Chapter 987 – Advancing to tenth rank (2)
The lightning trial rumbled as it struck down.
Those black-clothed people that were originally headed for Su Luo, how could they still dare to take even half a step forward?
The crackling and rattling of the thunderous lightning resounded endlessly.
Suddenly, a lightning strike hit a black-clothed person. Immediately, that black-clothed person, along with his black clothes, was completely scorched, turning into greenish-black smoke which then drifted away.
The group of black-clothed people there were at least several dozen of them.
These were all Fairy Yan Xia's most highly-regarded subordinates. None of their strength was weak.
However, under these lightning strikes that attacked without discrimination, every one of them was struck and scorched black, then turned into greenish-black smoke.
The screams of the black-clothed people when they were at death's door mixed with the incessantly rumbling of the thunderous lightning. Between heaven and earth was
similar to purgatory, with the crying of wolves and bawling of ghosts, intensely mournful.
Nangong Liuyun was outwardly kind but inwardly evil.
Long beforehand, he had already planned everything out. He had already placed the lightning protection bead on Su Luo's body.
The lightning-protection bead—a treasure that lightning element mages yearned for even in their dreams.
In the entire continent, only the Lord of Purgatory City had it.
The lightning protection bead that Nangong Liuyun possessed was exactly the treasure the Lord of Purgatory City had.
He was Nangong Liuyun's teacher.
This was the breakthrough tool he had used when he was promoted to the tenth rank. So, he gave the lightning protection bead to Nangong Liuyun hoping it could protect his life during his promotion.
However, he never imagined that Nangong Liuyun would give the lightning protection bead to his most beloved woman.
Thunder and lightning were rolling all around.
Ten thousand purple rays of light illuminated the heaven and earth until it was as bright as daytime.
Fairy Yan Xia continuously used her spirit powers and martial arts, attempting to hold back the attacking lightning strikes.
There was a unique feature for the tenth rank's robbery trial.
The higher the level of the subject, the stronger the lightning will be.
If Nangong Liuyun was an ordinary person, the lightning trial wouldn't be this strong.
If Nangong Liuyun didn't cultivate in the lightning element, the lightning wouldn't be this strong either.
If Nangong Liuyun hadn't been endowed with unusual innate skills, rarely seen in ancient and modern times, the thunderous lightning trial wouldn't be this strong either.
However, these three points, Nangong Liuyun had them all!
So, today's lightning trial simply had the most lightning in history!
The sea of thunder
of thunder rolled on, resounding continuously.
Under the rolling sea of thunderous lightning, nothing existed between the heavens and earth anymore.
At this time, Fairy Yan Xia cut an unprecedentedly sorry figure.
Her hair that was originally meticulous, was now either severed by lightning or was sticking straight up by the electricity of the thunderous lightning.
That black cloak was so tattered that it barely covered her body.
The most frightening thing was that it was still raining.
The rain could conduct electricity!
So, Fairy Yan Xia's body crackled and rattled incessantly, with sparks flying in all directions, like fireworks that had been set off.
If Fairy Yan Xia's body was in its best condition, she might still have a chance to escape.
However, previously, she had been injured by the little stone, and the injuries on her body hadn't healed yet. This time, she also encountered an unprecedented lightning trial, and during the trial, there was also heavy torrential rain!
All of this was was like a demonic hand dragging Fairy hand dragging Fairy Yan Xia into the abyss of hell.
The thunderstorm was endless.
Don't know how many thousand-year-old ancient trees were destroyed.
Don't know how many magical beasts were struck and scorched.
The lightning element divided heaven and earth.
Nangong Liuyun had both his legs crossed as he sat and continuously absorbed the lightning elements.
As for the lightning trial that was originally supposed to strike his body, he naturally had Fairy Yan Xia to obstruct it.
Even though it was like this, Nangong Liuyun wasn't entirely without injury.
If he had the lightning-protection bead, Nangong Liuyun would naturally be able to avoid the lightning safely and without any injury.
However, at present, he could only stiffly bear the violent pain that came when the scorching lightning struck his body.
A thunderous lightning struck Nangong Liuyun's back.
Nangong Liuyun only felt that there was something sweet in his throat, and a mouthful of blood sprayed out.
Yet another lightning bolt had smashed down heavily!
