"I'll kill her to avenge Brother Huang!" Huo Yuhao exclaimed. He rushed up onto the stage. As he charged up, he also blocked the Third Elder, who was about to take action.
As he leapt up, Huo Yuhao arrived on the stage once again. He took big steps towards Ye Guyi.
Ye Guyi snorted, "Evil soul master, I'll definitely kill you with my sword!" After killing Huang Zheng, her cultivation had increased significantly. Her soul power that had been drained earlier had also been replenished. At this moment, she was bursting with confidence.
Huo Yuhao sighed in his heart, but he still said, "I'll see whether you are capable of doing so."
As the chief judge, Ye Yulin wore a grim look on his face right now. When Ye Guyi revealed her Holy Angel, he was extremely shocked. However, he had the same thought as Huo Yuhao. What a foolish girl! Why did you reveal your holy element in front of evil soul masters, given that you're but a fledgling soul master yourself? Aren't you courting death? If I discovered your holiness earlier and referred you to His Highness, you'd have become a future trump card in dealing with the Holy Ghost Church. Wouldn't that be great? However, I'm afraid now…
Ye Yulin shook his head helplessly; he had already thought it through. Those guys from the Holy Ghost Church are bound to do something now. Since this is the case, I'll do them a favor. Once Tang Wu can't hold on anymore, I'll end the fight. After all, the Holy Ghost Church is going to cause trouble, and I'll have to save Tang Wu. I can't let him be hurt by this Holy Angel.
As he thought to this point, Ye Yulin formed a plan in his mind. He drifted up once again and shouted, "The fight begins!" This time, he didn't even tell both parties to retreat. Since the tournament was already at such an intense stage, he allowed it to continue.
Ye Guyi's sword shook slightly, and she pointed the tip of her sword at Huo Yuhao. However, a subtle voice rang out in her ears at this moment.
"How could you reveal your holiness in front of the Holy Ghost Church? Do you really think the Common Alliance can protect you?"
This sudden voice caused Ye Guyi to be slightly stunned. Although she wasn't slow, she started to become a little doubtful. Who's talking to me? Why does it sound like it's in my head?
"It's me, your opponent." As Huo Yuhao spoke to her, he quickly slid back and avoided her sword.
Ye Guyi laughed coldly and thought to herself. This must be another of the cunning tricks the evil soul masters are trying to play.
"It's not a plot. There are five strong individuals from the Holy Ghost Church over there. The five of them are all at least Titled Douluo, and one of them is even a Transcendent Douluo. Do you think the Common Alliance can protect you?"
At such a close distance, Huo Yuhao could used his spiritual power to communicate with Ye Guyi. Within a ten-meter distance, he could almost read her mind. Of course, this was also because Ye Guyi didn't activate her own spiritual power to resist him.
Ye Guyi pointed her toes to the ground, and her sword formed countless streaks of light. These streaks of light engulfed Huo Yuhao, but she was shocked as she thought to herself, You can sense what I'm thinking?
"My main martial soul is a spiritual-type," Huo Yuhao replied mentally, "as long as you don't resist me too much, I can sense the undulations in your mind and judge what you're thinking."
As he spoke, he performed his Ghost Shadow Perplexing Track using his human-shaped soul tool. His soul tool quickly retreated, and he avoided Ye Guyi's attack.
"Why should I believe you?" Ye Guyi snorted coldly.
Huo Yuhao was a little helpless as he said, "To be honest, I don't know how to convince you. However, I can assure you that the Holy Ghost Church is our common enemy. I'm more determined to get rid of them than you are. However, they are very influential, and it won't be easy. If you want me to prove it to you, I can only do so by defeating you before thinking of a way to save you."
Ye Guyi picked her brows and thought disdainfully, "You want to defeat me? It's impossible even if you're an evil soul master!"
Huo Yuhao felt very helpless as he replied, "Your pride will harm you! Grow up. Let's make a deal. If I defeat you, you'll listen to my arrangements. I'll do my best to protect you. You need to understand that your Holy element is a great threat to these evil soul masters. They'll try to get rid of you before you become truly powerful!"
"Okay. I'll listen to you if you defeat me." Ye Guyi's face was filled with an arrogant look even though she thought that way. She didn't believe that she would lose to a cripple. She had been observing him earlier. She was stunned that he could create a human-shaped soul tool, but she didn't think that he was her match.
Huo Yuhao stopped talking. As he retreated, he suddenly punched his fist out.
Instantly, Ye Guyi felt as if it there was no longer a person in front of her. Rather, it was a huge mountain. A bright-golden fist grew larger right in front of her eyes.
A strong golden-white light rose from her body. Her sword shot out light. As she pointed the tip of her sword forward, she managed to stab Huo Yuhao's fist.
In terms of cultivation, both of them possessed Ultimate martial souls. Huo Yuhao's soul power was still weaker than Ye Guyi's even with the enhancement of his twin martial souls. However, his Soul Power Amplifier now worked to great effect. As their soul powers clashed, a winner couldn't be determined.
Ye Guyi only felt an extremely immense spiritual undulation coming towards her. She felt she was going to be crushed by the aura of Huo Yuhao's Sovereign's Descent!
Huo Yuhao's Sovereign Descent had already been modified, and was different from the original version that Elder Mu had passed down to him. It was also why Huo Yuhao wasn't afraid of letting the Holy Ghost Church's members witness it. At the same time, his Sovereign's Descent was still very strong even without the Goddess of Light to unleash it. The effect of the spiritual power in his Sovereign's Descent was far superior to that of his soul power, which represented the greatest difference from the original Sovereign's Descent.
However, Ye Guyi wasn't like Lan Ruoruo. When she opened her feathery wings, Huo Yuhao felt as if his spiritual power had encountered a holy barrier, and he was completely isolated.
However, his fist also stopped Ye Guyi's attack. He forced her to move half a step back.
He exploited this opportunity, and his aura suddenly changed. A greyish halo surfaced underneath his feet, and his eyes also turned grey.
A greyish soul ring? Ye Guyi was also shocked. She had never seen such a soul ring. It's abnormal, and filled with an evil aura. It can only belong to an evil soul master!
You're a liar. You're obviously an evil soul master!, Ye Guyi thought to herself furiously.
Huo Yuhao was a little helpless as he said, "If I didn't do something like this, do you think the Duskwater Alliance and Holy Ghost Church would trust me? Just remember our agreement; if I defeat you, you must listen to me! Be careful!"
It was obvious that Ye Guyi's trust in Huo Yuhao was greatly diminished when he unleashed the aura of a necromancer. Her sword shook, and she opened her wings. Her feathers exuded a layer of gentle, golden-white light fog. She seemed to turn transparent from the intense light. She was filled with a thick aura of holiness. She pointed her sword forward, causing countless streaks of sword light to shoot towards Huo Yuhao.
When they saw this scene, all the evil soul masters beneath the stage turned dismal. Even they felt slightly uncomfortable before this pure holy strength.
Ye Guyi was only a two-winged Angel, but she was already very strong. When her cultivation grew to seven rings and she gained her Martial Soul True Body, she might grow another two wings. When she reached nine rings, she might even have six wings! When that happened, she would become a very strong enemy to the Holy Ghost Church!
Furthermore, Ye Guyi's appearance also disrupted the Holy Ghost Church's arrangements. If she won the overall competition, the Duskwater Alliance could only give up on controlling the rare metals in the Sun Moon Empire. Although they were backed by the strength of the Holy Ghost Church, they couldn't do it forcefully. After all, Xu Tianran would support them no matter what. However, offending the military and nobility wouldn't tie in with the interests of the Holy Ghost Church when war was getting closer and closer.
It was now a matter of whether Huo Yuhao could win. The vice-leader had already thought this over. Once Huo Yuhao was in a disastrous situation, she would try her best to intervene. Although she would offend the other two parties, it was better than completely losing face.
What a strong Holy Light! Huo Yuhao was in awe. Ye Guyi's holy aura made him feel as if he was immersed in warmth. However, this warmth was trying to corrode his body. If he were really an evil soul master, his abilities would be greatly weakened.
Huo Yuhao quickly retreated and used his right hand to mimic a lifting action in the air. He continued to rely on his Soul Power Amplifier to strengthen himself. A long staff appeared in his palm.
The greyish soul ring that rose from beneath his feet continued to shine brightly. Following this, it rapidly turned golden.
As the golden glow surfaced, Huo Yuhao's human-shaped soul tool was also dyed gold. This gold was different from the gold of his Sovereign's Descent. This gold was much darker, but it was filled with an aura of light.
At this point, Ye Guyi and the evil soul masters beneath the stage were all stunned.
Why is he filled with the aura of light now, even though he seemed to be surrounded by evil energy earlier? How did he manage to perform this trick?
Just as the orthodox evil soul masters were all shocked, and the vice-leader moved forward one step, a low-pitched recitation of incantations sounded from the stage.
As Huo Yuhao pointed his staff towards the sky, a ball of pale-white flame surfaced in the air. It quickly turned into a figure that appeared right in front of him. A white shield descended to block the Holy Light coming towards him!
