The Human Emperor - Chapter 2245 - A Sword That Alarms the Heavens!
Chapter 2245: A Sword That Alarms the Heavens!
All the land within several thousand li trembled, and even the steel fortress shuddered as if it was resonating with that incredible beam of golden Sword Qi.
“This is… His Majesty’s Sword Qi!”
Within the steel fortress, Wang Zhongsi was leading the army to the north. When he saw that sword in the sky, he shivered and pulled on the reins of his horse.
He had served the Sage Emperor for a lifetime, and he was far too familiar with this energy.
Wang Zhongsi became extremely agitated.
“Li Taiyi! This is impossible—”
Genesis Supreme’s piercing wail of panic penetrated through the darkness.
The Son of Heaven’s Sword!
This was Li Taiyi’s most powerful attack.
Once this sword was unleashed, no one except Heaven could stand against it. This was not something that a Grotto Heaven realm expert could resist.
Even Genesis Supreme was insignificant before this sword.
Genesis Supreme was shaking in fear.
But Genesis Supreme soon noticed something different.
“No! This isn’t the Son of Heaven’s Sword!”
When Li Taiyi used this attack, the entirety of the Central Plains would respond, but Wang Chong’s sword was far less grandiose. At most, it had half the strength of the Son of Heaven’s Sword used by Li Taiyi. Moreover, while it outwardly appeared similar, deep down, it was far from as pure.
In this Sword Qi, Genesis Supreme could sense some of Wang Chong’s energy.
“Genesis Supreme, accept your fate! This is your destiny!”
Wang Chong’s callous voice resounded through the world.
Genesis Supreme was right. The Sage Emperor had not left the Son of Heaven’s Sword in Wang Chong’s body.
The Sage Emperor had been on his deathbed, and the energy he had left behind had only been meant to help Wang Chong escape from some disaster.
Probably not even the Sage Emperor had imagined that Wang Chong would use it to kill Genesis Supreme.
Not only that, through this energy, his own recollections of that sword intent from the Son of Heaven’s Sword, and his Grotto Heaven strength, Wang Chong was able to produce his own version of the Son of Heaven’s Sword, strengthening the energy the Sage Emperor had left behind.
While this sword could not compare to the Sage Emperor’s and was still not pure, it was more than enough to deal with Genesis Supreme.
With a heaven-shaking boom, the void was sliced open. At that moment, all of the northeast went still.
Countless people looked up from the ground at that brilliant sword that had cleaved through space.
After what seemed like both a second and countless epochs, Wang Chong appeared in the darkness in a flash of light.
Wang Chong let out a long sigh of relief. He had made many preparations for this day and waited a long while, and now, he had finally defeated Genesis Supreme.
But at this moment, Wang Chong raised an eyebrow and turned to a nearby point in space. And as if in response…
A soft cough rang out, and Wang Chong saw a tattered figure stumble out of the void.
Wang Chong’s eyes instantly chilled.
Genesis Supreme had taken his full-strength blow and survived!
Genesis Supreme’s divine armor had been so thoroughly destroyed that he didn’t even know where the remains were, and that Grotto Heaven realm body was also covered in blood and wounds.
His aura was in disarray and completely lacking in power.
But through his Grotto Heaven realm strength and golden armor, Genesis Supreme had managed to survive.
“Brat, do you think you’ve won?”
Genesis Supreme stared at Wang Chong, his eyes overflowing with hatred.
“I have as many of these bodies as I want, and the same is true for this divine armor. Our battle is only just beginning. I lost this time, but next time, you won’t get such a good chance!”
Though he had been heavily injured by Wang Chong, even his Grotto Heaven Core shattered, Genesis Supreme did not panic.
He had survived the capital, and he could survive here. At most, he just needed to switch out a body.
Wang Chong was looking down on him too much, and he was looking down on the Celestial God Organization.
“Hmph, is that so?”
Wang Chong sneered, not even attempting to chase down Genesis Supreme or stop him from running.
“Are you referring to this?”
Wang Chong turned over his palm, revealing a metallic black talisman.
Upon seeing that familiar black talisman, Genesis Supreme felt like he had been punched in the head, his entire body trembling and his pupils constricting.
“Impossible! How did you get it?!”
At that moment, panic finally appeared in Genesis Supreme’s eyes, his face draining of blood and his breathing stopping.
Genesis Supreme had been so composed and unworried about anything Wang Chong might do precisely because of this ‘Spacetime Talisman’.
With the Spacetime Talisman, even if his physical body were destroyed, he could leave this place with a speed that Wang Chong could never imagine and return to their home base.
In another few months, he could return to Wang Chong with an undamaged body.
He had long ago refined this talisman, linking it with his soul. How had Wang Chong gotten his hands on it?
“Ha, it was my work.”
The Nightmare Beast’s voice came from within Genesis Supreme’s body.
“Master long ago predicted this move, so the first thing he ordered me to do upon entering your body was to disrupt your senses and seize this talisman. Otherwise, do you really think you would have been able to so easily control your body?”
A moment later, an enormous energy erupted from Genesis Supreme’s lower left abdomen, beginning to vie with Genesis Supreme for control of the body.
Genesis Supreme’s body twitched and trembled as the Nightmare Beast attacked, and he let out a howl of pain.
Before this, he had been completely confident in his ability to suppress the Nightmare Beast, but Wang Chong’s attack had not only damaged his flesh. His Psychic Energy had been dealt a heavy blow and left greatly weakened.
When a soul was occupying a body, the flaws of the body would become the flaws of the soul, and all the injuries were transferred over.
“Beast, you dare!” Genesis Supreme raged.
As a mighty god that controlled all things in the world, a hallowed existence, he had had his physical body seized by a beast. For Genesis Supreme, this was a humiliation beyond compare.
“Genesis Supreme, do you still not get it? There is no next time. As I said, there is no escaping this battle for you,” Wang Chong indifferently said, slowly stepping forward.
Boundless Psychic Energy erupted from him, once more creating the Stellar Universe and slamming into Genesis Supreme’s mind.
“Aaaagh!” Under the combined assault from Wang Chong and the Nightmare Beast, Genesis Supreme could resist no more.
Genesis Supreme’s face twisted, and then a new face emerged. A moment later, a black wisp pulsing with soul energy emerged from Genesis Supreme’s body.
Under the incessant attacks of the Nightmare Beast, Genesis Supreme had finally lost control over the body and been forced out.
The moment he was forced out of the body, Genesis Supreme’s soul turned into that black wisp and fled in panic.
But a moment later, a ringed spacetime wall emerged, blocking Genesis Supreme’s path, followed by a second, a third…
“Genesis Supreme, even now, you really think you can escape?” Wang Chong coldly said.
As the two had been speaking, Wang Chong had been laying down Halos of Spacetime. If one looked down from the sky, one could see that numerous dark golden Halos of Spacetime had turned this area into a prison.
With these dark golden Halos of Spacetime serving as a backdrop, Wang Chong truly appeared like a god.
With his plans in place, Genesis Supreme had no hopes of escaping!
Seeing that there was no escape, Genesis Supreme felt a deep despair, but he felt more hatred and shock.
“Damn ant, you’ve destroyed my physical body twice! Since I can’t escape, don’t think about getting away! Die with me!”
Genesis Supreme’s venomous voice resounded through the world. Boom! The black wisp split open, and in the depths of Genesis Supreme’s soul, a light burst out.
Wang Chong glanced over and grimaced.
When Genesis Supreme’s soul fled after being squeezed out of the body, it had taken the halo divine tool with it.
He had seemingly activated some sort of seal in the divine tool. At this time, the halo that had been dim and one-fifth its original size erupted with light and expanded back to its original size. Deep within the halo, there was a red flash.
Wang Chong’s heart trembled, and he instinctively backed away. He had not expected Genesis Supreme to be hiding a card like this. Given his soul’s power, if he detonated it along with the divine tool, he could create an extremely lethal force.
“Brat, die with me!” Genesis Supreme’s crazed voice resounded through the heavens. The moment he revealed the halo, he wrapped his soul around it and lunged at Wang Chong.
“Ant! What does it matter how strong you are?!
“This is the fate of those who try to slay gods!
“This is the curse of a god!”
At this moment, Genesis Supreme was both insane and elated.
As Genesis Supreme’s madness reached its peak, a voice spoke up. “Master, leave it to me!”
Genesis Supreme’s soul shivered, but before he could react, two hands reached out of the void, one grabbing Genesis Supreme’s soul and the other the halo.
Sensing the power in those two hands, Genesis Supreme’s soul almost froze.
