Chapter 584: A Comeback!
Translator: Sparrow Translations Editor: Sparrow Translations
While both of them were severely injured, the two youths stood upright as they stared at each other.
A giant wound crossed Shi Tianhao’s body. It was not just a physical wound but it also damaged his normally-indestructible physical body. Once a single wound appeared on it, his defensive abilities would massively decrease.
Shi Tianyi did not just lose his right arm. When he used the Cong Heaven Thousand Slaughter Method, he concentrated all of his power together. Now, not only was his body damaged, his soul and nascent soul were injured too.
Shi Tianyi’s right eye shone with light. There was an unprecedented brightness in his eye and a much more mystical power began to spread from it.
It turned into a golden light that enveloped Shi Tianyi’s body. In the light, numerous runes appeared.
“My polycoria is the always the most powerful,” Shi Tianyi’s tone was calm and his left eye swept through the crowd before settling on Wang Lin in the Celestial Sect of Wonders.
As he said that, one saw that the space where Shi Tianyi was distorting. Earlier, under Shi Tianhao’s attack, his non-existent right arm began to the appear once again in the light. It appeared to be reforming!
Everyone burst out in acclaim. Xiao Yan, Zhu Yi, and Yue Hongyan turned to look at Wang Lin. Wang Lin shook his head with a heavy expression and said, “That’s not the Avīci Undying Body.”
Yang Qing, who was silent all this while, looked at Shi Tianyi carefully and said, “It does not appear to be a healing spell. There’s no regenerative power in the air.”
Wang Lin nodded his head as he stared intently at Shi Tianyi who was regaining his lost arm. “Correct, it is not a simple matter of healing his physical body. Just now, his soul and nascent soul, both of which were damaged by Little Junior, are recovering as well.”
“This feeling… It felt as if Little Junior’s attack had never even existed. In other words, it felt as if Little Junior did not actually attack him.”
Yue Hongyan’s eyebrows arched as she said, “However, it was clearly a hit and he was injured! He was half-dead and that couldn’t be an illusion made by his right eye. If he was actually injured, how could he recover so quickly?”
Lin Feng then said, “Shi Tianyi’s two dual-pupilled eyes have different uses. His left eye can see through the void and differentiate between illusion and reality. He could also identify weaknesses in his opponents. However, as he was blinded in the Void Battleground, he lost all its abilities.”
“His remaining right eye can create illusions and even a false world. It can also numb his opponent’s senses.”
Lin Feng then looked at Shi Tianyi lazily and said, “When both of his eyes were fine, Shi Tianyi’s polycoria had one use. Closing one eye would increase the power of the other one.”
Everyone exclaimed, “So when his left eye was destroyed, the powers of his right eye increased?”
Lin Feng said, “Correct. Earlier on, his right eye could only create illusions. Now, by increasing its powers, he can distort reality itself and turn what’s real into something false.”
He smiled slightly and said, “Shi Tianyi used the powers of his right eye to turn what happened to him into an illusion.”
Zhu Yi arched his eyebrows, “Does that mean unless he’s killed in an instant or that his right eye is destroyed, any wounds inflicted onto him by any attack will be rendered null?”
Xiao Yan was concerned about another problem, “For powers like his, can he use it on anyone else other than himself? For example, can he use it on Little Junior or any of his opponent?”
“With Shi Tianyi’s current mastery, he can only use it on himself. However, he can’t use it non-stop. After his mastery increases and the power of his polycoria increases, anything is possible,” said Lin Feng. “However, we don’t have to be worried. The secrets of the difference between illusion and reality can be found in the higher teachings of the secrets of the two polarities.”
“By understanding the secrets of illusion and reality, one can stop the power of his polycoria.”
Lin Feng looked at Shi Tianyi and his mouth twitched, “Relax everyone, he can’t do that much.”
Upon hearing his words, Xiao Yan and the rest re-focused their gaze on the Dragon Battle Arena.
There, Shi Tianhao stood firmly in the void as he looked calmly at Shi Tianyi and said, “You owe me something for 12 years. It’s time to repay me.”
The light disappeared and the brightness in Shi Tianyi’s eyes faded by a bit. He then closed his right eye but his expression seemed fine.
The injuries he incurred in his exchange against Shi Tianhao just now appeared to have disappeared completely as if it had never existed.
“I don’t owe you anything. Only the fittest can survive in the world,” said Shi Tianyi calmly. “Had I been the infant earlier and you the young boy who could walk and cultivate, then these things wouldn’t have happened naturally. Conversely, you may have dug out my eyes instead of I taking away your Supreme Tao Foundation.”
He then looked at Shi Tianhao before him as a complicated array of colors danced in his open eyes. “I have to admit that I never thought that you survived and could stand before me now. You have grown a lot, now help me open the Dragon Rock Gate.”
“You forced me to use my trump card. You can take pride in that,” Shi Tianyi’s face was once again deathly calm. “However, it all ends now. My body is at its peak and yours is terribly injured. I doubt you can even suppress my skull of Angmao.”
The space behind Shi Tianhao vibrated slightly like waves in water. However, that was not Shi Tianyi’s doing. Instead, it was the skull of Angmao resisting non-stop as it sought to break through Shi Tianhao’s two Great Chaos Furnace.”
“You can try,” Shi Tianhao’s face did not change.
Shi Tianyi shook his head and said, “You are still a child. You must know, having a big mouth is useless.”
As he said that, a brilliant light appeared on his forehead.
“You always believe that I had taken something from you. Fine, then I will let you see it,” Shi Tianyi looked calmly at Shi Tianhao. “However, this is my power. Now and always.”
As he said that, Shi Tianyi’s forehead glowed brighter till it was unbearable to look at. White light shone from it as it turned the entire Heavenly Dragon Ancient Land’s red skies white.
The light was not hot but a terrifying power trembled within it as it shook the heavens.
It was not about the power of the light, but rather the infinite possibilities it brought with it.
Countless amount of runes appeared as they arranged themselves into mystical patterns. In the next instant, they broke apart and reformed into completely new patterns. This went on non-stop.
Shi Tianyi enunciated every word as he said, “This is my Final Holy Light!”
The powers within it had a certain finality to it. It was the end of all creations, a break. Wherever it passed, it prematurely ended the whatever was there.
The light shot out from Shi Tianyi’s forehead and turned into a shockingly long ray of light. In the light, one could see the shadows of gods and Buddhas dancing. A solemn music and shook the heavens could it heard.
The Holy Light of Creation!
From establishing his supreme spiritual altar to forming his supreme spiritual crucible to forming an anomalous purple pill and finally one’s nascent soul, the Holy Light of Creation was a power that was bestowed only to the one chosen and blessed by the heavens.
Everyone present with the Holy Light of Creation had solemn expressions.
What appeared before them was akin to a stuff of legends. This ray of Holy Light of Creation accompanied Shi Tianyi as he grew up. It became stronger and stronger and seemingly possessed an unlimited amount of potential and strength.
Shi Tianhao looked at the light and sighed softly and said, “That’s not yours, that’s mine.”
Everyone said nothing. If not for the events all those years ago, the person with a smooth cultivation path and who would have now possessed the Final Holy Light would have been Shi Tianhao.
Shi Tianhao looked at the Final Holy Light and a clear light shone from his head. An aurous core brimming with purple light appeared.
The aurous core was transparent like an amber. In the center of the aurous core, one could see infinitely bright light spinning within it. The light appeared to have contained the secrets of all Creation.
The light was weak at first. However, it sensed the presence of the Final Holy Light. The light in Shi Tianhao’s aurous core began to increase exponentially in strength and power!
“Is that another Holy Light of Creation?” Even the Immortal Soul stage elders were shocked as they looked uncertainly at the scene before them. “The junior Shi is truly reborn from Nirvana. Not only did he recover completely from the events of that year, he managed to form his own Holy Light of Creation!”
The entire Dragon Battle Arena burst in a raucous discussion. Everyone looked at Shi Tianhao and said, “Truly a son of heaven!”
Shi Tianhao’s expression was calm. Normally, one could only get the fully-matured Holy Light of Creation after the Nascent Soul stage. However, he was faced Final Holy Light before him was formed one step ahead!
Not only did he manage to produce two Holy Light of Creation, Shi Tianhao was able to create it in the late-Aurous Core stage. No one in history had ever done that. It was unlikely that anyone could do that again. It was truly unprecedented!
As the Final Holy Light came before Shi Tianhao, his aurous core spat out a long ray of light as well that clashed head-on with the Final Holy Light.
“My Final Light of Creation can cut anything and destroy everything! Even if it’s another Holy Light of Creation. Facing me head-on secures me my victory!” Shi Tianyi’s face was solemn as a cold light flashed in his left eye. “I still win!”
Shi Tianhao then said, “With an end, there must be a beginning. With finality, there must be commencement. Who says that the old ending is not the new beginning.”
Where the two rays of light clashed, Shi Tianhao’s Holy Light of Creation was eroded by Shi Tianyi’s Final Holy Light. However, it was unable to destroy it fully. Whenever a part of it was destroyed, it reformed.
Shi Tianyi’s face finally changed. His Final Holy Light could completely end all creation. It had an irreversible destructive power and what it touched could not be recovered. Earlier on, in the Void Battleground, he destroyed Wang Lin’s Narakade. Even with Wang Lin’s regenerative abilities, he was unable to reform it quickly.
However, his Final Holy Light could do nothing against Shi Tianhao’s Holy Light of Creation!
“I’ll say it once more, and that’ll be my final time,” Shi Tianhao’s gaze focused intently on the person who had changed his destiny. “That’s my light. That’s my first Holy Light of Creation and I name it the Final Holy Light.”
“My second Holy Light of Creation is known as Origin Holy Light. Everything has a start and an end. That’s the way of heaven, that’s the way of creation!”
As they came from the same source, they were mutually interdependent. That was why the Final Holy Light was able to help the Origin Holy Light mature faster.
Shi Tianyi said coldly, “Even so, my mastery is higher than yours. My soul, physical body, and mana surpass yours. Regardless who owns the Holy Light of Creation, I win!”
As he said that, the Final Holy Light glowed even stronger as it relentlessly pushed the Origin Holy Light back.
Shi Tianhao shook his head and said, “You have lost.”
As he said that, he waved his hand and something appeared.
