Wu~ Wu~ Wu~
Spatial tempests rages in the surroundings of the Cloudlight Bridge, and it sounded like the waiting of ghosts. The spatial tempests could be clearly seen to be laying across the heavens and the earth, and they were like a boundless barrier that isolated the God Trove Mountain Range.
Only the Cloudlight Bridge emanated a green and hazy radiance of divinity. It was like a divine ray of light that stretched into the depths of the spatial tempest, and it was steady like a rock and impossible to shake.
Lu Chen and three more Void Guards sat on the ground before the Cloudlight Bridge, and their expressions were slightly gloomy.
A Void Guard couldn’t refrain from asking. “Senior Brother Lu Chen, it’s utterly impossible for that kid who called himself the number one expert on Cloudrest Continent’s Continental Ascensio Rankings to be a match for either Zhao Ding or Qiu Yan, so how could they have possibly fallen?”
Just moments ago, Zhao Ding and Qiu Yan’s Soulfate Tablets had shattered at the same time, and it caused all of them to feel disbelief.
“Perhaps he had the assistance of an expert. But since they dared to kill members of our Void Guard, we must slaughter their entire family in the future.” Lu Chen answered with an indifferent tone. “Don’t worry, everyone. Presently, Junior Brother Gao Lin has headed over to investigate with Junior Brothers Zhang Xun, Xia Heng, and Shi Zhun. We only have to wait for the news from them.”
The others relaxed when they heard this because Gao Lin’s strength was formidable and only inferior to Lu Chen. According to the evaluation of Young Master Zuoqiu, Gao Lin’s strength was sufficient to be ranked in the top hundred of the Ascensio Immortal Rankings.
Moreover, Gao Lin had a vigilant disposition and possessed various secret techniques to avoid danger. With him taking action, even if he wasn’t a match for the enemy, he would surely be able to return with ease.
But one of them still couldn’t refrain from speaking in a low voice. “What if Senior Brother Gao Lin and the others…”
He hadn’t finished speaking, yet the meaning behind his words was completely obvious.
“Even if they’re unlucky enough to perish, we must stand on guard here.” Lu Chen glanced at the person who spoke and spoke with an indifferent voice that revealed an indisputable tone. “If I’m not wrong, our target has already entered God Trove Mountain Range. At this moment, we can’t move from here!”
A wave of fine and intermittent swishing sounds resounded in the forest.
It wasn’t long before a group of four people appeared. The person in the lead was a young man who had a tall figure and white skin, and he had a pair of strange double pupils. As his eyes opened and closed, the entire scene in his surroundings was reflected down to the slightest detail within his eyes, and it seemed to be slightly unusual and mysterious.
He was Gao Lin that Lu Chen spoke of, a top existence that possessed the extraordinary natural talent ‘Double Pupils.’
“It’s over there. Follow me carefully.” Gao Lin sized up the surroundings and locked onto a direction before directly walking over.
In next to no time, strands of the smell of blood filled the air, and it was acutely noticed by the other three Void Guards. One of them said via voice transmission, “Senior Brother Gao Lin, I smell the aura of Zhao Ding and Qiu Yan.”
Gao Lin nodded. He was just about to speak when his eyes suddenly focused, and he waved his hand.
The hearts of everyone else became apprehensive as they stopped moving immediately.
“Interesting, even a grand formation has been set up…” Gao Lin sneered. Within his double pupils that flickered repeatedly, and the image of numerous apricot yellow Formation Flags appeared within his gaze.
Within a hidden gorge that was densely covered with trees, Chen Xi and Lie Binghan stood shoulder to shoulder, and a Formation Disk that emanated brilliant silver light and was smooth like a mirror floated between the two of them.
Shockingly, the scene in the surroundings of the Devil Vanquish Grand Formation had appeared within the Formation Disk, and the figures of Gao Lin and the others was reflected clearly within it.
When he saw Gao Lin wave his hand and stop before Gao Lin’s gaze descended onto a position where an apricot yellow Formation Flag resided, Lie Binghan’s eyes focused as he said, “They seemed to have noticed it!”
Chen Xi nodded with a calm and composed expression.
Lie Binghan couldn’t help but ask when he saw this. “Aren’t you…worried?”
“Do you know what a Nine Palace Link is?” Chen Xi replied with a question instead.
Lie Binghan was stunned, and then he shook his head.
Chen Xi said, “Then calm yourself and watch.”
Lie Binghan glanced at Chen Xi before he opened his mouth, yet he didn’t say anything in the end.
At this moment, he’d faintly guessed that the handsome young man before him was probably the target this group of people that locked down the Cloudlight Bridge were pursuing.
This could be discerned from how Chen Xi didn’t hesitate in the slightest to kill Zhao Ding and Qiu Yan before setting up a grand formation with the intention of drawing the enemy into his trap.
I wonder who this young man is. How did he offend such a group of freaks to pursue him? Lie Binghan pondered endlessly in his heart.
But in the next moment, he didn’t dare continue thinking about it because Gao Lin had started to remove the apricot yellow Formation Flags placed in the surroundings!
Thump! Thump! Thump!
Numerous apricot yellow Formation Flags were removed by Gao Lin, and then they transformed into a pile of scrap with a flick of his hand. His actions were carried out carefully and meticulously, and it carried a steady and calming force.
When those three Void Guards who followed Gao Lin saw this scene, they felt extreme admiration in their hearts because Gao Lin’s vigilance and cautiousness was something even the Young Master praised profusely.
Of course, the most important factor was that Gao Lin possessed an extraordinary natural talent like the ‘Double Pupils,’ and it was an extremely rare natural talent that was one in a million.
“Come, there are many more Formation Flags in the vicinity. But I’ve already destroyed a portion of it, so no matter how formidable this Grand Formation is, it’s impossible for it to be activated anymore.” After a short moment, Gao Lin heaved a long sigh of relief as he patted his hands.
Immediately, their group of four moved forward.
“They’ve already broken apart your grand formation, and it won’t be long before they’ll probably notice some traces and pursue us here. Why don’t we seize this opportunity to leave?” Lie Binghan’s heart constricted when he saw such a scene because the enemy had sent four people this time, and especially that person in the lead clearly possessed an even more formidable strength. So if they didn’t leave now, then the consequences would be unimaginable.
However, at this moment, Chen Xi started laughing instead, and he spoke words that caused Lie Binghan to be extremely astounded. “I didn’t waste so many immortal materials in vain. Now, it’s the time to reap the fruits.”
As he spoke, he raised his hand and lightly tapped the Formation Disk.
The Formation Disk shook and emanated a strand of unusual fluctuation. This fluctuation was like a gentle breeze that charged out of the hidden gorge, passed through the layers of trees in the forest, and transformed into strand of refreshing breeze that blew past the faces of Gao Lin and the others. It blew up the thick layer of dried up leaves on the ground before they scattered and drifted back down to the round.
“Wind has sprung up?” said a Void Guard with surprise.
Gao Lin’s pupils constricted instead, and he seemed to have noticed something, causing him to cry out abruptly. “Shit! Retreat! Now! We’ve been tricked!” His voice was practically like a roar.
Unfortunately, he was still a step too late. His voice hadn’t finished resounding in the air when strands of blazing light suddenly charged into the sky from all directions. Every single pillar of light was thick to the point a few people were needed to form a circle around it, and there were thousands distributed all over in an area of 50km in the surroundings.
At the same time, a terrifying, icy cold, and vast aura stretched out. This scene was like that of a peerless ferocious beast of the primeval times awakening from its deep slumber.
If one looked down from the sky, one would notice that those pillars of light that charged into the sky had actually formed an unfathomably profound talisman diagram that enveloped the entire heavens and the earth.
“Dammit! It’s actually a grand formation!”
“Senior Brother Gao Lin, wasn’t the grand formation broken apart by you earlier? Why has it emerged now?”
“How terrifying! Merely based on this aura, even a Golden Immortal would find it extremely difficult to retreat safely after being trapped within it!”
The three Void Guards were astounded while a wisp of panic appeared on their faces. However, their disposition tempered throughout the years allowed them to quickly calm down and take defensive positions while staying vigilant towards the surroundings.
“This is the Nine Palace Link! An extremely rare talisman diagram that reflects the arrangement of the nine palaces. No matter which palace is destroyed, it will activate the formation at the other positions. In other words, my actions of destroying the Formation Flags earlier indirectly activated this grand formation instead…”
“What meticulous planning. The person that set the formation up is probably an outstanding talisman formation grandmaster!” Gao Lin’s double pupils flickered without end and were suffused with an icy cold and ghastly sheen. “Everyone, there’s no need to panic. Once I see through its profundities with my Double Pupils, I’ll be able to break this formation apart. Junior Brothers, please protect me during this period of time!”
His voice was calm and revealed a composed tone.
The other three Void Guards nodded immediately when they heard this, and they withdrew their respective Immortal Artifacts before protecting Gao Lin at the center of them while staying vigilant towards the surroundings.
Swish! Swish! Swish!
Right when they’d just made preparations, numerous translucent blades suddenly splashed over like a violent storm from all directions, and they emanated sharp howls as they tore thousands of holes through space.
“Dammit! What grand formation is this? It’s actually capable of containing such terrifying sword qi?” A Void Guard shouted with a grim voice while swinging the silver halberd in his hand. His moved were profound and created an airtight defense in the surroundings.
All the halberd images in the surroundings contained the energy of the Laws, and they were fierce and ferocious. They completely obstructed all the strands of sword qi. However, the Void Guard was shaken by the force of the attacks to the point his vital blood surged, and his figure swayed without end.
Swoosh! Swoosh! Swoosh!
Before he could completely disperse the sword qi, another few thousands of strands of sword qi whistled over from all directions, and they were like a storm that surged over densely with an extremely shocking impetus.
“Quickly! Defend together! We must persist until Senior Brother Gao Lin sees through the secrets of the grand formation!” He roared furiously with a savage and ghastly expression. The halberd in his hand was suffused with an extraordinary glow and emanated strands of pure and overflowing energy of the Laws as it struck out in all directions with invincible might.
The other two of them didn’t dare dally either. Both of them successively utilized the attacks they were skilled in, and they resisted the boundless sword qi that came from all directions.
For a time, Immortal Force erupted within the grand formation and emanated rumbling that sounded like muffled thunder. It sounded like numerous volcanoes were colliding with each other and erupting, and it seemed to be extremely shocking.
“Every single one of these three fellows are too much stronger than the two people from before!” Within the hidden gorge in the distance, Lie Binghan was shocked repeatedly as he watched the intense scene reflected on the Formation Disk, and his expression became extremely heavy.
He was truly unable to imagine exactly where such freaks had come from because such strength was sufficient to stand supreme in the Mysterious Immortal Realm!
“They can’t survive past ten minutes of time, unless someone comes to help them…” Chen Xi moved his gaze and looked towards the extreme distance. He knew that the Cloudlight Bridge was situated at the end of the mountain range.
“Help them?” Lie Binghan’s heart constricted.
“I hope that someone is able to come help them.” Chen Xi’s gaze was deep as he said indifferently, “In that way, we might be able to seize the opportunity to charge through Cloudlight Bridge…”
Lie Binghan was stunned and he finally understood that all of this was actually planned by the handsome young man before him!
