Immortal Path to Heaven - Chapter 831 - Illusion Formation
Chapter 831: Illusion Formation
It seemed like there were more flying swords than there were falling snow.
Nonetheless, they instantly slowed down after the illusory ancient ape opened its right eye.
A ruthless look could be seen in the black-robed man’s eyes for a split second, making him look somewhat mad. He bit the tip of his tongue, then he spat out his essence and blood before he shouted in a hoarse voice, “The Ultimate Sword Art!”
At the same time his voice echoed, numerous flying swords in the sky cried and flew up and down.
“Explode!” The black-robed man pointed at the sky and yelled. The threads of spiritual Qi that lingered on his hand broke off completely while the flying swords, which blotted out the sky, cracked bit by bit until they crumbled. A vast spiritual Qi swept the ground, causing the universe to roar.
Ou Yangming’s face changed. He quickly backed away.
The water in the Tianlan River boiled and flowed upstream against the current as it was stirred up by the airwave.
“Hmph, you’re courting death by forcing me to use the Ultimate Sword Art!” The black-robed man kept sneering. The sword technique was performed by making 1,000 to 10,000 flying swords self explode, causing a superb penetrating power to be generated. He had obtained this technique from a sword cultivator. Apart from his sect’s secret technique, this was his greatest offensive trick. Therefore, the man was certain that this attack alone would be enough to severely injure the newly advanced Venerable One and cause its combat power to decline.
The black-robed man then shifted his gaze to Ou Yangming and looked fervently at him. He lifted his right hand to grab the young fellow.
With that, a big white hand that was condensed from wind and snow pressed toward Ou Yangming from the sky to capture him alive.
Even so, Ou Yangming was not afraid at all and kept a straight face. ‘King Kong went through 6 Heavenly Thunderbolts and possesses the bloodline of ancient apes, so how could it be easily defeated?’ Sure enough, before his thought had even gone away, an explosion was heard.
“Get lost! Get lost right now!” Multi-armed King Kong’s eyes were bloodshot, and its body was covered with densely packed wounds. Nevertheless, the wounds were very shallow, and some of them had even begun to heal. Indeed, after overcoming 6 Heavenly Thunderbolts, the king kong’s body became too frightening, and its healing power was remarkable.
It flashed and simply used its body to knock off the big white hand that was condensed from snowflakes. Concurrently, it counterattacked, where the reflection of an ancient ape’s figure could be seen in its eyes. As it breathed, a queer soundwave was released, then it slashed at the sky.
The black-robed man seemed to have fallen into a bloody world. He was evidently stunned.
Despite that, the saber-light was too fast, hence it was too late by the time he came back to his senses. As such, he could only subconsciously dodge downward.
“Crack!” The mask of an evil ghost on his face broke into halves, and a 5-centimeters-deep extended from his forehead to his chin, causing his originally good-looking face to appear broken.
When Ou Yangming looked, he shouted coldly with a dark face, “It’s you—Qiu Chengwang from Reborn in Paradise!”
The black-robed man was Qiu Chengwang from Reborn in Paradise in Zhangzhou.
Seeing as he was already recognized, Qiu Chengwang decided not to hide anymore. He chuckled and responded, “So what if it’s me? It’ll be easy for everyone if you come with me now. If you don’t, this big fella alone can’t stop me.”
Ou Yangming shook his head and replied coldly to him, “You’ve always been in a disadvantageous spot from the start, and now your face is also ruined. How do you still have the courage to say this?” He spoke calmly but told the bloody truth.
“You…” Qiu Chengwang was so furious that he laughed instead. He clapped his hands twice and uttered coldly, “Very well, very well, very well. If that’s the case, I’ll let you have a taste of my sect’s lost art!”
King Kong was unafraid. It laughed out loud and yelled, “Let’s fight!”
At the spur of the moment, a domineering mental power burst out from Qiu Chengwang’s body. Ou Yangming’s face changed because the mental power was greater than his. He could only signal the goshawk with his eyes in secret, but the goshawk understood him at once and flew away.
Before long, a tyrannical spiritual storm raged like a horned dragon.
A ferocious multicolored beast with fangs as sharp as blades appeared in front of Multi-armed King Kong and charged at it with a majestic force. At this moment, the king kong was slightly dazed for a moment, where its eyes looked dull.
Taking advantage of this window, Qiu Chengwang’s eyes flickered, and he waved his hand. Consequently, a series of formation boards shot out like light streams, and they connected to form a net. He was much more familiar than Ou Yangming in this, and his technique was extremely unique. A 2 to 2.3 kilometers big formation enveloped Multi-armed King Kong and the young fellow in a flash. Once the black-robed man was done, his forehead was also covered in beads of cold sweat, and he looked pale. Clearly, the secret spiritual technique and the big formation were also too much for him to bear.
As for the goshawk, it went far away and happened to be outside the formation.
Ou Yangming felt that his vision went blurry and his head became heavy. The world in front of him changed completely, by which the undulating mountains, the calm Tianlan River, and the falling snowflakes were gone. What replaced them were a boundless plain, light breezes, and grasses that bent over at the same time. A green wave rippled from far to near then spread out again. It carried a unique charm, and it rose and fell continuously like a tide.
The young fellow’s face changed. After observing everything for some time, he exclaimed, “Is this an Illusion Formation Map? How can it be so real?”
He knew very well the fact that Qiu Chengwang could set up a formation map in such a hurry and trap a Venerable One inside proved that the man’s understanding of formation boards was far beyond his imagination.
Multi-armed King Kong stood next to Ou Yangming and watched its surroundings warily. The illusory ancient ape behind it opened its other eye as well, where the eye turned into a blood light and formed a red saber. The red light circulated and carried a strong killing intent, whereas the saber was incredibly solid and had innumerable complicated patterns carved on it.
Ou Yangming sighed. ‘Looks like the illusory ancient ape carves weapons according to one’s requirements, so they could be a saber, a sword, or even an ax.’ In actuality, as imagined by the young fellow, the items that were condensed by the illusory ape were not only limited to material objects.
The saber rang as Multi-armed King Kong grabbed it tightly and roared, “Get your *ss out here! You’re a Venerable One and yet you dare not confront your enemy head-on?”
At this time, the sky was clear and cloudy, and a green wave was seen surging on the ground. Having said that, it was quiet as though Qiu Chengwang had disappeared.
Ou Yangming and Multi-armed King Kong knew Qiu Chengwang was hiding in the dark.
Seeing as nobody responded even after some time, Multi-armed King Kong grunted coldly. The saber force in its hand gushed out as it launched several hits at the sky. As a result, the universe rumbled, a visible ripple appeared in the space, and the ground quaked. Everything was so real as if they were in a real world.
Outside the Tianlan River, the goshawk turned pale.
From its perspective, Multi-armed King Kong seemed to have been possessed by a devil as it kept wielding its saber. It was worth noting that countless saber-lights had appeared, so much so that a peak was even flattened already. The king kong’s eyes were bloodshot, and the spiritual Qi inside its dantian was being consumed at an unbelievable speed. On the other hand, Ou Yangming’s eyes flickered as if he was focusing on finding something with his eyebrows furrowed.
After a brief moment, the formation was filled with fog, thus the goshawk could not see anything anymore.
The goshawk tensed up right away. Without any hesitation, it increased its speed to the maximum and zoomed away in the form of a green light. It was so fast that even Qiu Chengwang, who was inside the formation, could not stop it at all. Besides, he could not be distracted because he needed to control the formation map, or his loss would outweigh his gain if Multi-armed King Kong managed to break free.
Inside the Illusion Formation, Multi-armed King Kong was still wielding its saber as it wanted to tear the canopy apart.
Ou Yangming breathed out some murky air and uttered in a deep voice, “King Kong, stop.”
Multi-armed King Kong was startled for a while, but the red light in its eyes slowly faded away, then it halted without any hesitation.
“Why is this so odd?” Ou Yangming frowned and murmured.
Everything inside the illusion made him feel like they were made smoothly. The plain, the breezes, and the white clouds had somehow integrated flawlessly. Even if he used all of his mental power, it was difficult for him to find a way out in such a hurry. Moreover, the spiritual Qi inside the young fellow’s dantian was disappearing at an unbelievable speed—thrice as fast as the outside world. He was appalled.
All of a sudden, breezes were blowing on the plain.
The grass swayed, but the winds grew stronger and greater.
Plenty of green grasses were cut off by the winds, and some of them were even uprooted.
The broken parts of the grasses and rhizomes rose into the sky and became so sharp that they could almost slice the space as they spiraled. Owing to their motion, green lights could be seen, and the sky turned dark. While dark clouds blotted out the sky, weeds, rhizomes, and gravel were stirred up into the sky batch after batch, then they whirled into a vortex.
Eventually, the vortex grew larger and spread such that it could even devour nothingness.
“Strangle!” A sound was heard out of nowhere but the instant it was heard, all of the miscellaneous stuff inside the vortex paused.
It was as if the person that spoke was the ruler of this world; he was Heaven, he was the king, and his words carried enormous weight.
Numerous weeds and gravel covered the entire sky and shot toward Multi-armed King Kong as though they were shooting stars with tails. They were unimaginably fast, such that they almost touched the king kong’s body in the blink of an eye.
That said, Multi-armed King Kong was not afraid at all. It spun its one-handed arm blade and worked its step technique so fast that it managed to block them.
As for Ou Yangming, he was obviously treated lightly by Qiu Chengwang, who did not bother about him at all. The black-robed man figured that he only needed to defeat the newly advanced Venerable One, then he would be able to do anything he wanted to the little Spiritualist. If he knew the Spiritualist had escaped from and fooled a top-grade Venerable One many times, what would he think?
When Ou Yangming looked at the light streams that were shot out from the sky, he entered the integration of Heaven and man, as well as the thoroughly meticulous state.
Although the young fellow still could not perceive the queer Illusion Formation in those states, when he increased his energy, essence, and spirit to their peaks, he could vaguely sense where dangers were coming from inside the formation map.
His face changed suddenly as he uttered, “King Kong, left.”
King Kong roared and wielded its hand blade. With that, massive spiritual power transformed into surging energies that blasted out to crumble the threat in that direction.
Ou Yangming would always inform Multi-armed King Kong during crucial times, allowing it to deal with the crises. Due to their excellent chemistry, the weeds and stones did not even manage to ruin the king kong’s clothes at all. An untypical balance was achieved between them.
Qiu Chengwang sneered, but he was not in a hurry. ‘Their consumptions are much higher than mine since they’re trapped in the Illusion Formation. As long as I continue to wear them out, the outcome will be set.
However, a violent sound was heard coming from the sky after half an hour. It sounded like a sudden clap of thunder in Qiu Chengwang’s heart.
