Chapter 385 Perilous Aerial Pursuit!
The large [Nine Petal Blood Lotus] above Elder Yang shone brightly with the eerie crimson light that illuminated the night sky.
Then the shining [Nine Petal Blood Lotus] turned into a crimson blood sword and flew to Elder Yang's hand.
The crimson blood sword in Elder Yang's grasp started to turn even redder when it began to absorb Elder Yang's blood.
That was Elder Yang's idea to utilize his martial soul, [Nine Petal Blood Lotus], and [Blood of Lust] contained in his blood to increase his battle prowess further.
By letting his blood be absorbed by the crimson blood sword, the power of his crimson blood sword would increase by several times, and he could even control his blood to change the form of his crimson blood sword's edge.
For example like now…
There were still a few meters of distance between Elder yang with fake Crown Prince Feng and Hei Yinghao, but Elder Yang still slashed the crimson blood sword in his grasp toward them.
In that instant, the edge of Elder Yang's crimson blood sword turned flexible like a whip, and it lashed toward the fake Crown Prince Feng and Hei Yinghao.
The fake Crown Prince Feng, who kept looking behind to observe their distance with Elder Yang, immediately widened his eyes in surprise and shouted to warn Hei Yinghao: "Watch o…"
Hei Yinghao has an even higher Spirit stat than Tang Li Xue, so his [Spirit Perception] was very sharp.
Without even looking at Elder Yang or hearing the warning from fake Crown Prince Feng, he could already sense Elder Yang's crimson blood sword was lashing toward him like a sharp whip.
If the sharp whip from the edge of Elder Yang's crimson blood sword hit them, there was no doubt that they would be cut in two!
Hei Yinghao gritted his teeth as he swiftly released his Wind Riding Bird's rein and took out the traditional umbrella he got from Instructor Mei Lan in Myriad Foxes Academy before, then opened it to deflect Elder Yang's crimson blood sword.
Elder Yang's flexible crimson blood sword struck Hei Yinghao's traditional umbrella very hard like a meteor.
That heavy hit did not affect Hei Yinghao much, but the Wind Riding Bird he rode was thrown off its course because of it and started to spin uncontrollably mid-air.
"AAAAAHHHH~!!!" The fake Crown Prince Feng screamed in fear, and he quickly hugged Hei Yinghao very tightly from behind because he did not want to fall from Wind Riding Bird and got caught by Elder Yang's blood thread again, just like what happened before.
But Hei Yinghao did not even hold his Wind Riding Bird's rein right now, so the centrifugal force from the spin and fierce wind almost thrown him off from his Wind Riding Bird.
Hei Yinghao's legs clenched at the Wind Riding Bird's body tighter to stabilized himself and prevented himself from being thrown off, but the fake Crown Prince Feng suddenly hugged him very tightly from behind!
Hei Yinghao's leg could no longer support himself and the fake Crown Prince Feng anymore, so both of them were thrown off from the Wind Riding Bird's back!
Elder Yang would never let this chance go, so he swiftly slashed his crimson blood sword again toward Hei Yinghao and the fake Crown Prince Feng!
The edge of his crimson blood sword turned flexible again as it lively lashed toward Hei Yinghao and the fake Crown Prince Feng like a hungry snake.
At this crucial moment, Hei Yinghao gritted his teeth and activated his divine abilities!
[Blood Burst] active!
[Blood Ignition] – Twelve Amplification active!
Hei Yinghao activated both of his [Blood Burst] and [Blood Ignition] at his utmost limit in this instant!
He raised the traditional umbrella in his right hand's grasp to block Elder Yang's attack while he reached out his left hand to seize the rein of his Wind Riding Bird at lightning speed.
Elder Yang's crimson blood sword struck Hei Yinghao's traditional umbrella very heavily again.
Elder Yang's strike was stronger and heavier than last time too!
It had thrown Hei Yinghao and the fake Crown Prince Feng off farther from the Wind Riding Bird, just right before Hei Yinghao could grab the rein of his Wind Riding Bird!
"AAAHHHH~!!! We are falling! We are falling~!!!" The fake Crown Prince Feng screamed out loud in fright, but he kept hugging Hei Yinghao tightly from behind.
"Shut up! Release me right now and hold onto my hand tightly!" Hei Yinghao shouted to the fake Crown Prince Feng with an angry tone.
Thankfully the fake Crown Prince Feng still listened to Hei Yinghao's instruction in this critical moment and released his hug to Hei Yinghao, then hold Hei Yinghao's hand tightly.
But right at that timing, Elder Yang's third strike had already come and lashing toward the fake Crown Prince Feng and Hei Yinghao again!
Hei Yinghao did not panic as he started to inject his Vitality Energy into his black cloak.
The array hidden inside the black cloak was activated, and a pair of huge black bat-like wings was spreading open!
Hei Yinghao flew back in a flash toward his Wind Riding Bird while swiftly avoid Elder Yang's third lethal strike at the same time!
Hei Yinghao returned onto his Wind Riding Bird's back along with the fake Crown Prince Feng since the fake Crown Prince Feng kept holding his right hand tightly, so he flew back to Wind Riding Bird with Hei Yinghao.
Hei Yinghao checked his traditional umbrella for a moment and realized that there were two long gashes on his traditional umbrella's surface.
It seems his traditional umbrella could only block a few more strikes from Elder Yang before it broke completely.
Unfortunately, their previous movement was already being read by Elder Yang, and Elder Yang already made a move ahead of them.
"Checkmate." Elder Yang murmured as he rode his flying sword right below the Wind Riding Bird right now.
If he attacked the fake Crown Prince Feng and Hei Yinghao from here, they would never be able to dodge it anymore.
But Elder Yang knew that Hei Yinghao might be able to block his attack again later, while the Wind Riding Bird would definitely not be able to block his attack from here!
So Elder Yang's next target was not Hei Yinghao nor the fake Crown Prince Feng but the Wind Riding Bird!
Just when Elder Yang raised his crimson blood sword to lash his fourth strike toward Hei Yinghao's Wind Riding Bird from below…
The [Blood of Lust] hidden in his blood suddenly gave him a feeling of intense hunger as if it really wanted to devour something near so badly.
"STOP THERE RIGHT NOW IF YOU DO NOT WANT HER TO DIE~!!!" A sweet feminine voice shouted toward Elder Yang from behind.
Elder Yang turned around to see the source of that lovely sweet voice.
Elder Yang turned around to look at the source of that sweet luscious voice and realized that a black-clothed woman was currently holding at Miss Chou Nu's neck from behind.
Yes, it was Tang Li Xue who sat on her Wind Riding Bird while holding at her perfect copy's neck from behind… since she planned to use her perfect copy as a hostage to threaten Elder Yang.
Elder Yang frowned deeply, but he still decided to lower the crimson blood sword in his grasp.
Hei Yinghao's eyes brightened a lot when he saw Tang Li Xue, and he happily shouted while waved his hands at Tang Li Xue: "Little… Uhh… I feel really glad that you are already safe right now."
Tang Li Xue stared at Hei Yinghao and said: "Go now! I will hold him off for you!"
"What?! But…" Hei Yinghao was quite surprised by Tang Li Xue's words, and he started to hesitate.
How could he just run away and leave his sweetheart behind like this?! He much preferred to let this fake Crown Prince Feng run away alone while he would fight against Elder Yang together with Tang Li Xue.
But the nearby Bing Yi quickly added with a smug tone: "Yes! Just go away, you annoying third-wheel! Leave this enemy for Little… woman and me to face!"
Hei Yinghao's mouth twitched violently in displeasure when he heard Bing Yi's words. Suddenly, he really did not want to go away from here anymore, no matter what will happen.
Tang Li Xue rolled her eyes in vexation and said: "Both of you, just go together and escort him away from here!"
"Ehhhh~! But I want to…" Bing Yi frowned in and protested to Tang Li Xue, but before she could finish her words, Tang Li Xue already interrupted again.
"You two must remember our mission! The completion of the mission will always be our priority!" Tang Li Xue warned Bing Yi and Hei Yinghao with a very stern tone.
Bing Yi and Hei Yinghao were shocked by Tang Li Xue's seriousness.
Tang Li Xue added a few more words with her [Lock-On Telepathy] skill toward Bing Yi and Hei Yinghao: 'You do not need to worry about me. I have many escape skills. I can even use my stealth-type divine ability to escape alone, but I cannot bring all of you with me.'
Of course, Tang Li Xue could actually throw them into her space pouch, but Elder Yang should still be able to track her down.
The tracker that Elder Yang had put on the fake Crown Prince Feng was the most problematic and annoying right now.
It could be said the fake Crown Prince Feng was their biggest burden because Elder Yang could track his location no matter where he would run.
Both Bing Yi and Hei Yinghao also understand that, so they nodded to Tang Li Xue and quickly instructed their Wind Riding Bird to fly away from there.
There was only Tang Li Xue and Elder Yang here right now, facing each other as enemies.
Illuminated by the moonlight under the night skies, the reunion between Xiao Hei and Xiao Bai was far from touching or heartwarming, especially since they were ready to kill each other at every moment if not for Tang Li Xue's perfect copy as a hostage.
