Xuantian Zhaoxin, Li Jiuyue, Yin Yang Zongzi…
A bunch of figures appeared in the void. The lowest cultivation base amongst them was second-level Heavenly Venerate, while there were some as high as the fourth-level Heavenly Venerate.
Although there weren’t any fifth-level Heavenly Venerates amongst them, these people were without a doubt the strongest group amongst the Human Race on the Primordial Sacred Battle Ground.
“Luo Yunyang, I’m going to say it once more. Back away immediately and I will act like this fiasco never happened.” Xuantian Zhaoxin met Luo Yunyang’s gaze and said solemnly, “When we were both at Hong Meng Sacred Hall, I always treated you as my greatest opponent.”
“I have acquired rather considerable gains from the Primordial Sacred Battle Ground’s opening. If my guess is right, you too have gained a lot from the Primordial Sacred Battle Ground.”
“However, you wouldn’t just be facing me.”
Xuantian Zhaoxin’s voice became a little downcast as he continued speaking. “I hope to have a proper battle with you one day. However, now really isn’t a good time.”
“Luo Yunyang, I don’t believe what Long Teng says. I don’t believe you ambushed him and tried to snatch the primordial sky tablet. I don’t even believe that you encountered each other while vying for the primordial sky tablet.”
Li Jiuyue, who stepped forward like a dazzling illuminated moon, added, “Based on what I know, if you and Long Teng had crossed paths, Long Teng definitely wouldn’t have managed to live.”
Li Jiuyue hadn’t used any methods to mask her words. She just spoke straightforwardly to Luo Yunyang.
Luo Yunyang grinned when he heard what Li Jiuyue had said.
“Even though we know that Long Teng is targeting you, we can only side with Long Teng.”
“Don’t be upset. We have a reason for choosing Long Teng.” Li Jiuyue paused for a moment. “This is my communication device. Take a look.”
Li Jiuyue’s communication device was a jade bracelet. Luo Yunyang could feel the warmth of the jade bracelet when it landed in his hands.
He sent a trace of spiritual consciousness into the jade bracelet. Li Jiuyue had already removed the restrictions of the jade bracelet, so Luo Yunyang could sense a massive virtual space within it.
Inside this virtual space was a mirror image of Li Jiuyue, as well as mirror images of many others.
Luo Yunyang completely understood when he saw all this.
“The opening of the primordial shrine brings about countless benefits. Being able to use a virtual realm for communication is just one aspect.”
“We still have a massive defensive system. By relying on this system, we can deal with enemies from a defensive cover and double our strength.”
“Furthermore, even if we leave the primordial shrine’s cover of light, we can always use the power of the shrine to transport us back if we encounter any dangers.”
Li Jiyue stared at Luo Yunyang and paused between every word. “Although we know that our choice lacks morality, is there any reason for us to choose you under the circumstances?”
These words were said rather mercilessly, yet they contained an extremely important truth.
“Therefore, you should leave!” Li Jiuyue glanced at Luo Yunyang once again and spoke coldly.
Luo Yunyang chuckled. “I can understand your choices and approve of them. Don’t give me all this crap about doing this for the Human Race. You are all doing it for yourselves.”
He gazed at the primordial shrine and said, “However, this doesn’t concern me. Since Long Teng is actually trying to target me, I cannot just let him off.”
“If you cling on to your obstinate ways, we will have to take you down together!” Xuantian Zhaoxin’s voice contained a hint of killing intent. “Luo Yunyang, the primordial shrine is precious. You just don’t know it.”
“We definitely cannot permit you to destroy the only primordial shrine our Human Race possesses, let alone let you kill Long Teng.”
“He is the master within range of the primordial shrine. You simply wouldn’t be able to reach him.”
“Even if you were able to, it would still be very difficult to kill him. If you killed him, he would also have enough time to destroy this Primordial Shrine.”
“Therefore, this would be a loss for you right from the start!” Xuantian Zhaoxin said icily. “After all, all our lives depend on Long Teng. Thus, you can only leave.”
As the last word was spat out, an ancient stained battle halberd appeared in Xuantian Zhaoxin’s hands.
This wasn’t the halberd that Xuantian Zhaoxin had used in the past. However, Luo Yunyang could sense that it was even more dangerous.
This halberd was probably an opportunity that Xuantian Zhaoxin had gained.
“Ha ha ha! Did you hear what Xuantian Zhaoxin said? You can’t win. Run away! Run away like the stray dog you are. Don’t worry, I won’t ask anyone to pursue you.”
Long Teng’s voice echoed across the void. Under the illumination of the spheres of light, the figure of Long Teng was like an unparalleled god overlooking the common folk.
He appeared to be brimming with self-confidence. This confidence came from his belief that he had full control of the primordial shrine.
Luo Yunyang’s gaze turned several degrees colder as he glared at Long Teng. Long Teng roared with laughter. “Forget about Xuantian Zhaoxin. Even if you could contact Hong Meng Sacred Hall now, do you think those big shots in Hong Meng Sacred Hall would believe you or me?”
“Ha ha ha! Give me an answer!”
Luo Yunyang stared at the increasingly deranged Long Teng and sneered, “You are nothing but trash!”
After Long Teng had opened up the primordial shrine, even Xuantian Zhaoxin and others on the Hong Meng Heaven Roll had shown patience and accommodated him.
Now, Luo Yunyang was not giving him any face, which made him completely livid.
He glared at Luo Yunyang and roared. “Trash? Ha ha ha! Did you call me trash? I lost to you in the battle for Hong Meng Sacred Hall, which made it impossible for me to become a part of Hong Meng Sacred Hall.”
“However, even the heavens are helping me now. I have opened a primordial shrine and gained massive benefits. Furthermore, the treasures on the Meru Mountain can only be gained by relying on one’s strength. I am way more important than you!”
Long Teng seemed as though he wanted to vent all the unhappiness in his heart at the moment. “So what If I lied about you launching a sneak attack on me?”
“Do you think all these Heavenly Venerates do not know that I made it up? They all do. However, they still chose me.”
“Do you feel angry? Do you feel helpless? Do you feel totally useless?”
Xuantian Zhaoxin and the others had sullen looks on their faces. Although there were some things everyone tacitly understood, nobody would feel good saying so out loud.
Luo Yunyang looked at that maniacal Long Teng and said nonchalantly, “Are you done?”
“I’m done.” Although Long Teng had a look of displeasure on his face as he glared at Luo Yunyang, he still put on a smile. “By pretending to be calm, you really irritate others.”
Luo Yunyang didn’t say anything else. He quickly made some adjustments to his attribute regulator. In an instant, the Power of his Chaotic Four-Origin Beast had all been transferred into his main body. The other attributes of his own body were transferred into his Mind Attribute.
Although the power of the Chaotic Four-Origin Beast was still at the first-level Heavenly Venerate, using the third-level Chaotic Yuan Sky Bell Technique wasn’t a problem.
As Luo Yunyang conjured this technique, a faintly-discernible treasured bell that seemed to contain three dimensions appeared above Luo Yunyang’s head.
Xuantian Zhaoxin was stirred up when he saw that massive bell. Although his fighting spirit increased, the ancient halberd in his hands revealed slight fear.
This ancient halberd was an inheritance from an ancient powerhouse. Xuantian Zhaoxin had nothing but respect and awe for that powerhouse.
However, the top divine weapon left behind by that powerhouse was actually trembling. This made Xuantian Zhaoxin have a bad feeling.
As Xuantian Zhaoxin prepared to make a move, he saw a seemingly transparent palm flying out from above Luo Yunyang’s head and striking that massive bell.
This strike was extremely ferocious.
However, as this palm strike struck the third-level bell, there was no sound. Xuantian Zhaoxin didn’t even sense a threat.
It seemed as if everything he had just seen was fake.
Xuantian Zhaoxin wasn’t someone easy to deceive. When the palm struck the massive bell, he had an ominous feeling in his heart.
However, he still didn’t know why he had this ominous feeling for the time being or when this feeling would pass.
Long Teng also had a bad feeling because of the primordial shrine. He had frantically activated the primordial shrine’s defenses the instant Luo Yunyang had struck the giant bell.
He didn’t believe that Luo Yunyang’s giant bell would threaten his life.
There weren’t any ripples or shockwaves. There wasn’t even any threat or the chimes of a bell.
It was as if Luo Yunyang’s heavy strike hadn’t existed at all. However, all the humans gathered at the primordial shrine suddenly started feeling worried.
They didn’t know what the might of this attack from Luo Yunyang was, but they didn’t believe that Luo Yunyang’s attack wouldn’t deal any damage.
As they waited, the body of Long Teng, who was brightly illuminated by those light spheres, crashed heavily to the ground.
Long Teng was dead!
As Long Teng’s body crashed to the ground under the illumination of the spheres, practically no one could believe that what had just happened was real!
