Chapter 1084, Dragon Emperor corpse
Evidently, in the eyes of the Great Ancient Dragon Emperor, among these eight intruders, there was only Ye Qingyu. As for the others… they were unable to withstand a single blow.
“Let’s just battle.” Ye Qingyu erupted with killing intent. “Whether alive or dead, you will know after the battle. Since you murdered Mister Ren Puyang, then even if you hide in the underworld, I will come find you to kill you.”
“Ren Puyang had just helped you a few times, is he worth you fighting to the death for him?” The voice of the Great Ancient Dragon Emperor was condescending and contained unmatched majesty. “In this vast world, there aren’t many that I pay attention to. If you’re willing to surrender to me, I can give you eternal life.”
“Eternal life?” Ye Qingyu smiled mockingly. “This is the reason why you gave up the glory of the past and fell to the demonic side?”
“Not give up, but picked up.” The Great Ancient Dragon Emperor said in an incomparably firm voice, “I have been enlightened. I have found the right way. The glory of the past is just as fleeting as passing clouds, only eternal life is the most important.”
“How outstanding was the former Great Ancient Dragon Emperor, his power shook the Vast Thousand Domains. At the mention of the name everybody would put their thumbs up and praise incessantly. The Dragon Human Race saw you as a God. That is the real right way. In my eyes, the you today is just a body occupied by the forces of darkness, a walking corpse.” Ye Qingyu said regretfully, “The you today had been defeated by death.”
“Haha, young man, you have never died before, so you do not know the terror of death. The feeling of sleeping in that cold coffin, quietly waiting for the end of life, you have not tasted this before. This is why you will have such childish self-righteous thoughts.” The Great Ancient Dragon Emperor was not angered at all. “Given your martial arts cultivation base, you may live for tens of thousands of years, live a long life. It is an enviable age for many, like how I once was, but even in tens of thousands of years, there is still a day you will be exhausted. At that time you will not say such a thing so vehemently.”
Ye Qingyu instinctively opened his mouth to refute, but then he suddenly gave up.
Firstly it was because he really had not tasted the death that the Great Ancient Dragon Emperor had mentioned, and secondly at this moment it was simply not beneficial to say anything more. He did not come here to debate.
“Why did you murder Mister Ren Puyang?” Ye Qingyu asked.
“Oh, Ren Puyang, he is also remarkable. Unfortunately, he had to investigate things that should not be known. If it were you, would you move away the rock that is blocking your path?”
“Then let’s fight.” Ye Qingyu looked incomparably determined.
Around his body were pieces of snowflakes fluttering in the Void, like white spirits. The temperature had plunged at a terrifying speed, and in the air were strange sounds of ice crystals condensing. There were more and more snowflakes gathering around, and in the blink of an eye, the whole Dragon cave was snowing heavily.
“Those who submit to me will prosper, those who oppose me shall perish.” The Great Ancient Dragon Emperor shook his head. “You refused my kindness, I will sever you apart and use your body to refine into the best puppet… Kill!”
Before his voice died away.
Countless masses of black fog gushed out from the huge pyramid tombs, turning into hundreds of Dragon Human shadow figures in midair. They dived down rapidly with a shrill and soul-shaking hiss in the direction of Ye Qingyu and others.
“Block them,” the Great Ancient Dragon Emperor commanded.
The six Great Saint experts of the Dragon Human Race behind him immediately flashed out, trying to block the misty figures.
The thoughts of the Dragon Human Emperor were very simple, soldiers should go against soldiers, generals against generals. He did not want Ye Qingyu to waste yuan qi with these misty shadows, but to deal with the Great Ancient Dragon Emperor in his best state.
In the Void, there were silver flowing lights flashing.
Before the hundreds of shadow figures neared, they were directly shattered by the ice crystal snowflakes in the Void, dissipated into wisps of black fog and disappeared.
“Step back and prepare to protect yourself.”
Ye Qingyu said to the Dragon Human Emperor and the others.
Although the strength of Great Saint experts was unmatched, but in this level of fighting, they could become cannon fodder with the slightest carelessness. It was impossible for them to sway the outcome of the battle, but instead may become a liability. It would be better for them to protect themselves.
“But…” The Dragon Human Emperor wanted to say something.
Ye Qingyu waved his hand, “Follow the plan we discussed before, the other things leave it to me.”
His figure rose step by step, as if he was stepping on the stone steps, and in a flash he was hundreds of meters away from the Great Ancient Dragon Emperor. Standing opposite him, he was displaying his power to its full extent, like a silver moon, accompanied by snowflakes. The silver light was dancing and flowing beautifully, which, against Ye Qingyu’s white robe, made him look ethereal, like an Immortal.
“Come, I don’t think you’re going to say the real reason for murdering Mister Ren Puyang. After I kill you, I will have a way to know.” Ye Qingyu directly summoned out the [Blood Drinker Sword Pill], transforming it into a blood-coloured ice-striped sword, with the tip pointing at the Great Ancient Dragon Emperor.
“You don’t deserve to be my opponent, win against my battle puppets first.” The Great Ancient Dragon Emperor slowly drew back, dissipating over the golden black pyramid.
At the same time, there were wisps of black flames rising from the pyramid tombs, turning into eight purple-golden armor-clad Dragon Human figures. Each figure was wearing a crown and dressed in Emperor’s clothing. The facial features of each figure were extremely lifeless, as though carved from jade, without the slightest life force. It turned out they were all corpses, not only that but corpses from the ancient times.
Their bodies were all surging with terrifying dark forces.
It was this dark force that powered the corpses.
“Grand Emperor Mingren, Grand Emperor Zhaoli, Grand Emperor Qinche…” The Dragon Human Emperor trembled upon seeing the sight.
Because these corpses that had been corroded and controlled by the dark forces were past Emperors of the Dragon Human Race. The incomparably respected Emperors of the Dragon Human Race had been refined into battle corpses. In particular, Grand Emperor Mingren was the biological father of the Great Ancient Dragon Emperor, yet was also refined into a battle corpse.
It was just insane.
“Granduncle, how could you have done this, you… you betrayed the Dragon Human Race.” The Dragon Human Emperor was infuriated, “You’re also the Emperor of the Dragon Human Race, why did you do this?”
However, the Great Ancient Dragon Emperor did not respond to the descendant at all.
The sound of rusty iron being rubbed against each other sounded from the Dragon Human Emperor corpses, and then they instantly charged toward Ye Qingyu.
Boom! Boom! Boom!
Ye Qingyu held the sword in his right hand, and curled his left hand into a fist.
The [Great Light Dragon Punch] was launched out.
The Dragon Human Emperor corpses were sent flying away.
But they were just sent flying away.
How terrifying was the power of the [Great Light Dragon Punch], which could crush Great Saint experts in an instant, but the eight Dragon Human Emperor corpses, who had forcibly withstood the power of the fist, were only sent flying hundreds of meters. Their armour was crushed, leaked out black mist from their haggard body, but without the slightest injury.
A mechanical and cold voice sounded.
The Dragon Human Emperor’s corpses came charging over again.
Ye Qingyu’s face darkened, and the [Blood Drinker Sword] drew a light arc.
A clang of metal meeting metal resounded.
“Huh? Can’t break it?” Ye Qingyu drew back, evading the attack of the Dragon Human Emperor corpses.
The sharpness of the [Blood Drinker Sword] still couldn’t break the corpses?
Something was not right; something was strange.
Even Immortal gold material could not withstand the strike of the [Blood Drinker Sword]. These Dragon Human Emperor corpses were dead corpses, thus no matter how terrifying their strength was before, no matter how they were strengthened by the dark forces, they shouldn’t had managed to block the attack of the [Blood Drinker Sword].
Ding! Ding! Ding!
Sparks spurted in all directions.
The [Blood Drinker Sword] repeatedly clashed against the Dragon Human Emperor corpses, producing a cluster of sparks, as though it was forging ironware. The sound was deafening, but the sword light only left white marks on the Dragon Human Emperor corpses, and couldn’t break the skin in the slightest.
Ye Qingyu observed carefully and found some clues.
As the sword light stood above the Dragon Human Emperor corpses, the surface of their skin suddenly emitted a pale yellow glow, which counteracted the majority of the power of the [Blood Drinker Sword].
This… the qi of the Emperor.
Ye Qingyu looked deep in thought.
The qi of the Emperor was incomparably mysterious, containing a divine power that even some martial arts yuan qi and even the power of the law could not match up to, because it was carrying the power of worship and belief of all beings in Heaven and earth.
These Dragon Human Emperor corpses were born as the Emperors of the Dragon Human Race, and had received the worship and belief of all people. They were the Emperor of the common people. Their bodies contained the imperial qi. It was because of this reason that the Great Ancient Dragon Emperor had been lurking in the Dragon cave mausoleum, refining the bodies of these past emperors into dark battle puppets.
Therefore these Dragon Human Emperor corpses were simply almost invincible.
The Great Ancient Dragon Emperor really was terrifying.
At the same time, there were howls echoing around the dragon cavern space like the mournful screams of the dead. Black misty shadows appeared, as if the Dragon Human experts that were buried in the Dragon cave mausoleum had been resurrected, and were charging toward the Dragon Human Emperor and the others.
The Dragon Human Emperor roared, his dragon robe erupted out with infinite light that formed into a light barrier, obstructing the misty shadows, “Look for a location to bury the dragon imprisonment wood in order to sever the dragon qi and imperial qi.”
The six Great Saint experts of the Dragon Human Race all summoned out protective weapons, turned into streams of light, and scattered around the Dragon cave.
The plan they discussed before was that, Ye Qingyu would block the Great Ancient Dragon Emperor, while the Dragon Human Emperor and others would bury the dragon imprisonment wood in the Dragon cave to restrain and cut off the dragon qi and imperial qi. By doing so it would reduce the power of the Great Ancient Dragon Emperor and change the Feng Shui energy of the Dragon cave.
“It ends here.”
Ye Qingyu bellowed. The [Blood Drinker Sword] was flowing with the purple qi of Quasi-emperor Mushan, and with the slash of this sword, the sword light transformed into eight parts, each containing indescribable profound mystery.
In the midst of the gentle noise, the eight Dragon Human Emperor corpses were destroyed, splitting into two.
The power of a Quasi-emperor was after all, unmatched.
“Come out to battle.” Ye Qingyu’s figure, like a stream of light, was diving down towards the huge black gold pyramid with the imposing manner of an Immortal to force the Great Ancient Dragon Emperor out.
“Hahahaha…” The icy cold laughter of the Great Ancient Dragon Emperor sounded. “Childish, do you think you have won? I obviously have more than this.”
