Chapter 728: Scaring Powerful Enemies Away

Chu Xuanji’s face turned pale with fright as he stared blankly at Nie Tian and the Bone Blood Demon, his hands trembling slightly. “They, they all died?!”

He wondered what secret magic Nie Tian had just unleashed on these Soul realm experts that neutralized their attacks and plunged them into a chaotic state that allowed him to slaughter them all with the Bone Blood Demon’s terrifying strength.

Numerous broken spiritual tools floated silently around the Bone Blood Demon, along with Hong Xian and the others’ corpses.

After the strike, the Bone Blood Demon’s flesh power that had been as immense as the sea seemed to rapidly run low.

Chu Xuanji could tell that the Bonebrute puppet had consumed most of its power after this battle.

Nie Tian, who was stuck to the Bone Blood Demon’s chest, was panting as he tried to calm his raging inner aura. Even though a thirst for blood could still be seen in his eyes, he was clearly weakened.

Chu Xuanji knew that this would be the perfect opportunity to kill him.

However, he couldn’t help but feel scared as his eyes met Nie Tian’s.

He hesitated briefly before eventually giving up on the idea. He stood on one of his flying banners and left like a streak of light.

“Senior Chu!” Yin Yanan from the Beast-controlling Sect called out to him in an attempt to stop him.

However, Chu Xuanji acted as if he didn’t hear her. He accelerated and sped off into the distance without sparing her a single glance.

Yin Yanan wasn’t a member of the Chu Clan. It wasn’t his responsibility to look after her. Now that Hong Xian had died, he naturally wouldn’t risk his life for hers.

“You need to go, Yin Yanan!” Qiao Yunxi shouted, standing on her Flame Bird.

Now that Nie Tian had become one with the Bone Blood Demon and was bewitched by the negative emotions unleashed by the Phantasm soul, she felt like she didn’t know him anymore.

She was even afraid that he would continue killing under the Phantasm soul’s influence.

With Chu Xuanji gone, she and Yin Yanan were the only ones that remained in this place. Even though she didn’t care for Yin Yanan, she didn’t want her killed by Nie Tian, which she believed would bring more trouble to the Divine Flame Sect.

Yin Yanan was the most valued core disciple of the Beast-controlling Sect. They considered her to be the future of their sect, which made her much more important than the late Soul realm Hong Xian.

They would offend the Beast-controlling Sect by killing Hong Xian and a few other Soul realm experts, but it would be salvageable.

However, if Yin Yanan died at Nie Tian’s hands, the Beast-controlling Sect would wage war and fight the Divine Flame Sect to the last man.

“Do I leave?” Yin Yanan fixed Nie Tian with a hateful stare. Clearly, she didn’t want to leave just yet.

Hong Xian and the other Soul realm experts from the Beast-controlling Sect had all died at Nie Tian’s hands. Chu Xuanji had fled, while Wei Yu had sustained heavy injuries, passed out, and been carried away by their sect members.

The three parties had suffered devastating losses.

She desired revenge, but felt very helpless.

At this moment, her Frost Blood Python didn’t even have the courage to get anywhere near the Bone Blood Demon.

She had thought that Chu Xuanji would stay and fight side by side with her. Who would have thought that he would flee without putting up a fight?

While hesitating, she noticed that the six fierce discarnate souls, which also seemed rather afraid of Nie Tian, were hovering around in the vicinity.

The reason why they hadn’t chased after Chu Xuanji was probably because they knew that he was too powerful for them.

Yin Yanan pondered for a few seconds before finally gritting her teeth and deciding to leave under the Frost Blood Python’s protection.

The Frost Blood Python suddenly turned around and sped off.

Upon seeing this, the six fierce discarnate souls instantly pounced on it.

They almost instantly caught up to the Frost Blood Python. Wisps of soul power flew out of the Frost Blood Python’s icy eyes and engaged in a fierce battle against the discarnate souls.

Qiao Yunxi also thought about leaving Nie Tian, who was currently very dangerous.

However, her expression flickered as she saw what was happening to Yin Yanan.

Yin Yanan still had a powerful hybrid spirit beast to protect her, while she only had the Flame Bird, which she didn’t think would be able to protect her from soul attacks.

Caught in a dilemma, she shouted, “What happened to you, Nie Tian?!”

At this moment, Nie Tian was still enveloped in the Primal Chaos, lights of various colors flying about inside.

The Bone Blood Demon was floating at the center, completely motionless, with Nie Tian at its chest, his eyes closed.

Eyebrows furrowed, Nie Tian didn’t seem to be able to hear her.

From time to time, deadly powers would still dash across the Primal Chaos, which covered a thousand meter radius around him.

Neither Qiao Yunxi nor Yin Yanan knew that Nie Tian only didn’t pursue Chu Xuanji right after the first round because he simply couldn’t.

The Phantasm soul had launched another soul attack.

The icy soul awareness from the Phantasm soul once again generated all sorts of illusions to bewitch him and attack his sea of awareness with unique Phantasm magics.

Nie Tian had consumed a significant amount of every sort of power to merge with the Bone Blood Demon with his newly-awakened bloodline talent and slaughter all those experts.

By the time the battle ended, the Bone Blood Demon had lost ninety percent of its flesh power.

Nie Tian himself had consumed almost all of his soul power, which had given the Phantasm soul an opportunity.

In fact, the moment the Phantasm soul had attacked his soul, the Life Blend between him and the Bone Blood Demon had come to an end.

Even though he was still stuck to the Bone Blood Demon’s chest, his battle prowess had dropped sharply.

WHOOSH! WHOOSH! WHOOSH!

The wisps of soul power he had unleashed earlier returned from the Primal Chaos to help him defend his sea of awareness.

Meanwhile, the Primal Chaos was also having a great influence on the Phantasm soul.

It seemed to be stopping the Phantasm soul from bringing out the true might of its magics.

After a few failed attempts, the Phantasm soul once again withdrew like an ebbing tide.

Nie Tian let out a long breath as he opened his eyes.

He examined the Bone Blood Demon, and realized that it had only ten percent of its strength left. Even if he launched Life Blend again, the amount of damage he could deal would be limited.

This wouldn’t change unless he could find more powerful outsiders’ blood for the Bone Blood Demon to refine and recover strength.

As a thought entered his mind, the Bone Blood Demon flew back into his ring of holding.

At that moment, Qiao Yunxi saw that his eyes had become clear again, and she could no longer see the thirst for blood in them.

“Are, are you okay now?!” Qiao Yunxi asked.

Nie Tian nodded. “Yeah, for now.” 

As Qiao Yunxi came over on her Flame Bird, he leapt on board and said, “We need to get out of here and go as far as we can. We can’t let people from those three parties find us.”

Qiao Yunxi pointed at the Frost Blood Python, which was fighting the six fierce souls. “Yin Yanan is still there. Those souls are attacking her.”

Eyebrows furrowed, Nie Tian looked over with rapt attention, and discovered that the six fierce souls were hovering over the Frost Blood Python like a large vortex, which greatly resembled the Spirit God Sect’s Grand Soul Grind.

Both the Frost Blood Python and Yin Yanan seemed in agony. From the look of it, they wouldn’t be able to hang on for much longer.

“That has nothing to do with us,” Nie Tian said with a grim face.

“She can’t die!” Qiao Yunxi shouted. “If she dies, the Beast-controlling Sect will go crazy!”

“I’ve already killed Hong Xian and many others from the Beast-controlling Sect,” Nie Tian said indifferently. “They’ll go crazy anyways.”

“She’s different!” With these words, Qiao Yunxi ignored Nie Tian’s attitude and flew the Flame Bird towards Yin Yanan. 

As she did, she exclaimed, “Do something!”

Seeing this, Nie Tian’s expression flickered as he was forced to take out the Spirit Pearl.

To his surprise, the Phantasm soul didn’t try anything. Perhaps it had consumed too much power.

As the Flame Bird flew close, the six discarnate souls scattered and fled in different directions.

Yin Yanan was saved.
