Above Taiji Palace, with a loud buzzing and cracking, the giant Spacetime Mirror above Li Xuantu and Wang Chong began to break apart.
The threat hanging above their heads instantly disappeared.
But as the Spacetime Mirror shattered, it helped Genesis Supreme block a fatal attack from the Miniature Nine Provinces Domain.
“How could this be!?”
Genesis Supreme paled as the Spacetime Mirror shattered, fear engulfing his heart.
Everything had happened too quickly!
He had never imagined that even the Spacetime Mirror that ‘Heaven’ had granted him would not be able to block an attack from the Miniature Nine Provinces Domain, shattering with a single blow!
Finally, Genesis Supreme began to consider retreating.
Whoosh! His body blinked away as he charged into the distance like a lightning bolt, moving far faster than the Tianfu Divine Lord.
But the moment the Miniature Nine Provinces Domain had activated, it had locked down the area, preventing Genesis Supreme from using his Power of Spacetime to escape.
“Genesis Supreme, you can’t escape!”
Wang Chong’s chilling voice resounded through the world.
Wang Chong had been planning to use the energy the Sage Emperor had left behind to deal with Genesis Supreme, but now that the formation was reactivated, that was no longer necessary.
Genesis Supreme was now a bird in a cage, a fish in a pond. He had nowhere to run.
Wang Chong opened his hand and slapped at the distant Genesis Supreme. A moment later, the Miniature Nine Provinces Domain unleashed its power at Genesis Supreme.
This power was far above the Grotto Heaven realm, and even a peerless expert like Genesis Supreme couldn’t help but pale.
Genesis Supreme’s mind trembled. For the first time, he felt that his life was in danger, that his end was near.
His Power of Spacetime had been completely frozen and rendered unusable, and the terrifying power unleashed by the formation had made him put aside all hopes of resisting.
This was not merely the energy the Three Emperors Formation had accumulated over thousands of years, but also the Stellar Energy Li Taiyi had poured into the formation before his death. These two added together were simply not something he could stand against.
As that majestic light swiftly caught up to him and was on the verge of taking his life, Genesis Supreme cried out.
“Great Skyscraping Grotto Heaven Prophecy!”
The panicked cry exploded through the world like a crack of thunder.
A moment later, Genesis Supreme was struck by the formation’s power, and his entire body exploded.
But in the middle of this explosion, a dark golden light shot out, piercing straight through the Miniature Nine Provinces Domain and into the clouds.
In the blink of an eye, Genesis Supreme’s aura vanished from perception.
This was so sudden that not even Wang Chong had time to stop it. No, it was probably better to say that it was simply impossible to stop!
On the ground, Wang Chong and Li Xuantu stood in a speechless daze.
What a pity, to think I let him escape!
As expected, just like Firmament Supreme, Genesis Supreme has his own special seal! Wang Chong said to himself, his heart filled with regret.
At the shores of the Caspian Sea, Firmament Supreme had used an extremely powerful self-detonation seal. Genesis Supreme clearly had something similar, though unlike Firmament Supreme’s, his seal was used for escaping.
The world fell silent.
Everyone on the ground was stunned by Genesis Supreme’s ‘explosion’.
“Wh-what happened here?”
The imperial prison escapees began to chatter, but Fumeng Lingcha and the stronger prisoners had already turned pale.
Genesis Supreme had been so powerful that the likes of Fumeng Lingcha or Huang Xiaotian would never even dream about resisting him. This was because they understood that Genesis Supreme could crush them like ants if he had wanted to kill them.
But now, Genesis Supreme was dead!
And the one who had killed Genesis Supreme was none other than their greatest fear, Wang Chong.
Fumeng Lingcha’s eyes widened, and while everyone else was still absentminded, he turned his head and began to run out of the palace.
The situation was bad. If he didn’t leave now, he would never be able to leave.
Seeing a large number of Imperial Army soldiers in his way, Fumeng Lingcha thrust out a palm to clear his path.
At almost the same time, Huang Tianzhao and Duan Zhuyan also realized how bad the situation was, and with sharp barks, they followed Fumeng Lingcha.
The three of them pushed their strength to its limits, not daring to turn their heads back as they fled as swiftly as they could.
“Damn it! These scoundrels are running!”
Though they didn’t understand the situation, when the other escapees saw Fumeng Lingcha and company fleeing, they panicked and began to run as well.
Atop the white jade steps of Taiji Palace, Wang Chong simply watched, not showing any signs of personally intercepting them.
He placed his hands behind his back and coldly said, “Bai Hanzhou, Zhao Fengchen, Li Xuanyi, arrest them!”
He stomped his foot against the ground, upon which a stream of Origin Immortal Stellar Energy traveled through the earth and separated into streams that rushed into the bodies of Bai Hanzhou, Zhao Fengchen, and Li Xuanyi.
The Origin Immortal Art possessed formidable healing properties, and it could also neutralize the different Stellar Energies in the bodies of the three. The bodies of the three began to crack and groan as their injuries were rapidly healed.
Not only did Wang Chong’s energy heal their injuries, it also replenished their energy reserves.
The three were stimulated by this change in their bodies, and with waves from their hands, they led the Imperial Army in pursuing Fumeng Lingcha and the other escapees.
As for Taiji Palace, so long as Wang Chong was present, nothing could go wrong!
It wasn’t just the three of them, but the entirety of the Great Tang, that had this level of trust in Wang Chong.
With clanging footsteps, the numerous Imperial Army soldiers set out.
As the turmoil and activity on the outer edge increased, Taiji Palace grew quieter.
A gust of wind ruffled two robes. Wang Chong and Li Xuantu stood across from each other, neither saying a word.
The Tianfu Divine Lord had been slain by the formation while Genesis Supreme had escaped with serious wounds. Only Li Xuantu was left.
And even now, Li Heng was in Li Xuantu’s grasp.
“Many thanks, Your Highness!”
Suddenly, Wang Chong bowed to Li Xuantu.
General Li and the Dragon Guards were flabbergasted by this sight.
“What are you thanking me for?”
Li Xuantu’s eyes flashed, but his face remained aloof and standoffish, refusing all friendly relations.
Wang Chong faintly smiled, not taking to heart Li Xuantu’s cold attitude.
“Many thanks, Your Highness, for lending a hand, and even more thanks for being merciful!”
“What do you mean?”
Li Xuantu’s pupils constricted, and his face turned even colder.
“Heh, when Your Highness came out of the imperial prison, while you injured Bai Hanzhou and the other Grand Marshals, Your Highness did not kill them. With Your Highness’s Grotto Heaven realm cultivation, if you truly wanted to take revenge on the Great Tang and the Sage Emperor, then killing them should have been as easy as lifting a finger!”
Wang Chong chuckled.
He had noticed earlier that while Bai Hanzhou and the others appeared badly wounded, they had not been wounded in critical areas. This was one of the reasons they had been so easy to heal.
If Li Xuantu were really as cruel as he claimed to be, these people would have never survived.
“That’s just because they were lucky.”
Li Xuantu was unmoved, his expression remaining cold.
“Heh, if Your Highness says it is so, then it is so. But if Your Highness truly wanted to take revenge, the inner court would have been engulfed by rivers of blood by now!” Wang Chong said.
Li Xuantu’s eyes flickered for a moment.
Genesis Supreme had struck with incomparable cruelty, killing or maiming his foes.
In his few attacks, thousands of Imperial Army soldiers had died.
In comparison, Li Xuantu was much ‘gentler’.
“Moreover, while Your Highness has constantly been claiming to seek revenge against His Majesty and the previous Emperor, you have yet to do anything to His Majesty. On the contrary, you sought to protect him during the battle with Genesis Supreme. Although Your Highness could say that you did it to stop Genesis Supreme from succeeding, is the truth really that simple?”
Wang Chong faintly smiled at Li Xuantu.
The Miniature Nine Provinces Domain was a formation the Sage Emperor had constructed specifically to deal with the men in black. It was incredibly powerful, so powerful that even peak Grotto Heaven realm experts like Genesis Supreme could not stand against it. But it was useless against ordinary human experts like Li Xuantu.
Without the assistance of the Miniature Nine Provinces Domain, Wang Chong would have a hard time dealing with Li Xuantu alone.
But despite this, Wang Chong didn’t seem very worried.
Li Xuantu silently frowned.
After a long while, Li Xuantu coldly said, “Brat, don’t think your flattery will work on this prince! This prince didn’t promise you anything!”
“Your Highness, the Great Tang is in the midst of a changing of the guard, and there are frequent problems both foreign and domestic. The Great Tang will face even greater dangers in the future, so no matter what, it cannot face any more turmoil. Although His Majesty is young, he shows signs of a wise sovereign. Thus, as the people are uneasy, His Majesty is needed to come forward and calm them.
“Your Highness is also a member of the House of Li. Emperor Gaozong once praised Your Highness as having the talent to reign over the country, so I am sure that Your Highness understands this argument.”
Wang Chong spoke with sincerity and solemnity.
“Thus, no matter what, I hope that Your Highness can place the situation above yourself and release His Majesty!”
A light breeze blew between the two of them.
All was quiet.
General Li and the wounded Dragon Guards stared nervously at the pair.
In a gust of wind, a black Halo of Spacetime appeared several feet in front of Li Xuantu, rapidly expanding. In this Halo of Spacetime, a familiar figure appeared.
Everyone called out in alarm, and even Wang Chong couldn’t help but get a little nervous.
Li Xuantu’s hand opened, and he once more seized Li Heng by the neck.
