Chapter 1645: Fey Thearchs’ Staredown
No one expected that Yi Yun would stir the Luo King into action after engaging in merely three rounds of combat. A figure like the Luo King was given high recognition even before the Ruins Emperor.
Against the Luo King, everyone felt a sense of trepidation. They looked at Yi Yun, but realized that he did not appear flustered at all. Even if he was putting on a front, it was already quite impressive.
“To battle in the beast colosseum, you must sign the life-and-death waiver. You must abide by the rules no matter how many Fey beasts you kill, but why did you attack my grandson?”
The Luo King’s voice was aggressive.
Yi Yun sneered and said, “Your grandson wished for my death in my battle with the beast, but you don’t permit me to counterattack? As a high and mighty Fey Thearch, you have even tampered with the protective array formation, going as far as to sever your psyche force to inject it into the array. When you encounter undefeatable opponents, you trigger the severed psyche force to harm the gladiator. This sure is a brilliant plan!”
Yi Yun’s words shocked everyone!
Many people were watching the fight as entertainment, but they had no idea of the exact details. Now that Yi Yun had made an exposé, they learned that the Luo King had severed a portion of his psyche force to harm geniuses in battle.
Although the Fey Blood Plains’ battle rules were self-determined and never claimed to avoid such acts, it was still quite a loathsome piece of news. What was the meaning of this? In order to ensure his interests in the Fey Blood Plains, the Fey Thearch would personally enter the battle with his psyche force to harm the battling genius?
This was way too sensational. Furthermore, it was obvious that anyone who was targeted in such a manner was killed to ensure the confidentiality of the matter. The spectators would only believe that the gladiator had died due to their ineptitude, but they had no idea that it was a result of the Luo King’s severed psyche force.
Instantly, the spectators present were enraged. They were so interested in the battle colosseum mainly because a number of them had participated in it before.
Now, it appeared that their survival was not because they were too powerful, but it was the complete opposite—they were too weak and unqualified.
The Luo King narrowed his eyes as he glared at Yi Yun. Ever since Yi Yun escaped despite Jiang Yuchan’s triggering of his severed psyche force, the situation had already gone out of control.
Yi Yun was completely disparaging him due to his backing from the Blood King.
At the end of the day, it was because Yi Yun had removed the seal in the black Sea Serpent’s body, allowing for it to mutiny.
The Luo King was stumped. The seal he had planted involved ancient mystic arts. The restraints the mystic art provided was something even the Blood King could not remove. How did Yi Yun manage to do it?
“Blood King, since you are here, there’s no need to hide. Come on out!”
The Luo King suddenly spoke. He had appeared only to protect Jiang Yuchan. After all, he was forced to do so since Yi Yun’s attack had nearly killed Jiang Yuchan.
As for suppressing Yi Yun, that was impossible. This was because the moment he appeared, the Blood King, who had a vendetta against him, would definitely appear.
This resulted in a stalemate between the two Fey Thearchs. The ones to truly determine victory were the juniors.
But against a freak of nature like Yi Yun, which junior was his match?
“Hahaha! Luo King, how have you been?”
A dragged out laughter was heard as the space behind Yi Yun warped. A man dressed in blood-colored robes appeared out of thin air. His hair flared in the air and his eyes were deep like the abyss. It was as though he could suck the souls of others into them.
Just looking at the Blood King made others feel like they had arrived in a bloody pool in hell. There were the appalling sounds of slaughtering all around and they seemed to see countless roaring Fey beasts. There was bodies of people engaging in massacres with blood-stained weapons as far as the eyes could see!
Everyone held their breaths for he was a lot mightier when it came to his stance.
The Luo King was stable and distant, like a lofty mountain.
As for the Blood King, he was filled with a decimation aura. Facing him felt like one was facing devils from an abyss. It left people stifled.
Two Fey Thearchs!
In the Heaven Fey Ancient Ruins, these Fey Thearchs stood high above others. Commoners seldom saw them, but there were two appearing at one go!
“Luo King, what’s the matter? The juniors are just sparring, but it actually pushed you into action. Is your grandson that useless? He has a quasi-Fey Thearch, Jiang Yuebai, to protect him, as well as a quasi-Fey Thearch Fey beast to summon. He even has a severed psyche force you left him and an intrinsic talisman charm. For him to be reduced to such a pathetic state by Lin Yun despite having so many good things that you needed to rush here to save his life must have been hard on you.”
The Blood King did not hold back on his sarcasm. This was how the Fey handled things. For humans, even when important figures faced each other, their words would be somewhat measured, but the Blood King did not have such scruples. He was verbally smacking faces!
And he said whatever dealt the maximum impact.
He had a grudge with the Luo King to begin with. Now, Yi Yun had disgraced the Luo King so thoroughly that it was equivalent to tearing his face off and trampling it on the ground. He was in such a good mood that he yearned to cheer on Yi Yun.
Upon hearing the Blood King’s words, Jiang Yuchan was so depressed that he wanted to die.
The result of the situation today was all because he had lost to Yi Yun. Furthermore, he had lost terribly; thus causing the Luo King to be in such a passive predicament.
The Luo King looked at the Blood King, but he did not retort. Anything he said would appear pointless and weak. He said, “Blood King, I heard that you have always wished to battle me?”
The Luo King’s words stunned everyone present.
A battle among Fey Thearchs!?
In the Heaven Fey Ancient Ruins, battles between Fey Thearchs were very rare. However, they still occurred. After all, the Fey were a combative race. Any disagreements that could not be resolved, ones that the Ruins Emperor could not mediate, would result in a battle among Fey Thearchs!
The typical Fey Thearch cherished their lives, so they did not easily engage in battle. After all, winning the battle required them to pay quite a considerable price. And any loss would be worse. Not only would they lose their reputation, they would also lose actual interests.
The Luo King had no intention to fight the Blood King originally, but he had been disgraced today. If he did not counterattack, he would become the laughing stock of the Heaven Fey Ancient Ruins.
A battle among Fey Thearchs was sufficient to divert the attention of the entire city.
Besides, the Blood King was a newly ascended Fey Thearch. He was at his prime and his strength improved rapidly. He also was at odds against him in every aspect. If he could heavily damage the Blood King during this period of growth, he could curtail his momentum and completely solidify his advantage.
Instantly, the Blood King and Luo King sent their lifeblood churning. They faced each other in a stalemate as the Heaven Earth Yuan Qi in the Fey Blood Plains split into two because of their appearance! If one went from the region where the Blood King was standing in to the Luo King’s region, they would have the sensation of walking from one world to another.
This was the power of a Fey Thearch. Once they released their auras, they could form a world in and of itself.
The battle that was about to erupt between two Fey Thearchs stirred the zeal and ardor in everyone. This was a rare scene that left them thrilled. They no longer even cared that they had lost huge amounts of Chaos Crystal because of Yi Yun’s victory.
