When the light aura blossomed out from the spear tip, Lu Tian Wen’s vision turned blank, but he became clear–headed again.
He was shocked to realise that the trembling in the surrounding air had disappeared, the intense wind and thunderhad disappeared, the power he had projected into his Law Surface, had actually disappeared without a trace.
He started perspiring cold sweat.
Before he could react, a powerful wind pounced towards him inside the white light.
Almost subconsciously, Lu Tian Wen brought his Thunder Wind Spear to his chest.
A powerful blade slashed onto the Thunder Wind Spear, the surprising force caused Lu Tian Wen’s palm to turn hotand almost lost control of his spear, as though it wanted to fly out. ~Why does Ghost Face Mask still have strength?This technique was the one he used before.~
Lu Tian Wen was shocked, he still did not understand how Tang Tian’s technique had broke through his technique.All of the power in his Law Surface had shot back into his body, unless the opponent had enlighten on a Law Domain,there was no way it could break through his technique.~
Clang clang clang!
The sound of consecutive strikes came out, along with the powerful wind, striking onto his spear, causing him totremble like a sieve.
~What….what the hell is going on…..~
The blood on his face slowly retreated away, causing him to become pale white, in normal circumstances, he wouldnever ever put such a slash in his eyes. But at the moment, he was already an arrow at the end of its flight, with theconsecutive slashes, he no longer had time to take a breath, and his arms were numb.
He held in one breath in his chest, but he never had the chance to exhale and inhale again.
Clang clang clang clang!
His arm was extremely numb, but he did not dare make any reckless moves, he continued to hold onto the samebreath, if he were to make a careless mistake, he would waste this single breath, and that would be when he die.
His face was distorted, his entire body trembling, but he held on.
He no longer remembered how many slashes he had taken.
Ah Mo Li was the first to slash out, and by borrowing the recoil of the spear, he once again landed at the big gates.Seeing that his brothers were all rushing towards Lu Tian Wen, he smiled, his bloodied face revealing his pure whiteteeth.
He retreated back towards the big gates, every step he took would leave behind a bloodied footprint.
He retreated back to his original position.
There were times that we have to be pushed back to our starting point, and only then would we be able to seethoughts from then.
With the Broad Guillotine Blade by his side, the warm viscous blood flowed along the blade and dropped on theground.
Despite being bloodied all over, the pair of eyes never shed any tear or anger, only a look of determination andseriousness.
He dragged the Board Guillotine Blade and started sprinting, towards the stone castle’s gates. Towards the skyoutside, towards the light of the battle, towards his dreams and conviction, he ran with all of his might, the windwhistled past his ear, the blood stench all over him, the wounds all over him burned, every step he took was hisscream to the world
~I have never given up, come on, Ah Mo Li.~
Passing through the big gates, he ran towards the light, stepping up the stone walls, he used all of his might andthrew himself out.
~Come on, Ah Mo Li!~
Seeing Lu Tian Wen in front of him who kept on becoming larger, Ah Mo Li screamed in his heart, all of his musclestensed up, pulling the blood stained Broad Guillotine Blade from bottom up, he suddenly slashed out.
Executing the Heavens
Lu Tian Wen who was struggling bitterly, had vision extremely blurry, when a blood red figure suddenly rushedtowards him like a wild bull.
The spear in his hands no longer had any slashes towards him.
Lu Tian Wen’s eyes was filled with fear, a blood red line cut along dead center of his body, splitting him in half. Chi,blood spurted all over, and the fear in Lu Tian Wen’s eyes grew denser.
Ah Mo Li did not hold back when he flew straight towards Lu Tian Wen, exhausting every last bit of strength in him.He struck the mountain behind, and rolled into the distance like a boulder, all the way until he was stopped by a realboulder before truly stopping.
He laid on the ground, and could not even lift his finger.
He stared blankly at the sky, his face a blank and filled with disbelief.
~I did it…..I did it…..did I do it?~
Tang Tian who was floating in the eye finally calmed down, his eyes went black, and he dropped.
A sword concept flew into the sky, and in the next moment, a figure that emitted the aura of an ice mountainappeared, and grabbed onto Tang Tian. It was Han Bing Ning who had just came out from closed door training.
Han Bing Ning was currently as sharp as a cold sword, her entire being emitted an extremely sharp and cold aura,completely different from her reserved past. After sustaining injuries, she kept herself in closed door training, whileeveryone was fighting with their lives at stake, her heart brimmed with unhappiness and regret, as she was unableto fight alongside everyone else, and could not come out earlier and stop her progress.
Sssssi, her figure flashed, and immediately appeared beside Ah Mo Li, and picked him up as well.
Although it was just a slash, but all the Null Division Members had completely exhausted their physical strength,they sat down on the floor and gasped for breath.
Ming Zhu was stunned, it was not only her, the entire Echo Hill Castle was in a strange state of silence.
After a long time, cheers shook the entire sky.
The group of people who were spectating the battle, after hearing the cheers from Echo Hill Castle, were filled withshock and disbelief.
“They…..they actually killed Lu Tian Wen?” Victor’s words sounded like nonsense.
The rest were nowhere better.
“Impossible….Lu Tian Wen’s technique, how can they break…..” Xu Ye’s currently looked like a maniac. Out of all of them, he was the strongest, and thus was impacted the most.
Xu Ye’s mumbles were buried deep in everyone’s minds.
Lu TIan Wen’s last technique, was another grade technique, something they had never seen before, how could it bebroken?
Roland Su was stunned, the entire fight seemed like a dream. 65 Null Division Prisoners was definitely not a smallnumber, and this bet, to the Roland Family, would never come again. If she had not taken the position of thePatriarch for a very long time and had powerful authority, she would never have had the authority to make such adecision.
Lu Tian Wen’s fanatical display made her believe that her position had been usurped from her wrong decision, evenshe did not believe that Ghost Face Mask could hold on.
She knew that she had lost.
But no one had thought that, it was totally the opposite, not only was Ghost Face Mask not killed by Lu Tian Wen,but he even killed Lu Tian Wen. Roland Su who initially thought that she had gambled everything she had away, wassuddenly struck by a rainbow when she realised the reality, and in that time, she just felt as if she was in a dream.
Ben Sen was the first to recover from his shock, he did not hope to achieve anything, but for the sake of the twoyoung ladies to see and witness a powerful battle, but who knew that he was able to witness such a heaven defyingbattle.
The twins were void of blood as their faces as white as paper, their expressions stuck.
Ben Sen suddenly spoke out: “Xiao Yu, Xiao Ye.”
The two ladies stared at Ben Sen in a daze.
“The two of you no longer need to return to the residence.” Ben Sen said gravely: “Miss Han has suffered a lot in theMu’er family, Young Miss has always feeling ashamed and uneasy, the two of you will go to Echo Hill Castle now, andfollow Miss Han from now on, and assist her. Service Miss Han, like you have serviced the young miss.”
The two young ladies could not understand Ben Sen’s instructions at all, but as they had been groomed by him sinceyoung, they listened and executed his orders through and through.
Ben Sen did not explain, and said: “Go. Their great battle have ended, they are lacking in manpower, the earlier yougo, the more you can help.”
The two young ladies ‘oh’ in puzzlement, and turned to fly towards Echo Hill Castle.
The rest then recovered from their shock, they never expected for Ben Sen to snatch the first move again, and wereall scolding him in their hearts, the Black face looked like a fool, but was sharper than the most intelligent person. Hebrought his future generation out to see the world, and then gifted the Steel Guards over to Han Bing Ning, themoves he made were all ingenious.
Although Lu Tian Wen’s defeat was due to a gang up of Ghost Face Mask and his subordinates, but Ghost FaceMask’s strength was just slightly weaker than Lu Tian Wen, Furthermore, the Null Division Prisoner’s display ofbattle power had shocked everyone.
If Ghost Face Mask could assemble the entire Null Division, he would definitely sweep the entire Sin Domain and beinvincible.
At this time, everyone knew that Ghost Face Mask was the biggest and fattest backer they could go for, and thosewho did not jump onto him were pure dumb.
Ben Sen’s move to gift the two young ladies to Han Bing Ning was an ingenious move, as Han Bing Ning had been in abad position in the Mu’er family. In truth, no one knew of the relationship between Han Bing Ning and Ghost FaceMask, and if Han Bing Ning were to be enraged by the two young ladies, it would not be good. Gifting them to hercould be considered a misfortune as well. Furthermore, Han Bing Ning was definitely an important figure in GhostFace Mask’s Null Division, and even if they were unable to obtain the favor of Ghost Face Mask, obtaining the favorfrom Han Bing Ning was good as well.
It could be said that Ben Sen’s play was done perfectly, causing the others to be furious and jealous.
Roland Su was the most calm, she had shown her position the earliest, and faced the greatest risk and danger, andwas not like the rest to bet after the event. She looked at Victor’s bitter face, Xu Ye had no worries as well, as long ashe gift the Null Division Prisoners in his hands, naturally that would be a favor as well.
~The Thiopiate Family is truly stupid.~
She sighed in her mind, she knew of the reason why Victor sought her, as he already had thought well in his ownplans. He hoped that Ghost Face Mask would be able to see his advice towards Roland Su and his heartfelt actions,so that the Thiopiate family would not be in too bad a situation.
She secretly promised herself, if she was able to help Victor at that time, she would.
Xu Ye suddenly laughed: “I am truly curious, when this news reached the ears of the Lu Family, and reach Qin Zhen’sears, how would they look.”
“They will definitely think that it is fake.” Ben Sen who was feeling glad joked, something that was rare.
Victor suddenly said: “Say, what if we were to suddenly ambush the Qin Family now?”
Everyone had just calmed down, but were shocked by Victor’s suggestion.
Victor’s eyes flashed with a look of ferocity: “Once we choose to side with Ghost Face Mask, we will be going against Qin Zhen. Do you think that Qin Zhen will let us go? So why not just break of all ties, take the opportunity that Qin Zhen is not here, and rescue all the Null Division Prisoners out from the Qin Family. With the additional Null Division members, Ghost Face Mask will be even stronger, our deeds will be even bigger, and even if Qin Zhen comes back, so what?”
Seeing everyone’s hesitations, Victor’s face flushed red, and spoke excitedly: “Don’t tell me you guys still wish tohave some sort of leeway? Will Qin Zhen give that to us? Never! If he knows that you guys gave the prisoners toGhost Face Mask, and knows that you, Ben Sen, gave your Steel Guards to Han Bing Ning, he will definitely not let usoff. We will not stand a chance against the powerful martial artists on the List of Powerhouses. Only Ghost FaceMask can handle Qin Zhen!”
Ben Sen stood up: “Count me in.”
Roland Su stood up as well: “Count me in as well.”
Xu Ye revealed a bitter laugh: “This time, we are all boarding the pirate ship.”
Everyone looked at each other, and laughed out loud.

Tang Tian had no time to bask in the joy of victory, he had many thoughts that required sorting out. Enlightening onthe Sacrificial Execution at the last crucial moment caused the demon figure to form, allowing the might of his fist toincrease. Tang Tian always had sharp intuition with regards to battle related things. He had the faint feeling that thedemon figure formed from the Heavy Demonic Execution was much more valuable than the Heavy DemonicExecution itself.
And he needed time to comprehend everything in silence.
It was not only him, everyone in the Null Division had benefitted from the battle.
The blood in Ah Mo Li’s body had seeped out from his skin, showing how much load he had to bear. His body was already extremely tyrannical and strong, and the load was was like the most intense of flames that ferociously refined the blood and the muscles in his body. His Tiny Null Flames had completely transformed into Null Flames, and he ignited his Primordial Fire Origin.
What was even more worth celebrating was that his state of mind had a breakthrough, the aura he gave off waseven more stable and heavy, the initial reckless vibe he gave off actually became reserved. Because of thisbreakthrough, he actually had a miraculous achievement in the third slash of the Heavy Demonic Execution, [Devil,I, Execution].
And the other person who had the greatest benefits was Nie Qiu. his senses were far stronger than everyone else, and under the immense pressure of Lu Tian Wen, he actually projected his senses out like a spiderweb across the entire field, completely observing everything. When he roared out at the last moment decisively, it caused internal injuries, but also caused his state of mind to metamorphose. What no one could ever expect was that the law he had gained enlightenment one was an extremely unique law, [Yin Yang Formation].
This unique law did not require him to use any power of the physique, but it could not form a Law Exposure, and wasunable to give him power. Upon enlightenment, it was instantly a Law Surface, and was like an invisible net thatfloated around Nie Qiu’s body.
Nie Qiu’s initially heightened senses and astuteness became even more terrifying.
Most importantly, Nie Qiu saw hope in his path towards war formations, and to a military general, nothing couldmake him even more excited.
Han Bing Ning needed time to retract the sword concept she had unleashed, the current her was, although she wasshowing off her ability, but she was still far from perfectly controlling it.
And as for the other members of the Null Divisions, all of them gained different degrees of tempering, none of themhad retreated, but they had struck out into the light aura with everything they had. Not fearing death even in thatmoment, it caused them to improve greatly. The Old Null Division was just an experimental group, they had neverexperienced real wars or battles.
Experienced soldiers and new recruits would always have very obvious differences, furthermore, after goingthrough such an intense, terrifying and difficult life and death battle, all of them went through heaven shockingtransformations.
The after battle period was extremely crucial for them. As long as they could digest everything well, their overallstrength would take a qualitative leap.
So the first thing that Tang Tian did when he woke up was to order the entire Echo Hill Castle to be closed.
Pitiful Ping Xiao Shan began his large scale special training. This time, it was truly a large scale special training, otherthan Tang Tian, every single Null Division member were all crying piteously for food.
All of them knew that time was precious, and thus no one wasted a second.
A human’s life is the same as going through a battle, while fighting, one would be fighting for himself, fighting againstthe enemy, and fighting against oneself. Maybe one will never truly win against oneself, but if one never go throughany battles, he would have no qualifications to even call himself a failure. Because only people who have truly lost ina battle are called a failure.
They were an entire group of fighting zealots.
Bright Light City.
“I never thought that we would meet under such circumstances.” Sima Xiao was filled with emotions, and revealed apensive look: “If I remember right, you are called Sima Xiang Shan?”
The two of them were of vastly different positions, if not for Sima Xiang Shan having the same last name as him, hewould never take note of such a minor figure.
Sima Xiao laughed: “How am I the Scorpio King now? We are all just lowly prisoners. I am curious, how did youobtain the trust of the Mo Family.”
“Nothing much.” Sima Xiang Shan said coldly and eerily: “A wise man submits to his circumstances.”
Sima Xiao laughed: “Don’t try and probe me. I know of you. You, Ah Mo Li, Han Bing Ning and Liang Qiu, all of youwere together with Tang Tian in Star Wind City. Others might betray Tang Tian, but you guys will never do it.”
How could the person who became Scorpio King be any ordinary person? He had obtained all the information onSima Xiang Shan quickly.
Sima Xiang Shan squinted his eyes, his mind trembling slightly, he had never thought that Sima Xiao would knoweverything about a minor figure like him, but he remained unfazed: “This is not a betrayal, who knows if he is alreadydead, I can’t follow him into the grave.”
Sima Xiao chuckled: “You think that Tang Tian will die?”
“Who won’t die?” Sima Xiang Shan declined to speak further.
“No one knows, for you to do this, aren’t you afraid of being too anxious.” Sima Xiao spoke with a bit of mockery, andasked suddenly: “What rumors have you heard?”
Sima Xiang Shan’s heart was shocked, but he was extremely shrewd, and smiled insincerely: “Did Scorpio Kingobtain any rumors?”
Sima Xiao could not help but once again reevaluate the crafty man standing in front of him, to be able to talk sofrankly with assurance in front of him and not reveal anything, even though he was not known, but he was not one tobe underestimated. ~I never thought that Tang Tian would have such a subordinate, they all have their ownrespective strengths.~
Sima Xiao knew that he would never be a part of Ursa Major Constellation, and wanting to obtain their trust wasextremely difficult, and the more he beat about the bush with the other party, the harder it would be for the otherparty to trust him. He decided to talk bluntly: “I am the Scorpio King, and am not planning to stay on this sideline. Ibelieve that we both agree to this point. I don’t believe that I alone can break out of this Sin Domain, and withoutTang Tian, none of us will be able to leave. And now that I have lost my strength, how am I a threat to you guys?”
“The danger about you has never been about your martial abilities.” Sima Xiang Shan laughed sinisterly, Sima XiangShan knew of the difference between them, the plans and trickeries implemented, Sima Xiao was able to shoot tothe position of Scorpio King with the help of the Clan Union power.
Sima Xiao laughed, he knew that his words was of some use.
“Crazy Tang is not dead.” Sima Xiang Shan suddenly said.
Sima Xiao’s attention was roused: “That is for sure, I have never thought that he would die so easily here. But whereis he now?”
Sima Xiang Shan looked at him: “This, I cannot say.”
Sima Xiao did not get angry, but continued to pursue: “What are your plans?”
“Save ourselves.” Sima Xiang Shan waved his hand at Sima Xiao and said sneakily: “We are all crude people, and noneof us are good at tricks, I never expected to meet you, who is an expert at this, so help us plot something.”
Sima Xiao did not know whether to laugh or cry, he had not met anyone for a long time who would dare use such afrivolous tone to talk to him.
But he was a realistic man, he knew that squabbling over all the petty things and not think of the big picture was adefinite way to die. As an ambitious and ruthless man, he knew how to judge the hours and gauge the situationextremely well, and was always more outstanding than others.
He knew it was time for him to perform. If he did not show his usefulness, he would not be valuable at all, and hesuspected that Sima Xiang Shan might kill him.
During the period of being imprisoned, he had obtained the trust of the Li Family, and was rather familiar with thesituation in Bright Light City. As to how to take advantage of a crisis and obtaining personal gain, it was somethinghe did routinely and was an expert. If it was only him, it would be difficult to achieve much, but matching with SimaXiang Shan, the situation could be said to be different. The Li Family who was supporting him, along with the MoFamily who was supporting Sima Xiang Shan, were the number one and number two families of Bright Light City.
“Since you want to play, we should play it big.” Sima Xiao revealed a smile, his smile was extremely harmless, and hestarted to reveal his plans.
The more Sima Xiang Shan listened, the more surprised he was, ~This man is truly crafty.~
He had to admit, it was an ingenious plan, there were no flaws in it at all. Sima Xiao had used the borrowed strengthto defeat others, driving a wedge between ties, and had used his tools to their maximum. Sima Xiang Shan believedthat as long as the plan was implemented, the entire Bright Light City would plunge into chaos. No one would haveever thought that the hands in the shadows would actually be the two of them.
~At that time….~
Sima Xiang Shan squinted his eyes, ~Bright Light City has 700 Null Division Members.~
He licked his lips.
Qin Zhen sent off his guests with a face of smile, he had a huge stature, a skinny face and a sharp gaze, although hewas smiling, but it would still make others tremble.
After he returned, the smile on his face disappeared, all the servants and maids around did not dare to make asound.
Qin Zi Zhen was dead, the entire Archer Unit was destroyed, Wei Han and Mu Ze was dead, The Xue Family hadchosen to rely on Ghost Face Mask and escaped to Echo Hill Castle, these consecutive news had plunged his faceinto darkness. Ghost Face Mask’s strength far exceeded his expectations.
The Qin Family had suffered greatly, if he did not know that the Lu Family had already sent Lu Tian Wen, Qin Zhenhimself would already have returned back to Purple Cuckoo City.
He calmed down, knowing Lu Tian Wen had made his move, and focused on forming relationships and engaging withothers. The Lu Family did not seem to care about him purchasing the Null Division Prisoners from them, if not, hewould never have had the chance. He knew that the Lu Family’s focus was on the Xue Family, and knew that theysaw something in the Xue Family, but after so many years, he had never found the secret of the Xu Family, and thusdecided to sell them off.
~This price ain’t bad, to still be able to attract the attention of the Lu Family.~
He had to grasp the time, the moment the Lu Family reconsidered, he himself would not be able to obtain the NullDivision Prisoners from the other families, and that was the reason for him not returning to the Qin Family.
But, the other families were no fools either, all of them were clearly aware of the Null Division prisoners’ value, andbefore he made a reasonable offer, no one would sell them. That made all the negotiations extremely difficult, butQin Zhen still made quite a harvest.
He had negotiated with three families, although the price he had to pay would hollow out the Qin Family’sproperties, but to Qin Zhen, it was all worth it.
Many people were secretly mocking him, and think that his fervent purchase of Null Division Members was useless,as he would not be able to absorb them.
All the Null Division Members were known for being untameable and rampant, and other than the extreme minoritythat chose to defect themselves, no one else were able to subdue them.
Everyone thought that the Qin Family did not have the ability to absorb the Null Division Members, and would onlyexplode in his own face.
Thinking about that, Qin Zhen’s face revealed a sneer.
No one knew that he had a unique method to allow the prisoners to listen to him obediently, and he was not worriedabout them being rampant. He had not touched any one of the prisoners yet, because he wanted to give off a falseimpression that he was a gambler and did not care about the consequences. Only from that will others think that hewas crazy, and sell the prisoners to him.
Right at that moment, an outburst came from the outside.
Zong Zheng Yan Mei, who was bruised and tattered and torn, barged in: “Master, the Four families have formed analliance and ambushed us….”
Before he could even finish speaking, his pale face fell flat on the floor, and ceased to breath anymore.
Clang, Qin Zhen’s face was blank white as he dropped the teacup in his hand.
