Chapter 2263: Zhangchou Jianqiong’s Worries!
Edited by: Michyrr
“Heh, if I told everyone that the cold wave originated from the extreme north and that it was being created and controlled by someone, what would everyone think? All of you are powerhouses, talented men, or sovereigns of the continent. You can’t have never once wondered what the truth was, right?”
Wang Chong grinned.
After a few moments of thought, Yeon Gaesomun said, “Your Highness, we have only ever had speculations on this matter, but never any firm evidence. And how can this cold wave be man-made? This vast range and power is simply too frightening!”
Only gods or devils would be capable of creating this sort of cold wave that could freeze the entire world.
“Heh, we can put the matter of whether it’s man-made to the side for now, but didn’t everyone see Genesis Supreme? After spending so long with those people, I’m sure that all of you must have realized something, yes?”
Wang Chong faintly smiled.
The sovereigns and generals in the hall pensively lowered their heads.
They weren’t fools. An Lushan had been far too close to Genesis Supreme and that mysterious faction.
Moreover, once the cold wave erupted, Genesis Supreme had laid down a giant formation in Youzhou to resist the cold wave. This had been a little too much of a coincidence.
It was impossible to say that they had never wondered if something else was going on.
But these were mere speculations without any evidence. Moreover, in that situation, none of the countries had been capable of defying Genesis Supreme.
“This matter was far too important, and even if we had our doubts, we couldn’t treat them as truth. Does the King of Foreign Lands have some sort of evidence?” In the end, the beautiful Xi Queen stepped forward and asked the question on everyone’s mind.
The fate of all the other countries was closely linked to this matter. If the strength of the other countries was to be harnessed for this operation, they would need some believable evidence.
If Wang Chong had evidence to prove their speculations, it would be a huge shock to them.
There would be no doubt that the alliance had been used.
“Hehe, of course I have evidence.”
Wang Chong smiled as if expecting this question.
“Come! Bring him inside!”
Under the dubious gazes of the sovereigns and generals, several Tang generals escorted a man inside.
When a general tore off the hood over the man’s face, everyone in the hall gasped.
The Divine Works Elder!
The one Wang Chong had brought in was none other than the Divine Works Elder who had played a pivotal role in the alliance army.
Besides Genesis Supreme, the Divine Works Elder was the member of the Celestial God Organization that they were most familiar with.
With Genesis Supreme slain and An Lushan killed, the alliance army scattered. The Divine Works Elder and the men in black had also taken to the hills, vanishing without a trace.
They had all believed that he had escaped back to the Celestial God Organization, but Wang Chong had somehow managed to capture him.
Everyone instantly turned their eyes to the Divine Works Elder.
The Divine Works Elder’s eyes were unfocused at first, but after scanning the crowd, he swiftly locked onto Wang Chong, his eyes erupting with hatred.
“So it was you!”
Wang Chong looked at the Divine Works Elder and indifferently said, “Divine Works Elder, if you talk about the Celestial God Organization’s plan, I might be able to make things easier for you.”
“Hmph! Wang Chong, you killed Venerable Genesis Supreme, killed An Lushan, and ruined Heaven’s Purification plan. After offending Heaven, how much longer do you think you can keep being smug?”
The Divine Works Elder coldly sneered, looking at Wang Chong as if he was a walking corpse.
“Do you really think you’ve won this battle? The cold wave from that world is endless, and this world will grow colder and colder, the blizzard stronger and stronger. When the time comes, all humans on this world will be rendered extinct!
“Haha, and all of you are here, still thinking you’ve won!”
Ozmish Khagan, Yeon Gaesomun, the Khitan King, and the Xi Queen all paled at these words.
The Divine Works Elder had not realized anything, but his words had already proved Wang Chong’s speculations.
This cold wave that had engulfed the entire human world was actually the work of the Celestial God Organization!
“Bastard, so this really was all your lot’s doing! What are you trying to do?”
Ozmish Khagan couldn’t hold back, walking up with a grim expression and hoisting the elder by the neck.
His Eastern Turkic Khaganate, the Xi, the Khitans, and the Goguryeon Empire had sacrificed so many people, but in the end, they had been used.
Ozmish Khagan was overcome with fury.
The Divine Works Elder laughed. Even though Ozmish Khagan had his hands around his neck and could kill him at any moment, he was unafraid.
“You, all you ants, are still so ignorant, even with death hanging over your heads! Still daring to mix together with these sinners!
“If this operation had succeeded, the Purification plan would have killed only half of you at most, but now, you have betrayed Heaven, betrayed us! There will be no place for you in the new world!
“All of you will die! Didn’t you like the steppe? Once you’re dead, your bodies will fertilize the steppes of the new world.
“What Eastern Turks? What Goguryeo? Nothing but lowly ants! In the future, when new civilizations emerge, you will be like air, as if you have never existed.
“All traces of you will be totally wiped away. This is what happens to those who betray the gods, and those who oppose them!”
The Divine Works Elder heartily laughed as he laid down a curse with his venomous words.
Everyone in the hall paled.
“Have you said enough?” Wang Chong suddenly said, his expression cold. With a slight wave of his hand, he calmed the agitated crowd.
“For now, let us put aside the discussion over whether or not Heaven can destroy the human world. However, I could kill Genesis Supreme, so I can naturally kill Heaven. As for you, for assisting evil and persisting in your ways, I already know what your end will be.”
The Divine Works Elder’s eyes widened, but before he could say anything, Wang Chong coldly snorted. He reached out with his right hand and lightly waved it. Boom! An unstoppable beam of energy descended from the sky.
With a massive bang, the Divine Works Elder was crushed into pulp by this enormous energy and instantly killed.
“Bastard, he got off easy!”
“Your Highness, speak! What do you need us to do? So long as we can be of help, we will do our utmost to follow your orders.”
All of them were still lost in their wrath.
Wang Chong subtly nodded at this sight.
The most frightening thing about the Celestial God Organization was its numerous experts. No single country could compare to it.
Dealing with them and taking care of the cold wave would require the assistance of all the other countries.
Wang Chong explained his intentions. “The cold wave originated from the extreme north, and the temperature there is extremely low. It is much colder than where we are, and no one except Great Generals and above could reach there. Thus, I need the other countries to dispatch all their experts at this level, even the sovereigns, to follow me to the extreme north to deal with this cold wave.”
“As Your Highness commands!”
All of them lowered their heads, even sovereigns like Ozmish Khagan and Yeon Gaesomun.
The meaning of the Divine Works Elder’s words had made their hearts shiver in fear.
The Purification plan!
If this plan had succeeded, then after they had defeated the Great Tang, the Divine Works Elder and ‘Heaven’ behind him would have eliminated half of the alliance’s population. This was something that none of them had known about.
Even more frightening was that this mysterious faction regarded all lives on the continent as nothing more than blades of grass, holding no respect or empathy for life. Just as the Divine Works Elder had said, to them, humans were nothing but ants.
Their ambitions were far too frightening and terrifying.
If they were allowed to succeed, this world would turn into hell on earth.
Wang Chong nodded and quickly went into the details of the operation.
One hour later, the conference ended, and everyone left the hall.
Once everyone was gone, Zhangchou Jianqiong called out to Wang Chong.
“Wang Chong, the alliance countries just surrendered, and their loyalties are still uncertain. Having them go with us on this operation… is that really okay?
“In addition, once we leave, Youzhou will be leaderless. If there’s a rebellion or some other sort of conflict, I worry that it will be difficult to handle!
“After all, the other countries are not of one mind with us!”
The alliance had surrendered to Wang Chong because it had no other choice, and with Wang Chong above them, the alliance was too scared to try anything. But things would change if Wang Chong were no longer present.
Moreover, they were lacking in food, and when the time came, without anyone to keep a firm grip on the area, an uprising might break out.
Zhangchou Jianqiong had no choice but to be worried about these things.
However, it was not something he could speak about in front of the others.
To his surprise, Wang Chong casually grinned. “Heh, don’t suspect the people you use and don’t use the people you suspect!
“The alliance doesn’t have such plans, nor would they dare to even think about it. There’s no going back for them. If they start another uprising, they will only have death waiting for them. In addition, I’m sure Ozmish Khagan and the other sovereigns, along with their generals, understand what the consequences will be if they betray the Great Tang again.”
Wang Chong’s entire body radiated a persuasive and confident energy.
How could he not have considered the problems Zhangchou Jianqiong was concerned about?
“In addition, I have already instructed the Formation Elder to tear apart the Youzhou formation if the other countries dare to harbor ill intentions. Once the cold wave descends, how many people of the alliance will survive?”
Zhangchou Jianqiong’s eyes widened in surprise. He had not imagined that Wang Chong would leave behind a safeguard like this.
