Chapter 897: I’ll Let You Run for Ten Breaths
Translator: Thunder07 Editor: adeadaxe
“Left Eyed Heavenly Emperor, it all ends here.”
The shadow-like sword of Supreme Emperor Dark Night stabbed extremely quickly toward the sitting Zhao Feng.
The sword seemed to have exceeded the limits of physical objects as it pierced straight through Zhao Feng’s back.
Zhao Feng, who was busy cultivating, gave a cry as his body stiffened. He didn’t have the ability to fight back at all.
This scene was just like how Supreme Emperor Dark Night managed to ambush Duke Nanfeng. Supreme Emperor Dark Night was just too fast, and no one was able to evade him at such a close distance. Furthermore, his target was focused on cultivating, so his senses toward the outside world were weakened.
The place where Zhao Feng was stabbed didn’t bleed. Instead, wisps of black smoke appeared and started to rot his body. At the same time, the aura of life started to fade away.
“Hmm?” Supreme Emperor Dark Night’s eyebrows rose. He felt that something was off.
He always made a lot of preparations for any target that he was going to assassinate. In this case, he knew that the Left Eyed Heavenly Emperor didn’t just have an eye-bloodline that specialized in Soul techniques, he also had an extremely powerful body.
The difficulty of assassinating Zhao Feng should have been even higher than Duke Nanfeng. Even though Supreme Emperor Dark Night’s Sky Awakening Piercer was one of the seven great Inheritance Sacred Weapons of the Dao of Assassination and contained the Black Fountain Poison of Black Screen Corner, he shouldn’t have been able to kill Zhao Feng so easily.
A familiar undulation of the Dao of Assassination and a cold Intent appeared the moment he realized that something was amiss.
A shadow-like dagger pierced into Supreme Emperor Dark Night’s back. The aura of this dagger was on par with his Sky Awakening Piercer.
The little thieving cat’s strike was almost at the exact same time that the Supreme Emperor Dark Night unleashed his attack. Since he went through with his attack against Zhao Feng, he was unable to dodge the attack that came for him.
“What…? The Shadow Kill Imperial Dagger?”
Supreme Emperor Dark Night’s body twisted as pain coursed through his body.
If it was a normal attack, he wouldn’t put it in his eyes; at the very most, he would just lose one of his Eight-Winged Shadow Doppelgangers. However, the little thieving cat’s Shadow Kill Imperial Dagger and its offensive techniques were both from the Dao of Assassination and countered his bloodline. What made him especially cold though was that the Zhao Feng he stabbed wasn’t actually Zhao Feng.
A thunderous boom sounded across the soul-dimension, as if ten thousand arcs of lightning were crushing down. Supreme Emperor Dark Night’s body was injured, and a boom crackled throughout his soul.
In the next instant, a dominating physical force crushed onto Supreme Emperor Dark Night’s body as he was covered in a golden-blue light.
Boom! Boom! Bam!
The entire building where Zhao Feng was cultivating turned into dust.
“Supreme Emperor Dark Night, I was waiting for you!”
Zhao Feng’s golden-blue Sacred Body made him taller as he unleashed his Sacred Lightning Dominating Fist.
The real Zhao Feng had been cultivating below. The scenery of him cultivating was actually real, but the Zhao Feng that was stabbed was just a Spiritual Flesh Snow Jade Lotus Root body. Since the real Zhao Feng was cultivating directly below, it was hard to notice the difference.
On top of that, Zhao Feng had the little thieving cat sit silently in a corner behind the fake. As long as Supreme Emperor Dark Night stabbed the fake Zhao Feng, he would be unable to dodge the little thieving cat’s ambush.
I fell for it! Supreme Emperor Dark Night’s body was thrown into the sky as he injured by the combined forces of Zhao Feng and the little thieving cat. Although his movement technique was agile, Zhao Feng’s left eye locked onto him.
“Sacred Lightning Dominating Fist!” Zhao Feng unleashed giant punches that seemed to burn the sky every time.
Bam! Bam! Boom!
Under the continuous barrage of the Sacred Lightning Dominating Fist and Zhao Feng’s Blood Devil Sun bloodline, Supreme Emperor Dark Night’s body shattered and turned into ashes due to the igniting effect.
“What a weird Eight-Winged Darkness Doppelganger technique.”
Zhao Feng’s God’s Spiritual Eye saw two figures appear from Supreme Emperor Dark Night’s body. One of them was a doppelganger, which absorbed most of the damage and was destroyed. On the other hand, the real body turned into a streak of dark light and used a technique similar to the little thieving cat.
A pair of bat wings extended behind Supreme Emperor Dark Night’s back as he merged into the darkness with surprising speed. In the blink of an eye, the true Supreme Emperor Dark Night had already left the Duke’s Palace.
It was his style to leave after one blow, regardless of whether he succeeded or not. Even if it wasn’t, Zhao Feng and the little thieving cat had both ambushed and injured him.
“Bastard, how dare you come to the Duke’s Palace again!?” a powerful voice sounded from the depths of the Duke’s Palace.
A purple-golden light shot into the sky and filled the air.
“Battle-power of a Quasi-Sacred Lord!” Supreme Emperor Dark Night’s expression changed dramatically. He knew that Duke Nanfeng didn’t die, but he didn’t expect the Duke to actually become stronger.
The area around Supreme Emperor Dark Night became covered by a purple-golden glow that washed over everything in its path, and his figure was squeezed out.
“Supreme Emperor Dark Night!”
The experts within the Duke’s Palace could see a non-human male with a pair of bat wings and slim figure. The non-human male was covered by dark scales and surrounded in darkness, as if he was part of the shadows themselves.
“Keep this bastard here!”
Duke Nanfeng leapt into the air and released a brilliant glow of purple and gold. While this light looked beautiful and pretty, its power surpassed everyone present.
Lightning Wings Flying Technique!
A pair of Wind Lightning wings formed behind Zhao Feng’s back as he charged toward Supreme Emperor Dark Night.
“Eight-Winged Shadow Sky Piercer!”
Supreme Emperor Dark Night snickered coldly as the bat wings behind him transformed into eight blades and sliced in eight directions.
Shu Shu Shu Shu~~~~
Eight blades of light instantly sliced through the purple-golden light. The power from each blade was almost comparable to the attack of a peak Emperor. Even more incredibly, these eight beams of blade-light were rather agile, and at least four of them sliced toward Zhao Feng and Duke Nanfeng.
Zhao Feng fists shattered two of the blade-lights.
Duke Nanfeng also easily destroyed two beams with his Quasi-Sacred Lord power. The problem was that he still needed to watch out for the other blade-lights since they would harm the others within the Duke’s Palace. This meant that Duke Nanfeng lost track of Supreme Emperor Dark Night since he needed to help the others.
How many doppelgangers does this guy have? Zhao Feng’s left eye caught sight of a winged figure that was flying through the air.
Outside the Great Island Zone, in the limitless ocean, a dark light suddenly blinked and formed the figure of a male with bat wings and a weak expression.
“As expected of the Left Eyed heavenly Emperor. You managed to make me fail, but your nightmare has only just started. No one below the Mystic Light Realm can manage to escape from my assassinations.” Supreme Emperor Dark Night gazed down coldly.
The expressions of Duke Nanfeng and company within the Duke’s Palace were slightly ugly. This was the second time that Supreme Emperor Dark Night had entered the Duke’s Palace. However, purely in terms of speed, Duke Nanfeng wasn’t able to catch up to Supreme Emperor Dark Night even with the battle-power of a Quasi-Sacred Lord.
Only one person in the Duke’s Palace had a calm expression – Zhao Feng. This time around, he set an ambush and lured Supreme Emperor Dark Night to assassinate him, and he succeeded in injuring his target.
“Supreme Emperor Dark Night, I’ll give you ten breaths to run away.”
The purple-haired youth remained calm, but his left eye had locked onto Supreme Emperor Dark Night.
Hearing that, Supreme Emperor Dark Night’s heart shook, and everyone else within the Duke’s Palace looked at Zhao Feng in disbelief.
Zhao Feng just stood there and didn’t chase after him. His left eye seemed to ignore the limitations of space and lock onto Supreme Emperor Dark Night.
“Junior, you’re the first to say such a thing to me.” Supreme Emperor Dark Night’s face was filled with coldness, but he had to leave. He definitely wasn’t Duke Nanfeng’s and Zhao Feng’s match.
Being one of the top assassins, he didn’t specialize in head-on combat. Although his battle-power was close to a Quasi-Sacred Lord, his chance of winning against Zhao Feng, Demonic Emperor Xuan Luo, and others of that caliber head-on wasn’t high.
Zhao Feng remained unmoving and started to count. Duke Nanfeng next to him wanted to take action but was stopped by Zhao Feng.
“Zhao Feng, I hope your words won’t become a joke.” Supreme Emperor Dark Night suppressed the anger and shock in his heart as he turned into a streak of dark light and sped into the limitless ocean.
Ten breaths hadn’t ended yet, so Zhao Feng didn’t immediately chase after him. His gaze landed on Duke Nanfeng.
“Duke, I will need your Cloud Silkworm Saint Butterfly to kill this bastard.” Zhao Feng gave a faint smile.
“Zhao Feng, you’re really thinking about chasing Supreme Emperor Dark Night by yourself?” Duke Nanfeng asked in a solemn tone. He knew that he couldn’t stop Zhao Feng.
“With the Cloud Silkworm Saint Butterfly, I’m 70-80% confident,” Zhao Feng replied.
The period of ten breaths was slowly closing in, and Duke Nanfeng took out the Cloud Silkworm Saint Butterfly without hesitation.
The Cloud Silkworm Saint Butterfly was extremely happy when it saw Zhao Feng and the little thieving cat, and it soon went to play with the little thieving cat. Zhao Feng reached out and put the Cloud Silkworm Saint Butterfly and the little thieving cat into the Misty Spatial World.
“Zhao Feng, be careful. Don’t underestimate Supreme Emperor Dark Night, and watch out for his counterattacks,” Duke Nanfeng warned.
“Duke, please relax. I’ll be back very soon.”
After saying that, Zhao Feng’s wings expanded, and he turned into a streak of light and headed toward the limitless ocean.
“Lightning… Wings… Spatial… Flash!”
A light flashed through Zhao Feng’s eyes as the wings behind him released a brilliant glow of light that increased his speed to the maximum.
Duke Nanfeng and the others within the Duke’s Palace exclaimed.
