That thing was obviously faster than Xiang Nan. He caught up to Xiang Nan in a few steps and also pounced towards Xiang Nan.
The distance between the two of them was getting closer and closer! Only five meters, four meters, three meters, two meters! One meter! Half a meter! !
The moment Xiang Nan grabbed onto the Dead Sword, the thing also grabbed onto Xiang Nan's ankle, and the black sword stabbed towards Xiang Nan without hesitation.
Xiang Nan's backhand was a sword strike.
The two swords collided. The power of that thing was extraordinarily great, sending Xiang Nan flying again.
This time, Xiang Nan had risked his life, refusing to let go of the Dead Sword even if he died. He even used both of his hands to hold the Dead Sword in his arms, and his entire body fell into the distance along with the sword.
As for that thing, it was like a shadow that swiftly swept past the light region. When Xiang Nan flew backwards, it slashed towards Xiang Nan again.
This sword slashed into Xiang Nan's left arm, directly cutting off half of his left arm!
However, the pain was no longer as intense, and the pain had greatly decreased by more than ten times.
"The Dead Sword is protecting me." Xiang Nan's eyes turned cold. He lowered his head and looked at his left arm. His left arm was cut off from his elbow. Strangely, it did not bleed.
The strange scene had only just happened.
Holding the black sword, he bent his body and slowly walked into the light area. He picked up Xiang Nan's broken arm from the ground and placed it on his back.
As for Xiang Nan's severed arm, it actually grew up! It gave that thing a third hand behind its back.
"I've seen a ghost!" Xiang Nan frowned, and then his heart trembled, "What the hell? The Sword of the Dead? Could this be … the Underworld?"
Everyone said that every star in the sky corresponded to everyone on the ground. A falling star represented the end of a life.
Could it be that there was one person in the Life Realm, and there was one undead in the Nether Realm?
Could that be his projection in the Underworld?
Before Xiang Nan could think of too many complicated things, that thing had already rushed towards him with the black sword in hand.
"This thing's speed and strength are all stronger than mine. We can't face him head-on."
That thing had already rushed forward and slashed towards Xiang Nan's stomach, wanting to cut Xiang Nan's waist.
Xiang Nan somersaulted backwards, avoiding the threat of that sword strike, and at the same time, he stabbed the Dead Sword in the face of that thing.
That thing bent down and lay on the ground, like a spider, and quickly crawled towards Xiang Nan.
Xiang Nan's mind quickly circulated as he thought to himself, under the condition that all of his qualities were suppressed by that thing, there was only one way to win!
"You want my body? Take it!"
Xiang Nan resolutely cut off his left leg!
The thing suddenly changed direction as it flew towards Xiang Nan's broken leg. He hugged the broken leg and immediately inserted it into his waist.
Xiang Nan was also decisive, taking advantage of the gap between his legs, he directly pierced through him with his sword!
That thing was ruthlessly stabbed by the Death Sword at the core of the beam of light, and its mouth actually let out a miserable scream like a ghost crying and a wolf howling.
Xiang Nan was also exceptionally decisive. He first threw his left arm, and then he dared to chop off his left leg by Qi Gen.
However, such a sacrifice would result in victory.
That thing was nailed to the ground, and it was still screaming miserably. It even randomly waved its hands in an attempt to grab Xiang Nan.
Xiang Nan stood on one leg, his right hand fiercely twisting the Dead Sword a few times, causing the thing to scream endlessly.
"Not dead yet?" Xiang Nan's heart skipped a beat. How should he kill this thing?
Immediately after, that thing suddenly flew forward!
The Sword of the Dead was originally stabbed into the thing's chest. As he rushed forward, the Sword of the Dead directly cut through his chest until it reached between his legs, cutting the entire lower half of the thing into two halves.
However, that thing had already jumped up and hugged Xiang Nan's neck. Its mouth suddenly opened to the size of a bathtub, and there was no tongue in its mouth. All of them were covered in sharp fangs, and it fiercely bit towards Xiang Nan's face.
Xiang Nan sat down on the spot. The Sword of the Dead pierced straight upwards, piercing through the chin of that thing and piercing through the entire skull!
The tip of the Sword of the Dead pierced through the thing's head, pointing towards the sky.
However, that thing was still swinging back and forth, refusing to die.
"Could it be" Xiang Nan thought to himself, "When I was in the Life Realm, my ability to use the Sword of the Dead would revive the corpse."
"If I were to use the Dead Sword in this Underworld, what would happen?"
Thinking of this, Xiang Nan's thoughts stirred and he immediately urged the Dead Sword to release its resurrection ability.
A peculiar scene appeared.
There weren't any dead people here who had risen from the ground and resurrected.
It was the sword of the dead that suddenly burst out with a strong light, and it actually sucked that damn thing in! He sucked it into the sword.
"Ah …" Xiang Nan let out a long sigh. "So that's how it was done."
At this moment, he caught a glimpse of something at the corner of his eyes.
At the edge of the light zone, there were strange patterns on the ground.
Xiang Nan walked over to take a look and couldn't help but suck in a breath of cold air.
"Soul Locking Formation!"
"How …" Xiang Nan was shocked. "In such a damned place, there's actually a profound dao formation?"
"It's Su Hongtian!"
Xiang Nan immediately reacted. In the near future, only he and Su Hongtian were able to come to this Underworld.
However, Su Hongtian's situation was even worse than his own. He did not have the Death Sword in his hand.
However, looking at the Soul Locking Array, Xiang Nan felt that something was amiss. Inside the Soul Locking Array, there was a Soul Replacement Array.
In an instant, Xiang Nan understood many things.
His eyes couldn't help but turn red.
Xiang Nan looked at the sky and tried to jump, but in the end, his entire body flew up.
In the next moment, Xiang Nan suddenly opened his eyes in the Ice Palace.
"How are you doing!" Old Man Tian Ji grabbed Xiang Nan's shoulder and said, "You scared us to death just now!"
"What?" Xiang Nan asked.
The young man said, "You didn't know that your entire body had turned pure black just now, like charcoal that had been burned."
"You don't even have a breath or a heartbeat. We thought that your inheritance failed and you died."
"En … I'm not dead, but it's about the same. I may have walked around the Underworld Gate." Xiang Nan was thoughtful.
"What do you mean?" Old Man Tian Ji hurriedly said, "Tell me what happened."
Xiang Nan sighed and said, "I think I know how Senior Su Hongtian died."
"He didn't practice martial arts to kill himself, but sacrificed his own life."
Then, Xiang Nan told everyone what he had just experienced.
Everyone was dumbfounded.
Old Man Tian Ji asked, "Did you really see the formation left behind by my Senior Brother near the Underworld?"
"Really." Xiang Nan nodded, "Furthermore, that formation is very interesting. I have probably guessed what Senior Su Hongtian did and why he did it."
"This so-called martial art inheritance is not a martial art at all, but an inheritance capable of using the Sword of the Dead."
"Just like the Galaxy Bow, this Dead Sword must also recognize its owner. Otherwise, if it is used carelessly, its body will swallow up its own life."
Old Man Tian Ji said, "Then what did my senior brother do?"
