Nausea struck as the spectators stared at the antlers . They also got goosebumps all over .
The merchant looked like an accomplished sage . He has always been famous as a top Eternal on top of living the longest in Imperial .
Many viewed him as a senior deserving of respect . Who would have thought that there were so much blood and depravity in his past?
“No wonder why the Trade Alliance didn’t mind refining those lives . This is a normal matter to him, it might not be his first time either . ” A few experts shuddered after seeing this .
One ancestor chuckled: “A person’s life is limited, same for cultivators and powerful Eternals . When someone lives beyond the limit, hehe, they must have some secrets hidden from others in the form of extreme methods . ”
Many nodded in agreement since death was inevitable even for the strongest beings .
One needed to bury themselves for hibernation but the deer merchant didn’t do so all the time . He probably had several sessions but he also spent too much time in the open . There was no avoiding the flow of his life . It was obvious that he had employed certain methods to live for this long .
At this time, the emperor had a sword slash at the ready; the Tree Observer was gigantic in form; the Esteemed King had one treasure activated; the deer merchant showed off his antler . The four have prepared enough to attack .
They clearly have come up with a good plan . At their level, they just needed a short time to do so .
Meanwhile, Jade-break True Emperor continued to observe, curious about how Li Qiye would deal with this situation . If she were in his shoes, she would definitely lose one against four .
“Looks like you four have carefully thought about it . ” Li Qiye remained nonchalant after seeing the preparation of the enemies .
“Time to see what you can do, Sir . ” The merchant remained courteous like a venerable senior . The ignorant would be tricked by his demeanor .
“Okay, I will end all of you . Maybe you will see my awesome metho the split second before death . ” Li Qiye smiled .
The crowd didn’t know what to do . These four were virtually the strongest team in Imperial Lineage yet Li Qiye still had so much confidence in killing them . The four found it astonishing as well .
“Boom!” A loud explosion made the world tremble with debris flying everywhere .
“It’s starting at last!” Everyone turned towards the battlefield, thinking that the battle was beginning .
“No, not from there, underground!” People noticed that the five haven’t attacked yet .
“Boom!” Another deafening blast occurred and the ground shook again .
Mud finally went flying with a gigantic tentacle suddenly thrusting out . It looked like an octopus’ tentacle but was completely black, seemingly coming from the deeps below .
Everyone was caught off guard with its appearance .
“Ah!” It suddenly reached inside the city and wrapped around someone, pulling the person up .
The sucker on the tentacle began draining this person, leaving nothing behind but a dried corpse in the blink of an eye .
This happened too quickly and before people could reach, it threw the corpse down and attacked Mingluo City again .
“No!” The natives were scared out of their mind and started running for their lives .
“Die . ” Li Qiye suddenly emerged inside the city .
“Pop!” He flicked his finger and turned the tentacle into a bloody mist with a dark shade .
“Rumble!” More explosions detonated right after this . The entire city was on the verge of collapsing . It was as if Li Qiye’s attack has enraged a very powerful being underground . That’s why it began to rampage down there .
“What is that?!” Cultivators saw the cracks on the ground and became startled . They flew up in the sky while looking at the fissures in horror .
“Up you go!” Li Qiye roared and made explosions of his own .
An incredible scene appeared before the crowd; they saw the city being lifted up by Li Qiye from the crowd, inch by inch .
“Rumble!” Finally, the speed increased and Mingluo was now floating among the clouds .
“So cool!” Someone exclaimed in astonishment .
“Whoosh! Whoosh! Whoosh!” Black rays suddenly pierced through the ground and aimed for Li Qiye . They were as fast as lightning so they looked like numerous black lightning bolts .
Upon closer inspection, they turned out to be the black tentacles coming for him like a flood - wishing to destroy both Li Qiye and the city .
“Watch out!” Another spectator shouted .
Li Qiye’s eyes turned cold and summoned a bronze sword .
“Clank!” He swung it forward .
This sword had massive weight and created a zone of primordial chaos with the slash, easily severing the incoming tentacles . These severed pieces started falling to the ground .
Boom!” This was only met with more thick tentacles flying out from the depths and blotting out the sky .
“What the hell are these things?” People were confused .
An endless amount of tentacles drilled out of the ground, squirming and twisting in the air . This was quite a frightening scene .
Li Qiye retaliated by stomping down, creating one massive pit after another . Thousands of miles of crumbled, resulting in a great abyss .
