Right as his spear missed its target, Lee Chang An’s expression dimmed as he had a bad premonition.
Then an intense pain came from behind him.
Lee Chang An shouted angrily, turned around and thrust.
But there was no one there.
Touching his back with his hand, is was bleeding.
But where is that guy?
His inner sight is telling him that the guy is still behind him, just a distance of one sword strike away.
“I’ve caught you!” he suddenly shouted.
But before he could even turn around, he felt pain on his back again.
Just like a tiger going berserk, Lee Chang An swung his spear, completing the entire 49 strikes of Saint’s Will Spear Techniques, leaving no space to take advantage of.
This is Xuanyuan Tianzun’s personal technique that he was taught, Lee Chang An had to practice it for a whole 2 years to master it, originally about to use it today to show off his strength.
But he only managed to swung it half-way before being slashed again on his back.
“Aaaaaaaa, I dare you to face me!”
Lee Chang An was already about to go crazy.
The crowd watching him was stunned silent.
Because what they’re witnessing is truly too bizarre, there no words they can use to describe the match they’re seeing right now.
From Lee Chang An’s second strike onwards, Gu Qing Shan has already gone past and stood directly behind him.
Whenever Lee Chang An move, or uses any technique, Gu Qing Shan would also move at the same time, making sure he’s always right behind him.
Lee Chang An turns around, he also turns around; Lee Chang An rushes forward, he also rushes forward; Lee Chang An stops, he stops.
The distance between them doesn’t change, the position doesn’t change.
He’s like a shadow, mimicking everything.
Creating such a laughable, yet also frightening scene at the same time.
Lee Chang An would never see where Gu Qing Shan is, but Gu Qing Shan is always behind him, as soon as he finds the chance, he’ll slash his back.
To be able to do this, you have you have unparalleled battle insight, enough that you won’t ever make a mistake.
One second, one step, one wrong movement and you won’t be able to recreate this same effect.
Knowing full well that his opponent is behind him, yet never actually see him, not to mention taking wound after wound, Lee Chang An could no longer keep his cool.
“Get out here! Get the fuck out here!”
He swung the spear around himself several more times, only to take another slash to his back as he stopped to breathe.
Lee Chang An could only try thrusting his spear backwards again.
No sound, no reply, no block, no counter attack, nothing.
It was like his opponent didn’t exist, but whenever he stops, he’s sure to receive another sword wound.
Due to the intense pain, Lee Chang An once again jumped up, once again tried to complete the set of spear techniques.
Once again, he stops to breathe, take one slash, swung his spear, stops to breathe, take another slash.
All the cultivators watching could only feel a chill from head to toe, their backs soaked in cold sweat.
Heaven’s Limit Sect’s master sighed, saying: “No wonder Bai Hua Saint does not take disciples easily”
Thousand Swords Sect’s master hadn’t said anything until now, breathed out: “The next generation is to be respected” (1)
On the platform, Gu Qing Shan is still sticking close right behind Lee Chang An, silently following his every move.
No matter what Lee Chang An does, no matter what techniques he uses, he still can’t see Gu Qing Shan.
His back was already covered in slashes, soaking him with his own blood.
Lee Chang An felt himself falling into a deep nightmare, even his Dao heart is already shaking.
He could only endure, gritting his teeth: “You’re clearly very skilled, how about we stop here?”
No replies came from behind.
Only an intense, bone-chilling pain ———-as another slash came.
He’s a man-shaped devil!
Lee Chang An couldn’t take it anymore, shouting: “If you want to die then don’t blame me!”
He tapped his Inventory Bag, taking a talisman in hand.
This is Xuanyuan Tianzun’s Divine Phoenix Talisman.
Divine Phoenix Talisman isn’t something Gu Qing Shan can deal with right now.
Since Lee Chang An took out this talisman, that means he doesn’t care about his face or winning anymore.
Using a Saint’s talisman on the Chosen of Divinity’s fighting ring is the same as insulting traditions, breaking the rules of over a hundred thousand years.
His reputation will drop like a rock after this, but right now, Lee Chang An couldn’t care less about something like reputation.
Lee Chang An’s spirit energy flowed, as the talisman glowed brightly.
A transparent outline appeared and expanded from the talisman, as a Phoenix phantom began to form.
Lee Chang An was gritting his teeth so hard it was bleeding.
Once the Phoenix shows up, I’ll take your life!
While he was grinning maliciously, Lee Chang An felt another slash on his back.
This time it wasn’t too deep, but his entire body felt numb, he couldn’t even move his pinky finger, his body ached all over, his muscles couldn’t help but contract.
His entire body suddenly lost control, his consciousness felt lost for just a fleeting moment before realizing…
Shit, this is Lightning!
Lee Chang An realized how dire the situation is, but his Dantian could no longer be controlled, so not even a speck of spirit energy followed his will.
Being cut off from spirit energy, the Divine Phoenix Talisman lost its power source.
The Phoenix could only show its head before cawing unwillingly, and got sucked back inside the talisman.
A single second later, Lee Chang An could feel his body again.
But a lot could happen in one second.
The Divine Phoenix Talisman in Lee Chang An’s hand was already taken away, and a sword pierced him from his back all the way through his chest.
The sword very precise pierced in next to his spine, slanting outward to his left, one centimeter away from his heart. Not only is the location scary, the intention is also very cruel.
Fresh blood dripped down the tip of the sword.
Lee Chang An was locked in place by the sword, unable to move at all.
If he carelessly moved and hurt his spine, he’ll become permanently paralyzed.
Even if he doesn’t hurt the spine, the sword was right under his heart, one careless movement and he’ll cut it open and die on the spot.
Right now, status, female, reputation, cultivation, winning or losing all become insignificant.
Facing death, Lee Chang An finally understood what the most important thing is.
“Please don’t kill me, I beg you, don’t kill me” His voice was trembling.
“Ah? You’re begging me to spare you?” he finally heard the devil’s voice from behind.
“Yes, yes, yes, I was wrong, please spare me”
Gu Qing Shan slightly tensed his sword, saying: “You’re not polite enough, first apologize to our Xiuxiu”
Who is Xiuxiu?
Lee Chang An unconsciously looked below the ring, looking for that little girl.
The little girl’s eyes were still in tears, glaring at him.
“Xiuxiu, I’m very sorry, I was wrong, I shouldn’t have spoken so carelessly, you’re a great person, please spare me” Lee Chang An endured the searing pain from inside his body and reluctantly said.
“Not sincere enough” Gu Qing Shan spoke.
His sword slightly moved.
“Aaaaaa” Lee Chang An was soaked in cold sweat, screaming.
“Again, this time your tone must be softer, your attitude must be sincere” Gu Qing Shan said.
“Xiuxiu… I was wrong, I beg you, forgive me” Lee Chang An said again.
“Senior brother…” Xiuxiu looked at Gu Qing Shan.
“Xiuxiu” Gu Qing Shan encouraged her: “This piece of shit is already pierce by senior brother’s sword, whatever Xiuxiu wants to do with him, senior brother will do it”
“Just follow your thoughts, if it can relieve your anger, even if senior brother has to slice him in two, I won’t refuse”
Gu Qing Shan then reached out at Lee Chang An’s Inventory Bag, throwing it to Xiuxiu.
“This will be considered something to make up for hurting for feelings, what do you say?” Gu Qing Shan asked Lee Chang An.
“Yes, make it up, make it up to Xiuxiu”
Lee Chang An smile looks even worse than a frown, everything he possess is in that Inventory Bag.
Xiuxiu took the Inventory Bag, hesitated a bit, then threw it back on the platform.
“What it is? No need to be formal with him” Gu Qing Shan said.
“All his stuff is so bad” Xiuxiu said, clearly didn’t want them.
Gu Qing Shan was stunned.
Xiuxiu is the one Bai Hua Fairy cares most about. Both her food and daily necessities, there’s nothing she uses that isn’t the best there is to offer in the entire cultivation world, so she really doesn’t care for Lee Chang An’s stuff.
“That’s not easy then” Gu Qing Shan said, a bit troubled, “if he can’t even make it up to you, how about I kill him?”
He talked about killing like it was eating a meal, not even a little bit of fluctuation in his emotion.
A psycho, he’s a killer psycho, Lee Chang An finally realized and began to regret picking a fight with such a person.
“Erm, you there…” one sect master hesitated, wanted to speak up.
“Ah? You want to stick your hands in a matter between Bai Hua Sect and Blue Clouds Pass?” Gu Qing Shan unexpectedly asked.
The sect master immediately shrank.
All the elders around also shut their mouths.
If it was a dispute between Great Monk of Sorrow and Xuanyuan Tianzun’s disciples, then they could try and mediate, but this is Bai Hua Fairy’s disciple.
Bai Hua Fairy is unpredictable, if you’re not a Saint and still annoy her, you should already be prepared for your funeral yesterday.
Gu Qing Shan thought a bit, then sent the Divine Phoenix Talisman over to Xiuxiu.
“This thing can release a Phoenix, it’s a decently good item, if you’re bored you can even exchange it for some spirit stones” Gu Qing Shan said.
Xiuxiu had seen the talisman before so she was a bit interested, hearing her senior brother said so, she took it.
Finally, her mood improved.
Gu Qing Shan seeing so, finally patted Lee Chang An on the shoulder, saying: “I myself have no bones to pick with you”
Lee Chang An nodded quickly, silently relieved that he was able to get out of dying today.
Great people don’t need to pay attention to every loss, first I need to guarantee my life, then I can think of other ways to kill this bastard later, otherwise, I won’t be able to lift my head for this entire lifetime.
If the mountain doesn’t move, the road will have to, one day, sooner or later, I’ll be able to find the chance to kill him.
Lee Chang An silently thought so, but doesn’t show a single bit on his face.
Yet, Gu Qing Shan’s tone changed: “But if I spare your life today, everyone will think they can just make up random rumors about our Bai Hua Sect without any consequences. That way, our reputation would be in trouble”
“So to prevent that, I can only kill you to make sure there aren’t anymore idiots”
Seeing the situation change so suddenly, Lee Chang An felt something wrong, shouting: “I was wrong, I shouldn’t have talked bad about Bai Hua Sect, I swear ——-“
Gu Qing Shan ignored him and continued: “Because of that, go ahead and die, as you die, everyone will see you as a model, they’ll know just what fate awaits those that splash dirty water on Bai Hua Sect”
Lee Chang An shouted louder: “WAIT! My Shifu is Xuan——“
“I don’t care who your Shifu is” Gu Qing Shan calmly said.
He pulled the sword out from his chest, and swung.
The corpse fell downward, as the head was lopped off, it rolls, apparently still holding an expression.
Lee Chang An’s head rolled and stopped at the corner of the ring.
The expression was full of fright; his mouth still opens as if wanting to say something to Gu Qing Shan.
Gu Qing Shan looked straight at the head, very solemnly and sincerely spoke: “In the next life, before splashing dirty water on someone, first consider their feelings”
Saying so, he put away his sword and jumped off the ring.
The entire place was silent.
