Chapter 9 – Half cane

"It's so bright!"


"What is that?!"


"Is there a fire somewhere?"


"How is that possible? A fire wouldn't be this bright! And we don't have such tall buildings in Cangnan City!"


"Hurry, take a picture and post it on Moments!"




This towering pillar of light was too dazzling, catching the attention of half of Cangnan City's population. Pedestrians stopped in their tracks, excitedly speculating about the reason for its appearance.


Some said it was an explosion, others said it was an optical experiment, and some said it was a divine miracle… But only a few people knew what the appearance of this pillar of light meant.


Two minutes ago, in the old city district.


On the deserted streets, ripples of space gently swayed, as if someone had lifted a corner of the canvas that covered the old city district. Then, five figures wearing black and red cloaks emerged.


One of them looked around, took a step forward, and picked up the "No Entry" sign on the ground, closing it.


As soon as the sign was put away, the silent old city district shattered like a silent bubble, revealing the true interior of the district.


The old streets were soaked in blood, and scattered grotesque limbs were strewn everywhere. If Lin Qiye saw this scene, he would have realized that the dismembered pieces on the ground were the grotesque monsters he was facing!


There were at least thirty-four of them!


"No-Restrictions Zone retrieval complete," the person holding the sign said calmly. "We can call in the logistics team to clean up the battlefield."


"What about Old Zhao?"


"He went after the two escaped grotesque monsters."


"…It was our negligence," the injured woman said, covering her right shoulder, looking somewhat dejected.


"Don't say that, Hong Ying. No one could have known that there was a Grotesque King among these grotesque monsters," the man next to her comforted.


"The captain should be fine facing the Grotesque King alone, right?"


"Of course, the captain is a strong cultivator at the Third Realm 'River ' Realm. He won't be in danger," the man paused. "I just hope… those two escaped grotesque monsters won't cause harm to ordinary people…"


As soon as he finished speaking, a pillar of blazing light shot up from another direction, illuminating half of the sky!


The five of them turned their heads simultaneously, their eyes filled with shock!


"That is…"


"A Forbidden Ruin has appeared. The energy fluctuations… are incredibly strong!"


"This, this is at least a cultivator at the Fifth Realm 'Immeasurable' Realm, no, it might even be at the Sixth Realm 'Klein' Realm… How could such a powerful cultivator be attracted to the small Cangnan City?"


"No, this doesn't seem like a human Forbidden Ruin," the man furrowed his brows.


Hong Ying paused for a moment, then seemed to have realized something. "Are you saying…"


"This seems like a Deity's Forbidden Ruin, in other words… Divine Ruin."


Upon hearing the word "Deity," the gazes of the few people froze.


"Which Deity?"


"Burning, sacred, powerful, and with this aura of creation… If I'm not mistaken, this should be…" The man stared fixedly at the gradually dissipating pillar of light and spoke slowly:


"Deity with the codename 003, the Seraph, Michael."



Lin Qiye felt uncomfortable.


In the center of this golden pillar of light, his body had completely lost control and was eerily suspended in mid-air, endless energy gushing out from his eyes.


Lin Qiye felt as if he had returned to ten years ago, seeing those eyes again across the vast universe.


That supremely divine aura was still fresh in his memory.


The difference was that ten years ago, this aura came from the moon, but now it came from… his own eyes.


The aura of the Seraph and Divine Might surged crazily from his eyes, his pupils were like two burning suns, as if they could turn everything into nothingness.


Ten years ago, the Seraph Michael exchanged a glance with him from the moon.


Ten years later, Lin Qiye opened his eyes, and the remaining power of the Seraph in his eyes erupted completely!


Fortunately, the remaining power of the Seraph in Lin Qiye's eyes was not much. After the pillar of light lasted for seven or eight seconds, it gradually dissipated, and Lin Qiye's body fell from mid-air, staggering to stabilize himself.


The brilliant golden light in his eyes gradually dimmed, leaving only a faint golden halo.


If the previous brightness was equivalent to the sun, then the current brightness was only that of a candle flame.


Although the burst of golden radiance was extremely powerful, it didn't belong to him after all. But now, the faint golden halo in Lin Qiye's eyes was truly under his control.


A faint trace of the Seraph's power.


Lin Qiye took a deep breath and slowly raised his head.


In the pitch-black night sky, the old streets, the grotesque monsters, and the blood-soaked ground… When this far from beautiful picture unfolded before Lin Qiye's eyes, he smiled.


He smiled happily.


After ten years, he finally saw this world again with his own eyes.


At this moment, in Lin Qiye's eyes, those grotesque monsters covered in blood seemed somewhat cute.


As soon as the Seraph's Divine Might erupted from Lin Qiye's eyes, these two monsters were firmly pressed to the ground by the Divine Might, almost being crushed into meat patties.


Only after the golden pillar of light disappeared did they regain their senses. They looked around in confusion, then continued to stare at Lin Qiye.


A bloodthirsty desire emerged in their eyes once again.




One of the monsters let out a strange cry and pounced towards Lin Qiye!


Compared to before, Lin Qiye was obviously much calmer now. In the instant the monster made a move, he had already judged its trajectory in his mind and forcefully dodged to the side.


Lin Qiye's speed was indeed slow compared to the monster, but his reaction speed was astonishingly fast. The few seconds he predicted in advance were enough to buy him time to dodge.


It wasn't that he could predict the future, but after opening his eyes, his perception ability had undergone a tremendous change.One was the range of his spiritual perception, which expanded from ten meters to twenty. It should be known that it took Lin Qiye five years to achieve a ten-meter range, and now it had directly doubled.


The other was dynamic vision.


Within this twenty-meter range, Lin Qiye possessed a dynamic vision that was nearly three times that of an ordinary person. His reflexes were freakishly fast, almost prophetic in close combat.


As for the other abilities these eyes brought him, Lin Qiye hadn't felt them yet.


But under the current circumstances, he didn't have the luxury of time to slowly explore.


The monster, like an arrow off its string, pounced past where Lin Qiye had just stood, collapsing a large chunk of the wall. It pushed off the rubble with its limbs and shot towards Lin Qiye again!


At this moment, Lin Qiye had already rolled away from the monster's landing spot, reached out, and grabbed the half of the guide cane that had fallen to the ground!


Lin Qiye quickly got up, crouched down, his eyes fixed on the rapidly approaching monster, both hands gripping the guide cane tightly!


The monster left a trail of afterimages, the wind it stirred up blowing Lin Qiye's black hair on his forehead.


Its hind limbs exerted force, and its entire body leaped into the air!


This time, Lin Qiye didn't dodge.


He gripped the half guide cane tightly, his eyes fixed on the monster's eyes.




The monster's claws reached out, aiming directly at Lin Qiye's neck.


Just as it was about to touch Lin Qiye, the latter's eyes suddenly contracted!


The faint golden halo in his eyes, like a handful of firewood added, suddenly brightened, like two blazing furnaces!


A strand of Divine Might, using Lin Qiye's eyes as a medium, fiercely poured into the monster's body.


At this moment, the Lin Qiye in the monster's eyes changed, turning into a supreme Deity with six wings, exuding a terrifying Suppression!


So, under this Divine Might, its body fell into a brief stiffness.


In this brief moment, Lin Qiye raised the half guide cane in his hand high…


And accurately stabbed it into the monster's right eye!
