Evil Sword Sovereign King (IV)
Just then, Li Mu Qing leaped forward with a roar, like an immortal flying down from a high altitude. The blood sword in his hand struck down indiscriminately, striking towards Su Yun. In that moment, Li Mu Qing actually looked like he was waving over 800 swords, making Sword Qi surge out berserkly, like a tempest that caused the spectator’s skin to go numb, the approaching severe Sword Qi converging into a fierce blood dragon that flowed over.
Su Yun released the Death Sword and with a move of his fingers, the Death Sword quickly flew up in a spiral, forming a black sword shield, blocking the incoming blood dragon’s attack.
However, in the next second, a formless, scentless, ethereal mental suppression forced him to stop, causing his heart to pound.
Sun Zhi Miao, Lei Tian Dong and this Li Mu Qing were all proficient in mental mystical techniques. Could it be that the Profound Sky Sect trained and specialized in mental energy related attacking methods?
Su Yun thought, he activated Monarch Occult Force, and the mental wave that had just touched his body was immediately swept away without a trace by Monarch Occult Force.
Seeing that, Li Mu Qing’s eyes revealed a strange color: “Brat! You actually have such a powerful mind protecting treasure! If not you would not be able to block my Profound Sky Sect’s ‘Mind Oppression Arts’!”
Su Yun did not reply, his finger arts moved, and the Death Sword flew back.
“Such insignificant techniques!”
Li Mu Qing growled, he used the blood red sword to parry the Death Sword, and rushed towards Su Yun. Su Yun immediately performed many different finger arts, summoning the Death Sword back, sneaking an attack from behind Li Mu Qing.
But just as the Death Sword was about to stab Li Mu Qing in the back, his back suddenly leaked out a large quantity of strange Qi body, this Qi body was exactly like Lei Tian Dong’s Qi Barrier, but it was obviously much stronger than Lei Tian Dong’s by multiple times. It was not only used for defense, but it also held a sequence to attack after defense.
Once the Qi body appeared, it quickly transformed into countless of vigorous and powerful grey gigantic hands that directly clutched onto the Death Sword’s sheath!
The Death Sword was being suppressed!
Su Yun’s face turned gloomy.
“The enemies around me not only have to face my sword and my two hands, they also have to face the 10 thousand hands in my body! Wu Yun! My junior brother Lei said he wanted to rip you to shreds! Since he is unable to do it, I will help him finish the job! Die!”
Li Mu Qing’s eyes turned red, his face becoming distorted and fanatical, he bellowed, and slashed his sword. Just as he swung the sword, the countless of transparent gigantic hands leaked out from his body and rushed forward to grab Su Yun’s body.
“Spirit Qi Materialization!”
(TN: this is different from Spirit Qi condensation, condensation is forcing Spirit Qi together to be visible, but realization, I would say, is to congeal it into an animate object. If anyone has any other names feel free to let us know!)(ED: temporarily changed to materialization)
Wan Zang Tian’s eyes lit up, and became focused.
The entire place flew into an uproar, everyone’s eyes pasted onto Li Mu Qing’s body.
What kind of terrifying and fierce move was that?
It was already difficult to fight against 4 hands with two fists, but now Li Mu Qing had thousands of materialized Spirit Qi hands, and they had all surrounded Su Yun… How was he going to fight back?
Many people were thinking that if they were to face Li Mu Qing, what would they do to counter that attack?
“If Wu Yun does not dispel that technique, he will lose!”
Lin Tian Yin chuckled.
However… facing against countless materialized hands, how could he get rid of them?
Much less the selection competition participants, even the seeded participants were thinking about it.
Suddenly, a loud explosion occurred, its source was the Death Sword that was being grabbed by the gigantic hand which had suddenly unsheathed itself, soaring in the sky.
In the next moment, the giant sword sheath on Su Yun’s back trembled, and then rays of light flew out!
Bai Yan Shan suddenly stood up, her bright eyes widening!
She was still suspicious at the beginning! But at that moment, she already had no more doubts about it! She was sure, and could confirm, that that man, was Su Yun! The Legendary Limitless!
Why would Limitless appear here? Why would Su Yun appear here?
“Wu Yun Wu Yun… Limitless… Su Yun?”
(TN: Limitless in Chinese is Wu Ji, so Wu Yun = Wu from Wu Ji and Yun from Su Yun. @.@)
Whoosh whoosh whoosh whoosh!
Over a 100 swords flew out, slashing messily in a berserk fashion. Wherever their sword tip passed, it would become a mess! The originally intricate and obscure Death Sword was currently crazily transforming, into a vast godly sword that covered the sky! And the 100 over flying swords in a reckless whirling dance was releasing Sword Qis, causing the air around Su Yun to transform into a torrential hurricane of swords!
The storm continued for around three breaths of time, then stopped spontaneously.
Like after the storm.
Clang clang clang clang.
After the 100 swords flew around, they automatically flew back into the sword sheath, while Death Sword swooped down from the sky, and flew back into its black sword sheath.
Li Mu Qing was completely still.
His eyes did not blink, his chest did not undulate, even the thousand hands materialized from Qi had all calmed down, he was like a statue that stood in the same spot and did not move an inch.
Then, a weird sound came out, and in the next moment. Li Mu Qing’s entire being started splitting into pieces. His skin oozing with blood from the wounds, his head dropped, the innards sloshed out in a disgusting manner, and finally his eyes blinked a few times. He had transformed into peices of meat, died extremely tragically, even his life protecting treasures were all cut into pieces!
Even the people at the back of the Sacred Palace could hear the breathing of the people at the front!
Every one of them were tongue tied, petrified, maintaining their shocked expressions, they looked at the center of the domain.
He was like a death god, standing in the center, showing disdain in front of the group!
There were still remnants of sword auras in the air.
A loud piercing scream broke the silence!
“Limitless! He is Limitless! He is Limitless!”
A selection competition participant stood up and shouted in fear!
“What? He is Limitless?”
“How is that possible? Isn’t he called Wu Yun?”
“The Imperial Sword Technique he used just now, was controlling 100 flying swords! Only Limitless can do that! He is Limitless!”
“Limitless? The Limitless who colluded with the Demons?”
“He actually came here! He cannot be pardoned!”
Many people stood up, acting like they were righteous and just. They glared at Su Yun like a tiger glaring at its prey.
Everyone revealed their cold expressions, but only Su Yun knew, that their real goal, was the Heavenly Crystal and Monarch Occult Force on his body!
Just then, “Yang Fire” Yan Yu stood up, and rushed to the four officials and cupped his fist: “Four esteemed seniors, this Wu Yun, is the infamous evil person Limitless of Sky Martial Continent! He had disrupted the Wu Shuang Meet at Wu Shuang Jue, harmed my Great Clan Elder, and even killed Immortal Sword Sect’s esteemed Clan Elder Shen Hong! I plead the four seniors to make your moves, and capture him! To seek justice for my Sky Martial Continent!”
“That’s right, Limitless colluded with the people from the Demonic Continent, and is a demonic person himself! He is guilty! He must be put to death!”
Someone else shouted.
“We must kill Limitless! We cannot let his demonic claws taint the scared Qin Creek!”
The shoutings grew more and more, as more and more people were stirred and were preparing to rush up.
Just then, a solemn voice came out.
The Sacred Palace immediately became quiet.
Everyone turned towards the origin of the voice in astonishment, only to see the bald elder at the most left of the four standing up.
He had a small figure, but his eyes was stern, like a fierce tiger staring angrily at all the participants.
Everyone who were stared down by him felt weak, and no one was able to utter a word.
His eyes were still closed, and in the next moment, he opened his eyes and bellowed: “This person does not even have an ounce of Demonic Cultivator Qi on him, whether he is Limitless or not, does not matter to me! If you say he is someone from the Demonic Continent, please take out proof. If he is a Demonic cultivator, to protect the peace of Sky Martial Continent! I will kill him! But if no one is able to bring proof that he is a Demonic Cultivator, then following to the rules, I will sentence those slanderers as guilty participants, and will be stripped of your qualifications! Now, who can bring me proof?”
With that said, no one dared to speak anymore.
All of those who were the fiercest currently had their heads dropped low.
“That’s right! All of you blatantly say that he is a Demonic Cultivator! But all of you merely heard rumors about it! You all are obviously falsely accusing him, and then want to rush forward and kill him! Then take the treasures on his body! All of you are obviously greedy for the Monarch Occult Force and Heavenly Crystal! A bunch of sanctimonious people!”
Just then, an angry reprimand came out.
Su Yun looked over and saw that it was the lady that came from Snow Jade Palace. She was already standing up. Her cold small face was staring at the crowd with eyes filled with killing intent, as though she wanted to rush forward and kill all those who had slandered Limitless!
“Qing’er! She’s definitely Qing’er!”
Seeing that, Su Yun’s heart was cleared, a happy emotion rose abruptly!
He looked over, at the same time where the lady turned to look at him too. The two of them looked at each other, their eyes interlocking. It was only with their eyes, but the two of them understood everything intuitively.
It was already so clear, what was there to not understand?
It was just that Qing’er had used some technique to alter her image slightly. But the way she spoke, and her defensive manner, proved that she was obviously Qing’er.
“Y-young master?” Su Ming’er who was Su Qing’er muttered under her breath.
“Seems like I don’t need Through Heavens Mirror anymore! I never expected that Qing’er would actually be at the Mountain River List ranking competition, heaven is truly helping me!”
Su Yun was extremely happy, his heart completely moved.
It truly was spending his all to look for something but inadvertently finding it, he never thought that the person he was looking for was actually in Qin Creek.
“Hahahah My apologies, I am late! I am late, I hope that everyone will forgive me!”
Just as the atmosphere of the Sacred Palace was extremely awkward, an amiable laughter came from the entrance of the Sacred Palace.
Everyone was distracted by it and turned their attention towards the outside of the Sacred Palace, to see a handsome young man dressed in white robes with earrings stepping over his robes tail, bringing his smile as he walked.
Upon entering, someone exclaimed out.
“Bai Feng Ye!”
Bai Yan Shan who was seated was startled, she anxiously stood up and looked at the person.
The man called Bai Feng Ye leaned his head slightly, seeing Bai Yan Shan in her blademaster clothes, he was startled for a moment, then asked anxiously: “Are you Yan Shan?”
“It’s me, brother!” Bai Yan Shan revealed a joyous look on her face, and immediately bowed towards Bai Feng Ye with respect.
“Hehehe!” Bai Feng Ye looked at Bai Yan Shan and nodded his head, laughing: “We have not met for 20 over years, and Yan Shan, you actually became so pretty! That’s good!”
“Brother don’t disturb this sister of yours anymore, ever since you were received by the Levitating Heaven Temple, we have not met for over 20 years, and the reason why I participated in this Mountain River List, one was to obtain a ranking for my Master, and second is I wanted to meet brother! Seeing that brother is safe and sound, Yan Shan is at ease!”
“Master? What Master? Oh, Immortal Sword Sect? Merely a third-rate Sword Sect! Yan Shan, you can just train in there, if you cannot, come to my Levitating Heaven Temple, I will just let my Master know and accept you as a closed door disciple!”
Bai Feng Ye laughed, and then headed inside the Sacred Palace.
Seeing Bai Feng Ye’s aggressive attitude, many of the participants participating for the first time disliked him, and started asking questions about him.
“Seniors, the Mountain River List Ranking Competition has already started, why can this person casually come into the Sacred Palace? Isn’t he already late? Following the competition rules, people who are late are not allowed to participate! W-what is going on?”
“Right, four seniors, could you explain to us.”
A group of people started to ask.
The old lady glanced at the group, and immediately nodded her head: “All of you are right, the competition rules did state those, but it seems that all of you did not notice the last line, the competition rules are not effective to the top three participants of the previous Mountain River List ranking competition.”
“Top three participants of the Previous Mountain River List Competition?”
“The previous Mountain River List, in third place, we have Valkyrie Xiao Chuo, in Second place, we have Ten Thousand Heart Sword Wan Zang Tian, and in first place, is the young man who just walked in, from the Levitating Heaven Temple, Bai Feng Ye!”
The old lady explained slowly.
“This is the special authority given to the strongest of the Mountain River List! The rules are made against the weak cultivators, if you all wish to casually walk in and out of the Sacred Palace like them, and freely walk in and out of Qin Creek, then you need to obtain the top three positions of the Mountain River List! In the end, the goal of the Mountain River List is to urge all of you new generations of the Sky Martial Continent to chase after the highest realm of cultivation, and this, is considered a method!”
With that said, everyone went into an uproar.
No one had thought that Bai Feng Ye was ranked first in the previous Mountain River List!
Lin Tian Yin who was seated amongst the group was the most astonished.
How come Bai Yan Shan never said that Bai Feng Ye was her brother?
Upon thinking about how he was just about to challenge Bai Yan Shan, Lin Tian Yin’s forehead started to perspire.
