Sword of Fury – Chapter III, Part 11

The boulder was tied to several large ropes that hung on nearby trees. It was acting like a pendulum, swinging back and forth. Song threw a small blade boomerang at the ropes severing them from the boulder. The giant rock tumbled onto the ground and kept rolling until it crashed into the trees. Song withdrew her whip and acrobatically landed on the ground. But before she could gain a reprieve, another floating boulder suddenly appeared behind her. Song did not anticipate the second boulder and was not in a position to dodge.
The man with the jade spear recognized that his leader was in trouble. He swiftly moved toward the boulder and punched his spear at the giant rock. The spear’s blade pierced through the boulder, generating enough force to vanquish the rock into thousands of small fragments.
Observing from a bush close by were Jin, Boju and Daichin. Leveraging his prodigious strength, Daichin had been controlling the floating boulders under the direction of Jin, who architected the pendulum contraption.
Jin turned to Boju and said, “The guy with the jade spear is the most powerful fighter among the pursuers. His weapon is also quite potent. I think we have to go with our backup plan.”
Boju nodded in agreement and made a quick signal to Daichin.
