With the Violet Sun Sword in hand, Qin Wushuang did not suppress his Upper Sky Spiritual pressure at all. He instructed the others: "You eight will divide into two groups. Each group of four people will stay at the sides. Just make sure to stop him if he tries to cover his head and to sneak away like a rat."
Then, he gave a look to Wei Yi: "Senior Brother Wei Yi, please assist me. Act according to situation."
As soon as Wei Yi heard Qin Wushuang’s instructions, he knew his ambition was to kill this person directly!
He nodded without hesitation: "Alright, I will assist you! This person is the criminal that caused the devastating massacre of the Purple Cloud town. Today, regardless, we must kill him!"
"He is the one?" Instantly, flames of anger shot out from Qin Wushuang’s eyes, "Then I will not withdraw unless I cut off his head!"
That man in grey robes laughed: "Ignorant little kids, I want to see how much strength you’ve got to dare to bluff like this."
It was no wonder that this man in grey robes dared to act boldly due to his skills. He showed no fear despite being surrounded. He gave Wei Yi a cold look: "Little kid, you killed my contract beast and are my number one target. I will kill you first and deal with the other unruly fishes later!"
After he had finished speaking, he shook his spear and was about to attack Wei Yi again.
Immediately, Qin Wushuang understood the how Wei Yi had taken the initiative to shoulder the responsibility of killing the Wind Wolf.
He laughed coldly: "You really have no eyes. The person who killed that wild wolf was me. Why do you blame Senior Brother Wei?"
A sharp and piercing light flashed across the eyes of the man in grey robes as he fixed his gaze murderously on Qin Wushuang’s face. Apparently, he was trying to determine whether he had spoken the truth. Qin Wushuang appeared joyous yet inwardly, he was fully alert.
He knew that since this man in grey robes had the skills to push Senior Brother Wei Yi to the state of not being able to counterattack, his Spiritual stage was above his and Wei Yi’s.
However, Qin Wushuang and Wei Yi were different. He excelled in counterattack through a defensive fighting style and was much more balanced than Wei Yi. Thus, with him attacking the enemy from the front and letting Wei Yi launch a surprise attack from the outside with his use of the sharp attack from the , it would pose a greater threat to this man in grey robes .
"Is it true that you have killed Little Wind?" Than man in grey robe asked in a low voice.
"Not only have I killed him, I also separated its corpse, and took the Inner Core and the skin. For such a mad and sick vicious beast, it’s too lenient to just kill him in one sword move. How could I repay those innocent souls from the Purple Cloud town?"
Traces of a dense purple cloud emerged on the face of the man in grey robe. Apparently, his anger had reached its limit.
Instantly, he twitched his lips and a trace of strange smile emerged as he growled: "If that’s the case, then die for Little Wind!"
As soon as his words left his mouth, he stabbed forward with the long spear with an explosive force!
In the void sky, a dragon-like purple spear light emerged viciously and emitted a trail of explosive booms.
"Good!" Qin Wushuang smiled lightly. Suddenly, like the willow branch, his body leisurely moved like a pendulum and evaded to the left, followed by a slash from the Violet Sun Sword.
Like a ball of blazing fire, the red sword Qi gathered to form a wave of Sword light uniformly to cut across the waist of that man in grey robe.
For this sword attack, Qin Wushuang used the travelling path of the classic blood vessel and brought out the fire attribute. The power of this sword was completely different than when he was at the Initial Stage.
On the surface, this sword move appeared casual, but was extremely vicious that targeted the fatal points of that man in grey robe.
Although the man in grey robe had sent out a spear attack with the imposing awe of a rainbow, he discovered that his power seemed to have hit the light wind. The other party only twisted his body and dodged. He had never seen such creepy body movements in his life.
For the sword attack from the other party, regarding the attack power, it was less than his spear. However, Qin Wushuang was able to catch him unprepared. This way, the difference between power seemed subtle.
As soon as the man in grey robed had begun his fight with this person, he was able to see that this person before him was much more troublesome than the previous one.
When Wei Yi watched Qin Wushuang’s defense, he also felt somewhat ashamed inwardly: "Junior Brother Qin’s defense is indeed, extraordinary. Especially his body movements. It seems to show no unique traits, but that dancing movement appears casual and forced the enemy’s attack to hit air. This is equivalent to a fist hitting the cotton. The attacker appears to not lose anything, but as time goes by, he cannot help but feel irritated…"
When he thought here, Wei Yi remembered his fight with Qin Wushuang and felt even more embarrassed. Inwardly, he sighed as he finally understood, he had been defeated not because Qin Wushuang had used his weakness in personality, Qin Wushuang did have exceptional skills that was much better than his.
Just from his defensive ability, indeed, even he, a Middle Stage warrior who had been at that stage for two or three years could not help but feel impressed.
The man in grey robes had no choice but to evade this sword. With his spear attack from earlier, there was not enough time to take it back. Moreover, it was impossible to defend with his body.
Then, the remaining option was to evade.
Only this way, unconsciously, Qin Wushuang had gotten ahold of the battlefield. Different than those disciples of the Stargaze Palace, the man in grey robe had never seen Qin Wushuang making a move before. He lacked essential knowledge of Qin Wushuang’s battle skills.
He had no idea that Qin Wushuang was an elite warrior that excelled in controlling the battle tempo. The ability to control the tempo was not just Qin Wushuang’s having an unpredictable rhythm, but he also excelled in breaking the enemy’s tempo.
Regardless of Zhao Muzhi, or Wei Yi, they had all suffered from this aspect of Qin Wushuang’s. Thus, when they saw situation happening against the man in grey robes, they all felt incredibly gleeful.
Following this trend, even if this person did not suffer a loss, he would not win against Qin Wushuang.
After dodging an attack, this man in grey robe shot out his long spear again. This time, his entire arm seemed like the wind as he sent out fifteen or sixteen spear attacks continuously.
These spear moves were done in an instant.
It caused a change of wind and kicked up dust from the ground.
For a time, dust was flying around this man in grey robe. The storm of dust caused by the spear pressure had formed a tornado like temperament and shot toward Qin Wushuang.
Still, remaining calm and at ease, Qin Wushuang’s figure seemed like a lonely boat in that raging wave. He seemed to be in a dangerous situation, but still raised his head and floated.
The figure of the man in grey robe glowed as he multiplied into two, four, and eight…
Wei Yi did not want to think about it. He cleared the thoughts in his head and became focused as he prepared for the next wave of Spiritual Qi.
The moment when he reached the peak, he would launch the first move from the without hesitation!
Reputation, destruction of honor, pride…
Before a strong foe, everything was like floating clouds. Before this killing devil, Wei Yi would not waste his energy on those boring things. He only knew that if this person did not die, the ten great disciples of the Stargaze Palace would face immense danger!
If this person did not die, those few tens and thousands of innocent souls of the Purple Cloud would not rest in peace.
It was unnecessary to decorate it with any grand motives or needed any motivation to push them. Currently, Wei Yi had the same exact idea as Qin Wushuang, and that was—To kill him!
Even if they were to fight with greater numbers, he would do it.
Currently, Qin Wushuang was experiencing his toughest battle. And the first battle since he had become a Middle Stage warrior.
Indeed, the power of this person was above Senior Brother Wei Yi’s. However, who was Qin Wushuang? Regardless of the tyrannical actions from the enemy, his body was like a slippery fish as he could always find a gap and the only path of survival among the tens and thousands which led to danger.
The enemy also kept changing and leaving behind a trail of shadows. The long spear also attacked like a spitting poisonous snake.
For a time, as if spitting the head and covering the face, this attack power resembled a hailstone and did not leave any gaps.
When facing such attack power, even Wei Yi who was proud of his offensive power, he could not help but feel overwhelmed with shock. Inwardly, he was worried for Qin Wushuang and could not help but think: "If that man in grey robe had attacked this way in the beginning, how long would I last?"
The more powerful the man in grey robes wielded the spear, the more tornado like temperament it carried. He had sent the dusts and stones flying to cover the sky.
Amongst the grey and darkness, Qin Wushuang waved his Violet Sun Sword again.
The miserable metal sound combined with the fire attribute he had and slashed a wave of fiery light in the sky. Carrying a tremendous piercing power, it penetrated that wave of darkness towards the forehead of that man in grey robe.
At this moment, Wei Yi who was on the outside also saw the gap. He initiated the temperament of his entire body abruptly and raised the Cicada blade highly above him. The emergence of the radiant light turned his entire body into a golden light. Without doubt, the person and the blade had merged as he moved to slash the waist of that man in grey robes.
An attack from left and right!
After accumulating his Qi for this long, finally, they had grasped an opportunity to attack from left and right. This was an attack of mutual understanding! Qin Wushuang slashed with his sword continuously, he shot out three sword attacks toward the grey robed man’s fatal body parts…
Indeed, the man in grey robe was powerful. When faced against such killer moves and the attack from both sides from two Middle Stage warriors, he suddenly stopped his figure and twisted at a high speed on the spot. His body had merged with the long spear and started to spin like a gyroscope.
This spinning possessed a tremendous piercing power.
On the ground, the earth kept flying up. The body of the man in grey robe was like a drilling tool and drilled downwards.
Instantly, he had completely drilled into the ground.
Qin Wushuang waved his sword continuously and attacked. However, that man in grey robe did not slow down his speed as he kept drilling deeper. In a moment, he went to the centre of the earth. Even at a few metres away and with Qin Wushuang’s strong detection power, he could not sense any traces of Spiritual Qi from the man in grey robe.
Qin Wushuang immediately had a bad feeling as he shouted: "Retreat!"
Then he said: "Senior Brother Wei, let’s defend and allow them to retreat first!"
The other eight people were confused. However, naturally, they were confused when that man in grey robes had suddenly disappeared.
"Don’t hesitate, retreat, jump to the nearest and the tallest tree!" Qin Wushuang called as he continued to look around for any traces of movements.
