Perhaps only the experts of the Yan Huang Ancient Country knew of it. The Ancient Emperor's Demon Vanquishing Sword Talisman was something that the various experts and leaders of their countries had given to them.
All those at the Primordial Spirit Transformation Realm and above had it.
As the ultimate guard of their life, or the trump card in a crucial battle.
The Ancient Emperor's Demon Vanquishing Sword Talisman could be used singularly, or in combination with others. When used in combination, the power was naturally amplified corresponding to the number used.
This time, everyone who had one had pulled theirs out. That was the power of this talisman!
At that moment, a huge, heavenly, golden sword materialized above the head of the Fire Source Crystal Beast King.
From within the sword, the visage of an ancient emperor could be seen. On one side was a sky palace, on the other was the depths of hell!
Both sides of the sword blade depicted the reality of this world!
The majesty of the sky palace and the horrors of hell. The two great forces clashed in their juxtaposition, resulting in an even more terrifying power!
It has to be said that the moment this sword fired out, even Wu Yu, from within the Fire Source Crystal Beast King's body, could feel the power that made one hold their breath. This caliber of power definitely outclassed the Fire Source Crystal Beast King, and Wu Yu had never seen the likes of it before!
Therefore, the Fire Source Crystal Beast King gave a low moan upon seeing this Ancient Emperor Demon Vanquishing Sword, and immediately turned to flee!
Before this, the Fire Source Crystal Beast King had never once lowered its head. It was even actively bullying its opponents.
All of the Yan Huang Ancient Country people hollered as one. In a moving moment, they wielded the enormous Ancient Emperor Demon Vanquishing Sword as one, sending it flying violently towards the head of the Fire Source Crystal Beast King!
Although the Ancient Emperor Demon Vanquishing Sword was huge, it flew with extreme speed! The Fire Source Crystal Beast King was completely hapless, with no form of escape!
Everyone could clearly see the Ancient Emperor Demon Vanquishing Sword pierce through the head of the Fire Source Crystal Beast King, sticking into the Fire Source Ancient Crystal!
In that moment, the Fire Source Crystal Beast King let loose a howl of agony. Its rage poured forth in a sea of fire, engulfing all of them.
This was the first time that the Fire Source Crystal Beast King had been in such a wretched state.
All of the Ancient Emperor Demon Vanquishing Sword's power had crashed against the Fire Source Ancient Crystal. Just as the Fire Source Crystal Beast King howled, the huge Fire Source Ancient Crystal shattered violently into countless pieces!
The Fire Source Crystal Beast King's life actually depended on this ancient crystal.
But once the ancient crystal shattered, its life met its end!
The Ancient Emperor Demon Vanquishing Sword had directly smashed the crystal, bringing an abrupt end to the howls of the Fire Source Crystal Beast King.
Wu Yu had been waiting for this moment for a long time.
He had thought it a madman's plan, but it had gone smoothly. However, now was the crucial moment.
As the Fire Source Ancient Crystal shattered, the Fire Source Crystal Beast King's body suddenly turned from crystal to elemental fire.
The Spirit of the Universe had already disappeared, leaving behind the ancient crystal and some flames.
Wu Yu was within these flames.
The Spirits of the Universe were so marvelous and different.
As the ancient crystal shattered, it meant that its life was over, leaving nothing behind but fire and fortune.
Wu Yu was still wreathed by the surging flames.
However, he had forcibly endured for the sake of this moment! Just at this moment, he summoned all his clones!
And then they used the Prime Heavenly Lord Supreme God Technique!
If he did not use this Supreme God Technique, his clones would definitely be readily burnt clean away by the primal fire.
After he had finished using them, he had the thousand clones leap out of the Fire Source Crystal Beast King's body while the flames were still burning. It was already dead, which was why no one stopped Wu Yu at this point.
Jiang Qijun and the others were at least 100 times further than Wu Yu from the Fire Source Crystal Beast King, which had been fleeing up till that point!
They had surrounded the Fire Source Crystal Beast King and attacked it. Who would have guessed that a person would actually pop up from within the Fire Source Crystal Beast King's belly to steal their spoils?
Wu Yu and the thousand clones blazed into action!
Under the cover of the primal fire, he reached the shards of the ancient crystal. The originally whole ancient crystal was now shattered into dozens of shards. This was a convenient boon for Wu Yu.
Flustered, his clones swarmed up to seize the ancient crystals, and they were stored in Wu Yu's Sumeru Pouch.
In truth, Wu Yu's tactics up till now had been exceptionally effective. At this moment, the experts of the Yan Huang Ancient Country were still reeling from the power of the Ancient Emperor Demon Vanquishing Sword. Wu Yu had already used the cover of the primal fire to readily scoop up all the ancient crystals into his own pocket.
"Something's not right. The ancient crystal seems to have disappeared!"
Although Wu Yu had acted quickly, the presence or absence of the ancient crystal was a significant thing. They very quickly found out that the ancient crystal, which had been smoldering with heat up until then, had already vanished!
The primal fire was still there for the moment, but the ancient crystal had already disappeared.
Without the Fire Element ancient Crystal, the baseless primal flames ceased quickly. As they died out, the sea of flames vanished as well, signifying the thorough death of the Fire Source Crystal Beast King.
"How is that possible!?"
In a flash, they saw a huge horde of figures within the fire. These people had appeared out of nowhere, and there were actually 1,000 of them. This scene was completely unthinkable, and all the spectators were stunned for a moment.
They did not think that the person appearing from the belly of the Fire Source Crystal Beast King was actually an outsider to the Taigu Immortal Path - they simply thought it another oddity of the Taigu Immortal Path!
After all, who would dare to steal the spoils of the Yan Huang Ancient Country people?
As the elemental flames subsided, and Wu Yu saw the people surrounding him, he started as well. With Jiang Qijun present, as well as a few others, he recognized them as the elite of the Yan Huang Ancient Country. It seemed like those who had assaulted the Fire Source Crystal Beast King had all been Yan Huang Ancient Country people....
"I stole what was theirs?" Wu Yu could not hold back a wry smile.
If it had been everyone fighting for it, and he had stolen it, that might still be forgivable. Right now, it was the Yan Huang Ancient Country people who had claimed the Fire Source Crystal Beast King alone. They had battled hard to kill it, but Wu Yu had appeared at this moment to steal their spoils....
To those around him, this was unforgivable.
"Who is this!? Are these clones?"
"1,000 clones is no mean feat! Did he take the ancient crystal? Is he human or spirit?"
Many people here did not recognize Wu Yu.
Except Jiang Qijun.
At this moment, her expression was stricken. She stared at Wu Yu. The others were preparing to attack Wu Yu, whether spirit or human. Wu Yu had taken what was theirs. They had to fight for it! Such a huge Fire Source Ancient Crystal - it was a priceless treasure!
Jiang Qijun stopped them. She moved slightly forward, her gaze uneasy. She questioned, "What's your name? Why would you be here? Did you take away our Fire Source Ancient Crystal?"
Three consecutive questions.
From the first question, she clearly did not remember Wu Yu's name. In truth, martial cultivators had excellent memory. She had not forgotten it - she did not want to remember it!
"Jiang Qijun, do you know this person?"
"Who is he?"
The others immediately turned to pressure Jiang Qijun. Many of them were of an even higher status than Jiang Qijun, and she was forced to turn harsh. She screamed, "Answer me!"
Wu Yu roughly understood the situation now.
"Even though they are from the Yan Huang Ancient Country, this ancient crystal that I risked my life for cannot be returned to them.
"Right now, they are at their most fatigued. It does me no good to play for time."
Thinking thus, he knew that he had no need to answer Jiang Qijun's questions. He had to quickly flee!
However, before fleeing, he had a brainwave. Since Jiang Qijun did not trust him, and had not told anybody about the matter of the Heaven Devouring Evil Lord, and all present were Yan Huang Ancient Country people, then a chance for Wu Yu had come!
Therefore, he and his thousand clones all spoke at the same time, answering Jiang Qijun's question.
"My name is not important. But, Jiang Qijun, I told you about an important matter. It concerns the survival of the entire Jambu Realm. You promised me that you would tell all the experts of the Yan Huang Ancient Country. May I ask if you have done so?"
He sparked everyone's curiosity.
Saying thus, if Wu Yu managed to escape, everyone would definitely ask about Wu Yu's identity, and what he meant.
No matter what their reaction, at least all the Yan Huang Ancient Country people here would know the details. News of such an important matter would definitely spread!
"How do you know my name!?" Jiang Qijun was most startled by this. She remembered not telling Wu Yu her name.
Right now, she was furious and thwarted. Everyone was looking at her, their eyes full of questions, and even suspicion. All of this had been brought upon her by Wu Yu. She could deeply feel that Wu Yu was taking revenge on her, in answer to her previous coldness!
"Talking nonsense and stealing our things. You're asking to die!" In a fury, Jiang Qijun decided to take Wu Yu down and retrieve the ancient crystal first. She would naturally explain the other matters after dealing with him.
After he spoke, Wu Yu was very relieved. He knew that regardless of whether he could protect the ancient crystal today, at least he had done great work! Jiang Qijun would have to explain herself, and the news would be spread. It might not even be just the Yan Huang Ancient Country people who knew. Because Wu Yu stealing from them was a huge affair, and details of such huge affairs would definitely spread like wildfire!
The instant that Jiang Qijun attacked was the instant that Wu Yu fled!
1,000 clones scattered simultaneously. First, they broke through the circle at the weakest link, then they scattered.
At this time, they were completely confused. It seemed like they were just realizing that they had not seen which was Wu Yu's real body.
Then, which should they catch?Previous Chapter Next Chapter
