“Clank!” The soldiers stopped surrounding the fort and focused on Li Qiye instead .
The shiny spear tips aimed straight at him . There was no doubt that this was the most elite force in Stone Harmony . They were battle-hardened and personally trained by Yang Tingyu .
“Master, will he be alright?” A disciple inside the fort became worried and asked Wu Youzheng .
“Don’t meddle since that might annoy the young noble . ” Youzheng shook his head, thinking that the eccentric masters didn’t like others interfering with their business . He could finally breathe easy now since Li Qiye was here . Their sect was saved .
“It’s about to start . ” The spectators said softly .
A soft voice sounded: “Can Li Qiye stop the Blacksteel Elites? They’re definitely unstoppable in our system . ”
“Even if he can, Yang Tingyu is waiting to make his move on the side . He’ll be killed once Tingyu uses his imperial moves . He’s the only one with them here . ”
“Those imperial arts are indeed unbeatable . ” A few have witnessed the moves with their own eyes and became intimidated . They saw him suppressing Wu Youzheng with them, causing the guy to vomit blood .
Li Qiye chuckled at the enemies and said: “Picking the hard way instead of the easy way . ”
Yang Tingyu shouted: “I’ll show you the fate of those who dare to look down on our Luo Fact- . . . ”
Before the guy could finish, Li Qiye casually swung his sword as if he was playing with fallen leaves .
“Go-” Yingjian shouted before coming to a halt .
“Pluff!” Several thousand heads started to fly up in the air at the same time from a single sword sweep .
Their eyes were wide open as they watch the pillars of blood gush out of their neck, resulting in a rain of blood . They tried to scream after seeing their falling body but no sound could come out .
“Rumble!” Several thousand corpses fell on their back, resulting in an amazing scene almost like a blossoming lotus flower .
Blood flowed and came together through the gaps, heading for lower elevation just like rivers .
The astounded crowd couldn’t believe this scene . Just a second ago, these soldiers were in their prime state, ready to deliver the fatal blow .
Alas, just one casual cut from Li Qiye decapitated them before they could react .
Blacksteel was considered the strongest legion in Stone Harmony but it has become history after today . A single slash has annihilated an entire force .
“Ugh…” The pale Lin Yixue couldn’t help but vomit everything, even the bile in her stomach . Her legs felt weak so she nearly dropped to the ground .
As a cultivator, she has seen murders before but nothing to this extent - one raised sword and thousands of heads fell down .
Many spectators started vomiting as well . The soldiers in the fort were scared out of their mind and felt strength leaving their body .
A tiny place like Stone Harmony has never experienced such a grand carnage before .
“That’s horrifying…” One frightened soul murmured .
This would traumatize the crowd for the rest of their lives . Earlier, some were chastising Li Qiye for being arrogant but they shut their mouth now .
“Why do people never believe me?” Li Qiye blew away the blood on his sword and returned it to the sheath held by Yixue: “I always tell the truth . If I say blood will flow like rivers, it will . ”
The crowd staggered backward, shuddering at his sight . He looked like a god of death to them now, one horrifying beyond imagination .
“Do you believe me now?” He looked at Tang Tingyu .
The guy composed himself and felt an overwhelming dread . Li Qiye’s gaze made him stumble backward .
“Make your move, I’m not a bully . ” Li Qiye stood there with both hands behind his back .
The crowd was utterly convinced by Li Qiye, no longer thinking that he was too arrogant . They wondered if the number one expert of Stone Harmony could actually take him on .
“You think you’re unbeatable? No, my master is a True Emperor, capable of plucking the stars and stomping the sun . ” Yang Tingyu coldly said .
He couldn’t be any more blatant - that Li Qiye was strong but his master was even stronger and could take him down .
The crowd took a deep breath . One person recalled his identity: “Right, he’s still the disciple of an emperor . ”
They stared at Li Qiye instead . The emperor was one thing, but he also had a behemoth in the Mu Clan behind him .
Though Tingyu was only a disciple in name, he was still the emperor’s disciple . The emperor himself had acknowledged this .
These beings rarely took in disciples, so they wouldn’t ignore the murder of one . If Li Qiye were to kill Tingyu, the emperor would definitely get involved .
This person was strong, but how was he compared to Puresword True Emperor?
“Start . ” Li Qiye demanded .
Tingyu didn’t expect for his threat to not work . Bringing up Puresword True Emperor wasn’t enough to scare his opponent .
“Fine, to the death today!” He gritted his teeth and no longer gave a damn .
He really had no other choice since he couldn’t escape . Fighting was the only option .
“Boom!” He raised both hands to the air as flames engulfed his body . A majestic aura shot upward .
“Screech!” A totem in the form of a fire phoenix appeared behind him . It soared to the sky with a blazing trail .
This particular creature emitted the aura of a True Emperor .
