Finally, he could again see the Great Sage, Heaven's Equal, the Victorious Fighting Buddha...... A heroic figure, standing against the tides, and defending himself as best he could. Still, he was gradually losing.
There were too many opponents. It was hundreds against one!
The other three shadowy figures were starting to become clear as well. They too were taking on hundreds of opponents. No matter how incredible their Mystiques were, there was no chance against such odds.
One was a pig demon, exuding a fearsome aura. He wielded a nine-toothed harrow. It was the treasure of Full Moon of Nanshan - the Supreme Gold Harrow!
The wild boar demon did not have the Great Sage's golden eyes, but he killed with equal ferocity, and perhaps even a little more. A swing of his Supreme Gold Harrow rent the very air itself. His opponents screamed as they were sucked into the voids that the slashes created. They were dead without doubt. Perhaps not even their corpses would be left behind.
"Marshal Tian Peng."
Full Moon of Nanshan stammered, watching the wild boar demon as a rush of fire flooded to his eyes.
He had been joking about who had been more handsome. But now face to face with his benefactor, Full Moon of Nanshan was completely gripped by his savage battle technique.
The wild boar demon had the same bloodline as he did, although he was now an elite immortal emperor. He twirled the Supreme Gold Harrow with preternatural skill, plowing the entire space between heaven and earth with a savage bloodlust.
"And the Curtain Lifting General."
Ye Xixi's eyes were stars as she watched another figure.
This was a ghostly immortal emperor, black mist swirling around him. His foreboding aura was all too prominent, and his powerful frame rose and fell within their murky depths!
Within the gloom, two dark eyes shone with black light. He tore into his opponents, parts of their bodies flying out from behind him.
In his hands was the Demon Subduing True Scepter, that Ye Xixi had obtained. With each swing he called forth black sand, that grew into a majestic and meandering river. It continued to flow faster and faster around him, sweeping up his enemies until they perished within.
Besides them was another huge figure, a snow-white mystical dragon.
The white mystical dragon even resembled Luo Pin a little. It vanished and reappeared out of the void, thundering forth with its Eight Division Pagodas Mystique!
Eight Division Pagodas bracing it, the dragon charged its attackers, trampling them to bits.
The white mystical dragon seemed to be the most elegant of them all, and yet its killing power matched that of its comrades. Its dragon eyes were also filled with a cold murderous fury, that grew with each opponent it faced.
"What is happening?"
Luo Pin was entranced by the white mystical dragon for a long time. By the time she regained her senses, she realized that the four were losing the fight.
Each fo these four looked nigh invincible individually. They were without question among the strongest beings ever to exist.
Even so, they were losing this battle. The space that they had been hemmed into offered no escape. More and more bodies piled onto them, swamping them with fatal numbers.
Each of these fighters were at least immortal emperors. And every move of theirs was enough to kill Wu Yu hundreds of times over!
Even so, the four were unable to stand the tidal wave of attackers.
As they continued to fall, the stele's visions continued to grow clearer.
The shadowy attackers soon became clear as well. Wu Yu was paralyzed with shock. Them?
On the field, millions of immortals from the sky palaces, countless ghostly immortals from the hells - all of them were attacking those four!
Before, in Eternal Emperor Tomb, he had seen heaven and hell join forces to destroy the demons.
Wu Yu had not expected to see the same group of people now fighting the Great Sage, Heaven's Equal and his comrades. Without question, the Great Sage and the others were among the strongest ever to walk the sky palaces. And yet these indomitable figures were being crushed by sheer numbers. The entire world was against them. The might of heaven and hell together - only then could these four be stopped.
This was the same force that had crushed the entire Demon Immortal Realm.
How could the four of them stand a chance?
Jade Emperor, Ten Yama Kings - all of these legends stood side by side, attacking the Great Sage, Heaven's Equal who had bequeathed his legacy to Wu Yu and his other friends.
Back in Eternal Emperor Tomb, Wu Yu had not recognized many of these figures until Wu Jun had explained it all to him. And now, Wu Yu recognized each of them.
"Celestial Venerable of the Primordial Beginning...... Heavenly Lord of Spiritual Treasures...... Grand Supreme Elderly Lord!"
The three majestic immortals were each a pillar of strength for the sky palaces. They were attacking the golden-armored monkey. Not even the Victorious Fighting Buddha could stand against so many.
Besides the three Pure Ones, the Great Emperor of Middle Heaven North Star and Old Man of the South Pole were also attacking the Great Sage, Heaven's Equal. He had his hands full.
Even the strongest god of war throughout the sky palaces could not deal with the combined armies of Heaven and Hell.
"You have committed a terrible blasphemy, and still you do not repent! Die!"
From the stele, a terribly severe voice rang out, echoing deep within their heads.
This was the voice of the Jade Emperor!
Wu Yu and the others did not know how the voice had managed to come out of the stele, but all four of them felt like getting on their knees and kowtowing in submission before that voice.
What manner of power was this?
Just one utterance from him had them in submission, complete, total submission. Such was the authority of the Jade Emperor.
Wu Yu still had yet to see the Jade Emperor in person. Previously, he had seen him in the Eternal Emperor Tomb's scene, and now within the stele. Previously, a mere picture had him in awe, but it lacked the oomph of the real thing.
But that severe voice made Wu Yu feel like he was right before the Jade Emperor. All four were extremely shaken.
Not just mortals, but any of the Great Void Immortal Realm and below would probably be forced to their knees on the spot!
At the same time, the deadly figures of the Ten Yama Kings were swarming the Curtain Lifting General. As a ghostly immortal himself, the Curtain Lifting General seemed to be holding his ground against all ten of them.
But from another direction, the Witch Goddess, Black and White Impermanence, all of them joined in the offense, and the Curtain Lifting General could not fend them all off.
"So that is the ancestor who gave me my legacy. How incredible he is!" Ye Xixi watched the Ten Yama Kings fight her ancestor, who was also parrying blows against the finest of Hell - Black and White Impermanence, and other hellish fiends.
The epitome of fortitude!
Ye Xixi had been with Wu Yu back at Eternal Emperor Tomb, when she saw all manner of immortal and ghostly immortal side by side, slaughtering the demon immortals at Demon Immortal Realm with wild abandon. They had seemed unstoppable - even the Ten Yama Kings' underlings could slay scores of demon immortals at a time.
And now, Ye Xixi had confirmed for herself that no one could take on the Curtain Lifting General in a one on one fight.
Her heart lifted in anticipation at her own legacy. However, the images on the stele were coming to a close, and all of them watched in dismay.
Under the combined onslaught of heaven and hell, the Great Sage, Heaven's Equal, Marshal Tian Peng, Curtain Lifting General, and Eight Division Heavenly Dragon finally succumbed. They could only send the heavily injured Eight Division Heavenly Dragon away, and then the remaining three crumbled into ash, falling as the other demon immortals had.
A terrible end. Hopelessness filled the air.
It had probably been this battle which had caused Sage's Equal Sky, Marshal Sky, and Curtain Lifting Sky to be left in the state that they were.
But why had all the immortal emperors forgotten this battle so completely?
They could not remember, and did not even know who the Great Sage, Heaven's Equal was. Not Primeval Mighty Miracle God, not the Dhrtarastra, nor the other immortal emperors, who should have been more familiar with the Great Sage than anyone else. They had not known who Great Sage, Heaven's Equal was at all.
Even if they had amnesia, it could not be amnesia across the entirety of the sky palaces, could it?
All four looked towards the stele, and saw bloody words appear of them: Our destruction awaits vengeance!
These four words were poignant with the sorrow and anger of the heroes!
At this moment, Wu Yu felt the Ruyi Jingu Bang quiver with an emotional resonance, responding to the deep hatred, to the sea of blood!Previous Chapter Next Chapter
