Chapter 1393: Turning the Situation Around
Translator: CKtalon Editor: CKtalon
"I must recognize that you are also a genius, a genius that enjoys an immense light from providence, but in the end you are destined to be a set of bones under my feet."
As Myriad God Patriarch spoke, he continued tightening the spatial array formation.
This junior was once his mental demon. To him, Yi Yun was someone he had to take very seriously. Even though Yi Yun was firmly in his grasp, he did not go easy at all.
He had heard of many geniuses like Yi Yun who were favored by providence. Enemies of such geniuses would usually be faced with various obstacles. For example, the founder of a mighty empire would encounter countless assassinations and plots against them. But anyone that thought to harm them only ended up dead.
Myriad God Patriarch believed he too was favored by providence. If he killed Yi Yun, he could take the light that shone on Yi Yun for himself. It was even possible for him to become a Godly Monarch in the future.
With a humming sound, a bone sword appeared in Myriad God Patriarch's hand.
The bone sword was entirely white in color and its design was strange. The sharp edge was like a claw and the blade had a curvature. It suffused a rich deathly aura.
"If you were to be killed by this Bone Corrosion Sword, not only would all your flesh rot away, even your lifeblood would be fully absorbed. Your soul would be corroded by the cadaveric aura and you would finally become my slave." Myriad God Patriarch injected his Yuan Qi into the Bone Corrosion Sword as his blade trembled in response. It let out an indescribably sinister sound that was like something from hell itself.
Following that, Myriad God Patriarch walked towards Yi Yun. The Bone Corrosion Sword emitted a cold white light as he held it high up, aiming straight at Yi Yun's head before cleaving down.
At that moment, Yi Yun sensed an extremely strong sense of danger. It was similar or even more intense than the pressing danger he experienced back when he was being pursued by the Black-armored Demon God in the Tian Yuan World.
Back then, Yi Yun still had a chance of escaping, but now all his energy was sealed. He could not use his Yuan Qi and his body was confined spatially, preventing him from even moving. All he could do was watch helplessly as the sword came down at him.
However, Myriad God Patriarch did not see despair or horror on Yi Yun's face. Instead, it was a look of still serenity.
Before he could even wonder why, Myriad God Patriarch suddenly sensed an extremely strong threat coming from behind him!
Myriad God Patriarch turned around suddenly and cleaved with his sword.
The sword's might was terrifying, something that Myriad God Patriarch believed was enough to tear Yi Yun apart. Regardless of what the threat behind him was, his sword was completely capable of withstanding it.
However, Myriad God Patriarch never expected that when his sword beam struck the black light, it would be instantly engulfed upon contact. The black light continued coming at him.
Myriad God Patriarch's protective Yuan Qi was as strong as paper against the black light. It was instantly shattered, but Myriad God Patriarch was able to prevent his vital spots from being struck. Only his shoulder had been penetrated.
A terrifying aura immediately surged wantonly through Myriad God Patriarch's meridians. His wound bled profusely as a black mist lingered around it. It was like a mini black hole.
And at that moment, more black beams were being shot out.
It was the array formation! The valley's killing array had been triggered!
As Myriad God Patriarch dodged the array beams, he saw a seven-colored snake blazing around the valley's array formation like a seven-colored meteor.
"What is that!?"
Myriad God Patriarch immediately knew that it was the seven-colored snake that had triggered the array formation. And the snake was definitely related to Yi Yun.
Yi Yun had hidden himself in order to lure him into the killing array. However, he had detected Yi Yun's location ahead of time.
He had then sealed Yi Yun, severing any routes of escape for Yi Yun. Yi Yun was given no chance to pull any tricks. Little did he know that Yi Yun had left a tiny snake outside as a contingency.
To make matters worse, Myriad God Patriarch also sensed that his spatial array had been destroyed by the black beams, freeing Yi Yun.
Each one of the black beams that filled the sky possessed the ability to cause terrifying damage.
Yi Yun had instructed the Nine Transformations Celestial Silkworm to trigger the array formation so as to have the stone monuments open their eyes and fire their beams, but he never expected the Nine Transformations Celestial Silkworm to trigger so many at once.
"Come back now! Dude, I was almost made into a sieve!"
The black beams attacked without any discrimination. Under such an intense barrage of attacks, Yi Yun was also forced into an awkward predicament. Thankfully, he was skilled in the Destruction laws and was able to handle them a little better than Myriad God Patriarch. He immediately beckoned for the Nine Transformations Celestial Silkworm's return and summoned the Ascending Dragon Cauldron.
Yi Yun had no chance of victory against Myriad God Patriarch. All he could do was hide in the Ascending Dragon Cauldron.
Myriad God Patriarch's eyes suffused redness. He never expected that despite being cautious and thorough, he would still fall for Yi Yun's schemes!
He charged towards Yi Yun but the black beams did not cease. He was forced to turn around to parry them.
Myriad God Patriarch watched helplessly as Yi Yun entered the Ascending Dragon Cauldron. As for the Ascending Dragon Cauldron, it remained unharmed despite being bombarded by the black beams!
Myriad God Patriarch's hate raged inside him like a tidal wave. Yi Yun was clearly a weakling who could only run from him, but still he suffered repeatedly at Yi Yun's hands.
At that moment, Yi Yun's voice sounded from the Ascending Dragon Cauldron.
"Old Fellow, it's best you take care of yourself first."
As that was said, beads were suddenly thrown out from the Ascending Dragon Cauldron by Yi Yun. Myriad God Patriarch focused his eyes on them and noticed that they were Thunderclap Explosive Firebeads!
A Thunderclap Explosive Firebead was an array bead used to kill enemies. Its offensive strength was nothing to speak of. It was not even enough to deal with Dao Palace realm warriors. Yi Yun had obtained them from the interspatial ring of a warrior he killed. The beads were completely useless to him and he had nearly thrown them away. But now, they were being put to full use.
Dozens of Thunderclap Explosive Firebead exploded simultaneously!
The entire space was deluged by a sea of flames. Yi Yun did not hold any hopes that the beads would do a thing to Myriad God Patriarch. He had thrown the Thunderclap Explosive Firebeads straight at the Still Destruction Killing Array. The Thunderclap Explosive Firebead's flames and lightning inundated the blood-colored stone monuments, activating the killing array once again!
Cha! Cha! Cha!
The twelve stone monuments began shooting out black Still Destruction beams of light crazily! The number of beams shot out was more than ten times the number caused by the Nine Transformations Celestial Silkworm!
As for Myriad God Patriarch, he was not at his best. He was already injured and under the assault of the black beams, he almost had a mental breakdown.
There was just too many! He could not deal with them at all!
As for Yi Yun, he was hiding in the Ascending Dragon Cauldron. He could hear the clamorous clangs of the beams striking the Ascending Dragon Cauldron. Even the Ascending Dragon Cauldron shook forcefully under the black beam storm.
Of course, these were already extremely satisfying to Yi Yun. He used a wisp of his perception to study the situation outside the Ascending Dragon Cauldron.
He saw Myriad God Patriarch dodging amid the black beams, looking pathetic.
Realizing how nasty Yi Yun was, Myriad God Patriarch felt a surge of blood flow backwards to his head.
His hair had been burnt off by a black beam. His remaining hair scattered down. He looked terrible.
What were these black beams!?
Myriad God Patriarch was appalled by the black beams. He did not know where he was, nor did he know who the person who had set up the array formation was.
The black beams were not something he could fully defend against even at his peak. Even the average Divine Lord would perish under the black beams' assault!
How did a mere array formation possess such terrifying power?
But Myriad God Patriarch did not have the luxury of time to think it through. The overwhelming black beams brought with them grave killing intent. Myriad God Patriarch had no time to tend to his injuries. He didn't even have time to take a breath.
"Yi Yun!" Myriad God Patriarch let out an angry bellow. His outer calf had been penetrated by a black beam. Flesh the size of a palm had vanished instantly, replaced by nothingness!
Feeling the excruciating pain in his calf, Myriad God Patriarch felt a chill down his back. The black beams contained terrifying Still Destruction laws which could destroy everything they touched!
And at that moment, Yi Yun was sitting inside the cauldron while the Nine Transformations Celestial Silkworm lay in front of him.
He could sense that although Myriad God Patriarch was finding it difficult to defend against the black beams, it was unlikely that he would really die.
The black beams could not continue ceaselessly. Soon, they would stop.
"This darn bastard managed to chase me here. Tomorrow, he might be able to keep chasing me to another area. I can't feel at ease as long as he is alive. Now that he is at his weakest, I have to take this chance to kill him once and for all!"
Yi Yun's eyes blazed with killing intent. He was bent on killing Myriad God Patriarch after being threatened twice by the old bastard!
If he were to allow Myriad God Patriarch to leave safely, Myriad God Patriarch would quickly recover from his injuries. He would only come back stronger than he was now. When that happened, he would only prove more dangerous for Yi Yun.
The best method to deal with an enemy was to ensure that he was dead!
"Little Nine, lend me some of your blood!" Yi Yun looked at the Nine Transformations Celestial Silkworm and asked.
Upon hearing that its blood was needed, the Nine Transformations Celestial Silkworm immediately shrinked its head back. However, it was also reasonable. It knew that the enemy outside was very dangerous and that Yi Yun was no match for him.
After a moment of hesitation, the Nine Transformations Celestial Silkworm steeled its mind and made its decision. It nodded its tiny head as though it was looking at death calmly in the face.
Upon seeing this, Yi Yun was at a loss whether to laugh or cry. "Are you serious? I'm just borrowing a bit of your blood and you look as though I'm taking your life. Didn't I take some of your blood in the past? When did I not repay it?"
Previously, Yi Yun had fed the fire seed he had obtained from the Nine Li Magus Empire to the Nine Transformations Celestial Silkworm. Yi Yun was definitely not stingy towards such a natural treasure.
Although extracting the blood of the Nine Transformations Celestial Silkworm harmed the little fellow's lifeblood, it would only have its lifeblood restored and strengthened after eating more treasures. To the Nine Transformations Celestial Silkworm, there were many benefits in following Yi Yun. It would definitely experience growth faster than if it were to go it alone.
Yi Yun gently squeezed the Nine Transformations Celestial Silkworm's body and extracted its blood. It was hard to do, as the little fellow looked like it was suffering a huge grievance as it clenched its teeth and did not make a sound.
Only when Yi Yun promised it that he would feed him with even more treasured herbs did the little fellow beam.
After extracting a few drops of the Nine Transformations Celestial Silkworm's blood, Yi Yun infused it straight into his body.
Instantly, the Dragon Emperor bloodline in him boiled.
