Divine Emperor of Death - Chapter 2018: Guardian Of The Emperor Sword Sect
Chapter 2018: Guardian Of The Emperor Sword Sect
The sphere of emotions in the Emperor Sword Sect that was pessimistic abruptly amalgamated into one of terror. Today, someone who could control the world in the future had paid them a visit, and that sword-shattering information quickly spread like wildfire.
However, the Shard Family lackeys blocked their path, not letting them leave. While an internal war was looking as though it was about to break out, the main characters were in front of the gates, appearing to be in a standoff.
“Deal? What kind of deal?”
Davis chuckled as an amused expression appeared on his face.
On the other side, Ancestor Shard, whose name was Nereus Shard, possessed a wry expression on his face, although he was suppressing his rage in his heart. He wanted to tear this person into pieces but kept his wry smile like a sly old fox.
“Of course. In exchange for letting the grudge from so many years ago go, we are willing to pay yearly tribute worth ten Peak-Level Spirit Stone Vein Cores.”
Davis raised his brows.
“Indeed. Ten Peak-Level Spirit Stone Vein Cores.” Nereus Shard nodded, causing Davis to lower his head as though he was tempted.
But inwardly, he was laughing. Ten Peak-Level Spirit Stone Vein Cores? It was not too high and not too low to grab his attention and make him momentarily stay his hand.
However, if they give that kind of amount each year, they’ll quickly go bankrupt within a century. If he inquired about this, their next excuse would be that the Calamity Light would bring major changes to the world, increasing the overall resources and whatnot.
At this point, he was sick of playing such games.
“Let me guess. You wanted to capture Ivy Aries to force me into forgetting about avenging Old Man Garvin? Is that why you were desperate to capture her but accidentally forced her into dire straits instead?”
Nereus Shard’s expression stiffened before he nodded again.
“It’s true. If your eminence didn’t force us, there’s no reason for us to capture her.”
Davis couldn’t help but laugh at Nereus Shard’s ludicrous statement. As if they didn’t have ideas of conquering the Jade Lotus Valley before. To that end, he believed that Nereus Shard even fooled Ancestor Ambercrown of the Jade Lotus Valley, charming her and using her.
Although he was interested in knowing the true story of the demise of the true powerhouses of the Emperor Sword Sect, right now, he was in the mood to root out these vermins.
“I’m hoping that you can show some skill. Let me see what allowed you to plot against the true powerhouses of the Emperor Sword Sect, toppling them in the end.”
Davis rose as his soul force overflowed, turning into grayish-black energy, causing Nereus Shard and the others to shudder at the mere sight of it. Their senses hurriedly pulled away from it, not wanting to be corrupted as there were the innate howls of cessation in them.
“Emperor of Death!” Nereus Shard possessed a glowing sword in his hand, “We, the true Emperor Sword Sect, are not easily bullied!”
“Bullied? You’re going to perish, idiot!”
Davis sneered as he waved his hand. Death energy permeated towards them, intending to engulf them. However, resplendent light glowed in Nereus Shard’s hand, wielding the sword with incomparable sharpness. However, when he swung, the hundreds of deadly swords behind him unleashed a lacerating intent and rushed towards the wave of death.
Spatial cracks appeared in the space surrounding them when the fog of death and the killing formation clashed! Hundreds of swords cut through the fog of death. However, within piercing through a meter, they came to a stop, becoming blunt as they ran out of energy.
Looking at this phenomenon, Nereus Shard’s expression became unsightly before he used more energy. Instantly, the swords gained more airspace while lacerating the death energy. However, the fog of death was relentless and unending, causing sweat to appear on Nereus Shard’s forehead.
With one hand unleashing a fog of death, Davis’s other hand raised into a gun as he extended his index finger.
A ray of death energy burst out, shooting towards the fog of death and the killing formation. It was unknown what had happened. However, Davis continued unleashing his technique two more times.
The death wave was merely a smokescreen. The Death Ray was the real killer, silently reaping lives.
Davis felt a peculiar sense of joy as he shot them dead one by one. With Fallen Heaven’s karmic tendril activated, he could see countless threads passing through the black fog of death he generated, but to him who possessed a powerful perception, noticing where the karmic threads connected was an easy matter.
He targeted where the karmic thread led and shot a Death Ray, silently reaping a life again.
By the time Nereus Shard noticed, he had already lost five Grand Elders amongst the eight, causing his scalp to turn numb!
How was the Emperor of Death able to attack through the hundreds of swords powerful enough to cut him to pieces easily!? Even the Mandate Emperor wouldn’t survive a single attack without his Legacy Artifact!
Despite the many powerhouses of the Emperor Sword Sect dying on that fateful day, the Shard Family continued nurturing, and there came many Grand Elders who reached High-Level Law Rune Stage in these few millenniums. These Grand Elders only recently broke through to the Peak-Level Law Rune Stage in the light of the calamity after having spent so many resources on them, and now, they were dropping dead like flies!
A ray of grayish-black beam penetrated the sixth Grand Elder’s soul, causing him to die on the spot!
The Sect Leader of the Emperor Sword Sect saw this phenomenon and shuddered heavily. Looking through the deathly fog, it made him wonder if he could be next, an extreme sense of danger swelling within him. Glancing at his Ancestor, he thought of escaping. However…
“No! This can’t be happening! Guardian of the Emperor Sword Sect! You can’t let our sect vanish in these calamitous times!”
Nereus Shard spat a mouthful of blood outside and used that energy to form a technique. The technique began to glow with a peculiar light before a piercing sound strangely echoed.
Hearing this sound, Davis narrowed his eyes, very well knowing what was coming.
The deathly fog was pierced in an instant, heading towards Davis. A rippling grayish-black sword appeared in Davis’s hand, which he directly used to hack the rusted sword in front of him.
Space collapsed. The surrounding death energy was absorbed into space, and even the killing formation of swords was being pulled in. However, the swords retreated, pulled back by Nereus Shard, who also retreated to a safe distance.
Looking at the Soaring Emperor Sword, his expression was rippling with joy!
Davis also retreated in the face of spatial fissures. However, the Soaring Emperor Sword kept following him without any fear for its life.
Davis struck the Soaring Emperor Sword again. The sword in his hand was the initial form of the Heaven Cleaving Abyss. It was concentrated into a thin sword, capable of unleashing terrifying death energy in the direction it was swung, but at this moment, he used it as a sword to defend against the Soaring Emperor Sword’s attacks.
‘It stacked its power upon the formation…’
Davis’s eyes were narrowed. He didn’t dare lower his concentration because the Soaring Emperor Sword’s prowess at this moment was three levels higher than Peak-Level Ninth Stage upon stacking its power with the formation.
This was the true guardian that allowed the Emperor Sword Sect to strike fear into many hearts, even the wicked path. If enemies came, they would be sliced to pieces, and even the Blood Dust Emperor of yonder who left a phenomenon in the Blood Pledge Villa would have to think twice before invading the Emperor Sword Sect.
“You got miserably suppressed by your own people, and yet, you’re willing to save them?”
Davis continued exchanging sword strikes as space kept splitting apart. He wasn’t taking any damage, but their clashes were utterly destroying the Emperor Sword Sect. Moreover, the Soaring Emperor Sword was forcing him into a direction where there were the least amount of people.
However, there was no answer from the Soaring Emperor Sword.
“But I wonder how long you can use your core energy?”
Davis sneered.. The killing formation provided the energy to the Soaring Emperor Sword, but since it was uncontrolled, it was bound to be using its own core energy, which is very little compared to a cultivator of an equal level.
