Chapter 1723: Comprehending Divine Powers
Within the Endless Blood Sea.
The Dragon Phoenix True Body fell into it and could barely defend against the Shadowless Emperor’s attack—he could not escape at all!
However, the longer he stayed in the Blood Sea, the deeper the influence on the Dragon Phoenix True Body by the filthy power of the Blood Sea!
Initially, his body burned with the Dragon Phoenix Flames.
But now, the Dragon Phoenix Flames were completely extinguished!
The Blood Emperor channeled the Endless Blood Sea while refining the bloodlines on the battlefield, causing the power of the Blood Sea to increase.
Not only did the filthy and evil power of the Blood Sea extinguish the Dragon Phoenix Flames, it even began to infect the Dragon Phoenix scales and seep into his bloodline!
The blood qi of the Dragon Phoenix True Body intensified!
In melee combat, he could no longer defend against the Shadowless Emperor’s attacks and more wounds appeared on his body!
What was even more serious was that the Hell Witch Emperor’s Five Yin Fiend Ghosts stuck to him the entire time and gnawed at his flesh and lifeforce!
The Dragon Phoenix True Body was already at his limits dealing with the Shadowless Emperor in the Endless Blood Sea and could not break free from the Five Yin Fiend Ghosts.
The Five Yin Fiend Ghosts did not only devour lifeforce and flesh, but also lifespan!
Unknowingly, the Dragon Phoenix True Body had already lost 100,000 years of lifespan in that short period of time!
Even though the Dragon Phoenix was a taboo and had a lifespan of hundreds of thousands of years, it could not withstand the speed of deterioration!
However, he was helpless to stop it.
He had already used up all his trump cards and his defeat was certain.
Not far away, Night Spirit burned his lifespan but could not escape from the pursuit of the Golden Crow Fire Emperor and Thousand Eye Emperor.
Against the attacks of the two top Emperors, Night Spirit’s injuries worsened and his blood qi began to deteriorate—his movement technique was no longer as agile as before.
It was only a matter of time before Night Spirit died as well.
The situation of the Green Lotus True Body was even more tragic.
After being surrounded by the nine Emperors of the primordial races and losing Three Heads Six Arms, the Green Lotus True Body was almost shattered and could die at any moment!
Was he going to lose?
If he lost this battle, he would not be the one to die.
The storyteller would die.
Emperors of the Dragon, Kun and Barbarian races would die.
The Emperors of the human race would die.
At the borders of the North Region, all the cultivators who fought against the eight demon regions and Primordial Six Races would not be able to escape the fate of defeat!
The humans of Tianhuang Mainland would either be extinguished or enslaved!
He could not afford to lose!
He could not lose this battle either!
Even if the Martial Dao Prime Body came out of seclusion successfully and returned, it would be too late for regrets if he saw the human race of Tianhuang Mainland destroyed!
At that time, his old friends would already be dead.
Without Yaoxue, Little Fatty, Lin Xuanji, Demoness Ji and Ming Zhen, what was the point of having the Martial Dao Prime Body be alive all alone?
Crack! Crack! Crack!
The Five Yin Fiend Ghosts bit the flesh of the Dragon Phoenix True Body continuously and devoured it in huge mouthfuls. They had excited expressions and their eyes shone with faint green lights.
The Dragon Phoenix True Body was already bloodied from the bites and it was a tragic sight.
He was already numb to the pain.
A thought flashed through the Dragon Phoenix True Body’s mind as he sensed the deterioration of his lifespan and he suddenly fell into a mysterious state!
If he could comprehend another supreme divine power, he could break out of the situation!
As long as there was enough time, the Dragon Phoenix True Body could cultivate many greater divine powers to the level of supreme divine powers.
Over the years, the Dragon Phoenix True Body had also attempted to cultivate many greater divine powers.
Among them, apart from the Six Tusk Divine Strength, he cultivated Time Is Like a Saber the most!
The Dragon Phoenix True Body had already cultivated Barren at the Void Reversion realm.
The essence of Barren was the power of time.
Furthermore, he had obtained the inheritance of Half-Martial Ancestor Instant in the stone statue cemetery in the Dao Inheritance Ground—that was also a power of time.
Although the Dragon Phoenix True Body had come into contact with the power of time a long time ago, it was way too mysterious and difficult to comprehend.
Time passed and was everywhere.
The cycle of life and death was time.
The passing of spring and arrival of autumn was time.
The rise and set of the sun was time.
The transformation from a sea to a field was time.
Time was like a saber and every single slash was pressing.
Time was everywhere but difficult to capture.
Although the Dragon Phoenix True Body knew about Barren and could condense the Time Saber, he had not been able to advance the Time Saber to the level of a supreme divine power for the past thousand years.
One of the most important reasons was because he had yet to truly experience the power of time!
Up till this point of his cultivation, he had only cultivated for a few thousand years.
For the Taboo Dragon Phoenix with a lifespan of hundreds of thousands of years, he was like a child after thousands of years—how could he understand the vicissitudes of life?
But now, in this tragic battle, the Five Yin Fiend Ghosts Curse of the Hell Witch Emperor made the Dragon Phoenix True Body experience the cruelty of time deeply!
Earlier on, he lost 100,000 years of lifespan.
In this short period of time, he lost another 100,000 years of his lifespan after the Five Yin Fiend Ghosts gnawed on his flesh!
200,000 years of lifespan had already passed!
This was a feeling and experience that he had never gone through before.
A mysterious feeling rose in the Dragon Phoenix True Body’s heart as he entered a state of enlightenment.
In that instant, he gained a new understanding and comprehension towards the power of time.
All the doubts he had encountered over the past thousand years seemed to have been answered.
Within the Endless Blood Sea.
The eyes of the Dragon Phoenix True Body closed.
Against the Shadowless Emperor’s melee combat, he relied entirely on his spirit perception and instincts!
At the same time, a mysterious energy fluctuation gradually spread from the Dragon Phoenix True Body. It was extremely obscure and grew stronger!
“How dare you close your eyes!”
The Shadowless Emperor felt extremely provoked and humiliated as his attacks turned fiercer.
However, the power of the Dragon Phoenix True Body seemed to be getting stronger as well, neutralizing all his attacks!
“What’s going on?”
Suddenly, the Blood Emperor frowned and noticed something unusual.
The filthy power of the Blood Sea could not seep into the Dragon Phoenix True Body’s body and bloodline, as though it was met with an immense resistance!
The Hell Witch Emperor sensed something as well and his expression changed.
He could sense that although the Five Yin Fiend Ghosts were still chewing the flesh of the Dragon Phoenix, his lifespan was no longer decreasing!
Right then, the Hell Witch Emperor felt an obscure energy fluctuation!
Suddenly, the Hell Witch Emperor’s eyes widened and his expression changed as he exclaimed, “Supreme divine power!”
The Blood Emperor asked instinctively.
“Hurry! Hurry and interrupt him!”
The Hell Witch Emperor shrieked and pointed at the Dragon Phoenix True Body, shouting, “He’s comprehending a supreme divine power! We can’t let him continue comprehending!”
There was something else that the Hell Witch Emperor did not manage to say.
Supreme divine powers varied in strength as well.
Weak supreme divine powers such as Sleeve Universe and Concealment did not pose much of a threat to them because they did not have much killing power.
Powerful supreme divine powers such as the Killing Word Art or Paramita Bridge of the Eternal Human Emperor could kill Emperors upon release!
As for the Hell Witch Emperor, he felt shudders when he sensed that divine power aura from the Dragon Phoenix!
He did not know what supreme divine power the Dragon Phoenix True Body was comprehending.
However, he knew that this supreme divine power was definitely not weaker than the Killing Word Art or the Paramita Bridge!
