Chapter 1678: The Young Are Getting Truly Formidable
The Divine Sinister Space Palm was a unique technique created by Wu Xie. Not only was it capable of dealing damage through space itself, it also contained the destructiveness of the spatial dao and could instantly unleash an astonishing level of destruction.
The palm noiselessly descended upon Xie Lou, striking him before he could even react and causing a spot on his body to sink in. A large amount of draconic blood flowed, and even his draconic scales fell off his body.
Tens of such palms were unleashed in succession, with each palm focused on the same spot. The diabolic dragon was too big to even dodge the attacks, and his defenses were helpless against the spatial palms. Xiang Shaoyun was able to send his primal chaos energy deep into the draconic body, and he started destroying the diabolic dragon's life force.
"Damn it! I'll eat you alive!" Xie Lou had a tenacious life force. With a roar, he gathered all his strength and spat a breath of evil energy toward Xiang Shaoyun.
Diabolic Dragon Curse!
The breath of energy contained a thick curse power capable of instantly obliterating the life force of anyone hit by it. The Diabolic Dragon Curse arrived rapidly, and Xiang Shaoyun hurriedly moved out of the way. However, he failed to avoid it in time. Thus, he decided to not bother with trying to dodge it and instead released a burst of pure energy from his forehead.
Light of Wisdom, purify the world!
That was the Light of Wisdom unique to Xiang Shaoyun. With his entry into the God Realm, the Light of Wisdom had also gained an unimaginable power. It was able to push the power of light to the limits, gaining the ability to purify all that was evil. When the Light of Wisdom clashed against the curse, the curse seemed to have encountered its nemesis and rapidly withered away. Before long, nothing was left of it.
"What?" Xie Lou exclaimed in fear. He had not imagined that his curse would be countered so easily.
"The power of light is the perfect tool against evil creatures like you," muttered Xiang Shaoyun as he realized the best way to fight Xie Lou. At times, more strength wasn't the most effective method of destroying an opponent. Rather, using a restraining power would be a better option.
Xiang Shaoyun pushed his speed to his limits and formed a bright sword with energy before slashing at Xie Lou.
Dazzling Sky Sword Technique, eighth stance: Dashing Shadow Fleeting Light.
Instantly, the area was flooded in a bright white light that condensed into numerous spheres of swords that proceeded to explode. Xie Lou could feel an extreme sense of discomfort that filled him with disgust. He swept his tail forth, slamming it into the spheres of light.
Xie Lou, with his formidable strength, was able to halt the advance of the spheres. He then attempted to push his attack further forward to reach Xiang Shaoyun. Unfortunately for him, Xiang Shaoyun had just gotten started with his attack. Boundless light energy gathered around him, forming a domain of light filled with countless swords of light. The swords shot toward Xie Lou.
That attack seemed to contain the flavor of a myriad of swords returning to their nest. Xie Lou's baleful energy expanded without stopping as all his scales stood on end and pumped vast amounts of baleful energy into his surroundings. Even a sixth-stage God would not be able to survive the onslaught of the baleful energy.
However, the power of light was the bane for an evil power like that. Thus, Xie Lou's attack seemed rather weak as the countless swords of light stabbed into him, spilled a copious amount of blood, and caused a large number of his scales to fall. He looked incomparably miserable.
Looking at the completely helpless Xie Lou, Huang Baiwu was stunned. "Is someone who has fused nine powers really so scary?"
He could see that Xiang Shaoyun was only a second-stage God, but the combat strength Xiang Shaoyun had demonstrated was heaven-defying. Even in his peak condition, he might not be Xiang Shaoyun's match.
"This worm seems rather capable. He's actually able to last this long against my boss," said Little White coldly.
"If you were the one against this opponent, you would have died long ago," said Little Azure with disdain upon hearing the disparaging manner in which Little White was speaking about a dragon.
"That worm might be strong, but he won't be my match," said Little White confidently. "On the other hand, you might be turned into dragon fodder if you go up against him."
"If he's not your match, he definitely won't be my match either," said Little Azure unyieldingly.
And thus, the dragon and the tiger started bickering.
Xie Lou was completely covered in blood. Realizing that he wasn't Xiang Shaoyun's match, he no longer dared to continue fighting. He charged through the space around him in an attempt to flee. "Just you wait. The Diabolic Dragon Clan will not spare you."
Xie Lou might be fast, but Xiang Shaoyun was faster. He no longer attacked with his palms alone, as the Divine Yin Yang Sword had appeared in his hand. A sword ray powered by the dao of time swept through layer upon layer of space to land on Xie Lou.
The sword slash was too terrifying. It instantly sliced Xie Lou's body, spilling even more blood. Xie Lou was further frightened and put even more effort into fleeing. He did not dare to wait even a second longer there.
"Do you think you can escape me?" This was Xiang Shaoyun's first battle after he became a God. How could he allow Xie Lou to escape him? He swung his sword over 1,000 times, powering each swing with the dao of time, causing the passage of time to flow rapidly. Not even Xie Lou could evade the invasion of time as he suffered numerous wounds on his body.
"If you dare to kill me, there is nowhere you can hide from my clan!" threatened Xie Lou, who was thoroughly frightened at this point.
"What a coincidence. I do not intend to spare the Diabolic Dragon Clan either," said Xiang Shaoyun. He rushed ahead and released the power of yin and yang from the tip of his sword, flooding his surroundings with chaotic destruction and foiling Xie Lou's attempt to heal his body. He burst out with an attack toward Xie Lou's devil core, causing Xie Lou to be further injured.
With a grabbing motion, Xiang Shaoyun caught the devil core in his palm. He could see Xie Lou's soul in the core; the soul was wearing an endlessly scared expression.
"Don't worry. You still have some worth, so I'll let you live longer," said Xiang Shaoyun with a cold smile. He then used the Nether Dragon Soul Curse on Xie Lou. Only by putting Xie Lou under his control would he be able to plant a spy among the Diabolic Dragon Clan, which would help his cause against the diabolic dragons.
Surprisingly, the Nether Dragon Soul Curse had failed.
"You better release me. Your curse won't work on me. After all, the Diabolic Dragon Clan specializes in curses," roared Xie Lou.
"I see. In that case, there is no point in keeping you alive," said Xiang Shaoyun with a sigh. A burst of power gathered in his palm and erased Xie Lou's soul from the core.
Huang Baiwu saw that clearly, and he couldn't help but exclaim, "The young are becoming truly formidable."
