Zero To Hero In The Martial Arts Library - Chapter 141
Chapter 141: A Sudden Change
Fa Zheng’s expression suddenly froze.
Then, he took a deep breath and said in an extremely serious tone, “It’s the Eight-tentacled Octopus with a dragon-class bloodline, Norfis.
It’s said that its ancestor was an ancient variant of the star beasts, He Luo Fish.
Its bloodline is extremely old and powerful.
“During a beast calamity more than 300 years ago, it descended to Chu province with the strength of a peak divine grandmaster and attacked the human race in Chu province.
In the end, it was suppressed by an eminent monk of my Shaolin Temple.
“For so many years, it has been suppressed under the 72 Demon Caves of Shaolin.
“It’s one of the fearsome star beasts that Shaolin suppressed.
“For so many years, it has been continuously absorbing the spiritual energy of heaven and earth for Chu province.
” Ye Xiao was stunned.
A giant octopus? A creature with tentacles? Iron plate squid? Please Keep reading on MYB0X N 0 VEL.
COM Braised squid? Hot pot squid? Onion Squid? Fried squid? Fried squid skewers? Dried squid tendril? Something did not seem right.
Octopus and squid seemed to be two different creatures.
Then… Takoyaki? Looking at Ye Xiao who was silent and deep in thought, Fa Zheng thought that he was shocked speechless.
That was normal.
After all, no matter how good Ye Xiao’s temperament was, he was only a young man in his early twenties.
Moreover, his cultivation was not high.
Such a person would definitely be shocked when he heard about a powerful creature such as Norfis.
“This time, after Norfis’ clone is sealed in Jianghai city, it will bring more spiritual energy to the city to help the warriors here cultivate.
“You can also benefit from it.
“If you are willing to join our Buddhist sect, I will give you another soul-condensing pill.
It will be enough for you to activate your divine soul.
“At that time, your cultivation will advance to Houtian eighth or ninth grade.
It shouldn’t be a big problem.
” “Can I have a soul-condensing pill without joining the Buddhist sect?” “No.

COM … After Master Guang Liang and the director had discussed it, the convoy arrived at the library.
However, Ye Xiao and the others could go home.
It was also very easy to explain that point.
After all, sealing the star beast was a very big matter.
Other than those higher-ups, the others did not have the qualification to witness it.
Ye Xiao was too lazy to have anything to do with it and just wanted to go home.
He could more or less guess why they had chosen the library.
It was because King El was waiting for him in the library, and he had appeared at the library to fight him.
Therefore, those people probably guessed that he lived around the library.
However, what he had not known was that at that moment, there was a huge statue standing at the entrance of the library.
It was dressed in a long robe, had a bun on its head, and had a beard.
It looked like an old gentleman from ancient times, and it looked at least 80 years old.
On the back of the statue were a saber and a sword.
There was a huge rock under the statue’s feet.
There was a line of words carved on it ‘Jianghai City’s Divine Grandmaster, Senior Saber-sword Immortal!’ After Guang Liang and the others arrived, they greeted Du Tianyu, Du Changfeng, and the others, who had been waiting here for a long time.
After exchanging some pleasantries, they turned their gazes to the statue.
“Saber-sword Immortal! Those who dare to use this name are truly extraordinary.
” Du Changfeng explained, “Master Guang Liang misunderstood.
Actually, we still don’t know who this senior is or what his real name is.
“However, he is good at saber techniques and sword techniques, so we took the liberty to call him our senior, the Saber-sword Immortal!” “I see.
” Guang Liang nodded and could not help but sigh.
“Since ancient times, most human martial artists have only focused on cultivating a single martial art.
Even if they cultivate a few more cultivation techniques, they would cultivate on the basis of the same type of cultivation technique.
“Even our Shaolin divine grandmasters focus on strike techniques and body-refinement.
When they practice sabers and swords, they focus on either sabers or swords.
“I never thought that there would be a divine grandmaster in Jianghai city that trained both saber and sword at the same time.
Furthermore, they were so powerful.
This has truly broadened my horizons.
“However, it’s a pity that this penniless monk is unable to meet this extraordinary person.
What a pity! What a pity indeed!” Du Changfeng nodded.
“Who says so? Even us local martial artists of Jianghai city dream of meeting the Senior Saber-sword Immortal day and night.
“It’s a pity that he is so elusive.
We have never seen him before.
“I once had the chance to meet him.
I was lucky enough to receive the senior’s favor as he used a healing technique to heal my injuries.
“Otherwise, I would have gone to Jing province to find a famous doctor to treat me.
” “He knows healing techniques?” Guang Liang cried out in surprise.
Du Changfeng nodded.
“He’s very strong.
I reckon even his healing technique was nothing less than an imperial technique.
” “What did you say?” Guang Liang could not help but raise his voice.
Even the lesser divine grandmaster could not help but lose his composure when he heard such news.
That senior cultivated two martial arts at the same time.
He could already be considered a monster.
Now, he actually cultivated a healing technique that was not weaker than an imperial technique.
It was simply heaven-defying.
He looked at the statue again, and his eyes were no longer as calm as before.
Instead, there were traces of shock and respect.
Humans always yearned for the strong.
Even though he was already a martial arts expert at the lesser divine sect rank, when he was faced before such a powerful divine grandmaster, he could not help but yearn for it.
That was the strength of the divine sect! It was an extraordinary existence.
Seeing Guang Liang’s respect for the Saber-sword Immortal, Du Changfeng and the others could not help but feel proud.
It was true that they were not the object of Guang Liang’s respect, but he respected the Saber-sword Immortal.
The Saber-sword Immortal was also a martial arts expert of Jianghai city.
People like them who grew up in Jianghai city would naturally feel proud.
The Saber-sword Immortal was indeed the pride of Jianghai city! After a moment, Guang Liang said, “Time is almost up.
Let’s get ready to seal it.
” “Okay!” Du Changfeng agreed and immediately retreated to the side, leaving the main arena to Guang Liang and the other great grandmasters of the Shaolin Martial Arts Academy.
The construction of the spirit-gathering array needed to be done at 12 o’clock at night.
It was not like those arrays that suppressed evil spirits.
It needed to borrow the power of the sun at noon to suppress the evil aura in the evil spirits’ bodies.
Using the star beast as the array core not only needed to suppress the star beast, it also needed to ensure that the star beast’s power would not weaken.
Only then could the spirit-gathering array achieve the most perfect effect.
Moreover, from another point of view, both the star beast and humans needed the sun’s light and the power of the sun.
It was a power that was strong and full of vitality.
At noon, the Buddhist sect’s martial power was the strongest.
The star beasts’ power would also increase accordingly, increasing the difficulty of the seal.
At 12 o’clock at night, the Buddhist sect’s martial power would weaken, but the star beasts’ power would also weaken.
At that time, if the Buddhist sect strengthened their martial artists, they could easily offset the negative effects of the weakening of their martial power.
Therefore, other than the divine sect, Shaolin would also send 18 great grandmasters! Soon, everyone began to set up the array.
Guang Liang led the way to carve the array while the others acted as support.
They provided the Buddhist sect’s martial arts with the most masculine Yang energy.
They entered the array to help activate the array and at the same time, suppress Norfis.
At first, everything went smoothly.
If the array was carved then successfully activated, and the statue of the Saber-sword Immortal was placed on the seal, everything would be completed.
However, at the most critical moment when the array was built, something unexpected happened.
A great grandmaster suddenly stopped injecting his Buddhist martial arts power.
Not only did he stop injecting his Buddhist martial arts power, but he also suddenly attacked and struck Guang Liang’s ribs.
Splat! Guang Liang immediately spat out a mouthful of blood, and his aura instantly withered.
The others were all shocked.
“Fa Neng, what are you doing?” Fa Neng was not a fool.
After finishing his attack, he turned around and ran, completely ignoring those people.
“D*mn it! Don’t let him escape.
” Everyone was filled with righteous indignation.
Just as they were about to attack, Guang Liang suddenly spoke, “Everyone, stop!” “But sir, we can’t let Fa Neng escape.
He must have already betrayed the human race.
” Guang Liang’s expression was dispirited, but his eyes were still filled with determination.
“He wants to destroy our spirit-gathering array.
If you follow him now, you’ll fall into his trap.
“It’s very likely that Norfis will take this opportunity to escape.
“We have to complete the seal and spirit-gathering array.
First, we have to take care of this big head, Norfis.
“Principal Du, I’ll leave Fa Neng to you.
Bring some men to capture him.
” Du Changfeng nodded in agreement.
“Don’t worry, master.
Leave it to us.
” As soon as he finished speaking, he stomped on the ground, and his body instantly disappeared from where he stood.
The other martial artists followed closely behind him.
… Fa Neng quickly escaped, heading towards the outskirts of Jianghai city.
‘That bald donkey, Guang Liang, is quite smart.
He knew that I wanted to lure them away, but he just didn’t fall for it.
‘However, I managed to injure him, so it doesn’t matter.
‘As long as this clone of the main body is still alive, once Guang Liang leaves, the main body can find an opportunity to break the spirit-gathering array.
‘After that, he can use the clone to rescue the main bodies of the other divine sect star beasts from Shaolin.
‘At that point, the entire Zhong province will fall into a deep state of fear.
’ As soon as he finished speaking, he suddenly felt several powerful auras rapidly chasing after him from behind.
‘These auras? They are the great grandmasters of Jianghai city.
‘Normally, I would have already gone up and killed them.
‘But now, I should protect myself and hide from them for the time being to ensure that my plan to destroy the array and release the spirit body won’t go wrong.
’ With that in mind, he immediately descended to the ground.
In the blink of an eye, he landed on the ground.
He restrained his aura and blocked all of it from the others’ perception.
Soon, he saw a few figures flying over his head, and the corners of his lips curled up.
It was done.
Next, he just had to wait for Guang Liang to lead the team out of Jianghai city.
Before that, he should find a place and wait quietly for a few days.
With a sweep of his eyes, his gaze fell on a small independent house not far away.
That small house was in the middle of nowhere… It was a top-grade hiding place!
