Chapter 299: Reconstructing the Heavenly Palace
Translator: Atlas Studios Editor: Atlas Studios
“Feng Xi, do you know your crimes?”
The Heavenly Emperor’s tone was cold and emotionless.
After absorbing the true essence, the Heavenly Emperor’s remnant soul had already been restored. Not only had he regained his memories, but his strength had also increased greatly.
One had to know that even when he was alive, the Heavenly Emperor was only an upper realm True God Stage expert. It was just that he had mistakenly thought of himself as a God King Stage expert.
Even though the Heavenly Emperor already had the strength to break through to the God King Stage before his death, it was already inconceivable for him to be able to directly recover his previous cultivation when he was alive after being dead for so long.
Moreover, the Heavenly Emperor did not even have a physical body yet.
“Old thing, just kill me already!”
Seeing that there was no hope, Feng Xi gritted his teeth and closed his eyes, looking fearless.
“Hahaha, old thing?”
The Heavenly Emperor was in no hurry to kill Feng Xi. Instead, he teased, “No matter how I look at it, aren’t you the older one here?”
Indeed, Feng Xi was already injured and had lost the True Essence of the Heavenly Emperor. He had fallen out of the upper realm God King Stage and had suffered heavy losses. He now looked like an old man on the verge of death, as if he would die at any moment.
On the other hand, the Heavenly Emperor had sharp brows, bright eyes, and a dignified aura. He was extremely charming. In the ancient times, countless female cultivators had been charmed by him. He might even look even younger after finishing constructing his body.
“Hmph! If you want to kill or torture me, do as you wish. Why humiliate me like this?!” Feng Xi said angrily.
Under normal circumstances, even if he lost the Heavenly Emperor True Essence and fell out of his realm, Feng Xi should still be able to defeat the Heavenly Emperor.
After all, Feng Xi had cultivated for hundreds of thousands of years more than the Heavenly Emperor.
However, at this moment, not only was Feng Xi severely injured, but his bones had also been shattered. Even his ocular technique had been crippled. Any Great Void Stage expert could easily kill him, let alone the Heavenly Emperor.
“Hehe, that would be too easy on you.”
The Heavenly Emperor narrowed his eyes and said coldly, “Hundreds of thousands of years ago, because I was too soft-hearted, I made a huge mistake and caused the destruction of the Heavenly Palace. I didn’t expect that after hundreds of thousands of years, you would still be unrepentant.”
“Fengxi, this is the last time I’ll be calling your name. You disappoint me.”
Hearing this, Feng Xi was stunned for a moment before he felt as if he was struck by lightning. His head buzzed, and two streams of tears unknowingly fell from the corner of his eyes!
“This time, I won’t show mercy.”
The Heavenly Emperor was expressionless, without any pity.
Hundreds of thousands of years ago, the Heavenly Emperor had accepted Feng Xi as his disciple and treated him as his own. He had given him all the best things, but in the end, he had been betrayed.
Now that he had narrowly escaped death and regained his memories, how could the Heavenly Emperor be soft-hearted again?
“Senior, can you leave this guy to me?”
The Heavenly Emperor turned around and bowed to Qin Jue. His greeting had already changed.
Although he didn’t know how Qin Jue had captured Feng Xi here, if it weren’t for Qin Jue, the Heavenly Emperor believed that it would have been impossible for him to recover his memories easily, let alone take revenge on Feng Xi.
“Do whatever you want.”
Qin Jue shrugged his shoulders indifferently.
“Thank you, Senior.”
After obtaining permission, the Heavenly Emperor immediately raised his palm without hesitation and condensed his spirit energy.
“Master, I was wrong!”
Suddenly, Feng Xi knelt down with a plop and hugged the Heavenly Emperor’s thigh as he cried. This should be the first time Feng Xi had called the Heavenly Emperor master since the Heavenly Emperor had died.
Perhaps it was because he was touched by the Heavenly Emperor’s words, or perhaps he felt that the Heavenly Emperor would really not show mercy, Feng Xi actually begged bitterly. He no longer had the fearless appearance from before.
The Heavenly Emperor took a deep breath and said indifferently, “It’s too late.”
In the next moment, the spirit energy between the Heavenly Emperor’s palm suddenly emitted a terrifying destructive aura that heavily hit Feng Xi’s head!
As expected, blood instantly flowed from Feng Xi’s seven orifices as he fell down. If not for the fact that the body of a lower realm God King Stage expert was indestructible, this palm would probably have torn him into pieces.
Of course, the Heavenly Emperor would not let Feng Xi die so easily. He opened his palm and a ball of spirit energy appeared, imprisoning Feng Xi’s soul.
“What are you going to do to me?”
Feng Xi’s face was filled with fear as he attempted to break through the spirit energy shackles. However, how could he succeed in such a state?
“I told you that killing you would be letting you off too lightly. I’ll lock you in the Soul Devouring Tower and burn you with my divine flame for ten thousand years until your soul burns out.” The Heavenly Emperor said faintly.
Feng Xi was shocked. “Old thing, you’re too vicious!”
Others might not know about the Soul Devouring Tower, but Feng Xi knew it very well.
That was a place the Heavenly Palace specially used to torture the souls of its enemies. It was not inferior to the eighteen layers of hell. Moreover, he had to withstand the burning of the divine flames for ten thousand years. It was simply a living hell!
The Heavenly Emperor did not think much of this. He clenched his fist and directly put away Feng Xi’s soul, preparing to slowly torture it in the future.
After doing this, the Heavenly Emperor bowed to Qin Jue again with an extremely sincere attitude. “Senior, thank you for your help. Otherwise, I’m afraid it would be very difficult for me to take revenge in this lifetime.”
Before he could finish speaking, the Heavenly Emperor suddenly realized that something was wrong. He was already dead. Could this still be considered as his lifetime?
“No need, it was nothing.” Qin Jue stretched lazily and said casually.
Because of what happened last time, Qin Jue had a good impression of the Heavenly Emperor. Otherwise, with Qin Jue’s personality, he absolutely wouldn’t have interfered and brought Feng Xi here.
After weighing his words, the Heavenly Emperor continued, “By the way, Senior, I plan to rebuild the Heavenly Palace. What do you think?”
Now that the Heavenly Emperor had revived, he had avenged himself. Although he didn’t have a physical body, in the entire Inner Realm, besides Qin Jue, there was no one who could match him. If the Heavenly Palace was rebuilt, it would definitely cause a huge impact on the entire void.
However, Qin Jue was somewhat speechless.
He couldn’t understand why he had to do with all of this. Why did the Heavenly Emperor need to ask for his permission?
Just as Qin Jue didn’t know whether to laugh or to cry, he frowned as if recalling something. He looked around and said, “Are you going to rebuild the Heavenly Palace here?”
The Heavenly Emperor was stunned and hurriedly answered, “Yes.”
This was originally the ruins of the former Heavenly Palace. After its transformation, aside from lacking living beings, it was no weaker than the White Dragon World in any aspect. In fact, it even surpassed it.
“Can you save a spot for me?” Qin Jue asked.
The Celestial Thearch was dumbfounded, but he still nodded. “No problem.”
“Hahaha, thank you. I still have something to do. I’ll leave first. Goodbye.”
After saying this, Qin Jue flew up and quickly disappeared from sight, leaving the even more dumbfounded Heavenly Emperor behind.
Leaving just like that?
Didn’t he have anything else to say?
Without waiting for the Heavenly Emperor to react, the World Mountain on the Divine Seal Altar suddenly rose and flew in the direction Qin Jue had just left.
The Heavenly Emperor :”…”
In fact, the reason why Qin Jue was in such a hurry to leave was because he didn’t want to participate in such a matter at all. He couldn’t even be bothered with the internal affairs of the Xuanyi Mountain Sect, so why would he care about the Heavenly Palace?
“Hu, I still prefer to drink wine.”
Taking out a pot of spirit wine, Qin Jue opened it and said happily.
Right at this moment, violent sounds of battle suddenly sounded from ahead, and layers of energy ripples swept out.
Qin Jue raised his eyes and looked over, his face slightly gloomy.
