Chapter 64 – Who’s more insidious than whom
Translated by: Pumpkin

No wonder the opponents were extremely confident. So it was because they possessed a true Spirit level Magical Treasure; one that could devastate their opponents’ artifacts!
Furthermore, this green faced skinny old man’s status seemed to be above that gray clothed cultivator. It was evident that he was a Heavenly Circuit Stage cultivator.
At the moment when the Iron Policy’s waxy-yellow complexion Heavenly Circuit Stage cultivator’s expression greatly changed as he looked to the Moonlight Disk in his hand, the other four people in the skinny old man’s party, without any regard for defense due to being enveloped by the yellow treasured umbrella, also began to cast their artifacts one after the other to attack the Iron Policy’s group of five.
The item that the gray clothed cultivator whom Wei Suo had met at the northern city district was actually another set of complementary artifacts. When it was cast, the artifact appeared like a set of fishbones. However, once it left his hand, it turned into several tens of white lights. These white lights were shot toward the five from the Iron Policy.
As for the other three cultivators, they respectively cast a seal that flickered with silvery light, a cyan colored wooden fish and a little hatchet that flickered with yellow light.
Once these four artifacts were cast, the two door-sized thick thunder-light shields cast by the hemp clothed cultivator were instantly torn to shreds like two pieces of paper. The two lumps of yellow mist that surrounded the people from the Iron Policy instantly converged together and formed an extremely thick yellow colored earth wall. The four artifacts collided onto the earth wall. Dust soared from the collision. However, they were stopped by the earth wall.
However, the short stature cultivator who had cast this skill technique had clearly grew paler. He immediately swallowed two Energy Recovery Pellets. It appeared that this powerful defensive skill technique would exhaust all of his True Elemental Energy every time he used it.
Seeing that their side was in an extreme disadvantage, the leader of the Iron Policy’s group of five, the waxy-yellow complexion cultivator fiercely clenched his teeth and, as if he had made his determination, shouted to Nangong Yuqing. At the same time, he cast a dark golden colored pearl from his shaking hand. This dark golden pearl hit the yellow colored treasured umbrella that blocked the front of the five of them.
The skinny old man’s eyes displayed a smile of ridicule. He believed that they would not be able to breach through his Spirit level defensive Magical Treasure. However, when the dark golden colored pearl hit his treasured umbrella, it suddenly exploded and created a dazzling dark golden light.
The skinny old man was completely shocked. His treasured umbrella actually began to melt in the dark golden light. Over half of the umbrella had completely melted to ashes.
Right after the waxy-yellow complexion cultivator shouted at Nangong Yuqing, Nangong Yuqing seemed to understand what he wanted her to do and immediately cast her Magical Treasure Fragment.
At the same moment when the yellow treasured umbrella was melted, Nangong Yuqing’s Magical Treasure Fragment had turned into a blue light and, without anything blocking it, pierced past the yellow treasured umbrella and instantly appeared before the skinny old man.
Right at the moment when the skinny old man was about to be killed by Nangong Yuqing’s Magical Treasure Fragment, a copper lens that flickered with yellow light suddenly appeared from his chest. “Bang.” A hole was pierced on this copper lens. All of its Spiritual Energy had been lost and it fell to the ground. However, this copper lens blocked Nangong Yuqing’s Magical Treasure Fragment for a moment and allowed the skinny old man to move slightly to the side. The blue light that was originally going to pierce through his head did a ‘woosh’ and only managed to slice off one of his ears.
“Ah!” The skinny old man screamed in pain. In a panic, he covered the area where his ear had been sliced off. As for Nangong Yuqing’s party of five, their expression had completely changed.
The waxy-yellow complexion young Heavenly Circuit Stage cultivator’s dark golden colored pearl and Nangong Yuqing’s Magical Treasure Fragment were their trump cards. However, even using both of those items against the skinny old man, the two of them only managed to inflict a light injury on him and did not manage to kill him.
A cold voice sounded from the waxy-yellow complexion young Heavenly Circuit Stage cultivator’s mouth. The two door-like thunder-light shields appeared once again. The five people from the Iron Policy all began to retreat to the passageway behind them. The black clothed cultivator began to unceasingly emit yellow mist from his hands. These yellow mists turned into lumps of yellow earth. It seemed as if he was planning to seal the passageway behind them.
“You all have injured me, yet you’re trying to leave?! Get back here!”
However, at this moment, the skinny old man who was injured by the waxy-yellow complexion cultivator’s and Nangong Yuqing’s combined attacks managed to react. The gourd that was covered with dense white gas was sent through the yellow earth crack that had still not finished closing. It reached before the five people of the Iron Policy and began to spray out a large amount of black water.
The expressions on the five people from the Iron Policy took a huge change. They immediately stopped.
The five of them immediately turned around and charged through the earth wall that they have created behind them, crashing it and returning to where they previously were.
The five people from the skinny old man’s party had formed a semicircle and surrounded the five from the Iron Policy. Right at the moment when the five people from the Iron Policy was panicky and casting skill techniques to defend against the skill techniques and artifacts their opposing five people had casually cast, a white clothed cultivator quietly appeared behind the five of them without making a sound.
This young white clothed cultivator had red lips and white teeth and appeared extremely handsome and confident. However, he was extremely cunning and sinister. At the same time he appeared like a ghost, a lump of white mist appeared from his white robe. The white mist completely isolated his aura and magic power from being detected.
Right after he appeared, he immediately interacted with the skinny old man who had one ear sliced off. After that, he secretly took out a transparent icicle-like artifact.
“I shall have you all experience my other Spirit level Magical Treasure!”
The skinny old man seemed to know that this white clothed cultivator would appear beforehand. Thus, he shouted a bluff to attract the attention of the five from the Iron Policy as he waited for the white clothed young cultivator to sneak attack from behind. The skinny old man knew very well that this white clothed young cultivator was another level one Heavenly Circuit Stage cultivator with strength on par with him. Furthermore, this man possessed some powerful artifacts on him.
The skinny old man believed that at least two or three people of the Iron Policy would be killed by the sneak attack.
However, a matter occurred that made the skinny old man felt extremely confused. He had already shouted his bluff saying that he possessed another Spirit level Magical Treasure and had attracted the attention of their five opponents. It was already the optimal moment for the white clothed cultivator to mount his sneak attack. However, the white clothed cultivator appeared to be stunned and did not attack.
‘Could it be that just because you’ve worn white clothes, your brain have truly become blank?’ The skinny old man who had already lost one of his ears was so angry that his nose had almost turned crooked from anger.
At this moment, the white clothed cultivator who sneakily came from behind felt as if he had seen a ghost.
The white clothed cultivator had already seen the corpses of Three Rounds Liu and ‘Eagle Eye Han.’ However, right at the moment when he was prepared to attack, in an unbelieving manner, he saw Eagle Eye Han’s corpse behind the skinny old man and the rest getting up in a very nimble manner. After that, the corpse even waved at him.
In the instance when he was stunned, a ‘woosh’ was heard. A bunch of black colored skulls and a black light was shot out from the hand of this nimble corpse that had just stood back up. In an instant, they reached the skinny old man that was caught off guard.
Nangong Yuqing and the rest were also stunned upon seeing a corpse getting back up in such a nimble manner and then attacking the skinny old man.
Before she and the other four members of the Iron Policy could react, the skinny old man’s head had been sliced off by the black light. At the same time, his body had been hit by the numerous black skulls to a miserable state before falling to the ground.
“Who is it!?”
By the time the gray clothed cultivator and the other three members’ hair became erect from the sudden attack, immediately activated their defensive artifacts and turned around, the person that had assassinated the skinny old man had already retreated to over a hundred feet to the right. At the same time, he immediately cast two Profound Ghost Shields before him and shouted in a loud voice. “Nangong Yuqing, be careful, there’s a sneaky little pretty boy trying to sneak attack you all from behind!”
“It’s you!” “It’s you!”
Nangong Yuqing shouted at practically the same time as the gray clothed cultivator. Merely, one was excited whereas the other was extremely shocked, as if he had seen a true ghost.
“Chi.” At the same time when Wei Suo shouted, the white clothed cultivator managed to react. A stream of extremely cold mist was shot out from the icicle-like artifact that he held. The cold mist instantly froze the waxy-yellow complexion Heavenly Circuit Stage cultivator, the black clothed small stature cultivator and the hemp clothes cultivator in a layer of ice.
At the same time, an awl-like artifact that flickered with black light appeared in his hand.
This cunning and sinister white clothed cultivator seemed to have observed that Nangong Yuqing’s party of five only had three people whose defensive abilities were powerful. Thus, he immediately bound these three individuals right away. After that, he planned to assassinate the rest of them using his powerful offensive artifact.
However, the hairs of this white clothed cultivator immediately started standing up. He was so scared that he nearly pissed his pants. He suddenly saw a Wind Spirit Eagle with no feathers on its wings at all. This Wind Spirit Eagle was standing not far from him and looking at him with bulging eyes.
“Why is there suddenly a Wing Spirit Eagle here?!”
The white clothed cultivator screamed loudly. He immediately cast the awl-like artifact that he held at the Wind Spirit Eagle beside him. At the same time, he panicked created a little white shield.
Seizing the opportunity, with a ‘kacha’ sound, the lump of ice that trapped three of the Iron Policy’s members was broken through by a fireball from Liu Wu. The waxy-yellow complexion cultivator and the other two escaped from the ice that bounded them.
As for the Wind Spirit Eagle that had been pierced through by the awl, it remained standing there motionlessly. Its eyes were still bulging as it stared at the white clothed cultivator.
“Fuck! It’s a phony!”
The white clothed cultivator who was scared to a point of nearly pissing himself finally managed to react.
“Did you kill Revered Daoist Zixiao and them too?” The gray clothed Heavenly Circuit Stage cultivator looked to Wei Suo with an extremely frantic expression. In a cold voice, he asked. Originally, Wei Suo was clearly a low level Divine Sea Stage cultivator. He was something that this gray clothed cultivator would never bother to pay attention to. However, earlier, Wei Suo had killed the skinny old man who was a bit more powerful than him right before his eyes. Furthermore, the Revered Daoist Zixiao who was a bit more powerful than him also seemed to have been killed by Wei Suo. Currently, chill had filled this gray clothed cultivator’s heart. For the time being, he didn’t dare to even attack Wei Suo.
“I’ve killed quite a lot today. I’m not sure which one you’re talking about.” Extremely scared and on edge, Wei Suo had taken out even his Dark Phosphorous Bone Sword and held in it his hand. However, he acted like a pretentious prick and fling back his head before saying, “Are you talking about the purple gowned old man that I killed by the pond or the guy wearing yellow clothes that you met at the northern city district’s market?”
“What? Even Wen Daoge was killed by him?!”
The gray clothed cultivator and them naturally do not know that Wei Suo was lying. Once they heard that he had killed the yellow clothed cultivator, the expressions on these people instantly changed. The gazes they looked at Wei Suo with, now appeared like one that had truly seen a ghost.
