Five Law Domain experts stood in the void with Law Domains looming behind them, emitting terrifying waves of energy.
The entire world seemed to be frozen.
Chi Jing’s face was devoid of expression as she stared at Hong Jiuyuan, mountain lord Gui Yuan and the others. She said, “Are you really sure you want to challenge the Tianyuan Region? I will solemnly inform you that this will be considered as waging war against the Tianyuan Region.”
Chi Jing’s calm voice contained chilling, heart-pounding killing intent.
If the top five sects and factions were to jointly challenge the Tianyuan Region, it would be a real war, and the scale of the battle would be the greatest in Hunyuan Heaven in thousands of years, as it was the first time that other forces dared to challenge the nine regions.
Hong Jiuyuan said with a smile, “Grand elder Chi Jing, the Tianyuan Region controls 800 prefectures and occupies numerous training resources. It is really unfair to us.”
Mountain Lord Gui Yuan added, “If grand elder Chi Jing is willing to share 500 prefectures with us, we won’t offend you again.”
A sneer tugged the corners of Chi Jing’s lips. “Very well, when my master returns and learns about this, I think he would praise you for your courage.”
Hong Jiuyuan’s and the others’ expressions changed a little, and a flicker of fear flashed in the depths of their eyes. After all, supreme sovereign Cang Yuan was one of the most powerful existences in Hunyuan Heaven.
Had it not been for Cang Yuan’s disappearance, the Tianyuan Region’s constant deterioration over the years, and supreme sovereign Wan Zu’s support for them, they wouldn’t have dared to come stroke a tiger’s whisker.
“Haha, if the supreme sovereign could return to Hunyuan Heaven, how could he have ignored the Tianyuan Region for so many years?” Zhao Xiansun remarked with a faint smile.
Chi Jing stared icily at Zhao Xiansun. How could she not tell that the Wanzu Region was the hand manipulating the top five forces to declare war on the Tianyuan Region? The Wanzu Region must have promised great benefits to the top five forces to drive them to throw away their lives working for the Wanzu Region.
Wanzu Region had been preparing for this day for a long time.
The Wanzu Region couldn’t take action directly because that would lead to infighting among the nine regions, and the other supreme sovereigns wouldn’t sit back and watch. However, the Wanzu Region didn’t act this time and instead manipulated the top five forces to attack the Tianyuan Region. If the Tianyuan Region were defeated, the Wanzu Region would have more than enough reason to remove the Tianyuan Region as one of the nine regions.
Sometimes a superficial show was especially important.
Of course, Chi Jing knew that supreme sovereign Wan Zu’s plot was ultimately to force Cang Yuan out, and the other supreme sovereigns most likely also had such an intention.
The efforts that supreme sovereign Wan Zu had put in to force Cang Yuan out in previous years weren’t enough, and he was beginning to become impatient. This time he intended to destroy the Tianyuan Region to force Cang Yuan to appear in Hunyuan Heaven!
However, Zhao Xiansun seemed unconcerned towards Chi Jing’s murderous gaze. He swept a glance across the other six Law Domain experts, saying with a smile, “Everyone, the Tianyuan Region is now facing a challenge with the risk of being overturned. If it happens, the Tianyuan Region most likely can’t be listed as one of the nine regions, isn’t that right?
“Otherwise, the countless other sects and factions in Hunyuan Heaven would feel indignant and unsatisfied, and it could lead to disorder. This wouldn’t be a good thing to Hunyuan Heaven, isn’t that right?”
The other six Law Domain experts kept quiet. The nine regions could be called the rulers of Hunyuan Heaven; therefore, the nine regions had to maintain power. If any one of the nine regions deteriorates or is surpassed by other sects or factions, then the problem lies with that region.
The smile on Zhao Xiansun’s face intensified when he saw their silence. He turned to Chi Jing and continued leisurely, “So, if the Tianyuan Region is overturned, it naturally can’t be called one of the nine regions anymore and, of course, won’t have the qualifications to take charge of the Ancestral Dragon Lantern.”
His expression turned sincere as he continued, “Grand elder Chi Jing, it’s not that we don’t want to give you the Ancestral Dragon Lantern, but we plan to wait until the Tianyuan Region settles all the problems it is faced with first and then sit stably before we hand over the Ancestral Dragon Lantern. The Tianyuan Region would more justifiably deserve the Ancestral Dragon Lantern then, isn’t that right?”
Chi Jing fixed Zhao Xiansun with an icy stare. “Old bird Zhao, the Tianyuan Region will remember the Wanzu Region’s actions today and will certainly repay it in the future.”
Hearing the way Chi Jing addressed him, Zhao Xianxuan immediately darkened because Chi Jing wasn't the first person to call him that name. The person who started it was Chi Jing’s senior brother. That bastard Zhuan Zhu!
Chi Jing shot an icy cold stare at Hong Jiuyuan and the others. “If you really want to declare war on my Tianyuan Region, I will take it on behalf of the Tianyuan Region. From now on, your five forces will be included on the Tianyuan Region’s enemy list, and your people will be killed if they dare get close to the Tianyuan Region’s area!”
Her words were filled with chilling killing intent.
If the top five forces united, there would be no less than eight Law Domain experts, but Chi Jing wasn’t afraid in the slightest because Hong Jiuyuan’s Law Domain foundation was too weak. If a battle really broke out between them, the five Law Domain experts from Tianyuan Region could each deal with two enemies at once.
Therefore, the top five forces could pressure the Tianyuan Region, but to shake the foundation, they would have to pay a huge price for it!
As Chi Jing’s voice faded, a murderous aura spread out and saturated the air.
When Chi Jing’s voice faded, she clenched her fists, and the Law Domain behind her suddenly expanded. Then, a wave of azure light swept out and rolled Zhou Yuan and the others into her Law Domain. Her figure gradually faded and completely disappeared.
Her icy cold voice, filled with killing intent, echoed throughout the world. “If you want to fight, the Tianyuan Region will accompany you to the end! Let’s see whether your five forces will dissipate or whether my Tianyuan Region will collapse!”
The entire world fell silent.
Even Hong Jiuyuan, mountain lord Gui Yuan and the other Law Domain experts tensed up.
The other six Law Domain experts took a deep look at them before they flung their sleeves and expanded their Law Domains. The people of their regions were all swept inside and disappeared in a flash.
Hong Jiuyuan, mountain lord Gui Yuan and the other three Law Domain experts cast a glance at Zhao Xiansun, who nodded at them before vanishing.
Hong Jiuyuan, mountain lord Gui Yuan and the others exchanged glances and inhaled a deep breath. Then, their expressions grew increasingly fierce. It was their perfect opportunity to bite at the Tianyuan Region because it was at its weakest state. Moreover, supreme sovereign Wan Zu had promised to guide them to understand the Saint stage once they completed the task.
If one of them becomes a Saint expert, so what if Cang Yuan returns?!
With this thought, they unhesitantly turned around and disappeared into the sky.
As the several Law Domain experts left, everybody else on the mountain gradually woke from the repressive atmosphere and sped away frantically.
They knew that when the news spread, the entire Hunyuan Heaven would be shaken. Compared with that earth-shaking matter, the nine regions tournament could be considered nothing.
A super war that involved the nine regions was about to begin.Previous Chapter Next Chapter
