No one knew the result of the duel between the saber saint and Qin Jianyao, but their energies and weapon intents took a long time to dissipate in the region . The crowd needed a moment to regain their composure .
Suddenly, this brief lull was interrupted by something else .
“Boom!” A blast resounded across Nine Secrets . Next, continuous rumbles that made the world quake and the air tremble .
People saw a river of stars crossing through the sky with a silver color . It seemed to be descending from above straight for Nine-linked .
“Rumble!” This earth-shaking momentum scared the fish and birds . They either became frozen or hid in their lairs .
The sects and experts were naturally startled . They ran out and looked towards this silver river surging like a primordial beast, capable of destroying everything in its path .
“That’s the Central Legion…” A spectator saw everything and cried out .
In the beginning, this impressive flood made people think that a disaster was coming . Upon closer inspection, it was an army consisting of millions . They marched with lightning speed, traveling thousands and thousands of miles per day .
“You’re right…” His friend became startled after getting a good look .
The troops wore silver armor, the same with their horses . This resulted in a scene of stars illuminating the sky . The flood of stars coming from the sky seemed to be unstoppable . No sect or person dared to stand in front of their rampage . A thousand-mile path in front of them was wide open .
Anyone could see that they were furious, seemingly blazing with fire, and would kill anyone trying to slow them down .
The most terrorizing member as the old man in front . He led this legion as if he was leading a tsunami . His silver armor made him look like a rising moon; its luster pierced the eyes of the spectators .
He exuded the aura of an Eternal all around him . On top of his head was a floating pagoda shrouded in primordial chaos energy - as abundant as the ocean .
This pagoda could crush the firmaments, rendering others out of breath . When it came crashing down, it could turn anyone into a rain of blood regardless of how strong they are .
“Central Commander, Ma Mingchun… He’s a real Eternal…” Some people gasped and said .
The guy was indeed one of the strongest Eternals in Nine Secrets . Some even said that he couldn’t be weaker than any of the five Supreme Ancestors .
He was also the strongest commander in the six legions, hence their support for him .
“Who is he mobilizing again? Which poor soul had provoked the legion?” The clear fury of the torrential march left people astonished .
Ever since the disappearance of Silver Secret, War Saint Dynasty went under the rule of the six legions . The Central Legion became the strongest and no one would dare to insult them . This sky-splitting legion could completely scorch the earth below .
“I heard his only son, Ma Jinming, was killed by the king right here in Nine-linked . ” Someone else revealed .
“He’s poked the hornet's nest . Does he want to go all out against Central Legion?” One person took a deep breath .
“It’s no big deal . ” Another person said: “The Central Legion led the other five into rebelling and surrounding the imperial palace . All of them have betrayed the king, so they are considered rebels in his eyes . It’s understandable why the king would kill Mingchun’s son . ”
No one responded . It didn’t matter why the six legions surrounded the palace but Li Qiye was the only rightful king of Nine Secrets . The moment they maneuvered against the king, they became traitors and could never wash their hands clean of this act . The seal of betrayal has been marked on them .
Of course, this was a sensitive issue and many powers didn’t wish to talk about it due to the potential consequences .
“Is he using the entire legion just for revenge? That’s too much . ” Someone else said .
Some exchanged glances . Back in Lucidity’s era, he would never dare to do so even if his child was killed . Not only would he lose his head but Lucidity would also exterminate the rest of his clan .
“The six legions are listening to Ma Mingchun completely, especially the Central Legion . The elites of that group are all from the Ma Clan, so who would dare to say no? Plus, the boy was his only son too . It would be strange if he were to let this go . ” An older expert sneered .
This wasn’t something a commander should do except he was completely untethered . No one else could stop him from doing so when he had total control of the Central Legion .
“Boom!” The march continued on at a rapid pace and finally made it to Nine-linked Mountains .
The great army suddenly stopped yet still maintained a perfect formation right outside . This was indeed an impressive showing of discipline - perhaps proportional to their might .
Though Mingchun was furious and ready to kill, he still had a sliver of reason and didn’t dare to directly march inside the mountains .
No one in history has dared to do so, not even Lucidity . That would be insulting Nine-linked, or could even be construed as an invasion - becoming enemies with the sect .
“That’s General Ma and the Central Legion . ” The ones inside Nine-linked Mountains were startled to see the magnificent scene .
“He’s here for revenge . ” Everyone knew what he wanted to do .
Some simply wanted to watch while others had a gloating smile on their face, especially the young geniuses . It would be a joyous occasion if Mingchun could kill the king .
“Please hand over Li, Nine-linked . ” Ma Mingchun stood outside his eyes shining on the entire area . His aura took the breath from every spectator . The suppressive force of his pagoda was even more frightening .
This was an Eternal with a massive army behind him - a force to be reckoned with .
