Chapter 761: A Piercing Lance Strike
When the warriors in front of the Umbriferous Divine Palace saw this scene, they were all overcome with fear.
It was not in awe of the Black-armored Demon God using his aura to disperse a Yuan Opening realm expert's soul sea, but that Yi Yun could so casually order the Black-armored Demon God, like he was his war slave.
"Just now… Just now… " A legendary human figures, who had lived more than ten thousand years, said with a stutter through his quivering lips.
Yi Yun had called him the… Black Demon Puppet!
Could the stalwart man be Yi Yun's puppet!?
However… this stalwart man's aura and his suppressive feeling made everyone certain that he was definitely the Black-armored Demon God!
Even if he wasn't, he was definitely a terrifying existence not much different from the Black-armored Demon God!
Such an existence was causally ordered around by Yi Yun?
Black Demon Puppet… Black-armored Demon God...
Could it be… ?
A legendary Tian Yuan world figure suddenly realized a crazy possibility. That was… Yi Yun had managed to refine the Black-armored Demon God into his puppet!
After some peerless figures died, it was possible for them to be refined into puppets.
When he proposed this idea, all the warriors present were flabbergasted.
How was it possible that Yi Yun had killed the Black-armored Demon God and then refined him into a puppet!?
They could no longer think carefully as Yi Yun and the Black-armored Demon God's appearance placed a huge pressure on them. With their minds oppressed, it was difficult for them to have any thoughts.
Many of them, especially the older freaks that had lived more than ten thousand years, were now breaking out into cold sweat!
Although they admired Yi Yun, and marveled the battle of cosmic proportions that Yi Yun had with the Black-armored Demon God, they had sought refuge under the Sovereign of the Eventide for their survival and future!
They knew deep, down in their hearts, what sort of person the Sovereign of the Eventide was. The legendary human figures knew that his claim of Yi Yun being human, and how that meant that the God Advent Tower belonged to the Human race was something absolutely not in line with Yi Yun's will.
With the Sovereign of the Eventide treating Yi Yun as an enemy, then by following him, it was equivalent to betraying Yi Yun!
What sort of outcome would it be, having betrayed Yi Yun?
They did not dare to think any farther. Maybe the younger ones would be better off. They were young and unaware of the truth, but for those above the Yuan Opening realm, or even those old freaks that had reached half-step into the Heaven Ascension realm, they were in for trouble.
Yi Yun ignored these people. He only coldly stared at the Eventide Monk in front of him. In fact, Yi Yun had arrived here a long time ago. He too had heard the Sovereign of the Eventide's passionate speech. From that, he learned that the Sovereign of the Eventide had attacked the Desolate race and had stolen the God Advent Tower.
After the battle in the remote mountains, all the legendary Desolate race figures were injured and they had suffered a drop in cultivation realms. However, the Sovereign of the Eventide had been absent in battle, allowing him to perfectly preserve his strength. And it seemed that the Sovereign of the Eventide's strength had increased compared to their initial meeting at the Tian Yuan Elder Consortium.
Under these circumstances, Yi Yun was very worried that the Sovereign of the Eventide had done something irreparable to the Desolate race.
Yi Yun grabbed the Eventide Monk with one hand, and he directly searched his soul!
The art of soul searching only allowed one to obtain vague information. For example, it was impossible to obtain any nomological heritage through this method.
However, for Yi Yun, that was already enough!
Instantly, whatever the Sovereign of the Eventide did to the Desolate race, including his attack on Jiang Xiaorou and using her as a threat, had been seen by Yi Yun.
Yi Yun's face sank all of a sudden. Murderous intent boiled around him as he locked onto the Sovereign of the Eventide with a cold gaze!
At that instant, people felt that Yi Yun was like a primordial divine beast. No one could stop him from killing anyone!
"You… are... so... deserving... of... death… !"
Yi Yun articulated his sentence word after word, embodying actual killing intent. He locked onto every part of the Sovereign of the Eventide's body.
The Sovereign of the Eventide felt all the energy in his meridians retarded in their flow. He felt fear, a stifling fear.
In his long life, this was the first time that he had experienced so much fear. He knew that he was a life form not on the same level as Yi Yun.
And at this moment, the Black-armored Demon God stretched out his arm and swiped it across the void.
The void was ripped apart by the Black-armored Demon God as numerous lightning gathering around the spatial rift. A terrifying spatial storm began to sweep up.
A long lance that had black lightning winding around it flew out of the spatial rift, and into the Black-armored Demon God's hand!
It was the Black-armored Demon God's weapon. Back in his battle with Yi Yun, the Black-armored Demon God had thrown this weapon, dropping it in the Tian Yuan world. Finally, when the Black-armored Demon God entered his slumber, the black lance had disappeared into the void.
Now, with the Black-armored Demon God returning, a casual stroke to rip the void apart allowed him to retrieve his weapon.
With the lance in hand, the Black-armored Demon God's gaze locked onto the Sovereign of the Eventide!
The Black-armored Demon God moved. Like a tornado touching down, he charged at the Sovereign of the Eventide!
The terrifying aura restricted the Sovereign of the Eventide's body. He faced the direct assault from the Black-armored Demon God with a pale face. His strength was being repressed, preventing him from using even 20% of his energy. And even if he could use all his strength, he was in no way a match for the Black-armored Demon God!
"Peng! Peng! Peng!"
With the explosion of blood and flesh, the lance's suppression caused several Eventide Monks beside the Sovereign of the Eventide to turn into a mist of blood!
A single strike by the Black-armored Demon God was something that no one could withstand! Even Yi Yun had to use the Dao Leaf's strength, or he would not have been able to withstand his attack.
The Sovereign of the Eventide roared as he bit his tongue, spitting out a mouthful of blood essence. At the risk of exploding his meridians, he finally broke through the restrictions of the Black-armored Demon God's aura, allowing him to use the strength in his Dantian.
He suddenly threw out a pale gold seal, slamming it at the Black-armored Demon God!
The pale gold seal, which had been tempered numerous time while being kept in the Sovereign of the Eventide's Dantian, had shattered. In front of the Black-armored Demon God's lance, it was like loess that could not withstand a single strike!
The Sovereign of the Eventide's facial features distorted as he spat out fresh blood. The attack that he burned his blood essence for had failed to hinder the Black-armored Demon God.
The black lance did not lose momentum, piercing the Sovereign of the Eventide's chest directly!
The Sovereign of the Eventide was dangling on the Black-armored Demon God's lance after having been pierced!
He did not die, but he was grabbing desperately at the black lance's body while trembling incessantly.
The Sovereign of the Eventide, who had a tall built, only reached the Black-armored Demon God's chest. As the Black-armored Demon God stood in front of the Umbriferous Divine Palace, he lifted the Sovereign of the Eventide up with his lance.
At this moment, the Black-armored Demon God's body was burning with black flames. He looked like an invincible evil demon that emerged from hell!
Upon seeing this scene, the people around could not help but tremble. The Sovereign of the Eventide, whose strength stood at the peak of the Tian Yuan world, had been in high spirits, announcing his dream of establishing a faction in the 12 Empyrean Heavens. But now, he was being dangled like a dead dog by the Black-armored Demon God on his lance. Resistance was futile.
That was the Black-armored Demon God, a terrifying existence that far exceeded the Tian Yuan world's strength!
As for Yi Yun… He had killed the Black-armored Demon God, and even refined the Black-armored Demon God into his puppet. Then, what sort of extent had Yi Yun's strength reached?
Translator’s Notes: Too bad for the SotE that Yi Yun learned about Jiang Xiaorou, if not he probably would have only gotten a bricking. When it comes to a grudge, there’s no fun and games for Yi Yun. And through this, we see again how much Yi Yun treasures his loved ones, and it’s really not the best choice to pick on any of them.
Yi Yun sure is enjoying have the BADG to order around, getting him to do all the dirty work. As expected, the SotE is no match against the BADG, and we see him have a tragic end.
As for those followers who either blindly or intentionally came to seek refuge with the SotE, what would be their outcome?
