Chapter 987 – Advancing to tenth rank (2)
The lightning trial rumbled as it struck down .
Those black-clothed people that were originally headed for Su Luo, how could they still dare to take even half a step forward?
The crackling and rattling of the thunderous lightning resounded endlessly .
Suddenly, a lightning strike hit a black-clothed person . Immediately, that black-clothed person, along with his black clothes, was completely scorched, turning into greenish-black smoke which then drifted away .
The group of black-clothed people there were at least several dozen of them .
These were all Fairy Yan Xia's most highly-regarded subordinates . None of their strength was weak .
However, under these lightning strikes that attacked without discrimination, every one of them was struck and scorched black, then turned into greenish-black smoke .
The screams of the black-clothed people when they were at death's door mixed with the incessantly rumbling of the thunderous lightning . Between heaven and earth was similar to purgatory, with the crying of wolves and bawling of ghosts, intensely mournful .
Nangong Liuyun was outwardly kind but inwardly evil .
Long beforehand, he had already planned everything out . He had already placed the lightning protection bead on Su Luo's body .
The lightning-protection bead—a treasure that lightning element mages yearned for even in their dreams .
In the entire continent, only the Lord of Purgatory City had it .
The lightning protection bead that Nangong Liuyun possessed was exactly the treasure the Lord of Purgatory City had .
He was Nangong Liuyun's teacher .
This was the breakthrough tool he had used when he was promoted to the tenth rank . So, he gave the lightning protection bead to Nangong Liuyun hoping it could protect his life during his promotion .
However, he never imagined that Nangong Liuyun would give the lightning protection bead to his most beloved woman .
Thunder and lightning were rolling all around .
Ten thousand purple rays of light illuminated the heaven and earth until it was as bright as daytime .
Fairy Yan Xia continuously used her spirit powers and martial arts, attempting to hold back the attacking lightning strikes .
There was a unique feature for the tenth rank's robbery trial .
The higher the level of the subject, the stronger the lightning will be .
If Nangong Liuyun was an ordinary person, the lightning trial wouldn't be this strong .
If Nangong Liuyun didn't cultivate in the lightning element, the lightning wouldn't be this strong either .
If Nangong Liuyun hadn't been endowed with unusual innate skills, rarely seen in ancient and modern times, the thunderous lightning trial wouldn't be this strong either .
However, these three points, Nangong Liuyun had them all!
So, today's lightning trial simply had the most lightning in history!
The sea of thunder rolled on, resounding continuously .
Under the rolling sea of thunderous lightning, nothing existed between the heavens and earth anymore .
At this time, Fairy Yan Xia cut an unprecedentedly sorry figure .
Her hair that was originally meticulous, was now either severed by lightning or was sticking straight up by the electricity of the thunderous lightning .
That black cloak was so tattered that it barely covered her body .
The most frightening thing was that it was still raining .
The rain could conduct electricity!
So, Fairy Yan Xia's body crackled and rattled incessantly, with sparks flying in all directions, like fireworks that had been set off .
If Fairy Yan Xia's body was in its best condition, she might still have a chance to escape .
However, previously, she had been injured by the little stone, and the injuries on her body hadn't healed yet . This time, she also encountered an unprecedented lightning trial, and during the trial, there was also heavy torrential rain!
All of this was was like a demonic hand dragging Fairy Yan Xia into the abyss of hell .
The thunderstorm was endless .
Don't know how many thousand-year-old ancient trees were destroyed .
Don't know how many magical beasts were struck and scorched .
The lightning element divided heaven and earth .
Nangong Liuyun had both his legs crossed as he sat and continuously absorbed the lightning elements .
As for the lightning trial that was originally supposed to strike his body, he naturally had Fairy Yan Xia to obstruct it .
Even though it was like this, Nangong Liuyun wasn't entirely without injury .
If he had the lightning-protection bead, Nangong Liuyun would naturally be able to avoid the lightning safely and without any injury .
However, at present, he could only stiffly bear the violent pain that came when the scorching lightning struck his body .
A thunderous lightning struck Nangong Liuyun's back .
Nangong Liuyun only felt that there was something sweet in his throat, and a mouthful of blood sprayed out .
Yet another lightning bolt had smashed down heavily!
