Chapter 558 - Emperor of Death
“…the owner of this Token of Death comes from one of the Eight Great God Eyes….”
Before his sentence finished, Grandmaster Yin Kong’s life came to an end.
His body fell to the ground, dead, yet the sensation of danger only increased.
The “Death” on the token locked on to Zhao Feng and released an aura of Death.
Zhao Feng’s consciousness seemed to become frozen. In this instant, he felt as if his life was no longer controlled by himself anymore.
The three Void God Realms exclaimed as they stared at the Token of Death. Even they were shocked by it and took in cold breaths.
“It’s the Token of Death! It’s actually the Token of Death!”
The golden skeleton exclaimed in fear and panic. Its eyes were full of wariness and respect as it looked at the Token of Death.
“Token of Death!”
The three Void God Realm Kings and some Sovereigns present had heard of its legend.
At this moment, within the Purple Saint Ruins, an aura of Death had locked on to Zhao Feng and he felt like he could no longer control his body.
Peng! Peng! Peng! Peng!
The God’s Spiritual Eye thumped harder than ever before. The aura from the Token of Death gave the God’s Spiritual Eye a familiar yet strange feeling.
Suddenly, the Token of Death gave off a black light that was hundreds of times stronger than before, and a black eye appeared on the token. The token seemed to become a gateway to a world of pure Death.
“Measly being, I shall take away your ability to live.”
The black eye locked on to Zhao Feng. He hiccupped and felt as if his soul was facing an absolute order.
In that instant, his breathing stopped. His life seemed to have reached the end of its road from the manipulation of a certain force.
“The Eye of Death! One of the Eight Great God Eyes!”
“That token indeed represents the Eye of Death. That means its owner should be the Emperor of Death.”
The three sects’ experts broke out into discussion, and all three Void God Realms held their breath as they stared at the Eye of Death.
“Zhao Feng, watch out! This is probably one of the descendants of the Eye of Death.”
The Purple Saint Partial Spirit’s voice was full of fear and panic.
Eye of Death.
Zhao Feng and the skeletal Division Leader were unable to move, and they felt as if they had lost the ability to live.
“One of the Eight Great God Eyes, the Eye of Death?”
Zhao Feng’s heart shook, and no matter how hard he struggled, he wasn’t able to escape the aura of Death. Putting him aside, even the skeletal Division Leader was kneeling on the ground and trembling.
“Looks like Zhao Feng’s definitely dead. The Eye of Death controls the Laws of Death.”
The skeletal Division Leader didn’t even dare to breathe.
The Eye of Death’s target was Zhao Feng. If it did something that caused the eye to be annoyed, maybe the eye would take its life as well.
A whirlpool started to spin within the Eye of Death.
Zhao Feng’s body fell, and he felt his consciousness being pulled by an unstoppable power.
Zhao Feng used his will to block the eye’s power, but it wasn’t enough, and his soul was being dragged toward the Eye of Death.
In this moment, Zhao Feng felt that his soul had left his body. The soul was the center of a living being.
If the soul of a Void God Realm was destroyed, they would die as well.
Destroying the soul meant absolute death, and the Eye of Death was targeting the soul.
The skeletal Division Leader yelled in fear. Because it was so close to Zhao Feng, the aura of Death had also somewhat come into contact with it, so its consciousness was trying to escape its body as well.
No matter how the skeletal Division Leader struggled, it was useless.
“Hahaha… that brat’s dead!”
“No matter how smart he is, he can’t escape.”
The experts watching in the outside world were happy.
“The Token of Death comes from the old and mysterious Emperor of Death. Once it’s used, it will cause the Emperor of Death’s will and power to pass through space.”
The Saint Moon Aunt Goddess murmured.
“Zhe zhe, even normal Void God Realms wouldn’t be able to block that power easily. As for those below the Void God Realm, they will certainly die.”
The golden skeleton gloated.
On the third floor of the Purple Saint Treasured Palace.
“Senior Purple Spirit, please save Brother Zhao Feng.”
Zhao Yufei begged.
“I might’ve been able to suppress the Emperor of Death if I was at my peak, but I’m just a spirit now. Even if I tried, I would only have a 30-40% chance of stopping it, and even then, I will die.”
The Purple Saint Partial Spirit shook her head bitterly. Once she died, the Purple Saint Ruins would have no owner and start to crumble.
At that time, the three sects would be able to invade the ruins. Zhao Feng and Zhao Yufei still wouldn’t be able to escape death. Therefore, the Purple Saint Partial Spirit couldn’t do anything.
“Brother Zhao Feng….”
Zhao Yufei’s eyes started to become teary, but she had a glimmer of hope as she remembered Zhao Feng’s tendency to create miracles.
At the same time, Zhao Feng was in a life-or-death situation.
His soul and consciousness were about to leave his body.
“No, no, no!”
Zhao Feng struggled and used all his power to resist it.
However, his consciousness was still being dragged out. If his cultivation had reached the Void God Realm, he would see that a spiritual figure in the shape of himself was slowly being pulled out of his body.
Once the soul was fully pulled out, it would be the same as taking away his life.
His resistance was futile.
As half of his soul was dragged out, suddenly:
Peng! Peng! Peng! Peng!
Zhao Feng’s left eye started acting up, as if it was being pulled by something. If one looked closely, Zhao Feng’s left eye was bulging out a little.
The aura of Death was pulling Zhao Feng’s God’s Spiritual Eye as well as his soul.
“So that’s how it is.”
Zhao Feng grabbed onto the last rope to salvation – the God’s Spiritual Eye.
After many years of being merged together, the God’s Spiritual Eye was one with Zhao Feng.
That meant that, if the Eye of Death wanted to take Zhao Feng’s soul away, it would also need to pull out the God’s Spiritual Eye.
However, how could the God’s Spiritual Eye let that happen?
Peng! Peng! Peng! Peng!
The God’s Spiritual Eye seemed to awaken as it radiated an ancient and supreme aura.
Zhao Feng instantly felt as if he had become a god. His every thought and action caused the sun and moon to shake.
“An aura from the ancient era…!”
The Purple Saint Partial Spirit exclaimed.
In that instant, she felt the entire Purple Saint Ruins tremble. Nothing could stop from shaking against this ancient aura.
The Eye of Death was puzzled.
The Token of Death then took on the full force of the mysterious ancient aura.
The Token of Death started to crack, and the Eye of Death dimmed and revealed a look of shock.
“God… God’s Eye!!!?? The aura of a God’s Eye!!!”
The Token of Death exclaimed throughout the soul dimension.
None of the experts in the outside world heard that voice.
“What’s going on?”
The three Void God Realms were all surprised.
The Eye of Death faced a powerful resistance, and this resistance came from Zhao Feng’s God’s Spiritual Eye.
“God’s Eye? Zhao Feng’s left eye is a God’s Eye!!?”
The Purple Saint Partial Spirit couldn’t believe it.
Even the Emperor of Death’s Eye of Death couldn’t be called a “God’s Eye.”
Only the Eight Great God Eyes could be called “God Eyes.”
For example, the Eye of Rebirth, the Eye of Space, or the Eye of Death.
They all had descendants with their bloodlines, such as the Emperor of Death. However, those with actual God Eyes were unique in the world.
“…but Zhao Feng’s eye doesn’t seem to be any of the Eight Great God Eyes.”
The Purple Saint Partial Spirit shook her head, but that sentence had come from the Emperor of Death himself, a descendant of the Eye of Death. Being one of the descendants of an actual God Eye, the Emperor of Death was extremely sensitive to the aura of God Eyes.
“Not any of the Eight Great God Eyes. Could this be the ninth God Eye that’s just awakened?”
The light from the Token of Death started to fade.
The black Eye of Death gazed at Zhao Feng in deep thought.
Under the ancient aura of the God’s Spiritual Eye, the Token of Death cracked and turned into a pile of dust.
“Death will chase you until the end.”
A cold voice resounded across Zhao Feng’s mind the instant the token shattered.
The skeletal Division Leader landed on the ground and Zhao Feng remained motionless. His God’s Spiritual Eye kept contracting and expanding, and there was a wisp of the ancient aura that didn’t immediately disappear.
