The lady’s eyes contracted, she did not expect that the person’s sword technique would be so bizarre, completely out of her understanding of sword techniques.
But the woman suddenly stopped her attack on Su Yun, and released the dagger in her hand, which lit up once again, transforming into a thick and viscous solution, quickly flying towards her curved body. It extended out rapidly and in the next moment, it had completely covered the lady’s body, like a layer of sealed armor, without the slightest bit of cracks.
Dang dang dang dang dang.
The Death Sword and Engraved Dragon Blade slashed on it, leaving behind shallow marks, but was unable to cut through.
Seeing that, Su Yun was not discouraged, but instead killing intent flashed past his eyes. He stopped holding back, activating the Monarch Occult Force, Pure Divine Spirit Qi poured out from his various Spirit Essences like a tide, permeating through and transmitting onto the Death Sword and Engraved Dragon Blade. The two swords suddenly emitted very sharp blade lights, breaking out with ominous glints, and suddenly, with overwhelming viciousness they smashed onto the lady.
The two swords directly pierced through.
The armor was broken through, Pure Divine Spirit Qi frantically tearing in all directions.
However, the lady’s reaction was very fast, and the moment the two swords sneaked in, she had separated from the green armor, wanting to retreat. But when she came out, a large foot flew over without courtesy, kicking her at her lower abdomen.
The lady was caught off guard, struck in her lower abdomen, she flew and dropped from the air, like a broken kite.
She anxiously flipped over, both legs landing on the ground, but the pain in her belly had not dissipated, she retreated a few steps, almost falling again, but luckily she stabilised herself.
The guards behind the servants all cried out and rushed forward.
The lady raised her hands, indicating everyone not to act blindly without thinking.
“You’re quite strong! But a pity, you are still not my opponent!”
Su Yun floated down, looking at the lady.
“Not your opponent?” A dense fighting intent soared out from the lady’s eye, and she said: “We have not determined who the winner is between us, come, again!”
Su Yun had managed to make the lady filled with fighting intent, but purposefully rejected to duel. It was not intentional for him to kill the beast, but they unreasonably started to attack him, how could he feel comfortable? Now that the lady wanted to fight him, he naturally would not oblige to it.
With that, he picked up the Death Sword, stepped on it and got ready to leave.
“Don’t think about leaving! FIght with me!”
The lady cried out weakly, she wanted to give chase, but Su Yun quickly left, in a moment he had left the forest.
The young lady who dual wielded the blade and sword ran over and asked: “Are you alright?”
“I am.” She looked towards the direction where Su Yun left, tightly holding onto the jade green ball, and said: “Xiao Xue, go and find out who that is, you must definitely investigate his identity.”
“Young miss, he is just an ignorant and inexperienced person who overestimates himself, we do not need to bicker with him! To not even know the name of ‘Valkyrie’, I think he is some mountain villager.”
“So what if he is a mountain villager? Xiao Xue, you cannot assume seniority based on birth. All living things are equal! ‘Valkyrie’ is just a nickname others have given me, it is nothing much. His strength is unfathomable, his sword technique skill transcends my knowledge, and I was careless, coming in contact with his dao, I now wish to battle with him once again, so I do not feel regret.”
The lady said gently. Although her words were calm, the passion in them was obvious.
The young girl holding the blade and sword called Xiao Xue was annoyed, she pouted: “Young miss, you are so nice, but you are too obsessed with the Martial Dao, if young miss wants to kill him, it will be easy. He was so rude, why be so polite to him.”
“Hearing his voice and his conduct, our age are quite similar, maybe, he is also a seeded participant in the Mountain River List.”
“What seeded participant, young miss will definitely defeat all of them!”
“Alright, let’s not talk too much.” The lady cut Xiao Xue’s words, and returned to her carriage.
“Let us head to Qin Creek.”
Xiao Xue opened her mouth, and sighed: “Hais, yes, young miss.”
Returning back to the city’s inn, Su Yun heaved a sigh of relief.
That treasure of the lady was so weird, it can transform into a blade, a spear, and become a big shield and armor. What treasure is that?”
Su Yun was suspicious, but what made him even more surprised was that the lady could use every type of weapon so adeptly. Her blade, spear and rod techniques were great, she was proficient in all kinds of weapons, since when could any ordinary person use so many weapons?
Not simple, was she here to join the Mountain River List competition as well?
A flash of blazing passion swept past Su Yun’s eyes.
Seems like this Mountain River List is worth anticipating.
“Eh? Brother Wu Yun, did you go out?”
Just then, a clear voice sounded out from the stairs heading to the second floor of the inn. Su Yun turned to look up and realized it was Hong Yan and a few others just about to head downstairs.
“Yes, I went out to walk around.” Su Yun chuckled.
“Such a coincidence, we are preparing to head to the treasure pavilion for a round, and see if there is anything worth buying to prepare for the competition.”
Luo Xiao Miao said.
“Brother Wu Yun, come with us.”
Wang Zhong Shan who was behind walked down and said.
Seeing everyone had that intention, Su Yun did not reject and went along with them.
Just that, the biggest treasure pavilion of the city was already filled with people, the amount of people walking in and out already crushed the gates.
It was not easy to enter the treasure pavilion, and after walking around, they realised that majority of the goods were not selling, and the things that could be used were very few. Feeling insipid, they left.
Su Yun took the chance to sell the materials obtained from the beasts to the treasure pavilion, and obtained a sum of spirit coins.
“There’s nothing much, let us go back to pack up, and will continue the journey tomorrow morning towards Qin Creek.”
Shen Hao said weakly.
No one had any objections, and walked towards the inn on the busy street.
Just then, rays after rays of light swept past above the city, and then a large number of flying swords flew across the horizon. On top of every single sword, stood people dressed in luxurious blademaster clothing who were confident looking.
“Quickly look! Immortal Sword Sect’s people!!”
The spirit cultivators in the city all looked up, shouts were heard everywhere.
“Hehehe, the Imperial Sword Flying Technique is so fun! If only we knew such techniques, we don’t need to ride on those Purple Horned Beasts!”
Shen Hao said jealously.
“There’s nothing much to be jealous about, the Immortal Sword Sect’s Imperial Sword Technique is unique in the whole word, and only they know it.”
Wang Zhong Shan shook his head.
“Hey, this brother of mine, you are wrong, who said that only Immortal Sword Sect knows the Imperial Sword Technique? Didn’t Sword Lord back then use the Imperial Sword Technique as well? And as compared to his, Immortal Sword Sect’s technique looks like a parlor trick as compared to his. What a pity Sword Lord is not here, if not, you think the Immortal Sword Sect people will fly above us?”
A passerby by the side said.
“Sword Lord?” Wang Zhong Shan frowned: “Are you talking about Limitless Sword Lord?”
“Of course, that Sword Lord!” The passerby replied.
“I know I know!” Without waiting for the passerby to speak, Hong Yan started to speak up excitedly: “I know a lot about Limitless Sword Lord. It was rumored that he can control a thousand swords whose power is unfathomable, his strength is astonishing, and the fight at Wu Shuang Jue Peak, he slashed Immortal Sword Sect’s Great Clan Elder Shen Hong and Su Family Great Clan Elder. With his strength, he need not be afraid of even the Immortal Sword Sect Patriarch, and and, it was said that after the fight at Wu Shuang Jue Peak, he went on to challenge the patriarchs of the various different families and sects in Jue Lian Region, with no loss at all! His strength is unparalleled, and have instigated the panic and fear of the patriarchs of the various sects and families, resulting in the matter at Blossom Heart Valley.”
Hong Yan was like a chatterbox, upon starting, she would not stop. She continued to talk about Limitless Sword Lord’s matters, and people who have heard of him but not familiar with him immediately walked over, listening to Hong Yan’s words, and occasionally would release exclamations in fear or surprise.
Wang Zhong Shan and the rest listened attentively, Su Yun was at the back blushing with shame. Hong Yan’s words were all tales, where many of the things mentioned, even he did not know about.
“It is said that the Sword Lord is very young, is that true?”
Just then, Luo Xiao Miao suddenly asked.
Hong Yan spoke slowly while nodding: “Yes, it is said that his name is Su Yun, an outer sect disciple of the Su Family.”
“Outer sect disciple?” Luo Xiao Miao thought for a while, and said: “That means his cultivation time is definitely not past 30 years right?”
“That? Should be.”
“Then why didn’t the Mountain River List seeded participants choose him?”
“Hais.” Hong Yan sighed, and said: “After the incident at Blossom Heart Valley, the Sword Lord went somewhere where no one knows. The Mountain River List was unable to even communicate with him. Furthermore, some people said that he has connections with the Demon Dao and Spirit Demon Dao, and even more people said he had already died. No one truly knows, and because of this, he was not chosen! Oh right, more importantly, people thought that the only reason he was able to do such awe-inspiring deeds was because he relied on treasures. Without them, his strength would be weak, and so, many people were against choosing him as a seeded participant.”
Su Yun: “…”
“Is that right, forget it forget it, let’s not think too much, everyone, let us go.”
Luo Xiao Miao shook his head, not wanting to think further.
No one else discussed it anymore and quickened their pace back to their inn.
When they returned to the inn, they packed up and retrieved their Purple Horned Beast, directly sprinting out of the city and headed towards the center of Wen Xian region.
On the road, there were all sorts of spirit cultivators.
There was the Immortal Sword Sect who flew with their Imperial Sword Technique, there were spirit cultivators who rode on Purple Horned Beasts and Single Horned Bulls, and some even of the more special sects, like the Tai Xu Monastery who rode on their bottle gourds, disciples of Green Hills Sect who rode the winds, and disciples of Gazing Sky Pavilion that leaped a thousand miles etc.
At the moment, all of the spirit cultivators were rushing over, regardless if they were sects or rogue cultivators, everyone was converging at Qin Creek.
No one knew what kind of opponent they would face, but, as long as they could attend the event in Qin Creek, it was already a proof of strength.
Su Yun followed the group and continued to advance, looking left and right and sizing up all the spirit cultivators he met.
“Hey, Brother Wu Yun, can I ask you a question?”
Just then, Hong Yan who was ahead suddenly slowed down, and came beside Su Yun.
“What?” Su Yun retracted his gaze and looked at Hong Yan.
Hong Yan pointed to the blood red Immortal Mystical Scarlet Blood Sword on Su Yun’s back and asked: “What is this sword for? Why haven’t I seen you use it yet?”
Su Yun was at a loss for words, then laughed awkwardly: “I cannot always use it, and currently I am having difficulties controlling it.”
“Is it a treasure? Brother Wu Yun, since you can use so many swords, is your sword technique powerful?”
“Ha, only so so.”
“Oh right, just now, why didn’t brother Wu Yun go and greet the Immortal Sword Sect disciples? And more importantly, why are you not travelling with them?”
Hong Yan asked further.
Su Yun awkwardly laughed again, he did not know how to answer, but he started to frown.
Everything was fine, why did Hong Yan suddenly come over and ask so many questions?
“We are here!”
Just then, a shout came out from the front.
