“Impudence! Are you all trying to rebel?” Gong Yichen huffed.
But his words were quickly drowned out by the attacks.
Gu Lingzhi drew out her Fengwu Sword and exchanged glances with the people from the Gui Yuan Clan. She charged towards Pan Luo.
An opportunity bestowed by heaven!
If Pan Luo had stayed permanently in the Deity King’s Palace, they would not have been able to do anything to him. Even if the Gui Yuan Clan had set a trap and waited for him to fall for it, they would only have a fifty percent chance of success.
But who knew what made Pan Luo think of something like this?
Not only did he leave his iron-walled Deity King’s Palace, he had angered everyone that entered the Secret Territory, making everyone rebel and desert him. If they didn’t grasp this golden opportunity, what revenge would they speak of?
“Ah—impudence! Do you all know who I am?” Suddenly getting attacked by ten people, Pan Luo growled.
“Aren’t you all going to quickly help me open the exit? I will spare you all from death, seeing how you all don’t know who I am!”
Gu Lingzhi raised her Fengwu Sword and pointed it at his chest, growling menacingly, “If you surrender right now, I will let you die fast and quick!”
“You don’t know your place!” Pan Luo choked out. Sensing the murderous aura from the Gui Yuan Clan, he gave up persuading them and retrieved a tiny elaborate goblet.
As the small goblet was exposed to the wind, in a single breath, it had transformed to a goblet that was as big as a house.
An enormous amount of pull could be felt from the bottom of the goblet as Gu Lingzhi staggered slightly. She fell into the huge goblet, unable to help herself.
“Lingzhi!” Rong Yuan shouted anxiously and gave up his attack on Pan Luo as he turned to pull Gu Lingzhi.
Having beaten two of his opponents that could actually hurt him, there was a murderous look in Pan Luo’s eyes as he suddenly disappeared from where he was standing. When he reappeared, he was by Qin Xinran’s side.
The gold spiritual energy concentrated in his palm turned into a knife as he aimed directly at Qin Xinran’s chest. He wanted to reduce the pressure on himself before Gu Lingzhi and Rong Yuan returned.
“Xinran!” When Gu Lingzhi had been rescued by Rong Yuan, the first sight she saw was the sight of Qin Xinran’s stomach getting pierced. It was too late for her to try and rescue Qin Xinran.
Qin Xinran gritted her teeth as she knew she would not be able to dodge this attack and gave up avoiding as she sacrificed the Luotian Rod that Gu Lingzhi had personally made for her. In a flash, she activated the three hidden powers of the Luotian Rod and brazenly went head to head with Pan Luo’s attack.
Even if she was going to die, she would rip a bite out of Pan Luo first!
The three hidden powers of the Luotian Rod clashed against Pan Luo’s palm, causing a flurry of strong spiritual energy.
In this flurry, Qin Xinran’s body was like a kite that had been its strings cut as she flew backwards. Gu Lingzhi who was rushing towards her quickly grabbed her and stuffed a Spiritual Medicine in her mouth, throwing her into her Inheritance Space.
“Inheritance Space?” Pan Luo’s pupils narrowed as the few things that he could not understand previously suddenly became clear.
It is no wonder that Gu Lingzhi had such a special way of crafting weapons, he could only blame himself for trusting too easily. He had believed that the people from the Spirit Tribe would be living in fear, like rats in the Realm of the Gods and would never have the guts to appear so outrightly in front of him.
However, Gu Lingzhi had done the exact opposite and found the gap in his thinking. But that was all history, since they dared to appear in front of him, then they must die!
“Since you are here, then you should die along with your tribe.” Pan Luo declared sinisterly. Giving up attacking others, his spiritual energy surged as he forced it towards Gu Lingzhi.
“The one who will die is you!” Gu Lingzhi shouted. Her Fengwu Sword did not hold back as she confronted him. This was the first time that she was exposing the full strength of her Fengwu sword in front of others. The five spiritual energies that it contained shot out and formed a beautiful rainbow in the sky. It clashed with Pan Luo’s attack.
Rong Yuan ordered the rest of the Gui Yuan Clan members to help the attack against the Tianyan Clan. He then flew and met with Gu Lingzhi in midair, fighting alongside Gu Lingzhi. However, even so, their strength was somewhat lacking.
Nie Sang wanted to join Gu Lingzhi and fight as a trio, but the difference between an upper-class True God and a middle-class True God was too big. He had to be careful with just dealing with the spiritual energy that was emitted from their clash. What more if he joined the battle?
Nie Sang’s eyes brushed across the people around him quickly as his gaze landed near the exit. There were four True Gods that did not participate in the fight. He could sense that the power from these four people were similar to Gu Lingzhi and Rong Yuan.
“Elders, please work with me to kill Pan Luo, that snob!” Nie Sang said to the four of them.
Lu Yutao looked at Nie Sang as his lips moved slightly and a difficult expression appeared on his face.
In this journey in the Secret Territory, he was the only one left from his clan. In this kind of circumstance, he should be working with the people from the Gui Yuan Clan to defeat their enemies and deal with Pan Luo.
But he was scared…
That was the Deity King, the Deity King of the entire Realm of the Gods. He had existed as an upper-class True God since ancient times. No one knew how powerful he was. Going against him was as good as asking for death.
He did not dare to attack him.
The other three more or less had the same thoughts.
Just by looking at Lu Yutao’s expression, Nie Sang knew what he was thinking and silently cursed them for lacking the guts. Anxiously he said, “Do you think that after this conspiracy has been exposed, Pan Luo will still let you live? If he can conspire against you once, he can do it again. He is an evil person that will do anything and everything to achieve his goal. Do you really think he will let you live?”
Lu Yutao’s expression changed as he was slightly convinced.
It was true. In front of everyone, Pan Luo had always shown his generous side and how he loved his citizens. Now that his sinister side had been exposed, would he really let them leave?
Just as Lu Yutao was convinced by him and was about to take action, Pan Luo suddenly declared, “I promise that, with the exception of Gui Yuan Clan, as long as you give up your rebellion and help me open the exit, I will forgive and forget.”
With this, Lu Yutao changed his mind once again and looked apologetically at Nie Sang.
At this moment, Rong Yuan’s voice sounded after Pan Luo, “What a joke. You are so cruel that you would even murder your teacher that brought you up and even massacred his entire tribe that was faithful and devoted to you. How much is your promise even worth? After today, all the clans that were almost as powerful as the Tianyan Clan will suffer severe damage. You may be able to forgive and forget but all your lackeys wouldn’t be able to sit still. Pan Luo, your method of lying is too cheap.”
Gu Lingzhi called out almost immediately after, “Yan Liang, tell them what you found out!”
“Coming!” Yan Liang finally managed to breathe a sigh of relief. Because of the sudden rebellion and how he had been highly regarded in the Tianyan Clan, the alliance along with the Gui Yuan Clan had suddenly launched an attack on him. He appeared in front of the four men, with a stack of paper in his hands.
These papers were the original copies that he had handed over to Gu Lingzhi.
As upper-class True Gods, they read extremely quickly and Lu Yutao merely used a few breaths to read all the information written down. Disbelief filled his eyes.
The contents on the papers had completely flipped their image of Pan Luo in their hearts. If this Secret Territory was another plan of Pan Luo’s and they were dragged into it then along with the information, he had completely treated everyone as his toys. If things went along with his wish, they would all perish under him.
With each piece of paper as evidence, he had no choice but to believe it.
“Everyone, maybe it is time that the Realm of the Gods changes our Deity King.” Lu Yutao declared.
The three others beside him had also finished reading the material and silently retrieved their individual weapons.
This was not a matter of their individual survival, they had no choice but to fight. Pan Luo’s misdeeds were too notorious and they were no longer able to believe any of his promises. The only things they could believe in were the weapons in their hands!
Having made their decision, the four of them did not hesitate anymore as they flew towards the fight.
Gu Lingzhi and Rong Yuan, who were about to be unable to handle Pan Luo’s attacks any longer, lit up as they saw hope for victory.
It was no wonder Pan Luo was the oldest upper-class True God in the entire Realm of the Gods. No other upper-class True God could be compared to him. His attacks were innumerable and he had inflicted severe hardship upon Gu Lingzhi and Rong Yuan. There were multiple times when they had narrowly dodged his fatal attacks. With the addition of four more True Gods, the pressure was slightly lifted. But they did not dare to slack off as they continued their attack.
Facing the attacks of six upper-class True Gods, Pan Luo was also slightly flustered. However, with his supreme powers, he was confident that he would not lose even with six of the same rank True Gods attacking him.
But this advantage was diminished when Elder Leng Shuang and the others had finished dealing with the people from the Tianyan Clan and came to join Gu Lingzhi and the rest.
Now, facing the attacks of over ten upper-class True Gods, Pan Luo finally looked like he might be defeated. He did not manage to dodge one of the attacks in time and was hit by a rod, creating a dent in his collarbone.
“Oh…you all can actually hurt me?” Pan Luo was in disbelief as he touched his injury. The warm blood on his fingertips told him that this was not his imagination but it was real.
He, the Deity King Pan Luo, who had been the Deity King for so many years, was actually injured by people he viewed as insects!
He could only blame himself for this.
If he had left the tournament to be conducted as it had the past few times, even if he fell into the trap that Gui Yuan Clan had set for him, he still had a fifty percent chance of success.
But he had chosen to change the rules this time and sent everyone into this so-called Secret Territory, allowing Gu Lingzhi and her clan to buy over other people. Because of this, a lot of the people that he had planned to kill here had also survived as a result. They had now ganged up, creating the scene in front of him.
“You all are ants! I will make you regret this!”
Suffering another hit, Pan Luo bellowed as he spat out fresh blood. He quickly made an imprint with both of his hands.
When the imprint was created, a strong surge of spiritual energy spread across the entire Secret Territory. A portion of it came from everyone present.
“What is going on?”
Following the exclamations, badges floated out of everyone’s Storage Ring and towards Pan Luo…Previous Chapter Next Chapter
