Chapter 618 - The Deceased Emperor Makes his Move, White Tiger Unsealed
Qin Nan let out a sigh upon seeing this.
He switched his gaze to the Skyhowl White Tiger.
"White Tiger, still not giving up?"
The Blood-Winged Vermilion Bird and the Kingdom Protector Black Tortoise snapped. The Sky-Scorching Emperor and the crowd surrounded the Skyhowl White Tiger in the middle, leaving no gap between them.
At this particular moment, the Skyhowl White Tiger was the only one left in the battle!
"Give up? You have no idea how much I've sacrificed just to alter my destiny! And you're asking me to give up now? Don't you think I'm intimidated just because you have more people! I will kill Duan Qing and retrieve the spirit of the Deceased Emperor from him! White Tiger Unseal!" The Skyhowl White Tiger uttered a furious roar as its figure emitted a brilliant glow.
Its previously giant figure expanded further and its cultivation of the peak Martial Sacred Realm rose to the half-Martial Progenitor Realm!
White Tiger Unseal!
The strongest forbidden technique of the Skyhowl White Tiger, obtaining a temporary boost to its cultivation at the cost of its lifespan!
The Skyhowl White Tiger stomped forward while executing various attacks. It was no longer the protector of the Sky-Scorching Ancient Kingdom, but a bloodthirsty beast!
The Blood-Winged Vermilion Bird and the Kingdom Protector Black Tortoise became enraged. This Skyhowl White Tiger had gone totally crazy!
A terrifying battle had erupted.
Even though the Skyhowl White Tiger had executed its forbidden technique and its cultivation had risen to the half-Martial Progenitor Realm, it was still suppressed by the Blood-Winged Vermilion Bird and its companions. Wounds began to appear on its body, with blood splattering everywhere. Despite that, the murderous intent on its face showed no sign of diminishing!
"HAHAHA! No one can stop me today!"
The Skyhowl White Tiger went berserk, hurling out slashes with its claws.
All these just to alter its destiny!
However, a rare phenomenon took place at that instant.
The space surrounding them resonated like waves as a terrifying suppression was slowly unleashed.
The eyes on the Statue of the Deceased Emperor suddenly sprung open, emitting a blinding glow.
The Statue of the Deceased Emperor spoke. Its two words alone almost shattered everything in its surroundings into pieces.
The Sky-Scorching Emperor, the Blood-Winged Vermilion Bird, and the others were stunned as they did not expect the statue to be awakened at this time.
"Old man! What is it? You're trying to deal with me, too? I knew it, you've been keeping an eye on me from the very beginning! Come, I would like to see what a statue could do to me!" The Skyhowl White Tiger roared and charged at the Statue of the Deceased Emperor.
It was unclear why it was infuriated.
The Statue of the Deceased Emperor snapped.
Runes began to appear in its surroundings, each like a giant mountain. More than ten thousand of them descended upon the Skyhowl White Tiger's figure in the blink of an eye.
The Skyhowl White Tiger spat out mouthfuls of blood. It had no chance of resisting the power of the Statue of the Deceased Emperor even with its cultivation of the half-Martial Progenitor Realm.
The Blood-Winged Vermilion Bird and the others halted their movements upon seeing this.
After all, the Skyhowl White Tiger was considered one of the founding godly beasts of the kingdom, they did not feel right to eliminate it.
Let the Deceased Emperor deal with it.
"Why are you so stubborn, insisting to alter your destiny? Is it really that important?" The Statue of the Deceased Emperor said calmly, with no sign of emotion.
"Old man…" The Skyhowl White Tiger forced the words from its throat as it mocked, "How can I achieve the Martial Progenitor Realm without altering my destiny? I'm going to rank up to the Martial Progenitor Realm and kill you all!"
Its words were filled with sinister murderous intent.
"You sure?" The Statue of the Deceased Emperor replied, "Look at this kingdom, you've built it with your own hands. Why did you choose to destroy it instead of protecting it?"
The Skyhowl White Tiger was startled.
The crowd could feel strings being pulled in their hearts.
They had always wanted to become stronger at all costs but is becoming stronger the only goal they have in their lives?
The Deceased Emperor sacrificed his flesh and transformed it into a statue to protect the Sky-Scorching Ancient Kingdom. He refined his soul into a tenth-grade ranked Martial Spirit for his descendant.
In the Martial World, apart from becoming stronger, there were other things that mattered too.
"Old man! Cut the bullshit! I've decided! No one can stop me today!"
The Skyhowl White Tiger yelled.
Following this, an illusionary white tiger sprang out from the skull of the Skyhowl White Tiger and flew straight at Qin Nan.
The scene was too quick for anyone to react in time.
The Blood-Winged Vermilion Bird and the others were startled. This Skyhowl White Tiger has removed its Primordial Spirit from its flesh to devour Duan Qing!
The Statue of the Deceased Emperor let out a sigh. It turned silent as if it had already expected this to happen.
Oh White Tiger, I tried to advise you, but your action now is the same as committing suicide.
"Duan Qing! You've been a nuisance all along. Your body shall be mine from today onward!"
The Primordial Spirit of the Skyhowl White Tiger let out a hideous laugh before it entered Qin Nan's forehead and arrived at his Divine Sense.
Qin Nan was astounded. He did not expect that the Skyhowl White Tiger would try to devour him.
If it were something else, Qin Nan might feel his life being endangered.
However, his Divine Sense was currently being protected by the copper mirror!
At that instant, the Blood-Winged Vermilion Bird, the Kingdom Protector Black Tortoise, the Dragon Abyss Tree, the Sky-Scorching Emperor, the First Duke and the rest of the crowd were stupefied. They swiftly reacted and executed their moves, resulting in tremendous brilliant glows aimed at the Skyhowl White Tiger.
They can't let the White Tiger devour Duan Qing!
They have to stop it even if it meant using their forbidden techniques!
However, at that moment...
An icy female voice exploded in Qin Nan's Divine Sense.
The spirit of the Skyhowl White Tiger experienced the greatest fear it had ever encountered, before its Primordial Spirit was sent flying by a terrifying force.
The Blood-Winged Vermilion Bird and the others were still unleashing their attacks when they saw the Primordial Spirit of the Skyhowl White Tiger knocked out from Qin Nan's forehead.
The previously tyrannical, berserk Skyhowl White Tiger was currently lying on the ground, gasping for its last breath. It was only a step away from its death.
The crowd was stunned.
That's the Skyhowl White Tiger!
It was trying to devour Duan Qing with its Primordial Spirit but was instantly sent flying and almost killed in the process?
Even a Martial Sacred Realm expert would not be able to do that!
"Why...why...you...Who...exactly...are you…" The Primordial Spirit of the Skyhowl White Tiger crashed into the ground as it stammered. The fear in its eyes had yet to dissipate.
"Young Duan Qing, let me deal with it. Consider it a request from me." The Statue of the Deceased Emperor slowly said.
Qin Nan hesitated for a while, before nodding his head.
"You have my thanks." The Statue of the Deceased Emperor said, before it turned to the Skyhowl White Tiger and snapped, "Are you willing to admit your mistakes now?"
"Mistakes? Just kill me if you want…" The Skyhowl White Tiger wore a relieved expression. It could not tell if its decision was right or wrong, but it did feel slightly regretful at this instant.
The Statue of the Deceased Emperor reached out its hand and grabbed the Primordial Spirit of the Skyhowl White Tiger and its flesh before emitting a mystical glow.
The Skyhowl White Tiger turned into a statue situated beside the Statue of the Deceased Emperor. Its eyes staring down at the ground.
"It's fine. You should keep me company in protecting this kingdom…"
The Statue of the Deceased Emperor let out a sigh before the glow in its eyes slowly disappeared, causing it to become motionless once again.
The eyes of the Skyhowl White Tiger flickered slightly before it fell silent.
A man and a beast, one on each side, standing firmly in silence.
