Chapter 716: Madness
Bloodshed God-Emperor and the other Rulers felt slightly appreciative towards this mysterious ‘Gu Qian Luo’. If not for him, they would not have discovered what the Ancestor Mother Religion was scheming–they would remain ignorant. But now, they understood: “The Ancestor Mother Cultivation System requires the setting up of the Ancestor Mother Altar. It will eventually transform the entire cosmos?”
“They are planning to exterminate all lifeforms of our cosmos. We have yet to take that last step to break through beyond Rulers. Thus, we would die if we were forced out of the cosmos.” Bloodshed God-Emperor, Primal Master, and the others began feeling murderous. This killing intent of theirs became denser by a hundred times.
Unknowingly, they had been forced on a path of no retreat! Everything was compelled by the Ancestor Mother Religion!
“Damn.” In the vast palace hall where that fanged Religious Leader and the others were, these Religious Leaders had a slight change of expression. They were plotting behind the backs of the cultivator, betting on the fact that the cultivators were ignorant. But now, Gu Qian Luo had blown away the fog. The cultivators would definitely fight with them to death!
“Protector Qian, we have to take control of this Primal Chaos Flying Ship no matter what it takes. We have no paths to retreat. The cultivators will definitely fight with us to death. Without the Primal Chaos Flying Ship, our chance of success is low.” The fanged Religious Leader transmitted. Having the Primal Chaos Flying Ship would boost their confidence to win the war a hundred times. Without it, their confidence would have a drastic fall.
Within the Primal Chaos Flying Ship, the group of Paragons–Xue Ying, Monarch Hex Cricket, Heavenly Emperor of Great Destruction and the rest received a transmission from Bloodshed God-Emperor: “If not for this Gu Qian Luo, we would not have known that the Ancestor Mother Religion is planning to exterminate all lives on our cosmos! This war will determine the life and death of all cultivators, including the weak mortals. This ship must absolutely not land up in the hands of the Ancestor Mother Religion!”
Xue Ying and the others looked downward at that huge sculpture.
The sculpture ‘Gu Qian Luo’ chuckled. His laughter was wicked. He leaked that bit of information to make both parties crazy. With a rich voice that reverberated around this Eden World: “Kill, kill! The weak will die. The strong will live. The final person alive will be qualified to become my aide!”
“Sir Gu Qian Luo.”
On the other side, the leader of the protectors, the golden-haired monkey said, “There are some of us including those from the Paragons who are extremely good at survival. It might be tough to kill until the last man standing.”
The sculpture Gu Qian Luo looked up at that golden-haired monkey. He grinned, “What you said make sense. I can see that the venom-tailed girl has an incredible defense. And on the cultivators’ side, that person with the green light glowing is also tough.”
“The venom-tailed girl?” Xue Ying and the others flinched momentarily before reacting.
Gu Qian Luo should be referring to one of the three Holy Protectors. Her defense was incredibly strong? Even Gu Qian Luo praised her defense for being ‘incredibly strong’, so how strong was it?
And the protectors felt anguished. Why was this owner of the Primal Chaos Flying Ship revealing all their secrets?
“For the sake of not prolonging the battle, how about this?” The sculpture Gu Qian Luo lowered his head and looked forward. That blood ruby eyes of his shot out a stream of light, forming a region that was faintly covered in dimmed red. It was about 100 meters wide.
“Whoever it is that can stay in this region for more than ten breaths will be my new aide.” The sculpture said, “Alright. Don’t dawdle anymore! Let’s begin!”
The moment he finished speaking, ‘sou!’ The protectors from the Ancestor Mother Religion rushed down towards that red region.
And the Paragons had teleported down with the help of Devil Phoenix, entering directly into that region. Even though it was 100 meters wide, it could fit all of them.
“Kill!” The leading golden-haired monkey’s eyes were filled with killing intent. He brought the protectors over.
“Hong long long~”
The cultivators and protectors began slaughtering each other.
Mysterious North Imperial Empress also employed her arrays. Monarch Hex Cricket was defending against the three Holy Protectors. Heavenly Emperor of Great Destruction was doing his best too. Xue Ying, White Sovereign King, Purgatory Great Commander, Bitter Cultivator, Paragon Huo Cheng, Bamboo Mountain Prefecture Master and other Paragons were staking their lives. Even that fortunate ‘Leaf Saint’ whose right arm had a huge strength increase, went on to fight with the apex protectors. All were doing their best.
“Die for me!” The golden-haired monkey roared. Both eyes shot out a golden light. The two streams of golden light were like two sharp lofty weapons as they pierced through many Paragons. Because of how sudden it was, it cut through the body of five Paragons almost instantaneously.
Fortunately, Xue Ying had relied on the Mirage World to teleport by the side of that golden-haired monkey. His Blood Serpent Spear reached the eyes of the monkey, disrupting his attack. The golden-haired monkey closed his eyes and waved out his palm carelessly. That palm swept its way over with a heaven-defiant strength. Xue Ying did not wish to parry it. He just teleported away.
The other party’s offensive power was too high. He would be forced back if he was hit. That was even when he hid in the Mirage World! Otherwise, he might die from a single strike!
But disrupting the Holy Protector proved Xue Ying’s capabilities. After all, only the three of them–he, White Sovereign King and Water Devil King dared to do so.
Naturally, Monarch Hex Cricket and Heavenly Emperor of Great Destruction were fighting head-on with the Holy Protectors.
The battle was bitter.
The Ancestor Mother Religion no longer cared about their lives. They wanted to triumph as fast as possible. Thus, the three Holy Protectors each took out their own treasures. The eyes of the golden-haired monkey emitted golden light. The streams of golden light were outstandingly strong and sharp–they were invincible. The venom-tailed girl brought out the jade-green crystal stone and embed it into her forehead. She would occasionally explode out with an ultra-strength, heavily injuring even Heavenly Emperor of Great Destruction in moments.
That muscular man with a wooden pole would sometimes spit out a terrifying stream of water. The flow of water was incomparably heavy. Even Monarch Hex Cricket was forced away by it. He was not able to assist the heavily injured Heavenly Emperor of Great Destruction in time!
Just three breaths later from the start of the battle, Heavenly Emperor of Great Destruction died!
Naturally, his actual body was outside the Primal Chaos Flying Ship. Thus, it would be soon that he would return with an avatar. Nonetheless, refining an avatar took time, and the Ancestor Mother Religion was striving for this slight amount of time. They were clear that they could not fight a lengthy battle! If they did, the cultivators would continuously form more avatars and before pitting the protectors to their deaths.
‘When the three Holy Protectors go all out, even Heavenly Emperor of Great Destruction could not resist. Do we not have any formidable treasures too?’ Xue Ying was feeling anxious too. All he could do was to rely on the Mirage World to teleport and put out the fire around the battlefield. He was trying his best to help Heavenly Emperor of Great Destruction.
But now, with the aid of treasures, the three Holy Protectors were each stronger than Heavenly Emperor of Great Destruction.
How could he help?
Even Monarch Hex Cricket was forced back.
‘We only have the arrays of Mysterious North Imperial Empress left?’ Xue Ying was distressed now. As the arrays were given by Bloodshed God-Emperor, they were able to gain the upper hand when fighting the previous two days. But now, when the three Holy Protectors stake their treasures to the battle, they became so strong that the cultivators were absolutely on the losing end.
Actually, Xue Ying understood. To gain the upper hand in this battle, they would have to have a treasure that could increase a Paragon’s strength to that of a Ruler!
But how rare was such a treasure?
The Ancestor Mother Religion no longer had any path of retreat. They did not spare at anything to prepare three treasures for the Holy Protectors. Nonetheless, the Cultivator Cosmos was incapable of bringing such treasures out which could tremendously improve the strength of a Paragon.
