Chapter 52 The Intense Battle Between the Five
The Blind Swordmaster was extremely furious. However, he wasn’t angry because of Teng Qingshan’s words. Instead, it was because…
It was because of the sudden emergence of the demonic beast who had killed and injured several thousand Silver Dragon Soldiers all at once. The entire Silver Dragon Army had collapsed. This meant that the Blind Swordmaster’s plan to destroy the Gui Yuan Sect had already failed 90%. There was still a 10% chance of succeeding if they manage to—
…Kill Jing Yi! And kill that Demonic Beast!
Only then would the morale of the Silver Dragon Soldiers rise! Only then would they revere the Blind Swordmaster and destroy the Gui Yuan Sect out of obedience!
“Blind Man Tie, why aren’t you moving?” The black-haired hunter asked the Blind Swordmaster with the use of the Sound Transmission Technique.
“You should work with the Shooting Sun Heavenly Wolf and kill that demonic beast. I will handle Jing Yi,” the Blind Swordmaster answered with the use of the Sound Transmission Technique.
“Alright,” the black-haired hunter replied quickly.
“Howl~~” With a deep growl, the black-haired hunter called the Sun Shooting Heavenly Wolf that was below him.
“Swoosh! Swoosh! Swoosh!”
Three shadow scuttled out rapidly at the same time.
“Die, Jing Yi!” Blind Sword Saint shouted with a eardrum-bursting voice.
“Bladelike Chi.” Teng Qingshan gave the Six Legged Bladelike Chi a glance, hinting at it to move. As it had been with Teng Qingshan for a long time, it was able to understand some of Teng Qingshan’s simple gestures and expressions.
With a burst of physical strength, visible blue veins popped up everywhere on Teng Qingshan’s body. Beams of lightning seemed to shoot out from Teng Qingshan’s eyes, making it impossible for one to look into them. At this moment, Teng Qingshan was like an unrivalled demonic god. He scuttled madly, sprinting nimbly and cleverly. Within two flashes, he appeared at the Blind Swordmaster’s left side.
“Take this, Tie Wu,” Teng Qingshan’s deafening roar rumbled in the Blind Swordmaster’s ears.
A flowing light of three colors swirled on the edge of the Splitting Mountain Axe. The surrounding air distorted wherever the axe passed. This was the technique Emperor Yu had created over six thousand years ago and had not been shown again since. The power of the Splitting Mountain Axe enveloped and entrapped the Blind Swordmaster. Momentarily, the Blind Swordmaster was unable to escape and had no choice but to fight forcefully.
“Where did Jing Yi learn his axe art? Who created this technique? It is so powerful!” The Blind Swordmaster cursed inwardly.
“Hmph.” Still, on the surface, the Blind Swordmaster gave a sneer and simply touched the axe with the thin iron rod in his hand.
It was just one touch.
A loud clang rang out, and Teng Qingshan felt a vigorous force come from the Splitting Mountain Axe, which numbed his hands. Then Teng Qingshan slid and arced backward like a fish. The Blind Swordmaster immediately shot two beams of black light toward Teng Qingshan. Yet, Teng Qingshan still managed to dodge the attack.
“Jing Yi’s body art is different now.” The Blind Swordmaster was astonished.
“I can’t kill the Blind Swordmaster by myself. I am not strong enough,” Teng Qingshan realized. Thus, while he was retreating…
“Bladelike Chi!” Teng Qingshan shouted with the use of the Sound Transmission Technique.
The Shooting Sun Heavenly Wolf and Shen Gongtu were encircling and pursuing the Six Legged Bladelike Chi. The Six Legged Bladelike Chi was fighting with the Shooting Sun Heavenly Wolf and even managed to hurt it, while Shen Gongtu placed the arrow and drew his bow. The godly wooden bow was fully drawn.
However, it was during this very moment that Teng Qingshan’s shout caused the Six Legged Bladelike Chi to fly into the air immediately. It arced and easily made a turn before pouncing toward the Blind Swordmaster at an incredibly fast speed.
“Haha, Tie Wu. Let’s have another round.” Teng Qingshan guffawed and charged toward the Blind Swordmaster with the Six Legged Bladelike Chi in succession.
The Blind Swordmaster wasn’t afraid at all as he thought to himself, “All is well. I will finish this demonic beast first.” It was obvious that the Blind Swordmaster thought that it was much easier to kill the Six Legged Bladelike Chi.
While thinking this, the Blind Swordmaster hastily performed his body art, aiming to break away from Teng Qingshan in order to fight the Six Legged Bladelike Chi alone.
“Do you think you can escape from me?” Teng Qingshan sneered coldly. Within two flashes, he appeared beside the Blind Swordmaster. After integrating the body art《Thirty-six Splitting Mountain Axe》with his own learnings, Teng Qingshan was able to perform his body art even more smoothly.
“So troublesome.” The Blind Swordmaster was very anxious.
There was no time. He was already encircled by Teng Qingshan and the Six Legged Bladelike Chi. Immediately, Teng Qingshan swung the Splitting Mountain Axe which radiated a three-colored light toward the Blind Swordmaster. Meanwhile, the Six Legged Bladelike Chi cunningly moved beside the Blind Swordmaster and attacked the Blind Swordmaster simultaneously with its four bladelike arms.
“Whew~~” Although the Blind Swordmaster couldn’t see, he could sense his surroundings.
The air in his surroundings was torn into pieces by the huge axe and the four huge blades. The Blind Swordmaster had only one thin and narrow rod. How could he defend against these five attacks?
“Heh!” The Blind Swordmaster roared and immediately began whirling like a spinning top. Borrowing the force produced during the collision of the thin iron rod and the Splitting Mountain Axe, the Blind Swordmaster began whirling at an even faster speed. In the end, he actually blocked three of the Six Legged Bladelike Chi’s strikes!
The Bladelike Chi’s fourth strike was smacked to the side with the Blind Swordmaster’s left hand.
The thin iron rod turned, and a black beam of light shot into the Six Legged Bladelike Chi’s chest.
“Roar~~” A light flickered in the Six Legged Bladelike Chi’s red eyes. As it breathed loudly, it suddenly lifted its two lower limbs. The sharp edge of the bladelike limbs immediately headed toward the lower half of the Blind Swordmaster’s body. However, this was not the end. The Six Legged Bladelike Chi’s upper limbs suddenly fired two sharp spines!
It was a close-range shot.
The Blind Swordmaster reacted immediately by kicking out with both of his both legs, slamming into the lower limbs of the Six Legged Bladelike Chi. However, the two sharp spikes were too quick as they struck the Blind Swordmaster’s chest.
“Clang! Clang!” The collision of iron rang out. The Blind Swordmaster’s black cloth was pierced, revealing the silver armor inside.
The Blind Swordmaster immediately retreated at a rapid speed, with drops of perspiration covering his forehead.
“What a terrifying demonic beast! It is born to kill!” The Blind Swordmaster’s first interaction with the Bladelike Chi shocked him. “The four upper limbs and the two lower limbs are exceptionally trenchant. It’s like six blades attacking at the same time. Moreover, the sharp spikes…. I did not expect the power of the two spikes to be this powerful. Furthermore, my attack didn’t harm the beast at all. My attack was affected by its stealth attack, and I only managed to display sixty percent of its true power. However, its scale armor is really too—”
The Blind Swordmaster could sense even a grain of sand within an area of several Zhang.
So, he could sense that the Six Legged Bladelike Chi’s scale armor was still intact.
With the six blades attacking, as well as the concealed weapon, it was a terrifying defense!
This type of demonic beast was indeed born to kill!
“Dang it. He escaped,” Teng Qingshan cursed when he saw this.
Teng Qingshan had planned to kill the Blind Swordmaster and wanted the Six Legged Bladelike Chi to attack him stealthily. Unfortunately… “That old man is wearing godly inner armor.”
The Blind Swordmaster wore a full suit of war armor underneath his clothes. He didn’t want to wear a full suit of steel armor, but he did wear inner armor, as well as armbands and war boots. He had only managed to survive because of the inner armor and the war boots.
“Shen Gongtu, kill the demonic beast with the Heavenly Wolf. The demonic beast’s scale armor has extremely strong defense. Attack its internal organs with the force of yin. Don’t attack it forcefully!” The Blind Swordmaster said hastily with the use of the Sound Transmission Technique.
Indeed, this was the Six Legged Bladelike Chi’s weakness.
In the past, Teng Qingshan had used the move Splitting Mountain and defeated the Six Legged Bladelike Chi, who had been a Golden Dan Innate Demonic Beast back then.
“Jing Yi!” The Blind Swordmaster shouted. Then he transformed into a black stream of light and scuttled toward Teng Qingshan.
“Tie Wu, watch me kill this Jing Yi,” a voice rang in the Blind Swordmaster’s ears.
Hearing this, the Blind Swordmaster was shocked and then elated. “Jing Yi is a very troublesome opponent. Perhaps Shen Gongtu is willing to use a Void Piercing Arrow? Otherwise, how can he be this confident?” The most powerful skills of the Shooting Sun God Mountain were the archery techniques. The power of the godly arrows which the Shooting Sun God Mountain possessed had reached their peak.
Even a Emptiness Realm Culmination Expert would fear this extremely powerful arrow that Shen Gongtu wass about to fire.
“Roar~~” The Six Legged Bladelike Chi roared, seeming to be warning Teng Qingshan.
Teng Qingshan’s facial expression turned grim. He didn’t have the chance to care about the Blind Swordmaster’s attack because the black-haired hunter, Shen Gongtu, had drawn his bow at lightning speed. For a moment, rays of various colors gathered on this ancient bow. Simultaneously, an arrow which radiated a golden glow instantly tore through the void space, leaving a golden afterimage in the air. Then immediately, the arrow arrived right before Teng Qingshan.
The speed of the arrow was so fast that it was terrifying.
“Die!” Shen Gongtu said with a sneer. “I only have ten of these Void Piercing Arrows, but you will definitely die.”
Teng Qingshan raised the Splitting Mountain Axe. He had no time to escape. His only option was to defend himself with the Splitting Mountain Axe.
“Rumble~~” Teng Qingshan felt a terrifying penetrating force charge toward him.
Teng Qingshan’s entire body flew out like a shooting star. “Whew~~” He could only hear the howling wind as he flew backward. Teng Qingshan didn’t waste any energy in stopping himself. Instead, he watched the Blind Swordmaster cautiously, just in case the he attacked.
However, the Blind Swordmaster did not attack. He was just watching this scene in astonishment.
“What? H-His weapon didn’t break?”
“This axe… This axe must belong to an Insightful Emptiness Realm Expert. He must have forged it with the power of his own world.” The Blind Swordmaster was dumbstruck.
The power of the Void Bursting Arrow was extremely powerful
Each Bursting Void Arrow could only be used once. However, they were usually able to penetrate the weapon that the target was using for defense and consequently kill the target as well.
Teng Qingshan had blocked it with the huge axe!
After being sent flying back for around one to two Li, Teng Qingshan crashed heavily into the wall of Jiangning County-City. The entire city wall trembled slightly and swayed the over ten thousand soldiers who stood on the city wall. Everyone was astonished and dumbstruck as they stared at the huge hole and the cracked earth below.
Teng Qingshan leaped out of the hole his body had smashed into the city wall and laughed loudly. “I heard that the Shooting Sun God Mountain has exceptional archery technique… Seeing today, I can say that it is indeed out of the ordinary.”
“What?” Shen Gongtu’s face darkened.
Teng Qingshan guffawed. Although he seemed to be speaking with delight, he was secretly in pain. The impact of the collision had wounded his hands deeply.
“Thank the heavens for the Splitting Mountain Axe,” Teng Qingshan thought and then simultaneously cast a glance at the Six Legged Bladelike Chi. The two of them exchanged glances while being at a distance away from each other. With just an exchange of glances, the Six Legged Bladelike Chi understood Teng Qingshan’s intention.
