Chapter 1063 – Arrival of a Sacred King
“Little thieving cat, I’ll leave the rest to you!” Zhao Feng’s voice sounded in the little thieving cat’s soul.
The little thieving cat waved the Shadow Kill Imperial Dagger in its paws and turned into a streak of dark silver light that flashed in an instant.
A cold glint sped through the members of the group. Almost everyone that hadn’t become a Sacred Lord yet was killed by the little thieving cat instantly.
A cold dagger then pierced through the Thirteenth Prince’s heart, and the Thirteenth Prince died just like that.
“Destroy the bodies!” Zhao Feng’s voice sounded once more before the golden eye in the sky slowly faded away.
The little thieving cat’s figure then disappeared after accomplishing everything.
Zhao Feng opened his eyes within the secret hall.
“He’s finally dead!”
Zhao Feng let out a long breath. No one would know how shocked Sacred Lord Black Iron and the Thirteenth Prince would’ve been if they knew Zhao Feng was still in the city. However, they would never know.
“I probably won’t be found out!”
Zhao Feng had used the Eye of Heaven to look over everything. There were no other groups within several dozen thousand miles, and no one from the Thirteenth Prince’s group managed to send out any information.
However, there was always the unexpected. Experts at the Heavenly Divine Realm might be able to find something, or divination masters like the Six Warlock Sage might be able to divine it. However, no one would know it was Zhao Feng that killed the Thirteenth Prince at least in the short term. Therefore, Zhao Feng needed to use this time to increase his strength.
Although Kun Yun had agreed to help Zhao Feng, it was partly because Kun Yun wasn’t confident he could kill Zhao Feng. If Zhao Feng continued to supply resources to Kun Yun but didn’t become any stronger himself, he believed that Kun Yun would still kill him in the end.
Therefore, the only way to survive and protect himself was to cultivate and become stronger.
Zhao Feng appeared in the Misty Spatial World, and some ancient rare resources appeared in his hand. Amongst them were Earth-elemental stones and herbs – spoils of war obtained after conquering the Earth Shattering Raging Bulls race.
The herbs and minerals within the Ancient Dream Realm helped Zhao Feng’s Earth of Wind Lightning dramatically. With the amount of resources Zhao Feng had already used, his Earth of Wind Lightning could have reached the early stages already, but Zhao Feng suppressed it in order to keep strengthening his Mystic Light Sacred Power. Although he wanted to increase his strength, he couldn’t rush it.
The little thieving cat soon returned and jumped into the Misty Spatial World.
The little thieving cat reported the mission to Zhao Feng and asked for its reward.
“You have become much stronger!” Zhao Feng said.
The little thieving cat had also used up a lot of resources, and Zhao Feng could see its evolution. The little thieving cat had no bottleneck; as long as it had resources, it could become stronger.
Since they had just taken over a stronghold, no action would be taken for a while. Therefore, Zhao Feng and the little thieving cat just stayed in the Misty Spatial World and used the extinct resources of the Ancient Dream Realm to cultivate and become stronger.
The duplication ability of the mysterious golden ball allowed Zhao Feng to continuously produce resources, but their effect would decrease after using it too much.
News of the Thirteenth Prince dying on the battlefield spread ten days later. A late-stage Mystic Light Realm Sacred Lord and several imperials personally went to the battlefield to find out what happened.
According to the members in the Thirteenth Prince’s area, the Thirteenth Prince had gone to the Ninth Prince’s area but never returned. In fact, the Thirteenth Prince’s group had been together with the Ninth Prince’s group before an accident befell the Thirteenth Prince. Therefore, the Ninth Prince’s group was the most suspicious.
However, Sacred Lord Gonghuang, an upper echelon of the Grand Imperial Hall, was present in the Ninth Prince’s group. This meant that it couldn’t have been the Ninth Prince’s group that killed the Thirteenth Prince.
Besides, everyone knew about the feud between Zhao Feng and the Thirteenth Prince. If Zhao Feng and Nan Gongsheng teamed up, they could easily wipe out the Thirteenth Prince’s group.
“On that day, Zhao Feng and Nan Gongsheng both stayed behind!” Sacred Lord Gonghuang said. He wasn’t protecting Zhao Feng or Nan Gongsheng, he was just speaking the truth.
“But Senior Kun Yun came by that day!” a peak Emperor in the group said in a quiet voice.
“Kun Yun….” Those that had come from the Lan Province War Hall gently murmured.
Kun Yun, who was once a Demigod, did indeed have the ability to kill early-stage Mystic Light Realm Sacred Lords rather easily, but why would he want to kill the Thirteenth Prince’s group?
The late-stage Mystic Light Realm Sacred Lord from the Lan Province War Hall and the imperials left the Ninth Prince’s city with no answer to their question. They continued to search for the culprit. Of course, they also couldn’t exclude the possibility that the Thirteenth Prince’s group may have killed by the non-humans.
Zhao Feng returned to his hall after the people from the Lan Province War Hall left and continued to cultivate. It was good that they hadn’t found anything. Zhao Feng was also too lazy to care about Kun Yun; he believed that nothing would happen to Kun Yun anyway.
“I didn’t think that brother Thirteenth Prince would be killed!” The Ninth Prince was stunned.
While this was good news to him, he also wanted to know who knew about the Thirteenth Prince’s tracks and managed to kill his entire group without even letting them send a message out.
News of the Thirteenth Prince’s group being massacred on the battlefield instantly spread throughout the lord dynasty and created discussions of every kind.
One had to know that the members of the Thirteenth Prince’s group were all upper echelon members or geniuses of big forces, and Sacred Lord Black Iron was one of the Elders of Nine Darkness Palace. The Thirteenth Prince himself had the most support from various forces amongst all the princes.
After the Sacred Emperor and Empress heard of this news, they were enraged and sent out many expert imperials to the front lines to find out what happened.
This meant that more and more strong people started to appear on the battlefield. The non-humans realized that the humans had suddenly increased their forces, and they did the same thing. They sent in more experts to the battlefield, and the war became more intense.
The upper echelon of the Lan Province War Hall also went to find Kun Yun, but they still didn’t come to a conclusion.
Kun Yun’s strength had increased due to the flesh of the Earth Shattering Raging Bull that Zhao Feng gave him, and he killed large numbers of enemies, enraging the non-humans.
At last, Sacred Kings finally appeared on the battlefield!
In the Ninth Prince’s stronghold, almost all of the human groups from before had gathered here.
“Continue pushing forward!”
Everyone started to enter the warzone. Zhao Feng and Zhao Yufei worked together while Duanmu Qing joined the Ninth Prince’s group and protected his safety. On the other hand, Nan Gongsheng worked alone.
The non-humans were prepared and sent over a late-stage Sacred Lord. This late-stage Sacred Lord met Nan Gongsheng, and they fought. In the end, the late-stage Mystic Light Realm Sacred Lord was defeated and ran away!
Zhao Feng and Nan Gongsheng’s war points instantly jumped up after they took over two strongholds. Nan Gongsheng’s war points rose to the top one thousand on the Lan Province War Board while Zhao Feng reached 3rd place.
Zhao Feng circulated the Ten Thousand Divine Thoughts Technique within the Misty Spatial World and started to multitask.
After several months of cultivation and large amounts of resources, his Five Elemental Wind Lightning Technique had consolidated itself at the early stages of the Earth of Wind Lightning.
The progress of his Soul Intent was relatively slow. After all, resources that helped the soul were extremely rare even in the Ancient Dream Realm.
Zhao Feng used the mysterious golden ball to continuously duplicate ancient herbs, such as the Spirit Gathering Soul Refining Grass, but its effect was drastically reduced after continuous consumption.
“If my Soul Intent reaches the late stages of the Mystic Light Realm, I might be able to try duplicating one of the replica God Slaying Arrows!” Zhao Feng analyzed.
Of course, he wasn’t entirely sure he could duplicate it, and the energy used up would make Zhao Feng weak if he could.
All in all, Zhao Feng had one short-term goal, and that was to become stronger until he could duplicate the substandard God Slaying Arrows.
The substandard God Slaying Arrows dealt terrifying damage to late-stage Sacred Lords, and they could even threaten Sacred Kings. Zhao Feng only had one more substandard God Slaying Arrow, and he couldn’t use it because, if he did, he wouldn’t be able to duplicate it in the future!
Zhao Feng suddenly felt a disturbance in the outside world and instantly left the Misty Spatial World.
A terrifying power of Intents and laws descended around him.
“This power…! Could it be a Sacred King!?” Zhao Feng immediately charged out with shock.
A Sacred King of the mermaid race was fighting against Nan Gongsheng, Zhao Yufei, and Sacred Lord Gonghuang.
This was the territory that the Ninth Prince had just taken over. There were many other groups here, and three other Sacred Lords were present apart from the Ninth Prince’s group. However, normal Sacred Lords weren’t able to join a fight against a Sacred King.
“I didn’t expect that we would attract a non-human Sacred King so quickly!”
Zhao Feng felt a solemn atmosphere.
The non-human in question was Sacred King Roaring Sky from the non-human war hall. Perhaps the non-humans had placed greater importance on the Ninth Prince’s group after Sacred Lord Myriad Forms and Sacred Lord Sky Trampler were defeated, and another non-human Sacred Lord had also been defeated by Nan Gongsheng earlier.
Alongside a wave of destructive power, Sacred Lord Gonghuang, Nan Gongsheng, and Zhao Yufei were defeated.
“Retreat! Immediately retreat!” Sacred Lord Gonghuang immediately ordered.
The difference between Sacred Lords and Sacred Kings was very big. It couldn’t be compared to the difference an early-stage Sacred Lord and a late-stage Sacred Lord. Even though Nan Gongsheng could defeat a late-stage Sacred Lord by himself, the three of them combined weren’t a match for Sacred King Roaring Sky.
“All of you, retreat!” the Ninth Prince immediately ordered. Just one thought from Sacred King Roaring Sky could kill anyone who wasn’t a Sacred Lord. Remaining behind was completely useless; they would just be walking to their own deaths.
Zhao Feng circulated the Sacred Lightning Body and flew over with his Lightning Wings Flying Technique.
“You guys retreat. We’ll stop him for now!” Zhao Feng said.
Sacred Lord Gonghuang and Zhao Yufei immediately nodded their heads. Sacred King Roaring Sky was faster than the group, so if they wanted to retreat, they would be retreating from a Sacred King. Someone had to stay behind and stall Sacred King Roaring Sky.
“You were too arrogant. That’s why the upper echelons sent me here to wipe out all the Sacred Lords present!” Sacred King Roaring Sky couldn’t help but snicker.
In reality, the non-humans treated the Ninth Prince’s warzone on the same level as Kun Yun not only because there were so many Sacred Lords. It was mainly because the inheritors of the Spiritual Race bloodline and power of the Evil God were present. Killing Zhao Yufei and Nan Gongsheng was the secret task that the upper echelons had given Sacred King Roaring Sky!
