Chapter 1612: A Bloody Battle Against the Evil Spirit (Two)
The blood-red mist was extremely evil, filled with a presence that could cause people to shiver without being physically cold. Within the blood-red mist, a bone-chilling coldness seemed to attack Jian Chen and the Spiritking. It penetrated their defensive glow and approached their skin before entering their bodies. Blood stopped flowing, and all signs of life were frozen wherever the coldness passed. Even their limbs became stiff.
At that moment, both of them felt stiff all over. Their movements became sluggish. Their battle prowess at Godhood was puny before the cold presence.
However, their expressions changed once again. They could feel the cold presence devour the signs of life in their bodies as well as their vital energies.
They experienced a feeling of weakness as their vitality and vital energies were devoured, which made their hearts sink. They knew that the evil power was extremely powerful, so powerful that it would be difficult for them to face it together. However, they had never expected it to be so terrifying. They had ready fallen into such a horrible position as soon as they came into contact with it.
Suddenly, Jian Chen roared and eighth layer Chaotic Force surged out of his chaotic neidan. He used his Chaotic Force to repel the icy presence. At the same time, the twin swords exploded with light, shining like two suns. The Qing Suo Sword expanded as it flew, growing to three thousand meters in length in a single moment. Under the control of Jian Chen's soul, it shot off as a resplendent streak of light, heading into the mist with a seemingly unstoppable force.
The attack from the Qing Suo Sword was enough to destroy worlds, but the thin-looking layer of mist only shook slightly before restabilizing. Not only had the attack failed to penetrate the mist around Jian Chen, but it had even failed to deal much damage at all.
At this moment, Jian Chen's eyes suddenly narrowed. He lowered his head to glance at the Primordial Godsilk, which he had been holding in his left hand for the entire time. It still had not shown any reactions. Determination flooded his eyes, gripping the Zi Ying Sword, his presence erupted as he cried out, "Daluo Sword!"
With that, a golden sword Qi rapidly condensed. The sword Qi possessed extremely terrifying power, causing the surrounding space to collapse from the attacks frightening pressure as soon as it had condensed. The sword Qi then shot out with a golden flash. It moved extremely quickly, seeming to break free from the restrictions of space. It appeared before the red layer of mist in a single moment and heavily slammed into it.
The golden sword Qi immediately disappeared after the collision. It turned into a terrifying force that tried to rip through the red mist. However, the mist possessed unimaginable power. It endured the attack, and despite churning violently, it showed no signs of dispersing.
Jian Chen coldly stared at the churning mist. Extending two fingers like a sword, he used the Daluo Sword once again. Immediately, a second strand of golden sword Qi condensed before his chest. It hurtled toward the red mist like a streak of lightning as well.
Both attacks were as powerful as attacks from a Godhood expert. The thin layer of mist finally gave way after enduring two Daluo Swords from Jian Chen; his attacks had ripped open a hole that was three meters wide. Jian Chen immediately charged through it.
At the same time, there was a boom nearby. The Spiritking had broken free from the cage-like red mist as well, charging out at the same time as Jian Chen.
"Hmm? You can actually break free? It's me who has underestimated you, but it doesn't matter. The outcome will all be the same. Sustenance will remain sustenance, buhahaha…"
An idea sweeped out with some surprise. The blood-red figure hovered nearby as it let out a demonic red light, which illuminated the surroundings and turned them blood-red. All the essence in the surroundings rapidly gathered. The figure was devouring the essence of the universe right now. The surrounding planets had their essence siphoned away as strands of energy. The planets withered at a visible rate. The stars themselves did not wither, but all forms of life on them were. In the end, the planets gradually became gray and lifeless.
Jian Chen and the Spiritking shivered when they saw the evil spirit use its ability to devour the lives of planets. At that moment, both of them became determined. They would prevent the evil spirit from approaching the Tian Yuan Continent. Otherwise, the Tian Yuan Continent would die and the World of Forsaken Saints would not be able to avoid the same fate.
"Taiyi Sword Technique!" Jian Chen called out. His body and soul fused with his sword, and he seemed to have become a sword himself. As he radiated with a surging presence, he made the surroundings collapse and the stars tremor. He shot toward the evil spirit as a resplendent streak of light, shining as bright as the sun.
"Form-breaker!" At the same time, the Spiritking's sword erupted with extremely dense origin energy. He used a sword technique that specialized in destroying anything with a form. He charged at the evil spirit with Jian Chen.
The evil spirit only raised its hand when it noticed their attacks. The moment it raised its hand, the mist suddenly converged into a huge hand that was completely blood-red. Although the huge hand was condensed from the red mist and should not have been physical, the hand had consolidated into something tangible. The evil spirit sent the hand toward Jian Chen and the Spiritking.
Colliding with the blood-red hand, Jian Chen and the Spiritking immediately produced heavy thuds. Both Jian Chen and the Spiritking felt like they had struck bedrock with their attacks, resulting in a powerful jolt. Not only had their attacks failed to damage the hand, but the hand had also struck them viciously, causing them to vomit blood and fly away in horrible shape.
The moment they came into contact with the hand, a sliver of an evil force penetrated their bodies and began devouring their vital energies. At the same time, the evil energy came into contact with the Primordial Godsilk in Jian Chen's left hand. When it invaded Jian Chen's body, it invaded the silk as well.
However, the moment the evil force invaded the Primordial Godsilk, the silk flickered with a golden luster. The flicker seemed to indicate the awakening of a vicious beast. Gradually, the Primordial Godsilk began to shine with more and more golden light. Instantly, the Primordial Godsilk became wrapped up in a soft glow. Its spiritual power had finally been awakened.
