Chapter 157 - The Death of Fu Xue!
Atop the giant peony...
The brows of Gu Qin and his ten men twitched, watching the nearby Weiqi of Death.
Right before their eyes, Gu Hai had entered the weiqi world, transformed into a transparent weiqi piece, and fell amid the other transparent pieces. The next moment, they noticed a transparent piece suddenly breaking into pieces.
"The weiqi piece next to My Lord's is broken!? He has been killed by My Lord!?"
"Another transparent piece is broken, My Lord has killed another!"
"This time ten pieces have broken at the same time, My Lord has killed ten at once!"
"Not good, all the transparent weiqi pieces are swarming to My Lord's position. They want to deal with My Lord together!"
"What should we do!?"...
The team of Gu Hai's subordinates were anxious. However, they were taken aback the very next moment.
"The number of transparent pieces broken is increasing at an astonis.h.i.+ng speed! It seem My Lord has started a ma.s.sacre!"
"Just like the Song Jia Ma.s.sacre, my Lord is going to slaughter the demonized humans!?"
"There are over thirty thousand people in there, can my Lord kill them all alone?"
"Oh, this time, a hundred pieces, a hundred pieces are broken!"
"It's like my Lord is harvesting wheat!"...
The horde of people simply couldn't stop Gu Hai's footsteps. Transparent weiqi pieces were breaking in vast numbers again and again.
At the sight of this, Gu Qin's eyes were filled with happiness. Father is killing a whole lot of people. He is simply too fierce. Five hundred weiqi pieces broken in such a short time! How long can those demonized humans hold on?
Just like Gu Qin and Gu Hai's subordinates, many people outside were also concerned about Gu Hai. After all, Gu Hai's appearance had long become the focus of attention here, particularly after he had solved the Weiqi of Life. Many people were concerned about each and every movement of his!
Watching Gu Hai turning into a transparent piece, countless cultivators held him in contempt. But then shock and awe descended, and at last, turned into fear.
"So terrifying! Were they killed by Gu Hai? In this short while, he has killed eight hundred demonized humans!?"
"Although we can't see the situation inside the weiqi game, it must be Gu Hai! That weiqi piece is Gu Hai!"
"The Song Jia Sect ma.s.sacre is about to be repeated!"
"This time, Gu Hai is going to slaughter over thirty thousand demonized humans! How did he, this monstrosity, this devil lord, cultivate?"
"A majority of these thirty thousand or so cultivators are Peony Clan disciples! If Gu Hai really ma.s.sacres them clean, then, I believe, Gu Hai alone has destroyed all five major sects of Nine-Five Island!"
"Golden Tong, completely destroyed! Clear River Sect, completely destroyed! Song Jia Sect, completely destroyed! Ding Long Clan, completely destroyed! Peony Sect, completely destroyed!? All five sects have been completely destroyed, Gu Hai didn't spare even one of them!"
"Devil Gu! What a close call, that was really close!... Luckily, I didn't continue to block Gu Hai earlier!"
"That's right, earlier, you lot actually went and blocked Gu Hai, having no idea of death and danger! See! So many are dead!"...
Watching the weiqi pieces as they were smashed continuously at an astonis.h.i.+ng speed, horror took over many people's expressions. The ferocity of Devil Gu was bored deeply into everyone's hearts. Vigilance rose from the depths of their souls.
Inside the Weiqi of Death, the mountain valley where Gu Hai had previously landed...
With his strength boosted to the peak by the b.l.o.o.d.y saber, wherever the Life Severing Saber went, it brought endless horror.
Kill, Kill, Kill, Kill, Kill, Kill!
Gu Hai was struck with ten swords. Nonetheless, he was already standing on a dense pile of bones. It didn't take long before there were two thousand skeletons lying under his feet!
It was a completely one-sided slaughter. The demonized humans were seized with terror.
The demonized humans charged at Gu Hai in vast numbers, yet all they could do was lay down their lives under Gu Hai's saber. The sight of countless little skulls devouring their kind horrified them even more!
"Devil! Save me!" A demonized human turned around and fled into the distance.
"Come back here!" shouted Fu Xue, who was still trapped by the Dragon Locking Ring.
"No, Ancestor, I don't want to, I don't want to!" that demonized human cried out in horror before continuing to flee.
"Hmph!" Fu Xue let out a cold snort.
Immediately afterwards, that fleeing demonized human was suddenly blasted into a cloud of b.l.o.o.d.y mist with a bang; not even his skeleton remained!
At the sight of this, all the demonized humans quivered. Their Ancestor could take the lives of all the demonized humans with just a flicker of thought!
"Whoever dares to retreat will be blasted to death! The only way to live is to advance! Kill Gu Hai for me, tire him to death! Arrrrgh!!!" the flood dragon Fu Xue roared out.
"Kill!" the crowd of demonized humans c.o.c.ked their heads as they roared, before charging at Gu Hai together.
There were far too many swords and sabers. Gu Hai was inevitably stabbed. However, Gu Hai had the Life Severing Saber. His bones could transform. The moment a sword p.r.i.c.ked his body, a bone simmering with metallic gloss promptly emerged outside his body at the place he was p.r.i.c.ked.
The sword was immediately blocked by the metallic bone with a metallic clang.
Under Gu Hai's will, many metallic bones emerged through his skin, growing on his body, sticking to his skin like armor.
"Die!" Gu Hai shouted in a chilling voice.
Countless demonized humans were throwing themselves at Gu Hai. However, Gu Hai had a terrifying defense with his armor, and so he was completely focused on offense. In no time, a hundred more demonized humans were completely annihilated under his saber.
Many demonized humans were split in twain at the waist before the little skulls from the black qi of the Life Severing Saber swarmed their remains, devouring their flesh madly.
In the blink of an eye, more bones devoid of any flesh crashed to the ground. The bones continued to pile up on the ground, giving rise to a hill of them!
A terrified look also appeared on the face of the struggling flood dragon nearby.
"Impossible, what is that saber? How is this possible?" Fu Xue stared at Gu Hai, horrified.
More bones scattered across the valley, the b.l.o.o.d.y saber slashed in all directions, and the black qi roamed freely. As the crowd of demonized humans was densely packed, the speed of their ma.s.sacre was also astonis.h.i.+ngly fast. In the blink of an eye, over eight thousand demonized humans had been turned into bones!
Let alone the countless cultivators outside looking on, who continued to call Gu Hai “Devil Gu”, even the suppressed Fu Xue was also inexplicably terrified by this speed of ma.s.sacre.
Under the dreadful ma.s.sacre, the crowd of demonized humans had already lost their will to fight. Some had eyes red with bloodl.u.s.t, but nonetheless, Gu Hai was just like a giant meat grinder, that continued to cut apart the sea of demonized humans in a steady stream.
Kill, Kill, Kill, Kill, Kill!
Gu Qin and his men were already holding their breath, looking at the sea of transparent pieces. There was a weiqi piece at the center, and whenever it slightly shook, all the weiqi pieces around it were quickly smashed to pieces.
"My Lord has smashed 12,000 pieces already!?" one of his men asked, swallowing loudly.
Why is my Lord so much terrifying than before?
Last time, when he killed over 5,000 Song Jia Sect disciples, it still took him more than two days! This time, over 10,000 people have been killed, in just the time it takes to burn a joss stick! How does My Lord even cultivate?
Inside the weiqi game...
Horror was clearly written on the flood dragon's face. His body fiercely thrashed and wriggled, trying to break away from the binding of the Immortal Dragon Ring. At the same time, he desperately urged his demonized thralls to stall Gu Hai. If they couldn't stall Gu Hai, he would be in danger! Whoever dared to flee he immediately destroyed!
As a result, the demonized humans continued to throw themselves at Gu Hai, sending themselves to their doom. Again and again, their attacks landed on Gu Hai, and inevitably they were blocked by Gu Hai's bone armor, one after another!
The flood dragon let out a deafening roar as it went all out to lift the Dragon Locking Ring even a tiny bit.
"Why, why, why does the Dragon Locking Ring have the power to deal with the Dragon Clan! I am unwilling, I am unwilling!" Fu Xue roared, a savage look on his face.
The flood dragon opened his jaws wide, biting and gnawing at the Dragon Locking Ring, trying to break it to pieces!
The Dragon Locking Ring bloomed with a dazzling golden glow immediately, but the flood dragon relentlessly bit at it more and more ferociously. The flood dragon knew that the only way he would survive was to break it!
"Song Shengping, you old b.a.s.t.a.r.d, you did a good job; even in death you won't let me be at peace!" the flood dragon swore, continuing to bite at the Dragon Locking Ring with a ferocious look on his face.
The Dragon Locking Ring originally belonged to Song Shengping. When the man had offered to let the Song Jia Sect disciples be demonized and cooperated with the flood dragon, he did so precisely because he had the Dragon Locking Ring! But at last, the firewood was extracted from the burning cauldron, and after going back and forth, it was finally used by Gu Hai!
The flood dragon was quietly depressed. He gnawed at the Dragon Locking Ring ever more desperately!
After two hours...
A sliver of a crack suddenly appeared on the Dragon Locking Ring.
"It cracked!? The Dragon Locking Ring is going to be broken by me, I will break it!" the flood dragon cried out in joy.
The flood dragon could already feel the power suppressing his body weaken a lot.
"Your teeth sure are st.u.r.dy!" an ice-cold voice suddenly rang in his ear.
Hearing that, the flood dragon's face distorted as he slowly turned around...
Only to see Gu Hai, wearing tight armor s.h.i.+ning with a silver light, the bone and b.l.o.o.d.y sabers in his hands, coldly looking back at him.
"Where are the others?!" The flood dragon's expression changed.
He turned his head to look, but all he saw were piles of bones scattered behind Gu Hai. Not one of the thirty thousand or so demonized humans was spared; all of them had been reduced to bones!
The entire valley looked like a sea of bones. It was incomparably ghastly!
"No need to look, I have already killed everyone! All their strength is stored inside my body, it really isn't comfortable! In fact, storing it inside my body is injuring me! Pu! d.a.m.n, I am coughing blood! I am at the peak stage of the Xiantian Stage, but I am unable to break through to the Golden Core Stage!" Gu Hai swore coldly, spitting out a mouthful of blood.
"You ma.s.sacred every one of them? Impossible! There were over thirty thousand of them!" Horror was clearly written all over the flood dragon's face.
"There is still you, Fu Xue, isn't there?" Gu Hai stated emotionlessly.
"Gu Hai, why do you want to kill me? You and I don't have any animosity! We can cooperate, let's cooperate! If it comes worse to worse, I can listen to you later!" the flood dragon's expression changed as he cried out, terrified.
Gu Hai, on the other hand, shook his head and said, "Back then, I killed Clear River Sect Chief to help him get free of you. However, I owed him a favor for his previous help, but you harmed him, turned him into something neither ghost nor human! I will kill you to avenge him! Don't beg for mercy, it will make me look down on you!"
Having said that, Gu Hai thrust his saber at Fu Xue.
Fu Xue let out a roar of anger.
However, after being suppressed by the Dragon Locking Ring, it was far too difficult for him to simply dodge!
Opening his jaws, Fu Xue bit the Dragon Locking Ring again, this time in total desperation!
Multiple cracks appeared on the Dragon Locking Ring, growing at a frightening pace.
Even if he could ruin the Dragon Locking Ring by utilizing all his strength, he still could not prevent Gu Hai's Life Severing Saber from piercing his skin!
BOOM! Billowing black qi charged straight towards the wound as countless skulls frantically devoured the flood dragon Fu Xue!
Fu Xue roared as he writhed and thrashed desperately, continuing to bite at the Dragon Locking Ring. However, his entire body was completely shrouded by the black qi!
The flood dragon desperately struggled within the black mist for his life, as the Dragon Locking Ring bloomed with a last golden flicker.
The Dragon Locking Ring exploded to pieces with a bang. It had finally been destroyed by Fu Xue!
Nevertheless, Fu Xue's miserable screams continued to rise from inside the black vortex.
Fu Xue anxiously leapt away, jumping out of the black mist. However, the thing that jumped out it was not the flood dragon... it was the flood dragon's bones! The only place which still had a bit of flesh and blood was his head, the rest of his flesh and bones were completely gone! All that remained was bones!
The flood dragon let out a final, sorrowful roar before he was surrounded by billowing black mist once more. Countless small skulls started devouring what was left of him.
After a good long while, no other sounds rose from within the black vortex. Everything had quieted down. The black qi returned to the Life Severing Saber.
"Ke ke ke!"
Gu Hai spat out blood, again and again, glaring at a long dragon bone lying on the ground nearby.
"The energy in Fu Xue's flesh and blood is really terrifying, and yet I can't break through to the Golden Core Stage! This power almost blew me up! It's so uncomfortable!" An unsightly look appeared on Gu Hai's face.
"Hmm?" Gu Hai's expression changed.
After the Dragon Locking Ring was crushed to pieces just now, it turned into mist and disappeared. However, there was one left thing left behind in the vortex, a white crystal!
In the blink of an eye, the white crystal dove into Gu Hai's glabella, and fused with the white crystal floating inside the s.p.a.ce of his glabella as soon as they came in contact!
The two crystals fused into one, becoming bigger!
Inside the s.p.a.ce of his glabella, the black piece was floating high up in the air, like it was lording over the world. At the bottom were forty thousand endgames, merging slowly. Just underneath the black piece was the white crystal.
It was the crystal of the 28x28 heaven and earth grand array from the magical tool refined by Elder Guanqi that Gu Hai had obtained in the past. There was a similar crystal inside the Dragon Locking Ring, as well!?
"This crystal? It... it wouldn't be the fragment of that 'Celestial Weiqi Piece' of Elder Guanqi, would it?" Gu Hai's countenance suddenly changed.
"So... the black piece that brought me from earth isn't this world's ninth magical tool, the Celestial Weiqi Piece!? The true Celestial Weiqi Piece was broken into fragments by Elder Guanqi, hidden inside the magical tools left behind by him!?" Gu Hai's face immediately sank.
"How deep are the plans of this Old Monster, can't he rest in peace!?" A slightly depressed look appeared on Gu Hai's face.
Had it been someone else, they would have long rejoiced. This was but a fragment of the Celestial Weiqi Piece, but Gu Hai was avoiding it like it was some snake or scorpion!
Taking a deep breath, Gu Hai calmed himself. Suppressing the restlessness in his heart, he turned his head to look towards the distant peaks.
But the people standing at the peaks had already disappeared!
At the sight of this, Gu Hai's eyebrows twitched. "Where are they? When I arrived, they were standing right there! No, something must have happened on Long Wanqing's side, those people were forced to leave!"
Gu Hai took a deep breath before he put away the two sabers. Then he changed his clothes and stomped on the ground, jumping into the distance.
The moment Gu Hai left, the countless cultivators outside were seized by terror. All the other transparent pieces had disappeared, not one of them remained. Over thirty thousand men had been completely killed by Gu Hai!
The many cultivators outside the giant peony were greatly intimidated.
"Fortunately, I didn't block him!"
"This... who will still dare to look at Gu Hai for trouble now!?"...
Everyone in the Weiqi of Life, on the other hand, was very excited!
"All the transparent weiqi pieces have been broken, my Lord has killed over thirty thousand men, all of them!"
"My Lord's weiqi piece clone, that transparent piece is also changing, it has changed into a golden piece!"
"I understand! When My Lord killed all the transparent pieces, his weiqi piece clone turned golden. Clearly, My Lord has revived the golden piece of the transparent weiqi pieces!"
"My Lord has become a player!"
"Father is also a player!" Gu Qin rejoiced.
