Chapter 980: Fight Hand in Hand
Xue Ying was stupified.
Even though he knew Scarlet-Browed Mountain Master had a peevish and tyrannical personality–the other party would even roar like a lion against a crowd of Cosmos Gods–this matter where the other party forced him to pay 10,000 Origin World Rocks just because of a minor affair was going overboard.
“Hmph.” Xue Ying couldn’t be bothered about this madman. He casually replied: “Scarlet-Browed Mountain Master, I am still searching for Destruction Devils, so I’ll no longer accompany you.”
“You want to leave?” Following a roar of anger, Scarlet-Browed Mountain Master turned into a blurred stream of blood light and shot towards Xue Ying. This puzzled Xue Ying. It seemed this Scarlet-Browed Mountain Master wanted to act against him?
Scarlet-Browed Mountain Master was currently filled with killing intent. He deliberately challenged the other party and asked for 10,000 Origin World Rocks actually because he wanted to fight with Xue Ying. He was even worried that Xue Ying would not use his full strength and thus continued challenging the other party: ‘This Dong Bo Xue Ying, I’ve heard that his Destruction Flower is very powerful. Furthermore, his illusory realm required me to redirect 70% of my heart energy to resist. He will definitely be a good training partner!’
‘I need this kind of life-threatening feeling. Who knows if I might gain some enlightenment under this pressure, allowing me to break through the last bottleneck and become a Cosmos God!’ Scarlet-Browed Mountain Master’s eyes were brimming red.
At his current stage, becoming a Cosmos God was his strongest wish.
Want to become a Cosmos God? Fighting under sufficient threat would be the best tempering for him.
Xue Ying wanted to teleport away, yet he felt the surrounding space was congealed and he could not do so. He could only fly back rapidly: ‘This Scarlet-Browed Mountain Master’s attainments in the void is so high that it is comparable to mine!’
As he flew back at high speed, Scarlet-Browed Mountain Master leaped towards him as a stream of blood light.
One side was chasing the other, and the other was escaping. In the blink of an eye, they traveled across several ten million kilometers. Scarlet-Browed Mountain Master was even inching closer to Xue Ying.
‘It seems he is slightly faster than me?’ Xue Ying was becoming more alert. Scarlet-Browed Mountain Master’s figure was like a blood shadow–it appeared at times and disappeared at times. It was very similar to the ‘void-ification’ state.
Xue Ying who was initially running stopped. An enormous fiery-red god bird, the ‘Vermillion Nightmare’ appeared behind his back. Its enormous wings covered the world, and countless scarlet aura began spreading out and covered that Scarlet-Browed Mountain Master. The illusory realm was continuously invading into the soul of the other party, causing Scarlet-Browed Mountain Master to frown slightly. By relying on ancient cultivation, this illusory realm would consistently strike out at the other party, and Scarlet-Browed Mountain Master had to spend a huge amount of his heart energy to resist against it.
“No longer running?” Scarlet-Browed Mountain Master stopped in midair, “Then receive my move.”
A strange circular wheel suddenly appeared in his hands. The wheel was translucent, and it was very thin, so thin that Xue Ying could not accurately determine its thickness, though he could deduce that it should be similar in scale to that of the black fog spherical hole.
This shocked Xue Ying; he began looking forward to it.
How strong was Scarlet-Browed Mountain Master? He was unquestionably at the ninth level. His combative techniques were unique too–the other party could escape anytime he wanted. None could obstruct him. He also had his mysterious avatars that others could not find traces of. Hence, his status was transcendental.
“Go.” Scarlet-Browed Mountain Master hurled out the circular wheel in his hand.
The translucent circular wheel arced through the sky.
It was incredibly thin.
This thinness was on the scale of the black fog spherical hole, causing it to become amazingly sharp, much more than many secret treasures. Everywhere it got through–even void–was cut. Xue Ying could ‘perceive’ that some of the black fog spherical bodies were being cut too. This was an extremely formidable technique that had reached the ninth level strength.
With a thought, Xue Ying made the nine-petaled flower descend.
The huge black flower bud descended and easily wrapped around that circular wheel. Many nine-petaled flowers directly enveloped that wheel. “Pu”, the circular wheel stealthily cut through a nine-petaled flower. As the flower was cut, it collapsed and exploded. This horrifying power shook the circular wheel, drastically reducing its strength. Just after cutting part of the second nine-petaled flower and the force of the circular wheel was dissipated entirely.
‘If not for his illusory realm, I would be able to employ multiple void wheels at the same time.’ Scarlet-Browed Mountain Master extended his two hands, causing a wheel weapon to appear in it. Both weapons were similarly thin. It seemed they were a pair of precious secret treasures which allowed Scarlet-Browed Mountain Master to exert a formidable force. During ordinary occasions when he fought against the enemies, he would usually be able to deal against them after employing multiple Void Wheels. But this time, due to the suppression from the tenth transformation of Vermillion Nightmare inheritance, 80% of his heart energy was suppressed, and he had to spend all his heart energy to maintain his close combat skills.
Scarlet-Browed Mountain Master continued flying towards Xue Ying.
Xue Ying waved his hands, causing a nine-petaled flower to directly descend over the other party. Scarlet-Browed Mountain Master was extremely tyrannical. The wheel weapons in his hands rampantly struck out, easily cutting through the nine-petaled flowers.
‘The nine-petaled flowers could restrict the enemy, but it is still best in terms of destruction. The flowers are able to restrict those ninth level Destruction Devils, but they are too weak when facing Scarlet-Browed Mountain Master.’ Xue Ying thought. The Void Wheels employed by Scarlet-Browed Mountain Master were ninth level techniques. Currently, by relying on his pair of secret wheel treasures, he became stronger.
Xue Ying let out a thought.
One after another brilliant nine-petaled flower began blossoming before exploding. Scarlet-Browed Mountain Master could not help but roar indignantly. He was continuously rushing out and withstanding against the power of the destruction. He was even forced to use his weapons to defend against them.
Xue Ying’s nine-petaled flowers were endless. During their destruction, new ones would descend again.
‘I could not win?’ Scarlet-Browed Mountain Master felt helpless. Even though he wanted to temper himself by fighting with Xue Ying, he similarly wanted to win! He had never been defeated for a long time. He naturally recognized that he had great talent, and he had never placed any Primal Chaos giants in his eyes before. Scarlet-Browed Mountain Master even belittled the Cosmos Gods.
In his opinion, they were all fools who would die in the great apocalypse.
He was proud of this lineage inheritance of his! And he felt that he was powerful. Nevertheless, he could not win this battle today.
‘If not for 80% of my heart energy being influenced, how would I not be able to destroy these petals.’ Scarlet-Browed Mountain Master gritted his teeth. Closely following that, he looked at the white-robed teenager just outside the many rotating translucent black flower petals.
He was defeated.
Even though he was not willing to accept it, he understood deep in his heart that the illusory realm was also part of Xue Ying’s strength. The other party did not rely on any secret treasures at all!
‘He is indeed amazing.’ Xue Ying looked afar and could not help but praise the other party, ‘He might be completely suppressed by me, and even though he could not kill his way out of the nine-petaled flowers, the destruction of the nine-petaled flowers could not injure him at all. His pair of weapons are great at defending, and his attainments in void-ification are quite high too–it seems much higher than mine?’
Xue Ying felt that his void-ification methods were quite formidable already.
After all, he had reached the 50th level of Walker’s Hidden Secret and also studied the inheritance left behind by Monarch Nine Cloud and the scaled armor left behind by General Mo Gu, allowing Xue Ying’s current void-ification technique to be quite formidable. But it seemed he was still slightly weaker than Scarlet-Browed Mountain Master.
