On the third day after Gu Hai left Divine Farmer City, a new guest arrived outside the Yan Nation’s capital. It was a yellow-robed man with a large yellow calabash on his back.
This was none other than Lu Ya, the Supreme Singularity’s son.
Lu Ya stood in front of a thousand azure-clad men on a mountaintop.
The leader of the azure-clad men was the Azure Emperor’s Upper Heavenly Palace Realm subordinate who had attempted to assassinate Jiang Lianshan with him. Although he was just an early-stage Upper Heavenly Palace Realm cultivator, he was still among the peak in this world.
The one thousand men behind him showed ferocious expressions as they faced Lu Ya.
“Who are you? Why are you blocking us? Are you with Gu Hai?” the leading Upper Heavenly Palace Realm expert demanded while glaring.
“The Azure Emperor’s deathsworn?” Lu Ya narrowed his eyes.
“What does it have to do with you? Humph! Gu Hai went this way. We are pursuing him, and you appeared. Are you helping Gu Hai by blocking us?” That Upper Heavenly Palace Realm expert glared.
“This means Gu Hai has left Divine Farmer City?” Lu Ya said indifferently.
“Milord, don’t bother with this strange person. Just kill him since he is blocking us!”
“That’s right. We have to take revenge for the imperial lord. Gu Hai killed the imperial lord using despicable means while the imperial lord was injured. He has to die!”
“We have to take revenge for the imperial lord!”
These one thousand people were incensed.
The Upper Heavenly Palace Realm leader was grieving and cared for nothing else now. “Humph! Gu Hai is definitely right in front. Kill him!”
One thousand experts swarmed Lu Ya.
Lu Ya revealed a faint sneer. “Treasure, please turn around!”
As Lu Ya snorted coldly, a flash came from Lu Ya’s calabash.
This light was very dazzling, illuminating the mountaintop.
A saber flew out and immediately flew back into the calabash. Only then did the light disappear.
Lu Ya flung out his sleeves, turned his head, and took to the sky, ignoring the people behind.
The heads of the Azure Emperor’s one thousand subordinates, including that Upper Heavenly Palace Realm cultivator, flew off. All of them goggled in incredulity.
One saber strike to kill one thousand.
One thousand bodies fell to the ground.
Lu Ya continued flying.
“It looks like Gu Hai has not gone far. Humph! You can’t escape!” Lu Ya said with a faint, cold smile.
Lu Ya immediately sped into the distance, leaving only an afterimage.
Borderless Heavenly Capital, Han Royal Dynasty:
At this moment, a group of unwelcome guests arrived outside Borderless Heavenly Capital. A black angel had brought tens of thousands of ordinary angels to the city.
“Elder, that is Gu Hai’s Han Royal Dynasty!” a four-winged angel reported respectfully to that black angel.
“Gu Hai captured the first young master and the second young master. We have no idea where Gu Hai is. Humph! Since we can’t find him, we will just go to his lair. Since he captured our first young master and second young master, we will capture his son!” that black angel said with a sinister expression.
“Yes! Elder is wise!” the angels immediately said.
The black angel narrowed his eyes at the giant floating city.
“Search Borderless Heavenly Capital and capture the palace!” the black angel ordered coldly.
Countless angels flew towards Borderless Heavenly Capital.
When the angels arrived, holy light immediately encased the entire city.
Inside the palace:
“Elder Sister, look! Those are angels! Brother-in-Law previously sent word that angels might come to cause trouble. Indeed, they came!” Long Wanyu said, her eyes lighting up.
As Long Wanqing looked at the angels in the distance rushing over, she revealed a faint, cold smile.
“The Solar Divine Palace’s angels? This is the Han Royal Dynasty. If you take another step forward, then don’t blame this lady for being too harsh!” Long Wanqing said coldly.
Long Wanqing’s voice rang out in the sky.
The black angel’s face sank. “Who are you?!”
“This lady is the Han Royal Dynasty’s empress!” Long Wanqing said.
“Empress?” The black angel’s eyes lit up.
“Hahahaha! It’s Gu Hai’s woman. We were right to come here! Quickly, capture her! Capture Gu Hai’s woman and son! Let’s see whether Gu Hai will release the two young masters after that! Humph! The others do not need to survive. Kill them!” the black angel shouted excitedly.
“Yes!” countless angels answered.
“You are seeking death!” Long Wanqing glared.
“Ten Thousand Swords Return!” Dugu Qiubai’s voice rang out.
Suddenly, millions of sword qi soared into the air, rushing at the countless angels.
Dugu Qiubai’s sword qi were incredibly ferocious, instantly chopping down all the two-winged angels. Many of the sword qi chased the four-winged angels, and only the six-winged angels barely managed to fly away.
Ximen Chuixue quickly killed the angels one by one.
The distant black angel’s expression changed as he instantly approached.
“Elder, save me!” the angels cried out.
The black angel flung out his sleeves and swept many of the angels out of the battlefield.
However, Ximen Chuixue’s sword rushed over as well.
The black angel threw a palm strike, knocking Ximen Chuixue’s sword aside. The powerful aura of an Upper Heavenly Palace Realm cultivator erupted.
The flustered voices of citizens came from below. The aura of an Upper Heavenly Palace Realm cultivator was too strong. The suppression caused several citizens to vomit blood.
“How audacious!” Long Wanqing glared.
The black angel immediately found Long Wanqing by following her voice.
“Hahaha! So, you are here! You are Gu Hai’s woman?” The black angel swooped down with an excited expression.
Zhang Sanfeng, Dugu Qiubai, and Ximen Chuixue immediately rushed over with their swords.
A barrier formed around the black angel and repulsed the three’s swords.
“Humph! The difference between the Middle Heavenly Palace Realm and the Upper Heavenly Palace Realm is not just strength. Ignorant!” the black angel snorted coldly.
The barrier burst open, creating a powerful shock wave that knocked away Zhang Sanfeng, Dugu Qiubai, and Ximen Chuixue.
The black angel moved extremely fast, instantly arriving before Long Wanqing in the palace.
“Your Majesty, be careful!” Startled cries came from the surroundings.
The black angel thrust his hand forward with a malicious smile as though Long Wanqing had no escape.
However, Long Wanqing glared and flung out her sleeves. With a cold expression, she said, “You are seeking death!”
As Long Wanqing spoke, she sent a palm strike at the black angel.
“You overestimate yourself!” The black angel showed a cold smile as he tried to grab Long Wanqing.
Two palms clashed.
Space shook intensely.
The countless angels froze in place when they saw the black angel rebound from Long Wanqing’s attack. As he went flying back, his body’s shape changed dramatically. He eventually exploded, turning into blood mist covering the sky and splattering everywhere.
“How…how can this be?!” some angels stammered in shock.
Black angels were angels who had advanced to eight-winged angels through special methods. He was an eight-winged angel. Even if he was just in the early-stage Upper Heavenly Palace Realm, he should not have exploded with just one palm strike. Exploded?
The eyelids of Zhang Sanfeng, Ximen Chuixue, and Dugu Qiubai twitched wildly.
There were no tricks to it, just pure strength against pure strength. One palm strike to explode an Upper Heavenly Palace Realm cultivator? This was the Han Royal Dynasty’s empress?
“Elder Sister, you are incredible. If only I were as incredible as you,” Long Wanyu said excitedly.
When Long Wanyu cheered, the surviving angels all shivered and immediately turned to flee in horror.
“Quickly leave! Hurry! Flee!” the angels cried out.
“You are thinking of leaving only now? Can you even make it? Ten Thousand Swords Return!” Dugu Qiubai shouted coldly.
Boundless sword qi encircled the angels once more. All the four-winged angels received severe injuries in the blink of an eye, and the six-winged angels barely managed to escape from the Ten Thousand Swords Return’s domain.
Zhang Sanfeng’s sword spun, forcing the fleeing angels to turn back. Then, Ximen Chuixue killed them, his sword instantly cutting off the heads of countless angels.
In the end, only three six-winged angels managed to slip away. After flying out of Borderless Heavenly Capital, they fled in fear.
However, they did not get far.
Whoosh! Whoosh! Whoosh!
Three needles pierced through the heads of the three six-winged angels from behind and came out the front. Then, they turned back and stabbed the angels in the temple.
“What?” The three six-winged angels’ expressions changed.
Dugu Bubai tugged on red threads in his hand.
Boom! Boom! Boom!
The heads of the three six-winged angels exploded.
All the angels that came got wiped out.
Countless citizens and soldiers in Borderless Heavenly Capital showed shocked expressions. They had not expected the problem to be resolved so quickly.
Gu Qin, Gao Xianzhi, Chen Tianshan, and Meng Tai stood in the Soaring Palace Hall’s plaza, showing faint, bitter smiles.
These four had spent three years training in the Asura Path Secret Realm and thought themselves already very incredible. However, when they saw this battle, they felt far inferior to their empress. Furthermore, these four cloud beast experts were ridiculously powerful as well.
The Unborn Man stepped out of the Lifespan Court and looked at the distant palace. When he saw the power of Long Wanqing’s palm strike, he showed a faint smile, happy that Long Wanqing grasped such strength.
However, the Unborn Man’s expression suddenly changed in the next moment. “Something’s not right. There are more experts.”
The Unborn Man suddenly turned his head and looked at a distant mountaintop.
A silver-robed man stood on that peak. This person looked sullenly at the distant Borderless Heavenly Capital.
“Angels? Bunch of trash!” the silver-robed man said coldly.
“Houqing!” the Unborn Man said in shock as his expression changed.
The person that the Unborn Man worried about the most had come.
On one of Gu Hai’s flying ships outside Divine Farmer City:
“Mu Chenfeng and the Elite Hall disciples, escort Ensnaring Performance to the east sea!” Gu Hai instructed.
“Yes!” Mu Chenfeng answered.
“Master, why do I have to go? I don’t like being with Purple Subtlety and Longevity!” Ensnaring Performance said with an unwilling expression.
Gu Hai took out five black medallions and said, “I sent someone to establish contact with them one year ago. They lent me the Black Emperor’s medallion. They were a big help this time. Help me return these to them.”
Ensnaring Performance still appeared unwilling. “But—”
“No buts. The two of them helped me. Now, they need my help, so you must go,” Gu Hai said.
“Alright,” Ensnaring Performance said with a faint, bitter smile.
“Also, immediately report anything that happens,” Gu Hai said.
“Yes!” Ensnaring Performance nodded.
After Mu Chenfeng received Gu Hai’s orders, he led the Elite Hall disciples away, escorting Ensnaring Performance to the east sea.
Most of the people on the flying ship disappeared in the blink of an eye, leaving only four people: Gu Hai, Ao Shun, Yehua, and Yanxuan.
Yehua and Yanxuan were still captives like before, so they were not in a good mood.
“Hall Master, it is just the four of us now. Should this subordinate carry us? We will be faster that way,” Ao Shun asked.
Gu Hai shook his head, looking at the surrounding mountain forest.
“You have been following me for quite a while already, right? Come on out!” Gu Hai called out.
“Huh?” Ao Shun’s expression changed.Chapters for August: 07 / 30
