The Chronicles of the Immortal God - Chapter 241
Chapter 241: Conduction, Radiation and…..
Saber Demon only wanted one thing on his life, that was to feed his beloved blade with the blood of his enemies. Of course, in a Sect like the Immortal God Sect, it was highly difficult for him to gather his much-needed blood.
Thus, he turned on taking countless missions for the sect. The missions that he usually takes are extermination or guard missions. It was at those missions that Saber Demon can freely feed his saber.
His true name was actually not Saber Demon. But his brutal exploits on the sect missions had earned him this moniker. He did not get angry by it. Instead he proudly wore that name.
“Hehehehe… I can feed my saber with more blood at this battle stage!” Saber Demon thought as he lovingly caressed his saber. “Just wait my lovely saber. I will make you have your fill later….”
Everyone who saw Saber Demon’s action grimaced, even those who were used to see him doing this. They were all disgusted with this creepy guy talking to a weapon as if it was his lover.
“Yeah, think all what you want.” Saber Demon thought to himself smugly. “Once my saber gets her fill, you shall see her glorious form!”
Saber Demon then looked at his opponent. His opponent was pudgy, with no part of him being thin. Saber Demon almost salivated as he imagined all the blood he can harvest from this fatty.
“Calm down, calm down. I am not allowed to kill anyone here… If I drained him of his blood, won’t that kill him? Tsk, tsk, tsk. I guess 1 liter is enough for now.” Saber Demon knew that he was only tolerated by the sect since he does not kill those who he harvests blood from. He only kills those that has to be killed.
Saber Demon was not willing to have that protection compromised even now.
“Let’s see… I have the Knight while he had the King. Hehehe, this shall be great!” Saber Demon laughed maniacally as he saw Fang Lin having the King Piece.
“Hehehe, even though this Fang Lin was one of the best genius of the Immortal Continent Branch, his experience still lacks compared to mine! Since our cultivation bases are similar, I will just torment him with my attacks!” Saber Demon rapidly formulated a plan on his head.
First, he will start taunting Fang Lin, as a way to weaken his fighting resolve. After that, he will harass him with his saber. This way of attacking will make Fang Lin unable to use any of his normal attacks. This will then force Fang Lin to use his most powerful attacks.
Once Fang Lin decided to do that, Saber Demon will use the boon of the Knight. Even if Fang Lin can use another powerful attack, Saber Demon will just use the remaining boon. After all, a Knight can use its boon twice on the King.
Saber Demon was sure that Fang Lin will be already out of attacks after that. What comes next was of course the blood-harvesting ceremony.
“Hehehe… where should I get the blood? The tummy? The chest? Or the neck? Bah! I’ll just use all those three!” Saber Demon tightened his grip on his saber, as he taught of the most vicious curses he can utter.
Silence filled between the two until the proctor said,
“Hey Fang Lin, you’re so fat you’re Mama had to-” Saber Demon’s taunt however was cut short when Fang Lin suddenly rushed towards him! Fang Lin did not waste any time after the proctor started the match. The ground under Fang Lin’s feet creaked as his legs erupted with power. This propelled Fang Lin towards Saber Demon.
Upon seeing this, Saber Demon sneered. He was well aware on what Fang Lin’s plan was. From the looks of it, Fang Lin wanted to finish Saber Demon off with his strongest move before Saber Demon could use his boon!
“Foolish thinking!” Saber Demon could only laugh at Fang Lin’s pathetic attempt to overturn his predicament. This chess-type battle had already been a custom part of the training for the disciples here in the God Continent Branch. Using boons instantly was already instinctual for Saber Demon.
Right after he thought of that, Saber Demon felt an extreme sense of danger from Fang Lin’s right hand. Fang Lin’s right hand was covered in three different colors, namely brown, red and black. Saber Demon knew that if he gets hit by that at his current cultivation base, he will be immediately defeated.
But instead of getting worried, Saber Demon was highly delighted. “So this is your most powerful attack? Not bad! Too bad for you, I am dispelling it now!” Saber Demon then mentally commanded his Knight to dispel the said attack.
After issuing the command, Saber Demon’s Knight Piece released a glowing orb that collided with Fang Lin’s right hand, which was barreling towards Saber Demon’s chest.
“Fwoosh.” The colors of Fang Lin’s right hand disappeared, along with the momentum and power it carried. Saber Demon sighed in relief as he felt the sense of danger from the right hand disappearing. He then smiled wider as he felt that he can use the boon on Fang Lin one more time.
“That kind of attack surely had a cooldown. Maybe at least five seconds. With the limitation of my Knight not allowing me to attack 1 second after the boon activation, it only gives me 4 seconds to defeat you. If I failed to defeat you within that timespan, I can just use my remaining boon to dispel that attack of yours should you opt to use it again. After that, I will just wait one more second, then your defeat will be absolute!”
After having these thoughts, Saber Demon jumped back a little as he waited for the one second limitation to finish. He also wanted to use that space to look for any weak parts on Fang Lin’s body. Saber Demon then opened his mouth to say the insult that he wanted to say to Fang Lin earlier.
“Hey Fang Lin, you’re so fat you’re Mama had to-” But he was again cut-off when he sensed danger coming from Fang Lin’s left hand. This time, Fang Lin’s left hand was holding a sword. 9 short knives were rotating around the sword.
Saber Demon knew that if he gets his by that 10 sharp weapons, his current body will be pierced without a doubt.
“What the hell? So you had one more special attack? But who cares, I will just dispel it!” Saber Demon then used his boon once more. Just like before, the glowing orb from the Knight made the sword and the knives disappear. After that, Saber Demon felt that he had no more available use for the Knight.
“That encounter lasted for a second. With that, there’s only 4 seconds before Fang Lin could use the attack on his right hand, while there’s possibly at least 5 seconds left for the left hand. By using one more second for the limitation, there’s 3 and 4 seconds left respectively for the hands. This means I only have 3 seconds left to defeat him!”
Saber Demon dropped his sly nature as he immediately used his sure-kill move. He did not want to use it this early, but this Fang Lin surely was talented enough to force him to use it.
“You’re good. But your power is not enough!” Saber Demon spread his legs evenly on the floor as he held his saber with his two hands. He then raised his saber above his head, with the saber pointing towards the skies.
His current pose was eerily similar to that of the golden-haired woman who wielded a golden blade.
“Hehehe, try to survive this, if you can!” Saber Demon was about to chant the name of his beloved saber when he felt something that made him falter.
Saber Demon felt another sense of danger, this time coming from Fang Lin’s right foot!
Just as Fang Lin’s right foot landed on the stage, Saber Demon felt monstrous amounts of Ice and Fire qi erupting from that foot. These two types of qi combined together, forming a tornado that engulfed Saber Demon. With no boon to dispel this attack, Saber Demon could only watch as he gets swallowed by the tornado.
“Ahh!!!” Saber Demon shrieked from pain as he felt the intense cold and heat assaulting his body.
He tried using his saber to disperse the tornado, but he found out that his qi turned sluggish, as if the cold prevented it from circulating.
He tried to move his body, but he was not able to do so, as the heat wreaked havoc on his tissues. The tornado continued engulfing Saber Demon until he could not take it anymore. His knees buckled as he let go of his saber. The last thing that he heard before his thoughts went black was Fang Lin muttering,
“First Step: Convection Twister!”
