Chapter 836: Suppressing the Moon Demon!
Qin Lie also saw the state of the situation.
Wearing the Moon Crown, Helian Zheng suddenly became invisible and intangible. He did not know where the other was hiding.
Only the Corpse Demon Pu Ze could feel a slight hint of his presence and pose a threat to him.
Yet with every one of Helian Zheng's light explosions, the scattered moonlight would come in a fierce attack.
He and Lin Liang'er had all kinds of wounds after the onslaught of moon energy daggers. He was afraid they wouldn’t last much longer.
He had probed with his soul consciousness, but he could not find even a trace of Helian Zheng under the clean moonlight.
The enormous difference in cultivation meant that he could not lock onto Helian Zheng's soul and help the Corpse Demon.
The cheeks of two Fragmentation Realm martial practitioners of Turin Cave suddenly sank as they had been drained of their vitality.
Qin Lie instinctively looked towards the two.
Pure moon power mixed with bodily energies was extracted from the two.
The moon power and energy gathered at one point.
The Corpse Demon Pu Ze violently reacted again.
The blood energy on top, the corpse energy below, the Corpse Demon used the secret art, "Heavenly Net" to trap Helian Zheng.
"Heehee, a mere puppet dares to rampage in Turin Cave!" Helian Zheng gave a dark laugh.
The two Fragmentation Realm Turin Cave martial practitioners exploded after their moon energy run out.
Another blinding explosion of moonlight occurred where the Heavenly Net had landed. Moonlight scattered.
Qin Lie and Lin Liang'er hurriedly moved away to distance themselves.
But this time, the exploding moon energy was not targeted towards them, but fully concentrated on the Corpse Demon Pu Ze.
"Cling cling ding ding!"
Metallic clanging sounded from the Corpse Demon's body. Small cracks appeared on the Corpse Demon's body.
Thick corpse energy spilled out of those cracks, but not a drop of blood.
After this attack, the aura of the Corpse Demon clearly weakened greatly.
It seemed that he had spent too much energy in his battle with Helian Zheng in this short period of time.
He gradually showed tiredness.
"A puppet is just a puppet, how can it be a match for a high ranking being? Island Master Qin, you have forced my hand today. Even if I have to pay a great price, I will keep you here!" Helian Zheng laughed.
A clear moon energy suddenly appeared in front of Qin Lie and Lin Liang'er.
Not far away, another Fragmentation Realm Turin Cave martial practitioner's moon power and energy were extracted and he died.
He Qian, Dong Chen, and the other Turin Cave martial practitioners that knew the terror of the Moon God were thousands of meters away now.
They left Helian Zheng alone.
No one wanted to become the next offering for the Moon God.
"Hold on tight!"
Qin Lie's expression suddenly changed. He knew that Helian Zheng was at his most dangerous state. He had to escape again using the Blood Escape.
Helian Zheng avoided the Corpse Demon and stood in front of him.
The Corpse Demon did not have the time to take care of the trouble for him!
"This time, you will not be able to run away." Helian Zheng grinned.
Before he could react, Helian Zheng suddenly took off the Moon Crown and set it on Qin Lie's head.
"Haha, the Moon God is interested in your Spirits of Void and Chaos, just be obedient and offer everything in tribute."
The Moon Crown landed on Qin Lie's head securely.
In a blink of an eye, there seemed to be countless cold silver threads that pierced into his mind through the Moon Crown. A dark and eerie consciousness furiously burrowed into his head along those silver threads.
Qin Lie immediately held his head and cried in pain.
He felt terror as though thousands of insects were nibbling away on his brain. The terror immediately drowned him.
Qin Lie gave off ear-piercing screams.
"Heehee, heeheehee!" Helian Zheng laughed viciously.
Lin Liang'er was slapped away by him when she tried to come over to help. She was drowned by a patch of moon energy, unable to move.
At the same time, cold and invisible soul thoughts pierced into Qin Lie's head like millions of spikes. They seemed to be searching for something in his mind.
The piercing pain in his mind caused Qin Lie to want to faint. He seemed to see a crescent soul shadow flashing.
"Pathetic being, give everything to me. I will release you from the pain."
A cold and dark voice roared through his dizzy mind.
For a moment, he truly wanted to give up everything, let himself be controlled by the intruder to lessen the pain.
Yet his steely resolve from cultivating Heavenly Thunder Eradication for more than a decade allowed him to grit his teeth and persist.
He bit down on his teeth, roared inside his mind as he tried to channel his thoughts.
His thoughts spun in his soul and immediately activated the lightning and thunder deep in his mind.
In that instant, his soul consciousness gave off a world-shattering roar. Thunder and lightning exploded, giving off terrifying roars that could destroy evil souls.
The cold soul consciousness that forced its way in through the Moon Crown gave off pained grasps as the thunder and lightning exploded in his mind.
Even the Moon Demon who once caused the destruction of the Moon Worshipping Cult was in a disheveled state when attacked by Qin Lie's Heavenly Thunder Eradication attacks.
As he shouted, Qin Lie grabbed onto the Moon Crown with his hands and wanted to pull it off.
However, that Moon Crown seemed to be rooted in his head. No matter how hard he pulled, he could not move the Moon Crown.
It seemed to be grown on his head.
"Thunder, so it is thunder..."
The Moon Demon cold consciousness sounded inside his mind. Then a thread of light shot out of the Moon Crown. It connected to Helian Zheng.
Helian Zheng's gaze suddenly became still.
A moment later, Helian Zheng's eyes showed an inhuman light again.
He suddenly took a step forward.
His hands grabbed onto Qin Lie's shoulders and he tightened his grip. Qin Lie's shoulder bones gave off a "crack."
Qin Lie wailed at the enormous pain in his body. The attention he had gathered in his mind suddenly dissipated.
The Thunder Conception of the Heavenly Thunder Eradication could not continue to stop the invasion of the Moon Demon.
"Do not struggle, pitiful being, you cannot escape from my hand. Give me the Spirits of Void and Chaos, let me consume them and I will be able to walk out of the Moon Crown. I will transform this world to the Serene Moon Realm, help me open the void passage and for my Serene Moon Race to descend to the Spirit Realm!" The Moon Demon’s dark voice once again sounded inside Qin Lie's head. it caused Qin Lie to experience even more pain.
This time, Qin Lie whose bones had been crushed by Helian Zheng did not have the energy to use the Thunder Conception.
Many cold threads like the light of a cold moon started to spread through Qin Lie's body starting from his mind.
A cold moon energy suddenly burrowed into Qin Lie's forehead and touched the Soul Suppressing Orb under his skin.
The Soul Suppressing Orb which had been in a state of slumber seemed to be awoken by this evil aura. It suddenly broke free of Qin Lie's skin and floated out.
The inky dark Soul Suppressing Orb seemed to be Qin Lie's third eye as it appeared between his brows.
Almost at the same time, strange ripples of light spread from inside the Soul Suppressing Orb.
The serene light spread.
"Whoosh whoosh whoosh!"
In an instant, the Moon Demon's soul threads that had burrowed into Qin Lie's mind were pulled to the Soul Suppressing Orb like they were attracted to a magnet.
"Oh, this is, this is..."
The Moon Demon suddenly gave a terrified shout.
At this time, Qin Lie who had been holding the Moon Crown and trying to pull it off his head finally managed to do so.
At his forehead, the light of the Soul Suppressing Orb, that was like a third eye, landed on the Moon Crown.
The threads of moonlight on the Moon Crown were uncontrollably drawn to the Soul Suppressing Orb.
Qin Lie seemed to hear the sharp howls of the Moon Demon.
As the Moon Demon screamed, Helian Zheng's eyeballs suddenly exploded. Blood sprayed out and fell downwards.
The Moon Crown shook violently, the light on the crescent markings was being extinguished one by one.
Soon, a crescent shadow seemed to be sucked out by the Soul Suppressing Orb from the Moon Crown.
The shadow struggled violently as it gave off terrified screams.
It did all it could to distance itself from the Soul Suppressing Orb.
But under the Soul Suppressing Orb's power, all of its struggles were useless.
In the end, the Soul Suppressing Orb consumed that crescent shadow.
The layers of space inside the Soul Suppressing Orb sucked in the shadow until it completely disappeared.
When the Soul Suppressing Orb consumed the shadow, and Helian Zheng's eyeballs exploded, Qin Lie immediately broke free of his restraints.
He clearly felt the crescent shadow that came out of the Moon Crown pass through the first layer, the second, the third, and then into an unknown space of the fourth layer.
That space was still an unknown place for him.
And he was not sure whether the crescent shadow really was in the fourth layer of space.
—Because he had not learned how many layers the Soul Suppressing Orb actually had.
He only knew that the Spirits of Void and Chaos had been formed at even deeper parts of the Soul Suppressing Orb.
"Qin Lie, what is it?" He suddenly heard Lin Liang'er's voice.
Lin Liang'er, who had been restrained by Helian Zheng, had been released the moment Helian Zheng's eyeballs exploded and fell from the sky.
"Some things occurred..."
Qin Lie frowned. He reached out to hold the Moon Crown which had lost its light. he could no longer feel anything special from the Moon Crown.
Therefore, he immediately knew that the evil spirit, the Moon God worshipped by the moon worshippers that once upended Moon Worshipping Cult, had been consumed by the Soul Suppressing Orb.
