Chapter 597 - The Little Thieving Cat Attacks
The clash between the two-star sects shook the heavens and earth.
Amongst the hostage ships, only Zhao Feng’s Blue Lightning Sea Sky Ship was able to withstand round after round of attacks, and it finally raised some attention after killing two Sovereigns of the Nine Despair Hall with the Ghost Corpse Cursed Array.
“Hmm? Looks like I overlooked them….”
The eyes of the black-skinned elder from the Six Ring Palace lit up. The young captain of the ship was performing excellently after teaming up with the other three Sovereigns. Not only did their ship remain intact, they also slew the enemy.
Of course, that also meant that the Blue Lightning Sea Sky Ship attracted more firepower from the Nine Despair Hall.
Boom! Boom! Boom!
The dark smoke around the ship started to become faint, and the ship started to shake. The sailors within the ship were unable to stand steadily.
“Luckily, we strengthened the ship back then.”
Loulan Zhishui inspected the ship and saw that there was no obvious damage to it. This was mainly because Zhao Feng’s Ghost Corpse Cursed Array decreased the pressure and the other three Sovereigns were able to block the remaining firepower.
Zhao Feng waved the array flag and made the dark smoke focus on defense. He then secretly increased the number of ghost-corpses to fifty.
“We can’t enter the battlefield.”
Zhao Feng restrained his thoughts of slaying the enemy. He made the Blue Lightning Sea Sky Ship appear as if it was becoming unstable and tried to move away from the center of the battlefield.
Bam! Bam! Boom~~~~
However, even then, four Sovereigns and dozens of other experts attacked the Blue Lightning Sea Sky Ship.
“Captain, with your ship’s durability, we have a bit of hope to escape the battlefield.”
Hope appeared in the eyes of the three Sovereigns. Not many people apart from a small number of Great Origin Core Realms could actually damage the Blue Lightning Sea Sky Ship due to its defense and the Ghost Corpse Cursed Array.
“Now’s not the time.”
Zhao Feng shook his head. He could still feel the experts from the Six Ring Palace watching their every action from behind.
The Spiritual Sense of the half-step Void God Realm even scanned over them once.
“The best chance is when the two sides are engaged in battle.”
Zhao Feng had his own plans. Right now, all he wanted to do was not enter the center of the fight while still killing as many Sovereigns as possible in order to increase the strength of the Ghost Corpse Cursed Array.
“Master, the array has now devoured about ten Sovereigns.”
The skeletal Division Leader within the Ten Thousand Ghost Pearl was extremely excited.
As long as it was able to devour the essence of a hundred Sovereigns, the array’s strength would rise to an entirely new level.
On the battlefield, the two-star sects poured in more and more experts into the fight.
Another scream came from within the smoke as an enemy Sovereign turned into a puddle of blood and was absorbed by the Ghost Corpse Cursed Array. In reality, this was already Zhao Feng trying to be low-key. If the enemy Sovereigns didn’t enter the Ghost Corpse Cursed Array, he wouldn’t attack them.
“That ship’s really weird.”
Several Sovereigns maintained a certain distance from the ship and attacked from far away. They thought that, as long as they didn’t get close to the Blue Lightning Sea Sky Ship, there would be nothing to fear.
Zhao Feng laughed coldly.
“Increase the speed and charge.”
Loulan Zhishui received an order and proceeded to control the ship.
The agility and speed of the Blue Lightning Sea Sky Ship made everyone click their tongues.
A half-step Origin Core Realm and several True Lord Ranks were smashed into pieces.
“Zhe zhe…. Even I want to come out now.”
The skeletal Division Leader couldn’t help itself, but Zhao Feng rolled his eyes.
His orders didn’t allow for the Blue Lightning Sea Sky Ship to run away nor enter the center of the battle because both sides had only put in a portion of their troops and still hadn’t fully engaged yet.
Zhao Feng had to wait until both sides were fully engaged before thinking about running.
Fortunately, as time passed, the Six Ring Palace put in more of their troops.
One had to admit that Zhao Feng’s death squad was useful and gave the Six Ring Palace a good opening that they used to charge forward.
“If we kill another couple Sovereigns and then stall another few, the Six Ring Palace will decide to go all-in.”
Zhao Feng’s heart moved.
“Start to move toward the center.”
Zhao Feng ordered, and the sailors all obeyed their captain.
“Brother Zhao, what the hell are you doing?”
“We finally left the center. Putting aside the fact that we’re not even running away, you want to enter the middle of the fight?”
The expressions of the one-armed elder and lady in yellow changed dramatically. They finally lasted through the cannon fodder phase and left the center of the fight, and now they were going back in again?
“Listen to me if you want to live.”
Zhao Feng said coldly.
The lady in yellow leapt toward Zhao Feng who was still holding the array flag from the side. Zhao Feng snickered coldly and was about to attack when he felt something on his shoulder.
A gray-silver streak flashed through the air.
In the next instant:
The body of the lady in yellow froze.
A dark, transparent, mysterious dagger was locked onto her neck, and there was a small bloody gash. A cold intent went to the bottom of her soul.
“Forgive… forgive me…”
The lady in yellow saw a small, cunning, gray-silver cat from the corner of her eyes.
“Such speed. How did it do that?”
Li Yunya, who was the strongest of the three Sovereigns, took in a cold breath. Even he couldn’t see how the little thieving cat moved.
It was as if the little thieving cat had the ability to pass through space.
“Good job, little thieving cat. If anyone else does anything unusual, you can just kill them immediately.”
Zhao Feng smiled in satisfaction.
Over the last half a year, the little thieving cat had used the heart blood essence and the Ancient Dream Realm aura alongside Zhao Feng. Even Zhao Feng didn’t know the cat’s full abilities now.
The little thieving cat disappeared with a flash as it returned to the ancient metal ring with a streak of gray and silver.
Zhao Feng waved the array flag and ordered the Blue Lightning Sea Sky Ship to slowly approach the center of the battlefield.
As expected, more firepower was drawn to the ship, but Zhao Feng wasn’t limited to the Ghost Corpse Cursed Array anymore.
“Wings of Wind and Lightning!”
A pair of faint purple-colored wings condensed behind Zhao Feng’s back. The wind whistled and thunder boomed.
The Wings of Wind and Lightning fluttered as Zhao Feng approached a Sovereign who was near the array.
“Blade of Purple Destruction!”
A thin, purple blade formed in Zhao Feng’s hand, and it radiated an aura of Destruction.
The Sovereign was able to circulate his True Yuan to form a defensive barrier, but he was still cut in two.
The bloodied corpse was devoured by the smoke of the Ghost Corpse Cursed Array.
“Kill that brat!”
Only then did a few Sovereigns nearby react, but Zhao Feng’s Wings of Wind and Lightning fluttered once more as he returned to the Ghost Corpse Cursed Array.
The entire process only took a single breath.
“My Blade of Purple Destruction already formed while I was moving.”
Zhao Feng returned to the Ghost Corpse Cursed Array after killing a Sovereign easily.
Li Yunya and the other two Sovereigns were stunned, and the lady in yellow felt lucky.
Under Zhao Feng’s control, the Blue Lightning Sea Sky Ship cruised around the edges of the center without fully entering.
Zhao Feng wasn’t satisfied with just killing Sovereigns within the confines of the Ghost Corpse Cursed Array. He would also attack anyone nearby, and two Sovereigns were soon killed.
The power of the curse from the Ghost Corpse Cursed Array became stronger, and nearby Sovereigns didn’t even dare to approach the Blue Lightning Sea Sky Ship.
An Origin Core Realm male clad in black armor and holding a halberd charged toward Zhao Feng.
“Great Origin Core Realm!”
The expressions of Li Yunya and company all changed. They didn’t think that they could fight against a Great Origin Core Realm by themselves.
“Get ready to retreat.”
Zhao Feng ordered as he opened the defensive array of the Blue Lightning Sea Sky Ship to the maximum.
At the same time, he increased the number of cursed ghost-corpses to sixty.
Zhao Feng waved the black flag and formed a mist-dragon that clashed with the black-armored male. At the same time, the other three Sovereigns all used their secret techniques.
The black-armored Great Origin Core Realm caused the environment to change, and a cold glint of light swept across the sky.
One could feel the overwhelming pressure and force of the light before it even arrived, and everyone on the Blue Lightning Sea Sky Ship felt unable to breathe.
The Blue Lightning Sea Sky Ship shook furiously and was pushed back half a mile.
The one-armed elder and the lady in yellow both immediately spat out blood, but Li Yunya was strong enough that he wasn’t harmed after the Ghost Corpse Cursed Array reduced the light’s power.
The smoke-clouds formed by the Ghost Corpse Cursed Array instantly dimmed, but surprisingly, Zhao Feng, a half-step Origin Core Realm, wasn’t injured.
A ripple of water had appeared around him, which allowed him to remain unharmed.
“Ice Imperial Spear!”
Zhao Feng suddenly threw the array flag to the side and circulated his Ice Water Bloodline, condensing the phantom of a spear, which radiated an intense cold that swept toward the Great Origin Core Realm.
The others were curious as to why Zhao Feng threw the array flag to the side, no longer seeming to care about it.
The little thieving cat appeared once more and caught the array flag.
Cat paws formed from the power of the curse and attacked the black-armored man from every direction.
Li Yunya and the other two Sovereigns were shocked.
“The fuck? That cat…”
The eyes of the skeletal Division Leader in the Ten Thousand Ghost Pearl almost fell out. The array flag was given to the little thieving cat.
That meant that Zhao Feng and the other three Sovereigns were now comparable to at least four Sovereigns.
On top of that, Zhao Feng’s state of existence was almost at the peak Great Origin Core Realm, and it was only getting stronger by the day. The power of the Ice Imperial Spear was enough to defeat anyone at the Small Origin Core Realm, and it could even threaten those at the Great Origin Core Realm.
