With the fourth of King Immortal-Slayer's legacy medallions, the immortal-slaying clone was breaking through the restraints that held him and bounding forward into the Godmyth level.
Before, the clone’s level had been tied to the level of his true self. Without his true self having reached the Godmyth level first, the clone couldn’t do so. But things had changed. Because of how unique King Immortal-Slayer had been, the immortal-slaying clone was also profoundly unique and could actually surpass his true self.
Yang Qi wasn’t surprised by this.
“Clone, you work on your tribulation here—I'm sure you’ll pass it. Afterward, head into the Heaven Beyond Heaven to further your cultivation.” With a thought, Yang Qi collected some of Chancellor Demi-Immortal’s aura and passed it to the clone. Then he turned and vanished without a trace, taking the fourth legacy medallion with him.
That medallion still had Leaf Dao-Denier’s aura on it, and it made the other two medallions which had been part of a set with it shine like torches on a moonless night. Tracking them down would be a simple thing for Yang Qi.
Besides, he now had more of the legacy medallions than anyone else in existence, thus sensing the other medallions was even easier.
He now knew for certain that Young Master Leaf had two, and that the other three were in the future, in the hands of some almighty entity. Clearly, that figure would hope to eventually travel through the passageway to the present time and try to collect the other medallions.
The Myriad Worlds Monarch Chart opened and Yang Qi entered as easily as a fish sliding through water.
It was much easier to open the chart with four medallions than three, and it was also easier to call on the power of the chart to unleash attacks.
Right now, the power he could unleash from the Myriad Worlds Monarch Chart could rival the Cannon of Civilization, which went to show the vast difference that one of the legacy medallions could make.
Meanwhile, Young Master Leaf was speeding through the void as fast as he possibly could.
Unfortunately for him, that did him little good. Even as he moved along, his two legacy medallions twitched and Yang Qi dropped out of nowhere to block his path.
“Why run, Young Master Leaf? I have four of King Immortal-Slayer's legacy medallions now, and can completely dominate you.”
“King Immortal-Slayer's legacy medallions?” Young Master Leaf replied, sounding very cool and collected. “Who are you? Are you really one of the Mechfolk?” Although he was severely injured and somewhat muddle-headed, he was still a supremely powerful individual. Furthermore, he knew that he was the kind of person who, even in his dying moment, could take the most powerful adversaries out with him.
Yang Qi knew that too, and didn’t let his guard down in the least bit.
“It’s not important who I am. What’s important is that you’ve lost to me.” Yang Qi slowly began walking forward. “You can’t escape, Young Master Leaf. Hand over those other two legacy medallions. I'm willing to negotiate here, maybe even spare your life. I know you’re a top genius, and you might even be able to help me accomplish unprecedented deeds. What do you say?”
The truth was that Yang Qi was dead set on killing Young Master Leaf. He knew what type of person he was: the kind who would never acknowledge allegiance to another. Young Master Leaf even wanted to eradicate the will of King Immortal-Slayer and eventually surpass him. People like that would never willingly work for another person, and would eventually rebel and fight any who tried to control them.
“Is that so?” Young Master Leaf said with a grim smile. “So you want me to work for you? To be used by you? You think that your plots have given you the upper hand? You think you qualify to fight me now? Let me tell you something: victory and defeat have not been decided. And in fact, I want those four medallions of yours for my own.”
As the words left his mouth, he suddenly attacked.
A thousand projections and ten thousand streams of light appeared. Within them could be seen a pitch-black palm that viciously slammed into Yang Qi’s kingdom and lunged toward the four legacy medallions.
Thud! Wham! Whiz!
Unexpectedly, the four legacy medallions suddenly lurched out of Yang Qi’s grasp.
Shocked, Yang Qi said, “Where did you get an energy art like that?!”
At the same time, he unleashed the power of the God Legion Seal to lock the medallions in place and unleashed a palm strike of his own. The Heaven-Questioning Soul-Summoning Banner appeared, wiping out the light of Young Master Leaf’s attack, who let out an astonished shriek as he staggered backward.
“You have something that surpasses King Immortal-Slayer's legacy medallions in terms of strength? You can fully suppress them, can’t you? Otherwise I would have taken them already! How could this be happening? I used the blood of King Immortal-Slayer to fuel that attack! How could you suppress it?”
“You have some of King Immortal-Slayer’s blood?” Now Yang Qi knew why the medallions had reacted the way they did. They would only respond in such a way if they were provoked by the blood of their original owner.
Yet that didn’t bother Yang Qi. Speaking in a voice that would strike fear into the heart of any enemy, he said, “Even if you have the blood of King Immortal-Slayer and all seventy-one of his brethren, Young Master Leaf, I'm still going to kill you.”
“Go ahead and try!” A drop of blood appeared behind Young Master Leaf, which spread out into a sinister projection of King Immortal-Slayer himself. It was deep red, making him seem like a blood-devil emerged from the darkest and most mysterious of hells, or a god-king from the kingdom of gods. The specter reached out a hand toward Yang Qi, clearly intent on grabbing the legacy medallions.
As the blood-colored projection reached out, Leaf Dao-Denier reached into his garment and pulled out a bottle with a god pill in it. The bottle itself was covered with numerous sealing marks, making it clear how important it was. A host of paper talismans appeared in Leaf Dao-Denier’s hand, which he used to open the bottle. Instantly, a strong medicinal aroma spread out and everything in the area went dim. As for Yang Qi, he could instantly sense a powerful deathless godliness inside the bottle.
“You’re really forcing my hand, brat,” Leaf Dao-Denier said. “I didn’t want to use this Tusita God Pill, the product of a paramount god-spirit that I found in a godrelic I explored. But you've given me no other choice. Thanks to you, I'm only going to be able to use ten percent of the full medicinal effect. But even that little bit will be enough to kill you and restore me to full strength!”
Smiling viciously, he inhaled deeply, causing the god pill to slowly rise up from the bottom of the bottle.
A resonance formed with heaven and earth. The universe twitched, and a chiliocosm of worlds rejoiced, all at the mere appearance of this god pill. There was no doubt about it; if Leaf Dao-Denier used this pill, the consequences would be too horrible to contemplate.
However, it was almost as if the god pill were so incredibly weighty that Leaf Dao-Denier was having trouble removing it from the bottle, which itself was a powerful god item.
Instead, he had to send true energy into the bottle to acquire the approval of the pill itself. And that was why he could only use some of its power.
‘My god. Leaf Dao-Denier has something like that?’ It was a serious inner blow to Yang Qi, who knew that if his opponent completely restored his cultivation base to normal, it would lead to a complete and utter defeat on his own part. That was something he absolutely, positively could not allow to happen!
“Hey, Young Master Leaf!” he cried. “You want to see what I have that can dominate King Immortal-Slayer's legacy medallions? Since you’re about to die, I’m happy to reveal the truth!”
Without any hesitation, he burned the one hundred percent bit of the Blood of the One God that he had.
The golden imp flew out into the open, blurring toward the blood-red soul projection of King Immortal-Slayer. The imp’s hands flew out and slammed into King Immortal-Slayer’s soul, which let out a miserable howl before dissipating into nothing.
‘God Legion Seal: take that god pill!’
Yang Qi spat out a mouthful of blood, which ignited as the God Legion Seal stirred into motion, sending a stream of golden light out to cover Leaf Dao-Denier.
“What?” When Leaf Dao-Denier saw the golden imp, his eyes nearly popped out of their sockets and his heart was suddenly overcome with immense terror. “The God Legion Seal! It’s that thing! Who are you? How do you have something so terrifying?”
Leaf Dao-Denier was the kind of person who generally didn’t fear anything in heaven or earth. But when the God Legion Seal appeared, he felt overwhelmed with terror.
It was a power and majesty that he couldn't possibly fight against. The Sovereign Lord existed above the legion of gods, and it was only the most pious devotion and prayer to him that could produce the God Legion Seal. Although Yang Qi only had one third of it, it was still vastly beyond anything Leaf Dao-Denier could handle. Not even being a Fortuned One would help him.
‘Time to go for broke!’ Leaf Dao-Denier thought. In a sudden burst of inspiration, he hurled the pill bottle at the God Legion Seal’s attack, then turned and became a blood-colored light that blurred off into the distance.
Worried that the pill bottle might be destroyed, Yang Qi negated the attack and grabbed it. “Got it!”
His Blood of the One God having burned away, he reigned in the God Legion Seal.
‘What a pity. My Blood of the One God has dropped far too low!’
He sighed. Unfortunately, without burning that blood and activating the God Legion Seal, he would definitely have been killed by Leaf Dao-Denier.
The only upside was that he had acquired a god pill.
Looking at the pill bottle with the Lord's Eye, he caught sight of a boundless world of gods.Previous Chapter Next Chapter
