Chapter 1566: Retaliation

At this critical juncture, the air around him suddenly twisted, causing Tang Wulin's Dragon Emperor Break to falter momentarily, and this split-second delay was enough for Xie Xie to vanish on the spot.

This was his Space Time Travel!

He wouldn't be able to do this against the complete version of Dragon Emperor Break, but this hurried abridged version afforded him the opportunity to escape into time and space.

At the same time, the Divine Cloudvortex Titan Fist arrived.

All of a sudden, Tang Wulin's eyes turned golden, and golden dragon scales appeared all along his left arm as he retaliated with a simple punch of his own.

There was a layer of dragon's repulse over the surface of his fist that was over a foot thick, but strangely enough, this layer of dragon's repulse was shrinking as his fist traveled through the air.

Yuanen Zhentian's pupils contracted slightly upon seeing this. His dragon's repulse wasn't shrinking; it was compressing inward into dense layers.

"Thump!"

A dull thump rang out as Tang Wulin's fist came into contact with the oncoming Divine Cloudvortex Titan Fist. This wasn't the sound of the clash. Instead, it was the sound of Tang Wulin's powerful heartbeat.

The resounding boom erupted through the entire area, and it was also at this instant that his bloodline power surged forth in a frenzy.

"Boom!"

Powerful shockwaves erupted forth, and a layer of golden light appeared in an area with a diameter of dozens of meters around Tang Wulin. Meanwhile, the Divine Cloudvortex Titan Fist disintegrated as a vast expanse of brown light.

Tang Wulin stood still on the spot, while Yuanen Yehui's expression changed slightly as she took three steps backward, leaving deep footprints on the ground, and her face also paled slightly.

Tang Wulin had struggled to deal with both Er Ming and Yuanen Zhentian's Divine Titan Fists, and that prompted him to find a counter through controlling and altering his own power. He had named this punch "Golden Dragon Stacked Explosion", and even though it wasn't as powerful as his Dragon Emperor Restriction Techniques, he could forcibly compress his dragon's repulse with his immense spiritual power, and that, combined with the bloodline eruption from his Body Sect congenital secret method, created an extremely powerful attack.

Following the creation of his two Dragon Emperor Restriction Techniques, Tang Wulin was able to progress more quickly in his cultivation and also combine all of his abilities more effectively.

Right as the explosion took place, Tang Wulin suddenly felt a chill run down his spine, and Xie Xie abruptly emerged behind him before slashing a shimmering golden dagger toward the back of his neck.

The timing of the attack was perfect, and it was very remarkable that he had managed to phase through space to get behind Tang Wulin even amid such a terrifying clash. A clash of this caliber was powerful enough to shatter space and make it extremely unstable and difficult to traverse through.

Thick mirror-like golden scales appeared on the back of Tang Wulin's neck, and at the same time, he suddenly swept his right hand backward, unleashing five lethal blades of golden light that formed an inescapable net; this was none other than his Golden Dragon Annihilation Claws!

In the face of the fearsome attack unleashed by Tang Wulin's Duskgold Dreadclaw Bear right palm bone, Xie Xie began to display his true power.

In the blink of an eye, he phased in and out of existence five times, traversing through the peerlessly sharp claw projections. It looked as if he were going to be sliced in half at any moment, but the Golden Dragon Annihilation Claws were simply unable to hit him.

In the end, his Light Dragon Dagger still managed to strike the back of Tang Wulin's neck, and a high-pitched screeching sound immediately rang out.

All of a sudden, the scales on the back of Tang Wulin's neck stood up on end, then attempted to forcibly lock themselves around the Light Dragon Dagger. At the same time, he leaned backward, and a burst of dragon's repulse erupted out of his back like a cannonball.

Xie Xie wore a serious expression as he swept his left hand upward, and at the same time, he phased in and out of existence again thrice in rapid succession.

In the blink of an eye, he had arrived beside Tang Wulin, and even Yuanen Zhentian couldn't see how he had gotten there. Having evaded Tang Wulin's dragon repulse attack, Xie Xie unleashed a net of dagger projections with his Light Dragon Dagger and Shadow Dragon Dagger, slicing a series of marks onto Tang Wulin's golden dragon scales.

Not only did his speed make him completely untraceable to the naked eye, one would struggle to track him even with their spiritual power.

Xie Xie's incredible speed and his ability to phase in and out of existence at will struck one with the feeling that he was everywhere at once.

His attacks came from all directions, and he was doing everything in his power to pose a hindrance to Tang Wulin, thereby preventing him from being able to unleash his full power.

At this point, Yuanen Yehui had also arrived silently beside Tang Wulin, and four inky-black wings were unfurled on her back as she adopted her Fallen Angel form.

Purplish-black flames surged forth as her sword was slashed toward Tang Wulin's side like lightning.

Despite being sandwiched between Xie Xie and Yuanen Yehui's attacks, Tang Wulin didn't panic in the slightest. He stomped his right foot onto the ground to unleash his Golden Dragon Shakes the Earth, and eight golden dragons instantly rose up from the ground. Using this attack, he was stirring up space and unleashing powerful repulsive force.

At the same time, he activated his Mountain Dragon King torso bone's gravitational control ability, instantly causing the gravity within a diameter of 50 meters around him to increase tenfold.

As a result, both Yuanen Yehui and Xie Xie slowed down for an instant, and that was all the time that was required for Tang Wulin to unleash his Golden Dragon Roar.

However, right at this moment, Xie Xie swept his right hand toward Yuanen Yehui, and their bodies took on an illusionary quality in unison, as if they had suddenly ascended above this world, allowing them to be completely unaffected by the Golden Dragon Roar.

In the next instant, the two of them appeared right above Tang Wulin at the same time, thereby evading the Golden Dragon Shakes the Earth. Yuanen Yehui switched back to her Titan Giant Ape martial soul, while Xie Xie's body was revolving at a high speed like a spinning top, crashing down directly toward the top of Tang Wulin's head. Yuanen Yehui slammed her hands onto the soles of his feet, unleashing her Divine Cloudvortex Fists, and in that instant, Xie Xie's rotation reached a truly incredible speed.

Visually, it was as if he had become a sharp needle that was spearing down toward Tang Wulin. 

Yuanen Zhentian had witnessed Tang Wulin's powers, and he had thought that Yuanen Yehui and Xie Xie would stand no chance against Tang Wulin, but much to his surprise, the two of them had constantly held the upper hand over Tang Wulin in this sparring match.

Their teamwork could only be described as flawless, and even the Titled Douluos present were stunned by how lethal their combination was.

Yuanen Yehui seemed to have only switched to her Fallen Angel martial soul in order to get close to Tang Wulin in the shortest possible time, but the combination attack that she unleashed with Xie Xie immediately thereafter was definitely something that couldn't have been executed without years of training together.

The two of them combined were far more powerful than the sum of their constituent parts.

A chill ran down Tang Wulin's spine, and he didn't even have to look to know that this was an attack he definitely wouldn't be able to withstand, even if he were to don his suit of three-word battle armor.

For the first time, he was struck by a sense of intense peril.

However, it was always at times like this where he was the calmest and able to make the fastest decisions.

A beam of golden light erupted from the top of his head, and at the same time, a ball of bright golden light erupted beneath his feet.

Dragon scales appeared all over his body, and a crisp ringing sound rang out as the golden light struck the sharp tip of the figurative spinning top that was Xie Xie.

The golden light only managed to slow Xie Xie down for an instant before he continued to descend like lightning, but that was already enough.

Time stopped as he unleashed his Time Reversal domain again, and during this brief moment of respite, Tang Wulin reached out to grab the beam of golden light that had emerged from the top of his head before unleashing his Fury of the Masses.

The beam of golden light was none other than his Golden Dragon Spear!

"Clang!"

Tang Wulin shuddered as he stumbled to the side, and right at this moment, Yuanen Yehui came crashing down in her Titan Giant Ape form, swinging her fists down toward Tang Wulin with devastating force.

At the same time, Xie Xie suddenly vanished into thin air amid his rapid rotation.
