The massive Boat of Mausoleum advanced mightily. It was unstoppable.
“What should we do, North True?” Mi Ya Master asked via voice transmission. “If we still don’t stop him and let him advance further… he will soon go beyond our area of control. In the peripheral region, there is Purple Moon Holy Land, and the group of power from the first reincarnation era; such a large group of super great beings out there! There are even as many as 20 to 30-odd universe supreme beings present!”
“I know!” North True was also very anxious.
He was aware of the situation. Luo Feng might have been an heir, but the groups of powers from the Universe Ocean honestly did not fear this heir. Without even considering those from the first reincarnation era—who did not even fear their quickly approaching doomsday and were capable of doing anything—it was just these two holy land universes. With the commands given to them by their two great ancestors, they were naturally even more fearless.
This time, East Emperor Holy Land was relying on the quantity of supreme true treasures it had! And it was also relying on the fact that the other groups were not united and that this was within the innermost control region.
There were other reasons, of course, for why other groups of powers were willing to stay on the periphery. Other than their lack of unity and strength, the more important reason was that they did not believe that an heir of the pulse of Duan Dong River could be so easily apprehended! At most, if they saw that the situation was unfavorable to them, they would charge forward with brute force.
“What should we do, what should we do?” North True Star Master was anxious and frustrated, racking his brains to thinking of ways to stop Luo Feng or to trap him.
“Go!” North True Star Master stood within the void space and with a sudden wave, a gigantic, polyhedral black sphere instantly transformed into a dazzling ray of black light. As it continued flying, the black light ray grew thicker and larger. In terms of physical size, it was bigger than the Boat of Mausoleum.
Soon after, a loud rumble was heard as the ray of black light crashed straight into the Boat of Mausoleum. The Boat of Mausoleum trembled but was not the least bit damaged.
In his state of anxiety, North True Star Master’s avatar in the Holy Land Universe asked East Emperor Ancestor for help right away.
“Ancestor, Ancestor!” said North True Star master. “That Milky Way Horde Leader, Luo Feng, is driving the Boat of Mausoleum out, but we are unable to stop him. Even our supreme true treasures are useless! What should we do now?”
East Emperor Ancestor appeared out of nowhere. “Can’t apprehend him? Can’t stop him?”
“No way—no way at all!” North True Star Master replied. “This Boat of Mausoleum is much more powerful than the one we obtained previously. After Duan Dong River remodeled it, this Boat of Mausoleum is extraordinary. No matter what method we try—nabbing, entrapping, bounding, or even soul attacks and material attacks—all means are to no avail.”
East Emperor Ancestor was frustrated, too. What could be done? This time around, he had sent out a team of their top ten best sixth-tier universe masters to support North True! And he even gave North True Star Master several supreme true treasures. Even if the enemy had a supreme true treasure palace, by right, North True Star Master should be able to entrap him without much difficulty.
“Duan Dong River’s reputation is well earned.” East Emperor Ancestor frowned. “You have been following Milky Way Horde Leader Luo Feng!” he shouted. “Make sure you have him in sight at all times. This time, it is not only us. That Purple Moon is also after him… especially the lunatics from the first reincarnation era who are willing to do anything. You should make sure you follow him close enough and wait for your chance to strike… Once the perfect opportunity arrives, snatch it from Luo Feng.”
“What if I fail to snatch it away?” North True Star Master asked, very worried.
What a joke! More than half of the universe supreme masters from the first reincarnation era, a handful of universe supreme masters from the second reincarnation era, and probably one or two universe supreme masters from the primal universe had turned up to lay ambush. This area alone had 20 to 30 universe supreme masters—not to mention the number of universe masters, which was similar to that of the universe supreme masters. It was chaotic to a certain degree, and regardless of how formidable he was, it worried North True Star Master that he might not be able to catch hold of Luo Feng.
“What if you fail to snatch it…?” East Emperor Ancestor hesitated for a while, then gave his orders. “You will do this…”
After he had finished listening to East Emperor Ancestor’s orders, North True Star Master was in great shock.
“This—this… this is too…” North True Star Master was in disbelief.
“Just do as I say,” East Emperor Ancestor instructed.
“Yes,” North True Star Master replied deferentially.
But in his heart, he was mumbling his complaints as he thought to himself, Luo Feng is certainly one lucky fellow.
Flame Ice region, because it was where an heir of the pulse of the Duan Dong River from the ancient civilization emerged, therefore it became the region where a great number of great beings from the Universe Ocean gathered.
“It’s the Boat of Mausoleum!”
“The heir is driving the Boat of Mausoleum out now. East Emperor Holy Land did not manage to catch or stop it!”
“Our chance is here!”
In the external domain, Purple Moon Holy Land alone was not enough to fully control the situation, and the various groups of powers from the first reincarnation era were so anxious that they could not hold back at all. One by one, the universe supreme masters were all launching attacks right away. Up in midair… streams of powerful yet terrifying attacks were launched so extensively that they could easily contort and shatter an entire space. There were some who tried in vain to swallow the Boat of Mausoleum, and there were some who directly threw attacks to create a commotion! The more chaotic it was… the higher chances the weaker ones had to fish in troubled waters.
Hong! Peng! Hua!
The Boat of Mausoleum vibrated and trembled repeatedly.
A gigantic beast that was longer than one light year came roaring by. Its huge, scaly wings were outspread, and its mouth opened to reveal a bottomless black hole. In one gulp, it devoured the Boat of Mausoleum.
Peng! Hong! Hong!
Almost instantly, a total of nine supreme true treasures were crashing and ramming into that gigantic beast, causing it to tremble and quiver, then collapse and disintegrate.
From afar, Divine Eye Clan’s First True Master, Third True Master, Fourth True Master, Fifth True Master, and Sixth True Master looked furious. Earlier, they had waited for the right opportunity to strike, and when they saw how the Boat of Mausoleum was seemingly losing control over its ability of flight upon being continuously attached by various parties, they took immediate action, forming Eternal True God Beast and devouring the Boat of Mausoleum in one mouthful!
“You idiots from Divine Eye Clan! Are you thinking of seizing the heir of the pulse of Duan Dong River? In your dreams.” A huge skeleton seated on a faraway white throne let out a hoarse shout. “My Skeleton Clan had our eyes on you all long ago.”
“Skeleton clan!” The five true masters of Divine Eye Clan got even more furious.
The Divine Eye clan from the first reincarnation era and the Skeleton clan were formidable clans. When they were still living in the primal universe, the Skeleton clan was once rampant throughout the universe, defeating other clans and groups of powers one after another. Their arrogance was beyond words, but after the emergence of the Divine Eye clan, they quickly suppressed the Skeleton clan; since then, the Skeleton Clan had been kept under suppression.
The two clans had fought one another for almost three reincarnation eras. Previously, when the seven true masters had joined forces, their concerted efforts had brought about complete suppression of Skeleton clan, but now… with two fewer true masters, when the two clans faced one another in battles, it was virtually effortless for the Skeleton clan.
“What a bunch of lunatics.”
Being devoured in one mouthful by that gigantic beast earlier had certainly dealt Luo Feng a good shock. He had been prepared to manipulate the Boat of Mausoleum into high acceleration to blast the beast into bits and pieces, but at that moment, the other universe supreme masters had rained attacks on the beast, causing it to break and fall apart.
“Within just ten seconds, 16 supreme true treasures were attacking me.”
Luo Feng was also thunderstruck while in the control hall of the Boat of Mausoleum. He had expected to find himself within an inescapable dragnet, yet it was still a shock to fall within one. After all, prior to these attacks, the universe supreme masters were still quite a distance away from him, and under normal circumstances, universe supreme masters would not stoop so low as to fight against those who were below them in terms of social status.
The only time this happened was when Virtual-Real Devil God wanted to exterminate him, but his attacks had been warded off when Double-Face Ancestral God intervened. Virtual-Real Devil God had not looked upon Luo Feng as a worthy opponent in the first place… To Virtual-Real Devil God, dealing with Luo Feng was a minor matter, or probably just a matter of convenience.
This time, it was different! More than half of the universe supreme masters from the first reincarnation era and other universe supreme masters had all made him their target, and all of them were going crazy trying to seize him.
All kinds of noises resounded.
Be it palace type supreme true treasure or spiritual force weapon type supreme true treasure or close-combat type supreme true treasure, one after another, they all fell onto the Boat of Mausoleum. This was a great eye-opener of Luo Feng. All the supreme true treasures of the entire Universe Ocean added up was, in fact, quite a sorry amount. Normally, supreme true treasures were owned by universe supreme masters, and that very day, almost one-third of the total number of universe supreme masters were gathered at the same place, trying to seize Luo Feng.
“It’s not working out! I cannot move this Boat of Mausoleum at all. There isn’t even a scratch to be found on the Boat of Mausoleum, much less a crack. It continues flying ahead. We cannot even get it to stop.”
All the universe supreme masters first entered a state of frenzy. Soon, the realization dawned upon them of how terrifying the Boat of Mausoleum was. Even the major clans who initially wreaked havoc on purpose because they were afraid the other groups of powers would successfully seize the heir did not dare to create more trouble.
Similar to how the gigantic beast by Divine Eye Clan had been attacked until it crumbled the moment it was formed, various groups now seemed to have a tacit understanding that no one should start creating trouble.
Suddenly, there was a surge of powerful attacks.
“I don’t believe that with so many great beings around, a single Boat of Mausoleum cannot be taken down.”
“Now that the Skeleton Clan is not creating any more trouble, we should act quickly.”
There was a frightening outburst of attacks. Three lofty, huge golden fingers appeared out of thin air and immediately grabbed onto the Boat of Mausoleum, but to no avail. The Boat of Mausoleum continued to fly ahead as it forcibly pulled the three huge golden fingers along with it…
The gigantic beast of the Divine Eye Clan appeared once again to bite the Boat of Mausoleum. Yet the Boat of Mausoleum continued to fly ahead. The driving force of flight was so powerful that it could force the gigantic beast to fly along with it, and as it flew, it was continuously expanding at the same time. That very moment, the universe supreme masters from various groups of powers were getting anxious, and everyone started attacking in their attempt to break apart that beast.
“How could the driving force of flight of that Boat of Mausoleum be so powerful? Even for a palace type supreme true treasure, while it can block off attacks from various parties, the most it could do while warding off attacks would be to remain unmoving at its spot. But this Boat of Mausoleum is able to continue flying. Its flying power is even more powerful than the total binding force of ten supreme true treasures put together.”
Joint efforts were futile. It could not be stopped! The various groups were aware… Luo Feng had no difficulty flying ahead until he was out of the Universe Boat and back into the primal universe!
“Haha…” Within the Boat of Mausoleum, Luo Feng was exceptionally at ease. He was able to bring all the pinnacle existences of the Universe Ocean to their wits’ end. Such a sense of satisfaction was simply unbeatable.
A voice transmission was directed to the Boat of Mausoleum via godly power. “Luo Feng!”
Luo Feng, who was in control of the Boat of Mausoleum, obviously knew.
“I am North True Star Master representing East Emperor Ancestor, and I would like to suggest a deal.” North True Star Master transmitted his voice message.
“A deal? East Emperor Ancestor?” Thoughts sprang up in his mind.
In a faraway corner of Flame Ice region.
Faintly, time and space were contorted. This contorted space concealed a green mountain.
“The pulse of Duan Dong River… Truly worthy of his reputation!” Sitting Mountain Guest looked afar with a smile. “The previous Duan Dong River remodeled the Boat of Mausoleum to make it so powerful. Seems like I was overly worried.”
“I would really love to take a look at the inheritance of the pulse of Duan Dong River. There should be much information on how the pulse of his Duan Dong River went about refining treasures. After all, this was one of the pinnacle inheritances; it was just that, under the willpower of the primal universe… even for this disciple of mine, he may not know the truly profound part of the pulse of Duan Dong River.”
Sitting Mountain Guest gently shook his head.
Soon after, this contorted space and time resumed normality. Sitting Mountain Guest had secretly left the scene.
