Immortal And Martial Dual Cultivation Chapter 1370Chapter 1370 (Raw 1360): Confrontation Begins
Xiao Chen, whom the Heaven Abandoning Deity Sovereign claimed he could easily squish like an ant, was currently riding on a huge bird Formation Spirit, heading towards Meteor Trail City.
“Big Brother Xiao Chen, promise us to hold back a little. You can’t unleash everything. Do not undergo your tribulation here,” Mo Chen pleaded as she tugged on the corner of Xiao Chen’s sleeve from behind.
Yue Bingyun already told Mo Chen about Xiao Chen’s physical condition. These words were something that both of them felt.
Right now, the Supreme Sky Province was already the center of the storm in the Kunlun Realm. Taking the tribulation here would be extremely risky and quite visible.
“Young Master Xiao, how about you pass the convening token to Younger Sister Mo Chen and leave alone now?” Yue Bingyun suggested.
Not knowing how to answer this, Xiao Chen temporized, “Let’s go over and take a look first before making a decision.”
He had originally made up his mind to leave the next day. However, such a situation happened today. How could he just leave?
Just at this moment, a deafening explosion roared out in an extremely distant land. Along with it came a horrifying spatial fluctuation appearing before the three’s vision.
The space far away looked like waves of water rising and falling endlessly and surging over from far to near.
Space shook and spread extremely fast. The undulations were impossible to resist as they quickly swept through the three.
Even the flame shooting straight up into the sky above Meteor Trail City showed intense fluctuations, looking like it would crumble.
The three felt intense pain, and blood trickled out of the corners of their lips. Their faces turned slightly pale. Fortunately, these spatial tremors lasted for only an instant. Furthermore, these were just some aftershocks. The three only suffered some internal injuries, which would not pose a significant problem.
“What’s going on? The epicenter of these spatial tremors does not seem to be Meteor Trail City.”
Clearly, it was not from Meteor Trail City. If it were that close, one would be severely injured—if not dead—when one got swept up in these spatial tremors.
Xiao Chen stopped and opened the Heavenly Eye on his forehead. Instantly, his vision improved infinitely.
Fifty thousand kilometers, five hundred thousand kilometers, all the way until five million kilometers. Xiao Chen could clearly see all the cities, pavilions, mountains, rivers, trees, and bugs that were in his line of sight.
One of which was Meteor Trail City, which was fifty thousand kilometers away. The city walls were already rubble, and most of the buildings were in ruins. A huge golden Deity Race warship circled the city in the air. Di Wuque stood on the bow, looking very cocky and appearing like he was passing judgment on everything, along with the other Deity Dao Union members.
Occasionally, a beam of light descended from above the huge warship. Each beam of light contained some Emperor’s Might, but the Emperor’s Might was impure, tainted with plenty of the power of faith, which was easily distinguishable.
However, these beams of light came in large numbers. As these lights flickered, they numbered several thousand. With all the Emperor’s Might added together, this barrage looked exceptionally frightening.
A thousand Respected Deities surrounded that flame surging into the sky, continuously sending out attacks.
It looked like the remaining Greater Heavenly Martial Emperors and the other cultivators were all hiding in that soaring flame, making their final stand.
Seeing this, Xiao Chen already knew why Meteor Trail City fell. One-third of the Deity Race’s Respected Deities had come.
However, that was not what concerned Xiao Chen. His vision extended even further, reaching into the distance, where he saw a startling battle in the sky outside Supreme Sky City.
The Sovereign Martial Emperors and Greater Heavenly Martial Emperors of both the Deity Dao Union and the Supreme Sky Sect, as well as the Supreme Sky Prime, were in a melee.
Xiao Chen’s heart sank. The Deity Dao Union already anticipated this. The moment Ying Zongtian’s group left the city, it was blocked.
The Deity Dao Union took advantage of the time when no one was maintaining the formations outside the city; their Greater Heavenly Martial Emperors directly tore space and blocked them.
Xiao Chen closed his Heavenly Eye and said, “That fluctuation came from Supreme Sky City. The Sect Master’s group is being blocked by the Deity Dao Union’s Greater Heavenly Martial Emperors. They probably will not be able to come.”
At these words, Mo Chen’s expression changed slightly. “Should we activate the convening token?”
It seemed like the huge decisive battle was brought forward.
Xiao Chen shook his head. “There’s no need. None of the Deity Dao Union’s Primes showed up. They might just be waiting for me to activate the convening token. We should rush over. As long as the Vice Sect Master and the others manage to retreat safely, they will be able to hold the sixth layer of formations.”
While the situation looked extremely dangerous, the crucial point was the remaining Martial Emperors in Meteor Trail City who were surrounded by the Deity Dao Union.
After a while, Meteor Trail City appeared before the three’s eyes. Before they entered the city, three beams of lights headed to where Xiao Chen was, shooting over like meteors.
“Be careful,” Xiao Chen murmured. Then, he stopped and closed his eyes, quietly waiting for three of the so-called Respected Deities of the Deity Race to arrive.
He and his companions could already feel the heat from the flame surging into the sky from Meteor Trail City. The sorry state of Meteor Trail City was a startling sight. The huge Deity Race warship giving off a surging Emperor’s Might was also shocking.
Mo Chen and Yue Bingyun were somewhat nervous, their palms sweating slightly. Meteor Trail City’s situation was even worse than the two imagined.
“Azure Dragon King Xiao Chen, our Divine Son invites you to his warship to reminisce about the past,” the three Deity Race’s Respected Deities said at the same time, radiating piercing golden light as they approached.
Xiao Chen opened his eyes, appearing very calm. However, the instant he opened his eyes, the light from the three Respected Deities suddenly dimmed.
The three Respected Deities showed expressions of extreme horror, turning incredibly flustered.
“Indeed, those who rely on the power of faith to advance to Martial Emperor can only be termed false Martial Emperors. You can only fool some ordinary people, and yet you dare to call yourselves Respected Deities!”
Xiao Chen ignored what the three Respected Deities said. After his cold words, he thrust both his palms forward, executing the Thousand Year Flame and the Thousand Year Death instantly.
Two moons competed with each other, hot-bloodedness and grief intertwining. At this moment, Xiao Chen’s emotions were unleashed without a care.
These were Xiao Chen’s strongest Palm Techniques. Combined with his pure Primordial Energy, the brilliant Emperor’s Might pressed on the three false Martial Emperors beyond bearing.
The three false Martial Emperors could only brace themselves and resist with all they had.
“Boom!” The explosions struck the three Deity Race false Martial Emperors and inflicted severe injuries on them. Blood flowed continuously from their lips as they quickly fled in fear.
“Since you are already here, there is no need for you to leave!”
Xiao Chen’s figure flickered, moving like a fish in water with thousands of variations. His figure flashed three times. With each flash, he sent out a palm saber chop. By the time he returned to the huge bird Formation Spirit, the three fleeing false Martial Emperors had died without a corpse remaining. Only a fine beam of divine light shot towards the sky.
Rumor said that for these Respected Deities of the Deity Race, as long as the main Deity Statue still existed, they could come back to life.
One had to destroy that final beam of divine light in order to eliminate these Respected Deities entirely. Xiao Chen did not care whether the rumor was true or not. He could not be bothered to make any further moves now when he had much more important things to do.
Mo Chen found this outcome strange. She asked, “These Deity Race cultivators clearly have Emperor’s Might, but why are they so weak?”
Xiao Chen explained, “By relying on the power of faith to advance to Martial Emperor and not undergoing the Great Tribulation of wind and fire, one naturally cannot compare to a true Martial Emperor. However, if there were many of them, they would be troublesome. If there were one hundred, I would not be a match for them, either.”
“Xiao Chen, the reinforcements that rushed over from the other nodes seem to be under attack as well.”
“I know. Right now, the most important thing is to gather them together and see if we can break through the lockdown of the Deity Race, opening up an escape route for the people inside.”
On the huge Deity Race warship:
“Divine Son, that Azure Dragon King failed to appreciate your kindness. He even killed the three Respected Deities sent to pass on the message,” someone reported quickly.
“This Azure Dragon King is really overboard. The Divine Son gives him face, but he did not reciprocate.”
“How bold of him! He does not even check his own circumstances first.”
The Deity Dao Union Martial Emperors of the various races all crowded around Di Wuque, trying to outdo each other in flattering him.
Di Wuque snorted coldly and said, “How stubborn! I invited you, but you did not come. Later, I will make you kneel down before me!”
