Chapter 740: Frightening Strength
The group of protectors released an overflowing killing intent, especially Cha Yun Nong, who had revealed his true identity and was now getting restless, itching to show his strength. They had the ‘Red Devil God-Emperor’ on their side, boosting their confidence. After all, the gap between a Paragon and a Ruler was immeasurable. The moment one becomes a Ruler, it would be a qualitative change!
For example, Monarch Green could single-handedly defeat a group of Paragons, yet he had originally reached an extreme bottleneck in all three of his Daos. Despite that, he could barely match up against ‘Bloody Ruler Nile’, who was deliberately disguising his strength. This clearly demonstrated how massive the gap was between a Paragon and a Ruler.
They would definitely win! This would be a massacre!
“Hong hong hong hong hong hong…”
All of them turned into streams of light as they charged towards Xue Ying’s approaching group of protectors.
Xue Ying and the others were rushing over while still feeling puzzled.
“Brother Cong, Brother Shan Dan, what is happening?” Xue Ying did not understand the current situation. He could see that Protector Cong, Protector Shan Dan and the others flying by his side had ugly expressions on their faces. They had been following His Highness for a longer period, and naturally recognized the eldest prince ‘Jiao Yun Teng’ with a single glance. They also noticed the red-haired, single-eyed old man. That was the Ruler, ‘Red Devil God-Emperor’–an existence which they absolutely could not contend against.
“The eldest prince has brought his men here. The one by his side is a Ruler called Red Devil God-Emperor.” Shan Dan transmitted over to Xue Ying as he explained the situation.
“With the Red Devil God-Emperor around, we’re going to throw our lives away again.” Protector Cong remarked bitterly.
Xue Ying immediately understood.
During the past 30 million years, he had occasionally left his seclusion to exchange pointers with the other protectors. He had also received some information over this period, including the fact that the greatest nemesis of His Highness Jiao Yun Liu, whom he was currently serving, was the eldest prince “Jiao Yun Teng”.
“They are coming!”
“Let’s kill as many as we can before Red Devil God-Emperor acts.”
“Go all out!”
This group of protectors who rushed over had swiftly analyzed the situation. They knew that there was absolutely no hope of winning this fight. Every one of them was filled with indignation. They were Paragons, and they had their dignity! They were unwilling to be slaughtered like cattle and wanted to take advantage of Red Devil God-Emperor’s arrogance and take down as many of them as possible before he decided to personally take action.
Xue Ying glanced at the incoming hostile light streams, and then at the Red Devil God-Emperor in the distance. His eyes were filled with excitement. “There won’t be a better opportunity for me to fight against a Ruler before the final battle with Ancestor Mother Religion begins!’
Xue Ying flipped his hand, and six darts appeared in his palm. Having reached the sixth level of the Voidwalker body, the strength he possessed was genuinely frightening. After all, his current strength was sufficient to kill the three Holy Protectors with a little pinch, and there was simply no need for him to expend much effort to deal with this group of Paragons. Using just a small part of his strength, he threw the darts.
The six darts disappeared as they entered the Mirage World.
Following that, another six darts appeared in Xue Ying’s palm, and he also threw them out! This set of darts was obtained from the protectors of the Ancestor Mother Religion, and one set contained 12 darts.
The 12 darts were flying within the Mirage World. Each dart contained a terrifying power. With Xue Ying’s control over the Mirage World, he was able to make the 12 darts simultaneously leave the Mirage World, appearing right before the bodies of 12 different protectors. Even in the Cultivator Cosmos, nobody could have sensed his attacks before they reached them.
The 12 protectors were each struck in the chest by a dart. The dart fully penetrated their chest and exited through their back, before vanishing without a trace.
In the instant when the darts penetrated through their chests, an invisible force filled with a frightening killing intent was transmitted into their bodies. Every part of their body trembled slightly.
The 12 protectors were originally flying at high speed, but after the impact, they stared on blankly and continued flying as per inertia, though they became slower. The other protectors glanced over in puzzlement.
As if they were made of sand and grit, the bodies of the 12 protectors began crumbling apart, before totally disintegrating.
The bodies of the 12 protectors had completely crumbled. The body of one of the protectors appeared from the void, hunched over and garbed in black. Under the black robe, his green eyes stared in shock at Xue Ying in the distance.
The entire battlefield turned silent!
Not just the protectors on Xue Ying’s side, even the eldest prince’s protectors stopped in their tracks.
‘Why is it him again? Why? I hate this, I hate it!’ His Highness Jiao Yun Liu glared at the distant golden-armored male while trembling. Clearly, his fury had reached the tipping point. ‘I discovered the Black Devil Sacred Fruit Tree and endured for such a long period, just so that I could rely on the fruits to break through. But why is he here again? I can’t just let my efforts go to waste!’
His Highness Jiao Yun Liu looked at his subordinates fighting against his eldest brother’s protectors. He felt pain in his heart.
He was clear that the moment Red Devil God-Emperor made his move, he would wipe out the strongest protectors on his side. The others would eventually be surrounded and killed.
‘What should I do, what should I do?’ Jiao Yun Liu felt indignation, despair, and unwillingness at the same time. His blood was boiling, and he felt that his head was about to explode.
Jiao Yun Liu was stunned.
He looked in a daze as the 12 darts disappeared after penetrating through 12 protectors. The bodies of those protectors crumbled directly, leaving only one who had reincarnated from the void.
Jiao Yun Liu’s gaze turned towards Xue Ying in the distance. At this moment, the 12 darts had already returned to Xue Ying. He waved his hand and kept them.
“Protector Dong Bo?” Jiao Yun Liu murmured.
Not just the opposing group of protectors, even Xue Ying’s comrades were all appalled at what just happened.
He casually threw out some darts, and 11 Paragons lost their lives? Those protectors even had armor on, yet they were penetrated and killed with a single dart?
How many protectors did the eldest prince have? He only had slightly more than 20! How many times over could Xue Ying kill them?
“Brother Dong Bo?” Shan Dan, Protector Cong, and the others were stunned. They did not dare believe that this comrade of theirs, whom they had sparred with several times, and had a pleasant mood, would be this terrifying.
“Aren’t you leaving?”
As Xue Ying spoke, he did not stop his flight towards His Highness Jiao Yun Liu.
“Retreat!” The eldest prince’s protectors were all so frightened that they began escaping. They did not harbor any thoughts of fighting back; the current Xue Ying was too powerful. He was even stronger than Monarch Green and Pang Yi from before they became Rulers. It was simply a slaughter.
‘The gap is too big. No wonder teacher and the rest did not allow Paragons to participate in the final battle.’ Xue Ying thought. His previous strength had been disdained by Rulers. Only the ‘Black Gourd’ was of help to them.
‘But with my current condition, it should suffice.’
Xue Ying glanced at the Red Devil God-Emperor before landing right in front of the palace door. He looked at the slightly stunned Jiao Yun Liu. “Your Highness.”
“Protector Dong Bo.” His Highness Jiao Yun Liu was genuinely startled. He didn’t treat this newly-joined Protector Dong Bo any differently from any other new protector and had not paid much attention to him. Today, Xue Ying’s actions stunned him silly. This ‘Protector Dong Bo’ had far surpassed his imaginations. It was likely that the group of protectors under his eldest brother would be sweep clean.
“Your Highness doesn’t have to worry. With me around, none will be able to harm Your Highness.” Xue Ying said.
“Good, good, good. You should be wary of that Red Devil God-Emperor. He is a Ruler and is very formidable.” His Highness Jiao Yun Liu was honestly still feeling unease. That was a Ruler after all.
Xue Ying chuckled.
He did not have the certainty of winning against a Ruler. But he was fully confident that he could defend His Highness! Having reached the sixth level of the Voidwalker cultivation arts, his control of the void had strengthened enormously. He could bring along His Highness and flee in a single instant.
But he would not simply admit defeat.
“Such a haughty tone.” A cold voice transmitted from afar.
Xue Ying turned around.
The golden-armored ‘Jiao Yun Teng’ wore an extremely furious expression. “You are the new protector hired by that useless little brother of mine? Hmph, you overestimate yourself” He turned towards Red Devil God-Emperor beside him.
The lone eye of that Red Devil God-Emperor remained calm. He even revealed a grin. “Brat, you are quite formidable. You should be unparalleled amongst Paragons. Oh right, what is your name?”
“I am Dong Bo Xue Ying.” Xue Ying looked up at the other party.
Red Devil God-Emperor felt his interest peaking. “I am going to kill that Highness of yours while taking away those Black Devil Sacred Fruits with me. Are you certain that you want to fight against me?”
Xue Ying was suppressing his excitement and delight. He did not have an accurate judgment of where he stood in terms of power after 30 million years of cultivation. Furthermore, the final battle which was about to erupt in his hometown made him look forward to fighting with a Ruler. Watching the Red Devil God-Emperor standing high up in the sky, vigor was present in Xue Ying’s eyes. He grinned, “I am looking forward to having a battle with you. This is my first time fighting against a Ruler.”
