Chapter 50: Fight to the Death
Translator: Atlas Studios Editor: Atlas Studios
“Dire beast kings. Something must be wrong for three more dire beast kings to appear at once. Can we really hold out?”
Gao Tianci’s face was grim. Forget about his current injuries, even in his peak condition, he would not be a match for dire beast kings.
Between dire beast lords and demons, dire beast kings could be considered the most terrifying dire beasts of all. At the level of professional martial artists, they were practically invincible.
Although Shui Yuansheng and Gao Tianci had slaughtered innumerable dire beasts just now, and no dire beast lord could withstand a single blow from them, no matter how proud they were, they knew that they were outmatched by dire beast kings.
If there was only a single dire beast king, they could still surround and attack it together. Even if they couldn’t defeat it, they could at least keep it busy. But now that there were three dire beast kings, how could they hold out?
At this moment, the battle between the inhuman experts and the demons in the distance had reached its climax. Even if Shui Yuansheng wanted to call for help from those inhuman experts, no inhuman expert could rush over.
Thus, they could only rely on themselves. There was no doubt that they were now in the most dangerous situation.
As if provoked, that gigantic Proboscis Beast from before charged towards them in a frenzy again. Its target was Gao Tianci.
Shui Yuansheng took a deep breath and said, “We absolutely must not let these three dire beast kings charge out. Otherwise, our entire line of defense will collapse. The consequences are unthinkable!”
Shui Yuansheng stared at Yu Shan and Lin Feng. His meaning was clear. He wanted the four of them to work together to fend off the three dire beast kings.
Gao Tianci took a step forward and said in a low voice, “Count me in. I’m not a noble person, but this is the decisive battle. If we escape, the line of defense will be completely lost. If the three dire beast kings charge into the crowd of martial artists, they’d be like tigers charging into a flock of sheep. ‘ma
martial artist, and I can’t go against my creed!”
Yu Shan also took a step forward. With a determined gaze, he said, “I never paid much attention to the merit rankings. All I wanted was to earn enough money to subsidize my family. Even I didn’t expect that I’d come so far in the present. If we can’t stop the three dire beast kings, they will rampage
through the lands, slaughtering all the martial artists and destroying the entire Dragon Mountain Base. Then, our human citadel will likely suffer a devastating blow.
“Therefore, we must fight to the death!”
Yu Shan’s determined expression seemed to have infected Shui Yuansheng and Gao Tianci. They also took a step forward and shouted in low voices, “Fight to the death!”
Lin Feng felt as if he was meeting these martial artists for the first time. In the past, the martial artists he had met in the academy were either selfish or scheming, and only too eager to find various ways to get rid of their competitors.
However, in the Dragon Mountain Base, before the dire beasts, they only had one identity—martial artists!
The martial artists were the most solid bastion for the protection of humanity. When facing off dire beasts, martial artists must not retreat! It was not about interests; it was only about creed.
Lin Feng took a deep breath. He took a step forward as well, gripped his saber tightly, and said in a low voice, “Fight to the death!”
“Good, haha, then let’s deal with this dire beast king first!”
Shui Yuansheng the Crimson Wings laughed aloud. With a flap of his wings, he transformed into a streak of red light and immediately charged towards the giant Proboscis Beast.
With the gigantic axe in hand, Gao Tianci the Tyrant Axe roared heavenward. His body actually expanded again, and he quickly transformed into a small giant over three meters tall. The surface of his body was covered in cracks and even bleeding. However, as if he felt no pain at all, Gao Tianci’s huge
body stomped all of a sudden and charged towards the giant Proboscis Beast resolutely.
Shui Yuansheng, who was in the air, flew to the top of the giant Proboscis Beast’s head. Then, the scarlet light on his body became practically crimson as blood. A sanguine orb was condensing in his hands.
The orb continued to expand, as if a terrifying power was brewing within it. The aura it emitted alone was enough to make one feel a touch of fear.
“Give me 30 seconds!” Shui Yuansheng shouted at Gao Tianci below.
“Axe Chop, first turn!”
Gao Tianci seemed to be using some kind of arcane technique. The aura on his body burst out suddenly.
The giant Proboscis Beast swung its trunk, but Gao Tianci’s gigantic axe could not break through its defense at all. Moreover, the terrifying rebound force injured Gao Tianci’s body again.
However, this did not make Gao Tianci retreat. His entire body was covered in blood, but he still roared, “Axe Blow, second turn!”
This arcane technique was clearly extremely taxing on Gao Tianci’s body. As he used the Second Tum, his aura rose further to an unimaginable level.
Gao Tianci met the giant Proboscis Beast with a second chop. This time, the humongous figure of the Proboscis Beast actually came to a sudden halt. There was even an obvious mark from the axe on its long trunk.
But that was the limit. The intense pain sent the giant Proboscis Beast into a frenzy. It kicked at Gao Tianzhi’s body, sending him flying and crashing hard into the ground. Even the giant axe he was holding fell to the side.
“shui Yuansheng, it’s all up to you now…”
Gao Tianci was grievously injured and could no longer fight. However, he had bought Shui Yuansheng those precious thirty seconds.
At this moment, Shui Yuansheng was surrounded by a scarlet glow. The blood-like glow seemed to be brewing a huge sphere.
suddenly, Shui Yuansheng’s voice rang out, as cold as perennial ice. “Crimson Flame Orb, burst!”
As soon as Shui Yuansheng’s words fell, the huge crimson sphere crashed down and slammed into the giant Proboscis Beast.
Light flashed. The giant Proboscis Beast cried out in pain. Its entire body seemed about to combust. In its pain, it fled around in a frenzy, trampling and hitting countless dire beasts and martial artists to death.
Shui Yuansheng was about to make a further move, but there were two more dire beast kings behind him. One of them was a dire beast that was covered in dense spikes, like a porcupine. It had already approached Shui Yuansheng in silence. Then, its spikes detached from its body and fired towards Shui
Yuansheng like an overwhelming shower of arrows.
Shui Yuansheng reacted very quickly, but no matter how fast his reaction was, there was nothing he could do against the overwhelming spikes. His entire body was instantly punctured by the spikes, and he fell straight onto the ground.
Yu Shan used a bizarre movement technique. Like a phantom, he grabbed Shui Yuansheng from the ground before the hedgehog-like dire beast king could get to him and escaped to the back.
However, Shui Yuansheng and Gao Tianci were both grievously injured. Yu Shan’s face was also a little pale. Even if he grew three heads and six arms, he was still not a match for the three dire beast kings.
Soon, the scarlet flames on the giant Proboscis Beast’s body were extinguished. However, the giant Proboscis Beast’s body was also covered in blood, and its entire body emitted a violent aura. Clearly, that strike just now had also dealt a huge blow to the huge Proboscis Beast.
However, it was just a blow. Killing the giant Proboscis Beast was simply too difficult. Any one of these three dire beast kings was not something an ordinary martial artist could resist.
The exception was if one could break the genetic lock and become inhuman. But how difficult was it to break the genetic lock? Even though Shui Yuansheng and Gao Tianci were both in life-or-death scenarios just now, and were still on the verge of death now, they were still unable to break the genetic
As the three dire beast kings approached slowly, Yu Shan also stood up. He gripped the saber in his hand. Likewise, he would not retreat a single step.
“Take care of the two of them. Leave this to me.”
Suddenly, Lin Feng took a step forward and stood in front of the three dire beast kings..
