Chapter 403 – Wu Dong
As the black tornado wreaked havoc across the world, low and deep sounds, akin to the roars of a giant dragon, rang out, causing the earth the vibrate and tremble under the destruction caused by the tornado.
After observing the miserable endings to the first batch of people, the people hiding in the various spots of darkness didn't dare to recklessly take action and head out. Eyes sparkling, they quietly waited for the weakening of the spatial gales, since that would be the only time that they could safely take action.
As everyone hid and waited for that opportune moment, Mu Chen had already obtained the Wind Resistance Spiritual Pearl from Xia Youran. Placing it within his sleeve, he raised his head, looking straight at the rampaging tornado that's wreaking havoc everywhere. Taking a deep breath, he said, "I'm moving out now. Senior Sis Xia. If I'm able to obtain it, you should make a move first, before meeting up again later."
If he was truly able to obtain that Spiritual Treasure, he would immediately become the common enemy of everyone here. At that time, he might bring some trouble for Xia Youran, if she was to stayed with him. Although she might not mind, Mu Chen didn't want to bring about trouble for others, due to his actions.
Hearing his words, Xia Youran had understood Mu Chen's intent. However, she was also extremely clear that although the age of the youth in front of her was less than her own, he had extremely strong personal opinions. Therefore, not saying anything more about it, she nodded her head, before warning him again, "Be careful, alright?"
With a smile, Mu Chen nodded his head. Without any more hesitation, Spiritual Energy burning with black flames rose from him, enveloping his entire body. Under his skin, black lightning seemed to arc and spark about. Faced against those frightening spatial gales, Mu Chen clearly didn't have the guts to hold any of his strength back, and activated all of the defenses he could muster.
After doing that, a fierce glint gradually appeared within Mu Chen's eyes. With a shift, he shot out akin to a black bolt of lightning, and explosively headed towards the tornado.
Due to the earlier scene that unfolded, there was already no one that dared to recklessly take action. However, the sudden movement of Mu Chen immediately attracted all of the gazes over.
"There's other people that are taking action!"
"Heavenly Completion Stage Initial Phase? Where did this pile of waste come from? He's simply seeking his own death."
"He truly doesn't know the immensity of the heavens. Only those that are blessed would have the fortune to enjoy such a Spiritual Treasure."
Various whispering voices rang out from the darkness, with the majority of them being ones of mockery or contempt. Even for experts at the Heavenly Completion Stage Late Phase, the tornado formed by the spatial gales was extremely difficult to be dealt with. Seemingly all of the people at the Heavenly Completion Stage Initial Phase were unable to even escape from it.
Standing within the crevice in the mountain, Liu Ying and Dong Yuan were currently staring at the figure shooting across the skies with slightly narrowed eyes, with doubt and suspicion flickering within their gazes.
"He actually dared to snatch the treasure all by himself?" Dong Yuan exclaimed with a slight bit of shock. He had assumed that Xia Youran would accompany Mu Chen as he advanced towards the tornado. However, he never imagined that that fellow would have the nerve to attempt it by himself. Nevertheless, with the latter's strength, would he be able to pierce into that tornado?
A cold sneer appeared on the face of Liu Ying as he stared at the figure quickly shooting across the sky, while saying, "That's truly interesting. I really wanna see, exactly, what capability that recently famous brat has."
However, although he had said those words, he had also sent a signal towards a certain direction, were a black figure seemed to be present. He was radiating with a chilling aura, which caused the experts in its vicinity to immediately run far away, their eyes filled with dread and terror.
"Oh? It's that fellow," said Dong Yuan, after narrowing his eyes to take a look. With a smile, he said, "Look's like you don't play to personally take action, huh?"
"Wu Dong's the City Lord of the Heavenly Python City, and has some fame within the Northern Heavens Continent. He owes me a favor, and today's just the right day to return it…regardless of how many tricks he has up his sleeves, a Heavenly Completion Stage Initial Phase brat isn't worthy of me to personally take action," replied Liu Ying with an indifferent snort, one which contained unconcealable arrogance.
Shrugging his shoulders, Dong Yuan thought, This fella's truly cautious.
As the two people continued chatting, Mu Chen's figure explosively shot across the sky. On the contrary to people's expectations, the fierce rampaging spatial gales were unexpectedly unable to deal much obstruction to him. With Spiritual Energy burning with black flames surrounding his body, the occasion swipe of the black spatial wind blades were simply unable to pierce through his Spiritual Energy defenses.
This spectacle immediately caused quite a ruckus from the surrounding crowd, with quite a few people having shock and doubt on their faces. They were somewhat unable to believe that those incomparably ferocious spatial wind blades appeared to be as light as feathers, striking Mu Chen's body without too much strength at all.
"There's a possibility that the brat's got a Spiritual Artifact that defends against wind storms," said Dong Yuan with a slight frown. Being the Young Master of the Heavenly Yuan Chamber of Commerce, his eyesight wasn’t ordinary, since he was able to spot the underlying reason with a single look. Mu Chen should have some special Spiritual Artifact to protect his body, if not, he would not be able to travel in such an unimpeded fashion within the spatial gales.
"It should've been given to him by Xia Youran," replied Liu Ying within an increasingly dark expression. , Xia Youran truly did put in some effort for the sake of protecting that Mu Chen!
As Mu Chen's figure shot explosively across the horizon, he reached the vicinity of the gigantic tornado within the short span of a dozen breaths. As he did so, his entire body grew increasingly tense, since he knew that he was now in a truly dangerous region. The previous batch of people had all been utterly massacred at this place, suffering disastrous losses.
Just as Mu Chen was getting vigilant, the tornado seemed to have discovered his presence nearby, instantly sending humming sounds ringing out. Black-coloured spatial wind blades that hid the skies and covered the earth swept out, appearing akin to a wind dragon covered in blades, and were heading straight towards Mu Chen.
With a swift wave of his hand, a green-coloured halo expanded from the Wind Resistance Spiritual Pearl within his palm.
The wind dragon composed of spatial wind blades rushed towards the halo, causing its fierce brilliance to instantly turn dim by quite a bit. As this happened, the degree of sharpness of the wind dragon was reduced. Nevertheless, this attack was too strong. Even after being greatly weakened by the Wind Resistance Spiritual Pearl, it didn't scatter apart, and the spatial wind blades violently struck against Mu Chen's body, one after another.
Cold sneers over the impending misfortune instantly rang out from below. This brat is going to suffer death by a thousand cuts…
However, as the cold sneers rang out, all of a sudden, the eyes of a few people furiously sprang apart. In the sky, after being struck by numerous spatial wind blades, Mu Chen had actually been knocked back by a dozen metres. As he stabilised himself, not a single drop of blood was present on his body,
This fellow has actually endured all of the spatial wind blades that struck him!
This caused the expressions of those Heavenly Completion Stage Late Phase experts to turn solemn. If they were to place themselves in Mu Chen's shoes, they might not be able to escape unscathed from that many spatial wind blades. The youth in front of their eyes clearly had some abilities.
Travelling through the sky, Mu Chen didn't bother about the gazes coming from below. Lowering his head to look as his body, he noticed that his clothes had already been shredded apart. White scratches covered his skin, faintly throbbing within pain. Nevertheless, such a bit of pain was completely ignored by Mu Chen.
Mu Chen quietly breathed a sigh of relief, feeling fortunate for the great rise in his strength. Coupled with the Lightning God's Physique, as well as the assistance from the Wind Resistance Spiritual Pearl, those spatial wind blades weren't able to do much harm to him.
Since this is the case, let's rush straight into the tornado!
With a grin on his face, Mu Chen headed forward, planning to rush straight into the tornado to obtain the Spiritual Treasure within.
Within the mountain crevice, Liu Ying darkly stared towards the figure piercing through the obstruction of the spatial wind blades as though they were pieces of paper. Looking towards the black figure not far away from him, he gently nodded his head, then extended his hand to make a slicing action across his neck.
Within the darkness, the figure shrouded with a chilling aura gave a smile, revealing his pearly-white teeth. With a shift of his body, cracks appeared below his feet as his figure shot towards the sky like a vicious eagle.
Immediately, the figure that had suddenly rushed towards the sky attracted the attention of everyone in the vicinity. The expressions of some people slightly changed as they cried out, "That's…the City Lord of the Heavenly Python City, Wu Dong?"
"That fellow…has already been at the Heavenly Completion Stage Late Phase for a long time. I don't know if he has crossed the Human Body Disaster as of now…"
"It's said that Wu Dong once tried to cross the Human Body Disaster, but failed. This fella's also formidable, being fortunate enough to survive with his life. However, his current strength has exceeded a normal Heavenly Completion Stage Late Phase, and is simply not someone that the other fellow can match."
"Since he has taken action, I'm afraid that misfortune's heading that brat's way."
As whispers rang about from the surroundings, the figure that had explosively dashed up grew increasingly clear within people's view. The figure wore a green armor, with a faint green glow sparkling around it. Clearly, this was also a defensive Spiritual Artifact. As the surrounding spatial wind blades slashed against the armor, they left behind lines of scratch marks, but were unable to penetrate through it.
Clearly, this Wu Dong had come prepared.
On the lower ground, Xia Youran had also spotted Wu Dong, who was heading towards Mu Chen, causing her lovable face to slightly sink. With a cold snort, she sent a flick out with a finger, sending boundless Spiritual Energy shooting out. Like a whip, she swung it straight towards the latter.
Sensing the swift and fierce attack heading towards him, Wu Dong didn't slow down the slightest bit, with no signs of showing any care for it too.
However, as the Spiritual Energy whip shot straight towards Wu Dong, suddenly, a grey-coloured streak of light explosively shot out from below. Smashing into the Spiritual Energy whip, it obstructed it from its intended target.
A slightly frosty expression appeared on Xia Youran's face as she turned her head over, only to see a figure faintly smiling from the mountain crevice, it was Liu Ying.
"Liu Ying! What are you doing?!" A frosty roar rang out from Xia Youran. It's this loathsome fellow again!
With a faint smile, a cold and indifferent voice rang out like the wind from Liu Ying.
"Heaven-born Spiritual Treasures are for the capable to obtain, Youran. There's no need to obstruct other people. If that brat's powerless, he should just obediently return to the Northern Heavens Spiritual Academy to train. This Spiritual Treasure isn't something that he should lay his finger on."
Chapter 404 – Poisonous Finger
Looking coldly at the faintly smiling Liu Ying standing not too far from her, powerful Spiritual Energy started to swell around Xia Youran's body, causing creaking sounds to ring out in the air. She had always been extremely irked by that Liu Ying, ever since the projects that their Chambers of Commerce had collaborated on. Although the two of them were tied together through an engagement, that was just for show, a beneficial agreement, and was known to everyone. However, who would have thought that this fellow would unexpected treat it as something real, and view her as something that was forbidden to be contacted by anyone, with any friend of the opposite sex that came close to her suffering his wrath and retribution?
Although it wasn't good for Xia Youran to break all pretense with Liu Ying, due to the strength of the Umbra Chamber of Commerce. However, she felt extreme ire towards him, one that was growing increasingly deep as of now.
As of today, that fellow had suddenly targeted Mu Chen. Clearly, it was because of him getting close to her.
"Do you really think that I don't dare to deal with you, Liu Ying?!" An ice-cold voice rang out of Xia Youran as her lovable face turned frosty.
Shrugging his shoulders, Liu Ying replied with a smile, "I only want for you to calm down for a bit, Youran. That brat's ambition's too big. Suffering a setback's good thing for him."
As he spoke, he sent a faint smile towards Xia Youran. "Furthermore, I didn't personally take action against that brat, Youran, and that's due to you. Therefore, you shouldn't take action again, and just quietly sit back and enjoy the nice show. Isn't that much better?"
With a sneer, Xia Youran replied, "Do you think you can obstruct me? Also, can that Wu Dong really deal with Mu Chen?"
"Haha. I know that Mo Longzi was defeated by that Mu Chen. However, Wu Dong isn't Mo Longzi. Although he has failed his Human Body Disaster, within the Heavenly Completion Stage, I'm afraid that there aren't many people that are his match," replied Liu Ying with a faint smile.
Hearing his reply, Xia Youran slightly clenched her teeth. Nevertheless, although she was worried about Mu Chen, she naturally couldn't reveal that thought on her face. With a cold snort, she cried out, "Let's look and see!"
The Liu Ying before her was clearly staring right back at her, not letting her take action. Although Xia Youran wasn't afraid of Liu Ying, she might get tied down by the latter, if they were to cross hands. In that way, it wouldn't help Mu Chen in any way.
"Then, I'll wait and see."
Seeing the anger and fury present on Xia Youran's beautiful face, the smile at the corner of his mouth appeared much richer. Crossing his hands behind his back, he turned to look towards the sky with a grin.
In the sky, Wu Dong's speed increased to an extremely fast level, appearing like a streak of light, piercing through the spatial wind blades that blotted the skies. Fiercely staring at Mu Chen, who was also travelling through the spatial wind blades, he sent a furious pat out. The boundless winds that brought along boundless Spiritual Energy rushed out from his palm, piercing through the spatial wind blades, violently smashing towards Mu Chen's figure.
When Wu Dong rushed towards the sky, Mu Chen had already discovered him. As of now, when the former had sent his attack out, a slightly chilly glint appeared within Mu Chen's eyes. In the next instant, a dragon shadow surfaced around his body as he retreated a dozen steps back.Evading the incoming attack, he slightly turned his body, looking towards the figure shooting towards him.
"You're called Mu Chen, right?" Looking towards Mu Chen, an indifferent smile appeared on Wu Dong's face as he said, "Go down. This Spiritual Treasure isn't something that you should put your fingers on."
"Who are you?" asked Mu Chen with a frown. The man before him appeared to be roughly thirty years old in age, with the Spiritual Energy fluctuations radiating from his body being even stronger than Mo Longzi during their fight.
"Heavenly Python City's Lord, Wu Dong,"replied Wu Dong with the same indifferent tone. Nevertheless, a sliver of unconcealable arrogance could be heard from his voice.
Frowning as he pondered, Mu Chen replied with an emotionless voice, "Never heard of you before."
Wu Dong's expression immediately turned sluggish. He could be considered to have some reputation within the Northern Heavens Continent. After all, he had become a Lord of a city within a continent brimming with experts at such an age, which was considered an extraordinary achievement by itself. Therefore, Mu Chen's response caused his eyes to faintly narrow, before sneering as he said, "The students taught by the Northern Heavens Spiritual Academy are truly getting more and more rampant by the batch. No wonder why their prestige is dropping more and more as the years go by. Look's like they really can no longer endure it, since they summoned up the guts to send someone like you to participate in the Divine Spiritual Mountain. However, I'm afraid that they'll not be able to earn any reputation back, since they will throw their face away once again."
"A small Heavenly Python City Lord dares to speak such rampant words, huh? Destroying you would just be a matter of a wave for the Northern Heavens Spiritual Academy," replied Mu Chen with a frown, not showing a single shred of face for the so-called 'Heavenly Python City Lord'.
"You damnable thing!" A roar rang out from Wu Dong, with his face finally turning dark. With a shift of his body, he explosively shot forward. Shadow fists howled out, bringing along boundless Spiritual Energy as heavy as mountains, enveloping all over Mu Chen.
Seeing this, Mu Chen didn't engage into a head-on confrontation with him, and a dragon shadow rose from his body. While a dragon's roar rang out, his speed explosively increased, while he rushed straight towards the inner region of the tornado.
"Are you able to run away today?" Seeing Mu Chen rushing into the tornado that's wreaking havoc all around, the eyes of Wu Dong slightly narrowed. With a cold sneer, dazzling brilliance erupted from his armor, enveloping his entire body. Transforming into a glowing streak of light, he followed suit, rushing straight at the tornado.
As he dashed towards the tornado, Mu Chen could feel how formidable those spatial wind blades were. Even with the protection of the Wind Resistance Spiritual Pearl, the spatial wind blades that hid the skies and covered the earth caused red welts to appear on Mu Chen's skin as they brought about their rotational energies, slashing furiously down on him.
Rotating his Spiritual Energy, lightning arcs sparked across the surface of his body as he forcefully endured the attacks that hid the skies and covered the earth, while flying rapidly towards the inner region of the tornado.
Not far behind him, green light sparkled as Wu Dong closely pursued him from behind. With the green armor protecting his body, causing the spatial wind blades shooting at his direction to completely disappear, he looked towards Mu Chen's figure present in front of him. With a furious clench of his arm, a long halberd appeared in a flash. A shiver went through his arms as he sent an incomparably fierce wind blade sweeping out. Completely smashing apart all the spatial wind blades in its path, it moved forward, heading towards its intended victim.
"Don't think about obtaining the treasure from under my nose today! That'll be simply the ravings of a lunatic!"
Sensing the boundless wind blade shooting towards him from behind, a chilling glint flashed within Mu Chen's eyes as he came to an abrupt halt. In the next instant, turning around, he sent a fist rumbling out. Spiritual Energy burning with black flames spewed out, completely smashing the incoming Spiritual Energy halberd shadow apart.
As his fist smashed the incoming Spiritual Energy halberd shadow apart, Mu Chen didn't proceed forward once again; instead, he turned around, and dashed towards Wu Dong.
"You finally can't endure anymore, huh? I thought that you'd be like a rabbit, continuing to run and flee away!" Seeing Mu Chen taking the initiative to rush towards him, a sneer instantly surfaced on the corner of Wu Dong's mouth. This brat's truly a greenhorn! Just like that, and he's unable to endure any more! Did he think that I'm Mo Longzi?
As Mu Chen shot over, a frosty expression was present on his face. A seal formation appeared from his hands, before boundless Spiritual Energy rushed towards the skies. As the starry skies appeared, three gigantic beastial shadows appeared. In the next instant, bringing about astonishing might, they split space apart, smashing all of the incomparably berserk spatial gales in the surroundings apart.
"A bit of ability, huh?"
Looking at the three gigantic beastial shadows shooting his way, and sensing the Spiritual Energy fluctuations radiating from them, caused Wu Dong's eyes to faintly narrow. This attack had truly reached a level comparable to Heavenly Completion Stage Late Phase. Look's like this Mu Chen didn't rely completely on luck to defeat that Mo Longzi.
"Just that little bit of ability isn't anything in front of me!"
With a furious shake of the halberd in his hand, Wu Dong thrust it straight out like a spear. Powerful Spiritual Energy swept out as the halberd's shadow transformed into an incomparably gigantic python. As the gigantic python howled out, it merged with the body of the halberd, piercing straight towards the three gigantic beastial shadows.
Rampaging Spiritual Energy fluctuations rushed out, unexpectedly creating a hundred foot sphere of free space around them. At this moment, the spatial gales wreaking havoc in their surroundings were unable to intrude in this space.
On the ground below, various experts had raised their heads to look at the two figures intensely crossing hands within the devastated space in the gigantic tornado. This caused quite a few people to quietly click their tongues in admiration. Those two fellows truly had guts bigger than everyone else. The tornado was brimming with spatial gales, with one requiring to pay an extremely miserable price with just a lapse of judgement.
There were also quite a few people feeling shock and astonishment towards Mu Chen's performance. Everyone present knew the level of Wu Dong's strength. Although he had failed to cross his Human Body Disaster, he was absolutely stronger than an ordinary Heavenly Completion Stage Late Phase. Nevertheless, Mu Chen had actually dared to engage in a head-on confrontation against him, and wasn't even in much of a disadvantageous position. This caused quite a few people to gasp in admiration; after all, his strength was only at the Heavenly Completion Stage Initial Phase.
As rampaging Spiritual Energy swept out, Mu Chen's figure shoot forward, while looking towards the halberd-wielding Wu Dong standing in the distance. At this moment, the frosty glint within his eyes grew increasingly thick, since he could feel that the spatial gales within the tornado gradually getting weaker. If he wasn't able to deal with this Wu Dong soon, once the spatial gales scattered, the countless experts staring from below with bloodshot eyes might take action then. At that moment, wanting to snatch the treasure from that group of wolves would truly be extremely difficult. After all, Mu Chen knew that he wasn't able to achieve victory over everyone by himself.
Therefore, he needed to get rid of the fellow in front of him in the fastest possible time!
As Mu Chen's eyes narrowed, he transformed into a streak of light, shooting towards Wu Dong in a straight line. As he did so, black lightning arcs sparked across his body, while a powerful strength started to radiate out from within.
"You've cultivated a Body-Refining Divine Art?"
A poisonous glare shot out from Wu Dong's eyes, since he could tell with one look how extraordinary Mu Chen was, while his sneer grew increasingly wide. Did this waste truly think that he would be very formidable after cultivating a Body-Refining Divine Art? Although he had fail his Human Body Disaster, he had still become extremely powerful. Even people who had cultivated in a Body-Refining Divine Art would be hard to compare to him.
"A brat that doesn't know how high the heavens are! I'll deal with you in a single move!"
A fierce and sinister glint flashed within Wu Dong's eyes as a lustrous white light unexpectedly erupted from his body. At this moment, all the blood and flesh within his body seemed to flare up as an extremely powerful strength started to surge within his limbs and bones.
As he stomped on the air, his figure explosively shot forward. In a span of a few breaths, he had made contact within Mu Chen, with body of the other being able to feel the chilling intent erupting from each other's eyes.
Pointing his fingers like spears, Mu Chen sent them piercing out, shattering all of the surrounding spatial gales apart in an abnormally swift and fierce manner.
With a sinister smile, Wu Dong clenched his hands into fists, while lustrous white light sparkled from them, causing them to appear akin to jade, hard and indestructible. This fist was more than sufficient to cause severe injuries to a Heavenly Completion Stage Late Phase expert!
Nevertheless, faced against such an attack, Mu Chen, unexpectedly, did not dodge or evade. Piercing his two fingers forward, he smashed them towards Wu Dong's wind fists.
At the instant of contact, Wu Dong seemed to see a cold and sinister smile slowly creeping up from the corner of Mu Chen's mouth.
At the same time, one of Mu Chen's fingers instantly turned incomparably jet-black.
Chapter 405 – Severed Arm
At the very instant when Mu Chen's finger had turned jet-black, Wu Dong seemed to have also discovered it, causing a unconcealable chill to suddenly flood through his mind. As cold sweat erupted from him, drenching his entire body, the senses that he had honed for all the years of training and cultivation had caused him to feel a sensation of life-threatening unease at this moment.
Therefore, he had halted the punch he was about to send out seemingly at that instant. The strong gales caused by his sudden reversal caused the Spiritual Energy in his body to churn and slosh around. Nevertheless, not caring a damn about this, he forced himself to retreat as fast as he could.
"Isn't it a bit too late to walk away now?"
However, the instant when he had stepped back, Mu Chen's cold and frosty voice rang out like maggots in one's tarsus. The handsome face of the youth was now engulfed in chilling intent. Taking a step out, a giant dragon shadow seemed to surface at the bottom of his feet. Carrying him on its back, his step forward caused him to appear as if he was piercing through space.
Like a spectre, he appeared right before the retreating Wu Dong, that black fingertip shooting towards the throat of the latter at lightning speed.
That jet-black finger appeared akin to the sickle of the grim reaper, radiating with a dense aura of death.
His speed was too quick, too the point that Wu Dong was unable to react in time, only managing to send a rebounding arm to shield in front of his body, while erupting his Spiritual Energy out in defense.
The jet-black finger pierced through. As the boundless Spiritual Energy defense came into contact with the jet-black finger, crackling sounds immediately erupted from it, before started to dissolve away. Like an incomparably sharp dagger, Mu Chen's fingertip pierced straight into Wu Dong's arm like a bolt of lightning.
As the fingertip pierced through, it brought along a spray of fresh blood.
As Wu Dong's figure miserably retreated back, he was incomparably shocked to see his arm turning jet black at an astonishing speed. At this moment, a black colour started to crazily extending across his body.
This was a frightening poison!
Overwhelmed with shock, Wu Dong hastily tried to circulate his Spiritual Energy in an attempt to force the poison out from his body. However, as his Spiritual Energy made contact with the black poison, Wu Dong discovered, to his horror, that the Spiritual Energy in his body was unexpected being corroded by the poison at a rapid pace! That Spiritual Energy had unexpectedly turned into a highly toxic poison at this moment!
He was completely unable to force it out!
Such overbearing poison!
At this moment, Wu Dong's face turned deathly pale as he thought, What kind of poison is this? ! It's actually so overbearing! Even Spiritual Energy will get contaminated by it!
As the black-coloured poison lines started to rapidly extend, Wu Dong's eyes turned bloodshot. In the next moment, with a furious clench of his teeth, he turned his hand into a blade. As Spiritual Energy surged out, he gave a vicious chop down at the base of his arm, violently slashing down.
A fierce shriek rang out of Wu Dong's mouth as the arm, having already turned jet-black, detached from his body and flew down from the sky, spurting out blood that had already turned jet-black. As it left his body, the cut off arm rapidly rotted away, turning into black-coloured ashes in a short span of a few breaths, before scattering apart.
Retreating in an extremely miserable fashion, Wu Dong's face appeared deathly-pale, with his forehead dripping with sweat. At this moment, the gaze shooting towards Mu Chen had turned into one of incomparable dread and terror. That poison's too terrifying!
Seeing this, a slight frown appeared on Mu Chen's forehead. It was extremely hard for him to grasp the opportunity to display his "Black Lightning Poison Finger". He never imagined that Wu Dong would be that decisive to actually chop his arm off upon discovering the inability to dispel the overbearing poisonous aura.
"One more time!"
With a cold and detached smile on his face, Mu Chen's figure shot out once again. Seeing this, Wu Dong was terror-stricken, turning stiff with fear, no longer daring to take action against Mu Chen anymore. Turning around, he became an extremely sorry figure as he fled away. A roar filled with fury and anger rang out along with the spatial gales in the sky, "For the enmity of my arm, I'll definitely take my revenge, Mu Chen!"
Looking at the figure of Wu Dong fleeing in horror, a faint smile appeared on Mu Chen's face, before the jet-black finger started to slowly regain its original colour. With every use, that "Black Lightning Poison Finger" would decreasing in toxicity. Therefore, he couldn't just use it in any normal occasion, and left it as a hidden ace. If he didn't need to chase that Wu Dong away as fast as possible, he wouldn't have used it at all. However, he never imagined that this "Black Lightning Poison Finger" would actually be that overbearing. Just a single touch was enough to waste away an entire arm of Wu Dong's.
He never proceeded to chase after the fleeing Wu Dong. Although he had completely trashed the latter, the current him had a more important matter to attend to.
Turning his body around, he looked towards the depths of the tornado. In the next moment, his figure explosively shot towards it. Now, he needed to grasp the best timing to obtain that Spiritual Treasure!
As Wu Dong fled away, the various experts below could faintly hear the furious roars of the former ringing out from the tornado. Hearing those angry roars, their expressions slightly changed. Nevertheless, due to the obstruction of the storm, they were able to determine exactly what had appeared during that moment.
The faint smile originally present on Liu Ying's face started to slowly turn dark. Clearly, he had felt that something was not quite right.
As everyone was guessing about what had happened, a glowing figure suddenly shot out from the tornado storm in an extremely miserable fashion, immediately drawing all of their gazes.
And there, Wu Dong was fleeing in terror, a deathly-pale shadow present on his face, body drenched in cold sweat. He appeared as miserable as a stray dog on the streets, completely different from the arrogant aura of a City Lord that he had shown at the very beginning.
As their gazes shot over to Wu Dong, before finally resting on his missing arm, the eyes of quite a few people furiously narrowed, while thick feelings of terror and dread erupted within their minds.
That Wu Dong had actually lost an arm in such a short span of time?!
That Mu Chen's unexpectedly that formidable? Relying on his strength at Heavenly Completion Stage Initial Phase, he not only forced Wu Dong to retreat, he even caused him to lose an arm?! How is this possible?!
The hearts of every expert tremored in shock as their expressions continued to fluctuate.
At this moment, Liu Ying had also seen the current state of Wu Dong. Therefore, the dark shadow originally present on his face became even darker to the point of being able to frighten people. Clenching his hands as tightly as he could, his handsome face had started to slowly warp and distort. That waste Wu Dong! He had actually been injured into such a state?!
While fury exploded within Liu Ying's heart, Xia Youran was also baffled by the scene unfurling before her, with her beautiful eyes brimming with shock and astonishment. She knew that Mu Chen being able to represent the Northern Heavens Spiritual Academy meant that that he definitely possessed some redeeming qualities to warrant so. However, she never imagined that the latter would actually be able to injure Wu Dong to such a degree in such a short span of time.
Regardless of anything, that Wu Dong's a person that had experienced the Human Body Disaster. Although he had failed to pass through it, he was still much strong than any other normal Heavenly Completion Stage. However, it seems as if she had still underestimated that little fellow Mu Chen.
Gently crossing her jade-like arms in front of her ample bosom, Xia Youran breathed a sigh of relief, while the chilling intent originally present on her lovable face completely faded away. Staring amusingly at Liu Ying, whose handsome face had slightly warped, she said, "Look's like your wish didn't come true, after all."
Hearing her words, Liu Ying's gaze turned dark as fury and angry rushed out of his heart. With a dark voice, he replied, "It's too early to be happy. Since Wu Dong's useless, let me personally test how much he's worth!"
As his voice rang out, Liu Ying stomped his foot, sending himself rocketing straight into the sky. In an instant, an extremely powerful wave of Spiritual Energy swept out from him like a giant sphere. Unexpectedly, it caused the spatial gales wreaking havoc in this region to be completely unable to reach within a range of a few hundred feet of him!
This scene instantly caused the crowd of experts to feel shocked as dreadful expressions appeared on their faces as they looked towards the figure radiating with a terrifying aura. Tremors shook through their shocked hearts a they thought, Is this the highest level of the younger generation in the Northern Heavens Continent? From the looks of it, that Liu Ying might have already passed through the first of the Three Sovereign Disasters, the Human Body Disaster, right?
"This Liu Ying wants to personally take action!" Some people exclaimed out in shock, before their gazes turned scorching hot. Generally speaking, a person on the level of Liu Ying would only personally take action at the area of the baptism. No one ever imagined that he would actually be forced to take action by Mu Chen, whose strength was only at the Heavenly Completion Stage Initial Phase.
"You dare, Liu Ying?!"
Frowning deeply, with a move of her alluring body, Xia Youran shot forward like a bolt of lightning, appearing right before Liu Ying. Spiritual Energy that blotted the skies immediately swept out from her, causing her exquisitely voluptuous and alluring body to glow with luster. This caused her skin to appear as white as snow, resulting in her looking incomparably alluring and soul-stirring.
A deep roar of fury rang out from Liu Ying. Sending a dark gaze towards Xia Youran, who had obstructed his path, a fierce roar rang out, "Step aside!"
"I advise you not to go too overboard, Liu Ying!" replied Xia Youran. At this moment, her lovable face had turned ice-cold as wave-like Spiritual Energy that blotted the skies swept out from behind her, appearing like a giant sea. Faced against Liu Ying, who was radiating a terrifying aura, not a single hint of fear nor dread was present on her, as her ice-cold voice rang out through the sky.
"With me here, I'll absolutely not let you touch a single bit of him!"
Hearing her reply, Liu Ying's face grew even more cold and dark. Seeing Xia Youran wanting to protect Mu Chen to such lengths caused the flames within his heart to flare to greater heights. Unable to contain his impulsion to rip the latter into thousands of pieces, he took a step forward. Waves of pressure formed by Spiritual Energy that blotted the skies enveloped Xia Youran as an explosive roar rang out, "Then, I'll see if you've any ability to prevent me from touching single bit of him!"
"Come and try!"
As she roared her reply, Xia Youran had similarly taken a step forward, coming into a head-on collision with him. Two powerful Spiritual Energy pressure waves smashed violently against one another, causing thunderous explosions to ring out. As the pressure waves expanded out, the breathing of quite a few experts present below turned sluggish, with them not daring to take deep breaths of air. From the looks of it, the two characters present within the peak of the younger generation in the Northern Heavens Continent seemed to be ready to take action against one another.
The surrounding atmosphere appeared to have frozen up, with even the rampaging spatial gales being unable to blow in their vicinity.
Within the air, the two figures coldly stared at one another, with the atmosphere being of mutual hostility.
As the two people stood in confrontation, Mu Chen had already smoothly reached the deepest region of the tornado. Within its eye, the incomparably rampant spatial winds were completely absent. The calmness here and the flurry of turmoil outside formed two pictures that were at the extremities of each other.
Floating in the eye of the tornado, Mu Chen sent his blazingly-hot gaze towards his front, where a clump of light radiated with dazzling brilliance. Within the centre of the clump of brilliance was a bone that appeared to be made of jade, quietly floating within. Indescribable fluctuations radiated from it, causing the surrounding air to slightly tremble.
This was a pressure that caused even the heavens and earth to tremble.
The pressure of a Heavenly Sovereign!
That jade bone was without a doubt left behind by a Heavenly Sovereign!
