Chapter 708 – Gaze of Death
Wen Luoan and the Yin Yang Lord obviously weren’t so arrogant that they believed they could keep an Emperor behind, even if he was severely injured.
Emperor Mu Yun was full of anger and had nowhere to release it. He licked his lips and looked at the Wen Luoan, the Yin Yang Lord, and all the Death Guards on the ship with a cruel smile. He felt that there was a familiar feeling to them, as if he knew about them from somewhere.
“This person has traces of Zhao Feng. We must keep him behind,” Wen Luoan and the Yin Yang Lord looked at each other.
After being hit by Zhao Feng’s Void Space Eye Slash, there was a trace of the Intent of Death on Emperor Mu Yun due to the large amount of soul-power used.
The two exchanged glances and instantly knew what to do.
They both took out a unique Token of Death at the same time. The tokens were as black as ink, and an ancient character of Death was written on it. Both released an aura of Death that went straight to the soul.
Emperor Mu Yun felt his soul go cold, and he became uneasy. An Intent of Death radiated from the tokens and locked on to Emperor Mu Yun.
“Those tokens, could it be…?” Emperor Mu Yun seemed to think of something, and his expression changed dramatically.
The next instant, a shocking scene appeared.
A pitch-black eye appeared from the center of the two tokens and sparkled with a white light, as if connecting to the world of Death.
“Eye of Death!” Emperor Mu Yun exclaimed; what he thought was correct.
At this moment, the power of the Eye of Death poured out of Wen Luoan’s and the Yin Yang Lord’s Tokens of Death, and it was dozens of times stronger than when it was in the Purple Saint Ruins. This was due to the difference in quality; last time the Eye of Death appeared, it came from the Token of Death itself since Death Intent could be stored in it and release, whereas this time, Wen Luoan and the Yin Yang Lord used it as a direct connection to the Emperor of Death’s Eye of Death.
Emperor Mu Yun felt his heart tremble, as if he couldn’t control his own life. However, being a Void God Realm Emperor, he didn’t retreat. On paper, the Emperor of Death had the same cultivation as him, but the latter was an ancient Emperor as well as the descendant of the God Eye of Death.
“Hmph! Emperor of Death, I might be wary of you if you came personally, but it’s only your Eye of Death travelling across space,” Emperor Mu Yun laughed coldly, and his soul almost started to burn as it formed a powerful Intent.
Wen Luoan and the Yin Yang Lord both felt unable to breathe, and their souls started to tremble, but luckily the Tokens of Death in their hands gave them confidence and a type of protection.
The two Tokens of Death suddenly shattered, and a pair of Eyes of Death appeared in the air. The eyes were dark like an abyss, and they were similar to Zhao Feng’s Eye of Heaven.
“Gaze of Death!”
A voice sounded in the soul-dimension, and the Eyes of Death quietly looked at Emperor Mu Yun as if they were part of the Heavenly Dao.
“What…!?” Emperor Mu Yun felt his soul become restricted, and he was no longer able to control it. His lifeforce was frozen, and he was unable to move.
In the air above, the pair of Eyes of Death started to spin.
“Impossible!” Emperor Mu Yun roared as he struggled. However, after the fight not long ago, his Little World was broken and he was injured, leaving him with only 50-60% of his strength remaining.
He tried to fight back, but he simply didn’t have the ability to do so. The spiritual form of the struggling Emperor Mu Yun was slowly pulled out of his body. This was Emperor Mu Yun’s soul.
Emperor Mu Yun’s soul was sucked into a black whirlpool by the Eyes of Death.
“Gaze of Death! This is Master’s famed technique – a clash between souls. The weaker soul will be taken away,” respect appeared in Wen Luoan’s eyes.
The Gaze of Death was considered a forbidden eye-bloodline technique, as well as the representative technique of the God of Death. This was because the owner of the God Eye of Death was the God of Death, but only one person could have the actual God Eye of Death, and they had never appeared in the Cang Ocean before.
In the air, the large Eyes of Death paused for a breath or two before fading away.
“Using the Gaze of Death over several island zones, and the target is an Emperor… the price needed to pay for that…” the Yin Yang Lord’s eyebrows locked together.
A while later:
A token used for messages appeared in Wen Luoan’s hand.
“Zhao Feng’s at the Eighteen Corners Canyon where the Pirate Emperor Inheritance Sacred Land is….” a weak voice came from the token.
Eighteen Corners Canyon? Pirate Emperor’s Inheritance? the eyes of Wen Luoan and the Yin Yang Lord lit up. It looked like the Emperor of Death found the tracks of Zhao Feng after taking away Emperor Mu Yun’s soul, but he had paid a price to do so.
Two special Tokens of Death were used to connect this location to the Eye of Death, but since the distance was extremely far away and the target was also an Emperor, the energy expended was huge. Furthermore, the Emperor of Death still needed to search Emperor Mu Yun’s soul afterward.
“Master’s used a lot of energy and will probably need to rest for a month. You guys go keep an eye on the target….” the Emperor of Death’s voice sounded.
Wen Luoan and the Yin Yang Lord looked at each other with puzzlement. Why did the Emperor of Death want to kill Zhao Feng so badly and leave a whole corpse? The Emperor of Death had paid a heavy price and a huge amount of time and effort to chase Zhao Feng. Was it all worth it?
Back in the Eighteen Corners Canyon, in the middle of the Pirate Sacred Land, all of the Pirate Kings were injured to different degrees after the fight, and their gazes toward Zhao Feng were different from before. No one doubted that Zhao Feng had the ability to fight the Giant Shark King and the Cold Moon King for the throne of Pirate Emperor. Even the child Demigod admired Zhao Feng.
Shua! Shua! Shua!
More than ten Pirate King Tokens floated in the air above the ocean. According to the rules of the Pirate Emperor Inheritance, one could open the Pirate Emperor’s Inheritance after gathering nine Pirate King Tokens, but now they had surpassed that number by far.
One of the Pirate King Tokens was connected to Zhao Feng’s ghost ship. Each Pirate King Token was connected to a pirate ship, and since the ghost ship was originally a pirate ship, it was recognized by the Pirate King Token. Being the captain of the ship, Zhao Feng was one of the Pirate Kings.
A loud clap sounded in the ocean, and a trembling sensation came from the Eighteen Corners Canyon, from within the Pirate Sacred Land. Even those at the Void God Realm felt infinitely small in front of this enormous power.
“What a setup! Is this really the inheritance of just an Emperor?” Zhao Feng’s senses were extremely strong.
The little thieving cat had also appeared on his shoulder, and its eyes started to twinkle.
“The Pirate Emperor’s Inheritance is indeed not simple,” the child Demigod started to think.
The trembling sensation lasted for an entire eighteen breaths. At the same moment, a dark green light shot into the sky from the eighteen canyons, and it seemed to have the ability to turn Heaven and Earth around. Of course, no one could see it unless they looked down from above.
“The inheritance has appeared!” someone exclaimed.
Boom! Boom! Boom!
An enormous whirlpool formed in the center of the ocean, and inside was a wisp of dark green light, as well as an ancient aura that seemed like the other side of a distant shore.
“What terrifying strength! Is this the entrance to the Pirate Emperor’s Inheritance?” the child Demigod squinted.
The enormous and mysterious whirlpool seemed to have an everlasting Intent.
“This entrance… even Emperors would be ripped into shreds,” Zhao Feng clicked his tongue. Furthermore, the dark green light gave Zhao Feng a familiar feeling. It was similar to an aura in his memories, but slightly different.
“Let’s go!” the Cold Moon King and the Giant Shark King led their warships and charged into the whirlpool. Profoundly, their warships were protected by a mysterious power and were not injured by the terrifying power of the whirlpool.
“Interesting,” Zhao Feng could see that this was due to the aura of the Pirate King Token inside their ships.
The ghost ship also had such an aura, and it became more obvious as they got closer to the whirlpool.
This was the entire setup of the Pirate Sacred Land. Zhao Feng became more curious; the Pirate Emperor was really able to plan this all by himself?
The ghost ship followed the other pirate ships and entered the center of the whirlpool. Only the ships that had been recognized and had participated in the opening could enter.
Shua! Shua! Shua!
At the same time, the other Pirate King Tokens from across the Pirate Sacred Land were pulled into the whirlpool. Every time the Pirate Emperor’s Inheritance opened, the eighteen Pirate King Tokens would be redistributed.
Zhao Feng let out a breath. It looked like the Cold Moon King hadn’t tricked him. This meant that the ghost ship was now free and no longer restricted by the Pirate Emperor Sacred Land.
The little thieving cat, the child Demigod, and the skeletal Division Leader weren’t affected when the ghost ship entered the whirlpool. They were on the ship and automatically assumed to be pirates.
Only twelve ships were able to enter the whirlpool. No matter how strong the other ships were, they were ripped into shreds by the whirlpool. Even Void God Realm Emperors wouldn’t be able to forcefully enter. Even if they could, without the heart of a pirate, they wouldn’t be able to obtain anything.
This was an inheritance limited to Pirates!
The whirlpool became the center of power in the Eighteen Corners Canyon. Who knows how much time passed?
A cold metallic ship of Death sailed through the ocean and arrived next to the whirlpool.
