Three Martial Sages appeared one after another and broke into the Forbidden City to kill Emperor Yuan.
The entire imperial capital was shaken by their arrival.
There wasn’t anyone who doubted the identities of these Martial Sages, it was obvious to everyone.
At this moment, inside the Forbidden City in the imperial capital, the aura of Martial Sages spread their majesty all over the city. The scene was similar to the duel at the top of the Forbidden City between two Martial Sages more than 10 years ago.
There were three invading Martial Sages, plus two from the royal family.
Five Martial Sages were present in the scene.
Yesterday, there was only a single known Martial Sage in the world.
It was the one in the Forbidden City—Nameless.
The other forces with Martial Sages chose to hide them as trump cards.
However, the vassal lords were angered by Emperor Yuan’s actions.
They chose to reveal the Martial Sages in their camps.
For hundreds of years since the Yuhua God Dynasty was founded, there had never been a move to remove the vassal lords.
Emperor Yuan’s insistence on removing the vassal lords was a pioneering feat.
Therefore, the nine vassal lords didn’t choose to hide their trump cards anymore.
They directly exposed them all.
Didn’t the Emperor want to eliminate them?
Wasn’t he relying on the fact that he had his own Martial Sage?
Didn’t he want to rid the empire of its problems?
Then, they shall come to the Forbidden City and kill him.
It was only after they had done this would they reconcile with the Yuhua God Dynasty.
By that time, the next emperor of the Yuhua God Dynasty would definitely give up any thought of revenge for Emperor Yuan, and he would also choose to reconcile with them.
Remove the vassal lords?
He was just dreaming!
This was just how confident the nine vassal lords were.
Three Martial Sages appeared one after another, the first two were blocked by Nameless and the old emperor.
The third person stood on the top of the Forbidden City, the spot where the Among Flowers Sect’s Patriarch had died. He hurled a javelin at a rapid speed toward Emperor Yuan, causing a terrible and harsh eagle-like shriek as it pierced through the air.
This Martial Sage from King Tianying’s camp looked at this scene coldly, waiting for the javelin to pierce through Emperor Yuan’s body.
But what happened in the next was far beyond his expectations.
With a cracking sound, the javelin broke.
It wasn’t broken by a third party.
Because in the Cold Palace, Lin Jiufeng was still looking at this with a surprised expression.
As soon as this Martial Sage’s aura broke out, he noticed it from the Cold Palace.
From a few hundred miles away, he was watching this scene calmly, still not planning to make a move because Nameless was in the palace.
When the second Martial Sage appeared, Lin Jiufeng only raised his brows, but he still didn’t move.
Because the old emperor of the Yuhua God Dynasty, who was also Lin Jiufeng’s grandfather, had made his move.
So, there wasn’t a need for him to act.
But when the third appeared, Lin Jiufeng couldn’t sit still anymore.
He couldn’t possibly sit still as Emperor Yuan was being killed.
But before Lin Jiufeng could act, Emperor Yuan roared angrily.
Facing the assassination, he directly erupted.
Boom! Boom! Boom!
An aura that shook the sky filled Emperor Yuan’s body.
He tore off his disguise, the disguise of being in the Grandmaster Realm for his true cultivation base was that of the Great Grandmaster Realm.
Moreover, he was a Great Grandmaster who practiced a demonic cultivation technique.
“The ancient demonic book. Nine Overlays.” After Emperor Yuan ascended the throne, he had already been preparing for the removal of the vassal lords and had secretly read the demonic cultivation technique that his father cultivated.
This demonic cultivation technique was very evil.
It consumed one’s life energy in exchange for power.
It would do it little by little every day, and as time passed…
The power that would be in one’s hands would only grow even more terrifying.
There was nothing that one could do to stop this process. Unless the practitioner managed to reach an incredibly high-level of his cultivation technique, there was nothing that could be done to stop the demonic technique from devouring their own life energy.
The last emperor didn’t succeed.
Emperor Yuan didn’t succeed either.
He gained power, but his life energy at this moment was at its final drops.
This was why he was anxious to initiate the removal of the vassal lords.
He wanted to solve the problem of the nine vassal lords in the final moments of his life, so he could leave a relatively safe and stable Yuhua God Dynasty to his successor.
He didn’t want his successor to inherit a nation that was full of holes and problems.
He didn’t want his successor to be like him—who spent the last ten years solving these problems without much result.
Emperor Yuan activated the demonic cultivation technique and used the Nine Overlays skill.
At this moment—in terms of power alone—Emperor Yuan was now in the Martial Sage Realm.
He held an incredibly strong and violent might in his body.
Raising his hand, he easily split the javelin in half.
His body floated in the air and dense demonic energy emanated from him.
A blood-red light surrounded him.
His eyes turned crimson, looking extremely sinister.
“Forcibly elevating yourself to the Martial Sage Realm, you are just burning your life energy and asking for death.” The Martial Sage who threw the javelin snorted coldly from the top of the Forbidden City, not placing any regard for Emperor Yuan at all.
Even if they were on equal footing now, how long could Emperor Yuan continue to burn his life energy?
“Long enough for me to kill you.” Emperor Yuan was full of killing intent.
“You could have chosen to be a normal emperor and enjoyed countless glory and wealth, and the ability to have as many women as you want. It’s not like the nine vassal lords will rebel against you. Why do you insist on removing the vassal lords and even burn your life energy to practice a demonic cultivation technique?”
The Martial Sage that threw the javelin felt that Emperor Yuan’s brain was broken.
He could have chosen to live through his life happily, being a man of great authority.
Yet, he chose the most difficult path? For what purpose?
At this moment, Nameless and the old emperor stopped what they were doing.
Kou Tiande and the Shadow Assassin also stopped and looked at Emperor Yuan.
They also wanted to know why.
Although the nine vassal lords were kings in their own territories, and they didn’t listen to the Emperor’s commands, they didn’t actually rebel against him.
So, why did Emperor Yuan insist on removing the vassal lords?
In the eyes of the vassal lords, it was Emperor Yuan’s own fault causing such a large fuss out of this matter.
What’s more, Emperor Yuan even burnt his life energy just for this matter.
The fire of hope in Emperor Yuan’s eyes burned fiercely.
He was also asking himself this question.
If he chose to live his life like what the Martial Sage had said, he could’ve lived his life in comfort.
Be a bad emperor, be a mediocre emperor, be a licentious emperor…
Or maybe even as a carpenter emperor…
There were so many directions for him to choose from, but why did he choose to try and save this falling nation?
How tiring this was!
How tough this was!
To even sacrifice his own life for this.
In the Cold Palace, Lin Jiufeng looked at Emperor Yuan with a complicated expression on his face.
This younger brother of his who had always called him, ‘Big Brother’ had actually secretly practiced a demonic cultivation technique. Now, he was burning his life energy in exchange for power.
Lin Jiufeng knew that this younger brother of his was an idealist and a doer.
His motive was very simple, but removing the vassal lords was only the first step.
His true motive was to solve the problems of the nation and make it great again.
“Because I am the Emperor of the Yuhua God Dynasty, the Majesty of the billions of people in the world—the Supreme Ruler—I naturally have the responsibility to seek the welfare of the people of the world, and you guys are one of the root causes that hinder me from all of these.”
He was the Emperor!
So he must remove the vassal lords!
There was no other reason.
When Emperor Yuan’s voice landed…
An extremely terrifying blade light suddenly appeared in the air from more than a hundred meters away.
It slashed towards Emperor Yuan, wanting to kill him.
“Since you want to remove the vassal lords, then go and die.”
Indifferent words filled with killing intent sounded beneath the moonlight, and the fourth Martial Sage appeared.
Emperor Yuan was about to fight back.
He had the power to fight back.
But in the very next moment, a series of terrifying auras appeared to suppress him.
Boom! Boom! Boom! Boom! Boom!
Five terrifying auras appeared, representing five Martial Sages.
They suppressed Emperor Yuan at the same time.
Emperor Yuan spurted blood, unable to move.
That huge blade light covering the sky and the earth was about to cut him in half.
Nameless and the old emperor hurriedly moved to intervene.
But Kou Tiande and the Shadow Assassin stood in their way.
Emperor Yuan’s life was at stake.
The entire Forbidden City was shocked, countless people looked at this scene in despair.
Nine Martial Sage acted together just to kill Emperor Yuan.
Who could save Emperor Yuan now?
The suppressed Emperor Yuan’s demonic energy slowly dissipated.
In the end, he still failed.
“Am I going to die?” Emperor Yuan watched the blade light fall, whispering calmly.
When he cultivated with the demonic cultivation technique, he was already prepared to die.
But to die in such a place, at such a moment?
He was just a bit unresigned.
“Big Brother. In the end, I still didn’t succeed in doing something that can change the world.” At the last moments of his life, the person that Emperor Yuan thought of was his biological elder brother who was born from the same mother as him.
In the Cold Palace, Lin Jiufeng was currently holding the Demon Slaying Sword in his hand.
His face was cold and his heart burned in fury.
His hand rubbed the Demon Slaying Sword.
For more than ten years, he had never seriously and completely executed the [Ultimate Heaven Slashing Sword Skill].
Because he had no enemy.Read latest Chapters at wuxiamobile.com Only
But now, he had.
So, he slashed out with his sword.
An extremely splendid and resplendent sword energy appeared like a descending light, surging for hundreds of miles.
At this moment, the sky turned bright.
