CSG - Chapter 3044: A Clash at the Apex

On the Delight Plane, in the forbidden grounds of the imperial palace of the Cloudsurge Empire, the Rain Abbess was dressed in a violet dress, dignified and graceful. She stood in a sea of flowers alone, dazing out.

“Abbess, this is what you asked for. I’ve already got everyone to gather it all.” At this moment, a burly, middle-aged man walked over. He delivered the Space Ring in his hand to the Rain Abbess.

The middle-aged man’s presence was extremely powerful as the Laws of Strength coiled around his surroundings. He was one of the Grand Prime ancestors of the Cloudsurge Empire, known as the Barbarian Emperor!

However, despite being an ancestor, the Barbarian Emperor still showed undisguised respect towards the Rain Abbess.

The Rain Abbess did not look back, nor did she even glance at the Barbarian Emperor. With a gentle wave of her hand, the Space Ring suddenly flew into her hand. She did not say a single word the entire time as if the Grand Prime ancestor behind her right now was absolutely nothing.

The Barbarian Emperor could not get angry at all when faced with the Rain Abbess’s disregard. Instead, he treated it like normal. Right when he was about to leave, he hesitated slightly before asking carefully, “Abbess, are you so worried because of the Martial Soul lineage? Has Hun Zang of the Martial Soul lineage angered you?”

The Rain Abbess sighed gloomily and said rather helplessly, “Yes, it’s Hun Zang. He’s made me extremely angry. Barbarian Emperor, tell me, do you have any ideas about how to make Hun Zang remain here forever?”

As soon as she said that, the Rain Abbess suddenly remembered the Barbarian Emperor’s personality, which made her shake her head secretly. She smiled self-deprecatingly. “Telling you about this is completely pointless. Barbarian Emperor, you don’t have any more business here. You can go.”

The Barbarian Emperor immediately became dissatisfied with this result. He said stubbornly, “Abbess, you must never underestimate me. At the very least, I have a very good idea to deal with your current situation.”

“Oh? Let’s hear it then!” The Rain Abbess glanced over slightly in interest.

“I can pay a visit to the Martial Soul Mountain immediately and capture Hun Zang. I’ll break his limbs and cripple his cultivation. That way, he can never leave here-” However, before the Barbarian Emperor could even finish, a wave of surging energy suddenly erupted, slamming against him heavily.

With a thud, the Barbarian Emperor was launched away, vanishing from the forbidden grounds in the blink of an eye.

At the same time, the current emperor of the Cloudsurge Empire, Ye Yizhan, had assembled the imperial court and was managing the affairs of the emperor.

But at this moment, a great rumble rang out. The entire imperial palace began to shake violently. A huge hole was forcefully ripped open in the extremely tough building.

A figure shot into the imperial palace like a cannonball, smashing through many pillars before finally rolling to one corner in horrible shape.

Immediately, the imperial court became filled with dust. Rubble was littered everywhere.

“Enemy attack! Enemy attack!”

“Who’s so bold? How dare they attack the imperial palace of our Cloudsurge Empire?”

 ……

… 

The imperial court immediately descended into disorder, and the presences of numerous Primordial realm experts rose up from various locations in the palace, rapidly gathering towards the hall.

By now, the figure who had fallen to the corner of the room had stood up as well. He brushed off the dust from his clothes and said without any concern for the panicking officials and generals in the hall, “Don’t be alarmed. It’s me!”

“Ah! I- i- i- it’s the Barbarian Emperor!”

“T- t- t- the Barbarian Emperor! W- w- w- why is it you, sir?”

“W- what’s going on?”

When they made out the figure, all of the officials in the court widened their eyes. Their faces were filled with disbelief.

“I- it’s fine, it’s fine. Go back to what you were doing.” The Barbarian Emperor waved his hand at everyone rather awkwardly before scurrying back to the forbidden grounds in sorry shape.

“Abbess, h- have I misspoken?” 

In the forbidden grounds, the Barbarian Emperor stood behind the Rain Abbess in an aggrieved manner.

“Barbarian Emperor, bear in mind that you can provoke me, but you must never oppose Hun Zang.” The Rain Abbess’ voice seemed rather cold now.

“Yes, yes, yes. I will definitely commit the abbess’s orders to heart,” the Barbarian Emperor said with a long face, but he thought to himself inside, “Even if I were a hundred times bolder, I’d never provoke you, abbess. Hun Zang of the Martial Soul lineage is clearly a much easier target.

“You can go!” The Rain Abbess obviously had no idea what the Barbarian Emperor was thinking. She waved her hand at the Barbarian Emperor, but at this exact moment, her eyes suddenly narrowed, and she looked up at the vast sea of stars beyond the Delight Plane. Her gaze was extremely sharp.

“Empyrean Demon Lord, I was just worried about not being able to find you. You’ve actually delivered yourself to me. Perfect timing. It’s about time I settled the debts that you left behind when you attacked my Cloudsurge Empire in the past.” The Rain Abbess snorted coldly. Her voice was bone-chillingly cold, filled with killing intent.

In the next moment, the Rain Abbess’ figure suddenly vanished.

In an extremely distant region of space from the Delight Plane, Mo Tianyun was dressed in white clothes as he hovered among the stars with his hands behind his back, gazing at the palm-sized Delight Plane calmly.

With a flash, the Rain Abbess suddenly appeared there. Her face was frosty, and her gaze was frigid. The killing intent she gave off was so strong that even the nearby stars shook and twinkled as a result.

“Empyrean Demon Lord, I didn’t expect you to still have the courage to come out. I thought you’d spend the rest of your life hidden away in some dark corner.” The Rain Abbess stared at Mo Tianyun sharply. Her voice was icy-cold.

Mo Tianyun remained calm. He smiled at the Rain Abbess. “Rain Abbess, there doesn’t seem to be any irreconcilable grievances between the two of us, so do you have to act like you’re out for my life the moment we meet?”

The Rain Abbess snorted coldly and ground her teeth. “No irreconcilable grievances? In the past, the Empyrean Demon Cult under your command attacked my Cloudsurge Empire, leaving us with immeasurable losses. Numerous great elders died to the hands of your Empyrean Demon Cult. Is this grievance still not big enough?”

“And the Innate Orchid of Five Elements I planted in the forbidden grounds. Innate Orchids of Five Elements have always been extremely rare items in the Saints’ World, not to mention that my Innate Orchid of Five Elements came from a Xuanhuang Microcosm, so it was contaminated with a hint of Xuanhuang Qi. As such, its value was even more immeasurable. It had also been stolen by your Empyrean Demon Cult.”

“The Innate Spiritual Mud and Liquid I used to nurture the Innate Orchid of Five Elements were both contaminated with Xuanhuang Qi, yet in the end, your Empyrean Demon Cult stole all of it.”

“First, your Empyrean Demon Cult leaves my Coudsurge Emperor with severe losses, and then they steal my precious heavenly resources. Is this grievance not big enough?”

The Rain Abbess listed out the various deeds the Empyrean Demon Cult had committed in the past one by one. The fury and killing intent within her became greater and greater too.

“Empyrean Demon Lord, this debt can only be repaid with your blood!” The Rain Abbess roared furiously. Her presence erupted like great waves as the power of rain and clouds immediately enveloped her. She directly took action, launching a devastating strike.

On top of that, the moment she launched her attack, the bronze scale on the Rain Abbess’s neck immediately vanished, allowing her presence to directly reach a whole new level. Her cultivation had directly broken through the limits of the Fifth Heavenly Layer, reaching the Sixth Heavenly Layer.

Moreover, it did not just seem like she had reached the Sixth Heavenly Layer recently. Her presence was so strong that it was already equivalent to the peak of the Sixth Heavenly Layer.

The Rain Abbess also knew about the battle feats of the Empyrean Demon Lord, having destroyed the Hefeng clan of the Ice Pole Plane single-handedly. As such, she did not dare to underestimate him at all with her attack this time. She unleashed the first seal without any hesitation.

With the first seal unleashed, the Rain Abbess’s cultivation had reached the Sixth Heavenly Layer, but her battle prowess had even surpassed the Icecloud Founding Ancestor from the Ice Pole Plane!

Without any exaggeration, the Rain Abbess at this very moment still was not a Seventh Heavenly Layer expert yet, but she was no weaker than one!

With battle prowess on par with the Seventh Heavenly Layer, her attacks were obviously devastating. Unable to withstand this great power, the space immediately shattered. Countless planets collapsed into dust.

The moment the Rain Abbess struck, she annihilated an entire region of space.

Mo Tianyun was unfazed by her attack. He remained calm and composed the entire time. The power of slaughter just wrapped around his body as he threw a punch.
