Star Martial God Technique Chapter 290: Heavenly lightning of the gods and demons
A fight broke out between the 3 peak experts present.
The emperor easily fended off attacks from the combined might of two experts.
“You guys, this is just pitifully weak!”
The emperor did hand signs and a dark formation formed in the sky above them. Thunderous boom reverberated in the clouds.
“Let me show you the technique I learned from the Nine Dragons Monolith of Demons and Gods, the heavenly lightning formation of the gods and demons.”
Lightning pillars connected the sky and earth in an area of about a few kilometers in radius. Anything that the lightning pillars touched got reduced to cinders.
This is the imperial palace and due to his heavenly lightning formation of the gods and demons he wrecked his own palaces. Yet, he’s not worried about the losses he’s suffering, he continued channeling the formation.
The world got caged in this prison of frightening lightning.
With a swing of his hand, a gigantic lightning bolt descended upon Lin Hong.
He hurriedly gathered his nether energies to form a large shield to cover himself.
The lightning pillar struck his shield, shattering it into pieces, dispersing the nether energies he gathered. With blood coming out of his mouth, Lin Hong fell back.
Shang Guan Xuan furrowed her brows. Lin Hong is only a bit weaker than her. With his heavy injuries, it would be hard for Lin Hong to continue fighting. Just by herself, she’s afraid she doesn’t stand a chance against the emperor.
She fought with the emperor before and she lost one-sidedly. Her mortal wounds almost caused her demise, she got away safely after using a lot of her trump cards. If Ye XingHe didn’t heal her, she would not have recovered so soon. This fight can only end in their deaths at this rate.
Shang Guan Xuan landed between Ye XingHe and Xia Yu Ning. She grabbed both of them.
“But, Lin Hong…”
Ye XingHe turned around anxiously. He wanted to rescue Lin Hong as well.
“If we don’t leave now then it’s all over for us!”
Shang Guan Xuan said in a low tone.
The emperor laughed out loud and a soul-chilling pressure fell upon them.
“You think you can run? Shang Guan Xuan, if you escaped by yourself I might not have been able to keep you here but if you’re planning on bringing those two with you then you’re severely underestimating us. If you want to die with them so much, let me grant your wish!”
A gigantic bolt was summoned by the emperor with a wag of his finger.
This attack seemed like it would devour all three of them. The next instant, an invisible ripple dispelled the lightning bolt before it can land on them.
The emperor’s eyes flashed and he coldly stared at a certain direction. He growled.
“Since you’re here, show yourself, and let’s not waste time playing hide-and-seek, yeah?”
A figure landed on the roof of the palace some distance away. It’s an old man that is shabbily dressed.
“Wu Xiang, so you want to join the party too?”
The emperor nonchalantly addressed him.
“I spared you once before this, do not test my patience for my patience is limited!”
“I will be taking those two young’uns!”
Elder Wu Xiang pointed at Ye XingHe and Xia Yu Ning.
The emperor glanced at Ye XingHe.
“No, I want him. Moreover, you don’t have the right to negotiate with me. I give you two choices: Scram or die here, the choice is up to you!”
The emperor emitted more aura than before, this showed that he’s taking a more serious stance than before.
Ye XingHe landed beside Lin Hong and he asked him.
“Lin Hong, how are you doing?”
“I am okay!”
Lin Hong shook his head while grabbing his chest. He is looking at the emperor with a deeply frustrated look. He sacrificed so many things to increase his cultivation only to fall short when it came to a confrontation with the emperor.
Ye XingHe glanced in Elder Wu Xiang’s direction, he wondered if Wu Xiang would be able to handle the emperor.
This emperor’s power is too monstrous to reckon with.
He had a frightening amount of power 700 years ago, who knows what kind of level has the emperor achieved after all this time.
“What if I insist on taking him with me?”
Wu Xiang replied while his eyes brimmed with red luster. A storm of killing intent poured out from him.
He looked like he’s a gigantic savage beast.
Elder Wu Xiang stepped forward as his star power took the form of burning flames. It burned with astral brilliance that would scorch all who opposed him.
The emperor raised an eyebrow at him. The heavenly lightning formation of the demons and gods started concentrating power, forming webs of lightning in the sky, the power contained within would send anyone packing. He narrowed his eyes at the old man.
“Wu Xiang, is this really wise of you?”
“Bring the three of them away from here!”
Elder Wu Xiang sent a sound transmission to Shang Guan Xuan.
Shang Guan Xuan finally realized that it was Wu Xiang who followed them. She felt like someone trailed behind them but she couldn’t locate the stalker no matter how hard she tried, his appearance here answered her haunting doubt.
Shang Guan Xuan thought about it, judging by the terrifying power coming from the emperor, even if she teamed up with Elder Wu Xiang, they still wouldn’t be the emperor’s match.
That is just how powerful the emperor has become!
If they stayed here, everyone would die in the end.
Shang Guan Xuan grabbed Ye XingHe and Xia Yu Ning when she looked at Lin Hong.
Lin Hong nodded.
“I can leave by myself!”
He turned into a wisp of nether energy and he disappeared from view.
Shang Guan Xuan leaped away with Xia Yu Ning and Ye XingHe in her arms.
“Don’t think it will be easy to run away!”
The emperor snorted and he unleashed a palm strike.
His palm strike formed an energy wave that landed on Shang Guan Xuan’s back. Turning pale, blood spilled out of the corners of her mouth but she never stopped or flinched.
The emperor wanted to attack one more time but Elder Wu Xiang unleashed a bright red palm strike at the emperor. Not one to be careless, the emperor defended himself.
He dispersed the attack with his own attack.
Two figures, one red and the other white exchanged blows in the air, their speed was so frightening it’s hard to see clearly.
Shang Guan Xuan suffered damage and she’s carrying two people, it’s amazing that she can still run so fast. When Ye XingHe looked back, the red and white figures became more and more distant.
Ye XingHe prayed that Elder Wu Xiang would be alright. He’s deeply frustrated that he can’t even put up a fight in front of an apex practitioner like the emperor.
They kept moving and soon, the only thing they could see behind them is the stormy sky with lightning flickering now and then.
“Lady Shang Guan Xuan, are you doing alright?”
Ye XingHe can’t help asking Shang Guan Xuan about her condition. He saw her pale look and her ghastly white face suggested that she’s teetering on the edge right now.
