The frightening force blew Tang Ya’s hair behind her. She was about to perish under Tie Li’s fists.
As a mere soul ancestor, Tang Ya should be proud of herself for killing almost the entire sect and even two soul kings. But she still had to pay the price for her recklessness. That price was her life.
“Dad, mom, I’m coming to find the both of you.” Tang Ya’s shut her purplish eyelids and two teardrops appeared at the corners of her eyes.
She wasn’t fearful, but reluctant in the face of death. Bei Bei’s smiling face filled her mind at this point.
However, when Tang Ya was supposed to be struck, she didn’t feel any pain. She groaned, and all the pressure was suddenly taken off her.
One was usually insensitive at the most desperate of times. Tang Ya only reacted after a few seconds, and opened her eyes.
Her fourth soul skill had already disappeared. The entire Ironblood Sect only had one corpse now. All the Ironblood Sect disciples that were killed by her previously had already been mummified by the Bluesilver Grass.
Tang Ya’s soul power had increased another level through this battle. She had reached Rank 44.
Tie Li was currently being held in the air by an elder in a black robe. The elder looked at Tang Ya calmly. He lifted his hand and threw Tie Li in front of her.
“He’s yours now. You can deal with him in whatever way you want.” The elder’s voice was very calm. There was even a sense of benevolence amidst that calmness. The Iron-Armed Bear’s sixth soul skill was helpless against this elder, who didn’t even unleash his martial soul.
Tang Ya was both emotionally and mentally unstable now. She didn’t even bother to think who that elder was. She was only focused on Tie Li, who was still alive, but could only limp on the ground.
Her arch-enemy was in front of her, and she could have her revenge now. Her body started to tremble in excitement.
She lifted her hand and her delicate fingers pointed at Tie Li, “Tie Li, did you expect yourself to be in such a predicament after killing my parents and destroying the Tang Sect? I shall use you as a sacrifice to my parents’ souls today.”
As she spoke, Tang Ya’s hands moved repeatedly, and several streaks of golden light penetrated Tie Li’s body. Tie Li’s facial expression suddenly distorted, and he was no longer able to move his body. It’s as if his entire body had cramped up all at once.
Tang Ya was stunned. She lifted her head to look at the elder, “You sealed his voice.”
The elder smiled, “Do you want to listen to him?”
Tang Ya nodded forcefully and gritted her teeth. “Yes!”
“Okay.” The elder lifted his hand and pressed against Tie Li. Tie Li’s screams could suddenly be heard. His loud and pathetic voice even shocked the elder that had sealed his voice a little. Perhaps half of Heaven Dou City could hear his screams.
Tie Li’s body started to change. A contusion the size of a fist started to protrude from his body. He had turned into a freak in just a few seconds.
Tang Ya used the Dragon Beard Needle once again. The Dragon Beard Needle wasn’t the most dominant secret weapon in the Tang Sect, but it brought the greatest pain to an enemy.
The thin, golden needle could normally shrink into a small grain, but when needed, it would turn into a long needle and pierce through the enemy’s flesh. After it pierced through the flesh, it could shrink once again. The contusion was formed in this manner.
Xu Sanshi couldn’t take it when he was pierced by 1 needle previously. Tie Li was pierced by more than 10 needles now, and experienced unbearable pain. It was as if his muscles and nerves had been glued together. Tie Li could only use his soul emperor cultivation to scream now. No wonder it was so loud.
The elder furrowed his brows and said, “Young lady, you need to be faster. Otherwise, the Heaven Dou Empire’s royal family will send someone here.”
Tang Ya nodded and unleashed many varities of Tang Sect secret weapons. She didn’t use them to attack Tie Li’s sensitive areas. She started with his limbs before extending them to his body.
“Dad, mom, I’ve taken revenge for the both of you!” Tang Ya bellowed into the sky. A crossbow bolt shot into Tie Li’s head and ended his screams.
At this point, waves of powerful aura could be sensed. The elder creased his brows and dashed in front of Tang Ya, “We have to go.”
“No, I won’t go. This is where the Tang Sect is. Why must I go? I only killed the perpetrators who destroyed the Tang Sect. This is my home!”
The elder raised his brows. He lifted his palm to hack at Tang Ya. Before Tang Ya’s Bluesilver Grass could even react, her entire body turned numb, and she went limp. The elder lifted her, and a black fog engulfed his entire body. He disappeared into the air instantly.
Huo Yuhao regained his energy after one day of rest. With the Life Gold’s nourishment, his body’s regenerative abilities were much greater than that of most soul masters of the same level. Although Xiao Xiao had endured less pain than him, she was still a little fatigued.
“Xiao Xiao, how’s your recovery?” Huo Yuhao asked Xiao Xiao, who had just awakened from her cultivation.
Xiao Xiao replied, “I’m almost fully recovered. The Darkgolden Terrorclaw Bear is very nourishing. Besides some soreness in my right arm, my soul power and strength have been fully restored.”
The sun had already risen in the east at this point. Huo Yuhao and Wang Dong had just finished cultivating the Purple Demon Eyes, while Elder Xuan had disappeared to parts unknown.
Wang Dong asked, “So we’ll be entering the forest again today?”
Xiao Xiao jumped up and looked at the Star Dou Forest. She said, “I’m fine with it. I’m already a soul elder now. Haha. Monitor, I’m a level above you.”
They were resting 50 miles from Star Dou Forest. No soul beasts would come here under normal conditions. Elder Xuan disappeared after bringing them here.
Huo Yuhao said, “Xiao Xiao, let us see your newly-obtained thousand year soul skill. It’ll also strengthen our cooperation in Star Dou Forest.”
Although they had only been hunting soul beasts in Star Dou Forest for one day, the experience had been quite dangerous. The most perilous part wasn’t when they met the thousand year Darkgolden Terrorclaw Bear, but when they encountered the ten thousand year Deviltiger Cat. They would have perished under the Deviltiger Cat’s sudden attack if not for Elder Xuan’s protection and their enhanced powers.
After the close shave that day, their excitement and playful mindsets had ceased to exist. They were only left with vigilance.
“Alright, I shall let you see,” Xiao Xiao said forthrightly.
As a black light flashed, the Threelives Soulcrush Cauldron had already appeared in front of her. Three soul rings—two yellow and one purple—also rose from beneath her feet.
It was a different feeling to obtain another soul ring. The elegant purple thousand year soul ring was indeed more beautiful than the yellow hundred year soul rings.
Xiao Xiao shouted, and the Threelives Soulcrush Cauldron rose into the air. “Watch carefully.”
As she spoke, the purple thousand year soul ring had already lit up.
“Nom-!” A weird sound came from the Threelives Soulcrush Cauldron. It was as if the cauldron was jerking tremendously. The size of the cauldron started to increase greatly following that.
The cauldron, which initially had a diameter of around 1 meter, increased in size to about 3 meters in diameter. The cauldron also turned dark gold like the thousand year Darkgolden Terrorclaw Bear’s fur. The cauldron was much stronger than before as the dark golden light flashed.
“Monitor, be careful.” Xiao Xiao shouted before the huge Threelives Soulcrush Cauldron started to burst towards Huo Yuhao.
Huo Yuhao had already sensed a gust of ominous wind blowing towards him when the cauldron was tens of meters away from him. The cauldron had to be over a thousand kilograms in weight. But Huo Yuhao didn’t retreat. Instead, he lifted his hands and unleashed the Ice Empress’ Pincer. He slammed it into the Threelives Soulcrush Cauldron.
“Clang!” The Threelives Soulcrush Cauldron fell, while Huo Yuhao was sent flying by the collision. Even the chill released by the Ice Empress Pincer was dissipated by the dark golden light. The Threelives Soulcrush Cauldron sank slightly into the ground. It had the aura of a national treasure at this moment.
“It’s really tough.” Huo Yuhao complimented. He was forced back by the Threelives Soulcrush Cauldron even though he had unleashed the Ice Empress Pincer. This showed how powerful the cauldron was.
The Threelives Soulcrush Cauldron carried a sense of nobility. The dark gold radiance seemed to have come alive, and revolved around the cauldron.
Xiao Xiao was delighted as she said, “My third soul ring has brought me a thousand year soul skill ‘the Cauldron’s Might’ that has changed my Threelives Soulcrush Cauldron completely. It’s as if the Darkgolden Terrorclaw Bear has possessed it. Its defensive strength has increased by at least 3 times. In addition, unleashing the Cauldron’s Might before using the two other soul skills makes me much stronger. My Threelives Soulcrush Cauldron has experienced a holistic increase in strength with this soul skill. It’s not so easy to crush it anymore. Watch this Cauldron Quake.”
Xiao Xiao shouted once again as she spoke. As a thunder-like boom rang out, a dark golden halo extended to a radius of 3 about meters with the cauldron as the center. The earth under the halo collapsed and caused the cauldron to sink a meter into the ground. The powerful shockwave even caused a little distortion in the air.
Huo Yuhao and Wang Dong could still feel the tremors even though they were not standing within the radius of the halo. Xiao Xiao’s Threelives Soulcrush Cauldron had become much more powerful with her third soul skill, the Cauldron’s Might.Previous Chapter Next Chapter
