Xu Ye’s pale face was filled with shock.
He was thrown to the side by Tang TIan, and watched the entire process of the battle. His mind was completely in amess after watching Tang Tian slash out, the determined slash that Tang Tian had placed all of his hopes in. He wasaffected completely by the scene, in his mind, Master Ghost Face Mask was already an extremely powerful figure,and such a person should cherish his own life, instead of walking into danger.
But Master Ghost Face Mask was the opposite of his own judgement, he did not know why his Master would be ableto unleash such a determined slash. He felt extremely ashamed, and yet he gained some enlightenment.
From the ancient times to the present, in the face of the vast and boundless Laws, humanity was negligible like dust,if they did not have such courage, such determination, and continued to be afraid of the slightest things, how couldthey pry into the obscure mysteries?
He was like a statue stuck to the same spot.
The Death Thumb Ring in his hand quietly released Death Aura, and Xu Ye’s body was being corrupted at a visiblerate, like a withering tree.
His face turned pale white, but his eyes blossomed a bit of light aura that was becoming brighter and brighter.
In the other direction of Sharp Wind City, amongst the crowd, there was an ordinary looking old man, his face wasashen, and a thread of fear in his eyes. All around him, no one would had guessed that he was the famous Lu ShengXiang, the true ruler of Galloping Horse City.
He looked at Ghost Face Mask who resembled a God of War in the air, and without a word, he disappeared from thecrowd.
He was not the opponent of Ghost Face Mask.
Lu Tian Wen had died to Ghost Face Mask, and both parties no longer had leeway for harmony. There are manythings that if right from the get go becomes wrong, then there would never be any leeway for changes, and it wouldeither be you be wiped out or I die.
p;Family was faced with unprecedented danger, and to hesitate or pause for even a single moment at such atime could plunge them into the deepest of pit at any moment.
Tang Tian’s gaze swept through the entire field, it was as though an oppressive might was coming out from his eyesthat suppressed everyone, causing them to tremble with fear.
Suddenly, a figure flew out and like a regiment of smoke, flew out of the city fervently.
A blue light flashed in the sky.
It was like a blue light arrow that shot straight into the figure.
The person escaping fervently froze, his mouth was wide open, but before he could even scream out, he lost controlof his body and flew out 200m away. Everyone then saw clearly who it was, Ao Gu Man, who had already lost his lastbreath and had died.
That blue light was like an illusion, as it had already returned back to Tang Tian’s side, but was even more alluring.
Everyone’s heart turned ice cold, no one dared to move.
Even the powerful Ao Gu Man was nothing in front of Ghost Face Mask, no one dared to move anymore. Fu ZhengZhi stared blankly at Ghost Face Mask who was still floating in the air, his heart feeling complete defeat.
~How is that possible?~
~How can he be so strong?~
Fu Zheng Zhi had thought of all different ending scenarios, but not this one, the ending before his eyes. He hadthought up of countless of plans, but none of them had any use anymore.
He finally understood what a joke he was, all of the plots that he wanted to put, how laughable they were.
~In front of Ghost Face Mask, I am but just an ant.~ If Fu Zheng Zhi had known how powerful Ghost Face Mask was,he would never had those thoughts. ~But, why is Ghost Face Mask’s strength so much different from the reports?~
Fu Zheng Zhi immediately realised.
~All an act, that’s right, it was all a ruse. This powerful martial artist that is standing at the peak, had been pulling mealong, acting the entire time. He had purposely created such a huge momentum for himself, to create a facade thathe is just a weak but famous martial artist, since such a person is the sweetest prey in Sin Domain.~
~That’s right, Ghost Face Mask had been acting as the sweetest prey all along, attracting countless of hunters, but inthe end, this prey revealed his sharp teeth.~
~This is a large trap for the hunters.~
~Ghost Face Mask had cheated the entire Sin Domain, his ruse was extremely successful, when all the huntersgather, they would then realize that they were the prey, just like me.~
~What a well crafted and thought out plan!~
Endless fear crept up Fu Zheng Zhi’s heart, he only felt that he had been so foolish and so complacent, to actuallychallenge such a terrifying man.
The power that the top 10 ranks of the List of Powerhouses wield was enough to make people tremble, adding onsuch a well crafted plan, how terrifying was that.
~Who can challenge him?~
Fu Zheng Zhi’s mind suddenly thought, but very quickly, it was thrown to the back of his head, ~It won’t be me.~. Atthe moment, he had to consider how to preserve his own life, Ao Gu Man was killed while running away, whichproved how powerful Ghost Face Mask was once again, it also informed Fu Zheng Zhi that running was definitelynot a good idea.
~What should I do?~
Countless of thoughts flashed past his mind, Fu Zheng Zhi’s back was perspiring in cold sweat, he knew that his lifeand the Fu Family’s fate was relying on this one thought.
In the next moment, Fu Zheng Zhi made a decision, and in the silence, he knelt down on the ground.
“Sharp Wind City wants to surrender!”
Xiao Han Guang stared blankly at Fu Zheng Zhi who was kneeling on the ground, ‘shameless old man’, he scolded inhis mind. Fu Zheng Zhi’s reaction was extremely fast, as it caught him unprepared, but he had to respect Fu ZhengZhi to be able to bow and submit upon seeing that the situation was not to his side, and make such a quick decisionand to be able to throw his face, it required some standard.
~Compared to that old fool, I am still too inexperienced.~
Xiao Han Guang sighed in his mind, but knowing that he had no other way out, he could only kneel as well: “Xiao HanGuang is willing to surrender!”
Seeing that the two strongest men had knelt down, everyone else no longer had any other thoughts and knelt down as well, and shouted: “We surrender!”
Ghost Face Mask floated in the sky arrogantly, like a Monarch descending.
But no one knew that he was extremely joyous at the moment, his gaze landed far away, towards the endlesshorizon, he secretly clenched his fist, ~The battle has just begun.~
Suddenly, he ‘eh’ out loud once, he turned and looked outside the city.
Such a dense Death Aura!
There was an extremely dense death aura that was expanding at an astonishing rate.
~That place….~ Tang Tian immediately knew who it was, Xu Ye!
It was as though the gates to Hell had opened in that direction, the surging death aura was fervently reeking out.The Death Aura got denser and denser as it exploded crazily.
Tang Tian wanted to rush over to take a look, when he suddenly stopped, his eyes constricted with a look of shock.
Bang, a surging black light pillar soared into the sky, straight into the clouds!
It released a circular shock wave that was filled with dense Death Aura, sweeping through the entire Sharp WindCity. The already silent Sharp Wind City was so quiet that even the sound from a needle dropping could be heard.Everyone was dumbstruck, their mouths wide opened as they watched what looked like Doomsday.
The blood in their faces had receded, despair and fear filled their eyes, was Sharp Wind City going to be annihilated?
The pure Death Aura brought along the sense of death. Aside from those who trained in Death Laws, the ordinarypeople would instinctively avoid such auras.
Fu Zheng Zhi who was kneeling down was aghast, the dense surging death aura made him think of a spirit object.
Death Thumb Ring!
The ultimate treasure of Death Laws!
Fu Zheng Zhi’s face changed, along with Xiao Han Guang, who also thought of the Death Thumb Ring.
That is…. Tang Tian watched the surging black fiery pillar that shot into the sky, the death aura that was spewing outwas so dense that it was almost congealed. He was overwhelmed with shock, the scene before him reminded him ofHe Xin, and the scene where the gates of Hell was opened. ~Is that the Death Thumb Ring?~ Tang Tian immediatelybecame anxious, ~Could it be that the Death Thumb Ring I gave Xu Ye that was devouring him because he cannotcontrol it….~
He started regretting, he never thought that the Death Thumb Ring would be so powerful. All along, he did not havemuch hopes for the spirit objects of Sin Domain. Compared to Star Treasures and Spirit Treasures, the spirit objectsin Sin Domain, other than the material used to construct them, there was no noteworthy thing about them.
But the scene before him was Tang Tian’s first true witness of the spirit objects in Sin Domain. He suspected that HeXin was able to unleash his final technique had to do greatly with the Death Thumb Ring.
Tang Tian instantly had the impulse to save Xu Ye.
But not only would he be unable to help Xu Ye if he were to make a move, but would instead harm him. Xu Ye hadpreviously sustained from serious injuries, and his vitality was eroded greatly, it was like a defensive line that washeavily damaged, and there was no way to stop the incoming dense Death Aura.
Xu Ye’s body was already being taken over by the Death Aura.
If it was another person, they would had long become a corpse, and ultimate devoured by the black flames anddisappear.
But Tang Tian knew that Xu Ye still had a fighting chance, a fighting chance that was almost zero. Because X Uyetrained in the Life and Death Laws, he held this precious chance of surviving.
Life and Death was basically light and shadow, two different sides to the same coin, always in contrast against eachother but unable to survive without the other.
Even if one trained in Death Laws, they would never be able to completely remove vitality. They only had a uniquemethod to suppress the vitality, and allow the Death Aura to be more prominent.
Xu Ye trained in Life and Death Laws, and if he was able to find the vitality in the endless Death Aura, he would havethe chance to survive through it. In theory, the densest Death Aura would definitely have the purest vitality. It is likeunder the most intense of light would there be the darkest shadow.
As long as he found this vitality, Xu Ye who trained in Life and Death Laws would be able to transform the dense Death Aura into nourishment for this thread of vitality and become stronger.
The change between life and death is extremely profound and abstruse, and only Xu Ye could save himself.
Tang TIan could only suppress the impulse and bite his lips.
~Xu Ye, you must survive!~
He didn‘t even look down at the captives who were kneeling before him, as his eyes remained fixated on theterrifying pillar of fiery darkness.
Wave after wave of Death Aura converged and formed a black wave, it was like an ocean wave as it continuouslyswept the air above Sharp Wind City. Ghost Face Mask remained like a sturdy boulder in the sky, unmoved by thewaves even when the black wave struck him, as though it was nothing.
This caused the people below to revere him even more.
Death was the most terrifying laws, and such dense death aura was basically unblockable, and anybody’s life wouldcontinuously be eroded in the face of such death aura.
Only Xiao Han Guang had lifted up his head, a strange glint flashed past his eyes, he could clearly sense that therewas a layer of tranquility surrounding Ghost Face Mask, and even when the Dense Death aura collided into it, itcould not cause any vibration on the layer of serenity.
~Demon Six Seals, Ghost Face Mask cultivates the real Demon Six Seals!~
Tang Tian’s eyes suddenly erupted with light.
