Immortal And Martial Dual Cultivation Chapter 1215
Xiao Chen’s action of brandishing his saber and roaring in rage appeared desolate and tyrannical against the backdrop of this electric light. If these people who stood up and made a move were likened to a pack of wolves, then Xiao Chen was the king of beasts, a tyrant that naturally inspired dread in others.
When the tyrant raged, who dared to move?!
The many quasi-Emperors blinded by their desires were all forced back with the roar of this thunder.
This furious roar even startled those of the ten outstanding talents, deterring them from any rash actions and distracting them.
There were those who were cowardly and irresolute. When this furious roar resounded, they fell out of the sky, and their legs went numb; they immediately collapsed, frightened into trembling as they backed away continuously.
Who dared to move? No one did!
Xiao Chen’s furious roar startled hundreds of quasi-Emperors into retreat. Being able to create such an effect naturally had something to do with him infusing the peak will of thunder into his voice.
A peak will that was already very close to materializing as a physical object could impose tremendous pressure on the mind—particularly when combined with a shout.
This was especially so for the will of thunder. The lightning attribute possessed a berserk nature. It was also what the Heavenly Dao used as punishment. Hence, its effect was even more incredible.
When the lightning vanished, Xiao Chen eyed the group of people around coldly before pushing off the ground and flying towards the snake’s head in the air.
A somewhat beautiful pure-white flower bloomed on the snake’s head. In this dark world filled with Death Qi, its vital appearance was very eye-catching. This was the Flower of Life that Xiao Chen sought, even in his dreams.
On the other side, Dugu Ao and the others had taken advantage of the time Xiao Chen had the many quasi-Emperors stunned to obtain the mutated Demonic Essence Core.
They now just waited for Xiao Chen to pluck the Flower of Life. After that, they would have accomplished all their goals in the Human-Demon Paradise.
Wounds covered Ao Jiao’s body, honors from the fight with the mutated Flying Dragon Snake. At this moment, she did not feel any pain. As she watched Xiao Chen slowly approach the snake head, she felt only joy in her heart.
The matter of having to advance to Martial Emperor within five years had always been a great burden on Xiao Chen. Now, they finally saw some hope.
After being filled with anticipation for so long, how could she not feel happy when Xiao Chen was about to get what he wanted?
As the quasi-Emperors that Xiao Chen frightened away watched him fly towards the snake head, none of them dared to act rashly. His earlier shout had broken their momentum, erasing all thought of contending against him.
Ten thousand lightning bolts turning the world black and white amid the bloody rain—these quasi-Emperors would never forget that scene for the rest of their long lives, becoming a shadow that was difficult to remove.
Just when everyone thought that no one could stop Xiao Chen from obtaining the Flower of Life, two ghostly figures appeared in space. These two ghostly figures hid in the Death Qi in space, looking like they appeared out of nowhere.
They both sent out a palm strike each at Xiao Chen at the same time, driving nearly all the Death Qi in the entire Death Swamp and causing the world to shake continuously.
Two gigantic black palms like demonic claws clasped towards Xiao Chen.
As long as Xiao Chen continued to go for the Flower of Life, these two palms would strike him. He would not have any chance to dodge them.
Clearly, these two Ghost Race half-step Martial Emperors did this to force back Xiao Chen, to prevent him from obtaining the Flower of LIfe.
If Xiao Chen dared to continue, he would have to face the power of these two palm strikes head-on.
Furthermore, these demonic claws looked nearly solid. Everywhere they passed, tears appeared in space—which clearly demonstrated how mighty these palm strikes were.
“Ghost Race half-step Martial Emperors!”
The new arrivals stunned all the Demon mixed-blood quasi-Emperors and the ten outstanding talents at the same time. They could not understand what was happening. Why did Ghost Race experts from the Kunlun Continent travel such a long way to the Human-Demon Paradise?
Such a situation had never happened in the history of the Human-Demon Sea. Furthermore, two of them appeared at the same time.
However, that was not all. Two ancient coffins flew out of the Death Swamp’s ground at the same time. Then, the coffin lids fell to the ground with a ‘pa’ sound. Finally, two Corpse Race half-step Martial Emperors with cold expressions opened their eyes at the same time.
Without saying a word, these two Corpse Race half-step Martial Emperors stepped out of the coffins and started attacking the surrounding Demon mixed-blood cultivators. Given the absolute difference in strength, several Demon mixed-blood quasi-Emperors died before they even figured out what was going on.
A sagely song rang out, and two beams of golden light poured down from the sky. The divine light illuminated the dark Death Swamp.
Two Deity Race half-step Martial Emperors with white hair and black eyes descended from above. They formed hand seals and shot out divine light.
The Deity Race half-step Martial Emperors used their Mental Energy Martial Techniques to release resplendent light endlessly towards the ground, causing many miserable shrieks to ring out.
The attacks sent all the Demon mixed-blood quasi-Emperors below fleeing; they did not dare to stay for long.
Six human half-step Martial Emperors appeared in the distance, at the edge of Death Swamp. These six people all wore masks, preventing others from seeing their faces.
However, their strong auras were all horrifyingly. With one look, one could tell that they were not ordinary half-step Martial Emperors. They arrived at the scene within two steps.
The human cultivators likewise started to attack and kill the surrounding Demon mixed-blood cultivators.
Pei Yan and the others changed their expression considerably. No matter how this group of outstanding talents thought, they would never have imagined that so many foreign half-step Martial Emperors would appear in the Human-Demon Paradise.
Furthermore, none of these people were ordinary half-step Martial Emperors. They were all peak existences among half-step Martial Emperors.
These Demon mixed-blood cultivators were special. They were mixed-bloods of the human race and the Deep Abyss Demonic World’s Demon Races. Furthermore, the Demon Races had always been the common enemy of all the Kunlun Realm races.
If not for a Demon mixed-blood cultivator, the Blood Sword Sovereign, appearing fifty thousand years ago and reaching an agreement with the five major races of the Kunlun Continent, the Demon mixed-bloods would have been exterminated.
Even so, the Kunlun Realm was still controlled by the five major races. Furthermore, the peak experts of these five major races had no qualms about killing Demon mixed-blood cultivators.
The experts of the five major races did not fear the Demon mixed-blood experts coming to seek trouble, either. If Demon mixed-blood experts did come to seek trouble, they were basically sinners for having Demon bloodlines.
In regard to peak strength, any Prime of the various major races could kill off all the Demon mixed-bloods.
“Let’s go. These people are trying to clear the place. They do not wish for others to see what they are doing.”
Pei Yan saw a few Demon mixed-blood cultivators running, whom the various half-step Martial Emperors ignored. With a quick thought, he guessed what was happening.
Then, he glanced at the two Ghost Race half-step Martial Emperors in the air delaying Xiao Chen. As he retreated, he somewhat figured out what was going on.
These people were targeting that white-robed bladesman in the air.
At this thought, Pei Yan could not help the horror filling his face. What kind of existence exactly was this fellow? To think that he had offended so many half-step Martial Emperors!
As Pei Yan pondered, he did not stop moving, fleeing with all his might.
Although Pei Yan could defeat some half-step Martial Emperors, those were ordinary half-step Martial Emperors like Wang Yang or Old Man Feng. If he met true half-step Martial Emperor experts, he would only die.
If Pei Yan and the others did not leave now, they would not be able to later.
Such an unusual change happened in an instant. No matter who it was, even if they wrecked their brains thinking, they would not have imagined such a development.
The moment the two Ghost Race half-step Martial Emperors appeared, Xiao Chen, who was in the air, changed his expression.
Before he arrived, he had felt very restless, knowing that obtaining the Flower of Life would not be easy.
However, when he saw the formation of half-step Martial Emperors, he could not help feeling surprised.
Xiao Chen considered what he had done to merit so many major characters making a move and sending out a dozen half-step Martial Emperors to deal with him.
He figured that they had no purpose other than preventing him from obtaining the Flower of Life, not wanting him to advance to Martial Emperor.
If Xiao Chen gave up here and dodged the two horrifying demonic claws, letting the other party snatch away the Flower of Life, nothing would happen to him.
After the other party destroyed the Flower of Life, they would calmly leave.
To these people, an Azure Emperor’s descendant who could not advance to Martial Emperor would no longer pose any threat. He would only be a meteor, nothing to fear.
However, if Xiao Chen did not give up and still wanted to obtain the Flower of Life, enduring the injuries from these two demonic claws would just be the start of a painful time.
The dozen half-step Martial Emperors would not give Xiao Chen a chance to speak. They would beat him half-dead and use the cruelest method to snatch away the Flower of Life.
No matter how Xiao Chen looked at it, regardless of what choice he made, the result would be the same; he would not be able to obtain the Flower of Life.
However, even though the result was the same, he would choose the latter without hesitation.
The reason was none other than his attitude, the flame in his heart that never extinguished, dreams, hopes, an indomitable faith.
“Azure Dragon Battle Armor, materialize!”
Determination flashed across Xiao Chen’s delicate features as he materialized the Azure Dragon Battle Armor with a flash. Then, he continued flying boldly towards the Flower of Life.
One risked one’s life on the path to Emperor. Even if there were ten thousand tribulations, one could not give up!
After materializing the Azure Dragon Battle Armor, Xiao Chen pushed off the air, plucked the Flower of Life from the mutated Flying Dragon Snake, and placed it in his Universe Ring.
However, right after he finished this series of actions, the two Ghost Race half-step Martial Emperors’ demonic palms came together from two different directions to clap and squish him.
Space shook, moving left and right like the pendulum of a clock. Waves of formless spatial winds swept out into the surroundings.
These waves of spatial winds swept through the entire Death Swamp. The ground exploded and split apart, killing all the Flying Dragon Snakes in the swamp. After this battle, the Flying Dragon Snake would probably go extinct in the Human-Demon Paradise.
Dugu Ao took the initiative to shield Ao Jiao and Mu Xiyan, helping the two block the shock waves.
Before the shock waves were over, a figure wearing azure-colored Battle Armor with draconic motifs fell from the sky like an arrow and landed where Dugu Ao and the others were.
“Pu ci!” After landing, Xiao Chen spat out a mouthful of blood. He clenched his teeth, appearing pale, enduring the tremendous pain from his internal injuries.
Cracks appeared in Xiao Chen’s Battle Armor. However, as his body circulated the Azure Dragon Vital Qi, the cracks on the Battle Armor healed on their own at a visible rate.
After the Azure Dragon Body Nourishing Art reached the third layer, the materialized Azure Dragon Battle Armor already provided Xiao Chen with a defense that was just slightly weaker than that of the Golden Emperor Body.
When facing the peak strikes of these two half-step Martial Emperors borrowing the Death Qi in this place, Xiao Chen still could stand up and retained his combat prowess despite being severely injured.
