Evil Sword Sovereign King (XII)
The pitch black Evil Qi hurricane was like a beast’s mouth, swallowing Su You Rong whole. From inside the Evil Qi, countless of sword images and Evil Spirit claws came out, congesting the spaces all around it completely without leaving any gaps.
The other people were all stupefied watching the ruthless scene, all the weaker cultivators had long been scared witless.
Regardless if it was Yan Yu’s technique or Li Mu Qing’s skill, against such a scene, the difference was like an amateur magician in front of a great sorcerer.
So the most terrifying was actually not Valkyrie or Wan Zang Tian, but the man who changed his name to Wu Yun, Su Yun!
But Su Yun suddenly stopped. The strong wind dispersed. His entire body was drenched in blood, the blood mist around gradually dissipated, and Su You Rong’s body had long since disappeared.
She was completely minced, even the traces of meat were gone, this time, even if Mu Yi had some revival technique, she was definitely unable to revive Su You Rong.
“This is? Evil Sword Technique!”
Just then, Pu Yao seemed to have caught onto some clues, and spoke softly: “Human, are you part of the Evil Sword Sect?”
Evil Sword Sect? This Pu Yao’s cultivation is strong, seems like his knowledge is more vast than average people, from the tone of his, does he have any connection with them?
Thinking about that, Su Yun nodded his head: “I am from Evil Sword Sect!”
Pu Yao nodded his head, and laughed: “Your Highness, Evil Sword Sect is the first place we are going to take over in the Evil Realm, if we bring him back to be tortured, and force him to speak of information regarding the Evil Sword Sect, it will definitely benefit us in bringing down the Evil Sword Sect!”
“Good!” Mu Yi nodded her head.
Su Yun was enraged: “So in the end, you still want to kill me?”
“Your talent is very high, I want your spirit.”
Mu Yi spoke indifferently: “And you killed my men, how can I let you go?”
“Heh, you think you have the power to kill me?”
Su Yun said coldly.
With that, the entire Sacred Palace became quiet.
Suddenly, laughter came out.
All of the Spirit Demon beings released ear piercing laughters, the laughters formed to become extremely disgusting to listen to, as it resonated throughout the entire Sacred Palace.
“Hahahaha, does this human have no brains? With Master Pu Yao here, he dares speak of such words, if Master Pu Yao makes a move, even with his little finger, he can devastate you!”
“Truly a frog in the well, Your Highness, this subordinate suggest to extract his spirit first, to torture before being used for refinement, let him pay the price for saying such absurd things!”
“This subordinate agrees!”
“This subordinate agrees as well!”
All of the Spirit Demon beings laughed.
Mu Yi did not care about them, her eyes fixated on Su Yun.
“Do You remember the Sprite’s Shadow?” She gently spoke, but her tone filled with obvious killing intent: “You killed my subordinates, stole my treasure, constantly humiliating me. Su Yun, I do not know where you have such gall to speak such words, but today, even the Old Heaven will not save you!”
“Old Heaven? I am the Old Heaven today! Mu Yi! If you have the ability, would you dare to allow the subordinate beside you to fight against me one on one?” Su Yun bellowed.
“Overestimating yourself!” Mu Yi gave Pu Yao a meaningful look.
Pu Yao understood, and immediately took action, with lightning speed, he pounced onto Su Yun.
In that moment, all of the Spirit Demon beings around Su Yun were forcefully pushed back, the imposing Qi was truly too savage for them to handle!
Pu Yao had taken action, but he was so fast that an afterimage was left behind, while his true body was already close to Su Yun.
No one could catch up to that speed, even the four Spirit Star Realm officials were dazzled by his speed.
A sinister Spirit Demon hand grabbed towards Su Yun’s neck.
If it connected, Su Yun’s throat would be crushed.
But just when Pu Yao was attacking, a whoosh sound came out, a black gust of wind, with Su Yun as the center, dispersed out, and almost at the same time, the ground in front of Su Yun suddenly split open, and a 5m tall gigantic blood tombstone appeared.
Pu Yao’s attack struck the tombstone, and was directly deflected back, falling to the ground. His face was pale white, and his hand, was actually broken into pieces!
“That’s Sprite Shadow’s consummate skill!”
Mu Yi frowned: “Be careful, he has many treasures on him, and all of them are unique!”
“Blood Tombstone, Lower Core Level! Able to transfer all damage and injuries dealt upon it back to the attacker!”
Su Yun said indifferently.
Even fourth stage Spirit Star cultivators were no exception.
The tombstone collapsed, revealing Su Yun’s pale face. At that moment, he dare not hesitate, and activated the Heavenly Crystal which was on his chest. Immediately, his Qi surged, producing an immense aura, which was so terrifying it covered the entire Sacred Palace.
Seeing that, Mu Yi frowned further.
Pu Yao stood up, his eyes glaring at Su Yun, revealing a look of astonishment but he very quickly dispersed it.
“Princess, do not worry, this man is just a sixth stage Spirit Soul Realm cultivator, even with the help of Heavenly Crystal, his strength would not be increased so dramatically, I think at most he would be at the first stage Spirit Star Realm.” Pu Yao said.
That was true, Su Yun’s Qi had soared into the first stage Spirit Star Realm before stopping. The Heavenly Crystal’s power was truly very strong, but towards the later stages, every distance to cover for every leap in cultivation became much harder and harder. The Heavenly Crystal could currently bestow Su Yun with a great difference of five levels, but when he reach the Spirit Star Realm, it would most probably only increase by a level.
But even so, it was heaven-defying. After all, many people had spent their whole lives, but were unable to step into the next level of cultivation.
“First stage Spirit Star Realm!”
Valkyrie who was at the back muttered.
“Young Miss, he is relying on treasures to be like that, it is nothing worth bragging about, in terms of techniques, Young Miss is multiple times stronger than him.”
Xiao Xue who was beside her anxiously said.
“Martial skills are not just represented by strength, strength includes cultivation, martial skills, mystical techniques, treasures, all of these are factors of strength. Su Yun’s treasure is able to increase his cultivation into the first stage of the Spirit Star Realm, I am unable to win against him, in terms of pure strength, I am not his match!”
Valkyrie’s fists were secretly clenched, her eyes brimming with dense fighting spirit.
Other than Valkyrie, Yan Yu, Mo Lei and Lin Tian Yin were all looking at Su Yun with passion.
Seeing that his strength had increased so dramatically in such a short time, they all understood that Su Yun had many cards left to play.
Maybe he would be able to bring some hope to them.
Currently he was still not Pu Yao’s match, but other than Pu Yao, all the other Spirit Demon beings were all manageable.
Just then, Mu Yi spoke out calmly.
“The strongest enemy you’ve killed before, what was that person’s cultivation?”
Pu Yao thought for a while, then cupped his fist and replied: “Third stage Spirit Star Realm.”
“How long did that take?”
“We fought for three days and three nights.”
“Then how long do you need to kill him?” Mu Yi asked in a serious tone.
Hearing that, his stern face accidentally revealed a look of disdain: “One incense stick of time!”
“That’s good! One incense stick of time, if you cannot kill him! I will hand you over to Father for punishment!”
Hearing that, his sunken eyes turned cold, his afterimage twitched, he had pounced onto Su Yun again.
He was completely bent on killing him.
An intense pressure unable to be resisted emerged inside the entire Sacred Palace, causing all Spirit Demon beings and the Mountain River List participants to be suppressed, it was so powerful it caused them to retreat to the walls by the side, leaving a huge empty space in the middle.
Su Yun felt as if a God had come down against him, a strange unwillingness to resist actually birthed in his heart. This thought was extremely fatal, if a person lost his will to fight, how could he ever pose a threat?
Pu Yao bellowed, releasing a palm at Su Yun.
There were no beautiful light auras, or any terrifying Qi, it was just a palm, like two friends jokingly slapping each other.
The more tranquil it was, the more terrifying it would be.
Su Yun summoned his last thread of staunch will, wielding the Death Sword, he blocked towards Pu Yao’s direction.
An earth shattering explosion resonated from the Death Sword. Before Su Yun could react, he was immobilized and was stuck to the ground, fiercely smashed down. The entire Sacred Palace submerged by a centimeter, the floors cracked, even the people around suffered the shock wave of Pu Yao’s attack. All of the objects lying around swaying due to the impact along with a few already injured people coughed out blood.
Su Yun was in confusion, he could feel his Profound Spirit Qi being dissipated, his blood churning around, it was unbearable. He quickly climbed up, to see Pu Yao coming close once again.
“You have some talent, to not die after taking one of my hits, but you will not be so lucky every single time!”
Su Yun threw the Death Sword towards Pu Yao.
Following swiftly behind were the sub swords, filled with sword concepts, along with the power brought forth from his first stage Spirit Star Realm, it wield the might of a mountain as he retaliated.
However, Pu Yao waved both his arms in mid air, conjuring a burst of Spirit Demon Qi that transformed into a huge blade, parrying all the incoming sub swords, a portion of the sub swords that connected with the Spirit Demon blade’s edge split into pieces, including the Engraved Dragon Blade.
Seeing that, Su Yun frowned.
“Young master, be careful!”
Qing’er who was still injured by the side screamed, and was about to rush forward.
“Qing’er, don’t come over!”
Su Yun roared, following that he extended his hand to his back to retrieve the blood red sword!
Seeing that, everyone including Valkyrie and Mo Ye all opened their eyes wide in unison.
This particular sword was always on Wu Yun’s back, but he had never used it, not even once. At that moment, everyone wanted to see what peculiarity did that sword possess.
Without hesitation, Su Yun unsheathed the sword, which released a red light that flickered and soared towards Pu Yao.
But Pu Yao did not even bother to dodge, allowing the sword to pierce his chest, while his hand reached for Su Yun.
Su Yun was instantly flung out, colliding onto the Sacred Palace’s barrier, causing the enchantments of the Sacred Palace to self activate, but just as the enchantment opened up ten barriers, it was immediately destroyed to eight, and the barrier started to crumble into pieces.
“Su Yun! Is that all you’ve got?” Mu Yi who was at the side frowned, as though she was greatly disappointed with Su Yun’s strength.
It was not only Mu Yi, even the participants revealed disappointment.
Who knew that that when Su Yun unsheathed the sword he never used, he did not even managed to use it well, it was such a good opportunity, yet he did not even harm Pu Yao in the slightest, and instead got struck by Pu Yao.
Su Yun coughed violently, spitting out black blood, using all his strength to stand up, his pale face revealed a smile: “Says who?”
“Huh?” Pu Yao’s face changed.
Suddenly, he began to feel a chill. Immediately, he lowered his head to look at his chest, only to see a deep red circle embedded on him.
Buzz buzz buzz buzz
Suddenly, the Sword Sheath on Su Yun’s back started to tremble violently, as though there was something inside that wanted to jump out.
He unhooked the Sword Sheath and held it in his hand, pointing it towards the sky. Immediately, the Sword Sheath opened up, a burst of swords flowed out like a river, straight for Pu Yao! The swords were aiming for the circle dot on his chest.
In that moment, it looked as though the Sacred Palace was constructed by swords.
