“Be careful! Everyone, even if that is the Sovereign King Sword, there might be some dangerous traps or an ambush.”
Seeing that they had been on a bountiful path the entire time, the Evil Realm people were losing all of their prudence, Su Yun could no longer hold it in and shouted.
A few Evil Realm people turned and looked at him.
“We know!” One of the Evil Realm person replied lazily.
“Kid, you better stand by the side to watch, anyways even if there truly was danger, you cannot do anything.”
“You’re lucky to be able to walk in here already, don’t obstruct us!”
A few Evil Realm people laughed, then turned their heads and walked towards the big pathway.
The group checked their surroundings a few times, and after realising that there were no problems, Li Xin brought two Evil Realm people with high cultivation to the pathway with many sculptures.
Li Xin and the other two exchanged eye contact, then she took out three lumps of blood red meat objects from her storage ring, and gave one to each of them, following that they started to chant.
The meat pieces started to glow with a light.
Li Xin and the other two immediately threw the meat forward.
The moment it left their hands, the meat pieces transformed into 3 figures. Taking a closer look, the 3 of them looked exactly like Li Xin and the other two.
“Body Stand in technique?” Su Yun was secretly surprised.
He had never seen such a technique before. The Evil Realm truly was strange beyond anyone’s imagination.
“This is the Evil Realm’s body replication technique.”
Just then, Ling Qing Yu’s voice came out from the Sword Sheath.
“What technique is that?”
“It is a simple yet not simple technique, they are using special beast meat pieces to transform into them, then they attach their soul onto the bodies through a technique, borrowing the body to investigate the road. But when the body is destroyed, their souls would quickly fly back to their original bodies.”
Hearing that, Su Yun watched at Li Xin and the other two real bodies, truly, they did not move at all, standing frozen there, while the three replicas made from the meat started to walk down the big path.
Just that, the three of them walked forward cautiously, the sculptures all stood unmoving beside them, but did not seem to be strange. There were no movements, no sounds, the entire hall was deadly quiet.
Was there truly no danger? Everyone was just overthinking?
“Hey, what are all of you doing?”
Just at this time, a loud and clear sound suddenly swept the entire vast hall, as though everyone’s mind was shaken, all of them anxiously looking around to find the source of the sound, only to see a young man dressed in red and black striped chinese gown rushing out from behind the stone coffin, seeing the group of Evil Realm people, he shouted out.
“What? You’re an Evil Realm person?”
“Why are the Evil Realm people here?”
“Who are you??”
The Evil Realm people all gathered together, and shouted to question.
Li Xin and the other two immediately stopped their replicating technique and returned to their own bodies. Looking at the man seated by the side of the coffin, they shouted out: “Who are you, state your name!”
“Who am I? Heh!” The young man raised one leg over the other, and laughed: “Shouldn’t I be asking you all that? Who are you guys? Why are you all here? Do you know what this place is?”
“Isn’t this place our Evil Sword Sect’s Secret Palace?”
One of the Evil Realm person shouted.
“What Evil Sword Sect? What Secret Palace? This master has never heard of it before!” The young man snorted: “I only know that, this is my master’s place of slumber! You all dare to barge in here, you all deserve to die! Now, I will transform all of you into sculptures, and forever accompany my master!!”
“Transform us into statues?”
Li Xin was startled, then her gaze turned to the sculptures, seeing their looks, instantly, Li Xin’s eyes spewed fire.
“All these people are actually our Evil Sword Sect disciples! You… You, what are you!?”
“What? Senior sister, these sculptures are disciples of our Evil Sword Sect?”
“Ah!! Isn’t this our senior brother Cheng who went missing 4 years ago? Why is he here?”
“This is senior sister Zhang!”
“Despicable, all these people are our fellow members of the Evil Sword Sect who came here for the test, but they were all transformed into statues by that asshole!!”
“They don’t have Qi anymore!”
“We must take revenge for them!”
“Yes, kill him, and suck his Evil Soul! This despicable man, his Evil Soul must be extremely strong!!”
The Evil Realm people all shouted in anger, all their black evil faces were savage and sinister.
“Everyone, don’t be rash.”
Li Xin was not as drowned with anger than them, holding onto her calm, she noticed that the sculptures were all junior disciples, and looked like they were all young and tender people with insufficient power.
Suddenly, a low sound resonated out from behind them.
They then suddenly saw the dilapidated stone door suddenly moving on its own and sealing shut, a grey light covering the entrance that looked like a protective screen.
Seeing that, Li Xin’s face changed.
“Not good, senior sister, the exit has been shut!”
“It must be him, what is he trying to do? Is he going to kill all of us?”
The questions and remarks all did not stop, but, the Evil Realm people did not panic, but instead became even more sinister, seeing the situation, they were prepared to fight with the man to the death.
“You are all like these people!” The young man wearing the chinese gown laughed, his eyes exposing a thread of craziness: “I know, none of you are willing to keep watch over my master. But that’s fine. I will personally take action, and make all of you guard my master, for eternity!”
With that, the young man’s entire body suddenly transformed into black water, floating into the sky, directly going to cover them.
“Be careful, quickly split!” Li Xin shouted.
Everyone urgently scuttled away. However, one of them was not able to react in time, and was enveloped by the black water. Everyone else then saw that inside the black water, a grey whitish soul was being pulled out of the body, and then devoured by the black water.
When the black water left the Evil Realm person’s body, he had already turned into stone, becoming a sculpture.
Swallowing the spirit and transforming the physical body! So cruel!
Su Yun who was at the side secretly exclaimed.
He was using the Heavenly Scale Divine Eye to survey the scene, the person was at the tenth stage Spirit Soul Cultivator realm, so the Evil Realm people would have difficulty winning against him.
It seemed that he had to take action as well, if not, he would die in here.
In such a short time, Li Xin saw a fellow disciple brother die, and her heart became cold. At the same time, anger was burning inside of her.
“I will not spare you!”
She clenched her teeth, her Evil Qi releasing in huge amounts, directly rushing straight to the black water, wishing to combat with him.
“Senior sister! I will assist you!”
“Ants! Taste my moves!”
All of the Evil Realm people knew to retreat but did not, because they knew they had to fight all out, and thus rushed forward.
Evil swords were all released, a large quantity of sword images surrounded the man, the dense and frightening evil force was like a tornado devastating the entire place.
Su Yun took down the Death Sword from his back, one hand holding the sword scabbard, one hand holding the sword hilt, waiting to take action, standing at the side and finding the right opportunity.
Suddenly, a loud laugh sounded out.
“Hahahaha, you guys are just bullying me in numbers right? But it’s ok, I have numbers too!!”
WIth that said, tremors after tremors of Evil Realm language erupted, following the sounds of ‘kacha kacha’, and then the sculptures by the sides all started to move.
Li Xin was shocked.
The sculptures all rushed forth, using their hard stone fists to fiercely hammer down on the Evil Realm people.
The Evil Realm people were at a disadvantage in terms of individual strength, but made up for it with their numbers, so all of them were able to support each other. But when the weird sculptures all joined in the fight, the situation became different, and the pressure on Li Xin and her men immediately amplified.
Even Su Yun was not taking it well, he saw an old looking man suddenly walking towards him, with it’s heavy footsteps causing the ground to shake.
The sculpture was a first stage Spirit Soul Cultivator, he did not have much evil force, but his strength was immense, similar to True Divine Spirit Qi.
Su Yun retreated a few steps, his hand holding on the sword hilt, ready to make his move.
The sculpture released a shout, then pounced onto him.
The stored up Profound Spirit Qi was suddenly released by the Death Sword, thrusting over.
Sou sou sou sou
The Death Sword came out of its scabbard and struck, along with 10 other flying swords that flew out as well, straight to the sculpture’s chest.
Just like a ferocious dragon flying out to attack!
The sword lights flickered, and swords were flying everywhere.
The sculpture’s stone skin was cut into pieces, his chest had a huge hole, and directly fell to the ground dead, evil blood spilt all over the floor.
Although the sculpture was a body inside, Su Yun knew, Zhang Jiu had also become like that.
He lifted the Death Sword up, and once against rushed up to attack, helping Li Xin and the rest, at this time, something dropped.
Su Yun looked to the body that resembled an old man, his skin was black, wrinkled all around, had not completely rotted, but on his waist was a hanging Order badge.
A high ranking Evil Sword Sect Order Badge!
“Could that person be an elder of the Evil Sword Sect?”
Suddenly, Su Yun saw a storage ring, it belonged to the elder.
“Good stuff! Su Yun, quickly go take it! There are definitely treasures inside!!” Ling Qing Yu’s anxious voice came out from the Sword Sheathe.
Su Yun was not a honest noble either, so why not take advantage of what was on scene? Since He immediately cut off the finger that had the ring, and obtained the storage ring for himself, throwing it into his own storage ring.
Dong dong dong
Just then, three loud explosion sounds came out. Su Yun turned to take a look, only to see Li Xin and a few others flying out, all of them fiercely hitting the ground. The young man dressed in the chinese gown, his entire body was covered with evil rays, his eyes was red and black, an array technique beneath his feet, his Qi soaring greatly, and in a short time, he actually reached the peak tenth stage of the Spirit Soul Realm.
The sculptures were being crumbled into pieces by the others, the bodies all dropped, but the young man could not die, and everyone felt that they were heading towards defeat.
Li Xin and the rest were all angry, they wanted to stand up, but there were people dying everywhere, and due to getting injured, no one had any strength left to fight.
The entire vast hall was completely in the control of the young man, his power was definitely not something Li Xin and her men could contend against.
“Hahahaha, all of you have destroyed the sculptures that I have prepared for Master for so many years, so all of you will replace them, and protect my master, hahahaha!”
The young man laughed out loud, as though he was crazy.
“I can’t drag it out any longer.”
Su Yun thought, and stepped forward.
His footsteps were extremely ear piercing as they thumped on the ground.
“Su Yun, what are you doing? This is the Secret Palace, a place that cannot injure anyone without the Evil Sword Technique. Once you reveal the Evil Sword Technique, won’t you divulge the secret?”
“There is still a bottomline for taking things and stealing mystical techniques, the Evil Sword Sect people are not bad to me, and if I do not save them, then that would have crossed my bottom line. And if I don’t make a move, I too will die.”
Su Yun said, holding Death Sword and walking towards the young man.
“Stinking brat, find a way to leave, you coming here is simply giving your life away!”
Seeing that Su Yun was walking over, an Evil Realm person shouted out.
“Thank you, but I am sick of running in this life.”
Su Yun raised his head, under the pitch black cape, he exposed a laugh that contained a trace of unswerving determination.
He raised his hand, instigated his Evil Profound Spirit Qi, with it rushing to his stomach.
Just then, a strange rock suddenly burst forth with an exploding light.
