Eternal Sacred King - Chapter 2353
2353 Eight Heavenly Kings
Su Zimo’s heart skipped a beat.
Yun Zhu had a grim expression as well.
She had long suspected that there seemed to be an invisible hand behind this matter that was killing many cultivators.
To think that the three of them would be targeted the moment they came out of Avici!
Furthermore, from their tone, they did not seem friendly!
Right then, eight figures appeared out of thin air around the three of them and walked over slowly. In the blink of an eye, they arrived before them!
All eight of them wore monk robes and should be from the Pure Land of Bliss. They were extremely old and looked lethargic.
Slapping her storage bag, Mo Qing took out her Destiny Painting Book and opened it, prepared to tear off the painting paper at any moment!
Now that they had left Avici and her Essence Spirit was not restricted, Mo Qing could release her complete strength as a Perfected Immortal!
Mo Qing had poured all her effort into this Painting Book.
Yun Zhu had once said that if Mo Qing was truly enraged and tore all the paintings on the Painting Book, the living beings inside would be released and that would be a terrifying army!
Even if the remaining three great fairies joined forces, they would have to avoid her!
“Junior, give up. Your methods are child’s play in front of us.”
A monk said indifferently.
At the same time, the void behind the monk collapsed and a Grotto-heaven appeared. It shone with a Buddhist light and Sanskrit sounded with a terrifying aura.
“Heavenly King of the Buddhist monasteries!”
The expressions of the two fairies changed starkly.
A Heavenly King of the Buddhist monasteries was equivalent to an Immortal King!
Only a King realm expert could release a Grotto-heaven!
The Painting Book in Mo Qing’s hands fluttered one after another, as though it could sense the powerful aura of the Grotto-heaven behind the Heavenly King and was trembling slightly.
The void behind another monk collapsed as well, revealing a Grotto-heaven.
A second Heavenly King of the Buddhist monasteries!
A series of explosions shook the world as the eight monks propped up their Grotto-heavens and surrounded Su Zimo and the other two!
Even the might released by a Grotto-heaven was enough to suppress Perfected Immortals and Heaven Immortals, let alone eight Grotto-heavens opening at the same time!
The divine might rumbled in an unstoppable manner!
Mo Qing could still hold on, but Yun Zhu was injured and could not.
Against the might of the eight Grotto-heavens, Su Zimo’s body swayed and he could buckle at any moment as well!
“What are the eight of you trying to do?”
Su Zimo grit his teeth and asked slowly.
A Heavenly King smiled. “That’s right. As long as the three of you juniors are obedient and tell me everything you know in Avici, you don’t have to suffer.”
Suddenly, Yun Zhu asked, “Were you the ones who released the news about Avici?”
The eight Heavenly Kings lowered their heads in silence.
Yun Zhu continued, “Your lifespans are almost up, so you want to obtain the opportunities and treasures in Avici to extend your lives!”
“However, you guys are too cowardly and cherish your lives too much. You don’t dare to enter Avici personally either, afraid that you won’t be able to come out after entering.”
“That’s why you guys spread the news to lure cultivators from all over the place into Avici!”
“As long as someone can leave, you guys can do the same after you force out a solution and obtain an opportunity in Avici.”
Suddenly, a Heavenly King smiled. “You’re very smart, girl.”
Since things had come to this, there was no need to hide anything.
The Heavenly King continued, “Only, we’ve waited in the vicinity for a long time. Over the past few days, there have been around 170,000 cultivators who entered Avici. However, only the three of you can leave alive.”
“I believe that something extremely interesting must have happened to the three of you. This might involve some secrets of Avici!”
Surveying his surroundings, Su Zimo looked at the eight Heavenly Kings with a cold gaze and said in a deep voice, “Therefore, in order to extend your lives, the eight of you did not hesitate to kill 170,000 cultivators!”
“Aren’t you guys afraid of karma at this point of your Buddha cultivation?!”
“Junior, watch your tone!”
A Heavenly King said coldly, “These cultivators entered Avici because of their greed. What has their karma got to do with us?”
Another Heavenly King said, “If the eight of us can successfully extend our lives, even if they die, it will be a worthy death. The Pure Land of Bliss will have eight more Heavenly Kings in the future and can protect even more living beings!”
Su Zimo laughed, his eyes filled with mockery. “Therefore, in your hearts, the lives of the eight of you are more precious than the 170,000 living beings.”
A Heavenly King asked instead.
“We’re Heavenly Kings. Even in our twilight years, we’re still Heavenly Kings! What about you guys and those people?”
“In our eyes, you guys are merely ants.”
“Karma? What can the karma of ants inflict upon us? How laughable!”
A Heavenly King asked, “Tell me, what did the three of you experience in Avici and how did you leave?”
“If you tell the truth, you might have a chance to survive.”
Mo Qing shook her head with a resolute expression. “I’ve already sworn that I won’t reveal a single word of Avici. You guys don’t have to waste your efforts.”
Su Zimo and Yun Zhu remained silent as well.
“Don’t blame us for being nasty then.”
A Heavenly King pointed at Su Zimo and said coldly, “Search his soul first. If it fails, bring the two women into Avici!”
“Since the three of them can leave alive, it means that there’s definitely a teleportation Dharmic formulation in Avici.”
The other Heavenly Kings had no objections.
Su Zimo’s question earlier on disgusted the Heavenly Kings. Even if the soul search failed and Su Zimo was crippled, they would not lose anything.
Eight Grotto-heavens were opened at the same time and Su Zimo was only a Grade 3 Heaven Immortal. Even with his Grade 11 Green Lotus True Body, he could not move at all against the might of the eight Heavenly Kings!
The difference between them was too great.
Right then, a sigh sounded from the side.
The eight Heavenly Kings frowned and looked over.
Not far away from them, a withered old monk with long brows stood and looked over expressionlessly through his cloudy eyes.
The expressions of the eight Heavenly Kings changed slightly and their hearts skipped a beat.
The long-browed old monk looked much older than them, as though he was already half-dead.
However, none of them noticed when the long-browed old monk appeared here!
Su Zimo’s heart skipped a beat when he saw the long-browed old monk.
“Who are you? When did you arrive?”
A Heavenly King asked in a deep voice.
Although the long-browed old monk only looked like he had the cultivation of a Black Immortal, if he was only a Black Immortal, he would not have been able to hide from the senses of the eight of them and arrive here silently!
The long-browed old monk said indifferently, “I’ve been here the entire time.”
The pupils of the eight Heavenly Kings constricted!
If what the long-browed old monk said was true, it would be even more terrifying!
This meant that they had not discovered the long-browed old monk even after descending here!
