War Sovereign Soaring The Heavens - Chapter 3557 - The Heavenly Emperor of the Given Heaven’s Divine Soul Mark
Chapter 3557: The Heavenly Emperor of the Given Heaven’s Divine Soul Mark
“Duan Ling Tian, your strength is impressive,” Wu Long said as he drew closer to Duan Ling Tian, “You’re the strongest top Eight Star God of War I’ve ever encountered. Even my senior brother, whom I admired most among the younger generation, wasn’t as powerful when he was a top Eight Star God of War…”
“So, are you going to surrender?” Duan Ling Tian continued to ask indifferently.
“Do I have any choice other than to admit defeat at this point?” Wu Long said with a sigh, “If you have a better idea, why don’t you tell me?”
Upon hearing Wu Long’s words, Duan Ling Tian withdrew his energy as well. A spatial storm raged for a moment before entering his body.
When everyone from the Heavenly Dao Alliance, including Shangguan Yun Feng, heard the duo’s conversation, their eyes lit up as barely concealed expressions of excitement appeared on their faces.
Wu Long was widely acknowledged as the strongest Eight Star God of War in the Nine Serenities Battlefield, and only Nine Star Gods of War could defeat him. However, Duan Ling Tian had defeated such a person. How could the members of the Heavenly Dao Alliance not feel excited? From this day onward, the strongest Eight Star God of War in the Nine Serenities Battlefield was someone from their alliance!
After Duan Ling Tian withdrew his energy and the others were enjoying their Vice Leader’s victory, Wu Long’s eyes suddenly glinted. Following that, a black ray of light suddenly shot out of his glabella toward Duan Ling Tian’s glabella. This black ray of light was Wu Long’s divine artifact that specialized in soul attacks. Although it was just a primitive divine artifact without a soul, it was still a divine artifact. Coupled with his strength, it was even more powerful than Emperor Grade Celestial Weapons with spirits. Moreover, divine artifacts that specialized in soul attacks were really rare as well.
Wu Long’s sudden and swift attack caught everyone by surprise. No one had expected him to launch a sneak attack when he had just surrendered. They could not but feel disdain at his lack of honor.
Duan Ling Tian was slightly surprised by the sudden attack as well. Nevertheless, spending years living his life on the edge of a knife had honed his instincts. Hence, as soon as Wu Long’s attack shot, his Celestial Origin Energy that was imbued with a strange energy rolled out immediately, When it crashed against Wu Long’s attack, it froze Wu Long’s attack briefly.
Although the pause was brief, everyone noticed it.
“The law of time!”
The law of time was the most suitable to deal with sneak attacks. For those who comprehended other laws, they needed time to build their defenses or launch attacks. However, this was not the case for those who comprehended the law of time. With just a thought, one could easily combine one’s Celestial Origin Energy with the law of time’s Fundamental Elemental Profundity. It was not one of the Four Supreme Laws for no reason, after all.
Hence, Duan Ling Tian was able to quickly respond and freeze Wu Long’s attack with just a thought.
“The law of time!” Wu Long’s eyes widened in shock as his expression changed drastically. This was completely out of his expectations. Since he had drawn close to Duan Ling Tian, he had been certain he would be able to kill Duan Ling Tian since Duan Ling Tian was not a Nine Star God of War. He was not afraid that the members of the Heavenly Dao Alliance would spread word of his despicable method of pretending to surrender before attacking. He had planned to annihilate the Heavenly Dao Alliance to silence them after killing Duan Ling Tian. With the old man who had accompanied him here, no one from the Heavenly Dao Alliance would be able to escape death.
Unfortunately, Duan Ling Tian’s law of time had completely disrupted Wu Long’s plan. Even if Duan Ling Tian had only comprehended the law of time’s Fundamental Elemental Profundity, it was enough for Duan Ling Tian to stop time to buy himself time.
“Since you have a death wish, I’ll fulfill your wish,” Duan Ling Tian said indifferently.
At this time, the law of time finally lost its effect, and Wu Long’s attack continued shooting toward Duan Ling Tian.
“Huang’er,” Duan Ling Tian called out.
Following that, a dazzling even-colored sword ray shot out of Duan Ling Tian’s glabella. It was so dazzling that everything in its surroundings dimmed in comparison. As much as it was dazzling, it was equally deadly. It shot out with a force that could seemingly destroy heaven and earth.
“No!” Wu Long cried out as soon as he saw seven-colored sword ray.
The Seven Orifices Exquisite Sword was a prominent divine artifact. It was unique in the sense that it could cast both physical and soul attacks.
To begin with, Duan Ling Tian was stronger than Wu Long. With his weapon that was superior to Wu Long’s, how could Wu Long stand a chance? The outcome was obvious.
Everyone, including the old man who had accompanied Wu Long here, shuddered. They watched as Wu Long’s attack was easily destroyed by Duan Ling Tian’s seven-colored sword ray. Their eyes widened in horror as the seven-colored sword ray continued flying toward Wu Long’s glabella.
Just as the seven-colored sword ray was about to enter Wu Long’s glabella, a powerful energy suddenly burst forth from his glabella. Then, a vague figure appeared before everyone’s eyes.
“The Heavenly Emperor of the Given Heaven?!”
Duan Ling Tian recognized the person who had just appeared. It was Ji You, the Heavenly Emperor of the Given Heaven, whom he had met during the Devata Realms’ Battle of the Geniuses. He was not surprised. Since Wu Long was Ji You’s second true disciple, Ji You must have left his divine mark on Ji You.
“Master, save me!” Wu Long cried out as though he had seen his savior.
“Duan Ling Tian?” Ji You was clearly surprised when he saw Duan Ling Tian as well.
“Heavenly Emperor Ji You” Duan Ling Tian nodded by way of greeting. Then, he said determinedly, “Your disciple tried to kill me using despicable means so I suggest you save your breath if you’re going to ask me to spare him. I will never show mercy to those who try to kill me.”
Although Duan Ling Tian was speaking to a Heavenly Emperor of a Devata Realm, he did not back down nor was he subservient. Moreover, the Heavenly Emperor was speaking to was widely acknowledged as the strongest Heavenly Emperor among the 81 Heavenly Emperors.
“I’m willing to pay any price as long as you spare his life.” Ji You frowned upon hearing Duan Ling Tian’s words. Upon seeing how determined Duan Ling Tian was, he could only relent for now to save his disciple’s life.
“I’m not interested,” Duan Ling Tian bluntly replied,
Ji You’s expression darkened immediately.
At the same time, Wu Long’s body suddenly shone with seven-colored light that kept growing brighter and brighter until it finally exploded.
With that, Ji You’s manifestation vanished as well. A divine soul mark was used to alert the owner of the mark if the person who bore the mark was in danger. Through mark, the owner of the mark could travel to the bearer of the mark and save him. Alas, Wu Long was in the Nine Serenities Battlefield so Ji You, who was a god, could not enter the battlefield to save Wu Long.
Needless to say, that explosion thoroughly destroyed Wu Long; nothing was left of him. Not only was his Spatial Ring destroyed, but even his blood had evaporated. Just like that, Wu Long, the second true disciple of the Heavenly Emperor of the Given Heaven and the strongest Eight Star God of War in the Nine Serenities Battlefield, died near the base of a small alliance.
“The projection that appeared earlier… Was that Heavenly Emperor Ji You of the Given Heaven?”
“Yes. He must have left a divine soul mark on Wu Long in case Wu Long met with a life-threatening situation. It’s unfortunate Wu Long was in the Nine Serenities Battlefield so there was nothing Heavenly Emperor Ji You could do to save him. Didn’t you see? He even tried to negotiate with our Vice Leader earlier?”
“That’s right! That’s right! However, our Vice Leader ignored him completely and killed Wu Long!”
The members of the Heavenly Dao Alliance, including Shangguan Yun Feng, were stunned by what had happened. They did not expect Duan Ling Tian to be so domineering that he even ignored Ji You, a god and the strongest Heavenly Emperor among the 81 Heavenly Emperors.
