Murim Recurve - Chapter 322 - The Naipa King’s Breath Attack
“The Naipa King…” Re’Kha shuddered, unable to decide what to do. Upon seeing the three shells of the Sha, she determined that the three incidents reported by three different villages were done by one of them each.
So, all her three mission objectives were in one place. But, she was unable to do anything to them. After all, there was a Naipa King in the place. She didn’t dare think she was capable of taking on such a powerful foe.
It was a foe a group of powerful Harmonisers needed to go all out to handle. Considering that there were only three of them, they couldn’t hope to fight against it. As for her, even if she wished to use the power of a Kalha, she couldn’t do so. After all, the Fear Qi reserves in her eyes were empty.
So, she couldn’t hope to gouge its eyes out and weaken it first. At present, it if targeted her, she had no hope of escaping. Moreover, she didn’t know what it was thinking. If it decided to bring in all the Naipa, the villages in the valley would be wiped out within a few days.
But, it seemed the Naipa King had plans to develop the three Sha first. Re’Kha knew for a fact that if it succeeded, it would make its group too powerful to kill. After all, while fighting against a Beast King, they would also have to defend against a Sha.
A group of Martial Masters would be required in this case just to fight it alone. Moreover, a large troop of Harmonisers and soldiers would be necessary to handle the remaining Naipa.
‘And in the case the Sha matures, it would be too much to handle.’ Re’Kha frowned as she rode her Balou, soon reaching the other wall of the valley. She then began to scale up the slope, heading towards Wood Spring Village.
The villagers used any and every piece of item around them to hit the Sha. Some types of wood were rich in Fire Qi. They used it to slam into the Sha, slightly hitting it. But, they weren’t able to deal much damage.
None of the items they possessed were on the level of elemental weapons. They only had some items rich in Elemental Qi but weren’t suitable to wield. Among them, the village head had a sword that was almost an elemental weapon. He was a middle-aged man that was gaining in on his years, wielding his sword as he slashed at the Sha.
But, he stared blankly as the Sha had seeped into the ground, causing him to hit the ground. Then, his vision spun as he landed on the ground. Despite it being day, the villagers were beginning to experience mild fear upon seeing their attacks fail to damage the Sha.
And, every time it caused a person to fall, it grew a tad little. The amount was too little to matter. But it was indeed growing as a result. And if left as is, it would continue growing until it would become able to steal their body parts.
Re’Kha swiftly appeared in the village, speeding towards the Sha on her Balou, shouting in the process, “Move away!”
Upon noticing the Balou, they immediately realised that she was a Harmoniser. Cheering in relief, they moved towards the side, allowing enough space for Re’Kha to sprint towards the Sha. And, unlike the Blinded Ghost, it hadn’t developed enough to return to its shell from anywhere as it pleased.
That was something only a high-level Sha obtained. Upon seeing the Balou, the Sha quickly seeped into the ground, intending to leave the place. It didn’t have any confidence of going against a Harmoniser.
A Sha would terrorise the populace upon appearing. But, the moment it noticed that it was at a disadvantage, it would run away, reappearing only when it judged the situation to be beneficial to it.
“Everyone, keep moving! Don’t stand in one place! Don’t allow it to target you!” Upon her shout, the villagers began to move, ensuring they wouldn’t fall and allow the Sha to develop further.
‘There, ten!’ The moment she recovered 10 units of Water Qi, Re’Kha quickly shielded her Tikka jewellery and switched to the wind element, summoning her Rupak. She then switched back to the water element as the Rupak flew out, soon reaching high up in the air, almost reaching the clouds.
It then began to glide, accelerating further and further by making use of its body of air. Despite its speed, it was invisible. It glided at tremendous speeds, brandishing its claws as it targeted one of the Naipa, the one wearing the collar whose Sha was active in the Wood Spring Village. This way, it wouldn’t be able to defend against the attack. Otherwise, a Sha would realise the moment its shell was in danger.
Using the tremendous momentum, the Rupak’s claws accurately dug into the Naipa’s neck, grabbing hold of the collar and ripped it out, flying away as it began to attack it using its claws.
The Sha flew out from the village in panic, heading towards its shell. Upon seeing the sequence of action, the Naipa King frowned, having witnessed the scenes as it aimed in the direction the Sha was flying, able to faintly make out the collar.
It condensed Metal Qi into its mouth, for a moment causing the land around it to tremble as it shot out its breath attack. Its breath attack was shaped like a helical spring that swiftly drilled through the air.
It was small, only the size of her palm, but its speed was tremendous, causing it to emit a whistling sound as it flew. The Rupak quickly evaded, watching the breath attack fly past it, expanding to thirty times its size.
It turned into a large helical spring that coiled itself out, turning into a thin cylindrical rod due to the sheer number of times it coiled itself. The rod then landed on the ground far away, causing a thunderous rumble as it lodged deep into the ground until it couldn’t even be seen.
Upon seeing the might of the attack, Re’Kha shuddered, thanking her brain for not trying to face something as scary as that.. If she did, she would die, guaranteed.
