The Last Battle
The grave sounding wail exploded out as Sun Zhi Miao’s arm was sliced off by the Engraved Dragon Blade. With blood spewing out, it was so painful that he fell to the ground and rolled about endlessly.
Even before he rolled around there for a few seconds, Su Yun extended his arm, grabbing the Engraved Dragon Blade while staring at Sun Zhi Miao’s other hand with a sinister look, mercilessly slashing down.
Sun Zhi Miao’s senior brother beneath the stage bellowed.
However, Su Yun turned a deaf ear to him.
The sound of flesh and bone being slashed apart sounded out.
The other arm was soon also sliced off. Sun Zhi Miao screamed in berserk rage and agony, large drops of sweat rolling down his cheek and blood spewed out from his amputated limbs continuously, causing the entire scene to be bloody.
Finally, Sun Zhi Miao was unable to bear the intense pain. His eyes rolled back, and fainted.
“Participant Wu Yun, please stop your movements!”
Finally, the judge could no longer bear to look and shouted loud, stopping Su Yun.
Hearing that, Su Yun hesitated for a moment, but in the end, he stopped.
If he continued, not only would he violate the rules. To lose his competition qualifications just because of Sun Zhi Miao was not worth it.
With both of his arms ruined, Sun Zhi Miao was no longer capable of fighting, so the outcome of the battle was naturally very clear.
The judge rushed to the stage and ran up to check on Sun Zhi Miao. After a moment, he stood up and shouted loudly: “The victory is clear, the round goes to Participant Wu Yun, Wu Yun will be promote to the Lion Group!”
WIth that said, all of the cultivators ran up to the stage and prepared to bring Sun Zhi Miao down for treatment.
But before they could reach him, an even faster silhouette landed beside Sun Zhi Miao and hugged him up.
With a glance, it was clear that it was the senior brother who was watching the competition.
“Zhi Miao! Zhi Miao! How are you?” The man asked anxiously.
But Sun Xiao Miao had already lost consciousness, so how could he hear him?
“He had suffered from serious injuries, we must treat him!”
A few spirit cultivators walked over.
But the man bellowed: “Get lost! I will treat my junior brother, I do not need any of you to butt in!”
Hearing that, the spirit cultivators looked at each other, but did not insist.
He carried Sun Zhi Miao and brought him towards the stairs, but when he passed by Su Yun, he stopped.
“You have guts, to be so fierce!” The senior brother said coldly with a sinister face.
“Sorry, I was powerless.” Su Yun said calmly: “I wasn’t able to kill him.”
“Is that right?” The senior brother looked at Su Yun with uncontrollable rage, and said: “My name is Lei Tian Dong! You better remember that, because if we meet in the next round, I will definitely slaughter you.”
“I’ll wait for you!”
Su Yun said indifferently, he then turned and jumped down the stage.
“Humph!” Lei Tian Dong snorted, then went down the stage and headed back to his own cave.
Everyone automatically opened a path and allowed them to leave.
Lei Tian Dong carried Sun Zhi Miao, he activated his Profound Spirit Qi and infused it to Sun Zhi Miao’s body, preventing him from losing more blood, and curbing the pain.
Not long after, Sun Zhi Miao gradually opened his eyes, his face was distorted and he was extremely weak, as though he was a dead man.
The pain he was suffering from not only came from his amputated arms, but the the Profound Spirit Force that was injected into his body when the Engraved Dragon Blade cut him, the pain was unimaginably painful.
“Senior Brother…” Sun Zhi Miao said weakly.
“Don’t move, your injury is severe, I am currently using Profound Spirit Qi to seal your wounds. You need to lay down quietly and rest!” Lei Tian Dong said.
“But senior brother. My arm, my arm!”
Sun Zhi Miao panicked as he cried out loud.
“Relax! Relax! Junior brother, I will help you heal back a pair of arms!”
“But how can a new pair of arms be compared to my old arms? I cannot accomplish what I want in three years, and even my talent and cultivation will definitely be influenced… Senior brother! What do I do? What should I do?”
Seeing Sun Zhi Miao in such anguish, Lei Tian Dong’s face became gloomy.
“I never expected that Wu Yun would be so ruthless with his methods! Despicable!”
“Senior Brother, take revenge for me” Sun Zhi Miao said weakly.
“Alright alright, Zhi Miao.” Lei Dong Tian said coldly: “I will rip him to shreds!”
“You want to kill him? But Mountain River List competition forbids killing, upon doing that, not only will you be punished, but your qualifications for the competition will also be revoked, if you do that, then what happens to the task given by the sect?”
“You don’t have to worry about that!”
A sinister look appeared in Lei Tian Dong’s eyes as he said: “Everyone knows, that in the Mountain River List competition, accidental manslaughter is not against the rules!”
He had finally entered the lion group.
Upon winning one more round, he would enter the dragon group, and would be directly promoted to participate in the ranking competitions.
“As long as I fight my way to the top three, I can get Through Heavens Mirror! And then my goal will be accomplished!”
Su Yun did not have anything holding him back in the world, the only one he was concerned about was Su Qing Er.
When he returned to his cave, this time around, the enchantment barrier on his cave did not get destroyed, making him heave a sigh of relief.
Opening up the enchantment, he rushed in and found the furnace, seeing that the furnace’s surface was occasionally red and yellow, as though it was going to explode, Su Yun was extremely happy, ignoring the temperature of the furnace, he placed his hand on it and activated his Profound Spirit Force, urging his Qi into the furnace.
The thick Qi rushed in like a flood, causing the furnace to immediately become red, as though it would melt at any moment, the temperature of the cave also started to rise, becoming intensely hot.
The interior of the furnace released a light side, followed by the cover exploding open, and a heat wave flowed out.
Su Yun cut his Profound Spirit Qi and immediately retreated, observing the furnace opening. When the heat wave gradually dissipated, he immediately ran over and looked inside.
A blazing hot, blood like pearl pill sat quietly in the furnace.
“Great Broiled Immortal Blood Pill: After consuming it, it will form a signal in the body, attracting the Sky burning fire to cover the earth, if the signal is sufficient, it can establish a connection with the ‘Cross Fire Heaven Lord’, and you can seek protection from him.”
Only that no one knew who the Cross Fire Heaven Lord was, and anything that was pertaining the Cross Fire Heaven Lord were all legends, but it appeared that no one was able to accomplish it.
Obtaining the Sky Burning Fire could be considered a safeguard.
Su Yun thought for a while, then closed the furnace, sat down cross legged and began to recover.
The following days were not as peaceful as he thought it would be, because of the promotion to the lion group, he had received more notice from people, and people would once in awhile barge into the cave, either to make friends or to seek pointers, and many higher ups of some powerful sects came over to talk to Su Yun, hoping that he would join their ranks.
Su Yun patiently rejected them, he had no other choice, and had to ask Wang Zhong Shan and the rest to keep watch outside his cave, and prevent the people from disturbing him.
After enduring for seven days, the final match, ‘from Lion to Dragon’ competition was finally beginning.
Su Yun packed up the place, then headed straight towards Engraved Snow Plains.
No one knew who their opponents would be.
“Brother Wu Yun!”
From the distance, a few figures appeared. Before they got close, a slightly weak but beautiful female voice came out.
Su Yun looked over, seeing that it was Wang Zhong Shan and the gang, he knew that the one who spoke was Hong Yan.
“Hong Yan, you’re alright?” Su Yun walked over with a smile.
“There isn’t much that can stop me.” Hong Yan’s face was slightly pale, but her eyes were filled with charm, and she was spirited. She smiled: “The Qin Creek Protectors’ medicinal techniques are brilliant, I am afraid that even Blossom Heart Valley cannot out do them!”
“Then, that’s great!” Su Yun nodded.
“Brother Wu Yun! You must do your best! It’s the last round, you cannot lose! You must definitely get into the ranking competitions!” Hong Yan said.
“That’s right! Boss Wu Yun, you must definitely do your best! We will cheer for you!” Li Qing and the rest started to shout as well, excitement and enthusiasm written all over their faces, after all, in the nominal roll, Su Yun was still considered in their group. For someone from their group to be able to secure a place in the dragon group, how proud would they be?
Just then, Wang Zhong Shan took out a purple inch long throwing blade, and passed it to Su Yun.
“Brother Wang, what’s this?”
“This is for you.” Wang Zhong Shan laughed: “This Treasure is called ‘Ten Thousand Heavy Blade’, after activating it, it will split into 10 thousand throwing blades that will soar to kill the enemy, it is a special treasure of my Wang Family, although it can only be used once, its ability will definitely be of use. It was originally something my father prepared for me, but since I, Wang Zhong Shan does not have the ability, and lost in the first few rounds unlike Brother Wu Yun, clearing every obstacle in your path and fighting your way up to the dragon round, so I decided to give this to you, brother Wu Yun, to aid you in entering the dragon group!”
“How is that fine?”
“Why is it not fine? Brother Wu Yun, if it is not for you, I am afraid we would’ve already died under Bei Xuan Ming’s hands. If not for you, it would be extremely difficult for us to get rid of our resentment. Furthermore, you are representing my Wang Family in name to fight. Your current results have already brought my Wang Family countless of benefits, so why can’t I give you a treasure?”
Wang Zhong Shan was very earnest, without the slightest degree of being artificial.
Seeing that, Su Yun pondered for a moment, then nodded his head and accepted the ‘Ten Thousand Heavy Blade.’
With that, the group of people stepped into the Engraved Snow Plains.
Just when they entered, they were immediately taken for a shock.
The entire snow plains was densely clustered with people. In the sky and on the ground, everywhere was filled with people! The number covered the skies and the ground, it was extremely lively.
“What is going on?”
“Oh, this, since Qin Creek publicly advertised the results of the competition, more and more people had been coming into Qin Creek, This round is the lion to dragon promotion round, and is also the last round in the selection competition. Naturally, there would be even more people coming to watch!”
“There are already so many people watching now, are you saying that there will be even more people in the ranking competition?” Hong Yan who was at the side asked.
“I’m not sure about that, but I heard that the ranking competition is held in the Sacred Palace. Who knows if we even can watch it.”
“Don’t think too much, there isn’t much time left!”
Su Yun exhaled and said.
The mark on his hand produced a reaction again, and the information flowed into his brain.
After obtaining the information, he bade goodbye to the rest, then headed towards the place where many people were hoarding around.
The place that was bustling with activity with many people, where a gigantic stage was situated in the center of all of them.
“Quick, look! Who’s that coming?”
“Could this match participant be Wu Yun??”
“Haha, there is a show to watch now!”
“Sheesh, what show is there? This Brat Wu Yun will definitely lose! He is not a match for Zhang Kai Feng!”
“That may not be true!”
“What? You don’t believe me? You want to bet on it?”
“I am afraid that you cannot match up to me!”
“Fine! We shall take out our treasures to bet! At least a treasure of the Green Level, a purple level treasure will be worth 10 green level treasures, a spirit level treasure is worth 50 purple level treasures!”
“Deal! This old one don’t have many things, but have many treasures! I will use 2 Purple Level Treasures!”
“Good, you’ve got guts!”
“Ah! Are you guys betting? I want to join in! I will bet 8 Green Level Treasures!”
“Me too me too! I bet that Wu Yun wins! I bet 4 Purple Level Treasures!”
“You asshole, you’re looking down on our senior brother Zhang? I will bet one spirit level Treasure! Who can compete with that?”
Everyone started to become excited, the hubbub of shoutings flowed like a big wave.
Zhang Kai Feng?
Su Yun’s mind became suspicious, that name seemed to be very familiar.
Then, just as he was getting close to the stage, a group of people were seated in the stands, causing him to stop in his tracks.
Immortal Sword Sect!
Could the next opponent be from the Immortal Sword Sect?
