Immortal And Martial Dual Cultivation Chapter 1518Chapter 1518 (Raw 1499): Lone Rescuer
After a while, Xiao Chen recovered his wits from the shock of the revelation. He looked at the black-clad old man and said, “The Thunder Sovereign should have his reasons for doing that, right?”
The black-clad old man nodded. “The Azure Emperor practiced the Demonic Dao. Ordinary people would not be able to understand everything that he did. As a result, he offended some people. These people had long hated him and spoke behind his back.
“There was also a group of dancing clowns in the Martial God Palace taking action behind his back. I don’t know what they did or used, but they managed to convince the Thunder Sovereign. After that, the moment the Azure Emperor returned to the Kunlun Realm, the Thunder Sovereign dealt him the fatal blow.”
When Xiao Chen heard the black-clad old man’s words, he felt somewhat like laughing in his heart, but he could not, either.
There were always two sides to everything. One could not listen to just one side of the story.
If judged solely based on the black-clad old man’s words, the Azure Emperor would definitely be a decisive hero who ruled the world, a person whose words were iron-clad. Even though the Azure Emperor practiced the Demonic Dao, in the old man’s eyes, that was just a Dao that ordinary people could not understand.
However, to outsiders, the Azure Emperor had been no different from a demon. He had affected the interests of many people, becoming a law unto himself, which incurred the displeasure of many and attracted a lot of hatred.
The words of both sides could not be completely trusted when one was the Azure Emperor’s Item Spirit and the other was the group whose interests conflicted with the Azure Emperor’s.
However, if one took bits and pieces from both sides, one could more or less piece together the truth.
If Xiao Chen viewed this objectively from the perspective of a third party, neither side did anything wrong. It was just a matter of perspective; everyone had their own desires.
The Azure Emperor practiced the Demonic Dao, walking a path that had only him as supreme, decisive in killing, and viewing other’s lives like ants.
The other side’s interests were damaged but did not dare to say anything for a long time. When they obtained an opportunity, naturally, they would beat him while he was down, uprooting the problem.
This situation looked very ordinary, with nothing out of place. However, Xiao Chen still had one doubt.
Why did the Thunder Sovereign make a move?
Could it be that the Thunder Sovereign did it purely to eradicate a demon, thinking the Azure Emperor a great demon?
However, this is not normal, either. If there were no benefits involved, why did the Thunder Sovereign take this risk? How did the Thunder Sovereign benefit? Although he became the Martial God Palace’s Palace Master, in reality, the three Holy Masters controlled the Martial God Palace.
His Thunder and Lightning Palace had always been a sect of the same level as the Supreme Sky Sect.
The azure-clad man spoke up at an opportune moment. “Don’t listen just to him. Back then, the few of us could not agree with what the Azure Emperor did. Although it was just the survival of the fittest, there are some basic principles in this world that should not be violated. However, the Azure Emperor—”
The old Dragon Horse interrupted, saying, “Never mind, let’s not continue. You already asked a lot about the Azure Emperor’s matter. The past already happened, gone like the wind. You just need to remember not to take the path of the Azure Emperor.”
“Right, the Azure Emperor was drenched in sin, giving off an evil aura. Even in the outer realm, few would be as heavily laden with sin as him. Back then, it was due to the sin on him that he did not obtain an inheritance. Hence, he could not walk out of the Kunlun Realm,” the girl in her prime said slowly, likewise advising Xiao Chen not to dwell on this.
At the mention of inheritance, Xiao Chen remembered that he received the Blood-Soaked Dragon Emperor’s inheritance, but there did not seem to be any benefits to it.
The azure-clad man smiled and said, “No benefits? If it were another Dragon Emperor’s inheritance, how would it have been able to help you directly break off the shackles of Martial Emperor and allow you to advance to the Veritable Personage Realm?
“You are the personification of the saying, ‘The well-fed cannot know how the starving suffer.’ If one desires to be a god, one has to be a person first. The Veritable Personage Realm is an important dividing line in the path of Martial Cultivation. Many people remain stuck and die at this bottleneck. Few could break through as easily as you did.”
Xiao Chen smiled and did not argue.
The azure-clad man said that Xiao Chen was the personification of the saying, “The well-fed cannot know how the starving suffer.” However, the azure-clad man did not know how much more difficult it was for Kunlun Realm cultivators compared to those in the outer realm.
Along the way, Xiao Chen had nearly died several times, many of which he had suffered in pain or had to gamble with his life.
Furthermore, there was his bloody Emperor’s Road with ten thousand steps.
One tribulation with every step, every step breaking the heart.
However, Xiao Chen was not one to argue much. Besides, the other party was also his senior.
The old Dragon Horse said, “Right now, you are still unable to touch the Blood-Soaked Dragon Emperor’s inheritance. However, he did leave some things behind in the Azure Dragon Palace. Would you like to go and take a look now?”
“There is no need at the moment. I have to go to the Lunar Palace and take a look first and do my best to rescue the three Immortal Holy Lands.”
The old Dragon Horse said, “Right, that is good as well. However, after that matter is over, you need to soak in the Azure Dragon Palace’s medicinal bath and stabilize your cultivation. Otherwise, if you hurt your foundations, it will be problematic.”
“Many thanks, Seniors. I’ll definitely come back safely.”
After walking out of the Azure Dragon Palace, Xiao Chen looked at the sky overhead. The strong wind, heavy rain, and dark clouds fifty kilometers around had already vanished.
However, the previously clear sky was veiled by hazy scarlet spiritual clouds. There was no light or sun.
Now that Xiao Chen knew about the Dark Church’s origins and that the Thunder Sovereign was the one who had injured the Azure Emperor, he was dispirited.
The old Dragon Horse said that the past had already happened, gone like the wind.
However, Xiao Chen wanted to say that he was the reincarnation of the Sky Dome Immortal Lord and had an inseverable connection to the Azure Emperor. The causes of the past resulted in the effects of today. Everything was not over yet.
The past had already happened, gone like the wind. However, this wind was the autumn wind, heralding the even colder winter wind.
When Mo Chen came over from the distance, Xiao Chen withdrew from his rumination, then asked, “Is there news of Yue Bingyun?”
Coincidentally, Yue Bingyun happened to be in Bright Moon City. After the Dragon’s Gate was rebuilt, her relationship with the Lunar Palace improved significantly. Hence, she frequently made trips back.
“I was about to tell you about this. Bingyun just used a Messaging Token to contact me, telling me to bring the Dragon’s Gate’s people away as soon as possible. It seems like the Lunar Palace will not be able to hold out for much longer. A total of eight Immortal statues is surrounding and attacking Bright Moon City.”
Mo Chen continued with an anxious expression, “Before I could tell her that Big Brother Xiao returned, she shattered her Messaging Token. I believe she was probably in battle at that time.
“Big Brother Xiao, are you going over immediately?”
“You understand me well.”
After leaving those words, Xiao Chen brushed by Mo Chen. When she looked over her shoulder, all she saw was his back slowly disappearing into the distance.
“Don’t worry. I will return. If any refugees come to the Dragon’s Gate, open the city gates for them. Heavenly Star Island will be fine.”
Bright Moon City, Heavenly Starry Ocean:
It was the grandest city in the Heavenly Starry Ocean. Right now, it was in danger of destruction.
The Treasure Master seemed to understand that the Lunar Palace was a tough bone to chew, so he specially sent eight Immortal statues here—almost half of his eighteen Immortal statues.
The colossal Immortal statues surrounded and attacked Bright Moon City. The nearby islands were crushed, and the vast island where Bright Moon City was located looked like a bright full moon floating in the sky.
A gentle golden light enveloped the entire city. From a distance, it looked exactly like a golden full moon.
Four Immortal statues relentlessly executed all sorts of Magic Skills at the golden light, trying to break this barrier.
There were lightning, ice, fire, and all sorts of other mysterious phenomena. There were also gigantic hands covering the sky, or ancient ferocious beasts continuously striking the barrier.
The Lunar Palace disciples in Bright Moon City and the cultivators who fled to this place were all terrified.
Loud rumblings resounded in their ears as the city shook left and right.
The Lunar Palace disciples fulfilled their duties, doing their best to maintain the formation protecting the city, not letting the Magic Skills of these Immortal statues break the barrier.
Up in the sky, the Bright Moon Empress, Yue Bingyun, and the other Lunar Palace elders resisted the attacks of four Immortal statues.
If not for them fighting against four of the Immortal statues, all eight would have attacked the barrier together, and the city’s barrier would have broken long ago.
Once the barrier broke, tens of thousands of Lunar Palace disciples and millions of cultivators in Bright Moon City would not escape death.
Even farther away, the Treasure Master’s people, who were dressed in black, rode on war chariots, watching all this and waiting for the city to fall, so that they could charge in.
A Holy Land was filled with elite cultivators with flourishing Qi and blood, which were very useful for the Demonic God Blood Sacrifice.
“Palace Master, we cannot last much longer. These Immortal statues are tireless. Even after fighting us for half a day, they still do not show any sign of fatigue,” a Lunar Palace Elder gasped with much difficulty, her complexion pale.
The Bright Moon Empress frowned slightly. Although she could still fight, these Elders would not last much longer.
Without these Elders’ assistance, she would be hard-pressed to face these four Immortal statues alone.
The Immortal statues’ gigantic bodies advanced triumphantly in the sky, forcing the Lunar Palace’s group into constant retreat.
“Fall back to Bright Moon City!”
It looked like they would be defeated soon. Hence, the Bright Moon Empress ordered a retreat and sent out a vast bright moon, barely repulsing the four Immortal statues and buying time for the group to withdraw.
Just at this moment, Yue Bingyun’s eyes lit up with excitement. She pointed at the horizon and said, “Master, look!”
The Bright Moon Empress looked in the direction Yue Bingyun indicated. She saw a white silhouette walking over in a seemingly leisurely manner, moving fifty kilometers with every step, at the limits of her vision.
Everywhere this figure passed, the surging winds and howling waves calmed under his feet.
