Chapter 267: Battling the Cannibal King

"Lowly human, die!" The cannibal king smashed his club at Xiang Shaoyun repeatedly with a terrifying brutish strength, forcing Xiang Shaoyun to be on the defensive. His entire body was hammered into the ground, and a large crater had formed around him. Dust and pebbles flew everywhere as the club ravaged the area.

The intense pressure gave Xiang Shaoyun a sensation that he had returned to the second King Realm limit room. In fact, the attacks of this cannibal king were similar in strength to the attacks he was subjected to in the second limit room.

Good, this is the kind of pressure I need, thought Xiang Shaoyun. His battle intent completely ignited, he roared and unleashed his innate purple lightning. He started slashing the cannibal king with his Purple Lightning Saber, his saber erupting in power like a roaring purple dragon, forcing the cannibal king to retreat.

Lightning was after all the most overbearing of the numerous elements, and with Xiang Shaoyun's combat prowess comparable to a King's, he was naturally able to unleash attacks destructive enough to threaten even the cannibal king after combining his combat prowess with the innate purple lightning. With the retreat of the cannibal king, Xiang Shaoyun leaped off the ground and soared to the sky before releasing an incredibly breathtaking saber energy.

Lightning Slash From The Clear Sky!

He used his ultimate technique straight away without holding anything back. The attack arrived like a sudden lightning bolt from a clear sky with a loud and shocking thunderclap. The saber energy tore through the sky and arrived before the cannibal king in the blink of an eye.

Rumble!

The overbearing attack arrived so quickly it felt like a lightning bolt had actually appeared from the ground. Xiang Shaoyun's combat prowess had been growing, and now, he was finally able to reveal a tiny bit of the real might of the Nine Overlord Skyslaying Saber Technique.

After sending the slash out, Xiang Shaoyun's body started dropping from the sky. He did not make use of the White Tiger Wings to remain airborne because its energy drainage was too large for it to be used casually, such as in this circumstance. It would be far better to save the wings for crucial moments. In any case, he was confident his slash was enough to give the cannibal king a terrible injury.

The attack landed and injured the cannibal king, but the injury wasn't as bad as Xiang Shaoyun had envisioned. The cannibal king had formed multiple layers of thick brown energy, which had protected his entire body. But from the blood dripping out of his mouth, one could still see that he had been injured by Xiang Shaoyun's attack.

The cannibal king's eyes turned bloodshot as he shouted, "Human, I will tear you apart alive!"

For the high and mighty cannibal king, Xiang Shaoyun was but a puny human. But it was this same puny human who had injured him, and that caused him to be furious. He flew toward Xiang Shaoyun and let loose a mighty roar from his mouth.

Cannibal's Roar!

This was a type of sound attack unique to the cannibals, and it did not target only one's ears. After the cannibal king roared, an apparition of a cannibal head formed from brutal energy and bit down at Xiang Shaoyun.

The attack came suddenly and arrived before Xiang Shaoyun in the blink of an eye. Meanwhile, he was still stunned from the sudden soundwave attack, allowing the cannibal head to bite him. After biting him, the cannibal head dissolved and entered his body. The brutal energy released all his negative emotions and started messing with his mind.

Swish!

Once again, the Nether Dragon Soul Headband reacted. Strands of energy trailed out and devoured the invading brutal energy, saving Xiang Shaoyun from it. However, the cannibal king had arrived before him.

"Die!" shouted the cannibal king before slamming his bone club at Xiang Shaoyun's head.

Xiang Shaoyun did not look like he would be able to avoid the attack. If the club landed, his head would most likely be smashed apart.

"Nether Dragon Soul Headband, come out!" In his panic, Xiang Shaoyun released his Nether Dragon Soul Headband from his head.

Clank!

The bone club struck the Nether Dragon Soul Headband, causing a crisp sound to ring in the air. Not only had the Nether Dragon Soul Headband successfully blocked the attack, the impact from the collision had even jolted away the cannibal king. The cannibal king was greatly alarmed as he had not expected that Xiang Shaoyun would have such a treasure on him.

Xiang Shaoyun heaved a breath of relief before lifting his head and looking at the cannibal king. Killing intent surfaced in his eyes as he said, "That scared me shitless! How dare you scare me like that? Today, you die!"

He then withdrew the Nether Dragon Soul Headband before jabbing forward repeatedly, releasing numerous beams of finger energy toward the cannibal king. The Star Destroying Finger wouldn't be able to harm the cannibal king. He only used the attack to provoke the cannibal king into attacking him again.

Cannibals were simple-minded and had bad temper. Thus, when the cannibal king sensed Xiang Shaoyun's provocation, he attacked again. This time, he switched his target to Xiang Shaoyun's body.

"This is what I'm waiting for!" said Xiang Shaoyun with a cold snort. 

Once again, he activated his innate purple lightning. At the same time, he pushed his concentration to the peak and entered a unique state where he seemed to have become one with the Purple Lightning Saber. Finally, he swung his saber, releasing a purple lightning bolt. It was still the same Lightning Slash From The Clear Sky, but this time, it was also powered by his saber intent.

Sphhlt!

The cannibal king's attack crumbled apart before Xiang Shaoyun's slash. At the same time, a bloody cut appeared on his belly. Blood gushed out without stop even as the lightning energy proceeded to wreak havoc in his body. Assailed by the intense pain, he wailed before flying away.

"Fleeing? You won't be able to flee!" said Xiang Shaoyun with a sneer. The white tiger wings unfurled from his back. With a flap, vicious gold energy rippled out and created a cloud of dust around him.

Instantly, Xiang Shaoyun shot toward the cannibal king. His speed of flight was fast enough for him to catch up with the cannibal king in the blink of an eye. The cannibal king was already seriously injured and could only fly slowly. Xiang Shaoyun being able to fly was something he had never expected. Looking at the approaching Xiang Shaoyun, he roared and started madly swinging his club at Xiang Shaoyun.

Flapping his wings, Xiang Shaoyun avoided the attacks and released another slash in human saber unity mode. After a few slashes, the cannibal king started falling from the sky, looking like he could no longer fight back. Xiang Shaoyun was about to deal the final blow when he suddenly stopped.

"Rather than killing you, I'm better off turning you into my helper," said Xiang Shaoyun.

Having made up his mind, he started chanting the Nether Dragon Soul Curse. Numerous ancient symbols started drifting through the air while the Nether Dragon Soul Headband showed itself once more. It turned into the shape of a dragon and wrapped itself around the cannibal king's head. The cannibal king was already seriously injured and was completely helpless. Thus, the Nether Dragon Soul Headband was able to lock itself around his head successfully.

"Roar! Roar!"

The cannibal king started roaring madly, but the more he struggled, the worse his injuries became. Although the cannibals had terrifying physical prowess, their souls were comparatively weaker. After his soul was attacked by Xiang Shaoyun's Nether Dragon Soul Curse, a brand was quickly left behind. Just like that, a Nether Dragon Soul Curse formed of Xiang Shaoyun's soul power was left in the cannibal king's head.

As for the original Nether Dragon Soul Curse, it was summoned back into Xiang Shaoyun's head while Xiang Shaoyun continued chanting the curse to complete the process of subduing the cannibal king.
