Section Eighteen: Divine Rank Expert
Chapter One: Chi vs Ling Bing
The archbishop Ling Bing was the highest ranking person in charge of Radiance Magus Church. Four hundred years ago, his battle with the last demon emperor had shocked the continent. More than a decade ago, the last demon emperor passed away. Right now, Radiance Magus Church reached their greatest era under his leadership.
Ling Bing was more than four hundred years old. He was near the limit of longevity as a magus scholar. If he did not have a breakthrough, after a dozen years or so, he would turn into dust just like many other magus scholars. But at this time, he managed to reach divine rank!
The news was a great blow to both Yun Qinghong and Aofeng.
Aofeng frowned slightly. During this last while, she had been too arrogant and lawless. She had not realized that some things in this world could not be predicted. This archbishop becoming divine ruined all her plans.
“Damn old man, not having a breakthrough for so long, and doing it now. Isn’t this having a joke with us!” The purple dragon’s expression was slightly dark. Originally, after reaching maturation stage, he and Yun Qinghong together would be able to fight the archbishop, but now, it was different.
Ling Bing reached divine rank, and his seven-star super-divine beast, the sacred unicorn, would definitely reach divine rank!
When their master broke through the barrier to divine rank, the increase in the magic beast was much greater than during the breakthrough for a celestial magister. The Radiance Magus Church had ruled the continent for so many years, and would not have less things than the Black Magus Church. The sacred unicorn had an extra word more than Jun Luoyu’s unicorn, but they were completely different levels. Once it matured, it would be a super-divine beast.
As Ling Bing leveled up, this magic beast slowly leveled up.
“Yinling, come out!”
The cold faced silver haired man shouted coldly. A giant silver seven pointed star appeared suddenly under his feet. The pure white divine power exploded. A beautiful woman with clean silver hair appeared beside the silver energy. She was covered in a holy and clean power, but her beautiful face was as cold as the archbishop.
Her presence was released but her level was unable to be detected. As expected, a divine rank magic beast!
“Divine rank magister, divine rank magic beast……” Yun Qinghong said softly. His eyes grew dark. Two divine ranks. Right now, he could not defeat them.
“You are very good. I did not think that the Black Magus Church would have a young person like you.” Ling Bing examined Yun Qinghong and the purple dragon, an odd look flashing through his eyes. “Very good, very good. A divine rank beast above divine prince level. Pity that you do not know how to bear. If you cultivated a few more decades and had your magic beast enter adult stage to reach divine king level, this archbishop would not be a match for you. But I will not give you such a chance. You have come to provoke the Radiance Magus Church at this time. You are fated to lose!”
“Ling Bing, do not be too proud! This emperor is not yet a divine king magic beast. Right now, we are not as good as you, but it will not be so easy for you to kill us!” The purple dragon’s proud purple eyes burned with anger. If he had truly matured, how could these two divine princes stand there in front of him?
“Zilong, do not say so much, go!” After thinking for a moment, Yun Qinghong gritted his teeth and made a decision. This archbishop had become divine. Lan Xiu was of no threat to him. If he wanted to kill anyone, he would not care about the Kaya Empire.
Also, for a divine rank expert, there were no rules to break. A divine rank expert was the rules. They were blindly respected by tens of thousands of people. Even if they were wrong, if they acted, people would flatter and elevate them. This was the rule of the strong in Luska.
The purple dragon was mentally connected to him. When he said “go,” the other had turned into a purple energy that fell on Yun Qinghong’s body, turning to fine purple armor. Yun Qinghong used this power to shoot out like an arrow from a bow!
Yun Qinghong had a plan. The person who killed Li Zhen in the end was him1. Also, he was the demon emperor of the Black Magus Church. Ling Bing would not miss this chance to uproot him. If he ran first, Aofeng and the others would not be in danger in the short term. Ling Bing could not split himself up. Without Yinling, he may not be able to catch up to the purple dragon.
His plan was good, but he never expected an accident on the way.
“Divine emperor level?” The woman called Yinling had a shocked look. As a magic beast, she knew how terrifying a divine emperor magic beast was. She turned to Ling Bing and said, “Master, we cannot spare them, otherwise, they will become great trouble!”
Ling Bing said coldly. He raised a hand. Burning white light shone. The man also became clad in silver armor. The grand silver divine prince rank magic beast armor was much more complex than normal armor. It was like a god had come to give chase to Yun Qinghong!
Below, Aofeng felt anxious.
She knew if the archbishop caught up to Yun Qinghong, the other could only die. Yun Qinghong’s actions were clearly telling her to flee quickly, but how could she ignore her comrade for her own life?
“Chi! Chi, can you hear me? I have encountered a very powerful divine rank expert. Will you be able to protect yourself facing him?” At this dangerous time, Aofeng could not care about too much, and said in her soul.
“Powerful divine rank expert? There are still divine ranks on the continent?” In his cultivation, Chi was startled awake, and a surprised voice came from her mind.
“Yes, he should have just entered divine rank. Also, he possesses a divine rank magic beast. Do you have confidence you can block him a bit and then flee with me? I have a friend being chased by him!” Aofeng was anxious but not panicked. She cared about Yun Qinghong’s life, but she would not have Chi die with her. If there was no chance at all, she could only search for another method.
“Just entered divine rank……” Chi paused and then answered, “I will try. But Aofeng, I must remind you, I can protect you, they cannot break through my defense, but I cannot win against them. If we are not able to flee, we may get caught.”
Chi understood Aofeng very well. She valued her friends greatly, and he could guess how she would answer.
Aofeng did not hesitate in nodding. “No problem!”
As long as they did not die, she would cultivate and fight back sooner or later.
“As expected of my partner, okay, let’s go!” Chi’s cold but excited voice came. Liking to fight was a part of being a magic beast. A fiery red five pointed star appeared under Aofeng’s feet. The two of them had made a lifebond covenant. Without needing Aofeng to summon him, Chi could freely move in and out of her magus beast space.
This took just a moment. Before Ling Bing could fly out of the venue, he heard a cold and arrogant voice shout behind him, “Little divine rank, stay!”
Red light flashed. Ling Bing looked back and saw a beautiful youth with red hair and red eyes fly up. The grand crescent earrings shown with light. The youth raised a single hand. “Crimson Blood God Sealing Wall!”
Ling Bing’s brows moved, and then his eyes widened. He took a step back, like a startled rabbit. His hunting movements stopped. He felt a terror from his soul, and instinctively reacted.
Under his feet right in front of him, a terrifying golden wall of fire shot up without any warning!
God Sealing Wall. It could seal a god.
If anyone dared to get close to this wall, they would turn to dust in a flash!
“Heaven Fire! Such a large amount of Heaven Fire!”
Ling Bing was very shocked. Heaven Fire was one of the most mysterious and powerful kinds of fire among celestial fires. The reason that he recognized this kind of flame was because in the main Radiance altar, there was a small burning Heaven Fire torch, called the Radiance Holy Torch. That little bit of Heaven Fire increased the speed that energies moved through the altar, and caused the speed of cultivation there to be many times faster than in the outside world.
People had come before to destroy the Radiance Holy Torch, but all of them were burned up by the Heaven Fire, including some high sword level magus scholars.
After interacting with Heaven Fire for many years, Ling Bing recognized it at a glance, and knew the power of the wall. He turned around, his heart slightly cold.
A youth clad entirely in red appeared in sight. Chi was so beautiful that even Yinling and the archbishop could not compare. Once he appeared, he received the attention of the crowd.
“So you are also a divine rank magic beast?” Ling Bing changed expressions. He looked at Chi and then at Aofeng behind him. His anger moved over completely, and he stopped chasing after Yun Qinghong.
A divine rank in the growth stage, then the adult stage would have power that would rival the purple dragon. Qin Aofeng’s threat potential was greater than Yun Qinghong!
Chi’s face was slightly pale. Each time he used his essential power to summon large amounts of heaven fire, he would be greatly impacted just like the first time he met Aofeng. However, if he did not use this move, he could not have stopped this archbishop, but it was a pity the other dodged.
“You do not qualify to know!” Chi sneered. He faced the archbishop directly, still fearless and domineering.
No one had ever spoken to Ling Bing in such a tone. His expression could not help but darken and he said angrily in a cold voice, “You want to die?”
Chi said coldly and confidently, “You are not able to kill me! The Crimson Blood’s defense is the strongest in the world. If you are able to break through, how shall I even live?”
Aofeng was exasperated by his arrogant and powerful attitude. Chi was probably the only one who dared to call himself the strongest in front of a divine prince who had a divine rank magic beast.
Ling Bing’s eyes flashed with cold furious light. He was not willing to waste a word. He suddenly raised his hand. The shadow of the unicorn appeared behind him. It was a divine rank expert’s magus beast technique! And he did not target Chi, but Aofeng, Chi’s master!
Once the master died, the magus beast would die, even a high ranking magus beast could not avoid going down a rank. At that time, he would not fear being unable to subdue the other.
Chi’s red eyes flashed with scorn and he laughed. “I just knew you would use this move. Your Radiance Magus Church has nothing good at all. You do not dare to even fight head on. However, you think you can kill my covenantor like this? Do you not underestimate me too much?”
As he finished speaking, Chi turned to red light that circled Aofeng like a spherical transparent red shield. Ling Bing’s magic technique formed in a light ray in the distance that charged right at Aofeng. The burning white power hit the red light shield hard!
