Bei Moi’s aura was even more powerful than before, proving that he had reached the ninth rank. Compared to when he was at the eighth rank, he was now twice as strong.
Under the analysis of his left eye, Zhao Feng concluded that Bei Moi’s strength was close to a half-step Holy martial artist. This meant that Bei Moi’s strength had surpassed Ye Linyun and Third Guard, and almost no one was his match under the Holy martial rank.
Lord Guanjun and Bei Moi didn’t really mind that Zhao Feng was late. Lord Guanjun and Bei Moi, the master and disciple, were the focus of the banquet. Lord Guanjun smiled happily as he looked at Bei Moi with care, love,and expectation.
Compared to him the other disciples such as Nan Gongfan, Zhao Feng, and Yang Qingshan were like the leaves of a flower.
“There’s still one month till the entrance examination of the Broken Moon Clan. Disciple here will definitely fulfill Master’s wish,” Bei Moi promised, he could feel the expectation and care from Lord Guanjun.
“You’re Master’s best disciple and I believe that you can walk even further after entering the clan,” Lord Guanjun nodded his head, smiling.
The banquet had come to the end, leaving behind Lord Guanjun and his six disciples. Even people such as Ye Linyun had retreated, which made Zhao Feng think that Lord Guanjun was going to say something important to his disciples.
“You all know that there’s still one month till the entrance examination of the Broken Moon Clan and Master here only has 3 recommendations. In ten days time, I will choose 3 people depending on your strength and potential,” Lord Guanjun went straight into the topic.
Everyone’s heart shook when they heard this. Even though they all had the same master, they needed to fight one another for the 3 spots.
6 people, 3 recommendations!
In the midst of them, Bei Moi easily took up one spot. This meant that out of Yang Qingshan, Nan Gongfan, Feng Hanyue, Zhao Feng, and Zhao Yufei, only two of them would be chosen. When the Nepalese youth woke up, he saw Lei Yin standing with the two men and talking to them.
“You, you finally came.” The youth was pleasantly surprised, and immediately crawled out of the bed.
“How are you, is there any part of your body that feels uncomfortable?” Lei Yin turned to look at him.
The youth shook his head, “When did you arrive?”
“I just came, are you hungry? Let’s eat first.” Lei Yin received a lunch box from one of the men.
The youth hadn’t eaten all day, and he was really hungry. So, after opening the lunch box, he gobbled it all up.
“You two go outside, I have something to talk about with him.” Lei Yin said to the two men.
After saluting him, the two men left the room.
After waiting for him to finish eating, Lei Yin said to the youth: “Ji Teba, there is something I want to ask you.”
Invincible Conqueror What is it?” The youth put down the teacup in his hand.
“Do you still remember what happened at noon?”
“I don’t remember.” The youth didn’t dare look at his eyes.
“Ji Teba, there are some things that can’t be resolved as long as it is buried. In your present situation, even if you return to Nepal, what use would it be?”
“I, I really don’t know what you’re saying?”
“Don’t tell me you don’t remember losing your mind. Also, don’t tell me that, that thing of yours is inborn.” Lei Yin suddenly tore off his clothes.
The youth suddenly screamed, and immediately jumped away from Lei Yin. Heading straight towards the bed, he covered his body with the bed sheet.
Seeing the youth looking at him with a very terrified look, Lei Yin didn’t stop and instead walked towards him.
Seeing that Lei Yin was getting closer to him, the youth shrunk his head like a wounded beast and started roaring loudly.
When Lei Yin was at his side, he instantly moved his finger towards several of his meridian, immediately stopping the youth’s squeals. Then, Lei Yin grasped his head with both of his hands to make him face him.
“You listen to me, you’ll only tell me the things that happened to you without excluding anything, I have a way to help you. Otherwise, you’ll never be a normal person again.” Lei Yin said loudly to him.
The youth was awed by how loud his voice was, and could only stare at him.
Taking advantage of this opportunity, Lei Yin continued: “You’ll have to believe me, maybe I can help you restore your original appearance.”
Hearing the words “Restore your original appearance”, the youth’s eyes revealed some anger.
He tried to speak with his mouth opened, but couldn’t say anything.
Seeing that he had something to say to him, Lei Yin immediately touched his meridians.
“You…you can really change me back to how I looked before?” Tears were streaming down the youth’s face, as he looked at Lei Yin.
“Although I can’t guarantee it, but I’ll help you with everything I have.”
The youth began to calm down, and the startled look in his eyes disappeared.
“My body can turn into this, it was created by those bad people.” The youth finally, slowly, began to talk.
“Are you referring to those people wearing white clothes?”
Hearing those men with white clothes, a frightened expression appeared was on Ji Teba’s face, and he then nodded.
After 10 minutes of telling his painful story, the youth collapsed on his knees as he tried to stand up.
“So, if you didn’t take the medicine they give you in a certain period of time, you’ll go mad?” Lei Yin asked.
“I’m not sure, I only know that if we don’t eat those pills, my body would sometimes become very hot, just like when you have fever. And then, at the time when I woke up, I had already become a mess, and my fingers, as wells as my lips, were bleeding. I think it’s due to my own doings.” The youth said with his head down.
“Then the hair on your body, did it also emerged after you were injected?”
The youth sorrowfully nodded, “I’ve tried to pull it out, but it would always grow back.”
“How many people did you run away with?”
“That night almost all the people there ran away, but many of those were gunned down, and died while trying to escape. So, those who had escaped shouldn’t be many. However, Brother Ye Bin had certainly successfully escaped, because he is a very intelligent person. I was together with him, but we soon separated because of the chaos.”
“Is, Brother Ye Bin, the person you said who was also Nepalese?”
“Yes, in there, not many were Nepal, in addition to me there were only five people.”
“Who were they? I mean, which country were the people there from?”
“There were seven or eight Vietnamese, more than 10 Chinese, and more than 20 Malaysian. There was also a man with golden hair, I’m guessing he may be American, but Brother Ye Bin said that foreigners looked, almost, all the same. So, even, he couldn’t guess which country the man was from.” With the gradually deepening conversation, the youth talked more and more smoothly.
Although his guess was about the same, but Lei Yin still felt uncomfortable in his heart.
It seemed those people, who were crazily being experimented, are some of the illegal immigrants smuggled into Japan, so they didn’t need to worry about where the body came from, nor did they fear that others would investigate it. But even illegal immigrants that are captured can’t be sent to the lab right away, without the assistance of the government officials, the darkness involved may be going much deeper than he had expected.
However, this matter unexpectedly involved people, regarding this, Lei Yin didn’t know, if he should step in and investigate the matter himself.
The reason being, just like how Jiro had thousands of reasons to die, was because if he stepped in to investigate, even if he was careful, there would still be a chance that his identity would be found. He wasn’t afraid of the people that were going to get him, but that they’ll move in towards his family or friends. This was something Lei Yin didn’t want to see. So, now he needed to find a man who can replace him, and with the use of the power of the Black Dragon behind him, he could conduct an investigation. And at the time he gets the evidence, he could then expose it all through someone.
‘An agent?’ A face suddenly emerged in Lei Yin’s mind.
Seeing Tsukada’s expression, as if he had just attended a funeral, several other police officers laughed gleefully.
“Let me guess, that snow woman scolded you, didn’t she?” Sanada Daisuke grasped his own chin, and asked.
Tsukuda then furiously threw the report, in his hand, onto the table, and then grumbled: “I wonder what that woman ate, recently she has been scolding me almost every day. If this is because she’s on her period, then this is just too long.”
“I had already reminded you, that recently her complexion looks very bad, probably because of a family matter. At this time, you should be careful not to make any mistakes, but you’re always so careless, you should know that she’d even notice little things like, when you read magazine during work.”
“I didn’t imagine that it would be this bad.” Tsukuda said with regret.
“But there’s something I just don’t understand, why does she tell you to investigate a college student named Gennai Masashi. This kid looks like he’s just an ordinary student, more importantly he doesn’t have any criminal record, it’s really strange.” Sanada Daisuke looked at the photos in the report, as he spoke.
“Who know what that woman is thinking. Perhaps she sees something in this guy. Or perhaps, she’s using the guise of work, for her own interest, and help her look up other….” Tsukuda wasn’t able to finish what he was saying, when Sanada Daisuke suddenly patted him hard.
“What?” Tsukuda was a little discontented for being interrupted, but he quickly knew the reason why he did that.
He saw Eiko Kotoshi wearing a black skirt, walking out of her office.
“Battalion Adviser, please take care.” All the police officers immediately saluted to her.
After all the police saluted, she said to them: “You can go back earlier.”
After going out of the criminal department, all of the police officers couldn’t help but relax.
“Why, why is she going early today, she usually works till late at night.” Sanada Daisuke felt it was strange.
“She probably has an appointment; didn’t you see the violet flowers sent for her downstairs?” Another police officer replied.
“I didn’t think that someone would pursue that woman. But why must they send her a violet flower instead of a red rose?”
“How would I know? But to be honest, that woman Eiko Kotoshi is actually pretty good. Out of all the female officers in Tokyo, she’s the most beautiful one, she also had a deadly figure, unfortunately her character isn’t good. Alas.” Sanada Daisuke said while shaking his head.
Several other officers also felt the same, and nodded.
“Eiko, I want to talk to you about something.” As she was eating, Sayaka Kotoshi suddenly said something to Eiko Kotoshi.
“What’s the matter?” Eiko Kotoshi raised her head, and looked at her mother.
The more than 40 year old Sayaka Kotoshi suddenly blushed, and after a moment, said: “Yesterday, Yaetera proposed to me, and I, I don’t know if I should accept or not.”
Hearing her mother’s words, Eiko Kotoshi’s face instantly sank.
“This kind of thing, you decide on your own. I’ve had enough.” With that, the police woman stood up, and walked to her room.
“Eiko….” Sayaka Kotoshi shouted at her, but the Eiko didn’t stop.
After seeing her daughter close the door, Sayaka Kotoshi was at a loss.
And at the same time, on the other side of the door, Eiko Kotoshi was also distressed.
Why mother, why would you marry that kind of unbearably rude man? The policewoman furiously threw the pillow on the ground.
Dad, if you don’t come back, my mother would no longer be your wife.
Eiko Kotoshi looked at the photo on top of her bed, staring at the photo inside the frame, there was a gentle man holding a baby. And next to him, was a young Sayaka Kotoshi.
Actually, deep down in heart, she had always sympathised with her mother for being alone for eight years. Eight entire years… How much of a woman’s life was eight years? A lot that’s how much.
Although she intellectually understood, but she just couldn’t accept her mother with another man, particularly a, huge, uneducate like Yaetera.
Although she urgently wanted to find her father’s whereabouts, but the recent investigation amount to nothing. Looking into the Police Department’s personnel file, she found that there weren’t many people that had the surname “Goyama”, but the total number of people who had that surname exceeded a hundred. After some screening, she only chose the people between the ages of 30 and 60, and then analyzed their information one by one. After that, she divided them once more, which resulted with only 30 people remaining. Among these thirty men, she carefully looked at their information, but she found that they weren’t actually in any especially suspicious place. Moreover, these people lived all across Japan, so it was impossible for her to track them one by one. As a result, her investigation reached a bottleneck.
She even suspected, that the person, whom her father talked to that year, “Goyama” may not at all be in those personnel files.
This wasn’t based on mere speculation, and as far as she knew, from the personnel file in the police force, although it was the most detailed registration system of the population, but that was only the case for public people. For those in high position, it would be nearly impossible to find any information of them.
After so many years, the so-called “Goyama” the chance that he had achieved a higher social class, was very likely.
She urgently wanted to know the truth, but she couldn’t find a single clue, feeling that she was powerless, she felt irritated.
Perhaps I shouldn’t be a police women, but rather run for congress, maybe that would give me access to some inside information. Eiko Kotoshi self-depreciatingly thought.
At this time, she suddenly remembered something, and then took out a card from her pocket.
This card was with the ribbon wrapped around the violet flower sent to her today.
At first, she thought that the flowers were sent to her by one of the men pursuing her, but now that she looked at it, that was an unlikely case. Because there was nothing written on the card, except for an email address. After she asked the person responsible for delivering the flower, she only got to know that the person was a man wearing a suit and sunglasses, so the man wasn’t able to see that man’s appearance.
As these gray particles touched the strewn corpses of Evil Toutous, all blood and flesh was stripped away, leaving only their gray skeletons behind.
The skeletons began surging towards Ayrin and Rinloran as if they were being controlled by invisible hands.
“Death: Return to Bone!”
“This fellow, he’s received some of the Evil Dragon’s Bloodline, and can use Death: Return to Bone!”
Everyone’s expression suddenly changed as they watched this terrifying taboo skill spread across the battlefield.
“You… you dare ruin my dinner!” Ayrin suddenly roared in anger, stunning everyone present.
Anger rippled across Ayrin’s face as arcane particles spewed out from his hands.
“Skunk Devil Summoning!”
An innocent looking striped skunk appeared and dropped from midair.
“Ayrin… you, just how much do you like this arcane skill for it to always be the first skill you use when you are pressured or angered?!”
Black lines abruptly emerged on Rinloran’s face.
“This is the skill you are using?” The two Green Snake arcane masters blankly stared at the striped skunk.
A rainbow colored ring of light blossomed from Ayrin’s body.
“What! How can he know Cocktail Grandmaster Leonardo’s arcane skill?!” the two Green Snake arcane masters shouted in disbelief.
“What is this?”
Ayrin forgot about his two enemies as he watched the striped skunk merge with the rainbow colored ring of light and suddenly distort and melt into a black haze.
He watched as the black haze shot towards the wounded Green Snake arcane master.
The wounded Green Snake arcane master immediately felt something off as he covered his body with a green light.
A cry of terror escaped his lips as the black haze touched the green light around him.
Now that the black haze had come closer, he was able to see that it was in fact composed of many tiny maggots!
And they were devouring the green light surrounding him at an unbelievable speed!
Before he could even react, countless of the little black maggots had already penetrated through the green light around him and reached his body.
The wretched cries of this wounded Green Snake arcane master abruptly stopped.
“Poisonous Devouring Maggots!” the lanky arcane master screamed as he suddenly retreated.
Not even a second had passed, yet there was already only a skeleton left. The black maggots which had burrowed into his body had transformed into moths as they left the body behind and flew off.
“He immediately died?!”
Looks of total disbelief flashed across the faces of Rinloran, Zorn, and the other fighting Shadowfiend Corps members.
“Not bad! Indeed incomprehensible! Always breaking my expectations!” Rui thought to himself from within the domain as he felt the uneasiness in his heart lessen.
“Rinloran, help me clear a path!”
Taking advantage of the shock caused by his one-shot of the wounded Green Snake arcane master, Ayrin immediately charged towards the lanky one, quickly closing the distance between them.
He knew that regardless of how quickly he moved, Rinloran would be able to keep up because Rinloran was faster than him.
A black ring of light immediately surrounded the lanky Green Snake arcane master.
Following the match against Golden Stag Academy, Ayrin had realized why Liszt had gone through so much trouble by fighting Leonardo to provide him with an opportunity to learn ‘Warlock Variation’.
This skill could turn even the most ordinary arcane skills into something extraordinary.
Since then, Ayrin had been searching for someone to try using a higher level skill like ‘Ruin Fetters’ in combination with Warlock Variation on.
However, by the time the black ring of light had fully formed, the lanky Green Snake arcane master had managed to reposition somewhere else.
A black shade taller than a person formed before him. In the blink of an eye, it was already before Ayrin.
But right at this moment, the black ring of light disappeared under the influence of the waves of chaotic arcane energies.
A long black crystal snake silently appeared under the lanky Green Snake arcane master’s feet and abruptly wrapped around him.
Rinloran’s longsword accurately collided with the attacking black shade.
As Rinloran’s longsword penetrated the black shade, he suddenly felt countless strange and terrifying arcane energies flow through his longsword and into his body.
He felt a suction force on the blood within his body as blood abruptly spurted from the pores on his arm and his heart tightened, as if it were being squeezed by an invisible hand and about to be pulled out from his chest.
“Dread Shadowcrystal Snake!”
Upon being wrapped up by the black crystal snake, the lanky Green Snake arcane master subconsciously quaked in fear.
“Seal: Curse of Death!”
Arcane particles surged out from his hands at a speed faster than ever, causing his fingertips to tear.
Ten sheets of light containing domain powers formed and pressed down on the snake around his body.
The black crystal snake quickly disappeared.
At the same time, Rinloran felt arcane particles surge out from his hand, forcefully separating his longsword from his hand.
He coughed out some blood as the pressure within his body lightened and the invisible hand clutching his heart disappeared.
As for the lanky Green Snake arcane master, he let out another wretched cry and then disappeared back into the dense forest.
“You cannot hold back any longer…”
At this moment, the anxiety and unrest in Rui’s heart completely disappeared as an aura which caused even him to tremble suddenly descended upon the battlefield.
“Rinloran, are you alright?”
Ayrin didn’t bother chasing the lanky Green Snake arcane master and instead immediately turned towards Rinloran.
“This… there is still such a powerful enemy in the shadows… I can’t move?”
Both Ayrin and Rinloran froze at this moment.
A terrifying arcane energy fluctuation and horrifying aura caused the both of them to feel as if their bodies had been invaded by an extreme cold and completely frozen. Chapter 239: Black Necromancer Gaia, Rui’s True Ability
Ayrin felt an immense pressure as a domain suddenly descended over the battlefield.
“This bastard! He still won’t reveal himself!”
“Is this fellow trying to directly take control of our bodies?!”
Thoughts frantically passed through Ayrin’s mind as he failed to discern the position of the owner of this terrifying aura. He watched as clusters of black light flew through the sky like crows and the space around him and Rinloran distorted while an ice cold energy pervaded his body.
His arms and legs began moving, but it was not at his behest. As time continued and the ice cold energy of the domain sank further into his body, even his arcane particles fell out of his control. Everything was in the hands of the unseen enemy arcane master.
“I can’t control myself!”
“No, if it continues like this, both Ayrin and I will die!”
Shock flashed through Rinloran’s eyes as his hands began to glow and he uncontrollably reach for Ayrin’s throat.
The difference in strength was just too great. Rinloran was completely unable to resist. He couldn’t even sense his arcane particles anymore.
“Holy Transformation: Four Faces!”
At this most critical junction where it seemed like Ayrin and Rinloran were beyond the point of saving, Rui suddenly chanted an invocation from within the domain which he was sealed in with Black Ripper.
Release That CiV Black Ripper’s expression abruptly changed.
As Rui’s body began to radiate with a bright and holy light, Black Ripper felt his domain quickly melting away as if it were completely unable to resist.
Rui’s figure suddenly changed.
Arcane particles flashed around his head as faces appeared on the side and back of his head.
The appearance of three more faces on Rui’s head didn’t seem strange anyone. Instead, everyone felt awe; it was as if he had undergone a divine transformation and ascended beyond humanity.
Black Ripper suddenly felt pain shoot through his chest. When he blankly lowered his head and looked, he saw a fist sticking through his chest.
Only when blood spurted from his chest and energy began leaving his body did Black Ripper finally awaken from his daze. The image of a four faced Rui was still reflected in his pupils, yet in reality, Rui had long since arrived behind him and pierced through his body with a punch!
In the next moment, before any more thoughts and feelings could run through Black Ripper’s mind, he felt a gentle gust of rippling arcane energy over his chin.
The moment Rui had punched through Black Ripper’s chest, he had used his other hand to wrap around Black Ripper and snatch the green crystal mask off Black Ripper’s face and put it on his own.
Ayrin’s eyes widened in disbelief.
Of Rui’s four faces, the front face wore the green crystal mask.
At the same time, in the space in midair before Ayrin and Rinloran, a human figure with black flames flickering around their body suddenly appeared. Following an extremely rapid invocation, a dusky yellow screen of light appeared in the air and slammed downwards.
The green crystal mask on Rui’s face abruptly began to glow brightly.
His other three faces abruptly slipped off his head and lined up alongside his front face.
The mouths of the four faces simultaneously moved.
“What more trump cards do you have? Use them all,” Lu Hun said with a lofty expression. Even against an opponent like Chen Feng, Lu Hun would not underestimate him. Truth be told, after the few confrontations they’d had, he was already seeing Chen Feng as an opponent at the same level as him, to the point where he had requested the Mysterious Organization’s leader accompany him here as backup. From this, it was clear how cautious he was when facing Chen Feng.
Evidently, he had suffered defeat way too many times at Chen Feng’s hands. On top of that, the method used by Chen Feng to insta-kill the two peak A-class warriors earlier was weighing on his heart as well. No matter what, this was an opponent he could not afford to underestimate.
“…” Instinctively, Chen Feng glanced at the Mysterious Organization’s leader.
“Don’t look at me,” the Mysterious Organization’s leader stated lazily. “I am only here to prevent your escape. Mhm… Brother Lu said that you have a lot of trump cards. Therefore, he needs my assistance here.”
“…” Chen Feng could only smile bitterly as a response. Was there a need for this? He was only a newly advanced small time B-class warrior. Against a small fellow like him, two experts surpassing A class had to be deployed? This was too excessive! Was it truly possible for him to contend against those surpassing A class? If Lu Hun had appeared earlier, when his luck value had still been unlimited, there might have been a chance.
Green radiance started flickering. A weapon condensed in Lu Hun’s hand. A gush of power surpassing A class flickered without stop. Chen Feng’s nerves went taut. As he looked at the faraway Mysterious Organization leader that was maintaining constant vigilance and then looked at the too-small amount of luck value he had, his heart chilled. This time, things were truly becoming troublesome. With this little amount of luck value, he might still be able to escape from Lu Hun alone. But now…
From the dusky sky, raindrops fell without stop. The black drops rained down, seemingly to cleanse everything. When the drops landed on their bodies, they ricocheted down to the ground. Here in this unknown region not far from the Mysterious Organization, an austere mood pervaded the air. Lu Hun’s entire body was enveloped in a layer of green radiance, and his killing intent intensified unendingly. Suddenly, the Mysterious Organization leader stretched his hand out.
“Yi?” With a somewhat odd expression, he looked at the black water on his hand before staring at the sky. “Something seems wrong.”
Lu Hun wasn’t exactly surprised. “What’s up?” The present him was no longer the same extremely egotistical person he’d been when he had first met Chen Feng. The moment he had decided to make a move against Chen Feng, he had already been expecting Chen Feng to do something.
The Mysterious Organization leader frowned. “I keep feeling that something is off.” Suddenly, a black radiance seemed to flash through the sky.
With the black sky as the backdrop, that bizarre dark figure was not visible to the eyes. However, the shaking in the air was something everyone could clearly feel.
Space trembled. Abruptly, the expressions of Lu Hun and the Mysterious Organization leader changed. Their connections… had been severed! Their connections with their main bodies had actually been severed! Presently, far away, at a certain location high above the sky, Lu Hun and the Mysterious Organization leader had unsightly expressions on their faces. A short moment ago, they had lost their connections with their clones. Moreover, the hovering screen used to monitor the scene had vanished as well. They could no longer see anything.
Lu Hun shut both his eyes. “Chen Feng…” A fire was raging in his heart. Every single time he confronted this Chen Feng, some mishap happened! From the first encounter where his wife had absurdly fallen in love with Chen Feng to the subsequent encounters where Chen Feng had escaped him in an absurd manner to transforming into Wang Feng after his “death,” and so on. During all of these incidents, all sorts of random coincidences had happened. This time was no exception despite the fact that he had recruited the help of his junior apprentice brother.
The Mysterious Organization leader pondered before saying, “There’s no need to worry. Even if our connections with our clones has been severed, our clones will still remain at peak A class with a power that slightly surpasses a regular peak A-class warrior. Chen Feng is not a match for the both of our clones. As long as the clones succeed in killing Chen Feng, everything will be settled.” The Mysterious Organization leader was confident.
“Perhaps.” Lu Hun had nothing much to say to that. Due to the many failures in the past, he no longer had any confidence when facing Chen Feng, despite the fact that this Chen Feng was merely a fellow much weaker than him. At this time, in that unknown region where the clones’ connections had been suddenly severed…
Shock appeared in Lu Hun’s eyes. “You are actually capable of this?” Their clones had been created with unique methods, granting them a connection to the thoughts of the main bodies. This was something that couldn’t be blocked. Unexpectedly, Chen Feng was actually capable of totally blocking the connection.
Ah? Chen Feng was dumbfounded. Even he was not aware of what was happening. Was this the aftereffect of his Luck Aura? But then, he had yet to activate his Luck Aura. Could this truly be a coincidence?
“Forget it. Just kill him directly,” the Mysterious Organization leader stated decisively.
Lu Hun nodded. “Mhm.” They could not afford to be disconnected from their main bodies for long.
A bright radiance started shining. The killing attack in Lu Hun’s hand bloomed. Regardless of the tricks employed, they only needed to focus on killing Chen Feng.
Two extremely terrifying radiances bloomed. The frightening attack in Lu Hun’s hand streaked toward Chen Feng. However, right as that attack reached Chen Feng, right before Chen Feng could be killed…
A stuffy sound echoed. Next, his body stiffened. Chapter 425: You Guys Sure Have a Way to Have Fun
Translator: Limostn Editor: Tennesh
He had to kill Chen Feng. This time, Lu Hun had prepared to kill Chen Feng even if it meant destroying his clone in the process. An intent had been planted within this clone the moment it had been created. He was aware of how perverse Chen Feng was. He was also aware that Chen Feng might still possess other trump cards. Therefore, he’d made a lot of preparations and prepared a lot of methods this time. Surprisingly, when his attack was about to land, something still occurred. Moreover, what happened was something totally inconceivable.
A stuffy sound could be heard. Instantly, Lu Hun’s body that had been charging toward Chen Feng went rigid. On his chest, blood blossomed.
Instinctively, Lu Hun turned around. He was under the impression that some terrifying life-form had appeared from the darkness. However, surprising him, when he turned around, a familiar figure entered his sight.
The terrifying power started spreading through his entire body from his chest. At this moment, that clone of Lu Hun’s started collapsing.
“You…” Lu Hun widened his eyes in an unbelieving manner and asked, “How is this possible…”
The clone exploded, dead.
Transforming into countless particles, Lu Hun’s clone dissipated. At this moment, the rain was growing heavier. The pitch-black raindrops landed on the ground without stop. With such a scene as the backdrop, that pitch-black figure behind Lu Hun appeared even more bizarre. Surprisingly, that was actually the Mysterious Organization leader. The diamond on his forehead was shining even brighter now.
Chen Feng was totally stupefied. “The… f*ck?” What had he seen? The Mysterious Organization leader had just killed Lu Hun’s clone? Mhm… blocking their connection before killing the clone?
If so, even Lu Hun’s main body would not be aware of what had happened here. Could this be the works of his Luck Aura as well? Instinctively, Chen Feng checked his Luck Aura. Had Luck Aura gained a new function after upgrading? A function to cause his opponents to fight among themselves? However, when he checked, he noted that no such change existed in his upgraded Luck Aura. His luck value still remained the same as well.
Earlier, during his moment of crisis, Luck Aura had been activated. If it had worked, the luck value would most definitely have gone down, but none had been consumed. It was still the same 1,000 points. In that case… Chen Feng rubbed his skull and wondered if he had coincidentally stumbled upon the inner power struggle of the Mysterious Organization? This was too lucky!
Wait. He pondered deeply again and noted that this wasn’t something worth rejoicing. After this Mysterious Organization leader killed his senior apprentice brother’s clone, he would most certainly not leave an outsider like Chen Feng alive. At this thought, Chen Feng activated his Luck Aura. Since only this leader was left here, he might be able to escape. His gaze started racing around, looking for an opportunity to flee.
With a flicker, the Mysterious Organization leader instantly reached Chen Feng.
Chen Feng’s heart sank and a chill went down his spine. At this moment, though, a familiar yet ancient voice resounded. “What are you running for?”
Instantly, Chen Feng’s body stiffened.
He turned around abruptly. The darkness that was the body of the Mysterious Organization leader solidified and revealed his true appearance, an appearance that had not appeared for a very long time.
Instantly, Chen Feng’s pupils dilated. “Qin Hai!!!” That’s right, this was Qin Hai!
On that familiar face, some additional scars could be seen. This was the face of someone who had gone through the vicissitudes of life, and it appeared somewhat older than before. However, it was still a face Chen Feng was familiar with.
Chen Feng was overjoyed. “It’s really you!” So many years had passed, yet Qin Hai was still alive!
A smile appeared on Qin Hai’s face. “It’s me. It’s indeed me…”
Chen Feng gave Qin Hai a firm hug. “Hey.” Both him and Kong Bai had still been feeling guilty about Qin Hai’s sacrifice, after all. Finding out that Qin Hai was still alive was truly good news! Despite the huge amount of questions he had, he only needed to know that Qin Hai was still alive. That was sufficient.
Qin Hai was aware of what Chen Feng wanted to ask, and he started talking, “For some unknown reason, the Sage suddenly decided to accept me as his disciple. With that, I become a part of the ancient race.”
He paused and glanced at Chen Feng. Based on his guess, this might be related to Chen Feng’s Luck Aura.
Chen Feng smiled. “I am aware of that.” This had already been told to him by Xiong Er. What he had been worried about was Qin Hai’s whereabouts since the ancient race had disappeared. Now that he could see Qin Hai alive and well, he was already satisfied. The true question of his was: “How did Qin Hai stay alive until now?” Even Xiong Er, with his long lifespan, was not able to survive time and had been forced to depart from this world.
A helpless expression appeared on Qin Hai’s face. “Oh… this. It might be related to this.” As he said this, he pointed at the diamond on his head. “This thing was granted by the Sage. From it, I can feel the power of time. The effect of time is greatly weakened on my body with this thing here.”
Chen Feng gasped in admiration. So magical? One had to know that the present Qin Hai merely looked somewhat older than the previous Qin Hai.
Chen Feng’s instinctive reaction was to touch this thing. “Let me take a look.”
“Don’t.” Qin Hai took a step back and stated in a somewhat awkward manner, “Erm, this thing is somewhat sensitive.”
“Fine.” Chen Feng clicked his tongue before saying, “I suppose, in the future, you can try some different positions with Lady Xiao Rou with this new sensitive spot on your body.”
Qin Hai: “…” It has been so many years. Why is this guy still so annoying?
As for Xiao Rou… Qin Hai’s eyes seemed to flicker at the thought of Xiao Rou.
Chen Feng was amazed. “What? You have yet to meet her?”
“I visited her once.” Qin Hai continued in a somewhat embarrassed manner, “Back then, she was still a newborn baby. I held her in my arms and had my face sprayed with her pee.”
“You two are truly a creative couple,” Chen Feng lamented. “Who knows what you did to her back then.”
Qin Hai: “…” He no longer felt like talking to this guy here.
“Let’s go. We can continue catching up after returning. You can go visit Xiao Rou as well.”
Chen Feng was thinking of bringing Qin Hai back. Unexpectedly, Qin Hai’s body did not move.
Chen Feng was curious. “What’s the matter?”
“I can’t.” Qin Hai shook his head, and he stared at the boundless dark sky. “Did you not feel it? Darkness… has descended upon us,” he stated with a trace of vastness and aged wisdom in his voice. No matter what, the present him was ultimately a person surpassing A class, a person who had surpassed his limit and broken through his previous bottleneck all those years ago.
The magnetic voice of Qin Hai echoed, “As the darkness descends, this great land will sink into an everlasting chaos.”
Chen Feng curled his lips. “So? Only those who have joined the diamond club can escape this calamity? I shall let you know that back then I was a VIP member as well!” 1
Worry was plastered all over Qin Hai’s face. He felt like beating this Chen Feng to death.
As he saw the grudging gaze of Qin Hai, Chen Feng admitted defeat. “Fine, fine. Continue your story.”
“I don’t have anything else to say,” Qin Hai grumbled. The atmosphere that he had tried so hard to create had been wiped clean by Chen Feng just like that. What else could he say?
“In short, back then, the Sage predicted that a huge calamity was going to fall and the entire world would sink into chaos. However, he couldn’t figure out the source of the calamity. As such, to avoid the calamity, he decided to start a war at an earlier date to destroy both the barbarians and the devil race. Unexpectedly, when they reached the devil race, he found that the devil race had already been destroyed.”
Chen Feng was surprised. “Destroyed?”
“Yes, destroyed,” Qin Hai stated with a solemn expression. “The Devil King killed off all his clansman, including himself!” Chapter 559: Fire Water Secret Grounds

‘My ultimate technique…Bare Nudeness…!’
Looking at Wan Wujun following the Thunder Trainer King into the academy, Lin Fan suddenly recalled this issue of unparalleled importance!
Why the hell had he bothered leaving Wan Wujun alive till the end?
It was all for that ultimate move, Bare Nudeness!
But now that Wan Wujun had been converted by this Thunder Trainer King, Lin Fan would definitely fight it out with the Thunder Trainer King if he couldn’t get a hold of that ultimate move later on.
Just as Lin Fan was busy contemplating about all this stuff, Fairy Hongyun’s face was completely petrified. Even though she had a wide knowledge about things, this was truly the first time she had encountered a realm like this!
A realm which possessed a consciousness of its own! How could this be possible? And, to think that there would be such a bizarre spirit residing within the realm!
But, little did Fairy Hongyun know that the Thunder Trainer King wasn’t the only spirit that was residing within the realm. There was also the spirit of Biggra, and all sorts of other nonsensical spirits.
This was a bloody strong realm, way too bloody strong!
At this moment, Lin Fan was trying to communicate telepathically with the Thunder Trainer King secretly, for him to hand over that ultimate move, Bare Nudeness.
This time around, the Thunder Trainer King had taken nearly every single benefit there was to it! Even though Lin Fan had killed 5 divine celestial level 1, True state beings, the experience points received were not much.
The thing that Lin Fan was coveting the most was that ultimate move of Wan Wujun.
And many of them were Tian Fa warriors, with a number of strange races experts as well.
This sight that could hardly be seen normally was extremely common right now!
It was as if the lives on both sides were no longer valuable, and everyone suddenly did not care about their lives as much as they thought they would…
In such an intense and merciless war, even the most cowardly soul here would turn into an indomitably courageous warrior!
And right now, the Tian Fa warriors had completely gone insane!
Most of the warriors from the Eagle and Bear army had already consumed their Heaven Reversal Pills!
Their violent nature as Xuan Beasts had already been thoroughly unleashed, and their bloody instincts were fully put to display in this war! There were constantly comrades falling before their eyes and brothers exploding into a rain of flesh and blood in the sky!
Such an intense battle caused everyone to lose their sense of reasoning!
Right now, there was only the enemy in their eyes! They only knew that they had to kill the enemies to take revenge for their fallen brothers!
At the back, the 100,000 strong strange races army had already surged up like a raging tide, riding their strangely shaped horses and barging into this meat grinder of a battlefield. With a force that numbered several tens to a hundred times that of their opponents, they completely drowned the Eagle and Bear army!
The fight with the Supremacy Enduring Heavens was still raging in the sky intensely! The five remaining Tian Fa Saint Venerables were unleashing a deadly battle with the five Supremacy Enduring Heavens.
The over 300 Frenzy Blade Enduring Earths had also plunged into the battlefield, shrieking and roaring fearsomely!
The addition of this group of Frenzy Blade Enduring Earths that was comparable to the Supremacy Enduring Heavens had dealt a huge blow to the Tian Fa army as well as huge amounts of pressure! The balance between the two sides had completely tilted!
Ever since this group of Frenzy Blade Enduring Earths entered the fight, the self detonation rate on the Tian Fa army’s side began to soar higher and higher! Only less than half of the original 6,000 warriors were remaining now!
Yet another thunderous boom rang out in the sky, and the might of the shockwave surged out, causing even the erupting volcanoes to tremble for a moment!
A look of grief appeared on Saint Venerable Lu’s face. Even without looking, just judging by the thunderous sound, he could tell that yet another old brother had left!
And perhaps today, or even the next moment, he would be following right after that old brother’s steps, treading onto the final stretch of his life!
But he believed even more intensely! Whether it was himself, or those old brothers of his and even every warrior below, none of them would feel any regrets!
Because, this was the legacy of Tian Fa that had been for 10,000 years!
This was for Tian Fa!
Not the continent!
Though the body may perish, the spirit shall last forever; never regret!
The Eagle King swooped around the battlefield, his sword dancing madly around him! Although his sword had been made specifically for him by Jun Mo Xie with the Power of Gold, it’d still been grounded to dust long ago from his frenzied hacking. Right now, this sword in his hand was already the fourth weapon he’d exchanged, and he’d already forgotten from whose hands he’d snatched it from!
The Eagle King had also consumed the Heaven Reversal Pill a long time ago! Right now, his body was covered in tens of wounds, many reaching deep to show bone. However, he didn’t seem to feel the pain as he rushed through the enemies madly like an insanely quick shooting star!
Only Big Bear was still swinging that 1,600 jin, ultra heavy long blade around! The only difference was that this blade was now being used as a large hammer! The edges of the blade were already filled with countless chips!
It was as if he didn’t know the word fatigue. That large body of his was like a crane amidst a flock of chickens as he waded through the tide of enemies. The defensive abilities of the Bear Tribe were undoubtedly obvious!
The morale boosting effect of this Bear King was enormous for the Tian Fa army. Whenever a Tian Fa warrior felt exhausted from killing, they only needed to look forward, and they would be able to see the tall body of Big Bear still standing straight, roaring ferociously as if he didn’t know how to be exhausted. Thereafter, everyone would feel an unknown strength rise up from the depths of their bodies!
And so, they would grip their swords and continue fighting, continued slaughtering the strange races!
This effect of the Bear King was something that the other Beast Kings could not imitate!
Because the Bear King was an existence that was born to battle!
That enormous body was as if he was a War God!
This time, none of the Hell Enduring Ghosts or Frenzy Blade Enduring Earths dared to use the Stealth Kills technique! This battle was no longer just a simple War for Seizing the Heavens with individual skirmishes. It was indeed true that the enemy could not see them when they turned invisible; however, their own comrades would similarly not be able to see them either!
On such a battlefield, both sides were already in a state of frenzy from killing, and everyone only had the thought that everyone else apart from themselves was an enemy! If they concealed themselves, they would definitely be unable to avoid the hail of swords, spears, blades, and sabers. That was simply taking their own lives as a joke.
And so, no matter how unwilling they were, they had to abandon the thought of any individual fighting and instead participate in a large scale chaotic battle!
In the air, Saint Venerable Lu dragged his crippled body and charged madly towards the enemy Supremacy Enduring Heavens in front of him. His right leg had already disappeared at an unknown time!
As for who it was that had chopped it off, that was no longer important to Saint Venerable Lu!
The enemy facing him also roared savagely as he pounced forward to meet him!
Thirteen of them had come out together this time to obtain the first major contribution to the war!
A force of 13 Supremacy Enduring Heavens, just what kind of power was this? But to think that they had actually been stopped here by an ambush from Tian Fa’s Saint Venerables!
If it was an ambush by the three Holy Lands, they had complete confidence that they would definitely be able to overcome it. However, although these Tian Fa Saint Venerables were fighting in human form, they were truly a group of Xuan Beasts deep in their bones!
Even before reaching the Saint Venerable realm, a Beast King’s defensive abilities and offensive strength were already much stronger than the humans of those three Holy Lands.
Through this battle, their side’s 13 brothers were only left with two now!
And they were all heavily injured, with greatly diminished strength!
Although they were also only two remaining from the eight Saint Venerables, and they looked even more pathetic than them, these two Supremacy Enduring Heavens still felt like crying though they lacked tears!
Thirteen people against eight, and every single one of them had strength equivalent to two Saint Venerables. In essence, it was a force with three times the strength of their opponent. However, the final result actually turned out like this? Thoughts of a Shawty Wannabe Before they came out, none of them would have ever imagined that such a result would be possible!
Roaring madly, he lunged towards Saint Venerable Lu. Right now, this Supremacy Enduring Heavens could already see that this terrifying old deer was most likely the leader of this Tian Fa army! All these schemes and calculations should most likely be his doing as well!
And because of this hateful wild beast, eleven of his brothers had already been thoroughly destroyed in body and soul! They didn’t even have the chance for a rebirth anymore!
Even if he died, he must drag this detestable old deer down with him!
That lunge of his fell directly into Saint Venerable Lu’s wishes!
Adding in this fellow before him, he’d already killed three Supremacy Enduring Heavens. That was a good enough profit!
Even if he died, he would be at ease!
The two drew closer to each other, both their eyes blazing with determination and madness!
The both of them no longer had any weapons right now. Even a more sturdy weapon would have been destroyed long ago in a clash between Saint Venerable level existences! The both of them were charging at each other with bare fists.
In the instant that the two’s bodies collided, the two of them made the exact same choice-self detonation!
With a thunderous boom, the two’s crashed into each other. Following that, a heaven rending tremor surged out!
The two Saint Venerable experts had chosen to ignite their remaining life force and spirit power! None of them had planned on returning alive. The only thing they were afraid of was that the other party didn’t die. Not even leaving behind the slightest energy to leave a Holy Infant, the most dazzling explosion lit up the sky!
This was the entirety of the two’s soul’s strength, leaving the most glorious spark of brilliance on this world!
A powerful shockwave surged out and within a range of several hundred zhang, even the ground beneath them was swept clean! A full seven, eight thousand, nearly 10,000 people of both sides battling below, were sent flying away like rubber balls. Quite a number of unlucky bastards were directly turned into a lump of blood and flesh, being scattered far away…
“ELDEST BROTHER!!!” Saint Venerable Bear roared with grief, his mind suddenly turning blank!
For 2,000 years, these eight brothers had lived together, fought together, grown up together, ate the Thousand Evils and Ten Thousand Poisons Fruit together, fought in two War for Seizing the Heavens, fought against the Nine Nether Fourteenth Young Master, been sealed into the Nine Nethers Land for many years together…
The eight of them had traversed the mortal world together back when they were young; what manner of glorious affair had it been? And how loud was the fame of the Eight Great Saints of Tian Fa? Who in this world dared to look them in the eye?
If one of the brothers were bullied or suffered any wrongs, the others would surely back him up!
Right now, apart from himself, the other seven brothers had all perished in this war, dying without complete corpses!
From youth till old men, when had they parted? How could they part? They couldn’t bear to part ah!
Even if there’s only the Yellow Springs before my eyes, even if there’s only darkness and emptiness before my eyes, I still want to accompany my brothers!
If anyone dares to bully them, I will still take action! I will use my life to defend them! No matter when, no matter if it’s the physical body, or the soul!
Saint Venerable Bear turned his head and looked resolutely at the only remaining Supremacy Enduring Heavens!
Both his eyes were as red as blood, and his face was twitching insanely.
“Come on then!” Saint Venerable Bear said expressionlessly. “Hurry up! Don’t delay the reunion time of us brothers!” When he mentioned the word brothers, his eyes turned even more fiery. The faces of his seven brothers appeared one after the other before Saint Venerable Bear’s eyes, before dissipating into the distance.
Saint Venerable Bear seemed to be able to sense the departure of his brothers, and an intense pain surged through heart. With a hoarse voice that came from his lungs and throat, he screamed: “WAIT FOR ME!”
That roar was reminiscent of when his brothers pretended to have left him behind back when they were roaming the pugilistic world in the past, the same panic in his voice back then!
It was still the same as last time! Brothers, wait for me! Let’s go together!
No matter what we’re doing! No matter living… or dead! Together! I will leave I Kinda Came to Another World alone for a little to see if anyone wants to pick it up. This is another teaser.

The one I faced in the mansion’s courtyard was my sister.
A perfect existence.
If someone out there were to be completely loved by god, it would probably be someone like her.
(Why did it come to this)
I hold my breath, and gripped the sabre I held in one arm with both of my hands. The tip of it was shaking.
It wasn’t just fatigue. The emotion of fear was also apparent in the blade.
The sabre in my hands was real. My sister’s rapier was real as well. For us to be seriously going at each other with weapons, I never would have thought it sane.
However, the one to propose this duel was, undoubtedly, her.
Wearing a dress, she spoke as she looked at me without any interest.
“Are you still going to continue this, onii-sama?”
While she called me onii-sama now, she usually doesn’t even call my name. ‘You,’ ‘that thing,’ and other such phrases were how she usually referred to me.
But no one in the surroundings ever found fault in that.
She wore an ivory-colored dress and red shoes. Even though we were both exchanging slashes, unlike me, she wasn’t sweating at all.
As if she was going to head off somewhere formal, her outfit was well in order. The rapier that sister held in her hands was an article made by a skilled craftsman.
It was adorned with ornaments, and the hilt was inlaid with a yellow orb. The gem that couldn’t be made anymore in the current era was a special tool that brings forth special Skills.
The rapier it had been inserted into was a Magic Item, a weapon called a Magic Sword. It was a rare good that couldn’t be bought even with a hundred gold coins.
With the sword in hand as a mismatch with her appearance, my sister’s standing figure was in a mess.
This year, she was to turn thirteen. Flowing, golden hair waved on her head. Her figure was, unbefitting of her age, quite voluptuous.
Her blue eyes stared at me coldly.
Chills raced down my spine.
OneHeadShotWithoutExplanation asked out of wonder, “What does that mean?”
IChooseDogLeading answered matter-of-factly, “I like failure. It allows me to grow stronger. If failing 10,000 times allows me to progress a centimeter, I would have earned the greatest riches! Conversely, if I were to run now, that would be me losing big.”
OneHeadShotWithoutExplanation was stunned. He could not help but recall a similar conversation from his past, with that man who was like a god.
He once asked, “Senior Yaris, why…why do you insist on challenging our teacher even after failing so many times? You should know…that you have no hope at all.”
The man answered him, “It’s because I like failure. It allows me to grow stronger.”
OneHeadShotWithoutExplanation lowered his head slightly. An imperceptible smile secretly bloomed under his skull mask.
So that was the reason.
The answer was actually as simple as that.
“Entering the final countdown. 5, 4, 3, 2, 1-Battle begins!”
The moment the system’s voice finished speaking, OneHeadShotWithoutExplanation suddenly looked up. He straightened his right arm and pulled the trigger!
A gunshot rang!
“The battle is over. OneHeadShotWithoutExplanation wins. Time used 1 second.”
One second, that was OneHeadShotWithoutExplanation’s final question.
“Player IChooseDogLeading is ready. Do you want to begin the match?”
IChooseDogLeading only used half a second to choose to continue once again.
Half a second. That was his answer from the very beginning.
Author’s Note: Damn it, don’t you hate smurfs while playing games? Hehe, what would be your choice when you meet a smurf?
1. Since this is a modern world, and they are playing a game, modern slang is used. A ‘smurf’ is a (usually) experienced gamer posing as a newbie under an alternate name. Chapter 66: You should become such a Crab!
The hundredth headshot, the hundredth drawing and holstering, the hundredth victory without any suspense was followed by the 101th time of hearing the system say, “Player IChooseDogLeading is ready. Do you want to begin the match?”
OneHeadShotWithoutExplanation was tired, but he had also eased up.
“You have used a hundred defeats to win my respect.”
OneHeadShotWithoutExplanation gave a wry laugh. As he looked at the figure moving around using his ridiculous Crab Steps in an attempt to dodge his bullets, he did not immediately lift his Explosive Spirit Rifle. Instead, he said loudly, “Are you an idiot? Don’t you know how to use fake moves? By using Crab Steps every time in such a habitual manner, are you afraid others can’t anticipate your motion’s trajectory? Can you be any more dumb?”
The harsh diatribe caused Shi Xiaobai’s figure to pause for a moment, but it only paused for half a second before he carried on using his Crab Steps. This time, Shi Xiaobai’s motions were clearly extremely stiff, as though he was attempting to resist moving in a habitual manner and fake his motions, but it ended up looking inept and appeared rather jerky.
OneHeadShotWithoutExplanation shook his head and then lifted the gun in his hand.
A gunshot rang, and Shi Xiaobai fell to the ground as though it was in response to it. The system’s announcing the end of the match rang immediately after that.
Accompanying that was OneHeadShotWithoutExplanation’s fury abuse.
“Use your left foot as your right foot, understand? Do not keep reminding yourself to make fake moves. If you can’t even fool yourself, how can you fool others? Fake moves are not moves that you deliberately do. You must fool your opponent, making him think that your fake move is a real move. If you can’t even create confusion by passing off the spurious as genuine, how do you become stronger?”
OneHeadShotWithoutExplanation sneered, “Claims of weaklings always sound good, but the reason why weaklings are weaklings is because they only know how to talk.”
Shi Xiaobai did not retort, he only shouted, “Again!”
The 133rd battle.
This was the first time OneHeadShotWithoutExplanation did something different when he pulled the trigger. It was because Shi Xiaobai’s fake move nearly fooled him.
Although it was the same headshot as before, he took six seconds to end this battle.
OneHeadShotWithoutExplanation was stunned for a few moments before he shouted loudly once again, “Crab Steps is not just simple jumping from left to right. It’s not some exercise for the masses! The key is to constantly vary your speed. Do you understand? Accelerate, decelerate, the variability in speed. You are not dancing, there is no rhythm, nor should there be one. You must trust your heartbeat. When your heart beats faster, you must change your speed, doing a sudden explosive move, or suddenly stop. From the fastest to the slowest, you must become an emotionally irritable but calm crab, do you understand? You idiot!”
Shi Xiaobai dazed for a few seconds before taking a deep breath and said loudly, “Again!”
The 212nd battle.
This time, OneHeadShotWithoutExplanation took more than ten seconds to lock onto Shi Xiaobai’s figure. The crab’s constant fake moves and its variable speed made him hesitate for the first time.
This was because when Shi Xiaobai made an action to jump to the left, his body could very well move to the right. When he retracted his right foot, his left foot would tap the ground in the opposite direction, finally succeeding in the stiff motion of moving in the opposite direction.
When his movement speed was extremely fast, he could suddenly stop the very next second, surprising his opponent. When he was jumping at a slow and relaxed pace, his opponent might think that he had locked onto his trajectory, but Shi Xiaobai would suddenly burst forward with an astounding acceleration. It was like a loach that fled from one’s grasp.
Without a doubt, Shi Xiaobai’s improvement was progressing at an extremely fast pace.
However OneHeadShotWithoutExplanation still felt that it was far from enough.
“Compared to that man, it’s still a great distance away.”
Comparing this guy who was at the third level of the Psionic Mortal Realm with that god-like man was itself a ridiculous matter, but for some reason, OneHeadShotWithoutExplanation found it a natural comparison.
Perhaps it was because they used the same Crab Steps, or perhaps it was because they said the same words?
OneHeadShotWithoutExplanation did not know the answer because the answer was buried deep in his heart, so deep that he could not see it for himself. He only knew…that he had to do it this way!
After he caught the instance of regularity, and judged the stiffness at the next moment, he made his shot.
Once again, Shi Xiaobai had his head exploded.
OneHeadShotWithoutExplanation immediately said loudly, “You must become a twisted crab. It’s not only footwork. Your body, your bones, your every cell needs to know how to twist and change. The essence of Crab Steps is not to repeat lateral jumps or lateral movement. It is about its freedom, how it is completely unrestricted! Do not be afraid of its funny and ridiculous moves because Crab Steps itself is ridiculous enough! Discard all your emotions of embarrassment. As long as you can dodge an attack, do that humiliating action for me!”
Once again, Shi Xiaobai fell into a moment of silence before he said solemnly, “Again!”
The 356th time.
OneHeadShotWithoutExplanation said, “Create an illusion of step distance and movement distance, do you understand? Only an idiot would maintain a fixed distance between their footsteps! True Crab Steps might take a small step, but can travel dozens of meters. Maybe the legs might open widely, but the body would only move a few centimeters! You must know how to use your Psionic Power. Your movement is not reliant on your feet but your Psionic Power. The timing of the release of your Psionic Power, the magnitude and the duration of it determines the distance you travel. And your body should not do an instinctive response to this distance. Discard that darn instinct of yours, you pig!”
Shi Xiaobai shouted once again, “Again!”
The 510th time.
OneHeadShotWithoutExplanation said, “Turning, moving laterally, moving backwards, moving forwards, these motions are your most important weapons, but they should not be abused. You must use it at the most critical moment. Crab Steps are not rigid left and right motions. Also, what about your shield? Are you dumb? Dodging isn’t the complete avoidance of an attack. At times, grasping the weakest point of an attack and defending against it is also considered dodging! Do you understand? True defense is shielding as well as dodging! It has already been more than 500 rounds, yet you haven’t realized this. You hopeless fool!”
Shi Xiaobai shouted once again, “Again!”
Perhaps it was the 800th time or it might have exceeded a thousand, or maybe…
OneHeadShotWithoutExplanation was already too lazy to count. He had also turned silent for a very long time. This was because he no longer had anything he could teach Shi Xiaobai. He had previously analyzed that god-like man’s Crab Steps like a madman, but all he had was theorycraft. And today, Shi Xiaobai had managed to put his theorycraft into action after failure after failure. However, he was still tender and weak.
But many of OneHeadShotWithoutExplanation’s firsts had been claimed by Shi Xiaobai.
The first time he took more than 20 seconds to end a battle.
The first time he ended the battle after a gap of 100 meters was achieved.
The first time he could not be bothered to holster his rifle after winning.
The first time he was forced to use gun offensive skills by a child at the third level of the Psionic Mortal Realm.
The first time…
The first time OneHeadShotWithoutExplanation learned that this world truly had such a fool. The fool endured more than a thousand times of failure, accepting relentless diatribes, so as to resolutely march towards his goal.
The fool was constantly changing, constantly becoming stronger and constantly surpassing himself.
“This is their answer. From the beginning to the end, that firm and resolute answer.”
OneHeadShotWithoutExplanation had this thought in mind as he lifted his arm, prepared to end this match.
Suddenly, he was surprised. This was because he actually failed to completely lock onto the crab’s trajectory.
A small step traversed more than a dozen meters.
A big step was taken but he retreated by a few centimeters.
Acceleration, deceleration, the fake movements of jumping left and right, his body moving forward and backwards, even to the point of his body twisting into distorted postures.
And the most surprising thing was that extremely solid Wavelet Shield that was the size of a small medal. The shield would occasionally appear, materializing and dissipating, as though it could appear in front of the bullet at any time.
Shi Xiaobai’s figure suddenly moved to a distance just dozens of meters away from him during his moment of hesitation.
This distance was very dangerous.
For OneHeadShotWithoutExplanation, it was very dangerous.
But for Shi Xiaobai, it was even more dangerous!
This was because the closer the distance, the harder it was to dodge. He was facing an assault rifle that was adept at shooting in close range!
A gunshot rang.
The bullet finally managed to catch the fleeing Shi Xiaobai, and followed closely behind his figure like a maggot in a tarsal bone.
The bullet was blocked by a thick Wavelet Shield, but the bullet was a C Class offensive skill “Wraith Bullet”. It instantly pierced through the shield, penetrating Shi Xiaobai’s head.
“You are improving very fast, but you are still somewhat lacking.”
OneHeadShotWithoutExplanation sighed. Suddenly his pupils constricted violently. This was because he did not hear the system announcing the end of the match!
The battle was not over!
Upon realizing this, OneHeadShotWithoutExplanation immediately looked up. He saw the Shi Xiaobai with the headshot melt away under the sunlight, while the sound of a series of quickened footsteps came from his right. He turned to see Shi Xiaobai using Crab Steps about to reach his side.
OneHeadShotWithoutExplanation exclaimed in surprise. This guy actually managed to figure out Crab Phantom Image himself!? He subconsciously raised his hand to shoot again. At this distance, even if Shi Xiaobai had grasped phantom image evasion, it was impossible for him to dodge his Wraith bullet.
This AK Explosive Spirit Rifle was an assault rifle best for closed quarters combat.
“Some people are destined to succeed because they can tolerate the countless failures. They are able to endure hardship to obtain success amidst failure.”
OneHeadShotWithoutExplanation sighed. Against a young guy who was at the third level of the Psionic Mortal Realm, not being able to shoot him in the head with a single shot was his failure. That was a thorough and irrefutable defeat.
The black-dressed elder knew deeply that he was absolutely no match for Lin Xintong.
In a warrior’s world, the strong were respected. Under such circumstances, the second chair was only right for Lin Xintong.
How would he have the guts to compete with Lin Xintong? Without strength, if he were to bite the bullet and fight Lin Xintong over the seat, even members of the Human race would think that he was not qualified.
Hence, he could only watch helplessly as Lin Xintong calmly sat beside Yi Yun.
The black-dressed elder’s face had turned completely black.
At this moment, Cang Yan and company, who had witnessed all of this not far away, finally understood one thing thoroughly. It was a matter that seemed completely unimaginable and unbelievable.
That was that Yi Yun and Lin Xintong had extraordinary status. Even their strength, for some particular reason, had reached the peak of the standards of the Tian Yuan world!
Yi Yun and Lin Xintong had not only been given Empyreal King titles already, and they were amongst the cream of the crop amongst Empyreal Kings. In front of the two of them, the black-dressed elder could not even bring himself to make a fuss.
Just as the black-dressed elder was feeling extremely embarrassed, the former Desolate Queen gestured to a Desolate race soldier, who slowly brought a second chair over.
This chair was only placed at a corner by the meeting table.
The Strongest Shinobi “Mystic Tiger Immortal, you don’t mind sitting over there, right?” The former Desolate Queen said nonchalantly.
There was a lazy and derisive smile hanging on her face. Mystic Tiger was the black-dressed elder’s title. It was obtained from the form of his Aspect Totem.
The former Desolate Queen did not have a good impression of this black-dressed old man.
The black-dressed elder grunted. He was about to flick his sleeves to leave, but he knew that if he were to leave in a fit at this moment, it was even more shameful. Besides, the negotiations between the Human and Desolate race were not over.
He could only endure the grievance that he had and sit down. However, he no longer had the formidable stance to break out his Aspect Totem.
“Mystic Tiger. Don’t mind it. We are now more vulnerable. So what if we let them be all high and mighty at this meeting. Besides, the Black-armored Demon God is about to arrive soon. Jiang Xiaorou has been locked on to by the Black-armored Demon God, and she basically has her name struck off from the Book of Life and Death. So how long can the Desolate race remain haughty? Besides, would that Yi Yun ignore Jiang Xiaorou? If he doesn’t, I want to see how he protects her!”
While the black-dressed elder was feeling aggrieved, a Yuan Qi transmission echoed in his ears.
The person who transmitted the voice was another Tian Yuan Elder Consortium member.
More than half a year ago, Yi Yun had been invited to Greatsword Mountain, and he had witnessed Yi Yun’s strength. He naturally did not wish Yi Yun, who would easily be in control of his life, to mature.
Mystic Tiger snorted and transmitted his voice, saying, “You are right. I want to see how much longer they can remain haughty. That Desolate race witch girl won’t be able to live past the next few days. If only the Desolate race and Yi Yun would perish together!”
As Mystic Tiger had such thoughts, he hatefully glanced at Yi Yun. If Yi Yun perished in an internecine struggle, Yi Yun, the Desolate race and the Black-armored Demon God would all be destroyed in one go. It would be a joyous occasion.
Of course, he was only thinking. He knew very well that the Black-armored Demon God’s strength was tremendously strong. It would be nearly impossible for Yi Yun and the Desolate race to perish together with him.
Yi Yun could sense Mystic Tiger’s animosity. After gaining Dao-enlightenment in the Pure Yang Sword Palace, Yi Yun felt that everything around him was in his control. He did not even need to look over with his eyes.
“Young master Yi, ever since our separation at Greatsword Mountain, it has been less than ten months. Yet to meet Young master Yi today again, your strength have improved once again. It’s really unbelievable.” The Sanctuary Island’s Island Lord spoke to Yi Yun politely.
As Yi Yun conversed happily with the Sanctuary Island couple, he engaged in a voice transmission with Jiang Xiaorou.
He had to understand the background of the negotiations. In a few words, Jiang Xiaorou had told him everything that had happened.
When he heard that Jiang Xiaorou was being locked onto by the Black-armored Demon God, Yi Yun’s heart tightened. “Sis Xiaorou, why is the Black-armored Demon God locking onto you?”
“I do not know either.” Jiang Xiaorou sighed. She felt her own existence brought the Desolate race and Yi Yun a great deal of trouble.
For Yi Yun to arrive in the remote mountains now, Jiang Xiaorou inevitably felt happy, but she also felt even more worried.
Back when the Black-armored Demon God invaded the Desolate race’s headquarters, they had only managed to escape with the Sacred Spirit’s resistance.
Back then, Jiang Xiaorou had left a message to Yi Yun before evacuating, telling Yi Yun their direction of escape.
But following that, the situation had changed. The Black-armored Demon God followed closely behind and it had locked onto Jiang Xiaorou. This caused the Desolate race to begin their second escape. At that moment, Jiang Xiaorou did not wish for Yi Yun to be in the remote mountains.
Up to now, Jiang Xiaorou could faintly feel the Black-armored Demon God’s vague spiritual lock onto her. Maybe in the next second, the Black-armored Demon God would suddenly arrive!
The Human race could also sense that the Black-armored Demon God’s next attack would happen in the very near future. Hence, their negotiations with the Desolate race had turned so intense.
The Human race had no way to request the Desolate race to do anything for them, but it was not like the Human race did not have anything. Chapter 713: Shepherd Boy’s Compromise
The Human race gathered in the remote mountains were quite a force to be reckoned. If the Human race could aid the Desolate race, then there might be a slim chance for the Desolate race to resist against the Black-armored Demon God, and turn the tables.
For a group of weaklings to face a mighty force was analogous to a herd of sheep resisting a tiger. Under normal circumstances, no matter how many sheep went forward, they would all end up dead. The differences between the two was an insurmountable gap. It was not something that volume could make up for.
The Human and Desolate races were in a similar situation against the Black-armored Demon God.
In a direct clash between a herd of sheep with a tiger, they were bound to fail!
The only thing that could narrow the gap between the two was to gather the weaklings’ powers together, and that was with an array formation!
With a top array formation technique, the sheep’s energy could be gathered together, causing harm to the tiger.
In the field of formation arrays, the Human race had a greater attainment in it than the Desolate race.
The Desolate race was adept at controlling desolate beasts, while the Human race had greater attainment in alchemy and array formations. Besides, they had a Cosmic Infinite Array, whose level in array formation refinement far exceeded the the Tian Yuan world’s Human race’s standards.
The Cosmic Infinite Array came from Blood Moon, and it was an array formation passed down since ancient times.
In its most powerful form, it needed eight Empyreal Kings and 64 Sages to control it.
Once it was activated, it could stir the cosmos and cause disturbance in the Yin and Yang!
In the Divine Wilderness, the Human race had once used the Cosmic Infinite Array against the Black-armored Demon God by activating it with five top Human race powerhouses. Although it failed to injure the Black-armored Demon God, it had managed to trap the Black-armored Demon God for a period of time, saving the lives of the factions’ elites.
The Desolate race craved this array formation greatly!
Without the array formation, a group of unfocused Desolate race experts entering a head on clash with the Black-armored Demon God would just be charging to their deaths.
Open a Clinic to Cultivate Myself However, how could the Human race agree to the Desolate race’s request?
This Cosmic Infinite Array contained very profound and intricate nomological Dao runes. To produce a replica? Difficult!
Especially with the Black-armored Demon God running amok, it became even more important.
This array was the crutch that the Human race was relying on to resist the Black-armored Demon God, so how would they be willing to hand it over to the Desolate race?
The Desolate race suggested that they were willing to send a Desolate race Empyreal King and a Primordial True Spirit to send the Human race out of the remote mountains, and ensure their safety. And this array formation was just to be borrowed.
But even so, the Human race scoffed at it. Borrow it? What if the array flags and array disks were destroyed by the Black-armored Demon God?
By leaving behind the Cosmic Infinite Array, that was equivalent to handing over the sharpest knife in their hands. Ignoring their future clashes with the Black-armored Demon God, this would cause the Human race to lack the ability to resist the Desolate race as well.
Hence, there was a conflict surrounding the terms and conditions.
Against the Black-armored Demon God’s battle, regardless of the outcome, the Desolate race would make the greatest sacrifice. As for the Black-armored Demon God, it was not only the enemy of the Desolate race, but also the enemy of the Human race.
The former Desolate Queen could imagine how when they were fighting the Black-armored Demon God to the death, the Human race would be hiding by the side watching the fight in a joyous manner. They would look forward to such a battle, hoping that the Desolate race would destroy the Black-armored Demon God, while losing all the elites in their race.
The former Desolate Queen knew about the Human race’s thoughts, so how could she just watch her own people die for the Human race?
They were Desolate race. For their mission, honor or Jiang Xiaorou, they could fight to the death, but why should the Desolate race sacrifice for the benefit of the Human race? There was even the possibility of them taking the opportunity to wipe out the Desolate race after a victorious battle.
The Tian Yuan world’s Cosmic Infinite Array was the terms proposed by the former Desolate Queen.
The Human race could leave, and the Desolate race would send Empyreal Kings to escort them, so as to ensure the safety of the Human race, but the Cosmic Infinite Array had to be left behind.
The intense disagreement resulted in the legendary human figures springing back. They were at an impasse, because the legendary human figures proposed even more conditions for exchange.
And these conditions were things that the Desolate race could not accept.
What the Human race needed now most was combat strength, so as to ensure that they would survive.
They suggested that three Desolate race Empyreal Kings should control three Primordial True Spirits to fight for the Human race.
To bind these Desolate race Empyreal Kings, a soul contract was naturally needed. And this was not just any ordinary soul contract. It was the most overbearing kind that was as close to a slave contract, which could control one’s thoughts.
Only with such a contract would the Human race feel assured, or the conditions would become empty clauses.
With three Desolate race Empyreal Kings and three Primordial True Spirits, it was equivalent to the joining of three Empyreal King level experts. It could barely make up their loses. Their array refinement masters were also studying the Cosmic Infinite Array. In the future, they might be able to make a replica. Although it would not be as powerful as the original one, they might be able to set up a few and use them.
And this condition had annoyed the Desolate race. Be it the Desolate race or the Human race, an Empyreal King was a mighty figure that stood up high, being able to rule over a race’s destiny.
So to let an Empyreal King be a slave?
That was an insult!
Besides, by losing three Empyreal Kings and three Primordial True Spirits, it would result in it being a much more difficult battle against the Black-armored Demon God.
So how could the Desolate race agree to it?
What made the Desolate race and the former Desolate Queen unable to accept and be infuriated was that amongst the three Empyreal Kings that the Human race requested to be enslaved, Shepherd Boy’s name was top on the list!
They actually had their sights on Shepherd Boy!
Shepherd Boy was a supernatural existence amongst the Desolate race, second to the Desolate Queen. He was extremely loyal and he had fought the Tian Yuan world for the Desolate race and retrieved Jiang Xiaorou. He had great achievements in battle with all sorts of honors bestowed to him.
Be it the members of the Desolate race, the former Desolate Queen or Jiang Xiaorou, they did not treat Shepherd Boy as an ordinary member of the Desolate race.
Even externally, to the humans, Shepherd Boy’s name was extremely famous.
By listing Shepherd Boy, the Human race clearly did not only covet Shepherd Boy’s strength, they also had the intention to seek revenge!
By letting the extremely proud Shepherd Boy become their slave was more tormentous than killing him.
The former Desolate Queen flatly rejected this request.
However, the Human race’s response was extremely adamant. By not agreeing to this request, there was no need for the discussion of the array disk.
At the beginning of the dispute, Shepherd Boy had remained silent, listening to the debates from both sides.
He had lived for a very long time. He had seen how numerous people had looked at him with gazes filled with hate or fear. There was once that he was the representation of the Desolate race amongst the Human race. He was terrifying, powerful and unsympathetic.
Such a Shepherd Boy, be it himself, or others, would never believe that he would be willing to be a slave.
But now, after the debate went on for an hour, to the point of a complete breakdown in negotiations, Shepherd Boy suddenly stood up.
He minced his words clearly and said, “Only I alone will sign the contract, and I will fight for you for a thousand years.”
He did not say much, but the words that Shepherd Boy said were not something that simple.
Shepherd Boy had bowed down.
With the existence of a foreign enemy, the Desolate race could not destroy the Human race who had the Cosmic Infinite Array, so as to rob them of the array disks. Then… the only way was to compromise.
For a Desolate race Empyreal King like Shepherd Boy, who treated his honor like his life, he would rather die in a glorious battle than sign a enslaving contract, becoming a puppet of the Human race.
But now, for Jiang Xiaorou and for his race, this was the first time Shepherd Boy had lowered his proud head in more than tens of thousands of years. He had to endure such a great humiliation.
Jiang Xiaorou and the former Desolate Queen had mixed emotions to Shepherd Boy’s yielding. This pain was indescribable.
However, the Human race did not appreciate the Shepherd Boy’s sacrifice.
This was because just Shepherd Boy’s combat power alone was not worthy enough for a Cosmic Infinite Array that could gather the Human race’s Empyreal King’s powers.
At this moment, the former Desolate Queen had reached her limits and she was on the brink of flaring up.
As for the Human race, they did not wish to be outdone. Mystic Tiger Immortal suddenly released his Aspect Totem, pitting himself against the Desolate race!
From the moment Longze Jing Tian appeared, he (FC) felt the way this man looked at Murong Qi Qi was very different. As a man, meeting a woman he liked and how he looked at her, Feng Cang had already experienced it. So, he understood.
Although Li Yun Qing’s gaze was also not right, but he didn’t express it. Longze Jing Tian looked like someone who had their favorite toy taken away and was now feeling regret. There’s a strong predatory taste. It’s a gaze of when a hunter encountered a prey! Could it be that he regretted it? However, now Murong Qi Qi was his wangfei. This shameless person. He wanted to incite disharmony in their relationship!
TL note: At first, I thought a literary challenge was like competing with poems or something like that. But it turned out that literary challenge was also about fighting. The only difference is that literary challenge doesn’t use inner energy and martial arts challenge does. Chapter 86 The duel of life and death (2)
Not waiting for Longze Jing Tian to say more nonsense, Feng Cang gave him who was standing in the middle, a kick and pulled Murong Qi Qi into his arms. He used action to show ownership of this woman.
“Jing wang, please mind your words a bit. First of all, princess Zhao Yang is benwang’s wangfei. This fact will never change. Benwang will cherish her like how I cherish my eyes. Don’t need you to worry about it. Second, this is princess Zhao Yang’s and Guli’s duel. Benwang as princess Zhao Yang’s husband will wholeheartedly support and believe her. Benwang won’t doubt any decision princess Zhao Yang makes. Third, no matter how benwang is, Jing wang can’t control it. She is benwang’s wangfei. Jing wang, please remember your identity.”
Feng Cang’s words were overbearing and arrogant. Immediately, Longze Jing Tian’s expression turned bad. However, what can he do? It’s him who gave up on Murong Qi Qi. It’s he who personally pushed Murong Qi Qi to others. All fault lay on him and has nothing to do with others.
It’s just, he couldn’t accept it, he just couldn’t accept it!
The strange atmosphere between the two wang’s spread out. A smoke of a fight will break out made the whole scene exceptionally quiet. Everyone stared at Feng Cang and Longze Jing Tian.
These two, one is Bei Zhou’s Nan Lin wang; the other is Xi Qi’s Jing wang. Their relation became so troubled, was actually because of princess Zhao Yang, making everyone’s gaze once again fell onto Murong Qi Qi.
Features are ordinary, medium pretty. What does she have to let two of the world’s most outstanding men have a dispute because of her? Could it be that now the taste of men changed? Now they like the ones like Murong Qi Qi?
The people at the scene have heard about the matter of Murong Qi Qi being rejected. It’s this Jing wang who wrote the breaking engagement letter. Collecting Figurines in the Apocalypse But now looking at him, could he has regretted? However, in the world there’s no medicine for regret! Not to mention, everyone could see the love in Feng Cang’s and Murong Qi Qi’s eyes. What did Longze Jing Tian mean by this? Want to slander Feng Cang’s reputation to get the beauty’s heart? This thing is not easy to handle!
The atmosphere became awkward because of the two’s dispute. Just as when everyone was waiting to see how Longze Jing Tian will continue to ‘protect’ Murong Qi Qi, Murong Qi Qi kowtowed slightly at Longze Jing Tian: “Thanking Jing wang for your care! It’s just I accepted this duel willingly and has nothing to do with wangye. Asking Jing wang to not misunderstand wangye because of me.”
Murong Qi Qi’s attitude was very clear. Every sentence was protecting Feng Cang. The tangling hearts of the commoners were now completely relaxed. That’s right! No matter how good Jing wang is, how could he be better than their wangye?! Princess Zhao Yang has good eyes!
Everyone forgot about those rumors of Feng Cang. To the people, this is a battle for princess Zhao Yang’s hand between Bei Zhou’s and Xi Qi’s wangye. As Bei Zhou’s citizens, naturally they hope Feng Cang wins. This is now related to the nation’s sense of honor. And now, Murong Qi Qi’s resolute attitude made the good feelings people have for her went to a level higher!
The battle between the two men ended with Feng Cang winning the beauty! The couple, Feng Cang and Murong Qi Qi, already got the recognition of the people. And this, made Guli extremely upset. She couldn’t help but knock on the table with the hilt of her dagger.
“Hey, hey, hey, are we still dueling or not? Don’t waste my time!”
“Duel,” Feng Cang and Murong Qi Qi said at the same time. Murong Qi Qi signed her name and put a thump print on the life and death agreement. Then she handed the agreement at Guli. Guli swept over it once and humphed coldly. She also wrote her name and put her print on it.
“Let’s go out and duel. Here, there are too many people and the place is too narrow. It won’t be good if we injure an innocent person.”
After saying that, Murong Qi Qi walked to the outside. Guli has no requirements for the site, so she also went out.
Princess Zhao Yang and Nan Feng’s participant would duel spread throughout Cyclamen and the surroundings shop. Everyone flicked to the streets to watch. looking at the two women in red, the commoners began to talk about them.
“I heard princess Zhao Yang doesn’t know martial arts. Now she signed the agreement between life and death, what will she do later? Is there now not only death waiting for her?”
“Wangye finally encountered a woman he loves, how would he let something happen to her?! Rest assured, wangye will certainly help her!”
“Although princess Zhao Yang is not as beautiful as that prostitute, but she’s more pleasing to the eyes. I still hope princess Zhao Yang wins!”
Guli’s hearing is not bad. Obviously, the evaluation the people has for Murong Qi Qi was higher than hers. Also, there were some people wishing for Murong Qi Qi to win. This point let her particularly not happy. How could she lost to a rubbish?! Absolutely impossible!
The streets were covered with a thick layer of snow. Murong Qi Qi and Guli were only ten meters apart. Both were in red. However, Guli looked hot and seductive, while Murong Qi Qi looked like a red flower in the snow with a very noble aura.
A long voice let all the onlookers quieted down. The duel was about to begin. Everyone’s heart was like in their throats and wanted to see what the result of this duel will be. Although everyone hoped for Murong Qi Qi to win, but the reality was not controlled by people’s mind.
Guli’s weapon is a two-edged sword which was black without a trace of decoration. It’s a very good sword. And Murong Qi Qi’s weapon was just a red muslin.
When Murong Qi Qi took out her weapon, everyone was startled.
The opponent is using a good sword, why did Murong Qi Qi came out with a red muslin? Can this soft muslin be able to withstand a sword?
Seeing Murong Qi Qi’s ‘weapon’, Guli laughed.
“Lady, this is a duel and not a dance show. You came up with a muslin; is it that you are half-heartedly having this duel or is it that you’re playing a joke on me?”
“Just now, I said your head has a problem, it indeed has a problem! Being halfhearted or playing a joke, is this not in your advantage?! Dealing with you, a big breasted without brain milk cow, I only need to think with my toes. Taking a weapon out will be like lifting your level up!”
Murong Qi Qi’s poisonous tongue let Guli choke.
“Very well! I will see if you’ve real ability or not!”
A breeze passed. Guli like a red frog stepping on the snow, went up at Murong Qi Qi. That black sword against the snow background truly have a cold aura. The first attack was already explosive strong. Everyone’s heart temporarily stopped beating. This is bad! This time princess Zhao Yang be ruined!
Everyone was worried about Murong Qi Qi’s safety, but this woman didn’t move a bit. She stood quietly on the snow as if she isn’t aware of the danger.
“Be careful……,” Li Yun Qing couldn’t help but shout. It’s just that his voice just fell, Guli was already in front of Murong Qi Qi.
“Ah……,” Seeing that Murong Qi Qi still didn’t dodge, Guli laughed evilly. Like this, she will get her head with one stroke! Let this arrogant woman go meet the king of hell.
Not waiting for Guli to finish, Murong Qi Qi moved sideways and went through Guli’s empty left hand to Guli’s back. The person who was in front of her just now, suddenly disappeared made Guli’s heart startled. Then she felt pan at her butt. Murong Qi Qi directly kicked at her rounded butt. This kick was extremely neat and the power was violent. Guli staggered and fell on the ground with her face down.
“The first strike, kick the evil dog!”
Murong Qi Qi clapped and put her hands on her waist. Her appearance looked cute as if she didn’t see Guli’s embarrassment.
Guli fell very tragically and the name Murong Qi Qi gave this strike was extremely funny. The people whose heart was originally hanging, laughed out loudly. Immediately, the atmosphere eased down.
Li Yun Qing laughed while shaking his head. How could he has forgotten that this girl’s kungfu on kicking people is very good? In the past, she kicked Duanmu Yi Yi in the lake. He didn’t expect that now she will resort to this at her first stroke.
It’s just, is that stroke really that simple? At that moment, they were so close. She flashed to Guli’s back with such a speed and also used such a strength to kick the other side; is this Murong Qi Qi really someone who doesn’t even have the strength to trust a chicken? The doubts in Li Yun Qing’s heart once again expanded. The way he looked at Murong Qi Qi became more profound.
“Cough, cough, cough!”
Guli drank a mouthful of blood. She stood up and immediately spit it out. However, the face because of the violent collision with the ground, became very red. It looked like there was a red biscuit hanging on her face. It looked very funny and her appearance reduced with five points. And at her naval cavity, she felt two stream of warmth. The next moment, two rows of nosebleed sprayed out tainting her lips and chin.
“Are you really a contestant of Nan Feng? How come you are so useless? You didn’t use bribery to become a contestant, right? You bragged so much, but in fact you are not much, ah!”
Murong Qi Qi took the opportunity to be sarcastic at Guli, making Guli so angry her whole body trembled. She wiped the blood on her nose, pulled two clothes to plug in her nose. The sword in her hand once again raised.
“Bitch! I’m going to kill you!”
Guli jumped. The sword in her hand stabbed in the direction of Murong Qi Qi. She looked like a red arc in a painting, rushing at Murong Qi Qi. However, she didn’t get near to Murong Qi Qi yet, when Murong Qi Qi turned, stepped on the snow and left the dangerous place.
Murong Qi Qi’s posture was very light. The jump looking like a running deer in the wilderness. The murderous aura in Guli intensified. That red figure chased after Murong Qi Qi, pressing harder and harder.
Two red dots like a race, chased in the snow. Murong Qi Qi didn’t fight, so Guli could only chase. Murong Qi Qi seemed to be deliberately teasing Guli. She went around a circle in the snow repeatedly. She only dodged. From time to time, in the air came the laughter of Murong Qi Qi with was like music as if this wasn’t a life and death duel but a play of catch me if you can.
“Till when do you want to dodge?! If you have the guts, then duel with me!”
Although Guli practice martial arts and she has a good condition, but after running in a circle for a dozen times, she was sure Murong Qi Qi was playing with her. She’s clearly delaying time and didn’t want to fight with her!
After ten laps, plus the fact that her rib was broken by Feng Cang, Guli’s breathing obviously became a lot shorter. She kept breathing and the chest also felt painful because of this. Despicable! Looking at the not far away laughing Murong Qi Qi, Guli cursed in her heart. She (MQQ) obviously knew her rib was broken and need a quick fix, but Murong Qi Qi didn’t fight with her. Instead, she (MQQ) consumed her (G) physical strength. Really too despicable!
The tactic that was despicable in Guli’s heart, when they entered Feng Cang’s eyes, it became appreciation.
Waste the other party’s strength. When the other party is so exhausted, kill her with one move. This is indeed the best way. Feng Cang didn’t expect that Murong Qi Qi will use the tactic on chess in an actual duel. Really a smart little woman! The way Feng Cang looked at Murong Qi Qi became gentler.
Now, Guli was panting. Every time, she breathed, her chest will be badly in pain. Really a despicable villain! Guli gritted her teeth and looked at Murong Qi Qi.
Seeing the expression of wanting to eat someone on Guli’s face, Murong Qi Qi laughed.
“Yo, what’s the matter? Exhausted? Just now who wanted to duel with me so much? How come now, we haven’t even warmed up, you’re already tired? How can this be, ah?! I still have one hundred and eighty strokes which I didn’t show yet! You need to stay alive till that time, ah!”
Ruyi stood behind Feng Cang and almost choked. Who said wangfei is gentle and pleasant, dignified and virtuous? Such a poisonous tongue, even going beyond Jin Mo. Who has taught wangfei such eloquence?!
“F**** your mother!”
Finally, Guli burst out foul language.
“The one who will die here today, will be you! I took a fancy on Feng Cang! When you’re dead, I will serve Feng Cang in your place! No man will like those like you without butt and without breast! I will certainly serve him well till he’s happy and let him immediately forget about you!”
Long Duo at a side saw Guli lose control like that, he frowned. How come Guli is so easily angered? Could it be she doesn’t know that being angry is the biggest taboo of a duel?! Although Murong Qi Qi still didn’t show her ability, but someone who knows to delay time, how could she be the rubbish from the rumors?!
“Go quickly and find young master Helan! Say something happened to Guli and is waiting for young master to come and help!”
Long Duo ordered the subordinate next to him. That man immediately flew away from the duel site.
Guli said so many big words to anger Murong Qi Qi and let her give up on running into circles to fight with her. She didn’t expect that Murong Qi Qi truly stopped and walked step by step towards her (G).
It’s just, why did Guli feel now that Murong Qi Qi is somewhat different? She changed her laughing expression. Her whole expression turned cold and the cold aura emitting from Murong Qi Qi made Guli very shocked. Such an aura, could she really be an ordinary person?
Originally, Murong Qi Qi wanted to play a bit more with Guli and exhaust her. Then take her life. She didn’t think that she’ll (G) pull Feng Cang inside this, made Murong Qi Qi very unhappy. Her man can only be hers, Murong Qi Qi’s! The other party not only want her man, but also want to take her position. This was something Murong Qi Qi couldn’t tolerate.
Guli didn’t know she touched Murong Qi Qi’s bottom line. Seeing Murong Qi Qi coming at her, she also prepared to fight. She intended to take down Murong Qi Qi’s head. She didn’t expect Murong Qi Qi to leap up and the red muslin in her hand waved. She was like the ninth fairy coming down at earth in front of her (G).
Only when Long Duo’s voice reached over, did Guli awaken from the surprise. She was too late to dodge. So, she could only fell sideways on the ground and rolled to a safe place.
The red muslin hit the ground. The snowflakes splashed, revealing the original black paving slab.
The slab cracked.
The crack became bigger and the whole stone crushed into powder.
Shock! Everyone looked foolishly at that aloof woman. Only a red muslin was able to burst out such a powerful force? If it fell onto a person’s body……everyone couldn’t help but look compassionate at Guli. Fortunately, this woman dodged fast, otherwise, she would’ve been seriously injured.
The breaking of the slab also let Guli shiver. What kind of horrifying force is this? Her (MQQ) didn’t have any inner energy. How come she has such a powerful force to actually crush the slab of the road? The thought that if it wasn’t because of Long Duo’s reminder, all her bones would’ve been crushed, Guli’s whole body shivered. Her vigilance also increased to the highest level.
Murong Qi Qi didn’t give Guli the opportunity to breathe. That red muslin seemed to come to life in her hands. It danced in the sky. And Murong Qi Qi’s feminine body was enveloped in the red muslin. On the white snow, a beauty in red danced with the red muslin. Dancing as if she came from a beautiful painting in front of everyone.
Very beautiful……Li Yun Qing was dazed. He couldn’t help but take out his jade flute and played the song .
Murong Qi Qi followed the music and danced with the beat. In the sky, the long red muslin make a beautiful picture. The next moment, the red muslin fell next to Guli. Like the previous time, the stone slab cracked and crushed into powder. The gentle and beautiful scene was gone and revealed a sharp murderous aura.
Guli dodged in a sorry state on the snow. The red muslin in Murong Qi Qi seemed to have wings and repeatedly flew at her. No matter where she falls, the red muslin will chase immediately. Not a bit at a side, it just hit the place where she was standing, making it so she couldn’t help but ‘escape’.
Suddenly it began to snow. This little bit of white made the woman dancing in the snow livelier. Her face had a gentle smile and danced a moving dance on the snow, but the force in her hand didn’t lessen a bit. She pressed harder and harder, making it so that there’s no way for Guli to escape anymore.
The people forgot that this is a duel between life and death. Everyone was immersed in Murong Qi Qi’s wonderful dance. White snow, red soul and that essence of the red soul is that dancing woman.
She looked like a fairy who fell into the mortal world. Because of the greed for the earthly good, she forgot to return to heaven. She danced and used that piece of red muslin to tell her fondness of the world. What a wonderful woman! Inside everyone’s heart rose such a thought. They all looked quietly at Murong Qi Qi and didn’t dare to make a sound as if, if they made a sound they will alert that fairy.
The only person who felt bitterness was Guli. The eyes of the people were gentle and pure. The fairy like Murong Qi Qi was a demon in her eyes. This woman didn’t intend to leave her a wat of life. Everywhere, where she stood has been hit by the red muslin in Murong Qi Qi’s hand. All those slabs turned into pieces. How brutal is this force? How terrifying!
To be able to operate such a soft muslin and using this soft muslin to burst such a force, is this woman really the rubbish who doesn’t know martial arts from the rumors?!
At this time, Li Yun Qing’s sound of the flute became higher. And the red muslin in Murong Qi Qi’s hand suddenly exuded a ferocious murderous aura.
In the headquarters of the Snowy Lotus Cult, located in Huyue County of Qingzhou:
“Teacher.” Li Jun, dressed in a purple cloak, said as she bowed courteously to the High Priestess of the Snowy Lotus Cult.
“Little Jun, this is the Sovereign.” The High Priestess of the Snowy Lotus Cult said with respect.
Li Jun lost her breath as she thought to herself, “This man is the Sovereign? The Sovereign of the Heavenly God Palace?” Li Jun peeked at the man beside High Priestess of the Snowy Lotus Cult. This was a chubby, middle-aged man with pale skin and a friendly smile. His gaze was like the vast starry sky, seemingly able to lure people into it.
“Little Jun!” the High Priestess of the Snowy Lotus Cult shouted deeply.
Li Jun snapped out of her daze and hastily bowed, “Pleased to meet the Sovereign.”
“Haha, our Heavenly God Palace’s master of the beast language is so young, and furthermore, to have stepped into the Innate Realm while you’re still so young, very impressive,” complimented Pei San, “and you have a very powerful husband, Li Jun. Did you know your husband has an Emptiness Ream demonic beast?”
“I just found out recently,” replied Li Jun courteously. She was secretly proud of him as she thought to herself, “Hmph, shocked by this? If you knew that Jing Yi was in fact Teng Qingshan, perhaps you would all be so surprised your eyeballs would fall out.”
“Mhmm,” Pei San nodded his head, smiling.
“Your husband is the Foreign Dignitary of the Heavenly God Palace. Yet, I have never met him. Let’s go… Li Jun, follow me and your teacher to meet your husband.” Pei San said with a smile. Originally, he had planned to meet Jing Yi after the destruction of Hong Tian City, but since he found out that Jing Yi had a very powerful demonic beast, he had decided to change his plans.
“Go see Hu He?” Li Jun was surprised.
“Little Jun, are you not leaving?” The High Priestess of the Snowy Lotus Cult hastily approached Li Jun and dragged her disciple along.
Immediately, the High Priestess and Li Jun followed Pei San and they flew towards Yangzhou.

The doctor paused for a while before adding, ” The main reason for the miscarriage were the sleeping pills.”
Lu Jinnian froze, his face paling.
“Besides, the kind of sleeping pills that she is taking has a component that would cause the user to become unconscious, causing her to still be asleep now.
“During the operation, I gave your wife an anesthesia shot. That shot along with the her sleeping pills would let her sleep for a long while more. If she’s fine after she wakes up, she can go home, but she may still be a little weak, so do make sure she has plenty of rest. After the surgery, she’ll bleed for about a week. If the bleeding doesn’t stop, you must come back for a check up.”
The doctor had said a lot and had tried to concise his words, but once he saw Lu Jinnian’s expression, he hesitated and tried to comfort him.
“Mr. Lu, I hope you won’t blame yourself even though you are upset. The fact that the child is here means that you have made an effort with the mutual consent to not use any preventive measures. You might be upset to have lost a child, but your wife will definitely feel even worse, since it’s a mother’s nature.
“Besides, if she were to know that she had caused the death of her child, she would feel guilty. That’s why I decided to inform you about it beforehand, so that she won’t be in shock when she finds out after she wakes up.”
Lu Jinnian couldn’t explain the negativity in his heart. He felt in pain and lost, but his eyes stared calmly at the doctor. Mustering up a lot of energy, he murmured, “Yea, I understand.” After a bit, he added, “Thank you.”
The doctor nodded formally then retreated with the others from the ward, leaving him alone and in silence.
The lights in the ward were dim and yellow, blurring his vision. He stood at the same spot for a long time before turning to look at Qiao Anhao, who was lying on the bed. She had just been through a surgery. Her face was pale but peaceful, unaware of the tragedy that had just happened.
If she were to find out that she had lost a child in her dreams and that the child died because of the sleeping pills that she had taken, what would she do?
Be upset? Regret it? Break down? Or would she be devastated?
In that instance, Lu Jinnian’s mind was filled with the image of Qiao Anhao crying sadly. His heart clenched, and the the nurse’s and doctor’s words echoed in his head.
“Let’s not talk about the damage done to a body after a miscarriage… As a mother, if she knew that her own child had silently passed away, she’d probably be heartbroken to death!”
“You might be upset to have lost a child, but your wife will definitely feel even worse, since it’s a mother’s nature.”
Feel even worse… When he found out that his child had died, he felt as though every cell in his body had exploded; he had never felt such pain in his life. Chapter 330: I am Sorry (10)

She would feel even worse, how bad would that be?
Just the thought of it made him shudder, making him blame himself more.
They were right, it was indeed his mistake. He had loved her for so many years, and every single time they did it, it seemed like a dream. He never remembered to take contraceptive measures and she had also forgotten, causing the tragedy today.
When they were still in school, boys from his dorm had also had an active sex life, but none of them had ended up killing a life.
He remembered in one physical education lesson, a girl was not aware of her pregnancy and had participated in a marathon. In the last round, she started bleeding heavily. Afterwards, she realized that she had miscarried.
That was back in high school, and the incident had severely damaged the reputation of their school. In the end, the girl was forced to leave. When she left with her belongings, her eyes were red and swollen, but the guy had found another girlfriend soon after. Every time the incident was brought up, the girl would be blamed for her indecency.
There was another time in college, the guy that was living below his bunk bed, who had a relatively good background, had managed to get together with the most popular girl from the Chinese department. She had aborted three times because of him, but he had never cared, even showing off to the others when he got drunk. After he had graduated, he had dumped her, but by then, she wasn’t able to get pregnant anymore.
At that time, he didn’t pay attention to any of those gossips, but today, after Qiao Anhao had a miscarriage and had to have an abortion, the memories seemed to come flooding into his mind.
Back then, he didn’t care, he just felt that the guys were jerks and the girls were pitiful. He had even sworn that if he managed to get together with Qiao Anhao, he would never let her endure such darkness, he would give her the best that he could.
And yet he still allowed her to endure such a tragedy…
If he hadn’t touched her, if he had been able to control himself, if he had thought to take contraceptive measures… If he had thought about pregnancy nausea few days ago when he had touched her… if…
Lu Jinnian’s hands clenched into fists, his throat tight and choked up.
Such a tragedy could have been prevented in so many ways, but he hadn’t taken any.
He had let her down.
He had failed to give her the perfect life that he had promised.
Lu Jinnian stayed up the entire night, guarding beside Qiao Anhao’s bed.
As the doctor had mentioned, the anesthesia lasted a long time. She slept for a long time with no signs of waking. Halfway through, the doctor visited but left without saying much more than that she was in deep sleep.
The next day at 7 am, Lu Jinnian called his assistant to drive him and Qiao Anhao back to Mian Xiu Garden.
Madam Chen was already awake. When she saw the car, she ran out to greet them. Lu Jinnian carried Qiao Anhao, who was fast asleep, upstairs, into their room.
With concern, Madam Chen asked, “Mr. Lu, what’s wrong with Mrs. Lu?” Chapter 535: Cage Battle Arena

The corners of Duan Ling Tian’s mouth twitched and he was slightly embarrassed.
Never had he imagined that the grade six spirit weapon glove of the Dragon and Phoenix Academy’s Vice Dean, Chi Ming, was actually refined by the Guild Master of the Azure Forest Imperial Kingdom’s Weapons Craftsmen Main Guild, Luo Rong.
“Master, you’re refining a grade four spirit weapon for Chi Ming?” Luo Rong took a deep breath and his eyes contained slight envy mixed within.
Duan Ling Tian nodded. “Yes, I owe him a favor.”
Luo Rong came to a sudden understanding.
Although he was curious what favor did Duan Ling Tian owe Chi Ming, he knew what he should ask and what he shouldn’t.
“I’m starting.” Duan Ling Tian nodded to Luo Rong then started.
Profound weapons refinement techniques came freely in Duan Ling Tian’s hands, and it was as if he was assisted by the gods.
For the sake of taking care of Luo Rong, Duan Ling Tian intentionally slowed down.
In next to no time, Duan Ling Tian withdrew the pile of materials including the seven materials Chi Ming had found for him.
“This is Thousand Year Ice? This is a 10,000 year old Turtle Shell? This is…” The Good-For-Nothing Cultivator As the Guild Master of the Weapons Craftsmen Main Guild, Luo Rong had excellent sight, and he quickly recognized these rare materials.
“Looks like that fellow Chi Ming went through a lot of trouble for the grade four spirit weapon!” Luo Rong thought in his heart.
Luo Rong quickly returned to his senses and watched Duan Ling Tian refine seriously.
After spending an entire morning, Duan Ling Tian had finally completed the refinement of the grade four spirit weapon glove he promised Chi Ming.
When Duan Ling Tian wore the glove and his Origin Energy raged.
4,800 lifelike ancient mammoth silhouettes condensed into form in the sky.
“60% amplification again!” Luo Rong’s pupils constricted when he saw this scene.
Duan Ling Tian nodded in satisfaction as he’d finally completed his promise to Chi Ming.
Subsequently, Duan Ling Tian put away the glove and wore a light azure ring on his right index finger…
This wasn’t a Spatial Ring, but was instead the grade four spirit weapon Duan Ling Tian refined for himself.
With a raise of his hand, the tempest point force condensed and tore through the sky, and it pierced through the window on the third floor before it shook towards the sky outside.
Above Duan Ling Tian, 5,800 ancient mammoth silhouettes condensed into form.
This time, the reason there as an extra strength of 1,000 ancient mammoths compared to before was because Duan Ling Tian utilized his Half-step Advanced Lightning Force and Half-step Advanced Wind Force at the same time.
“This is an offensive spirit weapon?” Luo Rong was dumbstruck.
He’d seen it clearly when Duan Ling Tian refined this ring earlier.
He originally thought it was only a Spatial Ring, but unexpectedly, this was actually an offensive spirit weapon. Moreover, it was a grade four offensive spirit weapon that provided a 60% amplification!
Duan Ling Tian spun the azure colored ring on his hand with satisfaction, and he revealed a smile on his face.
For the afternoon, Duan Ling Tian continued to guide Luo Rong in the Dao of Weapons Refinement.
Whereas Luo Rong improved by leaps and bounds when compared to before.
At dusk, Luo Rong reluctantly send Duan Ling Tian to the stairway on the third floor. “Master, take care.”
Duan Ling Tian nodded, then left the Weapons Craftsmen Guild and returned to Dragon and Phoenix Academy.
In the following days, besides cultivating in the academy, Duan Ling Tian would leave the academy every month to guide Luo Rong in the Dao of Weapons Refinement at the Weapons Craftsmen Guild…
The remaining time was almost all spent on the various experience missions issued by the academy.
As expected, Duan Ling Tian obtained the first in every single mission issued by the academy!
But unfortunately, the missions issued by the academy later on didn’t have any rewards like the Void Refining Fruit.
The points Duan Ling Tian collected were all exchanged for various materials.
As for cultivation methods, martial skills, spirit weapons, and medicinal pills, he utterly had no need for them.
Time flew by.
In the blink of an eye, only half a month remained to the genius competition of the Azure Forest Imperial Kingdom.
At that time, the people who ranked in the top five of the genius competition would obtain the qualification to head to Darkstone Empire’s Imperial City and compete with the young geniuses of the Darkstone Empire and the various Imperial Kingdoms.
If they were able to become eminent in the Darkstone Empire, they would be able to head to the Darkhan Dynasty to compete for the qualification to participate in the Martial Competition of the Ten Dynasties!
There was a vast space at the northern area of the Imperial City.
Beta nodded, the elder then said, “All bags are the same?” Beta nodded again. The elder immediately told Beta, “Go ask Zhao Hai to come over.” Beta did not say anything, he immediately went outside in haste.
The elder slowly sat down, but his eyes never left the bamboo rice on the ground, such good rice, he has never seen them before in his life. If Zhao Hai supplies this rice, not to mention half price, even if he doubles the price the elder would still be willing to trade.
Before long, the sound of footsteps can be heard outside the tent, after which Beta and Zhao Hai walked in. This time the elder acted very polite. He got up and saluted to Zhao Hai, “Welcome Mister Zhao, please take a sit.” Zhao Hai didn’t dare to act big, he returned the elder’s salute, he then went towards the elder’s right side and sat down.
This is the way humans show respect, Zhao Hai sitting on the elder’s right side shows an act of modesty. This gave the elder a very good impression. After Zhao Hai sat down, the elder looked at Zhao Hai, “For Mister Zhao to bring us such high quality grain, I am very deeply grateful for that.”
Zhao Hai quickly responded. “Elder is too polite, to get into the elder’s graces, this Zhao Hai is honored.”
The elder actually didn’t care about Zhao Hai’s modesty, he looked at Zhao Hai and asked, “Mister has such good quality grain, but why sell it to us at such a low price? I ask Mister Zhao to clear my doubts about this.”
Zhao Hai showed a faint smile as he replied, “There is nothing to complex about it, there are actually only two reasons. First, because these grains are my territories’ produce, therefore the price is very low. Second, is because I have just arrived at the prairie, and seeing the the prairie operates on an open market, the prices would be naturally low, of course, this does not mean that my price would increase later, be assured elder, my food price wouldn’t change.”
The elder looked at Zhao Hai and nodded. Zhao Hai’s response was justified. The elder continued towards Zhao Hai, “How much grain could Mr. Zhao supply this year?”
Zhao Hai frowned and said, “Only 15 million pounds, my ability to transport is currently very limited, moreover I can only trade this month, after this month winter would arrive. At which point I would probably return to my territory, thus I cannot transport food here.”
The elder gave an understanding nod, humans after all would need to return to their homes. It would be impossible for them to wade the winter with the beastmen race, they are not used to that kind of life, but 15 million jin of grain wouldn’t be too less upon further calculation.
Zhao Hai looked at the elder and smiled, “Elder, I don’t know if I would be fortunate enough to meet with West Wonder King? In order to discuss the possibility of cooperation next year?”
The elder paused for a moment, then he replied, “I don’t have authority for this, I will report your inquiry to the prince, tomorrow I shall give you a reply.”
Zhao Hai nodded, he looked at the elder and said, “There is another thing that I want to talk with elder, now that my men has delivered the grain, they need to leave immediately, can you look to see if I can get the payment for this batch of grain? To save me trouble of bringing them myself.”
The elder paused, then he nodded and said, “Not a problem, but these things needs to be readied, you’ll have to wait for a day. What payment does mister want? Do you want all of them to be argali?”
Zhao Hai shook his head, “No, actually, I was going to talk to the elder about this matter. We have a few elders in the family, they are potion masters as well as alchemists. You should know, they like to collect special ingredients. Therefore, if possible, I’d want some special magic beasts and magic plants, if you were to offer your tribe’s unique magic beast that would be better. Of course, we still would accept Argali as well as wool products as payment, I ask the elder to look into these matters.”
The elder didn’t think that Zhao Hai would have a special request. He looked at Zhao Hai and said, “Mister’s meaning is, if we were to exchange the grains with some fighting bulls of our clan, then you’d offer a high price? What about magic beasts?” [TN: not the Fighting Bull clansmen but instead their ‘cousin’ Fighting Bull beast]
Zhao Hai hastily replied, “Be assured elder, I’d offer the same high price for magic beasts, but the quantities of these beasts couldn’t be many. After all, I fear that I couldn’t raise them properly.”
The elder agreed to Zhao Hai’s request, he nodded his head and said, “Well, I can give you ten Fighting Bulls, as well as ten wild blood cows. I hope mister can exchange each cow for 10 thousand jin of grain. Then we’ll use Argali and wool blankets for the rest, what do you think?”
Zhao Hai thinks for a moment then replied, “There’s no problem, ten fighting bulls plus ten wild blood cows account for two hundred thousand jin of grain, that leaves 2,800,000 jin of grain. If 2,800,000 jin were to be traded with argali, it would be 1,400 heads. So I’d like 1000 heads, and the for the rest I’d like 600 blankets. If your tribe has any magic plants, this number can be lowered, what do you think?”
The elder nodded, “Fair enough, I agree. Tomorrow, Mr. Zhao can get the things that you requested. However, currently we don’t have the time to collect more magic beasts as well as plants for mister. The time is too short, moreover, during winter plants would wither, we can only wait for next year.”
Zhao Hai faintly smiles, “That’s fine, the elder can send some people to collect during these days. In a few days my second batch of grain will arrive, then we could trade, withered plants are okay, as long as it hasn’t withered for more than one month.”
The elder nodded, “Very well, we’ll try our best. Mister can return, if West Wonder King agrees to meet mister tomorrow, I’ll immediately inform you.” Zhao Hai expressed his gratitude, then turned to leave.
Looking at Zhao Hai going out, Beta couldn’t help but say to the elder, “Elder, why did you agree to trade him our fighting bulls? What if he studies them what do we do?”
The elder showed a faint smile, “Nothing, rest assured, humans have spent all these years researching about our soul beasts without much result. And do you think that if we don’t give them some beasts, they wouldn’t have any way to procure them elsewhere? If they really are to be greedy, then why not trade our soul beasts to bring more food for ourselves?”
Beta nodded, not saying anything, the elder turned to Beta, “You go take some people from the tribe and go search for some strange plants. If anyone were to spot some magic beasts, make sure to bring them alive.” Beta complied, then turned to leave.
Zhao Hai went to his tent while assessing his conversation with the elder. But fortunately, there are no flaws in his part, he acted like any common merchant.
He just deliberately asked the elder for their magic beasts because he is very clear that he can’t be too low-key. Human merchants tend to act high-profile towards the beastmen, so he should be the same from time to time. The opposite would cause other people to have suspicions. After all, spies would tend to be low-key, trying not to stir up trouble as much as possible, on the contrary, if you were to act high-profile, no one would suspect you.
Zhao Hai also would not be too high-profile, but he also couldn’t be a pushover. So he asked the elder for the tribe’s companion soul beast as well as some special magic plants , which could be be interpreted as a lofty request. At the same time, he also disclosed to the elder that he couldn’t get these things at another place.
Zhao Hai knows very clear, that West Wonder King isn’t most afraid of Wales. In his opinion, Herculean Bull tribe was already ruined. Wales is a prince of a declining tribe, they wouldn’t even dare return to the Cow-headed beastman domain. West Wonder King fears the grudge held by the Fighting Bull chieftain.
And Zhao Hai, by requesting for fighting bulls and wild blood cows, gave clues to the elder that he is not related to the chieftain of the Fighting Bull Tribe.
Strictly speaking, West Wonder King’s tribe is a branch family of the Fighting Bull tribe so they also use the same bulls as the main tribe. Their beasts, the fighting bulls, have bodies filled with short black hairs, a very violent ox-headed bull. The bull’s height is nearly three meters, they cannot use magic but they have great strength, ranked in the top ten among the cow-headed domain. Moreover, they also have a special ability, Rage!
Rage can be considered as a very strange ability, because of their fury, their strength and defensive ability would greatly explode. No matter what level the opposing beast is, they would still dare to charge. This point is what excels them compare to other magic beasts.
Ranks of magic beasts are very strict, like the fighting bulls which can be considered as sixth rank magic beasts. Ordinary sixth rank beasts, when they meet eighth ranked beasts, would be immobilized, thus letting the eight rank easily slaughter them. But the fighting bulls are different, they are not afraid, whether it be eight rank or ninth rank beasts, as long as they are in a state of rage, they’d dare to make the first move and charge.
The wild blood cows, are a dark-type magic beast. They place only at the fifth rank, only five levels. They can perform simple blood magic, but this beast actually is most suited for the fighting bull clan.
The name wild blood actually doesn’t conform to the cow’s nature because of its two blood magics, one is Quick Recovery and the other is Gloom.
These two magic belongs to Support-type magic, Quick Recovery can be cast on somebody to quicken their wound healing my many folds, some being dozens of times faster. Gloom is a mental type black magic, once used, the target would become absolutely rational, like a puppet, and seemingly forgetting what anger is.
These two magics fit the Fighting Bulls perfectly. Regarding the Fighting Bulls’ temper, with which single word can cause a fight, and their mounts would be similar, once the rage skill is used, it would be in a state of extreme anger, no matter if ally or foe, it would only know to charge, which in a battlefield is very fearful.
But the two skills of the wild blood cow happens to suppress this enraged state. So the Fighting Bulls absorb the wild blood cow’s soul and train in their skills. After practicing in these skills their beastly souls would obtain two new abilities, which is to quickly recover wounds as well as make them retain a calm condition, not only them, but also to their mounts.
Their name of wild blood cows became so because they are completely blood red. Normally with black and white eyes, their eye color would turn red once in battle, like a violent man when he is angry, therefore it was given its name of wild blood.
Before, the Fighting Bull tribe is only an ordinary tribe within the cow-headed race. Their temperament is too bad along with their very disobedient mounts, they couldn’t control their temper which wouldn’t differentiate between friend or foe. Because of these qualities, they were not very well-liked among the cow-headed race.
Afterwards, after generations of effort, they finally were able to find soul beasts most suitable for them, which multiplied their battle effectiveness my many folds. Now they are famous within the cow-headed race as strong warriors.
The human race, all these years, has had researched beastmen soul beasts as well as beast relatives. They want to discover a way to crack this method that gave beastmen immense strength. But till now they still haven’t succeeded. The Beastmen are still using soul beasts but humans are still using battle qi.
Humans have always coveted this method of obtaining strength from the beastmen for a long time. If they were to discover how these beastmen managed to have companion beasts, this would greatly increase the might of their cavalry. If they were to know how to use soul beasts, then their battle power would also increase greatly. But unfortunately, just as the beastmen said, these two abilities were given to them by the Beast God. With the exception of the beastmen, no other race could use these abilities.
Zhao Hai also knows that, before, some human merchants would purchase soul beasts as well as unique beasts from the beastmen and then bring them back to Human territory to do research on. But unfortunately, most of these beasts would die of illness. Even if its alive, the humans still couldn’t find anything in their research.
Because of this point did Zhao Hai propose to the elder his purchase of their fighting bulls and wild blood cows. This is because he knows the elder will sell, in addition it would eliminate some of the elder’s wariness of him.
As he returned to his tent, Zhao Hai immediately turned on the monitor. The words Beta and the elder has said right after he left gave him relief. He has now found out that the elder’s wariness of him has basically disappeared. Chapter 1622: Mysterious Creature
Bright fire light shone on this space, which seemed to have been in darkness for ten thousand years. However, Xiao Yan involuntarily felt a chill over his body despite the light from the flame. The source of this chill seemed to be the enormous creature that was present in the dark space below!
It was an indescribably huge creature that lay within the dark empty space without moving. Xiao Yan’s sight shifted along its body. However, he was still unable to see an end to its body when his sight was blocked by the darkness in the distance…
This mysterious creature was completely purple-gold in colour. Icy cold scales covered its body. A kind of hard steel like feeling rose from it.
Xiao Yan was floated in the empty space. His eyes were unable to see the creature in its entirety. One could imagine just how unbelievably large this creature was. It was the first time that Xiao Yan had seen a body of this size after all these years!
Even though his decades of experience had allowed Xiao Yan to maintain a great control of himself, he still felt greatly shocked when he suddenly discovered that there was actually such a huge creature, which could devour the sky, present in the dark space under him.
Who could have imagined that there would actually be such a terrifying creature existing within this quiet space, which appeared to be void of life?
Xiao Yan’s throat rolled involuntarily. Traces of cold sweat had even appeared on his forehead. He carefully observed the huge creature sitting below. Even with his eyesight, he was unable to guess just what kind of creature it was.
“I must not remain in this place…”
Since he had already learnt that the bottom of the magma world did indeed hide the Ancient God Cave, Xiao Yan had also intended to withdraw. Although that huge creature below was completely quiet and appeared dead, his Di State soul allowed Xiao Yan to detect a trace of dangerous aura. This kind of aura was not inferior to that of Hun Tiandi or Gu Yuan.
It was best not to remain in this place for long. The most appropriate course of action was to gather his people and get Gu Yuan to accompany him to probe this Ancient God Mansion!
Xiao Yan’s body slowly pulled back as this thought flashed across his heart. However, he had only just taken ten steps back when he suddenly sensed that the huge creature’s body below him shook slightly.
Although this movement was slight, it still caused Xiao Yan’s eyes to shrink. He understood that with his strength, he was definitely not mistaken. In that case, there was only one answer. This mysterious creature was still alive!
Xiao Yan’s retreating speed suddenly soared the moment he thought of this!
A pair of huge eyes within the dark empty space, which had been shut for a long time, were suddenly opened when Xiao Yan had began to pull back!
This pair of eyes had a faint redness in them. Those eyes were solemn. Just the size of this pair of eyes was already hundreds of times larger than Xiao Yan!
This pair of eyes were locked onto Xiao Yan the moment they had opened. At the same time, an extremely terrifying pressure directly enveloped Xiao Yan’s body, causing his retreating speed to suddenly slow!
Xiao Yan’s expression changed after that terrifying pressure enveloped his body. He activated his Di State soul. Only then did he manage to reduce this feeling of having fallen into a quagmire.
“Tomb raider… did you bring the ancient jade?”
The space suddenly shook as Xiao Yan’s Spiritual Strength surged. A voice, which caused even the space to tremble, suddenly sounded.
Xiao Yan tightened his fist. He looked at the pair of huge eyes within the darkness. At this moment, those eyes contained an icy chill as they stared at him in an indifferent fashion. There was no fluctuation within it.
“I have accidently barge into this place. Please forgive me if I have disturbed it. I will immediately withdraw!” Xiao Yan cupped his hands together towards the eyes and spoke in a deep voice.
“No ancient jade huh?” A voice sounded within the space after the creature heard this. Immediately, Xiao Yan seemed to have seen some disappointment and… an icy cold murderous intent.
“This is bad!”
Xiao Yan’s expression changed drastically upon detecting this emotion. He could not be bothered with anything else. The Purifying Demonic Lotus Flame covered his body and a pair of bone wings was extended from his back. After which, he hurriedly withdrew!
“Please remain behind if you do not have it…” The indifferent voice once again sounded. After which, the entire space suddenly shook. Bright purple-gold light pillars broke through the darkness. It penetrated through the empty space and ruthlessly shot towards Xiao Yan.
Xiao Yan’s eyes became cold after he saw that mysterious creature unleashing an attack. His hand seal changed and his enormous spiritual body appeared outside. He widened his mouth and a terrifying spiritual assault swept over from all directions. In an instant, it ruthlessly collided with the purple-golden light pillar!
A storm exploded within the space as the loud sound appeared.
The storm swept over the place but the purple light still remained. Xiao Yan’s Di State soul’s Yellow Spring Divine Anger was unable to shatter it. His eyes quickly became even more solemn. With a change of his hand seal, another two ferocious spiritual fluctuation surged out from him.
Two spiritual sonic wave attack heavily smashed onto the purple light. This time around, the purple light was finally shattered. However, Xiao Yan also staggered backwards by ten thousand feet because of the lingering force.
“What a terrifying strength this big fellow has!”
Shock surged within Xiao Yan’s heart after this exchange. Just a random attack had forced Xiao Yan to use all his strength to block it. The strength of this mysterious creature was definitely not inferior to Hun Tiandi or Gu Yuan!
“Di State soul…” The mysterious creature’s voice within the empty darkness contained a little surprise.
Xiao Yan did not have the time to bother about him. He took advantage of the force to once again rushed to the exit of this realm.
While Xiao Yan was rushing with rapid speed, another sharp wind suddenly surged from behind him. The corner of his eyes shifted and he saw a purple-gold light flashed. It actually agglomerated into a mysterious light seal. After which, it came smashing furiously onto Xiao Yan.
Xiao Yan’s expression was once again altered as he sensed the terrifying strength contained within the light seal. He clenched his fists. Two six coloured Extermination Fire Lotus were formed. After which, he threw them behind him without turning his head.
The Extermination Fire Lotus exploded on the light seal. Fire wave churned. However, he did not cause the light seal to shake. Immediately, a ray of light suddenly shot out from within the light seal and headed towards Xiao Yan with lightning like speed.
Xiao Yan was cautious when the light ray shot out. He hurriedly turned around. Both of his hands danced and the Purifying Demonic Fire Lotus quickly turned into pink crystals in front of him.
The light ray arrived in the blink of an eye. It directly smashed onto the layers of pink fire crystal. Those crystals quickly collapsed an inch at a time. The light ray seemed to have an extremely easy time destroying those originally extremely hard fire crystals. After which, it heavily smashed onto Xiao Yan’s body.
Xiao Yan’s face turned red after suffering this heavy attack. A mouthful of fresh blood was spat out while his body once again used the momentum to withdraw
Xiao Yan’s blood dyed the light seal a short distance away. It emitted emitted waves of sizzling sound.
“Stay behind and accompany me…” The mysterious creature did not intend to allow Xiao Yan to escape after defeating him with a single strike. The light seal whistled and once again chased after Xiao Yan.
However, what could he even do? Could divine medicines and other things preserve these people?
Next Chapter “Yan Hai?” Long Yao’s eyes became as big as saucers. The person on the platform was the last person he had expected to see!
It was the same Jun Wu Xie who should have been at that moment, consumed by hatred and plotting her revenge that was standing defiantly in the middle of the arena. All the applause and cheers in the arena were for her!
The most powerful person in the 72 cities left everyone in the arena dumbfounded. Nobody thought that Jun Wu Xie would appear in the arena at that moment.
In fact, although today’s selection was more exciting than previous days, it was still being fought by weaker exponents. The real contenders would only appear later, yet Jun Wu Xie suddenly appeared.
Her appearance had whipped everyone in the arena into a frenzy!
In all the 72 cities, was there anyone who did not know who she was and how powerful she was?
As she stood on the platform, all remaining challengers hoping to show their strength felt totally defeated!
What a joke!
How were they going to fight?
They were only at the level of Spiritual Inscriptions and could be crushed by any Spirit Ring bearer, not to mention someone like Jun Wu Xie who possessed a Dual Spirit Ring!
All those from the Golden Peak Pinnacle cowered into a corner and all the Spiritual Inscription warriors unconsciously started retreating from the platform that could spell certain death for them. Even the strong Spirit Ring Bearers, upon seeing Jun Wu Xie, started twitching uncontrollably.
What did this person actually want?
Who would dare to challenge a Dual Spirit Ring bearer?
After the cheers, an eerie silence permeated the arena….
The winner of the last round barely had time to savour his victory before his great joy got devoured by an even greater fear when he saw Jun Wu Xie.
Jun Wu Xie looked at him coldly, turning his legs into jelly. She said nothing but he gasped in fear and scrambled off the platform.
Come n, fight with a Dual Spirit Ring bearer?!
He was not tired of living!!
Jun Wu Xie was the only one left on the platform. She steadily turned her ice gaze towards the one in the highest chair, Long Yao!
When Long Yao’s eyes met Jun Wu Xie, there was no wavering in his heart. On the first day of the selections, he had already seen the youth and other than a cool demeanor, could not discern anything related to her character. But today, looking at her steely gaze, he could feel her murderous intent!
Jun Wu Xie had come filled with hatred, ready to take revenge.
In a way that Long Yao did not expect….
Imagine. The moment Jun Wu Xie stood on the platform, her Dual Spirit Ring was enough to deter all the contestants in the selection. With her strength, who would dare to enter the ring? !!
Long Yao had calculated everything, except the possibility of Jun Wu Xie being able to think of such a thorough method of revenge while experiencing such anger and hate.
As long as nobody went up the platform, Jun Wu Xie could challenge the Top Ten masters directly!
There was no need to wait at all! – Appeared in Both Past and Present
This affected Shi Hao way too much. He was already extremely strong, yet he was still so helpless. Age was something that couldn’t be defied, not even someone as powerful as a supreme being had any way of reversing this.
“Grandpa Chief!” Shi Hao supported him. Shi Yunfeng really was old, now old and gray-haired, blood energy dried up, body weak.
“I won’t let Grandpa Chief continue to get older.” Shi Hao said. He produced a bottle of liquid, wishing for Shi Yunfeng to drink it. This was immortal blood he gathered from the dam world, already refined, obtaining some undying matter.
The instant he opened the container, everyone was moved. There was a clear fragrance that wafted out from within, the droplets of blood inside like exquisite wine.
It had been repeatedly refined, the killing energy and harmful substances all refined away, already becoming great medicine.
Shi Hao spent a century there, but he only ended up refining a few containers. This liquid was priceless, even more precious than divine medicines after they entered the Cultivationless Age.
Under the current sky, he was the only one who could refine this immortal blood!
Even though the essence had flowed away, with only some bits remaining, others still couldn’t refine it. Their bodies would explode before they even got close to the immortal corpse, the immortal dao force was incomparable.
When Clan Chief Shi Yunfeng understood what this was, he had a gratified expression on his face, fulfilled and calm. “Foolish child, you can prolong grandpa’s life for a bit, perhaps one, two, or three eras, right? In this lifetime, I already have no regrets. Being able to watch you grow up, seeing how you can already look down on the world, what else is there for me to complain about? Grandpa can’t accompany you for your entire life, I cannot reach a level where I can coexist with the world, becoming undying. I am only an ordinary elder. In life, what is worth having the most, are joy and peace, and I already have both, I always had them during these years. I am already content.”
The old clan chief patted his hand, his face carrying a benevolent smile, incredibly satisfied. So many years passed, his old companions already all left this world, he also wished to see them now.
Shi Yunfeng refused, not ingesting the immortal blood. He knew that his own grandson needed it more than him. In the future, if there was a vicious battle, this would definitely be a life-saving treasure.
However, how could Shi Hao give up? The old clan chief raised him up, influencing his entire life, the one he was least willing to see dead. At night, he quietly refined the medicinal blood into the old clan chief’s body, ensuring that he didn’t die from old age.
“We’re going to battle!”
Shi Hao didn’t immediately bring them back to the dam world, instead starting to explore the world, opening all types of secret realms.
During this period, he gathered all types of ancient books and records. He listened to some legends of the locals, and then used these as clues, searching the world’s remains and other places.
In several years, he opened up four or five small worlds, all of them left behind from the ancient times. They were all great treasuries.
“Wall of Gods and Devils!”
This was a place of self tempering. For the sake of heading into the higher realms, when he was young, Shi Hao searched for all kinds of different paths, previously heading there. However, it was quite regrettable, the path there had already been cut short.
That path had already been used by a giant tortoise. The massive tortoise with Supreme Hall on its back ascended into the higher realms through the Wall of Gods and Devils.
Even though Shi Hao didn’t successfully use this place back then, it left him with a deep impression.
“Wall of Gods and Devils, scars of the archaic times!” He didn’t forget these eight words.
The carvings of gods and devils were incredibly astonishing. There were all types of stone engravings and battlefields. One could fight with many archaic vicious spirits here.
Inside of every single stone gate, there would be a powerful creature that corresponded with the stone engraving!
At this point, how could Shi Hao not know what kind of place this was? It was a place used by the ancient people to train troops. When the Immortal Ancient Great Era was destroyed, there were surviving experts who were unwilling, creating this training ground.
Those were predecessors who died in war!
Just how many years separated those who built the wall and the so-called Immortal Ancient Great Era? That was an era that should be called archaic.
“The woman who folded paper boats…”
Shi Hao became absent-minded. In one of the stone engravings, he saw the paper boat folding woman.
His eyes became deep, as if he could peer through time and space, gazing all the way to the Kun Peng nest. He previously discovered black paper boats that were dyed in blood there.
“They don’t seem to be people who belong to this time-space. Why is it that she also left behind some traces here?” Shi Hao thought to himself.
Soon afterwards, he became absentminded. This should be something created by others.
Only, were there people who met the paper boat folding woman even before the archaic times?
“Yi, why is this engraving so similar to a person?” Cao Yusheng cried out in alarm.
When he walked out of his burial cave, he moved together with Shi Hao, entering the higher realms. The Heavenly Horned Ant was also like this, following him here right now.
“Ye Qingxian?!” The Heavenly Horned Ant was also shocked.
There were many remains here. They discovered that there were also some engravings of Ye Qingxian.
These two had both visited Desolate Border’s Imperial Pass, they had met Ye Qingxian.
Shi Hao was stunned. Even he was shocked. How could this be? How could Ye Qingxian already have appeared before the archaic times? There were already people who saw her in that age, carving her here?
How was this possible? That was clearly a young lady, Shi Hao had more than one interaction with her. He never sensed an aura of great changes from her body.
What was going on here?
In the end, it had already been a long time since he met Ye Qingxian. After the Desolate Border War completely ended, Ye Qingxian disappeared.
“We actually made this discovery…”
Shi Hao, the Heavenly Horned Ant, and Cao Yusheng all felt a deep sense of shock, finding it hard to understand. In the end, Shi Hao ordered Mu Qing and the others to investigate this, to search through the various lands.
Not long afterwards, they headed into the higher realms. Shi Hao personally made arrangements, using the influence of ‘Imperial Court’ to find all types of clues regarding Ye Qingxian.
In the end, he was shocked. There really were clues in the Nine Heavens Ten Earths. Someone found her statue in certain remains!
“How is that possible?!” Cao Yusheng was stunned. He had also met Ye Qingxian. That was an old monster?
However, this should be the case!
Based on what they learned in Imperial Pass, Ye Qingxian was only a young lady, not an old witch.
“There are more clues!”
Mu Qing received a report, informing Shi Hao.
It was rumored that many years ago, there were people who previously saw Ye Qingxian’s statue in Origin Ancient Mine.
Origin Ancient Mine, the inside was extremely mysterious, those who entered almost all died, difficult for them to continue living. There were all types of dangers and oddities.
However, in the end, there were still some who were lucky enough to come out alive.
For example, Shi Hao, he himself went in there before, obtaining the hand gestures of Six Dao Reincarnations from that place.
“It seems like it is time to make a trip there.” Shi Hao said.
“You are going to go into Origin Ancient Mine?” Cao Yusheng and the Heavenly Horned Ant both opposed it, because that place was too strange, now already sealed up.
“I am now already a supreme being, it’s time to take a look. I recall that there is even a stalk of long life medicine inside. If possible, I wish to bring it out.” Shi Hao insisted on proceeding, not feeling any fear.
Origin Ancient Mine was peaceful and boundless. In the past, there was a lot of black blood that flowed out. It was sealed up by many people working together, it had now already been many years since anyone approached.
In the end, Shi Hao went down, advancing alone, rejecting all others who wished to go with him.
Below, there were many paths, complex like a maze. Back then, Shi Hao almost died, but now, he advanced in a calm manner, not facing any dangers.
“Turns out it was like this, actually a gate. Hm? It leads to Immortal Domain?”
Shi Hao revealed a strange expression. The aura from that gate was extremely familiar, it was not the first time he sensed it. It was similar to the gate Shi Hao used when he entered this realm before.
He never expected there to be a gate hidden in this Origin Ancient Mine! However, it had already been completely sealed!
In the past, the protectors’ descendant Dugu Yun had also found this place, wishing to find clues regarding his ancestors. However, in the end, black blood poured out, forcing him to flee in a sorry state.
Shi Hao tried to attack it, see if he could smash through it in one strike. If he could, then he could enter Immortal Domain through this entrance. This was clearly a path.
In that instant, a mysterious aura surged. Black blood seeped out from that gate, pouring out.
“It really is strange… isn’t this a gate that leads to Immortal Domain? Why is there an inauspicious aura, black blood seeping out?”
Shi Hao continued to attack it. That gate remained unaffected, only inauspicious black blood flowing out, appearing here.
“My path of return, who is knocking on it?” An indistinct and weak voice sounded, as if it came from billions of years ago, as if there was an endless world separating them, the long river of time standing in between.
In that instant, Shi Hao was shaken. He knew what kind of place this was.
