Chapter 125 - Six-Winged Golden Centipede
King Teng and the other Qi Pract.i.tioners remained standing at the same position, staring at the stairs leading towards the palace as their faces showed serious expressions.
One of the Qi Pract.i.tioners among them exhaled and said softly, "Thank G.o.d it was just an Awakening level seal, or the power would be even greater."
Blood dyed the stairs red and countless strange totem carvings appeared on the stairs. After a few moments, with the blood started to fade away, the totem carvings disappeared as well.
They remained standing for quite some time before King Teng suddenly moved a step forward, landing on the first step of the stairs where he remained without moving.
Then, vines appeared under his legs and they grew quickly, forming countless complicated totem carvings that stopped the operation of the totem carvings on the stairs, immobilizing them.
"King Teng is indeed powerful, he lives up to his t.i.tle of the strongest among the younger generation's Qi Pract.i.tioners in Xian Kong City."
A goat headed Qi Pract.i.tioner suddenly said, "But then King Teng, I'm afraid that you might not be able to see through all the changes in the totem carvings hidden in these hundred and eight steps with your skills, right? Everyone in this world has their own strengths, we must pool our intelligent and work together if we want to get inside as soon as possible to obtain the monster G.o.d Ming King's heritage, what do you think?"
King Teng remained silent as he looked at the next step as cold sweat started dripping down his forehead. It was indeed just like what the goat-headed Qi Pract.i.tioner has said. He managed to see through the changes of the totem carvings on the first step but the changes in the second step were completely beyond his capabilities, making it difficult for him to decipher it.
At the same time, an indistinct melodic tune of the lute could be heard again while the sky started to drizzle again. The figures of Yu Xuanji and Hu Qimei could be seen in the rain, carrying an umbrella and a lute respectively. The two young experts walked towards them in the rain before stopping in front of the stairs before them.
"So difficult! These hundred and eight stairs are even more difficult than flying up the skies!"
Yu Xuanji looked very serious and his eyesight brushed through the other Qi Pract.i.tioners as he said, "Everyone, why don't we temporarily cooperate to solve these hundred and eight stairs and compete with each other for the heritage of monster G.o.d Ming King after entering into the palace?"
A few more strong-looking Qi Pract.i.tioners walked towards them and one of them said, "Only the stronger ones would be able to detect the changes of the totem carvings on the stairs. I say now is not the time we fight with each other, rather, we should work together to get past this obstacle first!"
King Teng who was standing on the first step of the stairs suddenly said, "Alright, we work together to get past these stairs, after which, we shall decide what to do with the heritage once we get into the palace!"
"Hmmm? Long Yue is not here yet?"
Hu Qimei looked around for Zhong Yue but to no avail and something struck her as she whispered, "He is incredibly strong, there's no reason for him to be defeated or killed on his way here so how could he not be here yet?"
"The Black Mountain's secret realm is incredibly dangerous. If one is not careful, even Awakening level Qi Pract.i.tioners would die in that forest back then, not to mention Rebirth level Qi Pract.i.tioners."
Something flashed across Yu Xuanji's eyes and he replied, "Brother Long might have ended up suffering a tragic fate if he is not here yet."
The Black Mountain's secret realm was way too dangerous for them, they only managed to get to this point by exercising extreme caution, avoiding the mysterious insect race and battles. They also saw some monsters who met their sad ending when they encountered the insect race. Thus, they were all cognizant of the horror of the insect race.
In such a dangerous place, even Awakening level Qi Pract.i.tioners might lose their lives, not to mention the fact that there is not a much of a gap between Zhong Yue and their own capabilities that were clearly inferior to that of Awakening level Qi Pract.i.tioners.
Somewhere in the darkness of the jungle, a golden ray was encircling around Zhong Yue, moving as fast as lightning while it kept on clas.h.i.+ng with the Sword Qi dancing around Zhong Yue, each collision created bright sparks that intermittently lit up the darkness.
The golden ray tried to breach the perimeter of the【Fourth Sword Style】and it almost managed to make contact with Zhong Yue multiple times!
Although the【Fourth Sword Style】was incredibly strong and imperceptible, it was its first time going up against such a tenacious opponent. The main reason for this was that of the small body size of the insect race within the gold ray, which lent it the ability to escape from the the【Fourth Sword Style】's encirclement with relative ease.
The failure to trap this insect race meant that the full power of the【Fourth Sword Style】could not be unleashed!
No wonder the Sword Coc.o.o.ns sword silks was listed as eighth among the Ten Malefic Weapons. Everything has their own fortes and weaknesses - the Sword Coc.o.o.ns sword silks also have something that they wouldn't be able to contend against!
A loud sound resounded out as the golden ray harshly clashed with the Xuan Wu Gold Spirit s.h.i.+eld in front of Zhong Yue, the impact inflicting considerable damage such that it caused cracks to crawl all over the s.h.i.+eld like spider-webs. Unlike its tiny body size, the strength of this insect race was incredibly strong!
With its hundred legs, the centipede moved quickly in the air just like how the martial art grandmasters traveled in the air, with the addition of its three pairs of incredibly sharp cicada wings, its speed was incredibly fast. Other than that, under its tiny body was hidden a tremendous power that with each charge, it could inflict heavy impact that would cause a bout of dizziness onto Zhong Yue with each collision and threaten to shatter Zhong Yue's s.h.i.+eld!
So it's this little thing! Monster G.o.d Ming King!
Zhong Yue's body moved and visualized the eight-handed Ming King. At that moment, with all of the Sword Qi in his eight hands, he swung them down continuously towards the golden ray in a high-frequency barrage.
Before the golden centipede could recover from its dizziness after knocking on the Xuan Wu Gold Spirit s.h.i.+eld, Zhong Yue's attack had already rained down on the centipede like an unstoppable hurricane! Zhong Yue aimed his attack at only one spot as he kept on swinging his Sword Qi onto the back of the centipede like a rapidly-rotating propeller, creating a chain of loud noises. As the raucous symphony subsided, what was left was a centipede that was sliced in half!
Such incredible defense!
Zhong Yue exclaimed in awe. If it were any other Qi Pract.i.tioner, no matter which race they were, be it the monsters, humans or the celestial race, they would have been sliced into pieces after being hit once, not to mention the high-frequency onslaught that Zhong Yue had released on the six-winged golden centipede. However, the insect race's defense was so strong that it took Zhong Yue so much effort just to kill it!
This golden centipede was made of pure Gold Qi, just like a centipede shaped golden spirit pearl!
Zhong Yue picked up the sliced centipede and he exclaimed in awe again as he examined the body; the internal organ structure was very complicated and was laden with totem carvings, which allowed them to convert everything they consumed into pure Gold Qi in their body.
They lived up to their name as a creation of the demons! This golden centipede must still not have reached adulthood. If it was an adult golden centipede, its size would have been even bigger and more terrifying. It would've been something that was simply beyond my capabilities to handle!
As soon as Zhong Yue thought of this, he suddenly s.h.i.+vered and quickly leaped away from his position. He then quickly flew away and as he turned back to look, he saw a huge six-winged golden centipede chasing behind him, vaporizing everything in its path that came in contact with the centipede!
An adult golden centipede!
Zhong Yue skin rippled with gooseb.u.mps as the adult golden centipede gained on him, turning into a golden ray and getting ever-closer to Zhong Yue!
This is bad!
Zhong Yue kept on moving and kept on changing directions in order to shake off the golden centipede's pursuit. Cold sweat started dripping on his forehead and suddenly, even more, golden rays could be seen in front of him and loud chirping noises could be heard. Those golden rays were the heaven silkworms!
The heaven silkworms are not really big, only the size of an inch, but how many of them would there have to be in order to enshroud the entire area of a hundred mu in front of him!
Zhong Yue took a hard turn, barely missing the hundred mu of heaven silkworms as he quickly ran away. As he turned, the hundred mu of golden ray s.h.i.+ned even brighter and countless heaven silkworms chirped even louder as they maintained their relentless pursuit!
Zhong Yue glanced behind himself as he ran and all he saw was the adult centipede hot on his tail while the heaven silkworms closely followed behind it. Everything in their path was smashed into dust!
I've really stirred up the hornet nest this time … Ehh — there really is a hornet nest in front!
Zhong Yue lamented as he saw a huge hornet nest dangling from the cliff in front of him. The nest hung close to the cliff and appeared to be dark in color as it was made up of pure dark gold. Countless poisonous hornets each the size of a basin could be seen circling around their nest, occasionally showing off their stinger.
Sword Qi Splitter - Mountain Opener!
Zhong Yue bit his lips as five Sword Qi appeared and flew towards the mountain, piercing into the mountain like a drill. With his Sword Qi, he opened up a hole that allowed him to continue his advance.
However, as Zhong Yue opened up a hole in the mountain, it also drew the ire of the poisonous hornets at which point, they quickly joined the fray behind the six-winged golden centipede and the heaven silkworms. The dense insect races charged towards Zhong Yue crazily and the golden centipede was the first one that charged into the hole created by Zhong Yue. As it couldn't fly in the limited s.p.a.ce, it immediately began its frenzied charge on its innumerable legs!
I will kill you all here!
In the mountain, Zhong Yue abruptly stopped and he let out a furious shout as he merged the five Sword Qi together and cleaved his Sword Qi towards the golden centipede!
Eight armed Ming King, Might of the Xiang Dragon!
Boom boom boom - hands appeared on his body, grabbed and amalgamated the Sword Qi into a five-colored Sword Qi.
Zhong Yue's muscles vibrated with a high frequency and the Xiang dragon totem carvings appeared on his bones while the monster G.o.d Ming King totem carvings appeared on his skin With a loud and furious roar, he swung his Sword Qi towards the six-winged golden centipede!
The mountain shook vigorously and the head of the centipede was split open by Zhong Yue, causing it to let out a helpless shriek before it rolled onto the ground, shaking the mountain as it caused an avalanche of rock to fall. Then, the golden centipede spits out some poisonous golden mist but Zhong Yue repelled it by visualizing the Sui Sovereign while a round of moon and the sun emerged behind the Sui Sovereign, which let out moonlight and fire to disperse the mist and the dust!
Die die die!
Zhong Yue kept swinging his Sword Qi and with the power up of the Sui Sovereign, with the moon and the sun, he almost lost himself in his rampage, nearly losing his ability to maintain rational thought. He swung his sword swiftly and ferociously, which prompted the centipede to back off, however, it was blocked by the poisonous hornet and the heaven silkworms, barring its path of escape!
A huge sound could be heard and the head of the centipede was split open by Zhong Yue. The centipede then died in the mountain as the poisonous hornets and the heaven silkworms tried to crawl into the mountain.
The Sword Qi in the hands of Zhong Yue then split back into five and his eight hands reached towards the five Sword Qi while the other three hands launch a ferocious flurry of punches and slaps towards the incoming swarming poisonous hornets and heaven silkworms.
The mountain continued to tremble vigorously as they fought, lasting for about half an hour before it subsiding completely.
In the tunnel, Zhong Yue was covered in blood as he stood there, panting as all of his muscles cramped up, trembling vigorously. At the same time, the corpses of the poisonous hornets and heaven silkworms piled up and filled the entire tunnel, leaving not even a single inch of free s.p.a.ce.
Xin Huo then flew out from his glabella and looked blankly at the corpses in the tunnel before murmuring, "There is a spiritual pearl in every heaven silkworm and poison hornet. You are rich now… Brat Yue, if you could do it again, you will gain even more!"
Zhong Yue, however, did not say anything as he had already fainted due to exhaustion.
