Chapter 572 – Bridge of Death
In the limitless ocean, both Zhao Feng and the skeletal Division Leader were in desperation. Lord Hu Suo’s power seemed able to s.h.i.+ft Heaven and Earth around.
“Zhao Feng! Save me!”
The skeletal Division Leader was about to crumble in front of Lord Hu Suo’s might as it roared toward Zhao Feng. Its last bit of hope was with him.
“Who can save you? That brat can’t even save himself.”
Lord Hu Suo mocked as he froze the skeletal Division Leader in midair.
In reality, Zhao Feng’s situation wasn’t much better. If it weren’t for the fact that they wanted to capture Zhao Feng alive, the attacks of the two Sovereigns wouldn’t be so weak.
“Hmm? This brat’s hair and eye color…”
The black-armored giant was surprised. The hair and the left eye of the youth in front of him started to turn blue.
The Blue Lightning Pirate smiled playfully and didn’t put it to heart.
At the moment, Zhao Feng had already lost the protection of the Ghost Corpse Cursed Array; he was no longer a threat to the two late-stage Small Origin Core Realms.
“I’ll kill you first.”
A shocking wave of energy flashed through Zhao Feng’s left eye, and a purple aura flashed across his eye.
His left eye had locked on to the Blue Lightning Pirate.
“Void s.p.a.ce Eye Slas.h.!.+”
A stealthy ripple of eye-bloodline power extended across the Blue Lightning Pirate’s body, and a whirlpool seemed to appear in the middle of this power.
A sharp blade instantly sliced through the Blue Lightning Pirate’s heart.
Blood splattered, and then the blade continued to destroy the remaining lifeforce within the Blue Lightning Pirate’s body.
The Blue Lightning Pirate’s body stopped moving, and puzzlement and fear appeared in his eyes.
His blood-stained body fell from the air and into the ocean. As he died, the smile of victory was still frozen on his face.
The black-armored giant howled, but at the same time, his eyes were full of wariness, anger, and some type of fear of the unknown as he looked at Zhao Feng. How did the Blue Lightning Pirate die? He didn’t even know.
All the black-armored giant saw was that Zhao Feng just looked at the Blue Lightning Pirate – a cultivator at the late-stage Small Origin Core Realm – and he was killed by a blade that appeared out of thin air.
“What’s going on?”
Lord Hu Suo paused just as he had forced the skeletal Division Leader into a dead corner. Seeing the Blue Lightning Pirate’s death, his heart jumped.
“Brat, what kind of secret technique did you use to kill Number Seven?”
The black-armored giant was overrun by fear and hatred as he swung his black axe wildly at Zhao Feng.
“Void s.p.a.ce Eye Slas.h.!.+”
Zhao Feng’s expression was cold.
A blade slashed through the black-armored giant’s body.
The black-armored giant struggled, and his eyes were full of fear and questioning.
“My armor is a piece of an Earth-Grade weapon and can block the attacks of normal Sovereigns head-on….”
The black-armored giant’s mind was full of chaos before he died.
He still didn’t realize that Zhao Feng’s strongest attack, the Void s.p.a.ce Eye Slash, used the Laws of s.p.a.ce to appear directly inside the opponent’s body. No matter how strong one’s defense was on the outside, it was completely useless; the heart was an essential organ, and it couldn’t block the aura of Destruction.
The lifeforce within the black-armored giant’s body was destroyed, and he quickly followed the Blue Lightning Pirate’s footsteps.
In the blink of an eye, two Sovereigns had been instantly killed.
Lord Hu Suo took in a cold breath. Even he didn’t have the ability to kill two late-stage Small Origin Core Realms instantly.
At this moment, Lord Hu Suo’s face was covered with worry as he released the pressure on the skeletal Division Leader.
Within the s.h.i.+p, Loulan Zhishui and company had open mouths. They couldn’t even believe what was happening. In the blink of an eye, Zhao Feng had slain two Sovereigns.
“What kind of eye-bloodline is that…?”
Loulan Zhishui couldn’t suppress the shock in her heart, but she soon revealed a smile. She finally realized why the skeletal Division Leader was Zhao Feng’s slave.
How could someone with a bounty from all three sects be simple…?
A thought flashed through Lord Hu Suo’s mind before he suddenly felt a dangerous sensation.
“Void s.p.a.ce Eye Slas.h.!.+”
Zhao Feng’s strongest eye-bloodline attack was used once more.
Lord Hu Suo’s powerful senses felt a disturbance in s.p.a.ce.
The Spatial Movement technique didn’t utilize the Laws of s.p.a.ce proper, it relied more on the abilities of the G.o.d’s Spiritual Eye. Therefore, the movement in s.p.a.ce was stealthier than usual.
However, at the end of the day, Lord Hu Suo was still a Great Origin Core Realm expert; he left an afterimage behind as he dodged.
Blood splattered; Lord Hu Suo wasn’t able to completely dodge the attack. He wasn’t like Grandmaster Yin Kong who specialized in the Laws of s.p.a.ce.
Lord Hu Suo roared as a small b.l.o.o.d.y hole appeared in his chest.
Lord Hu Suo’s face was pale-white. His heart was sc.r.a.ped by the Void s.p.a.ce Eye Slash, and the aura of Destruction was very intense.
Luckily, he reacted in time and used True Force to protect his heart. However, the Void s.p.a.ce Eye Slash was a spatial attack, so it appeared directly from within his heart. Therefore, Lord Hu Suo’s defensive methods only reduced the damage dealt instead of fully blocking it.
“There’s still one more left.”
Zhao Feng gritted his teeth and circulated his remaining eye-bloodline power with insanity. He seemed h.e.l.l-bent on killing Lord Hu Suo, as if he didn’t care about what would happen to himself in the process.
Lord Hu Suo jumped up in fright and forcefully suppressed his injury.
A streak of green-and-blood-colored light flashed across the limitless ocean.
Due to the fact that the resistance in the limitless ocean was extremely weak, one’s flying speed could reach a terrifying velocity.
“He ran away?”
“Hahaha…! Even the great Lord Hu Suo had to run away!”
The people within the s.h.i.+p broke out into chaos, and Loulan Zhishui’s eyes started tearing up. She didn’t know how to describe her happiness.
“Captain, if you had attacked once more and killed Lord Hu Suo, your name would become known across the limitless ocean.”
“Even just severely injuring Lord Hu Suo will make his name known.”
Everyone discussed with admiration.
Above the ocean:
Zhao Feng let out a long breath as cold sweat appeared on his forehead.
In reality, even if he managed to use the fourth Void s.p.a.ce Eye Slash, it would have probably been hazardous for his well-being. Therefore, Zhao Feng only pretended that he would do everything in order to win. Zhao Feng knew that, if Lord Hu Suo didn’t heal his injuries in time, he would lose his life, which meant he wouldn’t want to clash with Zhao Feng head-on.
Zhao Feng’s guess was correct. Lord Hu Suo didn’t want to play with his own life, and he needed to heal himself.
“Skeletal Division Leader.”
Zhao Feng put the Ghost Corpse Cursed Array away, and he put the skeletal Division Leader into the Ten Thousand Ghost Pearl.
Within the Ten Thousand Ghost Pearl, the skeletal Division Leader’s body was cracked, and some places were broken.
Fortunately, it was back inside the Ten Thousand Ghost Pearl, allowing its cultivation and recovery speed to surpa.s.s that of the outside world.
Zhao Feng jumped onto the Blue Lightning Sea Sky s.h.i.+p.
The s.h.i.+p once again dove into the depths of the ocean and headed toward the Thousand Flowing Islands.
Within the captain’s cabin, Zhao Feng sat down and focused on recovering. At the same time, he inspected the sixty cursed ghost-corpses. They were slightly damaged, so they would need some time to recover.
It was fortunate that the Ten Thousand Ghost Pearl helped Yin- and Death-type existences. Even if they didn’t want to, anything within the Ten Thousand Ghost Pearl would become stronger.
“The Ghost Corpse Cursed Array turns all the cursed ghost-corpses into one ent.i.ty, and every corpse takes on the same amount of pressure.”
Zhao Feng realized that even the most severely injured had only lost arms or legs, which wasn’t hard to repair.
In the limitless ocean, the Blue Lightning Sea Sky s.h.i.+p’s speed had reached its limit as it continued to pull further away from the Eight Desolate Mountain.
Zhao Feng’s left eye had become black again.
“We’ve finally escaped danger, but…”
Zhao Feng knew that the threat from the three sects was becoming smaller and smaller, but at the same time, a surge of uneasiness came from the bottom of his heart.
The aura of Death was surging once again. The moment he used the Void s.p.a.ce Eye Slash, the aura of Death was several times stronger than before.
“Zhao Feng, it’s best if you don’t use your eye-bloodline. Every time you do, it will strengthen the connection between you and the Emperor of Death.”
The Purple Saint Partial Spirit’s warning resounded through his mind.
Thinking up to there, Zhao Feng sighed. He didn’t want to use his G.o.d’s Spiritual Eye if he didn’t need to.
In a far, far away place in the limitless ocean.
“The ninth G.o.d’s Eye… you’ve finally appeared?”
A mysterious voice sounded across the soul dimension, and it represented the will of death.
“Bridge… of… Death!”
A shocking intent of Death burned across the Heaven and Earth as it pa.s.sed through the limitless ocean.
In that instant, everything within ten thousand miles fell into darkness.
Only a couple powerful beings could sense this disturbance.
Within the darkness, a black bird screeched before an ancient palace of death:
“The Emperor of Death sends for the Four Death Spirit Lords and the thirty-six Death Guards.”
