Chapter 1334: Xiao Qi’S Battle
Echoing across the sky, the shrill chirp of Xiao Qi could be heard as he loose yet another burst of resplendent light.
The beating of his wings summoned wind that moved the clouds and lightning bolts that rained down onto the earth like rain. The violet colors of the lightning and the tumultuous blades of wind made the world seem as though the apocalypse was coming.
Everything was heading for the same place. Bolts of violet lightning and concentrated blades of wind were all flying at the same giant black python!
The screech that came from the python seemed more like a dragon than that of a snake. Twisting its giant body, it lashed out with its tail and several mirror images of it to strike down each individual attack coming at it!
Someone like Xiao Qi wasn’t even worth the Abyssal Snake Saint’s attention. He had two hundred years of experience as a class nine soulbeast, what could a newly-ascended ‘junior’ like Xiao Qi possibly do against him?
Xiao Qi didn’t even become a class nine soulbeast by his own strength either. He had Sainthood granted to him by Bai Yunfei sharing the Supreme Saint’s Inheritance. How else would Xiao Qi be able to absorb the Supreme Saint’s Inheritance if not through their bond? He was but a strange prisma oriole with more luck than anyone else, who was he to challenge him!?
Not that the Abyssal Snake Saint was willing to admit it, but…he was actually extremely ‘envious’ of Xiao Qi. So much time was spent training…he even ignored his own ‘honor’ and allowed himself to enter a contract with a soul cultivator to become a Saint. Xiao Qi didn’t have to suffer that. He managed to be able to rely on the Supreme Saint’s Inheritance to easily become a Saint! Where was the fairness of that!?
Because of that the Abyssal Snake Saint was determined to accomplish one goal—he’d kill Xiao Qi himself and eat his soulgem to get stronger!!
But now that the battle was taking longer than expected…the Abyssal Snake Saint was surprised! He was wrong about the situation!!
Xiao Qi’s power was beyond his expectations—wasn’t he supposed to be a newly-ascended class nine soulbeast? This wasn’t the feeling he was getting at all! This felt more like the aura of someone who was close to becoming a mid-stage class nine soulbeast!
He was finding himself outclassed in both speed and power. From the very start, the other had been on the constant attack while he…was stuck being on the defense!
“How can this be…it shouldn’t be possible!!”
Once he came to that realization, the Abyssal Snake Saint was immediately filled with outrage and disbelief.
“An inferior being…you will die!!”
Swinging his tail in timing with when Xiao Qi was easing up on the attack, the Abyssal Snake Saint sent a beam of lighting out! The lightning took on a black light and had a jaw filled with a dozen sharp fangs ready to snap and tear Xiao Qi apart!
But the skill would fail to hit Xiao Qi. At a chirp, he bolted off in a burst of violet to make an evasive action. Circling around the tail, Xiao Qi raised his wings and sent out a shower of golden feathers to strike at the Abyssal Snake Saint’s head!
Sparks flew when the golden feathers struck the scales by the Abyssal Snake Saint’s mouth. The scales resisted as the feathers attempted to break it. They were the equivalent of heaven-tier soul armaments in terms of quality and would not easily be broken. However, Xiao Qi’s attack did make his jaw rattle and groan in pain.
His pride was being tarnished with how he was being so easily countered by Xiao Qi. Furious, he lout another shrill cry before darkness exploded from his body outward as if to enshroud the entire world in night.
Xiao Qi sensed the gloominess in the world immediately. The fluctuations in the elemental energy was beginning to inhibit the flow of certain ones. Already, Xiao Qi could feel the flow of the elements he used begin to falter.
“A domain ability!!”
Xiao Qi realized. The Abyssal Snake Saint was capable of using a domain type skill!
A roar deeper than before exploded from the Abyssal Snake Saint. His tongue protruded from his mouths and sharpened at its tip. It glinted like a sharp blade for a moment before it and it’s owner faded away with the darkness. Eventually, only his silhouette was left before duplicating into eight more copies!
The Abyssal Snake Saint was like a nine-headed serpent for a moment with how the copies melded into each other at the back. All at once, the nine heads pounced forward to bite Xiao Qi!
Shocked by the sudden image, Xiao Qi began to prepare to dodge when a shrill cry stabbed into his mind and forced him to freeze up in pain!
A soul attack!!
Wincing, Xiao Qi let out a cry of his own. Green and white light gathered in large amounts near his mouth before firing off in multiple beams to pelter the individual heads.
“Boom boom boom boom boom…”
Explosions struck at each of the Abyssal Snake Saint’s nine heads. Green and violet light exploded everywhere and deal an even greater amount of pain than the Abyssal Snake Saint thought. Several heads were even forced to scatter apart and dissipate into the air!
But there were still six heads left! Opening even wider, the maws struck at his head, neck, wings, and claws!
Like lightning, Xiao Qi nimbly dodged two of the heads and struck down two of the other heads with a beam of feathers!
Pain shot up Xiao Qi’s right wing for a moment. One of the snake heads managed to snap onto his feathers!
Xiao Qi let out a cry of pain as the real Abyssal Snake Saint bit down on his wing. Striking at the body with three of his talons, Xiao Qi craned his neck to then peck at the head!!
The Abyssal Snake Saint sneered as he reared his head back. It was time for retreat now that he accomplished his goal. Xiao Qi would’ve had his wings torn off if not for the Feathers of Wind and Lightning on them. Still, Xiao Qi’s wingbone was most definitely fractured and moderately crippled.
“Oh!” The Abyssal Snake Saint was shocked to then see Xiao Qi accelerate toward him instead of retreating like he expected!
His guard dropped a bit to see the claws coming at him. An attack like that wouldn’t do much harm to him. Xiao Qi’s right wing was already injured so it wouldn’t hurt his scales that much!
Suddenly, the Abyssal Snake Saint felt Xiao Qi’s soulforce drop in half for some reason. Then he felt an increased burst of speed before realizing Xiao Qi was right at his belly !
“Fool! Death for your actions!”
The Abyssal Snake Saint sneered, believing Xiao Qi to have blundered at last. Springing forward, he moved in to snap down on Xiao Qi’s body with all his might!
