God Emperor Chapter 755
“How dare you?”
Faced with the Vampire’s Third Royal Prince’s provocation, the Saint Lady clasped her fan shut and stood up.
In an instant, powerful might burst from her body. “Only the Empress can be referred to as royalty. Calling yourself royal prince is the greatest blasphemy.”
Clearly, the Saint Lady couldn’t stand this Vampire royal prince. Now that they were at the Heir Banquet, she had to find an excuse to get rid of him.
She couldn’t let a Vampire become one of the nine Kunlun Heirs.
The Black Market and Demonic Sect committed many sins, but they still had rules and morals. The imperial court could still tolerate them.
Take the Black Market for example. They united most of the evil forces in the world and created a rule. They basically restricted the evil Monks in the world. Without them, Kunlun’s Field would lose a powerful evil force. However, the thousands of evil Monks would also become uncontrolled and make Kunlun’s Field even more chaotic.
There was also the Demonic Sect. The members called themselves a divine sect. They believed firmly that they were doing just and holy things ordered by the gods.
They were aggressive and did things to the extreme, but they were still a group constrained by their religion. Their territories were quite wealthy and populous. Sometimes bloodshed occurred, but there was still a chance to guide them onto the right path.
It wasn’t that the Black Market and Demonic Sect weren’t evil. It was just that their existences were significant. If they were destroyed, things could get worse.
Furthermore, the Black Market and Demonic Sect restricted the Martial Market Bank and other saintly sects. To the imperial court, it was a type of balance.
If the Black Market and Demonic Sect were completely destroyed, all the saintly sects and clans may start to rebel against the imperial court. At that time, war would start and they’d return to the situation of 800 years ago. Heroes would slay each other and the world would be in chaos.
This was why Empress Chi Yao ordered that all talents in the world could compete for the Heir’s position, including the Black Market and Demonic Sect.
The Vampire race and Death Zen Sects were different though. Instead of evil or demonic Tao, they were the Tao of Death. If they were allowed to run free in Kunlun’s Field, they would make the human race go extinct. No force could allow this.
The Saint Lady extended a finger without hesitation, pointing below Scroll Mountain. Horrible spiritual power rushed out, forming a huge “destroy” in the sky. She was going to kill the Third Royal Prince of the Vampires and Jialuo Gu.
Right now, she seemed to have turned into someone else. She killed decisively, not giving the enemy any chances.
“What, the famous Saint Lady has such low tolerance?” an ancient voice sounded, coming down from the heavens. It was louder than thunder, as if the sky had said this.
A waterfall of blood-red mist poured down from the sky. It transformed into a bloody hand and shattered the “destroy” character.
The two powers crashed against each other, forming destructive shockwaves that surged in all directions. If the shockwaves were allowed to flood out uncontrolled, the entire Shentai City would be pulverized. So many Monks would die meaninglessly.
Master Ning of the Yin and Yang Sect furrowed his brow. He moved his right arm, shaking out his sleeve. Immediately afterward, 36 yellow chess pieces flew out from his sleeve. They stuck into Scroll Mountain, forming a huge circle.
Beams of matrix runes rushed out of each piece. They connected and formed a huge matrix. The powerful shockwave was pushed down and it soon dissipated.
On Scroll Mountain, Saint Lady took a step back. Blood dribbled from the corner of her lip as she looked up into the sky, slightly shocked.
At the last moment, Saint Lady had used the power of the Confucian Sect’s book and Scroll Mountain to fight against that power. And yet, she was still gravely injured.
The other’s power was practically a boundless and endless sea. It frightened her.
“He’s actually beaten Saint Lady? Who can he be?”
Zhang Ruochen looked up and saw that the entire sky had turned blood-red. The redness stretched into the horizon. The ground seemed to be covered in the color, too. The air filled with the disgusting stench of blood.
An elder stood on a cloud in the sky. He had a pair of blood-colored flesh wings and a white robe. His entire body was covered in warts. He looked more like a beast than a person.
He was the one who’d attacked and injured Saint Lady.
The white-robed elder’s aura practically filled the earth and sky. Monks of the Fish-Dragon Realm would be like ants before a demonic god when standing before him.
His voice was piercing. “The Empress’ heart can embrace the entire world and all races in Kunlun’s Field. Even the evil and demonic Taos can compete for the Heir’s position. Compared to the Empress, the Saint Lady’s heart is too narrow and cannot even tolerate my Vampire race. I am so disappointed.”
The elder’s appearance made everyone feel danger.
“Indeed, the Vampires’ old creature is protecting that Third Royal Prince.”
“That old creature’s cultivation is so powerful. I can’t see through it.”
In Shentai City, elders of all the forces released their might at once. Strands of Holy Qi flowed through the air, wrapping around all the Monks present.
Looking down from the sky, one could see the powers of all the elders grouping together. A huge holy picture seemed to appear on the ground. Each strand of Holy Qi was a line in the picture.
The white-robed elder was still calm. Even facing all the Saints, he only smiled faintly.
“What? You want to fight? Unfortunately, you’re all too young. You’re not qualified to fight with me, unless old Taiyi of the Yin and Yang Sect is still alive. He can fight with me.”
“Judging from your tone, you seem to know Patriarch Taiyi?” the leader of the Yin and Yang Sect asked.
The elder smiled. “We met once, 800 years ago.”
The hearts of countless Monks present shook violently. It was hard to imagine that the white-robed elderly Vampire was actually an old creature who’d lived for so long.
The expression of the Yin and Yang Sect’s leader changed slightly. “Who are you?” he asked.
“Eight hundred years ago, there were ten Blood Generals below the Blood Empress,” the elder said. “I was a small soldier under General Qingtian. I was insignificant, so there’s no need to say my name.”
Eight hundred years ago, Kunlun’s Field had three empresses in addition to the nine emperors. The Blood Empress was the strongest of the three.
The battle back then was when Emperor Ming had forced the Blood Empress into the endless abyss. Then he’d led all the heroes in the world to defeat the Vampires and seal them in Manji Island.
The elder continued, “This time, I bring the Third Royal Prince and Jialuo Gu of the Death Zen Sect to the Yin and Yang Sect. I am merely responding to the Empress’ call to participate in the Heir Banquet and compete for the Heir’s spot. I don’t wish to cause any trouble. If the Saint Lady can’t tolerate the title ‘royal prince,’ we can lower ourselves and use ‘prince.’
“If we still cannot attend the banquet, then I will have to suspect whether the Empress’ decree holds any meaning to the Saint Lady. Is the Empress the ruler of the world, or is it the Saint Lady?”
Indeed, Empress Chi Yao’s decree hadn’t specified that the Vampires and Monks of the Death Zen Sect couldn’t attend. The white-robed elder’s words were horribly critical and turned the Saint Lady into the target.
First, he said she was close-minded. Then he said she didn’t respect the Empress. At the same time, he voluntarily changed “royal prince” to “prince.” This showed that the Vampires respected the Empress.
His every word was forcing the Saint Lady to let the Vampire race’s Third Royal Prince and Jialuo Gu attend the Heir Banquet.
The Third Royal Prince sneered. “I, the prince, greatly respect the Empress. If I’d disrespected her earlier, please forgive me, oh Saint Lady.”
Jialuo Gu put his hands together in prayer position and intoned, “Amitabha! If the imperial court cannot treat the Death Zen Sect fairly, our believers may become very angry. Our respect for the Empress may fall apart, too. I cannot imagine what the consequences would be like.”
Until now, the Vampires and Death Zen Sect had still been in foreign lands and hadn’t done anything horrible in the mainland of Kunlun’s Field for the past centuries.
Once they found an excuse, they could logically come to Kunlun’s Field as missionaries and brainwash people. They could make people think they were the victims.
If the Saint Lady kept refusing them, the Vampires and Death Zen Sect would most likely blame all of their future sinful acts on Saint Lady. They would insist that they’d been forced to fight against the Saint Lady’s repression and animosity.
No one could bear this responsibility.
“So what if these two attend? This is where all the heroes in the world are gathered. I doubt they can get the Heir’s Seat.”
“Just let them attend the banquet. It would show how benevolent the Empress is. I’ll go and defeat them.”
Just then, some of the young talents in the Talent and Conquer Seats actually started rallying for the Third Royal Prince of the Vampires and Jialuo Gu to attend the Heir Banquet.
One must admit that their words were influential. The young and ignorant Monks below Scroll Mountain all started yelling.
“Let them attend. Senior Sister Apprentice Beigong of the Central Region Saint Academy can fight one against two. She can make that stupid vampire prince and donkey from the Death Zen Sect crawl on the ground!”
“They’re just two evil people. The saintly disciples of my religion can crush them with just one hand.”
“Saint Lady, let them attend. If we don’t teach them a lesson, they’ll grow bolder.”
The young Monks didn’t understand the true abilities of the Vampires and Death Zen Sect. Due to the provocation, they grew hot-blooded and actually supported them.
They didn’t know that the Third Royal Prince and Jialuo Gu were obviously prepared if they came in such a high-key way. They were obviously confident in their ability to win.
