Chapter 466: Battle

The blood on Emperor Jiawen’s face disappeared, and he looked pale. He opened his mouth and seemed to have exhausted all the strength in his body to ask, “S-she really said so?”

She really hates me!

“Mother instructed me before her death, so I must do it to the best of my abilities,” said Rong Xiu lightly.

The duo’s conversation confused everyone present.

Emperor Jiawen loved Consort Wan very much back then, and he loved only her in the entire harem. But it now seems like Consort Wan deeply hated Emperor Jiawen.

Everything about Heaven’s Canopy made the crowd even more muddle-headed.

Why was this Consort Wan’s last wish?

A thought suddenly surfaced in Chu Liuyue’s mind. Could Rong Xiu’s birth mother be someone from Heaven’s Canopy?! Only this can explain why Rong Xiu has such formidable talent and abilities and the battle outside Heaven’s Canopy.

Emperor Jiawen’s expression changed rapidly, and at last, he seemed to have made up his mind. He boomed, “Rong Xiu, I wronged your mother, but… Things have already ended up like this, and I can’t do anything about it. Originally, I didn’t plan to go to Heaven’s Canopy, but now it seems like I have to go!”

Heaven’s Canopy was right before him. As long as he broke through, he could enter!

That was a completely different place.

After Consort Wan’s death, he was extremely regretful. Hence, he hid his abilities and spent his life uselessly afterward.

Originally, he wanted to peacefully pass the rest of his life. But now, as long as he took a step out, everything would be different.

The balance in his heart was already tilted to one side.

Rong Xiu was unmoved as he seemingly smiled and said, “You can go if you want. You just have to return that thing to me.”

Emperor Jiawen’s face changed. “You want to take this thing away?”

“That originally belongs to my mother. What do you mean by ‘taking it away?’” Contempt flashed across Rong Xiu’s eyes. “Besides…”

Besides, Mother never agreed to leave that thing to you. Back then, he had used some methods to get this item. If one were to say ‘take it away,’ he was the one who took it away from Mother.

After being exposed by Rong Xiu, Emperor Jiawen was very awkward, and he flew into a rage out of humiliation. “Rong Xiu! All these years, I have never treated you badly! Is this how you treat me in return?!”

To think that I thought that Rong Xiu was naturally frail and that I was even upset about this for a very long time as I found countless heavenly doctors to treat him. In the end, it was all a hoax!

Rong Xiu’s brows moved, and he suddenly laughed. “Father, would you still treat me like that if you knew of this earlier on?”

Emperor Jiawen was suddenly stumped, and his face flushed red, but he couldn’t say anything at all.

Rong Xiu’s expression was filled with even more mockery. If Emperor Jiawen knew earlier that my body was fine and that I was very talented, he would’ve taught me a lesson earlier on. How would I have such a day? The so-called ‘good’ is just built on how I wouldn’t cause any threat to him. Just like how he claimed he was very devoted to Mother, he was the one that harmed her the most. He was also the one who made her upset even until she was on the deathbed.

To Rong Xiu, Emperor Jiawen’s words were just a complete joke.

Looking at Rong Xiu’s gaze that could see through everything, Emperor Jiawen swallowed back the words of defense. Eventually, all the expression on his face disappeared, and he was left with coldness. “If you want to stop me, you should see if you have that ability!”

Then, he started absorbing the surrounding Heaven and Earth Force.

The seal had completely disappeared, and all the strength in his body had flowed out. He only had to break through the last step successfully and become a stage-seven warrior; then, he could successfully enter Heaven’s Canopy.

Rong Xiu raised his hands.


The sound of the sword was heard once again.

The silver sword that was previously stuck to the ground suddenly flew up and landed in his hands.

His legs were crossed as he held the longsword’s handle tightly and stared at Emperor Jiawen with a deadly gaze.

The sword rose, and the sword landed!

A formidable sword aura slashed across.

The marble tiles were respectively crushed, and they flew up. Then, the tiles became powder amidst the terrifying sword aura.

When Emperor Jiawen saw Rong Xiu take action, he knew that something was wrong.

When he saw the sword aura coming toward him, his heart skipped a beat. Rong Xiu’s abilities have actually reached that of a stage-six warrior!

When a cultivator was breaking through, they had to gather all of their focus. This was even more so for those at higher cultivation levels.

Emperor Jiawen originally wanted to set up a barrier and block the attacks outside. But once Rong Xiu took action, he knew that it was impossible.

With no avail, he could only pause temporarily and return an attack to Rong Xiu. “Mountain River Lands!”

A wave of blue force escaped from his palms. Then, the second and third waves of force came out very quickly.

The force streamed out in waves before quickly merging together and running toward the river.

One could vaguely hear the sounds of the rushing water.

The force showered down like a river, and the harsh sword aura reached it immediately.

The two forces harshly smashed against one another. The next moment, the sword aura entered the river, and water flew everywhere.

Emperor Jiawen silently heaved a sigh of relief. The next moment, he saw that the blue river suddenly split in the middle and became two portions.

Emperor Jiawen’s expression suddenly froze.

The sword aura’s offensive traits didn’t seem to be reduced at all, and the strength hidden within the sword aura was even stronger than he had imagined.

Then, the sword aura started reversing.

The formidable aura made Emperor Jiawen’s body tense up.


His force was completely broken through.

The sword aura went straight for his head.

He tiptoed and rapidly moved backward. But at this point, he suddenly felt harsh, cold air coming toward him.

He avoided it and went to the side without hesitation. Then, he hurriedly looked to the side and realized that the one that attacked him was the red-tailed flood dragon.


When the red-tailed flood dragon failed its attack, its emotions became even more violent.

Its vigorous roar reverberated throughout the air.

The crowd spectating from the ground also felt the impact and gradually changed their expressions. Some of them who were weaker directly puked out blood.

However, the suppression didn’t land on Chu Liuyue. It was as though a transparent barrier was blocking the red-tailed flood dragon’s aura for her invisibly.

Chu Liuyue surveyed her surroundings and blinked. There are so many people who are affected, but why am I not?

Then, her gaze landed on Xue Xue.

“I am a legendary fiend. What’s a mere red-tailed flood dragon?” The legendary three-eyed eagle’s voice suddenly sounded.

Chu Liuyue immediately understood. I forgot about this! The legendary three-eyed eagle is in my dantian. Even though no outsiders know about it, fiends are very sensitive to this.

“That red-tailed flood dragon is the protector fiend of Country Yao Chen’s palace. Why would it attack Emperor Jiawen…” Chu Liuyue muttered to herself.

Just as she was confused, that sword aura already landed on Emperor Jiawen.
