Strongest Martial God - Chapter 76
Chapter 76 – Crushing Blow
Translator: Seventh Peril Editor: Anuvrat
The crimson blood mixed with the Spiritual Qi of Heaven and Earth and strangely floated above Lua Long’s body. At a glance, it seemed to be a blood-red light film covering Lua Long’s skin.
As the faint light barrier appeared, an extremely peculiar and terrifying aura spread out from within his body, causing one’s expression to change slightly.
“This is… Luo Long is going to use his ace in the hole! “
“Could it be that move?”
The surrounding disciples of the Xingxiang Sect were all stunned for a moment before they sucked in a breath of cold air. They never thought that in less than a cup of tea’s time, this Luo Long was about to use his hidden trump card. It looked like Ye Zhong’s action had forced him into a very difficult situation!
As Luo Long clenched his teeth and changed his hand-seal, the blood-coloured light film that appeared on the surface of his body swiftly changed its shape. Finally, his fingers curled into talons of the sinister scaled dragon. An extremely sharp aura that radiated from the talons made people’s eyes hurt.
“Devil Flood Dragon’s Claw!”
Along with a low chant, Luo Long reached out with his right claw hand. Immediately, the evil flood dragon’s sharp claws turned into a stream of blood-red light as it charged forward ferociously.
Under countless gazes, the blood-red light streaked across the sky, colliding with the incoming primeval dragon elephant and trying to suppress it.
“Break for me!”
Lua Long’s hoarse and mournful roar rang out. After which, the devil flood dragon’s sharp claws became as large as the primeval dragon elephant. Following this, the two attacks crazily clashed. It was an extremely spectacular sight.
“I said, you, can’t!”
Ye Zhong’s expression was indifferent, unaffected by Luo Long’s terrifying attack. He slowly lifted his right hand and tapped the air with his finger once again.
“*Whizz— Whizz— Whizz—*”
The starry sky behind the primeval dragon elephant started to spin rapidly, turning into a black hole. Then, from the depths of the black hole, a gigantic crimson figure emerged, like a giant meteor, directly carrying a terrifying and incomparable might, whistling downward.
“*Bang— Bang— Bang—*”
Accompanied by the whistling sound of the crimson comet, the primeval dragon elephant also moved through the sky. In an instant, the cracks appeared on the sharp claws of the flood dragon that was summoned by Luo Long as the two powerful attacks interweaved.
Looking at Ye Zhong’s unstoppable attack, Luo Long’s eyes were filled with shock. He gritted his teeth and struck his chest with his palm. In that instant, a large mouthful of essence blood was spat out. However, when the blood essence sprayed out, he didn’t even have time to use it and it had already turned into water vapor from the violent attacks.
In the next moment, the primeval dragon elephant and the crimson comet converged together. With an extremely overbearing posture, they tore apart the devil flood dragon’s sharp claws and fiercely landed on Luo Long’s chest.
Under the earth-shattering attacks, all of the defenses on the surface of Luo Long’s body lost their effect. The blood-red light barrier instantly crumbled, before his chest caved in and his body viciously flung backward. After struggling to get up, Luo Long’s figure was shaken and he spat out a mouthful of blood.
At this moment, Luo Long’s clothes were torn and his hair was dishevelled. His face was pale as he looked forward. The dragon elephant and the starry sky had already slowly disappeared. However, the unstoppable scene just now had caused his body to tremble slightly. It had also shattered his pride.
It was an absolute suppression in terms of strength, allowing him to understand that he was no match for Ye Zhong.
Countless disciples of the Xingxiang Sect who were attentively watching the fight on the side-line quietly gasped one after another. Their eyes were filled with disbelief. Even the Inner Disciples who were watching in the distance were dumbstruck. They couldn’t react for a short period upon seeing the outcome of the battle.
Luo Long was only half a step away from reaching the Sixth Layer of Body Tempering, yet he was defeated? Moreover, did he lose to a disciple who had just stepped into the Fifth Layer of Body Tempering?
This time, the defeat of Luo Long was completely different from that of Lu Fan. Although Lu Fan’s defeat was beyond the expectations of many people, it was not to the point that would cause anyone to be surprised.
However, this defeat of Luo Long caused quite some people to instantly turn silent. If they did not see it with their own eyes, who would believe it?
“Humph, this fellow is indeed not easy to deal with!”
In a distant location, it was unknown when Su Xuan was standing on a tall building as he gazed at the scene. A cold light flashed across his eyes. After returning to the Xingxiang Sect, as the direct descendant of the Su Clan of the Five Great Clans, he naturally already knew about what had happened in Jiangzhou City. Originally, he was prepared to take action and deal with this fellow who dared to offend the Su Clan. But from the looks of it, it was a good thing that he was cautious. Ye Zhong was not that easy to deal with.
“He is even more difficult to deal with now…”
The corners of Song Shaochen’s eyes twitched as he looked in the direction of the battle and nodded his head. Although his strength seemed weaker than that of Luo Long, he was not afraid of him. However, he was surprised that Ye Zhong could deal with Luo Long so easily without paying any repercussions.
That day in the Innate Temple, the fact that Ye Zhong could kill Mo Fanlong was beyond everyone’s expectation. However, Mo Fanlong was severely injured, to begin with, and Ye Zhong must have used some sort of mysterious skill to kill him in one move. Upon reaching this conclusion, Song Shaochen and the others were wary of Ye Zhong, but they did not pay much attention to him. However, the power Ye Zhong displayed today had caused them to take him seriously.
“It’s only been a month since he came to the Xingxiang Sect, so how he got his hands on the Secret Art of Empyrean Xingxiang Finger was not the most important thing but instead how he cultivated it to this extent in a short month, this Ye Zhong is not easy to deal with, or perhaps it should be said to be extremely troublesome…”
In the distance, the youth in blue attire standing together with Rong Tian thoughtfully spoke.
“What, you can’t hold it in? Do you want to probe him yourself?” Rong Tian gave a faint smile.
“Heh, there are already plenty of people who want to test him, so it is not my turn to do so. However, we can see whether our new Junior Brother here will continue his rise in power or be doomed to die shortly… You must know that our Xingxiang Sect is not as calm as outsiders thought of it to be!” The youth in blue attire pondered for a moment and then gently smiled. Even though it seemed that he didn’t take his own words seriously, his eyes had already become extremely serious.
At this moment, at the front of the courtyard, Wang Mo had also regained his senses. A joyous expression surfaced in his eyes. The abilities displayed by Ye Zhong right now had surprised him even more than the last time. He was utterly convinced of his friend’s capabilities.
On the scene, Ye Zhong gently waved his hand, and the starry sky dissipated. A sense of exhaustion filled his body.
The power of the Empyrean Xingxiang Finger was somewhat beyond Ye Zhong’s imagination, although the Spirit-rank Secret Art itself could borrow the Spiritual Qi of Heaven and Earth for its use. But this Empyrean Xingxiang Finger was not an ordinary mid-grade Spirit-rank Secret Arts, its power should be infinitely close to that of the high-grade Spirit-rank Secret Arts, and he was very satisfied with its power.
Based on his comprehension of the Secret Art from the past life, he didn’t need to spend too much time cultivating the Empyrean Xingxiang Finger. He was able to see through the essence of it with a single glance and directly cultivated it to the level of ‘one with the Secret Art’. Otherwise, no matter how strong the Empyrean Xingxiang Finger was, it wouldn’t be this powerful.
After successfully cultivating, Luo Long had actually delivered himself to his doorstep to try out the move. He truly was a good person.
Thinking of that, Ye Zhong smiled at the livid Luo Long who was tottering on the verge of collapse, and the smile on his face grew even wider.
Although Ye Zhong was smiling, his eyes were ice-cold. Luo Long shuddered subconsciously and gritted his teeth, “Brat, you’re impressive this time. Just wait and see!”
With Luo Long’s status, although he was in a sorry state right now, he absolutely couldn’t back down on his words.
“Wait and see?” Ye Zhong looked at him in amusement, his narrowed eyes making Luo Long feel uneasy.
“What else do you want?” Luo Long gritted his teeth as his eyelids twitched.
“Didn’t Lu Fan tell you?” Ye Zhong smiled, his expression was extremely playful. “And as I said just now, have you brought enough Spirit Value?”
“You!” Luo Long’s complexion turned cold as he shouted out. Although he had lost, he still had the strength to fight back. However, he did not expect Ye Zhong to treat him as a piece of trash like Lu Fan and even wanted to extort his Spirit Value?
Ye Zhong remained indifferent, and a strong wind shot out from his fingertip, directly grazing Luo Long’s ears and cutting off a strand of his hair.
“Although I can’t kill you, I can still cripple you. I think the Xingxiang Sect didn’t prohibit this… Cultivating is easy, but reaching the Body Tempering of Sixth Layer is not easy, don’t you think so?”
“Moreover, if I don’t recognize your identity, wouldn’t I be letting you down? You are Lua Long, the Rank 4 Outer Disciple, aren’t you? The cost of your status can’t possibly be cheaper than that trash, Lu Fan, right?”
“You bast*rd!” Luo Long’s face turned red as he growled, “Ye Zhong, don’t think of me as trash like Lu Fan. Do you think you can survive in the Xingxiang Sect by doing this?”
“That day, Lu Fan also threatened me just like this.” Ye Zhong smiled and did not waste any more words. He stepped forward, ready to cripple the fellow in front of him.
Luo Long’s expression changed wildly. Seeing this extremely stubborn fellow in front of him, he finally clenched his teeth and threw out the Spirit Value Token in his hand. This time, he had really lost a lot of face.
