The fight was still going on.
In order to keep up with his opponent’s pace, from time to time, Xiaya used the acceleration ability on himself; he also used the Reflection ability which allowed him to deflect attacks equivalent to one-third of his own strength.
However, his continuous use of the Pseudo Super Saiyan transformation heightened his fatigue due to the encumbrance it posed on his body.
It was the same for Slug. Although his Battle Power was greater than Xiaya’s, the law of nature was fair to everyone. Even though turtles lived for a long time, they still dies eventually. A flying serpent could ride the mist, but it would ultimately turn to dust.
Without question, the old eventually succumbs to death. This reality couldn’t be changed, no matter how unwilling the one is.
Since his body had deteriorated with age, the longer the fight went on for, the more Slug’s vigor waned. Nevertheless, his strength was, after all, still greater than Xiaya’s, and his battle experience was also extremely rich. These factors caused this situation to appear in which neither opponent could best the other.
After a while, the battle entered its climax.
They both had blood dripping down the corners of their lips, and their injuries compounded with each bout.
With a bang, Xiaya swung his fist at Slug’s chest, but Slug quickly raised an arm to block the approaching attack, and the other to counter with a punch. Faced with the counter, Xiaya quickly brought both arms together to meet the attack, and instantly, an intense and painful force traveled up his arms, sending him crashing to the ground.
“Heh heh, die!”
Slug’s voice echoed, and Xiaya looked up to see that Slug had instantly arrived before him. Slug’s bloodshot eyes flashed with madness as he swung his arm wildly, and the ensuing violent force instantly raised a formidable hurricane.
At the same moment—-
With a loud shout, a huge, glaring, white energy ray shot into the sky, and Xiaya changed directions with the help of the recoil. Xiaya then quickly turned back, and with few flashing afterimages, instantly arrived above Slug.
This was Slug’s first reaction before everything before him turned dark, causing his pupils to dilate, and his complexion to darken.
Suddenly, a heart-rending pain came from his arm. Slug looked down and saw that his arm had been unknowingly severed, and bright-red blood was gushing out of the wound.
“Ah! Ah!!” Slug roared with hatred, and his face contorted with pain, sprouting blue veins on his forehead. He exercised his power, and a mucus-covered arm extended out from the stump.
Regeneration — this was the unique skill of Namekians.
This ability couldn’t be compared to Majin Buu’s immortal body, but it was still effective in battle; however, this ability consumes a lot of vigor which was quite unbearable for the physically weak Slug.
“You, damn human! You have really angered this king!!”
Slug’s shout was as if it was the grieving cry from hell. Slug glared at Xiaya with resentment, and his black eyes suddenly turned bright red. “He he!” Slug sneered, and the aura being emitted from his body suddenly, not to know why, again increased.
Slug had finally used all of his strength, without any thought to the cost. Although this burst of power would greatly shorten his life, the strength of his opponent had greatly exceeded his expectation.
He had initially believed that Battle Power greater than 30 million was sufficient to deal with the human, but he didn’t think that Xiaya was even more powerful than the number 30 million displayed.
Where the hell did this human come from? Why is his strength far more powerful than the energy shown?!
Slug’s pupil’s flickered like a viper’s as he pondered.
Hou! Hou! The dark red energy erupted, the rioting energy swirled up a tornado, and a planetary storm stirred the air—even more violently than before!
“Is this Slug’s true strength?”
Feeling the pressure present everywhere in the air, Xiaya narrowed his eyes and lightly bit the tip of his tongue, as his flashing eyes stared.
The two men simultaneously attacked each other.
Huo! The initially still space-time almost seemed to collapse!
High in the sky, lightning flashed and thunder boomed, and fist shadows interweaved. Energy waves shoot out in all directions, and small pebbles were directly crushed into powder. Loud earth-shaking rumbles resounded consecutively, and in only a few seconds, Xiaya and Slug had exchanged a countless amount of blows.
However, even though it seemed that neither opponent had the advantage, Xiaya’s energy was, after all, lesser than Slug’s; thus, the destructive damage that Xiaya could deal had reduced, and he gradually fell into a disadvantage and numerous new wounds appeared on his body. The severe pain irritating his brain.
However, this did little to dampen his joy while fighting, and instead, it heightened his excitement!
His Saiyan’s bloodline had been completely aroused!
“Ha ha ha, I am delighted!!” Xiaya roared, almost crazily. This intense battle against Slug excited him immensely like never before.
Every injury stimulated his potential, and the millions of cells within the body were all invigorated and burst with an unprecedented amount of energy.
Such an imposing manner was akin to a mad dog that wouldn’t back down until it was dead, and this frightened Slug.
An extreme murderous intent welled up in Slug’s cold heart. “People like him must be eradicated at once!”
At this time.
In the starry sky not far away from Planet Bahert, a brilliant ray of light streaked by, like a meteor streaking across the starry sky, and in the blink of an eye, it had disappeared.
“How long would it take to arrive at Planet Bahert?” Cooler sat atop his throne and tapped his fingers on the hard material of the armrest, making “tap tap tap” sounds.
“Five more minutes!” An alien in the pilot’s cabin stood up and reported while several of its arms swiftly manipulated the buttons.
“Beep! Beep! Beep!”
As the spaceship got closer and closer to Planet Bahert, the boundless raging energy above the distant planet was detected by the energy detector above the spaceship. Along with flickering red lights, an ear-piercing alarm continuously rang, immediately breaking the silence in the spaceship.
“What’s going on?” Cooler’s face was icy, his scarlet eyes flashing with a chilly glow.
His subordinate quickly checked, and after a while, it said, “King Cooler, the energy detector on the spaceship has detected a strong energy response on the target planet!”
“Oh! How strong is it?”
Generally, these spaceship detectors were used to detect powerful phenomena that occur in the universe—such as supernovas, cosmic radiations, and others that occurs in outee space— and to avoid dangers. But, unexpectedly, it had detected something on the target planet, Planet Bahert.
“There are two energy responses, and both of them are… above 30 million!!”
“Hm?” Upon hearing his subordinate’s report, Cooler’s countenance sank, and his face darkened, as his whole body emitted an even more icy aura.
“Ha ha ha, 30 million Battle Power. That’s good!”
Cooler smiled and stroked his chin: “Unexpectedly, such a powerful energy response had been detected on Planet Bahert. Tell me, is that the strength of the East Area’s alien itself, or its strength after eating the fruit of the Tree of Might!”
Cooler suddenly stood up, narrowed his eyes and curled the corners of his purple lips. A frightening aura akin to an ancient beast’s erupted out of his body. The aura turned into airstreams and swept throughout the spaceship.
Under this aura’s oppression, everyone in the spaceship trembled with fear.
“Continue to speed up and arrive at Planet Bahert in three minutes!”
“But, Your Majesty, if we continue to accelerate, the spaceship will not be able to endure it!” The alien who was in charge of piloting the spaceship explained.
An icy voice sounded, and Cooler’s bloodshot eyes flickered with a cold and stern light.
Faced with his terrifying pressure, Cooler’s alien subordinates didn’t dare refute his order any further; even if the spaceship was on course for destruction, they could only do as Cooler ordered! The command was quickly inputted into the control system, and regardless of the alarms generated from the spaceship’s system due to the overload, they piloted the spaceship at full speed.
Because of its extreme speed, the spaceship began to violently shake, and it seemed as though it would fall apart at any time…
When they detected Cooler’s army accelerate, King Cold’s army, which was following far behind, still continued to follow at a leisurely pace. They didn’t seem to be in any hurry.
