Chapter 149: One Palm
Translator: Atlas Studios Editor: Atlas Studios
The sharp edge condensed from countless grains of sand swept across the sky and shot towards Liu Qingbai and the others. Wherever it passed, sharp sonic booms sounded. Even space was slightly distorted, as if it would shatter at any moment.
“Uh… I can’t move.”
Liu Qingbai and the others all had pale faces. They were unable to break free from the Sand Emperor’s domain and could only watch as the sharp light shot over.
Not only could this sharp light kill them, but it could even destroy the Desolate City behind them!
The might of a Saint Stage attack was as deep as an abyss!
Just as the sharp light was about to pass through the eleven Legendary Stage experts and land in Desolate City, a strange scene suddenly appeared.
Just like the blood-red fog before, the originally unstoppable sharp light suddenly froze in place, as if it was blocked by an invisible wall and could not advance an inch further..
At this moment, the sharp light was less than ten meters away from hitting Liu Qingbai and the others.
The violent wind blew all their hair back and made their clothes flutter in the wind. At the moment, they were unable to fully open their eyes.
Fortunately, they were still alive.
After a while, Patriarch Mo gulped and said bitterly, “What… what’s going on?”
After a moment of silence, everyone looked at Liu Qingbai. After all, this was Desolate City. If there was anything strange happening, Liu Qingbai should be the one with an explanation.
Moreover, this scene was too similar to the scene of the Blood Barrier Formation just now, so the first person they thought of was Liu Qingbai.
Facing everyone’s puzzled gazes, Liu Qingbai also revealed a dumbfounded look, as if to say that he was equally as confused.
From the moment the Blood Sacrifice Formation was isolated outside the Desolate City, he had been confused. However, because he was facing a powerful enemy then, he did not have the time to think too much about it.
Now that the same situation had occurred, Liu Qingbai was even more at a loss than the others. If he could resolve the means of a Saint Stage expert, would he still be holed up here as the City Lord of Desolate City?
He would have long ruled over all the nearby factions!
“As expected of City Lord Liu, who is proficient in all kinds of runes. You must have set up many runes in the surroundings.”
The Ning Clan Grand Elder sighed.
“Yeah, but why can’t we see these runes?”
The Li Clan Patriarch chimed in.
“Tch, if we were able to see the runes, would it still be able to stop the Sand Emperor’s attack?”
Liu Qingbai :”…”
Can you all stop offering your own explanations!?
I don’t want to be targeted by the Sand Emperor!
In the distance, the Sand Emperor, who was hidden under the golden armor, frowned and said coldly, “Who’s doing this? Come out!”
He naturally did not think that Liu Qingbai was the one who had blocked his attack. The difference between the two could be said to be like the difference between heaven and earth. Even if Liu Qingbai had grasped the most powerful rune of the Spirit Central World, he would still be no different from an ant in his eyes, someone who could be killed with a casual strike.
Hearing this, the experts of the five great clans finally realized that there was someone else!
No wonder they couldn’t see runes.
Right at this moment, a handsome youth in snow-white clothes suddenly flew out from Desolate City.
The young man held a wine pot in his hand, and a palm-sized loli sat on his shoulder. He lightly landed on the Sand Emperor’s sharp light and stomped his foot. Suddenly, it started exploding inch by inch, as if it had never existed.
After doing this, the youth took a sip of wine and said indifferently, “You’re Azir?”
“Azir? What Azir?”
Although the Sand Emperor didn’t sense any spirit energy fluctuations from Qin Jue’s body, based on what Qin Jue just did, he could still tell that this was the man responsible for stopping his attack.
Liu Qingbai was rather stunned when she saw Qin Jue.
“City Lord Liu knows this person?”
Patriarch Ning couldn’t help but ask.
After hesitating for a few breaths, Liu Qingbai said hesitantly, “I think he’s an acquaintance of your son.”
Patriarch Ning: “???”
“If I remember correctly, Little Jie brought him here.”
The patriarch of the Ning Clan was stunned for a moment before recalling his third son, who had average talent but liked to read.
Because his cultivation was low, the patriarch of the Ning Clan had never paid him much attention. How could that son be an acquaintance of this super expert who could block the attack of the Sand Emperor?
“It’s quite simple, actually. The heavens must have sent another godly person to save us.”
Patriarch Yue said excitedly.
This scene was extremely similar to what happened two hundred years ago. Back then, when they were in a desperate situation, a super expert suddenly stood out and turned the situation around.
However, the super expert who saved them more than two hundred years ago was a middle-aged man, and now, it was a youth.
At the same time, Ning Jie was also shocked. He could hardly believe his eyes.
“Uncle Kun, am I hallucinating? I think I just saw Brother Qin.”
Ning Jie rubbed his eyes and said in disbelief.
“You’re not wrong. That’s indeed Qin Jue.”
Because Qin Jue’s temperament was too extraordinary, Ning Kun clearly remembered this name.
“How could this be? Brother Qin could actually neutralize the attack of the Sand Emperor. Could he be a Saint Stage expert?”
Ning Jie found it ridiculous.
No matter how one looked at it, Qin Jue didn’t look like an old monster. He was even younger than him. So how could he be a Saint Stage expert?
Suddenly, Ning Jie seemed to remember something as his mouth gaped open. “Could it be that the expert who saved us yesterday… was that Brother Qin?”
Yesterday, they had encountered the black vortex storm and had expected to suffer heavy losses. Unexpectedly, the black vortex storm was suddenly scattered by a powerful spirit energy.
At that time, they all thought that a passing expert had saved them. Now it seemed that the expert was very likely Qin Jue!
If that was the case, it would make sense.
“I think so.”
Ning Kun nodded with a complicated expression.
If not for the fact that the truth was right in front of them, they would not have believed it.
“Since you’re not Azir, you can die.”
Pursing his lips, Qin Jue slapped down. He had no interest in talking nonsense with an idiot.
“Heh, stupid humans…”
The Sand Emperor sneered and was about to say something when he suddenly realized that something was wrong and suddenly raised his head.
A golden palm that blotted out the sky had appeared at some point in time and was now falling towards the Sand Emperor, unstoppable!
The Sand Emperor shouted angrily and took out his spear. He brought up the sand within a thousand kilometers and turned into a sharp blade that faced the golden palm.
Finally, the golden palm collided with the sand blade, creating an intense tremor. Waves of energy spread out like waves, sweeping through the world.
In the next moment, the golden palm crushed the sand blade as if it was a blade of grass and smashed heavily onto the Sand Emperor!
Not only that, but the golden palm covered an extremely wide area. Whether it was the Sand Race’s First Elder or the colossal sand sculpture, they were all slapped into the ground by this palm!
The ground shook, and countless cracks spread out, forming a huge pit. Now that the Sand Emperor’s Domain had been broken, Liu Qingbai and the others hurriedly retreated, afraid of being affected.
When the sand and dust dissipated, a handprint that was thousands of meters in diameter appeared on the ground. It was bottomless, and the entire world returned to calm.
