Chapter 704 – The Terrifying Defense of the Giant Leviathan
Lin Ming took advantage of the time when Xuan Wuji was in closed door seclusion to use the Giant Leviathan to sweep across the South Sea Demon Region. Besides Xuan Wuji, the next strongest martial artist in the area was Xuan Yuqie, who had already been grievously wounded. The powerful and almighty South Sea Demon Region was in truth just an empty shell.
Sweeping away the South Sea Demon Region seemed like some astonishing event, but if one thought about it carefully, it was not much at all.
Without ascertaining if Xuan Wuji’s words were true or false, fearing the Giant Leviathan to this degree and allowing Lin Ming to take away their Yin Yang Profound Palace’s medicine garden… if Xuan Wuji’s words were really found out to be lies, then they truly would be laughed at to death.
“Maybe once the Giant Leviathan is attacked by a high-level Life Destruction martial artist, it would be enough to rip apart its flesh, causing it to die from massive blood loss?”
Xing Ji’s mind raced as he spoke to his wife with a true essence sound transmission.
If the husband and wife combo combined their forces, they would be capable of contending with a third stage Life Destruction powerhouse. In addition, with the ultimate final move they had created in recent years, the power of their strike would be immense. However, the weakness was that it took a long time to prepare and it might possibly miss. However, this wasn’t a problem with the Giant Leviathan. Even if they closed their eyes they would still be able to randomly aim and strike the beast. And even if attacking the back, forehead or other places with strong defenses was impossible, then what about the eyes or the mouth?
All of these thoughts crossed through Palace Master Xing Ji’s mind. The eyes weren’t easy to strike and they also had the protection of eyelids. But the mouth… because the Giant Leviathan used its tentacles to attack, its mouth was constantly open. Attacking its throat through the mouth was definitely the best method of all!
As Xing Ji thought of this, a fire lit in his heart. If he wasn’t bullied to the extreme by Lin Ming today, then he would never have thought of taking such a great risk.
“Husband, let’s attack together with everything we have. Yang’er has been wounded all over; it will take at least one to two years of hard work and effort to recover. If I don’t attack, then I’ll never be able to deal with this!” As Xing Can spoke, true essence revolved within her body. A current of icy blue water suddenly emerged out of thin air, wrapping around her. She wished that she could rip Lin Ming apart.
Seeing Xing Can preparing to attack, Xing Ji clenched his teeth and ignited his body with raging flames.
“Haha, Lin Ming, those two baby mice seem to be very unhappy with you, hm?” Demonshine happily gloated, “That’s right, such a… noble… fifth-grade sect was actually slapped and beat around by others. If they didn’t even try to retaliate they’d never be able to live this lying down!”
Lin Ming’s eyebrows shot up as he glanced over at Xing Can and Xing Ji as they combined their forces. The couple’s reputation was truly well deserved. If he had to face this strike alone, then there really would have been no way for him to defend against it. “Water and fire intersected. If they attack together, then the striking power behind their technique might double…”
Lin Ming didn’t stop the two from attacking. In fact, he wanted to know to just what degree did the Giant Leviathan’s defenses matched up to.
“Who the hell cares if it’s doubled or tripled? No matter how sharp a needle is, there’s no way you can stab a whale to death. Let them do whatever.” Demonshine smirked with disdain.
Outside of the dimension, Xing Ji and Xing Can had already been preparing their attack for several breaths of time.
Finally, they began.
As Lin Ming expected, once the two polar opposite energies mixed together, the power it produced was several times that of normal. A red energy and blue energy fused together, turning into a brilliant meteor that soared towards the Giant Leviathan’s mouth.
“They want to attack the Giant Leviathan’s throat through its mouth.” Lin Ming’s eyebrows shot up. He thought about ordering the tentacles to stop this attack, when Demonshine’s loud giggles suddenly sounded out in his mind.
“Two top-grade idiots! The Giant Leviathan is also called the ‘Great Swallowing Beast’. By just swallowing once, it can suck up all of the sea water in an area. If it opens its mouth, it can even suck in an entire city. This isn’t just some casual boast. This is because its mouth is simply a portal of space and time. It can transfer anything it swallows to another dimension. They want to attack the Giant Leviathan’s mouth? Hehe, even an early Divine Sea powerhouse would find such an attack to be useless!”
Hearing Demonshine’s words, Lin Ming also stopped worrying. He let the attack continue freely.
With a whistling sound, Xing Ji and Xing Can’s brilliant comet of energy shot into the Giant Leviathan’s pitch black maw. Although there was a terrifying energy within it, compared to the Giant Leviathan’s massive mouth, it could only be described as tiny.
The comet of energy rushed into the Giant Leviathan’s throat without being stopped. Xing Can and Xing Ji’s eyes brightened. They had done it!
They were originally afraid that the tentacles would stop their attack, but they never imagined that the tentacles would respond so slowly, allowing their attack to succeed.
The couple was immediately overjoyed. Although the surface of this giant beast had a strong defense, its insides must still be weak. Since their attack went inside without a problem, they waited to see what sort of destruction their mighty attack had caused to the Giant Leviathan.
After ten breaths’ of time passed, the Giant Leviathan didn’t even have the slightest reaction. Xing Ji’s happy expression froze on his face. The couple’s attack was like rain falling into the sea; it disappeared without a trace.
Xing Ji swallowed a mouthful of bitterness. He had thought that their combined attack might be unable to severely wound the Giant Leviathan, but he ever expected the disparity to be so great. Was the Giant Leviathan’s throat some sort of invulnerable fortress?
The couple looked at each other, each seeing a deep sense of powerlessness and fear reflected in the other’s eyes.
“How about it? Are you two using this method to express how unhappy you are?” Lin Ming’s voice sounded out from within the Giant Leviathan, echoing in all directions, loud and clear like a thunderclap.
Xing Ji and Xing Can’s words were caught in their throats, the didn’t dare to say anything in return.
“A man must always repay his debts. Since you attacked me once, then I will attack you once!” Lin Ming didn’t plan on completely annihilating Yin Yang Profound Palace. For such a large fifth-grade sect, it was simply impossible to cleanly destroy it. He didn’t want drifting dregs to bother him later. Moreover, they didn’t have any deep hatreds between them to begin with, at least, not enough for Lin Ming to completely demolish their sect and kill off all their families.
As Lin Ming’s voice fell, all of the surrounding energy rose up like a surging tide towards the Giant Leviathan, rapidly concentrating at its forehead.
“Husband, be careful!” Xing Can said as she bit down on her teeth. Today, the couple had to recognize that they had really stepped in sh*t.
Xing Ji didn’t fear the Giant Leviathan’s energy attack. Not only did it take an extremely long time to prepare but it was also inflexible. Dodging it would be easy.
However, he quickly discovered that he had been mistaken all along!
After Lin Ming gathered up a massive amount of energy, the direction he aimed at was the great temple of the Yin Yang Profound Palace. This was the core of the Yin Yang Profound Palace! Not to mention the various resources and wealth held there, but it was also a landmark of their Yin Yang Profound Palace. Once it was destroyed it would shake the minds of their people, giving yet another reason for everyone to laugh at their Yin Yang Profound Palace.
To have a 20 year old junior remove their entire medicine garden right in front of the two Palace Masters as well as destroy their Yin Yang Great Temple, just how would Yin Yang Profound Palace show their faces in front of others in the future?
“This attack is only 70% of the Giant Leviathan’s strength. If you try your hardest and give it your all, then perhaps you might be able to block it.” As soon as Lin Ming spoke his mind stirred and the space around the Giant Leviathan’s forehead began to distort. Countless dots of shining lights endlessly gathered into a circle. The terrifying energy fluctuations made one tremble with terror.
“Lin Ming, you remember me!”
Xing Ji’s eyes turned blood red. He would have been able to easily dodge this attack, but now he had been forced to withstand it. Today was absolutely the most bitter day of his life.
Energy completely erupted from the Giant Leviathan, turning into a 100 foot beam of blazing crimson light. It was like a red flood dragon that shot towards the Yin Yang Great Temple.
Xing Ji and Xing Can’s expressions completely changed. Both of them attacked together, a red and blue beam of energies firing into the blazing crimson beam.
True essence collided, setting off a terrifying storm and a violent shockwave. Xing Ji and Xing Can felt as if their chests were being forcefully pressed down before they were tossed out like leaves in a storm.
They weren’t seriously injured. But, they had been caught up in that massive storm of true essence, unable to keep their balance. True essence chaotically collided in their chests, making the two of them nearly cough up blood.
The density of energy within the Giant Leviathan’s attack wasn’t high, but the total amount of energy was truly scary.
They had finally failed to completely block the Giant Leviathan’s attack. The remaining one third of the energy smashed into the Yin Yang Great Temple, directly sending its dome flying off.
Seeing the Yin Yang Great Temple crack apart in front of them, they could only watch helplessly as they recalled the absolute difference in strength between them and the Giant Leviathan. It was like Xing Ji’s teeth had been knocked out and he could only swallow them; there was no way he could voice his hatred and grievance. As long as Lin Ming had the Giant Leviathan, there was simply no way they could provoke him. And, in another year or so, once Lin Ming grew further, they wouldn’t even be able to deal with just him anymore. Thinking about this, Xing Ji simply cut off all thoughts of opposing Lin Ming ever again.
Within the great and broad dimensions of the Giant Leviathan, the heaven and earth origin energy was incomparably rich. Lin Ming stood here, watching as several dozen tentacles passed into this dimension, slowly laying down the medicine garden into a long stretch of land.
With the help of the memories from the Realm of the Gods alchemist, Lin Ming was able to quickly recognize around 99% of these medicinal herbs. There were quite a few treasures here. Even if Lin Ming had very high standards, he was still very satisfied with several of the fire-attribute medicinal herbs.
“Yin Yang Profound Palace’s accumulated treasure for these past few thousand years is quite good; it’s not much worse off than the South Sea Demon Region’s medicine garden.
Lin Ming took out the Demon Heart Flower and the 10,000 Year Corpse Grass from his spatial ring and planted it into this new medicine garden. After several more years, this medicine garden would form a self-sufficient cycling system of origin energy. Once the medicine garden stabilized further, he could even plant down the seeds from the profound gold divine fruit as well as any future heavenly materials he found. All of this could be planted in this medicine garden. This would form a positive feedback loop that would allow the quality of this medicine garden to become increasingly high.
This would form a solid foundation for when Lin Ming decided to embark on the path of being an alchemist in the future.
Lin Ming randomly plucked some fire-attribute medicinal herbs that had matured, and then quietly stepped through a space barrier. In the next moment, he stepped into another dimension where the Divine Phoenix Island disciples were gathered.
Within the Giant Leviathan’s body, the dimensions were self-contained spaces. The largest of these dimensions was around 10 miles in diameter. In addition to the other dimensions, this was more than enough to house the more than 1000 disciples of Divine Phoenix Island without being crowded.
“Junior-apprentice Brother Lin!”
Seeing Lin Ming suddenly appear, the over 1000 Divine Phoenix Island disciples all appeared excited and overjoyed. Before this, Mu Fengxian and Mu Bingyun had already informed them of what had happened.
After hearing that Lin Ming was the legendary Divine Kingdom Crown Prince and that by just his strength alone, he had completely decimated the South Sea Demon Region, the disciples of Divine Phoenix Island felt as if they were living in a dream. In particular, those disciples that had some contact with Lin Ming before thought this was an even more bizarre and wonderful fantasy.
These past months, they had become accustomed to living like displaced refugees on the edge of death. But now, everything had changed. They could faintly feel that the time to counterattack the South Sea Demon Region had finally arrived!Previous Chapter Next Chapter
