Book 12 – Immortal Strife (ch1010-1540)
Chapter 1134 Trap!
Yin Miaomiao answered without the slightest hesitation. “Alright. But I need some assistants.”
Whitetail King slightly believed her ability instead when he saw that she was calm and composed, and his expression eased up before he said, “I’ll agree to anything so long as you’re able to deal with it.”
Yin Miaomiao flew up, her clothes fluttered while her gaze was deep, and she gazed at the surroundings of the grand formation for a long time. When everyone was slightly impatient from waiting, she said, “If I’m not wrong, this grand formation is called the Major Thunderclap Devilbreak Slaughter Formation, and it’s sufficient to trap and kill a Golden Immortal.”
A Golden Immortal!
Everyone was shocked as soon as these words were spoken. They were at most at the Mysterious Immortal Realm, and even Whitetail King hadn’t attained the Golden Immortal Realm. Even though he possessed an army of almost two thousand, it would definitely suffer extremely heavy losses if they were to enter this grand formation.
Whitetail King’s pupils constricted. But he seemed to be much more composed, and he said in a low voice, “Can you deal with it?”
Yin Miaomiao nodded and said, “This grand formation isn’t complete. It hasn’t formed a link with the might of the gods of the heavens and the earth, so its might is much weaker. But even then, it’s still slightly troublesome to break open this formation.”
Everyone present here heaved a sigh of relief in their hearts when they heard this.
“I need three hundred and twenty assistants.” Yin Miaomiao said frankly, “This grand formation is extremely troublesome, and it has to be broken open from different positions at the same time. So I need them to carry out my orders at the first possible moment when breaking open the formation.”
Whitetail King turned around and said to Lord Nine Spirits when he heard this, “Bring your subordinates along and listen to the instructions of this girl.” His voice was indifferent yet carried an indisputable tone.
Nine Spirits’ heart shook, and he didn’t dare refuse. He immediately led his row upon row of guards to stand before Yin Miaomiao and listen to her orders.
“This grand formation’s foundation is based on the form of the nine palaces. The center palace is the core of the formation. Form groups of sixty and wait at the various other positions of the Nine Palaces.” Yin Miaomiao acted immediately and without the slightest hesitation. Her tone and actions naturally carried a well-planned bearing, and it caused Whitetail King and the other Cosmos Beasts to be much more at ease.
In next to no time, Lord Nine Spirits’ subordinates had moved according to Yin Miaomiao’s instructions and were distributed on the positions of the ‘nine palaces’ that lay outside the grand formation.
“The position of Kan, forward three steps, back two steps, destroy the blue colored lightning.”
“The position of Gen, attack the ground 21m away with all your might.”
“The position of Zhen, take defensive positions and destroy any lightning you encounter. Make the grand formation unable to circulate.”
Yin Miaomiao took a deep breath when she saw this scene, and then her gaze became cold and calm like snow before she issued instruction after instruction. Due to speaking being too slow, she directly utilized her Immortal Sense to send voice transmissions, and eight different commands were completely sent out in practically an instant.
As soon as she finished speaking, the Cosmos Beasts that had been divided into eight groups that stood at different positions around the grand formation shouted in unison before attacking the grand formation with all their might.
Bang! Bang! Bang!
The entire Major Thunderclap Devilbreak Slaughter Formation’s surroundings suddenly emanated waves of explosions and quaking that shook the heavens and the earth, and it caused the entire grand formation to shake violently.
“Not bad, not bad.” Whitetail King’s expression became even more relaxed when he saw this. He was able to clearly notice that the energy of the distant grand formation was undergoing intense fluctuation, and it wouldn’t be long before the grand formation would collapse and shatter into pieces.
The nearby Jiang Zhuliu grunted coldly. “It isn’t just not bad, if it was any other Talisman Formation Grandmaster here, then that person would probably be unable to achieve such perfection like Miaomiao!”
Whitetail King glanced at Jiang Zhuliu, yet didn’t say anything.
“Kun position, Xun position, and Dui position hear my command. Attack at full force. You must fight your way 3km into the formation!”
“Qian position hear my command. Quickly withdraw from the formation and join forces with the Kan position in defense!”
“All other positions, continue standing your ground and destroy the lightning in the surroundings!”
Yin Miaomiao remained indifferent towards everything in the surroundings while her Immortal Senses enveloped the entire area, and it locked firmly onto every single change in the entire grand formation, then she issued orders according to the varying situations.
If one looked down from the sky, one would notice that the Major Thunderclap Devilbreak Slaughter Formation that covered an area of 50k was shrinking without end.
The edges of the grand formation were even collapsing successively.
This sort of change instantly caused the morale of the beast army to rise, and then they revealed fierce and savage expressions as they rubbed their fists together while itching for action.
Whitetail King nodded to himself while an absurd thought couldn’t help but arise in his heart.
If my Cosmos Sacred Race possesses numerous Talisman Formation Grandmasters, then it would have probably killed its way into the three dimensions, right?
“Whitetail King, I need a thousand experts to stand on guard at the collapsing areas of the outer ring of the grand formation. Swiftly! Otherwise, the advantage we’ve gained will be lost!” Right at this moment, Yin Miaomiao’s voice sounded out from midair.
Whitetail King’s face turned solemn as he immediately ordered the other three lords and said, “Greenwing, Winterway, Sophoradew. Lead your subordinates and listen to Miss Miaomiao’s orders!”
“Yes!” The three Cosmos Beast lords led their respective subordinates and flew over in a vast array.
In this way, besides Whitetail King, only around six hundred Cosmos Beasts hadn’t been deployed.
“Nice! That kid thought he’ll be able to be safe and sound by setting up the grand formation, yet how could he have imagined that he would encounter Miaomiao and me here? He deserves to suffer such misfortune!” The nearby Jiang Zhuliu couldn’t help but be extremely excited when he saw the situation was so good.
Along with Yin Miaomiao commanding the Cosmos Beast army to break open the grand formation, the fluctuation of the Major Thunderclap Devilbreak Slaughter Formation grew more and more violent, and it showed signs of collapsing from outside in.
“We’re finished. The grand formation is about to be broken open. What should we do now?” At the center of the grand formation where the core of the formation lay, Wei Na watched the beast army that pressed down step by step from all directions, and she was both anxious and terrified.
She turned around to look at Chen Xi yet saw him sitting cross-legged on the rock with a ramrod straight posture, and he had his eyes closed while revealing a calm expression. He seemed to be completely unaware of everything occurring in the surroundings.
“Could…could it be that you’re not afraid?” Wei Na couldn’t restrain the terror in her heart any longer, and she asked Chen Xi with a trembling voice. “It’s already come to a time like this, yet how can you still sit there calmly?”
Chen Xi opened his eyes and glanced at Wei Na before he said, “Have they injured you?”
Wei Na was stunned as she said, “No.”
Chen Xi said, “Then what’re you afraid of?”
Wei Na was instantly filled with worry. She stretched out her paw to point outside the grand formation before she said anxiously, “But, they… They’re about to arrive here.”
Chen Xi closed his eyes once more. “You’ll understand soon.”
Wei Na was stunned.
Soon? I’ll be dead soon. What would I be able to understand then?
She opened her mouth with the intention of saying something, yet she instantly became extremely discouraged when she saw Chen Xi had already closed his eyes. She squatted on the ground while looking anxiously towards the area outside the grand formation, and she was both terrified and worried.
Just like this, Chen Xi sat cross-legged in a composed manner while a white rabbit squatted alone on the ground at his feet, and it was terrified, uneasy, anxious, hesitant…
Outside the grand formation, the destruction of the formation was carried out like a raging fire. Yin Miaomiao’s eyes were always fixed upon the grand formation. Since she started breaking open the formation until now, everything was within her expectations, and every single step had been carried out in a practically perfect manner.
But a wisp of faint uneasiness arose in her heart for no reason or rhyme, and it seemed to be because…it was going too smoothly?
It was precisely this strand of uneasiness that caused Yin Miaomiao to be even more vigilant. She utterly didn’t dare slack off in the slightest, and the speed she issued her commands grew swifter and swifter.
Only the last layer of talisman diagram remains. So long as it’s destroyed, then everything is over! This won’t do, I must speed it up even more…
After a short moment, Yin Miaomiao took a deep breath before she suddenly turned around and said to Whitetail King, “Whitetail King. Lead all your remaining subordinates to kill your way into the grand formation now!”
Whitetail King was stunned, and then he frowned and said, “Does this King have to make a move as well?”
Yin Miaomiao’s expression was extremely firm. “This is the most important moment, and we must focus all our strength to destroy the grand formation in one go!”
“Whitetail King, don’t forget that you’re working for the Zuoqiu Clan!” The nearby Jiang Zhuliu spoke coldly.
Whitetail King’s expression sank when the Zuoqiu Clan was mentioned, and the hatred that had been accumulated in his heart for many years faintly showed signs of boiling.
He took a deep breath to forcefully restrain the restlessness in his heart, and then he said coldly, “I can allow you to command all of my subordinates, but this King’s life…won’t be handed over to the hands of a little girl!”
Yin Miaomiao knew that this was the best outcome when she heard this, and she immediately nodded in agreement.
“Hmph!” Jiang Zhuliu grunted coldly with discontent instead.
Whitetail King didn’t care about Jiang Zhuliu’s attitude at all. He immediately ordered the other Cosmos Beasts in the vicinity to obey Yin Miaomiao’s command, and they charged into the grand formation.
“Everyone, hear my command. Forward assault with all your might!” Yin Miaomiao’s calm and cold voice revealed a wisp of a resolute and decisive tone.
In the next moment, the entire grand formation trembled violently and shook without end. The various bolts of lightning contained within it couldn’t help but dim down as well.
Its imposing aura became greatly inferior when compared to before.
Quick, quick, quick!!
Outside the grand formation, Yin Miaomiao’s expression was cold and aloof, yet she was anxious in her heart instead because the strand of uneasiness that coiled around her heart became more and more clearly. It seemed as if something bad was about to happen.
“The formation is destroyed!” Meanwhile, a beast suddenly roared towards the sky, and it caused everyone to seethe with excitement.
Yin Miaomiao’s heart shook instead, and then she swiftly turned around to look. However, when she saw the so called ‘destroyed formation’ clearly, the wisp of a smile that hadn’t been fully formed on the corners of her mouth had instantly frozen.
“Miaomiao, do you want me to lend you a hand?” Jiang Zhuliu roared with laughter as he flew over.
“You did well.” Whitetail King soared into the sky as well, and then he nodded at Yin Miaomiao to display his praise.
Yin Miaomiao seemed as if she didn’t notice all of this instead, and her gaze stared fixedly at the core area of the grand formation as she muttered. “Why is it like this? Could it be that I fell into his trap since I started breaking open the formation? It can’t be, it definitely can’t be…”
Because she was too horrified, she didn’t conceal her voice, and it was clearly heard by Jiang Zhuliu and Whitetail King. Both of their hearts instantly jerked as they cried out in their hearts.
Right at this moment, a terrifying and oppressive aura suddenly effused out from within the grand formation. It was like a primeval ferocious beast that had been jolted awake after slumbering for countless years, and it emanated a piercingly cold aura that caused the heavens and the earth to be cast into a shade.
At this instant, all the seething and clamorous noise in the surroundings stopped abruptly!
