It flew away…
It flew away just like that!
It actually flew away just like that!
“Oh, fuck!” The blond man’s expression froze for two seconds. He jumped out of his sleeping bag and parted his tent with a wide swinging motion, chasing them out of his tent.
Originally, he was celebrating to himself that the sword had flown back to him in the middle of the night, and from now on he would be invincible with the two swords united.
Unexpectedly, that damned thing wasn’t returning to him, but was here to abduct his white sword!
How could he possibly tolerate this? This was definitely, definitely intolerable!
Just as he came charging out of his tent, in the light of the bonfire, he saw a man of eastern descent flying in his direction while riding on a huge icy blue dragon, and the two swords were flying towards him!
He instantly understood why that red sword would return to seduce his white sword.
The blond man looked at that eastern man, his eyes filled with bloodlust, and cried out, “Kill him!” Following a wave of his hand, the beastmasters behind him all summoned their subdued beasts one after another, charging forward in unison.
As Zhang Che approached the camp atop the Darkfiend Abyssal Dragon, everyone in the camp was jolted awake. He couldn’t help but have a bad premonition, thinking that he should just turn back immediately.
In any case, it was impossible for that ungrateful red sword to belong to him now. It was better to not get into a conflict with those in the camp, or it’d be hard to settle the matter.
When he saw a group of people, men and women, dark and fair skinned, coming out of their tents and summoning a bunch of subdued beasts and looking at him warily, Zhang Che suddenly froze.
It wasn’t the hostile looks from those foreign beastmasters that stunned Zhang Che, however. Instead, he realized that two streaks of light, one red and the other white, had suddenly shot out from the tent in the middle of the camp, and were flying his way!
Just as he took out the Scarlet Meteorite Huge Sword and had the Scarlet Flame Drake and Darkfiend Abyssal Dragon get ready for battle, Zhang Che saw the two streaks of light suddenly stopping in place a short distance in front of him, and each of them let out a clear sword cry, slowly flying towards him.
-Isn’t that red sword that ungrateful thing from earlier!?
-But what is that white sword?-
Before Zhang Che could react to this, the two swords suddenly turned into streaks of light and shot towards the center of his brow, not giving him any time for defensive maneuvers.
-Shit, I’m going to die!- Zhang Che was greatly alarmed. Just as he wanted to ask the rainbow crystal in his spiritual sea to help suppress the situation, he realized the two streaks of light didn’t cause any harm to him at all. They shot into his spiritual sea, entering from between his brows, and turned into two streaks of light, one red and the other white, swimming around happily under the rainbow crystal.
-This is… I actually misunderstood the red sword!-
Not only was this fellow not an ingrate, it actually gave him a two-for-one offer, bringing the white sword to him!
-Hahahaha!- Zhang Che nearly laughed out loud… but caught himself. The furious blond man came rushing out from his tent and stared at him, his eyes filled with anger and distress. The blond man waved his hand. The entire camp of subdued beasts belonging to about a dozen beastmasters came charging at Zhang Che simultaneously.
That concentrated spread of beasts came charging at him with ferocious momentum, nearly causing Zhang Che to wet his pants.
-What the heck, foreigners are really unfriendly!
-I finally found some fellow humans and came over to say hi. Did you have to act like you’re going to war?-
With a rough glance, Zhang Che saw that the subdued beasts were all gold-quality at least. They were even quite a few legend-quality among them!
Was there any way to win this fight? They were swarming him with numbers; he didn’t have a chance even if it was a verbal fight!
-Since they are so unwelcoming, I’ll just run!-
At his command, the Darkfiend Abyssal Dragon turned around urgently and brought forth his greatest speed, escaping into the darkness of the night.
Behind them, many colors flared up, one after another. All kinds of elemental attacks, like fireballs, icicles, lightning, and even poison mists came flying at him, pounding the place he was at a moment ago into ruin.
A huge air current swept over them from behind, nearly flipping over the Darkfiend Abyssal Dragon, who had just accelerated. A powerful shockwave reached them, instantly vaporizing a section of the Darkfiend Abyssal Dragon’s tail.
The air current swept through, directly penetrating the Darkfiend Abyssal Dragon’s aura that acted as a shield to the oncoming wind, blowing Zhang Che astray, and he nearly fell from the dragon’s back.
If he hadn’t reach out in time and grabbed onto the whiskers on the Darkfiend Abyssal Dragon’s back, he would probably drowned under the army of pursuing subdued beasts if he fell.
-Damn it, bullying me by flaunting your numbers, huh?!-
Zhang Che was depressed. He wanted to curse at them, but they wouldn’t understand him anyway. In addition, although he had an army of powerful babies too, the number of beasts he had couldn’t compare to all of them!
The circumstances didn’t favor him; he couldn’t do anything but endure!
The Darkfiend Abyssal Dragon finally accelerated to his maximum speed, gradually shaking off the pursuing army.
From afar, Zhang Che could vaguely hear them cursing out loudly. Their voices were filled with anger and unwillingness. It was like a man had found out his spouse was cheating on him and was about to go confront them with a chopper in hand, and in the end he accidentally alarmed the adulterous couple and could only watch as they ran away, unable to catch up.
After the Darkfiend Abyssal Dragon had retreated about a hundred kilometers away from that area, Zhang Che finally heaved a sigh of relief. -You shouldn’t be able to catch up now, right?-
It was currently in the middle of the night. Zhang Che didn’t dare to let the Darkfiend Abyssal Dragon continue flying around randomly. His safety would be an issue if they encountered any powerful creatures.
Using his usual method, Zhang Che had the Purple Crystal Tortoise dig out a cave from the side of a mountain. After he hid himself in there, he then ordered the Purple Crystal Tortoise to seal up the entrance, and did some disguise work on the outside. No one would ever think that he actually hidden in the body of a mountain.
It was only after securing a safe place that Zhang Che thought of checking his harvests.
Speaking of which, the events tonight were truly filled with many twists and turns. No one could have imagined that.
Zhang Che couldn’t help but wonder, -If I didn’t go chasing after it, would that red sword have flown over a hundred kilometers to repay its gratitude after hooking up with the white sword?-
Right, repaying its gratitude. That was what Zhang Che thought!
If it wasn’t repaying its gratitude, the red sword would have flown away. Why would it fly back to him, and even bring the white sister along? Oh, no, why did it bring the white, flawless sword back with it?
The two-for-one offer was truly worth it! Zhang Che really hoped that more things like this would happen!
He calmed down and focused on his spiritual sea. Zhang Che saw the two streaks of light, red and white, happily swimming around under the rainbow crystal like a pair of fish.
With a thought of his, the two streaks of light instantly flew out of his spiritual sea and materialized into two swords, one red and the other white, in each of his hands.
Wielding the two swords, the red felt hot, and the white felt icy cool.
They were actually ice and fire attributed!
Zhang Che was amazed. Looking closely at the two swords in his hands, he realized that other than their colors, they were identical in both shape and length. The swords were about a hundred and twenty centimeters long, the blades about five centimeters wide, and extremely thin, with no obvious blade spine. The blades looked as if they had been polished from two translucent crystals.
On the mirror-smooth blades, which easily reflected his face, light was flowing through them, as if they contained the essence of the gods. One look and you could tell they were extraordinary.
To be able to turn into a streak of light and enter a person’s spiritual sea, naturally it wouldn’t be anything ordinary.
-Tsk, tsk. Will I be able to ascend into a Sword Immortal in the future, gaining the ability to kill others from a thousand miles away?- Zhang Che couldn’t help but look forward to the future when he thought about both swords having the ability to fly.
