The exchange between Great Heavenly Venerate Scarlet Red and Luo Yunyang was electrifying. Although describing it in detail made it sound slow, everything was over in a few milliseconds.
Great Heavenly Venerate Scarlet Red didn’t move, even though Luo Yunyang had made all sorts of moves. However, Great Heavenly Venerate Scarlet Red was actually the one actively attacking.
Hence, Luo Yunyang quickly adjusted his attribute regulator after breaking the 36 layers of void seals made by Great Heavenly Venerate Scarlet Red and executing the Life Death Resounding Fate.
The Sky Feather 13 Swords were supposed to be Luo Yunyang’s strongest technique, but he planned to never use that technique and expose his identity unless he was caught in a life-threatening predicament.
Therefore, he executed the Life Death Resounding Fate instead.
The words “life and death” resonated in Great Heavenly Venerate Scarlet Red’s ears as he immediately felt his mind waver and his consciousness tear apart.
While he was a sixth-level Heavenly Venerate who had only managed to pass the fourth level of the 13 Origin Martial Stages, he was widely considered a fourth-level Heavenly Venerate among the vast human race. His level was still much higher than Luo Yunyang’s, who was only a first-level Heavenly Venerate.
He was rather annoyed that his consciousness was shaken by Luo Yunyang as he bellowed in rage while forming hand seals to calm his mental state. Then, his crimson eyes lit up before sending layers and layers of realms towards Luo Yunyang once more.
Luo Yunyang was no longer intimidated by this sort of technique as he continued to execute the same technique after being caught up in the realms conjured by Great Heavenly Venerate Scarlet Red.
The layers of realms were broken again by Luo Yunyang. However, just as Luo Yunyang was preparing to shatter the last layer, Great Heavenly Venerate Scarlet Red suddenly appeared between that realm layer.
His eyes were ice-cold, and his palms moved towards Luo Yunyang when he caught sight of him.
This palm strike contained six layers of universe origin marks.
This also meant that the palm contained the power of six universes condensed by great Great Heavenly Venerate Scarlet Red.
Although none of the six universes condensed by Great Heavenly Venerate Scarlet Red was comparable to Luo Yunyang’s One-Yuan Universe, six universes were still six universes.
The power of condensing universes was very strong to begin with, and the realm that sealed Luo Yunyang had been formed by Great Heavenly Scarlet Red with just a mere thought.
Should I evade it or take it head-on?
Luo Yunyang made a decision in a heartbeat. Although he could recklessly take Great Heavenly Venerate Scarlet Red’s attack head-on, he decided against exposing his true strength, as he already had a plan.
Luo Yunyang instantly increased his Speed Attributes by 100 points with the attribute regulator!
He then dashed out of the crimson realm just as Great Heavenly Venerate Scarlet Red’s palm was about to strike him.
Great Heavenly Venerate Scarlet Red’s eyes were burning with rage. He had initially been just testing Luo Yunyang’s abilities, but he had gone all out to suppress Luo Yunyang now.
However, just as he was about to land a long-awaited blow, Luo Yunyang unexpectedly tore through the void by using a speed that exceeded his own.
He was a little concerned when he saw Luo Yunyang’s speed. It would be impossible to capture Luo Yunyang if he could maintain such an astonishing speed.
Great Heavenly Venerate Scarlet Red was anxious about facing an opponent he couldn’t capture, as this would mean gaining another pesky enemy.
The crimson realm shattered as Great Heavenly Venerate Scarlet Red walked out with a wave of his arm.
He did not immediately make any moves. Instead, he glanced at Luo Yunyang, who had already appeared in the void. Solemnly, he said, “Heavenly Venerate Samsara, you surprised me. I feel that we can still come to an agreement regarding the matter of the Forsaken Sky Sword Sect!”
Heavenly Venerate Qingyuan’s heart fell.
Great Heavenly Venerate Scarlet Red was a decision-maker, as well as an imposing figure. However, he was still willing to negotiate with Luo Yuanchu despite the disrespect shown.
It was evident that Great Heavenly Venerate Scarlet Red didn’t have the confidence to take down Luo Yuanchu.
Most Heavenly Venerates wouldn’t harbor enmity against each other as long as it was difficult for one to suppress the other. The same applied to Great Heavenly Venerates as well.
He glared at Heavenly Venerate Joyless for a moment, as if he wanted to beat Heavenly Venerate Joyless up for his stupidity and impulsiveness.
Heavenly Venerate Joyless’ hand was trembling too, as he also realized that this entire mess had been created by him.
Luo Yunyang met Great Heavenly Venerate Scarlet Red’s gaze and said in an unquestionable tone, “The Forsaken Sky Sword Sect must be razed to the ground!”
“You might stop me today, but you can’t stop me forever. I can still slowly kill off everyone in the Forsaken Sky Sword Sect even if you sit in the Forsaken Sky Sword Sect all day.”
“Unless you store the Forsaken Sky Sword Sect and all your disciples in your internal universe…”
The burning rage developing in Great Heavenly Venerate Scarlet Red’s eyes intensified. This was a menacing threat that made him very uncomfortable.
How long had it been since anyone in the Yunguang Cosmos had dared to threaten him?
Anyone who had threatened him had already died many eons ago. Great Heavenly Venerate Scarlet Red wanted to kill the person in front of him as well. However, from the looks of it, this person must have experienced a small opportunity, so it was not within Great Heavenly Venerate Scarlet Red’s ability to kill him now.
Great Heavenly Venerate Scarlet Red was worried that this person would be a malignant tumor.
A huge opportunity was about to appear and his cultivation base would improve greatly if he was able to obtain it.
He would benefit greatly once he took a step towards this opportunity. By then, the person in front of him would be nothing more than noise.
However, it would be really bad if he was tied up by this person when this huge opportunity appeared.
It seemed like it was unnecessary to sacrifice this huge opportunity for the plain Forsaken Sky Sword Sect.
Unfortunately, it was also tough for him to give up on the Forsaken Sky Sword Sect, as they respected him very much. Heavenly Venerate Qingyuan always listened to his instructions and did his bidding.
After hesitating for a moment, Great Heavenly Venerate Scarlet Red took in a deep breath and said, “Young friend, I think it’s fair to say that we’re acquainted, yet I am still not too sure what happened between you and the Forsaken Sky Sword Sect. Would you mind telling me about it?”
Heavenly Venerate Joyless grimaced upon hearing that.
Great Heavenly Venerate Scarlet Red turned to look at Heavenly Venerate Qingyuan. Meanwhile, Luo Yunyang did not say a word. He already had no intention of fighting with Luo Yunyang. Hence, he could only let Heavenly Venerate Qingyuan explain the situation if Luo Yunyang chose not to.
Heavenly Venerate Qingyuan knew that this matter had something to do with his son, but he did not know the exact reason either.
Luo Yunyang had come aggressively out of the blue and never said anything before wreaking havoc.
Hence, he turned to look at Heavenly Venerate Joyless when he saw Great Heavenly Venerate Scarlet Red looking over. “Could you tell me what exactly is going on?”
Heavenly Venerate Joyless was reluctant to explain. He knew that he could not lie, but he also did not dare to shed light on what had caused the entire situation.
As he was mumbling something, Heavenly Venerate Qingyuan snapped, “What is it? Tell me exactly what it is. I will put you into the Ancient Ice Prison for 10,000 years if you dare lie.”
Luo Yunyang scoffed at what Heavenly Venerate Qingyuan had said. However, he remained silent as he stood where he was quietly.
“Father, in the Tianyun Void, some people offered me…” Heavenly Venerate Joyless knew that he would be making things difficult for himself if he told the truth, yet he did so anyway.
Heavenly Venerate Qingyuan’s face darkened as he heard the explanation of Heavenly Venerate Joyless. He would simply have reprimanded Heavenly Venerate Joyless if Luo Yunyang had been just an ordinary Heavenly Venerate.
However, Luo Yunyang’s abilities had surpassed his and even made Great Heavenly Venerate Scarlet Red fearful.
Thus, he knew that things would only go south from then on.
Great Heavenly Venerate Scarlet Red wasn’t looking too good either. He wouldn’t have cared much about such a thing in the past, as Heavenly Venerate Joyless had a forgiving father.
Now, not only had Heavenly Venerate Samsara from the Tianyun Void slaughtered his way back, but he even possessed terrifying abilities.
Both opportunities and extreme perseverance would be necessary for someone to become a Heavenly Venerate in such a short amount of time and travel and return from the endless void.
Great Heavenly Venerate Scarlet Red was not willing to form an enmity with such a formidable opponent.
“Scumbag, look what you’ve done!” Heavenly Venerate Qingyuan landed a tight slap across Heavenly Venerate Joyless’ face, as he felt very ashamed of what had happened.
Even the five second-level Heavenly Venerates from the Forsaken Sky Sword Sect were glaring at Heavenly Venerate Joyless. After all, they had also been affected by his presumptuous deed.
“Great Heavenly Venerate, I did not discipline my son well. I have made a fool of myself.” Heavenly Venerate Qingyuan glanced at Great Heavenly Venerate Scarlet Red and then said, “Please forgive this boy on account of all my years of service.”
Great Heavenly Venerate Scarlet Red didn’t say a word, as he was weighing this matter in his mind. Finally, after a short pause, he turned to look at Luo Yunyang and said, “Heavenly Venerate Samsara, this matter…”
“I came here to destroy the Forsaken Sky Sword Sect. I’ll either be a friend or a foe!”
Luo Yunyang looked at Great Heavenly Venerate Scarlet Red and said, “I can overlook the fact that you attacked me. However, I will fight you till the end if you continue! I swear I’ll do what I said!”
Great Heavenly Venerate Scarlet Red’s eyes were burning with rage. He really did not want to care about this matter, but the Forsaken Sky Sword Sect had always been very deferential to him.
His reputation would be affected if he abandoned the Forsaken Sky Sword Sect.
However, he didn’t want to step on Luo Yunyang’s tail either.
After a moment of hesitation, he said, “The Forsaken Sky Sword Sect shall hand you Heavenly Venerate Joyless and offer you a great compensation for his vile deed. Is this enough for you, Heavenly Venerate Samsara?”
