Lord Shang’s eyes flickered with a demonic light.
“I want to meet him.”
Li Qing hurriedly said,
“Lord Shang, you can’t. If you’re in danger, what should we do? Your safety is the key to the revival of the many Sacred Sovereign from the immemorial era!”
“It’s fine. I won’t go over directly. I’ll just use my consciousness to scan and understand that brat’s strength. You must protect me.”
Li Qing only heaved a sigh of relief when she heard that Lord Shang was not going over personally. She immediately began to protect Lord Shang.
Lord Shang immediately sat cross-legged and closed his eyes. He released a stream of will that mixed with the sacred art that he cultivated and looked forward.
Although it was only a stream of will and could not fully display all of his cultivation, it was more or less able to display cultivation that was close to the Sacred Sovereign with three apertures.
Just using it to probe Ye Xiao should be enough.
At the same time, in the Xuan Yuan immortal sect, several figures were discussed outside the defensive barrier.
“This Ye Xiao is simply too excessive. If he wants to kill, then just be direct. be more straightforward and kill us. What’s the result? But he’s doing well. He destroyed all of our sacred bodies and used them to help him cultivate. Forget it, he even refined our primordial souls into puppets and made them his subordinates.
“He was completely unreasonable.
“This is too insulting.”
“That’s right. This child is relying on his cultivation to be stronger than us to treat us like humans. He completely doesn’t give us any dignity as Sacred Sovereigns. In the future, if we have the chance to turn things around, we will definitely not forgive him.”
“Don’t worry. It won’t be long before there are stronger companions after us to deal with him. At that time, even if he doesn’t want to die, it will be impossible.”
Just as everyone was filled with righteous indignation, suddenly, with a twist of the air, a ray of light suddenly appeared in front of everyone.
Sensing that aura, everyone’s pupils constricted. Very soon, Sacred Sovereign Ziyue’s delicate body trembled, and her eyes were somewhat moist.
Although it was a puppet, Ye Xiao’s method was so strong that it made people’s hair stand on end. A puppet could also possess all the functions of a real human body.
Sacred Sovereign Yun Bing had already recognized the other party’s identity and could not help but shout excitedly,
“It’s that man! It’s that man!”
Some of the Sacred Sovereigns in Undesirable Sea could not help but be confused. They still did not know what had happened and who that person who had just rushed over was.
Gu Tie revealed a proud expression and explained,
“He is an unparalleled genius in our immemorial era.”
Hearing that, everyone’s pupils constricted and their hearts could not help but beat faster.
From immemorial times until then, all the Sacred Sovereigns were geniuses among geniuses!
Every Sacred Sovereign had supreme talent and the hardships they faced in their lives were top-notch.
Yet at that point, as an archaic Sacred Sovereign, Gu Tie actually called him an unparalleled genius.
One could imagine how monstrous he must be to be able to do so.
When Gu Tie saw everyone’s shocked appearance, he immediately felt a sense of self-satisfaction. He then opened his mouth to explain again,
“His name is Shang. In Our immemorial era, he was a legendary existence.
“When he was just born, his strength was only at the god realm. However, in a short span of 1,500 years, he advanced from the god realm to the Sacred Sovereign realm.
“In the end, he successfully opened the 12 apertures of the Sacred Sovereign. He was only one step away from advancing to the legendary Celestial Sovereign realm!
“Not only that, few people of the same level were his opponents.
In the 200 years since he became a Sacred Sovereign, more than 80 Sacred Sovereigns had died at his hands.
In the immemorial era, there were many Sacred Sovereigns, but it was rare to kill so many by himself.
That was where he was powerful.
His Heaven-chasing sacred art could be ranked in the top ten among all the sacred arts.
He… Was a legend, and not just any ordinary legend. It was a legend that could shock the entire world!
There seemed to be nothing that could not be accomplished in front of him.
“Since he has come, we can basically conclude that he has been rescued.”
Hearing Sacred Sovereign Gu Tie’s explanation, everyone could not help but suck in a breath of cold air.
The area of the Undesirable Sea was vast. Who knew how many high-level cultivators had been born there, and there was no lack of well-known figures among Sacred Sovereigns?
Even so, there was no way to easily find someone who could be compared to the archaic Sacred Sovereign Shang.
As expected, the cultivation civilization of the immemorial era was many times stronger than then.
However, they soon became happy.
That was because as long as the other party could successfully kill Ye Xiao, they would have the same chance to escape from that d*mned place.
Otherwise, they would have to stay here forever and become slaves.
Soon, the golden light on the other party’s body slowly disappeared, and a tall and straight figure appeared.
Other than the people from Undesirable Sea and the previous Sacred Sovereigns from the Xuan Yuan immortal sect, everyone else cupped their hands and bowed.
In the next second, Sacred Sovereign Ziyue had already pounced over and rushed into his embrace.
The other party gently stroked her back with some pity and whispered in her ear to comfort her,
“Little Yue, I’ve made you suffer. I should have come over earlier.”
Sacred Sovereign Ziyue shook her head.
“It’s alright. I understand that you have your own difficulties.”
Sacred Sovereign Shang nodded. Then, he extended his hand and grabbed Sacred Sovereign Ziyue’s tender wrist. At the same time, he injected his own energy into it to explore.
That energy surged into Sacred Sovereign Ziyue’s body and quickly roamed around her body to check for abnormalities.
Very soon, he discovered the mark left behind by Ye Xiao.
It was specially left behind by Ye Xiao when he was refining the puppet to control it.
He directly used his own strength in an attempt to get rid of that imprint.
However, at that moment, a sword ray flashed past and directly pierced through his will body.
After his expression revealed a slight shock, he immediately laughed softly and disappeared into the starry sky.
It was the one who made a move was his lover, Sacred Sovereign Ziyue!
All the puppets that had been refined by Ye Xiao all listened to his orders.
Although they had retained the most primitive memories and thoughts, they had to respect Ye Xiao for the most important things.
They had to do whatever Ye Xiao asked them to do.
Even if they were not asked to do anything, the imprint left in their bodies would still force them to do something.
As an example, if someone wanted to harm the Xuan Yuan immortal sect, they would definitely stand out and help resist without hesitation.
As for Sacred Sovereign Shang’s will, it wanted to erase Ye Xiao’s mark and release Sacred Sovereign Ziyue. Naturally, it would also send out the mark’s rebound.
Before he had the time to make a move, after Sacred Sovereign Ziyue was set off, she was 100% percent completely controlled by Ye Xiao’s mind.
The result was obvious. She had unknowingly pierced through Sacred Sovereign Shang’s will body with a sword.
Sacred Sovereign Ziyue could not help but shout out, but there was nothing she could do. The other party’s will body had already been completely damaged by her and disappeared without a trace. Even if she shouted again, there was nothing she could do.
That also made those Sacred Sovereigns who had just gotten excited lose their interest in the blink of an eye.
Initially, they thought that an extremely powerful fellow would come to rescue them and then conveniently destroy Ye Xiao.
In the end, they did not expect that before Ye Xiao had even made a move, the other party had already fallen. Furthermore, he had been stabbed to death by the woman he liked the most. It was simply a mockery.
“Well! I thought that it was some powerful and ruthless character. In the end, it turned out to be such trash.”
The faces of the archaic Sacred Sovereigns turned cold.
“Pay attention to the tone of your words. Don’t go too far. That’s just Sacred Sovereign Shang’s soul body. It’s understandable that his strength isn’t sufficient.
“Moreover, he was ambushed by Sacred Sovereign Ziyue, so he didn’t take precautions in time.”
“That’s right. When his main body comes over, it’ll be Ye Xiao’s end.”
At that point, the Sacred Sovereigns of the Undesirable Sea clearly did not have much interest and returned to their boredom.
The archaic Sacred Sovereigns were also helpless and could only run over to comfort Sacred Sovereign Ziyue. It was not her fault. It was just that she had become Ye Xiao’s puppet, so there was nothing they could do.
In the Xuan Yuan immortal sect, Ye Xiao, who was in closed-door cultivation, suddenly opened his eyes. Two cold rays of light shot out from his eyes.
“Shang? interesting. If I’m not wrong, he should be the previous owner of the sky-piercing sacred bow.
“However, from the looks of it, he should not have fully recovered by now.”
After making a few indifferent comments, he once again sank into meditation and continued to cultivate.
The other party’s strength was not enough to attract his attention. He could not be bothered to waste his time on it.
On the other side, in the starry sky, Sacred Sovereign Shang, who was protected by Sacred Sovereign Li Qing, suddenly opened his eyes.
Just as he opened his eyes, a powerful burst of power directly shattered several celestial bodies in front of him.
Li Qing could not help but be shocked and hurriedly asked,
“Why is Lord Shang so angry?”
Sacred Sovereign Shang clenched his fists. After a long time, he sighed and gradually returned to a calm and rational state.
“This kid has two tricks. He is quite difficult to deal with. I just woke up now. In the past 100,000 years, I don’t know how much of my cultivation has been consumed. If I recklessly fight with him, I’m afraid I won’t be able to withstand it.
“Looks like I still have to raise my strength first and restore my cultivation to its peak state before anything else.”
Li Qing’s heart could not help but be shocked. Although she had already guessed that Ye Xiao was very strong, she did not expect that the other party would actually be evaluated in such a manner by Lord Shang.
One had to know, what kind of person Lord Shang was.
That was an existence that was able to command the entire world in the immemorial era.
The lord of the immemorial era was already slightly stronger than the lord of the current era. Furthermore, Lord Shang had opened the 12 apertures of the Sacred Sovereign in the immemorial era and had half a foot on the legendary threshold.
However, she did not expect that such a heaven-defying existence would actually praise Ye Xiao.
That was sufficient to show that Ye Xiao’s strength was even more terrifying than she had imagined.
However, even if it was terrifying, she still had to do the proper thing. She immediately opened her mouth and said,
“Lord Shang, in the Sacred Lock ruins, there are treasures and resources left behind by many cultivators from our immemorial era. They are sufficient to allow you to successfully recover your strength. Why don’t we go and take a look at the Saint Lock ruins?”
Lord Shang nodded.
“This is a good idea. Let’s go and take a look.”
The two quickly disappeared from where they were. When they reappeared, they had already arrived at the southern part of the immortal world, where the territory of the Undesirable Sea was.
Following that, Sacred Sovereign Shang immediately used his secret technique. In the blink of an eye, the seawater was separated, revealing an ancient and simple palace.
“Stand guard outside. Don’t let anyone enter and disturb my cultivation.”
Li Qing obediently stood guard outside the door while he directly entered.
After he entered, the inside of the palace seemed to have been lit up and many things that had never been seen before appeared.
Inside, every item was filled with a dense sacred aura. Even if it was not a sacred weapon, it was still a sacred pill!
Any one of those items would make a Sacred Sovereign’s eyes turn red.
However, Sacred Sovereign Shang did not care about those items. Instead, he went deeper into the palace and disappeared without a trace.
At the same time, many factions at the southern end of the Undesirable Sea started to look over after sensing this aura.
“Such powerful energy, and it’s so pure. It’s a rare treasure.”
“What’s going on? is some secret treasure about to be created?”
In an instant, countless people began to fly over.
Soon, when they arrived and saw Li Qing, they could not help but tremble.
Although Li Qing looked like an old woman, the aura that she emitted pressured everyone’s chest, making it difficult for them to breathe.
“What terrifying strength! Who Is this fellow?”
“I’m afraid she’s a Sacred Sovereign! Otherwise, she wouldn’t have such strength.”
“But, if she’s a Sacred Sovereign, how come people have never heard of her?”
“The other party is a Sacred Sovereign. Do you think you can meet her just because you want to? Putting that aside, the aura that she exuded was slightly stronger than an ordinary Sacred Sovereign of the same level.
“If I’m not wrong, she’s most likely a Sacred Sovereign-level cultivator from the immemorial era.
“And it’s not just that.
“Do you see the palace below?
“There are obviously many treasures in that palace, but why didn’t she go down to pick them up? She’s not a fool. She can’t possibly think that she can stop us and wait until she defeats us before she goes to seize those resources, right?
“Therefore, there’s a very likely existence in that palace that’s even more powerful than her, so she has no choice but to defend outside.”
Hearing that, many people could not help but suck in a breath of cold air. Goosebumps rose all over their skin.
An archaic Sacred Sovereign was already extremely terrifying, but in the end, there was actually an existence that was even more powerful than her.
Does that still let a person live?
