Chapter 47 – The Promise of the Confucian Scholar

In the capital city, on the street, Li Ziye was in a critical moment, and Bai Wangyu appeared again.

As if it were arranged by the heavens, or perhaps it was fate, every time Li Ziye was in danger, Hong Zhu would appear in time.

Even his own father was not so attentive.

“Bai Wangyu!”

Yan Xiaoyu saw the newcomer and his face darkened. How could he appear here?

“Divine Child, this is the capital city of Great Shang, not the Heavenly Oracle Hall. Please abide by the rules of our Great Shang Dynasty and do not fight in the street.”

As he spoke, Bai Wangyu stepped forward, drew the Taiyi Sword from the ground, and said lightly, “If the Divine Child insists on a fight, I am willing to accompany you!”

In front, Li Ziye’s face was full of gratitude.

Sure enough, Little Red Riding Hood was the most domineering!

Thank you, Amitabha, Hallelujah, every time he was in the most danger, Little Red Riding Hood would be sent to his side.

“Very well.”

Yan Xiaoyu looked at the Confucian School’s senior disciple in front of him, and a hint of battle intent appeared on his face as he said, “The last time we fought was two years ago. I also want to see how much you have improved in these two years!”

With these words, a divine light shone around Yan Xiaoyu, and the pure and flawless light rose, like a miracle, illuminating the entire street.

“Li…Brothers, please step back.”

Bai Wangyu looked at the two people behind him, and was about to call out the familiar two words, but then forcibly swallowed them and changed his address.

Li Ziye and Hong Zhu heard this and looked at each other, then silently retreated, leaving the space to the two of them.


Start fighting!

Beat this stinky fish to a pulp!

“Divine Child, please make your move!”

On the street, Bai Wangyu raised the sword in his hand and said calmly.


Yan Xiaoyu responded with a solemn expression. Facing the senior disciple of the Confucian School’s younger generation, he dared not be careless. His cultivation at the peak of the Second Realm was fully unleashed, and the two divine techniques roared, emitting an extremely powerful pressure.

The next moment, Yan Xiaoyu moved.

The white divine light was like a surging wave, and Yan Xiaoyu’s palm seemed to have the might of a god.

In the middle of the street, Bai Wangyu looked at the surging palm force coming towards him, his expression calm without a hint of panic.

The Taiyi Sword was swung, and the righteous qi surged, blocking the divine force of the Divine Child’s palm.

In the blink of an eye, the two of them locked eyes, and the force of their palms and sword qi collided, causing shockwaves that swept past them.

Around them, dust and waves surged, and wherever the qi force reached, it left a mess.

After one move, the two were evenly matched. The senior disciple of the Confucian School and the Divine Child of the Heavenly Oracle Hall both displayed the unparalleled arrogance of their generation.

After one move, the figures of the two of them moved at the same time.

In the blink of an eye, on the street, the palm wind and sword light crisscrossed, their speed becoming faster and their power becoming more astonishing.

The aftermath of the battle between the two spread continuously, and the surroundings of the street became even more chaotic.

Outside the battle, Li Ziye watched this battle of the younger generation’s unparalleled arrogance, his face full of shock!

It turned out that Little Red Riding Hood had not used his full strength when he sparred with him before.

Too strong!

“Young Master, you should watch carefully and observe every move and every technique of theirs, even their breathing. Such opportunities are not common and will greatly benefit your future martial arts path.”

Beside him, Hong Zhu watched the battle in front of her and reminded him.


Li Ziye nodded gently and looked at the two people in the battle with a burning gaze, unwilling to miss any details.

In the midst of the battle, Yan Xiaoyu felt that something was off. He glanced at the two people observing the battle outside the battlefield, then looked back at the senior disciple of the Confucian School in front of him.


Bai Wangyu seemed to be deliberately dragging out the battle.


In his thoughts, Yan Xiaoyu increased his true qi by another thirty percent, and the divine light surged out like a surging wave as he struck out.

Five steps away, Bai Wangyu stepped out in an instant, avoiding the palm force, and in the moment he arrived in front of Yan Xiaoyu, he struck with his sword.


Yan Xiaoyu turned his palm over and blocked the sword edge with a loud noise.

“I’ve got you!”

In the instant of blocking the sword, a cold light flashed in Yan Xiaoyu’s eyes. Then, he gripped the divine sword with his flesh and blood, and at the same time, condensed his qi with his left hand, transforming it into a sacred divine light that crushed everything.

The palm, which was within arm’s reach, was unavoidable.

Only to see Bai Wangyu not dodge or avoid, his righteous qi surged around him, and he also struck out with a palm, meeting the attack head-on.

With a violent tremor, the two powerful forces collided directly, and the battle was instantly deadlocked, with both of them retreating several steps, and it was difficult to determine the outcome.

“So, you’re not just good with a sword!”

Yan Xiaoyu looked at his opponent in front of him, his expression darkening as he spoke.

“I have never said that I only know how to use a sword.”

Bai Wangyu said lightly, “Palm techniques are also the foundation of the Confucian School’s martial arts. As the senior disciple of the Imperial Academy, how could I not practice diligently and lead by example.”

Outside the battle, Li Ziye listened to Little Red Riding Hood’s words and almost shed tears.

Look at how domineering he is, and then look at himself.

Forget it, it’s better not to say anything.

“The Confucian School’s Bai Wangyu is truly worthy of his reputation. Today, I have learned a lot. We will meet again in the future!”The opponent was difficult for a while, and Yan Xiaoyu was unwilling to continue the fight. He said coldly, then turned and left.

“No need to see me off.”

Bai Wangyu replied, then turned his gaze to the two people outside the battle, showing a gentle smile on his face.

Li Ziye quickly stepped forward, almost excitedly wanting to pick up the little red hat.

The little red hat is so handsome, and he drove away another one!

“Brother Li, how much did you understand?” Bai Wangyu spoke with a smile.

“Three moves.”

Li Ziye held out three fingers, grinning, “But, I also remembered the ones I didn’t understand.”

“That’s good then.”

Bai Wangyu nodded, relieved, “Yan Xiaoyu is very powerful, I can’t keep fighting him.”

“So, you were deliberately delaying, so that the young master could watch.”

Beside them, Hong Zhu stepped forward and said calmly, “Thanks to Bai Gongzi’s timely arrival, otherwise, both the young master and I would have been in big trouble today. However, how did you know that we were in danger?”

“I didn’t know.”

Bai Wangyu shook his head gently and smiled, “I just felt that with Brother Li’s personality, he might cause trouble when he goes out, so I came to take a look.”


Li Ziye heard this and his previously excited face suddenly turned as if he had been doused with cold water. He gritted his teeth in anger, “Are you saying that I’m a troublemaker?”

Hong Zhu couldn’t help but cover her mouth and chuckle when she heard this. Bai Wangyu really understands the young master.

“Brother Li, don’t misunderstand, I didn’t mean that.”

Bai Wangyu denied decisively, then changed the subject, “How did you provoke this Yan Xiaoyu?”

“I’m not sure.”

Talking about the main issue, Li Ziye’s expression became serious, shaking his head, “After I left the Yin Residence in the chaos, I immediately met up with Hong Zhu and we took a carriage back. There were no mistakes in the middle, and I don’t understand why this Yan Xiaoyu would target us.”


Bai Wangyu looked at the young man in front of him, puzzled, “If it weren’t for Miss Hong Zhu being by Brother Li’s side, even I wouldn’t have recognized him. The Divine Child has never seen Miss Hong Zhu, so he shouldn’t be able to guess Brother Li’s identity.”

“Weird things happen every year, but there are more this year.”

Li Ziye muttered, raised his arm and sniffed, “Is there something special about me? Can that Yan Xiaoyu, who is a dog, smell it as soon as he gets close?”


Hong Zhu was speechless and said, “Let’s talk about it when we get back to the residence.”


Li Ziye nodded and walked towards the Li Garden with the two of them.

On the way back, Bai Wangyu pondered the words Li Ziye had just said, feeling puzzled and unable to resolve it.

This matter is indeed somewhat suspicious. It seems that there is a chance to consult the Law Confucian or the Confucian Scholar.

At the Grand Honglu Temple, when Yan Xiaoyu returned, Liu Rongnü was waiting in the courtyard.

Seeing the former return, Liu Rongnü spoke with a hoarse voice, “The Divine Child has been out for so long, did he encounter any trouble?”

“I met Bai Wangyu and had a few moves with him,” Yan Xiaoyu replied.


Liu Rongnü’s old eyes flashed with a hint of light when she heard this, “What was the result?”

“The same as two years ago, no clear winner,” Yan Xiaoyu said calmly, “However, I found out that Bai Wangyu is not only skilled in swordsmanship, but also has remarkable palm skills.”

“Palm skills?”

Liu Rongnü frowned and said, “The Confucian School really are a bunch of secretive people who can’t stand the light. It’s true that the head of the Confucian School has been hiding in the Imperial Academy for a hundred years and his disciples are all the same, hiding their martial arts skills.”

“Be careful with your words, Lady Liu.”

Yan Xiaoyu’s expression changed slightly and said, “In this capital city, the Confucian Scholar has eyes and ears everywhere, and it’s very likely that he can hear what we’re saying.”

“So what if he hears? I’m speaking the truth.”

Liu Rongnü’s face darkened and said, “Since I dare to say it, am I afraid of him hearing it?”

“That shameless old man.”

In a small courtyard to the east of the Imperial Academy, Kong Qiu was tidying up the garden, shaking his head in silence, “Plum Blossom Sword Immortal, if you have the chance, help me teach that old man a lesson.”

“Is it the Confucian Scholar you’re talking about?”

Beside him, Qin E’nuo stood up and moved the weeds in the garden to the side, asking, “Liu Rongnü?”

The Confucian Scholar knows everything, but she doesn’t, so naturally she doesn’t know who the old man the Confucian Scholar is referring to.

“Who else besides him?”

Kong Qiu helplessly said, “He’s disrespectful to his elders. If it weren’t for the fact that he’s a junior, and he’s quite old now, I really want to slap him to death.”

Qin E’nuo chuckled and said, “You can do it, but I helped the Confucian Scholar, so he should have some kind of reward.”


Kong Qiu smiled and asked, “What does Plum Blossom Sword Immortal want in return? Your cultivation has reached the peak of the mortal world, and if you want to break through, you can only rely on your own insights. I can’t help you.”

“I don’t really need anything in return, but my disciple is still weak, and this capital city of Great Shang is full of danger. I think the Confucian Scholar could give him some guidance, or help him open up two or three meridians.” Qin E’nuo took the opportunity to make a request.”Haha.”

Upon hearing the conditions proposed by the woman before him, Kong Qiu couldn’t help but burst into laughter and said, “The Plum Blossom Sword Immortal truly refuses to be at a disadvantage, very well! However, this old man also has a condition. In a few days, the envoys from the Heavenly Edict Hall will enter the palace for an audience. At that time, Great Shang will face quite a few troubles. If your disciple can help Great Shang resolve these issues, I will consider your conditions.”
