Chapter 299: Ruler Armament
The other woman stared coldly at Jian Chen. Then, in a split second, her pupils suddenly dilated as her face underwent a change. With shock, she looked at Jian Chen’s face closely before giving off an enraged aura, “So it’s you! You’re that smelly rogue!”
This yellow clothed girl was the very same girl Jian Chen had accidentally stumbled upon when Jian Chen was bathing in the same river outside Wake City.
Seeing how Jian Chen had recognized her, the girl immediately felt the memories coming back to her. Feeling intense shame, the women felt an indescribable amount of hatred burst in her heart. With an angry shout, she charged at Jian Chen.
Up until that year, the girl had never been peeped on when bathing by a man before. So that had been a bitter event where every moment of her life, she had always thought about finding the man who dared look at her body and punish him. However, after departing from Wake City, she had never found Jian Chen’s footsteps which caused her feelings of hatred to slowly leak away. Today however, when she found him again, her heart had instantly burst with anger beyond reason.
Jian Chen looked at her with a serious face. The girl’s first strike had caused him to feel awe, but he had not been discouraged; instead, his fighting spirit had been roused to the maximum.
As the two exchanged blows, the girl suddenly realized something new. Right now, Jian Chen’s strength was vastly different than what it was like before.
“An Earth Saint Master, you’ve made a breakthrough to that realm? Just how? In the past, your strength was far inferior to mine and you still couldn’t be a match for me. It has only been a few years, just how did you make such a large leap in strength for you to be able to be my opponent?” The girl cried out in shock. She looked at the handsome face of Jian Chen, unable to take the news realistically. Despite the shock, she continued to fight Jian Chen with her blue colored sword that continued to fire off water Saint Force as she fought.
“Miss, that accident back then was a misunderstanding. Even if we continue fighting, the outcome is not clear. Why don’t we stop fighting?” Despite it happening a long time ago, Jian Chen still felt that he was in the wrong. The person was a woman after all, and he had accidentally saw her most private spots. This to him, made him very apologetic.
“You bastard, don’t you even think about it! This miss will definitely teach you a lesson!” Hearing Jian Chen mention that forbidden event, the girl howled in anger. Leaping back, she withdrew the golden longbow on her back and immediately aimed the bow at him.
Straight after the longbow had been pulled back, a single arrow made of pure energy began to form. The entire shaft began to emit a large rippling force of energy as soon as it fully condensed.
Jian Chen became startled at the sight. His mind instantly made the connection that it was this longbow that had been responsible for the first strike. Without a single bit of hesitation, he immediately leaped behind the peak he had been on.
At that moment, the lady had already released the string and sent the energy arrow flying. The arrow immediately flew at high speed toward the peak Jian Chen was hiding behind.
Following an ear deafening sound, the 300 meter tall peak immediately toppled down in a cascade of rocks.
Jian Chen’s ash covered body flew out of the rubble with amazement. The longbow in the girl’s possession was far too strong! He didn’t know what type of weapon it was, but it was able to release the same amount of power from an Earth Saint Master as an Advanced Tier Magical Crystal Cannon could!
Just as Jian Chen landed on the ground, the girl came at him with an arrow already flying straight at him once more.
Startled, Jian Chen immediately threw himself to the side as another golden arrow flew through where Jian Chen was once standing at.
Another mountain peak crumbled from the strike due to the overpowering might of the golden longbow. Every arrow was capable of destroying a mountain peak and could even bring an Earth Saint Master to a standstill. The longbow might have been able to strike against a Heaven Saint Master!
Jian Chen’s figure continued to flicker away from sight as he dodged the girl’s arrows. Although the arrows were traveling at an extremely fast speed, Jian Chen himself wasn’t all that slow. He was always able to dodge at the last moment so that the closest arrow hadn’t even nicked him, thus escaping danger.
After a while, Jian Chen began to lose strength. He didn’t dare take on another arrow now since each arrow was capable of causing a tremendous amount of damage.
“Bastard, if you’re a man, don’t even think about running away!” Releasing another barrage of twenty arrows, the girl cried out in anger.
“I don’t wish to stand around to be your live shooting target, I’m just not that foolish.” Jian Chen spoke.
“You…” The woman immediately felt her cheeks redden in anger. Even with the anger she felt toward Jian Chen, she couldn’t help but feel conflicted. In the past, she had desperately wished to turn the one who looked at her naked body into mincemeat, but now, she realized that the scoundrel that had seen and touched her had inexplicably grew to the same level as her. Despite that huge jump however, she still couldn’t accept him as someone respectable.
“Hahahaha, Luan Er, it’s a good thing that you made such a ruckus here or else I never would have been able to find you. You’ve made me suffer quite a bit.” Suddenly, five men came out of nowhere and landed nearby.
Upon hearing them, the girl’s face suddenly grew dark. Immediately halting her attack on Jian Chen, she leaped back and began to shoot her longbow at the five newcomers with no hesitation.
“Whoosh!” The golden arrows flew through the air with a whistling sound as they traveled toward the men.
The men dropped down from the peak they were standing on as the golden arrow flew toward them. Just as an arrow was about to make contact, a transparent barrier appeared and covered them all.
The powerful golden arrow made contact with the barrier, trembling for a moment, but it successfully blocked the arrow, protecting the men inside.
“Luan Er, don’t waste your energy. Your Ruler Armament can’t hurt me.” One of the youths from the group laughed. His age wasn’t all that old and looked to be around Ming Dong’s age near 27 or 28.
“Ruler’s Armament? Could that longbow be a Ruler’s Armament?” Jian Chen was filled with confusion. A Ruler Armament was something he was unfamiliar with since this was the first time he had heard of it.
“Miss Luan Er, you should hand over your Ruler Armament. There is no one around to protect you and I see no way for you to escape our grasp.” The youth laughed with a casual smile.
The girl’s face seemed to have frozen over as she looked at the five with a furious look, “Wanting my Ruler Armament is wishful thinking! Wait until we make it out, uncle Feng and uncle Yun will definitely avenge this!”
“Haha, Luan Er, don’t even think about the two old men. They will be dealt with as well.” The five men were quickly approaching with the youth still laughing.
Hearing this, the yellow robed girl glared as she shot another three arrows. “So your Shi family has been conspiring for our Huang family’s Ruler Armament.
“The Ruler Armament is something our Shi Family wants. Hand it over obediently and don’t waste your energy.”
With that, there was less than a kilometer dividing the two.
During their approach, the girl continued to fire off shots one after another at the men. Their barrier continued to shake and tremble under the barrage, but the energy shock waves from the blasts continued to hit the surrounding ground and shock the eardrums of everyone there.
Jian Chen looked on at the longbow in mute silence. The girl was shooting arrows at an incredibly strong rate with an equally strong amount of force but they were unfortunately too weak to break the barrier.
There was not a single amount of damage on any of the five, but now they couldn’t move forward either with the increasing amount of arrows coming at them.
“Luan Er, don’t bother yourself. Using the Ruler Armament uses a large amount of Saint Force. You can’t keep this up for long, the moment your Saint Force is gone, then your fate is in our hands.” The youth holding up the barrier laughed evilly as he stared at the girl with obscene eyes.
The lady continued to shoot arrow after arrow at them. With each shot, the sounds reverberated throughout the mountain range.
The shots were extremely loud and had attracted many men. Every man proceeded to cautiously hide in faraway places, watching from afar
Within the barrier, the four men behind the barrier inched toward the sides. In an instant, they charged from the barrier toward the girl from every direction.
Immediately reassigning her target, the girl shot a single arrow that flew at one of the men with a golden light. Following an explosive bang, the man flew away with blood coming out from his mouth.
Following the violent twang of the bowstring, another arrow was shot forth and pierced through the chest of another. A hole the size of a small fist could be seen after the arrow flew through and had completely obliterated the organs within his body.
Even as the girl killed two of the four in a short amount of time, the other two men had already traveled to the side where the girl was. In an instant, their Saint Weapons appeared in their hands as they slashed down at her.
The longbow was useless in close range so the girl put away her longbow on her back and pulled out her blue sword once more to fight with the two men.
“Luan Er, who’s going to save you now?” At that moment, the youth that had been maintaining the barrier immediately charged forth with a bright red spear ready to strike.
While the youth wasn’t that old, he along with the other two men were all Earth Saint Masters. With the fight being one versus three, she had quickly lost any advantages she had. Adding onto the other side’s battle experience, she couldn’t do anything but be slowly forced back.
