Chapter 681 - Successfully Overcoming the Tribulation
The words served as great thunder in the hearts of the crowd, as if they possessed some kind of horrifying power. For some reason, their souls began to tremble at that moment, as if the conqueror of the Nine Heavens were about to descend upon them.
"Mm?" Qin Nan was startled.
An icy glow appeared inside the rift all of a sudden, which formed a crystal that encapsulated Tang Qingshan and Meng Jiangnu inside it, and turned into a glacier.
A loud explosion took place and the thunderous sword slashed downward, but it failed to inflict any damage onto the glacier.
"A mere Tribulation dares to challenge my authority, be gone!"
The icy voice appeared once again.
A giant hand reached down from the sky and grabbed the thunderous sword, before extracting a puff of black smoke from it.
The hand tightened its grip, causing the smoke to explode and dissipate.
A piercing cry could be heard from the thunderous sword. Its aura dropped rapidly and in the blink of an eye, only a tenth of its previous strength remained!
It was as if the grasp had shattered the force of the Tribulation.
The hand gave the thunderous sword a huge slap and shattered it into pieces instantly, which transformed into a pure stream of energy that flowed into Tang Qingshan's body.
Tang Qingshan's aura experienced a tremendous change, as a sacred glow burst out from his body.
The aura of the Martial Sacred Realm was spread into the surroundings.
At that instant, the authorities and the cultivators were dumbfounded.
What's going on? Where did the mysterious hand come from that instantly shattered the Tribulation into pieces, allowing Tang Qingshan to overcome his Tribulation? What exactly was going on?
"How can this be!" Progenitor Wen Dao wore a twisted face. Even with his peak Martial Sacred Realm cultivation, he failed to peek through the cultivation of the hand. In other words, the owner of the hand possessed an overwhelming power, which surely surpassed the Martial Progenitor Realm.
Most importantly...Tang Qingshan had overcome the Tribulation!
That son of a b*tch had actually done it!
"Tang Qingshan, why aren't you ranking up to the Martial Sacred Realm now?"
The icy voice appeared once again.
Meng Jiangnu and Tang Qingshan wore blank expressions on their faces, a sign that they had yet to recover from their astonishment. As Tang Qingshan sensed the sacred force within his body and the calmness of the sky, he finally realized that the Tribulation was over.
A mysterious expert had helped him to overcome the Tribulation as a way of repaying the favor of the Godly Exterminator.
"Senior…" Tang Qingshan burst out yelling as a sudden thought crossed his mind, "Why didn't you save my Senior Brothers! I would prefer you to save them instead of helping me!"
The death of his Senior Brothers penetrated his soul like a sharp blade, leaving a scar that would never recover for the rest of his life.
"That is your destiny, and theirs too. I have no right to decide their fate," The voice replied, "It's better if you were able to fulfill their dying wish."
The words struck Tang Qingshan like thunder.
Their dying wish was to not let their Junior Sister down even if it meant opposing the will of the Heavens! Furthermore, carrying their dreams...and proceeding on the path of cultivation toward the peak!
Tang Qingshan finally realized that his Senior Brothers were not only sacrificing themselves for Meng Jiangnu, they were doing so for his sake too.
The limitation of the Canglan Continent's Martial Spirits was completely unchangeable. Tang Qingshan had been chosen as the successor of the Godly Exterminator the moment he had found the Godly Exterminator Scriptures, thus granting him an extraordinary fate. How would his three Senior Brothers be willing to witness his death?
At that instant, Tang Qingshan could somehow see the blurry figures of Peak Leader Duanmu, Peak leader Luo, and Peak Leader Zhang wearing gentle smiles looking toward their beloved junior.
Oh Qingshan, you were our Junior Brother. A great future lies ahead for you. How could we let you die so soon?
Tang Qingshan's eyes reddened as tears rolled down from them.
A real man didn't cry easily, except when it hit a certain part. Even though his Senior Brothers were jealous of him, in the end, they chose to protect their Junior Brother.
"I promise I will carry your dreams and reach the peak! You have my word!"
Tang Qingshan raised his head and uttered a deafening roar.
A powerful aura burst out from his body into the sky as if a valve had been opened.
First-layer Martial Sacred Realm!
Second-layer Martial Sacred Realm!
Third-layer Martial Sacred Realm!
Fourth-layer Martial Sacred Realm!
The aura finally came to a halt upon reaching the sixth-layer Martial Sacred Realm.
Meanwhile, the cultivators and the authorities could see Tang Qingshan standing in the air with the Mengpo River by his side. His eyes emitted an incredibly sharp glow!
Tang Qingshan's hair swayed in the wind as a murderous aura swept the place. A crimson glow descended from the sky and turned into a crimson robe with the character '杀' (kill) in the center of it!
The successor of the Godly Exterminator had returned!
Qin Nan was deeply moved upon seeing this. Through the Tribulation, not only had Tang Qingshan's cultivation improved significantly, but his life had changed too. That being said, no one could justify whether it was the best outcome.
Even Qin Nan could not say anything himself.
"Speaking of which, what exactly is this copper mirror? Why is it related to the Godly Exterminator? Why was it willing to help this time?" Qin Nan was utterly confused. For once, he somehow felt that there was nothing the copper mirror could not do.
Qin Nan's eyes flickered.
The force restricting the cultivators had slowly dissipated. In other words, the cultivators had regained control of their bodies.
"Senior has successfully overcome the Tribulation, which means Madam Heavenly Fortune's power is disappearing!"
Qin Nan was startled.
The barrier had prevented the authorities from entering the battlefield. However, since the Tribulation had finished, once the barrier was gone, he would surely be targeted by them all.
They would surely attack him!
A few cracks began to appear on the barrier like giant centipedes, which soon spread rapidly throughout its surface.
Following an explosion, the barrier shattered into pieces.
The Leader of the Trading Alliance, Progenitor Wen Dao, the Leader of the Wanxiang Pavilion, the Sky-Scorching Emperor, etc. immediately collected their thoughts. Their eyes flickered sharply.
