Just as those two was about to walk out, that man in gold robe suddenly shouted: "Hold on!"
Those two Elders stopped and Elder Du, the one with the triangle-shaped eyes asked: "Elder Lü, any other problems?"
In between the brows of Elder Lü in gold robes, he seemed to have some questions. He sized Qin Wushuang up from head to toe and felt that something was wrong.
Initially, he was only focused on the natural pit and did not put this ordinary sentry in his mind. As a result, he did not feel suspicious. Additionally, Qin Wushuang’s performance had also caused him to lower his guard. However, after calming down and thinking about it, he felt that something was wrong.
Regarding the problems, he could not explain why and only felt this matter was strange.
"Which battalion do you belong to?" The gold-robed man asked lightly. He glared at Qin Wushuang with his sharp eyes.
"Eh…I…I am from the Second Battalion of the Forward Sentries." Qin Wushuang remembered that the person he had killed had an jaded identity plate that wrote Second Battalion of the Forward Sentries.
"Captain Liu of the Second battalion is my student’s disciple, tell me, what characteristic does he have?" When the gold-robed man asked this question, the other people all felt something was amiss. They looked at the gold-robed man with questions and looked at Qin Wushuang.
Inwardly, Qin Wushuang knew he was in danger. He did not know how this old man did not get suspicious before, but had somehow developed doubts at this critical moment? If he could walk out of this cave, he only needed to give three sharp whistles and allow Wei Yi and the others to retreat. Then, he could escape easily. Even with ten Middle Stage warriors, if he did not get surrounded, Qin Wushuang had the confidence to escape.
However, after becoming surrounded in this narrow cave, it was tough to escape.
Although Qin Wushuang appeared submissive, he was observing everyone’s expression from the corner of his eyes. Especially when the gold-robed man asked this question, it locked him into a difficult situation.
As for whether the captain of the Second Battalion was named Liu, he had no clue. He felt that this gold-robed man was bluffing. In fact, Captain Liu might not even have existed.
However, if he did exist and he gave the wrong answer, he would be exposed immediately.
In the case if that captain did not exist, and if he were to give random description, wouldn’t he be exposed too?
Indeed, he was caught between the devil and the deep blue sea. Qin Wushuang made up his mind inwardly as he knew this matter could not be delayed any further. The longer he delayed his answer, the more dangerous it would become. Instantly, he decided to take the risk: "In my Second Battalion, there is no Captain Liu."
After he spoke these words, Qin Wushuang quickly scanned the terrain and got ready for battle. As long as he could retreat to the path close to the entrance, he had the confidence he could escape. Even these four Middle Stage warriors would not be able to stop him.
However, that gold-robed was extremely cunning. When he glanced at those two Middle Stage Elders, those two understood his intention and rushed to the entrance and blocked all the escape routes.
Inwardly, Qin Wushuang was calling out oh no.
That man in gold-robe smiled evilly: "Since Captain Liu does not exist, then tell me, what is the name of the Captain of Second Battalion?"
The color on Qin Wushuang’s face changed slightly. He knew that today’s battle was unavoidable. He flicked his sleeve and brought out the snake-shaped soft whip and sent out a strong Spiritual ring to the surrounding.
The emergence of this ring of spiritual wave caused the surrounding cave wall to tremble as the stone walls crumbled. That gold-robed man shouted: "Block the entrance, don’t let him escape!"
While he spoke the words, he shook both arms and consolidated a defensive shield made of vital energy that blocked half of Qin Wushuang’s spiritual wave.
Those two Elders that had blocked the entrance also took out their weapon.
Qin Wushuang shouted, with one hand holding the Violet Sun Sword and the other with the snake-shaped soft whip, he attacked those two Elders that blocked the entrance like heavenly guardians.
Qin Wushuang understood very well that he did not have many chances. He must break through the entrance instantly. Or else, he would most likely suffer greatly in today’s battle.
Life and death was only an inch away.
With this resolution, naturally, Qi Wushuang fought with all he had. Carrying an unstoppable momentum, he attacked those two as if his life depended on it, which it did.
Naturally, such attack had a great effect. Although those two Elders had lived for more than hundreds of years, they did not dare to lower their guard when they saw his attack. These two combined their power and sent a surging spiritual wave to block Qin Wushuang’s attack outside their defensive circle. At the same time, both of them attacked Qin Wushuang from left and right with their weapons.
If it was a one-on-one fight, although Qin Wushuang would still have the power to deal with them despite his strength being lesser than that Elder Lü’s. Only, it was four Middle Stage warriors that had surrounded him. This situation was not in his favor at all. Since Qin Wushuang was unable to break through in his first attempt, he also felt extremely anxious inwardly as he stepped on the stone wall and rushed toward the fences on his sides. When the attacks reached him, Qin Wushuang’s body had already jumped to the fence on the other side like a swallow.
That gold-robed man smiled evilly: "Elder Du, Zhang, you two just block the entrance. Since this kid has decided to wander in here, he will not get out!"
When the gold-robed man finished speaking, in a flash, a long and sparkling stick as wide as the distance between one’s brows appeared in his hand. As he used it to slashed downwards, it emitted a piercing metallic sound.
Ringing out with an uninterrupted resonance, it smashed towards the place that Qin Wushuang had stood moments ago.
This power of this strike appeared extremely shocking.
This piercing metallic sound was indeed, a high-level metallic spiritual attack. When this attack arrived at its target, it had sliced the fences into pieces. The remnants of the power shot toward the stone wall and emitted sharp impact where sparks flew. The entire cave trembled as if an earthquake had hit.
Indeed, Qin Wushuang was trapped in a situation in which he had no way to go up, and no way to go down.
In this cave, besides that natural pit, all other places were extremely narrow except that high platform where the enemies were standing. Besides that platform and the fences, there were only narrow paths that allowed only one person to fit, but not to unleash techniques or body movements.
Thus, Qin Wushuang was facing an extremely dangerous situation in which he could not even move an inch.
The attack of this Elder Lü was extremely tyrannical. Each stick attack shocked the entire space with the spiritual Qi spreading around.
Qin Wushuang performed his technique as he evaded his attack.
However, despite his fast speed in absorbing the attack, he was not as fast as the attack speed from Elder Lü. Apparently, this Elder Lü had used the advantage from this narrow space to unleash his attack moves.
He planned to block all Qin Wushuang’s escape routes in this narrow space.
Qin Wushuang’s heart was rent with anxiety. Under such situation, it completely nullified his advantage in body movements. Despite his strength in the , he had no space to perform it. Naturally, he was confined.
Apparently, another Middle Stage warrior besides Elder Lü had grasped the situation and joined the battle as he waved his sword. He aided Elder Lü in attacking from left and right.
Qin Wushuang moaned. Earlier, both him and Wei Yi had attacked that grey-robed man from left and right. Yet, in turn, he was being attacked from both sides by the enemies. Could this be karma?
Despite Qin Wushuang’s power, he was in a dire circumstance while facing such attacks. He had no choice but to scramble all over the place and had no spare hands to counterattack.
That gold-robed man shouted: "Let’s kill this person with all our strength. Then, we will go look for Elder Chen!"
Qin Wushuang waved the Violet Sun Sword madly and shot attack moves toward the stone walls. He evaded each attack and tried to pull some people with him to death in between the gaps.
Only, under the encirclement of four Middle Stage warriors, it was impossible for him to execute this idea.
Now, he had been forced into the opposite corner across the cave. He was like a beast trapped with its back against the wall . Elder Lü gave a growl while at the same time, he rushed forward and smashed with his stick.
Instantly, Qin Wushuang lowered his body to evade the piercing attack that emitted waves of rolling golden light.
Boom, the Spiritual Qi clashed with the stone wall and sent countless stone crumbs raining down on Qin Wushuang’s face. Just as he was about to borrow the power from the stone wall, suddenly, a cold wind breezed under his feet as a sword moved to slash horizontally at him and blocked all his paths. Qin Wushuang straightened his body like a tightened bow and shot to the middle…
However, someone was also waiting for him in the middle area.
Qin Wushuang raised his Violet Sun Sword and blocked the power from this incoming sword attack. Yet, another mace moved to attack his waist.
The four Middle Stage warriors had combined their attack into one rhythm.
Unable to avoid, Qin Wushuang twisted his body to endure this fatal attack.
The mace hit Qin Wushuang’s back with full power. He only felt a fishy smell from his throat as he spat out a mouthful of blood.
His body fell down from the sky. What awaited him was the bottomless abyss of the natural pit!
Despite his serious injuries, Qin Wushuang did not panic. He waved his long whip and wrapped it around the fence as he was tried to use this anchor to slingshot himself out of the entrance.
Only, his scheme was soon discovered by gold-robed Elder Lü as he smashed down with his stick.
The fence collapsed under the long stick. Qin Wushuang’s had lost the only thing tethering him as he fell headfirst. Feeling desperate, Qin Wushuang accumulated his inner energy and let out three rushed whistles.
Three sharp whistles rang through the air for a long time. Qin Wushuang’s body continued to fall deeper into the deep abyss. He closed his eyes that was full of sadness.
Is this the end?
In Qin Wushuang’s head, different images started to flash, his father, sister, brother-in-law… Even his fellow disciples, Senior Brothers…
Each of the faces appeared familiar and friendly. Yet, now, he seemed to be bidding goodbye to them…
"Could it be in this lifetime, in the end, I am only a bystander?" Pain pierced Qin Wushuang’s heart, "Senior Brother Wei Yi and the others should not rush over after hearing my three whistles, right?"
About ten miles outside the mountain, suddenly, the color on Wei Yi’s face changed. Qin Wushuang’s three short whistles sounded somewhat suppressed as if something had blocked this sound. However, it still sounded clear and piercing in which he could not help but feel a coldness emerging in his heart.
"Could Junior Brother have encountered a deadly enemy?" How could Wei Yi not hear that Qin Wushuang’s three whistles sounded more like a farewell, as if it was filled with sadness, a warning…
Even Lu Shaonan and Huang Chaoyang’s expression changed. They asked anxiously: "Senior Brother, isn’t that the signal of Junior Brother Qin? Three short whistles, is he warning us?"
