The surging white radiance enveloped the entire area of the Waste Realm’s exit. The sound of explosions continued to be heard. The violent murderous aura was frantically and furiously engulfing everything! The whole process lasted for more than an hour. No one dared to approach it.
Finally, the sounds of the explosion died down, the murderous aura slowly subsided, and the dazzling brilliance gradually faded. Qin Sanli and the others could finally open their eyes. They looked at the battlefield and were dumbfounded. The whole area outside the exit of the Waste Realm had been reduced to a desert. It had become completely lifeless. Once a fertile land, it had now lost all its vitality—it was reduced to a land of yellow sand. There was a layer of dust floating in the air which gave off a sense of decay.
“The land…died!” Someone muttered in a low voice. He spoke on behalf of everyone.
Could a land be seen as a living creature? It was a question that could have many different kinds of answers, but, no matter whether it was alive or not, the first idea that popped into their heads was that the land was dead now!
A Terrain Obliterating Spell had exhausted the energy of all the land. It had bombarded more than ten aces at the Heaven Celestial Stage into waste. It had even seriously damaged an ace at the Golden Celestial Stage. Eventually, the surrounding land became a wasteland where all living things ceased to exist.
And all this was done by the Exploding Heavens Faction!
“It’s too horrible!”
“King Equipment Refiner Liu is in the Golden Celestial Stage. If he hadn’t succeeded in escaping, I’m afraid he would have died here!”
“I saw the lower half of his body had been crushed and only the upper body escaped. I wonder where he is now!”
“The Exploding Heavens Faction…they’re really formidable!”
“They’re merely in the Medium Stage of the Human Celestial Stage and already so frightening. If they’re from the Earth Celestial Stage or the Heaven Celestial Stage, does that mean that they will be in control of the entire Earth Continent?”
“Not only the Earth Continent, I’m afraid. No one in the three continents of the World of Near Celestials can overwhelm them!” The aces and disciples from many forces were amazed. It was a widely discussed everywhere.
Qin Sanli was deeply shocked. When he met Xu Que, he only regarded him as a good junior and wanted him to marry his granddaughter. Unexpectedly, after months of disappearance, that fellow had developed to such a terrible stage. He had even set up a trap to kill so many aces in the Heaven Celestial Stage. At last, he even succeeded in seriously wounding King Equipment Refiner Liu and escaping.
Anyway, after today’s battle, the Exploding Heavens Faction would be well-known throughout the world. Within the Zhen Yuan Celestial Realm, the most powerful faction would definitely be the Exploding Heavens Faction; no one would dare to challenge and fight it!
Just then, a weak voice could be heard.
Qin Sanli was startled at first, but he quickly collected himself, “Elder brother!”
He was so astonished and absorbed by the battle that he had almost forgotten that his eldest brother, Qin Xiangtian, was also in the range of the explosion.
But upon hearing his voice, he was relieved that his eldest brother hadn’t turned into a victim!
“Cough…” Qin Xiangtian stood not far away. He was very weak and was coughing blood constantly. Although Xu Que’s Thunder Illusion Body sent him out before the big explosion, he was still too close to the spell. He was strong but the blast waves had caused his internal injury. As for the Thunder Illusion Body, it was engulfed by the explosion at the edge and was burned into ashes.
“Elder brother, are you okay?” Qin Sanli rushed forward, took out a medicinal item, and put it into Qin Xiangtian’s mouth.
Qin Xiangtian took a deep breath, looked behind him, shook his head, and sighed, “Unfortunately, in this battle, the Exploding Heavens Faction also lost a lot of aces! One of them took me out of the area but he couldn’t escape death!”
Qin Sanli sighed lightly.
He had a clear picture of the battle. There were more than ten aces, but only Xu Que took out a Celestial Grade Amulet and escaped with serious injuries. As for the others, all of them were sacrificed in the battle—crushed into ashes by the murderous aura.
The strength of the Exploding Heavens Faction was instilling fear in others! After all, they only had cultivations in the Human Celestial Stage!
“Elder brother, we’ll wait for your recovery. We can talk about the rest later on!” Qin Sanli helped Qin Xiangtian up. He was full of worries. He felt that Qin Xiangtian’s injury was more serious than he had realized—it must be treated as soon as possible!
“My injuries are all right, Third brother. We really have to thank the Exploding Heavens Faction. I need to heal my injuries with Secluded Meditation. Where shall we go now?” Qin Xiangtian looked at Qin Sanli in a serious manner.
The incident that took place this day was supposed to be the Dingtian Academy and the Equipment Refining Sect eradicating the Exploding Heavens Faction. At the same time, they would take the opportunity to eliminate the Litian Academy and several other forces. But because of the dominance of the Exploding Heavens Faction, all those ideas were completely turned on their heads. The leaders of the Dingtian Academy, the Equipment Refining Sect, and more than ten leaders of other major forces died tragically.
What this meant was that this was equivalent to the Dingtian Academy, the Equipment Refining Sect, and ten other forces basically being removed from the Zhen Yuan Celestial Realm. Without the support of the strong aces, those forces couldn’t survive at all. They wouldn’t be able to escape the revenge of their enemies!
The Litian Academy and several other surviving forces, on the contrary, had become the final winners. They would be able to share the resources of the Dingtian Academy and more than a dozen other major forces.
But now, instead of rushing to heal his injuries, Qin Xiangtian solemnly reminded Qin Sanli to properly manage the matters of the Exploding Heavens Faction. Qin Sanli understood how crucial this matter was. He nodded his head and replied, “Elder brother, I know. I’ll unite with several other major forces now. When the news of this battle has spread, I’ll immediately announce to the Zhen Yuan Celestial Realm that the Exploding Heavens Faction is the hero, and they’ll receive half of all the spoils of war!”
“No!” Qin Xiangtian immediately shook his head and replied in a resolute manner, “I want you to announce that from today on, the Litian Academy will become an affiliate of the Exploding Heavens Faction, led by the Exploding Heavens Faction, and willing to supply geniuses for the Exploding Heavens Faction!”
“Wha…what?” Qin Sanli immediately stared with his eyes wide open. This was difficult for him to believe.
On the same day, the news of the battle on the edge of the Waste Realm was spread near and far. It caused a sensation in the whole of the Zhen Yuan Celestial Realm overnight.
“Oh, my god! More than ten geniuses in the Human Celestial Stage from the Exploding Heavens Faction have annihilated the aces in the Heaven Celestial Stage from the Dingtian Academy, the Equipment Refining Sect, and more than ten other forces?”
“Even King Equipment Refiner Liu was seriously wounded in the explosion!”
“Ha, ha, how is this possible? It must be a rumor!”
“This is simply ridiculous, laughable!”
Many people who lived far away from the Waste Realm shook their heads and treated the news as a joke. But that evening, the major forces headed by the Litian Academy announced one after another that they would voluntarily become affiliates of the Exploding Heavens Faction—the Exploding Heavens Faction would be leading them in the future.
As soon as the news became public, it was akin to a heavy hammer that had pounded on everyone’s hearts in the Zhen Yuan Celestial Realm. The initial doubts and skepticism had quieted down. In the next few days, people who had returned from the Waste Realm and had witnessed the battle were spotted with odd expressions.
Unknowingly, they had been saved by the Exploding Heavens Faction! Thus, many people vowed that they owed a favor to the Exploding Heavens Faction and, if necessary, would do their best to help them. Among those people were many gifted disciples from the Dingtian Academy and the Equipment Refining Sect. All of a sudden, the three words Exploding Heavens Faction became the most spoken in the Zhen Yuan Celestial Realm. They had won the hearts of the people. They recognized the Exploding Heavens Faction as the number one faction in the Zhen Yuan Celestial Realm.
However, since the battle in the Waste Realm, no one had heard any news of the Exploding Heavens Faction for an entire month. They went quiet and seemed to disappear! But this time, no one dared to think that they had been annihilated. In fact, they thought that the faction liked to keep a low profile and didn’t like to be in the limelight.
Their silence was akin to a ferocious tiger who was taking a nap. Once awakened, it could be the Armageddon!
Just then, inside the pitch-dark Void, studded with stars, it was peaceful. A figure was floating restfully—he seemed to have fallen into a deep sleep. The scene was incomparably serene. He was wrapped in a green halo as a resistance against the strong winds and razor-sharp Qi. He was slowly drifting toward a bright region ahead!
