Chapter 603 – Another Divine Artifact Eaten
A pair of bare fists instantly killed Venerable Hun Yuan.
This was absolute suppression!
The entire Mount Hua Immortal Sect turned silent as everyone became shocked speechless.
A fight between Profound Emperors.
It wasn’t easy to determine victory in a short time yet an instant kill happened. This kind of outcome was something people couldn’t accept.
It was so eerily silent that not even a sound could be heard.
Several alert tones were sounding off inside Luo Tian.
As the alerts sounded off, Luo Tian faintly closed his eyes. He had a look of enjoyment on his face while his mouth curved into a slight smile. “It’s not just one or two days since I’ve wanted to explode you. I’ve wanted to explode you from the very first day I laid eyes on you.”
“Now let’s see what kind of loot you will explode out.”
“Congratulations to player Luo Tian for killing Venerable Hun Yuan. You have gained 1,000,000 experience points, 100,000 immortal energy…”
“Congratulations to player Luo Tian for gaining 13 inner cores.”
“Congratulations to player Luo Tian for gaining the Cloud Condensing Skill. Will you be cultivating it?”
“Congratulations to player Luo Tian for gaining a Concentration Ring.”
“Cloud Condensing Skill? A divine grade skill? Cultivate it!”
“In the future, I don’t need to walk anymore and can just ride on top of a cloud. If I could refine the Somersault Cloud¹ in the future, that would be even better! Hahaha…” Luo Tian was laughing internally to himself but then his expression changed because he started getting worried.
Before Luo Tian could finish worrying, the Concentration Ring inside his spatial ring had disappeared without a trace.
He could only stare at Eggy who was picking his teeth with a look of enjoyment on his face. But then Eggy opened his mouth and said in an unsatisfied manner: “Sigh~, another trashy object. There was no taste when I was eating it, what a letdown. When will I get another ancient grade artifact? Now those items are awesome.”
Luo Tian felt like committing suicide.
The thing he was worried about had happened.
That Eggy didn’t even give Luo Tian any time to look up the attributes before he devoured it.
“Eggy, oh Eggy…”
“You, you… you better scram out here for me! Let’s see if I can smack your butt until it blooms flowers or not!” The flames of rage were roaring inside Luo Tian’s heart. It wasn’t easy for a divine grade artifact to explode forth yet Eggy ate it before he could even look up its attributes.
This kind of feeling was really f*cking awful.
So awful that he felt f*cked beyond words.
Luo Tian felt all strength leave his body and an indescribable bitterness.
Before Luo Tian could finish speaking his mind, Eggy already started snoring. He pretended to be speaking in his sleep: “Boss, this, this, this one needs to sleep. I will wake up in about two days.”
As his voice faded…
He was already snoring loudly and didn’t care about Luo Tian’s angry expression.
“Congratulations to player Luo Tian! Your battle pet Eggy has leveled up!”
Another level up… Luo Tian could only shake his head with a bitter smile. “Eat my divine artifact yet you’re the one to level up. You… fine. You better not give me the chance… Little thing, I refuse to believe that I can’t take care of you!”
If Eggy doesn’t come out, Luo Tian really doesn’t have the ability to take care of him.
At this time…
The dust finally settled in the martial training grounds and Luo Tian was still standing in the same place with a depressed look. He then glanced over at the corpse of Venerable Hun Yuan and spat a glob of phlegm at it in disdain. “Ptooey~, you didn’t even explode any good stuff for me.”
This action by Luo Tian made Venerable Yun Ji’s face turn even more unsightly.
“Luo Tian!” he roared out.
Venerable Yun Ji’s Profound Emperor 6th rank powers exploded out. The air around them started exploding and space started distorting. All the inner sect disciples felt their hearts sink as if a large mountain was pressing against them. What an uncomfortable feeling!
It was the same for Luo Tian.
The Profound Emperor realm was much more complicated than he imagined.
It was different from the other lower realms.
One was one and two was two. Two was larger than one in any circumstances. This was the gap in levels when people were in the Profound Emperor realm. One of the main factors how Luo Tian was able to kill Venerable Hun Yuan so quickly was because Venerable Hun Yuan underestimated his enemy.
He thought Luo Tian wasn’t his opponent.
How would he have known Luo Tian would smash out with all his strength in the first move? If Luo Tian could kill someone with one punch, he would never throw out a second!
But now it was different.
Venerable Yun Ji’s cultivation was at the Profound Emperor 6th rank which meant there was a difference in five small realms. Strength and oppressive pressure was like the difference between heaven and earth.
His suppression surged out in all its might and Luo Tian’s body sank down. His sea of consciousness was violently shaking and this caused him extreme discomfort. Luo Tian’s expression showed he was suffering but he still looked up and shouted: “Venerable Yun Ji, such good moves!”
Luo Tian shouted internally: “Level 8 Berserk!”
After releasing 256 times the power of his base attributes, his sea of consciousness slightly improved. But he was still feeling extremely uncomfortable like someone was trying to gouge his brains out. Luo Tian clenched his teeth and held on before saying coldly: “Venerable Hun Yuan has already died, so naturally, you’re the next person to take action.”
“But before you make your move, I have some questions to ask you.”
Before Venerable Yun Ji could reject it, Luo Tian directly asked: “When the ten great immortal sects joined hands and surrounded the outer sect, did you show up at all? Did you fight back at all?”
Seeing all the young disciples of the outer sect dead, Luo Tian was very clear that those high and mighty inner sect Elders and the Sect Leader never showed up. They allowed the allied forces of the ten great immortal sects to kill to their heart’s content.
Because Han Hua and the others tried to fight back, they were going to be executed!
How laughable was this?
The reason Luo Tian asked these questions was that he wanted the surrounding inner sect disciples to hear what kind of person Venerable Yun Ji was.
Venerable Yun Ji started laughing unexpectedly and said: “The outer sect disciples are nothing but garbage. It’s perfect that they died because Mount Hua can save on a lot of expenses. It was good timing from the allied forces of the ten great immortal sects to clean out the trash for me, so I actually should be thanking them.”
He dared to say such words!
Luo Tian felt pain in his heart.
At this time, Venerable Yun Ji continued saying: “But it’s good that not a single inner sect disciple has died during this incident. They are the only useful people in our Mount Hua Immortal Sect, the true cornerstone of Mount Hua Immortal Sect and the catalyst to rise up again.”
“In order to protect the inner sect disciples, I compensated the ten great immortal sects with top grade xuan stones and inner cores. I wouldn’t hesitate even if I have to pay a higher price. As long as I can protect the inner sect disciples, Mount Hua Immortal Sect will have a future filled with hope.”
After saying this, a cold sneer appeared on Venerable Yun Ji’s mouth as he sent Luo Tian a sound transmission: “Kid, you want to play schemes with me? You’re still a bit too tender! Humph~!”
It was just as Venerable Yun Ji expected.
Those inner sect disciples were so moved that they started crying. In their hearts, Venerable Yun Ji’s position had risen to another higher step.
“Sect Leader, you have suffered too much.”
“Sect Leader, we will defend Mount Hua Immortal Sect with our lives.”
“We will not disappoint you!”
Most of the outer sect disciples had died and there were only about a hundred or so of them left. These people were naturally abandoned by Venerable Yun Ji because the inner sect disciples were his true focus.
It was unknown when…
The surviving outer sect disciples started coming out one by one with expressionless faces. Their hearts were dead as they glared at Venerable Yun Ji.
Also at this time…
One of them loudly yelled: “Luo Tian, I will support you! Just let Mount Hua Immortal Sect be destroyed!”
The feeling of being abandoned didn’t feel good.
Over a hundred people from the outer sect stepped out and roared out in unison as well.
Venerable Yun Ji sent out his spiritual senses before coldly harrumphing: “A bunch of garbage! All of you can go to hell for me!”
At this time…
Luo Tian took a step forward.
