In the direction of the Holy Zhi Palace, even those big figures were a bit shocked. They clearly didn’t think Ye Futian could reach this step.
So many prides from all over the Barren State had come for the Holy Road. The List of Perfection wasn’t exactly the best of the best in the Barren State, because there were still people above the realm. But they were definitely the best of those in the lower Noble Plane.
The three that were left had quite interesting planes.
Huang Jiuge had the highest cultivation with the Grade seven Noble Plane. Bai Ze was a Grade eight Noble. Ye Futian was a Grade nine Noble.
Each one was in a different plane. Ye Futian was the lowest, but he’d fought the entire way to Huang Jiuge and Bai Ze. This was definitely shocking. Many big figures were already wondering if they could get Ye Futian to be their own disciple. With his potential, he would definitely be in the Barren Sky Ranking in the future.
Elder Ning was extremely uncomfortable. Seeing Ye Futian at this step made him realize that no one could stop Ye Futian from entering the Holy Zhi Palace. As long as he was willing, any headmaster would accept him. In this case, it would be hard to take revenge for Ning Huang and kill Ye Futian.
Ye Futian and Yu Sheng had to abilities to travel the Holy Road, but Ning Huang had provoked him. The consequences were predictable.
At this moment, Ye Futian walked to his spot and stood there quietly. Instead of continuing to challenge, he looked in Bai Ze’s direction. None of the remaining three stepped out. Bai Ze smiled suddenly. Was Ye Futian copying him? But did he even qualify to do so?
Raising his head, Bai Ze looked towards the steps and said, “Senior, since there are only three left, why don’t we fight together?”
Hearing his words, everyone was surprised and stared hard at him. How confident was he in his own abilities? If the three fought at the same time and one was stronger than the other two, it would be two against one. Judging by Bai Ze’s arrogance, he must have thought that he was the strongest. Since he thought this and dared to say those words, did this mean that he wasn’t intimidated by Ye Futian and Huang Jiuge partnering up?
Was Bai Ze confident in fighting the other two of the List of Perfection? The elder on the stairs gazed at Huang Jiuge and Ye Futian. “What do you two think?” he asked.
“I have no objections.” Huang Jiuge’s voice was calm. Since Bai Ze had suggested it, he would follow no matter what.
“What about you?” The elder looked at Ye Futian.
Ye Futian smiled and nodded. “Sure.”
The three all agreed.
“In that case, step onto the battle podium together. For the List of Perfection, there are no rules. Fight as you please,” the elder said calmly. This seemed to be setting them free.
Bai Ze, Huang Jiuge, and Ye Futian all stepped forward at once. They walked towards different spots on the battleground. Countless eyes fell on them, feeling shaken. Many hearts even sped up.
The List of Perfection hadn’t fought one-on-one. Instead, the three would fight together. How would the final battle be?
Who would be the first to be eliminated?
Who would be the first of this year’s Holy Zhi Palace battle?
Formless wind blew past the battleground, fluttering their robes.
Mu Zhiqiu’s indifferent eyes stared at the battleground and showed some rare emotions. She gazed at the most handsome one of the three and asked herself, Is he able to defeat Bai Ze and Huang Jiuge?
Qin Yin, Xie Wuji, and the others from Mount Jiuxian were all a bit nervous. They watched with bated breath.
Gu Yunxi, Long Mu, and the others inhaled sharply. Ye Futian had once swept through Divine Sky City domineeringly. Would he be able to create a miracle at the foot of the Holy Zhi Palace today?
On the silent battlefield, Bai Ze looked so handsome. He looked at Ye Futian and suddenly chuckled.
“You think that you can show off your pride by copying Huang Jiuge and I and not challenging voluntarily?” Bai Ze mocked. “Pride needs abilities as a foundation. A clown like you can only make a fool out of yourself.”
“You didn’t fight in the top ten battles. Why am I making a fool out of myself by standing here?” Ye Futian asked Bai Ze.
“Because some people don’t need to fight. They only need to stand there and people will recognize them. Yet others will only be seen as a challenger, even if he fought his way here, no matter if he voluntarily challenged or not.” Bai Ze stared at Ye Futian. “Do you understand?”
Ye Futian’s eyes flashed. Then he nodded. “You’re right.”
Bai Ze’s words were indeed correct.
“But there’s something you don’t understand yet,” Ye Futian continued.
“Really?” Bai Ze smiled thinly.
“You’ll see soon,” Ye Futian said.
Bai Ze laughed. “I’m excited, but first, you’ll understand just how far apart we are.”
The moment he finished, his eyes turned dark gray. Horrible spiritual energy shot out from his gray eyes. The vast space was instantly filled with some terrible dark gray air current. Spiritual Qi flowed in reverse and the world turned gray. Those eyes pierced into Ye Futian’s mind.
At that moment, Ye Futian seemed to see Bai Ze standing right before him. In his mind, Bai Ze had turned into a giant. He reached out and his spiritual energy pressed down, about to squash Ye Futian.
This was the Eye of Devastation.
Countless eyes fell upon the battlefield. Sensing the chaotic space, they clearly understood that Bai Ze had already attacked. How could Ye Futian take Bai Ze’s Eye of Devastation?
However, a starry world had appeared in Ye Futian’s world. The sun, moon, and stars hung high in the sky. An extremely divine force was guarding it. When the huge handprint descended, it released sacred light that blocked the invasive spiritual energy attack.
Bai Ze’s spiritual energy could even attack Ximen Yan directly, so he was obviously very strong. Ye Futian naturally had to protect his mind well.
“Your defense is actually this strong? It’s a bit unexpected, but as long as you’re within my territory, how can you fight back?” Bai Ze asked coldly. Impossibly heavy might weighed down on Ye Futian. Afterward, a huge palm appeared in the sky. It grabbed at Ye Futian.
The Spiritual Qi in the world roared. Ye Futian wanted to attack using a spell, but all the Spiritual Qi seemed to be restricted. It was hard to be gathered into a spell. Ye Futian had to use the power within his body. Not being able to resonate with the Spiritual Qi in the environment drastically reduced a sorcerer’s powers.
“Trying to use a spell in my eyes’ territory Are you dreaming?” Bai Ze mocked. He may have been in the List of Perfection, but he hadn’t fought in any of the top ten battles. He’d never showed his true abilities. No one had been enough to make him go full-out.
Thus, no one knew just how powerful Bai Ze was until now.
Releasing the golden Roc life spirit, Ye Futian flashed. He punched powerfully, activating the Spiritual Qi within him. A golden Roc seemed to burst from his fist, landing on the huge handprint.
Boom The handprint shattered and Ye Futian was driven back. He looked up in the sky. The more clearly he saw it, the more he could feel the pressure within this space.
So powerful. Countless hearts quivered. Even though Ye Futian had displayed shocking combat ability earlier, he probably would still lose against Bai Ze.
The second young lord of the White Cloud City had only released one power to make everyone feel despair.
Huang Jiuge stood to the side. He didn’t rush to attack. Instead, he just watched Bai Ze and Ye Futian’s fight. A pure sorcerer would lose pathetically against Bai Ze.
Thud. Ye Futian stepped out. His golden wings glimmered and he shot forward in the air, going straight for Bai Ze. Even if he didn’t use spells, his physical body was still extremely powerful.
“Want a close-distance fight?” Bai Ze looked at him mockingly. He waved a half and instantly gathered Spiritual Qi to cast a spell. Endless thunder chains flew towards Ye Futian, blocking his incoming path.
The golden Roc cut a beautiful arc in the sky. The Spiritual Qi inside it lay on its wings. Ye Futian flew forward like a divine bird. He shot through the spells, going straight for Bai Ze.
“Hmph.” Bai Ze huffed coldly. Dazzling gold light flashed before him, transforming into a huge golden image. It glistened before him. All metal elemental Spiritual Qi gathered wildly before him. The golden image dazzled, cutting the air apart.
Boom. Ye Futian’s fist landed squarely on the image. It cracked but didn’t shatter. It continued to shine blindingly. Spiritual Qi fell down, mending the cracks.
Bai Ze of the White Cloud City didn’t only have the Eye of Devastation.
Bai Luli was known as the strongest genius of the Barren State. He was in the top ten of the Barren Sky Ranking and was skilled in many abilities. Like his brother, Bai Ze must have learned a lot too.
Ye Futian produced a golden staff. His roc-like body passed through the sky and horrible power gathered towards it. Once again, he shot towards the curtain of gold light like lightning. He brought down his golden staff. With a crisp sound, the gold light curtain broke.
In front of Ye Futian, endless Spiritual Qi dropped down around Bai Ze at that moment. It felt like some law descended into the image floating before Bai Ze. The long image was like an inscription. It devoured the Spiritual Qi in the world and gradually formed a special image. Shocking power emanated from it.
“Air Inscription.” Ye Futian’s heart trembled. He’d once used this power before, but he couldn’t carve so many inscriptions like Bai Ze and use it in battle. This required absolute control over the Spiritual Qi in the surroundings!
“Now do you know why I want your woman?” Bai Ze sent the message to Ye Futian telepathically. A Divine Spiritual Sorcerer could help greatly with his cultivation!
