Blackie’s expression changed. “Hurry and remove All Lives Equal,” it said hurriedly.
Ye Honglei’s expression faltered. How could she know that the sword-wielding man had such a terrible hidden card?
The aura of that demon sword was like a demon god arriving. It could kill all beings in the world.
Even if she stood 100 feet away, she still felt like she would get torn apart by that Qi.
However, Ye Honglei was still a ruler, so she didn’t get scared dumb. She reacted quickly, bowing toward the center of the dojo. She communicated with the remnant of the ancient god’s soul to deactivate All Lives Equal.
Blackie stood before Ye Honglei. It spread its wings, radiating with blazing flames. Each feather had turned into a metal blade. Dense Sword Qi hit Blackie, creating metallic clashes.
Ye Honglei looked at Zhang Ruochen in the distance. The huge demon sword was about to fall upon his head.
Golden light shone from his body.
A golden umbrella appeared in his hand. It spun and grew bigger, pushing up like a gold mushroom and clashing against the sword.
A deafening dragon’s roar came from the umbrella.
Eight huge golden dragons flew out of the umbrella. They were hundreds of feet long and created intense winds. All of the stones, trees, and palaces in the Tianluo Dojo began flying.
Two forces clashed. The demonic sword and the eight dragons were at a standstill for a while before shattering at the same time.
Above the Eight-dragon Umbrella, Wang Xu’s headpiece and clothes were torn by the golden energy. His body flew out like a broken kite.
The Eight-dragon Umbrella shrunk quickly until it was a regular size and appeared in Zhang Ruochen’s left hand.
The ground underfoot sunk down several meters. It was like a crater. However, he stood up straight and tall like a white-clothed emperor walking in the mortal world with an umbrella.
The destructive energy from that hit killed all of the injured Ruiya Field cultivators.
They couldn’t bear the clash of power from the seventh step Saint King level at such a close distance at all.
Only that fifth step Saint King survived. Face full of fear, he fled from the Tianluo Dojo. He flew among the snowy peaks, fleeing toward the horizon.
Zhang Ruochen collected the Eight-dragon Umbrella. His Holy Qi spun quickly, entering the umbrella.
The umbrella was densely covered in golden patterns. The eight dragons flew out again, flying around the handle.
The Eight-dragon Umbrella flew out as a streak of gold light. It quickly caught up with the fifth step Saint King, broke through his protective Holy Qi, and penetrated him.
The umbrella opened and twirled. The Saint King’s strong body was torn apart. Saint blood spattered onto the pure white snowy peak like a blooming flower.
The Eight-dragon Umbrella wasn’t stained by blood. It cut a beautiful arc in the sky and flew back to Zhang Ruochen’s hand.
Wang Xu was protected by divine patterns, so the power from the Eight-dragon Umbrella and Sword Emperor Rune only injured him slightly. It wasn’t fatal.
“It seems that Ziyan is right. You are a great enemy. I’d underestimated you before.”
Wang Xu chuckled wryly. He’d been arrogant his entire life, never caring about any cultivators of the same age. He took a harsh hit from Zhang Ruochen.
Zhang Ruochen stood across from him. “Are you surrendering?”
“Surrender? Even if we have to die together, I’ll never surrender.”
Wang Xu raised his hands. The abstruse martial deity print appeared on his forehead. It released a beam of light that shot into the clouds.
Was he…planning on deactivating his saint source?
Zhang Ruochen activated spatial power. He waved his hand and a long spatial crack flew over.
Before the spatial crack could approach Wang Xu, it was shaken by an aggressive force and actually flew to the side.
Zhang Ruochen was slightly moved.
This force could affect the spatial structure. It spread from Wang Xu’s Sea of Qi and swept further and further.
Soon, the mountain that the Tianluo Dojo was on had a dozen cracks from the power. The huge mountain was about to collapse.
Ye Honglei’s face paled. “Should we activate All Lives Equal again?”
“Wait a bit. I don’t believe this fourth step Saint King can create such a big storm.” Blackie stared at Wang Xu. The fire burning on its body grew hotter as if turning into a volcano.
With Ye Honglei’s cultivation, she felt that she was going to melt from Blackie’s fire. She could barely hold up even after she retreated outside the dojo.
Now, the Tianluo Dojo had become a fatal land. Any cultivators below the third step Saint King Realm would die if they got close.
Following a loud boom, a ball that was thousands of feet wide appeared above Wang Xu’s head.
Half of the entire sky was covered by the ball.
That ball flew out of Wang Xu’s Sea of Qi. It was actually a star that had shrunk thousands of times.
The star’s aura was very scary. As it spun, the force made Zhang Ruochen and Blackie retreat at the same time. The ground underfoot kept cracking and collapsing.
However, with Wang Xu’s cultivation, he clearly couldn’t control the star.
As it spun, his entire body trembled. Blood seeped out of his pores. He really wanted to die with Zhang Ruochen.
“This guy actually refined a planet into his Sea of Qi. What is Zhang Ruochen going to do?” Blackie started panicking. It wanted to escape.
It wanted to activate All Lives Equal, but it was too late!
A divine planet was a star born in a divine constellation when a being became a god. It could shine onto the world. When Chi Yao became a god, 33 stars had shone together in the universe, becoming her constellation.
Fang Yi, Heir of Hell Blade Field, had refined an ancient god’s planet into his body.
However, the soul of the planet’s god had already disappeared. It had limited power. But Wang Xu’s planet still contained a bit of the star’s soul.
With this shred of soul, Wang Xu could control the planet and unleash a power that far surpassed his own power.
A blow by a planet with a star soul was unstoppable by anyone below the Supreme Saint Realm. They would be turned to dust instantly.
The Thousand Star Maiden arrived on a cloud. “Stop!” she cried.
Wang Xu looked at the Thousand Star Maiden with surprise.
Ruiya Field and Thousand Star Civilization were both top worlds. They’d cooperated and interacted many times before.
Thus, Wang Xu was one of the very few cultivators who’d seen the Thousand Star Maiden’s true appearance before. He’d only seen her once, but he’d been shocked. Even the arrogant Wang Xu wanted to fall to her feet.
Wang Xu had even pursued her before but failed. Until then, he finally realized that the Thousand Star Maiden was even more arrogant than him. She was like a pure ice mountain that no one could climb.
“Wang Xu, are you crazy?” the Thousand Star Maiden asked. “Using the planet with your current cultivation, you’ll die even if you defeat Zhang Ruochen.”
“Goddess…are you worried for me?”
Warmth flowed through Wang Xu’s heart.
Blackie’s eyes rolled. “What are you thinking? How could the Thousand Star Maiden care about your life? She’s worried for Zhang Ruochen. After all, they’ve already vowed their lives for each other.”
Wang Xu’s eyes darkened. The planet hovering above his head shook violently. It was evident that his emotions were going crazy.
“Zhang Ruochen, take out the marriage letter to make him give up,” Blackie said.
“Zhang Ruochen,” the Thousand Star Maiden said. “You promised me…”
Zhang Ruochen could see that Wang Xu seemed to really care about the Thousand Star Maiden, so he chuckled. “Don’t worry. Since I promised you, I won’t take out the marriage letter for other people to see.”
Wang Xu’s expression was very ugly. He thought of the gossip about the Thousand Star Maiden recently. “Zhang Ruochen, I will kill you.”
“Who’s afraid?” Zhang Ruochen yelled. “Fight!”
“My Purple-Gold Bagua Mirror can counter the planet.” The Amazing Little Taoist wanted to help.
Zhang Ruochen took out the purple divine stone from Lord Lingquan. He poured Holy Qi into it and the stone instantly shone with blinding purple light. It transformed into a purple divine mountain the size of a planet.
According to Ling Xiu, this stone was most likely related to the Stone Race, one of the three Hell World races.
It had once been the size of a star too and hovered beside a black hole. One could imagine that its power wouldn’t be any weaker than a divine planet.
Of course, Zhang Ruochen didn’t want to go full out with Wang Xu. He had to preserve his power for the following battle.
Thus, he summoned the Holy Carnivorous Flower and Emperor Yi Bone Staff. They activated the purple stone together and clashed with Wang Xu’s planet.
“Hurry and retreat.”
Blackie, the Amazing Little Taoist, Ye Honglei, and the Thousand Star Maiden all flew into the distance. They didn’t dare to stay in the Tianluo Dojo.
Behind them, horrible power burst out. The entire air shook as if the sky was about to collapse.
The mountain where the Tianluo Dojo was situated shattered completely and fell in.
Wang Xu’s skin exploded bloodily, but his battle intent was still strong. He wanted to control the planet for a second attack, but he didn’t have the power. His legs trembled and his arms couldn’t push up the planet anymore. He fell heavily to the ground.
The planet was about to fall and crush him.
Zhang Ruochen used the spatial grab to grab Wang Xu’s body and retreat hurriedly.
The huge planet fell to the ground, lifting up clouds of dirt.
That force shook all the land within thousands of miles as if it was a great earthquake.
“I…lost… Kill me now…”
Wang Xu lay by Zhang Ruochen’s feet. His eyes were dull as if he’d lost his soul.
“You still have some use now.”
Zhang Ruochen sealed Wang Xu’s Seal of Qi and meridians. Then he walked toward the space transfer formation. After checking and confirming that it wasn’t damaged, he said, “Bring him along to the Xumi Dojo.”
Before activating the space transfer formation, Zhang Ruochen released his Spiritual Power clones to collect the Ruiya Field cultivators’ corpses and their treasures.
They all had extraordinary backgrounds and each of their treasures was valuable. Any random one had a high grade.
Zhang Ruochen really needed saint stones, so he would naturally take them all.
He even put Wang Xu’s planet into his Mercury Gourd.
