The Nine Cauldrons

Book 4 Chapter 18 Kill a Way Out!!!

The Scarlet Fruit Wine in the basin bubbled, and soon, the whole gourd was filled.

Teng Qingshan immediately wiped down the exterior of the gourd before plugging in the cork and placing it in his baggage.

“These Steel Arms Monkeys are really poor. Other than the Scarlet Fruit Wine, they have nothing else. While demonic beasts have intelligence, their expectations for fun is still very low. Mmmm……Now that I’ve gotten the Scarlet Fruit, it’s time to go!” Teng Qingshan threw a glance to the surroundings before he tightened the baggage on himself, held onto the Reincarnation Spear with one hand, and quietly left the mountainside.

In the nest of the monkey group, the slaughters were very fast.

The demonic beasts that were out to snatch the Scarlet Fruit Wine, after stealing a sip, tried to make their escape. On the other hand, the Steel Arms Monkeys gathered in big groups, attempting to kill these demonic beasts. Those that dared to steal the fruit wine were quite capable themselves. Most of the demonic beasts escaped with injuries, and only two unlucky ones were surrounded and eventually torn up by the Steel Arms Monkey!

Of course, two of the Steel Arms Monkeys also died.

The world of the demonic beasts was that cruel.


“Yiaaa yiaaa!!!”

After a winning battle, the Steel Arms Monkeys all cheered excitedly. And in the forest a distance away, the Golden Eyed Monkey King and the godly eagle were also having an intense battle, and both of them very covered in wounds. With a piercing cry the godly eagle once again took flight, and this time around, the Golden Eyed Monkey King did not give chase.

“Yiaaa yiaaa!” The Monkey King stared at the soaring figure and cried out loudly.

At that moment——

At the deep cave at the peak of the mountain, a figure plastered himself to the walls, the Reincarnation Spear at his waist. His whole figure was hidden in the darkness. Using both arms and legs, he quietly plastered himself to the top of the rock walls and slowly headed for the entrance of the cave, his cold eyes constantly focusing on the two big Steel Arms Monkeys at the entrance!

“I’m really unlucky!” Teng Qingshan said to himself. “Seems like the fighting between the demonic beasts outside is almost over. To think that there are two big Steel Arms Monkeys guarding this place themselves! The fighting ended too soon.”

Teng Qingshan had originally thought that the fighting was still ongoing and he could take advantage of the chaos to make his escape.

Who would have thought……

Thee demonic beasts that had made their way in failed his expectations. Those demonic beasts were all afraid of death. Once they had a drink of the Scarlet Fruit wine, they quickly made their escape. It was not long before the lair of the monkey group quieted down.

“I hope they don’t discover me.” Teng Qingshan gradually made his way to the entrance of the cave.

Actually, with the clutch of his fingers, he could adhere to the top of the cave walls with one hand. However…….for the sake of safety, in order not to make a single sound, Teng Qingshan exerted strength with his whole body, as if his was stuck to the top of the top of the rocky walls. At that moment, he was only two Zhang away from the entrance of the cave!

Suddenly, one of the two big Steel Arms Monkeys at the entrance of the cave turned. With its claws pointing to the distance, it went ‘Yiaaa yiaaa yiaaa’, as if it was crying out something.

But with its turn, it discovered from the corner of its eyes the Teng Qingshan who was adhered to the top of the rock walls.


The Steel Arms Monkey stared hard. To think that a human had intruded to their monkey troops’ extremely important zone!

“Not good!” Teng Qingshan’s eyes turned sharp as knives. Teng Qingshan, who was originally adhered to the top of the rock walls like a spider, exerted strength with his four limbs, and dashed like a frog, as quick as lightning!

“Yiaaa!” The big Steel Arms Monkey also swiped its claws in fury.


Teng Qingshan’s clothes on his right arm bulged up, and a strong fist smash against the claws of that big Steel Arms Monkey. “Boom!” A loud sound like an explosion issued forth, and the strong pressure caused the inner strength to spread out in all directions. A spinning explosive energy of over 200,00 Jin caused the unprepared big Steel Arms Monkey to be smashed three steps back. Each step it took left a deep claw mark in the ground.
Meanwhile, Teng Qingshan borrowed the energy from the backlash to do a flip in midair!


With extreme nimbleness, he flipped a few Zhang upwards, clutched onto the rock walls, and leaped up onto a flat ground on top of the cliff.

“Yiaaa yiaaa yiaaa!!!” The two big Steel Arms Monkey cried out furiously.

“Yiaaa yiaaa yiaaa, yiaaa yiaaa yiaaa~~~”

The entire group of monkeys started to cry out. In a short instance, at least hundreds of Steel Arms Monkeys noticed that a human had leaped up to a flat surface on the cliff from their important ‘cave’, the cave where they had stored their most precious ‘Scarlet Fruit Wine’, something that was usually hard for them to even get a sip.

“Yiaaa yiaaa yiaaa!!!”

The cries filled the air as hundreds and thousands of enraged Steel Arms Monkeys dashed over from all over the place, packing the area with their large builds.

“Hu!” “Hu!” “Hu!”

A leap from a Steeled Armed Monkey reached a height of seven to eight Zhang, and soon each of them easily leaped up onto the flat surface of the cliff. They all seemed crazy as they went after Teng Qingshan with killing intent.

The face of Teng Qingshan, who was running at the speed of lightning, paled when he saw this. “This is troublesome! No other way, I can only follow the nearest path and kill my way out in one go! If I don’t escape, there’s only death!” Teng Qingshan quickly drew out the Reincarnation Spear on his back as he leaped on the cliff walls at the speed of lightning.

Teng Qingshan used ‘Crossing Worlds’ and summoned all the energy from his body.

His speed was extremely fast!

The distance between him and the normal Steel Arms Monkeys chasing behind gradually increased. But it was too bad that……there were too many Steel Arms Monkeys. There were simply many of them that had intercepted him from other directions! With interceptions from all directions, no matter what, Teng Qingshan had to fend against these obstacles.

Teng Qingshan squinted his eyes and gave an ice-cold gaze!

“Yiaaa yiaaa!”

Eight Steel Arms Monkeys lined up and dashed towards Teng Qingshan simultaneously. Each of them cried out loudly, waving their proudest Steel Arms.


The Reincarnation Spear in Teng Qingshan’s hand immediately turned into a shadow, swiping four rays of sharp sliver light like the poisonous sting of a scorpion.

“Pu!” “Pu!” “Pu!” “Pu!”

The spear figure was like a needle!

Blood splattered!

The eight Steel Arms Monkeys did not even slow down Teng Qingshan, and he passed by them just like that. Blood spewed out from the necks of four of the Steel Arms Monkeys as they fell down, lifeless. The other four living Steel Arms Monkeys cried out furiously!

Teng Qingshan’s speed did not decrease at all as he continued to dash forth!


Kill all those who obstruct him!

At that moment, time was so tight that at every blink of an eye, Teng Qingshan could have died if he were one blink slower.

“Yiaaa yiaaa yiaaa yiaaa~~~” Seeing that four Steel Arms Monkeys had died, all the other Steel Arms Monkeys cried out, but more of them came crowding from all over.

Initially, when the Golden Eyed Monkey King returned to the monkeys’ lair after its battle with the godly eagle, it had merely watched from the sides as its subordinates went after to kill the man. But Teng Qingshan’s powerful and sharp spear had enraged it. It raised its head and cried out loudly, “Yiaaa!!!” Immediately, it tapped its legs.

Rumble! The rocky ground cracked.


The Golden Eyed Monkey King turned into a ray of silver light and leaped out a distance of over tens of Zhang. When it landed again, it tapped fiercely on the ground and progressed another tens of Zhang!

“Not good.” Teng Qingshan paled upon seeing this. “This Monkey King’s speed is at least two times my own. If I were to take the route I planned, I wouldn’t be able to make it.” As Teng Qingshan was running, he concurrently scanned the surroundings and fixed his gaze somewhere far off in the southern direction. “There’s no other way out, I can only do this!”

Teng Qingshan fiercely turned and dashed southward.

“Yiaaa yiaaa~~” Another eleven Steel Arms Monkeys gathered over with killing intention. There was even a big Steel Arms Monkey in front of them!

“My Reincarnation can kill normal Steel Arms Monkeys with one pierce, but I wouldn’t be able to kill this big Steel Arms Monkey with one thrust.” Teng Qingshan had a short encounter with a big Steel Arms Monkey earlier and could tell that this big Steel Arms Monkey can definitely match up to the abilities of that ‘Ghostly Fox’ Sima Qing. The moment Teng Qingshan was dashing in front——

A bright light flashed past from his left arm!


The cold gleaming light slashed across the air and shot towards the big Steel Arms Monkey’s neck.

“Yiaaa~” The big Steel Arms Monkey immediately clawed towards the cool light that was sent flying. But when it was about six Chi distance away, the cool light suddenly curved, passed by its sharp claws, and thrusted towards its face.


The flying knife pierced through the big Steel Arms Monkey’s skull! Splatters of red and white flew all over!

“Yiaaa yiaaa!” When the running Golden Eyed Monkey King saw this, it was further infuriated. There were many normal Steel Arms Monkeys, so it was fine even if they had died. But the big Steel Arms Monkeys were his left and right arms! The infuriated Monkey King moved at an astonishing speed, each step causing rocks to crumble.

The Steel Arms Monkeys were very clever!

Previously, they had seen Teng Qingshan kill four Steel Arms Monkeys at once. Because of this, the eleven Steel Arms Monkeys split up to form three rows. There were four in the first row, three in the second, and four in the third. They pounced towards Teng Qingshan interchangeably. Even if Teng Qingshan killed three or four of them, he would not be able to charge pass the obstacle.

“They are intelligent. This has grown even more troublesome.”

Teng Qingshan did not slow down at all, charging like a tank that was increasingly its speed crazily as he dashed forth.


With a tap on the ground, Teng Qingshan leaped up.

“Hu!” “Hu!” “Hu!”

The eleven Steel Arms Monkeys leaped up at almost the same time, pouncing towards Teng Qingshan!

“Their formation is broken!” With a cold glance, the Reincarnation Spear in Teng Qingshan’s hands consecutively thrusted three times as if it were a venomous snake, killing three Steel Arms Monkeys. Thereafter, it turned into a curve——Transmutation Unity Law Spear Art!

The only defensive spear art in the Five Element Spear Art!


Three Steel Arms Monkeys plunged down from midair, while the other eight Steel Arms Monkeys were knocked off their tracks.

“These monkeys are really strong.” Teng Qingshan’s sleeves were torn, and a claw mark appeared on his arm, but it was merely torn skin. ‘Transmutation Unity Law’ Spear Art was not one with absolute defence. If the surrounding enemies were all very strong, once the speed of the Reincarnation Spear was affected, the defensive powers of the spear would no longer be perfect.

Like a flash of lightning——

Breaking through the obstacles of a big Steel Arms Monkey and eleven normal Steel Arms Monkeys, Teng Qingshan dashed directly to southwards.

“Yiaaa!” The infuriated Monkey King caught up, its eyes gleaming with a gold light, making it seem extremely brutal.


With a leap, it pounced over.

Teng Qingshan, who had dashed at extreme speed, suddenly turned and waved his arm——a ray of cold light cut across the sky!

A golden light flashed across the air!

“Boom!” The Monkey King’s right claw crumbled the flying knife. However, that flying blade had contained an immense energy of over 200,000 Jin. Since Monkey King had received the impact when it had leaped and was in midair, it uncontrollably fell backwards.

“To think that the speed of the Monkey King’s sharp claws could match up with the turning of my flying knife.” Teng Qingshan exclaimed to himself. “This Monkey King is much stronger than me, and is probably comparable to the innate Golden Dan experts.” Facing such a terrifying demonic beast, Teng Qingshan was even more affirmative of his decision.

Once it caught up, he would definitely die!

“Yiaaa!” The Monkey King, which had landed due to the backlash, immediately dashed forth.


During the short moment the Monkey King was delayed, Teng Qingshan had dashed to the southern end of the Steel Arms Monkey Mountain——at the the hanging cliff! And at the bottom of the cliff was white fog. It was an unfathomable depth!

With no hesitation!


Holding onto the Reincarnation Spear, Teng Qingshan leaped downwards.

“Yiaaa!” The Monkey King stood at the cliff, unusually enraged as it grabbed two boulders and hurled them towards the Teng Qingshan who had leaped down.

“Rumble!” “Rumble!”

Falling in midair, Teng Qingshan could not dodge the boulders!
