Chapter 272 Blood of Lust! Assimilate!
Tang Li Xue's lithe body reflexively used the [Moonlight Flickering Flash Step] to dodge all of the blood cannonballs.
After entering [Divine Possession Mode] with Yaya, Tang Li Xue's movement was completely different from before.
[Extreme Speed] already increased the effect of Tang Li Xue's agility by 4 times, and her maximum speed by 5 times.
Moreover, she also has [Breezing Step] and [Fast Flight] activated at the same time, increased her current speed by several more times.
While the [Wind God's Eyes] capable to see through any kind of movement no matter how fast it was, and it could even predict the next few moves of her opponents.
If Tang Li Xue in perfect assimilation with Phoenix of Pride could be described as the strongest cannon: explosive, powerful, and destructive. Then Tang Li Xue in her [Divine Possession Mode] with Yaya could be described as the fastest assassin: swift, efficient, and deadly.
Moreover, Tang Li Xue's [Extrasensory Perception] could sense everything in her surrounding very clearly. She could even activate her [Ethereal Form] again to dodge all of the physical attacks easily.
In short, it was almost impossible to touch the current Tang Li Xue in her [Divine Possession Mode] with all of her skills and divine abilities activated.
Only something like a large AOE (Area of Effect) attack could probably hit her.
Tang Li Xue's slender figure flickered several times, leaving several afterimages wherever she went. Not even one of those many blood cannonballs could even touch the corner of her sleeve.
Tang Li Xue really wanted to teach this nine-headed humongous dark crimson snake a very harsh lesson right now, but she did not have much stamina and time left to do that, so she decided to just grab the two disciples as soon as possible.
The two disciples had already been hit by a few stray blood cannonballs.
Thankfully, all of those blood cannonballs were not lethal at all, since the nine-headed dark crimson snake did not want to kill Tang Li Xue but want to eat her and the Phoenix of Pride in her Dantian.
The function of those super sticky blood cannonballs was to stop Tang Li Xue from moving around, so the dark crimson snake could eat her easily.
The two disciples were currently stuck on the middle street, and they could no longer move just like a pair of flies trapped in the spider's web.
Tang Li Xue did not want to waste any more of her time to release them carefully from that sticky blood, so she immediately used the [Compressed Wind Blade] to cut a small part of the street below the two disciples and shoved them all into her medium-rank space pouch.
But right at this moment, her [Extrasensory Perception] sensed two people were flying really fast toward her direction.
'Oh, no! They are coming here already?!' Tang Li Xue exclaimed nervously as she stared at the sky while frowned deeply.
Tang Li Xue activated her [Ethereal Form], and her slender figure immediately turned invisible again.
Several blood cannonballs still flew towards her, but all of them could not touch her and only passed through her transparent body.
"Old man, why are you running away right now? Let's play together for a little bit longer!" The silver masked young man laughed playfully and threw another fist attack in the old man's direction.
His black Qi condensed into a black gauntlet and shot toward the black-masked old man.
The black-masked old man created a blood shield in time with his Blood Qi to defend against the silver masked young man's attack, but it shattered as soon as the destructive attack crashed onto it.
The black-masked old man was thrown off several meters from his flying sword and plunged from the sky!
"Blood of Lust! Come! Assimilate with me now!" The black-masked old man shouted to the nine-headed humongous dark crimson snake below him.
The nine-headed humongous dark crimson snake turned back into its liquid form. A large amount of blood made it looks like the river of blood, and it was surging toward the sky!
Tang Li Xue felt baffled by the sudden change in front of her eyes, but her sense did not feel relieved at all.
On the contrary, she felt in even greater danger right now.
'I must escape now!' Tang Li Xue decided at that moment.
Tang Li Xue flapped her crystal-like fairy wings, and her invisible figure flew swiftly toward Quanhai City's outskirt.
Meanwhile, the river of blood condensed into a drop of dark blood and entered back into the black-masked old man's body after pierced the skin in his palm.
"Assimilate!" The black-masked old man yelled as his wrinkled old skin tightened.
The black-masked old man looked as if he went back to his twenty years old now. His white hair and white long beard also turned black again.
Even his scary skinny bony body transformed into a strong muscular body now, and each part of his body was filled with vitality without any sign of withering at all.
But the color of his pale old skin also strangely turned into red like blood now.
The terrifying aura and pressure radiated out from the black-masked old man's muscular body. In fact, he could not be called an old man anymore from his current appearance.
Even the silver masked young man widened his eyes in surprise and was stunned in disbelief after he saw the huge transformation of the black-masked old man.
But after assimilating with the Blood of Lust, the black-masked old man also felt its unbearable thirst to devour the Flame of Pride.
The black-masked old man glanced at the direction where Tang Li Xue was heading for a moment, but he immediately shook his head.
"It is futile! Your target is moving too fast! We will not be able to catch up anymore! Now stop your whining and just follow my order!" The black-masked old man said with a tone filled with impatience.
The black-masked old man was flying without even using his flying sword anymore right now after he assimilated with the Blood of Lust.
The black-masked old man leisurely threw a palm attack towards the silver masked young man.
The thick blood Qi solidified into a large red-colored palm and reached the silver masked young man in a flash.
The silver masked young man quickly threw another powerful fist attack to counter the large blood palm.
This time, it was the silver masked young man's turn to get thrown off several meters away, but he quickly stabilized the flying sword under his feet, and he even gulped down the blood in his throat.
The expression of the silver masked young man immediately turned really solemn. He never thought that the strength of the black-masked old man could improve this much.
"Hehehe... Bwahahahaha... What is wrong, young man? Why do I feel that you are not so strong anymore now? Don't tell me this is the only extent of your strength? I will be really disappointed if that is really the truth. Come on, young man! Entertain this old man more!" The black-masked old man laughed maniacally and taunted the silver masked young man.
"Sigh... It seems I cannot afford to hold back anymore." The silver masked young man murmured softly as his obsidian black eyes turned sharper.
"Then come! Show me your best, young man!" The black-masked old man said with a tone full of confidence.
" Awake... Nine Petal Blood Lotus!" The silver masked young man said coldly.
The intense crimson light illuminated the entire corner of Quanhai City as the Nine Petal Blood Lotus dazzlingly bloomed above the silver masked young man!
Even Tang Li Xue who already flew out from Quanhai City stared back in surprise at the Nine Petal Blood Lotus from afar.
With her [Wind God's Eyes], she could even look at the Nine Petal Blood Lotus clearly from several miles away.
"That is... a flower? What kind of flower is that? Why it feels so familiar to me?" Tang Li Xue muttered in a daze.
The expression of the black-masked old man turned pale in an instant while he pointed his index finger at the silver masked young man.
"You... you are not the elder from Immortal Sword Sect! You... you are... the former patriarch of..." The expression of black-masked old man said while stuttered in disbelief and shock. But before he could finish his words, the silver masked young man already interrupted him halfway.
The Nine Petal Blood Lotus above the silver masked young man already transformed into a blood-colored sword and flew into his grasp.
"Since you already knew it, I cannot let you live anymore. Die now!" The silver masked young man said with a freezing tone filled with murderous intent.
The silver masked young man's figure flashed toward the black-masked old man, and he swiftly swung his blood-colored sword toward him.
The black-masked old man summoned out his martial soul, the [Blood Flood Dragon], and used it to block the silver masked young man's sudden sword attack.
With the boost he got from assimilating with Blood of Lust, the [Blood Flood Dragon]'s strength had been enhanced by multiple times stronger than before too.
The [Blood Flood Dragon] roared out loud toward the sky and brandished its sharp claws to counter the silver masked young man's sword attack!
But the anticipated blast and violent shockwave did not appear at all!
The silver masked young man's blood-colored sword easily cut the [Blood Flood Dragon] like a big piece of tofu.
Even the black-masked old man did not expect this kind of outcome!
The [Blood Flood Dragon] was the combination of his blood transformation art and his martial soul, so the black-masked old man's soul got injured after the silver masked young man's blood-colored sword cut the [Blood Flood Dragon]'s claws.
The silver masked young man laughed back at the black-masked old man and mocked: "My Nine Petal Blood Lotus is the nemesis of all blood! I wonder how you plan to counter against it now?!"
