Immortal Path to Heaven
Chapter 1088 - Fighting a 3-Marked Ancient Shaman
After hearing what Lil’ Red said, Ou Yangming’s head seemed to be shrouded in a black fog. With a dark face, he questioned, “Snatch?” There seemed to be some displeasure in his tone. Moreover, he looked at Lil’ Red with a smile that was not a smile. There was an indescribable look in his eyes.
Lil’ Red immediately understood and shook his head like a rattle drum. With a faint smile, he asked, “Snatch? Who said that we’re going to snatch the origin of time? Hmph, did you say it?” He looked at Big Yellow with a disdainful look.
Big Yellow was flabbergasted but after thinking for a moment, he still forcefully took the blame. Perhaps with his strength at the moment, he could contend with Lil’ Red. Nonetheless, after many years of being together, he had had the habit of giving in. This was not something that could be changed in a day.
Lil’ Red curled its lips and said, “Borrow—we’re borrowing it!” As he said that, he blinked. No matter how one looked at it, the noble and proud phoenix had a wretched aura at this time.
Ou Yangming nodded and said, “Yes, we’re borrowing it.”
The young fellow and the 2 beasts exchanged glances, and the tacit understanding between them grew deeper.
Lil’ Red had also found the great path that he was fighting for. Perhaps no one would have thought that in the future, the great thief that would change the view of thieving in the Great Wide World had such a wretched past.
“Hurry up and leave. I can’t wait any longer.” Lil’ Red’s eyes were burning with flames as he urged softly.
Big Yellow also tilted his head and looked at Ou Yangming. He was eager to try.
To him, meeting Lil’ Ming was the biggest fortune of his life. He was originally a half-spirit beast of the Ni family. Without Ou Yangming, it would have been very difficult for him to become a Spiritualist, let alone a Venerable One who had the strength to become a Ruler.
Ou Yangming’s finger gently tapped on Lil’ Red’s forehead, and he said with a bitter smile, “You!”
Lil’ Red did not dodge and continued to smile.
Under the concealment of the great path of Yin and Yang, the young fellow and the beasts approached the origin of time without any danger.
Their auras seemed to have disappeared into the world. Even a 3-marked Ancient Shaman could only feel that something was not right but could not discover them.
Of course, this was also because the 3-marked Ancient Shaman would not release his mental power at any time. Otherwise, after careful inspection, even if Ou Yangming and his companions were hiding with the path of Yin and Yang, they would be found. Nevertheless, who would release their mental power at any time? Therefore, the 3 of them slowly approached the origin of time as if they were strolling in a garden.
Lil’ Red’s face was red from holding back. This feeling made him infatuated, and he felt as if his entire body had become transparent.
Looking at the bubbles in the sea, he was in a good mood. He hummed a folk song that had been widely sung in the Great Wide World.
He used his wings to poke one of the bubbles, and his eyes curved like crescent moons. He blew lightly on the murky air, and the densely packed bubbles condensed out of thin air, turning into an air bubble pillar that was as wide as a bucket. It swept up undercurrents and stirred up waves.
All of a sudden, a cold shout exploded in the sea.
“Who is it?” The reefs at the bottom of the sea collapsed, and a majestic aura rose. Many sharp water pillars spread out like fine needles from the bottom of the sea. They intertwined with each other and connected, forming a curtain made of water pillars and fine needles.
Immediately after, an Ancient Shaman woke up from his deep sleep.
He was at least 1.5 kilometers tall, and his skin was dry. Fine cracks criss-crossed on his skin, giving off a feeling that he was ancient.
In particular, between his eyebrows, 3 star marks seemed to have been left behind by splitting open the sky. They were so dazzling that it was difficult to describe them. With just a glance, one would feel like one had fallen into chaos.
“Don’t move, and don’t speak!” Ou Yangming glared at Lil’ Red.
Lil’ Red immediately lowered its head to look at the gravel below. He looked around and did not dare to speak as if he had done something wrong.
Seeing him like this, Ou Yangming did not have the heart to blame him. He circulated the great path of Yin and Yang to the extreme, hid himself, and slowly left as if he was treading on thin ice.
It was then when a powerful mental power swept over from afar. It was bone-chilling as if it could freeze one’s soul. Big Yellow and Lil’ Red’s bodies trembled at the same time, and cold air emerged from their pores.
Ou Yangming’s mind thudded. He knew that things were bad.
After all, this was a 3-marked Ancient Shaman, who was so strong that he was much stronger than an ordinary Ruler. On the other hand, Big Yellow and Lil’ Red were only close to a Ruler. It seemed like a slight difference, but the distance between them was like a natural chasm. They were simply incomparable.
As expected, before Ou Yangming’s thought was even gone, the mountainous fist came smashing over. It seemed to be able to shatter the heavens and crush the ground. This was a way of using force to destroy all things.
Wherever the fist force passed, the water flow was pushed out by an extreme force to both sides. It formed a vacuum zone in this unknown depth of the sea. All the water flow was blocked by an invisible wall of air. This scene that was rarely seen in 10,000 years was enough to make one’s heart turn cold.
This was how the Ancient Shamans broke the path with force.
Ou Yangming’s expression changed slightly, and he said, “Big Yellow, I’ll be the main attacker while you use the Flying Knives Formation to assist me from the side.” This was a work he was proud of after he had successfully refined it. He was confident that it would be able to shine with the light it deserved. Furthermore, Big Yellow was only assisting from the side. With the help of the Small Dragons’ World, the big yellow could activate 14 small formation maps to form a large formation map. His strength was not much weaker than that of an ordinary Ruler.
This was the power of equipment. It closed the gap between Big Yellow and a Ruler.
As for the explosive arrows, they were consumable items. The Ancient Shaman’s physical body was too strong, and a Ruler’s self-explosion might not be able to do anything to it.
With a flash of thought, Ou Yangming entered the states of the thoroughly meticulous and the connection between Heaven and man. Spiritual Qi surged in his Dantian Lake, and multicolored light shone. He circulated the spiritual power all over his body and raised his right arm. Without being particular at all, the young fellow struck out with his palm. Consequently, the air in front of his palm continued to compress, turning into a circle of light. Unconsciously, this palm contained the fist intent of the path of reincarnation. It was like a circle without a single flaw.
“Boom!” An explosion was heard.
The fist and the palm collided in the seawater. The seawater surged violently, and an ear-piercing sound wave was emitted.
Following that, it directly exploded as if a nuclear bomb had been thrown into the deep water. Undercurrents surged, and monstrous waves condensed and swept in all directions. Wherever they passed, all the bubbles were shattered.
Under this attack, the sea area within 50 kilometers fell into chaos.
Plenty of spirit fish did not even have the time to react before they turned into bloody mists.
At that moment, if anyone were to look down from the sky, they would be shocked to discover that a huge vortex had appeared in the sea region within several hundred kilometers. It was pulling in all the water and even the spiritual Qi in the area. It was like a majestic black hole that could devour everything in the world. If that was all there was to it, it would be fine. Having said that, after the vortex spun a few times, it suddenly lifted up a water peak that shot up into the sky from its core and crashed into the sky!
The waves surged. This scene was like the destruction of the world.
This was the might of the collision between Rulers’ fist and palm. It was so terrifying.
In the sea, Ou Yangming stepped on the waves and staggered back 7 to 8 steps. His Qi and blood surged. His eyes lit up, and he exclaimed softly, “What a remarkable power!”
It was worth noting that he had overcome 9 Heavenly Thunderbolts. His body was exceedingly powerful. Besides, after he fused the bloodlines of the Dragons, the Phoenixes, and the Upper Tribulations, his level of life became completely different. He had transformed from mortal to spirit. His strength, physical body, speed… All of them had significantly improved.
Even so, the Ancient Shaman’s punch still caused his Qi and blood to surge. One could imagine just how powerful he was.
Ou Yangming did not know that the shock the 3-marked Ancient Shaman experienced was no less than his. His internal organs started trembling slightly. There was only one thought left in his mind. ‘What kind of monster is this?’
He was born in the primal chaos, and he had roamed the Great Wide World for tens of thousands of years. He could fight against many people, and he had tortured and killed tens of thousands of races. However, he had never met a person whose physical body was on par with his. This was simply abnormal.
Taking advantage of the instant when the Ancient Shaman was adjusting his Qi momentum, Big Yellow struck with his thought.
1, 2, 3…
9 flying knives formed a small formation map and turned into the hilt of a long knife.
Immediately after, 9 flying knives flew out. In the blink of an eye, they formed a small formation map again and turned into a small section of a knife.
They were connected. Once they connected, the interspatial nodes lit up.
1, 2, 3… 14 formation maps combined right away, turning into a long saber that radiated cold light. Following Big Yellow’s will, it pounced toward the Ancient Shaman’s chest. The 13 nodes lit up at the same time, and the 14 small formation maps turned into a large formation.
The saber flashed, and it was like a shooting star with its tail piercing through the night sky. It was beautiful and marvelous.
Lil’ Red looked at this scene with a face full of envy. He thought to himself, ‘Lil’ Ming’s smithing skills can be ranked in the top 3 even among the Phoenixes, where smithing masters are everywhere.’ At the same time, his heart was filled with anticipation. ‘Big Yellow’s Flying Knives Formation is so powerful. I wonder how powerful the explosive arrows will be…’ With this thought in mind, even his eyes were smiling.
“Clack!” A saber-light tore through the air. This scene happened too quickly.
In a flash, the long saber formed from 9 small formations pierced into the Ancient Shaman’s heart.
That said, the Ancient Shaman’s physical body was too abnormal. It only collapsed a little inward. Next, the Ancient Shaman reacted. He raised both of his hands and pressed them together at the same time to clamp the long saber. At this time, the seawater shook, and the water current surged.
Blood flashed in Big Yellow’s eyes as he uttered coldly, “Formation, scatter!”
The long saber seemed to have been pulled by a mysterious force as it scattered at once.
It transformed into 14 small formation maps again. After a flash of white light, it disappeared from the Ancient Shaman’s hands and reappeared at his neck. It reassembled itself and stabbed ruthlessly at his throat!
On the other side, Ou Yangming was holding the Blood Spear Dragon Slayer in his hand. He circulated his spiritual power at the tip of the spear, and the strange runes on the spear began to jump like swimming tadpoles. The tyrannical power in his body surged into it, and he coldly shouted, “Take my Path Intent Spear!” The position he was aiming at was also the Ancient Shaman’s throat.
An unbreakable will burst out from his body. This was the awe-inspiring and domineering feeling of having a spear in his hand.
“Buzz!” This was the sound of metals clashing against each other. The long saber kept on spinning, flowing with multicolored light. All kinds of colors intersected with each other, like the multicolored light flowing through the Heavenly River.
Nonetheless, the Ancient Shaman’s skin only caved in a little. Its defense was too tough.
Of course, this was also because Big Yellow’s cultivation was too low. If he had the cultivation of a Ruler, even if it was difficult, he would still be able to break through the Ancient Shaman’s defense. He would not be as helpless as he was at the moment despite seeming to have the upper hand.
