Chapter 1211 – Your Knight
“Great Array of the Luo River!” The moment Luo Tianshen shouted these words, giant waves arose from the rivers beneath him immediately.
The waters spread quickly, forming a curtain of water. This curtain was like a bowl that had been turned upside down, completely enveloping Luo God City within it.
The water curtain wavered, and a blinding spiritual light shone out from it. A faint ancient aura radiated out from it majestically.
The curtain seemed quite thin to the naked eye, but the valiant spiritual energy it exuded even made Xue Lingzi’s pupils constrict slightly. It seemed like the Luo God Clan had already prepared for their arrival!
“Hmph, it seems like the Luo God Clan does not want to enjoy peace with the Blood God Clan!” Xue Lingzi said coldly, while he immediately stretched forth his hand fiercely.
Then, with a telekinetic pull, the blood clouds all around him gathered together, forming a gigantic blood handprint. The bloody palm then slammed down from up high, directly crashing onto the water curtain that was encasing the city.
As the two clashed together, violent ripples ripped through the water curtain. Then, layer after layer of the curtain were stripped away, as if it was about to burst.
In Luo God City, countless people were looking at the fluctuating water curtain with pale faces. They knew that, as soon as the water curtain burst, the Blood God Clan would begin their massacre.
However, under their fearful gazes, the water curtain that seemed to be at the brink of breaking somehow endured the powerful attack of Xue Lingzi. Then, the ripples dissipated, and the water curtain regained its initial calm state, quietly protecting the Luo God City from above.
Seeing that the water curtain had held strong, Xue Lingzi’s face changed slightly. It was clear that the defensive capabilities of the Great Array of the Luo River were beyond his expectations.
“Xue Lingzi, you can keep dreaming. This great array is powered by the sacred Luo River. As long as the that river flows, you will not break it!” Luo Tianshen was relieved at the sight of this, so he took the opportunity to gloat.
Despite the Luo God Clan’s decline, they were like an old tiger that still retained some of its ferocity. The background of the Luo God Clan ran far deeper than the Blood God Clan. As such, its protective great array could not even be broken by a Complete Earthly Sovereign, not to mention Upper Earthly Sovereigns! Thus, it was their greatest protection when they decided to conduct the ritual at that moment.
“Hmph, I don’t believe your turtle shell can protect you forever!” Xue Lingzi’s eyes were dark, and a vicious glint shone in his gaze. Then, with a wide swing of his arm, he bellowed, “Focus your attacks on a single point and break it!”
The five Blood God Clan elders immediately revealed their fierce faces, while their immense spiritual energies rushed forth, filling the atmosphere and dyeing the entire world blood-red. Then, a sharp bloody scent rose into the sky.
An Upper Earthly Sovereign and five Lower Earthly Sovereigns all combined their strength at once and created loud bangs that shattered the earth. Meanwhile, terrible spiritual energy attacks rained down from the skies, pinpointing a single spot on the water curtain.
Facing the fierce attack, violent ripples ripped through the surface of the curtain, almost covering the entire curtain. The citizens within the city trembled in fear as they looked at the shaking curtain of water.
But, Luo Tianshen was calm and composed, without a single sign of panic on his face. He seemed to be extremely confident in the Great Array of the Luo River. As long as they defended it well, the Blood God Clan could not touch them!
“Luo Li, hurry up,” Luo Tianshen mumbled as he stared at Luo Li, who was enveloped in fiercely burning flames.
As long as Luo Li completed her breakthrough, their clan would truly be united. At that time, even if the Blood God Clan were hostile to them, they would have the capacity to fight back.
As if hearing Luo Tianshen’s voice, the flames surrounding Luo Li suddenly burned even fiercer. The flames rolled and spread, forming a storm of flames and encircling her within it.
Within the dark red storm, blood red flowers were fluttering and dancing. They were beautiful and enticing.
“Ancestors, please protect our Luo God Clan!” Within the dark red storm, the girl’s slender hands were clasped together and crimson blood was dripping from her fingertips. She had murmured the plea quietly, as if she was saying a prayer.
Blood dripped down into the billowing Luo River, sinking into its deepest depths.
At that moment, the Luo River was suddenly boiling and Roselle flowers were dancing all around. The flowers gathered behind Luo Li, then slowly turned into a figure.
The figure was extremely slender. Although her face was blurry, it was clear that the figure had a soul-stirring beauty.
An ancient wind could also be felt emanating from the figure. At the moment the figure appeared, everyone in the Luo God Clan was surprised, as they could feel the power of their bloodline within her.
“Is… is that the Luo God ancestor?” Luo Tianshen shivered and gazed in awe at the figure behind Luo Li.
Then, he could no longer hold back his tears. At their clan’s lowest point, their ancestor had really appeared!
The slender figure looked at Luo Li and let out a light laugh. As the laugh resonated in the air, the whole earth turned silent.
Her slender fingers stretched forth, lightly tapping on Luo Li’s forehead. In a flash, an endless spiritual light surged out, rushing into Luo Li’s mind.
“Is that the inheritance of the Luo God?” one of the three Earthly Sovereigns asked. These three representatives from the royal branch families were red with envy, as they did not expect Luo Li’s ritual to achieve this high level!
“Praises to our immortal ancestor! Long live the king!” In the city, the people were excited, and countless figures kneeled down in reverence, while a deafening and joyful roar echoed throughout the atmosphere.
Beyond the curtain of the Great Array of the Luo River, Xue Lingzi’s face was completely pale. In the depths of his eyes, there was a dark tint of fear and fright. Luo Li had clearly made him felt threatened.
Seeing that the water curtain had remained intact, even under their ferocious offense, he bellowed, “What are you all waiting for?”
His bellowing echoed in the skies, and even Luo Tianshen’s eyes were frozen for a moment. Could he actually be calling out for the Strength God Clan and the Bone God Clan?
As Luo Tianshen was focused on the other two clans, he did not notice the three Lower Earthly Sovereigns from the branch family who were trying to sabotage the ritual. One of the elders took a few steps forward, getting closer to the Luo River.
“What are you doing?” Luo Tianlong, who was observing the three, immediately asked.
Just as he finished his sentence, the two other Lower Earthly Sovereigns appeared before him, blocking his way. In an instant, the elder that went to the Luo River took out a jade bottle that was filled with a black liquid from his pocket. He then poured its entire contents into the river.
The jade bottle shattered, and a black wave suddenly rushed out in all directions. The black wave was emitting an extremely dark and cold energy fluctuation. Every spot it touched on the river turned into ice immediately.
As the river froze, the Great Array of the Luo River was compromised. So, with a quake, a part of the water screen started to crumble.
“You are seeking death!” When he saw this, Luo Tianshen’s eyes were about to pop out of their sockets. He scolded them with a loud roar.
He had not expected that the people from the branch family could be so shameless! They had obviously been colluding with the Blood God Clan from the start.
A vast and terrifying spiritual energy burst forth from Luo Tianshen’s body. He immediately aimed a murderous look at the three traitors, then his body rushed forward.
But, as he rushed forward, a bloody wave flowed past him, while Xue Lingzi came in through the broken hole in the Great Array of the Luo River, blocking him from the front.
“Luo Tianshen, you were celebrating too early just now!” Xue Lingzi stopped Luo Tianshen in his tracks and showed an eerie smile. He then bellowed, “Break the ritual!”
He was obviously beckoning the five Lower Earthly Sovereign from the Blood God Clan. Just as he finished saying this, three of the five Lower Earthly Sovereigns, who were trying hard to expand the hole in the water curtain, rushed out and entered the hole with a bloody aura.
“There shall be no mercy given to those who dare offend our king!” When they rushed toward Luo Li, countless roars echoed on both sides of the Luo River.
Luo Qingya and Luo Xiu flew up in a burst, and the troops behind them were in the air as well. A violent fighting intent exploded forth, transforming into waves that crashed into the three Lower Earthly Sovereigns.
“Hmph, what a futile attempt!” One of the Lower Earthly Sovereigns spoke coldly, then appeared before the rushing spiritual intent. A terrible red spiritual energy burst forth, and he blocked Luo Qingya’s and Luo Xiu’s armies all by himself!
Meanwhile, the two other Lower Earthly Sovereigns were charging toward Luo Li…
“Protect the king!” At this moment of crisis, countless figures shot out from the two banks of the Luo River. The many Nine Grade Sovereigns from the Luo God Clan appeared as well, forming layers of protection in front of Luo Li.
However, the two did not care much about the wall of people protecting her. One of them shot out, and with a stomp of his feet, a Sovereign Celestial Appearance appeared and opened its mouth widely. With a gigantic huff, it sucked in the spiritual energies that were around it.
At the next moment, just as the Celestial Appearance opened its mouth, a terrible soundwave reverberated in the atmosphere, completely blowing away all of the Nine Grade Sovereigns at once.
A third Lower Earthly Sovereign did not even look at them, but after penetrating the hole, he shot out a beam of spiritual energy with a flick of his finger, sending it crashing into the White Jade Stage.
The stage cracked, broke, and fell into the Luo River, where it began to float. On top of the stage, Luo Li’s eyes remained shut.
“Haha, is there anyone left who can stop me?” While looking at Luo Li, the Lower Earthly Sovereign laughed scornfully. Now that the trump cards of the Luo God Clan were exhausted, this Luo God Ritual could be considered a true failure!
With a grip of his palm, a blood spear appeared in his hands. The point of the spear was pointed at Luo Li, undoubtedly prepared to end her life.
Facing this drastic turn of events, the countless citizens of the Luo God Clan cried out in despair as they looked on. Hearing the desperate cries that filled the city, Luo Li’s eyes were suddenly wide open.
However, she could only look on as the Lower Earthly Sovereign came close. She clasped her hands tightly, her fingernails sinking into her palm. She then began biting her lips, causing blood to trickled out of her mouth.
Coming closer and closer, the Lower Earthly Sovereign looked at Luo Li and jeered. “What a waste! Is the ultimate genius of the Luo God Clan going to die at my hands? Little girl, prepare to die!”
His eyes suddenly focused, and a gushing wave of blood gathered on the tip of the spear. The spear then stretched forth, piercing the air and shooting towards Luo Li.
As the spear flew forth, the whole world was quiet. Within the city, countless citizens fell down in despair.
Luo Qingya and Luo Xiu bellowed furiously, invoking their spiritual energies to repeatedly break through the blockage of the Lower Earthly Sovereign that was before them. Luo Tianshen, who was entangled by Xue Lingzi, cried out in despair, while Luo Tianlong was repeatedly forced back by the two Lower Earthly Sovereigns from the branch family.
Luo Li bit her red lips tightly, and a trace of blood trickled down from the corner of her mouth.
Then, the red blood spear tore through the air.
The very moment the spear appeared in front of Luo Li, everyone could hear a sudden and sharp explosion echoing in the air. The Lower Earthly Sovereign from the Blood God Clan seemed to have noticed something, and his face went pale.
Something exploded in the sky, and a black light burst forth at an indescribably fast speed. The speed of the light was so fast, even the Lower Earthly Sovereign could not evade it. In his next breath, the light crashed down on him!
A loud thunderous noise reverbated in the air, and countless observers dropped their jaws as they saw the surface of the Luo River cave in! Waves that were hundreds of thousands of feet tall arose in the air, only to crash down as a torrential rain.
“What’s that?” an onlooker wondered aloud, as everyone looked on with shocked expressions.
The powerful individuals from all sides had simultaneously stopped at the moment. They were all staring at the Luo River with fearful eyes. Only when the rain cleared up slightly, could they finally see anything.
The Lower Earthly Sovereign from the Blood God Clan was floating on the river like a dead fish. On his back, a figure donning black was pressing his hand onto the Lower Earthly Sovereign’s head and kneeling on his broken spine with his knee. This scene was utterly overwhelming!
The rain continued, as Luo Li also stared at the figure who descended like a god. She was a little shaken, but she was able to clear her mind after a few moments. Then, her beautiful crystal eyes opened wide, and an expression of disbelief slowly crept onto her exquisite countenance.
The black figure then raised his head and looked at the face that was before him. He appeared as if he had missed it dearly.
As a gentle smile appeared on his young and handsome face, he put his right hand on his chest, gave a slight bow, then said laughingly, “My queen! Your knight is here.”
