Chapter 0879: You Dare Kill Me
The arrow madly converged the surrounding killing power, forming a powerful whirlpool. From a distance, it felt as if the more the killing power of the arrow came together, the more terrifying its momentum became. At the same time, the arrow also grew faint with each passing moment.
The thin man had already broken free from Ning Cheng’s Laws of Time; however, his face sported a hideous snarl. Only he knew that Ning Cheng’s arrow that sucked up the seemingly infinite killing intent wasn’t a threat to him at all. The real danger was the Spiritual Consciousness Chop that had reached his Sea of Consciousness. He quickly understood that it was the result of a genuine spiritual consciousness cultivation method. If he couldn’t resist it, at least for as long as a breath, this Spiritual Consciousness Chop would destroy his Sea of Consciousness.
The thin man opened his mouth and spat out a bloody arrow; at the same time, the aura of dao charm continued to spill out from his body. In his Sea of Consciousness, another more powerful wave of spiritual consciousness force swept over that managed to stall Ning Cheng’s Spiritual Consciousness Chop for the time being. The moment Ning Cheng’s Spiritual Consciousness Chop met the spiritual consciousness force wave. It forced the two to retreat immediately. Ning Cheng found it challenging to bear the backlash and spat out a mouthful of blood.
Feeling his Spiritual Consciousness Chop suppressed, Ning Cheng immediately understood that things had taken a turn for the worse. This thin man in front of him was quite an extraordinary veteran expert. Even when Ning Cheng used the Spiritual Consciousness Chop and under the influence of the Laws of Time, it still couldn’t kill this fellow. Ning Cheng also understood that as long as this person managed to drive out his Spiritual Consciousness Chop, he would die.
Besides, there was still the Ninth Prince lurking somewhere around him. It meant that even if he used the pre-prepared Entrapment Array Discs, it wouldn’t be of much use. This thin man wouldn’t have much problem in breaking through it with brute force. Moreover, the last exchange also proved that this person was even stronger than Hong Lun and even the Ninth Prince.
The Spiritual Consciousness Chop entirely relied on the support provided by Ning Cheng’s Sea of Consciousness. However, Ning Cheng didn’t dare to burn his spiritual consciousness recklessly. He had to save energy to deal with the Ninth Prince.
The fake Five-coloured Star Splitter Arrow continued to gather momentum. But neither Ning Cheng nor the thin man cared about it at this moment. Even if this arrow shot out, it wouldn’t have much effect. The gathering of killing power was nothing more than a superficial phenomenon.
“Puff…..” Something inside pushed the Spiritual Consciousness Chop back by another step. Ning Cheng spat out another mouthful of blood, this time black.
However, at the exact moment, a shadow appeared within the range of Ning Cheng’s spiritual consciousness. It immediately turned Ning Cheng’s heart even more gloomy. He understood that the Ninth Prince had finally appeared.
He must never let Man Jiuren know about his current situation, and he definitely couldn’t let Man Jiuren take action.
Ning Cheng understood that he no longer had any choice. How could he care about other things if he didn’t have a life? Once Ning Cheng lost his little life, everything would become meaningless, utterly ethereal. Seeing that this thin man was about to expel his Spiritual Consciousness Chop, Ning Cheng had no choice but to use the Dark Nether Spirit Devourer.
Spiritual Consciousness; devour it for me!
A series of black whirlpools invisible to the naked eye suddenly formed within the thin man’s Sea of Consciousness. The thin man immediately felt that his spiritual consciousness, which almost managed to gain the upper hand on the situation, suddenly got swallowed up by something and suddenly disappeared. Sensing the Spiritual Consciousness Chop about to break free from his blockade, the thin man immediately turned anxious. He quickly tried to agitate his spiritual consciousness once again.
But the moment the newly formed spiritual consciousness blasted out, those black vortexes once again swallowed it up instantly.
“It’s that vicious Dark Nether Spirit Devourer…..” The thin man opened his mouth and wanted to scream, but the Spiritual Consciousness Chop had already severed his voice.
The moment the Spiritual Consciousness Chop broke free from the shackles within the thin man’s Sea of Consciousness, it sliced through everything in its path like a hot knife through butter. The next moment, blood oozed out of the thin man’s seven orifices, and even his Sea of Consciousness collapsed. Simultaneously, as the chop sliced into the thin man’s Sea of Consciousness, Ning Cheng fell weakly to the ground, while the arrow in Ning Cheng’s hand quickly shot out.
The space between the two lit up with colourful lights before everything turned colourless. Only the killing power remained within the area. Rather, it would be more accurate to say that it was a false illusion of killing power that came from the body of the thin man who had already collapsed.
“Bang…..” The thin man’s head split apart, and the Five-coloured Star Splitter Arrow also disappeared without a trace.
Ning Cheng grabbed the thin man’s ring, slumped onto the ground, and swallowed several medicinal pills. There wasn’t any need to pretend. His face had already turned pale from the exertion, and even after swallowing that strong spiritual consciousness, Ning Cheng felt weak. However, Ning Cheng understood as long as these strands remained in his Sea of Consciousness, it wouldn’t be a blessing but a curse.
From the Dark Nether Devouring Spirit Scroll records, he absolutely couldn’t refine these spiritual consciousness strands and use them as his own. Once he did this, he could never go back. It would be akin to taking narcotic drugs. As long as his body refined it once, there would be a second time and a third time……
But whether a blessing or a curse, these strands of spiritual consciousness still had some uses in the current situation. Man Jiuren had walked over unhurriedly. He looked at the thin man lying on the ground, killed, and head split open by Ning Cheng’s Spiritual Consciousness Chop and showed a broad smile. “Ning Cheng, you truly are the first genius I have ever seen till now. With a puny middle-stage Eternal cultivation, you managed to kill Ding Xia, who had already reached half-step Dao Sculpting Realm. But I wonder if you can shoot another of those arrows? Kinda makes me curious, you know.”
“Do you want my Five-coloured Star Splitter Arrow?” Ning Cheng slowly stood up, and a black arrow appeared in his hand.
Man Jiuren felt confident that Ning Cheng couldn’t shoot a second Five-coloured Star Splitter Arrow. But his pupils still shrank to the size of pinpricks when he saw the black arrow in Ning Cheng’s hand.
“Apart from that Five-coloured Star Splitter Arrow, there is also the Life Force Plate. If I guessed it correctly, my Life Force Plate should be in your hands. Ning Cheng, I truly appreciate your abilities. If you surrender your spiritual soul and sign a servant contract with me, I can spare you this one time.” The Ninth Prince spoke with a cold tone.
If not for the aura of the Life Force Plate coming from Ning Cheng, Man Jiuren would have already started. At this time, his domain had fully locked onto Ning Cheng. Plus, he could also feel that Ning Cheng was in a truly weakened state.
Ning Cheng quickly understood a few things from this. No wonder Man Jiuren endured it till now. From the looks of it, this Life Force Plate wasn’t truly his weapon, and Man Jiuren most likely kept it hidden from his father.
No matter Man Jiuren’s reason, Ning Cheng also understood that he couldn’t stay here and chat for long. Besides, against Man Jiuren, he had no choice but to use the Five-coloured Star Splitter Arrow. Know that using the arrow would immediately weaken him further, Ning Cheng didn’t hesitate to stimulate his spiritual consciousness and celestial essence.
The black arrow started hovering in front of Ning Cheng. A five-coloured longbow started to form and gradually overlap with it. The grey aura of death quickly spread out, and the killing power that permeated the surroundings began to move the winds and clouds. At this moment, the world around the arrow started to lose colour; simultaneously, everything started to lose its dominance over life.
The aura of death, the horrifying killing intent, the killing power permeating the space….
As everything ‘slowly’ came together, it formed into a swirling void that then condensed into a grey point containing an unimaginable aura of death.
The moment the Five-coloured Star Splitter Arrow activated, Man Jiuren couldn’t move anymore, as the arrow had entirely suppressed him. But even if he could move, he did not dare and could only stare at Ning Cheng in horror.
“How? How can you shoot a second arrow? It’s not possible……” Man Jiuren muttered to himself in a hoarse tone. His gaze not only contained madness but also fear. Even if Ning Cheng was a heaven-defying genius, he shouldn’t have the capability of shooting two of those arrows in the Eternal Realm.
The first time when he faced the Five-coloured Star Splitter Arrow, he only escaped because of a substitute. But this time, he didn’t have a replacement. If he died here, it would truly mean the end of him, Man Jiuren.
Ning Cheng felt neither sorrow nor joy. However, his celestial essence and spiritual consciousness had now fully locked on to Man Jiuren. Since he could kill Man Jiuren once before, he could kill him a second time.
Man Jiuren’s domain started to collapse inch-by-inch. All the pieces got swept into the grey-coloured killing intent oozing from the Five-coloured Star Splitter Arrow. At the same time, Ning Cheng’s hair also started to turn white and his face pale.
As for the black arrow, it’s colour also started to fade into nothingness. At the same time, the multicoloured bow superimposed on it grew more and more colourful. Even the grey aura of death kept growing stronger….
This grey killing intent was fundamentally different from the previous grey killing intent. If the previous one only had a shape, this one had real substance.
“I understand….” Man Jiuren’s eyes had already turned red. He finally understood that the arrow Ning Cheng used previously was a fake. Ning Cheng had a fake Five-coloured Star Splitter Arrow, which meant that Ning Cheng already knew that he would come looking for him. It also meant that Ning Cheng created that fake arrow to lure him into a trap.
“You can’t kill me; put down your arrow…..” Despite knowing that Ning Cheng couldn’t put down the arrow, Man Jiuren still screamed out in madness.
If his body collapsed this time, he no longer would be able to rise again. He absolutely cannot accept it. He wanted to control the entire Barbarian Dragon Clan; he wanted to become the top powerhouse in the whole Grand Essence Realm…..
“Crack….” The Five-coloured Star Splitter Arrow split the clouds and forced them to disperse in an instant the moment the aura of death surged out.
Despair rose in Man Jiuren’s heart. The moment just before the arrow tore into his body, his essence spirit abandoned the body and escaped at speed countless times faster than a light shadow.
Ning Cheng had just spewed out a mouthful of blood when he heard Man Jiuren’s essence spirit cry out, “Ning Cheng, you dare place an Essence Spirit Trapping Formation. You dare kill me…. you…..”
How could Ning Cheng care about Man Jiuren’s threat? After escaping from Man Jiuren almost at the inch of his life every time, Ning Cheng had already made ample preparations. This fellow could run from Pan Qian; how could Ning Cheng not keep an eye out for it. It’s the reason why he set up a concealed Essence Spirit Trap Formation.
A strand of Celestial River Flame shot out and quickly burned Man Jiuren’s spirit soul into nothingness.
Unfortunately, he couldn’t grab Man Jiuren’s ring. Killing that thin man had already exhausted him, which meant that he no longer had the strength to salvage Man Jiuren’s ring. He could only watch the ring shatter to pieces with Man Jiuren’s body.
Half an incense stick worth of time later, Ning Cheng could no longer stand straight due to exhaustion after the two back-to-back fights. He could only call out Chasing Bull and let Chasing Bull carry him away from this place immediately.
The Grand Essence Mystic Realm’s opening was the biggest thing for all the sects within the Grand Essence Domain. But as the Dragon Emperor of the Barbarian Dragon Clan, Man Huishan decided to stay in the Grand Essence Ruins. The Five-coloured Star Splitter Arrow was just too important to him. If he had this arrow, then even without becoming a Second Step Dao Fusion Holy Emperor, such experts would have to fear him.
The Barbarian Dragon Clan looked glamorous on the surface, but he knew it full well that the clan was already in decline. Nobody knew about it better than him. Without Man Suotian as a deterrent for other sects, the Barbarian Dragon Clan would have already ceased to exist. Moreover, over the countless years, the Barbarian Dragon Clan couldn’t produce any worthy heirs, to the point that except for Man Suotian, no one else in the clan had become a Dao Fusion Holy Emperor or even come close to becoming one. Even he remained stuck in the Dao Essence Realm for more than a hundred thousand years without the slightest improvement.
Moreover, Ancestor Man Suotian never showed up after reaching Dao Perfection, nor had he any idea about his current whereabouts. Man Huishan only knew that his ancestor still lived, but that’s all he knew. Who could the Barbarian Dragon Clan rely on if something happened? It had to depend on him and his title of Dragon Emperor.
Within the best suit of the best Grand Essence Ruins’ rest stop, Man Huishan casually picked up the cup of spiritual tea on the table. He took a sip as he pondered over these matters. It didn’t matter if the Five-coloured Star Splitter Arrow fell into the hands of Lifeless Poisonhand or the Heartless Monk. Or, even if it was still on Ning Cheng’s body, he couldn’t let anyone else know about it. This weapon, Man Huishan, decided to make it his own.
After taking a sip of the spiritual tea, but before putting the teacup on the table, the Man Huishan’s face suddenly twisted with rage. The teacup in his hand immediately disintegrated, and he even slapped the table in front of him into nothingness. He suddenly stood up and shouted like a raging lunatic, “Who dared to kill this Man Huishan’s son?”
