Worlds’ Apocalypse Online Chapter 1077
Chapter 1077 The Secret Passage
Gu Qing Shan’s gaze swept through the area.
Everyone remained still without moving forward.
Three faint images of Gu Qing Shan were drifting around his position, exuding an unknown sense of mystery.
This was the ability he was imbued by the Omni Stone: [Power of the void: Shadow Strike].
In reality, none of these images could actually do any damage.
But having witnessed Gu Qing Shan’s attack that wiped out an entire party, who would actually try to test it out?
Gu Qing Shan no longer paid attention to these people and focused on Su Xue Er’s wound.
Her bleeding hadn’t stopped.
Now that no recovery technique can be used, this level of injury was considerably troublesome.
Su Xue Er was still smiling: “Just now, I felt that your gestures and presence seemed a bit familiar so I was already wondering about it; who knew that it was really you”
Seeing her excited look, Gu Qing Shan doubtfully asked: “Your arm is still bleeding, aren’t you hurt?”
Su Xue Er shivered, her eyes slowly tearing up, and whispered to him: “It actually hurts a lot!”
Gu Qing Shan was speechless.
He recalled something and asked: “[Super Dimensional equipment], you were created by Impartial Goddess, so you surely have a healing function, right?”
An electronic voice replied: [I am a Technological lifeform with my own soul and sentience, so my unique functions have been stripped away earlier as well]
For some reason, Gu Qing Shan felt a sense of dejection in the voice.
“Then, what kind of ability did you retain?” Gu Qing Shan asked.
[A useless one, in summary, I cannot save her] the electronic voice stiffly replied.
Having heard that, Gu Qing Shan didn’t try asking further.
He pressed his finger on the acupoints on Su Xue Er’s upper arm, chest, and back, to block her blood flow. Using the short time that she stopped bleeding, he cut off a piece of his own clothes with the Earth sword and used it to carefully bandage Su Xue Er’s arm.
Although he had lost his powers, having fought numerous wars in his two lives, even as an ordinary person, he still kept several methods of first aid in mind.
And his current clothes were the common outfit in the cultivation world——- these clothes weren’t anything special and only contained the most basic cleanliness and dust-isolation functions.
But those functions were exactly what was needed for bandages.
“Endure it a bit, I’ll try and think of a way to heal you later on” Gu Qing Shan told her.
“It’s ok” Su Xue Er leaned her head on his shoulder with a slight smile on her face: “I won’t die for now”
Everyone couldn’t understand what happened at all.
What kind of situation is this?
These two clearly didn’t know each other before.
But the closer this man got to her, the more that girlie listened to him.
Watching the three images that stood cautious behind Gu Qing Shan’s back, several people decided to give up.
More and more people were leaving.
——–rather than trying to steal a Card that seems to be getting harder to obtain, it was better to explore the secret passage.
We might actually find some true treasure inside!
“Tsk, we’re leaving” one of the masked men declared.
Gu Qing Shan’s gaze became sharp.
These people injured Su Xue Er.
However currently, Su Xue Er is clearly unfit for further combat.
If a fight breaks out, I wouldn’t be able to guarantee her safety.
Unless I can kill all of them in a single strike.
I’ll have to fully exert myself——
Gu Qing Shan reached for the Earth sword.
And held it tightly.
All of a sudden, a desperate scream sounded from inside the secret passage.
Everyone was surprised and turned to look at the dark entrance.
“Somebody, save me!”
Various screaming voices resounded all at once.
The people who ran into the secret passage first were also running for their lives.
Quite a few people were riddled with wounds.
Their desperate fleeing caused many of the onlookers who remained at the square to become cautious.
Gu Qing Shan glanced at the secret passage.
Only to see 7-8 severed heads as well as numerous broken limbs being thrown out from inside the passage.
A thick mist of blood surged forward from the darkness.
A strange sound resounded from within.
The ground was rumbling without end.
Gu Qing Shan shielded Su Xue Er as they retreated to a secluded location, taking that chance to sneak a glance at the masked men.
They had all put up their guards and stood in a combat formation, ready to unleash the most powerful attack they had.
It’s impossible to kill them all at once now.
Gu Qing Shan frowned.
The current situation was too complicated, no one had any idea what kind of danger was waiting inside the secret passage.
For the sake of Su Xue Er’s safety, he could only withhold his killing intent for now.
At this point, lines of glowing text appeared on the War God UI:
[Time is up, the Omni Stone has reset]
[Your ability: Shadow Strike has disappeared]
[You’ve obtained a new ability: Void Slash]
[Void Slash: The Laws of the void converged as slashing damage, relatively sharp]
[This ability cannot be unleashed by itself and must be performed through a weapon]
[Trigger incantation: Eternally Void]
Gu Qing Shan skimmed through everything.
“Qing Shan, what do we do now?” Su Xue Er anxiously asked.
——–when Gu Qing Shan wasn’t with her, she was able to make her own decisions, but with Gu Qing Shan present, she had become completely reliant on him.
Gu Qing Shan glanced at the secret passage.
The intense billowing wind carried a sense of primitive cruelty.
Although he no longer had his spirit energy, the combat instincts he had built up over countless battles on the verge of life and death still remained.
“Something is amiss”
He muttered, sheathed the Chao Yin sword at his waist and wielded the Earth sword in one hand, then took Su Xue Er’s hand with the other and retreated.
While the others were readying themselves to face the upcoming enemy, he had already taken Su Xue Er and retreated to the back of the square.
Just in time for several of the hysterical survivors to dash towards their direction.
“The monster is coming, run!”
They exclaimed in fear.
When Su Xue Er’s eyes flickered, Gu Qing Shan had already whispered to her: “Behind me”
Su Xue Er immediately went behind him.
The hysterical people were heading towards the passage where everyone first arrived from.
Gu Qing Shan abruptly stood in their way and swung his sword.
As soon as those people showed expressions of evil intentions, the sword had already cut through their bodies.
It still only took one strike.
The weapons that they just drew fell to the ground.
—–sure enough, they wanted to sneak an attack but died before achieving anything at all.
Someone shouted: “What are you doing, you dared to kill our people!?”
Gu Qing Shan discarded the blood on his sword with a single flick, stared straight at the questioning voice, and muttered: “So what if I killed them? If you want to die, come closer”
He emanated with an unadulterated, raw fighting spirit.
Having practiced the Asura royal clan’s foundation swordsmanship along with the Asura King’s swordsmanship experience, the Asura Deific King’s swordsmanship, as well as the sword Divine Skill [Rahu’s Eclipse Of Sun and Moon], Gu Qing Shan’s aura now contained a part of the Asura’s unique fighting spirit.
His swordsmanship had already surpassed Convergence Realm, steadily making its way towards the realm of Sword Deity.
The one who questioned him hesitated before shutting up.
Everyone was fearful.
——this man is truly terrifying, killing several people with a single strike, his swordsmanship skills had already reached the point of surpassing the limit of power.
In a situation where everyone only has a single ability left, this man can become a killing machine even without any abilities.
Rather than his swordsmanship, what’s even more terrifying about him are his eyes that saw through everything.
Those people were clearly fleeing for their lives, but he was capable of discerning their true intention and accurately killed them just before they were about to act.
While shielding Su Xue Er, Gu Qing Shan continued retreating.
At this point, a hoarse voice resounded from inside the secret passage, speaking in the Old God-language:
The world of Dust cannot be intruded upon; violators shall end up dead
A large figure slithered out from inside the secret passage.
Snake body, human head, clad in scaley armor, four claws, as well as an endless flow of fire around its body.
It was a monster that had never been seen before!
Gu Qing Shan’s anxiousness grew stronger.
Invisible fluctuations instantly manifested from the void of space.
The fluctuations descended and silently attached themselves to the outside of the Earth sword.
——-[Void Slash] had been activated!
Shortly after that, the monster displayed a cruel expression and chanted:
The path is lost
With that incantation, a resounding impact emerged from behind everyone.
They couldn’t help turning back.
Only to see the passage where they arrived from had completely vanished.
The wall was completely blank.
Other than the square, they could no longer see any path to retreat.
The monster opened its toothy mouth and licked its lips with a signature long snake tongue.
Foolish fodder, now that you no longer have anywhere to flee, you all shall die right here
The flames in its body rose up high and extended towards everyone in the vicinity.
