Evil Sword Sovereign King (III)
Su Yun was not like the other participants that rushed forward like lightning, instead, he walked one step at a time towards the old lady.
He held the Death Sword in one hand, and with the Immortal Mystical Scarlet Blood Sword and the Sword Sheath strapped on, he walked steadily, with his eyes filled with focus under the mask. The selection competition participants all looked at Wu Yun, and knew why Lei Tian Dong had challenged Wu Yun.
“I will rip you to shreds!”
Just as Su Yun got close, Lei Tian Dong bellowed softly. Su Yun raised his eyebrows slightly, only to see Lei Tian Dong’s distorted and ugly face, harboring a sinister killing intent. He looked like an evil spirit.
When he said that, Lei Tian Dong instantly extended his hand out towards the ‘fight to the death agreement’.
The selection competition participants all stood up at the same time as they looked at the two.
A fight to the death.
Seems like someone will die!
“Wu Yun! If you have the guts, then don’t be afraid! Do you dare to accept the ‘fight to the death’ agreement?
“‘Fight to the death agreement’? Someone has to die.”
“Are you afraid?” Lei Tian Dong said evilly.
“This….” Su Yun was doubtful, but it was very short. He sighed, and pressed on the fight to the death agreement.
The agreement released two light auras that submerged into their arms and into their bodies, releasing a light aura on their chest, then disappearing.
Seeing that, a gold light appeared in the old lady’s eyes, she spoke with her old voice: “The fight to the death agreement is successful. The two of you will begin the battle, regardless of life or death, until someone dies or surrender will the competition end, alright. The round will begin, the two of you can now enter the arena.”
With that said, Lei Tian Dong eagerly rushed into the absolute domain.
He took a deep breath, waving his hand, a bright white blade appeared in his hand. The white blade was bright and released a cold Qi, revealing an unexplainable sharp aura.
Su Yun stepped into the domain, holding onto the Death Sword, he stood there quietly, his pitch black abyss-like eyes focusing on Lei Tian Dong.
“What? You plan to fight me without unsheathing your sword?”
Lei Tian Dong looked at him coldly.
“You are not worth me unsheathing my sword.” Su Yun replied.
“You’re too arrogant!”
Lei Tian Dong shouted in rage, with a bellow, he raised his blade and rushed over.
Nearing Su Yun, he swung his shoulder, immediately releasing 10 blades in a breath, the blade images poured forth like a wave, it’s tyrannical aura seemed like it could destroy the earth.
But Su Yun dodged them all, with an extremely quick speed he arrived beside Lei Tian Dong and gently waved his hand.
A burst of Qi burst out from Su Yun’s body, like ten thousand strands of spider webs, going through Lei Tian Dong’s body. The Death Sword suddenly seemed to be attracted like a magnet, following the Qi all around and quickly travelling back and forth.
Storm Sword technique!
Lei Tian Dong was surprised and he could not quickly put up his guard to defend. He was soon struck by the Death Sword about four to five times consecutively, in which he kept on retreating. The Death Sword that was covered with Pure Divine Spirit Qi was extremely sharp. Although it wasn’t even out of its sheath yet, it was still able to pierce through people. However, Lei Tian Dong was not an ordinary cultivator, and the clothes on him weren’t ordinary either, and was able to block off the majority of the Pure Divine Spirit Qi.
Bai Yan Shan who was seated alone at the right side opened her eyes widely, looking at the man with the mask inside the domain with astonishment.
She still remembered that move very clearly.
“Su Yun?” The name swept past Bai Yan Shan’s mind, but she quickly shook it off: “How can Su Yun be here? Now there are many men in masks with sword sheaths, this must definitely be a coincidence.”
Lei Tian Dong who had stabilised himself struck with his blade again, but Su Yun managed to dodge.
The big white blade struck the ground, causing the ground to shake, with spiderweb like crevices forming, and wild Blade Qi leaked out like a ruptured water pipe.
Lei Tian Dong’s strength and destructive ability was unmatched. Other than the 4 elders on sight, if anyone else tried to take his blade, they would most likely be killed and entirely disfigured, but Lei Tian Dong’s speed was far from Su Yun’s.
He was as sly as a mud fish. Before the blade attacked, he would dodge easily, and the Death Sword which was in its sword sheath would go berserk on Lei Tian Dong, attacking his broad stature. Every time that the Death Sword attacked, Lei Tian Dong’s body would have a few wounds, and blood continued to flow.
“Tian Dong, don’t waste anymore time with him! Use all of your special treasures, and end this battle!”
Just then, Li Mu Qing who was at the side opened his mouth and shouted at Lei Tian Dong.
Hearing that, Lei Tian Dong’s eyes became gloomy.
He stopped chasing after Su Yun and retreated 10 steps to increase the distance. He then took out an object that resembled a rectangular bamboo from his storage ring. Holding it in the palm of his hand, he then opened his mouth and then poured all it’s content inside. After that, he stood there quietly, as though he was waiting for the treasure to take effect.
Seeing that, how could Su Yun give him the chance to wait? He immediately rushed up fiercely with the Death Sword.
Pure Divine Spirit Qi filled the entire sword sheath, forming into a big blade that can split mountains, emitting a direct strength and destructive ability that was indescribable.
When the Death Sword was hacking towards Lei Tian Dong, Lei Tian Dong’s skin suddenly released a large amount of energy, like an energy barrier that could block the incoming Death Sword.
The Death Sword was stopped.
Seeing that, Su Yun increased his strength, but when the energy that could split apart mountains plummeted, he could no longer break Lei Tian Dong’s power.
“Chopping off Zhi Miao’s arms, is the stupidest thing you have done in your entire life!” Lei Tian Dong roared like a beast, the five fingers that held onto his blade moved, the white blade chopped forward again.
Everywhere the blade passed, there would be ripples resonating outwards, like a huge surging tide, it was an impressive display as it dispersed forward.
Su Yun immediately retreated, and recklessly waved his sword, the sword edge releasing Sword Qi that burst forward, but Lei Tian Dong relied on the tough Qi barrier to block all of the sword Qi, he was like an ironclad demon, ignoring everything except to attack.
“You think I only have these attacks?”
He suddenly roared out, a wave of oppressive mental oppression struck Su Yun’s mind, in a moment. Everyone watching felt as though their limbs were weak, their heads were numb, as though they were going to faint just by watching him.
Li Mu Qing’s eyes lit up.
Bai Yan Shan’s heart tensed.
Lei Tian Dong singlehandedly held on the blade, the blade’s body pulled along the floor as he rushed over. The white blade generated sparks that travelled all over the floor, and taking the chance while Su Yun was dizzy, he slashed!
But at that moment, Su Yun’s eyes suddenly became focused, becoming clear from the dizziness. He held the Death Sword tightly and slashed in a slanted position. A light aura blossomed on his chest, and a red hot intent swept from his arm and into the Death Sword. In that moment, the pitch black Death Sword became like a Divine Sword that was as brilliant as the sun, the slanted slash releasing a mystical and powerful aura.
The clear and crisp sound came out.
The white blade was actually cut into two by the Death Sword.
Li Mu Qing’s eyes were as big as bull’s eyes, he suddenly stood up from the ground.
“That power! Only people of at least the seventh stage of the Spirit Soul realm can do that!”
The selection competition participants all cried out in shock.
Su Yun then thrusted forward with so much force, that even the sword hilt pierced into Lei Tian Dong’s chest, then he extended his other hand to clutch Lei Tian Dong’s throat, and then smashed him into the ground.
Lei Tian Dong immediately invoked his Qi to block, but he realised in shock that Su Yun’s entire body actually did not have a thread of Swift Wind Spirit Qi, and what completely replaced it was True Divine Spirit Qi! In such a short time, the attribute of his Spirit Qi had a complete world shocking makeover, and what was waiting for him, was a shocking strength!
Strength as powerful as a large mountain!
Lei Tian Dong was unable to hold on at all, he was pressed down to the ground by the huge force, the moment his body touched the ground, the ground instantly cracked and caved in, demonstrating how much force was applied.
Lei Tian Dong’s eyes were wide open as he looked at the abyss like eyes under the mask, which was completely filled with killing intent. It was extremely cold, and berserk!
“Wu Yun! Hold your hand! You cannot kill him!” Li Mu Qing seemed to have sensed something, and frantically yelled.
However, those words were like passing wind to Su Yun, completely unable to change his thoughts.
Lei Tian Dong raised his hand and struck Su Yun’s body continuously, but to Su Yun whose entire body was filled with True Divine Spirit Qi, Lei Tian Dong’s strength was like cotton, which could not do anything.
Aiming at Lei Tian Dong’s head, without any hesitation, he instantly smashed down.
Like a watermelon exploding, Lei Tian Dongs head split into pieces, red white paste oozing out.
The battle ended!
Lei Tian Dong, who had dominated every round in the selection competition, had died so tragically under Wu Yun’s hands!
The selection competition participants watching the match were all dumbstruck.
Even some of the seeded participants revealed looks of astonishment.
They weren’t shocked by Su Yun’s ruthless method, but was shocked that a person who used the sword, would actually have such strength.
Being blocked by the absolute domain, no one was able to check and probe on what Su Yun’s Spirit Profound Qi’s attribute was.
But… Didn’t sword users use Swift Wind Spirit Qi? Why does he have such strength?
As he stood up, Su Yun looked at Lei Tian Dong’s body beneath his feet, he extended his hand and picked up the Death Sword from Lei Tian Dong’s chest. After quickly patting the filth off his body, he calmly walked out of the domain.
“Participant Wu Yun, Victorious.”
The old lady announced the result once to the Sacred Palace.
The Sacred Palace was silent.
Li Mu Qing’s face was green, his teeth were clenched so tight they almost broke. Looking at the corpse inside the domain, he felt as if there were knives stabbing into his heart.
A few cultivators entered the domain and put Lei Tian Dong’s corpse away. Very quickly, the domain was cleaned up, and the old lady once again conducted the next round.
Su Yun returned to his own seat and closed his eyes to recuperate, not really paying attention to the following round.
He had completely relied on the Monarch Occult Force to win the battle.
Lei Tian Dong’s mental oppression was truly strong, but facing the Monarch Occult Force, it was useless. Su Yun initially concealed the Monarch Occult Force to lure Lei Tian Dong over, and when he was close, he activated the Monarch Occult Force, changing all of his Profound Spirit Qi into True Divine Spirit Qi, in order to use a greater force to suppress him. How could Lei Tian Dong expect that someone who was usually using Swift Wind Divine Qi to have such an enormous strength?
And because of that, Lei Tian Dong was caught unprepared.
Su Yun took the chance while others were fighting to recuperate.
He had gain further understanding regarding the Monarch Occult Force, following the corresponding attribute of the Monarch Occult Force, he could freely transform his Profound Spirit Qi. Under the use of Monarch Occult Force, all of the Spirit Essences in his body began to produce Qi frantically, moisturizing his injured veins and arteries, and his fatigued body quickly reached saturation again.
Who knew how many battles had passed.
“I want to issue a challenge!”
Just then, a shout sounded out inside the Sacred Palace.
Everyone turned to look, only to see Li Mu Qing who was seated, actually started to stand up.
In the next moment, everyone turned their attention to Su Yun.
Lei Tian Dong and Li Mu Qing were from the same sect, if Lei Tian Dong was killed, how could Li Mu Qing forgive him?
It had only been three rounds, he stood up impatiently. It was obvious that he hated Su Yun to the bones.
“Then let us go with the fight to the death agreement!”
What surprised everyone was that Su Yun had automatically stood up by himself and spoke out while walking towards the old lady.
Seeing his movements, many people were thinking, if Li Mu Qing did not stand up, would Su Yun himself challenge Li Mu Qing?
“Are you prepared to die?”
Li Mu Qing said coldly.
The two of them signed the agreement, then stepped into the absolute domain.
In that moment, everyone opened their eyes to watch.
Even the Wan Zang Tian who had his eyes closed the entire time to meditate had opened his eyes and was looking at the absolute domain.
Li Mu Qing also used a sword, it was a red sword leaking red blood light, filled with an Evil Qi.
But at that moment, Su Yun had no other thoughts.
He stopped caring about what others would see him as.
He also stopped thinking about what would happened if he portrayed his techniques.
What he had to do now, was to kill Li Mu Qing!
Or must I always rely on my sword sheath to fight my way through the Mountain River List?
Don’t say that others would not believe in that, even he did not believe that by using just the sword sheath, he could win. Furthermore, Li Mu Qing was a seeded participant whose strength was beyond what he had fought in the selection competition! He definitely could not look down on him.
No more apprehensions!
Su Yun thought coldly, tightly holding on the Death Sword.
Let me use Li Mu Qing’s blood, to announce the hatred I have held for the Profound Sky Sect all these years!
