Chapter 266 The Second Three-Footed Golden Toad
The tallest tree in the woods is destroyed by the wind.
Treasure could cause disaster, and people with talent and ideals suffered.
Although he hadn’t learned the secret of fire control and couldn’t even make a full turn, he had fully control over the lamp and the Nanming Li fire. If he showed too much of his strength, Xu Hai and Leng Yu might turn against him, so Mu Yi deliberately let the Nanming Li fire out of control. As for breaking all the poisonous mist, it was a fluke.
The result was perfect. He could pretend to suffer from the backfire and no one would take him as a threat.
Mu Yi was also happy to hide, so that after the Sutra of the Seventh Methods of the Yin and the Fu was discovered, he would be ready to fulfill his promise to Leng Yu.
What’s more, Mu Yi didn’t want to give up.
Although he was still far from the peak of the second difficulty, he needed to prepare himself. If he missed this opportunity, it would be hard to find another.
In the distance, the five were fighting with all their strength. The power of the surrounding world was stirred. Some first-class experts who were a little closer to Xu Hai all stepped back in fear.
When five people moved, the water pool rose from the sky and the whole cave trembled.
The Three-Footed Golden Toad opened its mouth, then its body grew unexpectedly as the five attacked it.
Blood splattered everywhere as it was severely injured the Three-Footed Golden Toad. The Three-Footed Golden Toad’s eyes became red, and its tongue flew out like a flash of lightning, attacking Dong Chuanjiang.
Dong Chuanjiang saw the Three-Footed Golden Toad’s attack and he thought he had bad luck, but he used all his strength to attack.
With a loud noise, Dong Chuanjiang stepped on the water and retreated, and the pool under his feet exploded. A tongue suddenly appeared in the pool, stopped him and rolled him into the pool.
The whole process lasted less than a second. Qin Sanchao couldn’t react even though he was right beside him.
When the other four retreated to the shore, Dong Chuanjiang had disappeared. There was another Three-Footed Golden Toad hidden in the pool.
The experts looked bad. They thought that the Three-Footed Golden Toad had little wisdom, but they had been fooled. It was absolutely not good for them.
“Help him!”Qin Sanchao said, then he jumped into the pool. Among everyone, he had the best relationship with Dong Chuanjiang, despite their show of quarreling.
“Taoist Ning and I will take this one. The underwater one will trouble the Lou Zhu,” Xu Hai said.
Two Three-Footed Golden Toad worried him.
“Yes!” Leng Yu said, tiptoed a little, and also sank into the pool. The pool stilled after she entered.
After Leng Yu fell into the pool, Xu Hai and Ning Wuque went to the Three-Footed Golden Toad in front of them to kill it.
As for the people around, they were totally dazed at the moment, and they couldn’t help but secretly rejoice the old experts were there to deal with the Three-Footed Golden Toad.
Compared with the ground, the underwater space was undoubtedly larger. The whole pool was like a pyramid, small in width but very deep.
When Leng Yu entered the water, she found two people fighting with the Three-Footed Golden Toad. Dong Chuanjiang’s arm was broken. Even with Qin Sanchao, the two were still at a disadvantage.
Underwater was a battlefield belonging to the Three-Footed Golden Toad. When a normal person entered the water, he could only wield up to one third of his strength, and as time went by, the situation would become more and more unfavorable.
Leng Yu looked at the Three-Footed Golden Toad and did not hesitate to move quickly towards it. Compared with the one on the golden coffin, the underwater one was smaller, but it was more difficult to fight because it was in the water.
Xu Hai and Ning Wuque used all their strength to fight the Three-Footed Golden Toad above the surface. Xu Hai tried to walk in the air several times. His hands fell down, and the thunder rolled. Every time he fell on the Three-Footed Golden Toad, he made a dull sound. Gradually, its eyes and mouth began to bleed.
Ning Wuque used the sword to fight the Three-Footed Golden Toad’s tongue, trapping it.
The people nearby were obsessed with dissecting the battle. If they could understand even a trace of it, they would definitely benefit.
Mu Yi didn’t miss the wonderful battle, but his focus was on Xu Hai’s application of the power of heaven and earth. Similarly, Xu Hai’s current state only touched the tip of iceberg and greatly increased his attack power. If he really controlled the power of heaven and earth, how powerful it would be.
Just thinking about it made him yearn to know more.
Compared with Xu Hai, Ning Wuque’s attack was pure sword control. The peach wood sword was as fast as lightning under his control, and Mu Yi could see it. Although the sword control was powerful, it had one disadvantage: it couldn’t be too far away.
According to Mu Yi’s observation, the range of Ning Wuque’s sword control was probably between three to six meters, and even in that range, he couldn’t match Xu Hai.
Xu Hai’s power of heaven and earth through his palms would disturb Ning Wuque’s sword control rendering it weaker.
What if it was him? How would he defend himself?
It was an urgent question considering Xu Hai’s warning and Leng Yu’s questionable support. he wanted to leave the tomb alive and knew that he would have to face Ning Wuque’s full power that was empowered by heaven and earth.
Mu Yi’s cultivation was much lower, so the situation would be more and more unfavorable to him. Therefore, Mu Yi was eager to figure out the Ning Wuque’s techniques and find a counterattack.
‘Five thunders charm? Maybe it could have worked, but not now. The six ding-headed Stem-Branch pairs and six jia-headed Stem-Branch pairs charm? With my current strength, if I used it again, even if I couldn’t defeat him, I could at least escape with my life. However, it is the last resort. The Bamboo Tree of Life?’
It could resist the peach wood sword, but the key was the speed. It was hard to keep up with the eyes alone. The peach wood sword was controlled by the power of mind and spirit and took its speed from the speed of the power of mind and spirit.
‘The lamp and the Nanming Li fire?’ It might be effective to use fire to subdue wood, but when the speed of the sword reached its maximum, it wouldn’t be as effective.
Mu Yi thought quickly, and one idea after another emerged in his mind, but he eventually vetoed them one by one. Even he had to admit that when his strength reached the realm of Ning Wuque, many attacks would lose their effect.
The only thing he could rely on now was the lamp. However, due to the short time, he had not yet cultivated the secret technique of fire control. Otherwise, he would have a means of long-range attack.
Even in the face of Ning Wuque’s sword, there was a chance of success if he could manage it.
Although Mu Yi always thought that he had a lot of talent, it would take at least a few months, or even longer, to practice the secret technique of fire control.
‘Do it or not?’
Mu Yi saw that Ning Wuque was fighting with the Three-Footed Golden Toad and had no time to worry about other things. If he suddenly exerted all his effort, he might be able to injure Ning Wuque enough if he used the six ding-headed Stem-Branch pairs and six jia-headed Stem-Branch pairs charm. If he missed, he might die here. If Leng Yu was with him, he didn’t mind taking a chance because no matter how Leng Yu used him, she still would be on Mu Yi’s side. With Leng Yu, the possibility of killing Ning Wuque would be greatly increased.
It would not be necessary if his ally was Xu Hai. He really cared about the Sutra of the Seventh Methods of the Yin and the Fu. For the wonderful book, he would join hands with Ning Wuque and others. If Mu Yi grabbed it, he would fight Mu Yi.
Xu Hai looked nice, but it was only when there was no conflict of interest. Mu Yi believed that once he was the enemy, he would never be merciful.
So Mu Yi hesitated for a moment and finally dropped the idea.
Between Xu Hai and Ning Wuque, the Three-Footed Golden Toad was more and more seriously injured, and its breath grew rapid. The blood flowed continuously, and the golden coffin was slowly dyed red.
Under the water, Leng Yu, Qin Sanchao, and Dong Chuanjiang could only barely keep alive, and as time went by, the situation of the three people grew more grim as the Three-Footed Golden Toad attacked Dong Chuanjiang.
All of a sudden, the Three-Footed Golden Toad on the golden coffin cried out, and the sound resonated under water.
