“Stop them,” Saint Ji and Saint Xihua both commanded, and suddenly the great army that had the advantage of numbers reverted from attack to defense, all for intercepting the cultivators who were moving in the direction of Ye Futian. Finally, Ye Futian was separated from the guardian circle of Qin Zhuang, Yun Shang, and Sword Saint. There were only the three of them now, surrounded by the great army. How could they allow Ye Futian the chance to escape? This time he would die.
As soon as Ye Futian died, this Sacred War would be over. The great alliance of armies would collapse immediately. No one at the Holy Zhi Palace would be able to hold on to any of their convictions.
At this time, Ao Feng saw that Ye Futian had the Halberd of Time and Space. Without a response, from his eyes there bloomed with a blue luster. He raised the divine implement, the silver trident and his giant body releasing a shocking force. Its momentum created violent waves that pushed downwards from the sky, and there were even sounds of tsunamis, like a storm full of shocking waves.
“Ice,” Ao Feng said indifferently. Heaven and earth were frozen. The whole world was turned snowy white, and just like that, ice sculptures appeared. Ye Futian’s body seemed to be also frozen between heaven and earth. Ao Feng stepped down, like a giant sea god, the trident in his hand slammed down, and a stunning spiral storm appeared in the void. The trident came down and the ice sculptures were broken. Everything inside seemed to be torn into pieces.
There was a loud bang. The defensive light screen around Ye Futian was pulverized, and the brilliant shadow of the Roc crossed the void and attacked toward the sky. The Halberd of Time and Space vaguely emitted the rules of Time and Space, intending to solidify time and space.
“Breach!” Ao Feng roared within the violent tsunami, silver rays piercing through the space and slamming down with immense power. In the eye of the storm, there was a trident that sped forward to pierce through the space, and upon the trident, there was a silver dragon hovering on top, swooping down along.
At this time, Ye Futian, who was down below, had a hallucination. He felt like he was being crushed by heavy smashing waves that madly impacted his body. The Halberd of Time and Space in his hands lanced forward and made violent sounds of collision. It was clearly in the void, but it was like he had penetrated the huge waves in the sky, from which there was a boundless force that landed on the Halberd of Time and Space, shocking his arm. But the powerful force did not make his arm waver. He pierced through huge wave after wave, also forming a terrible spiral storm working upward.
The Halberd of Time and Space and the Trident finally collided. A huge wave of horrible storms swept the surrounding area. A silver dragon and the Roc rushed out at the same time and turned toward each other. The firmament was shocked by it.
Boom! A loud bang and the two separated. Ye Futian was shocked backward. Likewise, Ao Feng was also shocked by the void. The immense body continued to retreat, his arm shaking slightly, and he felt a subtle force of tearing that almost pulverized his arm. With one man’s strength, he faced off a small but elite army led by Ao Feng.
Many cultivators were shocked and thought to themselves that it was no wonder he was considered unparalleled in the Nine States. Ao Feng alone was ranked 17th on the Sage and Saint Ranking. Ao Feng stared below, his heart extremely shocked, but quickly, it was once again composed. No matter how strong Ye Futian was, he would not leave here alive today.
At the same time, Kun of the North Deep also gathered the power of the battle matrix. He held the dark spear, which emitted a terrible destructive power. The battle matrix also gathered into the shape of the Kunpeng, who opened both wings that seemed to want to swallow up mountains and rivers. Yang Qi, of Celestial Cliffs, dragged a golden Sacred Pagoda behind him that burst with dazzling brilliance and stunned the eyes.
In the three major directions, three opponents of the Sage Plane all carried battle matrixes, ready to attack Ye Futian at the same time. A truly suffocating pressure had fallen from the void as if there was no power to deter it.
At this time, there were streams of light flowed from afar to Ye Futian, Hua Jieyu, and Huang Jiuge, like the light of the Buddha. A lotus lamp lit up at the brow chakra of each one. With the three of them as one, their spiritual power once again increased and expanded. Ye Futian knew that this was Hua Qingqing, who was trying to bestow more power upon the three of them. The other cultivators in the battlefield had pulled back some of their power.
The Halberd of The Halberd of Time and Space was being clenched tightly in his hand. Ye Futian looked up at the cultivators in the void. The blood in his body boiled and he roared. As if affected by his thoughts, Hua Jieyu transmitted her voice to him, “Don’t.” She knew what Ye Futian was trying to do, but until it was absolutely necessary, she did not want Ye Futian to reveal his strength. Especially at this moment, when all eyes of the Nine States were watching, and it was even possible that Emperor Xia had people who were observing this battle. If Ye Futian revealed his secrets, both the Upper and Lower Worlds would know and she did not know what the consequences might be, but it would very likely be disastrous.
Ye Futian also understood that his life was no longer just his own, but belonged to the entire Holy Zhi Palace. If something happened to him, the entire Holy Zhi Palace would also perish. So, unless it was absolutely necessary he would not do so. But now the three holy lands of the Endless Ocean were dead set on killing him. The three super-max battle matrixes could not be breached, except by burning the will of the emperor.
“We will have a chance,” Hua Jieyu whispered softly. From her body came an immense telekinetic power, and her spirit crown bloomed. Threads of telekinetic force spread out between heaven and earth. She closed her eyes as if to completely let go of herself. Glimpses of glory sprinkled from the sky, falling upon Hua Jieyu’s body. Her mind seemed to perceive an unknown world where there was an unparalleled figure sitting above the sky, like the Jiutian Goddess.
Behind Hua Jieyu, an illusion of the Jiutian Goddess gradually emerged, and it was extremely radiant. There was a powerful storm of telekinesis appearing in this world, with the wind whistling. Everyone could feel the existence of that power.
“Jieyu.” Ye Futian looked at Hua Jieyu. What ability was this? He had never heard Jieyu mention it before.
“Move!” Yang Qi spat. From that telekinetic power, he actually sensed danger. The golden Sacred Pagoda in his hand fell straight down, and in a flash, the Sacred Pagoda quickly enlarged and turned into a golden mountain. Many radiant light screens hung down from it and crushed everything. At the same time, the spiritual power of the cultivators of Celestial Cliffs transformed into one, and all of it was poured into the Sacred Pagoda. Endless glory poured down, suppressing and erasing all existence below.
Ye Futian saw that the Sacred Pagoda blast towards Hua Jieyu, and in a flash, he walked into the void and appeared instantly in the sky above Hua Jieyu. The vast space created a horrible space solidification rule force, affecting the speed with which the Sacred Pagoda was traveling. But the golden brilliance that erased everything crushed the rules and smashed toward Ye Futian. Loud booming noises rumbled, and the brilliance of the stars was also shattered.
Roar! A thunderous roar was heard and the Divine Ape appeared behind Ye Futian, whose body flew back. The Halberd of Time and Space in his hands turned into a long stick, and a golden star appeared around it aiming directly to the Sacred Pagoda. A loud dinging sound rang out, the Sacred Pagoda rocketed to the sky, but Ao Feng and Kun of the North Deep also launched their attack and did not intend to give Ye Futian another chance.
There were turbulent waves coming, and the trident gathered a terrible storm. Where Kun of the North Deep was, a Kunpeng flew on widespread wings. Kun of the North Deep stood in front of the Kunpeng, Spear of Darkness in hand, and slammed it down. A destructive black hole that could swallow all things creeped out. All the storms of destruction now pushed toward Ye Futian, wanting to place him in despair without giving him any chance to fight back.
Boom. At this time, the shadow of a saint appeared behind Hua Jieyu. Her long hair flew in the wind, her spiritual will released to the limit. Her beautiful and radiant eyes opened and turned skyward, and those deep eyes suggested an enchanted beauty as if every strand of will between heaven and earth was presented in her mind.
At this moment, the cultivators of all three holy lands, who were attacking Ye Futian, felt an invisible power of telekinesis shroud them. It was as if it was everywhere, threatening their spiritual willpower. Moreover, that power of telekinesis had subtly converged into a savage spiritual storm.
“Telekinesis of Thunder.” Hua Jieyu’s eyes released purple lightning. In this instance, an invisible storm of destruction was born between heaven and earth, directly attacking all the cultivators from the three holy lands who were in the space just like the ravages of the Divine Path. All the cultivators’ minds experienced a fierce shock, and their spiritual will was unsteadied.
Huang Jiuge also felt this power. His body also seemed to start burning up. The most sacred Renhuang bow shot through the void toward the cultivators, aiming to kill. Ye Futian’s palms stretched out toward the void, releasing his spiritual power all the way, and he shouted, “Star Prison.” A star was directly buried in the void, as if drowning all the cultivators within it, and he turned himself into a lightning bolt and blasted directly into the prison.
Boom. The stars exploded instantly and the trident and the spear of destruction appeared at the same time. However, Ye Futian had already rushed into it. This blow was not to prevent the opponent’s attack but to interfere with their judgment.
The force of Time and Space solidification appeared as if to completely seal the space. The speed of the Spear of Darkness slowed, and Ye Futian rushed past the spear of destruction. A terrible black hole vortex was pierced by the Halberd of Time and Space, torn and pulverized, but that attack also madly hurt Ye Futian.
Kun of the North Deep saw Ye Futian come straight for him and he pulled his body back. The Kunpeng’s sharp claws grabbed him back while Ye Futian continued his charge forward. However, he did not attack him. Instead, he attacked the belly of the Kunpeng battle matrix, the Halberd of Time and Space slashing out.
Boom! The destructive power that smashed everything bloomed, and the body of Kunpeng shattered and the battle matrix collapsed. Naturally, Hua Jieyu would not let such an opportunity go to waste. Her eyes of enchanted beauty swept to that space, and at this moment, within the collapsed battle matrix of the Kunpeng, those cultivators only felt that their spirit had no defense and they were in the middle of a storm. Over yonder, there seemed to be a goddess appearing, staring at them. The brilliant lightning them right in their minds. The bodies of the cultivators swayed violently. Arrows crossed the sky, and with a sharp sound, they shot through the heads!
