Chapter 599 – My Reinforcement
The Blue Lightning Sea Sky Ship flew with all its speed and sped away from the battlefield.
The black-armored Sovereign Lord laughed as he chased them.
Currently, only Zhao Feng and Li Yunya were left to defend the ship.
“Why didn’t you run away earlier?”
Zhao Feng was still calm in the face of being pursued by a Great Origin Core Realm.
“Run? I couldn’t have, nor did I want to.”
Li Yunya shook his head.
Zhao Feng couldn’t help but be curious. He had detected that the other two Sovereigns were killed, but his mental energy was much stronger than Li Yunya.
“If it weren’t for Captain Zhao, I would have died as cannon fodder on the battlefield. No cannon fodder has ever escaped from the overseer of the Six Ring Palace death squads before.”
Li Yunya said bitterly.
The image of the black-skinned elder’s cold expression appeared in Zhao Feng’s mind.
Zhao Feng understood. The overseer was the black-skinned elder who would kill anyone that ran.
“Brat, how dare you not give me your full attention when I’m chasing you?”
The Sovereign Lord behind them roared and slashed his halberd multiple times, filling the area with killing intent and danger.
Ding! Ding! Boom~~~~
The smoke from the Ghost Corpse Cursed Array was sliced into different bits and was about to fade away.
A mark was also left on the surface of the Blue Lightning Sea Sky Ship.
Li Yunya staggered and spat out a mouthful of blood as his face went white.
Zhao Feng’s blood boiled, but a ripple of water appeared around him, which allowed him to stay unharmed.
“Even if the overseer doesn’t come, we still won’t be able to survive.”
Helplessness appeared in Li Yunyua’s eyes. Thinking back, he was once a genius of the Six Ring Palace who broke through to the Origin Core Realm when he was only thirty years old, and he reached the late-stage Small Origin Core Realm when he was fifty.
“This feeling of danger…!”
Zhao Feng’s heart suddenly jumped as he glanced toward the direction of the ocean.
Peng! Peng! Peng! Peng!
The feeling of danger was ten times stronger, and it was only getting more intense.
The Pursuit of Death had finally arrived.
Zhao Feng sighed. Most of his attention was now put toward the ocean.
“Hahaha. Brat, you seem to know that you will die either way. You should be happy that you were able to play with me before your death.”
The black-armored Sovereign Lord laughed as his Great Origin Core Realm aura enveloped the Blue Lightning Sea Sky Ship.
Li Yunya was filled with despair, but he looked over and saw that the youth next to him was much calmer.
“Your hair and eye…”
Li Yunya suddenly realized something.
With a gentle gust of wind, Zhao Feng’s hair turned blue, and his left eye seemed to become a bottomless lake.
At this instant, Zhao Feng’s left eye was able to see a tall figure of Death approaching inland. It would arrive within thirty breaths.
The Pursuit of Death. The intent from the Eye of Death in his soul twitched.
“Eye-bloodline? How futile…. Die!”
The Sovereign Lord mocked as he slashed forward with his halberd, which was aimed at both Zhao Feng and Li Yunya.
Set the array!
A dark skeleton with gold and silver lines on it suddenly appeared next to Zhao Feng, and it gave off a cold aura.
“There’s another person?”
Although they were both at the late-stage Small Origin Core Realm, the skeleton’s aura was much more terrifying.
At the same instant:
Shua! Shua! Shua!
The number of cursed ghost-corpses reached one hundred.
A ghostly cloud appeared and radiated a shocking amount of curse-power, which turned into several cat paws. Each paw was a couple hundred yards big under the cat’s control, and they clashed toward the Sovereign Lord. Countless dried, bloody, white hands followed in pursuit.
“Ice Emperor Descending!”
Zhao Feng’s bloodline power was circulated to the maximum, and his Ice Imperial Spear glittered with a faint purplish aura of Destruction. Even more incredibly, there was a faint, magnificent image of an ancient Ice Emperor above Zhao Feng’s head.
“Zhe zhe zhe… take this palm!”
The skeletal Division Leader turned into a flaming bone giant and thrusted its palm, which contained flames of Death and Yin, toward the Sovereign Lord.
A hundred cursed ghost-corpses.
Ice Emperor Descending.
Flaming bone giant.
The three shocking powers clashed with the black-armored Sovereign Lord.
A shockwave instantly washed over more than a dozen miles and turned the ground to nothing.
No grass would grow on the ground below for the next several hundred years, and it would turn into a cursed land.
The Sovereign Lord groaned as he was sent flying and coughed out a mouthful of blood.
“Why is it like this…!?”
The Sovereign Lord’s face turned white, and he exclaimed in disbelief.
The array and the skeleton that appeared out of nowhere could both threaten those at the Great Origin Core Realm. Even Zhao Feng’s Ice Imperial Spear managed to channel the power of the ancient Ice Emperor.
The sudden counterattack injured the black-armored Sovereign Lord.
“So strong! What is the background of this youth and everyone on board?”
Li Yunya was filled with disbelief.
As the Sovereign Lord was deciding whether to retreat or attack:
“It’s getting close….”
Zhao Feng’s left eye once again looked toward the direction of the ocean as he murmured to himself with uneasiness.
“Master, another Sovereign Lord seems to have arrived.”
The skeletal Division Leader sensed something.
The newcomer was the black-skinned elder; the overseer of the death squads.
“We need to finish one off quickly or it’ll become troublesome.”
The skeletal Division Leader’s face was solemn.
Zhao Feng nodded his head faintly as he locked on to the black-armored Sovereign Lord with his left eye.
Eye-bloodline? What a terrifying eye-bloodline aura.
Li Yunya, who was standing nearby, felt his soul become uneasy.
“Void Space Eye Slash!”
Zhao Feng’s eye-bloodline technique shot out.
With a splatter of blood, the black-armored Sovereign Lord’s body stiffened, and he revealed a look of panic and fear.
The Sovereign Lord tried to say something and instinctively looked down.
Li Yunya took in a deep breath and his hairs stood up. Waves roared in his heart as he looked toward the young captain with shock.
At this instant in time, everyone inside and outside the ship was dead-silent.
“Zhao Feng’s Void Space Eye Slash is even stronger than before.”
The skeletal Division Leader’s face was filled with solemnness.
The black-armored Sovereign Lord’s body fell from the sky.
Li Yunya let out a breath, but he was unable to calm down.
A youth merely looked at a Great Origin Core Realm Sovereign Lord to kill him.
The little thieving cat laughed and waved the array flag, sending black smoke to devour the body of the black-armored Sovereign Lord.
Zhao Feng waved his hand and took the spoils of war.
The sound of flying appeared as the black-skinned elder arrived.
The black-skinned elder looked around and was surprised that the black-armored Sovereign Lord wasn’t here.
He felt the Sovereign’s aura while chasing them, but now it was gone.
“You killed him?”
The black-skinned elder scanned around with his Spiritual Sense and saw the body of the black-armored Sovereign Lord rotting into a pile of blood and water inside the array.
This scene instantly made him on guard.
“Zhe zhe zhe…. Old man, it’s your turn now.”
The skeletal Division Leader laughed and charged toward him as flames rose from its body.
“Ice Emperor Descending!”
The faint image of an Ice Emperor appeared above his head, and the Ice Imperial Spear released a brilliant glow of light as it created a tornado of ice and lightning.
The little thieving cat waved the array flag, and the power of the Ghost Corpse Cursed Array’s curse attacked the black-skinned elder from both sides, complementing Zhao Feng and the skeletal Division Leader.
This time, the power of the combination was even stronger than before.
“Scarlet Cloud Hand!”
The black-skinned elder’s expression became solemn, and the sky was dyed scarlet-red as a large, shining hand formed.
The Scarlet Cloud Hand brought the power of fire down with it, causing the world to rage with flames.
The two forces clashed for a couple breaths.
The Blue Lightning Sea Sky Ship was pushed back hundreds of yards into a mountain. The smoke around the ship instantly faded by more than half.
A bone or two in the skeletal Division Leader’s body broke.
Zhao Feng spat out a mouthful of blood, but his injuries started to heal from the ripple of water.
“What mastery in the element of fire.”
Zhao Feng and the skeletal Division Leader were stunned. Not only had the black-skinned elder reached the late-stage Great Origin Core Realm, he even had a fire bloodline and a special inheritance technique.
“The strength of the overseer can be ranked within the top five Great Origin Core Realm Sovereign Lords in the Six Ring Palace, and he has received a powerful fire inheritance.”
Li Yunya warned through Spiritual Sense.
The black-skinned elder’s figure flashed as he retreated several hundred yards. His eyebrows furrowed. Although he wasn’t injured just now, he felt as if there was something on his body that made him feel uncomfortable.
“The future generation sure is talented. A measly half-step Origin Core Realm and a Sovereign can block 70% of my strength.”
The black-skinned elder sighed.
Zhao Feng felt weird. Why was this old man pretending to be all high and mighty?
However, Zhao Feng didn’t have any time left to consider that anymore; a strong surge of Death was approaching, and it sensed the intent of the Eye of Death in his soul.
Right at that moment:
A dark beam of light created sparks as it sped past the barrier and headed toward Zhao Feng’s direction.
“Representing the intent of Death… I am here.”
A voice sounded in Zhao Feng’s mind.
Hmm? Who’s there?
The black-skinned elder and company all sensed something. Li Yunya and the sailors all felt the aura of Death, and it made them unable to breathe.
“Unfortunately, my reinforcement has arrived. Expert from the Six Ring Palace, your life ends here.”
Zhao Feng sighed and said.
