Qin Wushuang had used this method many times before to grasp the flaws of the enemy and seek an opportunity. This way, he was able to turn defeat into victory despite the disadvantage.
He had done it to Zhao Muzhi and to Senior Brother Wei Yi.
Especially during that battle with Wei Yi, under the extreme disproportionate battle circumstances, Qin Wushuang had still managed to find a glimmer of opportunity and grasp the situation in his hand.
Apparently, today’s battle situation was much more dangerous than the one he had fought with Wei Yi. Regardless of how Qin Wushuang worked, he could not find the most appropriate opportunity.
It was because the speed of that Wind Wolf was too fast. Since Qin Wushuang did not have an advantage in speed, an counterattack appeared undesirable.
Thus, Qin Wushuang currently did not want to use his sneak attack skills. With the fast speed of the Wind Wolf, Qin Wushuang did not want to reveal and waste his trump cards.
However, Qin Wushuang was not left without any options. He knew that the skin of the Wind Wolf could reduce the incoming Spiritual Qi of attacks. Yet, it could not confront the edge of the blade. This, once he launch a counterattack, he would use the Violet Sun Sword.
The Wind Wolf was also cunning. When Qin Wushuang used the Violet Sun Sword, he would evade. When Qin Wushuang used the snake-shaped soft whip, he would not dodge.
This way, the soft whip in Qin Wushuang’s had become as useless as a decoration.
However, Qin Wushuang did not plan to put away his soft whip. Vividly, he had already come up with a bold plan.
Once he had this idea, Qin Wushuang’s blood could not help but boil. If this plan could be implemented, it would be in defiance of nature.
"Perhaps, my breakthrough will depend on this War Wolf." This idea flashed across his mind and he smiled. Next, his footsteps remained uninterrupted as he jumped continuously.
He had withdrawn his offensive actions and stopped his counterattacks. Instead, he focused all his energy on dealing with the moves from this hungry wolf.
He must find the special attack traits from this vicious wolf and his way of using the Spiritual Qi. Usually, a spiritual beast generated its Spiritual Qi from their inner Core.
Normally, the inner Core of the spiritual beast was located in their chest. To all four legged beasts, this area was the most concealed and hard to attack.
Suddenly, the long grass from the grassland separated into halves. A burst of wind stormed over as that Wind Wolf dashed forward toward Qin Wushuang’s lower part of the body.
Qin Wushuang saw through his moves and slashed downwards with the Violet Sun Sword abruptly.
A gold light flew out from the slash attack, and a crack opened on the ground that extended towards the Wind Wolf that was rushing over. That Wind Wolf howled strangely and dug into the crack.
This Wind Wolf knew how to dig into the ground!
This movement was outside of Qin Wushuang’s expectation. He knew that this Wind Wolf had a lot of good trump cards, however, he hadn’t expected him to know so many techniques, let alone digging into the ground!
"Indeed, a Middle Stage Spiritual Beast is not ordinary." Qin Wushuang complemented inwardly and felt a trace of longing. He retreated backwards rapidly and jumped onto to a large tree. With the tip of his feet pointed lightly, he stepped onto a suspended branch. While swaying left and right, he observed the changes on the ground.
Although the Wind Wolf could dig into the ground, it could not conceal all of its presence from the surface. As long as there was the slightest movements of Spiritual Qi, it would not go undetected from Qin Wushuang’s senses.
Thus, Qin Wushuang did not fear this technique.
If this Wind Wolf had hidden in the underground to ambush him, most likely Qin Wushuang would have fear it. It would be tough to deal with
a hidden opponent as it might ambush you from the ground without your knowledge.
However, this Wind Wolf had gone underground under Qin Wushuang’s vision. Of course, he would not worry. This was the major difference between a War Beast and human beings. These beasts were arrogant and loved to show off their power.
After fighting with Qin Wushuang head on, this Wind Wolf had already determined that Qin Wushuang’s Spiritual stage was far less than its own. And he did not have much battle techniques. Thus, it wanted to use all types of cruel methods to kill this human, drain his Spiritual Qi and swallow his Spiritual beast.
These were all the ideas inside the Wind Wolf.
It thought that with it in the underground, it could catch Qin Wushuang off guard.
Qin Wushuang’s ear twitched as he heard a drilling noise coming from underground. Something was drilling up through the roots of this giant tree he was standing on.
The digging power of the Wind Wolf was extremely tyrannical as it kept going upwards. Its actions broke the tree and numerous splinters flew about.
Suddenly, a giant hole emerged from the branch. Like an electric drill, that Wind Wolf fixed his body like a sharp arrow as it lunged toward Qin Wushuang’s feet.
Qin Wushuang yelled and moved the snake shaped soft whip at a fast speed. He waved it into the air to produce three rings and flicked it around the body of the Wind Wolf.
After forming three circles, the whip wrapped around the body of the Wind Wolf. The frequency of his speed while waving the whip had almost caught up to the speed of the Wolf’s drilling.
While Qin Wushuang twisted, he also jumped with his feet. Suddenly, he tightened the arm and tensed the long whip around the body of the Wind Wolf.
That Wind Wolf was proud as apparently, any type of attack from the snake shaped whip would not work. Even if the body was bound, it did not fear.
Even if Qin Wushuang planned to use the soft whip to drag it, it had the confidence that it would not lose to this human being that was only at the Initial Stage regarding power.
Thus, with a flash of the silver light, all the hairs on its body stood up again. It opened up its bloody mouth widely, gave a long growl as that silver light became even more bright. It had planned to use its power to break through Qin Wushuang’s soft whip.
At this moment, a trace of a smile flickered onto the corner of Qin Wushuang’s mouth.
Indeed, this Wind Wolf was powerful. However, Qin Wushuang was feeling quite happy at the moment. Through layers of bait, he had finally reduced the vigilance of this Wind Wolf to the minimum. He had increased his pride and arrogance to the maximum.
Currently, the Wind Wolf felt that it would not require much power to break through a long whip at the Initial Stage. It didn’t know that its thought was about to push it into the deep abyss. Currently, it had already become Qin Wushuang’s prey and a sheep being led to slaughter!
Qin Wushuang laughed and both thumbs from his hands resisted against the handle of the snake-shaped whip. Next, he initiated the and sent it through the whip.
Initially, Qin Wushuang’s three layers of binding had been deliberately placed. He had wrapped it around area of the Wind Wolf’s body nearest to the Inner Core. Once he began the , that Wind Wolf only felt its Spiritual Qi it had been channelling into its fur disappear. The Spiritual Qi it had initiated seemed to be like a stone that was dropped into a deep ocean.
Initially, the wolf didn’t care and continued to urge its Spiritual Qi. When the tyrannical Spiritual Qi rushed out of its body, some strange power absorbed it as soon as it had arrived to the surface.
That Wind Wolf could not believe this fact and it repeated its actions another three times. Finally, it realized that something was wrong. It gave two long growls to the sky and started to struggling as it wanted to force Qin Wushuang to let go.
Like a magnet stuck above the metal, how could Qin Wushuang let go so easily? Regardless of how much this Wind Wolf jumped around, he followed its movements and jumped along with it. He did not allow it to escape.
Currently, the Wind Wolf only felt two unreasonable power streams rushing into his Inner Core and absorbing his Spiritual Qi reserve via tyrannical means.
These two powers streams were like leeches draining it to the bone, it would not escape no matter how it struggled.
In the beginning, the struggle from this beast made Qin Wushuang feel a powerful rocking force that was difficult to contend with. After a moment, the struggles of the wolf had weakened noticeably.
It was similar to two strong warriors arm wrestling. In the beginning when both sides had an equal power, they would be in a stalemate. When the power of one side gradually absorbed the power of the other side, the situation would fall to one side.
The expression of this Wind Wolf changed from shock to fear, and to desperation. In the end, it lost all power to resist and was locked down by Qin Wushuang who had absorbed its Inner Core completely.
When a War Beast had their inner Core absorbed until it was empty, they were like tigers without claws and incapable of acting vicious. It lay on its stomach and remained unmoving.
Qin Wushuang knew that for this type of War Beast, if he did not destroy the Core, within time, it would recover even if he had absorbed everything.
Thus, he did not hold back. After he had finished absorbing the Wind Wolf’s Qi, he waved the Violet Sun Sword and slashed down on the head of this Wind Wolf.
The entire body of this Wind Wolf was a treasure. Qin Wushuang cleaned the blood and threw the corpse into the storage knapsack. The teeth and the claws of this Wind Wolf were extremely sharp and comparable to a Middle Stage weapon. How could Qin Wushuang waste it? And the skin of this Wind Wolf was even more marvelous as it could resist against the attack of Spiritual Qi. Naturally, with the quality of these goods, Qin Wushuang would take it.
This battle had lasted for almost an entire day. Qin Wushuang looked at the mess and knew that it was impossible to get rid all the battle remains.
At the moment, he did not waste time and meditated for a moment as he absorbed and merged the Spiritual Qi from the Wind Wolf into his body.
After a moment, Qin Wushuang suddenly remembered something. He hid his Upper Sky presence and left the scene quietly.
After this battle, Qin Wushuang was now touching the border of breaking through. He already felt that the Upper Sky Middle Stage was knocking on the door.
Thus, he must find a suitable environment to completely merge the Spiritual Qi he had absorbed from the Wind Wolf. Once he had digested the Spiritual Qi, Qin Wushuang knew that he would have opened the door to the Middle Stage!
The Middle Stage of the Spiritual Martial Force was a stage that many Upper Sky elite warriors had dreamed of and was unable to arrive at. And currently, it was knocking on Qin Wushuang’s door.
Everything seemed to be a dream. The fact was, many elite Upper Sky martial artists could not break through from the Initial Stage to the Middle Stage in their entire lifetime. From beginning to the end, Qin Wushuang had only used less than a year’s worth of time!
If this news were to spread, it would make many Upper Sky Initial Stage warriors sigh in lamentation.
