Ji Hao was punched straight away, while Zhu Rong Tianming remained perfectly unmoved.
Priest Hua chuckled with a reserved manner.
Priest Corpse laughed loudly out, sounding rather scornful.
Bo Qiujia and the other disciples each gave a big grin, as their eyes were almost burning!
Just now, none of these disciples managed to see Zhu Rong Tianming’s move clearly. They released their spirit powers, yet failed to grasp any of Zhu Rong Tianming’s moves. The only explanation was that Zhu Rong Tianming’s power had now exceeded the up-limits of Bo Qiujia and these disciples. And for such a great power, Priest Hua was the one who gave it to Zhu Rong Tianming. Bo Qiujia and the other disciples burned with jealousy. They were so angry, wondering why they didn’t have such a fortune.
Ji Hao was sent over a hundred miles away. His right arm joints were all dislocated, and many bones were shattered, that caused him waves of pain.
He swung his right arm hard to let those dislocated joints to recover. Spirit blood surged up, flushed those broken bones an healed the wounds immediately. Coldly, Ji Hao looked at Zhu Rong Tianming while boosting up the powers of his over a thousand inner spirit stars, bit by bit.
Just now, he only used his physical strength to fend. But this time, the power from over a thousand inner spirit stars surged inside his body like roaring dragons, flushing across his bones and muscles like a tsunami. Ji Hao’s power raised and raised, a hundred percent, a thousand percent, ten-thousand percent…
Golden blood veins bulged from under his skin, while the dreadfully great power of his reached every corner of his body. Everyone heard the loud swooshing noise came from inside Ji Hao’s body, that was caused when his spirit blood surged through his blood veins. The loud noise vibrated the air and generated waves of air blasts around him.
Zhu Rong Tianming looked at Ji Hao in shock. Just now, he punched Ji Hao as hard as he could. Although Ji Hao was sent flew away, his sensed some pain and numbness himself as well.
This new body of his was given by Priest Corpse, and was made from Emperor Xuanyuan’s holy spirit blood and Chaos lotuses. Zhu Rong Tianming sensed the strength of this body when his soul merged with this body. He knew that this was a perfect, almost indestructible body.
By punching Ji Hao, he caused himself a pain and numbness. Therefore, Zhu Rong Tianming began to take Ji Hao serious. Nevertheless, he didn’t think that Ji Hao was actually way more powerful than he seemed to be. At the moment, Ji Hao looked just like a burning volcano that contained a terrifying, scorching power inside his body. At any time, he could launch a destructive attack that would be much more powerful than the defense he took just now.
"What a freak!" Zhu Rong Tianming stared at Ji Hao viciously, then helplessly glanced at Man Man.
If Man Man had a good relationship with him, wouldn’t he be able to bring Ji Hao under his control? With such a great power, Ji Hao could definitely serve as a good helper for the competition for the throne of the human emperor.
But now, Ji Hao would never help him, no matter how.
"Damn it!" Zhu Rong Tianming showed a fierce look, then took a step forward while straightening his right fingers. He lunged his right hand towards Ji Hao’s heart like a dagger.
This was a fierce lethal attack, yet Zhu Rong Tianming’s movement was so natural. No fierceness could be sensed from his moves. Instead, the moves made by him were just natural and smooth. When he launched the attack, a faint lotus aroma spread out from the air. Sensing the aroma, Ji Hao felt so calm that he even wanted to give up on fighting back and simply let Zhu Rong Tianming kill him.
"Dirty trick, not even worth mentioning!" The seed of Dao of sun suddenly burst with a dazzling golden light. Ji Hao quivered immediately, then struggled out from that weird mood that was leading to self-destruction.
He cast a glance at Priest Hua, then released all of his power and launched the combined move, which included the moves of sky-opening, earth-splitting, everything-grow, and everything-perish.
Ji Hao was incredibly furious. Priest Hua was such an ignoble man. Even with his status, he played a dirty trick like this when rebuilding Zhu Rong Tianming’s body. Any weak-minded one might give up on resistance under the effect of this lotus aroma released when Zhu Rong Tianming attacked, and wait for death!
His fist roared out like thunder and released an eye-piercing golden light, striking on Zhu Rong Tianming’s hand like a small sun that left an arc trace in the air.
Followed by an earth-shaking boom, the bones of all five fingers of Ji Hao’s right hand broke. The strong counterforce reached straight to his arm and shoulder. His bones bumped into each other and shattered.
The strong spirit blood streams circulated in his body and healed those bones, even making his bones sturdier than before.
Zhu Rong Tianming was punched by Ji Hao on the hand. His right hand was smashed into a meat pie while his right arm twisted into a strange shape, with a few snow-white, nice smelling, broken bones piercing out from his skin.
Zhu Rong Tianming shouted out in panic, then subconsciously wielded his left fist and punched on Ji Hao’s chest.
The nine suns stainless cloak released a layer of golden light while nine suns rose above Ji Hao’s head. Streams of divine golden light shielded Ji Hao’s body, because of which, the full-power punch launched by Zhu Rong Tianming only managed to force Ji Hao back for tens of miles, but failed to even leave a scratch on his skin.
"Damn it!" Zhu Rong Tianming growled while swinging his right arm. All broken bones recovered along with a series of popping noise, as well as all the other injures. In both shock and anger, he stared at Ji Hao. His lotus body was injured by Ji Hao with a single punch, was this even true?
Ji Hao floated in the air, slowly shaking his fist while silently looking down at Zhu Rong Tianming.
Zhu Rong Tianming’s new body was indeed special. But Ji Hao had also discovered that, at the moment, Zhu Rong Tianming could only release about one percent of the true power of this body. Only after his soul completely merged with this body could he release the power of this body by a hundred percent.
Then, not a single Divine Magus would be able to rival him. Only Supreme Magi and powerful beings above that level could deal with him.
Over a thousand inner spirit stars dimmed gradually down inside Ji Hao’s body. Those linden seeds Ji Hao swallowed had been continuously providing energy for Ji Hao’s body, but these inner spirit stars hadn’t reached the peak state yet. Ji Hao estimated that in half a month, when these inner spirit stars matured, he should be a few times more powerful than now.
"Not bad, truly not bad… Zhu Rong Tianming, Prince Tianming!" Ji Hao restrained his intent of fighting, smilingly nodded to Zhu Rong Tianming and said, "It’s just, are you still Zhu Rong Tianming?"
Zhu Rong Tianming pondered for a while, then turned to Priest Hua.
Priest Hua chuckled, gave a complicated glance at Ji Hao, then flashed across the air and disappeared.
From the air, Priest Hua’s voice could be heard. "Tianming, you have already inherited the holy spirit bloodline from Emperor Xuanyuan. Now, you’re a descendant of Emperor Xuanyuan. From now on, your name is Gong Sun Tianming, and you are going to compete for the throne of the human emperor as a prince of You Xiong Family!"
Zhu Rong Tianming nodded, held his hands behind his body, then looked at Ji Hao proudly and said, "Zhu Rong Tianming? Who is Zhu Rong Tianming? I exist in the world only as Prince Tianming from You Xiong Family!"
Ji Hao was speechless, and in the distance, the fire of anger spurted from Man Man’s eyes.
