Chapter 53: Emptying The Sword Tomb
As night fell, the mystic realm in the valley became even more apparent. The stars dotted the sky, and the crescent moon hung high in the sky. The cold silver light scattered on the ground. It shone the scene under the trees clearly, but hid in the clouds shyly.
Leng Yue slowly opened her eyes. Lin Bai’s attack was too fierce just now, so both of them were exhausted and lost consciousness. Her body was covered in sweat, but she was trapped in a fiery embrace.
The two bodies were entangled together, and it took her a lot of effort to push him away. She glared fiercely at the unconscious man beside her. If looks could hurt people, Lin Bai would have been turned into a sieve by now.
Her gaze accidentally glanced at a certain spot, and she thought of the scene just now. Her snow-white cheeks flushed red again. She did not know whether she was angry or embarrassed, but she could not help but extend her hand, but it slowly fell down.
She lowered her head to take a look. Her lower abdomen was extremely hot, and she could vaguely see the curve of her abdomen. Divine light flashed, and she looked extremely majestic. The White Tiger was already hatching in her body.
“The White Tiger has actually broken the seal!”
Leng Yue was slightly surprised. She then bit her cherry lips lightly, looking extremely unwilling. She formed a spell with her hand and chanted an obscure and difficult-to-understand text, wanting to seal the White Tiger again.
However, it was like a clay ox entering the sea. There was no news at all.
“How is this possible…”
Leng Yue could not believe it. Her hands formed complicated seals. Light suddenly appeared, and a huge array appeared in the sky. The patterns were complicated, and the patterns in the middle actually formed a White Tiger. It looked very lifelike, it actually gave people the feeling that it was about to come to life.
It suddenly pounced toward Leng Yue’s abdomen, but this time, it was repelled by a huge amount of spiritual energy.
The tiger roared in the mountain forest!
The faint roar of a White Tiger came from the sky. Sensing the resistance coming from her abdomen, the divine light in Leng Yue’s hands dissipated, and she could no longer condense it. She could not help but sigh.
“How could a majestic divine beast, the White Tiger, form a contract with such a person?”
Leng Yue was unable to seal the White Tiger again in a short period of time. Its resistance was simply too great, and she was unable to sever the only connection between the White Tiger and Lin Bai. She could only give up and plan for it in the future.
“I’ll let you off this time.”
Leng Yue threw out these words and disappeared into the hazy night. However, she did not notice that Lin Bai was behind her. His cultivation state was continuously rising at an extremely terrifying speed, and an indescribable power spread out in the surroundings.
A powerful air current swept up, causing the branches to shake and the sound to fall in all directions.
For a moment, everything was silent. Even the sounds of insects and birds were concealed, as if they were intimidated by something. Lin Bai’s position was like a sun in the darkness. His body was surrounded by a protective divine light, it was even more so that people didn’t dare to look directly at him.
Countless amounts of spiritual energy were attracted and gathered here. It was so dense that it could almost materialise. It was like smoke and fog, wrapping Lin Bai in layers. He was like a bottomless pit, continuously swallowing the spiritual energy of heaven and earth.
The spiritual energy was like a sea that washed through the meridians and major acupoints in his body. It lasted for a moment before it slowed down. At this moment, Lin Bai’s meridians were dozens of times more powerful than others. It was simply amazing.
If Lin Bai had fought with Leng Yue earlier with such a cultivation level, he would have won even if he did not consume the great fortune pill.
Even the peach trees that were malnourished on the side absorbed the spiritual energy that flowed out of Lin Bai’s body. Their branches and leaves became thicker and countless tender buds appeared one after another.
In an instant, peach blossoms bloomed all over the tree. Even though there was no wind, they began to tremble as if they were expressing their joy and gratitude. As the peach blossoms fell, they fell gently on Lin Bai’s body like a dreamy rain, they were deeply entwined.
Lin Bai’s fingers did not move, as if he had sensed something. This grand scene continued for a long time. When the divine light dissipated, the spiritual energy returned to the world.
[ Ding! ]
[ The host has passed on ten days of cultivation to Leng Yue. ]
[ You have successfully triggered a thousandfold return! ]
[ The host has received a thousandfold return! ]
If Lin Bai was still awake, he would have been extremely excited. This time, he had actually triggered a thousandfold return. Not only did it allow him to reach the peak of the Xiantian state, he was already halfway into the Grandmaster state. All he needed was an opportunity and becoming a grandmaster was just a matter of course.
Not only that, the unborn White Tiger also had a bloodline contract with him.
When Lin Bai woke up again, there was no one beside him. There were only peach blossoms on the ground, and the beauty was already hard to find.
“She actually let me go just like that.”
Lin Bai was a little surprised. Leng Yue hated him to the bone, and after this incident, she actually didn’t attack him. She didn’t know that Leng Yue was a sword slave and that she couldn’t hurt the sword wielder.
He used the body cleansing art and tidied up his clothes. Only then did he feel that something was wrong with his body. With a thought, an invisible stream of air tore through the sky and crashed into the stream not far away. It swept up several streams of water and suddenly hit the rock beside him.
The rock that was half the height of a person shattered into powder and scattered in the air.
Even Lin Bai was shocked by this power. Only then did he circulate the spiritual energy in his body, and he discovered that he had actually reached half-grandmaster!
“How could this be…”
Lin Bai was stunned. He suddenly recalled the incident with Leng Yue earlier. Could it be..,
From a certain perspective, the two of them were duo cultivating. Was it because the system determined that he was imparting power to Leng Yue and triggered a huge critical hit chance.
Lin Bai guessed correctly. However, he didn’t know why Leng Yue let him go, so he stopped thinking about it.
He had a vague feeling that one day, the two of them would meet again.
He had explored more than half of the Mystic Essence Mystic Realm, even went to the sword tomb, and even obtained the magic treasure of the Sword Immortal. It could be said that the biggest magic treasure in the Mystic Essence Mystic Realm had been stolen by Lin Bai.
Therefore, there was no need to stay.
“It’s time to leave.”
As soon as he said that, the figure of the Ruo Shui sword appeared in the air. It cut through the sky and stood in front of Lin Bai. It actually emitted a dazzling light, and the ordinary body of the sword seemed somewhat extraordinary.
He didn’t summon the Ruo Shui sword. He did not know why he did not listen to his orders.
Just as Lin Bai was about to retract the Ruo Shui sword, something seemed to be attracted over. A green stream of light flashed through the air like a shooting star.
It was the Green Edge sword that he saw in the sword tomb earlier.
Before Lin Bai could react, purple clouds rolled over. At the same time, the Big Dipper Seven Stars appeared in the sky and formed a line. The Seven Stars Ziwei Sword descended from the sky.
Immediately after, a huge sword smashed into the ground. With a boom, dust flew up. The pitch-black sword body reflected a sharp light. It was really a black iron heavy sword.
These three swords were not supposed to be in the sword tomb. How did they appear in this place?
At the same time, there were also huge changes in the sword tomb. As the Green Edge Sword, the Ziwei Seven Stars Sword, and the Black Iron Heavy Sword were activated, all the swords flew out one after another.
The sky on Lin Bai’s side became dark. The dark and magnificent swords seemed to have been summoned. They all surged towards him. They were so dense that they could not be counted. They surrounded him.
At this moment, Lin Bai was surrounded by them like stars. There were all kinds of swords around him. Ruoshui slowly rose into the sky and exploded with majestic spiritual power. The swords actually transformed into countless streams of light and entered Lin Bai’s body.
He was so shocked by this scene that he couldn’t close his mouth. He couldn’t help but mutter to himself, “Could it be that all the swords in the sword tomb have been emptied by me?”
It was indeed the case.
The sword tomb was only an empty shell now. With a rumble, it completely collapsed.
