Book 6: Chapter 040: The Strong Gu Hai
A large hole broke open in the Western Sea Dragon Palaces barrier. Boundless water poured in from the Western Sea, resulting in torrential rain in the Western Sea Dragon Palace. The buildings near the hole got inundated.
Heavy rain also fell at the dragons gates area. There was already a layer of water covering the ground.
Many of the Wu Nation officials and dragons gathered outside; they did not dare to enter.
Gu Hai fought Di s.h.i.+tian in a fierce battle. When the twos palms pressed against each other, Gu Hai firmly suppressed Di s.h.i.+tian.
How did you cultivate your physical body?! Di s.h.i.+tian goggled in disbelief.
Di s.h.i.+tian, its time for you to retreat, Gu Hai snarled ferociously.
As the two were deadlocked, cold energy shot over from behind Gu Hai.
Your Reverence! Shangguan Hen cried out.
Shangguan Hen did not hesitate to use the tortoisesh.e.l.l on its back to s.h.i.+eld Gu Hai.
A profound tortoise possessed formidable defenses. No matter what Ao Sheng did earlier, the black dragon could not get past them.
However, Long Shenwus sword strike was too powerful.
The sword pierced through the profound tortoise.
Huh? How can this be? Blood spewed out of Shangguan Hens mouth as it showed an expression of disbelief.
Even after piercing through the profound tortoise, the sword did not lose any speed, continuing toward Gu Hai.
Your Reverence! Shangguan Hen roared.
The tortoises body spun around and moved towards Gu Hai.
Huh? Gu Hais expression changed.
Gu Hai hastily knocked Di s.h.i.+tian away. Then, he dodged the sword strike.
Humph! You spoiled our plans. Humph! Long Shenwu shouted furiously as the sword in his hand trembled.
Dont! The expressions of Gu Hai and Chang Ming changed.
Di s.h.i.+tian suddenly showed an uncertain look in his eyes.
Shangguan Hens body exploded, blasted to pieces.
Gu Hai immediately rushed forward and grabbed Shangguan Hens head.
Prime Shangguan! Chang Ming exclaimed in the distance.
The large profound tortoise head turned into a human head. He appeared to still have one last breath.
Your Reverence, this subject can no longer see the Han Nation prosper. I ask Your Reverence to help this subject care for the black tortoises. Many thanks for Your Reverences recognition and acknowledgment. Shangguan Hen has no regrets. After Shangguan Hens head said that, his eyes started to close.
As Gu Hai recalled the past events, he felt distraught.
We have not permitted you to die, so you will not die! Gu Hai narrowed his eyes.
Di s.h.i.+tian looked at Long Shenwu with some disdain in his eyes. Haha! Long Shenwu, what a sneak attack! You are indeed a cold-blooded person, only good at small tricks like this.
Humph! Long Shenwu snorted coldly, ignoring Di s.h.i.+tian.
The two did not think much about Gu Hais statement, We have not permitted you to die, so you will not die! They thought Gu Hai only said that out of a deep friends.h.i.+p with Shangguan Hen.
However, they saw Gu Hai extend his hand and take out a large tub.
Then, Gu Hai poured a nine-colored liquid into the tub. The two could not determine what it was, but it seemed extremely strange.
Next, Gu Hai placed Shangguan Hens head into the tub.
Shangguan Hens closing eyes suddenly snapped open.
What? He is not dead? Di s.h.i.+tians face sank.
Shangguan Hen only has his head left? Ah! Why are there blood vessels coming out below the head? Huh? Now bones are appearing? Muscle? Thisthis the countless dragons outside exclaimed in shock.
What is that liquid? To think it can help Shangguan Hen reconstruct his body? someone marveled.
Huff! What? Your Reverence, I, Shangguan Hen said in shock.
Just rest and recuperate while you reconstruct your physical body. We said it earlier. We have not permitted you to die, so you will not die. Now, watch how we take revenge for you, Gu Hai said as he looked at Long Shenwu with a cold expression.
Gu Hais eyes blazed with anger. Long Shenwus face sank at the sight.
What is in that tub? It managed to regenerate everything when there was only a head left? Di s.h.i.+tian felt incredibly shocked.
Naturally, it was Mending Heaven Energy restoring Shangguan Hens physical body in the tub. However, Gu Hai would not tell the two.
Di s.h.i.+tian, hah! You are truly relentless. We have already given you face. Humph! Gu Hai showed a cold expression.
What did you say? Di s.h.i.+tians face sank.
You too, Long Shenwu. Initially, we did not plan on clas.h.i.+ng with you on account of Long Zhanguo. However, you tried to kill us today? You even nearly killed our national beasts prime? Haha! Since that is the case, we shall help Long Zhanguo discipline his unfilial son! Gu Hai shouted coldly.
Right after Gu Hai shouted, he stomped. Like a sharp arrow, he shot toward Long Shenwu.
Humph! You are seeking death! Long Shenwus expression turned cold as he swung his sword at Gu Hai.
Even without energy, Long Shenwu was incredibly strong. Otherwise, he could not have pierced through a profound tortoises sh.e.l.l or exploded a profound tortoises body.
Although the sword swung toward Gu Hai, he did not move away.
Instead, Gu Hai extended a hand to grab the sword.
You are using your physical body to catch our divine sword? You are seeking death! Long Shenwu showed a cold expression as he put more strength into his sword, aiming for Gu Hais hand.
Gu Hais palm took on the color of bone.
When the palm and the sword collided, the antic.i.p.ated severance of Gu Hais hand did not happen. To think that his right palm was even tougher than a profound tortoises sh.e.l.l!
Gu Hai grabbed Long Shenwus divine sword, preventing it from moving.
This slap is for Shangguan Hen! Gu Hai roared with a ferocious expression as he swung out his left palm.
Gu Hai moved too fast, sweeping his palm with great strength towards Long Shenwus mouth.
Long Shenwus expression changed as he tried to retract his sword to block. However, the sword did not budge as if it had grown roots; it could not escape Gu Hais palm. Long Shenwu could only use his other hand to block Gu Hais left palm hurriedly.
Gu Hai knocked away Long Shenwus hand.
A loud slap resounded in the dragons gates area. Gu Hais blow sent Long Shenwu flying.
Only after cras.h.i.+ng into a large mountain, breaking it in the middle, did Long Shenwu stop.
Everyone in the vicinity suddenly fell silent, watching in disbelief as Long Shenwu climbed out of the rubble.
Now, a handprint marked Long Shenwus mouth. He no longer had his divine sword, having left it in Gu Hais hand.
As Long Shenwu climbed out of the rubble, his eyes were wide with incredulity. To think that Gu Hai had sent him flying with one slap, furthermore, a slap to the face?
Divine sword? Humph! Gu Hai snorted coldly.
Gu Hai held the blade with one hand and the handle with the other. Then, he bent the sword.
The divine sword snapped.
The Icy Heaven Divine Sword? How could the strongest divine sword of the Yong Province be broken like this? countless Wu Nation officials exclaimed outside.
Di s.h.i.+tians face sank as he gazed at Gu Hai. You did not use your full strength earlier?
Scram! Gu Hai glared at Di s.h.i.+tian.
Scram? Excellent! Excellent! Excellent! Scram? What a formidable stance! I like killing formidable people! Di s.h.i.+tian suddenly rushed over with a ferocious expression.
Di s.h.i.+tians pride prevented him from quailing in fear of anything. Even if Gu Hais physical body was stronger than his, he would still fight. Retreat did not exist in his dictionary.
Furthermore, Gu Hai was only in the early-stage Middle Heavenly Palace Realm. How could he retreat?
Di s.h.i.+tian rushed at Gu Hai.
In the distant rubble, Long Shenwu touched the handprint on his face, feeling utterly humiliated.
A sovereign could be killed but not humiliated.
Which sovereign did not aspire to expand their territory? Which sovereign did not possess great pride? All sovereigns had the heart of an expert and the drive to become the strongest. Could Long Shenwu flee after being slapped by a Middle Heavenly Palace Realm cultivator and seek his revenge some other time? That was impossible. He had to climb up from where he fell.
Furthermore, he had many officials present. How could hea sovereignlet his officials witness him fleeing in fear after getting slapped?
What a joke!
Long Shenwu pushed off the ground, launching himself towards Gu Hai. Long Shenwu wanted to avenge his great humiliation with his own hands.
What seemed like two sharp arrows shot toward Gu Hai.
Good timing! Gu Hai glared as he threw punches.
Gu Hais strong physical body stopped Long Shenwu and Di s.h.i.+tian. They immediately came charging back; however, he did not remain idle, rapidly moving his hands.
Afterimages of Gu Hais, Long Shenwus, and Di s.h.i.+tians attacks filled the area.
Gu Hai showed a ferocious expression, attacking increasingly faster and more brutally.
Boom! Gu Hais fist landed on Di s.h.i.+tians chest, sending him flying.
Then, Gu Hais palm struck the unmarked side of Long Shenwus face.
Gu Hai sent Long Shenwu flying again.
You! Long Shenwu roared while glowering.
One slap had already been very humiliating. Now, Gu Hai slapped him again?
This slap is on behalf of Long Zhanguo, for being an unfilial son and failing to live up to your Long family name! Gu Hai snarled.
Di s.h.i.+tian looked at Gu Hai, his eyelids twitching wildly.
When he got punched by Gu Hai earlier, he had been livid. However, his situation was much better than Long Shenwus.
Water flooded the surroundings.
Chang Ming and Ao Sheng continued fighting. However, they no longer had their hearts in it. Their battle was far from comparable to that of the three nearby; the two discovered theirs was like a childrens squabble in contrast.
Why is Gu Hai so strong? Ao Sheng said with disbelief.
Some of the dragons and Wu Nation officials stepped into the area.
The ones at the very front immediately vomited blood and fainted. The restriction on the dragons gates area was horrific.
The nine-colored liquid in the tub decreased slowly as it infused into Shangguan Hens body. His physical body could be seen steadily regenerating, his meridians, bones, flesh, blood, and skin growing at a visible pace, strangely restored. This confused those in the surroundings.
When the floodwaters had risen to a persons height, Shangguan Hen finished reconstructing his physical body.
However, his physical body seemed incomparably weak. He climbed out of the tub with much difficulty. The Mending Heaven Energy had been used up at this point.
Shangguan Hen searched the fragments of his previous body and found his storage ring. Then, he took out some clothes and put them on. However, after donning clothes, he seemed sapped of strength. He collapsed on a large rock and watched the three fight.
The battle between the three grew increasingly rampageous.
However, Gu Hai possessed a powerful physical body. Even when Di s.h.i.+tian and Long Shenwu worked together, he repeatedly sent them flying.
His Reverence is mighty! Shangguan Hen marveled.
