Moreover, Song Shuhang’s <
"Phew~" Song Shuhang let out a sigh. He pretended to let down his guard to draw out the last ambusher.
The hidden Cultivator Sunflower sneered. He suddenly stood up and instantly appeared behind Song Shuhang; his big body was agile like a feline’s. Then, he held a pointed rod with both his hands as he thrust it toward Song Shuhangs.
The barrier of the armor talisman lit up once again, blocking Cultivator Sunflower’s attack.
He came out! Song Shuhang didn’t hesitate and took a step back.
Cultivator Sunflower was disappointed at failing his attempt; he jumped backward. Then, he used his spiritual pressure and said in a grave tone to Song Shuhang, "Your resistance is futile, Stressed by a Mountain of Books! You have no chance of winning against me."
"Were you sent here by Young Master Hai?" Song Shuhang said indifferently. At the same time, he shot a look at the ‘armor talisman’ protecting his body. It had almost run out of its power. Another attack from Cultivator Sunflower and it would break. He was worthily a disciple of a great sect like the Limitless Demon Sect. That attack with the rod just now was comparable to that of a normal cultivator of the Second Stage.
"Hehe. You can think whatever you want, but don’t even think of trying to buy time. I already sent someone to stall the senior that was with you last time. Just obediently accept your fate!" Cultivator Sunflower slightly bent his body and activated a low-rank magical treasure. "Green Breeze Speed Boost!"
The surface of his body had been enveloped by a pale ring of green air. This increased his speed several times.
Then, his silhouette immediately disappeared and reappeared next to Song Shuhang, trying to stab his abdomen with the pointed rod, "Don’t worry, I won’t kill you. I need you alive…"
His speed was just too fast. Song Shuhang didn’t even have time to avoid it.
The barrier of the armor talisman lit up once again and blocked Cultivator Sunflower's attack.
Song Shuhang took advantage of this opportunity and put some distance between them with a somersault. At the same time, the remaining energy of the ‘armor talisman’ was depleted.
He was just too fast. Without the sword talisman, he would have no chance of winning.
"Doudou!" Song Shuhang shouted. It was time for Doudou to show his might.
"Wahaha! I already knew that you took me out for a walk this morning just because you needed my help. Don’t worry; I’ve made the necessary preparations! I went ahead and took your saber. Catch it, no need to thank me!" Doudou used a voice transmission technique so that only Song Shuhang would hear him. At the same time, he raised his paw and threw a long black saber toward Song Shuhang; it steadily fell into his hands.
It was the treasured saber Broken Tyrant.
Song Shuhang held the treasured saber and stood there dumbfounded...
What was the point of giving him the saber!
The only technique he knew was the <
However, there was no time to think about that.
Cultivator Sunflower’s body flashed once again. He spun the pointed rod in his hand and used it as an electric drill to thrust toward Song Shuhang. If this rod were to stab someone, they would surely be pierced from side to side.
Right now, the armor talisman protecting his body had already lost its power. And since he didn’t have a second treasure to preserve his life, he absolutely couldn’t let the rod touch him!
Song Shuhang quickly raised his saber, welcoming Cultivator Sunflower’s ruthless attack.
The rod in Cultivator Sunflower’s hands was divided in two. Moreover, the strength of the saber didn’t reduce in the slightest; it kept going forward, aiming at Cultivator Sunflower’s arm.
The treasured saber Broken Tyrant was the peerless treasure of the Moon Saber Sect and could cut the body of a cultivator of the Fourth Stage. The rod used by Cultivator Sunflower was only made of fine steel—it obviously wouldn’t be able to block the saber.
Cultivator Sunflower quickly retreated, evading the attack aimed at his arm.
And then, just as he looked at the treasured saber in Song Shuhang’s hand, a hint of greed flashed through his eyes. If he could obtain this saber, his strength would increase by a large margin.
Wait, there is something wrong!
Where the hell did this saber come from?
When he previously attacked, this saber appeared in Stressed by a Mountain of Books’ hand out of thin air.
Cultivator Sunflower couldn't see Doudou.
He racked his brain and thought of a possibility—was that senior cultivator named ‘White’ hiding nearby? Did the member of the ‘subdistrict office’ in charge of making his temporary residence permit fail to delay him?
If that cultivator named White was really here, he wouldn’t even have the chance of escaping.
‘I have no choice,’ Cultivator Sunflower thought. It didn’t matter if the senior cultivator named White was here or not; only by capturing Stressed by a Mountain of Books would he have a chance to come out of this alive!
It took a long time to describe, but all of this actually happened in an instant.
Cultivator Sunflower resolutely threw away the part of the pointed rod that was still in his hands. Then, both his hands made a grabbing motion—one was aimed at Song Shuhang, the other was trying to snatch away his saber.
Song Shuhang didn’t back down. He tightly grabbed Broken Tyrant and swung the saber madly in Cultivator Sunflower’s direction. He hadn’t learned any saber technique. Therefore, he could only aim at his face and thigh in a random slash.
Cultivator Sunflower didn’t dare to block this sharp saber with his bare hands. Therefore, for the time being, he decided to aim at Song Shuhang alone!
At this time, Doudou’s voice echoed once again in his ears, "Shuhang, stop randomly swinging the saber! Use a saber technique!"
‘I don’t know any saber technique!’ Song Shuhang roared inwardly. If he knew a saber technique, he would have used it already!
After a while, Cultivator Sunflower had yet to seize Song Shuhang; this caused him to become somewhat anxious: It won’t do. I can’t keep wasting time!
He made up his mind and decided to use his low-rank magical treasure once again. "Green Breeze Speed Boost!"
There was a huge disparity in speed between someone that had opened two apertures and someone that had opened five. And if we add the ‘speed boost’ on top of it, Cultivator Sunflower’s speed was so fast that Song Shuhang couldn’t even react to it!
However, this technique put a very big strain on the user’s body. Cultivator Sunflower, who had a body that far exceeded a cultivator of the same rank, could use it twice a day at most.
Therefore, this was his last chance!
Cultivator Sunflower took a step, and his body disappeared.
When he reappeared, he was behind Song Shuhang!
‘You're mine!’ Cultivator Sunflower rejoiced in his heart. He aimed at the saber in Song Shuhang’s hand with one hand, and at the latter’s throat with another!
[Innate Skill of the Eye Aperture, Expert Sight!] When Cultivator Sunflower used the ‘speed boost’, Song Shuhang promptly used the innate skill of the Eye Aperture.
He could clearly see Cultivator Sunflower moving and arriving behind him. However, even if his eyes could see it, it didn’t mean that his body could keep up with it.
‘What should I do?’ Song Shuhang racked his brain, trying to think of something.
And just as he was seeing Cultivator Sunflower’s palm getting closer and closer… he recalled something.
Raging flames… and a single slash capable of burning down the heavens.
He turned over his wrist and spun the saber.
The remaining qi and blood in his Eye and Heart Apertures exploded.
The ancient bronze ring on his finger shone slightly, and the formation within it activated.
"Swoosh~" the entire saber caught fire...
