Lord Xue Ying - Chapter 1314: Battling against a Grand Perfection God Emperor!
Iron Dragon City Master felt both alarmed and very much indignant. He had never thought that his already Late Stage God Emperor eldest son, ‘Iron Dragon Cloud Mountain’, would seek his help in his own residence, only to be captured by the enemy within such a short period.
‘Furthermore, I did not sense any disturbances from a battle happening. It seems that everything has ended before they began fighting?’ Iron Dragon City Master did not dare believe it. He was originally in the residence. If a battle truly broke out, how could it be hidden from him?
“Iron Dragon City Master.” Xue Ying said.
“Who are you?” Iron Dragon City Master coldly demanded, “What exactly are you scheming against my son for?”
From how Iron Dragon City Master saw it, this must be a plot. Only then could the other party take down his Late Stage God Emperor son silently! And it seemed that the real target was him, Iron Dragon City Master, instead.
“Say! What do you want? Tell me everything.” Iron Dragon City Master coldly stated, “I warn you not to harm my son. Otherwise, I’ll absolutely not let you off.”
Xue Ying shook his head: “Iron Dragon City Master, I truly did not scheme against you son, and neither did I scheme against you! Everything is a consequence of what your son did.”
“Hmph.” Iron Dragon City Master coldly laughed, “Don’t say these. What do you want before you could let my son go?”
“Let him go? That’s fine too. Treasures worth 100,000 Chaotic Origin Crystal Jades.” Xue Ying stated the condition, “If you bring out this much treasures, I’ll let him off.”
This Crown Prince of Iron Dragon Hall had previously tried to snatch his treasures. Nonetheless, he did not harbor any thoughts of killing Xue Ying. Since that’s the case, Xue Ying naturally was willing to spare the life of this Crown Prince! It’s just that… even though he had taken all the treasures with the Crown Prince, this little treasures might perhaps make the heart of the Crown Prince ache but to ‘Iron Dragon City Master’, it was only a small part of what Iron Dragon City Master had!
Hence, Xue Ying planned on making the lot of them feel true heart ache!
“Treasures worth 100,000 Chaotic Origin Crystal Jades?” Iron Dragon City Master was slightly startled. Even though he felt his heart ache, he was shocked at how ‘low’ the demand of the other party was! He thought the other party might want some harsh demand like for instance, asking him, Iron Dragon City Master, to do certain tasks.
“Can you assure that you will let my son off after I give you the treasures?” Iron Dragon City Master growed.
“You do not have the choice.” Xue Ying answered.
Iron Dragon City Master gritted his teeth. Regardless, he still waved his hand and threw a storage wristband to Xue Ying. When Xue Ying received it, he extended his senses over and could not help but feel startled. Indeed, this was an expert ranked seventh on the God Emperor Ranking List. He had accumulated a lot of treasures. But most likely after adding what the Crown Prince had and these treasures worth 100,000 Chaotic Origin Crystal Jades… even Iron Dragon City Master would feel his bones hurting.
“Here you go.” Xue Ying casually threw over Iron Dragon Cloud Mountain.
When Iron Dragon City Master took over his son, his son began gradually waking up. Only then did Iron Dragon City Master heave a sigh of relief. He immediately kept his son into his Eden Treasure.
Only after that did Iron Dragon City Master turn to Xue Ying. His killing intent became more concentrated. He even had a strand of sneer by the edge of his mouth: “You are indeed daring. I thought you would release my son after escaping out of the city. Who would have thought that you would pass my son back directly within my Iron Dragon Hall? It seems you are quite confident of yourself.”
“That’s right. After my cultivation strength increased, I haven’t had the chance to fight with a Grand Perfection God Emperor.” Xue Ying chuckled, “Since I have an opportunity now, I would of course like to battle with Iron Dragon City Master.”
“Oh? Hahaha…” Hearing that, Iron Dragon City Master began guffawing. His voice caused the entire void to tremble just like thunder, “You dare to fight with me? Then I shall see how strong you are.”
The entire Iron Dragon Hall abruptly began surging like a gathering storm.
Many arrays began activating.
Countless lightning started swimming around the place, isolating the whole area. It was clear that Iron Dragon City Master did not wish to let the shockwave from the battle affect other parts of his residence.
“Come.” Iron Dragon City Master looked at Xue Ying. He felt disdain from using the arrays of the residence to suppress Xue Ying. At the same time, the body of Iron Dragon City Master started transforming. His robe disappeared, leaving behind black scales that covered his body. Scales started appearing on his face too, and two twisted horned began protruding out of his forehead. By his backbone, a six to seven meters long scaled tail emerged.
Both legs of Iron Dragon City Master started becoming thicker with the joints reversed.
Both his hands became sharp claws.
At this moment, Iron Dragon City Master was like a standing Dragon Beast! The scales on his body were covered in layers of energy––the inner layer consisted of colorless energy, with a blood-colored energy covering on the middle layer and an outer layer that produced screeching sounds. It constantly destroyed the surrounding void as the void naturally recovered as well. At this moment, the full-blown aura of Iron Dragon City Master had erupted, causing the surrounding world to tremble.
“It is rare even for Half-Chaotic Origin Lifeform’s body to be as strong as yours, Iron Dragon City Master.” Xue Ying praised, “You deserve your reputation as the second strongest combatant in the Divine Realm.”
In terms of overall strength, Iron Dragon City Master was ranked seventh. But in terms of direct combat, he was ranked second, second only to Cloud Phoenix City Master.
“Don’t you want to spar with me? You even said that you have some successes in your cultivation and plan on fighting with me? But you know, choosing me is the most foolish decision you will ever make.” The moment Iron Dragon City Master finished speaking, even though he remained standing there, his tail had abruptly hurled out!
At the same time, this tail rapidly elongated.
This tyrannical energy suppressed the surrounding void, causing cracks to appear on those layers and reveal the golden lightning outside the membrane of this world!
This scaly tail had elongated and lashed out at Xue Ying. It was simply too wild and powerful, so much that Xue Ying was alarmed.
With a thought, a terrifying illusory realm had descended upon Iron Dragon City Master.
Iron Dragon City Master only felt an enormous world hauling his soul forcefully. Since he could cultivate to where he stood, his soul and willpower was naturally extraordinary, allowing him to resist against the force. At the same time, this enormous world was also pounding out at his soul, causing him to feel waves of pain. It felt as if a blade was hacking on his soul. This feeling was incredibly unpleasant. He had to spend an absolute majority of his heart force to resist this soul attack, preventing him from using his full strength in dealing against that mysterious expert.
The original tail lash that was filled with power suddenly became much weaker. The technique was no longer as expertly executed as before.
Xue Ying waved his right hand, causing many layers of space to appear before the tail lash. These layers easily resisted against that much cruder greatly weakened tail lash.
‘The Mirage and Illusory Realm third killing technique is amazing. Even the Late Stage God Emperor Crown Prince could barely maintain consciousness momentarily before he falling into it.’ Xue Ying thought.
Grand Emperors were one major level in itself.
The soul and willpower between God Emperors did not have too much of a difference. Back at Realm Heart Great Land, Xue Ying had used his Mirage and Illusory Realm killing technique to deal against Middle Stage God Emperors (God Generals), and now, his Third Dao of Mirage and Illusory Realm killing technique had a qualitative difference. It became much stronger. Most Late Stage God Emperors would fall for it easily!
As for ‘Grand Perfection God Emperors’, from Xue Ying’s observation according to Iron Dragon City Master’s executed technique, his strength should have diminished by 70% – 80%.
‘What is this technique, this…’
Iron Dragon City Master felt alarmed and uneasy.
This was too unpleasant.
With his soul being tugged on by an enormous and vast world, he knew that the moment he fell into this world, he would be doomed. He had to use his entire strength to resist against it! And the remaining heart force would then be used to deal against the enemy. His control of his fleshy body had weakened too. His soul could not even control this powerful fleshy body of his perfectly, much less his executed techniques.
“Peng.” That white-robed male did not unsheathe his sword. Instead, that man slapped down on his claws.
This slap actually forced Iron Dragon City Master back a few steps with waves of energy tunneling into his body.
‘I have to augment my strength using the arrays.’ Iron Dragon City Master could no longer cared. Given his identity as a seventh ranker on the God Emperor Ranking List, previously, he felt disdain from controlling the array because ordinary arrays could not increase his strength greatly at his level. Even when he was in his territory, this array could not help him much. But at this moment, he couldn’t care less. Anything that could help him is something he would immediately use.
“Hong long long~” The arrays became activated. Some enveloped the body of Iron Dragon City Master, and some began suppressing on Xue Ying: ‘Not good, I can no longer control the arrays perfectly.’
An absolute majority of his heart force was spent on resisting the pull of that frightening illusory realm.
And the remaining heart force had to control his fleshy body in battling against the other party while controlling the array at the same time. The arrays of the Iron Dragon Hall were incredibly complex, yet now that his heart force was weakened, he could only control part of the arrays.
‘Where exactly did this expert appear? How did my son meet him?’ At this moment, Iron Dragon City Master felt anxious. He had never thought that he would actually fall into such predicament within his own residence.
