Chapter 50: A Resolute Person’s Revenge is Ten Years
“Limitless Sword God?”
Su Xiao sluggishly looked at the person in front of his eyes. He was wearing black robes and a partially broken mask covered his face. He could not help but tremble a bit as he analyzed the situation.
“Why did you flee?” The mysterious figure asked.
Su Xiao clenched his fists and looked over to the left. He did not want to expose his tears to Limitless Sword God. He grudgingly answered, “Even adding me into the fray, we could never be Su Xuan Yuan’s opponent. Not to mention my injured arm, by continuing, we would only be annihilated. Only by preserving my life will I be able to have my revenge. A resolute person’s revenge comes in ten years.” (Tl: idiom: meaning not to be impatient to get revenge)
“This time, you do not need to wait ten years. I have come to kill!”
As the Limitless Sword God said this, he suddenly rushed forth and ran towards Su Xuan Yuan’s direction.
“Kill?” Su Xiao was stunned.
He hastily tried to sense Limitless Sword God’s aura attribute, and it was an extremely domineering and sharp aura. It was similar to Swift Wind Aura, but it was much quicker….and even more powerful.
However, it did not count as a powerful cultivation level; so, in total, the figure was at most a spirit intermediate disciple, even though the killing intent he emitted was very fierce. Nonetheless….did he have some kind of grudge with Su Xuan Yuan?
Furthermore….just what was his objective?
Whatever. I do not care!
Su Xiao gritted his teeth.
The intense hatred in his heart was burning for the disciples. Su Han Xiang’s death may have caused him to collapse mentally, but it did not make irrational. There wasn’t a chance before, but now, the opportunity for revenge had come.
Su Xiao made his decision and, with a determined look, he said, “Han Xiang, I will trust him this one time. Even if I lose, it is no big deal. I will sacrifice myself for you!”
Resolved, Su Xiao endured the piercing pain as he used his own blade to slice off the remaining part of his nearly torn off arm. The one armed disciple rushed forth, following Limitless Sword God.
As for the person called Limitless Sword God, when he approached Su Xuan Yuan’s position, his hands suddenly flashed with movement. He had drawn a large, glowing, dragon-engraved blade from his sheath.
One could see him pull out a blade flower, which caused a strange aroma to reappear. It began to cover the blade, making it like a cocoon. Soon after, he raised the blade up.
Sword Qi flew out from his blade, like an arrow released from a bow, it aimed straight for Su Xuan Yuan.
As this sharp sword qi appeared, Su Xuan Yuan sensed that someone had appeared. As he looked at the arriving people, his face flashed a look of surprise. However, soon after, he sneered, “Come on. Come on. Looking at your spirit power, it doesn’t amount to much. Yes, it is not nearly enough. What’s more, I still have not killed enough people!”
After he said this, he hastily shifted to the right a few steps and slashed away the grappling Su Jian. He pushed him towards Su Hong Xiu, while he raised his own blade and his spirit power exploded forth. He was rushing towards the sword qi strike.
As the sword qi strike was hit in mid air, it flew off in the air.
“I have never seen an enemy so easily discard their weapon when facing an opponent. You are the first one!” Su Xuan Yuan licked his dry lips as he gazed at Su Yun with strong killing intent.
He equipped his Huan blade and quickly stepped in Su Yun’s direction. His blade pointing down and dripping with blood from the tip, it was a frightening sight.
But this time.
He suddenly stopped and slowed his pace.
He only saw the figure raised his hand. Then both hands made a gesture, which seemed to resemble a signal.
“Is it a spirit skill?”
Su Xuan Yuan’s brows knitted as he had a bad feeling. He soon accelerated his pace and rushed forth.
As he and his blade were getting closer to their target, the mysterious man’s killing aura was becoming more and more terrifying.
The man wearing the broken iron mask, carrying the sword sheath stood motionless, still….
He closed his eyes.
Did he disregard his defence?
“Did he have some secret move?” Su Xuan Yuan’s heart tensed, but soon he abandoned his concern. “This kid is not even a spirit intermediate disciple, what do I have to fear? Die!”
Hu! ! !
The Huan Blade seemed to have roared as it was shrouded in spirit power. He was planning to cut Su Yun in half with this blade starting from the forehead.
This blade, was he really aiming to cut him in half?
At this moment, a sharp spirit sword strike swept over.
It was like a thousand needles striking directly in Su Xuan Yuan’s back.
He stiffened as he stopped his action. His complexion changed and he let go of his Huan blade. Soon, his whole body was full of pain.
The blade from before which had seemingly flown away had come back. The dragon-engraved blade actually pierced Su Xuan Yuan from behind, directly through the heart.
Su Xuan Yuan directly coughed up blood as he faced the mysterious man in the black robes.
As he glared at this man, he suddenly noticed something.
The main blade that he used to kill was actually this blade! However this blade….wasn’t it flung away?
“Damn! Damn! I will kill you!”
Su Xuan Yuan utilized the last bit of his will and fiercely activated his spirit power for one last-ditch attack. He quickly readied his blade.
However, the mysterious man only raised his foot and firmly kicked Su Xuan Yuan straight in the chest.
Su Xuan Yuan was sent flying from the kick. The move also caused his heart to burst open; so, as his corpse spun through the air, his chest was completely ripped open. When his body crashed, it was accompanied by a large amount of bloodied entrails and flesh….the fire, which had momentarily started from the strike, was quickly extinguished as he tumbled onto the ground.
Su Xuan Yuan trembled a few times as he lay on the ground. Then he died.
On the other side, Su Hong Xiu was alarmed as she witnessed the situation.
“Who are you?!” Su Hong Xiu panically shouted.
However, the iron masked man simply ignored her. After finishing up with Su Xuan Yuan, he was heading straight towards the location of the others. The strange flying blade was also flying with him, aiming straight for her.
When had Su Hong Xiu seen this divine blade technique? She had heard the the Immortal Sword Sect had many techniques like this, which were unheard of. As she saw the flying blade aiming straight for her, she bolted off like an arrow shot from a crossbow.
The other three accomplices did not hesitate to abandon their assault as they witnessed the situation. They all turned around and fled.
Although they still had higher numbers, as Su Hong Xiu analyzed the situation, she was certain that, if they fought, they would not be opponents for the terrifying enemy.
Su Yun never wanted them to escape. The engraved dragon blade shrouded in Spirit Lord Aura was very quick and immediately closed off the distance. In an instant, it cut through one disciple and pierced right through his head.
At this time, Su Xiao finally caught up. He ran like a madman and rushed in front of the mysterious figure. He tried to stall the fleeing disciples without any regard for his own life.
Su Hong Xiu fled with more speed as she saw Su Xiao gaining on her. She saw the flying blade behind her head cut her shoulder and caused a wound. Su Xiao relentlessly used this opportunity to launch his attack. Su Yun’s sword made another turn to her head, and Su Hong Xiu was also beheaded.
The remaining two could not escape the power of the flying blade and, naturally, they also died.
In an instant, the death match was already over.
This area was now bathed in the blood of the dead disciples.
The smell of blood in the air even overshadowed the revolting aroma that emitted naturally from Martial Bone Mountain.
Su Yun lightly flicked his hand and the controlled engraved dragon blade flew towards the everlasting sheath. The blade blurred through the air and crashed straight into the sheath. In a blink of an eye, it disappeared.
Su Jian had already bled to death, Su Lao was still alive, but he couldn’t fight anymore. It was probable that they would not be able to last past the next day in Martial Bone Mountain.
Su Xiao gazed at Su Hong Xiu’s body with lackluster eyes. Those disciples were now lying dead on the ground. They had lost all their lives.
The revenge was completed, but how could it be enough? Everything was already lost.
Su Yun’s eyes swept past him, but did not say anything. He combed through the battlefield and search for Blood Jade Crystals from the corpses of Su Hong Xiu and their group.
After everything was looted, Su Yun was ready to leave.
As he neared Su Lao’s resting place, he paused for a moment to think. Then he took at a bottle of healing pills and placed it beside the weakened disciple. Then he quickly left.
Although Su Yun was not a good man, he still had principles.
This individual had truly helped them in a life and death crisis. How many people were like this in the real world? Su Jian or even Su Lao, both disciples were grateful in their hearts.
“Wait!” Just as Su Yun was about to leave, Su Xiao suddenly shouted.
Su Yun momentarily paused in his steps, but he did not say anything.
“Why me?” Su Xiao nervously asked.
Su Yun just remained silent and did not say a word.
“I will remember the kindness, Limitless Sword God!”
Although these words did not mean much, but they were very heartfelt.
“Then you must make sure to remember yours words!” As he said this, the man walked away.
Soon he disappeared.
In fact, helping Su Xiao was also Su Yun’s intention.
After facing off with Su Xuan Yuan’s group, he still had combat reserves remaining. When Su Yun took action, it would have been difficult to stall them. However, with Su Xiao’s help, it was a different story.
Secondly, he saw himself in Su Xiao’s predicament. Hopelessness, helplessness….Intense thirst for revenge.
Perhaps, it was the trust that Su Jian and Su Luo had for Su Xiao, which he admired.
Su Yun did not care, maybe he did not want this outcome for the future, but at least he got what he wanted.
After removing all the supplies from the bodies, he had accumulated a total of two hundred and eleven Blood Jade Crystals! This accounted for two percent of the total crystals needed. It was already sufficient to exchange for qualifications to enter the inner sect.
But this was still not enough, he needed at least….another two hundred crystals.
Could he obtain more from killing disciples?
This obviously wouldn’t work. After all, he was just one person. Alone, he was pretty much just another prey.
Besides that, wasn’t there a law?
Su Yun gazed toward the peaks of Martial Bone Mountain….
The only choice was to gather from there.
Half a day later.
A piece of Blood Jade Crystal was mined out from the rocks Su Yun was at.
Su Yun smiled, “I never thought that Martial Bone Mountain would actually have so many Blood Jade Crystals. With some effort for half a day, I already mined nine pieces!”
He quickly threw the pieces into his spatial ring and already looked around. Then he fled to some grass growing to the sides of some outcropping rocks. He cautiously moved to look for more.
Here, in the valleys of Martial Bone Mountain, a myriad of places produced Blood Jade Crystals. Nonetheless, it was very dangerous. It wasn’t the demonic beasts, but because of people like Su Xuan Yuan, disciples with evil intentions. If he ran into them, there was no guarantee that he could even escape with his life.
Ta ta ta ta….
Then, the surrounding area suddenly burst with mild and rapid footsteps.
Su Yun stiffened and quickly laid down. He became completely motionless.
He saw a number of outer sect disciples rushing towards his current location at a rapid pace. They were panting as if they were escaping from something. Nobody seemed to notice the person hidden in the grass as they rushed past.
Very quickly, this group of disciples had left.
However, a few seconds had just passed, a bloodied inner sect disciple arrived. Then he left, chasing after the outer sect disciples.
Looking at the killing intent in his eyes, Su Yun had already understood the situation.
Despite that, Su Yun was still confounded by why the inner sect disciples did not band together. Why were they supposed to help the outer sect disciples anyway?
Until they left, Su Yun continued to lurk in his hiding place.
As he decided to move after a stick of essence, he met a disciple of fourth stage spirit intermediate cultivation.
To avoid a battle, he quickly made a detour.
On the way, he saw many corpses of the disciples from the Su Family. Some of the beasts were feeding, some corpses were mutilated, and some were plundered by others. Most of them were covered with not the slightest trace of supplies.
At the places where there were corpses, there would probably be no place to mine any Blood Jade Crystals. So once Su Yun saw some bodies, he would immediately change his direction and seek elsewhere.
After two days passed, he had finally obtained ten more pieces.
Nonetheless, over time, the Blood jade Crystals within Martial Bone Mountain would become scarce. If one wanted to mine it, it would become very difficult.
Other than murdering other disciples for their crystals, there was no other way.
Because of the intruding disciples, plus the constant battles and their casualties, many of the demonic beasts sleeping with Martial Bone Mountain had awoken. They became active throughout the eerie mountains.
Every single day, the number of outer sect disciples ending up in the mouths of demonic beasts were not few. For the inner sect disciples, it was a little better. After the seventh day, six inner sect disciples had died.
No one would have expected that this trial would turn into a survival of the fittest competition.
The outskirts of the Martial Bone Mountain were already sealed off. It would take another ten more days before they opened. Since Su Shi Long issued the order, who from the inner sect would dare object?
As Su yun wandered through the hills a few times, he did not see Blood Jade Crystals anymore. He could not help but sigh. He was deciding whether it was better to find a place to hide and just wait for this trial to end?
At this time, not far away from him, a few turbulent sounds were made. It was soon followed by a lot of trees crashing down and smoke billowing into the air.
Was there a fight?
Su Yun’s eyes gazed at the origin. After pondering for a few moments, he carefully closed in towards the source of the sound.
