Chapter 225 The Moment Of Life And Death

Translator:MyuuEditor:Myuu

That instant was the moment of life and death.

In that split second, many things happened…

The moment Yan Liqiang released his arrow which knocked away the Shatu warrior’s weapon that was heading toward the two disciples from the Wise Ruler Sect, the protective shield shrouding the old Shatu man also shattered at the same time. Yan Liqiang’s eyes widened amidst the dispersed red light. He spotted the supposedly rigid corpse of the other Shatu warrior, who had been instantly decapitated by the male disciple from the Wise Ruler Sect, suddenly spring up from the ground. His pitch black palms suddenly struck out toward the back of the female disciple from the Wise Ruler Sect who was sent flying due to the impact of the protective shield.

A headless corpse could actually move and even assault someone…

Such an unbelievable scene was unfolding before Yan Liqiang’s very eyes, right at this moment.

“WATCH OUT, JUNIOR MARTIAL SISTER!” The male disciple bellowed in rage, then bolted toward the headless Shatu warrior like a bullet. The longsword in his hands pierced the Shatu warrior’s torso right in the middle, creating a gaping wound about the width of a washbowl that spanned from his chest to his lower abdomen. However, the Shatu warrior suddenly grabbed the male disciple with both hands, slowing him down for a moment…

At that exact moment, before the harsh red light from the shattered protective shield faded, another dark shadow about three feet long flew out from the ground beneath the male disciple’s feet. It latched onto his leg for a moment, then started charging toward the female disciple from the Wise Ruler Sect…

The dark shadow was moving too fast. Everything happened without a warning. Despite Yan Liqiang’s superior vision, even he was unable to get a clear view of that dark shadow during that instant.

At that moment, Yan Liqiang released his second arrow as fast as possible…

When he shot the second arrow, he actually had a few targets the Shatu warrior who had flung his weapon out from a distance, the other Shatu warrior who could still grab ahold of someone despite having no head, the dark shadow which came out from underground, and that old Shatu man…

Without any hesitation, Yan Liqiang shot his second arrow at the old Shatu man. It was an action done out of instinct. Even he himself couldn’t understand the reason behind his action. Before he let loose the second arrow, time seemed to suddenly slow down for Yan Liqiang. All he saw was the cold and sinister grin that broke across the old Shatu man’s face, certain that victory was in his hands. The old Shatu man then seemed to have heard Yan Liqiang’s shout, so he turned his head around in surprise to look at him…

Yan Liqiang’s arrow was flying toward the old Shatu man’s face who had turned around…

A sword gleam flashed and a splat rang out at the same time…

The dark shadow, which was rushing toward the female disciple from the Wise Ruler Sect, was split into two amidst the sword gleam. A cloud of green gas was released…

As for the splat It was from Yan Liqiang’s arrow which pierced through the old Shatu man’s eye and blew his entire head off…

The moment the old Shatu man’s head was blown off by Yan Liqiang, the other two Shatu warriors who ‘rose from the dead’ instantly collapsed again in a heap on the ground at the same time. The two disciples from the Wise Ruler Sect also fell onto the ground nearly at the same time.

All of a sudden, no one was left standing on the battlefield.

The harsh red light had only slowly died down at this point in time.

Everything happened in just less than two seconds…

Yan Liqiang blankly stood up from the bushes and momentarily looked at the battlefield where no one was able to stand up again before he rushed over.

“WOOF, WOOF, WOOF!” Goldie, who had been moved onto the carriage, immediately barked in excitement when he saw Yan Liqiang rushing over to it. It was so excited that it was circling about inside the cage.

What remained of the battle were corpses strewn all over the place, the bloodstained ground, and the strong stench of blood that filled the air. Apart from Yan Liqiang, no one else could stand up. The situation seemed especially terrible.

Since the cloud of green gas still hadn’t completely dissipated on the field, Yan Liqiang didn’t dare to rashly charge inside there. That was because he saw the female disciple from the Wise Ruler Sect collapse as soon as the cloud of green gas got to her. Hence, it was extremely obvious that the gas might be toxic.

The thing that released the gas was a colorful centipede which had already fallen onto the ground after being split into two. It was nearly a meter long, and it was as wide as a palm. Its head was larger than Yan Liqiang’s two fists put together. Just the sheer size of that centipede alone was enough to send chills down one’s spine.

The centipede didn’t seem to be dead despite being split into two. The dense, countless legs on either side of it were still moving. Although its huge head had fallen onto the ground, the two pairs of poisonous fangs on it were still moving.

Seeing that the centipede wasn’t dead yet, Yan Liqiang pulled out an arrow and released it. The arrow directly nailed the centipede’s head and half its body to the ground.

Yan Liqiang was still concerned because the moving corpses were simply too frightening just now. Hence, he shot the old Shatu man and the other two Shatu warriors that had moved three more times. He only let out a sigh of relief when those three corpses were also firmly nailed to the ground.

Yan Liqiang then ran to the carriages at the side and unlocked the metal cage which held Goldie captive. Goldie stuck its tongue out and excitedly circled around Yan Liqiang as soon as it regained its freedom.

“Quick, go over there and keep watch. Alert me if someone comes!” Yan Liqiang pointed into the distance. Goldie, who was just released, immediately ran toward a hill which was a little further away from this grassland. That was the only place where steeds and carriages could enter the area. If any Blackwind Bandits arrived, Goldie would definitely be able to discover them immediately and warn him in time.

Only after settling that did Yan Liqiang cautiously approach the cloud of green gas.

The green gas appeared very suddenly but it also dissipated very quickly. In just the blink of an eye, it had thinned out considerably.

The male disciple from the Wise Ruler Sect was lying on the floor. However, since he was right next to the cloud of green gas that was about to dissipate, Yan Liqiang rushed over to him and held his breath. He crouched down, grabbed his legs, then dragged him away…

In just the blink of an eye, the male disciple’s lips had already turned dark. His body went rigid, akin to a heavy cast. His limbs were stiff, and Yan Liqiang found a bite mark from that huge centipede on the man’s lower left leg.

The male disciple from the Wise Ruler Sect seemed to realize that he was being dragged by Yan Liqiang. He opened his eyes, cast a glance at Yan Liqiang, then stammered with a hoarse voice. “I I can’t make it T-The poisonous gas has reached my heart My Junior Martial Sister can still be saved There’s a pill in the white bottle I put in a medicine pouch in my chest Let her take that”

After he finished speaking, his face turned black. The powerful martial practitioner shut his eyes as his body suddenly turned cold and completely stiffened up…
