“The Path of a King? Li Qiye chuckled at the sight of the incoming slash and nonchalantly swung his saber: “Fiendish Annihilation!”
“Boom!” The evil saber exuded endless radiance . Each strand of light resembled a mighty pulse with enough force to pierce through the stars above .
In this blink of an eye, Li Qiye no longer existed, neither did the “devil king” and the evil aura . Only the saber was left behind with an apocalyptic slash without equals .
“Boom!” The Fiendish Annihilation directly shook the Path of a King .
The move from the saber saint had flattened everything but this path was shaking right now . The rainbow-like passage leading to the sun weakened .
“Rumble!” Inch by inch, the passage began to crumble . The slash from the saint lost its brilliance and regal energy - akin to a flickering candle in the wind .
At the same time, the saint was suffering a terrible pressure as if he had just been struck mercilessly by a hammer in full force, causing him to stagger several steps backward .
The saint had just lost after the very first move . The crowd shuddered with fear after seeing this .
Moreover, it was just a casual move from Li Qiye yet it was enough to trouble the saint . Just how strong was this man?
“The Path of a Conqueror!” The saint roared, gathering more true energy in the form of a tsunami, one wave after another . His momentum became multi-layered as a result .
There was no end to his true energy right now . This oceanic source allowed him to always be able to utilize his moves at their strongest potential .
“Clank!” He instantly unleashed the second slash, less regality and more domination .
This ferocious attack shattered the earth and the sky - the apex of power and domineering . The move actually also empowered his energy source, causing a total eruption . He looked like a god of war right now . The swings of his saber could take care of everything .
The slash scared the soul out of people, instilling fear into the enemies in three waves .
“Boom! Boom! Boom!” Each wave was more powerful than the previous, intending to destroy the evil saber . Fiery sparks went everywhere and brightened up the sky .
“So domineering . ” People said with admiration after seeing the saint rising up to the challenge with unstoppable momentum .
“Clang!” Unfortunately, it only managed to slightly shake the evil saber . The latter retaliated with the same move - Fiendish Annihilation . Nevertheless, this move was still a sure-kill, destroying the eight realms and the myriad ages .
The saber saint might be fierce but he still couldn’t stop the evil slash . Everything crumbled before its power . The only thing the enemies could do was to stretch their neck out and accept their fate .
“Boom!” The saint was pushed back dozens of steps this time around and vomited a mouthful of blood .
His domineering aura instantly dispersed while his majestic true energy became significantly weaker, though not to the point of depletion . He finally lowered his dimmed saber and became quite pale, clearly wounded from the previous exchanges .
“Is it over?” A spectator wondered .
Everyone held their breath - the saint was considered an invincible genius by many yet he had lost to the king already . They didn’t think anyone else in this generation could challenge the king anymore .
“Seems like the king was indeed hiding his abilities . ” The crowd thought, horrified . They felt a chill surge coursing through them, almost akin to being bitten by a venomous snake and on the verge of death .
They have confirmed that the king was actually a terrifying master, far stronger than a ninth-level True God .
What would be the result of those who have betrayed, mocked, and bullied him? They shuddered after thinking about this since many among the group have mocked him before . Even if they didn’t verbally express their disdain, they certain thought lowly of him .
What if he were to seize the throne once more? They could already see the disasters to come . So many people in Nine Secrets were about to die .
“Your saber dao isn’t bad, just lacking polishing . When you reach grand completion, you might be able to stop several moves of mine . ” Li Qiye’s voice came about .
He appeared again in the same pose and spot as if he didn’t move at all .
This no longer sounded like an insult but just straight fact now, due to the changed circumstances .
The saber saint took a deep breath and roared: “Again!”
He took another step forward in the sky: “The Path of a Ghost!”
This was a reverse slash, starting from the bottom then up vertically .
“Boom!” A lofty saber energy was unleashed but he didn’t stop there, releasing more slashes in succession .
The energy waves eventually gathered into a saber, flying straight for Li Qiye in the same sweeping motion .
The hymn of the saber drowned the world, adding an ocean of energy, more than enough to herald an apocalypse . Even the stars above weren’t spared .
Everyone found it hard to breathe while being stuck in this aura . They struggled to get out of this ocean of energy .
“Annihilation . ” Li Qiye didn’t bat an eye and the evil saber casually swung down again .
Resistance was futile before absolute annihilation . Even the gods up in their firmaments could do naught .
“Buzz . ” In this split second, someone suddenly appeared behind Li Qiye - the saber saint! It seemed as if he had been there the entire time .
“Pluff!” He thrust his saber into Li Qiye with lightning speed .
“A ghost is indiscernible . ” He slowly uttered .
“No!” Chuqing finally realized the gravity of the situation and shouted .
“Raa!” At the same time, a golden dragon came out of a spear thrust . Tang Hexiang who has been observing leaped into the air and turned into a golden ray full of murderous intent .
“Pluff!” The spear instantly pierced Li Qiye’s head .
Time seemed to be frozen and became an image . The crowd stood there, stupefied .
The crafty move from the saber saint was unpredictable enough but Tang Hexiang’s ambush took everyone like a storm .
