The handsome man in faint gold robes strode over unhurriedly. His eyes resembled stars and he possessed an indescribable confidence.
Ouyang Xiayu rode on her Green Luan and was speeding with all her might to escape from the Great Qian Ruins. When she caught sight of that person, she was stunned for a moment.
Immediately, she shuddered and her eyes shone with disbelief.
“Fellow Daoist Ouyang, how have you been?”
The handsome man smiled gently without retreating or evading. When he saw the Green Luan speeding over, he welcomed it instead!
Under countless watchful stares, the handsome man extended his jade-white palm and raised it, pressing down gently on the void before him.
The Green Luan was moving at such a fast speed that it looked like a streak of light. However, it came to a stop immediately!
Su Zimo could clearly notice the Green Luan shivering slightly.
That pure-blooded ferocious beast was in fear!
Demon beasts had extremely sharp senses towards danger.
The reason why the Green Luan reacted as such was because it sensed an immense threat coming from the handsome man!
Against the handsome man, the Green Luan lowered its head motionlessly, as though it did not dare to look the handsome man in the eyes.
All the cultivators were shocked when they saw that.
Who was that man who was able to subdue a pure-blooded ferocious beast merely by extending his palm without the use of any weapons?
Some cultivators shifted their gazes towards the sect badge on the handsome man’s waist.
Those who recognized the background of the handsome man could not help but shudder in fear.
Taba Feng had a thoughtful expression.
Even with his arrogant and overbearing personality, he shook his head at the moment and sighed gently. “To think that even he would make a move for the Vermilion Fruit.”
“The number one Perfected Being of the North Region 30 years ago, Xi Wuya!” Murong Wushuang narrowed her gaze and uttered word by word.
Enduring her internal injuries, Ouyang Xiayu stood up and greeted with cupped fists. “Greetings, Fellow Daoist Xi.”
“Anyone from the North Region who would try and kill Fellow Daoist Ouyang is truly someone who doesn’t know how to cherish women,” Xi Wuya said with a smile.
Ouyang Xiayu turned around and glared at Su Zimo spitefully.
It was only until that moment that Xi Wuya’s gaze shifted to Su Zimo.
Su Zimo was expressionless and his gaze was deep, staring at Xi Wuya who was not far away peacefully without the slightest hint of fear in his eyes!
Smiling, Xi Wuya walked over slowly.
At that moment, everyone noticed that there was a strange cultivator who was following Xi Wuya indifferently.
That person was only at early-stage Golden Core and wore luxurious robes with a mask. Any part of his skin that was exposed was covered, revealing only his eyes.
For some reason, when Su Zimo swept his gaze across the masked cultivator, he had a strange, indescribable feeling.
In the blink of an eye, Xi Wuya had already closed in.
Su Zimo felt his hairs stand on end!
He finally understood how the Green Luan felt.
Xi Wuya gave off a terrifying aura that was absolutely chilling!
Scanning his surroundings, Xi Wuya asked nonchalantly, “Who plucked the Vermilion Fruit?”
Nobody answered him.
Swoosh, swoosh, swoosh!
However, everyone fixed their gaze on Su Zimo.
Su Zimo naturally knew that he wouldn’t be able to hide the affair – nor did he want to – so he admitted to it readily.
Xi Wuya nodded. “Hand over the Vermilion Fruit and commit suicide now. At least, that will ensure you die with a full corpse.”
Su Zimo first chuckled before breaking out into a roaring laughter.
Taba Feng suddenly remarked, “Be careful, Fellow Daoist Xi, this is the outrageous monster incarnate of Divine Phoenix Island who has gotten so much fame lately! Back at the Human Emperor’s Palace, he defeated all the paragons there! Most of the paragons who died today died in his hands as well.”
The monster incarnate of Divine Phoenix Island!
At the mention of that title, Xi Wuya laughed.
A look of pity and mockery could be seen in his eyes.
“What a pity,”
Xi Wuya looked at Su Zimo and sighed gently. “You’re about to die today.”
“By the likes of you?”
“By the likes of me.”
Both of them exchanged gazes with raring battle intent – neither of them backed off.
Hushed discussions broke out in the crowd as well.
“What a pity for the monster incarnate of Divine Phoenix Island. There’s no way he could be a match for Xi Wuya now that his spirit energy is expended.”
“That’s right. Perhaps there might be a fight if he was in his peak condition. But now…”
“Nonsense, even if he is in his peak condition, the monster incarnate of Divine Phoenix Island is definitely not a match for Xi Wuya!”
Before the discussions disappeared, the fight broke out!
Xi Wuya did not move at all but two divine beams of light burst forth from his shining eyes. Everywhere they passed, the void would tremble!
Some of the cultivators who were hiding far away and caught unaware yelped and covered their eyes.
They were nearly blinded just by watching the fight!
Standing opposite Xi Wuya, Su Zimo did not move at all and a demonic glint shone in his eyes.
After cultivating the Mystic Classic of the Twelve Demon Kings of the Great Wilderness, Su Zimo’s eye power was frightening.
Xi Wuya’s visual secret skill could not injure Su Zimo or affect his mental state at all!
Stepping on the ground with one feet, Xi Wuya leaped into the air and hurled out a punch towards Su Zimo who was in midair!
His gripped fist looked like a glass with rainbow colors and shone in a bedazzling manner!
Rather than a punch, it was more like a blazing sun!
Su Zimo strode forward fearlessly as well and extended his arm which was filled with green veins. Gripping his fist like a seal, he clashed against the incoming punch!
There was a deafening bang and the ground shook while the mountains quaked.
Endless resplendent light exploded and shone down from midair like fireworks.
In the fireworks, two figures that were fighting with one another attracted everyone’s gazes.
Both of them were body tempered cultivators and were fighting in melee combat with their incomparably strong bodies!
With every clash, the underground palace would quake once.
The power produced by the both of them was way too great.
Even just by clashing their bodies and bloodlines, it was enough to send fear in the many cultivators who were watching!
“That monster incarnate of Divine Phoenix Island is so frightening.”
“That’s right. Even after killing countless people in a clash against all the paragons of the North Region while killing most of the paragons of the ten upper sects and four gentry clans, he still has the strength remaining to fight against Xi Wuya!”
“Xi Wuya hasn’t used his trump card yet nor has he released his full strength. The moment he does that, this monster incarnate of Divine Phoenix Island is dead for sure!”
In reality, the toll on Su Zimo was great indeed.
The spirit energy in his dantian had already dried up after fighting all the paragons and releasing two great phenomenons.
Even without his spirit energy, Su Zimo was still extremely frightening!
The burst of his body alone was something that most Golden Cores wouldn’t be able to withstand!
At that moment, Su Zimo was fighting fiercer and fiercer.
Up till this point of his cultivation, it was rare for him to encounter a cultivator who could compare with him in terms of body tempering.
However, at that moment, Xi Wuya had conflicted feelings in his heart.
Glass Palace was the sect that was best versed in body tempering in the entire Tianhuang Mainland.
At its ultimate level, Glass Palace’s secret skill could even kill ancient remnant beasts and subdue pure-blooded ferocious beasts!
Up till this point of his cultivation, Xi Wuya had never encountered anyone who could match him in melee combat. But now, he was extremely troubled after meeting Su Zimo.
This successor of Divine Phoenix Island had actually managed to cultivate his bloodline to the tsunami blood realm!
What was even more terrifying was that the melee combat techniques released by the successor of Divine Phoenix Island were extremely tricky. Tough and gentle at the same time, they resembled an anaconda coiling a massive mountain; a spirit monkey scaling a cliff!
In fact, there were a couple of times when he felt that his life was threatened!
