Wuxiaworld > God of Slaughter > 389 I Know Them
Shi Yan was standing at a castle window with the two brothers looking out towards the surrounding Four Symbols mountain range. He could clearly see the four mountains exploding and seeming to have some terrible changes.
Waves of beast roars came up from the four mountains. It seemed that countless dormant beasts in the Four Symbols mountain range were about to rush into the ancient city and crush all warriors into powder.
As the beasts roared, lightning gradually flashed from the Azure Dragon mountain in the east and then slowly flew over. From the White Tiger mountain in the west, violent tornados raged and churned up, slaughtering and destroying anything in their path. The tornados pulled huge lava rocks up to the sky, each block containing a horrendous power.
From the Vermillion Bird Mountain in the south, clusters of fire started to rage, dyeing the entire sky dark red, as if the sky were also being burned by the scorching fire.
The Black Turtle Mountain in the north was flooded with ice and extremely thick snowflakes. In just one breath, the Black Turtle Mount was covered with dense, white snow.
Changes continuously happened in the four mountains, probably affected by ancient formations. Lightning, tornados, flames, and snow continued spreading towards the ancient city, getting closer and closer.
The four mountains constantly changed, which made the hiding beasts suddenly become crazy.
Amidst those ear-piercing roars, hundreds of sixth and seventh level beasts scattered out from the mountains. Their eyes were filled with brutality while they rushed towards the ancient city in a craze.
Giant three-headed alligators, silver demon wolves, and single-horned dragon pythons, those which were rarely seen, now showed up one by one. Groups of beasts stormed out like a surging tide, quickly invading the ancient city.
Seeing the changes in the Four Symbols mountain range, many warriors inside the ancient city’s stone fortresses were quite horrified, and instantly went out of the castles, wearing solemn faces as they watched the beasts attacking aggressively. They all stayed on high alert.
"Be careful. It seems that the peculiar change of this miasma place is about to begin." Ai Ya tightly knitted her eyebrows, "The beasts will outnumber the warriors. If we are careless, those beasts will immediately besiege us, and it will be difficult for us to escape."
Cai Yi, Lao Li, and Lao Lun watched the influx of the beasts with serious faces while taking out secret treasures from their Storage rings, preparing to deal with them.
Other groups of warriors were still hiding inside the castles, standing firmly at the entrance while watching the beasts rushing over from the ground and the sky. Everyone was wearing heavy faces.
These beasts seemed to know the ancient city’s situation. As soon as they rushed into the ancient city, they immediately spread out to all the places the warriors could have been hiding in the castle.
The stone castles had many windows, but simply couldn’t stop the beasts that could fly. Those flying beasts used their brutal force to tear down the fence of windows and then drilled into the castle to search for warriors. Beasts had an extreme hostility towards the invasion of the human warriors. Their mission seemed to be to kill all human warriors.
Ten sixth-level Green Armored Scale Falcons and three seventh-level Single-horned Pythons drilled through the windows towards the stone castle of Shi Yan’s group. The Green Armored Scale Falcons had the ability to fly with a pointy beak, thick skin, and sword-like sharp claws that emitted dense, icy lights.
These Green Armored Scale Falcon had many scales on their bodies. Those scales couldn't be damaged by the majority of hacking weapons, and thus, it was challenging to cope with.
The seventh level Single-horned Dragon Python was even more terrible. The horn of a Single-horned Dragon Python was all-conquering, which could be compared to divine weapons which had been forged and refined hundreds of times. The Dragon Python’s saliva was highly toxic, and could utilize the power of frost. Once the Single-horned Dragon Python got close to a person, its saliva and the power of frost would be spurted out together. Even the defensive halos released by Sky Realm warriors couldn’t stop that highly toxic saliva, which could dissolve many kinds of defenses. The power of frost could greatly weaken the defensive halos as well.
When the defensive halos disappeared after a blink, a Single-horned Dragon Python would dash over, tearing apart and destroying the warriors.
Unless warriors had gone through a special body refining cultivation, Single-horned Dragon Pythons would strike them and pierce through their bodies.
Ten Green Armored Scale Falcons and three Single-horn Dragon Pythons spread out and quickly rushed toward Shi Yan’s group. It only took them a short while to find the whereabouts of the five people. They immediately aggregated and rushed toward them.
"Three Single-horned Dragon Pythons and ten Green Armored Scale Falcons!" Ai Ya couldn’t help but scream out loud while her face changed dramatically. "Not good. These beasts are coming together. I am afraid that we are not able to beat them in batches. Everyone must cast out your full-power shots to kill all of these beasts in the shortest possible time at all cost. The more beasts come, the less chance we have to get out alive. Lightning, flames, tornados, and ice are slowly moving towards the ancient city. If we can’t handle all of these beasts in a short time, it will be more difficult for us when they come from the four mountains and envelope the ancient city." Cai Yi’s face stiffened. Three silhouettes suddenly flashed up in another stone castle which was a few hundred meters away on the left. After those three people had gone outside, they worriedly looked around and immediately dashed towards Shi Yan’s group.
The three of them were two males and one female. The two men were seventy-year-old warriors and dressed in flower-blouses. Their faces now looked odd as the beasts were chasing them, looking miserable.
The girl was in the front of the two men. She was long-limbed, wearing a light yellow skirt with white teeth and shining eyes. She was incredibly beautiful.
These three people seemed to have realized that the beasts that had jumped into their stone castle were too strong and had known that if they stayed, they would have been killed. Hence, they ran out of the stone castle to find someone that they could join forces with to deal with these beasts.
Behind the three of them, ten beasts rushed out of the stone castle, showing fangs and claws, letting out crazy roars and staring at them.
"Grandpa, hurry up!" The girl anxiously called out. Her body suddenly changed and separated into five phantoms, escaping in four directions.
Her true body hovered and swayed in the air. A vigorous flow of aura burst out from her body, and then she suddenly rushed towards Shi Yan.
Seeing those three people rushing over, the faces of Lao Li and Ai Ya instantly changed at the same time. They couldn’t help but curse.
The three of them, who couldn’t cope with the beasts, brought the beasts into Shi Yan’s castle and borrowed their strength to deal with them.
It was already difficult for the five people of Shi Yan’s group to deal with the ten Green Armored Scale Falcons and three Single-horned Dragon Pythons. If they added the beasts behind those three people, they would become more passive, and perhaps would get killed.
Lao Li and Cai Yi exchanged glances; cold lights flowed out from their eyes. They were ready to cast a fatal strike, rushing towards the girl to exterminate her.
This girl only had a cultivation base of the Earth Realm. Although she was mysterious, as long as Lao Li and Cai Yi released their full shots, that girl would certainly not be able to stop them, and would be beheaded.
Shi Yan turned his back to Lao Li and Cai Yi, consistently releasing his power into the Gravitational Field. Hearing the girl’s shout, he suddenly showed a very puzzled look.
After completing the Gravitational Field, Shi Yan turned around and saw Cai Yi and Lao Li ready to kill the girl.
"Stop!" Shi Yan threw a quick glance at that girl, and his face immediately changed. He hastily shouted which stopped Cai Yi and Lao Li.
Both of them were stunned. The energy waves on their hands were getting more vibrant. They were still urging their power to be ready to cast out their strikes. As long as they pushed out those energy waves, that girl would hardly stand a chance.
Shi Yan shouted out loud, making Cai Yi and Lao Li freeze. They both displayed a puzzled look on their faces, not understanding why he stopped them at the crucial time.
The girl exclaimed; her eyes flashed up with strange lights. She looked at Shi Yan, seemed to remember someone, and then pointed to Shi Yan and said unsurely, " You, you are…?"
"Zuo Shi, it’s been a long time since I’ve seen you," Shi Yan revealed a faint smile. "How did you get here?"
"You are Shi Yan? Are you really Shi Yan?" Zuo Shi was overjoyed with an expression of disbelief. "Didn’t you already return to the Endless Sea? Why did you come back here?" The two elderly men behind Zuo Shi were grandfather Zuo of the Zuo family and that misty mountain range’s Chi Xiao.
Seeing Zuo Shi shout in surprise, the two men also looked at Shi Yan and showed a very surprised expression.
"Come here first, and then we can talk later." Shi Yan shouted, nodded towards Cai Yi and Lao Li, and said, "I know them. Let them come in."
Cai Yi’s and Lao Li’s faces looked reluctant, but they still followed Shi Yan’s command without any defiance. They frowned while stepping aside, giving way to Zuo Shi to enter the stone castle first.
Shi Yan’s mind was slightly triggered. The Gravitational Field, which had been amassed for a long time, suddenly flew toward Zuo Xu and Chi Xiao. The five huge three-headed alligators, which were closely chasing Zuo Xu and Chi Xiao, were suddenly sucked into the Golden Silks inside that crazily spinning Gravitational Field. Those Golden Silks were extremely sharp, and as soon as the three-headed alligators were pulled into the Gravitational Field, they were cut up and crushed into powder.
"Demon Crystals!"
Chi Xiao and Zuo Xu were both surprised and cheerfully shouted together. They looked at the Demon Crystals, revealing a look of desire.
These three people should have gone through unwanted situations in the Dark Magnetic Noxious Mist. When the five Demon Crystals appeared, Chi Xiao and Zuo Xu obviously couldn’t keep calm and even stopped, wanting to go into the Dark Magnetic Noxious Mist to take them.
"Do not touch those Demon Crystals. Come here first!" Shi Yan shouted out loud.
Zuo Xu and Chi Xia were startled. They immediately reacted and rushed over.
"How did you get here?" Shi Yan shouted.
"There’s a nautical chart on Little Shi's Dragon Turtle Armor. We based our directions on the chart to get here all the way from the Merchant Union. On the way here, we lost a lot of people. After entering this place, there are only three of us left." Chi Xiao’s face was sad. He shouted, and together with Zuo Xu, he walked toward the platform where Shi Yan’s group was standing.
"Shi Yan, how come you are here? Oh, your cultivation base is now in the Third Sky of Nirvana Realm, the same as mine?" The head of the Zuo family, Zuo Xu, suddenly screamed out while his eyes glimmered with a trace of incredulity.
Chi Xiao and Zuo Shi were also startled.
