Chapter 1745: Dragon Emperor’s Mystique
Surrounded by the dragon emperors and revered dragons, Wu Yu and Sky Heart Dragon Emperor was facing off in a vast empty s.p.a.ce outside of the Saintly Dragon’s Domain.
This place was nearing the Saintly Dragon’s Domain and therefore ordinary mystical dragons wouldn’t be here on most day.
With the other dragon emperors and revered dragons surrounding the area, the sparring match was only witnessed only by mystical dragons with high standings.
“I like to see what you are capable of now!”
Sky Heart Dragon Emperor stood upright before Wu Yu, emanating his aura without reservation.
He’s one of the 9 Great Dragon Emperors of the Immortal Dragon Imperial Realm and one of the strongest in the mystical dragon tribe. He wouldn’t believe Wu Yu had the strength to defeat him.
“You know it soon!”
Wu Yu detested Sky Heart Dragon Emperor from a long time ago. However, the difference between them was too huge in the past.
In fact, he had to expend all his strength to defeat Empyrean Revered Dragon previously, let alone Sky Heart Dragon Emperor.
The previous time he was in the Immortal Dragon Imperial Realm, Wu Yu wasn’t a match for Sky Heart Dragon Emperor at all.
However, Wu Yu believed he definitely wouldn’t lose this time.
“The legacy of Victorious Fighting Buddha isn’t just a tongue in cheek. Any one of the Mystiques in the legacy would enable me to challenge and defeat opponents of a higher cultivation realm than me.”
Wu Yu knew his strength clearly. Since he dared to raise the challenge, he had the confidence to defeat his opponent.
The only match he ever lost was the one against Dancing Flame Phoenix Lord. This was something that bothered him as he truly wanted to know the mysterious encounter that Dancing Flame Phoenix Lord, or rather Nangong Wei, had experienced……
Unfortunately, Wu Yu didn’t have a clue up to this point.
Sky Heart Dragon Emperor and Wu Yu were both important figures to the mystical dragon tribe. This battle was followed closely by all the dragon emperors and revered dragons.
They didn’t really believe Wu Yu could defeat Sky Heart Dragon Emperor. However, what if there was an exception.
Everyone knew Wu Yu had made numerous miracles since he entered the sky palaces.
Regardless, the answer would be known soon.
Sky Heart Dragon Emperor transformed into his dragon form. As the golden mystical dragon appeared across the sky, it also signalled the start of the sparring match.
“I’ll let you know that the honor of a dragon emperor shall not be tainted!”
The majestic voice of Sky Heart Dragon Emperor reverberated across the field with overwhelming pressure cras.h.i.+ng on Wu Yu.
Wu Yu was lazy to engage in words with him. Since the battle had started, defeating the opponent would be the utmost important. Words were pointless at this juncture.
Watching Sky Heart Dragon Emperor rose to the sky in his dragon form and terrifying pressure forming swiftly, Wu Yu could tell he was about to release a powerful Mystique. Immediately, he used Lawful Embodiment of Heaven and Earth!
“Apotheosis Mystique, Heaven’s Synthesis!”
Following Sky Heart Dragon Emperor’s growl, Wu Yu noticed a terrifying power emerging from the Qian Kun s.p.a.ce around him. Moreover, the surrounding Qian Kun s.p.a.ce was collapsing in on him.
Wu Yu’s body glowed brilliantly, forming an extremely powerful s.h.i.+eld.
When the layer of s.h.i.+eld was just formed, Sky Heart Dragon Emperor’s apotheosis Mystique finally landed.
To Wu Yu’s surprise, the Qian Kun world around Wu Yu started compressing under the influence of the apotheosis Mystique. After, it formed a sphere around Wu Yu.
There sphere exploded and the gathered strength of the Qian Kun world caused a void shattering effect.
It had only been a short while and the s.p.a.ce where Wu Yu was had collapsed completely.
Even though Wu Yu was in his Vajra s.h.i.+eld, he was shaken from the tremors. Terrifying void shattering power constantly bombarded him with each wave stronger than the wave before. Gradually, his Vajra s.h.i.+eld was wearing off.
Till the end and after unknown waves of void shattering power, the golden s.h.i.+eld around Wu Yu finally crumpled completely.
Fortunately, Sky Heart Dragon Emperor’s apotheosis Mystique, Heaven’s Synthesis, happened to end at the same time and the surrounding s.p.a.ce finally moderated.
Wu Yu could feel the terror just from watching the s.p.a.ce that was moderating.
Wu Yu furrowed his brows.
Just this apotheosis Mystique of Sky Heart Dragon Emperor was clearly stronger than some immortal buddhas of Heavenly Buddha’s Domain.
Even though they were at the same cultivation realm, there was different tiering in strength.
However, Longbrowed Arhat Immortal Buddha had comprable strength to the current Sky Heart Dragon Emperor after devouring all the mortals in his buddha world.
The current Wu Yu could still withstand and face Sky Heart Dragon Emperor directly.
Sky Heart Dragon Emperor was a little shocked to see Wu Yu escaped unscathed as the s.p.a.ce around him folded.
Initially, he thought he could crush Wu Yu with the void s.p.a.ce with just the Heaven’s Synthesis Mystique. To his surprise, Wu Yu took it head on and yet didn’t seem to suffer any damage.
This gave Sky Heart Dragon Emperor new insights to Wu Yu.
“Now I understand why you have the guts to defy a dragon emperor like me.”
Sky Heart Dragon Emperor lifted his mystical dragon’s head and his eyes glowed like lightning. With contempt, he berated, “However, with just this meagre strength of yours, you are still miles away from defeating me!”
As he completed his words, kaleidoscopes of light unleashed from his eyes. The dazzling beams of lights shone on the land, covering Wu Yu entirely instantly!
When the kaleidoscopes of light shone, Wu Yu couldn’t react on time.
He shut his eyes instinctively. However, shutting his eyes did nothing as he still felt the dazzling light from Sky Heart Dragon Emperor penetrating into his apotheosis realm, gaining control over the existences within.
Sky Heart Dragon Emperor’s voice resounded from a far distance away.
Purify was the name of this Mystique of Sky Heart Dragon Emperor. It was also his apotheosis Mystique but was a lot more formidable than the Heaven’s Synthesis he used previously.
Wu Yu could feel the purifying light taking control over his apotheosis realm. In fact, he even felt his consciousness blurring.
If this continued, Wu Yu would probably lose all sense quickly. Together with everything in the apotheosis realm, he would be controlled by Sky Heart Dragon Emperor.
This was an exceptionally terrifying Mystique and Wu Yu was caught unprepared.
Following a flash of light, his apotheosis realm was under the control of his opponent without any harbinger.
It became extremely difficult for Wu Yu to just resist now.
He maintained the last bit of his clear mind as he thought hard about a way to counter this move from his opponent.
“Ha ha ha! Wu Yu! Now that your apotheosis realm is under my control, what do you have to fight me in battle?”
Sky Heart Dragon Emperor laughed heartily. His voice seemed to have resounded from a far distance away, reminding Wu Yu that his consciousness is fading.
“I can’t let him control me like this!”
Wu Yu gritted his teeth, started visualizing the inner ape and recited the scriptures of the Invincible Vajra Body. With it, his mind cleared a little. He could also hear the spectating dragon emperors and revered dragons discussing.
“Looks like Wu Yu is about to be defeated. Caught in Sky Heart Dragon Emperor’s Purify Mystique, it’s almost impossible for an immortal emperor of a lower cultivation realm to resist.”
“The apotheosis realm is the core of an immortal emperor. Once one’s apotheosis realm is controlled, it will be the end. It’s a matter of time for Sky Heart Dragon Emperor to gain complete control over him.”
“You’re right. It’s just a matter how long Wu Yu could hold on. A junior like him would likely not be able to counter Sky Heart Dragon Emperor’s Mystique.”
The dragon emperors and revered dragons seemed to conclude Wu Yu couldn’t hold on.
Wu Yu naturally felt indignant about their conclusion!
The discussion of the dragon emperors and revered dragons aroused his will instead. He contemplated the Mystiques at his disposal and finally thought of a way that might be able to resist Purify!
“Spirit Chaser Art!”
This was the technique Wu Yu had thought of.
This was one of his 72 Transformations and a technique of equal tier like his Violent Art and Fixed Body Art. After he recultivated it to become an apotheosis Mystique, Wu Yu had not used it before.
The main reason was because he never had the occasion to use this technique.
However, he felt the Spirit Chaser Art was the best technique to go against Sky Heart Dragon Emperor at this juncture.
The next instant, a clear and bright power arose from his apotheosis realm. With overwhelming strength, it weakened Sky Heart Dragon Emperor’s control over his apotheosis realm slightly shortly after it was used.
At that moment, Sky Heart Dragon Emperor couldn’t believe it.
The insignificant Wu Yu could still resist him?
Instantly, he increased his stength and wanted to crush Wu Yu’s resistance in one push.
However, the power of Wu Yu’s Spirit Chaser Art exploded like a geyser. before Sky Heart Dragon Emperor could react, Wu Yu had repelled Sky Heart Dragon Emperor’s strength out of his Devouring Apotheosis Realm!
Following the explosion of strength, Wu Yu regained control over his body. His Devouring Apotheosis Realm also broke free from Sky Heart Dragon Emperor’s penetration.
The Purify Mystique was similar to a technique that control one’s spirit. For Wu Yu, only Spirit Chaser Art could resolve it. It just happened to have a technique that counter perfectly.
Sky Heart Dragon Emperor was shaken. However, this didn’t distract him in battle.
When he felt his spirit control had failed, he used another apotheosis Mystique decisively.
This move was Sky Heart Dragon Emperor’s natural Mystique. When he used it, the entire mystical dragon body seemingly transformed into the sky palaces, symbolizing the will of the sky palaces.
Heaven’s Heart, the heart of the sky palaces!
When he used this Mystique, everything around seemed to fade.
Wu Yu could only see endless clouds before him that emanted terrifying willpower. At the same time, recitings resounded from all directions as though trillions of living creatures were chanting some form of scriptures.
Wu Yu felt his Devouring Apotheosis Realm shaking and constantly quivering. His immortal spirit was also impacted by the trillions of recitings.
Almost instantly, Wu Yu felt his head splitting and even his Devouring Apotheosis Realm was being ripped apart.
Sky Heart Dragon Emperor’s natural Mystique in his dragon form was surprisingly formidable!
Now, Wu Yu couldn’t sense anything around him. All he could hear was the trillions of head splitting recitings as he felt he was about to collapse entirely.
