Chapter 320: Killing a horse first to kill a person
Finally, King riding atop his dark horse in the center gave a low and deep cold snort. Although it was only a snort, it was very piercing, making everyone’s inner emotions tremble. Following this, he turned around and prepared to leave. He had never had the habit of waiting for others.
The crowd began to separate again with hearts filled with regret. If King left like this, then even if Xie Tian came afterwards, this challenge would be a waste. However, before the dark horse under King could move, a clear disturbance came over the crowd.
“What’s wrong? Are you afraid after seeing me arrive and are prepared to escape?”
A teasing voice came from behind King. His eyes went cold and he turned his horse around again. In his line of sight, standing less than five meters in front of him was a man that appeared out of nowhere who had a mocking smile on his face.
With his hands across his chest, he had a metallic headband, a dark gold cloak, and two dragon head shaped bracers on his hands. Only Xie Tian had this set of equipment.
Earlier, when he suddenly appeared behind King, the crowd let out shocked cries.
Because this was where he had logged off before. When he had picked this location, he had come here ahead of time and picked the most suitable spot in this area before logging off. When he logged on, he found that the spot he had picked was too perfect, being right in the center of the crowd.
“You are Xie Tian?” King’s line of sight came out of the two holes in the black mask and pierced into Xie Tian’s face. As for his voice…..The moment he opened his mouth to speak, many players present covered their ears. This was not the voice of a human, it was as ear piercing as two pieces of sandpaper rubbing against each other.
Ye Tian Xie did not hide his body’s appearance and pointed to the name above his head. With a slight curl of his lips, he said, “Person named ‘King’ from the Endless Cycle of Reincarnation, if your eyes can’t even recognize these two characters, I suggest you go back and study for another two years before coming out to play.”
“Pu…..” Zuo Po Jun directly broke out in laughter.
As for the members of the Endless Cycle of Reincarnation, their expressions changed with varying degrees.
Not only was Ye Tian Xie’s words not polite, there was even a clear insulting tone to it. As for who these words were aimed for, it was Endless Cycle of Reincarnation’s King……Others did not know King’s true identity, but the eight members of the Endless Cycle of Reincarnation knew everything.
King was a very, very terrifying person. In their eyes, he was more terrifying than anyone and was a person that could never be offended. As for people that dared to mock him…..Ye Tian Xie was the first person to do so.
“How reckless.” Blue Dust gave a cold laugh.
“With these words, he is already dead. I’m talking about his real life. Ai, pity, what a pity.” Perfect Blue stroked his brows with movements as light as a woman.
“He is dead for sure……I feel sorry for this interesting little brother.” Blue Windy Moon stretched her long, slender finger as she spoke with a regretful tone.
“Daring to provoke him, does he dislike living a long life?” Ling Yu said with a cold snort.
Single Slash Soaring Through the Clouds stared at Ling Yu and said nothing. His eyes then stared at Ye Tian Xie.
“This…..How does he dare say this to him?” Violent Star Shadow Spirit’s expression became visibly anxious. His hands grabbed his clothes and he stood there with an uneasy appearance. Single Slash Soaring Through the Clouds looked at him and said in a low voice, “Care about yourself. Don’t do anything you shouldn’t do.”
“I don’t need to remind me!” Violent Star Shadow Spirit impolitely snapped back.
Single Slash Soaring Through the Clouds looked away and said nothing. He was already used to how Violent Star Shadow Spirit treated him.
As for maintaining one’s calm, there was Meng Yu Yi, but perhaps this was just her usual calm. When Xie Tian appeared, her eyes had fallen onto his face, but she instantly looked away. It was unknown whether she was unwilling to look at him, or if she was avoiding something. When she heard Ye Tian Xie’s taunting words, her eyes slightly trembled.
With a same calm expression, Blood Cycle looked at Meng Yu Yi with a gaze as sharp as a knife. Without saying a word, his eyes then looked back onto Xie Tian.
Ye Tian Xie’s words had made King’s eyes instantly turn sinister…..That’s right, sinister. Everyone talked about sinister eyes, but in this moment, faced with the eyes that King was revealing at this moment, they finally knew…..what sinister eyes were truly like!
It was like touching someone’s reverse scales and invoking a wild hatred!
The people of Blood Dream Paradise did not have so called self control as they were all killers by profession. Blood was rarely seen in this era, so how many true killers were there? As for them, they were group of demons that could kill people without blinking an eye. This was because to kill someone, one had to ignore the target’s blood and life, so their blood was cold and their hearts were emotionless. Faced with someone that offended them, they would not choose to say anything and directly take their lives.
Faced with these kinds of eyes, Ye Tian Xie did not seem to notice anything. His eyes fell onto the horse underneath King and his face revealed an interested expression ,”However, your mount is not bad.”
Ye Tian Xie eyes shined, but hidden deep within was a growing envy. He was jealous of the mount underneath King.
He had a strong Job, strong equipment, and strong pets…..but he just did have a mount that could match them. Kaka? It had a large background and allowed him to transform into the Sacred Sword War God to combat the Dark Ghost King. When it recognized him as its master, Ye Tian Xie had set it to being a mount, but it was still only level fourteen and still had the words “temporarily cannot be mounted” in its description. Even if it could be mounted, with Kaka’s appearance…..
As for this King, he actually had……a Fifth Grade Mount. This was a Black Flame Horse that could attack with black flames!!
His level had surpassed his and now he even had a strong, attention attracting mount, how could he not be jealous!!
Ye Tian Xie’s attention had been pulled away, leaving King and falling onto the Black Flame Horse beneath him.
Things that he did not have, how could this King have.
The jet black Moment of Destiny formed in Ye Tian Xie’s hand and looked at King’s bone chilling gaze with a calm expression. The Moment of Destiny in Ye Tian Xie’s hand pointed at him and he slowly said, “Since you’re here, then let’s begin…..But I need to correct something. The announcement I had my friend sent had a mistake in it. I called you here not to test your strength, but rather I wanted to see……how many seconds a person named King like you could last under my hand.”
Arrogance, extreme arrogance. These were words filled with arrogance!
The expressions of all the members of Endless Cycle of Reincarnation changed. All the people that knew King’s identity and his power had their expressions changed by Ye Tian Xie’s words because he was declaring…..he did not pay any attention to King from the start.
“Go and…..die!!” A hoarse and deep voice came from King’s mouth. He finally made his move, jumping down from the back of his horse. His tall body was as light as a dark light.
Right when King made his move, a sly light flashed in Ye Tian Xie’s eyes. He also moved forward and his body turned into a glow of light as he suddenly shot at the Black Flame Horse that had separated from its master.
In the early stages of the game, the only ones that could fight on mounts were warriors and knights, assassins didn’t have this ability. At the same time, assassins would not pick to fight on mounts because even though mounts increased their move speed, an assassin’s greatest advantage……their flexibility and personal mobility would be lost. So, Ye Tian Xie was 100% certain that before King attack, he would dismount first.
What he was waiting for was the small period of time that came after he dismounted.
When a mount was being ridden, it would have a special protection that wouldn’t let it be injured, but once it left its master, it would lose this protection. King jumping off his horse did not even take a second. When he fell to the ground, he would immediately call back his mount…..However, Ye Tian Xie did not give him that chance.
The instant King left his Black Flame Horse, Ye Tian Xie charged forward with a “Dragon Shadow Slash”. His body wielded the Moment of Destiny as he passed the Black Flame Horse.
Ye Tian Xie’s movement was too fast and everyone only saw a blur as Ye Tian Xie disappeared from their line of sight. Only when a red damage figure appeared above the Black Flame Horse did some people react.
Suffering over a thousand damage, the Black Flame Horse still did not die. However, the HP bar above its head was almost completely empty. Ye Tian Xie did not even turn as he sent another “Dragon Rend Slash” at it.
King had just landed two meters away as the tall horse gave a pitiful cry in his line of sight which made him contract his eyes. Then it fell to the ground with its limbs twitching a few times and then it made no further sounds.
Mounts and pets were different. After pets died, it could be revived like a player, but its level and loyalty would drop. Mounts were not the same. For mounts under the Spiritual Grade, once they died, they would truly die and could not be revived like pets.
Seeing the Black Flame Horse on the ground, a proud smile flashed on Ye Tian Xie’s face. In his jealousy, he wanted to destroy two things and he had completed one of those goals.
“Black Flame!” King’s body turned stiff for a second before he squatted down beside the corpse of the Black Flame Horse. He never would have thought that in the short moment when he jumped off his mount, Ye Tian Xie would suddenly attack. With his peerless speed, he had knocked down his hard to earn mount…..no, he killed it.
Because he had lost his connection with the Black Flame Horse, he tried summoning it back twice, but he received no response…..Because what was on the ground was a corpse. After another minute passed, even the corpse would disappear.
“He…..He actually killed Black Flame!!” Ling Yu said in a low and deep voice.
“Such speed and power!”
“……If you were to face this kind of attack, what are your odds of surviving?”
“Close to zero!” Perfect Blue’s casual expression disappeared as he spoke with a serious expression.
