A brilliant wave of fire shot forth from the Cataclysmic Seal. Transforming into a massive net of fire, the light then surrounded the shell-shaped soul armament!
Somehow, the soul armament wasn’t blown backward by the force of its collision with the Cataclysmic Seal. Instead, it came to a stop as if it was actually trapped by a net and began to tremble.
It was only for a second that it trembled before the Cataclysmic Seal’s light started to recede. Unable to resist the invisible attraction from the Cataclysmic Seal, the shell-shaped soul armament was pulled closer and closer until…it melted into the Cataclysmic Seal’s body!
Like a blackhole, the Cataclysmic Seal was somehow absorbing the other soul armament into itself!
Releasing a sound not unlike a burp, the Cataclysmic Seal began to lose its glow.
Gu Lianhun froze up at that moment. His face had gone entirely white when he groaned and spat out a mouthful of blood!
He was in shock at what had just happened. What in the world was that?
His strongest defensive soulbound armament was…destroyed?!
His soul armament was gone!
He felt what happened to his soul armament when it was sucked into the Cataclysmic Seal. His imprint was forcibly removed when the shell-shaped soul armament was destroyed, causing his soul to be further harmed!
A furious roar escaped from Gu Lianhun’s lips as he exploded with black light. But instead of charging at Bai Yunfei, he…turned around to retreat!
Hardly any time went by since Bai Yunfei first came into his place and was attacked by Gu Lianhun. But despite the short amount of time, the number of events was far too many, and most of them were far too much for Gu Lianhun to properly accept. His mind was in disarray and his soul in chaos. With how much pain he was in, Gu Lianhun could hardly even think of anything else but terror!
“What? Who is he?! What did he do?! How did he even manage to do this?!!”
Gu Lianhun roared to himself. He was humiliated beyond belief. Humiliated and furious that he couldn’t do a thing about it.
As he drew farther away from Bai Yunfei, Gu Lianhun felt the pain in his soul abate to a manageable degree. Sighing in relief, he turned back to look at Bai Yunfei only to be alarmed when two dangerous auras suddenly appeared in front of him!
The Cataclysmic Seal wasn’t the only part in Bai Yunfei’s plan that was in motion. While it was absorbing Gu Lianhun’s soul armament, there were two other people in motion!
Shen Pojun! And the Frostfeather Saint!
They were able to see everything going on while in the Core World. So they were ready to come out at the most optimal time to strike, and that moment was now!
Shen Pojun’s aura was like the sea in the middle of a storm. Light as red as fire rolled off from his person as his Flame Dragon Crescent Blade stabbed straight for Gu Lianhun!
The spear cleaved through the swathes of black light and cleared it away from everyone!
The Frostfeather Saint was taking action as well. While Shen Pojun was clearing the light around them all, the Frostfeather Saint shot toward the retreating Gu Lianhun!
The chaotic space in this place was immediately mixed with a layer of icy-cold frost. Somehow, a snowstorm began to take place as elemental ice gathered in larger amounts. The Frostfeather Saint was completely surrounded by a blinding white light that shined as bright as the sun!
Gone was the Frostfeather Saint’s humanoid figure. In its place was a giant figure with two wings!
The figure let out a loud bird-like cry before it extended its wings—this was the true form of the Frostfeather Saint, the class nine Frost Phoenix!
The Frostfeather Saint transformed into its strongest form for battle for the sake of killing Gu Lianhun as quickly as he could. Not even Shangguan Xiongyan would be able to fight him now!
The air around the Frostfeather Saint was absolutely suffocating. A single flap of his wings caused the world to tremble as if reacting to his presence. This was the battle form of a soulbeast, and in front of him, not even Xiao Qi (when in his battle form) would be comparable to him…
The transformation from humanoid form to soulbeast form took only a single moment. The elemental ice around him immediately transformed into sharp blades of energy that took off to strike down Gu Lianhun!
After getting rid of the light around them all, Shen Pojun shot up to the Frostfeather Saint’s side to prepare an attack of his own. Grasping his soul armament, Shen Pojun accumulated the nearby elemental fire to turn into a rampaging dragon to send after Gu Lianhun!
Gu Lianhun shrieked, unable to contain his shock.
It seemed like nothing was making sense anymore. A Soul Emperor was able to take on his attack, reflect his soul attack, and destroy his soulbound armament. And now two Saints had appeared out of thin air to attack him!
This was the biggest shock Gu Lianhun had ever felt in his life. And to make matters even worse, he didn’t even have the time to say how ridiculous this was!
Given the circumstances, there was no way Gu Lianhun would’ve known his actions and reactions were calculated beforehand. He had no idea how his opponents had done any of this, but it was time for him to fight for his life!
Fury bled into his eyes as he howled. His right hand immediately came up to slam itself over the part of his chest where his heart was!
It was a heavy blow filled with elemental energy that caused Gu Lianhun to let out another mouthful of blood!
The pain of the blow was mighty, but the anger he felt at the situation overwhelmed the pain. Soulforce flowed out from his body in large amounts as he prepared for his retaliation!
The light around him turned dark. Spider-web like cracks appeared in the air around him as the elemental energy started to destabilize. Like a mirror shattering into thousands of pieces, the space around him was collapsing at a devastating rate!
With Gu Lianhun at its center, the cracks began to cover more and more ground!
The cracks extended for several steps before encroaching onto the area where the Frostfeather Saint’s attack was. There was an explosion as the blades of elemental ice crashed against the cracks, but the majority of the blades were swallowed up into the cracks as if falling into a bottomless swamp. The Laws of Ice were extremely powerful, but the cracks proved to be even stronger. After a while, the network of cracks managed to swallow up every single blade into itself.
But there was still one more attack to deal with! After the Frostfeather Saint’s attack was dealt with, the fire dragon from Shen Pojun made its entrance!
“Boom boom boom…”
Slamming into the cracks, the dragon broke apart into waves of fire to continue onward. It managed to make it several steps toward Gu Lianhun before dissipating to reveal a sharp Flame Dragon Crescent Blade coming down to strike Gu Lianhun’s head!
