Nine Star Hegemon Body Art - Chapter 1956 I’ll Defeat You in One Move
Long Chen was covered in blood, and even his hair had some blood on it. Under the light of his divine ring, he was like a devil god that had just charged out of hell.
One man and one saber, slowly walking forward. Countless Corrupt experts closed the path behind him. They followed him from behind, terrified.
Long Chen had charged his way in here. All those who had blocked him on the way had been killed. The Corrupt experts near the entrance of the Heavenly Evil Region had eventually been too terrified to try blocking him. They had retreated, simply following behind him. The Corrupt path might be famed for their viciousness, but they had never seen someone as vicious as this.
Xie Wentian smiled upon seeing Long Chen. He hadn’t really expected Long Chen to come.
When Heavenly Fate Island had told him to spread the word about the execution to bait Long Chen into coming, he had felt it to be stupid. It was clearly a trap. Only an idiot would come. But this idiot called Long Chen had really come.
Xie Luo was also smiling, very delightedly at that. He knew that Long Chen wouldn’t be able to leave now that he had come. In the future, there would be no Long Chen in this world.
The expressionless Leng Yueyan finally smiled. It was like a flower blooming. But at the same time, her sapphire eyes became wet. Pearl-like tears dripped down her face one by one.
Everyone was deathly silent. Only the sound of Long Chen’s footsteps resounded through the air.
However, behind those footsteps was a faint sound of blood dripping. Long Chen’s walk was like a sorrowful overture. Even in the face of death, he refused to stop walking.
Long Chen didn’t look at Xie Luo or Xie Wentian. He didn’t even look at the mass of Corrupt experts present. In his gaze was only the women bound to the wooden pillar.
“This is the second time I’ve seen you cry.” Long Chen walked straight over to Leng Yueyan. He reached out and wiped away her tears.
Leng Yueyan smiled. There was an indescribable emotion in her eyes. “You are the first man to see me cry ever since I started cultivating.”
“Oh? Then I’m honored. At first I didn’t know if this was really worth it, but hearing that, I feel like it is worth it.” Long Chen smiled.
Leng Yueyan shook her head. “Do you know how stupid you are? Now that you’ve come, you won’t be able to leave. They’ve already sealed the Heavenly Evil Region. No matter how many reinforcements you call, they won’t be able to break the barrier to this world. You will definitely die.”
“That’s alright. Don’t I have you to accompany me? With the Devil Empress by me, even the Yellow Springs won’t feel lonely. It might even be a marvelous sight. Our enmities and favors have left us entangled. This result is good. If you could protect me once, I can protect you for a lifetime.”
Hearing that, Leng Yueyan’s eyes once more got wet. Long Chen had come here despite knowing he was sending himself to his death.
Perhaps the only one in this world who could actually care about Leng Yueyan and actually sacrifice their life for her was Long Chen.
Suddenly, clapping rang out. Xie Luo said, “What a pair of emotional lovers. Even I’m moved. How about this? Long Chen, I’ll give you a chance. We’ll have a one-on-one battle. If you beat me, I’ll release the two of you. If you lose, you have to hand over all your secrets, and in return, I will make sure that the two of your corpses aren’t defiled. How’s that?”
Xie Luo’s eyes were shining. He had already advanced to the third Heavenstage of Life Star. The Corrupt path’s resources had all been concentrated on him. Hence, the current Xie Luo gave Long Chen a very dangerous feeling.
In truth, the one who would benefit the most from Leng Yueyan’s execution was Xie Luo. Through this special sacrifice, the Corrupt God would bestow Leng Yueyan’s divine abilities to him.
Then he would possess her monstrous death energy. That was a terrifying power.
This challenge was not out of the goodness of his heart. He wanted to beat Long Chen himself, wiping away his previous disgrace and making sure that Huo Lieyun and True Immortal Jiaoqi wouldn’t have the same chance. Although they were called allies, once their enemies were eliminated, they would become enemies again. If Huo Lieyun and True Immortal Jiaoqi didn’t manage to defeat Long Chen, it would leave a blemish on their Dao-hearts, which would very likely slow down how quickly they advanced to Netherpassage. Then Xie Luo would have an immense advantage.
As Xie Wentian’s son, Xie Luo was quite crafty. He said that he would release the two of them if he won, but that only represented himself, not the Corrupt path. This promise was meaningless.
More importantly, he wanted to capture Long Chen alive. Everyone on the continent hoped to know Long Chen’s secrets.
The Dragonblood Legion was too terrifying. Their talent should have made them nothing more than cannon fodder, but Long Chen had turned them into the world’s number one legion. If there was no secret behind this, well, no one would believe that.
The reason for Pill Valley’s enmity with Long Chen was mostly because of their greed for his secrets. For Long Chen to send himself here, he was practically gifting his secrets to the Corrupt path.
If they weren’t afraid of Long Chen using some secret art to kill himself and destroy his secrets, they would have long since attacked.
Glancing at Xie Luo, Long Chen smiled coldly. He was far too immature to play schemes with him. Long Chen saw through his intentions instantly.
He ignored him and turned back to Leng Yueyan. He gently brushed back her hair. He messaged her, “How can I save you?”
Leng Yueyan shook her head. “You can’t save me. This pillar contains the faith energy of the Corrupt path. No power can break it. Once the ceremony begins, I will be sacrificed. After that, divine energy will come down here, and everything will be over. Long Chen, thank you. You were the one who showed me that there could still be someone who loved me in this world. I know that if you go all-out, then with your saber, you have a chance to tear through space and leave here. Leave while you can. If you exhaust yourself, you won’t have a chance.”
“I won’t leave you. We either leave together or die together. No one can change this. Since I can’t beat this altar, then I’ll have to find some other way. There’s always some solution,” said Long Chen. Turning to Xie Luo, he said, “Don’t you think your words are crap? Once you’re defeated by me, you won’t live up to your own promise.”
“Long Chen, don’t throw mud on my name in an attempt to anger me. I’ve always followed through with my word. It’s just that you don’t have the ability to defeat me,” said Xie Luo.
“Long Chen, don’t! Once you start fighting, you won’t have the energy to leave!” shouted Leng Yueyan.
“Since I’ve come, I never had any intention of leaving by myself. Either we leave together, or… we die together!”
Five stars lit up in Long Chen’s eyes. His 108,000 stars activated, unleashing endless energy. He attacked Xie Luo with his saber.
“He really is a hateful and loveable fellow… well, it’s fine…” Leng Yueyan muttered to herself upon seeing Long Chen’s back.
Xie Luo raised a hand, and a snake-head spear appeared. The entire spear twisted and turned. It looked to be covered in rust or corrosion, but it unleashed an evil air. It struck like a viper.
“Corrupt God Possession!”
Xie Luo let out a cry, and a figure appeared in his manifestation. That figure was covered in black mist, but its body unleashed a sinister aura.
Xie Luo’s body became covered in black runes. The snake-head spear pierced toward Long Chen.
The two divine items clashed, unleashing surging qi waves that even pressured the Netherpassage experts present.
The two of them were actually equally matched. Xie Luo snorted. “Bring out the power you used yesterday. I want to defeat you in your peak state. Otherwise, you’ll die before I even use my world energy. That would be too boring.”
As expected, news of the battle yesterday had reached this place. Even his trump cards had been exposed.
“Fine. Let me see just how powerful your world energy is.” Long Chen took a deep breath. A dragon cry rang out through the world, shaking people’s souls. Cracks appeared on Long Chen’s body as white scales appeared irregularly across his skin.
He was unable to summon the complete Azure Dragon Battle Armor, but the power he suddenly unleashed shocked everyone. That dragon might was unstoppable.
“Hahaha, good, this is the only way to make things fun. Defeating you in this state is the only way to show that I, Xie Luo, am the strongest!”
Xie Luo laughed. His hair suddenly stood on end. The black runes on his body seemed to come to life, and they roved over his body. At the same time, the surrounding space exploded. An unprecedented energy raged through the air.
“My evil spirit energy is able to merge with my world energy. Today, I’ll make sure you’re convinced of your defeat!”
Xie Luo had a sinister smile. The snake-head spear suddenly rumbled and attacked. The void collapsed in every direction.
“I’ll defeat you in one move! Heaven Devouring Evil Spear!”
