With how distraught the Soul King was over the death of his companion, he hadn’t noticed Bai Yunfei coming at him!
But his response when he did noticed had been fast enough. Leaning back the upper half of his head, the Soul King made a hasty retreat to avoid the spear.
Like his shadow, Bai Yunfei followed the Soul King for about a hundred meters so that the spear never left more than half a foot from the Soul King’s head. The two of them continued on like this until they were at the end of the illusionary matrix before the Soul King flew up to the spear with a lightning covered hand. His palm slapped at the shaft, causing the spear to flinch upwards from the blow and granting the Soul King the opportunity to redirect his palm strike at Bai Yunfei’s face!
Bai Yunfei’s left hand came up to stop him. With a pow, the palm strike landed against Bai Yunfei’s arm. Not only strong, the palm strike transferred the elemental lightning infused in it over to Bai Yunfei’s arm, numbing it as Bai Yunfei retreated backwards a few steps.
Now Bai Yunfei and the Soul King stood twenty meters apart. Bai Yunfei was looking a little worse for wear as he struggled for breath. His body was more or less dyed with blood, most of it was from his enemies, but some was his own. Any uncovered part of his body, such as his face, neck, arms, and even the ripped parts behind his trousers were a strangely red glow as if they were being heated up.
But perhaps the most ghastly sight was the blood that was leaking from Bai Yunfei’s wounds. From several different parts of his body where he had wounds, the blood that leaked out were immediately being evaporated into the air to turn into red steam.
The wounds on his face were comparatively less than the ones on the rest of his body, but Bai Yunfei’s face was twisted with pain nonetheless. All five features to his face were twitching as if fighting back the aching pain he was feeling. Even someone who was familiar with Bai Yunfei wouldn’t be able to recognize him as he looked right now….
Anyone could tell that Bai Yunfei was experiencing a great deal of pain right now. The crazed look in his eyes was still as strong as ever. Bai Yunfei didn’t look like himself anymore with everything considered. Even under all this pain, he was still moving with the sole purpose of killing and satisfying his own desires.
The Soul King noted this expression on Bai Yunfei’s face with no small amount of relief. “He’s...he’s as good as finished! I see now….he couldn’t have been that strong actually. He had to throw away his rationality to gain such an obscene amount of strength….the fact that he’s kept it up for so long is an amazing feat in itself…..”
As he was thinking to himself, Bai Yunfei grunted again and stepped forward. He charged forward, the flames around him billowing even more intensely than before!
“Another spike?! Doesn’t he care about his life?!” The lightning-type Soul King panicked. Dodging the incoming spear and then the incoming punch with his arms, the Soul King was forced into a small dance of sorts as Bai Yunfei began to rain spear after punch on him.
“He’s….he’s gone crazy!! A suicidal lunatic!!” He remarked to himself. He dodged each blow Bai Yunfei made, but the more he dodged, the more he began to feel angry at the situation.
“Don’t get cocky! I am a mid-stage Soul King, how could I ever lose to a person like you!!” When Bai Yunfei’s spear came at the left side of his waist, the Soul King grew furious. Grabbing at the shaft of the spear with his left hand, he let loose a lightning infused punch onto Bai Yunfei’s chest!
“You’ll die here!!”
The fist slammed against Bai Yunfei’s chest, cracking several bones in Bai Yunfei’s chest and forcing him to spit out a mouthful of blood that evaporated into the air shortly afterwards. The light in Bai Yunfei’s eyes decreased by a shade as he was sent flying backwards from the blow.
Joy flashed across the eyes of the Soul King. He knew Bai Yunfei had a powerful piece of armor on him, but he put everything he had in this one punch and had even his elemental energy strengthen the blow. With everything combined, his punch would be enough to turn Bai Yunfei’s body to paste even if his armor blocked even half of it!
And it worked!! Several of Bai Yunfei’s bones had been cracked and his flesh had ruptured in several places. When he spat out blood, there had been bits of flesh in it!!
The lightning-type Soul King howled with sadistic glee. Pushing both palms forward, he sent a blast of elemental lightning to char and reduce Bai Yunfei to ashes!
In that split-second, the light in Bai Yunfei’s eyes reignited with increased fervor. Snapping his body straight as if his wounds didn’t even exist, Bai Yunfei spat out another mouthful of blood before staring down his enemy. The grinding sound of his teeth gnashing against one another added to the ghastly figure that was Bai Yunfei.
The Fire-tipped Spear in his right hand shivered with bright flames along with the rest of his body. The flames concentrated to the top of the spear and swelled up. Arching the arm holding the spear back, Bai Yunfei twisted his waist before heaving the spear forward!!
His throwing of the spear had been exceedingly power. The spear flew forward with a trail of fire flying through the skies to come at the Soul King!
It wasn’t until the Fire-tipped Spear was a hundred meters away when the sound of it being thrown was even heard!!
The Soul King was appalled by this. He hadn’t thought that Bai Yunfei would still be capable of unleashing such a powerful attack even now. Snarling, the Soul King reclaimed the elemental lightning meant to attack Bai Yunfei and spun it around to act as his shield to protect him while he tried to move out of the way.
There was a humming sound as the Fire-tipped Spear flew into his elemental lightning shield, and then….
The spear stabbed into his right palm and straight through his arm into his shoulder. Then with a squelch, the spear tunneled back out his body….
From his palm to his shoulder, there was a huge scorched hole going straight through his right arm!!
The concentrated look in his eyes immediately bled away as he stared blankly at the wound on his right arm. Then he looked to the elemental shield in front of him, completely at a loss for words for what had happened….
