Chapter 146 - Who killed more
Guo Cheng hated Xiao Yuemei and Qin Yun to the core, so he did not wish for them to enter the Bone Refining Formation. This was especially true for Xiao Yue Mei, who previously refused to listen to his arrangements, causing him to lose all face.
Qin Yun secretly admired that wild girl, Xiao Yue Mei. She was able to sit here quietly for five days. He was truly worried that Xiao Yue Mei would suddenly go crazy.
Xiao Yue Mei originally could not sit still but seeing Guo Cheng's anxious look, she was very happy and was able to endure it.
The students of the Three Xuan Academy also did not rest because they wanted to see if Wu Youchen's team could return.
Thus, everyone within the valley waited quietly in the middle of the night.
Time slowly passed. The pitch-black sky slowly lit up. Nine scorching suns rose into the sky, signaling the end of this trial to hunt and kill ghost beasts.
"Time's up. Wu Youchen's team failed to return on time, so they were eliminated. The victors are Qin Yun and Xiao Yue Mei."
As Du Gui said this, the Vice Principal of the Ling Xuan Wu Academy, Luo Ke, suddenly shouted, "Wait!"
"Dean Luo, what's the matter? Now the result is very clear! " Du Gui said.
Luo Ke asked, "Teacher Du, if one obtains a single Soul Essence, how will you calculate the result? The students of our Ling Xuan Wu Academy have killed powerful ghost beasts. Because the corpses of ghost beasts are too big they can only take the soul essence inside."
Qin Yun and Xiao Yue Mei looked at each other and their eyes were filled with ridicule and amusement. That was because they still had a lot of Soul Essences in their hands.
After Du Gui heard this, he frowned and said "A single Soul Essence is equal to fifty Ghost Beasts!"
Luo Ke looked at one of the captains and shouted, "You don't need to hide it either. Although the soul essence is very precious, if you can enter the Bone Refining Formation, you might be able to enter the seventh level of the Martial Body. At that time, you can kill even more powerful ghost beasts and obtain their soul essence."
Qin Yun sneered in his heart. He could tell with a glance that the reason why Luo Ke had given the Soul Essence to the students was to cheat at this critical juncture.
Guo Cheng smiled and said, "A ghost beast that can form its own soul is very powerful and can match fifty ghost beasts. If the students of the Ling Xuan Wu Academy can obtain their soul essence, then my Tian Xuan Martial Arts Academy will recognize them as well."
He was smiling on the surface but in his heart, he was cursing how despicable Luo Ke was. If Wu Youchen had any hope of winning, they would be defeated by this move as well.
And right now, Wu Youchen and company had yet to return. Furthermore, he did not want to see Qin Yun and Xiao Yue Mei achieve victory, so he could only support Luo Ke.
The leader of the Ling Xuan Wu Academy took out four green Soul Essences and handed them over to Du Gui. He said, "Teacher Du, this can count as two hundred ghost beasts, right?"
When Huo Zhong saw them, he swore in a low voice, "Damn it, we let these guys turn the tables. Damn it!"
Du Gui's expression was a little unnatural. How could he not see through this? However, he did not know what to do now.
"Teacher Du, you are the referee. Quickly, determine the outcome. Our Lin Xuan Wu Academy's team is equivalent to hunting two hundred and eighty ghost beasts. Qin Yun and company only have two hundred and forty-five. We have won!" Luo Ke said with a very proud smile.
The envious students of the Three Xuan Academy could not help but laugh. Qin Yun and Xiao Yue Mei did not win in the end. It made them very happy.
"Lin Xuanwu Academy...."
Du Gui's words were cut off as he saw Qin Yun walk over with two Soul Essences in his hand.
Everyone was astonished. Qin Yun actually had a Soul Essence as well. Furthermore, they appeared to be even brighter than the Lin Xuanwu Academy.
"Teacher Du, we wanted to hide it too but we had no choice but to take it out now to win! These two soul essence are equivalent to one hundred ghost beasts. Right now, we have three hundred and forty-five." Qin Yun said with a smile.
Luo Ke cursed in his heart. He never expected Qin Yun to have a soul essence too.
Guo Cheng was also very surprised!
For a student of the Ling Xuan Wu Academy to have a soul essence, it was certain that it had been given to him long ago. Furthermore, Qin Yun's soul essence looked so bright that one could tell with a glance that it had only just been obtained!
Qin Yun and Xiao Yue Mei were actually able to hunt and kill such powerful ghost beasts!
Du Gui was also shocked as he sighed repeatedly in his heart.
The students of the Ling Xuan Wu Academy took out another four Soul Essences and said, "We are still hiding them, now we have an additional two hundred"
When Qin Yun saw it, he smiled and took out four Soul Essences.
When everyone saw this, they cried out in alarm!
Previously, it was a competition of Ghost Beasts but now it's a competition of Soul Essences!
"Take them all out!" Luo Ke was anxious because these Soul Essence were originally meant for Du Gui. After all, Du Gui had shared the cultivation technique with everyone.
Du Gui was secretly happy, he was able to obtain so many Soul Essences.
The students of the Ling Xuan Wu Academy clenched their teeth and took out six Soul Essences in one go. Now, they had a total of fourteen Soul Essences.
When Qin Yun saw it, he took out another eight. There were a total of fourteen of them!
"Ha Ha, do you have more?" Qin Yun said with a smile.
Luo ke's mouth began to twitch. These fourteen soul essence had all been wasted.
The students of the Ling Xuan Wu Academy could no longer afford it. Du Gui cheerfully took the Soul Essences before announcing Qin Yun and Xiao Yue Mei as victors!
Qin Yun did not feel any pain for his soul essence because he still had dozens of items in his storage space. Furthermore, he was grateful to Du Gui for learning the Divine Imperial Art and the Concentrated Spirit Slaughtering Art.
Actually, the seniors, such as Du Gui and Guo Cheng, were well aware of this. Qin Yun and Xiao Yue Mei had relied on their own strength to obtain their own soul essence. There might even be some that they had just not taken out.
This kind of strength was the most shocking!
"Ahhhh...!!" Suddenly, someone from the team from the Ling Xuan Wu Academy shouted. His skin had turned black, his eyes were bloodshot, his hair was wildly flying, and a black aura was billowing.
"The Nine Yang Divine Spirit … The Nine Yang Spirit …" The student shouted crazily.
"Quickly kill him!" Qin Yun hurriedly shouted as he felt great shock in his heart. That mysterious evil soul power had actually chased him here!
"Who will do it? Should I do it? " Xiao Yue Mei said coldly.
"I'll do it!" After Du Gui finished speaking, his eyes flashed and he released an invisible spiritual force that struck the student's head.
The student bled out of his seven orifices. He was already dead!
The student who went to hunt for the spirit beasts had changed on the sixth day of his return.
Qin Yun was told that possessed would change within seven days. He thought it was just a casual remark but he never expected that someone had been possessed by an evil spirit.
"You guys still need to stay here for one more day." Du Gui's expression was solemn, "Generally speaking, someone possessed by evil spirits would not be able to resist for more than 6 days but in order to be conservative, we have to wait for the seventh day before we can decide."
Qin Yun and Xiao Yue Mei were not worried either. If the more powerful Ghost Beast King was killed by them, the vile souls would definitely not be able to approach them, much less possess them.
After the seventh day, the trial finally came to an end. It made people sigh. Qin Yun and Xiao Yue Mei's team was actually so powerful as to obtain the final victory!
The team led by Wu Youchen from the Tian Xuan Martial School did not return for the seventh time.
"Could they be dead?" A student whispered.
"Extremely possible! If the party was not annihilated, at least one or two of them would have returned!"
When Guo Cheng heard everyone's guesses, his heart burned with anxiety. Among his students that were participating in the Tian Xuan Martial School, the only one still living was the Xiao Yue Mei that he hated the most!
"I'll head back to the Tian Xuan martial school first! Brother Yun, you must enter the Star Xuan Wu Academy. When the time comes, we will enter the Bone Refining Formation together!" Xiao Yue Mei said softly.
"I'm going back as well. I will pass by Tian Xuan Martial Arts Academy to send you off!" Du Gui laughed.
Qin Yun nodded and watched them leave.
Guo Cheng, on the other hand, intended to make a trip into the Cloud Dragon Mountain Range by himself. After all, the students in that team all came from famous sects.
