The fox demon Xiao Wei was naturally breathtaking. And when she waltzed into the palanquin, clothes flirting with the wind and with that devastatingly beautiful face, one could not help but be moved.
Only her face was now distant, and that inspired fear.
Fox demon Xiao Wei was different from the Ninth Spirit. The Ninth Spirit often kept herself under wraps, preferring to keep an air of mystery about her. But this fox demon Xiao Wei was lust incarnate. The look that she fixed Wu Yu with was a direct and intense sign that she was going to eat Wu Yu.
Hearing her words, Wu Yu finally responded. His galvanizations had only triggered her greed. She wanted to “savor” him before the Ninth Spirit did.
Since this fox demon Xiao Wei was willing to take such a risk, he must’ve been of great use to her as well.
Her motive was very clear!
Perhaps it had not been Wu Yu's stimulations, but she already had such designs on him planned.
"You're not afraid that the Ninth Spirit will destroy you when she returns?" Wu Yu continued to back up as he threatened her.
Xiao Wei laughed lightly, covering her red lips. "By the time Ninth Spirit returns, I'll be flying high above."
To her, there was no time to lose.
"The Ninth Spirit actually left you behind to guard me. How foolish."
"That's true. But all these days, I have chafed under her hand, but I have never done anything overboard. It's only natural for her to trust me." Xiao Wei's beautiful face and serpent-like hips swayed towards Wu Yu. He could vaguely make out the six fox tails behind her. The snowy white tails bobbed energetically, inviting one to reach out and play with them.
Wu Yu smiled. She was treating him like a soft persimmon. A treasure to be snatched.
Fox demon Xiao Wei's only method was charm. Only through her charms could she easily devour Wu Yu, and then leave stealthily.
She approached Wu Yu, beginning to employ her charming demon techniques.
Wu Yu was consumed by a vortex of lust. The woman before him swayed lithely like the wind. Her skin was as fair as snow and jade. Her trim figure and full legs cut an entrancing figure, and his heart seemed to throb along to the bob of her six fox tails.
Those bright eyes spoke volumes. Each twitch, each bat of the eye tugged at his soul. Anyone would be lost in those eyes, oblivious to the world as their consciousness shrank until it was nothing but a violent lust.
This was the third fox demon that Wu Yu had encountered. She was stronger than Qian Er, but not as strong as the Ninth Spirit.
If he resisted with the Inner Vajra Buddha Sutra, he could not fight her at the same time. After all, chanting the sutras induced his body into a wounded state.
He could only use Visualizing the Inner Ape to silently resist her. The Unparalleled Monkey King in his heart was like a bright lamp that illuminated his world and mitigated the fox demon's charms.
The good thing was that his spiritual power was robust, and his mind sufficiently strong. Coupled with Visualizing the Inner Ape, he could barely resist Xiao Wei's fox demon charms.
However, Wu Yu still affected a completely infatuated expression!
He would beat her at her own game!
Faking a completely bewitched expression, his face was flushed as he grinned evilly. He actually closed on the fox demon Xiao Wei. They were like dry tinder set ablaze. Under the fox demon's exhortations, they were on the verge of falling to the down-covered floor for some horizontal wrestling.
"Fixed Body Art."
Suddenly, Wu Yu's eyes lit up. The Ground Demon Transformation Art that he had prepared for so long, an ultimate move from the 72 Transformations.
The fox demon Xiao Wei had thought that she had him in hand, and was carelessly arrogant. But suddenly, she could not move a muscle. Suddenly, Wu Yu's hand flashed out. His finger had shifted to become a sword blade, and it drew across the fox demon's neck. Fresh blood spurted into the air!
Even though the Fixed Body Art was successful, she was still three spiritual power levels higher than he was, which meant he could only hold her for an instant. Wu Yu had used this to slit her throat, an inch away from beheading her.
"Time to go!"
His sword had gravely wounded her. This was a rare opportunity. Without another word, Wu Yu used the Art of Sword Control to summon the Demon Subduing Staff that was nearby, and he rushed out of the palanquin.
"Nine Dragons Ascension Column, When Nine Become One!"
In a flurry of dao techniques, his staff smashed the palanquin door to smithereens, opening a huge door. Wu Yu rushed out without a word, pulling out the Onyx & Pearl Dao Sword from his Sumeru Pouch as he went. He rose into the skies, taking off on his sword!
"Don't think you can run!"
The fox demon howled in pain, rushing out from the palanquin.
Everyone outside had been watching the action around the 10,000 Swords Formation. At the huge sound, they turned back to see Wu Yu shoot for the clouds, while the fox demon Xiao Wei was fallen on the ground!
"Wu Yu's escaped!"
Instantly, a ruckus blew up.
Over at the Zhongyuan Dao Sect side, a few elders at the ninth tier of the Qi Condensation Realm had not participated in battle. They mounted their Pegasi, yelling as they chased him.
But by this time, Wu Yu had already soared into the clouds.
"This Ninth Spirit underestimated me. She actually returned the confiscated Onyx & Pearl Dao Sword to me. Does she think I'm nothing at all?"
That was normal as well. After all, the Ninth Spirit was a 1,000-year demon with a Yaodan. Even though Wu Yu had defeated Mo Xiudao, that counted for nothing.
With the Yin Yang Sword Wheel, his Art of Sword Flight sped him along like the wind. Ordinary Pegasi could not catch him at all!
"So many eighth tiers Qi Condensation enemies. Luckily, I managed to lure the fox demon in and take her down with a combination of guile and the Fixed Body Art! Otherwise, I would have been hard pressed to make a break for it."
If not for this, the slightest delay caused by the fox demon would have seen Wu Yu surrounded by all these eighth tier Qi Condensation enemies the moment he burst out of the palanquin door.
And now he was like a bird out of his cage. He spread his wings and flew!
Wu Yu immediately saw the direction of the Bipo Mountain Range.
At this time, with the 10,000 Swords Formation and the Disorienting Mist Formation, it was hard to see what was happening in the Bipo Mountain Range. Wu Yu still flew on, on his sword, headed straight for the Bipo Mountain Range!
With many eighth tiers Qi Condensation cultivators in hot pursuit, he rushed into the 10,000 Swords Formation.
He dared to, but his pursuers did not.
Just as he entered the 10,000 Swords Formation, Wu Yu felt a hair-raising chill.
It was as though he was prey walking into a trap.
Hidden swords and blades in all directions!
This was the first time he was witnessing the prowess of their defensive formation!
It was like facing an army alone!
Instantly, cold light flashed at him from all directions. Countless sword blades came stinging through the air. Wu Yu was about to be turned into a beehive!
"Master, it's me! Wu Yu!"
In danger, Wu Yu desperately yelled.
He strenuously dug into his energy to make his voice echo clearly, in order not to be hit by friendly fire.
Instantly, all the sword qi vanished.
The danger had vanished in an instant.
The view before him cleared, and Wu Yu pressed forward on his sword. Although he was not practiced, he was still speedy. He flew on deeper into the Bipo Mountain Range. Evidently, both the 10,000 Swords Formation and the Disorienting Mist Formation were not employed against him.
Before long, he had rushed out of the sword formation, and what was before him should have been the Stone Gate of a Thousand Swords. But Wu Yu discovered that the Stone Gate of a Thousand Swords seemed to be different from how it was. Now, the pillars seemed to have changed positions. They were arranged in an orderly line formation. Each pillar had become an exceptionally sharp sword blade!
Casting his gaze out, there were thousands of stone swords!
And the spaces between the stone swords were connected by spiritual power. They formed a kaleidoscope of colors, and Wu Yu was currently held there.
He realized that people were standing on nine of the stone swords. They were Feng Xueya, Lan Huayi, the Five Elders, the Elder of Enforcement, and the Elder of Imparting Arts.
"This must be the 10,000 Swords Formation!" The first time he saw the formation, Wu Yu was thunderstruck with awe even if though was a fashioned design and not a true ancient design.
He did not know that these nine elders on the 10,000 Swords Formation were actually even more thunderstruck than he was.
"Wu Yu, how did you learn the Art of Sword Flight!?" Feng Xueya was on a nearby stone sword.
"Respected Master, I have cultivated to the fifth tier of the Qi Condensation Realm and absorbed that immortal root called the Yin Yang Sword Wheel. It not only allowed me to enter the sword dao, but also allowed me to use the Art of Sword Flight earlier." Finally back safely, Wu Yu breathed a sigh of relief.
The nine elders all showed their happiness on their faces.
They were still supporting the 10,000 Swords Formation, and Wu Yu was extremely interested. He quickly told them his tale since his kidnapping, and then explained how he had returned safely.
Feng Xueya and the others did not question him too much, only bidding Wu Yu head back to the Bipo Mountain Range.
"It must be Ninth Spirit and the others still assaulting the 10,000 Swords Formation, and they need all their concentration!" Wu Yu therefore backed down. He knew that his own safe return must have eased Feng Xueya and the others' hearts, and filled them with joy.
He raised his head to observe. The 10,000 Swords Formation was like a half-eggshell that completely covered the Bipo Mountain Range. One could see the sword qi flying back and forth in the 10,000 Swords Formation through the thick mist. Evidently, these nine strong elders were fighting with the enemy.
"Once the 10,000 Swords Formation is broken, the battle fire we bring will be slowed. It will mean the doom of a majority of the disciples!"
Due to the heavy assault by the opponent, the entire Bipo Mountain Range was caged in gloomy mist. Almost everyone watched the 10,000 Swords Formation, trembling and praying for it to hold. Up till now, all the pressure had been endured by Feng Xueya and the others.
"10,000 Swords Formation.... A pity that I can't be of any use!" Wu Yu felt his blood boil as he looked back at Feng Xueya and the others expending all their spiritual power, maintaining the 10,000 Swords Formation to their death.
All that remained for the Heavenly Sword Sect was war!
Not far behind the Stone Gate of a Thousand Swords, many disciples were anxiously gathered. And when Wu Yu left the Stone Gate of a Thousand Swords, he saw many familiar faces here, including Su Yanli, Qing Mang, Lan Shuiyue, Mo Shishu, etc....
And seeing Wu Yu now was completely out of their expectations.
In a trice, they had swarmed him.
Seeing their eyes red with emotion, Wu Yu felt a warm feeling in his heart. That such a group of people were actually concerned about his life - that in itself was a form of happiness.
Even if he died in battle, it would be worth it!Previous Chapter Next Chapter
