After the competition between Zi Xun Qian Xia and Hua Qian Gu, Zi Xun Qian Xia returned to her lotus bed behind the veiled gauze, not caring what was happening outside.
The two sides fell into a tense standoff. Hua Qian Gu continued to play the zither, stopping the impatient monsters and demons. She looked to the horizon, feeling relieved, it was almost dawn.
A blue shadow was flying fast, landing on the enemy’s side. The newcomer seemed powerful, she could not help but worried.
“You’re finally here.” Chun Qiu Bu Bai had been waiting for Kuang Ye Tian, with him here, even the Fu Xi Zither could not stop them.
“This isn’t finished yet?” Kuang Ye Tian’s voice was loud like a gong, his body was muscular, half of his arms were bare, a glowing sheen covered the bulging muscles.
“They have the Fu Xi Zither, using sound waves to stop us, we can’t attack with a large force and waiting for you. How’s the other side?”
“Don’t worry, I’ve defeated tens of thousands in Heaven’s army. That’s not Bai Zi Hua playing the zither, right?”
“That’s his new disciple. Bai Zi Hua was tricked by us to go to Mount Lao, he’s probably flying on the wind to get here. I told Lan Yu to use a holy instrument to stop him, but we probably can’t hold him for long. We need to hurry up, everything will fail if he’s here.”
“Huh? Bai Zi Hua finally accepted a disciple? And it’s a little girl? How interesting, why don’t I accept a little girl as my disciple too, then allow them to fight each other? I can’t beat him so I’ll let my disciple beat his disciple, that means we tie, haha.”
“You shouldn’t always think of winning and losing, resurrecting the Demon God is the most important thing, when that time comes, all of the six realms will belong to us.”
“What do you want me to do?”
“Things that are alive will be controlled by the Fu Xi Zither, but things that are dead can’t be controlled.”
“What do you mean?”
“That’s why we’ve been waiting for you.” Chun Qiu Bu Bai always sounded like a flirtatious woman when he planned.
“Although not affected by the zither’s music but hit by the sound waves, the body would be destroyed.”
“There’s the Kun Lun Mirror, use small objects, appear behind her when the sky turns dark, she wouldn’t know.”
“Great, excellent idea.”
“Hurry up, we can finish in half an hour.”
Kuang Ye Tian nodded, retrieving a box from his internal coffer, the box was full of different kinds of wood and tools like rivets, saws, axes. His thick fingers were several times faster than normal people and amazingly accurate. Soon, he finished carving a mosquito from a piece a wood. The wooden mosquito was small but perfectly proportioned, all 108 joints on its body moved freely.
Kuang Ye Tian opened his hand, the mosquito kicked its legs, shook its head, the transparent wings suddenly opened, as if it were alive. Kuang Ye Tian was talented in woodworking, without needing to rely on mystic arts so he had never been caught, from small objects like darts to large objects like siege machines, he relied on his clever craftsmanship to push his ability and precision to the maximum.
Ci Yu put a green hand on the body of the mosquito, the mosquito immediately turned an emerald green. Then she used the Kun Lun Mirror, it disappeared before their eyes.
“Is there a problem?”
“The mosquito’s body is filled with a deathly poison I meticulously created, with just a small bite, the brat won’t live long enough to see the sun.” Ci Yu smiled seductively.
Hua Qian Gu suddenly felt cold sweats breaking out on her back, the uneasy feeling caused her to feel nervous. She was surprised to see the newcomer retrieved hundreds of bows of various sizes from his internal coffer.
Hua Qian Gu silently groaned, although they were powerful they could not do anything because of the music from the Fu Xi Zither, but crossbows did not need to use mystic arts. How long could she withstand waves upon waves of arrows?
Kuang Ye Tian gestured with his hand, 100 crossbows straightened, each bow shot out 100 arrows at the same time, with ferocious accuracy, covering a long distance. He used incredible speed to rip apart the night sky, thousands of arrows shot forward as if to kill everyone on Mount Tai Bai.
“Everyone quickly retreat inside the main hall, close all the doors!” Hua Qian Gu yelled at Luo Shi Yi’s group.
Not daring to slow down for even a second, her hands rapidly plucked through the strings to put up a resistance barrier, the music and arrows collided, arrows upon arrows snapped apart in the air.
But the arrows continued raining down, without a moment of respite.
Hua Qian Gu used her remaining internal energy, flying up into the air alone to push back the thick shower of terrifying arrows, gritting her teeth to hold on. The sky gradually brightened, the sun slowly rose up on the horizon. At the critical moment, Hua Qian Gu suddenly felt pain in her shoulder, her hands went limp, she could not play the zither anymore.
A moment later, the shower of arrows rained down heavily without any impediment. Hua Qian Gu was hit by three arrows, the first two pierced her stomach and leg. The third arrow pierced her shoulder, she fell down from the sky in pain, using her last ounce of strength to hide the Fu Xi Zither into her internal coffer.
She was doomed, she did not think she would die from the shower of arrows, she had not seen Teacher for the last time, she did not want to die!
A burst of light suddenly enveloped her, she looked down, it came from the disciples of Mount Tai Bai and Luo Shi Yi, Shuo Feng, Ni Man Tian helping to push back the arrows. Xiao Hong and Xiao Bai felt their superior was in trouble and arrived with a group of evil spirits to help.
“Change to fire arrows!” Kuang Ye Tian ordered, an endless barrage of arrows like shooting stars flashed across the sky.
Without the Fu Xi Zither to hinder them, the monsters and demons swarmed forward. Three thousand disciples of Mount Tai Bai stormed into battle against the monsters and demons, the lights from the fire illuminated the weapons, the scene was gruesome.
Hua Qian Gu floated in the air, the light barrier was from the power of Luo Shi Yi, Shuo Feng and the others, but now they were occupied with fighting the monsters and demons, who knew how long the barrier would last.
Hua Qian Gu looked at her fingernails slowly turning black, knowing she was poisoned, but she did not have any strength left. Hua Qian Gu slowly circulated the internal energy that Teacher had given her to stop the spread of the poison, struggling not to lose consciousness.
“Quickly retreat into the main hall!” Qing Shui shouted while flying up to her, wanting to pull her into the main hall.
“Be careful, behind you!” Hua Qian Gu shouted in alarm.
Qing Shui was pulling her and could not avoid it, the light barrier was protecting them, but an arrow still pierced her arm.
“I’m fine, why are you poisoned? Is it serious? Where are the blood clotting herbs and Hui Qing pills? Take them out!”
Hua Qian Gu weakly retrieved them from her internal coffer, Qing Shui quickly fed them to her, seeing even Hua Qian Gu’s lips turned black, she knew this was not a light poison, panicking and close to crying.
“Qian Gu, don’t scare me, reinforcement is coming, Zun Shang is flying here, you have to hang on!”
Hua Qian Gu tried to open her eyes: “Teacher? Teacher is really coming?”
“Yes, he sent an echo message from thousands of miles away asking Luo Shi Yi about the fighting, it seems Lan Yu Lan Feng used a holy instrument to block him, which is why he’s delayed. Zun Shang already seized the the holy instrument, he’s flying here as fast as he can, you need to hang on, he’ll be here soon!”
Hua Qian Gu was heavily poisoned, but she knew this type of poison from Ci Yu and how to get rid of it, the problem was she could not find herbs now to make a cure so had to rely on her internal energy to suppress it, not knowing how long she could continue like this. She suddenly realized something, using all of her strength to push Qing Shui away.
“Qing Shui, leave quickly!”
Qing Shui did not know what was happening, suddenly seeing someone in green appearing where she had stood.
“I can’t believe you’re still alert.” Ci Yu licked her fingers, she almost succeeded in pulling out that girl’s heart.
Hua Qian Gu did not have the Fu Xi Zither for defense, knowing their priority was to catch her, then pull out her heart and organs to search for the holy instruments in her internal coffer.
“You’re still not dead yet?” Ci Yu looked at her with interest, no one could last this long after being poisoned by her.
“How funny, my body is immortal, how can a little poison from you harm me?” Hua Qian Gu stared at her.
Qing Shui wanted to fly up to help but was held back by Yun Yin.
Ci Yu nodded and laughed: “Right, right, right! Wait until I pull out your heart, then I’ll see what your immortal heart is made of!”
Ci Yu’s hand pushed through the light barrier, appearing before Hua Qian Gu’s chest in the blink of an eye. A purple light suddenly flashed, she looked down to see that her arm was cut off.
Stunned for a moment, she looked at Hua Qian Gu, who was struggling for breath, and could not stop laughing: “How great, how great, you’re severely poisoned but can still control your sword. You cut off two of my arms today, my name isn’t Ci Yu if I don’t avenge this!”
Ci Yu’s eyes suddenly turned blood red, her mouth opened to reveal a tongue that was long like a snake’s tongue. The rest of the six arms, one arm squeezed Hua Qian Gu’s throat, four arms took a hold of the arms and legs as if to tear the body into five pieces, the last arm was preparing to dig into Hua Qian Gu’s left chest to pull out the heart.
Hua Qian Gu was gripped firmly, her entire body in pain, thinking to herself this was it.
A voice suddenly rang out filled with authority and anger: “You don’t want to keep you other six arms?”
Ci Yu was surprised, her arms and legs suddenly trembled, not having a chance to react before a light sharp like a blade flashed forward, chopping off the rest of her six arms. She was in extreme pain, falling to the ground.
Nothing held Hua Qian Gu up so she slowly fell down, the red sun was rising slowly on the horizon. Hua Qian Gu looked up, the figure was dressed in red, riding on a phoenix, the purple hair flew, like an emperor surveying the world below, who else could it be except Sha Qian Mo.
“Jiejie……” Hua Qian Gu was touched, everything before her eyes went black, she could not hold on any longer.
She suddenly fell into a man’s warm embrace, a glance showed the hem of a white robe.
Teacher? Could it be Teacher? Teacher finally arrived!
She struggled to open her eyes, a silver light shined her way, she saw the warmest smile, the most beautiful smile in the world.
“Dong Fang? Dong Fang?! Why are you here? It’s very dangerous! Leave!” Hua Qian Gu was surprised to see him and felt a little disappointed.
Dong Fang Yu Qing did not say anything, only smiled and quickly sealed her major acupoints, then put something into her mouth, she fainted and did not know anything else.
