Volume 1 –
Chapter 843 – Xu Ba
Outside the valley on a lone peak, there were several figures standing with their hands placed behind their backs. Around this peak, there were innumerable figures standing on the air as boundless Battle Will swept out like an ocean that practically spread throughout this entire region.
Roughly looking at those silhouettes, it was a large amount that was close to ten thousand. Even amongst the Kings of the Great Havenlaw Domain, it was a troop that could be ranked at the front.
With such a scale gathered together, the Battle Will emitted from them was robust to a stunning degree. With the Battle Will spread out, it had completely enveloped the entire valley in something similar to a bird cage, trapping those within the valley. Not even a fly could escape.
“My Lord, the Blood Hawk Hall has been completely trapped within the valley. As long as you issue the order to attack, we’ll annihilate completely them!” A figure flew over to the peak and kneeled down to a single knee, then cupped his fists and respectfully said.
At the edge of the summit stood two figures. One of them was no stranger to Mu Chen, the one that had been forced to flee in a pathetic manner by Cai Xiao and also the Overlord of the Dragon-Phoenix Record, Fang Yi.
At the moment, Fang Yi wore white and still had a calm and tranquil bearing. There weren’t any traces of dejection, like he had back then when he was defeated. His gaze was bright and he had clearly grown stronger from his defeat. After all, someone that was showered with such great expectations by the Divine Pavilion was naturally someone with a firm temperament and would not lose his fighting spirit after one defeat. If that was the case, he would have been abandoned by the Divine Pavilion long ago.
Fang Yi stood with his hands placed behind his back, cultured like a scholar. Probably no one could recognize that he was the ferocious figure occupying the numero uno of the Dragon-Phoenix Record.
Standing beside Fang Yi was a middle-aged expert with a stunning demeanour. In contrast to Fang Yi’s elegance, he was emitting a cold ferocity with a gaze similar to that of a beast, fully unleashing his ferocious bearing that would strike fear in others.
He was donned in a black armour that was engraved with an Primordial Croc. The Croc stood on a mountain with a torrential ominous aura.
He was one of the Ten Mount Lords, Croc Mount’s Lord, Xu Ba!
Hearing the report from the subordinate, Xu Ba nodded his head and looked towards the valley with a ferocious light in his eyes and a sinister smile hanging on the corner of his lips. “The Blood Hawk Hall actually dared to compete with my Skycroc Mount for those ruins. Such wishful thinking, that Blood Hawk Troop actually dared to challenge my Skycroc Troop. Truly impudent.”
Fang Yi smiled beside him as he looked around this region. At this moment, there were countless amounts of people flying over from the distance. They were all attracted by the news of the battle between the Divine Pavilion and the Great Havenlaw Domain. After all, it was a battle between two peak forces and, regardless of the outcome, it would cause a huge quake.
“If Mount Lord Xu can devour this Blood Hawk Hall, I believe it will be a decent achievement. Furthermore, your name will also spread in this Hunting War.” Fang Yi lightly smiled.
Hearing Fang Yi’s words, Xu Ba laughed, filled with ferocity as he continued, “I have to thank you for this. If it wasn’t for you, we still wouldn’t have discovered these rats that dared to steal from us.”
“Although the Blood Hawk Hall is a caged bird, Mount Lord Xu still has to be cautious. The Blood Hawk King is an expert at the peak of the Fifth Grade Sovereign Realm. If he fights to the death, it will be troublesome.” Fang Yi reminded.
“The peak of the Fifth Grade Sovereign Realm?” A smear of disdain rose on the corner of Xu Ba’s lips as he continued, “Even amongst the Ten Mount Lords, such strength can only be ranked at the bottom. The Blood Hawk King is still not capable of escaping from my hands.”
Although he spoke such great words, Xu Ba clearly did not intend to drag the battle out. He waved his hand and was prepared to order an attack to completely annihilate the Blood Hawk Troop.
But just when he was about to wave his hand down, his and Fang Yi’s face suddenly changed as they abruptly turned their heads towards the northwest direction. The sky in that direction was trembling and a stunning Battle Will swiftly swept over like a storm.
Many hidden forces in this region had also sensed this and had directed their startled gazes over. This was clearly a little unexpected. They did not know who would dare to interfere in the battle between the Divine Pavilion and the Great Havenlaw Domain. If an ordinary force dared to interfere, they would definitely be attracting fire onto themselves.
Just when everyone had their attention directed over, a pitch-black curtain appeared in the distant horizon and innumerable whistling black silhouettes could be seen with boundless Battle Will spreading from their bodies. It was as if they had brought along a lightning storm that intimidated everyone when they arrived in this region.
“Who comes and dares to interfere in the matters of my Divine Pavilion!” Xu Ba looked at the approaching black army and narrowed his eyes. He must have sensed the vast Battle Will of that army; thus, he barked out with his voice that echoed in this region like thunder.
“Who is it?!”
In the sky outside this valley, the army that was close to ten thousand roared in an orderly fashion. Instantly, a terrifying Battle Will soared into the sky that caused changes to the sky and the earth to rumble.
Under this Battle Will, even a Sixth Grade Sovereign would have to avoid their spearheads!
However, the approaching army did not flutter. A slender figure appeared in front of that troop in a flash. The youth’s clear and bright laughter rang out, “Great Havenlaw Domain – Nine Nether Palace!”
“Nine Nether Palace!”
Every single warrior of the Nine Nether Troop had brilliant light bursting forth from their eyes as the vast Battle Will surged like waves, their voices were like thunder that endlessly rolled and shattered the Battle Will pressure from the Skycroc Troop.
In this region, the two terrifying Battle Wills each occupied half the sky, their Battle Wills facing off. It was so much so that even the sky was undulating with cracks spreading out.
“Nine Nether Palace?” Hearing the declaration, Xu Ba’s eyes flickered with shock. According to his knowledge, the Nine Nether Troop was ranked at the tail-end amongst the Great Havenlaw Domain. But judging from their current demeanour, they seemed to be even stronger than the Blood Hawk Troop!
Standing beside Xu Ba, the calm and tranquil Fang Yi lightly knitted his brows as his abstruse gaze fixed on the slender figure that stood in front of the Nine Nether Troop and faintly said, “Mount Lord Xu, your information is too outdated. That person is the tenth King of the Great Havenlaw Domain, Mu Chen. Right now, the Nine Nether Palace has two Kings, unrivalled in the Great Havenlaw Domain.”
Xu Ba was briefly stunned, before laughing out, “So it’s that young man whose name has been making waves in the Northern Region…”
Finishing his words, his eyes flared with ferocity as he eerily stared at Mu Chen’s figure and sinisterly smiled. “A brat who still reeks of milk dares to rescue someone? You’re truly overestimating your own abilities!”
Xu Ba’s voice rang out in this region, which attracted the gazes of many forces to be directed at Mu Chen. There was some curiosity in those gazes, since they had recently heard quite a bit of this familiar name.
Mu Chen and Nine Nether stood on the sky. When the latter heard Xu Ba’s voice, her gaze turned cold as boundless Spiritual Energy surged in her hands.
“I believe you must be the Croc Mount’s Lord, right?” Mu Chen faintly smiled as he looked at the extremely ferocious Xu Ba, before looking at Fang Yi, and cupped his fists.
“Brat, don’t try to worm your way into being friends with me. Swiftly get lost from here or I’ll involve you as well.” However, Xu Ba wasn’t the slightest courteous with his words. His tone was filled with ridicule and ruthlessness. Clearly, he did not place Mu Chen in his eyes.
Hearing his words, Mu Chen rubbed his nose and smiled. “Looks like there’s nothing to talk about between us.”
“Your courting death!” Xu Ba eerily said as he waved his hand. Instantly, five thousand of the Skycroc Troop separated from the army and a ferocious Battle Will soared into the sky.
In Xu Ba’s view, separating five thousand of the Skycroc Troop was sufficient to deal with the Nine Nether Troop, who was not even that amount. After all, the Blood Hawk Troop had barely lasted half an incense time and was defeated.
Right now, he had to deal with the Blood Hawk Troop in the valley first before having the Nine Nether Troop buried as well.
The Skycroc Troop streaked across the horizon as a crimson Battle Will swept across like a bloody ocean. As the Battle Will surged, it had turned into ten million pikes and shot towards the direction of the Nine Nether Troop.
Such an attack could even slaughter Fifth Grade Sovereigns.
Mu Chen raised his head, calmly watching the ten million pikes whistling over. He gently smiled and said, “Looks like you’re looking down on our Nine Nether Troop…”
He gently lifted his hand and waved it down.
The black tides burst out like a volcano, rising from the Nine Nether Troop. As the Nine Nether Battle Will took form, it had turned into a massive pair of black light wings and the edge of the wings looked so sharp that they could tear space apart…
Mu Chen flicked his finger and the black wings disappeared. No one could see it that clearly. All they could see was a light streaking across the horizon, destroying all the pikes in its path, reducing them to sparkles of light…
It was practically an all-powerful destruction!
Under countless shocked gazes, that light had flew across the horizon and struck against the Battle Will barrier that enveloped the valley.
In that instant of impact, the barrier that was formed from the Battle Will of the Skycroc Troop had instantly crumbled like glass.
With the destruction of the barrier, the Blood Hawk Troop that was in the valley was revealed. At this moment, even they were looking at the stunning attack from the Nine Nether Troop with shock.
Xu Ba’s face drastically changed; even Fang Yi, who stood beside him, couldn’t help narrowing his eyes. They must have been shocked by the Nine Nether Troop’s Battle Will attack.
Who could have thought that the Nine Nether Troop, which was barely five thousand strong, would have such terrifying Battle Will?!
Under their shocked gazes, Mu Chen lightly smiled as he looked at Xu Ba, whose face was ashened, and his laughter rang out in this region that no one dared to belittle.
“Now, can we have a proper talk?”
