Chapter 114 - Life Severing Saber Reveals its Might!
Under Song Shengping's orders, the crowd of demonized disciples charged straight into the array.
"The array is useless, it's just mist, just the mist, that's all! Hurry, hurry to the mountaintop!" a demonized disciple cried joyously.
"Same here, it's just mist, hahaha!"
"It's just Gu Hai alone, let's catch him!"
"Don't let him escape!"...
The crowd of demonized men ran towards the top of the mountain.
On the way, every demonized human quickly metamorphosed. As the scarlet malevolent aura circled around their bodies and their hair transformed into snakes one by one, each and everyone obtained a big boost in their strength. After all, Gu Hai's fame had spread far and wide. Although everyone came here following orders, they were still extremely careful; it couldn't hurt to take precautions.
"Song Shengping, you should go in as well, hurry! Go, you can pinch Gu Hai to death with just a wave of your hand!" Li Qinghe urged Song Shengping.
Nonetheless, Song Shengping shook his head, "This Gu Hai maybe using tricks! Let's wait!"
"You don't believe me!" Li Qinghe sighed, depressed.
Song Shengping didn't pay any heed to Li Qinghe's advice and waited patiently.
Eight hundred demonized disciples were all rushing towards the top of the mountain. Very soon, the first demonized man reached the peak.
Amid the swirling clouds, he still spotted the three thousand statues at a glance.
"Statues! Li Qinghe was speaking the truth!" The demonized man's eyes lit up at once.
Suddenly, a jet black saber came thrusting straight at him.
"Not good!" An astounded look took over that demonized man's face as he hastily dodged.
Nonetheless, the black saber still left a wound on him and suddenly, streams of black qi from the black saber drilled into that wound.
Inside the black qi, tiny little black skulls congealed one after another before they started tearing and eating that demonized human's flesh and blood.
Having just discovered Gu Hai, that demonized man let out a blood-curdling scream as countless tiny little skulls drilled their way into his body. In the blink of an eye, the demonized human was left badly mutilated; his skin and flesh disappearing every moment.
Just as Gu Hai left that place, the black qi had already passed him by, leaving a pile of bones behind.
Having devoured the flesh and blood of that demonized man, the tiny little skulls turned back into black qi and drilled its way into the Life Severing Saber. In the next moment, streams of energy surged into Gu Hai's body bit by bit.
"Hu, so comfortable!" Gu Hai exhaled a long breath as if all the pores in his body had opened instantly.
Just a moment ago, the blood-curdling scream of that slain man spread in all directions in the blink of an eye.
Hearing this, even Song Shengping, who was outside the array, had a change in expression. He promptly took out his long sword, keeping a sharp lookout.
Inside the array and the swirling clouds, many demonized disciples also stopped right where they were. The snakes on their heads, on the other hand, were extremely agitated.
Suddenly, a scream of terror resounded amid the clouds. "Hurry, I saw everything, it was Gu Hai, he killed Senior Brother!"
And right at that moment, Gu Hai swung his saber at him.
The man promptly blocked Gu Hai's saber with his sword, but the Life Severing Saber broke the sword instantly, and drew a gaping cut along one of the snakes on that man's head.
And then, billowing black qi violently surged into the wound.
"Ah~, ah~, ah~, ah~!"
That man gave out a series of blood-curdling screams before turning into a pile of bones.
Those miserable screams were extremely appalling, striking terror into the hearts of everyone inside the array.
In this thick mist, the crowd of demonized men reduced their speed even further.
The crowd of demonized humans slowly gathered into teams as they approached the center. Everyone's line of sight was obstructed by the mists, so they could not see clearly. It was only Gu Hai who could see the whole situation.
Drawing his saber, Gu Hai charged into a team of five men.
"It's Gu Hai, kill him quickly!"
Deng, deng, deng, deng!
Gu Hai started a bloody massacre of the small team. They were all in the Xiantian Stage. And as a seventh level Xiantian cultivator who was cultivating external technique, Gu Hai's explosive force was comparable to a Golden Core Stage cultivator. In addition, he had the Life Severing Saber, which no doubt was a masterwork weapon. As soon as any weapon came into contact with it, its victim's sword aura or sword would collapse immediately. And as long as it left a wound, the demonized human would be devoured by thousands upon thousands of tiny little skulls instantly.
"Ah~, Ah~, Ah~!"
"What saber is that, no!"
"You have advanced to the Xiantian Stage not too long ago, how can you be so powerful?"...
Amid the series of hair-raising screams, whatever the black qi swept over, all that was left were piles of bones.
The screams drew the ever more vigilant crowd of demonized humans towards him. The snakes of their head looked all around in agitation.
"Gu Hai, come out, I want to eat your heart and liver!"
"I want to eat you, come out for me!"...
Amid the thick swirling clouds of fog, blood-curdling screams accompanied by cursing rang out again and again. Listening to these screams, the demonized disciples dared not move, they just moved closer to each other, back to back, shoulder to shoulder, keeping a sharp lookout in all directions.
Grabbing the Life Severing Saber, Gu Hai's entire body fiercely quivered as streams of power surged into his body, making him inexplicably excited. In this mood, he felt as if he could massacre everyone completely.
At this moment, swirls of black qi were circling around Gu Hai, like they would cover him completely. As more and more demonized humans fell under his hand, the black qi also kept on increasing.
Gu Hai rubbed his left shoulder. Just now, when he was attacking a team of demonized humans, his shoulder was wounded by the sword of a disciple. However, Gu Hai, without paying attention to this wound, continued to circle around the statues, doing all he could to guard them.
"So, there you are!" Gu Hai stared with widened eyes as he lunged towards another team of ten people.
"Gu Hai is coming, quickly, come to this side, come here!" a demonized man screamed as the snakes on his head turned incredibly violent.
Deng, deng, deng...!
The Life Severing Saber broke every sword and saber in its path, and quickly slashed at everyone.
Tyrannical qi blades rained down on the team of demonized men as they desperately tried to defend themselves. After all, Gu Hai was simply too strong for them.
Suddenly, a man was enveloped in a cloud of black qi as countless tiny little skulls devoured him clean in the next moment, leaving only a skeleton behind.
"Ah, ah, ah, you, devil!" a nearby demonized man screamed in shock.
"Devil?! You are the devils, I am just killing devils, enforcing justice on behalf of heavens!" Gu Hai shouted at the top of his voice as he continued to attack.
With a swing of his saber, numerous sabers and swords were broken apart. Without any weapon, they were completely at Gu Hai's mercy.
"Ah~!" "Ah~!" "Ah~!"...
A series of hair-raising screams rang out as the only remaining member of that team ran away. Gu Hai promptly chased after him.
"Don't chase me, don't chase me!" that demonized man screamed in terror.
Separating that man's head from his shoulders with a swing of his saber, Gu Hai turned about and charged at other disciples.
In a flash, the battle inside the grand array grew even more intense.
Outside the array, Song Shengping's eyelid twitched madly.
"How is this possible? It's just Gu Hai? Why are they screaming like that? Idiots, they can't even finish one Gu Hai!" Song Shengping's face turned ugly as he berated them.
"Song Shengping, go, quickly go!" Li Qinghe said anxiously.
Song Shengping's eyelid twitched a bit, but he was still hesitant.
Inside the array, Gu Hai finally encountered a Golden Core cultivator.
In the aftermath of their head-on clash, Gu Hai was completely pushed back. At the end of the day, he was simply not as good as that Golden Core Stage cultivator.
"Hahaha, since you have come across me, you are finished! A Xiantian cultivator is still a Xiantian cultivator!" The snakes on that Golden Core Stage cultivator's head hissed ferociously.
Suddenly, Gu Hai charged at the Golden Core demonized cultivator again. "Come on! Cut!"
"Hmph, Song Jia Sword Arts, Break!" that Golden Core demonized man roared at the top of his voice.
A thunderous bang immediately followed as the longsword of that Golden Core demonized fighter was broken into pieces.
"What saber is this?" the Golden Core demonized man cried out in terror.
The sword qi of the demonized man left a wound on Gu Hai's leg. However, the Life Severing Saber also left a bloody wound on his arm.
Holding his leg, Gu Hai turned around and started walking. His movements were slightly impeded.
"Don't run!" that Golden Core demonized man shouted coldly as he tried to chase after Gu Hai.
But in the next moment, he was surrounded by billowing black qi.
"Ah, ah~, noooo!" the Golden Core Stage demonized man gave out a miserable scream.
In the blink of an eye, a pile of bones crashed to the ground.
In a short while, two hundred skeletons were already lying on the mountain. All the demonized men who were arriving later had a horrified look plastered on their faces.
"No, how is this possible?" the demonized disciples called out in horror.
Gu Hai, with the Life Severing Saber in his hand, was constantly moving all around, hunting everyone.
And as for the demonized disciples, some of them were so terrified that they started retreating, only a small majority of them were still pressing on.
Seeing so many of the demonized disciples fleeing, Song Shengping, who was down the mountain, had an ugly look on his face.
"Bastards, so many of you can't even kill Gu Hai!?" Song Shengping yelled out angrily.
"Chief, Senior Brother, Martial Uncle, all of them are dead, did you not hear them screaming? They screamed and then, they were gone! Completely gone!" that demonized man cried in horror.
"Song Shengping, you should go quickly, if you drag it out any longer, it will be very disadvantageous for us! Hurry, the array is already scrapped, only Gu Hai is still there, what are you so afraid of? What are you scared of?" Li Qinghe screamed apprehensively.
Hearing this, a complex look showed up on Song Shengping's face.
At this time, sudden loud crackling sounds came from the array as the clouds in the array suddenly undulated.
"Dammit, all the spirit stones are depleted!" As Gu Hai's saber pierced through a demonized man, a ghastly look appeared on his face.
With the spirit stones completely depleted, the grand array suddenly disappeared as the clouds gradually scattered.
Suddenly, all the demonized humans, whether they were running down the mountain or charging up the mountain, stopped right where they were for a moment, and looked up the mountain together. Finally, they clearly saw Gu Hai.
Gu Hai had a long and thin saber in his hand. His hair was hanging loose. His clothes were tattered in many places. There were five wounds on his body, from which blood was constantly flowing out. More importantly, with the black qi swirling around him, Gu Hai looked more like a fiend.
At this moment, Gu Hai was standing next to the three thousand statues, guarding them.
All around the statues, skeletons were lying on the ground. And to everyone's surprise, there were no clothes on the skeletons.
At the sight of this, Song Shengping's, Li Qinghe's, and every other demonized person's eyes widened in shock.
Where are the corpses? Earlier, weren't our Senior Brothers, Junior Brothers, and Martial Uncles screaming, what happened to their corpses?
Gone! Their corpses are gone! There are only those two hundred skeletons!
Gazing at those skeletons one by one, everyone was struck with a jolt. What the hell had happened?
When the demonized humans were eating humans, they were fearless. However, gazing at those skeletons that had still been alive not too long ago, now completely devoid of any flesh and blood, a chill rose from the bottom of their souls and spread throughout their entire bodies.
The demonized men who were rushing up the mountain halted their footsteps at once as goosebumps exploded all over their bodies.
Even Song Shengping's facial muscles were twitching. Gazing at Gu Hai and the black qi around him, Song Shengping was struck with a chill.
"Hurry up and go!" Li Qinghe screamed at him.
"Right!" Song Shengping rose into the sky, treading on the air.
Although Song Shengping's heart was gripped with a chill, Song Shengping also knew that Gu Hai wasn't his opponent. He decided to eliminate Gu Hai first.
But right at that moment, a ripple in space appeared not too far away from Gu Hai.
"Hmm?" Gu Hai's expression changed as a joyous look appeared.
"What? Is Grandmaster Liunian about to return?" Song Shengping's face warped in shock.
Suddenly, Song Shengping rushed towards the place where the ripples were originating. It appeared that Song Shengping would cut Grandmaster Liunian down as soon as he emerged.
"Not good!" Realizing that Grandmaster Liunian would be ambushed, Gu Hai's countenance changed.
"Life Severer, Cut!" Gu Hai shouted aloud as he jumped into the air, swinging his saber at Song Shengping.
A billowing mass of black qi erupted towards Song Shengping. This strike had Gu Hai's entire strength behind it!
Noticing the black qi coming at him, Song Shengping's expression changed as he swung his sword laterally.
The sword aura and saber qi clashed with each other. The powerful shockwave from the subsequent collision sent Gu Hai flying. He was sent crashing into a small building, where he lay buried in the rubble, coughing up blood.
Right at that moment, a rift opened up in the rippling area, and a small section of white robes emerged from it.
He is coming out!
"Go to Hell!" Song Shengping shouted out as he swung his sword at the emerging figure.
A powerful sword aura rushed straight towards the robes. He was trying to kill Grandmaster Liunian as he emerged!
Just as it seemed that the strike would pierce through those robes, a hand suddenly extended out from the rift and congealed a palm aura.
The sword qi was abruptly stopped in the air with a loud clang, deftly caught by a hand congealed out of aura.
"What?" Song Shengping's countenance distorted in shock and horror at the sight!Chapter Notes:
