Omnipotent Sage Chapter 562
Although others didn’t know the might of the Void-catching Technique, it was very familiar to Zhou Bao because he had once suffered a loss from it when he was in the Dragon-taming Ruins. At that time, however, because of the appearance of this giant handprint, he had to use his Furnace of Immortality. Therefore, he was still afraid to show his trump card above board in front of the crowd until now. His fairy weapon would surely cause a stir. Although he was now much more powerful than he was at that moment, he could not have the slightest neglect in the face of this Void-catching Technique.
As soon as he raised his hand, the Infinite Poison Banner flew out. After that, a cloud of black smoke went to wrap itself around the giant void handprint.
No sooner than the black smoke wrapped the handprint, a scratching sound rang out.
The void handprint that was about to grasp Zhou Bao suddenly came to a stop. Made of pneuma, the crystal-like and perfect hand suddenly turned into a withered and black one, without any luster. Wisps of black air swirled around the giant hand, and it seemed as if it was about to break the giant void hand apart completely.
“The Elixir of Nine-headed Fierce Beast and Infinite Poison Banner!” As the lord of the Divine Wind Palace, Yu Taixu was well-informed, and naturally, he realized what had happened as soon as he saw this situation. “You’ve refined the Elixir of Nine-headed Fierce Beast!”
“Your time is limited!” Instead of answering Yu Taixu’s question, Zhou Bao just held up Zhi IX, who had been struggling in his hand, and in this way, told Yu Taixu, who had not yet shown up, that Zhi IX’s life could not last long.
“Zhou Bao, don’t go too far. Release Zhi IX right now!” Yu Taixu couldn’t give in in front of so many people, otherwise, the dignity of the Divine Wind Palace would be trampled underfoot.
“As long as you hand Wang She over to me, I’ll let him go!” Zhou Bao said calmly, without yielding an inch.
Just when Yu Taixu was about to say something more, Zhou Bao clenched his hand and Zhi IX’s struggle suddenly became violent.
“It’s impossible for us to let Wang She go, even if you kill Zhi IX. We five biggest sects have sent a total of 49 people on this trip to the Infinite Star Sea. Each of them was of the top elite and has carried with them Pure Yang Celestial Devices which were used to suppress the fate of their sect. But finally, only Wang She managed to come back. If we failed to figure out this matter, how can we account for it to other sects?”
“Not necessarily!” Before Zhou Bao could reply, Child-endowing Buddha, who was sitting next to him, suddenly spoke, “It’s another matter, right? It won’t make any difference whether Wang She is at the Divine Wind Palace or at the Immortal Palace. We’re all friends, why should we let this matter sour our relationship?”
Child-endowing Buddha’s words successfully attracted everyone’s attention. How strange it was! How would he speak for the Immortal Palace and even Zhou Bao? It should be noted that he had historical grievances against Zhou Bao, and that was known to all. There was a deeply ingrained long-standing resentment between them. Although it was far from being absolutely irreconcilable, he had once completely lost his face due to Zhou Bao. Therefore, at this very moment, it was strange enough for him not to kick Zhou Bao when he was down, let alone he actually spoke for Zhou Bao.
“Amitabha. Everyone knows that there are some small frictions between me and Zhou the Almsgiver, and I’m always looking for a chance to teach him a lesson. However, the order of priority should be paid more attention to since the enmity between us is only personal. But if Lord Yu really clash with him, it is likely to evolve into a battle between the Immortal Palace and the Divine Wind Palace. The appearance of the Supreme Fairy Weapon and the accident that happened in the Infinite Star Sea are all matters of great importance. They not only relate to the five biggest sects but also the Seven-deity Regions and even the entire Heaven Realm. In the face of such great events and such a great crisis, the grudge between me and Zhou Bao is of nothing important!” Filled with compassion, Child-endowing Buddha’s argument was watertight. All the people widened their eyes and stared at Child-endowing Buddha’s face. Yu Taixu, who had been sitting on the throne in the Grand Divine Wind Palace, nearly fell off.
What had he said?
What did he mean?
This monk must have been kicked in the head by a donkey!
How could he say such high-sounding, just, and honorable words here? By saying these words, his realm of thought appeared loftier than those of the other Elders and experts in the five biggest sects.
These words would sound plausible whoever said them. But since they were said by an extremely nasty monk, the moral standards of the five biggest sects in the Four Eastern Regions suddenly plummeted to an all-time low.
Even a nasty monk would have such a brilliant opinion and know how to see the whole picture. What about others? Did they live in vain for all these years?
Although everyone knew that there must be some reasons for Child-endowing Buddha suddenly to keep friends with Zhou Bao and the Immortal Palace, they felt ashamed to raise any objections now that Child-endowing Buddha had said these words.
“Yeah, Child-endowing Buddha has a point. It’s not the time for us, the five biggest sects, to clash with each other. Since the Immortal Palace and King Wuyang insist on bringing Wang She back, I think we’d better let them do it. It won’t make any difference no matter where Wang She is at. We’re all sects in the Four Eastern Regions and Wang She is one of the 28 constellations in the Immortal Palace, so it won’t be appropriate for Wang She to stay at the Divine Wind Palace all the time…!”
At this moment, a Highest Elder of the Dragon Thunder Palace also voiced his opinion. With him taking the lead, all the people in the other three sects nodded in agreement in a row. All of a sudden, the situation that the Divine Wind Palace joined hands with the other three sects collapsed.
“Boom!” Sitting in the Grand Divine Wind Palace, Yu Taixu violently punched the golden table in front of him and it shattered. He took a deep breath and said, “Since everyone thinks so, then…!”
“No, absolutely no! Zhou Bao, you’re too arrogant. Do you really think of the Divine Wind Palace as the Central Mainland Region?” Before Yu Taixu could finish speaking, his words were interrupted by a shriek. With an air of exasperation, the voice came out of the blue, as if a newly obtained treasure would be taken away right now.
“Who is she?”Zhou Bao’s heart throbbed. Instinctively, he felt this voice was somewhat familiar. After thinking for a while, he recalled that it belonged to the woman who was sitting next to Yu Taixu in the Human Emperor Palace the day he made “Zhe-er”, who had satirized him, unconscious with a single blow.
Apparently, everyone but Zhou Bao heard this voice clearly and recalled who was its owner. Suddenly, the Treasure Light Tower had been plunged into a weird silence again.
Right at this moment, Zhou Bao said with a grin, “Haha, Zhi IX, it seems that this woman really holds a grudge against you and wants you to die quickly. Since such being the case, I won’t bother talking with you any longer. Go to the…!”
Before Zhou Bao could speak the word “hell” out, he saw a green light coming straight at his hand which was holding Zhi IX.
“Humph!” Zhou Bao snorted. The Infinite Poison Banner once again went to wrap itself around the green light.
“Sizzle!” The black smoke of the Infinite Poison Banner suddenly broke the green light apart, but the sneer hanging over the corners of Zhou Bao’s mouth froze.
It was because that after the sizzling sound, the green light suddenly broke through the Infinite Poison Banner. At the same time, Zhou Bao also felt as if his Infinite Poison Banner had been restrained by the green light. Although the Elixir of Nine-headed Fierce Beast in the banner was trying to withstand it, it was so powerful that the Elixir of Nine-headed Fierce Beast and Infinite Poison Banner simply could not withstand it.
“It’s the Taihao Fairy Weapon, Green Pith Leaf!”
Suddenly, Zhou Bao saw the true features of that green light clearly and recalled its name.
It was a green leaf known as Green Pith Leaf, which had been used by Taihai Sage Wen Yida in Taiyuan Heaven in that year. Therefore, Zhou Bao was quite familiar with it.
Zhou Bao shook his body suddenly and executed the Three Realms Division, trying to avoid that green leaf.
“Boy, do you think you can do whatever you want in the Divine Wind Palace just because you’ve defeated Hong Taihe? Do you think you can come and go freely through the Divine Wind Palace just because you know a hollow-travel Divine Sense? If I don’t teach you a lesson today, you will think that the Divine Wind Palace can be offended arbitrarily!”
Filled with enmity, the voice resounded through the Divine Wind Palace. In an instant, the green light shone violently and Zhou Bao felt that the surrounding space immediately became sticky. The Three Realms Division that would work every time failed to help him move even half a step this time.
When the green light was about to hit him, Zhou Bao shouted in a low voice. A light flashed through the place between his eyebrows and black-red SwordQi shot out rapidly and met the green light.
“Pfff!” The black-red sword light flashed past and disappeared, but the green light shone weirdly and kept moving forward.
“Damn it. I’m restrained again!” Zhou Bao sensed that his Yin and Yang Heavenly Sword Qi had disappeared and then shouted angrily. He threw Zhi IX forward to meet the green light.
The green light touched and enveloped Zhi IX’s body. In an instant, Zhi IX recovered from his injuries strangely.
“Thank you for your help, mistress!” Zhi IX spoke out after he had recovered from his injuries. He had lost his dignity today, but luckily, he had survived this crisis. Therefore, he glared at Zhou Bao and withdrew.
Zhou Bao’s strength was far better than his own and obviously, he was no match for Zhou Bao now. But now, his mistress attacked Zhou Bao with a fairy weapon. No matter how powerful Zhou Bao was, he could not manage to escape. Even if he wouldn’t die this time, he shall shed a layer of skin. Suddenly, Zhi IX was in a happy mood and began to think about how would he torture Zhou Bao after he was captured.
“Mistress? Damn it. This woman should be Yu Taixu’s wife! With a fairy weapon in hand, she seems to be determined to kill me!”Zhou Bao felt angry. He withdrew the Infinite Poison Banner and turned it into a cloud of black smoke to protect himself.
“Sizzle, sizzle, sizzle, sizzle, sizzle…!”
The Green Pith Leaf was a Fairy Weapon, but his Infinite Poison Banner was merely an Upper-grade Pure Yang Celestial Device. Most important of all, this Green Pith Leaf contained an immense amount of spirits of life which was just suitable for suppressing the Infinite Poison Banner. Therefore, the Infinite Poison Banner could never resist the attacks of the Green Pith Leaf and instantly broke apart. A green leaf fell on Zhou Bao’s head and shone vigorously, aiming to suppress Zhou Bao here.
