Chapter 693 - The Hell’s Gate
Having donned their battle armor, Dai Yueyan and Yuanen Yehui could move more than twice as quick as before. Immediately after he landed back on the stage, the fourth price rushed forward again.
Yuanen Yehui flung out her right fist to meet his tiger claw.
The force sent them both backwards. With his one-word battle armor, the price had closed the gap between their strength. Yuanen Yehui’s advantage in physical power was gone.
Dai Yueyan raised his claws and flew at her again, using the Ghost Shadow Perplexing Track. Yuanen Yehui jumped back, parrying, but he followed, pressing the attack.
High, low, left, right, he rained down claws upon her, swinging so hard that sparks flew when his talons kissed her armor, driving her back on her heels. Yuanen Yehui was struggling to keep claws from skin.
“The fourth prince is getting the better of Yuanen Yehui,” commented Fang’er. “They are equal in terms of physical power, but the fourth price’s sharp tiger claws are giving him an advantage. There are already many gashes in Yuanen Yehui’s armor, as you can see. She hasn’t used her second martial soul though.” Her commentary was quite impartial, considering she was a citizen of the Star Luo Empire.
The audience was relieved; their hearts had leapt up into their mouths when Yuanen Yehui slammed their prince onto the ground.
Dai Yueyan lunged, sending his right claw straight at Yuanen Yehui’s chest. The girl blocked with her arm, but he had used so much force in that thrust that her gauntlet came away dented. She leapt away, her body rapidly shrinking, her jet-black wings appearing.
Dai Yueyan snorted and used his fourth soul skill, White Tiger Devil Slash. He slashed at Yuanen Yehui extremely fast, sending so many beams of white light towards her that it was impossible to dodge them all at such close range, even though by then she had gotten into her Fallen Angel form and her speed had shot up.
The ferocious-looking beast had disappeared, and in its stead was a voluptuous woman. The fourth soul ring around the winged angel started shining, and a round portal appeared. It was so black and horrifying that it seemed certain to lead to some hell. Yuanen Yehui dodged behind it, and the light beams vanished without a trace the moment they reached the black portal.
Dai Yueyan jumped back 10 yards, startled. What the hell is that? The fear of the unknown made him extremely cautious.
Even Yuanen Yehui’s teammates had never seen such a soul skill, because she had never used it before.
Piercing shrieks and wails arose from the portal, and suddenly a woman stepped out, fair of skin, slender of leg, and long of hair, with sexy leather underwear covering her breasts and private parts. She looked just like Yuanen Yehui, only she had two bloodred horns on her head.
“The Hell’s Gate!” Yue Zhengyu blurted out, his eyes wide. “No wonder I’ve never seen her use her fourth soul skill before.”
Xu Xiaoyan looked at him, aghast. “The Hell’s Gate?”
“Yes. She can use the Hell’s Gate to summon an evil Yuanen Yehui to fight for her. But if she uses this soul skill too often, she might be overpowered by Dark Yuanen Yehui and even possessed by her. Then she will become a devil.”
Once a soul master became a devil, his or her cultivation speed would soar. Devils were naturally more dangerous than evil soul masters, so his clan had decreed that those who could use the Hell’s Gate soul skill must be killed to avoid the worst.
Maybe she won’t let Dark Yuanen Yehui overpower her, Yue Zhengyu thought to himself, but once evil soul masters learn about this soul skill of hers, they will go to great lengths to catch her and make her turn into a devil. I can’t let that happen.
Gu Yue saw the look on Yue Zhengyu’s face. “There will be time for this later. Right now we should focus on the match,” she said.
The audience’s jaws dropped when they saw Dark Yuanen Yehui. “I don’t believe I’ve ever seen such a strange soul skill before,” Fang’er said, wonderstruck. “She is obviously not a clone. Let’s see what she can do.”
Dai Yueyan didn’t like what he was seeing, judging from the frown on his face, but the good thing was that Dark Yuanen Yehui wore no armor, so he opened his mouth and fired a beam of white light without hesitation.
Dark Yuanen Yehui didn’t dodge, giving a smile so dazzling that even Dai Yueyan was enchanted for a moment. Her stomach turned into black smoke where the light beam hit her, and instantly healed up.Previous Chapter Next Chapter
