Chapter 766: Sky-devouring Evil Remnants
Danzhou was an extremely flourishing place. The mountains there undulated like soaring snakes, and there were abundant spiritual herbs.
At the bottom of a remote cave amidst the mountains, an underground palace could be found, where a round blood pool was bubbling with hot air at the center.
Numerous red-clothed believers lay prone on the ground and surrounded a round blood lake. 3 to 4 thin strokes of blood marks could be seen on their wrists.
As fresh blood “trickled” into the blood lake, the sincere believers with agitated looks in their eyes were pale and had dried lips, but they did not intend to flinch at all. They looked like they had gone mad as if they were pilgrims.
Above the blood pool, a red figure could be seen standing in the air.
All of the believers looked sincere when they looked at the figure, who suddenly opened his eyes. Without any cold intent, he whistled and announced excitedly, “My efforts of searching for over a century were not in vain; I finally found Sir Devil God’s inheritor.” He sounded agitated like an old man weeping bitterly.
“Congratulations, Master, for finding Sir Devil God’s inheritor. God bless you, Master,” the believers shouted at the same time while looking mad.
“Alright, alright, alright, if Sir Devil God resurrects, your contributions won’t be forgotten.” Blood Shadow shook his head.
He descended from the sky and yelled, “Worship the blood lake!” A sound was suddenly heard from his interspatial bag, then a big red cauldron landed on the ground. The big cauldron was as red as blood, and it gave off a killing intent. With a sincere look on his face, Blood Shadow had burned 3 long red incense. He took the lead by kneeling in front of the blood lake and uttered earnestly, “Sir Devil God, you’re ever triumphant!”
“Sir Devil God, you’re ever triumphant!” All of the believers shouted, causing the atmosphere in the underground palace to reach a greater height at that moment.
The red lights inside the believers’ eyes seemed to be able to melt the ice!
Without warning, a cold scoff was heard coming from the sky!
“Hmph, Blood Shadow, so this is where you’re hiding.” The voice was calm, but Blood Shadow’s face changed because he could sense that the voice belonged to the 10,000 Beasts Venerable One. It was a Venerable One at the peak, and it was nearly invincible in the Spiritual Real, hence he could not resist it at all.
At the same time, the 10,000 Beasts Venerable One showed up. It raised its palm and smacked down hard, which was a forceful, overbearing, and unreasonable move.
All of a sudden, fog that was within roughly 3.3 kilometers from the mountain stream surged and reversed to form a golden palm, which seemed to have emerged from a dark crack. The palm carried an earth-shattering killing intent, and the fingerprints on it were clear to see. Following that, enormous coercion from the Venerable One came down from the sky and caused the universe to quake.
The golden light was concentrated and seemed to have become the only light in the world that could suppress the Sun. It transcended space and blasted toward the underground palace’s cave.
Blood Shadow’s face changed. He shrieked and only had one thought at the moment, which was to escape!
He fled regardless of the costs because the attacker was the 10,000 Beasts Venerable One, which was the most powerful being from the 10,000 Beasts Ridge. He looked hurt because he had put in a lot of effort to gather the believers, and yet he could only abandon them at the moment.
With that, he flashed outside the cave without any delay...
The instant he charged out, the golden palm closed in.
It struck down hard like a heavy mountain, causing the underground palace’s cave to be smashed into powder. Subsequently, the palm turned into a fist to attack the blood pool at the speed of light.
“Boom!” There was a deafening roar in the universe.
A storm that could shake the work spread with the underground palace as its center and with an appalling black light. The believers, who were praying sincerely around the blood pool, were squashed like glasses being cracked by powers that were beyond their withstandable limits. As for the storm, it did not stop as it continued to sweep everything in its surrounding. Wherever it touched, gravels were crushed, plants were destroyed, demons and beasts were eliminated; everything turned into nothing, by which the storm was the only thing left.
This was the work of the 10,000 Beasts Venerable One. Any hit that it made could resonate with the universe and release immeasurable power.
Even a top-grade Spiritualist would die without a doubt upon being touched by the storm.
Blood Shadow’s face turned ghastly pale at the sight of everything. A chillness rose to the top of his head, then he suddenly transformed into a blood light and fled into the distance.
The 10,000 Beasts Venerable One sneered. “Are you trying to leave after fooling me with your illusion clones? I’ll definitely kill you today!” It flashed and immediately pursued Blood Shadow. As such, 2 explosions were heard as one escaped while the other pursued.
Blood Shadow was not on par with the 10,000 Beasts Venerable One, but he was not outdone by the Venerable One in terms of his flight and sudden burst. Although he could not widen the gap between them, he made it difficult for the Venerable One to catch up to him.
2 rainbows zoomed past the mountains and into the boundless distance.
“Blood Shadow, you can’t get away!” The 10,000 Beasts Venerable One roared angrily. It wanted to seek justice for Ou Yangming, so it would not hesitate to go to the ends of the Earth.
It increased its speed to the maximum and sped up to approach Blood Shadow.
Blood Shadow was terrified, but he did not show it and noted coldly, “10,000 Beasts, if you continue to chase after me, I won’t reconcile with you for sure!”
The 10,000 Beasts Venerable One responded with a playful smile, “I’d like to see how you’re going to make me feel more dead than alive.” Next, it released its massive momentum again and suppressed the countless living beings on the ground such that they shuddered with fear.
As time passed, the distance between Blood Shadow and the 10,000 Beasts Venerable One reduced.
The 10,000 Beasts Venerable One would occasionally release wind blades, which made things more difficult for Blood Shadow. The closer they were to each other, the harder it was for the red figure to dodge the attacks. Even though he learned miscellaneous tricks, there was too huge of a disparity between them.
Blood Shadow gritted his teeth and struck his chest, then he spat out a mouthful of essence and blood. A strong energy fluctuation was released, and it was also incredibly mighty despite not being on the 10,000 Beasts Venerable One’s level.
“Blood Flight!” Blood Shadow sounded hoarse and looked pale. It was evident that the secret art was not easy for him to use.
The essence and blood instantly transformed into a blood fog that enveloped Blood Shadow while he turned into a red light. Afterward, he went across the space like a thunderbolt to head toward a lower mountain. He was so fast that he had reached a Venerable One’s limit.
Even so, the 10,000 Beasts Venerable One remained calm and composed. Without making any move, a white fog was suddenly released behind it, causing it to accelerate as well. It could not stop sneering, and a scornful look could be seen in its eyes. “Interesting—let’s see how many times you can use your Blood Flight.”
The 10,000 Beasts Venerable One hastened forward. It became slightly further away from Blood Shadow, but Blood Shadow would not be able to get rid of it completely.
Blood Shadow’s heart sank. He reached out to touch his round ring, and he looked like he was struggling and fearful. After pondering for some time, the red figure gritted his red teeth, causing a soft “click” to be heard. He put the ring away and shook his head as he thought, ‘Unless I’m at a moment of life-or-death, I’m not willing to get involved with that person at all. It’s not that I don’t want to, but he’s too fearsome. Being one of the Sky-devouring Evil Remnants’ branches, I’m already revered by many, but that person’s more dazzling than me.’
Once again, Blood Shadow adopted the secret technique. The little color left on his skin was gone after that.
Blood Shadow’s Qi and blood became weaker, where his Qi movement was faintly discernible. Furthermore, his hair was in a mess, and his clothes were tattered by wind blades, making him look terrible. If one was in his place, nobody would believe that one was a Venerable One.
After 3 days, the pursuit and escape went beyond Danzhou.
The 10,000 Beasts Venerable One laughed out loud and said, “Hahaha, I told you—you can’t get away.” It sounded very confident as if Blood Shadow would certainly fail to get away because it claimed that that would be the case. Its domineering aura echoed in the air.
Now that they had arrived at a field, Blood Shadow made up his mind as he could not care too much anymore.
He crushed the red ring and sneered. “Since you insist on dying, I’ll fulfill your wish!” He was utterly pale, which made him look terrifying.
The ring gave out a peculiar fluctuation, but the 10,000 Beasts Venerable One simply watched without disturbing it.
Killing several Sky-devouring Evil Remnants and Blood Shadow would not be enough for it to vent its hatred. It was being overconfident, but it was because it was the 10,000 Beasts Venerable One.
After some time, an alarming roar was suddenly heard coming from the sky, and it was accompanied by numerous blood fogs.
The momentum was so formidable that it was not inferior to that of the 10,000 Beasts Venerable One. Amidst the fogs, a white-clothed elder stood with his hands behind his back. His hair was completely white, and his face was covered in wrinkles, but eyes were the most striking feature.
To be exact, it was his wild look that could devour even nothingness...
The 10,000 Beasts Venerable One shivered, and its face took on a grave look.
In the sky, the white-clothed elder spread out his hands and uttered calmly, “Wind, rise...” He pointed his left hand forward while he drew something in the air with his right hand.
A storm appeared out of nowhere, by which an intense suction force drew in dust, soil, and gravel. Anything that touched the storm turned into nothing at once, and the storm kept sucking air in the universe. It grew with the wind, and everywhere it passed became chaotic as all lives were gone. Moreover, a ripple appeared in the air, and it looked like carp scales that moved faster and even formed folds in the space.
The 10,000 Beasts Venerable One still kept a straight face. It shouted, “You came at the right time!” While it spoke, a rattle was heard coming from its right hand as it grabbed something below abruptly. A tremendous momentum burst out as it forcibly pulled out a yellow scaled dragon made of gravel and pounced on it.
As soon as the typhoon and the scaled dragon clashed, the earth shook, and the universe was filled with a roar.
Endless winds whistled and whimpered. This was a fight between 2 Venerable Ones at their peaks.
Each time they attacked, the view was majestic as if steam was rising and waves were surging.
Blood Shadow stopped and watched from afar. The fight left an unerasable impression for him, and it would stay with him forever. At this point, he finally realized how potent the 10,000 Beasts Venerable One was.
Yellow sand fell like rain from the sky, and the typhoon was quickly put to an end.
The raging wind and yellow sand made it seem like the world was coming to an end as though they were heavenly powers.
By the time the yellow sand scattered and the typhoon dispersed, nobody was left in the universe—the white-clothed elder and Blood Shadow had disappeared.
The 10,000 Beasts Venerable One scoffed. It looked around for a brief moment before it went far away.
