The people of 'Dominating Heaven Dojo' were aware of the peerless magical powers and the top-notch martial arts prowess of their lord. Therefore, they were left in extreme shock when they saw that Ye Xiwen had turned out to be a match for him. However, the bystanders didn't have the same opinion. They also agreed that a Great Sage expert wasn't the way they had expected them to be. In fact, they had initially felt that even they could contend against a Great Sage.
However, they had no choice but to retreat hundreds of miles when they saw the dreadful destructive power produced by the fight between the two individuals. After all, it would've been disastrous for these people even if the aftershocks of this battle had hit them.
Many people secretly swore when they saw Ye Xiwen's golden figure — [I'll also enter Great Sage realm sooner or later. Then, I'll overlook the world with a proud smile. I'll be above everyone.]
The fight between the two individuals issued layers upon layers of shock waves with them in the centre. These shock waves soared everywhere. The collision between Ye Xiwen and the Lord of 'Dominating Heaven Dojo' produced brilliant sparks. It looked just like splendid fireworks in the sky.
The speed of both individuals was extremely fast. It was so fast that even those powerful sage experts could only see two streamers of light colliding in the sky. The two looked evenly matched. Neither had gained the upper hand.
It wasn't known how many years ago the Lord of 'Dominating Heaven Dojo' had entered the Great Sage realm. It could be said that his cultivation realm was profound, and that he possessed immense martial power and dreadful magical powers. This was Ye Xiwen's disadvantage. However, he used the advantage of having an invincible body to the maximum. He possessed just one advantage, and he exploited it to the utmost. And, he fought with an old Great Sage expert like the Lord of 'Dominating Heaven Dojo' to a world-shaking extent by depending upon that advantage.
This was the aspect that had stunned a lot of sage experts. They had already experienced how dreadful a Great Sage expert could be from the body of the Lord of 'Dominating Heaven Dojo'.
However, they couldn't feel such strength of Great Sage realm from Ye Xiwen's body. In other words, Ye Xiwen was just a sage expert. However, a sage expert was fighting with a Great Sage head-on! This thing had overthrown their imaginations.
The sage realm and the Great Sage realm differed by just a thread. However, this difference was as massive as the separation between heaven and earth.
These people couldn't even dare to think that escaping from the hands of a Great Sage expert would be incredibly easy. So, directly contending against one was out of question.
The two sides separated from each other in midair, and stood far away in the space while facing each other. Everyone looked at them from afar. They were surprised to see that a wisp of blood dripped from the corner of the mouth of the Lord of 'Dominating Heaven Dojo'.
Countless people suddenly went in uproar. Ye Xiwen's ability to fend off a Great Sage expert was already beyond everyone's expectation. So, all of them were extremely shocked when they saw that the Lord of 'Dominating Heaven Dojo' was the first one to get injured. After all, the disparity between Great Sage realm and sage realm was deeply imprinted in their minds. Therefore, they just couldn't believe this outcome.
A look of panic flashed in the eyes of the Lord of 'Dominating Heaven Dojo'. He hadn't expected that this fight would reach to such an extent, and that he would even sustain injuries. It was certainly a small injury. However, it was enough to make Ye Xiwen feel proud.
The Lord became even more afraid of Ye Xiwen. Ye Xiwen's body was way too scary; he had never seen such a body. He had attacked several times, and every time it seemed that an ordinary person was striking on iron and gold metals.
His fist pressure was as heavy as a giant mountain. In fact, an ordinary expert of initial stage of half-step Great Sage realm would've been crushed into minced meat by just a single fist blow. He didn't know what kind of 'body power technique' Ye Xiwen had cultivated that his body had become so incredibly tough.
"Ye Xiwen, you must finish this quickly. Otherwise, your entire stock of 'Primary Spirit Dans' will be consumed," Ye Mo's voice entered into Ye Xiwen's ears.
Ye Xiwen's expression turned cold. His blood slave was using its strength of initial stage of half-step Great Sage realm to control the body of the Star Colossus. And, the blood slave was displaying the strength of initial stage of Great Sage realm in this way. Therefore, Ye Xiwen had to burn countless 'Primary Spirit Dans' and transform them into 'spirit energy' in order to provide constant support to the blood slave.
It was as if a child's soul was controlling the body of an adult. It wouldn't be possible to bring out the entire might if there was no coordination. Therefore, this process required the support of countless 'Primary Spirit Dans'. In fact, over 100 million 'Primary Spirit Dans' had been burnt within a short time.
A Great Sage level battle was enough to make him poor and frustrated. On top of that, he possessed less than 200 million 'Primary Spirit Dans' at the moment since he had recently come out of a long period of cultivation. He certainly had many kinds of heavenly treasures. However, they couldn't be exchanged for 'Primary Spirit Dans' at this time of emergency.
Ye Xiwen immediately understood that he couldn't drag this any further. Otherwise, it certainly wouldn't be the Lord of 'Dominating Heaven Dojo' who would lose. It would be him instead… And, because of the shortage of 'Primary Spirit Dans' at that! Moreover, he would have no other way apart from having his main body escape if that happened.
He moved at this time. His figure suddenly rushed out. It looked slim. However, it seemed as if a giant mountain had rushed out as he charged towards the Lord of 'Dominating Heaven Dojo'. His murderous aura had also increased significantly.
The 'Big Bang Stardust Fist' suddenly swept out. It looked mighty and enormous like the endless stars that were twinkling therein. It smashed down every time… like a section of the universe in-itself. This fist attack had already broken away from assuming just the form of a star as it used to in the past. It now embodied the deepest creative concept of the Universe!
This kind of fist technique was too terrifying. It looked a bit more tyrannical than a while ago when Ye Xiwen had used it during the fight. And, that was because Ye Xiwen had gone all-out this time around. After all, he needed to end this quickly. The dreadful fist pressure pressed down upon the Lord of 'Dominating Heaven Dojo', and he felt the pain. The astral wind that had been set-off blew against his skin. In fact, it felt like he was being sheared by a knife. It was extremely painful.
The Lord of 'Dominating Heaven Dojo' used the 'Star-Studded Demon Fist' to tackle this attack. However, he immediately went out flying since Ye Xiwen's fist momentum blasted away the 'Star-Studded Demon Fist' with ease.
The Lord of 'Dominating Heaven Dojo' stopped in mid-air while retreating. But, he was in a distressed state at this time. And, he was looking at Ye Xiwen with extreme hatred in his eyes. However, it was also difficult for him to hide the look of panic in his eyes.
The experts that were present in the surroundings were almost scared to death when they saw this scene. A sage expert had challenged a Great Sage expert. And, that sage expert not only turned out to be evenly matched with the Great Sage expert, but he also seemed unfazed. In fact, he was even trying to exterminate the Great Sage expert!
Ye Xiwen looked even more tyrannical now than he had a moment ago. It was evident that he had held back earlier. And, everyone became terrified when they realized this. A sage expert was fighting with a Great Sage expert… and had still dared to hold back! They didn't know whether they should call him a bold man or an arrogant person who didn't know of the profoundness of this world.
It had become difficult for the Lord of 'Dominating Heaven Dojo' to conceal the look of dread as well as hatred on his face. He cared very much about his prestige. However, he had lost his prestige after being forced into this disadvantageous position by Ye Xiwen again and again. Moreover, Ye Xiwen hadn't even been using his entire strength. He had held back at the most crucial time. In fact, he had held back at a time when this lord could easily kill him on the spot if he wanted to. And, this realization made the Lord of 'Dominating Heaven Dojo' feel great shame and humiliation.
Ye Xiwen sneered. He then rushed forward. He didn't give the Lord of 'Dominating Heaven Dojo' any time to rest. The world was reduced to nothingness as Ye Xiwen advanced forward. He unleashed astonishing fist attacks, and they bombarded everywhere… as if they were dazzling fireworks. They streaked across the space, and issued incredible divine beams. These brilliant rays of light dazzled in the space.
The Lord of 'Dominating Heaven Dojo' didn't dare to risk his life, and promptly retreated. He had also noticed that Ye Xiwen had become more tyrannical than before. Ye Xiwen's tyrannical body turned out to be his hidden trump. Consequently, Ye Xiwen could attack without any hesitation. However, this lord couldn't do the same…
Three of his punches to Ye Xiwen's body might not be able to injure Ye Xiwen very seriously. However, one fist from Ye Xiwen could injure him badly. This was essentially the main disparity between them. And, this was also the reason why he couldn't dare to face Ye Xiwen head-on.
He had promptly retreated. However, Ye Xiwen's speed was even faster. So, the impact of this fist attack still pounded upon his body. Half of his body almost got exploded, and turned into a mess. And, his complexion suddenly turned deathly pale as a result. However, he promptly operated his martial power to restore his injuries. His vitality was exceptionally tenacious since he was a Great Sage expert. Therefore, he managed to heal his injuries within a short time.
However, there was an indescribable grievance in his eyes at the moment. He was terrified and angry at the same time. He didn't pay attention to sage experts on usual days. In fact, he considered them like ants. However, he had suffered a setback at the hands of one at this juncture; he had suffered a huge defeat at the hands of a person whom he had underestimated initially, and had considered as an ant.
This was a huge irony.
"Ye Xiwen, don't feel too proud. I can see that you are certainly using some kind of secret technique because of which you have managed to pose a threat to a Great Sage expert like me. I will wait until this secret technique of yours gets exhausted. Then, it will be a dead-end for you. It would be better if both of us take a step back and star over once again," the eyes of the Lord of 'Dominating Heaven Dojo' flickered as he said. He was planning in his heart. He could see that Ye Xiwen's current tyrannical condition was unbelievable. Therefore, it was obviously that Ye Xiwen was using some secret technique. However, it was impossible to carry such imposing aura for a long time. Therefore, he must drag this out for now. After all, this man would return to his ant-like sage level condition with the passage of time. And, he wouldn't have to beat around the bush at that time. Instead, he could kill Ye Xiwen with the utmost brutality, and extract revenge for the humiliation that he was facing at this time.
Ye Xiwen sneered in reply. He saw through the plan of the Lord of 'Dominating Heaven Dojo' and said, "It's a good plan. However, you won't be able to wait until then."
Ye Xiwen once again rushed out to attack without caring about anything. "Bang!" The void under his feet cracked with a loud explosive sound. And, he arrived in front of the Lord of 'Dominating Heaven Dojo' almost instantly.
Who would've imagined that the Lord of 'Dominating Heaven Dojo' would have to escape in the end? …that he would flee in such a determined manner? However, the Lord of 'Dominating Heaven Dojo' turned around, and escaped the moment he became certain that Ye Xiwen couldn't be fooled!
"Ye Xiwen, your death is imminent. You have dared to challenge the prestige of a Great Sage expert even though you are a sage expert," the Lord of 'Dominating Heaven Dojo' shouted in a flustered and exasperated manner while he escaped.
"How come I don't know that my death is imminent?" Ye Xiwen smirked in response.
The Lord of 'Dominating Heaven Dojo' escaped in the direction of the Great Gas City. This was his only way out since there were three equally-powerful Great Sage experts inside the city. They were the founders of three other big forces of the city. And, they could stop Ye Xiwen if they were willing to attack. In fact, it wouldn't matter how ferocious Ye Xiwen was in that case. After all, he couldn't contend against a group of three Great Sage experts. The Lord had planned on waiting until Ye Xiwen's most terrifying phase had ended. And, he would counterattack thereafter.
"My three friends... quickly come out, and help me in killing this evildoer. We will divide his treasures among us!" the voice of the Lord of 'Dominating Heaven Dojo' reverberated in the vast space. He thought to invite the strongmen to attack and kill Ye Xiwen together. However, he intended to sit idly himself, and receive benefits… just like a fisherman.
"Humph! Lord of Dominating Heaven Dojo, do you think we are fools like you?" the sound of a cold snort came from inside the Great Gas City. This sentence had been spoken by a Great Sage expert. Nobody wanted to offend the powerhouse who was chasing the Lord of the Dominating Heaven Dojo as if he were some stray dog…
Moreover, they were basically rivals. And, those three would certainly appreciate to have one less rival.
"You had it coming. The time has come to accept your death. Now die!" Ye Xiwen's ice-cold voice came from the space, and immediately scared the hell out of the Lord of 'Dominating Heaven Dojo'. Then, a huge star fell from above, and smashed down on the Lord's body.
"Ah, I don't want to die!" the Lord of 'Dominating Heaven Dojo' screamed as he got transformed into blood fog with a 'Bang'.
