Chapter 840 – Baffling
Zhao Feng and the newly-advanced Nan Gongsheng consolidated their foundations for another half a day before venturing toward the depths of Xie Yang Palace.
Because they used three days to break through, they might be a bit behind the other geniuses and elites.
A layer of powerful silver and purple covered the duo as they moved through the air with stunning speed.
The duo encountered many temptations along the way. Many normal things within the God’s palace were rare in the outside world. Some items were things that they could only dream of.
Zhao Feng and Nan Gongsheng didn’t dare to stay for any of the normal treasures though. The duo would only take the most valuable treasures.
Half a day later, the duo entered the depths of Xie Yang Palace. A large group of magnificent buildings came into sight. They were connected by walkways or bridges, and most of them were darkly colored. Dark purple and dark red made up the majority. At the very center of these buildings was a purple crystal tower that shot up into the sky; it was formed from countless purple jade stones.
A tremendous pressure could be felt from the purple crystal tower even from far away. The True Yuan of some of the outsiders nearby started to tremble. They didn’t dare to resist against the purple crystal tower or else the pressure would increase.
A handsome male in armor spat out a mouthful of blood as his face turned white.
“Young Sir Qi, don’t resist the force of the purple crystal tower!” a bearded elder nearby exclaimed.
The handsome male in armor and the elder had both reached the Void God Realm. The former was a Domain-level King. This group came from Grand Duke Qi’s Palace, which was located in one of the eighteen provinces of the Great Gan Lord Dynasty.
“That purple crystal tower is probably related to the core of Xie Yang Palace. Each of the purple crystal stones that make it up are at least comparable to a substandard God Crystal.” The bearded was stunned.
This elder was a half-step King from Grand Duke Qi’s Palace, but after entering the Divine Illusion Dimension, and Xie Yang Palace in particular, he finally managed to break through to the Void God Realm.
Most of the elites that entered the Divine Illusion Dimension had made a breakthrough of some sort. After all, those that could enter were elites of the older generation and peerless geniuses of the younger generation.
“We’re already behind Sky Suspension Palace and the imperials.”
Young Sir Qi drank a drop of precious liquid that he had obtained in Xie Yang Palace, and his injuries started to quickly heal. His skin even became smoother than before.
The elites of Grand Duke Qi’s Palace reorganized themselves before carefully scouting further.
All of the forces in Xie Yang Palace had met some kind of danger. Although these dangers were probably very normal for Xie Yang Palace, they were very deadly for the outsiders. For example, the poisonous tip of a plant or a random dirty puddle of water in the ground could kill half-step Kings and even true Kings. Therefore, all of the forces were wary and cautious as they advanced.
Right at this moment, two figures covered in purple and silver light reached the depths of the palace.
“Purple-Haired Demonic Duo!” Those from Grand Duke Qi’s Palace roared as they revealed looks of hatred and panic.
Killing intent instantly appeared on Young Sir Qi’s and the bearded elder’s faces as they radiated Magnificent Power and charged over.
“Thieves, where do you think you’re going~~~~!?” the armor-clad Young Sir Qi roared as he took the lead with hatred and anger.
With a flash of silver and purple, Zhao Feng and Nan Gongsheng landed on a pavilion with puzzled expressions.
“Purple-Haired Demonic Duo, you plundered and ambushed Grand Duke Qi’s Palace and killed two of our disciples! How will you pay for that?” the bearded elder said in a deep tone.
“Plunder? Ambush?” Zhao Feng and Nan Gongsheng looked at each other in confusion.
Although they had stolen from many forces, they didn’t recall plundering from Grand Duke Qi’s Palace, and after entering Xie Yang Palace, Zhao Feng and Nan Gongsheng hadn’t stolen anything from anyone. No matter how strong they were, they didn’t want to offend every single force here.
At this moment, the male in armor and the bearded elder charged over from two sides.
“Dazzling Sky Star!” The male in armor thrust out the spear he was holding, and stars seemed to explode in the sky. A bone-chilling aura filled the air.
This simple thrust contained a cold and heavy spatial power. In terms of strength, this Young Sir Qi in armor was close to Jiu Wuji. He had become a lot stronger in the Divine Illusion Dimension.
“Petty tricks!” A purple-haired youth in black clashed against Young Sir Qi with a bright flash of purple and silver. A nearly-materialized purple-and-silver spatial domain formed and released a wicked power that could change the expressions of even Emperors.
Bam! Bam! Bam!
The two figures and spatial dimensions clashed in the air.
“Not good!” Young Sir Qi exclaimed as his thrust was engulfed by a wicked power. Purple-and-silver spatial blade slashed over.
Weng~~ Ding! Ding! Ding!
Young Sir Qi was forced to retreat as the starry light around him faded in color. Scratches were also left behind on his armor. If it wasn’t for the almost-Heaven-grade armor protecting him, he would’ve lost a layer of skin, if he survived at all.
At the same time, the fight between Zhao Feng and the bearded elder came to an end as well.
“Fuck off!” Zhao Feng threw a simple punch and unleashed a brilliant golden-blue beam that glittered with arcs of lightning.
A heavy feeling filled the air, as if there was a large mountain descending.
“Arghh!” The bearded elder that only recently reached the Void God Realm screamed as his Magnificent Power was shattered, and he fell like a broken kite. His entire body was scorched black.
In just one punch, Zhao Feng severely injured the bearded elder with his Sacred Lightning Body alone.
The arriving half-step Kings from Grand Duke Qi’s Palace took in cold breaths as their faces went white.
In just one exchange, Young Sir Qi and the bearded elder were defeated. In particular, the Void God Realm bearded elder was injured by a Great Origin Core Realm purple-haired youth.
“Grand Duke Qi’s Palace, if you don’t give us a good explanation, don’t even think about leaving here alive,” Nan Gongsheng snickered coldly.
The duo was baffled by the actions of Grand Duke Qi’s Palace.
“Purple-Haired Demonic Duo, there’s a huge danger in front of us and we’re all on the same boat, but you two haven’t changed and are still attacking humans….” the bearded elder sat up from the ground and said in a sad tone.
“Attack? When did we attack?” Nan Gongsheng questioned.
Zhao Feng stood on the side with furrowed eyebrows as he started to think.
“Don’t try to trick us!”
“Two days ago, when we were trying to obtain the Sky Dew Water, you two ambushed us!”
“It was you two thieves! I’d be able to recognize you even if you turned into dust.”
Those from Grand Duke Qi’s Palace were enraged. They were all sure that the Purple-Haired Demonic Duo had attacked them.
“Hmph, Purple-Haired Demonic Duo, you didn’t just attack one or two forces.”
“We’ll get rid of you two once everyone arrives!”
These people were angry and full of hatred, but they didn’t dare attack.
Zhao Feng and Nan Gongsheng looked at each other and felt that something was wrong.
“Purple-Haired Demonic Duo, die~~~~!” Nearly ten figures appeared on a walkway not far away. The leaders were two Kings; one was a youth wearing black robes and another was a charming beauty with blue hair.
“It’s the Jiang Family!”
“It’s Jiang Chen and the number one beauty of the Jiang Family, Jiang Feixue!”
Those from Grand Duke Qi’s Palace revealed joyful expressions.
Zhao Feng and Nan Gongsheng had fought with the Jiang Family before, so it could be said that they were familiar with each another. However, the number one beauty that Zhao Feng had stolen from was now a King.
When their original plan failed, the Jiang Family decided to give up on killing the Purple-Haired Demonic Duo. After all, everyone was threatened by the Black Destruction Serpent Destruction, so they were all on the same boat now.
“Purple-Haired Demonic Duo!” The blue-haired Jiang Feixue bit her lips. “You took my Water Mother Essence before, and you ambushed the Jiang Family after coming into Xie Yang Palace, killing and crippling two of them and stealing the Five Mystic Heavy Water we finally managed to obtain.”
“Zhao Feng, Nan Gongsheng, we’re going to get rid of you bastards before we deal with the danger of the Black Destruction Serpent Dragon.” Jiang Chen flew in from the other side and pincer attacked the duo.
Zhao Feng and Nan Gongsheng were still baffled. The two hadn’t caused any trouble after entering Xie Yang Palace. After all, everyone had been threatened by the Black Serpent Dragon, and Zhao Feng still knew the importance of the greater good.
“We’ll retreat for now.” Zhao Feng and Nan Gongsheng both sensed something.
The duo quickly retreated under a layer of silver and purple.
“Get back here!” Jiang Chen, Jiang Feixue, and the armored Young Sir Qi tried to stop them.
Bam! Bam! Bam!
A wicked purple-silver light filled the air. At the same time, a dominating physical force crushed down like Mount Tai and made everyone’s blood toss and turn.
Boom! Boom! Boom!
The three Kings were all pushed back. Blood dripped out from Jiang Feixue’s mouth – she had only just reached the Void God Realm – and her face turned pale-white.
“The strength of the Purple-Haired Demonic Duo is becoming greater and greater….”
The two forces were stunned.
“That demonic duo seems to have been holding back earlier….” The severely-injured bearded elder’s eyes twinkled as his expression became solemn.
Whoosh! Whoosh! Whoosh!
A while later, ten or twenty figures flew over from an opposite building.
“Sky Suspension Palace!” Those from the Jiang Family and Grand Duke Qi’s Palace were filled with joy, but these reinforcements were one step too late. The Purple-Haired Demonic Duo had already disappeared like ghosts.
“We’re too late… the Purple-Haired Demonic Duo seems to have sensed us and left early.”
The three King geniuses from Sky Suspension Palace – Xuanyuan Wen, Senior Martial Brother Zhuge, and the female in apricot robes – walked up. The eyes of these three Kings were all cold.
“Hmph, the Purple-Haired Demonic Duo seems to think they’ve lived too long. Even though they didn’t succeed, they even dared to ambush Sky Suspension Palace.” The apricot-robed female’s face was cold.
“Don’t worry, I will kill that demonic duo myself.” Killing intent and anger appeared on Xuanyuan Wen’s elegant face for the first time. A divine light seemed to shoot out of his eyes, and it had the ability to slice through space and cut through all Intents.
“This Intent seems to be stronger than normal Emperor Intent….”
The expressions of those from the Jiang family and Grand Duke Qi’s Palace were filled with shock, while those from Sky Suspension Palace weren’t surprised.
“If it wasn’t for the fact that Junior Martial Brother Xuanyuan decided to suppress himself, he would’ve become an Emperor before he entered the Divine Illusion Dimension,” Senior Martial Brother Zhuge said calmly, and those from the Jiang Family and Grand Duke Qi’s Palace revealed joyful expressions.
With Xuanyuan Wen being so strong, it would be extremely simple to deal with the Purple-Haired Demonic Duo.
