The Divine Constellation Sword
Bai Liangong turned to look at Yi Ping with a surprise look, “You don’t know her?”
Yi Ping smiled bitterly, “I have never even seen her before.”
Bai Liangong smirked coldly, “But she seems to be here to help you…”
The mysterious golden hair maiden with the golden jadeite armor interrupted nonchalantly, “I am not here to help him either. On the contrary, if he fails to reply me satisfactory, I will definitely kill him.”
Lele smirked coldly, “I am afraid that it is easier said than done!”
Bai Liangong signaled with his hands as he said to Priest Xun who was the protégé leader of the Brilliant Access Clan, “Priest Xun, will you bring this insolent maiden to me?”
Priest Xun smiled, “It will be my pleasure of course. Remember my share when you get your hands on these divine swords.”
Bai Liangong smiled, “Naturally. There are more than enough for the six majors clans of the Martial Faction.”
Priest Xun laughed heartily as he said, “Good! I will get her heart for you then!”
Immediately Priest Xun gave a martial shout as he charged towards the mysterious golden hair maiden with seven other fighters of the Brilliant Access Clan, “Initiate the Eight Trigram Formless Formation!”
The crowd immediately gasped.
It was because the Brilliant Access Clan was also one of the five major clans that were allied with the Martial Deviant Clan and their Eight Trigram Formless Formation was renowned throughout the Celestial Realm. Once an opponent was trapped in the formation, there was no escape!
The Celeste Wind Maiden gasped silently, “They are going to attack her with the Eight Trigram Formless Formation. In this weather and unsteady ground, it will be extremely difficult for her to maneuver. If she is smart enough, she should turn back and flee first. But with that armor of hers, it is difficult…”
Yi Ping found himself calling out, “Maiden, be careful!”
Lele muttered softly, “You don’t even know she is. What if she is here to take your life?”
Yi Ping was startled but his attention quickly returned to the golden hair maiden who had suddenly dashed forward with startling speed to confront Priest Xun and his protégé brothers!
There were eight brilliant flashes of blinding light as Priest Xun and his protégé brothers quickly organized themselves into an intricate fighting formation as they took aim at the golden hair maiden one after another.
The golden hair heavenly maiden reacted by charging towards Priest Xun.
Only when she had charged and her long hair lifted with the winds did everyone noticed that she had a long sword behind her. This long sword was very unusual. It was slightly curved and a very long sword. Also the scabbard was adorned with many precious stones giving it a glittering glow in the darkness!
Immediately, there were five others who moved to intercept her with their sword strokes and killing techniques as brilliant lights exploded around her!
Priest Xun laughed coldly, “Foolish!”
But the golden hair heavenly maiden continued her charge as she raised her fingers forward and did not seem to make any attempt to draw her sword to fend off the attacks!
Much to the astonishment of the attackers, every single one of their attacks had missed her narrowly and it was only then did they notice that the golden hair maiden was fighting with her eyes closed; that was why she was not affected by the dancing lights of their Brilliant Access Swordplay!
In a blink of an eye, she had appeared next to Priest Xun!
Priest Xun was startled but he did not panic. After all, she was still trapped in their formidable Eight Trigram Formless Formation and in another blink of an eye she would be surrounded by his protégé brothers who were all expert fighters who had defeated countless opponents.
So he raised his long sword to display the Bamboo Piercing Stance, a sword stroke that attacked forward but could waver into multiple sword thrusts at the same time as he thought, “If she don’t back off now, she will be killed…”
At the same time, two others of his protégé brothers had also appeared from the side and were also displaying the Bamboo Piercing Stances!
And right behind her were five others who were also displaying the Bamboo Piercing Stance with startling speed!
Yi Ping cried out, “Be careful!”
He was about to dash forward when Yong Le had suddenly intercepted him with several powerful explosive bursts of martial force from his fingers!
Yi Ping had raised both Celestial Alice in a nick of time to deflect the explosive attacks but he was still being hurled backward!
Just as Yong Le was about to press forward with his attacks as he raised both fingers to fire at Yi Ping, Yixian had intercepted his attacks and dissipating offensive the martial energies with a few flicker of her fingers!
Yixian said quietly, “So the Martial Deviant Clan has decided to fight the Holy Ascension Sect?”
Yong Le was startled as he thought, “Who is she? She can actually counter my Soul Chaining Aerial Fingers with her fingers?”
But he was smiling heartily, “I have never seen such a graceful finger stance in my life or anyone as beautiful as you. What is your name…”
He was suddenly interrupted by a shocking sight…
The golden hair heavenly maiden had charged straight into Priest Xun and shattered his precious sword into several pieces with her fingers!
At the same time she had suddenly turned around as she lifted her long sleeves and shattered the other seven precious swords at the same time too!
In a blink of an eye, she had also gathered the broken blades as she scattered them in all directions, fatally wounding Priest Xun and his seven protégé brothers who had all collapsed painfully on the ground!
Priest Xun and the rest of his protégé brothers were so shocked and overwhelmed by her martial display that they were trembling nonstop!
Yi Ping, Bai Liangong, Yong Le and all the others were also stunned at her martial display!
The golden hair heavenly maiden said coldly, “Is that all you can do?”
Even the Celeste Wind Maiden had turned pale!
Yang Min said quietly, “The precious swords of the Brilliant Access Clan are all made of Silver Celestium and are nearly indestructible. It is impossible to shatter these precious swords with internal strength alone.”
Yunzi looked at the white glove of the golden hair maiden and wondered, “It has to do with her gloves. The effort to shatter even a normal sword requires plenty of focus and a great deal of internal strength from the practitioner. And she can shatter eight precious swords at the same time with her internal strength? This is an impossible feat to accomplish for anyone without aid. Moreover, internal strength is crucial in any fight and most practitioners won’t expend their precious internal strength in a reckless manner.
Internal strength not only maintained the focus of a martial practitioner, it also served to protect against internal injuries and attacks!
Martial power practitioners like Yi Ping and Bai Liangong required plenty of internal strength to convert their martial power to execute their martial techniques.
If the opponents were suffering from internal injuries, their movements would be slower and their breathing would be hard. That was why Bai Liangong did not think Yi Ping as a threat even if he had a divine sword in his hands!
But this golden hair maiden was still able to speak so casually after executing such severe stress on her internal strength, all the celestial practitioners were stunned!
Now they were muttering among themselves, “Who is she?”
