Chapter 705: Half a Wing!
Elder Qiuxi was shocked and immediately retaliated to stop it.
Mu Qinghe raised his arm and held up the sword sheath, which coincidentally stopped the black arrow.
A crisp impact sound was heard!
Mu Qinghe’s expression changed.
The strength encompassed within this arrow was very great, and it directly numbed half his arm. However, he didn’t even stop the arrow completely and only made it deviate from its original target slightly.
Elder Qiuxi was infuriated, but he also couldn’t execute any other moves in time. Hence, he could only catch it bare-handed.
He did catch the arrow, but his palm seemed to be on fire.
Elder Qiuxi’s eyelids twitched harshly, and he wanted to let go immediately. However, there were so many watching in the surroundings. How could he do such a thing?
Hence, he could only forcefully tolerate it and silently swallow this suffering.
But the arrow was too strong. After it landed in his hands, it didn’t even stop and was still turning crazily.
That arrow actually swarmed out of Elder Qiuxi’s hands! As its trajectory was shifted earlier, the arrow still flew past his head in the end, closely nearing his skin.
Elder Qiuxi felt that his scalp was almost scraped apart, but what pained him the most at this point wasn’t the pain from his scalp, but—
He slightly opened his hands and quickly took a look—his palm was already badly mangled.
Elder Qiuxi’s heart harshly skipped a beat. If that arrow really pierced through my glabella… I’m afraid my life would’ve been lost!
After the shock, he was scared. Then, he was furious.
Elder Qiuxi felt that his entire heart was overwhelmed with extreme rage, which almost made him crazy. He raised his head angrily and stared at Lei Laosi with a deadly gaze. “You…”
“What about me?” Lei Laosi raised his hands, and the arrow turned and returned to his hands. He glanced at it and wiped it against his rough clothes in disgust before putting it back into his container.
It was as if it was stained with something dirty.
“I’m not afraid to tell you that with me, Lei Laosi, around, nobody shall think of entering this barrier!” said Lei Laosi as he glared at Elder Qiuxi with warning.
The corner of his eyes turned red, and his entire face was furious. It could be seen that he was indeed infuriated.
Without a doubt, whoever went forward would immediately get their hearts pierced through.
The entire scene was quiet for a moment.
Even Elder Qiuxi—who had suffered greatly—took a while before he recovered his senses. He opened his mouth, but he didn’t know how to retort. This Lei Laosi’s abilities… are definitely above all of us!
Elder Qiuxi was a very prideful person and loved to fight for the front for everything. But in the face of danger, he also knew how to lower his head and give in.
He had no choice as he was the weaker one.
Elder Qiuxi tried his best to make his expression look more natural, but his stiff face still betrayed him and showed his nervousness and fear at this moment. “W-who are you? Why are you so arrogant? Is this ninth-grade fiend yours?”
Lei Laosi looked at him with a gaze as if he were looking at a dead person. “It seems like you didn’t suffer enough just now?”
He spoke and acted as if he was going to ready his bow again.
Elder Qiuxi’s heart trembled, and he unwittingly took half a step back.
Chu Liuyue glanced at him, and her lips curled up. She didn’t laugh out loud, but who couldn’t notice her mocking intent?
Elder Qiuxi instantly felt humiliated and felt that his entire reputation was tarnished. “I-I’ll go find the Third Princess first…”
Then, he turned around to leave without hesitation.
Even after walking a distance, Elder Qiuxi’s face didn’t recover. It’s the first time I’ve been humiliated to this extent!
Mu Qinghe looked at Lei Laosi, and his gaze deepened. When Lei Laosi took action just now, he clearly wanted to kill him… Who exactly is he? He acted so ruthlessly because he felt that he was offended, or… because of something else?
Another lightning bolt struck.
Chu Liuyue turned around and focused on it.
This was already the fifth bolt of lightning—the fiend had already endured half of the nine bolts of lightning.
Meanwhile, the transparent portion of the barrier also expanded to almost half the total height. But the weird thing was that until now, the crowd still couldn’t see what that fiend looked like.
Chu Liuyue examined it in detail, and suddenly, her gaze focused. “What’s… that?”
Hearing her voice, the few of them followed her gaze and looked over. A wilted orange… tree bark?!
“That looks like a tree!” Ye Ranran’s eyes were sharp, and she was the first to speak.
Actually, Chu Liuyue saw it too.
In the centermost position of that barrier seemed to be a gigantic and thick rolling leaf fir. At the start, they could only see a pile of fallen leaves and the extended roots, but they could now see part of the tree trunk.
This tree was even more magnificent and taller than all the other trees they had seen before.
Chu Liuyue took a close look and realized that even if five people hugged the tree together, it wouldn’t even be enough. But isn’t it a ninth-grade fiend that’s trying to break through inside this barrier? Why did a tree suddenly appear out of nowhere?
Following the flashing of the lights above, it was also very hard for the crowd to clearly see what was inside other than the tree.
Luckily, the rainbow light on the barrier kept gathering upward.
Another portion of the barrier became transparent underneath, and the suppression became increasingly strong.
It was obvious that the fiend had successfully endured the fifth bolt of lightning.
The sound of a wing flapping was suddenly heard.
A large shadow reflected against the barrier, outlining half its exterior.
Mu Hongyu gasped. “That really is a wing! It must be that fiend’s!”
She couldn’t conceal her excitement as she shouted to Chu Liuyue. “Liuyue, that’s what we saw!”
She finished her sentence, but Chu Liuyue didn’t respond to her. Mu Hongyu couldn’t help but turn around to look at the other and realized that Chu Liuyue was staring right at that barrier with a face filled with shock.
“Liuyue, Liuyue? What’s wrong?” Mu Hongyu gently pushed her shoulders uneasily and asked softly.
All the blood in Chu Liuyue’s body seemed to have frozen, and she opened her mouth with much difficulty. “Did you see… the color of that wing?”
Mu Hongyu paused. “Color? I think… I think it’s rainbow, right? What’s wrong?”
Chu Liuyue’s heart shook. That half a wing just now… I’m more familiar with it than ever! That’s.. The Nine-Colored Heavenly Pheasant’s wing!
