Outside the Setting Sun Plain, many people were watching this battle closely.
A lot of people believed that there was no need to predict how this battle would turn out, as they thought that the outcome had already been set in stone.
However, this didn’t prevent them from observing the battle enthusiastically. Based on what they saw, a battle of this magnitude would no doubt become a turning point for the entire world.
Thousands of miles away, the Edgeless Spiritual Master stood tall respectfully.
By his side were two old men around his age who were also staring intently in the direction of the Setting Sun Plain.
“There’s been no news, Master!” one of the old men whispered as he put down his communication device.
This man had once been the viceroy of the Grand Sky Military, one of the eight armies of the East. However, for the sake of his own cultivation, he had resigned from his post and focused on meditation so he could try and reach a higher realm.
Unfortunately, although he had a sufficient willpower and reasonable intellect, he had still found it difficult to reach the God realm.
Even so, his cultivation base was still considerably stronger than the cultivation bases of the viceroys of the eight armies of the East.
The Edgeless Spiritual Master nodded. Although he had already become a god-grade entity, he couldn’t currently sense any auras. The Da Alliance satellites weren’t showing anything either, so nothing seemed to be wrong.
“Luo Yunyang will definitely die!” the other disciple said coldly as he stared at the sphere of azure blue light shrouding the area.
The Edgeless Spiritual Master remained silent. He was slightly unhappy with this disciple’s unhesitating analysis. There were always some variables in every matter. What right did he have to reach a conclusion before this was over?
However, deep down he reckoned that the disciple was right. This battle array had been too strong after all.
Before this operation, the Edgeless Spiritual Master had also received an invitation that he had declined.
The reason he had declined wasn’t because he didn’t have confidence in this operation, but because he wasn’t willing to participate in this sort of matter.
He knew that Luo Yunyang was being accused wrongly, but given the massive earth-shaking might before him, the only decision he could ultimately make was to decline and inform the other party that he wouldn’t interfere with any of their operations.
This also meant that he wouldn’t disclose any of this information to Luo Yunyang.
The person who had invited him had been an old friend of his for many years. However, his reaction to the Edgeless Spiritual Master’s attitude had been disdainful.
He had not even spared a thought for the Edgeless Spiritual Master. He had just haughtily mouthed, “Doesn’t matter!”
His answer had naturally implied that he thought nothing of the Edgeless Spiritual Master’s decision and that the operation would be successful with or without his participation.
The Edgeless Spiritual Master wasn’t that important, so he shouldn’t think so highly of himself!
Although these words had been undeniably hurtful, the Edgeless Spiritual Master knew that this was the truth. Furthermore, during their side operation, he had discovered that Luo Yunyang was like a wild beast being forced into dire straits by a wise group of hunters.
He already had nowhere to go!
“Anyone who stands out gets cut down!”
The Edgeless Spiritual Master lamented faintly with a sorrowful look in his eyes. Only he knew how he felt.
The two old men standing by him were also silent. As they sensed their master’s mood, the same sort of emotions started to well in their hearts.
“Master, perhaps” The old man who had once held a high position in the eight armies of the East hesitated. “Perhaps he might break the encirclement!”
The Edgeless Spiritual Master nodded, but didn’t speak. He suddenly turned his eyes in the direction where the decisive battle of the Setting Sun Plain was taking place.
A blood-red sun was rising from that expanse of land. The instant this sun shone in his eyes, it made him feel immense fear.
It even made him feel that he was negligible in comparison. An attack of this magnitude could
When the sun rose, the light that had originally sealed the Setting Sun Plain vanished completely.
The two satellites up in space that had been locked on the Setting Sun Plain started to work frantically again, transmitting the images recorded to wherever the top brass of the Da Alliance were situated at.
Mei’ya City, the Free Cities, Shen’du, Chang’an
This was a battle that would determine the direction the Da Alliance would take, so even though many people believed that the outcome had already been decided, some people were still watching the footage, waiting for the result of this fight.
The blood-red sun was shining high.
In Shen’du, Jin Zaitian rushed before the screen immediately. Below the sun, on the ruined Setting Sun Plain was the hurt, desolate figure of Xiao Luoye!
Jin Zaitian knew Xiao Luoye, as the two of them had met once before. In Jin Zaitian’s opinion, Xiao Luoye would forever be a godly person who seemed to have everything in the palm of his hand.
This time, Xiao Luoye had tried to force Luo Yunyang into dire straits and strengthen the Martial God’s position.
When Luo Yunyang had been surrounded, Xiao Luoye’s reputation had skyrocketed.
The top brass had practically decided that even if one could offend the Martial God, one must absolutely not offend Xiao Luoye.
Even Jin Zaitian considered Xiao Luoye the powerhouse he had the most misgivings about.
However, it was Xiao Luoye who had unexpectedly fallen into dire straits.
His torn-up body already made it very difficult to recognize him. However, as Jin Zaitian watched Luo Yunyang stand tall while Xiao Luoye trembled on the ground, he felt his heart bleed.
Approximately half of the Da Alliance’s god-grade powerhouses had fallen.
The Da Alliance’s strength, which had been accumulated over so many years, had decreased by half in just a short period of time. The reason for all this was the young man on the screen.
He could no longer say that this young man was wrong. After all, living on was a fundamental right every person needed to have, Luo Yunyang especially so. Under the circumstances, he had an even greater right to live.
“Luo Yunyang I never imagined this!” Xiao Luoye stared at Luo Yunyang, unaware that the whole world was watching.
He just glanced at Luo Yunyang arrogantly, with a calm and indifferent attitude.
A flicker of killing intent flashed across Luo Yunyang’s eyes as he stared at Xiao Luoye. Over the past few days, he had thoroughly understood what it meant to be utterly isolated.
The person who had forced him into this situation was this man!
“Your family is in my hands!” Xiao Luoye said calmly. “If news of my death is transmitted, they will meet me in hell.”
Luo Yunyang’s lips curled up as he stared at the sinister Xiao Luoye. He chuckled, as if nothing had happened. “He he You can’t capture my family,” Luo Yunyang said with extreme certainty.
Xiao Luoye flashed him a faint smile as an exquisite communication device appeared in his hands.
“If you think that Jin Zaitian and the others can protect your family, you are wrong. I have dispatched a god-grade powerhouse. You must have probably heard of the Lightning God. He has a strong cultivation base and supreme speed. You’ve surprised me greatly. I lost this time, so let me go get the Lightning God and return your family.”
As he spoke, Xiao Luoye made a call on his communication device. However, no sound was heard.
Even falling leaves wouldn’t escape the detection of a god-grade powerhouse, let alone a ringing communication device on their body.
If there was no response, then this communication device must have probably been destroyed. The most plausible reason was that this god-grade powerhouse no longer existed.
Xiao Luoye looked shocked. Although he didn’t really care about the lives and deaths of others, he was extremely worried about his own fate.
“The Lightning God”
“The Lightning God must already be dead.” Luo Yunyang clasped his hands behind his back as he strode over towards Xiao Luoye leisurely. “So now you can die as well!”
As he spoke, Luo Yunyang’s palms slowly descended. If these palms struck, Xiao Luoye would be completely obliterated.
Xiao Luoye’s expression was terrified. The fear in his heart had already reached its peak.
He had forgotten how many years it had been since he had last experienced such a threat to his life.
Although he wanted to resist, his remaining arm was already broken. He simply didn’t have the ability to face Luo Yunyang right now.
Furthermore, the gulf between him and Luo Yunyang was just too wide.
Time and space seemed to pause as he waited for his imminent death. When time seemed to stop, an arm made of earth slowly extended from where Xiao Luoye was sitting and smashed against Luo Yunyang’s palm, which had been sweeping in Xiao Luoye’s direction.
This arm had appeared strangely, without form or sound, but at exactly the right time.
Its appearance astonished the people watching through the feeds of the satellites. Even some top martial grandmasters were confused.
Why had such a thing happened? The arm, which had appeared in the blink of an eye, was an earthen arm of congealed soil and dirt that thwarted Luo Yunyang’s attack.
How could this be?
The earthen arm crumbled in the air, but Luo Yunyang’s attack had already been ruined. Although Xiao Luoye’s face was covered in a thick layer of soil and ash, he looked at the sky and laughed heartily.
“Ha ha ha ha Ha ha ha ha Ha ha ha”
Xiao Luoye laughed wildly, as though he was hysterical. There were even tears flowing down his cheeks as he roared with laughter.
“The Heart of the Earth was successful! It finally succeeded!” Xiao Luoye roared loudly as he got to his feet wobblily.
Suddenly, a figure appeared on the ground. Although the body of this figure was the color of soil, he stood there like a godly emperor.
“Let’s end this now. Shall we?”
