Chapter 70: Unable to withstand a single blow, Dire Situation
“Pa! Pa! Pa!”
Crisp sounds rang out as the metal chains struck the ‘Rending Claw’ one after the other causing sparks to fly everywhere, the rotational force of the ‘Rending Claw’ managed to block these metal chains and sent them flying but at the same time, Su Yu felt a sharp pain at his stomach region, there was a metal chain which had managed to strike him.
Fresh blood splattered as Su Yu miserably cried and tumbled away. This blow had caused a bloody line on his body which was half a centimetre deep.
The metal chain which the Single Eyed Zombie King had sent flying out had seen blood and it let out an excited roar as it jumped once again, seeming like a huge mountain.
Su Yu bore the pain and noticed a black figure descending as he hurriedly rolled to the side.
It seemed like the ground was shaking and the mountains were trembling. Su Yu tumbled away and at the area where he had just been were two huge feet, if he had been slower to roll away those two feet would have landed on his body and the frightening force behind the drop would surely have caused his organs to burst out.
This figure that descended from high above was clearly the Single Eyed Zombie King.
Su Yu tumbled but his left hand swung forward with the ‘Rending Claw’, smashing towards the pair of legs by his side.
On the other side, Ma Zi Ye had climbed back up as she silently made her way to another patch of wild grass before stomping the ground and activating the ‘Web of Metal’.
She could see the fearsomeness of the Single Eyed Zombie King and even Su Yu could not withstand a single blow. Under these dire circumstances, Ma Zi Ye felt all the blood in her body boil, it seemed that she had the chance to save or help Su Yu and she was filled with excitement, her body filled with an inconceivable strength causing her strange energy to grow even stronger.
The strength of the strange energy seemed to have some connection to a person’s emotions and the strength of Ma Zi Ye’s strange energy within her right leg had increased to an unprecedentedly strong level.
Su Yu tumbled on the ground while sending forth the ‘Rending Claw’ smashing towards the legs of the Single Eyed Zombie King. Excitement and bloodthirst could be seen on the Single Eyed Zombie’s King’s face as it seemed unwilling to kill Su Yu too fast. It had planned to use its leg to step on Su Yu before slowly tearing his limbs off one by one, that would be more entertaining than killing him instantly.
“Ah?” As the Single Eyed Zombie Kind attempted to lift its legs, it felt that something was amiss, its legs were actually tangled by black ropes which caused it to be unable to lift its leg.
This moment of pause was enough for the ‘Rending Claw’ of Su Yu to smash onto the ankle of the Single Eyed Zombie King.
Sparks flew as huge metal chains appeared at the ankles of the Single Eyed Zombie King, blocking the ‘Rending Claw’.
The ‘Rending Claw’ which was rotating at high speed smashed into the metal chains causing sparks to explode out.
“Roar!” Su Yu howled as his left arm began to emit white mist, the ‘Rending Claw’ pressed onwards and he knew this was their only chance.
“Pa! Pa! Pa!”
The metal chains which were blocking the ‘Rending Claw’ began to break one after the other and it seemed like the ‘Rending Claw’ would actually be able to pierce through both legs of the Single Eyed Zombie King. If it lost both its legs, it would be like a tiger without its teeth.
Ma Zi Ye who hid in the wild grass knew that victory was hanging in the balance and stomped hard, utilising the full power of her ‘Web of Metal’. No matter what, she had to hold the Single Eyed Zombie King’s legs in place for Su Yu to land his blow.
“Roar!” The Single Eyed Zombie King also roared, this was the first time that it had felt danger and metal chains exploded out, suddenly allowing it to lift its legs.
“Pa! Pa! Pa!”
Like the sound of a tense bowstring snapping, a frightening matter occurred. The ‘Web of Metal’ which was snaring the Single Eyed Zombie King was actually forcefully pulled till it broke, Ma Zi Ye had exerted too much strength and fell limply to the ground, blood could be seen trickling out of her mouth.
Once its legs regained freedom, the Single Eyed Zombie King’s other leg flew up and with a ‘Bang!’ kicked Su Yu’s body.
Su Yu screamed miserably as his body flew out like a broken kite before heavily knocking into the trunk of a large tree and stopping, rebounding off and falling to the ground. This large tree was shaken by the frightening force from the impact and swayed, many leaves fell to the ground.
Su Yu lay on the ground, spitting blood out of his mouth. Over ten bones in his body had been broken and as he fell to the ground, his entire body seemed rigid and numb, the taste of blood was in his throat as blood continually surged up from his abdomen.
Although his injuries were serious, Su Yu’s mind was still clear. The strange energy which was in the form of qi in his left arm surged violently as streaks of it began to spread out into all areas of his body, it was a pity that the qi immediately returned to its original form once it left the left arm, unable to maintain itself as qi.
Although the effectiveness was far from that of qi, Su Yu’s body which was under the nourishment of the strange energy was quickly recovering, using all his strength he managed to roll on the ground.
He had just rolled away when the Single Eyed Zombie King landed, its two arms waved as several metal chains wildly struck towards Su Yu who was rolling.
After the close shave earlier, the Single Eyed Zombie King no longer had a playful attitude but rather wildly shot its metal chains out like snakes as they flew towards Su Yu.
Su Yu violently howled, he had no way to dodge the endless number of metal chains coming towards him. Besides his left arm, the other areas of his body were too ordinary and with so many metal chains wildly flying over, in the blink of an eye he would be smashed into meat pulp.
Su Yu who was in mid tumble madly sent his ‘Rending Claw’ flying forward with the white mist being emitted.
Suddenly, “Kaboom! Kaboom!” the Single Eyed Zombie King was shocked and lifted his head to discover that wherever Su Yu tumbled past, the large trees would be severed and one of the trees was actually falling towards the Single Eyed Zombie King.
As for Su Yu, he kicked with both his legs, like a swimming fish as he stuck to the ground and slid, dodging the endless number of metal chains.
A dejected groan could be heard as the Single Eyed Zombie King was forced to stop and block the big tree which was smashing towards it. This pause was sufficient for Su Yu to get up and run madly in the direction of the shrubs ahead of him.
By the side, Ma Zi Ye hugged her chest as she gingerly stood up, she could see the roaring Single Eyed Zombie King jumping towards the shrubs and although she wanted to help Su Yu, her left leg was continually trembling and even standing was a difficulty.
The ‘Web of Metal’ had been forcefully broken and the rebound from it had caused frightening injuries. This was akin to Su Yu using his ‘Rending Claw’ and its high rotational speed was suddenly forcefully stopped by someone, causing it to come to a complete halt. The frightening rebound from this would be enough to make Su Yu’s left arm explode.
It was fortunate that the ‘Web of Metal’ of Ma Zi Ye did not have the destructive force of the ‘Rending Claw’ and the rebound she suffered was much lighter, even so, her left leg was incapacitated.
The Single Eyed Zombie King roared as it landed heavily within the shrubs, the forceful impact of its landing caused two huge footprints to be left in the dirt. As for Su Yu, he had already escaped from the shrubs and was crazily rushing to an area with a dense copse of trees.
