Chapter 27 – Glare

Huala la la…

The rain poured down.

Zhao Kongcheng held a straight knife, his dark red cloak soaked through, and his body covered in blood, he looked extremely miserable.

But his eyes were bright like stars!

So this is the Forbidden Ruin.


Damn, it feels great!

Across from him, the Ghost-Faced King looked at his empty right arm in astonishment, his pale ghostly face twisted in shock.

It couldn’t understand why the rat it had just been tormenting could suddenly release such a powerful force.

But its intelligence was lacking, and… it didn’t have the time.

Zhao Kongcheng made his move.

Under the power of the Ghost God Pill, his body had forgotten all injuries and returned to its best condition. He was like an arrow released from a bow, shooting towards the Ghost-Faced King!


The Ghost-Faced King’s eyes turned crimson, and in its armless state, it had completely fallen into a state of frenzy!

Its muscles swelled, its entire body expanded, its legs bent, and its massive body leaped up, splashing large waves of water.

In mid-air, the two figures collided at an extremely fast speed!

Thud! Thud! Thud!!

Their movements were so fast that they became blurred. Black crescent-shaped blades flew out, leaving numerous grim knife marks on the ground!

Originally, Zhao Kongcheng’s knife couldn’t break through the Ghost-Faced King’s defense, and in terms of both strength and speed, he was at a clear disadvantage. That was the main reason why he had been beaten so badly earlier.

But now, with the power of the “Extinction Flash Moon,” Zhao Kongcheng’s killing power had reached a terrifying level. Every strike left a deep blood mark on the Ghost-Faced King’s body!

Although Zhao Kongcheng still couldn’t match the Ghost-Faced King in terms of strength and speed, after he made up for the shortcomings in his killing power, he could compensate for other weaknesses through experience.

Even though his physical fitness was far inferior to the Ghost-Faced King, he could still pin the opponent down on the ground!

The fact proved that Zhao Kongcheng was not lying.

With the Forbidden Ruin, he could kill the Ghost-Faced King eight hundred times!

If given enough time, killing the Ghost-Faced King alone would only be a matter of time… but the key was, he didn’t have that much time.

Although using the power of the Ghost God Pill could unleash a person’s full potential, its duration was not long. It had been almost ten seconds since Zhao Kongcheng unleashed the Forbidden Ruin, and he didn’t have much time left.

As Zhao Kongcheng fought fiercely with the Ghost-Faced King, he could clearly feel his own strength diminishing, and the hidden pain was gradually returning…

Even the black crescent blades he swung were getting smaller and smaller!

The Ghost-Faced King seemed to have sensed his change in state and, at the cost of consuming its own essence, launched an even more fierce attack!

After a few more rounds of fighting, the Ghost-Faced King seized the opportunity and delivered a heavy punch to Zhao Kongcheng’s chest!


A muffled sound echoed in the air, and Zhao Kongcheng, like a kite with a broken string, flew out in a sorry state and crashed heavily to the ground!

“His… why does it hurt so much…”

The sensation of pain was like surging waves, washing over every nerve in Zhao Kongcheng’s body. He gritted his teeth, his eyes bloodshot.

While coughing up blood, he slowly climbed up from the mud…

His gaze was fixed on the Ghost-Faced King, the flames still burning in his eyes.

He could still breathe, he still had the Forbidden Ruin, he could still fight!

The Ghost-Faced King was not dead yet…

He couldn’t fall!

Using his straight knife to support himself on the ground, he swayed as he stood up. Just then, a sudden change occurred!


A loud noise came from behind Zhao Kongcheng, and the sky above him trembled slightly, cracking open…

This is…

Zhao Kongcheng stared blankly at the sky, as if he had realized something, and suddenly turned around!

Not far behind him, a corner of the invisible canvas that covered the sky had already cracked open…

And in that broken crack, a young man with golden eyes slowly walked out.

Zhao Kongcheng’s mouth hung open, his expression as if he had seen a ghost!

“You, you, you… how did you get in?!”

Lin Qiye brushed aside his rain-soaked hair, his eyes burning like a furnace, hot and sacred. He sighed helplessly,

“I have to say, this No-Restrictions Zone is really tough. But luckily, I have these eyes that can find its weakest point, and luckily…

It’s nighttime now.”

Zhao Kongcheng only understood the first sentence, but it still couldn’t answer the doubts in his heart:

“You’ve just entered the ‘Lamp’ realm, how can you have such strong power? No… you don’t have any weapons, how did you break through the No-Restrictions Zone?””You might not believe it,” Lin Qiye said calmly, “I just glared at it, and it opened.”

Zhao Kongcheng: …

Lin Qiye wasn’t lying. Under the enhancement of the night, he could feel his eyes being significantly strengthened. Although it wasn’t as exaggerated as five times, it was still twice as powerful.

Before obtaining the [Starry Night Dancer], he could single-handedly kill the Ghost-faced Man with the Seraph’s Divine Might. After the enhancement of the night, he could also use Divine Might to break through the [No-Restrictions Zone].

However, this consumed too much of his Psychic Power. Just one glare almost completely drained him.

Lin Qiye glanced at the Ghost-faced King, covered in wounds, then at the knife marks all over the ground. His gaze towards Zhao Kongcheng suddenly became strange, “And you said you don’t have a Forbidden Ruin? Is this something a human could do?”

Zhao Kongcheng didn’t bother to explain, because… he really didn’t have much time left.

“Stop talking, step aside.”

“I can help you fight.”

“I know, just step aside for now.” Zhao Kongcheng turned to look at him, “One more slash, I’ll slash one more time. After this slash, it’s not too late for you to help.”

“Oh.” Lin Qiye stepped aside.

Zhao Kongcheng took a deep breath, gripping the hilt of his knife tightly, his eyes fixed on the Ghost-faced King not far away.



“Watch this slash carefully.”


“This slash… will be very cool.”


Before Lin Qiye could show a disgusted expression, Zhao Kongcheng’s legs pushed off the ground, rushing towards the Ghost-faced King with astonishing speed!

The Ghost-faced King seemed to realize that the man in front of him was at the end of his rope. Instead of choosing to fight him head-on, he stood guard in place, ready to defend against his attack at any moment.

The light in Zhao Kongcheng’s eyes was like a lit torch, growing brighter and brighter.

He broke through the curtain of rain, charging towards the Ghost-faced King,

Without any fancy moves,

He raised his hand,

And swung his knife.

An unprecedentedly huge crescent moon cut through the night sky, moving at a speed that the naked eye couldn’t catch, slicing every drop of rain in its path in half.

The speed of this slash was too fast, so fast that even the powerful Ghost-faced King couldn’t easily dodge it.

Even if it wanted to dodge, it couldn’t do so in its current state.


The black crescent moon swept across the sky,


And beheaded a ghastly head with a pale ghost face.
