Alchemy Emperor Of The Divine Dao Chapter 1316
Chapter 1316 The Unfortunate Chi Huangji
"I only said that Ill share a bit with you. However, I didnt say how much!" Small Tower said shamelessly.
"Y-youre even more shameless than me!" Ling Han was completely speechless at this moment. Small Tower was far too underhanded!
"Brat, youll only be well if Im well," Small Tower said. It even wore a philosophical look on its face as it spoke.
Ling Han was so angry that he wanted to ignore Small Tower. However, he was already at the peak stage of the consummate level of the Sun Moon Tier at this moment, so if he didnt break through, it would be useless no matter how much of the divine flames he was given. In fact, receiving too much would only overfill him and cause him to explode.
However, he was still furious that the f*cking Small Tower had screwed him over like this.
"Give! It! Back! To! Me!" Chi Huangji roared in fury. The person before him had clearly stolen his divine flames, yet he was actually wearing a pissed off expression! Was he trying to infuriate him to death? He howled in anger, and black divine flames burst from his eyes. These were essence divine flames, and he had refined a tiny amount of them into his body.
He had genuinely only refined a very tiny amount. Due to the limit of his cultivation level, he couldnt refine any more than he already had. After all, these were essence divine flames that even Saints were apprehensive of!
However, this tiny amount of essence divine flames had given him the ability to oppose the power of heavens might. Otherwise, if his battle prowess were decreased by two stars, he would fall from a supreme king tier to become an ordinary king tier.
"Youve forced me to do this!" Chi Huangjis hands became a blur as he started to form a series of complicated hand seals. His aura became even more powerful, and it was as if his battle prowess had elevated by one to two stars.
This was absolutely incredible. After reaching the level of supreme king tier, it should have been impossible for them to become any stronger.
However, Chi Huangji had to pay a significant price for this power. A lock of his hair immediately became white, and his appearance also seemed to age by numerous years. Wrinkles appeared on his forehead.
Ling Han instantly understood what had happened. Chi Huangji had indeed become more powerful, yet he had paid for this power with his lifespan. Moreover, he had paid a significant amount by the looks of it. Otherwise, it wouldnt have reflected on his appearance so clearly.
This made a lot of sense. If Chi Huangji were only a three or four-star genius, he would have obtained an extra two stars of battle prowess if he sacrificed several hundred or several thousand years of his lifespan. However, he had already reached the theoretical peak of the Mountain River Tier, so he would have needed to sacrifice an astronomical number of years of his lifespan to elevate his battle prowess by one to two stars.
This was similar to how Explosive Thunder Pills were useless to Ling Han now. After reaching the pinnacle level, trying to advance any further would be extremely, extremely difficult.
However, Chi Huangji had no choice but to sacrifice his lifespan for more power. The essence divine flames were of tremendous importance to him, and he definitely couldnt lose them just like that. Otherwise, the speed of his cultivation would drop at least tenfold, perhaps even hundredfold.
Even if he were a genius, he couldnt stand to lose so much time. If a Heavenly Body Tier elite were stuck at the same cultivation level for tens of millions of years, they would only end up dying at the Heavenly Body Tier. However, if they could raise the speed of their cultivation by hundredfold, it was very likely that they would be able to reach the Eternal River Tier or even Genesis Tier.
Cultivation was like a race against time. One had to advance to the next level before they reached the end of their lifespan. This was like sailing upstreamone would be swept back if they didnt advance.
Anyhow, Chi Huangjis power was definitely unparalleled in the Mountain River Tier at this moment. When he threw a punch, even space shuddered, with swirls of shock waves traveling through the air.
Peng, peng, peng!
It mattered little that Faceless and the others were also king tiers. They were ruthlessly swept off their feet by the overwhelming shock waves.
Just the shock waves alone were already this powerful, so how could Ling Han defend against this strike?
He was the target of this strike, and he would have to face its domineering might head-on.
Ling Han threw a punch, and his fist collided with Chi Huangjis.
The muscles on Ling Hans arms rippled like the waves of a disturbed lake. The ripples traveled from his fist all the way up to his shoulder.
Pa, pa, pa!
His skin instantly cracked open, blood exploding into the air. Then, his entire body was sent flying.
The difference between their power was far too great.
However, Ling Han somersaulted in the air and landed firmly on the ground. He then channeled the Indestructible Heavens Scroll, healing his right arm at a speed that was visible to the naked eye. These were merely flesh wounds, and his Godly bones were completely unscathed. Thus, healing these wounds couldnt be any easier.
Everyone spluttered in surprise. There was a difference of two stars between their power, meaning that Chi Huangji should have enjoyed a crushing advantage, yet Ling Han had only received some minor flesh wounds? Moreover, he had even healed these wounds in an instant? What kind of defense was this? What kind of recovery ability was this?
In reality, how could the Stone Emperor and North Emperora descendant and a disciple of a Saint, respectivelynot have secret techniques to elevate their battle prowess? However, like with Chi Huangji, these secret techniques required them to pay a heavy price. In fact, this price was so heavy that it was far more valuable than obtaining the first place in this Two Realm Prodigy Gathering.
Chi Huangji was only going so far because his essence divine flames had been stolen by Ling Han. Thus, he was willing to sacrifice millions of years of his lifespan to snatch these essence divine flames back.
However Chi Huangji was destined to suffer a huge loss.
"Freak!" the Rock Spirit muttered. Among the spirits of the five elements, the Wood Spirits were the most gifted in terms of recovery ability, while the Rock Spirits were the most gifted in terms of defensive ability. However, Ling Hans defense was no weaker than his, and his recovery ability was also no weaker than that of Wood Spirits. Thus, even he couldnt help but exclaim in surprise and admiration.
With how incredibly freakish he was, could anyone at the same cultivation level as him kill him?
The Stone Emperor turned to look at the North Emperor, who responded with a shake of his head. This was the first time he had felt so helpless against someone.
Chi Huangjis face was a picture of shock and disbelief. He stared at Ling Han dazedly, and he almost felt an urge to rub his eyes to see whether or not he was seeing things right. However, as a supreme king tier, he was confident that he wasnt hallucinating.
Ling Han was genuinely unfazed after eating his strike!
"I dont believe this!" Chi Huangji said through gritted teeth. He threw another punch.
Crimson flames curled through the air as his iron-like fist smashed toward Ling Han. The might of this fist had already soared to a level infinitesimally close to the peak stage of the low extreme of the Sun Moon Tier.
As expected, Ling Han was sent flying again. A difference of two stars was truly too great, especially since they were both supreme prodigies who were very evenly matched to begin with.
Like before, Ling Hans flesh cracked open again, sending blood spraying through the air. However, his Godly bones were still unscathed. There was a burst of golden light, and Ling Han recovered at an incredible rate. It wasnt long before he was fully healed again.
This was Ling Hans strongest quality. The Indestructible Heavens Scroll was a cultivation technique from the Celestial Realmthis was a cultivation technique that even Saints couldnt match.
"I dont believe this! I dont believe this! I dont believe this!!!" Chi Huangji descended into a frenzy, refusing to accept such an outcome. He launched a flurry of strikes, all of them imbued with his full power and belief of invincibility. He was going to obliterate Ling Han!
Unfortunately, however, his efforts were all in vain. In fact, even his power was starting to drop by the minute.
He had sacrificed a huge amount of his lifespan to elevate his 10-star battle prowess by another two stars, yet the millions of years of his lifespan had gone to waste just like that!
10 stars was a pinnacle to begin with, and this wasnt something that could be transcended!
If one wanted to defy heaven, they would have to pay an exorbitant price.
"Im truly sorry. It was your greatest misfortune to come across me," Ling Han said. He started to counterattack. With his powerful physique to support him, he didnt need to worry about defending at all.
Being as powerful as Chi Huangji was, he could naturally still look down on everyone else present. Even if the seven prodigies teamed up, they would still be no match for him. However, he was unable to breach Ling Hans defenses no matter what he did. His attackwhich could easily crush any other king tierwas completely useless against Ling Han. All it could do was give him some minor flesh wounds.
Was this truly the final battle of the Two Realm Prodigy Gathering? Why did it look like a one-sided pummeling?
Moreover, it wasnt the stronger Chi Huangji that was pummeling Ling Han, but instead Ling Han who was pummeling the stronger Chi Huangji!
Faceless and the others all wore strange expressions.
 Considering its a tower and has no face, this line is prolly supposed to refer to the tone of voice instead.
