Transcending the Nine Heavens - Chapter 193 The End Of The Road!
Three thousand spear wielders shot out black streaks! They all shot it from various directions and angles with varying speeds. However, they were all shooting at the same target – the team of five that was rushing towards them!
Kong Shang Xin let out a deafening roar as he flew into the air. The tip of his feet pushed at the points of the first wave of spears and his body shot up into the air meeting the second wave of spears. The saber in his hand suddenly swung and he let out a roar and continued to rise even higher. The saber continued to flash as he swung it wildly. Before long, his body had risen a few hundred feet into the air!
Right after, he turned into a flash of light as he drew a strange bright arc. The back of his body flashed as he moved at an incredible speed, creating mysterious apparitions in the air. He flew across the air in a radiant glow, rushing right into the army of soldiers!
His saber flashed fiercely as if the sun had suddenly appeared! In the front military group, a wave of blood suddenly burst out!
Waves of blood continued to splash as Kong Shang Xin opened a path of blood within a blink of an eye, assisting his martial brothers!
Yin Wu Fa caught a spear and rushed up in a frenzy despite his body being struck by three to four arrows.
Out of the remaining three, Old Sa was the first to rush up in the midst of the onslaught of arrows and spears. Behind him was a seventh grade Revered Martial Artist who was following him closely. Together with Yin Wu Fa, they created a small path as they broke out!
However, the last person, a fourth grade Revered Martial Artist, was one step too slow. At that moment, endless arrows shot toward him. He let out a breath which was the last breath of his life.
Spears flew forth like deadly lightning bolts and pinned him into the ground. The shower of spears and arrows then turned his entire body into minced meat in the blink of an eye!
Arrows continued to fly tirelessly, and spears also shot forth endlessly!
Yin Wu Fa and company were surrounded less than fifty feet away from the encirclement!
Looking at the dangerous situation that they were in, Yin Wu Fa screamed in anger and flew up into the air. He started to shoot out recklessly. Many were tossed out by him in the process as limps continued to fly through the air. A cold light streak which appeared as white as snow suddenly appeared by Yin Wu Fa’s side!
“Follow me!” Kong Shang Xin’s voice had become hoarse. Without stopping, he immediately turned bringing Yin Wu Fa and company with him, and brazenly rushed into the battlefront!
The shower of arrows and spears continued to rain forth. Soldiers screamed out, “Kill!” and rushed in from all directions like a rising tide.
“Close range combat!” Chu Yang immediately ordered.
“Minister, how about we wait for a little while before engaging them again? The auras of the two King level leaders are still extremely strong. Let the soldiers tire them out and after which, our martial experts will put in all their effort to secure us our victory!”
These words from the Revered Martial Artist from the prince’s manor made Chu Yang furious; he smacked him hard in the face and yelled, “Bastard! Aren’t we wasting their strength? We are paying the lives of soldiers in order to do so! Do you consider the lives of the soldiers inferior to yours? Rush in now! If you are the least bit slow, I will take the heads of all nine generations of your family!”
On the side, Cheng Zi Ang let out a crazed roar and led the martial experts of Bu Tian Pavilion in a fierce charge.
“Everyone rush in! As martial experts, it is time for you assume a little more burden!” Chu Yang screamed, “Let’s give our brothers a better chance at survival!”
The battleground had turned into a massacre as the air smelled of blood. Kong Shang Xin and Yin Wu Fa fought viciously. Two King level leaders and two high ranking Revered Martial Artists were demonstrating their great combat strength and struck fear into the hearts of everyone there!
Even though they were severely injured, and hit with countless arrows and spears, they possessed an unbelievable strength and refused to fall as they continued to fight!
Out of desperation, they had managed to fight their way out for about five hundred feet from where they started!
A steady wave of troops continued to charge at them.
A pitiful scream was heard, then the eighth grade Revered Martial Artist suddenly cried out in terror. A soldier had just dropped the body of his friend. With red eyes, he had screamed out and jumped up. Without a care for his own life, he held on tightly to the body of his friend! Holding him was the equivalent to holding a saber – death to their foes!
A saber flashed and the arm of this soldier was sent flying. However, he stubbornly held on to this eighth grade Revered Martial Artist with his remaining arm and fiercely bit him with his teeth!
“Aaah…” This Revered Martial Artist cried out, and the soldier flew out in fragments. The time that this soldier had held on to him was as shorter than a blink of an eye.
Under normal circumstances, this small time window would have been negligible. However, this was not so as they were currently surrounded by a large army with dozens of blades waiting to engage with him…
At the very moment he pushed out that soldier, seven or eight other soldiers simultaneously leapt up with ferocious faces and blades in hand! From the back, spear wielders also thrust up fiercely!
This Revered Martial Artist screamed out once; despite using all of his strength to dodge the attacks, he still ended up getting stabbed in the stomach!
The fact that he was able to make it this far was no mean feat. He was physically drained and no longer had any more energy to dodge the attacks of the enemies! He grabbed the spear which penetrated through his stomach with his left hand and with a cry, he moved to stab the spear wielder with the saber that he was holding!
The saber flashed and dropped. His right hand severed from the body as it flew out. He screamed as his left hand was gripped tightly around the soldier’s neck. However, at the very same time, eight or nine sabers slashed at him simultaneously. In the thick of the fight, he was still managed to break the neck of four soldiers. Even before their bodies touched the ground, dozens of other soldiers rushed forward, screaming out in madness.
One slash, his left hand fell off.
One slash, his right leg fell off! He tumbled to the ground. One of the soldiers immediately took hold of the spear still in his stomach and twisted. With a loud scream, he lifted the Revered Martial Artist up in the air.
“Kill…!” Countless sabers and swords arrived at the same time, and his flesh flew…
There were still three intruders remaining!
Kong Shang Xin looked at King of Hell Chu, who was a dark figure who was watching over the battle, with a crazed expression. He ground his teeth together hatefully.
The opponent still had not made a move!
All he needed was for King of Hell Chu to make a move. With his strength and that of Yin Wu Fa, they would be entirely capable of taking down King of Hell Chu. After which, they would continue to fight as they retreated. The defeat or even captivity of the leader would cause the army to be afraid to retaliate or launch assaults on them, causing them to think twice before acting!
However, King of Hell Chu never moved; this made them lose their greatest chance of survival!
Everywhere around Kong Shang Xin, bodies lined the ground. At a glance, there were a few hundred! There was also a small bloody path in the distance, also part of Kong Shang Xin’s handiwork.
After fighting for such a long time with his injuries not entirely healed, Kong Shang Xin felt his vision begin to blur and his strength slowly waning. In this state, Kong Shang Xin suddenly felt his imminent death!
I won’t be able to hold on much longer!
Could this be the end?
Kong Shang Xin was unwilling to accept any of them. How could I die like this? How is it I would die so easily?
Suddenly, he crazily slashed his saber one hundred seventy-seven times nonstop. In four directions, fifty people screamed out at the same time. He yelled out one word, “No!”
Yin Wu Fa’s entire body was soaked in blood; upon hearing that shout, he yelled out, “Second brother!”
His condition was not looking good. If it wasn’t for Old Sa who was by his side, it was likely that he would have been slaughtered or caught by the attacks of the enemy a long time ago!
“Old Sa!” Kong Shang Xin roared once more.
Old Sa yelled loudly, “I am here!”
“I am here!”
“I am still alive!”
The three people yelled loudly as if their very existence gave them the greatest strength…
In a distance, Chu Yang’s face paled, “Something is amiss! Give orders for everyone to stay alert!”
The signal horn sounded, and the people fighting immediately retreated; a new group of soldiers rushed up…
“These two King level masters are truly admirable men!” Ji Mo praised as he stood next to Chu Yang.
“Yes!” Chu Yang attentively watched the battle. However, at the same time, his arms continued to wave various flag signals. He said in a serious tone, “It is too unfortunate that they are our enemies!”
“Too bad!” Ji Mo said regretfully.
The moment Ji Mo said “too bad,” the battle suddenly changed.
“Come closer!” Kong Shang Xin loud shout shook up the night sky.
“Okay!” Yin Wu Fa and Old Sa yelled out in unison. The battle circle seemed to move with them; It was as though the screaming and fighting were controlled by them, as all of them turned to the direction of Kong Shang Xin…
“Don’t let them get close to each other!” Chu Yang yelled out! He could feel that the moment those three came together, some crazy would going to happen!
Cheng Zi Ang roared from within the battle; as if he no longer wanted to live, he led his subordinates as they confronted them in order to keep them separate.
The crowd on the other side was turned upside down as Kong Shang Xin killed his way towards his comrades like a demented tiger! Wherever he went, blood spurted. The ground where he walked through was dyed crimson by blood which continued to squirt out brightly from all the dead bodies. It was as if this Sad Saber King leader was using some scarlet fireworks!
The entire battleground was like a nightmare! Everything seemed too horrifying to have been real…
Before this, everyone thought that Chu Yang was making a big deal out of nothing. Dealing with a few people by mobilising almost a hundred thousand soldiers!
However, now, everyone was shaken by the fighting force of these individuals. Are they even humans?
Surrounded by almost a hundred thousand soldiers and under the pressure of five thousand archers, and they were still able to kill so many people. The number of casualties were startling!
If so many soldiers were not mobilized at the same time or if only half of them were there, these people would probably have already escaped!
All of the soldiers mobilised were the most heroic in the military, but the moment they rushed up, they were dealt with in a single breath! Even the Martial Warriors and Martial Masters only lasted a little bit longer before they became corpses!
However, it was reported that their enemies had been severely injured!
If they weren’t injured… The thought of this made the commanding officials shiver!
The distance between Kong Shang Xin and Yin Wu Fa was only fifty or sixty feet now! However, under Chu Yang’s command, this distance became a heavenly moat as it was filled with most of the martial experts!
Even if Kong Shang Xin was not injured, his success was not guaranteed if he had rushed into this space.
Kong Shang Xin let out a shrill laughter. His eyes flashed brightly. An aura of determination suddenly emanated from his body. His arm swung the shadowless saber up and the blade unexpectedly shined brighter than the stars in the night sky!
