Chapter 516 - Gu Yue's Fury
The Bluesilver Golden Array stripped its surrounding of light and darkness, but could not completely dispel the darkness in the arena. It could only provide a safe haven for Tang Wulin and Gu Yue.
Gu Yue raised her staff. The gem shone bright gold and light exploded around her, rushing
towards the array to help push back the encroaching darkness.
Yuanen Yehui and Yue Zhengyu’s forms could slowly be seen as the dark haze thinned. Yue Zhengyu held a shimmering holy blade by his side while Yuanen Yehui’s demonic blade exuded a dark auras. Both raised their swords above their heads to pierce the sky. They let out mighty shouts as five-meter tall elemental phantoms appeared behind them.
Darkness and light shot outward as they snapped open their wings, the two auras incompatible like fire and water and struggling to dominate over the other.
This was Yuanen Yehui’s third soul skill, Fallen Angel Descends and Yue Zhengyu’s fourth, Holy Angel Descends. They had used the Curtain of Darkness to buy themselves enough time to empower themselves to their peak.
The two turned to face Tang Wulin and slashed down with their swords. Gold and violet beams of light surged out of their swords, flying toward Tang Wulin. As they neared their target, they converged, then met. An explosion erupted with the collision of the two beams, their chaotic energies mixing and rejecting each other kicking up a frenzy of winds and reaching Tang Wulin.
This was the result of Yuanen Yehui’s efforts after losing to Tang Wulin and Gu Yue’s soul fusion skill. She had wracked her brains to come up with a way to defeat the two and ultimately began researching methods with Yue Zhengyu. Under normal circumstances, light and darkness reject each other. However, their swords were condensed forms of light and darkness respectively. As long as they didn’t touch, there was minimal interference between them. With the amplification of Fallen Angel Descends and Holy Angel Descends, their swords reach new heights of power and when the two unleashed attacks of condensed light and darkness energy, the resulting explosion would produce an attack far greater than they could ever achieve by themselves.
Today was the first time they put this combo attack into action. Not even the Bluesilver Golden Array could disperse this much elemental energy at once. Their attack was unstoppable.
Yuanen Yehui’s eyes shone with expectation as she watched the explosion of light and darkness bloom. Come on! Use your soul fusion skill! You guys can’t endure this any other way!
After carefully researching Tang Wulin and Gu Yue’s Divine Dragon Transformation, she came to the conclusion that such a powerful form couldn’t be maintained for an extended length of time. The earlier she could bait them into using the skill, the more advantageous her position would be. She planned to wait out the Divine Dragon Transformation, then use her and Yue Zhengyu’s combo attack again to finish Tang Wulin and Gu Yue off. The longer the battle was drawn out, the better their position.
But just before the explosive blast struck Tang Wulin, Yuanen Yehui saw his scales shine bright as mirrors. He stepped in front of Gu Yue and spread his arms wide, taking the full brunt of the elemental attack. His scales flashed even brighter as he weathered the storm of elemental energies.
Tang Wulin felt as if he was being torn to shreds. The elements of light and darkness clashed and raged bigger and brighter like oil and fire. While Golden Dragon Tyrant Body enabled him to endure up to three times his body’s limit, this elemental explosion surpassed his expectations. Despite his blood essence rapidly depleting, he gritted his teeth and continued to endure.
Tang Wulin and Gu Yue had been caught off guard when the twin beams converged, and by the time they realised what was happening, the elements were thrown into chaos and Gu Yue was unable to teleport them out.
I have to endure! I can’t retreat! Gu Yue is right behind me! Tang Wulin’s body groaned with the strain, his eyes going bloodshot from resisting. Light surrounded his right hand and manifested his gauntlet. Then it spread to his chest, which turned into a breastplate. With the power of two pieces of battle armor, he could hold on.
The chaos of elemental energies gradually died down. The dust settled, revealing Tang Wulin’s tattered form. Despite his sorry state, he had not yielded a single inch. There was a fierce glint in his eyes and he let out a draconic roar.
Tang Wulin stepped forward with the oppressive aura of an absolute tyrant. After absorbing the elemental attack, his body was filled with energy. His first golden soul ring lit up as he marched onward. A golden array spread out beneath him. Empowered by Golden Dragon Body, it spanned the entire stage and was much stronger than before.
Yuanen Yehui and Yue Zhenyu felt their elemental energy drain from their body. Soon, they couldn’t even support their wings which disappeared into the background. Bluesilver Golden Array had them utterly helpless.
In a silver flash, Gu Yue appeared before them. She slammed the butt of her staff into the ground, unleashing a barrage of fire, water, wind, and earth elements that joined together to form an elemental storm in an instant. The storm crashed into Yuanen Yehui and Yue Zhengyu, sending them flying.
Yuanen Yehui switched martial souls and confronted the storm in her Diamond Titan form, so she wasn’t seriously injured. Yue Zhengyu, however, didn’t have a second martial soul to fall back on and took the full brunt of the storm. A beam of light descended on him and he was beside Elder Cai the next second.
Gu Yue’s face was emotionless like a calm lake. She simply pointed her staff at Yuanen Yehui to direct its full might at her.That wasn’t all. Gu Yue kept firing small balls of blue fire, wind, ice, and earth into the storm to increase its strength.
Yuanen Yehui had nowhere to escape to now. Anywhere she moved and she would be attacked by the elemental balls. Even if she tried to break out through brute strength, Gu Yue could control this elemental storm with her inhuman spiritual power and make it collapse on her.
This was Gu Yue’s fury, her wrath. This was her full might unleashed upon those who hurt Tang Wulin.
When Gu Yue had teleported to the frontline, she had caught a glimpse of Tang Wulin’s tattered state. Of the pain and blood dripping out a corner of his mouth.
The first grade students collectively gulped nervously. They knew the consequences of angering her.
The elemental storm bombarded Yuanen Yehui with attack after attack, battering her defenses like paper being shredded. Her Air Cannons were useless against the elemental balls as the intense heat of the blue fireballs distorted the flight path of the air blasts and the wind tore it to shreds. Then the ice deflected the blasts with extreme centripetal velocity and the earth acted as indestructible impact absorbers. There was nothing she could do but to endure with Diamond Titan. She was completely suppressed!
Tang Wulin was caught in astonishment as well. He had known Gu Yue was strong and that he was no match for her, but he hadn’t known just how wide the gap between them was until now.Previous Chapter Next Chapter
