Chapter 84: To nip the problem in the bud
Translator: Sparrow_ Editor: Sparrow_
“You’re looking for galactic sand?”.
Upon hearing Wang Lin answer as such, Xue Chao waved his hand without demur: “Capture this kid first.”.
Wang Lin’s heart sank. He could never have thought that the opposite party would want to do him harm after just saying two lines.
Could it be that these people were also searching for galactic sand?
Wang Lin was baffled, but he didn’t have the spare time to dwell on it. A tight-uniformed youth behind Xue Chao was already heading towards him.
He released his mana fluctuations without any concealment. Even Wang Lin could determine that this was an enemy he was entirely unable to beat.
Qi Disciple level 8.
10 of Wang Lin who were at Qi Disciple level 2 wouldn’t even be a match for a level 8 Qi cultivator. The gap in cultivation level between the two parties was honestly too great.
Seeing as Lin Feng did not have any movement behind him, Wang Lin thought: “Does Master want to test me?”.
Wang Lin pulled himself together and looked calmly at the tight-uniformed youth walk over with a careless face. He clearly also doesn’t think that a little level 2 Qi cultivator could pose a threat to him.
This person’s attitude instead aroused the fighting spirit in Wang Lin’s heart: “Whether or not I can beat him is one thing, having the courage to fight is another.”.
Thinking along these lines, Wang Lin kept calm and quietly watched the opponent draw near.
Seeing Wang Lin appear as if to be scared dumbfounded and not moving at all, the tight-uniformed youth laughed saying: “If you’re smart you won’t need to suffer.”.
Finishing speaking, he extended his hand and grabbed at the air. His mana turned into an invisible big hand, shadowing over Wang Lin.
In an instant, the surrounding air around Wang Lin’s body all seemed to have frozen, crashing together towards Wang Lin and making it difficult for him to breathe.
But Wang Lin was not scared and was instead delighted because he had seen that his opponent was completely unconcerned with him. He didn’t even use any spells with this grab, he had just simply used his own mana to capture Wang Lin.
His movements were so carefree that there were openings and weak points everywhere over his body.
Wang Lin quietly inhaled a deep breath but still did not move recklessly. He silently awaited the enemy’s invisible big hand formed by mana and watched as it already arrived in front of him.
The tight-uniformed youth relaxed his mind even more which made sense. Not to mention that he had a foundation establishment stage Taoist Ma holding the line on his side, even without him a mere level 2 Qi cultivator kid could only obediently submit before him.
But right at that instant when his attitude was the most relaxed and careless, Wang Lin suddenly moved.
Right when the giant mana hand was about to grab him, Wang Lin suddenly stepped forward and extended his arms.
Wang Lin’s left hand formed a spell sign while his right index finger pointed out, directed straight at the tight-uniformed youth.
The tight-uniformed youth was stunned and he saw an extremely thin sliver of black air shoot out from Wang Lin’s right index finger, straightening into a thread and shooting towards him.
This black thread was like a knife cutting through tofu, easily piercing through the giant invisible hand formed by the tight-uniformed youth’s mana. The condensed mana did not cause any obstruction to the black thread and it let the black thread pass through without any resistance.
In the time that the tight-uniformed youth was slightly dazed, this black thread had already arrived in front of him.
Seeing this, Lin Feng who was in the back immediately started to laugh silently.
The reason he purposely didn’t appear was indeed that he wanted to observe Wang Lin’s overall performance when encountering trouble.
The result made Lin Feng extremely pleased.
The opposite party suddenly turned hostile and Wang Lin was surprised but did not fall into a panic. Facing an opponent much more powerful than himself, he calmly seized the opportunity and suddenly attacked right when the enemy was the least vigilant.
Finger of Styx, a skill derived from the River Styx Nirvana Mantra was a skill that Lin Feng had imparted to Wang Lin earlier, which the latter diligently practiced.
Pointing with his finger, the mana mixed with the aura of the River Styx Primordial Water condensed into a thread that was virtually capable of destroying anything. The opponent’s level 8 Qi cultivator mana may have been greatly superior to Wang Lin, but the River Styx Primordial Water performed its special effect of purifying the mana of others and directly pierced through the opponent’s giant mana hand.
Looking at the tight-uniformed youth’s stunned face, Wang Lin’s heart quivered. Although his reaction was calm, this was after all his first time fighting with someone.
Thinking of the end conclusion that he could possibly kill this person, Wang Lin couldn’t help but slightly hesitate.
With just this slight hesitation, the black thread formed by the mana of the Finger of Styx instantly trembled and lost stability.
Lin Feng wrinkled his forehead and cursed a little in his heart.
While in the opposing group, Taoist Ma’s eyebrows shook and he relaxed his heart.
Sure enough, the black thread slightly quivered and its speed slowed down a bit.
The tight-uniformed youth had already reacted over and just barely crooked his head, dodging Wang Lin’s Finger of Styx.
Xue Chao and his other follower were dazed for a moment and their faces revealed an expression of interest. Evidently, they also didn’t think that the tight-uniformed youth would nearly screw up.
Taoist Ma’s gaze fell upon Wang Lin.
He was after all a Foundation Establishment stage cultivator, his sensitivity towards mana fluctuations was far superior to Qi cultivator stage cultivators. Even though at first he also didn’t think that Wang Lin had the balls to resist, but right when Wang Lin moved he already perceived it.
Taoist Ma also didn’t think that Wang Lin’s Finger of Styx spell would actually be so domineering. No matter how careless that tight-uniformed youth was, he ultimately had a cultivation level of Qi cultivator level 8. He was far stronger than Wang Lin, who would have thought that he would have his defense directly broken by Wang Lin.
The difference in level between the two people was too great. Besides the tight-uniformed youth’s carelessness, the subtleties and dominance of Wang Lin’s spell were also an important factor in making up for such a scenario.
Taoist Ma started to become interested in Wang Lin.
On the other hand, Lin Feng sighed and thought: “Even though he’s destined to mature into decisive main character, this was after all his first time fighting with someone. It’s impossible for him to be as cold-blooded as a machine.”.
Even though he evaded Wang Lin’s Finger of Styx, the tight-uniformed youth still felt embarrassed. His entire face instantly turned red and he glared at Wang Lin. He was truly angered by Wang Lin.
The tight-uniformed youth clapped his hands together. The mist in the air rapidly gathered towards him, turning into a savage water dragon in front of his chest and then clawing towards Wang Lin.
Right then Wang Lin was also regretful in his heart. His momentaneous hesitation had resulted in him not beating the snake to death, and now the snake is about to bite back.
“Show no mercy when you attack, attack not when you show mercy. If I fight again in the future I must use my full power, I absolutely cannot give the enemy the chance to retaliate.”.
Wang Lin’s face was dark and he made up his mind.
Facing the enemy’s fierce spell, Wang Lin was not fearful. His hands formed a spell sign and his mind communicated with the Pearl of Styx.
Even with all of the treasures in Lin Feng’s hands, there wasn’t a single one that could match the wonders of the Pearl of Styx. Of all of the treasures that he has came in contact with, perhaps only the Nefarious Almighty Sword was capable of battling it. But this item had been greatly damaged and a lot of its power could not be unleashed.
Moreover, with Wang Lin’s current cultivation level he could not even exert 1/10000s of the Pearl of Styx’s power. But he had refined this treasure using his blood and has also practiced the River Styx Nirvana Mantra. He could already control the Pearl of Styx, albeit with some difficulty.
The enemy just so happened to be using a water class spell. River Styx Primordial Water was ranked amongst the six great true waters, the sovereigns of water. It also seemed to have been angered by the water dragon baring its fangs in front of it.
Following Wang Lin’s thoughts, the Pearl of Styx slowly flew up, emitting a pale yellow light in the air.
Upon coming in contact with the yellow light, the water dragon instantly fell apart.
The tight-uniformed youth was dumbfounded.
Xue Chao was also dazed. Looking at the Pearl of Styx again his eyes instantly revealed a color of greed and desire.
