Star Martial God Technique Chapter 315: Farewell
Shang Guan Xuan looked at Ye XingHe and she said.
“This is the core formation supporting the entire first floor of the Tower. The entire star power gathered in the Tower is channeled through here. You can cultivate peacefully for two or three months here.”
“What about you two?”
Ye XingHe looked at the both of them. He more or less knew what they were going to do but he asked anyway.
“XingHe, with you here, the emperor will never be able to complete his plan. As for your parents, clan members, and Xia Yu Ning’s father, just leave them to us. We will rescue them safe and sound and deliver them to you.”
Lin Hong said with a formal tone.
Shang Guan Xuan and Lin Hong knew they wouldn’t be able to persuade him from going to the fifth floor. They lied about talking with the Guardian. They wanted to seal Ye XingHe here while they proceeded to said floor themselves.
“You’re too weak.”
Shang Guan Xuan calmly said.
“Even if you go, you won’t be able to stop the emperor from completing his objectives!”
Shang Guan Xuan said with absolute confidence.
She already made preparations for stopping Ye XingHe when he planned to confront the emperor.
Even so, his parents and clan elders are all in the hands of the emperor. How can he stay here like this while Lin Hong and Shang Guan Xuan went ahead of him to save them? He shouldn’t make his comrades brave danger for him.
“The emperor is very strong, both of you won’t come back alive if you go like this!”
Ye XingHe growled at them.
“That might be true but at least we can still work together to put up a fight. On the other hand, it’s almost confirmed that you will die if you go.”
Shang Guan Xuan said with composure on her face. Her heart, meanwhile, wavered when she said this.
If they parted here, it’s highly likely they won’t see each other again.
Her heart experienced a great storm. She’s actually a very selfish person who didn’t cry or feel remorse over the deaths of her friends who fell due to the Demon King Ling Tian’s pursuit.
She always believed that death is only an end to the suffering of having lived. She thought nothing more of death than just a part of the natural order. Why is she hesitating in front of the thought of parting with this mortal in front of her?
When she thought of nothing of death, she lived. Now, when she wanted to live, she’s forced by fate and the heavens to go fight a fight she knows she will lose.
The fates surely knew how to play cruel pranks on people.
“Shang Guan Xuan, you let me out this instant!”
Ye XingHe smashed the barrier with his Star power. He continued bashing the barrier but he can’t break his way through no matter what.
“XingHe, just obediently stay here as Lady Shang Guan said.”
Lin Hong sighed.
“We unanimously decided on this, there is little you can do that will change our minds.”
Lin Hong also felt like tearing up when he thought about his farewell.
“Brother, it has been an honor!”
He said with the most radiant smile Ye XingHe has ever seen on his face.
Lin Hong said this farewell knowing full well there’s no coming back.
“Lin Hong. You best open up this barrier right now. We are sworn brothers, death is something we shall confront together!”
Ye XingHe roared at him.
Can he really do nothing as both Shang Guan Xuan and Lin Hong charge into their deaths? This is a torture worse than death for him!
But, knowing both of them, they wouldn’t budge on something after making up their minds.
Shang Guan Xuan looked at Ye XingHe with peaceful eyes. She imprinted his every expression into her mind. He’s the only one who managed to tether her to the present. The only one she’s reluctant to leave behind.
Their memories together flew past her mind.
Shang Guan Xuan silently said in her heart as she turned around.
“Lin Hong, let’s go.”
Ye XingHe continued hammering the barrier with his fists. A strong urge to cry welled up within him.
“Come back alive, you hear me?!”
Ye XingHe said while tears streamed down his cheeks.
Shang Guan Xuan allayed as she walked further away.
“You too, Lin Hong, you better come back in one piece, you hear me?”
Ye XingHe’s heart is on the verge of tearing itself into pieces.
Lin Hong laughed out loud.
“Relax, we promised to bring your parents and elders back so that’s what we will do. Adieu, brother!”
Lin Hong turned around and he chased after Shang Guan Xuan.
He was not emotionally strong enough to hold back his tears.
He’s very sorry for dragging Shang Guan Xuan and Lin Hong back. The frustration built up within him.
Damn this barrier!
Ye XingHe smashed the barrier as Lin Hong and Shang Guan Xuan walked further and further away.
An ancient voice entered her ears.
“I thought you said human emotions are intrinsically worthless. What’s this about you putting your life on the line for a brat?”
The entity sounded like he’s teasing her.
“That’s rich coming from you. You threw away yours for Yulan Palace Master.”
“Well, that’s what humans like me do. I thought you always prided yourself for being able to think and act like a demon?”
Is the line of distinction between a human and a demon so thin? Shang Guan Xuan mused to herself.
This is a question she will never answer in this lifetime. The two figures leaped into the air and they disappeared into the darkness.
Even if he’s raging, even if he used his Fading Star Explosion battle technique, he didn’t make a dent in the barrier. Tormented by anger, grief, and pain, he calmed his heart after a brief while.
I can’t give up now. There’s no way I am going to let them die just like this!
Think, what can I do?
Ye XingHe looked at the star pillars around him.
These pillars are the keys!
He examined every inscriptions and totem here. then, he sat down with crossed legs as the formation appeared in a 3D construct within his mind.
The totems glowed brightly within his mind. They emitted brilliant flashes while his mind fell into a state of understanding.
Spiritual lights flashed like lightning in his mind.
A ginormous force from every corner of the Tower gathered here.
Boom boom boom
The energy surged into his body. He felt like he would explode at any time, the input was greater than anything he can take!
The ancient stele within his mind churned as it soaked up the excess energy.
The star pillar formation started shaking violently like there’s a localized earthquake or something.
