However, once Xiao Bilan's attack struck the shield composed from ice, the shield instantly shattered apart into smithereens and turned into wisps of Qi that returned to the world. Same with Xiao Bilan's attack which also shattered into bits upon hitting the shield and rapidly turned into slivers of Qi that disappeared into the world.
Seeing how overwhelming Xiao Bilan's attack was, the cultivator that sent out that Ice Qi attack at her, quickly backed away a bit with a slightly startled expression manifesting in his face.
He then said inwardly as he did that, 'Wow! See how her attack splintered my offensive and defense. This must be one genius female cultivator from a powerful sect. Ugh! Why did I pick on her? I have to get out of here before I am doomed.'
And as he was thinking this, the other two males who stood by his side, also began to surprisingly ponder the same thing.
They couldn't believe X
While Zhu Lian who stood where she was, remained there with a smile in her face.She then walked towards the place that one of her female challengers was knocked to and picked her up to place her beside the second female cultivator that she fought with and knocked out.Then with a smile appearing in her face as she waited for them to wake, space began to warp around their bodies, which then caused their bodies to vanish the next moment.Seeing that their bodies had teleported away before her, Zhu Lian immediately recalled that whenever an opponent was struck to the ground and became totally unconscious, their bodies will immediately teleport out of this place and appear in the outside world.So, once she remembered this, she uttered with an awry expression appearing in her face, "Ugh. I would have loved them to really know what happened between me and Half-Moon Saber. Anyway, they are gone now. And I
Once Xiao Bilan said that, the legacy-bestowing spirit nodded her head and said, "Okay then. Will bring bring him out "Then in the next instant, Max appeared a feet before Xiao Bilan and Zhu Lian who gazed at him with all sorts of expressions appearing in their faces. They didn't know whether to dash towards him and beat him up, or whether to shout at him for leaving them alone. But in the end, they walked towards him and embraced him as they did many moments ago.Xiao Bilan then said, "I and Zhu Lian have missed you so much. Why did you leave us to ourselves, you annoying mortal?"While Max who was careful enough to not ruin the moment, said calmly and slowly, "I am sorry, Xiao Bilan. Actually, it was the legacy-bestowing spirit that moved me away from the legacy battle ground and made me pass through some trial of my own where she assessed my strength, speed and so on."Zhu Lian
The instant that sounded out from within the statue before them, Xiao Bilan's, Zhu Lian's and Max's eyes shone with looks of shock appearing in their faces.They weren't expecting the statue to talk to them the way that I just did now.Then quickly thinking of what to do next, Xiao Bilan and Zhu Lian bowed once again to the statue with expressions of veneration appearing in their faces. While Max who could immediately notice what they did, also bowed to the statue once again."Alright. You can relax yourselves now", Sounded out from the statue which was currently gazing at them with glowing eyes.The moment it said that, Xiao Bilan's group straightened themselves back from their full bowing position and began to look at it with awed expressions in their faces.They just couldn't believe that the Dragonness's statue would be able to talk to them like it were a real, living b
Once the Dragonness said that, Xiao Bilan and Zhu Lian looked at her with puzzled expressions in their faces.Then Xiao Bilan whose curiosity was provoked, proceeded to ask the Dragonness a question that abruptly surfaced in her mind, "Senior Dragonness, if you don't mind, what mistake was that?""The mistake of turning down all my suitors and chasing them away with threats of life and death battles if they ever came to me again with the idea of marriage.""I was young and foolish then. But even after so many million years where I should have gotten wiser, I still remained foolish. But all that could be blamed on my peerless adamancy on being the strongest cultivator, not 'strongest female cultivator', but strongest cultivator in the world.""I had this wild dream of becoming the Absolute Strongest, a matchless divine being, a true sovereign of incomparable strength and power in our boundlessly vast cultivation world; an actual feat that has never been ac
"Wow! Really?" Xiao Bilan asked with astonished eyes."Yes" The Dragonness replied.She then spoke further, "So, I created this treasure that is preserving my soul flame with the intent of passing down my instructions, skills and other secrets to my successors, just in case anything happened to me during any of my exceedingly dangerous adventurous explorations in forbidden, uncharted regions out there.""Therefore, you shouldn't see it as strange, or that I could guess that I was going to be wiped out soon. It is just one of the many usual practices of cultivators of every ranks in our world, which is to keep their treasures some places for someone who would go on to become their successors, to find them and add to their accumulations, once he or she couldn't make it out of where they knowingly or unknowingly ventured into.""Right, senior Dragonness." Xiao Bilan said with a nod of her he
"Wow! Well, although I don't know if I would be able to beat that thing, but I will certainly do my best to prevent this world, which I have taken a liking to from being destroyed by some monstrously powerful being" Max said while the statue nodded it head.The statue then spoke further by asking, "Its seems that you are interested in Azurethure stones, right?"Hearing what the Dragonness said, Max immediately nodded his head.He then said, "Yes, senior, I have interest in Azurethure stones.""Alright. Well, I happen to have a pretty large amount of Azurethure stones that I can give you, provided you will tell me what you want to do with them, because from my own point of view, they will only be wasted in your hands." The Dragonness said while Max only gave an awry smile.Huuuuu!He deeply inhaled.He then started after thinking of so many things, with one of them being that the Dragonness wouldn't be able to do anything with the piec
Haha!The Dragonness cackled.She then said, "Alright, Max. I will take you out of here now."Then she continued, "And don't worry yourself about how Zhu Lian and Xiao Bilan are going to find you. As we speak now, I have invisibly marked you with a wisp of my ethereal Soul Flame energy which would serve as an indicator or tracer for me. So, once they are done with receiving my transmissions, I will instantly teleport them to wherever you are.""Oh. That's great. I will like to see them one last time before we all separate." Max said with a slight smile in his face.He then hurriedly spoke further once he recalled something, "And Dragonness, please don't teleport them in when I am naked."Haha!The Dragonness cackled again."Then don't be naked!" She said while Max produced an awry smile in his face."Alright. It's time to bring you out of here" The Dragonness said while Max nodded his head.Then before the legacy-
"What? I actually entered into a carriage that has thieves hiding in it? Haha. No wonder you guys were so rude to me whenever I asked you guys a question" Max said with shock in his eyes.Then before any of the thieves could say anything, Max asked, "So, where's your hideout? I mean, a place that you guys stay and keep the things that you stole?"Once he asked that question, the thieves looked at him with stupendous looks in their faces.One of them then said, "Boy, you should shut up your mouth and give us what we want. Or we will immediately impale you with our spears!"Haha!Max chuckled.He then said, "I will really love to see you guys try."The instant he said that, one of the thieves suddenly said, "That's it!"He then aimed his spear towards Max's neck to viciously impale him with it.Swoosh!Bang!Crack!Different types of sounds immediately rang out as the spear shot towards Max's neck, sta
