Chapter 1002: Eliminating the Tiger King (Two)
The tiger king held nothing back with his palm strike toward the Winged Tiger God. It shot out with a great might that almost caused the surrounding space to shatter. However, the space suddenly froze in the next moment; the tiger king had used his Spatial Force to freeze it. This firmly immobilized the white tiger and prevented it from fleeing.
Although the white tiger was a Winged Tiger God, it was still a Class 7 Magical Beast after all. A huge gap existed between it and Class 8 Magical Beasts, so it was unable to go up against the Saint King tiger king with its current strength.
However, the reactions of the white tiger were in no way slow. It growled deeply and shot backward in the form of a white blur. It moved with lightning speed in this crucial moment. It retreated to twenty meters away. The frozen space of the tiger king was unable to trap it.
The tiger king’s attack missed. The terrifying energy explosion actually surpassed the endurance of the space there and immediately caused space to cave in. It formed a hole the size of a pot as the space around it distorted randomly.
A gleam of light immediately flashed across the tiger king’s eyes when he saw the Winged Tiger God break free from his frozen space. However, he did not stop at all. He pushed away the empty space and arrived before the white tiger with a single step. He swung his hand and the energy of the world began to condense quickly. Then, it formed a ten-meter-wide hand that grabbed at the white tiger.
The huge hand enveloped a region of space and locked the white tiger out of all possibilities and directions of escape.
The tiger king had moved extremely suddenly. Coupled with his great speed, Rum Guinness and the other Class 7 Magical Beasts in the surroundings had just noticed him. Their faces changed instantly when they saw that the tiger king wanted to kill the Winged Tiger God.
“How dare you, tiger king! The Winged Tiger God is the publicly acknowledged god of magical beasts. You are disrespecting the beast god. Have you betrayed us magical beasts?” Rum Guinness called out in panic. She spoke extremely sharply, before she lunged toward the tiger king regardless of the danger. She tried to stop him.
The peng king floated in place as he watched everything unfold. The light in his eyes constantly flickered. He was hesitating.
Many people among the elders of the Gilligan clan were confused. They did not know why the tiger king had suddenly attacked the Winged Tiger God, so they all became stunned there. They had never considered the possibility of the tiger king trying to kill the Winged Tiger God.
Only a small portion of them knew the truth to what had happened all those years ago, and the ape king was one of them.
“The tiger king is trying to kill our god. Elders, stop him with me,” the ape king called out, as he charged towards the tiger king first.
A few elders who did not know about the truth were astounded by the ape king’s words. Many of them immediately charged toward the tiger king despite the danger, as they wanted to stop the tiger king from laying his hands on the Winged Tiger.
The tiger king was a king of the Gilligan clan and possessed great prestige among the elders, but the Winged Tiger God was the god of magical beasts. It stood as a great god in the eyes of those elders, worthy of the respect and support of all magical beasts. As such, these elders had chosen to stand on the side of the Winged Tiger God given the situation without any second thought.
However, it was too late. The tiger king’s attacks were just too fast, and it was nowhere near something that the Class 7 Magical Beasts could block. The huge hand condensed by the tiger king had encased the white tiger completely and it quickly tightened its grasp. It tried to crush the white tiger to death forcefully.
At this moment, a devastating energy suddenly appeared. It flooded the sky, and its terrifying might and chilling presence surprised all the high class magical beasts in the mountain range.
Jian Chen suddenly appeared in this crucial moment. His left hand was around You Yue’s waist, while a layer of dark, beautiful Chaotic Force covered his right. He hurled the energy toward the tiger king’s condensed hand with lightning speed.
A deafening sound immediately erupted when the two supreme energies collided in mid-air. Terrifying residual energy rocked the surroundings and swept out in all directions in the form of a ripple.
The clash between Saint Kings was undoubtedly devastating. The surrounding space would immediately distort to its limit wherever the ripple of energy passed, as if it would cave in and shatter. Clouds of dust were kicked up into the air as the ground cracked. Ten whole mountains collapsed from the residual energy. Rock slides were triggered everywhere, which caused the ground to constantly shake as they produced rumbles.
Jian Chen easily dispersed the tiger king’s hand. The residual energy knocked the tiger king back, which caused him to backpedal a few steps. He became filled him with shock.
All the Class 7 Magical Beasts that had charged up in an attempt to stop the tiger king all came to a stop from the energy, before they retreated helplessly. Even Rum Guinness was affected.
Jian Chen punched out a second time to stop the incoming energy ripples and to prevent You Yue from being harmed.
The peng king stood several dozen meters away unmovingly. He stared at Jian Chen in interest and his heart finally settled. He could not help but smile as he thought, “Looks like I’ve been worrying too much. The Winged Tiger God really does have something to count on for coming to the depths of the Cross Mountains despite knowing that the tiger king wants to harm him.”
“How is this possible?! How can this be possible!? How did you become so strong in such a short amount of time!?” the tiger king cried out.
Jian Chen sneered, “Nothing is impossible. Tiger king, today will be the day you die.” With that, Jian Chen arrived before the tiger king. He slapped toward the tiger king’s chest with a palm full of destructive Chaotic Force. Jian Chen did not need to resort to the Emperor Armament when he fought an injured First Heavenly Layer Saint King.
The tiger king roared angrily and darkness-attributed energy surged wildly from him. His hands turned into huge tiger paws and clawed at Jian Chen’s hand.
Only when the claws came into contact with Jian Chen’s hand did the tiger king discover in shock that his full-powered attack could not harm Jian Chen at all.
Crack! In the next moment, the sound of bones breaking rang out clearly. The tiger king’s paws had already become bent. Jian Chen’s hand broke his paws when they collided.
The tiger king groaned deeply. The agony made him pale slightly. He glanced at Jian Chen in shock. Then, he immediately shot backward. He reappeared a hundred meters away.
“Impossible, impossible. This is impossible. When I saw you last time, you were only a mere Saint Ruler and could not even resist before me. Only ten years have passed, so how has your strength reached such a level?” The tiger king glanced past his broken arms and looked at Jian Chen. He became stunned as he murmured with a deep voice. He struggled to accept everything unfolding before his eyes.
