EIF - Book 04 Chapter 168: Strongest Enchanted Treasure in the World

The Slaughter Heavenly Emperor lost?

The expressions of the Chaoge City citizens, officials, Chang Ming, and Venerable Liu Nian changed. If the Slaughter Heavenly Emperor lost, would the Han Royal Dynasty be finished?

Imperial Emperor Xi Yu stood in the sky, holding Blood Prison. He showed a ferocious expression as he stared at the large crater below.

Inside the pit, the Slaughter Heavenly Emperor had already climbed back to his feet.

The Life Executioner Saber in his hand was fine, but many saber wounds marked his body. His clothes were tattered.

The Slaughter Heavenly Emperor turned his head and looked skyward.

“Heaven Punished Stone? It is indeed a good saber.” Imperial Emperor Xi Yu narrowed his eyes as he stared at the Life Executioner Saber.

Despite the great destructive power, the Life Executioner Saber was actually fine.


Roaring furiously, the Slaughter Heavenly Emperor soared into the air and instantly arrived before Imperial Emperor Xi Yu. Then, he raised his saber to attack.

“Humph! Our Blood Prison is no longer the same as before. It is already completely unsealed and significantly stronger. Now, the saber carries the conception of massacre, not something that you can block. Too bad none of the top sixteen ancient treasures is here. If they were, the rankings of the top sixteen ancient treasures would change!” Imperial Emperor Xi Yu sneered as he chopped down again.

“Fifth Cycle!”


Like earlier, the sky turned dark when the two experts crossed blades again. The Life Executioner Saber and Blood Prison clashed, shaking space once more.

“He must win! He must win!” the countless citizens and officials prayed anxiously.

Blood Prison unleashed a bright, crimson light and knocked the Slaughter Heavenly Emperor to the ground again. Like before, the ground shook when he landed.


Another large crater appeared.

The countless citizens and officials despaired. Is he undefeatable in the end?


“Your Majesty, what should we do?” Chang Ming appeared anxious.

With Blood Prison, Imperial Emperor Xi Yu held the upper hand. Even the Fifth Cycle could not overcome Blood Prison’s ferocity.

“Blood Prison? No wonder. No wonder the Slaughter Heavenly Emperor was so powerful six millennia ago. He took the path of killing, and equipped with the unsealed Blood Prison, he had few rivals in the world,” Venerable Liu Nian said with an unsightly expression.

“However, Blood Prison is now in Imperial Emperor Xi Yu’s hand!” Chang Ming said anxiously.

The Slaughter Heavenly Emperor climbed back out of the crater in an even sorrier state than before. Many bleeding wounds already riddled his body. Clearly, he would be destroyed if this continued.

However, the Slaughter Heavenly Emperor stood up over and over again to charge at Imperial Emperor Xi Yu anew.

Imperial Emperor Xi Yu swung his saber repeatedly, each attack not only maintaining the same might but even growing stronger.

“Slaughter Heavenly Emperor? Humph! You are a pretty good grinding stone. The longer I fight with you, the more ferocious Blood Prison becomes. Come, bring it on. Use your Fifth Cycle and continue fighting!” Imperial Emperor Xi Yu roared with scarlet eyes.


“Your Majesty, hurry! While that Slaughter Heavenly Emperor is blocking Imperial Emperor Xi Yu, we should quickly bring the citizens away,” one of the officials advised anxiously.

“Your Majesty, we should leave quickly!”

“Your Majesty, the Slaughter Heavenly Emperor cannot last for much longer. We cannot wait any longer!”

The officials felt incredibly anxious.

Now, everyone saw signs of defeat. The Slaughter Heavenly Emperor’s injuries increased while Imperial Emperor Xi Yu remained at his peak. If this dragged on, no one could leave.

However, Gu Hai sighed softly, “Indeed, it is still too much for us to deal with Imperial Emperor Xi Yu.”

“Your Majesty?” Chang Ming said anxiously.

After sighing, Gu Hai took a deep breath and said, “Prince Shenwu, did the Qian Heavenly Emperor send you to Chaoge City just to observe?”

“Huh?” This slightly startled the officials and citizens.

On a distant mountain summit, Qin Yun’s expression changed.

It was not just Qin Yun. The expressions of Long Shenwu and Long Sanqian, who were in a distant mountain forest, changed as well.

“Gu Hai? He knows?” Long Sanqian exclaimed in shock, his eyes opening wide.

Long Shenwu showed an uncertain expression on his face.

Imperial Emperor Xi Yu had already sent the Slaughter Heavenly Emperor flying several times by now. However, Gu Hai fixed his gaze in Long Shenwu’s direction.

Long Shenwu’s eyelids twitched wildly as he took a deep breath. “Let’s go, then.”

Long Shenwu, Long Sanqian, and their subordinates quickly flew to Gu Hai’s floating island.

Gu Hai waved and opened the ritual array, letting the party in.

“Prince Shenwu?” Venerable Liu Nian exclaimed.

“Greetings, Prince Shenwu!” Gu Hai said with a faint smile.

Long Shenwu narrowed his eyes at Gu Hai. “Gu Hai? How did you know I came?”

“Prince Shenwu, let’s not bother with how I know. What’s wrong? I’m sure the Qian Heavenly Emperor did not send you here just to observe, right?” Gu Hai said with a faint smile.

Long Shenwu stared at Gu Hai.


A loud report rang out in the sky as Imperial Emperor Xi Yu sent the Slaughter Heavenly Emperor crashing into the ground again.

However, the Slaughter Heavenly Emperor did not soar back into the sky this time. Instead, he flew to Gu Hai’s side.

Long Shenwu’s face sank; he seemed to have his guard up against the Slaughter Heavenly Emperor.

However, the Slaughter Heavenly Emperor ignored Long Shenwu and just walked over to Gu Hai.

“I underestimated Imperial Emperor Xi Yu’s strength this time. Prince Shenwu, please carry out the Qian Heavenly Emperor’s instructions for you now,” Gu Hai said gravely.

“You want me to make a move?” Long Shenwu’s face sank.

“Gu Hai, you want my father to deal with Imperial Emperor Xi Yu? Are you trying to kill my father?” Long Sanqian scowled.

Gu Hai looked at Long Sanqian. After taking a deep breath, he said, “I don’t know what the Qian Heavenly Emperor instructed you to do, but I have already anticipated this situation. I’m sure that the Qian Heavenly Emperor anticipated it as well. However, because my information was not complete, I did not expect Imperial Emperor Xi Yu to be this strong. I have limited knowledge of Imperial Emperor Xi Yu’s strength, unlike the Qian Heavenly Emperor, who has lived a long time. He must know exactly how strong Imperial Emperor Xi Yu is. Since the Qian Heavenly Emperor sent you here, you must have the means to deal with Imperial Emperor Xi Yu. Prince Shenwu, am I right?”

Long Sanqian appeared somewhat shocked as he turned his head to look at Long Shenwu. What exactly did His Holy Eminence instruct my father to do?

Long Shenwu stared at Gu Hai for a while, his eyelids twitching. Eventually, he revealed a faint, cold smile and laughed, “Hah! Hahahaha! Excellent Gu Hai! How excellent that you anticipated this! You even anticipated that His Holy Eminence sent me to help you and that I could deal with Imperial Emperor Xi Yu?”

“Prince Shenwu, please!” Gu Hai gestured in invitation, not answering directly.

“Humph!” Long Shenwu snorted coldly.

High in the sky, Imperial Emperor Xi Yu looked at the floating island.

“Long Shenwu? How dare you come and block us?” Imperial Emperor Xi Yu narrowed his eyes.

Long Shenwu looked skyward coldly. “Imperial Emperor Xi Yu? Why don’t you charge to Heavenly Court City if you have such courage? Instead, you came to an insignificant royal dynasty to flaunt your strength?”

Imperial Emperor Xi Yu smiled coldly. “We do not need you to tell us what to do. We give you a chance now. Leave now, or we will kill you as well.”

“Give it a try, then!” Long Shenwu sneered.

Imperial Emperor Xi Yu narrowed his eyes. “Since you are not leaving, then never mind. Humph!”

As Imperial Emperor Xi Yu spoke, he raised Blood Prison. With a ferocious scowl, he swung the weapon.

The moment Blood Prison swung down, a crimson light filled the world. The overwhelming blood sea seemed to pour down from the sky, covering both sky and land in a vast sea of blood.

Previously, no one had experienced this attack when they saw it. Now that they faced it head-on, they found countless vengeful ghosts gnashing their teeth within the blood sea pouring down.

“Infinite Blood Prison!” Imperial Emperor Xi Yu roared.


That saber strike seemed to carry the heavenly fate, wanting to destroy everything in the world.

This utterly frightened countless Han Nation officials.

“It’s over!” Chang Ming showed dismay on his face.

Venerable Liu Nian pressed his palms together, feeling incredibly anxious.

Behind the Slaughter Heavenly Emperor, Gu Hai showed a cold look in his eyes.

The Slaughter Heavenly Emperor waited, standing ready. If Long Shenwu could not block this destructive saber strike, Gu Hai could only use the Slaughter Heavenly Emperor as a final shield.

Long Sanqian’s expression changed as he turned his head to look at Long Shenwu.

Long Shenwu slowly slit his forehead, and the skin seemed to tear apart as a grayish-white light shone from there. When the light appeared, it illuminated the entire blood sea.

“What is that?” Imperial Emperor Xi Yu’s face sank.

Long Shenwu shut his eyes. “In accordance with my eminent father’s command, I invite the treasure out of the seal. Break the enemy together with me!”

“A treasure that the Qian Heavenly Emperor lent Long Shenwu?” The nearby Gu Hai narrowed his eyes slightly.

However, Long Sanqian’s expression changed. “What? His Holy Eminence lent Father this treasure?”


As the hole in Long Shenwu’s forehead enlarged, the terrifying might from inside strengthened.

“Humph! Treasure? We have already refined Blood Prison, and it is no weaker than any other enchanted treasure; even the top sixteen ancient treasures would not withstand Blood Prison. Break!” Imperial Emperor Xi Yu roared with a ferocious expression.

Finally, the treasure in Long Shenwu’s forehead flew out, unleashing a bright, grayish-white light. This instantly dyed the blood sea in the sky a grayish-white.

The moment that treasure appeared, everyone revealed a horrified expression, feeling like their mind had been shaken.

Even Gu Hai suddenly felt a chill run through his body. This was not an aura but a prideful air, an irresistible air that declared oneself supreme.


Gu Hai saw the appearance of that treasure amid the piercing radiance. It took the form of a plain and simple ax.

It was just an ordinary ax, devoid of talisman scripts. However, this ordinary ax did not seem to need the augmentation of any talisman scripts. When it appeared, it exuded exceptional pride.

“The strongest of the top sixteen ancient treasures, the Heaven Splitting Ax?” Venerable Liu Nian suddenly exclaimed.

“The strongest enchanted treasure in the world, the Heaven Splitting Ax?” Chang Ming exclaimed as well.

“The strongest in the world, the Heaven Splitting Ax?” Long Sanqian exclaimed.

Far away, Qin Yun suddenly stood up, looking horrified.

High in the sky, Imperial Emperor Xi Yu’s expression changed, instantly becoming even more ferocious. “So what if you have the Heaven Splitting Ax? Shatter it!”

“Treasure, please split the enemy!” Long Shenwu shouted coldly.

The Heaven Splitting Ax instantly swelled, growing increasingly larger as it swung at Blood Prison, which was chopping down.
