Chapter 632: Snake Bones
Between the representatives of the Desolate race and the Blood Moon, one was the Desolate race’s new Desolate Queen, while the other was a mysterious Reincarnator. For the two women to meet in the Soul Tomb, there was no point speaking further, they could only battle.
“Successor, let me test her out.”
At this moment, Chen Fei requested while standing beside Jiang Xiaorou.
The Desolate race did not have any idea of the powers of the Reincarnators.
The Desolate race only knew the Blood Moon had the “Heavenly Dao Reincarnation Grand Technique”, and that people who cultivated in this cultivation technique were able to reincarnate several times. As for who was a Reincarnator? They did not know.
Every reincarnation of the Blood Moon’s Reincarnators were kept a secret. Over the tens of millions of years, there were large periods of time when the Blood Moon was just conserving its strength, so there would only be one or two Reincarnators who stepped foot on the world. There might even be times when there were none.
These Reincarnators were very weak when they were just born. They needed to cultivate from the beginning, and in their childhood, an adult at the Purple Blood realm would be able to easily kill them. If they were to die at that time, it would be quite a loss.
Hence, in the millions of years of Blood Moon dormancy, every Reincarnator would keep a low profile. Many Reincarnators even carried on staying reserved even when their cultivation succeeding in reaching a powerful stage, causing them to be the top figure in the Tian Yuan world. The Desolate race had no way of knowing who was a Reincarnator, and these Reincarnators’ true strength was very mysterious. Even amongst the Reincarnators, they did not know each others’ hidden cards and limits.
Under such a situation, Jiang Xiaorou battling Sheji was no doubt quite risky.
With Chen Fei fighting first, he could help Jiang Xiaorou probe Sheji’s strength. At the same time, he also transmitted his voice to get the “Skyfox” members to prepare a large battle formation.
Any single “Skyfox” member alone had typical combat ability, but when in a large battle formation, their combat ability would be extraordinary. If it was possible, Chen Fei wanted to attempt at killing the witch girl Sheji in one swift attack.
However, Jiang Xiaorou shook her head and transmitted her voice. “Chen Fei, stand down. She definitely has something to fall back on for her to dare appear here. How can she be easily killed by all of you? As for all of you, temporarily don’t do anything, and just be alert of the surroundings. I feel that…there is someone near to Sheji…”
“I also don’t hope on really restraining Sheji. I just want to see what strength Reincarnators have in their youth.”
Jiang Xiaorou was dressed in a long red robe and her eyes burned with fighting spirit. It was completely different from the young lady from the Cloud Wilderness ten years ago.
Although Sheji could not hear Jiang Xiaorou’s voice transmission, she could roughly guess what Jiang Xiaorou had said to Chen Fei.
As she smiled seductively, she removed the veil that obscured her face.
Under the veil was an extremely charming and amorous face. There was a faint mole at the corner of her mouth, giving her that additional touch of charm.
“Let me test the present era’s Desolate Queen’s strength.” Sheji lightly laughed. And at that moment, the gigantic snake bones beneath her began trembling. With the resonating sounds, the snake bones that had been buried underground for probably tens of thousands of years emerged out from the ground.
With two consecutive pings, the empty eye sockets of the snake bones suddenly burned with two faint green flames, as if they were irises.
The Desolate race’s elites subconsciously took a few steps back when they saw this. In the Soul Tomb, the most terrifying thing was the evil Yin Qi, especially the zombie kings sleeping within here for tens of thousands of years.
And now, Sheji was able to control one of the zombie bones in the Soul Tomb?
Jiang Xiaorou cracked her whip while sending it out. Her expression remained unchanged. On the whip, light condensed together, forming an azure phoenix.
The phoenix spread its wings and charged straight at the snake bones.
The gigantic snake roared, spitting out large amounts of intense green flames. The moment the azure phoenix entered the flames, its wings tore through the flames like its wings were blades.
“Oh?” Sheji’s eyes lit up and immediately gave a seductive laugh. As she flicked her ten fingers, about a dozen of bone spikes flew forward.
These bone spikes sparkled with a blinding frost light, as they whistled through the air, stabbing the phoenix’s body.
“Si!” The phoenix’s wings shook, completely brushing the bone spikes away. Following that, it continued in its attack at Sheji.
Against this scene, Sheji was in no way flustered.
The corners of her mouth curled up, revealing a charming smile. “Explode!”
With her saying that, the bone spikes that were being scattered to the ground exploded, forming pumes of green smoke.
The phoenix was enveloped by the smoke and quickly corroded.
The glimmer in Jiang Xiaorou’s eyes dimmed, and as she brandished her whip, emitting light flashes while dissipating the toxic smoke around her.
At this moment, Sheji’s eyes flashed serious again. Pointing at the gigantic snake. “Go!”
Boom! The gigantic snake’s massive body moved like lightning and came coiling around Jiang Xiaorou.
Sheji revealed a sinister smile. She intended to take advantage of the moment when Jiang Xiaorou was diverted of her attention when the phoenix was injured. By using the snake to coil Jiang Xiaorou, she would then be squeezed to her death.
After that beautiful figure of hers was squeezed into meat pulp, she wanted to know if the people from the Desolate race would still look at that meat pulp like she was still some goddess.
Seeing this scene, Chen Fei and the other “Skyfox” members turned worried. “Successor, be careful!”
Jiang Xiaorou’s soft body looked too frail compared to the ferocious white-boned gigantic snake.
The gigantic snake’s motions caused the mountains to vibrate. There were continuously rubble falling. The small ones were about the size of a fist, while the large ones were as big as a grinder.
The rubble all contained terrifying evil aura. It gave off a suppressing stifle.
The “Skyfox” members had no choice but to avoid or shatter those rubble. But amongst the falling avalanche, the red-dressed Jiang Xiaorou hovered motionlessly in the middle of the sky, being in the center of the gigantic snake’s coiled body.
Suddenly, she extended her hands slowly, causing her large sleeves to flutter in the air. It looked like she was going to be blown along with the wind.
A tone that sounded like it came from ancient times but exuded an air of mysterious wonder came out from between her lips. At the same time, it also seemed to be emitted from the wind around her, but at this moment, a trace of azure energy flow began to circulate around her body.
“Unnecessary tricks! Go! Kill her!” Sheji strengthened her control of the gigantic snake.
Even if Jiang Xiaorou had some other techniques, with the gigantic snake’s oppressive strength, she would definitely be injured!
However, at that instant, the azure energy was injected into the gigantic snake’s body, causing Jiang Xiaorou and the gigantic snake to connect.
The green flames that took the place of its eyes suddenly flickered. The gigantic snake that came with a formidable momentum seemed to be agitated by the azure energy, and immediately following that, its speed gradually decreased till it stopped.
Sheji was momentarily stunned. What was going on?
She continuously tried to take control of the gigantic snake, but to no avail. Its head only constantly shook, as if it was struggling.
Jiang Xiaorou flew before the gigantic snake. In front of the gigantic snake’s head, she looked extremely minute and weak, however, her aura was like the gigantic snake’s ancestor. It caused the gigantic snake to not even dare raise its ferocious head.
“What? This is…” It was not random for Sheji’s name to contain the word “She” (snake). She had the power to control snakes. With her understanding of the Spiritual Death laws, Sheji was able to even control snake bones by injecting her energy into it.
She never expected that it would suddenly turn ineffective today.
“Is it strange?” Jiang Xiaorou stretched out her hand to touch the gigantic snake’s head, while smiling at Sheji, “My race’s connection with desolate beasts is through the spiritual soul. This snake may be dead, but as it is buried within this Soul Tomb, its soul hasn’t dissipated after death. Although it has been so many years, the spiritual soul might have weakened a lot from when it was alive, but that is already sufficient for me.”
As Jiang Xiaorou spoke, she stepped onto the snake’s head. The snake’s body immediately trembled, as the green flames in its eye sockets burned faintly. It no longer resisted, on the contrary, it raised its head, lifting Jiang Xiaorou up.
Following that, the snake looked at Sheji with surging killing intent.
Upon seeing this scene, Sheji felt her heart go cold. This set of snake bones was not randomly chosen by her. In the past million years, she had once come to the Soul Tomb in one of her past reincarnation’s youth. She had particularly chosen this set of snake bones and refined it, but today, it had been easily robbed away by Jiang Xiaorou?
Even the members of the Desolate race were stunned with widened eyes, let alone Sheji. None of them could believe what had unfolded in front of their eyes.
Indeed, the Desolate race used their ability to connect with the spiritual soul to control desolate beasts, but…just with that tiny bit of lingering soul, she was able to control a desolate beast that had been dead for so many years?
This subverted what they had known all along. If it were them, they would not be able to control a desolate beast that recently died, let alone a desolate beast that had died so long ago.
Jiang Xiaorou’s control was heaven defying!
Seeing Jiang Xiaorou approach on the snake, Sheji was momentarily flustered. Her eyeballs subconsciously moved, looking towards a corner in the void.
This unobvious glance was noticed by Jiang Xiaorou’s acute eyes. Indeed, there was another person hiding here…
Faintly, Jiang Xiaorou had a feeling of being observed secretly.
“Interesting…really interesting. I originally thought that she was a Desolate race genius that has the ability to awake her ancient bloodline, but it seems that is not the only thing…”
“This sort of bloodline is really fascinating…”
A voice muttered to itself in the darkness. His aura was completely hidden within the darkness, making it difficult for Jiang Xiaorou to accurate pinpoint the person’s actual position.
