Immortal Devil Transformation Book 7
Thud! Thud! Thud! Thud!
Arrows continuously smashed into the carriages wooden slabs, releasing war drum-like muffled striking noises. The horses who were hit by arrows fell onto the ground, rolling all over the ground in pain, shaking the two fleets until they groaned with noise.
The sounds of arrows flying through the air, entering wooden slabs and flesh, the neighing of horses, all these sounds mixed together, directly turning the areas where those carriages were into a scene from hell.
Lin Xi stared at this hellish scene, his brows furrowing slightly as he quietly said, "Youve never deceived them before, this is indeed a very good explanation however, why did you fool them this time?"
Chen Feirong said in an extremely innocent and as it should be manner, "Of course its because I wish to follow you. Also, by letting them give it a try, itll obviously make things safer for us."
When she heard the word us, Bian Linghan immediately furrowed her brows in an even more displeased manner.
"Something doesnt seem to be quite right." Right at this time, Jiang Xiaoyi suddenly spoke with a deep but quiet voice.
Lin Xis eyes never left that region either. He also long sensed that something wasnt quite right.
It was because those two rows of carriages were too calm. When they faced the sudden rain of arrows, this fleet of carriages that left North Grain Cave Town only used the fastest speed to open the carriage doors, and then rushed inside the almost completely shut carriages as if they were sure none of these arrows could penetrate the carriages walls. Meanwhile, most of the men of the fleet arriving from the other side directly hid beneath the carriages.
Right now, there were already no more arrows fired from the forest. The forest swayed like a great wave, figures with red scarfs wrapped around their heads rushed out from the forest while screaming.
Even if all of the personnel of the two fleets were totaled up, it wouldnt exceed forty, while these bandits with red cloth wrapped around their heads exceeded a hundred. However, most of the men in these two carriages still didnt show any signs of counterattacking, nor did they show any fear.
"Not having anything wrong is what would be strange." Chen Feirong also calmed down, her eyes that seemed especially large and clear flickered as she looked in that direction, quietly saying, "Those who dare do business in this type of place obviously arent simple they didnt even send out anyone in advance to scout the forests around them, this can only mean that the people in these two fleets have absolute confidence in their own strength. Even if a great massacre is carried out here, it wouldnt startle the Border Armys wandering cavalry."
"It is only those blinded by greed, people who are directly involved, who cant tell that something isnt right for your opponents to even be of this level, it makes me want to follow you even more." These two lines were spoken in an extremely low voice, as if she was muttering to herself.
Lin Xi heard these two lines Chen Feirong spoke, but he didnt immediately reply to her. However, his brows instead jumped fiercely.
In his line of sight, those red scarfed figures who rushed out from the forest were already less than two hundred steps from the carriage fleet.
Right at this moment, a single figure walked out from the two fleets.
The skys color already became much darker, the two carriages not having any lights lit. Originally, Lin Xi and the others, under this type of distance, couldnt recognize any faces, yet at this time, he could see that person clearly.
It was because this persons entire body released bright yellow light.
This was a middle-aged man whose beard was trimmed extremely neatly on both sides, but it was precisely because it was trimmed so carefully, together with the hopeful sinister smile that appeared on his face, that it made his entire figure seem to release a wave of treacherous aura.
Lin Xi, Jiang Xiaoyi and Bian Linghans breathing suddenly stopped, as if a cold bucket of water immediately poured down their heads, the chilliness seeping into their bones. The three of them subconsciously didnt dare move.
That man whose beard was trimmed extremely meticulously, following a few rise and falls, rushed up to those red scarfed figures with unimaginable speed.
They couldnt even see just what kind of movements he made clearly. The two red scarfed figures he directly faced couldnt even release a shout before their bodies directly exploded from the back, turning into countless pieces of fragmented flesh.
Immediately, all of the red scarfed figures excited shouts completely disappeared, this place becoming deathly still.
Unknowingly when, a black spear appeared in this excessively meticulously shaved mans hands. At this moment, he tossed it out in a nonchalant manner.
The spear released an exceptionally shrill noise in the air, continuously penetrating the bodies of five red scarfed figures in a row, producing a long wave of blood across the sky. Only then did it bring the last corpse with it, nailing itself into the ground.
Lin Xis palm was covered in a fine layer of cold sweat.
Just what level of cultivation did this cultivator have?!
Instantly killing several ordinary warriors wasnt difficult for cultivators, but to directly crush them into pieces, make them explode from the back, this level of power was still completely unimaginable for Lin Xi.
Chen Feirong spoke with an extremely quiet voice, a bit nervous, but extremely certain. "Just what kind of transaction is this! This little beardie actually has State Master level cultivation!"
Chi! Chi! Chi! Chi!...
In the distant skies, strange air tearing sounds continuously sounded again.
Right now, all of those red scarfed figures initial complacency and excitement turned into horror and fear. That meticulously shaved man moved through them with extreme speed, every single person that was near him was smashed into a blast of bloody paste by a single move.
The giant iron shields and poisoned chained sickles that were normally used to deal with cultivators didnt serve any use. All of these red scarfed warriors began to run in all directions like stray dogs.
Six individuals walked out from within the carriages side by side, every one of them holding an extremely heavy and massive shadow in their hands. The continuous chi chi chi noises in the air were released precisely by the half human-sized shadow in their hands.
The frantically running figures produced bursts of blood one after another, and then fell heavily onto the ground.
Bian Linghan said these two words with a somewhat strange voice.
Lin Xi and Jiang Xiaoyi couldnt help but exchange a look, both of them seeing the chilliness in the other partys heart.
The two could also see that what rested in the six individuals hands were rapid fire crossbow machines.
However, Yunqin didnt have this type of falcon head shaped giant continuous fire crossbow machines.
Yunqins continuous fire crossbow machines greatest effective range wasnt less than fifty steps, yet the continuous fire crossbow machines in these six individuals hands clearly reached close to a hundred steps, already practically identical to a normal longbows firing range.
Moreover, judging from this crossbow machines torrential rain-like continuous firing rate, even if it was an ordinary soldier, when using this type of crossbow machine, they could deliver great threat to ordinary cultivators.
In just a moment of time, a scene of pure massacre already came to an end.
Not a single one of those warriors who rushed out from the forest were able to flee.
A red scarfed bandit who ran the fastest suddenly stood still, his entire body shaking.
It was because he discovered that unknowingly when, the meticulously shaved man had already appeared in front of him, looking at him with sinister eyes filled with mockery. Meanwhile, all around him were smashed flesh and corpses. Not even a single one of those who rushed out with him was still standing.
Lin Xi slowly closed the wooden chest.
These giant continuous fire crossbow machines that had never appeared on a formal battlefield were still not much for them, but the existence of a State Master level cultivator made it so that at the very least, right now, they couldnt make any movements at all.
This worlds soul force cultivation almost completely lacked all techniques. This was especially the case for State Knight level and higher, no spiritual medicines being useful. If one wanted to increase their cultivation after that, they could only rely on meditation cultivation, relying on the slow accumulation of time.
Meanwhile, the greater the cultivation, the slower the growth of cultivation itself.
This reasoning was extremely simple. The bodies of cultivators were like bowls, if this bowl was only the size of a rice bowl, then when water is added from cultivation each day, one could see visible growth. However, when the bowl became the size of a pond, who knew how many drops had to be added before just a bit of movement could be seen.
With Lin Xi and the others strength, they still might have a chance of winning against a Soul Master, but against a State Knight, there was already definitely no chances of success.
As for State Master if they faced the enemy from the front, with Lin Xis current strength, he was no different from those ordinary warriors, his entire body might be smashed to pieces from the moment they face each other.
State Knights should be extremely glorious figures in this world. Meanwhile, State Masters were dragons among men, they shouldnt appear here at all.
Chen Feirongs original excitement completely vanished as well. Her powerful curiosity towards what was inside the two carriage fleets, compared to the shock of a State Master level cultivator, really seemed a bit too frail.
The people in the two groups of carriages already began to sweep through this scene of tragedy.
The horses that dragged the carriages were almost completely killed under the initial rain of arrows, but the people in the carriage didnt seem anxious at all, only dragging the horses to the side of the road.
"You have seen these peoples strength as well, so you should understand that following us wont bring you any benefits." After remaining silent for a bit, Lin Xi turned around to look at the low lying Chen Feirong, quietly saying, "You can leave now."
Chen Feirong stared at Lin Xis bright eyes, shaking her head and saying with an extremely serious tone, "What I said to you before was real. I want to serve as your advisor, become your attendant."
"Why?" Lin Xi looked at Chen Feirong. "All things need a good reason."
Chen Feirong looked at Lin Xi and said, "Because of your two medals, because you already have those medals at such a young age. This is already enough value for me to follow you."
Lin Xi shook his head. "You made a mistake I am not a great figure like you imagine."
Chen Feirong shook her head, "You will become that type of great figure Moreover, for people like us, if you already became that type of great figure, why would you even pay any attention to us?"
Lin Xis brows furrowed a bit tighter. He looked towards where the two fleets of carriages were, thought for a bit, and then turned around to look at Chen Feirong, asking, "What is your cultivation level?"
Chen Feirong replied quietly without much hesitation. "Initial stage Soul Master level."
"If I still wanted to try and attack one fleet of carriages, would you still dare to follow me without any regard for your own life?" Lin Xi pointed at the place where the carriages were, and then at Chen Feirong, asking this.
