The swift end of the guardian fleet not only surprised the spectators but also the disciples from Hidden Gold Grotto .
Their armada has swept through the realms in an unstoppable manner . Numerous kingdoms and sects fell to their firepower .
Normally, whenever their armada appeared in the sky by the outskirt of a sect, it meant imminent destruction . That’s why these sects would voluntarily surrender before a fight, aware that not only would their sect be destroyed, the land would be damned for eras to come as well .
As a result, just the appearance of the armada was enough to win without actually fighting .
However, their strongest fleet right now has been instantly destroyed . That’s why their disciples were so startled .
After regaining their wits, fear overtook other emotions . Who is this brat? Why is he so brutal and strong, actually daring to go against them?!
“Buzz . ” A light arc appeared above one main ship . A figure emerged with a golden glow, resembling a supreme god above all beings .
“Iron Vajra, one of the ten!” An expert immediately recognized him .
“So maybe all ten Vajras are really here . And here I thought it was their ships . ” People took a deep breath .
“Is this necessary? Why is Hidden Gold Grotto going all out? What are they here for?” Someone became confused .
The four Treasure Monarchs and ten Vajras represented the pillars of the grotto . More often than not, these Vajras wouldn’t personally lead the expeditions . Just having three or five meant that it was a big event . But now, all ten could be here to the astonishment of the crowd .
Few events in Imperial warranted this level of prudence .
“Then what are you here for?” Someone gave the questioner the side-eye .
A few people smiled wryly while the man himself answered: “It’s no secret, everyone knows there is an immortal stone hiding here . That’s what we’re all here for . ”
The crowd exchanged glances . Not all of them chose to divulge their goals .
“Who are you?” Iron Vajra on top of the warship glared at Li Qiye . His eyes pulsed with a terrifying flame .
He was intimidating and awe-inspiring enough without becoming angry . People shuddered after seeing his eyes . The weak felt their legs giving in .
These ten Vajras were very famous in Imperial and have killed numerous masters during their conquests . Countless sects have fallen because of them . Their hands were stained with blood .
“Just a passerby . ” Li Qiye said .
“My grotto has no grievances with you yet you have killed a million of our disciples!” Iron Vajra opened his eyes and revealed his oppressive fury . The ground trembled as a result of his shout .
“Oh?” Li Qiye lazily said: “There was no grievance but they didn’t have eyes, breaking my wooden house and annoying me so I killed them all . Is that a good enough reason for you?”
The crowd was stunned to hear this response . At the start, they didn’t know why this fight started and assumed Li Qiye was vying for the treasures as well .
But now, Li Qiye did it over a wooden house? No one would believe that he did this to an armada over something so trivial .
“A massacre because of a wooden house…” One spectator murmured in a daze .
“That must be one expensive wooden house then, trading for a full fleet . Yeah, the most precious house in history . ” One older expert said sarcastically .
“Haha, this is a good thing . Hidden Gold Grotto has always been imperious and ruthless . They came and ruined someone’s house for no reason, not even the three behemoths would act in this unreasonable manner . They finally met their match . ” Another expert gloated .
“ . . . ” This Vajra almost vomited blood . And here he thought Li Qiye had some pre-existing hatred against them . Who would have thought that he did it over a single house?
His heart was bleeding . Not to mention the value of those ships, it also required a long period of training for both the soldiers and generals . One-third of their firepower was gone now .
“You are insane, massacring one million over nothing!” Iron Vajra shouted: “If you wanted reparation for your wooden house, we could have given you a golden city! But now, we won’t let our disciples die in vain!”
“He speaks as if he’s so moral . ” One listener couldn’t help but say: “The ten Vajras have killed tens of millions . Taking down this fleet alone doesn’t put Li Qiye over their kill count . ”
“Haha, this is a case of the strong being above the laws . ” An older cultivator chortled then quietly said: “If Li Qiye was weak, not to mention a wooden house, his clan could be massacred as well, and Hidden Gold Grotto would think nothing of it, only akin to crushing a few worms . But now, they speak as if they have been wronged and are on the side of justice . ”
The crowd snorted and scowled in response . Recently, the ten Vajras have destroyed too many lineages and made the system hate them .
“I’m not interested in a golden city . ” Li Qiye waved his sleeve: “I just wanted you to know that if I’m in a bad mood, I will still annihilate you, your family, and your entire system even if you have only looked at me the wrong way . ”
“ . . . ” The crowd became slack-jawed by this tyrannical statement .
“True to his title . ” One person said with admiration . Fiercest was the right title for his style .
“You!” Iron Vajra became furious . This was the first time someone spoke to him like this . Others would tremble in fear after hearing their titles .
“Destroying a system over a single stare? Damn . ” An elder smiled wryly at the previous comment .
“There’s always someone fiercer . ” Schadenfreude was a common response for the crowd .
Everyone watched attentively, waiting for a big battle since it would be very enjoyable - the ten Vajras versus Fiercest .
