Chapter 798: The Appearance of Someone Who Shouldn't

“Eh?!”

It was with surprise that the black-robed person watched as his black needle pierce through one of the Bai Yunfeis. But instead of Bai Yunfei dying, the one struck by the needle faded away into nothingness while the other two Bai Yunfeis stabbed at him with their flaming spears!

He wasn’t at a complete loss for words. Reacting swiftly to the two Bai Yunfeis coming at him, the young man brandished his longsword and blocked the spear coming at him from his right. There was a clang as his sword stopped the spear before he twisted his sword and lunged for Bai Yunfei’s throat!

A slit opened up on Bai Yunfei’s throat as the sword connected, but this time, the man watched in shock as the Bai Yunfei disappeared into smoke rather than spit out blood from his wound!

Bewildered by the strange cloning technique he was facing, the man had barely any time left to react before he had to deal with the last Bai Yunfei on the left.

“Ha!!”

The black-robed man came to an immediate halt the moment when Bai Yunfei grunted. His body locked up on him, and his eyes started to glaze over!

By using the pseudo-soul attack, Bai Yunfei was able to catch the man off guard for just long enough to stab at his chest!

The spear was only centimeters away from his chest when the man…sneered! The glazed look in his eyes disappeared in an instant as he started to smile!

“Hmph!!”

It was hardly a very loud sneer, but it thundered in Bai Yunfei’s mind like the ringing of a large bell and forced his body to lock up immediately!

The Soul Sentinel Scarf flooded his body with a warm glow a second later, ridding his body of the foreign energy. But when he blinked and saw what his opponent was doing, his eyes widened in horror!

His opponent was already a few meters away from him and his spear, but the black needle was merely inches away!

“Bang!!” Bai Yunfei slammed his foot against the ground to aid him in his escape. Leaning towards the left, Bai Yunfei was able to evade the black needle just enough before he steadied himself.

While the black needle hadn’t scraped his cheek when it passed, the black energy from it touched at it, bringing a chilling cold to Bai Yunfei’s body!

Bai Yunfei slammed his Fire-tipped Spear into the ground to brace himself up. Safe from danger for the time being, Bai Yunfei brandished his left hand forward!

In response to his actions, the Cataclysmic Seal expanded to the size of a door to stop the black needle. The two objects made contact with one another, and again, the Cataclysmic Seal proved successful in stopping the black needle!

Bai Yunfei took this opportunity to Flash Step ten meters to the right, his boots aiding his forward momentum by a substantial margin. 

Still surprised by what he experienced at the hand of his opponent, he stared at him for a moment before saying two words, “Soul attack!”

Back then when Bai Yunfei used his pseudo-soul attack to catch his opponent off guard, the young man had in turn met him dead on with a soul attack of his own!

And to make matters even worse, the man hadn’t even been affected by Bai Yunfei’s attack! He faked it! Bai Yunfei’s pseudo-soul attack had done essentially nothing to him!

A chill traveled up Bai Yunfei’s spine. “A soul attack…is a very special type of attack, this can only mean…” 

“He dodged it?! Impossible!!”

On the other side, the black-robed man was currently in an equally shocked state as Bai Yunfei. He had been so sure that Bai Yunfei wouldn’t have been able to dodge that attack of his.

“He can use a soul attack and can…snap himself out from my own soul attack. Can he be…” Likewise, the young man was currently thinking along the same lines of Bai Yunfei, though he quickly dismissed that thought right afterward. “No way! It has to be some sort of special soul armament of his!”

“Pah, it doesn’t matter how many heaven-tier soul armaments you have, you’re dying here!” He sneered at Bai Yunfei. Killing intent rose in even larger amounts from his body as his soulforce started to spike. Green, orange, red, and violet light started to rise from his person; and very faintly, a slight sliver of black smoke was rising from his person…!

At the same time, Bai Yunfei was undergoing something very similar!

Cold determination was all that was left in Bai Yunfei’s eyes as he steadied his Fire-tipped Spear. He stepped backward, but his left hand was pointing at the black-robed man to have the Cataclysmic Seal go flying towards him!

“Bzz…”

The Cataclysmic Seal was only ten meters into its path when it exploded into a burst of fire before expanding in size!

Under the wide-open eyes of the black-robed man, the Cataclysmic Seal expanded to the size of a small mountain large enough to cover a fourth of the entire pocket!

In an instant, a large area of the pocket was completely overshadowed by the mountainous object above it. The black-robed man could only stand there and gap at the brick for a moment before he realized the situation he was in and start to back away rapidly!

That was because Bai Yunfei was already standing outside the landing perimeter of the brick and commanding it to smash down!

And when Bai Yunfei pointed his hand down, the Cataclysmic Seal was sent crashing towards the ground with devastating force!

“Boom!!!”

The entire pocket trembled violently when the Cataclysmic Seal slammed into the ground. For meters all around, the earth was heavily impacted from where it landed, leaving a very shocked black-robed man barely outside its perimeter.

“What kind of soul armament is that?!”

Was all he could think about. He looked up at the gigantically red mountain in front of him, looking on in shock as elemental fire exuded from it!

The Cataclysmic Seal slowly shrunk in size, leaving behind only the crater as proof of its existence. When the crater could be fully seen from both sides, the only thing that was left was a brilliant bonfire. They flickered for a moment before turning into two flaming twisters!

“Roar!!”

From the flame twisters, two giant dragons materialized from them to twist around each other. There was a spark of violet light in between the two as they coiled together. In a spiralling motion, the two dragons released a mighty roar and flew towards the black-robed man!

This was Bai Yunfei’s strongest attack, the Dual Dragon Burst!!

If the eyes of the black-robed man weren’t wide open before, they were now. Cursing to himself, he kicked off against the ground to fly back as fast as possible!

Bai Yunfei watched as his opponent tried to escape from his attack. In response to his retreat, Bai Yunfei flashed through three hand seals and pushed his palms outwards!

In response to his action, the two dragons immediately made a swift turn to follow after the black-hooded man!

“Boom!!!”

The entire pocket revertebrated heavily with each time the dragons roared with a force equivalent to that of the Cataclysmic Seal. An ocean of fire swept across the area to engulf half the pocket in the flames of the dragon.

“Huff…huff…”

Doubled up at the waist, Bai Yunfei was trying hard to gasp for breath as he watched the ocean of fire in front of him.

“That should do the trick…”

As he was thinking to himself, the unexpected sighting of something from the corners of his eyes caused him to blink and widen his eyes in horror!

“Boom!!”

A transparent bubble of energy burst out from amidst the sea of flames. Like a hurricane, it blew apart the flames with devastating power to subdue everything within its area!

The very same moment the energy appeared, the pocket started to tremble violently. As if being jolted by a charged bolt of electricity, the pocket started to tremble and fall apart!

“What the…no way!!”

Feeling the air vibrate with energy and the pocket start to fall apart, Bai Yunfei could hardly breathe out the two words that would’ve described the situation in front of him.

“S—Soul King!!”
