Chapter 3461: More Obstacles
The Luofu Immortal Emperor was shocked, overwhelmed with surprise and fury. He was surprised by Jian Chen’s strength, how he could kill Immortal Emperors with such ease.
He was furious over his own miserable condition. This was the first time he had been reduced to such a miserable shape ever since he became an Immortal Emperor.
Countless thoughts passed through his head, but the Luofu Immortal Emperor did not hesitate at all. His soul shone brightly as the power of his soul erupted completely, fleeing as quickly as he could.
But in the next moment, the space suddenly froze as his soul was stuck mid-air, unable to move anymore.
On the other side, Jian Chen had already stopped the Yuqing Immortal Emperor, directly slashing down with a strand of sword Qi.
Madness filled the Yuqing Immortal Emperor’s eyes. He had already witnessed the Immortal Emperor of White Clouds and the Luofu Immortal Emperor’s fates. After clearly learning about Jian Chen’s strength, he was already aware that he stood no chance against him no matter what. As a result, when Jian Chen blocked his path, the Yuqing Immortal Emperor detonated his god artifact decisively.
With a great rumble, a terrifying storm of energy swept through the surroundings. The surging energy from the detonated god artifact immediately swallowed Jian Chen.
The Yuqing Immortal Emperor shot straight into the air as he tried to escape. As he did that, he took out the three Immortal-destroying Thunders from his Space Ring, about to throw them all out at the same time.
By now, he no longer hoped that the Immortal-destroying Thunders could injure Jian Chen. He only hoped that they could buy him some time to escape.
But at this moment, a green vine suddenly shot out from the energy swirl produced by the explosion of the Yuqing Immortal Emperor’s god artifact. Before he could even respond, the vine wrapped around him firmly, restricting all of his movements.
The three Immortal-destroying Thunders in the Yuqing Immortal Emperor’s hands could not be detonated in time either, falling out from his hand.
In the next moment, a gorgeous flower suddenly appeared over the Yuqing Immortal Emperor’s head. The petals opened up like a gaping mouth, immediately swallowing him whole.
The flower was the Immortal Devouring Orchid that Jian Chen had spent many years raising.
“You can’t eat this person. I still have a use for him. Spit him out.” Jian Chen walked out from the energy swirl unhurriedly. Reaching out, the three Immortal-destroying Thunders appeared in his hand, which he casually placed in his Space Ring.
The Immortal Devouring Orchid shrank up and hovered before Jian Chen, rubbing his arm as if it had just made a mistake. Afterwards, it spat out the Yuqing Immortal Emperor reluctantly.
Immediately, the Yuqing Immortal Emperor appeared again. Despite only being swallowed for a very brief time, he seemed like he had lost half his life. He had become extremely feeble, and his vital energies were much dimmer than before too.
In just a split second, over half of his vital energies had actually been devoured by the Immortal Devouring Orchid.
After all, the Immortal Devouring Orchid had completely matured now. It had a cultivation on par with Ninth Heavenly Layer Immortal Emperors. As such, it was effortless work for the Immortal Devouring Orchid to devour a Fifth Heavenly Layer Immortal Emperor.
The Yuqing Immortal Emperor was ashen. Jian Chen was already powerful beyond the point that he could fight back, yet he actually possessed an even more terrifying Immortal Devouring Orchid on him.
That was truly despairing!
Afterwards, Jian Chen did the same thing and destroyed the Yuqing Immortal Emperor’s body. He brought their souls into Immortal Emperor Taihang’s divine hall and forced the three of them to kneel before the remains of the disciples from the Sword Sect of Violet Heavens.
“I’m sure you’re familiar with their identity. These are all disciples of the Sword Sect of Violet Heavens. You killed some of them with a curse, while the remaining were trapped until the end of their lives.”
“The Grand Exalt of the Sword Sect of Violet Heavens had made a tremendous contribution to the Immortals’ World. He made a tremendous offering and sacrifice, yet after his death, his disciples have actually been humiliated and devastated by you through such vicious methods. You’re basically even worse than swine.”
Jian Chen viciously cursed the three Immortal Emperors. He did not plan on simply killing them.
“You can kill us, but you can’t insult us. We’re mighty Immortal Emperors. We possess such great status, yet you’re making us kneel before these low level immortals. Sir, you’ll pay for this sooner or later,” the Luofu Immortal Emperor said threateningly.
Jian Chen slapped the Luofu Immortal Emperor’s soul, leading to a miserable cry. His soul immediately became slightly dimmer. He growled, “In the past, the Grand Exalt of the Sword Sect of Violet Heaven was so great, yet you’ve actually tormented the disciples of such a great man. You’ve committed such heinous deeds, yet you still talk about pride? Do you think you’re worthy?”
The Yuqing Immortal Emperor raised his illusionary head and stared at Jian Chen. “Sir, we admit you’re very powerful, but there is something that we must tell you. The Sword Sect of Violet Heavens is in very deep waters. You have no idea what you’re getting into. If you interfere with this, you won’t be able to escape death.”
Jian Chen narrowed his eyes in response.
The Yuqing Immortal Emperor continued, “I don’t know your exact identity, but with everything that’s happened so far, your identity no longer matters. If you aren’t a disciple of the Sword Sect of Violet Heavens, I’d advise you to not interfere with this. Release us and return the Immortal-destroying Thunders, and we’ll forget about how you destroyed our bodies.”
“However, if you are a disciple of the Sword Sect of Violet Heavens, I can tell you very clearly that the more impressive you try to seem before us, the more miserable your fate will be.”
“Looks like you’re quite confident in that Master of Profound Secrets.” Jian Chen sneered, but his heart actually sank inside. He was not familiar with the Master of Profound Secrets, but he knew that the Master of Profound Secrets was not the only one behind the Sword Sect of Violet Heavens’ decline.
Earlier, when he communicated with the great elder’s lingering will, he had already learnt that the Sword Sect of Violet Heavens had far more enemies in the Immortals’ World than he imagined.
“However, regardless of how powerful the enemies of the Sword Sect of Violet Heavens are, no matter how many obstacles there are in my path, they can’t stop the rise of the Sword Sect of Violet Heavens. There will be a day when I personally overwhelm all the enemies of the Sword Sect of Violet Heavens,” Jian Chen thought. At that moment, a seed of firm belief took root in his heart.
Afterwards, Jian Chen brought the souls of the three Immortal Emperors before the remains of the great elder. Under the effects of the frozen space, the three of them were all forced into kneeling.
The Yuqing Immortal Emperor, the Luofu Immortal Emperor, and the Immortal Emperor of White Clouds were all extremely furious. Jian Chen’s treatment of them was basically even worse than killing them.
Unfortunately, before absolute strength, they could not vent it even when they felt great fury. They could only silently accept this painful torture that was basically even worse than death.
“You probably don’t know the name of the great elder from the Sword Sect of Violet Heavens. His name is Taihang. There was also an element of the Laws of Curses to his death. Not only did the Laws of Curses accelerate Immortal Emperor Taihang’s death, but it also killed many disciples inside the divine hall.” Jian Chen looked at Immortal Emperor Taihang’s remains and continued to ask, “None of the three of you are skilled in the Laws of Curses. Tell me, who used the Laws of Curses back then to kill all these disciples of the Sword Sect of Violet Heavens and Immortal Emperor Taihang?”
The Luofu Immortal Emperor raised his head with difficulty. He stared at Jian Chen resentfully and madly, snickering away. “You want to know who used the Laws of Curses? I can tell you. Kneel before me and beg me.”
“Come, kneel and beg me, and I’ll tell you who he is.”
Jian Chen flicked his finger, and a wisp of sword Qi was immediately sent into the Luofu Immortal Emperor’s soul, making him howl out in pain.
“Still so stubborn even at a time like this. I’ll let you feel pain even worse than death then.” Jian Chen glanced at the Luofu Immortal Emperor coldly before using the secret techniques of Martial Soul Force to torture his soul.
Immediately, the Luofu Immortal Emperor’s howls became even more shrill, like he faced hellish torture. He basically wanted to die at this point.
The pain was so bad that even a mighty Immortal Emperor could not endure it, letting out chilling howls. That immediately struck fear into the Immortal Emperor of White Clouds and the Yuqing Immortal Emperor. They became unsettled.
“Hahahaha, Immortal Sect of Luofu, Immortal Sect of White Clouds, and Immortal Sect of Yuqing, how discourteous of the three of you. You’re actually trying to claim the legacy in the divine hall all for yourself. You can’t just do that. You need to save a share for our Immortal Sect of Heaven’s Union at the very least.”
“How can our Immortal Sect of Great Peace miss out on something so great?”
“Immortal Sect of Heaven’s Union, Immortal Sect of Great Peace, it’s not like you take the path of sword cultivators, so what does this legacy mean to you? After all, this legacy was prepared for sword cultivators, so why don’t you let our Sword Sect of Flowing Light take it instead?”
At this moment, thunderous voices boomed out from above the Starfall mountains. The terrifying energy turned into sound waves, directly passing through all the formations set up by the three Immortal Emperors of the Immortal Region of Green Plains. They also passed through the divine hall in the depths, directly reaching the interior.
Immediately, the entire Starfall mountains shook violently. The mausoleum was on the brink of collapse as great boulders rolled down.
