Immortal And Martial Dual Cultivation Chapter 1389Chapter 1389 (Raw 1380): Unprecedented Path; Unpredictable
The ten thousand steps shattered, turning into dense blood clouds and spreading in the sky.
No one expected such a scene. Since ancient times, no one had ever done such a thing, taking the initiative to give up on the very last step, when one was just one step away from the Emperor’s Door.
Under the blood clouds, everyone in the chaotic battle showed shocked and startled expressions, all of them stunned silly.
However, no one noticed that the instant the Emperor’s Road crumbled, the color of the bloody Emperor’s Door faded as if blood had washed off. The Emperor’s Door turned purple and transformed into a beam of light that entered Xiao Chen’s body.
All everyone saw was the bloody road crumbling and the blood coming off, dyeing the sky. However, no one noticed that the instant the blood was gone, the Emperor’s Door revealed its true form and entered Xiao Chen’s body.
Xiao Chen, who was currently in a rage, felt something appear in his Heart of an Emperor.
However, at this moment, he could not be bothered with it, nor did he have the time to.
Holding the Lunar Shadow Saber, he descended from the sky.
Di Wuque, who was about to attack Mo Chen, turned his head back and happened to see the Emperor’s Road crumble and turn into a sea of blood. The scene of the blood flowing back into the sky stunned him.
Chants for purifying resounded in the sky. The dense blood clouds gave off cries of pain and misery.
The sea of blood surged, and thousands upon thousands of malicious spirits and evil ghosts appeared in it, looking very horrifying. These were sins. However, how many sins did one have to commit to materialize such a vast and boundless sea of blood like this?
Ying Zongtian and the others showed great changes in their expressions when they saw this scene.
At this moment, everyone felt that there was something wrong with this bloody Emperor’s Road. The color of blood was an ominous sign in the first place. It appearing on one’s Emperor’s Road was a very bad sign. It was hard to imagine what Xiao Chen would be like had he pushed open such an Emperor’s Door and absorbed so much sin.
The shattering of this Emperor’s Road resulted in these sins being unable to hide any longer. Now, they completely revealed themselves. The evil aura filling the sky startled even the Heaven Abandoning Deity Sovereign.
“No wonder his Emperor’s Road is a bloody Emperor’s Road. It turns out that there is so much sin.”
“That’s not right. He is a quasi-Emperor. No matter what, there is no way he could accumulate so much sin. Even if he were a Prime, it would be very difficult to accumulate this much sin. What’s going on?”
“The Azure Emperor!”
“It can only be because of the Azure Emperor. He is the Azure Emperor’s descendant. He must have inherited the Azure Emperor’s sins as well.”
“That’s right. It can only be the Azure Emperor. That’s the only way he could have accumulated so much sin. This is too frightening. Fortunately, he did not push open the Emperor’s Door. If he had, he would have become someone even more terrifying than the Azure Emperor.”
When the many Primes and Martial Emperors saw the sins covering the sky, they felt a chill run down their backs, and their scalps went numb.
Ignoring how these Martial Emperors and Primes felt, after the initial shock, Di Wuque started laughing.
He laughed very carefreely, his eyes filled with mockery. “Xiao Chen, you are truly reckless. Great! Great! Great! Many thanks to you for giving me the chance to personally take my revenge.
“Myriad Heaven Divine Fist, Deities Descending!”
Di Wuque threw a punch, executing the most tyrannical move of the Myriad Heaven Divine Fist, Deities Descending. Instantly, his aura soared, and his combat prowess increased tenfold.
His hair flew about, every strand releasing golden light.
“Myriad Heaven Divine Fist, Deities Descending!”
Xiao Chen, who was still descending and have yet to reach the ground, executed Deities Descending as well, not showing any change in expression or any fear.
Xiao Chen’s Vital Qi had reached one hundred Dragon Force already. Furthermore, his physical body had undergone nine improvements on the Emperor’s Road, and he had also experienced a nirvanic rebirth through the Udumbara Flower.
Now, Xiao Chen’s Vital Qi reached five hundred Dragon Force. With tenfold combat prowess, that was five thousand Dragon Force.
Instantly, soaring dragons roared ferociously behind Xiao Chen, causing the sky to change color.
Although this was far from comparable to the Heaven Punishing Corpse God’s ten thousand dragons soaring with a casual strike, it was already comparable to the peak strike of a Greater Heavenly Martial Emperor.
The two fists collided. Di Wuque was a powerful genius who was a Fourth Heaven Martial Emperor. At first, he held a great advantage. It looked like he would send Xiao Chen flying.
However, at the crucial moment, the Emperor’s Door in Xiao Chen’s body suddenly cracked open and released surging energy.
Di Wuque went flying back like a sandbag, not even having time to grunt in pain.
Xiao Chen could not be bothered with the flying Di Wuque. He quickly landed beside Mo Chen and checked her injuries. Only then did he relax his sullen expression somewhat and release his bated breath.
Yue Bingyun, Xiao Bai, Shui Lingling and the others were all lying on the ground in different directions, unable to move and severely injured. They were weakened and in incredibly sorry states.
When Xiao Chen looked up at the even more distant places, he saw the entire Meteor Trail City covered in corpses of cultivators.
The pits in the area were even filled with blood, forming many lakes of blood with countless corpses floating in them.
Xiao Chen looked up at the inverse sea of blood in the sky. With the purifying of the chanting, the countless sins shrieked painfully.
For a moment, he felt grateful and suddenly very tired.
In Xiao Chen’s life, he had no regrets. He held a clear conscience towards heaven, the world, and himself. However, if given another chance, he would absolutely not step onto his Emperor’s Road. If it was only for the sake of attaining his dream but resulted in the sacrifice of so many people, what was the point of being a Martial Emperor?
“Little Three, take them away.”
After a long time, Xiao Chen spoke with fatigue in his voice. Little Three could sense his depression.
Without saying anything else, Little Three came out of the Three Life Mirror. Her figure flickered as she executed her Minor Universe Movement. With a few flashes, she brought Mo Chen, Yue Bingyun, Xiao Bai, and the others out of Meteor Trail City.
Xiao Chen slowly stood up and looked forward. Ten kilometers away, in a dense cloud of dust, Di Wuque crawled back to his feet.
Once Di Wuque regained his feet, his aura burst out ferociously, scattering all the dust.
“It’s impossible. I am already a Fourth Heaven Martial Emperor. Among Greater Heavenly Martial Emperors, I am unrivaled. How am I still weaker than you?!”
Di Wuque went somewhat crazy. He threw three punches, and divine chains appeared in the air, rushing towards Xiao Chen.
This was the Chains of Deities of the Myriad Heaven Divine Fist, which was used to lock down a target. However, in Di Wuque’s hands, the sealing technique of this Fist Technique was replete with killing Qi.
“Flawless Saber Technique, Dragon Subduing Stance!”
Xiao Chen soared into the air and used his energy to materialize dragons. Instantly, five hundred huge dragons flew out, looking berserk and unparalleled.
At the same time, his surging Mental Energy entered the dragons, bringing them to life instantly, completing them.
Immediately, the five hundred True Dragons under Xiao Chen’s feet bared fangs and claws. Boundless Dragon Qi poured into his body.
Using the aura of the five hundred True Dragons, Xiao Chen sent out three saber strikes. The divine chains flying towards him broke and faded out of existence.
Di Wuque’s strength soared, reaching Fourth Heaven Martial Emperor. However, Xiao Chen had undergone a nirvanic rebirth and walked more than nine thousand steps of his Emperor’s Road. Xiao Chen was equally incredible.
“Myriad Heaven Divine Fist, Eternal Myth!”
Di Wuque threw another punch, and the huge image of an ancient divine being materialized behind him. This huge image also punched at Xiao Chen.
This divine being was more than three kilometers tall. It exuded Divine Might, appearing like it truly existed.
It did not fluster Xiao Chen. He likewise executed Eternal Myth. However, the image that appeared behind him was that of himself.
Both were Eternal Myths, but they took different paths. In a moment, they clashed head-on with each other.
The moment they collided, the divine being behind Di Wuque shattered. Di Wuque vomited blood and was knocked back; he was in disbelief.
“It looks like you still don’t understand. How can there be anything like a divine being in this world? Only one’s self is the truest existence.”
Xiao Chen withdrew his fist. As he held the Lunar Shadow Saber, he walked forward, step by step.
He had not advanced to Martial Emperor yet. However, his aura firmly suppressed Di Wuque.
“Bang! Bang! Bang!”
The two exchanged another three moves. Di Wuque lost in every exchange. With every punch, he was severely injured. After the three moves, Xiao Chen kicked him into the air, injuring him so badly that he could no longer get up.
“What’s going on? Xiao Chen clearly has not advanced to Martial Emperor yet. Why is he still stronger than Wuque?!”
The Heaven Abandoning Deity Sovereign was somewhat flustered. He had thought that when Xiao Chen went to seek trouble for Di Wuque, Xiao Chen was just courting trouble for himself and would suffer a ruthless lesson.
However, the reality was that Xiao Chen completely overwhelmed Di Wuque, treating Di Wuque like a sandbag.
“Pu ci!” Xiao Chen, who was walking forward, suddenly vomited a mouthful of blood. His complexion turned ashen. Fire burned in his body from the inside out. A strong wind howled, fanning this fire into even greater ferocity.
Xiao Chen’s Emperor’s Road had broken. The rebound from his Great Tribulation of wind and fire arrived. This was a process that every cultivator who failed the tribulation had to experience.
If one managed to survive, one would be a half-step Martial Emperor. If not, one would be burned alive.
However, Xiao Chen’s situation was rather special. He had taken a path that no one had taken before.
