Chapter 870: A New Crisis
In the pitch-black universe, there was a black stream of light speeding along.
Shortly after, the black stream of light arrived at the vicinity of the Deep Blue Plane.
“It has been a few millenniums since I returned. I wonder what the Deep Blue Plane’s situation is now.”
Inside the black stream of light was a black snake.
From the qi presence, the black snake was obviously stronger than the Black Rock Beast Sovereign.
With a swing of the tail, the black snake dove into the thermosphere of the Deep Blue Plane.
On the ocean that had a vast horizon, there were miles of clear sky.
“Home is still the best. The competition in Thousands Spirit City is too intense. If I am a little careless, I will be picked to the bones.”
The black snake transformed into a middle-aged man with black clothes. His face had a black snake tattoo that looked very vivid.
A few hundred million miles away on Black Rock Island, the Black Rock Beast Sovereign immediately detected the arrival of the black snake.
The Black Rock Beast Sovereign sent a transmitted message from far away, “Is it the Heaven Snake Beast Sovereign?!”
“Yes it is me.”
The Heaven Snake Beast Sovereign flew towards the Black Rock Island. After thousands of years, it just happened that he could get an update on the Deep Blue Plane’s situation.
“Have humans declined that much? It is a great opportunity!”
After knowing the situation from the Black Rock Beast Sovereign, the Heaven Snake Beast Sovereign’s eyes lit up.
It wasn’t possible to eradicate the humans, but if the demonic beasts could rule the Deep Blue Plane, he, the Heaven Snake Beast Sovereign, would be able to monopolize unlimited resources.1
Since ancient times, the demonic beasts and humans had been evenly matched. It was due to the fact that humans occupied the continents and had plenty of resources. But the demonic beasts didn’t occupy any continents, therefore, they lacked resources, especially in peak-grade spirit stones.
“With the Heaven Snake Beast Sovereign here, everything will be easy.”
The Black Rock Beast Sovereign knew well about the Heaven Snake Beast Sovereign’s strength. The latter was a true peak-tier beast sovereign. In a solo fight, not even the Iron Cloud Saint Lord would be a match.
The flying island was moving at a constant speed across the sky. The Iron Cloud Saint Lord was drinking wine while admiring the scenery below.
After reaching his cultivation realm, his lifespan would be considered eternal as compared to regular people. He was already used to being alone. Of course, he once had a dao companion too, but it was a pity that she was only a regular saint. Furthermore, she became a saint because of his help, therefore, her lifespan was limited.
After forcefully letting out a liquor breath, the Iron Cloud Saint Lord said to himself, “There are times I don’t understand why I am cultivating. A regular person’s lifespan is limited, but they have a fulfilling life. But for us martial artists, we are pursuing a vague and unreal target.”
After letting out a bitter laugh, the Iron Cloud Saint Lord shook his head, “When did I become so emotional.”
Right at this moment, the flying island shivered intensively.
“Black Rock Beast Sovereign, and… the Heaven Snake Beast Sovereign!” The Iron Cloud Saint Lord’s expression turned dark.
Putting the Black Rock Beast Sovereign aside, the Heaven Snake Beast Sovereign was famed for a very long time. Before the Iron Cloud Saint Lord became a saint lord, the Heaven Snake Beast Sovereign was already a beast sovereign.
The flying island had a first rate apex array board, therefore, the duo couldn’t break it immediately.
The Iron Cloud Saint Lord took out a communication token and immediately sent a message to Li Fuchen.
Wind Cloud City…
Sensing a vibration from the communication token, Li Fuchen took it out.
“Li Fuchen, the Black Rock Beast Sovereign and the Heaven Snake Beast Sovereign are attacking. Come over quickly to assist.” The Iron Cloud Saint Lord’s voice echoed from the communication token.
“The Heaven Snake Beast Sovereign?” Li Fuchen didn’t know the Heaven Snake Beast Sovereign, but he knew the enemy must be formidable.
Li Fuchen’s expression turned cold as there was a void distortion in front of him. He then stepped within the distortion.
At the same moment the Iron Cloud Saint Lord sent out the message, the array made by the array board had suddenly collapsed and the flying island was shattered.
“Iron Cloud Saint Lord, hurry up and surrender.” An intimidating voice echoed.
“Heaven Snake Beast Sovereign, is there a need to be so forceful?”
The Iron Cloud Saint Lord’s heart sank again. The Heaven Snake Beast Sovereign was stronger than his imagination. He thought that the first rate apex array board should be able to last for a moment!
The Heaven Snake Beast Sovereign couldn’t be bothered to waste time on words. Time wasn’t going to wait, as he wanted to eliminate the Iron Cloud Saint Lord before Li Fuchen arrived.
With a palm strike, a boundless black snake storm surged at the Iron Cloud Saint Lord.
“Flame Essence Wheel, go!”
The Iron Cloud Saint Lord summoned the top rate apex cardinal artifact, Flame Essence Wheel.
Boom Boom Boom…
The sky had a storm that constantly extended outwards.
One was a peak-tier beast sovereign, while the other used a top rate apex cardinal artifact to reach the strength of a peak level saint lord.
The battle between the duo produced a disaster and was unimaginably astounding.
Fresh blood burst out and the Iron Cloud Saint Lord was sent flying. There were countless snakes that entered and exited the wounds.
External force would still be external, as compared to a true peak-tier beast sovereign, the Iron Cloud Saint Lord was still lacking significantly.
The Iron Cloud Saint Lord circulated the Iron Cloud Saint Technique to expel the beast qi from the Heaven Snake Beast Sovereign. He then yelled out, “Flame Essence Wheel, transform!”
A flaming bird with a hundred heads rushed into the sky. The boundless flaming qi presence caused the Heaven Snake Beast Sovereign’s expression to change.
“Hundred-Headed Flame Bird?”
The Hundred-Headed Flame Bird wasn’t a tyrant beast, it was an astral colossal beast. Furthermore, it had the strength of a heaven lord.
It was obvious that the Flame Essence Wheel was infused with the quintessence energy of the Hundred-Headed Flame Bird. Otherwise, it wouldn’t be able to form the Hundred-Headed Flame Bird.
“This is just an energy mirage, do you think you can topple the world?”
The Heaven Snake Beast Sovereign let out a furious yell. His qi presence formed a giant black snake that lunged at the Hundred-Headed Flame Bird.
The snake and bird were in a heated contest. There were times when the giant snake would have the advantage, but there were times when the Hundred-Headed Flame Bird had the advantage.
But as the battle continued, the Hundred-Headed Flame Bird was getting weaker.
There was a flash of black radiance and the Hundred-Headed Flame Bird exploded into a sky of flames.
Due to the mental connection, the Iron Cloud Saint Lord was dazzled for a moment.
“Darkness Dragon Breath.”
Right at this moment, the Black Rock Beast Sovereign arrived beside the Iron Cloud Saint Lord and released the Darkness Dragon Breath.
In an instant, the Iron Cloud Saint Lord was covered in chars.
“Iron Cloud Saint Lord, today shall be the day of your death.”
The Black Rock Beast Sovereign followed up closely with a claw attack with the intention to turn the Iron Cloud Saint Lord into ashes.
“Trying to escape?!”
The Heaven Snake Beast Sovereign sneered when he saw a figure shifting far away. His qi presence formed a giant black snake that smashed on the back of the figure.
The figure turned into a blood mess while countless black snakes emerged from the body.
“Am I, the Iron Cloud Saint Lord, going to die here today?” The Iron Cloud Saint Lord wasn’t willing to accept this fate.
He might feel bored at times during his long lifespan, but most of the time, he was filled with fighting spirit. At the same time, he wanted to know the pinnacle realm of martial dao and wanted to know what was beyond the pinnacle.
“Iron Cloud Saint Lord, I am here.”
A glowing fist smashed onto the giant black snake. The fist might have scattered in the end, but it allowed the Iron Cloud Saint Lord to successfully dodge the giant black snake’s second attack.
The Iron Cloud Saint Lord’s eyes looked over and saw none other than Li Fuchen.
“You are Li Fuchen?” The Heaven Snake Beast Sovereign wasn’t certain.
“Didn’t the Black Rock Beast Sovereign say that Li Fuchen was only a low or mid-level saint lord? But that fist earlier had already reached close to a high-level saint lord.”
