Spirit Talisman Master
The sturdy can feel the opponent is just a first layer of Xiantian, in fact just stepped into Xiantian recently whereas he has been at the mid-Xiantian level for a long time, but the power of that punch is enough to destroy the vitality in his body, the sturdy man falls limply to the ground.
“Third Captain’s dead, quickly run!”
The surrounding men seeing this scene were scared witless, them their horrified faces mirrored each other, their Third Captain is a Xiantian level warrior was killed right in front of them; as veterans of Wild Beast Mountains their survival instinct kicked in, fleeing in panic. If the Third Captain isn’t able to contend, they will meet the same end as the Third Captain, nevertheless, one’s life is the most important.
“Swift Snake Art!”
Lu Kun who was on the other side of the battle can no longer keep his calm seeing that the tide has turned, wrinkled his brows, his hands formed seals, frigid cold xuanqi rotates around him, faint runes swirled to form a black snake, thick as an infant’s arm sent to attack Zhu Xue. It moves as if it was a real life creature.
“Talisman transform, KILL!”
Zhu Xue who was seen getting ever more tired suddenly changed her demeanor as a sharp light flitted across her eyes, her hands continuously forming strange seal signs, an abnormally fierce fluctuation gathered around her, and runes from her xuanqi condensed into a life-like goshawk*.
The goshawk issued a sharp cry spreading its meters wide wings, bringing with it a small hurricane pounced onto the shadow black snake; its talons sank into the black snake’s vital spot tearing it apart into pieces. However, after destroying the little black snake, the goshawk seems to have exhausted its energy, disintegrated into runes before dissipating in the air.
“Spirit Talisman Master, you’re actually a Spirit Talisman Master!”
Lu Kun stared at Zhu Xue, and his expression of shock is enough to prove the three words ‘Spirit Talisman Master’ is by no means an ordinary character, shifting his gaze to look at Du Shaofu wrapped in leaves and vines, looks back at Zhu Xue once again, unwillingly said to the Sky Serpent Sect disciples who were with him: “We’re leaving.”
Following Lu Kun’s words, the several young men’s expression changed greatly however they still obeyed and left following behind Lu Kun.
“Thank you for coming to the rescue. I’m Guo Ming, a disciple of Mystical Talisman House. You saved my life that means I owe you a big favor.” The young man saved by Du Shaofu picked up his long sword from the ground, and with a look of gratitude walked up to Du Shaofu to convey his thanks.
“So, you’re part of Mystical Talisman House.”
Du Shaofu had heard of Mystical Talisman House, according to rumors they’re a formidable power comparable to Sky Serpent Sect and Blacknether Sect, every disciple is extremely strong, no wonder this young man in front, who is about the same age as him but already break through to Xiantian.
Tilted up his head to looked at Guo Ming, suddenly seemed to think of something: “Do you have an extra set of clothes, give me a set.”
“Yes, I brought many.” Guo Ming was dazed for a moment, scrutinizing Du Shaofu’s appearance, then realizing something, immediately nodded his head.
Zhu Xue had been standing in the same spot watching Lu Kun retreat until she was sure that Lu Kun really left, only then her face instantly turned pale and red blood spewed from her mouth.
“Senior Sister, are you alright?’
Guo Ming immediately ran to Zhu Xue’s side, his face colorless from the fright.
“I’m alright, just consumed too much energy just now. We must leave at once; if they return with reinforcement, we’ll be in trouble.” Zhu Xue said to Guo Ming and nodded towards Du Shaofu with a faint smile as thanks for lending a helping hand.
Du Shaofu didn’t mind them at all, squatting beside the sturdy man’s corpse his hands busy searching, whatever deemed valuable plundered clean, even the several Houtian beast hunters killed by Guo Ming did not escape the same fate. This scene stunned Guo Ming and Zhu Xue so much that they looked at each other in disbelieve.
Not long after in a valley, Du Shaofu put on a set of new blue robes given to him by Guo Ming, compared to the purple robes he used to wear, the material is so much better, making him appear tall and straight.
From Guo Ming and Zhu Xue, Du Shaofu got to know that roughly a month has passed from the time the Golden-winged Garuda and Demonic Purpleflame Phoenix blew up, so much time passed from the time he regained conscious and practiced the Golden-Winged Garuda’s exercise law.
Apart from that, from Guo Ming and Zhu Xue, Du Shaofu also got to know that Sky Serpent Sect, Blacknether Sect, Mystical Talisman House and other sects’ experts’ intention was to search for treasures from the Golden-winged Garuda and Demonic Purpleflame Phoenix’s bodies however when they left and didn’t return. The disciples that were left behind waiting didn’t know what happened to them. After waiting for very long time, they carefully ventured out check out the situation.
When they reach the place of the incident, the whole area was a scene of destruction, the Golden-winged Garuda and the Demonic Purpleflame Phoenix’s bodies nowhere to be found. What they did find however was feathers from both wicked beasts. Although those are just remains of feathers but still considered as rare treasures, which caused everyone to fight over for it.
Disciples from the three sects got into a heated battle, many died and some injured, however when everyone dispersed, they were separated.
Later, the surrounding area’s beast hunting teams and mercenaries entered Wild Beast Mountain and their numbers are still increasing. Zhu Xue and Guo Ming found out Lu Kun was co-operating with a beast hunting team called White Panther Hunting Group targeting the Demonic Purpleflame Phoenix feather in their possession, while escaping they coincidentally met Du Shaofu.
Listening to them recount the details of what happened, Du Shaofu had a rough idea about the overall situation, even so, Du Shaofu isn’t going to tell Zhu Xue and Guo Ming that the experts from their sect had already been torn apart by the three beast kings. The White-haired Oldman fled pursued by one of the beast kings and from the looks of it, the chances of him surviving are extremely slim.
It wasn’t that Du Shaofu intentionally hid the information from Zhu Xue and Guo Ming since matters are related to the Golden-winged Garuda and the Demonic Purpleflame Phoenix, it is better to keep his mouth shut rather than attracting some unforeseen disaster.
Du Shaofu is no fool if anyone found out that he’s practicing the Golden-winged Garuda’s exercise law, trouble will come endlessly – from being treated as an experiment guinea pig or worse, killed without question.
“We still don’t know your name, from which sect are you? This time truly thank you for your help.” Zhu Xue’s clear bright eyes observe Du Shaofu, a smile curving at the corner of her lips on an oval face, dressed in a light green skirt looking elegant and beautiful.
“Du Shaofu, no sect no faction*.” Du Shaofu answered Zhu Xue with a faint smile.
Zhu Xue and Guo Ming seem to find it hard to believe, they saw behind this youth there is the existence of a strong expert that oppresses Sky Serpent Sect, even the Copper Snake Elder dares not move recklessly. Thinking perhaps Du Shaofu is reluctant to disclose anything due his master’s reminder did not question further, smiling lightly: “Do you have any plan?”
Du Shaofu said: “I intend to leave Wild Beast Mountain and head towards Stone City.”
Frowning, Zhu Xue said: ”From our location to reach Stone City, with our speed without any delay even half a month might not be enough. Junior Brother Guo Ming and I also intend to leave Wild Beast Mountain then think of a way to contact the experts from our house to look for our separated disciples. There is danger lurking in every corner of Wild Beast Mountains, how about we move together?”
Du Shaofu pondered for a moment, Guo Ming and Zhu Xue are both Xiantian level warriors their strength’s not weak, and since there is safety in numbers
even though they bring along some trouble but he had already interfered thus he nodded: “Alright, let’s go together.”
