1774 The Prowess of the Strongest Otherworldly Demon Emperor
The grudges between the Otherworldly Demonic Tribe and mankind had continued for tens of thousands of years.
Be it the Otherworldly Demons or humans, most of them knew of kin and friends who had been slaughtered in cold blood by the other party. It was a grudge that ran so deep that there was no way that it could be resolved with simple words or sheer compassion.
It had not been easy for them to corner the highest leader of the Otherworldly Demonic Tribe, so there was no way that they could let go of this opportunity to bring him down!
Sovereign Chen Yong understood this as well, so he was not surprised by the reaction of the Ancient Sages of the Master Teacher Continent. Instead, he lowered his gaze specifically to Zhang Hongtian and asked, "What about you?"
"Our Zhang Clan has fought with the Otherworldly Demonic Tribe for countless years. My father, grandfather, and many generations of ancestors have lost their lives under the blades of the Otherworldly Demonic Tribe. The hands of the Otherworldly Demonic Tribe are drenched in the blood of our Zhang Clan. In my lifetime, I have always looked down on dishonorable scum who gang up on others. However, this is no fair duel but a battle for vengeance! I believe that not even Kong shi would disagree with our actions!" Zhang Hongtian roared as he drew his sword and gazed at the towering silhouette above him.
Hearing that even Zhang Hongtian was going to join in the battle, Zhang Xuan could not help but exclaim, "Old Ancestor Hongtian!"
Completely surrounded by enemies and the blueprint, it would be impossible for even the almighty Sovereign Chen Yong to escape from such a situation.
He did not harbor any goodwill toward the Otherworldly Demonic Tribe, but Wu Chen had been with him for a very long time. He had felt betrayed when he found out who Wu Chen was, but he could not accept seeing the other party lynched by the crowd.
Knowing what Zhang Xuan was going to say, Zhang Hongtian waved his hand decisively. "Don't waste your compassion on the Otherworldly Demonic Tribe. This is a luxury that we cannot afford!"
It was not to say that the Otherworldly Demons were absolutely evil, but the difference in their stances made it impossible for them to co-exist. More than a fight for supremacy, this was a fight for survival.
Without Sovereign Chen Yong, the Otherworldly Demonic Tribe would be like a pile of scattered sand. Their prowess would be significantly lowered, and they would be powerless against mankind.
This was the perfect moment to get rid of the threat that had loomed over them for many years!
It was precisely due to this that the Hundred Schools of Philosophers had willingly mobilized so many Ancient Sages, such that even the fight for the Great Codex of Spring and Autumn was a secondary concern to them.
"Very well. What about the rest of you?"
Seeing that the three powers had chosen to collaborate against him, Sovereign Chen Yong finally laid his gaze upon the Beast Tribe.
"We don't intend to get involved in this conflict. Our aim lies only with the Great Codex of Spring and Autumn!" the White Overlord replied coldly.
"Back away if you don't intend to get involved in this conflict. My saber has no eyes to care for you lot. Remain in the sphere of battle and risk losing your life!" Sovereign Chen Yong sneered coldly.
He flicked the saber in his hand, and a choking sound echoed in the air. Following which, a powerful aura burst forth from him, leaving the crowd feeling as if an endless abyss was standing before them.
Disguised as Wu Chen, he had only been able to tap into the strength that master teachers were able to utilize. However, having reverted back to his original form, he was finally able to use the Slaughter of Zhenqi of the Otherworldly Demonic Tribe, drastically raising his fighting prowess.
Sensing that Wu Chen's aura was about to reach its peak, Ancient Sage Yan Qing knew that it would be even more difficult to kill him if they continued dawdling. Thus, he raised the halberd in the hand and charged forward.
Bo Yu's phantasmagoric claws sliced apart space to tear everything before him.
The offense of the two powerful experts warped into two black and white streaks, darting through the air as if a comet racing across the sky.
"Show me what you're capable of!" Sovereign Chen Yong roared as he raised his saber and sliced across the air.
A black rift appeared in the space sealed by the blueprint and collided with the two incoming attacks. As if struck by a powerful swing of a bat, both the halberd and the claws were sent flying into the distance.
Sovereign Chen Yong made use of this opportunity to press on. With another swing of his saber, he successfully kept the attacks of the other Ancient Sages at bay before swiftly flitting forward in an attempt to decapitate Ancient Sage Yan Qing.
This attack wielded such compelling strength that not even the Blood Reincarnation realm Ancient Sage Yan Qing was able to avoid it.
Just as death was about to fall upon the strongest expert of the Hundred Schools of Philosophers, a sword flashed through the air, surpassing the limitations of time and space and appearing in an instant.
If Sovereign Chen Yong continued his attack, even if he succeeded in killing Ancient Sage Yan Qing, he would also sustain severe injuries in the process of doing so. Thus, he changed the trajectory of his saber to defend against the incoming attack.
Ding ding ding ding!
The sound of metallic reverberations echoed loudly in the air. Zhang Hongtian's movements were sharp but fluid. As if a complex dance, his movements appeared to be unintentional and changed swiftly, making it hard for one to read the trajectory of his attacks. At that moment, he felt like a Sword Immortal.
This was the first time that Zhang Xuan had witnessed a battle of such caliber, and he could not help but swallow a mouthful of saliva.
As expected of the strongest experts of the Master Teacher Continent, every single of their attacks seemed to sway the very laws of the world. It was fortunate that he was a safe distance away, or else he could have very well been torn to shreds.
Sovereign Chen Yong's strength had far surpassed his imagination. Despite being severely outnumbered, his movements remained calm and calculated. There was not the slightest hint of panic in his actions.
The battle grew more and more intense, and finally, with a deep moan, a silhouette plummeted from the air.
An Ancient Sage had fallen!
"It's a Great Philosopher realm Otherworldly Demon…"
Zhang Xuan recognized the corpse. He was one of Old Geezer Yu's subordinates, an Ancient Sage 2-dan Otherworldly Demon.
"This is good…"
Knowing that a corpse of that level was hard to come by, Zhang Xuan stepped forward to flick it up using the Dragonbone Divine Spear.
Into his storage ring the corpse went!
Barely after collecting the corpse, an Ancient Sage from the Hundred Schools of Philosophers met his end and plummeted to the ground.
Shortly after, an expert of the Master Teacher Pavilion fell as well.Find authorized novels in Webnovel，faster updates, better experience，Please click www.webnovel.com for visiting.
Zhang Xuan had no hesitation collecting the corpses of Otherworldly Demons, but he was unwilling to touch the corpses of those from the Hundred Schools of Philosophers and the Master Teacher Continent.
After all, he was a master teacher himself, so the least he could do was respect his peers.
That being said, while he did not collect their corpses, he did manage to collect the Ancient Sage blood that poured down throughout the course of the battle.
As the battle grew more and more intense, the rate at which the Ancient Sages were dying grew faster and faster.
In less than ten minutes, less than half of the Ancient Sages who had joined the fray remained standing.
However, Sovereign Chen Yong had also sustained severe injuries. Blood was dripping down his arm, and his face had turned rather pale.
Ancient Sage Yan Qing and Zhang Hongtian also had glaring wounds on them, and they were panting heavily. They were not in a good condition at all.
On the contrary, it was Old Geezer Yu who had sustained the lightest injuries.
It was not that he was the strongest of the three, but being the most cunning one, he had hidden from all of the frontal attacks coming from Sovereign Chen Yong, using the other two as a shield.
"As expected of the number one expert from the Otherworldly Demonic Tribe. You were able to bring so many of us down despite facing all of us simultaneously," Zhang Hongtian remarked with a hint of awe in his voice.
He had thought that he could already be considered one of the strongest experts in the world, but who could have known that there would be someone who was so much stronger than him existent in the world?
"You aren't weak either. But if that's all you have, your wish to claim my life today is nothing more than wishful thinking!" Sovereign Chen Yong replied imposingly with his saber in hand.
"Humph! Even at the cost of my life, I'll drag you into the grave!" Zhang Hongtian spat coldly.
"Give it a try then!" Sovereign Chen Yong scoffed.
He raised his saber to continue the battle, but all of a sudden, the entire blueprint around them start shaking intensely.
Hong long long!
The world seemed to be slowly unraveling as a ray of white light pierced through the blueprint. Gradually, a gigantic alter flickered into appearance.
The light was surging toward Luo Ruoxin, who was in the midst of assimilating the Great Codex of Spring and Autumn.
"It's a success!" Sovereign Chen Yong's eyes lit up in agitation.
The reason that he had chosen to stay behind and fight was to prepare this artifact in order to help Luo Ruoxin. Seeing that the plan had finally succeeded, he could not curb his excitement any longer.
As the light from the altar shone upon Luo Ruoxin, it seemed like the bottleneck on her Ancient Sage cultivation had been released once more. Tremendous energy coursed through her body like rapid tides as she grew stronger and stronger.
Under the assault of such imposing strength, the Great Codex of Spring and Autumn was finally tamed.
