JOURNEY OF THE FATE DESTROYING EMPEROR - Chapter 790
Chapter 790 Huo Fenghuang Vs Mo Xingyun (IV)
Huo Fenghuang went all out as she knew she had no choice. Her aura changed, becoming old, ancient, and full of vicissitude and wisdom. And given her young and beautiful face, it was somewhat odd.
And the reason for such a change was a unique technique from the Ancient Clans called [Bloodline Reincarnation]. Through this technique, she can live the lives of all her ancestors, acquiring their battle experience and other things.
This technique is extremely difficult to cultivate, and when most people do, they can only see one or two generations prior. However, Huo Fenghuang can acquire the battle experience of her ancestors all the way to the Ancient Emperor Era.
Furthermore, she has five Innate Bloodlines, meaning five sources of memories.
The void cracked as she rushed toward him and clawed his face with her dragon claws. Mo Xingyun was not to be outdone. A wild aura emanated from his body and clashed head-on with her.
Boom! Boom! Boom!
Their clash created shockwaves that shook the entire Central Quadrant. If Heavenly Dao did not reinforce the battlefield, they would have easily destroyed all five Quadrants with their powers.
While clashing, Huo Fenghuang opened her mouth to spew a mouthful of flame. However, Mo Xingyun made a swallowing motion and devoured the attack.
Huo Fenghuang retaliated by using a Water Breath Attack, and things should have proceeded the same way, but they did not. Her attack mimicked pressurized water or water jet, capable of cutting metals.
And with her power, the water jet instantly cut off Mo Xingyun’s devouring power and tried to cut off his body in half. Luckily, the Heaven Devouring Emperor was also a person full of battle experience.
His body evaded to the side to dodge. Then, he used a brilliant method to save his limb. His reaction was fast but not fast enough. As such, the water jet should have cut off his right hand and leg.
However, once the attack reached these locations, he separated his limbs, allowing the water jet to bypass him without causing any harm.
Huo Fenghuang did not miss the opportunity and advantage she had. While Mo Xingyun was reconnecting his limbs, she went on the offensive. She used her Flame Dao to burn the latter’s perception, ruining things like his senses, intuitions, reflexes, and Divine Sense.
[Slaughtering Devil Fist]
A red aura appeared in Huo Fenghuang’s hand, and she punched forward. Her fist contained a power designed specially to kill devils. It targeted their fundamental natures consisting of all negative emotions, Karmic Sins, their bloodline, and their position as the embodiment of Karmic Sins between Heaven and Earth.
Mo Xingyun’s body exploded into a blood mist, not leaving a single atom or drop of her soul. The power behind that punch was so overwhelming that Devouring Power, capable of swallowing everything between Heaven and Earth, including living and non-living things, existing and non-existing concepts, was utterly useless. Even his passive domain was forcefully destroyed.
The punch targeted his core existence as a devil and wiped him out from the source.
‘Dead?’ thought Huo Fenghuang. ‘No, not quite.’ Her intuition told her things were not over; otherwise, it would be too simple. And she was correct.
Not far from her, a new Mo Xingyun appeared–albeit with a pale complexion. However, he soon returned to normal after a few seconds.
‘He regrew himself from that drop of blood I cut off from his face earlier,’ she analyzed.
A massive tornado of black flame manifested from Huo Fenghuang. The flame looked odd as it looked spiky as if made of thorns. The flame rushed toward its target, annihilating everything in its path.
Meanwhile, the Heaven-Devouring Emperor frowned. He did not dare to easily swallow any of her attacks.
‘It’s always a pain to fight opponents like this,’ he analyzed. One of the advantages of the Devour Dao is the ability to use the opponent’s power or techniques against them.
Unfortunately, this method does not work for top geniuses like Huo Fenghuang, who has absolute control and knowledge of their techniques. So, even if he could take control of one of her attacks, he knew she had ways to counter-attack it.
[Wind of Destruction]
He waved his hand to create a dark purple wind that confronted the dark flames. In most worlds, there are unique flames created or bred by Heaven and Earth; they are called Heavenly Flames.
However, flames are not the only elements specially bred. As such, there are things like Heavenly Water, Heavenly Earth, Heavenly Metal, and so on. Unfortunately, flames seemed the most common and widespread among them.
And the Heaven Devouring Emperor’s attack was from a Heavenly Wind Mo Xingyun absorbed in one of her fortune encounters.
The clash of these two heavenly elements canceled each other out. Then, Huo Fenghuang suddenly appeared before her opponent and attacked swiftly, and the ferocity of a target hunting its prey while on the verge of starvation.
However, her expression soon changed as her attack passed through Mo Xingyun as if she was an intangible ghost. Huo Fenghuang’s tiger eyes scanned her opponent and quickly saw the truth.
The person before her was nothing but a projection. The real Mo Xingyun entered a secret dimension, similar to a mirror of the current battlefield.
‘According to our spies, Mo Xingyun probably killed Zhang Xuan and absorbed his Void Physique.’
In a short moment, she thought of many ways to deal with the situation, like using her Yin-Yang Dao to enter this Mirror Space. However, she decided to use the most direct and efficient manner–break it with one punch.
She clenched her fist:
Huo Fenghuang did not have the time to attack. Instead, Mo Xingyun detonated the Mirror Space and used it as a bomb against her opponent. And the explosion generated by this attack could only be described as world-destroying, the embodiment of nature’s wrath.
He heard the sound of coughing, and his eyes squinted.
‘Damn it, how powerful is her defense,’ he secretly cursed as he saw Huo Fenghuang with a few broken scales and a few patches of blood on her body.
The Mirror Space he created was larger than this entire battlefield. Yet, she survived a head-on explosion.
Huo Fenghuang used the same tactic. However, the Heaven-Devouring Emperor would never fail for the same plan twice–especially one capable of instantly killing him. So, he quickly swallowed the flame targeting his perception.
Sadly for him, Huo Fenghuang’s battle experience was on par with his. So, she saw a few steps ahead and predicted she would fail. Her attack was only a distraction in the first place.
Suddenly, two Huo Fenghuang appeared on the left and right sides of Mo Xingyun. A Yin-Yang Diagram appeared underneath him while a sun appeared on his left.
The sun moved from his left to his right, and the Heaven Devouring Emperor’s face changed. He discovered he was slowly losing his power, weakening at an alarming rate.
‘Time; she’s reverting me to a younger state. But she does not have Time Law, so how did she do it?’ If he did not understand this weird technique, he would suffer tremendously.
His cultivation realm decreases as he gets younger, and he might even reach the point before he took over Mo Xingyun’s body.
‘Is this her objective?’ He analyzed as he pushed his Devouring Power beyond its limits. Unfortunately, the power of his technique was also drastically weakened as soon as it appeared. As such, although he made the sun stop moving from left to right for a moment, it was far from enough.
‘The space is completely blocked. No, I’m basically sealed inside the space created by this technique,’ thought the Heaven-Devouring Emperor as he observed his surroundings. He entered a calm state, not minding his weakening strength and focusing on analyzing this technique.
‘The Four Symbols–White Tiger of the East, Azure Dragon of the West, Black Tortoise of the North, and the Phoenix of the South.
‘The Sun rises from the east and sets in the east. The movement of the sun is a symbol of the passing of time. When the sun completes its cycle, it represents that one day has passed.
‘Using this idea, she can use her Bloodline to control Time Dao. And by making the sun rise from the west and set in the east using Yin-Yang Dao, she can revert time.’
The Heaven-Devouring Emperor could not help but marvel at such a brilliant display of bloodline and Law. he calmly gazed at Huo Fenghuang and saw four items floating above her head:
The White Tiger Sword, the Black Tortoise Shield, the Phoenix Tear, the Azure Dragon Cloud, and the Qilin’s Luck Seal.
He could tell she used all her Bloodline Artifacts to their ultimate level for this technique.
Numerous thoughts flashed inside the Heaven-Devouring Emperor’s mind, calculating the best way to stop this technique. Unfortunately, his Devour Dao, all his Heavenly Physiques, Innate Talents, and secret techniques were useless.
‘There is only one way,’ he thought, not hiding the unhappiness in his facial expression. The only solution to this situation is to use his trump card. However, his pride was wounded after concluding this fact.
He was forced to such an extent by someone other than Wang Wei. Furthermore, he had to consider the consequences of revealing his trump card so early on.
‘What a terrifying generation,’ he thought, releasing a terrifying killing intent. He decided after reviving himself, he would kill or enslave all these geniuses. That way, they can’t threaten him in the future.
He knew he would finish what he started long ago after his revival. And if these geniuses survived this battle and sealed themselves, they could easily prove the Dao and become Eternal Emperors.
Then, problems will arise if one of them decides to take revenge.
Of course, an alternative approach is to enslave and take them to the upper dimension. The Heaven-Devouring Emperor knew the reason for his downfall was that he did not have a faction supporting or under his control.
But if he could have these geniuses as his subordinate, he could do many things after helping them prove the Dao. So, he immediately decided to do this after seeing Huo Fenghuang’s talent.
Then, a mighty and supreme aura emanated from his body.
Meanwhile, Huo Fenghuang’s eyes lit up despite the horrific danger she sensed.
‘Is this his trump card?’ She took all her willpower not to show her excited emotions.
‘Finally, victory is in sight.’
