Chapter 822: Zhang Lie’s End
Translator: Sparrow Translations Editor: Sparrow Translations
Yang Qing unleashed the Change of Terminating Grand Yin and revealed the Realm of Terminated Yin. His entire body converted into an aqua man formed by the Grand Moon Primordial Water. Following that, the jade-green Grand Moon Primordial Water quickly turned black. On the surface of it, there was an icy blue fog revolving. Amidst this blue fog, a pale white radiance flashed.
Ever since they started battling, Yang Qing had not made a move yet. He watched everything from one side, while the fire in him burnt intensely. This caused him to descend into a maniacal state, but his mind remained as calm as ever. He was searching for the right opportunity to strike.
It’s fine if he didn’t make a move. But once he did, Zhang Lie was going to pay a huge price.
Right now, the perfect opportunity came!
After Yang Qing entered the Realm of Terminated Yin and unleashed the Solitary Rest of the Grand Moon, the pale white radiance engulfed Zhang Lie. Zhang Lie felt that everything in front of him turned black. In his awareness, everything else disappeared.
Kang Nanhua, the Flowing Sand of Ganges and the Grand Sun Squall all disappeared. Even Yue Hongyan and the Seven Merciless Stars Armor in front of him went missing too.
As the Heavens and Earth disappeared, the sound of the raging wind paused instantly. In Zhang Lie’s mind, what was left was only a pitch-dark night. And in this pitch-dark night, there was a pale moon in the sky. The moon was like a frightening and weird huge eye that looked down on him.
If Zhang Lie was still in his peak state, even if Yang Qing unleashed the Solitary Rest of the Grand Moon, it might not even be effective at all.
But now, Zhang Lie was wrecked with injuries. At the same time, he faced the attacks of both Kang Nanhua and Yue Hongyan, causing him to be trapped.
The Solitary Rest of the Grand Moon of Yang Qing would cause the person struck by the attack to descend into a state where his soul would enter eternal rest. His soul would be assimilated and engulfed by the powers of the Grand Moon, converting it to nothing. At this point, even if the flesh of the person was severed, the person would still be in a coma.
Zhang Lie’s body jerked tremendously and his flesh was cut again. The injury on his left shoulder worsened.
However, he was still an Immortal Soul Stage Elder. His physical martial arts mind was extremely cultivated and powerful. With the combination of his Immortal Soul and physical flesh, he was able to get out of the temporary influence of the Solitary Rest of the Grand Moon. His awareness broke free from the powers of the Grand Moon and his soul re-organized again.
As the Royal Extermination Pole-Ax shook, Zhang Lie crushed the pale-white radiance around him.
Zhang Lie lowered his head and looked at the tip of the Golden Dragon Demon Battle Pole-Ax that was pointing towards his chest. He saw fresh blood, while dark purplish runes summoned a brutal sense of killer aura that rumbled in his body.
As he was disrupted by Yang Qing’s Solitary Rest of the Grand Moon, Zhang Lie lost all room to deal with Yue Hongyan’s Flashing Electro-Star. His flesh was stabbed by this spear and he was dealt a critical blow!
The Seven Merciless Stars Armor around Yue Hongyan’s body flashed with purple light.
Amidst Zhang Lie’s groan, the Royal Extermination Pole-Ax was summoned and Zhang Lie grabbed it in the reverse manner. After that, he stabbed it towards Yue Hongyan.
Yue Hongyan’s brows raised and she glared at him. In her eyes, flames danced. As she faced this attack of Zhang Lie, she gritted her teeth and used the Seven Merciless Stars Armor to resist the attack.
And the Golden Dragon Demon Battle Pole-Ax in her own hands let out a roar. Countless squalls were summoned and they burst out of Zhang Lie’s body towards the outside.
Nine Heavens Formless Squall!
Yue Hongyan’s Divine Spears of the Four Appearances Heavenly Spell, Spear of the Wind, Heaven-Crossing Squall!
This spear was not as ferocious as the Avici Infernal Gale, but it cultivated the powers of the Nine Heavens Formless Squall. It developed an indestructible, destructive power that was able to penetrate the defense of the opponent forcefully.
And at this moment, the Nine Heavens Formless Squall exploded out from Zhang Lie’s stomach. The momentum created from this explosion threatened to tear apart Zhang Lie’s body!
Zhang Lie’s gaze flashed and he roared in pain. On his body, a pouch opened and countless ghostly souls rushed out. They flew towards Yue Hongyan!
These souls were not strong. They were not even cultivated properly. But they caused the color on Yue Hongyan’s face to dissipate and turn extremely pale.
Although he was protected by Kang Nanhua’s powers, Zhao Huan continued to observe the proceedings within the boundaries of Kang Nanhua’s powers. As he witnessed the current scene, he screamed in horror.
Although everything happened in a flash, Zhao Huan was still able to spot that the twisted, ghostly faces of the souls belonged to those from the Liefeng Covenant.
These included his parents!
Their souls were incomplete. After Zhang Lie cultivated these souls, there was no longer any hope for them to be reincarnated!
Either they remained as ghosts eternally, or their souls could be destroyed!
Yue Hongyan turned pale, but the fire in her eyes burned even greater. As she faced these souls that wanted to bite her body, she tried not to resist and allowed them to attack her.
But the powers of the Golden Dragon Demon Battle Pole-Ax increased a notch and she summoned the Heaven-Crossing Squall to its extreme!
Both Yue Hongyan and Zhang Lie roared and the two Pole-Axes of theirs unleashed their full strengths. The two of them were forced back instantaneously.
The Golden Dragon Demon Battle Pole-Ax was finally pulled out from Zhang Lie’s back, along with his blood that showered down.
Right now, the place where Zhang Lie’s heart was was already filled with blood. His energy became weaker and weaker.
Right now, regardless whether it was the wound on his left shoulder or the injury in his heart region, the Grand Moon Primordial Water was trying to heal Zhang Lie.
If he did not use the Grand Moon Primordial Water to strengthen his flesh and did not have the Grand Moon Primordial Water to heal himself right now, Zhang Lie would have collapsed already.
Besides these two major injuries, the minor injuries had already been healed by the Grand Moon Primordial Water. But Zhang Lie’s injury was too serious. As he placed all his energy in treating the two major injuries that he had, the previous wounds that he suffered started to reopen and flow with blood.
Yue Hongyan did not have it easy either. Zhang Lie was determined to fight all the way. As she used the Seven Merciless Stars Armor to resist his blow, although the Royal Extermination Pole-Ax did not pierce through the armor, it was still able to hurt her. She felt as if her organs had shifted their positions inside her body.
Fresh blood flowed out from Yue Hongyan’s mouth, but the physical pain she felt was not comparable to the torment and rage that she felt in her heart.
“Zhang! Lie!” Yue Hongyan glared at Zhang Lie furiously. Her eyes were filled with killing intent. As Zhang Lie opened his mouth, he vomited blood out. But he still laughed, “Don’t all of you like to follow me? Don’t all of you like to rely on me? Don’t all of you like to fight side by side with me?”
“Now that we are fighting side by side, isn’t this what all of you like?”
A small grain of bright gravel flashed on Yue Hongyan’s body and captured the indignant souls within it.
Kang Nanhua’s face turned pale and he did not speak. As the hand of his Cosmic Form waved, countless gusts of Grand Sun Squall attacked Zhang Lie.
Zhang Lie resisted Kang Nanhua’s attack, and felt another ominous feeling rising in his head again. A gust of ferocious aura surrounded him.
Yang Qing, who exhibited the Change of the Cataclysmic Grand Yang and revealed the Realm of the Cataclysmic Yang, converted into an appearance of white, fire giant. Around his body, ferocious black smoke kept on revolving. Nine streaks of black light floated in space and converted into nine dragon figures or nine burning Suns at times.
Nine Complete Yang Destructive Spell!
This spell brought greater pressure to Zhang Lie than the Solitary Rest of the Grand Moon.
It was the true lethal blow!
Zhang Lie summoned the remaining energy that he had and gathered all the physical martial arts cultivation in his body, revealing a light projection of a world filled with a green sea of fire. The boundless True Torch of Ksitigarbha had been cultivated greatly and the Divine Spear of the Earthly Realm collided with the Nine Complete Yang Destructive Spell.
As the nine burning Suns rose, the nine dragon figures descended. A frightening concept that hinted at the apocalypse pressurized the green sea of fire till it became unstable.
And at this point, Kang Nanhua’s Grand Sun Squall attacked again. It combined with Yang Qing’s Nine Complete Yang Destructive Spell. Finally, Zhang Lie was unable to withstand the pressure and the green sea of fire collapsed!
The nine dragon figures rose this time while the nine burning suns set!
The brutal strength landed above Zhang Lie, causing him to scream in horror. He was finally unable to take it. From head to toe, his entire body was like firecrackers, as they exploded. Nine bloody holes were formed from the explosion and Zhang Lie’s entire body was about to be crushed.
Amidst the explosion, a figure donning a purple robe and who had red hair appeared suddenly. The figure used a spear to summon lightning and the Unstoppable Thunderstorm Spear struck the last blow towards Zhang Lie!
As the spear struck, the cultivated physical flesh of Zhang Lie was completely destroyed. He converted into a ball of blood fog and there was no corpse left.
Yue Hongyan’s eyes turned blood red, as she stared at the blood fog. She saw the blood fog twisting tremendously. Within it, it was as if there was a light projection flashing. The fog wanted to reform physical flesh, but it was unable to do so.
That was Zhang Lie’s Immortal Soul. But now, it’s not only his physical flesh that was damaged. His Immortal Soul was also heavily damaged. What was left was only his battered soul.
Yue Hongyan wanted to finish Zhang Lie, but Yang Qing walked over, “Fourth Senior, don’t be fooled. He wants to die now.”
At this point, void space cracked open and an indifferent youth in white hair walked out. His face was pale and his lips were also slightly bloodied.
This youth was Wang Lin. He looked at the blood fog and summoned the Pearl of Styx. He used his mana to keep the blood fog.
The blood fog sounded with the furious groans of Zhang Lie.
Wang Lin’s Cosmic Form appeared and extended its eight limbs to grab hold onto the Royal Extermination Pole-Ax. They ferociously repressed this magic treasure.
Yang Qing looked at the Pearl of Styx and said, “Third Senior, I will have to trouble you to settle him.”
Kang Nanhua swung his hand and the gravel that contained the indignant souls of those from the Liefeng Covenant drifted into the Pearl of Styx. The gravel disappeared and the bunch of indignant souls roared furiously as they surrounded Zhang Lie’s battered soul.
Zhang Lie wanted to retaliate, but Wang Lin used the River Styx Primordial Water to suppress him. He could only watch as the other souls attacked him.
Wang Lin’s voice sounded, “Although they can’t reincarnate, I can try using a secret manual to lessen their torment. When that happens, those who don’t want to remain as ghosts can return. But if they want to remain as ghosts, the Celestial Sect of Wonders can accommodate them too. Although it takes some time to comprehend the secret manual, I have a way of doing it in my mind right now.”
Kang Nanhua stared at Zhang Lie and said coldly, “Zhang Lie, as for you, you better atone for your sins by following Yang Qing around to do good. When you return to the sect, you shall serve those from the Liefeng Covenant. This is your deserved punishment!”
“I won’t return to those days!” Zhang Lie lost his cool and shouted. But his voice was drowned amidst the bunch of ghostly souls.
