Chapter 764: Everything is Over
Lin Xintong, Yi Yun, as well as the Black-armored Demon God! Furthermore… dangling on the Black-armored Demon God's lance was a half-dead middle-aged man. After scrutinizing the man's look, everyone was stunned. Isn't that… the Sovereign of the Eventide?
The Sovereign of the Eventide was the strongest warrior in the Tian Yuan world and the Divine Wilderness! In recent times, the Human and Desolate race's greatest enemy was the Black-armored Demon God, but the Black-armored Demon God had yet to appear, so they were wary of the Sovereign of the Eventide only. He wanted to use all the resources in the entire world to escape to the 12 Empyrean Heavens. He was like a venomous snake that lurked in the dark, threatening to bite them at any time.
But now, the Sovereign of the Eventide dangling on the Black-armored Demon God's lance...
What... the hell... happened?
Had the Black-armored Demon God controlled Yi Yun and Lin Xintong, then kill the Sovereign of the Eventide?
The Human and Desolate race warriors were momentarily at a loss. Even Shepherd Boy, who was the Commander, was shocked.
He could clearly tell that the scene in front of him did not look like Yi Yun had been enslaved by the Black-armored Demon God. On the contrary, it looked like Yi Yun had enslaved the Black-armored Demon God because he was following Yi Yun.
The Black-armored Demon God had been subdued? Was that even possible?
The allied force's array had its Yuan Qi columns broken as a result of Yi Yun and the Black-armored Demon God's appearance. At this moment, the desolate bone relics were burning crazily in the array, but no one could care for them.
"Phew! Phew! Phew!
At this moment, more than twenty beams of light flew into the sky from all corners of the remote mountains.
The Sanctuary Island couple, the former Desolate Queen, as well as the legendary human and Desolate race figures, had all been stirred.
When the Black-armored Demon God came flying towards the remote mountains, with the terrifying pressure, as well as the momentum that drained the Heaven Earth Yuan Qi dry, how could they not have discovered the sudden change?
More than twenty Human and Desolate race Empyreal Kings were scattered everywhere in the sky with Yi Yun, who was clad in black and had chiselled facial features, in the middle. From top to bottom, there was a majestic and aggressive aura that lingered around him, causing apprehension in the people around him.
Beside Yi Yun was Lin Xintong in her snow-white dress, as well as the Black-armored Demon God, who was dangling the Sovereign of the Eventide on his lance!
The stalwart but horrific Demon God seemed to appear extremely respectful to Yi Yun.
"Sanctuary Island Lord, Your Majesty, it's been a while." Yi Yun casually cupped his fists and greeted them.
The Sanctuary Island Lord opened his mouth, unsure of what to say.
He pointed at the Black-armored Demon God and said, "That... is the Black-armored Demon God!?"
"Yes." Yi Yun nodded his head, and said, "I was sealed in an alternate dimension and I was at the end of the rope. But in the final moment, I happened to gain some insights into spatial dimension laws by chance, allowing me to break the spatial barrier open. I then killed the Black-armored Demon God, and then refined his body into a Black Demon puppet. After all this, I returned to the Divine Wilderness."
"As for the Sovereign of the Eventide, I have learned of the sins that he has committed in the past year. So I captured him, bringing him here so that he can repent for his sins."
Yi Yun mentioned what happened casually, but when his words entered the ears of others, they were all dumbfounded.
Sealed into an alternate dimension, gaining some insights into the spatial dimension laws 'by chance'!?
Spatial dimension laws were already extremely difficult to learn or master. Few people in the entire Tian Yuan world could do it. Furthermore, Yi Yun did not know any spatial dimension laws in the past, preventing him from being able to escape the alternate dimension. Yet, he had managed to gain some insights into the spatial dimension laws by himself, returning to the Divine Wilderness. This method of gaining insight into spatial dimension laws sounded like child's play!
As for killing the Black-armored Demon God, refining his body into a Black Demon puppet… that rendered the legendary human and Desolate race figures even more speechless. They had been cultivating arduously for the Black-armored Demon God here, day in and day out. They were already determined to fight to the death. But on Yi Yun's side… he had already killed the Black-armored Demon God, and he even refined him into a puppet!
As for finally dangling the Sovereign of the Eventide on the lance, that was considered nothing. With Yi Yun having the strength to kill the Black-armored Demon God, dangling a hundred Sovereign of the Eventides was nothing difficult, what more one!?
"Young master Yi, you really are… " The Sanctuary Island Lord attempted to say something, but he stopped himself midway a few times. He was completely at a loss how to express the feelings he harbored.
"Sanctuary Island Lord, Your Majesty, the Sovereign of the Eventide shall be left to you."
As Yi Yun said that, the Black-armored Demon God swiped his lance, while the Sovereign of the Eventide let out a painful grunt. The wounds that sported black blood had been torn open once again as his body flew off the lance's tip.
Being removed from a lance that was about the thickness of a baby's wrist was excruciatingly painful. The Sovereign of the Eventide spat out blood and there was a tragic smile on his pale face. His Dantian had been shattered by Yi Yun, and his cultivation was crippled. He was only left hanging on his last breath.
All he wished now was death, but Yi Yun deliberately left him alive.
"Eventide!" The Sanctuary Island Lord sighed.
For a mighty figure of a generation to come to such an end, he found it extremely regrettable.
He had the intention to give the Sovereign of the Eventide a quick death. But the way that the former Desolate Queen stared at the Sovereign of the Eventide, there was still a deep sense of hatred in her.
Even though the Sovereign of the Eventide's outcome was currently so miserable, it could not resolve the hate that the former Desolate Queen had for him. Jiang Xiaorou had nearly lost her life because of him.
The former Desolate Queen waved her hand, sending dozens of seals to infuse themselves into the Sovereign of the Eventide's body.
These seals repressed the vitality of the Sovereign of the Eventide, but they also prevented his death temporarily.
"Throw him into the dungeons!"
The former Desolate Queen directly threw the Sovereign of the Eventide downwards.
And at this moment, Yi Yun scanned the crowd and he saw a red-dressed figure standing on one of the tall mountains...
"Yun-er!" A crisp voice echoed.
Standing on a cliff, Jiang Xiaorou looked at Yi Yun with eyes brimming with tears.
Yi Yun had disappeared for a year, and during this time, Jiang Xiaorou constantly worried about him. Yi Yun had been sealed in an alternate dimension, with slim chances of survival. Even the Sanctuary Island couple, who said that Yi Yun would definitely return, did not believe their own words deep down.
As for Jiang Xiaorou, she was enduring the devouring of her life force from the Darkness energy, while waiting for Yi Yun's return.
It was like she had returned to more than a decade ago, during their last few moments in the Cloud Wilderness. Yi Yun had gone to the Tao tribal clan to participate in the Jin Long Wei's selection. As for Jiang Xiaorou, she had no choice but to hide deep in the mountains, afraid that the Lian tribal clan would look for her. She spent every day in a tree house in the mountains, waiting for Yi Yun's return.
She even remembered that scene on that day so many years ago, where Yi Yun returned while riding a Jin Long Wei mount, dressed in a flying fish robe.
And because of his return, everything had changed.
"Sis Xiaorou… "
Yi Yun's figure flashed and he had already landed on the cliff, standing in front of Jiang Xiaorou...
It was over. At least in the world where the Tian Yuan world and the Divine Wilderness was, everything was over.
Yi Yun held Jiang Xiaorou's hand. As the rays of the sun shone down on the remote mountains, it illuminated Jiang Xiaorou's pale skin like dancing golden pixies.
The bit of cinnabar in the middle of her eyebrows bathed in the sunlight and it looked like a blooming red plum...
Yi Yun sensed that Jiang Xiaorou's life force had not been weakened by the Darkness energy, and was relieved.
"Sis Xiaorou, I'll help you extract the Darkness energy."
With the Purple Crystal Origins, even if Yi Yun did not know the Laws of Darkness, it was still possible for him to do such a trivial thing.
However, Jiang Xiaorou shook her head as she softly said, "There's no need. I will slowly make it disappear."
