Instantly, the entire sky was filled with a storm of stern and harsh murderous intentions. These black lights seemed like those shafts of sharp murderous combat blades.
"It's astral wind!" Qin Wushuang called out, "Everyone be careful."
He activated the serene armour and the lights emerged from all around his body giving him a layer of protection.
Lone laughed: "Great timing! Let me see how powerful this astral wind is!"
Before he had finished speaking, that blade-like astral wind started to shoot at them one wave after another. Before it had reached them, the hot murderous intentions made their hair dance.
"On the ground!" When Qin Wushuang saw Lone and Bao Bao trying to be brave, he immediately shouted.
As he shouted, Qin Wushuang also jumped like a fish and pushed these two buffoons to the ground. Next to the ears, like the enchantment words from devils, the wind whistled past and wreaked havoc.
After the wind scraped by, it seemed to be like those destructions with absolutely no restraints.
Everything appeared to be in complete disorder as vegetation were uprooted and tossed and debris flung all around.
One did not know how long the wind continued to blow before it gradually calmed down. The whistling sound also started to soften.
Bao Bao and Lone still felt a lingering fear. If it were just one or two astral wind, they could have withstood it. However, like the deep and boundless sea, the astral wind kept sending wave after wave and did not give them the time to react.
"So dangerous." Bao Bao flicked his tongue and watched the scenery around him that appeared like the end of the world.
"Ha ha, Boss, are you alright?" Lone scratched his head and looked at Qin Wushuang with somewhat dreading eyes, like a kid who had made a mistake.
Qin Wushuang gave a bitter smile: "You two are too bold. Don't forget this is the Nine Refined Mysterious Wind Valley, it's not an ordinary place!"
"No wonder the valley of this name has the word "Wind." That wind that just passed us is demonic wind! It's so terrifying. If we truly got caught in the gust, if those tens, thousands. and millions of streams of astral wind had smashed into our bodies, wouldn't it be the same as getting attacked by millions of weapons?"
Bao Bao was incredibly embarrassed and did not dare to look Qin Wushuang in the eyes.
"It's good that you are alright, don't try to be brave next time." Qin Wushuang could not blame them. After all, these two were spiritual beast and possessed a natural personality to not fear anything. This was a unique aspect of the beast race.
They had fortunately gotten through this unexpected disturbance and daunting experience without a mishap. However, it had sufficiently served as a reminder to Qin Wushuang. They must not try to be brave in this place or think it too easy. Once they started to possess such thoughts, then they would already have set one foot inside the devil's door.
This way, Qin Wushuang and his friends had become even more careful. Bao Bao and Lone also put aside their mischievous behaviour and started to treat it seriously.
"Boss, why do you say this valley is called the Nine Refined Mysterious Wind Valley. We have experienced the words Mysterious Wind, how can the word Nine Refined be explained?"
Bao Bao could not hold back his chatterbox personality.
"The words Nine Refined should be related to training. Didn't you hear Luo Yang mentioning it? For this Nine Refined Mysterious Wind Valley, ordinary disciples are not qualified to enter. Only core disciples have this opportunity. Perhaps, the words Nine Refined represent nine levels of challenges?" Lone explained while thinking himself as clever.
"Impossible, how could there be such an explanation." Bao Bao scoffed at Lone's explanation.
Perhaps, Lone also knew that his explanation was somewhat far-fetched. He laughed and looked at Qin Wushuang as he wanted to hear his opinions.
Qin Wushuang said: "This name leaves a lot of space for imagination. Let's not worry about what the name means. The main thing is what exactly is hidden inside this Nine Refined Mysterious Wind Valley. Senior Lu Xianlou had vaguely directed us here for a reason."
"Didn't Luo Yang say? Two Divine Dao level spiritual beasts are sealed here. Senior Lu Xianlou must want us to destroy that Subduing Devil Stone Tablet to release those two spiritual beasts of the Divine Dao, right?" Bao Bao also asked with uncertainty.
Qin Wushuang shook his head: "We don't know for certain at the moment. Luo Yang also said that part is only a rumor. Whether it be true or not, in the Heavenly Luo Daoist Sect, only Luo Tongtian knows the truth."
Bao Bao said with determination: "Whether Divine Dao spiritual beasts are sealed there or not, that Subduing Devil Stone Tablet is the key point!"
Qin Wushuang nodded: "Yes, regardless, let's find that stone tablet first."
During their exchange, they passed through that dense and dark pine forest. Yet, another tall slope appeared in front of them. Clouds and mist surrounded this high slope and obscured the area.
Fortunately, Bao Bao had practiced the "Pupil Attachment Technique" up to the "Divine Pink-Eye" stage. He could see through the mist and further places with his vision.
Although he could not look very far, without any obstacles, he could see much more than Qin Wushuang could.
"Bao Bao, did you see any suspicious places?"
"Besides wild and craggy stones all the way up on this high slope, there is nothing special." Bao Bao said.
"Go up to look." Qin Wushuang did not linger and walked up.
To them, they were pressed for time and it could be said they were fighting for every second. The slightest delay could make the plan fail.
Since they were even closer to their target, of course Qin Wushuang would not let the duck that was about to be eaten fly away! Whenever he thought about the terrible news regarding the Stargaze Palace, that surge of anger inside Qin Wushuang's chest would ignite into a raging blaze again.
After they climbed past the hill and reached the top, Bao Bao looked into the distance and was overjoyed: "Boss, look, what is that?"
In the distance and wrapped in smoky mist, the tall and erect stone tablet reaching through the clouds was a spectacular and magnificent sight. Feeling overjoyed inwardly, Qin Wushuang said: "Subduing Devil Stone Tablet?"
"Yes, it sure is." Bao Bao and Lone were jubilant.
They dashed towards the underside with joy. That Subduing Devil Stone Tablet was located on the peak of the slope across this one. However, there was the principle of how no amount of hope can stir a dead horse. Although the tablet was across from their current location, going down the hill and getting to the other one appeared to be rather troublesome.
Since the restriction set in the Nine Refined Mysterious Wind Valley was incredibly powerful, they could not fly in the air. Therefore, they must go around the road.
After passing through a few trenches, and climbing a few slopes, finally they had arrived at the mountain slope where the stone tablet located. The closer they approached, the more they felt the towering and imposing presence of this stone tablet.
"Let's go!" Qin Wushuang was also overjoyed. With the target before them, he also felt incredibly exuberant.
Bao Bao and Lone cheered and dashed forward at a rapid speed. Suddenly, Qin Wushuang sensed a surge of cold murderous intentions as he immediately shouted: "Hold on!"
He urgently leaped forward and tackled Bao Bao and Lone to the ground.
Almost at the same time, ten- thousand golden lights were activated around the stone tablet, like a giant sword formation. Ten thousands sword lights shot out like golden needles.
Such immense danger!
Qin Wushuang, Bao Bao and Lone rolled down the slope and evaded the attack from this golden light. As they watched the surface of this Subduing Devil Stone Tablet from afar, a layer of dim golden light was still attached to it and gave off a sense of resplendence. If they had been a mere three metres closer a moment ago, most likely Bao Bao and his friends would have been turned into a porcupine by the golden lights.
"Boss, you saved us again." Upon surviving by the skin of one's teeth, Bao Bao and Lone felt incredibly lucky.
Qin Wushuang only shook his head and did not speak a word. He only observed that towering stone tablet attentively. That stone tablet had appeared smooth and did not leave any hints.
Just by looking at its the appearance, one could not obtain any clues.
Qin Wushuang paced a few times outside this stone tablet and could not find any clues. It seemed that this stone tablet had stood there since ancient times. Appearing wordless and uncommunicative, it was filled with solemnity.
"Boss, could it truly be suppressing some Divine Dao beasts?" With a face, full of curiosity, Bao Bao looked at this stone tablet and was feeling rather amazed.
However, Lone said: "Boss, regardless whether it is a sealed stone tablet, since it's in the Heavenly Luo Daoist Sect, certainly it's related with the sect's benefits. Let's just destroy it."
"Yes, since Mr. Lu Xianlou had guided us to here, for sure he was aiming at this Subduing Devil Stone Tablet. Boss, how about we start!" Bao Bao also motivated him.
Inwardly, Qin Wushuang also hesitated. He was sure that this place had a close relationship with the Heavenly Luo Daoist Sect. Regardless of the Subduing Devil Stone Tablet, for sure this tablet was a significant place to the sect. The difficulty of entry had clearly shown that things were most likely as Lu Xianlou had said, that this stone tablet was connected to the Heavenly Luo Daoist Sect in every way.
"Luo Yang once said that to destroy this stone tablet, one must possess Divine Dao power!" Apparently, Qin Wushuang had many worries.
"Boss, you have the Graceful Spiritual Bow, it's a Divine Dao weapon right?" Lone asked.
"Yes, there are five Divine Dao Five Elemental Talisman. For sure it was left to you by Senior Lu Xianlou. Boss, don't hesitate. Think about it, perhaps people of the Heavenly Luo Daoist Sect are still slaughtering humans back home!"
Murderous intentions flashed violently in Qin Wushuang's eyes as he thought: "Mr. Lu Xianlou's instruction had ended at the Subduing Devil Stone Tablet. It seems that this stone tablet is the final destination marked out by Lu Xianlou. Since we have arrived here through trials and tribulations, regardless of the result, and regardless of whether it is related to the sect, I don't have any other choice!"
Inwardly, Qin Wushuang's apprehensions from the bottom of his heart were due to fear, but because he had suddenly remembered his experience at the Green Jade Mountain.
That Green Jade Mountain was located at the boundary of the Great Luo and the Heavenly Lake Empires of the human countries. It was also the location for the First Circle of the Seven Deadly Formation Arrays.
Initially, Qin Wushuang had fallen into the spiritual teleportation formation after he had entered the cave. He had activated the formation and leveled the entire Green Jade mountain flat.
That experience had left a profound impression. Currently, Qin Wushuang was worried about a repeat of that situation. If that scene were to happen, it may result in the destruction to the Heavenly Luo Daoist Sect. However, their deaths would also be unavoidable.
Such hesitation did not last too long. After a moment, Qin Wushuang made up his mind. Since he had come to this place, and chosen to declare war on the Heavenly Luo Daoist Sect, with such opportunity before him, he must give it a try regardless of the outcome. This was his only choice for him to fight against the Heavenly Luo Daoist Sect!
