AST 1816 - The Nine Heavenly Immortal Slaying Great Formation, Sheng Huang was in danger
After he went through the valley, the next thing which came into his sight was yet another valley. However, the mountain started to look indistinct beyond the distance of five hundred meters. Furthermore, there was also an intense murderous aura being emitted from the area.
Qing Shui halted his step. In his consciousness, an enormous red area was spotted right in front of him. The entire area was covered in red, bloody red color and it was giving out a very vicious aura.
It was a formation! A killing formation!
Qing Shui sensed the aura of the formation and it was very terrifying. Suddenly, it became clear to Qing Shui that Shen Huang might have been trapped by this formation, otherwise, it would be impossible for the opponent to deal with her.
Qing Shui stopped, however, at this moment, a voice came through, “Let me be honest with you, what’s in front of you is the Nine Heavenly Immortal Slaying Great Formation. She is right within it. If you really want to save her, go down and look for her!”
“I haven’t seen her with my own eyes, how would I know if she is in it? Do you seriously think that I will be so gullible?” Qing Shui was trying hard to feel the surrounding as he spoke. However, the opponent’s voice was an echo.
Qing Shui saw a spot with pretty Melodious Platform Stones. The opponent’s voice reflected through the stone and went into his ear.
“It’s up to you whether to believe it or not. If you don’t, wait to take her corpse. Oh yes, she isn’t the only one that’s in it. I am not sure if any accidents will happen. Have you seen those pink aura? It’s used to promote estrus.”
At the moment when he finished speaking, the voice started to break into laughter. Qing Shui seemed to be looking at the faint pink color. Meanwhile, he had already released a few Jade Emperor Bees quietly.
Qing Shui already expected that the enemies would soon discover the presence of the Jade Emperor Bee in this valley. Thus, he made up his mind to use them as baits. As long as Qing Shui could locate the source of the voice, he would be able to defeat the enemy. He mustn’t act rashly nor recklessly, otherwise, not only would he fail to save Shen Huang, but he might also lose his life as a result.
“Such an insignificant trick!”
After a cold snort, a Jade Emperor Bee immediately turned into dust, but thanks to the attack, Qing Shui managed to memorize the enemy’s aura with his formidable Spiritual Sense. By tracking the aura, he managed to find the hiding spot of the opponent.
Qing Shui was able to see the entire person in his consciousness. He should be quite young considering he had a middle-aged look; he was hiding in a place where Qing Shui didn’t expect him to be. Initially, it was impossible for Qing Shui’s Spiritual Sense to sense him. Luckily, he made a mistake just now by making his move.
At where the opponent was, there was also a gigantic size man almost at the size of a tower. He was as black as carbon. Qing Shui suspected that black people also existed within this world. However, the gigantic man had the face of a genuine eastern man.
Qing Shui continued to move forward like he hadn’t noticed their presence. However, if one looked closely, they would know that he was slowly approaching the area where the two people were hiding. It was just that he was moving at a very slow pace.
Although Qing Shui seemed like he was trying to approach the formation, he was actually trying to get close to their hiding place. He felt that it would be safer this way. Actually, it would still be all right if he was to confront them now. He was just afraid that anything unexpected might happen.
“And I thought you care a lot about her, it seems that you are just another person who fears death.” The voice once again came through. This time, if Qing Shui looked closely, he would know that it was the Formation Master that was talking, because he could see his lips moving.
At the moment when he finished speaking, Qing Shui immediately noticed something fishy going on. He quickly charged towards them and in a flash, he was already in front of them.
Nine Palace Step… It enabled him to travel the distance in a flash. In just a few movements, he already arrived in front of them.
The black guy screamed out loud while swinging both of his fists towards Qing Shui.
Qing Shui had a cold smile on his face. Simultaneously, he also greeted it back with his fist.
The enormous force of impact immediately blew the black guy backward. In terms of cultivation, the Formation Master also seemed to be quite hopeless, he immediately tried to run away. Formation Master could escape easier than the average people.
In a flash, his figure disappeared from where he initially was. After that, he immediately appeared beside the black guy and grabbed onto him before he disappeared again. Before he left, he didn’t forget to taunt Qing Shui, “Catch me if you can!”
He had underestimated Qing Shui’s ability; Qing Shui was also a Formation Master. He actually thought that he could escape from Qing Shui by relying on the simplest Confounding Step and Formation Step. Like before, Qing Shui continued to show a cold smile. At the next instant, he immediately appeared in front of them and dropped his fingers on both of their Shanzhong Acupoints.
The Shanzhong Acupoint was a deadly acupoint. However, Qing Shui didn’t kill them. At least for now, he wouldn’t want them to die immediately. Though they didn’t die, they still spurted out fresh blood as Qing Shui poked them.
Though Qing Shui wasn’t an assassin, he had the quickest and most fatal method to kill someone. His ability to hit on a person’s acupoint as well as snapping their meridians was a very fearsome battle technique. Furthermore, he could also use it through his weapons. At the moment, Qing Ming was also cultivating this ability.
Not only Qing Ming, Qing Yin also cultivated the Taichi Fist, she could snap acupoints and meridians. By relying on enough speed, they could win against a stronger opponent. It was an unexpected trick and futile to guard against.
“Tell me, who is after me and the Phoenix God Organization?” Qing Shui consumed everything into the Nine Palace. They couldn’t escape even if they wanted to.
“Hmph!” The formation master snorted coldly and remained silent.
Qing Shui revealed a faint smile on his face. He then poked them a few times with his finger. As he did so, their expression started to change.
By now, they felt as if thousands of parasitic worms were tearing their bodies. The intense itchy, painful and disgusting sensation down to their core was very hard to imagine.
The huge black guy even began to scream out in agony. It was as if he had run into a demon, he looked very terrified.
Meanwhile, the Formation Master also didn’t seem to be coping so well with it. After holding on for a while, the black guy was no longer able to hold on and said, “I will tell you everything you want to know!”
Qing Shui patiently released the black guy. He was willing to release whoever that was willing to speak.
The old Formation Master was also unable to withstand it and it was futile for him to hold on. He said in a weak tone, “Me too.”
“There is someone who is willing to speak now. I don’t need you to do so.” Qing Shui smiled and said.
“He doesn’t know as much as I do.” The old man said in a weak tone. He sounded very anxious. It could be seen that he didn’t want to suffer more.
Qing Shui released him. That was precisely what he wanted to hear.
“Tell me, who is the one that’s after me and Shen Huang?” Qing Shui asked calmly.
“Jin Feng, the Heavy Region Sword Sect and the Shadow Phoenix Pavilion.” The Formation Master said softly.
Qing Shui extended his hand and once again poked their acupoints. He also did it to the black guy to let them feel the pain from before. Qing Shui was able to analyze the things which he just said with his Spiritual Sense and it was likely to be a lie.
“The Shadow Phoenix Pavilion isn’t a part of it.” The black guy quickly said.
Qing Shui extended his hand and released them. Then he said softly, “I can clearly feel when you guys are lying. There is no more next time, or else, I will let you suffer.”
By now, they viewed Qing Shui as an existence more fearsome than a demon. Even a demon wasn’t as ruthless as him when it came to torturing someone.
“How is Shen Huang now?” Qing Shui asked in a calm tone. Nevertheless, deep down, he was worried.
“I don’t know. The three Sect Lords of the Heavy Region Sword Sect are inside along with Jin Feng. I think it’s very hard for Shen Huang to gain any advantages from them, even without the Aphrodisiac that causes an effect on her body.”
“How about them?”
“They have already taken the antidote in advance.”
