Chapter 531: 531
Xue Wei was aware that his words had enraged the ghost, but that was his aim . He understood that these ghosts were not going to let him go, no matter what he did, so he might as well try and make them enraged in the hope that they might slip up easier that way .
Lan, who had been resting on his shoulder, slowly flapped his four wings before he shot out like a dart and attacked one of the approaching men . The speed was outstanding . Even though his powers were sealed, the mingshe always had an incredible agility and speed, causing it to be near impossible to catch .
Xue Wei also decided not to fight with all he had, apart from his original shape . He was aware that if he transformed in front of so many observers, quite a few would be able to deduce his identity as a living being . Beasts were, after all, not a thing in this ghost realm .
The Qi which gathered on Xue Wei’s hand had a jade-like luster . It was beautiful and alluring, the color attracted the attention of the ghost which they were fighting against, and a strange fear crept up in his heart .
He did not know what this energy was, but there was an innate fear in his heart telling him that even if this man was weaker than him, the green energy would be able to cause him quite a sizable amount of pain .
Seeing the hesitating eyes of the advancing ghost, Xue Wei sneered . This was precisely what he had been looking for, but he had other trump cards than the wood elemental affinity .
There was an element that was even better at fighting ghosts and anything else that had been stained by death .
Lightning and thunder were the natural bane of these yin elemental creatures, and Xue Wei had planned to use almost anything at his disposal to defeat these ghosts .
While he would not be able to hide his identity if he turned into an Azure Dragon or a Vermilion Bird in the middle of the street, he could still claim that the elemental affinities were something he had gained through a fortunate encounter .
As the wood elemental Qi was gathering on Xue Wei’s palm, he began unleashing another attack .
Nine Sky Judgment!
This was a technique he had come across in the Ascended’s Realm . It was yet another skill that copied the tribulation lightning, but due to the nature of this skill, it was not one which one needed to be channeled . Instead, it gathered nine lightning bolts into one and struck the target .
As soon as Xue Wei had unleashed the technique, the clapping sound of thunder rang in the street, and everyone was blinded by the sudden lightning bolt that descended straight onto the ghost which was rushing towards Xue Wei .
Because this ghost had been too cautious about the Wood Elemental Qi on Xue Wei’s palm, he did not have the time to protect his body against the lightning bolt, and the sudden feeling of pain caused the ghost to shriek in agony .
The lightning was wreaking havoc in his body . It was attempting to purge the death energy, but this was a ghost, and his entire body was created from spirit energy, which was reaped and harvested from other dead souls .
It was impossible to eliminate all the energy without ending his life . Unfortunately, the lightning was extremely stubborn . It was not willing to give up and continued to destroy anything that was near it, resulting in unbearable pain for the ghost .
However, his strength was not just there for show . Although the pain, which was so intense that he felt as if he could die, was running rampant in his body, he gritted his teeth and glared at Xue Wei .
He would make this young man experience pain so gruesome that he would wish that he had died .
Their boss had said to bring him alive, but he had not mentioned what state he had to be in . As such, no one would blame him for cutting off his limbs, torturing him until only the last breath remained . He had to vent the pain that he was feeling now .
It was unfortunate that this was not going as he had planned . Xue Wie could see the malice in the ghost’s eyes and knew that he would be in dire straits if he did not win, so he instantly summoned more lightning .

Xue Wei cast the same ability thrice . He was using up the lightning elemental Qi without worrying about what to do when it ran out . The reason for this was quite simple; he understood that if he hesitated, then he would not only drag himself down, he would also harm Lan .
Not to mention, he had a rather sizable amount of treasures in his storage treasure, amongst them were some pills and resources which could help him restore elemental Qi in a shorter period of time .
This Ghost Realm was suitable for cultivating pure Qi with heaven and earth essence, but it was devoid of elemental energy .
If Xue Wei wanted to cultivate his elemental affinities, he would have to depend entirely on the resources he had brought with him into the realm . Even restoring it was also fully dependent on the energy within the storage treasure, as he could find none of what he needed in the air .
Realizing this, Xue Wei could not help but feel grateful that the air was full of heaven and earth essence . If this had not even been here, then how would he have been able to restore his Qi after each confrontation?
