Chapter 852: Overcoming All Obstacles On His Own
Translator: Sparrow Translations Editor: Sparrow Translations
The jade-green skeletal head formed a light projection, which was the image of King Taishan. But now, he was extremely weak. However, he was still healing gradually.
His body even burned with jade-green flames that slowly converted into the appearance of the Six Form Skeletal Flaming King.
The Spell of Death Substitution of the White Skeleton Sect was weird and unpredictable. If Shi Tianhao thought that he had killed King Taishan, he would have escaped with the Hexagonal White Bone Pagoda. Although his powers were greatly depleted, they would be restored in time to come.
However, Shi Tianhao’s Final Holy Light discovered something weird as the virtual entity of King Taishan was slaughtered. As he saw the Hexagonal White Bone Pagoda fleeing, how could he have not known?
The Kun Peng Pavilion stopped the Hexagonal White Bone Pagoda, while Shi Tianhao struck his fist towards the jade-green skeletal head.
The jade-green skeletal head spat out a huge white bone skeleton towards Shi Tianhao. The entire skeletal structure was transparent like crystals, as it brought along a fishy smell.
Shi Tianhao snorted and further conjured his Hundun powers to crush the white bone skeleton. The crushed bones gathered to form the word of “Yin”, which continued to attack Shi Tianhao.
Shi Tianhao’s expression did not change. He summoned the powers of Taotie and he opened his left palm wide. As if it was a black hole, it grabbed onto the bones before Shi Tianhao used his right hand to crush them.
The crushed bones then converted into a skeleton once again, which started roaring furiously. But before the skeleton was able to move, Shi Tianhao had already smashed it towards the ground and was going to step on it!
“Crack!” The skeleton was completely crushed by Shi Tianhao this time.
At the same time, Shi Tianhao had already grabbed the jade-green skeletal head with one of his hand. As the Vicious Acalanatha Fire burned, the light projection of King Taishan was destroyed.
Under the look of despair of King Taishan, Shi Tianhao shouted, “Hong (Vast)!”
A brutal force was unleashed instantly, causing the jade-green skeletal head to be completely crushed!
The last scene that King Taishan saw was that of Shi Tianhao taking away his Hexagonal White Bone Pagoda and Hunyuan Bone Armor. After that Shi Tianhao did not even look back and left with the Kun Peng Pavilion.
If he could summon the Spell of Death Substitution again, he could survive once more. But he had no more strength to do so anymore.
And because Shi Tianhao knew that, he did not even look back and just left.
Shi Tianhao was sure that King Taishan was dead this time!
To Shi Tianhao right now, there seemed to be a fire burning in his heart right now. He wanted to rush back to Mount Yujing quickly!
As he fought King Taishan, Shi Tianhao tapped on the miraculous strength of the Original Holy Light to overcome his injuries. But right now, he was still a little out of sorts. His powers were almost depleted.
As he conjured his energy to destroy King Taishan’s jade-green skeletal head, he had some remaining to escape.
He sat in the Kun Peng Pavilion, trying to escape the Void Battleground. At the same time, he retrieved a Cloud Forest Tree branch that he had been cultivating for some time and which was halfway used. Shi Tianhao absorbed the essence within and restored his depleted energy.
After a brief moment, Shi Tianhao focused his mind and the Kun Peng Pavilion shook. A tremendous force jerked and a small and weird crack opened in the barrier of the boundary of the Void Battleground.
Shi Tianhao commanded the Kun Peng Pavilion to burst out, but this passageway out of the Void Battleground started to distort suddenly!
The passageway out of the Void Battleground was already very unstable. Right now, it was even threatening to close up.
What was even scarier was that Shi Tianhao was already in the middle of the passageway. If it closed up suddenly, he would be stuck in the middle. The powers of the boundary of the Void Battleground were even stronger than that of King Taishan!
“I know that you are rushing back to the Divine Lands, thus I’ve been waiting for you here!” In void space, a cultivator in black looked at this scene and laughed maniacally. But before his smile could widen, the Kun Peng Pavilion resonated with a voice suddenly, “Uni-!”
The miraculous force stabilized the passageway. However, in the next instant, the brutal, distortion power of the boundary of the Void Battleground released itself from the restraints of Shi Tianhao’s “Uni” word. But in this instant, the Kun Peng Pavilion surged with a streak of bright holy light.
As the holy light shone, the passageway stabilized completely and regained normalcy.
It was the Original Holy Light!
The cultivator in black was shocked and wanted to escape. But he heard another voice from the pavilion, “-Verse!”
The reaction of the cultivator in black stalled. As he revealed his Immortal Soul, he saw a streak of extremely majestic rainbow flashing across void space and came slashing towards him!
Final Holy Light!
As he left the perished cultivator behind, Shi Tianhao continued to command the Kun Peng Pavilion to pass through the passageway!
The scenery in front of him turned much more beautiful and familiar. It was the Greater World, Divine Lands and Mount Kunlun.
Shi Tianhao sat inside the Kun Peng Pavilion and flew in the direction of the Cloud Mirror City.
As he reached halfway, Shi Tianhao turned his head suddenly and his eyes started to flash with a cold radiance.
“Is this ever going to stop?”
The Heavens and Earth shook and layers and layers of space overlapped one another. As they overlapped, they trapped Shi Tianhao within.
Mount Shu’s Shaoze Sword!
The quickest vanishing spell in the Divine Lands infused with the brilliance of time and space at the same time.
A middle-aged man walked out of void space. He seemed very refined and wore a smile on his face. But no one dared to underestimate him. He was standing over there, but his position could not be confirmed.
It was as if he was standing on many different layers in space, representing countless possibilities.
He was the Shaoze Swordmaster. He held a long sword in a reverse manner, but only the hilt of it could be seen. The sword radiance of the sword could be subtly seen in space.
The Shaoze Sword, one of the Mount Shu Six Passages of Sword.
He looked at Shi Tianhao and was a little stunned, “Elder Jie left so suddenly and seemed to have something he couldn’t tell me when he asked me to wait here. Who knew that I was waiting for Shi Tianhao. Forget it, since we’ve decided to fight the Celestial Sect of Wonders, it doesn’t matter where we do it.”
The Shaoze Swordmaster wanted to speak, but he noticed that Shi Tianhao remained expressionless. As Shi Tianhao stepped into void space, he had already come in front of him!
He was so fast that it was only slightly slower than his Shaoze Sword!
The Shaoze Swordmaster raised his brows, “You are the fastest among Lin Feng’s disciples. But you are still not comparable to my Shaoze Sword!”
In an instant, he revealed the image of an assassin who was 20 foot tall and which wore an ancient costume. The long sword in his hand converted into a cold radiance.
The Shaoze Swordmaster had revealed his virtual entity. As his figure flashed, his sword mind filled the entire place. It was as if he had spawned hundreds of his own figure, but they were not his avatars. Rather, he summoned his art of swordplay its fullest and his Immortal Soul was in several layers of space at once.
As the cold radiance flashed, it converted into stars that shone. In that instant, these stars transcended space and attacked Shi Tianhao.
The powers of the Shaoze Sword infused with the sword mind of the Shaoze Swordmaster, causing his speed to increase another level. Right now, as the Shaoze Swordmaster unleashed the Shaoze Sword, his stature was extremely frightening.
It was as if everywhere around Shi Tianhao in void space surged with the same sword radiance.
This sword generated a different kind of effect. The light and fast Shaoze Sword exuded a hint of simplicity, developing an extremely dense sword mind that caused the space and time around Shi Tianhao to be frozen!
As space was sealed, there was no place for Shi Tianhao to escape.
As time was stopped, Shi Tianhao could harbor no thoughts.
The thing about the Shaoze Sword was that it was extremely fast. Before the opponent could even react, he would have already been struck!
Although Shi Tianhao was fast, he seemed like a snail in front of the Shaoze Swordmaster.
Countless streaks of sword radiance attacked Shi Tianhao at the same time. None of them was an illusory move. They were all real and came from a magic treasure in the metaplasia realm that the Shaoze Swordmaster possessed. This magic treasure allowed the sword radiances to transcend boundless space and time to become real sword radiances.
The Kun Peng Pavilion was therefore attacked by countless sword radiances at one shot. Even while it converted into black and engaged the most impenetrable of defenses, it was still struck heavily. A hole was eventually created and the Kun Peng Pavilion was heavily hurt.
Right now, Shi Tianhao was also struck by hundreds of sword radiances.
But the Shaoze Swordmaster quickly realized that something was not right. Although Shi Tianhao’s robe was full of holes, there were only hundreds of red spots on the flesh underneath the robe. There was no sign of any wounds!
Shi Tianhao spat out a breath of air and laughed at the Shaoze Swordmaster. But in the Shaoze Swordmaster’s eyes, it was as if a ferocious beast had opened its mouth wide and was ready to attack.
In the next moment, Shi Tianhao unleashed a brutal fist towards the Shaoze Swordmaster!
Out of the Mount Shu Six Passages of Sword, Shi Tianhao was most unbothered by the Shaoze Sword, as it was the weakest in pure offensive strength, even though it was the quickest and its attack could reach the longest range.
The Shaoze Swordmaster quickly retreated. He was well aware of the limitations of his own sword. He had even met such a similar situation before.
But as long as his speed was above Shi Tianhao, even if he could not overcome Shi Tianhao’s tough flesh, Shi Tianhao could only dream of attacking him.
He was the only one who could attack. Shi Tianhao could only dream of retaliating.
If a hundred attacks could not work, then let there be thousands and millions of attacks.
But as Shi Tianhao unleashed his fist, he shouted something at the same time.
The last word of the Xuanhuang Four-Word Mantra, “Huang (Barren)”.
An extremely ancient and desolate aura spread. It was primitive yet vast. Wherever Shi Tianhao’s powers went, the Heavens and Earth became nothing. All spiritual energy was destroyed and everything returned to the barrenness of the universe right at the beginning. It was a state of chaos.
This even caused the Shaoze Sword to slow down!
The situation had reversed.
Right now, the Shaoze Swordmaster was the snail in Shi Tianhao’s eyes.
