Star Martial God Technique Chapter 288: The emperor
Ye XingHe’s heart is filled with puzzlement.
How did Shang Guan Xuan know that he can feel the Nine Dragons Monolith of Demons and Gods?
What else is she not telling him?
Ye XingHe can vaguely feel the existence of the item. He’s not too sure about its precise location but it should be dozens of meter below the ground, hidden away in the imperial treasure vault.
This item appeared to be very important as the imperial family hid it away so meticulously.
Ye XingHe opened his eyes and he told Shang Guan Xuan.
“I felt the item, it’s hidden inside the imperial palace’s vault, it should be dozens of meters below the ground.”
“Okay, then we are going down!”
Shang Guan Xuan nodded and she ripped open a big hole in the roof. They jumped down the hole together.
When Ye XingHe and his retinue broke into the treasury, somewhere deep in the imperial palace, a person in violet gold robes sat on the ground with crossed legs. Suddenly, he opened his eyes.
Violet gold, that’s the color of the imperial family.
There’a five-clawed dragon emblazoned on his robes. He looked like a very majestic person. Although he is only sitting in a meditative stance, it felt like there are countless miniature stars orbiting him. His immense power subjugated the energy of heaven and earth in a 100-meters radius around him.
In front of him, there are six individuals who are kneeling towards him. They are all at least in the ninth Heavenly Realm. Two of them even had powers above the ninth Heavenly Realm.
These people are only his bodyguards.
“I wrecked my sabatons searching far and wide for nothing only for her to serve herself up like this. Did Shang Guan Xuan really think it would be this easy to find the Nine Dragons Monolith of Demons and Gods? I only placed it as bait for her to come and discover it for herself. She basically threw herself into this trap, she even brought the people I am looking for!”
He laughed at how things played out according to his design.
“The emperor’s wile knows no bounds!”
His bodyguards started pouring praises upon him.
This person is the heavenly-ordained emperor of the Zhou empire. He’s Emperor Tian Yuan, the holder of the highest authority in the whole empire.
When he stepped forward, an invisible aura pushed everything in his path away like heavy mountains and parting seas. His bodyguards can’t even stand properly in his presence, not even the two experts who had powers greater than the ninth Heavenly Realm.
His cultivation is at the peak of all peaks.
“You people shall accompany me as we meet up with our old acquaintance, Shang Guan Xuan!”
The emperor is stepping on air but he looked very stable doing so, violet gold ripples replaced the sound of footsteps, every step he took, he emitted violet gold ripples.
The 4 ninth Heavenly Realm individuals had to cover their ears due to his terrifying power. Their eardrums felt like it would rupture at any moment.
In just the blink of an eye, the emperor is already more than a hundred meters away from them. They didn’t even notice when he left them behind.
Fwish fwish fwish
His bodyguards tried hard to catch up to him.
Inside the vault, Shang Guan Xuan busily searched all over the place to locate the switch that will open up the pathway to the underground chamber. This place was obviously designed to delay anyone from finding the entrance. Even someone of her powers can’t locate the switch no matter how hard she scanned the place.
Shang Guan Xuan and Ye XingHe were searching when Xia Yu Ning accidentally bumped into a bronze cauldron near her. With a rumble, the floor some distance away gave away to form a passage.
“There’s a hidden path here!”
“The Nine Dragons Monolith of Demons and Gods should be inside!”
Ye XingHe turned towards Shang Guan Xuan.
Shang Guan Xuan nodded and just when she wanted to investigate inside, she suddenly sensed something and her expression drastically changed.
“We leave now!”
“We are giving up on the Nine Dragons Monolith of Demons and Gods?”
Ye XingHe felt bewildered by this sudden change of plans.
Shang Guan Xuan grabbed Ye XingHe and Xia Yu Ning as they flew far away.
She’s here for Nine Dragons Monolith of Demons and Gods but she wanted to leave the moment they found the secret route?
While he is thinking about the matter, they already made significant progress deeper into the imperial palace.
Out of nowhere, a giant wave of energy struck them like a tsunami.
Ye XingHe detected the energy too late and before he can do anything, they were engulfed by it.
Ye XingHe and Xia Yu Ning got dealt a heavy blow. They spewed blood while being sent flying into the distance, they were crashing hard from 6 meters in the air.
Shang Guan Xuan also got sent retreating backward with a pale look. It took her a lot of energy to steady herself.
Shang Guan Xuan looked at Ye XingHe and Xia Yu Ning with a worried look. She hoped that they are okay. Having blocked most of the damage, she’s worried that a tiny portion of that power would still be enough to mortally wound them.
With a grave expression, she looked towards a certain direction. Appearing out of thin air, a person slowly walked over with his hands behind his back.
“Your survival is already questionable yet you still waste energy worrying about two mortals!”
The emperor said with his aura threatening to obliterate all around him.
“Ling Tian, you lured us here!”
Shang Guan Xuan said with a cold glint in her eyes.
The emperor heartily laughed.
“Isn’t it a bit too late to realize it’s a trap? Think about it, why would I let you get your hands on the Nine Dragons Monolith of Demons and Gods so easily? I was racking my brains over how to find the Extreme Yang and Extreme Ying required to activate the Nine Dragons Monolith of Demons and Gods, the heavens blessed me with the luck of obtaining the Extreme Ying so easily and it even gifted me with the Extreme Yang through your actions. With the two primers here, heaven is truly looking over me!”
Shang Guan Xuan realized a bit too late that they had fallen into a trap.
If Ye XingHe fell into his hands, the consequences would be dire.
“Guards, seize both of them!”
The emperor glanced over Ye XingHe and Xia Yu Ning.
The emperor is too powerful. He critically injured Ye XingHe and Xia Yu Ning with his initial attack. Their wounds severely impacted their fighting abilities. Against 6 formidable foes, they stood no chance in resisting.
Shang Guan Xuan got anxious, she tried to make a move to save Ye XingHe and Xia Yu Ning.
“I advise against doing anything. Our fight would create too much destruction, a lot of lives would be lost in the process. Moreover, you’re currently facing me!”
The emperor grinned.
Energy gathered around Shang Guan Xuan. Although he didn’t attack, he already set a lot of traps around Shang Guan Xuan.
The six bodyguards descended near Ye XingHe and Xia Yu Ning. They reached out to grab both of them.
