Fury Towards The Burning Heaven Chapter 93
A tremendous explosion echoed, and the giant body of the Ice Beast got sent flying into a patch of short trees, crushing them as it went. Two stone peaks got shattered into pieces while Jiang Yi was blasted in the other direction.
Jiang Yi's entire body was shivering uncontrollably, and his teeth were chattering non-stop. His body was curled up and was obviously suffering from frostbites. His eyebrows and lips were frosted, and his face wasn't looking good.
"Young Master Jiang!"
Qian Fu and the others came over in a flurry. Before they could even approach Jiang Yi, their eyes were attracted by a bellow of rage from a distance!
That Ice Beast roared towards the sky. The fresh red blood stains on the skin were instantly frozen. Its icy cold eyes were filled with wrath—it swept its eyes across everyone and lunged over.
Qian Fu let out a deep sigh. This Ice Beast was extremely fast; since it had locked its sights on everyone here, it would not stop killing until everyone was dead. Rather than waiting for it to kill them, why not take a risk and fight? They might not be able to slay this Ice Beast, but if they dragged out enough time, the college's patrol team would arrive, giving them the opportunity to survive.
"Everyone, back off and use the crossbow to coordinate the attacks."
After the series of attacks from Jiang Yi, Su Ruoxue managed to recover her body conditions. She took a glance at Jiang Yi with an expression that was overflowing with killing aura. She lifted her sword, tipped on the surface of the ground like a beautiful butterfly, and launched her attacks on the Ice Beast once again.
Qian Fu and his men stood where they were and reloaded the crossbow, looking for an opportunity to shoot. But that Ice Beast seemed to sense something, and its body began to evade with speed, not allowing Su Ruoxue to get close to it. The Ice Beast constantly spat out the freezing breath and ice arrows, causing Su Ruoxue to not have any way to utilize her recovered strength. The freezing breath affected the body and progressively decreased her speed.
Qian Fu thought it was going to be bad if this carried on. The best he could do was to clench his teeth and give the orders. Everyone took aim and activated the mechanism on the crossbow. Five glittering black crossbow bolts pierced through the air and flew over.
A pity that the Ice Beast was already prepared. With a quick move, it easily evaded the crossbow bolts; and while it was evading, it instantly turned its body and rushed towards them.
Qian Fu saw that Jiang Yi was still trembling on the ground; hence, he gently gave Jiang Yi a kick to send him away. He then drew the longsword from his waist and attacked the Ice Beast.
The Ice Beast was shooting out ice arrows from its mouth as though it was free, shooting out seven or eight ice arrows in an instant. Most of them were at the seventh or eighth stage of the Cast Tripod Realm—only Qian Fu was at the ninth stage. Apart from Qian Fu, none of the others were able to evade the attacks and were all shot down by the ice arrows. Fortunately, the Ice Beast was standing from a distance, and everyone managed to dodge getting hit at any fatal spot!
That Ice Beast approached rapidly and let out a huge freezing breath. Qian Fu was the only one who could escape the breath while the rest were instantaneously turned in ice sculptures due to their decreased speed caused by the injuries. It was unknown whether they were still alive.
"Ahh! I will kill you, you b*stard!"
Qian Fu's eyes were fuming with red light. When he saw his brothers being turned into ice sculptures, he immediately went berserk. His longsword glinted with blue light as he burst towards the Ice Beast.
"Qian Fu, withdraw!"
Su Ruoxue's charming face was now extremely dark. Her cadets were being slain by the Ice Beast, and even if the college didn't investigate on her, she would still be unable to pass her own conscience. The appearance of this Ice Beast might have been abnormal, but it was still her negligence while on duty.
But Qian Fu was now in a berserk state. No matter how Su Ruoxue reprimanded him, he was still rushing towards the Ice Beast. But before he could even get near, he was turned into an ice sculpture by the freezing breath.
Jiang Yi's body was still trembling. He constantly struggled to get up, but he would still end up falling onto the ground. He was able to see the entire situation clearly from where he was. Qian Fu and the others might be Qian Wanguan's subordinates, but he did receive lots of care from them. They even prepared all the daily meals for him. After so many days, even a dog would feel touched—not to mention, a human. Now that he saw all of them in an unknown state of life and death, his heart was so anxious like it was burning. His eyes were staring so hard that it was going to burst. Had he not been so stubborn to insist on coming over, they wouldn't be in this predicament.
The Ice Beast could feel Su Ruoxue's killing intent which was soaring through the sky. It turned and saw her lightning-fast thrust and promptly let out a freezing breath. It then propelled its body far away and began another guerilla assault.
This Ice Beast was a tier-two high-grade demonic beast, and the freezing aura on its body was simply the bane for all martial artists. If the martial artist didn't have a competent ability, they wouldn't be able to break through the interference from the freezing aura and attack the beast. Once the martial artist succumbed to the freezing aura, the martial artist's speed and reaction ability gradually would become slower. Soon, they would finally be worn to death by the beast.
It was obvious that Su Ruoxue didn't have the strength to slay the Ice Beast in a single move, even though she was currently abnormally furious and even fighting as though her life depended on it. Right now, her body was being assailed by the freezing aura: her speed and reaction ability was now so far off from her prime condition. If this continued on without any reinforcement, her ending would definitely not be wonderful.
But this was the weird point!
The Ice Beast had such a prominent presence, all the cadets had already descended the mountain, and this area was where the patrol team regularly patrolled. Right now, there were no reinforcements appearing, not even the signs of any reinforcements.
Soon enough, Su Ruoxue's speed was becoming slower over time, and the amount of freezing aura that invaded her body was increasing over time. Finally, she was hit in the abdomen by an ice arrow that was shot out by the Ice Beast. Her body flew and crashed heavily on a boulder. She desperately climbed back up and vomited a mouthful of fresh blood. Su Ruoxue looked over at Jiang Yi and used all her strength to shout, "Jiang Yi, run quickly!"
Jiang Yi was in a state of desperation, too. When he saw the Ice Beast rushing over at Su Ruoxue and opened its freezing mouth, seemingly going to consume Su Ruoxue as its food, he helplessly shut his eyes!
The entire surrounding was quiet, and the patrolling team had yet to arrive. There weren't going to be any experts that would pass by this wilderness. Even if the cadets that were at the bottom of the mountains went to call for help from the college, they already became food in the stomach of this Ice Beast by the time any help arrived.
No! I cannot die. Xiaonu is still waiting for me to find the healer to save her. Mother is still waiting for me in the underworld to seek vengeance against Jiang Bieli. How can I die this easily?
Jiang Yi shook his head unceasingly and suddenly opened his eyes. He stared at the Ice Beast with fixed eyes, and the killing aura from his body suddenly surged without any limit. The killing aura was growing intensively dense; his eyes were gradually turning red and finally into blood red!
Just like the eyes of the Heaven Monarch of Massacre—frightening red!
"Kill, kill, kill!"
Jiang Yi suddenly shouted and stood up. The originally trembling body didn't have any traces of shaking. He strode towards the Ice Beast with large steps. With every step he took, his killing aura would continue to intensify, even to the point of shrouding the radius of a few miles.
There was something even stranger—
That Ice Beast was now just ten feet away from Su Ruoxue and could simply swallow Su Ruoxue. But its body stood still like it was frightened to see Jiang Yi walking over. Its icy cold eyes were filled with fear, and its body started to shiver. It ended up prostrate on the ground, not daring to move even a single step.
Su Ruoxue, who closed her eyes and waited for death, could feel that the Ice Beast was just a few feet away. She could even seemingly smell the presence of death, but this Ice Beast suddenly stopped. She opened her eyes consciously and saw the odd behavior of this Ice Beast. At the same time, she could feel an even more terrifying killing aura than the Ice Beast's freezing aura.
She looked over at the direction where the Ice Beast was looking at and saw this pair of blood red eyes. She paused; her beautiful eyes suddenly shrank. She then exclaimed, "This… is this the legendary Massacre Intent? Jiang Yi actually realized it?!"
