“How can this be, Supervoid Middle Stage.” The Holy Lord of Draconic Demon immediately sensed the powerful force coming from Xi Yue’s body. This kind of power was seemingly substantive, making the Holy Lord of Draconic Demon feel pressure. This force was clearly Supervoid Middle Stage.
“You have unexpectedly reached Supervoid Middle Stage.” The Holy Lord of Draconic Demon was unable to believe this fact. When he killed Great Saint Starkiller, the Water Illusion Fairy at that time was completely unremarkable, but he never imagined that after breaking through to Supervoid Stage a few days ago, she would surprisingly make another break through into Middle Stage. This speed was simply too fast.
At this moment, the Holy Lord of Draconic Demon finally carefully scrutinized Xi Yue.
The girl’s aura was different somehow. Her complexion was beautiful as before, but it had a new, different feeling to it. That beautiful brocade fluttered, and red light unfurled, opening like a pair of wings, outlined as if by an absolutely beautiful brush.
“Just what did the Purple Thunder Monster give you to cultivate.” The Holy Lord of Draconic Demon was unable to breathe.
After assimilating the Clinging Heaven Vermilion Jian Divine Bird’s soul into her body, the current Xi Yue had not only become terrifying, she had also assimilated each one of its powers. Every single one of her movements emitted the presence of the Vermilion Jian.
Forming a hand seal, the flames flowing around Xi Yue’s body rolled up, forming a ray of light that scattered in all directions. These Clinging Fires trapped the Holy Lord of Draconic Demon’s Devil Swords.
The Holy Lord of Draconic Demon hastily rang the Boundless Bell.
Black and white light twisted around the bell. It rocked, sounding like a knell.
Its rings echoed over the Black Turtle Sea.
The Black Turtle Sea immediately sunk into a deathly silence. Even Xi Yue’s “Vermilion Jian Clinging Flames” were influenced by the bell, drastically shrinking before finally extinguishing. The Boundless Bell could settle and reverse the Five Elements and even the Ancient Clinging Fire was not immune.
The Holy Lord of Draconic Demon saw a chance and sneered. He suddenly shouted and raised his hand. The Nine Phantasms Ten Banes Capital Demon Sword formed a profound sword array. Nine stone pillars appeared in the center of this array. On the pillars were depicted malevolent specters breathing black qi and sinister wind. Instantly, the Black Turtle Sea was full of ghostly howls.
This Nine Phantasms Ten Banes Capital Demon Sword was an Ancient Sword Chant. Across all of Liangshan, this was considered to be one of the very best. The Holy Lord of Draconic Demon had endlessly trained these past few days to use the sword array so skillfully. The Devil Swords whistled, and then killing intent nibbled away at Xi Yue.
Xi Yue snorted. Her shoulders trembled.
The feathers on her crimson cloak floated up. The True Spirit of the Clinging Heaven Vermilion Jian appeared, wrapping itself around Xi Yue.
The Holy Lord of Draconic Demon pointed a finger at Xi Yue, a low shout in his mouth.
Ninety Devil Swords trembled in the air and then were entangled by the Clingign Fire, surprisingly unable to approach Xi Yue’s body. The Holy Lord of Draconic Demon again rang the Boundless Bell. Its clear sound reverberated through the world. Even Xi Yue’s firebird transformation weakened under the bell’s toll.
The Holy Lord of Draconic Demon saw this clearly, and his heart was elated.
Although Xi Yue had Supervoid Cultivation, his magic weapon Boundless Bell was renowned. He could win this Star Duel.
Xi Yue wrinkled her brow and pointed a finger.
Green light flew out from her sleeve. This light flashed, revealing a green ruler. The green ruler’s spirit-light magnified, becoming two images that surrounded Xi Yue.
Then, Xi Yue’s Divine Intent moved. The green rulers around her released ten thousand green rainbows that attacked the Holy Lord of Draconic Demon.
When the Holy Lord of Draconic Demon saw this, the color drained from his face in shock: “Dual Modes Ruler!”
The Dual Modes Ruler attacked. Even the Holy Lord of Draconic Demon’s ringing of the Boundless Bell was useless. He hastily activated the Eight Desolates Heavenly Demon Body to withstand this. At the same time, his hands gathered a Heavenly Demon Light. But the Dual Modes Ruler was one of the most famous Spirit Treasures. Xi Yue’s cultivation was also a lvel above his. In the blink of an eye, the Dual Modes Ruler destroyed his abilities, and in another instant, Xi Yue activated the Vermilion Jian’s Clinging Fire over her whole body, swinging her palm at him.
The Clinging Fire fell with the Dual Modes Ruler. This ability made the Holy Lord of Draconic Demon unable to counterattack.
When Li Xiangfei saw that the Holy Lord of Draconic Demon was helpless against Xi Yue, the River Dragon immediately took action. She used White Dragon Enters Dream. The White Night Dragon Carving Sword became a white rainbow dragon-shadow that soared out, instantly confronting the Dual Modes Ruler.
The ruler shadows glowered, the white dragon roared.
A moment later, the Dual Modes Ruler was repelled. Against Clinging Fire, Li Xiangfei wielded the name of Maiden Mountain’s strongest water general. She extended a finger. The Black Turtle Sea formed a water array, instantly washing everything away.
“Watch this.” Fan Ming was furious. Her Five Star Five Chief Demons Infernal Devil Claws attacked Xi Yue.
“Watch your lewd sight.” Zhang Feiyu broke free of the River Dragon’s Star Beast, blocking her with the Flaming Fish King Saber.
She attacked with Fish Dragon Roaming Fire. The flames on her swordtip magnified, burning at Fan Ming.
The Four Star Flaming Fish King Saber did not fall to a disadvantage as it spat a fire fish towards Fan Ming’s black-clothed body. Fan Ming sneered, activating No Return From Evil, trading blows equally.
Boatman Zhang Feiyu’s martial arts were average, but each move could make the Black Turtle Sea surge with flames. Her Flaming Fish King Saber was like a belching golden fish, sucking these flames into the blade, brandishing the power on the blade at an even stronger level. The enemy in the water and fire would receive a disturbance. This was the Boatman’s Innate Skill “Water And Fire Cross.”
Demon King of Chaos Fan Ming was pretty good at martial arts among the Earthly Stars, and her Star Energy was particularly full right now, far from the weakened Zhang Feiyu. Zhang Feiyu and Demon King of Chaos battled exceptionally violently. Two silhouettes blended, the Fish King Saber and Devil Claws clashing back and forth, crying and wailing. They were entangled, extremely stunning.
Li Xiangfei at this time took action. The River Dragon’s Innate Skill was Mixed Seas, which overturned the ocean. In a water battle, she was perhaps the lead character, an absolute martial general. Zhang Yuqi knew of her might and raised the Fish Intestine Saber to fight. White Stripe in the Waves had the Wave Treading Water Escape Innate Skill. Regardless of how many times Li Xiangfei attacked or how she raised the waves of the Black Turtle Sea, the girl could easily travel through them, completely unaffected.
The two great water general traded blows, their water arts emerging in succession.
However, the River Dragon, after all was said and done, was a higher-ranked piece.
Zhang Yuqi gradually gave way. Suddenly, the Fish Intestine Sword swung up a ray of cold light.
Li Xiangfei slashed, slamming away the Fish Intestine Sword.
Zhang Yuqi was shaken. She also used a ray of Water Magic from the White Water Mirror Heart to block the White Night Dragon Carving Sword. A ray of sword-light shot out from the sword. Like a giant drill, it bore down straight onto Zhang Yuqi’s body. Li Xiangfei’s attack was incomparably merciless. Zhang Yuqi blocked again, and then she escaped upon a white wave.
Li Xiangfei gracefully raised her brows. Under the sea, she suddenly vanished away like a dragon from Zhang Yuqi’s attack.
A sharp blade plunged down following a dragon cry from above Zhang Yuqi, without any warning, exceptionally ruthless.
The dragon suddenly cried.
Zhang Yuqi had been directly struck, and her body was covered in bloody cuts.
“Little Sister.” Zhang Feiyu was astonished.
“Worry about yourself.” Fan Ming roared. She attacked with Earth Rank Soul Flying Sword Dispersal.
Black light flashed.
Zhang Feiyu hastily guarded with the Flaming Fish King Saber. Millions of sparks flickered along the blade’s edge. The devil-light of Fan Ming’s Five Chief Demons Infernal Devil Claws were intercepted bit by bit, however, Fan Ming’s Earth Rank was very formidable. Halfway through, a portion still broke through the Flaming Fish KIng Saber and struck Zhang Feiyu.
Zhang Feiyu was repelled, her body sent flying. Fan Ming laughed and rushed forward, about to cut down Zhang Feiyu. Specters multiplied off of her body, a frightening sight. Zhang Feiyu’s red eyes flared with fire. She gripped her sword and slashed.
The flames upon the ocean surged upwards, taking the shape of a fish dragon, as if it had come to life. Its surprisingly overbearing presence instantly trapped Fan Ming in its attack range. Flam and seawater parted, forming a circle.
Fan Ming immediately protected herself with her claws.
The Boatman’s Earth Rank.
Burning Sky And Sea.1
Against any other opponent, Zhang Feiyu’s attack with her last bit of Star Energy would be enough to defeat Fan Ming, but she forgot about River Dragon Li Xiangfei. This Water General was a conqueror. At the first instant that Li Xiangfei sensed danger, the woman broke off her attack on Zhang Yuqi and retreated, her right hand raising the White Night Dragon Carving Sword. Then, she tossed it, and the Black Turtle Sea’s waters unbelievably showed an illusion as if half of it had evaporated. All of it gathered around Li Xiangfei and burst out into a massive pillar of water. This rising, gathering, and release was swift beyond reason, unable to be reacted to.
In the blink of an eye, Li Xiangfei’s Earth Rank Technique was complete – Fury Of The Ocean!
Fury Of The Ocean was completed in an instant.
Both Zhang Feiyu and Zhang Yuqi changed.
“That time, the Purple Thunder Monster protected you. Today, you do not have such luck.” Fan Ming sneered. This was not the first time the Zhang Sisters had faced off against the Holy Lord of Draconic Demon. In fact, they had met before at the Crystal Dragon Palace, but as she said, their defeat at that time had been very wretched.
But this time, the situation was different. Having just obtained the Gen Wu Divine Iron, the Zhang Sisters’ Star Energy was largely spent. Zhang Feiyu’s Earth Rank was unable to even face off against Li Xiangfei’s Earth Rank. Fortunately, the Dual Modes Ruler protected the two girls, barely warding this blow off.
“You had better watch out for that stinking master of yours.” Zhang Yuqi stuck out her tongue.
Both women stopped. Suddenly, Divine Intent moved, and they vomited blood. Turning their heads back, they saw that Xi Yue had unexpectedly completely suppressed the Holy Lord of Draconic Demon. Thus, Xi Yue knew that if they faced off head-on with Star Generals, they absolutely would never defeat the Holy Lord of Draconic Demon. As a result, she settled on the idea of taking care of the Holy Lord of Draconic Demon first.
The Holy Lord of Draconic Demon overestimated himself, somewhat underestimating the past Xi Yue as well.
Afterwards, the Zhang Sisters immediately stalled the other women.
And then Xi Yue launched a fatal strike.
The Holy Lord of Draconic Demon used the Boundless Bell to block Xi Yue. He did not fear her. The two of them battled, one of Devil-light, the other of Clinging Fire, rising into the sky as they clashed. Then, Xi Yue abruptly made an upset.
She stepped forward, the Water Moon Paradise Weave Marked Flying Swords twisted once again.
But this time, the Water Moon Paradise contained blazing Clinging Fire. One half was water, the other half was fire. This was the Boatman’s Innate Skill. The Holy Lord of Draconic Demon urged on the Boundless Bell and his Devil Swords, but before even a few bouts had passed, they were unable to resist Xi Yue’s might.
The girl pointed. The feathers on her crimson cloak suddenly rose, becoming like sharp swords that attacked the Holy Lord of Draconic Demon. The Holy Lord of Draconic Demon did not anticipate this and hastily defended, but Xi Yue’s cultivation was considerably higher than his. In a few short moments, he was defeated. By the time Li Xiangfei had released Fury Of The Ocean, shaking the world, Xi Yue had used the feathers to protect herself, success at once.
She had already poked several fiery holes in the Holy Lord of Draconic Demon’s body.
The Holy Lord of Draconic Demon did not dare believe this. That woman who had never bowed to him had surprisingly injured him.
“Holy Lord.” Li Xiangfei immediately raised the White Night Dragon Carving Sword, only then driving Xi Yue away.
At this time, Xi Yue wanted to use the Clinging Heaven Vermilion Jian to kill the Holy Lord of Draconic Demon, but she suddenly sensed a fluctuation of magic energy come from the Black Turtle Sea. Someone was rapidly approaching. Xi Yue wrinkled her brow. Seeing the Zhang Sisters were injured and unable to continue battle, she could only dismiss the idea. Without even glancing at the Holy Lord of Draconic Demon, she signaled her departure.
The Holy Lord of Draconic Demon’s face was green. He screamed: “Xiangfei, why did you not kill her.”
Li Xiangfei indeed had the confidence that she could beat Xi Yue back into a bloody mess, but that would only satisfy the Holy Lord of Draconic Demon’s vanity. She felt that her Holy Lord needed to truly see things clearly for once. The past and present were already different.
“The Water Illusion Fairy is already very different from before. And you, Holy Lord, what about you…”
