Chapter 868 – The Last Moment
“There’s nothing we can do….”
The news created shockwaves throughout Xie Yang Palace at the very last moment. Fear and panic spread everywhere.
The elites from Sky Suspension Palace, the Great Gan Imperials, Sky Sword Pavilion, the Duanmu Family, and various other forces started to search for the Blue Serpent King duo.
However, the Xie Yang Palace was considered its own dimension, and all types of senses were dramatically weakened. It would be extremely difficult to find two people in here.
What was more troublesome was the Thousand Changes Illusionist Dragon’s technique; only a few people were able to see through it.
“Zhao Feng, think of something!” Ji Lan seemed to grasp onto the last straw of hope as she begged.
She didn’t know why, but she felt confident in this youth whose cultivation wasn’t very high. If even Zhao Feng couldn’t do anything, the Black Destruction Serpent Dragon would descend.
“There’s only one method left.” Zhao Feng gave a sigh after some thinking.
Xie Yang Palace was too big, so it would extremely difficult to find two people who were purposely hiding themselves even if he used the Eye of Heaven. Zhao Feng was only able to confirm their location last time because he knew that they would be taking action as the fake Demonic Duo, and the Building of Refinement was an area with a huge chunk of people. This time though, they were hiding, and they would be on guard against Zhao Feng.
“What method?” Hope appeared in Ji Lan’s purple eyes, but Zhao Feng only looked at her and didn’t say anything.
Ji Lan instantly understood; she still had a Mark of Destruction, so she wouldn’t be able to avoid alerting the Black Destruction Serpent Dragon.
Zhao Feng and Nan Gongsheng looked at each other.
The armguard on Zhao Feng’s arm lit up, and a silvery spatial undulation covered the duo. The next instant, Zhao Feng and Nan Gongsheng disappeared under the gazes of the Ji Family group.
“So… that’s the power of the substandard God weapon, the Misty Spatial World?”
The elites of the Ji Family had gaping mouths. They obviously didn’t know that Zhao Feng left nineteen spatial markings around the edges of Xie Yang Palace.
At the same time, the top Kings from Sky Suspension Palace, the Great Gan Imperials, and company headed toward the outer edges of the Xie Yang Palace.
“I hope we make it in time.” Senior Martial Brother Zhuge took a deep breath. “There’s only one way to stop those two.”
At this instant, all the Kings within Xie Yang Palace were rushing toward the outer edges.
No one knew how much time passed. At a certain point in time, at the edge of Xie Yang Palace:
“We’re almost there…!”
A transparent dark green light was merged with its surroundings as it headed in a certain direction. Ahead, outside the God’s Forbidden Array, was the dark shadow of a black scaled body.
The dark green light covered the Blue Serpent King and the Thousand Changes Illusionist Dragon.
“Lord Black Serpent Dragon, we’re almost there!” Excitement appeared on the Blue Serpent King’s face.
“Stop right there!”
Right at this instant, a flash of dark silver appeared in front of them, revealing the figures of two purple-haired figures.
“Purple-Haired Demonic Duo! How is this possible!?”
The Blue Serpent King’s and the Thousand Changes Illusionist Dragon’s hearts shook.
A little dancing cat appeared in front of Zhao Feng and Nan Gongsheng.
The Blue Serpent King and the Thousand Changes Illusionist Dragon were first surprised, then started to roar with laughter.
“Hahahaha…! Zhao Feng, your Soul Dao eye-bloodline techniques are useless against us now.” The Blue Serpent King roared with laughter as a surge of Emperor Intent shot out of his body and froze Heaven and Earth. Frost appeared on the grass and trees nearby.
A thick layer of ice crystals covered the Blue Serpent King’s body. The aura from his bloodline was enough to make normal Kings crumble in defeat.
“Emperor Intent! The Blue Serpent King has become an Emperor.”
Zhao Feng’s and Nan Gongsheng’s expressions changed. The bloodline of the Blue Serpent King was in the top ten among Imperial Dao bloodlines, so his battle-power would be extremely close to a peak Emperor after breaking through.
“Illusion God Mask.” The Thousand Changes Illusionist Dragon smiled as a clown mask appeared on his face. A surge of Soul Dao power emanated from it.
“That’s a Soul Dao Inheritance Sacred Item.” Zhao Feng’s expression became solemn.
No wonder they weren’t scared. After becoming a Void God Realm Emperor, Wei Jing’s strength was even greater than Emperor Mu Yun because of his powerful bloodline. As for the Thousand Changes Illusionist Dragon, he was already extremely resilient against Soul Dao techniques, and after obtaining a Soul Dao Inheritance Sacred Item, he wasn’t scared of Emperor-level Soul Dao techniques anymore.
“Let’s have a good two-on-two fight.” Nan Gongsheng licked his lips as the purple-and-blood-colored symbol on his forehead became brighter, and the radiance of power from him seemed to freeze space around them.
Zhao Feng’s left eye opened, and a ripple of golden-blue light was unleashed alongside the aura of his Sacred Lightning Body. However, this was just what Zhao Feng did on the surface; he also stealthily started to control the Bee Kings and elite bees in the Misty Spatial World.
They were already secretly gathering their power.
“Heh, we’re not that dumb.”
“Of you two thieves, one of you inherited the power of the Evil God and the other has the Misty Spatial World.”
The Blue Serpent King and the Thousand Changes Illusionist Dragon had cunning expressions. They knew what happened in Xie Yang Palace with the help of the Black Serpent Dragon.
With a flash of light, the Blue Serpent King and the Thousand Changes Illusionist Dragon disappeared.
“Hmm?” Zhao Feng didn’t see any traces of them.
“They’re underground!” Zhao Feng and Nan Gongsheng both looked toward the ground.
The Thousand Changes Illusionist Dragon’s horn quickly spun as a yellow and orange light glittered around him.
The Thousand Changes Illusionist Dragon passed smoothly through the earth underground.
“Earth Escape? The Thousand Changes Illusionist Dragon knows how to dig?”
Zhao Feng’s and Nan Gongsheng’s expressions changed dramatically. Although the Thousand Changes Illusionist Dragon was weaker than the Blue Serpent King, his supportive and running abilities were top-class.
“Zhao Feng, do you know how to Earth Escape?” Nan Gongsheng asked.
Zhao Feng’s face twitched as he rolled his eyes. He couldn’t do everything .
At this instant, he was slightly regretful that he didn’t choose the Earth of Wind Lightning as his first element. If he had, then Zhao Feng could easily pass through the earth.
Zhao Feng stomped his foot on the ground. The earth was extremely hard; putting aside burrowing underground, just digging a hole required a lot of effort. However, the bloodline of the Thousand Changes Illusionist Dragon actually had this unique ability.
The little thieving cat suddenly took out a spade and dug into the ground.
Beng~ Boom Boom Boom~~~~!
The earth started to shake, and Zhao Feng and Nan Gongsheng could both feel the earth under them shatter.
The Blue Serpent King duo underground both gave out a cry.
The two both spat out mouthfuls of blood as they almost became stuck in the ground.
Zhao Feng and Nan Gongsheng looked weirdly at the spade in the little thieving cat’s paws.
An enormous hole appeared where the little thieving cat dug into the ground, and countless cracks spread in every direction.
Zhao Feng guessed that the little thieving cat’s spade had the ability to crush minerals. The spade should be a support-type substandard God weapon.
Beng~ Beng~ Boom!
The little thieving cat dug the spade into the ground a couple of times again.
The Blue Serpent King and the Thousand Changes Illusionist Dragon both spat out a mouthful of blood as a muddy-yellow light covered them and brought them to the surface.
“I advise the two of you to hand over the key to the Yuan Sealing Divine Chains. Everyone is about to be able to leave the Divine Illusion Dimension safely,” Zhao Feng said.
In a two-on-two fight, Zhao Feng and Nan Gongsheng had a higher chance of victory, but if the Blue Serpent King duo just wanted to run, then it would be hard to make them stay behind. Defeating someone and killing someone were two completely different concepts.
Sou! Sou! Sou!
The sound of flying appeared at this moment.
“We made it.”
Xuanyuan Wen was the first of arrive. One could see the figures of Zhao Yufei, Mo Dongyao, Senior Martial Brother Zhuge, and some other strong Kings behind him.
The Blue Serpent King and the Thousand Changes Illusionist Dragon were about to be pincer attacked.
“Zhao Feng, we can succeed if you can just stall those two for a short moment!” Senior Martial Brother Zhuge exclaimed.
“No problem.” Zhao Feng and Nan Gongsheng were confident, and the arriving Kings let out a relieved expression. Luckily, Zhao Feng had the Misty Spatial World and managed to block the duo.
“Hahaha…!” The Blue Serpent King roared with laughter as danger approached. The duo just stood there.
“Why are you laughing!?”
Zhao Feng, Nan Gongsheng, and the newly-arrived Kings felt their hearts become heavy.
“None of you will be able to escape.”
The Blue Serpent King’s eyes went cold as a smile of mockery formed on his face. He spoke with absolute confidence.
Right at this moment, the roar of a dragon sounded from outside the God’s Forbidden Array and changed the color of Heaven and Earth. Everyone couldn’t help but look toward the Black Destruction Serpent Dragon outside the God’s Forbidden Array.
“Lord Black Serpent Dragon, this is the key to the Yuan Sealing Divine Chains.”
A male with thick eyebrows threw a large black key that was as wide as a tree through a gap toward the Black Serpent Dragon.
The key to the Yuan Sealing Divine Chains! Everyone focused, and their hearts jumped when they saw what happened.
“Gu Chaozhi!” Zhao Feng and Nan Gongsheng exclaimed.
The male with thick eyebrows handing over the key was Gu Chaozhi from Earth Spirit Hall.
“Hehe, Lord Black Serpent Dragon already saw through all of your plans, so we already gave the key to someone else. We were just a decoy.” The Thousand Changes Illusionist Dragon gave a smug smile.
“Gu Chaozhi, you’re a human. Why are you helping the Black Serpent Dragon?” Nan Gongsheng couldn’t help but ask. Back in the underground city, the Earth Spirit Hall that Gu Chaozhi was from had teamed up with Nan Gongsheng and Zhao Feng’s Ten Thousand Sacred Clan.
“The people that entered later had stronger Marks of Destruction put on us. If you guys stall for time, you may be able to leave alive, but we won’t be able to,” the Blue Serpent King Wei Jing said expressionlessly, and Zhao Feng and company became silent.
Most of the people present would make the same decision as the Blue Serpent King if they were threatened with their life.
At this point, nothing could be done.
Outside Xie Yang Palace:
The Yuan Sealing Divine Chains gave a crisp sound as they were opened, and the aura of Destruction radiating from the Black Destruction Serpent Dragon’s body became much stronger.
Peng! Peng! Peng! Peng!
The hearts of everyone present sped up as their bodies became cold.
