Chapter 88: Killing With Stones
Translator: EndlessFantasy Translation Editor: EndlessFantasy Translation
“Hurry up and run!”
“It’s coming. Let’s hide underground.”
“Don’t try to grab the food! Your life is more important.”
It was a temple, a very simple and crude temple with only nine rooms. One or two young monks could be seen inside the temple.
These young monks were not the only things there. There were two other people from a race that Yuchi had never seen before. Now that they were being attacked by this monster, they could only run around in panic. They were panicking and terrified. They did not know why they were being targeted.
They recognized the monster in the sky.
The flying feather race!
It was a bird with a human face and an eagle’s body!
It was about 12 meters tall, had a wingspan of 24 meters, and was a fire-attribute creature. However, this winged creature had already reached A-grade!
The temple’s did not have any defenses at all. They did not know how the temple had been discovered. After all, the temple was hidden in the deep mountain forest. There were also lush, tall trees above them. Normally, it would be impossible to find it.
A young monk was already clutching his head and crying on the ground.
He did not know what to do.
Their master, senior brother, and senior sister were not present. Only the children and two other people from the other race were here.
What should they do?
At this moment, the two people from the other race standing in the temple, a man and a woman, looked at each other and nodded.
Then, they rushed into the empty courtyard of the temple.
The man was very decisive. He jumped into the sky.
His body instantly expanded, turning into an eight-meter long, eagle-bodied creature with a human face, and a wingspan of 18 meters!
The woman was the same.
She suddenly jumped into the sky and turned into a human-faced eagle-bodied creature with a body of about six meters long and a wingspan of 15 meters!
Seeing this, the warrior of the flying feather race temporarily stopped its attack on the temple.””You two traitors still have the gall to appear in front of me? You should follow me back quickly. I can still beg for mercy on your behalf in front of the others and allow you to die with intact corpses!”
The man shouted angrily at the warrior, “We will never go back. We would rather die out here than go back!”
The woman completely agreed with the man’s statement:
“You should give up. Since the two of us dared to leave, we are already prepared for the consequences!”
The warrior of the flying feather race sneered.
Then, he suddenly spread his wings, and a fire tornado instantly appeared around him. Although this fire tornado did not even display one-millionth of the power Yuchi had, it was still sufficient to easily defeat these two weaker flying feather race runaways.
The man was hit by the fire tornado!
The feathers on his body were immediately burned to ashes, and the brutal fire tornado directly hurled him over to the shore of the Vast Sea!
A “bang” was heard.
More than a dozen trees on the shore were snapped in half from the impact.
The woman roared when she saw this. A concentrated ball of flame erupted from her mouth, which was full of sharp teeth. The ball of flame was extremely powerful, but her aim was not accurate enough. The A-grade flying feather warrior easily dodged it, and the ball of flame disappeared into the distance after brushing past the mountain peak behind him.
“Hmph! Still trying to put up a desperate resistance!” The A-grade flying feather warrior’s tone of voice was very cold.
He flapped his right wing, and dozens of one-meter-long sharp feathers shot forth. The feathers pierced through the woman’s chest, and blood spurted out. The woman screamed in pain and fell from the sky.
The young monks in the temple’s courtyard were confused. They saw the woman fall from the sky, and then noticed that the sharp feathers were flying toward them.
The feathers that were falling from the sky were like heavy steel bars!
They were very powerful!
They wanted to hide, and wanted to escape, but their bodies would not listen to them at all. They could only stand motionless, awaiting the embrace of death.
A hundred meters in the air, the A-grade flying feather warrior also noticed what was about to happen.
He furrowed his brows and shook his head.
He did not have the intention of harming the other races, but if anyone had witnessed this scene, they would judge that he had mistakenly killed the members of the other races while chasing those traitors. He thought about stopping his attack, but in the end decided not to.
“I can stop these feathers now, but why should I be soft-hearted to these defenseless people? This is a world where only the strong can survive. If I’m soft-hearted to them now, they might hunt down my race in the future. ”
At this moment, a handful of stones flew over from a corner of the temple. Dozens of stones that were so fast that they even created flames from the friction in the air, like meteors.
As the stones destroyed the feathers, they also hit the body of the flying feather race warrior.
“Pfft! Pfft! Pfft! Pfft! Pfft! Pfft! Pfft! Pfft!”
The stones that were 100 times, no, 1,000 times stronger than the feather instantly turned the warrior into a sieve.
The A-grade flying feather warrior was immediately blown to bits.
Its body, which was more than ten meters long, fell from the sky and smashed into the rocks on the cliff with a loud bang.
At the same time, Yuchi’s figure disappeared..
If the A-grade flying feather warrior had only attacked his own kind, then Yuchi would not have made a move at all. After all, this flying feather warrior’s strength was only so-so. Other than taking a look out of curiosity, he had no desire to fight the creature.
However, this flying feather warrior had attacked humans as well?
Especially a group of defenseless little kids? On the surface, it did not look like it was intentional, but in reality, the warrior had not even tried to stop the tragedy from happening.
He had no intention of showing mercy.
He looked around. Since the A-grade warrior had been dealt with, he did not feel like staying here any longer. Without showing himself, Yuchi returned to the small island in the middle of the Vast Sea and continued his fishing and cultivation. The matters here would be handled by whoever was in charge.
This scene stunned the young monks.
They had thought that they were going to be killed by the flying feathers, but then they heard all kinds of whizzing and clanging sounds.
They saw the feathers flying toward them being hit by something. The feathers, which were as hard as iron, were actually shattered by the flaming stones, which then continued upward and turned the flying feather warrior into a sieve.
Hence, they were safe now.
They were actually safe.
What was going on? Did Master and the seniors return?
That was probably it.
It had to be Master and the seniors!
The extreme fear in their heart turned into a great surprise in the blink of an eye. Although the temple was still on fire around them, it was obvious that these young monks had been reborn. They had survived a baptism of fire.
The other two eagle-beaked creatures heaved a sigh of relief. They returned to their human forms and helped each other back to the temple.
The man sighed with emotion, “Phew, I almost died!”
The woman said worriedly, “How are you now? You were hit by that terrifying fire tornado!”
The man shook his head. “I’m fine. It’s not a fatal injury. It’s not a big deal.”
He looked at the temple in front of him and said, “But I have to say, the human race is still quite powerful!”
“I never thought that there would be an expert in such a remote temple!”
“That was an A-grade warrior. However, the expert in the temple was able to kill the warrior with just a few stones. This expert’s strength must have reached the A+ or A++ grade!”
The woman nodded repeatedly. She was also quite emotional. “It’s all thanks to the expert’s help this time. Otherwise, the two of us probably wouldn’t have been able to survive this calamity!”
They then checked on the young monks’ condition. After making sure that the children only suffered some basic superficial wounds, they were a little more relieved.
After applying some medicine for them, the two of them went around looking for traces of the expert. They wanted to find and thank their savior.
However, in the end, the expert was nowhere to be found.
