Immortal Path to Heaven - Chapter 655
Withdrew the spear, removed the claws!
Ou Yangming and Big Yellow let go at the same time almost at the instant they confirmed that the high-rank spirit lizard was dead.
Their consciousnesses had almost connected such that they were one. Inside Ou Yangming’s spiritual world, he even fed back every situation on the outside to himself.
The high-rank spirit lizard’s flame of life was initially burning like a pillar of fire, but it completely disappeared at this moment.
Although the Insects were extremely unyielding and were known as the most tenacious beings, after being attacked by Ou Yangming, Big Yellow, and the lazy turtle, the lizard died in a split second.
The effect of their first joint attack turned out to be spectacular, which was out of their expectations.
Nonetheless, it was not time for them to celebrate yet because another similarly powerful high-rank spirit east was still inside the Illusion Formation.
Therefore, even though Ou Yangming and Big Yellow were overwhelmed with indescribable pleasure after devouring the lizard, they refrained from absorbing energies from its flesh and blood once it was dead. Instead, they targeted the other high-rank spirit lizard.
The big lazy turtle widened its mouth to bite the lizard. It tried its best to remain stable, but the power of the high-rank spirit beast was enormous, hence the inside of its body trembled when they resisted each other.
It was an incredibly subtle tremble, which would normally be difficult to notice.
Having said that, the physically strong high-rank lizard that previously entered the Illusion Formation turned around indeed and stared at the mountain rock in front of it with wildfire-like eyes.
It was worthy of being a real insect powerhouse because it vaguely sensed the movement inside the mountain rock at this moment.
Despite the sinister look in the lizard’s eye, it dared not act rashly because it was in an illusion, which might have given it that feeling.
During the moment of delay, the lizard suddenly felt very uneasy as the atmosphere around it became oppressive without warning.
The Illusion Formation was refined by Ou Yangming through hard work, where he perfectly imprinted his spiritual world on the formation boards. Thus, as long as he was inside the formation, and the absolute strength did not exceed his strength too much, he was the ruler.
Needless to say, every spirit beast was strong-willed. As for spineless fellows, they would have been eliminated long ago and would not become spirit beasts. This was the reason Ou Yangming could not really lure the spirit beasts’ minds or control their actions though he could affect them.
Nevertheless, the young fellow could hide or create things inside the Illusion Formation if he wanted to.
As at this moment, when Ou Yangming and his comrades killed the first high-rank lizard, it let out a deafening shriek and released a unique aura to warn its partners, but the warnings were ineffective inside the formation.
Whether it was its sound or its aura, they were confined to a small area, and there was no chance of them being spread at all.
Even so, being a high-rank spirit beast, while the other lizard did not sense its partner’s warning, it sensed danger due to its instinctive alertness.
The lizard swung its large tail and suddenly extended its sharp claws to scratch the mountain rock in front of it hard.
Following an ear-shattering sound, the mountain rock remained the same, whereas the high-rank lizard’s claws hurt.
In the Spiritual Realm, throughout countless years of natural selection, numerous races had been eliminated because they could not adapt to changes in the environment. That said, various races evolved into special forms to survive.
The Turtles were not fast, and they were ridiculed by many races. Yet, it was undeniable that any race would be envious if they faced a turtle’s thick shell.
It was worth noting that a turtle’s shell was exceptionally tough and solid. Equal-ranked powerhouses would not be able to break it, but even powerhouses in a higher rank might not be able to crack it.
The high-rank lizard’s claws were toughened, by which ordinary mountain rocks would have crumbled if they were knocked by them. Who knew, it was wishful thinking for the lizard to leave even a slight mark on the shell with its claws.
It took several steps back with a fierce look in its eyes.
At this point, while it did not know what exactly the mountain rock was, it knew it was not an ordinary rock.
The big lazy turtle stretched its neck and said to Ou Yangming, “Oh no, it found out.”
Ou Yangming smiled coldly and responded, “It’s too late for it to find out now. Kill it!”
In a flash, he and Big Yellow pounced on the high-rank spirit beast.
If the 2 high-rank spirit beasts were together, Ou Yangming and his companions might not have the guts to ambush them at the same time.
Those were high-rank spirit beasts, after all, and the effect of 1 plus 1 would definitely be bigger than 2.
However, Ou Yangming and his comrades killed one of the high-rank spirit lizards rather easily by surprise, thus they were highly-spirited like never before.
Since they could kill the first lizard, why could they not kill the second one too? Ou Yangming and Big Yellow had actually sentenced that lizard to death.
A stream of light was seen as the young fellow and the big yellow dog incited their White Silver Powers concurrently and lunged at the ferocious high-rank lizard.
The Illusion Formation had a wonderful effect of hiding their figures. In fact, they could even hide their killing intents before the lizard found them.
In spite of that, the formation also had a limit, or Ou Yangming was not capable enough, so he could not control the formation enough to hide everything from high-rank spirit beasts. As such, the big fellow noticed them once they were within 10 meters from it.
The lizard’s enormous tail whipped like a long whip, causing a lash to be heard in the air.
Ou Yangming cursed internally, ‘These lizards’ tails are so annoying.’
He had the most formidable divine weapon and skill, so he was confident about breaking the lizard’s defense, but he dared not go head-on against the thunderous whip.
The young fellow stopped and pinned his feet to the ground.
A yellow figure flashed beside him as Big Yellow faced the attack without fear. It was its second time facing a whip attack from a lizard’s tail, so it knew very well how forceful it would be. The big yellow dog was fully protected and had activated its White Silver Power, but it could only manage to match the lizard.
The lizard withdrew its tail, but Big Yellow was lashed away.
Ou Yangming’s face changed. The exchange of blows only lasted for a second, but he could sense that this lizard’s power was a whole lot higher than that of its high-rank comrade.
They were both high-rank spirit beasts, but there was a huge disparity between their cultivation bases and combat powers.
Now, it seemed like Ou Yangming and his companions had encountered an outstanding member of the Twelve Walkers.
No matter what, Ou Yangming could not give up at this stage. He grunted and kept shaking his spear to release peculiar energies one after another.
Skill Runes were Ou Yangming’s biggest trump card. He unleashed his mental power to its maximum and released plenty of Rune Spells in a short period. Consequently, the spells poured down on the high-rank spirit lizard like a stormy rain.
Nonetheless, the lizard did not panic at all. Whether it was when it fell into the Illusion Formation trap, failed to attack the mountain rock, or being attacked by spells, it was always as calm as ice and was not agitated at all.
It looked with its ice-cold eyes in Ou Yangming’s direction, then it moved its body and adopted various dexterous means to disintegrate the spells one by one. It looked like the process was a breeze for it.
The lazy turtle raised its head high and narrowed its eyes.
A yellow figure slowly went behind the lizard as Big Yellow was also waiting quietly without attacking rashly.
After withstanding the spell attacks for a long time, the lizard finally opened its mouth and screamed weirdly. Subsequently, it flashed and lunged at Ou Yangming, who was in front of it.
It was being confused by the Illusion Formation, but it still found the right direction at once.
Ou Yangming was frightened. He flew backward to evade the lizard but in terms of speed, how could he be compared with a high-rank spirit beast?
The lizard had a cruel and hideous look in its eyes. It swung its large claws ruthlessly at the human in front of it.
Nevertheless, the lizard found it odd because the human seemed to be overly light; he rolled backward and disappeared in a blink of an eye.
The lizard quickly uttered in its mind because it did not hit a person, but a spear.
It turned out that the young human employed a trick, where he used a spear as his disguise, and the lizard was foolishly tricked.
2 strange sounds of the wind were almost heard at the same time beside the lizard. With a determined look in its eyes, fearsome black stripes surfaced on its body.
Following that, its body began to twist unusually.
It was an indescribably bizarre movement, but the lizard somehow escaped from the lazy turtle and the big yellow dog easily because of it.
Forget about Big Yellow; it activated its White Silver Power, but its boundary was inferior to that of the lizard. However, the case was different for the lazy turtle because it was supported by many spiritual flowers and herbs, which were enough to make it a top-notch high-rank spirit beast.
Even so, the lizard dodged the turtle’s attack without effort.
The big lazy turtle looked up and was appalled.
It suddenly realized that it could not find the equal-ranked spirit beast’s weaknesses at all, and the lizard’s every move seemed to coincide with the natural law around them. If the lazy turtle forces an attack, it would only fail to achieve anything and might even be killed.
The lazy turtle recalled something when it stared at the queer black patterns on the lizard. It shouted fiercely, “Be careful, it’s a Venerable One’s consciousness!”
