“Tong Xin…… bring sister home…… wait for my return —–“
“Tong Xin…… bring sister home…… wait for my return —–“
Three loud yell, exhausted all the strength he had just accumulated, making him almost unable to stand upright. His voice was hoarse and long, spreading out in the far distance, almost directly through the horizon. He was bidding his farewell to Tong Xin, and also giving her hope. Or else, after he died, she will certainly be back to her murderous self as the Woman Punished by the Heavens, moreover, her hatred would be more cruel than what she had been twenty years ago. So, he told her to “wait for his return”, making her wait…… and to forever wait for him……
When his voice dropped, the huge troops were already stationed twenty meters away from him, these soldiers’ eyes were firmly fixed on this man with blood all over his entire body, who was already unable to stand straight, their faces were full of all sorts of expressions. The young girl beside him didn’t sustain even the slightest bit of wound in her entire body, her head buried in his chest, refusing to look at them. They evidently couldn’t believe that, he was actually carrying this young girl, while he brought upon them the unbearable degree of fright, yet did not permit this young girl to sustain any bit of wound. Feng Ling was riding on the horseback, as he slowly approached, beside him, Yue HanDong followed with a complicated expression on his face. On Ye Wuchen’s face, they didn’t see the wrath and desperation that should be present, he was laughing, a kind of mocking laugh. This kind of laugh had caused them to be powerless, almost having no face or courage to make contact with his eyes. He had the right to sneer at them, this time having compelled to be like this, they don’t have the joy that was felt by a victor, the heaviness in their hearts were like being pressed down by a huge rock.
Stopping on the spot ten steps away from him, Feng Ling heaved a long sigh, not knowing if it was pity, or lamenting the God of War, the Three Elder God of Feng, and the numerous troops and horses who died tragically, or exclaiming that all of these had finally came to an end, or any other else. He gently said: “I, Feng Ling, in my whole life…… aside from my own father and Elder Feng who had just died in your hands, have never admired other people, today, regarding you…… during those days I’ve heard every fascinating stories about you, I am somewhat interested. Now that I finally knew that, the distance between you and I were too far. Among the people who had made me feel convinced, you are the greatest.”
“The Gale Nation imperial palace swarming with plenty of experts was still unable to detain you, the God of War was unable to kill you, but instead got killed by you, the ten thousand armies weren’t able to detain you, yet you escaped through a small gap in the blink of an eye, the Tian Feng City which was scattered with the city soldiers wasn’t able to trap you, allowing you to be able to break out of the city, five thousand cavalries guarding the western gate of the city weren’t able to capture you…… right now they were even in a complete wipeout…… I also want to know, in this entire world, who else will be able to kill you.”
Who else will be able to kill him…… for someone who could even kill the God of War, who else will be able to kill him!?
Ye Wuchen didn’t say anything, as if feeling disdained to have a conversation with him, the mocking look in his eyes was more and more reckless.
“If we were not enemies, I would use every fair means to become your friend. Now, what I can do for you would be to personally send you off.” He shifted his gaze, then faintly remarked: “Although your sister had abandoned me, but I would never abandon her, also never blame her. I would still treat her right, take care of her for the whole life. In the future when our Gale Nation wipes out your Tian Long Nation, I would try my best to…… protect your Ye family’s safety, just feel at ease when you go on.”
He took one last look at Ye Wuchen, and turned around, his right hand slowly raised up. Numerous arrows were now aimed at Ye Wuchen, when his hand dropped, ten thousand arrows will shoot out simultaneously.
“Feng Ling……” Ye Wuchen coldly laughed as he looked at his back, pausing at every word, with every word he negatively remarked: “Tell Feng Lie, tell all the members of the Feng family, if I, Ye Wuchen, will not die today…… in the future, I will certainly make your Feng family……”
“To be —- consigned —- to eternal —- damnation!!”
The intense coldness suddenly emerged in the atmosphere, it’s a kind of coldness that was created from within the deepest part of his heart, the coldness rushed forth from the bottom of the heart, flowing along the backbone, four limbs, and the blood flow in every corner of the body, causing their body to involuntarily shiver. Feng Ling’s body suddenly went rigid a bit, that low and gloomy voice, was like the angry snarl of the devil in the underworld, causing his soul to shiver consequently, even without the courage to turn around to face his gaze. His right hand slowly dropped down trembling……
“You are right…… Your Gale Nation, no one will ever be able to kill me…… no one will ever dare!!”
During the moment when Feng Ling’s arm dropped down, Ye Wuchen hugged Ning Xue tightly in his arms, turned over and stood up, then fell into the bottomless deep abyss behind him. During the moment he fell into the darkness, one by one figures emerged in his mind. When Yan ZhiMeng’s fairy and dream-like figure showed up, his heart turned sour and soft, using the spiritual power, he completely wiped off the spiritual contract between them that was established out of forceful means.
Originally, Ye Wuchen was able to easily get rid of this spiritual contract that the Magical Voice Tribe thought that it was forever unable to be removed. He didn’t like the idea of Yan ZhiMeng’s affection towards him to be established due to the spiritual contract, but he preferred her affection to be totally originated from her heart, but in order for him to know her location at any time, he retained it. But for the sake of saving her life, he finally completely wipe it off, because with the presence of the spiritual contract, if he dies, she will also die because of him.
Feng Ling, having heard the sound, ferociously turned around, which happened to be during the moment when they jumped off. He hurriedly jumped down from the horseback, bearing the pain on his chest to approach the edge of the Death Abyss, yet he could only see the pitch-black area. Their bodies had been engulfed by the borderless darkness.
Yue HanDong went over the edge of the cliff to support his body, then exclaimed: “I expect he would choose this method of death, a person who can’t be killed by the God of War, would never choose to die in our hands. If he was to die, he would choose to kill himself. The Death Abyss’ bottom can’t be seen, even if the real god fell into it he wouldn’t have the chance of survival. In other words, even if he has two lives, didn’t die below, he would never be able to come up…… Your Highness, let’s return back now.”
Feng Ling stood there for a very long time, then with a long sigh, he turned around and left. He killed too many people of the Gale Nation, yet in the end he didn’t die in their hands. Facing Ye Wuchen, Feng Ling didn’t feel the hatred, only great pity. And Yue HanDong and those soldiers with complicated expressions also felt the same way.
The crowd began to subside like the tide. Leaving this bottomless deep abyss that everybody feared. The Death Abyss went totally silent again, only the wind that sounded like the ghost weeping.
“Tong Xin…… bring sister home…… wait for my return —–“
Three loud shouts from a far distance were like a hammer heavily pounding on Tong Xin’s heart, these three loud shouts didn’t transmit to her ears, but directly spread through her heart, causing her to sit there expressionless, her eyes lost their focus. Her heart could feel that, this was his and Ning Xue’s last farewell to her, and his breath had turned weaker as if it didn’t exist anymore.
And Tong Xin’s breath, was already weak enough, even weaker than the breath released by small plant and flower. But she was still standing there with unbending attitude. Lu Tian became emotionally moved repeatedly, he couldn’t understand, how big was her potential powers, and what kind of power was still supporting her.
Suddenly, Tong Xin’s entire body violently trembled, her body was already weak enough on the verge of collapse. Because at this moment Ye Wuchen’s breath had completely disappeared…… disappeared without a trace.
Sorrow, pain, and resentment…… Tong Xin’s tears gushed out like a stream, this young girl who never cried, her tears had eventually fell down, and her hatred, as well as the murderous spirit, unboundedly expanded in a short span of time…… then expanded again……
Those pair of eyes, flashed out dark lights, firmly fixed onto the person in front of her.
……If it wasn’t for him, how could he die…… if it wasn’t for him…… how could he……
Her thoughts painfully repeated, desperation and resentment filled up every corner of her body, every cell. Finally, indistinctly, she felt her consciousness became more and more fuzzy, a string inside her heart suddenly snapped off.
That extremely weak body had stirred up the elements of the heaven and earth in an instant, the aura of death frantically transformed. Within this terrible atmosphere, Lu Tian couldn’t help but retreated a step back, his body was like falling into an ice cave, his heart was overwhelmed with shock. That aura of death was like a realistic sharp blade slashing through his face, the slash brought stabbing pain to his indestructible body.
From the beginning when he had fought hand in hand with Tong Xin with full strength, he had never felt such frightening energy and aura of death…… No, it didn’t reach even ten percent of such terrible atmosphere.
Within the confusing atmosphere, the wind went similarly chaotic, within the perimeter of several hundred meters the dusts were flying everywhere. Within the flying dusts, Tong Xin produced a very sharp yell as her heart was full of hatred, and she slowly lifted up the Heaven Punishment Blade in her hands.
Tong Xin in front of Lu Tian’s eyes had vanished, then reappeared behind him.
That was not shifting, but Tong Xin’s unimaginably fast speed, swept past beside him, Lu Tian still maintained his original posture, didn’t have any reaction, but, during the brief moment of silence, he didn’t turn his head around, even his expression and body movement remained unchanged, just like being frozen by time.
The Heaven Punishment Blade in her hands fell to the ground, Tong Xin’s thin and weak body fell into the middle of the dusts, didn’t produce any further sound, the tears on her face had moistened the ground surface.
“Is this…… Princess Black Butterfly’s…… legendary…… Black Butterfly Quick Murderous Attack……”
A burst of wind blew past, Lu Tian’s body was like a piled up wood blocks collapsed down piece by piece, turned into a ground full of blood and tiny pieces of dismembered body. That trembling sound of mumble coming out of his mouth, became the last voice he produced in his life.
He was a real god, moreover one of the eight most powerful generals in the World of God, his strength was beyond every person in the entire Heavenly Star Continent, he could even destroy an entire country all by himself. He had never expected that, his own final destination…… was actually in the Heavenly Star Continent.
During that moment, Tong Xin used the Heaven Punishment Blade to strike ninety-nine cuts, breaking his body into a thousand pieces. The speed during that moment, fully transformed the atmosphere of heaven and earth, alarming all supernatural beings.
Darkness, Abyss, eternal limit.
“Brother, hug me tight.”
“……Xue-er, are you scared?”
“I’ve told you before, I’m not scared, really, because brother is with me.”
Their bodies were dropping down, the wind beside their ears whistled, in the surrounding, was the boundless darkness and the warmth in the chest. He only hugged Nign Xue tightly, and more tightly……
What’s amazing was, this abyss had a spiritual power multiple times more abundant than the ground surface, permitting his deficient body to slowly recover. But, such little power of recovery wasn’t able to recover those extremely damaged internal organs, because no matter how hard he had struggled, the moment they touched the ground, will be the moment that they will meet their violent death.
After a very very long time, the cool wind still whistled beside their ears. Ye Wuchen opened his eyes, then looked down.
“Brother, are we going to die?”
Ye Wuchen got startled for a long time, then he laughed and said: “Did you know that, in many novels and movies, jumping off the cliff wouldn’t make you die, but on the contrary it will be a great way to escape. So we…… will not necessary die……”
“En.” Ning Xue gently responded, although she didn’t know what he had meant by novels and movies.
They continued to fall for a very long time, Ye Wuchen gently asked: “Xue-er…… if brother is no longer here, and you are all by yourself, what will you do?”
“I will be very sad, I will go and accompany brother.” Ning Xue answered, her weak voice sounded resolute.
Ye Wuchen looked downwards, then gently shook his head: “If brother is really not here anymore, you shouldn’t do any foolish things, but instead you must live to take my place, okay?”
Ning Xue: “……”
A light stream of air flowed from under their feet, Ye Wuchen knew that, the bottom of this Death Abyss, was already fast approaching below their feet. Based on the stream of air, below their feet, would be the solid ground, without luck —- it’s not water, or trees……
“I knew all along that, instead of abandoning you all alone, I’ll be better off accompanying you…… as we leave this world. But when I have the strength to save you, I discovered that I still couldn’t look on helplessly as you get hurt. Xue-er…… listen to me, don’t die…… live on to take my place, okay?”
Ye Wuchen was gently caressing her face, hugging her tightly, gently kissing her face and forehead, then he fling out his both hands, throwing her above himself.
“Brother—-” Ning Xue yelled out in panic, waving her both hand to grab him in the darkness. All of a sudden, a gentle wind spread from below her body, causing her dropping speed to gradually slow down, then slowed down again……
Ye Wuchen’s Wuchen power which he had just regained few moments ago was all being transformed into the most gentle element of wind, it held up Ning Xue’s falling body, his own body dropping faster due to the opposite reaction, farther and farther away from her, but the wind he released didn’t stop, well-distributed from slow to fast speed, squeezing every ounce of strength out of his body, maintaining the wind that blew upward.
…… Will it just end here…… such high altitude, such speed, the body must already split up in pieces……
His body had finally smashed heavily onto the bottom of the Death Abyss, before he could feel the pain, his consciousness had already completely dispersed in a split second.
Ning Xue slowly dropped down in the midst of the gentle wind, although she felt the pain, yet she wasn’t seriously injured. She grabbed Ye Wuchen’s body, producing a heart-tearing loud cry……
[Ye Wuchen：I will certainly return!]
[Big Grey Wolf：Get lost!That’s my script!] “Four hundred sixty-nine imperial bodyguards were lost, not to count the God…… God of War and the Three Elder God of Feng. Stationed in the West a complete wipeout of five thousand mounted soldiers and armored horses, nothing remained, the east and west city soldiers of eight thousand three hundred twenty-seven persons died in the battle…… Adding up to a total number of thirteen thousand seven hundred ninety-six men.” an officer reported the numbers, afterwhich he couldn’t help but wiped off the cold sweat on his forehead. This was the number of deaths, without considering the people who were seriously injured or burnt yet.
Thirteen thousand seven hundred ninety-six men…… this number had caused the originally quiet hall to be even more silent. Such casualties was already considered to be extremely disastrous in the battlefield…… But all of these, was actually caused by one single man…… one man! Moreover he had also killed the God of War and the Three Elder God of Feng, after sustaining a serious injury. Or else, it will not be just this number, Ye Wuchen might certainly escape safely.
But even if they were to turn around this number, it simply couldn’t compare to the death of the God of War. Until now, they were still doubting whether he had really died…… or maybe, all of these were just a ridiculously terrible nightmare.
They preferred to believe that, this was just a dream.
Inside the hall, Feng Lie and Feng Ling were present, together with more than ten important minister of the imperial court. Today the chaotic incident inside the palace and the large scale deployment of troops, simply made this incident inconcealable.
Feng Lie seemed to have already calmed down this time, he took a few glimpses at those terrified faces of the officials, then asked: “Regarding this matter, do you have anything else to say?”
“Your Majesty, forgive me for being frank, but this matter has been handled quite inappropriately. Firstly, rumor has it that Ye Wuchen was wearing the God of Sword’s ring, he was the only descendant of the God of Sword, but now he was compelled to die by our Gale Nation’s army, how could his teacher be willing to accept it, if the God of Sword showed up, then disasters will automatically happen…… without the God of War, we will not be able to resist; Secondly, deploying several tens of thousands of military forces just because of one person from the Tian Long Nation, also lost more than ten thousands because of one person, if this incident transmitted outwards…… it will truly affect our nation’s reputation, causing people to denounce us; Thirdly……”
“Superior Wen you’ve made a mistake!” the one who was speaking is Yue HanDong who was guarding the eastern city gate, interrupting him as he said: “Are you afraid now Superior Wen, do you really we cannot behead this person with the involvement of great number of people? Then are you aware that Ye Wuchen had intruded in the imperial palace beforehand, without explanation he had injured His Majesty the Crown Prince, taken His Majesty as the hostage, then finally in front of His Majesty, the crown prince, and the God of War, he killed the princess…… His every offense, was sufficient enough to let die a lingering death for ten or hundred times, do we have any reason not to kill him?”
Superior Wen:” This…… happened to be……”
“There’s nothing to worry about. Before it was due to the apprehension for the God of Sword, His Majesty and the crown prince repeatedly exercised forbearance, for many times they pledged to let him go, but he was still that way, he…… simply didn’t care about our Gale Nation, if we didn’t him, it will truly affect our Gale Nation’s reputation. That time the God of War had personally stood out and fight, didn’t actually care about the consequence, but unfortunately, as no one had expected…… the God of War was unexpectedly killed in his hands, the Three Elder God of Feng subsequently died in his hands…… And this kind of person, once we let him escape, how could we sleep peacefully because of that? To deploy magnificent army of thousand men and horses, to take his life by all means, how inappropriate was that?”
Superior Wen: “…… Oh, General Yue you were right, it must be because I have too much restraining fear towards the God of Sword. During those years if it wasn’t because of the God of Sword, our nation must not have retreated in defeat.”
“Although the God of Sword is an outstanding abled person yet he wasn’t someone who would be unreasonable, all of them were because of Ye Wuchen’s huge mistake beforehand, the God of Sword will not carry out vendetta against without any reason. I believe, he will not make his move.”
“I hope so.”
Only Feng Lie and Feng Ling knew, that Feng Ru didn’t die without any reason. Her death, the God of War’s death…… The cause for all of these, was because she had brought home that white haired young girl, then slapped her on the face. She was like a piece of bomb, permitting all of these to break out when they were completely caught off guard.
“Your Majesty, the reason why we have temporarily postponed the war was because of the arranged marriage between the daughter of Ye family and His Highness the Crown Prince, but now…… Should we dispatch our own armies once more, and directly target against Tian Long.” A military leader voiced out.
Feng Lie didn’t speak, Feng Ling waved his hand and said: “For the time being we must not. The casualties were disastrous as we could barely enough to accept it, but with Elder Feng and the Three Elder God of Feng gone, those we hated my father will certainly flock in soon, my father’s safety is our primary concern right now. So at the present we must concentrate on my father’s safety measures.”
Upon hearing these words, Feng Lie nodded his head. Since ancient times, the rulers of the most powerful nations were those who experienced more incidents of assassination. When the war against Tian Long Nation set out, the first thing that the Tian Long would think about was to do their utmost to assassinate the ruler of the Gale Nation. To find another person like the God of War among the Gale Nation was already impossible, even if they really found one, he might certainly not be similar like Feng ChaoYang who had willingly devoted all his life to protect the Feng family. Not to mention the God of War, even those experts like the Three Elder Gods of Feng, will be similarly this way.
“So, we must maintain the peace treaty through marriage, for the meantime we just mutually steady our troops.” said Feng Ling, his expression was somehow unnatural.
“Peace treaty through marriage? The Ye family will soon learn about the incident today, they will certainly be more hateful towards our nation, how could they agree to marry off their daughter once again. Now the daughter of Ye which we have never seen, she must have been escorted back to her homeland.” said Yue HanDong with knitted brows. He could see that, for Feng Ling to speak like this, the primary reason would be because he was still madly in love with Ye ShuiYao.
“Yes, the Ye family might never agree again, but with the refuse of Ye family it doesn’t mean that the emperor of Tian Long Long Yin will not agree. The one who had longed for this peace treaty wasn’t us, but Long Yin. Ye family’s refusal will not be a problem, Long Yin will think of the way to let them agree for our sake. Moreover……” With a long sigh he said: “I am ashamed, this matter was being facilitated with the assistance of Elder Feng, Feng Ling didn’t want to give up at this point, this is to show respect for him.”
The crowd went completely silent.
The God of War’s death, the chaos in the imperial palace, the strength of the entire Feng family was greatly affected, currently it was indeed not a good time to start a war.
When the moon has reached its culmination, Tong Xin had eventually waken up.
All of them were not part of the dream, her body ached and limp, his breath still cannot be detected, even the slightest bit.
She wiped off the dust stains on her face, her tears fell down once again. Beside her, was a pile of chopped body parts, when she turned her gaze around, her eye expression was full of hatred. She stretched out her hands, a beam of dark light dashed out, blowing them apart, perished.
She turned her head again, looking at the West, that place, was where his breath had faded away. She was bewildered, not knowing what path she should take without him, without someone to rely on and the place to return to.
Would she kill all the people nearby…… or the entire city to avenge him?
Striding her footsteps ahead, the last voice that Ye Wuchen had transmitted to her resounded again beside her ears.
He wanted me, to send her home.
She found her purpose, her eyes lighted up with colors once again. She soared high above, following the breath, flying towards Ye ShuiYao’s direction.
Ye ShuiYao was still quietly sitting there. Aside from fear, she couldn’t feel anything else. Ye Wuchen was already gone for a very very long time, yet he still hadn’t returned. She really never experienced such fear before, she forced herself not to think of anything worse that might have happened to him, her heart beated faster and faster.
“Tong Xin…… bring sister home…… wait for my return —–“
