As they advanced further, Suo Jia and the two girls encountered multiple attacks from bands of thieves in succession. However, without an exception, none of these minor thieves had any formidable strength. In the beginning, Suo Jia had been excited to do the job himself, but in the end, he completely lost interest. Whenever someone obstructed their way, he directly told Aimi and Aila to battle instead.
Aimi and Aila combined also had peerless might. Although they weren’t able to suppress the enemies as easily as Suo Jia could, they still weren’t people that ordinary thieves could possibly rival. They managed to travel to their arranged destination with little delay.
The Angelic Six-Winged Phoenixes had too many enemies. For the sake of maintaining a peaceful environment, they had chosen a narrow cave as their temporary training area. A few dozen large caravans were their temporary living quarters.
When Suo Jia arrived, the 36 Angelic Six-Winged Phoenixes were currently mock-fighting each other. Their figures blurred together, and loud booms resounded through the air again and again. It could be said that their fighting was beyond the ordinary definition of lively.
“Holy crap!” Suo Jia couldn’t help but get excited by the sight. Without another word…he charged into the crowd. How could he miss out on such a fun activity?
Seeing this, Aimi and Aila refused to fall behind either. After a journey full of victories, they had accumulated enough self-confidence. No matter who their opponent was, they were sure that they could shake the opposite party!
After 10 months, Suo Jia discovered that these girls now possessed blazing murderous auras. Although they had previously emitted such auras as well, the difference between them then and now was way too great.
Back when they were still at Holy Light Academy, they had already possessed murderous auras. However, it wasn’t very clear back then. But now was a different story. When they battled, their murderous auras seemed to leak out from their bodies. Mixed with the blazing battle qi around their bodies, it formed a red aura cocooning them. As it enveloped the Angelic Six-Winged Phoenixes, one couldn’t even differentiate their facial features.
As Suo Jia charged over, a clear shout rang through the air and a red gold figure suddenly dived down from dozens of meters above him. The large war blade in the figure’s hand carried an unimaginably imposing air, and it whizzed down at Suo Jia with a bang.
Faced with this thunderous attack, Aimi’s and Aila’s expressions couldn’t help but change. However, Suo Jia smiled instead. He lightly pressed his foot down into the ground. A ripple formed around Suo Jia’s right foot, and the waves undulated through his surroundings. At the same time, Suo Jia’s body leapt up into the air like a fish jumping out of water!
“Rumble!” As Suo Jia leapt up, the opposite party powerfully swung their blade, which directly bombarded the ground. Red light shot out in all four directions, sending rubble flying everywhere. This showed just how formidable this single attack was!
At the same time, Suo Jia was still flying upwards. He adjusted his body’s position, and pressed his right hand down. The four auxiliary magics, Precision Strike, Spirit Lock, Acceleration Drive, and Berserk Impact, all automatically activated. Meanwhile, Mysterious Ice Arrow instantly activated as well!
“Chi!” A sharp whizzing sound rang through the air as a bright blue streak of light instantly connected Suo Jia and that red gold figure. Due to Suo Jia’s accurate attack, the red gold figure was violently blasted backwards. Only after leaving a dozens of meters long indent in the ground did the figure finally stop skidding.
Seeing this scene, the Angelic Six-Winged Phoenixes couldn’t help but abruptly stop in their tracks and look towards the sky. There, Suo Jia currently had his arms crossed in front of his chest as he looked down at everyone with a smile. What really shocked everyone was that Suo Jia had actually stopped in midair. Waves rippled out from under his feet one by one, as if he was standing on water.
After a while, the red gold figure that had been miserably thrown across the ground slowly crawled up. She awkwardly rubbed her head and said, “I was careless just now. I hadn’t imagined that Young Master’s reaction would be so fast, and that your counterattack would be so powerful. You pretty much evaded the attack the same time you attacked. My loss was to be expected!”
Suo Jia smiled as he shook his head and said, “Who said you lost? I don’t think I defeated you at all!”
Hearing this, the Angelic Six-Winged Phoenix on the ground was dumbfounded for a moment before she asked in confusion, “But…I was already accurately hit by you. If it weren’t for the Six-Winged Phoenix Heavenly Clothes, I would’ve already…”
“Wait a minute!” Before she had finished speaking, Suo Jia frowned and said, “I don’t understand. Why must you exclude the Six-Winged Phoenix Heavenly Clothes?”
“That…” Everyone couldn’t help but be at a loss after hearing Suo Jia’s question.
Helplessly shaking his head, Suo Jia said, “You guys should know that I spent much of my blood and spirit on everything you’re wearing. It was always a part of your strength. No matter who you face, unless they can break through your armor, you haven’t been defeated. Even that attack I hit you with just now is the same!”
Hearing Suo Jia’s words, the red gold figure walked out from the line of other Angelic Six-Winged Phoenixes and said in a clear voice, “Young Master is right. As a warrior, a loss is only when one can no longer move. As long as one can still act, can still counterattack, then it cannot qualify as a loss! The battle’s outcome is still far from determined!”
Nodding his head in praise, Suo Jia replied, “That’s right. Although you were hit by me, it hasn’t taken away your ability to resist. In addition, it had little impact on your strength. You all must remember that this armor cannot break. Although it’s hard to avoid encountering an attack…there is nothing in this world that can harm this armor. That’s why you shouldn’t be afraid of getting hit. No matter how precise the enemy’s attacks are, as long as you can still counter, you will not lose!”
All of the Angelic Six-Winged Phoenixes’ eyes lit up at Suo Jia’s words. Everything that had occurred the past 10 months was already more than enough to confirm the truth of Suo Jia’s words!
That’s right, in all of the Gold Triangle, their strength wasn’t actually the most powerful out there. In reality, if they got rid of their clothes, it’d be quite good if they could even be counted as average rank. If there were a total of 100,000 warriors on the entire Greater Trade Routes, there would at least be 30,000-40,000 people stronger than them.
However, it was just as the Young Master said. Although they couldn’t evade all attacks, and were perhaps no match for these attacks, so what? With the protection of this peerless armor, they weren’t afraid of any attacks. With the help of the four colored potions, even if they couldn’t defeat their opponents, they could run away. Even if they couldn’t escape their opponents, they could wear down the opponent so that they’d lose their physical strength and be unable to continue chasing them. Otherwise, the girls would’ve died ages ago.
Suo Jia smiled at the Angelic Six-Winged Phoenix across from him and said, “Duo Mei, right? Long time no see. Let me test exactly what realm your strength has reached. Come…go ahead and attack me!”
Duo Mei’s eyes lit up. Although the Young Master was still young, his strength wasn’t low. The Young Master from 10 months ago might’ve been stronger than any of the Angelic Six-Winged Phoenixes in terms of strength, but Duo Mei believed that now, she absolutely wouldn’t lose!
After 10 months of arduous battles, with the help of the completely linked pseudo-Epic ranked equipment set and the Fire Phoenix Necklace, Duo Mei’s strength had increased quickly. One could even describe the growth as ridiculous. The current her had long since surpassed her other companions, and she had become the absolute strongest among the Angelic Six-Winged Phoenixes!
Young Master was strong, extremely strong. However, Duo Mei still believed that the current her was stronger than the Young Master. Just as he had said, she essentially couldn’t be defeated by attacks!
