Chapter 74: Regardless of Personal Safety
“Ye Shang, stop messing around. This guy is totally different from the task introduction and has the cultivation base at the peak of the fourth-rank. I can’t kill it. I don’t even know if we can manage to escape since this guy is too fast!” Sikong Chuyu shouted while fighting and retreating round the boulder.
Ye Shang did not say anything since he knew that Sikong was right, the Purple Gold Beast King would not give Sikong Chuyu any opportunity to release the phoenix and fly away safely.
“What are you waiting for?” Sikong Chuyu shouted once again and dodged its attacks.
Unable to catch up, the Purple Gold Beast King was angered and shot out a purple light from its mouth.
The purple light fell on the boulder, creating a black hole on the boulder with dense honeycomb pits around. The small pits were still deepening, which was the corrosive effects of the impurities from the purple gold toxins.
However, after spraying a mouthful of the purple gold toxin, the Purple Gold Beast King had slowed down a little and the purple streamer on its body had also faded and only recovered after a while.
“Sikong, when paying attention to your own safety, try to force it to go crazy. I found that after it sprayed toxic impurities, its attack intensity decreased.” Ye Shang shouted from the boulder, originally he could only see two shadows fighting, but now he could see the body of the purple gold beast king clearly.
“Okay, don’t mess around!” Sikong sounded somewhat incoherent since continuous rapid movement and high-intensity battle had exhausted her.
An hour later, the streamer on its body dimmed and its speed was reduced. It had spewed out purple gold toxin impurities several times and was listless/sluggish. But it’s ferocious nature forced it to attack relentlessly.
Sikong Chuyu was not much better. The arm holding the sword was trembling and her robe was soaked in sweat.
“You should go, I can’t hold it any longer.” Sikong Chuyu shouted at Ye Shang, and the Purple Gold Beast King spurted the purple gold toxin impurities again at this moment.
After it sprayed out the toxin, Ye Shang jumped down from the big rock, directly rode on the Purple Gold Beast King, which became more sullen and slower, gripped its body tight with his both legs, held the reincarnation spear with both hands and plunged it into the connection between the back neck and the head of the Purple Gold Beast King.
The spear went only half-foot into its body, which shocked Ye Shang very much since his arms now had the strength over thousands of pounds and the reincarnation spear was sharp.
He wondered how strong the Purple Gold Beast King was.
This was the only chance!
Ye Shang knew that if he couldn’t seize this opportunity, he and Sikong Chuyu would both die here.
At this moment, Sikong Chuyu was completely exhausted and fell to the ground.
With a roar, Ye Shang shook his arms, exerted all the strength, the qi in his Dantian burst out, infusing the shock waves into the reincarnation spear.
The power of the 7th stage of the Blood Quenching Realm of the Myriad Dao Treasured Tome and shock waves penetrated the connection of its neck and head.
Ye Shang exerted strength with his waist, pushed its body towards the ground and stabbed the spear deeper with both arms again as he wanted to nail the purple gold beast king here because Sikong Chuyu would be in danger if it attacked again.
Under the pressure, the two forelegs of the purple gold beast king could not hold its weight and it knelt on the ground, which allowed the reincarnation spear to plunge into the hard purple gold ore ground through its neck.
The Purple Gold Beast King exerted force with its two hind legs and tried to move towards the front. Ye Shang plunged the reincarnation spear into the ground to prevent the Purple Gold Beast King from moving.
Ye Shang was strong, but the Purple Gold Beast King was even stronger.
Carrying Ye Shang on its back, it dragged the reincarnation spear, cutting a deep groove on the ground and continued to crawl toward Sikong.
“Get up, go!” Ye Shang screamed.
Sikong Chuyu stood up, bit her teeth, and rushed over with a sword stabbing towards the now open mouth of the Purple Gold Beast King.
The purple gold beast king twisted its head, dodging her attack.
Sikong Chuyu stepped back a few steps but she happened to step on a protruding stone as she stumbled.
Turning its head, the purple gold beast king raised its head.
Ye Shang knew that this was a prelude to the Purple Gold Beast King attack to spray purple gold toxic impurities.
He struck the reincarnation spear with his left hand, and leaped towards Sikong Chuyu
At this moment, Ye Shang was not thinking anything else. He just felt that he could not let Sikong Chuyu get hurt.
An excruciating pain shot through his back and Ye Shang lost consciousness.
When he opened his eyes again, he found himself on a rock, while Sikong Chuyu was washing a towel stained with blood.
Ye Shang found himself naked, and the body of the Purple Gold Beast King was not far away, but its body was full of wounds.
“You’re awake? I helped you kill it. Does your back hurt?” Sikong Chuyu arrived at his side and asked him.
“It hurts, it’s really painful. The power of the purple gold toxic impurities is really strong.” Ye Shang moved his body and his back hurt severely.
“It had already used it many times and was on the brink of death, so there was only a trace amount of purple gold toxic impurities left inside it. Otherwise, you would have died. Why are you so foolish?” Sikong Chuyu took the towel and helped him clean up.
“It’s okay as long as I stay alive.” Ye Shang took out his clothes and sat up to wear them.
“Don’t wear it now. If I didn’t have the antidote with me, you would be dead. Wait for the wound to scab before wearing your clothes, or there will be scars.” Sikong Chuyu said.
” I can’t always be naked now, can I?” Ye Shang said.
“Don’t worry, it will scab soon.” Sikong Chuyu said with a smile.
Ye Shang nodded as he wasn’t in a hurry.
“Thank you this time, but you can’t always be so foolish in the future.” Sikong Chuyu.
“I know, aren’t you hurt?” Ye Shang asked Sikong Chuyu.
“My arm was slightly hurt, but you blocked most of the attack, otherwise I would have been disfigured even if I didn’t die.” Sikong Chuyu blushed.
At the most critical moment, Ye Shang hugged her and blocked the purple gold impurities spewed out by the Purple Gold Beast King with his back.
“This Purple Gold Beast King was really amazing.” Ye Shang took out a jar of wine, opened it, and took a sip.
“Give me some too,” Sikong Chuyu took the wine from Ye Shang and started drinking as she was still feeling overwhelmed.
