Chapter 1714: Jian Chen Steps In
"No, my origin energy hasn't vanished. It has been sealed up by a mysterious power. W- w- what is this power? It actually possesses such a mysterious might. A mere mid Deity can actually seal up the origin energy of a powerful God," thought Lu Tian. The mysterious power hidden within his dantian was extremely strange. He had never seen something like this even after living for so long.
"As long as the origin energy hasn't vanished for now reason, then it's fine. Otherwise, it would just be far too terrifying. It's much easier to deal with a seal," Lu Tian was relieved at the same time. When he discovered that his origin energy had suddenly vanished, he had leapt in fright.
"Form-breaker!" Shen Jian became rather pale, but his battle intent remained just as great. He took the initiative and charged towards Lu Tian. His presence surged as he turned into a streak of light.
"Hmph. Shen Jian, I'll let you witness my true strength," Lu Tian said coldly. Extending a finger towards the sky, Laws of Fire immediately began to condense from the surroundings. It formed a raging sea of fire above his head instantly.
"Firecloud Meteor!" Lu Tian called out, and the sea of fire surged above his head. In the end, it condensed into five head-sized fireballs. Each ball of fire contained surging power as they radiated with terrifying pressure.
Swish! In the next moment, one of the five fireballs shot off like a comet with a tail towards Shen Jian as it pulsed with energy.
Shen Jian showed no fear as his Cloudstream sword shot towards the fireball as if it was unstoppable.
The fireball immediately exploded as the violent flames dyed the sky red. The terrifying heat permeated the surroundings, scorching the ground while the barrier around the Mo clan in the distance shook heavily.
"Lu Tian has actually used a battle skill…"
"Shen Jian is so powerful He actually forced Lu Tian to use a battle skill…"
"What power. That's a fourth grade Truth Tier Battle Skill at the very least…"
The elders of the Mo clan all cried out, while the patriarch stared at Shen Jian nervously. He was fraught with worry.
Blood spurted from Shen Jian's mouth as he was blown away like a cannonball. His clothes were turned to ashes silently.
"Shen Jian, you possess the right to fight me, but it's only the right. If I exert my full strength, killing you will still be a piece of cake." Four balls of fire burned above Lu Tian. Each fireball radiated with immense power.
"However, you should be able to die without regrets for forcing me into using a battle skill," Lu Tian said coldly. He extended a finger towards Shen Jian in the distance, and two of the fireballs above him immediately whistled away.
Shen Jian became extremely grim as he faced the two incoming fireballs. It was a battle skill a God cast, so he would be doomed if he was even slightly carelessness.
Suddenly, Shen Jian's Cloudstream sword began to tremble violently. He called out, "A Will that Splits the Heavens: The Sword Shakes and Stars Shatter!" With that, the Cloudstream sword emitted several pulses, which stacked together and expanded towards the two incoming fireballs. Wherever the pulse passed by, all the origin energy in the area would begin to disperse, actually directly reduced to nothingness by the pulse.
When the pulse and the fireballs collapsed, the fireballs immediately slowed down. The pulse struck the fireballs, and they trembled as the Laws of Fire inside rapidly weakened.
However, the two fireballs still managed to charge beyond the pulse in the end and collided with Shen Jian.
However, the fireballs did become much weaker after the obstruction of the pulse.
The fireballs struck Shen Jian firmly, exploding loudly and brightly.
Shen Jian spat out another mouthful of blood as he was blown away once again. All his organs had disintegrated, while his skin had been charred black. He was heavily injured. If it were not for his technique that weakened the two fireballs, he probably would have passed away from the attack even with his mid God comprehension of laws and his protective layer of light. Ultimately, he was only a mid Deity.
After all, this was a battle skill a God employed, and it was of quite a high grade. It was at the fourth grade of the Truth Tier at the very least, so its power was obviously terrifying.
"Hmm? You're actually still not dead? However, you'll die soon anyway. Shen Jian, no one can save you today," Lu Tian said coldly. He radiated with heavy killing intent as the two last fireballs whistled off as well, flying towards Shen Jian mercilessly.
Mo Ling roared out from afar; he wanted to try to save Shen Jian, but his two opponents had him firmly trapped. He was unable to break free.
The elders in the Mo clan all panicked, but they were helpless against the attack as well. They would probably be burnt to a crisp before they could even approach the fireballs.
Shen Jian gritted his teeth as determination flooded his eyes. The first move of A Will that Splits the Heavens was not enough to stop Lu Tian's battle skill, but that was not the only move he knew. He also knew the second move. However, it was just too powerful. Despite reaching mid Deity, he still had not mastered it. If the first move's power was equivalent to a star, then the second move was equivalent to an entire galaxy. He would have to pay an extremely heavy price to use the second move.
At this point, he had already run out of options in the face of Lu Tian's battle skill. He could only use the second move, The Sword Extends and Galaxies Extinguish!
However, just when Shen Jian was prepared to use this move, the surrounding temperature plummeted. In the blink of an eye, it went from something akin to a land of lava to a cavern of ice. Snow filled the skies.
"It's the Flying Snow sword!" The patriarch's face lit up. He suddenly turned towards the seventh hall.
Just when the patriarch looked over, a flash of light quickly shot out at an unbelievable speed. It shot through the barrier of the Mo clan and headed towards the two fireballs with a seemingly unstoppable force.
"So quick!" The patriarch shivered inside. Even with his strength, he failed to catch a glimpse of the light clearly. He only managed to capture a blurry image of a sword within the light with his soul. It was the same sword that he had bought from Maple Leaf City, which he had then gifted to Jian Chen.
The Flying Snow sword directly stabbed through the two fireballs and the fireballs exploded in the sky brightly. Terrifying ripples of energy permeated the surroundings, where even early Deities would become heavily injured if they entered the region without any protective treasures.
The Flying Snow sword continued onwards without weakening at all. It was enveloped by Laws of the Sword that far exceeded the level of early God, directly ignoring the terror of the sea of flames and arriving before Lu Tian in a single moment.
Lu Tian's face changed drastically, and he immediately shot backwards to dodge. However, even after using his full strength, he was still too late. The Flying Snow sword had swept past his shoulder and left behind a smear of blood.
Lu Tian felt a heart-wrenching pain from his left arm, and the entire limb fell out of the sky. It had been separated from his body.
Lu Tian was extremely shocked. He had not even seen his opponent. Just a single sword had come flying over, smashing through his battle skill and claiming his arm. Just what kind of power did its owner possess?
