"Bladelike Chi, quick!"
Teng Qingshan hastily pointed northward. The Six Legged Bladelike Chi responded with a roar. Its wings fluttered as it flew north, leaving behind a fleeting and strange-looking afterimage.
"Chase after them!" Yu Tonghai hastily ordered.
Liu Xia wore an indifferent expression while Shengong Tu gripped the godly bow with one hand and the Void Piercing Arrow with the other, preparing to shoot another Void Piercing Arrow. The first three arrows had almost killed the Bladelike Chi. The Bladelike Chi was only able to survive because Teng Qingshan had the Grass of Immortality. As for the fourth arrow, Shengong Tu had shot it towards the Six Legged Bladelike Chi's chest.
However, because of how tough the Six Legged Bladelike Chi's limbs were, Shengong Tu failed.
"The fifth arrow must be successful." Shengong Tu's eyes were like that of a wolf hunting for its prey, constantly searching for the best chance to attack.
The two Emptiness Realm Demonic Beasts pursued crazily after one another, moving faster than the speed of light.
Normally, demonic birds that had attained the Golden Dan of the Innate Realm could fly from the Great Prairie to Yangzhou within twelve hours. It took only an hour for a Golden Dan Innate demonic bird to fly a distance of two thousand Li. However, an Emptiness Realm demonic bird could fly ten times faster than the Golden Dan Innate demonic bird. Actually, the flying speed of the Emptiness Realm demonic birds might be even faster than the aforementioned speed.
To the Six Legged Bladelike Chi, who was flying desperately, and the Wind Splitting Dragon Falcon, a distance of two thousand Li was considered short.
"The distance from here to Heavenly Cloud Mountain is around 2000 Li." Teng Qingshan held the Splitting Mountain Axe and was constantly on guard. "We must make it through this distance of 2000 Li… If I am able to survive during this course of two thousand Li… They will be out of luck!"
The Wind Splitting Dragon Falcon was gradually getting closer to the Six Legged Bladelike Chi.
"What's going on? The Dragon Falcon's speed seems to have slowed," Yu Tonghai commented in surprise.
"It is slower." Shengong Tu frowned and replied, "When we were chasing the Bladelike Chi earlier, the Dragon Falcon was obviously much faster than the Bladelike Chi. But now it is just slightly faster, and it is taking much longer to reduce the distance between us and them.
Liu Xia stooped on the back of the Dragon Falcon. He looked at the Wind Splitting Dragon Falcon's wings and said, "Earlier, the tail of the demonic dragon lashed the dragon falcon's back, inflicting damage on its wings. Therefore, it is unable to display its full speed." As Liu Xia spoke, he caressed the cracked parts of the scaled armor on the back of the Wind Splitting Dragon Falcon.
"I see." Yu Tonghai and Shengong Tu also recalled when the dragon tail lashed toward the Wind Splitting Dragon Falcon.
The demonic dragon was indeed incredibly powerful.
This top-ranked Emptiness Realm Demonic Beast was a pain even to the combined forces of the Wind Splitting Dragon Falcon and three experts who had achieved Emptiness Realm Culmination.
"We are getting closer. Only 50 Zhang away." Yu Tonghai narrowed his eyes as he spoke.
Immediately, Shengong Tu held his breath as he drew the godly bow and placed the arrow.
The distance between them and the Bladelike Chi was now 50 Zhang, and this distance was continually decreasing!
"Desperate times call for desperate measures. Today, it's either my death or their deaths." Teng Qingshan glared at Shengong Tu, who had drawn his bow and placed the arrow. With the previous experiences, Shengong Tu couldn't possibly make the same mistakes… Moreover, he wouldn't aim his arrow at Teng Qingshan.
Shengong Tu had to ensure that neither of the two remaining Void Piercing Arrows were wasted!
The Wind Splitting Dragon Falcon suddenly arched down. When the Dragon Falcon was 42 Zhang away from the Bladelike Chi, Shengong Tu instantly saw the best chance to release the arrow into the air. A fierce glint flashed in his eyes as he released his right grip without any hesitation. With this, the Void Piercing Arrow on the bowstring instantly disappeared.
"Shengong Tu!!!" A furious roar sounded.
The moment Shengong Tu shot the arrow, Teng Qingshan actually kicked the Six Legged Bladelike Chi's back forcefully, sending the Bladelike Chi to the side. He then rebounded forward at a much faster speed and blocked the terrifying arrow with the Splitting Mountain Axe in his hands!
When the Void Piercing Arrow touched the Splitting Mountain Axe, it turned into dust.
Teng Qingshan himself was struck backward along with the Splitting Mountain Axe.
"It's okay." Teng Qingshan gnashed his teeth and groaned painfully as he tried to endure the pain and numbness caused by the powerful force that was moving along his hands, arms, and to his entire body. In order to block the Void Piercing Arrow, he had increased the input Power of the Heavens and Earth by ten percent. Although it was painful, it was much better than the previous two experiences.
Shengong Tu and the other two were shocked. It was extremely difficult to block the arrow fired earlier. In fact, the Bladelike Chi wouldn't be able to block with its bladelike limbs, while Teng Qingshan wouldn't be able to block the arrow if he had been on the Bladelike Chi's back. However, no one had expected Teng Qingshan to jump down and stop this arrow.
"He's really courting death."
"He actually dared to jump off the back of the Bladelike Chi even though he has not achieved the Emptiness Realm Culmination and can't fly at all. Haha…"
Shengong Tu and the other two were first shocked. But then, they all burst out in laughter.
When Teng Qingshan, who couldn't fly, leaped into the air, he obviously became an easy target in the sky!
"Hmph." Teng Qingshan sneered coldly. With the control of the Power of the Heavens and Earth, he actually increased the falling speed.
He was like a meteorite that had descended from the outer space, falling at an extremely rapid speed.
The Six Legged Bladelike Chi, who had been kicked away, immediately roared and rocketed towards Teng Qingshan. Simultaneously, Shengong Tu and the other two, as well as the Wind Splitting Dragon Falcon, transformed into four streaks of flowing light and went towards Teng Qingshan from different directions. All of them refused to miss such a good chance to kill Teng Qingshan. They were able to fly as they had all achieved the Emptiness Realm Culmination.
The experts who could fly were much faster in midair.
As for the ones who couldn't fly, they could only try to do what Teng Qingshan was currently doing: increase the falling speed and hope that they could reach the ground as soon as possible.
"Haha, Jing Yi! You will die this time."
Yu Tonghai was the first to reach Teng Qingshan. The sword in his hands was like the first beam of sunlight in complete darkness. The gentle and invincible strike of the sword made Teng Qingshan feel as though he had lost all his strength. Feelings of despair and hopelessness naturally emerged in his heart.
Clang! Without any defensive equipment, Teng Qingshan held the Splitting Mountain Axe before his chest and used it as a shield.
The strike of the sword contained such terrifying strength that it had gone through the Splitting Mountain Axe and numbed Teng Qingshan's hands. However, Teng Qingshan remained calm. He used the force produced by the sword to increase the falling speed.
By borrowing the force of this terrifying sword strike, Teng Qingshan plopped into the wide river below, creating white splashes of water.
"How is that even possible? How did he block the arrow again?"
"He has blocked two Void Piercing Arrow and survived against the Slaughtering Air Spikes. Even though his weapon could handle the impact, his arms should be completely numb and his internal organs should be severely injured after receiving that terrifyingly powerful rebounding impact. He hasn't even achieved the Emptiness Realm Culmination, so what had happened earlier shouldn't be possible. How did he block the arrow with such stability?"
What had happened earlier was beyond the expectations of Yu Tonghai and the other two. They knew Teng Qingshan was wearing the Hong Tian Godly Armor and thought that the axe would have a weaker defense than the Hong Tian Godly Armor. Therefore, they decided to aim toward the axe instead of the Godly Armor.
Hong Tian Godly Armor was so famous that even the experts who had achieved the Emptiness Realm Culmination couldn't bear to damage it.
Unfortunately… None of them knew that the axe was Emperor Yu's personal weapon and that it had a much higher toughness.
Whoosh! Whoosh! Whoosh!
Although they were shocked, none of the Emptiness Realm Experts hesitated. They dashed into the flowing river below. At this moment, the Six Legged Bladelike Chi flew in mid-air and tried to save Teng Qingshan, but it was unfortunately stopped by the Wind Splitting Dragon Falcon. The Bladelike Chi fluttered its four wings and flew in a circular motion and dove into the river too.
A while later.
Teng Qingshan and the Six Legged Bladelike Chi emerged from the surface of the earth and soared high up into the sky.
"Yu Tonghai, did you guys think you could catch me? Let me tell you all! If I survive today, then you all will die." Teng Qingshan's voice sounded in the ears of the three experts who had achieved Emptiness Realm Culmination. "As***le," Yu Tonghai said as he gnashed his teeth angrily. Liu Xia and Shengong Tu also looked very furious.
Their speed underground was similar to that of Teng Qingshan; therefore, catching Teng Qingshan became harder. Earlier, they had accidentally given Teng Qingshan the chance to meet the Six Legged Bladelike Chi and burst out of the earth together.
"Jing Yi has the Hong Tian Godly Armor and the battle axe," Liu Xia said softly. "I don't understand how he defended the attacks head-on repeatedly, but it doesn't matter. It is obvious that our plan is failing. If we want to kill Jing Yi, the easiest way is to have two people attack him together. Tonghai, if you had attacked him with me instead of attacking by yourself first, he wouldn't have been able to defend himself. With only one axe, he can only defend against one person's attack. If he had blocked yours, I would've been able to grasp the chance and take his life."
This move was indeed fierce.
These three experts were able to find the problem after the occurrence of only one mistake. They were determined to never make the same mistake again.
"We have missed our chance to kill him," Yu Tonghai said bitterly.
While they were discussing, they had climbed onto the Wind Splitting Dragon Falcon's back and continued their pursuit.
"Shengong, that's our last Void Piercing Arrow. We can't afford to fail anymore," Yu Tonghai and Liu Xia said as they stared at Shengong Tu in a serious manner.
Shengong Tu himself also felt an immense pressure.
He had brought six Void Piercing Arrows and had used five of them. The Grass of Immortality did save Teng Qingshan, but the reality was that all five of the arrows had failed.
"The Bladelike Chi has lost one limb; therefore, it is impossible for it to drill the ground in a spiral manner. When it is underground, it can only drill and dig like an Emptiness Realm Expert." Teng Qingshan was secretly very anxious. "Shengong has one arrow left. The Bladelike Chi can dodge very quickly in mid-air, but if it goes underground, it could be shot very easily."
Teng Qingshan didn't dare to take any risks, thus he didn't ask the Six Legged Bladelike Chi to escape by going underground.
As for Shengong Tu, he didn't dare to shoot the last arrow in a careless manner.
The Wind Splitting Dragon Falcon continued to pursue. However, the Six Legged Bladelike Chi dodged repeatedly. Clearly, the Six Legged Bladelike Chi had been able to gain an advantage through its excellent agility. The Wind Splitting Dragon Falcon and the Six Legged Bladelike Chi were at most 60 Zhang away from each other or at least 30 Zhang away from each other. But now, things had changed. The Wind Splitting Dragon Falcon was now the main force of attack, while Shengong Tu was now the support.
The Wind Splitting Dragon Falcon sent out more shapeless Slaughtering Air Spikes, causing the Six Legged Bladelike Chi to wave its limbs and defend itself. However, every time it tried to block, a wound would appear on a bladelike limb and green-colored blood would be seen.
"The Wind Splitting Dragon Falcon is so troublesome. If the demonic dragon hadn't injured it and caused its speed to decrease, the situation would be even worse," Teng Qingshan thought to himself, and he felt fortunate. Because of that, the power of the Slaughtering Air Spikes became much weaker than the Void Piercing Arrow. Although the Six Legged Bladelike Chi was injured, it wasn't severely injured.
"Usually, the Bladelike Chi could cover the distance of 2000 Li very quickly. But today, they had almost died.
"Heavenly Cloud Mountain!"
Suddenly, Teng Qingshan saw the lofty mountain far away, but everything above the lofty mountain had turned black.
The originally beautiful mountain peak had completely disappeared. In fact, almost half of the mountain had been burned. On the mountain, where sparkles of fire crackled, two legendary godly birds enveloped by flames could be seen standing on a black rock. Beside them stood the Dreamy Cloud Martial Immortal, who carried an enormous wolf-headed war saber on his back.
The Dreamy Cloud Martial Immortal's eyes brightened as he turned and looked southward. "Brother Qingshan is here!"
The Undying Phoenix 'Little Blue' immediately flew up excitedly, and the Dreamy Cloud Martial Immortal immediately leaped up onto the back of the Little Blue.
Teng Qingshan stood on the back of the Six Legged BLadelike Chi and flew towards Heavenly Cloud Mountain like a fierce gust of wind. At this moment, the Six Legged Bladelike Chi was in a very embarrassing state as his four hind legs were severely injured, leaving only the two front legs intact.
"Eh? Even Brother Mu Tao came?" Teng Qingshan was very happy.
High up in the sky, two fiery, flowing lights dashed down from Heavenly Cloud Mountain one after the other. A figure then leaped off the first fiery light.
"Haha, Qingshan, my boy, it's been quite a while!" The Dreamy Cloud Martial Immortal's candid voice resonated in mid-air.
