Chapter 71: Is There Any Hope

"Ehhh, the number of Fifth Dimensional beings seem to have lessened."

Big Xiong, who was driving the war chariot, suddenly discovered this anomaly.

At the beginning of their wild escape, they were getting attacked by an increasingly greater number of descending Fifth Dimensional beings. But now, the number of attacks had decreased.

"There can only be one reason for this. There is someone moving ahead of us that had attracted the attention of the descending Fifth Dimensional beings."

Li Yunmu said in a serious tone.

"Yunmu, are you certain about that?"

Hearing this, Crooked teeth Qiang’s expression became better as he asked the first intelligent question.

"Isn’t it obvious?"

Li Yunmu silently pointed towards the vestiges of wreckage in the front which were created by the Golden Cloud Guards that had passed through here earlier.

It was clear that the luck of the big bear battle squad was very good. The odds of them, who were at the center of Great Spell of Dimensional Field, being able to retreat back to the steel castle with their lives weren’t very high, even with the thunder god war chariot. However, the Golden Cloud Guards dispatched by the fluxer guild towards the Mountain Ridges had just saved them from this calamity.

It wasn’t a coincidence. Although the distance between the two squads was very large, they were moving in the same path in the opposite direction. However, since the wilderness was vast and due to the lack of vision at night, they hadn’t encountered each other when the Golden Cloud Guards passed through.

"I understand now. We should move along this path created by these traces and allow them to be our cannon fodder. Haha, I am really too smart."

The idiot trio realized instantly and laughed mischievously while looking at each other. The feeling of narrowly avoiding a calamity felt very good. However, while everyone believed that it was someone moving in front of them and acting as cannon fodder, this was also just a huge misunderstanding.

Since there wasn’t any crisis at the moment, Li Yunmu didn’t say anything. Under the pretense of resting, he closed his eyes and his consciousness re-entered his consciousness sea.

At this moment, the two shadows had already closed in on the dwarf witch clan’s chief. Naturally, now that he had absorbed the blood cloud, the dwarf witch clan’s chief seemed to have transformed into another monster.

His skinny and dried up body had already become plump and sturdy. His height had increased from 1.2m to 3m and even Li Yunmu, who was just watching from his consciousness sea, had sensed its terrifyingly powerful presence which was emanating from the twelve coloured majestic rainbow flux energy filling his body.

Moreover, among the twelve coloured rainbow light erupting from his body, there was a blood thunder. Perhaps, this blood coloured thunder energy could be classified as the source of its dark flux energy?

Fifth dimension’s king class monster!

He was fully assured that this should be a king class monster. Until this moment, Li Yunmu had dreamed many times of encountering a king class monster. From whom, he would collect the legendary dark flux energy after killing it.

This dream was very beautiful but it was just a fantasy!

However, when it was now happening in reality, it didn’t go as he had dreamt. A king class dimensional beast with a twelve coloured rainbow. Even though it was a human-type dimensional monster, it was still extremely powerful.

Powerful to the extent that Li Yunmu didn’t have any idea about to do about the being in front of him. In his estimation, death was the only conclusion. However, it was absolutely not the death of the dwarf witch clan’s transformed chief, but rather, that of his two shadows.

Only after seeing it for the first time did he finally understand the pinnacle power of the Fifth Dimension, the rainbow crystal flux energy. In this Fifth Dimension, it was the ruler. There was no one who could shake its position. Even if a Rainbow Crystal Flux Disciple, who was in the same layer, had challenged it, winning would be impossible!

"Thou hath destroyed the offspring of this king. Thou hath massacred the dwarf witch race, this crime deserves a death penalty!"

The ice-cold voice of the dwarf witch clan’s chief echoed in the ears of the unafraid shadows. His expression was as if he was looking at two ants.

Li Yunmu, who was watching everything like a god, discovered that this aged clan chief had a hint of sorrow concealed deep within his ice-cold gaze and apathetic tone.

Li Yunmu slightly exclaimed. After careful calculations, he realized that his conduct in the last ten days had really been too excessive. After all, the dwarf witch clan were human-like monsters and had knowledge about social structure.

He had massacred everyone and destroyed their entire race. Thinking about this, he felt like an extremely evil person whose sins had filled the heavens, but...there wasn’t any buts, who asked both sides to fight against each other?

Humanity and dimensional monsters were on opposite sides, there were no two thoughts about it. If the population of dimensional monsters wasn’t lessened from time to time, then the real world of humanity would simply be welcoming a calamity.

"Young shadow, get rid of it. There mustn’t be any apprehensions about it, use your full strength."

Li Yunmu coldly commanded the two shadows.

Softhearted? Humanity? What were these things? He, Li Yunmu, wasn’t a good person from the time he was ordinary. From childhood, he had learned that this was a world where the strong preyed on weak and only the strongest survive.

Battle without worries!

Even if death was certain or the disparity between their strength was huge, one cannot be terrified and must continue on.

The two shadows seemed to have sensed their master’s battle intent as they unleashed Charged Assault, increasing their speed and accelerating as fast as possible. However, at the next instant, the clan chief of the dwarf witches made Li Yunmu aware of the huge difference in their strength.

Its two huge and strong hands made a grasping motion towards the sky. Next instant, a pair of huge black golden hatchets appeared in both his hands.

"Die, bandit!"

His angry howl shook the entire Mountain Ridges and spread over the entire stronghold. The clan chief then leaped into the sky from the altar that was raised up from the ground.

He had jumped several tens of meters high. When he came back down to the ground, he had already moved more than a hundred meters from his original position in a moment and heavily chopped towards the young shadow.

Critical Leap Strike! This was the Critical Leap Strike with its power displayed to the pinnacle, Formidable, extremely formidable.

He didn’t need to see the outcome, only the events that happened. Hearing the loud howl of the clan chief, Li Yunmu was extremely shocked. This was the strength of a twelve coloured rainbow human-type king?

The clan chief fell heavily on the ground from a height of several tens of meters. The ground split from the jolt and the heavy hatchet wrapped in terrifying energy fell upon the young shadow who had unleashed Charged Assault to the pinnacle. A booming sound like an artillery shell exploding rang out.

"You also die."

As one of the hatchets of the clan chief fell on the young shadow, the hatchet in his right hand swung towards shadow two flying at it from the right. Within an instant, this battle seemed to have concluded with this incomparably terrifying energy!

[Notification, young shadow has received the Critical Leap Strike from the dwarf witch clan’s chief. Arrow Evasion’s advance judgment has been sealed due to the enemy’s terrifying presence. Insect Step couldn’t properly sidestep because of the intimidating effect of the fierce attack. The shadow could only resist this attack head-on with the war blade. The war blade is extremely close to breaking; the battle soldier combat suit is nearly destroyed. The young shadow had received serious injuries.]

Despite the Admiralty Cover reducing 48% of the incoming damage, this Critical Leap Strike of the clan chief was just too heavy, to the extent of being frightening.

With just this single attack, the young shadow, which seemed to have erupted with power from Charged Assault, had already received serious injuries while shadow two who had been flying towards the clan chief was hit off course but didn’t receive any serious injuries.

It wouldn’t be an exaggeration to say that if a fluxer who had gold crystal armour had to face this Critical Leap Strike of the clan chief, he wouldn’t have been able to resist and would’ve certainly died.

At this moment, Li Yunmu finally understood why the others didn’t make any plans to attack the stronghold. It wasn’t that they didn’t want to, but rather, under the limit of strength in the Fifth Dimension, it was impossible to attack this place simply by relying on a fluxer who had condensed golden crystal armour.

Let alone mention that fact that before facing it, they would have to face the countless dwarf witches, several Fifth Dimensional beings descending, and the endless tree wizard monsters that would have whittled away all the strength of the squad little by little.

Li Yunmu could attack only because of his formidable defensive cultivation method, Admiralty Cover, which blocked almost half of the incoming damage, that his shadow wouldn’t really die, and that he could also hack without any time restriction. But if all these factors were exchanged with human lives, then the price would’ve been too great, to the extent that no power in the region could bear it.

And after reaching this point, the two shadow would only be killed again and again. Li Yunmu didn’t have any more hope of victory and was ready to end it here.

In face of such a huge disparity in strength, could a miracle really happen?
