Chapter 1015 – Ambush in the Palace
Within the hall where the teleportation array was located, the Ninth Prince and Old Ying were surrounded by five people in black clothes. Draconic providence surrounded the Ninth Prince and increased his battle-power to the level of a Sacred Lord. He held an ancient green sword of lightning and slashed forward, sending a bolt of lightning into the sky.
A male wearing a black mask and holding a dark green dagger sliced gently through the air, and a wicked surge of Sacred Power crushed the lightning.
“This isn’t good.” Old Ying stood behind the Ninth Prince. Blood dripped from his chest, and around them both were the bodies of more than a dozen guards.
Although the Ninth Prince’s battle-power had reached the level of a Sacred Lord by relying on his draconic providence, he still wasn’t a match for this male with a mask.
Apart from the male with a mask, the remaining people in black had all reached the level of Quasi-Sacred Lords, and they were ranked around 20th on the assassination rankings of Black Screen Corner.
Black and white Mystic Power raged in the air above the hall as explosions sounded continuously. A large array surrounded the hall and blocked the shockwaves from the fight as well as everything inside it.
“Sacred Lord Cang Qiong, you will die here today as well!” A skinny male wearing dark gray armor and holding a black spear suddenly thrust out with the spear.
A blur of black spears stabbed forward in the hall.
“Sacred Lord Black Shark, who sent you here to assassinate the Ninth Prince!?” Sacred Lord Cang Qiong quickly slashed forward with his crystalline white sword, sending beams of white sword-light toward the flashes of black spears thrust out by Sacred Lord Black Shark.
Sacred Lord Black Shark was a Sacred Lord who was ranked among the top ten assassins of Black Screen Corner. He was different from other assassins; Sacred Lord Black Shark was bloodthirsty and finished off his targets with raw power.
“Stop talking so much nonsense!” Sacred Lord Black Shark harrumphed in disdain as he stabbed out with his spear, and a ball of black light with a dark aura shook the air as it arrived in front of Sacred Lord Cang Qiong.
Sacred Lord Cang Qiong was sent flying into the array behind himself.
“Sacred Lord Cang Qiong!” Old Ying’s eyes were dim.
Their journey here had been safe, but he didn’t expect the danger to be hidden until the last moment. The assassins hid themselves here waiting for the Ninth Prince and took control of the entire teleportation hall. All the guards apart from Sacred Lord Cang Qiong had been killed. An extremely skillful array had been set up around the hall, and it blocked out all the noise and power inside. Those outside probably didn’t even know what was happening here.
“White Flowing Sword Technique!” Sacred Lord Cang Qiong charged forward once more, displaying extremely profound Sword Intent. At the same time, he merged the projection of his Little World into reality. The entire hall seemed to be covered in limitless white light as Sword Intent shot into the sky.
Countless images of white swords followed Sacred Lord Cang Qiong’s momentum and stabbed toward Sacred Lord Black Shark.
“Break!” A wave of chaotic darkness suddenly appeared behind Sacred Lord Black Shark and destroyed all the images of white sword-light. The power of Sacred Lord Cang Qiong’s Little World projection was also somewhat damaged.
“Not good, Sacred Lord Cang Qiong is about to be defeated!” Old Ying felt solemn.
Sacred Lord Cang Qiong wasn’t a match for Sacred Lord Black Shark, and the Ninth Prince wouldn’t be able to stand very long against the masked male.
“Old Ying, don’t worry! Help is on the way!” The Ninth Prince suddenly revealed a joyful expression.
Old Ying faltered for a moment. They had been trapped in here for quite a while now. If there were people coming here to save them, they would have come long ago.
“Hehehe, you’re still depending on others to save you!?” The masked male smiled mockingly.
The array around the hall didn’t just block all noise and power, it also stopped Spiritual Senses. Their plan was extremely well thought out. No accidents could happen.
The masked male suddenly charged forward, and his dark green dagger glittered with a coldness as it moved silently around the Ninth Prince.
However, at the next moment:
The entrance to the hall was blasted open. Several guards in black armor were deformed by the terrifying force.
Zhao Feng smashed straight through the array and charged inside while the members of the Ji Family and Emperor Ghost Scales stalled the other black-armored guards.
“Who’s there!?” The black-clad assassins in front of the Ninth Prince exclaimed. Sacred Lord Black Shark and the masked male also paused for a moment.
“Zhao Feng!” The Ninth Prince cried out with joy.
A moment ago, he felt the existence of his Imperial Sky Token. He had given his Imperial Sky Token to Zhao Feng, and this was why he knew that he was going to be saved.
Old Ying had a surprised expression. Why was Zhao Feng here? At the same time, he realized that the array seemed to break very easily from the outside.
“Hmph, since you’ve come in, you’ll have no opportunity to leave!” Sacred Lord Black Shark harrumphed in anger as he messaged some other people. At the same time, the masked male and the others in black who were surrounding the Ninth Prince and Old Ying left them behind and charged toward Zhao Feng.
They knew Zhao Feng’s true strength, but they had one Sacred Lord and four Quasi-Sacred Lords. They would definitely be able to suppress Zhao Feng.
Peng! Peng! Boom!
Sacred Lord Black Shark suddenly released more power and charged toward Sacred Lord Cang Qiong in a frenzy, as if he wanted to finish the fight as soon as possible.
“Zhao Feng, you’re also one of the targets of Black Corner Screen. This means that we can finish two top-ten targets at the same time.” The masked male and the others in black were all very excited. All they needed to do was stall Zhao Feng until Sacred Lord Black Shark finished off Sacred Lord Cang Qiong. Everything would end soon after that.
“With just you?” Zhao Feng snickered as Eye Intent started to shoot out from his left eye.
“Forbidden Illusion Lost World!”
A surge of soul power from his Lightning Soul Body entered his left eye. Zhao Feng’s left eye then turned into a world of limitless purple and gold, and it radiated an extremely alluring sensation.
The five in front of Zhao Feng instinctively looked toward Zhao Feng’s eye, and in the next instant, they lost control of their consciousness and started to struggle.
The masked male retreated several dozen steps and completely circulated his Soul Intent, but the four Quasi-Sacred Lords tried to struggle for a short while before losing all light in their eyes and becoming unable to move.
“This…” The masked male steadied himself as an incredulous expression appeared on his face.
Although he had retreated quickly to escape the range of Zhao Feng’s eye-bloodline technique, the illusion still had a very big effect on him. On top of that, the four Quasi-Sacred Lords were acting like they were braindead, and they just stood there.
“How is this possible!?” The masked male’s soul shook.
One had to know that the Quasi-Sacred Lords that came with them were all super assassins from Black Corner Screen; they weren’t any weaker than the Quasi-Sacred Lords that took part in the Crown Prince trial. However, one glance from Zhao Feng instantly defeated them.
“Black Shark, faster!” The masked male revealed an angry and surprised expression as he messaged.
“You bunch of trash!” Sacred Lord Black Shark harrumphed in anger. He had obviously seen what was happening as well.
Zhao Feng had become much stronger than when he was in the Crown Prince trial. They had no intel about these powerful illusions that Zhao Feng had.
Although Sacred Lord Black Shark was much stronger than Sacred Lord Cang Qiong, it would be very hard to defeat him quickly.
“So strong!” Sacred Lord Cang Qiong revealed a joyful expression as he circulated his Sacred Power at full strength in order to stall Sacred Lord Black Shark for a while longer.
“Zhao Feng has become even stronger!” Old Ying revealed a faint smile. From the looks of it, they were saved indeed.
Weng! Weng! Weng!
Zhao Feng circulated the Sacred Lightning Body and became taller. Lightning covered his body as he charged forward with a terrifying force of lightning.
Bam! Bam! Bam! Bam!
The four in black were sent flying by Zhao Feng. No one knew if they were alive or dead.
“Twilight Dark Shadow!” The masked male slashed out with the dark green dagger, and layers of dark green light sliced toward Zhao Feng. At the same time, the masked male circulated his Soul Intent in order to block Zhao Feng’s Soul eye-bloodline techniques.
Weng~ Whoosh! Whoosh!
A pair of scarlet wings expanded behind Zhao Feng’s back.
The masked male was very strong. Zhao Feng didn’t dare to block his attacks head-on since his Sacred Lightning Body hadn’t broken through to the 6th level yet.
Zhao Feng left behind a trail of lightning in the sky as he dodged the attack and shot toward the masked male.
Whoosh! Whoosh! Whoosh!
The masked male started to become half-transparent as he slashed out a few more beams of dark green light before trying to escape.
However, a cold Intent suddenly appeared from behind him.
A shadow-like dagger stabbed into the masked male’s back.
“What!? Shadow Kill Imperial Dagger?” The masked male revealed a stunned expression.
Shadow Kill Imperial Daggers countered the Sacred Bodies of Mystic Light Realm Sacred Lords to a certain degree.
As he was stunned, a critical sensation suddenly washed over him, and the little thieving cat turned into a streak of gray light that disappeared into the air.
“Wind Lightning Eye Flame!”
A transparent purple-and-gold fire with countless symbols of God Tribulation Lightning slammed into the masked male. A ball of Destructive lightning-fire started to burn the masked male’s body and soul.
The wings on Zhao Feng’s back released a glow of red light that pushed his speed to the limit, and he slammed into the masked male.
The entire process was extremely smooth like a stream of flowing water, and it happened within two breaths.
Boom! Boom! Boom!
Zhao Feng then closed in on the masked male and slammed his fists into the masked male’s body.
Zhao Feng’s Fire of Wind Lightning contained the symbols of God Tribulation Lightning. At the same time, his Sacred Lightning Body contained the power of ancient lightning, which was also very destructive toward Sacred Bodies.
Against Zhao Feng’s barrage of fierce blows, the masked male was smashed into the ground.
The next instant, Zhao Feng flew into the air and charged toward Sacred Lord Black Shark. In a situation as dangerous as this, Zhao Feng definitely wouldn’t go easy on the enemy.
“What a bunch of useless trash!” Sacred Lord Black Shark had been completely suppressing Sacred Lord Cang Qiong. If he had ten more breaths, he would have won, but his comrades couldn’t even stall Zhao Feng for five breaths.
“Great!” Sacred Lord Cang Qiong was overjoyed. Zhao Feng’s strength had exceeded his expectations; he actually managed to finish off everyone else so quickly.
“Hmph!” Sacred Lord Black Shark revealed a nasty expression as he turned around and chose to escape.
The change in tide had been too fast. Based on the strength that Zhao Feng displayed, if Sacred Lord Cang Qiong teamed up with Zhao Feng, even Sacred Lord Black Shark would be defeated here.
“Fuck off!” Before Sacred Lord Black Shark escaped, he thrust out his spear toward Zhao Feng, and a ball of chaotic light charged toward Zhao Feng like a fierce shark.
“Stop him!” Zhao Feng circulated his Eye Intent and formed a purple-and-gold crystalline spike of lightning that stabbed toward Sacred Lord Black Shark.
At the same time, Sacred Lord Black Shark’s attack landed on Zhao Feng and pushed him back.
Sacred Lord Black Shark screamed, and a dark green bracelet on his wrist blinked with a dark green light that reduced the damage he took.
Sacred Lord Black Shark turned into a ball of darkness and sped toward the exit. Sacred Lord Cang Qiong was heavily injured and unable to stop him.
Zhao Feng’s expression changed dramatically. Those from the Ji Family that had followed him were still outside. If Sacred Lord Black Shark chose to finish them off while he ran, then Ji Lan, Emperor Ghost Scales, and company – who only had the strength of a peak Emperor – would be unable to fight back.
