“Ghost Child, come on, kill him!”
The Ghost Child did not refuse to do that. As a matter of fact, he had already felt Zhou Bao’s determination to kill this Earthly Immortal through his words—no matter how many trump cards he would expose or how much it would cost him.
A red gourd emerged from Zhou Bao’s body, and then a red thread shot out toward the Torrential Thunder Emperor.
“This is not good!” Noticing that, Chen Chong, who had been watching them fight from a distance, suddenly became serious. He remembered something related to Zhou Bao as he saw that red thread. “That thing is really in his hands!”
“Torrential Thunder Emperor, watch out!”
The Torrential Thunder Emperor also noticed that thread. Although he was an Earthly Immortal who had put his whole heart into practicing, he still knew something about the widely spread matter that an Earthly Immortal of the Eastern Thunder Sect had been killed recently. As soon as he eyed this thread, his expression immediately changed. He moved, trying to avoid being hit by it.
To his surprise, the lightning chains that extended from the Black Pearl broke through his shield and locked him firmly at this critical moment.
“Break!” He suddenly activated the power of his macro world with all his strength, trying to free himself from the chains. In this very moment, the red thread was nailed in between his eyebrows. All his actions came to a standstill.
A jet of red SwordQi rushed out of the red thread and pierced into the body of the Torrential Thunder Emperor.
“It’s not so easy to kill me!” the Torrential Thunder Emperor roared. The power of his macro world surged and expanded, and a deep-blue crystal emerged from his midbrows to block the Immortal-slaying Sword Qi that was given off by the red gourd. Meanwhile, feeling that his life was being greatly threatened, the Torrential Thunder Emperor temporarily abandoned his intention of destroying the Heaven Realm World. He withdrew the purple gourd that he had just thrown out and attacked Zhou Bao to the best of his ability.
This was what Zhou Bao wanted!
Since the Heaven Realm World was out of danger, Zhou Bao’s mission was accomplished. However, he knew that all this was not over. He had revealed all of his trump cards, so if he did not kill the Torrential Thunder Emperor, then the entire Void Universe would soon be aware that he possessed a Heavenly Fairy Weapon that was able to slay Earthly Immortals and a Supreme Fairy Weapon. If that happened, he would never be able to enjoy a stable life again. Thus, he had no other option aside from immediately killing the Torrential Thunder Emperor and the guy who was watching them fight from a distance.
Seeing that the Torrential Thunder Emperor had withstood the Immortal-slaying Sword Qi successfully, the Ghost Child curled his lip. “It’s indeed a lot more difficult to kill him than to kill someone who has recently become an Earthly Immortal. He actually could fight against my Immortal-slaying Sword Qi with the essence of his macro world!”
Zhou Bao said impatiently, “Shut up, kill him as soon as possible!”
“Alright!” The Ghost Child had no complaints about the matter this time. He was quite unhappy when he saw that the Torrential Thunder Emperor had withstood his Immortal-slaying Sword Qi. However, it did not matter. After all, he had nailed him with that red thread. If the Immortal-slaying Sword Qi did not work, he would give the Immortal-killing Sword Qi a try!
Having being refined by the Furnace of Immortality, the Immortal-killing Sword Qi was not inferior to the Immortal-slaying Sword Qi. A snow-white stripe shot out of the red thread at a high speed. At the same time, the Torrential Thunder Emperor operated his purple gourd and was going to launch the Purple Thunder Devastating Bomb to attack the Black Pearl.
However, he made a mistake. Although the Purple Thunder Devastating Bomb was quite powerful, it took a long time to charge it up. Before he was able to launch the bomb, the snow-white stripe had circled around his neck. With a clear sound, his head fell off his neck. The stripe then charged at his Second Primordial Spirit that was tied up by the rules of the void without stopping. While his Second Primordial Spirit watched, aghast, the stripe penetrated it and its life flowed away.
“Immortal-killing Sword Qi… that damn Immortal-killing Sword Qi! Why have you obtained it!”
In the distance, Chen Chong finally reacted to everything. He pointed at Zhou Bao and exclaimed in shock.
“You don’t need to know that. Go to hell!” While speaking, Zhou Bao turned the Black Pearl around and was going to strike him.
“You can’t kill me!”
“You can’t kill him!”
Hearing those two voices ring out at the same time, Zhou Bao stopped. If Chen Chong alone cried out, he would have just ignored him. However, the Ghost Child yelled as well, so he knew that there had to be something wrong.
He looked at the Ghost Child while he pointed at Chen Chong not far away, saying, “You know him?!”
“Of course. Otherwise, why would I stop you from killing him?” The Ghost Child glared at Zhou Bao and turned around. He said to Chen Chong, “Rotating Wheel King, it’s been a long time since we last met!”
“Hehe, I don’t want to see you!” Chen Chong glanced at the red gourd and his heart continued to flutter with fear. “You are King Wuyang, right? Can you put this damn thing away first? I feel uncomfortable looking at it!”
“Who are you then?”
“I’m Chen Chong, the Rotating Wheel King, subordinate to Emperor Youming!” Chen Chong bowed with a smile. “King Wuyang, you are young and mighty. I really admire you!”
“Ghost Child, why can’t I kill him?”
“Of course you can’t. Nominally, this guy is one of the 10 kings that are subordinate to Emperor Youming; but in fact, his master is someone else. If you kill him, you will offend his master. And if you do that, you’d better abandon your wishful thinking of living a stable life in your lifetime. Am I right, Rotating Wheel King?”
“Don’t speak so seriously. I’m just a pawn of my master!” The Rotating Wheel King laughed and added, “To my surprise, you have come back to life!”
“I knew at the very start that I’d be unable to hide this matter from you. Your master is still stirring up trouble, and that really surprised me!”
“I’m so flattered. But my master has never stirred up trouble, he’s just doing what he should do!”
“I guess your master must be very depressed knowing that Zhou Bao has killed the Torrential Thunder Emperor. After all, he has lost an important chess piece in the Void Universe!”
“That’s no big deal. Learning that you are assisting King Wuyang and that he has a Supreme Fairy Weapon… all this is worthwhile even if my master has lost another chess piece like the Torrential Thunder Emperor!”
“Are you sure that I can’t kill him now?!” Hearing Chen Chong’s words, Zhou Bao was anxious to kill him.
“Take it easy. His master won’t leak your secret to others!” The Ghost Child seemed to know what was going on in Zhou Bao’s mind and he added calmly, “His master is a man of great ambition and has made too many enemies. He is not in the void and has plotted against the Void Universe for quite a long time, but he has gained no benefit. Now that he knows your secret, how can he not take advantage of it?!”
“If I kill him right here, we’ll save ourselves from all these troubles!”
“It’s useless. His master already knows everything you’ve just done through him. If you kill him, not only will his master harm you, but your secret will also be leaked!”
“You mean that we will be coerced by them? Damn it, I’m not afraid of my secret being leaked out. I don’t believe there is someone who would dare to profit from me in the Void Universe!” Zhou Bao did not yield an inch and the tone of his voice grew colder. Now, he was powerful enough and his strength had far surpassed a lot of people. He did not want to be coerced by anyone else. And coupled with that, he had just killed an Earthly Immortal and, thus, was extremely confident. Of course he was not willing to be kept on a leash.
At this point, the Rotating Wheel King sensed Zhou Bao’s killing intent and his heart shuddered. He said, “King Wuyang, I have no intention of revealing your secret to anyone. I just want to make a deal with you!”
“Do you think I will make a deal with a guy like you who has an unknown origin and purpose?!” Zhou Bao sneered, “I won’t make any deal with you. I won’t kill you today just for the Ghost Child’s sake. But if anything related to me is spread to other places and I hear about it, I will definitely kill you, unless you never appear in this Void Universe again. Otherwise, even your master won’t be able to protect you!” Without further ado, Zhou Bao reached out his hand and grabbed the Torrential Thunder Emperor’s head and disappeared from this void.
“This—!” Zhou Bao’s reaction went against the expectations of Chen Chong. He had done everything so quickly that Chen Chong was not even able to react to it.
“No more this or that. Be careful when you say something about this guy!” the Ghost Child said to Chen Chong while glancing at him. He felt somewhat surprised by the way Zhou Bao had handled this matter, but fortunately, he had spared Chen Chong’s life and had done his master a favor.
In the Suspended Stone Spacetime of the Heaven Realm World—
This time, accidents happened so frequently in the Void Competition. First, Zhou Bao exerted all his might and frightened the practitioners from South China out of their wits. Later, an Earthly Immortal attacked him secretly and he vanished all of a sudden. All this happened in a very short time. Due to these great changes, people did not have the chance to think carefully. As the presider, Yan Yuntian felt very anxious when Zhou Bao disappeared. He did not know whether he should announce the end of the Void Competition or continue waiting for Zhou Bao, who had created a miracle, to reappear once again.
However, not everyone had high hopes that Zhou Bao would reappear. After all, every Earthly Immortal had an overwhelming power in this Void Universe. Except for the matter that happened the other day in the Eastern Thunder Sect of the Easternmost Land, no one had ever heard of someone who had gained advantages and was still alive after fighting an Earthly Immortal.
Therefore, in an instant, the talents and representatives from other macro worlds and influences burst into an uproar. They gathered together to discuss how they should handle this matter. However, before they could draw a conclusion, this spacetime was broken open once again and Zhou Bao reappeared in front of them, holding in his hand a head with its eyes wide open.
“Where does the Torrential Thunder Emperor come from? Come and claim it!” Zhou Bao said calmly and threw that head on the arena above the suspended stone.
A strange silence pervaded this place.
