Chapter 242: The Sacred Mark’s awakening
The Dark Ghost King was not angered by Ye Tian Xie’s provocations. Instead, his eyes released a stronger cold glow and the wild aura surrounding Ye Tian Xie became even tighter.
“Hei, hei, hei, hei…..” The Dark Ghost King gave a low laugh. Perhaps it had been too long since he made contact with anyone else, but it seemed like he wasn’t willing to kill Ye Tian Xie, who was the first being that came here in three years, “Your words aren’t wrong…..A hundred years ago, because of that terrifying Moment of Destiny, we Eight Demon Kings were sealed in the Tower of Destiny…..But…..Ha, ha, ha, ha, the seven sources of power of the Moment of Destiny suddenly disappeared. The heavens have not betrayed out demon clan!! Right now……We have no need to fear the Moment of Destiny…..Because, one of the seven Nuclei of Destiny is in my hands, ha, ha, ha, ha……”
With a wild laugh, the Dark Ghost King revealed a withered skeleton like hand from his dark sleeves. With his hand stretching out, a small mass of orange light filled Ye Tian Xie’s eyes……In the Dark Ghost King’s hand, there was a curved orange beast tooth. This beast tooth was as thick as his palm and there was one flat end and another incredibly sharp end. Around it, there was a weak but strangely familiar orange glow.
Regardless of what shape and size this beast tooth was…..with the second hole in the Moment of Destiny…..it was in the exact same shape!!
“Master, look……In his hand, it’s the orange Nucleus of Destiny! It really is…..Ah wu, his hand is so scary, Guo Guo doesn’t want to look…..Master, quickly steal it, quickly!” Guo Guo first spoke in soft voice, but then she was frightened by the Dark Ghost King’s terrifying hand. She closed her eyes and anxiously pulled on Ye Tian Xie’s hair.
If Ye Tian Xie had the ability to steal it, then he wouldn’t need Guo Guo to remind him and would have already charged up. He did not care who the enemy was…..However, faced with the Dark Ghost King, even if it was the incredibly important Orange Fang, he was still unable to take it.
Orange Fang, it was related to the secret of the Moment of Destiny, and more importantly related to Xian’er’s Moment of Destiny, so he really wanted to obtain it. Only, the disparity in strength made him helpless…..Even if he was the strongest player in all of Destiny…..In this world, he was still at the lowest level, being incredibly weak.
“Hei, human, do you know what this is? This is one the seven Nuclei of Destiny and is currently in my posession. If the Nucleus of Destiny is embedded into the Moment of Destiny, then its strength cannot be compared, but if it is scattered……Although this king doesn’t even have half of my past power, it is still enough to defeat Orange Fang. However, it is a pity that the Moment of Destiny’s power is special and this king has no way of transferring it to myself. However, by suppressing and sealing its power, it will never be able to find the Moment of Destiny, ha, ha, ha, ha……”
With this wild laugh, Orange Fang was taken back by the Dark Ghost King. It was an accident how he had found Orange Fang. The Eight Demon Kings were strong and the Orange Fang, which was one of the weakest powers of the seven Nuclei of Destiny, was defeated by the Dark Ghost King. To protect itself, it turned into its basic form which was currently in the Dark Ghost King’s hands.
The current Dark Ghost King hadn’t even recovered half of his strength…..If this Dark Ghost King was already this terrifying, then just how strong was the past him?
Ye Tian Xie’s mind was struggle, weighing every option that he had. With the Nucleus of Destiny, the Orange Fang so close, he was not willing to leave just like this.
“Dark Ghost King, telling me this much, aren’t you afraid that I’ll tell everyone what I’ve heard today? I think there will be many people that will be interested in causing trouble for you.” Ye Tian Xie’s face turned dark as he spoke in a cold voice.
“Telling others what I said? Ha, ha, ha, ha……silly and laughable human, do you think I will give you that chance? With your little bit of strength, this king only needs to use a single finger to kill you…..Hei…..There is no need for them to come find me. Not long from now, this king will take the opportunity to find them and make them pay the price of enraging our demon clan!” The Dark Ghost King’s voice was sharp and cold. His dark green demon eyes shined with a terrifying dark glow, “Do you see the ball of light behind you? Inside there is the final hope left behind by the Illusory Beast Clan – the Sacred Mark! Hei, the legends weren’t false. The Sacred Mark’s strength far surpasses my imagination, but it is a pity that it is in a deep sleep and won’t awaken on its own! Do you know why this king is hiding here? Because in a bit of time, perhaps two years, maybe even a year, this king will be able to break through the final barrier of this Sacred Mark and make the Sacred Mark’s power into my, the Dark Ghost King’s power……At that time, not only will this king recover the strength I lost to the Moment of Destiny, I will also have the strong powers of the Illusory Beast Clan. At that time, there will be no one that can stop this king, ha, ha, ha, ha……”
Ye Tian Xie secretly snorted in contempt. Not to mention the fact that he could activate the Evil Dragon’s Soul and escape, even if he could not escape and died by the Dark Ghost King’s hands…..As a player, he couldn’t really die and would only lose a level. Then he could tell anyone he wants what he heard and saw.
Ye Tian Xie did not waste words on the Dark Ghost King. He knit his brows and his brain quickly moved, thinking of any method of taking the Orange Fang from the Dark Ghost King. At that moment, the strength holding him in place finally changed, becoming incredibly cold……
“This king hasn’t said anything in many years and now with a human like you, I really feel a little hesitation in killing you……But you must die. Since I’ve escaped from the Tower of Destiny, you are the first human this king has killed, it is your honour. Your blood on this king’s hands can become a blood sacrifice to the great ancient demon god, Li Xiao that we Eight Demon Kings will awaken! Die! Ha, ha, ha, ha……”
Ye Tian Xie felt like he fell into a pool of ice, making his body turn terrifyingly cold. What was even more terrifying was that under this pressure, he had lost all ability to move, not even being about to move his finger. The Dark Ghost King’s eyes glowed with an ominous light and raising his hand, a mass of dark fog was suddenly release from his body. It slammed into Ye Tian Xie’s chest, bringing a heavy pressure that made him lose his breath.
This strength was enough to instantly kill him a hundred, no a thousand times……
In the past, the Twelve Sages combined their powers and used the Moment of Destiny just to seal the Eight Demon Kings, this was not something a new player of Destiny could block. Ye Tian Xie gave a secret sigh and shouted, “Evil Dragon’s Soul!”
A transparent light barrier was erected around Ye Tian Xie. When the Evil Dragon’s Wall was released, the pressure from the Dark Ghost King disappeared and Ye Tian Xie’s body recovered its freedom. At the same time, a deep sinking feeling made it hard for him to stand up and he realized that his entire body was covered in cold sweat.
The Evil Dragon’s Wall could block everything, including being locked down by the Dark Ghost King’s aura.
The mass of dark fog from the Dark Ghost King hit the sparkling Evil Dragon’s Wall and released a dull grinding sound before separating from it, and disappearing without a trace. The Dark Ghost King’s smile froze for a second and his dark green eyes visibly shook, but immediately, his smile appeared once again. He did not attack again and said in a low voice, “You actually had an absolute defense barrier…..Hei, this is interesting. To be able to come in here, you really are now as simple as you seem. However, this kind of funny ant like strength is just desperate struggling in front of this king! This king suddenly wants to see just how long you can maintain this barrier!”
Ye Tian Xie slowly raised the Town Return Scroll in his hands and looked over at the Dark Ghost King before coldly saying, “Dark Ghost King, you just wait for me! There will be a day when I come to find you!”
After saying this, he tightly gripped his right hand.
“Ding…..You are currently under a strong enchantment, you cannot use city returning items.”
That prompt in Ye Tian Xie’s ears made his body freeze and he suddenly felt colder. The Town Return Scroll in his right hand continued to shake.
Strong enchantment…..It was the barrier protecting the Illusory Beast Clan Ruins that would not allow any living beings enter. This strong barrier would prevent all kinds of teleportation spells, otherwise, how could it be considered the protective barrier of the Illusory Beast Clan Ruins. Under this barrier, the Town Return Scroll had no use at all.
Compared to the fear he felt from the Dark Ghost King, Ye Tian Xie’s heart had completely fallen to the bottom of his chest. Even faced with the terrifying Dark Ghost King, he believed that he would be able to leave safely with the Dragon Soul Wall, however this hope did not exist at all……
The Dragon Soul Wall glittered and his HP fell by 10% every second. With each second that passed, he came a second closer to dying.
“Come find this king again? Hei, hei, hei, hei, how funny, this is realy funny…..Your aura is not bad, but it’s a pity you won’t have this chance! Become a spirit that dies under my hand!” The Dark Ghost King raised his hand again and another mass of dark fog began to condense in his palm. His green eyes were staring at the transparent light barrier around Ye Tian Xie. When the Evil Dragon’s Wall fell, then he would mercilessly attack Ye Tian Xie.
Five seconds…..Six seconds……Seven seconds…..
His death was slowly approaching.
He gritted his teeth, but he could not find anything to save himself with. Faced with absolute strength, any struggling would be considered futile.
However, he continued to find a way to escape, not stopping himself from finding a solution. Under this kind of desperate situation, Ye Tian Xie was still calm as he narrowed his eyes and looked all around him, trying to find anything that could let him escape. At the same time, he was slowly walking back step by step…..One step, two step…..All the way until his back hit something and his footsteps stopped. His left hand felt around behind him and touched that white glowing ball filled with white mist.
After nine seconds, the Evil Dragon’s wall disappeared and at that moment, Ye Tian Xie’s left hand touched the ball of light and an incredibly eye piercing light appeared. It filled the entire area and even the dark energy condensed in the Dark Ghost King’s hands was completely swallowed. This area was completely flooded with extreme light.
“This…..What is this!!”
The Dark Ghost King let out a panic-stricken roar and held his blinded eyes as he walked backwards, but he could not open them again.
Extreme light was more terrifying than absolute darkness. In a world of absolute light, everything turned pure white and nothing could be distinguished. However, there was a rotating four cornered glowing array that appeared. It was also white, but this white was level higher compared to the white light, even suppressing this extreme light.
This four cornered glowing array appeared on the back of Ye Tian Xie’s left hand.
