Sovereign King (III)
Without spending a day, everyone had reached the Ling Tai Spring. It resembled a villa, where the evil water inside the Ling Tai Spring was already surrounded by a large number of walls. The walls were imprinted with many arrays, and a large screen covered the entire Ling Tai Spring.
At that moment, there were 8 Evil Realm people guarding the Ling Tai Spring.
Zi Xie and Zhang Jiu Liu kept shifting their gaze, Zhang Jiu Liu understood, and quickly ran to the protective screen, taking out scissors that were filled with Evil Qi, cutting the screen, a hole quickly appearing.
Su Yun watched in amazement, to be able to quietly break through a part of the powerful screen, and not cause any movements or changes to the screen as though it was nothing, the scissors must also be a treasure.
After creating an opening, Zi Xie used an unknown treasure, a purple colored light ball covering all of them, covering all their Qi, and then they slipped in.
Zi Xie had plotted for this mission and was extremely prepared, all the information was within her fingertips, she knew the location and map of the Ling Tai Spring, including the locations of every guard, and very quickly, everyone had already reached the Ling Tai Spring.
The Ling Tai Spring was actually a gigantic black colored pool of water. The water had bubbles spurting out, with black Qi growling and rolling inside. If the color was clear, then it would be considered a warm spring.
“Such rich Evil Qi, this Ling Tai spring is definitely special. The power inside must be extremely rich, if we were to be submerged in it for a day, I wonder what benefits we would have!”
Zhang Jiu Liu stooped down, scooping some of the water.
“The results of the water and the dual cultivation, the cultivation speed must truly be extremely fast! The Almighty Being sure knows how to enjoy! I heard he have 10 over dual cultivation companions to service him” Wang Zi Wu said with envy.
Su Yun and Feng Lin Lang did not say a word, their gaze on the water surface.
Zhang Jiu Liu glanced over and asked: “Zi Xie, what are you preparing to do?”
Zi Xie took out a large pile of materials from her own storage ring, and then threw it on the ground and said: “Create a seal at every corner, then use an array to cover them well. And then, we will go outside to create another array. Borrowing the power of this array, we can displace ourselves and change positions. In that moment, we can kill the almighty being!”
“Displacement technique? You know of such an array?” Feng Lin Lang was obviously startled. This type of space displacement technique was extremely high level, regardless of what realm it was, and normal people would definitely have no way of learning it, and treasures that involved space or displacement were all rare treasures.
“I traded all of my treasures for this displacement array technique, this array technique requires specific objects to be used, and that are the materials to creating this array. The materials are difficult to find, and we can only use it once, which also means, we can only use it once from the outside to displace in, so this displacement array is still considered weak, but at the moment, it is the most important array technique for us!”
Zi Xie said.
Who knew how much preparation she had done for the operation.
“Then, that’s all?” Zhang Jiu Liu asked again.
“Of course not!”
Zi Xie took out a green bottle from her storage ring which was sealed up tightly. Following that, she poured the contents into the Ling Tai Spring.
When the liquid entered the spring, it immediately dissipated without a trace. No color, no taste, no smell… Nothing.
“This is the ‘Thousand Lives Venom’, and can temporarily paralyze the Spirit Essence of a spirit cultivator, and cause them to be unable to produce Profound Spirit Qi. All existence beneath the Spirit Star Realm are unable to withstand this poison, so as long as the almighty being enters the Ling Tai spring, I will take his life!”
Zi Xie’s expression was sinister.
“Hahahaha Zi Xie, I have underestimated you, I never thought you would have such capabilities. The almighty being is bound to die this time!”
Wang Zhi Wu laughed out loudly.
They immediately began to prepare, Zi Xie had grasped the time, while the rest laid the arrays quickly. In a short while, the four corners of the Ling Tai spring was covered with their displacement array. The purple Evil Screen Qi started to disappear, and they immediately slept away.
After leaving for not long, the guards of the Ling Tai Spring went to the scene, only seeing the place empty and normal.
The displacement array was done, everyone went about 1 km away from the array and started to construct another array. Zi Xie was like Su Yun, keeping the last material for the array. When both sides of the array was completed, it would release a rich Qi which was difficult to cover up, where even the Purple Evil Screen would not be able to hide, so they could only wait until the last moment, before injecting the material inside.
After which, everybody sat to meditate.
“One more day and the Three Link almighty being would enter the Ling Tai Spring. Get ready, everybody. We must exterminate him this time!”
Zi Xie’s eyes was filled with utmost confidence.
“Rascal, you shall arrange an escape route for us! We’ll make use of the displacement array to enter the Ling Tai spring. You shall settle the guards and plan out an escape route for us! Understood?”
Wang Zhi Er threw the empty bottle of wine aside as he shouted towards Su Yun.
Su Yun nodded his head.
Everybody discussed and started to meditate.
The surrounding was very quiet.
Time was slipping by.
Another two hours had passed. The decisive battle was approaching. According to the schedule, the Three Link almighty being would enter the Ling Tai spring at this time.
“Zi Xie!” Just then, Zhang Jiu Liu spoke out.
“What?” Zi Xie opened her eyes from meditating and looked at Zhang Jiu Liu in a daze.
“It’s almost time. I’ll go check out the situation. I’ll see how many people the Three Link almighty being brought with him into the Ling Tai Spring. This way, we can have some idea when we attack.”
Zhang Jiu Liu replied.
Zi Xie thought for a moment. Then she nodded: “Actually, I would have gone to check it out on my own but since you’ve said that, please go ahead!”
“Alright! Wait for my news!” Zhang Jiu Liu immediately flashed away.
“Pay attention to your safety.”
Zhang Jiu Liu nodded his head, and immediately ran.
Su Yun opened half of his eyes to see Zhang Jiu Liu leaving hastily. He lowered his head to think and shook his head lightly.
Feng Lin Lang and Wang Zhi Er was completely engrossed in recuperating to adjust themselves to their optimal state as they await for the big fight.
If the ingredients Zi Xie prepared could be put to use, without a doubt, everybody could settle this once and for all but if the ‘Thousand Lives Venom’ she obtained was of no use, then they would have to give up on this mission. Although there was a slight chance to fight five against one, but the Three Link almighty being would be surrounded by experts. It was definitely impossible to last long in the fight. They had to do it fast and quick.
Half an hour later, a streak of black smoke floated up.
Everybody stood up as they looked at the incoming black smoke.
As the black smoke fell to the ground and disappeared, Zhang Jiu Liu’s silhouette appeared in front of them.
“What did you find?”
Zi Xie asked anxiously.
“Good news!” Zhang Jiu Liu smiled and added quickly: “This time, the Three Link almighty being only brought the usual ten over dual companions and another two seventh stage Spirit Soul Cultivators! He did not bring anyone else!”
“What? Just two person?”
“Are you sure you saw it correctly?”
“Yes, I am sure!” Zhang Jiu Liu replied.
Wang Zhi Er slapped on his thighs as he exclaimed: “Great! Hahaha, the Heavens are helping me! Now even God can’t save that little lad Three Link. Hahahaha”
“Jiu Liu, is what you said the truth?” Zi Xie could not contain her excitement. If what Zhang Jiu Liu said was real, then the risk was much smaller.
Zhang Jiu Liu laughed: “I saw it personally. I didn’t believe it initially so I spun around and realised the Three Link almighty being had not a single person from Three Link city around him. I’m very sure he only brought those few people!”
“The heaven is truly helping us!” Zi Xie exhaled deeply before he turned to Su Yun and Feng Lin Lang. She called out: “Seems like we can push our mission earlier.”
“The Three Link almighty being is probably now in the Ling Tai Spring. He must be getting into the water now. We shall wait for a while more before we activate the displacement array and enter the Ling Tai Spring!” Zhang Jiu Liu stated.
“Let’s go!” Wang Zhi Er was already impatient.
Feng Lin Lang and Su Yun still remained silent.
The two’s reactions shocked the other three.
“Feng Lin Lang, why aren’t you guys talking?”
Feng Lin Lang’s gaze was unsteady. He stood up, thought for a tad bit and still, chose to remain silent.
Just then, Su Yun decided to speak up.
“I suggest not to use the displacement array to enter the Ling Tai spring.”
With that, everybody was taken aback.
“Why not?” Zi Xie was confused.
Su Yun raised his finger and pointed to Zhang Jiu Liu: “Since his words are true, then we shall enter from the front. Then, we will use the displacement array to escape. There are only two experts, the defense must be weak. We can enter easily. This array can only be used once. Since that’s the case, isn’t it better to use it to escape?”
“Use it to escape?”
Zi Xie pondered before she nodded: “Your suggestion works too.”
“No!” Zhang Jiu Li bellowed.
Everybody turned to look at him.
Pearls of sweat trickled down his forehead. His expression looked unnatural: “Zi Xie, with just us three alone, we can kill the Three Link almighty being. If we don’t use this to make a sudden entrance, how are we going to murder the almighty being? If we rush in from the front, we have to deal with the experts guarding the door. I’m afraid when we are done those guards, Three Link almighty being would have probably escaped.”
“You’re right too but, this array is definitely more suited to use it as an escape route than to enter the Ling Tai spring. Moreover, we can also sneak into the Ling Tai spring, right?”
Zi Xie spoked before she shrugged and said: “Let’s go. We’ll set off now to the Ling Tai Spring. Stop fighting now. Let’s go!”
Wang Zhi Er, Feng Lin Lang nodded and followed Zi Xie in advancing. Su Yun chased up.
Zhang Jiu Liu eye’s sparkled as he clenched his fist tightly. But he did not say another word. He followed them along.
Very quickly, they arrived near the Ling Tai Spring.
Zi Xie brought the rest to hide in a corner as she instigated a mystical technique. Everybody’s gaze tensed up as they set their gaze at the Ling Tai spring.
Then, in a blink of an eye, an unsettling scene unfolded right in front of their eyes.
When they looked at the Ling Tai Spring, a body of an evil person laid motionlessly. The evil person’s body was turning green as he struggled to gasp for air as though he was going to die.
Zi Xie observed and in her eyes, gold radiance was beaming out. Immediately, she leaped out from the hide out.
“The Three Link almighty being has been struck! Everybody, follow me in and kill him!”
