Immortal And Martial Dual Cultivation Chapter 1217
A mysterious red-clad man was hiding in the darkness. When he saw this scene, it astounded him. This Demon mixed-blood actually possesses a King Grade bloodline. Furthermore, this mixed-blood even awakened the rarely seen Blood Demon Transformation of the Blood Demons.
Many of the Blood Demons of the Demon Monarch’s lineage only had that strong a bloodline, some not even at that level.
Such a change also stunned the twelve half-step Martial Emperors. Unexpectedly, an unremarkable Demon mixed-blood bastard could erupt with such a shocking aura.
“Bastard! Are you thinking of overthrowing the heavens?!”
The two Deity Race half-step Martial Emperors snorted coldly in the air and attacked together. They both formed hand seals and sent out a Mental Energy Martial Technique each.
The light in the sky formed a divine sword and saber attempting to punish Dugu Ao.
Dugu Ao turned around and glared. His eyes shone with a red light, projecting a frantic bloodthirst. Anyone who saw this would fear.
This glare struck the two Deity Race half-step Martial Emperors with an indescribable panic.
“Overthrowing the heavens? Never thought of it. However, I, Dugu Ao, will not agree to you trying to bully others with your numbers before me today. Mu Xiyan, bring Xiao Chen away!” Dugu Ao said using the last remaining shreds of his rationality.
Then, Dugu Ao waved his hand and pulled over most of the Death Qi in the Human-Demon Paradise.
In his current state, he was like a fish in water in this Human-Demon Paradise replete with dense Death Qi. He could use much more Death Qi than the two Ghost Race half-step Martial Emperors combined.
Dugu Ao threw a palm strike and easily dealt with the attacks of the two Deity Race half-step Martial Emperors.
Reluctance flashed in Mu Xiyan’s eyes together with a heavy conflicted feeling. However, she eventually made up her mind to bring Xiao Chen away.
In the end, she was shocked to discover that even after she used her Eros Demon ability to trap Xiao Chen, she still failed to paralyze him completely.
Xiao Chen was still resisting her secret technique. If she moved, he would immediately regain his freedom. Her face exposed her anxiety despite herself.
“Xiao Chen, just come with me.”
Mu Xiyan felt so anxious that she was about to cry.
Xiao Chen did not move; he could not say anything. However, his consciousness was still clear. In Dugu Ao’s current state, the Demon mixed-blood could indeed block twelve half-step Martial Emperors. However, he would not be able to do so easily.
Once this state was over, only death awaited Dugu Ao.
Xiao Chen could not leave. He could not watch his friend die for him!
The sky changed color; winds and clouds surged. Although the berserk Dugu Ao was in a somewhat sorry state, he could face twelve half-step Martial Emperors, truly blocking all of them.
With the rise of Dugu Ao’s hand, most of the Human-Demon Paradise shook, the entire sky filling with churning black clouds.
The cultivators secretly watching in the distance were all stunned. They had long known that Dugu Ao did not use his Blood Demon innate talents and that he cultivated the human’s Quintessence.
However, they had not imagined that once Dugu Ao used the Blood Demon’s innate talents and went berserk, he would be so ridiculously strong.
Dugu Ao laughed loudly. He ignored the injuries on his body entirely and fought it out with the twelve half-step Martial Emperors. He was like a wild ruffian. If anyone dared to go down, he would fight to the death, raining out attacks without a care.
Dugu Ao happened to glance around and noticed that Xiao Chen still had not left. He could not help crying out hoarsely, “Go! Why are you still standing there?!”
While Dugu Ao was distracted for this one moment, the two Ghost Race half-step Martial Emperors took advantage of the opportunity to strike—one from the front and one from the back. Given this opening, the attacks landed.
When experts exchanged moves, how could they afford to be distracted?
“You are seeking death!”
Dugu Ao roared wildly, and his figure flickered like a phantom, returning two palm strikes and making the two Ghost Race cultivators vomit blood while retreating.
Just as he was about to pursue them, the other half-step Martial Emperors charged over, and the two sides started fighting again.
However, Dugu Ao now had a weight in his heart that held him back. Occasionally, he turned his head back to look. When he saw that Xiao Chen still had not left, he could not help calling out to remind him.
“Go!” Dugu Ao cried out hoarsely.
Every time he cried out, someone would take advantage of his distraction to severely injure him and cause him to vomit blood. That sorry state was a frightening sight. However, he still did not stop, continuing his frantic battle. As long as he found a chance, his shout would resound through the sky.
“Go! Go! Go!”
The word “go” echoed everywhere in the entire Human-Demon Paradise, sounding aggrieved and heart-wrenching. Everyone felt moved at this.
However, could Xiao Chen really leave?
Could he leave?
Of course, Xiao Chen could not. The words “Go! Go! Go!” resounded like thunder, every word containing desperation. How could Xiao Chen leave with any reassurance?
Xiao Chen’s body, which was paralyzed by Mu Xiyan, trembled slightly. His clenched fists shook. Under such a difficult situation, he managed to clench his hands into fists.
Xiao Chen’s eyes looked like they were about to cry blood. Every time Dugu Ao shouted “go” was like a knife stabbing into Xiao Chen’s heart.
Mu Xiyan, who stood behind him, gently bit on her lips. Fragrant sweat covered her forehead. She sensed that she was slowly losing control over Xiao Chen.
This development came as a shock. This secret technique of the Eros Demons was an innate ability. When executed on someone who was not expecting it, even someone as strong as a half-step Martial Emperor would find it hard to struggle free and instead would slowly fall asleep in time.
This was not an offensive Martial Technique, only a particular innate ability of Eros Demons. Mainly, it was meant to put a person to sleep and allow the Eros Demon to extract energy from the other party.
As for the party that was being drained, that person would be in a deep sleep and would not realize that their energy was being stolen.
Naturally, Mu Xiyan was not doing this to extract energy from Xiao Chen. She just wanted to put Xiao Chen to sleep so she could bring him away and not waste Dugu Ao’s efforts.
However, the reality surpassed her expectations. Xiao Chen’s willpower was unexpectedly strong. Not only did he not fall asleep, but he even struggled increasingly harder. It looked like he could struggle free at any moment.
His actions placed even more pressure on Mu Xiyan. If this carried on, he would really struggle free. At that time, it would waste the chance that Dugu Ao fought and risked his life for.
Mu Xiyan cried in anxiety. At that moment, she felt extremely regretful. If she had not gotten Dugu Ao to help her obtain the mutated Demonic Essence Core, none of this would have happened.
The mysterious red-clad person hidden in the darkness calmly analyzed this highly tense situation and gave up on this opportunity to make his move.
The battle in the sky slowly tilted in favor of the twelve half-step Martial Emperors. In the end, fighting one against twelve was pushing it. If not for the Demonic Qi and Death Qi in this Human-Demon Paradise being overly dense, giving Dugu Ao the advantage, even if he used the innate ability of the Blood Demon—the Blood Demon Transformation—he could not have lasted this long.
The most important thing was that Dugu Ao was about to run out of time and could not maintain the transformation.
As Xiao Chen watched, his heart bled. This was what he feared the most in the world. There were some things that were clearly salvageable, but one failed to do so due to various reasons, to one’s eternal regret.
Just like now. If Xiao Chen could struggle free from Mu Xiyan’s control, Dugu Ao might not die.
Back then, when Ao Jiao blocked the Lightning Tribulation for Xiao Chen, he swore never to let such a thing happen to him again.
Xiao Chen was not willing to feel that heart-wrenching pain and that extreme regret a second time.
Right now, Xiao Chen did not blame Mu Xiyan. Everyone had their own hard and fast rules. In Mu Xiyan’s world, Dugu Ao’s words reigned supreme.
Even if Dugu Ao wanted Mu Xiyan to die, she would not hesitate to do it.
Persevere! Don’t die! Don’t ever die!
Seeing that Dugu Ao was still fighting, Xiao Chen did his best to struggle free. Veins popped out on his tightly clenched fists, and sweat rolled down his forehead.
Xiao Chen slowly regained control over his body, gradually eliminating Mu Xiyan’s pink energy from his body.
After a long time, he found a few ways to deal with the pink energy. After executing them, they slowly showed their effectiveness.
Suddenly, Dugu Ao’s aura plummeted. He could no longer maintain his Blood Demon Transformation.
Dugu Ao’s efforts to delay these twelve half-step Martial Emperors had injured several of them. If they did not kill him, they would not be able to vent the hatred in their hearts.
Seeing that Dugu Ao could no longer maintain the Blood Demon Transformation, the twelve half-step Martial Emperors shouted and erupted with the rage they had been holding back all this time. Their figures all flashed as they charged towards Dugu Ao.
Dugu Ao coughed endlessly, and blood flowed without pause. As he watched the twelve half-step Martial Emperors charging over, his consciousness slowly blurred.
Before Dugu Ao fainted, he turned his head back to look and saw that Xiao Chen still had not left. He wanted to call out loudly one final time.
However, Dugu Ao’s throat was already so hoarse that he could not speak anymore. He opened his mouth to shout “go,” but no sound came out.
After that, Dugu Ao’s eyes closed, and he passed out, his life status unknown.
The instant Dugu Ao’s eyes closed, Mu Xiyan’s mental state showed a clear opening. Xiao Chen, who was close to struggling free, roared furiously and shot forward.
Right before the twelve half-step Martial Emperors reached Dugu Ao, Xiao Chen shouted, “Die!”
Without even needing to think, Xiao Chen took out the trump card he kept—the Solar Plume Feather.
This was the Solar Plume Feather that could even kill a Martial Emperor. The instant it burned, it gave off a brilliant light as dazzling as the sun, so bright that others could not open their eyes.
At that moment, the entire Human-Demon Paradise was awash in the light from the Solar Plume Feather.
When the twelve half-step Martial Emperors felt that dangerous aura, their expressions instantly changed. The sight of the Solar Plume Feather startled them all.
Initially, these people charged over with ferocious auras to kill Dugu Ao. After they saw the Solar Plume Feather, they frantically retreated.
However, it was already too late. No matter how fast these people tried to retreat, they could not dodge it entirely.
Miserable shrieks rang out, and four human experts, who were leading the charge, turned to ashes when the light swept over, dying without a corpse.
The others were swept up in the shock waves, all of them sustaining injuries.
At least six half-step Martial Emperors retained their combat prowess. Even if Xiao Chen were not injured, he would still be no match for them. What more when he was currently heavily wounded?
After Xiao Chen rationally analyzed the situation, he supported the unconscious Dugu Ao and coldly looked at those half-step Martial Emperors. Then, he quickly landed beside Mu Xiyan.
“Let’s go!” Xiao Chen said in a rush to Mu Xiyan. Then, carrying Dugu Ao with one hand and Mu Xiyan with the other, he quickly fled to the depths of the Human-Demon Paradise.
