Gu Qing Shan looks at the broken bone javelins behind his opponent and sighed.
He tilted his head, speaking to the Holo-Brain on the ground: “Record: A 5th stage Man Killer Fiend has appeared, aside from the Martial Saint, 4th stage Elementalists, or highly awaken God’s Chosens, others aren’t able to fight against it”
“Recorded. Footage capture has begun” a female voice was heard from the Holo-Brain, “additionally, I have to remind sir Gu Qing Shan, according to your recorded personal fighting strength, you also have no way to win against him”
“I have to try to buy time either way, otherwise all these people will die” Gu Qing Shan said.
Impartial Goddess hurriedly replied: “Currently calling in reinforcement, please do your best to remain safe”
Gu Qing Shan nodded.
He looked at the young man, then very seriously said: “First time we’re meeting, hello”
The young man was a bit stunned, but replied: “Hello”
Gu Qing Shan turned and talked to the Holo-Brain again: “Although he’s been infected, his daily conditional reflected and habits still hasn’t been overwritten. For example, daily greetings and such”
Gu Qing Shan looked again at the young man: “Can you still remember your loved ones?”
With a band, the Holo-Brain was broken into pieces by a blood-colored streak.
The young man had a friendly look on his face, asking: “Shouldn’t you be writing your will right now? Or was that just now your will?”
“Seems like he remembers, but doesn’t want to talk about it” Gu Qing Shan looked at the broken Holo-Brain, frowned and said: “Prone to breaking others’ belongings, uneducated”
The young man instantly reacted.
The blood-colored glow from his body expanded outwards intensely, as flames both white and black in color appeared one after another in his palm.
“You garbage, you dare to say that I’m uneducated!?” the young man’s red eyes glowed in frenzy, “I’ll kill you right now!”
The bone javelins behind him opened up again, as the glow stuck onto it and wiggled, it almost seems like a real pair of wings.
As the wings opened, the young man jumped really high up.
He pointed his palm at Gu Qing Shan.
Gu Qing Shan’s heart jumped, feeling a sense of danger throughout his entire body.
A blood-colored flame appeared out of nowhere at Gu Qing Shan’s location, exploding into a deep crater.
“Dead ——-no, where’s the body?” the young man’s face of relief disappeared as quick as it appeared.
Gu Qing Shan was right below him, kicking the ground to jump up to where he was.
“How strange, disappearing at will?” the young man wasn’t worried at all about them clashing, only muttered as he thought.
“What should I do about him then?” his body shifted, about to block Gu Qing Shan.
They were quickly approaching.
Gu Qing Shan’s sword thrust forward, about to active Secret Art: Water Flow Severance.
Seeing the glowing sword phantoms on the word, the young man felt unease, suddenly sped up and turned into a twisted blood glow behind Gu Qing Shan.
“It’s the end” he said.
His fingers have already turned into deadly sharp claws.
The young man thrust his hand at Gu Qing Shan’s back.
Gu Qing Shan retracted his strike, turning the blade backwards and slash.
The sword phantoms on the sword disappeared, instead turning into a travelling blue arc of Lightning.
This slash was extremely miraculous, not at all like a panicked strike.
The entire process from him retracting the thrust to again attack was done in a natural fluid motion.
The young man’s wrist hit the blade of the sword.
“Seven Shackles” activate!
The young man yelled in agony, both hands were struck backwards.
Gu Qing Shan pursued.
The young man couldn’t control his body, only relying on the jerking back motion to dodge the slash.
Gu Qing Shan took another step forward, slashing again.
An endless flow of sword phantom concentrated on the blade ———-Crescent Slash!
Gu Qing Shan’s entire body turned into a white crescent moon, appearing in the sky.
The young man was bisected, then blew away by the fierce wind pressure.
Gu Qing Shan landed.
The entire battle process lasted a few seconds.
In the blink of an eye, the two of them exchanged attack and defense several times, quickly determining win and loss.
Both the soldiers and Professionists couldn’t even close their eyes, no one was able to guess that the fighting concluded in a matter of a few breaths.
But Gu Qing Shan wasn’t the least bit relieved.
He looked up solemnly at the sky.
The bisected body turned back into a blood glow and combined together again.
The young man appeared in front of them again, unharmed.
“So a person’s skill can actually be this strong huh”
He shook his wrist, cracking his head while exclaiming.
“But as I said, before overwhelming strength, no matter how much skill you have, it’s useless” the smirked, looking at Gu Qing Shan.
“You have a point” Gu Qing Shan put the sword back into the air, taking out his bow.
The took out an arrow, knocking it.
The young man was stunned again.
He could see the bow very clearly, but unable to feel its existence at all.
That made him a bit uneasy.
Gu Qing Shan didn’t care what he thought, only started to shoot as soon as he pulled the bow enough.
1 flurry is 10 arrows, and Gu Qing Shan fired off 3 Shifting Flurries at once, blocking off the young man’s escape paths.
“Oh my god!” someone exclaimed from the men.
His sword skills can still at least be understood in the realm of humanity, but no one has ever seen such weird archery before.
The young man tried dodging left and right, but got hit by every single arrow. He couldn’t help but temporarily retreat and hid behind the statue.
“Useless useless useless useless useless!” the young man roared in disdain.
The blood-colored glow flowed from his body, almost like it was melting away the arrows as they disappeared.
“Useless” at the same time, Gu Qing Shan sighed and said the same.
Their level of strength is too far apart; he can only barely keep up thanks to his skills.
Gu Qing Shan tapped his Inventory Bag, took out a pill and swallowed it.
His spirit energy is quickly depleting, the amount of times he can use his skills in a row is decreasing, so he must replenish it with pills.
A split second later, a blood-colored shadow suddenly flew forward, straight towards Gu Qing Shan.
Gu Qing Shan raised his bow again!
The young man was knocked flying backwards, but didn’t even care, turned his body around mid-air and flew forward again.
Gu Qing Shan’s bow moved again, Shifting Flurry!
Grey shadows that fills the sky flew in unpredictable directions, like a rain of snakes attacking the flying Man Killer Fiend.
“Ahahaha, useless, your arrows can’t kill me!”
He already knows how strong those arrows are, this time if he ignores the wounds, he’ll be able to kill that guy!
The young man turned into a blood-colored shadow again, became even quicker.
The shadow twisted and turned, flying past the sharp arrows as it made its way to Gu Qing Shan.
His hands were turned into sharp blades of blood, about to use the momentum to bisect his opponent.
The young man smirked cruelly, waiting for that moment of ecstasy.
But in that moment the bow disappeared from his opponent’s hand.
Instead, the sword once again appeared, pointing straight at himself.
This time, the distance between them wasn’t even a meter, close enough for any mistakes to be the difference between life and death.
The young man was already flying as fast as he could, feeling extremely uneasy ————–no good, he can’t even dodge away anymore!
Taking that chance, Gu Qing Shan activated his sword skill.
Secret Art: Water Flow Severance!
Bang Bang Bang Bang Bang!
The overwhelming stream of sword phantoms concentrated on one spot, exploding one after another like a series of cannon balls, it connected with the young man 5 times, shredding his body and knocked it flying backwards.
A dull crash was heard as the young man flew all the way to the other side of the square, kicking up a huge storm of dust.
“Nicely done!” a colonel shouted.
The rest of them were also relieved.
Gu Qing Shan frowned again, putting the sword sideways in front of him to block.
“Stand up, I know this type of attack can’t kill you yet” he said.
The young man moved a bit, sure enough kicking away the debris and stood up.
“How surprising” the young man said, “unfortunately you’re not a Man Killer Fiend, otherwise I would want to take you as a subordinate too”
His eyes contained praise, surprised, but more of it was killing intent and hatred.
“You can’t pay me enough” Gu Qing Shan said.
“Hmph, seems like I’ll have to waste a bit more time before I can end the hunt today” the young man said as he walked step by step towards Gu Qing Shan.
At this moment, all the Professionists’ Holo-Brain lit up at the same time.
Impartial Goddess’ voice was heard.
“Martial Saint Zhang Zong Yang will arrive at the scene in 1 minute, sir Gu Qing Shan please do your best to stay alive”
The young man’s eyes contracted.
He grew up hearing Martial Saint Zhang Zong Yang’s name, but this time it was in horror instead of admiration.
He can’t get hurt more badly. Even though he is the strongest Man Killer Fiend at the moment, there’s countless other competition hiding in the shadows, waiting for him to slip up.
As he was hesitating, Gu Qing Shan had already taken out the bow, knocking an arrow and aimed at him.
He cursed, then turned into a blood glow and disappeared.
Gu Qing Shan waited for a bit before lowering the Night Rain.
He was finally relieved.
This fight was quite a huge risk, as the opponent was much more powerful than he was, so every single step he took was like walking on a tightrope.
“Evolution speed is quite considerable, but still lack a bit battle experience”
Saying so, he tapped his Inventory Bag, took out and swallowed another pill.
His spirit energy was pretty much already drained, if it weren’t for the fact that he was an expert in battle and didn’t show any signs of getting weaker, the opponent would’ve already retaliated.
This type of crazy monster that can only be dealt with by the Martial Saint, 4th stage Elementalist and deeply awoken God’s Chosen isn’t something he can actually go toe-to-toe with at this point in time.
Just like that Man Killer Fiend said, his cultivation is still a bit lacking.
And just like that Man Killer Fiend praised, if it weren’t for the fact that his sword skills are top-notch, foiling the monster’s attempts at overpowering him, if it were any other cultivator, they would’ve already died.
“The Martial Saint is coming?” Gu Qing Shan asked.
Impartial Goddess replied: “Not that quickly, he’s still 10 minutes away”
Gu Qing Shan was confused: “But you said 1 minute just now”
Impartial Goddess: “This was the newest counter measure devised”
Gu Qing Shan praised: “That’s quite good, you can actually lie now”
Impartial Goddess asked: “Is this your praise?”
Gu Qing Shan answered: “It is, also, tell the Martial Saint that he does not have to be in too much of a hurry and can take his time”
Gu Qing Shan walked towards everyone else, asking: “Can you still move?”
Many of them nodded their heads, looking straight at him, as if looking at a huge dinosaur that’s wearing human skin.
“That’s great, then let’s go back quickly, after the Man Killer Fiend left, the horde of Man Eater Fiends will swarm this place”
As Gu Qing Shan said so, he looked at the red Man Eater Fiend corpse, then again at the ragged soldiers and Professionists.
“How many of you are still strong enough, help me bring this thing back”
“I am!” the entire bunch that could still move all replied at once.
Gu Qing Shan looked at them in surprise.
“So many of you, great, then you all carry them”
He quickly left.
