Chapter 457: White Bone Giant
A Holy Maiden
Was she a Holy Maiden from a branch of the Holy Divine Palace, or was she a Holy Maiden of the Palace Headquarters in the Central Region
Xu Xiaoshou pondered.
His intuition told him that this simple-minded girl in front of him might not necessarily just be of the same status as Cheng Xingchu.
After all, other than being a little simple-minded, her equipment throughout were all of tip-top quality.
Her appearance, figure, cultivation..
All these didnt matter.
The most fatal point.
Was those pair of Star Eyes!
Xu Xiaoshou stared at Yu Zhiwens eyes for a long time till the girl lowered her head to avoid his gaze, then only did he ask in puzzlement:
“Ive always been very curious.
For such beautiful eyes, could they have some special ability For example, the ability to see through things.”
Yu Zhiwen was obviously stunned for a moment.
Her earlobe burned, and she hurriedly said, “Its not x-ray vision.”
“Then, does that mean that it does indeed have some other special ability”
The girl wanted to deny it, but Xu Xiaoshous eyeballs glared, and she could not say anything.
“A child shouldnt lie!”
“Your first answer wasits not, notdont have.
That explains the problem.”
“Do you really think Im stupid”
“Were already teammates.
If you hide it like this, if something unexpected happens and I dont know your ability, I wont be able to judge your specific strength, right” Xu Xiaoshou said sincerely.
Yu Zhiwens fingers toyed with her dress, and her expression suddenly became conflicted.
Xu Xiaoshous words made a lot of sense.
Since they were already teammates, it was indeed not good to lie to him.
However, the “Pearl Gem Star Eyes” was her biggest secret.
Her master had also said that this couldnt be revealed to even her closest person .
How many days had she known Xu Xiaoshou
It had been less than a day, so how could she say it
“Youre not going to say it”
Xu Xiaoshous expression became dejected, as if he had been hit by a blow.
“I cant tell you.”
Yu Zhiwens tone was a little apologetic.
“Sigh, I understand.”
Xu Xiaoshou did not force her.
After pondering for a moment, he said, “If you cant tell me, can I guess If I guess correctly, will you nod”
Yu Zhiwen was stunned.
It could still be tackled like this
“Suspected, Passive Points 1.”
Seeing that she had no reaction, Xu Xiaoshou boldly said, “Give me a direction first, and Ill guess”
Yu Zhiwen thought to herself that she didnt want to give it to him, but then she remembered that she had already rejected her teammates request once.
It was already difficult for her to reject him, and after feeling guilty, it was even more impossible for her to reject him again.
“Spirit Array Caster,” she said helplessly.
Xu Xiaoshous eyes immediately lit up.
“Spirit Array Caster”
“Youre from the Holy Divine Palace, right”
Yu Zhiwen nodded.
There was nothing to deny.
Anyone could tell at a glance, and she had no intention of hiding it.
After all, she was a person who had run away from home and still had to rely on her own familys influence to survive..
Xu Xiaoshou stroked his chin and his head moved left and right.
He narrowed his eyes and sized up Yu Zhiwen.
Yu Zhiwen was amused by his expression and couldnt help but feel interested.
She didnt believe that with a mere hint of “Spirit Array Caster”, Xu Xiaoshou would be able to come up with anything.
When it came to the Holy Divine Palace, Xu Xiaoshou didnt think that this girl would be related to a Spirit Array Caster.
At the very least, she had to be a Divine Sorceress to be worthy of her identity.
Yu Zhiwen was surprised.
She didnt nod, but she didnt deny it either.
“Are you really a Divine Sorceress”
Xu Xiaoshou had seen Fu Zhi study the Divine Secrets before, but that guy had learned it by himself relying on the Cardinal Wheel.
At best, he was only half a bucket of water.
He didnt expect that the girl in front of him was really an honest-to-God Divine Sorceress
“So, Dao Qiong… ugh, Hallmaster Dao, whats your relationship with him He cant be your Master, right”
Xu Xiaoshou was shocked by his own thoughts.
After all, there werent many people in the world who studied the Divine Secrets.
The most famous one was the current Hallmaster of the Holy Divine Palace, Dao Qiongcang.
“We are not related.”
Yu Zhiwen lowered her eyelids and slowly shook her head.
Xu Xiaoshou was resolute and decisive.
Looking at the girls expression and her eyes which were avoiding his, she was definitely lying.
“Hallmaster Dao is either your Master or your Masters Brother.
At the very least, he must have taught you Divine Secrets.”
Xu Xiaoshou took a step forward, bent down on her and forcefully said, “If you say the two of you have no relations, its definitely impossible!”
Yu Zhiwen was so shocked that she retreated continuously.
Because they were in close proximity, Xu Xiaoshou could even vaguely see the outline of her slightly parted lips under her veil.
“I was right.”
Xu Xiaoshou chuckled.
Yu Zhiwen pursed her lips and did not speak.
She suddenly did not want Xu Xiaoshou to continue guessing.
In front of this person, she actually felt as if she was naked, completely unable to hide her thoughts.
Xu Xiaoshou raised his head and looked at the sky.
In the White Cave, there was no day, no night, and no stars.
However, with his hands behind his back, he seemed to see the countless connections behind the shining star.
Xu Xiaoshou seemed to understand something.
He sighed and paced back and forth.
“Pearl Gem of the Heavens, Star marked destiny.”
“The Order of the Great Path is actually just like that.
You can see the essence of things through its appearance.
Everything operates under the established rules.”
“Heaven and Earth are like that, and so is the Galaxy.”
Xu Xiaoshou turned his head and fixed his eyes on Yu Zhiwen.
“Since the Holy Divine Palace choose you to be the Holy Maiden, then either they will give you the best resources, or you have enough talent.”
“Therefore, these pair of Star Eyes are either used to crack the Divine Secrets and even the Heaven and Earth Order.”
“Or they can analyze the truth and help you comprehend the Path, so that you can cultivate the Divine Secrets better”
Yu Zhiwens eyes widened.
“Thats not right.”
After holding it in for a long time, she finally managed to come up with such a sentence.
Xu Xiaoshou saw her reaction and knew that even if he guessed wrong, it was probably not far from the truth.
“Little girl, how old are you After all these words, youre full of lies.
Who taught you that”
Yu Zhiwens pretty face turned sullen.
She turned her head and did not dare to speak.
She realized that she could still speak in front of outsiders.
But when it came to Xu Xiaoshou, sometimes she couldnt even say a complete sentence for a long time.
This was because the fellow could either answering his own questions or hit the nail on the head.
He could treat other peoples words as his own.
“Even though you deduced wrongly, I want to ask, how did you deduce it”
Yu Zhiwen looked back at him again.
She carefully examined Xu Xiaoshous head and was very curious about its internal structure.
How did this guy grow
Cheng Xingchu had also indirectly asked about her origins and the secrets of her Star Eyes, but when she said “I cant tell”, the other party was silenced.
On the other hand, Xu Xiaoshou..
She couldnt say it, but he could!
And he could make it sound reasonable!
Yu Zhiwen was unhappy.
Earlier on, her Master had said that in this world, there were indeed people who could use their brains to kill.
In the past, she didnt understand, but now she understood.
The fellow standing in front of her probably didnt even need a brain.
With just a mouth, not only could he kill people, he could also stab hearts.
“The hint Spirit Array Caster, didnt you say that youre a Spirit Array Caster”
Xu Xiaoshou was puzzled.
Yu Zhiwen was dumbfounded once more.
“What else could there be”
Xu Xiaoshou retorted, “You are so stingy, did you give any other hints”
“Cursed, Passive Points 1.”
“Respected, Passive Points 1.”
“Lets set off!”
She took a step forward and directly walked past Xu Xiaoshou, heading deeper into the desert.
She couldnt stay here any longer.
If they continued talking, Yu Zhiwen felt like even her eighteen generations of ancestors would all be stripped clean by that young man.
They had only known each other for a short while…
“Feared, Passive Points 1.”
Xu Xiaoshou looked at her back in amusement.
The girl seemed to have gone all out.
Her emotions from being unable to say anything turned into another energy.
When she walked, she even stomped her little feet hard.
However, the habit of being dignified could not be changed in a short period of time.
It seemed to have a unique style.
Xu Xiaoshou could not help but laugh as he followed.
“Its a little cute.”
The White Cave is not white.
Under the hot energy, even the ground was slightly red.
When he reached the end of the barren bumpy land, Xu Xiaoshou realized that he was at an extremely remote cliff.
Nothing happened inside the cliff, let alone encountering any accidents.
It was like that this was not the White Cave, but an ordinary place without a name.
Yu Zhiwen in front stopped in front of a black array pattern.
Xu Xiaoshou stopped as well.
He had already sensed something was wrong along the way.
It was too quiet here.
It was as if it was protected.
Or rather, it should not be said that it was “as it”, but “indeed”!
The array pattern in front of them was the final answer.
“Those who have the exquisite stone will be randomly teleported to the designated protective spirit arrays in the beginning.
This is the Red Coats method to prevent the sheep from entering the tigers mouth (facing danger) as soon as they enter.”
“Those smugglers wont have this benefit.”
Yu Zhiwen glanced at Xu Xiaoshous expression and raised her eyebrows.
“You dont know”
I shouldve asked Elder Qiao for some basic information first!
“Hehe, theres actually something you dont know”
Yu Zhiwen burst into laughter and hurriedly covered her mouth with the back of her hand.
His face turned red.
She and Xu Xiaoshou didnt have such a good relationship, right.
How could she let down her guard
With a serious expression, she stepped into the black spirit array and waved her hand.
As Xu Xiaoshou walked, he asked, “You shouldnt have been to the White Cave before, so how did you know that there was a spirit array here”
He walked all the way, but he didnt even see it.
If he hadnt gotten close and discovered this thing with his “Perception”, he might have had to study for quite a while before even knowing he was inside a protective barrier.
The Spirit Arrays of the Red Coats were indeed impressive.
“You can see it”
The girl in front of him did not say a word, so Xu Xiaoshou asked once more.
Yu Zhiwens eyes were fixed on Xu Xiaoshou.
She did not even blink as she watched Xu Xiaoshou approach.
“What are you doing”
Xu Xiaoshou was frightened by the stare.
Yu Zhiwen waved her hand.
Her eyes curved into a smile as she realized how effective this move was.
As long as she didnt pay any attention to Xu Xiaoshou, didnt feel guilty, and didnt shift her gaze.
This fellow would seem to be at his wits end
“Why are you looking at me…”
Xu Xiaoshou frowned.
HisPerception was able to see that there wasnt anything special on his face.
He hesitated for a moment before stepping into the spirit array.
The spirit array was very small, and it was only able to squeeze one more person in.
That was the limit.
The air suddenly became quiet.
Yu Zhiwen couldnt hold on any longer.
She immediately looked away, and her intense heartbeat sounded.
She took out the exquisite stone and glanced at Xu Xiaoshou again.
She found that this guy was looking at her.
Yu Zhiwens mind was in a mess, and she connected with her spiritual sense.
The two light figures disappeared.
It was completely different from the quiet small space just now.
It was clearly not a teleportation, they had only transferred from inside the spirit arrays protective barrier to outside, and a series of noisy roars sounded in his ears.
Xu Xiaoshou suddenly lost the mood to play around, and his mind was on high alert.
Another earth-shattering roar, and even the ground shook.
Grabbing a small mound in front of him, Xu Xiaoshou lowered his body.
Yu Zhiwen did the same.
She was even more flustered than Xu Xiaoshou.
However, as her spiritual sense scanned the surrounding environment, she said something that seemed to have been prepared beforehand to avoid embarrassment after coming out.
“That protective barrier can be used as long as one has the exquisite stone.”
Her voice became weaker.
“If we encounter danger and have the exquisite stone, we can hide in it again.”
“Cursed, Passive Points 1.”
Xu Xiaoshous focus was not on this at all.
In the scene that he saw with his “Perception”, there were dozens of White Bone Giants that were each thirty to forty feet tall.
Each of them held a bone saber and a bone staff, and they were hacking at each other.
From the looks of it, it seemed like two small squads were fighting each other, and they had a deep grudge against each other.
When one of the heavy bone hammers struck the opponents skull, the White Bone Giant that was hit suddenly let out a painful cry.
For a moment, the ground shook, and dust fell from the small mound.
It was obvious that the two sounds just now came from the same way.
“What is this”
Xu Xiaoshou was stunned.
He thought that the so-called extradimensional beings would at least be special humanoid monsters, right
After all, the grey mist figures were born here.
When he saw them then, they looked acceptable.
But these White Bone Giants..
They clearly had nothing to do with the gray mist figures even for eight lifetimes!
Look at the height, the width..
These guys indeed did not have any muscles, but just a small arm bone was as thick as a tree trunk!
Yu Zhiwen looked at Xu Xiaoshou curiously.
This guy was really strange!
It was as if he could only fly and could not run.
The more basic something was, the less he knew about it.
On the contrary, the more difficult and profound something was, the more he could comprehend it in an instant
“These are White Skeletons”
Xu Xiaoshou was a little surprised.
He had heard of the name of the White Skeleton.
He also understood some of the most basic common sense.
However, this was completely different from the skinny “White Skeleton Spirits” in his impression!
“Judging from the strength of this attack, it should be at least at the peak of the Innate Stage… This body, it cant be at the Innate Physique level, right”
Xu Xiaoshou was a little suspicious.
He could see the familiar presence of the Infernal energy from the slightly red White Skeletons.
“Can these guys attack from a distance” Xu Xiaoshou asked.
“That its still okay.
Theyre invincible in close combat, but they cant kill people from a distance.
As long as we dont get pulled within their attacking distance, its fine.”
“But some can.”
Yu Zhiwen added.
Xu Xiaoshou froze and slowly turned his head.
He saw a flash of craftiness in the girls eyes.
The corner of his mouth twitched.
“What do you mean”
Yu Zhiwen smiled and said,
“These guys should be the most basic White Cave beings.”
“At least, I didnt even see any energy cores in their bodies.
I guess they just have pure fighting desire, not even intelligence.”
“The truly powerful ones should have shrunk in size instead.
Their mobility and execution are higher, and they have both melee and ranged abilities.”
Xu Xiaoshous heart clenched.
Even the most ordinary ones already possessed a strength close to that of an Innate Physique, and it even possessed the combat strength that could definitely kill an Innate in close combat.
If they were to go any higher, wouldnt that mean that the rest would at least be Masters
With this, he suddenly understood why the Red Coat lady had to advised and stopped the group of people who had been sucked into the sky when the White Cave was opened.
Without an Upper Spiritual Stage cultivation or a Master Stage cultivation, it would really be difficult for one to establish a foothold here!
“Group living creatures”
Xu Xiaoshou looked at the two obvious factions below and asked.
Yu Zhiwen nodded.
It was one thing for them to be powerful, but to live in groups
Xu Xiaoshou estimated that if he was to confront them, he should be able to send each one flying with a single punch.
However, if Yu Zhiwen were to be discovered, wouldnt she be killed on the spot
He turned around and asked in a daze, “How do you know so much Or is this the basic level Are the others actually the same as you”
Yu Zhiwens smile blossomed.
“Im the stronger one.
When the others come in, theyll probably be the same as you.
They wont know anything!”
“Oho, youre getting arrogant”
Xu Xiaoshou was amused.
He pointed at the two parties fighting below and said, “Isnt it fine as long as you have hands”
Yu Zhiwen was taken aback.
After Xu Xiaoshou finished her sentence, he flew out amidst the flames of war and dust.
With a loud cry, the dozens of tall White Bone Giants below stopped in their tracks.
With cracking sounds and a difficult turn of the head, all the White Skeletons turned their heads and saw the man standing in the air.
Sparks appeared in their eyes.
It was really sparks!
Yu Zhiwens heart skipped a beat.
She was only at the peak of the Upper Spiritual stage.
If she didnt use the Divine Secrets, it would be difficult for her to even face a single White Skeleton.
But Xu Xiaoshou charged out just like that
Yu Zhiwen knew that he was very strong, but she was still slightly disappointed.
This was very similar to those guys who would crazily try to stand up for themselves the moment they saw her.
She hated this feeling.
This feeling of purposeful performance.
Xu Xiaoshou didnt have so many thoughts.
He only had three purposes in coming to the White Cave.
One was the Fourth Sword, which was dispensable to him and belonged to the type that followed fate.
The second was the Passive Points.
This was the main purpose.
Even if he could only find theAdvanced Infernal Fire Seed, he had to level up his Passive skills and become a Master!
As for the third..
“There are no rules in the White Cave!”
Xu Xiaoshou clearly remembered Elder Sangs words.
With hisPerception, he could see that there were no Red Coats nearby.
If he did not release his combat strength at this moment and see what cultivation level he had, wouldnt he have wasted this trip
Fighting to his hearts content was his third goal!
This kind of White Bone Giant had such a high body solidity, and it was completely in line with Xu Xiaoshous combat standards.
Plus it was the most satisfying kind!
“Roar! ! !”
Both sides ignited the flames of war almost at the same time.
They stepped on the accelerator and went head-on without looking back.
Yu Zhiwen, who was behind the small mound, immediately felt her scalp go numb.
“Nearly fifty White Skeletons.
Xu Xiaoshou, have you gone mad”
The scene was too shocking.
A mere human figure that looked like an ant directly going against of nearly fifty howling White Bone Giants
He did not even bother to dodge the attack.
He faced the white fist that looked like an ancient cauldron and Xu Xiaoshou released a punch.
The air surged, and the hot air swept through the small mound, causing it to explode.
Yu Zhiwen couldnt crouch still any longer.
She stood up in shock.
The White Bone Giant, which was dozens of feet tall, had paused for half a breath after Xu Xiaoshous punch.
In the next instant, with a whoosh, it was sent flying into the air.
On the other hand, Xu Xiaoshou..
Didnt move at all!
Yu Zhiwens pupils constricted.
She knew that Xu Xiaoshou was very strong, but wasnt this punch a little too unreasonable
Such a huge White Bone Giant had such high bone density.
Just its weight alone was enough to crush an ordinary Innate to death!
Xu Xiaoshou, with one punch…
It was sent flying
“This is the Master Physique”
“Is the Master Physique that strong”
While her mind was in a daze, the battle below did not stop.
Xu Xiaoshou sent the White Bone Giant flying with a single punch.
Relying on hisToughness andRecoil, he did not even budge for half a step.
However, the intense vibration that came from his body that he had not felt for a long time made his blood race.
“This is a battle that a real man should have!”
His hot blood back-flowed, and Xu Xiaoshou became excited.
Facing the giant hammer that was coming from the left and the giant axe that was coming from the right, he abruptly raised his palms.
A loud sound that sounded like a clash between weapons rang out.
Xu Xiaoshou actually blocked the giant hammer and axe with his bare fists.
His gaze instantly froze.
The bone hammer and the bone axe seemed to be more than just weapons that the White Skeletons were holding.
On the contrary, Xu Xiaoshou could see from hisPerception that these things were not separated from the White Skeletons bodies!
The weapons were connected to the bodies, but the energy contained in them was many times higher than the energy contained in the bodies.
Obviously, most of the energy in the bodies of these White Skeletons was used to nurture their weapons.
Xu Xiaoshou was shocked.
He dodged the next few attacks and moved to the top of the head of the White Skeleton with the heavy hammer.
The White Bone Giant raised its head and roared, as if it wanted to shake Xu Xiaoshou off.
Xu Xiaoshou was disappointed to find that this guy was still a bit rational and would not smash its own head with the hammer.
Since that was the case..
He raised his fist and punched downwards.
The air currents that swept across not only scared Yu Zhiwen silly, but even the group of White Bone Giants stopped moving.
The armor-like white bone skull exploded into pieces after one punch.
Pieces of white flew out.
Some even shot into the cracks on the other White Bone Giants bodies, such as their eye sockets and ribs..
“In awe, Passive Points 1.”
Xu Xiaoshou was shocked.
He thought that it was the bone giant who had sent out the notification.
That would be simply too good.
However, when he looked back, he saw Yu Zhiwens lifeless eyes.
The girls eyeballs were about to fall out.
“So this is Xu Xiaoshou”
Yu Zhiwen was truly shocked.
Only then did she realize that he seemed to be completely different from those fellows who wanted to stand out in the past.
Xu Xiaoshou wasnt trying to stand out at all.
This was just a warm-up, right
One punch and it was sent flying
One punch and its head was gone
Who was the real White Bone Giant
Xu Xiaoshou, youre the White Skeleton, right And those fellows are your younger brothers, right
“Suspected, Passive Points 1.”
“Feared, Passive Points 1.”
