AGM 461 - Calamity of Great Solar Chen Clan
Jun Yu knew that Qin Wentian only had strength enough for a single strike. And that strength to unleash that one fatal strike consisted of the entirety of energy within Qin Wentian's body.
After he executed that strike, Qin Wentian would be totally defenceless, anyone could kill him with ease.
But even so, Jun Yu still unhesitatingly chose to used that defensive treasure his master bestowed. The threat of that sword strike was too great to him, he didn't dare to take the risk.
As that protective stream of astral river appeared, the space around him all curved away. Jun Yu had a sardonic smile on his face as his eyes twinkled with malice, staring at Qin Wentian.
A raging wind gusted past, as Qin Wentian's silhouette disappeared. The force of that sword finger didn't erupted towards Jun Yu at all.
Qin Wentian only had a single strike. In fact right from the beginning, he had never even intended to use it against Jun Yu.
That sardonic smile on his face abruptly twisted as boiling flames exploded in Jun Yu's heart. He trembled violently as white froth bubbled out of his mouth, as though he had just received the greatest humiliation in his life ever.
He was someone from the Royal Sacred Sect, yet he was pranked by a member of the junior generation in Grand Xia?
The current smile on Qin Wentian's face was akin to a sneer. It was as though Qin Wentian was telling him that he couldn't be bothered and disdained to use this sword strike against him.
And although Qin Wentian didn't unleashed that sword strike on him, Jun Yu had already wasted a priceless life-saving treasure.
To Qin Wentian, he only had a single opportunity to unleash that strike of overwhelming destruction. Regardless of what status Jun Yu had, or how great his background is, Jun Yu was after all only an Ascendant at the first level of Celestial Phenomenon. Since Qin Wentian only had a single strike, he would naturally target his attack at a character that could direct the flow of battle here today.
And this character, was none other than the Ancestor of the Great Solar Chen Clan.
Without the participation of the Ouyang Aristocrat Clan and Jiang Clan, there was basically no one who can hold the Chen Clan Ancestor back. With his strength, only a total of three Ascendants joining forces could hold him back.
Only through killing the Chen Ancestor would they be able to reverse the situation today. Hence, Qin Wentian had constantly been transmitting messages together with Fairy Qingmei and the rest.
At the instant Qin Wentian acted, the three Ascendants as well as the Seven Slaughter Puppets struck out at the Chen Ancestor at the same time. They completely ignored the clan lord of Chen Clan. With the four Ascendants used their strongest attack with the Chen Ancestor at the centre of their crossfire. Underneath the mounting pressure, the Chen Ancestor howled as radiant blazing suns erupted into being all around him. The rays of the suns shone brilliantly, condensing into a shield of sunlight, blocking the tyrannical attacks. The light erupted was so blinding that no one could look straight at it.
"Too powerful, a third level Celestial Phenomenon Ascendant can truly be called a character standing at the very peak. The joint attacks of three Ascendants, in addition to that of the Seven Slaughter Puppets, still had no way to break through his defense." The spectators silently mused in their hearts.
And at this very moment, in another direction, the sword strike which Qin Wentian wanted to unleash at Jun Yu, suddenly shifted direction and stabbed out in the direction of the Chen Ancestor.
A massive wind kicked up in Heaven and Earth, the entire space turned eerily silent, as though Qin Wentian's finger was the only thing remaining in this world. An invisible and formless energy transformed into an immortal slaying sword, firing forth, aiming right for the Chen Ancestor.
This sword was formed by both the Heaven and Earth, while powered by the entirety of energy in Qin Wentian's body. After that sword was unleashed, Qin Wentian's body sagged, totally devoid of energy as he fell down from the skies. To unleash this strike, he has already exhausted the last remaining traces of energy he could muster. Even his resolute will as well as his killing intent was merged into that final strike of his.
The instant the sword strike was unleashed, the conviction in his heart was being shot out together as well. His body couldn't endure anymore, and like a falling leaf, he drifted helplessly in the middle of a terrifying windstorm.
However, right now, the attention of the crowd was no longer focused on him. Their focuses were all onto that immortal slaying sword.
That sword penetrated through the void, piercing through space as a beautiful line of flames trailed after it. It was too swift, too swift to the extent of being inconceivable.
The instant Qin Wentian changed his target, the Chen Ancestor already felt that there was a sword pointing right at him. His countenance instantly paled, and with a roar of rage, the light from his constellation cascaded down on him. The thousands of blazing suns around him all shone with an increased radiance, merging together as one as the silhouette of a golden crow appeared.
The expression on the Chen Clan's clan lord's face was similarly extremely unsightly to behold. He slammed a vicious palm into Fairy Qingmei's back, yet the instant the attack landed, Fairy Qingmei's form turned ethereal, allowing the attack to pass through her. Momentarily later, numerous phantoms appeared, all of them simultaneously unleashing their attacks towards the Chen Ancestor.
Several underworld spears appeared in front of the leader of Mystic Moon Sect. All of them fused together as one, transforming into a terrifying spear of darkness, as it stabbed outwards, aiming for the Chen Ancestor.
At this moment, the controller of the Seven Slaughter Puppets was Ouyang Kuangsheng. In the middle of the air, a thunderfire constellation appeared. Vast amounts of astral light emanating forth from his constellation rained down on him, he absorbed all the energy before cleaving down with a single sabre - Thunder God's Slash!
All the attacks were aimed at the Chen Ancestor. And all their effects erupted forth together at the same instant, wanting to reap away his life.
And at this moment, the breathing of everyone seemed to halt. Too swift, Qin Wentian's immortal slaying sword flashed like a bolt of lightning, all within the space of a single thought.
An intense light erupted as the sword pierced through the manifested suns, through the head of the golden crow, aiming right for the heart of the Chen Ancestor. The body of the Chen Ancestor instantly morphed into lava giant. He blocked his chest with one of his hand as his other hand instantly reached out towards the incoming sword.
The immortal slaying sword effortlessly penetrated his palms, and pierced right into the heart of the Chen Ancestor, rupturing it.
The hurried defenses the Chen Ancestor put up simply wasn't enough to block the power of the first stance of the Immortal Vanquishing Swordplay. And at this moment, the attacks from the other Ascendants all continually rained down on him. Fairy Qingmei's phantoms blasted his back, the spear of darkness pierced into his shoulders, while the Thunder God's Slash cleaved onto his head.
The eyes of the crowd widened as they watched the scene play out. The next moment, the body of the Chen Ancestor trembled slightly for an instant, as his head cracked open from the force of the Thunder God's Slash.
A voice filled with unwilling rage vibrated the entire space. His body was shattered into dust as he disappeared forever.
The hearts of everyone stopped, they didn't dared to believe what their eyes were telling them.
The Chen Ancestor had fallen?
A terrifying existence at the third level of Celestial Phenomenon was a character standing at the absolute pinnacle of Grand Xia. The Ouyang Ancestor said before, even if they joined forces nobody could prevail against him
Yet Qin Wentian and the others had actually accomplished the impossible with their efforts.
This was just like a dream, nobody dared to believe that it was real. An existence at the peak of Grand Xia died at the stage where the Heavenly Ranking Battles were held this year.
If people thousands of years later spoke of the events that happened today, they would totally forget that the Heavenly Fate Rankings were held this day. They only remembered that today was the day Qin Wentian slayed an existence at the peak of Grand Xia, albeit with the help of others.
This battle, Qin Wentian unleashed a critical strike. But in fact, the true credit of killing the Chen Ancestor goes to Fairy Qingmei. If it wasn't for her Shadow Glamor Constellation, the three Ascendants would probably have found it impossible to hold off the Chen Ancestor for so long.
"Hu..." Someone heavily exhaled. Even the sound of breathing could clearly be heard in the silence that followed after the death of the Chen Ancestor. Fairy Qingmei spat out a mouthful of blood. Evidently, she had been suppressing the injuries she sustained during the course of her battle with the Chen Ancestor.
However, for those from the Great Solar Chen Clan, they were still staring blankly, stunned with disbelief. Even the Celestial Phenomenon clan lord of the Chen Clan had yet to recover from his daze.
"The ancestor has fallen."
Is this real?
The death of the Chen Ancestor indicated the decline of the Great Solar Chen Clan. In fact, they might even face the possibility of being annihilated.
Earlier, the Great Solar Chen Clan who dominated Ginkou, how proud were they? Arrogance was carved in their bones as they strutted their way through Grand Xia. But right now, their hearts were all shivering with fear and terror.
No matter how many demon-level talents, no matter how much powerful Heavenly Dipper Sovereigns the Great Solar Chen Clan had, without the protection of a mighty Ascendant, all of their strength counted for nothing. Especially the fact that they were one of the nine grand clans of the ancient Grand Xia. How many transcendent powers have they offended from back then? And the wealth of their Great Solar Chen Clan, how many would covet it, with the death of the Chen Clan's Ancestor?
Chen Fan murmured, constantly shaking his head. Even leaving their wealth aside, would the other transcendent powers not be greedy for the Sacred Royal Medallions in their possessions?
Even if Qin Wentian died today, their Chen Clan would be hardpressed to escape from this calamity. They no longer had a way out.
"Go, GO!" The clan lord of Chen Clan abruptly howled, commanding the others from the Chen Clan to leave immediately.
"Freeze." The controller of the Seven Slaughter Puppets changed. Earlier was Ouyang Kuangsheng, now it changed to Yun Mengyi. Once again, the space was frozen.
The all-out war has yet to be concluded.
The silhouettes of the two Ascendants from the Mystic Moon Hall flashed, as they rushed at the clan lord of the Chen Clan. Earlier in the battle, the clan lord had already been injured, and was almost killed by the Seven Slaughters Puppet. Now that he was besieged by the attacks from two Ascendants, he didn't even have time to catch his breath.
Since they had already exterminated the Chen Ancestor, they might as well do things thoroughly, completely eliminating all Ascendants from the Great Solar Chen Clan.
At another area, the body of Qin Wentian that was hurtling downwards through the air, was caught hold of by a snowy white demonic beast. This beast was naturally none other than Little Rascal. Currently, it was in its battle form. It stowed Qin Wentian onto its back as it tried to run away.
But how could Jun Yu spare Qin Wentian?
Not long ago, that disdainful look in Qin Wentian's eyes, and the faking of his sword strike had deeply carved a scar of humiliation in Jun Yu's mind. Not only that, he was even tricked into wasting his priceless life-saving treasure.
And now that Qin Wentian was totally defenceless, did he really think that he could still escape?
Qin Wentian actually cultivated in such a terrifying technique, the Immortal Vanquishing Swordplay? In that case, this must merely be the tip of the iceberg, he should still have many other secrets on his body. Jun Yu wanted to know everything.
Right now, he stretched his hands out and made a grabbing motion in the air. Instantly, Little Rascal felt its body being seized. It tried to break free, but its struggle was useless. As a Heavenly Dipper Realm demonic beast, how could it break free from a Celestial Phenomenon Ascendant? A simple grab was sufficient to deal with it.
Astral light flashed again as the Seven Slaughters Puppet appeared standing in front of the unconcious Qin Wentian.
The hearts and minds of the seven users were linked as one. After they executed the freezing of space, they immediately executed the Stellar Transposition, rushing over to Qin Wentian, facing off against Jun Yu!
