Chapter 552 – Sending Failure
In the Purple Saint Ruins, the clash between Zhao Feng and Lu Tianyi’s group finally ended.
Lu Tianyi’s body froze, and there was no longer an aura of life coming from him. No one knew whether he was dead or alive.
In such a state, even if he wasn’t dead, he wasn’t far from it.
The only one from Lu Tianyi’s group that was unharmed was Zhuang Wan’er.
In the outside world, the spectating experts from the three sects had shocked expressions.
Not only was Lu Tianyi strong, he also had a powerful killing move, but he was suppressed by Zhao Feng from beginning till end.
In fact, this was the second time Lu Tianyi had been defeated by Zhao Feng.
Last time, he needed a Void God Realm King to save him. At this moment, the three Void God Realms fell into dead-silence.
It was obvious that none of them thought that their plan for taking the Purple Saint Ruins would be destroyed by a measly True Lord Rank.
Dark mist condensed in the air and started to erode everything within a mile or two with its curse.
The skeletal Division Leader waved the black flag and slowly pushed the Ghost Corpse Cursed Array toward Elder Shui Yun and company.
Elder Shui Yun went to save Lu Tianyi and took out the Green Water Fallen Pearl.
A layer of water formed the Green Sky Water Border and blocked the Ghost Corpse Cursed Array’s power. At the same time, Ye Yanyu and Zhuang Wan’er both took out their own tattered Earth-Grade weapons. Their auras were extremely powerful and their battle-power came close to a Sovereign’s.
With their combined strength, the two destroyed any power from the Ghost Corpse Cursed Array that came near them. Their combined battle-power was completely comparable to a Sovereign, and they would even be able to exchange a couple blows with Lu Tianyi at his peak.
“That bitch hasn’t fully recovered yet, and those two brats aren’t any threat.”
The skeletal Division Leader awaited Zhao Feng’s order.
Thirty-eight cursed ghost-corpses formed the array and, after absorbing the blood essence of countless beasts, the skeletal Division Leader could crush normal Sovereigns with it.
Elder Shui Yun and company were wary, and the Elder was extremely uneasy.
On one end, there was Zhao Feng and the skeletal Division Leader’s strength, and on the other end, Lu Tianyi’s injuries were worse than she imagined. Even she didn’t feel confident that she could heal him.
However, Ye Yanyu and Zhuang Wan’er revealed no signs of retreat.
Zhao Feng said expressionlessly.
In the next instant, the Wings of Wind and Lightning flapped and Zhao Feng disappeared.
The skeletal Division Leader also vanished at the same time.
Elder Shui Yun and company looked at each other in surprise. Ye Yanyu and Zhuang Wan’er didn’t understand. Zhao Feng had the advantage. Why didn’t he pursue it?
Elder Shui Yun let out a breath. The strength of that blue-haired youth had reached a level that even she was wary of. He could control Sovereign beasts, and he had an Earth-Grade weapon, a Sovereign slave, and the Ghost Corpse Cursed Array.
And the most troublesome thing was his eye-bloodline.
On the other side, Zhao Feng landed in the mysterious canyon.
“Master, those chicks are in a weak state right now. If we don’t attack now and she rescues Lu Tianyi…”
The skeletal Division Leader said unwillingly from within the Ten Thousand Ghost Pearl.
“Now’s not the right time. Who knows if they still have a killing move similar to the Void God Protection? Ye Yanyu and Zhuang Wan’er are both disciples of Void God Realms.”
Zhao Feng shook his head and the skeletal Division Leader’s heart twitched after it heard that. It knew how terrifying a Void God Protection was.
Even when it was at its peak, it would be severely injured if not killed if it was hit by a Void God Protection.
On top of that, Zhao Feng’s Jade Dragon Protection was broken.
Even if only one of those three had a Void God Protection, the situation would be horrible.
“As for Lu Tianyi, his organs have been crushed and his lifeforce has almost flickered out. Even his soul is sleeping.”
Zhao Feng said. His God’s Spiritual Eye had scanned Lu Tianyi’s body, so Zhao Feng knew his situation even better than Elder Shui Yun.
“Then what should we do now?”
The skeletal Division Leader seemed to think.
“Drag it out.”
A light flashed through Zhao Feng’s eyes, “The Purple Saint Ruins is our territory; we can become stronger here, while they need to spend a lot of effort to move a single step.”
A while later, Zhao Feng landed back onto the Towering Tree Yao and started to heal it.
There were many treasures in the Purple Saint Ruins, so it wasn’t hard to fix the Towering Tree Yao’s injuries.
However, his most important task right now was still to fix the dimensional hole.
The skeletal Division Leader quickly started crafting cursed ghost-corpses in the Ten Thousand Ghost Pearl.
In his spare time, Zhao Feng would occasionally annoy Elder Shui Yun and company.
In the blink of an eye, another half-month passed, and half of the hundred corpses had been refined.
On the other hand, Elder Shui Yun had to keep running from Zhao Feng’s Eye of Heaven, and Ye Yanyu and Zhuang Wan’er were in desperate situations several times.
If it weren’t for Elder Shui Yun, those two would’ve already died ages ago. Zhao Feng was more wary and troubled by Elder Shui Yun.
In his eyes, she was more troublesome than Lu Tianyi. She had a powerful defense and could quickly heal herself and the others very quickly. As long as she wasn’t killed, no matter how severely injured the others were, they could recover.
In the past few days, even though Lu Tianyi hadn’t woken up, his aura had become more stable. Zhao Feng had to admit he had underestimated Elder Shui Yun’s methods.
Of course, that wasn’t entirely his fault. If he was to know that Elder Shui Yun was famed even across all three sects for her healing abilities, he wouldn’t have underestimated her.
“Brother Zhao Feng, the three major holes are almost fully fixed. Even the canyon is 90% fixed.”
Zhao Yufei’s voice sounded. She was now half-owner of the Purple Saint Ruins and could sense the dimension extremely well.
“Zhao Feng, your control of the situation has been extremely strong. The three sects only have a 30% chance at most to open another spatial hole.”
The Purple Saint Partial Spirit praised.
Even when the first two groups came, Zhao Feng focused on fixing the holes and didn’t spend much time pursuing them.
His eyes looked ahead. Stopping the three sects from entering the ruins was the critical matter.
Two days later, Zhao Feng once again felt a disturbance in space as he sat on the Towering Tree Yao.
However, this time was different from the last. It seemed to not contain enough energy. Because the holes were fixed, the space was stronger, so the difficulty of opening a spatial hole increased drastically.
“Good news, the three sects didn’t succeed.”
The Purple Saint Partial Spirit said, allowing Zhao Yufei and the skeletal Division Leader to both let out a breath.
A smile appeared on Zhao Feng’s mouth. He had given up killing Elder Shui Yun and company for this.
“So, this was Zhao Feng’s plan?”
The skeletal Division Leader couldn’t help but admire Zhao Feng. He didn’t care about momentary victory and managed to stop the three sects from sending any more people.
As time passed, the success rate of the three sects sending in more people would become smaller and smaller, and at the end, the chances would be infinitely close to zero.
“Even if Lu Tianyi recovers, he’s not a threat anymore. Without any more support, we can ‘close the door and beat the dogs’ now.”
Zhao Feng’s smile became bigger.
It could be said that the clash between the three sects and himself was coming to an end.
Victory was almost fully decided.
In the outside world, above the mountains:
“My Lords, the third time of opening the spatial hole has resulted in failure.”
Grandmaster Yin Kong sighed helplessly, but he wasn’t surprised. It was extremely difficult to open it a third time and he had expected failure.
At this moment in time, everyone was dead-silent. The three Void God Realms were motionless, and the Sovereigns didn’t dare to make any noise.
“Grandmaster Yin Kong, is there no hope at all?”
The Saint Aunt Moon Goddess broke the silence.
“As long as the Purple Saint Partial Spirit doesn’t die, the hopes of creating a spatial hole during the next two or three years is extremely low. Of course, we can still manage to send in one more person this time, but the chance of death exceeds 99%.”
Grandmaster Yin Kong said grimly.
Over 99% chance of dying?
The people present shook their heads.
“Are there any methods to lower that chance?”
The Saint Moon Aunt Goddess didn’t give up. If they were able to send in even just one more person, they could turn the tide.
She couldn’t just not care about Lu Tianyi, Ye Yanyu, and company.
Ye Yanyu was even her personal disciple.
“If there’s someone who’s talented in the Laws of Space who’s also prepared to pay a heavy price, they have a 60-70% chance of entering the Purple Saint Ruins.”
Grandmaster Yin Kong smiled faintly.
Specialized in spatial laws?
Everyone on the mountain looked at each other. There was no suitable candidate.
The group’s gaze soon landed on Grandmaster Yin Kong, and the eyes of the three Void God Realms lit up.
Grandmaster Yin Kong had a spatial eye-bloodline and, being one of the four Array Grandmasters, was a Sovereign himself.
No one doubted his strength and expertise.
Grandmaster Yin Kong remained calm in front of all their gazes.
“Grandmaster Yin Kong, what’s your requirement?”
The Saint Moon Aunt Goddess asked.
“I only have one requirement – give Zhao Feng to me afterwards.”
