559 Flowing Wind, Flying Snow
AGM 559 – Flowing Wind, Flying Snow
“He’s here, Di Shi has arrived. That maiden with a cultivation base at the sixth level of Heavenly Dipper didn’t even stand a chance. She died instantly.” From afar, the hearts of everyone were thunderstruck as they saw that approaching beam of azure light. Not long ago, they had already witnessed how strong Li Tian was. Yet to think that they even had the chance to see Di Shi now. Given Di Shi’s temperament, and how his younger brother was on the verge of being killed, how could he still care for the opponent’s status? So what if you were a saint child or holy maiden. This group of people would soon be in a miserable state.
That beam of azure light was extremely quick. Although it hadn’t arrived at its target, Qin Wentian could already feel a stifling pressure gushing his way. The baleful aura from that azure light felt as though it could tear apart the heavens, causing Qin Wentian to feel a strong sense of threat from it.
“Careful!” Mo Qingcheng’s eyes stiffened when she saw what was happening. She advanced forwards as she cried out her warning to Qin Wentian.
Qin Wentian’s countenance turned ice-cold. Stepping out, he finished executing the last step of Seven Annihilation Swordplay in combination with a swing of his King Sword astral nova, slicing towards the beam of azure light. Instantly, a boundless sword might centered around his opponent as it madly lacerated the air. The sword intent emanating forth felt sharp enough to penetrate directly through anything.
The shrill cry of a bird sounded out, the baleful qi exuding forth from that beam of azure light formed into terrifying whirlpools glimmering with a powerful force. Its attack actually passed through the wall of boundless sword qi, directly gushing towards the King Sword astral nova.
Qin Wentian’s King Sword was instantly knocked back. That beam of light transformed into the sharp of a gigantic claw as it swooped down from the air with indomitable force and overwhelming speed, targeted to seize Qin Wentian.
Qin Wentian instantly felt as though the movement of his entire body was being sealed. The projection of a ferocious primordial bird appeared above him, glaring at him as the terrifying pressure from it engulfed the entire space. It wasn’t as though he had never met a seventh-level Heavenly Dipper Sovereign before. Back when he fought against Ye Kongfan, he had clearly felt how powerful seventh-level Heavenly Dipper Sovereigns were.
However, if Ye Kongfan were to be compared to this man in front of him, Ye Kongfan’s strength was akin to a flickering candle flame compared to the radiant sun. The difference was just too vast.
This was an expert worthy enough to be proclaimed as an era-suppressing genius. Unrivalled at the same level, jumping levels was as effortless as flipping over a palm for them.
Qin Wentian’s bloodline instantly erupted completely with power. He slashed out with his Scarlet Demon Halberd with neither sound nor presence as the halberd actually vanished. A moment later, a thunderous boom rang out as the Scarlet Demon Halberd directly clashed against that beam of azure light. The terrifying rebound force forced Qin Wentian backwards. The bones of the arms he used to hold the Scarlet Demon Halberd trembled violently as though they were about to shatter as waves of excruciating agony and pain flooded through him.
Borrowing the force of this rebound, Qin Wentian executed Stellar Transposition and instantly fled backwards. However, he only saw an azure-colored figure floating in the air exuding an unrivalled aura. The person’s eyes flashed with tyrannical power, akin to the eyes of primordial birds of prey, even sharper than the edge of blades, and felt as though they could penetrate past anything human.
A wind gusted by, Di Shi didn’t continue attacking Qin Wentian. He went straight to his brother Di Yu, instead. Currently Di Yu was being supported by someone; it was unknown how many meridians and arterial channels in his body had already been destroyed. He had only a single breath of life remaining; if Di Shi had come any later, he would have already died.
Retrieving an azure-colored bottle, Di Shi took a pill from within it and fed it to Di Yu. A moment later, a pure energy circulated through Di Yu’s body, and the spectators all could clearly feel his life force getting many times stronger. At the very least, his life was preserved now. But when they thought of what a miserable plight Di Yu was forced into today, they couldn’t help but sigh endlessly.
Di Yu was simply known as a tyrant throughout the Royal Sacred Region. Even when he knew the people he encountered today were from the Medicine Sovereign Valley, he didn’t give a damn and yet ended up in such a pathetic state. The onlookers wondered if Di Yu would retract his tyrannical ways and change his personality after he recovered. After all, if Di Shi hadn’t rushed here in time today, Di Yu would definitely have died.
If Di Yu died, even if Di Shi slaughtered the whole lot of them to avenge him, it would still be useless to a dead man.
More and more people gathered around the area, staring at the confrontation with interest in their eyes. Di Shi’s gaze was burning with cold fury. Di Yu stared at his brother as he weakly stated, “Brother, help me kill them. Kill them all.”
“Don’t worry, I will get revenge for you,” Di Shi calmly replied, yet an immense murderous rage could be heard within his calm voice. He stared at the bodyguards as he commanded, “Protect the young master well.”
“Yes sir.” The bodyguards respectfully replied as they guarded Di Yu. Di Shi then took a step away, turning his gaze towards everyone as a violent aura erupted forth from him. His body radiated azure light as the projection of a primordial bird appeared behind him. This was none other than the image of an azure roc.
He locked his eyes onto Qin Wentian as he coldly spoke, “You must be courting death.”
One could clearly feel the waves of anger radiating from Di Shi. In the Royal Sacred Region, everyone knew that Di Shi doted greatly on this equally-talented younger brother of his. Although these opponents were extraordinary, with the Holy Maiden of the Medicine Sovereign Valley mixed within, Di Shi didn’t gave a damn. As an era-suppressing genius, there was no need to doubt his talent and overwhelming combat strength. How could he be restricted by things like the status of his opponents?
“Be careful.” Yun Mengyi spoke in a low voice as their group also advanced forwards and stood next to Qin Wentian. They could all sense how mighty Di Shi was. It was highly probable that no one here would be able to block Di Shi alone.
Qin Wentian clutched the Scarlet Demon Halberd in his hands tightly. This was the first time he had fought against an era-suppressing genius, and the cultivation base of this man was also higher than his own by two entire levels. During their clash earlier, he already understood that he had no way to contend against Di Shi. Yet for some reason, the battle intent radiating from him had never ceased.
Era-suppressing geniuses, they were the targets he sought after. Deep within his bones and blood, there was no fear, only excitement.
“This fellow…” The spectators were all dumbstruck when they sensed the battle intent radiating from Qin Wentian. This man was a madman, he was only at the fifth level of Heavenly Dipper and although the power of his bloodline wasn’t weak, he had to see clearly who his opponent was, right? His opponent was Di Shi! An era-suppressing genius that had even killed ninth-level Heavenly Dipper Sovereigns before!
Di Shi’s claim to fame was that when he was at the sixth level of Heavenly Dipper, he had been surrounded by experts from an extremely powerful sect. The Chosen in that sect were at the seventh and eighth level of Heavenly Dipper respectively, yet when they engaged in a battle against Di Shi, all of them were completely wiped out. From then on, Di Shi’s name shook the entire Royal Sacred Region and he had earned the name of an era-suppressing genius.
Against such a terrifying character, Qin Wentian actually radiated battle intent? How could the spectators not be shocked?
Di Shi moved, he didn’t waste time with words and directly acted. His eyes glittered with a fearsome light; his speed was as fast as lightning, quicker by a large margin then Qin Wentian. A faint image of an azure roc appeared behind his back, as his entire body transformed into a beam of azure light. His palms blasted downwards, and just that single simple attack from him was sufficient to push Qin Wentian into a precarious position, causing his entire person to be enveloped by an overwhelming pressure.
“Fiend Transformation Art!” Qin Wentian willed as his physique underwent a mighty transformation. He advanced instead of retreating, rushing straight at Di Shi. Considering Di Shi’s speed, it was impossible for him to keep evading. In that case, he chose to clash directly.
“DIE!” Qin Wentian roared, his Scarlet Demon Halberd unleashed a terrifying amount of dreamforce that gushed straight towards his opponent’s consciousness. However, Di Shi’s mind was like a wall of iron. Baleful light flashed in his eyes, his resoluteness was unshaken; the dreamscape of Qin Wentian couldn’t affect him. In his eyes that were flickering with killing intent, it was as though only a single word existed there – death.
Azure light flashed as that gigantic bird claw directly blocked the attack from the Scarlet Demon Halberd, clutching it tightly in its grip. The Scarlet Demon Halberd was a divine weapon that focused on dreamforce, but Qin Wentian’s current strength still couldn’t fully unleash the potential of his halberd yet. Although the halberd augmented his own dream will, he wasn’t strong enough to influence Di Shi yet.
But even so, considering the sharpness of the halberd in addition to Qin Wentian’s strength, a normal strike from it was already extremely terrifying. Who could have imagined that Di Shi would be able to so easily block his attack?
Di Shi grinned as he pulled to the side. Qin Wentian felt his entire arm trembling as the Scarlet Demon Halberd was forcibly removed and flung away in a random direction. The azure light transformed into a ferocious bird that shot straight towards Qin Wentian. Its power was strong enough to tear Qin Wentian into pieces.
“Freeze,” Yun Mengyi coldly snorted as the will of her Mandate descended onto Di Shi. However, her strength wasn’t able to completely stop his attack.
“THUNDERGOD SLASH!” Chu Mang and Ouyang Kuangsheng simultaneously unleashed their attacks causing two gigantic blades of thunder to cut down from the heavens, blasting towards Di Shi.
However, Di Shi didn’t even glance at them. These two were only at the fourth level of Heavenly Dipper. Even if their attacks were powerful, how could they be powerful enough to threaten him?
Astral light flashed as Qin Wentian transformed into blurry shadows as he retreated with explosive speed.
“Where do you think you are going?” Di Shi coldly snorted. A terrifying pressure again engulfed Qin Wentian completely. Qin Wentian felt as though he was stuck in a quagmire, even Stellar Transposition was useless now.
“GET LOST!” Qin Wentian’s yuanfu seethed and churned as he stabbed a single finger outwards. Instantly, a chaotic flood of sword qi concentrated on his finger tip, transforming instantly into a tempest that shot towards Di Shi, wanting to devour him within.
Di Shi frowned as he blasted his palms downwards. Numerous projections of ferocious primordial birds screeched in anger as they dove through that chaotic sword qi, lunging straight for Qin Wentian’s body.
“Puchi!” Blood splashed in the air from a wound that appeared on Qin Wentian’s chest. At the same instant, he finally left the attacking radius of Di Shi as he rapidly moved backwards.
“What a tyrannical strength, I have no way to fight head on with him.” Qin Wentian’s battle intent never diminished. But, he had to admit that he wasn’t Di Shi’s match. An era-suppressing genius was truly powerful, and wasn’t a character someone like Ye Kongfan could be compared to.
“You will die here today without a doubt.” Di Shi continued advancing, yet at this moment a brilliant arc of sword qi slashed past the space, aiming right at Di Shi. Di Shi raised his palms and slammed them out violently, colliding directly with that arc of sword qi. However, he actually failed. That sword qi slashed apart his palm imprint and continued on its way towards Di Shi.
“Mhm?” Di Shi’s brows twitched as his aura got increasingly baleful. He slammed out his palms once again causing an azure light to flash, colliding once more with the sword qi. Only then did that sword qi dissipate.
A beam of light zoomed over, the source instantly appearing before Di Shi. The entire body of this person radiated sword intent, making it so that he resembled a real sword. Although he couldn’t be considered handsome, he gave off an extraordinary aura that contained traces of pride of being an absolute genius.
“Ji Feixue (Flying Snow) from the Battle Sword Sect.” Di Shi contemplated this newcomer. This was the first time he had met someone who shared the same title as him.
“He’s Ji Feixue?” The expressions of the spectators faltered.
“Wow, it’s so lively here.” From afar, laughter rang out. The spectators turned around to see an absolute beauty appearing there. The beauty of this maiden could even be compared to the Holy Maiden from the Medicine Sovereign Valley. That soul-stirring countenance contained a gentle fragileness causing the hearts of people to bloom with the desire to embrace her protectively.
“Lin Xian`er, she’s here as well.”
This new arrival was indeed Lin Xian`er. The spectators only saw her smiling at Qin Wentian as she spoke, “Sir Qin is truly extraordinary, your actions actually causing three era-suppressing geniuses to appear here.”
As the sound of her voice faded, the spectators glanced at each other while feeling confused in their hearts. Three era-suppressing geniuses? Other than Di Shi and Ji Feixue, was there one more?
Even Di Shi and Ji Feixue started glancing around. Very swiftly, in a certain direction far away, they saw a character clad in white flying towards their location. Just a single glance was sufficient to tell that this person was extraordinary. He exuded an unmatchable demeanor and was exceedingly handsome.
“The flowing wind isn’t outstanding, the calm lake severs the moon. Yi shooting the nine heavens – Gu Liufeng (Flowing Wind),” Ji Feixue murmured, as an expression of admiration appeared on his face. This man, among the eight absolute era-suppressing geniuses, was the one he admired the most!
Ji Feixue (季飞雪) – Ji季 is a common surname, fei飞 stands for Flying, Xue雪 stands for snow. → Ji Flying Snow
Gu Liufeng (顾流风) – Gu顾 is a surname, Liu流 stands for flowing, Feng风 stands for wind. → Gu Flowing Wind
流风不风流 → this is a palindrome，平湖断月“The flowing wind(流风) isn’t outstanding/lustful/talented(风流), the calm lake severs the moon.
Yi shooting down the nine heavens → The Yi here is a reference to Hou Yi, a legendary archer that shot down nine suns. You can read more about his story in ‘Desolate Era.’
