754 Trump Card
In Kylie's mini world, the Hellish Cage that was structured from hundreds of black chains was floating in mid-air.
A loud thud was heard coming from the cage, along with an immense impact wave. The evil spirit was striking the cage aggressively.
The Hellish Cage had just got into the mini world for less than ten seconds and there were cracks all over it as it was besieged by the evil spirit. Out of the hundreds of black chains, none of them was in good condition.
Lin Huang knew earlier that his Witchcraft skills would not have that great an effect on monsters with such abilities. However, it was considered strong enough as he managed to lock it for tens of seconds. Although he had activated the skill, trapping the evil spirit was not his main intention. Instead, he wanted the evil spirit to go into the mini world. Since his purpose had been achieved, he would be able to extract its tinder even if it could get rid of the cage.
Lin Huang and Kylie were standing on the same level as the Hellish Cage, less than 20 meters away. They witnessed the moment when the evil spirit smashed the cage into pieces and breaking out.
The evil spirit was pissed. It wanted to fight Lin Huang who had secretly attacked it as soon as it got out of the cage. However, it discovered something strange.
"Why is the sky so bright?" The evil spirit raised his head and looked towards the sky doubtfully.
It should be slightly after midnight now in Martel City and the sky was dark there. However, it was daytime now in the mini world.
Seeing the sun hanging high in the sky, the evil spirit was puzzled. It shifted its gaze from the sky and peered around. The skyscrapers and the street lamps it was used to had completely disappeared. There was a field instead. Also, it could see flowers of different colors, dancing in the wind.
Sizing up its surroundings, the evil spirit finally shifted its gaze to Lin Huang with a strange facial expression. "Is this the… kingdom?"
"The kingdom?" Lin Huang was startled to hear that.
Seeing Lin Huang unable to understand its question, instead of the strange facial expression it initially had, a smile was now plastered on its face. "It seems like you know nothing about this dimension. That's good. The kingdom belongs to me after your death."
Despite not having any idea what the kingdom was, Lin Huang knew that the dimension it was referring to must be the mini world. Seemingly, it thought that the dimension was within its control and had completely ignored the fact that the owner of the dimension was actually Kylie.
"Whatever. It seems like it's not going to tell me what the kingdom is. I'll just kill it and read its mind." Lin Huang did not want to talk nonsense with it anymore.
With Bloody's help, he could still retrieve its memory after it was killed. There was no need for him to waste his time on this.
Since the evil spirit wanted to take over the control of the dimension while Lin Huang wanted to retrieve its memory, their intentions to kill each other were growing.
"Kylie, if it attempts to flee, block its way!"
Right at the moment as he uttered those words, he rushed towards the evil spirit.
The ten purple Life Fires in his body were burning intensely and the black combat sword in his hand had turned purple in an instant, transforming into a purple thunderbolt.
On the other hand, the evil spirit's body was shrouded in a black mist. On its right arm, the black mist got denser, turning into liquid form and had completely covered its arm. Seeing Lin Huang was about to pounce on it, it immediately stomped hard on the ground and struck a heavy blow at Lin Huang. The both of them clashed with each other.
The collision was different from the one that had happened within the foothold. The both of them gave it their all this time.
The first few collisions that happened at Martel City were just trial attacks as the evil spirit wanted to test Lin Huang's abilities. Although it could confirm that Lin Huang was incapable of killing it, it had not given its all then. It had attempted to flee as it did not want to be attacked by the group.
Lin Huang had suppressed his ability as well. He restricted the areas and regions that would be involved in the battle as he was worried that the battle might affect the ordinary residents. For a battle between immortal-levels, even the aftershock of the battle within a certain distance range would be harmful to ordinary people.
Since they were now in the mini world, aside from Kylie and Bloody, there was no other audience watching the battle, hence Lin Huang was no longer afraid of harming the innocent.
Without having to worry about being surrounded by people, the evil spirit could finally give its best shot. Its ability was at least three times stronger than before.
In mid-air, the purple and the black glows crashed into each other again.
Both of the glows resembled the explosion of clouds, enveloping almost half of the sky.
The boom of an explosion was heard soon after, stirring up the atmosphere. The grass quivered as a strong wind blew past, and the waves of grass moved across the field into the distance
The two figures collided with each other again in the air, creating thunderous booms. However, the winner of the battle was still unknown.
Each attack Lin Huang launched was activated with level-5 Sword Dao and each legendary-level sword skill unleashed was close to perfect. He was almost reaching the limit achievable by a human in Sword Dao. However, he was still unable to kill the evil spirit.
The evil spirit did not have any relics on hand. It defended Lin Huang's supreme relic with its bare hands. Despite its fists bleeding each time after the collision, the wounds were healed in an instant as if it never had any injuries before.
The most surprising fact was that without any skills to support it, the evil spirit's attack was on par with Lin Huang's legendary-level sword skills. Each attack it struck was powerful and even far surpassed the abilities of most humans with a similar combat strength.
Since Lin Huang was not even an immortal-level, the evil spirit did not expect him to be able to put up a fair fight. Lin Huang himself knew very well that even without a trump card, he could fight an immortal-level rank-8.
"I've indeed underestimated you. Your abilities are comparable to a human supreme genius. I didn't expect a gravel world could train a person like you."
Lin Huang was stunned when he heard what it said. It was the first time for him to come across the term "gravel world". However, since the first day he traveled to this world, he knew that this was an "initial world". Aside from the world he picked for this voyage, there should be other worlds present too.
"Do you come from a different world?" Lin Huang asked.
"Of course. How could I be the same as the low-class creatures in the gravel world like you? Have you ever encountered any monster in this world that's as smart as I am?" The evil spirit said arrogantly.
"I did really encounter one that was smarter than you. It's hiding in my sleeve," Lin Huang thought to himself.
"It's difficult even to become a Virtual God in the gravel world with rules that are incomprehensive. Many restrictions are imposed on the mutants; even going through our fourth mutation is restricted. I'm not interested in becoming a resident of your world." Perhaps because the evil spirit was trying to show off, more information was revealed.
"So, where did you come from?" Lin Huang had to admit that what it said piqued his curiosity.
"You don't need to know." The evil spirit refused to disclose anything about its background.
"I shall change the question then. Why are you here in our world and intentionally committing murders?" Lin Huang rephrased.
"I'm here purely by accident. I simply wanted to experiment." The evil spirit did not refuse to answer him.
After finishing its sentence, the evil spirit started sizing Lin Huang up with a strange expression. "Actually, you're decent material to experiment on too. Unfortunately, I can't bring your corpse back…"
"Is that true? I have my way to transport your dead body though. There's a skilled forensic scientist who can perform an autopsy on you too," Lin Huang grinned as he said.
"You're such a silver-tongued brat. If it weren't because I've got such a weak body which has severely restricted my combat strength, I would've pinned you down with one finger. However, it's not difficult for me to kill you now, but it'll be a burden to this body…"
After finishing its words, the evil spirit's aura started to grow. It was originally an immortal-level rank-3. In just a blink of an eye, it managed to grow into an immortal-level rank-4. Its aura still did not stop growing. It was strengthened and soon, it made another breakthrough and leveled up to immortal-level rank-5. In just a short while, there was an upgrade in its combat strength again and it finally achieved immortal-level rank-6.
After three consecutive upgrades, its growing aura started to subside and stopped right after it reached the peak of immortal-level rank-6.
"I'm now capable of fighting an imperial level. Human, just use whatever trump cards you have. Otherwise, you won't have the chance to use them later."
"I'll do as you wish!"
After having uttered those words, Lin Huang secretly crushed a transformation card. Similar to the evil spirit, his combat strength started increasing insanely!
