Chu Chaoyun recognized Xiao Chen and felt slightly stunned. He could not help reminiscing.
The past immediately unfurled like a painting in Chu Chaoyun’s mind.
Lin Feng tortured the remaining ten-odd Sovereign Emperors using the Qiongqi Beast Ghost Pennant, making them wish to die.
The Qiongqi Beast Ghost Pennant was extremely horrifying in the first place. When Lin Feng used it, he actually managed to tap the Great Desolate Eon rage.
The rage from the Great Desolate Eon traveled through time and space to support the Qiongqi Beast Ghost Pennant, making it feel like a Great Desolate Eon ferocious beast had arrived in the mortal realm.
The even more horrifying thing was that Lin Feng’s attacks contained the mysteries of the Death Dao. It could eradicate lifeforce and consume everything.
These Underworld God Guards saw that they could not leave, finding both advancing and retreating difficult.
They happened to see Chu Chaoyun in a daze, so they immediately steeled themselves. Since they could not leave, they might as well attack together and kill Chu Chaoyun while he showed an opening.
The ten-odd Sovereign Emperors simultaneously launched various killing moves at Chu Chaoyun.
The world immediately darkened, and dense Demonic Qi blocked out the sky, not letting any light through.
The Demonic Dao Divine Energy showed a domineering, unruly, and berserk side when ten-odd Sovereign Emperors attacked together without restraint.
The Dao Domains of the Underworld God Guards appeared as horrifying as a limitless hell. The Fire Dao Domains were black with malicious spirits howling. The Ice Dao Domains appeared scarlet like blood, refined with countless cultivators’ blood. The Dao Domains all looked sinister and horrifying.
Supported by Divine Seals, the various Dao Domains layered over each other as the Underworld God Guards attacked ruthlessly, appearing flabbergasting.
These Underworld God Guards were prepared to ignore everything else. Even if they had to face the Qiongqi Beast image head-on, they had to kill Chu Chaoyun while he was in the daze. They could not give him any opportunities.
These people accurately seized this opportunity. Given Chu Chaoyun’s character, he would not show such a big opening unless he saw an old friend.
“Oh no, your friend is too careless.”
Lin Feng could not help feeling anxious when he saw this. How could Sovereign Emperors get careless when fighting each other? Even though the Qiongqi Beast image severely injured this group of Sovereign Emperors, they were still Sovereign Emperors.
Not to mention Sovereign Emperor opponents, even if one were fighting a regular cultivator, an opening could be fatal.
Showing such an opening to ten-odd Sovereign Emperor was simply too careless.
Xiao Chen frowned slightly and wanted to remind Chu Chaoyun. However, it was already too late.
Xiao Chen did not say a word. He merely raised the God Shadow Bow and infused his Soul Energy into it with all his might as he nocked another arrow.
Even so, he was still somewhat too late. The killing moves of the ten-odd Sovereign Emperors instantly covered Chu Chaoyun, preventing him from dodging or fleeing.
After Chu Chaoyun startled back to himself, he smiled faintly. Like before, he did not show any fluster. The instant he turned around, his left hand continuously formed hand seals. As his fingers moved, incredibly profound divine characters came out of his body and spread out.
When the ten-odd Sovereign Emperors’ attacks descended, Chu Chaoyun calmly sent out a sword light.
“Eternal Primal Chaos, Splitting Heaven and Earth with a Sword!”
When this sword light appeared, a loud sound came from Chu Chaoyun’s body. The ground for five hundred kilometers around started shaking.
In the next moment, the sword light flared with a dazzling light, and a sword intent that seemed even more ancient than the Great Desolate Eon spread out.
The ten-odd Sovereign Emperors paused before this ancient sword intent, which made them feel minuscule as space and time seemed to freeze around them. While they were right in front of Chu Chaoyun, they could not get any closer. They only needed to land their attacks, and Chu Chaoyun would die, yet they could not land their attacks.
When the ten-odd Sovereign Emperors could move, they vomited mouthfuls of blood, knocked into the air by the sword light with a huge hole appearing in their chests.
Nearly at the same time, Xiao Chen released the arrow infused with his full power.
A Sovereign Emperor immediately exploded. However, it was not over yet. The shock wave from the arrow covered in Heart Flame spread out as it exploded. This mangled the flesh of the other Sovereign Emperors, reducing them into an even more pathetic state.
Then, the Qiongqi Beast image charged over with the rage from the Great Desolate Eon, making the Sovereign Emperors scream in misery.
Most of the nearly twenty Sovereign Emperors had died, leaving only four. They seemed to turn crazy as they fled with all their might.
Xiao Chen did not want to sustain any hidden injuries. However, he did not want to expose his trump card of the two Medial Grade Soul Tools. Hence, he overdrew on his Soul Energy.
Then, he shot another four swift arrows, killing all four severely injured Sovereign Emperors and sparing no one.
After putting away his bow, Xiao Chen felt like his brain was about to explode. He staggered and tumbled off the summit.
The Demon Blood Vulture moved quickly, turning into a beam of red light as it caught the falling Xiao Chen.
After landing heavily, Xiao Chen gently smacked his forehead and shook his head. “Even with the Soul Energy of a 3-Vein Sovereign Emperor, I should not push this hard. This is too reckless.”
The arrow that Xiao Chen initially prepared to save Chu Chaoyun drained all his Divine Energy and Soul Energy. Then, he overdrew on his Soul Energy to shoot four more arrows. An ordinary person would have fainted long ago.
In the end, Sovereign Emperors were too difficult to kill.
Even with two of the Medial Grade Soul Tools that the Scarlet Blood Pirate King left behind and an absolute upper hand, killing Sovereign Emperors would be challenging, even if he faced Sovereign Emperors who had not opened Divine Veins yet.
This time, if not for Lin Feng accidentally accessing the Great Desolate Eon rage in the Qiongqi Beast Ghost Pennant with his Death Great Dao and the terrifying might of Chu Chaoyun’s final sword strike, killing these nearly twenty Sovereign Emperors would practically be impossible.
“We have gone too far, killing nearly twenty Underworld God Guards… The Underworld God Hall will definitely send out the Underworld God Protectors.”
Lin Feng felt flabbergasted. He had thought of attacking the Underworld God Hall to take revenge for his junior sister. However, he had never thought of killing ten-odd Underworld God Guards as a 1-Vein Sovereign Emperor.
The outstanding talents of the nine layers of the Abyssal Underworld gathered in the Underworld God Hall, which invested heavily in each of the Underworld God Guards to nurture them.
Losing twenty Underworld God Guards in one go would definitely enrage the Underworld God Hall’s Elders.
Even the most ordinary Sovereign Emperors were still worth a lot.
However, this was still fine; these were not elite Underworld God Guards. Otherwise, their deaths would attract Supreme Elders over to the Final Blood Battlefield.
Even though Lin Feng said that, he still used the Qiongqi Beast Ghost Pennant to absorb the souls of the Underworld God Guards.
The souls of Sovereign Emperors were great nourishment for the Qiongqi Beast Ghost Pennant.
Lin Feng found himself falling in love with this Qiongqi Beast Ghost Pennant; it was as though it was tailor-made for him.
His Death Dao Domain showed unimaginable might with the aid of the Qiongqi Beast Ghost Pennant.
On the other side, the Demon Blood Vulture carried Xiao Chen over to Chu Chaoyun.
Chu Chaoyun did not look too good. That flash of sword light had probably drained all his Divine Energy and Soul Energy.
“Congratulations. You seem to have touched the threshold of the Primal Chaos Dao Domain.”
While Chu Chaoyun had not comprehended the Primal Chaos Dao Domain, Xiao Chen could tell that he had already touched its threshold in that final sword strike. Furthermore, he was extremely close.
Chu Chaoyun smiled bitterly. “How could it be that easy? While I am just half a step away, I might never make it there in this life. However…”
Chu Chaoyun raised his eyebrows and changed the topic. Smiling, he said, “We have not met for twenty-odd years. I was wondering what the first thing you say would be. Unexpectedly, it is congratulations.”
Xiao Chen could not help feeling flabbergasted. Could Chu Chaoyun have gotten careless and nearly died because he was thinking about this?
“What are you doing in the Final Blood Battlefield?”
“What are you doing in the Final Blood Battlefield?”
After a moment of silence, the two spoke at the same time, simultaneously asking the same question as though they were telepathically connected.
That felt awkward; the second line was also exactly the same. Xiao Chen and Chu Chaoyun did not know what to say.
“I’ll answer. You two are very strange.”
Lin Feng held the Qiongqi Beast Ghost Pennant as he appeared before the two. He said, “I am here with him to carry out a mission for the Heavenly Alliance. As for the mission content, we cannot divulge it due to the Heavenly Alliance’s rules.”
Xiao Chen nodded and said, “We suffered some setbacks along the way, but it’s pretty much what Lin Feng said.”
Chu Chaoyun was startled. He asked with some surprise, “Could you be looking for the same thing as I am?”
Xiao Chen and Lin Feng felt slightly stunned. They exchanged looks, both finding this strange.
Chu Chaoyun came looking for something as well?
“Let’s take it out together and see what we are all searching for.”
The two counted down silently. Then, Xiao Chen took out the Heavenly Alliance’s holy relic, the cracked Seven Color Stone. Chu Chaoyun took out a key, an Ethereal Immortal Palace key.
