Chapter 1108: Long Distance Chase
The moment Jikong Wudi appeared in the sky, many people’s eyes opened wide. They couldn’t believe what they were seeing.
“This, this is too shameless.” Someone quietly spoke.
“Not good…” Li Shuangyan and the others regained their composure and immediately rushed to the place where Li Qiye had fallen.
“Heavenly Imperial Malediction…” Older people began to calm down after slightly quivering and murmured: “It is way too vicious.”
According to legends, this type of powerful and terrifying curse was from the high heavens and would be directed at Immortal Emperors. Even these emperors would have to pay a huge price to survive.
After the endeavor, lightning would descend from the sky to create the Heavenly Imperial Malediction. No opponent would be able to escape this curse. The limit was that it could only be used once.
Zhan Shi and Lin were shocked after seeing the curse pierce through Li Qiye’s chest, charring his body. They didn’t expect for this to happen.
In fact, no one thought that Jikong Wudi would resort to such a wretched method.
For millions of years during the struggle to become Immortal Emperor, many people engaged in sneak attacks from the shadows.
However, Li Qiye and the duo were fighting a battle between gentlemen. To ambush someone during this battle would result in them being despised by the crowd. Moreover, Jikong Wudi came from an imperial lineage. He was the descendant of an emperor and had three saint aptitudes. Alas, he still committed such a despicable act.
Although people didn’t directly call him “shameless,” they had nothing but contempt for his action. This made his status in their minds drop all the way to rock bottom.
In their eyes, such an action made a mockery of his fame as a brilliant genius.
The shocked Zhan Shi snapped at Jikong Wudi: “Jikong Wudi, what are you doing?!”
Jikong Wudi stood proudly in the sky while keeping an eye out for Mei Suyao. He glanced over at Zhan Shi and Lin to slowly utter: “Brother Lin, Brother Zhan, I have eliminated a powerful foe and saved your lives. You two should be thanking me.”
Mei Suyao coldly looked at him and spewed with disdain: “How shameless.”
Lin also had a cold demeanor: “We didn’t need you to interfere with our battle. Such a move is truly contemptible!”
Zhan Shi and Lin made it too clear. They were drawing the line between themselves and Jikong Wudi for they did not consider his action a favor.
Jikong Wudi ignored them and flatly said: “Victors shall become kings while losers are treated as bandits. History is written by the victors; from now on, the battle for the Heaven’s Will is between us.”
The duo only snorted dismissively at Jikong Wudi.
Many people here also felt that Jikong Wudi was too despicable and degraded his own prestige.
“Victors shall become kings while losers are treated as bandits. Are you talking about yourself?” A carefree voice came about. Li Qiye was propped up by the girls among the rubble.
Even though his chest was burnt to a crisp, he was still calm and cool. The curse couldn’t kill him.
Mei Suyao heaved a sigh of relief after seeing Li Qiye alive. She knew that he wouldn’t die so easily, but she still felt worried. After seeing him in high spirits, the heaviness in her heart finally disappeared.
“Thank the lord…” Both Lin and Zhan Shi were relieved as well. If Li Qiye died in this manner, they would be full of regret for the rest of their lives.
“Impossible…” Jikong Wudi, on the other hand, was aghast to see Li Qiye still alive despite being penetrated by the malediction.
“The Heavenly Imperial Malediction is indeed incredible. Alas, such a thing will only act as a supplement for me.” Li Qiye chuckled dismissively.
An old rune emerged from his forehead. It contained the great power of heavenly lightning. At this time, the power of the curse was hovering around it and was refined into the rune.
The Ancient Void Rune was taken from the Void Gate. It could absorb all the curses within this lightning strike. Of course, this was only one of its many mystical effects.
Such a terrifying curse would kill anyone that it had directly penetrated. However, the ancient rune absorbed it and instead became even stronger.
“That’s Fiercest for you… still invincible.” Both his friends and enemies sighed after seeing this.
Even his enemies felt that if he died in such a manner, it would be incredibly indignant. It would cause the entire generation to become less brilliant.
Only an existence like Fiercest would be able to illuminate an era into a new golden age.
In a split second, Jikong Wudi stomped the sky like an ascending immortal. A spatial gate opened, allowing him to cross this world with a swift speed. Even a God-Monarch might not be able to catch him.
People were speechless after seeing his quick escape. Meanwhile, a paragon revealed the method: “Ascension Physique!”
Mei Suyao snorted and wanted to take action after seeing this. However, Li Qiye smiled and stomped the sky as well to accelerate and gave chase just as quickly. Mei Suyao halted her offense and followed right after him.
The other girls also followed the duo. Meanwhile, Lin and Zhan Shi had forgotten about the duel and chased them as well. As for the spectators, they naturally wouldn’t miss this exciting event.
Jikong Wudi exerted his speed to the extreme. His blood energy seemed to be urging time itself, causing him to turn into a meteor that streaked across the sky. With this speed, it seemed as if nothing could catch him.
However, even if he was faster, he would be no match for Li Qiye. The moment Li Qiye used his Soaring Immortal Physique, he instantly drew near.
Jikong Wudi was aghast at this sight. His life wheel instantly floated up while his palaces emerged. He used the most powerful longevity blood to fuel his speed even more in a reckless manner. His speed broke through its limit and he soared through the world again with a speed that would put God-Monarchs to shame.
Jikong Wudi was praised for having three saint talents, but this wasn’t truly the case. He had a natural born Saint Wheel and Saint Fate, but only a King Physique. Alas, he cultivated the Ascension Physique, one of the eighteen Saint Physiques. It was in the same branch as the Soaring Immortal Physique with a focus on speed.
Even though the Ascension Physique from Jikong Wudi couldn’t compare to the Soaring Immortal Physique, he had a Saint Wheel and Saint Fate. This granted him powerful blood energy and life force. The moment he channeled everything, his physique became much faster.
However, regardless of how much his speed was boosted as he soared across the world, he still couldn’t shake off Li Qiye.
Time seemed to stop the moment Li Qiye activated his physique. Countless miles seemed to be contained within a single step. He walked, step by step, right behind Jikong Wudi with the intent to chase him to the ends of the earth.
Not too many were able to keep up with them. The closest one was Mei Suyao; the other experts were left far behind. Even God-Monarchs could only barely match the pace.
Jikong Wudi was both angry and scared to see Li Qiye leisurely following behind him, but there was nothing that he could do. At this time, running for his life was the only option or else he would die a miserable death.
In fact, it wasn’t difficult for Li Qiye to catch him. Li Qiye would rather play a game of cat and mouse. The plan was to first scare him out of his mind. It wouldn’t be too late to kill him afterward.
During this game, they saw many cultivators along the way. However, due to their lightning speed, only old paragons were able to see them clearly.
A paragon was startled and murmured: “This is too heaven-defying. Jikong Wudi is being chased by Fiercest like a dog that has lost its master!”
Regardless of whether they were watching or only heard about it, the first reaction was to gasp. In the past, Jikong Wudi was incredibly awe-inspiring with a supreme status. As the descendant of an emperor as well as three saint aptitudes, he had many pride-worthy aspects that allowed him to stand tall wherever he went.
But today, the peerless Jikong Wudi was being chased by Fiercest like a beaten dog. This was truly a shocking event.
Li Qiye took his time keeping up with Jikong Wudi and slowly uttered: “Even if you flee to the edge of this world and obtain the protection of gods, I will still take down your head and use it as a chamber pot.”
Jikong Wudi, on the other hand, was driven mad from anger. He wanted to cut Li Qiye into countless pieces. When had he ever been so embarrassed and downtrodden like this?
After running for a long time, he suddenly stopped the moment he made it to a particular mountain and turned around to look at Li Qiye.
Li Qiye couldn’t help but chuckle while staring at Jikong Wudi on top of this mountain.
Next, the rest of the girls made it here along with the older experts that wanted to watch the fun event. The others slowly caught up as well.
Chapter 1109: Knowing That There Is A Tiger On The Mountain Yet Still Continuing To Climb
After a huge group of cultivators arrived. They saw Jikong Wudi standing on the mountain without running. They were all quite surprised and had to glance at each other.
“Oh? Not running anymore?” Li Qiye smiled while looking at Jikong Wudi.
Jikong Wudo took a deep breath. He arched his chest in high spirits to once again assume his normal imperious posture and looked down on the world.
He was back to his former self — arrogant and conceited with an imposing momentum. This was a striking contrast to his previous appearance of running like a dog with a dead master.
“Li, you really think this Young Noble is afraid of you?” Jikong Wudi stood with both hands crossed over his chest and coldly said: “Earlier was only a strategic retreat.”
“I see, strategic retreat. To describe fleeing in such a manner, you are indeed the descendant of an Immortal Emperor, how extraordinary.” Li Qiye laughed and clapped loudly after leisurely jesting.
“Li, do you dare to come and fight me?!” Jikong Wudi suddenly challenged Li Qiye.
This challenge confused many people. Everyone knew full well that he was not a match for Fiercest.
Earlier, he ran for his life, but now he suddenly turned into a different person, actually daring to directly challenge Li Qiye. This was indeed worth thinking over.
“Challenging me?” Li Qiye looked at Jikong Wudi with a mocking glare.
Jikong Wudi pointed at Li Qiye with an imperial weapon in his hand: “That’s right, do you dare to come and fight me or not? If you are afraid, then you will have to call me granddaddy!”
“So you are certain you’ll win.” Li Qiye laughed again.
Jikong Wudi snorted and coldly said: “You are only an insect. Killing you is as easy as turning my hand. I just need one hand to crush you to death.”
In the past, no one would find such words from Jikong Wudi problematic. Back then, he was praised as Deity. Some even considered him to be the best among the younger generation.
But now when he uttered this statement towards Fiercest, everyone felt that he was too arrogant. Even if he had an imperial weapon, there was no chance of him beating Fiercest.
“I actually want to see just what you have up your sleeves.” Li Qiye clapped his hands together: “Even though your goading is quite crappy.”
“I am full of confidence, there’s no need for any psychological tactics against you.” Jikong Wudi declared.
“Whether it is a tactic or not doesn’t matter.” Li Qiye leisurely smiled: “Regardless of the circumstances, I am someone who likes to do one particular thing: shatter the self-esteem of others. They think that they are certain of winning, so I like to defeat and stomp them beneath my feet until there is nothing left of their confidence. Only despair shall remain.”
“Be careful, I’m afraid it is a trap.” Mei Suyao quietly reminded him after seeing him accepting the challenge.
In fact, many people could faintly guess it. Jikong Wudi had completely changed his attitude and brazenly said that he would crush Li Qiye. This made the crowd think that he had something up his sleeves.
Li Qiye smiled and glanced around the area before ordering the girls: “I will be careful, but remember, no matter what happens, do not do anything or it will ruin my plan.”
The girls looked at each other before silently nodding.
Li Qiye stepped onto the mountain and looked at Jikong Wudi with his imperial weapon: “Go ahead, show me all you have.” With that, he revealed a big grin: “Like I said before, even if the deities choose to protect you, your head will still be a chamber pot. You better do everything you can since I’ll chop off your head with one move!”
Being shown such blatant disdain by Li Qiye left Jikong Wudi with an extremely ugly expression. He had always been untouchable. Even though recently, his fame was overshadowed by Li Qiye, he still couldn’t swallow his anger from Li Qiye’s mocking tone.
“Go!” Jikong Wudi shouted coldly.
“Zzz—” In a split second, the four directions were sealed. A temporal vortex appeared right above Li Qiye. He seemed to be lost in a swamp of time with his body sinking down as if he was about to disappear completely.
“Not good, it’s a trap.” Many people were startled. Even the girls shuddered slightly.
No one knew what it was. They only saw time flowing with Li Qiye seemingly disappearing. He involuntarily sank into the river of time and couldn’t return to this world, to be forever erased.
“Little animal, die!” Jikong Wudi was overjoyed to see this. This was the best time to attack. With a roar, his blood energy surged and a Heaven’s Will Secret Law emerged.
“Boom!” Jikong Wudi utilized all of his blood energy, resulting in quite a moving scene. This energy as vast as a sea was channeled into his imperial weapon and instantly dried up.
At this moment, a beastly imperial aura poured down like a terrifying flood breaking the dam.
“Boom!” A majestic figure emerged. An Immortal Emperor came out and unleashed a strike capable of destroying myriad realms.
“Imperial Massacre!” Someone shouted after sensing this terrifying blow.
“Imperial Massacre…” The crowd became absent-minded. This attack meant that Jikong Wudi was untouchable among the younger generation. An Imperial Massacre could destroy all things. Even a Godking might not escape the fate of annihilation.
“Watch out…” Li Shuangyan and the others became worried as well as they reminded Li Qiye to be careful.
Li Qiye was drowning in the temporal river as the attack was approaching. The shocked crowd was wiping their sweat for Li Qiye. Someone commented: “This is too dangerous.”
“Right, a trap below and an Imperial Massacre from above.” Most thought that Li Qiye wouldn’t be able to escape this time.
“Good effort.” Li Qiye smiled in the face of this attack.
With a hum, his cauldron of life rushed forward and spewed out an endless amount of fire with great life force.
Inside the endless fire of life, the Heavenly Dao’s Primal Chapter was ringing continuously and seemed to be turning into a boundless ocean. Countless runes of the grand dao were floating inside this ocean-like fish. There were also primordial lights flashing inside as if this place was the beginning of myriad dao in this world. It was continuously gestating new heavenly dao.
“Boom!” The Imperial Massacre was stopped by this boundless ocean. It was easy to imagine the might of this attack. It set off a gigantic tidal wave in the sky and instantly brought down many stars.
Nevertheless, the primal chapter still blocked it. The attack from the Imperial Massacre seemed to be endlessly slowing down in this sea full of brilliance. Suddenly, everyone saw the attack explode into countless little bits and pieces. The power of these little parts were all sucked in.
In this process, the primal chapter analyzed the Imperial Massacre’s composition and transformation before sucking in everything like a vortex. All the offensive power and grand dao power of the imperial weapon was instantly funneled into the runes of the primal chapter.
In a short period of time, not only did the primal chapter stop the Imperial Massacre, it also turned the attack’s power into its own.
“Impossible…” Jikong Wudi blurted out and was stunned right away. Li Qiye was not annihilated like he imagined! He couldn’t believe his own eyes. It was a sure-kill blow, but this was the result instead.
It could even be said that no one understood this event. No one could imagine an Imperial Massacre being taken down like this.
Of course, they didn’t know that the primal chapter had a matchless origin. Some people even called it the beginning of all grand dao in this world, or at least a great part of it.
“My turn.” Li Qiye laughed out loud. With a buzz, the fire of life poured down like a waterfall. Strands of universal laws from the primal chapter instantly pierced the vortex and sucked away the forces of time before turning them into its own.
With that, he flipped his palm, causing the stars to mimic his movements.
“Boom!” Myriad realms trembled. This palm attack didn’t only have the power of the Imperial Massacre from earlier, but also the power of time from the formation.
The formation quaked as if it was about to break into pieces in the face of these two powers.
Chapter 1110: Divine Ancestor
“No…” Jikong Wudi screamed against the incoming attacks. He instinctively attacked with his imperial weapon.
However, he couldn’t unleash a second Imperial Massacre. The first one had already used the majority of his blood energy.
Not even in his dreams would he expect that his perfect attack would end in failure. He really couldn’t understand how Li Qiye could stop the Imperial Massacre after being trapped in the river of time.
Not to mention Li Qiye, even a Godking wouldn’t have been able to escape such a bleak situation. But now, Li Qiye managed to stop the Imperial Massacre and counterattacked with an even greater momentum.
“Boom!” His second attack with the imperial weapon was quite powerful. It should be able to suppress many experts and repel even God-Monarchs.
However, Li Qiye’s two forces were approaching. Even a stronger imperial weapon wouldn’t be able to stop them without unleashing another massacre.
“Bang!” The imperial weapon became unstable in the face of this attack. It couldn’t protect Jikong Wudi either.
The Immortal Emperor laws from the weapon were severed while the supreme grand dao was annihilated.
“No…” Jikong Wudi screamed as he watched his body being destroyed inch by inch by Li Qiye’s crushing momentum; this scene resembled a grindstone shaving away a blade.
“Halt!” While Jikong Wudi was screaming, a shout came about. With a clank, nine divine swords flew down from the sky. They rotated around like a heavenly compass before slashing straight at Li Qiye.
After seeing the swords, there was no need to look further before knowing who it was. A Virtuous Paragon shouted: “Venerable Ninesword…!”
Many people trembled before the nine divine swords. The venerable was quite notorious as a general under an emperor. Although he was not the strongest, he was still quite scary and capable of deterring the current world.
“Scram!” However, Li Qiye didn’t bother looking at him. The primal chapter instantly devoured the entire power of the formation while Li Qiye blocked the incoming attack with one hand.
“Bang!” His bare hand met the nine swords. It instantly caused these swords to go flying backward. Even Venerable Ninesword was not capable of affecting this result.
“Zzz—” At this moment, Jikong Wudi was completely refined into a bloody mist while he screamed miserably, a scream filled with despair and unwillingness.
Venerable Ninesword shouted: “Little animal!” Li Qiye still killed Jikong Wudi despite his protection — this would be the humiliation of a lifetime.
“Brother Ninesword, think again, do not break our formation. We will kill this junior in a bit to seek revenge for your nephew.” At this moment, another person appeared in a different corner. This was the Nine Worlds’ Chief Ambassador that escaped last time.
Venerable Ninesword glared at Li Qiye with fire in his eyes. Even though it was difficult, he still refrained from making a move.
Li Qiye looked around in the sky and smilingly said: “If you are already here, stop acting like cowardly turtles. After making Jikong Wudi lead me here, have the four of you suddenly turned coward?”
Many people shuddered after hearing this. They didn’t think that there were more experts hiding in this region.
“Buzz.” Outside of the chief ambassador and the venerable, two more people emerged in the sky. All of them took a separate corner to seal every single one of Li Qiye’s escape paths.
They were two old men. One had completely gray hair with a face full of wrinkles. He even seemed to have an unsteady posture.
However, this old man caused everyone to tremble. An ancestor from the Grand Middle Territory blurted out: “That’s, that’s the Divine Ancestor, the legendary ancestor of the Azure Mysterious Ancient Kingdom!”
The crowd was astounded after hearing this. Anyone would be wary of the most powerful and terrifying ancestor of this ancient kingdom.
“Divine Ancestor…” Even God-Monarchs were quivering inside. Many people could guess that this ancestor was definitely a Godking.
The reality was that no one really knew his true power because he had not appeared in a very long time. People hadn’t actually seen him in action at all.
However, Li Qiye didn’t care too much for the Divine Ancestor. There was a different person who caught his attention.
The other person in the sky was not old, only around middle-age. However, he wore an ancient style of clothing. He emanated a withered blood energy as if he had lived for countless years.
He didn’t have an earth-shattering atmosphere, but there was an unspeakable feeling to him. He was a divine mountain, forever unchanging amidst this world.
Among the four, the one that gave off the strongest feeling was neither Venerable Ninesword nor the Divine Ancestor, it was the middle-aged man ahead.
He stood in place with a cold demeanor while glaring at Li Qiye with the intent of seeing through him.
“I have seen him before.” An old paragon stared at the middle-aged man for a long time and became startled: “Back at the Heavenly Corpse Burial Ground, he, he is the last sect master of the legendary Thousand Emperors Gate!”
“The last sect master of the Thousand Emperors Gate?” Many people hadn’t heard of this sect before.
The crowd glanced at each other in confusion because this name was too foreign to them.
Even though his identity was revealed, no one really knew if he was the last sect master in terms of order or the only one left in this world.
“He actually came out of the burial ground alive. It seems like that place can truly increase one’s lifespan.” The old paragon murmured to himself.
This man was indeed the last sect master of the Thousand Emperors Gate. He disappeared from sight after boarding an underworld boat back then. Who would have thought that he would finally come out today?
Li Qiye smiled and slowly spoke while staring at the last sect master: “I’m not surprised at all that the Jewel Pillar Mortal King could cultivate an Immortal Physique successfully from sucking up to you.”
People were slightly jolted after hearing this. Ever since the rise of the Mortal King, people knew that there was an unfathomable character behind him as his backer. However, no one really knew who this person was.
But now, Li Qiye’s words revealed everything to the crowd. So it turned out that this Thousand Emperors Sect Master was the person supporting the Mortal King.
The Thousand Emperors Gate was a lineage with four emperors. Furthermore, it was four consecutive emperors. Back in its era, even the Soaring Immortal Sect was quite hesitant in its dealings with this lineage.
Despite being destroyed, it was still the lineage in this world with the most powerful laws, including Immortal Physiques!
With this last sect master helping him, it was no wonder why the Mortal King could rise and have an Immortal Physique. This was the real reason.
The last sect master stared at Li Qiye and uttered with a chilling glare: “A monstrosity like you must die in this generation!” 1
Since the start of time, there have been many Immortal Emperors. However, there were not too many that could be called monstrosities. For example, Immortal Emperor Jiao Heng, Immortal Emperor Fei Yang, and Empress Hong Tian!
The last sect master didn’t only want to kill Li Qiye as revenge for the Mortal King, a monster like Li Qiye reminded him of someone else who was just as devilish… Empress Hong Tian!
“Kill me?” Li Qiye smirked and leisurely said: “It wasn’t easy for you to obtain some lifespan, yet instead of cherishing it, you actually came here to oppose me. I’m considering whether I should capture you alive and slowly peel off your skin until you reveal the whereabouts of the Thousand Emperors Gate’s treasury.”
In those days, Empress Hong Tian destroyed the Thousand Emperors Gate. However, there was one difference compared to the Divine Beast Realm. The gate still had many disciples scattered outside. Some of them were of the ancestor level as well. After destroying the gate, the empress didn’t try to kill every single one of them, unlike what she did to the Divine Beast Realm when she uprooted them completely.
In this way, there were many fishes that slipped out of the net from the Thousand Emperors Gate. The majority of the legendary treasures from the sect were transferred away.
It was just a casual remark from Li Qiye. However, it excited many people. Some imperial lineages were secretly calculating how many Godkings had to personally take action in order to capture this last sect master alive.
The Thousand Emperors Gate was rumored to have the most amazing treasury in this world. If one could find it, then they would become rich overnight. This even applied to imperial lineages.
The last sect master chillingly responded: “Your death is imminent, yet you still do not repent!”
At this time, many people weren’t even listening to him. They were too busy calculating how to capture him alive.
Treasures always tempted people, especially one from a lineage with four emperors. The sect had been destroyed a very long time ago. Who wouldn’t be coveting all of these unowned treasures?
Chapter 1111: Immortal Dao Decapitator
“Is that so?” Li Qiye glanced at the last sect master and leisurely responded: “I actually want to see what treasures you brought. If the four of you are together, you must have brought something extremely heaven-shattering. Little existences like the Space Trample Mountain and Azure Mysterious Ancient Kingdom can only take out scrap metal, but you are different. What will you take out? What great treasures are still there from the coffers of the Thousand Emperors Gate?” He started laughing from anticipation after saying this.
The venerable shouted: “Little animal, we brought enough to cut you into pieces!”
His heart was dripping blood at this moment. They worked together to create the great formation. As long as Li Qiye entered, he would become powerless. Even if he was a God-Monarch, only annihilation would await him before Jikong Wudi’s Imperial Massacre.
In their eyes, if Jikong Wudi could kill Li Qiye, he would become famous once more and the throne would be his for the taking in the future.
But who would have thought that the sure-win blow ended with Jikong Wudi’s demise? This forced them to take things to the final step, making them use their ace!
This was something they wouldn’t want to do unless there was no other choice. Moreover, they definitely didn’t want to waste it on Li Qiye.
Li Qiye was quite heaven-defying, so the group knew that he must have some unfathomable dao protectors behind him. Because of this, the four of them decided to work together.
The last sect master even took out an extremely unbelievable item to use as the hidden ace to kill Li Qiye’s dao protectors.
However, his dao protectors had yet to appear, but they already had to use it on Li Qiye instead.
“Little animal, even if you are the reincarnation of an Immortal Emperor or the child of deities, you still won’t be able to escape death.” The Divine Ancestor shouted as well.
However, Li Qiye interrupted him with a dismissive wave: “Okay, stop boasting. So what if I kill your ancient kingdom’s disciples? It is only a sect with two emperors, a bunch of dogs that can’t reach the apex.”
Such words left the crowd slack-jawed. A sect with two emperors was only made up of a bunch of dogs? Then other great powers didn’t need to exist in this world since they were so pitiful.
But today, no one dared to retort. Who in the current generation could speak such words outside of Li Qiye?
“You…” The Divine Ancestor was trembling with anger.
The sect master of the Thousand Emperors Gate commanded: “Attack now to prevent further complications.”
“Clank—” With his order, the entire area was sealed. The heaven and earth were separated with Li Qiye trapped inside.
Four great decapitators sealed the four corners. They were lever-blades that seemed to be decapitating everything inside the radius.
Li Qiye was at the center of this dead zone and had no place to run due to the surrounding blades.
“Immortal Dao Decapitators.” Li Qiye slightly grimaced at the four blades.
Others didn’t know about them, but he did. They were not only capable of killing immortals and devils, even the heaven and earth could fall prey to their sharpness and incredible origin.
Whoever was inside their cutting range would be in great trouble and escape from this region was virtually impossible.
“What are those things?” Everyone trembled a bit after the decapitators appeared. In an instant, the experts reacted quickly and retreated. The weaker ones couldn’t respond in time and immediately fell limp to the ground.
Regardless of how far away they were, everyone felt an extreme sharpness cutting into their skin.
They felt that both time and space were severed along with the power of the grand dao. It seemed that the moment the blades fell, they would slash the entire world and rip off all relations.
At this time, the chief ambassador, Venerable Ninesword, the Divine Ancestor, and the last sect master each controlled one corner of the blades and aimed them at Li Qiye.
They used their longevity blood to bathe these decapitators while pushing them closer towards Li Qiye.
It wasn’t easy to exert the real power of these weapons. Even though the four were quite powerful, they still had to offer their longevity blood. Moreover, the faster the cutting speed, the more longevity blood would be required.
For people close to death like them, these drops of blood were extremely precious. Thus, they only used a small amount to push these chopping blades towards Li Qiye in the center.
The moment the blades cut off the four corners of this region, Li Qiye would be decapitated inside sooner or later.
“Pluff!” Blood dyed his clothes red while the blades had yet to cut him directly. Even though they were countless miles away, the terrifying edges had already left horrifying cuts on his body and made his blood spatter.
“Open!” Li Qiye shouted. His blood energy soared to the sky and began to derive a worldly law.
However, the forces of time, space, and grand dao had all been severed. It didn’t matter if one had powerful blood energy or the most profound laws in this world, all would become quite weak and be unable to exert their true power.
Li Qiye channeled a merit law with incredible defensive power. However, this defense became quite feeble without the grand dao supporting it. Under the force of the decapitators, the laws seemed fragile to the point of being negligible. It was instantly cut into pieces by the blades.
“Pluff! Pluff! Pluff!” Even more lacerations appeared on his blood-stained body shortly afterward.
“Open!” Li Qiye roared again and tried multiple times to counterattack. Alas, he couldn’t escape the all-severing property of the decapitators. His invincible arts were instantly severed while more wounds appeared on his body.
Venerable Ninesword cruelly shouted: “Little animal, keep on struggling. We will flay you into thin pieces just like fish.”
They continued to slowly empower the decapitators without any anxiety. The blades were still quite far from Li Qiye, but the sharpness emanating from them was still hurting him.
This scene made many people gasp and shiver. One paragon murmured: “They are still not cutting him directly. They’re so far away, but Fiercest already can’t withstand them. If we were in his place, we would have been cut to little pieces already.”
“Even Godkings might not be able to escape from this type of immortal blade!” An aghast spectator mumbled.
Everyone had seen Li Qiye’s powerful body before, but today, it was covered in wounds even before the blades reached him. How could they not be afraid of such terrifying blades?
“Open for me now!” Li Qiye howled again, but he was a struggling dog that couldn’t resist the blades. There was no spot on his body that was still untouched.
The four on the other side sneered repeatedly as they watched Li Qiye about to be cut into little pieces. They even deliberately slowed down so that the world could see the fate of those who challenged their prestige — a fate of being flayed into thin slices.
“What now?” Bai Jianzhen noticed that Li Qiye was no longer able to stand straight and could fall over at any time. With a shaken expression, she asked: “Should we help him?”
“No.” Mei Suyao shook her head: “The Young Noble must have a reason for telling us not to interfere earlier. We cannot ruin his business.”
“This is only his normal strength.” Li Shuangyan felt pain from seeing all the wounds, but she didn’t dare to take action: “Young Noble still has many killer moves left.”
She was aware of his full arsenal. At this time, he still hadn’t used an imperial weapon yet!
“Pop!” Eventually, under the constant channeling from the four, the decapitators inched closer. Li Qiye couldn’t hold back and suddenly fell over. He tried to get up several times but failed.
“It’s over for Fiercest.” Many people were shocked to see this. Some were even unwilling to watch.
“Bang!” While Li Qiye sat there awaiting death, a white hand descended from the sky and struck the four corners of this location, causing the earth to tremble.
Even the Immortal Dao Decapitators were shaken by this attack. Their brilliance started to flash uncertainly.
Someone shouted in high spirits: “Is that a Godking attacking?”
“Who dares to interfere?!” The venerable’s group was jolted from the quaking. They added even more longevity blood to control the decapitators. The blades emitted a terrifying immortal light. Anyone who came close would be slash into pieces by these rays.
