Chapter 741 – Pursuit of Death (4)
Zhao Feng stood motionless as his hair blew in a weird rhythm. The clouds above him summoned lightning that descended onto the earth, and his purple Soul Sea became pure and whole. His mental energy seemed to merge with Heaven and Earth, and its laws became far clearer.
This was the peak Void God Realm level of a soul, where the soul reached completion. If the soul of a normal King was a rock, then the soul of an Emperor was a crystal. Although the quantity of the soul didn’t have much difference, there was a large difference in quality.
At this moment in time, the appearance of a new Emperor Intent caused the majority of the dark clouds above the Sky Sacred Qin Palace to fade away.
“Emperor Intent…!” the Palace Master, Li Xueyi, and company gazed at Zhao Feng with joyful and respectful eyes.
This meant that Zhao Feng would have no bottleneck in becoming an Emperor. Within a maximum of ten years, Zhao Feng would become a new Emperor of the Cang Ocean.
One had to know that the Cang Ocean hadn’t had a new Emperor in the last several hundred years. The birth of an Emperor could greatly change the situation anywhere.
“As I thought, I couldn’t stop him….” the Emperor of Death’s calm face finally showed some solemnness.
“Emperor of Death… who knows who shall die at whose hands!?” Zhao Feng’s eyes were filled with confidence and battle-intent.
As soon as he finished speaking, he reached out with one hand and covered the sky with a flaming mist that glittered with gold.
A burning claw of Wind Lightning seemed to cover the sky as it smashed toward the Emperor of Death.
The Emperor of Death snickered coldly as the Death Forcefield around him started to twist and turn, sending a wave of Death forward that turned everything in its path into dust.
The nearby mountains seemed to evaporate into thin air.
The burning Wind Lightning Claw started to weaken as it met the wave of Death. It only had 40% of its strength remaining by the time it got close to the Emperor of Death.
The Emperor of Death unleashed his Intent, and a sticky dark dimension of Death appeared.
Zhao Feng’s Imperial Power was instantly engulfed.
“This is the Domain of Death, and it can even be called a small Little World!” the child Demigod exclaimed.
Zhao Feng also felt the unparalleled force of a Little World. It was many times stronger than normal spatial domains.
“Scarlet Destruction Exploding Fist!”
Zhao Feng was now on an entirely new level, and his three domains clashed head-on with the Emperor of Death’s Little World.
Having Emperor Intent allowed Zhao Feng’s Scarlet Destruction Wind Lightning to become much stronger, and it also allowed his three spatial dimensions to become more corporeal. The three domains representing his soul, bloodline, and technique all gathered together into the golden punch and released amidst a storm of ice and illusions.
The child Demigod radiated a golden light and seemed to become a buddha as he used his Heaven Sealing Eighteen Palms to suppress the Emperor of Death.
The combined forces of the two reached an entirely new level that could even push back normal Emperors.
Boom! Boom! Bam!
The Emperor of Death pointed with his finger, and a whirlpool started to form from the power of his Little World of Death. It was like an abyss that was able to engulf any and every power. The attacks of the child Demigod and Zhao Feng behaved as if they were stones sinking into the ocean.
With a weird Shuuu~~~! sound, the Emperor of Death’s simple pointing with his finger caused the space to tremble slightly as the power of his Little World of Death thundered toward Zhao Feng and the child Demigod. Zhao Feng and the child Demigod were suppressed by the force, and a coldness started to spread across their bodies.
The two hiccupped coldly as they felt a terrifying suction force coming from the Little World of Death. All lifeforce and essences were being engulfed and devoured. Zhao Feng and the child Demigod both felt as if they were losing their life.
“Arghhh!” many members of the Sky Sacred Qin Palace inside the protective array turned into piles of white bones.
Lightning Wings Flying Technique!
A pair of wings formed behind Zhao Feng’s back. One could see the outline of a bone structure there, as if it was a pair of wings from an ancient bird of Lightning.
Zhao Feng took the child Demigod and instantly flashed away several hundred yards in the blink of an eye. If it weren’t for the fact that Zhao Feng had formed Emperor Intent, he wouldn’t have been able to instantly fly so far while holding someone.
“Where do you think you’re going?” the Emperor of Death seemed to become the shadow of Death as he closed in on the two.
In the blink of an eye, the three had exited inland and reached the area outside.
Those from the Sky Sacred Qin Palace only saw two flashes of light that shot into the sky and disappeared. Only the Palace Master could use her Divine Sense to see the battle in the limitless ocean.
The scarlet-red-colored lightning was Zhao Feng and the child Demigod.
“The Emperor of Death is this fast?” Zhao Feng realized that the Emperor of Death was able to catch up to him easily.
One had to know that Zhao Feng was slightly faster than even some Void God Realm Emperors because the increase in his Intent allowed him to comprehend the core essence of the Wings of Wind and Lightning.
“Master, we can’t defeat the Emperor of Death as of right now,” the child Demigod said solemnly.
Zhao Feng’s eyes twinkled, but he didn’t disagree. The Emperor of Death had easily suppressed the entire Sky Sacred Qin Palace right from the beginning. All his aspects had reached the limits of an Emperor.
At least at the moment, Zhao Feng wasn’t able to figure out a way to deal with the Emperor of Death’s Immortal Death Body. Just this fact alone meant that the Emperor of Death was undefeatable. On top of that, Zhao Feng and the child Demigod weren’t able to handle the Emperor of Death’s Death Forcefield or his Little World.
The Emperor of Death is extremely strong, and I will definitely lose if the fight drags out, Zhao Feng decided, and his wings fluttered even more quickly.
Under the orders of Zhao Feng, the child Demigod entered the ancient metal ring. What happened next was shocking.
“Lightning Wings Spatial Flash!”
The wings behind Zhao Feng glowed with a brilliant light as his speed reached the maximum, and he seemed to merge into space.
The Emperor of Death was only able to sense a faint bolt of lightning, and there was no sign of Zhao Feng within several thousand miles.
“Lightning Wings Spatial Flash? That’s the highest level of the Wind Lightning Inheritance….” the Emperor of Death was slightly dazed.
The technique Zhao Feng just used was the highest level of the Wings of Wind and Lightning – the Lightning Wings Spatial Flash. This technique merged the Lightning Wings Flying Technique with the Lightning Wings Wind Flash to release extreme speed.
In the blink of an eye, Zhao Feng appeared several thousand miles away. This speed was enough to leave most Emperors in dust. The Wind Lightning Emperor wasn’t called the fastest Emperor for nothing. Back then, he managed to escape even from Sacred Lords.
“My speed in the limitless ocean is more than ten times faster than inland. Several thousand miles isn’t good enough,” Zhao Feng wasn’t very satisfied. This meant that he would only be able to flash several hundred miles if he was inland, whereas the Wind Lightning Emperor could easily flash more than a thousand miles even inland.
As expected, such speed wasn’t enough to throw off the Emperor of Death.
“Death Instant Shadow!”
The Emperor of Death turned into a dark streak of light as he used a powerful spatial technique too.
As the Emperor of Death got closer:
“Lightning Wings Spatial Flash!”
The wings behind Zhao Feng released another brilliant glow of light and merged into the air. This time, he traveled a thousand miles further than before.
After obtaining Emperor Intent, Zhao Feng’s understanding of Space reached an entirely new level, so he was able to use the Lightning Wings Spatial Flash as he pleased. Extreme speed plus absolute Intent created the glory of the fastest Emperor.
Half the time it took to make tea later, Zhao Feng became more familiar with the Lightning Wings Spatial Flash and was able to minimize the amount of energy he used while also becoming faster. By the end, Zhao Feng could flash seven or eight thousand miles at once.
Of course, there was still a difference between him and the Wind Lightning Emperor, but Zhao Feng’s Lightning Wings Spatial Flash made him one of the fastest people below the Sacred Lord level.
An hour later, the distance between Zhao Feng and the Emperor of Death began to steadily grow bigger.
“Lightning Wings Spatial Flash… the highest level of flying that the fastest Emperor had back then,” the Emperor of Death’s eyebrows furrowed together, and he felt somewhat helpless. He had heard of the Wind Lightning Emperor before – this Emperor had once escaped from even Sacred Lords.
Eventually, the Emperor of Death’s Divine Sense lost track of Zhao Feng, and he could only follow him from the remaining aura left behind. Luckily for him, Zhao Feng was unable to recreate the aura of the Lightning Wings Spatial Flash, so he couldn’t create any diversions.
The Lightning Wings Spatial Flash condensed a lot of Wind Lightning and would create a large disturbance in space. Zhao Feng felt helpless about this as well. He needed to increase the distance between them first if he wanted to recreate his Lightning Wings Wind Flash to trick the Emperor of Death. The problem was that Zhao Feng’s speed wasn’t exactly overwhelming – he was only slightly faster than the Emperor of Death, and the Emperor of Death had a large amount of True Yuan, allowing him to use the Death Instant Shadow several times.
Over the limitless ocean, the two extreme speeds and auras made the experts passing by feel cold and become unable to breathe.
Five or six days later, Zhao Feng finally managed to escape from the Emperor of Death and enter a new island zone.
An arc of lightning fell down from the sky like a meteor and landed on an island similar to the Azure Flower Continent.
Zhao Feng took a deep breath. His face was white, and he was slightly staggering. He quickly sat down, took out a fruit from the Ancient Dream Realm, and ate it.
