The endless forest looked like the open mouth of a deadly beast. No one knows what lies at the deepest parts of Sky Cloud Forest. All Zhao Feng knew was that the further one went, the more likely one was to met deadly beasts. Opportunities and danger intertwined with each other.
Zhao Feng cautiously scanned the area with his left eye for signs of unknown beasts. He occasionally met a few strong deadly beasts and flew thirty miles out.
Zhao Feng took out his silver bow and put his Inner Strength into it. The string started to tremble with power.
One silver arrows shot through the forest and hit a two-hundred kg wild pig, two-hundred metres out.
The arrow blasted through the pig’s eye and head, spraying blood everywhere. It struggled for a while before falling down. The two-hundred kg pig would be a tough feat if fought head on by cultivators of the third rank.
Zhao Feng didn’t pick up the pig’s corpse. He was just practising his skills with the bow. His real target was wild beasts. Only by killing wild beasts would he gain the silver he needed for cultivation resources.
“The power of this silver bow is not bad. Every arrow’s strength is on par with the full strength hit of a fourth rank within three hundred steps. My arrows also have poison coated on them. If I hit a vital spot it is the same damage as a fifth ranker.” Zhao Feng was very pleased with himself. Being an archer, Zhao Feng’s killing and surviving rate was very high.
“Clap, clap, clap….. Not bad, not bad. I never thought my target this time would be an archer.”
A clapping sound came from in front.
“Who!” Zhao Feng was shocked.
He saw that on a tree top, two-hundred metres out, stood a slim as bones gary-clothed man. This person was like a ghost that hung on a tree. If one wasn’t careful enough, one would think it was a rag.
Through his left eye, Zhao Feng found that the person’s aura was converged in a weird way, making the aura turn to nothingness.
Through his first inspection the enemy had reached the fifth rank of the martial path and had also learned a skill similar to Hiding Air Technique, as well as another tracking skill.
“Who? Hehe… you’re going to die soon, haven’t you realised?” The gray-clothed man mocked. He did not seem to have any intentions of attacking in a short amount of time. However, his eyes had always been locked on to Zhao Feng.
Zhao Feng’s hand held three poison arrows as he faced off the assassin.
Why didn’t he make a move?
Zhao Feng felt weird. Soon however he got to know why.
“Hahaha…. Kid, come to your death!”
A few hundred metres behind him, two men, clothed in black, were coming. They had both reached the peak of the fourth rank.
Two pronged attack!
Zhao Feng’s expression changed. However, the man that gave him the most dangerous feeling was the one in front of him.
“It is time to end it now.” A curve blade appeared in the gray-clothed man’s hand.
What should I do? Zhao Feng thought urgently.
At this moment, from deep inside the left eye, came a familiar thumping sound. Under this danger, Zhao Feng fully pushed his left eye into max vision and reaction speed.
The two men behind him were now one or two hundred metres away. Their every action slowed down in Zhao Feng’s eyes.
However, the gray-clothed man in front stood still like wood, not moving at all. Zhao Feng’s left eye however was still locked onto this man as he was the most dangerous one of all.
One hundred metres!
The two black-clothed men were laughing hysterically. They seemed to already picture how Zhao Feng would be cut into pieces. However, Zhao Feng was still calm.
Suddenly, Zhao Feng’s left eye felt the blood and Inner Strength stirring within the gray-clothed man’s body…..
At this moment!
Zhao Feng’s eyes flashed dangerously as he put the three poisonous arrows onto the bow.
Sou! Sou! Sou!—–
The three arrows were arranged in a queer position, like a triangle that shot towards the gray-clothed man. Chapter 32 – Life or Death Pursuit
As Zhao Feng pulled his bow, the gray-clothed man’s expression turned into one of mockery.
Sou! Sou! Sou! —
However, when those three arrows came right at him, his expression suddenly changed. These three poison arrows had small gaps between them and were not going in a straight line. However, the way that it was arranged meant that he had no escape routes, he was completely locked on!
The gray-clothed man swiped his hand and a gust of wind snapped the first arrow, but the second arrow came right after.
If he wanted to dodge the second arrow and then attack Zhao Feng using the best route possible, he would have to face the third arrow.
The third arrow seemed to calculate how he would react.
How did he do this…… The gray-clothed man’s pupil shrank as his expression turned to shock. If this was all planned by Zhao Feng, then this would be extremely frightening. He was a youth not even fourteen years of age!
He did not know that Zhao Feng’s left eye had already locked on him. Everything, including his heartbeat and breathing rate, was all under close watch.
Zhao Feng had shot his arrows according to the changes in the opponent’s body. Everything went to plan. The three arrows had stalled the gray-clothed man for a few breaths.
“There is no difference. You will still die today.” The gray-clothed man’s voice was full of coldness.
However, Zhao Feng’s actions after that caused him to be stunned once again. Zhao Feng didn’t run after he shot the three arrows. Instead, he turned around and attacked the two men behind him.
The two black clothed men also attacked Zhao Feng.
Since they were running towards each other in straight lines, the distance between them soon closed in.
“This kid has strong calculation abilities.” The gray-clothed man felt a bit anxious. Zhao Feng’s actions had been the most perfect way to escape.
Firstly, he didn’t run straight away. His chances of escaping under the two groups of people was very low. At the very least, Zhao Feng had confirmed that the gray-clothed man’s speed would not be slower than his own, or else he could not have appeared in front of him like a ghost.
Secondly, it was very hard for Zhao Feng to find a breakthrough point.
After comparing the three people, Zhao Feng thought that the two men clothed in black were weaker. If he could finish off these two quickly, and then concentrate on the gray-clothed man, his chances of winning would be higher.
Just as Zhao Feng and the two men were getting closer.
“How will a trivial half-step martial artist fight against two peak fourth rankers?” The gray-clothed man didn’t feel urgent. He didn’t need the two men in black to kill Zhao Feng. All that he needed was for them to stall Zhao Feng for a while, then Zhao Feng would definitely die.
Angry Dragon Fists!
As Zhao Feng exchanged blows with the two black-clothed men his body perfectly passed through the gap between their attacks.
Suddenly his aura increased dramatically.
“What! This guy is a true martial artist!” The gray-clothed man’s expression finally changed. Zhao Feng’s aura had obviously shown that he had reached the fourth rank of the Martial Path.
Zhao Feng’s fist was like a roaring dragon that carried a faint green glow and smashed into the chest of one of the men clothed in black.
The bones inside of him were instantly shattered and he immediately died.
Zhao Feng’s explosive Inner Strength had reached the peak of the fourth rank and Angry Dragon Fists had also reached its Max level.
With that one fist he killed one of the men in black. This wasn’t just because they looked down upon Zhao Feng, it was also because of Zhao Feng’s strength and his left eye’s calculations.
“Little brother!” The other man in black screamed angrily as his eyes turned red.
Angry Dragon Fists!
Zhao Feng immediately attacked the other man in black. To be merciful to the enemy meant being cruel to himself.
“I’ll slice you ten thousand times for killing my little brother.” The sword in the black clothed martial artist suddenly gave off extremely powerful Inner Strength as he furiously hacked towards Zhao Feng.
The gray-clothed man behind shouted.
He only needed the person to stall Zhao Feng, not necessarily kill him. Unfortunately the black clothed man had lost his mind and attacked crazily. Zhao Feng fully utilised his left eye to find flaws of the opponent. However, his time was limited as the gray-clothed man behind him was catching up.
Zhao Feng couldn’t care about anything else as his body swiftly floated within range of the black clothed man’s sword range.
Zhao Feng finally landed one punch on the opponent’s left shoulder.
Although the man’s arm had been broken, he kept on attacking towards Zhao Feng. Zhao Feng punched him once again and shattered his throat.
The man in black fell to the ground, dead.
Zhao Feng had also paid a price for it. He had suffered some internal damage due to the man landing his last punch onto Zhao Feng’s chest. After all, his Metal Wall Technique had not reached the third level yet, which meant that he could not take straight hits from cultivators of the same rank.
“Little kid…. You’ve been hiding pretty deeply. Your true strength is close to the fifth rank of the Martial Path. However, you will still die today.” At this moment the gray-clothed man had arrived.
There was a dead silence as the two faced one another.
“Who sent you here? Was it Zhao Tianjian?” Zhao Feng stared at the gray-clothed man. He was 80% certain that Zhao Tianjian was the mastermind.
He only had one mortal enemy within Sun Feather City, and that was Zhao Tianjian and his son.
“Hahaha…. It doesn’t matter whether it was or wasn’t since you’re going to die either way.” The gray-clothed man laughed cruelly and moved like a ghost. The curved blade in his hand sliced towards Zhao Feng.
Shua! Shua! Shua!
Zhao Feng felt that the enemy had a high tier footwork skill and super fast attack speed. Only with the help of his left eye was he able to dodge these attacks. If it were someone else that had reached the fourth or fifth rank of the Martial Path, they would probably have already been killed.
The thin curved blade in the gray-clothed man’s hand was very sharp. Even Xin Tong’s Bronze Skin wouldn’t be able to block it.
If Zhao Feng was to take one hit, he would definitely lose his life here. He was also trying to find flaws in the enemy. However, the gray-clothed man was very experienced and had been in many life-death situations, so he had few flaws.
High ranked sword skill, high ranked footwork skill, high rank Inner Strength skill…. All of them have reached the High level. His sword skill has almost reached the Peak level. While Zhao Feng barely managed to dodge he had also estimated the opponent’s strength.
The result made his heart go cold.
The cultivation of the gray-clothed man had reached the peak of the fifth rank and was close to the sixth. With high tier martial arts he was definitely a peak fighter from the fifth ranks of the Martial Path.
As the fight continued Zhao Feng felt his internal injury become worse.
I will definitely die if we keep on fighting in close combat…. Why not…. Zhao Feng’s eyes flashed as he thought of a plan.
He suddenly exited the fight and pushed Lightly Floating Ferry and Air Crossing Breathing Technique to the max.
