848 Why Didn’t You Say That You Were So Strong Earlier! (3)
With its speed, it instantly got close. It controlled the fish bone and stabbed fiercely at the giant mirror.
The face on the giant mirror abruptly looked at Xu Qing. Just as it was about to speak, its expression changed drastically.
The fish bone ignored all the defense of the mirror and directly penetrated it, piercing into the mirror like a hot knife through butter.
With a cracking sound, the mirror shattered.
Xu Qing didn’t look at Duanmu Zang. He turned and waved his hand.
The poison in the surroundings headed straight for him. It was the same for the shadow. The fish bone transformed into a red light and landed in Xu Qing’s hand.
Xu Qing’s speed erupted as he headed straight for the distance, fleeing from this place.
From the start to the end, he didn’t say a word.
He arrived like lightning and left silently.
At that moment, the giant mirror trembled intensely. The cracks on it continued to spread and its face distorted. Its expression changed rapidly as it stared fixedly at Xu Qing who had left.
As for Duanmu Zang, who was trapped by it, he also gasped. After that, he hurriedly stopped the self-destruction of his nascent soul and rushed out through the gap. He then swung the collapsed secret repository toward the giant mirror.
More cracks appeared on the mirror and fell from the sky, smashing into the magma.
The face inside opened as though it wanted to say something, but the damage was so serious that it was difficult for it to transmit its divine sense.
Duanmu Zang let out a cold snort and spat a mouthful of thick phlegm at it.
This phlegm was very heavy and smashed into the mirror’s surface, causing it to sink into the magma.
After doing this, Duanmu Zang turned and left rapidly.
Six hours after they left, a firestorm stirred up in the distance. There was a huge figure in it. It wore a golden robe and had no face. Its entire face was a golden mirror.
He rushed over and stopped here, lowering his head to look at the magma.
The image of the surroundings was reflected on his face.
After a long time, he grabbed at the air. The mirror that had sunk into the magma was instantly retrieved. He held it for a while, and from within the mirror face, a cold voice emanated.
At the same time, on the Heavenly Fire Sea 5,000 kilometers away, Xu Qing was still speeding away. He didn’t stop at all for the past three days. While hiding himself, he continued to approach the shore.
During these three days, the sky here became brighter and the flames seemed to be a little denser than before. The blooming of magma flowers also became more frequent.
This caused the temperature here to continue rising and spread a feeling of burning souls.
“I have to return to the shore as soon as possible. If this continues, even if my body can still hold on, my soul will melt.”
Xu Qing felt the drying feeling from his hair and his soul showed some signs of drying. He pondered and was about to continue moving forward when he calmly spoke at the next instant.
“Senior, you’ve followed me for so long, there’s no need for it.”
A long time later, Xu Qing continued to move forward.
During these three days, he would do this every two hours.
Although he could sense the aura of the Poison Restriction, Xu Qing understood that once he made a certain understanding a habit, it would cause negligence. In this chaotic world, a single negligence might result in a miserable outcome.
Hence, even though he didn’t sense the aura of the Poison Restriction, he still spoke like this.
Just like that, another day passed. Xu Qing stopped in his tracks and spoke calmly.
“Senior, do you like to hide so much?”
This time, there was a response…
A surprised voice rang out from more than 100 feet to Xu Qing’s right. That place quickly distorted and Duanmu Zang’s body was revealed.
There was a bubble outside his body that isolated some of his aura. There was also a cloth wrapped around his right hand. It was this item that completely isolated the aura of the Poison Restriction.
Xu Qing’s eyes narrowed. He took a look and vaguely felt that it was a little familiar.
‘How did this kid sense me?’
Duanmu Zang was puzzled. When he thought of Xu Qing’s attack earlier, he felt that there was a high chance that the other party still had some strange methods hidden.
‘Of course, it’s also possible that this kid has been shouting like this every once in a while!’
Duanmu Zang let out a cold snort in his heart. He noticed Xu Qing’s gaze on the cloth in his right hand but didn’t explain. Instead, he glared at Xu Qing.
“Kid, you’re so heartless!”
“This old man has no intention of harming you. I even gave you a box to hide the aura of the heavenly fire crystals, but you gave me a fake antidote!”
Xu Qing frowned.
“However, seeing that you helped me out earlier, I won’t fuss over it.” Seeing Xu Qing frown, the old man’s tone hurriedly softened. After that, he lifted his hand and coughed.
“We’re all humans. Why don’t… you remove it for me?”
Xu Qing’s expression was as usual as he calmly spoke.
“10,000 spirit stones!”
The old man took a deep breath and glared at Xu Qing. After a long time, he smiled bitterly and shook his head. He then threw out a storage bag. It was the same storage bag which Xu Qing had given to him previously.
After Xu Qing took it, he counted and confirmed that there was nothing wrong.
Seeing that Xu Qing still wanted to count, the old man’s temper rose again. However, he still endured it.
“Is that okay?”
Xu Qing nodded. He then lifted his right hand and grabbed at the old man. Immediately, the old man’s body trembled and the power of the Poison Restriction in his body instantly surged. Amidst his pained expression, it crawled out of his body.
In the end, it transformed into a black fog that headed straight for Xu Qing. It fused into Xu Qing’s body and disappeared.
With the disappearance of the Poison Restriction, the old man clearly felt his body relax. The power of his cultivation surged and his recovery began to return to normal.
He heaved a long sigh of relief and looked at Xu Qing.
Xu Qing took a few steps back with an extremely vigilant expression.
The old man’s eyes widened.
“Kid, considering how powerful you are, why didn’t you attack during those first two times and instead had me step in?”
“I didn’t have the chance,” Xu Qing replied calmly, speaking the truth.
