The arrival of Qing Tianhou shocked everyone on the scene. Even powerful devils were also shocked by this imposing might.
Ye Chuan suddenly took out a lot of crystals and arrange them into a circle with everyone in it, then using a technique, he quickly laid out a simple Dragon Trapping Formation.
This powerful formation could seal, suppress and besiege formidable enemies, but it could also be used for restraining and blocking one's energy fluctuation and aura, helping one to quietly lurk in the surrounding.
Most of the average people only knew using this ancient formation forcibly, they know the hows but not the whys. As for Ye Chuan who once was Heaven Concealing Great Sage, he was different, it was not difficult for him to lay out a simple formation in reverse.
The disciples of Thunderbolt Sect suddenly had a marvelous feeling in their heart, and when they opened their eyes, they saw that a circular ripple had appeared in the midst of grey mist all around, making the figure of numerous cultivators gathered around that ancient grave seemed somewhat twisted. They felt like they were in a completely different world from those people and watching them through a looking gla.s.s.
Taishang Elder truly was Taishang Elder, just his casual move was extraordinary!
The disciples were shocked and understood how powerful Ye Chuan was again. Now, they were even more certain that he was the legendary Taishang Elder Venerable Thunderbolt of Thunderbolt Sect, and their heart slowly relaxed as even though more and more devils were gathered outside, with their Taishang Elder beside them, was there anyone they needed to fear?
"Without my instruction, no one is allowed to walk out of this circle." Ye Chuan instructed in a low voice. The disciples of Thunderbolt Sect had relaxed, but he didn't dare to be careless.
This was just a simplified Dragon Trapping Formation, it was just able to display a bit of its true power. This formation could easily conceal them from ordinary overseas loose cultivators and devils, but with just this formation, it was hard to hide from Qing Tianhou. If Qing Tianhou carefully scanned around, then he might be able to notice them.
Seeing the numbers of loose cultivators and devils gathered around this ancient grave was increasing, Ye Chuan was on guard. He didn't dare to easily expose himself as he instinctively felt danger. But, he had not expected to see Qing Tianhou coming here in person. Looking at this most formidable enemy since his rebirth, he was prepared to escape at any time. He didn't dare to be careless. He just hid in the dense mist and watched.
After refining Qingtian Wardrun, Ye Chuan had condensed the tenth Heaven Swallowing Talisman and also broken through to Rank 6 Daoist Master realm. If he encountered a Rank 7 Daoist Master realm expert or even a peak Daoist Master realm expert, then even without the a.s.sistance of Old Demon of Mount Yin and others, he might not necessarily lose. But, facing this Half Sage realm heaven-defying expert Qing Tianhou, even if he made a sneak attack, he didn't have any certainty to win.
Outside, the complexion of loose cultivators and devils was solemn. With the arrival of Qing Tianhou, all of them sensed danger and no one dared to make move easily. Only the old devil Overlying Islands Sanren happily stepped forward to welcome.
"Zhong Moli pays respect to Lord Hou!"
The old devil walked to the front of Qing Tianhou and greeted respectfully while bowing.
In the past, this old devil, who called himself old grandfather even in front of similar peak Daoist Master realm experts, announced his full name and greeted respectfully as a servant in front of this seemingly young Qing Tianhou.
"Overlying Island Sanren, when did this old devil sought refuge with Qing Tianhou?"
"This old fellow, he truly is more cunning than a thousand years old fox. He first went to seek refuge with a powerful backer!"
People talked in whispers and looked at Overlying Island Sanren with surprise, disdain and also jealousy.
In the Mainland World, the infamous name of Qing Tianhou had already spread far and wide. In the Overseas World, there originally were not many people who knew him, but after the battle between him and State Teacher Jiang Tunsheng in Bellowing Waves Island, then cooperating to rip the s.p.a.ce to open a pa.s.sage to Lost City, the racial holy land of Sea Demon Clan, his strength was deeply inscribed in the mind of people. Thus, these ferocious devils didn't even have a thought to resist upon seeing Qing Tianhou as they knew that they were not his opponent.
"Zhong Moli, did you suddenly summoned this Lord Hou for this grave?" Qing Tianhou asked with a cold voice.
"Lord Hou, this is not an ordinary grave, rather a grave of Great Monarch. That loose cultivator has obtained the fragment stone stele where ancient words 'Great Monarch Sea Waves' were carved. It is very likely that the true Lost City with origin energy and the racial sacred item is sealed inside." Outlying Island Sanren hastily replied.
After he was forced to withdraw by Ye Chuan pretending to be Taishang Elder of Thunderbolt Sect, he accidentally encountered a few famous great devils. He followed them and arrived at this ancient grave, then sensing the fluctuation of this ancient grave's restriction, he immediately knew that this grave was not simple and crushed the message talisman to inform Qing Tianhou. Sure enough, his premonition was correct. This ancient grave was different from other graves, it was the grave of Great Monarch.
"Oh, Great Monarch?"
The eyes of Qing Tianhou shone with interest and he suddenly grabbed the empty void, capturing a loose cultivator not far away who had obtained the stone stele. Then a cold light flashed and the head of that loose cultivator fell to the ground. Now, the stone stele fell into the hands of Qing Tianhou.
The loose cultivators and devils gathered around this ancient grave inhaled a cold air in fear.
This unfortunate loose cultivator was famous in nearby sea areas. His cultivation base was not any inferior to Outlying Islands Sanren, otherwise, he couldn't have seized that stone stele. A grand peak Daoist Master realm expert unexpectedly didn't even have time to react before he was beheaded. He wasn't even able to scream. What kind of realm had this Qing Tianhou reached? What kind of evil spirit was he?
Originally, there were some loose cultivators and devil who still had thoughts on that stone stele, but now, they quickly retreated, they didn't dare to have any extravagant hopes. There were also many people who turned around and left without saying a word. With Qing Tianhou, this evil spirit here, there was no chance for other people to obtain the treasures inside this grave of Great Monarch.
Outlying Island Sanren was also nervous, like being close to the sovereign could be as perilous as lying with a tiger, if he was not attentive enough when serving, then he might also lose his head. Not to mention his complexion was stretched taut, upon careful examination, one could see that he was also trembling. His fear towards Qing Tianhou was not any weaker than the fear felt by these loose cultivators and devils.
"Great…… Monarch…… Sea……. Waves, good, this name is good, it's a pity that he has already died, otherwise, he would have experienced this Lord Hou's Qingtian Halberd, hahahaha……"
Qing Tianhou crushed the fragment stone stele into pieces. He then roared with laughter and walked over to the tomb pa.s.sage of this ancient grave. Inside the grave, one could feel the fluctuation of ancient restriction. This fluctuation was strange and ghastly, even peak Daoist Master realm experts felt fear, but Qing Tianhou was indifferent, in addition, he walked faster and faster.
"Lord……, Lord Hou, it seems like there is an issue with my Ancient Avatar Technique, there is a faint tingling pain in my qimen acupoint, can you help me examine?"
Outlying Islands Sanren suddenly stepped forward and bracing himself, he lowered his head and meekly requested.
After he was forced to retreat by Ye Chuan, the more he thought the more restless he became. He understood that he had truly walked the wrong path in his cultivation. According to Ye Chuan, there was a hope to cure this tingling pain, but if he continued to cultivate and ignore this issue, then it would be beyond remedy. In the need, he wouldn't achieve success in his cultivation, he might lose his life!
Feeling uncomfortable, Outlying Islands Sanren immediately thought of Qing Tianhou who he had just gotten as a backer, and was eagerly waiting to request him to cure him.Report broken chapters
