Chapter 150: Gone For Good This Time
Translator: Atlas Studios Editor: Atlas Studios
In the Outer Realm Desert, the sun hung on the horizon, and the air seemed very dry.
At this moment, Desolate City was absolutely silent.
This was especially true for the experts of the five great clans and Liu Qingbai. They were no longer shocked but were completely stunned!
It wasn’t that they hadn’t seen Saint Stage experts fight each other before…
More than two hundred years ago, that mysterious expert suddenly descended and began a shocking battle with the Sand Emperor. The battle swept through the entire Outer Realm Desert, causing the sky to darken and the sun and moon to dim. Many high-level cultivators had witnessed the fight with their own eyes.
The reason why Liu Qingbai was able to step into the Legendary Stage was also because he had comprehended his “Martial Dao” from that battle. He then entered seclusion for several years and broke through in one go, successfully advancing to the Legendary Stage.
However… that battle lasted for three days and three nights.. But this battle…
Instantly slapped to death?
Are you kidding me?
Everyone looked at each other with disbelief.
Patriarch Mo punched himself and grimaced in pain. “Hiss, I can’t believe I’m not dreaming.”
Indeed, it wasn’t a dream.
The question was, how did he do it?
His opponent was a genuine Saint Stage expert!
Moreover, the current Sand Emperor had clearly gotten stronger after being sealed for two hundred years. In addition, this was the Outer Realm Desert, so the Sand Emperor’s combat strength would have increased by at least thirty percent. Could it be that Qin Jue was a Grand Saint Stage expert?
Before everyone could figure it out, a sand pillar suddenly rose from the bottomless palm print and shot into the sky, scattering like a fountain.
And in the sand pillar stood a figure. It was the Sand Emperor!
He wasn’t dead!
However, the Sand Emperor looked rather miserable at this moment. The golden armor was cracked with dense lines that peeled off from its body. His spear had also broken into two and lost its luster.
Clearly, even if he wasn’t dead, the damage this palm dealt to him was absolutely significant.
But the strange thing was that not only did the aura of the Sand Emperor not weaken, but it had somehow become stronger.
As for the Sand Race’s First Elder and the colossal sand sculpture, they weren’t so lucky. They were directly turned to ashes by this palm strike and were deader than dead.
“Mm? He’s actually not dead.”
Qin Jue was slightly surprised.
The power of his palm could definitely kill any Saint Stage expert. Could it be that the Sand Emperor was not a Saint Stage expert but a Grand Saint Stage expert?
Thinking of this, a golden light flashed in Qin Jue’s eyes before he frowned. “Strange, he’s clearly only at the Saint Stage.”
The Sand Emperor didn’t care about any of this. He casually threw away his spear and said coldly, “Human, you have angered me.”
As soon as he finished speaking, the Outer Realm Desert suddenly shook violently, raising a sky full of sand. Several black vortex storms quickly condensed and swept towards Qin Jue from all directions.
In this Outer Realm Desert, the Sand Emperor was a godlike existence. As long as he wanted to, he could create a black vortex storm anywhere and at any time.
Seeing this, Qin Jue flicked his finger lightly, and the newly formed black vortex storm immediately exploded with a bang and dissipated with the wind.
Immediately after, Qin Jue slowly raised his arm, and another golden palm fell from the sky. The Sand Emperor didn’t even have the time to dodge before it was slapped to the ground again.
Under the astonished gazes of Liu Qingbai and the others, a second handprint appeared on the ground, covering an even larger area than before.
“He should be dead this time.”
Qin Jue drank a mouthful of wine and muttered to himself.
“No, he’s not dead yet!”
Liu Qingbai screamed.
Sand condensed and instantly turned into a colossal figure thousands of feet tall. It stood tall and upright as a terrifying pressure spread out. Even Liu Qingbai and the others found it difficult to breathe.
Everyone was shocked.
As everyone knew, the Saint Body was the most powerful technique of any Saint Stage expert. Since the Sand Emperor had used this technique, it meant that he was really going all out.
Another golden palm fell, and the Saint Body shattered with a bang. A third handprint shockingly appeared on the ground.
Even the Saint Body of the Sand Emperor was destroyed instantly. Just what stage was this youth at?
However, soon, the Saint Body condensed again, with an aura that was no weaker than before.
In short, no matter how Qin Jue attacked, the Sand Emperor couldn’t be flattened or smashed. In less than ten minutes, the ground had been destroyed beyond recognition, but the Sand Emperor was still in perfect condition.
“Hahaha! Even though I was asleep for the past two hundred years, my spirit energy was still able to infiltrate this area. So long as I’m in the Outer Realm Desert, no one can kill me!”
The Sand Emperor looked down at Qin Jue and said coldly, “So what if your strength is above mine? If this continues, you will sooner or later be killed by me.”
At this point, even an idiot could tell that Qin Jue was far stronger than the Sand Emperor and had even reached the Grand Saint Stage.
However, the Sand Emperor was not afraid because he had an immortal body. He would not die anyway.
At this point, Qin Jue finally understood what was going on. It was because of this sand.
This was actually not the first time Qin Jue had encountered such a situation. Back in the Wuji Mystic Realm, the Wuji Saint was the same and had fused with the Wuji Mystic Realm.
Which was why Qin Jue directly destroyed the Wuji Mystic Realm and captured the Wuji Saint’s Essence Soul alive.
Of course, Qin Jue couldn’t exactly destroy the Outer Realm Desert. But to kill the Sand Emperor, he also didn’t really need to…
“Since I can’t destroy your body, what if I destroy your Essence Soul?”
Qin Jue grinned, revealing a “friendly” smile.
Hearing this, the thousand-foot-tall Sand Emperor could not help but shudder. “What do you plan on doing?”
Before he could finish his sentence, Qin Jue motioned with his finger and the void shattered. The huge Saint Body of the Sand Emperor was instantly cut into countless pieces. Then Qin Jue motioned with his hand, and one of the pieces immediately flew towards him.
“No! What are you doing?!”
The palm-sized piece of sand seemed to have a life of its own as the voice contained inside it screamed in fear. However, no matter how the Sand Emperor struggled, he could only obediently fall into Qin Jue’s hand.
Without the Sand Emperor’s control, the rest of the sand immediately fell from the sky, making popping sounds.
“Is this your Essence Soul?”
Qin Jue said with interest.
In his hand, the sand had already dissipated, revealing an illusory figure that was more than two fingers tall and looked like a chicken. Apart from the Sand Emperor, who else could it be?
“How… How did you find my Essence Soul?”
The Sand Emperor said in disbelief as he tried to use his spirit energy to escape. Unfortunately, even a Great Sage wouldn’t be able to escape from Qin Jue, let alone a Saint Stage expert.
“I don’t think I need to tell you that.”
“No, don’t kill me. I can be your servant…”
The Sand Emperor had never expected that he would encounter such a powerful human the moment he was revived!
Two hundred years ago, he had finally advanced to the Saint Stage with great difficulty and was prepared to expand his territory and annex the surrounding forces. In the end, he was killed by a passing human and fell into a deep sleep.
Two hundred years later, he thought that he had fused with the Outer Realm Desert and would never die again. In the end, an even more terrifying human had appeared!
What terrible luck!
“No need. You’re too weak.”
Qin Jue was expressionless. He lightly clenched his five fingers and directly crushed the Sand Emperor’s Essence Soul.
The Sand Race Emperor was gone for good this time.
