Enveloped in intense dark power and with the Dark Aureole floating over her head, Dong Li gazed off at Nie Tian and Grand Monarch Eternal Purgatory, who were fighting in the distance.
She didn’t seem to have any interest in aiding Nie Tian in this battle anymore as she said, “I suppose it’s not hard to solve the crisis in the Mortal World now.”
“The Mortal World...” Ye Wenhan looked puzzled.
“I suppose Grand Monarch Eternal Purgatory and Grand Monarch Ash Bone were the two strongest ones of all the outsider grand monarchs gathered at the Seven Stars Realm Sea,” she explained, “Now that they’re bogged down here, I doubt the grand monarchs that are still there will be tough to defeat.”
A bolt of lightning flashed across Ji Yuanquan’s widened eyes. “So you’re saying...?”
“Senior Zhao!” Dong Li exclaimed softly.
Zhao Shanling flew to her side in the blink of an eye and asked, “What is it?”
With a smile, she said, “I think it’s about time we returned to the Seven Stars Realm Sea through the Realm of Unbounded Desolation.”
Then, she turned to Ji Yuanquan. “You don’t have to keep an airtight sealing spell on the space around our ancestral land anymore. I seriously doubt that the outsider grand monarchs in the Void World will pour endlessly into the Mortal World and the Spirit World.”
“So do we return to the Seven Stars Realm Sea now?” Zhao Shanling asked, his eyes filled with excitement.
Dong Li nodded slightly. “Yes, now!”
Overhearing their conversation, Grand Monarch Ash Bone of the Bonedrudes, who was busy handling the joint attacks of the five evil gods, suddenly flew off towards the Bonebrutes’ realms in the Spirit World, looking rather rattled.
BONG! BONG! BONG! BONG!
Strange sounds rang out from the Bell of Death, which had been knocked out of his hand, as if to help with his attempt to leave this place of trouble.
The five sinister evil gods, however, chased after him unrelentingly.
Surging Nether Qi spiraled into a storm, inside of which the evil gods released seas of negative emotions that made waves of impact on Grand Monarch Ash Bone’s soul.
Grand Monarch Ash Bone’s state of mind was no longer stable, as all he wanted at this moment was to break free and inform his clansmen in the Mortal World and the Void World of their defeat in the Spirit World.
Dong Li curled her lips and said to the others, “Look. That Bonedrude grand monarch is trying to escape. What does that mean?
“That means what we suspect is probably right, that there might not be many powerful grand monarchs from the Void World at the Seven Stars Realm Sea now. Grand Monarch Bloodlust, Grand Monarch Nether Channeler, Ophelia, and Grand Monarch Soul Breaker have perished here one after another. If we return to the Seven Stars Realm Sea now, I believe we’ll be the stronger side.
“Not to mention that the Ripper Behemoth on that floating continent will also be there to help us!”
Everyone’s eyes lit up after hearing this.
With a sigh of admiration, Ji Yuanquan from the Void Spirit Society said, “It’s hard to believe that Nie Tian actually turned the situation around by himself! Grand Monarch Eternal Purgatory and Grand Monarch Ash Bone are the two late tenth grade grand monarchs that can change the course of a battle. Now that they’re trapped here, things will be much easier.”
“That’s right,” Ye Wenhan said, full of admiration. “Nie Tian’s breakthrough to the God domain has played a crucial role!”
With a charming smile, Dong Li said, “So what are we waiting for? It’s about time the outsiders from the Void World and the Spirit World paid for the atrocities they’ve committed in the Mortal World during this period of time! Also, believe me that the three major races of the Void World can’t send an endless stream of grand monarchs into the Mortal World.
“They’re fighting a strong force in the Dead Star Sea as well. Many of their experts must be caught up in lasting battles against them.”
“Let’s return to the Mortal World!” Dou Tianchen shouted in high spirits.
“To the Seven Stars Realm Sea!” Zu Guangyao yelled. “We shall retake every single domain that the outsiders from the Spirit World and the Void World took from us!”
Greatly spirited, Zhao Shanling said, “Great! I’ll take you there!”
“You go,” Ji Yuanquan said. “I’ll stay here and keep an eye on Nie Tian.”
With Dong Li’s deployment and Zhao Shanling’s assistance, they left for the Realm of Unbounded Desolation through the teleportation portal in the Realm of Middle Continent. From there, they returned to the Domain of Forbidden Heaven.
Nie Tian threw his head back and cried out, “Sea of Illusory Stars!”
Numerous dazzling stars instantly shot out of his star domain.
They shone increasingly dazzlingly as they expanded at a shocking rate.
Within seconds, a sea of dazzling stars came to form, enveloping Grand Monarch Eternal Purgatory, who was ten thousand meters tall.
In the dazzling starlight, Grand Monarch Eternal Purgatory discovered that even his soul and flesh aura perception was undermined.
Most surprisingly, he couldn’t locate Nie Tian anymore.
All he saw and sensed with his flesh and soul aura was a boundless sea of stars, where all sorts of star formations morphed unceasingly, manifesting numerous profound magics.
Flames suddenly fell from above the illusory sea of stars like a waterfall of molten iron.
As the flames poured down on Grand Monarch Eternal Purgatory, his demonic skin and flesh were melted, as if turning into a mixture of lava and blood.
“Nie Tian!” he let out a furious roar. “Show yourself, you little bastard!”
The flames pouring down on him like a waterfall carried a unique aura that could incinerate all lives.
As mighty as he was, he suffered excruciating pain as his so-called Indestructible form burned in the raging flames. He even had to mobilize his flesh aura to heal the wounds.
Under the influence of the fierce flame power, even the Blood Purgatory Sea that had a profound connection to his bloodline started boiling violently.
As it did, Grand Monarch Eternal Purgatory’s flesh aura was consumed at an alarming rate.
A crimson divine spear suddenly shot towards him like a red bolt of lightning.
Caught off-guard, Grand Monarch Eternal Purgatory hastily twisted his waist to avoid it.
Even so, a bone-deep gash split open in the abdomen of his mountainous form.
The bone that belonged to the Rampage Behemoth was incomparably sharp, and had a strong suppressing effect on Demons like Grand Monarch Eternal Purgatory. Even though it barely caught his flesh, the flesh aura it carried inflicted great pain upon him.
Rays of purple light could be seen stitching up the nasty gash like thread and needles. Apparently, Grand Monarch Eternal Purgatory was doing everything he could to heal himself.
Nie Tian, however, had retreated to a far corner of the illusory sea of stars, and assumed his regular form.
In his regular form, he was only two meters tall. Compared to Grand Monarch Eternal Purgatory, who was ten thousand meters tall, he now seemed as tiny as a fly.
However, the unique flesh aura sea he had created around him with his life bloodline was still refining and absorbing Ophelia and Grand Monarch Nether Channeler’s residual flesh power.
While Grand Monarch Eternal Purgatory was trapped within his Sea of Illusory Stars and being repeatedly attacked by his star power, flame power and the bone from the Rampage Behemoth, he himself was recovering his strength with Ophelia and Grand Monarch Nether Channeler’s severed limbs and mangled flesh through Life Drain and Life Purification.
Drop after drop of brand new Blood Essence came to form within his heart.
Only after he had fully refined and absorbed Ophelia and Grand Monarch Nether Channeler’s residual flesh aura did he take his time to say, “Blood Essence Seething!”
As numerous drops of Blood Essence were ignited simultaneously, Nie Tian resumed his enlarged form and returned to being nine thousand meters tall in the blink of an eye.
Suddenly, he sensed the change in the other battle. Taken aback, he muttered, “Hmm? Grand Monarch Ash Bone is trying to escape now?”
As soon as he sent a wisp of his soul awareness into the Spirit Scepter, it arrived in the Realm of Middle Continent and established communication between him and Dong Li.
His eyes lit up. “You’re going to return to the Seven Stars Realm Sea? Brilliant move! If that’s the case, I’ve got to make sure that Grand Monarch Eternal Purgatory and Grand Monarch Ash Bone remain occupied! Elder Ji, please cancel the space-sealing spell. I’d like to see if other outsiders dare to come here and court death!”
