EIF - Book 03 Chapter 054: Huangfu Chaoge

Mu Chenfeng wiped off the blood at his ears and eyes as he looked at Ensnaring Performance in horror.

Long Wanqing slowly came to her senses. Venerable Liu Nian wiped off the cold sweat on his head.

“This…this…what is this song?” Long Wanqing looked at Ensnaring Performance in horror.

“I wrote it myself. It is called Little Radish,” Ensnaring Performance immediately said excitedly.

Long Wanqing: “…”

What I mean is what is up with that, not the name of your song!

“Something’s not right. There has never been a song that can cause me to lose myself like that. That was not just a song, right?” Venerable Liu Nian looked at Gu Hai in a daze.

“Venerable Liu Nian, are you praising me? I also feel that my singing is different from others,” Ensnaring Performance chimed in at a suitable moment.

Venerable Liu Nian: “…”

Smiling bitterly, Gu Hai said, “I don’t know, either. Perhaps his singing contains an unpleasant attribute?”

“Master, you don’t like it because you don’t know how to appreciate it,” Ensnaring Performance protested in anger.

Mu Chenfeng looked at Ensnaring Performance in disdain. “Gu Hai, you can control its mind anyway. How about you erase his consciousness and reconstruct it?”

“Mu Chenfeng, you are a worthless nobody. I sang you such a nice song, but you try to harm me?” Ensnaring Performance growled.

However, Gu Hai shook his head and said, “There’s no need. Although it is unpleasant to the ears, it is still alright. Perhaps I might need this singing at some point in time.”

“Master, you understand me the best. I’ve decided. I will sing you a song every day,” Ensnaring Performance said, feeling touched.

Gu Hai’s expression turned dark as he said, “If you dare to sing to me again, I will immediately reset your consciousness.

Ensnaring Performance: “…”

“You are not to sing to us again in the future!” Long Wanqing shouted.

Everyone nodded.

Ensnaring Performance was confounded. “There are plenty of good songs, but a soul mate is hard to find. When you went to the previous manor lord’s funeral, you did not bring me.”

Long Wanqing felt slightly startled. “Fortunately, we did not bring you.”

“What? While you don’t understand my singing, the previous manor lord definitely would. Unfortunately, the previous manor lord passed away. I initially wanted to go to his funeral to pay my final respects to his body and sing a song that I specially wrote for him,” Ensnaring Performance said, feeling depressed.

Everyone: “…”

“Fortunately, we did not bring you,” Long Wanqing sighed softly.

During the previous manor lord’s funeral, Yun Mo and the others had cried themselves dry. A sorrowful atmosphere had filled the entire hall. If Ensnaring Performance suddenly sang Little Radish…no one dared to imagine how terrible the scene would have been. 

“Gu Hai, fortunately, you did not bring him.” Venerable Liu Nian nodded.

Gu Hai nodded. “Indeed, Ensnaring Performance has gone off the right path already.”

Ensnaring Performance showed a depressed expression. He went to the side and started cursing everyone.

------

The flying ship moved in the direction Ensnaring Performance pointed out, making a big detour before eventually reaching the edge of the battlefield, where the two adversaries were based in the north and the south.

There was a vast city to the south of the battlefield, one even larger than Silver Moon City.

Surging yellow blessings floated about the city like a golden sea covering the city’s sky.

“Are those blessings? There is so much of it?” Gu Hai exclaimed.

Compared to the blessings before the group, the Han Royal Dynasty’s blessings were pitifully few. One could see only one or two wisps of blessings in the Han Royal Dynasty’s sky.

On the other hand, the blessings before the group were like a cloud sea, looking as vast as the sea.

“The Divine Foundation Royal Dynasty moved its capital, and this is the new capital, Divine Foundation City. The blessings are very dense. Indeed, the Divine Foundation Royal Dynasty’s citizens support the Divine Foundation Royal Dynasty,” Venerable Liu Nian marveled.

When the north city gate opened, a large number of soldiers rushed out to battle.

A man wearing imperial robes stood on the top of a city gate tower. As that man held the railing, he looked coldly towards the distant north.

“Is that Huangfu Chaoge?” Long Wanqing’s eyes lit up.

“Is this the decisive battle?” Mu Chenfeng exclaimed.

A large army filled the mountains to the north. The banners on the mountains had a large “Lu” character on them.

The top of the mountain was already leveled. A middle-aged man surrounded by soldiers could be seen there. That man had a small goatee and a rectangular face. He wore embroidered robes and looked incredibly awe-inspiring.

Experts of all sorts surrounded this man.

The middle-aged man sat on a throne, gently caressing the qilin head carved on the end of the armrest as he looked coldly at Huangfu Chaoge on the distant city gate tower.

“Duke Lu Yang?” Long Wanqing raised her eyebrows.

“That is Duke Lu Yan?” Gu Hai asked.

There was a vast space in the battlefield between the two sides, with many soldiers fighting each other.

At the same time, Duke Lu Yang dispatched eight hundred gigantic dragons to the battlefield.

“Roar! Roar! Roar!”

The dragons roared, radiating a strong aura. Everywhere they went, dark clouds filled the sky. It looked like they would crush the Divine Foundation Royal Dynasty’s army in an instant.

Rumble…!

The ground suddenly gave off loud sounds.

Mountains rose from the ground and roared. “Hah! Hah!”

As each mountain emerged, they slowly revealed themselves to be human-shaped. Countless rocks gathered together strangely, forming humanoid stone monsters.

“What are those?” Ensnaring Performance exclaimed from the side.

“foundation rock golems!” Mu Chenfeng exclaimed.

“foundation rock golems? What do you mean? Those stone humans? They are hundreds of meters tall!” Ensnaring Performance exclaimed.

“foundation rock golems are an elemental type spirit. They are the national beast of the Divine Foundation Royal Dynasty, an earth attribute spirit,” Mu Chenfeng explained.

“Roar!”

“Hah!”

Boom! Boom! Boom!

The colossal foundation rock golems were like towering giants. They clashed with the dragons, an intense battle between two ferocious beasts breaking out. Sand and rocks flew everywhere, turning the sky dark.

The soldiers in the warzone had to stop fighting, leaving the battlefield to the dragons and the foundation rock golems.

Boom! Boom! Boom!

The surroundings trembled as a result of the intense battle.

Huangfu Chaoge watched from the city gate tower as the foundation rock golems fought, worry evident in his eyes.

On the mountain, Duke Lu Yan watched the dragons fight, appearing sullen.

“These foundation rock golems are very strange!” Gu Hai exclaimed.

Boom!

Gu Hai saw a gigantic dragon smash a foundation rock golem to pieces.

Click-clack! Click-clack!

The shattered rocks suddenly gathered together, reforming the shattered golem. The foundation rock golem came back to life and charged into the battlefield again.

“Roar!”

Boom!

A sin dragon cried miserably as a foundation rock golem crushed its head. However, the sin dragons could not come back to life like the foundation rock golems did. As it fell to the ground, its blood splattered all over the place.

“I don’t know how the foundation rock golems came to be. In any case, such kinds of elemental spirits are the most problematic. They are impenetrable, and their bodies are extremely tough. Even if you shatter them, they can quickly come back to life. Many other dynasties envy the Divine Foundation Royal Dynasty’s national beast.” Mu Chenfeng smiled bitterly.

Far in the distance, Duke Lu Yang appeared to be somewhat impatient already. He turned his head and looked at a white-clad man beside him.

That man nodded and took a step forward, then soared into the sky.

Whoosh!

The white-clad man stood in the sky, looking at Huangfu Chaoge coldly. Then, he extended his right hand and swung it down in the direction of Divine Foundation City.

Buzz!

An enormous saber suddenly appeared in the sky, looking like the sky chopping down on Divine Foundation City.

A loud sound rang out as the white-clad man shot a saber qi at Divine Foundation City.

Rumble…!

This saber strike slashed the ground as it surged towards Divine Foundation City. It left a thirty-kilometer-long gorge on the ground, blasting countless shattered rocks into the air. 

Boom!

Suddenly, a blue barrier appeared at Divine Foundation City. When the saber qi crashed into it, the barrier shook, threatening to break.

“Huangfu Chaoge, are you going to continue hiding in the city?” the white-clad man shouted coldly.

Not far away, the faces of Gu Hai and the others sank. Who was this white-clad man? That earlier saber qi was ridiculously ferocious, splitting the ground for thirty kilometers.

“That is Crown Prince Ao Shun.” Long Wanqing frowned.

“Oh? Crown Prince Ao Shun?” Gu Hai echoed.

“Rather, it should be the former dragon race crown prince, Ao Shun. Unfortunately, he had committed an offense and got branded a sin dragon. He is no longer the crown prince. Now, Ao Shun is being managed by Duke Lu Yang,” Long Wanqing said with a frown.

“Ao Shun?” Gu Hai looked at the white-clad man with a ferocious and baleful expression.

“Ao Shun seems to be a middle-stage Heavenly Palace Realm expert, yet, he is challenging Huangfu Chaoge? Huangfu Chaoge is only a Nascent Soul Realm cultivator. Can Huangfu Chaoge deal with this?” Venerable Liu Nian frowned.

“Huangfu Chaoge is only a Nascent Soul Realm cultivator?” Gu Hai felt slightly startled.

Can a Nascent Soul Realm cultivator hold his own against a Heavenly Palace Realm cultivator?

Long Wanqing waved her hand and got her men to hide the flying ship in a valley to avoid discovery.

Far in the distance, Ao Shun challenged Huangfu Chaoge.

Huangfu Chaoge remained silent for a while before he suddenly spoke, “People of the Divine Foundation Royal Dynasty, we are incapable, drawing over this huge disaster. However, we do not regret it. Now, we would like to fight off the invaders, but our strength is limited. If you would like to lend us a hand, please raise your right hand and lend me all your strength. If you think that we are unreasonable, you can just ignore us. I sincerely ask all of you for help!”

Buzz!

Right after Huangfu Chaoge finished speaking, the blessings cloud sea in the sky shook. It seemed to be sending the message to every citizen through the previously gathered blessings.

“Your Majesty, I am willing to lend you a hand!”

“Your Majesty, please use my strength!”

“Your Majesty, we will always support you!”

Shouts came from the various places of the Divine Foundation Royal Dynasty.

Gu Hai saw countless citizens suddenly raising their right hands in a nearby town. Then, yellow light seemed to come out of those hands. After that, these people seemed sapped of energy, as they sank to the ground weakly.

Similar things happened all over the place. Nearly all the citizens raised their hands, and their energy came out of their hands and headed for the Divine Foundation Royal Dynasty’s blessings.

Rumble… 

A whirlpool formed above the blessings cloud sea, gathering the energy from the citizens. Then, all this energy poured into Huangfu Chaoge’s body.

Rumble… 

A berserk energy storm appeared around him.

After gathering the energy of everyone in the Divine Foundation Royal Dynasty, Huangfu Chaoge soared into the air.

Then, Huangfu Chaoge thrust his right hand and punched at Ao Shun.

“Duke Lu Yang, if you want to destroy my Divine Foundation Royal Dynasty, come yourself. What is the point of sending out insignificant worms? Hah!” Huangfu Chaoge roared.

“Hah!”

Ao Shun punched while roaring, rage blazing in his eyes.

Boom!
