Chapter 913: Sudden Changes
Translator: Exodus Tales Editor: Exodus Tales
With that many innate Deity Kings killed on the massive altar, the scene was beyond creepy.
The reason why they were considered dead was that they all had fatal wounds at the same spot on their bodies.
Just like Eight Barrens Deity King, there was a wound on their head, seemingly pierced through by something and took their lives right away, causing these immortal ones to depart from the world!
Previously, Zhong Yue and the others were too occupied by their intense battle but the “second”, Tai Feng who was a little slower and did not take part in the battle noticed this strange scene.
There were just too many innate Deity Kings that were killed here and the fall of the Dark Age was definitely related to this!
The innate Deity Kings that represented the strongest power in the Dark Age, lost majority of its rank here and even the ruler of the Dark Age lost his life here. Thus, the fall of the Dark Age and the rise of the postnate beings!
Weird rumblings came again, shaking the Daos in their body and their totem Daos into chaos.
Zhong Yue immediately realized that the rumblings came from the altar’s center but with that part entirely covered by the Dark Age’s ruler’s skeleton, he couldn’t see anything.
The massive altar was extremely suppressing and he had never ever seen such condensed dead essence in his life.
Even Hells were a little livelier than this altar; while the Hell Reincarnations gathered dead souls, it was also a place for reincarnation, which had both the essences of life and death for the dead souls to reborn into a new life.
Here, however, the surroundings were completely inundated with the air of death, the death of the many innate Deity Kings, the Dark Age’s ruler, the heaven and earth’s Dao, heaven and earth itself and the universe.
There was not even a single iota of life here.
However, Tai Feng, Long Zhi, and the others were much more attracted to the innate Deity Kings’ Dao skeletons.
In their skeleton arms were the weapons they all forged before their deaths, weapons that acted as a symbol for their position and they were all weapons with unimaginable strength!
Innate Deity Kings were not Heavenly Monarchs, but their strength were definitely no weaker and that included their weapons too.
Each type of innate divine weapons represented an innate Dao and through yielding them, one would be bestowed with the power of a Deity King!
And right now, this place was filled with ownerless innate divine weapons, just waiting for collection.
This was what attracted them most!
Zhong Yue, on the other hand, suddenly smiled, “Ladies and gentlemen, the many precious items here are enough for the rest of your lives so I think that there is no need to chase me to death just for the herb.”
“But isn’t Mister Yi still alive?”
Tai Feng retracted his vision, looked at Zhong Yue and said calmly, “The precious items here, are definitely going to be ours but the saint herb is much more important. While the innate divine weapons can bestow us with an innate Deity Kings’ strength, that strength would not be our own power. Without the weapon, we would still be the same as before, but with the saint herb, it’s not the same.”
Zhong Yue’s heart thumped; the saint herb that Bi and An turned into was just way too alluring that these guys just wouldn’t want to let go even in the case of a vast wealth of other treasures.
This job is really tough….
Zhong Yue took in a deep breath and fire flickered in his eyes. Even if techniques and arts couldn’t be used here, he still didn’t fear!
He was confident that he could put up a tough fight but that was if he was not surrounded by his enemies!
Yet, the situation was a little difficult right now for he was surrounded. Behind him was the bird body celestial being and Nu Fang, in front him was Tai Feng and Long Zhi and they made escaping seem more like a dream to him right now.
The innate flesh wings! Maybe I can escape from them through the wings!
Zhong Yue looked around as he thought. The innate flesh wings were something he learned from the ancient ship’s wings but in order to visualize them, he first had to cast them.
But given the messed up heaven and earth Dao here, not only were techniques uncastable, he might even risk having the Daos in his body to collapse if he cast any techniques.
Fortunately for him, the innate flesh wings were half technique and half flesh, hence, the injuries caused by forcefully casting innate flesh wings would be slightly lighter.
“Mo he xiu li sa po he….” chanted Zhong Yue slowly.
“What did you say?” asked a confused Tai Feng.
Zhong Yue kept Tai Feng’s question hanging, he continued chanting the obscure language as he tried to cast innate flesh wings and see if it was able to be cast.
Just as he started chanting, Zhong Yue suddenly felt his heart grabbed onto by something before he clearly felt a pair of eyes were looking at him.
He was very familiar to the feeling the pair of eyes gave him and goosebumps were all over him.
Back then in Heaven Suppressing Place when Goddess Shen Hou slammed the innate Deity Kings’ projections down, Zhong Yue too, felt a gaze landed onto him from the palace and now, he was gazed upon by the same stare!
But now, he had no choice but to continue chanting because he already felt the space Dao in his body vibrating slowly. Though it was still being affected by the weird rumblings, the innate flesh wings were still castable.
“Whatever, you won’t be able to run no matter what you say.”
Tai Feng walked towards the Light Water Bottle, hugged onto it as he tried to keep the Light Water Bottle away into his Yuan Shen Secret Realms as he said, “Third sister, fourth and fifth brother, catch him and we will share the herb!”
Long Zhi shrieked, leaped around quickly and from the hands of Eight Barren Deity King, she leaped towards Zhong Yue while her tails swung around in mid-air!
At the same time, the bird body celestial being flapped his wings, flying toward Zhong Yue quickly and attacking him with the feather blades from bottom to top!
Nu Fang, on the other hand, ran quickly on the ground and closed in with unmatchable speed to Zhong Yue’s eyes!
Meanwhile, inches by inches, Tai Feng slowly lifted the Light Water Bottle from Eight Barren Deity King’s hand and once completely lifted up, he could place it into his Yuan Shen secret realms and make it his own.
Zhong Yue’s speed heightened and gradually peaked; the totem Dao in his body was very active but without having learned techniques like the [Skills of Diction], he was not able to pull the [Skills of Diction] off like Feng Wuji.
Apart from that, with the speed he chanted, he was not going to pronounce the ‘Yu’ word in the innate godly language in time before being engulfed by the four Imperial Emperors’ joint attacks.
But it was at this moment, a voice sounded from the silent altar.
Far away, the skeleton of the innate Deity Kings that commanded the dimension suddenly moved; its mouth moved and from there came the rumbling Dao language, “Mo he xiu li sa po he, xu he zhu se sa po he…”
As compared to Zhong Yue’s, this chanting speed was terrifyingly smooth and quick. The sensation it gave off was one of power!
When the voice sounded, Long Zhi, Nu Fang, and the bird body celestial being who were all charging towards him stopped their advancement immediately and looked towards the innate Deity Kings’ skeleton in shock.
“…Eight Barren Deity King!”
On the other hand, Tai Feng was already halfway through removing the Light Water Bottle but before he could completely remove it, the Light Water Bottle was dragged backward by an enormous power and prevented him from removing the Light Water Bottle.
“The hand… Eight Barren Deity King’s hand!”
He was devoured by fear upon finding Eight Barren Deity King’s skeleton hand moved and grabbed the Light Water Bottle firmly!
And when Tai Feng looked around in fear, he was even more shocked and scared for it wasn’t only just this hand, but the other skeleton arms of Eight Barren Deity King were also moving around!:
“An po tuo….”
Eight Barren Deity King’s massive skulls opened their mouth and chanted incredibly loudly. His eight heads chanted different Dao language that was entirely different from Zhong Yue’s and he was chanting in eight types of innate godly language!
At the same time, at the other corners of the altar, the skeletons of the many Dark Age’s innate Deity Kings opened their mouth, chanted loudly in different Dao language, a power that they mastered before their death!
From extremely vague, the chantings gradually became loud and clear but not before they merged into one and unleashed terrifying power that pressured the Imperial Emperors greatly.
“Mister Yi, what did you do?”
With a pale face, Long Zhi asked and she no longer called Zhong Yue a brat but Mister.
“I don’t care what you are up to but you better stop it at once!” said Long Zhi seriously.
Zhong Yue, however, was as clueless as they were and he did not know what was happening.
Whatever was happening right now was very much like what happened in Heaven Suppressing Grand Stronghold but different in a way.
What happened in the Heaven Suppressing Grand Stronghold was the resurrection of the dead, the summoning of the innate Deity Kings’ projections and they all shouted the “Fu Sheng” Dao language.
As of now, the innate Deity Kings from the Dark Age were all chanting in a different Dao language!
All of a sudden, Zhong Yue felt the tight grip around the Space Dao within his body loosened and the energy within him that was suppressed by the weird rumblings became all worked up again.
But he was not the only one that felt this way. Tai Feng, Long Zhi, and the others also felt the changes in their energy and Daos and they all noticed that their suppressed power had returned back to them.
This also meant that the dead essence that shadowed every technique, arts and Daos was being dispersed by the Dao languages chanted by the innate Deity Kings’ skeleton!
They are forcing the dead essence away!
Zhong Yue came to realization; back when he started chanting the Dao language, the word he chanted loosened the grip around the Space Dao. This place’s heaven and earth Dao was sealed away by the weird rumblings and it was the ‘Yu’ word Zhong Yue chanted that loosened the seal!
With that, the innate Deity Kings that ruled space seized onto this chance and continued what Zhong Yue chanted, opened up a bigger hole in the seal and triggered a chain effect where the other skeletons chanted their Dao languages to enlarge the hole!
Now that I am freed from the danger the four Imperial Emperors posed, I’ve gotten myself into an even more dire situation….
Zhong Yue did not feel good. While Tai Feng and the others were stunned and too occupied by what was happening, the scene happening right now made Zhong Yue extremely uneasy.
Suddenly, an innate Deity Kings’ skeleton changed his Dao language and started chanting that eerie and terrifying Dao language.
With him changing the Dao language, the trigger was pulled;’ the many innate Deity Kingss’ skeletons changed and started chanting the exact same Dao language!
“Mo he ba he si be he, si duo ming duo si mo duo!”
The innate Deity Kings Dao skeletons chanted zealously again and again and under their chantings, the massive Dao skeleton lying on the altar’s center slowly stood up!
And that was when Zhong Yue noticed this Dark Age’s ruler was staring at him. There were no eyes in his eye sockets but the ruler still gave him extremely familiar feelings.
It was the pair of eyes that once stared at him!
