The distance between the two of them narrowed constantly.
Su Zimo’s figure started staggering, as though he was almost out of stamina.
Furthermore, the sequela of Dharmic Blood Escape seemed to be intense.
The Overlord of Levitating Goat Peak’s eyes were filled with mockery as he let out a cruel smirk.
It was as though he could see the panic, fear and helplessness on Su Zimo’s face right now…
However, in reality, Su Zimo’s back was against him.
If the Overlord of Levitating Goat Peak could see Su Zimo’s face right now, he would discover to his shock that there was no panic, fear or helplessness on this refined face the same way he had imagined!
Instead, there was only a single expression on that face – calmness!
The more dangerous the situation was, the more one needed to be calm.
The Overlord of Levitating Goat Peak was filled with killing intent. However, it was the same for Su Zimo’s eyes at that moment!
Given his capabilities, there was no way he could escape from the Overlord of Levitating Goat Peak at all.
His only shot at survival was to kill the Overlord of Levitating Goat Peak!
Killing an Overlord!
That was truly an ambitious thought!
Even for the other Overlords, they could not guarantee that they could kill an Overlord for sure, let alone a low-level fiend demon.
However, Su Zimo dared to harbor such thoughts!
The situation was not completely hopeless for him.
He was definitely not a match for the Overlord in head-on combat.
However, he had many trump cards.
Among them, one of the most important trump cards he had was the Divine Phoenix Bone that Die Yue left behind in his body!
Within the cultivation world, it was no longer a secret that he had a Divine Phoenix Bone within his body – many cultivators knew that.
Previously, Dao Being Xuan Yu of Great Qian Ruins tried to kill Su Zimo in the Great Qian Ruins. At that time, he even avoided the Divine Phoenix Bone intentionally and severed Su Zimo’s wrist.
However, the Overlord of Levitating Goat Peak was none the wiser!
He did not even know Su Zimo’s background properly, let alone know about the existence of the Divine Phoenix Bone!
If the power of the Divine Phoenix Bone was triggered, it would definitely be enough to threaten the Overlord of Levitating Goat Peak’s life!
This was a massive gambit.
Naturally, if he won the gambit everything would be fine.
However, Su Zimo would die if he lost it!
He had no other choice.
Even with an utmost treasure like the Divine Phoenix Bone, it was extremely difficult for him to want to kill an Overlord.
The only way he could succeed was if the other party was careless!
Therefore, the sweat on Su Zimo’s body and his signs of exhaustion were all faked.
His aim was to lull the Overlord of Levitating Goat Peak into a false sense of security.
The Overlord of Levitating Goat Peak was not wrong – Dharmic Blood Escape did have an immense toll on Su Zimo and severe sequelae as well.
However, there was something he had missed out on.
Su Zimo had just exited the Blood Sea and there was a tremendous amount of bloodline energy within his body!
Su Zimo’s body was almost filled to the brim. The amount of energy could not be released within a short period of time and was rampaging through his body wildly.
His body would explode if this continued on!
On the contrary, Dharmic Blood Escape provided an avenue for that energy to be released.
Therefore, this was the bloodline energy burned up by Dharmic Blood Escape and Su Zimo was almost completely unaffected!
The distance between them closed up constantly!
Su Zimo did not make a move still and his gaze turned increasingly cold.
The Overlord of Levitating Goat Peak did not attack either.
To him, Su Zimo was already a dead person. He was in no hurry and even had thoughts of playing with the other party as he closed in constantly.
In the blink of an eye, they were 50 feet apart!
This was a relatively close distance.
However, Su Zimo held it in and continued to bide his time.
He wanted to wait for a perfect opportunity to launch a lethal attack on the Overlord of Levitating Goat Peak!
30 feet… 20 feet…
The distance between the two of them was ten feet now.
It was a reachable distance!
Right then, a ruthless glint flashed through Su Zimo’s eyes as he spun around. His scarlet hair danced and he roared furiously at the Overlord of Levitating Goat Peak with a lightning gaze!
Behind Su Zimo, an illusory phantom of a dragon appeared and coiled into the air.
He had actually let out an earthshaking dragon roar!
At the same time, Su Zimo’s right eye shone with a bedazzling glow. It intensified and burst forth instantly like a blazing sun!
He had released a vocal and visual technique at the same time!
These two secret skills had instantaneous release times and were Su Zimo’s greatest trump cards.
There was no way to defend against them at this distance!
If it was any other high-level fiend demon, they might have been flustered or even severely injured against such a sudden move.
However, Su Zimo was facing an Overlord!
The Overlord of Levitating Goat Peak frowned.
In a flash, he raised his palm and shielded himself, blocking the incoming scorching beam of light in midair by a hair’s breadth.
Green smoke rose from the Overlord of Levitating Goat Peak’s palm.
Illumination Eye was frighteningly strong and even managed to burn the Overlord of Levitating Goat Peak’s flesh.
However, the beam of light dissipated the moment it came into contact with the bloodline of an Overlord as well!
The two secret skills were dispelled by the Overlord of Levitating Goat Peak with ease and he only suffered flesh wounds!
In all fairness…
The moment he heard that bright dragon roar, there was a hint of hesitance within the heart of the Overlord of Levitating Goat Peak.
The Dragon race was one of the Primordial Nine Races.
Although the bloodline of the Dragon before him was impure and was only a remnant beast, this was still not somebody he could afford to trifle with!
However, the Overlord of Levitating Goat Peak made his decision swiftly.
The feud between them was already set.
If he let Su Zimo off this time round, it was no longer letting a tiger return to its mountain – he would truly be letting a dragon return to the sea!
As long as he killed this demon and erased every single trace of evidence, the Dragon race wouldn’t be able to say anything even if they came knocking.
Furthermore, anybody from the Dragon race would definitely possess a ton of treasures.
If he made use of them properly, this would be an immense opportunity for him!
If he could drink the blood, eat the flesh and consume the marrow of a Dragon, he might become the first Grand Demon among the seven Overlords!
The gaze of the Overlord of Levitating Goat Peak burned slightly.
The moment the two secret skills were released, Su Zimo’s eyes narrowed and he suddenly extended his right hand in the shape of a claw to grab the Overlord of Levitating Goat Peak’s face!
He had already expected that his vocal and visual technique might not be able to hurt the Overlord of Levitating Goat Peak.
Those two secret skills were only distractions.
His Divine Phoenix Bone was his true killing move!
However, the Overlord of Levitating Goat Peak was none the wiser.
To him, Su Zimo’s grab posed no threat at all and was more like the final struggle of a dying beast.
“Are you giving up?”
The Overlord of Levitating Goat Peak sneered and said in an unhurried and patient manner, “I heard that you have a strong physique and you’re extremely ferocious in melee combat. I’ll let you witness the meaning of true strength today!”
Instead of avoiding or retreating, the Overlord of Levitating Goat Peak punched forward violently towards Su Zimo’s extended palm!
The fist and palm connected!
An incomparably domineering power struck Su Zimo’s right hand and fresh blood splattered everywhere – his palm turned into a mess of flesh and blood instantly!
However, that amount of power triggered the Divine Phoenix Bone in his right hand as well!
In midair, the sinister cry of a Phoenix echoed, piercing through metal and rock with a boundless might!
A Dragon’s roar and a Phoenix’s cry.
Both of them sounded from this person at the same time!
Where did that Phoenix’s cry come from?
Instantly, the Overlord of Levitating Goat Peak’s gaze flickered and he felt a sense of uneasiness.
Immediately after, he experienced a shuddering aura that seemed like it could incinerate all life and destroy everything in the world!
