Chapter 361: Violent Killing
Chou Wanli’s face was menacing as he held a wine jar in his left hand and a single saber in his right. The blade was snow-white and radiated a cold aura.
With more than 10 other cultivators, Chou Wanli rushed over in a huff.
“I am Ji Chengtian. Fellow Daoist, how can I help you?”
Ji Chengtian was extremely polite and took the initiative to greet with cupped fists first, nodding as he smiled.
If this was back in Tianhuang Mainland, given Ji Chengtian’s polite manners and the fact that they did not have any deep-seated hatred or benefits to gain, it would be difficult for a conflict to break out.
However, this was the ancient battlefield.
They were not faced with kind people – even if they meant no harm, the other side meant harm!
Chou Wanli raised his brow and asked with a fake smile, “What’s your cultivation?”
“Six meridian Foundation Establishment.”
Ji Chengtian hesitated slightly, not hiding anything.
“What about you guys?”
Chou Wanli looked towards Su Zimo and the others before remarking casually, “This is the rules of Xuantian City! If you want to enter the city, you’ll have to report your cultivation realm without hiding any information!”
Upon hearing this, the cultivators in Xuantian City bore strange expressions.
There was no such rule in the city. The reason why Chou Wanli said that was most likely because he wanted to find out the strength of Su Zimo’s group.
After all, there was no way of telling how many spirit meridians a Foundation Establishment Cultivator unlocked by merely using the Spirit Peering Art.
While Chou Wanli looked like a brute, he was experienced in the world and knew that cultivators who could arrive at Xuantian City were far from simple – he was worried that he might accidentally get into trouble.
Su Zimo frowned at the rules mentioned by Chou Wanli.
Even though little fatty and the others were against it, they still confessed honestly.
Four, five meridian Foundation Establishment… and there was even someone at late-stage Foundation Establishment.
After Su Zimo, the last person to speak, was done, the surrounding cultivators shook their heads in silence.
“Venturing into the depths of the ancient battlefield with that level of strength? They truly have a death wish.”
“That’s right. There are few cultivators who are even at five meridian Foundation Establishment in Xuantian City. Any casual person could wipe their entire group out!”
Chou Wanli was also completely at ease. Drinking a mouthful of strong liquor, he looked intoxicated as he burped with his alcohol-like breath onto Ji Chengtian’s face.
Even though Ji Chengtian looked rather terrible, he let out a long breath and endured it.
Snickering, Chou Wanli asked, “It’s been a month since we’ve entered the ancient battlefield. Have you guys obtained any Meridian Unlocking Elixirs?”
Ji Chengtian shook his head without hesitation. “No.”
In reality, each of them had a Meridian Unlocking Elixir in their storage bags.
However, they would definitely get themselves killed if they were to admit to it now!
Chou Wanli nodded and said expressionlessly, “Hand over your storage bags. I’m going to check through it personally.”
The moment he said that, not only Ji Chengtian, even little fatty and the others were enraged.
He was blatantly bullying them!
Su Zimo remained silent as he stood behind Ji Chengtian and watched on coldly.
Ji Chengtian took a deep breath of air and said in a deep voice, “Fellow Daoist, isn’t that request a little overboard…?”
Before Ji Chengtian could finish, Chou Wanli narrowed his gaze and asked with a smile.
Chou Wanli’s eyes shone with a cold glint before he finished his remark. The saber in his hand slashed towards Ji Chengtian’s neck at an extremely fast speed with a chilling aura!
That slash was completely without warning and filled with killing intent!
Ji Chengtian had grown a lot after the month of training and his awareness had increased greatly as well.
Earlier on, he could vaguely sense Chou Wanli’s killing intent.
However, he was thoroughly worn out because of their long journey. As such, he wasn’t in good condition and his reaction was a little slower.
The sharpness of the blade arrived and Ji Chengtian could imagine his throat being sliced as his skin felt a slight sting. He could not help but lament internally, “This is where I die!”
Before he could finish his thought, Ji Chengtian felt a tremendous force yank him backwards.
Chou Wanli’s blade brushed by Ji Chengtian’s throat and slit a bit of his skin as blood seeped out of it – it was an extremely close shave!
If Ji Chengtian was slightly slower, his throat would have been cut by that slash!
Surviving that brush from death had Ji Chengtian breaking out in cold sweat and panting heavily.
He looked towards Su Zimo at his side and was about to express his thanks when his vision blurred as a figure darted by – Su Zimo was already gone.
After reaching out to pull Ji Chengtian back from the edge of death, Su Zimo entered the stance of Plow Heaven Stride immediately without saying a word.
In an instant, the stone slab beneath his feet exploded and the ground shook.
The buildings on both sides of the streets trembled, causing countless cultivators to exclaim.
Su Zimo’s gaze was sharp as a knife as he reached out with outstretched fingers and grabbed at Chou Wanli’s head as though he was engulfing it!
Before Chou Wanli could react after missing that attack, a person with a chilling aura appeared behind Ji Chengtian and struck with a killing move right away.
Su Zimo’s massive palm descended and the atmosphere turned so repressive that Chou Wanli felt suffocated!
Without any time to think, Chou Wanli slashed back in reverse at Su Zimo’s wrist before the latter could finish his move.
The blade trembled and three flashes of light shone.
It was a superior-grade spirit saber!
However, Su Zimo’s physique was extremely strong right now and it was too difficult for ordinary superior-grade spirit weapons to be able to hurt him!
In the face of Chou Wanli’s saber, Su Zimo’s stance remained the same as he reached down and grabbed the blade with his bare hands. With a coil and a tremble, he seized the saber to his side.
Leaning in, Su Zimo gripped the saber in his hand tightly and stabbed in reverse!
Blood flashed and a bloodied saber protruded out from the back of Chou Wanli’s head.
The moment their figures exchanged positions, Chou Wanli’s head was pierced and he died on the spot!
Right from the beginning, Su Zimo could tell that this man was a nefarious figure. That was the reason why he struck with a killing move immediately without any mercy!
After killing Chou Wanli, Su Zimo took a sidestep and leaned into the arms of another cultivator.
That person had just placed his hand on his storage bag when he felt his vision blur and a throbbing pain in his chest. His body flew uncontrollably as he lost consciousness.
Su Zimo’s movements were different as his body swayed, leaving a series of afterimages. Lifting his left arm and using his fist as a seal, it descended onto another person’s head.
Brain juice was splattered!
Yet another person’s corpse fell.
“You must have a death wish!”
The 10 odd cultivators that Chou Wanli brought over snapped to their senses and yelled, whipping out a myriad of weapons. Most of them were heavy melee combat weapons.
One of them raised a gigantic hammer and smashed down on Su Zimo’s head as the wind howled.
Neither dodging nor retreating, Su Zimo gave a punch and went against the person’s spirit weapon with his bare hands. The hammer was sent flying into the arms of another cultivator, causing the latter’s ribs to be broken.
The broken bones stabbed into his lungs like spearheads, causing the person to pant heavily and wheeze hoarsely – it was clear that he was not going to survive.
Shadows intertwined on the long street as Su Zimo weaved through the cultivators in a flash and clashing sounds could be heard.
In less than ten breaths, everything went silent, leaving nothing but corpses on the ground.
