Volume 1 –
Chapter 806 – Victory!
Sparkles of light slowly fell from the horizon and the entire region was quiet. Everyone had a dumbfounded gaze as they looked at the horizon.
Their gazes were filled with disbelief and shock. Clearly, no one expected such an outcome.
It was the Netherworld Prince!
A ferocious person who ranked second on the Dragon-Phoenix Record. Aside from Fang Yi, he was basically someone that was looked up to by many geniuses. Even someone as powerful as Liu Yan and those on the same level as him, Su Biyue and the rest, were fearful when they faced the Netherworld Prince.
Although Mu Chen’s strength was just at Third Grade Sovereign, in the previous confrontation, Liu Yan, Su Biyue and the rest definitely wouldn’t be able to receive such an attack if they were in Mu Chen’s place!
Then again, the reality was always filled with miracles…
Every gaze in this region was looking at the slender and youthful figure with dumbfounded expressions. The silence lasted for a long time, before it was abruptly replaced with an uproar.
Up in the sky, Su Biyue, Hong Yu and Ding Xuan exchanged looks as a smear of shaken and bitter smiles appeared on their faces.
“This Mu Chen… is truly powerful.” Ding Xuan said. Even someone as fond of battles as him would have to admit how breathtaking Mu Chen’s performance was. He believed that if he was in Mu Chen’s place, even if he managed to keep his life, he would have to pay a considerable price for it.
“It wasn’t a fluke for Liu Yan to be defeated by him.” Su Biyue and Hong Yu nodded their heads. If they thought that Liu Yan had underestimated Mu Chen, thus, losing to him in the end, they now understood that Mu Chen was, indeed, in possession of terrifying strength. The strength that could defeat Liu Yan.
“Looks like after this Dragon-Phoenix Record, Mu Chen’s fame will resound throughout the entire Northern Region…”
While the entire region was enveloped in a commotion, Mu Chen, who was in the sky, wasn’t affected by it. His face was extremely pale. Clearly, executing the Mandala Heavens Annihilation Light earlier was a huge exhaustion to him.
Although the Mandala Heavens Annihilation Light managed to resist the killing move from the Netherworld Prince, Mu Chen’s body did not loosen up and his sharp gaze was directed at the distant Netherworld Prince. However, the latter’s indifferent face was replaced with an ashen look, even his gaze was colder than before.
Clearly, this failure had thoroughly enraged this scheming and ferocious person.
He couldn’t believe the scene before him. The killing move that he was so confident in was actually resisted by a Third Grade Sovereign!
This was something that not even Liu Yan, Su Biyue and the rest could achieve!
“Haha, I have really misjudged you this time…” The Netherworld Prince’s gaze was so sharp, it was as if he wanted to pierce through Mu Chen. He then said in a deep voice that was filled with anger.
“However, the previous counterattack must have exhausted all the Spiritual Energy in your body, right? So, what can you do next?!” The Netherworld Prince’s tone was eerie as the killing intent that surged out of his body had practically lowered the temperature in this region.
As the Netherworld Prince was filled with rage in his heart, a sharp bark abruptly rang out from another battlefield. That yell caused the Netherworld Prince’s face to slightly change as he immediately raised his head to look over at that direction. In the battlefield of Cai Xiao and Fang Yi, there was the suction force coming from the rainbow vortex at this moment and fine cracks were appearing on the lotus beneath Fang Yi.
On the lotus, Fang Yi’s face was abnormally solemn as a vast amount of Spiritual Energy endlessly poured from his body and into the lotus in an attempt to strengthen his defence.
At this moment, he was bitterly whining in his heart. Earlier, his attention was focused on the battlefield of the Netherworld Prince and Mu Chen. But who could have expected that the Netherworld Prince’s killing move would actually be resisted by Mu Chen. Undoubtedly, it left him shaking in his heart, causing a small gap in his control over his Spiritual Energy to appear.
With Cai Xiao’s keen perception, even if Fang Yi had only shown a small gap, it was still grasped by her. When the suction force swept out, it caused cracks to appear on the lotus, thus causing it to lose in power. Although Fang Yi had attempted to immediately remedy the situation, he had already lost the decisive opportunity…
In such a confrontation, if he loses the decisive opportunity, it was enough for him to be defeated.
As a result, the rainbow vortex was swiftly revolving and the vast amount of Spiritual Energy around Fang Yi was endlessly being devoured. Even the cracks on the lotus were spreading. He clearly couldn’t last much longer.
At such a moment, even someone as calm as Fang Yi couldn’t help yelling at the Netherworld Prince. Because if the Netherworld Prince still didn’t get rid of Mu Chen, he wouldn’t be able to last any longer.
Hearing Fang Yi’s yell, the Netherworld Prince’s gaze had changed as well. Thereafter, he clenched his teeth, causing a distortion in space with a stomp of his foot and his figure disappeared.
But when the Netherworld Prince’s figure disappeared, a massive pair of phoenix wings unfolded behind Mu Chen. With a single flap, his figure had already appeared a few thousand feet away.
In that instant, when his figure disappeared, the Netherworld Prince’s figure had appeared in Mu Chen’s original spot. He looked at Mu Chen, who had been on guard against him and escaped far away, with an ashen expression.
Evidently, the latter had already expected his actions.
“Looks like you guys will be the ones losing.” Mu Chen looked at the Netherworld Prince from afar as an arc rose on his pale face.
“Why? You’re going to run like a mouse now?” The Netherworld Prince sneered. When he finished speaking, his figure had disappeared again.
Mu Chen’s figure flew towards the distance once again and faintly said, “Why bother using such psychological attacks?”
Mu Chen obviously knew that the Netherworld Prince was trying to force him to fight head-on. But why would Mu Chen be foolish enough to do it? Furthermore, after the earlier bitter battle, the Spiritual Energy in his body was no longer as robust as before. If he was to fight head-on with the Netherworld Prince right now, it would definitely be the most foolish of actions.
Right now, he only needed to drag the time and victory would side against them. That’s because he had sensed that the calm Fang Yi and the Netherworld Prince started to become anxious.
Precisely because the Netherworld Prince had lost his calm, Mu Chen could dodge his pursuit.
Up in the sky, two figures flashed, with one in pursuit, while the other fleeing. Although every single moment was dangerous, Mu Chen did not give the Netherworld Prince any opportunity to attack.
This pursuit and escape lasted a few rounds. Everyone could sense the extremely dense killing intent around the Netherworld Prince. His dark gaze practically wanted to tear Mu Chen apart.
It was another flicker when the Netherworld Prince’s figure suddenly stopped. He looked at Mu Chen with a dark gaze, causing the latter’s body to slightly tense up and put his guard on in his heart.
The Netherworld Prince did not launch any more attacks in anger, but deeply inhaled a mouthful of air, before the rage in his eyes gradually disappeared. He was, after all, an extraordinary person, so he knew that if he maintained his current state, it would be impossible for him to catch Mu Chen.
As the Netherworld Prince’s gaze gradually returned to indifference, Mu Chen’s heart shook. This fellow was indeed hard to deal with, since he could adjust his heart so quickly. The Netherworld Prince who was in his calm state was the most dangerous.
The Netherworld Prince cast a cold glance at Mu Chen, before abruptly forming seals with his hands. A dark light gushed from his body and turned into two blurry black figures.
The figure of the Netherworld Prince had also gradually turned blurry, becoming the same as the two that he had summoned.
The three black figures abnormally disappeared.
Mu Chen’s face changed and the phoenix wings behind him flapped, allowing him to swiftly retreat. He could sense a fatal danger currently sweeping over.
Just as Mu Chen burst in retreat, the space around him suddenly distorted. Space rippled around him from three directions, before the three figures appeared, sealing Mu Chen’s path of retreat.
“I’ll see how you are going to escape!”
The three figures eerily spoke as huge palm seals, along with torrential killing intent, enveloped towards Mu Chen. Judging from the looks of it, if he was struck by that attack, he would be gravely injured, even if he had the Dragon-Phoenix Physique.
Facing the Netherworld Prince’s sudden assault, Mu Chen’s eyes insanely flickered. He couldn’t retreat any further.
However, at the same time when the Netherworld Prince attacked, there was a shocking commotion that rang out in this region. That’s because, on another battlefield, the lotus beneath Fang Yi finally couldn’t resist the powerful suction force any longer and shattered with a bang.
When the lotus shattered, Fang Yi’s body was revealed under the suction force. At this moment, his body was being forcefully sucked over, moving towards the rainbow vortex.
Cai Xiao coldly looked at Fang Yi, who was shooting towards the direction of the vortex. The moment he was sucked into the vortex, he would definitely die and even his Spirit couldn’t escape from it!
Fang Yi struggled, but it was all in vain. At this point in time, even if he brought out his Sovereign Celestial Body, it would be a futile effort, since the rainbow vortex was too tyrannical.
Fang Yi’s face turned dark, no longer as calm as before, while looking at the rainbow vortex, which he was moving closer towards. The dangerous fluctuations emanating from it even made his scalp numb.
Fang Yi couldn’t help barking out in the end and clenched his teeth, before an ancient crimson jade appeared in his hand with a grasp. Thereafter, he crushed without any hesitation.
When the ancient jade shattered, the space around him violently distorted and formed into a spatial black hole that he was sucked into and disappeared.
“I, Fang Yi, will remember today’s humiliation and will definitely return it in the future!” When Fang Yi’s figure disappeared, his enraged voice resounded between the heavens and earth.
Countless experts were dumbfounded at this scene and couldn’t help sucking in a mouthful of cold air thereafter…
Fang Yi actually fled!
The ancient jade that he had crushed earlier was clearly a protection treasure given to him by the Divine Pavilion. After he crushed it, he was be able to escape through space. Right now, Fang Yi had probably already escaped from the Dragon-Phoenix Haven, which meant that he had also given up on the competition for the Dragon-Phoenix Inheritance…
Cai Xiao coldly looked at Fang Yi’s who had chosen to flee in the end, last location. In the next instant, her figure suddenly disappeared.
In another battlefield, the huge palms of the three shadows were about to land on Mu Chen. However, Mu Chen’s eyes, which were insanely flickering, had calmed down at this moment and a ridiculing arc rose on his lips towards the Netherworld Prince.
“I’m sorry, but we won.”
Hearing Mu Chen’s words, the Netherworld Prince was startled in his heart. A ruthless light flashed in his pupils. No matter what, he couldn’t let this brat go today!
Killing intent surged around the Netherworld Prince and the three huge palms swiftly headed towards Mu Chen’s head like bolts of lightning.
However, in that instant, when his palms were about to smash down, a cold hand was placed on his back, at the spot of his heart, and a bone-chilling voice entered his ears, which instantly caused him to freeze.
“Move a little more and you’ll die.”
