Zhang Huanyun nodded. "Indeed, our duty is to protect the human race, not destroy it. The federal parliament has truly disappointed me, but we can only wait and see how things pan out from here. In any case, the main enemy we currently have to face is the abyssal plane; those old farts in the military can't make us do anything anyway."
On the screen, the black and golden colors had finally risen to their peaks before sweeping toward one another in a frenzy.
Tang Wulin flapped his wings with all his might and unleashed his Golden Dragon Takes Flight, following which a massive golden dragon enveloped his entire body. He hurtled toward Sima Jinchi at an astonishing speed, and his Golden Dragon Spear was the fang of his golden dragon.
Meanwhile, Sima Jinchi had also sprung up into the air, and broken dragon carcasses of all different shapes and forms appeared around his terrifying saber intent. Within that black world was nothing but bleakness and pain, and resentful spiritual fluctuations were surging toward Tang Wulin.
This was a half-step spiritual domain!
Tang Wulin almost instantly came to realize that not only was Sima Jinchi immensely powerful, his spiritual power had also reached the half-step Spirit Domain realm, thereby allowing him to integrate his spiritual power and martial soul to produce a domain that only three-word battle armor masters should possess. In reality, a domain given to a Soul Master by a suit of battle armor simply couldn't compare with a domain attained by the Soul Master themselves.
The golden dragon that Tang Wulin had transformed into was like a moth flying toward a flame, charging into the black world, and the surrounding temperatures plummeted drastically. All of the anguished wails instantly became louder and more desperate, and a burst of powerful light suddenly appeared within the dark world. The burst of light sliced through all of the darkness as if it were parting heaven and earth, and fearsome saber projections erupted forth in a frenzy.
A loud dragon's roar rang out from Tang Wulin's body as he unleashed his Golden Dragon Roar, and all of the anguished wails abruptly cut off as if they'd encountered something completely incredible to them.
Only then did the saber projection clash with the spear projection.
The sound of their clash was akin to that of rumbling thunder. All of the black and golden colors were instantly destroyed during the clash, revealing Tang Wulin and Sima Jinchi's armored figures situated at point-blank range from one another.
The tip of Tang Wulin's spear had struck the blade of Sima Jinchi's saber, and fearsome energy fluctuations instantly exploded at the center of their clash!
Tang Wulin was sent flying backward, as was Sima Jinchi, and some distance was instantly opened up between the two of them.
Both Tang Wulin's Golden Dragon Spear and Sima Jinchi's Dragonslaying Saber were emitting faint buzzing sounds. The Dragonslaying Saber was initially releasing anguished wails, but after clashing with the Golden Dragon Spear, it was now emitting a joyful emotion instead, and that was manifesting itself into a clear buzzing sound.
In contrast, the buzzing emanating from the Golden Dragon Spear was deeper and more solemn, and it was resonating with the sound coming from the Dragonslaying Saber. The two weapons were like a pair of old friends who were greeting one another.
After just a single clash, both Tang Wulin and Sima Jinchi were left feeling quite astonished as both of them were struck by a sense of comfort in the face of each other's aura. Among the two of them, this feeling was more pronounced for Sima Jinchi. Following the clash between the Dragonslaying Saber and the Golden Dragon Spear, his soul power had begun to churn and elevate drastically in the face of the Golden Dragon Spear's aura. At the same time, he was struck by an unprecedented feeling of becoming one with his Dragonslaying Saber. At this moment, it was as if he had become his saber, and an extremely joyful emotion was spreading through his heart.
What was going on? What was going on? Could it be that his opponent's martial soul was a dragon of justice? Even then, that still didn't justify such an elated response from his Dragonslaying Saber!
This had undoubtedly been an experimental clash during which both of them were trying to test each other out, and the result had been a completely unexpected one for them.
The violent force of the clash made both of them feel as if their blood essence were churning within their bodies, but the Golden Dragon Spear was transmitting a sense of elation to Tang Wulin, as well as even a sense of intimacy, as if it had encountered a good friend that it hadn't met in many years.
This feeling was far more pronounced for Sima Jinchi, and it wouldn't be an exaggeration to say that the feeling he received from his Dragonslaying Saber was a sense of admiration, as if it had encountered a senior whom it adored and respected.
What was going on?
Both of them landed on the competition platform, yet instead of immediately springing into action again, they were appraising one another from afar with bewilderment in their hearts.
Under normal circumstances, their weapons should've been able to dominate their opponent's martial souls, but instead, they were both being struck by this unprecedented feeling. What did this mean? They couldn't help but be intrigued by this. However, they were currently standing on a battlefield in the semifinals of a monumental competition, so they didn't have any time to ponder such matters.
After taking a deep breath, Tang Wulin pointed his Golden Dragon Spear forward, and he instantly became one with his spear, sending a burst of extremely sharp spear intent hurtling toward Sima Jinchi like lightning.
Sima Jinchi raised his Dragonslaying Saber before him, and a series of patterns resembling dismembered giant dragons appeared on the surfaces of the blade as powerful saber intent swept through over heaven and earth.
If his saber intent were like a vast ocean, then Tang Wulin's Golden Dragon Spear would be like a proud raft that was able to pierce through the waves at ease, and neither side was able to gain an absolute upper hand in this clash of auras.
"Roar!" A loud dragon's roar erupted around Tang Wulin's body, and dazzling golden light radiated from his Dragon Moon battle armor. At the same time, both his dragon core and soul core were beginning to pulse in unison. A series of Bluesilver Emperor vine appeared over the surface of his suit of battle armor, and these vines all wound themselves around his Golden Dragon Spear.
Following that first clash, Tang Wulin already clearly felt that he was no match for Sima Jinchi in direct clashes. Only by using his blood soul fusion skills did he have a chance to win this battle. Furthermore, he had to do everything in his power to restrict his opponent so that he wouldn't be able to completely release his saber soul.
In the next instant, Tang Wulin sprang into action. He gently tapped his foot onto the ground, and his body flashed through the air. His dragon wings seemed to have suddenly expanded in size, and he flapped them vigorously. In the next instant, he had already transformed into his spear and was hurtling toward Sima Jinchi like a bolt of golden lightning.
Sima Jinchi let loose a roar of fury as he swept his Dragonslaying Saber horizontally through the air, unleashing a massive saber projection that erupted forth amid the thunderous anguished wails of countless giant dragons. A gigantic black dragon appeared behind him, and it was struggling violently in mid-air, seemingly trying to get away from something. However, in the next instant, a streak of white light flashed past, and its body was sliced in half. Boundless resentment, hatred, remorse, pain, and countless other negative emotions instantly transformed into bursts of black energy that streamed into the Dragonslaying Saber in a frenzy. A layer of black scales seemed to have appeared over the saber projection.
A huge golden dragon head erupted out of the front tip of the Golden Dragon Spear before letting loose an almighty roar toward the saber projection up ahead.
A peculiar turn of events then unfolded: the black dragon saber projection that was filled with negative emotions quickly melted away in the face of the thunderous roar. The negative emotions it harbored were drastically alleviated, and it was as if it had found its release.
The golden dragon swayed before rushing out of the Golden Dragon Spear. The spear then instantly fused as one with it, and a faint layer of blue appeared over the giant golden dragon's scales. Powerful life force energy was then imbued into the golden dragon, making it seem as if it had truly sprung to life.
This was his blood soul fusion skill, Blue Emperor Dragon Shocks the Heavens!
Following the recent period of cultivation, Tang Wulin had gained complete control over his own powers, and his control over his own Golden Dragon King bloodline, as well as his understanding of his blood soul fusion skills, had reached a whole new level. With the injection of his Bluesilver Emperor vines, not only had his Golden Dragon Shocks the Heavens become more powerful, he had also bestowed upon it a hint of life, and that was what made it truly formidable.
The Black Dragon Slash clashed with the Blue Emperor Dragon Shocks the Heavens amid a resounding boom!
To the spectators, it looked as if the devastating Dragonslaying Saber immediately began to display signs of being overwhelmed.
The saber projection began to recede before falling apart, and as the golden light and black light intertwined, the spectators were greeted by the sight of the Golden Dragon Spear striking the back of the saber.
A crisp clang rang out, and Sima Jinchi's entire body shuddered violently as he was sent flying like a shooting star by the terrifying power within the Golden Dragon Spear.
Bursts of golden spear intent surged into his body in a frenzy, but right at this moment, a halo of black light radiated forth from his Dragonslaying Saber, engulfing all of the golden spear intent.
At this moment, Sima Jinchi was being afflicted by intense agony, and he felt as if every single inch of his skin were being torn apart. However, his Dragonslaying Saber was more elated than ever, as if it had obtained a priceless treasure. All of the anguished cries from the giant dragons vanished and were replaced by bursts of overjoyed buzzing.
In the next instant, a strange burst of energy fluctuations surged into his body from the Dragonslaying Saber, and his soul power, which had remained stagnant for many years, suddenly jolted violently before elevating ever so slightly.Previous Chapter Next Chapter
