Chapter 1216: Visitors from the Earth Continent
Translator: Nyoi-Bo Studio Editor: Nyoi-Bo Studio
In the capital of Li Nation in the Xuanhuang Continent, a glorious glow bloomed above the clouds, like a gigantic round altar hanging across the sky, with bright strands of runes flowing in the air, and at the center a gap opened to the Void, where there was infinite darkness.
In the capital, the Emperor, all the officials and ministers, the aristocratic families, and great figures of various academies or sects were all gathered.
“They’re here, they’re finally here!” The hands of the Emperor were trembling he was so excited. He was at the peak of the Earth Celestial Stage and a nation’s ruler, but at this moment there was not a trace of his imposing demeanor.
“It is reported that the largest forces from the Earth Continent have arrived!” A man dressed in official’s clothing said in a serious tone.
Everyone was feeling uncertain and there was a clamor.
“Is there some grand event happening in the Xuanhuang Continent? Why are all those big shots here?”
“Something is amiss. We received news from them yesterday. They said they’re here for a visit, but it doesn’t look that simple.”
“Yes, the largest force in the Earth Continent of the Zhen Yuan Celestial Realm is the Litian Academy, followed by the Yunchen Academy, Linglong Hall, Wucang Pavilion, Heavenly Moon Palace, and so on. They were all forces affiliated with the Exploding Heavens Faction, and they all have come to the Xuanhuang Continent! This is absolutely unusual!”
“The question is…the Li Nation in the Xuanhuang Continent is not the most powerful. Although is ranked in the top ten, if all those big shots are really coming down, why wouldn’t they go to the most powerful Lu Nation instead? Why did they deliberately choose Li Nation?”
Everyone looked at the glow in the sky, and their doubts grew stronger and stronger.
Meanwhile, within the darkness at the center of the glow, a large number of figures were emerging. In the dim light, the crowd seemed to see a dog and an old man in the lead, and behind them a massive amount of silhouettes—it was akin to the descent of 1 million Demonic soldiers. There was an imposing aura shaking Heaven and Earth!
Those who were present, including the Emperor, the hundreds of officials and ministers, as well as many powerful forces, were unable to restrain the trembling of their knees.
“Li Baihe, the Emperor of Li Nation, respectfully welcomes all the seniors and elders from the Earth Continent for a visit.” Immediately, the Emperor of Li Nation lowered his head and covered his chest with one hand and spoke in a manner of respect and awe.
Subsequently, the people behind him all followed suit, and they shouted in unison, “Welcome all the seniors and elders from the Earth Continent for a visit!”
Then many figures in the clouds took a step forward. Buttface and Duan Jiude were in the lead. They were followed by Qin Xiangtian, the Dean of Litian Academy, Qin Sanli, the Deputy Dean, and many elite disciples from the Litian Academy. Then the Dean, Deputy Dean, and many elite disciples from the Yuncheng Academy, the Linglong Palace, Wucang Pavilion, Heavenly Moon Palace, and so on.
Everyone looked only at Buttface and Duan Jiude, ignoring all the others.
Duan Jiude scanned the surroundings and said, “I’ve counted. The dude is in this area called Li Nation. Let’s split up and search for him now!”
“Duan Jiude, Your Holiness condemns you. Make a clearer calculation now. Li Nation isn’t that huge, but it’s not small either. If we searched the whole nation, it would take more than ten days. Your Holiness is impatient.”
“D*mn it. If you’re so good at it, then you do it. If you can’t stop complaining. I can at least tell you that the dude is in the south of Li Nation.”
“South it is, all right, let’s go now. The dude is so dangerous and mighty, but he’s in danger now. I’m afraid there’s been a mishap, and we must save him now. Otherwise, no one can take revenge for the humiliation we suffered in the Heaven Continent!”
“Tut, tut, tut, if that kid knew what happened to Jiang Hongyan in the Heaven Continent, I’m afraid…”
“I’m afraid, your *ss. Your Holiness is really angry this time. If I didn’t go back and seek revenge with the dude, Your Holiness’s Mighty King’s King will be written in reverse!” Buttface was fuming with anger and was showing a rare expression of ferocity that only happened once in 100 years—ferocity like a wolf.
Buttface waved his hands and hollered, “Let’s go south with Your Holiness!”
“Yes!” Behind him, the Litian Academy and all the other forces shouted in unison. It was magnificent, their roar was deafening!
Many of the aces in the Li Nation were horrified, and they couldn’t believe what they were seeing and hearing.
What is this situation?
The majestic Litian Academy, Yunchen Academy, Linglong Hall, and so on were obeying a dog’s order?
Could it be…
The Emperor of Li Nation and his ministers, as well as aces from the powerful forces, all looked at each other, and they came up with the same answer—it was the Exploding Heavens Faction!
“All of you follow us too!” A cold voice resonated from the sky.
“Yes.” The Emperor of Li Nation replied immediately.
The speaker was an Elder from the Heavenly Moon Palace who functioned as a messenger between the Earth Continent and the Xuanhuang Continent. People with status and prestige in the Xuanhuang Continent, such as the Emperor of Li Nation, all knew this Elder. Nobody dared to turn a deaf ear to what he said.
Immediately, the Emperor of Li Nation, together with hundreds of officials and ministers, as well as the big shots of the major forces, set out one after another. It was a dense and massive crowd covering Heaven and Earth, like a gigantic black cloud, passing through the sky, rushing to the south of Li Nation.
There was a famous academy called Seven Stars Academy in that area.
Meanwhile, at the foot of the mountain of the Seven Stars Academy, Xu Que was still sitting cross-legged in the air, gradually reclaiming the Celestial Core Power from outside of his body. However, the internal state of his body hadn’t been completely stabilized. He had used up his last tens of thousands of Acting Tough Points and exchanged tens of thousands of medicinal items. He devoured them madly to make up for his lost Celestial Core Power.
Just as the System had said, the hole in the World of Green Lotus needed a large quantity of Celestial Core Power to mend. Moreover, he would need more Celestial Core Power to complete the third growth stage of the Chaotic Green Lotus. It was hard to imagine how difficult the whole process would be, especially now that he was in an unfavorable situation. Those tens of thousands of medicinal items consumed into his body could barely narrow the hole a little.
Meanwhile, Sword Spirit was turned into a black mist, holding the sharp sword Celestial Artifact, still in the fight with more than ten aces in the Human Celestial Stage. Both sides were equally powerful, and no one was able to take the advantageous position.
Lin Yuxi stood aside and was in a daze, her gaze always on Xu Que. Suddenly, her heart went a little cold, and she could feel prickling.
When Xu Que had woken up, from his complicated gaze to his silent withdrawal, the whole process was just like the lyrics of a song—”Are you serious about taking that half a step back? That little movement still hurts so much…”
Yes, that little movement was like an estrangement, how hurtful it was. But Lin Yuxi didn’t blame Xu Que. On the contrary, she was bitterly remorseful and hated herself.
If she hadn’t made that phone call…if she hadn’t broken up with him…if she hadn’t taken the initiative to tell him to let go of the past, would all this be different?
Unfortunately, in this world…there was no answer to if!
“Maybe I really should let it go. I shouldn’t have followed Master over here, and she wouldn’t have died because of me…” Lin Yuxi murmured and tears were falling from her eyes!
At this time, a sound pierced through her space. Lin Yuxi suddenly collected herself, and she looked up. Her expression suddenly changed.
Young Master Ming was riding on a flame, bolting across the sky. He was holding a Magic Weapon in his hand. It was a blood-red Long Halberd, and it looked like he was going to strike toward Xu Que, who was still sitting cross-legged.
“No!” Lin Yuxi immediately screamed and rushed forward in an instant.
With the bursting of a glow, the scene in the sky seemed to have been frozen in time. Lin Yuxi appeared in front of Xu Que. Her graceful, slender body had been penetrated by the Long Halberd. Blood dripped slowly along the Long Halberd. She turned her head with difficulty to look at Xu Que, whose eyes were still tightly shut. A smile appeared on her pale face. Her tears were fused with blood from the corners of her mouth as it slowly trickled down her cheeks!
“Sorry!” She used her last breath to apologize softly.
