Beastmaster of the Ages - Chapter 544
Chapter 544: 544
Aside from Ye Yi going after that golden flash, the Primitive Demon Ki also swept over . Even Tianming had joined in with his Three-Thousand Starfield . Before he could even take a look at the culprit, he executed Brilliant Stars .
“You want to assassinate me with something like this?” Tianming could only say that this person must be dreaming . His Three-Thousand Starfield failed to hit his opponent, but Ye Yi intercepted the culprit and his lifebound beast before they could escape .
When Tianming caught up, he wrapped the Three-Thousand Starfield around the culprit . When Tianming took a closer look at the man, he was shocked . “Chong Yang?”
Restrained by the chain, the old man could only stare at Tianming .
“You came at the right time . I just so happen to need you to teach me how to use the Cyclic Map . Since you’re already here, you can just stay behind,” said Tianming .
“You want to take me prisoner?” Chong Yang glared at Tianming .
“Is there a problem with that? You’re lucky that I didn’t kill you on the spot,” said Tianming .
“Li Tianming, you traitorous rebel—”
“Baaaah, shut up . I have no relations with the Ancient Qilin Clan . In the future, when I encounter anyone from the Ancient Qilin Clan, I won’t be lenient when killing them . And that includes you!” Tianming said coldly . Tianming would never be bound by morals .
When Chong Yang heard what Tianming said, he scolded, “Unfilial descendant!”
“Shut that mouth of yours!” Tianming slapped Chong Yang, knocking a tooth out of his mouth . Chong Yang’s face also started to swell . “Now, I’ll give you a spacious view of how the Ancient Theocrats and shameless dogs like you are going to die!”
“That will never happen . No one can beat His Majesty when it comes to planning! People like you will be extinguished sooner or later . The Decimo Dao Palace will be turned into a mass grave!” Chong Yang roared .
“Planning? Then what’s wrong with the Evil Suppression Formation?” Tianming sneered .
His words left Chong Yang dumbfounded . He had nearly vomited blood when he saw the Evil Suppression Formation activating, as he knew better than anyone what that meant . It meant that Autarch Qian’s plan had been a joke right from the start . He didn’t even dare to imagine Autarch Qian’s expression when he found out about it .
“Exalted one, qilins were once sacred beasts in my heart . An elder of mine once said that they were perfect . He taught me that, as a person, I have to be worthy of myself, the love of others, and finally heaven and earth . However, you let the qilin become a hydra’s lapdog! I despise people like you the most . ” Tianming handed Chong Yang to the Skyjade Astral King . Her strength was sufficient to trap Chong Yang in a ‘special cage . ’
“Tianming, you can cut the crap . Everyone’s the same before death and authority . You’re talking about it in this manner because you’ve never tasted death . When you see the Decimo Dao Palace reduced to a mass grave, you’ll know why people kneel!” Chong Yang laughed .
Tianming wasn’t in the mood to explain things to Chong Yang . Everyone had their own viewpoint, so why bother convincing others, knowing that it was impossible? Only time would tell the truth .
Although it was satisfying killing two hundred thousand from the Ancient Theocrats, they also harvested greatly . But judging from the current situation, the Ancient Theocrats had only temporarily retreated from the formation; the danger still wasn’t over yet . Commanding the Seven Astral Legions, Ye Yi immediately made preparations on the battlefield to their advantage .
“Grandsol Legion, cut off every head from the Nineshades Clan and throw them out . Pile them right by the entrance!” Ye Yi said with bloodshot eyes . This was a psychological tactic . If the enemies attacked again, they would see the pile of heads .
“The Decimo Dao Palace has been too benevolent, and we have to change . Now, we’ve finally got a clear look at their faces . If it weren’t for Ye Lingfeng, we would’ve been finished this time,” said Ye Yi .
Tianming felt that Ye Yi was right . If Li Wudi were here, he would just take it even further . A gentleman would never have a good outcome on the battlefield . While the Astral Legions kept watch over the Ancient Theocrats’ movements, Bai Mo came from the dao palace .
“How is it?” Bai Mo asked .
“We killed two hundred and thirty thousand . Judging from the looks of it right now, it’s a huge victory for us,” said Ye Yi .
“They should pay even more!” Bai Mo replied .
“What about your side? What’s the situation with the Evil Suppression Formation?” Ye Yi asked .
“Ye Lingfeng’s control over the Evil Suppression Pillar isn’t steady enough, and he only managed to activate a portion of the formation . But he’s smart . He knows how to separate the formation nuclei for us to help out . If the palace lord doesn’t wake up anytime soon, there’s no way the Evil Suppression Formation will reach its full state . We also have to expend a portion of our strength to preserve the formation . But it’s still better than losing it,” said Bai Mo .
“That also means the danger still isn’t resolved . ” Ye Yi fell into a short ponder, then continued, “Bai Mo, you should return . I’m worried that Autarch Qian might come personally . ”
“If he comes, we can only focus the Evil Suppression Formation on him alone . As for everyone else, we have the same number of troops . But Autarch Qian has the Cyclic Mirror, and no one can stop him,” said Bai Mo .
“Alright, I’ll stop the others then,” said Ye Yi .
“Oh, right . Did you see Li Wudi? Is he still alive?” Bai Mo asked with a grave expression .
Ye Yi shook his head .
“Tianming, what about you?” Bai Mo turned to Tianming . Tianming was currently the one who was most concerned about Li Wudi’s life and death .
“Hall King, I have no idea . But I have confidence in my godfather . He didn’t die when he was young . I believe that he’s still alive,” said Tianming .
“I believe that the Li Saint Clan’s will is stronger than the Nineshades Clan . You guys are the genuine clan that defies heaven . ” Bai Mo patted Tianming’s shoulder and nodded . He turned around and left, heading toward the formation nuclei to preside over the overall situation .
“The Evil Suppression Formation was initially a self-powered formation . We don’t have to spend so much effort on it, as long as we open it to the maximum extent, but only the palace lord can do it . Feng is still somewhat lacking . We’ll have to focus on the Evil Suppression Formation now, and can probably put away the Ninefold Silver Formation,” said Ye Yi . “The Evil Suppression Formation’s power depends on us, now . That means the Nineshades Clan still has a possibility of breaking through it . We can’t relax yet!”
“Roger!” Everyone felt their blood boiling .
Tianming stood before the Seven Astral Legions . He was badly injured, not to mention greatly exhausted . The Prime Tower was currently nourishing his injuries . As for his lifebound beasts, they had returned to his lifebound space to rest .
On the other hand, the Ancient Theocrats were waiting for Autarch Qian to return . Tianming was also waiting for news of Li Wudi’s life and death .
“Godfather, you said that you used to roam between life and death . I believe this crisis is normal for you, right? Please, don’t fall . …” Tianming looked outside the formation . As time passed, the Astral Legions held their breath and waited .
Suddenly, a figure descended from the sky . Before they landed on the ground, Tianming’s silhouette shot out like an arrow . It was a person covered in blood, with wounds all over his body . The wounds were so deep that even their bones could be seen . But fortunately, he hadn’t suffered any grave injuries .
Grabbing hold of the figure, Tianming yelled, “Godfather!”
“Holy shit, why are you so loud? Are you trying to destroy my eardrums?” Li Wudi rolled his eyes .
“You’re still alive?”
“Do I look dead to you?” Li Wudi roared .
Tianming was hugging Li Wudi . Seeing how lively his adoptive father was, Tianming finally felt relieved .
“Why aren’t you putting me down? Do you think I’m a princess?” Li Wudi glared .
“Alright . ” Tianming released Li Wudi, allowing him to fall to the ground and howl .
“What are you doing? Are you trying to kill me?” Li Wudi raged .
“I can’t?” Tianming went to help him up . Curling his lips, he commented, “Your blood stinks . ”
“What? Do you think that you’re powerful because you’re the strongest genius? Are you as smelly as me today?” Li Wudi said proudly .
“No, you’re the stinkiest person in the world today . ” Tianming gave in .
“Li Wudi, are you alright?” Ye Yi asked .
“I’m not . I’m freaking covered in wounds, and my lifebound beast is almost dead . Quick, bring out your best medicine,” Li Wudi shouted .
Ye Yi waved his hand and Situ Qinghe, the Life Hall King came over . He was proficient in healing, and had researched spirit herbs . Even the heavenly pattern formation he knew had healing functions .
“I’ll carry you!” Tianming knew that Li Wudi had just escaped death, despite how lively he seemed right then . This time, Li Wudi had saved the Decimo Dao Palace . If he hadn’t lured Autarch Qian away, Weisheng Yunxi wouldn’t have been able to return, and Autarch Qian would have long taken the Evil Suppression Pillar .
“Chen Fang, let me know immediately if the Nineshades Clan dares to come in . I’ll rush over immediately,” said Tianming .
“Roger!” Chen Fang nodded .
Tianming picked up Li Wudi and followed Situ Qinghe into the dao palace . As he carried Li Wudi, his clothes were stained by blood .
