EIF - Book 03 Chapter 076: My Father Is a Matchless Hero; No One in the World Can Get in His Way

Whoosh! Whoosh!

The two flying ships sped through the sky, one in front and the other behind.

Long Wanqing, wearing a conical bamboo hat, rode in the ship flying in front. The Unborn Man rode on the one behind.

As the Unborn Man piloted his flying ship, he kept his head down while radiating a surging murderous air.

“Gu Hai, you can’t run. On account that you sought me out in the Innate Puzzle World, I’ll leave you with a complete corpse,” the Unborn Man said coldly.

The two flying ships were far apart, but the Unborn Man’s voice strangely reached Long Wanqing’s ears.

As Long Wanqing wore a conical bamboo hat with Gu Hai’s hair pasted on it, the Unborn Man mistook her for Gu Hai.

Long Wanqing had already made up her mind. Naturally, she would not reply. She just drove the flying ship at full speed.

“A little longer. A little farther. It should be about fifteen minutes already. Gu Hai should have seen that letter, right? Quickly go. Flee. I’ll help you delay him a little more. Just a little more.” Long Wanqing bit on her lips as she clenched her fist, driving the flying ship forward at full speed.

Whoosh!

The flying ship’s speed increased again.

“Trying to flee? You can’t escape. The people that I want to kill can never escape,” the Unborn Man said coldly.

As the Unborn Man spoke, black energy erupted from behind him. This black energy surged into the sky while connected to him, covering the sky as it stretched towards the flying ship in front.

Kek! Kek! Kek! Kek! Kek! Kek!

Sinister ghostly cries came from the black energy as it formed the image of a three-hundred-meter-tall ghost. With a ferocious expression, this ghost extended black energy tentacles towards the flying ship in front.

The two flying ships were far apart, but the black energy tentacles connected them.

Whoosh!

A black energy tentacle suddenly caught Long Wanqing’s flying ship.

Long Wanqing turned her head and saw that sinister and horrifying ghostly figure. That sight inspired terror; her hair stood on end.

“Hurry! Hurry! Hurry!” Long Wanqing trembled in fear.

Long Wanqing pushed on with her strong willpower, fleeing in terror to buy more time for Gu Hai.

Whoosh! Whoosh!

Another two black energy tentacles wrapped around the flying ship.

Now, the distance between the two flying ships shortened.

“Gu Hai, stop now. Otherwise, I will shatter your souls and leave you without a corpse.” The Unborn Man’s sinister voice rang out once again.

Long Wanqing was already terrified of the ghostly figure, currently trembling in fear. Tears filled her eyes.

“Father, Mother said that you would come and protect us. Why have you not arrived? Father, where are you?” Long Wanqing said in horror, calling out to her past mental support.

However, right now, it felt like nothing responded to her.

------

Mother, why do my cousins all have fathers, but I don’t? Where is my father? My cousins laughed at Younger Sister and me again, saying that we were fatherless children, saying that Mother had a secret lover. Younger Sister and I said that isn’t the case. Then, we fought. Sob! Sob! Mother, am I a fatherless child?

Little Wanqing, don’t cry. You have a father. Your father is a matchless hero; no one in the world can get in his way. He had to go to a distant place for some reason. However, he will come back one day. If anyone dares to bully the three of us, he will take revenge for us. No matter who it is, he will protect us and not let us suffer.

My father is a matchless hero; no one in the world can get in his way?

------

Memories of the past flashed in Long Wanqing’s mind. She was now alone and helpless. Her mother’s words echoed in her mind as she trembled in fear.

Father? Where are you? Mother died, and people frequently bully Younger Sister and me. Where are you? Mother said that you would protect us, not let us suffer. However, where are you now, Father? I am very afraid! Very afraid!”

Long Wanqing’s tears flowed out amid her fear.

“For the last time, halt! If you do not, you will die without a corpse.” The Unborn Man’s sinister voice rang out from behind.

As the Unborn Man spoke, the black energy ghostly figure stretched out another large black tentacle. Like a towering whip, that tentacle suddenly lashed down at Long Wanqing.

That was a tentacle of death. Everywhere it passed, space trembled.

The Unborn Man executed his finishing blow. It looked like the attack would strike Long Wanqing soon.

The threat of death overcame Long Wanqing; all her hair stood on end. Initially, she trembled from intense fear. Now, it felt like she had plunged into an icy cave.

Despair and fear of impending death instantly filled her body.

Long Wanqing shivered in terror.

Boom!

The black tentacle of death struck Long Wanqing’s back.

The moment the attack landed, Long Wanqing revealed sorrow in her eyes. “My father is a matchless hero; no one in the world can get in his way. He had to go to a distant place for some reason. However, he will come back one day. If anyone dares to bully the three of us, my father will take revenge for us. No matter who it is, my father will protect us and not let us suffer.”

Bang!

The attack knocked Long Wanqing away. The black tentacle of death struck her souls. Black energy immediately wrapped around her as she fell to the deck. The conical bamboo hat exploded, revealing the bald Long Wanqing.

Buzz!

The flying ship suddenly stopped.

When Long Wanqing fell to the flying ship’s deck, a faint green aura appeared around her body.

Buzz!

Set off by the black energy’s contrast, three spiritual souls appeared. The three souls wavered, looking like three translucent Long Wanqings.

One of the souls suddenly exploded, shattering into countless fragments that scattered into the surroundings.

Another soul trembled slightly before vanishing. Only one soul remained connected to the body.

However, this final soul seemed to be fading.

“It’s you?! You are not Gu Hai?!” the Unborn Man shouted coldly.

“My father is a matchless hero; no one in the world can get in his way.” That last soul seemed to be in a daze, endlessly repeating those words.

“Humph! How stubborn! You even gave up on bringing your mother back to save Gu Hai?” the Unborn Man said coldly.

“No!”

Gu Hai’s despairing roar suddenly came from the distance.

Whoosh!

A flying ship shot over from a distance.

“Oh? You dared to give chase?” This startled the Unborn Man.

“Wanqing! Wanqing! No! No!” Gu Hai shouted in horror.

The Unborn Man threw a backhand palm strike at the approaching flying ship, forming a gigantic, black manifested palm.

Boom!

Venerable Liu Nian’s flying ship exploded, and Ensnaring Performance fell.

However, Gu Hai could not care. A part of bone wings erupted from his back as he flew towards Long Wanqing.

“Wanqing! Wanqing! Don’t die!” Gu Hai’s eyes turned bloodshot in his horror.

“Gu Hai, to think that you dare to come? Long Wanqing’s death is her own fault. She is already dead. No one can save those that I killed,” the Unborn Man said coldly.

As the Unborn Man spoke, he extended his palm towards Gu Hai.

“Unborn Man, you are not human! You scoundrelly thing!” Venerable Liu Nian suddenly roared in rage.

Venerable Liu Nian extended his hands, sending out eighteen Buddhist prayer beads. Huangfu Chaoge and Mu Chenfeng also launched attacks at the Unborn Man.

“You are seeking death!” the Unborn Man sneered.

The hand extending towards Gu Hai suddenly turned around towards the three.

Boom!

A loud report rang out, and space trembled. The Unborn Man’s palm strike completely negated the power of three Nascent Soul Realm cultivators. The resulting shock waves even severely injured the three.

Blargh!

The three flew back, vomiting blood.

“On account of your friendship with the lass, I will not kill you. However, if you remain stubborn, you will end up like Long Wanqing next time, dying without a corpse and having your souls shattered,” the Unborn Man spoke with a sinister, murderous tone.

“She is the previous hall master’s daughter!” Mu Chenfeng said in despair while vomiting blood.

“She is Xiaoyue’s daughter! Xiaoyue’s daughter! Yet, you shattered her souls and left her without a corpse?!” Huangfu Chaoge roared in rage while holding his chest.

“I only acknowledge the lass, no one else,” the Unborn Man roared, exuding a sinister, murderous air.

“Unborn Man, you are not human. You scoundrelly thing! Why did Xiaoyue fall for you back then? Why did she? Long Wanqing is your daughter! She is your daughter! Yet, you shattered her souls and left her without a corpse? You are not worthy of being her father. You are indeed not worthy. No wonder Xiaoyue refused to let you know, preventing you from knowing that Long Wanqing is your daughter!” Venerable Liu Nian roared in despair.

This information stunned the Unborn Man, freezing him in his tracks.

“What? Liu Nian, what did you say?! That is impossible! We lifespan cultivators are envied by heaven, fated to be childless. We cannot possibly have descendants. Furthermore, Long Wanqing is only thirty-one years old. I have not met with the lass for centuries!” the Unborn Man said coldly.

“She is your daughter. Aren’t you a lifespan cultivator? Can’t you see for yourself? Why did Xiaoyue keep that hairpin, which Gu Hai passed on to you, for centuries? It was because you gave it to her. You are inhuman, a scoundrelly thing! Long Wanqing is your daughter!” Venerable Liu Nian cried in despair.

The Unborn Man suddenly trembled.

“That’s impossible. Impossible,” the Unborn Man kept muttering.

However, the Unborn Man still extended his hand, pulling over all the fragments of the shattered soul.

“This is Long Wanqing’s mortal soul. It has shattered. It can’t be my daughter’s.” A strange ritual array of talisman scripts appeared in the Unborn Man’s palm as he trembled.

Buzz!

Long Wanqing’s shattered mortal soul floated above the talisman script ritual array as the Unborn Man touched it with his right hand.

Buzz! Buzz! Buzz! Buzz!

The ritual array suddenly glowed, and Long Wanqing’s shattered mortal soul glowed as well.

“My daughter? How could she be my daughter? My daughter?” The Unborn Man remained dazed.

“Wanqing! Wanqing! Don’t die! We haven’t got married yet! Wanqing!” Gu Hai hugged the black-energy-covered Long Wanqing, crying out in despair.

“Scram! Scram!”

The Unborn Man suddenly appeared before Gu Hai and swung his hand.

Boom!

The Unborn Man knocked Gu Hai away.

“Long Wanqing? Long Wanqing? You are my daughter? My daughter? No, how could it be like this?” The Unborn Man held Long Wanqing’s hand in despair.

Long Wanqing’s souls had scattered. However, there was still one soul connected to her body. This soul looked at the Unborn Man in a daze.

“Long Wanqing, my daughter! My daughter!” the Unborn Man yelled in horror while holding Long Wanqing’s hand.

Whoosh!

Long Wanqing unconsciously pushed the Unborn Man’s hand away, saying weakly, “You are not my father. My father is a matchless hero; no one in the world can get in his way. He had to go to a distant place for some reason. However, he will come back one day. If anyone dares to bully the three of us, my father will take revenge for us. No matter who it is, my father will protect us and not let us suffer.”
