It was exactly because of these two soul skills that none of the powerful beings of his generation wished to face him in battle.
The Dark Phoenix Douluo had fallen prey to this combination, and the most damning part about this was not that her Phoenix Reverence Parade had been withdrawn. Instead, it was that her domain had also reverted back to one second ago, which was prior to its release.
Thus, all of the Evil Soul Masters who had just regained some mobility were instantly plunged into the figurative quicksand again.
All of a sudden, Zang Xin's third soul ring lit up, and the passion in his eyes suddenly turned into despair. The look in his eyes struck the beholder with the feeling that he had lost something that was most precious to him forever. Dazzling specks of light instantly appeared over the entire battlefield like countless drops of tears that were proliferating outward.
"Thump, thump, thump thump..." A string of dull thumps rang out, and one head after another exploded like watermelons.
All of those Evil Soul Masters were struck by the feeling that their biggest regrets had instantly been magnified by countless times, and their hearts were unable to bear this agony. Thus, their heads exploded in their excruciating pain, and it seemed that this was the only way they could free themselves from this unspeakable torment.
There were over 100 Evil Soul Masters present, and over two-thirds of them had their heads detonated by these countless specks of light. Even those who managed to survive were all throwing up mouthfuls of blood and had turned deathly pale.
One had to realize that all of the Evil Soul Masters that had been sent out on this operation were at least at the Soul King level, yet Zang Xin was still able to wreak such widespread havoc in an instant despite the fact that he was facing someone as powerful as the Dark Phoenix Douluo. This was the power of one of the two most powerful beings of the Tang Sect.
It had been over 50 years since the Heartless Douuo and the Amorous Douluo had unleashed their power in battle, and many people had already forgotten their abilities. Now that Zang Xin had stepped in to oppose these Evil Soul Masters, everyone was given another poignant reminder of just how fearsome he and Cao Dezhi were.
This was the name of Zang Xin's third soul skill.
The Dark Phoenix Douluo had also been affected by this, and she felt as if she had been taken back to the moment where Yun Ming had valiantly sacrifice himself to limit the explosions of the Godslayer missiles. Her heart was instantly overwhelmed by boundless remorse, and she didn't have any spare capacity to assist the other Evil Soul Masters.
Among those of the same cultivation rank, Evil Soul Masters were very powerful, and almost no normal Soul Masters could oppose them. However, in exchange for this power, they had to endure far more pain and suffering then normal Soul Masters, which resulted in more holes in their psyche to be exploited. Thus, to Evil Soul Masters, Amorous Douluo Zang Xin was even more fearsome than Heartless Douluo Cao Dezhi.
After unleashing three soul skills in succession, Zang Xin continued in his assault without any pause. The despair in his eyes quickly transitioned into the purest and sincerest emotions, and he finally thrust his Amorous Sword forward. Sword projections flashed, and a streak of dazzling and translucent light surged through the air. The sword projections were extremely grandiose and spectacular, and the Dark Phoenix Douluo was struck by the illusion that Zang Xin had already transformed into Yun Ming right before her eyes, and he was expressing to her the pain in his heart, as well as his most genuine emotions.
Zang Xin's eyes lit up further and further, and the light in his eyes fused as one with the sword projections from his Amorous Sword. There was no killing intent radiating from the sword whatsoever, but it was piercing through the air directly toward her.
Second soul skill, Genuine!
In the face of this soul skill, those with lackluster spiritual power would very likely end up dead before they even knew how they had perished. This was a soul skill that could impact a single target or an entire battlefield, and it could instantly reduce the enmity that his opponent's harbored toward him by a significant degree.
In the eyes of his enemies, this soul skill would make him appear as if he had transformed into the one that they trusted or loved the most.
However, the Dark Phoenix Douluo was a rank 97 Hyper Douluo, which made her one of the most powerful beings in the dark world of Evil Soul Masters, and the lethal threat concealed within the Genuine soul skill instantly made her soul core tighten.
The man standing before her eyes was clearly Yun Ming, and he was laying his heart bare for her to see, but she had to grit her teeth with all her might and scream at herself over and over again that this wasn't real.
She was finally forced to release her seventh soul skill, and a slightly hoarse phoenix cry rang out as she transformed into a massive black phoenix.
It had been many years since she had last seen Zang Xin, and even though they were acquainted with one another, she had never faced Zang Xin in battle before, so she didn't know just how powerful he was. Only during this first clash was she truly made aware of just how fearsome this veteran Limit Douluo was. Even with her immense powers, she was struck by a sense of powerlessness in his presence. She didn't care about all of the other Evil Soul Masters anymore; all she wanted was to get away from this place and away from this terrifying man as quickly as possible.
The black phoenix vigorously flapped its wings, releasing a vast expanse of dark purple light, which was constantly crumbling in the face of the Amorous Sword, but it at least bought her some time. Taking advantage of this opportunity, she turned and fled without any hesitation.
"You're not getting away," Zang Xin called out in a gentle voice.
He had finally tracked down one of the four heavenly monarchs of the Holy Spirit Cult; how could he allow her to get away?
Zang Xin heaved a faint sigh as he vanished on the spot, and the domain around him underwent a peculiar transformation.
The translucent domain suddenly took on more substance, and everything in the surrounding area transformed into the past Shrek Academy. There was a gargantuan tree, and the top of which stood a young man. This was a white-robed young man who had a head of flowing long hair, and held a spear in his hand.
He was merely standing still on the spot, but it was as if he were the core of the entire world.
He had once dominated the Soul Master world and was considered to be an invincible being. Countless female Soul Masters of the highest caliber had confessed their love to him, but he turned down all of them without any hesitation to pursue the woman he loved.
Countless powerful beings had challenged him in the hope of dethroning this legendary man, only to fall before his Divine Atlas Spear.
The giant black phoenix flew toward him, seemingly in an uncontrollable manner, and no matter how vigorously it flapped its wings, it was unable to get away from him.
From the perspective of those outside the domain, the black phoenix was simply flying in circles around Zang Xin.
The Amorous One is Left to Rue What Could've Been domain was certainly not that easy to free oneself from, and countless powerful beings had fallen within it.
This was a culmination of both his battle armor domain and his spiritual domain. His battle armor domain was known simply as "Amorous", and he had named his own spiritual domain "To Rue What Could've Been", and the combination of the two thus resulted in this domain.
Even the almighty Dark Phoenix Douluo had instantly fallen under the control of this domain, thereby adding another feather to the already illustrious cap of the number one control system Soul Master on the continent.
"Kukuku, kukuku! As expected of the Limit Douluo who's considered to be the least favorable opponent among his peers; Dark Phoenix is no match for you. I don't really like her, but I can't let you kill her! Greetings, Amorous Douluo."
A peal of tinkling laughter suddenly rang out, and it should've been quite a pleasing sound to the ears, but it was somehow extremely eerie instead, and sent chills running down the listener's spine.
Zang Xin's brows furrowed slightly upon hearing this. It was quite incredible that this woman had gotten so close to him while escaping his detection. He had already guessed that the Holy Spirit Cult had more powerful beings lurking in the shadows, but he didn't think that this would be someone who was just as, if not more, powerful than the Dark Phoenix Douluo.
A figure slowly skipped her way out of the darkness, and this was a little girl who appeared to be in her teens. Her eyes were pure and adorable, and her hair had been arranged into a pair of buns on her head, thereby further contributing to her youthful and energetic appearance.
She wore a short-sleeve mini dress that revealed her fair arms and legs, and as she skipped along, the buns in her hair gradually began to undo themselves, hanging down as a pair of large braids on either side of her head like a pair of elongated bunny ears. The full length of her hair quickly trailed down onto the ground behind her.Previous Chapter Next Chapter
