Chapter 598 Who Are You?
“Are you trying to stop me?” The fair-skinned man snorted coldly with a gloomy face and then sped up the moves of his hands. His internal Qi gushed out and poured into the ground, causing the sand around the Fairy Desert Cistanche to scatter in all directions.
Unfortunately, he was still too slow.
The sound of wind breaking rang out. “Swoosh!”
Fang Qiu rushed directly to him like a ghost and took advantage of the situation to pound the back of his hand with his right hand.
“Puff!” There was a muffled sound.
As the opponent’s pouring internal Qi was interrupted, the sand that was constantly raised by the shock suddenly fell down and completely buried the lower half of the Fairy Desert Cistanche.
“You’re courting death.” The man flew into a rage.
As long as he was given three more seconds, he could completely uproot the Fairy Desert Cistanche.
The part of the Fairy Desert Cistanche which was exposed on the sand surface was about the size of a palm. It might be two palms long under the yellow sand. Moreover, even though it was parasitic at the root of a haloxylon ammondendron, its own roots weren’t that thick.
With the strength of the eighth-class Martial Superior with two opened meridians, he could easily pull it out with his internal Qi.
But Fang Qiu came too fast.
“You have a strong desire to kill and serious evil thoughts.” Fang Qiu shook his head.
“Go to hell.” The man snorted and moved his hands. At the same time, he clenched his fists and stroke toward Fang Qiu.
Fang Qiu’s face darkened.
He clenched his right fist.
Without any scruples, he directly met the man’s fist and punched out!
“Bang!” In an instant, they collided with each other, causing a loud noise.
However, Fang Qiu didn’t use his power at the level of a guru. He could instantly crush his opponent with the strength and internal Qi after he reopened the meridians.
As expected, Fang Qiu’s huge strength and internal Qi directly sent him flying backward after the collision, but Fang Qiu stood still.
“Fairy Desert Cistanche.” Fang Qiu just ignored him. He turned around and rushed to the side of the Fairy Desert Cistanche. He looked at it carefully, thinking about the best way to pick it.
But right at this moment, a furious roar sounded. “Aargh… stop it!”
Hearing that, Fang Qiu raised his eyebrows and turned his head.
The man gritted his teeth and said angrily with a ferocious face, “That’s mine. You’d better not touch it.”
“Why is it yours?” Fang Qiu asked indifferently.
“I found it first. I’m the one that killed the guardian beast, so it belongs to me,” the man said resentfully.
“Fairy Desert Cistanche was an Earth Treasure. Heaven and Earth Treasures have always been ownerless. Even if you pick it up but don’t swallow it, it won’t be yours, not to mention that you haven’t picked it up yet.” Fang Qiu shook his head.
Under normal circumstances, if it were a kind-hearted person, Fang Qiu would not have taken it away so forcibly. Even if he needed it, he would discuss it with the person and bought it with money.
But the person in front of him was different.
How could a man with such a strong murderous intent be a good person?
The reason why the bad guy was bad was because of his desire. Once the Fairy Desert Cistanche was given to him, the man’s strength would be improved and he would have greater desires. If so, he would only do more bad things.
If this happened in other places, Fang Qiu wouldn’t intervene.
But since it happened in front of him, Fang Qiu couldn’t ignore it.
Moreover, the Fairy Desert Cistanche was indeed very important to him. It was related to the future of traditional Chinese Medicine and to the lives of thousands of people in the future.
Fang Qiu couldn’t let it go.
“I, Liang Sheng, say it’s mine, then it’s mine. How dare you touch it!” The man growled.
“Liang Sheng?” Fang Qiu froze.
He had really heard of this name before.
He had specifically checked the information of the eighth-class to ninth-class Martial Superiors, only to notice Liang Sheng’s information because he was one of the rare evil people among the eight-class Martial Superiors.
As for details, Fang Qiu couldn’t remember clearly.
However, there was one thing that Fang Qiu remembered very clearly.
This person had an evil cultivation method and was obsessed with killing people!
“You’re Liang Sheng,” Fang Qiu said with his eyes narrowed.
“What?” Liang Sheng stared at Fang Qiu coldly with a sneer at the corner of his mouth. It seemed that he thought his reputation frightened Fang Qiu.
“You deserve to be killed.” Fang Qiu lowered his voice, trod the ground with his tiptoes, and rushed to the man without any hesitation.
“Swoosh…” Liang Sheng didn’t hesitate and immediately waved his hands to meet Fang Qiu’s attack.
In the blink of an eye, the two collided with each other at a high speed.
“Pah, Pah…” Violent clashes rang out in an instant.
It was just like the sound of firecrackers in the middle of the New Year’s Eve. It was extremely loud and clear without any intention of stopping.
“What?” As they began to fight, Liang Sheng’s face changed drastically.
He felt an unusually powerful force on Fang Qiu’s fist, which completely suppressed his own power.
This seriously shocked him.
However, when he looked at the Fairy Desert Cistanche, there was a bright light in his eyes again!
“If you want to die, I’ll grant your wish!” He let out a furious roar.
Liang Sheng then started to retreat.
As he stepped back, his fists collided with each other in front of his body.
Then he bit his lips.
Blood stained his lips.
He opened and closed his mouth. Fang Qiu didn’t know what he said.
There was a sudden flash of red light on his forehead.
Taking a closer look, Fang Qiu found that it was a triangular pattern, which looked slightly complicated.
“Eh?” Fang Qiu froze.
The moment this pattern appeared, he could clearly feel that the power of the man had changed, which became much stronger than before.
“Is this the evil cultivation method recorded in the List of Martial Superiors?”
Fang Qiu was impressed.
Although he was powerful, he had just entered Wulin for a year, so he didn’t know much about the evil cultivation methods in Wulin. After all, when he learned from the old master, the latter taught him all kinds of decent martial arts and didn’t let him learn about evil martial arts at all.
“He can actually increase his strength in an instant?” Fang Qiu was curious.
It was the first time he had seen such a strange cultivation method.
Therefore, he really wanted to see how this kind of cultivation method could help him improve his strength in an instant.
At this moment, Liang Sheng shouted, “Go to hell!”
His figure moved like a cannonball as Fang Qiu heard his furious roar. He charged at Fang Qiu with tremendous force.
“Great timing!” Fang Qiu shouted to himself.
He was just thinking about how to touch him to see what was going on inside his body. He didn’t expect that Liang Sheng actually rushed up to him.
Fang Qiu went straight up to him without hesitation.
This time, Fang Qiu didn’t choose to fight head-on. Instead, he stretched out his hand and directly grabbed the fist of Liang Sheng who was rushing toward him.
The next moment, a crack sound was heard.
Fang Qiu’s palm actually hit the man’s fist fiercely. The moment they collided, Fang Qiu directly grabbed the man’s fist.
“Mental power, see through the body!” Fang Qiu thought to himself.
His internal Qi and mental power surged at the same time.
His strong internal Qi directly blocked the internal Qi bursting out of Liang Sheng’s fist. His mental power directly rushed into Liang Sheng’s body unstoppably as Liang Sheng’s internal Qi was unable to stop it.
In the blink of an eye, he withdrew his mental power.
He then let go of his fist.
“Interesting.” Stepping back a little, Fang Qiu stared at Liang Sheng and said, “It’s a pity that you’re still a little weak.”
As soon as he finished speaking, he broke out all his power right away and charged forward again, violently fighting with Liang Sheng, who thought he had the upper hand.
“Bang bang bang…” The loud noise continued to ring out.
“No, it’s impossible!” When the two fists collided, Liang Sheng was on the verge of breaking down because he found that Fang Qiu’s fist actually broke out with a force that was completely stronger than his and suppressed him again.
But he was using the evil method now!
With the improvement of the evil method, his strength increased by at least the power of three opened meridians, reaching the strength of an eighth-class Martial Superior with five opened meridians.
In this case, Fang Qiu could still suppress him.
How strong was Fang Qiu?
At this moment, Liang Sheng was scared!
However, Fang Qiu was full of confidence.
Just now, he had discovered Liang Sheng’s secret.
After looking inside Liang Sheng’s body, Fang Qiu found that the meridians in Liang Sheng’s body were enlarged in a short time, just like inflating balloons.
With the enlarging of the meridians, the internal Qi in his veins would also increase and the speed of flow would also accelerate.
The speed of flow increased as the amount of internal Qi increased.
Also, his strength would increase in a short period of time.
This kind of growth was not a long-term plan after all.
Once the burst period passed, the increased power would disappear and meridians would return to normal. As the meridians were forced to enlarge, they would inevitably be damaged. It might not be a big deal if the person only used it once or twice, but once it was used too many times, the meridians would become extremely fragile and would be likely to burst at any time.
This method was just like a fist technique which could cause seven kinds of damage.
As the person injured his enemy, he would also hurt himself seriously!
“Who, who are you?” Liang Sheng asked in shock and anger.
“John Doe!” Fang Qiu said.
Upon hearing this name, Liang Sheng shivered.
He had heard of John Doe’s achievements for a long time. There were several eighth-class Martial Superiors with two opened meridians who were defeated by John Doe.
In this case, he was no match for John Doe.
If he continued to fight, he might even lose his life!
“John Doe?” Thinking of this, Liang Sheng asked in confusion.
When Fang Qiu was about to speak, his body suddenly moved. And his right fist burst out a huge amount of internal Qi and rushed straight out.
This time, his target was not Fang Qiu but the Fairy Desert Cistanche behind Fang Qiu.
He instantly rushed aside and waved his right fist.
The huge ball of internal Qi flew out of his hand and shot directly at the Fairy Desert Cistanche like a cannonball. It seemed that he was going to destroy it if he couldn’t get it.
But the next moment, Fang Qiu waved his hand.
Four palms formed by sand immediately appeared around the Fairy Desert Cistanche. They pressed down one by one and completely enveloped the Fairy Desert Cistanche from all directions.
“Boom!” A clashing sound rang out.
Under the protection of the energy of the four palms made of sand, Liang Sheng’s attack could not even break the defensive layer.
“Damn it, I’m going to destroy you sooner or later!”
Liang Sheng let out a roar and did not dare to fight with Fang Qiu anymore. He immediately dodged and fled.
Seeing this, Fang Qiu didn’t bother to chase after him.
Instead, he walked to the Fairy Desert Cistanche and carefully observed it and the lush haloxylon ammondendron. With a puzzled look, he muttered, “Fairy Desert Cistanche can absorb all nutrients from the parasitic tree. The Desert Cistanche has already grown into an Earth Treasure. How can this tree still be so luxuriant?”
