Chapter 753: Gift
The legendary Desolate race figures never thought that a person could be so shameless. The Sovereign of the Eventide had failed to steal the Sacred Spirit’s corpse and he had activated the Divine Bone Altar’s arrays as a result. Yet, he stood there, all high and mighty, like he was on a moral high ground and he even reprimanded them.
It was like the Sovereign of the Eventide was doing this for all life under the skies, while the Desolate race appeared selfish.
The legendary Desolate race figures were tempted to attack him, but at that moment, a crisp voice resounded beneath the dark clouds.
“Yun’er will not die.” Jiang Xiaorou, with her bone staff in hand, stood in front of the Desolate race Palace. As the cold wind blew, Jiang Xiaorou’s red dress fluttered about. She stood in great contrast against the dark sky.
The Sovereign of the Eventide was slightly surprised as he turned his head around and looked at Jiang Xiaorou. “I know you. You are Yi Yun’s Desolate race sister, right? I understand the yearning in your heart, but unfortunately… ” The Sovereign of the Eventide shook his head. “The time you spent cultivating martial arts is short, so you are limited in your realms. You can’t understand the terrifying complexities of the spatial maze set up by the Black-armored Demon God. There is a vast difference between the understanding of spatial dimension laws amongst the Tian Yuan world and Divine Wilderness warriors and the Black-armored Demon God’s. Although my strength might not match up to Yi Yun, I happen to be one of the few people in this world that understand spatial dimension laws. But even I would be forever lost if I were to be sealed in the Black-armored Demon God’s spatial maze.”
Jiang Xiaorou looked coldly at the Sovereign of the Eventide. She said slowly but with a forceful tone, “Indeed, I do not understand the terror of the Black-armored Demon God, but I know that even if I were to hand you the Sacred Spirit’s corpse, and even if you were to break through by a few realms, you would still be like manure in front of the Black-armored Demon God! Yun’er could force the Black-armored Demon God to seal himself. As for you, all you could do was flee before the Black-armored Demon God arrived. You were like a mouse tunneling into a hole to hide. Hoping that you would withstand the Black-armored Demon God in twenty years time? I rather hope that the Black-armored Demon God would commit suicide!”
Jiang Xiaorou got to the truth with her pertinent remarks. She voiced out what many of the legendary Desolate race figures were thinking.
The Sovereign of the Eventide’s eyebrow pricked up as he narrowed his eyes to look at Jiang Xiaorou.
And at that moment, the legendary Desolate race figures were already transmitting voices amongst themselves. They were prepared to attack!
They believed that the God Advent Tower was in the Sovereign of the Eventide’s hands. And they had to protect the object that Yi Yun had left behind by all means!
The Sovereign of the Eventide sneered. “You want to set up a battle formation to fight me? How would I allow that!?”
Upon saying this, the Sovereign of the Eventide moved. He long knew about the God Confining Lock that the Desolate race had. As the God Confining Lock array was extremely draining on the legendary Desolate race figures, and having used it twice during the battle with the Black-armored Demon God, many legendary Desolate race figures had suffered a drop in their cultivation realms. Now, it was unknown if they could successfully activate such an array.
Even if they could, the setting up of the God Confining Lock array required time. Such an array could only be effective if it was set up in advance for a known incoming invader. With the Sovereign of the Eventide suddenly coming, how would he watch idly as the legendary Desolate race figures setup the array?
The Sovereign of the Eventide flew straight at the former Desolate Queen. He knew that the God Confining Lock’s array disk was in the former Desolate Queen’s hands!
A squarish pale gold seal flew out of the Sovereign of the Eventide’s hands. The seal flickered with a black glow as it came suppressing down on the former Desolate Queen!
A blue beam flashed from beside the former Desolate Queen. Shepherd Boy had rushed forward to face the Sovereign of the Eventide!
Shepherd Boy was extremely talented, and his strength was one of the top few amongst the Desolate race. However, due to his bravery in the battle against the Black-armored Demon God a few months ago, he was greatly drained, so he was currently in a weak state.
“A pearl grain of rice dares to compete with a moon’s luminosity?”
The Sovereign of the Eventide sneered and with a revolution of the pale gold seal, it came smashing down on the Shepherd Boy.
Black Yuan Qi exploded out in all directions. The blue beam was shattered immediately as the Shepherd Boy grunted. He had been sent into retreat by the pale gold seal, and that strike had damaged his meridians.
The Sovereign of the Eventide was already the strongest warrior in this world, so Shepherd Boy was not his match, to begin with. Now, the Sovereign of the Eventide was at his peak, while Shepherd Boy was in a trough. In this waxing and waning situation, the difference between their strengths was even greater.
The Sovereign of the Eventide controlled the pale gold seal as he suppressed it downwards like a mountain. He aimed it at the Shepherd Boy’s head. He had already decided on fleeing into the 12 Empyrean Heavens, so he did not mind a deadly feud with the Desolate race. If killing all the legendary Desolate race figures allowed him to obtain the Sacred Spirit’s corpse, he would choose to do so without hesitation. As for when the Black-armored Demon God appeared once again, the Sovereign of the Eventide couldn’t even be bothered if there was anyone who could resist him.
Seeing the pale gold seal about to smash downwards, with Shepherd Boy’s life on the line, the legendary Desolate race figures felt their hearts tightened. The former Desolate Queen waved her hands, and out of the sleeves of her robe, a squarish array disk flew out. It was the God Confining Lock array.
At that moment, the array disk flashed with golden beams of light. The array disk flew up to the Sovereign of the Eventide’s head and the other legendary Desolate race figures had flown at the Sovereign of the Eventide, with great teamwork. They were already prepared to work alongside the effects of the array disk to seal the Sovereign of the Eventide.
If the Sovereign of the Eventide carried on attacking Shepherd Boy, it was very likely that he would be sealed to death by the God Confining Lock.
“Oh? The array was set up so fast?”
The Sovereign of the Eventide frowned. Of course, he wouldn’t exchange his life for the Shepherd Boy’s life. At the same moment that the pale gold seal came crashing down, the Sovereign of the Eventide flew high up into the sky to escape the scope of the God Confining Lock array.
The pale gold seal slammed heavily into Shepherd Boy’s arm as he had crossed it in front of his chest to forcefully block the strike. Although it was a hasty blow, it had still fractured Shepherd Boy’s bones!
“I’ll spare your life temporarily!”
As he was afraid of the God Confining Lock, the Sovereign of the Eventide kept far away from it.
“Roar! Roar! Roar!”
The furious roars of primordial true spirits echoed from the Desolate race Palace’s surroundings. The primordial true spirits that protected the Desolate race Palace were rushing over!
Controlling desolate beasts was one of the most important battle techniques that the Desolate race had. Although these legendary Desolate race figures had suffered a drop in cultivation realms, the primordial true spirits would still remain a challenge for the Sovereign of the Eventide. Furthermore, with them about to finish setting up the God Confining Lock array, this made the Sovereign of the Eventide realize that he could not stay here for long.
“Fall of the Eternal Night!”
With a long hum from the Sovereign of the Eventide, black Yuan Qi surged out of his body, creating an explosive force field!
The sticky power of Darkness enveloped the remote mountains.
All the legendary Desolate race figures were enshrouded within.
Everyone felt alarmed. This was the Sovereign of the Eventide’s domain!
Warriors could use their energies to form a domain and demarcate a space. They would then become a master of that space.
As they were immersed in the Darkness, the legendary Desolate race figures felt an inexplicable sense of despair, like their souls would forever reside in Darkness.
In front of the Desolate race Palace, Jiang Xiaorou was enveloped in the Eternal Night domain. She used her bone staff to support her body. Her face turned pale as her soul sea felt a sharp pain. It was so unbearable that it nearly made her lose consciousness.
“Break the domain first!”
The former Desolate Queen shouted. The legendary Desolate race figures teamed up and they were about to break the Sovereign of the Eventide’s domain open.
At that moment, a raucous laughter came from the Sovereign of the Eventide amidst the Darkness. “I’ll leave a gift with you. See you later!”
