Princess Yin wanted to kill him, and she would not let up.
After she successfully repelled Wu Yu's attack with the Imperial Dragon Shield: Mystical Tortoise Rattles Hell, the eagerness she showed in killing him, and her stance - lifting the Imperial Insignia seraphic dao treasure high - convinced Wu Yu that she was going to use the Offensive Spirit Design in the Imperial Insignia to unleash the ultimate killing move with the strength of 790,000 spirit designs.
The goal was obviously to send Wu Yu to the next world.
Her icy, emotionless eyes were just as Wu Yu expected. This ninth princess had not changed from her youth - temperamental, barbaric, and with a petty need for vengeance.
All of this was fine by him. Wu Yu's own eyes were devoid of any fear of death. There was only a desire for that seraphic dao treasure.
Without many emotional ties to speak of, Wu Yu seldom initiated trouble. But in the face of danger, he was never one to hold back, right or wrong.
That was his dao.
"Die!" Princess Yin screeched. Her fury was towering. Both hands on the sword, the golden longsword rose to the sky. The golden, glass-like sword exploded with a blinding light!
"Heaven's Imperial Insignia: Immortal Slayer Strike!"
The final strike burst forth at the end. This Heaven's Imperial Insignia: Immortal Slayer Strike was the reason for the dao treasure's name. It was not just the roc dragon in command now, but the tortoise dragon's power was also added to the mix. Gold and black fused into one, and the black enclosed the gold within. The vague silhouettes of the roc dragon and tortoise dragon appeared in the skies, amidst a thick layer of golden and black clouds!
In the clouds, the 790,000 spirit designs turned. Suddenly, countless immortal palaces appeared in the sky, towering amidst the clouds. It seemed like a sky full of immortals stood there, overlooking the common people. Each immortal was chanting, and golden and black sword qi began to gather in the sky. Finally, all the clouds, immortal palaces, and immortals were consumed, materializing in a huge sword!
The huge sword had no hilt. A black sword core, anchored by a symbol of the tortoise dragon, and the keen, golden edges - it was an awesome and colossal sword of gold, with twin symbols of the roc dragon and tortoise dragon. They were represented in vivid and lifelike fashion, and there were many drawings of immortal palaces, just as realistic. As the Heaven's Imperial Insignia: Immortal Slayer Strike descended from above, it seemed like the entirety of the Sky Palaces were bearing down on Wu Yu!
This was called the Immortal Slayer Spirit Design. When it activated, the deadly power that it called forth was unstoppable. Wu Yu had underestimated his opponent, and now faced a terrible threat like never before!
However, Wu Yu's eyes, locked on to the incredible attack descending from the sky, were filled only with fervent passion. He was enamored by the strength! Perhaps at this time, he had already forgotten about his own survival!
"Admiring my Imperial Insignia? Pitiful. Many people long for the Imperial Insignia, but all those people are already dead souls that fell to this blade…" Princess Yin understood that the burning look in Wu Yu's eyes was pure desire to own the Imperial Insignia.
She did not find this surprising, but she did find it laughable. Because there were too many people like that, and all had fallen to a wretched end.
Therefore, she instead saw Wu Yu as pitiful. But even a pitiful worm had to be killed once she had made up her mind to do so!
"If others think that Prince Le is a rising legend, then killing Wu Yu will diminish that legend by 90%. Without Wu Yu, Prince Le is nothing!"
With this thought in mind, Princess Yin was feeling good. She moved lightly, and Heaven's Imperial Insignia: Immortal Slayer Strike fell like a comet. The punishing sword wielded by immortals reached Wu Yu with astonishing speed for its strength, threatening him with death!
The situation looked bleak from all angles. The power of the Imperial Insignia allowed Princess Yin to completely surpass her own cultivation level.
At the final movements, she saw the Infernal Sky Pillar transform into nine crucibles and then shift again into the Immovable Nine Palaces Design. He shrank within, intending to defend against this move with no other action. Princess Yin felt that he was too naive.
She had noticed that Wu Yu's white-haired, red-eyed Heaven Devouring Avatar was behind her, and the Dark North Royal Obelisk in its hand was a danger. But she naturally assumed that a clone was a clone. As long as she killed Wu Yu's real body, the clone would die as well.
What Wu Yu did not know was that the spectators outside, even those like the Oriental Flower Fairy from the Oriental Flower Immortal Realm, did not doubt his death. The entire Jambu Realm was communicating via Message Talismans, ready to convey news of Wu Yu's death.
Just as they had anticipated, the Heaven's Imperial Insignia: Immortal Slayer Strike clashed intensely against the Immovable Nine Palaces Design. At the same time, Wu Yu's Heaven Devouring Avatar unleashed the Heaven Swallowing 10,000 Rampaging Dragons Formation from the Dark North Royal Obelisk at Princess Yin. Princess Yin had to concentrate her full effort to unleashing the Heaven's Imperial Insignia: Immortal Slayer Strike on Wu Yu, and so could only deal with Wu Yu's avatar in a cursory fashion. After all, she still assumed that the clone was dependent on the real body. This held true for all the martial cultivators in the world, but the Heaven Devouring Avatar was different.
Logically, both were considered Wu Yu, and his real bodies. There was no main or subsidiary.
However, no one paid much attention to Wu Yu's Heaven Devouring Avatar. All eyes were on the main body. They saw the enormous Heaven's Imperial Insignia: Immortal Slayer Strike's keen edge clash against the Immovable Nine Palaces Design. The Immovable Nine Palaces Design seemed insignificant. Even with Wu Yu's stupendous strength holding it, the Immovable Nine Palaces Design continued to crumble. More importantly, the Infernal Sky Pillar was unable to hold on!
Wu Yu paid the price.
He saw a scene he was loath to see. The Immovable Nine Palaces Design was destroyed. This was no ordinary shattering of a spirit design. Rather, the entire Infernal Sky Pillar of Nine Fetters was completely smashed. This advanced dao treasure had been fundamentally destroyed by a stronger dao treasure, and the Infernal Sky Pillar of Nine Fetters no longer existed.
The power of the Heaven's Imperial Insignia: Immortal Slayer Strike was not significantly diminished either. It still had tremendous killing power, and it bore down on Wu Yu. In truth, the Violent Art had taken a lot out of Wu Yu, and this spirit design's attack was even stronger and faster than Imperial Dragon Sword: Golden Roc Covers the Sky. Wu Yu had not used the Somersault Cloud to escape at the start, and now it was too late.
He could have done so, but he had chosen not to. This was his breakthrough, and it demanded courage from him!
Invincible Vajra Body, Hexaworld Celestial King Buddha Body - since their creation, Wu Yu had not used them to the fullest.
He wanted to know - would he actually die? To a certain degree, he was already very far removed from death.
Of course, he had an intense faith in it because of how hard he had worked to reach this state, and because of the pride that the Great Sage, Heaven's Equal had inculcated in him. It was a part of his very being, a will that would never say die!
The golden Immortal Ape was completely swallowed by the Heaven's Imperial Insignia: Immortal Slayer Strike!
Everyone lamented the death of a spectacular talent like Wu Yu. Princess Yin was vicious as well. She completely ignored Wu Yu's attack, accepting a pyrrhic victory. She intended to kill Wu Yu, and she was confident that her full effort would destroy even a seventh tier Dao Querying cultivator!
Besides, Wu Yu's Infernal Sky Pillar dao treasure had been thoroughly destroyed.
The fragments of the once-dao treasure drifted through the air. Wu Yu regretted it deeply. He clenched his jaw, fueled by an unparalleled pride and dignity. He did not collapse. His Hexaworld Celestial King Buddha Body's physical body worlds fell layer after layer, unable to regenerate in time. But in his eyes, there was only a burning flame and an infinite faith.
"Go to hell!" Princess Yin had an expectation of when Wu Yu would be completely destroyed, and that time had passed. She thought that Wu Yu would fall within 10 breaths of time, but he still continued to hold on. As Wu Yu died and was reborn over and over again, unable to be completely vanquished, the smile on her face became rigid.
"Are you a tortoise?! Why won't you die!?" Princess Yin started to panic. This had far exceeded the time she had estimated, and still he was not dead. Although she was still confident that she could kill Wu Yu, she had taken too much time.
As for those outside, they could not see clearly, and they assumed that Wu Yu had already died.
"We can go back to the dragon palace. It's over," the Shackled-God Rogue Dragon said again from behind Luo Pin.
She ignored him, her eyes fixed on the mirror. She could not see clearly amidst the chaotic sword qi, but she was not frowning. She knew Wu Yu well, and knew that he knew himself well, and what his limits were.
After Princess Yin shrieked her question at him, his laughter rang out from within the sword qi. "An old hag like you isn't even dead yet, and still posing as a nubile girl. How could a nubile guy like me die before you?"
His tone was collected and mild, but it was precisely this tone that instilled an unprecedented fear and dread in Princess Yin. She had focused all her energy on killing Wu Yu, but he was still not dead. When she turned back, an inky-black frost had swallowed her up. Black dragons circled her, and everything in a radius of one kilometer around her turned to black frost.
