The Stairway of Heavens
A hundred blinks of an eye had since passed since the white golem knights had spawned and descended into their midst. This was not actually a long while but if time could be measured, that would be less than two minutes time.
Yi Ping was slashing furiously at the white golem knights as golden lights flashed to and fro brilliantly around him. He had taken down two of the white golem knights but he was still being surrounded tightly by many of the white golem knights. There were simply too many of them!
He was not worried for himself but for the rest of his delegates who were with him!
But despite his best efforts to rein in the unstoppable wave of the white golem knights, he had failed to prevent them from overcoming his line of defense!
In just a quick instant, the entire vicinity was filled with brilliant lights and thunderous explosions, as everyone was attacking furiously with all their best martial skills and weapons!
Even though Yi Ping was anxious and panicky for his group but at the same time he was surprising serene within him. How could he have such an extraordinary feeling?
The real question was; how could he feel anxious and serene at the same time? This was such a weird feeling that had surfaced to his mind!
With just a look, he was able to analyze the entire battle field coolly. Even though these white golem knights were extremely formidable but he was still able to see and predict their moves. That was why he was able to get two of them down. Even though he was still being outnumbered but it would be a matter of time if he could get all of them, provided of course that his morale and spirit would not be dealt a blow by the demise of his companions. Every grief, every emotion and every distraction would sap his strength, lengthened the battle and contributed to his injury, his loss of strength and his focus and would cause him to lose the fight, even causing his own demise.
This type of emotionless analysis was not Yi Ping’s true nature of course. But after the three in one merging, he had also awakened the consciousness of the White Sage, the Dark Chaos Lord and the Great God Pangu that were within him.
This cold and hard analysis were the analysis of his three other consciousness!
While he was fighting, he had also taken note of the current state of battle that was raging all around him.
One, the White Divine Tiger and the Golden Kirin Beast were not making a move against the White Golem Knights; it was as though the White Golem Knights were invisible to them!
Two, while the White Golem Knights were extremely formidable and appeared to be highly aggressive, it was weird that Han Lin and Aiel were still holding up against them, even though they were not exactly faring very good, with multiple injuries.
But his observations had hinted to him that while these White Golem Knights were not giving away leeway, their very moves were subtly, even calculated to give a small enough opening for the defenders to prolong the battle until they were no longer be able to put up any resistance!
The question was why!
All of a sudden Yi Ping noticed an opening between the White Golem Knights and this small opening would perhaps allowed him to speed past them and ascend to the top of the stairs where the Divine Armor of the Great God Pangu was!
Xian’Er and Lingfeng had whispered to Yi Ping at almost the same time, “Yi Ping, Ping’Er, there is something amiss here.”
Xian’Er fenced off several of the attacks of the surrounding White Golem Knights, taking quick steps back and countering with her Heavenly Tear, before she whispered to Yi Ping. “Lingfeng is right. I feel that something seems amiss here but I can’t place a finger to it! Ping’Er, if you can see an opening, quickly dash up the stairs. That may be our only way out of this.”
Yi Ping could no longer see Lingfeng as she had disappeared under a mushroom burst of explosive force but he could hear her whispering haltingly to him, “That is…exactly my sentiments…too…alas!…”
Alice interrupted them, “Lingfeng, watch out! Don’t fight and talk at the same time. I will watch your back for you!”
Lie Qing was overheard whispering, “These creatures are simply too bothersome.”
Lingfeng was heard, “Thanks my Goddess Alice! Yi Ping, ascend up the stairs if you are able to. These White Golem Knights, something is wrong with them but I cannot place my fingers yet. But it seems that every some time, they were reformed their formation to attack us aggressively. But at the same time, they will be an opening in-between them that can allow someone with a quick swiftness movement to bypass them and to climb up the stairs.”
Yi Ping whispered, “Actually I can see that too.”
