In the Blood Spirit Sky, the Bloody Massacre Path Master and everyone else stood outside the secret treasury.
They were all waiting anxiously for Luo Yunyang to exit it.
The reason they were doing this was simple. They had just seen a video clip regarding the Primeval Underworld Monarch.
“Three Thousand Swords Of Bloodied Seas… How is that even possible?” the Deep Earth Path Master said in disbelief.
As he spoke, several streaks of blood-colored rays appeared in the void of the display. Within these blood-colored rays were many blood-colored swords.
This was a battle between the Primeval Underworld Monarch and another Monarch. During the battle, the other Monarch definitely didn’t hold back. He motioned with both his hands and formed a giant crushing millstone.
The Primeval Underworld Monarch wedged in between the millstone transformed himself into a Bloody Ray. Three thousand sword-lights immediately began forming a circular shape as they were moving at a high speed.
The crushing millstone did not seem to have any dominance against the sword-lights. In fact, anyone watching would think that the millstone was suppressed by the sword-lights.
The Bloody Massacre Path Master and everyone else thought that every single sword-light seemed to conceal some sort of supremacy, and every single sword-light made them feel equally helpless.
During this exchange of blows, they all felt as though they were insignificant individuals.
“The Primeval Underworld Monarch is a rare genius from the Purgatory that only appears once in many years. If he’s reached such a level, he must naturally have been able to shorten the learning curve involved by successfully mastering the Three Thousand Swords Of Bloodied Seas,” said the Acute Metal Path Master.
The Acute Metal Path Master eyed the Bloody Massacre Path Master and said, “Even if we combined the nine Sky Books to form one, our help to Luo Yunyang would perhaps still be insignificant.”
The Bloody Massacre Path Master nodded. “Yes, our Sky Books are still far from perfect. They are definitely no match for the Three Thousand Swords Of Bloodied Seas! However, I think that Luo Yunyang should have some confidence in himself. He isn’t a reckless individual after all!”
The Fiery Sun Path Master surveyed his surroundings before saying, “Yunyang should have confidence in the Primeval Underworld Monarch, who has yet to master the Three Thousand Swords Of Bloodied Seas.”
“This move has raised him up to this high level! Given his current cultivation base, Luo Yunyang is inferior to the Primeval Underworld Monarch. Thanks to the Three Thousand Swords Of Bloodied Seas, Yunyang’s chances of victory are very slim,” said the Fiery Sun Path Master solemnly.
“That is why we have to let Yunyang use the Nine-Crystal Transformation Stone this time!”
When the Fiery Sun Path Master said that, everyone around him grew quiet. The Nine Path Masters were the leaders of the Human Tribe. Therefore, they would always think through things from the most dangerous perspectives.
They knew that there was definitely something fishy about the plans of the Demigod Tribe. However, they felt that they did not have much of a choice.
“Although the Nine-Crystal Transformation Stone would allow Yunyang to transform himself completely, the Demigod Tribe has now changed its mind. It insists that Yunyang kneels over and begs them before they allow him to integrate the Nine-Crystal Transformation Stone.”
“Based on my understanding of Yunyang, he would rather go to battle and die than kneel before them. They are far too naive if they actually think that he would come begging at their door,” the Acute Metal Path Master said coldly.
Although the Bloody Massacre Path Master did not say anything, he agreed with these words deep down.
The Autumn Water Path Master did not complete her sentence. Even though she wanted to, she was feeling extremely apprehensive about the Demigod Tribe.
The Demigod Tribe, which oversaw the entire Divine Union, had so much power that it could oppress the entire second-tier Human Tribe just by raising a finger.
“Luo Yunyang could have possibly found a solution thanks to the Celestial World Supremacy.” The Fiery Sun Path Master mulled this over for a bit before speaking out.
Eventually, all discussions died, as they all knew that these comments would ultimately lead to nothing.
After all, the only one who was able to decide was Luo Yunyang himself.
One hour, two hours, three hours passed…
After an unknown length of time, a shadow began walking out of the depths of the secret realm. Its speed wasn’t fast, yet the Bloody Massacre Path Master and the others felt as though this shadow didn’t even exist.
This feeling was extremely mysterious and indescribable. However, they knew that there was not something wrong with what they sensed. This was just a change of source laws.
The presence of a Galaxy-Grade martialist could affect the surrounding Origin Source Laws, while a Celestial Domain-Grade martialist could even use their own path to replace the surrounding source laws.
Although none of the people present were at the Celestial Domain Grade, they could feel the similarities between Luo Yunyang, who was walking out, and the other Celestial Domain-Grade martialists they had encountered.
The Nine Path Masters exchanged glances and saw looks of triumphant celebration in each other’s eyes. Luo Yunyang’s progress meant that he was yet another step closer to victory.
“How is the secret training going, Yunyang?” the Bloody Massacre Path Master asked earnestly.
“Almost there!” Luo Yunyang smiled.
These casual words alone made the Bloody Massacre Path Master feel extremely pleased. Luo Yunyang had always been a careful, meticulous person. He would never make empty promises regarding anything unless he had complete confidence in his abilities.
The Bloody Massacre Path Master was able to push aside the anxiety in his heart. Although Luo Yunyang was still at the pinnacle of the Nebula Grade and had yet to enter the Galaxy Grade, he had great confidence in him.
“Yunyang, this is leaked video footage from the Purgatory. Have a look at it.” The Bloody Massacre Path Master opened the 30-second footage and handed it over for him to see.
It was a video of the Three Thousand Swords and the Giant Ice-Fire Millstone!
Luo Yunyang’s eyes lit up while he watched the exchange silently.
While he walked out of seclusion, many martialists from the Human Tribe’s Nine Paths watched. There didn’t seem to be much of a difference in his appearance.
“Yunyang, an order came from the Bloody Space River yesterday, stating that you have to leave this place in three days max,” the Bloody Massacre Path Master said as he handed a document that had been endorsed with the seal of the Great Obscured Emperor Lord.
The Great Obscured Emperor Lord, who stood guard over the Bloody Space River, had sent Luo Yunyang a piece of Nine-Crystal Transformation Stone.
Luo Yunyang did not say anything. He merely calculated the time required to set off for the Bloody Space River and realized that there wasn’t much time left.
“Various Path Masters, the envoy from the Demigod Tribe is here. Let Luo… Let His Highness Luo Yunyang go out and welcome him.” A Bloody Massacre Path Disciple’s respectful voice came from outside.
The Bloody Massacre Path Master’s expression changed when he heard this. He got up quickly and prepared to welcome the guest.
Luo Yunyang waved at the Bloody Massacre Path Master before he immediately set his eyes on the disciple and said, “What else did they say?”
“They have brought the item you wanted the most. If you don’t welcome them, then they are going to leave for good. It would be too late, even if you changed your mind!”
There was a hint of displeasure in the disciple’s voice. It was obvious that the high and mighty attitude of the Demigod Envoy earlier had been much worse than he had conveyed.
“Get them to scram then! I do not need what they have,” Luo Yunyang said right away.
The Bloody Massacre Path Master and the other eight Path Masters stood up at the same time. “Yunyang, now is not the time to let your emotions cloud your judgment. This is a life and death situation, so how much do you think our face value is actually worth?”
“The Nine-Crystal Transformation Stone is crucial for your victory. After all, the Primeval Underworld Monarch’s Three Thousand Swords Of Bloodied Seas isn’t a move you can go up against right now.”
“The nine of us shall go and welcome him with sufficient respect. The Demigod Tribe is also relying on you for this battle, so I believe that they would not go overboard either.”
Luo Yunyang, who was aware of the intentions of the Nine Path Masters, waved his hands and said, “It isn’t easy to negotiate over this. I cannot simply use anything the Demigod Tribe gives me. All you have to do is just convey my message to the envoy.”
Three minutes later, a thunderous voice boomed, “Luo Yunyang, this is your final chance! You are going to regret this!”
The hollering voice of the envoy of the Demigod Tribe was so loud that it was heard through the entire Bloody Spirit Sky. Several Demigod Tribe martialists who were just there to watch heard it as well.
The Nine Path Masters had crestfallen expressions on their faces. They knew very well what this shouting meant.
Luo Yunyang simply replied blandly, “Get lost then!”
His disdainful attitude had obviously riled up the emotions of the hollering envoy of the Demigod Tribe, whose face turned darker.
“You are not showing any respect, even though we are respecting you! I would really love to see how you will walk out of the Blood Source Mountain alive this time!” the Demigod Envoy said bitterly.
The envoy then left, and so did the people who had initially gone there to spectate the whole incident. Three days later, Luo Yunyang was flying in the spaceship, heading to the Bloody Space River.
Two days after Luo Yunyang left the Milky Way, the news that the Primeval Underworld Monarch was using the Three Thousand Swords Of Bloodied Seas Technique had already started to circulate rapidly throughout the entire Divine Union.
Top-tier fighters from the other tribes, as well as normal fighters, now also knew about the Primeval Underworld Monarch’s combat prowess.
Some people even started analyzing the battle that was about to take place between the Primeval Underworld Monarch and Luo Yunyang.
Unlike the normal people who were just there to spectate the whole incident, those who had to bow their heads to the Human Tribe due to the sudden emergence of Luo Yunyang had begun to bid their time to stir trouble.
Although these actions were really small and insignificant, as the representatives of the Human Tribe, the Nine Path Masters obviously felt some of the pressure mounting.
Suddenly, a small sapling began to drill out of the rigid land atop the Blood Source Mountain.
In one day, the sapling had already grown into a 10-meter tall shrub!
In two days, the sapling had already grown to about 340 meters tall, while boundless blood-lights emanated from it.
By the third day, the size of the tree had already increased 100 times. It had now become a massive mountain that covered half of the other massive trees around. Blood-red rays radiated into the sky for miles.
At the top of the massive tree was a budding flower that was about 30 meters wide.
Countless people came to the Bloody Space River from everywhere. Although many of them did not have the right to participate in the battle, the rays emitted by the budding flower had filled them with greed.
The surroundings of the budding flower were filled with many different Origin Source Laws. Their layers surrounded the budding flower just like a ripple. The blood-red rays emitted from the insides of the flower bud also enveloped the void around the Bloody Source Mountain for many miles.
Although the distance was very big, they could still clearly see the flower bud that kept growing and feel the blood rays it was emitting.
Everyone who saw the budding flower knew one thing: the Blood Jade Flower was about to blossom!
