Chapter 1156 – Xue Ying Fighting Black Sovereign King
Above a luxurious residence spanning across a huge distance, a black-robed figure appeared. He abruptly punched downwards.
The direction where the fist blasted created ripples. Those ripples started disintegrating every single object they met. Even the stable palace hall began breaking internally—the arrays were destroyed, and the palace hall started collapsing. The two Primal Chaos cultivators that were responsible for guarding it looked around in terror. “Hua, hua”, the two of them broke into fine pieces silently! Firstly, Black Sovereign King was too cold and too lazy to care about these Primal Chaos experts. Secondly, Xue Ying was ruthless! He treated most innocent creatures equally and with gentleness. Nevertheless, Xue Ying did not have the same treatment toward these devils.
His figure flashed, appearing in that collapsing palace hall from the sky to grab that odd ugly tree.
Clearly, all the cities that were suffering from the disaster originated from that mysterious odd tree and the black crystals inlaid on it.
At the point when he uprooted the tree, the dull black fog that pervaded this city began dissipating. It led to the experts who had rushed over because of the battle disturbances to look with astonishment.
“The black fog is dissipating?”
“Is it because the residence that is the origin of the disaster has been destroyed? Who is that black-robed young man?” Many experts were watching carefully from the distance. Just like the two cities that were saved by Xue Ying, they experienced the same catastrophe for 10 million years and knew that the residence was the origin for everything. But just like the rest, they could not shake that residence at all! But now, everything had changed.
Xue Ying looked up above him. A figure appeared. It was a cold, emotionless male garbed in a luxurious black robe. A saber could be seen by his waist too. This person was Black Sovereign King.
Black Sovereign King did not disguise himself this time. He understood that after unleashing his strength, given the top-graded weapon he had and his unique combat style, others would easily find out who he was. Hence, there was no point to hide his identity.
“Is that the Black Sovereign King from Primogenitor Ancient Nation?”
“Mn, it seems like he is the legendary Black Sovereign King.” This city contained many knowledgeable and experienced experts, and recognized some of the legendary experts in Realm Heart Great Land! Since Black Sovereign King did not conceal his identity, these Unity Realm cultivators naturally recognized him.
Black Sovereign King looked down at Xue Ying. He roared with fury: “Who are you? Are you the one who started the disasters in the surrounding cities?”
Xue Ying was startled.
The thief calling others a thief?
“Senior Black Sovereign King, this black-robed senior is the one who resolved the origin of the disaster. He is the one that saved our city.” There were Unity Realm experts who immediately shouted out in response.
“Saved?” Black Sovereign King looked down at the shattered residence. He sneered, “For you to produce an attack of this strength, you are at least a Cosmos God. There are no Cosmos Gods I do not recognize in the Realm Heart Great Land! What shameful things are you exactly planning to do for you to conceal your identity? Or are you scheming something?”
“Scheming something?” Xue Ying guffawed with a shake of his head.
“Maybe it’s you who is casting your secret technique that engulfs the entire city into a nightmare. Now that you are done with your secret technique, you even deliberately went out to save the city? No matter what, in a while, after I capture you, I’ll find out what’s your actual identity and see how you are planning to explain your actions!” Black Sovereign King spoke with justice. The moment he finished speaking, he pulled the saber by his waist.
A dark blade light immediately descended from the world. It was like a black curtain spreading over toward the direction of Xue Ying.
Xue Ying stood at his original position watching that blade light as it came calmly. He extended both his hands, lightly slapping against the incoming dark blade light.
Numerous spatial layers immediately stacked before his hands. The dark blade light destroyed space after space. As it destroyed the last layer of space, only 20% to 30% of its original power was left. In the end, it merely forced Xue Ying backward, causing him to plow through an enormous gouge about 500 kilometers long before he stopped.
“You actually have the power of a peak Cosmos God? I wonder which Paragon Master are you? There are only a few Paragon Masters in the Realm Heart Great Land, why the need to hide your identity?” Black Sovereign King coldly sneered. As he spoke, he immediately sent another blade over.
“Hua hua hua!”
Consecutive blade lights were sent. They were either overbearing and tyrannical, or they came stealthily from the dark. For a moment, Xue Ying was filled with darkness. He could not see any light at all.
“Protection.” Xue Ying put his palms together before his chest. A spot of light sparked from his palms that gradually spread outwards. It formed a layer of light protection.
No matter how the dark blade light struck Xue Ying—regardless if they were overbearing, cunning, queer, or penetrative… the light protection withstood all incoming attacks for half a breath of time.
“What a formidable Dao of Void expert. It seems he is quite good at defending. There are only these few Dao of Void Paragon Masters in the Realm Heart Great Land. His battle style is quite similar to that ‘Great Void Paragon’ from Sky Towering Ancient Nation. But Sky Towering Ancient Nation shouldn’t be that daring to intervene in this matter.” Black Sovereign King began guessing as he let out his attacks.
Half a breath later.
The light protection shattered. At the juncture that Black Sovereign King broke the light protection, he immediately teleported to the side of Xue Ying and began close combat.
“Chi chi chi!”
The cunning dark blade light came frantically.
Xue Ying casually brandished his palms around him. Every palm generated numerous spatial layers. Even though it seemed Black Sovereign King initiated a close combat battle, yet in reality, the distance between every blade he sent was incredibly far from Xue Ying. They had to cross through countless spatial pockets before arriving where Xue Ying was. And this had greatly diminished the power of those blades.
“Ding.” Xue Ying who was originally focusing on defending suddenly jabbed out his finger at a random spot.
Unseen ripples began penetrating through the spatial obstacles and transmitted onto the body of Black Sovereign King.
Black Sovereign King’s body trembled momentarily. His expression changed slightly before roaring: “You are quite cunning!”
Xue Ying did not answer. He continued exchanged moves, though, in his heart, he thought: ‘This Black Sovereign King could easily resist against this technique that penetrates directly into his fleshy body. It seems I have to forgo the first plan!’
He only had a single opportunity to utilize his killing move!
The moment he felt the threat of death, Black Sovereign King would definitely escape. If there were more powerful experts behind him, they would definitely come to save him.
Hence, before he executed his killing strike, Xue Ying had to ascertain the exact baseline of Black Sovereign King. As for those intelligence reports which he got from the outer world? They could only be used as a reference. After all, a powerful Paragon Master might just have many survival trump cards.
‘He is truly hard to deal with! His defenses are too high! If I don’t use my absolute move, I can’t force him to reveal his identity.’ Black Sovereign King squinted.
In the next instant, darkness began engulfing the place, wrecking apart the spatial pockets created by Xue Ying’s palms. It immediately swept against the abdomen of Xue Ying. “Sou”, Xue Ying was forced into a stream of light as he flew backward into the sky. An enormous wound was formed on his abdomen. This immense impact actually made Xue Ying vomit fresh blood.
“Black Sovereign King, you have hidden quite deeply.” A hoarse voice was heard from Xue Ying.
“Haha, everything is half-truths. Let me see who exactly are you!” Black Sovereign King had completely turned mad.
Xue Ying was shocked.
During the 12th stage, he had personally witnessed the strength of Black Sovereign King. But it seemed this powerful blade executed by Black Sovereign King had far surpassed his expectations.
Naturally, the enormous wound formed on his abdomen and spurting of blood were all deliberately acted out by Xue Ying! He controlled his fleshy body to tear out a wound just so as to beguile the enemy. Otherwise, given his current terrifying fleshy body, even that Chaotic Origin Lifeform imprisoned in the Three Fire Prison Realms Cauldron, ‘Myriad Tentacles Dragon Son’, could merely injure him. Comparing Black Sovereign King with the ‘Myriad Tentacles Dragon Son’, he was very much weaker.
If Xue Ying did not pretend to be weak, he could simply stand there and let Black Sovereign King attack him however he wanted! And Xue Ying’s skin could not break at all!
But that would simply frighten Black Sovereign King so much that Xue Ying could no longer execute his plans.
“Sou sou sou…”
One could only see as the heavily injured Xue Ying created several other avatars around him.
“Haha, all Dao of Void experts have avatars. You have finally unleashed your nine great avatars?” Black Sovereign King did not find it puzzling. He then killed his way over while forming 18 bodies at the same time.
‘Shadow Incarnations? He could actually maintain 18 of them?’ Xue Ying was once again startled.
It appeared that Black Sovereign King had become much stronger than when he was at the Realm Heart God Palace.
The number of Shadow Incarnations and the power of his attacks.
“Pu pu pu…”
The 18 Black Sovereign Kings jointly surrounded Xue Ying. But the other Shadow Incarnations of his were very ordinary in strength. Only his true body was sufficiently powerful! His true body could always switch positions with his Shadow Incarnations, allowing Black Sovereign King’s offense to be unpredictable.
Even though Xue Ying had nine great avatars, he still suffered from the incoming attacks. At the same time, he was doing his best to retaliate.
Ultimately, with nine avatars, if he was lucky enough, he could occasionally strike the true body of Black Sovereign King.
A wound was torn on the surface of Black Sovereign King’s body, revealing the pitch-black bones within. The bones were covered in thick dark light.
‘The Great Cleaving Technique doesn’t seem appropriate either.’ Xue Ying thought, ‘It seems I can only begin my second plan.’
After several bouts of close combat battles, and after trying out some of the weaker techniques, Xue Ying discovered that the body of Black Sovereign King was quite formidable. His external fleshy body was relatively sturdy, and his inner organs were quite powerful too. Hence, Xue Ying could only take the gamble with his second plan—the plan that seemed to be the most hopeful of them all. He was about 30% to 40% confident. This was much higher than he once expected.
No other choice. The strength and fleshy body of Black Sovereign King were both stronger than what he once knew!
“All your nine avatars wield final realm strength? What top-graded secret treasure did you acquire to augment all nine avatars simultaneously?” Black Sovereign King became more interested. Currently, he held the upper hand and was having it easy.
