The woman’s weakness was clearly seen by the many fleeing Ink Clans. Originally, they had been frightened by her killing, but now they saw hope again.
There were still three or four Ink Clan at the Feudal Lord level, and as they exchanged glances, they understood each other’s thoughts without any discussion.
So many Ink Clans and Ink Disciples had been killed by a single Human Race, resulting in heavy casualties. If they allowed the other party to escape, it would be too useless and they wouldn’t be able to explain themselves to their superiors.
If the higher-ups were to come after them, they would also be punished.
The only thing they could do now was to fight to the death to keep this woman here. Only by killing her here could they redeem themselves.
The fleeing Ink Clans and Ink Disciples were once again gathered together, and with the few surviving Feudal Lords leading the way, they split up and surrounded the ragged Sword Dragon.
They had already experienced the might of this Sword Dragon, and more than half of the several hundred people had been killed by it, so how could they not know how powerful it was?
Therefore, when the Sword Dragon once again charged in a certain direction, the Ink Clan members who were blocking it immediately scattered while the others fiercely used their Secret Techniques to bombard the Sword Dragon from afar.
After three or five times, the Sword Dragon really didn’t kill many of the Ink Clan’s people, instead becoming more ragged. However, by the time the Sword Dragon stopped, the encirclement was still there, not giving her any chance to escape.
Looking around at the surrounding Ink Clan and Ink Disciple, the woman’s pale face remained indifferent, as if she was not the one in danger.
Cracking sounds rang out once more as the Sword Dragon’s body began to twist and distort. Under the dumbfounded gazes of all the Ink Clan and Ink Disciple, a brand new Sword Dragon appeared!
However, because most of the Sword Dragon’s Sword Qi had been shattered, this Sword Dragon was more than half its original size, but it was still more than a thousands feet long.
Yang Kai was filled with admiration for this woman. Before this, he had never thought that he would be able to use his Divine Ability Manifestation in such a way. From this, it could be seen just how powerful this woman was. Her control over her Divine Ability Manifestation had definitely reached a level where she could use it as she pleased. This woman’s attainments in the Sword Dao were absolutely terrifying.
The thousands feet long Sword Dragon once again charged forward. Compared to before, although its body was a bit shorter, it was still much larger and more agile for the Ink Clan and Ink Disciple.
However, the Ink Clan’s side had insisted on delaying the battle, not engaging in a direct confrontation with her at all, only hoping to delay her. For a time, this gave the woman an extreme headache. After several attacks, she wasn’t able to kill many of her enemies, and her Sword Dragon body had once again become tattered.
Time and time again, the woman fought back against the enemy, dragging the hundreds of Ink Clan cultivators behind her.
The thousands feet long Sword Dragon had transformed once again and was now only 30 zhang long. If this happened again, the Sword Dragon’s body would not be able to sustain itself, and without the protection of the Sword Dragon’s body, with the woman’s current weakened state, it was likely she would die.
However, her goal of delaying her pursuers had been achieved. Whether she lived or died, the people on that ship had managed to escape.
At this moment, anyone could see that the woman was trying to break through the barrier and escape, but after paying such a heavy price and forcing her into a dead end, how could the Ink Clan allow such a thing to happen?
Although the Ink Clan and Ink Disciple were constantly being killed, the encirclement was still tight, not giving her any chance.
Yang Kai’s heart was filled with suffering. Seeing this woman fight alone, he wanted nothing more than to reveal his identity and fight alongside her. However, this thought only flashed across his mind before being rejected.
In this current situation, even with his help, the woman was no match. After all, he was only a Sixth Order Open Heaven Stage cultivator, so how could he win against so many Ink Clan and Ink Disciple?
Not to mention, it was difficult for him to gain the woman’s trust.
If he continued to hide, he might be able to find some kind of opportunity.
The 30 zhang long Sword Dragon was also beaten to a pulp, and the woman was truly at her limit, her pale face devoid of any color.
Seeing this, the attacks of the Ink Clan and Ink Disciple became even fiercer.
At a certain moment, the Sword Dragon suddenly turned around and rushed towards Yang Kai and the others. Many of the Ink Clan and Ink Disciple’s faces turned pale with fright, while Angry Flame immediately dodged to the side. It had to be said that although this fellow’s ability was not great, his ability to avoid danger was extremely timely.
No one had expected the Sword Dragon to rush in this direction, only because Yang Kai and the others were in the rear. All this time, the woman had never set her sights on this place. She had repeatedly rushed forward, wanting to escape the encirclement, but she had never done this.
This was quite unexpected.
Yang Kai even suspected that her previous actions were just to numb the enemy. Her true goal had always been the rear of the encirclement.
Many of the Ink Clan and Ink Disciple retreated, but the Ink Clan’s Feudal Lord only hesitated for a moment before shouting angrily.
It wasn’t that he didn’t know how powerful this woman was, it was just that after fighting for so long, she had clearly reached the point of exhaustion, so how much strength could she display?
What’s more, he had great confidence in his own strength. As long as he could stop this woman for an instant, the other clansmen would come to support him.
His confidence quickly became arrogance.
The 30 zhang long Sword Dragon spun like a top and collided with the Ink Clan Feudal Lord. Without a sound, the Ink Clan Feudal Lord turned into a black blood mist and instantly died.
Even the High Rank Ink Clan and Ink Disciple behind him had suffered heavy casualties.
Angry Flame managed to dodge in time, he was not injured at all. On the other hand, because Yang Kai was worried about the woman’s safety, he was unable to retreat immediately and was injured by the Sword Dragon’s shockwave, leaving a deep wound on his chest that was dripping with blood.
The golden blood was extremely dazzling, and the woman couldn’t help glancing over at him.
As their eyes met, a trace of surprise flashed across the woman’s eyes. In the intense battle just now, she hadn’t paid any attention to Yang Kai’s existence. It was only now that she recognized this Ink Disciple is the one who had escaped from her hands several days ago.
At that time, she had wanted to kill him, but because of the roar of the Ninth Order Old Ancestor, she had no choice but to retreat.
However, after just a quick glance, the woman no longer paid any attention to this matter.
The resistance of the Ink Clan and Ink Disciples before their deaths caused the 30 zhang long Sword Dragon to disintegrate, leaving behind only a few sword lights protecting the woman as her Divine Ability Manifestation was completely destroyed.
But because of this, she had managed to break through the encirclement!
With the Small Universe’s remaining strength, she transformed into a streak of light and rushed forward, heading towards the Ink Clan’s hinterland, the direction where the Human Race masters had gone to.
She had no choice but to make this choice. The road ahead was blocked by her pursuers, and now death is the only place she could retreat to.
Seeing the woman escape, how could the remaining Ink Clan members allow her to do as she wished? The three surviving Feudal Lord chased after her while the remaining Ink Clan and Ink Disciple followed closely behind.
In the blink of an eye, a great chase began.
Although the woman was already an arrow at the end of its flight, her speed was still incredibly fast. Wrapped in her sword light, she transformed into a sword light and flew through the air, the pursuing Ink Clan cultivators unable to catch up to her.
After leading her pursuers around a large circle, the woman suddenly changed direction and fled.
Seeing this, Yang Kai let out a sigh of relief. But she continued to flee towards the Ink Clan’s hinterland, destined to die. Without a Ninth Order Old Ancestor to act as a deterrent, just relying on this woman alone, no matter how strong she was, it was impossible for her to survive. Only by fleeing in the opposite direction would she have any hope of survival.
The distance between them became greater. If nothing unexpected happened, the woman would definitely be able to escape, which was what Yang Kai hoped to see.
However, right at this moment, a powerful aura suddenly appeared from the rear, causing Yang Kai to be startled. Turning his head, he saw a black mass rapidly approaching.
This scene was quite familiar. When the Ink Royal Lord had led so many Ink Clan masters to appear, it had been this shocking scene.
However, at this moment, the corrosive black color was clearly not as large as before, and there was only a single aura within it.
This was… a Territory Lord-level Ink Clan!
Yang Kai’s heart sank as he clenched his fists.
A Territory Lord-level Ink Clan was equivalent to an Eighth Order Human Race Open Heaven Stage master. For such an expert to appear at this moment, that woman was in grave danger!
The woman in front of him also felt a sense of danger and her speed suddenly increased, obviously trying to escape.
However, how could she escape the pursuit of a Territory Lord from the Ink Clan?
The distance between them rapidly shortened, and soon, the black color faded, revealing a massive figure hidden within. The figure raised his hand and sent a palm strike towards the fleeing sword light.
Space trembled as Yang Kai saw the sword light suddenly freeze and the woman with the sword was sent flying, blood spraying from her mouth.
With the strength this woman had displayed before, if she had been at her peak, even if she had encountered a Territory Lord level Ink Clan master, even if she wasn’t their opponent, she would have been able to resist at least a little. However, she was already on the verge of death, so how could she resist such a blow?
A single palm strike was enough to severely wound her.
She couldn’t escape!
The woman was quite decisive. Knowing that there was no way she could escape, she immediately turned around, merged her body with her sword, and transformed into a shocking sword light that slashed towards the pursuing Ink Clan Territory Lord.
The power of this sword strike was earth-shattering, and it was the last strike she had used with all her strength.
The Ink Clan’s Territory Lord's expression was cold as he punched out, his massive fist colliding with the sword light, causing it to scatter like fireflies.
The Ink Clan’s Territory Lord's towering figure stood tall in the air, his hand clenched into a fist, holding a figure in it.
Her pure white clothes had been dyed red with blood and her beautiful hair was also in a mess. The woman’s aura was as weak as a candle flame in the wind that could be extinguished at any moment.
Even though she was facing such a desperate situation, the woman didn’t resign herself to death, but no matter how she struggled, she was unable to break free from the shackles of the Ink Clan’s Territory Lord.
Yang Kai’s heart clenched. In this current situation, the woman had already been captured. As long as the Ink Clan’s Territory Lord used a bit of strength, she would probably be crushed.
