Chapter 269 Impeccable Timing!
Chapter 269 Impeccable Timing!
Ye Zhen did not plan to clash head-on with the strong blood armored tiger.
He immediately gripped his silver spear with both of his hands and used the sweeping move to the blood armored tiger's torso.
'So heavy! But I can do it!' Ye Zhen gnashed his teeth.
Both of his wrists felt really painful and both of his arms started to tremble a bit, but he still grasped his silver spear tightly in his hands.
Ye Zhen's sweeping attack made the blood armored tiger's heavy body shifted a bit and its lethal attack completely missed its target.
Ye Zhen's silver spear has a longer reach than the blood armored tiger's claws after all, so Ye Zhen's attack would surely hit the blood armored tiger body's first.
The blood armored tiger's heavy claws missed Ye Zhen by a few inches and smashed the floor beside him, leaving really deep and long cracks on it.
Ye Zhen gasped in surprise and thought: 'If that attack hit me, I will surely crush me into meat paste in one attack! I must be more careful from now on and keep the proper distance with this tiger.'
The blood armored tiger roared angrily and dashed to Ye Zhen once again.
Ye Zhen thrust his silver spear toward the blood armored tiger rapidly. Ye Zhen's rapid attacks rained upon the blood armored tiger's body and continuously made harsh clanking sounds as if striking metal with metal.
The blood armored tiger did not even budge and kept sprinting toward Ye Zhen to crash its spiked armored body with Ye Zhen's body.
Ye Zhen instantly knew what the blood armored tiger planned to do. He immediately used his silver spear as a pole and planted it on the ground then propelled himself up.
The blood armored tiger failed to crash onto Ye Zhen and started to look around to find where he was right now.
While Ye Zhen currently somersaulted a few times in the mid-air and used all of his strength to kick the roof of that hall to propelled himself back down toward the blood armored tiger.
Ye Zhen used his current momentum plus his body weight, and he even focused all of his Qi onto the tip of his silver spear to impale the blood armored tiger's head!
'Die!!!' Ye Zhen yelled in his mind while gritted his teeth and gripped his silver spear tighter in his grasp.
Ye Zhen's sharp silver spear imbued with all of his remaining Qi pierced the blood armored tiger's back head and penetrated to below its jaw, then pinned it onto the floor!
The blood armored tiger could not die since it was not a real living being. It was only a creature made from a combination of the skull masked man's martial soul and blood martial art after all.
The blood armored tiger tried to struggle to release itself, but it was futile. Ye Zhen's silver spear pinned its head tightly on the floor, and even his silver spear's tip embedded really deep in the floor.
Ye Zhen already did what he could and fulfilled Tang Li Xue's request, but he completely spent all of his stamina and Qi in return.
Ye Zhen was panting heavily, and his sweat drenched his face and body. He could barely stand up right now.
He would not be able to escape or retreat safely from here if the plan of Tang Li Xue's perfect copy really failed later. He would surely die with her here.
But Ye Zhen still fully believed in Tang Li Xue that she would surely succeed.
Ye Zhen watched the battle of Tang Li Xue's perfect copy and the skull masked man intently from afar, but the battle between them was almost over too.
One minute ago...
The body of Tang Li Xue's perfect copy was on the verge of collapse and her internal injuries got worse as time went on, but she still did not hesitate to activate her [Moonlight Flickering Flash Step] along with her [Blood Ignition] - Quadruple Amplification.
She was only Tang Li Xue's perfect copy. So she did not have the real Tang Li Xue's OP bloodlines or Flame of Pride to counter the corrosive blood Qi which destroying her body from inside.
This was her last struggle for winning!
"Die, Little Brat!" The skull masked man yelled at the top of his lungs while slashed his black saber toward Tang Li Xue's perfect copy.
The Blood Qi coated on his black saber was many times thicker than the one he used on his palm to attack Tang Li Xue's perfect copy previously.
There was no doubt that Tang Li Xue's perfect copy would turn into bloody pulp if this attack hit her!
The Blood Qi Slash was very quick as it flashed toward Tang Li Xue in an instant, but Tang Li Xue's perfect copy immediately got down.
The Blood Qi Slash only managed to sever a few strands of the perfect copy's silky silver hair.
However, Tang Li Xue's perfect copy did not only stop at dodging that Blood Qi Slash!
She used her speed momentum and used sliding tackle toward the skull masked man!
"What?!" The skull masked man said in surprise and staggered a bit when the perfect copy's feet hit his feet.
'Oi, the timing is really perfect now! Be sure to not miss it!' Tang Li Xue's perfect copy shouted to the real Tang Li Xue through their mental connection.
The real Tang Li Xue, who was currently facing the nine-headed dark crimson snake in her fox form, suddenly activated her [Transfiguration: Human Form], and she turned back into her human form.
The nine-headed dark crimson snake did not know why Tang Li Xue did that, but it definitely knew that Tang Li Xue was far weaker in her human form after battling with her for more than ten minutes, and it would never miss this chance!
Nine humongous snakeheads opened their giant mouth at the same time and pounced toward Tang Li Xue as if they could not wait to eat her anymore.
'[Swap]!' Tang Li Xue used her skill and traded place with her perfect copy at the most crucial moment!
[Swap]: The user exchanged the position with the copy.
One of the nine humongous snakeheads finally managed to eat Tang Li Xue, and it savored the taste of her tender meat in its mouth.
However, the nine-headed dark crimson snake immediately felt something was not right!
The nine-headed dark crimson snake hissed angrily toward the sky!
It immediately realized that it actually got cheated by Tang Li Xue!
It felt as if it was eating a dumpling while looking forward to the meat stuffed inside it, but the dumpling was actually empty without anything stuffed inside it.
The nine-headed dark crimson snake sniffed its surrounding for a while. After it finally found the trace of Flame of Pride in Tang Li Xue, it immediately headed toward the direction of the mansion with full speed.
This was the main reason why Tang Li Xue did not swap position with her perfect copy earlier, and why she must wait for the right timing to swap position with her perfect copy.
If the real Tang Li Xue swapped her position with her perfect copy too early, the nine-headed dark crimson snake would definitely realize it since it could sense the Flame of Pride in Tang Li Xue's body.
Then if the nine-headed dark crimson snake chased after Tang Li Xue and came too early to the mansion before Tang Li Xue could defeat that skull masked man and demon masked woman, they would definitely join hand to face Tang Li Xue, her perfect copy, and Ye Zhen!
It would be really over once that happened since Tang Li Xue's team would definitely lose and be obliterated by them!
The scene in front of Tang Li Xue's vision instantly changed from the huge mouth of the snakehead to the skull masked man, who was currently slashing his black saber towards Tang Li Xue that lying down on the floor in front of him.
[Eclipse of Desire]!
Tang Li Xue used her newest power to the skull masked man without any hesitation!
The reason why Tang Li Xue's perfect copy did not use this [Eclipse of Desire] before was because she could not use it, just like she could not use the divine abilities from her [Pure Sun Dragon] bloodline such as [Sun Dragon Claw], [Sun Dragon Fangs], and [Sun Dragon Fiery Eyes].
Only the real Tang Li Xue could use all of those.
The mysterious eye between Tang Li Xue's eyebrows was opened in one moment.
In that instant, the skull masked man saw all the scenes in front of his eyes was faded away and replaced by an ethereal eclipse.
The skull masked man closed his eyes, and when he opened his eyes again, the black saber in his grasp already cut Tang Li Xue in two.
"Tsk! Like a fly flying into the fire! What a fool!" The skull masked man sneered at Tang Li Xue's stupidity.
The skull masked man's blood armored tiger also managed to break away from Ye Zhen's silver spear in a few seconds and killed Ye Zhen in one swipe of its claw.
The terrifying pressure descended onto the hall where they were in, and a dazzling crimson light shone throughout the entire Quanhai City!
"We did it! We finally succeeded in recovering our sect's divine treasure!" The demon masked woman yelled in joy and happiness while shielded her vision from the blinding crimson light.
"What?! How could it be?! How could the blood of these weak citizens of a small city like this Quanhai City be enough to restore our sect's divine treasure?!" The skull masked man exclaimed in disbelief.
"It seems the two people you killed before had some kind of precious treasure in their body. After they die, the energy from their precious treasure was sucked by our sect's divine treasure and made it recovered in an instant! This is really a great blessing for us! Our sect's patriarch would surely richly reward us!" The demon masked woman excitedly said to the skull masked man.
It was really hard to believe, but the terrifying pressure and aura that came from the fragment of divine treasure could not be faked!
When the blinding crimson light subsided bit by bit, the demon masked woman and the skull masked man could finally see the true form of their Devil Blood Sect's divine treasure!
It was actually an exquisite crimson mirror!
The frame color was black and carved full of tiny abstruse runes, while the mirror at the center of the frame was red like blood.
The exquisite crimson mirror slowly flew and approached the skull masked man.
The skull masked man felt puzzled and raised his vigilance. He was afraid that the exquisite crimson mirror would suck his blood dry, just like what happened to all the citizens of Quanhai City.
The exquisite crimson mirror shone once again, and this time, it showed the reflection of the skull masked man wearing the luxurious garment for the Blood Devil sect's patriarch.
"This… This is me? Are… Are you saying this is my future?!" The skull masked man trembled while murmured in disbelief.
The skull masked man stretched his hand, tried to touch the reflection of himself in the mirror with an intoxicated expression.
When he touched his own reflection in the mirror, the exquisite crimson mirror turned into a flash of red light and entered his palm.
The cultivation of the skull masked man started to increase significantly without any sign of stopping…
High-Rank Foundation Establishment Stage!
Peak-Rank Foundation Establishment Stage!
Instantly breakthrough to Low-Rank/Early Core Formation Stage!
Mid-Rank Core Formation Stage!
High-Rank Core Formation Stage!
Peak-Rank Core Formation Stage!
Instantly breakthrough to Low-Rank/Early Nascent Soul Stage!
The skull masked man's cultivation finally stopped increasing after it reached the Peak of Nascent Soul Stage!
"Hehehe… BWAHAHAHAHAHA~!!!" The skull masked man maniacally laughed as his body was bathed by the crimson light from the exquisite crimson mirror in his right palm.
