These fellows were Chen Feng’s childhood friends. Back then, they had taken action to help out. But in the face of an opponent at the Paramount Gold Immortal stage, there was nothing they could do. All they could do was pray for him.
“Hopefully Longevity Celestial is safe,” Tian Gang said.
“His two combat puppets went after him. Moreover, it looks like he still has some other tricks up his sleeve. I did hear that the Longevity Tower is in Longevity Celestial’s possession. He is probably fine,” said a young and handsome cultivator who was standing beside Tian Gang. This cultivator was different from Tian Gang and the others. He was someone from the Celestial Longevity Plane, a member of the imperial family. Only, he had been mostly spending his time cultivating off world since birth. He would rarely return to the Celestial Longevity Plane and rely on the resources of the Celestial Longevity Plane. It would not be an exaggeration to say that he was someone who came this far on his own efforts.
“Wu Ren, back then, you looked down on the members of the imperial family. Longevity Celestial is the cream of the imperial family. Why did you choose to help him here?” Tian Gang said with a smile.
“Because I want to borrow his power. More accurately, I want his help,” Wu Ren replied bluntly.
“You sure are frank,” someone beside him said.
“There is nothing to feel embarrassed about. In the face of power, even Paramount Gold Immortals would have to make sacrifices, let alone guys like us who have only just reached the Ageless Gold Immortal stage. That is why I hope Longevity Celestial can escape. The stronger he is, the better it is for me,” Wu Ren said coolly.
“And if he refuses to help you?” Tian Gang chuckled.
“He will.” The expression on Wu Ren’s face remained impassive.
“Oh, so confident? Looks like you’ve made preparations.”
“Naturally.” Wu Ren revealed a cryptic smile, saying nothing else about it.
“If that’s the case, let’s leave. We entered this chaos space too late and failed to get any benefits. A pity. Longevity Celestial has such a big army and power, he must have gotten a great harvest. As it so happens, I need some chaos energy. Looks like I also need to pray for Longevity Celestial’s safe return.”
“That’s right. I also want to trade some items with Longevity Celestial. I have already inquired it before I came. Longevity Celestial has some good items on him.”
“Look. Jian Jun and the others have come.”
“Humph! Jian Jun, Lei Jia, Qing Xia and the others joined forces to attack Longevity Celestial, but it would appear that they failed to get the upper hand. Things are going to get interesting.”
“Let’s go. There’s no point in staying here.”
Tian Gang and the others discussed the issue. In the end, they all left. However, the hundreds of unique creatures and the billion plus Battlers remained there. It did not take long before an order from the Battler Bug Empress made its way through the distant space to them. And so, they began moving out, heading towards the Longevity Alliance. As for the 400 unique creatures, they followed the Battlers.
Chen Feng was bound by the branch, incapable of breaking free. At that very moment, he was able to witness the abilities of the Tree of Life, or more accurately, the abilities of a Paramount Gold Immortal.
Chen Feng felt as though he was jumping between fantasy and reality non-stop. His soul felt as though it had left the body. He wanted to open his eyes, but everything felt so dazzling. Radiant colours were overflowing. Giving it his all, Chen Feng finally managed to grasp a strand of something. After analysing it, he found that it was the power of the Paramount laws. Next, the power dissipated away. Once again, Chen Feng’s heart shook.
The power of the Tree of Life and the Dragon of Life fused as one. It is definitely far stronger than that of a single Paramount Gold Immortal. I wonder, what level is my old man at now? Would he be able to collect this Tree of Life? Chen Feng knew. Given his present level of strength, he would be incapable of breaking free. All he could do was stay on guard while his thoughts flew about.
Sou! Sou! Sou!
Three streams of light swiftly appeared within Chen Feng’s sea of wisdom, shocking him. His eyes snapped open to shine with an eye-catching radiance.
The two combat puppets and the Battler Bug Empress had returned to his sea of wisdom. With this, he now possessed three formidable helpers. He may even have the ability to fight against a Paramount Gold Immortal.
The Battler Bug Empress communicated with Chen Feng. Then, it issued an order to the army of Battlers. Although Chen Feng was presently the captive of a Paramount Gold Immortal and was jumping through spatial turbulence, the Battler Bug Empress’ soul technique was something that time and space could not affect. Moreover, the Battler Bug Empress’ strength had increased since entering the chaos space. While it was not a great increase, its combat power was already close to that of the combat puppets.
“Is it possible to cut this branch?” Chen Feng asked.
The Battler Bug Empress calculated it for a moment before replying, “The branch is formed using the power of Paramount laws. Your two combat puppets are wholly capable of cutting it.”
“That’s good.” Chen Feng nodded. And so, he was no longer anxious to leave. Instead, he stayed behind. He wanted to know why the other party captured him.
“Still, my analysis shows that the main power within this branch is from the Tree of Life,” the Battler Bug Empress said again.
“In other words, the Dragon of Life’s power is now suppressed.” Chen Feng’s eyes shone brighter. They were gradually becoming unaffected by his surroundings.
“That is one way of putting it.”
Chen Feng pondered for a moment before saying, “Go all out to analyse it!”
“Yes!” After replying, the Battler Bug Empress fell silent. A strand of power was pulled out from the branch tying Chen Feng up before it was then devoured by the Battler Bug Empress.
The Battler Bug Empress’ ability to devour power, analyse and make calculations were incredibly formidable. It would not be an exaggeration to say that it possessed the ability to accurately assess objects. Chen Feng had complete faith in the Battler Bug Empress.
It did not take long for the Battler Bug Empress to come up with a result.
“The Tree of Life and Dragon of Life are both wounded, but the Dragon of Life’s injuries are more serious.”
“If that’s the case…” Chen Feng’s eyes shone with even greater intensity and strands of light flowed out from his eyes. Like rainbows, they swiftly encased Chen Feng’s body.
Seemingly having sensed the change happening to Chen Feng, the branch around Chen Feng’s waist abruptly tightened while exerting a suction force. Chen Feng, though, harrumphed and the power acting on his body disappeared.
“In other words, the one who captured me is the Tree of Life?” Chen Feng secretly said.
“Probably,” the Battler Bug Empress replied.
“Unfortunately, we do not know what the other party intends to do.”
“Unable to speculate. It is probably not a bad thing,” the Battler Bug Empress replied.
“The fact that the other party is suffering from serious injuries gives me a chance. Only, I wonder how high my chances of success are?” Chen Feng wondered again.
“Unable to speculate. If we can gather up all of our forces, then we will have a better chance.”
Chen Feng knew that the Battler Bug Empress was talking about the army of Battlers and the 400 Gold Immortal stage unique creatures. At that very moment, however, they only have the Battler Bug Empress and the two combat puppets. Naturally, there was also Chen Feng.
“We’ll deal with it one step at a time, then.” Chen Feng smiled. Although he was confident in his ability to escape, he wanted to take a gamble. He wanted to obtain this Tree of Life. It was a divine tree on a higher level than the Longevity Tree; more ancient as well. Its value was practically immeasurable.
It would not be an exaggeration to say that this was the most valuable treasure that Chen Feng had ever encountered since he began cultivating. Even the corpses of Paramount Gold Immortals were far inferior compared to it.
It was unknown just how long had passed, be it one year or ten years or longer. Chen Feng felt himself becoming lost in the river of time. In the end, space shook and the branch on his waist disappeared. Next, Chen Feng fell onto hard ground.
Chi! Chi! Chi! Chi! Chi! Chi!
That was the sound of power coursing within Chen Feng’s body. He immediately stood up. The first thing he beheld was the Tree of Life rising up in front of his eyes. The tree trunk remained immobile but its branches swayed, giving off the impression of an incoming spring breeze.
