I Have Medicine Chapter 282
Chapter 282 - The Wolf-Tooth Cudgel
It was a little more than three meters long. The surface was completely covered with sharp spikes, and each spike was about a foot long. It looked terrifying. The body of the cudgel was as thick and solid as a water barrel. When spikes were added on, then it took the shape of an extremely fierce weapon. It gleamed with a ghastly, cold light.
One wolf-tooth cudgel wasn’t the end of it.
After the first wolf-tooth cudgel appeared, a second and third cudgel appeared by its side. The bottom ends of the cudgels seemed to link together, extending out in three directions. This framework was like a gigantic maw, and once they started to rotate, it looked like a wheel of thorns. It exuded a type of outrageous and brazen sharpness!
Gongyi Tianheng looked at this kind of ominous and terrible thing, and slightly raised an eyebrow.
It seemed that, although his little pharmacist’s temperament was always mild and soft, Gu Zuo was also a young man full of vim and vigor. Currently, Tianheng had only been carrying him around to kill for a few rounds, and he had developed such a way to confront the enemy.
The might of the psychic power’s Spirit Transforming Chapter originally depended on whether the practitioner of this method had the courage to create and transform things of immense power.
Gu Zuo held his breath as he manufactured three wolf-tooth cudgels. Then, he wiped away his sweat.
In fact, after he had once thought about waiting for his psychic power to strengthen, he wanted to transform even stronger weapons — After all, the best of his previous daggers were only short and small. Although their destructive powers were great, they still weren’t that tough and unyielding.
This time around, once he successfully reached the Core Psyche Realm, his originally insufficient psychic power became abundant. He silently forged the weapon that he admired the most.
It was just that, with the present Gu Zuo’s psychic power, manufacturing three of them was already his limit. In actuality, if it wasn’t for the fact that the psychic power of the Spirit Transforming Chapter could be regained, it would’ve been even less likely for him to use up ninety percent of his psychic power to make such things!
Gu Zu closed his eyes. When he opened them again, they shined: “Big brother, watch me make a move first. If I miss any, big brother can just shoot them dead!”
Tianheng saw how impassioned Gu Zuo was, and didn’t brush off his plan. His eyes carried a trace of pampering: “Okay.” In a warm voice, he said, “This time, I’ll just watch Ah Zuo.”
Gu Zuo focused his thoughts, and the space between his eyebrows flashed with rays of light.
In the blink of an eye, those three wolf-tooth cudgels swiftly whirled around, and wrapped up a huge gale as it swept towards those dozens of armored soldiers!
The wolf-tooth cudgels passed through the wind, and the whirling noises were like claps of thunder. Its countless spikes sliced apart that wind like it wanted to lacerate the entire space. The tyrannical power and vast momentum was frightful to the extreme!
Those armored soldiers reacted very quickly. Even though the detectable movements of psychic power attacks were usually very small, the pressure being brought to bear against the other party was too huge. It instantly made them take defensive stances!
…Yet, these defenses were of no use at all.
The wolf-tooth cudgels were too fierce and violent. Most of all, because they were continuously spinning, the sharpness of those spikes rose rapidly. When the cudgels smashed into those armored soldiers, the spikes tore through them from all directions. Each and every soldier crashed into the spikes. A few had their armors torn apart, where only their skin was flayed open. Many, however, had their flesh shredded to ribbons by the wolf-tooth cudgels. From head to toes, they were directly ground up between the great millstones created by the three wolf-tooth cudgels. Entire bodies were transformed into piles of quivering mincemeat!
Splat! Splat! Splat!
Numerous armored soldiers repeatedly tried to cry out in alarm, but they werent even able to scream. Their broken and shredded limbs and torsos had already fallen to the ground!
It had to be said that the three wolf-tooth cudgels that Gu Zuo sent out were truly just like a meat grinder. Even though the ones they faced were low Immortal Realm armored soldiers, even though the armor that those soldiers wore possessed certain defensive capabilities, they still werent able to withstand a single blow!
Only the commander, whose strength was the highest and whose combat awareness was even higher, had jumped high into the air prior to the arrival of the wolf-tooth cudgels. He had avoided the attack range of the wolf-tooth cudgels. At the same time, his hands grasped a large saber. While in the air, he slashed out lengthy saber strikes, which burst forth with the keening sounds of sharp saber qi!
The saber qi advanced in an instant. The target was precisely Gu Zuo’s location!
At this moment, the majority of Gu Zuo’s psychic power had transformed into the wolf-tooth cudgels. Meanwhile, a smaller part of his psychic power was manipulating the weapons. As such, his self-defense was quite lacking. It was reasonable to say that, if he sustained an attack at this time, he either had to recall the wolf-tooth cudgels to protect himself or, if he couldn’t recall them in time, he had no choice but to lay down and die.
However, Gu Zuo didn’t take action. His big brother was also present!
Tianheng had already made preparations long ago. He had known earlier that, despite the devastating nature of those wolf-tooth cudgels, the present achievements were mostly due to the surprise attack. And this kind of surprise attack, when confronting a person at the level of a commander, was just a bit lacking.
Hence, Tianheng had made preparations in advance. At this moment, the saber qi soon approached. He promptly swatted out with both hands, and two Blood Palms suddenly appeared out of thin air!
Bang! Crackle —
During the first impact, a Blood Palm directly slapped the saber qi to pieces, but the Blood Palm itself also dissipated. As for the second strike, which closely followed behind, the huge hand made a grabbing motion. It clenched the remaining, scattered saber qi together into the hollow of its palm. In the blink of an eye, it produced the sound of an extinguished flame. The vestigial saber qi was completely smothered until not a single trace remained.
Immediately following that, Tianheng leaped up. Without waiting for that commander to respond, his hand already gripped a spear, and he went to fight with that commander.
That commander’s skills were also very formidable. The large saber in one hand was brandished in a free and unconstrained manner. It was extremely imposing. When it collided with the spear, the noise resounded unceasingly. The battle was as unstoppable as a wildfire.
The present Tianheng was very powerful, and his true qi was exceedingly vigorous. However, the qi energy that an Immortal Realm utilized was supported with profound qi. On the other hand, his qi energy was only supported with true qi. The innate qualities of profound qi far surpassed that of true qi. During battle, for equally powerful moves, it was naturally the commander who held the advantage.
But Tianheng also possessed extraordinary traits. His physical body was the Tiandu Body, and his body contained three sets of bone pearls with different powers. It was just that the bone pearls that absorbed blood essence only made his physical body even stronger. As for the bone pearls that absorbed large quantities of blood and countless strands of resentful energy and poisonous qi, it formed a type of blood-red power that allowed him to use that Blood Palm. Then, there was the reddish-gold power, which at least doubled the might of every one of his moves.
Thus, the tip of Tianheng’s spear bore the blood-red power. With the addition of his crafty spear techniques, the resentful poison within the power was quite virulent. This allowed Tianheng, this peak Xiantian martial artist, to escape the restriction brought about by true qi against Immortal Realm martial artists.
After contending for several rounds, victory and defeat still couldn’t be determined.
The cause, if nothing else, was due to the fact that the one whom Tianheng was battling was none other than the Third Commander. And among these commanders, aside from the first two commanders who were the Third Prince’s trusted aides and whose strengths weren’t within the scope of contemplating, the remaining bottom ten commanders were ordered by might.
As such, although the Third Commander was known to have ranked third, he was first place in terms of strength among the commanders. Even if it was the Great Commander or the Second Commander, had it not been for the spirit weapons in their possession, which were bestowed by the Third Prince, they also probably weren’t the Third Commander’s match.
It was also for this reason that, after the Third Commander received his orders, he was filled with self-confidence — One needed to know that he once sparred with the Third Prince, and his strength didn’t fall much behind!
The Third Commander naturally felt that this would allow him to capture these two individuals. Of course, stretching out his hand to grab them wouldn’t take too much time at all. Merely, he didn’t expect that those two would be so slippery during the pursuit through several ancient cities. Not only weren’t they captured, he had lost quite a few soldiers and a couple of commanders. If this continued, he wouldn’t be able to explain himself to the Third Prince. In the future, how could there still be a position for him in the Binglong Army? Later on, those commanders would all be hoping to drag him down. It would be great to replace this position which was closest to the Third Prince!
At this moment, the Third Commander crossed weapons with Tianheng. He originally believed that he should’ve had high odds of success in direct confrontation. In the end, he didn’t anticipate that his own mid Immortal Realm strength could only fight the peak Xiantian Tianheng to a standstill!
This guy was certainly a genuine prodigy!
The more ferociously he attacked, the more amazed the Third Commander became in his heart.
He once thought that the Third Prince was a rare personage among prodigies, but right now, he couldn’t help having some thoughts… When their Third Prince was also in this realm, had he been stronger than this person?
After thinking about it, he couldn’t help becoming somewhat frightened. At the same time, his actions became even more ruthless.
The Third Commander needed to get rid of this person! Otherwise, this guy would certainly bear the pursuit of the past few days in his heart. If he was able to survive, he would definitely become a lingering trouble in the future!
As for capturing them alive… The Third Commander didn’t consider this any longer.
Tianheng also sensed the Third Commander’s state of mind, and how it promptly became extremely resolute after a moment of distraction. The saber qi he wielded also carried a dreadful killing intent.
This was the Third Commander’s intention to kill him at all costs?
The edge of Tianheng’s lips bore a trace of coldness.
He shook his spear, and the spear shaft suddenly oscillated. The spear tip trembled and billowed like wave after wave of the ocean. Each wave of power was stronger than the last, and the combined layers thrashed towards the Third Commander.
The Third Commander’s expression was heavy. The large saber carried a glaring, golden light. It could behead mountains and split the seas. It was unstoppable!
The waves of power borne by that spear hindered him from behind, but this obstruction couldn’t persist for much longer. It would only take a second at most for the Third Commander to force his way through!
Tianheng naturally didn’t rely on this one move to deal with the Third Commander. His palms interlocked, and that spear vanished from sight. The remaining power was pierced by the Third Commander, and the saber light struck straight ahead.
However, what appeared in Tianheng’s hands were two single-edged, short halberds. While the halberds were as imposing and fierce as a saber, they were far more flexible and versatile.
At this moment, a layer of radiance was coated on each of the two halberds’ crescent moon-shaped blades.
The light on the left was reddish-gold, and the light on the right was reddish-black.
One was like the sun with qi that was both vast and bright. The other was incomparably gloomy and cold, and within its flickering brilliance was an indescribable tyranny!
These two types of powers erupted. Once again, Tianheng lashed out with the intent to kill. The halberd techniques utilized in his left and right hands were extremely special. When put to use, both sides did things their own way. One side was broad and magnanimous, and the other side was sly and treacherous. It seemed that these were different martial skills. Yet, at the same time, it was as if this was a single set method for a pair of halberds. Although the halberd intents were contrary to one another, they also complemented each other’s deficiencies. This caused their combined might to increase by several folds in a split second.
Originally, when the Third Commander battled with Tianheng, he felt that they only needed to wear each other down to see whose determination was more ruthless. However, once that guy took out the pair of halberds, he realized that the current, singular Tianheng seemed to use a method that was comprised of two Tianhengs. It appeared to cause the guy’s martial strength to double!
In a split second, the Third Commander, who was originally evenly matched with Tianheng, fell to a disadvantage!
Tianheng started to pressure the Third Commander. Every time he took action, he was able to wound the Third Commander.
The commander’s body was covered in reddish-black and reddish-gold streaks. The former had the power of corrosion. It made his wounds itchy and painful. It was hard to endure. The latter had the power of blazing heat, which prevented those wounds from healing. Instead, as the battle progressed, the wounds continuously widened in size!
He could detect that his own energy was constantly eroding away. If the scales continued to tip, then the one who was going to die here was him!
Gu Zuo leaned against Tianheng’s back, and was quite relaxed.
Never did the Third Commander not view Gu Zuo as a weak point to attack. Unfortunately, Tianheng always prevented him from approaching. Thus, he basically had no way of accomplishing this.
The majority of Gu Zuo’s mental efforts was on the wolf-tooth cudgels.
And at this time, those three wolf-tooth cudgels separated, and went in three separate directions. They chased after three armored soldiers who were running away!
Around those wolf-tooth cudgels, one would only see three badly-mangled corpses, where even the bones were crushed to pieces. The corpses fell to the ground like bags of meat.
T/N: Due to work, I’ve had less time to translate. Until further notice, I’ll be aiming to translate 2k length chapters in three days and 4k length chapters in five days.
Thanks for the corrections, Charysa.
