What did they just witness?
The eyes of the purple-clad young man hovering in the air behind that peculiar stone tablet suddenly turned crimson red and he was emitting streams of bloodcurdling aura.
In the next instance, a snap reverberated in the air. The hair band tying up the purple-clad young man’s long hair had broken all of a sudden. His long hair now flew in the wind like wriggling black snakes.
Very soon, these black snakes started to change. To be more precise, the color of his hair began to change.
The purple-clad young man’s long hair that seemed like wriggling black snakes started to change to become purple gradually. It was a freaky-looking purple and his hair seemed to have transformed into purple snakes.
The snakes were wriggling at a speed that was becoming faster and faster.
Sizzle! Sizzle! Sizzle!
Nobody noticed it but the purple-clad young man was soon entirely buried in a black mist. There were even some black lightning-like things that surfaced all over the black mist.
A loud bang resonated in the air. It was a gale of widespread, rolling impact waves that swept out all over the place from the stone tablet that lacked a corner as the purple-clad young man held it.
This impact wave went even further than the impact wave that had formed from the hacking of the gigantic saber that was formed by Zhou Yi and his saber.
Boom! Boom! Boom! Boom! Boom!
Ear-piercing explosions continued to erupt in succession where the impact wave swept through. Some of the large stones outside of the 100-meter radius had either transformed to become dust, shattered into rubble, or were even sent flying away.
Some of the Martial Emperor’s disciples who had been standing outside of the 100-meter radius did not even have time to dodge. In just the twinkling of an eye, they were enveloped by the impact wave and were sent shooting away with fresh blood gushing out of their mouths ceaselessly.
“Hmph!” Not only these Martial Emperor’s disciples, but even Zhou Yi was also now forced to retreat by more than ten steps because of the impact waves before he finally came to a stable halt again. With an unhappy snort, his terribly pallid face was very unsightly.
Looking at the purple-colored figure who was holding the stone table like a Demon God appearing on this earth, fear rose up in Zhou Yi’s heart without any reason.
The fear continued to spread and soon, hint of terror could be seen in his eyes as well.
Boom! Boom! Boom! Boom! Boom!
When the impact wave swept out, many people in the depths of the Lost Stone Forest were also taken by surprise as well.
“What a horrifying power!”
“This energy seems to be coming from the southeastern of our Lost Stone Forest… Let’s have a look at what’s actually going on.”
“Such a terrible power must’ve already crossed the Martial Monarch’s boundary.”
At once, other than the crowd that was taken by surprise, there were two other Martial Emperor’s direct disciples who had also been taken by shock.
Two graceful figures soon assembled together.
One of them was dressed in blue with his long hair draped over his shoulders. It was a handsome, young man who appeared to be young in just his thirties.
The other man was also young, but he was clad in green. With a reserved face, his eyes were emotionless as though somebody owed him a great deal of money.
“I can’t believe that you’ve been alerted as well… Let’s go and take a look at what’s actually happening,” the young man in blue smiled as he said towards the other man.
The green-clad young man nodded nonchalantly before he disappeared together with the man in blue from the spot as though they had never appeared there before.
Deep within the Lost Stone Forest, inside a stone house that was hollowed from a massive stone, a woman in red sat cross-legged on the stone bed. Suddenly, her eyes flew open. Her beauty that could topple huge nations seemed to make everything in her surroundings dull by comparison.
“What a familiar aura.” The first thing that came to her mind was how familiar the energy that swept from afar was.
This tyrannical aura gave her a sense of warmth.
Even she could not explain why.
Curious she left the stone house and rushed towards where the aura came from, the southeast of the Lost Stone Forest.
At the southeast of the Lost Stone Forest, as the impact wave surged out of Duan Ling Tian — whose hair had become purple and whose eyes were a shade of crimson red — and ran amok throughout half of the entire Lost Stone Forest, more people gathered.
These people were mostly disciples and followers of the Martial Emperor.
Of course, two of them were the Martial Emperor’s direct disciples as well.
“Senior Brother Zhao.”
“Senior Brother Sun.”
As the two Martial Emperor’s direct disciples made their entrance, the group of Martial Emperor’s disciples and followers greeted them respectfully.
The blue-clad Martial Emperor’s direct disciple smiled and nodded in response.
As for the green-clad Martial Emperor’s direct disciple, his face remained cold and aloof since the very beginning, not giving a damn about the group of Martial Emperor’s disciples and followers at all.
Yet, the crowd did not mind it at all.
They had long heard about Senior Brother Sun’s temper before. Let alone them, even if he came to meet the other Martial Emperor’s direct disciples, he would have the same expression on his face as well.
“Zhou Yi?” Soon, the Martial Emperor’s direct disciple with the surname Zhao exclaimed in surprise. The group of people who had just arrived also noticed Zhou Yi, the young man in black who was standing from afar.
“It’s Senior Brother Zhou!” Right at that moment, the group of Martial Emperor’s disciples and followers exclaimed in surprise.
Zhou Yi was the strongest Martial Emperor’s direct disciple in their Lost Stone Forest, and he was no stranger to them.
Just then, the group of Martial Emperor’s disciples and followers also noticed the group of people approaching. Respectfully, they greeted the two Martial Emperor’s direct disciples leading the group, “Senior Brother Zhao, Senior Brother Sun.”
“What’s actually going on? Who’s that young man with the purple hair and crimson eyes dressed in purple?” The gaze of the Martial Emperor’s direct disciple whose surname was Zhao soon landed on the purple-clad young man not far in front of Zhou Yi. The aura that he emitted suppressed him to the point that he could barely breathe.
He also noticed that the energy that had taken him by surprise just now seemed to have come from this purple-clad young man.
“He…” Just as one of the Martial Emperor’s disciple was trying to say something, a rolling blast interrupted him.
In the distance, Duan Ling Tian, whose hair had turned purple and whose eyes were now crimson red, raised his hand and set off a series of detonations ceaselessly. The blasts swept out and created circles of ripples that could be clearly seen in the air.
These circles of ripples were the traces left behind by the air flows in the air when his energy quivered the air.
In the depth of Duan Ling Tian’s mind, a glum voice suddenly resonated, “I must finish this in the shortest time possible!”
After he had successfully been devilified by activating the Devilseal Tablet once again, Duan Ling Tian’s body was no longer under his control again.
However, his consciousness was still hanging on right then, and he could still take charge of his own body in some manner.
Under the watchful eyes of the others, he suddenly lifted his head. His gaze instantly locked onto Zhou Yi nearby as a murderous gleam flooded his crimson eyes.
Horror dawned on Zhou Yi.
Seeing Duan Ling Tian’s face, he did not have any confidence at all.
“Big Brother Duan!” Right at this moment, a voice that was filled with joy reverberated in the air, distracting Duan Ling Tian who was just about to make his move on Zhou Yi.
“T-Tian Wu.” Turning his head, Duan Ling Tian immediately saw the woman in red standing in the distance and looking like a fire elf.
That was none other than Feng Tian Wu who had just arrived at the scene.
At that moment when he saw Tian Wu, Duan Ling Tian promptly made up his mind. “It’s even better now that Tian Wu is here. Before I lose my consciousness completely, I must kill Zhou Yi and bring Tian Wu away with me!”
At the same time, his consciousness that was slowly dissipating was doing its utmost effort to control the body that had been devilified as he cast a mighty strength. It was a strength that did not belong to the Cloud Continent.
A gale with a horrifying impact wave once again swept out and sent chills down the spines of everybody present.
“A Martial Emperor?” At once, the Martial Emperor’s direct disciple whose surname was Zhao turned solemn right away.
Soon, his eyes narrowed because he realized that the purple-clad young man, whose hair was purple and whose eyes were crimson red, had transformed to become a purple residual figure in front of him before charging towards Zhou Yi.
“Zhou Yi will most likely be killed.” This was the first thought that came to his mind.
Even though Zhou Yi was a Martial Emperor’s direct disciple whose strength was better than his, he felt that Zhou Yi would not be able to survive in the face of this person who possessed the strength equivalent to a Martial Emperor’s.
Just as most of the people realized that Duan Ling Tian had vanished from their eyes, a loud ear-piercing roar reverberated and pierced their eardrums till they ached.
All of the Martial Emperor’s followers were spouting out blood from their ears and their faces were horribly pale.
Even the group of Martial Emperor’s disciples now had very ashen faces.
As the loud sound reverberated again, before they could realize what was happening, a strong wind with a huge impact wave had already swept out with the loud explosion as the center.
The entire earth quaked and the web-like fissures that originally covered the ground spread out even more ceaselessly before it formed a series of ferocious trenches.
Where the impact wave had passed, the group of Martial Emperor’s disciples was also forced to retreat by over ten steps. Some of the Martial Emperor’s followers were even sent flying by the quake.
The unfortunate victims included Feng Tian Wu as well.
Feng Tian Wu’s strength was even much more inferior to these Martial Emperor’s disciples. She stood much farther away, so she only suffered from minor injuries.
Before most of the people, including Feng Tian Wu, could realize what was happening, three streaks of voices resonated in the air at almost the same time.
Zhou Yi, who was sent flying and whose face was awfully pale, and the two other Martial Emperor’s direct disciples bowed down respectfully towards a tall figure blocking the purple-clad young man.
This looming figure was fully clad in gray with his hair flying everywhere in a tousle. Standing as firm as a rock, he emitted a powerful force.
He was a lofty and tall middle-aged man. His brows were majestic but not angry-looking. Despite his ordinary looks, he exuded a distinguished demeanor.
The attack that Duan Ling Tian cast after he was being devilified was directly blocked by him.
As the impact wave swept out, the scene temporarily regained its tranquility for now. However, everyone knew that this was just the calm before an even more powerful storm.
“Martial Emperor Shi Qi?” It had never crossed Duan Ling Tian’s mind that somebody would actually appear and block the attack he unleashed towards Zhou Yi as he was prepared to kill Zhou Yi and bring Tian Wu away before he lost his sanity.
At that instance, Duan Ling Tian could guess the identity of the newcomer.
It was the owner of the Lost Stone Forest, Martial Emperor Shi Qi!
