The Human Emperor - Chapter 2071 - Firmament Supreme!
Chapter 2071: Firmament Supreme!
There was no need to worry about puny scoundrels, as they could simply be eliminated. But now that they were facing an extremely powerful foe who was skilled in concealment, taking risks would be seeking death.
The Sky Official knew that the Earth Official was not someone so easily slain.
“But the other side is no longer being just arrogant. Must we really sit here and pretend to ignore them?”
The Water Official was still seething with anger and killing intent.
“There’s no rush. Venerable Firmament Supreme has sent word to restrain ourselves and give him one day. In just one day, he can come out and help us eradicate this foe,” the Sky Official said.
He had the highest status of the three officials, and he was in constant contact with Firmament Supreme.
The Water Official’s eyes flashed with killing intent, his hands clenching and unclenching. But in the end, he chose to compromise.
He was the weakest of the three officials, even weaker than the Earth Official. If he left without the Sky Official’s cooperation, he would be sending himself to his death.
At this moment, the two of them suddenly heard a shrill scream from nearby.
This was clearly one of their subordinates.
The two of them paled.
The Water Official’s robe rustled as he got to his feet, his fists clenching.
These scoundrels weren’t just being cocky. They were essentially pushing right up to their faces.
It was outrageous to the extreme!
Before he could leave, a slender and forceful hand pulled him back.
The Sky Official carefully listened, a grave look on his face.
“Be wary of tricks!”
His Psychic Energy flowed out, engulfing his surroundings, but he found no trace of the other party’s energy.
The only energy signals for the surrounding one thousand feet were the unique energy signals of the men in black.
Just when the Water Official was hesitating, a scream came from the distance, but this was a voice that both of them were familiar with.
The Water Official trembled in shock.
Black Fire was a trusted subordinate of the three officials, one of the captains of the three-hundred-some men in black stationed here. Each of the captains was a peak Great General, nearing the Subtle realm.
The three officials guarded the golden palace, leaving many matters to the captains.
The Water Official had not expected the enemy to already be attacking Black Water and the others.
The Water Official broke free of the Sky Official’s grip and shot out through the door.
The Sky Official grimaced and instinctively rushed after him. The Water Official was weaker than the Earth Official, and carelessly going over was essentially suicide.
But the Sky Official quickly understood something and turned his head back.
The three officials had been tasked with one other important mission besides guarding the teleportation gate. This was to guard the massive formation that covered the surrounding seventy to eighty li.
The moment he left the hall, the Sky Official sensed another energy entering it.
And when he turned his head, in the light of the torches in the hall, he saw a black-robed figure appearing in the hall like a ghost.
As if noticing the Sky Official’s gaze, that man turned around and eerily smiled at him.
The Sky Official felt his heart seize up, and he now understood what was going on.
Luring the tiger from the mountain!
The enemy was not one person, and they had killed Black Fire precisely to lure the two of them out of the hall, so that…
They could gain access to the azure crystal that served as the core of the formation!
The Sky Official felt his heart stop when he saw that eerie smile.
There was no time to react. In the hall, Divine Embryo 1 unleashed all of its Stellar Energy and punched at the azure crystal.
The Sky Official’s eyes flew open as he cried out and lunged into the hall, but it was too late.
The moment he rushed out of the hall after the Water Official, the result was decided!
Boom! Bang! The ground for ten-some li around fiercely shuddered.
The massive formation that had locked down this entire region shattered like a mirror now that it had lost its core.
The mighty flows of energy that had been bound by the power of the formation went wild and began to erupt from the ground.
Explosions rang out one after the other, sending chunks of dirt and stone shooting hundreds of feet into the air.
These were far from the only effects of the formation shattering.
Behind the dark golden palace, in the direction of the Caspian Sea, space contorted, and as if a curtain had been pulled away, a completely different scene was revealed.
With this ‘hindrance’ gone, the crashing of the waves suddenly became several dozen times louder, an almost deafening roar resounding through the world.
In the darkness, it was possible to see from ten-some li away that some invisible force was pulling up those mighty waves into the air, where they fiercely roared and smashed into each other like dark clouds in the sky.
It looked as if there was a sea floating in the middle of the sky.
But most striking of all was a strange and shining massive gate, several hundred feet tall, located directly under the waves.
A teleportation gate!
Even Wang Chong couldn’t help but be entranced by this sight.
He now understood that this gate and the waves in the sky had been there this entire time. It was just that the three officials had used the formation to weaken and conceal them precisely so that no one would see this alarming sight.
Warhorses shrieked as the numerous nomadic horsemen who had been riding toward the source of the turmoil stared in shock at that massive gate and giant waves that seemed to originate from the land of giants.
“What’s going on? What is this thing?”
“What terrifying energy! Are the divine emissaries enraged?”
“Shut your mouth! Damn, this place is too dangerous!”
The moment the formation shattered, the warhorses began to run around in panic. The tribal warriors were forced to calm the horses, but they remained fearful of that strange sight off the shores of the Caspian Sea.
“This is the teleportation gate?!”
Wang Chong also sensed a shift, but not because of the massive waves in the air. It was because of that constantly flashing teleportation gate in the darkness, grandiose and enigmatic.
Even though he had long ago heard of the teleportation gates and their close connection to the otherworldly invaders, this was the first time since his reincarnation that he had seen one.
This teleportation gate was much larger than he had imagined. The two standing pillars were covered in mysterious markings and patterns. These were not simple decorations but were infused with the laws of the world.
But what stunned Wang Chong the most was the energy contained in the teleportation gate.
Such powerful energy… Wang Chong inwardly muttered to himself.
He could feel a raging and roaring energy within the teleportation gate, one that struck fear into his heart.
Wang Chong’s Divine Embryo 1 was born from the earth, the product of the accumulation of tens of thousands of years. This had resulted in a large reserve of energy, but this energy reserve was comparable to a plank of wood floating on the ocean of the teleportation gate.
Wang Chong had far more Psychic Energy than most, so he keenly understood the terror of this immense amount of energy. Just looking at it from a distance and sensing the deathly energy leaking out made his soul shiver.
Wang Chong originally believed that he could easily destroy the teleportation gate.
But now that he had a good look, he immediately knew that even if there were no one protecting it, destroying this giant teleportation gate would be no easy task!
The Power of Spacetime!
Wang Chong had a sudden realization.
Others in the darkness could only see this giant gate, but Wang Chong could see overlapping images and intense spacetime ripples around the teleportation gate.
This teleportation gate was not merely established on the shores of the Caspian Sea. It was established in spacetime, in a mysterious intermediary dimension between the human world and the depths of spacetime.
The waters of the Caspian Sea were being stirred and tossed into the air by the Power of Spacetime, creating that restless sea in the air!
As countless thoughts flew through his mind, Wang Chong understood that he would need to change his plans.
At this moment, Wang Chong sensed a terrifying energy suddenly appearing beneath the teleportation gate like some long-slumbering beast awakening. In just a few moments, its energy had soared to a frightening level.
Wang Chong’s heart began to beat faster and faster as intense waves of danger emanated from the Caspian Sea.
Although he had never seen him before, Wang Chong immediately knew who was coming.
This man shared the same fundamental energy as Genesis Supreme.
