Beastmaster of the Ages - Chapter 418
Chapter 418: – Nine Starry Qilin Obviously, the incident of Tianming beating the three Qin brothers had completely spread through the clan . The cause of the conflict was well known, and Tianming knew these people would continue provoking him with such derogatory words . And it wasn’t difficult for them to succeed .
This was a dead end with no solution .
Aware of that, Bai Zijin had erected a heavenly pattern barrier to isolate him from such disturbances . But today, Tianming wasn’t within a barrier . Bai Zijin was just about to say that the young man’s deliberate provocation was both childish and meaningless, but before the words could be spoken, Tianming had left her side .
She sighed, “Be careful, this young man isn’t easy to deal with . He’s at the Saint stage!”
Tianming could clearly see that . After all, the Saint stage was an entirely different stage from Heavenly Will, hence a wide gap in strength lay between them . This young man was at least seven or eight years younger than Jun Niancang, but already on the same cultivation level .
But so what? All Tianming wanted to do now was to tear his mouth apart!
“Tianming, remember clearly . The person who’s going to beat you today is I, Baili Zhuixing . This is the punishment you bear on your father’s behalf . Today’s the first payment, and I promise you a good time . Are you going to hide like a turtle your whole life? If so, the entire Ancient Qilin Clan will spend a romantic evening with your mother! Haha!”
Baili Zhuixing smiled maliciously, immediately clashing with Tianming’s murderous gaze .
“I was only going to rip your mouth off, but I changed my mind . I want your life!”
Drawing out the Grand-Orient Sword, all three of Tianming’s lifebound beasts appeared . The ferocity of the Primordial Chaos Beasts exploded, their momentum monstrous .
“Hahaha . . . . ” Upon hearing Tianming’s ‘shameless boasting’, Baili Zhuixing threw his head back in laughter . “What the hell! Defeating three at the ninth-level Heavenly Will has made you this cocky? Even if you’re a gifted triple beastmaster, Heavenly Will is just so . Are you thinking of defying destiny?”
Tianming’s response was to attack .
One man and three beasts, with Lan Huang as the main body, instantly clashed with Baili Zhuixing on his Nine Starry Qilin .
Weapons collided and sparks flew . The weapon in Baili Zhuixing’s hand had thirty saintly heavenly patterns and was called the Starry Swordbreaker . Weapon in hand, Baili Zhuixing cast a contemptuous gaze upon Tianming . A chance to beat Tianming up was something he yearned for .
Upon Tianming’s command, the Primordial Terraqua Dragon attacked the Nine Starry Qilin, driving it away from Baili Zhuixing . As the earth beneath their feet shook violently, the qilin was washed away by mud .
Ying Huo immediately swooped in for the kill, pinning the qilin to the ground . In the past, Ying Huo and Meow Meow had formed a strong team, but now, Lan Huang and Ying Huo were a better combination .
Lan Huang was tough, domineering, and much larger than the Nine Starry Qilin . With the quaking of the earth, the qilin was hit several times . Outraged, it demonstrated several abilities at once .
However, Ying Huo and Lan Huang possessed even more powerful abilities .
“Big Bro, kill this bastard for me . Tortoise Bro and I will handle this!” Ying Huo fumed .
Among the three lifebound beasts, its feelings for Wei Jing were the most profound . Even its name was given by her . Naturally, Ying Huo would be the most furious .
Climbing Tianming’s shoulder, Meow Meow didn’t transform into its Regal Chaosfiend form . Instead, it was enveloped in lightning and surged with devilish ki . Its blue eyes had turned bloody .
This was the advantage of a triple beastmaster—fighting two on one .
As soon as Tianming struck, Meow Meow dashed across, wrapped in Ninefold Chaos Thunderscape . Attracted by its Ninefold Chaos Thunderscape, huge snakes of electricity descended from the sky, forcing Baili Zhuixing to dodge .
Then, Tianming attacked from the front . Shenxiao Sword Art, second stage! Thunder and fire alternated, aggressive and fierce . Working with Meow Meow’s lightning, Tianming’s attack found its target .
“Useless!” sneered Baili Zhuixing . Starry Swordbreaker in hand, he unleashed an Earth Saint battle art known as the Starlight Art .
This was a mid-tier Earth Saint battle art that was in fact inferior to the Voidgod Sword Intent . However, he possessed the Saint Palace Spring, saint ki that could protect his body . The suppression of his stage was really strong .
Starlight Art—Meteor Flash!
Baili Zhuixing’s weapon burst into blazing starlight and collided with Tianming’s Shenxiao Sword Art .
The Grand-Orient Sword and Starry Swordbreaker clashed in a domineering contest of sword intent . Sparks flew as the two crisscrossed .
What shocked Baili Zhuixing was his lack of an advantage .
“How can a ninth-level Heavenly Will beastmaster have such strength? His battle art seems incomprehensible!”
However, he didn’t have time to dwell on that . Eyes cold, Tianming turned around again . In that instant, a black figure appeared beside Baili Zhuixing .
Meow Meow’s black thunder broke out . Despite its tiny body, the lightning ball that erupted was heaven-defying . Like a torrent sweeping through, it instantly formed a high-speed rotating lightning vortex that fell from the sky and crashed down onto Baili Zhuixing .
At the critical moment, a ball of starlight converged within Baili Zhuixing, most likely an ability of the Nine Starry Qilin . Then, Misty Hellthunder completely engulfed Baili Zhuixing and endless lightning crazily tore at the ball of starlight . This time, Baili Zhuixing’s expression cracked . He was anxious to escape from the bombardment of Meow Meow’s ability .
“Do you think you can escape?”
With a sneer, Tianming struck with the Grand-Orient Sword . Shenxiao Sword Art, third stage! The combination of three heavenly wills had been used to kill nineteen demon beasts, and was something Tianming had completely mastered .
Gritting his teeth, Baili Zhuixing waved his weapon in a burst of Starlight Art—Star Blaze . Dazzling starlight exploded from the Starry Swordbreaker, making it difficult to judge its position .
But would that matter? Tianming’s sword was directed at Baili Zhuixing’s head . Enveloped in three Heavenly Wills, the Grand-Orient Sword swept across . Flames roared and thunder burst; this one move was as heavy as a mountain .
Baili Zhuixing was forced to use his weapon to block the attack as, unfortunately, Misty Hellthunder had broken his shield . Thousands of electric snakes struck, scorching his flesh . Vomiting blood, he almost couldn’t hold on to his weapon to block Tianming’s attack .
This was a moment of life and death! Baili Zhuixing screamed and withdrew as fast as possible . The tip of the Grand-Orient Sword was just about to sink into his neck and behead him, but he managed to escape the fatal attack .
The tip of the sword swept across his lips, causing a bloody wound that enlarged his bleeding lips threefold . The stabbing pain on his face made Baili Zhuixing break out in tears . As he screamed, he pulled at the injury and worsened the pain .
“Ahh!!” Baili Zhuixing’s gaze had undergone a drastic change . Within it was now a trace of fear .
Being a Saint stage beastmaster, he was very confident of victory—even though his opponent was a gifted triple beastmaster . But facing reality, his confidence had been crushed . He knew that Tianming would kill him . If he had been slower by even a second, he would have lost his head by now . Eyes wide open, he was covered in cold sweat .
“You—” He wanted to speak, but the pain of his torn mouth prevented him from doing so .
At the moment between life and death, he suddenly threw a book in Tianming’s direction . This was definitely a heavenly pattern book . Unsure, Tianming retreated with Meow Meow .
The heavenly pattern book exploded right before his eyes, giving off a brilliant light that completely obscured his vision . This blazing starlight resembled a sword that could pierce through its target’s flesh, and Tianming was forced to retreat several steps .
When he finally caught up again, Baili Zhuixing was gone . The next moment, he appeared beside Ying Huo, placed his qilin back into his lifebound space, and threw out another book with the same heavenly pattern .
He was about to curse again as he fled, but the attempt tore at his wound, causing him to twist in pain . After the burst of starlight faded, Tianming and Meow Meow chased after him at their fastest speed .
However, Baili Zhuixing was determined to escape, even going so far as to use extremely valuable heavenly pattern books . By the time Tianming arrived at Ying Huo’s side, the young Saint had disappeared . However, Tianming still proceeded to chase after him .
“Why do you want to kill him so badly?” It took Bai Zijin a lot of effort to pull Tianming back .
“Even if he escapes this time, I must kill him the next time I see him . ” Tianming’s eyes dimmed .
“That young man is a direct descendant of Exalted Ling Xing,” said Bai Zijin .
“He still has to die . ” A murderous look surged in Tianming’s eyes .
“Can’t you take a little swearing when it comes to your mum?”
It might be great to be this young man’s mother, but as the person responsible for him, naturally, it was a headache .
“Yes . ” Despite having slowly calmed down, Tianming had committed Baili Zhuixing to memory .
“Now that everyone knows what your weakness is, anyone can provoke you, force you to attack, and even set a trap for you,” Bai Zijin explained .
“Does it matter? Don’t worry, I only attacked him after making sure I could kill him . If I wasn’t sure, I wouldn’t mind keeping him alive for a few more days . You may think that I’m impulsive and can’t stand provocation, but this is how I am,” replied Tianming .
No one was allowed to insult Wei Jing like this . If that was a weakness, he didn’t care .
“Alright,” sighed Bai Zijin as she stared at the fiery-eyed young man . “But you’re amazing to be able to defeat a Saint stage opponent at ninth-level Heavenly Will . ” His performance had impressed her yet again .
“If I was at ninth-level Heavenly Will, he would be a corpse now . ”
Tianming’s anger had yet to dissipate . Slicing his mouth wasn’t enough .
Failing to hear his words, Bai Zijin said, “Your character is so explosive that you can’t handle the slightest loss . When we get back, I’ll have to have a good talk with you . For example, to get back at someone, you don’t have to kill them . In fact, there’s all kinds of ways to make a person pay the price, such as beating the three brothers last time . After all, this is someone else’s territory, understand?”
Along the way, she shared a lot, much like a real older sister would . In fact, Bai Zijin’s advice was for his own good . If it were anyone else, silence was her default .
“Well, for Big Sister Bai’s sake, if I bump into him again, I won’t take his life . ”
Bai Zijin would have to answer to the Decimo Dao Palace if something happened to Tianming . He didn’t want to cause so much trouble for her .
“But I’ll still give him an unforgettable lesson,” Tianming added .
