Chapter 51 - All Laws Breaks Before the Peac.o.c.k Plumes
Under the 28x28 Heaven and Earth Grand Array, Gu Hai's army resurrected endlessly. Even if they were destroyed, they would be reborn in no time. The huge army that had rushed into the array was heavily surrounded immediately. The cloud beasts under them were cut down one after another, raining the humans down like a squall. The cloud beasts in the outer ring, on the other hand, fled in helter-skelter fas.h.i.+on.
In a flash, the hearts of the cultivators surrounding the 28x28 Heaven and Earth Grand Array were pounding like crazy, and their faces painted with a horrified look. The cultivators no longer dared to rush into the array for a long time.
Standing behind Gu Hai, Gao Xianzhi, Chen Tianshan, and Little Rou had looks of excitement on their faces watching the shocking reversal.
"Your Grace, this array is too formidable!" praised Gao Xianzhi excitedly.
"Your Grace, where did you learn this?" Chen Tianshan was excited as well as confused.
At this instant, Chen Tianshan's mentality had turned completely. Gu Hai's strength had etched itself deeply into everyone's heart.
Little Rou kept on giggling in happiness.
Gu Hai looked all around him. Suddenly, the valiant general underneath him shouted, "Weiqi Empyrean Court disciples, listen up, there are six days left. I will destroy the Hundred Years Longevity Peach Tree after six days!"
Listening to the loud declaration of the valiant general, the cultivators had ugly looks on their faces.
Where in the b.l.o.o.d.y h.e.l.l did this Gu Hai come from? How is he so monstrous?
Meng Tai, who was not too far away, had a baffled look in his eyes. "Gu Hai? How can he arrange such a grand array?"
Ninth Young Master's countenance bore ever more indignation. This time I wasn't reckless. I tempted tens of thousands of cultivators to attack the array, and yet, why weren't they his match?
"Gu Hai?" Ninth Young Master was anxious as well as furious.
At a square of a palace in a mountain valley...
The sickly young man stood next to the Great Elder.
"Cough! Cough! Cough! Cough!" The sickly young man covered his mouth with the handkerchief as he started hacking.
"28x28 Heaven and Earth Grand Array? That's an array arranged by Grandmaster in the past, how can Gu Hai arrange it?" wondered Great Elder in a heavy tone.
The sickly young man narrowed his eyes, gazing at the sky, "In the end, it was all for naught. This Guy Hai is quite troublesome!"
"It all started with Wei Shengren, if not...!" Great Elder remained silent for a bit.
"No, chuckle, no one can compel my Weiqi Empyrean Court to compromise. Gu Hai is still far from enough!" said the sickly young man, laughing coldly.
"I was counting on them, but very well, I will go, cough, cough, cough, cough!" The sickly young man started coughing.
"Wait a minute, look there!" suddenly, Great Elder said with surprise.
"Great Wisdom King?" the sickly young man's eyes immediately became focused.
They saw a black-robed man far away, slowly flying into the sky, without any support or using a golden weiqi piece.
This flying silhouette drew the surprised gazes of countless cultivators all around.
"Isn't cultivation suppressed here? How can he fly with Xiantian Stage cultivation?"
"Who is he?"
"What is he planning to do? How can he fly?"...
Countless cultivators cast surprised glances his way, looking at the sun-patterned, black-robed Great Wisdom King, worried and uncertain.
In front of a hundred zhang-tall cloud beast, Great Wisdom King's figure looked extremely small; yet such a small figure surprised numerous cultivators. After all, even in the outside world, one had to at least be in the Nascent Soul Stage for them to fly like this; how could he actually fly like that in here?
The cloud beasts gave way to Great Wisdom King one after another as he arrived.
Seemingly forming a ripple effect, the cultivators all around gave way one by one, letting Great Wisdom King approach the array.
Great Wisdom King's figure came to a halt, stopping at the outer ring of the ma.s.sive array. His black robe slightly fluttered in the wind as he stood there, quietly gazing at the array.
Inside the array, Gu Hai's expression flickered...
He could feel a pair of eyes staring at him, even though Great Wisdom King was dressed in a black robe and his appearance wasn’t clear.
"How did he do it? Isn't cultivation suppressed to the Xiantian Stage?" Chen Tianshan's facial features distorted.
"Return to the commander position as I told you!" said Gu Hai in a solemn tone.
"Yes, Your Grace!" answered Gao Xianzhi.
Gao Xianzhi, Chen Tianshan, and Little Rou controlled their respective valiant generals and quickly scattered away. Gu Hai, who was staring coldly towards the outer ring, was left behind to command the army.
"Gu Hai? Pretty well done arranging this 28x28 Heaven and Earth Grand Array!" praised Great Wisdom King, laughing lightly.
His laughter was very light, yet it spread to everyone's ears strangely, startling countless cultivators.
"You aren't a Weiqi Empyrean Court disciple!? Who are you?" asked Gu Hai in a somber manner.
"If you can survive my hand, I will tell you!" said Great Wisdom King calmly.
Gu Hai's expression turned cold as he said, "Your Excellency, do you want the Hundred Years Longevity Peach Tree?"
"Hundred Years Longevity Peach Tree? Chuckle, I don't want such a troublesome thing, I only want to kill you, nothing more, nothing less!" said Great Wisdom King, chuckling.
Gu Hai's expression flickered as he said, "You want to kill me? I believe I have never been acquainted with Your Excellency, right?"
"I never needed a reason to kill, it just depends on my mood! Are you ready? I am going to start, you must go all out! Hahaha!" stated Great Wisdom King, breaking into a laugh.
Gu Hai's countenance turned cold, "Your Excellency, perhaps you are joking, this array of mine can mobilize the strength of heaven and earth rules!"
"Had it not been able to do so, I would have been too lazy to kill you myself. 28x28 Heaven and Earth Grand Array!? This array is nothing! Divine beam!" answered the Great Wisdom King in a cold tone.
Suddenly, ten pillars of azure light soared into the sky behind Great Wisdom King. Each pillar was a thousand zhang long. Once the azure pillars of light appeared, half of the sky was painted sky blue.
A breathtaking aura immediately burst forth from the ten blue pillars of light, sending the cultivators around into retreat again and again as the looks on their faces changed frantically.
"What's that? Peac.o.c.k plumes?" Suddenly, the countenances of countless cultivators flickered.
The ten azure pillars of light were in the shape of peac.o.c.k plumes, pointing at the sky, displaying an ominous aura.
A chill spread from the thousand zhang long peac.o.c.k plumes, and a frozen mist condensed around them in the sky.
A serious look appeared on Gu Hai's face as stretched his hand out. "Line up and resist the enemy!"
Thousands of soldiers let out a battle cry as they charged straight towards the Great Wisdom King outside, wielding their sabers.
"That's some morale you have there! All-Law Breaking Azure Plumes, destroy it for me!" said the Great Wisdom King, waving his hand.
Suddenly, the thousand-zhang long peac.o.c.k plumes swung down towards the array, towards the army charging straight at him.
Dazzling beams of azure light bloomed with the sweep of peac.o.c.k plumes, shooting straight at the array, painting the heaven and earth in cerulean.
The grand array wobbled fiercely with a loud crash as the ten peac.o.c.k plumes swished towards the soldiers.
A team of soldiers at the forefront immediately slashed their sabers towards the peac.o.c.k plumes.
A shockwave fiercely shook the clouds array with a loud crash. Unexpectedly, a team of dozens of soldiers could only block the peac.o.c.k plumes for a moment before ultimately collapsing.
Having attacked once, the peac.o.c.k plumes returned to readiness.
"Oh? A bit interesting, really! Hahaha! That's more like it!" Great Wisdom King's voice had a tint of savagery.
The peac.o.c.k plumes swept out once again, just like a long whip. This time, the strikes were even fiercer, the sapphire glow emanating from them was even more dazzling.
Inside the array, Gu Hai's facial features distorted as he controlled a large troop of soldiers to charge yet again.
The array shook fiercely with a loud crash as about a hundred soldiers once again burst apart.
"Oh? It seems it is still insufficient. Then, how about a bit more?" said the Great Wisdom King happily.
Retracting the stretched hand holding the scepter, the Great Wisdom King waved his left hand. Immediately after, ten more thousand-zhang long peac.o.c.k plumes emerged behind him, while the previous ten plumes went to left side of his body.
At this moment, the Great Wisdom King appeared to be holding ten peac.o.c.k plumes in each hand and whipping them with a bang, like two bundles of thousand-zhang giant whips.
"Break!" shouted the Great Wisdom King.
The cloud array shook with a loud bang. The subsequent impact created from the two sweeps of peac.o.c.k plumes was also incomparably huge, and had scattered one-tenth of the clouds array immediately. These two strikes had blasted approximately a thousand soldiers away.
"What?" The eyes of countless cultivators all around had long gone wide in shock.
Just the two whips by that black-robed man had destroyed nearly a thousand mounted soldiers cloud beasts!? Who in the b.l.o.o.d.y h.e.l.l was he? Could the power of a one man alone be so mighty?
How was this possible? Wasn't everyone's cultivation suppressed to Xiantian Stage in this world?
"Endless resurrection!" shouted Gu Hai as his facial features became distorted.
The clouds all around recondensed rapidly as a large number of soldiers reborn.
The Great Wisdom King whipped the peac.o.c.k plumes faster and faster, seemingly creating an azure storm that constantly destroyed the clouds array.
Grand array, so what? The peac.o.c.k plumes will break all laws forcefully with a swing!
"Endless resurrection? Let's see whether your endless resurrection is faster or my destruction of your array is faster, BREAK!" shouted the Great Wisdom King.
An azure beam of light swept over with an earth-shattering crash, reducing the clouds array by a fifth!
"Endless Resurrection!" Gu Hai's countenance worsened by a lot.
"Still insufficient? This time my strength is bigger, let's go again, hahaha!" the Great Wisdom King said as he broke into laughter.
Two peac.o.c.k plumes combined into one, giving the impression as if it would completely destroy the entire array immediately.
Gu Hai's expression twisted. Has this guy gone nuts?
"Gao Xianzhi, all of you, watch all sides!" said Gu Hai in a loud voice.
The horse underneath Gu Hai whinnied as it approached the peac.o.c.k plumes.
The valiant general underneath Gu Hai waved the Fang Tian Hua halberd in his hands to greet the attack. Suddenly, nearly a thousand soldiers around him charged into the valiant general's location, seemingly fusing with the valiant general before disappearing into nothing. Immediately, the valiant general's stature tripled, spreading an ominous aura all around as it stepped forward.
Looking at the incoming peac.o.c.k plumes, the Fang Tian Hua halberd clashed on with it with a loud bang.
"Finally, you are going to take point? However, you're too late! Under the azure plume, all law will be destroyed, CUT!" the Great Wisdom King fiercely put forth all his strength while shouting coldly, as a billowing slaughter qi charged straight at Gu Hai.
In response, a savage look showed up on the valiant general's face. An ominous aura bloomed from the Fang Tian Hua halberd in his hand as it welcomed the peac.o.c.k plume.
"With such big strength, I can remove a mountain; With the lofty quality, I am matchless in the world!" yelled the valiant general.
As he yelled, the entire clouds array shook fiercely, seemingly gathering countless strands of power at the Fang Tian Hua halberd before it slashed towards the peac.o.c.k plume with a loud crash.
With a loud crash, a billowing storm spread in all directions. The nearby cloud beasts were immediately blown away by the storm. The loud explosion even momentarily deafened the hearing of countless cultivators, filling their ears with the ringing.
Even the ground below wasn't spared by the ma.s.sive storm. All the vegetation on the ground had been uprooted instantly.
Unexpectedly, no one seemed to have triumphed over the other in this clash between Fang Tian Hua halberd and peac.o.c.k plume.
Gu Hai's countenance changed.
"None of the people I want to kill have ever escaped. I hope you fight hard and die! Come again, let me see how powerful your valiant general is!" said the Great Wisdom King coldly.
"Under the azure plume, all law will be destroyed, CUT!"
"With such big strength, I can remove a mountain; With the lofty quality, I am matchless in the world!"
The grand array shook with a loud crash as the Great Wisdom King drove the peac.o.c.k plumes to fiercely clash with the valiant general of Gu Hai. Each clash between them sent an ominous shock wave in all directions. Neither fell back. In a flash, the battlefield grew tighter.
However, the strength of Great Wisdom King only grew stronger and stronger.
Gu Hai had no choice but to fuse more and more soldiers with the valiant general. Only with the fusion of more and more soldiers could he continue the battle.
A savage look showed up on Gu Hai's face; he did not concede even a bit because he understood that this guy was mad. If he conceded, he would die for sure! Each and every impact also strengthened the fighting intent of Great Wisdom King even more.
The intense shockwaves in the sky awed the countless cultivators all around the world.
But very soon, the look of awe in the eyes of cultivators was replaced by greed.
Gu Hai is pinned down by that sun-patterned black-robed man. Can't I rob the Hundred Years Longevity Peach Tree by taking advantage of this situation?
Meng Tai, Ninth Young Master, and countless other cultivators turned their greedy gazes towards the center of the array together.
"Come on, let's take advantage of this situation to break through the array!" someone shouted.
