The Cloud Chasing Heaven Swallowing Sparrow pierced through space rapidly.
“Long Chen, where are we going?” asked Meng Qi.
“Just go straight toward the eastern sea. Meng Qi, it’ll be hard on you, but maintain your spiritual senses. If you sense any powerful auras, immediately avoid them.” Long Chen’s expression was grave.
“What is the matter?” asked Mo Nian.
“Have you forgotten? The main conspirators behind this scheme are Pill Valley and Heavenly Fate Island. Considering their characters, how could they let us run? We’ll definitely run into obstructions on our way, so everyone should be prepared,” said Long Chen.
“Fuck, no way! I just started being a good person, and I’m getting hunted down for it? I was able to get around when it was just me, but as soon as I go with you, I end up like this!” cursed Mo Nian.
He thought about how free he had been by himself. Now that he was fighting for the Martial Heaven Alliance, the Martial Heaven Alliance actually couldn’t protect him.
Long Chen smiled. “Don’t be resentful. As my brother, if I don’t con you, who else am I going to con?”
“Ah, that’s true.” Hearing this, the curious thing was that Mo Nian actually smiled. “But there’s one thing I don’t understand. Why aren’t you angry?”
“Why would I be angry? I’m grateful for what I have. I’m a disciple of the Xuantian Dao Sect. Without the Xuantian Dao Sect, I wouldn’t have my current achievements. The Heaven Splitting Battle Sect is also my sect, and without the old man’s care, I might have long since died. Qu Jianying is the old man’s partner, and she cares so much about me she is willing to become enemies with the various powers of the world. In truth, although this war had been brewing for a long time thanks to certain people’s schemes, if it weren’t for me, senior Qu Jianying wouldn’t be forced into such a passive position. As men, if we dare to cause trouble, we have to accept the consequences. We can’t retreat from this, nor can we blame god or others-” said Long Chen righteously.
“Stop, stop! If you keep talking, I’ll look like a petty little person who forgets favors in comparison. I admit that you’re right, okay?” Mo Nian waved his hand in front of Long Chen. In terms of eloquence, he couldn’t compare to Long Chen. His conning ability was truly spectacular.
Suddenly, Cloud’s body turned. Everyone shook, almost falling.
“It’s as you said, Long Chen. There are experts trying to block us. I had Cloud avoid them,” said Meng Qi who was standing atop Cloud’s head, her expression grave.
“What level are they?” asked Mo Nian.
“I’m not sure. As soon as I sensed them, I had Cloud avoid them.”
“Without thinking about it, since they were sent to stop us, they have to be Netherpassage experts,” said Long Chen.
Suddenly, Cloud began turning rapidly through the air. Meng Qi’s expression changed.
“Not good. The path ahead has been fully blocked. There’s three people ahead, and we have to charge past one of them.”
“You pick one,” said Long Chen.
“Curious. How did they know where we’d run?” asked Mo Nian.
“You’re underestimating Heavenly Fate Island too much. For their island master to even personally come out, even if we have divine items protecting us, they should still be able to read some slight clues. If they didn’t have that little bit of power, Heavenly Fate Island wouldn’t have achieved their current position with just scams,” said Long Chen. “Zhiqiu, Mo Nian, Zifeng, come to the front. Prepare your attacks. Whether or not we can charge past is dependent on this strike.”
Although Chu Yao, Liu Ruyan, and the others were also very powerful, they weren’t sharp enough. If too many people attacked at once, the Heavenly Dao energy in the surrounding space would become sparse.
Long Chen and Yue Zifeng weren’t Empyreans, and just Ye Zhiqiu and Mo Nian were enough. Any more and it would affect their attack power.
“Cloud, slow down and prepare yourself.”
Long Chen took a deep breath. He raised his hand, and a black flame lotus began to condense in his hand. Following that, sacred chanting began to resound through the air.
The entire world felt like it had been ignited. Endless flame energy gathered into the flame lotus.
The flame lotus had nine petals, and each petal had a black sphere form at the top. As more flame energy was absorbed, runes began to light up along the petals, sending the flame energy to the spheres at the top of the petals.
A terrifying aura slowly rose, growing stronger and stronger. The flame lotus also grew until it was gigantic.
“World Annihilation Flame Lotus!”
Long Chen suddenly flung the flame lotus through the air.
Once he threw it out, Cloud sped up to follow it. The two of them charged through the air.
Sacred chanting continued to resound through the air, and the flame lotus only grew larger.
Just a moment later, they saw a giant net of twisting black and white energy. At the center of the net was an elder sitting in meditation.
He had actually used his life and death energy to lock this space down. There were also Netherpassage experts to his distant left and right to make sure that no one could get past.
When he sensed the flame lotus, the elder’s eyes popped open. With a snort, a blade appeared in his hand. Divine light flashed.
The nine black spheres on the top of the lotus exploded. A terrifying explosion erupted.
The elder’s arm shook. He was surprised that this flame lotus possessed such explosive power. He was actually knocked back a few steps, and the net behind him trembled.
At the same time, Long Chen, Ye Zhiqiu, Mo Nian, and Yue Zifeng attacked. Two rays of Sword Qi, a saber-image, and an arrow shot out.
“Not good!” This strike was perfectly timed with the flame lotus. Hence, the elder had no chance to recollect himself. His blade rumbled and divine runes flew out.
His hasty block didn’t even have half his true power. He was knocked back, and he coughed up a mouthful of blood. It had to be known that this combined strike from Long Chen, Mo Nian, Ye Zhiqiu, and Yue Zifeng was something that even a Netherpassage expert couldn’t take lightly, let alone receive with just half their power.
However, a Netherpassage expert was still powerful. Although he had been injured, the net behind him didn’t break.
“Cloud!” shouted Long Chen.
Runes suddenly appeared in Cloud’s eyes. Two rays of light shot out, striking his net.
“Hmph, you think you can break my domain?! Keep dreaming!” The elder was shocked and enraged. To be injured by Soul Transformation disciples was an insult.
Although this injury was nothing to him, it still infuriated him. Seeing Cloud attack his net, which was a condensation of his life and death domain, he snorted. His blade slashed down.
However, unexpectedly, when Cloud’s attack landed, it formed a ripple that spread to form a giant black hole. Cloud’s body entered the ripple and then vanished.
The elder’s blade landed on thin air. His life and death domain was still present, but Long Chen and the others had already vanished.
“But… how is that possible?” The elder was dumbfounded. He suddenly thought of a kind of divine ability that the Cloud Chasing Heaven Swallowing Sparrow possessed that could ignore spatial bindings: the Heaven Swallowing Voidbreaker.
However, the Heaven Swallowing Voidbreaker divine ability could only be used by descendants that possessed extremely pure bloodlines. Furthermore, they had to have advanced to the eleventh rank first. These two requirements were a must, and yet Cloud had done it at just the tenth rank.
“Damnit, they got away.”
At this moment, the two other Netherpassage experts rushed over. The plan had been for the three of them to cooperate. Together, Long Chen and the others stood no chance.
However, this flawless plan had actually met with failure. Looking at the direction Long Chen had gone, they didn’t know what to do.
“Do we chase?”
“That’s no good. The Cloud Chasing Heaven Swallowing Sparrow’s speed is number one in the world. Even the Golden Peng race has to concede defeat in that regard, so there’s no way we can catch up. Hurry and report what happened here. Have the higher-ups think of something,” said the injured Netherpassage expert. Sighing, he had no choice but to admit that he had been too careless.
“Hahaha, success!” Mo Nian laughed. The others sighed, relaxing.
“Long Chen, what is it?” Meng Qi saw that Long Chen wasn’t smiling.
“I keep feeling like something’s wrong.” Long Chen shook his head. Li Tianxuan had told him that no one could calculate anything about him. If others were with him, their fates were linked with his, so Heavenly Fate Island shouldn’t be able to calculate anything about Mo Nian or Ye Zhiqiu either. Therefore, they shouldn’t be able to track their location and direction so easily.
“Fuck, what is this?! Long Chen, you’ve all been expelled from the Martial Heaven Alliance!” Mo Nian suddenly took out a jade plate on his waist.
“Yes, I know. I discussed it with the Xuan Master before leaving. This is the only way to resolve the current crisis.” Long Chen nodded.
“What the fuck? Haven’t you become everyone’s target then?!” Mo Nian was speechless.
“I’m used to it. We would have left the Xuantian Dao Sect and the Martial Heaven Alliance sooner or later. Leaving now or later makes no difference,” said Long Chen. “Meng Qi, help me examine everyone spiritually. See if anyone left a spiritual mark on us.”
However, even after a couple of hours, Meng Qi shook her head. She hadn’t found anything odd, making Long Chen frown. This kind of result meant that they either weren’t tracking them this way, or whoever had done it was at such a supreme level that even Meng Qi’s Spiritual Strength was unable to expose them.
After hours of flight, Cloud had already crossed the Eastern Xuan Region and reached the Martial Heaven Sea-Ring. Cloud’s speed was truly amazing.
Suddenly, the seawater exploded. A giant sea demon charged out, trying to bite Cloud.Previous Chapter Next Chapter
