AST 1840 - Reversal, speed is strength
A piercing sound threatened to shatter everyone’s eardrums, as a meteor-like arrow carried a streak of crimson flames rammed into the Nine Continents’ Mountain, causing it to fly backward.
This was as expected, but what was unexpected was the arrow had not lost any momentum, continuing to fly towards Qing Shui.
Qing Shui was shocked. After all, the arrow was blocked by the Nine Continents’ Mountain. With its Shield Attack, it should’ve lessened the momentum of the arrow at least by a bit.
The arrow was too fast and Qing Shui didn’t have the time to react. He couldn’t dodge, but he discovered that the arrow’s power was somewhat familiar.
His instincts kicked in!
Since he had the Parry Heavenly Fate Treasure Pagoda, strong defense and the Paragon Golden Armor that could deflect a life-threatening blow, he simply stood still.
Remaining unmoving was not a sign of no resistance, rather he activated his spiritual sense. A golden dragon soul rose in front of him, letting out a bright, loud dragon roar.
Sheng Jun had moved to intercept the arrow, but she was stopped by a ridiculous sight. Though she was no longer that shocked, given the surprises she had been given today.
The golden dragon soul just swallowed the arrow…..
The burly man who shot the arrow looked disbelievingly at Qing Shui, his body was trembling. The arrow was by no means normal, it carried a hint of his essence, qi, and spirit, but they were swallowed along with the arrow, causing him to suffer.
Qing Shui was already prepared to receive the blow with his body and was even ready for a razor-quick counterattack, not allowing the man to fire another arrow, but that was totally unnecessary.
Nine Yang Dragon Soul, the counter to the fusion of origin qi and spiritual energy. The arrow’s power made even Qing Shui feel fear, as he had no confidence in blocking it. He didn’t want to stake his life to block it.
At that moment, Qing Shui was able to detect the aura of the Nine Yang Dragon Soul on the arrow, which didn’t disappoint him. In fact, it went even better than expected.
The ordinary metal cast of the arrow fell to the floor. Its power had come from the unyielding Yang energy that was consumed by the Nine Yang Dragon Soul.
The Nine Yang Dragon Soul was the most unyielding, unbreakable existence consisting of Yang energy within his Nine Yang Body. His Nine Yang Body was the prerequisite for the Nine Yang Dragon Soul to awaken.
Thinking of his constitution, he would recall Qing Hanye’s Nine Yin Body, the pinnacle of yin and soft physique. They were a match made in heaven, at least in terms of their body constitutions.
Qing Shui didn’t know how this came to be, as Qing Hanye had liked him back then. Perhaps due to their bodies, they attracted each other.
He used to be unaware of this fact, but if they met again today, they would be fixed together. They only hadn’t taken that last step. It seemed that some things were just meant to be.
As this cluttered his head, he quickly turned to look at the enemy, discarding the wild thoughts. This battle made Qing Shui more confident, given that he had gone up against multiple opponents stronger than him, despite using the powers of the Dragon Soul and the Parry Heavenly Fate Treasure Pagoda.
Suddenly, all seven of the leading brutes charged together at Qing Shui, that made him speechless.
This kind of chemistry…...
It seemed like the yakshas were truly as the rumors said. A race of dirty players, using numbers to bully others, not to mention greedy, lustful and bloodthirsty…...
Sheng Jun would not sit idly, immediately rushing in to join him.
Qing Shui smiled at Sheng Jun
His hands waved, Domain of the Nine Palaces
Nine Palace Laws!
Art of Pursuing!
Qing Shui smiled, before activating the Emperor’s Qi.
Upon nearing Qing Shui and Sheng Jun, the opponents found themselves weakened. Their speed cut to half as if they were mortals treading in marshes.
Qing Shui immediately charged in while the burly man was still stunned. He was still wielding the previously broken weapon regardless, as the gap between a cultivator with a weapon and one without a weapon was too immense.
Qing Shui swept his Golden Battle Halberd diagonally, the strong suppression made the brute’s face lose color. If he was hit, he would be done for, just like that.
He dodged the first blow, but Qing Shui cleaved downwards, using his qi to suppress the burly man, forcing him to be unable to dodge further.
The burly man turned pale. In his weakened state, he could only despair at this strike.
Qing Shui was dominant in this battle due to the reduction of the opponents’ speed. To suddenly losing half their speed was equivalent to losing half of their fighting strength.
Speed is power, only the fast cannot be defeated.
There were many experts in the world who specialized in their striking speed, able to slit their opponent’s throat in the blink of an eye.
The path of assassins was similar, as they focused on attacking the weak spots, focused on speedy attacks and killing their opponents as fast as possible while retreating if they couldn’t obtain an advantage.
Of those who practiced their speed, there were those who trained in their striking speed and movement speed. These people could enter a battle and leave it just as easily.
The opponent’s movements were sluggish, causing their power to drop drastically. Not to mention the actual twenty percent decrease in strength, causing them to be on different levels.
Although there were only two experts by Qing Shui’s side, the seven weakened experts on the other sides were mere ants biting an elephant, completely incapable of doing anything.
Qing Shui was carefree, frequently peering off to Sheng Jun, who let out a grand, powerful, holy, and righteous aura with each strike.
The Sacred Fairy Inheritor’s powers.
Sheng Jun didn’t know what she was feeling now. Though she knew this man had some special skills, she didn’t think that he would have such tyrannical crowd control skills. Her heart that didn’t hold much hope, suddenly saw the light at the end of the tunnel.
She meant for Qing Shui to help her distract the enemy and allowed some people to escape, or else they would only become their food.
Now, with this man’s participation, their strength had doubled, while their opponent’s halved. The tides of battle had turned completely.
