It was 12 Semi-God Realm warriors against five. The outcome of the fight had been pre-determined at the beginning unless the five were exceptionally capable or one of them possessed earth-shaking skills.
Jun Hongye and the other four were merely average Semi-God Realm warriors. Apart from Jun Hongye, who learned a ninth-rank Profound Meaning, the others mastered only eight rank ones. Jun Hongye and the Semi-God Realm warrior of the Hao Family had ninth rank Bloodlines. That being said… Feng Family and Qi Family also had ninth rank Bloodlines.
Therefore, the result of the fight had been decided from the very beginning. Lu Li retreated after the fight broke out. He had come here to start the fight. Neither side would give up. Lu Li was not going to stay here to waste more time.
The Wicked Bead flew away. Instead of going toward the City of Feng, the Wicked Bead turned to the east. Jun Hongye had every intention to go after it, but he had to consider his own life at the moment.
None of the powerful warriors of the Feng Family, Qi Family, and other families of the Central Imperial Universe tried to intercept the bead. They couldn’t even if they wanted to. Therefore, they didn’t care that the bead had flown away.
“Boom, boom, boom~”
Lu Li heard the loud noises coming from behind him. Through the Wicked Bead, he could feel the trembling in space and could see the huge cracks across the sky. Needless to say, it was a tragic fight. It was very likely that Jun Hongye and his team could not leave the Town of Hell alive.
“Nobody is following me? Should I… just go to the City of Chaos?”
Lu Li had been flying for the time for half an incense stick to burn, but he noticed that no Semi-God Realm warrior was coming after him. He was delighted. The City of Chaos was not far away. Jun Hongye and those of the Central Imperial Universe were busy fighting. If he was fortunate enough, he could arrive at the City of Chaos with no Semi-God Realm warriors’ presence. He could use the Earth Immortal Realm warriors to protect him while he dashed into the Purgatory of Primordial Chaos quickly.
After he reached the Purgatory of Primordial Chaos, the rest of the journey could become easier. He would return to his home. Once he entered the Prison of Water, he would be in complete safety. No Earth Immortal Realm or higher realm warriors could go down to the Prison of Water, and he feared no Human Sovereign Realm warriors.
“Okay. Let’s take a look of the City of Chaos and decide from there.”
Opportunities rarely knocked twice. He could leave if something was not right there. In that case, he could go on and wander around in the Central Imperial Unvierse. The Wicked Bead’s speed was at the Earth Immortal Realm now. It would only take him three for four days to arrive at the City of Chaos.
What Lu Li didn’t know was—in the mountains below him hid many scouts. They all carried a special stone which could generate a cloaking formation. They could hide with nobody noticing them until careful check.
Lu Li was flying fast, hurrying his way to the City of Chaos. What was more, he didn’t mind that some scouts were probing.
“Tell Progenitor Three that Lu Li is really going to the City of Chaos!”
A scout leader came out from the cave he was hiding in after Lu Li went by. Another scout next to him crushed a jade talisman to deliver the message.
Along the way to the City of Chaos, there were scouts everywhere. An inescapable net had been woven. Feng Family had been keeping tracks of Lu Li’s movements, waiting for Lu Li to step into the trap.
In the Town of Hell, the fight continued. Jun Hongye was fighting to win or die. There was no other possibility for him. Either he beat back warriors of the Central Imperial Universe or he lost his life here.
On his side, the only advantage was their unity and their daredevil spirit. They believed that their main focus should be on the Feng Family and Qi Family. The other family warriors would not risk their lives in the fight. After all, they were not that desperate, and they had a way to retreat…
The five did as they thought. They worked together to attack the three warriors of the Feng Family. Eventually, they managed to eliminate one of the Feng Family Semi-God Realm warriors at the cost of four being injured.
Then, the five switched to another target. They began to attack a Qi Family warrior. Jun Family lost a Semi-God Realm warrior, but Jun Hongye managed to kill the Qi Family warrior with his spear.
In the time for merely more than a dozen breaths, two Semi-God Realm warriors perished. The five had overwhelmed warriors of the Central Imperial Universe with their insanity. The five didn’t seem to care about their own lives. They had become lunatics like those from the Mage Imperial Universe and would not stop until their lives had come to an end.
That being said…
Jun Hongye had underestimated the degree of determination of Qi Family, Feng Family, and the other Families. They didn’t show any signs of retreat. As a matter of fact, there was no escape for the Central Imperial Universe, either. If Jun Hongye had the Wicked Bead, then the entire Central Imperial Universe would be purged. Even the ancestral lands where families hid their disciples could be dug out.
The death of two Semi-God Realm warriors of the Central Imperial Universe didn’t make the warriors back down. Instead, it had instilled morale into them. If death was what Jun Hongye sought after, then he should get it.
Semi-God Realm warriors of the Central Imperial Universe began to use full strength as well. If the dozens of them could not kill the five enemies, their families would be shamed forever.
Faced with the formidable attack, Jun Hongye and his team felt overwhelmed. There were only four of them left, and they had to bear attacks coming from all sides. The four felt their hands and feet were bound. They must try to dodge and defend themselves unless they were ready to sacrifice another member.
Death was not on Jun Hongye’s agenda nor Li Family Patriarch’s. They were the cornerstone in their respective families, and at their death, their families would descend into chaos.
Jun Hongye’s side was united. However, the situation changed drastically as one or two of them began to fear death. Their formation was disturbed, and it became more difficult for them to fight back.
The Hao Family Semi-God Realm warrior had already been injured. Even his Quasi Relic armor was destroyed by Qi Family and Feng Family progenitor together. Hao Family Semi-God Realm warrior fell down like a loose kite. Two Semi-God Realm warriors chased after him and pounded on him. Death was practically knocking on the Hao Family warrior’s door.
Jun Hongye and Li Family Patriarch looked at each other, both wanting to give up. But it didn’t mean that Jun Hongye was ready to let go of the Wicked Bead. He was only trying to temporarily alienate himself from the fight. To continue here would only lead to his death.
Jun Hongye yelled as he shot out a huge satin which smashed the three Semi-God Realm warriors in front of him like a storm of wind. Jun Hongye flew away along the open path and soon disappeared into the horizon.
“Brother Ren, run!”
Li Family Patriarch fled to another direction. He vanished in midair and then re-emerged in a place three hundred miles away. There, he vanished again and re-appeared after another three hundred miles. He kept on teleporting as a way to escape.
Seeing Jun Hongye and Li Family Patriarch running away, the Ren Family warrior began to call their names. He thought they had agreed to fight till their last breaths. He thought they were in this together. He felt utterly frustrated, feeling the fierce glances thrown at him as if he was already a dead man.
The Ren Family Semi-God Realm warrior was soon submerged by the various attacks coming from all sides. It was too late for him to run now. He was blasted to death before long. Those Semi-God Realm warriors that went down to chase Hao Family warrior came back. The latter had been killed.
“Go after them!”
Feng Family progenitor was glowing with excitement. He had lost a Semi-God Realm warrior himself, but he now had complete control of the situation. He had planted scouts within a large area. It didn’t matter that Jun Hongye and Li Family Patriarch had escaped. As long as the two could be killed in a couple of days, everything would still be fine.
What was more, the Wicked Bead was really flying toward the City of Chaos just as he had expected. Everything was under control. Lu Li had thought that all the Semi-God Realm warriors had come to fight here and that there were no powerful warriors in the City of Chaos. He had the wrong notion that the city was a good place to escape to.
The fact was not only were there Semi-God Realm warriors in the city. There were actually three. Feng Family progenitor had set this up, waiting for Lu Li to go into the trap by himself.
