Book 9 Chapter 53 Incite Fear In You
With a mighty stomp, Teng Qingshan leaped and soared high into the air. Utilising both his peak physical strength and his control over the powers of the heavens and the earth, he was able to leap an immense height of over 100 Zhang. At the same time, the Six Legged Bladelike Chi, who was watching from afar, had already understood Teng Qingshan’s intentions. Spreading its two wings, it arced towards Teng Qingshan at an alarming speed.
Teng Qingshan landed gracefully on the body of the Six Legged Bladelike Chi.
“Jing Yi, don’t you dare run!” The Blind Swordmaster yelled angrily. He darted towards Jing Yi at a rapid speed, leaving only a dark afterimage.
Disdain flickered in the bloodshot red eyes of the Six Legged Bladelike Chi. As its wings buzzed, it executed an extremely complex flight pattern, arcing and curving in high altitude. The Blind Swordmaster couldn’t catch up. Morphing into a black phantom, the Six Legged Bladelike Chi flew towards the black-haired hunter, Shen Gongtu, at a rapid pace.
“Hahaha… Take your time, Tie Wu.” Teng Qingshan’s laughter echoed in the ears of the Blind Swordmaster.
The Blind Swordmaster’s grey eyes flashed. “The speed of this demonic beast is just too much.”
Perched on the back of Six Legged Bladelike Chi, Teng Qingshan’s eyes flashed as if lightning had struck within them.
“Let’s finish them off one by one”.
It would have been impossible for him to kill the Emptiness Realm Expert of the Shooting Sun God Mountain, had it been a one on one duel. However… it being a two on one battle, he held onto an ounce of confidence
“Hmph, he still uses bows and arrows?” Teng Qingshan mockingly laughed when he saw Shen Gongtu drew the bow.
The Six Legged Bladelike Chi’s blood red eyes flashed and the rapid beating of its wings began to intensify. For a moment, it was as though it had duplicated, flying parallel to its “clone” in the air. Shen Gongtu, who was about to fire an arrow, froze at the sight of this.
“Oh no.” Shen Gongtu’s expression darkened. The once confident hunter was suddenly unsure of his ability to hit a target flying at such a shocking speed in one shot.
“Hmph, the Bladelike Chi’s ability to fly in an erratic zig-zag motion at such a high speed was something that even Little Blue could not achieve.” Teng Qingshan thought to himself, “The Bladelike Chi has extremely thin wings, which is why it is able to quickly change directions at such an incredible speed.” Ever since it broke into the Emptiness Realm, Teng Qingshan had fought countless times with it. Through the battles, Teng Qingshan learned. Also, through working together countless times, he had witnessed many of the Bladelike Chi’s abilities.
After all, there are many powerful experts in the Land of the Nine Prefectures. Thus, Teng Qingshan always had to be prepared.
“Roar~~” Shen Gongtu hastily roared.
A giant silver wolf rushed in and stayed alongside Shen Gongtu. Meanwhile, Teng Qingshan, who was riding on the Six Legged Bladelike Chi, swooped down. Promptly, Teng Qingshan lunged towards Shen Gongtu while simultaneously raising his Splitting Mountain Axe high up and performing the 18th form of the «Thirty Six Splitting Mountain forms».
“Hmm?” Shen Gongtu drew his sword from his waist. Against Teng Qingshan’s axe, all he could do was to fight back with full force. For even if he were to retreat several Zhang, the axe would still make contact. Therefore, it would be smarter to stand and fight where he was.
Compared to his shooting skills, his proficiency with a blade was terrible.
“I have achieved Emptiness Realm Culmination. It is impossible for me to lose against someone who has never even neared the Emptiness Realm Culmination?” Shen Gongtu’s eyes froze. his short blade had never left its sheath; and he stared directly into the axe of Teng Qingshan.
Before the axe had even struck, a blast of air had been released. Teng Qingshan’s strong, muscular arms, imbued with the powers of the heavens and earth, had swung their strongest hit yet!
“Break!” Teng Qingshan yelled.
At that moment, Shen Gongtu drew his sword.
A blinding ray of light lit up and collided with the light from the Splitting Mountain Axe. Shen Gongtu and Teng Qingshan were both knocked back. Meanwhile, the Six Legged Bladelike Chi, who was about to attack Shen Gongtu, was intercepted by the giant silver wolf ‘Shooting Sun Heavenly Wolf’.
“Roar~~” the giant silver wolf roared.
“Roar~~” the Six Legged Chi stared at its opponent with its crimson eyes, and rushed in.
As the Six Legged Bladelike Chi approached the giant silver wolf, the wolf leaped up high and from the horn on its forehead shot out a ray of grey light. The light was as deadly as a lightning bolt, darting towards the Six Legged Bladelike Chi with an incredible speed. However, the Six Legged Bladelike Chi effortlessly waved an arm.
The grey light was deflected off the Six Legged Chi’s arm. The light had merely hindered its speed for a second. It recovered and continued charging forward.
The giant silver wolf hopped rapidly in place, each time leaving behind a phantom image, and swiftly pounced towards the Six Legged Bladelike Chi. Bringing along with it a strong gust of wind, the giant silver wolf’s two front claws glittered in the cold light as it attacked the Six Legged Bladelike Chi. Perhaps it was the immense speed of the giant silver wolf that was too fast.
Or perhaps it was that the Six Legged Bladelike Chi was too confident.
The Six Legged Bladelike Chi did not even care to dodge as it rushed in to cleave the giant silver wolf with its arms!
Its arms and the giant silver wolf’s claws collided, producing sparks and a deafening sound. However, the Six Legged Bladelike Chi had the advantage of having more arms, and even though the giant silver wolf tried its best to dodge, one of the Six Legged Bladelike Chi’s arms found its target and left a cut on the flesh of the giant silver wolf’s front legs.
The giant silver wolf’s skin was extremely tough but the razor-sharp arms of the Six Legged Chi still managed to cut open a wound. However, once the blood started to flow out, the giant silver wolf sealed the wound immediately.
The giant silver wolf went mad and fought madly against the Six Legged Bladelike Chi in a close distance. Its movements, which only seemed crazy, were as quick as lightning and each movement was unique; they used energy whilst simultaneously borrowing energy, and the wolf utilised various kinds of attacks which made it indefensible. “Bang!” the Six Legged Bladelike Chi was whipped by the giant silver wolf’s tail.
“Roar~~” the giant silver wolf, which had already received multiple cuts, pounced excitedly.
However, the Six Legged Bladelike Chi, which was in the air, thrashed its four wings and regained its balance immediately. The Six Legged Bladelike Chi’s bloodshot eyes were filled with rage. It was finally heated. It charged in with its four arms and two back legs. The six “war blades” were slashed towards the giant silver wolf.
As the two beasts fought, two sharp spines were shot out, but the skin of the giant silver wolf was too tough. The trenchant spines had only managed to enter half way before they flew back to the Six Legged Bladelike Chi.
The Six Legged Bladelike Chi’s six blades were formidable. The six blades, which swung crazily, were paired with the blade skills which the Six Legged Bladelike Chi had developed through cultivation for thousands of years. The moves might seem erratic. However, those moves would cause even Emptiness Realm Culmination Experts like the Blind Swordmaster, who is able to control the Power of the Heavens and Earth, to suffer.
“The Bladelike Chi went mad,” noticed Teng Qingshan, surprised.
Once the Six Legged Bladelike Chi went mad, it would use its four wings to keep its balance while using the six blades to attack. The current Bladelike Chi was terrifying that even Teng Qingshan would have to surrender to it.
As the two demonic beasts fought, the giant silver wolf’s body had started to concede more and more wounds, especially as its old wound was sliced open again by the Six Legged Bladelike Chi, causing the giant silver wolf to take a damaging laceration
“Roar~~” the giant silver wolf, who had gone mad only a while ago, let out a whimper and fled in the form of a silver light.
It was not the wound that scared the wolf. However, the fact that the Six Legged Bladelike Chi struck the same spot twice had incited fear in the giant silver wolf’s heart. Actually, the muscles and skin on its entire body was continually moving. Thus, it was almost impossible for one to strike the wolf’s body on the same spot twice.
Unfortunately, the Six Legged Bladelike Chi had six blades. If the giant silver wolf was not cautious, it would be cut.
“Roar~~” the Six Legged Bladelike Chi elevated into the air. The black scales on its body had also received some scratch marks, showing that the claws of the giant silver wolf were not at all weak.
The Six Legged Bladelike Chi charged once again towards the giant silver wolf. How could the giant silver wolf, which was running on the ground, stand a chance against the Six Legged Bladelike Chi, which is flying in the air?
“Tie Wu, you stupid blind man! Quick, go help the wolf!” exclaimed Shen Gongtu, who was busy with Teng Qingshan.
During the close distanced battle between the giant silver wolf and the Six Legged Bladelike Chi, they had already fought each other hundreds of times within the blink of an eye. Thus their battle had only lasted for a short while.
“Shen Gongtu is anxious now,” noted the Blind Swordmaster, “if this demonic wolf dies here, the Shooting Sun God Mountain will despise us.” To the Shooting Sun God Mountain, this demonic wolf was more important than a powerful Emptiness Realm Expert.
The Blind Swordmaster was about to rush over when—
“Roar~~” the giant silver wolf, unable to flee, had started digging. Before it had broken through the Emptiness Realm, the giant silver wolf had relied on its digging skills to hide from various flying demonic beasts. Now, it tries to use the same method!
“Roar~~” the Six Legged Bladelike Chi roared excitedly as it drilled underground.
It went underground
The Six Legged Bladelike Chi had its two front arms at its front, with its middle and back legs curved around its body. The spines on the Six Legged Bladelike Chi’s arms started moving, which suddenly caused the Six Legged Bladelike Chi to look like a centipede with six hundred tiny legs.
The six hundred spines then formed a spiral shape, resembling an electric drill.
Power Emptiness Realm Experts charge forward with their brute strength, while four-footed beasts scuttle with their four legs. This Six Legged Bladelike Chi was an ‘electric drill’. It created a stunning drilling power by controlling the directions of its spines. Furthermore, it increased its speed with the Power of the Heavens and Earth.
It was terrifyingly fast!
In a flash, the Six Legged Bladelike Chi had caught up with the giant silver wolf which was running at the front.
“Roar~~Roar~~” The giant silver wolf panicked, for it knew that the Six Legged Bladelike Chi was approaching. The giant silver wolf did not assume that a flying demonic beast could be so adept at burrowing. It was, without a doubt, the most terrifying flying demonic beast.
The giant silver wolf tried to return above ground.
“Roar~~” Unfortunately, the Six Legged Bladelike Chi had already caught up.
At this time, Shen Gongtu, who was unable to help the giant silver wolf because of Teng Qingshan, was so nervous that his face had gone red. “Tie Wu, go underground, quick quick!” he yelled.
It was too late!
If the giant silver wolf were to die, Shen Gongtu would hate the Blind Swordmaster.
“I have to go underground and fight?” asked the Blind Swordmaster, who was hoping to wait for the giant silver wolf to come out. He had no choice but to grit his teeth and leaped underground.
“Roar~~” a painful roar could be heard from beneath the ground.
