No one could stay cool while looking at Shihua’s face . Nevertheless, he didn’t care at all .
At his power level, he could easily change his face but chose against doing so, seemingly content with it . Perhaps their reaction justified his title of Heavenrend Viper .
“I’ll have to display my slight skill then . ” Shihua looked at Li Qiye and said .
He wore a solemn expression, clearly needing to use his ultimate move . Of course, the price of using a move like this would be substantial .
“Boom!” Black smoke oozed from him and shrouded the sky . Anything touched by this smoke would decay instantly . It seemed to be a powerful poison that came and went quickly, revealing Shihua’s true form . The earlier appearance was still his humanoid shape .
A large head the size of a mountain appeared in the sky, a stark contrast to his tiny body . Upon careful inspection, it was the same proportion as a tadpole, just countless times more terrifying .
The head had three long black horns, fully covered with red scales . The rows of teeth grew much longer, no different from swords emitting their sharp glint .
“Buzz . ” He spewed out a terrible light . Each strand was full of death and nothing could escape . They would slowly disperse into nothingness .
“Old Wang, Iet me help you!” Mu Shaochen shouted and instantly jumped on Wang Shihua’s head . The two resembled a whale and a sharksucker .
“Boom!” Mu Shaochen became radiant and sent down laws . Everyone felt him absorbing the power of the world .
As he continued this absorption process, he channeled the power to Wang Shihua . Shaochen acted as a bridge for Shihua and the world . Through him, Shihua was able to grasp this power .
“They’re borrowing the power of Vermillion . ” People were rightfully startled with their eyes wide open, watching Shaochen’s incredible feat .
Not to mention outsiders, even the disciples of a system couldn’t borrow or control this power . Only those who have a deep understanding of their progenitor’s dao could do so .
However, Shaochen was certainly an outsider and he hasn’t been here that long . Nevertheless, he was proving everyone wrong with his amazing comprehension .
“Just a tiny part of this power, but his talent is peerless . ” Even the ancestors from Vermillion were amazed .
Shaochen actually had a better understanding of this grand dao than these ancestors . All other geniuses couldn’t reach the apex compared to him .
Though this was only a small portion, just imagine how large Vermillion was . It was a leading power of Myriad, so this vast land contained a massive amount of energy just like an ocean .
“Boom!” Shihua was strong enough but with Shaochen’s help, his might soared to a different level .
It only took a flash before divine rings rotated around Shihua with a metallic shade, acting as independent worlds . Just like that, they possessed an endless weight, capable of crushing the firmaments and gods .
“Get ready, here is my ultimate move!” He roared and opened his mouth, seemingly opening a floodgate with a loud bang .
The world turned dark but not completely swallowed in darkness . Nothing was blotting out the sky, but Shihua was crazily devouring the temporal affinity of this area .
All of the light in the world seemed to be heading for his bloody mouth . Escaping was impossible . A bright radiance gathered inside, seemingly made of numerous stars - the light of time .
Not even a single strand could escape from the tight clutch of Shihua . They turned bright and blinding only to be useless, unable to reflect their brightness on something else .
Shihua sucked in and even targeted some of the experts nearby . Their light itself was taken so they turned to dust and scattered away with the wind, issuing sad rustles . These victims surely died with grudges, not knowing that their lives would come to an end in this manner .
“He devours time, and the future too . ” An ancestor from another system shouted in astonishment .
So what he was absorbing wasn’t light itself, but rather the time in everyone’s body . To put it simply, their lifespan . The absorption process would turn the victims bereft of lifespan into specks of dust .
Everyone trembled and quickly ran away from the battlefield, lest they want to be dragged down to this mess .
“Fellow Daoist Wang, be mindful of our disciples . ” Dracoform spoke after seeing the casualties, some from his own system .
“It was a mistake, my apology . ” Shihua said before turning towards Li Qiye: “Get ready!”
“Hssst!” Shihua’s bloody mouth aimed straight at Li Qiye and began to inhale . The celestials in the sky couldn’t withstand this terrible sucking power and turned to fragments instantly .
Space and time were pulled over . Everything around Li Qiye became dust right away . His body began to deteriorate as if it was made of mud . His muscles and tendons slowly disappeared . Keep in mind that even time couldn’t run away from this gaping jaw, let alone a living being .
When Shihua used this technique, he could rob someone of their time and turn them into nothingness .
