Eternal Sacred King - Chapter 1316 - The Oriole
Chapter 1316: The Oriole
Heavenly Secrets thought of something.
Purple Flame, the Master of Hellfire Hall who cultivated the Blood Refinement Fiend Sutra, tried to absorb the bloodlines of the battlefield to recover his blood qi essence but to no avail.
At that time, Heavenly Secrets was already puzzled.
He knew that Purple Flame had not cultivated the Blood Refinement Fiend Sutra to its peak.
However, it was definitely not to the point where he would fail in absorbing the bloodlines!
Initially, he wanted to step in secretly to prevent the bloodline refinement process of Purple Flame.
Unexpectedly, Purple Flame failed for some unknown reason and that saved him the trouble.
Now that he thought about it, coupled with the connection from the break of the spatial seal, Heavenly Secrets realized that another expert was hiding in Heaven and Earth Valley!
Furthermore, it was highly likely that the person was here for the same motive as him!
Suddenly, a roar sounded beside him!
“Heavenly Secrets, what are you hiding here for?!”
The shout was extremely loud and Heavenly Secrets was alarmed. He turned and slapped a cultivator on the chest, killing the latter instantly!
The cultivator had a lost expression and looked at Heavenly Secrets in disbelief. Even till his death, he did not know why the person before him would suddenly injure him.
The crowd dispersed.
“No, I killed the wrong person!”
Heavenly Secrets felt his scalp tingle.
It was clear that the cultivator who died earlier merely shouted because he was bewitched.
The mastermind had not appeared at all!
Heavenly Secrets retracted his smile with a grim expression.
He could not believe that as a cultivator of Enigma Palace, his movements were being led by the nose and he was in an unprecedented passive position!
All of a sudden!
Heavenly Secrets sensed something and felt a chill run down his spine, as though he was targeted by an extremely dangerous existence!
He Secrets turned around slowly and looked over.
On the battlefield far away, a tall and burly figure was speeding over with a saber. His white hair danced and his eyes were pitch-black with a murderous expression!
The Asura, Yan Beichen!
Initially, Yan Beichen could not discover Heavenly Secrets who was hidden in the crowd.
However, that sudden shout on the other side caught his attention.
Thereafter, Heavenly Secrets attacked violently and the chaotic crowd dispersed, allowing Yan Beichen to locate him with ease!
Initially, Yan Beichen was still hesitant about whether he should leave with Su Zimo.
Now that Heavenly Secrets was not far away, he no longer hesitated and charged forward with the Hatred Fiend Saber!
“Heavenly Secrets, let’s see where else you can hide. Die!”
Yan Beichen was like a resurrected fiend emperor as he strode forward with a murderous aura. In the blink of an eye, he arrived before Heavenly Secrets and slashed with his saber!
Heavenly Secrets waved his folding fan in reverse and blocked the Hatred Fiend Saber.
Sparks flew everywhere!
Heavenly Secrets’s arm sank.
Although the Asura who inherited the Hatred Sutra had just entered the Conjoint Body realm, there were not many people who could defend against him in terms of combat strength!
Heavenly Secrets believed that if it was a one-on-one fight, his capabilities were not weaker than God Han Ling and the Golden Crow Third Prince.
However, he still felt that things were extremely troublesome against Yan Beichen!
That was because Yan Beichen was a complete lunatic!
He was not afraid of death or injury. He was willing to endure a blow from Heavenly Secrets just so he could carve a bloody hole in the latter’s body!
In the blink of an eye, both parties exchanged more than ten blows.
Yan Beichen was fighting with his life in exchange for an internecine outcome!
Heavenly Secrets’s folding fan had once struck Yan Beichen heavily on the leg, crippling his left leg and breaking his tendons and bones.
However, as though he could not feel any pain, Yan Beichen’s expression turned increasingly ruthless and the hatred fiend qi around him intensified!
There was no way Heavenly Secrets knew that for Yan Beichen, the pain on his physical body was a mere fraction of the pain in his heart!
Pain on his body would only serve to lessen the pain in his heart slightly.
Heavenly Secrets’s cultivation had already reached the perfected Conjoint Body realm.
In terms of pure strength, he was even stronger than Yan Beichen.
However, after more than ten rounds, Heavenly Secrets truly did not want to fight anymore!
Although dozens of Yan Beichen’s bones were broken by Heavenly Secrets, he was still fearless and fought with a crippled leg.
Heavenly Secrets was also covered in injuries!
The most serious injury was a saber wound on his left abdomen.
Thankfully, he retreated in time. Otherwise, he would have been pierced by that attack!
As time passed by, the might of the Hatred Fiend Saber gradually revealed itself.
The hatred fiend qi could even taint and corrode an ancient Unique Treasure like the Mystic Magnet Mountain and seal the latter’s powers.
When the blade sliced through Heavenly Secrets’s wound, what sort of damage would the body receive with the remnant hatred fiend qi?
Heavenly Secrets could clearly see that the wounds on his body were already rotting!
“Asura, why are you looking for me instead of saving Desolate Martial?!”
Heavenly Secrets was enraged but he suppressed it forcefully and questioned in a deep voice.
“I’ll have you pay with your life!”
Yan Beichen said word by word. His gaze was ice-cold and seemed as though it could devour Heavenly Secrets alive!
Heavenly Secrets realized that it was impossible for him to break free from Yan Beichen easily.
If he were to run with his escape technique, he would naturally be able to shake off Yan Beichen. However, all his previous efforts of setting up this trap here would be wasted!
“Since that’s the case, I’ll send you down to reunite with that woman!”
A blood glint flashed through Heavenly Secrets’s eyes as he channeled his mental cultivation technique. His body seemed to have transformed into a gigantic black hole as he absorbed the rich bloodlines in the battlefield continuously!
Blood Refinement Fiend Sutra!
Heavenly Secrets also knew the Blood Refinement Fiend Sutra!
Furthermore, the Blood Refinement Fiend Sutra that he cultivated was clearly much stronger than the one released by Purple Flame!
Heavenly Secrets racked his brains and implicated many factions, including the Primordial Six Races and taboo, to make use of this fight for the Dharma Characteristic Ranking. In fact, even Dao Lord Desolate Martial was his chess piece in this shocking scheme… he wanted to absorb all the bloodlines here!
The more living beings that died in Heaven and Earth Valley and the richer their bloodlines were, the greater the benefits for him!
Therefore, when he saw Purple Flame channeling the Blood Refinement Fiend Sutra to absorb the bloodlines of this place, he naturally wanted to interrupt the latter.
That was equivalent to snatching food from his mouth!
Heavenly Secrets would not allow anyone to taint the bloodlines of this place!
Initially, he wanted to hide in the dark and waited for this battle to end before channeling his fiend technique to absorb and refine the bloodlines of this place.
But now, Yan Beichen was pushing him too hard and he couldn’t care less!
Heavenly Secrets had just absorbed a little of the bloodlines when his expression changed starkly!
His connection to the bloodlines on the ground was suddenly severed by an external force!
The mastermind had struck once again!
Suddenly, Heavenly Secrets recalled the identity of that person and could not help but stare with widened eyes, trembling in rage.
Up till this point of his cultivation, he had never lost his composure as such!
That was because he just realized that this shocking trap that he painstakingly set up to amass such a rich power of bloodline might very well just be paving the road for others!
The oriole stalks the mantis as it stalks the grasshopper!
He was merely the mantis.
The mastermind was the true oriole!
Heavenly Secrets shouted in rage. Coupled with his injuries, his blood qi surged uncontrollably and he spat out a mouthful of blood!
