Emperor Armies

Chapter 1217: One Massacring One Million

With that, Li Qiye glared at the Teeming Tribemaster and smirked: “Only an inept bunch boasting about how vicious you are every day, how domineering and aggressive but ultimately, still a bunch of turtles hiding in their shell.”

Such contempt made the spectators slack-jawed. No one has ever thought that they would hear this level of blatant disdain towards the Teeming Fish before.

However, some secretly applauded him especially those who have been bullied by this tribe before. They felt especially happy since his words resonated with their own thoughts.

As a matter of fact, many knew that the Teeming Fish knew to pick their opponent very well. They weren’t ferocious to just anyone. For example, great hegemons like the Golden Isle, Void Imperfection Three Schools, and the Gu Chun’s Four Branches weren’t provoked by the Teeming Fish. Otherwise, they would have been slaughtered by the Immortal Emperors, treefathers, and sea demons countless times.

As for the other sects, they weren’t strong enough to kill all of the fish so more often than not, they would suffer losses to these fish without voicing their displeasures.

“He’s right. Hmph! Rumor has it that the grand completion Immortal Physique users of the Gu Chun’s Four Branches loved to eat dragon tendons but no one has heard of the Teeming Fish attacking the four branches for revenge before.” Someone couldn’t help but stated out of dissatisfaction towards the Teeming Tribe.

His senior was frightened and immediately covered his mouth. He slapped him and stated: “Are you tired of living? Even if you are, don’t drag the sect into this.”

Li Qiye’s words left the tribemaster’s old face darkened. He felt like his chest would explode from this anger as he trembled.

The million of fish in the sea had fire in their eyes while glaring at Li Qiye. If glares could kill, Li Qiye would have died countless times already.

“Tribemaster, let us tear this little animal to pieces so our brothers can eat his flesh, drink his blood, and chew his bones!” One Teeming Fish angrily shouted.

“Yes! Let us eat his flesh, drink his blood, and chew his bones!” The other fish immediately echoed the sentiment. Their furious roar soared to the sky and quaked the sea.

Many cultivators were aghast after feeling the wrath of the fish and turned pale. Today was the day when they would witness the ferocity of the Teeming Tribe.

“Devour me?” Li Qiye couldn’t help but smile before replying leisurely: “With a bunch of trash like you? Not to mention this one million army, even if the billions of Teeming Fish in the Heaven Spirit World were here, I still wouldn’t give a damn.”

This direct provocation left people exchanging glance at each other. There were more than ten high elders of the tribe and the tribemaster present. At least ten Virtuous Paragons were here, not to mention the vast soldiers.

“Little beast, you will experience a fate worse than death today! We shall stomp on your bones! My children! Feast on him!” The Tribemaster shouted.

“Kill!” The furious army crazily cried out before rushing for the Peacock Land like a storm. This waves of fish slammed straight towards the island as if wanting to break it apart.

Li Qiye smiled and with a buzzing sound, a law emerged from his heavenly cauldron.

“Rumble!” In a split second, bubbles sprayed out of the sea. These bubbles looked just like little palms that began to grab the Teeming Fish. There was no exception despite their great number. Even the group of the tribemaster couldn’t get out either. All were caught by these palms made out of water.

“Activate!” The shocked fish took action and tried to slash through these palm-shaped bubbles. However, this water have been refined by Li Qiye to be one with the ocean. How could these Teeming Fish cut through it?

“Too late.” Li Qiye smiled gently. With a boom, this area suddenly ignited into little cauldrons. Then, the fiery cauldrons turned into huge palms that descended from the sky to grab the head of these fish.

“Ah!” Miserable scream echoed across this land. They resonated together creating a hellish scene. While listening to the ups and downs of this grim melody, anyone would feel that they were trapped in hell as well.

“Pluff! Pluff! Pluff!” The hands made out of water and water began to pull. These fish’s head and body separated. Even the spine was being pulled out. This was an extremely scary spectacle.

“No!” The tribemaster screamed. His body was being abnormally elongated. He tried to escape from the hands but he still failed despite being a Virtuous Paragon.

Eventually, he let out one last shriek and couldn’t escape the fate of decapitation like the rest.

“It would be a shame to waste all of these lives.” Li Qiye smirked.

“Boom!” The cauldron flame changed again. These bubbles turned into stoves and instantly refined the million of bodies into ashes. Their vitality was being taken away and sucked into the Myriad Heavenly Cauldron.

At this time, the flame that came from the sky turned into crimson chains and hang the fish heads in the sky.

This scene was too spectacular and terrifying. The fish heads still connected to the spine were suspended in the air.

“Blegh!” One person couldn’t bear this horrible scene and began to vomit. Many cultivators ran away from fear.

Cultivators were accustomed to death but slaughtering one million in one breath was truly rare. Not to mention, these fish were still hanging in the sky. This was a scene that no one has ever seen before.

“It was a trap!” The paled and dazed crowd finally realized that a terrible trap has been planted in this area way earlier.

They also understood why Li Qiye warned everyone to stay out of the circle drawn by him. So it turned out that he was reminding people, lest they be caught up in this as well.

Prior to this, they thought he had an ulterior motive but it turned out that he did it with good intention. Cold chill emanated from within as they began to sweat. They only left the circle to make way for the Teeming Fish. If it wasn’t for that, their end could have been the same as these fish ahead.

“This must be a grand formation harmonizing with the heavens and earth. Its power must be wondrous and must have taken more than just one day to set up.” A grand character from the last generation understood the power of this trap after seeing the Teeming Tribemaster unable to escape.

Li Qiye sweep through the crowd with his eyes and slowly uttered: “Go tell the Teeming Fish, I will be waiting here at the Peacock Land. If they want revenge, bring it on, or, they can be cowards with tail tucked between their legs and never show their face in Heaven Spirit again.”

A lot of people’s heart skipped a beat after hearing this declaration of war. Li Qiye has set up a grand formation here to wait for more Teeming Fish.

“It is time for the human race to leave.” Finally, he looked at the few human cultivators and spoke coldly.

These humans shuddered and some of them left immediately. However, a few chose to stay in order to see the outcome of this storm.

Li Qiye’s move spread across the entire Jade Sea right away. The listeners batted their brows after hearing about his massacre.

“This person is ruthless with great schemes. Who expected him to kill one million Teeming Fish in this manner?” A sect master murmured with fear in his mind.

“War is coming, the Teeming Fish will definitely not let this go.” A big shot from the Treant Race commented as well.

“Not just them, the Extreme Yang School and the Immaculate Expanse won’t let this go either or they’ll lose all face in Heaven Spirit.” One ancestor gently sighed.

In a short time, the Jade Sea became quiet. Many people were looking forward to the events at Peacock Land. However, they were not concerned about the Peacock Tree this time for their eyes were on Li Qiye.

They all understood that his opponents had two choices; they could either fight a direct battle or to avoid this trap and find opportunities to kill him later.

However, avoiding this battle would be a detrimental blow to their prestige. The reputation established by their forefathers would shattered overnight. If they were afraid of a human boy, how could they guard their own territory in the future?

By enduring the shame of having million of children massacred, the Teeming Fish would no longer be scary to anyone later on!

Chapter 1218: Declaration Of War From A Million Kingdoms

After a few days, the Jade Sea was still silent and same for the Teeming Fish. There was no movement from them.

However, experienced big shots could smell that something was different in the air. One murmured: “The calm before the raging storm, who knows who will be the final winner?”

Everyone understood that Li Qiye has planted a trap for the Teeming Fish Tribe to come. At this moment, the question was whether these fish would jump into this pit or not.

Several more days passed and the Teeming Tribe was still quiet. At this time, everyone thought that they have given up.

“Li, listen up, my Nightcrystal Kingdom accept the challenge. We shall have vengeance for the million of dead brothers. We will not only kill you, but also your ten clans!” Eventually, one kingdom rose to the challenge. Its king sent out this fierce message.

“A mountain of blades and a sea of fire still won’t be able to stop our Stonecloud Citadel’s determination for revenge. We shall slay Li Qiye!” Another lineage replied to Li Qiye’s challenge.

“Without killing Li Qiye’s ten clans, our eight million strong of the Eastern Sea Kingdom will never return to our home!” One more declared war on Li Qiye next.

“No matter how far you may be, we shall chase you to the very end for the crime of killing our comrades. Our Propitious Sea Kingdom shall offer Li Qiye’s head to our fallen brothers!”

*** *** ***

In a short period, Teeming Fish from all over the seas accepted the challenge in succession. They all swore to kill Li Qiye.

Their cries echoed across the vast oceans. This frightened many cultivators and lineages.

Before this, the Teeming Fish claimed to have millions of kingdoms. Of course, people knew that this was only a boast, but after seeing one after another rising up against Li Qiye, they realized for a second time just how powerful and pervasive this tribe was.

Another thing of note was that the tribe was so quiet several days earlier but in just one night, many Teeming kingdoms declared war all at once. People could faintly guess something from this.

“Very good, come then, my butcher blade is waiting. Bring ten millions, I’ll slay ten millions, bring one trillion, I’ll still slay one trillion. And as for the Immaculate Expanse and Extreme Yang School, no need to hide any longer. My blade is anxious to have its fill of your blood.” Li Qiye’s response was also quite fierce.

“Insufferable Little Qiye, Our Immaculate Expanse vows to not give up until your death.” The expanse responded without any reservation.

“Human child, even if you prepare an inferno of blades, the greatest of formation, our Extreme Yang School will still annihilate you into ashes!” The Extreme Yang School sent out their answer as well.

“Count our Ophidian Tribe in as well!” Another enemy of Li Qiye released a message.

“And my Dual-pupils Sect!” The sect master of this lineage also sent out a strong message: “Kill Li Qiye to rid the Heaven Spirit World of his evil!”

“Very well, the nobodies want to play too. I don’t mind more debts, all come then, little children. Your grandfather will be waiting for you at the Peacock Land!” Li Qiye’s laughter resounded through the ocean in an incomparably arrogant tone!

Such overbearing attitude left many people dumbfounded.

Someone murmured: “This is how a man should be. Challenging the entire world with one’s own strength. Even if he dies, his life would still have been full of glory!”

“Rumble!” On this day, huge waves were thrown into the sky and blotted out the sun. The entire Jade Sea was shaking because of this.

The horizon turned white after loud detonations due to the monstrous waves being pushed upward. If one had a high vantage point to look down on this, they would definitely be rewarded with a majestic scene.

The Peacock Land was the central area at this moment. In all directions came the hordes of Teeming Fish. Each legions had a different system and formation as they surged for this place.

The countless kingdoms have mobilized at the same time with billions of fish. In both the sky and the ocean, only Teeming Fish were to be found.

There was no end as far as the eyes could see. Anywhere where the light could reach was occupied with fish.

The troops from all over the world from this tribe gathered together to form a mighty army.

“Oh mommy, the Teeming Fish is using all of their forces!” Many people nearly wet their pants after seeing this lineup. Those who came for the treasures no longer dared to linger behind and quickly ran away from this land of turmoil.

“Damn humans!” Some of the human cultivators who were already here wanted to escape. However, the radius around the Peacock Land was completely sealed by the Teeming Fish. These fleeing cultivators suffered attacks right away.

Even though they were quite strong, they still couldn’t escape death for they faced billions of Teeming Fish. With miserable screams, they were instantly eaten by the fish. Not even little bone residues were left behind.

They died with regrets for not listening to Li Qiye earlier. If they have left as soon as possible, they wouldn’t have attract this fatal disaster resulting in a death without a burial.

“Take out the heavenly mirrors.” Many lineages were worried at this grand event. No one dared to personally come and watch unless they were top experts. The majority of the lineages didn’t want to miss this unique battle so they didn’t mind wasting refined jades to activate their heavenly mirrors.

Through the mirrors, they could watch the battlefield full of Teeming Fish.

Fish heads were bobbing back and forth. The ferocious army was armed with tridents and harpoons. The glint of their weapons illuminated the whole sea. This was not a friendly sight for cowards to watch.

Even the sect masters and royal lords were creeped out by this. The billion strong army could tear through everything. Just a few bites from each of the soldiers could destroy an entire great power.

“Messing with the Teeming Fish is like playing with a hornet’s nest.” One sect master murmured while breaking out in cold sweat.

Another royal lord commented with anxiety: “Who would want to provoke these vicious fish alone outside of sea gods, treefathers, and Immortal Emperors?”

“They aren’t only trying to kill Li Qiye this time for revenge. This is a showing of their military might as well so that the world could see their frightening strength as a deterrent measure, lest others want to suffer a genocide.” One ancestor was quite discerning.

In fact, a few older ancestors knew this full well, especially those from experienced lineages like the Golden isle or the Void Imperfection Three Schools. They have been around for too long.

Li Qiye has dealt a great blow to the Teeming Fish to the point of trampling on their reputation and prestige.

Eating dragon tendons publicly was humiliating to this tribe but now, they even killed the symbol of the race which was the tribemaster and massacred million of fish. This was shaking the very foundation and status of this tribe in the Heaven Spirit World.

If they didn’t kill him today, they would never be able to regain their fierce reputation again. Perhaps the world would start to think that they were easily bullied. Many lineages would want to seize their territories and people would want to eat dragon tendons.

Because of this, the tribe must unite and mustered up billions of troops. This was not only to kill Li Qiye but also to show off their force and solidarity as a deterrent measure. Provoke them and face genocide!

The Teeming experts crowded in the sky and in the sea. The terrible experts up there were all in human form.

These old men were all dressed in gold or wearing regal clothings since they were high elders and kings. There were no lack of Virtuous Paragons here.

Of course, it was difficult to see a God-Monarch in the Teeming Tribe. They were quite weak in terms of cultivation. Not to mention charming spirits, they were still very far behind ordinary sea demons.

However, due to their large population, they still had quite a few Virtuous Paragons. The harder trick was to have one of these paragons reach the God-Monarch level.

Despite the exaggeration in the rhetoric regarding their numbers, the mass ahead was indeed too immense. No other lineages could gather so many children. This magnificent scene was something only the Teeming Fish could do.

Eventually, their kingdoms have finished gathering the troops in this place. At this time, the ophidian treants and Dual-pupils Sect along with another dozen lineages have aggregated to form an alliance with the Teeming Fish in order to assault the Peacock Land.
