Volume 18 – Exalted Celestial Mountain – Chapter 11 – Massacre
Translated by: Pumpkin
Edited by: Robin
On the water screen above the Inner Lake of the Purple Mystic Mansion, the Asura Godking and the other Godkings led by the Eight Great Sage Emperors were confronting one another. A battle could occur at any moment!
Qin Feng, Qin Zheng, Qin De, Feng Yuzi and the rest of them all held their breaths.
“The might of the Eight Great Sage Emperors joining hands is extremely terrifying.” Qin Yu was also a bit curious as to what this Asura Godking had as his trump card. For him to be willing to fight these Eight Great Sage Emperors head on, could it be that he truly has a trump card that can break through the blockade of the Eight Great Sage Emperors?
“Little An, Sun Lian, Little Lian, the three of you, listen carefully. When I start fighting, you three are to run as far away as you possibly can. Hide yourselves in a certain corner of the Exalted Celestial Mountain, make sure to not show yourselves! Also, do not attack anyone. Understand?” The Asura Godking Luo Fan held the Blood Ruler in his hand as he said to them through Divine Awareness Voice Transmission.
Sun Lian, An Xun and Liu Lian all displayed a worried expression. Merely, the decision of the Asura Godking was something that no one could change. Furthermore, if they were to think about it carefully, the three of them were able to determine what their big brother had in his mind.
“As long as the three of you don’t attack them first, those Godkings won’t recklessly risk their own lives and attack you. As for them wanting to handle me? Humph… after I obtained the Blood Ruler, I have yet to have an opportunity to truly kill others.” The corners of the Asura Godking’s lips were raised.
At this moment…
Zhou Huo, Jiang Fan, Duanmu Yun, Shentu Yan, Huangfu Yu, Tang Lan, Mu Qin and Putai Hong, these eight Sage Emperors moved out at the same time.
Of the Eight Great Sage Emperors, Zhou Huo, Jiang Fan and Duanmu Yun formed the ‘Three Abilities.’
[TL: Three Abilities, much like the Trinity, is a set of three which is composed of Heaven, Earth and Man.]
Huangfu Yu and the other four Sage Emperors just so happened to possess the power of the Five Elements. They formed a Five Elements Formation Array. The Five Sage Emperors led by Huangfu Yu, the spiritual pearls above their heads began to shine even more brightly. The five different kinds of Origin Energies began to fuse with each other, creating a complementary effect.
“Brother Huangfu, us three will block this Relief Sculpture Tunnel. The five of you can go and kill that Luo Fan.” Jiang Fan said directly. The combination of Jiang Fan, Duanmu Yun and Zhou Huo was able to block the Relief Sculpture Tunnel and make Luo Fan unable to enter!
Huangfu Yu, Tang Lan, Shentu Yan, Mu Qin and Putai Hong smiled confidently. In unity, the five of them charged towards the Asura Godking Luo Fan.
The combined might of the Five Sage Emperors, that held the power of the Five Elements, was so great that it was even more powerful than when the Six Great Sage Emperors joined hands against Qin Yu above the Southern Sea.
Facing the Five Great Sage Emperors rushing toward him, Luo Fan, like a sharp arrow, launched himself backwards. He actually did not even bother to take them on.
“Coward!” Huangfu Yu coldly shouted. He waved his hand…
A five colored ray of blade light was shot out from Huangfu Yu’s palm. This ray of five colored blade light immediately proceeded to chase after Luo Fan with an astonishing speed.
When Luo Fan’s flying trajectory changed, this five colored blade light followed. The five colored blade light was extremely fast. Luo Fan was standing on the Blood Ruler, his speed was naturally extremely fast. However, the five colored blade light was constantly getting closer to him.
Luo Fan suddenly did an arc in the middle of the air. He began to rush toward the ten plus Godkings in the distance. The expressions of the ten plus Godkings that were gathered there immediately took a huge change. In panic and chaos, they immediately began to run away. These Godkings were not familiar with one another nor did they possess a cooperation formation array technique. For them to gather together to face the Asura Godking, they would only be killed.
Seeing the Godkings running away in disarray, Luo Fan had a grin smile on his face. “Trying to run?” Standing on the Blood Ruler, his speed was much faster than ordinary Godkings. With a single turn, he closed in on the group of Godkings. And at this moment, the five colored blade light had also reached his body.
Luo Fan’s speed suddenly increased by a bit. At the same time, the Blood Ruler Life Sunderer appeared in his hand.
The Blood Ruler brazenly collided with the five colored blade light. At the moment of their collision, the five different Origin Energies within the five colored blade light immediately erupted! Merely, Luo Fan actually did not bother to block it head on. Instead, he tried to divert as much of the energy from the five colored blade light’s explosion to the side.
Like a blooming firework, the five colored Origin Energies started to fly toward the six closest Godkings that were running away.
“Ah!” The expressions of those Godkings immediately took a huge change. Right away, one by one, those Godkings began to use their abilities with their life on the line.
The sound of Origin Energies colliding with Grandmist Spiritual Treasures was heard. In an instant, blood had dyed the vast sky red. Meat and bones were flying all over. There were even Godkings falling down from the sky.
After the explosion.
Of the six Godkings, the three Godkings that were furthest away and the Godking that possessed relatively stronger power, were merely seriously injured and vomiting blood. As for the other two Godkings that were closer and weaker, they had been turned to tatters by the Five Origin Energies.
As for the Asura Godking Luo Fan.
Luo Fan possessed the Blood Ruler to weaken the attack, thus his body had only received a portion of the Origin Energies’ attack. On top of that, Luo Fan had a second-rate defensive Grandmist Spiritual Treasure. Thus, he barely sustained any damage from this attack.
“Not good.” Huangfu Yu’s expression turned ugly.
“Brother Huangfu, it would seem that it’s not suitable for us to use ranged attacks on this Luo Fan. He is capable of luring our attacks to the other Godkings and use it to attack them.” Mu Qin frowned and said.
They had not injured Luo Fan and had already mistakenly killed two Godkings.
If this continued, how many Godkings would die in order for them to kill Luo Fan?
“Ranged attacks possess less control and also less attack power. It’s better for us to fight him at a melee distance.” Huangfu Yu could only come to this decision.
There are certain situations where melee attacks give the biggest advantage in a fight. However, in other situations, ranged attacks might provide better advantages than melee.
Once they decided to go melee.
With the flying speed of the Sage Emperors, it was extremely difficult for them to catch up to Luo Fan who stood on the Blood Ruler.
“Haha, Huangfu Yu, Putai Hong, what are you all doing? Are you planning to admit defeat?” Standing on the Blood Ruler in the air, Luo Fan looked to the Five Great Sage Emperors and laughed.
Huangfu Yu and them remained silent.
“Brother Jiang Fan.” Huangfu Yu directly sent a Divine Awareness Voice Transmission to Jiang Fan. “We planned to fight him in melee range. Merely, in terms of speed, we might not be able to match this Luo Fan. Quickly arrange some Godkings to create a large formation to guard the Relief Sculpture Tunnel. Then the three of you can come over and join us in killing this Luo Fan. Our two groups of people shall join forces and pincer attack him. In this way… the effect would be a lot better.”
Jiang Fan immediately made his decision.
“Okay, I’ll immediately arrange that. You all, keep that Luo Fan busy for a while.”
Immediately after, Jiang Fan looked at the Godkings beside him. “Everyone, that Luo Fan is extremely cunning. Us three Sage Emperors are also going out to chase and kill him. However, this Relief Sculpture Tunnel, we have to leave it at your hands. I will now choose sixteen people to create a great formation array to defend this Relief Sculpture Tunnel. What does everyone think about this?”
While Jiang Fan was arranging for the sixteen Godkings to set up the great formation array, Huangfu Yu and them continued to chase after Luo Fan.
Streaking across the sky like a ray of light, Luo Fan charged into a Godking. It was the Jade Ripple Lake Tang Clan’s Tang Liu.
Seeing Luo Fan rushing toward him, Tang Liu’s complexion immediately turned pale. His speed was simply unable to compare to Luo Fan’s!
“Big sister!’ Tang Liu immediately cried out for help toward the Tang Clan’s Clan Leader… Southwest Sage Emperor Tang Lan. Merely, Tang Lan was currently in the Five Elements great formation array and was simply unable to reach him in time to save him.
“Second brother!’ Tang Lan’s expression also took a huge change.
“Woosh!’ At this moment, Huangfu Yu stopped regarding anything else. He immediately created three rays of five colored blade lights in succession.
Luo Fan merely sneered. Immediately after, the Blood Ruler in his hand streaked through the air and created a red ray of light. It ripped through space and slashed toward Tang Liu’s head.
When this Blood Ruler’s red ray of light approached him, Tang Liu felt as if his entire body was ‘fixed.’ He was unable to move at all and could only frighteningly watch as the Blood Ruler’s red ray of light slashed through his neck.
“No!!” Tang Lan snarled from the bottom of her heart.
However, it was all useless.
Tang Liu’s head tumbled down from his body like a ball. The True Spirit within Tang Liu’s soul had directly been attacked and shattered by the red ray of light.
Another Godking died!
Luo Fan’s speed was increased to the pinnacle. Following behind him were three rays of five colored blade light. Just like this, Luo Fan began to rush toward two Godkings not far from him. Seeing this scene, those two Godkings immediately scattered in shock and began flying toward two different directions.
Of the two Godkings, Luo Fan could only chase after a single one!
Without even bothering to think, Luo Fan began to chase after the Godking that belonged to the Eight Great Divine Families, of the Huangfu Clan, the Hundred Flowers Godking Huangfu Liuxiang. Earlier, Huangfu Liuxiang was chatting with a hidden Godking when the disaster befell her.
“This Devil, why is he chasing after me?” Alarmed, Huangfu Liuxiang was rapidly fleeing. The current her did not possess the slightest bit of calm at all. Faced with the Asura Godking, all she could do was run away. She did not even have the slightest intention of resisting.
Luo Fan frowned. “She’s running pretty fast.”
And at this moment, the three rays of five colored blade lights grew closer and closer to his body. If he did not block them now, then those three rays of five colored blade lights would reach his body.
Luo Fan suddenly shouted lowly and immediately…
The second level of the temporal laws, Time Stop!
The space had completely stopped. The Five Great Sage Emperors were stopped. Huangfu Liuxiang who was rapidly fleeing for her life was also stopped. The three rays of five colored blade light had also stopped. The only person that wasn’t stopped was Luo Fan himself. Luo Fan was still flying toward Huangfu Liuxiang.
The spiritual pearls above the heads of the Five Great Sage Emperors began to shine even greater. In merely an instant, the Time Stop was broken through. However, an instant was all that it took for Luo Fan to reach Huangfu Liuxiang.
After the Time Stop was broken through, the three rays of five colored blade lights continued to chase after Luo Fan.
Luo Fan held the Blood Ruler in his hand. Huangfu Liuxiang was only able to take out her cyan ribbon in time.
“Am I going to die?” Huangfu Liuxiang was reluctant to die. However, when faced with Luo Fan’s Blood Ruler, she simply did not have the ability to resist him at all.
A golden colored sword ray suddenly streaked across the vast sky and collided with the Blood Ruler that Luo Fan held in his hand, causing his attack to be a bit sluggish. This instant of time was sufficient for Huangfu Liuxiang to escape the incoming Blood Ruler strike.
“Big brother.” Huangfu Liuxiang looked at Huangfu Lei in the distance who had saved her life. She was extremely moved. Earlier, Huangfu Lei had shot out a sword ray. He was simply unable to reach them in time.
Luo Fan had a cold expression on his face. He had never been reluctant in killing members of the Eight Great Divine Families. The Blood Ruler in his hand was brandished once more.
“Truly annoying!” Luo Fan’s expression changed. The three rays of five colored blade lights was already near his body.
His body suddenly turned around. At the same time, he blocked the three rays of five colored blade lights with his Blood Ruler that he held. The three rays of five colored blade lights all exploded.
At this moment, Luo Fan was trying his hardest to stop the time.
Merely, the Origin Energy contained within the three rays of five colored blade lights were truly too powerful. Time Stop had only stopped the three rays of five colored blade lights from exploding for an instant before they continued onward with their explosions.
“Bang!’ The fierceness of the explosion had caused even the rocks of the Exalted Celestial Mountain to rupture. As for Luo Fan himself, because he managed to obtain a bit of time through his Time Stop, he was only lightly wounded.
An furious roar was heard. Luo Fan’s complexion changed.
“Pincer attack?” Luo Fan had already noticed a long dragon composed of electric snakes, and a mix of black and white colors flying towards him.
That was the combined attack of Zhou Huo, Jiang Fan and Duanmu Yun. The might of this attack was something that Luo Fan did not dare to test for himself.
“The Relief Sculpture Tunnel is still blocked.” Luo Fan immediately discovered the great formation array formed by the sixteen Godkings that had tightly sealed the Relief Sculpture Tunnel’s entrance.
Earlier, when he was fighting against Five Sage Emperors, Luo Fan was still in a relatively relaxed position.
However, once the Eight Sage Emperors separated into two groups to pincer attack him, Luo Fan would truly be put in a disastrous state!
“Haha~~~ it seemed that you all have forgotten that I, Luo Fan, before ascending to the Divine Realm, was a cultivator of the Asura Devil Path!” Luo Fan’s savage and reckless laughter sounded. His laughter was filled with the intention to kill.
Killing intent had flooded Luo Fan’s chest. His path to massacre had started!
Standing on the Blood Ruler, Luo Fan’s figure started to move strangely. His speed had even reached his peak. The Eight Great Sage Emperor’s two groups continued to crisscross and chase after Luo Fan.
Luo Fan crisscrossed through a Godking. That Godking’s body was immediately split into four pieces and fell from the sky.
As for the price of that attack, it was that Luo Fan had received another attack from the Eight Great Sage Emperors. Merely, Luo Fan, by relying on his Time Stop, his second-rate defensive Grandmist Spiritual Treasure and canceling out the might of the attack with his Blood Ruler, only received minor injuries from each encounter.
Luo Fan once against streaked through the side of two Godkings. One Godking’s body was immediately split open and turned into blood mist. As for the other Godking, he vomited a mouthful of blood. He was lucky enough to survive.
“Pff!” Luo Fan also vomited blood.
Every single time, he would desperately massacre Godkings while being attacked by the Eight Great Sage Emperors. Luo Fan was literally walking a tightrope. He himself had sustained heavy injuries by now.
“It’s about time.” Luo Fan looked at the Eight Sage Emperors chasing to kill him from behind. He still had a light smile on his face. All that had occurred was within his control.
Suddenly, the entire Exalted Celestial Mountain started to slightly tremble. At the same time, cyan light from the sky illuminated the entire mountain. The Exalted Celestial Mountain was immediately dyed cyan in color.
