AST 2246 – Defeating The Buddha Battle God
“Are you up for the challenge? It’s in the Battle God’s blood and tradition after all,” The bald man spoke up.
There was no lack of Battle Gods around them, but no one had accepted the challenge; it would affect the reputation of their Divine Palace after all. Besides, the two Battle Gods seemed competent, otherwise, they wouldn’t have been this confident.
Even if it was like this, they would have made their move too. However, the Hill Moving Battle God and the stronger Battle Gods were not around and so, Nuo Lan persuaded them to halt while she fetched the Palace Lord.
Qing Shui happened to hear the bald man’s words when he arrived.
With a chuckle, he replied. “Don’t tell me the two of you are the only members of your Divine Palace!”
“How can that be? There are two more.” The bald man rebutted in a serious tone.
After a short pause, the people of the Divine Palace burst into laughter. The bald man was intriguing indeed.
“How about this? Two of you against me. If I don’t defeat you in ten moves, then we’ll consider it my defeat,” Qing Shui suggested.
“How infuriating. You’re belittling me? Young man, you’ll have to use your brains before you talk,” The bald man spoke gravely.
“Don’t worry. I’ll uphold my words.” Qing Shui was unperturbed.
“Why should I believe you? If I hurt you and you decided to ambush us, then how should I explain it to my palace?” The bald man retorted.
“You already had the guts to come here seeking battle, what’s more to fear? Besides, I’m the Palace Lord here. I’m sure that’s enough to persuade you!” Qing Shui thought that the bald man was a little too straightforward, almost to the point of being unsophisticated.
The Beast King Battle God didn’t say a word but kept his eyes on Qing Shui. He wanted to check what was different about Qing Shui but couldn’t decipher anything in that short moment.
“There’s no need for the two us. I’ll defeat you myself. Take this!”
The bald man’s body began shining in gold radiance at his words, exuding a faint Buddha silhouette. His arms doubled in length and thickness; they were like fans. They were exceptionally bright with a golden, piercing radiance.
Giant Buddha Hands!
This was the Buddha Battle God. His hands were the sharpest weapons and the palms seemed to be possessed by Buddha, the guardian deity, as it smashed towards Qing Shui.
A tune of Buddha chants seemed to ring out at that moment. It had a startling effect that seemed to awaken the heart and soul. The pair of hands became saintly, flowing with golden light as if they had become golden knives. They made their way above Qing Shui’s head, about to cleave its way down.
Buddha Diamond Seal!
A statue of a golden Buddha appeared around Qing Shui, turning up with much more dignity than that of the Buddha Battle God’s. It created a giant illusion of a Buddha.
A vague shriek sounded. The golden blade made contact with the Buddha image surrounding Qing Shui, letting out a low whining sound. Qing Shui remained rooted to his spot before attacking with a Buddha Bright Seal.
Countering the Buddha Battle God felt simple for Qing Shui. He didn’t know if it was because of the Buddha Ultimate Technique but he felt as though he was in total control of the battle. Thereafter, Qing Shui’s Flying Swords slid across the Buddha Battle God’s neck.
With Qing Shui’s current cultivation and his Divine Weapon, Flying Sword’s ability, it was naturally powerful beyond comparison. The Flying Sword merely scraped across the Buddha Battle God’s neck, and a stream of blood gushed out.
The cut wasn’t too deep, and the bald man had a thick neck. Qing Shui had no intention of killing him in any case.
The bald man’s body was drenched in cold sweat. Realizing he was still alive, he let out a huge sigh and asked, “How did you learn the Buddha Ultimate Art?”
The bald man was surprised at the Buddha Ultimate Art exhibited by Qing Shui. It was a pity that the only thing he could tell was that it was the Buddha Ultimate Art. After so many years of training under Buddha martial arts, he had a little bit of knowledge about it.
“I learned it by chance. I have a set of Buddha’s True Eyes. I can teach you if there’s an opportunity in the future. It should be of great help to you,” Qing Shui smiled and said.
“Sure, that will be great.” The bald man smiled awkwardly after his words, directing his gaze towards the motionless Beast King Battle God.
“I want to challenge you,” The man with the embroidered Archive of Demonic Beast robe looked at Qing Shui and said.
“Sure!” Qing Shui nodded.
The man leaped into the air. With a wave of his hand, about ten demonic beasts of different variations appeared around him. The blood in these demonic beasts wasn’t shabby either. For example, there was an Eight-Headed Golden Lion and an Iguana King among them.
Not forgetting three of the Seven-Headed Moonwolf Kings.
The Beast King Battle God was a Beast Tamer as its name suggested. Qing Shui observed the demonic beasts and noted their terrifying power; they were all in the ranks of Divine Beasts, especially the Eight-Headed Golden Lion. Its aura was scary, and perhaps it had a similar bloodline with the Nine-Headed Golden Lion. It was a pity that the blood wasn’t pure, and so it would be difficult for it to become Nine-Headed Golden Lion.
The Nine-Headed Golden Lion’s power was exceptionally horrifying. It was one of the top-tier creatures that had ever walked among the continent.
The Iguana King was a control type beast, and regardless of whether it was on land or water, or even elements in the air which were stickier, it would be able to reduce the speed of all existences in the area. It could do so while remaining at ease and its power could increase gradually in its domain.
The Iguana King had a huge mouth and sharp teeth. It could even swallow a mountain. Rumor had it that there was a cave in its mouth, and everything that sounds through it would be smashed into smithereens.
Besides its mouth, it had six thick legs. The two legs in front were the most unique; these legs didn’t touch the ground and were razor-sharp. They were longer than the other four legs. As if they were tentacles, the two legs were agile and could trap their prey before swallowing them whole.
Qing Shui observed the Beast King Battle God before summoning his Diamond White Tiger King, the Dragon Slaying Beast, the Dragon Spider, the Dark Phoenix, and his Golden Scaled Dragon Elephant. As for the Thunderous Beast and the others, he decided not to summon them yet.
Qing Shui’s action had the Beast King Battle God’s lips twitching upwards. Based on quantity alone, he had more than Qing Shui. As a Beast Tamer, he thought that his demonic beasts should have been stronger than Qing Shui’s as well.
Qing Shui’s demonic beasts really did not compare to his opponent’s as of now.
When he used Battle God Halo and the formations, their abilities increased significantly but only the Diamond White Tiger King’s powers were worth mentioning.
The demonic beast growled in mid-air, both sides ready for battle.
The Dragon Slaying Beast was able to suppress the Iguana King’s bloodline as it had Dragon Bloodline flowing through its veins.
The Moonwolf King was strong as well. Even though the three Moonwolf Kings were not purebred, they were still terrifying in power. According to legends, the Nine-Headed Moonwolf King was one of the greatest demonic beasts around.
There was movement. One of the Moonwolf Kings initiated the first move.
Something akin to a Wind Sword flew towards the Diamond White Tiger King with incredible speed.
Qing Shui knew that there must have been something on the Beast King Battle God that would be beneficial in supporting demonic beasts. Any typical beast tamers would have something like that. If there were any Divine Artifacts that could provide immense help to demonic beasts, then they would be even more terrifying in power. This could let the beast tamer’s strength increase substantially as well. After all, all beast tamers relied on their demonic beasts.
The Beast King Battle God rode on a demonic beast.
Stormy Xuan Snake!
It was a wind-type demonic beast, filled with wind abilities. Not only could it move with incredible speed; it was also able to reduce half of its own energy, allowing its body to move with the force and reduce half the damage sustained. However, Stormy Xuan Snake’s attack powers were feeble.
