The Human Emperor - Chapter 2317 - Alpha Supreme!
Chapter 2317: Alpha Supreme!
Essence Supreme formed seals with both hands, and Stellar Energy surged into the Supreme Essence Compass. With this immense energy, the compass once more expanded, and it descended with even greater speed toward Luo Supreme and his divine warriors.
Luo Supreme and Essence Supreme’s group had been evenly matched, but when Essence Supreme burned up all his life force, this balance was broken.
Everyone was aghast at this sight, all of them feeling a great peril descending. If the Supreme Essence Compass were allowed to make impact, they would probably all be crushed into powder.
“Everyone, hear my order! Use everything you have!” Luo Supreme’s two sons roared, and as they cried out, they led all the divine warriors in a charge, unleashing one hundred and twenty percent of their power. Countless streams of Stellar Energy flooded out like numerous giant dragons.
All of them could sense the great calamity descending on their heads.
But the divine warriors had barely attacked when a torrent of greenish-black Grotto Heaven Stellar Energy on par with Luo Supreme’s appeared within the dimension.
Before anyone could react, this energy took the form of a giant palm and swung at the combined Stellar Energy of Essence Supreme, Grand Supreme, and Radiance Supreme.
With one strike, that greenish-black energy obliterated the combined attack.
With bitter screams, the three of them were knocked away. No matter how strong Luo Supreme was, his strength was ultimately limited, and he could not possibly hold off the combined assault of Essence Supreme, Grand Supreme, and Radiance Supreme. But with this additional ‘Luo Supreme’, everything changed.
“This is impossible!”
As he was knocked away, Essence Supreme’s eyes flew open in disbelief.
When that greenish-black Stellar Energy surged out, he had clearly seen a familiar figure in that Stellar Energy.
The three of them were blasted to the ground, their attacks collapsing. In this one clash, Essence Supreme’s side was actually the loser. No one had expected this result.
“How could this be?”
Wang Chong and Li Xuantu almost instantly turned in Luo Supreme’s direction.
Luo Supreme was extremely shrewd and had been preparing for several thousand years. For him to slightly suppress Essence Supreme’s group by himself was not a big surprise to Wang Chong and Li Xuantu, but they had never imagined such a one-sided result.
However, this was far from the only shocking thing. Essence Supreme had not seen wrongly. At the moment the battle ended, a greenish-black figure appeared at Luo Supreme’s side.
This person wore a greenish-black robe of an extremely ancient style that seemed to have been plucked straight out of an ancient era. His hair was disheveled, obscuring his face.
Even so, this man still exuded a heaven-engulfing energy on par with Luo Supreme.
Let alone Essence Supreme, even Wang Chong and Li Xuantu were flabbergasted. They knew that Luo Supreme had to be hiding something, but no one had expected it to be another peerless expert.
Only a scant few in the world could reach the Grotto Heaven realm, and even fewer could reach the level of Luo Supreme. However, neither Wang Chong nor Li Xuantu had any impression of this mysterious expert.
“Alpha Supreme!” someone cried out in alarm.
“Impossible! Wasn’t Alpha Supreme killed by Li Taiyi? How could he appear here?!”
“Alpha Supreme! Such audacity! You dare to deceive Heaven! Did you fake your death all those years ago?”
Blood trickled from the corners of the lips of Grand Supreme and Radiance Supreme. Their internal organs had been heavily injured, but the two of them didn’t care. They stared angrily at the greenish-black figure, seemingly overcome with shock.
Their cries of alarm made Wang Chong’s eyes fly open in shock.
Wang Chong was familiar with both these names.
Ten-some years ago, before that incident when the Sage Emperor attempted to reach the Divine Martial realm, he was even stronger than in Wang Chong’s lifetime. It was only because of Heaven’s interference that the attempt failed and the backlash weakened the Sage Emperor.
But even when weakened, the Son of Heaven’s Sword that the Sage Emperor had left to him was still enough to easily kill Genesis Supreme.
At his prime, the Sage Emperor had undoubtedly been much stronger.
That ‘Alpha Supreme’ had died at the Sage Emperor’s hands.
This matter was publicly known, so Wang Chong hadn’t paid much attention to it. But judging by the reactions of Grand Supreme and Radiance Supreme, this person by Luo Supreme’s side was the deceased Alpha Supreme? How could that be?
Could it be…
Wang Chong had all sorts of ideas. Given how the Celestial God Organization operated, there could be some conspiracy going on.
But it took a few moments for Wang Chong to understand.
“This can’t be!”
Wang Chong didn’t know Alpha Supreme, but he understood the Sage Emperor.
Imposing and forthright!
This was the Sage Emperor’s style. While he was pragmatic, he would never lose his upright nature.
When the Sage Emperor was still brimming with confidence and energy, he would have never ‘colluded’ with the Celestial God Organization.
If the one who had killed Alpha Supreme was the Sage Emperor, then there was no question about it.
Wang Chong would always trust in this judgment.
With a thought, Wang Chong used ‘True World’, and the world before him transformed. When he turned his gaze on Alpha Supreme, he trembled in shock.
He saw something unusual, and he vaguely understood what was going on.
He was far from the only one to notice something fishy!
While Grand Supreme and Radiance Supreme were still overcome with rage and shock, Essence Supreme was cold and unperturbed.
“Luo Supreme, we all judged you incorrectly! To think that you had such tricks!” Essence Supreme said.
“When Alpha Supreme received orders to enter the capital, then was discovered by Li Taiyi and slain with one strike, all of us were stunned. But afterward, Alpha Supreme’s body disappeared. I was once ordered by Heaven to investigate this matter, but because the capital was too dangerous and overseen by Li Taiyi, we believed that Li Taiyi had taken it.
“To think that you took it and refined it as a clone!”
Everyone was alarmed, and even Luo Supreme’s two half-step Grotto Heaven realm sons were stunned. It was clear that they had not been informed of this.
Only Wang Chong was unperturbed.
The greenish-black figure next to Luo Supreme was just a shell and did not possess its own soul. This was what Wang Chong had seen through the True World ability.
“Starting one thousand years ago, you made yourself scarce, distancing yourself from both the mortal world and the Celestial God Organization. But in reality, you were watching to see how things developed. Because you were inconspicuous, Heaven paid no attention to you, as did Li Taiyi. However, you were scheming this whole time! Such profound and wise methods!” Essence Supreme coldly said, his voice filled with derision.
The inconspicuous Luo Supreme, the declining Turkic shaman religion… Everyone had been playthings for Luo Supreme this entire time.
But what drew Essence Supreme’s attention was only one thing. Amongst the twelve Supremes, Alpha Supreme was undoubtedly in the top three. His physical body had been through countless epochs and had been refined countless times, nourished in the Stellar Energy of the Grotto Heaven realm. It was definitely one of the strongest physical bodies. This could be seen by how, even after taking the Son of Heaven’s Sword from Li Taiyi, the physical body had managed to remain intact.
From this angle, Alpha Supreme’s physical body wasn’t just a little stronger than Essence Supreme’s silver-eyed youth. In fact, the difference was nigh impossible to measure.
Now that Luo Supreme had refined Alpha Supreme’s body for his own, one could only imagine his level of strength.
But after so many years, he had not revealed this fact to anyone, even his sons. This was proof of his shrewdness.
Essence Supreme suddenly somewhat understood why Luo Supreme had been so fearless, so calm and unhurried despite facing the three of them.
Luo Supreme suddenly began to speak, his voice thunderously booming through the dimension. “Essence Supreme, I’ve never made myself scarce as you claim, nor did I ever say that I was weak. You said all of these things, and these were all your judgments!”
He placed his hands behind his back and slowly walked forward.
At this moment, Luo Supreme had a domineering gaze and aura, so intimidating that it was impossible to look directly at him. An immense pressure radiated from his body.
He made a gesture with his hand, upon which that seal on Alpha Supreme’s body was released. An energy similar to Luo Supreme’s erupted from this body.
For tens of thousands of feet around, space distorted and grew blurry.
At this moment, Luo Supreme dropped all pretenses, not even bringing up his cooperation with Wang Chong, for there was no longer any reason to cooperate.
The Decalight Universal Dampening Formation was in motion and he had already sealed off the dimension. No one would be able to get out of here easily.
Moreover, Essence Supreme’s Heaven-Earth Life Refining Art was quickly about to reach its end. In a little less than half an hour, his physical body would turn to dust, and Grand Supreme and Radiance Supreme were no match for him.
“Your greatest mistake was believing that with a few drops of Heaven’s essence blood, the three of you could deal with me!”
Luo Supreme looked down at the other three, his eyes cold and emotionless. At his words, Grand Supreme and Radiance Supreme unconsciously stepped back, fear in their hearts.
In Luo Supreme’s voice, they sensed killing intent.
