To say Bai Yunfei was feeling anxious was an understatement now. Cursing to himself, he released the Fire-tipped Spear and began to go through a series of hand seals!
The flames around him exploded with so much power that the barrier around him collapsed immediately under its pressure. They exploded straight up into the air like a pillar of flames before coming back down to coil around his arms.
The last hand seal was finished with great haste. Clenching both hands, Bai Yunfei pressed his arms to his side and allowed the flames to grow and twist around his arm with concentration.
Bellowing loudly, Bai Yunfei lashed out with both arms to release the massive amount of power within them!
The Dual Dragon Burst!!
Flames burst forth from his fists with explosive energy. They expanded in the air as they traveled outwards and away from Bai Yunfei to form two giant dragons and coiled around each other. Roaring as they flew, the two dragons beelined straight for the water-type Soul King!
The Soul King’s eyes widened with shock. He hadn’t thought Bai Yunfei could unleash a move as powerful as this so quickly. Snarling, he exploded with a blue and black light to feed even more soulforce into his weapon. The rod began to glow with an unprecedented level of blue light as if gathering up energy before he swung it!
As if stirring at the air, the rod began to leave ripples of blue energy where it traveled. The ripples disseminated through the air without at all losing color, and in time, it was like a transparent blue ocean was left all around the Soul King!
The Soul King was moving with his rod as well. His movements were almost rhythmic and timed with the rod so that it seemed like the ocean was expanding with each step. Waves of elemental water poured forth from both him and his weapon and quickly took the form of a gigantic water dragon with slivers of black light to act as its scales and add to its might!
Just like Bai Yunfei, the water-type Soul King let loose a mighty roar and then thrust his rod to send the dragon towards Bai Yunfei!
Unshackled by the rod, the dragon exploded forward like an arrow to destroy the Dual Dragon Burst!
The three dragons collided with one another to explode in a beautiful show of red and blue light as they fought for supremacy!
The force of the explosion was great enough to make even the earth shake. All sorts of energy flew everywhere away from the explosion zone and even began to warp the air enough that it looked like the world was starting to crack. Not even the elemental attack the Mid-stage Soul King sent out earlier was able to maintain its form and fell apart!
“What power! A soul skill like this would be able to defeat a Peak Late-stage Soul King!”
The difference between this Mid-stage Soul King and the other two combatants was only a single stage, but the battle was still something he was powerless to join in on. The only thing he could do was simply retreat to a safe distance and wait.
Even the Late-stage Soul King looked greatly surprised at the magnitude of Bai Yunfei’s attack. His breathing was somewhat labored as he regained his breath, but the man sneered afterward. “Hmph! Impatient for a victory, are we? Very well then…continue wasting your soulforce! The more you do, the easier you’ll be to defea—!
“What?! But…” The Late-stage Soul King picked up the aura of a powerful object coming through from the explosion. A gigantic mountain was coming at him!
The Cataclysmic Seal!
“It’s that size-changing soul armament!” The Late-stage Soul King realized.
He jumped backward and waved his rod to send another wave of elemental water to stop the Cataclysmic Seal.
The waves traveled forward for about a hundred meters or so before it slammed into the Cataclysmic Seal. Like ripples coming into contact with a tremendous wall, the elemental water was spread up and back through the air before falling back down like rain.
But it didn’t stop the Cataclysmic Seal, the brick had only trembled slightly before continuing onward!
“Impossible!” The Late-stage Soul King’s face went white. It was hard for him to believe that his attack could be so easily stopped by a single soul armament like this. He wanted to try again, but he knew the attack would only be in vain and decided to flee the attack radius of the Cataclysmic Seal instead.
A cold voice struck out at the Late-stage Soul King from behind the Cataclysmic Seal, freezing the man instantly!
And that was the moment when his fate was decided!
By the time the Late-stage Soul King regained control of his body, the giant ‘mountain’ was already upon him!
The Soul King exploded with bright blue light as he tried to form a tortoiseshell around him with it. Shaking both arms, two black clamshells appeared in front and behind him for him to stick together with a layer of black light to fully close him off from the world.
The Cataclysmic Seal slammed into the strongest defense the Soul King had to offer with devastating force!
The barrier of elemental energy from the Late-stage Soul King was something that could stop the attack of a mid-heaven tier soul armament. For the Late-stage Soul King, this type of power was already enough to be happy with, but even that had crumpled like a piece of wet paper in front of the Cataclysmic Seal. The Cataclysmic Seal continued onwards to slam into the tortoiseshell of the Late-stage Soul King and immediately cracked the shell after a brief second of contact!
Then under the horrified eyes of the Late-stage Soul King, the Cataclysmic Seal slammed into his direct body!
He was basically the size of a gnat in front of the Cataclysmic Seal. Like a gong being struck, his body was slammed into the wall with a heavy thud. Then…he flew away from the Cataclysmic Seal like a kite without a string!
A bloody mist escaped from the Late-stage Soul King’s mouth as he flew. His eyes were hazy and unfocused. Both his arms were laid uselessly by his side, unable to retain enough strength in them to hold onto a weapon. A tendril of fire snaked all around his body as if threatening to burn him if he moved!
This was the +10 additional effect of the Cataclysmic Seal: Flame Twister!10% chance to activate ‘Flame Twister’ and restrict the mobility of another by 10% for a maximum of ten seconds upon attacking.
Sent flying away by the devastating force that was the Cataclysmic Seal, the Late-stage Soul King crashed into the ground roughly a kilometer away from where he started and left behind a giant crevice from where he fell!
The Mid-stage Soul King exclaimed absent-mindedly. He was horrified to see the Late-stage Soul King defeated. He was alive, yes, but his aura was weak…meaning he couldn’t fight any longer!
“Ah!!!” But then he let loose a horrified scream a moment afterward!
That was because the Cataclysmic Seal had turned directions to come flying after him! It was about half as large as before, but that didn’t make it any less intimidating to the Mid-stage Soul King. He saw what it did to the Late-stage Soul King, there was no way he could defend himself from this!
Golden light erupted from him as he prepared to turn around and flee.
But there it was again! That word that made the Late-stage Soul King freeze!
The Mid-stage Soul King wasn’t able to do anything as he froze up and was hit by the Cataclysmic Seal! He flew away as a mangled mess with blood flowing freely from his body!
The giant Cataclysmic Seal returned to its proper size and flew back to Bai Yunfei’s side, who looked a little pale. He had also a slightly irregular breathing pattern; this battle with the two Soul Kings had been a little more taxing than he’d hoped!
But now that they were dealt with, Bai Yunfei could turn his attention to the left!
Killing the two Soul Kings would’ve required just a bit more energy and time, but those two were a type of currency Bai Yunfei had very little to spare. That Late-stage Soul King might’ve been out for the count, but Bai Yunfei wasn’t sure if the man had some kind of last-resort technique. It’d be unwise to provoke him any longer if he could avoid it.
So he chose to start running in the direction where no Soul King could be felt. Speeding off in that direction, Bai Yunfei made it about a kilometer ahead before he came to a screeching halt!
Nearly a hundred people gathered just a thousand steps ahead of where he was. They were all Soul Exalts, but not a single one of them looked panicked. They stood there evenly spaced from one another and glowed a dark gray light!
Someone cried out from within the crowd. The others quickly took up the call themselves before shooting out a beam of black light at Bai Yunfei!
Hundreds of beams of light flew from every direction like a dark python or meteorite towards Bai Yunfei!
