The Chronicles of the Immortal God - Chapter 366
Chapter 366: DSD
“Why are you so surprised?” Beleth murmured as he saw Fang Yu’s expression. “You are clearly not versed in the ways of a martial artist, yet you also possess a martial aura.”
“…….” Fang Yu was currently donning the Red Martial Aura, which was inevitably noticed by Beleth.
“I do not know how you got that martial aura of yours, but I can assure you that I obtained my martial aura through pure training alone.” Beleth said proudly as he showed off his golden aura.
“Of course with the injuries I incurred from the Goddess’ attack, the current power of my Golden Martial Aura was limited.”
“But, it will be enough to deal with you.”
“Well, since you seem to like to chatter while fighting, why don’t you also tell me how your martial aura works?” Fang Yu asked cheekily.
“Well, instead of ‘telling’ you how my martial aura works, I think making you ‘feel’ it will be better.” Beleth said as he raised his right hand.
“Boom!” Fang Yu suddenly sensed danger quickly approaching her. She jumped back, managing to dodge the attack barely.
“Fizz….” Fang Yu felt her skin prickling, as she realized what the attack was.
It was a thin golden beam, something that shot out of Beleth’s right index finger.
“Oh, that was just a probing attack, nothing special about that.” Beleth said gleefully as waved his hands around. “My next attacks won’t be that merciful though.”
“S**t!” From the way that Beleth attacked earlier, Fang Yu was able to slightly deduce what ability Beleth got from his Golden Martial Aura.
From the looks of it, the Golden Martial Aura provided Beleth an access to a type of powerful Golden Energy.
As for how this Golden Energy worked, Fang Yu was not yet sure.
But she was sure that it was in some way, able to raise Beleth’s fighting prowess dramatically.
“So I have to make myself the guinea pig again…..”
If Fang Yu wanted to know how this Golden Energy works, then she had to see more and more of Beleth’s use of it.
But that means Fang Yu had to allow Beleth to continue attacking her.
“I will just do my best to survive then….” Fang Yu increased her focus to the limits as she decided on what to do.
Fang Yu will observe each of Beleth’s attack with the Golden Energy, and she must do her best to survive until she gathers enough information!
As for how long her observation will last, Fang Yu wished that it will be as short as possible.
“Pyu pyu pyu.”
All the tips of Beleth’s fingers glowed as each shot out their own thin golden beams.
These 10 golden beams weaved and wandered through the Mist Room as if they had life of their own. Some travelled curved paths while some even zigzagged!
Because of these movements, the golden beams approached Fang Yu from different angles all at the same time! Each of the golden beams glowed sinisterly as they bore upon the trapped Fang Yu!
“What the! These golden beams can move like this? Are they really just golden beams? F**k, Beleth really wants to skewer me right now!”
“Tsk!” Fang Yu closed her eyes, as she attempted something new.
Instead of just using the Ghost Form on her whole body, Fang Yu localized its effects.
This means that she only used the Ghost Form on selected parts of her body.
By doing this, Fang Yu can reduce the burden of using the Ghost Form, meaning she can still use it later.
Of course at that point, Fang Yu still had to localize her ability.
“Pyu pyu pyu.”
All the 10 golden beams pierced Fang Yu, with 3 on her head, 2 on her legs, and 5 on her torso.
But Beleth did not feel any feedback as all the beams passed through Fang Yu as if she was just a mirage.
“Yes, I did it!”
It took her intense concentration, but she managed to pinpoint where the 10 golden beams will hit her, and before they pierced her body, she turned these spots ethereal with her ghost form.
“You, your fighting skills evolved once more.” Beleth, with his sharp eyes, managed to see that Fang Yu just pulled of a risky move.
“It’s all thanks to you, Golden Beleth.” Fang Yu replied as she hobbled on one foot. Because of the difficulty of what she did earlier, Fang Yu messed up with one spot in her left foot, which allowed a golden beam to pierce it.
That spot on her left foot offered no resistance as the golden beam pierced right through it. It was just like a knife passing through butter, but the knife this time was a golden projectile weapon.
“But you still failed to guard one strike.” Beleth sneered, seeing the hole on Fang Yu’s left foot. “Seems like I just have to use more of these beams then.”
“Tsk.” With her foot pierced by that golden beam, Fang Yu realized that this beam had a powerful piercing property, something that allowed it to easily penetrate Fang Yu.
“Piercing?” Fang Yu mouthed out as she stared at Beleth’s silhouette.
Now that she could see it, she could feel that Beleth’s whole body seemed to be extremely sharp and unstoppable right now.
“Oh so that’s it….. ” With her innate affinity with Duality, Fang Yu was able to pinpoint the power of Beleth’s Golden Beam.
The Beleth that Fang Yu faced earlier had two properties: One, is that he fights in close range and second, all his attacks were blunt and heavy.
Fang Yu knew that Beleth was not satisfied with his. If Beleth wants to be a better fighter, then he must find a way to balance his fighting abilities.
That is where his Golden Martial Aura comes.
What Beleth lacked in his normal form, the Golden Martial Aura provides.
If the normal Beleth was close-ranged, then his Golden Martial Aura must give him long-range abilities.
If the normal Beleth uses blunt and heavy attacks, then his Golden Martial Aura must grant him attacks with piercing abilities.
This observation of Fang Yu coincided with what Fang Yu felt when the golden beam pierced her leg.
“Hmmm…” Fang Yu muttered as she stared at Beleth who was above her.
“Close-range and long-range, heavy and light, blunt and piercing. These abilities follow the principles of balance and duality, and you knew that you will only be a powerful warrior if you have these qualities! Your Golden Martial Aura allowed you to be that kind of warrior!”
Beleth paused, as he gave another praising look to Fang Yu.
“So you even managed to uncover what my Golden Martial Aura does with just one hit? You really are impressive. This just makes me want to kill you more.”
These words by Beleth managed to confirm Fang Yu’s findings, and that was:
Beleth’s Golden Martial Aura gives Beleth the ability to use long-range abilities and piercing attacks!
Pair that with his powerful close-range abilities and heavy strikes, and he seems to be unstoppable!
After all, how could someone find a way to defend from someone who can attack from different ranges, and attack in different ways?
No wonder Beleth was suppressing his Golden Martial Aura earlier. If he just used it at the start, then most of his enemies will be easily defeated by him.
For a fighter like Beleth, that won’t be fun at all.
And as for Fang Yu, she was about to experience the fate of someone facing the full-powered Beleth.
“Get wrecked!” Beleth growled as he let loose more attacks against Fang Yu.
This time, what came were not just golden beams.
Beleth manipulated his attack so that he can conjure countless weapons with varying shapes.
Axe, sword, spears, Beleth’s Golden Energy took this shape as they rushed towards Fang Yu.
Fang Yu sweated inwardly, as she imagined she was facing a powerful golden army right now!
“I must relocate first!” Fang Yu activated her teleportation, right before some of the weapons hit her.
She managed to dodge them, but someone already knew her actions.
“Behind you.” Fang Yu paused as she looked behind her.
There, she saw Beleth looking at her with derision.
“Guh!” Fang Yu felt pain in her stomach as she saw Beleth’s left arm stabbed on it.
Beleth’s left arm was covered with the Golden Energy, turning it to a blade that easily penetrated Fang Yu’s body.
“So you anticipated my move…” Fang Yu said as blood dripped out of her mouth. “You must have guessed my plans to teleport…..”
“You are right.” Beleth said as he twisted his arm blade inside Fang Yu.
“I just have to create a scenario where you will have no choice but to dodge.” Beleth said as he plunged his arm deeper. “Since you can slow down time, I have to make sure that even if you slow down my golden energy attacks, you will have no space left to move. Once that happens, you will have no choice but to teleport.”
“And I will attack you the instant that you teleported.” Beleth concluded his speech with finality in his voice..
“Aside from piercing and long-range attacks, my Golden Martial Aura also improved my speed as my body could now pierce through space itself, allowing my movements to be quicker. It’s your bad luck to encounter someone like me.”
While Beleth was talking nonchalantly like this, Fang Yu felt her body turning colder and colder.
Out of al the Djinns she fought today, it was Beleth who managed to inflict the most serious wounds on her.
It was so serious that Fang Yu knew that if she did not do anything, she will die.
But what can Fang Yu do against someone like Beleth?
“Do you think I am done for right now?” Fang Yu said slowly as the aura in her body began to change.
Earlier, it was mild and feeble as Fang Yu was about to die.
Bur right now, the ferocity and intensity in her aura continued to rise as Fang Yu’s eyes began to change appearance.
The appearance of her eyes changed, turning into two black orbs.
Beleth, who saw this change, felt that he must not let Fang Yu continued with what she was doing.
He raised his right arm, which he also changed to a golden blade.
He slashed his arm down, with its target as Fang Yu’s head!
Fang Yu’s will surely die once this arm reaches her head.
After her breakthrough to the Third Stage, Fang Yu supposedly acquired a new bloodline ability for her Duality Godly Divine Beast Bloodline. But due to some issues, she was only able to fully comprehend this ability before her match with Beleth.
The timing of this couldn’t be greater, as this was only Fang Yu’s chance to survive.
Fang Yu’s blank eyes shimmered as she slowly uttered,
“Dual Soul Domain!”
