Chapter 156 - The Amazing Might of the Dragon Locking Ring
Gu Hai, with a flip of his hand, took out a gold ingot!
"Keep an eye on this ingot, it will be your foothold. Jump at the place this ingot disappears, and you will be able to arrive near Li Wei!" said Gu Hai.
Done speaking, he threw the ingot into the Weiqi of Death.
Long Wanqing and her two subordinates, accurately tracking its location, jumped to it in the blink of an eye. Their silhouettes flickered as they entered the weiqi world.
In the blink of an eye, three black pieces clones of the three were congealed respectively, floating above the weiqi board.
Looking at the three people jumping into the Weiqi of Death, the countless cultivators outside looked confused.
"What are they doing? They won the Weiqi of Life, why are they playing the Weiqi of Death?
"That's right! The Weiqi of Death is obviously a dead end, why is that Ascendant Hall Lord suddenly jumping in?
"Why don't they continue to play the Weiqi of Life?"...
Many cultivator's eyes were filled with confusion.
Amid these countless cultivators, there was a silhouette wearing a black and white robe standing on a huge peak. It was Wei Shengren, who had arrived here long ago.
Wei Shengren, looking at the distant weiqi board, turned silent for a good long while.
"Gu Hai's weiqi skills!? Elder Guanqi, it seems he is your successor, but unfortunately, he isn't that enthusiastic about your inheritance! Ha!" Wei Shengren let out a sneer.
Wei Shengren had seen Long Wanqing entering the Weiqi of Death, but he didn't care about it.
"Long Wanqing, that girl's daughter!? Who the h.e.l.l is your father? That b.a.s.t.a.r.d let that girl's murderer go unpunished for so many years! Hmph!" Wei Shengren's voice carried a chill.
Atop the transparent peony, Gu Hai was standing near the Weiqi of Life, gazing at the nearby Weiqi of Death. His eyes squinted slightly.
"Father, although you told Hall Lord to be on guard against Li Haoran, I think that Hall Lord might not listen to you..." Gu Qin stated, worried.
Gu Hai nodded his agreement and said, "I know, but there are some things I have to stop as soon as possible. She has fallen too deep. Clever as she is, sometimes, she can't see the forest for the trees. IQ and EQ are not the same things. Her current predicament shows that she is more emotional than rational. It will be useless to say anything to her. I can only let her go in and experience it herself!"
"But, then..!" Gu Qin voiced out his worry.
Gu Hai took a look at the Weiqi of Life, and then, turned his gaze to the nearby Weiqi of Death and said, "Wait here! I will go and retrieve another golden piece!"
"Another? Is there one more?" Gu Qin cried out in surprise.
"Yes, the one with Fu Xue earlier, the one controlling the transparent weiqi pieces!" Gu Hai explained.
"Ah? Wasn't that weiqi piece smashed by Wei Yang?" Gu Qin asked, astounded.
"Among the past, present, and the future, only the 'present' is real, only the present is ever existent!" Gu Hai said, shaking his head.
"Hmm!?" Gu Qin looked perplexed.
Gu Hai took a step, and suddenly jumped into the Weiqi of Death.
At the sight of this, the outside world turned even more boisterous.
"Has Gu Hai gone crazy? Wasn't he winning the Weiqi of Life? Why did he jump into the Weiqi of Death?" An extremely baffled look appeared on the faces of many cultivators outside.
Some of the cultivators tried to jump into the Weiqi of Life, hoping to pick up the fruit left by Gu Hai.
But, as soon as they stepped on the giant peony, they were sucked into the Weiqi of Death in the blink of an eye.
"No, why, why!? It's not fair!" those cultivators immediately cried out in despair.
Why can't we enter the Weiqi of Life? Why are we sucked into the Weiqi of Death? We will only be killed by Meng Tai!
Gu Qin stared at the place Gu Hai had disappeared from. Gu Hai had jumped towards the transparent weiqi pieces area. Immediately afterwards, a transparent weiqi weiqi piece was congealed there.
"My Lord has gone into the transparent piece area!? There is only an injured Fu Xue, as well as over thirty thousand demonized humans!?" an ex-convict behind Gu Qin cried out, perplexed.
As Gu Hai jumped into the Weiqi of Death, he felt his entire body quiver, as if something was taken out of his body.
Raising his head to look, he saw a transparent weiqi piece floating above the weiqi board. There was an indistinct golden thread, reappearing and disappearing from time to time, connected to himself.
Soon after, Gu Hai fell into a mountain valley with a loud thump.
The ground below was transparent, just like the outside world. He could clearly see the suppressed earth dragon vein and the eight-colored peony of inheritance below. In addition, there were some cracks on the ground as well.
All around him, the world was filled with mountains and rivers.
The place Gu Hai had crash-landed was a huge mountain valley.
There were some cultivators standing on peaks outside the mountain valley, as if they were blocking anyone from leaving the valley. All around Gu Hai were over thirty thousand demonized humans. Each and every one had a savage look on their faces. Their heads were topped with slithering and hissing snakes.
"This valley is the transparent weiqi piece domain, which is surrounded by the black and white pieces!?" Gu Hai narrowed his eyes.
"Who are you?"
"You are Gu Hai? Why did you also come in?"
"Gu Hai also lost in the Weiqi of Life?"...
After the crowd of demonized humans spotted Gu Hai, they surrounded him at once.
"I can feel his heart beating, his heart and liver must be extremely delicious!" a demonized human said with a ferocious look on his face.
"d.a.m.n, we inexplicably arrived here and were demonized by the Ancestor. Who knows when we can get out. In any case, it doesn't matter. Let's eat him!"
"Yeah, let's eat him!"...
All the demonized humans in the vicinity swarmed at Gu Hai, a grim look on their faces.
"Who is going to eat who, it's still not certain!" A sliver of a cold smile emerged on Gu Hai's lips.
With a wave of his hand, a b.l.o.o.d.y saber appeared in his left hand. His right hand smoothly pulled out a rib.
Gu Hai had pulled out the Life Severing Saber from inside his body. In a flash, his body was surrounded by billowing black qi.
"R...rib!?" a demonized human cried out in surprise.
Gu Hai, turning his head and looking at the crowd of demonized humans in the valley, saying with a somber look on his face, "It's better to die by my hand than to die by the array!"
Done speaking, Gu Hai stepped forward, suddenly rus.h.i.+ng towards the swarming demonized humans.
A billowing stream of power gushed straight into Gu Hai's body, and his strength was pushed to the Nascent Soul Stage in the blink of an eye.
In contrast, almost all the demonized humans in here were in the Golden Core Stage or Xiantian Stage. There was too big of a gap between them and Gu Hai, they were simply not a match for him.
With terrifying speed, the Life Severing Saber painted a b.l.o.o.d.y picture in the blink of an eye. The instant any kind of wound was inflicted on the demonized humans, no matter how small it was, countless small skulls rushed into their bodies through the injury.
"His saber eats people!"
"No, no, no, don't eat me, save me!"
"Ancestor, save me!"...
Protected by swirling black qi, Gu Hai started a b.l.o.o.d.y slaughter. Running from place to place, everywhere the demonized humans were concentrated, Gu Hai began killing ruthlessly.
If these demonized people ever escaped from this place, they would gladly eat humans. Gu Hai simply didn't show any mercy and continued to slaughter them mercilessly.
When anyone was shrouded by the black qi, they would instantly let out blood-curdling screams. When the black qi was gone, all that was left were piles of bones. Gazing at this sight, the faces of the demonized humans distorted in horror.
In the blink of an eye, attacker and defender changed. Under Gu Hai's absolute strength and terrifying speed of slaughter, a hundred demonized humans were killed in the blink of an eye. Gu Hai, wielding a butcher's blade, continued to advance bravely.
As soon as the crowd of demonized folk spotted the black mist, they immediately turn tail and ran, shocked and horrified.
However, with the support of the b.l.o.o.d.y saber, Gu Hai's strength had reached a whole new level. It was impossible for anyone to escape. Alone, Gu Hai began hunting down the tens of thousands of demonized humans.
"Ancestor, save me, save me, Ancestor, ahhh~!"
"It's Gu Hai, help me, it's Gu Hai!"
"Gu Hai, I am a Peony Clan disciple, we are all Peony Clan disciple, we don't have any injustice or hatred with you!"
"Gu Hai, you dare to kill me, ah~!"...
Miserable cries reverberated inside the entire mountain valley. Panic also began to spread in all directions…
In a corner of the mountain valley...
A team of demonized disciples was guarding a b.l.o.o.d.y Fu Xue.
Fu Xue was regulating his breathing, while the demonized men acted as his protectors. Suddenly, they heard blood-curdling screams coming from far away. Hearing them, the expressions of the team of demonized men changed.
Fu Xue, who was regulating his breathing, immediately opened his eyes; a cold gleam flashed in his eyes.
"Ancestor, it's Gu Hai! It's happening again, the same scene as Song Jia Sect!" a demonized disciple reported with an unsightly look.
They soon saw demonized people fleeing from the distant black mist. Wherever the black mist went, piles of bones were left behind. At the sight of that terrifying killing speed, Fu Xue's face sank.
"It's Gu Hai again!?" A somber look appeared on Fu Xue's face.
It was not the first time that he had started a feud with Gu Hai. No, it had happened at the entrance of the Song Jia Sect, and outside the Gu Mansion, as well! Both times, Fu Xue had never had an advantage.
"Hmph!" Fu Xue let out a cold snort.
Slowly, he stood up, and charged straight at Gu Hai at once.
This time, Fu Xue was prepared to employ a one hit kill. He simply didn't want to have any nonsensical talk with Gu Hai, and also, he didn't want to be deceived by Gu Hai again.
Like a sh.e.l.l fired from a cannon, Fu Xue arrived before the black misty area and immediately clawed toward Gu Hai within the black vortex.
Fu Xue clawed out with his hand in the shape of a dragon claw with an irresistible might, like it could tear through everything. He was about to tear Gu Hai into pieces in the blink of an eye.
"Fu Xue!? I have been waiting for you so long!" Gu Hai suddenly started laughing.
A dazzling golden glow suddenly bloomed from the black vortex as a golden ring flew out from within, promptly cras.h.i.+ng into the dragon claw.
With a thunderous boom, the dragon claw was suddenly smashed apart. It was like the golden glow from the ring could easily melt the strength of the claw!
"This!?" Fu Xue's face distorted in shock.
"Dragon Locking Ring, it's the special magical tool for dealing with the dragon clan!" Gu Hai stated, sneering.
"Impossible! How could you refine the Dragon Locking Ring with your pitiful cultivation?" Fu Xue cried out in shock.
"When I poured my True Yuan into it, I discovered that there were 28x28 Heaven and Earth grand arrays inside, that's all. I am quite familiar with that array. After my True Yuan cycled through the grand array, this Dragon Locking Ring was under my control!" Gu Hai said, laughing.
Having said that, the Dragon Locking Ring suddenly grew larger. Radiating a dazzling golden glow, it hurtled towards Fu Xue.
"No...no...no, why are your weiqi skills so amazing, why!?" Fu Xue turned tail and ran in terror.
However, the Dragon Locking Ring soared to an unimaginable speed in the blink of an eye, and smashed into Fu Xue's body with a thunderous bang.
Fu Xue let out a deafening roar. After being smashed by the terrifying might of the Dragon Locking Ring, he transformed into a huge, five hundred-zhang long flood dragon!
The Dragon Locking Ring seemed to weigh tens of thousands of tons. It was like a mountain, pressing down on Fu Xue and suppressing him.
"No, b.a.s.t.a.r.d!!! How can there be a magical tool to specifically deal with the dragon clan?" the flood dragon struggled and roared futilely. His figure quivered, as if he wanted to break away from the Dragon Locking Ring.
However, the Dragon Locking Ring was a magical tool refined by Elder Guanqi himself. Naturally, its power was exceptionally terrifying. In a flash, it was difficult for Fu Xue to move even the tiniest bit.
"Kill Gu Hai for me, everyone attack! I want Gu Hai dead! Tire him to death! I will kill anyone who dares to disobey my order!" the flood dragon roared out a brutal command.
The many thousands of demonized humans roared out obediently, and immediately charged at Gu Hai within the black mist!
