The Sledgehammer Campsite.
A completely round screen of light appeared below the sky. The screen was enshrouded by divine radiance, and it revealed the extremely horrifying scenes of a battle.
Surprisingly, it was the battle which was occurring at the Springs.
The main parties to the battle were the Time Daolord, Light Daolord, Lightning Daolord, and the around 100 Daolords of the Dao Defiant Clans who were their enemies.
However, at this moment, those Daolords of the Dao Defiant Clans had fallen apart and greatly reduced in number. Only a little over 30 of them remained.
This screen of light had been formed by the Heavenly Wrath Daolord, and only he possessed such shocking ability to accomplish this.
All the other Dao Servants were seated cross-legged below the screen of light, and they revealed all sorts of expressions on their faces while they watched the blood battle revealed on the screen of light.
Surprisingly, it wasn’t just those Dao Servants on the same side of the 1st, 2nd, 3rd, and 4th Dao Servants that were present here. Even the 6th, 7th, and 8th Dao Servant who maintained a neutral attitude and the 5th, 11th, and 13th Dao Servants who were opposed to working together with the Sovereign Sect were present here!
In other words, besides those 3 Dao Servants who were in battle at the Springs and the 1st Dao Servant who remained within the palace of this campsite, all the other Dao Servants were actually gathered here!
This was something that the Heavenly Wrath Daolord had done as well. Because only an existence like him could make the other Dao Servants converge here.
At this moment, as they watched the bloody battle that was displayed on the screen of light, those Dao Servants who supported the cooperation with the Sovereign Sect revealed gratified and complacent expressions.
On the other hand, those 3 Dao Servants who were opposed to the cooperation with the Sovereign Sect revealed gloomy expressions while their gazes changed indeterminately. At this moment, they finally understood that the 1st Dao Servant and the others hadn’t just cooperated with the Sovereign Sect to kill the Savior, they wanted to use the Savior as bait to draw out the first ancestor of the Dao Defiants in order to seize the Spirit of Samsara!
In an instant, the 5th Dao Servant, the Dark Purgatory Daolord, the 11th Dao Servant, the Void Daolord, and the 13th Dao Servant, the Battle Spirit Daolord, couldn’t help but feel a sense of loss.
At this moment, it was clearly too late to stop all of this!
On the other hand, the 6th Dao Servant, the Five Element Daolord, the 7th Dao Servant, the Bramble Daolord, and the 8th Dao Servant, the Blood Abyss Daolord, who’d maintained neutral stances remained silent.
Even though they didn’t support or oppose the cooperation with the Sovereign Sect, those scenes of the battle displayed on the screen of light was sufficient for them to determine that the situation was beyond hopeless for the Dao Defiants. Even if the 5th Dao Servant and the others intended to act and disrupt all of it, it would still be too late.
A wisp of complicated emotions couldn’t help but arise in their hearts because of this. Why exactly have the 1st Dao Servant and the others… cooperated with the Sovereign Sect?
Could it be that it’s merely for the sake of seizing the Spirit of Samsara from the first ancestor of the Dao Defiants?
Meanwhile, the Heavenly Wrath Daolord’s aged and low voice suddenly resounded. “Everyone, I didn’t just summon all of you here today to prove whose choice was the right one.”
The 1st Dao Servant sighed with emotion. “I just wanted to tell all of you that we 13 Dao Servants were born in accordance with the will of the Heaven Dao, and we exist to protect the Heaven Dao. Throughout the countless years that we’ve resided on Godrank Mountain, there has never been conflict between us 13 Dao Servants, and I hope that it never happens.”
As soon as these words were spoken, those Dao Servants who supported the cooperation with the Sovereign Sect spoke out in agreement.
The 3 Dao Servants who maintained a neutral stance remained silent.
Only the expressions of those 3 Dao Servants who were opposed to the cooperation with the Sovereign Sect had changed slightly indeterminately.
In the end, the Five Element Daolord wasn’t able to restrain himself and said in a low voice, “Heavenly Wrath, I agree with your words, but I don’t agree with your actions. You should be clearly aware that the Sovereign Sect’s Master is a fellow who would stop at nothing in order to fulfil his objectives. So cooperating with them is undoubtedly like holding a candle to the devil!”
The Heavenly Wrath Daolord sighed and said, “The Heaven Dao has undergone an unexpected change and a calamity has swept through the world. No one is able to stop this calamity. Even our Godrank Mountain can’t stay aloof and avoid being involved in the calamity. We’ve only done all of this to go along with the will of the Heaven Dao.”
The Five Element Daolord spoke coldly. “Then tell me why you intend to seize the Spirit of Samsara? Do you know that the Spirit of Samsara itself is a taboo, and its existence isn’t tolerated by the Heaven Dao! Your actions are simply no different than going against the Heaven Dao, yet you lie about going along with the will of the Heaven Dao. What lies!”
The Heavenly Wrath Daolord fell silent for a long while. He seemed like he couldn’t be bothered to continue arguing, and he just said in the end, “The battle is about to come to an end, so just watch calmly.”
The Five Element Daolord grunted coldly and didn’t speak further.
However, right at this moment, many Dao Servants exclaimed lightly. Numerous nine colored divine lotuses had suddenly appeared on the screen of light, and they descended from the heavens and filled the Springs.
The dazzling and blazing glow that it emanated, and the otherworldly and divine aura which effused out from it caused the hearts of all the Dao Servants to shake. Is the first ancestor of the Dao Defiants finally unable to help but step forward?
Right at this moment, the entire screen of light shook violently, and then it rumbled as it transformed into a rain of light that vanished into the surroundings.
At the same time, the 1st Dao Servant exclaimed with surprise as he seemed to have never imagined that something unexpected like this would have occurred.
This made the other Dao Servants feel quite surprised and bewildered. Because the screen of light had been formed by the will of the 1st Dao Servant, yet it had suddenly exploded into pieces and couldn’t be condensed into form again. Could all of this have been caused by those nine colored divine lotuses that appeared abruptly?
“There has been a change in the situation. My will is temporarily unable to detect the situation within the Springs anymore.” The 1st Dao Servant spoke again. “However, in my opinion, nothing unexpected will happen even if Light, Time, and Lightning were to face the first ancestor of the Dao Defiants head-on. In the end, that first ancestor of the Dao Defiants is only a strand of consciousness, and her body has been destroyed in the Dao Terra Firma.”
Even though the other Dao Servants felt that this analysis made sense, they still felt a trace of surprise and bewilderment that couldn’t be eliminated.
The first ancestor of the Dao Defiants… is no ordinary figure. Even if it’s only a strand of consciousness, how could it possibly be crushed with ease?After all, if it was possible to accomplish that with ease, then they would have made a move and eliminated her countless years ago, and they wouldn’t have had to wait until now.
There probably will be some variables and changes to the situation!
Numerous nine colored divine lotuses filled the world while a gorgeous and dream-like glow emanated a divine and dignified aura as it illuminated the Springs with dazzling and resplendent light.
The atmosphere here was tranquil and solemn.
Regardless of whether it was the Dao Defiants or the 3 Dao Servants, all of them had simultaneously stopped fighting and seemed to be waiting for something.
It wasn’t long before a wave of footsteps resounded amidst the perfectly silent and solemn atmosphere here. It was indistinct, light, and seemed like it was coming from time immemorial, and it was impossible for them to locate the source of it.
But in just an instant, all of them felt like something had flashed before their eyes, and then a figure had silently appeared at the center of the myriad of nine colored lotus flowers below the sky.
His figure was tall, and it was enshrouded with seething strands of obscure and strange fluctuations, causing him to seem to possess an unreal aura.
The multicolored divine lotuses resided all around him while emanating a divine aura, causing him to possess a supreme, dignified, and oppressive aura!
The Dao Defiants were quite stunned upon laying eyes on this figure. They were stupefied. On the other hand, the eyes of the 3 Dao Servants had narrowed, and they felt a little surprised as well.
That was actually not the first ancestor of the Dao Defiants!
That was the first reason why they were surprised.
That figure actually seemed to belong to… that Savior?
That was the second reason why they were shocked.
The Savior’s aura was so mighty that they were able to discern that he’d actually stepped foot into the Daolord Realm!
That was the third reason.
After a short moment of silence, the oppressive atmosphere which had suffused the surroundings for a long time had finally erupted. Many Dao Defiants couldn’t help but exclaim with shock while their expressions changed indeterminately.
They’d thought that since nine colored divine lotuses had descended from the heavens, then it was definitely their first ancestor who had been unable to bear the sight of the calamity they were suffering and had decided to save them.
How could they have imagined that it wouldn’t be their first ancestor but that Savior instead!?
How could they not feel shocked by this development?
After that, boundless rage, frustration, unwillingness, and despair surged into their hearts. Because the Savior had killed over 10 Daolords from their clans, and he was cruel and ruthless. Not, he’d even survived the place that their first ancestor slumbered at!
It was even to the extent that he’d broken through into the Daolord Realm!
Coupled with those 3 Dao Servants who were still eying them with hostility, such a scene was simply like being between a rock and a hard place, and the situation they were in grew even more worrying.
So, how could all of them not feel despair?
Even those Daolords had finally understood that the phenomenon of the heavens and the earth which had appeared at the depths of the Springs hadn’t been caused by their first ancestor, and it was caused by the Savior when he broke through and advanced into the Daolord Realm!
For a time, all of them were shocked and infuriated as well while their hearts burned with anxiety. Because the situation had grown even more dangerous and pressing. Could it be that we Divine Children are really going to be annihilated today?
At the same time, the hearts of the Time, Light, and Lightning Daolords weren’t calm at all. They’d similarly thought that it was the first ancestor of the Dao Defiant. So, they’d accumulated strength in response to it, and they’d intended to seize this opportunity to kill the first ancestor of the Dao Defiants at one go and seize the Spirit of Samsara.
How could they have expected that it would actually be that Savior who appeared before them!
They couldn’t help but feel slightly disappointed when faced with this reality, and then they felt slightly infuriated. Damnable Savior! You just had to show yourself at such a moment, and you even tried to be deliberately mystifying by making nine colored divine lotuses descend from the heavens! You simply deserve death for affecting the progress of our battle!
Only Chi Qingying had a different opinion amongst everyone in the surroundings.
Just a moment ago, he’d almost been drowned within the river of time and lost his life. He was just about to detonate himself and destroy his enemies along with himself, but he hadn’t expected that he’d been saved at that critical moment. He’d thought that it was his first ancestor who’d saved him, and he was feeling extremely grateful. But never had he expected that it would actually be this fellow, Chen Xi, who’d saved him!
Why would an enemy of ours… save me?
Besides feeling bewildered, Chi Qingying’s intuition told him that Chen Xi’s arrival here seemed to not be as bad as the other Daolords thought….
