In the moments before the Early-stage Soul King could strike down Bai Yunfei, he saw a large fire suddenly explode outwards from Bai Yunfei to cover him!
And at the same time as the flames ascent, there was a large ball of orange light that shot up towards him!
The Early-stage Soul King watched as his own attack was blown apart by the red light before continuing onwards to strike him!
“What is this?!”
He exclaimed in shock. This was something he hadn’t expected to see! Bai Yunfei’s aura had definitely been extremely weak moments before; how had he possibly so much strength now?!
As his mind tried to come up with a reason why, the Early-stage Soul King was already in the middle of preparing himself to fight off the enemy.
But before a proper defense could be had, a cold voice exploded into his ears like a bolt of lightning to stun his mind!
The fear in the Early-stage Soul King’s face froze when his body did. Not even his soulforce was spared from being frozen in place. The only thing he could do was just watch as the spear-wielding Bai Yunfei appeared right in front of him!
The Fire-tipped Spear was already at his throat and ready to pierce it. But before it could, the spear froze in place!
“…” Bai Yunfei was silent for a moment. Pulling the spear back, he slashed outwards with his left hand!
There was a faint ripple from where his hand traveled before the Early-stage Soul King was forced through it and disappeared from sight!
It took only a moment for Bai Yunfei to capture the Early-stage Soul King and throw him into the Core World. His soulsense was spread all around him so as to find any possible enemies nearby.
The aura of a Soul King was found almost immediately. The Soul King was flying rapidly towards his direction and was already close enough to interfere with their own soulsense!
Bai Yunfei’s hesitation lasted only for a moment. He wasn’t ready to fight this next Soul King. It might’ve been possible to either capture or kill this second Soul King, but that’d take some time and effort. It was also quite risky, and the disturbance in the energy here would make it hard for him to teleport away if he did.
So, he decided, it was best to make use of the Core Stone’s additional effect to teleport away. But his eyes were still looking at the mountain beneath him.
He could see the mountain for what it was now that he was up in the sky. On the slope of the mountain was a stone ring that seemed to spiral up the mountain like a serpent. It was quite strange to see and had several buildings around it. Aside from the courtyard with all the dead students earlier, there were still three other courtyards of noticeable size to be seen. The other three courtyards had also plenty of people within them; most of them seemed like either Soul Ancestors or Soul Sprites and were watching Bai Yunfei in terror.
Just seeing these people and the clothes they wore was enough to make Bai Yunfei furious enough to have his killing intent leak from his person!
“Every soul refiner…must die!!”
The hatred Bai Yunfei had for the Soul Refining School was etched so deep into his heart that it was essentially permeated into his bones. He might not know who these students were as a person, but he did know that they were soul refiners. And soul refiners had to die!!
He couldn’t even think about any frivolous concepts like justice, mercy, or leniency right now. The only thing he could think about was their death!
A furious buzzing sound filled the air as a red light appeared right besides Bai Yunfei. Under the eyes of everyone beneath him, they all watched as the red light turned into a gigantic mountain large enough to blot out the sun above them!
The Cataclysmic Seal!
Without any hesitation, Bai Yunfei gave the command for the Cataclysmic Seal to fall downward!
“Ah!! What is that?! Run away!”
“What in the world is that thing?! Ahhh!! Save me!!”
“Ahh!! Ahh!! Ahhhh!!!!”
Like the scattering of ants, every single student began to run in every direction possible and screamed as they tried to flee.
But how could they possibly outrun the Cataclysmic Seal?!
With a mighty crash, the Cataclysmic Seal slammed onto the mountain and destroyed it!
It was like if a meteorite had crashed onto the earth. With a circumference of kilometers in length, the Cataclysmic Seal had managed to completely demolish the mountain!
From being there one moment to become nothing in the next, the mountain and all of its inhabitants were gone in a single second!
“Ah?! Ah?! Lo—look! Coiling Serpent Mountain is…gone?! But how?!”
“Who is that person?! And what is that?! What is he doing?!”
“Master Lu is gone! He was just fighting that person, where did he go?!”
“What the f*ck is going on?!”
People from beyond the Coiling Serpent Mountain had immediately noticed what had happened to it. It was hard not to. But all they could do was stare in horror and disbelief at the place where the mountain had once stood!
The Cataclysmic Seal shot back to Bai Yunfei’s side as a beam of red light. He looked from the crater left behind by it to the remaining people around him with an impassive look before starting to have transparent ripples of energy undulate from his person.
A violet bolt of lightning cracked across the skies as the Mid-stage Soul King Bai Yunfei sensed earlier came barreling onto the scene ready to take action.
“What?! How did this happen!?”
The lightning-type Mid-stage Soul King cried out in disbelief when he saw the crater. But the bigger source of disbelief came from when he looked at where Bai Yunfei was…he was gone!
And there was no sight of him within several kilometers either!
His eyes honed in on the place where Bai Yunfei had been standing just moments ago. Trying as hard as he could, the Mid-stage Soul King simply couldn’t find where Bai Yunfei had gone!
“Not…not even a Late-stage Soul King should be able to teleport that far!”
The Mid-stage Soul King was shocked. While he was prepared for the possibility that Bai Yunfei might teleport away, the man didn’t expect that Bai Yunfei’s range of teleportation would be able to take him beyond the Mid-stage Soul King’s range of detection…
“Where…where is he?! Where is that person!? Come on out!!”
The Mid-stage Soul King frothed with anger. The only thing he could do was glare at the ruins of Coiling Serpent Mountain and shout out to the heavens for Bai Yunfei to appear!
In the skies a long distance away.
From a transparent ripple of light came the figure of Bai Yunfei.
The first thing he did was look around himself. He was standing in some kind of vast forest now that stretched for as far as the eye could see to his left. To his right was a tremendous mountain with a point that was completely covered by fog so that its slope couldn’t be seen.
The ring on his left hand pulsated with light as Bai Yunfei inspected the area around him. To his relief, there was no enemy to be seen. This meant he was in a place without anyone there.
He didn’t spare any time to look around himself again. Any second spent observing the area meant another second longer he’d need to recover. The damage to his soul was already bad enough; it was imperative that he descend and find a place to recover.
Fortunately for him, there was a small lake near where he was. Glancing at it, Bai Yunfei decided this would be a good place to rest.
“I’ll rest here then.”
Bai Yunfei decided before he suddenly disappeared from sight!
A pebble came dropping from the skies to fall into the water. Softly, the pebble splashed onto the surface of the lake before submerging deep into the lake body…
