Chapter 418 – Ghostly King Boss!
“What is he trying to do?”
“I don’t know. I feel like I don’t understand him the more time goes by.”
“Big sister, do you think he’s a masochist?”
“My guess is that it’s possible… maybe… it should be it, right?”
The four of them stood there staring at Luo Tian.
They were watching him standing in the center of the ghostly beasts and allowing them to freely attack and not using any sign of defensive powers. He was only using his fleshly body to resist and didn’t seem to have any intention of fighting back. His whole body was covered in blood and wounds. Some of the wounds were so deep that blood didn’t stop coming out and his bones could be seen.
But Luo Tian had no thoughts of stopping.
“He’s training his fleshly body!”
“Striking one’s fleshly body by using the powerful physical strength of a ghostly beast that contains immortal force – this will allow one’s body to become more resilient and become adapted to attacks with immortal force. Luo Tian is truly very strong. I’ve finally understood why Elder Wu Nian would bring him back to Mount Hua” said Han Hua in a soft voice. Her heart started boiling up when she watched Luo Tian endure the attacks by the ghostly beasts.
Yun Ling stuck out her tongue and said: “Does he really have to do that? I almost cannot watch any further. Junior brother Luo is practically being self-destructive. If he can’t resist anymore, he might accidentally die from it. This is way too dangerous.”
Yun Yi also added: “That’s right. Senior sister, you should have him quickly stop.”
The twin flowers were getting worried.
The attacks from the ghostly beasts were very strong, and they all contained immortal force. When each strike landed on Luo Tian’s body, he almost fainted from the pain and could barely hold on.
This was unbearable pain!
But he desperately clenched his teeth. When he recalled the words Han Hai said before his death, his heart tightened. “Do not get on the Life and Death stage. Do not fight with Zhang Kuang because you are not his opponent. His control over immortal force has already surpassed the outer sect Elders. You are not his opponent so do not fight with him.”
These words continued to revolve around Luo Tian’s heart.
He was really annoyed!
He had never been this annoyed his entire life.
He has also never felt like wanting to kill a person that much until now.
He wanted to use absolute strength to crush Zhang Kuang. He wanted Zhang Kuang’s attacks to be useless against him. He wanted all those people who looked down on others to have a good look. He also wanted Han Hai to see everything while peering down from heaven.
Luo Tian roared into the air while blood continued flowing out of his body. He consumed several Healing Pills and then cast multiple Healing Art spells in a row in order for the wounds on his body to heal up.
At this moment…
Luo Tian roared out once more: “Come at me again! You damn pieces of trash, is that all the strength you’ve got?!”
The ghostly beasts acted like they had been angered and their powers became stronger.
Their actions became even crazier.
Yun Ling and Yun Yi didn’t dare to continue watching.
Han Hua was clenching her fists before sitting down and absorbing immortal energy.
Zhao Chen walked over to a corner and started practicing the defensive array Luo Tian taught him.
Yun Ling and Yun Yi glanced at each other before sitting down cross-legged as well.
They were each affected by Luo Tian’s performance so they all became serious. Because of Luo Tian, their abilities were increasing at a rapid rate.
As for Luo Tian…
He was crazier than the rest! When those ghostly beasts reached an exhausted state, he started showing a smile of death. The Seven Star Sword appeared, and he started chopping off the heads of those ghostly beasts one at a time! His immortal energy points started soaring!
His experience points were soaring!
The most important point was Luo Tian’s fleshly body. After being tempered by the attack of the ghostly beasts, his fleshly body was just like a sponge absorbing everything like crazy.
Luo Tian could now even resist the violent force that level 6 Berserk brought upon his body!
He didn’t increase the level of Berserk because leveling up was more important right now.
Three days later.
Deep inside the Dark Abyss Valley was a pitch-black cave. The cave would occasionally give off red flashes and a series of strange wails. The cave entrance was covered in the aura of death that instantly caused fear to sprout up in people.
“This is the Dark Abyss Cave,” said Han Hua.
The cave entrance was very narrow where only two people could enter side by side. And the line of sight was extremely poor. If people hid in this place for an ambush, most likely even experts of immortal sects at the Profound Venerate realm would be easily killed. There was basically no place for one to dodge out of the way.
Luo Tian’s brows furrowed and asked: “How’s the situation inside the cave?”
Han Hua replied: “The Dark Abyss Cave is split into three levels, and each level is larger than the next. It is practically an underground world. The ghostly beasts get stronger at each level, and the lowest-ranked ghostly beast inside is stronger than the ones in the valley. Last time we went inside, it was our second excursion and also the time where a senior brother died.”
Luo Tian was in thought for a bit before asking: “What’s the condition for completing the mission?”
Han Hua replied: “The Flower of Death.”
Luo Tian blanked out a bit and couldn’t help asking: “Flower of Death? What is that?”
Han Hua explained: “The Flower of Death is a legendary spiritual herb and is the main ingredient to concoct the Lost Soul Pill. The mission was issued by an inner sect Elder ten years ago and no one has been able to complete it. It has become the Merit Hall’s longest-standing mission of all time. Because no one has been able to complete it, the merit points of it have been rising like a rocket.
“Lost Soul Pill?!”
Luo Tian was startled by it because he has never heard of such a medicinal pill. Hearing the name makes it sound like some evil item, so he started saying to himself: “Inner sect Elder? The only person capable of concocting this pill is most likely old daoist Tian Ling. What is he trying to do with that pill? A mission like this can be issued in the inner sect, so why would it be in the outer sect? Isn’t this the same as sending outer sect disciples to their deaths?”
A mission of this degree of difficulty had already surpassed the capabilities of an outer sect disciple.
But no matter what…
Since they’ve already arrived here, they might as well go in and take a look.
In other words…
The ghostly beasts of Dark Abyss Valley had been cleared up by Luo Tian and not a single one was left behind. He was still missing a little bit of experience points from leveling to the Profound Ancestor 4th rank. If he was able to break through to the Profound Ancestor 8th rank with what time he had left, Luo Tian believes he will have enough strength to contend with Zhang Kuang.
Luo Tian’s brows furrowed before he said: “You guys go in first and wait for me at the mouth of the cave. I will head inside a bit later.”
Han Hua brought Yun Ling, Yun Yi, and Zhao Chen into the cave.
Luo Tian observed his surroundings before using shocking speeds to arrange an array.
He had to be careful with everything!
“This ghostly beast has really powerful defensive properties.”
“Fire attributed attacks aren’t dealing that much damage.” Luo Tian was turning gloomy inside. In front of him was a huge main hall with ghostly beasts everywhere. Their eyes were replaced with burning flames that seem to have come from the depths of hell.
“Senior sister, Yun Ling, Yun Yi; you girls take a break.”
“Zhao Chen; maintain the defensive array and follow me.”
Luo Tian had no thoughts of stopping.
The main hall had huge amounts of ghostly beasts, making this place a holy ground for leveling up!
Seeing so many ghostly beasts, Luo Tian’s heart started becoming elated. He then said to himself: “If all three levels have this many ghostly beats, then there’s hope for me to level up to the Profound Venerate realm. Heh heh…”
Just when Luo Tian was enjoying his slaughtering fest…
An ear-deafening sound came from deep inside the main hall.
Han Hua, Yun Ling, and Yun Yi’s expression drastically changed as they shouted: “Junior brother; the Ghostly King has appeared!”
