Volume 1 –
Chapter 787 – Golden-armoured Guardian
The violent Spiritual Energy impact wrecked havoc, causing space to distort. Above the super Dragon-Phoenix Pool stood a golden figure with golden light coiling around him, emitting a powerful oppressive pressure.
It had a humanoid figure, covered in heavy golden armour. The golden light on this armour was dazzling. It was made of dragon scales, being extremely firm and indestructible. It held onto a golden warspear with dragon-like veins on its arm. On his wide hand, there were sharp claws that looked like daggers with a cold light flickering on them.
It quietly stood, enveloped within the golden armour, revealing its golden pupils that didn’t have any emotions in them, and looked at Mu Chen and Cai Xiao with indifference.
Mu Chen’s gaze was extremely grave as he looked at the golden-armoured figure, before he appeared beside Cai Xiao. “Are you alright?”
His heart was clearly a little shaken because he knew how powerful and mysterious Cai Xiao was. Along the way, there were only a few in number that could rival her. But right now, she was in the disadvantage when she fought with the golden-armoured figure, so how could Mu Chen not be shocked?
Cai Xiao gently shook her head, before her gaze was directed at the golden-armoured figure as well with a smear of graveness on her alluring face. “Looks like he should be the guardian here. Be cautious, he very powerful.”
Mu Chen nodded his head. Even someone as powerful as Cai Xiao was at a disadvantage, so if it was him, he probably wouldn’t be able to endure it.
“Intruder, leave this place or die!”
When the golden figure was looking at Mu Chen and Cai Xiao, its eyes rid of expression, a hoarse voice suddenly resounded. Although the voice was piercingly sharp, the killing intent contained within made Mu Chen’s heart tremble.
“It actually has intelligence?” Mu Chen and Cai Xiao exchanged a look and saw the shock in each other’s eyes. Although beasts were extremely ferocious in this Dragon-Phoenix Haven, they did not have much intelligence, not to mention about speaking in human tongue.
Clearly, this golden-armoured Guardian wasn’t ordinary. After possessing intelligence, its fighting power would definitely rise along with it as well. Thus, this was the most headache-inducing matter for Mu Chen.
The golden-armoured Guardian pointed its warspear at the two as torrential killing intent that was nearly substantial swept up a hurricane, it was extremely dreadful.
Mu Chen looked at Cai Xiao as the two of them frowned their brows. They finally managed to reach here with great effort, and now, the treasure was just before their eyes. How was it so easy to make them leave now?
“A humanoid beast without any blood and flesh also cares to be arrogant.” Cai Xiao coldly snorted as her gaze locked onto the golden-armoured Guardian. In her hand, a seven-coloured Spiritual Energy instantly poured out like tidal waves.
Killing intent surged in the eyes of the golden-armoured Guardian. It did not speak anymore and took a step forth. Instantly, space distorted and it turned into a golden bolt of lightning that flew towards Cai Xiao.
Cai Xiao coldly snorted as a seven-coloured longsword appeared in her hand with a grasp. She went up without any hesitation, with her seven-coloured Spiritual Energy dying the space, making it gorgeous.
Two figures intertwined in the sky as a metallic sound rang out. As the spear and sword clashed, a dreadful Spiritual Energy impact swept out like a hurricane, tearing the heavy layers of clouds apart.
It was an extremely intense confrontation.
Mu Chen’s gaze was grave as he looked at the intense battle up in the sky. For the time being, he couldn’t tell who had the upper hand, but the killing aura of the golden-armoured Guardian was too overwhelming; it was like a slaughtering machine. So if this battle carried on, the outcome was really unpredictable.
Up in the sky, the spear tip and sword tip accurately clashed. Because of the terrifying energy, even the body of the spear and sword had bent, but then instantly recovered. However, the energy that burst out instantly sent the two of them flying.
The two figures were shot into two mountain peaks above the dragon and phoenix heads by the terrifying force and the entire mountains crumble with falling stones.
Spiritual Energy swept around Cai Xiao, reducing the falling rocks into dust. She held onto her longsword, with her sword tip slanting down. There was an additional hint of sharpness in her eyes, since she never thought that the golden-armoured figure would be so tough to deal with.
According to her estimations, the strength of that golden-armoured figure should be at Fifth Grade Sovereign, roughly comparable to the amount of strength that she could use. However, the latter was using a set of golden armour made from dragon scales, which possessed an extremely shocking defence.
Cai Xiao clenched her teeth. If it wasn’t because of her physique and having lots of seals in her body by her father, it would be a flip of hand for her to destroy that golden-armoured guardian.
But it was a pity…
The mountain far away crumbled down and large stones were sent flying. A golden figure had slowly and heavily walked out. The golden-armoured guardian had its emotionless eyes fixed on Cai Xiao as he strode out. Golden runes appeared on his armour made of dragon scales, and at the same time, a light was gathering at his rear, vaguely forming a huge pair of phoenix wings.
As the phoenix wings flapped, the land that it stood on instantly shattered as cracks spread out like spiderwebs, which stretched out a few thousand feet.
Mu Chen and Cai Xiao’s face instantly changed as they sense the golden-armoured Guardian’s strength was actually rising at an astonishing speed.
“That’s the True Dragon Runes and True Phoenix Wings…” Mu Chen stared at the dragon runes on the armour of the golden-armoured Guardian’s dragon-scaled armour, as well as the pair of wings on its back, with disbelief in his eyes. Those were the strengths belonging to the True Dragon and Phoenix, but why would they all appear on its body? Shouldn’t those two powers be incompatible like fire and water?
“It is a creature born from absorbing the Blood Essences of the True Dragon and Phoenix, thus also possessing their strength in its body.” Cai Xiao spoke out in a solemn voice.
“What should we do?” Mu Chen immediately asked. Judging from the current looks of the situation, the golden-armoured Guardian seemed to have been forced by Cai Xiao to execute its killing move. The Spiritual Energy fluctuations emanating from it was quite terrifying.
“Help me obstruct it for a while. I need a little time, can you do it?” Cai Xiao locked her brows together as her gaze flickered while looking at Mu Chen.
Being stared by her, Mu Chen felt that even the blood flowing in his body had quickened. However, his gaze was constantly changing.
Because he knew how powerful this golden-armoured Guardian before him was. It wasn’t something that Liu Yan could compare to, an opponent with such strength was simply too powerful. Thus, he didn’t know if he could truly obstruct it.
He looked at Cai Xiao’s obsidian-like and brilliant pupils and deeply inhaled a mouthful of air. Facing her request, there was basically no man that could reject it.
Naturally, he also could not shrink back at this point in time.
Therefore, he lightly nodded his head when facing Cai Xiao’s gaze.
Looking at his response, Cai Xiao smiled. It was a smile that could topple kingdoms, before she slowly closed her eyes. When she closed her eyes, seven-coloured runes flashed on her body. Clearly, he knew that if she didn’t utilise some hidden cards, it wouldn’t be possible to deal with the golden-armoured Guardian.
As the seven-coloured runes burned around Cai Xiao, even this entire land showed faint trembles.
However, just when Cai Xiao was gathering her power, the golden-armoured Guardian stomped on the ground and charged over with earth-trembling pressure. It had an extremely swift speed, and as it flapped its wings, sand and stones flew out in every direction.
Mu Chen’s face slightly changed at the sight of this. This golden-armoured Guardian was rather cunning. It clearly sensed the threat coming from Cai Xiao. Therefore, it did not intend to give Cai Xiao any time to gather her power.
But Cai Xiao had her eyes closed at this moment, as if she couldn’t sense the golden-armoured Guardian, which was charging over.
Mu Chen’s face changed as he clenched his teeth and cursed. Shortly after, his gaze suddenly turned cold as he appeared before Cai Xiao with a flash. A boundless Spiritual Energy burst out from his body without any restraints. A golden light surged as the Great Solar Undying Body was instantly summoned by him, and at the same time, the Great Meru Demonic Pillar had appeared, tearing through the sky with a surging ominous aura.
The Great Solar Undying Body held onto the Great Meru Demonic Pillar as a golden light burst out in every direction. Thereafter, it smashed down towards the golden-armoured Guardian, which had pounced over without any leniency.
The earth cracked at this moment. However, the golden figure was unhindered. The phoenix wings behind its black suddenly stretched open. They were as sharp as blades as they clashed with the Great Meru Demonic Pillar.
The Spiritual Energy fluctuation swept out in gallops as the Great Meru Demonic Pillar was immediately sent flying away, leaving the hands of the Great Solar Undying Body’s control. The strength of the golden-armoured Guardian was actually so powerful and terrifying.
Mu Chen’s face was a little pale at this moment. However, contrarily, a cold light surged in his eyes, and with a will of his heart, the Great Solar Undying Body’s fists ruthlessly slammed towards the golden-armoured Guardian.
There weren’t any emotions in the eyes of the golden-armoured Guardian as the golden warspear in its hand trembled, turning into a light spear that shot out, directly inflicting cracks on the fist of the Great Solar Undying Body.
Its figure still charged out without any intent to stop, its golden pupils fixed on Cai Xiao. Clearly, it had not placed Mu Chen, who was obstructing it, in its eyes.
Mu Chen stood on the head of the Great Solar Undying Body as he looked at the golden light that flew past. He clenched his teeth as his gaze turned extremely ferocious. No matter what, he couldn’t let it go.
Mu Chen formed seals with his hands as a golden blazing sun surged on the centre of the brows and chest of the Great Solar Undying Body. Those two dazzling lights had combined together and charged into Mu Chen’s body.
“Nine Solar Energy – Two Solar Energies!”
The golden light was practically in liquid form as it enveloped Mu Chen’s figure.
As the golden light spread out, Mu Chen stomped his feet once again. In an instant, a draconic roar resounded as numerous golden dragon runes burrowed from his body and shrouded him.
“Ersatz Dragon Physique!”
Two powerful forces had practically been added to him. Right now, Mu Chen had the golden light and draconic runes revolving around him. It was an astonishing scene. He abruptly burst down in the next moment. He was like a descending war god at that moment.
Down below, the golden-armoured Guardian, who was charging down, suddenly froze as its emotionless eyes looked at the golden figure that was charging over for the first time.
Clearly, it had finally felt a little danger this time.
