“Bamboo Mountain, die for me!” Paragon Huo Cheng turned into a stream of dazzling flames. He charged directly toward Bamboo Mountain Prefecture Master.
Bamboo Mountain Prefecture Master had a cold expression. He was ultimately a Paragon. Even though he had hesitated when making the final decision of betraying the Cultivators, Bamboo Mountain Prefecture Master was still wholeheartedly on the side of the Ancestor Mother Religion. Since he had made his decision, he would not regret it! From now on, he would be part of the Ancestor Mother Religion and enemies of the cultivators!
“Just with you?” Bamboo Mountain Prefecture Master received Paragon Huo Cheng’s attacks emotionlessly.
“Everyone, pay attention and protect Protector Plum! This is his final body. For the sake of concealing his identity, he has yet to return home after reincarnating. His body isn’t that robust either.” The golden-haired monkey transmitted to all his comrades. Cultivating the Ancestor Mother system required resources and the right environment. Even though Bamboo Mountain Prefecture Master understood the Ancestor Mother cultivation system and had the resources, he never went back to the Ancestor Mother cosmos after reincarnating. Thus, his physique could not compare with that of the protectors.
“Protector Plum has made a huge contribution.” These protectors were all very excited.
“Kill!” Xue Ying, Water Devil King, Purgatory Great Commander and the others were all exasperated. They were doing their best to kill their way forward. Mysterious North Imperial Empress was also assisting them with her arrays.
“Hong long long~”
Both sides became embroiled in another battle.
However, the overall situation was apparent–the cultivators were entirely on the losing end.
That was also because the cultivators had lost all their top combat forces! Great Destruction was killed previously, and had yet to send an avatar in! Monarch Hex Cricket was murdered beforehand, and his new body was still forming. Besides, Bamboo Mountain Prefecture Master betrayed the cultivators, causing the other party to gain an apex Paragon combat force and for the cultivators to lose one correspondingly.
The gap between the top combat forces was tremendous. The other side had a total of three Holy Protectors.
“Peng.” Purgatory Great Commander’s body was torn directly by the golden-haired monkey.
Bitter Cultivator’s chest was pierced once again by that unpredictable and sneaky tail of the venom-tailed girl.
Paragon Huo Cheng was soon killed by her too.
Xue Ying might be trying his best…
But other than him, Water Devil King and White Sovereign King who were more proficient in survival, the others were slaughtered. The three Holy Protectors were utterly suppressing them! As for the ordinary Paragons, their outcome was even more obvious.
“Even if we lose, we must kill some of them at least.” The Paragons were yelling in rage before their deaths. They were all unreconciled for their loss this time was a great injustice. Victory seemed so close to them, yet it had actually been destroyed by the one they trusted–Bamboo Mountain Prefecture Master!
Monarch Hex Cricket’s body was finally reformed, though he was only good at surviving and could not change the current situation.
Heavenly Emperor of Great Destruction had finally arrived. But just as he reached, the three Holy Protectors worked together to deal against him. The golden-haired monkey shot out another golden ray from his eyes to heavily injure him. The other two took that opportunity to kill him once again.
There was honestly no hope for the Cultivators anymore!
Within the vast palace hall of the Ancestor Mother Religion, the group of Religious Leaders was watching the scene of the battle. They were all ecstatic at this moment.
“Hahaha, who would have thought that Protector Plum is still alive. He has succeeded in reincarnating.” The huge fanged-hunk laughed, “And furthermore, he is cautious in not revealing himself. Even I did not know of it. This time, he appeared at the most pivotal moment, resulting in the doom of the cultivators.”
“It is time for their race to be exterminated. This cosmos will belong to us.”
“With the Primal Chaos Flying Ship, we will have won half the battle. The upcoming battle with the Rulers will be much smoother.”
Unlike the joyful atmosphere on the side of the Religious Leaders, the atmosphere where the ten Rulers were at was grave.
Bloodshed God-Emperor, Primal Master, Abyss Primogenitor and the others were looking at the scene in the Primal Chaos Flying Ship. They were watching as the Paragons staked their lives. As time passed, even though a breath seemed long to the powerful existences, it was still passing by mercilessly.
“I am the one who determined the nine Paragons. It is my fault to have judged him wrongly.” Bloodshed God-Emperor said calmly.
“Bloodshed, let’s not talk about you. All of us here have never thought that Bamboo Mountain was from the Ancestor Mother Religion Cosmos. He has clearly been cultivating in our cosmos and has karmic lines attached to his body too. How could he be from the Ancestor Mother Religion? Unless he stole the karma away from someone? Or is it because of other reasons?” Primal Master shook his head lightly.
Temporal Island Lord had a cold expression as he watched nonchalantly, “Defeat. The Paragons have lost. The Ancestor Mother Religion will most likely be utilizing this mysterious Primal Chaos Flying Ship in the future battle. The outcome of the war seems uncertain now.”
“Even so, we must fight on.” Myriad God Palace Master added.
“Though the Paragons lost, they have done their best.” Empress Qian He sighed.
Bloodshed God-Emperor looked calmly. He watched as the Paragons were wildly attacking without regard of anything. They just wanted to kill one more protector. He then said, “They have done well. It is us who will determine our fate next.”
The Paragons were sending themselves to their deaths. They refined another avatar before sending them into the Primal Chaos Flying Ship. Nonetheless, these avatars were being sent to death.
When Heavenly Emperor of Great Destruction appeared, everyone felt hopeful. But the three Holy Protectors dominated and dealt with him. The golden-haired monkey did not care about saving the treasure. He just used the golden ray from his eyes to injure Heavenly Emperor. Following that, the other two teamed up together to kill Great Destruction again! Without the ‘strange treasure’ at hand, Heavenly Emperor of Great Destruction became feeble in survival. The moment he died, everyone lost hope.
Eight breaths of time passed, and soon, nine breaths.
There were only five Paragons left in the battlefield–White Sovereign King, Xue Ying, Water Devil King, Monarch Hex Cricket and Devil Phoenix.
Just the five of them!
Even Mysterious North Imperial Empress who was good in arrays had been killed.
“It is useless for them to struggle. We will win as long as we hold on for another breath of time.” The protectors were too lazy to attack anymore. They formed a circle. An unseen ripple emanated by the three Holy Protectors defended everyone within. Bamboo Mountain Prefecture Master was located at the center.
Without the help of arrays, Xue Ying and the rest could not even kill a single protector. That unseen ripple could effectively suppress Xue Ying’s Mirage World and Devil Phoenix’s domain.
“We lost.” Water Devil King sat down on his butt; his head was lowered.
“Hahaha, it seems when we were about to win, yet because of Bamboo Mountain… haha…” White Sovereign King stopped too. Even his laughter was filled with mournful desperation.
Devil Phoenix stood on one side without speaking.
Monarch Hex Cricket sat down cross-legged too. He let out a sigh.
All of them were in despair.
Were they about to lose?
If the Ancestor Mother Religion was able to employ the Primal Chaos Flying Ship, could the Rulers confront them? Would the many lives in the entire Cultivation Cosmos be endangered and exterminated? Would even those who transcended die?
‘Is it the final round already?’ Xue Ying still remained standing. He looked at the Ancestor Mother Religion protectors who came from another cosmos before turning towards the helpless and despondent Paragons. Even his teacher Bloodshed God-Emperor was no longer transmitting any instructions over. Did he give up too?
‘I can only contribute what I have.’
Xue Ying walked forward step by step.
“Dong Bo Xue Ying is still walking to us?” The protectors were looking at him with shock. It was like watching a fool walking to them. Bamboo Mountain Prefecture Master felt wary.
“He hasn’t given up?”
“Who could he kill when the everyone is protected by the domains of the three Holy Protectors?”
The protectors merely treated Xue Ying as a deranged person and someone unwilling to admit defeat.
Xue Ying continued walking forward step by step.
‘I can only contribute what I have!’
‘I can’t afford to lose!’
‘I am worried that the Ancestor Mother Religion has some hidden techniques still. That is why I have been waiting for them to finish using them.’
‘But… this is the final moment.’
‘The Paragons have tried their best.’
‘If that’s the case–then let us begin the last round!’
‘We might lose.’
‘Everything is up to fate.’
Xue Ying stopped. He looked at that group of protectors, and also Bamboo Mountain Prefecture Master who stood at the center. He took out a Black Gourd with his left hand, and following that, his right hand calmly unplugged the cork.
