Chapter 779 2 [Assault, Murder Mystery]
If he was able to counterattack successfully and critically wound the Ghost-eye King, he believed that the Demon Doctor Wei Jing Lue would definitely believe in his sincerity.
Whether it’s to reach an alliance or to eliminate a potential rival, any of those reasons is worth taking action for. Deputy Palace Lord Wei Shu was secretly on guard, the next attack would definitely be the Ghost-eye King’s sneak attack, if it was not in this law-filled Rain Valley, but somewhere else, then Wei Shu could wait for the Ghost-eye King’s attack with complete confidence. Because, with his strength as a Deputy Palace Lord, it would be more than enough to deal with a king-level expert… Unfortunately, in this Rain Valley, his strength was greatly reduced.
Of course, the Ghost Eye King certainly had greater limitations as well.
How should he seize this opportunity to strike with all his might and critically injure the Ghost Eye King?
The Ghost-eyed King is very strong, and is especially proficient in spirit attacks. As long as anyone looks at his eyes, they will be affected to varying degrees, for those with weaker strength, it is even possible for the Ghost-eyed King to directly use his Ghost-eye to destroy the spirit, meting out an instant kill.
But the Ghost Eye King also has a weakness, and that is that his eyes can suffer wounds in particularly bright places.
And Deputy Palace Lord Wei Shu just happened to know this particular weakness of his.
It was like the sound of the wind but also like the sound of rain.
However, Wei Shu understood in his heart that this was the sound of wind and rain that the Ghost-eyed King had imitated, and this was the beginning of the opponent’s sneak attack!
Ghost Eyed King, I’ve been waiting for you for a long time! In a flash, Deputy Palace Lord Wei Shu burst out his full force, his body shone like the sun, and his light was like a strong blast, passing through the rain curtain and directly illuminating the entire Rain Valley, blinding everybody to a point where they could not keep their eyes open. In both his right and left hands, Deputy Palace Lord Wei Shu formed two balls of light that was comparable to two mini suns and merged them together.
At the instance he turned around, Wei Shu shot the “Sunsphere” towards the shadow that was rushing towards his back: “Ghost Eyed King, quietly become a blind man!
The Sunsphere exploded with a bang.
The impact of the explosion caused the entire Rain Valley to shudder, the blinding rays causing the heavens and earth to lose their colour.
The dazzling flash filled the Rain Valley for a long time.
It wasn’t until three minutes later before it faded back to what it was.
Demon Doctor Wei Jing Lue originally didn’t want to cause any trouble, but he couldn’t curb his curiosity and wanted to see how powerful the Deputy Palace Lord of the Central Palace Hall was. He wanted to see whether a King-level Heaven Ranker could receive such a powerful blow. Would the Ghost Eyed King be utterly defeated or would he be able to fight on even terms with Deputy Palace Lord Wei Shu?
The sight that appeared before his eyes shocked him.
Shocked beyond belief!
For a long time, Demon Doctor Wei Jing Lue stood frozen on the spot as if struck by thunder, his brain was numb and could not think properly.
It was unknown when, but three shadows had silently glided towards the back of Demon Doctor Wei Jing Lue, they originally wanted to take this opportunity to kill the Demon Doctor, but who would have expected that after looking at the events that took place, the shadows immediately stopped in disbelief and also froze, for a long time not knowing how to react. In front of the four of them, the surrounding valley had exploded into a huge circle, and except for the perimeter protected by the power of the law, the ground had completely exploded into a huge pit with no sign of its bottom.
At the center of the pit, there was a lone pole.
There was a man standing on that pole.
It was Deputy Palace Lord Wei Shu.
Wei Shu was still in the position of swinging his Sunsphere at the enemy, however, he was dead.
Wei Shu who didn’t even know when he died still had a smug look on his face, as if visualizing the Ghost-eyed King turning into a blind man. Yet, he had died……there were no wounds on his body, apart from his eyes which had lost the luster of a living person, apart from his body which did not have a speck of life in it, everything else looked normal, even the treasures he was wearing was still helping him keep his balance.
Who killed Wei Shu from the Central Palace Hall?
This was a Deputy Palace Lord who had the strength of a peak Heaven Rank 6, somebody even more powerful than a King-level Heaven Ranker. Yet he had died in this Rain Valley without a word, who has the ability to do this in a single stroke?
The Demon Doctor’s face was horrified.
He couldn’t imagine.
Wei Shu, outwardly looked unharmed. But inside his body, there were at least three fatal injuries. The first one is the energy crystal in his head, which has been completely shattered, without which Wei Shu cannot fight: the second one is the magic heart, which has been removed, and similarly, without the magic heart, even if Wei Shu was not dead, his body would not be able to function; the third one is the fatal star point which connects the body and the spirit, which had just been circulated by Wei Shu to his arm, yet had been discovered by the enemy and destroyed. This way, even if Wei Shu has a thousand treasures to protect his body, even if he had resurrection crystals, it is impossible for him to revive. Because even his spirit had been completely annihilated. An extremely tall, lean shadow drifted forward, its voice as cold and ugly as ice.
“Ghost Eye King, wasn’t it you who did that?” The leftmost of the three shadows that had joined forces cried out in alarm.
“Ridiculous, Six Pan King, do you think that I, Ghost Eye, can kill the Deputy Palace Lord of the Central Palace Hall? If I had that kind of strength, why would I have to come here to risk my life, wouldn’t it be easier to directly march up to the Central Palace Hall and challenge a Deputy Palace Lord, would that not be better?” The extremely tall, thin and long Ghost-Eyed King faced the others with his back and had his eyes closed.
“If you didn’t do it, who could it be?” One of the three shadows asked out of doubt.
“There must be someone else here, maybe even more than one.” The shadow on the far right of the three shadows made a judgment.
“Being able to easily kill Wei Shu before we arrived, this person must at least have King-level strength, now it’s our turn to be in danger.” Demon Doctor Wei Jing Lue started to laugh maniacally, “Shiver and shake for your lives, inside this ancient ruins all our lives are worthless, the death of a Deputy Palace Lord from the Central Palace Hall is nothing, even the death of a few King-level Heaven Rankers would be nothing! In front of a real expert, we are nothing more than slightly larger crickets, hahaha!”
“That’s enough, the person who killed the Deputy Palace Lord of the Central Palace Hall is not necessarily our enemy.” Ghost Eyed King laughed coldly: “I think the only thing we have to worry about now is the Central Palace Hall, now they have completely found an excuse to send troops into the ancient ruins.”
In the Shrine Sanctuary of the Snowfield Camp, there was a man cloaked in a cloak of concealment.
When he saw the crystal ball on the table shattering soundlessly into pieces, he immediately stood up and waved his hand to the elders of the divine temple who were standing respectfully outside the door, and gave an order: “Wei Shu that pathfinder has really been slaughtered. Give the order to set out immediately, in the name of avenging our comrade, slaughter all Heaven Rankers inside the ancient ruins. As for the campsite outside, after we leave, let those scum from the Dark Realm attack immediately…….the Western Heaven Realm has been peaceful for far too long!
