Note: The measurement is changed from 1 zhang = 10 meters to 1 zhang = 3 meters. Hopefully, this new measurement makes more sense.
Kill the Fragrant Deer
“This beastkin has nowhere to run now. Mr. Liu just has to deliver the killing blow with the true spirit flying sword.” The fat old man breathed a sigh of relief, then he spoke to Liu Ming with a smile.
Feng Qingmo looked at Liu Ming coldly, and he didn’t mean to do it himself.
When Liu Ming heard the words, he was thinking quickly in his mind, but he nodded indifferently. He made a gesture, and pure spiritual power surged out from the 143 crystals into the small golden sword.
The small golden sword suddenly made a sharp hum, and it grew to 30 meters more in size after trembling in the air. It shone in bright golden light with an overwhelming sword intent.
As he pointed forward, the 100 meters long sword struck at the array.
Upon seeing this, the fat old man’s eyes flashed with surprise. He made gestures with both hands, and a long fissure was opened on the dark blue light curtain. The golden sword light flashed into fissure without hindrance.
As soon as the golden sword light flashed into the array, its speed was also restricted several times by the array!
Seeing this, Liu Ming frowned slightly.
It seemed that this Dark Water Array also had a certain effect on the Void Flying Sword.
Although the momentum of the golden sword light slowed down, the chilling sharp qi rolled down from it first.
The fragrant deer beast below made a sharp scream, then gray mist rolled out from its body. When the sword light was about to hit, it teleported for a dozen meters together with the rope.
With a flash of golden light, the billowing sword light rolled and opened a wound that was a foot deep!
Void fragrant deer beastkin let out a painful roar, and gray blood spurted out from the wound, But, the wound was quickly recovered when the gray mist covered it.
When Liu Ming made a sword gesture to launch an attack at this beastkin, there was a sudden change!
A sly look flashed in the eyes of the fragrant deer beast. It spat out a gray beastkin pellet with bloody eyes.
A wave of gray light rolled out from the beastkin pellet and wrapped the beastkin and its pellet in it.
With a few pops, the blue rope on this beastkin instantly shattered bit by bit, then it turned into a vague gray mist ball that flashed toward the fissure above the array.
“No, it didn’t work! Don’t let it run away!”
The fat old man was astounded. He hurriedly made a gesture and launched a symbol at the array; the fissure started to close up.
Liu Ming’s face turned grim. He made a gesture, then the golden sword light swiftly pursued the fragrant deer beastkin.
However, due to the restriction of the array, its speed was far from its usual speed. The golden sword light flashed a few times, but it still couldn’t catch up with the fragrant deer beastkin.
At this time, Feng Qingmo snorted, threw a dozen white talismans from his sleeve and uttered the word “seal”.
In an instant, the white talismans exploded above the array, turning into wisps of white smoke that filled the fissure of the array.
At the same time, under the desperate channel of the fat old man, the fissure was only a few feet wide.
The fragrant deer beastkin was only a dozen meters away from the exit after a few flashes. Seeing this situation, it emitted gray mist once again, and its beastkin pellet charged up in a cluster of black light. It was about to strike the fissure.
A loud collision!
A black hot sun burst out from the blue light curtain. The fissure, that was about to close up, was blasted apart under the shocking impact. The fragrant deer beastkin blurred and teleported out of the array.
As soon as it left the Dark Water Array, its figure became blurred without stopping. After a few flashes, it disappeared without a trace.
“It actually blew its own beastkin pellet!”
Feng Qingmo was furious seeing this!
Liu Ming frowned slightly, then he recalled the golden sword light.
“Don’t panic, young master. This beastkin has used teleportations successively in the array just now, so it must have exhausted a lot of spiritual power. Now that it exploded its own pellet, it definitely can’t run far as its cultivation has plummeted. Let’s summon the amethyst marten and chase it!”
Huang Elder said with a calm expression.
Feng Qingmo only realized it as it patted the leather bag. A purple ray rolled out and turned into the amethyst marten.
He shook his arm and released a drop of blood to feed the amethyst marten, then he shouted and pointed at the direction where the fragrant deer beastkin escaped.
After amethyst marten groaned, it bounced and went forward in a purple crystal light.
Feng Qingmo hurriedly followed up in a white light.
Liu Ming also turned himself into a golden rainbow that followed behind him.
When the fat old man saw Liu Ming left, he immediately showed a thoughtful look. After standing still for a while, he hurriedly followed up in a white cloud.
Although this amethyst marten had low cultivation, it was extremely agile. Now it seemed to know that the void fragrant deer beastkin was badly injured, so it chased all the way without hesitation.
The void fragrant deer beastkin indeed exhausted a lot of spiritual power as the old fat man predicted. As it exploded its own pellet, its aura was weakened as well. Although it had escaped from the Dark Water Array, it could only teleport for about 20 meters.
But even so, its speed was astonishingly fast and cunning, and it kept fleeing toward the place filled with mist and miasma.
If they weren’t led by the amethyst marten, they would have lost its trace a few times.
As a result, they came to a certain mountain peak after chasing for half an hour. They once again caught up with the beastkin again.
The fragrant deer beastkin was full of wounds. Most of its fur was already blood-stained. Its aura wasn’t as strong as before. Before it was discovered, it curled up next to a pool of water at the foot of the mountain, and a steady stream of gray mist went into its body as if it was absorbing the poisonous mist to replenish its spiritual power.
However, as soon as it spotted the escape light of the amethyst marten and the other 3, the fragrant deer’s eyes flashed with a hint of ferociousness, then it teleported for a dozen meters again.
Although their speed wasn’t slow, without the assistance of the array, they couldn’t easily intercept the beastkin.
They followed for more than a hundred miles, and an unexpected scene suddenly happened.
When the void fragrant deer beastkin flew over a certain valley again, it made a burst of whining sound. Its speed was slow, and more gray blood leaked out. Its injuries seemed to have intensified.
When Liu Ming saw this, he channeled spiritual power into the 8 tentacles sea beastkin on his chest. After the 8 tentacles sea beastkin made a strange cry, a pair of silver wings appeared behind him.
Liu Ming flashed out for 90 meters away, and he finally caught up with the fragrant deer beastkin.
As soon as he raised his sleeve, a black bead flew out and turned into a hill phantasm in the air.
In front of the fragrant deer beastkin, a 30 meters tall hill phantasm was clearly visible. It was the Heavy Water Droplet mixed with gold essence soil.
The Void Beast was startled. It turned around in a hurry and teleported away.
At this time, a faint scent spread out, and a strong wind formed an invisible wind wall blocking the fragrant deer beastkin.
“Got you finally!”
A white light flashed in the wind, revealing Feng Qingmo’s figure. He was holding a slightly flickering white feather fan in his hand, staring at the fragrant deer beastkin with excitement.
On the other side, the fat old man also arrived in time. He launched a red light that transformed into a small crimson snake.
The fat old man groaned and pointed with 1 hand.
The small crimson snake suddenly accelerated in the air, then it appeared elusively beside the fragrant deer beastkin and bound it tightly.
After the red light flashed in the eyes of the small crimson snake, it turned into a burning rope.
The fragrant deer beastkin wailed and fell into the valley below in a ball of flames, smashing a huge pit out of it. It struggled desperately on the ground, but the flames were not diminished no matter how it rolled.
“Haha, Elder Huang’s crimson snake rope really deserves its reputation. Now, this beastkin is really in the bag!” Feng Qingmo said with joy.
But at this moment, the body of the fragrant deer beastkin in the huge pit below suddenly shrank, then it grew strangely. Its original body size of 9 meters somehow turned into 30 meters in size. At the same time, gray mist kept rolling out wildly. The flame rope was about to be broken forcibly.
The fat old man and Feng Qingmo were shocked, but before they could take any action, Liu Ming already used the “body and sword fusion”.
The next moment, a golden sword light with a length of more than 30 meters appeared. It flashed and pierced through the fragrant deer beastkin.
The fragrant deer beastkin exploded like a deflated balloon. Clouds of gray blood gushed out from it, splashing all over the place. At the same time, a fishy smell spread out instantly.
