Chapter 803: Sea Flipping Seal!
A seven colored sword glow and the black python-like metal chains crossed each other in a lightning-like manner in the sky. They erupted into a soul-stirring clear sound as glaring sparks splashed about.
Medusa's body withdrew. Her face was also quite solemn. After having swallowed a couple of spiritual bodies, the strength of Protector Tie had clearly increased. These wild and violent attacks had caused Medusa's hands to become slightly numb.
Protector Tie's body stood in the empty sky. His gaze was dark and vicious as he looked at Medusa. His mouth emitted a strange laugh that was filled with killing intent. Protector Tie did not give Medusa even a moment to catch her breath. His hand moved and the black-colored enormous-python-like chains emitted the whizz of pressurized wind as it swept across the sky. Finally, it swung violently toward Medusa.
A cold glint flashed across Medusa's eyes when she was faced with this fast attack by Protector Tie. Powerful Dou Qi was circulated in her body to the maximum. A bright seven colored glow seeped out of her body. She looked like a seven colored light figure against the sky. An enormous sword glow over a hundred feet long swung out each time the longsword in her hand was waved. A soul-stirring energy explosion erupted each time the sword glow and the black python-like chain collided. This momentum was indeed worthy of being a battle between elite Dou Zongs.
Xiao Yan's expression, who was outside of the battleground, grew increasingly more pale as the battle between Medusa and Protector Tie truly entered an intense phase. As his expression paled, an intense fluctuation of frightening energy slowly agglomerated. It was formed within the swift moving hand seal.
The heart of Zi Yan by the side was filled with anxiety upon seeing Xiao Yan's face. She clearly knew that if one failed to successfully unleash such powerful Dou Qi, there was the chance of a backlash occurring. Should that happen, it was not surprising for one to suffer serious injuries if one was lucky and might even die should it be more serious.
Although she was anxious, she did not dare to open her mouth and interrupt. She could only do her best to help protect him. Should anyone come over and interrupt at this moment, it would be a fatal blow for Xiao Yan.
While Xiao Yan was solemnly waiting, the frightening energy that was agglomerating in Xiao Yan's hand seal suddenly became chaotic. A low muffled sound was also emitted from his throat.
Zi Yan's heart immediately became tense upon hearing the muffled sound. She turned her head to take a look only to see Xiao Yan's tight frown. His face was filled with a solemn expression. Clearly, he had felt great difficulty using this Dou Skill, which possessed frightening power.
The minimum requirement to use the 'Sea Flipping Seal' was that one must possess the strength of a Dou Huang. Xiao Yan's strength had only just reached this stage. Normally speaking, if it was not because of him being different from an ordinary expert Dou Huang, it was likely that he would not have the qualification to use the 'Sea Flipping Seal' with his strength. After all, the Dou Qi required for a Dou Technique with such a frightening strength was really too terrifying. Moreover, the degree of precision that one would need to control the Dou Qi was also quite harsh.
Xiao Yan had indeed met quite some trouble at this moment. Although he had once practiced for a period of time in the small valley, there was still quite some risk when he wanted to use it as he desired in a battle. One example was this time around…
Xiao Yan could only do his best to spread his mind upon sensing the somewhat sporadic flight of powerful Dou Qi within his body. He could only try to control it from escaping in all directions. After which, he hurriedly controlled and circulated that escaping energy along the determined veins. In this way, the exhaustion of his mind was unusually great. However, the formation of the hand seals in the outside world must be maintained with the same rhythm as that of the circulation of Dou Qi. Such precise control caused even the current Xiao Yan to scramble. If his Spiritual Strength was not stronger than ordinary people, it was likely that he would have failed now because of his insufficient control.
Even though this was the case, the collaboration between Xiao Yan's hand seal and the Dou Qi gradually showed some signs of disorder after he forcefully maintained it for awhile. Some Dou Qi that his mind had lost control of began to randomly charge about. Even with the degree of strength of Xiao Yan's veins, it still emitted a slight twitching pain.
"Dammit, nothing must go wrong this time around…"
Xiao Yan tightly clenched his teeth. He forcefully endured the faint tiredness that was emitted from his mind as he forcefully used his mind to control the agreement between the Dou Qi and the transformation of his hand seals. Under this anxiety, the situation had turned increasingly worst. Finally, the Dou Qi within his body had begun to run about in a chaotic matter.
Xiao Yan's expression finally changed upon sensing the chaos within his body. If this were to continue, not only would he fail to use the 'Sea Flipping Seal' but he would also end up seriously injured due to the backlash.
The chaos in Xiao Yan's heart had just flashed and appeared when he suppressed it as quick as possible. As long as there was even a slight mistake at this moment, it was likely that he would completely fail. Currently, he was no longer that ignorant young man from back then. Being unusually rich in combat experience, he clearly understood the importance of remaining calm at such a moment.
Xiao Yan inhaled a deep breath of air. He slowly suppressed the anxiety within his heart and gradually withdrew his focused mind. He actually ceased controlling the chaotic Dou Qi that was causing a mess in his body. It was as though he was a third party who was calmly observing the chaotic Dou Qi that was spreading in all directions. At the same time, the change of his hand seals quietly slowed.
Xiao Yan had completely calmed down following the increased focus of his mind. Under this extreme calm, he appeared to have entered a mysterious condition. His ears had become completely calm.
A low cry suddenly sounded deep within his heart. Threads of thin, almost hair-like, mental threads flashed out in a lightning-like manner in all directions. Finally, they grabbed the chaotic Dou Qi that was seeping out. All of them were like numerous small streams that agglomerated from all directions before finally gathering together.
Xiao Yan's mind was distributed in a manner that was not the least bit inefficient. Under this kind of extremely calm condition, almost every thread of his mind had unleashed its maximum effect. In this way, the disorder from the earlier rush of Dou Qi immediately disappeared…
When the Dou Qi within his body was completely controlled, the tight frown on Xiao Yan's brows slowly relaxed. The speed which his hand seals changed suddenly sped up. Afterimages flew. A moment later, the hand seals suddenly stiffened on a strange seal!
Xiao Yan's hand seal was one with his thumbs pointing at him. All of his ten fingers were in a half-wounded condition in a snake-like manner. His index fingers faced each other, giving people a mysterious feeling at a glance.
Xiao Yan's hand seal solidified. His tightly shut eyes suddenly opened. A piercing glow shot out in a substance-like manner, causing Zi Yan's heart to beat violently by his side.
Powerful Dou Qi within Xiao Yan's body flowed along his Qi Paths and arrived at this hand while the hand seal solidified. A bright jade-green glow immediately erupted from his hand. A layer of strange jade-green crystal followed Xiao Yan's hand seal, and surged out while the light glow spread. In merely a moment, a palm-sized jade-crystal, with a hand seal shape, adhered to his hand.
The space around Xiao Yan suddenly fluctuated the moment the jade-crystal hand seal appeared. The powerful force that spread out caused even Zi Yan's heart to feel pressure.
The frightening energy that suddenly appeared also aroused the surrounding experts attention. Immediately, numerous shocked gazes were shot over. Finally, they focused onto Xiao Yan's hand. Everyone's expression drastically changed as they sensed the frightening energy that was contained in that crystal hand seal.
This kind of frightening energy was something that would cause even an expert Dou Huang to feel genuine fear.
It was naturally difficult for the appearance of the jade crystal hand seal to escape the attention of Medusa and Protector Tie. This was especially when they had sensed the terrifying energy that even a Dou Zong would not dare to easily slight. Their faces changed as their gazes were instantly thrown to the position where the energy was transmitted from. The both of them were stunned when they saw that the frightening energy was created by Xiao Yan.
"Cai Lin, move aside!"
Xiao Yan sternly cried out. A glint flickered in Xiao Yan's eyes as they were suddenly thrown toward Protector Tie.
Medusa hesitated for a moment upon hearing this. She vaguely nodded and a seven colored glow flashed from her body. Immediately, she transformed into a light figure that swiftly withdrew.
"Sea Flipping Seal!"
Medusa's body had just withdrawn when Xiao Yan's heart suddenly emitted a cold cry. He curled his thumb and his hand seal violently pushed forward. A jade-crystal hand-seal-shaped layer immediately left his hand. Finally, it transformed into a palm-sized crystal glow that rushed toward Protector Tie in a lightning-like manner.
Protector Tie was startled upon seeing the bright glow being shot over. He was just about to withdraw when he was shocked to discover that the bright glow was already locked onto his aura…
"This… what is this Dou Technique? How can that brat be able to use it given his Dou Huang strength?"
Protector Tie's eyes were tightly focused on the crystal glow that shot over. His expression gradually became solemn upon sensing the frightening energy that was contained within it. He discovered that he seemed to have underestimated this young man since the very beginning…
A dense black fog surged out of Protector Tie's body. The surging energy contained within the black fog caused the air to fluctuate.
The jade-green crystal rushed through the sky. In an instant, it appeared in front of the black fog. At this moment, Protector Tie was finally able to clearly see just what this crystal glow was…
Protector Tie intently frowned upon seeing this thing. His gaze immediately swept past the shape that was formed by the hand seal and was momentarily startled. Disbelief surfaced within his eyes. He involuntarily and sharply cried out, "It is actually the 'God Seal Skill'?"
A short distance away, Xiao Yan's entire body trembled upon hearing this involuntary cry by Protector Tie. The killing intent in his eyes soared. This fellow was actually able to recognize the 'Sea Flipping Skill'?
Chapter 804: Miserable Protector Tie
According to what Xun Er had said, the 'God Seal Skill' was one of the secret skills of her clan. Only those clan members with outstanding talent had the qualification to practice it. From her solemn expression, Xiao Yan could tell that this Dou Technique could be considered a high grade Dou Techniques even within her clan. Hence, she had instructed Xiao Yan not to easily use it unless it was a critical moment. Some trouble would be unavoidable should someone recognize it. The most troublesome thing was if this matter were to spread to the clan. If the members of the clan learned that such a secret skill was being practiced by an outsider, they would definitely dispatch someone to retrieve it!
There was only an extremely simple method for the retrieval of a Dou Technique. That was to kill this person. In that case, the Dou Technique that existed within his mind would naturally disappear…
The killing intent in Xiao Yan's heart soared when that Protector Tie's mouth emitted an involuntary cry. Xiao Yan recalled the solemn expression that Xun Er revealed when she was reminding him. This person must not be allowed to flee.
A storm had similarly surged within Protector Tie's heart while killing intent surged in Xiao Yan's heart. He had never expected the Dou Technique the 'Hall of Soul' warned him to be careful of would actually appear from the body of an unknown, young man.
The shock lasted for an instant before it was forcefully expelled by the frightening energy pressure that had suddenly arrived. Protector Tie's face was solemn. His hands moved. Following their movements, the dense black fog around his body suddenly fluctuated and shrank at a pace visible to the naked eye. Within a short couple of breaths, the black fog that spread over the place completely disappeared. A dark-black energy ball the size of a head replaced it, and appeared in front of Protector Tie.
The black energy ball was suspended in front of him. The color on its surface was dark and deep. At a glance, one would feel as though one's mind was about to be pulled into it. This caused a person to feel afraid of that strange black ball while perspiration dripped from all over their bodies.
As the black ball appeared, the aura all over Protector Tie's body suddenly became a lot more sluggish. He immediately clenched his teeth and flicked his finger. The black ball suddenly rushed out. An instant later, it violently collided with the jade-green crystal that came rushing over.
Two frightening energies, that caused even elite Dou Zongs' faces to change, collided like meteorites with a bang in front of a countless number of gazes!
The expected loud sound from the collision of the two did not appear. The two frightening energies transformed into a jade-green and dark-black color in the sky. They repeatedly eroded each other. The space was extremely distorted at the spot where the two made contact. That manner caused one to worry if the space would suddenly rip apart.
During the erosion between the two frightening energies, numerous energy ripples, that were over a thousand feet large, spread out from the point of contact. With the spread of this kind of frightening energy ripple, the experts from both parties were so shocked that they hurriedly landed. They clearly knew that if this wild and violent energy made contact with them, their ending today would likely be extremely miserable.
The energy ripple was spread over an extremely wide area. It nearly occupied a thousand feet in radius. In an instant, wild wind blew in the sky and cloud layers swiftly rolled. That earth-shaking unusual phenomenon caused a countless number of people to become panic stricken. Their faces were pale as a sheet….
The corrosion of the two energies continued for a couple of minutes. Finally, an extremely sturdy black-green energy ripple suddenly swept out with an angry thunder-like roar!
The black-green energy ripple swept over the sky. The pressure that was contained in this energy was extremely strong and it caused the trees in the mountain range below to emit a crackling sound as all of them broke apart, waking a countless number of Magical Beast that were hidden. Some parts of the towering mountain range broke apart under this energy ripple. The mountain peak collapsed as it carried a countless number of enormous rocks, that rumbled and smashed, down from the mountain peak. This Sky Scorpion Mountain Range descended into the most chaotic state experienced yet.
That black-green energy ripple had naturally also enveloped Xiao Yan and Protector Tie. The former was still alright. Medusa, who was observing the area, moved the moment she saw that the situation was bad, and immediately dragged Xiao Yan and Zi Yan far away. That protector Tie, however, was far too close to the point where the intense energies crossed each other. This resulted in him being struck by the remanent waves. A muffled groan was emitted and his body withdrew in a somewhat anxious and staggering manner.
Following the most frightening energy ripple spreading over from the sky, the point where the two frightening energies collided with each other gradually calmed down. Finally, they slowly eliminated each other…
Everyone present sighed in relief upon seeing the frightening energy finally neutralize each other and scatter. The energy ripple from earlier was really too frightening. If a couple more were to arrive, it was likely that the entire Sky Scorpion Mountain Range would be completely razed…
The whistling wild wind and the surging clouds gradually calmed down following the gradual elimination of the energy. The black figure in the sky flashed and one could see the somewhat miserable looking Protector Tie appear.
Protector Tie emitted an intense dry cough after revealing himself. The black fog that covered his body immediately became much thinner. Clearly, that energy ripple from earlier had affected him quite greatly.
"Dammit, how could this fellow practice the 'God Seal Skill'? Just what is his background?" Protector Tie's eyes revealed some remaining fear as he studied Xiao Yan's figure in the distance. His expression was extremely ugly. The 'Hall of Souls' always had a rumor that one should be extremely cautious when meeting a person who practiced the 'God Seal Skill'. Moreover, most of the experts who practiced this Dou Technique had some great relationship with that mysterious ancient clan. It should be known that the ancient clan was something that even someone with an unfathomable strength, like the hall leader, was afraid of.
"Don't tell me that this fellow is from that ancient clan?" A thought that caused his heart to pound in fear appeared. Protector Tie's face also changed. There were not many fractions on this Dou Qi continent that caused the 'Hall of Souls' to feel fear. Other than the 'Pill Tower', this ancient clan was one of them!
"No wonder he is able to arrive at such a stage at such an age… dammit, I'm really unlucky. Why would I meet them here… forget it, I should leave first for today and make the decision another day after this fellow leaves…" Numerous thoughts flashed through Protector Tie's heart. His eyes once again looked in the distant sky toward the grayish-purple cage that did not have much activity. He clenched his teeth and immediately started to quickly retreat.
"You wish to leave?"
A cold laugh was instantly transmitted over as Protector Tie's body just moved back. A lovely figure immediately flashed over. The longsword in her hand was waved and a sharp sword aura that was over a hundred feet in size violently shot at Protector Tie.
Protector Tie waved his hand as he sensed the sharp wind that came from behind him. He waved his arm and a chain was hurriedly shot out. Finally, it collided with that blade aura. However, the chain was thrown off by the blade aura during this collision. That slightly weakened blade aura still shot toward Protector Tie in a straight line.
Panic surfaced in Protector Tie's heart as he sensed the weak feeling being transmitted by his body. The strange black ball he had used earlier exhausted a great amount of his energy. At this moment, he had undoubtedly landed into a disadvantageous position when compared with Medusa.
Protector Tie's body hurriedly withdrew. His arm trembled and a couple of enormous chains explosively shot out. Finally, they were like large black pythons that violently knocked into that blade aura. Only then did he resolve the remaining energy.
Medusa's body was suspended in the sky. Her eyes observed Protector Tie who needed to use two attacks to block her blade aura. She was slightly startled before immediately understanding the reason. The coldness in her eyes suddenly soared. She did not waste her breath as a majestic seven colored energy erupted from her body in all directions. It swiftly gathered above her head. An instant later, it transformed into a large seven colored python that was a couple of hundred feet in length.
This huge python's outer appearance was clearly no different from that of the 'Heaven Swallowing Python'. The only difference was that its size was larger than the 'Heaven Swallowing Python' from before. The fierce aura that spread over the place was at least a couple of times denser.
The enormous seven colored python that was gathered from Medusa's energy was just like a living 'Heaven Swallowing Python'. The dense feeling within those enormous eyes was life like, appearing as though it possessed an intelligence.
Medusa pointed her delicate finger and coldly cried when the enormous seven colored python was formed.
As her voice sounded, the 'Seven Colored Heaven Swallowing Python,' that lingered in the sky, swung its enormous tail. A large body rushed out like lightning in an instant and violently shot toward that Protector Tie.
Protector Tie's face became extremely ugly when he saw the 'Seven Colored Heaven Swallowing Python' basically transform into a seven colored ray of light that shot out. His face had become extremely ugly. With his current condition, how was it possible for him to receive this full force attack by the unhurt Medusa?
However, things had already developed until this point. Any other thoughts were pointless. Since he was unable to receive it, he could only flee.
Protector Tie did not hesitate when this thought flashed appeared in his head. He turned around and black fog surged over his body before he suddenly shot to the sky as a black-colored ray of light.
Medusa emitted a cold snort when she saw Protector Tie flee. She suddenly clenched her delicate hand. The space not far in front of Protector Tie suddenly became distorted. His fleeing figure had become much slowly because of it.
With the help of the obstruction of the distorted space, that enormous 'Seven Colored Heaven Swallowing Python' instantly arrived. After which, it emitted an earth-shaking hiss. It violently struck at Protector Tie with a terrifying energy!
Protector Tie turned his head in shock as he sensed the close frightening wind. He looked at the seven colored enormous python that was swiftly magnified in his eyes. A terror seeped out from deep within his heart.
Chapter 805: Capture!
An earth-shaking explosion suddenly resounded over the sky. At that moment, the entire Sky Scorpion Mountain Range violently trembled because of it. Some of the weaker people from both sides were shaken by this sudden thunder-like roar until threads of blood seeped from their ears.
The enormous seven colored energy agglomerated in the sky like clouds. Finally, it slowly scattered. The space was just like that of the surface of a calm lake after an enormous rock was thrown into it, stirring up a storm. On top of it, waves of visible energy ripples seeped out.
Xiao Yan paused in the sky while being supported by Zi Yan. The 'Sea Flipping Seal' from earlier had nearly exhausted all the Dou Qi within his body. Fortunately, the usage of the 'God Seal Skill' did not pose much requirements on his Spiritual Strength. Hence, the kind of dizzy condition after using the 'Angry Buddha Lotus Flame' did not appear.
Despite this, Xiao Yan's current condition was not good. His face was pale and his aura was weary. It was still somewhat hard for him to use the 'Sea Flipping Skill' with his current strength.
At this moment, Xiao Yan's and Zi Yan's eyes were focused on the seven colored energy in the sky that had scattered. Protector Tie had firmly received such a fierce strike from Medusa, and it was likely that his situation would not be good. Regardless of what happened, Xiao Yan possessed the thought that this fellow must die. Moreover, he had even recognized the 'God Seal Skill' that he had used. In order to avoid some trouble in the future, this fellow must not be allowed to leave!
A dense killing intent flashed across Xiao Yan's eyes as this thought appeared across his heart. He must not allow this person to remain!
The seven colored energy gradually spread under a countless number of gazes. At a certain moment, the rainbow like seven colored energy suddenly fluctuated. A miserable black figure immediately rushed out.
The black figure fled toward the northern sky with all his might the moment he appeared. Taking in his miserable appearance, he no longer possessed even a little of the prestige from earlier. Clearly, this Protector of the 'Hall of Souls' had already lost the right to be arrogant after suffering repeated setbacks.
Medusa, who had been observing the vicinity, sensed Protector Tie the moment the latter appeared. She merely laughed when she saw Protector Tie's fleeing manner. Her body moved and she transformed into a seven colored glow that shot forth before appearing in front of Protector Tie within a couple of flashes.
"I am someone from the 'Hall of Souls'. The 'Hall of Souls' will not let you off if you kill me!"
Protector Tie hurriedly reduced his speed. He put up a bold front as he cried out sternly the moment he saw Medusa.
At this moment, the black fog surrounding Protector Tie was extremely thin. His aura was similar to Xiao Yan's aura, where it was weary until an extremely weak degree. Clearly, the powerful strike by Medusa earlier had given this expert from the 'Hall of Souls' a heavy blow.
Medusa's eyes were ice-cold as they swept over Protector Tie. A faint ridicule surfaced in her eyes as she coldly laughed, "A dog that has lost its home…"
"Alright, alright, since you are unwilling to give up, this protector will fight with you until the both of us suffer!" Protector Tie angrily roared out upon being ridiculed by Medusa. Black fog swiftly brewed from his body. However, just as everyone thought that this fellow was about to unleash his final attack, his body suddenly turned, and he began to flee in another direction with the help of the black fog's cover.
Medusa's eyes mockingly observed the fleeing Protector Tie. She shook her head, clenched her delicate hand and a powerful suction forced suddenly erupted from her palm. Under this suction force, the latter's fleeing speed was instantly reduced. Medusa's body moved and appeared behind him before viciously delivering a palm to his back.
Protector Tie staggered back upon being struck by the palm. The black fog on his body became even thinner. Currently, it was likely that even an expert Dou Huang could easily finish him…
Medusa let out a cold laugh after seriously injuring Protector Tie. She extended her delicate hand and a powerful seven colored energy surged out, completely wrapping around Protector Tie like an energy cover.
The seven colored energy was like a lock that sealed Protector Tie within.Protector Tie had difficulty breaking the energy layer regardless of how he struggled. Hence, he could only emit a furious roar like that of a trapped beast.
Medusa's body moved while her delicate hand was holding onto the energy layer. She appeared in front of Xiao Yan within a couple of flashes.
"This fellow's injuries are too serious. He basically doesn't have much to retaliate with now. He is indeed much easier to deal with compared to that Protector Wu." Medusa dragged the energy layer in front of her, looked at Protector Tie within, and softly spoke.
Xiao Yan sighed in relief when he saw that this fellow did not escape. He had finally settled this fellow from the 'Hall of Souls' after spending so much effort.
"It is just that I did not expect this fellow to possess the strength to scream despite being so seriously injured." Medusa glanced at Protector Tie within the energy layer with some surprise. Her brows were slightly knit before her delicate hand moved. The energy layer swiftly shrank before finally adhering to Protector Tie's body. A 'chi chi' sound immediately appeared and the mouth of that Protector Tie emitted numerous sharp sounds.
Following the erosion of that seven colored energy, the black fog on Protector Tie's body grew increasingly thinner. A moment later, it completely disappeared. With the disappearance of this black fog that covered his exterior, the body of Protector Tie was finally revealed!
A somewhat illusionary spiritual body slowly drifted within the energy layer. However, this spiritual body appeared somewhat illusionary and transparent. It seemed to have entered a seriously injured state…
Xiao Yan and Medusa were stunned when they saw the original body of this expert protector from the 'Hall of Souls'.
"A spiritual body?" Xiao Yan was somewhat astounded as he studied the weak spirit of Protector Tie. No one expected this expert from the 'Hall of Souls,' who was comparable to that of someone from the Dou Zong class, to actually be a spiritual body.
"What is happening? Don't tell me that we have captured the wrong person?" Medusa was also extremely surprised as she said.
"No, that should not be the case…" Xiao Yan shook his head while wearing a solemn expression. He said, "Since the 'Hall of Souls' uses soul in its name and the targets that it captures are powerful spiritual bodies, this mysterious 'Hall of Souls' should have a great relationship with souls. Perhaps… some of the experts from the 'Hall of Souls' are originally spiritual bodies…"
"For example, the Protector Wu from the last time… ultimately never revealed his original body, hidden in the black fog…"
Medusa slightly frowned upon hearing this deduction by Xiao Yan. She clarified, "You mean that the 'Hall of Souls' uses spiritual bodies to deal with spiritual bodies?"
"Yes, there is a good chance of this. Ordinary Dou Qi is unable to cause a fatal blow to a spiritual body. If one wants to capture or deal with other spiritual bodies, the best hunter would be spiritual bodies who are in a similar state…" Xiao Yan spoke with a solemn expression.
"The 'Hall of Souls' will not let all of you off for killing me!" Protector Tie's eyes were fierce as he defied Xiao Yan and Medusa. Even though he had recently fallen into their hands, his tone was still quite aggressive.
"Relax, I will not kill you. I still have many things that I wish to learn from you…" Xiao Yan's hand extended into the energy layer. He touched the spirit Protector Tie without the slightest fear while speaking with a smile.
A denseness flashed across Protector Tie's eyes when he saw that Xiao Yan was actually so bold. He flicked his finger and a black colored chain, that had shrunk a lot, strangely appeared before shooting toward Xiao Yan's hand.
Xiao Yan let out a cold snort upon seeing this action of Protector Tie. He flicked his finger and an invisible flame suddenly appeared in his palm. It shot toward Protector Tie.
The 'Fallen Heart Flame' swiftly shot over before colliding with Protector Tie's spiritual body.
A dense white smoke and 'chi chi' sound suddenly appeared on the surface of Protector Tie's body when the invisible flame made contact with the latter's spirit. A sharp cry containing a bone deep pain resounded from his mouth.
"Dammit, what kind of flame is this? It is actually able to harm a spiritual body?"
Xiao Yan smiled and nodded only after seeing Protector Tie leaping up and down while being burned by that cluster of 'Fallen Heart Flame'. It seemed that this 'Fallen Heart Flame' was indeed able to harm a spiritual body. It was possible to harm a spiritual body as long as the energy or Dou Qi reached a certain degree of strength, but there was no doubt that the 'Fallen Heart Flame' was the one that could be considered the thing that a spiritual body was extremely afraid of or even terrified of.
The originally seriously injured Protector Tie suffered additional injuries while being burned by the 'Fallen Heart Flame'. His spirit was almost a transparent state. From the looks of it, he could be turned into a cluster of nothingness at any moment.
Xiao Yan waved his hand upon seeing that Protector Tie was about to turn into nothingness. That cluster of 'Fallen Heart Flame' slowly disappeared. A jade bottle was immediately taken out from his storage ring. With a wave of his hand, a suction force stuffed Protector Tie's spirit into the jade bottle. After which, an invisible flame slowly rose on his finger as it circled once around the surface of the jade bottle. Finally, the flame was used to seal the bottle's mouth.
"I will let him stay in it first. I will interrogate him about information regarding the 'Hall of Souls' once the matter here is settled."
Xiao Yan sighed in relief only after storing the jade bottle in his Storage Ring. As long as he captured this fellow, his aim for this trip had been successfully achieved. Moreover, now that he was aware that it was possible that some of the experts from the 'Hall of Souls' were spiritual bodies, the 'Fallen Heart Flame' in Xiao Yan's hand might well cause those fellows to truly suffer great losses.
"Are you alright?" Medusa knit her brows and inquired upon seeing Xiao Yan's pale-white face that contained a smile.
"Ke ke, it is just that too much of the Dou Qi within me has been exhausted. I didn't receive any injuries. As long as I rest a little, I will be able to recover…" Xiao Yan smiled and shook her head. His eyes studied Medusa before softly saying, "Thank you very much."
"If you had not exhausted him, it would not have been possible for me to subdue him so easily." Medusa slightly turned her head away and randomly spoke while she was under the focus of Xiao Yan's eyes.
Xiao Yan helplessly shook his head when he heard this. If Medusa had not delayed him earlier, where would he have found the time to use the 'Sea Flipping Seal,' a Dou Skill he was not familiar with?
Xiao Yan thought of this in his heart. He was about to speak when his face suddenly changed. His head was abruptly lifted, and his eyes moved to the grayish-purple colour space cage which had been void of activity for a long time. Some unusual fluctuations suddenly appeared there.
"Is the victor about to be decided?"
