Chapter 1330 - Breaking Through the Barrier At All Costs
The Eastern Divine Region, outside the Star G.o.d Realm.
The Brahma Heaven G.o.d Emperor and the Eternal Heaven G.o.d Emperor, the two people who possessed the highest status and power in the vast Eastern Divine Region, were presently standing at the borders of the Star G.o.d Realm. As they looked at the Absolute Star Soul Barrier, the expressions on the two great G.o.d emperor’s faces were not calm at all.
Even though the Absolute Star Soul Barrier had been opened, the dimensional profound formations which connected the four great king realms had not been closed. At this moment, a light flashed from within a profound formation and a person who was bathed in brilliant moonlight slowly walked out of it.
The Moon G.o.d Emperor!
Three of the four great G.o.d emperors of the Eastern Divine Region had gathered here without any prior arrangements.
“Heh heh, it looks like you finally couldn’t bear just sitting around after all,” the Brahma Heaven G.o.d Emperor said with a laugh.
The Moon G.o.d Emperor was not the least bit surprised that the Brahma Heaven G.o.d Emperor and the Eternal Heaven G.o.d Emperor were here as well. He stared at the Absolute Star Soul Barrier, but even given his power, his spiritual senses were not able to penetrate it. He turned his head and asked, “The Star G.o.d Realm is preparing to hold some momentous event. I would ask the two G.o.d emperors here if either of you have a clue as to what is going on?”
“Even the Absolute Star Soul Barrier has already been activated, so no one will be able to probe or find out anything. How can it be possible for us to find any clues,” the Eternal Heaven G.o.d Emperor said. “The last time the Absolute Star Soul Barrier appeared, it was at the very beginning of the Star G.o.d Realm, when they had been establis.h.i.+ng the realm. Furthermore, they opened it that time because it concerned their life or death, so they had no choice but to do so. For them to open it once again today… it is definitely some momentous event concerning their destiny.”
If the destiny of the Star G.o.d Realm truly changed, then it would not concern only the Star G.o.d Realm themselves, it would definitely cause the power structure that presently existed among the four great king realms in the Eastern Divine Region to change. As a result, the three great G.o.d emperors could not simply stay put and calmly watch it happen.
All three great G.o.d emperors knitted their brows before the Brahma Heaven G.o.d Emperor spoke, “The Absolute Star Soul Barrier is definitely consuming an extremely large amount of resources. Now that it has already been opened for several days, they should not be able to keep it open for much longer. At that time, everything will come to light.”
It was just that they were well aware that the day the Absolute Star Soul Barrier was closed would also be the time when everything was finished. The result at that time would be something they basically would not be able to predict at this moment, nor would they be able to change it.
At this time, an abnormal energy wave came from the west and it was approaching at an extremely fast speed.
The three G.o.d emperors looked to the side at this same time, “This aura is…”
The Moon G.o.d Emperor’s reaction was the greatest. He nearly instantly turned around and his brows sank as he exclaimed, “The Vanis.h.i.+ng Moon Celestial Palace!?”
The Vanis.h.i.+ng Moon Celestial Palace’s top speed was something that even the G.o.d emperors themselves would find hard to match. Yun Che had sped straight here from the Dragon G.o.d Realm. From the start of his journey until now, the Vanis.h.i.+ng Moon Celestial Palace had maintained its fastest speed and it had not slowed down or stopped for even a second.
To be able to fly from the Dragon G.o.d Realm straight to the Star G.o.d Realm in a short three days, if a person was operating on common sense and knowledge, even if they were dreaming, they would not believe that such a speed was possible. But to Yun Che, this was still so slow that a breath seemed like a year to him.
The Celestial Time Jade that he had obtained from the Profound G.o.d Convention, the object that he had originally thought did not have much use, had instead repeatedly become the last straw that he could clutch at. Initially, it helped him escape Qianye and Gu Zhu and helped him reach the Forbidden Land of Samsara… Now, it had brought him to the Star G.o.d Realm in a miraculous amount of time.
The speed of the Vanis.h.i.+ng Moon Celestial Palace was many times more outstanding and quick than a meteor streaking through the aether. A sonic boom, so sharp it could rend a large amount of s.p.a.ce around it, rang out in the air and the Vanis.h.i.+ng Moon Celestial Palace abruptly burst into the vision of the three great G.o.d emperors as it arrived...
After that, it fiercely slammed against the surface of the Absolute Star Soul Barrier.
What did it mean to ram something at the fastest speed in the universe? The sound produced in that one instant of collision was akin to the sound of stars colliding and the energy flow within an entire five hundred kilometer radius was thrown into complete and utter chaos, generating countless storms which were on the level of a calamity.
The Absolute Star Soul Barrier remained imposing and motionless despite that grand impact, and even if its center was rammed, not a single scratch would be left behind.
But the Vanis.h.i.+ng Moon Celestial Palace was still the Vanis.h.i.+ng Moon Celestial Palace. It had been flipped backwards by that peerlessly dreadful impact and there were no obvious signs of damage on it either. But Yun Che was not in good shape at all, the overly-dreadful impact had smashed him in the chest like a huge weight, causing him to puke out fresh blood then and there. However, he did not even bother to regulate his energy or blood, his eyes glaring rigidly at the Star G.o.d Realm that was right in front of him. After that he let out a loud yell, “He Ling, we’re off!”
He Ling transformed into a beam of dark-green light and returned to the Sky Poison Pearl and in the same instant, Yun Che ejected himself out of the Vanis.h.i.+ng Moon Celestial Palace as he rushed straight towards the Star G.o.d Realm.
Even though the dreadful impact had generated storms that blanketed a five hundred kilometer radius, it naturally did not faze any of the three G.o.d emperors. The moment Yun Che’s figure appeared, the eyes and auras of the three G.o.d emperors locked onto him, and all of them had shocked expressions on their faces.
At that time, Yun Che was not able to enter the Eternal Heaven Pearl and his location was unknown, but a year had pa.s.sed and that was enough time for the Eastern Divine Region to figure out where he had gone. After all, there were quite a few people in the Dragon G.o.d Realm who would recognize the Vanis.h.i.+ng Moon Celestial Palace.
Thus, they all already knew that Yun Che was presently in the Dragon G.o.d Realm and it was very likely that he was still under the protection of the Dragon Monarch… After all, the Dragon Monarch had wanted to take him as a foster son in front of everyone at that time.
This was especially true for the Brahma Heaven G.o.d Emperor, he not only knew that Yun Che was in the Dragon G.o.d Realm, he had also known that he was located in the Forbidden Land of Samsara. Because the only one under heaven who could get rid of the Brahma Soul Death-Wis.h.i.+ng Mark was Dragon Queen Shen Xi who resided in the Forbidden Land of Samsara.
Obtaining the protection of Dragon Queen Shen Xi was a hundred times harder to believe than obtaining the protection of the Dragon Monarch!
Qianye Ying’er clearly knew that Yun Che was most definitely within the Forbidden Land of Samsara, and she also knew that he was getting rid of the Brahma Soul Death-Wis.h.i.+ng Mark that she had paid no small price to cast on him, yet she had never once thought of grabbing Yun Che back from the Dragon G.o.d Realm. Furthermore, it was not that she would not enter the Forbidden Land of Samsara, it was that she was not able to… or perhaps it would be better to say that she did not dare to.
Provoking the ire of the Dragon Monarch… was in the end just simply provoking his ire. Furthermore, as the supreme ruler of all under heaven, a vast existence, he would not necessarily be willing to get into an argument with a woman who was his junior. Moreover, as long as one did not touch his bottom line, the Dragon Monarch would also definitely not be willing to have a falling out with the Brahma Monarch G.o.d Realm.
But if you provoked the ire of Dragon Queen Shen Xi… then that Dragon Monarch, who reigned supreme over everything under heaven and proudly gazed over the entire Primal Chaos, would immediately become a crazed dragon! Furthermore, it was the world’s most dreadful crazed dragon.
This was definitely not simply a joke, because Dragon Queen Shen Xi was the reverse scale and the bottom line of the Dragon Monarch that one definitely could not touch. This was a point that was publically known to the Dragon G.o.d Realm tens of thousands of years ago. In fact, it was something that was known to the entire G.o.d Realm.
(So, if Yun Che did not leave the Forbidden Land of Samsara for the rest of his life, then he would be able to live the rest of his life safely and peacefully, and even if he wanted to experience danger, it would be difficult… The caveat being that the Dragon Monarch did not find out about the special relations.h.i.+p between him and Shen Xi.)
The three great G.o.d emperors looked to the side at the same time while Yun Che’s eyes swept across them as well. But his body did not stop at all as he rushed straight for the Absolute Star Soul Barrier.
Furthermore, when his gaze had swept across them, the three great G.o.d emperors felt their hearts thump at the same time.
Because his pupils were actually as scarlet as blood.
Upon seeing that Yun Che was safe and sound, the Eternal Heaven G.o.d Emperor, who had always felt regret over Yun Che, felt his heart relax greatly. He moved forward and hailed him, “Yun Che, why are you… Wait, wait! That is the Absolute Star Soul Barrier!”
As he watched Yun Che rush towards the Absolute Star Soul Barrier at full speed, the Eternal Heaven G.o.d Emperor swiftly yelled out to stop him. But in the next instant, right before the three great G.o.d emperor’s very eyes, they witnessed Yun Che’s body actually slip through the Absolute Star Soul Barrier that they were unable to break after pausing for an instant. After that he flew into the distance.
“This…” The Eternal Heaven G.o.d Emperor had been rendered completely stupefied.
The Brahma Heaven G.o.d Emperor’s body flashed and he arrived at the spot where Yun Che had pa.s.sed through the Absolute Star Soul Barrier. His hand came into contact with it, but it was instantly repelled by the barrier. His brows sank slightly as he said, “The only people who can pa.s.s through the Absolute Star Soul Barrier in such a manner are the Twelve Star G.o.ds. Could it be that… Yun Che’s body contains the blood essence of one of the Star G.o.ds?”
The blood essence of a Star G.o.d was extremely precious and it was not something that one would easily gift to others. But they had personally witnessed Yun Che directly crossing through the Absolute Star Soul Barrier… Other than that, there could be no other explanation.
“He should have been in the Dragon G.o.d Realm, yet he suddenly appeared here, his expression was hurried and fl.u.s.tered, and he even pa.s.sed through the Absolute Star Soul Barrier… this definitely has something to do with the momentous event that is happening within the Star G.o.d Realm,” the Eternal Heaven G.o.d Emperor said with furrowed brows. “But what exactly is going on?”
Upon recalling that the Yun Che had not chosen that Brahma Heaven G.o.d Realm during the Profound G.o.d Convention, but had chosen the Star G.o.d Realm instead and how he had not hesitated at all to follow the Star G.o.d Emperor back to the Star G.o.d Realm… The Eternal Heaven G.o.d Emperor immediately turned pensive.
However, the Moon G.o.d Emperor had slightly more complex feelings in his heart. Upon seeing Yun Che fly into the distance, he sighed silently in his heart and thought: Qingyue actually gave the Vanis.h.i.+ng Moon Celestial Palace to him… Sigh, in the end, she was still a girl.
During the moment he pa.s.sed through the Absolute Star Soul Barrier, Yun Che’s breathing and heartbeat had practically stopped as he desperately prayed for it to work… Finally, a miracle happened and his body directly pa.s.sed through the Absolute Star Soul Barrier, and he had not even felt any obvious resistance when he had done so.
When Jasmine had left at that time, she had left behind a drop of her Star G.o.d blood. The message she left behind told Yun Che that this drop of Star G.o.d blood could strengthen his body and increase his lifespan. But in reality, it was simply her selfish desire to have a part of her own body mixed with his forevermore, never to part from him.
The her at that time would definitely not have imagined that this drop of Star G.o.d blood essence she had left Yun Che would actually allow Yun Che to pa.s.s through a barrier of despair that he should not ever have been able to pa.s.s through, and she could not have imagined that this act would also completely change her and Yun Che’s lives.
Upon entering the Star G.o.d Realm, Yun Che swiftly summoned out the Vanis.h.i.+ng Moon Celestial Palace yet again as he flew towards Star G.o.d City, which lay in the middle of the realm, at maximum speed.
Jasmine, wait for me… I definitely will not allow you to be wilful by yourself...
Definitely will not...
A streak of light shot across the skies of the Star G.o.d Realm, it was so fast that most of the powerhouses within the Star G.o.d Realm could barely make it out with their eyes, much less attempt to chase after or restrain it.
The territory occupied by the Star G.o.d Realm was not too big and before long, the second Absolute Star Soul Barrier had appeared in front of Yun Che. After he pa.s.sed through this Absolute Star Soul Barrier, he would arrive in the Star G.o.d City he had visited before.
His goal was right before him. He did not know what was happening inside and he did not know whether Jasmine was safe or not. The only thing he did know was that he was going towards his own ending.
However his heart did not contain any fear or terror, and even the anxiety that had flooded every corner of his heart and soul had started to swiftly fade away at this moment, as a mysterious and unfathomable calm settled over him.
With another gigantic explosion, the Vanis.h.i.+ng Moon Celestial Palace once again slammed against the Absolute Star Soul Barrier
The profound light that shone from the center of Star G.o.d City spread through the sky and following the launching of the ceremony, all of the Star G.o.ds’ and elders’ power and bodies were firmly tethered to the sacrificial formation. Before the ceremony ended, they would be completely immobile and they would also not be able to retrieve their powers… Even trying to forcibly interrupt this ceremony would be absolutely impossible.
A strange change started to happen to the barrier that surrounded them and the barrier that sealed Jasmine and Caizhi in. Following the concentration of all that power, the two barriers had become even more tough and durable than the Absolute Star Soul Barrier. So if anyone wanted to interrupt at this moment, even if the other three G.o.d emperors of the Eastern Divine Region arrived in this place, they would not be able to do anything whatsoever.
An incomparably heavy energy shot out from all directions as it covered every inch of Jasmine and Caizhi’s bodies and souls. Under the direction of the blood sacrifice formation, this energy would slowly peel away their bodies, souls, and power. After that, these things would combine with the Star G.o.d Emperor, giving rise to the “transformation” that they all hoped for.
Under this dreadful power, Jasmine and Caizhi had been completely suppressed, they were unable to muster even the slightest bit of strength to struggle. They would not be able to end their own lives even if they wanted to, much less flee.
“Big Sister, I got you into this mess… I got you into this mess…”
Caizhi’s eyes were empty and she was completely dazed as she kept repeating those words over and over again… Her mind had collapsed, her world had collapsed and everything had turned so dark and gloomy...
The day that she had succeeded in inheriting the Heavenly Wolf divine power and she had felt that unfathomably strong power rush through her body, she had been elated and content. Because she would no longer be looked down on or bullied by other people, would no longer be pathetic and helpless. And during the last few years after Jasmine had returned, she had hoped to become even stronger, so that she could protect Big Sister in the future...
But it turned out that everything… was just a deep abyss and a nightmare...
She had instead harmed her very last family member...
At this time, Caizhi had fallen into the state that Jasmine had always been the most worried about and the most afraid to see. She used all the strength she had left in her body as she softly whispered, “Caizhi, it’s not your fault, it’s mine. I was too stupid… To actually believe that this old villain actually still had some humanity left… I was far too stupid… I should have long ago brought you with me… and fled as far away as we possibly could, never to return…”
Whether it was regret or hatred… all of it was far too late.
Yun Che’s figure flashed in her mind, causing Jasmine to close her eyes painfully. An important reason for her to forcefully marry Caizhi off to Yun Che was to curb his hatred and resentment… She understood Yun Che far too well, if Yun Che ever discovered that she had been sacrificed in the future, he would definitely bear an extreme hatred for the Star G.o.d Realm, and he would lose his mind and rationality in order to take revenge.
She hoped that at that time, Yun Che would still remember that Caizhi was his wife and remember the vows that he had made so that he would not act in too irrational a manner.
But right now, it was not only her, even Caizhi was going to share her fate. So when Yun Che learned of everything in the future, it would instead… increase his hatred, resentment, and his frenzy.
Yun Che, please live well from now on, no matter what… Even if you want to take revenge for Caizhi and I, you still need to live on.
This was her last worry and hope… It was just that all of these things would be completely shattered in a few short breaths.
Following the sound of an incomparably gigantic impact, a human figure hurtled downwards from the skies above Star G.o.d City.
