Chapter 288: Ripped asunder
A murderous aura condensed around Han Shuo’s body nonstop. His pupils became a deep red, his expression extremely ferocious. The sinister, evil aura formed a bloody mist that rushed forward to swallow Leah Cain. The two meter long purple-red spellfire floated down eerily at a strange trajectory, like a large, beautiful feather fluttering in the wind.
Leah Cain, standing on the ground, was forced knee-deep into the dirt due to the powerful pressure from the explosion happening overhead. The violent reactions rang through his ears. An alternating force of two polar opposite powers, hot and cold, shrouded his brain. The strange force was like a ghost slipping through his pores before violently flooding his internal organs.
Leah Cain first shivered from the cold, feeling as if his body was frozen solid. A blazing hot current then coursed through his body like a volcano. The two hot and cold airs intermingled within, giving Leah Cain an extremely surreal and painful feeling.
“I’m going to tear you apart!” Leah Cain roared. The broadsword in his hand had gathered every fiber of silver light. He looked at Han Shuo, who happened to be standing indifferently in the air.
Han Shuo understood that Leah Cain’s strength was indeed extraordinary after exchanging blows with him. He hadn’t gained any advantage even after utilizing the full force of the bloodlust realm. If it weren’t for the Mystical Glacial Spellfire with the property of both fire and ice invading his body, Leah Cain wouldn’t have ended up so miserable after the attack either.
The previously dull broadsword suddenly burst with glaring light at the same moment. Icy awls, as sharp as needles, shot towards the sky in a drizzle, covering an area of about five meters. This attack had a terrifying penetration ability, in addition to its intensity. It pierced through the sky before disappearing in the blink of an eye.
A yin demon had transformed into a clone, replacing Han Shuo in the place where he’d been standing. As the icy awls pierced through that area, the invisible yin demon was also penetrated by a strange force. The violent fighting aura had coalesced into tiny shapes, unexpectedly possessing a particularly destructive force towards the yin demon. The yin demon was pierced through like a beehive, its presence fading to the extreme.
“What a terrifying attack!” Han Shuo couldn’t stop feeling horrified after landing.
While Han Shuo was shocked by Leah Cain’s attack, Leah Cain, the attacker himself, felt even more incredulous. He never expected Han Shuo to evade his strike.
“Bryan was the more formidable one here. If I didn’t see incorrectly, there were four Bryans just now. My gosh, truly miraculous!”
The whole audience burst into a hubbub after a moment of silence. All of the watching nobles, along with their followers, were discussing with surprise. Their faces was full of shock and excitement after seeing the astounding performance earlier.
“That Leah Cain is truly terrifying. According to the intelligence of Dark Mantle, he’d always used that arc of silver sword aura to gain the advantage before defeating his opponents in his recent fights over the years. It seems that his trademark move is the attack he’d just deployed, that dense drizzle of ice needles. I could feel the destructive force hidden within. I really didn’t expect this crude, brainless-looking Leah Cain to be hiding such a sinister and meticulous skill. Truly a terrifying person!”
“Of course, otherwise why would I spend so much effort on him?!” Candide was secretly taken aback, but still answered smugly after hearing Amyes’ words.
Leah Cain and Han Shuo now had some understanding of their opponent’s strength after such intense exchanges. The originally confident Han Shuo had to tread with more caution, and the dismissive Leah Cain had to put aside his arrogance and treat Han Shuo as his most powerful opponent thus far.
The two men just stood there, staring at each other without a word. After a span of ten breaths, Han Shuo’s lips curled into a grin, “Leah Cain, you’re going to die today without a doubt. Your attack just now was truly powerful. Unfortunately, it needs a long time to gather and moreover, exhausts a great deal of your fighting aura, doesn’t it?”
Han Shuo shot towards Leah Cain like a lightning bolt at that very moment. The Demonslayer Edge was flying one step ahead, like a snake baring its fangs and biting down on its prey. As Leah Cain used his broadsword to block, the Demonslayer Edge circled around to attack from the other side.
Two evil knights, five hate warriors, twenty zombies, seventy skeletal warriors, and two teams of thirty gargoyles had appeared. Leah Cain was entangled by the Demonslayer Edge and could only stare dumbly at the materializing dark creatures that had surrounded him.
“That’s right!” Candide nodded before drifting away with Amyes in the direction of the Imperial Palace.
Lurking underground, the earth elite zombie had grabbed Leah Cain’s ankles. The humble little skeleton then caused great injury to Leah Cain with a surreptitious ambush. The two evil knights trampled him to death afterwards. In the end, over a hundred dark creatures had rushed in and ripped him apart. There wasn’t a single bone left behind.
