Chapter 342: Barging Into the Heavenly Saber Pavilion
Advancing from Martial Saint to Martial King was a major hurdle for cultivators. Once they crossed that hurdle, they would be able to enjoy the treatment of an expert anywhere within the Great Qin Nation.
The earlier they crossed that hurdle, the better their future accomplishments would be.
Xiao Cheng had honestly told Liu Ruyue about his comprehension of states. Within the Great Qin Nation, aside from some experts from the older generation, regarding comprehension of states, he was unrivaled among the younger generation. Liu Ruyue had benefited greatly from it.
It was hard to avoid disputes when they were so engrossed in their conversation. So the two of them would compare notes against each other, perfecting their comprehensions with a fight.
Such interaction was more useful than Xiao Chen pondering on his own. After a week, Xiao Chen was able to perfect the Wukui Reveals Heaven that he was unable to complete previously.
Such conversations allowed Xiao Chen to gain substantial benefits. This got him even more engrossed in such satisfying conversations. He went to Liu Ruyue’s courtyard almost every night.
This particular day, the two of them were chatting happily when loud explosions came from thousands of meters above the Heavenly Saber Pavilion.
Seven huge meteors descended above Qingyun Peak in the night sky. As they descended, they broke the 81 barriers of the Heavenly Saber Pavilion.
A piercing alarm rang throughout the entire Lingyun Mountain Range. It gave the impression of urgency as it rang non-stop.
Occasionally, there would be someone soaring in the air above the seven great Peaks of the Heavenly Saber Pavilion. Their aura was spread everywhere, a fearsome fighting spirit ignited.
Xiao Chen and Liu Ruyue’s expressions both changed. There was actually someone daring enough to barge into the Heavenly Saber Pavilion?
Liu Ruyue’s expression turned grave as she looked at the summit of Qingyun Peak. She said, “Both of us should not make a move blindly. We are not qualified to participate in a fight of this level.”
Without Liu Ruyue saying anything, Xiao Chen could also feel the horrifying pressure. The seven meteors actually contained the aura of Martial Monarchs.
Just thinking about it would cause one to tremble in fear. There were only ten known Martial Monarchs in the entire Great Qin Nation. Yet, seven Martial Monarchs appeared at the Heavenly Saber Pavilion.
The strength of a Martial Monarch was sufficient to destroy a city-state on their own. With seven Martial Monarchs, that was like having an army of several hundred thousand soldiers.
Martial Monarch…Martial Monarch…Monarchs of the Martial Path. This title was not given casually. Even in the Great Jin Nation, a nation with many Spirit Veins, Martial Monarchs were considered experts.
Furthermore, there had been no news of Martial Sages appearing in the Great Qin Nation for the past thousand years. Hence, Martial Monarch was the peak combat force that could be found.
If a sect or clan possessed a Martial Monarch, they could instantly become a great power.
As for the people who were soaring into the sky, they were all Superior Grade Martial Kings. Given Xiao Chen’s cultivation realm, even if he went, the shockwaves from the battle alone would turn his flesh to ash and crush his bones to dust.
It was unknown how many Martial Monarchs were in the Heavenly Saber Pavilion. Given this sudden danger, Xiao Chen could potentially see what the Heavenly Saber Pavilion’s trump cards were.
Xiao Chen looked at the sky and asked out of doubt, “Why did these people come?”
Liu Ruyue muttered, “Divine Weapon!”
The seven meteors in the sky pierced through the barriers laid by the Heavenly Saber Pavilion. Flames burst out and countless sparks flew through the sky rapidly.
“Bang! Bang! Bang!”
The sparks fell like rain, falling on half of the Heavenly Saber Pavilion’s land. When the landed on the ground, they gave off intense explosions. Shockwaves surged everywhere, dirt filled the air.
Countless buildings were destroyed and turned into rubble. The sparks smashed into many cultivators who could not react fast enough, they were reduced to dust in the explosion, dying without a complete corpse.
Every place in the Heavenly Saber Pavilion became chaotic. A significant number of places were razed to the ground. A huge fire covered a great area.
A few sparks flew toward Liu Ruyue’s courtyard. The two had seen the power contained in the sparks and did not dare to clash against them. They executed their Movement Techniques and quickly dodged.
In the nest moment, the previously perfectly fine courtyard was blasted to smithereens. Countless pieces of rubble pelted the two, along with the shockwaves.
The two turned around and sent out a few strands of sharp saber Qi to deal with the rubble and shockwaves.
After the sparks scattered, seven middle-aged men in azure robes appeared before everyone. There were nine azure dragons embroidered on their robes.
The seven released a surging, overwhelming aura. This put a huge pressure on Xiao Chen below.
Many Heavenly Saber Pavilion disciples who looked up were unable to withstand this pressure. They simply fell prostrate to the ground, unable to get up after that.
The combined aura of the seven Martial Monarchs was equivalent to that of a Martial Sage. It was sufficient to make rivers stop flowing, let alone mere Martial Saint cultivators.
“Who dares barge into my Heavenly Saber Pavilion?! How reckless!”
Several hundred Martial Kings from the Heavenly Saber Pavilion flew over. The person leading them did not feel any fear toward the seven Martial Monarchs. This could be heard from the tone of how his voice.
“Are you even worthy of speaking to us?” one of the seven azure-robed Martial Monarch snorted coldly. He casually waved his hand and a ripple appeared in the air. After a while, it turned into a hurricane that was launched at the person who spoke.
When the person who spoke was struck by the hurricane, he immediately vomited a mouthful of blood and fell from the sky.
A full-fledged peak Martial King was unable to retaliate in the face of a Martial Monarch. He was simply defeated by a casual wave, how terrifying.
Xiao Chen felt the intense fluctuations in the air. Then he said, “This is the power of space. Martial Kings and Martial Monarchs are simply on completely different levels.
“Everyone step down!”
The First Elder, Jiang Chi, finally rushed over, leading a few Peak masters. However, Xiao Chen did not see Song Que among them. When he thought about it, it made sense. Song Que was now only left with one arm, he no longer had the strength of a peak Martial King.
The hundreds of Martial Kings that gathered earlier all retreated to the side, watching the situation from afar. This fight was at a level they could not interfere in.
Jiang Chi looked at the get-up of the seven. His expression turned sullen and slowly said, “My Heavenly Saber Pavilion does not seem to have any grudges with you all. Why are you causing a scene here?”
The person leading the seven took a few steps forward in the air. He said, “We are from the Eastern Sea Divine Dragon Palace. We are the seven Great Sage Envoys under the Dragon King. My name is Long Tu. We came to the Heavenly Saber Pavilion to borrow something.”
Jiang Chi had already guess what was the item that attracted them here. However, he still said coldly, “Is this the attitude of someone borrowing something?”
“Big Brother, don’t bother speaking nonsense with him. They are just a bunch of trash that are half a step from being Martial Monarchs. There is no need to be so long-winded about it. The Heavenly Saber Pavilion is nothing, how can they compare against our Divine Dragon Palace?”
An evil look flashed in the eyes of the person who made a move earlier.
Lu Tu smiled gently and ignored this person. He looked at Jiang Chi and said, “My Apologies, my Seventh Brother’s temper is very bad and has no tact with words. Sorry, there were too many barriers around the Heavenly Saber Pavilion, we had no choice but to break them.
“As long as you are willing to lend us what we want, I am willing to compensate ten times the losses the Heavenly Saber Pavilion has suffered.”
Jiang Chi said sullenly, “If you intentions are to borrow the Divine Weapon, you may leave now. I will just say this once. If you leave now, I will treat it as nothing has happened. Don’t think that you can do anything you wish in the Heavenly Saber Pavilion with cultivations of Inferior Grade Martial Monarchs.”
When Long Tu heard this, the expression on his face turned cold. He said, “Since the ancient times, the Divine Weapons belong to those who are capable. Our Dragon King has taken an interest in this Divine Weapon. I will also only say this once. Hand over the Divine Weapon obediently. Otherwise, the foundations the Heavenly Saber Pavilion has built up for ten thousand years will be destroyed.”
The seventh Divine Dragon Palace Sage Envoy laughed coldly, “Merely a few piece of trash with half a step into the Martial Monarch realm. Yet you dare to talk about keeping us here? Do you not know how the word ‘death’ is written? Old man, I will start with you first.”
Just as the seventh Sage Envoy wanted to make his move, seven scarlet warships with scarlet banners fluttering in the night breeze suddenly appeared from every direction.
The color of the scarlet warships was as bright as fresh blood, even the darkness of night could not mask it. Instead, the dark sky made it stand out even more.
A person dressed in scarlet Battle Armor stood under each banner. They all draped a huge scarlet cloak over themselves and girdled a Bloodsucker Saber at their waist. They were emitting their killing Qi without holding back.
Seven sets of killing Qi surged. When merged together, they turned into a vast ocean.
The dark clouds above were dyed scarlet already at an unknown time. The horrifying killing Qi felt like it would solid. Occasionally, there would be strange miserable cries coming from the scarlet clouds.
It was the people from the Divine Saber Camp. For the first time since they arrive, the seven from the Divine Dragon Palace had grave expressions.
The figures on the warship jumped off and turned into seven streaks of scarlet light. They all moved to the back of the First Elder, Jiang Chi, at lightning speed.
The commander of the Divine Saber Camp, Ximen Ying, gave a slight nod to Jiang Chi. He said softly, “Divine Saber Camp’s Ximen Ying is late, causing the Heavenly Saber Pavilion to suffer losses.
Jiang Chi said indifferently, “No matter, as long as you are here, it will be fine.”
Long Tu looked at the horrifying baleful auras from the seven. He secretly felt astonished. They are cultivators who proved their Daos by killing.
No wonder their presence can make our hearts palpitate. However, only two of them are Martial Monarchs. The other half are only half a step into the Martial Monarch realm. There is no need to fear them.
Long Tu said sullenly, “The six of you, go get the Divine Weapon. I will hold them back.”
The other intruders trusted in Long Tu’s strength. They did not hesitate and immediately made for the summit of Qingyun Peak.
Jiang Chi’s expression turned grave as he said urgently, “Stop them!”
The many Martial King spectating at the side all rushed forward, sending all sort of high Ranked Martial Techniques at the six. Many resplendent lights were released into the air.
Each of the six punched out, and azure flood dragons appeared. The six flood dragons roared in a berserk manner and crushed all the strong Martial Techniques flying at them.
Furthermore, the might of the flood dragons did not diminish. It moved in an instant and knocked back several dozen Martial Kings. They were hurled away like cannonballs fired from a cannon.
When the Martial Kings who were knocked back flew for about two thousand meters, they crashed into a peak with a loud bang. The peak immediately crumbled.
The six only used a move to easily knock back several dozen Martial Kings. After they withdrew their hands, the flood dragons roared one final time and returned to the six.
“Sou! Sou! Sou!”
The seven scarlet warships quickly flew at the six. A hundred elite Divine Saber Camp disciples jumped off from the bow.
They formed a three-dimensional formation in the air. The instant their Bloodsucker Sabers were drawn, they let out an angry howl and all their killing Qi merged into one.
