Book 6: Chapter 063: Gu Hai vs. Xuan Du
Kong Xuan fought the Flame Monarch, Shangguan Hen fought Prime Feng Yue, and Ao Shun fought Ao Sheng.
Gu Hai watched the three battles for a while before suddenly turning to face a distant mountain forest, showing a cold gaze. The distant Xuan Dus expression changed.
He discovered us? Xuan Du said in shock.
Gu Hai, I have completed the second favor. As for the rats over there, consider it a gift! The Mosquito Daoist smiled.
Many thanks, Mister Mosquito Daoist. Gu Hai nodded.
Since the Mosquito Daoist pointed out Xuan Dus hiding place, Xuan Du stopped hiding.
Twenty figures suddenly took to the skies and arrived near Borderless Heavenly Capital in the blink of an eye.
The Supreme Ascendant Dao? Xuan Du? Gu Hai said coldly.
Gu Hai had seen a portrait of Xuan Du before. He also knew of the grudge between Zang Yulian and Xuan Du. Naturally, he knew that this person wanted to harm his wife, so there was no need to be nice to Xuan Du.
You recognize me? Hah! It looks like Zang Yulian told you. Gu Hai, where is Zang Yulian?! Xuan Du said coldly.
As Gu Hai looked at Xuan Du, he showed a faint sneer. Fool!
What did you say? Xuan Du said while glaring coldly.
We said that you are a fool. Now, we add on idiot. To think that you want to hear insults again! Gu Hai said coldly.
Rage flared in Xuan Dus eyes.
One of the Supreme Ascendant Dao disciples immediately snarled furiously, Do you think you can humiliate First Senior Brother? Gu Hai, you overestimate yourself!
As that Supreme Ascendant Dao disciple spoke, he swung his sword at Gu Hai. A thirty-odd-kilometer-long sword light appeared out of nowhere and flew at Borderless Heavenly Capital, looking like it would cut Borderless Heavenly Capital in half along with Gu Hai.
Gu Hai extended his hand, and a crimson saber appeared in it.
The moment the crimson saber appeared, a surging crimson light soared up.
While others only saw a beam of crimson light, the Supreme Ascendant Dao disciple at the front saw an illusion of a sea of blood.
The ground below seemed to turn into an overwhelming, infinite, churning sea of blood with millions of demons rus.h.i.+ng at that Supreme Ascendant Dao disciple.
It was not just below. The sea of blood surrounded him.
That Supreme Ascendant Dao disciple let out a startled cry, and the sword light in his hand stopped as horror appeared on his face.
The approaching saber light instantly chopped that Supreme Ascendant Dao disciple in half. Then, the two halves fell from the sky without leaking any blood. The Life Killer Saber had absorbed all the blood.
The Supreme Ascendant Dao disciples cried out as they caught the two halves of the dried corpse.
First Senior Brother, that Gu Hai killed Junior Brother, not even leaving him with any blood or spiritual souls. We must cut him into ten thousand pieces! one of the Supreme Ascendant Dao disciples said ferociously.
The Middle Heavenly Palace Realm? You are only in the Middle Heavenly Palace Realm. What saber technique is that? Xuan Du raised his eyebrows.
The Middle Heavenly Palace Realm? Thats not right! First Senior Brother, Junior Brother reached the Upper Heavenly Palace Realm three years ago. How could he not last even one move against Gu Hai? the Supreme Ascendant Dao disciples said skeptically.
However, Xuan Du stared at Gu Hai.
Ancestor Ming He Blood Sea Saber, have you heard of it before? Gu Hai said with a cold smile.
Gu Hai studied the saber techniques he had learned on Earth while in the eighteenth layer of h.e.l.l. He felt this saber technique was especially suitable for the Life Killer Saber. When he gave it a try today, it was indeed effective.
Supreme Ascendant Heartless Sword Formation! Xuan Du called out coldly.
Suddenly, the bodies of the eighteen Supreme Ascendant Dao disciples behind Xuan Du emanated white light and turned into three-hundred-odd-meter-long swords. The swords had baleful auras and shot out boundless sword qi.
Eighteen swords revolved around Xuan Du, forming a sword Dao force field. Millions of sword qi spread out, shooting toward Borderless Heavenly Capital.
Huh? Gu Hais face sank as he extended his hand and waved.
The Life Trapper Ritual Array created a barrier to protect the city.
Countless sword qi struck the barrier protecting the city. The barrier shuddered as though it would break.
They are all in the Upper Heavenly Palace Realm? They live up to being the Myriad Age Daoist Sect. To think that they have such acc.u.mulations! the Mosquito Daoist commented gravely.
The Supreme Ascendant Heartless Sword Formation? Gu Hais face sank.
Gu Hai had heard Zang Yulian mention it before. This sword formation was very powerful. The more people there were, the more powerful it would be. Furthermore, the increase in strength was exponential. Here, there were eighteen Upper Heavenly Palace Realm cultivators?
The one Gu Hai chopped down earlier was in the early-stage Upper Heavenly Palace Realm. That was not enough for him to take seriously. However, there were now eighteen Upper Heavenly Palace Realm cultivators, so he had to be cautious.
Just the sword qi from the sword Dao force field were already enough to shake the defensive barrier.
Gu Hai, I initially did not desire to make things difficult for you. I could have spared you from death if you handed over Zang Yulian. However, you actually have no awareness of your situation. Humph! It looks like my Supreme Ascendant Dao has been too reclusive. To think that a bunch of strays dares to snub us?! Xuan Du said with a ferocious expression.
Sever the emotions! Xuan Du waved.
Xuan Du grabbed one of the eighteen swords and swung it at the barrier.
The countless sword qi and the sword aura seemed to coalesce, looking like a heavenly river rus.h.i.+ng down at Borderless Heavenly Capital.
White light illuminated the world. The power caused the hearts of countless officials and citizens to tremble.
The barrier broke with a loud report, and the sword continued toward Gu Hai.
Treasure, please! Gu Hai shouted, and two calabashes appeared beside him.
The Immortal Slaying Flying Saber was the first to shoot out, charging at the large manifested sword. Countless vines erupted from the Vine World Calabash, reaching for the sky.
The Immortal Slaying Flying Saber clashed with the white sword light, momentarily delaying the white sword light.
The Immortal Slaying Flying Saber flew back. It had blocked the sword strike for only a while before returning to the calabash.
The vines reached up and grabbed the white sword light. However, the sword light was very powerful. With a slight pull, it tore many of the vines.
The white light easily swept through everything in its path as it rushed toward Gu Hai. However, it had already been significantly weakened.
Xuan Du showed a cold glint in his eyes.
Gu Hai changed out for the Life Executioner Saber.
Sixth Cycle! Gu Hai bellowed with a fierce look on his face.
The world turned purple.
The saber and the sword clashed loudly. The ground under Gu Hai shook.
When the purple light and white light faded, everyone felt horrified.
The ground under Gu Hai had spiderweb-like cracks where he braced his feet.
Gu Hais figure had enlarged. However, he managed to block the attack.
The shock wave and winds from the clash knocked over countless buildings.
Your Reverence! Meng Tai, Gao Xianzhi, and the others called out worriedly.
Gu Hai ignored them. He took a deep breath as he looked coldly at Xuan Du in the sky.
That earlier sword strike could easily have killed a fourth-layer Upper Heavenly Palace Realm cultivator. Yet, Gu Hai, you blocked it with just the strength of a Middle Heavenly Palace Realm cultivator? You are incredible! the Mosquito Daoist said with a strange expression.
The Mosquito Daoist had always thought Gu Hai was incredibly powerful. However, was there a need to put on such a pretense?
That is the weakest sword. Gu Hai, what do you think? Xuan Du said with a cold smile.
Hah! It is only so-so! Gu Hai sneered.
Only so-so? Hahahaha! The Immortal Slaying Calabash and the Vine World Calabash? Plus your Life Executioner Saber? It is indeed impressive for a Middle Heavenly Palace Realm cultivator to block my sword strike. However, do you think that that is all I have? Humph! Fool? Who is the fool now? Xuan Du sneered.
As Xuan Du spoke, he waved his hand. This time, it was not just one sword but eighteen. He used them all, wanting to swing them down on Borderless Heavenly Capital.
The Mosquito Daoist suddenly smiled. Gu Hai, I know where the weakness of this sword formation is. How about I break the sword formation for you?
Oh? There is a weakness? Gu Hais expression changed.
Thats right. If I help you, I can immediately break it. That will count as the third favor, the Mosquito Daoist offered, smiling.
The Mosquito Daoist had faced this formation before. Since he managed to escape, he naturally had a good understanding of it.
Xuan Du suddenly paused upon seeing the Mosquito Daoists intention to interfere. With a sullen expression, he said, Mosquito Daoist, if you dare to interfere, then dont blame me for being hard on you!
Oh? Xuan Du? You can be hard on me? Hahahaha! Even that old thing, your master, did not dare to say such things to me one thousand years ago, yet you think you can? the Mosquito Daoist sneered.
Indeed, I cant do anything about you. However, someone can. Look at what this is! Xuan Du smiled coldly.
Xuan Du took out a lush-green jade token.
The Myriad Age Daoist Sects chief authority signal? The Mosquito Daoists face stiffened.
Once the Myriad Age Daoist Sects chief authority signal is launched, all nearby Myriad Age Daoist Sect disciples must come and help. I recall that you ate one of Sect Master Heavenly Accesss beloved disciples, right? Furthermore, Sect Master Heavenly Access seems to be nearby! Xuan Du smiled coldly.
The Mosquito Daoists face twitched. However, he no longer showed any intention of helping.
Sect Master Heavenly Access is nearby? If he gets called here, wont it be over for me?
Never mind. Gu Hai, you have to deal with this yourself. I wont be getting involved with this problem, the Mosquito Daoist said bitterly.
Theres no need. You have already helped me. Gu Hai smiled.
As Gu Hai spoke, his pupils suddenly shrank. Then, they enlarged. Both pupils changed, and a terrifying aura came from them.
Huh? The Mosquito Daoist suddenly felt his hair stand on end as he looked at Gu Hai in shock and horror.
The countless officials in the surroundings fell to their knees with terrified expressions. Even the distant Xuan Du felt a sudden chill in his heart.
Gu Hais left eye gave off a white light, and his right eye gave off a black light. Xuan Du felt like he was facing Heavens eyes. At this moment, he even felt an urge to kneel.
Die! Xuan Du acted with both rationality and some frenzy. He waved, and eighteen sword lights swung down at Borderless Heavenly Capital.
Just the earlier sword had already felt like it could destroy the world. Now, there were eighteen. Even s.p.a.ce twisted.
Gu Hai raised his head, looking at the eighteen sword lights as his eyes gave off the strange lights. This time, he did not clash head-on, as the Supreme Ascendant Heartless Sword Formation seemed to have changed form in his eyes. He saw many black and white lines, a bizarre sight.
The Eyes of Life and Death.
In just an instant, Gu Hai saw the complete sword formation. At the same time, he found the critical spots.
As the formation moved, it was like a giant net falling toward Borderless Heavenly Capital. Furthermore, it had a black thread that kept twisting, maintaining a balance in the surroundings.
Gu Hai used only the Immortal Slaying Flying Saber this time.
Treasure, please turn around!
Controlled by Gu Hais will, the Immortal Slaying Flying Saber shot towards that black thread.
