The Underworld Continent Demonic Mounts that dived down into the pirate fleet exploded out and split three ways, entering the fleet.
The sky full of whistling seemed to stop momentarily, the ear shattering explosions halted, everything stopped inthat second, as though time had slowed down.
The sudden ambush caused Mei Chen Xiu’s face to change: “Ambush….”
Before he could finish his sentence, the consecutive explosions overpowered his voice.
His eyes opened up, a blade aura that was over 100m long brought forth a hair standing whistle, and ferociouslysmashed into a pirate ship that was in front of him. The sturdy hull smashed into countless of pieces like paper.
A gigantic ball of fire birthed out from the ship, the dazzling explosion of white flames seemed to be forming amonster from hell, it quickly swelled up and devoured the entire ship.
Mei Chen Xiu’s face turned white, his hands cold.
His mind was in a mess, his knowledge surpassed others, but he was always responsible for giving advice, and afterarriving in the Southern Region, he finally got to lead. In the past, his battles were always against pirates. With hisknowledge, adding the Honorable Martial Continent’s elites acting as his backbone, facing other pirates, it wassimply overwhelming victories. He rarely needed to fight a bitter battle, and it was his first time facing such adifficult situation.
The instinctive fear occupied his state of mind, it was as though he had received a huge hit to his head, his face wasfilled with nothing but fear.
In terms of reacting to danger, he was beneath his pirates subordinates.
Maybe it was due to their low achievements, the experienced pirates were all unorganized, but when it came topreserving their lives, they were all better than Mei Chen Xiu, a military general from a life of discipline. All of thepirates had completely lost control, with only one thought in their mind, run!
The remaining pirates that remained on their ships completely ignored the pirates that had jumped ship, while theHonorable Martial Continent elites on the
boats wanted to take control of the situation, but facing the crazy pirates,they could not even control any flowing water. The fear of death caused all the coward pirates to becomecompletely nuts. Anyone who tried to stop them from escaping became their enemies. They moved insanely withbloodshot eyes, drowning the Honorable Martial Continent elites who wanted to stop them.
They pounced to control the ships like a school of bees.
“Turn! Quickly turn!”
“Fucking turn now!”
Mei Chen Xiu who finally regained his senses did not even have time to speak and was spun by a huge force, causinghim to fly and hit the ceiling. Bang, he struck the ceiling, causing him to become muddled. He tried to maintainbalance, and at the corner of his eye, he glanced onto the aft, and was immediately stunned.
The aft was gone.
The pirate ship’s aft was hanging by the back, and was trying to escape.
The pirate ship had just moved 30m, when a blade aura over 60m long soared down from the sky and shot straightinto the hull, and the pirate ship immediately became a large regiment of flames.
Mei Chen Xiu who had lost his spirit sat with his butt down on the floorboard, his mouth revealing a bitter smile.Pirates were ultimately still pirates, if it was the Honorable Martial Continent Army, at least they would have thediscipline, and he would still be able to counterattack, but now, he had no hope.
~I performed badly too.~
Knowing that he had no way to run, Mei Chen Xiu became calm instead.
The fleet was in flames, in the air, the pirate ships had became large fire regiments, floating and burning.
~They are truly strong.~
Mei Chen Xiu’s tactic standards were out of the norm, at the moment where he calmed down, his mind started tounderstand the enemy’s intent.
~The target of the enemy’s first wave was aimed for the pirate ships on the exterior. More important, the degree oftheir attacks. The ships were bombarded so badly they lost the ability to attack and fly, but at the same time, theydid not fall to the ground and crash.~
~Their goal is most likely to use the floating fire regiments to prevent the other pirate ships from escaping.~
Mei Chen Xiu was aghast at the opponent general’s brazen ambush.
~A complete wipeout, the other party plans to wipe us out, and thus will do this.~
It had to be said, although he was the opponent, he admired the enemy’s general.
He simply walked to the broken end of the ship and admired the battlefield. ~Since we are incapable of doinganything, why not admire the enemy’s performance.~ He was truly curious about Shi Sen. He had just entered theSteel Mountain Continent, and the only possibility was that the other party had followed them by their tail, andsecretly followed them. ~How could I not have sensed them at all! I have been careful the entire time, and did notslack, but I did not sense any trace of the enemies.~
~How did they escape my senses?~
~They must have a unique method.~
In the air, the black figures reorganized, all of them looked like a group of black bats, they would suddenly scatterand suddenly converge, they moved extremely weird, causing the enemies to be unable to grasp them.
Mei Chen Xiu was surprised, the enemy was not large, at the maximum of 600 men. ~How could 500 to 600 menhave such fearsome fighting ability?~ Even in Honorable Martial Continent, 500 to 600 men could only go against asingle pirate ship, and the unit would not be any ordinary unit.
After observing for a moment, the surprise on Mei Chen Xiu’s face disappeared, replaced with seriousness.
~They are real elites!~
Although they were few in numbers, but every single one of them were elites, at the very least Silver Rank Saints,causing Mei Chen Xiu to be stunned. When he focused, he saw the equipment on the soldiers, causing Mei Chen Xiuto gasp with cold air, a man who originated from Honorable Martial Continent.
The black armor and blades were no ordinary products, but that was not the surprising thing, as the ShangContinent’s black gold was widely known. The rumored black gold was most suitable to create warship weapons,and was an extremely expensive material used to make such warship weapons, to actually use the black gold tocreate armors, it was truly a waste!
The blue spears on their backs looked familiar to Mei Chen Xiu, when he suddenly remembered about the batch ofEmpyrean Ice Tree Spears that appeared on the market.
~Could it be….~
Mei Chen Xiu’s nose turned runny, but when his eyes landed on the myriad of light auras on the black armoredsoldiers, he became dumbstruck like a chicken, as though he was struck by some spell.
~Those are spirit objects!~
It was not surprising for Mei Chen Xiu to recognize spirit objects. No one else had more spirit objects than theHonorable Martial Continent, as their research was at the top in the entire Sacred Saint Galaxy, and the HonorableMartial Continent’s martial technique system were related to spirit objects.
Even for Honorable Martial Continent who was widely known for their spirit objects, they were not so extravagantfor each soldier to have one each!
Seeing the pirates being cut down like vegetables, Mei Chen Xiu’s hands started to tremble.
The powerful warriors all armed to the teeth, every single one of them was a killing machine.
The White Pirates had gone through equipping by the Honorable Martial Continent, and was stronger than any regular army. Furthermore, this batch of White Pirates was specially selected by Mei Chen Xiu, although they did not have high attainments in tactics, they had the strength to make up for it.
But against the enemies who were armed to the teeth, the White Pirates looked like beggars.
But with the wide disparity in strength between both parties, the other party did not have any intent to fight alone.
They were always in groups of three to five that would suddenly gather or scatter, like countless of tributaries thatwould split and connect, but every time they attacked, they would quickly gather to assault together, even if theenemy was one man.
The almost ancient and mechanical strategy did not have high efficiency, but it made Mei Chen Xiu feel fear. Itrequired an extremely high mutual understanding, and required extreme discipline, demanding powerimplementation ability.
It was this mechanical separation, gather, and killing that caused the sky to be filled with fire. One after another, theflaming regiments caused the entire place to turn red. The dense clouds were all scattered due to the rising heat.
The sunlight shot through the holes formed by the scattering of the clouds, lighting up the entire battlefield.
Mei Chen Xiu even suspected that the entire fight was in the hands of the enemy’s general.
~The enemy’s general…~
Mei Chen Xiu looked around to look for him, and quickly found him.
The other side’s general was extremely obvious, in the figures of black, Shi Sen’s entire dazzling gold armor madehim look like a god of war.
The armor that looked like it was made up of gold released a dazzling gold light, he was unable to make out thefigure on the armor. The tyrannically terrifying aura from the person moved like a gold needle around.
~That is also a spirit object, but…..~
Mei Chen Xiu was overwhelmed with shock.
He had never seen such a powerful spirit object before, the gold luster made it look like it was liquid gold, thesurface of the armor looked to be flowing from head to toe. The gold helmet looked like a eagle head, its gold armorso bright that it caused his face to be shrouded, leaving only a pair of cold eyes. On the back of the armor was a pairof gold wings, as though it was made out of thin gold pieces layer upon layer, it was extremely magnificent.
One of the Sword Forest Stronghold’s six armors, the silver grade armor [Shiny Wings] from Aquila Constellation.
After the constant nourishment in Sword Forest Stronghold, it had absorbed a countless amount of energy, it hadbecome a gold armor, and thus change its name to [Gold Wings]!
Armor equipment was rather unique amongst the star treasures, when comparing equal grade star treasures, armors were stronger than the rest. Even in Heaven’s Road, gold armors were few, and only the 12 Ecliptic Palaces had them, while the other constellations could produce at most silver armors.
With Evening Snow Ocean in hand, Shi Sen who was clad with Gold Wings was invincible in the battlefield.
Gold Wings and Evening Snow Ocean released an energy undulation that could shatter mountains and churn theseas, countless energy scars appeared in the sky, the dense sea of clouds were evaporating quickly.
Every blade that the Evening Snow Ocean released would have a length of over 150m long and left white streaks asit swept by, which was the surging energy that converged on the blade aura.
The Gold Wing’s gold light was mystical, all the blade auras were as quick as lightning, and wherever the gold lightflashed, it would shoot through a ship.
~How is that possible….~
~How can there be such a powerful spirit object in the world.~
Honorable Martial Continent’ elites’ deaths and injuries occurred due to counterattacks, because they weresurprised by the launch of the Demonic Mounts. All the pirates were in complete disarray, all of them franticallyrunning in different directions.
Shi Sen ignored those fleeing pirates, they were all sporadic, and leaving them to the Steel Mountain Continentguards would suffice.
He only needed to destroy the pirate ships, and the sporadic pirates would be lost without anywhere to run.
Shi Sen who was using the Gold Wings for the first time was equally shocked at the might produced from it, but evenmore so excited and eager. He badly wanted to go to the frontlines and let the Honorable Martial Continent armieswitness his power.
He took a deep breath and suppressed the raging fighting intent.
Noticing that people were evaluating him, he lowered his head and glanced down, and realized that there was ayoung man with pale face looking at him.
~Is that Mei Chen Xiu? I never thought he was so young!~
~Yet another talented youth~
Shi sen felt faintly regretful, but without hesitating, he gently waved Evening Snow Ocean, a blade aura immediatelyslice through the air and through Mei Chen Xiu’s body and into the warship.
A regiment of flames enveloped the entire warship.
Without looking, Shi Sen spun his Gold Wings and flew up. In that whistling scream, many black figures flew out likeblack lightning out of the battlefield into the air, and converged behind him.
The Underworld Continent Demonic Mounts had completely gathered in the blink of the eye, above the flames, theydisappeared into the horizon.
The war, had just begun!
