“Just forfeit the match, I must say that I still can’t fully control my power,” Asha’ruiya stared at Mu Ningxue. She was talking to Mu Ningxue, and Mo Fan at the same time.
Despite her grudge against Mo Fan, they were still in the middle of a tournament. She did not want to inflict incurable damage on her opponents, since the Shadow Element was not any gentler than the Curse Element!
Mo Fan came out from his shadow. He was astounded by the dark energy circling Asha’ruiya.
As he thought, the woman had such an extraordinary background, and surely had some sort of terrifying trump card. If the dark energy poured into her, it would make her as strong as the Dark Swordmaster. Her strength would be almost comparable to a Ruler-level creature. Even if it could only last for a minute, it was enough to eliminate them!
“Xuexue, forget it…” Mo Fan glanced at Mu Ningxue and let out a sigh.
If the organizer allowed the participants to use such power, the ranking of the tournament would be utterly meaningless.
Mo Fan had already tried his best. He could not use his trump card just because Asha’ruiya was using a piece of outstanding magic Equipment to accumulate the dark energy. The Demon Element was not meant to be used in a tournament, it was meant to be used against the Black Vatican. Mo Fan was very clear on that…
As for the ranking, the Chinese team should come second or third in the tournament still. It was a lot better than their expectation.
Asha’ruiya’s aura weakened slightly. She could tell that Mo Fan had decided to give up. It was meaningless to provoke them any further…
She glanced at Mu Ningxue. Somehow, she felt that Mu Ningxue was reluctant to give up still. Mu Ningxue desperately needed the tournament to prove herself, to scrub away the burden that she was forced to carry.
“Mo Fan, you should leave first,” Mu Ningxue did not listen to Mo Fan’s suggestion. She sounded firm and determined!
“Don’t do it, it’s meaningless,” Mo Fan advised against it.
“But this is very important to me!” Mu Ningxue had no intention of forfeiting the match.
If Asha’ruiya was allowed to accumulate the dark energy that was clearly beyond the level of the tournament with her magic Equipment, why couldn’t she be allowed to use her Ice Crystal Bow?
The Ice Magic in the area had been depleted, as darkness had completely dominated it. However, as Mu Ningxue raised her hand and summoned the Ice Crystal Bow deep inside her soul, the depleted Ice Magic suddenly returned and reclaimed its territory!
The Nirvana Ice Domain appeared once again, and was even stronger than before. The ice crystals were like dust particles, gathering on Mu Ningxue’s palm, and gradually took the shape of an icy, crystalline bow. The bow summoned strong winds that turned into a great storm surging across the spacious battlefield.
The howls of the icy winds sent chills down the spines of the spectators who were not Mages. It was like a great storm formed by nature was within inches of them!
The snowy-white storm and Asha’ruiya’s dark tornado claimed their respective territories, like two armies facing one another. The rest of the Elements could no longer find any space in the area!
Asha’ruiya was granted the power of darkness. Pieces of armor covered in a dark light and emitting an evil aura attached to her body. She had claimed the imposing aura of the Dark Swordmaster.
She waved the sword in her hand slightly, the sword intent spreading in all directions like thousands of flying moths. It was utterly spectacular, and dangerous!
On the other hand, Mu Ningxue’s crystal arrow slowly took shape, held firmly between her index and middle fingers. White frost was dancing wildly around her. Her glamorous face displayed an unyielding determination!
Mo Fan had a strong urge to stop the fight…
Mu Ningxue had already used the Ice Crystal Bow during the treasure hunt. It was quite obvious that the attack was executed at an excessive cost to her stamina and energy. In other words, she was trading her life for the chance to use the Ice Crystal Bow.
Mu Ningxue was using the power that she could not control once again. Even though it would not endanger her life, she would still be tortured by the frost every night for a long time!
It was really not worth it…
However, it was Mu Ningxue’s choice, unless Mo Fan crept up on her and knocked her out before the attack overdrew the energy of the body…
If he did that, Mu Ningxue would surely hate him for the rest of her life.
The darkness and the frost continued to grow stronger. Mu Ningxue was aiming the arrow right at Asha’ruiya. The fierce storm was only just the beginning. The real power that could freeze anything to death was contained inside the arrow!
Asha’ruiya was surprised by the power that was on an equal footing as hers. She looked extremely serious now.
If it had come down to this, it was necessary for the darkness and frost to decide who the winner was!
Asha’ruiya raised the sword, emitting an icy, deathly glow. She stored the dark energy inside the sword and fixed her eyes on Mu Ningxue.
“The Dawnbreaker of Darkness!”
As the sword slashed forward, the sky turned dark instantly, yet it felt like a glimpse of daybreak was tearing through it. It was long, sharp, and fast, and the light was icy cold. It did not bring hope like daybreak would, but the despair and hopelessness of an era of darkness!
It was impossible to dodge the attack. The slash did not have a trail, nor was it coming from a certain angle or direction. It would strike the target it was locking onto. Even the Super Mages gasped after realizing how powerful the slash was!
“Arrow of Silence!”
With a soft thrum, the crystalline arrow was fired, followed by a great storm that shook the sky and the ground as it surged forward. It felt like the confined space would collapse at any second!
The storm was powerful and huge, yet completely silent. Everything was turned into ice as the arrow flew past. Even the dark energy had frozen, and was drifting in the air like a mist!
The Arrow of Silence and the Sword Glow of Dawnbreak were incredibly fast. They swept past half the battlefield in the blink of an eye, but neither made a single noise. It was so quiet, as if everything was dead and still…
The arrow was shattered in the light produced by the sword. The light of the sword was also dissipated by the power of the arrow. The darkness looming over the battlefield immediately cleared up, while the ice covering the place melted instantly as if it was never there!
When the crowd thought the two powerful attacks had nullified one another, a white light flickered in the center of the battlefield. A terrifying explosion took place, and strong winds blasted in all directions!
It was impossible to tell where the energy had come from. It was more like black winds and black icy blades, shredding the trees into pieces. Not even the stumps were left. The river at the center turned into pitch-black ice and went still. The rocks and mountains were chewed up beyond recognition, and the cliffs surrounding the battlefield were left with scratches and marks all over them!
Luckily, the overwhelming energy did not rise any further. Otherwise, the people watching the match on the cliffs might be in danger…
The battlefield was the size of a district in a town. If the two powers had collided in a city, every structure in it would be razed to the ground. To think that such destructive powers were produced by two beautiful women. It was absolutely unbelievable!
The place remained silent for a long time, as if everything was frozen by the ice and darkness.
On the destroyed battlefield, Asha’ruiya was still standing firmly in her black armor. She had taken off the silver mask, revealing her stern face. It was nothing like the alluring expression she usually had.
A few snowflakes were circling Mu Ningxue, setting off her unique icy charm. She looked at Asha’ruiya, who was perfectly unharmed. Her face was incredibly pale.
She was still holding the ice crystal bow. If she needed to fire another arrow to win the match, she had no idea what would happen to her.
This Saintess of the Parthenon Temple also possessed a power that was beyond her cultivation. As she thought, she was not the only special person in this world!
“You win!” Asha’ruiya suddenly conceded.
Mu Ningxue was stunned. She was wondering if she had heard it wrong.
Asha’ruiya did not repeat her words . She put her sword away and headed toward the exit.
Her steps were light, and the cold, black armor on her slowly disappeared as a puff of black smoke. She threw the silver mask onto the ground too, and it soon melted.
Asha’ruiya reached the edge of the battlefield and walked past Mo Fan. She finally lifted her gaze and glanced at Mo Fan, who was utterly confused too.
Mo Fan had no clue what was going on. It was obvious that the two were on an equal footing. If Asha’ruiya chose to fight further, the outcome was still unpredictable… unless Asha’ruiya could not use her power any longer, meaning that the slash was already her limit.
The truth was, it was unlikely that Mu Ningxue could fire the arrow a second time!
Mo Fan noticed Asha’ruiya staring at him coldly. Her eyes still had the imposing aura of the Dark Swordmaster. Any other person might be panicking by now, but Mo Fan, who had slain a Dark Swordmaster before, was not intimidated by the aura.
“You owe me one,” Asha’ruiya icy expression was suddenly replaced by a naughty grin, as if the girl next door he had offended had suddenly come up with an evil plan to get her revenge, making him feel uneasy.
“What do you mean by that?” Mo Fan asked.
“If I don’t lower my sword, she won’t lower her bow, either; but if she doesn’t lower her bow, she will lose her life. She’s not willing to give up, so I was left with no choice, but you owe me one, understand?” Asha’ruiya smiled, reclaiming her vixen temperament.
“You’re at your limit, too,” Mo Fan said.
“Then I’ll go back there and continue the fight, and see who’s going to be the last person standing…” Asha’ruiya pretended she was going back. She had yet to leave the match officially, as she was only disqualified after crossing the line.
“You win, I owe you one,” Mo Fan said helplessly.
“You seem to care a lot about her?” Asha’ruiya asked, intrigued.
“She’s my first wife.”
Asha’ruiya had never seen anyone so straightforward and shameless!
