Chapter 440: Wrath
Translator: EndlessFantasy Translation Editor: EndlessFantasy Translation
Huang Shiliu wanted a numinous treasure.
Lu Ping felt a headache coming on. He no longer had any acquired numinous treasure on hand.
Although this thing could not be compared to an innate numinous treasure. It could even be said to be a piece of trash.
But that also meant that it was within the scope of the Diamond Immortals.
For cultivators with low cultivation bases, even acquired numinous treasure were already extremely rare.
Lu Ping and Huang Xiaoqi had only saved up this much after so many years.
This time, Lu Ping took it back and gave it to his disciples.
Now, there was really nothing left for Huang Shiliu.
“Shiliu, ah, look, I don’t have one now. How about this, we owe you one and will give it to you later?” Lu Ping said with a smile.
Huang Shiliu was furious. She pointed at Lu Ping and said, “You hired child laborers, and you still owe me wages. Do you have a conscience?”
A little girl who had worked for him for more than a hundred years pointed at him like this.
Lu Ping really felt his conscience ache!
Unfortunately, he really didn’t have any acquired numinous treasure.
At this moment, Lu Ping’s disciples couldn’t stand it anymore.
Lu Zi said, “Master, why don’t you give my numinous treasure to Shiliu!”
When Lu Ping heard this, he was also moved. At the moment, it was more important to appease Huang Shiliu first.
However, Huang Shiliu didn’t want it. She said angrily, “I don’t want Lu Zi and the others’ to give theirs up. It’s like I’ve stolen their numinous treasure. I want you to get me another one!”
“Okay, okay, okay! Give me some time. I’ll get you an acquired numinous treasure!”
Lu Ping had a headache from Huang Shiliu.
But now he really didn’t have any.
Huang Shiliu looked at Lu Ping angrily. After a moment, she gritted her teeth and said, “Then I’ll give you some time. Come back to me next time!”
The little girl was just making things difficult for Lu Ping to vent the resentment in her heart.
Seeing that she was no longer pestering him, Lu Ping hurriedly smiled and said, “Okay!”
The group of disciples also smiled.
Within the Seven Phoenixes sect, everyone usually got along.
However, in front of the other disciples, they rarely displayed such a side.
Lu Ping left the Seven Phoenixes sect, and the disciples began their own journey.
Returning to the main universe, Lu Ping met with Huang Xiaoqi, who was still cultivating. This process had already lasted for a very long time.
Lu Ping didn’t know when she would end.
As he was thinking, he saw Huang Xiaoqi open her eyes.
“You’ve reached the quasi-saint stage?”
Lu Ping asked curiously.
Huang Xiaoqi nodded.
The two had gained a lot during this period of time, and they had even gained some reputation.
Huang Xiaoqi smiled and said, “Now that I’ve entered the quasi-saint stage, I can finally obtain the Primal Purple Qi, and I can also find some quasi-saints to fight with.”
In fact, although the two of them had the ability to kill some weak quasi-saints, they were still cautious.
However, after so many years, they had rarely made a move against quasi-saints.
Although they had tried a few times, their opponents had all escaped.
They were always so close.
This time, Huang Xiaoqi’s cultivation had broken through, so her control over the Nine Dragons Pendant was stronger and her combat power was stronger. Naturally, she also set her eyes on these quasi-saints.
After all, everyone wanted the chance to become a saint.
Even Huang Xiaoqi was no exception.
At this point, Huang Xiaoqi looked at Lu Ping and said with a smile, “But before that, it’s better to kill more Diamond Immortals and raise your cultivation base to quasi-saint as soon as possible. That way, it’ll be easier for the two of us to work together.”
Lu Ping shook his head slightly and said, “There’s no need. The current me might have the ability to fight quasi-saints.”
As he spoke, Lu Ping took out the Chaos Bell!
Huang Xiaoqi’s eyes immediately lit up!
“This is a new magic treasure given by the system? This power is extraordinary!”
Lu Ping did not hide anything and said with a smile, “That’s right. With this innate numinous treasure, the Chaos Bell, as long as it isn’t a top-tier quasi-saint with a saint’s treasure, with your Nine Dragons Pendant, we have a chance of killing them!”
As soon as he finished speaking, Huang Xiaoqi warned, “However, if you don’t have full confidence in this thing, try not to make a move so that others won’t covet it.”
“That’s right, I think so too.”
It had to be said that the two of them had a tacit understanding. They thought of many things the same way.
In the Heavenly Court, the Jade Emperor frowned.
The current battle situation was not optimistic for him.
The two sides were at a stalemate, with some immortals dying from time to time.
This was something the Heavenly Court had never experienced before.
However, during the great battle, there were also some new immortals rising up.
The Jade Emperor had many problems to consider.
In the beginning, he actually wanted to participate.
However, when he discovered that these quasi-saints all had magic treasures bestowed by saints, he dismissed this idea.
Although the Jade Emperor was the ruler of the three realms, he really did not have any decent magic treasures on hand.
The reason was very simple. Hong Jun did not give them to him.
There were some things that did not need to be said clearly. The Jade Emperor was not stupid.
Hong Jun did not give them to him before, perhaps because he did not need them.
However, after the great calamity, Hong Jun did not express anything. Clearly, this represented Hong Jun’s attitude.
Either he was selfless and did not want to get involved, or he only wanted him to be the ruler of the three realms and not a saint.
Regardless, Hong Jun did not intend to help him. The Jade Emperor knew this.
After comprehensive consideration, he gave up on the idea of becoming a saint. After all, from the looks of it, he did not have the capital to do so.
However, it was fine if he did not want the saint position. The Heavenly Court could not be defeated.
He absolutely did not want to lose his current position.
However, they had been fighting for more than a hundred years, and neither side could do anything to the other.
Obviously, this was a battle that would last for a long time.
“Sigh, looking at it now, this is not considered a calamity.” The Jade Emperor sighed to the Queen Mother. “Now is the real end. After this war, I’m afraid that many quasi-saints and Immortal stage cultivators in the world will die!”
That’s right. From the looks of it now, this calamity was a joke compared to the previous great calamities. Regardless of the scale and consequences, they were incomparable.
The Queen Mother also sighed. “I’ve also read the battle report. There are movements everywhere. Fortunately, no experts have died in battle during this period of time. However, from the looks of it, the number of planets occupied by the Western Church is increasing. Their luck is also getting stronger. It is not a good thing.”
“Those fellows are all thinking about how to ambush and kill the other party’s quasi-saints. Many of them are not focused on protecting the planets at all. Aren’t they being taken advantage of?” The Jade Emperor was a little angry.
He wasn’t saying that they were fools. He was aware of the actions of his subordinates.
Looking at their actions and knowing their intentions, how could he not know what these people were thinking?
But he had no choice.
The current situation meant that his control over his subordinates was at an unprecedentedly weak level.
