What sort of place was the Great Sky Paradise? It was the foundation of the Great Sky Heavenly Venerate. Although he was a Heavenly Venerate, many things relied on the Great Sky Paradise.
Disciple training and medicine production couldn’t be done away from the Great Sky Paradise. Although Heavenly Venerates were powerful, they too faced all sorts of threats, especially from Heavenly Tribulation. If a Heavenly Venerate wasn’t able to survive one, their many years of cultivation would go down the drain as they turned to dust.
To survive through Heavenly Tribulation, a huge amount of resources were needed on top of raising one’s cultivation base. The Great Sky Paradise was a foundation that provided him with the most resources.
Now, this foundation had been destroyed with one blade strike. The Great Sky Heavenly Venerate practically felt his heart shattering. He pointed at Luo Yunyang and bellowed furiously, “Bastard, you are asking to die!”
As he bellowed furiously, a long sword appeared in the Great Sky Heavenly Venerate’s hand. This time, he really wanted to go all out.
The Great Sky Heavenly Venerate’s cultivation base would definitely surpass Luo Yunyang’s current Heavenly Venerate. However, after the attribute regulator’s speed adjustment, the Great Sky Heavenly Venerate would only be a punching bag.
“Luo Yunyang, you and I are mortal enemies!” the Great Sky Heavenly Venerate roared maniacally after his head was decapitated again.
However, as the wounds on his body increased, the Great Sky Heavenly Venerate calmed himself down. He hadn’t become a Heavenly Venerate by being a hot-headed fool.
Under the current circumstances, he knew that there wasn’t really any point in continuing to get tangled up here. Thus, after his body was kicked backward, he shouted angrily, “Stop!”
During a fight, saying the word “stop” was basically akin to admitting defeat. Although the Great Sky Heavenly Venerate wasn’t willing to admit defeat to Luo Yunyang, he knew that he had no choice under the circumstances.
Unfortunately, Luo Yunyang didn’t stop in the slightest. He kept raining various moves of the Divine Martial Technique on the Great Sky Heavenly Venerate.
The Great Sky Heavenly Venerate was becoming more and more miserable by the minute. Towards the end, his Heavenly Venerate body, which had just congealed in the sky, encountered a problem.
The Great Sky Heavenly Venerate howled and no longer tried to counterattack. With a wave of his sleeves, he wrapped up the majority of the disciples from the Great Sky Paradise and shot off into the horizon like a streak of lightning.
He had fled!
This fight’s outcome had exceeded everyone’s expectations. Meanwhile, more and more top-notch consciousnesses fell onto that Heavenly Venerate True Body.
Luo Yunyang could sense these consciousnesses checking his Heavenly Venerate True Body out. Although he looked calm on the surface, he was somewhat worried deep down.
After all, these consciousnesses were really powerful. Luo Yunyang could sense that they were so powerful that the moment one of these people made a move, he wouldn’t even have a chance of making a counterplay.
Fortunately, these glimmers of consciousness vanished completely after a short while. The hardships that Luo Yunyang had anticipated didn’t appear.
This allowed Luo Yunyang to heave a huge sigh of relief. The miraculousness of the attribute regulator had made the Great Sky Heavenly Venerate suffer a huge loss.
However, the Great Sky Heavenly Venerate was a Heavenly Venerate that had only gone through Heavenly Tribulation twice. The difference between him and a ninth-level Heavenly Venerate was still too great.
Although the attribute regulator was very powerful, if all his attributes added up wouldn’t even compare to a single attribute of another person, then there simply wouldn’t be any way to compete.
Luo Yunyang could guess why those peak Heavenly Venerates didn’t make any moves. His own Heavenly Venerate might be worth a great deal in the eyes of any martialists below the Heavenly Venerate, but it was basically a problem that could be solved in a jiffy by those top Heavenly Venerate characters.
Countless people were fleeing in disarray toward the Great Sky Paradise, including some Sky Celestial-Grade individuals.
Although the Great Sky Heavenly Venerate had brought along a bunch of people when he had escaped, there were still quite a lot of people he hadn’t been able to carry with him.
Now, these Sky Celestial-Grades were caught in the crossfire. As long as Luo Yunyang wanted to, he could immediately slaughter them.
Luo Yunyang wasn’t very interested in these people. As he was about to take a look at what had been left behind in the Great Sky Paradise, he suddenly felt an aura belonging to a Heavenly Venerate approaching him.
This was a first-level Heavenly Venerate!
Although Luo Yunyang had already defeated the Great Sky Heavenly Venerate, who was a second-level Heavenly Venerate, he still remained extremely vigilant.
After all, he wasn’t a Heavenly Venerate!
The person who came looked like an old man in his fifties. He had a friendly look in his eyes and he smiled when he saw Luo Yunyang. “Brother Luo, I have come here on someone’s request to discuss an issue with you.”
Every person beneath the Heavenly Venerate was considered an ant. Getting a Heavenly Venerate to call an ant Brother was basically impossible.
However, this old man had actually addressed Luo Yunyang as Brother Luo. This meant that this Heavenly Venerate believed that Luo Yunyang was on equal standing with him.
Although Luo Yunyang was confident that he could defeat this Heavenly Venerate, he wasn’t going to casually attack him. After all, he had no issue with this person.
“I am Luo Yunyang. May I know how I should address you, Brother?”
Luo Yunyang’s courtesy brought a smile to the man’s face. “I am Light Ray from the Light Ray Paradise, which is 100,000 miles away from here.”
Light Ray Heavenly Venerate? Luo Yunyang really hadn’t heard this name before. Instead of beating around the bush with this Heavenly Venerate, he said with a chuckle, “I wonder what Brother Light Ray has come here for?”
“The Great Sky Heavenly Venerate and I can be considered neighbors. Great Sky is someone who likes to take advantage of others. However, he isn’t a bad person.”
The Light Ray Heavenly Venerate chuckled before he continued. “He wanted to gain some advantages from Brother Luo, yet he never expected to suffer a great loss. I wonder if Brother Luo could drop this matter for my sake?”
Luo Yunyang looked at the Light Ray Heavenly Venerate with a straight face. “The Great Sky Heavenly Venerate can attack me as he wishes and stop me at will. Could I, Luo Yunyang, be easy to bully after all?”
The Light Ray Heavenly Venerate smiled but didn’t say anything. Actually, this was a very good explanation. When the Great Sky Heavenly Venerate had made his move, he hadn’t known that Luo Yunyang could use the Heavenly Venerate True Body and hurt him.
Now, he was suing for peace because Luo Yunyang had greatly hurt the Great Sky Heavenly Venerate. He believed that Luo Yunyang understood this logic.
“Brother Luo, the Great Sky Heavenly Venerate is very sincere. Isn’t it better to squash enmity than keep it alive? Don’t you agree?” The Light Ray Heavenly Venerate paused for a while before continuing. “Besides, the Great Sky Heavenly Venerate also has many friends.”
These words contained a slight threat.
Luo Yunyang looked at the Great Sky Heavenly Venerate and said coldly, “Does that mean that you are also included amongst the Great Sky Heavenly Venerate’s friends?”
The Light Ray Heavenly Venerate sensed a clear threat in Luo Yunyang’s gaze. Although this threatening sensation made him feel very uncomfortable, he suppressed his discomfort after recalling the destruction of the Great Sky Paradise, as well as how miserable the Great Sky Heavenly Venerate looked.
“Brother Luo, the Great Sky Heavenly Venerate and I are just ordinary friends. I wouldn’t get involved in the Great Sky Heavenly Venerate’s affairs.”
Luo Yunyang was even more sure of this notion when he saw the Light Ray Heavenly Venerate disassociating himself. Heavenly Venerates rarely made moves on other Heavenly Venerates, the main reason being that Heavenly Venerates were very difficult to kill when they reached this level.
The moment they failed to kill their opponent, they would be on the receiving end of incessant threats from a similar Heavenly Venerate being. Thus, it was best to hold fewer grudges and harbor less animosity.
“Ha ha ha! Since the Light Ray Heavenly Venerate has come this time, I can’t not show him any respect. How about this? As long as the Great Sky Heavenly Venerate doesn’t provoke me anymore, I will drop this matter.” Luo Yunyang pointed towards the Great Sky Paradise. “From this day onwards, this Paradise will be my cultivation ground!”
At first, the Light Ray Heavenly Venerate thought that this youngster really knew how to speak. However, he exhaled sharply upon hearing Luo Yunyang casually say that he was going to take this paradise for himself.
This was him letting the matter go. If he was unwilling to let the matter go, perhaps he would want to turn the Great Sky Heavenly Venerate to dust?
The Light Ray Heavenly Venerate and the Great Sky Heavenly Venerate had rather considerable friendly relations. However, he still decided not to say too much about this situation.
After all, he shouldn’t offend Luo Yunyang, who was someone even the Great Sky Heavenly Venerate couldn’t deal with.
“I will mention Brother Luo’s conditions to the Great Sky Heavenly Venerate.”
Actually, as the Light Ray Heavenly Venerate was speaking, the Great Sky Heavenly Venerate and the Light Ray Heavenly Venerate were sitting opposite each other in a space filled with dense Qi.
The Light Ray Heavenly Venerate had a faintly illusory feel about him.
It was the Light Ray Heavenly Venerate’s clone that was currently speaking with the Great Sky Heavenly Venerate. As he listened to Luo Yunyang’s conditions, the seated Great Sky Heavenly Venerate stood up and barked fiercely, “This youngster doesn’t know how the world works! He really thinks that I am afraid of him. I just…”
In the end, the Great Sky Heavenly Venerate didn’t finish what he was going to say. The Light Ray Heavenly Venerate said calmly, “Old friend, you were kicked to the ground this time. You have to admit it when you fall. Don’t you think so?”
The Great Sky Heavenly Venerate snorted. “He damaged my Great Sky Paradise. I can also break the Donghua Ancient Sect apart.”
“I believe that you would be able to do it, but have you thought about it? If you did, not a single one of your subordinates would remain.”
The Light Ray Heavenly Venerate then said softly, “All this isn’t considered important. Can you let him continue haunting and trying to kill you?”
These words were like a stab in the Great Sky Heavenly Venerate’s heart. He couldn’t beat Luo Yunyang. If Luo Yunyang kept chasing him, then the one suffering would still be him.
“The Great Sky Paradise is the foundation I spent many years building up. What would I do if I just gave it to him like this?” the Great Sky Heavenly Venerate said bitterly after hesitating a little.
The Light Ray Heavenly Venerate didn’t utter a word. Although he had some ideas, he definitely wouldn’t say them out loud. He believed that the Great Sky Heavenly Venerate wasn’t completely out of ideas either.
“Where there’s life, there’s hope. Later, I’ll…” The Great Sky Heavenly Venerate slapped his thigh. “I will let the Great Sky Paradise go! One day, I will take it back!”
