Chapter 770: The Tyranny of the Lord!
Crack, Crack, Crack…
As the Lord of Heaven’s aura pressed down, the surrounding space seemed to be on the verge of shattering.
That terrifying scene caused everyone’s heart to race.
“What a terrifying power, to be able to shock even the spatial barrier of the Spirit Nether City. As expected of a Celestial Sovereign. If it was us, we wouldn’t be able to do this.”
“Don’t say so much. Quickly set up a defense. Otherwise, our physical bodies wouldn’t be able to withstand this power.”
The Sacred Sovereigns quickly set up a defense and used their strongest defenses to resist the aura.
For them, even a single thought from a Celestial Sovereign could crush them into pieces.
That was the difference between a Celestial Sovereign and a Sacred Sovereign.
Although both of them had the word ‘sovereign’ in their names, a Sacred Sovereign below the level of a Celestial Sovereign was as laughable as a group of ants.
That was also why all the Sacred Sovereigns in the universe wanted to surpass the limit and reach the level of a Celestial Sovereign!
That was because only when they reached the level of a Celestial Sovereign could they completely control their own destinies.
Lord of Heaven Yin Shi’s attack landed, and the pressure made everyone’s hearts palpitate. At the same time, the City Lord was furious.
He also unleashed his true strength to resist the Lord of Heaven.
Two heaven-shaking powers collided with each other, and the spatial coordinates of the entire Spirit Nether City fell tens of thousands of feet away!
A large tear appeared in the space, and black lightning continued to spread out from within.
That was lightning from other dimensions, and the power contained within was even stronger than the Celestial Lightning Tribulation that had surpassed the limits of this world.
One could imagine just how powerful the collision between the two of them was.
However, that was only the first attack.
After the first attack, the Lord of Heaven did not stop. Instead, he increased his attack.
In the next moment, the entire Spirit Nether City began to shake violently.
At that time, the Lord of Heaven did not just attack from the sky. He also attacked from several other directions, completely surrounding the Spirit Nether City.
It was as if he wanted to crush the entire city.
The City Lord once again launched a confrontation.
The two forces collided again. In an instant, the entire Spirit Nether City began to erupt with raging flames, which were mixed with lightning and thunder.
That was because the energy was too condensed. The pressure between the two sides reached an extremely terrifying level. Even the slightest friction would produce an unimaginable amount of energy.
At that moment, the Spirit Nether City seemed to have turned into a huge luminous celestial body.
All the energy and matter in the Spirit Nether City, including the power of space and the power of law, began to shrink!
They could not withstand the power of the Lord of Heaven, so they kept shrinking.
The collapse of space also made those Sacred Sovereigns feel a trace of panic.
“I can’t believe that the power of the Lord of Heaven has already reached such a level. After all, the City Lord of Spirit Nether City is able to display the power of a Celestial Sovereign in the city.
“However, facing his attack, he actually couldn’t withstand it. This is simply unbelievable.”
“It seems that the Lord of Heaven wasn’t this strong before. How did it not take long? His cultivation has already reached such a level.”
Everyone knew that the Lord of Heaven’s main body had not reached that level yet. In other words, he was launching a long-range attack.
A long-range attack definitely could not be compared to a short-range attack.
However, the Lord of Heaven’s long-range attack could already suppress the City Lord, who could display the strength of a Celestial Sovereign. One could imagine how monstrous Celestial Sovereign Yin Shi’s strength was.
If his true form came personally, the City Lord would probably be defeated in an instant.
Did that not mean that he could easily kill a Celestial Sovereign?
Was that not terrifying?
He was probably close to that legendary level.
Everyone’s hearts were filled with jealousy and envy.
They had not even reached the Celestial Sovereign realm yet, but the other party was already close to the Supreme Sovereign realm.
“Could this have something to do with the few Sacred Sovereigns that escaped from the Lord of Heaven’s sacred hall? Otherwise, why would the people of the Lord of Heaven’s sacred hall spend so much money to capture them?”
“What a pity. If we had known earlier, we would have captured them and researched their secrets.”
However, there was no time for them to regret it.
That was because, as the space continued to collapse, they could already feel an inexplicable pressure approaching them from every pore around their bodies.
Some of them even felt that it was difficult for them to breathe. The law energy in their bodies was not operating as fast as before.
If that continued, they might all die there!
The array of the Spirit Nether City had already started to operate. Golden patterns that were ten feet wide appeared on the ground, and they were still emitting rich golden light.
It was the array formation left by the ancestors of the Spirit Nether City. As they sensed the danger of the Spirit Nether City, it automatically appeared.
As soon as it appeared, it began to rapidly stimulate energy and send it to the City Lord so that he could release more energy to deal with the Lord of Heaven.
However, it was clear that the Lord of Heaven was also rushing over, so his energy was also continuously increasing.
Therefore, even if the City Lord could release more energy, he was still not his match.
The array of the Spirit Nether City was getting stronger and stronger. The golden light had even started to slowly turn towards the red light.
That meant that the array was about to exceed its maximum capacity!
If that continued, the array would soon be destroyed.
Once the array was destroyed, the City Lord would no longer have any means to fight against the Lord of Heaven Yin Shi. At that time, everyone present would probably die.
The City Lord immediately spoke,
“Everyone, please lend me your strength temporarily to help Spirit Nether City overcome this crisis.
“If we are unable to successfully overcome this crisis, I believe that none of us will be able to survive.
“I have already informed the Void Alliance’s allies so there will be other cultivators coming to help soon. By then, everyone will be safe.”
Hearing that, everyone did not hesitate and immediately released their own energy to help him resist.
After receiving the support of so many Sacred Sovereigns, the power of the City Lord suddenly increased explosively.
A Sacred Sovereign might be insignificant to a Celestial Sovereign.
However, if there were too many of them, they could form an ocean and fight against a Celestial Sovereign.
They focused all their power on the City Lord and he increased the pressure of their attacks, naturally, they would be able to resist the Lord of Heaven.
The array of Spirit Nether City calmed down and returned to its golden color.
Moreover, the collapse of the Spirit Nether City seemed to have stopped. It also began to push in the opposite direction, repelling the power of the Lord of Heaven.
Seeing that scene, the Lord of Heaven was extremely furious.
The City Lord was simply provoking his dignity.
First, he killed people and stole goods, then he fought against him, making him lose face.
If he did not kill that guy in that instant, or give him a heavy lesson, he would probably lose all face in the entire void from then on.
Just as the attack power of Spirit Nether City was continuously pushing outwards, the spatial barrier outside suddenly let out a sound that sounded like glass shattering again.
Hearing the sound of glass shattering, the hearts of everyone who had just calmed down were once again suspended in the air.
In the next second, the spatial vibrations shattered, and a stout figure slowly stepped out of the spatial tunnel.
He wore an imperial robe with a nine-clawed golden dragon embroidered on it.
The crown on his head was dazzling, and the sacred light behind his back appeared, making him look like the God of Creation. His Majesty was extraordinary.
When they saw that figure, a small portion of the Sacred Sovereigns started to panic.
“He’s here! He actually came here personally.”
“The Lord of Heaven Yin Shi! It’s the Lord of Heaven Yin Shi! We’re doomed now. We can’t hold on if he comes here personally.”
“What? This is the Lord of Heaven?”
For a moment, terrifying emotions started to spread.
No one was an idiot. They all knew that.
The reason why they were able to easily repel the opponent was mainly that the opponent was far away.
A long-range attack consumed more energy than a close-range attack. At the same time, the difference in strength was not just a little bit.
After the Lord of Heaven had come personally, there was no way they could defeat the opponent.
The Lord of Heaven Yin Shi did not waste any time. He waved his hand, and the Celestial Sovereign’s boundless power tore apart the defensive barrier of Spirit Nether City on the spot.
Spirit Nether City trembled because of it, and when everyone saw that scene, their hearts trembled even more violently.
So powerful that it made one’s hair stand on end, making it impossible for them to resist!
That kind of oppression was simply soul-stirring. It was as if people were at the edge of hell, and the next step could be death.
The Lord of Heaven Yin Shi waved his hand, directly trapping the City Lord on the spot. He did not even have the ability to move.
The crisp sound of a slap rang in everyone’s ears, and it was as if an invisible hand had ruthlessly gripped their hearts.
The City Lord had been hit!
He had been ruthlessly slapped by the Lord of Heaven in front of countless people.
That slap was 100 times more painful than severely injuring him!
That was because it was the rubbing of his dignity on the ground.
The City Lord was so angry that he almost vomited blood, but he could not say a word.
That was because he knew that at that critical moment, as long as he dared to say one more word and provoke the other party, the other party could kill him in a minute. It was just a finger movement, it was that simple.
He had to wait!
Wait for the cultivators of the Void Alliance to come and save him.
If he survived and successfully advanced to become a Celestial Sovereign, he would have the qualifications to survive in the future.
Whereas, if he died, then everything would be gone.
He could not die!
It was as if the Lord of Heaven had already seen through everything.
He slapped him again.
He knew that the Void Alliance would come to save him in the future, but he was not afraid at all. The sacred hall could completely rely on their own strength to resist the entire Void Alliance.
What he needed to do at the moment was to humiliate the City Lord of Spirit Nether City who did not know how to appreciate favors!
He wanted to let him know the price of going against him.
At the same time, he wanted to let everyone present know the consequences of going against him.
If he did not establish his prestige right there, then in the future, there would not only be one City Lord of Spirit Nether City who would dare to go against him.
Instead, there would be ten or 100 City lords who dared to go against him.
There might even be some low-level Sacred Sovereigns who would dare to go against him and hide in some cities.
The Lord of Heaven definitely would not allow that to happen, much less allow the situation to expand.
“Weren’t you very arrogant just now?”
“Show me your arrogance again.”
“Why are you so cowardly now?”
“Speak, are you mute?”
“If you have the guts, then fight back. Weren’t you quite manly just now? Why are you acting like a coward now? You don’t dare to say a word.”
Every time the Lord of Heaven said a word, he would give the other party a slap.
The sound of the slap resounded throughout the entire city and reached everyone’s ears. Although the sound of the slap was not as loud as the sound of thunder, those Sacred Sovereigns, who were not afraid of the sound of thunder, were scared half to death by that small slap. They were scared half to death.
That was a cultivator who was comparable to a Celestial Sovereign, yet he was being slapped by someone!
How absurd and shocking was that?
However, it happened right in front of everyone’s eyes.
It was likely that from that day onwards, everyone would have an even heavier shadow in their hearts.
That shadow was the Lord of Heaven!
The City Lord of Spirit Nether City clenched his fists tightly. If it was any ordinary person, being humiliated like that, it would be difficult for them to bear it in their hearts.
Moreover, he was not an ordinary person. He was the City Lord of Spirit Nether City, a powerhouse cultivator!
It could be imagined that after what happened, from that day onwards, he would become a joke in the entire void.
Such humiliation, not immediately committing suicide was already extremely valuable.
That made Ye Xiao, who was in the dark, unable to help but admire him.
The City Lord was not an ordinary figure. If he was not killed, he would definitely get rid of him in the future.
That fellow was simply too good at enduring. Such people were all ruthless characters that were one in 10,000.
Once given a chance to turn the tables, you would not even have the chance to cry.
He would let you die without a burial ground. Of course, it was also possible that he would make you beg for death.
Such a dangerous person, if he knew that it was a trick he played in the dark, he would definitely not let him and the Xuan Yuan immortal sect off!
