Chu Li moved to the side to evade the incoming attack.
Zheng Ze scoffed. “I see you’re rather skilled!”
He vibrated his sword, causing it to buzz as if a swarm of bees was dancing about in the sky.
His presence became more ominous as his longsword trembled. It was as if he had changed into a different person, transforming from an Innate Master to a Grandmaster.
He vanished on the spot before he appeared behind Zhu Xing in an instant. Then, he moved his sword forward in an attempt to pierce Zhu Xing from the back.
“Good one kid!” Zhu Xing immediately sprinted forward so that he could avoid being pierced from the back.
However, he was no match for Zheng Ze’s sword’s speed as the sword was already at his chest. Zheng Ze trembled his longsword as it continued to move towards Zhu Xing.
Zhu Xing was stabbed in the chest multiple times as he screamed angrily, “What a cunning b*stard. Take my palm!”
His aura changed as both of his blood-red palms swiftly turned dull. The color of the blood disappeared and his palms became crystal clear. All that was left behind was the veins in his palms that looked similar to a white jade covered in a thin layer of fat and they looked incredibly beautiful. It was strange that a man would have such a delicate hand.
“It’s the Blood Jade Palm!” Zheng Ze scoffed.
The Blood Jade Palm was not something an average disciple from the Church of Divine Blood could learn. It was the Church of the Divine Blood’s secretly transmitted Divine Technique. It was incredibly lethal as it would consume one’s essence of blood once one was attacked by it. It would not stop until one is ultimately perish.
“Ding…” Zhu Xing did not seem to suffer any injury at all and those attacks did not affect his movements in any way. Again, he attacked with his sinister palm but there was a loud chirp as Zheng Ze was able to block it with his longsword.
Chu Li could see the nature of the Bloody Garment Divine Power. The flesh around the wound would stitch back and recover quickly to the point it seemed that the user was not injured at all. Although the user might need to recover properly later on, it would not affect his movements at this moment.
“Ding ding ding ding…” Zhu Xing chased after Zheng Ze as if he was Zheng Ze’s shadow while he threw his palms endlessly towards the latter.
Chu Li shook his head upon realizing that both of them were not inexperienced.
It seemed like everyone in Fu Dynasty loved to act weak. Zheng Ze was clearly a Grandmaster but he acted as if he was just an Innate Master. On the other hand, Zhu Xing had hidden a huge portion of his true strength as well.
Without the Omniscient Mirror, Chu Li would not have been able to see through their skill.
However, was Fu Dynasty really this skilled to the point where he could encounter a Grandmaster in a random small town?
It would be frightening if that was the case.
Hu Qiming felt at ease when he saw Zhu Xing was able to anchor down Zheng Ze and so, he smiled at Miss Zheng. “Lil Yan, you’ll get to wear amazing attires and eat amazing food if you were to marry me. You’ll have all the money and you’ll get to have subordinates to do whatever you want them to. You’ll get to live a comfortable life, so why can’t you just accept it!”
“Hu Qiming, you’re a psychopathic b*stard!” Miss Zheng smiled coldly. “Stop dreaming. I’d rather die than to marry you!”
She was disgusted when she saw Hu Qiming’s face and she could recall those evil deeds he had done.
“Sigh… Lil Yan, it’ll be hard for you to even die when I’m around!” Hu Qiming squinted as he smiled. “It’s fine that you want to die alone, but what about your father? Is he going to die alongside you?”
“You with the surname Hu, karma will hit you one day!” Miss Zheng said coldly.
Hu Qiming laughed out loud. “What a joke. Lil Yan, do you really believe in karma? If there really is karma, why am I still well and alive, able to eat and enjoy life? Stop being naive. Good people are meant to suffer in this world whereas the evil ones get to enjoy it. So, join me and let’s be villains together!”
“It’s not that karma doesn’t hit you, it’s just that it hasn’t hit you yet!” Miss Zheng scoffed. “Today is the day karma hits you!”
As she said that, she attacked Hu Qiming together with Zheng Shoufang.
The father and daughter were both Innate Masters. On the other hand, Hu Qiming was just all talks. He was not skilled at all. Not only was he attacked at the limbs, but his face was also scarred after a few attacks.
Miss Zheng and Zheng Shoufang smiled. They did not care if they were about to die. They were satisfied as long as they killed Hu Qiming.
“Ding…” The clear chirp kept reverberating. As Zheng Ze took three steps back, three of his footprints could be seen imprinted clearly on the bluestone.
Seeing that the Blood Jade Palm was incredibly powerful, his defense was on the verge of collapsing. The strength that flooded out from Zhu Xing’s palm had almost broken through his sword’s defense and he could only absorb the attacks from the Blood Jade Palm by retreating.
Although his blade’s strength was pure and powerful, once its defense was broken through by the Blood Jade Palm, the Blood Jade Palm would seep into his body. He would not be able to fully resist the Blood Jade Palm with his inner energy because it was simply not strong enough.
Zhu Xing evaded and appeared behind Zheng Shoufang and Miss Zheng. He then released both of his palms as he tried to land a hit on their backs.
Killing these two was a child’s play from his perspective. The reason he had yet to kill this little beauty was that his nephew wanted her. Now that the situation had turned dire and this lady had harbored killing intent, it would be wiser for him to kill her now so that troubles would not escalate later on.
“Whoosh!” An intimidating sound appeared behind him.
His instinct triggered as he realized that he was in danger. Hence, he stopped his attack on the father and daughter before he evaded to the side.
Chu Li’s blade flashed across as Zhu Xing managed to evade in the nick of time. The latter was so shocked that he was drenched in cold sweat.
Chu Li’s longsword was already sheathed. His white robe was fluttering freely as he reached out his hand to protect the father and daughter behind him.
He focused his gaze on Zhu Xing’s chest.
That was where the blood core was located. Then, he suddenly felt a strong lust.
The Heavenly Demonic Orb was activating as it could not resist itself from absorbing the blood core. The sensation was similar to seeing a fountain of water after not drinking for two days.
He resisted this urge as he pondered.
He had seen the blood core from the disciple from the Church of the Divine Blood before back in Gale City. He had personally destroyed the blood core as well but he had never had this strange feeling before. The Heavenly Demonic Orb did not act strangely back then. Why would he have the strong urge to devour the blood core now?
Zheng Ze looked at Chu Li. The former did not expect the latter to be so skilled with his sword. He then took a deep breath and became one with his sword as he pierced it towards Zhu Xing like a white halo piercing through the sky.
Zhu Xing’s palms were as red as a blood jade as he took on the longsword.
“Ding ding ding ding…” It sounded like heavy rain was hitting on the roof.
Zheng Ze gritted his teeth as he poured all of his energy into his longsword, forcing it to move quicker. He refused to believe that Zhu Xing would be able to block it.
Hu Qiming was drench in cold sweat. His uncle would not be able to save him in time if he did not hold on. He gritted his teeth. “B*stard Zheng, I’ll make you wish you’re dead!”
Zheng Shoufang scoffed. “B*stard, that depends if you can!”
“I’ll tie you up and fool around with your daughter right in front of you. Haha!” Hu Qiming laughed as he started to become excited by imagining the situation in his head. He then laid his eyes on the lady. “Haha, I’m sure it’ll be very fun!”
Zheng Shoufang gritted his teeth. “You’re a b*stard through and through!”
“I’m a b*stard, so what are you going to do about it?” Hu Qiming laughed out loud.
All of a sudden, Chu Li appeared behind him and his sword flashed.
“Whoosh!” Hu Qiming’s head flew off while he smiled. His blood splurged high up into the sky as if it was a column.
Chu Li jolted his treasure sword slightly before sheathing it back.
“Ah!” Miss Zheng was shocked.
She had never seen such a cruel scene. She was so scared that her body started to shiver and her chest tightened as if she was about to puke.
Zheng Shoufang was over the moon as he laughed happily. “Haha, justice is served!”
“Ming’er!” Zhu Xing cried out loud.
In an instant, blood poured into the veins in his eyes, turning his eyes blood red.
Then, his hair started to move even though there was no wind. His robe fluttered as if his body was sent into a frenzy.
Suddenly, his body was shrunk by thirty percent and red beams started to shoot out from his eyes.
Chu Li knew that he had used a secret technique as the blood core in his body started to beat like his heart. A powerful aura started to ooze out from his body.
“Boom!” Zheng Ze was sent flying and his longsword was sent flying high up in the sky as if he was run over by a horse.
Zhu Xing then charged towards Chu Li in an instant.
