Revolt against the Heavens – Chapter 97: End of the obsession

Chapter 97: End of the obsession

The more Cao Yun was using 'Dragon's Chest' in an actual fight, the faster he was understanding it. Within his now calm sea of consciousness, the Root Star was shining even brighter than the actual sun. The principle behind the technique could seem simple at a first glance. It consisted in sending Qi to enhance the part of the body one wanted to protect. However, in practice, the way of circulating said Qi was extremely complicated. Thankfully, Cao Yun had developed his Po character and his ability to circulate his Qi was way more refined compared with a standard Mortal cultivator.

rThe next step seemed pretty obvious. It consisted in enhancing all of the body at once. If one was able to reach this stage, his body would become as resilient as the body of a dragon who would have a similar strength. Dragon scales were usually considered like the most durable material any living thing could produce. Some metals or rocks were more resistant but they did not come from a living being.

rCao Yun had not yet reached this level. But right now he was using this 'Dragon's Chest' both in his back to prevent the bleeding and in his hands to tighten his grip on the spear. He did not need to protect anything else because he was focusing on dodging and attacking quickly, before retreating just after.

rFinally, after several minutes, Luduo Bu's defense started to give way and Cao Yun's 'Nine Chi Black Dragon Spear' penetrated his waist. The wound was not very deep. Yet the effect on Luduo Bu was tremendous. The inner demon realized he was losing and with this wound, he would have a harder time moving. Understanding that fighting Cao Yun head on was foolish, a ray of rationality pierced through his hatred.

rThe little servant had not been able to run away until now. She had been pinned down by the blood runes. Even though they had all disappeared, absorbed by the Drop of Wrath, Huang Cixi had no way of knowing that. In fact, she was still laying down in the Dark Veil array formation. The sounds of the fight were echoing relentlessly in the basin and she was utterly powerless.

rHuang Cixi hated this feeling. Her own life was in the hands of the man she was supposed to hate but yet couldn't do wholeheartedly. The only thing she could do was stay out of his way. No matter how much she racked her brain, there was no other choice. And just like Cao Yun, she began to deeply understand the importance of strength. Even if she became the most important woman in her family, everything could be destroyed in an instant by a powerful assassin. As she was cursing her own weakness, she swore to become stronger. Then, she heard someone approaching.

rHer heart stopped for an instant. The noise of the fight had not stopped. And Cao Yun would never come to her because she knew he was actively trying to protect her. The only person who could be coming down there was Luduo Bu. And the only reason why he would do so was obvious.

rHuang Cixi was right.

rAround the small basin, Cao Yun was trying to divert Luduo Bu by attacking him. Although his attacks were making some flesh wounds, they were not enough to deter the inner demon. By the time he went down toward the array formation, he was covered in fresh blood, as he wasn't fast enough to block every attack.
