The Human Emperor - Chapter 2082 - Moment of Life or Death!
Chapter 2082: Moment of Life or Death!
“Bastard! So it was you! The corpse of a soul still dares to act so impudently against this god!”
Firmament Supreme’s eyes chilled in realization, and his index finger thrust out. A powerful bolt of energy infused with the obliterating power of spacetime hurtled toward the Nightmare Beast Core.
If this attack struck, the Nightmare Beast Core would be instantly destroyed.
Wang Chong’s heart trembled. While fighting with Firmament Supreme, he had been hiding the Nightmare Beast’s energy, but while he could deceive a Grotto Heaven expert like Firmament Supreme for a moment, exposure was inevitable.
Wang Chong summoned the Trayastrimsa Heaven to protect the Nightmare Beast Core. Boom! Divine Embryo 1 shuddered and then flew out like a ragdoll.
Just when Firmament Supreme was about to pursue, Divine Embryo 3 flew up and unleashed all of its Stellar Energy.
In an explosion of blue light, ice sealed the surrounding several dozen li, white frost manifesting out of nothing. It appeared as if the entire world had been frozen, all time stopped.
In the middle of the Ice-Sealed World, a layer of ice enveloped Firmament Supreme.
“A good chance! Go!”
With the Ice-Sealed World freezing Firmament Supreme once more, Divine Embryo 2 swiftly summoned the Trayastrimsa Heaven, having it take the form of a golden spear several dozen feet long and throwing it at Firmament Supreme.
But a split-second later, the cold ice cracked and fell apart before the golden spear could even get close. A white and fair fist struck out from the crumbling ice and blasted away Divine Embryos 2 and 3.
“You thought the same move would trip up this god twice?!”
Firmament Supreme shook his body and immediately broke free of the Ice-Sealed World.
The first use of the Ice-Sealed World had managed to seal Firmament Supreme for about a second, but now, it couldn’t even hold him for half a second.
“How could this be!?”
Upon seeing this sight, Divine Embryo 3 went pale.
Firmament Supreme had clearly developed a resistance to the Ice-Sealed World, which was ill news for the group.
Meanwhile, Firmament Supreme did not rest after knocking away the three divine embryos.
“Die for me!”
Firmament Supreme coldly stomped forward, and the air rumbled with thunder. A moment later, a massive psychic storm centered around Firmament Supreme erupted.
Boom! Boom! Boom!
With several explosions, the three divine embryos trembled and were sent flying once more.
Divine Embryos 1 and 3, which had the worst injuries, went ghastly pale, their souls almost shattered by Firmament Supreme’s strike.
A centipede would not fall over even in death. It was true that Firmament Supreme had been heavily injured by the explosion, but he was still far stronger than Wang Chong’s group.
“Even when this god is heavily injured, he can still kill you as easily as turning over his hand!”
He turned his hand over, and that terrifying and unstoppable golden short halberd appeared once more.
With a forceful toss, the golden halberd flew out.
Wang Chong’s mind was shaken as a feeling of intense danger welled up.
He had personally experienced the power of this short halberd before, so he well understood that he was incapable of stopping it.
Boom! In a golden flash of light, Divine Embryo 3 was struck by the halberd. In the short time available to him, Wang Chong only had time to maneuver it to the side, just barely managing to avoid a lethal blow. Still, the halberd blew through the left shoulder, leaving a large, bloody hole.
Not only that, the short halberd contained a special Psychic Energy, and Wang Chong felt a sudden headache—
The soul in the mind of Divine Embryo 3 was half-jolted out of the body, the connection almost breaking.
The same happened to Divine Embryo 2. The golden halberd curved around and pierced through Divine Embryo 2’s body.
With one attack, Firmament Supreme’s golden short halberd had heavily injured two of Wang Chong’s divine embryos.
“Great Destruction Art!”
Seeing that the golden short halberd was continuing on toward Divine Embryo 1, Divine Embryo 1 unleashed the Great Destruction Art.
In a flash of light, a large black hole appeared, causing space and time to collapse.
This attack finally managed to block the golden halberd, but even so, Divine Embryo 1 felt pain at its chest as the golden halberd once more struck its Shanzhong Point.
And this was after Wang Chong had minimized the impact of this golden halberd by as much as he could.
Divine Embryo 1 trembled, vomited blood, and was sent flying once more.
Wang Chong’s expression was ashen. In the blink of an eye, the heavily injured Firmament Supreme had defeated all three of the divine embryos.
When the Grotto Heaven Stellar Energy contained in the golden halberd passed through his body, it almost scattered all of Wang Chong’s Stellar Energy, leaving his body wracked with pain, almost paralyzed.
And things were far from over…
“Hmph! For daring to destroy this god’s teleportation gate, this god will bury you together with the teleportation gate so that you can experience the sensation of a body being ground into powder!”
Firmament Supreme’s face was pale with rage, and his fingers snatched back the golden halberd.
He was already badly injured, and using the Power of Spacetime so frequently was a heavy burden on him.
But Firmament Supreme no longer cared. These three mice had destroyed the teleportation gate he had spent so much time and energy building. More importantly, the energy core was gone as well. This meant that he could not even rebuild the teleportation gate, which would affect the Purification plan.
He could already predict Heaven’s anger.
And even more infuriating was that these three mice had dared to entrap him. In that previous explosion, if he had not managed to find a small spacetime crack at the final moment and use his Power of Spacetime to enter it, he would have been obliterated.
But the explosion had nevertheless left an indelible wound on Firmament Supreme. Not only had he been weakened and his organs injured, his mind and his most precious Grotto Heaven law had been badly damaged by the impact.
For the arrogant Firmament Supreme, this was an unprecedented disgrace.
If he did not kill these three mice in the most painful fashion possible, how could he possibly vent all his rage?
Firmament Supreme turned around and snapped his fingers. A massive, golden Halo of Spacetime appeared around Wang Chong’s three divine embryos. At the same time, a spacetime tunnel opened that led to the shores of the Caspian Sea.
As the crashing of waves filled his ears and the cold and biting wind lashed his face, Wang Chong opened his eyes and found that Firmament Supreme had brought him back to the location of the teleportation gate.
What made him even more uneasy was that giant black hole in the sky, still radiating terrifying energy. In that black hole, Wang Chong could sense that the fabric of spacetime was still collapsing.
It was the teleportation gate, not yet destroyed!
Wang Chong had not expected that the explosion produced by throwing the energy core into the teleportation gate would be so destructive that the energy had yet to dissipate.
His heart thumped as he realized what Firmament Supreme was planning.
He planned to throw the three divine embryos into the still-open spacetime black hole, utilizing the power of the collapsing spacetime to crush their bodies into dust so as to vent his hatred.
“Now, die for this god.”
Firmament Supreme’s emotionless voice resounded through the world.
A Halo of Spacetime with a diameter of a hundred-some feet appeared on the ground and swiftly locked down the surrounding space, rendering Wang Chong incapable of fleeing into the sky or into the ground.
Firmament Supreme’s fingers slightly opened, a tiny Halo of Spacetime appearing between them.
The Halo of Spacetime trembled and rapidly turned, upon which the spacetime fabric of the entire region trembled.
The air was brimming with tension.
The danger in Wang Chong’s heart reached a suffocating level.
Life or death would be decided in a single moment!
Wang Chong knew that once Firmament Supreme made his attack and threw him into the spacetime black hole, he would be doomed.
What do I do?
Countless thoughts flashed through Wang Chong’s mind.
Firmament Supreme was simply too strong, both in physical strength and mental strength, and this wasn’t even considering that golden short halberd. Even if he used all his strength, he would still be no match.
Firmament Supreme’s power was overwhelming!
After what was both like a second and like countless years, bzzz! An idea suddenly occurred to Wang Chong, and his fingers clenched in resolve.
This was it!
“There’s nothing to be done! I can only try this move!”
Wang Chong clenched his teeth, a determined look on his face.
