Chapter 14 Pursuing the Godly Armor
The reason why the Six Legged Bladelike Chi flew toward Teng Qingshan was because he had sent it a message by using the Sound Transmission Technique. When the Six Legged Bladelike Chi heard Teng Qingshan’s voice, it naturally flew back.
“Pei San is so powerful. When he struck the Sovereign of Xiao Yao Palace on the surface of his Godly Armor, the Sovereign died immediately,” Teng Qingshan held his breath as he thought, “Now, You Shijin has been struck by Pei San’s palm. He is most likely dying, but he has two sets of Godly Armor with him!”
Just one set of Godly Armor was already enough to make the Emptiness Realm Experts fight each other. Moreover, one of the two sets of Godly Armor was the Omnipotent Armor, the Hong Tian Godly Armor. Thus, one could imagine how tempting it was.
Even Teng Qingshan was tempted.
Pei Hao and the King of Beasts went underground almost simultaneously.
“The two of them?” Teng Qingshan instantly deduced. “They must have received an order from Pei San. Pei San must have asked them to stop the Six-Eared Earth-Drilling Mouse and acquire the two sets of Godly Armor. However, Pei San did not send me any message with the use of the Sound Transmission Technique…” With this, Teng Qingshan understood that Pei San did not consider him as a member of the Heavenly God Palace.
By this time, the Six Legged Bladelike Chi had already arrived beside Teng Qingshan.
When Pei San saw this from afar, he frowned and hastily told Teng Qingshan with the use of the Sound Transmission Technique, “Huhe, You Shijin was struck by my palm. He will definitely die. Quickly chase after him. The Six-Eared Earth-Drilling Mouse is wounded as well, therefore, it is unlikely that it will drill rapidly. Ride the Six Legged Bladelike Chi, and you will definitely catch up. If you really manage to obtain the two sets of Godly Armors, you can take one, but please give one to the Heavenly God Palace. I will reward you greatly!”
While Pei San’s voice was still resonating in Teng Qingshan’s ears, Teng Qingshan had already leaped onto the back of the Six Legged Bladelike Chi.
“Bladelike Chi!” Teng Qingshan called out, pointing toward the ground.
The Six Legged Bladelike Chi rapidly tore the ground open and drilled toward the deepest area of the earth.
Pei San, Li Chao who was heavily wounded, and the God of Heaven Su Mengte stood together in the distance. The great monk, Su Mengte, turned and stared at Pei San as he asked bemusedly, “Sovereign, the Bladelike Chi must have flown back because Huhe summoned it. Huhe won’t let us pursue the Godly Armor, but he himself is pursuing it. Huhe is somewhat…”
Pei San smiled indifferently and replied, “He is a Foreign Dignitary, not a servant of the Heavenly God Palace. How can I command him? Moreover, the Six Legged Bladelike Chi is an Emptiness Realm Demonic Beast, not some beast that us humans can summon wantonly.”
That was logically correct.
However, in the eyes of the God of Heaven, Su Mengte, the Sovereign Pei San was a transcendent existence. So, what Foreign Dignitary Huhe had done made it seem like he was very unappreciative of Pei San.
“In the future, it’s fine if you two can’t befriend this Huhe. But don’t become his enemy,” Pei San instructed with the use of the Sound Transmission Technique. “The Heavenly God Palace does not fear him, but becoming enemy with him will create many troubles for the Heavenly God Palace.” As Pei San spoke, the image of the Undying Phoenix, who dwelled on the island, emerged in his mind.
Pei San was intimidated by the Mother of Phoenix. The Mother of Phoenix was too fast. If the Mother of Phoenix wished to sneakily attack or harass them, Pei San wouldn’t be able to do anything. Furthermore, in terms of power, the Mother of Phoenix was exceedingly daunting.
Pei San had no wish to go against the Mother of Phoenix just because of Huhe.
“Yes, Sovereign (Teacher).” Although Li Chao and Su Mengte were puzzled, they still obeyed.
Underground, Teng Qingshan rode on the back of the Six Legged Bladelike Chi. The Six Legged Bladelike Chi stretched its six legs, wrapping them around its body. Then as the spikes on its six legs formed into a swirling shape, the Six Legged Bladelike Chi transformed into a huge electric drill and charged forward at a terrifyingly fast speed.
“Haha… Just as I expected,” Teng Qingshan’s eyes beamed as he said to himself, “The Six-Eared Earth-Drilling Mouse’s speed is obviously not as fast as when it was in perfect condition. As a matter of fact, it is now even slower than the Six Legged Bladelike Chi.”
Within his domain, Teng Qingshan could sense the powerful aura of the Six-Eared Earth-Drilling Mouse was drilling forward at a depth of ten Li underground. A slightly smaller aura of an Emptiness Realm Expert could be detected above the powerful aura of the demonic beast. That aura probably belonged to You Shijin.
Clearly, the distance between the Six legged Bladelike Chi and the Six-Eared Earth-Drilling Mouse was shortening continuously.
“You can’t escape,” Teng Qingshan muttered as his eyes narrowed.
“Roar~~” The Six Legged Bladelike Chi emitted an excited roar. It was obviously annoyed that it had been unable to catch up with the Six-Eared Earth-Drilled Mouse previously.
The pale-looking Emptiness Realm Expert, You Shijin, lay close to the back of the Six-Eared Earth-Drilling Mouse as he held onto his brother, Zou Tianchang. “The demonic beast behind us is so fast that even the speed of the Six-Eared Earth-Drilling Mouse is slightly slower than it.”
You Shijin could distinctly sense the two auras of Emptiness Realm approaching.
He had already shaken off the King of Beasts and Pei Hao.So, now, Teng Qingshan and the Six Legged Bladelike Chi were the only ones chasing after him.
“It’s all because the Sovereign of the Heavenly God Palace wounded the Six-Eared Earth-Drilling Mouse. Otherwise, that Demonic beast would never be able to catch up,” You Shijin said extremely anxiously.
He was so anxious that he coughed up a mouthful of blood.
As You Shijin rubbed the blood off the corner of his mouth, his face became increasingly pale. “The Sovereign of the Heavenly God Palace is indeed powerful. If I hadn’t been wearing the Hong Tian Godly Armor, which is the Godly Armor that is inferior only to the Transcendent Godly Armor, but an ordinary armor instead, then that palm of his could have reached through the Godly Armor and struck me dead me straight away. However, even though I was wearing the Godly Armor, my internal organs still got injured.”
“Even if I remain passive, I only another hour to live.” You Shijin knew this clearly.
Within such a short while, the distance between Teng Qingshan and You Shijin had shortened down to just five Li.
“I have no choice,” You Shijin said through clenched teeth as he looked at his brother’s corpse in his arms. Then he muttered, “Tianchang, I am sorry.” As You Shijin spoke, sparks of flames emerged from his hands and permeated Zou Tianchang’s body. The flames, which were produced by the Fire Elemental Power of the Emptiness Realm Expert, burned, and sizzling sounds rang out as Zou Tianchang’s body was instantly rendered to dust.
All that remained was the dark green Godly Armor…
At this moment, the distance between the two parties had decreased to four Li.
You Shijin grabbed the dark green helmet and threw it forcefully. The helmet flew backward like a flying meteorite. As the helmet was enveloped by the Power of the Heavens and the Earth, the soil around it didn’t put up much resistance. Almost instantly, the helmet appeared before Teng Qingshan.
“Eh?” Teng Qingshan could distinct sense a strong Power of the Heavens and the Earth shooting toward him.
Teng Qingshan waved the Splitting Mountain Axe. Then with a “Clang” sound, the Splitting Mountain Axe blocked the helmet, and Teng Qingshan grabbed it.
“Eh? This is?” Teng Qingshan instantly deduced, “This helmet should be a piece of the set of Godly Armor which Zou Tianchang was wearing.”
“Haha… Didn’t you want the Godly Armor? Haha, take it,” You Shijin’s arrogant voice rang in Teng Qingshan’s ears. Simultaneously, another piece of the set of Godly Armor which contained the Power of the Heavens and the Earth flew toward Teng Qingshan. Once again, Teng Qingshan blocked it with the Splitting Mountain Axe.
This time, he grabbed hold of a vambrace. “A vambrace?” Teng Qingshan muttered to himself.
However, at this moment, the distance between Teng Qingshan and You Shijin had decreased to two Li.
Then yet another piece of the set of Godly Armor containing the Power of the Heavens and the Earth flew over. However, this time, it didn’t fly toward Teng Qingshan. Instead, it flew several Zhang to the side of Teng Qingshan.
“Chichi~~” The Six Legged Bladelike Chi thoughtfully turned and blocked the flying piece of Godly Armor. As Teng Qingshan held it, he saw that it was a dark green war boot.
“Just one war boot? Does he want me to wear just one?” Teng Qingshan suddenly realized something bad.
This was because—
The turn of several dozen Zhang they just made had caused an increase in the distance between Teng Qingshan and You Shijin.
Yet another piece of the set of Godly Armor, which contained the Power of the Heavens and the Earth, flew over. However, this time, the piece of Godly Armor was flying to an area two to three hundred Zhang away from Teng Qingshan. If they made that turn, the distance would increase by one Li. The Six Legged Bladelike Chi made a turn again, and Teng Qingshan didn’t stop it. This time, he acquired yet another piece of the Godly Armor.
It was a greave.
“Hmph, as expected, this You Shijin has bad intentions. None of the items he gave me are useful. A war boot, a vambrace, a greave… He is trying to prevent me from collecting the full set. Moreover, the distance between us is increasing.
“Now, I won’t be tricked.”
Teng Qingshan wasn’t worried at all.
At this moment, the distance between the two shortened to three Li and then continued to decrease.
Enveloped by the Power of the Heavens and the Earth, yet another piece of Godly Armor flew rapidly toward an area two Li away from Teng Qingshan. This time, the piece of Godly Armor landed even farther than before.
Then when Six Legged Bladelike Chi was about to make a turn again…
“Bladelike Chi,” Teng Qingshan instructed with the use of the Sound Transmission Technique and pointed out a direction at the same time.
The Six Legged Bladelike Chi immediately understood what Teng Qingshan meant. After all, the Bladelike Chi was an intelligent creature. Seeing the direction Teng Qingshan was pointing toward, the Bladelike Chi now understood that they had been tricked as well. The enemy had enticed them with the parts of the Godly Armor with the purpose of slowing them down… Once the distance between them increased until thirty-four Li, the pursuit would be difficult.
You Shijin immediately sensed that Teng Qingshan and the Six Legged Bladelike Chi had not changed their direction to grab the piece of Godly Armor. Shocked by that realization, he immediately took out the other vambrace and threw it toward an area one Li away from Teng Qingshan.
“Hmph.” Teng Qingshan ignored the flying piece of Godly Armor and continued pursuing You Shijin.
The distance between the two parties shortened to one and a half Li.
“Why? You don’t want the Godly Armor anymore?” You Shijin’s voice rang in Teng Qingshan’s ears. Simultaneously, another piece of the set of Godly Armor, which was enveloped by the Power of the Heavens and the Earth, flew several dozen Zhang to the side of Teng Qingshan. “This time, it is the internal armor.”
“Bladelike Chi.” Hearing that, Teng Qingshan hastily asked the Six Legged Bladelike Chi to make a turn.
It was just several Zhang away. The Six Legged Bladelike Chi arched toward the piece of Godly Armor, and Teng Qingshan grabbed the internal armor.
As he touched the dark green Godly Armor, he felt a sensation of coldness. The internal armor was the piece that the Emptiness Realm Experts loved to wear the most as the internal armor could be worn beneath their clothes. As Emptiness Realm Experts normally couldn’t be bothered to wear the entire set of Godly Armor, they would just wear the internal armor. After all, the internal armor was equivalent to half of a set of Godly Armor.
“The distance between us will only increase by several Zhang,” Teng Qingshan sneered. Then he said with the use of the Sound Transmission Technique, “You Shijin, I know what schemes you are playing. You can’t get rid of me.”
“You are a member of the Heavenly God Palace. I won’t give you the Godly Armor,” You Shijin bellowed furiously.
“I am not a member of the Heavenly God Palace. I didn’t even try to kill you earlier,” Teng Qingshan responded with the use of the Sound Transmission Technique.
“Don’t you dare lie to me,” You Shijin said with the use of the Sound Transmission Technique, “Your demonic beast participated in the battle earlier… You said that you didn’t participate in the fight to kill me, but that is probably because you have yet to reach the culmination of the Emptiness Realm. So, the Sovereign of the Heavenly God Palace is probably not at ease if you participate and engage in the battle,” You Shijin replied with the use of the Sound Transmission Technique and simultaneously spat out another mouthful of blood.
Through the way You Shijin talked, Teng Qingshan could sense that You Shijin was not in a good condition. It seemed like he was heavily wounded.
“You Shijin, I would advise that you stop running. You are not far from death. Stop struggling,” Teng Qingshan said with the use of the Sound Transmission Technique.
At this moment, the distance between the two parties decreased to half a Li!
