Chapter 25 – Ghost Face Earth

The moment this ghostly face appeared, Zhao Kongcheng felt as if the world had turned upside down, and an unprecedented dizziness surged to his head.

He furrowed his brows tightly and strained his body to barely stabilize himself.

In his field of vision, everything in front of him seemed like a spinning kaleidoscope, chaotic and scattered, with no trace to be found.

“Oh no… It can still use the Forbidden Ruin. I’m done for…” Zhao Kongcheng muttered to himself, recalling what Wu Xiangnan had said before the battle.

“…Forbidden Ruin Sequence 176, [Ghost Face Earth]. Within the range of the Forbidden Ruin, it can deceive the perception of all creatures with a lower or equal Boundary to itself, and reverse the concept of space.

In the Ghost Face Earth, up, down, left, and right will change with the will of the Ghost Face King at any time. Although it can be resisted to some extent by one’s own consciousness and experience, there is no doubt that all of one’s attack methods will be affected within this Forbidden Ruin, greatly reducing their combat power.

Therefore, except for the captain who is also at the ‘Chuan’ Boundary, none of the other members can fight the Ghost Face King head-on, otherwise it will only be a dead end…”

Indeed, it was an extremely disgusting Forbidden Ruin… Zhao Kongcheng, as someone who had experienced it firsthand, truly understood the abnormality of this Forbidden Ruin.

So, the captain managed to severely injure the Ghost Face King within this Forbidden Ruin?

He’s also a lunatic!

Zhao Kongcheng took a deep breath and slowly closed his eyes.


A roar came from all directions, and the earth trembled slightly. Zhao Kongcheng could feel that the Ghost Face King was rapidly approaching!

Where would it come from?

In reality.

On that eerie and ferocious ghostly face, Zhao Kongcheng stood there with his eyes closed, like a dignified sculpture, gripping his knife with both hands and aiming it forward, his brows furrowed.

He didn’t notice at all that the Ghost Face King had silently moved behind him.

In Zhao Kongcheng’s perception, whether it was visual, auditory, olfactory, or tactile, they were all rapidly changing, as if he had been thrown into a powerful washing machine, filled with incorrect information that made it impossible for him to distinguish everything in the real world.

The Ghost Face King stared at Zhao Kongcheng, who was completely unaware, with its pale and bloodthirsty smile.

It slightly leaned forward, then, like a giant projectile, broke through the rain curtain, its figure so fast that it left afterimages, and its sharp claws drew several cold glimmers as they slashed towards Zhao Kongcheng’s neck!

It seemed to have already anticipated the scene of warm blood gushing out and covering its body.

But just as its claws were about to touch Zhao Kongcheng’s body, a sudden change occurred!

As if Zhao Kongcheng’s back had grown eyes, he swiftly moved aside, narrowly avoiding the Ghost Face King’s attack!

Immediately after, the straight knife in his hand drew a long arc in the rain, aiming directly for the Ghost Face King’s head!


A sharp collision sound rang out as the Ghost Face King tightly gripped Zhao Kongcheng’s blade, then kicked him, sending him flying like a sandbag!

But even so, it couldn’t hide the astonishment in its eyes.

It couldn’t understand how Zhao Kongcheng had sensed its attack.

Zhao Kongcheng heavily fell to the ground, groaning in pain, but struggled to get up, unable to control the upward curve of his mouth.

“Surprised, aren’t you? Unexpected, right?”

Supporting himself with the straight knife, Zhao Kongcheng smiled, his smile full of mockery.

“This Forbidden Ruin of yours is indeed abnormal. If it were any other time, I would have fallen for your tricks and died by your hands. But…”

Zhao Kongcheng extended a finger and pointed to the sky. “It’s raining today.”

“You can deceive the perception of living beings, but you can’t stop the rain falling due to gravity. The rain falling on my skin surface gives me a sense of touch.

You can manipulate my sense of touch, making me feel like the rain is falling on me from all directions… And I can use this to deduce the true direction!

As long as I know one standard direction, the rest becomes much simpler.”

Zhao Kongcheng chuckled, spat out a mouthful of blood, and arrogantly raised the straight knife in his hand, pointing the blade at the Ghost Face King.

“I’m not bragging, but if I had a Forbidden Ruin too, you would have died a hundred times over!”


The Ghost Face King was successfully provoked by Zhao Kongcheng and crazily rushed towards him. Zhao Kongcheng continued to keep his eyes closed, predicting the direction of the Ghost Face King’s arrival.

Ding ding ding ding!

Zhao Kongcheng fought against the Ghost Face King, relying on his terrifying combat intuition and experience, and managed to exchange blows with it!

But it was only limited to this.

Under the Ghost Face King’s full attack, Zhao Kongcheng, as a mere mortal, soon couldn’t hold on any longer. It took the opportunity to strike his chest, shattering two ribs, and sent him flying.

This time, it took Zhao Kongcheng a full five seconds to barely stand up.

If it weren’t for the straight knife partially blocking the damage, this blow would have been enough to take his life.

“Cough cough cough…” He coughed up several mouthfuls of blood in succession, his face extremely pale.

The figure of the Ghost Face King stood tall in the rain, its gaze icy, gradually approaching him…Just then, a voice suddenly came from behind Zhao Kongcheng!

“Zhao Kongcheng! Zhao Kongcheng!!

——Zhao Kongcheng!!!”

Zhao Kongcheng was taken aback, he vaguely felt… this voice seemed somewhat familiar.

Wait, isn’t this…

He opened his mouth, as if he wanted to say something, but after hesitating for a moment, he chose to remain silent.

His gaze was full of complexity.

At this moment, outside the No-Restrictions Zone.

Lin Qiye stood near the open space, his hair wet from the rain. He seemed oblivious, shouting at the top of his lungs:

“Zhao Kongcheng! Stop hiding! I know you’re around here!”

After Lin Qiye finished shouting, he quieted down and listened for a while, but apart from the noisy rain, there was nothing else.

“Damn it, that bat clearly saw a cloaked man and a monster suddenly disappear here, how could there be nothing… Did I really see it wrong?”

Lin Qiye frowned, looking around.

Suddenly, his gaze focused.

He saw three strange signposts standing alone about ten meters away from him.

Lin Qiye walked up, wiped the rain off the signpost with his hand, and softly read the words on it.

“No entry ahead? When was this sign put up here? And… this arrangement is a bit strange.”

Lin Qiye lowered his head in thought, suddenly, it seemed like he remembered something, his eyes gradually lighting up.

“He did mention that his Forbidden Ruin is an auxiliary Forbidden Ruin that hides the battlefield, called something like… the No-Restrictions Zone?”

Lin Qiye carefully examined the three signposts in front of him, a smile appeared at the corner of his mouth, and he shouted again:

“Zhao Kongcheng! I know you’re in the No-Restrictions Zone! Open the door and let me in!!”

One second, two seconds…

Zhao Kongcheng’s voice came faintly from behind the signpost:

“You’re not eating dinner in the middle of the night, but running around for what! Get lost for me!!”
