"Let’s pave out a bloody path."
As soon as he dropped those words, Ling Xian took one step slowly but with certainty. The wind instantly blew in all four directions and his white robe tussled.
Unmatchable heavenly energy poured out of him and covered the sky and the ground!
"Yes, we will pave out a bloody path alongside Master Ling!"
"Haha, let’s kill! Let’s kill all of these bastards!"
"With Master Ling paving out the road for us, we will definitely be able to escape!"
Every cultivator of the Zi Yang House spoke out as they watched the thin but grand back. Their faces full of trust and anticipation.
"Let us go."
Ling Xian’s expression was determined despite the pressure he had to carry on his shoulders. Since he agreed to Zi Dong Lai’s request, then he will not let his trust go down the drain, nor will he let all these cultivators’ down.
Therefore, he made the final decision to lead these people, pave out a bloody path, and escape this place!
Qi of the foundational level transformed into a giant shield and enclosed all the cultivators behind him.
Spinning around, Ling Xian marched forward in large steps. His pace was very slow, but it revealed a form of determination. Every time he foot landed, the space shook like an ancient dragon was moving. The sky and the ground shattered out of fear.
As he marched forward, the two forces’ people converged together. In one glance, there were thousands of cultivators.
Every single one of them had a heavy expression as they gripped onto their weapon of choice. Looking at the young man in white who was coming their way, sweat showed up on their foreheads.
After witnessing the battle in the sky just now, these cultivators all agree that the person before them was very powerful. However, as their team grew in number, the fear they felt vanished and was replaced with the confidence of claiming victory.
To them, even if Ling Xian was a victor and was beast enough to battle against two completion-leveled cultivators, he cannot win against so many people.
Thus, they relaxed as they waved the weapons in their hands and aimed at Ling Xian.
"Let us kill!"
Hundreds of shouts rumbled the sky while thousands of cultivators made their moves. The thousand man army marched forward beating their drums and riding their horses – their momentum was powerful and terrifying!
Techniques filled the sky one after one, all of them displayed the determination to kill Ling Xian.
However, faced with the collusion of the thousands of cultivators, Ling Xian’s expression was calm. After one "boom", his Halberd of the Divine Warrior sliced across and destroyed all the techniques headed for him!
Though thousands of cultivators is an intimidating fact, over half of these people were of the meditational level. The highest cultivation level here was the advanced stages of the foundational.
If this were before his breakthrough, Ling Xian would be somewhat afraid. But now, he is the victor of the foundational level and has the ability to fight against two completion!
Thousands of cultivators, in his eyes, was merely a useless mob.
"Get the hell away from me!"
Ling Xian angrily howled, shattering the nine heavens!
His black hair was messy as his Halberd emitted bright heavenly lights. As it sliced across, the entire area was shaking, and the ground cracked open!
One painful scream came after another. Not a single cultivator was able to block Ling Xian’s prowess. In the face of his Halberd of the Divine Warrior, they were all blown away.
Ling Xian’s black hair was crazily tussling in the wind. His cold stare was like electricity, passing through them. Like an undefeatable warrior, he peered down at those below him.
To lead all the descendants out of here, he completely let go. The first four transformative qualities of the Eyes of Execution all emerged, making him appear almighty with the ability to overtake all mountains and rivers!
"Dammit, he is too powerful. A simple swing of the arm sent us all flying!"
"What a strong Heaven’s Favorite. It is no wonder he was able to fight against two completion-leveled powerhouses!"
"What do we do? With our capabilities, it will be hard to stop this person!"
The cultivators from the two forces had lost their composure. Though they continued to attack Ling Xian, their bodies were now all trembling.
It was obvious that they were afraid.
"Hmmph, you all are already fearful. What an incapable bunch." Ling Xian coldly sneered as his Sword of Execution began to emit blood-red light. It turned into a small blade, the size of a palm, and stabbed forward.
The blade knocked out hundreds of sword as it swirled throughout the crowd. As sharp as ever, a blood path was created.
After a loud shout, Ling Xian began to move. Like a gold winged bird, he flew across the sky and led everyone forward.
Seeing this, the hundreds of cultivators behind him followed closely.
However, just as Ling Xian began to recklessly move and attack the people from the other two forces, the two completion-leveled powerhouses up above realized what was happening.
[This is bad. That young man is too strong. Our people cannot stop him.] Ning Wu Ji raised his talon and aimed it at Zi Dong Lai as he silently passed this message to Li Jian using a technique.
The Headmaster of the Ling Jian House frowned. Glancing at the unstoppable Ling Xian, he responded. [You’re right. That person’s battling abilities is very dominating. Unless a completion-leveled cultivator joins the fight, he cannot be stopped.]
"Then what are we waiting for? I will stop Zi Dong Lai, and you finish that young man off." Ning Wu Ji’s eyes brightened. Both of his hands turned into dragon’s claws, and he attacked even more ruthlessly.
Seeing this, Li Jian retreated and prepared himself to start attacking Ling Xian.
How could Zi Dong Lai let him do this?
"Get back here!"
Zi Dong Lai’s long spear followed Li Jian closely. Forcing his extremely weak physique, he stopped Li Jian.
Li Jian was exasperated. Glancing at Ling Xian, who was on a killing rampage, he was getting impatient. However, very quickly, his face turned excited, and his entire body relaxed.
Because at this critical moment, another completion-leveled Zi Yang Elder collapsed.
This meant there were now two more completion-leveled powerhouses from the two political forces – more than enough to defeat Ling Xian.
"Ling Xian, get the f*ck over here and accept your death!"
An Elder in a black robe shouted and in a flash, appeared before Ling Xian and punched him!
At the same time, another Elder in green inched closer. Forming a hand seal, he planned to kill Ling Xian.
Ling Xian was stunned, but he was not flustered. Facing the attack from two completion levels, he crazily manipulated his Qi and divided them up to defend against the two of them.
Another ear-splitting rumble shocked everyone!
"No wonder he is the victor of the foundational level. He sure is strong!" The Elder in black’s face flashed with shock. Spinning around, he planned to make another move!
At the same time, the Elder in green was trying to suppress the shock he felt, but it did not stop his attacking. On the contrary, his moves grew more aggressive and emotionless!
"Get the f*ck away!"
Ling Xian’s expression was frigidly cold. The Winged Blitz fluttered hastily as he attacked the two completion-leveled powerhouses.
"Hmmph, so what you are the victor of the foundational level? You are merely a foundational after all." The Elder in black smiled in disdain. He easily diminished the attack of the Winged Blitz. Spinning around and moving close, his fragile body exploded with a giant force of power that headed towards Ling Xian.
[I cannot keep on wasting time. The Headmaster cannot hold on much longer. As soon as those two completion cultivators are free, I will be in trouble.]
Ling Xian frowned. He knew very well that he could not entangle himself with these two for much longer. The Halberd of the Divine Warrior shook violently and blasted with an infinite amount of energy that wiped out the two Elders.
At the same time, the Sword of Execution emitted bloody light that turned into hundreds of rays of lights that headed for the two.
This was only the beginning.
"Heaven Shadowing Palm!"
Ling Xian shouted. The sky suddenly dimmed as a gigantic white palm materialized behind the Sun. Using the strength to push through mountains, it smashed forward!
Three different attacks including two transformative qualities and the guiding law were unleashed at once. Ling Xian swore to heavily injure these two completion powerhouses!
However, Ling Xian was a foundational-leveled cultivator after all. No matter how strong he was, he was no opponent of these two.
On top of that, in that battle just now, he incurred some wounds and still used his life to slaughter everyone. He was almost at his limit and was only standing because he forced himself to not show a sign of exhaustion.
Naturally, it was difficult to stop the two completion-leveled Elders.
After a loud explosion, the two Elders made their moves together and destroyed the attacks sent to them. They then took an offensive position to kill Ling Xian here and now.
Ling Xian’s heart fell, knowing that he cannot endure much longer. However, this has gone so far his only option was to continue the rampage if he wanted to survive!
Suppressing down his tiredness and his boiling blood, he used his life to continue fighting against these two completion-leveled powerhouses.
However, no matter how overbearing he was, he was merely a foundational. With his wounds, how could he defend? Within a short while, Ling Xian was already at a disadvantage and was showing signs of losing.
However, for that promise, for the lives of hundreds of cultivators, he has to continue this war despite his failing body.
"He is about to be defeated!"
On top of the mountain valley, an elder suddenly spoke.
"It’s true. He is showing signs of losing. But that is normal. He first fought against two completion, then against thousands of cultivators, now once again two completions. Losing is only natural."
The studious looking man played with his fan. The way he stared at Ling Xian was full of admiration. "This has already surpassed my expectation. I originally thought he was going to die in the battle against Li Jian and Ning Wu Ji. I didn’t think he would survive until now. He really is the victor of the foundational level."
"Yeah, what a heaven-defying monster. This fighting ability can stir jealousy from the entire generation!" A middle-aged man revealed the shock he felt and found it hard to not show his liking for Ling Xian.
"Yes, what a great Heaven’s Favorite. Possibly the best one I’ve encountered in my life." The skinny Elder exclaimed.
Beside him stood a beautiful woman wearing a blue gown.
It was Yan Ning Zhi.
After being teleported out of the Palace of Fortune, she was brought to the mountain valley by this elderly and has been watching Ling Xian intently. Now that he was in danger again, she couldn’t hold it in anymore and hurriedly said to the Elder beside her, "San Ye, please lend him a helping hand."
The white-haired elderly slightly frowned and asked, "Ning Zhi, you know that man?"
"Not only do I know him, but he also saved my life as well." Yang Ning Zhi stared at the bloody Ling Xian, her beautiful eyes shone with heartache and worry. She pleaded, "San Ye, please, I beg you, help him."
The elderly looked at the worried Yan Ning Zhi and silently laughed. "I was going to help him out at a critical moment. But since he has saved your life before, I will make my move earlier."
Then, he formed a seal with his right hand. In an instant, the wind blew, and clouds in the sky parted!
A dazzlingly bright sword roared out of his hand, sliced across the sky, and headed towards the two completion-leveled powerhouses! 5 Best Chinese Romance Books of 2020 So Far
