Indeed, this battle had come without a reason. Qin Wushuang did not even know the background of this Nine Palace Faction, and these guys made a move on him.
Since they had attacked him, Qin Wushuang knew that once Upper Sky elite warriors started to battle, it was impossible to not kill the others. It was a simple reason that if you don’t kill the enemy, they would kill you.
Apparently, that Senior Brother Wang had wanted to take his life when he made a fatal attack. If Qin Wushuang held back, he would not be responsible for himself.
Thus, naturally he would not show mercy when he attacked. Once he made a move, he used his body movements to his advantage and killed one person. He could clearly see that although that short guy shouted the loudest and the most viciously, he was the weakest. With Qin Wushuang’s sudden turn at lightning speed, plus his advantage over the stages, he succeeded in killing him instantly.
Qin Wushuang was also overjoyed when he saw that his first attack had worked. He knew that it was an advantage to reduce the numbers by killing this person. Most importantly, this attack would serve to intimidate the others.
From the reaction of Senior Brother Wang, he knew that his attack previously had worked as an intimidation. Or else, that Senior Brother Wang would not have panic and summoned his comrades.
Qin Wushuang said coldly: "Nine Palace Faction, right? I will remember you guys. Those who make a move on me first only have one path, that is—The road to Hell!"
After he had finished, Qin Wushuang did not linger and rushed forward at a rapid speed. Since he had broken through the defense of these people, naturally, he would not retreat. He must escape the encirclement of these three groups. After he ran for a few steps, suddenly, he felt somewhat inappropriate.
His white sable had been exposed by this person. If he left now, wouldn’t it be inappropriate if he investigated him? When he thought here, he slowed down his pace.
At this moment, that Senior Brother Wang had arrived to kill. He waved the Tiger Iron Mace again and sent rings of Spiritual Qi towards him.
Although this Senior Brother Wang had good combat skills, he was not much better than Qin Wushuang. Qin Wushuang did not engage with him as he wanted to observe his battle style to control the tempo.
He never expected that Qin Wushuang would retreat three times continuously. Suddenly, Qin Wushuang saw a sharp light shoot towards him at a speed that could break the air. It was a sharp arrow!
The fast speed of this arrow held tremendous power like a meteor slashing through the sky.
Initially, Qin Wushuang thought this arrow was targeting him. Just when he was about to evade, he saw this arrow went straight to the back head of Senior Brother Wang!
Indeed, Qin Wushuang was extremely shocked.
The remaining Initial Stage warrior shouted: "Senior Brother Wang, evade, there is an arrow!"
Apparently, Senior Brother Wang also realized the aggressive attack from behind him. However, since he was on a momentum, he could not retreat now. He could only twist his body by force and jump to the side.
Naturally, this sweeping to the side reduced his attack momentum and instantly, he revealed his flaws before Qin Wushuang.
Without thinking, Qin Wushuang poked with one "Coagulated Sword".
The sword intention directly hit the chest of Senior Brother Wang. Although he had the protection from a defensive armour, this attack did not make him feel good. Instantly, he felt his blood surge. His body had become numb and exhibited extreme discomfort as if thousands of ants was biting his flesh.
With a loud roar, Senior Brother Wang turned around to escape. Only, with another "Whoosh" sound behind his back, another arrow shot precisely towards the back of his head. Indeed, it was working in mutual understanding with Qin Wushuang.
Regardless of how strong his moves were, burdened by injuries, Senior Brother Wang could not evade the power of this arrow.
He only saw a flash of the light that spread out.
In a loud sound, the entire head of Senior Brother Wang had shattered into a ground full of meat crumbs like a watermelon getting hammered. The shining white brains splashed on the ground.
Qin Wushuang immediately flashed and he avoided getting splashed by the dirty blood. He raised his head and saw a person from a distance that held a Celestial Bow in his hand. Although he had a pale face, both of his eyes were fully alert like a hawk.
Naturally, the remaining Initial Stage warrior turned pale with fright when he saw Senior Brother Wang had been instantly killed. He rushed to escape. Only, how could that person allow him?
He lifted up the bow to shoot an arrow.
The bow was opened like the full moon and the arrow shot out like a meteor.
This time, it was not as troublesome as killing Senior Brother Wang. He had finished this person in one arrow. Three Upper Sky elite warriors had disappeared like the flowing water.
This change had happened extremely quickly. Even someone as powerful as Qin Wushuang felt surprised. That person approached Qin Wushuang in a few steps and cupped his hands toward him. There were no color on his pale face as he smiled widely and pulled together the three bodies.
Then, a little cup appeared in his hand. He poured a few drops of the liquid on the bodies that caused it to exude a piercing smell. He poked with his finger as a wave of fire sprout out toward the three bodies.
Instantly, the flame turned into blazing fire and consumed the three bodies completely. In a moment, with the smoke flying to the sky, the bodies turned into ashes.
Qin Wushuang observed this person carefully and saw that with his cold expression, he was born with an emotionless face. Plus with his internal injuries, it had added to his cold temperament even more.
When that person saw Qin Wushuang’s surprised face, he twitched his mouth again and revealed a trace of strange smile: "Thank you."
"For what?" Qin Wushuang asked without thinking.
That person did not explain: "We should not stay in this place. If you are interested, we can talk in another place. If you are not interested, we can part ways and you can continue on your journey. I won’t push this on to you."
This person was straightforward. Although he appeared somewhat arrogant, he did not linger and turned around to leave.
Qin Wushuang looked forward and knew that if he were to continue walking, he would encounter these people’s friends. It would not be nice.
Plus, he also had some doubts and he needed to verify with him.
Without hesitation, he followed this person and headed toward the deep canyon.
Soon, these two arrived at an underground karst cave after going deeper into the canyon. This karst cave had many turns and was extremely complicated.
That person smiled lightly when he saw that Qin Wushuang had followed him. Thus, he stopped at a somewhat open area.
He dug from a pile of dirt and took out a giant liquor bottle gourd. He threw it to Qin Wushuang: "You killed enemies for me, I treat you drinks."
Although Qin Wushuang saw this person had a cold expression, he did seem to be warm-hearted like a newborn baby from the corner of his eyes. Indeed, he should be warm at heart, but appear cold on the surface.
Instantly, he did not hold back and drank a few cups by holding the liquor gourd. When the alcohol entered his mouth, it was cold and refreshing. When it entered his stomach, it was as hot as the blazing fire.
Qin Wushuang knew immediately that this alcohol was not ordinary. Instantly, he used his Spiritual Qi from his internal sea of Spiritual Qi to suppress the alcohol. At this time, he discovered that this alcohol had turned into waves of rich Qi that flowed towards his internal sea.
This alcohol was a Spiritual drink!
Qin Wushuang revealed a face full of shock as he grabbed the gourd.
That person smiled lightly: "This is the Nine Refined Yin Yang Spiritual Wine that I looted from the Nine Palace Faction along the way. If it wasn’t for this, I wouldn’t have gotten chased for tens and thousands of miles, ha ha."
When he said here, this person coughed a few times. As soon as he opened his mouth, he coughed out a mouthful of dirty blood. Then, he breathed deeply and twitched his mouth into a smile: "Darn these little bastards, I killed four or five of them along the way, and they still tracked me here. Those three arrows had wasted much of my Spiritual Qi."
Qin Wushuang sighed: "You didn’t need to expose yourself at that time!"
That person showed a careless person: "Not expose myself? Letting them escape is not going to be good to you."
Inwardly, Qin Wushuang felt moved. He thought this person was something.
That person waved his hand: "Of course, don’t feel gratified. If you didn’t make a move, I wouldn’t have exposed myself. Thus, it’s not to help you, but to protect myself."
After he had finished, he explained again as if he was afraid that Qin Wushuang did not believe him: "Killing the existing enemies is also a way to protect myself. This Wang had been chasing me, and now, didn’t he die earlier than me? Ha ha ha!"
This laugh had aggravated his injuries. Another wave of aggressive cough choked him as he spat out a few mouthfuls of black blood.
With a sigh, Qin Wushuang took out a green colored pill. It was one of the three Nine Reversal Pills bestowed on him by Tan Zhongchi.
He threw it: "Take it, consuming it immediately will help your injuries."
That person did not hold back and put it into his mouth. Instantly, as he used the Spiritual Qi to digest the pill, the expression of this person changed when he sensed the extraordinary aspects of this pill. With some surprise on his face, he looked at Qin Wushuang with more astonishment.
This astonishment was not gratification, but purely feeling impressed by him.
In his lifetime, he never met many people being so generous on the first encounter. It was almost his first time meeting someone like this. Of course, the "Nine Refined Yin Yang Spiritual Wine" he had given Qin Wushuang to drink was also a rare item. It was no less than this Nine Reversal Pill. Only, he didn’t speak it out loud.
Indeed, this Nine Reversal Pill was effective. In fifteen minutes, the color on this person had turned from pale to red.
"Nice pill!" That person complimented and opened his eyes. There was a trace of a rare enthusiastic light in his eyes. It was a light of hope after he had restored his vitality, and expressed a form of joy that he had recovered and was becoming healthy again.
"Let me introduce myself, my name is Shang Ye, orphan, no sect, a wandering ghost. I came from the Red Dragon Empire…"
Red Dragon Empire? Inwardly, Qin Wushuang was shocked. He had not heard about the Nine Palace Faction from before, yet he had heard his teacher mention the Red Dragon Empire. It was one of the three Upper Stage Empires among the human world in the Tian Xuan Land!
Shang Ye did not feel surprised when he saw Qin Wushuang’s astonished expression. After all, the Red Dragon Empire was tens of thousands of miles away. They were tens of thousands of crags and torrents away. Logically, they should not have appear in this east area.
Among the major empires in the human world, there was an unspoken agreement between territories. One person of one area should not interfere with businesses in the other territories. If they did, it would be viewed as a form of invasion and an offense.
Qin Wushuang asked: "Is that Nine Palace Faction one of the sects in the Red Dragon Empire?"
A trace of hatred appeared in Shang Ye’s eyes as he said: "Humph, Nine Palace Faction! They are the number one sect in the Red Dragon, like the Archaic Mysteries Sect in the Heavenly Lake Empire!"
Inwardly, Qin Wushuang was shocked as it was what he had guessed! Red Dragon Empire, Nine Palace Faction…
