Chapter 1165: Tortured

The Yin Mother Sword had boundless strength. Coupled with the might of Xiang Shaoyun's saint soul, an unprecedentedly powerful attack was unleashed. By the time the sword trail faded, it was as though the sky had been emptied of clouds. A deep and long trench was left on the ground, as though the ground had been split into two. A large portion of Xiang Shaoyun's strength had been exhausted by the attack. Even his complexion turned pale.

"Is he dead?" muttered Xiang Shaoyun when he looked at the empty space before him.

"What a powerful weapon. What a powerful clone," a voice sounded above him.

The person in the hemp garment could be seen hovering midair. He remained completely undamaged as he looked at Xiang Shaoyun mockingly, his arms crossed across his chest. Xiang Shaoyun felt his entire body turn cold.

His attack had failed to hit. It was clear just how much stronger the man was than him. Even his saint soul was completely helpless. Xiang Shaoyun did not dare to hesitate and had his clone flee at top speed while carrying his main body.

At the same time, he prepared to turn invisible so the other party couldn't locate him. Unfortunately, the person in the hemp garment was resolute in capturing Xiang Shaoyun. He instantly utilized a large amount of energy to seal the space around them, not giving Xiang Shaoyun the chance to flee.

The man also formed a lightning fist and released a blast of lightning from the sky. The punch was akin to a natural calamity, descending like an ocean of lightning dropping from the sky. The punch covered a radius of several kilometers, making it impossible for Xiang Shaoyun to escape.

The Radiant Saint Armor appeared around Xiang Shaoyun's body while his clone reunited with the main body. He pushed his defenses to the limits, trying to survive the incoming attack.

Boom!

The area was blasted by a world-shaking might. This was the prowess of a Saint's wrath. It was basically unstoppable. 

The attack brought Xiang Shaoyun to the brink of death, and he coughed up a copious amount of blood. If it wasn't for the fact that his soul and body were strong and he was protected by the Radiant Saint Armor, he would have probably died. 

Before he could fully recover from his disorientation, the person in the hemp garment grabbed his head.

"What secrets do you have? Reveal them all," said the hemp garment person coldly. A stream of energy flowed from his hand into Xiang Shaoyun's head.

That was the energy of a Saint. Like tentacles, the energy started invading and searching Xiang Shaoyun's soul. But the moment the energy entered Xiang Shaoyun's head, his soul foundation and Nether Soul Domain worked together and repelled the energy.

"Pointless struggle," said the hemp garment person as he sent more energy into Xiang Shaoyun's head.

"Get lost!" Xiang Shaoyun's saint soul roared and fought the invading energy with the Nether Dragon Soul Curse. At the same time, numerous chains appeared from the Nether Soul Domain to fight the invading energy.

The hemp garment person's energy was extremely powerful. However, Xiang Shaoyun's Nether Soul Domain had a suppressive effect that greatly weakened the invading energy, causing his attempt at searching Xiang Shaoyun's soul to fail again and again.

"You're really something, aren't you? Just wait until I cripple your body. Let's see how you're going to struggle then," said the hemp garment person murderously as he stomped on Xiang Shaoyun's body.

Xiang Shaoyun was stomped into the ground as he let loose a wail from the miserable pain.

"You have saint armor and a saint weapon. You're quite rich, kid," said the hemp garment person mockingly.

"If you want to kill me, you'll need to pay the price," said Xiang Shaoyun, who, in his despair, decided to throw all caution to the wind.

The Nether Soul Domain appeared and trapped the hemp garment person. A powerful suppression descended upon the hemp garment person as numerous chains shot toward him.

At the same time, the five ghostrunes woke up from their slumber and started attacking the hemp garment person with a tsunami of soul power. They were now Devil Sovereigns. Their joint attack was not to be underestimated. Even as they attacked with their soul power, they flapped their wings to send forth waves of bewitching power.

The hemp garment person was unaware that Xiang Shaoyun had so many trump cards. He was caught by complete surprise, and his mind went blank for a short moment. Numerous chains wrapped around him while the soul attacks invaded his head. At the same time, Xiang Shaoyun's soul clone charged the hemp garment person murderously.

"Die!" said Xiang Shaoyun as his clone used the Flux Finger Sword Technique, swiping the sharp energy sword at the hemp garment person's neck.

The Flux Finger Sword Technique was boundlessly powerful, strong enough to kill even Saints. Just as the finger sword was about to reach the person's neck, the hemp garment person erupted with the aura of a sixth-stage Heaven Battling Realm expert and broke free. The finger sword was also blasted sideways and only managed to slice the person's shoulder.

Hiss!

His shoulder's stinging pain caused the hemp garment person to hiss in pain. His expression turned solemn.

"What an annoying little bastard. Are you forcing me to destroy your soul as well?" said the hemp garment person. He waved his hands repeatedly and flooded his surroundings with lightning, destroying the chains and the ghostrunes' attacks.

He then took the chance to capture Xiang Shaoyun's soul clone. So long as he could capture the soul clone, he would obtain everything he wanted.

"I am the lord of this world. Suppress!" Xiang Shaoyun unleashed all his might, pushing the suppression to the maximum to constantly weaken the hemp garment person. At the same time, his soul foundation pressed down on his opponent like a collapsing mountain.

The hemp garment person had not expected to have his strength suppressed. He also failed to notice the lurking soul foundation in time. As the soul foundation knocked into him, he staggered and nearly collapsed.

"Since you're trying so hard to die, don't blame me," said the hemp garment person, thoroughly infuriated. He unleashed his full strength, trying to destroy the entire domain.

A sixth-stage Heaven Battling Realm cultivator was extremely powerful. A mere eruption of his aura was enough to wreak havoc in Xiang Shaoyun's Nether Soul Domain. 

Xiang Shaoyun still couldn't fully unleash the might of a saint soul. Due to the massive gap between his strength and the hemp garment person's, he had no way of withstanding the eruption.

At the critical moment, he had a flash of inspiration. He released the hemp garment person from the domain while a jade slip appeared in his hand.

With a pale complexion, Xiang Shaoyun muttered, "I've had enough. You have successfully forced me to a corner."

And then, he crushed the jade slip.
