Chapter 640: Slash and Kill
“Why? Are you not going to speak?”
The masked man’s silence made Zhulong’s gaze turn even colder.
“Third Inspector, you are responsible for the signing of the soul contracts with all the Heavenly Dao Union members. Previously, when people betrayed the Martial Alliance, it was you who chased them down. If I remember correctly, Jiang Yidao was one of those who escaped… ”
Despite being interrogated by Zhulong, the masked man only said calmly, “There are no means of removing the soul contract, but it might be possible that the Desolate race’s Queen has such means. I can’t answer your question.”
Zhulong’s brows pricked up. Indeed, soul contracts were categorically powerful or weak. A powerful soul contract could bind even peerless Great Emperors, while for the weak soul contracts that usually bound juniors, they could easily be removed by their seniors.
However, the Martial Alliance’s soul contract was extraordinary. To remove it?
Zhulong was unconvinced that such a person lurked in the present Tian Yuan world.
However, if it was the Desolate race’s former Queen, Jiang Xiaorou’s mother, Zhulong was unsure if she had the ability to remove the soul contract.
Zhulong stared at the masked man, as if his gaze penetrated him. However, the masked man remained calm, and he was not one bit flustered.
Yi Yun knew that even if he made the masked man give a reasonable explanation, it was still impossible for him to be cleared of all suspicions by Zhulong.
However, it no longer mattered. In the Soul Tomb, he was bound to engage in a bloody battle with Zhulong.
“Jiang Yidao, you traitor!” Gongsun Hong suddenly shouted.
He had an old grudge with Jiang Yidao, and now with new grudges piled on after his arm was destroyed by Jiang Yidao, his hate for Jiang Yidao had reached unprecedented heights.
“To think a shameless wretch like you has submitted to the Desolate race. You attacked the Martial Alliance to save the Desolate race’s witch girl! Why? Have you become the Desolate race’s son-in-law? Were you smitten by this witch girl? To bend over just like that, be wary of all your male vitality being sucked dry by the Desolate race’s witch girl, eventually becoming a dry corpse. Hahaha!”
“However, you won’t have the chance of becoming a dry corpse. To not know the meaning of death, and act so absurdly in front of Lord Zhulong, today will be the day of your death. I’m waiting to see your cultivation crippled, and suffer death by dismembering of the heart. Then your soul will be extracted to be tortured for a millennium!” Gongsun Hong cursed.
Only in this situation, with so many Reincarnators present and Zhulong’s protection did Gongsun Hong dare to curse Yi Yun so blatantly.
He had been reduced to a wretched state by Jiang Yidao to the point of having his lungs burst from anger. This anger that was penting up had already formed a mental demon in him. Be it his future cultivation or breaking through realms, they would all be affected.
He knew that he was no match for Jiang Yidao, so he could only place his hopes on Zhulong torturing Jiang Yidao through various methods.
Yi Yun looked at Gongsun Hong, as his eyes suddenly flashed with killing intent, “Die!”
When Yi Yun said that single word, he suddenly strung the bow and shot out an arrow!
The bowstring trembled with a tumultuous explosion!
Yi Yun was too fast. Nearly no one saw how he pulled the bow open. All they saw was a blinding divine beam. All the Heaven Earth Yuan Qi from the surroundings was swept up by this arrow!
The arrow emitted a dazzling golden glow that seemed like a streaking sun!
Gongsun Hong was greatly alarmed. He never expected Yi Yun to ignore the many Reincarnators present, shooting an arrow past all of them to destroy him!
The arrow beam was too fast and Gongsun Hong had no time to react. At that moment, a bellow resounded in the valley.
As the arrow was enroute to Gongsun Hong, a black figure appeared out of nowhere, grabbing the arrow!
At the same moment the black shadow appeared, a black dragon roared behind him.
The black dragon opened its jaws and swiped its claws. The scales on its body were like black gemstones that looked extremely lifelike.
Everyone was shocked. Zhulong was the one to make a move?
Zhulong grabbed the golden arrow like an osprey grabbing a swimming golden fish. No matter how the golden arrow tried to inch forward, it could not escape Zhulong’s palm.
The energy in the golden arrow exploded as the arrow was destroyed. Then the black dragon behind Zhulong opened its jaws, devouring all the golden energy.
And at that moment…
A saber beam flashed past, much faster than the arrow beam from before.
The time between the arrow beam and the saber beam was separated by less than a thousandth of a second. Zhulong was astonished because it was already too late for him to stop the saber beam.
The saber beam whistled as it slashed at Gongsun Hong!
“Ah, ah, ah!”
Seeing the saber flying at him, Gongsun Hong’s pupils constricted. He knew that it was impossible for him to withstand the saber attack. He bit his tongue, burning his blood essence as his Yuan Qi exploded so as to dodge to the side!
However… it was too late!
Or it should be said that the saber beam was too fast. It far exceeded Gongsun Hong’s dodging speed. Even though he had made the best choice immediately, it was still meaningless.
Gongsun Hong’s body clammed up. His expression froze completely as the saber beam pierced through his chest!
Gongsun Hong was completely stunned. He looked at his chest in disbelief.
A heart wrenching blood gash streaked across his chest to his armpit, as pulsing arteries pumped blood out of the gash.
The bottom half of Gongsun Hong’s body slid off, falling in a curious, disjointed way. He had been split into two by Yi Yun’s saber attack!
“Ah… Ah… ” Gongsun Hong cried out in pain. The moment he opened his mouth, blood gushed out.
His two halves fell as Gongsun Hong looked at Zhulong in despair. Zhulong was his only lifeline.
All he saw was Zhulong’s sullen face as he suddenly waved his hand.
Gongsun Hong’s soul was forcefully extracted by Zhulong, as it was reduced into a ball of light that hovered in his hand.
“Lord, save me, save me… ” Gongsun Hong uttered with a miserable-sounding voice.
The body he had tempered for more than two decades was completely destroyed. He had no other option. He had to cultivate the “Heavenly Dao Reincarnation Grand Technique” or this would be the end of him.
Zhulong ignored Gongsun Hong as he looked at Yi Yun.
He was holding Gongsun Hong’s soul in one hand, while the other hand was still grabbing the arrow Yi Yun had just shot out. By now, the arrow had mostly exploded, leaving a tiny portion in his hand.
Everyone looked at Yi Yun too.
Although Zhulong managed to easily halt Yi Yun’s certain fatality shot, he was unable to stop Yi Yun’s second attack. The saber beam reached its destination at almost the same time as the arrow, resulting in Yi Yun killing Gongsun Hong in front of Zhulong’s very eyes!
In all the battles before, Zhulong could be said to be overweening with unfathomable strength. This could be seen from him cracking the Desolate race’s ultimate technique, the Da Yan formation or him summoning an ancient life form from the God Burial Abyss.
But now, against Jiang Yidao, Zhulong had fallen for his small scheme.
“Nice saber attack!”
Zhulong looked at Yi Yun and threw away the broken arrow in his hand. He took a black glove out of his interspatial ring, and slowly put it on…
