Li Qiye’s finger was still on the flat side of the blade yet Tingyu was turned into blood before having a chance to scream .
He probably never expected that death would come so swiftly for him, not allowing him the privilege of struggling .
Even his backer, Puresword True Emperor, didn’t have the chance to try and help him .
In the beginning, he dared to come here because of the emperor’s presence granting him both confidence and power .
He believed that regardless of Li Qiye’s strength, the guy wouldn’t be able to harm him under the emperor’s protection at all .
Who would have thought that destruction and death came so quickly? In the final second, he felt nothing but regret for being so suicidal .
“Boom!” Su Mobai’s sword crumbled as well into a million pieces .
The sword god was astounded at the sheer disparity between the two . He instantly retreated with lightning speed back towards the camp, realizing that only someone as strong as his master could take on Li Qiye .
“Isn’t it too late to leave now?” Li Qiye chuckled and started walking forward .
The sword god’s speed was brilliant but Li Qiye only needed one step to block his path .
“Whoosh!” The sword god instantly took action and unleashed a sharp slash . Though he didn’t have a sword, his heart certainly had one . The dao of the sword and lacerating arcs engulfed the sky .
This destructive move carried the lightning affinity, issuing loud crackles and metallic hums .
Lightning bolts in the form of swords instantly surrounded Li Qiye . The sword intent sealed the world, trapping the target .
Swordless yet even better than possessing a sword - the sword god’s most dominating move .
“No big deal . ” Li Qiye didn’t bat an eye even though the lightning swords were inches away from him . The sword dao gathered into an extremely sharp edge trying to penetrate his throat .
Strangely enough, all these various sharp manifestations couldn’t continue forward . Something extremely tough blocked their path and froze them in place . Even the main thrust aiming for Li Qiye’s throat was stopped despite the sword god mustering all of his strength .
“Even your master can’t amount to anything against me . ” Li Qiye chuckled .
He raised one finger again and flicked . “Boom!” The frozen time began to flow again .
The sword god’s dao crumbled in entirety into bright particles .
“Crack!” The sword god got blown flying with bones breaking and blood gushing all over .
This flick was unbelievably destructive . The youth was still being ravaged by its power . If this went on, he could turn into a pulp before smashing into the ground .
“Bam!” A palm appeared in the sky and quickly caught the youth, wanting to save him from this agony .
This palm was surrounded by imperial laws and auras . However, the sleeve covering it still got cut to a thousand scattering pieces .
Blood also gushed out - who knows if it was from the sword god or the hand?
“Puresword True Emperor!” Someone shouted .
His master clearly joined the fray during this moment between life and death .
“Kill him!” The army of the Mu roared furiously . These elites wanted to save their master . Their battle cries assaulted the sky and the stars like a tsunami .
They all thrust their spear upward in unison and accumulated into an incredible force in the shape of a dragon spear .
“Raa!” The dragon roared and raised its claws, wanting to lacerate him .
“Boom!” Li Qiye casually unleashed a palm strike, successfully crushing this draconic energy and hitting the army below .
He tore the heaven asunder with this casual blow . It was as if the entire sky vault was falling down on the army .
Once he raised his palm again, the ground has become stained with blood . The army was no longer there, replaced by flattened flesh and bits - a meat patty of sorts .
“How boring . Why do people always think they can challenge and kill me?” He yawned and said .
The world became silent . Though the emperor managed to save the sword god, he couldn’t save the army so they were massacred .
Everyone held their breath . The Mu has been reigning as one of the three behemoths for a long period of time . Their position was virtually unshakable .
Now, someone has just declared an all-out war on them by destroying this particular regiment .
Few have dared to do this . Fiercest became the second after Jade-break True Emperor to attack the Mu .
“Sir, you are too cruel . ” The resonating voice of the emperor appeared again . Though he himself hasn’t shown up, just his words alone awed the crowd .
His failure to save the army was rather humiliating . This was a slap challenging his prestige and his clan’s authority .
“Indeed, no need to preach though, just be ready to accept death after coming here, regardless if you’re a True Emperor or whatever daoist . ” Li Qiye replied, showing clear disdain towards these top beings .
The crowd quietly accepted the outrageous declaration . This was true to his style .
“Ignorant fool, today will be your last day in this world!” Lu Weijun shouted after hearing this .
