Chapter 458: The Battle Across Spatial Dimensions
In front of Yi Yun, Shen Tu Nantian slowly walked towards him. His facial expression was the sinister and ruthless one that Yi Yun was familiar with.
Every step he took was abound with murderous intent. It was extremely oppressive.
Yi Yun held his breath as he clenched the Blood Red Lotus in his hands tightly.
“Haha! You still want to struggle?” Shen Tu Nantian unsheathed a sword and pointed the tip right at Yi Yun’s eyes. “Yi Yun, I have been waiting for this opportunity for a long time. I have finally waited for this day. I will cripple you of your martial arts and imprison you. I’ll use the most merciless techniques in this world to torture you!”
One of Yi Yun’s eyebrow ticked up. He was extremely sharp with his perception. He realized that the Shen Tu Nantian in front of him may be the same in terms of speech and looks to the one in his memory, but… he was lacking something. That was, he was lacking the real Shen Tu Nantian’s strength.
The “Shen Tu Nantian” in front of him may be emitting tremendous murderous intent and aura, but his strength could be barely estimated by Yi Yun. He was much weaker than real Shen Tu Nantian.
This was just an illusion?
This thought flashed past Yi Yun’s mind. He opened his energy vision and with that, he realized that the person in front of him wasn’t human, he was a figure of light formed completely from energy.
“So this is the second trial’s test.”
The Great Empress mystic realm did not have memory of Shen Tu Nantian, so the only explanation was that the Great Empress mystic realm had used Yi Yun’s memories to form a phantom image of Shen Tu Nantian.
The person who appeared in this trial was the cultivator’s mental demon!
Although Shen Tu Nantian was not considered to be a mental demon of Yi Yun, Yi Yun had to admit that back in the Tai Ah Divine Kingdom, everything that Shen Tu Nantian did to Jiang Xiaorou and to him made him feel tremendous hate for Shen Tu Nantian. Back then, he had sworn to kill Shen Tu Nantian.
And Shen Tu Nantian’s continuous threats of crippling Yi Yun’s cultivation and imprisoning him to torture him was quite a terrifying matter.
In the energy vision, the phantom Shen Tu Nantian had no weaknesses. Yi Yun could not use any tricks because this was a battle based on actual skill.
Yi Yun did not know the profoundness of the Great Empress mystic realm. He was not sure if it could display a portion of Shen Tu Nantian’s real strength. If it could, Yi Yun wanted to see what skills Shen Tu Nantian had.
At this moment, the phantom Shen Tu Nantian gave off a sinister smile. And the next moment, he disappeared.
His was extremely fast. He stabbed with his sword right at Yi Yun’s Dantian!
Shen Tu Nantian’s attack contained a vibrative power. Once he successfully stabbed, Yi Yun’s Dantian would definitely explode. One strike would cripple his cultivation.
Yi Yun did not know what would happen in real life if his cultivation was crippled in the illusion. He did not dare take the risk. He treated this illusion realm’s battle as a real fight with Shen Tu Nantian. Besides, his opponent’s strength far exceeded his. This meant that he could not go easy at all.
Behind Yi Yun, Radiant Sun Qi exploded, forming the Tang Valley’s phantom image. Radiant Sun Qi was injected into the Blood Red Lotus in his hand!
The Blood Red Lotus had tasted the blood of countless numbers of people, so it emitted a thick blood Qi to it. Blood was in itself a Yang-elemental object, so this blood Qi mixed with the pure Yang Qi only complemented one another.
Slashing his saber, a red wave appeared. In the gray space, a blood Sun appeared out of nowhere!
Shen Tu Nantian’s sword beam was torn apart. The red saber beam from Yi Yun did not lose its momentum. It pierced straight into Shen Tu Nantian’s body.
Saber Truth’s 32 Words – Killing At Its Core!
After a long period of training, Yi Yun’s had achieved mastery in the insight gained from the saber tomb. It was perfectly harmonious with his martial Dao.
Besides, using Killing At Its Core with the Blood Red Lotus made the attack even more powerful with the Blood Red Lotus’s killing intent’s support.
Saber beams flashed wantonly as Shen Tu Nantian’s body was slashed. No blood flowed out from his wounds, but replacing blood were numerous Yuan Qi light dots.
Shen Tu Nantian’s body was thrown backwards by a few hundred feet. Even though his body had been penetrated by the saber beam, he still seemed fine.
“Wo! Wo! Wo!”
Heaven Earth Yuan Qi gathered from Shen Tu Nantian’s surroundings, flowing straight into his body.
With the energy restoring him, Shen Tu Nantian’s wounds quickly recovered. He looked at Yi Yun with a cold and sinister smile.
“Yi Yun, your attack was too weak. You are destined to die!”
Shen Tu Nantian walked towards Yi Yun with his sword in hand. The expression and words made Yi Yun have an impression that the person in front of him was the real Shen Tu Nantian.
Yi Yun took a deep breath and touched his interspatial ring with one hand. An azure sword appeared in Yi Yun’s hand. It was… Shen Tu Nantian’s sword!
Seeing this sword, Shen Tu Nantian’s expression changed as his killing intent grew more intense!
“That’s my sword!”
Shen Tu Nantian said deeply as if he was provoked.
Seeing Shen Tu Nantian’s expression, Yi Yun was secretly alarmed. Everything in the illusion realm was too realistic.
As Yi Yun was having a life and death battle with Shen Tu Nantian in the illusion realm. In another door of light, Shen Tu Nantian was also undergoing his own test.
He was in a similar independent space. It was also a boundless gray land.
However, in this test, the scene was completely different.
Standing in front of Shen Tu Nantian was a youth dressed in azure clothes. He was holding an azure sword in his hands, with a mocking smile on his face.
This youth had the looks of Yi Yun.
Yi Yun was Shen Tu Nantian’s nightmare!
“That’s my sword!”
Shen Tu Nantian’s eyes were blood red. Even though he knew it was a test in an illusion realm, he could not suppress the anger in his heart when he saw Yi Yun attacking him with a sword that previously belonged to him.
“So what if it’s your sword? It is mine now.” An evil curl appeared by the corners of Yi Yun’s mouth. He flicked the sword’s shaft lightly, issuing a “Weng” sound. It sounded like a dragon’s roar.
“This sword is not bad. I will use your sword to stab you in the heart. But… killing you just like that would be too easy on you. Before that, I will slowly torture you. Just like after the relic trial in the Lin family’s dungeon. However, back then, I needed to use a trash like you to exchange for the Great Empress mystic realm’s information, so I only beat you up brutally and fed you a bit of the Seven Noxious Divine Yin Pill. I was too easy on you…”
“The next time, I will cut all your body’s meridians and let you have a taste of death by dismembering and destroy your heart.”
“To think a trash like you wants to kill my sister and make her into an elixir? My sister is the Desolate race’s royal family’s Successor. Why didn’t you piss a pool of water to see what you look like? You are ridiculous!”
“And you wanted to marry Lin Xintong? Lin Xintong is a proud daughter of Heaven and would be a peerless Great Empress in the future. As for you, after you were partially crippled by me, you were picked up by the Shen Tu family clan like a piece of trash. Do you think you are worthy as a worthless dog? You are a toad lusting after a swan’s flesh! Lin Xintong will eventually be mine. Her pure Yin body’s primordial Yin will also belong to me. Hahahaha!”
Yi Yun’s recklessly laughed and his face was full of mockery. He looked at Shen Tu Nantian as if he was a previously vanquished opponent. This gaze of his pierced through Shen Tu Nantian, making him feel pain. With his high stature, he had been **** so badly by a bumpkin from the Backwater East.
Shen Tu Nantian’s face twitched as veins began protruding on his forehead one by one. Even if whatever the Yi Yun in front of him said was actually his own imagination, he was now completely lost in the illusion. He had fallen in too deep.
The Great Empress mystic realm’s illusion realm was mysterious in every aspect. Just a slight loss of focus would result in people forgetting that they were in an illusion. They would succumb to their mental demons, thinking that it was reality.
Shen Tu Nantian roared loudly with his eyes red. Behind him, auspicious looking light of all colors condensed behind him.
These rainbow-colored lights condensed into phantom images. There was a lush grassland with a spirit tree growing on it. A spring then appeared in front of the spirit tree.
And beside the spring, a figure wearing a green gown appeared. He looked like a scholar.
This was Shen Tu Nantian’s Aspect Totem. It was called Transcendent Immortal Paradise!
Back at the Lin family’s Desolate Heaven technique tea session, Shen Tu Nantian had conjured his Aspect Totem at the critical moment when he was displaying his ancient Desolate Heaven technique.
Back then, the scholar dressed in green held a folding fan. He was reciting poems and drawing pictures in that immortal paradise. He looked like a successful scholar who had accomplished a lot at a young age.
But this time, he looked completely different. The scholar’s face was full of sinisterness and hideousness. His body was covered in black gas. It did not match the immortal paradise around him!
This was no scholar, it was a ferocious ghost that had possessed the scholar!
Yi Yun was Shen Tu Nantian’s mental demon. The experiences in the Lin family’s dungeon was the greatest ridicule Shen Tu Nantian had ever experienced in his life!
Shen Tu Nantian could hardly maintain his clearness of mind in an illusion with Yi Yun. As such, his Aspect Totem had also changed!
