EIF - Book 04 Chapter 087: Heavy Snow Falling for Five Hundred Thousand Kilometers

He snatched the saber?

This thought struck nearly everyone in the city. Then, they rejoiced.

When five million Divine Blood Army soldiers marched on Major Metropolitan City, nearly everyone despaired. The Slaughter Heavenly Emperor’s awakening fanned that despair to a peak. Just his aura alone made all the citizens lose heart.

However, Imperial Emperor Xi Yu snatched Blood Prison, giving everyone a mental jolt. In the end, Imperial Emperor Xi Yu obtained Blood Prison. Even if he had an advantage, the result was what mattered.

Mo Yike boarded a flying ship and headed quickly for the city.

The Bat Ancestor goggled. He had known that Xi Yu was very incredible. However, the earlier scene still greatly shocked him. How strong exactly was Imperial Emperor Xi Yu?

The Chang Clan, the Xi Clan, and Qin Zibai retreated. Gu Hai also scattered Zhang Sanfeng. Then, he took out a flying ship and headed for the city.

Everyone’s attention focused on Imperial Emperor Xi Yu and the Slaughter Heavenly Emperor.

The two exchanged looks from afar.

One had a blood mist surrounding him, radiating a bloody aura.

The other had ice revolving around him, giving off cold energy.

The Slaughter Heavenly Emperor showed an icy expression. “There is no more Xi Clan? The Xi Clan? Which generation are you? We could already tell that the Xi Clan had disloyal intentions. That’s why we left you here to guard the place. Hah! Hahahaha! To think that you really rebelled?!”

Imperial Emperor Xi Yu looked at the Slaughter Heavenly Emperor with a cold gaze. “Slaughter Heavenly Emperor? Back then, you made the wrong decision.”

“Huh?” The Slaughter Heavenly Emperor’s expression turned gloomy.

“It has been six thousand years. The world is no longer the same as it was six thousand years ago!” Imperial Emperor Xi Yu said indifferently.

“How audacious! How dare you be so rude to His Holy Eminence?” the First Battalion commander shouted furiously.

Boom!

The First Battalion commander immediately spurred his horse forward. His figure flashed, heading for the Great Sigh Palace Hall.

The First Battalion commander was a Middle Heavenly Palace Realm cultivator. He moved swiftly, arriving shortly after his furious shout.

He swung the saber in his hand at Imperial Emperor Xi Yu.

The powerful aura of a Middle Heavenly Palace cultivator formed a storm as he charged at Imperial Emperor Xi Yu, aiming to chop him down in one stroke for Imperial Emperor Xi Yu’s earlier rudeness.

Boom!

The saber strike appeared ferocious, like it could destroy the Yuan Imperial Dynasty’s palace in one strike. Countless attendants in the palace were horrified.

Imperial Emperor Xi Yu showed a cold expression.

Humph!

After letting out a cold snort, Imperial Emperor Xi Yu swung Blood Prison.

Boom!

When Imperial Emperor Xi Yu swung the saber, it traced a crimson arc of light, immediately and easily breaking the First Battalion commander’s saber aura and continuing towards the First Battalion commander.

“What?” The First Battalion commander’s expression changed.

Blood Prison easily shattered the First Battalion commander’s saber and arrived before his face, poised to bisect him.

“Oh no!” The distant horse prime, Ma Sanyan, suddenly glared.

Buzz!

The third eye on Ma Sanyan’s forehead suddenly opened. A golden beam of light shot out and instantly clashed with Blood Prison’s edge, blocking the saber.

“Humph! No one we wanted to kill has ever survived!” Imperial Emperor Xi Yu’s eyes turned cold.

Boom!

Ma Sanyan’s golden light exploded, and the saber chopped the First Battalion commander in half. A dazzling crimson light forced the surrounding people to shut their eyes.

Bang!

The First Battalion commander exploded.

“General!” countless soldiers of the First Battalion cried out.

“How audacious!” The Slaughter Heavenly Emperor’s expression turned cold.

At this moment, the third eye on Ma Sanyan strangely leaked blood.

“You have already gained complete control of Blood Prison?” Ma Sanyan exclaimed in wide-eyed shock.

Shing!

Imperial Emperor Xi Yu put away the Blood Prison Saber as he looked coldly at the Slaughter Heavenly Emperor.

“Slaughter Heavenly Emperor? Yes, you were incredible when you were at your peak. However, you currently are only left with a soul body. This is our Yuan Nation. If you dare to proceed, we will chop you down!” Imperial Emperor Xi Yu said with a cold look in his eyes.

The Slaughter Heavenly Emperor narrowed his eyes slightly as he stared at Imperial Emperor Xi Yu.

“Blood Prison is like fire. Did you use the ice Dao to suppress Blood Prison’s fire? Hahahahaha! Excellent! Excellent! There had yet to be anyone who dared to be so audacious with us. Imperial Emperor Xi Yu? Now that the Xi Clan has gained a talented descendant, you have forgotten about us? Kill us? Humph! Let’s see how you are going to kill us today!” the Slaughter Heavenly Emperor snorted coldly.

Then, he took a step forward.

Buzz!

Suddenly, a crimson light encased the area within hundreds of thousands of kilometers. A boundless blood mist spread in all directions. While ice covered Major Metropolitan City, the blood mist seemed to surround the ice-covered Major Metropolitan City.

“The Xi Clan? It looks like there is no more reason for you to continue existing,” the Slaughter Heavenly Emperor said in an icy tone.

As the Slaughter Heavenly Emperor spoke, he extended his hand and pressed down.

Boom!

Suddenly, millions upon millions of crimson saber qi appeared within the blood mist world, chopping down at Major Metropolitan City. The sea of saber qi surged over, trying to obliterate Major Metropolitan City.

Imperial Emperor Xi Yu’s eyes turned cold. He stomped on the ground and swung Blood Prison at the sky.

Boom!

Countless white saber qi shot skyward while Blood Prison slashed towards the Slaughter Heavenly Emperor’s right palm.

Then, the manifested palm and the manifested saber clashed in the air.

Boom!

A thunderous report rang out, causing countless citizens to cover their ears and roll on the ground in pain. The sound was overly intense; close to half of the buildings in Major Metropolitan City collapsed.

Imperial Emperor Xi Yu showed a ferocious expression on his face. The manifested saber succeeded in blocking the Slaughter Heavenly Emperor’s manifested palm. The white saber qi also managed to block the crimson saber qi.

Boom!

Imperial Emperor Xi Yu and the Slaughter Heavenly Emperor both exuded tempestuous auras.

“You are using our saber to deal with us? You are seeking death!” The Slaughter Heavenly Emperor showed a ferocious expression.

“We already said earlier: this is no longer six thousand years ago; it is no longer your time. This is our Yuan Imperial Dynasty. The Slaughter Heavenly Dynasty is no more; it has long since become history. You are now only a soul body. To think you want to fight us as a soul body!” Imperial Emperor Xi Yu roared ferociously.

Boom!

The force that the two put into their attacks escalated wildly.

“Roar!”

“Roar!”

The two blessings dragons in the sky roared as well, not backing off. They even clashed, trying to bite each other.

Rumble…! Rumble…!

Neither side yielded. The two’s expressions grew more and more twisted.

No victor emerged. However, the expressions of the experts in Gu Hai’s manor in the distance changed wildly.

“Imperial Emperor Xi Yu managed to block the Slaughter Heavenly Emperor?” Long Shenwu’s expression changed.

“This is impossible. How did Imperial Emperor Xi Yu grow this strong so quickly?” Gongyang Sheng’s expression changed.

Rumble…!

Gales swept through the place as heavy snow flew. The two powerful experts remained in a stalemate.

Gu Hai now returned.

“Brother-in-Law, you were very incredible earlier!” Long Wanyu said excitedly, rushing over when she saw Gu Hai.

Gu Hai smiled bitterly.

Incredible?

I am far from comparable to those two sovereigns there.

“The Xi Clan? Xi Yu? You bastard, you cultivated that forbidden technique?” The Slaughter Heavenly Emperor’s expression suddenly changed.

“Heavy Snow Falling for Five Hundred Thousand Kilometers!” Imperial Emperor Xi Yu shouted.

Suddenly, Blood Prison gave off a dazzling, white light.

A bright, white light appeared where the two sovereigns were. The white light was so piercing that nobody could keep their eyes open.

Boom!

While everyone was blinded, a loud report came from the distance.

A high wind howled, and many more buildings in Major Metropolitan City collapsed. Several floating islands crashed to the ground.

Major Metropolitan City instantly ended up in a sorry state, filled with countless sorrowful cries.

Buzz!

Then, the white light vanished.

Imperial Emperor Xi Yu and the Slaughter Heavenly Emperor had parted.

Now, one stood at the Great Sigh Palace Hall’s entrance, and the other stood on a carriage. It was as though they had not fought.

However, Major Metropolitan City lay in ruins. Nearly all the buildings had collapsed. The city wall had also been reduced to rubble.

Many citizens suffered severe injuries from the shock waves.

The two sovereigns stood where they were, looking at each other. Then, the Slaughter Heavenly Emperor took a deep breath and shouted with a sullen expression, “Divine Blood Army, let’s go!”

Nearly everyone’s expression changed.

The Slaughter Heavenly Emperor said he is leaving?

“Yes, Your Holy Eminence!” the many Divine Blood Army soldiers shouted in response and quickly gathered at the Slaughter Heavenly Emperor’s location.

Rumble…!

The army left, heading west.

Was there a need to guess the result?

Clearly, Imperial Emperor Xi Yu won during their earlier clash.

“That is the Slaughter Heavenly Emperor!” Li Shenji said as his expression changed dramatically.

Imperial Emperor Xi Yu managed to force the Slaughter Heavenly Emperor to retreat with one saber strike?

The five million Divine Blood Army soldiers withdrew to the west.

The Slaughter Heavenly Emperor remained standing on his carriage, staring at Imperial Emperor Xi Yu, who stood at the Great Sigh Palace Hall’s entrance. A deep hatred appeared in the Slaughter Heavenly Emperor’s gaze, clearly saying that this was just a temporary retreat and he would be back soon.

The crimson blessings of the Slaughter Heavenly Dynasty in the sky left together with the Slaughter Heavenly Emperor, slowly flowing far away.

Imperial Emperor Xi Yu remained standing at the Great Sigh Palace Hall’s entrance, coldly watching the Slaughter Heavenly Emperor leave. His eyes shone with pride. Previously, the Xi Clan was just an unfavored subject under the Slaughter Heavenly Dynasty.

Now, the Xi Clan’s Xi Yu had gained independence and beaten the Slaughter Heavenly Emperor into retreat.

So what if the Slaughter Heavenly Dynasty returned? I still defeated it today!

After grieving, the citizens now worshiped Imperial Emperor Xi Yu even more.

“Long live Your Reverence! May Your Reverence live for ten thousand years!”

“Long live the Yuan Nation! May the Yuan Nation last for ten thousand years!”

The citizens cried out excitedly. It turns out that His Reverence is so incredible. My Yuan Nation’s emperor is so powerful?

After the Slaughter Heavenly Dynasty’s army vanished, Imperial Emperor Xi Yu flung his sleeves out and returned slowly to the Great Sigh Palace Hall.

However, the excited cries of the citizens did not stop.

Their houses collapsed? This would be a great disaster for ordinary people. However, cultivators could rebuild quickly. With Imperial Emperor Xi Yu protecting Major Metropolitan City, who could win against them?

The floating island at Gu Hai’s manor had also crashed. Everyone now stood on a mountain summit as they watched Imperial Emperor Xi Yu return to the Great Sigh Palace Hall. They could not calm down for a long time.

At this moment, Gongyang Sheng suddenly raised his eyebrows. He turned around, surveying the ruined Major Metropolitan City.

Major Metropolitan City had become separated into eighty-one distinct zones.

“Mister Gongyang and everyone, the Yuan Imperial Dynasty is now a dangerous place. We should leave the Yuan Nation as soon as we can,” Gu Hai said as he looked at everyone.

“No. I’m not leaving. Hah! Hahaha! It’s not that I don’t want to leave, but I can’t leave. The Eighty-One Palace Diagram? No, the Nine-by-Nine Sun Sealing Ritual Array? It turned out that a Nine-by-Nine Sun Sealing Ritual Array is beneath Major Metropolitan City?” Gongyang Sheng’s expression changed.

“What?” Everyone looked at Gongyang Sheng in confusion.

“The Divine Blood Army’s souls were sealed to the west of the city. However, Imperial Emperor Xi Yu changed the structure of Major Metropolitan City. If not for it being reduced to rubble, I would not have noticed it. Is this a Nine-by-Nine Sun Sealing Ritual Array? What a way to use a city to conceal it! No wonder the Divine Blood Army wanted to slaughter the entire city earlier. It turns out that they want what is beneath the Nine-by-Nine Sun Sealing Ritual Array?” A glint flashed in Gongyang Sheng’s eyes.

“The Slaughter Heavenly Dynasty’s treasury is beneath?” Long Shenwu’s eyes suddenly narrowed as he guessed something.

“The bodies of the Slaughter Heavenly Emperor and the others are sealed beneath?” Ye Shenzhen’s expression changed.

“The entire accumulations of a heavenly dynasty are sealed beneath?” Li Shenji’s eyes lit up with excitement.
