Chapter 1215 – Acheron Blood Sea
Above the Luo River, the waves were still surging tumultuously, but the tides had finally turned. The menacing three Earthly Sovereigns from the Blood God Clan were now trapped by a huge spiritual array and haunted by an elite army.
The only person who could stand in front of Mu Chen was Xue Yi. However, Xue Yi did not want to be the one to confront such a formidable opponent.
Bright purple gold light rose from above the Luo River, as a purple gold silhouette stood behind Mu Chen. It was not as tall and huge as other Sovereign Celestial Appearances, but the silhouette’s purple gold light emanated a mysterious and immortal-like aura. This was naturally Mu Chen’s Immortal Golden Body.
Mu Chen stood before the Immortal Golden Body, his eyes staring straight at Xue Yi, who was breaking out in a cold sweat. He then asked nonchalantly, “Didn’t’ you tell me not to try to escape?”
When he heard this, Xue Yi’s face suddenly paled, then turned green. In the face of Mu Chen’s mockery, he was obviously ashamed and angry. But, what really shocked him was the spiritual array and the battle array previously, which had been completely suppressed by Mu Chen’s aura!
“You fool, entangle him! As long as Xue Tong and Xue Shou break out, his death will surely come!” A roar of rage rang out like thunder, emitted from Xue Lingzi’s lungs.
After hearing Xue Lingzi’s roar, Xue Yi finally recovered his lucidity, freeing himself from Mu Chen’s suppression. Mu Chen was not to be underestimated, but Xue Yi could at least arrange a spiritual array and control his fighting spirit at the same time.
If he focused, no matter if it was a spiritual array or an elite army, it was enough to counteract a true Lower Earthly Sovereign and gain a great advantage. Unfortunately, he could not manage to concentrate.
Therefore, he found that it was absolutely impossible for an Ancestral Master’s Spiritual Array, which is temporarily left alone, to trap an Earthly Sovereign long enough to produce any worthy effects! The same was true of the elite army.
In the face of Xue Tong and Xue Shou’s full attack, they would not last. Moreover, once the two broke out, they could join hands again. No matter how many tricks Mu Chen had up his sleeve, he would be in a desperate situation.
Clearly, it was not possible to clash with three Earthly Sovereigns of the same rank as him, so Mu Chen decided to use the power of the spiritual array and army to break up their strengths.
That is to say, as long as Xue Yi stay entangled with Mu Chen, he could buy time for Xue Tong and Xue Shou to break out! Then, they could truly win!
At the thought of this, Xue Yi’s expression turned cold, while his previous panic completely dissipated. He raised his head to look at Mu Chen with a chilling glance.
Xue Yi then said, “It seems that your plan is not as perfect as you thought.”
“Are you sure you can make it until then?” Mu Chen looked at Xue Yi, who seemed to have restored his confidence.
Xue Yi’s glance turned grave as he sneered at Mu Chen. “I was fearful of your spiritual and battle arrays. Now, I don’t even want to beat you. But, if I want to stop you for a while, I could. I think you may be overestimating yourself.”
As Mu Chen finished speaking, a glowing blood red spiritual energy burst out of his body, then turned into a monumental figure of blood. That blood-like shadow donned an exceptionally dark red Kasaya, which was a patchwork outer vestment that was worn by Buddhist monks. It emanated a strong stench of blood and rot.
Meanwhile, cracks appeared in the surrounding space, as if the space had been corroded. This was the Sovereign Celestial Body that was practiced by Xue Yi, the Blood Kasaya Celestial Body.
It was a Celestial Body that was ranked highly in the Blood God Clan, as well as being ranked 51st on the List of 99 Sovereign Celestial Bodies. Clearly, Xue Yi’s confidence was supported by this strength.
The Blood Kasaya Celestial Body stood tall, while the aura of blood permeated the space. Even the sky turned a crimson red shade. Compared to the Blood Kasaya Celestial Body, which was 10,000 feet tall, the Immortal Golden Body was completely dwarfed.
The crowd could not help but murmur about this scene. After all, the Sovereign Celestial Appearance was basically determined by its own spiritual power. Normally, the greater the Sovereign Celestial Appearance was, the greater its ability to absorb more of the world’s spiritual power became. At the same time, its power could also grow.
After Xue Yi moved to appear on the Blood Kasaya Celestial Body’s shoulder, he looked down at the Immortal Golden Body behind Mu Chen and sneered. “It seems that the Ancestral Master’s Spiritual Array and the task of maintaining control over the army have consumed a lot of your spiritual energy.”
Mu Chen only smiled after hearing his comment. It was apparent that he had no interest in Xue Yi’s petty words. He moved and landed on top of the Immortal Golden Body’s shoulder, then smiled at Xue Yi and said, “Make the best out of your time then.”
His nonchalance infuriated Xue Yi, as his cocky attitude was humiliating to him. Mu Chen’s was an attitude that he had not seen in years!
“I would like to see you when they break out later, as I wonder if you will still be as arrogant then?” Xue Yi smiled with rage, then conjured up seals with both of his hands.
As he opened his mouth, blood red torrents roared out of it, then immediately transformed into a blood red sea. Within the sea of blood, skeletons floated eerily, while emanating a chilling aura.
“Acheron Blood Sea!” Xue Yi yelled, while he glared at Mu Chen.
Then, with a wave of his hand, the blood sea surged. He did not show any mercy, immediately dealing a fatal blow.
This Acheron Blood Sea was a famous move in the Blood God Clan. To achieve this skill, one had to first commit many brutal killings, using their blood to converge into the sea. Then, the blood would be refined by a black magic within the Acheron Blood Sea. This was possible because the seawater had an extremely powerful corrosive force, which was especially fatal to Sovereign Celestial Appearances.
Over the years, Xue Yi had fought with numerous Lower Earthly Sovereigns. Some of his opponents’ Sovereign Celestial Bodies had fallen into the Acheron Blood Sea and had instantly been utterly corroded.
As the sea of blood roared across the sky, everyone’s eyelids twitched. They were apparently quite familiar with the Blood God Clan’s evil super power.
The Acheron Blood Sea descended from the sky and enveloped Mu Chen and his Immortal Golden Body. The tides continued to roll, drowning the Immortal Golden Body within them.
Seeing this scene, everyone became tense. Those who were clear about how formidable this super power was were horrified, as many Sovereigns had already fallen prey to its evil techniques over the years.
“Haha, what a conceited fellow!” Seeing Mu Chen and his Sovereign Celestial Appearance engulfed by the Acheron Blood Sea, Xue Yi laughed maliciously.
Using this technique, he had, over the years, gained the advantage in his dealings with Sovereigns at the same level. Those who underestimated it had all paid a heavy price in the end.
At this point, it seemed that this Mu Chen apparently believed that his tactics were not weak, thus, he had not even taken the slightest gesture of evading Xue Yi’s attack. In the end, Mu Chen was enveloped by the Acheron Blood Sea!
This fool would surely regret this act!
Amid Xue Yi’s cackling, the waves of Acheron Blood Sea continued to roll madly, while the sea’s waters’ corrosive force erupted to the extreme. Even the sky above this region was shattered.
The Acheron Blood Sea roared with rage, but gradually, Xue Yi’s cackle began to freeze. This was because he vaguely felt that something was wrong. The Acheron Blood Sea seemed to become shallow at a rate that was visible to the naked eye.
Hmm? What’s going on?
Xue Yi’s expression changed, while doubt flashed in his eyes. He was silent for quite awhile. Then, he gnashed his teeth, then sucked in a breath to draw the Acheron Blood Sea back into his body.
He had nourished and cultivated the Acheron Blood Sea for many years in order to achieve this magnitude. If he lost it here, it would be even more painful than cutting his own flesh!
However, as Xue Yi triggered his black magic with the intention of absorbing the Acheron Blood Sea back into himself, he suddenly felt that there was a suction force that was resisting him. Under that suction force, the Acheron Blood Sea rolled backwards at a swift speed.
In just a few moments, the originally monstrous Acheron Blood Sea shrank gradually, revealing Mu Chen and the Immortal Golden Body within it. Mu Chen stood on the Immortal Golden Body’s shoulders, a cryptic smile on his face.
The Immortal Golden Body under his feet, had its mouth wide open. Clearly, this was where that terrible suction had originated from! Under that kind of suction, the majestic Acheron Blood Sea was absorbed into its mouth!
Upon seeing this, everyone’s eyes widened in shock.
Who would have thought that the Blood God Clan’s prized Acheron Blood Sea would not only fail to corrode Mu Chen’s Sovereign Celestial Appearance, but would instead be swallowed by it!
Xue Yi looked at the scene with a pale face. Meanwhile, Xue Lingzi, who was a distance away, stared at the scene in shock, completely dumbfounded.
The Immortal Golden Body swallowed the Acheron Blood Sea. Suddenly, a blood pearl that was shrouded in purple gold light rose up, which Mu Chen immediately caught in his palm.
After grabbing the blood pearl that contained the Acheron Blood Sea, he looked up at the appalled Xue Yi and smiled. He then threw the pearl at him and asked, “Is this important to you? I’ll give it back to you then.”
However, when Xue Yi saw the blood pearl being thrown back at him, his face twisted drastically and goosebumps appeared on his skin. He then screamed and retreated madly, as if he had just seen a ghost.
This was because, in that moment, Xue Yi noticed that his bond with the Acheron Blood Sea had been severed completely!
