Chapter 54 of 150 chapters

Gu Qing Shan bent forward and kept running, sword in hand.

Behind him, Leng Tian Xing was also casting spells one after another, freezing all the demons chasing behind him in place.

While all the demons that are rushing from the front were cut into pieces by Gu Qing Shan’s sword.

Both of them moved forward in the sea of demons and advanced another few dozens meters.

Suddenly Leng Tian Xing called out with a hoarse voice: “I can only keep going for another 10 breaths at most”

Gu Qing Shan quickly turned around so see that many demons have already regained their senses and are rushing towards them.

All of them are at least Foundation Establishment realm, a few are even Golden Core realm, a single one of Leng Tian Xing’s spells couldn’t kill them, plus he couldn’t hit all of them, so his spell casting speed will be insufficient very soon.

This can’t go one, otherwise Leng Tian Xing will die!

And if he dies, I alone can’t even hope to reach the safe place.

“Do you have any talismans?” Gu Qing Shan contemplated, then asked.

“I do, but I’ve already used a lot, there aren’t that many left” Leng Tian Xing answered.

“Let’s change places, conserver your spirit energy, use talismans instead ——-you only need to open up a path to advance, no need to care whether or not the demons die” Gu Qing Shan said

“You’ll take the back?” Leng Tian Xing asked.

“Hm, I will” Gu Qing Shan answered


Leng Tian Xing stared at him carefully.

During a dire situation, if they can’t manage then the one at the back will definitely die first.

Gu Qing Shan’s action this time really painted him in a new light again.

It was at this moment that he truly considers Gu Qing Shan a comrade.

“Get ready”

Gu Qing Shan said as he started unlocking his armor.

All the belts on the standard Vanguard legion armor was unlocked, as Gu Qing Shan swung his hand and threw it towards the demons at the back.

These flesh-hungry demons, even when they saw their own kind killed one after another by Leng Tian Xing’s spells they didn’t even retreat, only advanced more and more.

Yet, as soon as the armor covered in foul rotting flesh flew towards them, all the demons pinched their noses and ran away.

It really is too foul, even Leng Tian Xing himself had to use this spirit energy to block his breath and all the pores on his body to keep himself from fainting from the smell.


Gu Qing Shan shouted as the two of them switched places.

Leng Tian Xing took out a bunch of talisman, throwing them out one by one, knocking the demons that still haven’t gathered in front flying.

This isn’t the same as spell casting, he only needed to use the least amount of spirit energy to trigger it, so the attack rate is very high, the only weakness is that this is basically the same as burning money.

But Leng Tian Xing is a wealthy young master who never lacks money, since every else already died and only the 2 of them are still alive, he doesn’t care to hold back anymore and decide to use all the talismans he has.

As the demons from both sides retreated from the smell, when the two of them switched places they even advanced a few dozens more meters.

“I can’t believe this stench actually works” Leng Tian Xing thought a bit and said.

If back then, he had compromised and smeared the Rotting Eater Demon flesh all over his body….

“Are you regretting now?” Gu Qing Shan asked.

“No, definitely not” Leng Tian Xing’s face paled.

The two of them were still moving quickly.

The further they ran, the smell from the armor almost became unnoticeable.

Very quickly, the frenzied demons started to catch up with them again.

“Kai Shan!”

Gu Qing Shan shouted loudly as he held the sword with both hands, the aura on his body suddenly became heavy.

One strike.

Boom ——-pow!

Any demons that got hit by the sword got cut in two and knocked rolling back from the excessive force.

All the demons on the way were also got knocked down by the rolling pieces of demon corpses.

Kai Shan Style is a heavy sword style, each strike contains the power of a thousand tons, so any foe that’s caught off guard will not get out unscathed.

But Kai Shan Style is also famously very slow in their movements, making it easy to dodge.

Normal Sword Cultivators will not use this kind of style that’s full of openings.

Only the most stupid swordsmen, and the most skillful swordsmen dare to use this Sword Style.

Right now the sword was practically screaming, as each strike carried with it a white misty air, knocking the demons away one after another.

Each strike clears out a bunch of them, so each strike relieves the pressure on them by a lot.

The two of them were like pieces of driftwood in the middle of a sea storm, having to try their best to go on, barely making it through each time.

Gu Qing Shan had already ignored any sort of moves and just used Kai Shan Style to swing around wildly.

Under the current situation where demons are rushing them like waves in the sea, they have no need to consider whether they’ll hit or miss, as each attack will surely hit a bunch of demons.

Kai Shan Style’s strength was being used by Gu Qing Shan to its utmost limit.

“Quickly advance” Leng Tian Xing shouted.

“Coming!” Gu Qing Shan swung one time, then quickly shifted his body and retreated.

At this moment, the two of them were blocking the advancing sea of demons and making sure their movement were on the correct path at the same time.

But since there were so many demons attacking them, as the person in the back, Gu Qing Shan surely couldn’t prevent every attack.

Very quickly, just like Wu Jin and Ma Liu, Gu Qing Shan’s body was covered in blood.

Gu Qing Shan just endured and held on, continued swinging his sword.

“Kai Shan!”

He shouted silently.

Each strike as heavy as a mountain, crushing the demons.

This is a life and death situation; he definitely can’t be weak.

Since there were so many demons attacking, Gu Qing Shan had already ignored most of them, only blocking the most fatal ones.

Time passes quickly, in the blink of an eye, they have already made a lot of progress again.

Their destination is already in sight.

Gu Qing Shan’s body was wounded all over, many places even had flesh ripped away by the demons, showing bloody bones.

Wounds of this type were numerous, almost like he was suffering from some sort of flesh-rending punishment. (1)

But Gu Qing Shan’s face was as calm and composed as ever, his sword swings continued nonstop, seemingly unfazed.

Leng Tian Xing’s inner sight took a glance and was shocked to no end.

5 breaths later, Gu Qing Shan suddenly asked: “How far?”

“Only 30 meters more, I can see the cave entrance!” Leng Tian Xing was also panicking.


This was the time that Gu Qing Shan was waiting for.

He shifted his body to one side, held the sword in both hands and pointed the tip as the sea of demon in front, and muttered.

“Secret Art”

In just a second, the spirit energy in his Dantian rushed upwards and out, flowing through his hands into the Longsword.

The Longsword let out a ‘wu wu’ sound.

Gu Qing Shan had calculated every single bit of spirit energy exactly, saving just enough spirit energy for this moment.

His spirit energy was just barely enough to use this Secret art.

Leng Tian Xing pupils contracted.

With his knowledge, of course he can tell how strong this Sword technique is.

What technique is this, why haven’t I seen it before?

Leng Tian Xing searched his memory and found that this technique was different from every single sword style he knows.

Could it be a Secret Art?

Called a Sword Cultivator’s spells, it’s not something that just any random person will have.

Leng Tian Xing was incredibly shaken, but held back his urge to turn around and only used his inner sight to observe.

In just a second, Gu Qing Shan’s fighting spirit has reached its peak.

While the Qian Qi sword was letting out a ‘wu wu’ sound before, it suddenly went silent.

Intense killing intent flowed along the blade, enough to make you shiver.

“It is, it’s a Secret Art, he knows a Secret Art!”

Leng Tian Xing couldn’t help but screamed inside.

The last bit of pride he had left in him was now gone.

In front of Gu Qing Shan, the flow of demons was stopped like the flow of water, demons that were behind couldn’t wait and climbed up, stepping on demons in front to move forward.

The demons stacked up higher and higher, became a towering several-foot-tall wall of demons, crashing down on both of them.

“Water Flow Severance!”

Gu Qing Shan shouted, his sword pointed directly forward.

If you can slow down time at this very moment, you’d see on the blade of Qian Qi sword was layers on layers of phantom swords, concentrated in one spot.

In a split second, the tsunami of phantom swords overflowed.

And the blade of the sword that released all that power, was slowly cracking.

Numerous cracks grew more and more, then fully covered the sword.

The very moment before the sword broke apart.

Heaven and earth were silent.


A thunderous rhythmic sound like the giants of ancient time themselves were beating the drum can be heard.

Boom! Boom! Boom! Boom! Boom! Boom!

Blinding phantom swords bursts from the tip of Qian Qi sword, rushed forward to create a deafening noise.

The huge wall made up of demons were blown up, fell crashing down, scattered into dust and disappeared.

The whole sea of demon was no more, revealing the desolate, desert-like landscape. On it were numerous cut-off hands and feet, the smell of blood in the air were so thick it could make you sick.

The demons that were rushing here from afar held faces of fear and uncertainty, stopped right at the edge of where the phantom swords exploded, didn’t dare to take even a single step forward.

One sword strike could split a river in half and stop its flow.

Having such power, it’s only suitable to call it the Water Flow Severance!


A small sound was heard, as Qian Qi sword couldn’t handle the power of a Secret Art, it broke into pieces and scattered.

The only thing left was the handle still in Gu Qing Shan’s hand.

Gu Qing Shan gritted his teeth and felt a deep sense of loss.

He took so long to find a sword, only to break it with a single use of a Secret Art.

Reluctantly, he threw away the handle, then rushed forward.

Mountain Levelling Rush!

Gu Qing Shan moved forward, blocked a hungry demon for Leng Tian Xing and broke its neck.

“We’re going!” he shouted

“On it!”

Leng Tian Xing also knows that they are already at the last leg, suppressed the surprise in his heart and triggered all the talisman in his hands, throwing them out like they’re not worth any money.
