Ancient Strengthening Technique - Chapter 1743
AST 1743 - Sun Shooting Bow, Immortal Vanquishing Arrow
Right now, Qing Shui was just like a sharp sword . He could very quickly open up a breach no matter where he went . His target this time was the remaining strong elderly man .
Qing Shui let the Dragon Slaying Beast act as a support . Now, the opponents had already been made aware of how terrifying a demonic beast the Dragon Slaying Beast could be . Hence, they would try to keep an eye on it in hope that they could hit it away with one blow . This was because prior to this, they had tried various methods and yet were still unable to kill off the beast .
However, this time, the elderly man made a mistake . The real threat was Qing Shui . Furthermore, it was one of his Sure-Kill strikes . All along, Qing Shui had felt reluctant to use it . After all, he could only use it once everyday . The old man from before was very unlucky . As soon as he came up, he immediately became dizzy due to the Mighty Elephant Stomp, causing him to be instantly killed by the Dragon Slaying Beast .
Hence, for now, the only thing which Qing Shui would need to do was to kill the last remaining old man and the victor for the day would have been decided . That was why he unleashed the Sure-kill strike which he was most used to .
An attack six times more powerful than his offensive prowess;that would make it more than two hundred and fifty thousand Dao Force . It was absolutely not something which the old man in front of him could withstand . Upon seeing the fearsome Golden Battle Halberd approaching him, the old man's mind went blank .
The attack immediately caused the surroundings to be in ruins . A huge crack could be seen all over the place . Not only was the old man dead, even the Ocean Demon who came to support the old man from before was sucked into a black hole .
A total of about ten Ocean Demons came, but now, four had died . Qing Shui contributed in killing three of them whereas Shui Yunfeng slaughtered the other one . Just before, even Shui Yunfeng thought he was left with no path of retreat . As things developed up to this point, he could be considered to already be crossing a river with Qing Shui on the same boat .
(Cross a river on the same boat: An idiom which means that two people are sharing common interests and working together towards the same goal . )
After killing the old man, Qing Shui let out a sigh of relief . Nevertheless, the battle was far from over . Furthermore, the thing which Qing Shui worried most had finally happened .
The remaining seven Ocean Demons suddenly lined up into a formation . Simultaneously, a sweet and piteous melody also came through .
The Song of Ocean Demons!
Qing Shui felt an increase in the opponent's aura and strength . His side, on the other hand, experienced a decrease in their combat prowess . As soon as Qing Shui felt the reduction in strength, he immediately operated his formidable Nature Energy and Emperor's Qi to counteract against such power .
Though he might be fine, the people around him had more or less been affected by it . This wasn't Qing Shui's main concern . The main problem was that the opponent's strength has increased by quite a huge chunk .
Initially, they were supposed to have already hold the advantage of the battle . But now, due to the effect brought upon by the opponent's formation, the situation of the battle hds slightly changed .
Qing Shui immediately summoned the Hell Nightmare Beast to defend against the Ocean Demon's attacks . However, right at this moment, the Guardian Beast began charging towards them . Prior to this, the Guardian Beast was being hindered by the Hell Nightmare Beast . As soon as it was freed now, it right away targeted the things which went into its sight with its enraged flame .
The position where Qing Shui summoned the Hell Nightmare Beast coincidentally happened to be the position where the Guardian Beast would feel the the Ocean Demons .
The enormous Guardian Beast immediately charged its way towards the Ocean Demons . Right now, the Ocean Demons had managed to set up their formations and their strength was also increasing gradually . They seemed to be preparing for something . Unfortunately, the Guardian Beast had begun charging towards them just as they were doing all of this .
Yan Ziyun was already really angry to begin with, but at the moment he saw the things going on right in front of him, he got even more enraged . The Guardian Beast joined in just as he was finally ready to cripple Shui Zhongyue .
The rage of Ocean Demons, Enraged Slash!
A slash resembling an enormous half-moon was slowly formed . It soon charged its way towards the Guardian Beast . It was no longer possible for him to slash Shui Zhongyue as he was already being guarded by the Hell Nightmare Beast . From the battle before, he could already tell that the Hell Nightmare Beast was impenetrable . Nevertheless, he didn't find it to be a threatening presence .
The loud and sharp noise sounded just like an impenetrable sharp sword as it slashed the Guardian Beast .
The powerful strike almost slashed the Guardian Beast in half . Each side was almost proportional to each other . Qing Shui and his group all started sweating when they saw that slash . If the slash had been directed towards them, the consequences would have been unbearable .
This strike didn't immediately cripple the Guardian Beast, but its strength was still greatly reduced . In just a while, a significant amount of the beast's Spiritual Sense had been removed . Hence, the Guardian Beast was no longer able to threaten the Ocean Demons with its attacks .
Following on, the Ocean Demons once again made their move and together crippled the Guardian Beast . After that, they once again had their sights set on Qing Shui and the others .
Right now, Qing Shui had been left with no room to advance or to retreat . The opposing formations were also very formidable . Though he might not know what formation what formation they had used, he was aware that it was equipped with both offensive and defensive purposes . Its drawback was it required significant consumption . This was quite a fatal weakness .
Qing Shui didn't dare to move recklessly . He knew that the opponents would definitely not stop for a long time . If the battle was dragged on, it would only be bad to them .
He relied on the Hell Nightmare Beast that was in front to form a decent barrier . Hence, for a moment, the opponents would still not be able to do anything to him .
But right at this moment, Yan Ziyun took out a bow .
It was a red bow of decent size . On top of it burnt threads of transparent flame .
Qing Shui and the others were in shock .
Sun Shooting Bow!
To think that it would be the Sun Shooting Bow . It was a legendary bow . Legend had it that it could shoot down even the sun in the sky . Of course, it actually didn't possess that much strength . Despite that, it was still an actual divine Weapon .
’’You guys are indeed in luck . To think that you would push me to the point that I need to unleash my Sun Shooting Bow . You guys can finally die in peace now . ’’ Yan Ziyun said calmly . As he swung his hand, an arrow appeared .
Immortal Vanquishing Arrow!
’’I only had three Immortal Vanquishing Arrows . All along, I have been very reluctant to use them . I used two in the past, leaving this one as my last one . Brat, you are really lucky to be able to test it . ’’
While speaking, Yan Ziyun slowly pulled the bow and reloaded the arrow in place .
The Sun Shooting Bow was shining with bright red light . It immediately dyed the heaven and earth all around it in red . The Origin Qi across the heaven and earth was also violently gathering around the Sun Shooting Bow . Very quickly, all around the Sun Shooting Bow, an enormous Bow, an enormous hollow image resembling the bow itself appeared .
Qing Shui's expression changed . His heart started beating faster and faster . He slowly walked to the front . He was aware that he must block this arrow . There was no other way to do it as he knew that it couldn't be avoided .
The Sunset Palace Mistress grabbed Qing Shui .
Muyun Qingge also looked at Qing Shui with a complex look .
’’I'll be fine! Don't worry!’’ Qing Shui once again moved forward .
’’I will take this down!’’ Shui Yunfeng clenched his teeth and walked out without any hesitation . He now stood right in front of Qing Shui and co .
’’Elder brother, his target was me . Other than me, no one will be able to block it . Come back . I have come up with a strategy to block it . I won't joke around with my own life . ’’ Qing Shui stopped Shui Yunfeng .
Right at this moment, Yan Ziyun revealed a merciless smile on his face . He aimed his bow at Qing Shui and at the moment when he let loose with his hands, the Immortal Vanquishing Sword shot towards Qing Shui with dazzling light .
The arrow might not look very fast, but it somehow could make people feel that it was travelling at a fast speed . The trajectory of the Immortal Vanquishing Arrow could clearly be seen . With a flash, Qing Shui appeared right in front of it .
He operated his consciousness!
Nine Continents Mountain!
Qing Shui's Nine Continents Mountain was also a Magic Treasure . Hence, he still had some confidence in it . The Nine Continents Mountain greeted the dazzling Immortal Vanquishing Arrow with fearsome force .
After a loud and clear noise, Qing Shui's heart tightened . The Nine Continents Mountain immediately flew backwards like a meteorite . The Immortal Vanquishing Arrow, on the other hand, continued flying towards him just like how it was from the beginning, with exactly the same force . At this moment, Qing Shui could see the confidence within Yan Ziyun's eyes .
