Chapter 1015 – I Want to See You Die
“I obviously won’t yield if you use methods like this!” the Blade Spirit of Frenzy Flower said.
“Methods like this? The path of slaughter has always been using whatever method is available, to attack the enemy’s shortcomings with your forte! If I lost to you instead, am I supposed to blame you for possessing too great of an ability and refusing to face me in a contest of strength?” Li Qingshan countered with a question.
The Blade Spirit of Frenzy Flower was unable to rebuke him. She suddenly swung her hand. “So be it. Victory is victory. Defeat is defeat. I’m the one who’s being petty. Though, I’d advise you to place me back into the Asura Altar of Armaments, or you better take responsibility for the consequences yourself!”
With that, she leapt into the blade and vanished.
Li Qingshan let out a sigh of relief. These intelligent weapons truly were a hassle to deal with, but no matter what she said, he would never just let go of something that was already his. “
Right as he was about to refine it, Yin Qing warned him.“Be careful, my king. This Frenzy Flower of Path’s End is a renowned blade of misfortune in the Asura realm. All of the asura that wielded this blade were either killed or died from madness. It’ll definitely lead you to the end of your path!”
“Frenzy Flower of Path’s End! That’s far too uncreative of a name. I think I better just call it Tiger’s Fang 2.0 instead!” Li Qingshan said complacently.
Yin Qing felt helpless inside, He only cares about the name?
“Tiger’s Fang 2.0! Don’t even think about refining me with that shitty name!” the Blade Spirit of Frenzy Flower roared furiously.
“Heh, that’s not for you to decide!”
Li Qingshan pressed down on the hilt and sent his soul sense inside. The landscape around him suddenly changed. Countless gorgeous flowers bloomed and withered in a boundless space. At a closer glance, they were all woven from sword auras, hiding an endless combination of bladesmanship.
The Blade Spirit of Frenzy Flower stood among the flowers. “Sure enough, you’ve come! You can’t use your brute force here anymore!”
Her warning was not kind-hearted advice, but malicious provocation. She wanted revenge here.
“So what if I’ve come?” Li Qingshan tried withdrawing his soul sense, but it was actually locked in here firmly, but he remained unfazed.
“Kid, if you kneel down and beg for mercy, I can still turn you into my blade slave. Otherwise, death awaits!” The Blade Spirit of Frenzy Flower’s mad laughter rang out from the surroundings, echoing through the entire space.
“Cut the nonsense. Let’s continue!”
Before Li Qingshan had even finished what he was saying, blade qi rushed over from everywhere. He hurled out a punch, and the blade qi all suddenly condensed into a Frenzy Flower Blade of Path’s End, gripped in the Blade Spirit of Frenzy Flower’s hand as it swung down!
Li Qingshan widened his eyes. He was unable to describe the wonders of that swing. It was completely undodgeable and undefendable.
The swing shattered his soul sense and damaged his mind, but the Blade Spirit of Frenzy Flower refused to stop there. Blade intent rushed into Li Qingshan’s sea of consciousness instead, forming the Blade Spirit of Frenzy Flower’s figure. She said proudly, “Serve me as a blade slave or die!”
“Impressive technique!” Li Qingshan praised.
The bladesmanship of the Blade Spirit of Frenzy Flower was unbelievably powerful. She truly was worthy of being a renowned blade from the Asura realm. Compared to that, the bladesmanship he had comprehended himself was basically as crude as cutting down firewood and butchering pigs.
As it turned out, this was what made the Frenzy Flower Blade of Path’s End terrifying. Unlike the outside world, it was completely a battle of wills here. Almost all abilities and techniques were rendered unusable, while the Blade Spirit of Frenzy Flower could unleash her bladesmanship to the limit in this space of blade intent. Even Asura Kings would not be able to defeat her here.
And once they failed to refine the blade, she would take advantage of the opportunity and attack their sea of consciousness. If they were not careful, they would be “refined” by her instead, becoming a so-called blade slave.
“Tiger’s Fang 2.0, you sure talk a lot of nonsense!” Li Qingshan smiled.
“Die!” The Blade Spirit of Frenzy Flower turned into a streak of light, rampaging through his sea of consciousness. She tried to stir up the entire place.
“The Spirit Turtle Suppresses the Seas!”
Li Qingshan shut his eyes, and a spirit turtle appeared in the depths of his sea of consciousness, giving off a faint glow. It filled the entire sea of consciousness in the blink of an eye, and the streak of light seemed to be trapped in mud, dimming and becoming sluggish. It was suppressed very soon.
“You!” The Blade Spirit of Frenzy Flower was stunned. Just what else was he capable of!?
“Who said I only have brute strength?” Li Qingshan circulated the Spirit Turtle’s Method of Sea Suppression, and the spirit turtle’s figure appeared around his body outside. The faint glow enveloped the Frenzy Flower Blade of Path’s End and seeped in slowly.
Standing on a spirit turtle, Li Qinghan appeared in the space of blade intent again and was about to directly suppress the Blade Spirit of Frenzy Flower.
“Don’t even think about it!” the Blade Spirit of Frenzy Flower called out.
All the flowers bloomed in the space, tearing apart Li Qingshan and the spirit turtle. The sharp blade aura cut through the glow.
“Suppress!” Li Qingshan’s eyes were serene, and the figure of the spirit turtle consolidated.
Stuck together and wearing each other down gradually, neither of them were actually capable of doing anything to the other.
Li Qingshan still ended up being the first to feel exhausted. If his mind was being constantly worn down, it would place an extremely great burden on him. All he could do was temporarily give up on the refinement.
In terms of will alone, the Blade Spirit of Frenzy Flower was much more powerful than Li Qingshan. The greatest advantage that weapons possessed was they would never suffer defeat. They would always be wielded by the victor. The endless slaughter of the Asura realm allowed her to accumulate countless victories and allowed her to devour countless blade slaves, which culminated into the space of blade intent.
However, weapons were still weapons at the end of the day, and wills could not be directly converted into strength. The bladesmanship and blade intent were limited by power, not just the enemy’s power, but also her own power.
Even if they fought another hundred times, Li Qingshan was confident about subduing her, so as long as he kept trying to refine her, there was nothing the Blade Spirit of Frenzy Flower could do about him. He was basically in a state where defeat was not possible.
However, this would also mean that the weapon he had exchanged for after so much difficulty would be completely useless to him, and he had to remain vigilant over any sneak attacks from her at all times.
Li Qingshan was running out of patience. He stood on the blade and bellowed, “If you keep putting up a stubborn resistance, I’ll snap you to pieces and turn you into a pile of scrap metal!”
The Blade Spirit of Frenzy Flower sneered in disdain, perhaps because she had guessed that Li Qingshan would not do that, or because she did not fear it at all. She had been condensed from pure blade intent, and she had been passed through the hands of countless asura in the past. None of them feared death.
“I won’t change your name then, so just get refined!” Li Qingshan ended up compromising when his coercion failed.
“Are you begging me?” the Blade Spirit of Frenzy Flower said.
“Beg my ass!”
Li Qingshan cursed and dragged the Frenzy Flower Blade of Path’s End back to the Asura Altar of Armaments, considering whether he should exchange her for a different weapon, but he also felt rather reluctant to do that. The space of blade intent was his greatest obstacle to refining the Frenzy Flower Blade of Path’s End, but it was also quite the treasure. It could allow his bladesmanship to advance rapidly.
As he hesitated, the Blade Spirit of Frenzy Flower said, “Unless you get a trash weapon, there are no weapon spirits that will yield to a weakling!”
“The weakling who subdued you? I’d advise you against provoking me. Once I lose my temper and get carried away, I don’t really consider the consequences. Even if I can’t refine you, I can seal you up or even destroy you!” Li Qingshan said coldly.
“What a coincidence, because I don’t want to go back to gathering dust in the Armoury of War and Chaos either. I can give you an opportunity, not only for you to refine me, but also to teach you bladesmanship so that you become even stronger!”
“Why’d you change your mind all of a sudden?” Li Qingshan asked.
“I really can’t accept it if I don’t see you die!” The Blade Spirit of Frenzy Flower did not even try to hide her killing intent.
