Chapter 683 – Clash of Lightning (1)
In the air above the main Spiritual Peak, several Void God Realm Emperors faced each other silently. Surges of Divine Sense gathered here and communicated with each other.
The Wind Lightning Emperor stole the essence of many Lightning techniques from the Ten Thousand Lightning Sect and then created his own Wind Lightning style from them…. only now did Zhao Feng know the truth.
Dozens of millennia ago, the Wind Lightning Emperor’s attitude was horrible, and he stole a lot of things. The Divine Senses present didn’t argue. Even the Purple Saint Partial Spirit said nothing. That was simply reality.
No wonder the Ten Thousand Lightning Sect dared to come here. As the situation within the True Martial Sacred Land was currently balanced, reason had priority. Furthermore, the Dark Lightning Emperor and company had the support of the Thousand Darkness Clan behind them.
What made it even more complicated was that Duanmu Qing was about to leave the clan, which meant that the Mystic True Sacred Clan’s support toward him definitely wasn’t as strong as before.
What a cunning plan! Zhao Feng’s heart went cold, but at the same time, a question arose – what benefits did the Ten Thousand Lightning Sect get out of this?
“Just say what you want, otherwise, harassing my disciple will make me your foe,” Duanmu Qing snickered coldly as he started to release his Magnificent Power.
“Of course we don’t want to be Emperor Duanmu’s enemy,” the female in multi-colored lightning smiled, and Zhao Feng’s eyes flashed. As he thought, they had a purpose. No matter what, Zhao Feng was a Core disciple of a three-star superpower, and he had an Emperor as a master.
Even the Ten Thousand Lightning Sect didn’t want to offend a Void God Realm Emperor for no reason.
“As long as Zhao Feng hands over the Wind Lightning Inheritance and the Demigod’s head, we’ll let this go. How does that sound?” the dark-faced elder said, and the experts from the Mystic True Sacred Clan all understood – the Ten Thousand Lightning Sect’s true goal was the Demigod’s head.
So that’s it. Zhao Feng knew clearly; the head was a priceless treasure for the Ten Thousand Lightning Sect, while the Wind Lightning Inheritance had peak speed and offense. These two items were very attractive to the Ten Thousand Lightning Sect.
“We can resolve this peacefully, otherwise the Ten Thousand Lightning Sect will have to stand against the Mystic True Sacred Clan,” the Dark Lightning Emperor said coldly, and the expressions of some Kings and Emperors from the Mystic True Sacred Clan changed dramatically.
“The Ten Thousand Lightning Sect dares to threaten us with this…?” Emperor Gu Luo and Mi Kong looked at each other, and their hearts dropped.
In the True Martial Sacred Land, the Ten Thousand Lightning Sect was the strongest two-star sect, and it was the most likely to become a three-star superpower. However, the Ten Thousand Lightning Sect had always been neutral, and it was the core of an alliance of some two-star forces. If the Ten Thousand Lightning Sect swayed toward the Thousand Darkness Sacred Clan, that would be extremely bad for the True Martial Sacred Clan.
At this moment in time, the upper echelon of the Mystic True Sacred Clan broke out into discussion.
“Ridiculous!” a cold voice suddenly appeared.
A purple-haired youth appeared below Emperor Duanmu and company.
“Zhao Feng’s come out!” many Divine Senses and gazes landed on this cold youth.
“Brat, what do you have to say?” the Dark Lightning Emperor snickered and released his chaotic Lightning power.
Zhao Feng knew that he would have no chance of resistance against an Emperor. Emperors were at the peak of the Void God Realm. There was a great difference between them and Kings.
“Firstly, the Wind Lightning Emperor is already dead. His enmity with the Ten Thousand Lightning Sect from back then has dissolved. I’m not related to him in any way,” Zhao Feng acted as if he wasn’t a part of it.
If Zhao Feng was the Wind Lightning Emperor’s disciple or son, then it would be different. However, he was Duanmu Qing’s disciple.
“Atrocious!” the dark-faced Emperor roared, “The Lightning inheritance you cultivate belongs to the Ten Thousand Lightning Sect, so the Ten Thousand Lightning Sect has the right to take it back!”
“Wrong!” Zhao Feng yelled back.
Everyone present paused.
“The Lightning Inheritance that the Wind Lightning Emperor cultivated wasn’t purely the Dao of Lightning. His inheritance has already exceeded the Ten Thousand Lightning Sect,” Zhao Feng said emotionlessly.
Exceeded the Ten Thousand Lightning Sect.
The eyes of Emperor Duanmu and company lit up. That’s right, and that point was very important. Every skill in the world had similarities. If the Wind Lightning Inheritance had exceeded the Ten Thousand Lightning Sect’s skills, then it was no longer related to the Ten Thousand Lightning Sect.
“That’s right, the Wind Lightning Inheritance isn’t just a pure Dao of Lightning anymore.”
“Although the Wind Lightning Emperor was horrible, he did create his own force.”
The Divine Senses in the air interacted.
“Hmph!” Zhao Feng’s face was full of mockery, “The Wind Lightning Emperor surpassed his martial ancestors and merged the Dao of Lightning and the Dao of Wind together, becoming the fastest Emperor.”
Surpassed his martial ancestors. Zhao Feng placed great emphasis on that.
“Brat…!” the three Emperors in the air were so angry that they started to shake and grind their teeth, but this was reality. Thinking back, none of the experts from the Ten Thousand Lightning Sect were able to handle the Wind Lightning Emperor. After the Wind Lightning Emperor became an Emperor, the Ten Thousand Lightning Sect could only return unwillingly. This part of history was a great humiliation.
“The Ten Thousand Lightning Sect is full of tricks, and they’re just using such an excuse to try to get the Demigod’s head and the Wind Lightning Inheritance,” Zhao Feng’s tone became louder, and at the end, the expressions of the three Emperors were ugly.
“The Ten Thousand Lightning Sect is just a bunch of shameless bastards that want to steal from others!”
Emperor Duanmu and several other Kings and Emperors started to laugh.
The little thieving cat appeared and waved a white flag and danced around.
“Brat, don’t you dare try to accuse us!” the voices of the three Emperors started to tremble and their expressions were extremely ugly. They wanted to release their anger, but merely Duanmu Qing and company were enough to stop them. This was the Mystic True Sacred Clan’s territory; even if they had ten thousand more guts, they wouldn’t dare to attack here.
“You three better scram,” Duanmu Qing gently waved his sleeve.
It wasn’t a matter of reason anymore since both sides had their perspectives.
However, how could the three Emperors from the Ten Thousand Lightning Sect leave so easily when they had planned for such a long time? The Dark Lightning Emperor and the other two started to discuss in private with ugly expressions.
“Although I can challenge Duanmu Qing, his Wood techniques counter us,” the Dark Lightning Emperor said.
“Why not do this…?”
The three soon had a plan.
A couple breath later:
“Brat, you said that the Wind Lightning Emperor surpassed his martial ancestors and the Ten Thousand Lightning Sect,” the female said.
“That’s right,” Zhao Feng replied without hesitation. That was the critical point of his argument.
“Then let us see if the Wind Lightning Inheritance has indeed exceeded the Ten Thousand Lightning Sect’s skills,” a smile appeared on the female’s face.
“Wait, he’s just a junior. If you want to fight, I’m here,” Duanmu Qing said.
The three Emperors shook their heads. They obviously wouldn’t challenge Duanmu Qing. Duanmu Qing was an elite Emperor, and he cultivated the Dao of Wood, which perfectly countered Lightning.
“Why don’t we let the number one genius of our sect, Lei Zhen, face Zhao Feng? That way, he’ll be able to prove whether what he says is true or not,” the Dark Lightning Emperor slowly said. They were Void God Realm Emperors, so it wouldn’t be right if they were the ones to spar against a junior who was only twenty-something years old.
“En, that’s a good idea.”
“Since both sides are arguing, let them use their strongest geniuses to decide the victor.”
The Divine Senses present approved. They were the Kings and Emperors all across the Sacred Land, and they obviously wouldn’t decline a good show.
“Zhao Feng, what do you say?” Duanmu Qing asked.
“Sure,” Zhao Feng nodded his head.
Seeing Zhao Feng nod his head, the mouths of the Dark Lightning Emperor and company curled upwards into a smug smile.
A tall, barefoot male with a large sword arrived at the Mystic True Sacred Clan.
“Lei Zhen,” Zhao Feng wasn’t surprised to see him.
Lei Zhen cultivated the Five-Elemental Ten Thousand Lightning Technique, and he had a Lightning Spiritual Body that was able to counter most Lightning skills in the world.
“He has become stronger,” some Core disciples looked over at Lei Zhen with wariness.
“Zhao Feng, you’re only allowed to use the Wind Lightning Inheritance in this fight. Winning by any other method doesn’t count,” the female smiled and said.
“That isn’t fair!” Duanmu Qing’s expression changed dramatically.
If those were the rules, Zhao Feng wasn’t allowed to use his eye-bloodline or any of his Soul techniques. The Wind Lightning Inheritance would just be absorbed by Lei Zhen’s Lightning Spiritual Body, so how was Zhao Feng even supposed to fight?
“You need to prove that the Wind Lightning Inheritance does indeed surpass the Ten Thousand Lightning Sect’s skills, which means you have to do it this way,” the Dark Lightning Emperor snickered coldly.
Hearing that, no one could say anything. They were fighting about whether the Wind Lightning Inheritance exceeded the Ten Thousand Lightning Sect or not. If Zhao Feng used other methods, it wouldn’t prove anything.
“Hehe, furthermore, you must defeat Lei Zhen. If it’s a draw, that can’t prove that the Wind Lightning Inheritance surpasses the Ten Thousand Lightning Sect,” the dark-faced Emperor smiled cunningly as he emphasized “surpass.”
Ahh!? The Divine Senses present were stunned. The Ten Thousand Lightning Sect was just too shameless.
The biggest advantage of the Wind Lightning Inheritance was its speed. Even if Zhao Feng wasn’t able to take care of Lei Zhen’s Lightning Spiritual Body, he still had a chance to tie by using his speed, but it seemed like the Ten Thousand Lightning Sect was prepared for that.
“Our requirements are reasonable. If it wasn’t like this, how would one prove that the Wind Lightning Inheritance truly exceeds the Ten Thousand Lightning Sect?” the expressions of the three Emperors were smug.
Zhao Feng was also speechless. These three Emperors were even more cunning than a fox.
“Zhao Feng, if you lose or draw, you need to hand over the Demigod’s head and the Wind Lightning Inheritance,” the Dark Lightning Emperor said.
“Hehe… and what if I win?” Zhao Feng laughed as he emphasized “what if.”
The three Emperors paused. They didn’t think that Zhao Feng still had a possibility of winning by restricting him so much.
“How about… if I win, you give me the Five-Elemental Ten Thousand Lightning Technique?”
