Lord Xue Ying - Chapter 1297: Leave None Alive!
The palace hall was slightly restless. As for Imperial Wind High Mountain, he sat on his throne with a cold expression.
He chose to stay behind because he was prepared to fight to the death!
The Imperial Wind Clan had been growing over the years. It had many members in its clan. Some of them were young, and some were slightly weaker. But all those who had been determined to be worthy of training had been sent out to various cities over the past eight million years or so. He even ordered for those leaving clansmen to live in seclusion and not to walk out under the banner of the ‘Imperial Wind Clan’.
“Hmph. My Imperial Wind Clan has so many members. How many of them do your Devil Heart recognize? Even if you could come out with a list of members, how many experts in your Devil Heart Cult specializes in tracking down someone? And to go searching for them one by one, city by city?”
“My Imperial Wind Clan has brought out everything we could to construct the arrays. By relying on the terrain, we plan on fighting back!”
“You want to exterminate my Imperial Wind Clan? Let me see how many experts of yours will die!” Imperial Wind High Mountain was at this moment filled with rising killing intent. He wished to kill as many enemies as he could before he dies!
Bat Mountain Master and God Monarch Jian Yin walked over to the side of Xue Ying. The three of them were Cultivation Tutors for the Imperial Wind Clan.
Brother Flying Snow, Brother Jian Yin.” Bat Mountain Master greeted, “It seems the City Master has already chosen to forgo the outer city by summoning all of us over to the residence of the Imperial Wind Clan! He plans on guarding the inner city. Since the enemy is able to force the Imperial Wind Clan into giving up the outer city, they must be terrifying.”
“What Bat Mountain Master said is logical. Brother Flying Snow, how do you see it?” God Monarch Jian Yin looked at Xue YIng.
“Let’s wait and see.” Xue Ying did not elaborate further.
Both Bat Mountain Master and God Monarch Jian Yin felt suspicious inwardly. They came primarily because they wanted to form a battle line with God Monarch Flying Snow. With the three peak stage God Monarchs standing at the front, they could even deal with an Early Stage God Emperor. But now, it seemed that Xue Ying did not seem to be positive or proactive.
Xue Ying cast his gaze across the main entrance of the palace and into the outer world.
The entire High Mountain City merely occupied an area of several hundred thousand kilometers. And this included the outer city. The residence of the Imperial Wind Clan merely occupied tens of thousands of kilometers. All the core arrays were constructed within the main residence of the Imperial Wind Clan, and this was also the inner city.
Currently, unrest filled the palace hall. Time passed gradually amidst this uneasy atmosphere.
“They are finally here!” Imperial Wind High Mountain abruptly stood. The killing intent emitting from his body could not be concealed at all. It was heaven-shaking. Following that, he immediately charged out of the hall.
“Second Brother, Third Sister, take good care of yourselves!” The Crown Prince Imperial Wind Lei gave his little brother and sister a glance before similarly rushing out of the palace hall. Housekeeper Tong similarly followed after them.
“Sou sou sou…”
One after another, figures flew out. More than half the peak stage God Monarch experts of the Imperial Wind Clan had charged out of the palace hall. They moved into various combat formations with great familiarity.
And other experts like Xue Ying remained calm. They did not rush out impatiently. Instead, they walked out to the entrance of the palace hall and watched as the battle unfolded.
“They are here.”
All of them looked far ahead. There was a huge ship floating.
Beneath the ship, a huge city-protective array appeared covering High Mountain City just like a barrier.
Suddenly, a huge hand extended from that ship. This hand expanded to several kilometers long the moment it came out. With booming sounds, it smashed against the barrier protecting the city. This barrier became slightly distorted before it blasted apart. That huge ship did not seem to have slowed. Instead, it followed along the hole formed into the High Mountain City.
“How could that be so easy?” The group of experts gathered within the palace hall in High Mountain City paled.
“Even though the City Master has given up on the outer city and did not pour his full force to protect it, the city-protective array was actually destroyed with a single palm strike. How frightening is the enemy!”
“An Early Stage God Emperor should not be able to achieve this.”
Thoughts began flashing in the hearts of the experts.
Every single minor realm jump at the God Emperor was hard. 99% of ‘God Emperors’ in the Divine Realm were Early Stage God Emperors. It was simply too difficult for one to break through to the middle stage! And most Middle Stage God Emperors were qualified to be ranked on the God Emperor Ranking List. This list contained the top 1,000 experts across the entire Divine Realm! Thus, it could be seen how rare ‘Middle Stage God Emperors’ were.
The huge ship came. It easily destroyed the city-protection array for the outer city. And now, it entered the city.
Huge number of Divine Realm natives living in the city looked up at what was happening. They were alarmed by what was happening. Some even chose to hide in their houses so that they would not get involved in the battle.
“Hurry up and hide!”
“All of you, hide in the underground meditation rooms.”
The entire city became chaotic.
And that huge ship did not care about the ordinary citizens at all. In a breath of time, it flew over to the residence of the Imperial Wind Clan.
“Imperial Wind High Mountain.” A voice rumbled across the world. It was filled with frightful killing intent. The entire High Mountain City immediately became quiet.
A muscular old man who was wearing black robe walked out of the huge ship. He stood in midair. Behind him were five other God Emperors that followed.
This muscular old man looked over at the residence of the Imperial Wind Clan. He gave a cold sneer: “Imperial Wind High Mountain, your doomsday is here! The entire Imperial Wind Clan will be uprooted by me on this very day!”
“Devil Heart!” Imperial Wind High Mountain stood above his residence. The energy from the arrays constructed in the clan residence was currently pouring into his body, significantly boosting his strength. At this moment, he was covered in many layers of light. It was so much more dazzling than that Devil Heart Cultist Master. Imperial Wind High Mountain furiously roared in response, “You wish to exterminate my Imperial Wind Clan? Hmph hmph, let me see how many of the experts you brought today will go back alive.”
“You regard yourself too highly.” The muscular old man said with a clear voice, “I am Devil Heart. Currently, as long as any expert in the High Mountain City who isn’t part of the Imperial Wind Clan chooses not to be my enemy, I’ll not make it hard for you too. Today, the Imperial Wind Clan has to be exterminated. Don’t be so foolish and join them in their funeral.”
Following that, the muscular old man waved his hand: “Move!”
On the order, the five God Emperors behind him as well as large number of God Monarchs on the battleship flew out. They formed a huge combat formation with practiced ease and began attacking the residence of the Imperial Wind Clan right before them.
The muscular old man, ‘Devil Heart Cultist Master’ also acted alone. He began his siege.
Imperial Wind High Mountain took the initiative to engage Devil Heart Cultist Master. Currently, the entire residence of the Imperial Wind Clan was protected by the arrays. Furthermore, due to the small region the arrays covered and the continual strengthening of the arrays by the Imperial Wind Clan over the past several millions of years, the arrays protecting the Imperial Wind Clan was sufficiently strong.
Imperial Wind High Mountain immediately passed through the clan-protecting arrays and began his sneak attack. After attacking, he immediately went back hiding behind the arrays.
By controlling the core array of the entire setup, he naturally could enter the array as he wished. Before Devil Heart Cultist Master destroy the arrays, he could not enter.
“Hong long long~”
The five God Emperors commandeered 300 God Monarchs in a formation. This formation was much stronger than their commander, ‘Devil Heart Cultist Master’ alone.
Nonetheless, Devil Heart Cultist Master himself could exert a strength that was close to half of what his subordinates could!
“Everyone, prepare to battle.” Imperial Wind Lei swept his gaze across Bat Mountain Master, Xue Ying, God Monarch Jian Yin, and a large batch of experts, “My Imperial Wind Clan has never treated everyone badly. Today is also the day that everyone repay the kindness! I hope that nobody will betray the clan during the most critical moment. Otherwise, the strength from the array will no longer be used to power you up. Instead, it’ll suppress you! The experts of my Imperial Wind Clan have congregated into several combat formations. They are powered up by the arrays too. By then, it’ll be a simple task for us to kill all traitors. This is a critical moment that defines the existence of my Imperial Wind Clan, and we are unable to tolerate any single betrayal.”
Many experts felt a restraining fear covering their hearts.
“Right now, everyone should hear out my arrangement.” Imperial Wind Lei immediately began dispatching the experts.
He grouped those experts that were not part of the Imperial Wind Clan into several combat formations. Each formation would have an expert from the Imperial Wind Clan leading it. This way, even if the other experts from the combat formation decided to change sides, the Imperial Wind Clan expert would be able to prevent the traitors from forming a perfect formation.
“We can only temporarily delay the enemies off.”
“Let us deal with them for now.”
Bat Mountain Master and other experts had ugly expressions. Neither did they dare to resist.
They knew of the God Emperor Ranking List, and how terrifying ‘Devil Heart Cultist Master’ was for him to be listed on it! Did they not see how easily the other party dispatch five God Emperors and 300 God Monarchs? Even by adding up all the experts in High Mountain City, they could merely form over 300 God Monarchs. But some of them were not present today. For instance, the experts from the ‘Heaven’s Will Pavilion’ or the branch team from the ‘Mysterious Fire Army’. Quite a few would not listen to the arrangements by Imperial Wind Clan.
“Hong hong hong…”
Incessant ringing sounds could be heard from the sky.
Imperial Wind High Mountain and other experts from the Imperial Wind Clan were flying through the array membrane and carrying out more sneak attacks.
Even if they did, the Devil Heart Cult still held an overwhelming advantage. They were constantly bombarding the array, causing it to tremble.
“Not good.” Standing by the entrance of the palace hall, both brother and sister, Imperial Wind Jin and Imperial Wind Qing Yin looked at the ground. Many areas on the surface of the clan residence had started cracking. Clearly, the offense of the enemy was too great, causing some arrays to break. One had to know that the light barrier was in reality formed by the stacking of energy from several dozen arrays. Following as some arrays started breaking, the strength of the light barrier would become weaker.
“Little Sister.” Imperial Wind Jin looked at his little sister, “Big Brother is useless for failing to protect you.”
“It’s fine.” Imperial Wind Qing Yin smiled, “Let us watch Father, Big Brother, and the others battle from here.”
“Mn.” Imperial Wind Jin nodded.
They were too weak. Hence, there was no meaning in participating in the battle.
Furthermore, they knew that they would definitely be defeated this time. The two of them were not willing to hide. Instead, they would rather watch from the side as their clansmen battled.
Following that, many more areas in the residence began cracking apart. Quite a few arrays could not hold on and started shattering apart. In the end, the dimmed barrier in the sky finally let out a booming sound, and a huge hole was blasted apart by the five God Emperors.
“Broken. It’s broken apart.” Many experts including Bat Mountain Master started panicking. They did not wish to die with the Imperial Wind Clan.
“They are coming!”Imperial Wind Qing Yin started feeling nervous.
“Little Sister, let us watch. Let us watch Father and the others battle.” Second Brother Imperial Wind Jin watched with gritted teeth.
“Kill them all! Wipe out the entire Imperial Wind Clan and leave none alive!” Devil Heart Cultist Master’s voice resounded mightily across the world.
“Yes!” The five God Emperors and 300 God Monarchs acknowledged his order!
