AST 2478 - Violent Slash, West Rendu

Qing Shui had only called out the Dragon Slaying Beast to probe the water. There were many strong snake-typed creatures with the Dragon Bloodline, so if this creature also had the Dragon Bloodline, he would feel a lot more at ease.

It instantly lost 40% of its overall strength, but its poison wouldn\'t weaken.

Art of Pursuing!

Buddha Wisdom Seal!

Heavenly Vision Technique!

This clumsy creature instantly became very slow in front of Qing Shui. At this moment, the Dragon Slaying Beast received Qing Shui\'s orders to charge out toward the Hell Demonic Snake.

Hiss hiss...

The Hell Demonic Snake released sharp hissing sounds, sending out black wind that covered up the sky. This wind was several times more terrifying than the tornadoes in Qing Shui\'s previous life. People who weren\'t strong enough would be torn into pieces and disappear.

Black current seethed in the air, and the sharp slash of the wind sounded like the cries of wild beasts.

Even a small mountain shattered under the impact of this terrifying black wind, turning into dust and disappearing into the air.

The Dragon Slaying Beast was situated in the center of the wind and was blown away.


Several black caves appeared behind the Hell Demonic Snake. The black caves were like hell, with ghost fire flashing within them. There was dead silence within the caves with low growls that would make one\'s head turn numb.

Legend had it that the Hell Demonic Snake came from the Nine Spirits Hell Region, not the hell that was thought of by people from Qing Shui\'s previous life. The Nine Spirits Hell Region was the dark underground world of the Nine Continents.

The Hell Demonic Snake was a powerful existence there and specialized in darkness and fire attributes. There were plenty of earthly flames, molten lava, as well as poisonous plants in the underground world.


Black flames were spewed out from one of the caves. They were pitch-black like ink and would make one feel fear by the sight of them.


Qing Shui wasn\'t unfamiliar to this. In the past, Dark Phoenix had been the Hellfire Phoenix and used the Hellfire. However, the Dark Phoenix\'s strength was a far cry from this Hell Demonic Snake. Naturally, Dark Phoenix\'s Hellfire was also a lot weaker than the Hell Demonic Snake\'s.

The Hell Demonic Snake\'s huge body lit up in seething flames. It raised its head, swung its tail, and its huge body swept out toward the group.

Dragon-capturing Hands!


The huge Gold Dragon charged out toward the Hell Demonic Snake.

Qing Shui saw the Hell Demonic Snake pause for a moment and then was caught by his Dragon-capturing Hands. It was struck by a short bout of dizziness before its attack came sweeping out once again.

Six-Mortal Steps!

Divine Weapon Flying Sword!

Qing Shui quickly took six of the Mortal Steps and his strength surged to the peak. The Divine Weapon Flying Sword appeared in his hand, rapidly becoming a huge sword with a brilliant silvery-white color. He then slashed out toward the Hell Demonic Snake.

A brilliant glow dissipated the surrounding fog, and sacred powers seemed to want to open up the sky, possessing a sharpness that seemed to be able to destroy everything.

The Hell Demonic Snake sensed danger. This aura was too dangerous and being very nimble; thus, it stopped its sweeping body. However, Qing Shui had used the Heavenly Vision Technique, and the Hell Demonic Snake\'s speed had been reduced by a lot in his perspective. Therefore, it was unable to draw back its body in time.


A crisp sound rang out, sending blood fog soaring into the sky. There was also a sharp agonizing cry as the huge Hell Demonic Snake had almost half of its body cut off by Qing Shui.

The Hell Demonic Snake was not smaller than the size of a small mountain, so one could imagine how thick and strong its body was. Qing Shui got the Divine Weapon Flying Sword to become sufficiently big and slashed the Hell Demonic Snake into two.

The Hell Demonic Snake didn\'t die, but blood spurted out crazily from its body. The blood flew like a flooding river, gushing out and instantly dyeing the land in red.

However, the Hell Demonic Snake\'s wound quickly stopped bleeding, and its body suddenly shrank in size. It then darted underground and disappeared.

Qing Shui had felt earlier that things weren\'t going well. By the time he reacted, it was already too late. Other than poison and flames, the Hell Demonic Snake also had the earth attribute. Since it excelled in the earth attribute, drilling into the ground would be an easy feat for it.

Qing Shui tossed the bisected snake body into the poison lake in the Realm of the Violet Jade Immortal. This was also a venomous item and shouldn’t be left to go to waste.

Everyone felt a bit regretful to see that the Hell Demonic Snake had escaped. However, it was seriously hurt and wouldn’t be able to recover before eight or ten years had passed. As for whether it could recover to its original state, it would be depended on whether it could find any heavenly and earthly treasures.

After staying in the Nine Suns Purgatory for a week, they had encountered several powerful demonic beasts. Some members of the group had gotten hurt as well. However, they had also found some good medicinal herbs which Qing Shui didn’t have. They didn’t continue to advance any further. Given their current strength, it would be too much for them to venture deeper in.

Therefore, the group headed out together. Their time spent in the Nine Suns Purgatory wasn’t bad. Although they hadn’t found many treasures, they had gotten more experience and were fighting against demonic beasts every day. Their takeaways from this trip were still considered to be quite good.

They didn’t come across many treasures, but the large Yang Stone they had gotten from the North Clan was considered to be a lucky fortune.

It didn’t take long for them to leave this place, but the moment they did, they realize that there were many people around them, and they soon set their eyes on their group. Qing Shui looked in the direction the glances were coming from and smiled. They were the people from the West Clan, the North Can, and quite several other people.

It seemed that there were people from all the Four Directions Clans. What were they trying to do?

Qing Shui knew that there was no way for him to get away from this. He was very capable and wasn’t scared of these people; thus, he led the group and was about to leave.

“Friend, wait up!” A mature male voice that sounded low and powerful rang out. From the person’s voice, Qing Shui could tell that this was a person with strong foundations and confidence.

Qing Shui’s eyes narrowed as he looked toward the man who was walking toward him. The person seemed to be middle-aged, dressed well, and also good-looking. This was a very charming man but gave off the feeling that he was a little proud. However, this man did seem to have the right to be a little arrogant.

The man was quite strong, even more so than Qing Shui. However, he was a far cry from the current Dark Phoenix. He was probably about the same level as the Primordial Dragon Elephant. However, if Qing Shui were to apply weakening on him, he would suffer plenty. Moreover, if Qing Shui were to use the Mortal Steps, he would be able to instantly deal with this man. Qing Shui only had to use the Mortal Steps together with the Divine Weapon Flying Sword or the Stellar Transposition to hit his target.

“You are?” Qing Shui could guess that he was from the Four Directions Clans. It was because he saw North Wind and West Ox behind him.

“I’m West Rendu, from the Four Directions Clans’ West Clan,” said the man confidently.

“Oh, hello. Is anything the matter?” Qing Shui nodded.

West Rendu was stunned as well. This guy either thought very well of himself or was an idiot. However, Qing Shui didn’t seem to be like an idiot to him.

“It’s like this. A junior in our clan says that their Yang Stone is with you. We have use for it, so why don’t you return it to us?” West Rendu said outright. There was no need to beat about the bush. Moreover, Qing Shui seemed to be even more capable than himself in the area of feigning ignorance.

West Rendu was very confident. He believed that Qing Shui would return it. With the West Clan’s reputation as well as his own, no one wouldn’t give him some face. Moreover, he saw that Qing Shui was very young. West Rendu had met many young geniuses, but all of them were but trash to him.

“I’m sorry, you’re mistaken. I don’t have anything that belongs to them. Don’t lose your sense of judgment over a junior’s gibberish. Toward juniors who talk gibberish, you should teach them a good lesson. Otherwise, in the long run, they’ll bring trouble to the clan.” Qing Shui shook his head and said apologetically.
