Chapter 721 - The Vanished Ley Line
"That's the ley line!" Great Emperor Qingming couldn't hide the surprise in his eyes as he was bathed in the holy light.
When it came to experience, he was definitely one of the newer members in the Immortal Region's higher-ups. He was not alive during the era where the ley line was exposed to the world.
As he felt himself fill up with spiritual energy…
He suddenly felt like most of his life was all for nothing.
I managed to reach the level of half-step into the Immortal King level. I'm sure it is only a matter of time before I completely break through.
Everyone from the Immortal Region could feel the effects of the ley line…
"It's so powerful," That was the only complete sentence he could mutter.
The truth was that, even he had a split second where he wanted to take the ley line for himself. However, he discarded it as quickly as it appeared, while his body greedily absorbed the pure spiritual energy in his surroundings.
Two hours then passed by in the blink of an eye.
In his perspective, he merely shut his eyes for a split second.
No, I can't let this continue. I can't forget my purpose for being here just for my selfish needs.
He forcefully cast his greedy thoughts aside and turned to the Flame Emperor, "Big Brother Flame Emperor?"
"Did you get your fill?" Flame Emperor smiled.
Great Emperor Qingming blushed. He understood just how unsightly he was.
"Don't be embarrassed. You never experienced that era, so it's understandable for you to react that way. Your self-restraint is truly stronger than I expected. I thought you would enjoy it for a while longer," Flame Emperor said in a comforting manner.
"Big Brother Flame Emperor, please don't tease me," Great Emperor Qingming shook his head with a smile. "What should we do about the ley line?"
That was one question Flame Emperor did not have the answer to.
As one of the oldest members of the Immortal Region who has experienced the era of the ley line, he naturally reacted far better than Great Emperor Qingming.
However, he had also lost himself for a split second the moment the ley line appeared.
After he dispelled the influence on him, he began to consider how he should deal with it.
However, he did not arrive at a solution yet. He even started to wonder how the Yellow Emperor actually made the ley line hide obediently for several tens of thousands of years.
"I'm not sure," Flame Emperor shook his head.
Yet, at that very moment, the figure of the gold dragon roared in an irritated manner, sending raging waves of spiritual energy fluctuation out from its body.
That lasted for a good fifteen minutes. Both Flame Emperor and Great Emperor Qingming stepped back. They were very surprised to find themselves unable to resist the rage of the ley line.
"What's going on?" Great Emperor Qingming asked.
"I've never experienced something like this."
"You haven't either?"
"Mhmm," Flame Emperor smiled wryly. He must be looking down on me. But I can't do anything about it. The Yellow Emperor was the one who had the most contact with the ley line. He might know what is going on.
As the ley line continued to rampage, the pair stayed where they were and watched the ley line.
The rampaging ley line vanished.
Both Flame Emperor and Great Emperor Qingming were shocked when they saw that. They immediately searched using their spiritual consciousness, but still could not locate it.
What worried them even more was that the enhancement coming the ley line disappeared as well.
If the ley line had merely moved, then its enhancements on the spiritual energy in the Three Realms would still persist, but would only change depending on the distance between the location and the ley line.
However, the Flame Emperor and Great Emperor Qingming could clearly feel that it completely disappeared.
It was like…
When the Yellow Emperor hid the ley line.
Even those in the Heavenly Court and the Underworld felt that as well.
The comfortable sensation of dense spiritual energy disappeared.
"What happened?" Many people, who were sitting down, stood up and asked their friends and comrades. However, what they saw were only identical expressions to what they had on their faces.
Some people merely smiled at who didn't take it seriously.
While some others started to curse. Regardless, it was clear that all of the Three Realms felt the disappearance of the ley line.
"Big Brother Flame Emperor, we…" Great Emperor was frantic. The ley line was of utmost importance, but they just lost it.
Even Flame Emperor was feeling frantic.
"Hurry, find Ye Zichen. He definitely knows what happened!"
Only the Yellow Emperor would understand what was going on!
"As expected of the demon marshal. You are very resilient to a beating."
Ye Zichen punched Black Dragon's face once again, knocking his enemy to the ground and creating a huge crater.
Black Dragon had stopped attacking. It wasn't because he didn't want to. Rather, it was because he didn't have enough spiritual energy to do so.
All he could do was defend with all his might and wait for a chance to escape.
"Huh?" At that moment, Ye Zichen frowned in the air.
At the same time, Fatty Yin flew over, "You felt it too?"
"You as well?" Ye Zichen raised his eyebrows. It was a strange feeling as if the "spiritual energy recovery buff" on him was gone.
At the same time, two figures shot through the air.
Ye Zichen turned around and saw Flame Emperor and Great Emperor Qingming hurrying over.
"Why are you here? Didn't I tell you guys to find the ley line?" As he noticed their expressions, then linked it with what he felt… "You…"
Flame Emperor whispered a few words in his ear.
Ye Zichen was shocked, "What!?"
"You don't know what's going on either?" Flame Emperor frowned.
"How would I!?" Ye Zichen shrugged with a wry smile. "I swear to the heavens that I've never encountered something like this before!"
The ley line had rampaged!
Ye Zichen frantically searched through all his past memories, but could not find anything.
Flame Emperor's face dropped. Ye Zichen doesn't know what's going on!?
Did the ley line just disappear!?
Meanwhile, Fatty Yin's expression also grew sullen…
In the heat of their frantic discussions… they all forgot about Black Dragon, who had been waiting for such an opportunity.
"Go!" Black Dragon shouted towards his subordinates.
The various demons immediately freed themselves from their restraints and charged out of the valley behind Black Dragon.
"Ye Zichen, the bad guys are running away!" Lorie shouted.
She wanted to stop them…
But there were too many of them…
