"Hmph, does he think that such a pitiful little trick will work on me?" one of the clones harrumphed coldly before making a hand seal, and a giant devilish projection appeared behind him amid a flash of grey light.
The devilish projection had a pair of horns on its head and several massive tentacles on its back. It let loose a menacing snarl before a giant vertical eye suddenly appeared on its chest amid a flash of crimson light.
The eye took up close to half of the entire area of its chest, and it was glowing with green light, presenting a harrowing sight to behold.
The clone let loose a loud cry, and a burst of green light erupted from the giant eye before vanishing into the crystalline wall in a flash.
In the next instant, the clone closed his eyes, and azure light began to flash incessantly over his face.
After a short while, he said in a confident voice, "There are two actual bodies and six projections. One of them must be a clone, and it's traveling in a different direction from his true body."
"Looks like he's realized our intentions and is trying to shake us off again. Speed up! Don't let him get away!" another clone said in a cold voice.

The stone hall rotated at the center of the formation before disappearing in a flash.
"Let's go," one of the Xue Guang clones said.
The three clones then made hand seals in unison, and bright crimson light radiated from their bodies.
In the next instant, the giant jade plate released a burst of dazzling white light, and its speed increased by more than twofold.
Meanwhile, the Han Lis all fled in different directions, vanishing into the distance in a flash.
Several hundred thousand kilometers away, there was an army of over 1,000 elite devilish beings hiding in preparation for an ambush. Moments later, the army received an order, and they immediately split up into the two before rushing away in two different directions.
As for the place that Han Li was situated at mere moments ago, none of the devilish beings took any further interest in it.
Around 10 minutes later, a ball of purple light suddenly flashed from behind a mundane-looking azure
