Chapter 836: If I Let Him Go, What Are You Going to Do?
Translator: Sparrow Translations Editor: Sparrow Translations
After seeing both the Shaoshang and Guanchong Swords, the face of the Virtuous Zen Master turned serious.
These two swords had been cultivated by many disciples of the Mount Shu Sword Sect and their powers had increased significantly over time. They were magic treasures in the Mahayana realm. In the entire Divine Lands, they were the elites among the magic treasures in the Mahayana realm.
As sword treasures, they were even more merciless and possessed the powers to destroy the Heavens and Earth.
After the virtual entity of the Guanchong Swordmaster was crushed by Lin Feng on the Heavenly Cart Peak and he fell back to the Immortal Soul First Level, he was unable to summon the full strength of the Guanchong Sword even though he remained as the swordmaster of the Guanchong Sword.
Whereas the Shaoshang Swordmaster could unleash the powers of the Shaoshang Sword to its limits. As he combined with his sword, the limits of the sword could even be overcome, as the powers of the sword multiplied.
In fact, with the Guanchong Sword in his hands, the Guanchong Swordmaster was not someone to be belittled. Among all cultivators in the Immortal Soul First Level, he was one of the few at the very top.
The Shaoshang Sword was the most ferocious and domineering sword among the six swords. It specialized in attacking. If the Virtuous Zen Master had the Forever-Bright Bodhi Heart Lamp with him, he could at least match up to the Shaoshang Swordmaster.
But now, he did not have the Bodhi Heart Lamp. Furthermore, Jie Luoshi even dealt him a huge blow. Right now, the Virtuous Zen Master had to be careful even as he faced the Guanchong Swordmaster.
As the Dual Polarity Peak faced Jie Luoshi, he was already in trouble. As the Shaoshang Swordmaster and Guanchong Swordmaster attacked, he could not help Xiao Yan and the Virtuous Zen Master.
The Shaoshang Swordmaster roared furiously and the Shaoshang Sword in his hand released a deafening sound. A brutal sword radiance, which seemed like a meteor, grazed void space and attacked Xiao Yan and the Virtuous Zen Master!
A ball of fog that contained countless souls were passed to the Virtuous Zen Master by Xiao Yan, “Leave first. Bring them to the Cloud Mirror City.”
In the next moment, purplish-blue flames attacked the pitch-dark void space, turning into an image of a Great White Tiger. This tiger burst towards the Shaoshang Swordmaster!
Void space cracked open slowly and the Seven Mansions of the Great White Tiger flashed a little. Xiao Yan revealed the Nefarious Great White Tiger. In its body, it’s as if seven spots of stars were shining.
The Nefarious Almighty Sword was drawn and combined with the image of the Great White Tiger. Xiao Yan summoned the powers of the Nefarious Great White Tiger to its extreme and received the attack of the Shaoshang Sword.
This was different from the previous battle with the Grand Moon Sword, as two extremely ferocious swords were clashing now!
The Nefarious Spectral Primordial Fire was the first Primordial Fire that Xiao Yan controlled. It was the foundation that he built his powers on, and it was also the Primordial Fire that he cultivated and controlled the best.
The Nefarious Almighty Sword contained a huge amount of Nefarious Spectral Primordial Fire, just that the fire was sealed. Only when Xiao Yan’s cultivation reached a higher level could he summoned more Nefarious Spectral Primordial Fire.
This Nefarious Spectral Primordial Fire was the king of all fires. Its pure destructive strength was far superior than the other Primordial Fires. As he fought this time, Xiao Yan released all control of the fire and exhibited the powers of the Nefarious Almighty Sword fully. He did not conserve any strength.
As he released his control of the fire, he gave up control of it. There was only a greater dominance, ferocity, power, release of force, explosion and even more explosion!
It was a pure, destructive power!
The boundless Nefarious Spectral Primordial Fire was unleashed from the sword, turning half of void space into a sea of fire.
As the sword struck, an injury was inflicted onto void space.
As both parties collided, the Nefarious Great White Tiger was crushed and it disappeared. The physical martial arts foundation of it was destroyed by the Shaoshang Sword. The boundless purplish-blue flames danced in the sky.
Whereas the sword radiance of the Shaoshang Sword was also crushed, converting into streaks of flowing light that expanded in all directions.
But even though it was crushed, the streaks of flowing light that formed were still very frightening for those who were below the Immortal Soul Stage.
Amidst these flowing lights, a cold radiance flashed. Very soon, this radiance became brighter and brighter. It was actually the Shaoshang Swordmaster who was wielding the Shaoshang Sword and stabbing towards Xiao Yan!
The Cosmic Form above Xiao Yan’s head revealed itself. The head formed from the Nefarious Spectral Primordial Fire revealed a domineering look and roared.
Ferocious Nefarious Spectral Primordial Fire surged in space and attacked the blade of the Shaoshang Sword repeatedly.
On the Nefarious Almighty Sword, the mark of the Netherworld Sea re-appeared once again, filled with apocalyptic images.
The purplish-blue Nefarious Spectral Primordial Fire was very domineering. It wreaked havoc in the Heavens and Earth, destroying everything in its way.
Xiao Yan seemed to have opened a door to the Netherworld, guiding the countless disasters from there into the Greater World. These disasters did not just want to wreak havoc in the Netherworld Sea. A huge amount of Nefarious Spectral Primordial fire surged out from the mark and descended in this plane of void space!
All these years, Xiao Yan had been cultivating tirelessly. Besides the increase of his powers, his understanding and control of the Nefarious Almighty Sword was also raised.
The brutal purplish-blue fire raged and kept on attacking the Shaoshang Swordmaster and the Shaoshang Sword. At the end, even the Shaoshang Sword was terrified.
Calamities and disasters were brought over into the Greater World from the Netherworld Sea.
The expression of the Shaoshang Swordmaster turned serious. As he roared, his body shot out sword radiances. He exuded a mighty aura and his body became a 100 feet tall. As he wielded the huge sword, he looked awe-inspiring.
This was the virtual entity of the Shaoshang Swordmaster which commanded the Shaoshang Sword. He wanted to finish Xiao Yan off!
The Shaoshang Sword also ballooned in size and its length reached over 200 feet. As the virtual entity of the Shaoshang Swordmaster held this sword and jerked the blade, the Nefarious Spectral Primordial Fire around was destroyed.
When Xiao Yan received the attack of the Shaoshang Swordmaster, the Virtuous Zen Master recited a Buddhist chant at that moment. He took the ball of fog and quickly escaped.
Li Yuanfang, Jieyu and the rest were dragged away by the Virtuous Zen Master’s powers, but they were still able to see what was happening.
Jieyu’s expression turned serious, “Although it’s not the Shaoyang Swordmaster or the Shaoze Swordmaster, the Shaoshang Swordmaster still has the Shaoshang Sword in his hands. Along with the help of others, will Elder Xiao be able to handle them?”
The Mount Shu Six Passages of Sword had their strengths and weaknesses. With Xiao Yan’s powers and his battling style, the sword that he preferred to face the most was the Grand Moon Sword.
As he faced the Guanchong Swordmaster, while he detested it, he was not worried. Deciding victory between the both of them was going to be tough, as the opponent would defend with all his might, leaving Xiao Yan with little confidence of penetrating through the defense. However, if the Guanchong Swordmaster was focused on defending, it would mean that he was unlikely to attack Xiao Yan.
Against the Shaoshang and Lixiong Swords, it would be an intense battle. The likely result of the clash against these two swords was heavy injuries inflicted on both parties.
Whereas the two swords that were the most difficult to deal with for Xiao Yan were the Shaoyang and Shaoze swords. If the Shaoze Swordmaster brought the Shaoze Sword to fight him right now, it would be disastrous.
Li Yuanfang remained calm and said softly, “I believe in First Senior.”
The Virtuous Zen Master could only trust Xiao Yan now. He was already gravely injured, and had no choice but to accede to Xiao Yan’s arrangement. He escaped with everyone.
It was not time for acting slowly at this critical moment. If he delayed any longer, he would only cause more trouble for Xiao Yan and Dual Polarity Peak.
On the contrary, if he escaped quickly, leaving Xiao Yan and Dual Polarity Peak free of worries, he would have a better chance of surviving.
However, the Guanchong Swordmaster would not let him leave. He rushed to the Virtuous Zen Master with the Guanchong Sword. The pitch-black blade of the sword shone with a dim radiance, as if there was a black hole. As the black hole contained the entire world, aging, collapse and destruction ensued.
“Virtuous Zen, who’s letting you go?”
Although there was only a little of the sword radiance, it seemed to contain countless things within it. The Guanchong Sword seemed to move very slowly, such that even a normal person could be faster.
But it was because of such a sword that seemed to have caused the Virtuous Zen Master to react even slower. He was unable to dodge the sword and could only turn back to receive the attack.
“If I let him go, what are you going to do?”
Amidst a brutal roar, it was as if a Holy Vermilion Bird had brushed across void space. This bird was entirely golden, as if it was the Sun. As it brushed across void space, it landed in front of the Guanchong Swordmaster. It was Xiao Yan!
He left the Nefarious Almighty Sword behind and used the ferocious, demonic fire that surged out of the Netherworld Sea mark to hold the Shaoshang Swordmaster back for a while. Following that, he used his speed to come to the Guanchong Swordmaster!
Xiao Yan was unkind. As he flipped his palm, a lotus seat that bordered between yellowish-golden and pale-white appeared. On the lotus seat, there was a half-red, half-blue stamen that was swaying non-stop.
The domineering Tri-Fire Lotus pointed towards the head of the Guanchong Swordmaster. As he summoned his sword, the Guanchong Swordmaster battled the Heaven Fire Lotus of Xiao Yan.
He was only in the Immortal Soul First Level, thus if any Tri-Fire Lotus exploded on his body, he was more than likely to be dead.
Just at the moment when Xiao Yan attacked the Guanchong Swordmaster, void space split open and the Shaoshang Swordmaster was already behind him!
But he was not exhibiting the art of swordplay of the Shaoshang Sword, but the Shaoze Sword!
Even the Aurous Core Stage sword cultivator, Liu Yang, from Mount Shu cultivated both the Shaoshang and Shaoze Sword in the past. Thus, for the Shaoshang Swordmaster, he could only have cultivated even more of the Mount Shu Six Passages of Sword!
The six swords came from the same source and cultivating multiple of them could exponentially increase one’s powers. None of the Immortal Soul Stage Elders would only have cultivated one type of sword. It’s just that they had a specific art of swordplay that was their foundation.
Xiao Yan forsook the Nefarious Almighty Sword to delay the Shaoshang Swordmaster’s time, before using his speed to stop the Guanchong Swordmaster. The Shaoshang Swordmaster reacted to this by unleashing the Shaoze Sword and left the Nefarious Almighty Sword behind, rushing towards Xiao Yan!
As the Shaoshang Swordmaster displayed his art of swordplay, the Shaoze Sword returned to the Shaoshang Sword again. A brutal sword radiance flashed and attacked Xiao Yan at this point!
At the same time, the Guanchong Swordmaster, Mountain-Breaking Swordmaster and the Chongyan Swordmaster chased after the Virtuous Zen Master.
“None of you shall think of leaving!”
Xiao Yan bellowed, and a giant appeared suddenly. It leaped towards the Mountain-Breaking Swordmaster, revealing its outburst of energy. It was the God-Slaying Puppet Xiao Yan obtained from the Marquis of Jinghuan.
This puppet was fully cultivated by Xiao Yan. As the puppet leaped towards Ning Lang, it stalled him even if it did not resist him. This prevented Ning Lang from chasing after the Virtuous Zen Master anymore.
At the same time, an all-engulfing black light was summoned and caused the Chongyan Swordmaster to be dragged within.
In the black light, a huge flag swayed. This flag was the Immortal Royal Flag!
