Chapter 602 - Shadow Kill Imperial Dagger
On the other side of the limitless ocean, there was a unique metallic black ship with a few figures onboard.
The warm youth and the white-eyed little girl sat side by side. Behind them were two tall figures – two Death Guards.
“The four Death Spirit Lords and thirty-six Death Guards are spread across the ten nearby island zones. Each Token of Death can sense throughout a large radius, but the chances of finding one person are still very small….”
The warm youth sighed.
The warm youth suddenly sensed something, and the two Death Guards behind him both lightly hmmed as well.
Apart from the white-eyed little girl, a Token of Death appeared in everyone’s hand.
“Third Prince, the thirty-third Death Guard has met the target.”
“He’s extremely far away from our current position. According to the aura, he’s probably about two island zones away.”
The two Death Guards said respectfully.
“Haha…. Our luck is great! The thirty-third guard has already found the target.”
The warm youth laughed.
Ten island zones was an extremely large area to search, and they only had a measly couple dozen people searching. It was like trying to find a single grain of sand in the ocean, yet they actually found the target so soon.
One had to admit that the thirty-third’s luck was extremely good.
Shua! Shua! Shua!
The white-eyed little girl started to draw.
The warm youth turned around and watched.
The picture wasn’t done yet, but one could see a figure holding a short blade.
“That’s right, that’s the thirty-third guard.”
The voices of the two other Death Guards were filled with excitement.
A small gray-silver cat holding a mysterious dagger then appeared in the drawing.
“Lalala, I want this cat.”
The little girl said joyfully, but the gazes of the warm youth and the two Death Guards were locked on to something else.
“That cat’s weapon…!”
One of the Death Guards exclaimed.
At the same moment, back near the two-star battlefield:
The little thieving cat saved Zhao Feng.
At the same time, it cut off two of the Death Guard’s fingers.
“My Death Shadow Body is hidden between the physical and void dimensions. How can this be…?”
The figure of Death asked in disbelief.
He suddenly saw a little thieving cat sitting on his shoulder from the corner of his eye.
Both friend and foe alike, including the half-step Void God Realm currently charging over, were stunned.
A cat…? How is this possible?
The figure of Death couldn’t accept it. Even normal Great Origin Core Realms couldn’t injure his Death Shadow Body. The Death Shadow Body contained the intent of the Emperor of Death, and it was between the boundaries of life and death.
The body was extremely resilient toward every type of attack, and it could reduce any damage by at least 80-90%, yet two fingers of such a powerful body had been chopped off by a cat.
“That dagger…? Wait!”
The figure of Death’s gaze landed on the little thieving cat’s mysterious dagger.
The mysterious dagger glowed with an unfathomable aura. Cold, raspy murmurs seemed to emanate from it.
“Could that be the supreme item of the Dao of Shadow Assassination – the Shadow Kill Imperial Dagger?”
The heartrate of the Death Guard sped up.
Shadow Kill Imperial Dagger!
The figure of Death’s eyes were filled with awe, greed, and wariness.
However, before he could react:
A cat paw slapped his face.
The figure of Death screamed as he felt a searing pain on his face. Even though he had an almost-immortal body, he became dazed.
The figure then turned blurry and disappeared.
“Little thieving cat, good job.”
Zhao Feng felt the cold intent of Death disappear. At such a critical moment, only the little thieving cat could help.
“Looks like the Death Guard wanted to capture me alive.”
Zhao Feng was calm.
Killing and capturing were two entirely different concepts.
If the Death Guard wanted to kill Zhao Feng, it would have been even easier than killing the black-skinned elder. After all, the difference in strength between them simply massive, so it seemed like the Death Guard’s mission was to capture him.
“No wonder he killed the black-skinned elder even though he knew we were enemies; the black-skinned elder could have threatened my life.”
Zhao Feng knew that clearly and let out a breath.
The difficulty for the Death Guard to capture him would be much greater than killing him.
“I don’t care about your identity, you just killed my Sixth Junior Martial Brother. Die~~~~!”
A cold voice that seemed to come from the depths of hell sounded as a powerful half-step Void God intent stabbed toward the figure of Death.
At this moment, the half-step Void God Realm expert had arrived, and he immediately attacked the figure of Death.
The half-step Void God Realm had the appearance of a scholarly youth, but his eyes were red with hatred and coldness as they locked on to the Death Guard.
“Half-step Void God intent? The biggest difference between a half-step Void God Realm and a Great Origin Core Realm is the difference in their soul. A half-step Void God intent can suppress anyone at the Great Origin Core Realm.”
The figure of Death snickered coldly. He wasn’t scared.
The Death Guard turned into a streak of afterimages.
Even the half-step Void God Realm wasn’t as fast as the Death Guard.
“Avalanche God Technique – Anger of the Mountains and Rivers!”
The scholarly youth stood tall and spread his arms as a ball of light radiating a powerful aura started to form.
The air started to tremble, and a gray current started to flow across an area of ten or twenty miles.
The gray current caused the mountains and rivers to shake and the sun and moon to lose their color. All of this came from the half-step Void God Realm.
“The strength of a half-step Void God Realm is terrifying.”
Zhao Feng felt unable to breathe, and he barely managed to summon the Ghost Corpse Cursed Array to block the shockwaves.
Li Yunya had already been moved inside the ship or else his body would have turned to mangled flesh and bones by now.
“You go in as well.”
Zhao Feng waved his hand and put the skeletal Division Leader inside the Ten Thousand Ghost Pearl.
The half-step Void God Realm’s attack was too powerful, and anyone below the Great Origin Core Realm would be finding death if they got too close.
A layer of water appeared around Zhao Feng’s body, which further decreased the power of the shockwaves.
He was barely able to stand despite his strong Water bloodline and near-peak Great Origin Core Realm state of existence.
Boom! Boom! Boom!
The figure of Death’s body finally met some resistance, but he relied on his almost-immortal body to continue closing in on the half-step Void God Realm as black smoke appeared from his body.
“Death God’s Dancing Blade!”
The short blade in the Death Guard’s hand started to twirl.
Whoosh! Whoosh! Whoosh!
Arcs of beautiful blade-light clashed with the half-step Void God Realm.
“Saint Emperor’s Pen!”
The scholarly youth snickered coldly as a mysterious Earth-Grade weapon appeared in his hand. He gently waved it, and beams of sharp light shot out. Each of these beams were able to crush a mountain.
“False Saint Emperor’s Pen? The true Saint Emperor’s Pen comes from the legendary Dynasty of the Saint Emperor, and it’s already reached the peak Earth-Grade….”
The expression of the Death Guard changed slightly.
The heavens and earth were filled with explosions and shockwaves that caused dust and dirt to cover everything.
“Let’s retreat first.”
Zhao Feng opened his God’s Spiritual Eye and confirmed a route, then used the array as cover as he ran toward the ocean.
“No matter who wins, we won’t be able to escape.”
Zhao Feng took in a deep breath. He wasn’t able to enter a battle of such a level with his current strength.
The little thieving cat sat on his shoulder and played with the mysterious dagger.
“That dagger is the Shadow Kill Imperial Dagger? Even the Death Guard’s fingers were cut off.”
Zhao Feng felt surprised. The little thieving cat’s actual strength was unable to threaten the Death Guard. The only reason it could provide any help to Zhao Feng earlier was because of this Shadow Kill Imperial Dagger.
Back then, the little thieving cat had done everything in order to obtain this dagger, which caused even the Purple Saint Partial Spirit to panic.
The Blue Lightning Sea Sky Ship soon left the inland region and headed toward the limitless ocean.
As soon as the Blue Lightning Sea Sky Ship had moved away from the battlefield:
Zhao Feng felt another two Void God Realm auras fighting as he left the two-star battlefield, but in their eyes, Zhao Feng and company were just ants.
“The aura of Death… could it be related to that legendary Emperor of Death?”
The two Void God Realm Kings felt the Death Guard’s existence.
One of the two magnificent powers scanned over the Blue Lightning Sea Sky Ship hundreds of miles away.
“What a terrifying aura….”
Everyone within the ship felt unable to breathe. It was just like facing the limitless ocean whale king in the depths of the ocean.
Luckily, the sensation only lasted a moment.
“Quickly leave this two-star warzone.”
Zhao Feng circulated his Water bloodline and True Yuan within his body, merging them into the array of the Blue Lightning Sea Sky Ship. As the ship had the elements of water and lightning, Zhao Feng’s bloodline and True Yuan could momentarily make its speed rise dramatically.
The Blue Lightning Sea Sky Ship got further and further away from the two-star warzone.
Four hours later:
Peng! Peng! Peng! Peng!
Zhao Feng’s God’s Spiritual Eye started to twitch in warning as the aura of Death closed in.
“Target of the Pursuit of Death, where exactly are you running to? If it weren’t for the fact that I wanted to capture you alive, I wouldn’t have needed to undergo so much trouble by entering a two-star battlefield.”
A tall, ruffled figure chased from behind.
The Pursuit of Death was approaching once more.
“You guys go into the depths of the ocean.”
Zhao Feng climbed onto the deck of the ship and ordered.
Loulan Zhishui and company were full of worry as they let the Blue Lightning Sea Sky Ship sink into the limitless ocean.
Above the limitless ocean, a lonely blue-haired youth with calm and twinkling eyes remained, “The only way to survive is to defeat this Death Guard….”
The Death Guard’s speed was even faster than normal half-step Void God Realms. No one here could escape with their own measly speeds.
