Chapter 83: Taming the Hook Lion
Translator: Exodus Tales Editor: Exodus Tales
Gong Xinran was startled, following which she broke out in a smile, “In this instant, I actually had some hope that Junior Brother had a way to save me. Golden needles into my acupoints to extend my life, killing six people in a row, suffering close to no injuries. Xinran nearly thought that Junior Brother was omnipotent.
“But this is great! I remember three years ago Junior Brother told me that one day you would definitely exceed your father and become an absolute world expert. To let everyone who looked down on you see you in a different light, I thought that Junior Brother had given up on that hope and didn’t expect that you had already achieved it. Your other Junior and Senior Brothers, none of them can catch up to you…”
Zong Shou was slightly startled, searching back in his memories. He silently shook his head, that Zong Shou truly had times when he was so childish.
His face couldn’t help, but blush shyly. Even if the one who spoke wasn’t truly him, in the eyes of others it was.
Gong Xinran seemed to be really exhausted, panting slightly before speaking once more. However her expression was really heartbreaking, “In terms of last wishes, can Junior Brother take back that collection of martial secrets for me? Senior sister doesn’t hate Gao Yi; he is right, the reason why I am dying is because of my silly dreams. I have no eyes to believe him. That collection of martial secrets affects my Gong Family legacy, and is really important for my younger brother, it can’t be lost at my hands.” As she said that, her eyes moved slightly, revealing a pleading look. “I know that my request is a little too much and I also know that Junior Brother might not be able to achieve it now. I only hope that in the future when Junior Brother thinks about me, you can help me obtain it…”
Zong Shou listened silently, when suddenly his heart picked up something. He coldly looked towards the right at the grass and trees at that side which were shaking.
He saw Chuxue panting heavily as she walked up. Looking over the situation, as well as Gong Xinran who was taking her last breaths, she was momentarily dumbfounded. Her petite face turned serious and quietly stood to the side.
Although she didn’t know what had happened just now, she didn’t dare disturb them.
A total of ten breaths, seeing that Zong Shou didn’t give a reply, bitterness slowly appeared on Gong Xiran’s face. In the next moment, Zong Shou suddenly opened his mouth, “Just getting the collection of martial secrets back? Aren’t you willing to watch that Gao Yi die in front of you?”
Gong Xinran was originally filled with despair, and when she heard that, her heart shook once more. She looked over in disbelief and in a short while her brow furrowed, “I am not afraid that Junior Brother can’t kill him, but Gao Yi has already gone down the mountain. I heard his tone, and there are many people receiving them down there. There might even be Xiantian Realm experts. Although Junior Brother is strong, there’s no need for you to go head on with him now…”
Zong Shou didn’t care, walking towards a nearby corpse. He picked up a large iron bow in his hands.
Casually pulling it open, the bowstring was extremely tight and really tough, adding up to 1,500 kilograms draw before he managed to pull it open. With his current strength, he was unable to fully open it up.
Zong Shou stood behind the bow with satisfaction, picking up the quiver. There were a total of twenty arrows within, which this person had never used. They were all made up of cloud whale bones and were really light. Golden tiger teeth were used for the heads, and blood patterns were carved on them. Their tips shone with a cold light, and looked extremely sharp.
He felt them arrow by arrow, and after getting a rough understanding of each of them, he hung the quiver on his back. Just as he was about to walk down the mountain, he said, “Xue’er carry her along, be careful and don’t touch those needles!”
Chuxue wanted to ask some questions, and say that her Young Master looked like a stiff wind would cause him to collapse. He had run for so long and should have already used up most of his strength, so why was he still holding on?
In the end, she didn’t dare to take it lightly. She walked over and carefully picked up Gong Xinran. Only when she got close did she realize how badly Gong Xinran was hurt, losing nearly all her blood. For her to still be alive now was a miracle.
As Zong Shou took a few steps down, he felt a loss of breath and that his stamina was unable to keep up. He tried to use the Wind Travelling Spiritual Bone on his legs, and only then did he realize it was ruined during his run previously.
His brows subconsciously tightened, when he saw that there was a blood red glow in front of him.
At first glance, it looked like two red cages. On deeper observation, he realized that there was a twenty-meter high giant lion staring ferociously over. Its body was well built and strong, muscles tightly contracting, its eyes was filled with a deep bloodthirsty intent.
From afar he could feel a fishy smell piercing his nose.
“It’s a Grade Three Hook Tail Lion!”
Chuxue stood rooted to the spot, her hands nearly losing her grip. She instantly sniffed her body, and as expected the fragrance of the medicine was already gone. As for Gong Xinran, she didn’t have such a thing on her.
Her nose couldn’t help but be filled with a bitter smell. Although the Hook Tail Lion in front of them was Grade Three, its aura wasn’t stable. Instead, its aura suddenly surged upwards and gathered up large amounts of spiritual energy around it. In the next moment its aura was consolidated and difficult to pick up.
The situation was really similar to Yin Yang during the past few days, like it was at its peak of its Grade and was about to break through.
Was her Dark Chill Tiger able to defend against it?
Zong Shou broke out laughing, and his eyes turned blood red too.
All the hatred, anger, and killing intent that he was suppressing when he spoke to Gong Xinran had now burst out all at once. His mind was unstable and held a maniacal intent within it.
Before this, he was still worrying about how he was going to get down the mountain. In a blink of an eye, his solution to walking had found its way over itself.
It seemed like that Hook Tail Lion had sensed some danger as it retreated. Instead of charging forwards, it gave a low roar as a show of might as it took a step backwards.
In the next moment, it saw a purple flash in front of it. Zong Shou’s body turned into a ball of unclear light as he appeared in front of the lion. Before it could even react, he delivered a huge fist to the side of the lion’s head.
A loud rumbling sound broke out as 1,500 kilograms of strength smashed towards the weakest spot behind the year. The Hook Tail Lion to immediately stumbled towards the side, its brain dizzy and out of sorts.
Another uppercut followed up from below without any mercy, making its nose bleed. The successive blows caused it to nearly lose all its consciousness.
He crazily smashed out the head of the giant lion, and only when the intent within his chest had slightly calmed down did he stick a sword into its head, stabbing diagonally down. It pierced through the lion’s skull before stopping close to its brain.
Zong Shou leapt up and immediately leapt on the back of the Hook Tail Lion, shaking his hands. In his heart he was thinking about how tough the bones of this lion were, even comparable to Mythic Masters of the same Grade. Even after absorbing the essence of the Lightning Phoenix egg, his improved bones were still far from it.
Just a few dozen fists, and his bones nearly fractured.
Seeing Chuxue still standing stunned over there, Zong Shou couldn’t help but frown, “What are you doing? Are you still not coming?”
Chuxue could only feel her throat go dry as Gong Xinran and her looked towards the beast and man ahead of them in astonishment.
Was Zong Shou planning on riding this Hook Tail Lion down the mountain?
