As the pursuit became more intense, the faster their speed was. The black-robed man tried everything to delay the time, but this was what Ye Xiwen could not tolerate.
A stream of blood essence in him began to boil and burn. This was to temporarily improve his strength at the cost of burning blood essence. The average person would not do this casually, because the total amount of the blood essence in the human body was simply not enough. Who would simply waste them?
But Ye Xiwen was different. He just obtained a lot of blood essence and energy from Star Beast. For him, it was nothing to consume of it. Even in a short time, he did not care.
He didn’t have that time to allow the black-robed man to enslave the Star Beast.
After burning his blood essence, Ye Xiwen’s speed had greatly improved in a short time. Although the duration of it would not be long, it was enough for him to catch up with the black-robed man who shuttled in space.
“Inverting the Ocean Seal!” Ye Xiwen screamed, and a pair of golden wings flapped behind him. His figure rushed to the back of black-robed’s man. Ye Xiwen’s speed was innately faster than the black-robed man. It was just that the black-robed man’s spatial ability was troublesome.
Ye Xiwen was now like a fisherman. He kept protruding big hands on the surface of the water, trying to catch the fish that freely swam in the water. The black-robed man was the fish. It would be difficult to catch. Or more precisely, it was simply impossible to grasp it.
So Ye Xiwen adopted drastic measures to set up the black-robed man, which was to directly shatter the space.
After Ye Xiwen caught up with the black-robed man, he formed a huge ocean directly in the sky, turned into an ocean-blue seal, and bombarded it on the black-robed man.
The black-robed man had no idea that Ye Xiwen had suddenly improved his strength further, and the speed was suddenly increased to a great height. Although it only lasted for a while, it was substantial to be fatal and enough to make a difference.
Ye Xiwen would be able to deliver a fatal blow during that short window. In the previous pursuit, the black robe lacked such a chance, so he failed in the end.
“Bang!” The black-robed man didn’t have time to react and was hit. Although Inverting the Ocean Seal was not as strong as the Rippling Mountain Seal, water had the distinction of running water and flood. Who dared to say that the flood was not strong enough?
His body seemed to be broken apart at once. There was a big hole at the black robe. It was badly mutilated with blood splashed out. The white bones were vaguely visible. The black-robed man was almost dead.
Although he was not dead, it was obviously fatal. He was seriously injured, and his body flew out directly. However, that also won a little time for him.
The black-robed man had blood on the corners of his mouth, and his eyes were as fierce as a wolf. He looked at Ye Xiwen with a ruthless heart. As long as he enslaved the Star Beast as a slave, he would definitely settle the score with Ye Xiwen.
Although Ye Xiwen couldn’t see his expression and couldn’t read his thoughts, Ye Xiwen knew the black-robed man wouldn’t give mercy later, so he quickly rushed in for the kill.
Since the black-robed man was injured, his speed was far from being comparable to his initial one. Even if Ye Xiwen’s impact force made him fly out a short distance, there was no way to stop Ye Xiwen’s pursuit.
“It’s over!” Ye Xiwen’s tone was cold, without any sympathy. Facing such a madman who wanted to destroy the world, any means were needed.
Every pore in Ye Xiwen’s body was bursting with sword aura. Sword aura condensed into a long sword in the void, and it suddenly slashed downward. The vast sky was seemingly halved.
“Thwack!” The black-robed man was frightened and wanted to dodge away. Despite him mustering all his spatial ability could do, he still couldn’t completely avoid it. Moreover, Ye Xiwen dismembered the entire left arm completely. Even the entire half of the body was bloody due to the influence of Ye Xiwen sword aura, almost to the point of decay.
Ye Xiwen’s sword aura was so overbearing that he almost chopped off half of his body.
“Ah!” The black-robed man screamed and burned his blood essence fanatically. However, instead of attacking Ye Xiwen, he fled. He chanted an ancient and inconceivable spell; a space door appeared in front of him. This summon would have a certain amount of repercussion. With that, he rushed in the space door with no hesitation, disappearing without a trace.
This happened too suddenly. Ye Xiwen had no time to react, and was too late. It was not because he was too slow to sense the spatial ability. However, in front of this natural spatial ability user, Ye Xiwen’s improvement in the perception of space due to cultivation upgrade was still lacking.
This was a gap that talent brought upon. It would be difficult to make up!
However, Ye Xiwen only had a little regret. He had already achieved an extraordinary feat. If the Star Beast did not transmit a lot of blood essence and energy to him at the most critical time, attacking the black-robed man was simply a suicide attempt.
Right now, he did not only survive but delivered a fatal blow to the black-robed man. It was already a surprise.
Naturally, he was overjoyed. After the breakthrough to Half-step Transcendent Realm, he was still balanced in both offence and defence. Even if he encountered a Transcendent Realm, he still had a fighting chance.
Looking at the scroll, the Spirit Beast’s spirit was drawn out bit by bit. Ye Xiwen waited quietly.
“What are you waiting for? Destroy the scroll!” The Star Beast saw Ye Xiwen fend off the black robe and quickly shouted. What he was most afraid of was that the spirit was drawn out and became a slave to others! He would rather die than getting into this state.
“Hmph, destroy it? Why should I destroy it?” Ye Xiwen smiled coldly at the corner of his mouth. When he looked at this Star Beast, he didn’t hide his killing intentions. He almost suffered two bitter losses in front of this monster, making him hate this Star Beast.
“Do you think I don’t know what you want to do? You want me to die along with him and take advantage of the situation!” said Ye Xiwen. “It’s whimsical and delusional. I want to see how you will end up in the end!”
“How do you know?” Star Beast finally understood that Ye Xiwen had seen through its strategy. No wonder Ye Xiwen was not willing to help him destroy the scroll.
“I knew it from the beginning. I feigned obedience to obtain the help of your blood essence and energy!” said Ye Xiwen faintly.
“Human! You are despicable!” Star Beast roared, his roar almost rippling across the sealed site. Many star beasts around heard the roar of the Patriarch, and they could not help but shudder.
“Vile? How can I compare with you!?” Ye Xiwen smiled, but he was scolding in his heart. This Star Beast had lived countless years. Even if it was a fraction of their lifespan would be more than his. If someone was really deceived by this huge monster’s appearance, thinking it was merely a no brainer beast, then it would be a big mistake.
It was sly like a fox. If it wasn’t for Ye Xiwen’s fruitful adventure and various coincidences, he had already suffered a loss in the hands of such an old creature.
Even so, he did suffer a big loss. The demon seed nurtured in his body. Hence, he would be really cautious around this ancient creature.
Star Beast was suddenly stunned. Of course, it wouldn’t think that if it didn’t want to conspire against Ye Xiwen, it wouldn’t end up like this. It would only be depressed and unwilling. It never thought that Ye Xiwen could break his conspiracy in such a short period of time. This was where he miscalculated and where he was finally overturned by Ye Xiwen.
“You don’t need to struggle anymore. I want to see the magic in these scroll!” said Ye Xiwen. He knew the scroll only absorbed part of the Star Beast’s spirit. The most important thing was that the process could only be completed after the sacrifice at the later stage and various complicated processes. The black-robed man had fled, thus the scroll would fail.
Ye Xiwen closed his eyes and began to consolidate the Half-step Transcendent Realm he just broke into. Although it was a quick fix, it was the Star Beast Avatar breakthrough but not the main body. It could still provide some experience for the main body.
Even if Star Beast kept screaming outside, Ye Xiwen wouldn’t open his eyes at all.
He knew exactly what he was doing.
It was about another hour or so. With Star Beast’s painful scream, a single strand of its spirit was sealed into the scroll. The scroll suddenly burst into a powerful light, illuminating the whole sky. In the light, countless talisman texts dissipated in it. It was very similar to the ancient talisman essays exuded by the black-robed man just now.
Suddenly, a space door appeared in the sky, and the scroll plunged into the space door. A big hand in the sky suddenly swooshed down, and the space door was directly extinguished. With the space shattered again, the scroll fell directly into the big hand.
The owner of the big hand was definitely Ye Xiwen. In Ye Xiwen’s hands, the scroll was struggling frantically. The countless talisman texts above were starting to burn, mustering all it could to break free from Ye Xiwen.
However, Ye Xiwen would not let it escape. He snorted directly, and sent endless waves of spiritual sense to eliminate all the resistance coming from the scroll.
