The surrounding disciples wanted the other geniuses to fight Xiang Shaoyun together, but the geniuses were arrogant individuals who disdained doing so. Devil Concubine was the only one who did not care and attacked Xiang Shaoyun once again. Not only was she using the power of darkness this time, she was also using the power of light.
Her halberd alternated between darkness and light as the two powers interweaved, forming a Tai Chi diagram that crushed down on Xiang Shaoyun.
Yin Yang Manifestation!
The Tai Chi diagram spun, and the domineering powers of yin and yang interweaved. Time seemed to stop as the diagram emanated a power that could give anyone a sense of helplessness.
None of them had expected that Devil Concubine was actually a cultivator of light and darkness. And from how she was fighting, she seemed to possess a Yin Yang Physique, which was a physique no weaker than the Primal Chaos Physique.
In the past, nobody knew that Devil Concubine was a cultivator of two powers. This revelation filled everyone with astonishment. She was exhibiting a strength that was able to slay anything in her path.
Xiang Shaoyun could sense the thick killing intent she was emanating, and he was forced to give up on attacking Jiu Tian. Instead of attacking, he grabbed Jiu Tian and tossed him at Devil Concubine.
Jiu Tian might be incredibly strong, but his strength mostly came from the Nine Palace Sword Formation. After losing the initiative and being badly tortured by Xiang Shaoyun's flux goldthorn energy, he became the first genius here to suffer defeat under Xiang Shaoyun's hands.
Jiu Tian was unhappy with the defeat, but he also knew that Xiang Shaoyun was showing him leniency. He could have easily been killed if Xiang Shaoyun decided to aim the flux goldthorn energy at his head.
His defeat did not signify that he was a weakling. He had merely been defeated because he had underestimated Xiang Shaoyun's speed. Since Jiu Tian cultivated wind, he had believed that nobody could compare with him in terms of speed. Additionally, he had also not foreseen that Xiang Shaoyun had a unique energy no weaker than the purpleflame wind.
His lack of foresight caused him to lose his initiative, making it impossible for him to even utilize his strengths. Also, he had not expected that he would be the first person Xiang Shaoyun decided to defeat after picking a fight with everyone on the stage.
Jiu Tian was a reincarnator, and he was scheming. Unfortunately, he was not as crafty as Xiang Shaoyun, who possessed the Light of Wisdom. With Jiu Tian being tossed toward Devil Concubine, if she continued with her attack, he would be killed. He naturally wouldn't sit still and put his life in her hands, so he instantly erected a solid defense around himself with his nine swords to protect himself against Devil Concubine.
Devil Concubine hurriedly shifted the trajectory of her attack, blasting a dreadful crater into the ground below her. After throwing Devil Concubine off his tail, Xiang Shaoyun did not even bother attacking her. Instead, he charged Baili Yixiao again.
As far as he was concerned, Baili Yixiao was the next opponent he had to defeat. Meanwhile, Xiang Chenxi was still in a state of shock from having Xiang Shaoyun step on his face.
"Bring it on. Let us end this with one move," said Baili Yixiao. After receiving that hit from Xiang Shaoyun earlier, he finally realized that Xiang Shaoyun was much stronger than he had expected. He finally decided to use his full strength against him.
As Xiang Shaoyun approached, Baili Yixiao took a step forward. The same calm smile continued hanging on his face as a unique aura burst out of his back. He then gently swung his sword forward.
This was the sword of a ruler, a sword that only a ruler with a heart wide enough to contain the world could comprehend. This was the essence of the Unrivaled Righteous Sword Technique. Since Baili Yixiao could master this technique to such perfection, did it signify that he had the ambitions of being a ruler?
Boundless sword energy spread far and wide, and numerous sword rays flew everywhere like arrows, displaying a power capable of toppling heaven and earth. This was the unrivaled sword of the righteous. The sword did not seem destructive, but anyone in its path would be destroyed. With Baili Yixiao using the technique, it was apparent that he wanted to end the fight in a single move.
Facing the attack, Xiang Shaoyun stepped back since it was his only choice if he wanted a chance to get through the sword energy that was everywhere. After all, Baili Yixiao was a true master swordsman.
Xiang Shaoyun did not have the time to think of a solution. A black opening, as though a black hole leading to the void, suddenly appeared before him. It erupted with a terrifying suction force and sucked in all the sword energy, protecting Xiang Shaoyun from all harm.
The black hole was the Nether Yin Gate, one of the three strongest abilities of the Imperial Nether Clan. The appearance of that ability stunned everyone present. They had no idea what the technique was. It was actually capable of sucking in such a terrifying concentration of sword energy. Was that the ability of a heaven devouring beast? This ability definitely didn't meet the descriptions of what a heaven devouring beast could do.
High in the air, Feng Huosuo shouted, "Look, this is the innate ability of the Imperial Nether Clan! This kid is a devil! That was why we had decided to expel him from the academy. He is a danger to humanity!"
It seemed like the only thing he wanted was to tell everyone about Xiang Shaoyun's identity, hoping to reach an understanding with the other elders and block Xiang Shaoyun from progressing in the competition.
However, all the elders ignored him. They were completely focused on Xiang Shaoyun, as though they had just seen the most beautiful of women that they couldn't wait to take into their arms.
They did not even care if Xiang Shaoyun had devil blood flowing in him. There were many examples of humans with devil blood successfully learning devil abilities. Each was an individual of extraordinary talent. Since Xiang Shaoyun was able to learn one of the strongest devil abilities as a human, he became even more valuable to them, and it only served to increase their desire to recruit this genius.
The elders weren't even worried about Xiang Shaoyun's identity. They were all Heaven Battling Realm cultivators. It would be easy for them to identify a devil if one was actually right before their eyes. In any case, the lord guardian was basically a guardian of the dominion. A disciple he had personally acknowledged would definitely not be a spy sent by the devils.
Such a thing was not possible, and it was why they completely disregarded Feng Huosuo. They were also rejoicing the fact that the Dragon Phoenix Academy had actually expelled an expert of this caliber. Otherwise, the Dragon Phoenix Academy might very well emerge as the competition's final champion, and that was definitely not something they wanted to see.
Now, Xiang Shaoyun only represented the lord guardian. Even if he became the champion, they wouldn't feel too bad.
To the side, Shadowflash could only sigh, not knowing what to say. He was already regretting the fact that he had offended a freak like this for Feng Huosuo.
After Xiang Shaoyun completed his growth, he would become a terrifying expert. At that time, unless they decided to hide in the academy forever, they would receive his payback the moment they left. The grudge between them wasn't one that could be easily resolved.
He must die! vowed Shadowflash inwardly.Previous Chapter Next Chapter
