God Emperor Chapter 1071
A mass of tumbling blood clouds condensed above the humans and beasts. A huge palm reached out of it and pressed down.
The horrifying might made all the organisms below it tremble.
Wei Longxing was inside the cloud. Feeling Gu Linfeng’s aura, he looked up. Rather than feeling fear, a smile appeared. He actually came voluntarily, he thought. How stupid.
The Horned Ox Skull flew up from Wei Longxing’s hand and enlarged to the size of a pavilion. Thousands of flames shot up around the skull. It released a shred of Supreme Saint power and crashed against the bloody palm print.
The huge palm print rushed down at the Horned Ox Skull.
“How can this be?”
Wei Longxing’s expression changed. He retreated hundreds of feet away in a streak of five-colored light and charged into the camp of the humans.
The Horned Ox Skull crashed into the ground, hitting the place Wei Longxing had just been standing at. It lifted up a wave of yellow sand and created a huge ditch.
Zhang Ruochen flew down from the sky and stood in the relatively empty desert. He stood up straight, giving off an extraordinary temperature.
Wei Longxing looked at his hands with extreme shock. He’d never expected that even with his cultivation and the Horned Ox Skull, he still couldn’t block Gu Linfeng’s palm print.
Just what level had Gu Linfeng reached?
The humans and beasts present all paused in curiosity. How come these two humans were fighting each other?
Shangguan Xianyan’s almond eyes glanced at the fallen Horned Ox Skull. Shock appeared across her exquisite features. “So powerful!” she murmured.
The previous battle had shocked everyone. They all had a new understanding of Gu Linfeng’s abilities.
Cai Jinglun, leader of the Cai Family, stood up. Wanting to resolve the conflict between Zhang Ruochen and Wei Longxing, he said, “Gu Linfeng, we humans should be united before our enemy. Can we move on from personal rivalries for now?”
“No,” Zhang Ruochen said.
The beautiful twins of the Shangguan Clan both hated Gu Linfeng. They felt like he was being too willful and didn’t care about the big picture.
Shangguan Linglong furrowed her brow. “Gu Linfeng, don’t you know that Wei Longxing has already killed a Beast King? He’s a hero of the humans. A hero! If you attack him, you’re helping the beasts. Do you want to stand against all the humans?”
Zhang Ruochen put his hands behind his back and kept staring at Wei Longxing, ignoring the girl. It felt like he was saying that she wasn’t qualified to speak to him.
Shangguan Linglong gritted her teeth. She was a young King after all. As the heir of the Taichi Way’s sword way and a pride of the Shangguan Clan, she shone brightly. How could she be ignored like this?
Even if his cultivation was high, he still couldn’t be so rude.
Wei Longxing was no longer smiling. He grew serious because he knew that either he or Gu Linfeng would fall down today.
Gu Linfeng’s cultivation has improved greatly again. If I don’t have the Horned Ox Skull, I may lose.
Wei Longxing’s eyes kept flashing. Suddenly, he reached forward and slapped out powerful Holy Qi. Rather than attacking Zhang Ruochen, it was to retrieve the Horned Ox Skull.
However, Zhang Ruochen activated his Holy Qi and condensed it into a blood-red hand. It moved through the air to retrieve the Horned Ox Skull too.
The two bursts of power crashed with a deafening sound.
The two struck from hundreds of feet away and kept clashing against each other. Finally, Zhang Ruochen scattered Wei Longxing’s Holy Qi. He grabbed forward and took the Horned Ox Skull, holding it in his right hand.
Wei Longxing grunted and took four steps back. Anyone could see from the previous clash that Gu Linfeng had totally overpowered Wei Longxing, snatching the Horned Ox Skull directly.
“How can Wei Longxing lose so quickly? Isn’t he the top figure of the Blood God Sect below the Saint Realm?”
“Wei Longxing is indeed strong, but unfortunately, he met someone even stronger. It seems like the Deity is the true top figure.”
“As expected of Gu Linfeng, undefeated with his saintly palm. He’s so powerful and stole Wei Longxing’s Horned Ox Skull without any justification. That’s the skull of a Supreme Saint beast and contains a portion of the remaining power.”
Everyone was discussing them, sometimes looking at Zhang Ruochen and sometimes at Wei Longxing.
Wei Longxing’s face burned. His heart was filled with hate.
A few days ago, he’d earned incomparable honor and status. Then Gu Linfeng had come back and taken everything from him.
He quickly calmed down. “Gu Linfeng, we indeed have some conflicts and you may have a bad opinion of me. But you’re starting an internal conflict when we have a great enemy before us. This really disappoints me.”
“I’ve said before that our next meeting would be the date of your death,” Zhang Ruochen said.
Wei Longxing looked very just. “Calm down. I’ll give you an answer after we defeat these beasts. The misunderstandings between us aren’t unsolvable.”
The elder that had been beside Shangguan Xianyan all this time walked out and stood between them. He was a Saint from the Blood God Sect and had a very high status. He’d just sealed his cultivation at the pinnacle before the Saint Realm, but he still gave off a mighty aura.
“Deity,” he advised. “You and Wei Longxing are both talents of the Blood God Sect. There’s no need to turn to things like this because of some misunderstandings. We should unite before the enemy.”
Everyone present thought that Gu Linfeng had crossed the line. No matter what the conflicts between him and Wei Longxing were, he could wait until the beasts were defeated.
Zhang Ruochen didn’t feel like explaining. “How to defeat the beasts is up to you. I only have one goal, which is to kill Wei Longxing.”
“You’re insufferable and cannot see what’s important,” Shangguan Linglong huffed.
Just then, blue light shone above Zhang Ruochen’s head. The Blue Eagle Beast King spiraled in the air and screamed at Zhang Ruochen, “That human’s life belongs to me. Kid, you better not get involved or else I’ll kill you first.”
“His life belongs to me.” Zhang Ruochen stared at the Beast King with icy eyes. “If you don’t leave immediately, I’ll kill you first.”
“How dare you!” The Blue Eagle Beast King roared.
It spread its wings and became hundreds of feet wide. The wings covered the sun with a turbid aura. They flapped and icy wind instantly flooded down from the sky.
The power contained in the wind was very sharp. It condensed into various blue sword images that kept flying at Zhang Ruochen. Some of the blue Sword Qi also fell into the human camp.
A Half-Saint used a martial technique to try and stop it. However, the Sword Qi easily broke through it and stabbed into his head. It pierced his entire body and he died right then and there.
Merely a beam of Sword Qi was this terrifying. Zhang Ruochen was at the front and would face hundreds of Sword Qi. Could he block them?
Zhang Ruochen slapped upward, producing a blood-red dragon shadow. It shattered all the blue Sword Qi. Then he transformed into a streak of light and rushed upward. He flew to the height of the Blue Eagle Beast King and activated all his Holy Qi to attack.
“You dare to fight a Beast King at close range. Don’t you know that a Beast King’s physical body is much stronger than a human?”
The Blue Eagle Beast King scoffed. Extending a claw covered in metal scales, it went to meet Zhang Ruochen’s palm. The shocking cold Qi radiating from the claw formed wind blades in the surrounding space.
These wind blades flew out with the claw.
Zhang Ruochen’s hand and the Beast King’s claw crashed against each other. The next moment, all the Spiritual Qi within 300 miles shook violently.
The man and beast retreated at the same time.
The Blue Eagle Beast King was one of the weaker Beast Kings. It was a bit lower than the Firegold Raven Beast King. However, it was at the peak now and still couldn’t defeat Zhang Ruochen.
After the first test, the man and beast had an understanding of their opponent’s strength. After a short rest, they charged again and continued fighting. They all used different attacks and grew more intense.
“Gu Linfeng’s combat ability is shockingly strong. He can actually counter a Beast King.” Cai Jinglun squeezed his hands and took a deep breath.
He was the top of the new rank, but he couldn’t fight with a Beast King. He naturally felt a lot of pressure. He had to work harder from now on. Otherwise, the distance between them would only get further.
“The Blood God Sect is so powerful,” a human Monk said. “Gu Linfeng, Hai Lingyin, and Wei Longxing are all able to fight with a Beast King. Who would say that they’re the weakest of the seven ancient sects?”
Only Wei Longxing smiled among the present people. Gu Linfeng, Gu Linfeng! he thought. Even if you’ve improved a lot, you shouldn’t go against a Beast King. Are you trying to kill yourself?
Earlier, Wei Longxing had used the Horned Ox Skull and released his strongest power for a sneak attack on the Blue Eagle Beast King, but he could only make the beast lose some feathers. It was evident just how terrifying the beast was.
Of course, it would be great if Gu Linfeng could die under the Blue Eagle Beast King’s claws. It would solve Wei Longxing’s crisis. However, the battle didn’t develop the way he’d predicted.
Zhang Ruochen broke through the Blue Eagle Beast King’s seal and slammed down on its neck. His hand sank into the flesh and left a bloody hole in the neck.
The Blue Eagle Beast King wailed.
The next moment, Zhang Ruochen flashed and landed behind the Blue Eagle Beast King. He stomped down and shattered a dozen bones with loud cracks.
Zhang Ruochen kept breaking the Blue Eagle Beast King’s back, pressing it down to the ground from the sky.
The huge blue eagle sank into the yellow sand. Blood flowed out of its back, dyeing the ground within hundreds of feet red.
