Li Yundong could see that most of the cultivators around were hiding in the night after taking a quick look. They had just attacked the surroundings with their powerful magical weapons, obviously not wanting to reveal their true identities in case they really grabbed the Diyuan Jindan and drew the prying eyes of others.
Under the night sky, the Tiandu Peak of Mount Huangshan became bustlingly busy in the blink of an eye. For a while, there were all kinds of powerful magical weapons in the sky in numbers that rivaled that of the stars and raindrops. Even though Li Yundong was strong and awe-inspiring, he couldn't stop so many weapons from rushing toward him.
His quick moves made the powerful magical weapons around him hit nothing but air. Just as his Yang Spirit was taken back, he suddenly heard a familiar voice shouting from outside, "Yundong, be careful!"
Li Yundong was shocked. "Chan'er? Why is she here? This is insane!"
Soon, Su Chan cried out loudly, "Ouch, don't hit me!" Her voice seems to have traveled from far away, as if she had instantly fled.
Some cultivators shouted, "If we catch her, Li Yundong will hand over the Diyuan Jindan!"
Li Yundong was furious. Immediately, his Yang Spirit shot out of his body again and he turned into Wisdom King's Fashen with superhuman powers and made a Mahamudra in the direction of their shouts!
There was a loud boom, and the cultivators who had said that they were going to grab Su Chan let out blood-curdling screams, no longer making any further movements.
At this time, Zhou Qin reached the top of the alchemy room by taking a few quick jumps, and came to stand next to Li Yundong's Yang Spirit, asking nervously, "Master, are you alright?"
Li Yundong glared at her angrily. "What are you guys doing here? Didn't I tell you to stay at home?"
Zhou Qin was stunned upon hearing his words and was about to say something when Zi Yuan flew over to them and said quickly, "Now's not the time to bicker. It's my fault, too! Hurry up and find a way to deal with the current situation!"
While they were busy talking, there were many more cultivators around manipulating their powerful magical weapons and magic and rushing towards Li Yundong.
Li Yundong no longer tried to dodge. His hands pinched the Reincarnation Nine Prints and his six arms moved in a flurry, as if he was a Thousand-Hand Buddha. He made countless Mahamudras in front of himself in an instant, blocking the rounds of attacks from the surrounding powerful magical weapons and spells one after another.
A cultivator hidden in the darkness shouted, "Li Yundong, hand over the Diyuan Jindans quickly. If you don't, we'll overwhelm you with our numbers!"
Li Yundong snorted angrily, "Trying to bully me by outnumbering me? Okay, bring it!" After that, he slapped another palm towards him.
However, it was obvious that this person had learned his lesson and he immediately shifted his position after speaking. Thus, there was no reaction after Li Yundong attacked him with his golden Mahamudra, which was as effective as a stone sinking into the sea.
Soon, the powerful magical weapons and magic returned in a fearsome stormy wave. In the dark night, the wind was raging, fireballs were flying everywhere, and the flying swords coming from each sect were unstoppable, flashing like lightning and moving wildly. For a time, all kinds of fascinating lights were glowing over Tiandu Peak, shining brightly around.
Facing the siege of the crowd, Li Yundong remained calm and composed. He made the Mahamudra with two of his hands, and the other four hands quickly held the Reincarnation Nine Prints to resist the tide-like attacks. After he had finished reciting the Mantra, he shouted and suddenly slapped forward with an Eight-wind motionless Fixed Samayah Mahāmudrā with the Diamond Element. With a bang, a dazzling row of Vajra Arhat appeared in front of him.
These Vajra Arhats were shining with golden radiance. Some were sitting cross-legged, and some were standing with their hands folded. They chanted Sanskrit scriptures, as if they were a dazzling golden wall, firmly wrapping Li Yundong and the others within.
The surrounding magical items and powerful magical weapons hit the golden wall impotently, causing waves of gleaming ripples, but they still could not breakthrough.
Watching from afar, one could see the various colored meteors slamming into the golden ball of light over Tiandu Peak. All of a sudden, the sky and the earth both began shaking, and rumbling sounds could be heard in quick succession.
Zhou Qin stared at the scene before her as she said in shock, "Master, what kind of magic is this?"
The experienced and knowledgeable Zi Yuan quickly replied, "Is this a Mahamudra? No way. How could it be so powerful?"
Li Yundong rumbled in a deep voice, "This is the real Mantra Mahāmudrā. Listen, there's no time to talk about this now. Take the Diyuan Jindans and leave quickly. I'll wear them out to buy you some time."
Zi Yuan immediately rejected the idea. "No way! Once we take the Diyuan Jindans with us, they will just shift and start chasing after us. Besides, haven't you noticed that none of these cultivators have dared to expose their identities? How do you know there aren't some still hiding in the darkness and waiting to make a move?"
Li Yundong gritted his teeth and roared, "Then what should we do?"
Zi Yuan pondered for a moment. "How much of the Diyuan Jindans are left?"
Li Yundong said as he applied his Mahamudra, "Wan Zhenyuan made four elixirs of life in one furnace, he took one himself, so there's still three left!"
Zi Yuan was shocked. "Four elixirs in one furnace? Wan Zhenyuan is awesome!"
Li Yundong gritted his teeth and said, "More than that! He won't give up until I'm dead. Therefore, he gave me three Diyuan Jindan, hoping I'd be hunted down by the enemy. Hmph, what a sneak!"
Zhou Qin replied in an annoyed tone, "How treacherous and vicious that guy is. By leaving them pursuers to you at this time, isn't it dangerous? Master, what should we do? Shall we leave this problem to someone else?"
Zi Yuan was astonished and immediately yelled, "No way!"
Li Yundong also laughed angrily and said, "Stop it! Since he's dared to leave this to me, I'll dare to take it! I'd like to see who can take the elixirs from me!"
Zhou Qin said nervously, "Master! The enemy cloaks himself in shadows while we are out in the open. We can neither advance nor retreat. We don't know how many enemies there are. What should we do?"
As she spoke, the powerful magical weapons around them, like a storm, continued constantly bombarding the golden wall formed by the Vajra arhats. The original Vajra arhats with golden radiance began to go dim, and some parts of them were even smashed to pieces.
Some cultivators were spurred on by the sight and shouted, "He won't be able to hold on much longer. Let's work harder!"
Li Yundong gritted his teeth and gave a loud shout. Once he had finished the Fixed Fundamental Palm, he quickly made another Atuo Print with his hands and spoke a new Mantra.
The roar suddenly shook the sky, and a shining golden Buddha appeared above Li Yundong's head in an instant. The Buddha was sitting on a fire Lotus Throne and surrounded by seven colorful circles of light. He crossed his hands and stretched out his two thumbs fingers to touch. The middle part of his index finger was straight, and his two fingers were holding his thumbs. From his palm, a soft light seeped out. As soon as the surrounding Vajra Arhats, who were showing signs of being defeated, came into contact with the light, they immediately shot out a golden radiance. Then, the shaking golden wall became as solid as iron at once, growing even more stable than it had been before.
For a moment, the chanting of the Vajra Arhats became louder, as if all the Buddhas had gathered together. The chanting voices filled Tiandu Peak was even louder than the exploding sounds of magic and powerful magical weapons.
After Li Yundong had steadied himself with this one move, he looked around at the powerful magical weapons that were constantly shooting toward him. He laughed furiously and said, "Do you think I don't have any powerful magical weapons like yours? Let me show you what the Liuhe sword can do!"
As soon as he had finished speaking, the Liuhe flashed from behind him and flew into the air. In the blink of an eye, it turned into a glimmer of starlight, and after a moment, this starlight split into two or three points, and even countless more points of starlight. When they fell, it was like an overwhelming rain of swords!
The Liuhe instantly split into countless sharp swords in the air and attacked the cultivators hidden in the surrounding darkness.
Originally, Yan Fang had relied on the Liuhe to fight against many enemies alone on Mount Gezao. Finally, she had beaten them all until they could no longer fight back. Now, in the hands of Li Yundong, whose cultivation was even higher, the Liuhe was significantly more powerful than before!
When the cultivators around saw the Liuhe was so earth-shatteringly strong, they were all shocked. None of them had expected that Li Yundong would fight back in the face of so many people's besiegement of him!
All of a sudden, everyone was caught off guard and got knocked down!
Ding Nan was stunned and stuttered, "Master, wh... what kind of magic is this? Li... Li Yundong is too powerful, isn't he?"
Zheng Yuan's eyes brightened. He looked at Li Yundong with extreme vigilance and said, "This is the Atuo Print of the Mantra Mahāmudrā. Look, the handprint made by Peace in the Tao is very similar to a lotus and it might can increase the power of Buddhahood! Damn it, this guy has grown even stronger again! If he really gets these three Diyuan Jindan, humph, with the Liuhe in his hand as well, he will be invincible in the Cultivation World! No, I must stop him!"
Ding Nan just stared straight at the majestic Li Yundong. She muttered unthinkingly, "How can we stop him?"
Zheng Yuan's eyes flickered for a moment, then he glanced at Alba. Laughing maliciously, he said to Ding Nan, "Grab her. We'll trade her for a Diyuan Jindan. Let's see how Li Yundong will react."
Ding Nan was startled. "Me? Bring her out here?"
"Come on, are you deaf?" Zheng Yuan stared at Li Yundong as if he wanted to identify the flaws in his every action and expression. Although Li Yundong was being besieged at this time, he was not in a disadvantageous position while he was relying on his powerful Zhenqi and Mantra Mahāmudrā.
Ding Nan was not stupid. Of course, she knew that whoever stood out at this time would definitely become one of Li Yundong's most hated targets. Even if Li Yundong surrendered and gave her the Diyuan Jindan, she would immediately become the new target for all of the cultivators in the whole world.
This posed quite a dilemma for her.
Ding Nan cursed him in her heart, but she said with a pleading face, "Master, we can't do that now. What if..."
However, before she could finish her words, Zheng Yuan suddenly turned his head and stared at her with his terrifying, stormy eyes. He spat in a cold voice, "Do you want to die? Didn't you hear what I said?"
Ding Nan was frightened by Zheng Yuan's expression at this moment. She suddenly realized that in the face of the great temptation of the Diyuan Jindan, Zheng Yuan could no longer maintain his arrogance and state of calm. At this time, this cold, cruel, and ferocious man was showing his true colors!
Ding Nan's heart hardened. She resisted the raging anger and shock in her heart, forced a smile at Zheng Yuan, and then dragged Alba onto the field.
Standing at the door of the Immortal's cave, Ding Nan looked up at the imposing Li Yundong above her in the alchemy room, and at Zhou Qin who was intimately beside him. She cried in her heart, "Why me? Why is this kind of thing always happening to me? Why does she always get to stand tall in style? Why?"
Seeing Ding Nan standing not far away and staring at Li Yundong in a daze, Zheng Yuan impatiently snarled at her, "Why are you doing?"
Ding Nan was startled. She gritted her teeth and raised her head to shout at Li Yundong, "Li Yundong! Stop what you're doing or this girl will not live to see another sunrise!"
