Regarding its speed, of course, a Spiritual Beast would be much faster than a human Upper Sky Realm in short bursts. However, in regards to long distance endurance ability, a human Upper Sky warrior would have much greater advantage.
Between the Upper Sky users, it would not matter if one could shake off pursuers in a short distance. It was because that Upper Sky users no longer relied on eye sights to catch another one. They could judge the escape routes through feeling the Upper Sky presence. It was equivalent and reliable as using the eyes.
In other words, regardless of how much you tried to shake off pursuers, you could not completely get rid of the other party if they could feel your leftover Upper Sky presence.
Immediately, this Spiritual Beast dashed toward the higher altitude after receiving enough room and from shaking off Qin Wushuang’s defense. Its strategy was apparent. It wanted to use the altitude to shake off Qin Wushuang and those chasers.
To human elite warriors, unless you had reached an unimaginable level, you would never be able to fly.
After chasing for a while, Qin Wushuang could only rely on utilizing the Upper Sky Qi to follow it.
He would have no choice if this Spiritual Beast decided to fly to a higher altitude. However, once it dropped, it would not be able to shake off his pursuit.
"This evil creature is quite cunning. Before while I was blocking it, because of the close distance, it did not dare to dash towards the sky in fear of leaving any openings in the back for me to attack. Now, after shaking me off, and with enough room, it flew to the sky! It seems that the intelligence of the Spiritual Beast is no less than human beings."
Qin Wushuang felt somewhat regretful. He had let it pass through because he did not wanted to confront this beast and allow those chasers to get the rewards for doing nothing.
However, his action created too much space and allowed this Spiritual Beast fly to a higher altitude freely.
If it did not drop its altitude, then he could not do anything to it.
He must admit that he had miscalculated. He still lacked experience while facing this beast for the first time. If he had some bow-like Upper Sky weapon, for sure he could shoot down this beast. Unfortunately, he only had a blade from Li Wuji and was incapable of conducting any long-range attack.
Unexpectedly, after shaking off the chasers, that Spiritual Beast seemed to deliberately provoke him as it flew close to him from time to time. Then, it would fly to the sky.
Just like this, a night passed and Qin Wushuang had travelled over a thousand miles away from when he’d first encountered the Spiritual Beast.
At the same time, Qin Wushuang also became enraged as he thought inwardly: "Most likely, this creature had other evil intentions for provoking me. Could there be some other traps waiting for me? Or else, why would it fly down to inflame me after escaping the danger zone?"
When he thought here, he suppressed the anger in his heart and became calm.
He must never allow it have the upperhand. Or else, the winner and loser in this battle of endurance would remain undetermined. It would become a true disaster if he was lured into the nest of the Spiritual Beasts.
Qin Wushuang decided to loosen the reins in order to grasp it better. With this idea, he slowed down. Then, his entire appearance also appeared exhausted.
To show weakness to his enemy.
It was Qin Wushuang’s first step in his strategy. To use the strategy of loosening the rein and grasp it better, he must confuse the other party. Apparently, it would not be easy to confuse this intelligent beast. Thus, he must not overly exaggerate his actions.
After a night of being on the move, it was normal to show some fatigue.
Qin Wushuang stopped after another moment of chasing. He stopped before a lush forest, jumped onto a big tree and lay down on the branch to rest.
His current actions could easily show people that he was in shortage of Spiritual Qi.
After all, only Advanced students trained at the main Virtuous Heaven Mountain Range. They were not the Core students. Even though they had entered the Upper Sky Realm, it was normal to not having enough Spiritual Qi foundation.
Recuperating, Qin Wushuang felt at ease and almost forgot about that Spiritual Beast. Feeling leisurely, he actually started to train.
Indeed, after a few hours, that Spiritual Qi circled back and whistled a few times above Qin Wushuang. However, it was not willing to come down. Apparently, it was using its cries to test Qin Wushuang’s reactions.
Now, Qin Wushuang was almost certain that this beast wanted something. Perhaps, it was "fishing." When he thought here, he became even more cool and collected.
It would be good to destroy this Spiritual Beast. Yet, he would not act recklessly if he did not see any opportunities.
After a night of running, he had shaken off those chasers long ago. Now, it was between him and this Spiritual Beast to battle it out.
He wanted to kill this beast, and apparently, this beast was also luring him. Both sides had reached a stalemate. Qin Wushuang did not make any move. Regardless of how much that beast yelled, he did not move or look at it at all.
Instead, the Spiritual Beast could not tolerate his cool self-restraint. It opened its claw and directly shot out a few sharp slicing wind attacks. Like a bolt from the blue, the blades carried quick winds and shot toward him as it sliced open the sky. Qin Wushuang’s figure flashed and he jumped down from the tree.
He was not afraid of the attack. Instead, he was worried that it would not attack.
To make a move, he could completely use the to contend with this beast. He could pretend that he was weak and use the previously devised strategy to kill it.
Earlier he had almost succeeded. If it weren’t for those people closing on him, then Qin Wushuang would have had a good chance to lure this beast closer.
Once the distance became closer, the beast would enter the attack range for the . Then, Qin Wushuang would attack from both sides using killing blows. Surely, he would kill this beast.
When that beast saw Qin Wushuang flip down the tree, it still dashed down after a moment’s hesitation. It moved its claws continuously and shot out blades like a whirlwind.
Its’ pair of claws were, in fact, more powerful than any weapons. Each line of attack sliced the rows of trees and made them fall in groups.
Qin Wushuang only evaded and never counterattacked. To others, he appeared to be in an extremely embarrassing and difficult situation.
He refused to believe that despite this Spiritual Beast being sensitive and alert, could it withhold itself and not attack at a closer distance?
Indeed, after Qin Wushuang had kept showing his weak and embarrassing appearance, this Spiritual Beast more or less had become arrogant and proud.
The more closer it moved to attack.
Suddenly, Qin Wushuang threw his arms and waves of power shot out from the centre of his palm.
Thunder palm attack!
It was some beginner attack in which Qin Wushuang had learned from Li Wuji’s technique book. Of course, he did not intend to use it to attack the beast at this time.
Instead, he intended to further reduce the wariness of the other party.
Although this Thunder Palm attack appeared powerful, he only used fifty percent of its power. Of course, it would not be a problem to attack normal flying beasts and not enough to take down this one.
After shooting out a few Thunder Palm attacks, that Spiritual Beast became overjoyed. It flipped its wings from left and right to directly sweep away the remaining power.
Suddenly, it gave a long whistle and flipped its wings. In a flash, lightening and flint scattered.
Like waves of sharp arrows, hundreds of feathers pierced towards Qin Wushuang quickly. This wave of attack, speed and its sharpness had come at him unpredictably!
When Qin Wushuang saw the ferocious wave of feathers, he knew it must be some powerful assault. Instantly, he swayed from left and right through the to evade this wave of attack.
"Indeed, the wings of this evil creature hides many secrets. Most likely this feather attack only served as a probe. For sure, much powerful moves are hidden in there."
While Qin Wushuang thought, he rushed from left and right in a neither fast nor slow speed. He was still using his tactic to confuse the enemy.
Surely, that Spiritual Beast dashed down another dozen of meters. Now, it was only twenty metres away from the head of Qin Wushuang. In fact, it had already entered his attack zone.
However, to ensure the degree of strength and accuracy, Qin Wushuang decided to wait a bit longer. If he were to attack, he must attack on the spot before using any of his trump cards.
Once the first attack had failed and this beast became alarmed and fearful, it would be impossible to get him to come down again. Usually, Spiritual Beasts all remained highly alert.
In other words, he would only have the choices of either succeeding or to giving up!
Apparently, that Spiritual Beast also dropped its guard gradually when it saw Qin Wushuang did not shoot out any more attacks. It thought that was all of his strength!
Suddenly, it flapped open both of its wings rapidly, then closed it again. It did this movement six times in repetition.
Each time, both wings brought out a turbulence like the surging wave. These waves of turbulence accumulated and concentrated in a core area to tightly wrap the surrounding air.
This ball of air induced powerful vacuum power and wrapped the surrounding leaves and sands. Taking on an eerie shape, this ball of air formed a whirlpool centre.
Suddenly, that Spiritual Beast threw its wings outward and pushed out that giant whirlpool. Instantly, like an exploding bomb, the terrifying space rippled in the air and spread powerful waves to the surrounding!
It was as if waves of strange ripples emerged in the air, spreading out.
Qin Wushuang kept stepping backwards and bumped into a dozen big trees. Still, he showed no signs of stopping. Watching Qin Wushuang retreating rapidly, unwilling to give up, that Spiritual Beast immediately followed. It continued to urge the power from its entire body to push forward that strong whirlpool of air.
Swaying from left and right, like a piece of leaf on the tip of a tide, Qin Wushuang used the as if he could not control himself.
Suddenly, as if equipped with a spring, Qin Wushuang’s body escaped the controlling zone of that whirlpool and flashed to the back.
The chance had come!
He used both of his hands, his left, the Young Shang Swords and his right, the Middle Rushing Sword to shoot out continuously!
Like the jumping rabbit and dropping of a falcon, the speed of the changes from these two moves could not be described by words. It was as if a drowning person near death had suddenly jumped up full of vigor and split open the waves!
Instantly, the situation changed.
Obviously, that Spiritual Beast had never expected Qin Wushuang could escape the vacuum power of that whirlpool. Moreover, it had never dreamed the power from the could be so tyrannical.
Attacks from the left and right had hit the target on the spot. The Young Shang Sword had hit the left wing while the Middle Rushing had hit the right wing. Instantly, both wings of this beast were wounded. Letting out a mournful cry, it wanted to escape.
Only, how could it still escape with both of its wings hit by an Upper Sky warrior? Before it had the chance to escape to the sky, Qin Wushuang had moved its fingers continuously and hit all the fatal points. Helplessly, it fell from the middle of the sky and stopped on the ground.
