Primordial Chaos Daolord was obviously incensed by Yi Yun’s taunt. He was in control of the Great Cosmic State for many years. All disciples of the Great Cosmic State would be absolutely respectful to him whenever they met him, not even daring to take so much as a breath in his presence. Even Sacred Horizon Divine Lord and the rest would have to treat him politely. He had never encountered anyone who dared curse him as ‘old ignoramus’ right in his face.
“Punk, if you have a death wish, I’ll fulfill it for you!” Primordial Chaos Daolord pointed his saber and charged towards Yi Yun.
Although Yi Yun’s cauldron provided a great defense, it was not invincible.
In the Primordial Chaos cyclone, Primordial Chaos Daolord could hardly fend for himself, leaving him helpless against such a hit and run strategy. But outside, as long as he had a chance, he could contain the human and the cauldron together. When that happened, he could seal Yi Yun inside the cauldron and slowly refine him. Then, it would be no different from catching a rat in a hole. He could torture Yi Yun as he pleased.
But how could Yi Yun not know this? He obviously would not offer Primordial Chaos Daolord such a chance. The moment Primordial Chaos Daolord moved, Yi Yun would put away the Ascending Dragon Cauldron, activate the Primordial Chaos space, turn around, and fly off. His reflexes were faster than those of an escaping hare.
He obviously would not come to actual blows with Primordial Chaos Daolord, he just wanted to infuriate the old ignoramus.
After Primordial Chaos Daolord chased behind him angrily for a moment, he gradually realized that the continued pursuit would only result in the same situation as before. The little bastard was obviously trying to fight a battle of attrition with him. If he really continued the chase, he would only be succumbing to the little bastard’s ploy.
As Yi Yun kept fleeing, he discovered that Primordial Chaos Daolord had turned and left. Without a thought, he immediately turned back and caught up to Primordial Chaos Daolord. Primordial Chaos Daolord was unable to catch up to him, but he could easily reach Primordial Chaos Daolord.
Yi Yun had the Primordial Chaos space, allowing him to travel like a fish in water through this primeval Universe. It was impossible to get Yi Yun off his tail.
Primordial Chaos Daolord sensed Yi Yun’s return instantly, but he had made up his mind to ignore Yi Yun.
Similarly, Yi Yun discovered that Primordial Chaos Daolord was only bent on continuing his journey, ignoring him completely in the process. He immediately pricked up his brows. How meaningless was such a pursuit?
Primordial Chaos Daolord had made up his mind to treat Yi Yun as nothing but air, but at that moment, the air itself came at his back in a sharp surge.
“Old ignoramus, take this!”
Primordial Chaos Daolord quickly turned around and saw a sword beam slashing at him. He extended his arm, distorting the spatial dimension laws to form a warped barrier of light in front of him. It was as though he had erected a mirror of light in front of him.
When the sword beam struck the mirror of light, the mirror emitted a burst of light before dissipating slowly. As for the sword beam, it was completely blocked.
Primordial Chaos Daolord looked grimly at Yi Yun and was tempted to attack, but Yi Yun had already taken precautions by summoning the Ascending Dragon Cauldron.
Upon seeing the ancient cauldron and the beaming Yi Yun standing beside it, Primordial Chaos Daolord was so angry that his fingernails sank into his flesh.
Yi Yun waited for Primordial Chaos Daolord to take action, but Primordial Chaos Daolord only gave him a cold stare before turning to leave again.
“Old turtle, you sure are tolerant. I would love to see how long you can put up with this,” said Yi Yun without any scruples.
He clearly saw Primordial Chaos Daolord’s body pause for a moment before it continued its departure.
In the coming days, Primordial Chaos Daolord was pushed to the brink of insanity. He had heard of how mortals had to suffer the pain of mosquito bites on summer nights, but from his point of view, Yi Yun was even more irritating than a mosquito!
He kept hearing the bastard’s cries—”Old turtle, eat this!”, “Old ignoramus, have a finger!”, “Old tool, don’t think of escaping!”—behind him. They were all accompanied by a myriad of attacks. It irritated Primordial Chaos Daolord tremendously.
He felt like Yi Yun was using him as target practice!
And in fact, Yi Yun did have such intentions. Having been in the ancient battlefield for nearly two decades, Yi Yun’s cultivation level had improved by leaps and bounds. He had gone from the mid-stage Supremacy realm to its peak, and was even approaching the cusp of Divine Lord!
However, no matter how much of the River of Forgetfulness’s water he consumed, Yi Yun’s combat experience was ultimately lacking. His strength needed to be honed through battle. Of course, fighting an opponent much more powerful than himself to repeatedly test his limits was the best way to hone himself.
With Primordial Chaos Daolord in front of him, he had a golden opportunity. How could Yi Yun let it go?
At that moment, Primordial Chaos Daolord was already completely incensed, but he could do nothing to Yi Yun.
Every time his patience wore out and he attacked, Yi Yun would immediately enter the large cauldron and used the Primordial Chaos laws to escape far away before his attack could hit.
Previously, Primordial Chaos Daolord coveted the Ascending Dragon Cauldron but now, the mere sight of it gave him a headache. He wished he could reduce it to scrap metal.
Apart from that, Primordial Chaos Daolord also noticed that Yi Yun was constantly enervating him of his Yuan Qi.
“Little bastard, do you think you have what it takes to fight a battle of attrition with your cultivation level?” Primordial Chaos Daolord thought hatefully.
Although he expended quite a bit of Yuan Qi to block Yi Yun’s attacks, Yi Yun expended even more by being the attacker.
If Yi Yun continued, he might end up getting caught in his own trap.
Although Primordial Chaos Daolord wished to escape Yi Yun, he was ready to go on an all-out offensive the moment Yi Yun revealed a flaw.
Playing with fire could ultimately lead to immolation!
Throughout the journey, Primordial Chaos Daolord was in front, but he did not discover any Chaos Gems. Yi Yun had no chance to replenish his Yuan Qi or Primordial Chaos forces even if he wanted to.
He thought it would have actually been better if the Chaos Gems appeared. Since he was in front, Yi Yun’s strange technique for snatching the Chaos Gems would not work. Any Chaos Gems they found would end up being his.
But after a period of time, Primordial Chaos Daolord slowly found something odd in the situation.
Yi Yun was still attacking him from behind invariably, but by his estimation Yi Yun showed no signs of exhaustion. Instead, he looked energetic and spirited. His attacks were even becoming stronger!
Primordial Chaos Daolord was perplexed. How were Yi Yun’s Yuan Qi reserves so immense when his cultivation level was lower than his?
He expanded the radius of his perception while carefully observing Yi Yun, hoping to figure out what Yi Yun had been doing.
A day later, Primordial Chaos Daolord suddenly realized that a gray beam of light streaked across the confines of his perception.
A Chaos Gem!
The Chaos Gem seemed to have intelligence as it streaked in a huge curved trajectory just on the periphery of his perception, completely circling around Primordial Chaos Daolord before—landing straight in Yi Yun’s hand!
Primordial Chaos Daolord felt stifled at that moment.
No matter how hard he imagined, he would never guess that a Chaos Gem could pursue a new course!
He never expected the Chaos Gem’s intelligence to reach such a level!
Primordial Chaos Daolord had the urge to pound the ground at that moment. He could not figure out how Yi Yun was different from him despite racking his brains. Why did the Chaos Gems insist on choosing the little bastard!?
In fact, Yi Yun himself never expected things would develop to this point. Yi Yun’s Ascending Dragon Cauldron now contained dozens of Chaos Gems…
From the beginning, Yi Yun decided to only absorb about half the amount of the Chaos Gems’ energies. But now, he was only extracting about ten percent.
Those Chaos Gems that were destined to be seized by Primordial Chaos Daolord by being in his path had received early warning by Yi Yun and the other Chaos Gems inside his Ascending Dragon Cauldron, allowing them to escape such a dire fate. Therefore, they did not mind letting Yi Yun absorb ten percent of their energy as repayment. After all, time was meaningless to Chaos Gems.
As Yi Yun attacked Primordial Chaos Daolord the entire way, the Chaos Gems replenished his expenditures, so no matter how high Primordial Chaos Daolord’s cultivation level was, he was eventually left the exasperated one.
Gradually, as Primordial Chaos Daolord was greatly drained of his energies, the vibrant Yi Yun only had more attacks he could deliver to him. The frequency at which he attacked increased. It went from sudden, infrequent, attacks out of the blue to a point where he was constantly attacking, like an artillery barrage of attacks.
Yi Yun’s attacks originally felt no different than the scratch of an itch to Primordial Chaos Daolord, but as time passed, those same attacks began to give him trouble.
Although his clothes were damaged, leaving tiny wounds, it still infuriated Primordial Chaos Daolord greatly that he was injured by a mere junior.
Primordial Chaos Daolord had always acted as his heart wished, arrogant and domineering, decisive in his killing.
He had never regretted killing anyone or antagonizing any enemy, but at that moment, he was feeling a little regret over provoking Yi Yun.
He had never seen such a troublesome wretch in his entire life!
If this continued, he might not be enervated to death by Yi Yun, but he would be enervated dry!
And in comparison, Yi Yun was bursting with energy. He became braver the more he fought. Through the exchange of blows with an expert far stronger than he was, Yi Yun’s cultivation level was turning more intricate, and his usage of the laws turned more adept!
Yi Yun’s Primordial Chaos laws came from the Azure Wood Great World, so compared to his Major Destruction laws, they were a lot weaker. But now, having absorbed so many Chaos Gems, Yi Yun’s Primordial Chaos laws was catching up, no longer any weaker than his Destruction laws!
If this continued, his Primordial Chaos laws and Destruction laws would fuse perfectly, and when that happened, his strength would experience a qualitative improvement!
“Old ignoramus, take another one of these!”
Yi Yun let out a clear cry as he cleaved down with Mirage Snow. This strike contained the Great Dao of Destruction and Chaos. The single strike seemed to rend space asunder and although he was thousands of feet away, it had appeared right in front of Primordial Chaos Daolord in a blink of an eye.
Primordial Chaos Daolord roared as he cleaved out with his saber. His saber was similarly powered with the Dao of Primordial Chaos. It was extremely heavy, enough to split a planet apart!
A violent explosion ensued as Primordial Chaos Daolord felt his Yuan Qi enter turmoil. The lifeblood at his chest went into disarray, for the sword strike contained both the powers of Destruction and Primordial Chaos laws. It had managed to break through his protective Yuan Qi, surging straight into his meridians to cause wanton damage.
Primordial Chaos Daolord’s eyes turned cold as they emitted killing intent. He never expected Yi Yun to grow so rapidly. He clearly sensed that Yi Yun’s attacks were becoming stronger during the pursuit!
It went from only feeling like a mere itch, to damaging his clothes, and now it was already capable of tearing through his protective Yuan Qi.
He immediately circulated his energy to destroy the nomological forces in his meridians.
Primordial Chaos Daolord was already so furious that his intestines were tied up in knots. He had previously sealed the Universe they were in, hoping to corner Yi Yun like a rat in a hole, but he never expected to be the one being chased. Now, his clothes were tattered and he was in a sorry state.
