Chapter 1303: Shocking Lightning (One)
All four races treated this news like this would be end of the world after learning the strength of the foreign world in detail. They were just too powerful. Once they made it to the continent, even if the four races did not get wiped out, they would be reduced to slaves.
The authoritative hall elders of the War God Hall immediately returned to the Wasteland Continent to gather all their power. Cangqiong left without the magical beasts, personally hurrying back to the Beast God Hall to tell the two other Saint Emperors about what he had learned.
Yadriam sent out several messages one after another as well and began to gather all the power of the Sea Goddess Force. At the same time, she contacted the two other hall masters.
Soon afterward, around two hundred more Hundred Races Saint Kings arrived on the Tian Yuan Continent through Space Gates. They had sent two-thirds of their total force in order to repel the invasion.
A large group of experts had hurried over from the Beast God Continent as well. They were all Class 8 Magical Beasts, amounting to over six hundred. Even Lankyros and Kaiser had come. Their total number was much more than the experts of the Hundred Races.
The Beast God Continent was more powerful than both the Hundred Races and the Tian Yuan Continent. Not only did they possess Saint Emperors, the number of Saint Kings and Saint Rulers exceeded the two other continents by quite a lot. The Class 8 Magical Beasts that had hurried over was probably just a relatively larger portion with the whole continent in perspective.
Other than that, over four hundred Saint Kings had hurried over from the sea realm. All of them were experts within the territory of the Sea Goddess Hall. Not a single person from the Heaven’s Spirit Hall or Serpent God Hall came.
The power gathered on the Tian Yuan Continent rapidly surged with the reinforcements from the Hundred Races, the magical beasts, and the Sea race. The numbers of Saint Kings in Mercenary City had exceeded two thousand, and there were even five Saint Emperors. Only Houston and the hall masters of the Heaven’s Spirit Hall and the Serpent God Hall were absent.
The Bloodsword sect poured all their efforts into searching for Houston, but they could not find a single sign of him no matter what they tried, as if Houston had suddenly disappeared from the continent.
The vice sect master of the Bloodsword sect, Jiang Wang, secretly panicked. Now that such a significant matter had occurred on the Tian Yuan Continent, the two most important figures of the Bloodsword sect were actually not present at all. Not only had Houston vanished from the map, they could not even contact Jian Chen.
Kaiser and Lankyros stood there with rather pale faces. Everyone present could feel that their presences were rather unstable, clearly injured.
Kaiser glanced at Xiao Ling in some fear. His lips trembled as if he wanted to say something, but he held back in the end.
Lankyros was the same. After a moment of hesitation, he said to the grand elder, “The battle prowess of Saint Emperors is extremely important to repel the foreign invasion. Before they arrive, we need to recover our peak condition, or we might not be of any use at all. It’s just that there’s a strand of origin energy rampaging about within us, and we need to use half of our energy to suppress it. We probably can’t even use half of our strength.”
The grand elder glanced at Kaiser and the tiger emperor as he smiled deeply. He knew that the two Saint Emperors had been wounded by the barrier spirit and were still injured. They wanted to ask Xiao Ling to remove the origin energy within them, except they found it rather unwilling to ask in such a straightforward manner.
The grand elder hovered in the air as he bowed courteously to Xiao Ling. He said, “Esteemed barrier spirit, can you remove the origin energy within the two seniors, so they can recover their peak strength and increase our overall defensive force?”
Xiao Ling frowned and looked at the two Saint Emperors rather unhappily. She said in an angry manner, “Hmph, so much for bullying big brother. If it weren’t for the fact that the bad people from the other world want to come over, I would have never bothered with you.” Xiao Ling waved her hand as the strand of origin energy immediately flew out of their bodies, having been taken back by Xiao Ling.
The two of them immediately felt their bodies lighten. The strand of energy that they had been utterly helpless against had finally left their bodies, so they immediately rejoiced. Without any hesitation, they sat down to heal.
They returned to their peak condition with their bodies of magical beasts very quickly now that they were free from the origin energy’s torture.
At this moment, a figure appeared far away as he flew over hurriedly. It was a white-robed, middle-aged man with a graceful and striking appearance. However, his face bore an evil feeling.
“Human Saint Emperor, you’re finally willing to come out. I was wondering how long you had planned on staying hidden,” Yadriam said with a heavy tone. Her voice was extremely cold with a sliver of killing intent present.
The middle-aged man was the path lord of carnal desires. He had arrived long ago, except he had kept himself hidden.
He had hidden himself and peeped on Yadriam many times already. His eyes were filled with lust, so he established a very bad impression of himself in Yadriam’s eyes.
The path lord of carnal desires clasped his hands at Yadriam before glancing at the Heavenly Enchantress. He then said to the barrier spirit, “The matters before were my mistake. Please purge the origin energy within me, lord barrier spirit.”
Xiao Ling softly snorted and removed the origin energy within him rather reluctantly. She found the three of them to be extremely annoying when they had abused Jian Chen before. It was just that they needed all the power they had now that they faced against the threat of the invading world.
The path lord also became excited when he sensed that the power that tortured him for many years had vanished. He immediately ingested a high class Radiant Spirit Pill and began to heal.
The Heavenly Enchantress stared at him coldly and said icily, “Path lord, if it happens a second time, I will not forgive you.”
Everyone present looked at the Heavenly Enchantress when she spoke. They all looked at her in shock. No one had thought that she was bold enough to threaten a Saint Emperor.
The path lord’s face hardened before immediately darkening. He looked at her coldly and sneered, “Your way of the zither indeed possesses unfathomable power, enough to even affect Saint Emperors slightly. However, I practice the path of desires and specialize in refining my soul. My soul is incomparable to any other Saint Emperor’s in strength, so do you really think your little tricks can threaten me?”
