Volume 31, Chapter 393.2: Rage of the Evil Emperor

That red pillar was more than a hundred meters in diameter, and even people outside the Evildemon Forest could see it clearly.

The pillar surged several thousand meters into the sky, and the clouds swiftly gathered towards it.

The enormous pillar broke through the clouds and tainted everything around it a blood-red color. The clouds gradually dispersed, revealing a colossal blood-red eye.

This blood-red eye hung thousands of meters in the sky as it looked down on the Evildemon Forest, and the forceful voice from before rang out once more.

“Child, my child, where are you?!”

This exclamation contained exceptionally strange and sinister spiritual undulations. These undulations descended onto the forest from thousands of meters up in the sky and expanded outward, with the Evildemon Forest’s core region as the epicenter. The spiritual undulations covered an ever-larger area of effect, almost two-thirds of the entire Evildemon Forest.

Huo Yuhao was running away with incredible speed, but he was still far from escaping its area of effect!

When those strange spiritual undulations landed on his body, he felt the soul ring storage tool hidden on his body warm up.

Shit!

Huo Yuhao immediately understood that he was in trouble.

The Evileye Tyrant King couldn’t instantly find the location where his son had died, but he was using this exclamation charged with spiritual undulations to find the hundred-thousand-year Evileye Tyrant’s spiritual undulations!

Huo Yuhao had purified that Evileye Tyrant’s spirit, but the soul ring that it had left behind still contained some of its spiritual undulations!

Huo Yuhao almost didn’t have any time to plan or to think of anything as the Eye of Destiny between his eyebrows lit up. The wheel of light behind his head that had formed when he faced off against the hundred-thousand-year Evileye Tyrant glimmered once more.

In the next moment…

The colossal blood-red eye in the sky seemed to refract as a blood-red pillar a hundred meters across refracted downwards from several thousand meters in the sky.

Things like the Sunmoon Divine Needle were just a small toy compared to this horrifying red pillar of light!

Boom, boom, boom!

Somewhere in the Evildemon Forest, or rather at Huo Yuhao’s location, a humongous mushroom cloud surged into the sky.

Anybody looking down from the sky could see that a region of the spacious Evildemon Forest had been washed entirely blood-red. Afterwards, the lush green in that region melted away just like that…

This region was at least a thousand meters in diameter, and not a single inch of vegetation remained.

The red colors in the sky gradually faded away, and the blood-red light receded and fell back into the Evildemon Forest’s core regions. A dense and grievous will traveled out from that place as powerful emotional ripples blanketed the entire forest, and countless soul beasts cried out and teared up as a result.

The area that was just bombarded by that terrifying red light began to lose all those red hues, and not a single soul beast would dare to enter that region for a month.

The forest wasn’t the only thing obliterated by that horrifying spiritual power. The earth had sunk down by several dozen meters, as if the very stones and soil had been stripped of life.

---

However, in the middle of this region that was temporarily considered forbidden ground…

“Cough, cough, cough!” A wave of intense coughing sounds could be heard.

A battered and wretched figure slowly stood up. His entire body was covered with a layer of dirt, and his appearance was completely obscured, while his clothes were conspicuously torn and tattered... but he was alive!

He sighed at his own luck.

“I’m still alive?” Huo Yuhao’s face twitched as intense dizziness struck his head. He had formidable spiritual power, but he currently felt as if his entire spiritual sea had been sucked dry. His body was soft and weak, and he struggled to even continue standing up straight. His entire body was in a bad state.

Yes, he was still alive; still alive after taking a hit from the Evil Emperor, who had eight hundred thousand years of cultivation!

How unimaginable was this? The Evil Emperor, who had just unleashed that attack, had no reason to expect that this human was still alive. When he had discovered Huo Yuhao with his Spiritual Detection, he could already tell how strong he was. From the Evil Emperor’s perspective, this attack was enough to obliterate Huo Yuhao from the face of the earth!

The Evil Emperor’s arrogance meant he couldn’t be bothered to check the aftermath. Furthermore, he was in the most crucial time of his closed-door cultivation, so he didn’t have the time and energy to investigate.

The Skydream Iceworm’s hopeful words from back then clearly didn’t come true. The Evil Emperor wasn’t far from the limit, but he wasn’t there, after all, and he was still alive. He was the Continent’s second strongest savage beast as long as he was still alive, and one of the most frightening existences on the Continent.

It feels great to be alive! Huo Yuhao heaved a sigh inside. “You’ve saved me yet again, Qiu’er.”

The reason why he was still alive naturally wasn’t because he had enough strength to withstand that all-out attack from the Evileye Tyrant King. How could the Evil Emperor’s spiritual sweep have any judgmental errors?

The reason why he was alive was because of the skull bone that he had obtained from Wang Qiu’er, the Auspicious Beast’s skull bone.

The Auspicious Beast’s skull bone possessed a special ability besides bestowing two powerful soul skills upon Huo Yuhao. This ability was called Spiritual Immunity!

Huo Yuhao could make himself immune to all kinds and levels of spiritual attacks three times a day. Unless Huo Yuhao was faced with a God who had the ability to change destiny, Huo Yuhao could render himself immune to all sorts and levels of spiritual attacks.

Huo Yuhao had relied on this ability, which was basically against natural law in the spiritual realm, to challenge the hundred-thousand-year Evileye Tyrant. He had used this ability to gain the advantage against his adversary in a perilous battle, and had eventually managed to kill it.

Huo Yuhao could use Spiritual Immunity three times when he was in peak condition. After using this ability once, he would have to replenish his skull bone with spiritual power through his own cultivation. Of course, he could use another method to replenish his skull bone – he could consume other skull bones, just like how he had consumed the hundred-thousand-year Evileye Tyrant’s skull bone!

Huo Yuhao would need at least a month to fully replenish his skull bone to three instances of Spiritual Immunity if he didn’t consume any skull bones.

Spiritual Immunity didn’t seem like much when one considered that one month was a very long time. But in reality, this ability was very useful to Huo Yuhao. Huo Yuhao had had to use Spiritual Immunity to defend himself against a spiritual-type attack at his level of spiritual power, so just how powerful did that attack have to be?

Everything that had just happened proved this point. No matter how powerful the Evil Emperor was, Spiritual Immunity had still protected Huo Yuhao from its attack.

However, Huo Yuhao also had sufficient experience through this attack that not everything was absolute. The Evil Emperor’s attack didn’t kill him, but his spiritual sea was immediately sucked dry in that instant, and even his skull bone was sucked dry.

Huo Yuhao felt very fortunate that his Auspicious Beast Skull Bone had consumed the Evileye Tyrant’s skull bone before this. The spiritual power from consuming that skull bone was currently replenishing him slowly. Otherwise, he would have fainted, and he had no idea how long it would have taken him to wake up if that happened.

I have to leave this place as quickly as possible! I must! Otherwise, if the Evil Emperor dusts its hands and comes down to take a look, I’m dead!

Huo Yuhao would have trouble fighting even a single thousand-year soul beast in his current state, let alone the strongest individual among all the Evileye Tyrants!

Huo Yuhao bit down on the tip of his tongue, and intense pain reinvigorated his spirit and pumped adrenaline into his system. He quickly checked his soul ring storage tool. 

That thing was worthy of being a Class 8 soul tool, and wasn’t destroyed while under the protection of Huo Yuhao’s Spiritual Immunity. The hundred-thousand-year soul ring that was contained inside was also intact. At least he didn’t take that attack for nothing!

Huo Yuhao retrieved a small bracelet from his storage ring and put it on his wrist. Afterwards, he began to activate this bracelet with his soul power.

He had consumed too much spiritual power, but his soul power’s situation was relatively good. The silver bracelet swiftly shone with a layer of gentle silver light as Huo Yuhao infused soul power into it, and this silver light wrapped backwards and stretched up along his wrist. The silver light quickly formed a silver bracer cocooning his left arm.

Rows of silver light shone from his bracer, and ray after ray of silver light flickered as metal pieces covered by that silver light hovered in front of Huo Yuhao.

Huo Yuhao took a deep breath and released his soul power to produce vigorous kinetic forces, and attached those rays of silver light to his body. The silver lights rapidly covered his body, and it didn’t take long before his entire body was covered by a human-shaped soul tool.

This human-shaped soul tool was a lot prettier and more elegant than the one that he had crafted in the tournament not too long ago. This set was streamlined all over, and very simplistic and generous. A pair of wings arched behind his back, and quickly became three layers of golden wings as he infused soul power into them. Every layer of golden wings had six blasting holes, the higher wings narrower than the ones below.

Every other part was matched to Huo Yuhao’s frame, every component intricately and finely assembled. Huo Yuhao only looked a little bigger after donning this suit, and there were no redundancies at all.

This was the human-shaped soul tool that Xuan Ziwen had personally crafted for Huo Yuhao. Xuan Ziwen had considered that Huo Yuhao was still a Soul King back then, and so had done all he could with this soul tool to ensure that it could maintain its strength as a Class 7 soul tool, and that Huo Yuhao could still use it as a Soul King.

Huo Yuhao didn’t have time to wear this suit when he faced off against the Holy Ghost Church’s powerful individuals because everything had happened too suddenly. So this was the first time he had used it. In truth, there wasn’t any practical use to wearing this suit against those evil Titled Douluo.

However, his situation was very different at the moment. With this soul tool, he could use the twelve miniature compressed Sealed Milk Bottles attached to it to sustain himself for another round of high-intensity combat. With this suit, Huo Yuhao would have no problems protecting his life even if he encountered another hundred-thousand-year soul beast. At the same time, he could use this suit to get out of the forest as quickly as possible!

Huo Yuhao didn’t fly into the sky, because he was still inside the Evildemon Forest. He activated the soul thrusters on his back and propelled himself forward at breakneck speed. His goal now was to leave the Evildemon Forest as quickly as possible, and then find somewhere safe so that he could absorb his seventh soul ring, the one from that one hundred-thousand-year Evileye Tyrant, and become a Soul Sage!
