Up against two dreadfully powerful attacks, Bai Yunfei froze momentarily to do several hand seals. The elemental fire around him gathered to his hands before exploding outwards!
Two fiery dragons exploded out from Bai Yunfei’s arms and into the heavens! Ten meters long in diameter, the two dragons had sparks of lightning run through them and tiny spots of gray in several places. It was an awe-inspiring sight to see.
The Chaotic Dual Dragon Burst!
Like the two Soul Emperors he was up against, Bai Yunfei was starting with the strongest move of his own!
The first to collide with the Chaotic Dual Dragon Burst was the Extinguishing Seal. Nether’s move was filled with the Law of Darkness, but Bai Yunfei’s attack was powered by the Law of Fire and Chaotic Energy. Compared to one another, it was simple to see…the giant dark palm be crushed and the Chaotic Dual Dragon Burst continue onwards to Nether!!
This current avatar of Nether only formed a year ago. Formed with the experience of before, this avatar was still quite weak. It was still only an Early-stage Soul Emperor but was weaker than both its previous avatar and Duan Leiting’s avatar.
If Duan Leiting’s attack—powered by his own understandings into the Law of Lightning—lost to Bai Yunfei’s Chaotic Dual Dragon Burst, then there was no way Nether’s attack would be a match for it.
But Nether took the defeat of his attack in stride. A black curtain appeared in front of him and blocked the Chaotic Dual Dragon Burst from slamming into him.
“He’s grown stronger since three years ago!” It was to be expected that Bai Yunfei would be stronger than before, but Nether was still finding it hard to believe. He knew just how powerful Bai Yunfei’s attack could be and how they could utterly transcend common sense, but still! The rate in which Bai Yunfei was improving was mind-boggling and Nether couldn’t help but feel terrified by him!
All the same, Nether was utterly determined to kill Bai Yunfei once in for all!
Bai Yunfei might’ve had the upper hand in his exchange with Nether, but there was still another person to worry about. The Extinguishing Seal was gone, but not Lin Xiangtian's attack!
While the fallout from the Extinguishing Seal and the Chaotic Dual Dragon Burst was settling, the golden streaks of light flew straight for Bai Yunfei’s head!
They traveled for quite some time before suddenly colliding together with one another to form a giant golden ball of light. Doubling in both speed and power, the newly formed ball of light shot at Bai Yunfei like a bullet!
Bai Yunfei was still recovering from his usage of the Chaotic Dual Dragon Burst when the bullet was moments away from impact. There was no way he’d be able to dodge or defend against it!
A whorl of black light materialized in front of Bai Yunfei. Transforming into a whirlpool, the light swallowed up the ball of light and prevented it from hitting Bai Yunfei! The ball of light had simply fallen into the whirlpool and disappeared like a pebble falling into a pool of water!
+10 Additional effect of Bai Yunfei’s armor, activated!
|In Exchange for soulforce, create a devouring whirlpool of darkness that negates any elemental attack directed towards the user.|
Cooldown of 10 minutes.
Bai Yunfei’s eyes glimmered with the light of satisfaction upon seeing Lin Xiangtian's attack negated. Focusing on Nether, he summoned his soulforce to his hand and pointed his finger at him!
A single word came forth from his mouth to assault Nether with both sound and ability!
Nether grew tense straight away. Gathering his wits to him, the avatar focused his soulforce in making an impenetrable barrier around him.
“Bzzz…” There was a faint hum in the air when Bai Yunfei’s soul skill met resistance from Nether’s defenses. The black light around Nether shimmered slightly, and just the smallest of grunts could be heard from the avatar.
The Soul Anchor Technique was a supreme technique that could inflict damage on even those stronger than its caster. Bai Yunfei wasn’t even a genuine Soul Emperor and yet, when combined with the Soul Sentinel Scarf, he could use the Soul Anchor Technique to do harm onto Nether. But even with that said, the difference in strength was still large enough that Nether wasn’t considerably affected by the technique.
Then came another shock to Nether’s system—the same word was being said!
The Soul Anchor Technique, again!
Then came another two! What in the world was Bai Yunfei doing?
It was like there was no one else here in the world but Bai Yunfei and Nether. Bai Yunfei was unrelenting and kept using one Soul Anchor Technique after another!
In the end, five of them were used on Nether!
Nether was speechless, what kind of tactic was this? To attack him with the same technique over and over again like this…how much hatred did Bai Yunfei have for him!?
Well, then again. It was easy to tell that both parties held an enormous amount of hatred for one another.
Still…what kind of ‘suicidal’ tactic was this!! If by chance Bai Yunfei was able to even hurt Nether…what about Lin Xiangtian? Bai Yunfei was completely ignoring Lin Xiangtian! This was definitely an ignorant tactic that would only lead to Bai Yunfei’s death, would it not?!
But Nether didn’t have the time to think about it. He had to deal with the multiple Soul Anchor Techniques that was about to hit him!
He wasn’t able to block these Soul Anchor Techniques this time. A stab of pain shot straight through his body. The black light around his figure decreased by a substantial amount, revealing his avatar distorting in several places and even being slightly more transparent!
Right as Nether’s mind was put into disarray, a golden streak of light flew out from Bai Yunfei towards Nether!
There was a loud, but melodic, gong as a giant golden bell fell on top of Nether!
The King Caging Bell!!
Bai Yunfei’s eyes were a little bloodshot and veins all over his body were bulging outwards. Using the Anchor Technique five times in a row was extremely taxing on his mind. He still had the power to fight, though. Before the last Soul Anchor Technique was used, Bai Yunfei managed to throw the King Caging Bell at Nether.
And so in just several moments since the fight began, Bai Yunfei was able to trap a Soul Emperor!
It wouldn’t be long before Nether would break free from his confines. The King Caging Bell would hold him for several seconds at the very most. If Bai Yunfei had used the Soul Sealing Mandate then Nether surely would’ve been defeated.
But…there was no way Bai Yunfei would be able to use it!
He wasn’t up against just one enemy…but two!
Had Bai Yunfei thrown the Soul Sealing Mandate, Lin Xiangtian would’ve stepped back to cover for Nether, but since he didn’t, Lin Xiangtian dove straight at Bai Yunfei to attack!
And since Lin Xiangtian was practically ignored by Bai Yunfei when he was attacking Nether, it took only seconds for Lin Xiangtian to be within striking distance of him!
As Nether initially thought; the act of wholly focusing on one opponent and disregarding the other was a simply foolish and suicidal tactic!
Lin Xiangtian's eyes gleamed with the thrill of possibly being able to kill Bai Yunfei. All five of his fingers shined with a brilliant edge as they swished down to strike upon Bai Yunfei’s head!Previous Chapter Next Chapter
