For a time, the space in this area turned into a turbulent sea, and all the land and trees suffered annihilation as they were drowned by seawater.
At the moment when the sea covered the space, Octopus King’s eyes moved. He had sensed something, and suddenly expressed realization, “I see! You used the secret technique to call the life strength of all creatures in this area just now so that you can exert that kind of attack power. Your real strength is only just entering the intermediate stage of the Kingdom level, so you are not my opponent at all. As long as I suppress this secret technique, you will be vulnerable.”
The water level of the sea rose rapidly, and it had submerged all the trees. Catherine’s momentum was indeed weakened a lot.
Catherine let out a low snort, and a black flame ignited all over her body. The flame was full of vitality. The countless green tree canopies in the sea gradually emerged and rose one by one. No matter how the sea water rose, it could never drown the trees. It became a spectacular phenomenon for a while.
This kingdom with powerful vitality is infinitely magical. Nirvana is worthy of being the strongest bloodline talent of the Asmodeus Royal Family.
Octopus King was slightly surprised. The opponent’s kingdom power was obviously inferior, but he couldn’t suppress it. Before he could change his kingdom power again, Catherine’s breath began to increase significantly. She flew straight toward him with the [Immortal Dark Gold War Puppet].
As soon as Octopus King pressed the water surface, hundreds of huge water balls were launched at Catherine like homing missiles.
Catherine’s hands showed a touch of brilliance as she drew a mysterious trajectory. All the approaching water balls seemed to encounter something slippery, and they were repelled. It was not just an ingenious force-diverting trick, the water balls quickly thinned as they slid away, eventually dispersing into a liquid. It was [Element Weakening] of the Asmodeus Royal Family’s bloodline talent.
This talent was called the nemesis of all element attacks. Coupled with the [Anti-Magic] effect of the Dark Shadow Cape, it was enough to make her a nightmare for magicians. However, Octopus King was obviously not a pure magic trainer. Seeing that the water balls couldn’t work, he shifted to the back of Catherine and whipped his arm.
The blow was extremely powerful, and the speed was astonishing. The strong wind drew a rapid trail on the water. Catherine jumped up and did a somersault in the air, narrowly avoiding the blow, but the strong remaining momentum still swept her. A shocking red color appeared on the veil.
Octopus King’s power was unyielding. His arms turned into 8 illusory arms, and dozens of whip rushed over, almost sealing off Catherine’s dodges from all directions.
A huge dark golden figure suddenly appeared in front of Catherine. This figure instantly distorted and transformed into a large shield with a diameter of 10 meters suspended in the air. Those strong winds left countless pits on the shield, but they were unable to break through this barrier.
Catherine had used this short precious time to catch her breath. As she took a deep breath, all the trees on the sea were pulling and swaying in this direction.
Under the effect of this vitality, the [Flame of Nirvana] around Catherine became more fiery, and her breath rose again. The [Immortal Dark Gold War Puppet] quickly transformed from a shield shape to a giant sword, slashing in the direction of Octopus King. This kind of transformation was not simple as it required a lot of Nirvana power, but fortunately, the whole forest had been integrated with Catherine’s kingdom, which could provide quite strong support.
The distance between Octopus King and Catherine was around 50 meters, but this extremely sharp strike seemed to be slashing on his head. Octopus King’s figure was split in half and scattered into countless streams of water while his real body appeared in the other direction.
Octopus King, who got the upper hand, frowned a little. Catherine’s means and will were far beyond his imagination, and she was actually able to be in a stalemate with him in such a high-intensity battle.
Furthermore, even Red Pipit dared not be careless with that kind of counterattack.
Although the winning rate was high, this kind of protracted war of attrition was not what Red Pipit hoped. The Octopus King’s eyes turned to the big trees emerging from the sea. The vitality of these trees should be the biggest source of support for Catherine’s battle with higher level opponents. As long as this support is cut off, then there is nothing to be afraid of Catherine.
Thinking of this, Octopus King’s eyes flashed a terrifying red light, and the temperature of the surfy sea suddenly dropped. The entire sea actually froze at a speed visible to the naked eye.
Catherine was shocked. The [Flame of Nirvana] was burning desperately, but in the face of Octopus King, who had an absolute advantage in strength, she was still unable to stop the freezing. Even her own [Flame of Nirvana] was suppressed to the extent that it was almost extinguished.
Catherine knew something was wrong. As her hands wielded, the [Immortal Dark Gold War Puppet] suddenly returned to its usual form, and there were black flames on its body. It shot at Red Pipit with all her strength. It was obvious that she wanted to go all-in.
Octopus King was long prepared. He left a substitute to divert the firepower of the [Immortal Dark Gold War Puppet] while his real body appeared in the sky. At this time, the kingdom of sea had become a world of ice. Whether it was water or trees, they solidified into ice sculptures.
Life was the most special power. It was not easy for Octopus King to completely block the [Nirvana Kingdom] that contained the powerful life force. His eyes were red as berserk power burst out from his body. With a loud shout, all the frozen trees exploded.
These trees were actually Catherine’s kingdom. The collapse of the kingdom made Catherine suffered from recoil. Her veil was stained with red blood as she barely suspended in the air. The [Immortal Dark Gold War Puppet] flew back to protect her.
Octopus King’s blow consumed a lot of yuan energy, but he clearly felt that Catherine’s breath had been greatly reduced. With a tap of his feet, the entire frozen sea surface cracked open and turned into surging sea water again. The sea water shot water pillar at Octopus King, pushing him toward Catherine.
Catherine let the [Immortal Dark Gold War Puppet] to greet him while she flicked her cloak and disappeared.
The previous exchange made Octopus King very aware of the characteristics of the [Immortal Dark Gold War Puppet], and he didn’t want to fight with it in close range anymore. Due to the collapse of the kingdom, the strength of the [Immortal Dark Gold War Puppet] dropped sharply. After a few blocks, it was knocked onto the floating ice on the sea surface. It quickly froze and was trapped in the ice.
“Not giving up yet?” Octopus King controlled the sea water to sway around in the search for Catherine’s whereabouts.
He first destroyed Catherine’s kingdom, then he successfully froze her biggest weapon, the [Immortal Dark Gold War Puppet]. It was equivalent to sealing off her weapon. Even if Catherine could hide for a while with the Dark Shadow Cape, there was no threat.
Under the surge of Red Pipit’s kingdom power, 10 figures suddenly appeared in the void, but they were not Catherine; they were silver puppets, followed by 30 bronze puppets.
“Silver puppet? Bronze puppet?” Red Pipit sneered, “You even use these cheap stuffs? It seems that you are really out of skills.
Dozens of puppets formed a formation and surrounded Octopus King. Octopus King felt that this formation had a special suction force, and the water element power in his kingdom was strongly disturbed. He immediately exuded power with both arms and the formation collapsed. When it collapsed, dozens of puppets were blown away, and the poor quality bronze puppet shattered in mid-air.
At the moment when the formation was broken, Red Pipit looked back with a sense. He saw Catherine wearing the Dark Shadow Cape flying rapidly toward the frozen [Immortal Dark Gold War Puppet], wanting to thaw the strongest puppet to make the final fight.
Red Pipit would not give her another chance to fight further. He shifted and quickly appeared behind Catherine. The surging strength burst out and hit Catherine’s back. This punch was unavoidable.
Octopus King still appreciated this woman with varied means and tenacious will. Besides, she was one of the 3 rulers, so this punch would not kill her, but it would severely injure Catherine and freeze her so that she completely lost the ability to resist.
Unsurprisingly, this punch hit Catherine firmly, but Red Pipit’s pupils shrink suddenly. The feeling of this hit was too familiar…No! This is not Catherine, but [Immortal Dark Gold War Puppet]!
It is actually the [Immortal Dark Gold War Puppet] who is wearing the Dark Shadow Cape!
The moment Red Pipit hit ‘Catherine’, the thick ice outside the body of the [Immortal Dark Gold War Puppet] which had been frozen on the ice floe, suddenly shattered, and a fiery power rushed toward him. It was impossible to dodge at all.
The shocked Octopus King finally came to his senses. It turned out that Catherine had actually rushed toward him in disguise as the [Immortal Dark Gold War Puppet], then she let the ice hurt her on purpose, causing him to have a preconceived illusion in his mind. The real immortal puppet disappeared under her control with the Dark Shadow Cape while those silver puppets and bronze puppets were just a cover for confusion.
[Immortal Dark Gold War Puppet] lured me here for this long-awaited blow.
The whole strategy is genius. The first part alone requires a lot of courage. Ordinary people can’t do it at all, but she bet it right. This kind of courage and scheming cannot be described with just the word ‘terrifying’!
Chen Rui, who rushed to the edge of the battlefield, was slightly shocked. He felt that the power of [Fire Phoenix’s Yearning] in his body was echoing some kind of strength in front of him. This phenomenon also occurred in the Warlock Fortress.
At this time, there were 2 pairs of wing phantasms behind Catherine, a pair of black and a pair of red. The flames all over her body were not only the vibrant [Flame of Nirvana], but also a combination of pure and incomparable fire element power.
Even if Red Pipit was at his peak, this terrifying power still made him feel dire. He burst out with all his power without hesitation.
The audience felt their vision swaying as if a huge dark red octopus appeared. It was roaring and waving the 8 huge arms in the waves, and above the octopus was a 4-winged phoenix that was burning with flames. Then, the entire projection was blurred under the violent shake.
The shaking finally stopped. Catherine and Red Pipit appeared in the projection. Catherine’s hand was less than 1 meter away from Red Pipit’s head. Red Pipit’s skin had turned red, and his fat face looked a little distorted. Clouds of steam constantly came out from his head as if his blood was boiling.
“You lost.” Catherine’s veil was already dyed with red blood, but her voice was still determined.
Strong unwillingness and disbelief flashed in Red Pipit’s eyes, but he finally sighed, “I admit defeat.”
This was no longer a matter of the number of hearts. An incredible fire element power has invaded his body. This kind of power had quite a strong restraining effect on Octopus King’s physique. Once it erupted, even his soul would be severely injured.
Catherine slowly withdrew her hand, and Octopus King felt the fire element power was withdrawn as well. He took a deep breath, and the blood that was almost burning quickly cooled down. The redness on the surface of his skin gradually faded.
“The blow just now is not simply burning vitality. What is the secret technique?”
Catherine smiled bitterly, “This is a new flame power I got, I named it [Fire Phoenix Transformation]. Fused with Nirvana power, it can deliver a super powerful blow, but only 1 blow. If we fight again, I will not be able to defeat you.”
“I missed a lot of opportunities, and you took the only chance. From this point of view, I didn’t lose in vain.” The Octopus King gave her a deep look, “If you can reach the peak stage of the Kingdom level, you should be a good opponent.”
After speaking, the Octopus King crushed the number plate and disappeared.
At another place, Raizen clenched his fists while watching this scene on the television screen.
Catherine actually defeated Red Pipit!
This is not a simple victory, but a victory against an opponent of higher level!
I have to admit that this woman has surpassed me.
Watching the disappearance of Octopus King, Catherine’s body trembled, and a large patch of bright red appeared on the blood-stained veil.
The price of this [Fire Phoenix Transformation] just now was not trivial. Her injury was more serious than it seemed.
In fact, Octopus King also knew this, but he still chose to leave nonchalantly. Victory or defeat meant little to the Octopus King. The most important thing was the gain of the battle.
Catherine took a few deep breaths. She used her remaining Nirvana power to stagger out of the arena, then she saw Chen Rui at a glance.
When she activated [Fire Phoenix’s Yearning] just now, she had already sensed some kind of response.
Catherine looked at him quietly. There seemed to be thousands of words in her black eyes, but only 1 sentence came together.
“I’m waiting for you in the final.”
