The Favored Son of Heaven Chapter 530 – Invincible
Translator: Exodus Tales Editor: Exodus Tales
Elysium’s Eight Immortals had joined forces against their enemies many times, but they had never joined forces to attack and encircle just one man before. The energy field pressure formed by the five immortals was the strongest pressure ever felt by Qin Fen since he debuted.
Qin Fen raised his head slightly and felt the pressure from all directions with a quick inhale of air. The joint-force of the five immortals was not just powerful. The most important thing here was that while there were five separate powers, as five of them attacked, the powers fused into one. The joint-force felt as if it was a stand-alone aura of power. Being able to achieve such a level resembling nature itself was quite rare in any joint attack.
Under the strong pressure and the huge aura of power, Qin Fen squinted slightly, as if his eyes were stunned by the approaching pressure. The five immortals were more aggressive than Chen Ni’s power, and they were stronger than Zuo Dongting that day. Their attack range was more extensive and ruthless, covering almost all the vital points of Qin Fen’s body.
Qin Fen didn’t lower his body and widen his legs as usual, instead, he stood up straight like a halberd. If anyone had witnessed the scene in the Hulao Pass, the scene where the Heaven Scorcher Halberd next to Lu Bu was struck against the ground, they would find that how Qin Fen stood was just like that halberd!
Under the strong pressure of aura shield, Qin Fen stood up straight. The majestic aura of power could not bend his waist. His quilted eyes were not showing a battling will in excitement, but a hint of faint loneliness.
Almost at the same moment, Lu Dongbin’s heart leaped wildly. Qin Fen, who was under great pressure, did not counter with his violent aura of power as an attack. That feeling from Qin Fen felt just like a certain man! Yang Jian! The man who was known as the Elysium War God – Yang Jian!
Yang Jian, the Elysium War God, used a long-handled weapon – the three-pointed double-edged sword that was rarely used by martial artists. He once stood at the peak of Saturn’s mountain range with the height of seventeen thousand meters. At that time, he gave off the same feeling as Qin Fen.
Qin Fen looked at the dark claws that were approaching him. The sharpness of the claws even exceeded that of a knife. The muscles of the palm continued to make a tightening sound. The air was like a brocade, the claws were leaving clear traces as they move through the air.
Almost as fast, but not really having the same speed. The eighteen-star insect warrior, Lan Caihe, was the strongest. Plus, he was the first to launch a straight attack, so he was faster than others by a millisecond.
Qin Fen stared at Lan Caihe’s approaching claws. His squinted eyes widen slightly. He scanned through the whole battlefield with his peripheral vision, but he did not move.
Lan Caihe appeared in front of Qin Fen, suddenly withdrawing four of his five fingers, leaving his index finger straight out like a steel pointed rod, aiming straight into Qin Fen’s forehead! He twisted his arm and wrist counterclockwise just like a rapidly rotating steel rod, to penetrate Qin Fen’s brain.
He changed the Coagulation Divine Claws to One Finger Zen! Lan Caihe lost most of his consciousness, but he did not lose his martial arts. He chose a better way to fight out of instinct.
Qin Fen countered with the Arhat Fist’s style Flexed Steps Scissorhands. His right palm cut onto Lan Caihe’s wrist, and his five fingers stretched to hold the wrist. At the same time, Lan Caihe’s five blade-like fingers immediately stretched and grabbed Qin Fen’s arm. The sharp claws squeaked on Qin Fen’s muscles and skin, like dozens of steel knives scratching on thick metal; there was no way to break through Qin Fen’s Ground Aura Shield slates.
Qin Fen tightened his grip all of a sudden, Lan Caihe’s arm bones were crushed, and his right arm was immediately thrown to the side. The huge force lifted Lan Caihe’s whole body and threw him out like a human cannonball, shot toward the rapidly spinning Tungsten Steel Fan of Han Zhongli.
Han Zhongli lifted his hand and pressed on the Lan Caihe’s back, with the intention of catching him. As his hand barely touched Lan Caihe, he was alarmed, “Oh no!”
A surging and unparalleled power erupted like a volcano from the Lan Caihe’s back. The burning true energy instantly overpowered the Snowy Divine Art in Han Zhongli’s body. This burning true energy raged through the meridians of his right arm, and it broke through the shoulder right away, going directly into the chest. The meridians of his whole body were paralyzed by the burning heat, any counterattack or force redirection was too late to be used.
Han Zhongli was forced out into the air with his eyes filled with shock. Qin Fen turned out to be this terrifying? As an eighteen-star martial artist, he could actually hurt people just by transferring force through a body! In just half a year, Qin Fen’s strength has actually reached such a realm. If he was allowed to continue to develop in the future, can anybody in this world ever take him down?
Puff! Han Zhongli spurted out a huge amount of hot blood, about hundreds of milliliters of blood. The Wukong technique could not be used again. As his feet touched the ground, his body was unable to withstand the impact. His whole body rolled out like a ball, and his heart suddenly felt a sharp pain!
“Oh no!” Han Zhongli was shocked and covered in a cold sweat. It turns out, Qin Fen…
Lan Caihe’s right hand, which was crushed by Qin Fen, pierced deeply into Han Zhongli’s chest with the sharp claws before Han Zhongli had yet to reorganize his protective aura shield. The claws pierced through his strong beating heart. The last trace of true energy transferred through Lan Caihe’s body suddenly exploded in the heart, completely blasting Han Zhongli’s heart into pieces.
“Killing by transferred force through a body….” Han Zhongli couldn’t stop spurting blood from his lips. His eyes widen to the size of a baby’s fist as he stared at Qin Fen in disbelief. As a seventeen-star martial artist, although there was no possibility of winning over an eighteen-star, it shouldn’t be that easy for an eighteen-star to kill me! But this Qin Fen just killed me by transferring force through a man.
Han Zhongli has killed many people in his life. He had witnessed a lot of life and death battles, but he had never seen such a situation. He did not imagine that he would die under such means. Even though his body died, his eyes still had no sign of closing.
Qin Fen showed his means of killing and throwing a man. The skin of his left hand became transparent, it looked like a jade-carved arm without any impurity. The skin was smooth to the point where even a baby would be ashamed when seeing it. His five fingers stretched out and pressed against He Xiangu. He lifted his right wrist at the same time, and his index finger and middle finger pointed together into a sword fingers gesture towards Tie Guaili!
Left hand with Buddha’s Palm Ten Thousand Buddha Greeting! Right hand with One Finger Zen Sky and Earth!
Qin Fen didn’t have a mighty battling will. With a faint sigh, the whole world seemed to be shaken and influenced by his sigh. The screams of the five immortals were drowned, and the previously overwhelming aura of power scattered. It felt like the whole world was silent in his sigh.
He Xiangu couldn’t care to admire the power of Qin Fen’s sigh which overthrew the five immortals’ aura of power. Her eyes were focused on the incoming palm. The mighty power made her feel that she was no longer an immortal, but just an ant. Even if she exerted all her power, she was still insignificant in front of this palm.
“This is Qin Fen’s real power? He used the Air Splitting Palm against a strong seventeen-star?”
He Xianggu couldn’t hide the surprise in her eyes. Her beautiful eyes looked at Qin Fen’s white jade palm, which was approaching with the Air Splitting Palm. The palm was so beautiful that it was dazzling, but it could give off such power.
The Air Splitting Palm had always been a combat skill used by strong martial dao artists only when dealing with martial artists who were way weaker than themselves. This kind of combat skill seemed splendid and unparalleled; it could emit true energy to hurt people, but it was rarely used by experts in their fights.
Even if there was one star-level difference, the high-level martial artists wouldn’t use the Air Splitting Palm against their enemies. It wouldn’t have any effect at all. The aura shield together with the power of martial artists would be sufficient in breaking this seemingly splendid but impractical trick.
Chi chi chi…
He Xiangu’s hands were moving swiftly, as if thousands of steel knives were flying at her fingertips. Her hands were cutting the Air Splitting Palm from the Buddha’s Palm style again and again. A series of squeaking sounds could be heard, but the mighty power could not be cut through as she wished. The palm power felt like they had a physical form, pressing overwhelmingly against He Xiangu.
“Why is it…”
He Xiangu couldn’t manage to cut again, she crossed her arms at her chest to block. It suddenly felt like she was an ordinary person and was hit by a road roller. Her body flipped a couple of times in the air uncontrollably, then fell heavily to the ground. She broke through several trees, her hair disheveled, and finally stabilized her body. She stared blankly at Tie Guaili who was covered in blood and falling from the sky.
It was fast! He was too fast! It was powerful! He was too powerful!
Tie Guaili thought that Qin Fen’s One Finger Zen was just to block his attack temporarily, so to create a time gap to fight each of them separately. However, he couldn’t imagine that these tidal attacks were actually martial arts techniques with murderous intent! Just like the Air Splitting Palm, the power of the finger technique was so strong that it couldn’t be looked down upon by anyone.
The iron crutch of Tie Guaili which was used for killing and defense flew out from his cracked palm after it was used to block Qin Fen’s One Finger Zen twenty-seven times in an instant. Not given time for any defense, the overwhelming, storm-like finger power of One Finger Zen felt just like physical finger attacks, falling all over his body.
“Is he really an eighteen-star martial artist?”
The finger aura penetrated Tie Guaili’s head, splashing out a string of red and white brain fluid in the air. Qin Fen appeared calm and made his moves swiftly, he attacked like how a calligraphy master’s writing moves.
“Am I dreaming?”
That was the last thought that flashed in what was left of Tie Guaili’s brain. He fell from the sky like a fallen fighter jet and fell into a mass of meat. No one could ever again match him with that Tie Guaili, who rampaged through Saturn and killed many martial experts in Inferno with his crutch.
Two Magnetic Flying Swords with powerful aura and rainbow-like radiance, which entangled with each other like a pair of resentful couple, suddenly turned around in the air and flew back to Lu Dongbin’s scabbards.
Qiang qiang! The sounds of two flying swords returned into the scabbards. These two sounds brought an end to this battle which unfolded and ended in the blink of an eye.
