736 Cloning Card
"Bloody, I can't stand it anymore!"
Lin Huang immediately contacted Bloody. Since he was not even immortal-level, it was unrealistic for him to confront an immortal-level rank-9 that possessed the ability of an imperial-level. He could not summon any other monsters aside from Bloody since Bai and the rest were only immortal-level rank-3. They would be easily killed by Zhu Xing, especially since he was a supreme genius.
Seeing that Zhu Xing getting ready to attack him, Lin Huang had no choice but to lift his God Crasher to aim at Zhu Xing's body once more, covering it in flames.
Immediately after another shot was fired, Lin Huang immediately summoned the Golden Wheel to flee but as he pushed against the door, a black glow suddenly flashed through the sky and hit his Golden Wheel before he managed to enter. The force from the strike blew the dimensional relic away.
"Are you going to escape now? It's a bit too late, isn't it? Zhu Xing's body appeared hundreds of meters away, grinning from ear to ear as he looked at Lin Huang from afar.
Lin Huang's expression changed. Despite not taking any damage after that attack, the Golden Wheel was now thousands of meters away, putting a stop to Lin Huang's plan to escape.
"It seems like you're out of tricks up those sleeves. Instead of making these useless efforts, I'll spare you and kill you here." Zhu Xing picked up his sword and without bothering to use any movement skills, he reappeared in front of Lin Huang within mere moments with his sword dashing toward Lin Huang.
Lin Huang could not defend against the attack and was about to get killed. However, right before Zhu Xing's sword touched Lin Huang's body, Zhu Xing frowned.
Lin Huang's body was cut in half but there was no blood dripping from his wound. Then, his severed body gradually began to fade.
"Is it a fake?!"
Zhu Xing immediately turned back and looked around to find Lin Huang appearing at the location of the dimensional relic thousands of meters away. However, he did not push open the door. Instead, he put it away and laughed at Zhu Xing, "Do you think that you're the only one who can fake your death? I did this a few years ago."
"Aren't you're going to run away now?" Zhu Xing was instantly on alert.
"There's no need for me to do such a thing." Lin Huang said and pointed behind Zhu Xing.
As Zhu Xing turned his head around, he saw flocks of birds covering the sky like dark clouds appearing once again in mid-air. It was several times more than the number of birds he summoned earlier. Apart from that, the sound of hooves clicking on the ground could be heard as well.
He then looked at Lin Huang with a strange expression. "You're not using spirit type skills. Be it illusion or the spiritual control, it's impossible for you to control this amount of monsters remotely. To be able to control such a large number of monsters at such a distance... This reminds me of the parasites… Who are you?!"
Zhu Xing was not that far from the truth based on the information he had. Lin Huang's eyes flashed with fear.
However, Zhu Xing ran out of time to continue thinking about it. The birds in the sky were approaching and were quickly surrounding him.
"He's quite fearsome. He's able to accurately guess that this was the ability of the parasites." Even Bloody was in fear of him.
"He has to die or we'll be in great trouble!" A flicker of fury flashed through Lin Huang's eyes. Zhu Xing was a huge threat to him. If he was not killed, he would get them into bigger trouble in the future. "Fortunately, you've completed decoding the rune or I'll have to escape. I've even used a Cloning Card just now to buy me some time."
"Isn't it your God Crasher charged? You can launch another two attacks. Why didn't you use it?" Bloody asked.
"The two attacks are for emergencies. I have four Cloning Cards so I won't feel that bad after using them. Moreover, I didn't have an idea how long you'd need to decode the rune. You only told me you were done with it after the Cloning Card has been used, and I was about to flee.
After being surrounded by the swarm of birds for a while, the monster horde arrived.
More than 10,000 monsters surrounded the entire region, making it extremely crowded. Lin Huang then retreated hundreds of meters away to watch the battle in the air.
"How long does he need to get rid of the monsters?" Lin Huang asked.
"He'll have to be fast. He knows that the longer he takes, the more dangerous his situation will be in. He doesn't know if you have any other skills. That's why he'll kill the monster horde at lighting fast speed just like what he did previously. He'll try his best to minimize the use of Life Power so he can still handle any unknown dangers he might encounter." Bloody gave its explanation.
Just thirty seconds after Bloody finished speaking, all the monsters surrounding Zhu Xing had been killed. All the birds in the sky fell to the ground.
Amidst the carcasses, a human figure could be seen holding a gradually fading horn. Lin Huang noticed blood dripping from between Zhu Xing's fingers.
"I can confirm that the horn is a God-tier item. It was owned by Wu Zhi tens of thousands of years ago. Therefore, that item can still be activated with ease by relying on the blood sacrifice skill after many years. The demigod relic has no spirit. Therefore, it won't be able to recognize its host after tens of thousands of years and he won't be able to activate it with the blood sacrifice skill."
"Although the blood sacrifice only drains a portion of his Life Power, it still puts a huge burden on his body. I think he can probably activate it twice at most. He's probably exhausted now." Noticing the blood dripping from Zhu Xing's finger, Bloody continued its analysis.
"Regardless of the skill that he has used, it's not what an ordinary person can do. He managed to activate that God-tier item twice with the body of an immortal-level. It's a miracle that he can still stand." Lin Huang knew that Zhu Xing could not stand it any longer.
"However, you have to be careful. Since he activated the God-tier item with a blood sacrifice, he's really eager to obtain the Sorcerer Goddess' inheritance from you." Bloody reminded him.
"The decoding rune has been created. I'll be able to break his molting rune as long as I can touch his body. However, I'll need your assistance. He has to be within three meters from you. If it's possible, it'll be best if he's within one meter from your body. The probability of touching him will be much higher at such a distance. The further he is, it'll increase the chances of me getting discovered, making our success rate smaller. It's the only chance we have. If we fail, he'll know of my existence and he'll be on alert."
"However, this is quite risky. Approaching Zhu Xing who's impeccable in Sword Dao is extremely dangerous. You can't activate the God Crasher when he's more than three meters away from you. If you miss the chance, he'll be able to kill you in one hit."
"I know. Don't worry. I'll use the Cloning Card if anything happens." Even if Bloody did not mention this, Lin Huang knew the risks he was taking. Since he was trained in the sword, he knew how dangerous it was to approach a person who had mastered the sword. Zhu Xing's combat strength could completely pin him down.
"Alright. Once his molting rune is decoded. I'll inform you and you'll have to activate the God Crasher to kill him immediately!"
