Ancient Strengthening Technique - Chapter 1085-1086
AST 1085 Danger, Injury, Break his Teeth
Could it be that Qing Shui had come back?
The girls all looked at the Ten Thousand Poisonous Violet Sable in shock. Back then, when had Qing Shui left, he had intentionally left behind the sable and informed them that so long as he wasn't too far away from it, he would be able to sense it.
For now, the strength of the Ten Thousand Poisonous Violet Sable could be considered as average and dealing with ordinary elders from Lion King's Ridge shouldn't be a problem. Its poison was very strong and it had managed to kill a few demonic beasts previously.
At this time, it let out a sharp cry. For a demonic beast that had reached such a formidable level, its cry could penetrate the clouds. It could be transmitted for a 1000 li or even further.
The girls wanted to stop the Ten Thousand Poisonous Violet Sable. Deep down, Yu He wasn't too sure either. She was unsure if they could beat the people in front of them, but she thought to herself that if Qing Shui did manage to arrive soon, they might really stand a chance.
Yiye Jiange, on the other hand, had witnessed Qing Shui's strength before. It's just that the people in Lion King's Ridge were a bit more powerful without the Laws of Heaven and Earth, she wasn't really confident in herself either.
"Young master, this is a formation to trap enemies, there might also be killing formations within it. If you really wanted to destroy this formation, you will have to get in from here. Furthermore, it would be the best if a formidable warrior who specializes in all eight positions of Heaven and Earth enters." Elder Xi said with her brows knitted.
"Hmph! Do they really think that they can defend themselves with a formation? Funny, we don't have to get in, we can still manage to break the formation." At this moment, another elderly man in a similar red gown spoke up.
"Elder Chi, have you thought of any ways to counter it? This time, we definitely can't let them go. You saw it yourself, Yiye Jiange and her niece are already powerful Beast Tamers. If any more powerful warriors from the new generation continue to appear someone with Heart of Seven Orifices might happen to appear. If that happens, our Lion King's Ridge will definitely be done for." Bei Tanglie looked at the elderly man with the sunken eyes earnestly.
"Young master, I have a Formation Breaking Stone in my hand. It's just that this one is of a lower grade. However, these people aren't that strong, it should be able to break their formation. This Formation Breaking Stone is able to absorb the Spiritual Qi emitted from the eye of the formation. It would immediately cripple the formation itself." Elder Chi said with a smile.
"Elder Chi, if we succeed this time, I will report this to father! I will definitely not let the usage of this Formation Breaking Stone be for naught!" Bei Tanglie said seriously looking at the old man.
"It's alright young master, I will start right away. You guys get ready. The time that the Formation Breaking Stone stays in effect isn't that long. As such, we have to force the girls out of the formation within a short period of time. You can also try to destroy the eye of the formation." As soon as Elder Chi finished speaking, he took out the Formation Breaking Stone.
The Formation Breaking Stone was a black stone. It was about a foot in size and it was oval in shape. On top of it flowed a strange energy, or rather, a kind of devilish entity. A lot of people would feel uncomfortable with this kind of strength since it felt a bit gloomy.
"Oh no, they're about to break the formation!" Yu Ruyan said to the girls who were similarly looking outside.
"Everyone get ready, as soon as the formation loses its effect, we should focus on one direction and run. Don't turn back, as soon as you get the chance to run, run! I will watch your back." Yiye Jiange said calmly.
"I will look after you guys too!" Luan Luan said with a smile.
"Sister Jiange, who do you think I am? Today, we either leave together or stay here together." Wenren Wushuang shook her head and said in an upset tone.
"Let Luan Luan leave, we will stay behind. Whoever gets the chance to run, run. Luan Luan, you leave, we can still succeed in holding them back." Hai Dongqing said at this moment.
"I'm not leaving, don't any of you dare to make me go. What face do I have left to meet daddy? I would rather die than let you guys risk your life here. I will not leave." Luan Luan made her choice clear.
Judging by the situation, it was clear that no one would leave. The girls came to an agreement and charged backwards together. As for whether they could successfully make their way out, it would all be decided by fate.
Back when they're in the Five Continents, because of the Laws of Heaven and Earth, Yu He was still considered strong, just like the strong warriors opposite with 300,000 stars of strength, they wouldn't be able to gain any advantages while battling against Yu He. When they're here, however, Yu He couldn't even manage to hold them back.
Elder Chi tossed the Formation Breaking Stone in his hand. It immediately arrived above the Nine Palace Eight Trigram Formation. In an instant, it was as if the spiritual energy across the Heaven and the Earth got split apart. A Qi flow that was visible to the naked eyes came to a stop on the Formation Breaking Stone.
Everything across Heaven and Earth reinforced and counteracted against one another. It was just that there were certain things that were difficult to counteract and the time it stayed in effect would similarly be really short. On top of that, it was also really hard to search for those things. For example, although the Formation Breaking Stone was low grade, it was still quite a rare substance.
Suddenly, the halo of the formation fluctuated.
The halo from the formation dispersed after rippling for quite a distance, revealing the women and demonic beasts within the formation.
Both the demonic beasts and the warriors charged towards the broken formation together. There were as many as 100 huge demonic beasts, even though it wasn't that so numerous that it was able to cover the mountains and plains, it was still a magnificent sight. The roar of the beasts could shake the sky. In between, there were even tremendous energy blasts.
Both the girls and the demonic beasts also didn't back down and charged towards them. However, they didn't charge towards them head to head as there was a huge gap in their strength. Both the Seven-headed Crystal Beast and the Six-Headed Windfire Wolf worked together to open up a path for them. They were like a sharp sword and the demonic beasts who got attacked by the Seven-headed Crystal Beast were all instantly killed.
"Eight Directional Sky Net Formation!"
As the Lion King's Ridge saw this, another eight of their members immediately appeared to surround them. But now, the formation was just about to activate. The girls each tossed out a talisman at the same time.
Heart Toxin Talisman!
The Heart Toxin Talisman was unavoidable and it attacked the heart directly. Hence, it was related to both the user's and the victim's spiritual energy. This was also why the girls were scared that it might not take effect. They immediately threw out a few Heart Toxin Talismans.
Two of the enemies present sunk into madness.
"Surround them, don't give them any openings!"
The girls, as well as Fattie, left the formation. Fattie had a huge rod. Its entire body was flashing with a faint golden light. He was using it to attack the demonic beasts in the surrounding like a mad demon.
There were almost fifty people against them and each of them were powerful warriors. The attacks from the girls were strong, yet they only lasted for a short while. Very quickly, each of them were already occupied by their own enemies and they slowly got separated from each other. The Ten Thousand Poisonous Violet Sable constantly shuttled around as it let out ear-piercing cries as if it wanted to rip the sky itself.
Again and again, it let out loud cries. It was as if each of its cries could push forth the previous cries, causing it to be transmitted even further away. It was mournful and sharp.
The Heart Toxin Talisman wasn't invincible. It could already be considered really powerful to be able to destroy two of the men who were setting up formations. But very quickly, other people took their places. The girls were also quite occupied. If it hadn't been because of their mystical steps, they would very likely have been defeated.
Fattie got blown away by an elderly man. But because he had a strong physique, he rubbed off the bloodstain at the corner of his mouth and stood back up once again. He again let out the Vajra Frenzied Devilish Rod Technique.
A depressing groan was heard.
Wenren Wu-shuang didn't manage to dodge in time and her arm was slashed by the two elderly men. Fresh blood started streaming down her hand.
The Earth Devouring Mice suddenly appeared and pushed back the two elderly men.
Luan Luan herself already possessed quite a decent amount of demonic beasts. She could already be considered to have some small achievements. Furthermore, it was currently at a state when it was growing quite quickly. Unfortunately, the reason she was forced into such a difficult situation was not only because she suddenly ran into so many formidable warriors at once but because the place where she met them was the Ancient Ruins.
Bei Tanglie slowly approached Yiye Jiange. At this moment, Yiye Jiange was already surrounded by three elderly men. Bei Tanglie, on the other hand, was patiently moving towards her like a leopard hunting its prey.
Yiye Jiange, who was surrounded by three elderly men, already had her hands occupied. Her calm and extraordinary eyes made Bei Tanglie feel absent-minded. Many years ago, it was precisely those eyes that had attracted him. Many years after, he still didn't dare to look directly into her eyes.
"You are mine! My woman can never run away from me!"
Yiye Jiange was once again forced to a corner. The direction in which she was blown to was precisely Beitang Lie's position. Bei Tanglie stood still at the spot and didn't move, there was even a trace of a proud look on his face.
Right at the moment that Yiye Jiange was blown to about three meters from Beitang Lie, she suddenly turned around with the Violet Jade Sword in her hand.
Nine Palace Steps!
Suddenly, her sword was aimed right towards Beitang Lie's chest.
It managed to pierce through his heart. However, the sharp and clear noise produced from the collision caused Yiye Jiange to feel insecure. At this moment, Bei Tanglie extended his hand and grabbed onto the Violet Jade Sword. There was a thin glove on his hand.
"Haha, you're too weak."
Yiye Jiange swung her other hand and swiftly shot out a Willow Knife. It flew towards Beitang Lie's left eye at a fast speed.
Bei Tanglie instinctively dodged it. However, it still left a wound on his face. In an instant, half of his face was dyed red.
"F*king bitch! You are challenging death itself!"
He pushed forward with the hand which he was using to grab the Violet Jade Sword and thrust the sword handle towards Yiye Jiange's chest. He used so much force that it immediately pushed her back and caused her to spit out fresh blood in mid-air.
"You are dead!"
Di Qing pulled Luan Luan.
Suddenly, a fluctuation could be felt in the air. A human figure appeared in the distance. However, this human figure once quickly flashed at lightning speed and appeared in mid-air. The figure extended its hand and grabbed Yiye Jiange who was dropping down from the sky.
The person who came was precisely Qing Shui. He came with his Nine Continents Steps after hearing the cries let out by the Ten Thousand Poisonous Violet Sable. Nine Continents Step could be used four times every day. Every time it was used, it couldn't be used for more than 400,000 li. Even if a person only used it to travel a li, it was still considered as using it once.
Coincidentally, the instant he appeared happened to be the instant that Yiye Jiange got blown away. As Qing Shui looked at the veil that was dyed red with a blood stain and the indifferent eyes, Qing Shui felt an excruciating pain in his heart.
Sacred Jade divine Stone Ring!
In an instant, he appeared in the sky and grabbed Yiye Jiange. His hands were trembling. Only now did he recognize the enemies as people from Lion King's Ridge.
As for the three old men who were originally only surrounding Yiye Jiange, they had now turned and surrounded both Qing Shui and Yiye Jiange instead.
Nine Continents Mountain!
In an instant, a one hundred meters huge mountain appeared in front of Qing Shui!
Qing Shui immediately spiritually confined the three old men from below.
The people who were originally still moving were now all frozen in shock. All of this had happened too quickly, it was to the extent that a few of them only began to notice that there was one more person in the sky now.
The Nine Continents Mountain emerged once again. On the other hand, there was a bottomless pit on the ground. The smash from before caused the entire earth to tremble. Qing Shui was extremely furious. With Yiye Jiange in his hands, he didn't want her to feel any of the quakes. As such, he used the most powerful Nine Continents Mountain right away.
"Daddy, kill these inhuman beasts. Not only has that man hurt mommy, he even scolded her." Luan Luan screamed loudly.
Deep down, she had always seen Qing Shui as an unbeatable god. As long as her daddy was here, there's nothing that couldn't be solved. Every father was their daughter's heroes.
Qing Shui's eyes turned cold.
Buddha's True Eyes!
Qing Shui swiftly flicked his right hand and instantly shot out a Coldsteel Bead the size of an egg.
It was directed precisely towards Bei Tanglie who was frozen in shock.
Fresh blood could be seen spurting out of the man's mouth along with a few whimpering noises.
As a result, all of his teeth were broken. A few Coldsteel Beads had also managed to make its way into his throat.
AST 1086 –Lion King’s Li Fire Formation, Killing with Great Power
Bei Tanglie's eyes popped out and he took great effort to swallowed down the Coldsteel Bead which was the size of an egg. His eyes were bloodshot and filled with tears.
Qing Shui killed three people in the time he took to swing his hand. One of them wasn't even able to say a single word. If not for the fact that Bei Tanglie was considered quite powerful, he wouldn't be able to withstand this Coldsteel Bead. Of course, Qing Shui had intentionally left him alive. It was because Qing Shui judged from his clothes and skills that this man should be an important character in Lion King's Ridge.
However, just swallowing a Coldsteel Bead was sufficient to make him feel awful for a while. Moreover, the guy basically ended up losing every single one of his teeth. When Qing Shui saw that Yiye Jiange was hurt, he had wanted to kill this guy immediately. However, Qing Shui now felt that it would be going too easy on him to let him die.
This sudden change caused everyone to stop. However, a few demonic beasts once again pounced towards Qing Shui!
With a soft bellow, the Nine Continents Mountain in the air pushed forth and collided against the huge demonic beasts.
This was what it meant to be easily destroyed!
Tremendous and terrifying roars rang out as the demonic beasts collided with the Nine Continents Mountain, many of them turning into a pile of ground meat.
In the time it took for Qing Shui to snap his fingers, over ten demonic beasts were blasted off. Qing Shui landed next to Yiye Jiange. He looked at her arm which had been dyed red by blood and asked, "Who did that?"
"Qing Shui!" Yiye Jiange looked at Qing Shui and smiled, her eyes filled with tears. It was impossible to know if these tears were of sadness or of joy. It could be half of each!
"Alright, I won't ask who did it. I won't let a single one of them leave this place alive." Qing Shui said in a soft to the people on the other side but there was powerful killing intent in his voice.
Yiye Jiange smiled and looked at Qing Shui. She had never felt so calm in his arms before. Earlier, when she saw him killing in fury, she felt very warm inside. When she felt the most desperate, this person had appeared…
"Little Fattie, are you alright?" Qing Shui looked at Little Fattie who also seemed a little dejected.
"Brother Qing Shui, I'm fine. Sorry." Little Fattie was also despondent to see Yiye Jiange get hurt. He had given his word to Qing Shui but now…
"Little Fattie, I don't blame you. I hadn't expected to encounter them either." Qing Shui smiled and interrupted Little Fattie who was blaming himself.
"Sister Yu, Sister Qing, Sister Yan…" Qing Shui greeted them.
Yiye Jiange pushed both her hands against Qing Shui's chest and said, "I'm fine now. You can put me down."
Qing Shui had actually been healing her injuries all along. He gradually put her down and took her hands. It was only after seeing that her arm injury wasn't very serious that he felt relieved.
“Qing Shui, that Bei Tanglie is Lion King’s Ridge’s young lord.”
Qing Shui looked at that middle-aged man dressed in golden-colored clothes. That man still seemed to be in agony. Right now, that man was being surrounded by many others and his expression was painful and twisted. Many of the others were looking at Qing Shui in astonishment. To them, Qing Shui was a demon.
In the Five Continents, they held tremendous power. With their abilities, other than Northern Sacred Lu Continent, they were invincible in any other places within the Five Continents. This time around, they had come to the Ancient Ruins, hoping to try out their luck. As long as they encountered good things, it wouldn’t matter even if it belonged to someone else. As long as they were still within the Ancient Ruins, they would be able to snatch the items openly. This has always been a world where it was survival of the fittest.
However, to think that this young man who had suddenly appeared could do this to them and to even be able to kill them instantly in this Ancient Ruins…How could they not be afraid?
Qing Shui gradually walked over to the opposite side. Bei Tanglie finally felt a little bit better, but he was now looking at Qing Shui, feeling horrified. He knew that there was no way that things could end in their favor.
“Set up the formation!”
Lion King’s Li Fire Formation!
Everyone quickly took action, each of them holding a formation flag which was three feet long. These flags had the drawing of a fire lion on it. They surrounded Bei Tanglie and three old men who were wearing fiery red clothes.
Qing Shui walked until he was about 50 meters away from them before he came to a stop. There were demonic beasts on each of the opponents’side while the Nine Continents Mountain was on top of Qing Shui.
“Who are you? Why are you getting involved with matters concerning our Lion King’s Ridge?”
When Bei Tanglie spoke, he was in agony. He no longer had any teeth and air was flowing out as he spoke. However, even at this point, he still hoped to settle the matter peacefully.
“Who am I? Why am I getting involved with matters involving Lion King’s Ridge? You’ve injured my woman. Don’t you think that’s enough reason for me to tear you into pieces?”Qing Shui said, wearing a false smile.
“Yiye Jiange is your woman?”Bei Tanglie held back the pain he felt while speaking and when he looked at Qing Shui, it was unclear whether his expression was that of astonishment or fury…
“Is there a need to doubt this? Since you’ve injured my woman, I shall give you two options.”Qing Shui spoke once again. After all, it was not a bad idea to spite him before he was to die.
“What are the options?”
Frightened by that small mountain above Qing Shui, Bei Tanglie knew that things wouldn’t end so simply. However, he had to force himself to ask. As long as he could survive this episode, there would be plenty of ways for him to take revenge after they’ve left the Ancient Ruins.
“You can take your own life or I can do it for you.”Qing Shui looked straight at Bei Tanglie who was in a pitiful state.
“I’ve also gotten injured today and you’ve killed a number of our people from Lion King’s Ridge. If enmity is not settled amicably there is no end to it. Why don’t we both take a step back and I’ll make it up for you through other means?”Despite never having been on the losing end before, Bei Tanglie had no choice but to keep his temper in check.
“You guys had shamelessly bullied a few ladies with your numbers and yet you still dare to say something like this. If you’re a man, you should just step forward and don’t continue hiding behind them.”Qing Shui let out a light bellow and waved his hand, sending his Nine Continents Mountain to attack.
The huge Nine Continents Mountain tore through the air. The twisted air could be seen by the naked eye. The currents on both sides of the Nine Continents Mountain gushed forth as it smashed toward those large demonic beasts.
Sand flew about and the air was filled with the smell of smoke. There were also the terrified cries from their demonic beasts.
Since he had taken action, Qing Shui didn’t plan on stopping. The Nine Continents Mountain smashed out with a violent strength and would kill two huge demonic beasts each time.
In the blink of an eye, tens of demonic beasts disappeared under Qing Shui’s Nine Continents Mountain. The prowess of the Nine Continents Mountain made Qing Shui feel exhilarated. There was an indescribable sense of enjoyment to be able to go through such violent massacre.
Suddenly, a roar rang out. It was only that Qing Shui looked towards his opponents’formation. The formation had been activated and the faint red colored glow from the formation fluctuated with a powerful aura. The glow from this formation was in the shape of a huge fire lion which was about 100 meters in size. With a low howl, all the air before it went through major explosions.
“Mmm, this formation isn’t bad.”
Qing Shui looked at this huge lion before him. There weren’t any world’s regulations in the Ancient Ruins like there were in the Five Continents. To think that it had the strength of 1.5 million stars.
This formation was very practical. To think that it could connect so many people. As expected of the strongest formation of the Lion King’s Ridge. This was the Li Fire formation in the Lion King’s Formation. It was said that the Lion King’s Ridge still had other formations. This particular formation was good when multiple people worked together and as long as they could cooperate well, there were no limits to the number of people who could be included. However, the more people, the more energy required, and the stronger the prowess.
The formation’s prowess was related to the strength of those people. Although Qing Shui had killed a few of them earlier, there were still over 40 of them. Each of the remaining ones had a strength of 100,000 stars, with a few who were even at 300,000 stars. Right now, this formation could unleash a prowess of 1.5 million stars and was definitely terrifying.
It could only be said that the people from the Lion King’s Ridge were very unlucky or that Qing Shui was very lucky. If it wasn’t because he had gotten his hands on a Sacred Spirit Grade treasure, he would be helpless in this situation.
The Lion King’s Li Fire Formation was the final trump card for the people from the Lion King’s Ridge. This was why earlier if they could come to an agreement, they wouldn’t want to take the risk. The Nine Continents Mountain from earlier had already terrified them and if this final trump of theirs didn’t work, what awaited them would only be death.
And right now, they had no other choice but to fight to a bitter death.
The huge red lion opened its mouth and the surroundings were engulfed by a sea of flames.
The most powerful fire in the five elements. This fire was similar to the flames that the Fire Bird used to spew out.
A stream of pure red-colored flames appeared, seemingly covered with something that resembled sizzling electricity.
Demonic Beast Armor Manifestation!
With a wave of his hand, a Primordial Flame Ball flew out toward that electrifying fire!
The Primordial Flame Ball was destroyed and the electrifying fire once again attacked towards Qing Shui.
Nine Continents Mountain!
The Nine Continents Mountain could be used for both attack and defense. This was why Qing Shui let it block the middle. When the electrifying fire landed on the Nine Continents Mountain, a sizzling sound rang out. However, there was no damage done to the Nine Continents Mountain at all.
Qing Shui wore a faint smile. This Nine Continents Mountain was really powerful. To think that it could even fend off such a powerful attack. Moreover, the Nine Continents Mountain was too heavy. After receiving such a powerful attack, not only did it not receive any damages, it didn’t even move an inch.
Qing Shui slapped his hand on the Nine Continents Mountain and it flew toward the huge 'fire lion'.
Its speed was extraordinarily fast and in an instant, the two collided!
The huge lion was sent flying. When the Nine Continents Mountain attacked, it would have the pushing back impact that the Shield Attack had. Moreover, the Nine Continents Mountain’s attack was slightly more powerful than the huge lion’s prowess. Two times that of Qing Shui’s speed was already quite terrifying.
Next, the Nine Continents Mountain continued to smashed against the huge lion again and again. Putting aside the fact that this 'lion' was not as strong as Qing Shui, even if it was slightly more powerful than Qing Shui, it wouldn’t be able to take such an attack. Each attack reduced the endurance prowess of both sides and in terms of endurance, those who would dare to compete with Qing Shui would die a terrible death.
Consecutive explosive sounds rang out. It was like the Lion King’s Li Fire Formation set up by the Lion King’s Li Fire Formation was blocked by a sandbag. All the powerful flame attacks it had released were blocked by the Nine Continents Mountain and each smash from the Nine Continents Mountain would reduce quite a lot of their endurance. Although the prowess of such a formation was very great, so was the depletion. Its fatal flaw was that it could not last long.
In less than 15 minutes, the fiery red glow started to flicker. After all, during this period of time, the Nine Continents Mountain had collided against the Lion King’s Li Fire Formation countless times from different directions. It was already quite good that they could hang on for so long.
Finally, the Lion King’s Li Fire Formation couldn’t hold on anymore and just scattered. The Nine Continents Mountain smashed toward them and even if the people from the Lion King’s Ridge were quick to dodge, half of them were sent flying from the collision, turning into blood-colored lumps before disappearing into the air.
Qing Shui looked at the people from Lion King’s Ridge. They were very pale and had blood trickling down from the corner of their lips. They weren’t wearing any expressions at all!
The Nine Continents Mountain smashed down once again. This time around, its target was the horrified Bei Tanglie.
