177 – Swallow Qiandu
Chapter 177: Swallow Qiandu!
After Lin Canghai dived into the water, he did not deliberately hide his whereabouts, rather intentionally caused a scene and created loud noises. Even in the pitch-black underwater world, he did some neck-circling exercises and aerobics, twisting his torso and butt——
A flower-like handsome man was making some attractive movements but unfortunately no one could appreciate it at all.
He waited a while but could not provoke the three-eyed ice toad to attack him.
There was not even the slightest of reaction.
“Strange.” Lin Canghai thought to himself. “Given the toad’s ruthless nature, as well as its degree of understanding of the flow of water in the lake, it should have known. But it still hasn’t shown itself, what exactly is it trying to do?”
Lin Canghai deeply admired Li Muyang’s bravery and loyalty, so he wholeheartedly wants to rescue him.
Therefore, he decided to make his move.
Clasping his sword, he gathered qi in his dantian. Then, the tremendous body of qi that passed through his sea of qi, transported to the ordinary iron in his grasp.
His arm transformed into a crimson-red, and his sword turned purple-red.
Following the convergence of qi, a huge white ball emerged at the end of his sword.
The white ball of light grew bigger and bigger, becoming the only source of light in the underwater world that not even the ice water could extinguish or lessen its brightness.
The moment the light ball grew to the size of a bamboo basket, Lin Canghai swung out his sword, thrusting the ball of light out at the same time.
The white ball thundered towards the darker depths of the darkness.
Like a paper coated with ink was hacked in the middle by a sharp knife and a white mark was left behind.
The sphere of light exploded, sending multicoloured sparks shooting in all directions, and the bottom of the pond turned as bright as day.
Water at the lake bottom began to surge up violently, strange rocks flying into all directions.
On the surface of the lake, waves swelled, rising skyward, almost to the height of the giant waterfall.
Chu Xun stood still on the shore, watching intently at the white, giant waves soaring up like a tremendous dragon rising into the air, a cold smile flickering at the corners of his mouth.
“Seeking your own death.”
Lin Canghai swung down his sword, as though the qi and force of the sword were about to split the entire underwater world apart.
This time, let alone the powerful three-eyed ice toad, even a dead three-eyed toad might be awakened by him——
Lin Canghai’s action was indeed effective. Shortly after, he felt a strong flow of water rushing up behind him. A colossal monster about to attack him.
Lin Canghai twisted around, flinging his sword to administer a horizontal strike.
The sword hummed, making a loud, crisp sound.
The flame-like sword qi shot towards the three-eyed ice toad. The toad immediately slapped it away with its hand, sending the red sword qi into the distance. Then an underwater explosion rocked the bottom of the lake.
Lin Canghai’s attack failed. With both his feet floating on the surface, he sailed towards the enormous three-eyed ice toad.
Clasping his sword, he again thrust at the three-eyed ice toad’s stomach.
The triangular eyes on the toad’s forehead constantly flashed, while his body clumsily twisted, like he could not evade on time and could only helplessly watch the sword lunged into its abdomen.
The sword pierced into its flesh. Although Lin Canghai did not hear any sounds underwater, he could feel the sword stabbing into its flesh.
His face was slightly glowing with pride, knowing that his attack was effective.
He charged forward, the sword in his hand also lunged all the way.
He was going to pierce the toad’s belly.
Of course, because of the toad’s enormous size, and the short length of his sword, it was difficult to thrust right through.
Until the sword hilt.
Besides the sparkling and translucent sword hilt gripped firmly in Lin Canghai’s hand, the entire body of the sword had plunged into the toad’s flesh.
Before the grin on Lin Canghai’s face blossomed to a full smile, he was suddenly alerted.
Yes, it was as if his sword did not really stab the toad’s stomach. How would the toad not even emit a trickle of blood?
In this dark underwater world, Lin Canghai could hardly see whether the toad was bleeding or not.
But the smell of blood is distinct. With his level of cultivation, if there was a strange odour in the water, it won’t escape from his five senses and six consciousness, which are several times better than those of ordinary people.
“I’ve fallen into a trap.” Lin Canghai finally reacted.
It was too late for him to free his sword. Instead he loosened his grip on the hilt and tried to escape.
In order to run faster, he violently kicked the toad’s belly——
The toad’s three eyes turned a fearful-red colour, because it’s violent anger that was built up because of it’s failure and accumulated injury were all about to vent onto Lin Canghai.
It’s flat belly suddenly bulked up. Lin Canghai was sent flying.
Toad Qigong is impossible to guard against effectively.
The sword that should have punctured the toad’s abdomen also rebounded, shooting towards Lin Canghai, who had lost control over his body.
With the hilt in front and the blade in the rear, and flying at a speed faster than Lin Canghai across the air, it shot towards his chest.
A little snow-white, jade-like hand stretched over.
With a grasp of her little hand, the hilt of the longsword appeared with a flash in her hand.
Her body glowing with the golden colours of the sun, and like a goddess, Qiandu slowly descended to the ground, and at the same time grabbed the sword hilt with one hand while the other pulled Lin Canghai back.
Her body looked like it was enveloped by a cocoon of light or situated in a transparent glass sphere.
Her face is beautiful and her eyes are charming. Her expression is so lively and her eyebrows are so vivid. Even her clothes are beautiful, clean and neat, gently fluttering.
Yes, her clothes were still dry. Following the gentle swaying of the ball of light above the lake, her black outfit also flowing gracefully behind her.
Her body did not touch the slightest drop of water and her was feet not contaminated by dust.
A jet of crimson blood spurted out of Lin Canghai’s mouth, His grimace became a bitter smile, before he said to Qiandu: “This toad is too cunning, I nearly let it had its way——it knows how to show its weakness then fight back.”
Qiandu nodded, said: “Thousand year king, eighty thousand years turtle are all Spirited creatures. A toad that has lived for thousand years must have its extraordinariness. We must not be careless.”
“I know.” Lin Canghai said.
Lin Canghai retrieved his sword from Qiandu’s hand: “I’ll go in again, let’s see if it can also take my next attack.”
“Be careful.” Qiandu said.
The toad’s third eye constantly darted right and left, looking at Lin Canghai and Qiandu.
Knowing that these tiny human beings dare to invade its own territory once again, it let out a series of angry roar: Croak croak croak——
Then, its long tongue shot out in the direction of Qiandu and Lin Canghai.
Just as Lin Canghai stood with his sword overhead, ready to slice his opponent, Qiandu stretched out her arm, pushing him away.
The toad’s tongue wrapped around Qiandu’s waist and with a sudden movement, reeled Qiandu back into its mouth and swallowed her.
“Gu gu——” The toad felt a sense of satisfaction it never experienced before.
