Chapter 1240: Battling the Dark Bell

"Ding!" A dark green bell appeared out of thin air and let loose a crisp chime, upon which the four-colored ball of light abruptly faltered before exploding to unleash a terrifying energy storm. At the same time, a dark green light barrier appeared in front of Na Nali, shielding her and Tang Wulin from the oncoming energy blasts.

In the instant after Gu Yuena unleashed those four balls of light, she swept her right hand through the air, and her soul rings appeared around her, following which a thin and long elemental staff appeared in her grasp. She drew a circle with the staff in the air, conjuring up a silver ring of light. Na Nali faltered slightly upon seeing this, and in the next instant, an identical silver ring had appeared beneath her feet.

Silver light flashed, and before she had a chance to resist, she found herself standing right in front of Gu Yuena.

This was spatial teleportation, and she had used it on an enemy!

Na Nali was well and truly astonished. This woman's elemental control abilities were simply extraordinary! At her cultivation rank, even if she had been caught off guard, she shouldn't have been passively teleported so easily!

Gu Yuena's movements were smooth and flowing like those of an artist. As soon as the silver ring of light was conjured up, she seemed to have already determined that Na Nali wouldn't be able to escape her teleportation. She thrust her left hand toward the ring of light, and by the time Na Nali was teleported to her, the former was greeted by the sight of a completely golden palm that was thrusting directly toward her.

Light elements that were so dense that they were almost in a solid form erupted forth, and Na Nali could only raise her arms to protect herself in the face of this abrupt turn of events.

In the instant that she was teleported to Gu Yuena, the white-robed young man beside her also reacted to the situation, and nine soul rings instantly emerged beneath his feet, consisting of seven blacks and two reds. His third soul ring lit up, and a strange weapon instantly appeared in his hand, which he swept horizontally through the air.

This was a halberd that resembled a long spear, except there was a crescent blade on each side of the tip of the weapon. With the activation of his soul skill, the halberd turned into a scorching white color, and as he swung it through the air, an enormous burst of suction force erupted from it. One of the crescent blades on the weapon instantly reached Na Nali's neck, and everything had happened so quickly that Tang Wulin and Na Nali were left reeling by this turn of events.

Who could've envisioned that Gu Yuena would suddenly lash out in such an abrupt and devastating manner?

Furthermore, she seemed to have great synergy and teamwork with the white-robed young man, who was also an extremely powerful Titled Douluo in his own right, as exemplified by his exceptional soul ring configuration. Even compared to the soul rings of Na Nali, he was only missing a 100,000-year-old soul ring.

In the face of these sudden attacks, Na Nali displayed her power as one of the four heavenly monarchs. She let loose a delicate harrumph, sending soundwaves piercing into the listeners' mind, and the white-robed young man's attack clearly faltered for an instant as a result. Right at this moment, her palm clashed with Gu Yuena's and a dull thump immediately rang out.

Gu Yuena's body swayed slightly, and countless bursts of dark green energy instantly surged toward her body amid shrill howls of anguish.

In contrast, a layer of golden light had appeared over Na Nali's body, and on the surface, it appeared that Na Nali had seized the clear upper hand. However, she certainly wasn't enjoying herself. The extremely rich light elements from Gu Yuena's palm had surged directly into her body through her palm before clashing violently with the dark energy inside her.

Just as Na Nali was steeling herself to repress her agony and take down Gu Yuena, the elemental staff in Gu Yuena's hand suddenly tapped onto the ground.

A dull boom rang out, and a silver halo abruptly erupted outward with her body at its very center. The force of this attack caused Na Nali to stumble slightly, and the halberd finally arrived in this instant.

The attack from the halberd was imbued with immense force and unstoppable momentum! Na Nali was far more powerful than the white-robed young man, but the offensive power from such a top-tier tool martial soul was simply far too tremendous; taking this attack head-on definitely wouldn't be a good idea for her. As such, Na Nali could only duck down while hurriedly darting backward in a wraith-like manner, drawing upon the power of Gu Yuena's spatial elemental blast to aid herself in her retreat.

How were these two so powerful? The white-robed young man was most likely already close to the Hyper Douluo level, but Na Nali was more wary of Gu Yuena as she found herself struggling to comprehend what Gu Yuena's exact power level was. She only had eight soul rings, consisting of seven blacks and one red, but as a powerful being who was extremely close to the Limit Douluo level, Na Nali had extremely sharp senses, and all of her senses were telling her that this woman posed a far bigger threat than the halberd-wielding young man.

"Run!" An extremely faint voice sounded beside Tang Wulin's ears. At the same time, Gu Yuena raised her elemental staff high up into the air.

Water, fire, earth, wind, light, and spatial elements instantly manifested themselves in a physical form, conjuring up a vast expanse of six-colored light that swirled around the beautiful gem on the tip of her staff. The six-colored light formed a giant vortex, and a burst of extremely powerful suction force acted upon Na Nali's body, quickly drawing her toward the vortex.

At this moment, countless projections of the white-robed young man had also appeared, and they dispersed before converging toward a single target. It was as if he had suddenly been cloned thousands of times, and all of the projections seemed extremely realistic. This was an immensely powerful attack that even Tang Wulin couldn't help but be in awe of.

He tapped his foot onto the ground without any hesitation and instantly spread open his golden wings. He flapped his wings vigorously and almost instantly flew over 100 meters away, then rapidly fled from the train station.

It wasn't that he didn't want to join forces with Gu Yuena. With the white-robed young man's assistance, there was a chance that they could even detain Na Nali. However, he had absolute trust in Gu Yuena; she had told him to run, so she naturally had her reasons. Furthermore, Gu Yuena had clearly become far more powerful than before, and with the white-robed young man's assistance, there was no way that Na Nali would be able to defeat them.

Na Nali could sense that Tang Wulin was fleeing the scene, and she immediately flew into a thunderous rage. She let loose a sharp cry, and her Dark Bell instantly expanded while her pupils turned into a dark green color.

"Ding, ding, ding!" The bell chimed thrice in succession, and over two-thirds of the white-robed young man's projections were instantly shattered, while the light above Gu Yuena's head also crumbled.

Na Nali then immediately rushed off in pursuit of Tang Wulin. She couldn't afford to be delayed by these two; capturing Tang Wulin was her top priority.

However, Gu Yuena definitely wasn't going to allow her to get away. An icy blue streak of light instantly surged toward her, and Na Nali waved a hand to swivel her Dark Bell around to act as a shield against the oncoming attack.

In her eyes, there was still a significant disparity between their powers, so if she wanted to escape, her two opponents definitely wouldn't be able to stop her.

However, her judgment proved to be incorrect on this occasion.

A burst of glacial aura instantly swept forth, making her feel as if her entire mind had been frozen solid, and she plummeted from the sky like a dead weight. The massive halberd also struck her in a vicious manner thereafter, and in this dire situation, Na Nali abruptly fused as one with her Dark Bell, so the halberd struck the bell amid a thunderous clang.

As a result, the white-robed young man shuddered as if he had suffered an electronic shock, and blood began to pour out of his nose and mouth. This was the most fearsome aspect about a soundwave-type martial soul. Even if it were being struck by an attack, it could retaliate by using the clash to unleash soundwave attacks of its own.

However, Na Nali certainly wasn't enjoying herself, either. Her Dark Bell still hadn't fully recovered after being struck by the Dragonslaying Saber, so being struck by the halberd now certainly wasn't doing her any favors.

Cracks instantly appeared over a large area of the Dark Bell's surface, and Na Nali was at the height of her fury. Her eighth soul ring instantly lit up, and a terrifying bell chime rang out across the entire train station. Even the sky above the train station had turned a dark green color in the blink of an eye.

In the air above, a massive bell with a radius in excess of 50 meters began to sway, and if it were allowed to chime, all of the living beings in the entire train station would most likely be reduced to dust in an instant.

However, right at this moment, an authoritative voice rang out from above. "Don't you dare!"

The sky turned a scorching white color, and a powerful pillar of dazzling light descended from above, piercing directly through the huge bell in the air. Na Nali let loose an anguished cry and gritted her teeth before throwing up a mouthful of black blood. At the same time, she fused into the black blood and fled into the distance as a streak of crimson light, flying away as quickly as a shooting star.

This was her darkness secret technique, Blood Flee. [This is most definitely turning into a xianxia LOL. I translate RMJI as well, which is a xianxia through and through, and this sequence of events is soooo reminiscent of what I'm constantly translating in RMJI.]

The white-robed young man was about to give chase, but the authoritative voice up above sounded again. "Let her go."

Light flashed, and a figure descended out of nowhere, positioning himself in front of the white-robed young man and Gu Yuena. "Don't chase a cornered beast. I didn't think members of the Holy Spirit Cult would dare to appear in Heaven Dou City again."
