The storm was wreaking havoc as it poured down. Not single trace of light could be seen in the sky, and darkness was terrifying.
In the Guest Clan of the Liu Family, hundreds of people were engaged in a pitched battle. All were fighting dauntlessly without reserving any power. They were reaping other’s lives with their strongest fighting power.
The four families had one more Spirit Sea Realm warrior and dozens more regular warriors than the Liu Family. After the chaos of burning the Purple Erosion Grass was over, the warriors of the four families had once again attempted to hold their ground and had gained the upper hand. The Liu Family was struggling to hold up and fighting desperately.
“Bang! Bang! Bang!”
Some muffled sound came from the left side all of a sudden which got people’s attention. Di Ba and his guys glanced over and all were stunned.
What they saw was a warrior of the Chen Family flying backward, bumping into several guys and sending them airborne. A row of people fell over all at once.
A sharp sound came and a black forcefully saber cut through the screen of rain at a warrior of the Zhao Family. It was so fast that the warrior had no time to react before his chest was cut at. Blood spilled out, and the warrior was also sent flying backward which knocked several people into the air.
This time, Di Ba finally had a good look. He shouted in surprise and disbelief written in his eyes.
Di Ba clearly remembered that when Lu Li fled to the Wu Ling County and stayed in the tavern—the time when he brought warriors of the Zhao Family to kill Lu Li in that tavern—the latter was only at the middle stage of the Xuan Wu Realm. How could he have reached the Spirit Sea Realm within such a short span of time?
Di Ba had no idea that Lu Li had killed Patriarch Piao and two other people at the Red Stone Mountain. Di Ba had been staying on garrison duty at a place to the east of the Frigid Cloud Mountain and had only recently come back. Nobody in the Zhao Family talked about the business at the Frigid Cloud Mountain as it was a sore spot for Zhao Rui. People in the know would ask for a snub by offending Zhao Rui with this.
Therefore, Zhao Rui looked at Lu Li as if he was a ghost. Zhao Rui, on the other hand, was not so shocked. He thought the Liu Family had invested countless pellets to help Lu Li to elevate his realm.
On the other hand, Liu Yi was experiencing inner turmoil. She clearly knew that not only did the Liu Family not help Lu Li, but was rather actually going against him.
Lu Li absolutely did not get any advanced pellet from the Liu Family. There could be only one explanation left—Lu Li had made it to the Spirit Sea Realm all by himself.
Liu Yi blushed on thinking that she had consumed more than a dozen high rank pellets before she could make it to the Spirit Sea Realm. Regret emerged on her mind.
That night, if she had let go of her demure nature and her status, throwing herself onto Lu Li, she could already make herself belong to Lu Li now.
That was Liu Yi’s evaluation of Lu Li. To commit herself to a genius would mean that she and the Liu Family would benefit from the rise of Lu Li since his achievements would surpass her wildest imagination as long as Lu Li lived on.
Soon, Liu Yi shook her head to make herself more sensible. This moment was not suitable for daydreaming. The Liu Family might succumb to extinction tonight. Liu Yi might have her body smashed to pieces. It was pointless to think of that nonsense.
Many people froze but not Lu Li. He wielded his broadsword and attacked like a tiger dashing into a sheep herd. In the time it took for several blinks, he had already killed five men, knocked more than a dozen into the air, and on top of that, he was still killing at a horrible speed.
People of the Liu Family had their spirits lifted. Morale was boosted. They shouted and advanced. Liu Yi waved her long whip with a swooshing sound. She yelled in her delicate voice, “We’ve got our powerful reinforcement. Box all those bastards in.”
A warrior of the He Family that was at the Spirit Sea Realm was right next to Lu Li. He carried a huge axe in his hand and dashed towards Lu Li who had just murdered a man of the He Family and was aiming at another disciple of his family. There was no way that this He Family warrior would leave Lu Li alone.
Lu Li had wished for this man to deliver himself. Lu Li glided over and used a sweep kick to knock a warrior of the Zhao Family away. Lu Li then kicked the man like he was a sandbag towards the Spirit Sea Realm warrior of the He Family. At the same time, Lu Li swung his broadsword and cut at this warrior.
The warrior was halved by Lu Li. Blood was spilt everywhere, along with his guts and intestines. Another old man at the Spirit Sea Realm who was rushing towards Lu Li squinted and dodged to the side.
Lu Li aimed at the neck of this Spirit Sea Realm warrior and made his move as fast as lightning. The old man reacted quite quickly as well. He swung his axe and swept at Lu Li’s Heaven Kylin Sword.
Some powerful strength ran down the weapons which made it difficult for the old man to hold onto his axe. He was forced to walk backwards. Doubts filled his eyes. He tried to detect the energy and qi coming from Lu Li, and discovered the latter should have just made it to the Spirit Sea Realm. How could he have such terrifying strength?
The old man had not the luxury of time to ponder it. Lu Li was too fast. He chased up to the old man like a sly fox and swung his Heaven Kylin Sword downward again.
What should the old man do? He hadn’t regained his balance yet, let alone making a move. All that was left for him was to try to defend. This time, though, he used his brain. The old man held onto his huge axe with both of his hands to prevent from being knocked off by Lu Li again.
“Go to hell –”
Lu Li yelled out. He mustered his Xuan Power in his Spirit Sea and moved them to his right hand. The Heaven Kylin Sword landed heavily on the axe. When the two weapons came into contact with each other, the Xuan Power was released. Lu Li’s strength was increased for the second time thereby. The huge axe in the old man’s hands was smashed away.
When anyone had successfully defended the first round of attacks, they would let their guard down a little bit. Who could have thought that a second strand of strength would ensue? Besides, the second strand was even more powerful than the first one. The old man’s hands were numb. How could he hold onto his huge axe anymore given that Lu Li’s strength had gone up again?
Without the huge axe, the old man’s neck was cut at by the Heaven Kylin Sword after Lu Li swung his broadsword with a beautiful arch trajectory. A big head flew out. The headless body of the old man fell to the ground with a loud noise.
Everyone was shocked and stunned. It was just within the time for 20 breaths since Lu Li came out, but he had already killed warriors in the Spirit Sea Realm?
Lu Li was only in the initial stage of the Spirit Sea Realm. Nobody saw him using advanced Xuan Skill. How could he have hacked the old man in the Spirit Sea Realm of the He Family so easily?
“Brother Lu, nicely done!”
Cheng Qu shouted out in excitement. Little did he know that a long black arrow was coming his way to his neck.
He turned around and found Zhao Rui smiling mockingly toward him. Cheng Qu covered his neck with one hand, staggered for a bit and then collapsed to the ground.
Cheng Qu was one of the warriors of the Spirit Sea Realm of the Liu Family. It was even that both the Liu Family and the four families had lost warriors of the Spirit Sea Realm.
“Uncle Ni, Di Ba, go and kill Lu Li. The rest of you, hold the warriors at the Spirit Sea Realm of the Liu Family back.”
Zhao Rui roared as he clearly knew that if Lu Li were to continue like this, he would witness complete annihilation of his guys at the west gate.
Uncle Ni was a powerful External Clan Patriarch of the Zhao Family who was at the middle stage of the Spirit Sea Realm. Also, there was no way that he and Di Ba together couldn’t kill Lu Li.
A middle-aged man shouted in a deep voice. He used his long sword and forced a Spirit Sea Realm warrior of the Liu Family to back off. Then he turned around and ran towards Lu Li.
So did Di Ba. He walked back into the army of the four families and ran towards Lu Li directly without paying attention anymore to the warriors of the Liu Family that were of the Spirit Sea Realm.
Liu Yi was getting worried. She tried to make her way to Lu Li, but the warriors of the four families blocked her in. Zhao Rui released his long arrows which were like poisonous snakes towards Liu Family warriors, making them unable to back up Lu Li.
Lu Li had killed another three or four persons near him. After that, he just stood there with the broadsword in his hands, waiting for Di Ba and Uncle Ni to get closer. No fear could be seen on Lu Li’s face, just a strong intent of fighting.
He looked over to Di Ba and sneered. “Patriarch Di, are you hurrying to your death? Do you want to find Di Huo in the underworld and catch up with your son?”
