Chapter 418 – Demonic Rune
The patterns created by the blood on Mo Xingtian's face formed a blood rune that caused people to feel their hair stand on their ends. Upon forming, the blood rune started wriggling and squirming about as if it possessed some form of life. If one looked at it closely, one would notice that the blood rune appeared to have pierced into Mo Xingtian's face, with the squirming actions unexpectedly due to it feasting on Mo Xingtian's fresh blood.
At this moment, his face started to grow slightly slimmer and paler than before.
Such a feeling was indescribably mysterious.
As Xia Youran and the rest noticed this spectacle, all of their faces turned deathly pale, while their eyes were overwhelmed with shock. Never, in their wildest dreams, did they imagine that Mo Xingtian would actually be so ruthless as to pull that card out in this fight. From the looks of it, he truly intended to deal with Mu Chen here, once and for all.
Devouring Dragon Demonic Rune.
This was one of the extremely frightening secret techniques of the Demonic Dragon Palace. It's said that by rearing the blood of a true dragon within one's body, when activated, the demonic rune would devour the host's blood and strengthen itself, allowing the host to erupt with extremely frightening strength.
This secret technique possessed extremely powerful might. However, the requirements it possessed were also abnormally harsh. Of the entire younger generation within the Demonic Dragon Palace, Mo Xingtian was the only person that was able to successfully achieve this. Even Mo Longzi was far from being able to achieve success in this. However, over the past few years, this was the very first time that Xia Youran and the rest have seen Mo Xingtian activate the "Devouring Dragon Demonic Rune", since, in the past, the latter didn't even activate it when crossing hands with them.
Clearly, the need to kill Mu Chen was deeply entrenched in Mo Xingtian's heart.
Under the countless terrified and shocked gazes focused on him, Mo Xingtian trained his deadpan-eyes to look indifferently at the divine imprint enveloping over. With a flick of his finger, the blood-red demonic rune on his face started to slowly peel away, before rapidly expanding to a height of 300 metres. As the bloody glow squirmed and wriggled on its surface, it appeared akin to a coiled-up giant dragon, and a dragon roar brimming with anger erupted out from it.
Pointing towards the sky, a voice completely lacking in emotion rang out from his mouth.
Shooting straight out, the blood-red demonic rune slammed straight against the divine imprint pressing down from above, causing blood-red light to blossom across the horizon. At this moment, the divine seal, which had smashed through Mo Xingtian's Spiritual Energy like twigs a moment ago was now being completely blocked by the blood-red demonic rune, completely unable to move even an inch forward.
Upon noticing this, Mu Chen's eyes slightly narrowed as he felt a chill sweeping across his entire body. At this moment, he could feel an extremely life-threatening flavor from the blood-red demonic rune.
Akin to a net of blood, the blood-red demonic rune started to expand, corroding the divine imprint under its bloody glow. Under that corrosion, the divine imprint rapidly trembled as its vast and boundless might started to slowly decrease. Clearly, the Four Divine Seals weren't a match for the blood-red demonic rune.
Although Mu Chen possessed his cards, Mo Xiantian similarly possessed cards that were sufficient to turn the situation to his favor.
Mo Xingtian spoke out with an indifferent smile as he gave an abrupt clench of his hand, a chilling glint flashed within his deadpan-eyes.
The blood-red demonic rune blossomed with blood-red rays of brilliance, appearing akin to a sea of blood. Under the corrosion of this sea of blood, the divine imprint was completely submerged in an instant.
As the divine imprint was broken, Mu Chen spurted out a mouthful of blood as a hint of paleness flashed across his face. Clenching his teeth, he thought, This Mo Xingtian truly is formidable. He never imagined that the Four Gods Constellation Technique, which he had mastered to the level of great accomplishment, wouldn't be able to allow for him to obtain victory. Naturally, however, Mu Chen also knew that it wasn't that the Four Gods Constellation Technique was weaker than the latter's demonic rune, but that his own strength being at a disparite distance from Mo Xingtian's.
Even after supplementing himself with the fiendish energies of the Great Meru Demonic Pillar, which had allowed him to close much of the distance, his original strength was still at the Heavenly Completion Stage Initial Phase.
"This is the end."
Staring apathetically towards Mu Chen, whose cards had been broken, Mo Xingtian gave a wave of his sleeve, sending the blood-red demonic rune howling out. Covering the earth and hiding the skies, it enveloped over Mu Chen as a bloody glow radiated from it, seemingly sealing away all of Mu Chen's retreat paths.
At this moment, everyone present could see that Mo Xingtian had already decided to wrap up and conclude this fight.
Will this fight come to an end here?
Countless people waited quietly in bated breaths.
At the outskirt of the Divine Spiritual Mountain, the Elders from the various places had their gazes towards the gigantic light screen present, with quite a few people quietly taking a sigh. That Mu Chen from the Northern Heavens Spiritual Academy truly was formidable to be able to force Mo Xingtian to such a step with his strength at only the Heavenly Completion Stage Initial Phase. If he was given a number of years more to cultivate, there might not be anyone within the younger generation that would be able to match up to him.
However, its a pity that geniuses always died young.
From the looks of its, Mo Xingtian had clearly decided to unleash his killing move. It looked like he had also discovered the astonishing potential the youth before him possessed; therefore, he decided to not leave a future disaster to haunt him in the future.
A few gazes turned towards the direction of Dean Tai Cang and the group from the Northern Heavens Spiritual Academy. However, on the contrary, the Northern Heavens Spiritual Academy's Dean still had a calm and collected expression, eyes continuing to focus on the Spiritual Energy light screen. The image displayed within it showed that the blood-red demonic rune had already covered all of the retreat paths Mu Chen could take, while a sea of blood billowed out from it as a murderous aura flared and gushed out.
At this moment, Mu Chen was clearly in an extremely life-threatening situation.
Behind Dean Tai Cang, Luo Li tightly grasped her longsword, with her slender fingers already turning white due to the force she had exerted. Clearly, the situation present before her eyes caused worry and unease to rise within her.
Standing beside her, Ling Xi grasped Luo Li's slender hands before speaking out in a soft voice, "Relax. Nothing will happen to him. If there's truly an unforeseen change, the Dean and I will definitely take action."
Hearing that, Luo Li nodded her small head, before focusing her beautiful eyes towards the light screen. Being somewhat clear about the cards that Mu Chen possessed, she was completely unable to think about exactly how Mu Chen would break away from this life-threatening situation.
The atmosphere within the Northern Heavens Spiritual Academy was a stifling and oppressed one, with all of the students tightly locking their gazes towards the Spiritual Energy light screen. Even Shen Cangsheng, Li Xuantong and the others had hands filled with cold sweat. Clearly, they were able to sense the unfavourable situation Mu Chen was in right now. However, there was absolutely nothing that they could do right now. At this moment, the only thing they could do was to pray for Mu Chen to be able to endure the onslaught. Although, they knew that it was an extremely difficult matter to accomplish…
"Come on, Mu Chen! All of us are watching you right now…"
Shen Cangsheng and the rest spoke out with a soft sigh. The only thing they could do was to support and cheer for him. As for the fight, the only person Mu Chen could rely on would be himself.
Akin to a demon god, the blood-red demonic rune brought about a blood of sea that blotted the skies over. The earth-shattering spectacle appearing before them caused the scalps of countless experts below to turn numb. This Mo Xingtian's undoubtedly the person at the highest peak within the younger generation of the Northern Heavens Continent. This move by him might even be comparable to those peak experts that had passed their Spiritual Energy Tribulation.
From the looks of it, it's already extremely hard for that Mu Chen to turn the current situation around.
Xia Youran's beautiful eyes started to fluctuate with her surging emotions. Finally, with a clench of her teeth, she prepared to take action.
However, before she could even make her move, Liu Ying and the other two before her had already blocked and obstructed her path, before speaking out with an indifferent tone. "Looks like that Mu Chen's dead, without a single doubt. Is there anymore need to cause trouble? In the off chance that you'll provoke Mo Xingtian, it'll not be something nice for you guys to endure then."
Furiously clenching her teeth, Xia Youran shot a vicious glare towards Liu Ying and the other two. However, in the end, she did not make her move, since she knew that she wouldn't be able to shove her way past the obstruction created by the three people in front of her.
Standing behind Xia Youran, both Xi Qinghai and Su Buxiu gave a sigh in the end. Faced against such a strong and powerful Mo Xingtian, they had truly lost quite a bit of their courage and daringness. From the looks of it, they might have to return empty-handed in this Divine Spiritual Mountain's opening.
Under the attention of countless pitiful and sympathizing gazes, a serious expression was present on Mu Chen's face as he looked towards the blood-red demonic rune enveloping over him. The aura of death blasting towards his face caused his heart to rapidly start pumping. In the end, he gave a bitter laugh, while a malevolent shadow started to slowly condense within those black pupils of his.
I, Mu Chen, have faced numerous life-or-death situations in the past few years! However, at the very end, I've endured and passed all of them. I'm afraid that it isn't easy as you, Mo Xingtian think to take away my life!
With a furious wave of his sleeve, a dozen jade bottles appeared in a flash. Appearing to be transparent, those jade bottles were filled to the brim with scarlet-red flames.
Flicking his fingers in succession, Mu Chen smashed all of the jade bottles up, causing the scarlet-red flames to instantly spew out as they shattered apart. As the volume of the flames expanded, they transformed into a sea of scarlet flames, spreading out across the skies with Mu Chen in its centre.
As the temperature skyrocketed, the surrounding space started to warp and distort. Being in the core of the sea of flames, intense bouts of pain racked Mu chen's body. Being completely unable to control those flames, he was being injured just by releasing them in the air.
Mu Chen's actions caused some cries of doubt as everyone clearly didn't understand what he was planning to do.
Xia Youran had also slightly gawked upon seeing his actions. The flames in those jade bottles were a favor that Mu Chen had asked her to gather for him. However, at that time, she didn't know what he was planning to do with them. From the looks of it, is he planning to use them to contend against Mo Xingtian's demonic rune? That's absolutely impossible! Not to mention the fact that he cannot even control those flames! Even if that's a possibility, it's impossible to defend against Mo Xingtian's attacks with only those flames.
Ignoring those doubtful gazes coming his way, Mu Chen continued to stare at the scarlet-red flames that continued to expand out. Disregarding the intense burning pain racking his body, he took a deep breath, before sitting down in the air. Extending his palm out, a purple-coloured flame started to quietly rise from within.
That's the Undying Fire!
During that day, when Mu Chen had helped Shen Cangsheng and Li Xuantong dispel the poison within their bodies, he had managed to obtain a bunch of Undying Fire from Nine Nether!
This Undying Fire was the divine flame that the Nine Nether could produce within her body after her evolution. Compared to the Nine Nether Fire he had fused with before, the might of the Undying Fire was numerous times more powerful. Therefore, it was the final card that Mu Chen had up his sleeves!
Creating a seal with a single hand, a low and deep roar rang out as a suction force erupted from his palm.
As the suction force erupted out, the scarlet-red flames in the surroundings howled as they condensed together, finally transforming into a pillar of flames that rushed straight towards Mu Chen's palm. The flame seedling present there gently flickered, cleanly devouring all of the flames that came into contact with it.
In a short span of a few breaths, the scarlet-red sea of flames that had pervaded the surroundings had completely disappeared. As for the clump of Undying Fire within Mu Chen's palm, it had grown larger by a few sizes, with its dim purplish colour appearing extremely mysterious.
As the flame seedling within Mu Chen's palm surged and increased in size, rays of light radiating from it illuminated Mu Chen's face, causing him to appear exceedingly abstruse.
Raising his head, Mu Chen sent a faint smile towards the distant Mo Xingtian. Merely, the smile was frosty, with not a single trace of emotion present on it. After doing a move that caused everyone to exclaim in shock, Mu Chen raised his palm and swallowed that extremely frightening purple-coloured flame straight into his mouth.
"Since you want my life, let me accompany you. Let's see exact who's the one that will be buried at this place."
Chapter 419 – Victory and Defeat
"What is he doing…?"
Staring dumbfoundedly at Mu Chen, the faces of Xia Youran and the rest instantly turned exceeding spectacle when he swallowed the clump of purplish flames within his body. Although they didn't know exactly what that seemingly weak and small clump of purplish flames was, the scarlet-red flames that had blotted the skies a moment ago had been completely absorbed by those purplish flames. Clearly, that thing was absolutely something extraordinary.
However, at this very moment, Mu Chen had swallowed it just like that…
Such an action that neared the boundaries of seeking death caused everyone to stare at him in a daze, with some people even unable to resist thinking that Mu Chen had known that he was about to die, and, therefore, had consumed the fire to commit suicide…
Standing in the distance, a wrinkle appeared on Mo Xingtian's forehead as he observed this spectacle unfolding before him. Naturally, he would never believe in such a comical reasoning, since Mu Chen was a person with a tenacious character. Even in a situation where death was inevitable, he would fight with all his might, no matter what injuries or how much blood he had bled. A comical act like suicide was clearly not something that would appear in his repertoire of acts.
A vigilant shadow flashed within Mo Xingtian's eyes as he thought, There's definitely something fishy about this. There's definitely something fishy about Mu Chen's action.
"I'll just kill him to avoid anymore things from sprouting up!"
With a change of his hand seal, the bloody glow from the blood-red demonic seal grew even more radiant as the sea of blood grew in size, turning into a complete shroud as it swept towards Mu Chen at lightning speed. As long as Mu Chen was trapped within it, he would be turned into bloody water, absolutely devoid of vitality.
As the sea of blood pervaded out, Mu Chen, who had devoured the clump of Undying Fire slowly raised his head. At this moment, a purplish shadow started to slowly erupt within his originally scarlet-red eyes. Even his skin started to radiate with a purple luster, while faint but rapid shivering shook through his entire body.
It was a spectacular mess in Mu Chen's body at this very moment. Upon entering Mu Chen's body, the clump of Undying Fire was wrapped up by his Spiritual Energy. Generally speaking, when ordinary people devoured this clump of Undying Fire, they might be turned into ashes in an instant. However, Mu Chen wasn't like any normal person out there.
The Spiritual Energy within his body had already fused with the Nine Nether Fire. As for the Undying Fire, it was the evolved form of the Nine Nether Fire, with the two sharing some origins of strength. Therefore, it was due to this that the Undying Fire wasn't able to create destruction upon entering Mu Chen's body.
As the Spiritual Energy within Mu Chen wrapped around the clump of purplish flames, rampaging fluctuations surfaced from within like a surging lake. Slivers of purplish flame seedlings started to break off and drift about, before finally merging together with the Spiritual Energy.
At the instant when the two merged, Mu Chen's Spiritual Energy looked as though it had swallowed a bulking agent, crazily expanding about. In the end, it turned into roaring flames as it circulated at a high speed within Mu Chen's body.
An indescribable strength like an exploding volcano erupted from within his body. This power seemingly appeared in an instant, causing Mu Chen to lose control over his Spiritual Energy. At this moment, the Spiritual Energy within his body was akin to a rampaging wild horse, completely out of control. Rampaging as it circulated around, Mu Chen was unable to bring it under his complete control.
It was too rampant.
Feelings of intense pain radiated from the meridians within Mu Chen's body. Fortunately, having reached a small level of mastery over his Lightning God's Physique made his body much stronger and more resilient than before. If not, it would be completely impossible for him to endure the impacts brought about by the circulation of those energies.
As Mu Chen's heavy breathing rang out, he stared at the demonic rune enveloping over him with his purple-shaded eyes. Not the slightest shred of fear or dread was present in them, without the a slight bit of craziness frolicking within. At this moment, the energies within his body had to be let out, if not, his body would be completely unable to endure bottling them up within him.
Therefore, faced against the terrifying attack sent by Mo Xingtian, Mu Chen didn't evade or retreat back. On the contrary, he took a furious step forward, before sending a fist rumbling out. This was just a straight punch out, without anything fanciful, rumbling violently towards the gigantic blood-red demonic rune descending towards him.
As the fist rumbled out, Spiritual Energy swept out akin to a hurricane, blotting the skies as it gushed out.
Within the Spiritual Energy gushing out, one would be able to clearly see tiny clumps of purplish flames gently flickering as they fluttered about.
Under Mu Chen's fist, the surrounding space started to warp and distort. In that distant, Xia Youran, Liu Ying and the rest a breathed in a mouthful of cold air. How can his fist contain such frightening power…?
Spiritual Energy fluttering with purplish flames that appeared akin to a purple sea of fire smashed straight against the sea of blood. However, this time, the sea of blood that appeared to be invincible before had unexpectedly erupted with dense fogs of blood, rapidly melting away at a speed that was visible to the naked-eye.
As the purple flaming seedlings landed on the blood-red demonic rune, the fresh blood present on it instantly erupted with ear-piercing screeches, as if it was crying out in extreme misery.
Seeing this, Mo Xingtian's expression instantly contorted violently.
"Burn for me!"
A pained low and deep animalist roar rang out as the robes on Mu Chen's body instantly turned into ashes. As if seeping out from every pore of his body, the purplish flame seedlings causing him to appear akin to a god of flames. With a tremble of his fist, it, once again, violently smashed against the demonic rune.
The blood-like patterns on the demonic rune was starting to unexpectedly burn up by the purplish flames. At the end, the purplish flames started to seep through, causing the entire demonic rune to start burning up. With a final bang, the demonic rune that had astonished everyone was completely burnt up by the purplish flame.
A mouthful of fresh blood spewed out from Mo Xingtian's mouth, appearing exactly the same as Mu Chen had before. However, this time, his face appeared even more deathly pale than before, with a sliver of shock erupting from within his deadpan-eyes. He was completely unable to imagine that his Devouring Dragon Demonic Rune would actually be cleanly burned up by Mu Chen's first.
"How's that possible?!"
Turmoil and shock surged within Mo Xingtian's heart akin to storm filled waves, while he was completely unable to maintain his indifferent-looking face anymore.
At the same time, the countless people who had seen this spectacle were all overwhelmed with shock and astonishment.
Who would have imagined that the situation would do a complete reversal in such a quick time?!
Gazes brimming with shock and astonishment swept towards the purplish flames where a naked figure stood within. Revealing his slender body, the youth rushed out from within akin to a god of fire, with purplish intent growing increasingly dense within his eyes. Sending a fist rumbling out towards the demonic rune, he turned his eyes, brimming with slivers of craziness towards the distant Mo Xingtian once again.
The energies within his body had still not been completely released from within his body. If this delayed for too long, he would not be able to endure anymore.
"Come and test another fist of mine, Mo Xingtian!"
Mu Chen's furious howl resounded across the heavens as he took a step forward. Sending a fierce pat out, Spiritual Energy howled without the slightest bit of restraint from under his palm. Instantly, everyone could see a purple ray of light sweeping out from Mu Chen's palm. Seemingly piercing through the currents present in the world, it shot straight towards Mo Xingtian.
Upon seeing this palm, even Xia Youran and the rest could feel their scalps turning numb. They were completely unable to understand why Mu Chen's strength would all of a sudden increase to such a degree!
This incomparably rampaging Spiritual Energy was entirely different from the Spiritual Energy he radiated before!
Exactly where did this power come from?!
Countless doubts and questions surfaced within their minds as the ray of light burning with purplish flames shattered the horizon as it enveloped towards Mo Xingtian.
At this time, Mo Xingtian stared towards the frightening ray of light burning with purplish flames as malevolence started to slowly rise within his gaze. He did not believe that he would actually lose to a Heavenly Completion Stage Initial Phase brat. After the past few years, he had finally become the number one figure within the younger generation of the Northern Heavens Continent. For the sake of achieving this, due to the cruel and ruthless rules within the Demonic Dragon Palace, those compatriots that had trained with him in the past had died, one by one, by his own hands. He had used them to refine and temper his strength. That's because, in a place like the Demonic Dragon Palace, one needed to be cruel and ruthless towards anyone, even towards those compatriots that were once close to oneself!
That's because, the Demonic Dragon Palace only preached the most cruelest rule there was for the sake of nurturing a true expert.
"You don't possess the qualifications to end me!"
Mo Xingtian roared with a fierce voice as his black hair scattered about, akin to a rampaging demon. In the next moment, giving a long roar, Spiritual Energy swept out without the slightest bit of restraint, blotting the skies and seemingly encompassing the entire horizon.
As his Spiritual Energy swept out, it transformed into a gigantic demonic dragon. As it took to the skies, it shot across the horizon, under the countless shocked and astonished gazes, it smashed straight against the incoming purple fire-clad ray of light!
At the instant of impact, the heavens and earth appeared to shake and tremble. As the two frightening energies smashed violently towards each other, both of them started to corrode away as they quickly consumed each other.
However, between the two energies, it was clear that the purple flame clad ray of light was the more overbearing one. As the purplish flames rose up, they continuously burnt all of the Spiritual Energy coming from Mo Xingtian.
The purple flame-clad ray of light inched closer and closer. However, it was similarly being consumed at a rapid pace.
Everyone present tightly stared at the two all-out attacks from Mu Chen and Mo Xingtian.
The purple flame-clad ray of light forced the demonic dragon-shaped Spiritual Energy back to Mo Xingtian. However, just as it reached 3 metres away from Mo Xingtian, the energy within the purple flame-clad ray of light was finally used up. In the end, with the demonic dragon-shaped Spiritual Energy, both of them dissipated into the air.
"You lose!" Mo Xingtian shrilled out. Although he didn't know exactly how Mu Chen was able to erupt with such terrifying energy, he knew that was obviously reliant on some foreign source of power. Furthermore, Mu Chen had paid an extremely high price for that. At this moment, Mu Chen was as pale as paper. Clearly, he didn't possess any strength left to fight. As long as he could resist Mu Chen's strongest attack, this fight would have its result.
Raising his deathly pale face, Mu Chen shot a look towards Mo Xingtian. At this moment however, a ridiculing smile curled up on the corner of his mouth.
"The one that lost, is you."
Upon hearing that, Mo Xingtian's pupils furiously contracted as he saw a tiny black ray of light abruptly shooting from within the destroyed purple ray of light. In the next instant, with an indescribable speed, it pierced through the space.
In such a short distance, Mo Xingtian was simply unable to muster any kind of defense before the black ray of light shot straight towards his forehead.
A black hole appeared on the forehead of Mo Xingtian before his body instantly froze up.
The countless gazes that had shot over had also froze solid.
Regardless of the inside or the outside of the Divine Spiritual Mountain, or the Northern Heavens Spiritual Academy…
The atmospheres in these three places all came to a halt.
Chapter 420 – Kill
Not a single sound was present, with even the winds having frozen up for this instant.
On the Nine Heavenly Steps, everyone present had their eyes open wide as they dumbly stared at the spectacle that had just happened before them. An indescribable feeling filled their minds, causing them to be unable to display any exact expression on their faces.
This spectacle truly was too inconceivable.
Xia Youran's red lips was slightly agape as she stared at Mo Xingtian, who had a black hole appearing on his forehead, before uncontrollably covering her mouth up with her hand.
Next to her, Xi Qinghai, Su Buxiu and the rest had similar expressions, with the astonishment in their eyes indicative with the shock present within their minds.
As for Liu Ying, his gaze was dull and vacant, before a chilling intent penetrated through his heart. Looking up at the half-naked youth floating in the air, deep feelings of dread started to surface from the depths of his eyes. This youth, whose strength appeared to only be at the Heavenly Completion Stage Initial Phase, had truly caused feelings of terror to surface within him.
He was the topmost elite figure in the younger generation of the Northern Heavens Continent. However, he had actually suffered defeat. Exactly how much shock would it cause in the Northern Heavens Continent when this scene gets circulated around?
Across the horizon, the purplish intent within Mu Chen's eyes rapidly dissipated as an extremely strong feeling of weakness started radiating across his entire body. However, clenching his teeth, he refused to let himself topple over as he sent his incomparably cold gaze towards the figure that had frozen up in the far distance.
The jet-black shadow rapid dissipated from his finger. The attack hidden within the purple flame-cladded ray of light was precisely his Black Lightning Poison Finger.
An attack that had come from the least expected time had finally ended that incomparably violent and dangerous fight.
Mu Chen's gaze stared indifferently towards Mo Xingtian's body. At this moment, his eyes were still wide open, with remnants of being overwhelmed with shock displayed on his face. On his forehead, black-coloured blood flowed out from the bloody hole present there, while the jet-black shadow rapidly extended out from there, spreading through his entire body.
The black lightning poison had already corroded Mo Xingtiang's body. Regardless of how strong Mo Xingtian was, an attack like that was more than sufficient to end his life.
Runic patterns suddenly surfaced on Mo Xingtian's body. With a bang, his body exploded in the air. As blood mists rose up into the sky, a ray of Spiritual Light quietly shot out from it.
A dragon shadow surfaced below Mu Chen feet and with a flash, he appeared in the distant sky. With a grab, Spiritual Energy surged out from him, transforming into a light screen before grabbing the escaping Spiritual glow into his hands.
Within the Spiritual glow was an illusionary-like infant. That was Mo Xingtian's divine soul. Furthermore, the face of the Divine Soul was finally overwhelmed with shock.
"Now, is there anyone else that can save you?" Not containing the slightest bit of mercy, Mu Chen stared towards the Divine Soul in his hands as he spoke out in a tone filled within indifference.
"You've already won, Mu Chen! What else do you want?!" A shrieking voice rang out from Mo Xingtian's Divine Soul, the voice filled within inconceivable dread and terror. At this very moment, it was clearly obvious that he was no longer able to remain as calm and collected as before. His Divine Soul had landed in the hands of Mu Chen, with the latter now being truly able to end his very life.
"For all these past years, I don't know how many Northern Heavens Spiritual Academy students have died by your hands. What do you think I'm doing?" replied Mu Chen with a smile, merely that the smile contained not the slightest bit of warmth.
"If you kill me, our Demonic Dragon Palace will never let you go!" Mo Xingtian fiercely screamed out
"Oh, really?" Mu Chen laughed. The Spiritual Energy in his hands surged out, heading straight to shatter Mo Xingtian's Divine Soul. Mu Chen felt extreme dread and terror for the latter. This time, if not for him having prepared the card being the Undying Fire, he might have truly suffered defeat in Mo Xingtian's hand. If that happened, Mu Chen would absolutely bet his life that Mo Xingtian would never let him go.
As of now, after so much trouble, he had finally captured this fellow. Mu Chen wasn't willing to let the tiger back up the mountain to cause a disaster for him in the future.
"Brat, you dare!"
However, just as Mu Chen was about to smash Mo Xingtian's Divine Soul violently apart, a furious roar akin to the peal of thunder resounded out across the heavens. In the next moment, the surrounding space started to warp and distort as Spiritual Energy in the form of a giant hand extended out from within. Upon appearing, it instantly made an attempt to grab Mu Chen.
Mu Chen's face instantly contorted.
"Do you think that our Northern Heavens Spiritual Academy's that easy to bully, Black Dragon Sovereign?!" As the giant Spiritual Energy hand pierced through the space and was about to make a grab at Mu Chen, the space across it started to warp and distort as Dean Tai Cang's furious voice rang out. In the next moment, a giant Spiritual Energy hand extended out from within, smashing against the other hand. As they smashed towards each other, Spiritual Energy gales howled out while the two palms dissipated away.
"Do you think that we're truly afraid of you, you old dog from the Demonic Dragon Palace?! Today, his death is confirmed by me!" Fluttering backwards, Mu Chen's expression turned gloomy. In the next instant, with a furious grasp of his hand, Spiritual Energy erupted out from him, before violently smashing Mo Xingtian's Divine Soul without the slightest hesitation.
A fierce shriek miserably rang across the horizon as Mo Xingtian's Divine Soul exploded apart, transforming into glowing dots that blotted the skies. At the same time, that sharp miserable shriek that was filled with dread and terror reverberated across the skies.
A chilling sensation was felt by everyone one present in this area, rushing from their feet towards their heads as they looked towards the youth present in the air with shock and astonishment completely filling their gazes.
Not a single one of them had guessed that Mu Chen would actually be that decisive, to not have a single shred of hesitation before sending a palm to shatter Mo Xingtian's Divine Soul, completely killing him and removing him from the world.
As everyone looked towards the glowing dots that fluttered out from Mu Chen's palm, everyone's gaze turned blank and vacant. That Mo Xingtian was completely destroyed, just like that? The strongest figure in the younger generation of the Northern Heavens Continent…has disappeared, just like that?
Thick feelings of dread and terror surged within the eyes of Liu Ying, Dong Yuan and Zhou Xuan as their faces were all as white as snow. This Mu Chen's too vicious in his actions! That's Mo Xingtian, you know?! He'd actually been killed just like that…
Was this really a student nurtured by an ivory tower like the Northern Heavens Spiritual Academy? Such decisiveness and ruthlessness! He's simply even more outstanding that those people who had lived their lives on the edge of the blades.
On the side, Xi Qinghai and Su Buxiu took in a breath of cold air, but were unable to speak a single word out. Clearly, they were shocked to the core.
Xia Youran's gaze was also blank as she stared at the youth, who was currently revealing the sliver of a cold, fierce and ruthless expression. At this moment, he appeared completely different from the handsome and gentle image that he had presented himself to her before. The imposing aura and attitude he showed caused a faint flush to appeared on her lovable face as a splendor of emotions flashed within her beautiful eyes.
The Mu Chen at this moment had overpowered and killed Mo Xingtian. The bearing he possessed was undoubtedly extremely eye-catching and dazzling.
The entire stretch of the world had turned silent and devoid of any sound.
After shattering Mo Xingtian's Divine Soul , Mu Chen gave a wave of his palm, summoning back the Great Meru Demonic Pillar into his body. At the same time, it had brought a dimly lit black demonic spear. That was precisely Mo Xingtian's Peerless Rank Spiritual Artifact, the Devouring Dragon Demonic Spear.
Mu Chen grasp the black demonic spear that was received in his hand. After the death of Mo Xingtian, not a single bit of activity was shown from the black demonic spear. Added with the earlier suppression by the Great Meru Demonic Pillar, it unexpectedly didn't dare to muster a single bit of resistance in Mu Chen's hands.
Flipping his hand, he stored the Devouring Dragon Demonic Spear away. An Peerless Grade Spirit Weapon's an absolutely extraordinary thing. Such a thing wasn't even sold in the Spiritual Values Hall of the Northern Heavens Spiritual Academy. Now, having landed in his hand, Mu Chen would naturally not hand it over. After all, although the Great Meru Demonic Pillar was formidable, Mu Chen didn't dare to use its true power. He was still not able to control it, as of now. However, compared to that, this Devouring Dragon Demonic Spear was different from it. Mu Chen's strength would increase by quite a bit if he were to use it.
After retrieving this spoils of war, Mu Chen turned his indifferent gaze towards Liu Ying, Dong Yuan and Zhou Xuan.
Upon seeing Mu Chen's gaze, the hearts of Liu Ying and the other two instantly turned cold, before actually retreating a step back. Although they were all clear that Mu Chen was just putting up a strong front, none of them actually dared to muster any bit of intent to retaliate. Even Liu Ying had eyes filled with dread and terror, not daring to take advantage of Mu Chen's current weakness.
"The three of you. Please wait for the next the Divine Spiritual Baptism," said Mu Chen in an indifferent tone.
The faces of Liu Ying and the other two slightly changed as they shot a look towards Xia Youran, Xi Qingxi and Su Buxiu, who were glaring towards them like tigers. In the end, they clenched their teeth in unwillingness. At this moment, carrying the awe and prestige from killing Mo Xingtian, Mu Chen was truthfully too intimidating to be confronted.
Mu Chen turned his gaze once again towards Xi Qinghai and Su Buxiu. At this time, the two of them appeared slightly nervous, as after all, they did not offer any help. If Mu Chen wasn't willing to allow them to enjoy the Strength of Baptism, they would consider to wait awhile, since they didn't dare to take action and could only feel themselves as unlucky.
"Elder Sister Xia, Brother Xi and Brother Su. The Strength of Baptism's about to descend. Let's go prepare for a bit." While they were feeling slightly nervous, Mu Chen gave a faint smile, while the fierceness within his eyes started to dissipate away. Once again, the face of the youth turned handsome and gentle.
Hearing that, a sweet smile appeared on the face of Xia Youran; after all, she could be considered as to understand Mu Chen's character, and knew that the latter would not be the kind to break his promises. Therefore, his words weren't of any surprise to her. As for Xi Qinghai and Su Buxiu, they took a breath of relief, while feeling slightly happy, before sending grateful gazes towards Mu Chen.
Shooting forward, Mu Chen dropped from the sky, descending to the highest place within the highest step in the Nine Heavenly Steps. Following suit, Xia Youran and the other two shot over, descending on the platform positioned slightly below his. That area was higher than their previous position, which would allow for the Strength of Baptism to increase by quite a bit. The highest position was obviously left for Mu Chen, with all of them not having any complaint about it.
Taking a seat, Mu Chen raised his head and looked towards the gigantic clump of light floating high up in the sky. Over there, the rays of brilliance were growing increasingly radiant, before a clear ring seemed to slowly resound across the horizon.
As the rays of brilliance reached its prime, countless people raised their heads to turn their scorching gazes towards it, only to see golden raindrops covering the earth and hiding the skies as they descended. At this moment, the entire area grew fresh and uplifting, as if the area was being cleansed.
The Divine Spiritual Baptism's finally descending!
