Chapter 2107 – Shadow Killer
When Laura and the others saw this, they couldn’t help but be startled. The carriage is protected by a protective shield. This shield could easily block attacks from Soul Fusion Cultivators. But this iron arrow actually shot through the shield and hit the carriage’s shield. This meant that the arrow had a huge power behind it.
As for the iron arrow being unable to break the glass, that was normal. The glass used in the carriage wasn’t ordinary glass. Technically, the glass used wasn’t glass, but instead crystal. The hardness of this crystal couldn’t be quantified. Only special types of attacks could break the crystal.
The attackers outside weren’t expecting the carriage to stop the iron arrow. They couldn’t help but stare, then they slowly walked into the road.
The attacker was wearing black clothing. In his hand was a longbow. The person looked ordinary. If he travelled in a crowd, nobody would notice him.
Conversely, the longbow in his hand was very remarkable. It was an enormous longbow at about a meter and a half long. Its body was dark but with a metallic luster.
The attacker looked at the carriage and said, “Come out and I will spare you from death.”
As soon as his voice fell, he heard another voice, “You might spare us, but we haven’t decided to spare you yet.” After this voice, a figure with an arrow in his hand stood up. This person was Zhao Hai who fell to the ground before.
The longbow-wielding cultivator saw Zhao Hai and his eyes couldn’t help but shrink. His voice didn’t hide his surprise, “You’re not dead? Impossible! It’s not possible to evade my arrow.”
Zhao Hai sneered, “Of course I’m not dead. Your arrow might kill others instantly, but it’s useless against me. If I’m not mistaken, you should be a divergent ability user. Is it a metal-element ability? You can even hide your killing intent. Even if someone locked into your qi, they still won’t be able to track you. People like you are very suited for assassination.”
The longbow user coldly snorted and said, “You know a lot. But you will die by my hand eventually.”
Zhao Hai smiled faintly and said, “I heard that the Divine Armament Sect has a formidable assassin. Plenty of people died in his hands yet nobody knows him. His arrows cannot be evaded. People call you the Shadow Killer. Are you that person?”
The longbow-wielder sneered, “You guessed correctly. What else do you want to ask? Don’t even think of escaping. Everyone who sees my face will die.”
Zhao Hai smiled faintly and said, “There’s no need for me to escape. Am I a person who dies easily? There’s no need for chit-chat. Let’s fight!”
The ‘Shadow Killer’ held his bow and said, “You’re making a mistake. I am a metal-element divergent ability user. The bow in my hand is specially made. I used 81 materials and one year to make it. Except those who have metal divergent abilities, nobody can pick it up. Not even Teleportation Stage experts can use it. You should be happy to die under my longbow.”
Zhao Hai smiled and said, “Really? Then that’s good. I also happen to lack a bow to use. Yours would be the perfect one.” After he said that, Zhao Hai pulled his blade out.
The longbow-user also raised his longbow. Without anybody noticing, an iron arrow was already on the bow. Without warning, a beam of light shot towards Zhao Hai.
Zhao Hai quickly moved his blade and knocked the arrow off. When the Silent Killer saw that Zhao Hai managed to defend against his arrow, his pupils shrank. Then his hands moved and sent arrow upon arrow towards Zhao Hai. The arrows were faster than the last, like a meteor shower.
Zhao Hai also discovered the characteristics of his enemy’s archery. His archery has no other property other than speed. The arrows were fast and kept getting faster.
Zhao Hai grunted, and eight gates slowly appeared around his body. As the gates rotated around Zhao Hai, bursts of sound were heard. All the arrows were blocked by the gates.
The Shadow Killer stopped firing as he stared at Zhao Hai’s eight gates. He didn’t expect that the archery he was so proud of would be blocked by Zhao Hai’s blade technique. At the same time, he felt defeated. He didn’t expect Zhao Hai’s blade to be refined to the highest realm. It was just fair for his arrows to be blocked by Zhao Hai’s technique.
Zhao Hai also stopped at this time, he looked at his opponent and said, “Your arrows are extraordinary. You took your archery to the limit. I admire your efforts. However, you still lost.”
The longbow-wielder looked at Zhao Hai, “Yes, I lost. Once an assassin fails, there is only one fate waiting for him. Death.” After he said that, the longbow user didn’t wait for Zhao Hai to react. He took out a dagger and without hesitation slit his own throat.
Looking at his opponent’s action, Zhao Hai muttered, “What a fierce opponent. But this is also good. This saves me from dealing with him. Now, I have one more assassin that I can use.” To be honest, there were quite a few assassins under Zhao Hai’s command. All of them were Undead. However, the strength of these Undead wasn’t very high. They couldn’t be used in the True Spirit Realm. The longbow user happened to be what Zhao Hai needed.
Zhao Hai waved his hand and sent the longbow user’s body to the Space to be turned into Undead.
The Undead drivers of the carriage already moved the parked carriage in front of them. Before long, Zhao Hai and the others were on the road once more. Zhao Hai also returned to the living room. Laura looked at Zhao Hai and said, “Brother Hai, was that Silent Killer fellow really sent by the Divine Armament Sect?”
Zhao Hai nodded, “Yes, that was the Divine Armament Sect’s Shadow Killer. He’s a famous assassin of the sect. I heard that several Teleportation Stage Experts have died under his arrows. Although he’s still at the Earth Monarch Stage, he only needs a small nudge to break through.”
Laura frowned and said, “It looks like the Divine Armament Sect is really looking for ways to get rid of you. And the more people we kill, the more hatred they would have towards us. The Divine Armament Sect will keep sending stronger and stronger experts.”
Zhao Hai nodded, “We’re bound to get into more trouble in the future. Fortunately for us, I also want to see what the Divine Armament Sect sends to me next.”
The carriage continued to move forward. This time, they didn’t meet any attacks along the way. When the skies became dark, Zhao Hai and the others camped outside once more. While the group was having dinner, Soulhook returned and entered the carriage to see Zhao Hai.
Zhao Hai wasn’t surprised to see Soulhook. This was because he called Soulhook over. He looked at Soulhook and said, “How did it go? Did you deal with the Ouyang Clan?”
Soulhook nodded, “They’ve been dealt with. I have killed around 30 members of the Ouyang Clan. All of them are cultivators of the clan.” Naturally, there were far more than 30 people in the Ouyang Clan. Zhao Hai didn’t plan on erasing the clan from the map. It was enough for Soulhook to be seen attacking the clan.
Zhao Hai nodded and sent Soulhook to the Space. Then he took his communication token out and called the Yin Yang Elders. When the two elders answered, Zhao Hai cupped his fist and said, “I have seen Masters.”
The Yin Elder waved his hand and said, “Did you take care of the Ouyang Clan? How did you do it?” The Yin Elder was confident in Zhao Hai. He knows Zhao Hai’s strength. He just wants to know how Zhao Hai handled the Ouyang Clan’s situation. If the scene was too big, then they might need to find ways to tie up loose ends.
Zhao Hai replied, “I made Soulhook attack the Ouyang Clan. Soulhook killed about 30 individuals from the clan. The Ouyang Clan should be convinced that they had been attacked by the Ghost Cultivators. Master, the Ouyang Clan is no longer safe. The sect should send people to get the rest of their members and keep them safe.”
As soon as he heard Zhao Hai, the Yin Elder’s eyes shone. He immediately understood what Zhao Hai meant. Zhao Hai wanted to use this method to capture the people of the Ouyang Clan. In a way, this gave the Tyrant Blade Sect a reason to deal with the clan.
The Yin Elder nodded, “Alright, leave this matter to us. Where are you now? Did you encounter any trouble?”
Zhao Hai replied, “Along the way, we were attacked by the Divine Armament Sect’s Shadow Killer. But since he couldn’t kill me, he killed himself.”
The Yin Elder’s voice turned cold, “Shadow Killer? The Divine Armament Sect actually sent him. It seems like the Divine Armament Sect really believes that the Tyrant Blade Sect wouldn’t do anything to them.”
The Yang Elder added, “I guess it’s time to take action. The Tyrant Blade Sect has been quiet for some time. The world has forgotten our domineering ways. Little Hai, you should take care of yourself. Since the Divine Armament Sect knows of your location, it’s probable that the other sects are also aware. Be extra careful. Understand?”
Zhao Hai nodded, “Yes Master. You can rest assured, I know what to do. As for Soulhook’s death, now that the Ouyang Clan has been dealt with, the Ghost Cultivators might become more vigilant. Luring them out might no longer be as easy.”
