“Such ridiculousness!” The merchant kept on laughing since he didn’t know how to react .
Though he was willing to see Li Qiye antagonize the entire world, he still didn’t like the current humiliating treatment so he shouted: “Our Trade Federation swears to not exist together with you, we will destroy you for Imperial’s sake, so that it can enjoy a clear sky…”
A few experts here almost burst out in laughter but managed to stop themselves .
Just a few moments ago, he was blood sacrificing mortals . Though he wasn’t a devil, he was just as cruel as one .
But now, he shifted to the side of justice? Acting as the defender of Imperial?
Such hilarious irony, almost like a butcher suddenly becoming a vegetarian .
“I’m about to puke . Shut your mouth now, don’t spew that nauseating crap here . ” Li Qiye waved his hand and interrupted the merchant .
Some of the crowd gave the merchant the side-eye . Though they were still annoyed at Li Qiye, the merchant’s comment just now wasn’t pleasant at all .
If he considered himself to be a hero, then everyone else was practically saints .
The merchant quivered with anger . If it was anyone else, he would have already slapped the guy’s face off then crush him to death . Unfortunately, Li Qiye was far superior to him .
“Very well, I shall destroy your trash federation now . ” Li Qiye casually said as if he could destroy the famous alliance with a hand wave .
“Such shameless boasting . No one in the present day dares to make this claim . ” A roar came about since Green-robed Heavenly Merchant was too angry to respond .
“Boom!” Four beams of aura shot out of Mingluo . Four old men leaped into the sky and came to the scene .
It was as if four primal beasts were awakening . They instantly suppressed the area . Each step of theirs stomped on the heart .
“Boom!” People found it hard to breathe in their presence .
They carried an oceanic momentum and looked quite unbeatable . One was gray all over; another had a golden horn…
“Whitebeard Heavenly Merchant, Golden-horn Heavenly Merchant… . ” Someone shouted after seeing them .
All five heavenly merchants were present - quite a rare and magnificent scene .
After all, they came from different systems and usually presided over their own areas . They rarely gathered in the same place . This was enough to represent the Trade Federation’s stance on this matter .
This was the federation’s strongest Eternals outside of Venerable Deer Merchant . One would need to think twice before fighting them .
One person quietly said: “No one can take the five of them on with the exception of Lucidity King, Gu Yifei, and maybe Venerable Deer Merchant himself . ”
These were the toughest Eternals during their respective days . Though they weren’t born in the same generation, their power was quite similar .
“Yes, I heard they have fought against Venerable Deer Merchant before . Though no one knew the outcome of the fight, people believe that only those like Lucidity King and the merchant can take them down . That’s another reason why the five merchants are so loyal towards Venerable Deer Merchant . ” One ancestor said .
“The deer merchant is special indeed . Aged and weakened yet he’s still at the top of Imperial . ” People felt respectful towards him .
Rumor has it that he was the oldest Eternal in Imperial . One rumor stated that during his prime, Lucidity King lost to him by a single move .
Later on, his vitality withered but he could still take on Lucidity King .
In the present, most believed that these two were on the same level but during their prime, the merchant was most likely stronger .
Of course, one needed to bring Gu Yifei in as well . This person might be the strongest in Imperial, even above the other two .
“I wonder if Jade-break and Puresword True Emperor can handle these five . ” Another added .
“Jade-break True Emperor can for sure, but I don’t know about Puresword True Emperor . ” Her supporters were present in the crowd .
“Utter rubbish!” Fans of Puresword True Emperor immediately disagreed . The two sides started going at it .
“Hmph!” The four merchants released their auras straight at Li Qiye, wanting to take him down . Their scowl in union erupted thunderously .
“What an arrogant junior, daring to look down on the alliance on top of opposing the entire world . ” An old man with a golden horn said .
“Perfect, all of you are here now . ” Li Qiye said: “This will save me some time from looking for you one at a time . ”
The four merchants’ expression became ugly .
“We’ll cut you to pieces today . ” The gray-haired man furiously declared .
Li Qiye’s body suddenly flashed . In the blink of an eye, there were four, no, five of him in the sky .
Four of them stood in front of the four merchants while the last one remained in the same spot . This last one might be Li Qiye’s true body .
“Watch it!” Green-robed Heavenly Merchant warned his friends right away . He had experienced Li Qiye’s power already so prudence was the right choice .
In fact, his friends felt the same way and instantly seized the initiative .
“Break!” They had an unspoken understanding and combined their powers, resulting in a divine seal crashing down towards Li Qiye .
“Boom!” The world quaked before their might . Everyone felt as if the ground was sinking . Numerous cracks appeared all over the city .
The spectators shuddered at this impressive first move . It looked like this wasn’t their first time working together . They had methods for taking down someone individually stronger than them .
Completely useless . This divine seal shattered from a single slap .
Everyone saw the four being swatted away while vomiting blood . Next, they loudly slammed into the ground and created four huge pits with cracks emanating from them .
Li Qiye seemed able to deal with any technique . Even the four merchants lost to a single slap .
Only one Li Qiye was standing in the sky, as relaxed and leisure as always .
In fact, there weren’t five Li Qiye earlier . His speed was unbelievably fast so his remnant images remained in the air and confused the crowd .
The crowd gazed at the four pits and became empty-headed .
