  • Chapter 73 Breaking the Venomous Snakes Formation


    Hiss! Hiss!

    The strange hissing sounds were getting nearer and everyone felt chills in their spines as they heard it.

    "what is it exactly?"

    Yiqian could not help but ask after failing to identify the source of the sounds.

    Nobody could give her an answer, and the sounds only grew louder, indicating that something was approaching in large numbers.

    "Ah, they are venomous snakes!"

    A spotted venomous snake suddenly sprang from the bushes and attacked Yiqian. With a cry of surprise, she cut down the snake with her sword.

    Instead of relief, she only felt despair. This was because she realized that an incredibly large number of venomous snakes were approaching them from all directions.

    All these snakes possessed deadly venom, and if non-experts get bitten, they would die in an instant.

    Even third-rate experts would not last more than a day from the poison.

    At the sight of the snakes, Yiqian was greatly frightened and she swung her sword wildly.

    "My god, there's so many of these snakes, could it the doing of Five Poisons Cult?" Yun Taizi cried out with an unsightly expression.

    "It's not them, it should be Mount White Camel Villa!" Lin Yi spoke in a low voice with a serious expression and pointed to the snakes around them: "These snakes possess extremely potent venom, but they all move in a fixed pattern instead of moving about randomly. As a result, all our routes of escape have been cut off!"

    "The Venomous Snakes Formation from Mount White Camel Villa!"

    "This, this is disgusting!" Yiqian felt nauseous from the sheer amount of venomous snakes crawling all over the place.

    "I rather engage in battles of life and death with the demonic cult disciples than to deal with these snakes!" Lu Buping's face was also full of bitterness.

    They all had similar thoughts.

    Although their sword arts were powerful and they could kill these snakes easily, but how could they possibly deal with thousands of such snakes at once?

    Even if they did somehow manage to kill all of them, they would surely be completely exhausted by then. When that happened, they could only wait for the demonic cult disciples to take their heads.

    "These people from Mount White Camel Villa are too despicable, they are trying to trap us here until we die. Either we succumb to the poison or we get killed by them after we're exhausted!"

    "I wonder which scoundrel from Mount White Camel Villa has managed to raise so many venomous snakes!"

    Lin Yi's companions could only curse loudly in despair as they felt death approaching them. They were unable to think of any countermeasures.

    If they hadn't been surrounded, they could still run away. But right now, such a course of action was no longer possible as they were completely surrounded.

    Lin Yi also remained silent.

    ......

    Some distance away from the oasis, Ouyang Jue was playing a strange musical instrument. The melody was not pleasing to the ears at all, and it could even be described as noisy.

    However, what was amazing was that when the venomous snakes heard the noise from the instrument, they started standing upright and danced along to the music. Following that, they slipped into the oasis.

    Beside Ouyang Jue, dozens of snake servants from Mount White Camel Villa were holding nearly a hundred large white sacks open, and venomous snakes emerged from these sacks.

    After all the snakes had been released and had entered the oasis, Ouyang Jue stopped playing the instrument and looked towards the oasis with cold eyes.

    "My lord, the snakes have all been released." A snake servant politely reported.

    Ouyang Jue nodded and smiled coldly as he continued looking towards the oasis. "Five Mountain Sword Sects, Huashan's Deadly Celestial Sword, what a great reputation. All of you actually managed to escape from nearly a thousand people chasing you, what ferocity!"

    "Heh, today I want to see how you deal with my Venomous Snakes Formation!"

    Ouyang Jue had great confidence in his formation.

    In comparison to Five Poisons Cult which raised all kinds of poisonous living things, Mount White Camel Villa only focused on venomous snakes, developing the ability to use these snakes to their fullest potential.

    Venomous Snakes Formation was a superior secret art developed by Mount White Camel Villa to control large numbers of venomous snakes at once, and these snakes were painstakingly raised by Ouyang Jue.

    This was why although he was only a third-rate expert, his ability to control snakes was extremely potent, and other third-rate experts greatly feared him.

    Who wouldn't fear getting surrounded by thousands of deadly venomous snakes?

    ......

    "Kill!"

    Lin Yi and his companions swung their swords with all their effort and cut down snake after snake.

    However, they could not see the snakes getting lesser, as more and more snakes surged forward to take the place of those killed.

    "This won't do, we will be dead from exhaustion before we finish killing the snakes!" Lin Yi shook his head.

    "Senior Brother Lin Yi, what should we do then? Should we try to clear a path and charge our way out?" Yiqian asked.

    As Lin Yi looked at the five horses which had died to the venom, he shook his head at the suggestion.

    So what if they managed to get after expending all their effort and strength? The people from Mount White Camel Villa were probably waiting in ambush outside. It was no different from voluntarily walking into a trap.

    Lin Yi surveyed the dense vegetation surrounding them. Due to the presence of a water source in this oasis, the plants were able to grow thickly in this location.

    Suddenly, he thought of an idea.

    "Cut down all the plants surrounding us and empty out a small area!" Lin Yi ordered in a loud voice.

    Although his companions were puzzled, they did not hesitate at carrying out his orders. Very soon, the area around them was completely cleared of vegetation.

    After spending days with Lin Yi, they now had complete trust in him, unconditionally following his orders. During the last three days, Senior Brother Lin Yi had repeatedly brought them out of dangerous situations, so it was not strange for them to trust him so much.

    As they looked at Lin Yi with a puzzled expression, he retrieved a piece of flint from his baggage and threw it into a heap of dry grass.

    Slashing at the heap with his sword, sparks flew. Soon, smoke emerged from the heap and a small fire started to burn.

    In just a short while, the small fire turned into a wildfire.

    "Fire attack!"

    The four of them finally understood his plan.

    "Haha, Senior Brother Lin Yi is truly smart to think of this method to deal with the snakes!"

    At this moment, they were glad that they set up camp in this oasis. If they were located in the middle of the desert, a fire attack wouldn't even be possible.

    Soon, all the vegetation were enveloped in blazing flames several meters tall, and the fire started spreading outwards rapidly, consuming the entire oasis.

    The venomous snakes were unable to escape the flames and were roasted alive, spreading a fragrance of cooked snake meat.

    "Smells good!"

    "Haha, now we get to eat snake meat!"

    "The people from Mount White Camel Villa are so good to us. They know that we haven't had a good meal for days and gifted us with so much snake meat!"

    "The meat of venomous snakes are the most delicious!"

    "Don't waste any of it, let's eat it quickly!"

    As the snakes burned to death around them, the four of them engaged in banter. Maybe they were truly sick of eating rations, and they all used their swords as skewers and started roasting the dead snakes. They even took out the salt and other seasonings that Lin Yi had brought along and used them in the cooking.

    Very soon, they were happily devouring the snake meat, and even Yiqian couldn't stop herself from eating one after another of these snakes.

    ......

    "Ahh, my snakes!"

    Watching the huge flames consuming the snakes, in an instant, the majority of the snakes were burned alive. As he saw his precious snakes die in large quantities to the raging fire, Ouyang Jue nearly vomited blood from the pain.

    "Hurry, hurry up!"

    "Retrieve the snakes!"

    Yelling at the snake servants, he urged them to collect the snakes. The snake servants anxiously opened the white sacks to let the snakes back in.

    Unfortunately, the fire was too strong, and most of the snakes died to the flames before they could react.

    Ouyang Jue was consumed by rage and he cursed loudly: "Deadly Celestial Sword, I will definitely kill you!"

    Just as he finished saying that, he saw five people wearing heavy armor charging out of the burning oasis.

    Their leader even stared coldly at him before swiftly taking out a violet great bow and shooting a violet arrow right at him.

    A high-pitched sound was produced as the arrow pierced through the air with incredible speed!

    Ouyang Jue was shocked and immediately started retreating.

    Seeing that he could not dodge the arrow, Ouyang Jue grabbed hold of a snake servant beside him and used the servant's body as a meat shield.

    Boom!

    The servant's body exploded as a huge hole was created!

    How could an arrow be so terrifying!

    Ouyang Jue broke out in cold sweat, his face full of fear.

    The force of the arrow had even partially transferred to his hand holding the servant, causing him great pain and injury as the blood flowed from the injury and painted his hand blood-red.

    "You don't have to kill me, because I will kill you!"

    "Demonic scum from Mount White Camel Villa!"

    The person who shot the arrow took off his helmet and revealed the face of a youth.

    He was very young, but his eyes were filled with coldness and killing intent.

    "You are Lin Yi, Deadly Celestial Sword!" Ouyang Jue trembled in fear as he recognized the youth.
  • ty for the chapter bro :)
  • Well....I guess that is one way to get dinner.
    Thanks for the Chapter
  • Thanks for the chapter!
  • Wanted to make a little short form narrative game of if this but when I went back through the first 11 chapters I noticed the author fails at math lol
  • Chapter 74 An Arrow to the Enemy


    Hanging Longmang Bow on his back, Lin Yi removed his heavy armor and drew his sword. Pointing his sword at Ouyang Jue, the blade shone with a chilling glitter.

    A chill ran down Ouyang Jue's spine as his hairs stood on end. Having handled venomous snakes all the time, he felt as if he was being targeted by one right now when the tip of Qingfeng Sword pointed at him.

    First, it was an arrow which took him by surprise, now it was a sword pointing at him. This was the killer of Blood Raiment Prince, Deadly Celestial Sword, and his sword art was even more powerful than his archery skills!

    Now that his trump card, the Venomous Snakes Formation had been destroyed, he no longer had any intention to fight on and thoughts of retreating arose in his heart.

    Cunning devils like him were adept at reading the situation. With his Venomous Snakes Formation, he did not fear anyone, not even second-rate experts. But now, all he had left was his Divine Serpent Staff Art and his lightness art, Thousand Li in an Instant. Was Divine Serpent Staff Art capable of winning Deadly Chain of Three Celestial Swords? He had no idea.

    Without waiting for him to think of a solution, Lin Yi leaped forward with great speed and attacked.

    Ouyang Jue raised his Serpent Staff and blocked his attack. Hidden within his staff was a tiny venomous snake, his final trump card. Whether it would have any effect, he was not able to tell either.

    Dang!

    The sword was blocked. For now, it was an even match.

    But Ouyang Jue started feeling despair.

    Lin Yi's sword was extremely fast, vicious and unpredictable, and every move was capable of taking his life. There were also countless variations contained within his moves. Didn't they say that Deadly Chain of Three Celestial Swords only had three moves? Ouyang Jue cursed in his heart at the rumors he heard regarding this sword art.

    This Lin Yi from Huashan had used much more than just three moves, it had already surpassed thirty moves!

    Every move possessed the incredible power of Deadly Chain of Three Celestial Swords and was difficult to deal with, forcing Ouyang Jue to expend great effort and energy to evade them.

    After dozens of moves, Ouyang Jue was sweating profusely and started feeling dizzy. But up til now, Lin Yi had not even used the same move twice! As the fight went on, the despair in Ouyang Jue's heart grew. This Deadly Chain of Three Celestial Swords was the most powerful sword art he had ever encountered in his entire life. Even though he had met quite a few second-rate experts, none of them possessed such powerful skills.

    This sword art was not only capable of striking at the most peculiar spots, it was also capable of striking at ordinary positions in an overbearing fashion, forcing Ouyang Jue to block these attacks head-on instead of dodging.

    After barely surviving a hundred moves, Ouyang Jue could only think of retreating. With his current level of skill in Divine Serpent Staff Art, he was not a match for Lin Yi. Even though it was also a superior martial art and had a hidden trump card, there was no chance to use it at all. Lin Yi attacked extremely fast and there were no breaks in between his moves, constantly shifting his position to strike at different spots. It was the first time Ouyang Jue had encountered someone who was so highly experienced at fighting.

    Taking a glance at his side, he saw the other four companions of Lin Yi wearing heavy armor and madly slaughtering the snake servants. Despite being third-rate experts, the snake servants were completely unable to fight back as each of these disciples from Five Mountain Sword Sects wielded powerful superior sword arts and were filled with killing intent.

    It was not strange for the sword arts from Songshan, Southern Hengshan and Taishan to be filled with killing intent as they were offensive sword arts. But even the defensive sword art of the little nun seemed full of killing intent to Ouyang Jue. Blossoming like numerous flowers in bloom, countless deadly moves seemed to be hidden within. In an instant, the snake servants were killed.

    The four disciples cut down the servants like chopping vegetables and their numbers dwindled rapidly, shocking Ouyang Jue greatly. He could no longer hold back anymore and he abruptly activated the hidden mechanism in his staff. A tiny snake resembling a string flew out from the mouth of the staff, heading straight for Lin Yi's face. Then, without bothering to verify the outcome, Ouyang started utilizing his superior lightness art: Thousand Li in an Instant. With a single stride, he was able to cover a distance of dozens of meters.

    Having anticipated this move from Ouyang Jue, Lin Yi reacted instantly. With a careful aim, he slashed the tiny snake into half and looked towards Ouyang Jue with cold eyes. Seeing that he was able to travel dozens of meters in a single stride, Lin Yi secretly marveled at the superior lightness art of Mount White Camel Villa.

    With Lin Yi's Huashan Movement Art, there was no way he could ever catch up with Ouyang Jue. But he had no worries. With a cold laugh, he once again took out Longmang Bow and placed a violet arrow on it. Those who dared to show their backs to him had never once met with a good ending!

    Channeling his internal strength, he pulled the bowstring fully! The violet arrow glistened with a shiny luster and was filled with the power of destruction, resembling a dragon that was poised to strike.

    Aiming at Ouyang Jue's back, he finally released his hand.

    Shoong!

    A high-pitched sound could be heard as the violet arrow pierced through the air, bringing with it great destructive power and heading straight towards Ouyang Jue's back!

    Hearing the sound and realizing that an arrow was flying towards himself at great speed, Ouyang Jue's expression changed drastically as he attempted to change his direction.

    Boom!

    Just as he leaped into the air, the violet arrow hit him with a loud boom, taking him down from midair. Ouyang Jue plummeted to the ground with a crash.

    Seeing that the arrow had connected, Lin Yi smiled coldly and leaped towards Ouyang Jue. After several strides, Lin Yi reached his enemy. There was a large hole blasted through Ouyang Jue's chest, and the blood painted his body red. As he looked at Ouyang Jue, Lin Yi was surprised. He was actually still alive?

    He was well aware of the sheer amount of power contained in the arrow. Even a genius who was a second-rate expert would find it hard to defend against, and ordinary second-rate experts would not even stand a chance of surviving the shot.

    Ouyang Jue's face was terror-stricken and his eyes were fearful. At the sight of Lin Yi, his expression changed into a pleading look. Having his chest penetrated, he no longer had the strength to speak, and he could only convey his thoughts through his eyes.

    Begging for his life pathetically, not an ounce of pride as someone from Mount White Camel Villa was left.

    Lin Yi shook his head as he drew his sword and aimed it at Ouyang Jue's head.

    "Although you are pitiful indeed, and I do pity you, but..."

    "You must die!"

    Ignoring the pleading expression in his eyes, Lin Yi swung his sword and cut off his head.


    System notification:

    Killed the genius disciple of Mount White Camel Villa, 10,000 battle experience awarded.

    Quest reward:

    Killing Ouyang Jue of Mount White Camel Villa, shocking the demonic cults, acquiring great fame and boosting the reputation of Deadly Celestial Sword. 30,000 battle experience awarded.


    Having earned 40,000 battle experience, Lin Yi sheathed his sword. Although this amount of experience was not much compared to the 400,000 experience required to clear the fourth standard meridian, it was better than nothing. Overall, Lin Yi was still happy about it.

    The power of perfection stage Deadly Chain of Three Celestial Swords was starting to show itself. After trying it out in this battle, Lin Yi was very pleased with the results. He was no longer restricted to just three moves, enhancing his fighting ability greatly.

    Usually, those who could reach the perfection stage of superior martial arts were first-rate experts. Only these people had the time to delve into their martial arts and make further improvements as they usually would have trouble upgrading their internal arts at this stage.

    The other kind of people were the geniuses who possessed an extraordinarily high level of understanding in martial arts. This kind of people could upgrade both their internal arts and martial arts at the same time. Otherwise, very few people could reach the perfection stage of superior martial arts when they were only third-rate experts.

    Right now, Lin Yi had surpassed the ability of major sect talents who were third-rate experts. One's ability could no longer be determined by the number of superior martial arts one had learned. Since superior martial arts at perfection stage contained countless variations, it could be considered as having learned countless superior martial arts.

    Furthermore, the majority of people were unable to reach the second stage of perfection stage as it was incredibly difficult to comprehend. It was a different matter for Lin Yi as he possessed the rich fighting experience and understanding of martial arts as a peak expert in his previous life.

    "Senior Brother Lin Yi, your sword art is so powerful!"

    "Senior Brother Lin Yi, how do you practice your sword art?"

    "Senior Brother Lin Yi's sword art is practically invincible!"

    "Senior Brother Lin Yi is probably capable of claiming the top rank among our generation of disciples from Five Mountain Sword Sects!"

    After the four of them had killed off most of the snake servants, they rushed to Lin Yi's side. During Lin Yi's battle with Ouyang Jue, they had witnessed the power of Lin Yi's sword art with their own eyes. It was so incredible that they could not help but praise Lin Yi in amazement, not that they were particularly trying to fawn on him. It was because they had never seen anything like it among other fellow disciples. Lin Yi just smiled without responding to their praise.

    After taking a look at his surroundings, Lin Yi frowned. "Now that our horses are dead and some of the snake servants have escaped, the news of Ouyang Jue's death at my hands will soon reach the ears of the other demonic cult disciples. When that happens, the large numbers of people chasing us will arrive at this location."

    "We need to leave this place at once!"

    His four companions nodded with bitter expressions and cursed: "Without horses, we can only walk using our legs. These damn demonic scum from Mount White Camel Villa!"

    Lin Yi did not have any solution to this problem either and simply started moving off. The rest of them hurriedly followed behind.

    ......

    Deep within the desert on top of a sand dune, Ao Wufa looked at the exhausted disciples from the righteous faction who were in a pathetic state. Revealing a cold smile, he glanced at the middle-aged man beside him and said: "Elder Xu, it's time for you to take action."
  • Chapter 75 Raging Flames of the Devil


    "Keke, rest assured, subordinate will finish off every last one of these righteous sect talents!" Old Demon Xu laughed in a peculiar manner as he stared at the righteous faction camp with a cruel expression.

    Ao Wufa took one deep look at him.

    Old Demon Xu had joined the Ming Cult after he had escaped from the hunting of the major sects for the mass murders he committed. While in Ming Cult, he learned the skills of Eagle Claws Dragon King: Eagle Claws Art!

    After training in seclusion for years, he had now greatly surpassed his former strength. Back then, he was already formidable despite only possessing silver grade martial arts. Now that he had mastered the famous superior martial art Eagle Claws Art, how strong would he be? Ao Wufa could not wait to find out.

    Nodding his head, Ao Wufa ordered the men beside him: "Begin!"

    Right now, it was late at night, and the righteous faction camp was brightly lit. Numerous dark figures approached the camp before letting loose a hail of arrows. Each of these arrows had been lit, becoming fire arrows! Thousands of fire arrows descended onto the camp like meteors, crashing down and burning the place. In an instant, the entire camp turned into a sea of fire. Terrible cries and loud cursing could be heard everywhere.

    "Those damn demonic scum are raiding us again!"

    "When are they going to stop this? It has been like this every night for days!"

    "Damn demonic scum, better not let me catch you, or I will teach you a good lesson!"

    "So disgusting and despicable, they are not intending to let us sleep at all!"

    The entire camp was filled with cries of resentment. Their hatred towards the demonic cult disciples had reached the peak!

    For many consecutive days, they had been attacked by a barrage of arrows during the night. Whenever they reacted to the attack and charged out of the camp, the demonic cult disciples would swiftly retreat, disappearing from their sight in the blink of an eye. Just when they returned to the camp and was about to take a rest, the demonic cult disciples would appear again to release another barrage of arrows.

    Besides this, they also resorted to all kinds of dirty tricks and methods to harass the camp. Setting fire, releasing poisonous animals like snakes, scorpions and bugs, and even poison gas!

    The people in the camp were full of bitter resentment as they also suffered significant casualties. As a result, most of them lost their fighting spirit and enthusiasm for exterminating evil.

    This camp was originally composed of all sorts of people from numerous places. Major sects, minor sects, and lone practitioners. Therefore, there was little discipline among the group, and they resembled a pile of loose sand. Every day there were people who left the camp and morale was low. They were only able to fight back due to their deep resentment.

    As the people of the righteous faction took up arms and charged out of the camp, they thought that the demonic cult disciples would once again retreat rapidly. Instead, they were stupefied by what they saw.

    Standing behind the archers were large numbers of demonic cult members, and the majority of them belonged to the giant of the demonic cults, Ming Cult!

    There was an archer team, an incendiary team, and the heavy infantry with huge sabers.

    Even more frightening was the heavy cavalry!

    A thousand cavalries where both rider and horse were wrapped tightly in heavy armor, resembling a forest of steel. Their sabers glinted with a cold light as they looked coldly at the people from the righteous faction.

    They had appeared out of nowhere like ghosts, and now they began to charge forward.

    Rumble! Rumble! Rumble!

    As the warhorses galloped with great speed, loud rumbling sounds were produced.

    "Oh my god!"

    At the sight of a thousand heavy cavalries charging towards them, countless people were shocked and could only retreat in fear. But it was too late.

    The cavalries had reached them with their sabers in a horizontal position. With the momentum produced by the ferocious charge, they did not even need to make any slashing or chopping movements. By simply placing their sabers in front of them, the people from the righteous factions were cut into halves as the cavalry ran past them.

    In the blink of an eye, hundreds were cut down.

    Fire arrows rained down once more.

    The incendiary team raised their weapons and spat out huge flames resembling dragons. All those caught in the flames were burned to a crisp.

    The forces of the righteous faction were crumbling rapidly!

    This time, the demonic cult disciples had gone to great lengths to prepare for this attack. Even the specialized forces from Ming Cult and a thousand heavy cavalry were here!

    How was this a battle between geniuses? It was a war between the factions!

    The forces from the demonic faction were well-trained and disciplined, fully displaying the might of Ming Cult! The only thing that could stand a chance against them were the specialized fighting forces of the major sects in Shenzhou, such as the Shaolin Bronzemen Array and the Wudang Taiji Array!

    ......

    Countless people of the righteous faction cried out in fear as they fled for their lives.

    Fortunately, they still had their lightness arts. The power of the heavy cavalry was the element of surprise as well as their ability to charge into large crowds. All they needed to do was to leave the crowd and rely on their lightness arts to escape.

    Even then, this attack had claimed heavy casualties! A proper counterattack was no longer possible.

    Deep within the camp, the major sect disciples led by Shaolin looked at each other silently when they saw the heavy cavalry, then they started to make their escape as fast as they could!

    Abandoning the people in the camp, they started utilizing their lightness arts. Resembling large birds, they leaped into the air from the ground and covered dozens of meters in a single stride, heading towards the sand dunes.

    They were not so stupid to think that escape from the cavalry was possible on the flat ground. The only way was to head for higher ground.

    With the weight of the heavy armor covering them entirely, how fast could the warhorses run? The horses would run out of strength after charging for ten li at best.

    There was still a chance to make a comeback if they managed to escape!

    At least Monk Jueyuan thought so. As long as there were hundreds of major sect disciples following behind him, he had no reason to fear the demonic cult disciples. He even thought of leading them to carry out a counterattack after escaping these heavy cavalries and achieve victory once more.

    At this moment, the battle cries of the enemies could be heard from the front. Hundreds of demonic cult disciples had been waiting here all along to seal their routes of escape.

    With a change of his expression, Monk Jueyuan roared: "Kill!"

    Leading the way, he leaped towards his enemies and brandished his Dragon Claw Hands, madly slaughtering anyone who got in his way.

    Dragon Claw Hands was indeed worthy of being one of the Shaolin 72 Consummate Skills!

    Even the demonic cult geniuses were unable to defend against the might of Monk Jueyuan.

    "Master Jueyuan is so formidable!"

    "Great skills, Master Jueyuan!"

    The people behind him broke out in praise and their morale was boosted by the sight of Monk Jueyuan's prowess and ferocity. Each of them began to fight back diligently with the skills they had.

    They even managed to gain the upper hand temporarily!

    The major sect disciples of the righteous faction were indeed slightly stronger than those of the demonic faction.

    At some distance away, Ao Wufa watched the battle unfold silently. He snorted coldly but did not feel any concern at the situation. As he saw the righteous faction crumbling and the people scrambling to make their escape, he laughed: "The outcome has been decided!"

    He was assured of victory!

    Just as Monk Jueyuan was leading the major disciples at killing their enemies vigorously, they heard a strange voice.

    "Keke, there are so many little rascals from the righteous faction here, someone's gonna have human hearts to eat today!"

    The voice was eerie and horrifying.

    From not far away, a figure approached them like the wind.

    An incredible speed!

    Only an afterimage was left behind.

    "Ahh!"

    A terrible cry was heard as a disciple from Golden Saber Wang Clan was snatched by the figure's hands.

    His hands were like claws of steel, incredibly sharp!

    Piercing through the chest of the disciple, his still-beating heart was ripped out. The body of the disciple then went limp, and the figure tossed it aside like garbage.

    His eyes which were sharp like knives then locked onto the beating heart. Sticking his tongue out, he licked the heart. With great relish, he squinted his eyes: "Live human hearts are the most delicious!" Then he proceeded to take a bite out of the heart and started eating it!

    "Ah!"

    All the major sect disciples were terrified by what they just saw.

    "He...he is Old Demon Xu!"

    "The notorious Old Demon Xu who massacred numerous sects and clans!"

    One of the disciples recognized the identity of this figure.

    At these words, the figure lifted his face and revealed an expression filled with bloodthirst and mad killing intent.

    "Keke, to think that someone would still be able to recognize me?"

    Monk Jueyuan stepped forward and shouted in anger: "Demonic cult members deserve to be killed no matter where they are, everyone, let's kill this devil together!"

    "Master Jueyuan is right, killing this devil is a great thing to do for our righteous faction!" Murong Yun of Gusu's Murong Clan called out with an air of righteousness.

    "Kill this devil and deliver justice for heaven!" A Quanzhen Sect disciple added.

    The disciples of various sects stood out in response as well.

    "Keke, all of you are so brave, I wonder if your hearts will taste even better?" With a peculiar laugh, Old Demon Xu stuck out his tongue and brandished his hands which resembled eagle claws.

    With a blur of his figure, he attacked!

    "Kill!"

    Monk Jueyuan roared and attacked Old Demon Xu with his Dragon Claw Hands.

    Peng!

    As the two pairs of hands collided, Monk Jueyuan only felt a tremendous force approaching him, and in an instant, a large piece of flesh was ripped from his arms. His entire body flew backward before crashing onto the ground and he spat out a large mouthful of blood.

    Monk Jueyuan was shocked. He was not a match for Old Demon Xu at all!

    If there had not been others by his side, Old Demon Xu would have easily taken his life by taking one more step forward to attack him.

    As he imagined his heart being ripped out by Old Demon Xu and watching his own heart being devoured in front of him, Monk Jueyuan was filled with fear.

    There was no way he could win, he could only run!

    At the same time that he made this decision, he saw Murong Yun die in an instant from his heart being ripped out before he even had the chance to fight back!

    Following that, the disciples from Quanzhen, Dali's Duan clan, Beggar Sect...

    One by one, They were all killed in the same manner.

    Even several Shaolin disciples who followed him were killed!

    The flames of this devil were raging!

    "Kill, kill this devil!"

    Monk Jueyuan shouted loudly as he constantly backed away from Old Demon Xu before finally turning to escape as fast as he could.

    "Master Jueyuan, wait for me!"

    Once the others saw him fleeing for his life, they lost all their fighting spirit and began to run madly as well, following Monk Jueyuan in taking flight.

    The power of the devil envelops the world in flames!

  • Chapter 76 Yan Bei of Swallow Fortress


    Yan Bei was a member of the Swallow Fortress' Yan Clan. At the age of 25, he managed to acquire internal arts and surpassed the younger generation of the clan, becoming the youngest third-rate expert in Yan Clan and was considered the top talent in his clan. After becoming a third-rate expert, he left the fortress with great confidence in his abilities and began to roam in Jianghu.

    Several months later, he realized that while becoming a third-rate expert at the age of 25 might have been a great achievement in Yan Clan, it was no big deal at all in Jianghu. Plenty of people were stronger and younger than him. There were also numerous major sect disciples who managed to become third-rate experts at the age of 15 or 16.

    After learning the truth, he deeply understood that although Swallow Fortress ruled the area surrounding it, it could only be considered a minor sect in Jianghu! He had attempted to justify and defend the honor of his clan, as he was unable to accept the truth that the Yan clan which he was so proud of had such a lowly status in Jianghu. Alas, facts were facts, and there was nothing he could do about it!

    Silently accepting the truth, he made a vow in his heart. He was going to do his best to learn martial arts and become a first-rate expert. Then he was going to expand and grow the Yan Clan so that everyone in Jianghu would no longer be able to look down on his clan.

    Receiving information about the place called Lanzhou City, he learned that this was a wondrous place where the top talents from both factions often clashed. It was here that one could experience battles of life and death, and from these battles, increase one's strength rapidly. Therefore, he decided to head for Lanzhou City to improve himself.

    Acquiring a horse, he traveled thousands of li before reaching Lanzhou City several months later. Although he had experienced countless hardships along the way, he managed to make it.

    Arriving at Lanzhou City, he was filled with emotions. Fortunately, not long after he arrived, he heard that large numbers of demonic cult disciples were attacking the righteous faction. Such events occurred frequently, and it was always one of the two factions stirring up trouble for the other.

    Yan Bei did not care about all these matters. He only knew that he now had plenty of chances to engage in battles of life and death with demonic cult disciples. Although he was extremely excited, he did not set off immediately. Having roamed about Jianghu for more than a year, he was well aware that making a move too early was dangerous. It was easy to fall into a trap devised by the demonic faction.

    It was much safer to follow behind a large force. Although he wouldn't be able to get the meat in this way, he could still manage to get some soup. Besides, he wasn't here to exterminate evil and make a name for himself. His only aim was to hone his abilities by taking part in battles of life and death.

    Once the major sect disciples had led large forces and set off, he slowly followed behind, heading in the direction of the Western Region. Although the demonic cult disciples were bound to be overrun by the large forces, he believed that there was bound to be some who managed to escape. His judgment was correct, and he found one of these escapees with great luck.

    After a great battle, he expended most of his energy and strength before finally managing to kill the demonic cult disciple. Once he digested the experience that he gained from the battle, he felt that he had improved greatly and was filled with joy.

    Those old hands of Jianghu were right. One could only grow rapidly by constantly experiencing battles of life and death. After getting a taste of it, Yan Bei started searching for targets with even more enthusiasm. Within a few days, he managed to find a few more demonic cult disciples to do battle with.

    He could feel himself improving after every battle as his fighting techniques became more and more polished. Eliminating excessive movements, each technique was now capable of killing. He also became better at dodging and his movement speed increased. He was very satisfied with his progress.

    With excitement and anticipation, he delved deeper into the Western Region. Finally, he encountered an enemy who was stronger than him. It was a demonic cult disciple who was from a minor sect just like him. However, he was highly experienced in fighting, and Yan Bei was unable to deal with him.

    Similarly using a saber, his moves were sharp, vicious and extremely fast! Although the moves were simple, they contained great power. Yan Bei was incredibly pressured and he lost the vantage at the start of the battle.

    After dozens of moves, Yan Bei started to feel a lack of strength and the inability to keep up with his opponent's speed. The enemy's saber also started landing hits on his body. Fortunately, due to his improvements in movement arts, he was able to avoid major injuries. Still, the situation was getting worse, and he felt that he was going to lose his life after another hundred moves.

    He started feeling regret for using such a risky method to improve himself. As a result, he was going to die before he could become a first-rate expert and achieve his dream of expanding his clan.

    Feeling despair in his heart, his movements grew sluggish. After suffering several more cuts, his saber was knocked out of his hand and his opponent kicked him to the ground before leaping into the air and chopping towards his head. Yan Bei secretly sighed: "My life ends here!"

    Just when he was going to close his eyes to await the arrival of the final moment, he was astounded by an arrow which appeared with great speed. The demonic cult disciple which was going to deliver the final blow was hit by the arrow and a large hole was blasted in his body. He then flew backward several meters before crashing onto the ground. The enemy had been killed by an arrow!

    "Killed just like that?"

    Yan Bei could not believe his eyes. Such a powerful and experienced demonic cult disciple who nearly killed him was vanquished by a mere arrow? How strong was the one who shot the arrow?

    Just as he fell into a daze, a youth in white holding a violet great bow and carrying a sword on his back approached him. This youth in white was apparently the person who shot the arrow.

    "So young?"

    The age of this youth greatly shocked Yan Bei. Achieving such great power at such a young age?

    Before he could recover from his shock, four more figures emerged from behind the youth. They were all wearing heavy armor and holding their helmets in their hands. Among them, there was a nun who was even younger than the youth! The other three people were slightly older, but also only about twenty years old.

    "Who are these people?"

    Yan Bei was rendered speechless at the sight of them. He always heard others talking about how young the major sect geniuses were. Now he could finally see them with his own eyes. He was still practicing Basic Saber Art at the age of 15 or 16, and the concept of internal arts was not even in his mind then.

    "Are you alright?"

    The youth in white who was apparently the leader of the group smiled at him and offered a hand. Although his face looked young, his behavior was incredibly mature, and he exuded an extraordinary aura.

    Yan Bei shook his head repeatedly and got up from the ground by himself.

    "No, no, you don't have to help me, I can get up on my own. I'm very grateful to you for saving my life!"

    "I am Yan Bei from Swallow Fortress' Yan Clan, may I know who are you?"

    Yan Bei stated his identity with a face full of gratitude.

    "Lin Yi of Huashan."

    Yan Bei fell into shock once more as he pointed at the youth and stammered: "You...you are the famed Deadly Celestial Sword of Huashan?!"

    Lin Yi smiled and nodded.

    "To think that I have been saved by the great Deadly Celestial Sword!" Yan Bei could not contain his excitement. He heard that Deadly Celestial Sword had fought ten similarly classed experts by himself and killed them all. Seven of the ten were even the infamous Black-Robed Seven from Sun Moon Holy Cult. Yan Bei had been greatly awed by this feat and he treated Deadly Celestial Sword as his idol. To think that he would meet his idol right now.

    "The four of them are?" Yan Bei looked at the other four people as he made a guess in his mind.

    "Northern Hengshan's Yiqian!"

    "Songshan's Lu Buping!"

    "Taishan's Yun Taizi!"

    "Southern Hengshan's Mo Yu!"

    Yan Bei's suspicions were confirmed once he heard their names.

    "So all of you are from the Five Mountain Sword Sects, Yan Bei greets all of you young heroes and heroines!" Yan Bei hurriedly bowed.

    "Young Hero Yan, you don't have to stand on ceremony." Lin Yi smiled as he shook his head. Then he surveyed the surroundings and discussed with the four others from time to time. Yan Bei did not dare to eavesdrop on their conversation and only scrutinized the five of them secretly. He discovered that besides Lin Yi who was wearing a white garb and free from injuries, the other four of them were wearing heavy armor that was covered in cuts and blackened bloodstains.

    The five of them emanated killing intent and ferocity as they talked, and it was apparent that they had just experienced a great battle. Yan Bei could not even imagine the extent of the battle. Thinking of the arrow which killed his opponent, Yan Bei sighed secretly: "As expected of disciples from Five Mountain Sword Sects, the abilities of major sect geniuses aren't something that I, Yan Bei, can be compared to."

    At this moment, the five of them seemed to have finished deciding their next destination. Yan Bei decided to bid them goodbye as he did not dare to become a burden for the five of them.

    Just as he was about to speak, a series of terrible cries could be heard from far away. The sounds were approaching them at great speed. As he turned to look, he saw a monk who was apparently a Shaolin disciple, followed by a Quanzhen disciple behind. The two of them were filled with terror and they seemed to be fleeing madly from something horrifying.

    "Eh? Isn't that Jueyuan the bald donkey?" Yiqian pointed at the monk and called out.

    "It seems that they are running away?" Lin Yi frowned and spoke in a low voice.

    Suddenly, a figure appeared behind the two people. He was extremely fast and a freshly killed corpse was held in his hands.

    At the sight of the figure's speed, Lin Yi hardened his face: "Second-rate expert?!"

    Thanks for the chapter
  • Chapter 77 Inviting Trouble


    Upon hearing Lin Yi's words, everyone trembled in shock and disbelief.

    "How can it be? Why would second-rate experts appear here? I thought only third-rate experts appeared near Lanzhou City!" Yan Bei had an incredulous look and he could not believe what he had just heard.

    What kind of people were second-rate experts? Even the head of Swallow Fortress was only a second-rate expert!

    In Jianghu, every second-rate expert was hugely famous and usually commanded a great force or lorded over an area. They were rarely seen even in major sects.

    How many people were there in Huashan?

    The lower courtyard recruited ten thousand odd people every year, and second-rate experts only existed among the core disciples. Among 300 core disciples, less than a hundred of them were second-rate experts. Including elders from various branch divisions and headquarters, there were less than 300 in total.

    This was considering that Huashan was a major sect! How many major sects were there in existence? The number could be counted with both hands.

    Every second-rate expert was capable of taking over a battlefield!

    In a place like Lanzhou City where third-rate experts roamed, how could there be a second-rate expert?

    Yan Bei could not believe it and he was completely stunned by Lin Yi's words.

    "Hmph, demonic cult disciples are unscrupulous and despicable, the appearance of a second-rate expert is nothing strange." Yiqian was displeased by Yan Bei's stunned look and snorted coldly.

    In her opinion, there was nothing the demonic cult disciples wasn't capable of doing.

    "They must have been plotting to send a second-rate expert to massacre the talents of our righteous faction!" Lu Buping exclaimed.

    "Listening to your words, I remembered something. In various locations of Shenzhou, the demonic cults have stirred up trouble and attracted the attention of our major sect experts. Could it be that their aim is actually Lanzhou City? This is bad, those who went to exterminate the demonic cult disciples are in danger!" Yun Taizi cried out in fear.

    "The danger is already here. Look, even someone like Monk Jueyuan is fleeing for his life, can it not be dangerous? Although this baldie has a shitty personality and loves being in the limelight, would he be running for his life unless he really had to?" Lin Yi smiled coldly with a serious expression.

    Although he did not fear second-rate experts, his current strength was still inadequate to take on a second-rate expert with certainty.

    At this moment, the figure was revealed in front of everyone's eyes. It was a thin middle-aged man who had eyes filled with crazy bloodthirst. He was licking his blood-red tongue and the corners of his mouth had bloodstains on it.

    In front of everyone, he ripped out the heart of the corpse he was holding and devoured it.

    Upon witnessing this act, Yan Bei vomited. Besides Lin Yi, his four companions' faces went pale from being shocked at what they just saw.

    "I recognize him, this man is Old Demon Xu! A few years ago, he committed mass murders and massacred a dozen sects around Jiangnan. Thousands of lives were lost. Our righteous faction issued a bounty for him in the entire Jianghu and sent people to hunt him down. Shaolin, Wudang and even our Five Mountain Sword Sects had sent people on the hunt, and the forces were led by second-rate experts. However, he still managed to escape to the Western Region and joined Ming Cult! That matter was a huge disgrace to our major sects!" Mo Yu suddenly pointed at the figure and yelled.

    All those who were present had heard of the incident regarding Old Demon Xu. He made a fool out of the righteous faction and became the pride of the demonic faction!

    Lin Yi's expression became extremely somber. This Old Demon Xu was an immensely notorious character back in the game! A true great devil!

    Speaking of Old Demon Xu, he was not only cunning, bloodthirsty and insane, he also had real talent.

    When he just entered Jianghu, he did not belong to any sect. Starting with basic martial arts, he later obtained the silver grade Iron Claws Art.

    Such a martial art was considered trash in the eyes of major sect disciples, but he was able to wield it with great viciousness and power. When he committed the mass murders, his internal art was only bronze grade. Someone like him was only considered an ordinary third-rate expert.

    However, Old Demon Xu was so talented that he was able to produce the power of superior martial arts with the silver grade Iron Claws Art. After joining Ming Cult and obtaining the superior martial art Eagle Claws Art, he became unstoppable.

    Just before the era of chaos arrived, he became a first-rate expert within just a few months, having completely mastered the Eagle Claws Art. Back then, he became the most popular candidate to become one of the Four Dragon Kings of Ming Cult. Even though he did not one of them eventually, he was still one of the greatest devils of the demonic faction. It was not going to be easy to deal with someone like that.

    ......

    Monk Jueyuan nearly went crazy.

    The devil behind him was too scary.

    After running for an entire day and night, he was still following closely behind. The hundreds of major sect disciples who fled with Monk Jueyuan had dwindled to just one Quanzhen disciple. The rest had all been killed and had their hearts ripped out by Old Demon Xu!

    Even his twenty-odd Shaolin fellow disciples had died to Old Demon Xu, and Monk Jueyuan's heart had nothing left in it but fear.

    He previously did not know the power of a second-rate expert, but now he was finally aware of it. In front of someone like that, he was completely unable to fight back. Even running for his life was incredibly difficult!

    "Keke!"

    Monk Jueyuan's heart trembled when he heard that sound. It meant that Old Demon Xu was going to kill again!

    Just as he thought that an Eagle Claw assailed towards his back and he could feel the cold wind blowing from the attack. After running for one day and one night, Monk Jueyuan could no longer put up much resistance.

    His heart despaired and he closed his eyes to await the arrival of death.

    But in the next moment, he opened his eyes again!

    "Can't die, I can't die!"

    "I, Jueyuan, still haven't made my name in Jianghu!"

    "I am the greatest genius in Shaolin!"

    "Destined to become the abbot of Shaolin!"

    "How can I die here?"

    As he thought that, he looked towards the Quanzhen disciple near him and a wicked expression flashed in his eyes.


    Using his Dragon Claw Hands, instead of defending against Old Demon Xu's Eagle Claws, he grabbed the Quanzhen disciple and pushed him towards the Eagle Claws.

    "Master Jueyuan, you...!?"

    The Quanzhen disciple never expected Monk Jueyuan to stab him in the back like this in order to save his own hide.

    With his eyes wide and an expression of disbelief, one of the Eagle Claws sank into his chest and ripped his heart out, killing him instantly!

    Even after he died, he continued staring at Monk Jueyuan with great bitterness.

    "Don't blame me, I am someone destined to become the abbot of Shaolin, how can I die here?"

    Monk Jueyuan had a wild and crazy expression on his face, and it was devoid of any benevolence of a monk.

    Old Demon Xu was surprised by what happened and broke out in maniacal laughter!

    "Hahaha, Shaolin, Shaolin! Being the leader of the righteous faction, don't you people always talk about slaying the devils and vanquishing the demons? How is that the things that you do are even more ruthless than our demonic faction?"

    "Looks like Shaolin is the greatest demonic cult!"

    Monk Jueyuan did not reply and focused on running.

    There was no guilt on his face, only hideousness and madness.

    Old Demon Xu looked at Monk Jueyuan's figure and licked his lips: "Keke, I really want to rip out this little monk's heart and see if it's red or black in color!"

    "Hahaha, but before that, I have to entertain myself with this little monk!"

    ......

    "This baldie is too wicked! How can he do such a thing? Is he still from our righteous faction?"

    Yiqian cursed loudly at what Monk Jueyuan did to save his own hide, and her eyes were filled with disgust and disdain.

    At her loud cursing, everyone's expression changed.

    "This is bad, he discovered us!" Lu Buping shouted in fear.

    Monk Jueyuan and Old Demon Xu turned their heads towards them.

    At the sight of the five of them, Monk Jueyuan's eyes lit up. Putting on a benevolent smile, he sprinted towards them while laughing: "Disciples from Five Mountain Sword Sects, all of you are here at the right time. Let's kill this devil together!"

    Pointing toward Old Demon Xu behind him: "This one here is a great devil from the demonic faction. Once we kill him, we will be famous in Jianghu!"

    In his heart, he was smiling coldly and filled with killing intent.

    Those who saw what he did must die!

    Otherwise, it would be disastrous for him once news of his actions spread.

    Old Demon Xu looked coldly at the five of them and laughed: "Keke, more major sect disciples from the righteous sects are here. Good timing, I will take revenge for hunting me down back then!"

    The five of them were shocked by the turn of events.

    As Lin Yi looked at Monk Jueyuan, his eyes were filled with killing intent. However, now was not the time to kill him, and he took a deep breath before shouting: "Prepare for battle!"

    His companions quickly put on their helmets and drew their swords before taking a defensive stance.

    Lin Yi glanced at Yan Bei who was scared witless and unable to move. He couldn't even run for his life, not to mention doing battle.

    Shaking his head, Lin Yi stopped paying attention to him and focused on Old Demon Xu.

    Monk Jueyuan passed them by like a gust of wind before shouting loudly in a righteous tone: "Disciples from Five Mountain Sword Sects, don't give up! This humble monk will go and look for help!"

    "Please persevere until reinforcements arrive!"

    Hearing his words, Lin Yi's companions started cursing loudly. However, once Old Demon Xu appeared before them, they could only stop talking and focus all their attention on him.
  • Thanks for the chapter. I hope you are doing better.
  • Chapter 78 Battling the Old Demon

    "Keke!"

    Old Demon Xu landed in front of them with a strange laugh, his voice chilly and harsh, and it was creepy.

    "He's here!"

    Lu Buping shouted and was unable to suppress his fear. Even though the helmet covered his face, the trembling of his body revealed his emotions to everyone.

    No one was going to laugh at him.

    The powerful aura of the second-rate expert Old Demon Xu made everyone feel immense pressure. They were overwhelmed as if the sky had collapsed.

    That taste can no longer be described as simple fear.

    Shock, tension, anxiety...

    Everyone was feeling all sorts of negative emotions, but nobody escaped!

    "Attack together and kill him!" Yiqian nervously shouted before launching an attack.

    Lu Buping, Mo Yu, and Yun Taizi followed closely behind.

    They used all their strongest sword arts, and they did not dare to hold back.

    Northern Hengshan's Myriad Blossoms Sword Art!

    Songshan's Seventeen Styles of Quick and Slow Sword Art!

    Southern Hengshan's Returning Winds Falling Swan Sword Art!

    Taishan's Seven Stars Descending the Skies!

    The four great sword arts greeted Old Demon Xu.

    After a few days of bloody battles, the sword arts of the four have become seasoned and polished.

    Their swords are extremely fast and accurate!

    The power has vastly improved compared to a few days ago.

    Also, the four of them were able to coordinate well with each other, with Lu Buping, Mo Yu, and Yun Taizi focusing on offense while Yiqian focused on defense, further boosting their fighting prowess.

    Old Demon Xu laughed and pounced forward like an eagle, revealing his claw-like hands dripping with blood and shining with a fascinating blood-red luster as he met them.

    Peng-peng-peng!

    However, the greatly enhanced power of their superior sword arts was still not a match for Old Demon Xu's Eagle Claws.

    The four sword arts were broken at the same time!

    Before they had time to react, Old Demon Xu waved his hands.

    Pu-pu-pu!

    The Eagle Claws struck the positions of their hearts.

    Due to the protection of the heavy armor, their bodies were kept safe.

    However, the four people were blasted several meters away by the huge force before crashing onto the ground and rendered immobile.

    Having suffered a heavy blow to their chests, their bodies went stiff.

    All of them had been heavily injured and were no longer able to fight!

    In just two moves!

    If not for their heavy armor, the four of them would have been killed!

    The power of the devil was clear for all to see!

    Hiss!

    Lin Yi sucked in a breath of cold air. Old Demon Xu was much stronger than he imagined.

    Ordinary second-rate experts, despite being much stronger than third-rate experts, would not have been capable of beating the four people so easily!

    It is rumored that several third-rate experts from major sects are able to gain an upper hand if they were to fight second-rate experts.

    This is not a rumor, it is normal.

    Third-rate experts from major sects possess internal arts of silver grade at the minimum, and their martial arts are also superior ones. So it is not strange for several such third-rate experts to be evenly matched with one second-rate expert.

    But this Old Demon Xu was able to defeat the four of them in two moves. This meant that he had already reached the peak of second-rate experts.

    Lin Yi smiled bitterly.

    To think that he would encounter such a character this time.

    The enemy was too powerful!

    Even as he thought so, his hands did not slow down.

    Just when Old Demon Xu was going to remove the armor of the four people and proceed to kill them by ripping out their hearts, he heard a harsh whistling sound.

    Frowning, he saw the Huashan youth shooting a violet arrow at him!

    The arrow was extremely fast and it looked as if it was capable of piercing the entire sky.

    The power of the arrow definitely did not seem to be small.

    Old Demon Xu's face revealed a look of interest as the madness and bloodthirst in his eyes grew even stronger!

    He actually did not attempt to dodge the arrow but instead raised his Eagle Claws and grabbed at the violet arrow.

    Witnessing this scene, Lin Yi couldn't help but gasp in surprise.

    This Old Demon Xu was truly a madman. He was the first person who dared to grab Lin Yi's arrow with his bare hands, and this was the strongest arrow that Lin Yi had shot without holding back at all!

    The ferocity of the enemy made him feel terrified.

    After fighting with countless people, Lin Yi has seen all sorts of vicious and crazy people, but never has he encountered someone as crazy as Old Demon Xu!

    However, if you think that Old Demon Xu has a problem with his brain, it is definitely not the case.

    Old Demon Xu was extremely shrewd.

    He wants to use such a shocking method to catch the arrow to make the enemy lose their fighting spirit.

    Once that happens, they would be easily slaughtered by him!

    Of course, the most important thing is that Old Demon Xu believes that he has reached the peak of second-rate experts. How can an arrow shot by a mere third-rate expert threaten him? His heart was full of contempt for Lin Yi.

    Being underestimated and belittled.

    There was no anger in Lin Yi’s heart only a sneer on his face.

    All those who dared to underestimate him never met with a good end!

    It would be the same for great devils like Old Demon Xu!

    Boom!

    A violent collision was heard.

    The violet arrow brought with it a huge force and collided with Old Demon Xu's Eagle Claws.

    The result greatly exceeded the expectations of Old Demon Xu!

    He had still underestimated the power of the violet arrow.

    Although he managed to catch the arrow, his hand was injured in the process.

    The wound opened, and his blood flowed freely onto the ground.

    Old Demon Xu was filled with rage!

    He was actually hurt!

    An expression of pity flashed in Lin Yi’s eyes, but he didn’t care too much.

    Without his archery techniques, although he still possessed his archery skills, he was unable to enhance the power of his arrows.

    They were still extremely effective against similarly classed experts, but against much stronger enemies, the effect was greatly diminished.

    However, at least he prevented Old Demon Xu from killing his companions.

    From a tactical point of view, he succeeded. The only pity is that the overall situation was not affected.

    He only inflicted a small injury to Old Demon Xu and did not manage to cause further damage.

    Old Demon Xu still possessed terrifying fighting ability.

    "Keke, very good, very good! Huashan's youth, you are not bad at all, you actually managed to injure me." Old Demon Xu smiled as the killing intent in his eyes intensified, and he continued in a terrifying tone: "But this is as far as you can go, I'm going to rip out your heart and eat it in front of you!"

    "This is the price of angering me!"

    As he spoke, he retrieved ten finger gloves from his pockets. Each finger glove is conical and just fits the finger into it, while the tips of the gloves shone coldly.

    Placing all ten fingers into them, his fingers now sparkled with a cold light.

    There was no doubt that Old Demon Xu’s hands were now capable of breaking anything right now!

    Even heavy armor could be easily torn!

    Apparently, Old Demon Xu has begun to take his opponent seriously. Even though it was just an unremarkable Huashan disciple, but since he was capable of inflicting an injury, Old Demon Xu would no longer look down on his opponent.

    The old devil was smart and cunning, and he would never make the same mistake twice!

    Seeing this, a trace of pity flashed in Lin Yi’s eyes. Old Demon Xu was actually going all out to deal with him. He could no longer depend on his enemy underestimating him. This battle will definitely be a tough one!

    This was the most difficult and dangerous battle of life and death that he has encountered ever since he crossed over, and defeat would mean death!

    He could not escape, or his companions would all die. Not that he was capable of escaping anyway.

    How could the silver grade Huashan Movement Art possibly outclass Old Demon Xu's skills inherited from Eagle Claws Dragon King? Besides a pair of incredibly sharp claws, an eagle also possesses great speed!

    Thinking of this, Lin Yi threw Longmang Bow onto the ground. He also threw away all the arrows he was carrying, as well as everything else which hindered his movement.

    Leaving just Qingfeng Sword in his hand, even the sheath was thrown aside.

    It was time to go all out!

    "what?!"

    Seeing Lin Yi actually throwing away his bow and arrows, and drawing his sword instead, Old Demon Xu could not help but be surprised.

    From what he saw, this Huashan youth possessed incredible archery skills. How great was it to be able to inflict injuries on him?

    To think that the youth had something more powerful than his archery skills. Old Demon Xu was unable to curb his curiosity upon seeing such an interesting person.

    Stopping his actions, Old Demon Xu silently looked at what the youth was up to.

    There were no excessive movements, and the youth merely drew his sword and took a stance.

    Old Demon Xu cried out in surprise: "Deadly Chain of Three Celestial Swords? You are Huashan's Deadly Celestial Sword?"

    As the youth admitted with his silence, Old Demon Xu laughed heartily: "Hahaha, to think that I would find you without any effort at all. I was just fretting about how I was going to find you and kill you! The heavens are helping me!"

    Lin Yi was not surprised. By killing both Blood Raiment Prince and Ouyang Jue, he must have been listed as a top priority target by the demonic cults.

    Lin Yi was slowly building up his aura and trying to sense the sword in his hand.

    At the moment he sensed his mind connecting with the sword, his expression changed, and his aura erupted.

    It was as if he had changed into an entirely different person. The gentle demeanor he usually had was gone without a trace. The only things left were everlasting coldness and immeasurable killing intent!

    His killing intent even surpassed that of Old Demon Xu.

    Old Demon Xu was taken aback, but before he could speak, Lin Yi leaped forward like an arrow and attacked with his sword. He was extremely fast and he viciously struck at Old Demon Xu's head.

    Old Demon Xu felt something cold approaching his head and he instantly focused his attention on his enemy. Raising his shiny fingers, he grabbed at the sword.

    Dang!

    When the sword and the fingers collided, sparks flew.

    The sword was abruptly retracted, and Old Demon Xu had no chance to grab hold of the sword.

    Changing his position, Lin Yi now struck towards Old Demon Xu's side. Once again, it was fast, accurate and difficult to defend against.

    Reversing his hand, Old Demon Xu made another grabbing motion.

    Dang! Dang! Dang!

    Just like that, they exchanged dozens of moves, the two of them constantly changing their positions.

    It was either Old Demon Xu attacking from the side or Lin Yi doing the same, both of them trying their best to occupy the most favorable position to attack their enemy.

    Darting from point to point, both figures were extremely quick, and they resembled two fighter jets in close combat trying to gain the advantageous position before one another, neither giving way to each other.

  • Chapter 79 An Even Match


    The battle between the two grew more and more intense.

    Both figures constantly exchanged blows and constantly darted all over the place, as if it were two shadows fighting each other, and it was impossible for others to see them clearly.

    One figure brandished his sword as the blade sparkled with light.

    He was extremely fast, unpredictable and vicious.

    Every move he made was capable of killing, and he wielded his sword with precision and deadliness. It was truly an art of killing, and the only goal was to kill the opponent.

    The other figure brandished his claws as the metallic finger gloves shone with a chilling light.

    There was no question that the claws were extremely destructive.

    Even steel could be torn apart like cloth.

    The battle between the two was incredibly tense and filled with danger, and one slight mistake could result in death.

    ......

    Fear grew in Old Demon Xu's heart as he fought.

    The sword art of the Huashan youth before him was too powerful.

    He had already reached the perfection stage of Deadly Chain of Three Celestial Swords, a superior sword art.

    One had to know, even a second-rate expert like Old Demon Xu could only reach the advanced stage of Eagle Claws Art after training in seclusion for years.

    In comparison, the youth was now capable of producing countless variations with his sword art which originally only had three moves, and each variation contained the power of a superior sword art.

    Old Demon Xu was starting to run out of new moves. Eagle Claws Art did not really have that many different moves.

    Grabbing, tearing, cracking...

    It came down to just those few moves.

    If Old Demon Xu had not used his original martial art Iron Claws Art as well, he would have run out of moves a long time ago.

    Facing a similarly skilled opponent, it was dangerous to recycle one's moves.

    It meant that your opponent can now read you like an open book and take advantage of the openings in your moves.

    At best, it meant heavy injuries. At worst, it meant death!

    Thinking of this, Old Demon Xu hardened his heart.

    This cannot go on!

    Just as Old Demon Xu was about to lose the advantage, he abruptly changed his move!

    Ignoring Lin Yi's deadly attack, he directly attacked Lin Yi with his Eagle Claws in what seemed to be an attempt to perish together.

    Apparently, he was gambling that Lin Yi would not have the guts to perish together with him!

    Why would a genius with a bright future choose to perish together with an old devil?

    Old Demon Xu's face revealed a hint of ridicule as he was convinced that the Huashan youth would not have the guts to do so and he was doomed to lose this battle!

    A true expert would dare to stare at death directly. Those who were afraid of dying could never become a true expert, no matter how powerful one's martial arts were!

    Being afraid of dying meant that openings will inevitably be revealed, which in turn meant defeat.

    Victory was certain for Old Demon Xu!

    As he thought about how a top genius from Huashan was going to die to his hands, Old Demon felt a sense of achievement. It surpassed the feeling he got from killing several hundred major sect disciples.

    How could those disciples compare to this Huashan youth?

    He was able to fight evenly with Old Demon Xu even though he was only a third-rate expert, and he was even showing signs of gaining the upper hand.

    This was a genius who was capable of fighting people higher-classed than himself!

    Among all the people Old Demon Xu had met, only the Young Master of Ming Cult, Ao Tianjiao had been capable of doing that.

    Who was Ao Tianjiao?

    The number one genius in the demonic faction, and possibly in all of Jianghu.

    A righteous faction genius who was just as talented as Ao Tianjiao was going to die to his hands. How could Old Demon Xu not get excited from it?

    Suddenly, Old Demon Xu's face froze.

    The Huashan youth actually ignored his attempt to perish together and continued piercing towards his heart with his sword.

    Old Demon Xu was speechless.

    How can a top genius like you not be afraid of death?

    That is just not possible!

    His heart was filled with shock and disbelief.

    The madness in Old Demon Xu's eyes grew even more intense.

    He was unable to believe that the Huashan youth truly did not fear death.

    Trying to compete with Old Demon Xu at not fearing death.

    Laughable!

    Under the shocked gazes of everyone, Old Demon Xu and Lin Yi both struck each other!

    At the last moment, Old Demon Xu twisted his body and the sword pierced his waist instead, inflicting a serious injury!

    Lin Yi also dodged at the last moment and was able to avoid getting hit at a critical area. However, his left arm was hit by the Eagle Claws and a large chunk of flesh was ripped off, causing his left arm to be disabled and rendered immobile.

    Both of them were not afraid of death and traded injury for injury.

    With a pained grunt, they backed off with great speed, temporarily halting the battle.

    Pressing the appropriate acupuncture points to stop the bleeding, both of them panted heavily as they stared at each other.

    Old Demon Xu's face had a shocked but solemn expression.

    Lin Yi was expressionless and his face was cold. If he had not been panting, nobody would even notice that he had been injured.

    Facing someone who was so harsh on himself, even Old Demon Xu was intimidated.

    Geniuses and powerful sword arts were not scary. A genius who possesses a powerful sword art and was not afraid of death was the truly scary thing.

    If Old Demon Xu was the kind of crazy that had an insatiable lust for blood, Lin Yi would be the kind of crazy that was ruthless and thought nothing of life and death.

    Staring at each other, they both wanted the other person dead!

    ......

    "My God!"

    Yan Bei who was frozen by fear could not help crying out in his heart as he watched the two battle.

    He was filled with disbelief.


    If someone had told him that a powerful genius was capable of fighting a higher-classed expert, he wouldn't believe it no matter what.

    But now, the scene in front of him had proven otherwise.

    He had witnessed with his own eyes what a true genius was capable of!

    In contrast, someone like Yan Bei was not fit to be called a genius at all!

    The difference between them was like heaven and earth.

    "Could it be that the geniuses from major sects are all this powerful?"

    "It's incredible!"

    "Deadly Celestial Sword is indeed worthy of being my idol!"

    ......

    Upon seeing that Lin Yi was evenly matched with Old Demon Xu, his four companions were shocked beyond belief.

    Lin Yi's performance had greatly exceeded their expectations and imaginations!

    "To think that Senior Brother Lin Yi would be evenly matched with Old Demon Xu!"

    "He is the greatest genius I've seen so far!"

    "Incredible! Old Demon Xu took out the four of us in two moves, and if it weren't for our heavy armor, we would already be dead. Against someone like that, Senior Brother Lin Yi could actually fight him to a standstill! Senior Brother Lin Yi is too insanely powerful isn't he?"

    "There's no need to say any further words, Senior Brother Lin Yi is obviously on a completely different level compared to us!"

    As the four of them lay on the ground, they could not help crying out in shock as they watched Lin Yi battle with Old Demon Xu.

    Not only was Senior Brother Lin Yi very strong, but he was also indifferent towards life and death.

    The four of them thought of the same thing.

    Senior Brother Lin Yi was probably the top genius in Five Mountain Sword Sects, even surpassing Linghu Feng!

    ......

    Some distance away, another pair of eyes watched with shock and disbelief.

    It belonged to the one who ran away, Monk Jueyuan.

    After successfully luring Old Demon Xu to the disciples of Five Mountain Sword Sects, he originally wanted to leave the place as fast as possible.

    However, he could not rest easy before he had personally witnessed their deaths at the hands of Old Demon Xu.

    They had seen how he caused the death of the Quanzhen disciple by using him as a meat shield to save his own skin!

    Therefore, he secretly returned to watch the battle from a hiding spot.

    To think that he would see Lin Yi being an even match for Old Demon Xu, and even nearly perishing together at the last part of the battle!

    Although they both survived, Monk Jueyuan nearly cried out in shock at the scene.

    "How could this Lin Yi be so powerful?"

    "He's actually capable of fighting a second-rate expert as a third-rate expert?"

    "How is this possible!"

    He was completely shocked, as someone who was capable of fighting higher-classed experts did not exist in the entire righteous faction. Not even the top genius of Shaolin, Master Juexing, was capable of such a feat!

    Wudang did not have someone like that either.

    Not even among the two giants of the demonic faction, Ming Cult and Sun Moon Holy Cult, did someone like that exist!

    But Lin Yi of Huashan could do it.

    This fact nearly drove Monk Jueyuan crazy.

    Rubbing his eyes repeatedly, he confirmed that he was not hallucinating.

    With his talent, Lin Yi was qualified to be the top genius in all of Jianghu!

    A great fear arose in his heart.

    He had plotted Lin Yi's death.

    Would Lin Yi kill him?

    Shock and fear eventually left Monk Jueyuan's face, leaving behind only malevolence and killing intent!
  • Yay. New chapter. Thanks.
  • Good chapter. Thanks!
  • Chapter 80 Killing the Devil in Three Moves


    After losing a chunk of flesh from his left arm, Lin Yi's white garb was dyed crimson red.

    His left arm was a bloody mess and bleeding profusely, while his face paled rapidly.

    As he glanced at his left arm, he was constantly wracked by pain. He could no longer move his left arm.

    A great anger arose in his heart, and his blood boiled.

    Ba-thump! Ba-thump!

    His heart was beating rapidly and its speed was increasing.

    Lin Yi's eyes suddenly turned red, and with a loud boom, an incredibly menacing aura emanated from him.

    The aura enveloped Old Demon Xu, and it was so thick that it resembled solid matter.

    Old Demon Xu was taken aback, for it was as if Lin Yi had transformed into a killing machine and he stared right at Old Demon Xu with his cold red eyes without any expression.

    Suddenly, Old Demon Xu felt that it had been a grave mistake right from the start to battle this youth. Fear arose in his heart.

    However, it was too late!

    Lin Yi made his move!

    His sword was still as tricky, vicious and fast as it had been.

    However, it now contained an indescribable attribute. This attribute was like the power of heaven and earth, like the culmination of killing intent. There was a profound and mystical air to it.

    "Kill!"

    Lin Yi uttered a single word with a cold expression.

    His injury had triggered the bloodthirst hidden deep within his heart. The bloodthirst of a peak expert who had slaughtered tens of thousands of people.

    At this moment, the God-ranked player, the peak expert was back!

    He still used the same Deadly Chain of Three Celestial Swords, but his every move was now filled with mystical energy, and it was as if his sword art had come alive!

    The power of the sword art was greatly amplified!

    Glinting with a cold sparkle, his overbearing sword which contained the power of heaven and earth descended upon Old Demon Xu with overwhelming pressure.

    It was impossible to dodge and Old Demon Xu could only block it with all his might!

    Showing fear on his face, Old Demon Xu gritted his teeth and swung his Eagle Claws at the sword.

    Pu!

    A finger with the metallic glove still on it flew off from Old Demon Xu's hand. One finger had been severed.

    "Ahh!"

    Old Demon Xu cried out in great pain while Lin Yi remained expressionless.

    The second move.

    Just as overbearing as the first one, but even more powerful. This was the peak state of the sword art.

    "Ahh!"

    Old Demon Xu cried out in pain once more as one of his hands was severed this time. One hand had one finger severed while the other hand was entirely severed. Eagle Claws Art had been broken!

    Lin Yi's face grew even paler, and it was now as white as a sheet.

    The third move!

    The culmination of countless variations.

    If the first move was fast, the second move was vicious.

    And the third move was accurate!

    With a single stab, Qingfeng Sword pierced through Old Demon Xu's heart and penetrated his chest.

    "Ahhh!"

    The final and most miserable cry came from Old Demon Xu's mouth.

    Vitality was visibly slipping away from his face with great speed.

    Gazing towards Lin Yi with fear and disbelief, he uttered: "The supreme power?"

    Old Demon Xu roared, his voice revealing misery and reluctance before he finally said with a tone of liberation: "To think that you have achieved the supreme power with a superior sword art. With your sword art having reached divinity, it is normal for me to die in your hands."

    "I accept defeat!"

    At this moment, Old Demon Xu's eyes flashed dangerously, and he raised his Eagle Claw with four fingers remaining and struck towards Lin Yi's chest.

    It was so fast that afterimages were left behind, and a chilling wind could be felt before the attack reached him.

    This was the final attack of Old Demon Xu with his dying breath!

    If Lin Yi was hit, he would be rendered half-dead at best!

    His four companions cried out in shock and were about to warn Lin Yi when they saw his sword making an abrupt turn before slashing downwards with great force.

    Like a rag being torn, Old Demon Xu was torn into two halves!

    His Eagle Claw slumped along with his body to the ground.

    Old Demon Xu was finally dead!

    ......

    System notification:

    Killed an elder of Ming Cult, the second-rate expert Old Demon Xu, 100,000 battle experience awarded.

    Quest reward:

    Killing the great devil of the demonic faction Old Demon Xu, shocking the demonic faction and creating a sensation in Jianghu, 200,000 battle experience awarded.

    He had earned 300,000 battle experience in total, and a glint of joy flashed in Lin Yi's cold eyes.

    Before he could celebrate, he staggered and spit out a mouthful of blood.

    With a blur of his vision, he could no longer stand upright and collapsed onto the ground while gasping for air.

    "Senior Brother Lin Yi!"

    His four companions who were overjoyed and shocked at Old Demon Xu's death suddenly saw him collapsing and cried out in fear. With great difficulty, they limped and crawled towards Lin Yi.

    "Senior Brother Lin Yi!" "Senior Brother Lin Yi!" "Senior Brother Lin Yi!"

    Lin Yi opened his eyes tiredly and revealed a faint aura: "I...I'm alright...still alive...won't die!"

    Upon hearing his voice, they were relieved.

    Yiqian discarded all her heavy armor and placed Lin Yi's head on her legs. With tears in her eyes, she said: "Senior Brother Lin Yi, you've scared me to death!"

    "It's ok, aren't I still alive? Besides, Old Demon Xu is dead, all of you are safe now!" Lin Yi smiled and said in a weak voice as blood flowed from the corners of his mouth.

    The second stage of perfection stage Deadly Chain of Three Celestial Swords.

    Combining the power of countless variations into one move and infusing its three moves with the power of divine arts, it was now truly celestial.

    However, it was not a simple matter to utilize such power, especially for a third-rate expert like Lin Yi.

    Dealing a thousand damage to one's enemy and eight hundred damage to oneself.

    Lin Yi suffered internal injuries from the recoil as his body was unable to handle the power.

    "That's right, Old Demon Xu is dead!" Yiqian broke into a smile.

    Feeling her body relax, the suffocating pressure from Old Demon Xu was finally gone.

    "Senior Brother Lin Yi, you are too strong!" She raised up her thumb as her face was filled with worship.

    She was well aware of Old Demon Xu's strength after nearly getting killed by him. However, Senior Brother Lin Yi was actually able to kill him.

    Although he suffered great injuries as a result, it was still a shocking feat to kill a second-rate expert as a third-rate expert.

    Senior Brother Lin Yi was simply a monster!

    Hearing Yiqian's praise, Yun Taizi, Mo Yu, and Lu Buping nodded their head and gave a thumbs up as well. "Senior Brother Lin Yi is indeed a monster!"

    Lin Yi simply smiled and closed his eyes as he rested on Yiqian's legs and appreciated the feeling of barely escaping death.

    ......

    Yan Bei's mouth was agape and he could not speak.

    What he just saw had exceeded his greatest imaginations!

    To think that the terrifying Old Demon Xu was killed by Lin Yi.

    It wasn't a hallucination, was it?

    And what did Old Demon Xu mean by the phrase "the supreme power"?

    He realized that these major sect disciples existed in a different world from him.

    There were too many things that he did not understand.

    Sitting in a daze, he repeated the same few words: "Old Demon Xu is killed by Deadly Celestial Sword?"

    "Old Demon Xu is killed?"

    "Killed by a third-rate expert!"

    ......

    "How could this be?!"

    Monk Jueyuan's eyes nearly popped out when he saw Lin Yi cut Old Demon Xu into two.

    He was shocked speechless.

    "He actually killed Old Demon Xu?"

    "He really killed Old Demon Xu!"

    "This Lin Yi's strength is too frightening isn't it?"

    Monk Jueyuan could not help being overwhelmed by emotions.

    "Now that he has killed Old Demon Xu, he is sure to create a sensation in Jianghu and become the most well-known top genius!"

    "I am nothing at all when compared to him!"

    "Now that I have offended him greatly, he is sure to take revenge!"

    "Against a monster like him who managed to kill even Old Demon Xu, I have no chance of winning!"

    "I'm going to die and be completely disgraced for what I did!"

    Monk Jueyuan's face was full of fear and anxiety as he thought about it.

    "No, this place is too dangerous, I can't let them see me or they will surely kill me!"

    Monk Jueyuan was about to turn and leave when he suddenly halted and glanced at the five people lying on the ground.

    All the disciples of Five Mountain Sword Sects were heavily injured!

    The only one unharmed was the unremarkable Yan Bei.

    Killing intent flashed in his eyes.

    "They are all heavily injured now, it's the best chance for me!"

    "They will never expect me to return to this place!"

    "Haha, once I kill them, nobody will know that I caused the death of the Quanzhen disciple."

    "Moreover, if they're dead, I will claim the credit for killing Old Demon Xu!"

    "When that happens, I will become the most outstanding Shaolin disciple in the entire Jianghu!"

    "The position of Shaolin's Abbot won't be far from me!"
  • Thanks for the chapter.
  • Chapter 81 Killing Jueyuan


    "Let's get out of here, it's too dangerous to stay here!", Lin Yi said weakly.

    "Alright, Yiqian will help Senior Brother Lin Yi!"

    Yiqian nodded and got up to help Lin Yi up. Just when the five of them were about to leave, they heard great laughter.

    "Go? Go where? None of you will be leaving here today!"

    A figure approached them from behind like the wind.

    "Ah!"

    A terrible cry was heard.

    The figure had grabbed hold of Yan Bei's neck and squeezed.

    With a cracking sound, Yan Bei's neck was broken.

    He was murdered in front of them!

    "It's you!"

    Yiqian watched as the figure threw Yan Bei's corpse to one side like trash. She then said in anger and disbelief: "Monk Jueyuan, you...you actually murdered him?!"

    The figure was Monk Jueyuan.

    "Murdered him? So what? Hahaha!"

    Monk Jueyuan laughed like a madman.

    "Are you crazy? You actually murdered a righteous sect disciple, what are you trying to do?"

    Yiqian was infuriated as she especially hated the wicked.

    A disciple of Shaolin, the leader of the righteous faction, actually murdered a righteous sect disciple.

    How could she believe what she saw?

    Mo Yu, Lu Buping, and Yun Taizi also stared at Monk Jueyuan with wide eyes in disbelief.

    Weren't Shaolin disciples supposed to be kindhearted?

    How could they suddenly become murderers?

    Before, when they saw Monk Jueyuan use the Quanzhen disciple as a meat shield, they could still attribute it to Monk Jueyuan's fear of death. But now, there was no longer any excuse.

    Monk Jueyuan simply continued laughing crazily.

    Looking at the five of them, especially Lin Yi, his eyes were filled with bitterness and viciousness.

    "Lin Yi, you never expected me to come back did you?"

    "Haha, you dared to foil my plans and disgrace me in front of others!"

    "Today, I'm going to kill you!"

    Upon hearing the word 'kill', everyone's expressions changed.

    "Monk Jueyuan, what are you going to do?"

    Yiqian stood in front of Lin Yi and shouted warily.

    Even exerting a small amount of strength caused pain in her heart, nearly causing her to be unable to stand upright, but she stubbornly held on.

    "Do what?"

    Speaking in a sinister and cold voice, Monk Jueyuan said: "I'm going to kill all of you!"

    "Then nobody will know that I caused the death of the Quanzhen disciple!"

    Glancing at Old Demon Xu's corpse, his face was filled with greed as he licked his lips: "And I can even claim credit for killing Old Demon Xu!"

    "Haha, I will be famous in the entire Jianghu!"

    Yiqian frowned while Lu Buping stared at him in disbelief: "Are you mad?!"

    "Mad? I'm not mad!"

    "I'm more sane and lucid than anyone else!"

    "You fools believe in righteousness and evil, how foolish!"

    "There are no differences between the righteous and demonic, only profits!"

    "Why do the demonic faction and righteous faction battle?"

    "It's not for the sake of justice or evil, it's for the sake of profits!", Monk Jueyuan roared.

    No one knew whether he was saying it for the five of them to hear or trying to justify his murders.

    "Once I kill all of you, nobody will know what I did!"

    "Once I kill all of you, the credit for killing Old Demon Xu will be mine!"

    "Once I kill all of you, nobody will be able to compete with me to become the most outstanding genius in the righteous faction!

    "Once I kill all of you..."

    Listing several reasons in quick succession, the five of them were speechless upon hearing his words.

    Yiqian shouted in fury and interrupted Monk Jueyuan: "No matter what reasons you have, if you want to kill Senior Brother Lin Yi, you will have to kill me first!"

    Monk Jueyuan looked at her with disdain: "Kill you first? Little nun, do you still have the strength to use your sword?"

    "You can't even stand upright, how are you going to protect others?"

    Revealing a lustful expression, Monk Jueyuan said with a laugh: "Little nun, don't worry. Once I kill off the rest of them, I will have a 'proper battle' with you!"

    With that being said, he raised his Dragon Claw Hands and shouted: "Lin Yi, time to die!"

    "Haha, you are indeed strong, and I admit that I'm much weaker in comparison."

    "But, do you still have the strength to lift your sword?"

    "Now that you are at your weakest, I can do as I please to you!"

    "I advise you to quietly accept your death and I will make it a quick one!"

    Monk Jueyuan laughed as he approached Lin Yi.

    Suddenly, the feeble Lin Yi raised his cold eyes and pushed Yiqian away. Lifting his sword, he stabbed forward.

    Just like when he had killed Old Demon Xu, this sword also possessed supreme power.

    How could Monk Jueyuan be a match for it?

    With a flash of the sword, Monk Jueyuan's outstretched right hand was severed by the sword!

    Blood gushed out from the stump like a fountain!

    "Ahh!"

    Monk Jueyuan cried out in pain as he grabbed his stump and retreated in fear.

    He had long since been afraid of Lin Yi, and seeing that Lin Yi was still capable of producing such a terrifying move, he was overwhelmed by fear. As a result, he tripped and fell on the ground.

    As Lin Yi approached him with the sword dripping with blood without any expression, Monk Jueyuan endured the pain from his injury and kneeled on the ground.

    With a pleading expression, he begged: "Lin Yi, Young Hero Lin! I was wrong, please have mercy on me!"

    Lin Yi smiled coldly and merely pointed his sword at Monk Jueyuan's throat.

    Feeling the coldness of the blade, Monk Jueyuan's fear rose to the peak.

    "I was blinded by the demons in my heart, this monk knows his mistake!"

    "Please don't kill me, Young Hero Lin!"

    "I'm inhuman, and I should never have tried to kill Young Hero Lin."

    "I'm less than a beast!"

    "Young Hero Lin is a top genius, there's no need to bother with small fry like me. Please forgive me once and take it that I was talking nonsense!"

    Monk Jueyuan repeatedly begged for mercy as he kneeled on the ground.

    Lin Yi's companions could not bear to watch it and they repeatedly opened and closed their mouths but did not manage to say anything.

    Monk Jueyuan was truly despicable and deserved to die!

    Although he belonged to the righteous faction, he was no different from a demonic cult disciple.

    Seeing the killing intent in their eyes, anger abruptly rose in Monk Jueyuan's heart.

    Raising his head, he shouted in anger: "I am a disciple of Shaolin, and I'm also one of the geniuses in Shaolin!"

    "If you kill me, Shaolin will take revenge for me!"

    "Hmph, although the Five Mountain Sword Sects are major sects, they are worthless compared to Shaolin!"

    "Even the Five Mountain Sword Sects won't be able to protect you by then!"

    Monk Jueyuan's words were full of threat, and their expressions changed.

    Although Monk Jueyuan deserved death, he was a Shaolin disciple!

    Shaolin was indeed the undisputed leader of the righteous faction, and if they killed him, even their sects would not have the ability to protect them from Shaolin.

    Killing Monk Jueyuan was making an enemy out of Shaolin!

    They could not help but start worrying about it.

    Seeing the fear and indecisiveness in their eyes, Monk Jueyuan added with a snort: "Are the Five Mountain Sword Sects really going to oppose Shaolin?"

    If they ended up causing great trouble for their sects, they would really be sinners!

    The four of them looked at Lin Yi with worried faces.

    Yiqian timidly asked: "Senior Brother Lin Yi, why don't we let him go?"

    "That's right, Senior Brother Lin Yi, we can't afford to offend Shaolin."

    "Killing Jueyuan will invite great trouble!"

    The rest nodded their heads in agreement.

    Upon hearing their words, Lin Yi nodded without any hesitation and said: "Alright!"

    They sighed in relief at Lin Yi's reply.

    After all, killing a Shaolin disciple was not the same as killing a demonic cult disciple.

    The latter was called exterminating evil, while the former was called murder!

    Although both acts involved killing, the meaning behind it was as different as heaven and earth.

    Monk Jueyuan broke out in great joy and he glanced arrogantly at them.

    "Good thing you know what's good for you!"

    Getting up from the ground, he gave one last bitter look at Lin Yi before turning around and pompously leaving.

    Laughing coldly in his heart, he started planning his next move.

    He was going to try his best to smear the reputation of these five people, especially Lin Yi!

    Clutching his stump in pain, Monk Jueyuan's eyes were filled with bitter resent.

    Suddenly, he sensed a sword approaching him.

    It was so abrupt and quick that before he could react, his throat had been pierced by the sword.

    Turning back, he saw that the attacker was indeed Lin Yi and he sputtered: "You...you...went back on your word!"

    Lin Yi smiled coldly: "Shaolin? The leader of the righteous faction? You think that I wouldn't dare to kill you just because you brought up the name of Shaolin?"

    "You are too naive!"

    Monk Jueyuan previously thought that these people from Five Mountain Sword Sects were too naive and easy to intimidate. To think that Lin Yi would throw these words back at him.

    Vomiting blood as he died!

    Quest reward:

    Looking at the 40,000 battle experienced bestowed by Monk Jueyuan, Lin Yi gave a cold laugh.

    Turning his head, he saw his companions looking at him with a stunned expression.
  • Well...The monk will finally get his due soon.
