The atmosphere in Myriad was one of excitement . Everyone waited for Fiercest to appear and the stench of blood . The world would quake before his coming .
“Pop!” Space was ripped apart and a person emerged .
“Looks quite fun . ” He glanced around and said .
“Fiercest, he’s here!” A spectator recognized him right away .
The crowd took a deep breath after seeing his presence and all eyes turned towards him . He was the hottest character in Myriad right now, not just within the young generation . Only Dracoform had a comparable prestige in the contemporary .
“The show is about to begin, same with the storm of blood . ” Someone else murmured . No one knew where he was a while ago, but it didn’t matter right now .
After returning from Moneyfall, the sage spoke to him . He had an amazing harvest and saw what he wanted through the gigantic eye .
His expression carried a hint of brutality, a bit different from the past . Those who knew him were aware that this was his expression before a massacre .
He glanced briefly towards the martial court in the far horizon and smiled: “I’m nice enough to assist people if they wish to die . ”
The crowd shuddered in response, feeling a chill coursing down their spine . Such provocation would be laughed at in the past, but they were ready for a massacre now . Fiercest always followed up his threat with blood .
“Hahaha . ” A burst of hearty laughter came about as Mu Shaochen appeared above the martial court: “Today is a joyous occasion for me, marrying the martial goddess . I welcome you- . . . ”
Li Qiye’s provocation was swiftly countered .
“Pluff!” Mu Shaochen suddenly stopped by a finger strike from Li Qiye . It pierced through his chest and blood gushed out as he fell on his back .
Keep in mind that Li Qiye was nowhere near the system yet despite the distance, just one finger strike from him ended Mu Shaochen .
Many started thinking that maybe Dracoform couldn’t be that much stronger than Fiercest even with the help of his system .
“I can’t be killed! This is our clan’s art of immortality!” Shaochen eventually got up and shouted .
“It’s just one hidden soul . ” Li Qiye leisurely: “Calling this an art of immortality is just a joke . Don’t worry, I will make your death gruesome . ”
“Hah, looks like you do know quite a bit . We’ll be waiting for you at the martial court for my marriage ceremony . ” He snorted before disappearing .
Everyone realized that he was just trying to provoke and lead Li Qiye to the court, straight into his trap .
There was no way Li Qiye would let this go since Wu Bingning was one of his followers despite being aware of the traps .
“Well, today is a good day to kill . ” Li Qiye looked at the sky before flying for Vermillion .
“Fiercest is going there . ” It didn’t take long before more and more people started heading towards Vermillion . The martial court became lively and crowded with numerous guests .
“This fight is totally worth watching, don’t miss it! You better start betting too! Test your luck!” The gamblers had their fun .
The news of this battle spread across all of Myriad . The excitement was at an all-time high . The disappointment would be palpable if they chose to not fight .
Discussions began everywhere .
“Does the Mu Clan really have an art for immortality?” People saw Shaochen coming back to life multiple times and began asking their seniors and ancestors .
If such a thing truly existed, everyone would covet this knowledge .
“Perhaps, but who knows to what level?” One old ancestor with information on the Mu said: “Fiercest said it earlier . Shaochen is hiding one soul, so he only has two souls with him, rendering him unkillable . Looks like the legend is true, their progenitor has really found an incomplete version of a heavenly scripture . ”
He was right . The Mu had something like this, albeit, it wasn’t true immortality . After obtaining an incomplete scripture, their progenitor created this undying art . As long as the user hid away one of their souls, they would be extremely hard to kill .
There were negative side-effects . By taking away one soul, the user’s cultivation would become stifled, most likely unable to become a True Emperor or progenitor .
Mu Shaochen chose to do it . Despite his supreme talents, he didn’t care for cultivation and hated putting in the effort . This made his cultivation far inferior to his eldest brother .
What he could do was understanding numerous merit laws and perfecting the lost legacy of their clan . Thus, he was extremely valuable to the clan so they wanted him to cultivate this undying art . Though it would weaken his cultivation, the benefits outweighed the cons for someone who didn’t put in the hard work . It was enough to satisfy him .
Thus, the guy remained confident and boisterous despite knowing that he was no match for Li Qiye . As long as his one soul was still at the Mu, so what if Li Qiye was stronger?
Li Qiye seemed to be taking a stroll, but each step was covering a massive distance .
The martial court’s atmosphere became quite tense . Its members readied their weapons while trembling with trepidation . Certain sects in the system have actually already activated their best formations .
Though he could sense the fluctuation in powers, Li Qiye ignored all of this and leisurely arrived with a smile on his face .
