“The point is that I don’t need to use my saber to deal with you,” Song Shuhang said calmly.
“Ahahaha!” The demonic hamster got so angry that it started to laugh. Afterward, it grabbed its toothpick-sized sword, and said, “You will regret saying these words, SongShuhang!”
After it had said this much, the aura of the demonic hamster exploded, and dazzling sword qi condensed inside the sheath of the sword in its hands.
At this time, the demonic hamster looked the same as the sword it was about to draw out, cold and sharp.
It gazed at Song Shuhang with a cold expression on its face, and then said, “This sword is a rare treasure of the Fourth Stage rank. Its 6.47 centimeters long and weighs 0.5 grams. Although somewhat small, it’s an unusually sharp weapon that can easily cut through the true yuan protecting the bodies of cultivators of the Fourth Stage.”
In other words, this toothpick-sized sword was a treasure of the same level as the treasured saber Broken Tyrant in Song Shuhang’s handsboth could slash apart the bodies of cultivators of the Fourth Stage.
At this time, the demonic hamster looked like a true swordsman.
If it was just a little bigger and replaced with a white-robed human swordsman, the demonic hamster would look really cool. Unfortunately, it was just a minuscule hamster, and even if it wore a white robe, it would still be nothing but a hamster… a white-robed swordshamster!
“…” Song Shuhang.
He discovered that he could actually tell that the hamster had a ‘cold’ expression on its face at this moment. It was simply too weird… was it because he lived together with Doudou for some time? Did he learn how to tell apart the expressions of ‘animals’ after witnessing the large set of expressions of a pekingese like Doudou?
“If you don’t need the saber to fight me, what are you planning to use?” the white-robed swordshamster said haughtily. “Or do you really believe that I won’t kill an unarmed enemy? You are too naive!”
“I don’t have a sword, so I can only rely on my fists,” Song Shuhang replied with a sigh. While speaking, he operated his Steel Hands Technique, and the color of his arms changed into a metallic one.
At least when it came to imposing manner, Song Shuhang wasn’t inferior to the white-robed swordshamster.
“Very well. It seems that your fists aren’t any weaker than your saber.” The demonic hamster narrowed its eyes, and slowly unsheathed its treasured sword.
Along with the sword getting unsheathed, the sword qi condensed within slowly rose as well.
This process where one had to draw their sword was extremely important for swordsmen… it was a pity that the opposing Song Shuhang didn’t know how to use a sword.
Otherwise, this battle in the ‘Battle Arena Dimension’ between this hamster and this human cultivator would have gone down in the history of both the Netherworld Realm and the human world.
The demonic hamster felt great regret for this good opportunity missed.
In the next moment, it finally unsheathed its sword!
Sword qi shot up into the sky, and there was sword intent as well. The whole arena was shrouded in their power.
This demonic hamster was a rare genius amidst sword practitioners, and was an expert that had condensed its own sword intent.
Song Shuhang tightly clenched his fists, and the metallic color of his arms became even deeper, changing into a jet-black metallic color.
His initial plan was to take advantage of the fact that the white-robed swordshamster was still drawing its sword to attack first and break its momentum.
However, the demonic hamster didn’t show any flaw while drawing its sword. In addition, even before it had completely unsheathed its sword, it gave Song Shuhang a feeling of extreme danger.
Therefore, he didn’t dare to attack it recklessly!
“Good,” the demonic hamster said in a soft voice, “you didn’t take advantage of the fact that I was drawing my sword to attack me. Not bad, not bad… otherwise, you would be dead meat already. Now, get ready to welcome this sword attack of mine. This is a sword attack that rains down from beyond the highest heaven, reaching the ground from the sky at lightning speed. In addition, it’s super unpredictable. You can say that this sword technique is basically unparalleled in the world. You should be honored to die after getting to experience this technique of mine!”
“…” Song Shuhang.
The way this demonic hamster was describing its sword technique was weirding him out.
Afterward, the demonic hamster jumped upward and unsheathed its sword, assuming a very elegant stance. “This next move of mine is called Otherworldly Flying Demon!”
Sword qi exploded, and sword intent soared into the sky, crushing Song Shuhang beneath it. It truly felt as though a demonic god had descended from beyond the highest heavens to strike him down; the move was both domineering and unpredictable.
Song Shuhang took a step back, and valiantly welcomed the technique with his right fist. “Basic Buddhist Fist TechniqueTwo!”
Both his fists were strengthened thanks to the Steel Hands Technique. In the next moment, countless punches shot up toward the demonic hamster in the sky as though they were meteors.
F*ck, what’s the deal with this strange feeling.
Damn, I didn’t think that such a day would come…
‘Otherworldly Flying Demon (God)’ versus ‘Basic Buddhist Fist Technique’!
Actually, Song Shuhang had thought of giving the Basic Buddhist Fist Technique a better name while punching earlier… however, he ended up shouting aloud ‘Basic Buddhist Fist Technique Two’ under the pressure of the sword qi and sword intent of the demonic hamster.
What a tragedy! The real battle had yet to start, but his momentum had already gone to shiet!
Sword qi + Sword intent = domineering and overbearing!
Steel Hands Technique + meteor fists = powerful counterattack!
“Bang, bang, bang~”
The sword and the fists continuously clashed against each other.
The foul demonic qi and Song Shuhang’s ‘Thirty-Three Divine Beasts’ Innate True Liquid’ fought midair without a stop.
The sound of loud explosions echoed in the surrounding area.
Song Shuhang’s ‘Thirty-Three Divine Beasts’ Innate True Liquid’ already possessed part of the properties of the ‘innate true yuan’ of cultivators of the Fourth Stage. The Steel Hands Technique had increased the strength of his fists, making it infinitely approach that of a cultivator of the Fourth Stage. In addition, the Basic Buddhist Fist Technique could greatly restrict and weaken the demons of the Netherworld Realm.
But regardless of all this, Song Shuhang was still on the losing end. The sword qi of the demonic hamster completely suppressed him, making him retreat again and again.
In the blink of an eye, several deep sword wounds had appeared on his fists and body. As if that wasn’t enough, all his wounds were contaminated with the foul energy of the Netherworld Realm, which caused them to heal at a slower pace than normal. At this time, he was dripping with blood.
“So, this is the strength of a demon of the Fourth Stage that wasn’t weakened…” Song Shuhang muttered to himself. He had no way of winning this battle by fighting his enemy head on.
After tens of wounds appeared on his body, Song Shuhang’s expression didn’t change much. Since he learned the ‘secret appraisal technique’, it was pretty normal for hundreds, or even thousands, of deep wounds to appear on his body. Therefore, he was already used to it.
Such being the case, it was the time to let the demonic hamster have a taste of his next fist technique!
After fighting with the Basic Buddhist Fist Technique for a while, he finally found the right opportunity to launch his next fist attack.
Song Shuhang’s other fist exploded. “Demon Subduing Buddhist Fist Technique One: Descent of the Buddhist Warrior Attendant!”
When they were fighting in close combat earlier, he had been waiting and secretly preparing this big move!
The fist advanced forward, and the light of virtue on his body shone, coordinating with the fist technique and transforming into the projection of a buddhist warrior.
The sound of buddhist prayers echoed in the surrounding area along with the cry of a whale, which now resembled the cry of a dragon.
Just as the light of virtue transformed into the projection of a buddhist warrior that shrouded his body, the evil energy of the Netherworld contaminating Song Shuhang’s wounds immediately dispersed.
At the same time, the healing technique attached to the ‘ancient bronze ring’ on his finger activated, healing the wounds on his body.
“Ahahaha, I was waiting for this move of yours!” The demonic hamster laughed loudly midair. “Did you really think that I didn’t know that you had this fist technique at your disposal?”
After all, the hamster had been paying attention to Song Shuhang since the moment he’d come to the levels of the demons of the Fourth Stage together with Su Clan’s Sixteen.
Not only the saber techniques of this guy were pretty good… but he also had this fist technique that he had inherited from the Jingang Temple.
As such, the demonic hamster had been waiting for Song Shuhang to use this move.
“In that case, I’ll let you take a look at the real strength of my ‘Otherworldly Flying Demon’ technique! Even if that is a technique of the evil Jingang Temple, I’ll defeat it!” the demonic hamster shouted as its white robe fluttered in the wind.
Afterward, the power of the sword qi and sword intent that had condensed on its toothpick-sized sword increased by a notch.
The sword qi transformed into a five-meter-long black demonic sword that chopped toward Song Shuhang and the projection of the buddhist warrior wrapping him.
The sword attack dashed forward without stopping~
The sword caused a thunderous explosion, with booming sounds continuously echoing.
The current of air that Song Shuhang’s Demon Subduing Buddhist Fist Technique had created was slashed apart. Immediately after, the projection of the buddhist warrior wrapping around him was likewise cut into two halves by the demonic sword.
The Demon Subduing Buddhist Fist Technique… had been subdued and destroyed by a demon!
“As expected, this technique also turned out to be useless. There is simply too much difference in strength. Even by taking into account its power to subdue demons, as well as my body tempering techniques, I’m still unable to fight against this hamster on an equal footing,” Song Shuhang muttered to himself, and sighed.
Next, he calmly activated the talisman in his hand, and he threw himself to the ground.
In the next moment, a ‘transparent barrier’ completely wrapped Song Shuhang and protected his body.
It was the same transparent barrier that the members of the Nine Provinces Number One Group had used to ‘feign death’ while shooting those scenes where they were battling against the demons in Venerable White’s holiday residence.
It was a defensive barrier with a defensive power at the peak of the Fifth Stage, and even a demon of the Fifth Stage wouldn’t be able to break it within a short time.
An ordinary demon of the Fourth Stage wouldn’t be able to break it even if it were to attack for one whole hour.
Song Shuhang had two of these defensive talismans with him. It was the gift Mama Lychee gave him back then when she recognized Senior Sister Ye Si as her adopted daughter.
He didn’t expect that he would get to use it at this time.
The full-power slash of the demonic hamster bumped into the transparent barrier.
The barrier didn’t budge in the slightest, and firmly protected Song Shuhang’s body.
The sword qi dispersed, and the demonic hamster hovered midair, faintly gasping for breath. From the looks of it, the ‘Otherworldly Flying Demon’ technique had consumed quite a bit of its energy.
“F*ck, did I just kill this Song Shuhang guy after getting caught up in the moment?” the demonic hamster muttered to itself.
But right at this time, the light of the explosion dimmed.
The demonic hamster looked downward, and discovered that Song Shuhang was lying on the ground with a calm expression on his face. At this time, his body was covered by a transparent barrier that was protecting him from harm.
The demonic hamster was speechless.
“Eh? Are you done? C’mon, why don’t you attack again, Otherworldly Flying Demooon~” Song Shuhang provoked the hamster.
If you have the ability, use that ‘Otherworldly Flying Demon’technique again to break my barrier!
And when you are done breaking it, I’ll just take out the second one!
At the same time, Song Shuhang had concealed a few talismans in the sleeves of his daoist robe. There were five ‘evil-warding talismans’ in the sleeve of his left hand and five ‘sword talismans’ in the other one. These were the improved versions he got from Palace Master Seven Lives Talisman, and they had the strength of the Fourth Stage.
If the barrier got breached, he would glue these ten talismans onto the face of the demonic hamster.
As long as he had the opportunity to knock it to the ground, Song Shuhang would rush forward and use the Demon Subduing Buddhist Fist Technique he had prepared in advance to smash its face with a second wave of attacks!
