Soaring Of Galaxia Chapter 610
The frantic Yan Zhuiyang dashed towards the pillar located on the interior side. After a moment of observation, Qin Wushuang discovered Yan Zhuiyang's intention.
Clearly, Yan Zhuiyang intended to enter the great hall. If this was the dwelling of the Immemorial Phantom Dragon and he let Yan Zhuiyang gain a head start to enter this Coiling Dragon Palace Hall, it would definitely not be a good thing. It would be entirely possible, if Yan Zhuiyang had a head start, that he could acquire the bloodline of the Immemorial Phantom Dragon. He would be baptized by the bloodline of the Immemorial Phantom Dragon which would mutate his bloodline and give him supreme power.
When he looked at Yan Zhuiyang again, he was already approaching the giant pillar of the dragon on the interior side. Although Yan Zhuiyang had initiated the Primordial Spirit to the extreme boundary and was approaching the end of its flight, if he were to break into the Coiling Dragon Palace Hall, he could regain his victory in the situation if the Immemorial Phantom Dragon had truly had passed on an offspring.
Regardless of the consequences, he would not allow such a thing happen. In a flash of thought, Qin Wushuang initiated the Supreme Dao shield. Like a flying boat, he dashed towards the giant pillar.
Seeing Qin Wushuang enter, Yan Zhuiyang became nervous as he urged all of his power to chop at the interior giant pillar with his long blade.
He urgently desired to escape the giant whirlpool and to run into the Coiling Dragon Palace Hall.
In the midst of the disordered currents, Qin Wushuang also knew that certainly the Graceful Spiritual Bow could not hit the target accurately. The powerful whirlpool inside this disordered currents had already surpassed the water pressure of the 1500 metre area. With Qin Wushuang's current strength, it would be difficult for him to ignore this chaotic whirlpool.
Therefore, he did not close in on to it forcefully. Instead, he cruised towards it slowly behind the Supreme Dao shield while Yan Zhuiyang attacked the interior giant dragon pillar with his full force. At the same time, he could also prevent Yan Zhuiyang from turning around to attack him suddenly.
This shield can be used in offense and defense. As long as Qin Wushuang approached Yan Zhuiyang, he could initiate the Supreme Dao shield and attack him.
Of course, Qin Wushuang knew clearly that Yan Zhuiyang was approaching the end of his energy. Although Qin Wushuang had performed a long-range attack, he also used up a lot of energy.
However, after Qin Wushuang had used his energy, he immediately filled his spiritual Qi with the Spiritual Power Pearl. Therefore, he was just as full of energy as before.
Finally, Qin Wushuang knew that none of the six treasures left to him by Lu Xianlou were useless. Initially, he had not given too much thought to this Spiritual Power Pearl, yet it proved to be of great use when used at this critical moment.
Compared to Yan Zhuiyang who had spent force, Qin Wushuang was full of power. In the midst of the disordered currents, Qin Wushuang's movements were much more agile than Yan Zhuiyang.
The most important aspect to his success was that Qin Wushuang had undergone the spiritual baptism. His body conditions were on par to those elite warriors of the Supreme Dao. When squeezed by the chaotic currents, he would not appear as frantic as Yan Zhuiyang.
Upon seeing Qin Wushuang pressing towards him step by step, Yan Zhuiyang became even more anxious. After he chopped a few times, he had already destroyed the giant dragon pillar on the outside. However, since his Primordial Spirit was used up and he had passed his peak state, he was incapable of make the pillar fall down even after a dozen rumbling attacks.
When he looked back, Qin Wushuang had already approached three hundred meters closer. Even within these disordered currents, three hundred meters was already close enough to form an attack.
Mingled with fright and anger, Yan Zhuiyang knew that if he could still not make an open a gap, he would reach his death at this moment. In a moment of anxiety, he accumulated a somewhat adequate power from his hands. The desire to live accompanied with the courage to fight death allowed Yan Zhuiyang to finally make progress on the giant dragon pillar.
Overjoyed, Yan Zhuiyang knew that as soon as the first crack appeared, it would not be long before the giant pillar to fell. Seeing this, he waved his arm with full force and exerted all his strength along with a roar, "Break for me!"
Before Yan Zhuiyang was a wide clearing. As he dashed forward, he had truly made it out from that gap!
He was free! Feeling ecstatic, Yan Zhuiyang no longer bothered with Qin Wushuang who was behind him. He focused on sprinting inside the Coiling Dragon Palace Hall regardless of all things behind or ahead of him.
He ran forward as fast as lightning. One could not even tell that this was a person who suffered from heavy internal injuries and nearly escaped death.
Qin Wushuang was only one step away from catching up to Yan Zhuiyang. In the end, he allowed Yan Zhuiyang to go in front of his eyes. However, as soon as the giant pillar collapsed, the pressure Qin Wushuang was bearing had immediately lightened up. Plus Qin Wushuang had the Supreme Dao shield to make the way for him, so he made it out of the whirlpool without spending too much physical strength. He also approached the entrance of the Coiling Dragon Palace Hall.
All along the jade steps of the Coiling Dragon Palace Hall, there were mouthfuls of blood thrown up by Yan Zhuiyang. The red staind would remain there forever.
Qin Wushuang followed the smell of the blood to track him. After tracking this steps up the jade stairs, he arrived before a dazzling royal palace.
Qin Wushuang raised his head and looked up. The giant head of the coiling dragon was entrenched on top of this main palace. When one stood close to look at it, the building had appeared even more grand and made one shrivel in size.
Compared to the Coiling Dragon Palace Hall, Qin Wushuang's body was as small as an ant. When he looked at the head of the dragon, whose eyes glared at the sky, Qin Wushuang's heart was incredibly shaken up.
The most shocking thing to Qin Wushuang was not the mental intimidation carried by this building, but the palace's protective wards had not allowed his Observant Finger Jade Plate to operate.
When Qin Wushuang saw that the Observant Finger Jade Plate was not operating, he realized that this Coiling Dragon Palace Hall was truly extraordinary.
If the Observant Finger Jade Plate would not work, he could not track the location of Yan Zhuiyang. This was something Qin Wushuang had worried about the most.
Thinking of this, Qin Wushuang did not waste any more time here. He followed to rush inside and passed the great gate of the palace. After entering the main palace, Qin Wushuang could truly understand what a magnificent place there was before him.
When he entered the great gate of the Coiling Dragon Palace Hall, there lay a wide blood-colored abyss. The water of this abyss was dark red as if fresh blood was flowing on top of it.
Two long bridges extended all the way to the other side of the far distant shore.
These bridges were in the shape of a rainbow. It appeared seemingly real and as a fantasy making one almost unable to distinguish if it was genuine or false.
Qin Wushuang was most surprised that on the left bridge, Yan Zhuiyang was standing on the highest place. He yelled at Qin Wushuang, "Qin Wushuang, if you have the guts, come after me!"
Qin Wushuang was stunned for how did this Yan Zhuiyang turn to be so arrogant in the blink of an eye?
When he shot another glance to the two major bridges ahead, there stood two stone tablets. He noticed words on the tablets that read, "Heaven Earth Coiling Dragon Palace Hall, Ying Yang Life and Death Bridge.
Under these ten words, there were clearly indicated rows of tiny words. It said that these two bridges represented life and death. If one was not cautious and walked onto the death bridge, there would be only one conclusion… death.
And for the Life Bridge, only the first person to walk on it would live. Anyone that followed after him would reach a dead end.
Inwardly, Qin Wushuang was apprehensive. Finally, he realized how Yan Zhuiyang was secure in the knowledge that he has backing.
Regardless if Yan Zhuiyang chose the path to life or to death, it would be impossible for Qin Wushuang to chase after him. If Yan Zhuiyang had chosen the death path, Qin Wushuang would also die if he chased after him.
If he had chosen the life path, only the person who had entered it first would live. Anyone who followed after would still be on the road to destruction.
It was not strange how Yan Zhuiyang was acting. Clearly he had thought this through.
Qin Wushuang narrowed his eyes and looked at Yan Zhuiyang's disgraceful appearance. For the time being, he could not decide what to do. With the two bridges laying here, it was already decided that only one of them could live… Or perhaps both would die.
Now, none of them knew which of these two bridges lead to the living path or which one lead to death. Therefore, the two shared equal odds of survival.
With fifty percent odds, it was no wonder that Yan Zhuiyang was so pleased with himself.
"Qin Wushuang, aren't you so pleased with yourself? Were you not so reasonable? If you have the skill, come chase and kill me!" At this moment, Yan Zhuiyang was finally able to vent out his body full of anger.
After being chased by Qin Wushuang for such a long time, his vital energy was greatly wounded. Since he was able to let out a mouthful of resentment, how could he not just sit there to wait for Qin Wushuang to come?
"What? Have nothing to say?" Yan Zhuiyang howled with laughter recklessly. "Haven't you always been lucky? Today, let's compete and see who has the better luck! Odds are fifty-fifty. Let's see if it's you walking on the death path or me!"
Qin Wushuang fixed his gaze onto the two bridges and could not make a decision at this moment. He knew that there would be only two possibilities. Either Yan Zhuiyang chose the right path and would enter the great palace, leaving Qin Wushuang unable to chase after him, or that he chose death and would reap his reward. Qin Wushuang would pass smoothly by choosing the other bridge.
If Yan Zhuiyang was quick-footed to walk on the right path, the only thing Qin Wushuang could do was leave immediately. Or else, he would have allowed Yan Zhuiyang to acquire the bloodline of the Immemorial Phantom Dragon allowing him to manipulate the protective mechanisms of the Coiling Dragon Palace Hall. Qin Wushuang would die a tragic death.
Thinking here, Qin Wushuang sat cross-legged and closed his eyes quietly. He let Yan Zhuiyang carry on with his coarse and wild hollering.
Evidently, Yan Zhuiyang had not released all of his anger as he continued to swear, "Qin Wushuang, you sit there pretending not to be a coward and think that I would not curse at you? You rich kids from the human countries. Don't you just have a few strokes of luck? You really think you are the proud son to the heaven? Good, now the chance to prove yourself has come. Didn't I leave a bridge for you to walk? If you have the skill, go up there and seen which one of us is the true proud son to the heavens!"
Qin Wushuang truly wished to shoot Yan Zhuiyang on the spot; however, due to the wards of the Coiling Dragon Palace Hall he was incapable of performing with the Supreme Dao weapon.
Upon seeing Qin Wushuang enter a meditative state like a clay model, Yan Zhuiyang grew tired after cursing for a while. Qin Wushuang's attitude with turning a deaf ear also made him feel extremely disappointed for he couldn't enjoy his moment to his heart's content. However, he knew that if he kept cursing, his dantian would not be healed completely. For now, he walked away with resent towards the other end of the giant bridge.
"Coiling Dragon Palace Hall, I am coming!" If I have enough luck, please bestow me this fortune," Yan Zhuiyang prayed inwardly.
Each step he took seemed as if he was spinning closer to the underworld. His heart was thumping harder and harder with each step he took. As he saw the end of the bridge was getting closer, Yan Zhuiyang almost felt that victory was within his grasp!
As he stepped onto the other end of the bridge, Yan Zhuiyang could not help but to raise his arms spiritedly and shout. He passed, he had truly passed the bridge successfully!
