Chapter 293: Self-Destruction
Translator: Atlas Studios Editor: Atlas Studios
Like a broken mirror, the entire void suddenly shattered. With a light sound, the black-robed old man slowly fell, but he had already been reduced to a few hundred pieces, his soul destroyed!
There was dead silence!
In the distance, the thirty plus protectors looked at each other in shock, feeling that they were dreaming.
Elder Feng was dead?
That was a God King Stage expert!
The white-robed elder screamed as he rushed forward and hugged the black-robed elder’s corpse fragments. Tears fell like rain.
It had to be known that not only were the two of them brothers, but the cultivation techniques they cultivated also complemented each other. They basically never left each other’s side. The white-robed old man never expected that the black-robed old man would be instantly killed by Qin Jue!
The white-robed old man roared towards the sky with boundless anger.
He tried to circulate his spirit energy to heal the black-robed old man. However, it was useless because the black-robed old man’s soul had already disappeared.
“Ahhh, I’m going to kill you!”
The white-robed old man suddenly raised his head, his eyes bloodshot as he stared fixedly at Qin Jue, seemingly having lost his mind. “Die!”
The air was torn apart, and the white-robed old man instantly rushed towards Qin Jue with a stream of light, looking as if he could do anything.
“Come back!” The Heavenly Emperor shouted hurriedly.
With the strength Qin Jue had displayed just now, the Heavenly Emperor could tell that he was absolutely not someone the white-robed old man could match.
However, at this moment, the white-robed old man didn’t care whether he was a match or not. As he rushed towards Qin Jue, the spirit energy in his body had already become incomparably violent. He actually wanted to self-destruct his divine body and die with Qin Jue!
The other thirty plus protectors immediately turned pale from fright when they saw this and hurriedly used their divine abilities to escape.
What did it mean for a God King Stage expert to self-destruct?
Even if the white-robed old man’s target wasn’t them, the shockwaves that spread out would most likely severely injure them, upper True God Stage experts.
Even half of the Heavenly Palace would be razed to the ground!
This was even under the restriction of various array formations. Otherwise, not to mention the Heavenly Palace, even the entire void would probably collapse!
Apart from Qin Jue, the Heavenly Emperor was the only one who still remained calm. However, he also raised a spirit energy barrier to resist the explosion.
No one could underestimate the self-destruction of a God King Stage expert, especially when this God King Stage expert was determined to die.
However, the Heavenly Emperor did not expect that the white-robed old man would be willing to self-destruct his divine body in order to avenge his younger brother.
“You will die with us!”
The white-robed old man seemed to have gone crazy. He no longer had the sage-like, gentle, and refined appearance from before. The spirit energy in his body had finally expanded to the limit and spurted out from every pore on his body, drawing in the spirit qi of the heavens and the earth and sweeping out in all directions.
At the same time, the white-robed old man’s divine body exploded like a star, turning into countless specks of light that enveloped Qin Jue!
The world changed color as a terrifying energy ripple instantly submerged Qin Jue!
In an instant, the sky turned pitch-black, as if the void was hanging upside down!
Boom! Boom! Boom!
The entire Heavenly Palace shook. Hundreds of array formations were activated continuously, but they were unable to withstand this force. They shattered one after another, and all the buildings directly evaporated, including the entire Primordial Chaos Divine Hall.
In hundreds of thousands of years, this should be the first time the interior of the Heavenly Palace had suffered such a terrifying destruction.
Fortunately, the Heavenly Emperor had activated a hidden array formation in time and forcefully condensed space. This had greatly reduced the range of the explosion. Otherwise, the losses would have been even worse.
Even so, a large number of higher-ups of the Heavenly Palace were still engulfed by the explosion and died without a grave.
“What’s going on? What a terrifying destructive force. Could it be that God King Stage experts are fighting?”
A Heavenly Palace expert who was lucky enough to escape looked in the direction of the Primordial Chaos Divine Hall and said in shock.
However, there was no longer any Primordial Chaos Divine Hall there, only charred wasteland.
“That was terrifying. Thank God I ran fast.”
Another person heaved a sigh of relief and suggested, “I think we should flee further.”
Everyone chimed in and turned to leave without hesitation. They did not even dare to use their spirit senses to probe what was going on.
This sort of might was simply not something they could participate in.
The spirit energy screen shattered as the Heavenly Emperor walked out. His hands were behind his back, and the third eye between his brows had already opened. It was pure black and the pupil could not be distinguished. It was the exact opposite of the Heavenly Emperor’s remnant soul in the Divine Realm.
Even the Heavenly Emperor did not dare to take the self-destruction of a God King Stage expert head-on. Although he would not die, he would definitely be injured. If it weren’t for the fact that the target was not him, the Heavenly Emperor would definitely not have been so relaxed.
The place Qin Jue was previously at was now covered in smoke and dust that filled the sky. A large area of space had collapsed, and below it was a bottomless pit that was 10,000 meters in diameter. It almost pierced through the entire Heavenly Palace. Within the pit, there no longer seemed to be any signs of life.
“Is he dead?”
The Heavenly Emperor’s brows relaxed.
From now on, his fate would completely change!
As for the death of the two elders, the Heavenly Emperor did not care at all. They were just two insignificant pawns.
On the contrary, the Heavenly Emperor had to thank “Old Master Yun” for helping him resolve his greatest problem.
In addition, the reason why the Heavenly Emperor had activated the hidden array formation to reduce the range of the explosion was to let Qin Jue, who was at the center of the explosion, suffer more injuries. Now it seemed that this method was very successful.
Just as the Heavenly Emperor was about to throw his head back and laugh, a cough suddenly sounded from the dust in front of him, and the smile on the Heavenly Emperor’s face froze.
The Heavenly Emperor was stunned.
After a while, the smoke and dust dissipated, and the spatial rift gradually closed. Qin Jue’s figure also appeared.
His clothes were still as white as snow, and there were no changes. Even the wine pot in his hand was unscathed.
“Is it over?” Qin Jue took a sip of spirit wine and said casually.
The Heavenly Emperor :”…”
What kind of monster was this guy?
Qin Jue raised his eyebrows and grabbed at the air. A ball of light immediately fell into his hand.
“Let go of me!”
The ball of light emitted a sharp cry filled with resentment.
On careful look, it was the white-robed old man who had just self-destructed.
However, at this moment, the white-robed old man’s divine body had been destroyed, leaving only a wisp of his remnant soul. If it weren’t for the fact that Qin Jue’s spirit sense had been constantly observing his surroundings after entering the Heavenly Palace, it would have been possible for the white-robed old man to escape.
“Let go of me!”
The white-robed elder struggled crazily. His remnant soul was faintly discernible, as if it would dissipate at any moment.
What surprised Qin Jue was that this wisp of remnant soul actually contained quite a strong spirit energy, equivalent to a Great Void Stage expert.
“Didn’t you say that we were all going to die together?” Qin Jue said with interest.
The white-robed elder opened his mouth but was speechless.
He did want Qin Jue to die with the two of them, but at the last moment, he hesitated and gave himself a chance to survive.
He originally thought that even if he couldn’t kill Qin Jue, he could still severely injure him. However, he didn’t expect Qin Jue to be unscathed!
“But don’t worry, I’ve always liked to help others. I’ll send you to accompany your younger brother now.” Qin Jue grinned and said coldly.
The white-robed old man was shocked and was about to beg for mercy when he was directly crushed by Qin Jue and completely disappeared from this world.
