Chapter 951: A Kid Before A Giant

    Chapter 951: A Kid Before A Giant

    Translator: WQL  Editor: Aleem

    Lying on the ground, Zhang Tie was not in a coma. He had listened to the dialogue between Old Monster Qi and the demon knight and noticed the situation of Mountain Lifting Hermit...

    If it were on a battlefield, a common soldier might survive himself by pretending to be killed. However, in this hieron's hall, under the eyes of an earth demon knight and an earth knight of Three-eye Association, it didn't work by playing dead or being in a coma.

    As Zhang Tie's head was facing the gate of the hieron's hall, when the gate was slowly closed under the control of Old Monster Qi and made it impossible for outsiders to enter it, Zhang Tie became depressed. He knew that it was the most dangerous moment that he had ever experienced since he was born.

    If he were not that curious, he might have to face a worse situation if he was not here. However, now that he had come here, Zhang Tie didn't regret. If he didn't come here and just stayed somewhere in the Weapons Mountain, the demon knight who held the crystal ball would not let them feel better than now.

    The crystal ball was the system control hub of the entire hieron, which was still safe and sound now. As long as it held the crystal ball, it would be able to control the temperature and air supply and flow in all portals in this huge pyramid. This was what Zhang Tie had known after injecting his spiritual energy into the crystal ball just now.

    Portals, temperature, air sounded very simple; however, they were fatal to human knights in this pyramid under the control of the crystal ball which worked as the key of a house and the key of the air-conditioner in the house.

    Zhang Tie struggled to pick himself up by one knee as he spat out another mouth of blood.

    Only after a short while, under the control of the crystal ball in the hand of Old Monster Qi, the temperature in the hieron's hall had recovered 24 degrees Celcius from the icy temperature, arising Zhang Tie's reverence to the dreamlike far-ancient civilization.

    Previously, Zhang Tie had heard about a theory about pyramid when in Blackhot City, which was taught by his nature teacher--many huge pyramids were able to disturb and regulate their climate in the partial region. Zhang Tie didn't believe in it until now.

    The temperature in the hieron's hall became more comfortable; however, a greater crisis was coming soon, making Zhang Tie extremely flurried.

    Zhang Tie threw a glance at the hieron's hall as he asked himself inside, 'Do I need to expose my trump cards?'

    Zhang Tie had two trump cards: first, Castle of Black Iron. With Castle of Black Iron, even in such an environment, Zhang Tie could still have a chance to survive; second, the most mysterious and powerful knight's profession that he had promoted to. Since he killed the demon knight, Zhang Tie had not exposed that ability in the public.

    However, even with the two trump cards, he might not be able to solve the problem, either.

    As for the first trump card, if Zhang Tie used it, he would survive himself; however, he might not be able to save Mountain Lifting Hermit and Lin Huanxi. Additionally, his friends Gong Ziyao, Zhou Shufan and Filton would probably be in danger. Even if Zhang Tie escaped this time, he had to stop using the status of Cui Li from then on. Zhang Tie could imagine what the demons and the Three-eye Association would do when they knew that he had such a marvelous ability. Zhang Tie was afraid that Cui Li would not only face two earth knights by then.

    As for the second trump card, even if he used it at his full efforts now, he could only deal with one of the two earth knights who were safe and sound at this moment. He was not sure for success no matter how sharp was that knight's profession.

    'What should I do then?'

    'I have to fight at my full efforts!'

    Zhang Tie's eyes became decisive as he struggled to pick himself up from the ground...

    Old Monster Qi and the demon baron both saw Zhang Tie struggling to stand up; however, they directly ignored him after throwing a glimpse at him; especially Old Monster Qi, who had been shocked that Zhang Tie could still stand up after being struck by him at his full efforts. He didn't believe that such a common black iron knight could pose any threat to him. He despised Zhang Tie when the latter was safe and sound, not to mention this moment.

    After sensing that they were destined to win and nobody else could threaten them, Old Monster Qi and the demon baron couldn't wait to negotiate about the division of their "booties"...

    "Mountain Lifting Hermit and Cui Li belong to me, that woman belongs to you as you brought her in. As for the knights outside the gate, we go fifty-fifty..." Old Monster Qi suggested.

    "You've taken all the benefits. Could you digest so many knights?" The demon baron sneered.

    Although they were cooperating with each other, they didn't believe in each other at all. In front of the interests, neither of them would make a compromise.

    "My earth chakra has been wounded and not recovered yet; additionally, I've got two secret battle skills which could reach their great perfections through this bloody sacrifice..."

    "Now that you need it, I need it too. The earth knight belongs to me. The other two belongs to you. Actually, if you could knock down that earth knight outside the gate, you could own him too. As for others, we go fifty-fifty!" The demon baron proposed its plan.

    "No way!"

    "Do you want to try my fist?" The demon baron looked aggressive.

    After gazing at the demon baron with narrowed eyes, Old Monster Qi finally made a concession, "When we're going to deal with the elder of Tianlu Palace, you should fight him together with me!"

    "That's the deal!"

    After reaching an agreement in a few words, they turned around and walked towards their own "target"--the demon baron walked towards Mountain Lifting Hermit while Old Monster Qi walked towards Zhang Tie.

    Seeing Old Monster walking towards Zhang Tie, given the safety of the crystal ball, the demon baron reminded Old Monster Qi, "Watch out, this black iron knight is very powerful and tricky. He's much more powerful than common black iron knights. You'd better keep well your crystal ball in case of losing it to this black iron knight! If you could keep him for the time being, I will exchange the other black iron knight for him with you. I will peel him off alive and watch him being sacrificed by me..."

    Old Monster Qi burst out into laughter as he replied with a conceited look, "Hahahaha, he's just a black iron knight. I've killed so many black iron knights, including those elites of the top seven sects in Taixia Country. This man is still useful. I will not "sacrifice" him right away; I will release him out of here. This guy has a good human relationship with those people below us. Additionally, except for these people here, nobody else knows that I could control him with my soul-controlling method and have him work for me. When we go collect fish outside there, this guy could help us a lot at the critical moment!"

    As the old saying went, people should never be conceited at any time; even if deities disliked those conceited guys. The moment one became conceited, he would not face any good outcome for sure.

    Old Monster Qi didn't know that Zhang Tie instantly changed his mind when he prepared to expose his second trump card after hearing his words.

    'Soul-controlling Method?'

    Zhang Tie had also mastered it. Additionally, Zhang Tie could trigger this secret method with his extremely strong spiritual energy.

    Zhang Tie had reached a mysterious level on cultivating various secret methods of the "Soul-forbidden Skill".

    Old Monster Qi was very confident; especially about the various secret methods of Bloody Soul Temple that he had mastered; however, he had not imagined that this muscled man in front of him cultivated and excelled at the same soul-controlling method of Bloody Soul Temple...

    What shocked Old Monster Qi more was Zhang Tie's strong spiritual energy...

    ...

    "Go die..."

    When Zhang Tie was waiting for Old Monster Qi, Mountain Lifting Hermit sprung up and darted towards the demon baron with an unprecedented killing intent.

    Out of the dignity of an earth knight, even though Mountain Lifting Hermit knew that he had no chance to win on the premise of being heavily wounded, he still launched an attack on his own initiative instead of waiting to be killed.

    Although he was always silent and distant, Mountain Lifting Hermit's temperament was extremely staunch with moral integrity.

    The moment he moved, his wounds had been aggravated in a split second while his eyes, ears, nostrils and mouth spurted out black blood at the same time. At the same time, an exotic, virtual long rainbow appeared in the air...

    When the long rainbow crossed the sky, the cold wind was aroused while the dauntless assassin sacrificed himself to strike his enemy!

    "I've not imagined that you have awakened the most powerful assassin bloodline among Hua people. Pitifully, if you were not heavily wounded, I might keep far away from your strike; however, your current strike is less than 20% of its full destruction..." The demon baron said casually with a contemptuous look as it easily dodged Mountain Lifting Hermit's strike. Closely after that, he punched Mountain Lifting Hermit and sent him flying away, spraying a lot of blood in the air...

    ...

    "Go die..." Mountain Lifting Hermit sprung up and rushed towards the demon knight once again at the risk of his life...

    When Zhuanzhu assassinated Liao the king of State Wu, it was like a comet rushing towards the moon and a meteor flashing by in the sky in daytime; when Yaoli assassinated Qingji, a son of Liao, it was like a falcon landing on a platform; when Niezheng assassinated Jifu the king of State Han, it was like a white light shooting into the sky. As a common earth knight, of course, he should always have a heroic spirit...

    ...

    Watching Mountain Lifting Hermit's heroic movements, Zhang Tie's eyes turned wet...

    "You son of b*tch, this father will fight you to death!" Zhang Tie was driven mad as he roared and rushed towards Old Monster Qi. It seemed that he was going to make the final try out of courage and braveness...

    ...

    Only after a few minutes, Old Monster Qi with a sneer had pinched the neck of Zhang Tie, who was like a beast in the cage. Zhang Tie looked pretty miserable as he even lost his ability to struggle. It seemed that Zhang Tie had completely lost his ability to launch a counter-attack.

    Catching Zhang Tie's neck, Old Monster Qi drew Zhang Tie to the front of his ugly face as he told the latter, "Look into my eyes..."

    It seemed that Old Monster Qi's words were magical. The moment Zhang Tie heard that he became faintly absent-minded at once as he looked at Old Monster Qi's eyes unconsciously.

    Two looming ghost flames instantly shot into Zhang Tie's eyes from Old Monster Qi's eyes...

    ...

    Old Monster Qi's soul entered Zhang Tie's mind sea at once...

    The moment it entered Zhang Tie's mind sea, Old Monster Qi had been startled. Because he had not seen such a vast mind sea before; additionally, Old Monster Qi had not imagined that Zhang Tie's mind sea was completely a cloud of mist, in which, his soul could not even identify directions.

    'I have to locate the soul of Cui Li and control it as soon as possible.'

    Old Monster Qi's soul started to fly as fast as light in Zhang Tie's mind sea.

    All of a sudden, Zhang Tie's mind sea became dark. Out of curiosity, Old Monster Qi's soul looked up and saw a 300-m high golden giant behind him. Old Monster Qi's height only reached the giant's knees.

    Old Monster Qi's soul instantly became a 3-year old kid in front of a furious king kong.

    'Wait, this guy doesn't look as same as Cui Li...'

    Old Monster Qi had a doubt...

    However, he could not get any answer anymore.

    The familiar giant with a strange look sneered as he raised up one foot and stomped Old Monster Qi's soul into pieces with the latter's shriek and rapid kicks...

    Old Monster Qi's soul was devoured by Zhang Tie's immediately in the fiercest way...

    ...

    At this moment, Old Monster Qi who caught Zhang Tie's neck suddenly quivered all over as his nostrils, ears, eyes and mouth spurted out blood at the same time. Meanwhile, he looked like an idiot while his hand which was catching Zhang Tie's neck lost its strength and hung down at once...

    After a solemn eye light flashed by, Zhang Tie picked the gold-eaten tri-edged dagger by his foot and held it by hand. Closely after that, he wove his dagger and cut off Old Monster Qi's head, sending his head flying out while a blood beam spurted out of Old Monster Qi's neck...

    Zhang Tie put his dagger away as fast as a lightning bolt. After that, he caught Old Monster Qi's head by one hand and the crystal ball that had floated up from the latter's hand by the other hand. At the same time, he roared, "Stop..."

    ...

    Right then, the demon baron put Mountain Lifting Hermit under his foot.

    Hearing Zhang Tie's roar, the demon baron turned around and caught sight of Old Monster Qi's beheaded body lying on the ground, the head in Zhang Tie's one hand and the crystal ball in Zhang Tie's other hand.

    Through Old Monster Qi's hand, the crystal ball returned to Zhang Tie's hand.

    Although Old Monster Qi died, was Zhang Tie still alive? Nobody knew what happened at that moment except for Zhang Tie. Though Old Monster Qi seemed to have wasted some time in Zhang Tie's mind sea, actually, his soul had just searched in Zhang Tie's mind sea for less than 0.5 seconds...
