Translator: Nyoi-Bo Studio Editor: Nyoi-Bo Studio
Two slender figures stood with their hands placed behind their backs outside Northern Wilderness Hill, and the moment they appeared, the Demonic Power that had engulfed the area suddenly weakened.
“Flame Emperor, Martial Ancestor!”
When Qin Tian and the Green Shirt Sword Saint saw the two figures, they were elated. Although the rest of the people thought that the Flame Emperor and Martial Ancestor were masters at the later stage of the Divine Heavenly Sovereign level, and they were no different from Qin Tian and the other masters, only Qin Tian and the masters knew the might of the Flame Emperor and Martial Ancestor. With the two of them around, the situation became better.
“Hohoho, gentlemen, please pardon us for being late. The Extraterritorial Race has tried all means to hold us up.” The Flame Emperor turned around and smiled at Qin Tian and the masters. His reassuring smile helped to ease the anxiety of the Heavenly Sovereigns who were present.
“We do not blame you.” Qin Tian shook his head. He looked embarrassed and said, “I am the one who has caused the situation to be in such bad shape.”
The Flame Emperor sighed and said, “This is not your fault, Brother Qin. Back then, I sensed the Seed of the Heart Demon, but I wasn’t sure about it. Thus, I have planted the Seed of Fire in you as a precautionary measure.”
The Martial Ancestor nodded as well and said, “The most important thing that we have to do now is to handle the situation.” He then lifted up his head and looked coldly at the Heavenly Evil Deity in the distance. His gaze was so sharp that he looked as though he were about to pierce through the Heavenly Evil Deity.
The Saint Heaven Demon Emperor said, “Flame Emperor, Martial Ancestor, I have sent out six clans to stop you. I am surprised that they were still unable to stop you!” He was no longer amazed as he looked coldly at the two of them.
The Flame Emperor and Martial Ancestor looked at each other and smiled. “Are you referring to them?” The two of them stretched out their hands, and spiritual light rose up from their palms to form a circle. The circles each had three Demonic Shadows in them. The Demonic Shadows were roaring and hitting crazily against the circles, but their efforts were futile.
When the Saint Heaven Demon Emperor saw the six Demonic Shadows, he was shocked. Even the main clan leaders who were beside him turned pale. The six Demonic Shadows were the six main clan leaders of the 32 Main Clans!
The six of them possessed the power of a Heaven Demon Emperor, and they were comparable to the masters who were at the later stage of the Divine Heavenly Sovereign level. However, they had been captured by the Flame Emperor and Martial Ancestor!
“Do you think that these six Heaven Demon Emperors are able to defeat the Endless Fire Territory and the Martial Border? You have underestimated us,” the Martial Ancestor said and sounded oppressive.
The Saint Heaven Demon Emperor’s eyes twitched. He looked fierce, and he said in a cold voice, “Release them. Otherwise, your Endless Fire Territory and Martial Border will not have any peace.”
When the Flame Emperor and Martial Ancestor heard his threat, they squinted. Their gaze was so cold that it caused one to feel chills down one’s spine. They responded to the threat with action. They slowly clenched their fists, and a horrifying power shot into the circle. The power was so mighty that it crushed the six Demonic Shadows even before they had a chance to scream. The six powerful Heaven Demon Emperors had been utterly destroyed.
When the Saint Heaven Demon Emperor, the Dark Heaven Demon Emperor, and the rest of the Heaven Demon Emperors saw what had happened, their faces turned ghastly pale, and their eyes became cold.
“Hohoho, this is interesting.” The Heavenly Evil Deity, who was standing in front of the Saint Heaven Demon Emperor and the rest, looked amused when he saw the scene. He then fixed his gaze on the Flame Emperor and Martial Ancestor and said, “The two of you are more powerful than these people.”
Although the Saint Heaven Demon Emperor and the rest of the Heaven Demon Emperors were oblivious to the Flame Emperor and Martial Ancestor’s power, the Heavenly Evil Deity was able to sense the spiritual energy in them. The two of them were more powerful than Qin Tian and the masters.
The Flame Emperor and Martial Ancestor fixed their gazes on the Heavenly Evil Deity, and they looked grim. “You must be the Heavenly Evil Deity whom the Immortal Emperor sealed up by sacrificing his life,” the Flame Emperor said.
The Heavenly Evil Deity smiled. He looked at them and said, “Back then, I underestimated the Immortal Emperor. I had never expected there to be such a powerful person in the Great Thousand World.”
The Martial Ancestor stood up tall, and he said with his deep voice, “There are many geniuses in our Great Thousand World. Back then, the Immortal Emperor stopped you from destroying the Great Thousand World. Now, there are still people who can do so.”
“Oh?” The Heavenly Evil Deity raised his brows and smiled. He stared at the Flame Emperor and Martial Ancestor and said, “Now that the Immortal Emperor is no longer around, I am interested to find out who in your Great Thousand World can stop me!”
The Flame Emperor smiled and said, “You look down on our Great Thousand World simply because you think that no one in our Great Thousand World is able to reach the realm of the Immortal Emperor.”
The Heavenly Evil Deity squinted, and for the first time, his expression changed. He stared at the Flame Emperor and asked, “What realm are you referring to?”
“The Divine Heavenly Sovereign level is the highest level in our Great Thousand World. To transcend this level is another world,” the Flame Emperor said casually.
Qin Tian, the Green Shirt Sword Saint, and the rest were shocked, and they listened attentively to the Flame Emperor. They had reached the later stage of the Divine Heavenly Sovereign level, and they seemed to have reached the peak. No matter how much effort they put in their cultivation, they were unable to make any further progress. They had heard of people transcending the Divine Heavenly Sovereign level, but they had been unable to do so.
“To transcend the Divine Heavenly Sovereign level is not as enigmatic as it seems. It is all about opportunity.” The Flame Emperor smiled and said, “The opportunity is…”
“The World’s Willpower.” This time around, the Martial Ancestor was the one who spoke. Although he sounded calm, when he spoke, Qin Tian and the rest of the people felt as though the entire Great Thousand World was quaking. The spiritual energy in the Great Thousand World seemed to become stronger.
“The World’s Willpower?” Qin Tian and the other masters muttered. They were suddenly enlightened, but they were still unable to reach it. They seemed unable to connect themselves to this ineffable realm.
“The World’s Willpower?” Mu Chen lifted up his head and looked at the Heavenly Evil Deity, the Flame Emperor, and the Martial Ancestor. He was shocked as well, and light glittered in his eyes. As thoughts ran through his mind, spiritual light indistinctly flashed in his eyes, and he was enlightened.
“The different cultivation paths lead to the same place. The Heavenly Sovereigns can call out the spiritual energy of the heavens and earth to bless him. There is a World’s Willpower in the Great Thousand World. If one can sense the Willpower and ingrain his True Spirit into the world to activate its might, this realm is known as transcending the Divine Heavenly Sovereign level.” The voices of the Flame Emperor and Martial Ancestor resonated in the area. All the Heavenly Sovereigns listened attentively to them, and they saw things a different light.
They finally realized what it meant to transcend the Divine Heavenly Sovereign level.
Activate the might of the world? Mu Chen was amazed. When one stepped into the Divine Heavenly Sovereign level, he could control the spiritual energy of an area and merge with it. However, as compared to controlling the entire Great Thousand World, this was nothing. Mu Chen could not imagine the power that one would exude if the might of the entire Great Thousand World were to fall on him.
The Flame Emperor looked at the Heavenly Evil Deity, who had turned gloomy, and said, “Back then, the Immortal Emperor used the power of the Great Thousand World to seal you up.”
The Heavenly Evil Deity stared at the Flame Emperor and Martial Ancestor, and after a long while, he said, “I am surprised that both of you know this secret. However, it is useless if you simply know the theory! From the beginning until now, only one person in the Great Thousand World was able to activate the World’s Willpower, and that was the Immortal Emperor. Both of you can go on and say whatever you like, but the Great Thousand World will not be able escape from the calamity this day.”
When the Heavenly Evil Deity ended his statement, a destructive Demonic Energy swirled out from his body. The Demonic Energy covered a large area, including the continents that were around Northern Wilderness Hill.
In the face of the destructive Demonic Energy from the Heavenly Evil Deity, the Flame Emperor and Martial Ancestor remained calm. They looked at each other and slowly shut their eyes. After they shut their eyes, Mu Chen, Qin Tian, and all the Heavenly Sovereigns were taken aback. At that instant, they could indistinctly feel a slight tremor in every corner of the Great Thousand World.
Following that, the spiritual energy of the entire Great Thousand World suddenly surged. Mu Chen and the rest of the Heavenly Sovereigns lifted up their heads in amazement as they sensed an indescribable spiritual energy gathering toward Northern Wilderness Hill. The spiritual energy was so powerful, that even the masters at the later stage of the Divine Heavenly Sovereign level were petrified by it.
Mu Chen and the rest lifted up their heads, and they did not even dare to blink. They looked at the void and saw the Demonic Energy suddenly shake as it was torn apart.
Several Spiritual Energy Beams came down from the heavens and pierced through the vast Demonic Energy. Within a short while, the Demonic Energy that had engulfed the continents was being pierced through by the Spiritual Energy Beams.
The Spiritual Energy Beams were different from an ordinary spiritual energy. They carried with them horrifying might, and even the slightest bit of might was enough to cause the Heavenly Sovereigns to tremble.
The Flame Emperor and Martial Ancestor opened their eyes and looked coldly at the Heavenly Evil Deity. Their voices resounded in the area, “You can choose not to believe it. However, we shall let you see for yourself that although the Immortal Emperor has passed on, our Great Thousand World is not here for you to trample on.”
