Chapter 533: 533
The pure Lightning Elemental Qi was able to cause damage to the ghost . The mist that had started to rise from his body was getting much denser, and the spirit energy that his body was created from was getting weaker and weaker .
Although his strength was receding, it was happening so slowly that his cultivation level was not dropping, and the fight was starting to cause a lot of trouble for Xue Wei .
He had to be grateful that this Lightning Qi was causing pain to the ghost, and that it made the opponent somewhat apprehensive; however, he had to be realistic .
Defeating this ghost was not a possibility . The gap between their ranks was simply too overwhelming, and while he could put up a struggle, he was not able to turn the battle around . It already took all his capabilities just to stay alive; how could he turn it around?
But he was not willing to give up . A cruel and ruthless expression surfaced on his face, and he ramped up the intensity of the lightning elemental Qi that was infused in his attacks .
This did, indeed, cause the ghost to step back and grit his teeth in discomfort . He was feeling pain all over his body, and it distracted him from being able to focus entirely on the fight at hand .
Xue Wei was used to pain sharpening his senses . He had experienced much suffering throughout the years, and the pain had been used to hone his senses .
This ghost, on the other hand, had not experienced any real setback for a long time . Ghosts were quite peculiar . They did not experience much pain throughout their lives, because if they reached the point where they were to be injured, their lives would likely end, and they would not be able to later reminiscence about the experience .
Xue Wei was unaware of this fact . He had initially used the wood and lightning elemental Qi to cause some severe damage to the ghost, but upon noticing that it did not do much damage, he had felt dejected .
However, after observing for some time, he had found that although the damage done was not enough to truly harm the ghost, it was capable of impeding him from fighting smoothly .
The battle between Xue Wei and the ghost had been at a stalemate before, but now that he had increased the amount of elemental Qi he was using, he held a slight upper hand .
This upper hand was not really significant, as it came from the unconscious fear of pain that the Ghost had, and if he was pressured too far, he would explode with his full potential to completely ignore the pain and take down Xue Wei .
Another worry was that Xue Wei could feel that the elemental Qi within his body was being depleted rapidly .
While he would be able to restore the Qi after a certain amount of rest, it would run out within a relatively short time if things kept going as they were now .
When the Wood and Lightning Elemental Qi ran out, how would he then be able to withstand the attack of the ghost?
Xue Wei was considering his options . He glanced at Lan, and when he noticed that the arrogant little four-winged snake was doing well, he heaved a heavy sigh of relief .
Lan looked back at Xue Wei . He observed the situation throughout the battle, and he knew that Xue Wei was reaching his limits .
From the beginning, neither he nor Xue Wei had any hope of defeating their opponents . However, Lan had not created a chance to escape so far, as Xue Wei had been able to hold his stance .
Now that things were different, it was only normal to stop trying their hands against a group of ghosts, and Lan’s body suddenly swelled to an unimaginable size .
The majestic white wings flapped in the air, sending gales of wind rushing through the road .
The big silver eyes were coldly staring at the three ghosts in front of him as if he could easily crush them with the sheer size of his body .
The blue scales were as illustrious as a pearl and as beautiful as the summer sky .
Xue Wei’s dragon form was azure, while Lan’s was blue . The azure color was darker than the color of Lan . His was almost a sky blue shade, which caused one to feel tranquil upon witnessing it .
The mingshe was, generally, a very calm and gentle beast . However, Lan’s nature had long since been molded and changed by the passing of time .
While he was still gentle towards those whom he deemed important to him, he had learned to leave others alone . He had even come to the point where he was willing to be ruthless to anyone who threatened his peace .
Since Lan had accepted Xue Wei, this mingshe wanted to help him as much as possible with advancing . While Xue Wei was still not completely sure of what his identity as the Holy Son meant to the Sovereign Beasts, Lan was aware of the cruelty involved .
He could naturally interfere, but he also knew Xue Wei’s personality . Since he had said that he would return to the Chang’an Continent after fifty years, at most, to marry Wang Xiaoyun, he would naturally also wish to change the continent along the way and bring peace .
With his current strength, this was merely wishful thinking, so training was in order . These ghosts in front of them were extremely suitable training partners .
However, now that he could no longer hang on, Lan had erupted with his stored up power, and caused such a panic that it allowed the two of them to escape amongst the uproar .
The three ghosts had been completely fooled by their two opponents .
