Lin Yu’s face went pale as he watched Ye Futian pull out the Halberd of Time and Space. He seemed to feel the ridicule in Ye Futian’s gaze. Just one movement had made him take a frightened step back.
At that moment, the cultivators of the three holy lands were all hesitant. They did not know what to do. Ye Futian, the Palace Lord of the holy land of the Barren State had come from the Barren State, cracked the secret of the Ocean King, killed the sacred beast known as the Jiuying, and obtained the Halberd of Time and Space, which for so many years, no one in the Endless Sea could obtain.
It seemed that this was not Ye Futian’s first time killing something sacred. It was rumored that Chess Saint had also died at his hands.
“Take him and bring him to the Palace Lord to be dealt with.” Lin Yu felt the strong threat in Ye Futian’s eyes, but with the situation as it was he could not allow him to get away.
A cultivator of the lower Sage Level from the Ocean Palace flashed forward with a silver spear in his hands towards Ye Futian. The ocean water roared and turned into an ice dragon that breathed wildly at Ye Futian. The water froze and turned into a huge crystal, and the endless cold stretched towards Ye Futian. The ice dragon was incomparably fierce as it rushed towards him.
Ye Futian’s hands trembled slightly. The Halberd of Time and Space had consumed a huge amount of space rule power, and his body was surrounded by brilliant light. He stepped forward and thrust the halberd forward and a ray of light pierced through the ice, smashing it into nothingness.
Space was torn by the space rule power.
Everyone saw the ice and the ice dragon be completely destroyed. The brilliant golden light pierced through everything as it crossed over the sea in a beautiful arc. A scream rang out as the Halberd of Time and Space cut into the Sage’s body. In the next instant, his form was completely torn apart, and then vanished into nothingness.
Ye Futian floated in the sea with glorious radiance blooming from him. He was like a god, unstoppable. His eyes had turned golden, and when anyone met his gaze they felt a burst of trembling.
“We’ll do it together,” said Lin Yu. He couldn’t kill all the Sage level cultivators with one attack.
Ye Futian raised the Halberd of Time and Space, and light rained down, covering everyone.
“Freeze space,” Ye Futian said coldly. In that instant everyone felt that their bodies were restricted. The cultivators at the same level as Lin Yu were frozen in place, and could not move even a finger. Only people at the Sage level could still move, but they were still subject to certain restrictions. Their hearts all beat faster.
He was so strong.
Even with a divine implement, a mid level Magi could not reach this level of power. Even though the Halberd of Time and Space was number three on the Divine Implements Ranking, with Ye Futian’s level as low as it was, he should not be able to wield this kind of power.
A rain of terrible space rule particles flowed out of time and space, giving everyone a strong sense of danger. “Be careful,” said a Sage, and he retreated backwards. But he saw Ye Futian’s eyes suddenly turn gold and his body glow with a brilliant radiance. He was like an emperor bathing in divine light. His aura was still increasing, and the aura that permeated the Halberd of Time and Space was becoming even more terrible.
“Let’s get out of here!” yelled a mid-level Sage. His rule power burst forth and he broke free of his bondage and turned to escape. He had a feeling that they could not compete with Ye Futian at this moment.
“No need to run,” said Ye Futian coldly. An even stronger rule power covered the sea around him. The ferocious space rules were raging, and even the mid-level Sages were restrained. He seemed to have been driven by the will of the emperor. The light blooming from the Halberd of Space and Time grew stronger, and covered everything around him.
“Kill.” Ye Futian’s body moved, and the halberd shot out towards the cultivators from the North Deep. In that instant, more brilliant light erupted, and the halberd swallowed up the endless flowing golden light. It was as dazzling as the sun, and all the water in that area dried up, evaporating into nothingness. The light descended upon the cultivators from the North Deep and pierced through them.
In the next instant, their bodies exploded.
All that was left was one mid-level Sage retreating. Ye Futian glanced at him and thrust the Halberd of Time and Space straight out, piercing directly through his body, tearing him to pieces.
The cultivators from the North Deep had all been killed.
The cultivators from Ocean King Palace and Zhisheng Cliffs were struck dumb with amazement by this scene. They felt that their breathing had stopped and their faces went pale.
Ye Futian was now like an emperor that they must prostrate themselves before.
They all wondered if the statue outside had been broken because of Ye Futian.
“Lord Ye, the holy lands of the Endless Sea and the Holy Zhi Palace are all holy lands of the Nine States. If you slaughter us all here, what will the consequences be?” asked a Sage from Zhisheng Cliffs.
“The Lost Ruins completely disappeared, along with all the cultivators who went there. The Halberd of Time and Space was lost, and Ye Futian was never there.”
The cultivator from the Zhitian Cliffs looked hopeless. They had just been saved from the Jiuying, but due to their greed for the Halberd of Time and Space, they had once again sent themselves into the abyss.
“If we had known you were Lord Ye, we would not have done this,” said someone.
“No, you would have.” Ye Futian looked at him coldly. “You would have as long as you could have gotten the Halberd of Time and Space. After you killed Ye Futian, the Holy Zhi Palace would have collapsed. You are all cultivators, what could the palace do to you?”
The reason why they now said nothing was that he now had their lives in his hands.
“Now, I have just made the same choice as you.” When he finished speaking his godlike figure shot forward and brilliant light descended like a fire of destruction. Everything was annihilated. In an instant the cultivators from Zhisheng Cliffs had disappeared.
With the will of the emperor bursting out of him, Ye Futian was too strong. His level right now was no less than that of a Sage.
Ye Futian looked at Lin Yu and saw him trembling. Could he really overcome Ye Futian, the heroic figure of the Nine States?
Right now, Ye Futian was like an emperor, like a god. In his eyes Lin Yu was probably nothing more than an ant. Ye Futian stepped towards Lin Yu. Under the space freezing rules, he could not even move a finger as he watched the god of death descend upon him step by step.
Woosh. The Halberd of Time and Space rushed towards him, ending his life.
Ye Futian did not stop. His figure continued to flash from place to place. All the Sages were killed by the halberd. None of them were a match for it.
In the end, there were only three people left alive other than Ye Futian.
Liu Yu, Liu Han, and Liu Zixuan.
He had killed all the other members of the Liu Clan.
The three of them stared at Ye Futian, their hearts in turmoil. Even the Liu Clan had not been able to escape death.
Ye Futian said nothing. Perhaps cultivating really did make people colder. He could not help but remember Chess Saint’s words: “The Great Path has no place for sentiments, and cultivating is akin to plundering.”
Of course, Ye Futian did not regret it. The cultivators from the three holy lands had wanted to kill him and take the Halberd of Time and Space. He had just made the same choice that they had.
He turned, and his two brilliant eyes swept across the sea, looking at the huge black dragon in the distance. Many large demons were behind the dragon, and they were looking at him coldly.
“Have you seen enough?” Ye Futian’s voice reached across the sea.
A huge wave broke out of the sea as the black dragon flew over. It started coldly at him with its two giant eyes. He was followed by a group of huge demons.
“Wonderful,” said the black dragon. What had just happened had been a great show.
Ye Futian floated up until he was level with the dragon’s head.
“I’ve been waiting for you,” he said with a smile.
A strange look came over the dragon. “Do you really think you can deal with me?”
He was the tyrant of the sea.
Ye Futian clenched the Halberd of Time and Space. The imperial fire burned within him. Suddenly, an even stronger light shot out of his body and into the sea. The terrible will of the emperor entered the halberd and resonated with it. An unparalleled brilliance burst forth. At this moment Ye Futian’s aura was that of someone at the Sage level.
“Submit to me.” Ye Futian gazed coldly at the black dragon. A terrible spiritual storm appeared in his majestic eyes, directly penetrating into the dragon’s mind.
“Roar!” The dragon suddenly became frantic as a figure appeared in his mind. It was Ye Futian’s imperial figure, trying to plant its mark in his mind. He regretted coming forward. How could this human be so strong? He was a top Sage level demonic beast, the tyrant of the sea. All the sea monsters in the area submitted to him.
“Submit to me.” Ye Futian stepped onto the water, and the imperial light shone from him. The black dragon roared, trying to get rid of his feelings of unease.
The Halberd of Time and Space swallowed up all the light, making the space rules around Ye Futian brilliant to the extreme. Finally, Ye Futian moved, and the Halberd of Time and Space smashed through the sea. The black dragon roared, and shot forward with his claws extended, wanting to tear Ye Futian’s small body to pieces.
Slice! The Halberd of Time and Space pierced right through the dragon’s claw. Blood flowed as he roared in pain.
Ye Futian pulled the halberd out. He stood in front of the dragon’s head. It seemed as though all the dragon had to do was bit down and he could destroy Ye Futian’s head. But he hesitated.
“This is the third time. Give up your resistance. Submit or die,” said Ye Futian. The black dragon roared, and the waves rose up and swept out across the sea. Ye Futian still stared at him coldly. Finally, the dragon lowered his head and gave up his resistance. He had been branded by Ye Futian’s spiritual will.
“Summon all the sea monsters in the area,” Ye Futian ordered. The black dragon roared again, and suddenly the sea began to stir as countless huge beasts burst forth.
“Come here.” Ye Futian looked at a few top Sage level demonic beasts. They all came forward and were dominated by Ye Futian one by one.
He stepped onto the dragon’s back and looked at Liu Zixuan and the other two. “Get on.” Liu Zixuan, Liu Yu and Liu Han looked at this imposing figure and their hearts were in turmoil. They stepped onto the dragon’s back.
“Clear out this area of the sea, and have all the demonic beasts leave. Let’s go,” Ye Futian ordered.
Everything that had happened here would be buried in the depths of the sea!
