Chapter 813 – Defeating the Enemy
The layer of silver-purple light flew faster and faster toward the rising valleys in the distance.
After breaking past the youthful King from Grand Duke Yuan’s Palace, no one else nearby was able to stop Zhao Feng and Nan Gongsheng at all. Not many of the chasing Kings were as fast as Nan Gongsheng.
“They’re too fast…!”
The Kings from the Shi and Dong Families chased for a while before watching the layer of silver-and-purple light fly further and further away.
The difficulty of making a King who was talented in the laws of Space stay behind was several times more difficult than any other type of King.
“How did our ambush fail!?” a deep, angry roar sounded from the other side of the forest.
A tall bald male with black battle robes flew across the air and radiated a strong Demonic Dao aura. This newcomer was Jiu Wuji from the Nine Darkness Palace.
The Thirteenth Prince and the wrinkled elder soon arrived as well.
“They sensed our ambush at the last critical moment….” the wrinkled elder sighed.
Their group had many people of every talent, including trackers. After several days of analysis and searching, the forces had confirmed where Zhao Feng and Nan Gongsheng were and tried to surround them, but they actually sensed it at the last moment.
Elsewhere, in the clouds above a valley.
“Nan Gongsheng, that ability of your nose ring isn’t bad.” Zhao Feng was surprised.
In the beginning, Zhao Feng wasn’t very interested in the nose ring because it didn’t fit his appearance.
Nan Gongsheng’s nose ring gave him a super sense of smell, which could be used to track treasures as well as people. The nose ring could even block poison.
It was because of this nose ring that Nan Gongsheng was able to smell the pursuers. With the addition of Zhao Feng’s God’s Spiritual Eye, they were able to find the best route to escape.
This was the same as giving Nan Gongsheng a supportive bloodline ability.
Of course, the nose ring wasn’t very useful to Zhao Feng because the supportive ability of his God’s Spiritual Eye was even stronger. The only difference was that one was sight-based and the other was smell-based.
“Where do you think you’re going you thieves~~~!?” A surge of demonic Magnificent Power appeared in the valley behind them, and the duo’s hearts both shook.
A bald male with a pair of black flaming demonic wings charged over.
What speed! Solemnness appeared on Zhao Feng’s and Nan Gongsheng’s faces.
This Jiu Wuji was indeed worthy of being an elite King. He was very strong, and his secret techniques were powerful.
At the moment, Jiu Wuji had the advantage in speed, and he was catching up to Zhao Feng and Nan Gongsheng.
“Baldy, you think that you’ll be able to keep us back by yourself?” Nan Gongsheng snickered coldly.
Indeed, only Jiu Wuji could catch up. The wrinkled elder next to the Thirteenth Prince could probably catch up too, but his mission was to protect the prince.
“Let’s find out!” Jiu Wuji licked his lips as a gruesome expression covered his face. Although he was an older elite, his true strength could be ranked within the top thirty of the Great Gan Imperial Genius rankings or even higher.
The wings behind Jiu Wuji’s back summoned a storm of black flames that caused the sky nearby to darken. This demonic force contained the power of a Demonic Dao spatial domain, which clashed against Zhao Feng and Nan Gongsheng.
Zhao Feng’s and Nan Gongsheng’s bodies shook, and the spatial domain they were inside of started to shake and become unstable. At the same time, a thick black aura tried to erode and squeeze Nan Gongsheng’s spatial domain.
Zhao Feng and Nan Gongsheng retreated as a great pressure bore down from every direction.
Although Nan Gongsheng was a rare prodigy that had a Heaven Spiritual Body and a Spatial Spiritual Body, it hadn’t been long since he had formed his spatial domain. On the other hand, Jiu Wuji had a solid foundation, and he had reached a high level of mastery in his skills. The strength of his spatial domain wasn’t weaker than Peak-tier Kings.
“Hand of the Demonic Sky!” Jiu Wuji roared as one of his arms started to expand and burn, turning into a black hand that seemed to reach the sky.
The large Hand of the Demonic Sky summoned black flaming clouds that caused Heaven and Earth to shake. His battle-power had reached the Peak-tier King level.
Although Zhao Feng and Nan Gongsheng attacked together, they were still sent flying by the Hand of the Demonic Sky into the mountains below.
Jiu Wuji had the advantage in terms of spatial domain. His mastery and skill level had all reached the level of a Peak-tier King.
As of right now, Zhao Feng was just support.
“Hahaha… you two thieves, I alone am enough to kill both of you!” Jiu Wuji let out a long roar as he charged.
In reality, Jiu Wuji had the possibility of breaking through to a Peak-tier King ten years ago, but he wanted to increase the chances of him successfully entering the Divine Illusion Dimension, so he limited his cultivation to a Domain-level King. This was because Peak-tier Kings had a very low chance of being able to enter the Divine Illusion Dimension; even four-star powers weren’t confident in being able to send them through.
“Let’s see how long your secret technique can last.” Nan Gongsheng landed on the ground, and the purple crescent moon on his forehead started to blink as his purple hair blew in the wind.
On the ground, Zhao Feng and Nan Gongsheng – the purple-haired duo – looked at each other.
“Go!” The two attacked at the same time.
“Sacred Lightning Body!” Zhao Feng’s bones started to crack as he grew taller, and a metallic blue-silver symbol glittered around his body.
An arc of lightning-imbued physical force rushed toward Jiu Wuji in the air.
With the strengthening of his Sacred Lightning Body, Zhao Feng’s physical force could fight against a King for a short amount of time.
However, that was just the basic level of his strength.
“Wings of Wind and Lightning!” A pair of Water of Wind Lightning wings summoned a storm, and the Intent radiating from it was incredibly strong.
His move still wasn’t done yet.
“Open!” A bright red flame burned around Zhao Feng’s body, making him look like a flaming demonic sovereign.
After the double power-up, Zhao Feng’s attacks had reached the threshold of a King, even surpassing normal Kings.
There was still one last step.
The green shoes on Zhao Feng’s feet spat out a green flame that suddenly increased his speed.
With the addition of this speed, Zhao Feng’s explosive power reached a terrifying stage.
Jiu Wuji only saw a blur as a flaming figure with lightning wings and an indescribable Magnificent Power thundered toward him.
Peng! Boom~~~~! Boom~~~~!
The force of Zhao Feng’s punch instantly appeared in front of Jiu Wuji.
“How is this possible!?” Jiu Wuji’s body became heavy as he swayed in disbelief. The attacks of this youth had passed straight through his spatial domain and the forcefield around him.
“Break!” With a flash of silver, Nan Gongsheng used his spatial techniques, and a ripple of silver-purple that could crush everything into dust shot out from his palm. On top of that, this attack contained the power of the Evil God Crystal.
Boom! Boom! Bam! Bam!
At this instant, Jiu Wuji faced the frenzied counterattacks of Zhao Feng and Nan Gongsheng.
“Demonic Sky Force Field!” Jiu Wuji stood proudly in the sky as the air around him started to twist, and space itself seemed to crumble. This powerful forcefield tried to absorb and redirect the attacks.
Hand of the Demonic Sky! Jiu Wuji waved the black hand, and the black flaming clouds crushed toward Zhao Feng and Nan Gongsheng once more.
Nan Gongsheng’s spatial domain trembled again, and Zhao Feng’s Sacred Body started to hurt under the crushing of the hand.
“Hehe, what can one momentary explosive attack do?” Jiu Wuji snickered coldly.
He guessed that Zhao Feng was most likely a revived King or Emperor. Stealing another body and re-cultivating wasn’t very rare for Void God Realms.
As long as Jiu Wuji could survive the momentary explosive attack, he would be able to counterattack.
Right as Zhao Feng and Nan Gongsheng were at a disadvantage once more and being forced toward the ground by the Hand of the Demonic Sky:
The Thirteenth Prince and the wrinkled elder flew toward them.
“This is the last moment! Let’s see where you can run to~~~!” Smugness appeared in Jiu Wuji’s eyes. As long as reinforcements arrived, Zhao Feng and Nan Gongsheng would be unable to escape.
“The last blow!” Zhao Feng and Nan Gongsheng looked at each other, then charged toward Jiu Wuji with utmost power.
“Laughable.” Mockery appeared on Jiu Wuji’s face. Too huge of a difference in strength couldn’t be bridged by Intent or skill alone.
However, Jiu Wuji’s body suddenly froze.
Zhao Feng’s punch contained not only physical force; there was some kind of bloodline aura that created a weird mental energy.
“Illusion Maze Domain!”
Jiu Wuji’s senses were instantly weakened dramatically, and he suddenly lost 40-50% of control over his own power.
Boom! Boom! Boom~~~~!
Zhao Feng and Nan Gongsheng’s extreme attacks passed through the flaws that Jiu Wuji suddenly revealed in his Demonic Sky Force Field.
Jiu Wuji spat out a mouthful of blood and staggered as he struggled out of the Illusion Maze Domain.
Although Zhao Feng had taken over another body and needed to re-cultivate, he didn’t need to re-master his Soul Dao. Now that his soul-strength had recovered back to the level of a King, the strength of his Illusion Maze Domain already contained a portion of its strength when he was at his peak.
Before Jiu Wuji could react, a golden dragon figure that was dozens of yards long wrapped itself around him.
Jiu Wuji’s body tightened as a golden-gray whip surrounded him and sent sharp bursts into his body.
Zhao Feng’s and Nan Gongsheng’s attacks descended once more alongside a powerful Soul Dao domain.
“Arghhh!” Jiu Wuji screamed and struggled, and he barely managed to get out of the little thieving cat’s golden whip.
Peng! Bam! Bam!
Jiu Wuji fell from the air. Intense injuries were left behind on his body. Some of his flesh had even been burnt. It was extremely disgusting.
“Jiu Wuji lost…!” The Thirteenth Prince, the wrinkled elder, and everyone else who were arriving saw this and were stunned.
At the same moment in time, a stunning figure landed in the forest where Zhao Feng and Nan Gongsheng were moments ago.
“I’m late…. Nan Gongsheng, you’ve got to hold on…!”
