Immortal Hero: I Can See the Success Rate - Chapter 75
Afterward, Lin An spent twenty lottery coins in exchange for two cultivation method upgrade points, and his Lightning Dharma Body advanced to the low-earth grade.
Although the low-earth grade wasn’t very impressive, it was enough. Lin An didn’t have many lottery coins left, so he planned to keep the remaining coins in case they came in handy in the future.
After a brief chat, Zuo Nanshuang took Lin An to her village. Since she was only an eleven-year-old girl, she gave her room to Lin An to sleep so that he could avoid suspicion, and she went to neighbor’s house to spend the night.
Due to the fatigue from his adventures in the Sacred Dragon Mystic Realm, Lin An fell into a deep sleep. He only woke up after three strokes of the sun the following day.
However, just as Lin An stirred from his sleep, Zuo Nanshuang pushed the door open and walked in with a flustered look on her face.
“It’s bad! It’s bad! Let’s run quickly. Today, I went to the streets to sell the ink devil beast’s corpse, and I discovered that many disciples from the Water Mirror Sect were searching everywhere for the person responsible for their colleague’s death. I reckon that it was the disciple that you killed. It won’t be long before they trace us, so let’s run quickly,” Zuo Nanshuang said as she packed her luggage.
After packing up, she grabbed Lin An’s hand and dragged him outside the room.
Lin An furrowed his brows and let Zuo Nanshuang pull him towards the village entrance.
Just as Zuo Nanshuang and Lin An reached the village entrance, they saw a ball of flames rushing towards them. Suddenly, the fiery flames exploded in front of them and blocked their path.
Zuo Nanshuang’s expression changed drastically as she muttered to herself, “How could this be?”.
“You’ve been acting like an old man since we met. Don’t you understand simple logic? How could a little girl like you, who’s only at the first stage of the Qi cultivation level have the ability to kill an ink devil beast? Seeing that you went to sell the corpse, didn’t you think that the Water Mirror Sect disciples would be suspicious?”
Lin An pushed Zuo Nanshuang backward and stood in front of her in a protective stance. “Go to a corner and find a place to hide. Don’t worry, I’ll bring you away safe and sound.”
Zuo Nanshuang obediently followed his instructions and ran behind the water tank under a nearby house. However, her face had turned pale with fear.
A group of cultivators flew over from all directions and entered the village. Wherever they passed, they killed every villager they saw. Immediately, the village was filled with a thick smell of blood and a cacophony of chilling screams rent the air
“Stop!” Lin An was furious. “I was the one who killed your fellow disciple. Why are you murdering these innocent people?”
“Hmph. Innocent! They won’t be innocent if they protect a criminal like you.”
“Lightning Dharma Body!” Suddenly, Lin An transformed into a streak of lightning and flew towards the cultivator in the lead.
The leader was condensing a fire attribute mana in his hand, and he was about to chop down a fleeing villager.
“Why aren’t you stopping!”
Lin An turned his body in the air and blocked the villager in front of him with a zigzag trajectory.
The fire-elemental mana ball did not break through Lin An’s morality demon sealing technique, and it instead crashed onto his body and exploded in all directions.
“Immortal Elder, save me!”
For a moment, the villagers who saw Lin An’s action seemed to have a glimmer of hope, and they immediately began to ask him for help.
At the same time, the villagers were very touched. They had always thought that in the eyes of immortal cultivators, they were just ants that could be destroyed with a wave of a hand.
They never expected that an immortal cultivator would use his body to block an attack against them.
Lin An’s heroic act had deeply touched the hearts of the villagers, and they slowly overcame their fear and gathered together.
However, Lin An knew that protecting the villagers would not solve the problem. He solemnly raised his head and looked coldly at the immortal cultivators.
The Water Mirror Sect disciples showed no fear. They looked back at Lin An and sneered, “Hehe, if you had just come to the Water Mirror Sect and surrendered, there wouldn’t be so many mortals dying today.
Although I don’t know who you are, do you know that a strong dragon cannot suppress a local snake? Besides, you’re not a strong dragon. Isn’t it wise to keep a low profile when you’re on someone else’s ground?
I’ll use your blood to pay tribute to Li Luo’s spirit in heaven and to wash away the stain on the reputation of our Water Mirror Sect!”
These Water Mirror Sect disciples were high and mighty, and their hands were stained with the blood of countless innocent mortals.
They looked down on all living beings with derisive eyes and treated the humans as ants. With a simple thought, they could take away the villagers’ precious lives!
Lin An stood still and swept his cold gaze over the arrogant cultivators.
“Those who have their hands stained with the blood of sin will end up with sin!”
His tone was cold, and he looked at the immortal cultivators as if they were zombies.
Although Lin An’s voice wasn’t loud, every word he spoke was authoritative and clear!
The Water Mirror Sect cultivators exchanged puzzled looks after they heard his words.
At the same time, the villagers also looked at Lin An with solemn eyes. They felt that under the silent atmosphere, there was a surging emotion.
Lin An’s entire body was instantly covered in his black and white ashen flames, and his aura directly broke through the clouds.
Lin An pointed his finger towards the cultivators, and the sound of a flame explosion boomed out. It immediately shocked the surrounding area, and the expressions of the onlookers all changed.
The black and white ashen flames intersected in the air, forming a huge dragon that flipped over and flew up.
In an instant, the Water Mirror Sect cultivators were shocked.
“What is that thing?”
“What kind of magic treasure is that?”
“The pressure is actually so terrifying. Could it be a heaven rank secret treasure?”
“It must be. Only the magic treasures from the large sects can emit such terrifying energy fluctuations.”
“I think he’s only at the initial stage of the golden core level, but he actually has such a secret treasure. He must have something even better. Kill him, and take the high-grade magic treasure!”
Instantly, the eyes of dozens of Water Mirror Sect disciples flashed with greed. They activated the flying swords beneath their feet and charged towards Lin An.
They had an opportunity to obtain a magic treasure that belonged to one of the big sects? The temptation was too great for them.
“Die!” Lin An looked coldly at the greedy disciples and roared angrily.
He went on to raise his right hand and pointed it forward.
The black and white ashen flames formed an azure dragon that spun and rushed toward the Water Mirro Sect cultivators, creating an explosion in the air.
To Lin An’s surprise, one of the cultivators had bypassed the azure dragon, and he instantly threw a punch towards him. With no hesitation, Lin An countered the attack, and his fist collided with the cultivator’s fist head-on.
Suddenly, the immortal cultivator’s right fist was immediately shattered, but Lin An did not suffer any damage.
“Profound flame transformation!”
Lin An used the technique as he threw another punch, and he immediately shattered the immortal cultivator’s body and bones.
Seeing that their most powerful cultivator had been defeated by Lin An with one punch, the Water Mirror Sect disciples all fell silent, and the rapid rhythm of their heartbeats could be heard.
[“Ding! Congratulations to the host for winning the battle. You have received ten lucky draw coins.”]
The success rate system’s notification instantly lit up after Lin An killed the cultivator with his fist, while the black-and-white ashen flames had also made some progress in the second level of the nascent soul stage.
Lin An’s gaze didn’t linger on the dead cultivator. He immediately swept his gaze across the Water Mirror Sect disciples who had surrounded him in all directions.
However, a wave of fear had swept the disciples’ hearts, and they quickly retreated.
Lin An had actually killed an immortal cultivator at the intermediate stage of the golden core level with a single punch?
The disciples could not believe that he was at the initial stage of the golden core level.
