Chapter 890 – Supreme Emperor Dark Night
“Quick, go help Duke Nanfeng!”
The silver-haired elder and company charged toward Duke Nanfeng’s location with regret and panic. Due to the five peak Emperors from Nine Darkness Palace, everyone had forgotten about the guy who was breaking through to the Mystic Light Realm. They never would have thought that there would be an assassin other than Demonic Emperor Xuan Luo of Nine Darkness Palace.
“There’s not enough time…!” Zhao Feng’s heart jumped when he saw the scene in the underground secret chamber with his left eye.
At this moment, the mysterious male in darkness had already pulled out the sword from Duke Nanfeng’s body, causing even more damage. Duke Nanfeng’s injuries didn’t bleed; a smelly black smoke appeared instead. It was obvious that the sword had a rare type of poison on it.
Zhao Feng felt regretful and partially blamed himself. Duke Nanfeng had given the Cloud Silkworm Saint Butterfly to him to take care of, and it could’ve been a great help for Duke Nanfeng.
The main reason why Duke Nanfeng had introduced the other three Emperors to Zhao Feng was so that they could all protect the Duke’s Palace together in case any accidents happened. In normal situations, no one would dare to take action against Duke Nanfeng on the surface, and yet this had happened.
In the underground chamber:
“You’re the assassin ranked 29th in the Black Screen Corner, Supreme Emperor Dark Night…!” Duke Nanfeng’s body swayed. His face was white as despair and bitterness filled his eyes.
“That’s right, I’m Supreme Emperor Dark Night, but I’m now ranked 25th. Half a month ago, I participated in assassinating a heavily-injured Sacred Lord, so my rank has gone up.”
The male in darkness gave a confident smile. It was as if he already had victory in his grasp, and he gave an interested look toward Zhao Feng’s direction after pulling out the sword.
Zhao Feng felt a sense of coldness and danger in that gaze.
“Get the assassin!” The silver-haired elder and the other Emperor were the first to arrive at Duke Nanfeng’s underground chamber, but an attack had already arrived before the two could do anything.
A half-transparent dark purple eye flame and an aura of God Tribulation Lightning thundered toward Supreme Emperor Dark Night.
“Argh!” The male in darkness gave a scream as his body shattered.
“What a powerful eye-bloodline technique!” The silver-haired elder and company all took in a cold breath, and they couldn’t help but look toward Zhao Feng who hadn’t even arrived yet.
The eye flame just now exerted great pressure on the two Emperors.
“Wind Lightning Eye Flame!”
Zhao Feng’s expression changed dramatically after using his eye-bloodline. The sense of danger that Supreme Emperor Dark Night gave him was even above Demonic Emperor Xuan Luo’s. How could he be killed so easily?
A male with a pair of bat wings appeared in the sky far away from the Duke’s Palace. He was surrounded in darkness, and surprise appeared in his eyes.
“Supreme Emperor Dark Night!” The expressions of the silver-haired elder and other experts of the Duke’s Palace changed dramatically.
Almost no one had seen how Supreme Emperor Dark Night retreated or completed the attack.
“This Supreme Emperor Dark Night cultivates the bloodline sacred technique Eight-Winged Shadow Doppelganger technique and can split himself into several bodies, each with 30-40% battle-power of his original body. The one that has appeared right now might just be a doppelganger.” Duke Nanfeng coughed as his face became even paler. It was obvious that he had heard of Supreme Emperor Dark Night before.
“Zezeze, as expected of the Left Eyed heavenly Emperor of the Cang Ocean. However, you’re also a target of the Black Screen Corner. My next target might be you….” Supreme Emperor Dark Night looked playfully toward Zhao Feng as his wings flapped.
With a flash of darkness, the bat-winged male merged into the sky and disappeared. In terms of speed, Supreme Emperor Dark Night wasn’t much slower than Zhao Feng at his peak, and he was even more agile.
“What a terrifying assassin. What kind of existence is the Black Screen Corner?” Zhao Feng’s expression became solemn.
Although Supreme Emperor Dark Night wasn’t a Mystic Light Realm Sacred Lord, his technique and bloodline had reached the limit of a peak Emperor; he had the battle-power of a Quasi Sacred Lord.
There was also a suspicious point – why did Supreme Emperor Dark Night leave immediately after one attack without finishing off Duke Nanfeng?
“Being one of the top assassins of the Black Screen Corner, Supreme Emperor Dark Night always leaves after one blow. I’m thinking that his mission was only to stop me from breaking through to the Mystic Light Realm, or else he wouldn’t have left me alive.” Duke Nanfeng sighed.
“My Lord, are you okay?” The other experts and guards of the Duke’s Palace arrived and blamed it on themselves.
Zhao Feng looked at Duke Nanfeng’s injuries, and his eyebrows locked together.
“It is very likely that I will die, so I’ll need to settle my will now….” Duke Nanfeng smiled bitterly as his aura became weaker and weaker.
“My Lord!” The hearts of those present shook as they revealed unwilling expressions.
Duke Nanfeng’s injuries were expanding and rotting. More and more black smoke rose from his body. Duke Nanfeng wasn’t able to stop this poison even with his strength.
“I was stabbed by one of the seven great inheritance weapons of the Dao of Assassination – the Sky Awakening Piercer. It contains the Black Fountain Poison of Black Screen Corner. This poison takes effect extremely quickly, and no one below the Mystic Light Realm is likely to suppress it unless they’ve cultivated an undying body or something similar, and even then, they’ll only be able to live a little longer.”
Duke Nanfeng’s aura of life was starting to fade away, and his gaze was starting to become empty.
Zhao Feng inspected it with his God’s Spiritual Eye and saw that the poison was eroding the soul as well as the physical body. Even Zhao Feng felt troubled against the Black Fountain Poison. After all, he wasn’t a doctor.
The others didn’t know what to know. There were doctors in the Duke’s Palace, but they wouldn’t be able to do anything for Duke Nanfeng.
“Let me try something.” Zhao Feng stood forward, and a cold pond that radiated a freezing Intent could be faintly seen in his left eye.
“Eye of Ice Soul!” Zhao Feng’s left eye released a cold Intent that covered and froze Duke Nanfeng’s soul.
Duke Nanfeng was still conscious, but he knew that Zhao Feng was helping him, so he didn’t block it.
Duke Nanfeng’s soul was soon covered by a cold Intent, and the Black Fountain Poison’s erosion slowed dramatically.
Zhao Feng’s goal was very clear – he wanted to save Duke Nanfeng’s soul. The soul was the basis of everything. Those that had reached the Void God Realm could use their soul to take over another body or construct a new one with some treasures.
Zhao Feng then started to analyze the Black Fountain Poison within Duke Nanfeng’s body.
The Black Fountain Poison was extremely unique; it was an item that existed between the physical dimension and the void. It didn’t affect normal physical items or True Yuan, but it was extremely lethal against life and souls. If one was poisoned by this, their physical body and soul would rot.
To stop this erosion, Zhao Feng circulated his Ice Water bloodline and the Ice Imperial Spear to seal Duke Nanfeng’s body in ice.
“Cloud Silkworm Saint Butterfly….” Duke Nanfeng managed to murmur before fainting.
Zhao Feng understood. The Cloud Silkworm Saint Butterfly had many supportive abilities; its pollen could be used to attack enemies, but it could also be used as an antidote for some poisons.
The little thieving cat and the Cloud Silkworm Saint Butterfly soon arrived.
Seeing that its owner was poisoned, the Cloud Silkworm Saint Butterfly immediately spat out a mouthful of pure white pollen over Duke Nanfeng. Zhao Feng immediately circulated his Ice Water bloodline to let the white pollen merge into Duke Nanfeng’s body and soul.
Zhao Feng could feel that the poison in Duke Nanfeng’s body was only becoming slightly weaker. It looked like the Cloud Silkworm Saint Butterfly could only delay Duke Nanfeng’s death.
The little thieving cat waved its paws at Zhao Feng.
“Hmm?” Zhao Feng seemed to understand and summoned more than a dozen Five Poison Distinct Bees from the Misty Spatial World.
The Five Poison Distinct Bees could extract all kinds of pollen, including toxic pollen.
“Go!” Zhao Feng waved his hand, and the dozens of elite bees started to extract the poison from Duke Nanfeng.
A couple breaths later:
One of the Five Poison Distinct Bees turned into a puddle of black water and died after extracting for a while.
“Hmm? It seems to be effective.” Zhao Feng revealed a weird expression.
The Cloud Silkworm Saint Butterfly and his ice seal could only delay the inevitable, but after the death of one of the Five Poison Distinct Bees, there seemed to be a bit less Black Fountain Poison in Duke Nanfeng’s body.
The other bees on Duke Nanfeng’s body died one after the other.
In order to use their full potential, Zhao Feng even sent out a Bee King to lead several elite bees onto Duke Nanfeng’s body.
Time passed by slowly, and the color of Duke Nanfeng’s face became better with the death of each Five Poison Distinct Bee.
It could be said that they were trading one life for another. Zhao Feng didn’t expect that the Five Poison Distinct Bees could use their “suicidal” abilities here.
Zhao Feng also seemed to remember something else, and he took out some white petals of a Green Water Sky Lotus from the Misty Spatial World.
A calm and cool layer of white light surrounded the petal. Zhao Feng crushed it and squeezed out the juice as he gave it to Duke Nanfeng.
“Petal of the Green Water Sky Lotus?” Duke Nanfeng revealed a joyful expression.
He had heard of the Green Water Sky Lotus before. The petals of this lotus were useful for many things. They could cleanse the body and soul as well as increase one’s state of existence. It also had the ability to get rid of poison.
After drinking the juice, a faint layer of white light glittered within Duke Nanfeng’s body and then covered his body like a blooming flower. Adding this with the Five Poisonous Distinct Bees’ efforts, the Black Fountain Poison was quickly removed.
Zhao Feng let out a breath. If Duke Nanfeng had died, he would’ve felt quite guilty. After all, he was the one that had attracted the five peak Emperors from Nine Darkness Palace, and he had fought with Demonic Emperor Xuan Luo for a long time. If this wasn’t the case, then Supreme Emperor Dark Night would have met a lot more resistance when taking action.
“Zhao Feng, thank you. You also need to watch out and be careful since you’re also on Black Screen Corner’s list.”
Duke Nanfeng looked at Zhao Feng, then sent him a private message with his Divine Sense, “Be careful. Supreme Emperor Dark Night might come back once more and assassinate you while you’re not on guard.”
