Chapter 1616: A Bloody Battle Against the Evil Spirit (Six)
Jian Chen's heart suddenly sank when the evil spirit's thought expanded. His face became extremely ugly. The evil spirit did not actually disperse after the terrifying explosion and now that the Primordial Godsilk had snapped, how could he and the Spiritking face the evil spirit's power?
But very soon, Jian Chen's eyes narrowed. He stared at the blood-red figure that stood near the gaping black hole. He could clearly sense that the evil spirit had become much weaker after the explosion that was similar to self-destruction. Jian Chen still felt a great threat from it, but it was no longer undefeatable like before.
Jian Chen felt like the evil spirit was now an enemy he could realistically fight.
Jian Chen's eyes immediately lit up. Under the recovery powers of the Radiant Saint Force and his Chaotic Body, Jian Chen healed at a rapid rate. However, he did not waste time continuing to heal. Before he had fully recovered, a surging presence radiated from his body. The twin swords shone brightly as well. He gripped the Zi Ying Sword tightly with his bloodied hand and seemed to turn into a great sword himself. A violet light engulfed him, and he shot off as a stream of light, stabbing towards the evil spirit with lightning speed.
As he rapidly approached the black hole, the force of suction grew more and more powerful. It could devour planets, light, and all energies and objects, but it was unable to devour Jian Chen or the light from the twin swords. With Jian Chen's strength, he could ignore the force of suction completely. No matter how closely he approached the black hole, he could break free easily.
He was only at Reciprocity, but his battle prowess had reached Godhood, making him a god-like existence in the lower world. He was so powerful that he could shake the world and annihilate stars.
At the same time, the Spiritking also noticed that the evil spirit had weakened. Without any hesitation, he charged towards the evil spirit with lightning speed as well.
From afar, Jian Chen and the Spiritking seemed to have become two bright comets. The resplendent light from their swords filled outer space with colour. They charged towards the huge hole in space with devastating power. Wherever they passed by, they would leave behind great cracks in space, creating a river of darkness.
The evil spirit became angered when it sensed Jian Chen and the Spiritking's intentions. It roared out loudly. The roar turned into a thought that wreaked havoc through space. In its eyes, both Jian Chen and the Spiritking were only food. Since they were food, they should have waited for it to slowly enjoy them, yet not only had the food weakened it such an extent, they had tried to resist time and time again. To the evil spirit, this was a naked provocation, something it could not accept.
The evil spirit's humanoid figure suddenly dispersed and turned into a ball of dense red mist. The mist spun rapidly, drawing over all the essence in the surroundings. It did not just absorb the essence of the universe, but the energy in the surroundings as well. It had directly engaged in a fight against the black hole. Jian Chen and the Spiritking could sense their vitality become unstable as they rapidly shot over as well; it was like the whirlpool the evil spirit had formed was drawing their vitality from their bodies.
The evil spirit possessed a natural ability of devouring. Without the restraint of the Primordial Godsilk, it demonstrated this ability once again.
If the evil spirit was in its peak condition, Jian Chen and the Spiritking would fail to resist at all if it wanted to devour Jian Chen and the Spiritking's vitality. However, it had weakened drastically after exploding, even though it had evaded death, its current strength neared Jian Chen and the Spiritking's. As a result, it was extremely difficult for the evil spirit to devour both of their vitality. In the end, the devouring force failed to approach the two of them under their full resistance.
"Godammit. It's all because that damned bastard's made me consume too much power. If it weren't for him, I would have never ended up like this, where I can't even devour food. If I were in my peak condition, that damned presence would not have been able to do anything to me at all," the evil spirit roared out in resentment. As soon as it thought of that bastard, it would grind its teeth in hatred.
A massive blood-red fist condensed when the evil spirit released a mental pulse, which shot towards Jian Chen and the Spiritking with devastating might. The fist was extremely large, and it engulfed the two of them as soon as it appeared.
"Linear Lightning Release!" Jian Chen bellowed out and used the same technique again. Lightning immediately began to crackle around him, and his speed skyrocketed. He shot towards the blood-red fist as a bolt of lightning. This was one of the most powerful techniques he had grasped so far. However, it was so fast that even Jian Chen had to face some risks; after all, the huge, black hole was right in front of him. As he moved so fast that he could not control himself, he could end up directly charging into the black hole if he was carelessness.
However, he had no other choice. He could already see the evil spirit devouring energy to recover. He needed to personally stop the attack and let the Spiritking heavily injure the evil spirit. Otherwise, the evil spirit would be even more difficult to deal with once it recovered some strength. They might even end up losing their hope for victory.
Jian Chen collided heavily with the blood-red fist. The electricity around him flickered a few times before dispersing completely. Jian Chen vomited blood; the attack had blown him away. His organs had turned to mush at that moment, and most of his bones had broken. He had already suffered heavy injuries, and this just worsened his condition.
On the other hand, the blood-red fist began to collapse rapidly as well. Jian Chen had paid a heavy price to stop the evil spirit's attack.
The collapse of the blood-red fist removed all obstacle before the Spiritking. He shot into the evil spirit's whirlpool as a resplendent stream of light.
"A Will that Splits the Heavens: The Sword Extends and Galaxies Extinguish!"
The Spiritking's voice rang out from the evil spirit's whirlpool. His voice was sharp and swift, like an angry roar. There was a tinge of craziness within it, as well as tremendous pain that was evident to anyone.
The blood-red whirlpool began to tremble violently. A blurry star chart seemed to have conjured within the whirlpool, erupting with endless power. It was utterly devastating, where just a single strand of its presence could cause annihilate large swathes of space.
