Star Odyssey - Chapter 1798
Chapter 1798: Trapped
To Jiu Han, being attacked was not merely a provocation, but an affront to her dignity.
She immediately screamed, “You bastard! Ill kill you!”
There was a bang as another Vacuum Palm struck her. However, the woman was prepared this time, and what looked like water ripples appeared in front of Jiu Han, showing where the Vacuum Palm had struck. Five more palm prints appeared, but Lu Yin still failed to break through the water that had appeared to shield Jiu Han’s body.
Lu Yin’s pupils shrank; were his attacks really doing nothing? His Vacuum Palms rarely failed him when he went up against Envoys with power levels in the 600,000s. He became much more serious as he stared at Jiu Han. This woman was absolutely the best of her generation, and she had certainly been a Realmling in her youth. After all, she was one of the Progenitor of Combats descendants.
Jiu Han’s eyes were dark as she stared at Lu Yin. They were both in the true universe. The Progenitor of Combats imprint appeared behind the woman, and she raised her hand in a movement that was very familiar to Lu Yin. He quickly remembered Wu Taibai’s technique that he had used during ZENITH: the Mountains and Seas Imprint. This was the Progenitor of Combats secret technique, and it was an attack that ignored distance.
Lu Yin was struck by the attack and blasted out of the true universe.
Jiu Han had expected her secret technique to at least badly injure Lu Yin, and seeing him merely be forced out of the true universe was far outside of her expectations. He was completely unharmed.
Her eyes flashed, and she also stepped out of the true universe, appearing right in front of Lu Yin. “You little beast, lets see how many times you can take this.”
Her hand rose once again as she prepared to attack him with the Mountain and Seas Imprint. However, Lu Yin sneered, as his bodysuit armor ensured that this womans attack could do nothing to him. He simply allowed the secret technique to strike him while raising his own hand and retaliating with a Vacuum Palm.
Mountain and Seas Imprint.
Mountain and Seas Imprint.
The battle between the two continued, but the Mountain and Seas Imprint could not break through Lu Yins bodysuit armor, but on the other hand, his Vacuum Palm could not pierce through the water ripples that protected Jin Han. Both of them continued raining attacks upon the other.
Zhu San and everyone else watching were completely stunned. Space was constantly shattering, and the aftershocks of the battle kept spreading further and further out. All of the onlookers glanced at each other before simply fleeing from the area.
Jiu Han felt more and more frustrated. Using the secret technique repeatedly put a terrible strain on her while Lu Yins Vacuum Palm was just a normal attack. She could not understand how a mere child could unleash such terrifying attacks. His star energy was suppressed and rendered useless by her own stellular energy, but his raw physical strength was enough to not only send his attacks into the true universe, but also ensure that she could not suppress him even with the Progenitor of Combats secret technique.
It was no wonder why he was known as absolutely peerless within his generation. Not even the Daosource Three Skies were his opponents.
This man had to die.
Jiu Han’s eyes grew dark, and she waved a hand. The void shook, and then water condensed into orbs all around her. At the same time, an astral chessboard appeared beneath Lu Yins feet, and he moved.
The void froze where Lu Yin had just been standing, and another ball of water formed.
Lu Yin appeared some distance away, and he stared at where he had been with a strong sense of fear. The ripples of water that he had seen were not actually some sort of defensive treasure, but rather this womans innate gift! She had been relying solely on her own strength to block Lu Yins Vacuum Palms, and with her Mountains and Seas Imprint, she was fully capable of fighting against Envoys with power levels of over 700,000. Lu Yin realized that this fight would be far more difficult than he had expected.
“I already told you that Xia Yi took the piece of jade away. If you have the ability, go bother him for it!” Lu Yin shouted.
Jiu Han no longer cared about the piece of jade at all, as she was now determined to eliminate Lu Yin. If this youth survived, he would one day suppress her Sixth Mainland. Once he became a Progenitor, he would truly be invincible. Her ancestor had even personally interfered during ZENITH precisely because the Sixth Mainland did not want the Hall of Honors First Honor Chosen to survive and become a Progenitor. But instead, this child had become the champion of ZENITH.
Jiu Han waved her hand again, straining her innate gift to the limit as she tried to drain the water from Lu Yin’s body.
This was a terrible thing to face. Many people had an innate gift of controlling water, but not many people were capable of reaching this level of control or even attempting such a feat.
Lu Yin’s body twisted, and his internal organs were jostled. He could not stop himself from spitting out blood. His bodysuit armor could not protect him from something like Jiu Han trying to extract all of the water from his body. “You little beast, Im going to dry you up and leave your corpse to join the others here in this Burial Garden!”
Lu Yin’s eyes flared, and he was suddenly surrounded by stars. There were 9,300 of them, and Jiu Han was also surrounded. The stars then converged to form a sword; Lu Yin was using the Celestial Sword to unleash the Fourteenth Sword.
Jiu Han could not avoid this attack, and not even her rippling water defense could stop it. The Fourteenth Sword struck true, and she coughed up blood.
The Envoy had tried to extract the water from Lu Yins body while he had retaliated with the unavoidable Fourteenth Sword. Both people were injured simultaneously.
Lu Yin seized this moment to unleash Daynight Praises.
The scenery disappeared from around Jiu Han. When she looked up, the first thing that she saw was the Progenitor of Combat. Everything that she had just experienced was forgotten, and the Progenitor was the only thing that occupied her mind. She could not resist dropping to her knees. “Jiu Han greets the ancestor.”
The Progenitor of Combat was an arrogant individual, and he looked down at Jiu Han. He lifted a hand and pressed a palm down. She did not dare to move a muscle. Her life had come from the Progenitor of Combat, so even if he wanted to take her life, Jiu Han was incapable of resisting.
Just as the Progenitor of Combats hand was about to touch her, the vision shattered. Jiu Hans body shook, and her thoughts returned. She grew pale as she realized that she had fallen prey to an illusion.
Her head snapped up, but she saw that Lu Yin had also fallen to his knees, sweat dripping from his forehead. Behind him, a sharp blade could be seen as it swept by. The edge forced Lu Yin to the ground, and it was impossible to tell if he was dead or alive.
Jiu Han turned to look into the distance, but she could not even see a shadow despite someone else attacking Lu Yin.
Down where he had been forced into the ground, Lu Yin was suffering from terrible pain in his back. Even with the protection of his bodysuit armor, his tendons had nearly snapped from a single attack. He had been struck by the Xia familys Triple Blade Will. Xia Yi had attacked him.
Jiu Han had been amazingly susceptible to Daynight Praises. Lu Yin had never considered that it would be so easy to trap the woman, but her mental resistances were impossibly pathetic. If Xia Yi had not launched a sneak attack, the fight would have ended with Lu Yins victory unless Jiu Han possessed some sort of special protective treasure.
Apparently, Xia Yi had remained hidden nearby, and when he had seen that Jiu Han was about to lose, he had instantly attacked.
Lu Yin wiped away the blood at the corner of his mouth and clenched his hands into fists.
Xia Yi. Lu Yin would remember this.
Lu Yins body suddenly twisted again. This was a problem, as Jiu Han was trying to extract the water from Lu Yins body once again.
Stars reappeared around Lu Yin as he attempted to once again counter her with the Celestial Sword and the Fourteenth Sword. Unfortunately, things did not proceed as smoothly as before, as the Cosmic Art was not an instantaneous technique.
Another sharp attack appeared, this time from a different direction. Xia Yi was attacking him again.
Lu Yin released his domain and spread it as far as he could before finally finding Xia Yi standing behind him.
Xia Yi snorted in contempt and slashed out with a blade, quickly following up with a second attack.
The sharp attacks sliced through Lu Yins domain, and he quickly pulled out the Void Rip sourcebox array and unleashed attacks towards both Jiu Han and the Triple Blade Will.
Two lines appeared as two Void Rips shot out. What looked like water ripples briefly flickered in front of Jiu Hans body, blocking the Void Rip aimed at her while the Triple Blade Will smashed into the other Void Rip. Lu Yin took this chance to use the Ce Secret Art to move, but instead of fleeing, he appeared closer to Xia Yi and threw a square at the patriarch, much to the mans astonishment.
This square was a power vessel that Lu Yin had picked up in the Celestial Frost Sects ruins, and it was even able to capture Envoys. After Lu Yin had Enhanced it, the power vessel was able to capture Envoys with power levels of almost 800,000.
Xia Yi was surprised to find himself trapped, and although he immediately tried to slice his way out, he found that this power vessel was incredibly durable.
Lu Yin took a deep breath as he looked at Xia Yi. He then turned to face Jiu Han.
Jiu Han was already looking at Lu Yin, and she took something out of her cosmic ring. Lu Yins eyes flickered, and he shot away without turning his head or looking away.
While Xia Yi was trapped, it would not last for long. The man was the Xia familys patriarch, and he had naturally had his own power vessels and battle techniques that were far beyond Lu Yins ken. As for Jiu Han, she was a descendant of the Progenitor of Combat. Lu Yin had no intention of continuing such a reckless fight, so he was making his escape.
“You little beast, you can’t escape!” Jiu Han shouted as she gave chase.
Xia Yi kept attacking the power vessel, as he also wanted to chase down Lu Yin. This was too rare of an opportunity to give up.
Jiu Han was extremely fast, but Lu Yin was far from slow. Jiu Han kept trying to extract water from Lu Yins body, but he was already on guard against that technique.
He saw one of Burial Gardens gates off in the distance, and there was a figure standing next to it. Lu Yin recognized the figure, as it was not a person, but rather one of the Hall of Honors androids that had the strength of an Envoy. Lu Yin had traveled to the Technocracy with this android before.
Lu Yin was overjoyed at the sight, and he looked back at Jiu Han. “Old woman, that’s one of our Hall of Honors Envoys. Do you still want to chase after me?”
Jiu Han stopped and stared at the Envoy next to the gate. She looked back at Lu Yin and ground her teeth. “Youre a lucky little beast! Next time I see you, Ill kill you!”
Lu Yin looked up at her. “Whatever. If someone hadnt launched a sneak attack at me, youd already be dead.
He looked past Jiu Han. Although there was nothing to be seen, Lu Yin could feel Xia Yi staring at him with murder in the older mans eyes.
If he were not so wary of Xia Yi, Lu Yin would have been eager to fight Jiu Han to see who would come out on top.
Jiu Han retreated. Seeing that she would be facing both Lu Yin and an Envoy, she felt that it would be too difficult of a challenge to overcome.
Lu Yin had no idea how far away Xia Yi was, but since Lu Yin had reached this place, he had a path towards escape.
Not all of Burial Gardens gates could be used as exits, and the only one that Lu Yin had heard of before he entered had been the one on Yima Planet.
He slowly walked up to the gate, and the android opened its eyes and stared at Lu Yin.
“I would like to leave,” Lu Yin said.
The android just closed its eyes again, giving no answer. Still, it did nothing to block Lu Yins path.
“Why are you here? Did the Hall of Honor send you here to stand guard at this exit?” Lu Yin asked.
The android did not respond. This was the same as when Lu Yin had been in the Technocracy. Not once during the entire trip had any of the Hall of Honors androids said a word.
Lu Yin pursed his lips, but he still stepped forward to approach the gate. He glanced back but felt that Liu Tianmu and the others should all be fine. They had left during Lu Yins brutal fight against Jiu Han.
Without another thought, Lu Yin stepped through the gate to leave Burial Garden.
Each gate was actually a portal, and traveling through them felt like traveling through time and space. Lu Yin soon emerged from the gate only to find himself at the bottom of a sea. There were dozens of people surrounding the gate and staring at him.
Lu Yin was not surprised by their presence, as all of Burial Gardens gates would have guards by now. The Great Eastern Alliance had taken similar precautions.
The biggest thing was that Lu Yin had no idea which power controlled this particular gate to Burial Garden.
Lu Yins pupils transformed into runes, and he looked around. He felt greatly relieved when he saw that there was no one close to the power of an Envoy present and that the people surrounding him were all quite weak.
“Who are you? Identify yourself!” called out a stern voice from within the guards as a stout man moved forward. He had quite an odd appearance, as his belly was many times larger than a normal persons, and yet it was clearly not fat. The man actually looked more like another creature than a human. Could he be a merman?
