Everlasting Immortal Firmament Chapter 53
Chapter 53 - Kill
Meng Tai quickly rushed to the Hundred Years Longevity Peach Tree after taking Little Rou hostage!
"Hold right there, that's mine!"
"Stop right there!"...
The cultivators who were attacking the grand array grew ever madder, increasing the pressure on Gao Xianzhi and Chen Tianshan more and more. The two were growing tired from fighting.
The Ascendant Hall disciples who were bringing up the rear for Meng Tai blocked the crazed cultivators.
As for Gu Hai, none dared to charge at him.
The valiant general underneath Gu Hai galloped fiercely, closing in the distance in the blink of an eye.
"Meng Tai, do you want to die?" roared Gu Hai, staring at the man.
Meng Tai, on the other hand, had already arrived before the Hundred Years Longevity Peach Tree. He carefully studied it for a while, with wide eyes.
"Where are the Hundred Years Longevity Peaches? Where the hells are the Hundred Years Longevity Peaches?" Meng Tai immediately roared in anger.
The dagger placed on Little Rou's neck drew a red line.
"Boo-hoo, Benefactor, I'm sorry, Little Rou is inept, I'm sorry, Benefactor!" Little Rou sobbed, looking at the angrily rushing Gu Hai far away.
Meng Tai turned his head in anger, looking at the charging Gu Hai.
Looking at that grand and imposing manner of Gu Hai as well as the valiant general with the Fang Tian Hua halberd underneath him, Meng Tai's heart skipped a beat immediately.
Why did they stop fighting? Why is that black-robed man not fighting him?
Far away, the black-robed man was also flying over slowly. The fight between Gu Hai and the Great Wisdom King had indeed come to a halt, albeit temporarily.
Looking at the soaring and imposing demeanor of Gu Hai, Meng Tai's countenance distorted. The dagger in his hand was suddenly pushed a bit deeper into Little Rou's neck, and the blood came trickling down bit by bit thereafter.
"Meng Tai, you dare!" Gu Hai roared in anger as his eyes went wide.
"Gu Hai, don't you come closer. If you dare to take another step, I will kill her!" yelled Meng Tai.
Gu Hai's figure immediately came to an abrupt stop as he stared coldly at Meng Tai.
Meng Tai's brows twitched madly. Meng Tai also had self-propriety and didn't dare to encroach upon the Hundred Years Longevity Peach Tree. However, the ten Hundred Years Longevity Peaches were another matter, he must have them!
According to his original plan, he would pick the remaining seven Saturn Peaches after taking Little Rou hostage and immediately escape thereafter. Gu Hai wouldn't have the time to hunt him down, for sure. As long as he escaped the Xiantian Endgame World and had his cultivation restored, Gu Hai would not be able to do anything to him even with his amazing abilities.
However, there were no Hundred Years Longevity Peaches!?
"Throne Master, we can't stop them!" the nearby congregation of Ascendant Hall disciples said anxiously.
Meng Tai's expression grew worse. "Gu Hai, block them, or else, I will kill this snake demon!"
A cold look appeared on Gu Hai's face as he waved his hand.
BANG BOOM BANG!
A large number of mounted soldier charged at the surrounding cloud beasts at once.
A series of battle cries rang out as the mounted soldiers pushed the group of cloud beasts back. Gazing at their fierce momentum, Meng Tai's countenance also changed madly.
"Release Little Rou and I will let you go!" said Gu Hai coldly.
"Hahahaha!? Little Rou? This snake demon? Gu Hai, it seems you are soft-hearted! You can actually be blackmailed with this snake who you have met just recently? Since you care about her so much, how can I be willing to let her go?" A savage look immediately appeared on Meng Tai's face.
"Benefactor, I'm sorry, I'm sorry, Benefactor, boo-hoo!" Little Rou broke down in tears, aggrieved.
Little Rou was sad because she was useless and had been tricked by bad guys. Owing to her weakness, her benefactor was suffering. She was blaming herself and herself only.
"Little Rou, don't cry, it's all right, it's not your fault!" Gu Hai comforted her.
Having comforted Little Rou, Gu Hai turned his gaze towards Meng Tai once again.
"Throne Master Meng, you are also Ascendant Hall disciples, we can be considered as colleagues, right? Now, I am willing to be an enemy of this world in order to search Wei Shengren for Ascendant Hall, whereas you, planned against me instead of helping me, what are your intentions?" asked Gu Hai coldly.
While speaking, the valiant general underneath Gu Hai moved a bit forward.
"Don't move, or I will kill her now!" stated Meng Tai, his eyes opened wide.
Gu Hai narrowed his eyes as the valiant general halted its footsteps.
"Don't talk nonsense, Gu Hai. I admit you are skillful, but, you shouldn't have appeared. Humph, you care about Little Rou? Let me see how much you care about her! The Hundred Years Longevity Peaches have been picked by you, haven't they? Use those Hundred years Longevity Peaches as a ransom for Little Rou. I will spare her in exchange for Hundred Years Longevity Peaches!" stated Meng Tai in a cold tone.
"No, Benefactor, you can't! Little Rou's life isn't worth it!" Little Rou's tears came streaming down immediately as she shouted.
Gu Hai kept on staring at Meng Tai in silence for a while.
"So? You don't care about her?" asked Meng Tai coldly.
Gu Hai nodded in agreement after having taken a deep breath, "Out of ten Hundred Years Longevity Peach Trees, three had already been eaten by Little Rou, while one was eaten by me. Now, there are only six remaining!"
Six jade boxes fell on the head of the valiant general at once with a flip of Gu Hai's hand.
"Open them!" ordered Meng Tai, suppressing the excitement in his heart.
The six jade boxes opened immediately with the wave of Gu Hai's hand, lying inside each was a Saturn Peach, each shining with a golden light.
In a flash, the gazes of countless cultivators all around were attracted by those six boxes. Many cultivators could not help but swallow a mouthful of saliva.
Gu Hai closed the lid of jade boxes once again.
"That's right, hahaha, Gu Hai, I can't help but admire you, first you were willing to spend three Hundred Years Longevity Peaches for an insignificant snake demon, and now, you didn't even bat an eye and took out six Hundred Years Longevity Peaches!?" said Meng Tai, laughing coldly.
"Release Little Rou and I will give them to you!" stated Gu Hai in a heavy tone.
"Do you think I will believe that you will still give me those Saturn Peaches after I release Little Rou?" said Meng Tai dismissively.
"My, Gu Hai's promise is heavier than a thousand gold bars. Release Little Rou and I will hand all these six Saturn Peaches to you. However, if anything happens to her, I will make sure that you are all buried here!" A cold gleam flashed past Gu Hai's eyes.
Immediately, a large group of mounted soldiers appeared, pointing their respective sabers at the few dozen Ascendant Hall disciples.
Meng Tai's brows madly twitched. "Give me the golden Saturn Peaches and I will release her. Are you going to give or not?"
Gu Hai gave a cold stare at Meng Tai.
"Are you going to give or not!" Meng Tai pushed the dagger in his hand deeper into Little Rou's neck.
Gu Hai's eyebrows started twitching madly.
"I will give them to you!" Stretching his hand out, Gu Hai was just about to push those jade boxes out.
Six Ascendant Hall disciples controlled their cloud beasts as they flew to the front.
"Don't, Benefactor, don't give them to him, Benefactor, Little Rou has dragged you down, I'm sorry, Benefactor, boo-hoo!" Little Rou howled in despair.
"Don't talk nonsense!" shouted Meng Tai at Little Rou angrily.
Far away, six Ascendant Hall disciples had already arrived before Gu Hai. And Gu Hai was just about to hand the jade boxes over to them.
Gu Hai didn't even hesitate a bit in order to save Little Rou.
Whereas Little Rou, who upon watching Gu Hai willing to hand the Hundred Years Longevity Peaches so directly, also stopped crying. She looked at Gu Hai stupidly as a sad smile crept upon her lips.
"Benefactor, Little Rou's biggest fortune in this life is to have met Benefactor. Perhaps, that day, at the entrance, Little Rou should have been dead, Benefactor should not have saved Little Rou that day. Little Rou would not be able to help Benefactor in guarding the herb garden. If there is next life, Little Rou will help Benefactor look after the herb garden again, guard it for her entire life, for my entire life!" said Little Rou sadly and gently.
Far away, Gu Hai's facial feature distorted. "Little Rou, what are you doing?"
Gu Hai and Meng Tai both had their facial features distorted. But they were a step too late.
Having spoken her final words, only the Heavens knew where she got the strength to run her body into the dagger fiercely.
Immediately, the dagger in Meng Tai's hand had chopped almost half of Little Rou's neck. The dagger plunged deeper into her neck instantly, it seemed it would behead her if it was pushed even a bit deeper.
"LITTLE ROU!" roared Gu Hai, enraged.
"What? You, you, you, you!" Meng Tai screamed in horror, his eyes ballooning in fear.
How could Meng Tai ever imagine that Little Rou would actually choose to suicide at this moment? How could she commit suicide?
Cut her own neck? Having killed herself, both of Little Rou's eyes remained open.
"Meng Tai, I want to kill you!" Gu Hai immediately roared in anger.
Whereupon, the valiant general underneath him swung the Fang Tian Hua halberd, owing to which, the six cloud beasts who came to take the Hundred Years Longevity Peaches were immediately burst apart from the cut.
All six cloud beasts exploded.
AHHHH! AHHHH! AHHHH!...
The six Ascendant Hall disciples broke into blood-curdling screams as they flew away from the explosion.
The mounted soldiers all around suddenly waved their respective blades forthwith.
The six Ascendant Hall disciples exploded into pieces all at once, their blood and guts splattered in all directions.
The army in the surroundings seemed to have gone crazy as they charged at the congregation of Ascendant Hall disciples and Meng Tai.
"How did this happen? Why did this happen?" Looking at the Little Rou's body in his embrace, Meng Tai was shocked and afraid.
Why did she kill herself? Why did she commit suicide?
"Throne Master, Throne Master, please save us! What should we do?" the remaining Ascendant Hall disciples broke out with cries of fear.
All the soldiers in the surroundings went crazy as they attacked the disciples together.
A horrified look immediately painted Meng Tai's face.
"Run, run, run, quickly run!" Meng Tai charged towards the outside, while shouting in fear.
"You want to leave? Do you want to escape? Go to hell!" Gu Hai roared in anger.
"With such big strength, I can move a mountain!; With the lofty quality, I am matchless in the world!" The peerless general slashed with his halberd fiercely.
An air blade from the halberd tore through the air, charging straight at the cloud beast underneath Meng Tai.
"Block it, block it!"
Two Ascendant Hall disciples before Meng Tai attempted to block the air blade, only to be immediately cut down.
Under this strike of the halberd, the giant cloud dragon underneath Meng Tai also had its tail cut down.
"What?" Meng Tai shrieked in horror.
"GO TO HELL!" roared Gu Hai savagely.
"With such big strength, I can move a mountain; With the lofty quality, I am matchless in the world!"
Yet another halberd strike, even fiercer than before, came slashing down at Meng Tai.
Looking at that halberd strike coming straight at him, Meng Tai's countenance changed fiercely.
He immediately threw Little Rou's body towards the oncoming Fang Tian Hua halberd.
"STOP!" Gu Hai's expression flickered.
The halberd aura suddenly came to an abrupt halt, raising a storm, preventing any harm from happening to Little Rou's body.
The valiant general galloped forward, and Gu Hai caught and hugged Little Rou's body in his arms. The dagger was still buried in her neck, and her body devoid of any breath.
"Soldiers, surround Meng Tai and Ascendant Hall disciples with all you have, and KILL, KILL, KILL, KILL, KILL!" shouted Gu Hai, looking at the sky.
A mighty army immediately appeared and encircled Meng Tai and the others at once.
"Gu Hai, you dare, I am the Ascendant Hall Earth Throne Master!" Meng Tai roared out with trepidation.
"KILL!" roared Gu Hai as a grim look filled his face.
The mighty army besieged Meng Tai to kill him.
Gu Hai, on the other hand, took out a Hundred Years Longevity Peach and fed it to Little Rou.
Little Rou had already stopped breathing. Would the Hundred Years Longevity Peach still be useful? An anxious look immediately shrouded Gu Hai's face.
