Chapter 127: A Question of Character?
The bearded cultivator released his black-gold broadsword in his fury and shock. Dang! A clash resounded as the black-gold broadsword struck against the white screen the green robed youth emitted, as sparks sprayed out everywhere.
The bearded cultivator had deemed that the Moonlight Sect disciple would likely not let either of them off.
When the rebounded white screen flew back into the hand of the green robed youth, upon taking a closer look, it was a white crescent moon-shaped dagger with abnormally sharp edges. However, at this moment, it had a deep-seated scar in its centre.
Noticing the scar on his dagger, the green robed youth merely sneered. Obviously, it was just a test to see the strength of his opponent’s sword and it wasn’t even of an adequate level in his eyes.
The bearded cultivator’s outline flickered and flew towards the green robed youth after parrying away his magical artifact.
The green robed youth reacted upon seeing his opponent’s movement by lightly tapping on the palace robed girl’s body. A layer of cold ice appeared immediately around the girl, sealing off any air flow. He then leaped into the air, as his boots emitted a cyan light. It turned to be a pair of Ascending Clouds Boots which was of a higher grade than Wei Suo’s pair of Wind Cloud Shoes, and allowed its user to surge up to 60m into the air.
The bearded cultivator paled after witnessing such a ruthless method by the youth. He roared in a frenzy and released a black goldish ray from his sword towards the youth ferociously, as if it was a venomous python striking at its prey.
Strangely, the youth froze in the air. Puuuu! Simultaneously when the bearded cultivator’s sword ray struck a crack on the back of the youth’s scarlet turtle shield, the youth revealed a sarcastic smile from the corner of his lips as if his opponent had fallen into his trap.
“Glimmering Yin Sand!”
The bearded cultivator let loose a scream. A bag full of Wei Suo’s favourite yet expensive Glimmering Yin Sand wrapped together with the youth’s Scarlet Turtle Shield.
The Sand burnt the Scarlet Turtle Shield and heavily exhausted its spirit energy. At the same time, the bearded cultivator’s broadsword released green fumes as its brilliance darkened.
Looking at the favourable circumstances, the Goatee Beard Cultivator stored his beloved sword and immediately triggered a white talisman. In a flash, the misty and low visibility forest turned even hazier to the point where one would not be able to see his outstretched fingers.
The youth casually took out a red gourd and poured true energy into it. Countless bat-shaped flames burst out from the gourd and covered a radius of 150m around the youth.
Having fled under cover for 60m, Goatee Beard was forced to show himself again.
Realising that there was no way of escape, Goatee Beard decided to have a fight to the death with the youth and returned towards his direction. He instantly activated his already hollowed black-gold sword; while simultaneously controlling it to slash towards the youth, he shot a water arrow from his other hand.
Goatee Beard was a Heavenly Circuit Stage 1 cultivator. Hence, the water arrow that he shot out carried significant awe.
The youth was apparently overloaded with many defensive artifacts on him, as he summoned a normal Profound Iron shield and a Steel Essence shield; as though he wanted to get rid of these low standard artifacts on him.
After both shields were blown to smithereens by the water arrow along with Goatee Beard’s slash, the youth casually activated a white tooth-like artifact.
Upon seeing the radiation exuberated by the activated beast-tooth artifact, Goatee Beard’s face instantly turned unsightly. He immediately recalled his sword and simultaneously activated a dull yellow protection barrier of spiritual energy.
However, the beast-tooth artifact transformed into a white beam with astonishing speed and by the time the black-gold sword struck down, it landed on nothing. The beam easily pierced through layers of divine light screen erected by Goatee Beard as though it was made of paper. It easily broke through the 2 layers of divine light barriers and struck against the edge of his copper shield and into his left lower ribs….
A true Spirit class artifact!
From the might of this artifact, it was no doubt a Spirit grade artifact.
Goatee Beard let loose a shrill. The green robe youth coldly reactivated his artifact. This time there wasn’t any layer of divine light screen blocking his white beam and it struck past the violet copper shield and opened a bloody hole under Goatee Beard’s throat.
Hopeless as he clutched his injury, it only took the timing of 2 breaths before he died face down with a dissatisfied look on his face.
The green robed youth proudly came back to the ground and walked towards the Goatee Bearded cultivator’s corpse.
Actually, the youth had a bet with one of his sect seniors before entering Sky Valley, competing on who would be able to hunt down the most cultivators. The winner would be able to walk away with a Marrow bloodstone that was able to suck a demonic beast’s blood to use for cultivation.
Upon reaching Goatee Beard’s corpse, the youth suddenly stopped and glanced towards the densely covered trees before coldly admonishing. “Sir, you have been observing for quite awhile already. It’s about time to show yourself for me to see.”
At the same time, the fiery red gourd was activated immediately. Countless bat-like flames enveloped the dense trees as if there was a catastrophe looming overhead.
“What the fuck!”
Behind that dense area of trees, Wei Suo looked at a fist-sized spider corpse beside him and dumbfoundedly kept his concealment robe while activating a cyan barrier screen and a copper barrier screen.
This guy’s character is really terrible.
Wei Suo just happened to pass by and had bumped into the Moonlight Sect disciple again. Originally, Wei Suo did not want to fight to the death with him and just wanted to take a look.
However, it seemed like fate wasn’t on his side. A level 2 venomous tooth spider was about to land on his head, and Wei Suo had no choice but to stab at it. However, he did not expect that the Moonlight Sect Disciple to notice even that minute movement.
The Moonlight Sect disciple was slightly shocked after seeing Wei Suo in the midst of the forest fire.
Wei Suo wasn’t as fearless as the Moonlight Sect disciple. This big forest fire would mostly attract other cultivators or demonic beasts, and at this rate he was going now, it was certain he was going to fight head on with this Moonlight Sect Disciple. Hence, Wei Suo silently cursed in his heart and did not waste another second. He immediately activated his new White Jade Coil artifact.
Freezing air flooded out of the coil and the forest fire was immediately extinguished, leaving only white layer of frost lingering on all of the burnt trees.
Without any hesitation after activating the Jade Coil, Wei Suo used his newly obtained Sneaky Copper Nail and shot it towards the green robe disciple.
“You are also a Heavenly Circuit Stage Cultivator?! With a skill to hide your real cultivation stage, it’s no wonder you dare to walk alone in this Sky Valley!” Deducing from the strength by which Wei Suo had launched his attack, the cocky youth said so with a tone of surprise. Nonetheless, the youth did not hesitate and shook his arm to unleash a yellow ray to wrap around the Copper Nail. Before Wei Suo could even release the hidden mechanism within the nail to launch a sneak attack, the yellow ray had already wrapped around the Screw and returned into the hands of the youth.
“Are you for real?”
Wei Suo was shocked till his jaw almost hit the floor.
The youth had used something that resembled a yellow belt-like artifact and this artifact was able to straightforwardly steal his opponent’s artifact.
With at least 1 real Spirit class offensive weapon in his hand and something that was capable of stealing his opponent’s artifact, it was no wonder this Moonlight Sect Disciple was able to fearlessly hunt cultivators for entertainment all over the place.
It seemed like this Moonlight disciple wasn’t any ordinary inner sect disciple but rather one of the elite disciples.
“This item should be a replica made from the Immemorial sect’s Immemorial Damask. The quality of the materials used shouldn’t be anywhere near the real Damask. There is a chance that your Spirit class arrow artifact can break through it. However, if it fails, you shouldn’t try to fight it out but rather think of a way to run.” The green robed old man’s voice echoed within Wei Suo years.
“Holy Fuck! I am already trying to be low key, why must you be so serious.” What made Wei Suo depressed was the youth in green robe did not employ the same tactic that he used against the Goatee Beard Cultivator which was to casually throw out 2 Scarlet Turtle shields. However, the youth activated a green light screen barrier of excellent defense instead. This spoiled Wei Suo’s plan on launching a sneak attack using his invisible Bone Piercer artifact.
“CHI!” The air exploded. At this moment, the youth activated his Animal Tooth-like Spirit Grade offensive artifact.
The 2 layers of Half Spirit class defensive spiritual shield was immediately broken.
“Spirit class defensive shield?”
What made the youth look in disbelief was a shockingly heavy and barbaric presence shield appearing right before Wei Suo, blocking the white beam effortlessly.
“Phew.” Observing that his Scarlet Beetle shield was left with only a shallow scar, Wei Suo released a relieved exhalation.
“I can’t believe that you have a real Spirit class defensive shield. It seems like you are not a poor loose cultivator as I thought. This is really a pleasant surprise.” The youth’s mouth twitched while taking out a white whistle made of bones.
The colour and luster of his whistle was very similar to the other Spirit class weapon. It is as if it was taken from the same beast. The Moonlight Sect disciple placed a white bone whistle into his mouth and blew it.
What caused Wei Suo to break out in cold sweat was that once this whistle was blown, not only did the surrounding wind start gusting up, but the sound it gave off attacked his brain and directly caused him to turn dizzy. The green robed youth’s figure turned blurry, and resulted in Wei Suo not being able to differentiate the position of the green robed youth properly.
