Chapter 73: Fully Unleashed Power

A blood-red longsword appeared in Gu Yi's hand. Nurtured by killing intent over the years, the Killing Sword had undergone a transformative change. Ordinary people would be affected by the killing aura emanating from it just by getting close to it.

However, for Gu Yi, this was the best weapon. It not only amplified his third spirit skill but also enhanced his attack power. Blood-red sword energy started to surge from the Killing Sword.

The Dark Demon Evil God Tiger, which was still devouring the spirit beast, sensed this immediately. It abandoned its prey and dodged to the side immediately.

The corpse of the spirit beast, left behind, was instantly sliced into pieces by the sword energy.

Seeing its hard-earned prey destroyed, the evil aura on the Dark Demon Evil God Tiger intensified, especially the "King" mark on its forehead, which turned even darker. A cold, evil aura emanated from the Dark Demon Evil God Tiger's body, slowly enveloping it.

Gu Yi shivered involuntarily. By the time he regained his composure, the Dark Demon Evil God Tiger had disappeared.

"Wind?"

With his greatly enhanced spiritual power over the past year, Gu Yi quickly detected the Dark Demon Evil God Tiger's location. He dodged a few meters to the left, instinctively swinging the Killing Sword in his hand.

The Dark Demon Evil God Tiger was not a simple-minded spirit beast; it was extremely intelligent. Especially in combat, it was exceedingly sharp. It was even more perceptive than Gu Yi.

The top predator in the forest was not to be taken lightly.

From a distance, Dugu Bo noticed the situation. Honestly, he couldn't match such speed. Even though he had gradually refined the poison into his own strength over the years, his foundation was still too weak.

However, he was not without capabilities. Especially his eighth spirit skill, the best means of control.

With this in mind, Dugu Bo didn't hesitate any longer. He flew nearby, summoned his martial spirit, and his eighth spirit ring lit up.

Time Freeze!

For a moment, it seemed as though the whole world had been frozen, even Gu Yi and the Dark Demon Evil God Tiger were immobilized.

Such strong power.

Dugu Bo tried his best to maintain his eighth spirit skill while also using his only ten-thousand-year head spirit bone, Medusa's Gaze. This move was his true killing technique.

A beam of white light formed and flew straight towards the Dark Demon Evil God Tiger with incredible speed. In the blink of an eye, it reached the Dark Demon Evil God Tiger and was about to hit, but Dugu Bo then noticed his spirit power depleting rapidly.

The eighth spirit skill was broken.

The Dark Demon Evil God Tiger moved quickly, dodging the white light. The white light hit the ground, petrifying the Blue Silver Grass it struck.

What kind of spirit beast is this? Dugu Bo couldn't believe his spirit skill had been broken so easily, and the spirit beast was clearly not yet at the hundred-thousand-year level.

Did Gu Yi really intend to attach such a spirit beast to his sixth soul ring?

Despite what had just happened, the Dark Demon Evil Tiger still did not prioritize Dugu Bo as its main target. It could sense the immense power within Gu Yi's body, power that could definitely elevate it to a higher level. To the Dark Demon Evil God Tiger, Dugu Bo's presence was disgusting, and it had no appetite for him.

So fast! The Dark Demon Evil God Tiger charged at Gu Yi with unimaginable speed, its evil force corroding everything in its path. Gu Yi was hit before he could react.

Pain! Unbearable pain!

Gu Yi felt most of his ribs break, and his internal organs were also injured to some extent. But this wasn't the worst part—the real trouble was the evil force invading his body. Not only did it weaken his body, but it also made it difficult to control the energy of heaven and earth.

The Dark Demon Evil God Tiger didn't leave any room for its enemy to react, quickly closing in on the fallen Gu Yi.

Enduring the pain, Gu Yi dodged the Dark Demon Evil God Tiger's attack just in time. He had underestimated the Dark Demon Evil God Tiger's power.

Gu Yi diverted some of his strength to resist the evil force inside him while keeping an eye on the Dark Demon Evil God Tiger. The Dark Demon Evil God Tiger became cautious, moving carefully.

Gu Yi was in great danger.

Dugu Bo also hadn't anticipated the situation changing so rapidly or the spirit beast's power being so formidable.

"At this point, I should use special means," Gu Yi thought. With a single thought, he absorbed the surrounding energy into his body. The quantity and strength of the energy were unprecedented.

At this moment, Gu Yi didn't care whether his body could withstand it, he just swallowed it all. Blood spurted as a crack appeared on Gu Yi's body, and he bled from all seven orifices. His condition was terrifying.

"Is he crazy, absorbing such a massive amount of energy?" Dugu Bo couldn't understand why Gu Yi was doing this—it was self-destructive. No one could control such a vast amount of energy. Let alone Gu Yi, who was just a quasi-Spirit Emperor. Even though his power could reach the level of a Titled Douluo. It was impossible.

Energy from hundreds of miles around converged here.

The Dark Demon Evil God Tiger, ready to enjoy its prey, bristled with fear. Without hesitation, it turned and ran. The energy was too overwhelming.

Gu Yi remained unfazed, calmly raising the Killing Sword in his hand, and the astonishing sword energy formed a blood sword.

Dugu Bo's eyes widened, staring at the tens-of-meters-long blood sword, too shocked to speak. He didn't doubt that this move could kill him. Gu Yi had really managed to control the massive amount of energy and utilize it.

Dugu Bo began to understand why Gu Yi had such confidence.

"My sword is a hundred-meter-long, what's wrong with letting you run ninety-nine meters?" Gu Yi muttered as he watched the fleeing Dark Demon Evil Tiger and swung his sword. The surrounding trees were immediately destroyed, but the Dark Demon Evil God Tiger used its incredible speed to dodge to the right.

Not done yet. Gu Yi swung his sword horizontally, redirecting the sword energy towards the Dark Demon Evil Tiger.

With this change in direction, several dozen trees fell, and the area within tens of meters became clear ground. No matter how fast the Dark Demon Evil God Tiger was, it couldn't maintain that speed indefinitely.

Gu Yi's sword swing was equally fast.

The Dark Demon Evil God Tiger's eyes flashed with ferocity as it turned and charged at Gu Yi. Its Demongod hook transformed into a spike, and a gray protective shield covered its body.

It crossed nearly a hundred meters in the blink of an eye. Gu Yi's sword energy was able to hit it, instantly breaking the Dark Demon Evil God Tiger's protective shield.

Just as he was about to strike the killing blow, Gu Yi suddenly felt a powerful suction force that he couldn't resist even with his current strength.

He was directly sucked in.
