Just as Xiang Shaoyun’s attack was about to reach Di Lang, someone from the Di Sect transformed into a raging storm and charged at Xiang Shaoyun. It was obvious that the newcomer was someone specializing in speed. n.o.body from Xiang Shaoyun’s side could stop him in time, and they could only watch on as he stopped Xiang Shaoyun’s attack.
“I’ll kill you first,” declared the wind cultivator with thick murderous intent, taking the opportunity to kill Xiang Shaoyun.
The storm he formed was incredibly powerful, reaching the level of ninth-stage Soul Foundation Realm. It seemed he would be able to easily eliminate Xiang Shaoyun.
“Big brother (holy son-in-law)!” Ye Chaomu and Tuoba Wan’er exclaimed in alarm.
Deathly afraid that something would happen to Xiang Shaoyun, they charged forth recklessly. Gong Qinyin was too weak to charge ahead, so she could only stay at the back and continue to worry.
However, Xiang Shaoyun was not one to be easily killed. He released the Nether Soul Domain and trapped both Di Lang and the wind cultivator. After entering the Nether Soul Domain, the person’s storm was weakened considerably, and the chains shot out and completely destroyed the storm.
He and Di Lang exclaimed in alarm, “What is this place?”
“Your grave,” answered Xiang Shaoyun.
Numerous chains shot out from all directions and attacked the two.
“This is bad. First young master, we need to leave,” said the wind cultivator as he tried to escape with Di Lang.
But by this point, the ghostrunes had already received the order to attack. Their soul attacks came from everywhere, and the attacks were incorporeal and unstoppable. Even a peak Soul Foundation Realm expert would have a hard time against them.
The soul attacks forced the peak Soul Foundation Realm expert to focus on guarding his own soul, and he could no longer be bothered about Di Lang. Di Lang panicked, and he was eventually tied up by Xiang Shaoyun’s chains.
“Little b.a.s.t.a.r.d, release me, or my father won’t spare you,” shouted Di Lang in a fl.u.s.tered manner.
Xiang Shaoyun arrived before him and heavily slapped Di Lang’s face, leaving an entire palm print. He said, “Your father is nothing but a traitor. I will kill him with my own hands.”
Di Lang cried in fear, “Release me, please, I beg you, Little Brother Shaoyun.”
“Haha, it’s too late for you to be calling me brother now. I have already killed four of your siblings. I will add you to the count as well,” said Xiang Shaoyun with a sneer.
“You were the one who had killed Luoyang and Chenggong?” Di Lang exclaimed in shock.
“That’s right. You may go to the afterlife now,” said Xiang Shaoyun before plucking Di Lang’s head from his body.
Carrying the head, he ignored the Soul Foundation Realm expert still struggling and left the Nether Soul Domain. As far as he was concerned, the wind cultivator was already dead. He wasn’t wrong. That expert was under the a.s.sault of five ghostrunes and was shackled by Xiang Shaoyun’s chains. It was almost impossible for him to survive the two-p.r.o.nged a.s.sault.
At this time, the fierce battle had already erupted between the two sides. The Di Sect had more people, and they looked like they had the upper hand, but Xiang Shaoyun’s people were holding up very well with their superior individual strength. However, it was still not clear which side would be the ultimate victor.
When Xiang Shaoyun reappeared from his Nether Soul Domain, he lifted Di Lang’s head and shouted, “Di Lang has been beheaded. What are you still fighting for?”
His voice reverberated everywhere, and all the Di Sect members heard him. When they saw the head in his hand, they became fl.u.s.tered. As for Xiang Shaoyun’s people, their morale surged, and they fought even more fiercely.
The turtle, the toad, the five villains, and the thirteen eagles were all incredible experts. No ordinary person could withstand their might.
Devouring Ghost was even scarier than them. After receiving the saint soul fruit from Xiang Shaoyun, he had reached the late-stage Soul Foundation Realm. With the help of his blood demon, he was extremely ferocious in battle, planting fear in all who faced him.
The blood demon was an extinct species and was known as a race of calamity. They were capable of eliminating numerous races just by existing. It was a race that n.o.body wanted to get involved with.
They couldn’t be killed or destroyed, and they could penetrate all defenses. Blood was the only thing they required to endlessly create clones. This was a horrifying race.
Controlling the blood demon, Devouring Ghost spread destruction in all directions. He constantly devoured blood to enhance the strength of the blood demon, scaring all Di Sect members who faced him into retreat.
As for Little White, he led the Demon Sovereigns he brought and fought on the battlefield, displaying the remarkable offensive prowess of the demonic beasts, something no humans could ever hope to compare with.
Tuoba Wan’er was also showcasing her extraordinary strength for the very first time. She was a fourth-stage Soul Foundation Realm cultivator with the strength to match even sixth-stage Soul Foundation Realm cultivators.
As for Ye Chaomu, she was just as strong as Xiang Shaoyun. She could fight those many stages above her, and her pair of eyes was simply a reaper of lives. Anyone who met her eye attacks would be instantly killed.
All in all, the Di Sect had the numbers and looked impressive, but all their members were pretty much useless. Xiang Shaoyun’s side had fewer people, but every person was an incredible combatant who couldn’t be stopped on the battlefield. Xiang Shaoyun appearing with Di Lang’s head in hand was the final straw that broke the Di Sect’s morale.
“The first young master is dead! We need to retreat!”
“If the sect master continues to hide, we will be completely helpless. Retreat into the sect and face the enemy with the grand formation!”
“They are too powerful. We have no way of stopping them. If this continues, all of us will die!”
“Retreat, retreat! We need backup!”
And thus, the Di Sect army retreated. Xiang Shaoyun’s people naturally wouldn’t let go of this opportunity to kill the retreating enemies. They pursued them madly. However, a new army swiftly came out from the sect and blocked their advance. This new group was the sect’s main army led by Di Batian’s fourth son, Di Nuo, and his sixth son, Di Youguang.
As for the second son, he was currently outside the sect. The seventh son, Di Tong, was still cultivating at the Dragon Phoenix Academy. The eighth son, Di Shang, and the ninth son, Di Lin, had long been killed by Xiang Shaoyun. In other words, of Di Batian’s nine sons, five of them had perished in Xiang Shaoyun’s hands.
“Activate the grand formation and eliminate them all,” commanded Di Nuo.
The people in charge of the formation immediately activated the grand formation on the main peak. The sect was instantly enveloped by a powerful energy barrier.
“No formation will be able to protect you today,” declared Xiang Shaoyun with a ruthless look in his eyes.
