Chapter 1613: A Bloody Battle Against the Evil Spirit (Three)
As Jian Chen was blown back, his body crackled all over. The sounds came from his bones, and with a few crisp cracks, some of his bones snapped. The evil presence remained within his body, devouring his vital energies and life force, causing his own presence to rapidly weaken. The evil presence was extremely powerful, where even his Chaotic Body at the eighth layer struggled to stop its rampage.
The Spiritking suffered similar wounds. His body was covered in blood and many of his bones were broken. The life and vital energies in his body were rapidly being devoured by the evil presence, causing his own presence to weaken as well.
"What cultivation realm has the evil power reached? It's so powerful. How are we supposed to defeat it?" The Spiritking was astounded. He had gained an even clearer understanding of the evil spirit's strength from the clash just then. It was an undefeatable existence. It had already surpassed Deity, or it would not have heavily injured both him and Jian Chen so easily.
Jian Chen was also filled with despair. He had never underestimated the evil spirit, but only not that he had truly fought against it did he understand just how powerful it was. The evil spirit was so terrfying that even if he refined his Profound Sword Qi, he still might not have been its opponent.
At this moment, Jian Chen saw a ball of dazzling golden light, which immediately made his eyes narrow. He glanced at the Primordial Godsilk in his left hand, and only now did he discover, to his joy, that the power hidden within the Primordial Godsilk had begun to awaken.
Flames of hope immediately reignited in his downcast heart due to the awakening of the Primordial Godsilk. At the same time, strands of powerful silk radiated out and circulated through Jian Chen's body. Wherever they passed by, the evil presence would immediately disperse.
The silk's power was not particularly great and it did not possess any powerful defensive properties, but it just happened to be the bane of the evil presence. The Primordial Godsilk was created exactly for this crisis, so it was fated to fend off this crisis.
As the evil presence was purged, Jian Chen immediately felt his body lighten. His weakening presence gradually strengthened. However, the vital energies and life force that had been absorbed earlier completely vanished. None of them were left behind, so Jian Chen still felt a sense of weakness, as if his power had been drained.
"I understand now. The Primordial Godsilk requires the stimulation of the evil power to awaken what is hiding inside." Jian Chen's eyes lit up. Without any hesitation, he immediately used the origin energy from Class 9 Radiant Saint Force to heal himself. He then quickly arrived before the Spiritking and pressed the Primordial Godsilk against his body, having the silk purge the evil presence from the Spiritking as well.
"What is this treasure? It's so effective." The Spiritking immediately became surprised when he sensed the evil presence within him vanish. He stared at the glowing silk with great interest.
"This is a sacred object for repelling the crisis. Whether we can survive will all depend on it. Shen Jian, you stand guard here. I'll go and use this to deal with it." Jian Chen gave a simple explanation. He then tightly gripped the Primordial Godsilk with his left hand and used the Linear Lightning Release with his right hand. He shot toward the evil spirit as a bolt of lightning at an unbelievable speed.
The golden light from the Primordial Godsilk became brighter and brighter and more and more resplendent as Jian Chen rapidly approached the evil spirit. There was a slight, desolate ray of yellow light among the golden glow as well. It was the Xuanhuang Qi the Primordial Godsilk had absorbed from the Xuanhuang Microcosm.
"What a detestable presence. I hate this presence. Food, go die…"
An idea pulsed from the evil spirit. It carried a feeling of irritation. The presence from the Primordial Godsilk made the evil spirit feel uneasy. It felt greatly threatened and subconsciously wanted to avoid the Primordial Godsilk.
However, the evil spirit was rather clever as well. In its eyes, both Jian Chen and the Spiritking were only food. It would not be frightened away by food. Its body immediately dispersed and turned into a sea of blood that blotted out the sun. It wrapped around Jian Chen as a huge net. This time, the evil spirit used all its power. Not only did it want to devour Jian Chen, but it also wanted to devour the Primordial Godsilk, which it felt threatened by.
Jian Chen entered a world of blood. He held the Primordial Godsilk as electricity crackled around him. He shot through the bloody world as a lightning bolt, crossing several hundred kilometers in a single moment. He moved unbelievable fast. Wherever he moved, the surrounding liquid disappeared, evaporating away and leaving a long tunnel behind him. Of course, the disappearance of the liquid had nothing to do with him. It was all because of the Primordial Godsilk, which had absorbed all of the liquid.
It was just that the blood-like liquid seemed endless. Jian Chen shot through the liquid at the speed of lightning, so fast that he could traverse several hundred kilometers in a single moment, but he still did not break free from the liquid even after he finished casting the Linear Lightning Release.
"What is this? It's devouring my power." A mental pulse from the evil spirit rang in Jian Chen's head at this moment. It was furious.
"I am the lord of devouring. There isn't anything in the universe I can't devour. Everything is my sustenance, yet you devour my power. Let's see who devours who in the end," the evil spirit roared. The sea of blood that it had formed began to churn because of its roar. It had turned into a huge whirlpool that rapidly swirled. Jian Chen just happened to be at its center.
Jian Chen felt the life and vital energies in his body drain away at an unbelievably rapid rate as soon as the whirlpool formed. In an instant, he had lost as much as a tenth of his life force and vital energies. The feeling of weakness became even greater as strands of gray hair appeared in his black hair.
Jian Chen was shocked. The evil power devoured just too quickly. With his current strength, he was helpless against the devouring force. He was a sitting duck, waiting to be butchered. He could last half a minute at most before he would pass away from losing all his life force.
The Primordial Godsilk seemed to be stimulated even more. The power hidden inside began to fully awaken. It radiated a dazzling golden light, which was the bane of the evil spirit. The evil spirit was extremely powerful, but it could do nothing about the light. On the other hand, Jian Chen became enveloped by the golden light and he felt like he had entered a whole different world. He was completely cut off from outside. The devouring force from the evil spirit could not get to him.
The Primordial Godsilk that had been woven into armor began to unweave itself, turning into long strands of golden silk that stabbed into the depths of the sea of blood. They let out blinding, resplendent lights as all the power sleeping inside was awakened.
The sea of blood immediately began to churn. The evil spirit furiously roared as it spoke through mental pulses.
"This damned presence is suppressing me. God dammit. If I hadn't wasted so much power on that bastard, how would this damned presence keep me suppressed, let alone injure me?" The evil spirit angirly bellowed. The sea of blood rapidly began to shrink and no longer seemed to be under the evil spirit's control. Strands of golden light would flash in the sea of blood as it violently churned.
