As Su Zhengchen drew back his raised right hand, a three-foot sword appeared in it with a flash.
This sword was simple and ancient, its body covered in years of rust. Even the tassel hanging from the hilt had mostly rotted away. However, the part of the edge not covered in rust was still as sharp as ever, apparently unaffected by the passage of time.
Upon close inspection, one would find that small characters from an ancient script had been inscribed on the sword, together with exquisite cloud designs. They imbued the sword with a sense of nobility, holiness, and mystery.
As soon as Su Zhengchen grasped the sword, his entire being transformed, his demeanor becoming like an extremely sharp and dangerous sword.
Even True Lord Yellow Dragon sensed the change in Su Zhengchen, and he couldn’t help but furrow his brow.
“Your Majesty Taizong, I’m sorry! This lowly subject must break the promise I made with you!”
A complicated light gleamed in Su Zhengchen’s eyes as he gazed at the sword, but it swiftly faded away.
Boom! A peerlessly sharp Sword Qi surged out of his body and into the sword, instantly sweeping away the dust and rust to reveal the shining blade beneath.
Su Zhengchen was nurtured in turn by the sword, his energy growing sharper and more vicious, breaking free of its restraints. One wave of frightening Sword Qi after another radiated from his body.
If Wang Chong had been here, he would have been stunned. This was because it had been a very long time since Su Zhengchen had last used a weapon. Even when he was teaching martial arts to Wang Chong, he had only used his hand.
“Interesting. I didn’t expect a trick like this. But even after summoning this sword, you are still an ant who can change nothing!”
With a chuckle, True Lord Yellow Dragon once more became disdainful and confident. This human truly was very strong, but if this was all, then he was still a little lacking.
“Since you so earnestly long for death, this god will fulfill your wish!”
True Lord Yellow Dragon showed no mercy this time, his fingers immediately clenching into a fist.
As True Lord Yellow Dragon punched, it felt like a meteor had crashed into a lake, creating a massive wave. This wave was one of pure golden light that hurtled toward Su Zhengchen as fast as lightning.
This fist moved so quickly that it took less than a second to reach Su Zhengchen.
Boom! Su Zhengchen and his sword were instantly annihilated by True Lord Yellow Dragon’s fist.
All the men in black madly cheered, but True Lord Yellow Dragon raised an eyebrow in suspicion.
“It’s not right!”
It didn’t feel like his punch had killed Su Zhengchen.
As this idea flitted through True Lord Yellow Dragon’s mind, he spotted a flash of light at the corner of his vision. A pillar of Sword Qi was coming down behind his left-hand side, falling like a collapsing tree.
This Sword Qi tore through space like it was paper.
Kaboom! In the blink of an eye, that Sword Qi crashed against True Lord Yellow Dragon’s body.
A vast wave of Stellar Energy erupted from the impact site. “Aaaah!” The Imperial Army elites and men in black closest to the wave were instantly jolted to death, their bodies tossed high into the air.
Cries of alarm resounded through the air as everyone fell back. When experts like True Lord Yellow Dragon and Su Zhengchen fought, even the aftershocks would be enough to annihilate experts beneath the Saint Martial realm.
True Lord Yellow Dragon and Su Zhengchen cared nothing for what those around him were doing.
“Wait! That wasn’t his real body!”
Golden Stellar Energy radiated from True Lord Yellow Dragon, blocking Su Zhengchen’s Sword Qi. His face was solemn, and his attention wasn’t on his left at all.
True Lord Yellow Dragon had just noticed something. From the moment that mortal martial artist of the Great Tang had grasped that sword, his aura had vanished from Taiji Palace.
To be more precise, the entire area was now ‘him’.
Waves of Sword Qi blanketed the area so thickly that not even True Lord Yellow Dragon could tell where Su Zhengchen was hiding.
But this was absurd.
Suddenly, True Lord Yellow Dragon’s left fist exploded with golden light as he punched at a region of empty space to his left.
This fist had more weight behind it than a mountain, and even formless space seemed to compress itself into a mirror-like surface under the pressure. But this mirror lasted for only a split-second before it shattered, countless cracks appearing across it. And amidst these cracks, amidst the streams of Sword Qi, a blurry figure appeared.
In the face of True Lord Yellow Dragon’s destructive fist, the man and his sword shattered and collapsed.
But as True Lord Yellow Dragon was shattering this figure, a soft and indistinct voice came from behind him. It was a barely audible whisper, but it made True Lord Yellow Dragon instantly pale.
Or, to be more precise, an afterimage!
When Su Zhengchen grasped the sword, his speed had soared to an inconceivable level.
That stream of Sword Qi truly had hidden his real body, but Su Zhengchen had reacted so quickly that he had already begun to move before the punch had even been made, and when the punch hit, he had already gone around to True Lord Yellow Dragon’s back.
That he could do this to True Lord Yellow Dragon showed that Su Zhengchen was far stronger than the Tianfu Divine Lord, stronger than anyone on the battlefield except True Lord Yellow Dragon.
Like a peal of thunder in the middle of a silent night, a dazzling sword ray reached out from the depths of spacetime, going from a dim glow to a vast and blinding sun in a few seconds as it shot toward True Lord Yellow Dragon.
This attack was surrounded in boundless destructive might that sought to murder and execute everything it touched. The moment it impacted against True Lord Yellow Dragon’s golden Stellar Energy barrier, the heavens themselves seemed to rip open.
Boom! For the briefest of moments, Su Zhengchen’s form was visible, his hair dancing in the wind, his expression aloof. With one slash of his sword, he had sliced through True Lord Yellow Dragon’s formidable Stellar Energy barrier.
True Lord Yellow Dragon’s Stellar Energy barrier had been entirely made of energy from a higher dimension, making it tougher than diamond. This was why even those twelve True Dragon Sentinels working together had failed to defeat him. But Su Zhengchen had needed only one strike to break his defense.
True Lord Yellow Dragon instantly paled, his mind shaken.
There was no question that this human suddenly displaying such power was a surprise, and True Lord Yellow Dragon finally put away his disregard.
A shockwave suddenly swept through the area for several hundred feet around True Lord Yellow Dragon, and intense spacetime ripples began to radiate from him.
With a metallic clang, a white and hazy halo began to expand from his chest, blocking that terrifying attack from Su Zhengchen which could slay even gods and demons.
Su Zhengchen’s Sword Qi was as fast as lightning and powerful enough to cleave through a mountain, but when that Sword Qi more dazzling than the sun encountered that dim white halo, it immediately slowed down.
That wasn’t all. As the white halo spread outward, even Su Zhengchen began to slow down, like he had been fixed in space.
The Halo of Spacetime!
True Lord Yellow Dragon had circulated his Power of Spacetime and released his Halo of Spacetime!
Half a second later, a crack appeared on the white halo, and then countless more joined it.
Without the slightest hesitation, True Lord Yellow Dragon released a second, third, fourth… A total of twelve Halos of Spacetime were released, each one more dazzling and domineering than the last.
The first one was dim white, but the last one had the density and thickness of pure gold!
Su Zhengchen’s Sword Qi had produced a light that made the rest of the world lose its luster. And the sword he held had become the most frightening weapon in the world, more frightening than even gods and devils. Crack! The blazing Sword Qi blasted through the first Halo of Spacetime, and then the second. It then broke free of the strictures of spacetime to create countless cracks on the third Halo of Spacetime.
But when it encountered the fourth Halo of Spacetime, scarlet tinged with white, that Sword Qi finally shattered.
