Chapter 18: You’re Looking for Me?
Translator: Atlas Studios Editor: Atlas Studios
Everyone was watching to see Wu Ji kill Jiang Lan.
Wu Ji felt the same as well. She believed that there was no need to stab the other party a second time.
She would seal his fate with just one strike.
However, just when Wu Ji thought that she was about to kill Jiang Lan with the sword…
Jiang Lan, who had been standing where he was, suddenly disappeared.
The sword sliced through the air.
“Where is he?”
Wu Ji was flabbergasted.
She looked at her three companions.
However, she was stunned by what she saw. Her three companions seemed to be covered in blood, and their faces were filled with terror.
What… What happened?
The moment Wu Ji thought of this, she felt her perspective change.
It was as if she had suddenly gone to a faraway place and then suddenly fell flat.
Did the world become lopsided?
But the next moment, a sharp pain spread across her entire body.
She wanted to move, but realized that she couldn’t. In the next instant, she realized that half of her body was gone.
“Were you looking for me just now?”
Jiang Lan’s voice entered Wu Ji’s ears.
Only then did Wu Ji realize that she was about to die.
She had been killed instantly by the other party.
“How… how is this possible?”
This question flashed through Wu Ji’s mind.
Then, she completely lost consciousness.
She did not feel too much pain.
Jiang Lan retracted his gaze.
Then, he turned to look at the other three people. He wanted to ask how many people were there.
If the situation wasn’t bad enough to affect him, then it was fine.
He would just head back and crouch.
If it would affect him, he had to think of a way to deal with it quickly.
Otherwise, if Senior Sister Ao and the others return, he would have no choice but to take action, which would be troublesome.
If he was the only one left alive, there was no way he could answer to Kunlun.
He couldn’t possibly say that all those people sacrificed themselves to save him, right?
Moreover, if he was the only one alive, he would be too big of a target and would be noticed by many people.
It would not benefit him in the future.
When Jiang Lan looked at the three people, they finally regained their senses.
One of the men immediately said,
“Stop him, I’ll report this back.”
After saying that, he ran away.
Jiang Lan didn’t care about the person who ran away. Instead, he walked towards the other two.
“You’re not escaping?”
Jiang Lan looked at them and asked.
He could tell that they were afraid.
At this moment, the two of them exchanged glances before charging towards Jiang Lan.
“I don’t believe you’re really that strong.”
It was impossible. The person before them was clearly only at the perfected stage of Qi Refinement.
How did he manage to kill one of them in a second?
It was just a moment. Just a short moment.
It was definitely not a matter of cultivation.
It was not impossible for it to be due to a Dharma treasure.
They’ll take their chances.
Jiang Lan looked at the two people who were rushing over and immediately appeared in front of them in a flash.
With a punch, the one that was closer to him was directly blasted into a bloody mist.
When the other saw this scene, he immediately ran back in fear.
He was too powerful. He was too terrifying.
It was just a simple punch.
They had clearly used all their strength.
But they were still so weak in front of him.
He could not win against him.
Jiang Lan looked at him and took a step forward.
He activated the Nine Steps of Heavenly Travel.
In the next moment, Jiang Lan appeared beside the man. When the man saw the sudden appearance of the killer, he screamed.
Then, he tried to escape in another direction.
Jiang Lan ended his fear.
The blood mist lingered in the air.
Then, he walked forward, following the fleeing man without haste.
The other party’s words clearly told him that they had other accomplices.
Therefore, Jiang Lan decided to take a look.
In order to not have to search for them himself, he let the other party lead the way.
Of course, Jiang Lan would kill him before he reached them.
It would be troublesome to keep those who had witnessed his attack alive.
At this moment, a ball of mist appeared on Jiang Lan’s body.
The mist covered his face, figure, and his secrets.
Two different people would see two different situations.
But none of them would be able to see Jiang Lan’s face clearly.
Even heavenly reading techniques couldn’t see into Jiang Lan’s past.
This was the divine power of the One Leaf Vision.
After learning this, there was basically no one who could guess that it was him through other things.
What they could find out was only the normal him.
As long as the One Leaf Vision was not broken apart, they would not be able to see his secrets.
Currently, Jiang Lan could only conceal his own heavenly secrets. He was unable to sense if anyone was trying to read into him.
However, as his cultivation level increased, his One Leaf Vision would also become a divine power of a higher level.
At that time, as long as someone was reading him, he would notice it.
Jiang Lan walked in the mist. He didn’t use that small trick like earlier. It was as if he had merged into the mist, making it difficult for others to detect.
Not long after, Jiang Lan felt a storm of power around him.
There were also countless growls.
Jiang Lan didn’t feel like it was too far away.
In the mountains, in an area where there was no fog, a group of demonic beasts attacked a defensive circle.
There were more than ten Kunlun disciples in the defensive circle.
They were covered in injuries.
Leading them were two women, both at the Golden Core realm.
Ao Longyu was one of them.
Scales had appeared on Ao Longyu’s hands.
Dragon horns sprouted from her head.
It was just that her body was covered in blood. Some belonged to others and some were her own.
“Someone is controlling the beasts.” As a dragon, Ao Longyu immediately discovered this.
“If Senior Sister didn’t have a spell that could expel the fog, we wouldn’t have lasted until now.
Those people are trying to use the mist and the beast tide to kill us, “said the woman beside Ao Longyu.
She was Lin Siya, a disciple from the Third Summit, and Ao Longyu’s junior sister.
As a Golden Core cultivator, she felt powerless as she looked at the beasts.
She wasn’t the only one. The Kunlun disciples behind her were completely helpless against the beast tide as well.
There was no escape.
