“Who would’ve thought that we would spend all day hunting geese, capture one, and then be blinded by it?”
Both Mu Renwang and Su Xin were absolutely furious, yet they had no way to vent their anger.
Mu Renwang suddenly slapped Mu Yexi on the side of the face.
She looked back at him, stunned, as her face turned red and swelled up. She was the beautiful and famous junior empress, who had never been hit by another person in her life. To be slapped by her father was almost too much for her to take.
“What are you doing, Mu Renwang!?” Su Xin shouted angrily. “You’re so useless you couldn't do anything about that brat, so you take it out on your daughter? How could she have seen what he really was? He stole those eighteen godpower seeds right out from under our noses! He fooled us! What could our daughter possibly have done?”
Mu Renwang snorted angrily. “If she hadn’t tried to recruit him, he would never have had a chance to do all this. We could’ve killed him early on, but instead we've been completely screwed over. What are we supposed to do now? It’s no loss of face for us to be unable to deal with Bastard Seacliff, who’s backed by the vastly powerful House of God Bastards, but this brat Yang Qi is a nobody! If word gets out that he tricked us, how will we maintain our reputation?”
“I'm actually not worried,” Su Xin said, reaching out to hug her daughter. “The Genesis Sanctum has been screwed over even more than us. The kid is cunning, strong, and actually has the Myriad Worlds Monarch Chart to hide in whenever he wants. He fooled us all. Right now, the most pressing matter at hand is how to destroy the Will Manifestation Heaven Sect. I still think the best thing to do is to make sure the Genesis Sanctum and House of God Bastards try to take Yang Qi out.”
At this point, Mu Renwang was finally starting to calm down. “For now, we need to let the brat and his sect stick around. He’ll definitely end up getting killed when he tries to take on the Genesis Sanctum.”
“Mother, Father, it won’t be hard to wipe out the Will Manifestation Heaven Sect. But first, we have to figure out how to deal with that purrling. As long as they have that thing, we won’t be able to touch them. What's worse, Yang Qi has figured out how to replicate some of the beast’s abilities. For now, I think we have to put on a false face and use Yang Qi to deal with the Genesis Sanctum, the House of God Bastards, and whatever other powerful enemies are out there.
“Father, you were right to scold me. I didn’t take the proper precautions to deal with his treachery. I thought he was little more than a turtle in a jar, and thus let my guard down. How could I have ever guessed that his cultivation base would be so strong? Right now, I need to atone for my crime by carrying out good deeds. I’ll do my best to convince Yang Qi of my ‘good intentions’, and hopefully get him back on our side.”
“Excellent,” Mu Renwang said. It looked like he wasn’t angry at all anymore. “Considering what you’re capable of, I'm sure you’ll be able to pull it off handsomely. Lure the kid to our side again, then get him into a life-or-death conflict with the Genesis Sanctum. Then, when he's finally the league-lord, he’ll absolutely have to rely on our support.”
“You should also spend some time with the people from the Will Manifestation Heaven Sect, Daughter,” Su Xin said. “See if you can find out what exactly that purrling is, and where it's from.”
Nodding, Mu Yexi left.
After she was gone, Su Xin snorted coldly. “If you ever lay a hand on our daughter again, Mu Renwang, I’m going to make you very sorry.”
“I know,” Mu Renwang said. “I was just angry in the heat of the moment. Just think of all the work and effort it took to kill those eighteen Inheritors. Then we worked so hard to cleanse the misfortune from the godpower seeds, returning them to their original state. We did all the work, but he gained all the benefits; how could we possibly just accept such humiliation?”
“You’re right. Dammit!” Su Xin was just as angry, so much so that she felt like rushing out and killing Yang Qi right then and there.
“Well, it won’t be easy for him to assimilate all of those seeds. I refuse to believe that he's that strong. There’s no way he could handle all of them without exploding!” Unfortunately, no matter how much the two of them cursed, they didn’t have any other options at hand. They knew that only gods could forcibly break into the Myriad Worlds Monarch Chart, so with that chart, Yang Qi could never really be hurt.
Meanwhile, Yang Qi appeared within the Myriad Worlds Monarch Chart. Stone clouds hovered above his head, and his pores emitted what seemed like the quintessence of stone itself. The forces being unleashed were so immense that it seemed like it would be impossible for him to avoid being petrified. Even some of the Myriad Worlds Monarch Chart around him was being turned to stone.
The immortal-slaying clone opened his eyes from where he sat cross-legged, and quickly called on the godhood stars above. With that godpower, he managed to heal Yang Qi and repair the chart.
‘So he did it,’ he thought, smiling wryly. ‘That was a pretty dangerous situation, and he almost got killed. Two mid Terrifying opponents? Not even I could handle opponents like that. I hope he benefited a lot. I wonder how far his enlightenment went. Eighteen godpower seeds is an immense amount of power, definitely enough to petrify even a mid Terrifying expert. In fact, that's why Mu Renwang and Su Xin didn’t dare to use them. Yang Qi will either succeed, or die. I can only have faith that he’ll pull it off.’
He didn’t offer any help. In this situation, Yang Qi had to seize victory on his own.
Power continued erupting out of Yang Qi, causing the entire area around him to turn into a kingdom of stone. The Myriad Worlds Monarch Chart was able to halt the spread, but it was obvious now that if the Great Necropolis unleashed all of its power, it would definitely be able to damage the chart. After all, if a few little seeds could do this much harm, how much could the entire necropolis do?
However, the chart was powerful enough to keep this kingdom of stone at bay.
Yang Qi sat in the middle of it, looking very much like a stone statue. However, he could still move, and he even reached up to part the clouds of stone overhead, which went to show the immense willpower and perseverance he was maintaining.
Then he began opening channels in the kingdom of stone around him, devastating the will of the Great Necropolis and making himself as free as a dragon in the sea or a phoenix flying in the sky.
He threw his head back and howled, shaking the three realms and the six daos. Countless streams of energy erupted from him, along with three massive beams of godlight.
A huge boulder was shaken loose and flew toward the immortal-slaying clone, who immediately unleashed a palm strike to stop it.
However, when his palm hit the stone, nothing happened except for a few cracks snaking out on its surface. Furthermore, energy flowed from the rock to surround the clone, who immediately began petrifying.
The clone quickly fell back with an astonished expression. His palm had been unable to break a mere rock? How strong was that rock? How could it possibly be strong enough to threaten to petrify him? Quickly drawing on the imperial-heaven pre-beginning systems of the Engine of the One God, he used them to attack the rock, which began to evaporate.
Yang Qi looked like the King of Godmammoths as he sent chunks of stone flying in every direction as the kingdom around him was devastated. At this point, the immortal-slaying clone checked Yang Qi’s psychic scale.
As expected, it was rising with explosive speed.
From thirty-five, it went to forty, then fifty. Sixty. Seventy. Eighty. Ninety. Only then did it begin to slow. Of course, that represented a heaven-shaking, earth-toppling transformation for Yang Qi.
All of a sudden, a Terrifying expression of will that not even the Myriad Worlds Monarch Chart could stop shot out from the god world, heading straight toward Yang Qi’s nascent divinity. In the blink of an eye, it was in the middle of the kingdom of stone, where countless tribulations began descending like a rain of lava, quickly melting the surrounding rock.
“This is… god tribulation from beyond the heavens?!” The clone suddenly started laughing. “So, Yang Qi is really stepping into the Terrifying level! I wonder what he's going to be like. I doubt anyone will be able to get in his way. Not even mid Terrifying experts will be able to stop him! Even Bastard Seacliff will be chopped to pieces!”
Unexpectedly, Yang Qi had provoked tribulation by reaching the Terrifying level. And it was no ordinary tribulation at that, but rather god tribulation.
Yang Qi burst out laughing as powerful fluctuations rolled out from him. He waved his arms, and all of the remnants of the kingdom of stone were wiped out of existence.
A storm of power now raged around Yang Qi that could rip any Terrifying expert to shreds. The immortal-slaying clone could sense the entire Myriad Worlds Monarch Chart trembling from the psychic tempest, and could sense that Yang Qi was already strong enough to walk the Ancient Road to the Gods and step into the god world without fear of dying.Previous Chapter Next Chapter
