“Lord, we must kill this brat. His improvement speed is so fast. If we don’t kill him now and give him some more time, he might grow to a stage that we can’t control at all.”
The Lord nodded.
“I naturally know about this, but now is not the right time to handle him.
“I’m not strong enough to enter other universes. The universe will in his universe has been resisting me.
“If you go in, you’ll only be sending yourselves to death. Right now, you’re just a bunch of ants in front of him.”
Hearing that, everyone present could not help but clench their fists.
Of course, they were not angry at the Lord, but at Ye Xiao for advancing to the Celestial Sovereign realm in such a short period of time.
It was simply enviable to the point that their eyes turned red.
“Then, Lord, what should we do next?”
“First, settle the matters at hand. Put aside Universe 78 for now. Seize the time to deal with the other universes and obtain the World Creation fragments of the other universes. This will give me sufficient strength to successfully advance to the Supreme Sovereign realm.
“At that time, no one will be able to stop me. All of you can receive my gift and advance to the Celestial Sovereign realm.”
Hearing that, everyone present could not help but become excited. Their eyes revealed a hint of fanaticism.
The Celestial Sovereign realm!
They were about to become Celestial Sovereign-level powerhouses.
Once they were able to become Celestial Sovereign-level powerhouses, they would have the means to survive in the land of nothingness. They would also have the means to control a universe on their own.
At that time, they would be able to encircle the land and become kings. They would obtain a universe that belonged to them. Then, they would establish a new force. Finally, they would use that force to help them plunder the World Creation fragment, they would be able to obtain the power of the origin laws.
In the end, they would also have the opportunity to become Supreme Sovereigns.
At that time, they would truly be able to break free from the shackles of anyone and become super cultivators who could truly control their own destinies.
That was their most ingrained wish. If it was not for that wish, they would not have been able to become the lackeys of the Lord.
Humans were like that. In order to successfully advance, even if their current cultivation was already very strong, they had no choice but to give up their dignity in exchange for more opportunities to improve.
Following the Lord of Heaven’s order, those Sacred Sovereigns all began to fly out and carry out their respective missions.
They needed to go out and guide those existences that had plundered enough origin law energy of their own universe and had already successfully advanced to the Sacred Sovereign with 12 apertures. Then, they would bring them here and let the Lord of Heaven devour them.
To strengthen the Lord’s power.
In the void, Ye Xiao had just arrived at a place where he saw several rays of resplendent light bursting out from the darkness in the distance.
Those few rays of resplendent light were incomparably dazzling, but in the vast dark void, they looked like tiny fireflies, flickering about. It was simply impossible to illuminate more places.
Only when Ye Xiao arrived did he realize that it was actually a battle between a few cultivators at the level of Sacred Sovereigns.
He could not help but feel that it was a little strange.
It was not because they were fighting. It was because, in that sort of void that no one managed, it was only natural for a battle to occur.
However, what made him curious was that the auras on those few people were all the same. They all came from the same universe.
Since they all came from the same universe, why did they fight like that?
He blocked his own aura and moved closer to listen to the other party’s words.
He wanted to gather some useful information.
“Ling Shuang Zi! You are simply an extremely shameless traitor. You actually stole the World Creation fragments of our universe. What exactly do you want to do? Don’t you know that doing so will cause our entire universe to lose its origin law energy? In the end, no one will be able to advance to the Celestial Sovereign realm?”
Ling Shuang Zi could not help but let out a cold laugh.
“The ones who can’t successfully advance to the Celestial Sovereign realm are all of you, not me! Why should I care?
“If I don’t take away the World Creation fragments, I won’t even be able to reach the current cultivation level of the Sacred Sovereign with 12 apertures!
“Now that I have these World Creation fragments, as long as I find the Lord of Heaven and give all these World Creation fragments to him, he will be able to let me successfully advance to the Celestial Sovereign realm.
“As for you guys, tough luck.”
“Ling Shuang Zi! You shameless b*stard, I will definitely not let you off. For your own selfish reasons, you actually prevented us from advancing to the Celestial Sovereign realm! I will definitely settle this score with you.”
“Then come and try! Let’s see if you have the means to keep me here. But let me tell you, don’t blame me for not warning you. Since I have already arrived at the void, the subordinates of the Celestial Sovereign will definitely come looking for me as soon as possible. When they arrive, you will be in big trouble.
“Therefore, I advise you to leave as soon as possible. Otherwise, you will all die here.”
“Do you think that we will still believe your nonsense? You are just trying to trick us into leaving!
“Let me tell you, even if someone comes, you will still not be able to escape. We will definitely kill you, the traitor.”
The eyes of those people could not help but turn red as if they had gone mad.
There was nothing they could do. If they could not take back the World Creation fragment, then the power of the origin laws of the entire world would be lost, and they would never be able to successfully advance to that realm.
That level was an existence that they had dreamed of all their lives. Even if they might not be able to really advance to that level, as long as there was a glimmer of hope, they did not want to let it go.
After reaching the Celestial Sovereign realm, their lifespan and strength would be greatly increased.
If they could not advance, no matter how long they could live at the moment, sooner or later, they would turn into dust and disappear into the universe.
The battle was very intense. Everyone was almost at full power, using all of their strength.
One side was doing it for their cultivation and future, while the other side was doing it for their own lives.
Both sides raised their strength to the limit.
If those people were fighting in the same universe, they would have probably completely destroyed that universe by then!
However, because they were currently fighting in the void, that place was really too big, so they did not cause much of a stir.
After Ye Xiao heard their conversation, he could not help but narrow his eyes slightly.
What he hated the most was traitors. So many traitors had appeared in his universe. If it was not because he was powerful enough, his universe might have already been destroyed. It was also impossible for him to advance to the current level.
After he saw other people also becoming traitors, he definitely could not bear it.
More importantly, the traitors of that universe also obeyed that Lord, which made him even angrier.
That was because his enemy was that Lord.
He needed to stop that person. Since he wanted to find the Lord, he must know his location. He could use him to find the Lord.
He might not go directly to fight with the other party, but he could confirm the other party’s location first.
Only by knowing oneself and the enemy would one be undefeated in 100 battles.
However, just as he was about to make a move… Several auras flew over from afar.
Those auras were extremely terrifying. The strength of each aura was above the Sacred Sovereign with 12 apertures.
“This is… ?”
Ye Xiao stopped his actions of wanting to go forward and looked into the distance.
Meanwhile, Ling Shuang Zi, who was currently fighting, suddenly laughed loudly in excitement.
“Hahaha… They’re here! It’s them. They’re here to pick me up. You’re all dead now. I’ve long advised you to get lost. It was you who didn’t listen. Now, you can’t run away.
“It’s just right. If I can get your blood essence, I can further improve my cultivation.
“Hahahaha… The heavens are really helping me.”
The faces of the few Sacred Sovereigns from the other universe changed drastically when they saw that scene.
At first, they thought that the other party was simply giving them an excuse to scare them away, but they did not expect it to be true.
At that point, they were in big trouble.
The other party’s strength was obviously not lower than theirs, but the number of the other party far exceeded theirs. Under such circumstances, it was very disadvantageous for them, and it was 100 percent likely that they would die.
“Everyone, since things have come to this, we can only fight them to the death. No matter what, we must think of a way to take back the World Creation fragment. Otherwise, even if we go back, we will never have the hope of advancing to the Celestial Sovereign realm.
“If that’s the case, even if we go back, what’s the point?”
What he said was true, and the other Sacred Sovereigns also expressed their support.
“Speed up the attack and take down Ling Shuang Zi before they arrive!”
As they spoke, everyone immediately increased the speed of their attacks.
Ling Shuang Zi did not expect that they were actually not afraid. On the contrary, the more they fought, the braver they became. In an instant, they were so frightened that their faces turned as pale as wax.
“D*mn it! You guys are a bunch of lunatics.”
He spat fiercely and no longer had the time to exchange blows with them. He turned around and started running frantically, chasing straight after those figures.
Ye Xiao did not make a move at that moment. He wanted to see where the other party would run to in the end and whether he could follow the clues to find that Lord.
Ling Shuang Zi resisted with great difficulty, but he was not the other party’s match at all. The other party had too many people, so he was unable to retaliate at all.
Although it was impossible for a powerhouse of that level to end the battle in an instant, Ling Shuang Zi was really afraid when facing a few madmen. He really could not display his strength at all.
Being suppressed by them, he was captured in the blink of an eye.
He let out an angry roar and was captured by two of the Sacred Sovereigns.
“You guys go first. We’ll cover the rear here. Otherwise, none of us will be able to escape.”
The other Sacred Sovereigns were prepared to stay.
A new round of battle was about to start again.
After the Sacred Sovereigns under the Lord of heaven arrived, they did not say a word of nonsense and directly started fighting.
They held the advantage in numbers and easily suppressed those few people.
The situation turned around in an instant.
Initially, they were the ones who used their advantage in numbers to take down Ling Shuang Zi. Afterward, in the blink of an eye, they were suppressed by others using the advantage of numbers.
One had to say that the tables had turned.
Ye Xiao was also prepared to make a move at that time.
It was not that he specifically wanted to help the other party.
He was not that noble.
The reason why he wanted to make a move was only that the enemy of the enemy was definitely a friend. In that case, based on the principle of cooperation and reciprocity, it was not impossible for him to lend a hand a little.
However, before he had the time to make a move, another unforeseen event occurred.
That unforeseen event was much more powerful than the subordinates of the Lord of Heaven from earlier.
At that time, a total of 20 Sacred Sovereigns rushed over from another direction to suppress the subordinates of the Lord of Heaven!
“The lackeys of Lord of Heaven Yin Shi, who gave you the courage to barge into the territory of the Void Alliance?”
“Lord of Heaven Yin Shi, is this the title of that Lord?”
Ye Xiao could not help but mutter. After remembering that name, he would especially look for him in the future.
At that moment, the expressions of the various Sacred Sovereigns under the Lord of Heaven Yin Shi were not too good either.
They had just rushed over and had no time to snatch Ling Shuang Zi back. In the end, they were caught by the people of the Void Alliance.
They would probably lose quite a lot.
If they retreated, they would not be able to obtain the fragment in Ling Shuang Zi’s hands. However, if they did not retreat, who knew how many of their Sacred Sovereigns would fall?
No matter what, it was not a worthwhile choice for them!
They were really unlucky.
“Everyone from the Void Alliance, our Lord of Heaven Yin Shi does not have any grudges with you. This area is also a public area. It seems a little illogical for you to act so rashly.”
“Then there’s no need for you to meddle in other people’s business. This area has already been divided under our Void Alliance. If you cause trouble here, you must be prepared to receive punishment.”
“Since when has this area become your Void Alliance’s territory?”
“Regardless of what you think, it is our territory so deal with it.”
“You! Don’t go too far. Do you really think that we’re easy to bully?
“Then let’s give it a try. I’ve been displeased with your Void Alliance for a long time. Let’s have a competition today to see who is stronger and who is weaker!”
The great battle began once again. The battle was incomparably intense, and the methods were so powerful that they made one’s hair stand on end.
At that time, in the void, there were many places that were lit up.
That was because the radiance of the battle was really too intense.
Ye Xiao did not make a move.
At that moment, he suddenly thought of a good idea.
If those people continued fighting like that, there would definitely be many casualties. If he took the opportunity to absorb all the fallen ones, his strength would probably increase by a large margin.
With his current cultivation level, it was already very difficult for him to advance quickly. While right in front of him was an opportunity!
