Book 9 Chapter 75 - Seven Swords

White flowers of ice bloomed on the shining black armor one after another . Streaks of blood froze on the white crystals, the crimson color exceptionally distinct.

When the already blinded soul weapon heavy armored cultivator’s body blossomed with ice crystals, because of the cold that penetrated into his brain, he already quickly died. His heavy steel body, without the support of soul force, collapsed like a wall.

In that instant, Lin Xi clearly saw the streaks of blood, saw the locations where they were thickest.

Then, the longsword in his hands swept out without stopping in the slightest.

Both him and Gao Yanan were rushing towards the soul weapon heavy armor who lost his balance after exchanging a strike with Gao Yanan. At this time, his figure was extremely close to this soul weapon heavy armor, so his longsword naturally hacked towards it. Meanwhile, this soul weapon heavy armor who leaned forward because of the force that was transmitted through his heavy spear already controlled his center of gravity. When he saw Lin Xi’s sword hack over, this soul weapon heavy armor released a low roar, his entire body squatting lower, using his shoulder armor to face Lin Xi’s sword. The heavy spear in his hands was once more thrusted out viciously towards Lin Xi like a shooting star.

Lin Xi’s longsword landed on the back of this soul weapon heavy armor’s shoulder, but it felt as if it landed on a wet tile, sliding off. His entire figure twisted with a strange stance. The heavy spear thrust towards his waist, while his longsword sliced diagonally towards the underbelly of this soul weapon heavy armor.

That was his sword’s true objective right from the start.

There were metal grinding noises that sounded, but the sparks produced by the grinding of the sword and armor were instead completely washed away by the blood spraying out from inside the armor.

The cultivator inside this soul weapon heavy armor released a miserable howl. Lin Xi’s sword stabbed a whole foot into his underbelly, almost cutting through all of his underbelly’s intestines.

The pain from having his intestines cut through made him unable to maintain the steady flow of soul force. The heavy spear in his hands was pushed right against Lin Xi’s waist, as long as he exerted force, he could completely blast Lin Xi’s inner organs rotten. However, without the support of soul force, the heavy spear in his hands couldn’t make this horizontal motion at all.

Because of the instantaneous death of the soul weapon heavy armor that blossomed with countless ice flowers, the other two sets of soul weapon heavy armors were also extremely horrified, their bodies both becoming a bit sluggish. However, right now, when another companion was instantly seriously injured, these two soul weapon heavy armors released a vicious roar, leaping out. It was as if two standing black fish suddenly became two black turtles, smashing towards Lin Xi and Gao Yanan.

The weakest point of this type of black fish soul weapon heavy armor was the underbelly and the underarms. Right now, these two soul weapon heavy armors’ cultivators already understood that Lin Xi and Gao Yanan already deduced which areas were the weakest from the clear several dozen streaks of blood, determining that these places were the weakest areas of their armor. This type of armadillo attack precisely protected all of their body’s key areas.

However, these two soul weapon heavy armors made a fatal mistake from inexperience.

This type of strategy was naturally extremely effective for ordinary cultivators … However, they didn’t have time to react to the fact that Lin Xi and Gao Yanan weren’t normal cultivators.

Lucky, who had already learned many things from Gao Yanan and became quite good at fighting from the previous fight, reached out another claw.

A cold stream immediately took form in front of Lin Xi and its body, surging towards these two soul weapon heavy armors.

The air’s temperature immediately dropped, the cultivators within the two sets of soul weapon heavy armors also feeling endless chilliness. When they thought about the death of that first soul weapon heavy armored cultivator, these two soul weapon heavy armors subconsciously raised their hands, using the thick and broad round shields to block their eyes.

It was because just now, they both saw clearly that what truly caused that soul weapon heavy armored cultivator to die was the cold air that entered through his eyes. The instant he fell, that cultivator’s eyeballs were already frozen and cracked, countless fine frozen icicles extending from his eye sockets, extremely frightening.

Cold air smashed into the thick round shield flickering with shining green patterns, quickly turning into a white-colored frost shell.

These two soul weapon heavy armored cultivators’ eyes were protected. However, almost at the same time, the two cultivators realized that they already made a fatal mistake.

However, there was already no time for them to make any other movements.

Lin Xi and Gao Yanan’s movements were almost identical.

They took a step and then thrusted out with their swords!

The longswords in Lin Xi and Gao Yanan’s hands respectively stabbed into these two sets of soul weapon heavy armor’s underarms, stabbing through several layers of linked pieces, deeply entering the flesh under the heavy armor. Then, they both withdrew their swords at the same time, stepping back.

Two fountains of blood gushed out all over where these two were just standing.

The two sets of soul weapon heavy armors were just like the cultivator who just had his intestines hacked through, releasing miserable screams.

In reality, regardless of whether it was a cultivator who had his stomach stabbed through or the injuries these two cultivators suffered, for cultivators for their level, they still weren’t fatal injuries. As long as there were medicines and stitching equipment, they could completely be rescued. However, they were in soul weapon heavy armor. Before removing the soul weapon heavy armors, their giant steel fingers couldn’t carry out any type of effective treatment on themselves.

That was why they could only watch as their blood flowed out, spurting out from the gaps in their armor.

Lin Xi and Gao Yanan evaded, avoiding the two soul weapon heavy armors’ retaliation, and then quickly advanced, moving past these three soul weapon heavy armors.

Thud!

Behind these two, the first cultivator who had his intestines cut up fell heavily to the ground. He struggled on the ground, but could no longer get up.

Thud!

Thud!

The other two sets of soul weapon heavy armor only took two steps while roaring out, but they also staggered and then fell heavily.

That was why the remaining eight sets of soul weapon heavy armors’ expressions of mockery completely disappeared, now replaced with extreme shock and disbelief.

“Who is Grand Secretary Zhou to you?”

The leading soul weapon heavy armor didn’t even give any orders, only looking at Gao Yanan, his voice shaking as he asked this.

Gao Yanan looked at him. Before she even replied, a silver arrow already stabbed through that soul weapon heavy armor’s right eye socket.

This leading soul weapon heavy armor immediately fell to the ground.

Originally, with this leader’s cultivation, in this situation where only his eyes were exposed, he could still avoid the arrow even if there was a sudden ambush. Even if it was a sneak attack, he should still be able to avoid this arrow. However, these were clearly just two Soul Master level cultivators, yet they instantly cut down four sets of soul weapon heavy armors whose strength far exceeded Soul Master level. This type of scene was just too shocking, in that instant making this leader completely concentrate on Lin Xi and Gao Yanan’s body, resulting in Bian Linghan’s arrow piercing through his eye socket and entering his brain, a single arrow ending his life!

“Those who surrender will not be killed!”

Lin Xi and Gao Yanan quickly approached the remaining seven sets of soul weapon heavy armors. At this time, Lin Xi released a clear shout.

The remaining seven soul weapon heavy armors were first a bit sluggish, but after a breath of time, these seven sets of soul weapon heavy armors all released rumbling noises. The seven sets of soul weapon heavy armors were activated like lightning, their thick black armors all flickering with dazzling green brilliance.

Even though these cultivators could all see Lin Xi and Gao Yanan’s domineering strength, they still refused to believe it, refused to believe that all of these soul weapon heavy armors couldn’t cut down the enemy.

All of these soul weapon heavy armors lowered their bodies, starting to sprint towards Lin Xi and Gao Yanan.

When they first began to run crazily, these seven sets of soul weapon heavy armors all lowered their heads, their left arms vertically in front of their bodies, using their black round shields that were always flickering with green light to always block their eyes.

Lin Xi frowned.

He immediately sensed the difficulty in dealing with seven soul weapon heavy armors charging like this.

However, right at this time, Gao Yanan at his side suddenly stopped.

When Gao Yanan stopped, he also subconsciously stopped.

Gao Yanan raised her head.

Her cascading black hair scattered about, dancing in the wind, as if instantly producing fine ice blue crystals. It was as if they were countless runes engraved on glaciers, now floating over from them, drifting in the air.

Waves of biting cold chilliness suddenly spread on the ground in front of Lin Xi and herself. The originally smooth ground instantly began to freeze.

Lucky who was originally also thinking nervously about countermeasures also immediately understood.

Its claw also forcefully reached in that direction, pressing towards the ground.

A powerful cold stream rushed against the ground.

The seven sets of soul weapon heavy armor on the frozen path leading up to Lin Xi and Gao Yanan immediately became extremely rigid .

These seven sets of soul weapon heavy armors who were originally running extremely steadily suddenly couldn’t control their bodies. In a breath of time, all of them flew forward with all types of stances, this type of scene giving off quite the slapstick feeling.

If they were seven crazily running cultivators, even if they suddenly landed on frozen ice, they still wouldn’t fall so miserably.

However, these soul weapon heavy armors’ bodies were all extremely heavy, controlling their center of gravity alone requiring a certain level of technique. Moreover, these seven sets of soul weapon heavy armors all deliberately maintained a certain stance while charging. The instant their feet instantly froze, these soul weapon heavy armors still had to subconsciously maintain their original stance.

The result of this was that none of these seven soul weapon heavy armors could control themselves. All of them slipped and flew outwards.

The instant these seven sets of soul weapon heavy armors collapsed, Lin Xi charged outwards.

On the slippery ice, his body was instead nimble and steady, as if he was a water spider on a water surface.

The longsword in his hands quickly stabbed out seven times, each strike respectively hacking into a different soul weapon heavy armor.

His figure moved across the seven sets of soul weapon heavy armors forged from fine steel. Only when his body completely moved past these seven sets of soul weapon heavy armors, then did these seven sets of soul weapon heavy armors crash into each other, forming a large pile.

Miserable howls sounded one after another. A fountain of blood gushed out from every single soul weapon heavy armor’s body.

The pale faced Gao Yanan began to quickly back up, because she knew that the situation was already set, that she already didn’t have to make any more moves.

In the stretcher’s surroundings, even Jiang Xiaoyi who understood Lin Xi extremely well couldn’t help but take a deep breath.

He already knew that Lin Xi slowly became extremely strong, but at this time, he suddenly noticed that unknowingly when, Lin Xi already became even more confident, even more powerful than he thought.
