A strand of dazzling golden light flew across the void and landed heavily on Yi Zhong’s body, creating splendid sparkles in the sky. CRACK! Yi Zhong tried to block the attack with his arm, but the arm was broken on impact. He turned pale and fell to the ground, spitting out blood. It was quite obvious that Xu Que’s attack had broken Yi Zhong’s arm and caused internal bleeding!
Everyone who was watching this scene was totally shocked. They never expected that a sovereign of the Divine Farmer Clan who was at the Initial Stage of the Heaven Celestial could be seriously wounded by an old man at the Half-Celestial Stage. This was totally impossible! Even though they had seen it with their own eyes, they still felt there was something wrong about it. The strength gap between the Half-Celestial Stage and the Heaven Celestial Stage was too large, and it couldn’t even be bridged by a Holy Physique! The point was that Yi Zhong was more powerful than ordinary cultivators at the Heaven Celestial Stage. As a powerful sovereign, how could he be defeated in such an easy way?
“I’m afraid Elder Xu has concealed his real Cultivation Stage!” A Jade Lake guardian at the Golden Celestial Stage sent a message surreptitiously to Bai Cailing, while looking at her in a very serious manner. A cultivator who could conceal his Cultivation Stage and not be discovered by them would at least be a Golden Celestial of the Great All-Embracing Heaven!
Bai Cailing nodded her head slightly in agreement. She was also surprised, and she didn’t believe that Elder Xu, Xu Que’s father, was just at the Half-Celestial Stage because it made a mockery of common sense. Only the Golden Celestial of the Great All-Embracing Heaven could conceal his Celestial Stage from cultivators at the Golden Celestial Stage!
If this was the case, all the rest of the issues that had happened previously ever since Elder Xu had arrived in the Jade Lake made sense. A Golden Celestial of the Great All-Embracing Heaven was definitely able to revive the peach trees and dispel the morbid Qi. Things that were impossible for the Jade Lake’s Holy Mother could be realized by another Golden Celestial of the Great All-Embracing Heaven, because all Golden Celestials of the Great All-Embracing Heaven were great at different things!
“I certainly didn’t expect that Xu Que’s father would be so powerful! I guess I have always underestimated Xu Que!” Bai Cailing shook her head with a wry smile.
At the time she had first met Xu Que, Bai Cailing had broken into the Refined Moon Palace and was attacked by some people. She was forced to heal her wounds on a low-level continent. While there, she met Xu Que and went to the Refined Moon Palace again together with him. At that time, Xu Que hadn’t even reached the Half-Celestial Stage. Bai Cailing believed he would never be able to come to the Heaven Continent in the future.
She definitely didn’t expect that Xu Que’s father would be so powerful–in fact, he had shocked everyone in the Heaven Continent. There were only a few Golden Celestials of the Great All-Embracing Heaven on the Heaven Continent. Apparently, Elder Xu had been keeping a low profile for many years. Now, when his son, Xu Que, arrived at the Heaven Continent, Elder Xu decided to make himself known.
“Holy Virgin, you really had no ideas about the background of this Elder Xu?” Ji Wuyun asked as he looked at Bai Cailing. He had also figured out that this Elder Xu was definitely not at the Half-Celestial Stage. Almost all the rest of the people in this area had also realized it. And now they all fixed their eyes on Bai Cailing. They wanted some answers. After all, this old man was brought here by the Jade Lake. People believed that the Jade Lake must know something. However, Bai Cailing only shook her head silently. She really knew very little about this Elder Xu, who was Xu Que’s father. Otherwise, why would she have tried to stop him from having a duel with Yi Zhong?
“It seems he must be a secluded big shot!” Ji Wuyun said, looking at Bai Cailing thoughtfully. Since this old man chose to live in the shadows, no matter if Bai Cailing knew something about him or not, she would never tell anything about him to them.
“However, what I am most interested in is how did Elder Xu come into this ancient battlefield without being detected by the restrictive spell at the entrance if he is really a Golden Celestial of the Great All-Embracing Heaven?” Ji Wuyun asked with a curious expression.
Hearing that, the rest of the people were also surprised. Bai Cailing was also a bit stunned. The restrictive spell at the entrance of this ancient battlefield was very powerful. It could prevent cultivators whose Cultivation Stage was higher than the Golden Celestial Stage from entering this area. Even a Golden Celestial of the Great All-Embracing Heaven was not able to outsmart that restrictive spell easily. Unless…the actual Cultivation Stage of Elder Xu was much higher than the Golden Celestial of the Great All-Embracing Heaven! At the thought of this, Bai Cailing’s heart beat even faster for she was scared by this idea. Above the Golden Celestial of the Great All-Embracing Heaven, there were the Celestial King, the Celestial Prime, and the Celestial Emperor!
For a long time, many Golden Celestials of the Great All-Embracing Heaven, including the Jade Lake’s Holy Mother, used to mention vaguely that the Celestial Kings, the Celestial Primes, and even the Celestial Emperors were not extinct but sunk in a deep sleep, and they would wake up sooner or later. This statement was quite popular several thousand years ago. However, nobody in this world had ever seen a cultivator at the level of the Celestial King or higher. Therefore, people stopped talking about them, and many people believed they wouldn’t wake up in their lifetimes or at least not in the near future!
But now, this Elder Xu’s identity had totally shocked Bai Cailing and all the rest of the people in this area. At the beginning, people thought Elder Xu might be a Golden Celestial of the Great All-Embracing Heaven who could conceal his Cultivation Stage from cultivators at the Golden Celestial Stage. However, a Golden Celestial of the Great All-Embracing Heaven could never outsmart the restrictive spell in this ancient battlefield by concealing his actual Cultivation Stage. Now people were shocked by this next speculation, which was based on the previous two facts.
Soon all the people fixed their eyes on Xu Que with a combination of fear and curiosity. Does all this mean the Cultivation Stage of this Elder Xu who is Xu Que’s father has reached the Celestial King or an even higher stage? Does it mean he has just woken up after many years’ sleeping? And is this the reason for the Lifeless Qi in his body? People were making all kinds of guesses, but nobody dared to ask Xu Que. After all, they didn’t dare to offend the Celestial King or the Celestial Prime, whose strength seemed to have passed anything they had ever seen or had any knowledge about.
At the same time, at the center of the altar, Yi Zhong stood up, holding his arm, which had been broken by Xu Que. His forehead was covered by a cold sweat. He pressed his left hand tightly on his broken right arm. A cloud with the intense smell of elixir gushed out of his body. The next moment, his broken right arm and his internal wounds started to heal at a stunning speed.
Holy sh*t! Xu Que was shocked. He didn’t believe what he was seeing. He wondered if this guy also had an Automatic Recovery Function like the one he had. However, the elixir smell on Yi Zhong’s body reassured Xu Que. It seemed as if this elixir smell came from Yi Zhong’s body. It was as if his body was an elixir that could heal all wounds.
“His All Elixir Ethereal Physique is true to its name!” Ji Wuyun said in a low voice at this time. The rest of the sovereigns also agreed, nodding their heads. Indeed, the All Elixir Ethereal Physique was quite extraordinary! Yi Zhong could become a sovereign and a candidate for the Divine Farmer Clan’s Holy Son because he had his own unique magic arts!
The All Elixir Ethereal Physique was the extraordinary physique handed down from the ancestors of the Divine Farmer Clan. However, the bloodline inherited by most of their descendants was not pure enough and couldn’t reach the level of the All Elixir Ethereal Physique. Yi Zhong’s bloodline was the purest among all those descendants. Now, after cultivating with numerous precious resources of the Divine Farmer Clan, Yi Zhong had managed to obtain the All Elixir Ethereal Physique at last. People who had this physique were born with the extraordinary ability to recover from anything. They were also immune to all kinds of toxins. Even when they were seriously wounded, they could heal their wounds without the assistance of an elixir as long as there was breath in their bodies! It was exactly like a wall lizard that could recover after losing its tail.
However, Xu Que had no idea about this physique at all. Up until now, he only knew about a few physiques, such as the Mighty Body, the Divine Being, the Holy Physique, Xiao Rou’s Five Elements Chaotic Body, Jiang Hongyan’s Body of Heavenly Kismet, and the Divine Being of Taoist Fetus of the Sage Sect. So, when he heard Ji Wuyun’s words, Xu Que was surprised and said with a faint smile, “The All Elixir Ethereal Physique? Is it quite powerful?”
Is it very powerful? Xu Que thought to himself. He had the System’s Automatic Recovery Function, which seemed as if it could rival this so-called All Elixir Ethereal Physique!
“It is none of your business! Old fart, I know you have concealed your Cultivation Stage. You don’t have the guts to show your real strength here. Otherwise, you would have been killed by the restrictive spell in this place!” Yi Zhong yelled and stared at Xu Que coldly. His wounds were completely healed, and his face was full of killing intent. He reached his hand up into the air, and the black halberd flew back into it.
He had made up his mind to continue the fight because he had no other choice, even though he knew Xu Que’s Cultivation Stage might be a Celestial King or higher. He couldn’t take back what he had done. In fact, he was regretting what he had done just now. He shouldn’t have sworn about his future. However, everyone had heard his oath. So, he had to fight. If he was not able to kill Xu Que today, it was impossible for him to reach the Golden Celestial Stage in the future, which was something even worse than death for him. So, he had no choice but to continue the fight!
“Oh? You know I have concealed my Cultivation Stage?” Xu Que said with a smile. In fact, Xu Que knew people in this area were not fools. Therefore, they must have figured out the fact that he had concealed his cultivation stage after his powerful strength had been displayed in this place. Of course, Xu Que had no idea people in this area believed his Cultivation Stage had reached the Celestial King or an even higher stage!
Therefore, Xu Que’s words totally stunned everyone for they thought their guess was correct. Yi Zhong, however, was at a point of no return. He said as he stared at Xu Que with magnificent killing intent, “Old fart, I don’t care what your actual Cultivation Stage is. I don’t care whether you use your real strength or not! You must die today!”
BOOM! With a thundering sound, the black halberd in Yi Zhong’s hand trembled a bit. The black metal on its surface started to fall off slowly. A dazzling golden halberd appeared!
“It is a…Medium-grade Celestial Artifact!” Someone in the crowd shouted in surprise. Yi Zhong’s weapon was a Medium-grade Celestial Artifact! It seemed that the black metal on its surface was simply a kind of seal that was used to lock this long halberd into an identification as a Low-grade Celestial Artifact. Now, the seal had fallen off and the actual grade of the halberd was revealed.
“Heh, heh, I planned to use this as my surprise element during the competition for the position of the Holy Son. I didn’t expect I would have to use it now!” Yi Zhong sneered as he looked at Xu Que, holding tightly to his golden halberd.
All the people present were shocked. They had figured out what Yi Zhong’s plan was! With this Medium-grade Celestial Artifact, Yi Zhong was trying to force Elder Xu to reveal his actual Cultivation Stage by forcing him to use his real strength in this fight Once Elder Xu revealed his actual Cultivation Stage, he could be killed by the restrictive spell that controlled this place. If he continued to conceal his Cultivation Stage, he could be killed by the Medium-grade Celestial Artifact long halberd.
After all, the restrictive spells in this Ancient Battlefield of Divinities were powerful enough to kill deities.Therefore, the Celestial Kings, Celestial Primes, or even Celestial Emperors would also be wiped out in this place! All the people who were watching this take place nodded their heads to show their appreciation of Yi Zhong’s plan. It was a smart move indeed! And it could save him from ruin.
“If Elder Xu’s Cultivation Stage is really higher than Celestial King, he will be killed here today. And if it’s not, it will not be easy for him to defeat Yi Zhong, who is supported by a Medium-grade Celestial Artifact!” Ji Wuyun, who was standing at the edge of the altar, said seriously at this time. Although they knew the strength of a cultivator whose Cultivation Stage was higher than the Celestial King would be extremely horrible, this place was filled with powerful restrictive spells. Even a Celestial King had to cheat the restrictive spells by concealing his Cultivation Stage, so that he could come into this place. So, if Elder Xu was killed here when he revealed his actual Cultivation Stage, his death would be terrible! It was a pity that Elder Xu had no other options. After all, Yi Zhong was enjoying the utmost advantages at this moment! He was holding a Middle-grade Celestial Artifact on the Ancient Battlefield of Divinities, which gave him a huge advantage.
“Elder Xu, let’s admit defeat!” Bai Cailing shouted loudly as she looked at Xu Que at this time. She had decided to end this fight no matter whether Elder Xu’s Cultivation Stage had really reached Celestial King or not because this old man might be seriously wounded or even killed.
BOOM! Yi Zhong, however, didn’t want to give Xu Que an opportunity to admit defeat. While Bai Cailing was still in the middle of her sentence, Yi Zhong’s golden halberd had already slashed down toward Xu Que, flashing across the void. Yi Zhong’s golden halberd had turned into a dazzling sun. It was so bright and powerful, and its horrible momentum was much stronger than before.
“Old fart, what will you choose this time?” Yi Zhong asked as he smiled at Xu Que sarcastically. A strand of madness could be seen in his smile. “No matter what you choose, you will be a dead man soon…”
Before finishing his words, Yi Zhong was shocked by what he saw. Yi Zhong didn’t find any fear or shock or even hesitation in Xu Que’s face at this moment. He could only see an expression of heartache in Xu Que’s face. Because now Xu Que only felt sorry for the golden halberd. “Oh, no! It is really a pity to ruin such a good Medium-grade Celestial Artifact!” Xu Que murmured to himself. But he didn’t let this heartache stop his movements! The next moment, he raised his right hand in the air. A gust of horrible chilly wind started to blow throughout the entire area!
“Occult and Ghostly Ice Fog Hand!” Xu Que shouted loudly. His right arm was covered by a thick layer of ice. He reached out his arm to confront Yi Zhong’s golden halberd!
BANG! His fist collided with the long halberd in the air and created a ripple in the void. Many waves of air were flying rapidly in the sky. CRACK! Yi Zhong’s golden halberd, which had been encased with ice, started to break apart piece by piece!
CLANG! CLANG! The next moment, all the people who were watching this fight with bated breaths and open mouths were shocked! The golden halberd broke up into small parts and started to fall to the ground! The long halberd at the level of Middle-grade Celestial Artifact was ruined in this way! At this time, Xu Que glanced at Yi Zhong, who looked totally dumbfounded, and he said with a faint smile, “This is a Medium-grade Celestial Artifact, right? Is it very powerful?”
