Chapter 839 – Azure Winged Vampire Bat

Outside Crimson Swallow City.

Pu!

The Talisman Armament in Chen Xi’s hand swept out, causing a cold light to appear abruptly before it carried a string of blood flying along with it, and at his side, over 10 Cosmos Beasts were slashed into two and died on the spot.

His figure flashed to avoid the sneak attack of a Cosmos Beast, and he was just about to swing his sword to kill it. Right at this moment, his brows suddenly knit together, and he didn’t hesitate in the slightest to transform into a wisp of flowing light that retreated explosively in a successive manner for over 3km in distance.

Hiss! Hiss!

After Chen Xi finished doing all this, a black mist suddenly floated into his field of vision and at the place he was standing earlier, and it corroded a horrifying pitch black hole in that expanse of space. 

If he had dodged a bit later, the consequences would be unimaginable!

Chen Xi’s eyes narrowed as a wisp of a chilly sheen flashed within them. His gaze swept out and locked onto a palm sized bat that had eyes that were crimson red like blood and a pair of azure wings.

An Azure Winged Vampire Bat!

This was a demon beast with an extremely ferocious and sinister disposition, and it thirsted madly for blood. During the primeval times, the Azure Winged Vampire Bat Clan was a renowned existence that had once sucked the blood of a god.

In this chaotic battlefield, this palm sized Azure Winged Vampire Bat was extremely inconspicuous and was hiding in the shadows, so if it wasn’t for Chen Xi detecting it, he would have almost been taken by surprise.

Swoosh!

Without the slightest hesitation, Chen Xi’s Talisman Armament soared through the sky like a shocking streak that tore through the sky as it slashed towards the Azure Winged Vampire Bat. Moreover, he’d faintly already sensed the identity of this bat.

Swish!

The bat flashed and directly tore space open to execute teleportation, causing it to instantly vanish without a trace. This scene undoubtedly proved that its cultivation was at least at the Earthly Immortal Realm!

But Chen Xi seemed to have expected this scene a long time ago, and the Eye of Divine Truth flowed with a jet black light as it swept the surrounding space, and he instantly noticed the tracks of the bat.

In the next moment, Chen Xi had transformed into a wisp of flowing light that pursued the bat.

The two of them, one fleeing while the other pursued, and they quickly left the area of the battlefield to arrive above a desolate expanse of wilderness.

“Hehe, you have balls. Unfortunately, it’s boldness without wisdom, and you deserve to die!” Space shook as the bat appeared before it transformed into a gaunt figure, an old woman that wore black clothes.

She held a vulture headed cane, had a gloomy and wretched appearance, and her entire body was suffused with strands of black colored devilish qi that flowed endlessly.  She was precisely Thousand Fortune Granny.

“You’re quite bold yourself.” The vertical eye between Chen Xi’s brows swept the surroundings, and he noticed that this wasn’t an ambush that was planned beforehand, causing him to relax completely.

“Little kid, Granny really dislikes it when you act so stubbornly before death.” Thousand Fortune Granny said gloomily, “Unfortunately, you and your companion are bound to die this time!”

Chen Xi’s eyes focused when he heard this. “You’re speaking about Wen Tianxiao?”

Thousand Fortune Granny’s face that was gaunt like the skin of an air dried mandaring orange revealed a wisp of hatred. “Exactly, a debt of blood must be repaid with blood. You wouldn’t have forgotten the Blacksoul Gang that died because of you, right?”

Chen Xi’s browsed raised as he said, “So you’re standing up for the Blacksoul Gang?”

Thousand Fortune Granny shook her head and sneered. “The Blacksoul Gang is nothing. If it wasn’t out of consideration for the Luo Clan, I couldn’t be bothered to pay attention to this matter.”

When she spoke up to here, her monster-like eyes spun as she grinned while looking at Chen Xi, and then she licked her mouth and said, “Of course, it’s also because your vital blood is so tempting. Granny can’t resist from wanting to have a taste.”

“Unfortunately, you’ll probably be unable to drink it in your entire lifetime…” Chen Xi’s voice was still drifting through the air when he’d already vanished on the spot. In the next moment, a peerlessly dazzling sword light erupted within the pitch black night sky, and it enveloped down at Thousand Fortune Granny.

Rumble!

The sword light hadn’t arrived before her when a vast and powerful sword howl resounded out throughout the heavens and the earth, and it was like the shout of a Fiendgod or the chanting of the gods. The might of this strike was terrifying to the extreme.

Hmm? Thousand Fortune Granny’s pupils constricted as she noticed that this strike was formidable. She swung the vulture headed cane in her hand, causing devilish qi to surge like a roaring dragon from hell as it moved to meet the sword strike head on.

Her cultivation at the 5th level of the Earthly Immortal Realm caused her to be extremely confident of her own strength and especially when her opponent was only a little kid at the Nether Transformation Realm, because she’d killed countless nobodies like this in the past.

But to her surprise, when she saw Chen Xi the last time, he was clearly a body refiner with seething vital blood that carried traces of the aura of the Dao. Yet now, he executed abilities of a qi refiner. Moreover, his vital blood seemed to have lost that aura that caused her to covet it to the extreme…

Bang!

However, before she could figure out the reason, a strand of terrifying force had surged over, and it caused her entire body to be blasted out uncontrollably by over 100m while the vital blood in her entire body roiled without end.

What strong force!

Thousand Fortune Granny was horrified, and she felt slight disbelief. Is this a force that a little kid at the Nether Transformation Realm should possess?

Swoosh!

Another vast Sword Insight slashed down like the axe that split the world apart.

This was the Creation Sword Insight combined with Chen Xi’s cultivation in the Sword Dao of ‘Sword Light Dispersion.’ It looked to be a simple sword strike without any variations, but it had already attained the state of turning the ordinary into extraordinary a long time ago.

Thousand Fortune Granny suddenly noticed that all the various abilities of hers that she took pride in seemed to have lost their efficacy before this sword strike, and besides meeting it head on, she didn’t have any other method to avoid this attack.

She naturally wouldn’t go head on with Chen Xi because the terrifying force of the previous sword strike had left a deep impression in her mind, and she’d decided to wait and see if she could get a clear understanding of this kid’s ability.

The tip of Thousand Fortune Granny’s leg tapped the air as she retreated swiftly.

A faint cold smile appeared on the corners of Chen Xi’s mouth. Before his move had completely dissipated, he raised the Talisman Armament while pursuing with large strides, and he slashed out once more.

This sword strike was even vaster than the previous one, and it contained the profundities of the Myriad Netherwave Palm. He’d accumulated the might of his sword strikes like successive waves that overlapped with each other before being slashed out with the Creation Sword Insight. The might of this sword technique was sufficient to annihilate both Yin and Yang and crush the world, and it carried an all-powerful and fierce aura.

Thousand Fortune Granny’s expression was unsightly while the tip of her feet that were tapping on midair raised, causing her to spin in a beautiful arc in midair, and she dodged to the side while still avoiding colliding head on with Chen Xi.

She’d already discerned that this kid’s strength was extremely strange, and he seemed to be only at the Nether Transformation Realm in cultivation, but his true combat strength was absolutely not so simple.

Chen Xi suddenly let out a long howl as his movements grew in speed. He was like an Emperor of the Dao of the Sword. His body surged with divine radiances while his sword moves raged through the sky like peerless waterfalls, and he was matchlessly bold, powerful, and resolute in slaughter. Moreover, his attacks surged towards Thousand Fortune Granny like a tide.

Instantly, both of them were locked in fierce battle. But the strange thing was that they didn’t collide head on from the beginning until the end. Thousand Fortune Granny was like a little boat that had fallen into an expanse of tempestuous waves, and not only was she unable to charge through the waves, she was moving along with the waves, causing it to become more and more difficult for her to dodge.

Under Chen Xi’s attacks, she was actually unable to find space to launch a counterattack!

This caused her expression to finally go grim because she noticed that the situation was bad. Originally, she just intended to probe his ability, yet never had she imagined that she would be like a worm that had fallen into the web of a spider and fall deeper and deeper.

Thousand Fortune Granny didn’t hesitate any longer. She gritted her teeth as a jet black devilish glow shot into the sky from her body, and she was like a savage and bloodthirsty ferocious beast that had gone berserk beneath the veil of the night. She swung the vulture headed cane out because she’d finally intended to counterattack.

Bang!

The two of them collided. Thousand Fortune Granny let out a muffled groan while her face went completely pale as she staggered back.

On the other hand, Chen Xi seemed to have not been affected in the slightest, and he strode forward with large strides once again. He moved through the air like a shocking dragon that had left its lair, and the Talisman Armament in his right hand swung out like a blade that could plough through the sky as it slashed down at her!

This sword strike actually carried the terrifying rumbling of the Grand Dao, and it was deafening like the resonant rings of a bell. This was the manifestation of his strength erupting after being overlapped and accumulated to the limit.

At the critical moment of life and death, Thousand Fortune Granny completely gave up any thoughts of being lucky, and she decided to put her life on the line and utilize her trump card that she’d hadn’t been willing to utilize all along.

Om!

Glows of blood that were like circles of ripples suddenly surged out into the surroundings of Thousand Fortune Granny’s body, and then two snow white and sharp fangs suddenly stuck out from her mouth, causing her appearance to change greatly. She became savage, sinister, and her entire body was enveloped in a surging mist of blood.

Instantly, the aura she emanated threw the heavens and the earth into disorder, shattered space, and even the ground to seem as if it was unable to withstand this heavy burden, causing countless narrow and long rifts that were like spider webs to split open.

This was the ultimate technique of the Azure Winged Vampire Bat Clan, the ‘Rage of Bloodthirst.’ During the primeval times, the ancestor of the Azure Winged Vampire Bat Clan had relied on this technique to instantly suck the blood of a god dry, causing the god to transform into a withered corpse.

However, right at the moment she was about to attack, a palm suddenly stretched out from behind her and grabbed onto her neck, and then it raised her like a little chick before smashing her gaunt figure into the ground with a bang.

Pu!

Instantly, Thousand Fortune Granny’s ‘Rage of Bloodthirst’ hadn’t been executed when she was smashed into the ground like a dead dog. Her entire face was covered in blood, her nose had collapsed while her mouth had split apart, and her appearance was completely distorted. Moreover, a mouthful of blood even sprayed from her mouth.

Never had she imagined that she would actually be taken by surprise from behind at this most critical moment in the battle, and she didn’t even notice the existence of this person in the slightest!

This caused her to be astounded, and she forcefully endured the violent pain in her entire body to turn her head. Instantly, she noticed an unbelievable scene. Another Chen Xi had actually appeared in the battlefield!

One wore green clothes, was upright, and revealed an extraordinary bearing.

One wore an apricot yellow Daoist robe and possessed seething vital blood.

Besides this, their appearances seemed as if it was carved from the same mold, and there wasn’t a trace of difference!

This…

Thousand Fortune Granny’s eyes narrowed as a strange thought flashed within her mind. Could it be that these two fellows are twins?

This thought became the final thought before her death as well. In the next moment, she was annihilated by a sword strike, and she let out a shrill cry like that of a boar being slaughtered as she died on the spot.

Without using the Godslaughter Burst, so long as my main body cooperated with my clone, it’s sufficient for me to slaughter experts at the fifth level of the Earthly Immortal Realm… Chen Xi put away his clone and didn’t hesitate any longer to transform into a wisp of flowing light that flashed towards the battlefield.

The conversation with Thousand Fortune Granny earlier caused his heart to constrict as he clearly knew that it wasn’t only he who’d suffered a surprise attack, and Wen Tianxiao had probably fallen into a dangerous situation as well.

It was precisely because of this that he’d exerted his entire strength since the battle began to end it as soon as possible. So he didn’t hesitate to directly utilize his clone and had utterly no intention of bitterly wasting time with Thousand Fortune Granny.

Bastard, you better not die! Otherwise, who will return the debt you owe me?

Chen Xi took a deep breath and tried his best to restrain the bad premonition in his heart while his figure flashed beneath the pitch black veil of the night.
