Ye Xiwen’s counterattack arrived in an instant. The fiery long saber in his hand was the most effective beside this Fire Spiritual Pool. Wherever he went, it seemed that even the sky was about to be burned. His surrounding mist evaporated immediately.
The terrifying saber swooshed in an instant, cutting through the vast sky and falling in front of E Ying. E Ying was a little surprised. He did not expect Ye Xiwen’s reaction speed to be so fast. However, E Ying’s combat prowess should not be underestimated. In just an instant, he reacted by summoning a water wall from the void.
The fiery long saber slashed on the water wall. A raging mist erupted in an instant. The sizzling in the air was endless.
But the fiery long saber quickly slashed through the water wall. The water wall summoned abruptly was incomparable with Ye Xiwen’s Burning Wood Saber, particularly the current environment.
This little time window was enough for E Ying to escape from Ye Xiwen’s attack.
Ye Xiwen secretly felt that it was a pity that he couldn’t eliminate E Ying in one go. E Ying’s strength should not be underestimated. Compared with Bi Chen and the like, he was peerless.
Ye Xiwen’s current standing at Transcendent Realm Second Level had a big gap with E Ying in Transcendent Realm Fifth Level Peak. Among the Flourished Cloud Sea Region’s young experts, this E Ying would rank in the first forty.
E Ying looked at Ye Xiwen with lingering fears. He didn’t expect Ye Xiwen to almost kill him just now. If he hadn’t reacted quickly enough, he would die in the human brat’s hands.
It had been a long time since they met. Ye Xiwen’s strength had changed so drastically that it went beyond his imagination.
Previously, Ye Xiwen could only flee in embarrassment, but now, Ye Xiwen was capable of contending with him. Most importantly, Ye Xiwen was just a Transcendent Realm Second Level.
He never thought that a Transcendent Realm Second Level human could threaten him. The opponent’s combat power was terrifying. If such a person were allowed to grow further, he would become a threat to the clan in the future.
Thinking of this, cold glitter flashed in his eyes. Murderous intent raged in his heart.
At this time, Ye Xiwen also noticed the killing intent in E Ying’s eyes. He naturally knew where the other party’s killing intent came from. Though, he merely sneered in response. He hadn’t bothered with the clan yet!
“Who is this Ye Xiwen? Muse Yao, do you know him?” In the distance, Qi Dong looked at Ye Xiwen in deep thoughts, “This fighting power should rank among the first hundred younger generation warriors. But, it’s simply impossible for us to have never heard of him yet!”
Yao Qian just glanced at Ye Xiwen faintly and said, “I don’t know. He appears out of thin air magically!”
“But, it is also true that the genius count in this world is unfathomable. It is almost endless. There are not merely a hundred of them according to the ranking. Every time the top hundred ranks shuffled, new faces appeared. However, it is relatively rare for the new face to attain 50 at once!” Qi Dong said lightly, “Haha, but speaking of it, your ranking in the top hundred should improve after the Holy Realm Dweller’s Mansion closes. Judging by your aura, I’m afraid you’re not far from Transcendent Realm Sixth Level. Your strength will allow you to make it into the top 20 in one fell swoop!”
“Isn’t Young Master Qi the same too? The rankings contest will only get more intense. Those who had the limelight last time have improved greatly!” Yao Qian said plainly. Everything was within her expectations.
Qi Dong was a little dignified. In the Flourished Cloud Sea Region, the competition was naturally fierce, especially for the younger generation of experts. New experts would appear at every ranking contest. It naturally affected those with great aspirations a lot.
Scarlet Thunder Immortal’s gaze flickered a bit. She probably didn’t expect that Ye Xiwen could have such strength. Not only did he not die under E Ying’s hands, but he even suppressed E Ying. It was apparent in just two exchanges of blows. For the experts, it was not difficult to form a conclusion here.
Initially, she wanted to behead Ye Xiwen straightaway, but E Ying preempted her. Despite her hatred toward Ye Xiwen, she didn’t want to be at odds with E Ying due to this matter. After all, the Vanishing Shadow Poisonous Crocodile Clan still had great prestige. Not everyone disregarded it like Ye Xiwen.
Ye Xiwen is dead anyway!
But, what happened next was obviously beyond her expectation. She couldn’t calm down.
“Little brat, I failed to kill you previously, and you’re now a trouble!” E Ying looked at Ye Xiwen and said bitterly. These were congruent with his deep thoughts. He regretted deeply, allowing Ye Xiwen to grow to an alarming level.
“Don’t worry. I won’t make the same mistake as yours!” replied Ye Xiwen coldly.
E Ying’s cheeks flushed with anger immediately. Ye Xiwen’s words struck his soft spot. Ye Xiwen didn’t put him in the eyes and wanted to kill him.
“Wishful thinking. Arrogant!” retorted E Ying. He took the initiative to attack Ye Xiwen.
A pair of iron claws appeared in his hand. He suddenly grabbed at the thin air with a claw aura gushing forward fiercely. The sharp claw aura instantly clashed on Ye Xiwen’s body, intending to tear Ye Xiwen into pieces.
Ye Xiwen’s figure rose to the sky and barely avoided the sharp attack. At the moment he flew up into the air, E Ying delivered another blow on him. The fiery long saber was wielded immediately; it was another downward slash.
Ye Xiwen’s saber momentum was fast and steady as if he had fully grasped this saber technique. He delivered the slash with no pauses.
When E Ying noticed that he missed, he immediately jumped away. Ye Xiwen’s spiritual senses had already locked on him. The opponent wielded the long saber tightly. As if the space was torn apart, another slash approached E Ying in the blink of an eye.
Although he had already reacted extremely fast, he didn’t expect that Ye Xiwen’s speed was faster than he thought. The long saber instantly fell on his shoulder, and the slash penetrated his physical body.
The mangling sound of flesh was followed by thick bloody mists rising. It was all because the fiery saber aura evaporated E Ying’s blood before it had time to gush out. Bloody mist entangled his wound.
E Ying’s face distorted due to the violent pain. He had never been so frustrated and helpless. As a figure only second to Crown Prince Crocodile in the Vanishing Shadow Poisonous Crocodile Clan, he had great authority. He was unrivaled among his peers. It was also precisely because of this that E Ying went about with his nose in the air.
Even since his debut, he was rarely injured, let alone sustaining a severe injury in the current situation. He almost lost his hand and became disabled.
His face turned sour. He let out a roar with his figure backed wildly, barely avoiding the fiery long saber’s slash. But even so, half of his arm was almost cut off.
After escaping the fiery long saber’s slash, he immediately activated the recovery technique. He finally stopped the blood gushing out of his body. He immediately returned his gaze at Ye Xiwen and said viciously, “Little bastard, I want you to die without a complete corpse!”
He growled in a low voice, like a wounded beast.
E Ying roared, ignoring the blood trickled out of his body. It melted into the air. Simultaneously, E Ying was getting stronger and stronger with his aura intensifying at an alarming rate.
The trickled blood formed a looming phantom of a crocodile behind him – the Ancient Barrens Giant Crocodile Phantom.
Although it was only a phantom, the power within spewed despair unto the witnesses. Slowly, the Ancient Barrens Giant Crocodile and E Ying merged. At this moment, he seemed to be transformed into an Ancient Barrens Giant Crocodile.
“Shua!” With a loud blast, the Ancient Barrens Giant Crocodile Phantom under E Ying’s control scratched towards Ye Xiwen. The phantom was massive as a small mountain. Its random scratch could easily tear the space.
Just like the rebirth of the ancient wilderness beast, the power rendered unparalleled horror only by looking at it.
Ye Xiwen immediately kicked his feet and retreated backward, avoiding this terrifying scratch.
His gaze became dignified. This should be E Ying’s strongest trump card, but even so, it was not easy to deal with.
Being caught by this phantom would bear terrible results.
Before Ye Xiwen could think about it further, the Ancient Barrens Giant Crocodile Phantom grabbed the vast sky again, swiftly like lightning. The scratch streaked across the vast sky and approached Ye Xiwen.
