Chapter 1362: Intense battle!
Killing intent filled the entire desert.
Red Wraith lowered his head as his killing intent gradually became more profound.
“You think you’ll be fine just by hiding yourself?”
Muttering that, his fingers quickly danced across the void of space.
With a small drop of blood, the Life Talisman was completed.
Standing just a bit away, the orange cat’s hairs stood on their ends.
『 We don’t have enough time to run, if you want to fight then we fight, I’ll go first! 』the [Chaos] Serpentes quickly spoke.
Holy light erupted from its body, forming a sea of light in mid-air.
As soon as it escaped from the orange cat’s body, it became visible again.
“You are—– the Awaiting Ouroboros?”
Red Wraith was surprised for a split second, then swiftly undid the bloody talisman in front of him to draw another talisman.
The white light illuminated heaven and earth, reflecting upon Red Wraith’s body.
Chaos Divine Skill, [Hyaline Slash]!
Clang clang clang clang clang clang——–
A long series of clattering noises resounded from Red Wraith’s armor.
After being struck continuously, he spat up blood.
“You want to kill me? Then die!”
Red Wraith angrily roared, quickly drawing a bloody talisman in mid-air.
A light-blue glow burst forth from the talisman to receive the illuminating holy light from above.
A resounding noise completely unintelligible to humans echoed through the air before converging as a loud explosion.
The orange cat took a few more steps back and quickly pondered his measures.
“Shannu, can those Life Talismans be broken?” he asked.
“I can break them, but the Life Talismans would instantly come into effect as soon as they’re drawn, so unless you can hit the Life Talisman before that moment, you won’t make it in time!” Shannu understood that it was an urgent situation, so she quickly explained.
“That’s difficult, he draws talismans too quickly” Gu Qing Shan shook his head.
“Earth sword, how many Soul Points do you need to kill it?” Shannu asked.
The Earth sword spoke in a heavy voice: 「 I sense that Gu Qing Shan’s Soul Points might not be enough to slay him——- because this body isn’t the wraith’s body, but a different kind of corpse 」
“A different kind of corpse?” Gu Qing Shan asked in surprise.
「 Indeed, a powerful entity beyond all imaginations had left this corpse after their death, which Red Wraith is currently possessing 」the Earth sword explained.
Gu Qing Shan sighed.
Then the only solution is to go against him head-on.
If only I can use the Heaven sword——
Gu Qing Shan turned to his Thought Sea, only to see that the Heaven sword was still sleeping.
“Prepare for combat” Gu Qing Shan declared.
Suddenly, the Chao Yin sword vibrated to let out a ‘wu wu’ noise.
“Gongzi, wait! Chao Yin said that Red Wraith’s Life Talismans didn’t use up any vitality? How could he continuously unleash so many powerful Life Talismans without killing anyone?” Shannu asked.
The swords and the orange cat all looked at the middle of the battlefield.
At a distance—–
The battle in the desert had entered a dangerous state.
As the two kinds of light reached a stalemate, a sprite of tiny light appeared from within the holy light.
This tiny sprite of light lightly trembled, then abruptly manifested a blinding sun that unleashed a rain shower of scorching flames.
—–Chaos Divine Skill, [Green Fire]!
All the cold light-blue light was thoroughly burned away.
The Red Wraith didn’t panic at all and shouted hysterically: “Nice moves!”
He stopped drawing talismans and instead took out a blood-colored talisman from his Inventory Bag.
The blood-color talisman was caught by the wind and was instantly burnt into nothingness.
Over a thousand figures of wraiths appeared out of nowhere, swinging their weapons to receive the green flames.
They either faced it head-on or crashed straight into the green flames to ensure mutual destruction.
Several of the strongest wraith figures stood around Red Wraith, carefully protecting him.
——Wraith Life Talisman, [One Thousand Eight Hundred Wraiths]!
“Laughable Awaiting, you couldn’t even resolve your own matters and you’re trying to interfere with mine? You’re courting death!” Red Wraith shouted out loud.
With over a thousand wraith figures protecting him, Red Wraith once again reached towards his neck to take some blood and began drawing talismans in mid-air.
Gu Qing Shan sent his voice towards the three swords:
“That body’s blood contains a vast amount of vitality, so he doesn’t need to worry about using it up for his talismans”
“Then, how about using [Grand Mountain]?” Shannu suggested.
Gu Qing Shan considered his options: “That won’t do, he’s already in an unconscious state, so [Grand Mountain] will probably do nothing, I need to use swordsmanship—— and I need to ensure that he doesn’t get a chance to draw his talismans, ending this battle in an instant”
During that pause, Red Wraith had already finished drawing two bloody talismans.
He looked up towards the endless white light in the sky, shouting: “Come, Awaiting, let us see which of the four Divine Beasts favor you”
The two bloody talismans solidified and scattered.
Supreme Yin Heavenly Talisman, [Four Saints]!
Supreme Yin Heavenly Talisman, [Palace Offering]!
The scene of the desert slowly melted away as a palace slowly manifested——–
“Oh no, we can’t let him use this technique!” Gu Qing Shan hurriedly sent his voice.
『 I know! 』the Serpentes King replied.
Ouroboros had also seen these two talismans in action, so it naturally knew how powerful they were.
It suddenly manifested into a long snake whose body glowed in holy light, the snake then bit its own tail and rapidly spun in a circle.
A holy aria echoed throughout the sky, with numerous unheard entities unleashing their powers one after another, infusing them onto the snake.
——Chaos Divine Skill, [Praise of the Eternal World]!
The melting desert suddenly stopped; the scene of the palace also became stuck, unable to fully manifest.
They were in a stalemate.
The two talismans’ power had gone into a stalemate with the Chaos Divine Skill.
Red Wraith loudly laughed: “Ahahaha, you’re capable, but next…”
He began to draw talismans again.
「 We have to go head-on 」the Earth sword said.
“We only have one chance to act, he would definitely be able to use a talisman to deal with us the second time” Gu Qing Shan lightly said.
“Understood, gongzi” Shannu replied.
The Chao Yin sword silently listened and remained silent.
——-there weren’t any other strategies to be thinking about right now.
“Go!” Gu Qing Shan shouted.
Instantly, space became blurred as the orange cat vanished where he was standing.
Divine Skill, [Shadow Shift]!
One of the wraith shadows standing guard behind Red Wraith suddenly disappeared.
It was replaced by a giant black dragon.
The black dragon unleashed a scorching dragon breath.
Red Wraith abruptly turned around and tossed out a talisman, laughing loudly as he did: “I knew there was another one hiding in the shadow, your outcome has been determined”
The talisman manifested an icy jade ring in mid-air, firmly blocking the dragon’s breath.
Red Wraith shouted, calling the wraith shadows that were protecting him to charge towards the black dragon.
The wraith shadows and black dragon kept one another busy as both ascended into the sky.
Red Wraith muttered: “Another one?”
As he said so, he had already reached both hands towards his Inventory Bag.
A sword infinitely enlarged itself in front of his eyes, pierced through his forehead, and went through all the way.
At the same time, another sword thrust through the back of his head, exiting at his forehead.
Secret Art, [Swallow Returns].
One of the strongest assassinating sword techniques.
The yaksha mask was broken, falling into pieces.
Red Wraith lifted his hand in mid-air, clearly the posture to swing some sort of weapon.
——-but there were no weapons in his hand.
“Where… are… my… Blades…?”
Red Wraith moaned confusedly.
Gu Qing Shan was also startled for a split second——-
The other party didn’t have a weapon!
As a Samsara entity of supreme power, this was completely unbelievable!
However, as this wasn’t the time to hesitate, Gu Qing Shan instantly activated his Lightning Thaumaturgy—–
Red Wraith uttered an unwilling scream, but then started trembling without being able to move at all.
Gu Qing Shan let go of the Earth sword, then reached his hand into the air.
The black dragon that was fighting against the wraith shadows suddenly disappeared and turned into an autumn water-clear blue steel sword, then flashed.
The sword directly appeared in Gu Qing Shan’s hand, which pierced through the crimson armor before it started vibrating.
A large sword phantom shot forward like a bolt of lightning.
Red Wraith spat up blood as a large hole was blown open into his body.
He seemed to have escaped [Dreamjolt]’s influence as he laughed maniacally:
“You can’t kill me! This heavenly being’s blood is my talisman’s vitality, as long as the blood doesn’t run dry, I won’t die!”
Gu Qing Shan scowled.
At this time, the Chao Yin sword suddenly vibrated loudly.
Without hesitation, Gu Qing Shan let go of the Six Paths Great Mountain sword and wielded the Chao Yin sword.
Lines of blood-red text appeared on the War God UI:
[The Chao Yin sword requires your Soul Points to perform All Crossing Sea of Bitterness!]
Gu Qing Shan only read the very first line before a thought flashed through his mind.
Chao Yin can control water, could it be—–
Gu Qing Shan immediately infused his Soul Points into the sword.
The Chao Yin sword loudly vibrated.
A torrent of blood abruptly poured out from the hole in the middle of Red Wraith’s body.
All of the blood within this heavenly being’s body was sucked completely dry by Chao Yin and left hovering next to Gu Qing Shan.
Red Wraith stood motionlessly in the middle of the desert.
His throat twitched, muttering: “I… don’t believe…”
