To Walk The Mist Chapter 72
"Only an arm broke? your physical body is not the same at those in the great spill." Ed commented, "Fine. More powered then. Stand still; this next punch of mine will kill you."
The Jade Phoenix alliance elder almost vomited blood at his words. She should stand still? This boy was too infuriating.
"Little Fu, hand over the turtle shell!" she ordered her disciple. The little girl saw her master's sorry form and did not hesitate. She threw her a spatial ring, which the elder wore immediately. Ed blinked before her, just when she manifested a gold shield in front of her. Ed's fist descended upon the shield and his bones cracked and muscles tore.
He immediately retreated at this.
"A divine treasure. I see I was not the only one to get something from the astral roots." Ed said. They all narrowed their eyes at his arm.
"He is wounded! Good. Elder Ban, let us cooperate together." an elder suggested. He was the only one amongst them that was at the soul awakening stage.
"How?" she asked.
"Shield me. When he is close enough, I will attack with a divine weapon." he said.
"Good. He will be coming at me again. Just time to when he strikes again." she said.
"He is healing fast." she said and he turned his attention to Ed's arm that was healing so fast, many trembled.
"Impossible." he said.
"Every thing about this boy defies reason. If we had our energy, I'm not even sure we would win." she said.
"Get ready, he is coming." he instructed.
"Are you done planing your next move?" Ed asked the two who had been talking softly to each other. They would have used the mental communication to talk, but the devil's cage cuts off all these.
"Can you hold?" the elder asked Elder Ban.
"No." she said. One of her arm was broken, and the other was numb from Ed hitting the shield. She used her remaining good arm to hook unto the shield. Several elders appeared behind her, including the falcon sect elder.
"All I need is one opening. I will kill him." the elder said and the others nodded and supported Elder ban.
It was a pitiable state. They had to go this far, just to handle a simple junior. Their actions made the younger generation understand that this was dangerous. This person calmly standing before them was dangerous.
"We will help!" many took out their shields and blocked the Jade Phoenix alliance elder. They somewhat understood, they were only acting as human shield. But to them, they had to kill Ed. This was the only way that these elders could escape this situation and warn other powers of the kind of Devil Lord Nse was training.
The number of shields cocooned around the elder made one sigh. All except Ed.
Out side the city, Old Iba looked down at the scene with pity.
"Your disciple has caused them to give up and put all hope on one final strike." he sighed.
"He still may not get to fight to his heart content. They should just come at him together. Who will he gain any experience if they give up so soon?" Tie Nse said.
"That is all you can say?" Old Iba looked at him incredulously.
"What?" Tie Nse asked.
"Great cultivators and elders of great powers are pushed to this pitiful state and you are only worried about how much experience he can gain?" Old Iba could not believe him.
"Tsk it's his fault for being to strong. This boy, he can not even drag out a fight so he can enjoy it more?" Tie Nse looked completely disappointed in his disciple.
"He needs to learn to be less domineering. He should have used less strength so that the fight continues. I thought you did not have to teach such basic things." Tie Nse complained.
"Only you would think of teaching his disciple to be shameless." Old Iba fumed.
"He wasted all my good intentions." Tie Nse said.
"I pity the powers down there. They were unlucky enough to meet you and your unreasonable disciple." Old Iba said, "The entire cultivation world has been shamed by you two master and disciple."
"What shame? They should be honoured! Look down there. All powers working together for one cause; something that has never been seen in millennia. Even while people he is teaching them unity. This, I must learn from him." Tie Nse said.
Ed calmly looked at the group before him.
"Good. Stay perfectly still." he said and blinked backwards a few meters. Letting go of the rope, it disappeared back into the Yhenxia sword. He pulled all of his strength as he clenched his hand.
They brazed themselves.
He pulled back and blinked before the first layer of shields.
