Chapter 456: 456
Chapter 456: The Fallen Spirit Beast (3)
“It took nearly a hundred years to purify him. As per his friend’s words, all he had to do was return to his original state and climb up. But… it all looks unreasonable now.”
It was Ark Wui who had given up a hundred years of his life.
However, the hatred and resentment inside the White Tiger didn’t weaken but instead grew.
Its appearance now is much closer to the form it took a hundred years ago, and the hatred inside it was all being directed to the Jianghu.
“The guy who threw off the shackles created by the oath returned to his own body, which will stain the entire place in blood. Just like the six-headed dragon spirit which almost annihilated the entire Jianghu region during the days of the Three Sovereigns and Five Emperors.”
Spirit beasts who have reached the highest point would be dangerous and difficult to kill.
The only opportunity to kill him would be when he cannot take his original form even after 100 years.
In a bitter voice, Ark Wui asked Chun Yeowun.
“… this is the calling that was originally for me, but if it doesn’t work, kill him with your hands.”
It was unclear if Ark Wui would be able to kill the beast or not.
Judging that he might fail due to his injured right arm, he asked Chun Yeowun.
“You won’t regret it?”
“I was holding onto him with affection and cause. But now it won’t be possible, and I can’t let innocent people of Jianghu get killed.”
Ark Wui’s words were resolute.
He didn’t care about the deaths of the warriors or the leaders.
However, he didn’t like the idea of innocent people getting killed.
‘You are a true friend.’
Chun Yeowun admired Ark Wui’s intentions.
He seemed a lot better than the warriors of the Forces of Justice who advocate justice.
Such a person was the one warriors respected.
“Understood. I’ll hurry up and return your favor.”
Chun Yeowun’s words made Ark Wui wonder.
Ark Wui had hurt his right arm, his body was out of balance, and he wasn’t able to speed up either.
Even if he punched the air, he doubted that it would be with his full force. What could he even do?
It was then.
Something began to generate from Chun Yeowun’s body, and it turned into black armor.
Ark Wui’s eyes widened at it.
It shouldn’t have been a big deal, but he was just shocked to see Chun Yeowun suddenly wear armor which even covered his face.
“I’m going ahead.”
White smoke appeared from the feet of the armor, and he was pushed into the air.
“What was that?”
Ark Wui was stunned as he looked at Chun Yeowun.
Chun Yeowun, who flew towards the peak at once, saw someone competing with the giant black tiger.
He was someone who was able to make full use of his abilities and focused energy at one point, just like the God of the East.
Moreover, this man could freeze the lake in an instant.
It must have been the one who absorbed the core of the Great Bird.
‘Is that person the head of the Blade God Six Martial Clan?’
Chun Yeowun remembered the words that his grandfather spoke.
He said that the Blade Lord, the head of the clan, had gone to the Potala palace with all his forces to obtain the core of the Great Bird.
In the meantime, the man Chun Yeowun was so curious about had finally appeared.
And he somehow aimed for the fallen White Tiger.
‘What is he aiming for? Nano. Find the place where the core of the black tiger is concentrated.’
Nano began to analyze it in augmented reality.
When a cross-shaped target was painted on its chest.
[A lot of energy is concentrated in the thorax that goes down the black tiger’s neck.]
There was no way he could lose the core of the White Tiger.
And it was a great opportunity as the Blade Lord was weakened by the blow.
‘If I intervene in the middle, I wouldn’t be able to do this or that, and I’d get caught between the spirit beast and the Blade Lord.’
There was a simple way to do that.
First, he had to take the core of the White Tiger.
It would make the Blade God Six Martial Clan angry if they who had been aiming for the core and fighting against the black tiger all this time saw the core enter Chun Yeowun’s hands.
It wasn’t just because its chest was hit, but the black tiger, which had been hit near its core, twisted its body and cried out.
Since the core, where all its spiritual energy is gathered, was being taken away, perhaps it was the same as destroying a martial artist’s dantian.
‘This should be better than letting those people take it away.’
Chun Yeowun looked at the core, which was emitting a brilliant light.
Just a touch, and he could feel its great energy.
Seeing Chun Yeowun float in the air, Hwang-heol, who was initially bewildered, yelled in anger.
“Demon God! Isn’t that something you should be ashamed of? Only cowardly people do things like pickpocketing!”
Unlike him, the former Lords on either side were different.
The fact that he broke into the middle of the fight and took the core was infuriating, but the overwhelming energy they felt was petrifying.
‘The power of that blow was terrifying.’
Even their Blade Lord had failed to penetrate the tiger’s body despite connecting on several blows.
However, the Demon God, Chun Yeowun, made a hole in the chest with just a single blow, even if it was a surprise attack.
“He’s more of a monster than I’ve heard.”
“Huh. He can’t be dealt with without the Blade Lord. It makes sense for the Six Martial Masters to keep losing.”
Hwang-heol frowned at the words of the former Lords, who were supposed to be the best in the clan.
Even if Chun Yeowun was a monster, the core shouldn’t fall into his hands.
“Even so, we need to kill him here. According to the records left behind by ‘that person’, this must…”
Before Hwang-heol could finish speaking, the warriors shouted.
“The Blade Lord has come! Woah!!!”
Suddenly, the Blade Lord appeared in the air in front of Chun Yeowun.
The Blade Lord, whose bamboo hat got torn, was revealed to be a middle-aged man with a short beard.
And a horrible expression showing how angry he was.
Blade Lord pretended to swing his hand.
Then, in front of him, invisible energy gathered, giving off a sharp feel, and it moved with the momentum to cut Chun Yeowun in half.
However, it couldn’t cut him.
It was blocked by an invisible sword that emerged in the air.
However, in the aftermath of the collision between the invisible swords, pressure threw some people, while others had to get out of their vicinity.
“Everyone, keep your distance!”
The aftermath of it was trees and the grass on the ground being uprooted.
So this was how dangerous a battlefield would be when two people of the highest level would fight.
The warriors of the Blade God Six Martial Clan all moved away at once.
The Blade Lord opened his mouth.
“Demon God. Hand over the core.”
His gaze was on the core, which was in Chun Yeowun’s left hand.
Maybe it was because he lost what he was aiming for. He had a grim expression.
However, Chun Yeowun said something weird.
“You… who are you?”
The Blade Lord raised his eyebrows, puzzled by what was asked.
At his level, he thought that Chun Yeowun would naturally recognize his existence and title.
“I’m the current head, who stands at the apex.”
Blade Lord moved forward, maintaining his invisible sword, and tried to attack Chun Yeowun.
It was the fifth form of the Extreme Art of the Blade God.
Normally he was someone who would unfold a technique with the sleekest movement, but now he didn’t want to follow up the technique.
Chow chow chow chow!
Invisible sharp attacks came for Chun Yeowun.
At that, Chun Yeowun slightly moved.
It was then, his invisible sword created a dense sword net, blocking the form of the Extreme Art of the Blade God.
“Don’t use what you stole!”
Suddenly, the Blade Lord appeared from behind.
It was an illusion skill of some kind.
And he aimed for Chun Yeowun’s left arm, which was holding the core.
Chun Yeowun’s actions were,
The Blade Lord frowned as he looked at what he was aiming for with his sword.
He didn’t expect the core to be used as a defense by Chun Yeowun.
If the core got damaged in any other way than being absorbed, all its energy would be drained, and the core becomes useless.
“Then I’ll cut off your head!”
The sword turned and aimed for Chun Yeowun’s neck.
As soon as the sword was about to touch his neck, the Blade Lord jumped back.
As soon as he moved, a blue ray of light fell to the ground where he was previously standing.
It looked like a steel sword.
He wondered if someone other than Chun Yeowun was present and threw the sword at him. However, the ice sword covered in a blue hue floated in the air.
“An Air Sword made of steel-like-ice?”
The Blade Lord was shocked.
He too had attained yin and the core of the Great Bird.
So, making an ice sword wasn’t a difficult task, but no matter how much he concentrated, the sword didn’t last long.
“Truly amazing. It’s been twenty years since I met a warrior like you.”
He was truly amazed.
With all reports he got about the Demon God, he knew that the man was strong.
However, he considered himself superior, but now Chun Yeowun was a much more difficult opponent than he had expected.
“Then I can’t lose the core!”
The Blade Lord raised his yin.
Their entire surroundings became so cold that frost began to appear on the ground. Even the raindrops froze and fell to the ground.
Drop! Cha! Cha! Cha!
“Even if I can’t work with sword qi, I can use this!”
The raindrops which froze all aimed for Chun Yeowun.
However, the numerous frozen raindrops that aimed to hit Chun Yeowun stopped mid-air, making the Blade Lord frown.
“Did you erase my qi?”
Chun Yeowun raised his hand and stretched it towards the Blade Lord.
The ice drops and the cubes, which had stopped mid-air, turned around, heading towards the Blade Lord.
‘How is this possible?’
The Blade Lord jumped to a higher position.
Yet, all the frozen ice followed him.
‘Is he manipulating the ice?’
No matter how strong this man was, there had to be a limit to what we could do, and what Chun Yeowun was doing wasn’t simple.
However, Chun Yeowun was controlling everything.
“But, it’s just ice.”
The Blade Lord created a huge invisible wall that broke the ice.
“Indeed, fighting against the Demon God is truly meaningl…”
The Blade Lord, who was talking, went silent.
While he was busy taking down the frozen rain around him, numerous ice swords covered in a blue hue surrounded him.
Chun Yeowun spoke with a smile.
“The Sky Flash isn’t just a wide area technique.”
As soon as he finished speaking, the blue hue began to shine brighter, and the numerous ice swords which surrounded him rushed towards him.
The eyes of the Blade Lord shuddered as he saw the Ice Swords coming in from all directions without gaps.
The Blade Lord’s face distorted as he began to concentrate on what was happening.
He decided to unify his energy.
As if space was distorted, ripples rose around him, and numerous beams of light rushed towards him and were sucked into him, disappearing.
“… this is how it’s stopped.”
Chun Yeowun was shocked at Blade Lord’s technique.
He didn’t seem much different from Ark Wui.
Rather, this man was more difficult to deal with as he had absorbed the core of the Great Bird and could take in ice qi.
“Is, is that even a confrontation between humans?”
“This is my first time seeing such a battle.”
The two former Lords, who were watching the confrontation between the two lords, couldn’t hide their astonishment.
It was impossible to keep their calm as they were witnessing such a high-level battle.
“Woah, they are total monsters.”
“The Blade Lord is being pushed like that?”
The same was true for the other warriors.
The two people who were fighting in the air were so great that they couldn’t take their eyes off of them.
However, there was one variable in their confrontation.
The huge black tiger, which roared again, shattered their eardrums.
Losing the core from its body, everyone thought that it would fall to the ground, but it only became angrier than before, raring with blazing red eyes.
The Blade Lord frowned at that too.
The one whom the black tiger was staring at intently was Chun Yeowun, who held its core.
‘How didn’t he die?’
He was skeptical, but he decided to deal with the most important task.
The black tiger swung its huge front paw and tried to hit both Chun Yeowun and the Blade Lord at the same time.
It was that moment when the two of them were about to move away simultaneously.
The huge body of the black tiger, which was about to swing its front paw, fell under great pressure and bent its knees as it crashed into the frozen lake.
As the massive tiger suddenly fell in, the ice shards bounced in all directions.
Wondering what was happening, there was a figure between the eyes of the giant tiger, with his fist clenched.
“God of the East!”
