“Damn you!” Li Yao roared and retreated quickly. The thorough and detailed plans in his head exploded before they reintegrated in fierce collisions and vibrations!
Now that he had already been exposed, there was nothing to be scared of anymore. Without caring about the sharp residue inside the tube, he went back to the turn of the tube in the blink of an eye, before his spiritual energy burst out and detonated the entire tube like a crystal bomb, pushing him out!
The next moment, an enormous hand more than two meters both in length and width passed the end of the tube brutally. It kneaded the messy rubes and rails in the dome of the warehouse and dragged them down!
Deity Raincloud had attacked furiously in the black-skeleton-like Colossus!
Had Li Yao not reacted promptly enough but dawdled for half a second longer, he might have been grabbed by the enormous hand of the Colossus, with his flesh and blood pressed together with the steel residues!
Li Yao had no time to curse the vile snitch. He was still drifting in midair and had not landed.
The thirty-meter-tall Colossus was right next to him. Compared to the out-and-out black iron tower, he looked truly insignificant.
It was like a battle between a mouse and an elephant.
As it happened, the ‘elephant’ was also entangled with countless extensible crimson vipers that could be long or short as it desired!
After Deity Raincloud missed the first attack, the whips on the torso and the arms darted out in ear-splitting noises again, evolving into dozens of sharp spears that bit the critical parts all over Li Yao’s body!
Looking at the fang-like thorns on the crystal clusters, Li Yao felt that he had been terribly bitten by the vipers!
Li Yao’s body immediately turned into a cluster of gray mist as he activated his small-scale movement techniques to the maximum.
Yet, quite a few crimson whips, with their hooks and thorns, ripped almost eighty bloody wounds on his body ruthlessly and took away many a piece of his flesh along the way.
After the dozens of whips passed by, Li Yao was immediately soaked in blood!
Li Yao and Deity Raincloud’s confrontation only happened for one moment, but it was like a bucket of oil added toward the sparking ambience!
“Attack!” Qi Zhongdao and Han Baling roared at the same times. Their flames of spiritual energy soared dozens of meters high instantly and almost formed giants similar to the size of the black-skeleton-like Colossus!
The Heaven Flipping Seal, the best magical equipment of the Ancient Sages Sector, was rotating at a super high speed again. Silver, glittering brightness was spreading out between the silver balls and the round rails. The super high gravity pressed down like an invisible mountain. The air around the black-skeleton-like Colossus almost entirely froze!
Han Baling shook his hammer that looked like a bear-claw in the air, too, and a layer of translucent, golden light was dancing around the weapon. He clenched the rear end of the hammer with both hands and bashed it on the ground brutally with a bellow!
Boom! Boom! Boom!
Invisible spiritual waves moved toward the black-skeleton-like Colossus below the ground and did not burst out until they reached the target’s legs. They erupted like invisible firecrackers and exploded at the knees of the Colossus.
The technique to consolidate spiritual energy, transmit it below the ground, and keep it condensed until it jumped out and exploded in midair in order to cause the greatest damage to the target showed Han Baling’s most subtle control over his spiritual energy. Li Yao could not help but feel amazed while holding his head and running in a hurry!
As the two super Nascent Soul Stage Cultivators attacked with their full might, the rest of the top experts launched their techniques!
Despite the shortness of Yan Liren’s sword, it was unleashing an overwhelming aura that was more than ten meters long. This time, he was not pursuing agility but simply improved the ‘damage’ to the maximum. It was almost like he was smashing a ferocious tornado toward the black-skeleton-like Colossus!
There was no telling what Deity Raincloud’s concerns were, but it appeared that he did not want to have a head-on clash with Yan Liren’s secret sword.
However, Master Bitter Cicada’s pearls and ‘Heaven Battering King’ Qi Changsheng, who had turned into burning flames, were attacking him, one from the left and the other from the right. As a result, he reacted more slowly than he should have.
After an ear-splitting boom, a surging tide was raised on the red shield around the black-skeleton-like Colossus. It was almost like Yan Liren had slashed apart a bottomless ocean!
Deep inside the breastplate of the black-skeleton-like Colossus, in the middle of the spiritual residence, Deity Raincloud roared in anger and embarrassment.
The attack might not necessarily have hurt him, but he was definitely shocked and humiliated. He shouted in the utmost fury, “Die! You will all die!”
Ba Xiaoyu the Beggar and Mother White Lotus Wan Mingzhu’s fighting styles were both swift and unpredictable. The two of them were hovering around the black-skeleton-like Colossus in two streaks of brightness, one translucent and the other solid, like two buzzing flies. No matter how furiously Deity Raincloud bellowed and how hard he shooed them away, he was not able to get rid of them. Instead, they were launching attacks toward the Colossus’ head to disrupt Deity Raincloud’s senses!
The Three Saints, the Four Rapscallions, and Master Bitter Cicada should have been standing on two incompatible sides. However, under the daunting oppression of the mysterious ‘Deity Raincloud’, they had to let go of their grudges and conflicts for the time being and fight against the common foe together!
They were all Nascent Soul Stage Cultivators whose fighting sense had reached the peak. Although it was the first time that they had cooperated, they seemed to have rehearsed their moves hundreds of times. Their attacks were incessant and flawless. Deity Raincloud was barely able to defend himself in the flurry!
With the assistance of the many super Nascent Soul Stage Cultivators, Li Yao was finally able to get away from the weird bloody claws of the black-skeleton-like Colossus. He took a breath in relief before he suddenly had a weird feeling.
Something… was not right!
If this ‘Deity Raincloud’ was truly a special agent of the Imperium of True Human Beings, his combat ability seemed too weak with a Colossus!
Li Yao’s heart suddenly pounded. He immediately realized that the black-skeleton-like Colossus was likely extremely difficult to pilot and would put a heavy burden on the pilot’s spiritual energy and soul. Or maybe it had certain hidden problems that were yet to be fixed. It was also possible that the Colossus had been installed with mysterious barriers and locks. All in all, the special agent had not completely seized control of the Colossus yet. He had not even brought out five percent of the Colossus’ combat ability!
This was an opportunity!
Li Yao had planned to crawl into another Colossus nearby to join the battle.
However, after noticing that the special agent’s capabilities were not as high as he had imagined and that the situation was so chaotic, he changed his mind.
The Colossi on the maintenance platforms nearby might not be functional. Now that he had been exposed, it would be practically impossible for him to get a few uninterrupted minutes to crack the operation system of a brand-new Colossus.
Since the enemy’s capabilities were not as high as he had imagined, and almost all the super Nascent Soul Stage Cultivators were united against the special agent of the Imperium, maybe he could…
Crawl into the black-skeleton-like Colossus and launch attacks toward the special agent directly!
Should he have a try?
Li Yao observed the whole battlefield calmly from the dome like a black ape whose feet were clutching the gaps on the ceiling.
The warehouse of the Colossi had completely turned into a simmering ocean of fighting will. The situation could not have been more chaotic!
Although Deity Raincloud was unable to annihilate the super Nascent Soul Stage Cultivators with the black-skeleton-like Colossus instantly due to the uncanny restraints, he was certainly not alone but assisted by more than ten Fiery Phoenix imperial guards, who were wearing the string-light crystal suits and loyal like puppets!
After being enhanced by the crystal suits, they boasted combat ability at least in the beginning level of the Nascent Soul Stage, and their remote firepower could not have been fiercer!
Furthermore, he had twenty-eight high-level Cultivators who had knelt and surrendered to him. The traitors had no choice but to follow him to the end now!
Even many of the Cultivators who were standing had other plans like that snitch. They were suddenly attacking their companions, trying to impress their new master with their contributions!
“Protect the deity!”
“Shoot down Qi Zhongdao and the rest of them, and buy more time for the deity!”
“It is not a deity but a devil that must be eliminated!”
“Idiots! Take down this so-called Deity Raincloud, and we can draw more benefits out of him. Chances are that more Cloud Qin Gold Statues are waiting for us!”
The Cultivators who had been mixed up previously were completely lost. Everybody’s spiritual energy was surging out like flames, their eyes bloodshot and their killing intent raging!
The ten or so Fiery Phoenix imperial guards marched toward Qi Zhongdao and the other super Nascent Soul Stage Cultivators without considering the cost, trying to stall the enemy even at the cost of their own lives so that Deity Raincloud would have more time to catch his breath and organize a counterattack.
The Cultivators who were loyal to the court, Cloud Qin, the Heaven Battering Army, the White Lotus Cult… or in general, the Ancient Sages Sector, were marching toward those Fiery Phoenix imperial guards!
The ‘pre-Immortal Cultivators’ who had just pledged loyalty to their new master and were obsessed with the idea of ascending to the deities’ realm and embarking on the path of immortality, naturally, harassed those Cultivators without letting go of them!
They were like a bunch of vipers who were biting each other’s tails. There was no telling who was going to be torn apart by the enemy!
When everybody was mired in a hellish slaughterhouse, only two people remained calm as if they were not involved in the issue.
Li Yao and Long Yangjun!
Li Yao watched Long Yangjun approach a Colossus stealthily and crawl into it without alarming anyone. He could not help but feel overjoyed!
However, after only several seconds, Long Yangjun crawled out again and made a gesture of confusion toward Li Yao. She simply leapt out and joined Qi Zhongdao, Han Baling, and the rest of them to attack Deity Raincloud together!
Are you serious? You don’t know how to pilot a Colossus? You are a shame for the elite warriors of the Nuwa Clan’s army!
Li Yao gritted his teeth so hard that smoke was almost popping out from his mouth.
Boom! Boom! Boom!
As Long Yangjun joined the battle, of the ten top experts of the Ancient Sages Sector who were close to or even beyond the peak of the Nascent Soul Stage, Li Yao and Emperor Phoenix were the only two who had not launched attacks yet!
Faced with such a luxury lineup, even Deity Raincloud in the black-skeleton-like Colossus felt overwhelming pressure. As the blade auras and the primeval treasures exploded around him nonstop, the black-skeleton-like Colossus was drowned in a series of dazzling blasts!
