By catalyzing True Lunar and Terra Energy as well as the power of the blood and muscles, James’ aura immediately increased drastically.
Holding the sword in her hand, Juniper charged toward him.
The swords clashed.
James switched tactics and aimed straight at Juniper’s vital point. A chill ran down her spine. She never expected James’ sword technique to be this bizarre, so she hurriedly switched tactics to deflect his attack.
After using all his strength, James was not only able to deflect Juniper’s attack, but he could even perform the First Sword Art and the First Lunar and Terra Sword Art against her.
Tyrus, on the other hand, managed to have a brief moment of respite. He hurriedly retreated into the distance and consumed a bottle of elixir.
Upon spectating the battle between James and Juniper, he could not help but sigh.
How powerful… His True Energy is almost equal in strength to mine despite only having broken free of two shackles.
If he broke free of the third shackle, he would be able to stand his ground against a Supernatural easily…
Although James managed to stand his ground against Juniper, this was only temporary. Juniper was extremely powerful. Each time their swords clashed, he could feel his Blood Energy churn inside his body. He only managed to suppress the Blood Energy through enormous True Lunar and Terra Energy.
Once again, the swords clashed. This time, Juniper used all her strength. Overwhelmed, James’ arm went limp, and he was sent flying.
Juniper charged toward him at great speed. In an instant, she appeared before him and pierced his body with her sword.
James wanted to deflect her attack. However, her speed was too extraordinary. Helpless to do anything, his body was pierced by Juniper’s sword. At the same time, Juniper struck him with her palm and sent him flying.
“James!” Tyrus’s face paled, and he charged toward Juniper once more.
“Darling!” Thea was in the midst of a battle against a ninth-rank martial artist when she noticed that James was injured.
She hurriedly shook off her opponent and rushed toward James. Before James could crash into the ground, she managed to grab hold of him in time. Then, holding the injured James in her arms, she retreated into the distance.
On a huge rock in the distance…
Wearing an anxious expression on her face, Thea asked, “A-Are you alright, Darling?”
Not only was his body pierced, but he even suffered a blow to the chest. As Juniper went all out, he suffered grave internal injuries.
“I won’t die just yet…” James wiped the blood off his lips.
“Damn it!” Thea was enraged.
Upon turning around and seeing the fierce battle in the distance, she brandished the Malevolent Sword and headed toward the battlefield. James tried to stop her, but it was no use.
Thea was overwhelmed with anger. The blood inside her body boiled, and her pupils turned blood-red. Powerful energy burst forth from within her body, and she exuded a terrifying aura that surpassed even Tyrus’.
In the blink of an eye, she appeared on the battlefield and slashed with the Malevolent Sword. A Sword Light a hundred meters in length shredded through the air.
Juniper, who was in the midst of a fierce battle against Tyrus, felt a chill down her spine as she sensed a powerful aura approaching from behind. As she turned, the Sword Light was almost upon her. Seeing this, she hurriedly slashed with her sword, and terrifying Sword Energy burst forth and deflected Thea’s attack.
Thea had demonized. Though her strength was drastically boosted, she was still slightly weaker than Juniper.
Upon seeing Thea’s bloodshot eyes, Juniper was stunned.
Does she possess the Supreme Spiritual Root? Could it be that she has been demonized after consuming a Holy Beast’s blood?
As Juniper came from a Sealed Realm, she was knowledgeable about the affairs on Earth. At that moment, she was rather fearful not of Thea, but of her demonized version.
