Chapter 568: Prepare for Battle
Everyone within the formation base rushed out upon the collapse of the defensive formation.
However, as the imperial palace was soon surrounded, they were all trapped within.
As Enlightenment Realm martial artists, Qing Pingzi, Emperor of Skymoon Country, and the patriach of the imperial family could have escaped the moment the formation collapsed, but they did not abandon the crowd to escape.
Other than these hundreds of experts, there were thousands of others including the disciples of the imperial family and the Sus. If they escaped, the rest would be massacred.
The Sus also noticed the arrival of the demon slayer, and their eyes widened in disbelief at the sight.
They were all well acquianted with this demon slayer, for he had once stayed for a long while with them. He was none other than Li Feng.
Even though Su Hong and the rest had been hiding within the walls of the imperial palace, for a period of time, they had also heard many people of the imperial family mentioning this demon slayer.
They could have never imagined that this mighty demon slayer was none other than Li Feng.
After all, Li Feng’s elixir field had been shattered. Even though it was later restored, there was no way he could have reached such a level within six months.
Six months ago, Li Feng had also followed the Sus to the imperial palace, but he had left after a few days and had not been seen since.
Yet, he had reached such high heights within a mere six months!
The younger Sus were especially shocked, because they all knew that Li Feng was practically incapacitated and had been living off the Sus. No one had objected due to his friendship with Su Mo, but they also did not make an effort to make friends with him. After all, who would wish to be friends with someone who was incapacitated?
Now that Li Feng had become the demon slayer, they were unable to believe their eyes. This had to be a joke!
Outside the imperial palace, Elder Xue Yu attacked, and a blood colored large claw headed straight for Li Feng.
This blood colored claw was extremely powerful; an average Lv 2 Enlightenment Realm martial artist might not be able to block this claw.
“Destroy!” Li Feng shouted, turned the large saber in his hand, and suddenly slashed at the claw.
There was no ripple of vital energy, nor any dazzling radiance. This saber relied on the power of pure phyiscal strength, as strong as a mountain.
An an earth-shattering explosion sounded, and the blood colored claw was shredded into pieces by Li Feng’s saber, a crimson air blast swept the surroundings.
Li Feng was thrown back hundreds of miles by the recoil, and the walls of the imperial palace collapsed when he crashed against it.
“What? He survived?” Elder Xue Yu was surprised to see that one move from him was not sufficient to finish Li Feng off.
A month ago, he only had the strength of a peak True Spirit Realm martial artist. How could he attain the strength of a Lv 3 Enlightenment Realm martial artist within a month?
Elder Xue Yu was completely baffled. His cultivation had improved at an astounding speed!
What kind of body refining skill was this demon slayer cultivating?
“You won’t be able to kill me!” Li Feng said coldly.
He had been thrown back, but he had not suffered any injuries. The Elephant’s Strength Skill did not just allow him to possess incredible physical strength, but also an equally incredible defense.
However, Li Feng also sighed inwardly. The rate his strength had improved had come at the cost of giving up genuine Qi cultivation altogether, and purely focusing on body refining skills.
He might be strong now, but compared to his opponent, he was still at a disadvantage.
However, even though he knew he would not be able to defeat his opponent, he could not just sit back and watch the Sus be massacred.
Su Mo had treated him kindly and had given him the chance to be whole again. Moreover, having stayed with the Sus for more than year, he had long since thought of them as his own tribe members.
Even if today spelt his death, he would not leave.
“I won’t be able to kill you?” Elder Xue Yu scoffed. “That was just the beginning. The strength of a Lv 3 Enlightenment Realm martial artist isn’t something you would be able to imagine!”
Elder Xue Yu flew like lightning toward Li Feng.
“Blood Soul Claw!” Elder Xue Yu thundered and attacked again. The large, blood colored claw whipped up strong winds, tearing the air within 30 meters apart, and flew at the speed of light toward Li Feng.
This large blood colored claw was extremely terrifying, its five fingers were like a sharp sword, several meters long, enough to pierce through a small hill with one claw.
“Begone!” Li Feng refused to retreat even though his strength was not at the level of Elder Xue Yu.
He jumped up and shot like an arrow straight at the large blood colored claw.
With a slash of his large war saber, he unleashed his mighty strength and shredded the large blood colored claw into pieces.
Li Feng groaned from the huge force of the recoil as he was knocked back hundreds of metres again.
“Time for you to die!” Elder Xue Yu was not about to give Li Feng a chance, and with a shove of both his hands, many blood colored claw shadows appeared out of thin air, blotted out the skies, and headed straight at Li Feng.
Li Feng stood on the ground, his face extremely grave. Just when the claw shadows were about to land on him, he immediately placed the oval shield, as tall as a human man, on the ground.
The ground rumbled, and many cracks appeared in an instant. No one knew what this oval shield was made from, but its weight was terrifying.
The oval shield completely shielded Li Feng, and formed an iron-clad defense.
The next moment, the sky full of large blood red claws crashed against the oval shield.
Boom! Boom! Boom!
The noise was deafening, and the earth shattered, sending stones flying everywhere. A huge crater with a radius of 33 meters formed instantly.
Once again, Li Feng was thrown back, this time for thousands of meters, and smashed against the walls of the imperial palace, finally landing in front of the Sus and the imperial family.
The moment Li Feng landed, he threw his war saber onto the ground and propped himself up with it.
“Li Feng!” Su Hong cried out and immediately flew toward Li Feng.
Su Hong was now a martial artists of Lv 1 True Spirit Realm, so he could fly.
“Li Feng, are you alright?” Su Hong asked worriedly.
“Uncle, I’m fine!” Li Feng finally cracked a smile. Su Hong was like family to him.
Li Feng was indeed unharmed. He already possessed incredible defensive strength, and now with the added layer of the oval shield, as long as his opponent didn’t overpower him by too much, it would not be an easy feat to kill him.
Although he was unharmed, the power of Elder Xue Yu’s attack and the large force of the recoil turned his arms numb and messed with his blood circulation.
“Even that wasn’t enough to kill him!” Elder Xue Yu immediately flew over and together with the rest of his cronies, rounded up Li Feng and the others.
His face sullen, his gaze first appraised Li Feng, then fell up the Sus, the imperial family of Skymoon Country, and those from Firmament Sect, before a sadistic smile spread across his face.
“This time, every one of you shall perish! None will escape!” Elder Xue Yu laughed coldly, and then he pointed at Li Feng and said, “I will take care of this one. Kill the rest!”
“At your command!” the remaining two black-robed men from Cold-blood Hall said. Yun Shan, Yao Meng and the experts from their sect also nodded in acknowledgement.
Hundreds of experts from Sky Yuan Sect and Sky Rapier Sect, together with the two black robed men of Lv 2 Enlightenment Realm charged at Su Hong and the rest, led by Yun Shan and Yao Meng.
“Prepare for battle!” the Emperor of Skymoon Country and Qing Pingzi yelled.
