Chapter 888: Sacred Lightning Protection

“You…!” Bi Qingyue’s body froze as she looked at the smiling Zhao Feng.
In the span of just a couple breaths, Zhao Feng had killed three peak Emperors. After slaying the purple-faced elder, Bi Qingyue was also attacked.
The material of the dagger that had stabbed into her back was extremely unique, and it contained a profound Intent of the Dao of Assassination.
A numbing sensation passed throughout her body. In an instant, she was like a petrified beauty in the moonlight. She was frozen and unable to say a word.
The little thieving cat’s Shadow Kill Imperial Dagger had been upgraded in the Heaven’s Legacy City and now had a numbing effect.
At this moment, the process of Zhao Feng killing the other three peak Emperors surfaced in Bi Qingyue’s mind.
In the first ambush, Zhao Feng had pretended to be extremely weak and managed to bind two peak Emperors with silk. If the Cloud Silkworm Saint Butterfly used its full strength, the two peak Emperors would have been stuck in there for a long. Even though the Cloud Silkworm Saint Butterfly wasn’t at its peak, it could handle Emperors.
Zhao Feng then deliberately let the two peak Emperors struggle and break out, which served as bait to lure in the other two peak Emperors. In order to save the two peak Emperors, Bi Qingyue and the purple-faced elder charged in together to pressure Zhao Feng, but the Cloud Silkworm Saint Butterfly unleashed its Dream Pollen to reduce their battle-power.
Zhao Feng then initiated the second ambush, and the purple-faced elder was directly slain. Since Bi Qingyue was ready to a certain degree and half a step behind the other Emperor, she managed to survive.
Bi Qingyue managed to summon a layer of moonlight as the little thieving cat’s Shadow Kill Imperial Dagger stabbed into her body. However, since her battle-power had been reduced and the weapon was the Shadow Kill Imperial Dagger, she was still severely injured.
Bi Qingyue groaned as waves of moonlight radiated from her body and pushed away the little thieving cat and the Shadow Kill Imperial Dagger. However, this injured her even more and made her sweat.
The little thieving cat flipped in the air and landed on Zhao Feng’s arm.
“You’ve done a good job.”
Zhao Feng put the little thieving cat into the Misty Spatial World with a wave of his hand.
The little thieving cat didn’t specialize in head-on fights, and the dark-green-robed Bi Qingyue was rather wary at the moment. She may have been injured, but she was still a peak Emperor.
Zhao Feng’s original aim was to kill at least three Emperors before Demonic Emperor Xuan Luo arrived. It would have been perfect if he had been able to slay all four, but Zhao Feng had made plenty of preparations, so he would’ve killed two of them at the very least.
At this instant, of the four peak Emperors, three had been killed, and the fourth was injured and unable to use her full battle-power.
“Brat, how dare you use such a shameless method to kill three Elders of Nine Darkness Palace!” The just-arrived Demonic Emperor Xuan Luo was stunned and let out a roar.
Everything had happened far too quickly. The silver-haired elder and the other Void God Realm experts of the Duke’s Palace were completely dazed. In just a couple breaths, Zhao Feng had used several methods to slay three peak Emperors and severely injure a fourth.
At this instant, of the five peak Emperors, only Demonic Emperor Xuan Luo still had his complete battle-power remaining.
The strength of Demonic Emperor Xuan Luo should be on the same level as the Emperor of Death, and perhaps even slightly stronger…. Zhao Feng inspected this unparalleled Emperor.
To a certain degree, one could look at Demonic Emperor Xuan Luo as someone with the battle-power of a “half-step Sacred Lord,” but there was no such thing as that in terms of actual cultivation. The Mystic Light Realm focused on the physical world and True Yuan. One either successfully transformed from a snake to a dragon or they didn’t.
In front of a tattered building, Zhao Feng and Demonic Emperor Xuan Luo stood opposite from one another. There was only a couple dozen yards between them.
The flaming demonic sovereign that was Demonic Emperor Xuan Luo was more than ten stories high, and a layer of flames behind his back blotted out half the sky.
Only the disturbance of Sacred Power from the person trying to break through to the Mystic Light Realm nearby could suppress Demonic Emperor Xuan Luo.
Zhao Feng was only a few meters tall even under the effect of the Sacred Lightning Body, and he was a bit off Demonic Emperor Xuan Luo’s Scorching Demon Spirit Body in terms of fierceness and momentum.
However, the advantage in size didn’t give Demonic Emperor Xuan Luo much confidence. His flaming body floated in the air, and he didn’t dare to easily attack. Instead, wariness and cautiousness appeared in his eyes. Moments ago, he watched three peak Emperors get killed by Zhao Feng’s calculations.
The spectating Void God Realms within the Duke’s Palace held their breath as their hearts started to thud. The purple-haired youth who they thought was at the disadvantage had quickly slain three peak Emperors, severely injured the fourth, and was now facing the unrivalled Demonic Emperor Xuan Luo – all with the cultivation of a King.
“Demonic Emperor Xuan Luo, do you dare to fight me?” Zhao Feng suddenly spoke as the physical aura of his Sacred Lightning Body started to rise.
The progress of his Sacred Lightning Body had been slow during the past couple months, but it suddenly ignited after facing such a strong foe. Indeed, after recovering the strength of his previous life, Zhao Feng hadn’t sparred with such a strong opponent before.
“Lord Protector, don’t drag out the fight for long. This Zhao Feng has a lot of techniques as well as the help of the Cloud Silkworm Saint Butterfly. There’s also other Emperors within the Duke’s Palace….” Bi Qingyue quickly messaged.
She was injured right now, and her battle-power was much lower. She was on guard against Zhao Feng at every moment. Right now, she was no longer considering how to kill Zhao Feng; she only cared about how she could escape, and the only way Bi Qingyue could escape was to charge out with Demonic Emperor Xuan Luo.
“Retreat…? I’ve never lost so utterly before….” Demonic Emperor Xuan Luo’s expression became grim.
He was extremely strong and couldn’t allow himself to lose against a mere youth so easily, even if that youth was the Left Eyed Heavenly Emperor from the Cang Ocean. Even if he did end up retreating, he at least wanted to prove his fame and teach these people a lesson first.
“Do you dare to fight me!?” Zhao Feng roared as he circulated his Sacred Lightning Body to the maximum and became even taller.
A wave of light burst out from Zhao Feng as he punched toward Demonic Emperor Xuan Luo with his full power.
The speed and explosiveness of this attack made Bi Qingyue click her tongue. Even Demonic Emperor Xuan Luo was caught off guard. No one would have thought that this youth was so strong.
“Hmph!” Demonic Emperor Xuan Luo’s eyes became cold as a black ripple glowed around him.
He didn’t move forward or backward; he just stood there and took Zhao Feng’s attack head-on with his Demon Spirit Body.
A loud explosion sounded as Zhao Feng’s terrifying punch, which contained his physical strength and his Blood Devil Sun bloodline, shook Demonic Emperor Xuan Luo’s body.
A chaotic flame burned across Demonic Emperor Xuan Luo’s body and started to extend across his entire body. Demonic Emperor Xuan Luo’s expression was grim as his own flames engulfed the Blood Devil Sun flames.
The Scorching Demon Spirit Body he cultivated was formed from countless flames of darkness, and it was completely different from the Blood Devil Sun.
However, he was disgusted when he realized that Zhao Feng’s punch absorbed some of the energy in his body.
Zhao Feng was pushed back by the black ripple from Demonic Emperor Xuan Luo.
“An undying body….” Zhao Feng looked at Demonic Emperor Xuan Luo’s body. There was originally a large hole there from his punch, but it was quickly healing. This meant that Zhao Feng’s punch just now didn’t actually threaten Demonic Emperor Xuan Luo. On top of that, Zhao Feng found that his Blood Devil Sun bloodline was countered by the opponent’s flames, and the lifesteal effect of his bloodline was weaker.
Demonic Emperor Xuan Luo’s Demon Spirit Body is even stronger than the Emperor of Death’s Immortal Death Body.
Zhao Feng’s pupils contracted. The main reason the Emperor of Death lost to him in the past was because he specialized in Soul and eye-bloodline techniques, which were perfectly countered by the God’s Spiritual Eye. Demonic Emperor Xuan Luo was much stronger than the Emperor of Death in a head-on fight.
“Kneel!” Demonic Emperor Xuan Luo roared, and he waved his giant hand as the flames behind him became bigger.
An enormous hand passed through the air and crushed toward Zhao Feng alongside demonic flames. The power of this hand could shake Heaven and Earth, and its Intent had also reached a high level.
The space around Zhao Feng was locked onto by a certain power similar to the ability of the Sky Locking Bow. Unknowingly, the space around Zhao Feng started to erode under a dark flame.
One had to admit that Demonic Emperor Xuan Luo’s skill, Intent, body, and soul had all reached the limit of the Void God Realm. In some respects, he had even stepped into the domain of the Mystic Light Realm, especially in regard to his techniques. His mastery had reached an incredible level.
Zhao Feng felt slightly troubled, which only happened when he met strong enemies.
It wouldn’t be too hard for him to defeat Demonic Emperor Xuan Luo if he utilized the Cloud Silkworm Saint Butterfly or his eye-bloodline or the God Tribulation Lightning. However, Zhao Feng wanted to fight with this famous expert of the lord dynasty.
“Sacred Lightning Protection!” Zhao Feng merged the power of his Wind Lightning and his Sacred Lightning physical force together. An ancient barrier of lightning formed around him; it shone with golden light and gave off a thunderous hum.
Boom! Bam! Weng~~
The giant hand was blocked by the Sacred Lightning Protection, causing explosions to sound. The Sacred Lightning Protection then released a bright golden layer of lightning that pushed the giant hand away.
“A fusion of physical force and lightning? What kind of defensive secret technique is this?” Demonic Emperor Xuan Luo’s heart shook. His powerful blow did no damage to Zhao Feng and was even counterattacked by the Sacred Lightning Protection.
Bam! Boom Boom~~~~!
Although the clash between Zhao Feng and Demonic Emperor Xuan Luo was extremely condensed, holes filled the ground within a thousand-yard-radius of their fight.
