu Yan a chance to explain or ask questions.
"I am going to smack you to death!"
She sounded like a brat who is throwing a tantrum. Wu Yan wasn't angry, he just felt puzzled and shocked.
"Wait! There must be a misunderstanding here! I never wronged any girl!"
The girl started chanting while Wu Yan tried to stop her. Soon, a blooming lotus tornado shrouded her from view.
Wu Yan wanted to say something but the tornado was aimed at him like a spear. Next, she threw the tornado at him.
Wu Yan cursed. He knows something is up so he didn't use his real abilities. Moreover, he's not a fan of squabbling with a brat.
He looked bitter but he dashed towards the tornado anyway. Then, with a whip of his leg, he kicked the Tornado.
No magic power, no ESP, just pure power. He kicked the tornado into the sky.
The tornado that cracked the street got sent flying into the sky by a kick of pure strength.
The girls' eyes bulged. One can make out the shape of an 'O' through her silk mask. Her eyes were filled with disbelief.
"You kicked my spell away?"
The girl still couldn't believe her eyes. Wu Yan bitterly laughed while shaking his head.
He's more or less sure that this girl is a stranger and he is a stranger in her POV as well.
If she knew him then all the hubris in the world still wouldn't give her enough courage to assault the ex-strongest student in Silvaria World Institute. He is the Wu Yan who killed the peak tier 8 Marcus and Andrew like nothing.
Surely, if she's an enemy then she would know, right?
Indeed, the System's scan result also confirmed his theory.
Lana Feya: Level 55
Nope, not a single clue.
How did he make an enemy out of this brat?
Wait, Feya, is she a member of the imperial Feya family?
Wu Yan raked his brain and he couldn't come up with an answer so he chuckled bitterly. It just sounded like mocking laughter to Lana.
Naturally, she got enraged.
"Don't get smug with me! This Princess isn't using her true powers yet!"
Lana started huffing. She also leaked out vital intel.
Wu Yan followed up with another question.
"You're one of the Feya member?!"
"How did you know?!"
Lana stopped herself too late, she already confirmed Wu Yan's suspicion.
"Alright, Princess of the Feya Empire..."
Wu Yan rubbed his temples.
"I am going to ignore why you're here or what you're up to in the supply town. What's a big ol' princess doing in a remote town trying to waste someone?"
"I am not old! I am 17!"
Lana gnashed her teeth.
"I am going to tell you why. After I beat your butt!"
"Okay, I am starting to wonder who is the real idiot in this scenario."
He rolled his eyes.
"Do you think you have the ability to do that?"
"I am going to make it happen one way or the other!"
The princess laid down her decree like a typical noble lady.
"Let this princess teach you a lesson so I can go home in peace!"
Lana manifested a dainty-looking green wand. She started channeling her power.
Lana busted out her Armament!
Wu Yan was speechless.
Lana snorted and she focused on her spell. The crystal at the tip of her wand lit up.
It looks like Lana is planning on executing her spell so Wu Yan bit the bullet.
He needs to take her down since she's not going to reason with him.
Wu Yan disappeared through an instant teleport spell.
Lana's vision blurred as her target disappeared in an instant.
When she recovered her senses, her wand was already taken away. She looked down because she couldn't feel the weight of her wand.
My armament's gone!
While she's busy with that confusion, a black ring descended from the sky. The ring closed in on her. In an instant, Lana got bound.
"What is this?!"
Lana shrieked. Wu Yan placed his hand on the black ring.
"You did this?!"
Lana started struggling.
"Unhand this princess!"
Wu Yan snorted. He gave her a creepy grin.
"Before that, I feel like we need to have a little chat..."
