Sikong Cuo was infuriated.
However, he looked around, and found that Fan Tianze and the other few God domain experts were all staring at him coldly and unhappily, so he gradually calmed down.
For the first time, he felt deeply powerless.
Even if Fan Tianze and the others weren’t around, given only Nie Tian’s current battle prowess and his many powerful Saint domain subordinates, he couldn’t win a fight against him.
Not to mention that he was in such a situation.
He suddenly regretted coming to the Realm of Maelstrom.
“Whatever! You must give me an explanation!” he shouted.
“Explanation?” Nie Tian shook his head and laughed. “It’s Eldest Senior Brother Dou Tianchen who has taken the Heavenly Stellar Stream. What does this have to do with me? If you want an explanation, you can go to the Realm of Fragmentary Star to find him.”
“I, I...” Sikong Cuo, who felt resentful, suddenly turned around and flew toward the Realm of Maelstrom.
Watching him leave in anger, the God and Saint domain experts present, such as Zhang Qiling, Li Wanfa, and Ling Bingyun, smiled.
“He’s unlucky,” someone murmured, “If there had been no Nie Tian, he would have been the next Lord of the Stars. Unfortunately, Nie Tian is so outstanding that he looks mediocre in comparison.”
Fang Yuan and Wang Meijia, who were still there, looked slightly embarrassed when they heard the whispers.
However, deep down, they knew that as long as Nie Tian was alive, the others would never have a chance to win when they vied to become the Lord of the Stars in the future.
“You won’t even wait for Luo Wanxiang?” Nie Tian shouted.
Hearing this, Sikong Cuo, who flew towards the Realm of Maelstrom, came to a sudden stop, looking hesitant.
But after a while, he sped off again.
Fang Yuan snorted coldly. “It’s likely that he didn’t want to get involved with Luo Wanxiang again to avoid getting into trouble. There’s a lot of evidence that Luo Wanxiang is privately in collusion with the Phantasms. He is the one Luo Wanxiang has been very supportive of. At this point, if he still gets involved with him, it won’t be good for his future development in our sect.”
Nie Tian nodded.
“Is Vice Sectmaster Luo… really coming?” Wang Meijia asked curiously.
Squinting, Nie Tian stared into the distance. “The All Manifestations Star Banner is almost here. Unless Luo Wanxiang is willing to give up his divine tool, he’ll definitely appear!”
“His arrival means the battle may start ahead of time,” Fan Tianze said in a serious tone.
The expression of Ji Yuanquan from the Void Spirit Society flickered as he received the latest news. “Gupi has left the Domain of Flame’s End and entered the Domain of Heaven Python. Nie Tian, are you sure you can deal with it?”
As soon as he said this, everyone present looked very grave.
The atmosphere also instantly became tense.
God domain experts like Fan Tianze had ages of experience of fighting outsider grand monarchs. Grand Monarch Bloodlust of the Demons, Grand Monarch Dark Nether of the Phantasms, and Grand Monarch Nether Channeler of the Fiends couldn’t scare them.
In fact, the humans had gained the upper hand in most of their previous battles.
Therefore, they hadn’t been frightened when they had learned that multiple outsider grand monarchs were coming at them while all of their late God domain experts were absent.
The only thing that could really scare them was that strange thing, Gupi.
Gupi was the great terror that had left them helpless and powerless.
Nie Tian spread his hands, and sensibly said, “I’m not sure. I can only say that I’ll try to seal it, but I’m not sure if I’ll succeed.”
“You brat! You could give us a little hope,” Ji Yuanquan said with a wry smile.
Nie Tian looked very relaxed as he said, “Let’s take care of the outsider invaders first, and leave Gupi till the end. Anyway, the mortals of the Domain of Heaven Python and qi warriors with low cultivations have left in advance. If I really can’t get rid of Gupi, at worst we’ll evacuate. When I get stronger, I’ll be able to seal it.”
“I’m afraid Gupi won’t give you the chance to grow stronger,” Fan Tianze replied.
Ye Wenhan nodded and said, “That’s right, if it weren’t for the fact that they know that you may limit Gupi, the few grand monarchs of the Outsiders wouldn’t hurry to attack the Domain of Heaven Python first. The Ancient Fragmentary Star Palace and the Five Elements Sect are actually better choices. For the outsiders, it’s more inspiring to defeat either of them than to win in the Domain of Heaven Python.”
“That’s right,” Nie Tian agreed.
Everyone waited in silence. Since Ji Yuanquan could tear a rift open in space, they weren’t very worried.
A few hours went by.
A gorgeous spatial rift quietly tore open behind Ji Yuanquan.
His eyes lit up. He couldn’t mask his elation as he exclaimed, “Miss Pei!”
Like a holy blue lotus, a young woman in a blue dress came out of the spatial rift, looking calm and composed.
Fan Tianze took a close look at her, then exclaimed, “The Late Void domain! Qu Yi really has an eye for talent. The Void Spirit Society may reach new heights because of you!”
After the other God domain experts released their soul awareness to examine her carefully, they were also shocked.
Pei Qiqi had indeed reached the late Void domain!
She had progressed faster than Nie Tian in terms of cultivation. Furthermore, it seemed that her bloodline had also improved very quickly, as her aura was now ethereal and unpredictable.
She was obviously standing in front of them, but the people present felt that she seemed to be in another unknown time and space.
Ji Yuanquan beamed and said, “I bet your Space Boundaries Crystal has grown even stronger! Why are you out of secluded cultivation? In fact, you weren’t away for very long this time.”
Since the day Qu Yi had taken Pei Qiqi to the Realm of Void Spirit, Ji Yuanquan had shown his intention to support and assist her.
He had long seen that the future of the Void Spirit Society lay with Pei Qiqi.
Compared to her, the others weren’t worth mentioning.
Hong Minghui, who Xuan Guangyu had been speaking highly of, didn’t have a chance at surpassing her in talent, potential, or character.
“Long cultivation alone is not going to help me grow.” Pei Qiqi replied casually. Her clear, bright eyes were glued to Nie Tian.
She nodded slightly, but didn’t speak to him.
However, judging from her expression, everyone knew that almost everyone else had been subconsciously ignored by her eyes.
The only person she truly cared about was Nie Tian.
“I’m glad you came.” Nie Tian grinned. With his bloodline power, he vaguely sensed that Pei Qiqi’s space bloodline was also at the eighth grade.
It was just that her space bloodline was always fluctuating. It seemed she had already accumulated enough strength, and was ready to break through to the ninth grade.
In this way, Pei Qiqi was one step ahead of him in both cultivation and bloodline.
Pei Qiqi responded to him with a determined look.
The meaning of that look was: With me around, you will be safe.
She was proficient in space power, her cultivation base had improved rapidly and her bloodline had rocketed. Plus with the help of her treasure, the Space Boundaries Crystal, even if Nie Tian met Gupi, as long as he was not killed by its first strike, she had the confidence to take him to safety.
After a while, shimmering starlight suddenly emerged and turned into a starry cloud in the dim, distant starry river where Nie Tian looked from time to time.
Wang Meijia took a deep breath and said with a mixed tone, “Vice Sectmaster Luo’s All Manifestations Star Banner! That’s right. The All Manifestations Star Banner is coming. I suppose Vice Sectmaster Luo will follow. The immortal grade divine tool is connected with his life, so he would never give it up.”
“Here he comes.” Fan Tianze snorted. “He’s in collusion with the Phantasms indeed! I can sense Grand Monarch Dark Nether now!”
