Chapter 140: Evil Typha Drinking Blood (2)
Chen Baojiao didn’t know what was going on, but Li Shuangyan and Niu Fen understood, so they both stepped back and dragged Chen Baojiao, who was standing in the middle, to the back as well.
“Good, let us start. Pretty boy Sheng Tian, little bastard Qing Xuan, go, this big uncle will slaughter all of you!”
Li Qiye laughed. At this moment, he activated the runes on the dao platform.
As the Demon Monarchs of the Flying Dragon Lake in the faraway common area and the other cultivators witnessed this scene in the Heavenly Mirror, they felt it was defying all common sense. A Demon Monarch murmured:
“Has this brat gone crazy? Does he want to slaughter everyone? He went insane!”
“A mere firefly that still dares to compete with the brilliance of the moon!”
Heavenly Child Qing Xuan’s azure and mysterious eyes capable of seeing through everything unleashed a sword made from the aura to cut Li Qiye.
Dao Child Sheng Tian also snorted and took out a True Treasure to slash at Li Qiye with a cruel glimmer in his eyes.
“Kill! Slaughter this brat!”
Suddenly, all the cultivators from behind also rushed forward, not only intending to kill Li Qiye, but also to seize the treasure.
However, at this very moment, the Dao platform underneath Li Qiye which resembled a precious treasure case suddenly staggered, and horrible bloody rays rushed out in the blink of an eye!
Carrying immense power, the rays threw out all the people with an impact that knocked all of them, including Heavenly Prince Qing Xuan, Grandpa Guan, and Dao Child Sheng Tian, flying away the moment it pierced the sky. Everyone who took action, whether they were Royal Nobles or Enlightened Beings, were all swept flying like falling leaves.
At this moment, the center of the dao platform completely opened. A stream of actual blood which was different from the former bloody rays gushed out. This stream of blood dispersed a iron-like bloody stench that filled the air in the entire area.
This fresh blood was extremely beautiful, demonically beautiful! It soared up to the sky and encompassed the group of Li Qiye, and subsequently rushed straight down and turned into thousands of blood arrows heading straight at Li Qiye’s group.
“Haha, you dare to even mess with me! Do you not remember the lesson?”
Li Qiye smiled, and gently blew some lotus ashes that he carried in his palm. The lotus ashes immediately hovered around Li Qiye’s body, and at the same time, Li Shuangyan and Niu Fen also spilled some lotus ashes and disappeared within its midst.
The blood arrows ‘felt’ the dread of the lotus ashes and instantly melted into one, hovering in the sky, as if it was staring carefully at Li Qiye.
Suddenly, this bloody amalgamation turned into countless strands of blood, and they all shot out with extreme speed impossible for the eyes to discern.
Seeing the strands of blood flying forward, the cultivators who were knocked away earlier summoned their Life Treasures!
But even when they Life Treasures, they couldn’t cut through these strands of blood. In an instant, blood spurted and cultivator after cultivator was impaled by the bloody lines.
Screams rang out. While the piercing wounds of the blood strands themselves weren’t fatal, when these strands of blood were through the body, they started to suck the cultivators’ blood at a shocking rate and immediately grew in size.
In a flash, pitiful bellows resounded in the air. A few hundred cultivators’ blood were sucked dry, and they fell down from the sky.
Seeing the indestructible strings of blood, they were terrified. One yelled loudly and turned around to run.
“Bang… Bang… Bang…”
However, at this moment, many large roots rushed out from the ground like octopus tentacles, but they were far more terrible than ordinary tentacles.
This person running away was pierced by the root and had his blood sucked dry as he wrinkled up and ended up a dry, empty husk.
Amidst this chaos, countless large evil roots rushed towards all the cultivators with extreme velocity, interweaving into an inescapable net that surrounded the group of the Heavenly Child Qing Xuan.
The group of Heavenly Prince Qing Xuan ferociously roared and activated their techniques with flying Life Treasures thundering in the air, slashing away at the inescapable net made from the tree roots.
But, the evil roots were far more terrible than their imagination. As the sounds of “Xshhhh, Xshhh, Xshhhh” reverberated, the strings of blood from the dao platform were absorbed by the evil roots and suddenly, a terrible evil aura appeared and countless more roots came into being like endless needles.
At this time, behind the endless tree roots was a broken stump. It wasn’t high –only around three feet– but it seemed like a terrible demon lord, all the evil roots had come from its body. The most frightening thing was that it had a pair of black eyes on its body.
When this wooden stump appeared, its terror didn’t stop here. It suddenly emitted an endless evil presence that soared through the sky.
At this time, the evil presence was absorbed by wooden stump and turned into even more strings made out of the black aura. They merged with the evil roots and turned into the most terrible of weapons, which slashed constantly and sucked people’s blood dry should it wrap onto someone.
“It finally came out even stronger than my expectation. On top of that it became a whole stump and not just a main root.”
Li Qiye looked at the wooden stump around three feet long and murmured.
“The wooden stump of the Evil Typha Tree?”
Li Shuangyan was creeped out after seeing the wooden stump with the two black eyes. At this time, she understood why Li Qiye called it a ghastly being.
Meanwhile, a section of the evil roots were trapping and killing all the cultivators while the other roots were frantically devouring the strings of blood from the dao platform.
“What, what are these things? Why are these evil things crazily sucking them?”
The dao platform was still shooting out numerous strings of blood that not only pierced the cultivators’ bodies but also launched into the evil roots and became absorbed by them. Seeing this scene, Chen Baojiao was creeped out, as if the blood were evil.
“You guessed it, these are indeed evil blood.”
Li Qiye cheerfully smiled:
“The peerless valuable blood of the Evil Typha Tree is shockingly scarce. These evil blood are the biggest temptations to the living tree roots and evil plants.
“This is not a treasure of the gods, this is a trap!”
Chen Baojiao was not dumb, and immediately understood the reasoning behind it with an astonished expression.
Li Qiye glanced over at her and said:
“You aren’t too stupid. Who said there was a treasure of the gods here? This is a dao platform that is used to bait the surviving evil roots.”
At this point when the horrifying screech resonated, one cultivator after another died horrifically under the assault of the Evil Typha Root. It knew that Li Qiye was a powerful enemy, so it didn’t target him and only killed the other cultivators.
Having absorbed the precious evil blood along with the evil aura, the stump of the Evil Typha Tree strengthened further! At this point, not to mention the other cultivators, even Royal Nobles would be slaughtered easily.
“Mother, what kind of devil is this…”
The Flying Dragon Lake’s Demon Monarchs along with other cultivators at the common area saw this scene and were shivering with chills.
“Ah, this is the Evil Typha Tree in the legends. When it matures completely, all of us will die in this place without a doubt!”
The Turtle Monarch’s face became pale and he turned tail and ran.
Seeing his escape, other cultivators immediately followed suit.
Enlightened Being Si Tu screamed as an evil root pierced his chest and drained his blood dry in a flash. Even as he was dying, his eyes were wide open, unwilling to believe that this would be his end.
As for the group of Dao Child Sheng Tian and Heavenly Prince Qing Xuan, they were flabbergasted. Despite Heavenly Prince Qing Xuan’s peerless Emperor Merit Laws with the help of Dao Child Sheng Tian and Grandpa Guan, they couldn’t escape the net woven by the evil roots.
As the roots of the Evil Typha Tree absorbed more energy, it became even stronger. A few times Heavenly Prince Qing Xuan’s group almost made it through but the were forced back at the very last moment.
As his Royal Nobles and Enlightened Beings numbers decreased, Heavenly Prince Qing Xuan’s face became extremely ugly, and he made his decision, then roared and shouted:
In the blink of an eye, he summoned an item that was floating on top of his head.
Amidst the fires and thunders, when this item came out, the invincible Emperor aura turned into an Emperor light that swept through everything, slashing the countless evil roots from the sky and protecting the group of Heavenly Prince Qing Xuan as they rushed out of the net.
Seeing the invincible aura of an Emperor, the group of Chen Baojiao lost their colors.
Yes, the item that the Heavenly Prince Qing Xuan summoned was an Emperor’s possession in the form of a ring. Even though its power was limited in usage, but it could protect them as they made their way out of the entrapment without an issue.
“You want to escape? It won’t be that easy.”
Li Qiye smiled with the Invisible Dual Blades in his hand.
Suddenly, the two blades shattered as Li Qiye uttered a roar. The shattered blades spewed out Emperor power that suddenly aggregated into two large blades.
Li Qiye howled, and the Emperor blades cut through the sky straight at the Emperor’s ring that was protecting the group of Heavenly Prince Qing Xuan.
Li Qiye destroyed his Invisible Dual Blades and unleashed the remaining Emperor’s power into his strike which was capable of cutting down even the sun and the moon!
The Emperor’s ring felt threatened so it unleashed an invincible power to face the Emperor’s blades.
Under the presence of the Emperor’s powers, the entire Evil Infested Ridge trembled. The powers of two Immortal Emperors colliding would have an unthinkable consequence.
A loud explosion reverberated throughout the entire ridge. All existences including Heavenly Beasts and Longevity Spirits shook in fear!
