Xiang Shaoyun’s clone was incredibly strong. With the clone attacking at full strength, the whitebone snake was completely helpless and was ultimately sliced into seven pieces. The moment the snake was killed, its crown pulsed with a certain power.
A powerful evil spirit flew out and warned with a hoa.r.s.e voice, “For disturbing my master’s sleep, all of you shall die.”
This particular evil spirit was actually a.s.suming a human form, and it was obviously a high-level evil spirit. Xiang Shaoyun set all five of his ghostrunes on the evil spirit unhesitatingly. By devouring it, the ghostrunes would be able to grow stronger. Gui Qi was the first to pounce on the high-level evil spirit.
“d.a.m.n it, why are these things here?” the evil spirit was frightened. It started fleeing with all its might, but it still ended up captured and devoured by Gui Qi.
“Ok. You can come with me and sweep through the battlefield together,” said Xiang Shaoyun. His clone returned to him, and he went toward the spot the whitebone snake had appeared from.
Two white flowers could be seen. They blended well with the backdrop of bones, and at one glance, they could be easily missed.
Joy covered his face as he exclaimed, “Lifebone flower!”
The lifebone flower was a peculiar breed of flower that would grow in an area that had been corroded by the decaying aura of bones for a long time. Not only was this flower capable of regrowing bones, but it could also regrow broken limbs. Additionally, it could also reforge and cleanse one’s bones, giving one a much stronger skeleton. It was only a sovereign medicine, but it was also known as the little saint medicine.
Its nickname originated in the fact the flower functioned as one of the best catalysts for breaking through into the Heaven Battling Realm. The flower could accelerate the speed in which one’s saintly bones were formed—a necessary process in forming a saintly body.
Xiang Shaoyun was quite surprised to encounter such a treasure so soon after entering the secret s.p.a.ce. Just as he was about to pluck the two flowers, alarm bells practically rang at his back. He hurriedly moved aside to avoid an incoming attack coming from behind.
A dreadful arrow landed like a meteor right in front of Xiang Shaoyun, blasting a ma.s.sive crater in the ground. At the same time, a phantom-like figure charged over and aimed for the lifebone flowers. Xiang Shaoyun was infuriated. Someone was actually trying to steal from him. That person must be tired of living.
“Die!” When Xiang Shaoyun saw that the newcomer was a stranger, he attacked unhesitatingly. His battle intent and fist intent surged as fist energy flew forward like a raging dragon.
The young man aiming for the lifebone flower felt tremendous pressure from the incoming attack. His pupils shrank, and he quickly s.h.i.+fted his trajectory and dodged the attack. However, Xiang Shaoyun had merely feigned. Using the Overlord’s Nine Nether Steps, he dashed over and grabbed both flowers.
He would not allow anyone to lay a finger on the flowers. After all, Duo Ji could use one of them, and he himself needed one as well. It was understandable that he wouldn’t yield them to anyone else.
The young man readied his arrow. As powerful energy gathered around it, a boundless arrow energy shot toward Xiang Shaoyun. From the speed in which he could complete an entire motion of firing an arrow, it was obvious he was an expert marksman.
The arrow flying toward Xiang Shaoyun was as powerful as the attack of a peak Emperor. It wasn’t something regular disciples could stop. The bow user was a seventh-stage Dragon Ascension Realm cultivator from the Nine Palace Academy. He was known as the Arrow Emperor and was famous for never missing a shot.
With Xiang Shaoyun having dodged his first shot, he couldn’t afford to miss his second shot. Thus, he poured all his willpower into the second shot, sending out an arrow capable of splitting mountains and rivers.
Xiang Shaoyun could sense the power behind the arrow. Even Yuan Xuefen, the bow user closest to him was slightly weaker than the Arrow Emperor.
Nevertheless, the terrific marksmans.h.i.+p was useless before absolute strength. Xiang Shaoyun didn’t bother to avoid the arrow, nor was he affected by the mental suppression his opponent was exerting. He heaved his Shark Devourer Saber and brought it down, smas.h.i.+ng apart the incoming arrow.
He then charged forward and used the Seven Overlapping Waves Slash to send three layers of overlapping waves forward. His attack was powered by a fearsome saber intent, and the attack knocked the bow from the Arrow Emperor’s hand. In fact, the Arrow Emperor himself was coughing blood after the attack.
Only then did the Arrow Emperor realize that his opponent was much trickier than he had expected. He quickly fled in panic.
Of course, Xiang Shaoyun wouldn’t allow him to leave just like that. He did not give chase, but Money was already waiting in the Arrow Emperor’s escape path. He swept his tail and smashed the Arrow Emperor onto the ground. He then spat lightning energy at the Arrow Emperor, electrocuting him to death.
Meanwhile, Xiang Shaoyun wasn’t even paying any attention to them. He was studying his surroundings, and he noticed how the secret s.p.a.ce was filled with numerous attractions—for example, the ma.s.sive palace, and the saint tree, and the s.h.i.+ning lake.
They all looked incredibly extraordinary that the disciples almost forgot they were amid a sea of bones. Xiang Shaoyun did not act as rashly as the others. He first studied his surroundings with his gift of instincts to make sure they weren’t illusions before making his move.
His target wasn’t the ma.s.sive palace, the saint tree, or the s.h.i.+ning lake. Rather, he headed toward the place with the greatest number of bones. There, something seemed to be calling him, telling him to uncover the secret of all the corpses in the secret s.p.a.ce. The sensation also felt like a primal instinct, as though whatever was there was greatly related to him.
His target looked near but was, in fact, extremely far away. As he approached, some scenes started surfacing in his brain, sinking him into confusion. He could see that the corpses here were all left behind from a terrifying war between two armies. The armies killed each other untiringly, and one warrior after another perished, leaving only their hot-bloodedness and souls on the battlefield.
Ultimately, everyone apart from one perished. The sole survivor walked atop the corpses, eventually stopping at the enemy general’s body. With a war banner in hand, he scanned the battlefield coldly. The saying that a general’s success was built atop countless corpses couldn’t be more right here.
Kill! Kill! Kill!
The atmosphere of the place seemed to have infected Xiang Shaoyun, causing him to erupt with a ruthless aura and negative emotions. He started swinging his Shark Devourer Saber incessantly as though he was fighting an army of thousands of soldiers. He would not stop fighting until the end of the world, until the last drop of blood was dry.
Abruptly, a dragon’s roar sounded, shattering the scene he was in and pulling him back to reality. After recollecting himself, Xiang Shaoyun found that Money was currently engaged in a battle with a zombie. Things weren’t looking good for him, and it seemed he was in danger of getting killed at any time.
