Chapter 569: Hang You in Mid-Air
Translator: Sparrow Translations Editor: Sparrow Translations
With a faint shout, Yue Hongyan roared as a loud sound came from her orifices. Her originally slim body began to expand and in a matter of seconds, she became a humongous goddess!
She was taught Lin Feng’s martial art ultimate move, the Heavenly Hammer of the Eight Trigrams!
Her left fist, which was by her side, smashed out at this moment. With an earth-shattering force, it received Bai Xiqian’s Two Fingers of Yin Yang.
Before Yue Hongyan lashed out, Yue Hongyan’s body trembled with a powerful force. That was the rumble of thunder and now, with that punch, it was like a crack of lightning!
Bai Xiqian was unable to respond to it fast enough. Her index and middle fingers landed on Yue Hongyan’s iron fist and were almost broken.
The second move that followed the Two Fingers of Yin Yang was the Huntian Demon-Destroying Whip that was carving a path through the sky right now as it came towards Yue Hongyan. However, due to the impact of the first blow, the second attack was affected too.
Yue Hongyan took this chance to turn her fortunes around. She waved her Golden Dragon Demon Battle Pole-Ax, which was out of range at the moment, and a roaring golden dragon made out of light appeared and came towards Bai Xiqian.
In that instant, the fortunes of battle were reversed. Bai Xiqian was at a disadvantage. Yue Hongyan’s pole-ax was aimed straight at her and the golden dragon appeared to be rushing to devour her.
Bai Xiqian’s warm and gentle smile disappeared completely from her face. Her expression was unimaginably serious.
Her empty left hand which floated elegantly by her side began to dance elegantly in the air as a heavy Yin aura surrounded it. The Yin aura formed a vortex with the movement of her left hand.
At the same time, her right hand continued to wield the Huntian Demon-Destroying Whip. It brimmed with hard, Yang energy and its violent force was pushed to its limit. Then, the Yang energy burst forth from the whip and too formed a vortex
The waves of Yin and Yang energies swirled around her left and right hand. Together, they squeezed to the center and then began to spin in opposite directions. They clashed non-stop with each other and from within, a powerful and terrifying energy was borne. It made Yue Hongyan’s pole-ax unable to advance a single step more.
The black and white mana that swirled around Bai Xiqian was absorbed into the Yin Yang vortex, greatly increasing its power.
Not only that, Bai Xiqian never stopped moving. Her left hand fluttered in the wind as her right hand wielded the Huntian Demon-Destroying Whip. Powerful waves of mana continued to continue as they turned into vortexes after vortexes and merged with her moves.
As more and more waves Yin and Yang energy were absorbed, heaven and earth began to form as the vortex split into two parts, trapping Yue Hongyan in the center.
The two types of energies continued to spin like two grinders. They were bent on reducing everything between them into fine dust.
Life, space, time, form, soul, mana, spiritual energy, everything must be obliterated and reduced to nothing. Nothing must be left.
The waves of Yin Yang energy seemed to push the grinder downwards as they continually increased its power. Its increase was both exponential and endless.
The Yin and Yang energies were the pushing force and the heavens and earth were the grinders. Together, they sought to crush everything.
That was the pinnacle move of the Great Void Sect’s Yin Yang Mantra of the Void! The Yin Yang crushed while the heavens and earth ground!
Everyone around them, particularly the Nascent Soul stage cultivators, turned pale upon seeing this technique.
Like the Supreme Evil-Suppressing Pillar, this move was one of the powerful signature moves of the Great Void Sect. No Aurous Core stage cultivator should be able to cast it. Its appearance was like cheating and once again cast the outcome of the battle into doubts.
Even if a Nascent Soul stage cultivator used this move, everyone would still be in shock.
Its power commensurated with its difficulty. Even in a sect filled with genii like the Great Void Sect, very few people can master it.
Till now, everyone agreed that it was no longer a matter of who was in the mid-Aurous Core stage or the late-Aurous Core stage, Bai Xiqian’s power was way superior to Ding Runfeng’s.
Even if Ding Runfeng was a pure Yang entity, even if he was successful in cultivating the Pure Yang Righteous Heart Mantra, even if he was capable of challenging the Samsara Sect’s (Path of Hell) grandmaster to a battle of spell formations, which was the latter’s forte.
Once Bai Xiqian revealed her Yin Yang Heaven Crushing Earth Grinding Spell, everyone knew who was the stronger one with a single glance.
Once she deployed that spell, an irreversibly terrifying power crushed Yue Hongyan’s offense into dust.
Bai Xiqian looked at Yue Hongyan and said, “You are powerful. Really, really powerful. If we fight solely based on martial prowess, I am not your enemy.”
“This spell, as I have yet to fully master it, I hope that the Master of the Celestial Sect has prepared some protective object for you. If not, you may actually die as I don’t think I can control myself.”
Yue Hongyan smiled brightly. While her entire body creaked and cracked due to her opponent’s attack, her will to power was never stronger.
In such situations, Yue Hongyan chose not to retreat or hide. Neither did she choose to defend herself.
Her choice was to continue attacking!
The red-haired young woman gripped on her Golden Dragon Demon Battle Pole-Ax and sliced a circle in the air. It was as if she was lifting something heavy. With an exquisite hand motion, she tossed the first wave of Bai Xiqian’s attack to one side.
When everyone saw that, their eyes glowed as they began to exclaim.
While her style of battling was to charge forward relentlessly, Yue Hongyan’s battling techniques were all-rounded. She appeared to know every trick in the book.
Yue Hongyan stared coldly at Bai Xiqian before her and said, “The old me may have lost my cool had you mentioned Zhang Lie before me. However, everything has changed.”
“There are only two outcomes when I meet Zhang Lie. Either I kill him in revenge, or he kills me.”
“Like the battle between us now. Either you kill me, or I kill you!”
With that, Yue Hongyan’s Golden Dragon Demon Battle Pole-Ax began to dance in a frenzy. A terrifying Avīci Infernal Gale began to spread. Bright red light and a heavy, fog-like storm of wind shrouded the battlefield. In the fog and the red light, one could see a purple-gold dragon dancing.
Upon seeing the Avīci Infernal Gale, everyone began to retreat. They rushed to avoid it as if this scene from Hell itself struck fear in everyone’s hearts.
The red-haired young woman before them was able to control every single aspect of the battle, from the energy she used to responding correctly to every single change. She did all these almost instinctively, as if she was born for battle.
It was not that the Yin Yang Heaven Crushing Earth Grinding Spell was not strong enough. However, in terms of battling instincts, the disparity between Bai Xiqian and Yue Hongyan was far too wide. A three-year-old child holding a sharp knife cannot possibly beat an empty-headed grown person.
From afar, an ordinary-looking black-robed young man looked at Yue Hongyan’s intense battling calmly as he nodded his head and said, “After joining the Celestial Sect, you have indeed become much stronger and eye-catching.”
Then, he laughed softly, “However, if you want to kill me, that’s impossible. As you have the protection of the Master of the Celestial Sect, I will not find you too.”
The black-robed young man looked down. He appeared like an ordinary Aurous Core stage cultivator. However, that was not who he really was.
“However, Hongyan, we’ll meet soon.”
He then disappeared without a trace. Yue Hongyan, who was battling at the moment, felt a tiny spark of lightning through her brain. However, it was only momentary.
“Duo!” She grunted. In battle, she devoted all of her attention to what was happening before her and expunged all unnecessary thoughts. The Golden Dragon Demon Battle Pole-Ax in her arms danced even more intensely as it sliced a mythical pattern in the air and once again broke Bai Xiqian’s Yin Yang Heaven Crushing Earth Grinding Spell.
As Yue Hongyan destroyed Bai Xiqian’s attacks one-by-one, her own power continued to increase non-stop.
The energy she spent countering Bai Xiqian’s attack did not go away. Instead, her next attack became even stronger.
She was like a wave in a sea. As her energy accumulated, coupled with the presence of the Avīci Infernal Gale, she gradually became a tsunami.
Finally, the pole-ax in Yue Hongyan’s arms vibrated as a red light flashed and the whole pole-ax began to glow as brightly as a supernova.
Tri Avīci Slaughtering Spear Technique, the Third Technique, Meteor Strike!
To Yue Hongyan, Bai Xiqian’s power could not compare to the Marquis of Jinghuan’s avatar. However, for the red-haired girl with the spirit of a lioness, the best enemy is a dead enemy!
Her Meteor Strike Spear now was much more powerful than the one she used against the Marquis of Jinghuan’s Shenyang Spear. It was also Yue Hongyan’s most powerful martial art move.
The Yin Yang Heaven Crushing Earth Grinding Spell was extremely powerful but it too had a weakness in its center where the two energies of Yin Yang spun in opposite directions like gears. Yue Hongyan took advantage of this fatal flaw and launched her attack.
If she was in the Immortal Soul stage, then the very stars in the sky would have been shattered too.
At this moment, Yue Hongyan only had an Aurous Core level mastery. The frenzied power punched straight through the void and Bai Xiqian’s spell was shattered.
The space where her spell used to be was like a canvas with an entire portion torn out.
The twisted space caused those who saw it felt as if the heaven and earth were inverted at that particular spot.
Bai Xiqian coughed and blood flew from her mouth. Yue Hongyan’s pole-ax pierced her vital spots and a piece of jade began to shine brightly as it stopped the Golden Dragon Demon Battle Pole-Ax. If not for that, Bai Xiqian’s body would have been impaled by Yue Hongyan.
Even till here, Yue Hongyan did not stop. With her pole-ax, she lifted Bai Xiqian into the air.
It was as if Bai Xiqian was impaled by Yue Hongyan on her pole-ax.
In that instant, the white-robed young woman was in a terribly sorry state. All of her air and her posture were gone.
Everyone who saw this sight was shocked as they could not believe it. “The Yin Yang Heaven Crushing Earth Grinding Spell was defeated? A direct disciple of the Great Void Sect, a late-Aurous Core stage disciple, was defeated by an early-Aurous Core stage disciple?”
“Stop!” Ding Runfeng regained his senses as he bellowed in rage. Just as he was about to come to her rescue, someone else beat him to it.
The sky above everyone’s head split open as a white cloud turned into a giant hand. it covered the sky and the sun and came straight towards Yue Hongyan.
At the same time, the space behind Yue Hongyan broke open. Purple gas spewed forth and they too formed the shape of a hand. The other hand rushed towards the white clouds hand!
Yue Hongyan did not think twice. A white light shone above her head and in the center of the light, a crown glowed brightly.
With the help of the Golden Crown of Angels and Demons, Yue Hongyan’s power became even more ferocious as the Golden Dragon Demon Battle Pole-Ax roared and the shape of a single-horned, golden dragon began to form.
