Strongest Martial God - Chapter 88
Chapter 88 – The Man in Blood Red
Editor: Seventh Peril
Numerous blood figures whizzed down from the sky, causing the entire place to be filled with a very strong blood scent.
Hao Feng and the other two constantly jumped into the air. Every time they landed on the ground; a Blood Phantom would also fall down to the ground, like a dead bird.
However, looking at these Blood Phantoms, Ye Zhong’s frown deepened. Their Blood Qi was incredibly dense, and they were indeed the purest of Blood Phantoms. However, their combat style was extremely monotonous. They relied on their speed to charge recklessly. Such tactics were totally different from the Blood Phantoms of the Three Thousand God Realms that Ye Zhong knew of.
If it was said that the intelligence of the Blood Phantom Race in the Three Thousand God Realms was not inferior to that of humans, then these Blood Phantoms were no different from puppets. They didn’t have any thoughts of their own; they were nothing more than mere killing machines.
“Don’t tell me that they aren’t Blood Phantoms? Or perhaps there is the hierarchy within the Blood Phantom Race. These Blood Phantoms are only of the lowest rank. They’re just like ordinary Monster beasts, without even a bit of intelligence?”
Ye Zhong stared at the whizzing blood shadows and mumbled to himself. The next moment, he took a step and his body flashed. The Kongming Sword appeared in his right hand and a sword glow shot out.
“*Swish— Swish— Swish—*”
Following the flickering of the streaks of sword glow, the nearest dozen Blood Phantoms were all cut in half by Ye Zhong. In just a split-second, Ye Zhong had killed more Blood Phantoms than Hao Feng and the other two.
This scene surprised Hao Feng and the rest. They had seen a lot of Ye Zhong’s skills in the past few days, so they did not say much.
“Something is not right. You three, guard Senior Sister Ling Yue. I will be right back!”
Ye Zhong took care of more than a dozen or so Blood Phantoms, and his eyes fell on a certain direction, it was filled with sand and dust, as far as the eye can see. He squinted his eyes, and with a stomp of his feet, he disappeared in a flash.
Hearing Ye Zhong’s words, Hao Feng and the rest understood that Ye Zhong must have discovered something. They waved their hands and gathered before the crevice where Ling Yue was hiding, fending off the incoming attacks from the Blood Phantoms.
Ye Zhong shuttled through the boundless desert, his eyes narrowing as he surveyed the surroundings. Apparently, the Blood Phantom chasing after them had a mastermind, and this mastermind must have some extraordinary skills. He did not let the Blood Phantoms swarm in a mess, but rather prepared to slowly grind Ye Zhong and his party to death.
As if sensing Ye Zhong’s movement, the sound of several Blood Phantoms roaring was heard, and powerful attacks instantly covered Ye Zhong’s body, aiming at his vitals.
However, Ye Zhong’s expression did not change in the face of this kind of encirclement attack. The Kongming Sword in his hand flashed, and the sword glow instantly shot out.
The green sword glow flashed, the Blood Phantoms had fallen to the ground, one after another. Obviously, they could not even dodge Ye Zhong’s attacks.
Ye Zhong’s skills were so sharp to the point that even any expert of the same level could never imagine.
After finishing more than a dozen Blood Phantoms, Ye Zhong landed before one of the corpses and examined it carefully.
A moment later, Ye Zhong lifted his head, surprise appeared in his eyes.
Ye Zhong’s guess was not wrong. The consciousness of these Blood Phantoms had all been erased by someone’s great Divine Power. This was definitely not something an ordinary expert could do. Even amongst the Martial Innate Realm experts, including the Spirit Energy Boundary, the Spirit Core Boundary, and the Divine Power Boundary, only the Divine Power Boundary experts could do this.
After affirming the fact that there was a Divine Power Boundary expert behind the Xue Yuan Dynasty, Ye Zhong’s eyes flashed with a serious glint.
One must know that in the Great Zhou Dynasty, Ye Zhong reckoned that the Spirit Energy Boundary expert was already considered to be at the pinnacle of cultivation. So, this Divine Power Boundary expert was simply unimaginable! The strength of the Xue Yuan Dynasty should be comparable to that of the Great Zhou Dynasty, how could there be such a powerful expert who manipulated the Xue Yuan Dynasty behind the scenes?
After some thought, Ye Zhong managed to suppress his shock. Regardless of the conspiracy behind the Xue Yuan Dynasty, one thing was certain, as a Divine Power Boundary expert, there was no way that he would personally lead these mindless Blood Phantoms, to kill them who were like ants to him.
“I want to see what kind of people that Xue Xin sent to kill us!”
With a cold laugh, Ye Zhong shot forward, heading deeper into the desert.
Along the way, Ye Zhong encountered many more Blood Phantoms. However, even the strongest of these Blood Phantoms was only at the Fourth Layer of Body Tempering Realm. To Ye Zhong, these Blood Phantoms that had only empty strength and speed posed no threat at all. That was why when he attacked, he showed no mercy. Along the way, at least one hundred Blood Phantoms were killed by him.
As Ye Zhong went deeper and deeper into the desert, it seemed that the person controlling these Blood Phantoms behind the scenes was aware of his presence, and immediately he began to notice that more and more Blood Phantoms were coming towards his direction.
The Shura Sword Seal appeared on the Kongming Sword in Ye Zhong’s hand, and the speed of the sword was increased. After killing the 157th Blood Phantom, Ye Zhong’s body lightened, and he landed on the side of an oasis.
Ye Zhong landed lightly on the green grass, then raised his head to look at a small lake before him. At that moment, there was a man in a blood-red robe sitting quietly at the side of the lake. His dusky eyes with faint bloodshot pupils, gazing coldly at Ye Zhong, who had appeared right in front of him.
“Not the Blood Phantom….”
Ye Zhong looked at the man in blood red and frowned slightly. Even though this person’s Blood Qi was extremely dense, he was not a Blood Phantom. It was likely because he cultivated some Spiritual Secret Art of Body Tempering related to Blood Phantoms, so the Blood Qi on his body had become this rich.
“You have some ability to discover this place. No wonder our Young Lord wanted you dead.”
The man in blood red stared coldly at Ye Zhong, fear and killing intent flashing in his eyes at the same time. The next moment, he waved his sleeve, and a whistling sound of wind broke out as a blood red wind blade swept towards Ye Zhong.
“Sixth Layer of Body Tempering Realm!?”
Sensing the power contained within the attack, Ye Zhong was also slightly surprised. This person should be either Xue Xin’s personal general or servant, but his abilities were beyond Ye Zhong’s imagination.
However, Ye Zhong did not back off even in the face of such an attack. Five-Layered Shura Sword Seal instantly overlapped on his fist, and with a punch, the Shura Sword Seal clashed fiercely with the wind blade.
The surrounding ground shook, and countless grains of sand turned into a clay dragon, circling in the sky. The wind blades, on the other hand, had already been blown apart by Ye Zhong’s punch.
The man’s face was grim as he pointed his finger at Ye Zhong. Immediately, the clay dragon was infused with a trace of Blood Qi, charging towards Ye Zhong.
“*Bang— Bang— Bang—*”
Ye Zhong did not move, the Shura Sword Seal at the peak of his fist flickered with a dim light, and he punched out with his fist. With each punch, he disintegrated the clay dragon into powder.
“Your tempered fleshly body is quite strong!” As the man in blood red saw this, surprise appeared in his eyes, but he didn’t say anything unnecessary. Instead, the seal on his hands changed, and a pair of three-meter-long bat-like wings suddenly grew on his back.
“Blood Phantom Shadow!”
Following his gesture, his figure instantly divided into several blood shadows, whistling towards Ye Zhong. Even Ye Zhong could not tell which shadow was real at the moment.
“Although he isn’t a member of the Blood Phantom Race, the Spiritual Secret Arts he’s been cultivating are all that of the Blood Phantom Race! There is something strange about this Xue Yuan Dynasty!”
Ye Zhong’s eyes narrowed, and in the next moment, he clapped his hands together, and Six-Layered Shura Sword Seal appeared, along with his gesture, striking towards the multiple blood shadows.
With a muffled sound, several blood shadows vanished simultaneously, leaving only the last one. Ye Zhong held the Kongming Sword in his hand and sent out an astounding sword glow instantly.
“High-grade Spirit Vessel!?”
When the man in blood red saw the sword light whistling towards him, his expression instantly turned extremely ugly. He clearly understood how powerful the high-grade Spirit Vessel was. Immediately, he clenched his fist, streams of Blood Qi gathered from the ground and formed a huge blood spear in his hand.
The blood spear trembled slightly. And then, it clashed directly against that enormous sword glow.
With a muffled sound, the sword glow and the blood spear shattered at the same time.
The eyes of the man in blood red were dark and cold. His body swayed slightly as a trace of blood appeared on the corner of his mouth. Clearly, he had suffered a little loss from the exchange earlier.
Ye Zhong’s eyes narrowed slightly. He did not show mercy just now, but he did not expect the man in the blood-red robe to be able to block his attack.
This Xue Yuan Dynasty expert was indeed not simple. In the Xingxiang Sect, unless it was an Inner Disciple, very few would be his match. Even if it was an Inner Disciple, there were probably not many who could defeat him.
“Not bad, you actually managed to injure me, Xue Si! However, there is a road to Heaven you don’t want to take, there is no door to Hell yet you insist on breaking in.” The man in blood red who had called himself Xue Si lifted his head slightly. His exceptionally pale face looked extremely ferocious at this moment.
Ye Zhong frowned slightly. The next moment, the Secret Art of Six Grave Swords began to circulate rapidly within his body. It seemed that it would be impossible to solve the problem before him without showing some of his true ability.
