Actually, those blazing hot flames had nothing to do with the anger of the stone giant.
The origin of those raging flames was the injury the stone giant had received, and it was also the reason he was compelled to hide in this glacial world in the forbidden area. Those flames had the power to burn all the things in the universe. They were unextinguishable and imbued with an ‘intent’ capable of burning the heavens and the oceans. The inextinguishable fire was entwining the body of the stone giant and burning his mortal body, making him suffer incredible pain.
At this time, the layer of stone the stone giant had used to seal the flames burning on his body had been damaged due to the attacks of Senior White’s 300 cannons. After losing the restraint of the layer of stone, the flames erupted, starting to burn more and more fiercely.
However, the stone giant hadn’t died yet… and Senior White had left the place after attacking with those 300 cannons, leaving behind only Song Shuhang.
[It’s better if I return to my Inner World and hide there for the time being.] Song Shuhang quickly made a decision. Since Senior White had disappeared, the stone giant would surely kill him if he stayed there any longer.
But just as Song Shuhang was in deep thought, a mass of blazing flames suddenly rushed toward him, ready to hit him. These were the same flames burning on the body of the stone giant.
Along with the layer of stone on the body of the giant getting blown to pieces, the burning debris scattered to each corner of this glacial world.
Now that he had lost Senior White’s protection, the burning debris had rushed toward Song Shuhang.
“Let’s go back!” Song Shuhang immediately issued the order to return to his Inner World.
The debris couldn’t be underestimated, especially the blazing flames burning on it. Not even that stone giant was able to put out those flames, and Song Shuhang wasn’t interested in personally experiencing their strength.
But, just as he thought of returning to his Inner World, the surrounding space froze. It was a space seal of the Ninth Stage Tribulation Transcender—or even Immortal—rank.
While in Immortal Cheng Lin’s ruins, Song Shuhang was unable to immediately return to his Inner World when that Immortal with jet-black arms covered in eyes used the power of space interference.
“This is bad.” Song Shuhang cursed inwardly.
This was clearly the stone giant taking action and interfering with space.
The stone giant had sensed that Senior White was about to disappear. However, everything had happened too quickly, and he was somewhat caught off-guard. As such, the distressed stone giant was unable to pursue and attack Senior White through the power of space, and could only helplessly look at him as he was disappearing. Thereupon, as soon as he got the opportunity, he made use of his spatial power to seal the surrounding space, preventing ‘White’ from carrying away Song Shuhang through the power of space.
As a consequence, Senior White disappeared while Song Shuhang stayed behind due to the space seal.
Senior White, didn’t you say that he would be injured even if he wasn’t dead?
However, the opposite still party is still perfectly able to use the power of space. He doesn’t even look injured!
“This is life! Full of unexpected things and surprises…”
Since he was unable to immediately return to his Inner World, Song Shuhang could only take out his treasured saber Broken Tyrant and slash at the blazing debris heading his way.
When the blade of the saber and the blazing piece of rock came in contact, Song Shuhang was forced to retreat several steps, and his right arm holding the saber was tingling with numbness.
The burning flying rock was shot down, falling on the glacier. Steam immediately rose from the spot, and only after the rock was completely consumed did the flames slowly die out.
A layer of raging flames was burning on Song Shuhang’s Broken Tyrant as well. It wasn’t that Song Shuhang had used the Flaming Saber Technique… those flames had started burning on Broken Tyrant’s blade when the saber came in contact with that flying rock.
The flames were incredibly overbearing, and they spread like a virus.
Even with his strength, the stone giant was unable to put out the flames completely, and his body was consumed by this unextinguishable heavenly fire until today. The only thing he could do was to rely on this glacial world to suppress the flames as much as possible.
As soon as the treasured saber Broken Tyrant in Song Shuhang’s hand came in contact with those flames, it was burned red. It felt as though it could melt at any time.
Song Shuhang swung the saber around and tried to operate his true qi to separate the flames from the blade. But just as his true qi came in contact with the flames, it acted as fuel, making the flames burn even more fiercely.
At this pace, the treasured saber Broken Tyrant wouldn’t last long. Song Shuhang’s heart was in pain. After all, the treasured saber Broken Tyrant was the only treasured saber he could use at this time!
But right at this time, a few other rocks flew toward Song Shuhang.
He couldn’t return to his Inner World, either, since space was still sealed.
Ye Si quickly erected a protective barrier in front of Song Shuhang, but when it came in contact with those flames, the barrier was almost immediately burned…
Song Shuhang clenched his teeth, and shouted, “Flaming Saber Technique!”
He spun his wrist and displayed the Flaming Saber Technique he had learned from Daoist Priest Scarlet Heaven, slashing at the incoming debris.
Since a layer of flames was already burning on the blade of his saber, he might as well add another one!
“Whoosh~” The saber intent of the Flaming Saber Technique exploded, and white-red flames resurfaced on the treasured saber Broken Tyrant.
Possibly because that layer of unextinguishable flames was burning on Broken Tyrant, the might of the Flaming Saber Technique was particularly overwhelming.
When he slashed, the flaming saber qi unexpectedly formed a 30-meter-long saber light. The saber qi slashed horizontally, chopping to pieces all the blazing debris around Song Shuhang’s body!
After chopping the blazing rocks to pieces, the flaming saber qi came back, and reattached itself to Broken Tyrant.
Song Shuhang was surprised; he lowered his head and looked at the treasured saber in his hands. Broken Tyrant’s blade had stopped melting! After pondering for a moment, Song Shuhang stopped the flow of true qi, deactivating the ‘Flaming Saber Technique’.
But right at this time, something strange happened. The flames burning above the treasured saber Broken Tyrant also slowly died out alongside the Flaming Saber Technique. Broken Tyrant, which was on the verge of melting earlier, likewise returned to its original state—the only difference being the color of the blade, which was now even darker.
The saber light of the Flaming Saber Technique could unexpectedly gobble up the unextinguishable heavenly fire burning on the body of the stone giant…?
At this time, the rumbling voice of the stone giant echoed from a distant place. “That saber technique… there is no mistaking, it’s his Flaming Saber Technique! Boy, what’s your relationship with Scarlet Heaven?”
As the stone giant roared, a large mass of steam rose from his position. It was the steam generated after the flames burning on his body had melted the ice of the glacial world.
“Daoist Priest Scarlet Heaven?” Song Shuhang was astonished.
After recalling those strange changes related to Broken Tyrant, as well as the flames burning on the body of the stone giant…
Unextinguishable flames imbued with ‘intent’ capable of burning the heavens and the oceans…
F*ck, wait a moment!
These flames aren’t the flames of Daoist Priest Scarlet Heaven’s ❮Heaven Burning Flaming Saber Technique❯, right?
Song Shuhang would never forget that saber intent capable of burning the heavens and the oceans.
The flames burning on the body of this stone giant weren’t left behind by Daoist Priest Scarlet Heaven, right?
I have a bad premonition. I feel like I’m f*cked.
Several years ago, Daoist Priest Scarlet Heaven severely injured the stone giant. Then, Senior White blew him up with 300 cannons… but, even more importantly, both Scarlet Heaven and Senior White were related to Song Shuhang.
The stone giant wasn’t going to use him to settle these two accounts, right?
“Kid, reply. What is the relationship between you and Scarlet Heaven?” The voice of the stone giant was like thunder.
“Actually, I’ve never met Daoist Priest Scarlet Heaven,” Song Shuhang replied. What he had said was the truth. He had never met Daoist Priest Scarlet Heaven in person. The only two times he came in contact with him was through Lady Onion and Li Tiansu’s dreamlands.
“Hehe, you’ve never met him?” the stone giant said coldly. “If you’ve never met him, how did you learn the ❮Heaven Burning Flaming Saber Technique❯?”
Song Shuhang replied truthfully, “I learned it during a dream.”
“During a dream? Ahahaha, must have been a good dream.” The stone giant laughed loudly. “I laughed so much that my tears almost came out. Since you like dreams this much, I’ll send you to a dream you’ll never wake up from!”
[Nowadays, no one believes you even if you tell them the truth!] Song Shuhang discovered that there was no trust among people nowadays. It was an era with no trust at all!
The stone giant walked out of the steam. The remains of that layer of stone covering his body hadn’t fallen off, and the interior was visible. The real body of the stone giant was also nearly ten meters tall, but it was thin and weak, and reminded one of a mummified corpse. The unextinguishable heavenly fire burning on his body had him surrounded, and was using his physical body and the energy inside as fuel. The inextinguishable fire wouldn’t stop burning until the day the stone giant died.
“Do you see the flames burning on my body? These unextinguishable flames are a gift of Daoist Priest Scarlet Heaven,” the stone giant said as he walked toward Song Shuhang.
Song Shuhang replied, “I can see them.”
As time was passing by, the Inner World was getting closer and closer to breaking free of the space interference. If he could drag things on for a little longer, he would be able to leave the forbidden area.
Therefore, Song Shuhang really wished to drag on the conversation for a little longer.
“I admit that I’m not Daoist Priest Scarlet Heaven’s match, but if I can kill his inheritor, it will surely bring peace to my mind,” the stone giant said.
“Actually, you already caused the death of Daoist Priest Scarlet Heaven’s real inheritor a few months ago,” Song Shuhang said.
“I know. That guy had gained some superficial knowledge of Scarlet Heaven’s sword technique, and he died soon after he barged into the forbidden area,” the stone giant said. When he spoke, sparks continuously came out of his mouth. “But you are different from him. What you learned is Scarlet Heaven’s signature saber technique. Therefore, you are definitely his direct disciple.”
From the looks of it, this stone giant was aware that Daoist Priest Li Tiansu had barged into the forbidden area.
“I’m telling the truth. I really am not Daoist Priest Scarlet Heaven’s disciple,” Song Shuhang said.
“Enough chit-chat. It’s time for you to die.” The stone giant finally arrived in front of Song Shuhang, and both his hands moved at the same time. The left one kept interfering with the surrounding space, while his right headed toward Song Shuhang, ready to crush him.
As expected, the stone giant had been severely injured just now. From the looks of it, the attack of Senior White’s 300 cannons hadn’t been so easy to withstand… His current condition was very bad, and he was greatly weakened.
Under normal circumstances, he could have easily killed a small cultivator of the Third Stage like Song Shuhang from afar just by snapping his fingers.
Now, he was forced to exhaust himself to arrive in front of him and attack him directly.
“Fire Controlling Art!” Song Shuhang suddenly made his move.
The Fire Controlling Art was a technique he had learned from Senior White. Senior White had taught him this technique after ruining his ‘Three Stars Fire Controlling Fan’.
