Gui Mochou did not rush onto the stage at his master’s command. He knew very well Xiang Shaoyun still had the Nether Soul Domain, and if he acted rashly, he could really die. When Feng Xiaosha saw that Gui Mochou wasn’t moving, he stood still as well. He had decided to follow his senior brother’s lead.
Shadowflash transmitted to Gui Mochou, “Don’t worry about his Nether Soul Domain. He is badly injured right now, so his soul is definitely in a weakened state as well. Take this chance to kill him!”
Hearing that, Gui Mochou clenched his fists and finally decided to make a move.
He took out several puppets and called out to Feng Xiaosha, “Junior brother, let’s go together!”
Their actions created an uproar among the disciples.
“b.a.s.t.a.r.ds, are you not ashamed? You’re really going to take advantage of exhausted combatants?”
“They are Dragon Phoenix Academy disciples. I did not imagine they were actually this shameless. What an embarra.s.sment to the four academies.”
“There’s nothing we can do about it. Looks like some people just don’t want to see Xiang Shaoyun emerge as the champion. What a pity.”
“I really want to stop them, but on second thought, I won’t do it. I don’t even know Xiang Shaoyun, so what happens to him has nothing to do with me.”
“Xiang Shaoyun and Dugu Qiubai were both qualified to be considered absolute Emperors. Even if he is really defeated in such a shameless manner, he is still the champion in all our hearts.”
The many disciples were unhappy to see what Shadowflash was doing, and curses started flying out as indignation welled within them.
“To make a move against our overlord, you need to get through me first,” said Tang Longfei as he charged out.
He wasn’t in good condition. Although he was a sixth-stage Dragon Ascension Realm cultivator, he had clearly still not recovered from the death aura invasion.
Xuan Yuantian also stepped forth and stood beside Tang Longfei.
Money, who had been battling the purple lightning horse earlier, also rushed back. In fact, his battle had ended long ago. Little Overlord had summoned the purple lightning horse back after he had withdrawn from the stage, and Money did not dare to continue attacking with the Little Overlord by the horse’s side.
Naturally, the turtle and the toad also stepped forth. Neither of them wished to see anything bad happen to Xiang Shaoyun.
Gui Mochou and Feng Xiaosha did not fear Tang Longfei and Xuan Yuantian, but with Money, the turtle, and the toad joining in, they no longer dared to act rashly.
“The two of you are demonic beasts. Are you trying to intervene in our compet.i.tion? Get lost!” roared Feng Huosuo as he glared at the turtle and the toad.
His Heaven Battling Realm aura burst out of his body and pressed down on the turtle and the toad, causing their expressions to s.h.i.+ft.
At this time, Xiang Shaoyun’s weak voice rang out, “Move out of the way. Let them come. This is my fight, and I will be the champion. All new challengers will be killed!”
At present, his entire body was dyed red with blood. His flesh and bones had suffered great damage, and his body was in horrible condition. He used a large amount of spring water and many blood devil vines to recover as best as he could.
But with his current condition, he would need some time to make a full recovery. Even so, since some people were trying to s.n.a.t.c.h first place from him, he wouldn’t mind teaching them a lesson they wouldn’t forget.
“Overlord, don’t force yourself,” said Tang Longfei.
“Listen to me. Move aside. Anyone who has yet to fight is free to challenge me,” said Xiang Shaoyun weakly.
Anyone could see that Xiang Shaoyun was barely hanging on. However, a sense of admiration rose within them when they saw his firm conviction. After all, such boldness and conviction were what a cultivator needed. Whatever plight one was in, one should face it fearlessly.
When Tang Longfei and Xuan Yuantian saw how persistent Xiang Shaoyun was, they had no choice but to step away silently. Money knew what Xiang Shaoyun was capable of, so he also retreated.
As for the turtle and the toad, they did not dare to move. With Heaven Battling Realm experts around, they really weren’t anything special.
Gui Mochou and Feng Xiaosha exchanged glances before sending the puppets over instead of personally approaching Xiang Shaoyun.
Xiang Shaoyun raised his head and sneered at the two as he said, “I will make both of you regret challenging me.”
Instead of using the Nether Soul Domain, he released his soul clone. Generally speaking, when one’s body was injured, one’s soul would weaken. But since Xiang Shaoyun had formed a solid soul body, his bodily injuries no longer affected his soul that much. After all, his soul clone was as strong as a seventh-stage Sovereign.
After letting his soul out, he did not bother saying anything and immediately attacked the puppets with the Shark Devourer Saber. Xiang Shaoyun’s soul clone was too powerful. All of Gui Mochou’s puppets were emperor-grade puppets, but they weren’t the clone’s match. In fact, even if there was a sovereign-grade puppet, the puppet still wouldn’t be a match for the clone.
The onlookers exclaimed in alarm when they saw the clone, not understanding what was going on. This was especially true for Feng Xiaosha and Gui Mochou. They were about to approach Xiang Shaoyun, but they were completely dumbstruck when they saw his clone.
Only the Heaven Battling Realm experts up in the air knew what happened. Feng Huosuo cried out in surprise, “Are you two stupid? Run!”
The shock must have been affecting his brain, as the correct choice was to ask them to surrender, not run.
Feng Xiaosha and Gui Mochou panicked as they realized that Xiang Shaoyun still had fearsome trump cards hidden, so they immediately turned and ran.
“Idiots, why are you running? Surrender!” Shadowflash shouted.
Alas, his voice couldn’t travel out, as the wolf guard had blocked his sound waves with some isolation technique.
With a cold snort, the wolf guard said, “Are you trying to interfere in an active fight?”
“That’s right. As elders in charge of overseeing the compet.i.tion, none of us should be impartial,” said the Nine Palace Academy elder.
The other elders also spoke out one after another. They were clearly disgusted with Feng Huosuo’s and Shadowflash’s actions, and it was now time for the two to be taught a lesson. Shadowflash and Feng Huosuo had nothing to say, and they were filled with regret.
How would they have guessed that Xiang Shaoyun had actually formed his soul clone? Inwardly, they cursed, Why did he keep such a powerful trump card hidden? Has this kid been expecting someone to challenge him after the fight? What a hateful b.a.s.t.a.r.d!
Both Gui Mochou and Feng Xiaosha were equipped with Wind Boots, so they were able to move nimbly. Unfortunately, their speed was nothing compared to Xiang Shaoyun’s soul clone, who was as strong as a seventh-stage Sovereign.
Before they could go far, Xiang Shaoyun’s presence surrounded them completely. He raised his saber up high and roared, “Trying to take advantage of my injuries? Dream on! Maybe you can try getting some advantage in h.e.l.l!”
The saber swung, and heads flew.
