Martial God Conqueror - Chapter 19
The beast tide this time, was shorter compared to last one, from the hilltop Du Shaofu looked downward. Gusts of breeze from the passing flying beasts’ flapping wings sting Du Shaofu’s cheeks and made his heartbeat quickened from shock, quickly stepping back.
The demonic birds were so huge, with an overbearing pressure that towering trees nearby broke.
"Looks like whatever that is happening inside is not so simple." Looking at the forests beast tide, the white-clothed lady that has been sitting cross-legged murmured to herself.
After the beast tide has passed, Du Shaofu continued to roast the Scarlet Fire Rabbit, the scent of roasted meat wafts through the air and this time, Du Shaofu took the initiative and tore off a whole rabbit leg and handed it over to the white-clothed lady.
The white-clothed lady did not hesitate, wrapping the leg with a handkerchief and started to nibble, however, instead of eating, it looks more like she’s reliving memories.
On the other side, Du Shaofu is the opposite devouring the Scarlet Fire Rabbit with just two to three big bites and having finished that did not seem to have quelled his hunger that he went on to roast the Mystical Iced Python as well.
"I’m not eating snake meat it looks kinda strange."
When the fragrant scent from the roasted snake drifts out, Du Shaofu again handed another piece of meat to the white-clothed lady but she refused to even look at it.
Du Shaofu didn’t mind it and continued scarfing down everything, once done he wiped clean his mouth and again start to comprehend the perfecting of Raging Storm Waves Palm.
Between comprehending and perfecting both martial skills, Du Shaofu noticed that perfecting Raging Storm Waves Palm is harder than Pulsate Fist. There exist some flaws and weaknesses he clearly was able to feel but unable to resolve it, stagnating his progress.
At this time, the intoxicating sound of the flute once again reached his ears, pulling him into the sound, cleansing his soul.
As he enters the vague world of the melodious flute, as if enlightened, the bottleneck he encounters with the Raging Storm Waves Palm fade away, swept away by the sound of raging storm waves.
"What a mesmerizing flute sound looks like someone arrived ahead of us."
In the distant mountains on a hilltop, an old man with hair white-as-cranes’ looked ahead towards the cliff, brows creased together.
"Crane Elders, are they from those several forces?" A middle-aged man asked.
"Don’t know, but we must hurry over quickly. We mustn’t allow other forces to have an advantage over us. Already two beast tides passed, something must have happened to the hegemonic existence that makes it clear the forest in such a way to prevent mishaps from occurring later.” The white-haired Oldman said.
Above, on the hilltop, Du Shaofu’s hands kept condensing seals as xuanqi flowed along specific meridians points for one complete turn, then gather in his palm again, at this moment his atmosphere suddenly changed drastically, with him as the center point terrifying layers of wave constantly swirled, endless myriad of energy gushing towards Du Shaofu’s body causing the surrounding space becoming unstable, ripples like water boiling. Du Shaofu’s momentum surged to the point of terror like a volcano about to erupt.
"Ei, extracting power from the pulse, Maidong level strength."
The white-clothed lady not far away, noticed the faint light between Du Shaofu’s eyebrows like it as interacting with a mysterious energy, her brown eyes widened in surprise much more than all the previous times.
"Raging Storm Waves Palm!"
Du Shaofu shouted then a palm shot out with xuanqi surging, an extremely loud explosion sounded in the air like a thunder that came out of nowhere. Stormy waves of wind energy collided multiple times with a vast masses of rock about a hundred meters away.
Rocks cracked then split into pieces of different sizes rolling down from the top of the cliff to the bottom. Silence ensued after a long echo through the mountains.
"Success at last."
Admiring the damage caused by his palm, a smile appeared on Du Shaofu’s face; finally improved part of Raging Storm Waves Palm, the actual power was higher than imagined. Still, Du Shaofu also feels Raging Storm Waves Palm can further enhance it’s just that the current level is his limit, to further enhance the skill; the heart is willing but lacks the strength.
"Gu lu lu~"
Looking at the sky it is already evening, his stomach began growling to signal that it is time to feed it. Du Shaofu found recently he seems to be turning into a glutton, even stranger is these days he did not spend any time to comprehend the mysterious stone tablet’s first style, however, his xuanqi capacity has again increased, brimming as if it is about to explode.
"I'm going down to get some food."
Du Shaofu said to the lady in white clothes who was sitting cross-legged, immediately after saying that he climbed down. He managed to reach the foot of the hill a lot faster for he had previous experience and he did not wander far just in case he encounter any high-level wicked beasts, just quickly gathered a couple of smaller wicked bodies and return to the hilltop.
Du Shaofu did not encounter any wicked beast, what he encountered was people, more than a dozen figures appeared in front of Du Shaofu, consist of the young as well as elderly, both men and women led by an Oldman wearing a black robe, his hand holding a peculiar looking copper rod
with a serpent twirling up the staff.
"Boy, who are you?"
A middle-aged man looked at Du Shaofu with doubt in his eyes, he is unable to sense any breath fluctuation of cultivation from the youth’s body, but there is an indication of xuanqi.
"There are powerful wicked beasts around it is better you leave quickly." Du Shaofu raised his head and looked at these people, every one of them had distinctive air stronger than his Eldest Uncle and Second Uncle, even those few young men and woman are not ordinary even more dazzling than the Du Clan younger generation.
"You have not given me an answer, who are you? Aren’t you afraid of beasts tide?"
The middle-aged man has a stomach full of doubts looked around, apart from the youth in front there are no other people in the vicinity, manage to survive two beasts tides the youth is definitely not an ordinary person.
"Who I am, needs not your concern."
Du Shaofu became upset, in recent days all he felt was vexation, and these people are behaving quite rudely thus naturally he too will not be polite. Facing these extraordinary people under normal circumstances, Du Shaofu wouldn’t be so blunt but now things different. Du Shaofu knows firsthand how strong the white-clothed lady is, he intuition tells him the white-clothed lady is stronger than these people thus letting caution fly out the window. After all, the white-clothed lady ate the meat he roast and abducted him to lure Fu Yibai that old bastard out so she wouldn’t actually disregard his little life.
"Where did this wild mountain boy crawl out from, do you know who we are, disaster will befall on you for disrespecting us."
Middle-aged man turned gloomy, he is an illustrious character, considered an authority in a reputed sect, never did he imagined he’ll be contradicted by such a young ignorant boy.
"Sky Serpent Sect truly is a dignified and prestigious force ah, even coming to Wild Beast Mountain to frighten a little boy, truly prestigious.”
The sound of a hearty laughter is heard emerging from the mountain depths roughly about ten people also with distinctive atmosphere including a few juvenile. The one who spoke was a very unique looking hefty bald man with strange azure lines similar to runes adding an edge to his atmosphere.
