Luo Yunyang had actually expected Murat’s defeat.
Although Murat was very strong, the Sea God Rider was even stronger. Furthermore, Murat didn’t have an advantage out on the vast ocean.
In fact, her defeat was perfectly normal.
Sea God Rider Qiongsi’s attack was like a sea of dreadful waves that was difficult to withstand. The instant that azure pike shot forth to kill, it was as boundless and vast as the ocean.
Evading this sort of omnipresent attack was simply impossible. Trying to dodge it now would practically be suicide.
Murat clambered up to her feet on the ocean’s surface with great difficulty. Her five viscera hurt, and she felt a burning sensation within her body.
Her source core had ruptured!
This rarely ever happened during a battle, yet it had happened to her. Murat suddenly felt dejected.
Would Luo Yunyang be able to take this strike?
As Qiongsi charged, a strange glow flashed through Luo Yunyang’s eyes. It was the Great Divine Elemental Eye!
The Great Divine Elemental Eye made Qiongsi’s speed stagnate for a moment. Although this moment was short, for top experts like them, it was actually a very long period.
As Qiongsi was suppressed by the Great Divine Elemental Eye, Luo Yunyang’s fists collided hard with the azure pike.
Qiongsi was pushed back. The raging ocean waves that were like a row of mountains frantically receded along with this strike.
“Good technique!” Qiongsi calmed the azure steed he was riding. There was a trace of heartfelt praise in his voice as he spoke to Luo Yunyang.
Similarly, Luo Yunyang felt really surprised that Qiongsi had been able to break free of the Great Divine Elemental Eye’s binds that quickly.
He had reckoned that his Great Divine Elemental Eye would at least be able to restrain Qiongsi for three seconds. However, the moment Qiongsi was affected by this restricting power, a special power emanated from his body.
This suffocating power broke through the restraints of the Great Divine Elemental Eye and allowed Qiongsi to retaliate quickly.
“You are very strong. If you could keep unleashing this sort of techniques, then you wouldn’t be any weaker than me. However, if the humans only have one expert like you, then I have to advise you to turn back!”
Suddenly, Qiongsi said calmly, “I could let the two of you join us and become members of Atlantis.”
Luo Yunyang’s communication device suddenly rang. “Yunyang, it’s me, Lu Qubing. We really are lacking the power to hold off the Atlanteans during this negotiation! Their display of strength has been spectacular. We do not have the power to suppress them, but we do have the strength to make them apprehensive. For example, we could fight the sea waters surrounding our cities!”
Lu Qubing didn’t mask his voice at all, so the Sea God Rider Qiongsi could also hear him very clearly.
Qiongsi flashed Luo Yunyang a faint smile. “What your comrade says is right. However, what you can do is limited to what you just did. I could take responsibility for this and say that you have already done your best. My comrades are currently rushing over, so I think that the two of you shouldn’t struggle anymore.”
Murat glared at Qiongsi with burning, maniacal eyes. Meanwhile, a black glow started to emanate from her body.
Any god-grade powerhouse who was familiar with Murat could understand what she was trying to do.
She was striving her hardest, ready to give this fight her all.
The look on Luo Yunyang’s face suddenly changed. As he stared at Qiongsi, who was standing a short distance away, understanding flooded his heart.
Luo Yunyang believed that perhaps he might be able to defeat Qiongsi by doing his best and using various techniques and abilities. However, the outcome would eventually still be a wretched victory.
Luo Yunyang did not want this by any means. He had moved with Murat for the sake of giving the Da Alliance a chance to negotiate on equal terms, not so that they would become the sheep the so-called God saw them as.
“I want a tour of Atlantis, and you can’t stop me from getting it!” Luo Yunyang said calmly as he stared at Qiongsi confidently.
Although Qiongsi’s face was shielded by a helmet, he could still project his own thoughts.
“Ha ha ha! Are you saying that you can enter Atlantis? I can already tell you that you have no chance. Forget about the defense within Atlantis, you won’t even be able to break free from me.”
As he spoke, he patted the azure steed he was on and said calmly, “This is one of the Sea God Riders’ steeds, the Ocean Pegasus. It can cover 1,000 miles in an instant! No matter how quick you are, you can’t beat the Ocean Pegasus!”
As if aware of its master’s praise, the huge pegasus raised its neck proudly.
Ocean Pegasus? Luo Yunyang stared disdainfully at the massive horse that seemed to ripple with power.
Then, he stopped chattering with Qiongsi and opened his attribute regulator.
Power: 20 (Fire: 8, Ice: 8, Wood: 0.601)
Mind: 5 (Fire: 0.5)
Constitution: 15 (Dragon Blood: 10, Golden Body: 0.185, Fire: 0.568, Ice: 0.568, Wood: 0.47)
True Intent: 18.7 (Decimation: 9.9, Fire: 7.6, Space: 1.1)
Due to time constraints, Luo Yunyang still hadn’t refined the benefits of his bloodline. However, his awakening at the Luo Family Ancestral Grounds had made his Constitution rise greatly.
The figures of his Constitution had turned silver and it had reached 15 points. Luo Yunyang already knew how he would benefit from this.
After hesitating for a bit, he transferred the majority of his attribute points from his Constitution and True Intent to his Speed.
One silver point equaled 1,000 ordinary points!
Thus, Luo Yunyang’s Speed Attribute reached 40,000 points. As soon as these 40,000 points appeared, they immediately became 40 silver points.
After completing this conversion, Luo Yunyang glanced at Murat and told her, “I will be taking a look around Atlantis. You just wait here for me!”
As he said that, he flashed a strange smile at Qiongsi. “Today, we shall see whether your Ocean Pegasus is faster than me!”
Although Qiongsi could sense that Luo Yunyang was very different, he couldn’t pinpoint exactly how. As one of the three Great Sea God Riders, he had a lot of confidence in his steed.
Even though Luo Yunyang was also very quick, he definitely had no way of competing with the Ocean Pegasus. This was a fact he couldn’t ignore.
“Don’t you humans say that it’s not over ’til it’s over? Bring it on then! I shall let you admit defeat!”
Qiongsi tapped his heels against his steed softly, preparing himself to chase Luo Yunyang when he rushed away.
Deep down, Murat didn’t have a good feeling about this competition between Luo Yunyang and Qiongsi’s steed. Although Luo Yunyang was really fast, Murat had experienced the Ocean Pegasus’ speed first-hand.
Even though she wasn’t slow herself, she’d had no way of beating the Ocean Pegasus, which could surpass her a few times in just the blink of an eye.
It would be simply impossible for Luo Yunyang to outrun the Ocean Pegasus and enter Atlantis.
However, Martial God Luo Kai hadn’t showed up, so it seemed like this was humanity’s only choice amid this massive suppression.
The battle between Luo Yunyang and Qiongsi was still being broadcasted in Daxing Hall, as Atlantis wanted to quell any intent the humans had of resisting.
“Ha ha! This is the human race’s second strongest person? His ability to brag sure is very impressive!” lead emissary Laitehayin said mockingly.
The three other emissaries guffawed. They were all elites of Atlantis, so they knew all about the Ocean Pegasus. They definitely didn’t believe that there was a human that could compare speed-wise to the Ocean Pegasus.
Lu Qubing, Jin Zaitian and everyone else had grave expressions on their faces. Although they had never seen the Ocean Pegasus’ true speed, they could sense that the Atlanteans weren’t happy for nothing.
Their confidence implied that the Ocean Pegasus was extraordinary.
However, its speed in the ocean was limited. Could Luo Yunyang’s speed really break through that limit?
“Hey, this is your warning. I am setting off!” Luo Yunyang beamed as he glanced at Qiongsi. Just as he was about to take a step, Qiongsi chuckled. “You are going nowhere.”
The two of them seemed to have bet the outcome of this battle on speed. However, when two powers were trying to intimidate one another, the best way to display one’s might was by using weapons that could cause the most damage to the other party. For example, the massive waves that Atlantis had created had threatened to come crashing down on the Da Alliance.
This was the position the Da Alliance had found itself in even before the negotiation had begun. The reason the Da Alliance didn’t have any bargaining power was because their taboo weapons wouldn’t have any effect on Atlantis.
If taboo weapons had been able to strike Atlantis, then even though the Da Alliance was still weak force-wise, they could have discussed on equal terms.
What Luo Yunyang wanted to do now was intimidate the other side.
After taking a step, he had already disappeared. At least, no one could see any traces of him on the large electronic screen anymore.
Only the Ocean Pegasus and Qionsi remained static on the surging waves.
They were actually so still that it seemed as though time had stopped.
When he saw the unmoving Sea God Rider, Laitehayin said confidently, “When the image changes, I believe we will see our people stopping yours!”
Quite a number of people were staring at the unmoving image incredulously. Even Jin Zaitian thought that the screen was lagging.
Otherwise, how could that rider and the Ocean Pegasus be totally still?
