Chapter 28 – Chop chop chop

Gulu lu lu.

The head of the Ghost Face King fell to the ground.

Zhao Kongcheng’s body swayed and fell straight down.

Lin Qiye’s eyes were quick and his hands were fast. He steadily caught Zhao Kongcheng’s body. It was only at this moment that he realized how bad Zhao Kongcheng’s condition was.

Scratches, bruises, and fractures… In Lin Qiye’s spiritual perception, his body was covered in dense wounds, and fresh blood flowed out, staining the rain-soaked mud under him. At least five or six bones were broken in his body. Lin Qiye couldn’t imagine how Zhao Kongcheng managed to stand up with such serious injuries.

The most critical thing was that Lin Qiye could clearly sense that Zhao Kongcheng’s physical condition was rapidly deteriorating. His vitality was like a dying ember, becoming weaker and weaker…

Lin Qiye sat beside Zhao Kongcheng in a daze, “Your body…”

“Cough, it’s nothing, just the aftermath of forcibly unleashing my potential.”

“If this continues, you will die.”

“I know.”

“Is it okay to die?”

“Hehehe…” Zhao Kongcheng wanted to laugh, but halfway through, he coughed up blood again. “It’s worth it. At least I experienced the Forbidden Ruin before I die, and…”

“And what?”

“And I did it. I challenged the abyss and dyed the sky with blood.” Zhao Kongcheng tremblingly reached out and touched the muddy ground beneath him, feeling a handful of blood. “With this amount of bleeding, even if I can’t dye the sky, dyeing a large area of land should be no problem.”

Lin Qiye was stunned, “But there are not many people behind you. Besides me, no one saw your efforts. Is it worth it?”

Zhao Kongcheng smiled and didn’t answer.

“Help me with something.”

“What is it?”

“There are cigarettes in my pocket. Light one for me.”

Lin Qiye searched in Zhao Kongcheng’s chest pocket for a while and took out a cigarette soaked in rainwater. He also took out a lighter from his pants pocket.

He handed the cigarette to Zhao Kongcheng and protected the lighter with his hand to prevent it from getting wet by the rain. He pressed it a few times.

Click, click… click!

A flame ignited and lit the cigarette in Zhao Kongcheng’s mouth.

He took a deep drag and exhaled, as if his whole person had become relaxed.

Zhao Kongcheng held the cigarette, his eyes staring at the gray sky, rain falling on his face and sliding down his cheeks…

“Lin Qiye.”


“I cut off the head of the Ghost Face King. Did you see it?”

“I saw it.”

A slight smile appeared at the corner of Zhao Kongcheng’s mouth, he was very happy.

Lin Qiye nodded and was about to say something when suddenly, his body trembled slightly.

He turned his head stiffly and saw a burly headless corpse slowly crawling out of the muddy distance…

On its body, a pale and eerie ghost face crawled like a parasite, quickly crawling from its legs to its back, and from its back to its chest…

Finally, it grew on the chest of the Ghost Face King.

And on the severed head beside it, the pale ghost face had disappeared without a trace.

Lin Qiye’s pupils suddenly contracted!

The Ghost Face King… is not dead yet.

The rain continued to fall.

Zhao Kongcheng looked at the sky, still reminiscing about the scene just now, and did not notice the change in Lin Qiye’s expression.

“That damn guy who couldn’t be killed even by the captain, was killed by me… Lin Qiye, do you think I’m awesome?”

Lin Qiye remained silent for a moment, looked down at Zhao Kongcheng in his arms, and nodded heavily.

“Yeah, you’re awesome!”

“With such great achievements, if I can survive, I will definitely become a general, right?”

“You definitely can.” Lin Qiye’s eyes were full of certainty. “You must survive!”


Zhao Kongcheng seemed to have imagined something, his face filled with satisfaction.

But the light in his eyes was gradually extinguishing.

Lin Qiye’s hands trembled slightly. He shook Zhao Kongcheng’s body and said in a low voice, “Zhao Kongcheng! You haven’t become a general yet, you can’t die!”

Zhao Kongcheng seemed to no longer hear Lin Qiye’s voice. His eyes gradually became unfocused… He opened his mouth, and his voice sounded like a mosquito:

“I… was I handsome just now?”

“Handsome!” Lin Qiye’s lips trembled, and he nodded firmly. “Very handsome! Handsomer than anyone I’ve ever seen!”

A faint smile appeared at the corner of Zhao Kongcheng’s mouth. He closed his eyes slowly, and his body relaxed.

Zhao Kongcheng, died.


Lin Qiye sat there in a daze, rain blurring his eyes, but his gaze still did not move away from Zhao Kongcheng.

Until… the heavy footsteps sounded again.

Lin Qiye clenched his teeth, took a deep breath, and slowly stood up from the ground…

He turned around, his gaze falling on the headless body of the Ghost Face King in the distance. There seemed to be a blazing sun burning fiercely in his eyes!

He took two steps forward,

Pulled out the straight sword stuck in the ground!

It was Zhao Kongcheng’s sword.

Lin Qiye held the sword and walked step by step towards the Ghost Face King. The rain soaked him, but it couldn’t extinguish the anger in his heart!

And those burning golden pupils!

The ghost face on the corpse of the Ghost Face King twisted, as if silently roaring. Its footsteps became faster and faster, and in the end, it was like a staggering giant beast, charging towards Lin Qiye!

With its right arm severed by Zhao Kongcheng, the headless Ghost Face King could only rely on the claws of its left hand to launch a storm-like attack!

Lin Qiye held the sword and always seemed to predict its attack trajectory in advance, then swiftly dodged like lightning to avoid the attack.

He was like a midnight butterfly, swaying in the cold wind, but always avoiding any harm.The terrifying dynamic vision combined with the speed boost from the Starry Night Dancer made Lin Qiye seem like a ghost at this moment.

Lin Qiye dodged the attacks of the Ghost Face King more than ten times in a row, his face expressionless as he raised his hand and swung his knife fiercely!

This time, his target was not any vital part of the body, but the pale ghost face that resided in the chest of the Ghost Face King!

If he wasn’t mistaken, this ghost face was the true form of the Ghost Face King.

Previously, although Zhao Kongcheng had beheaded the Ghost Face King, he had not injured this ghost face, so the Ghost Face King could still resurrect!

Lin Qiye’s body danced in the gaps of the Ghost Face King’s attacks, his straight knife swinging continuously, slashing again and again on that ghost face.

Although he had a five-fold strength boost, he still couldn’t inflict substantial damage on the Ghost Face King, only leaving a shallow blood mark.

But that didn’t matter.

If one slash couldn’t kill, then slash ten times, a hundred times!

This time… he was going to slash the Ghost Face King until his soul was scattered!

One slash, two slashes, three slashes…

The Ghost Face King couldn’t touch Lin Qiye, but Lin Qiye could slash the Ghost Face King. Gradually, more and more wounds appeared on the ghost face on the Ghost Face King’s chest, becoming bloodier and more painful!

Soon, the Ghost Face King’s offensive slowed down.

A murderous intent flashed in Lin Qiye’s eyes. Seizing the opportunity, he reversed his grip on the straight knife!

With all his strength, he stabbed it into the ghost face!

A shrill and piercing howl echoed through the sky!
