Chapter 1324: Returning to the Sea Realm
What Yang Lie said was like a story to the Saint Kings of the Changyang clan. How could such a method exist, where someone could seal their memories in their ancestral weapon and then cast their soul into samsara?
At the very least with what they knew, there were countless Saint Emperors that had appeared on the Tian Yuan Continent in the past, and there were many who had possessed injured souls as well. However, no one had accomplished what Yang Lie did, undergoing countless reincarnations before awakening and recovering his former memories.
“Do the five of you understand your crimes?” Yang Lie continued to judge the five great elders. Not only did he recover his past memories, he had retained his current memories as well.
“Hmph, Changyang Zu Yunkong, do you really think that you can use this opportunity to pose as the founding ancestor by using some secret technique to control the Emperor Armament? Because if that’s true, it’s wishful thinking. Do you really think that you can trick us with a story you just made up? Do you think we’re children?” Changyang Qing Yun cried out. He decided to not remain in the area any longer. He immediately turned around to flee. He traveled toward Mercenary City as quickly as possible.
They had already started to believe the part about him being Yang Lie, but they refused to admit it because they had committed far too many mistakes already. The most severe one among them was sealing up Yang Lie’s talent, preventing him from reaching Sainthood for the rest of his life. He had almost lost his life because of that.
“I’d like to see how you flee before me,” Yang Lie coldly cried out. He was no longer as warm as before. He face became rather dark. If Changyang Qing Yun had admitted to his mistakes out of his own accord, he might have ended up letting him go easily, but not only did he refuse to acknowledge them, he was committing even more mistakes. This angered Yang Lie.
Swish! The Righteous Yang Sword shot out of Yang Lie’s hands with a resplendent glow as it pursued Changyang Qing Yun at the speed of lightning. It hovered above Changyang Qing Yun’s head before suddenly expanding, returning to its thirty-meter-long size. Afterward, it viciously pushed down with a tremendous presence, sending Changyang Qing Yun into the ground.
Changyang Qing Yun roared out. Powerful energy wildly surged from his body as he attempted to stop the Righteous Yang Sword. The sword was only thirty meters long at most, but it was even heavier than a mountain. Even with Changyang Qing Yun’s full strength, Saint King at Great Perfection, he was unable to stop it.
Boom! Changyang Qing Yun’s hands forcefully dug into the ground and produced a heavy sound. He wanted to blast open the ground, carve out a tunnel, and flee through it.
A tremendous and powerful energy leaked out of the Righteous Yang Sword, causing the ground to become as tough as steel. Changyang Qing Yun’s strike, which could easily destroy mountains on any other day, actually failed to penetrate the earth at this moment.
Seeing how the Righteous Yang Sword had left Yang Lie’s hands, the eyes of the four other Saints Kings from the Qing and Yuan branches immediately lit up. They looked at one another and attacked Yang Lie together.
The four of them did not hold back at all, striking out with their full strength. They all swung their Saint Weapons at the weaponless Yang Lie. The Saint Weapons criss-crossed with one another and formed a huge, invisible net around him, cutting off any path of escape. They then froze the space around him, limiting his movements.
Yang Lie was immobilized by the surrounding space, but he did not become flustered at all. His lips curled like he had just heard a joke, and with a flash of light through his eyes, four powerful sword Qis erupted from the sword that constrained Changyang Qing Yun in the distance. They shot toward the four Saint Kings.
The four sword Qis were shockingly powerful. Every single one of them was two meters long and radiated with a dazzling light. Wherever they passed, space would rip open, leaving behind four, long, black gashes.
Spurt! Spurt! Spurt! Spurt!
The four sword Qi instantly arrived before the four Saint Kings. The four of them were unable to dodge the sword Qis as they pierced through their chests.
The four Saint Kings all spat out a mouthful of blood. They were heavily injured. The four sword Qis had originated from the Righteous Yang Sword, so their power was incomparable to ordinary attacks. Even though they did not deal life-threatening damage to them, they had caused them unimaginable injuries, basically incapacitating them.
“You really are getting bolder and bolder to attack me after learning by identity. If it weren’t for the fact that you are direct descendants of the Changyang clan, I would have taken your lives long ago,” Yang Lie said with a sunken face.
The Saint Kings became afraid. They could already tell that their junior, who claimed to be their founding ancestor and had only just reached Saint King, was at a level they could not resist, even if they were all at Great Perfection.
This was because the Emperor Armament was just far too powerful. They believed that he could use all the energy hidden within the weapon.
With a wave of his hand, Yang Lie summoned the sword back. However, Changyang Qing Yun did not dare to run anymore.
“The five of you return and think about your actions and make up for the mistakes you made in the past. If it weren’t for the fact that the Tian Yuan Continent is currently facing disaster and is in need of people, why would I be letting you off so easily?” Yang Lie coldly said to the five of them. Afterward, he looked at Changyang Zu Xiao and Changyang Zu Yunxiao. He could not help but become filled with mixed emotions. After a moment of silence, he said, “During the period I’m gone, you can deal with the matters in the clan. After I return, I will give you origin energy and will do my best to make you Saint Emperors.” With that, Yang Lie ripped open a Space Gate and left.
Changyang Zu Xiao and Changyang Zu Yunxiao stood there speechless. At that moment, they were strewn between all sorts of feelings and had no idea how to describe them. The return of their founding ancestor was something that they should have been happy about, but they did not feel happy at all.
The five other Saint Kings all left in a disheveled manner. They dragged their bodies toward Mercenary City. They wanted to use the Class 7 Radiant Saint Masters there to heal. However, the five of them were not calm. Their founding ancestor had returned, which had greatly shocked them.
Changyang Zu Xiao and Changyang Zu Yunxiao returned to the Changyang clan in Lore City and explained everything that had happened to Changyang Zu Yeyun. She immediately became stunned after learning that her child was the incarnation of their founding ancestor. She was strewn with emotions while her face reflected her bitter thoughts.
“I never thought that Changyang Zu Yunkong would actually be the incarnation of founding ancestor of the Changyang clan. This is just far too shocking,” Huang Tianba was speechless as he watched everything unfold on a mountain peak. He then returned to seclusion to undergo his final breakthrough.
Back in the sea realm, Jian Chen and Tie Ta successfully emerged from the Xuanhuang Microcosm and returned. They appeared in the huge whirlpool of energy.
The worldly ebb lasted for only half a year and was almost over, so the energy had already thinned. It was nowhere near as abundant as before.
“Fantastic, you’ve finally come out. I had thought an accident had happened.” The sea goddess’ joyful voice rang out as soon as the two of them emerged. They saw the sea goddess’ illusionary figure floating before them. She was extremely excited.
“Esteemed sea goddess, fortunately I’ve succeeded and collected all the materials to reconstruct your body,” Jian Chen clasped his hands at the sea goddes with a smile before pulling out the two materials for the sea goddess to see.
The sea goddess could not help but tremble. She said, “Good! Good! Good! Jian Chen, I really haven’t misjudged you. You’ve really completed the task I gave you. This is fantastic. This just just fantastic.” The sea goddess could not calm down for quite some time now that there was a hope of being revived. This was because she had looked forward for this day for far too long.
