Chapter 839: Defeating Li Li

The voice felt like it was heavenly music in Tang Longfei's ears. He exclaimed in excitement, "Overlord!"

As for Li Li, her expression turned unsightly. However, she still wasn't afraid since her strength had also grown greatly recently. Without any hesitation, she attacked Tang Longfei, trying to finish him off before doing anything else.

But before her whip could strike Tang Longfei, a silhouette appeared before her and caught her whip in his hand. The whip's lash was insanely powerful, capable of threatening even a peak Emperor. And yet, the newcomer was able to catch it with bare hands, greatly alarming Li Li. The newcomer was none other than Xiang Shaoyun.

"Get over here," Xiang Shaoyun roared as he pulled and dragged Li Li toward him.

She was naturally unwilling to be caught so easily. Using all her strength, she planted her feet into the ground, trying to stop herself from being pulled. However, it seemed like her struggle was completely pointless, and her body continued approaching Xiang Shaoyun at a rapid speed, her buried feet leaving two deep trenches on the ground.

Her expressions shifted several times as she quickly focused her energy into the whip and roared, "Let go!"

The energy she directed into the whip was powerful, and an ordinary person would not be able to endure it. However, Xiang Shaoyun seemed completely unaffected. He channeled his own energy into the whip as well, and the two energies clashed with the whip as the medium. 

Several muffled sounds rang out, and the whip snapped into several parts. The impact blasted Li Li away. Xiang Shaoyun did not intend to spare her, so his body blurred as he reappeared above her. His foot lashed out.

He showed no mercy despite facing a great beauty, aiming his kicks at her vitals. Fortunately for Li Li, after being kicked twice, the Flaming Sun members arrived to back her up, preventing Xiang Shaoyun from continuing the torture.

Xiang Shaoyun snorted coldly, "You were trying to bully my Overlord Legion for having fewer numbers, right? All of you can leave the battleground." 

Xiang Shaoyun was already unhappy with the Flaming Sun and the Royal Army for what had happened earlier. With a roar, a saber appeared in his hand. Using human saber unity, he attacked in all directions.

He was going to let these people bleed, lest they not know the price for offending the Overlord Legion.

Since Xiang Shaoyun focused on too many different aspects of cultivation, he had never gotten the chance to study the second stage of saber intent. He was still stuck at the peak of the first stage, but that was enough for him to defeat them all.

In any case, the remaining Overlord Legion members still had decent strength, so the two sides were now evenly matched. Xiang Shaoyun swung his saber continuously, instantly causing several people to bleed and wail miserably. 

If it wasn't for the fact that Xiang Shaoyun had been holding back since they were all fellow disciples, he would have outright killed or crippled them. Apart from Li Li, who was still somewhat strong, the others were nothing before Xiang Shaoyun.

Fear filled the Flaming Sun and Royal Army members as they started fleeing in a disorderly fashion. Those failing to escape crushed their protective jades, desperately trying to escape Xiang Shaoyun, who was akin to a death god.

Li Li was extremely sullen. She was unwilling to withdraw, so she clenched her teeth and shouted, "Xiang Shaoyun, I challenge you to a duel!"

Once, she represented the Flaming Sun and tried to recruit Xiang Shaoyun but was rejected. She had subsequently created some troubles for Xiang Shaoyun, but he had survived them all. And now, it was finally the time for them to have a decisive battle.

As a wood cultivator, she had an advantage in their current environment. Even if Xiang Shaoyun seemed stronger than she had expected, she did not fear dueling him here. A green sword appeared in her hand. She became one with her sword and sent repeated sword attacks forward, surrounding Xiang Shaoyun with sword energies.

The sword energies were incredibly sharp, leaving deep cuts everywhere in the area. They were powerful enough to threaten peak Emperors. Xiang Shaoyun had just sent several people flying away when he felt the sword energies coming from his back. He wasn't able to dodge in time, so he turned and swept with his saber.

River of Corpses!

The attack seemed casual, but it emanated an intense killing intent. Bolts of lightning shot from the saber, instantly destroying the sword energies before continuing toward Li Li. She retreated again and again, swinging her sword repeatedly. However, the saber energies seemed endless, coming for her untiringly.

Skyshaking Green Rainbow!

With a roar, Li Li formed a green rainbow that seemed like it had appeared from the distant horizon. The rainbow clashed with Xiang Shaoyun's lightning saber energies. This was Li Li's trump card, yet it only barely stopped the saber before the impact blasted her far away.

She nimbly turned around and started fleeing at her maximum speed. Even as she fled, she left a warning behind, "Xiang Shaoyun, the holy son will not spare you."

Xiang Shaoyun wanted to give chase, but he found to his astonishment that her aura had vanished completely. It seemed Li Li was rather impressive in terms of preserving her own life.

Even if he tried giving chase, he wouldn't be able to determine in which direction she had fled. Thus, he forgot about chasing her. In any case, they would have a chance to meet again if they both remained on the battleground.

With Li Li escaping, the remaining Flaming Sun and Royal Army members became helpless. Those capable of escaping fled, while those who couldn't crushed their jades. Soon, the battle ended. There were about 30 Overlord Legion members left.

Before this, some of them had been forced to crush their jades, and some others had been separated from the group while escaping. Even so, with their current number, they could already protect themselves in the battleground. At the very least, it was much better than fighting alone.

Xiang Shaoyun wanted to let Tang Longfei and the others recover somewhat before they went looking for the others, but Tang Longfei told him something that forced him to lead the others and start traveling in a rush.

Regardless of the authenticity of the information, it was a great opportunity for the Overlord Legion members. They had to give it a try. What information was it exactly that Xiang Shaoyun placed so much importance on?
