Chapter 188 – A Battle Between The Strong

Everyone had to admit that this was the most powerful electric fan they had ever seen! Like a tornado, it blew away the poisonous gas that Primus Hogue had spread, not allowing it to get close to Romon at all.

If this attack didn’t work, there was always another. Primus Hogue was a supreme expert who had surpassed the Sixth Order rank, so it was natural that he had more than this up his sleeves.

Primus Hogue flipped his hands. He was now holding onto two sharp weapons. If one looked closely enough, those two weapons were extremely sharp daggers shining with a white light.

“Humph!” Seeing those daggers, Romon voiced his disdain. The tornado-like wind only stopped when Romon gradually stopped rotating the copper staff. Primus Hogue uttered a shrill cry like a bat, and flapped his wings before flying up into the air. Similar to the tornado whirlwind that Romon had previously displayed, Primus Hogue started rotating his whole body midair. His rotating speed kept increasing until his face could not be seen clearly. One could only see a powerful black whirlwind moving towards Romon. This almost thirty foot tall black whirlwind was similar to a pillar that brought bursts of violent winds, making it hard for people to open their eyes.

Romon must have had his own reasons when he said that Primus Hogue was not fit to be his opponent. Sure enough, the copper staff in his hands started growing larger. Stabbed into the ground, it grew to a height equal to about three floors, no less than the black whirlwind of Primus Hogue.

A person and a pillar were colliding with each other, like a fight between two different colors of lightning. There weren’t any other sounds in the surrounding space except for the “bing bing bang bang” noises of metallic items striking each other.

Primus Hogue was finally retreating. If one looked closely, they could see his hands trembling nonstop. As for the big copper pillar, one could see many nicks and scratches on its surface. It appeared that Primus Hogue’s whirlwind attack had caused quite a bit of damage to the pillar. If the pillar had been an actual person, that person would have probably been shred to pieces and swallowed whole by his whirlwind.

“Boom!” Romon pulled the copper pillar out and smashed it to the ground. “You no longer have any chances left!”

With Romon as the center, his golden energy started shining like the morning sun. The bright light and the terrifying energy made the people in the surroundings feel as if they were suffocating. When the two first clashed, Romon had confirmed the Vampire wasn’t fit to be his opponent. Although the two were currently in the same realm of power, the different levels they were on were enough to determine the victor. Due to Romon’s violent energy pressure, the surrounding air became visible, seemingly rippling.

“Bang!”

The golden energy started melding together with the copper pillar. In but a few seconds, the huge pillar rose to the air, and was completely covered in flames. The heat of the flames started making the air fluctuate, and with a sudden roaring sound the pillar of flame disappeared midair. The next moment, the pillar fell down just like a meteor smashing into the earth.

“Boom!”

The loud sound echoed in the surrounding space and shook the earth. Lei Yu and the others couldn’t help but feel like this was the end of the world.

Dust covered the entire sky, blocking the people’s sight. Shortly after, a cool breeze blew by, slowly removing all the dust. Everyone’s eyes looked like they were about to pop out of their sockets because the large estate had completely collapsed. The only thing left was where Lei Yu and the others were standing. Behind them was the castle manor, the sole thing left standing, surrounded by an abyss.

Looking off into the distance, it seemed that the entire town had disappeared. The powerful shock had destroyed pretty much everything, and the houses had all become piles of gravel.

“Strong! Too strong!” Lei Yu was shocked to the core. A single attack was capable of destroying an entire town; its power was no less than a magnitude 8 earthquake! This place had now become the epicenter, as if they were standing on top of a cliff. The once lively rural town had now become a desolate place. One would find it hard to believe that this had once been a settlement.

“Where’s Primus Hogue?” Everyone was looking around, but couldn’t even find a glimpse of his shadow. Their first thought was that under such a powerful attack, he might have been instantly killed by Romon’s enormous flame pillar.

No, it couldn’t be that easy! This wasn’t Romon’s strongest attack, and he had never expected to kill Primus Hogue with it either.

Sure enough, a shaking figure was slowly floating out from the abyss and into the sky – it was Primus Hogue! With a body covered in dust, the blood on his clothes showed that he had been injured. It was expected, since under such a large area attack which had been almost instantaneous, escaping wasn’t a simple task, even if one had a pair of wings. The fact that he hadn’t died was already surprising for Lei Yu and the others. If they had been in his place, most likely their bodies would have already been blown into smitherreens.

“Ding, ding!” Primus Hogue banged the two daggers he was holding together. He lifted his head and stared at Romon, who was also floating midair, with the copper staff resting on his shoulders. He then said in a cold voice: “You have completely enraged me! I am going to reduce everyone here to ashes!”

A vicious person would always use vicious methods. They would never openly confront their opponents, but find a weakness such as someone they cared about, and go after that. These types of people were the ones Lei Yu hated the most.

But Romon’s lips only sneered lightly, and didn’t bother with what Primus Hogue had said. When it came to speed, Lei Yu had never seen how fast Romon was, but a Vampire’s speed was certainly not slow. Someone like Bel, who was at the Prince, rank already had a speed that shocked Lei Yu. After all, they had a teleportation-like ability. And now, the person in question was Primus Hogue, a supreme expert who had already surpassed the Prince rank!

“You little runt who have just entered the early levels of a Blood Emperor. You want to pretend to be cool in front of me and say I enraged you? You’re courting death!” It was obvious that the previous armageddon-like attack hadn’t consumed much of Romon’s energy, because he still looked rather relaxed.

Lei Yu was so envious… Being able to float or fly like the two of them would be such a cool thing for him!

“Screech, screech!” Eyes blood-red, Primus Hogue screeched once again, his body suddenly disappearing from the sky.

“Not good!” Lei Yu’s face paled. A surge of powerful and difficult to resist momentum came billowing over, with them as its target. No one could move their bodies at all. Could it be that Primus Hogue would instantly turn them into ashes?

“Humph!” Romon turned around, displaying a terrifying, unimaginable speed. At near instantaneous speeds, a rainbow shot through the air and the huge pillar smashed down towards the ground.

“Bam!”

Now this was a cannonball. Primus Hogue, who had just appeared, had never dreamed that he would be smashed like a baseball. No, rather than saying baseball, playing whac-a-mole would be more accurate. Primus Hogue’s boy was smashed into the deepest part of the abyss. Even if he had 10,000 lives, it would have been impossible for him to stay alive because Romon’s strike had solidly hit Primus Hogue, dead center.

Romon smiled at the crowd in front of him. His previous large area attack had been controlled to perfection; everything was destroyed except for this place. There wasn’t the slightest damage to the area where Lei Yu and the others were standing.
