Chapter 1247 – Is this Enough?
The boisterous waves surged, carrying with them an immense killing intent. As the people on the surrounding islands looked at the region where the scarlet water flowed, they saw two people standing on the waves.
“Xue Lingzi has invited the Ghost Master here to come deal with Mu Chen…”
“Mu Chen is done for this time.”
“The Ghost Master is a well-known Spiritual Array Ancestral Master in the Western Kingdom Continent. He will have no problem dealing with Mu Chen.”
The people whispered among themselves, gloating over Mu Chen’s misfortunes. After all, he was an outsider, who had been too presumptuous, showing no regard for the top powers in the Western Kingdom Continent!
His behavior had made many people very unhappy. As such, they would not sympathize with him, even if he was beaten and battered.
Xue Lingzi stood on the waves, then smiled viciously at Mu Chen and said, “My hands are tied as long as we are outside. However, if you die in the battlefield, the Flame Emperor cannot hold it against me.”
Xue Lingzi was filled with killing intent as he looked at Mu Chen. He was wary of Mu Chen, as Mu Chen was able to move around freely in the Battlefield of the Upper Earthly Sovereigns, even though he was only a Lower Earthly Sovereign. Judging from his progress, he would possess the strength comparable to a Complete Earthly Sovereign once he advanced to Upper Earthly Sovereign!
As such, Mu Chen was too powerful! And, now that Xue Lingzi and Mu Chen were arch-enemies, Xue Lingzi had to think of a way to get rid of him!
When Mu Chen heard what Xue Lingzi had said, he replied with a smile. “I agree.”
The feelings between these two were mutual, as Xue Lingzi wanted to kill Mu Chen, while Mu Chen wanted to help the Luo God Clan get rid of this troublemaker! If Xue Lingzi was eliminated, the Blood God Clan would suffer heavy losses, which would then give the Luo God Clan an opportunity to turn the tables on this war.
However, Xue Lingzi had hidden himself in the Blood God Clan and thus enjoyed the protection of its top powers. That fact, along with the additional topographical advantage that Xue Lingzi had, would make it very difficult for Mu Chen to kill him. Thus, the Battlefield of the Upper Earthly Sovereigns was a great opportunity for Mu Chen.
When Xue Lingzi saw Mu Chen looking at him with killing intent, he sneered. “Do you still dare to make such a comment, even now? You are truly hopeless!”
Having said that, Xue Lingzi turned to look at the Ghost Master, who was beside him. He then said, “Master, let’s go into the array. You can suppress the spiritual array, while I will kill the chap!” After all, without the help of the spiritual array, Mu Chen was like a toothless tiger to Xue Lingzi!
“Alright.” The Ghost Master nodded with a smile.
The Ancestral Master’s Spiritual Array was indeed extraordinary, but he had no problem suppressing it. Moreover, his job was simply to suppress it, whereas Xue Lingzi had to risk his life to fight Mu Chen!
After the decision had been made, the spies and the people in the White Jade Square saw the two of them walking on the waves. The pair then entered the Nine Dragons’ Deicide Array.
The moment the two of them stepped inside, an explosive spiritual energy fluctuation swirled out from the spiritual array. Then, Nine Spiritual Energy Dragons took shape, each exuding an immense oppression, while they fixed their gazes on Xue Lingzi and the Ghost Master.
“This spiritual array is indeed powerful!” The Ghost Master looked at the nine large Spiritual Energy Dragons and exclaimed. “Mu Chen is indeed gifted. He is so young, yet he possesses such a high level of skill in spiritual arrays!”
Xue Lingzi looked grew even colder, and his killing intent became stronger when he saw how gifted Mu Chen was. He then asked, “Ghost Master, are you able to suppress it?”
The Ghost Master said proudly, “Although this array is powerful, it is nothing to me!”
Having said that, the Ghost Master waved his sleeves, and a spiritual seal whizzed out and merged into the space.
A spiritual array took shape instantly. Space warps started to form, which then turned into nine large Spiritual Energy Chains. The chains pierced through the space and immediately bound the nine Spiritual Energy Dragons.
“My Dragon-Bound Array is able to suppress his spiritual array.” The Ghost Master smiled as he changed his seal. The Spiritual Clouds before them dispersed, paving a way for them.
“Go. You will be safe from the spiritual array. After you have killed that guy, the array will disappear,” the Ghost Master instructed.
Xue Lingzi’s eyes glittered, revealing his fury. After all, he had expected the Ghost Master to destroy Mu Chen’s spiritual array, but he had simply sealed it temporarily!
Apparently, it was not as easy to destroy the spiritual array as the Ghost Master had made it seem. Although Xue Lingzi was unhappy about this, he did not say a word. As long as the Ghost Master could suppress Mu Chen’s spiritual array, he had achieved his objective.
He nodded at the Ghost Master, then turned into a ray of red light and dashed past the pathway. In a moment, the view before him opened up completely. A mountain then appeared out of the sea, and Mu Chen was sitting cross-legged on its peak, just looking at him calmly.
“Young chap, let me see how you can turn the tables around without the help of the spiritual array!” Xue Lingzi sneered. He rose up slowly and appeared in front of Mu Chen.
Mu Chen looked down at him and said, “Let me show you.”
“Drop your pretense. You are doomed! Blood God’s Sky-trampling Foot!” Xue Lingzi’s eyes looked cold as he yelled and stamped his foot, causing a red light to swirl out and form a large red foot. The foot then moved toward the mountain peak that Mu Chen was sitting on, carrying with it a destructive force and a strong rotten smell.
As the large red foot fell down like a meteorite, Mu Chen took a deep breath. A crystal pagoda appeared in his eyes, and the majestic spiritual energy from his body infused into it, turning the crystal pagoda into a Crystal Spiritual Energy. The Crystal Spiritual Energy then flowed out and covered Mu Chen’s entire body.
Mu Chen then lifted up his hand, and a crystalized spiritual energy shot out from it. The light then formed a light shield above him.
As the large red foot stomped on the crystal cover, visible shockwaves raged out, smashing the entire space.
Although the crystal cover had fended off the large red foot, the horrifying power of it had still seeped through the crystal cover. As the mountain could not withstand its power, it collapsed instantly. Large rocks started to roll down into the sea, pulling Mu Chen along with them.
As Mu Chen stood on the surface of the water, he lifted up his head to look at the large red foot that had gradually dissipated into the air. If he continued to be pit against Xue Lingzi, based on their spiritual energies at the moment, even though he had the help of the crystal pagoda, he would be at a disadvantage. This was because Xue Lingzi was already an Upper Earthly Sovereign.
Xue Lingzi stood proudly in the sky, looking down at Mu Chen and mocking him. “Young chap, do you now know the difference between you and an Upper Earthly Sovereign? Without the spiritual array, you will not be able to contend with an Upper Earthly Sovereign, at least based on your current spiritual energy.”
He knew that Mu Chen’s spiritual energy was mysterious, so he did not give Mu Chen a chance to touch him. Instead, he chose to attack Mu Chen from afar, using his spiritual energy. In this way, that Mu Chen would soon know that he was inferior to him!
“Summon your Sovereign Celestial Appearance now, lest you have no more chances in the future!” Although Xue Lingzi was mocking Mu Chen mercilessly, Mu Chen simply smiled at him.
Mu Chen then said, “I don’t have to summon the Sovereign Celestial Appearance to deal with you.”
“Oh? Are you still so stiff-necked?” Xue Lingzi asked.
Mu Chen smiled and ignored him. He stomped his foot on the surface of the water, causing the waters to surge upwards. In the next instant, about a thousand figures shot up from the bottom of the sea and stood behind Mu Chen!
When the thousand figures appeared, their auras gathered together and exuded a majestic fighting spirit that spread out like an ocean’s tide. When Xue Lingzi saw the troop, he squinted his eyes and sneered.
He then yelled, “You have finally summoned your troop! However, if you are thinking of using them to deal with an Upper Earthly Sovereign, I can only say that you are being too naïve!”
Xue Lingzi was familiar with the Spirit-slaughtering Troop that Mu Chen had just summoned. When they were at the Luo River, Mu Chen had used it to trap a Lower Earthly Sovereign from the Blood God Clan.
However, that encounter was their limit. If Mu Chen intended to use the Spirit-slaughtering Troop to deal with him, it would be nothing more than wishful thinking on his part.
When Mu Chen saw Xue Lingzi sneering at him, he curled up his lips and said with a smile, “If this is not enough, then how about another troop?”
The minute Mu Chen finished his statement, an indescribable horrifying fighting spirit burst out from the bottom of the sea. The fighting spirit was so powerful, it took Xue Lingzi by surprise.
Several water columns burst out from the sea, while many more figures shot out and stood behind Mu Chen. There were now over 1,000 of them, and they were fully armored. They held black scythes in their hands and ancient runes were carved on their bodies.
Their fighting spirit had far surpassed the Spirit-slaughtering Troop’s! This troop was the elite troop of the First Hall Master of the Ancient Celestial Palace, known as the Demon Subduing Troop!
Mu Chen lifted up his head to look at Xue Lingzi, whose expression had changed drastically.
Mu Chen’s laughter resounded throughout the area as he asked, “Is this enough?”
