“Do you want me to help?” Magiris asked with a smile.
“Wait a bit.” Chen Feng nodded.
It was a two against three, but it became a stalemate. Seeing that, Chen Feng became somewhat surprised and he sighed somewhat.
Although Heng Ri and the space-time extra-terrestrial creature were unique creatures of chaos with formidable talent for cultivation, wasn’t this display from the Gold Immortals from the Celestial Longevity Plane a little too lacking?
This standard is not that much better compared to the Gold Immortals of the Immortal Plane. Chen Feng silently assessed them.
If all the cultivators from the Celestial Planes are only at this level, when we eventually face the Immortal Plane in a war, we will surely end up losing.
Magiris saw through Chen Feng’s thoughts and said with a smile, “You said it yourself just now. This is a small place. The members of the imperial family will surely not be this weak, no?”
“True that.” Chen Feng nodded.
By then, the attacks from Tun Ri’s group and the 200 cultivators under them had finally caused the Heavensfire County’s army to collapse. In the end, the soldiers began fleeing.
Making a headcount, they found that 3,000 soldiers from the army had been killed in the battle. Adding the 1,000 killed by the Blazing Sun move earlier, that meant a loss of 4,000 soldiers.
There were also many amongst the escapees who were bearing wounds.
Tun Ri’s group did not feel particularly burdened by this. Soldiers from the Boundless Corps would never think much about other cultivators.
“Heavensfire County! You dare intercept and attack Young Master Longevity Celestial? Soon, the army from our Boundless Corps will arrive to flatten this Heavensfire County!” Tun Ri shouted loudly, his voice spreading across the entire Heavensfire County.
The 200 cultivators behind him also shouted, “Flatten Heavensfire County!”
Their voices echoed around non-stop until all the cultivators in the Heavensfire County felt terrified. Some began cursing those death-seeking fellows who dared provoke the Boundless Corps.
The Boundless Corps. What kind of existence was that?
Young Master Longevity Celestial. What kind of character was that?
Those fellows were simply bringing a calamity down on Heavensfire County with their actions.
Thinking about it caused the entire Heavensfire County to fall into a state of panic.
The wars in the Celestial Planes were sometimes even more violent compared to that between the other worlds.
For small counties like them, offending the imperial family was a serious crime. Moreover, this was the legendary Young Master Longevity Celestial.
Shaking his head, Chen Feng then stretched his hand out. Next, a massive palm silhouette made its way into another layer of space to grab hold of one of the Gold Immortals who was fighting Heng Ri.
The Gold Immortal began begging for mercy, a look of dread in his eyes. Never in his wildest imagination did he think that Chen Feng would be so formidable.
“What did you say?” A look of ridicule flashed across Chen Feng’s eyes.
“Young Master, mercy!”
The Gold Immortal spoke up again, but Chen Feng then extended a finger to trace a circle with it. Next, the circle rapidly expanded in size as it hovered up in the sky. All the cultivators within a radius of 50 million kilometres were able to clearly hear the voice begging for mercy.
“It’s Immortal Monarch Heavensfire!” someone cried out in shock.
“Immortal Monarch Heavensfire is the ruler of our Heavensfire County! How can someone like him be caught with just one hand?”
“Did you not hear what happened? These fellows tried to stop and kill Young Master Longevity Celestial! They’ve brought a calamity down on our Heavensfire County.”
“Young Master Longevity Celestial? Didn’t he die already?”
“Humph! Your information is out of date. According to the news I received, Young Master Longevity Celestial has cultivated up to the Gold Immortal stage. Now that he has returned, he will surely stir up a storm of blood.”
“So, that’s what this is all about. However, our Celestial Longevity Plane has so many experts. Surely, they will not just watch as Young Master Longevity Celestial make a mess of the place.”
“What can they do? Do not forget who Young Master Longevity Celestial’s father is. Besides, the way I see it, these fellows simply have a death wish. To think that they would take the initiative to offend Young Master Longevity Celestial. Aren’t they just begging for death here?”
“I doubt it’s that simple.”
“Enough. This is a matter for high-level characters. Minor characters like us cannot participate in this.”
“Who’s participating in this? We are just talking here. Also, we’ve angered Young Master Longevity Celestial now. If the Boundless Corps charges over, our Heavensfire County will be doomed.”
“That’s true. We should think of a way out of this in advance.”
All the discussions between the cultivators from Heavensfire County did not escape Chen Feng’s ears. He scoffed and waved his hand. Following that, the massive palm grasping Immortal Monarch Heavensfire appeared up in the air. Space then rippled and the image created by the power of laws spread out into the surrounding space.
Without any hesitation, Chen Feng crushed Immortal Monarch Heavensfire and the fragments of his power were all absorbed by Chen Feng.
With that, the entire Heavensfire County fell into a state of shock and they panicked. The voices that were discussing the issue disappeared.
Heavensfire County fell deathly silent.
Earlier, they were only feeling worried. Now, that feeling had transformed into fear.
The massive palm silhouette grasped again and another Gold Immortal was caught.
The Gold Immortal was blown up before he could even beg for mercy.
The third Gold Immortal was caught as well. Likewise, his body was blown up with a bang.
Chen Feng had killed off three Gold Immortals in quick succession. Seeing that, all the cultivators in Heavensfire County trembled. Some of the less courageous ones there simply fainted.
“Those two are Immortal Monarch Sovereign Fire and Immortal Monarch Clear Rainbow! Our Heavensfire County only has three Gold Immortals. Now, all three have died. What do we do now?”
“Yes. It’s over for our Heavensfire County.”
“Even if Young Master Longevity Celestial doesn’t do anything, our Heavensfire County will still be doomed.”
“This is all Immortal Monarch Heavensfire and his group’s fault. Why did they choose to participate in this matter? It’s fine if they want to kill themselves, but they actually dragged us down with them!”
“Heavensfire County is in dire straits now. As it so happens, our Ancient Star County can annex it.”
“Oh, no! Do you think the Gold Immortal seniors from our Ancient Star County would screw this up?”
“Hard to say. Hurry, head back to Ancient Star County!”
“The crime that Heavensfire County committed is punishable with the nine familial exterminations. From this moment onwards, all the cultivators of Heavensfire County at the Earthen Immortal stage and above will be assigned to the Boundless Corps to serve as labourers for 10,000 years. Those who dare flee will be killed, their souls destroyed.” Chen Feng’s voice spread out.
After Chen Feng’s group left, the entire Heavensfire County was filled with wails. That one command from Chen Feng had thrown Heavensfire County down to the 18th level of Hell.
From this moment onwards, Heavensfire County can forget about ever rising up again.
After they were done crying, the cultivators at the Earthen Immortal stage and above set off, heading to the Boundless Corps to report for duty. Only a handful of them chose to run away.
The ending of those who chose to flee was not too bright. Should some other forces accept them, then things might not be as bad. However, in the event that no one accepted them, they would have to spend their future days trying to avoid capture and death.
The other alternative would be for them to leave the Celestial Longevity Plane and never return.
For the formidable cultivators at the Heavenly Immortal stage, this was not too bad. But for those beneath the Heavenly Immortal stage, leaving the Celestial Longevity Plane would only hasten their demise.
Rather than leave the Celestial Longevity Plane, most of them chose to serve as labourers for 10,000 years.
Heng Ri and the space-time extra-terrestrial creature returned to move alongside Chen Feng. As for the 200 Heavenly Immortal stage cultivators from the group, they cast looks of awe at Chen Feng.
His earlier actions were simply too impactful.
“You’re so ruthless! All three of them were Gold Immortals.” Magiris sighed.
“Three Gold Immortals? Firstly, this will serve as a warning for the others. Secondly, the fact that these idiots could cultivate up to the Gold Immortal stage means that they have their own hoard of wealth. I can gulp them down to increase my own strength,” Chen Feng replied.
“You monster.” Magiris then clicked his tongue.
“Since some fellows want to turn me into a monster, I will just have to become even more monstrous than they imagined. I will surely not disappoint them,” Chen Feng said, smiling.
“Young Master, Ancient Star County is up ahead,” Da Feng said.
“I know. The other party has already dispatched their soldiers and generals to wait for us,” Chen Feng said with a smile, but there was a thick killing intent within his voice.
“What? These fellows dare show up still? Are they not afraid of death?” Da Feng and the others were surprised.
“The less fear they show towards death, the stronger the one behind them is.” Chen Feng stretched his hand forward and pointed. Next, the Longevity Sword transformed into a one million-zhang-long astral sword that slashed forward.
The power that Chen Feng unleashed this time was several times stronger than his previous move. However, the massive astral sword was quickly shattered and the Longevity Sword transformed into a stream of light to return to Chen Feng’s hand.
“This is not the power of one county, but three counties,” Chen Feng said coolly.
Magiris’ gaze swept forward and he laughed. “An army consisting of 10 Gold Immortals and 100,000 Heavenly Immortals. Tsk, tsk. What a big move!”
Although Magiris was laughing, he was actually feeling very surprised. This force was already a very strong force. It could already put up a fight against his Blackwater Tribe.
“Ten Gold Immortals, eh? No wonder they are not afraid of death. However, just because they are not afraid of dying doesn’t mean they will not die,” Chen Feng said icily.
“Young Master, in addition to Ancient Star County, there are also the territories of Orchid Hill County and Divine Rock County up ahead,” Da Feng said.
“I don’t care who they are or how many men they brought over. Those who dare appear before me must die,” Chen Feng said. The Longevity Wings on his back unfurled to encompass the surrounding skies before rapidly charging forward. Perhaps it had been a deliberate move from Chen Feng, but when his Longevity Wings moved forward, ripples appeared in the surrounding space. Immediately after that, chaos broke out. Every now and again, chaotic streams of energy would fall upon the lands and the hard lands of the Celestial Longevity Plane were easily ripped apart.
“Kill!” Chen Feng’s eyes were filled with thick killing intent. Though, the killing intent within his heart was even greater. These fellows were all members of his own clan. At present, however, they will die to him.
It left an uncomfortable taste in his mouth. Only, that only made him more violent.
“Enemies detected! Enemies detected!”
The 10 Gold Immortals were waiting while maintaining a strict formation, an entangled look on their faces as they looked forward. The 100,000-strong army behind them was continuously gathering its strength, ready to fire out a fierce attack at any moment.
Soon enough, Chen Feng appeared before their eyes.
“It’s the Longevity Wings!”
“Lock him down! Attack together!”
“No! We can only capture him. We cannot kill him.”
“This is Longevity Celestial. I suggest we have a proper discussion with him. The Boundless Corps is not to be trifled with.”
“What are you afraid of? The power behind us is also not to be trifled with.”
