Purple One spoke coldly, “Stop acting like a ghost. Come out!” He pointed his right hand to the sky as he was saying that. A ball of white light surged skyward despite his soul ring which had not even been triggered. The mass of white light was condensed. It surged upright to the sky fifty meters above before it suddenly exploded and transformed into a white halo ring that illuminated the surrounding ground.
He had such powerful control over his soul power. Tang Wulin was shocked because Purple One lived up to his reputation as a purple fighter. The effect was obviously launched with his Mysterious Heaven Method soul power. It conserved soul power as compared to using his soul skill. At the same time, it had an illuminating effect. It appeared to consume massive power, but in reality, the soul power that was expended was insignificant.
There was nothing on the ground. With his Purple Demon Eyes, he did not see anything suspicious within his visual field.
Purple One spoke with a deep voice, “Follow me.” As he was saying that, he walked outside in quick strides.
There was no doubt that the peculiar situation was only happening within the factory. It would be better for them to leave the place.
“Boohoo… boohoo… boohoo…” the sobbing echoed once again while the surrounding air turned bleak and cold.
Just as Purple One and the four yellow fighters were about to head out from the factory zone, the surrounding space began to warp violently that they could not distinguish their direction anymore. Everyone felt dizzy as if the sky and land were churning as a whole. An unknown fear and spiritual stress suddenly overwhelmed them akin to rising tidewater rushing in and overpowering them.
Meanwhile, they had yet to discover where the enemy was coming from.
Purple One spoke with a deep voice, “It’s a spiritual illusion. It’s possibly an enemy skilled in spiritual power. I can’t reach the headquarters. Be careful, everyone. Stay together.”
He noticed that a vine had wound around his waist. Instinctively, he turned his head to find Tang Wulin making a hand gesture at him.
The most scary part about being in an illusion was that they would lose communication with one another after they were forcefully separated by the enemy. Tang Wulin managed to unleash his Bluesilver Emperor to solve this issue.
The sobbing grew louder while the surroundings were spinning rapidly akin to being on a merry-go-round. Purple One attempted to launch an attack but his attack dissipated as soon as it struck the illusion just like clay oxen going into the sea.
Purple One stopped acting rashly. He felt like he had sunk into the deepest valley for falling into the enemy’s deadly illusion. An illusion of this stature was definitely not something that could be unleashed by an ordinary soul master. This had to be done by a person with domain abilities. It would be extremely difficult for them to break away from the enemy’s domain. It was apparent that the enemy was attempting to cut off their communications with headquarters requesting for reinforcements.
Meanwhile, Tang Wulin’s voice echoed in Purple One’s ears, “Purple One, it’s Yellow Three here. I know how to break the illusion temporarily. Get us out of here using the fastest method when I’m diffusing the illusion.”
“Okay!” He did not question how Tang Wulin was going to diffuse the illusion. A Tang Sect fighter’s steady composure was undoubtedly revealed at this time.
Tang Wulin’s voice was heard simultaneously in the ears of his fellow fighters. In the next moment, he spoke softly, “Three, two, one!”
The group was pulled together in unison following Tang Wulin’s count of three. Soon after, Tang Wulin straightened his body. There appeared to be no change in the five soul rings on his body. In reality, it had already been replaced with the Golden Dragon King’s four bloodline soul rings.
“Roar…” a raging roar that shook the heaven and earth was heard that it shut out the sobbing sound instantly.
A terrifying and deafening roar was unleashed as if an enormous golden dragon head was about to surge skyward. The illusion was at once shattered akin to a bubble popping while the surrounding factory area seemed to have returned to normal instantly.
There was no need for Tang Wulin to speak. Purple One had already leaped and pulled at the Bluesilver Emperor on his body with both his hands simultaneously. He had relied on his seven-ring Soul Sage cultivation base to gather Tang Wulin and the rest to dash out swiftly.
The sudden turn of events took the concealed enemy hiding in a dark corner by surprise. Their speeds were unusually swift as they dashed out of the factory zone.
“Argh…” a seemingly sad scream pierced the air. A gigantic skull suddenly bored out of the ground just as they were about to dash out of the factory.
The skull was ten meters high with green flames darting from its eye sockets. A puff of green flames shot out toward Tang Wulin’s group of five as it opened its mouth.
Although it was not hot, the five people felt an intense piercing pain permeating their souls simultaneously. It was as if the soul fire was burning in their minds.
What trick was this?
Purple One roared in rage as purple radiance shot out violently from his eyes. He had already perfected his Purple Demon Eyes. At the same time, pieces of battle armor turned around swiftly on his body. A pair of wings spread open behind his back to block the green flames from hurting the four people behind him.
A muffled humph was heard as Purple One staggered once. The dark brown battle armor covering his body was tainted by the green flames much to everyone’s surprise.
Yellow One shouted in her pleasing voice as a stream of pure white flames swept across Purple One’s body, “Spiritual Heal!”
Her execution was precise because there was no doubt that the green flames were aimed at attacking one’s sea of spirit. The green flames on Purple One’s body were subdued as expected. However, the flames spurting out from the gigantic skull had spread out in all directions and were sweeping toward them.
Yellow Four shouted as the fourth soul ring on his body glowed brightly. A revolving, circular shield appeared. The shield was covered with a layer of strange scales when it was conjured. The strange scales rapidly spread out and transformed into a protective shield that enshrouded the whole group.
At the same time, everyone’s battle armor was already unleashed to enhance their defenses.
Purple One roared once as the sixth soul ring on his body shimmered. Finally, the group of people found out his martial soul.
A purple giant dragon flew into the sky following a loud and distinct cry. It flapped its wings in the sky as a purple energy storm swept across an area a hundred meters ahead of them abruptly.
The Purple Jade Divine Eagle was a species of extremely powerful flying-type soul beasts. Purple One was launching his sixth soul skill at present which was known as the Divine Eagle Heavenly Dance.
The Divine Eagle Heavenly Dance was capable of unleashing the Purple Jade Storm. The dual spiritual and physical attack storm was released as a siege attack that was capable of attacking a large area.
The Purple Storm lashed into the giant skull’s green flames. However, it only managed to block the flames from continuing to lash at the group but was incapable of launching an attack.
It was at that moment they understood that the enemy they were fighting was far more powerful than them. They had not even seen the person, yet they were already in an inferior position.
The calmest person at the moment was Tang Wulin. After his horrendous experiences on Demon Island, his mental strength far exceeded the ordinary folks.
Tang Wulin was not in a rush to attack as he was observing the gigantic skull closely when Purple One and Purple Four were resisting the enemy’s attack.
He realized that there was a ring of faint green radiance that was continually accumulating in the skull’s direction whenever the giant skull spurted green flames. It was as if the skull was absorbing something from its surroundings.
Tang Wulin grew more certain of his judgment when he witnessed the scene.
“Roar…” His third soul ring shimmered as the Golden Dragon Roar was heard once again.
The green flames spurting from the skull’s mouth flickered slightly but it did not appear to be weakening. However, one would notice the faint green radiance around the skull vanish each time the Golden Dragon Roar was unleashed.
Meanwhile, Tang Wulin leaped from the side. The Golden Dragon Spear had already appeared in his right palm flashing with a golden radiance. The piercing golden radiance emanated from his body as he flung his arm transforming the Golden Dragon Spear into a golden electrode that shot straight into the skull’s forehead.
The entire process from launching the Golden Dragon Roar to hurling the Golden Dragon Spear was completed by the time it took to blink one’s eyes twice.
It was apparent that the giant skull was affected by the Golden Dragon Roar. Meanwhile, the Golden Dragon Spear had already arrived at the center of the skull’s forehead within a split second.
A green light shield appeared simultaneously, but nonetheless, it was penetrated by the Golden Dragon Spear. The shield vanished in a flash the moment it came into contact with the Golden Dragon Spear’s tip.
The Golden Dragon Spear was equipped with three special abilities that were puncture, penetrate, and devour. Each time Tang Wulin broke through a layer of the Golden Dragon King Seal, his control and comprehension of the Golden Dragon Spear would be elevated by a rank.
The giant skull tilted backward due to the momentum created by the Golden Dragon Spear after it penetrated the shield. The green flames in its mouth spurted into the sky.
Tang Wulin let out a loud and distinct dragon’s roar while he was in the air. A flash of golden shadow appeared in midair as he launched the Golden Dragon Flies!
