Chapter 604 - Eye of Destiny
In the limitless ocean, an hour before Zhao Feng and the Death Guard fought.
“Hehehe, the third drawing’s about to be done.”
The white-eyed little girl looked at the little thieving cat in the picture.
“Let me see.”
The warm youth came over, and the other two Death Guards curiously looked over as well. However, their expressions changed dramatically when they saw the drawing.
“How is that possible…!?”
The warm youth and the two Death Guards exclaimed.
In the drawing, the little thieving cat’s eyes was filled with cunningness, and its opponent was in a disastrous state. A mysterious dagger had been stabbed through the Death Guard’s heart, and the little thieving cat’s dagger sparkled with an aura of Destruction as it pierced through the Death Guard’s body.
“Did you draw it correctly?”
“Even though the thirty-third Death Guard is one of the weaker ones, he won’t be killed in a single move by a cat.”
The two Death Guards felt that it was unrealistic but, thinking about how it was just a drawing by a mischievous little girl, they understood and smiled.
“Junior Martial Sister Bai Lin, you’re playing with us, aren’t you?”
The warm youth smiled meekly.
“Bai Lin isn’t lying to anyone… sniff... I really like that cat.”
The white-eyed little girl started to cry, and the warm youth quickly started to comfort her. However, at the same time, the little girl’s drawing made the youth become uneasy.
“The Shadow Kill Imperial Blade is a supreme item of the Dao of Assassination, and it can ignore all defenses. It even counters the Death Shadow Body.”
The warm youth suddenly remembered something.
“Third Prince, we would sense something if the thirty-third guard died.”
One of the Death Guards laughed, and hearing that, the warm youth let out a breath.
Right at this moment, the white-eyed little girl smiled, “Hahaha, dummy, this happens an hour later.”
An hour later?
The two Death Guards couldn’t help but smile when they heard that.
“Hmph! Master said that I was the inheritor of the bloodline of the Eye of Destiny.”
The white-eyed little girl said angrily.
Eye of Destiny?
Everyone present, including the warm youth, were stunned.
On the other side of the limitless ocean:
“Haha…. You’re courting death. The Shadow Kill Imperial Dagger shall be mine.”
The Death Guard laughed as black beams of blade-light devoured the little thieving cat.
A wisp of eye-bloodline power was activated, and a whirlpool suddenly appeared and sucked in the little thieving cat.
At the same moment:
Boom! Boom! Boom!
The wave of black blade beams sliced everything into nothingness.
I’d like to see how you’re going to evade this time. My attack does damage through the air within a hundred yards.
The Death Guard laughed coldly in his heart, but his expression changed the next instant. There was a familiar spatial disturbance near the little thieving cat’s location.
“Rescued? No! Dammit~~~~!”
The expression of the Death Guard changed dramatically.
A wisp of eye-bloodline power could be felt as a whirlpool suddenly appeared right on top of him.
A dark, transparent dagger passed through his heart.
The Death Guard froze as fear and panic appeared on his face.
The dagger that passed through his body was the Shadow Kill Imperial Dagger, and it had wisps of a Destruction aura on its surface.
His Death Shadow Body didn’t have much defense against the Shadow Kill Imperial Dagger to begin with, but even more terrifying was that the Shadow Kill Imperial Dagger had pierced through his heart. The attack stabbed through the same location as the first Void Space Eye Slash, and the injury from that aura of Destruction still hadn’t healed yet.
The little thieving cat leapt through the Death Guard’s body after creating a hole in his heart.
The Death Guard’s body started to blink between his real and fake bodies. His eyes were full of hatred as he stared at the little thieving cat that just jumped through him.
“Wave… Wave of Death!”
He managed to radiate a wave of Death across several hundred yards.
A streak of gray and silver passed through the air as the little thieving cat disappeared.
The little thieving cat’s voice appeared from Zhao Feng’s ancient metal ring the next instant.
Zhao Feng’s Water Spirit Giant form began to ripple.
“What a terrifying power of Death….”
Zhao Feng was still injured despite his current state.
Luckily, his state of existence and body were extremely strong, and he was currently in a liquid state, all of which meant that his recovery speed was monstrous.
The Death Guard’s body fell from the sky.
Zhao Feng saw that there were no signs of life from the Death Guard with his God’s Spiritual Eye.
Zhao Feng let out a long breath as his liquefied body started to condense.
“Little thieving cat, good job.”
Zhao Feng felt like he had a new lease on life.
The little thieving cat appeared on his shoulder and laughed before making a face at the body of the Death Guard.
The little thieving cat played a huge part in killing the Death Guard. If it weren’t for the little thieving cat, Zhao Feng wouldn’t have been able to turn the tide.
“The Void Space Eye Slash and the Shadow Kill Imperial Dagger are both things that can threaten the Death Guard. The little thieving cat was teleported inside the Death Guard’s body, and an aura of Destruction was added to the Shadow Kill Imperial Dagger. What a perfect combination.”
Excitement appeared on Zhao Feng’s face. Because the little thieving cat was only slightly bigger than a palm, it could be transported through space.
Spatial Movement was a spatial ability, and if the target was a living being, the target couldn’t resist at all or else the difficulty would become countless times harder.
Choosing to move the little thieving cat was a killing move they decided on beforehand.
“We can’t stay here for long.”
Zhao Feng’s face was pale-white and tired.
The feeling of danger had faded by more than half, but it was still there. He understood that the Death Guard was just a little subordinate of the Emperor of Death.
The Pursuit of Death would continue until the mission was accomplished.
An intent of Death appeared on the corpse, and it was even purer than before.
Wisps of Death enveloped the Death Guard’s body, and the injuries started to recover.
Although there were no signs of life returning to the corpse, the injuries were starting to heal.
Zhao Feng’s God’s Spiritual Eye saw a unique Token of Death that was mostly similar to the one on Grandmaster Yin Kong, and the intent of Death had grasped the Death Guard’s soul.
“Dammit, the Death Shadow Body is immortal. There’s a possibility of revival as long as the soul isn’t destroyed.”
Zhao Feng’s expression became solemn.
Luckily, the Death Guard’s body had been destroyed, so he shouldn’t be able to revive very quickly.
Zhao Feng ordered.
Zhao Feng didn’t dare to go close to the Death Guard. He was the subordinate of the unfathomable Emperor of Death, and he had a Token of Death protecting him.
Furthermore, Zhao Feng didn’t want to touch anything on the Death Guard’s body anyway.
Zhao Feng waved his hand and put away the hundred cursed ghost-corpses.
“Master… save me….”
Amongst the smoke, two flames twitched within the eye sockets of a skeleton that had been chopped up.
The skeletal Division Leader’s body was similar to a ghost-corpse, so it wouldn’t easily die as long as the soul wasn’t destroyed.
Zhao Feng waved his hand and put the skeletal Division Leader into the Ten Thousand Ghost Pearl. Anything related to ghost-corpses would became stronger and recover faster in the Ten Thousand Ghost Pearl.
“Unfortunately, the array flag has been broken, and the skeletal Division Leader has been severely injured. The Ghost Corpse Cursed Array won’t be able to be used for a while.”
Zhao Feng felt troubled. Although they won, the price they paid to do it was huge.
The Blue Lightning Sea Sky Ship surfaced from the ocean, and Zhao Feng jumped onto it.
Under the control of Loulan Zhishui and company, the Blue Lightning Sea Sky Ship entered the limitless ocean.
At the same time:
The body of the Death Guard turned into a black streak of light that flew through the air with the help of the Token of Death.
“The Token of Death is indeed not simple.”
Zhao Feng’s eyes twinkled.
The Token of Death contained the Emperor of Death’s intent of Death, and it can even cause the Eye of Death to descend, but Zhao Feng was surprised that the Emperor of Death’s power didn’t descend.
For some reason, it seemed that the Emperor of Death was unable to personally participate and had to send subordinates in his stead.
Zhao Feng didn’t know that the Emperor of Death had used the Bridge of Death, a super wide-ranged skill, to locate him, thus needing to sleep for several years in order to recover.
On the other side of the limitless ocean:
The warm youth and the two Death Guards both sensed something.
The Tokens of Death in their hands trembled and sent them a piece of information.
“The thirty-third guard has died.”
The heart of the warm youth shook. According to the reports, the target’s cultivation hadn’t even reached the Origin Core Realm.
“Although the thirty-third Death Guard is one of the weaker guards, his strength is still enough to defeat anyone at the Origin Core Realm. Even normal Great Origin Core Realms are like babies to him.”
One of the Death Guards murmured.
How could the thirty-third guard have died?
The three were in disbelief, but this was reality. The drawing by the white-eyed little girl an hour ago had been proved.
“But the thirty-third guard’s soul hasn’t been destroyed, so it can still be recovered. We’ll know what happened soon.”
The eyes of the youth flashed.
As long as the thirty-third guard woke up, they’d have more information on the target, giving them a higher rate of success next time.
“Furthermore, we still have this helper here….”
The warm youth’s gaze landed on the white-eyed little girl, and he felt much more confident.
