Chapter 2213: The Great Elder
After the Heavenless Demon Exalt departed, a weak speck of light suddenly appeared with an extremely weak mental pulse in the spatial crack.
This was a fragment of the grand elder’s soul.
Although the Heavenless Demon Exalt had crushed Cheng Ming’s soul, causing it to disperse and vanish in the chaotic spatial crack, Cheng Ming did not truly die.
He used a secret technique from his master to save a fragment of his soul.
With a flash, the fragment of Cheng Ming’s soul vanished.
The white-robed, sagely lord of the Heaven’s Link Peak and six other people of various ages currently sat around an extremely precious table made from white jade on the top of Heaven’s Link Peak.
He discussed the plans to fend off the Tian Empire with them.
The six people who sat on the same table as the lord concealed their presence, without letting any of it leak out.
As such, they seemed just like ordinary people.
However, they were actually peak experts who stood at the apex of the Cloud Plane.
They were terrifying figures where the entire Cloud Plane would shake if they stamped their feet.
“The Heavenless Demon Exalt has already killed the grand elder of the Empyrean Demon Cult as well as the War Demon of the five generals.
It looks like the Heavenless Demon Exalt is confident in dealing with the great elder who rarely shows himself,” said an extremely ordinary old man.
His was extremely old, where his back was hunched, and his face was filled with wrinkles.
He seemed like he was about to pass away from old age.
This old man was the ancestor of the Tong family, one of the peak clans of the Cloud Plane.
He was Tong Wuming.
“The more powerful the Heavenless Demon Exalt is, the worse our position is.
He does not fear the great elder of the Empyrean Demon Cult, which is not good news for us,” said a middle-aged man in green clothes.
He had a resolute face.
He was the ancestor of the Godsfallen clan, Luo Mantian.
The Godsfallen clan was also one of the peak organisations of the Cloud Plane.
They were located in the northern region.
“In my opinion, this is the Heavenless Demon Exalt showing off his strength to us.
He has killed the grand elder of the Empyrean Demon Cult with lightning speed, showing us his strength through how he does not fear the Empyrean Demon Cult at all.
He’s warning us to not put up futile resistance,” growled another old man.
His complexion was not fantastic.
He was the ancestors of the Firegod clan, Lieyan Wuji.
“Peak lord, may I ask how confident you are in defeating the Heavenless Demon Exalt” The founding ancestor of the Cosmic sect, Zhou Zhidao, asked.
All the people seated there looked at the lord of Heaven’s Link Peak after hearing Zhou Zhidao’s question.
The lord of Heaven’s Link Peak was a peak Third Heavenly Layer Grand Prime.
He used to hold the position of the most powerful on the Cloud Plane.
He was a prestigious person on the Cloud Plane who many peak clans respected.
On the current Cloud Plane, if there was someone who had the right to put up a fight against the Heavenless Demon Exalt, it would definitely be the lord of Heaven’s Link Peak.
This was because all the other Grand Primes on the Cloud PLane were at the First or Second Heavenly Layers.
Their strength differed from the Fourth Heavenly Layer Heavenless Demon Exalt by far too much.
The eyes of the peak lord had always remained fixated on outer space, where the grand elder and the Heavenless Demon Exalt fought.
It was extremely distant from the Cloud Plane, so distant that even the tremendous Cloud Plane would seem like a hand-sized piece of land floating in space.
It had surpassed the range that Chaotic Primes could sense.
Only Grand Primes could observe everything that happened there.
A strange light flickered through the peak lord’s eyes.
He said, “I have complete confidence in defeating him when we were at the same level of cultivation, but now that he has reached the Fourth Heavenly Layer before me, there’s no chance for me to defeat him when I meet him next time.
I can only keep him busy for a while at most, but I will still suffer defeat once it gets drawn out.”
“Then what should we do The Tian Empire already possesses three Grand Primes.
They also have some peak clans who stand with them.
In terms of peak experts, we’re completely outmatched in terms of numbers.
And once you throw the Heavenless Demon Exalt into the equation, sigh…” the founding ancestor of the Cosmic sect, Zhou Zhidao, let out a long sigh.
He was worried.
Apart from the lord of Heaven’s Link Peak, all the ancestors who gathered there had heavy hearts.
The situation before them was not optimistic.
“Do we really have to yield to them Do we really have to follow them in the future” Luo Mantian of the Godsfallen clan sighed gently.
All the people present were experts who reigned over an entire region.
They had grown accustomed to being able to order people after spending so much time in a position of power.
Now that they had to serve someone else, they all struggled to accept it.
On the other hand, the peak lord remained calm.
He said, “You don’t need to worry.
There’s no need for us to worry about the Heavenless Demon Exalt anymore.”
“Why do you say that, peak lord”
The lord of Heaven’s Link Peak pointed at outer space, where the Heavenless Demon Exalt had stopped the grand elder, “The Heavenless Demon Exalt has completely offended the Empyrean Demon Cult now.
Moreover, he seems to have taken something extremely important from the hands of the grand elder.
I believe that before long, the great elder of the Empyrean Demon Cult will come to the Cloud Plane in person.”
“Can the great elder of the Empyrean Demon Cult stop the Heavenless Demon Exalt” The eyes of all the peak experts there narrowed.
The lord of Heaven’s Link Peak seemed to think of someone that he had personally witnessed in the past from that.
Immediately, fear flooded his eyes, and he said, “You underestimate the great elder of the Empyrean Demon Cult far too much.
He’s far more terrifying than you imagine him to be.
Since the Heavenless Demon Exalt has offended the great elder, his fate has become determined.
The priority for us right now is to stop the advances of the Tian Empire before the great elder arrives.”
“But just in case, I’d recommend everyone to have some clansmen retreat from the Cloud Plane so that you have some survivors if anything goes bad.”
“If that’s the case, I’ll go back and arrange it immediately.
We will formally come into conflict with the Tian clan very soon, so we don’t have much time left.”
“I hope that the mysterious great elder of the Empyrean Demon Cult can make it in time.”
In an unknown space of the Saints’ World, the soul fragment of the grand elder entered a majestic divine hall with a flash.
“Master!” Very soon, Cheng Ming’s soul fragment arrived before a closed secret room.
He turned into a fist-sized figure and knelt before the room as he trembled.
“What has happened” A serious voice rang out from the secret room.
“We were attacked by the Heavenless Demon Exalt…” Cheng Ming gave a simple explanation of what happened.
Rumble! The door to the secret room opened slowly, and immediately, a cold power of slaughter radiated out.
A black-robed, middle-aged man with a striking appearance walked out.
His face was sunken.
He stared at Cheng Ming’s soul fragment sharply and growled, “What about the person I got you to bring”
“S- she has been taken by the Heavenless Demon Exalt,” Cheng Ming said fearfully.
“The Heavenless Demon Exalt!” In that instance, the middle-aged man’s gaze became extremely terrifying and shocking.
Killing intent radiated from him, and even his eyes became bloodshot from bloodlust.
At that moment, he seemed to have become a bloodthirsty beast.
Cheng Ming, who knelt in the air as a soul fragment, became filled with fear and unease.
He had followed his master for so many years, but he had never seen his master so angered.
“I can’t wait any longer.
My original body has to break free immediately,” the middle-aged man’s face was sunken.
He let Cheng Ming leave to rebuild his body before turning around and entering the secret room again.
The door closed once more.
At the same time, there was a barren planet of deathly silence in an extremely distant region of space.
A middle-aged man who seemed exactly the same as the master Cheng Ming spoke of sat underground in white robes.
Suddenly, the person’s eyes snapped open, and intense killing intent flashed through them.
Then he took a step and vanished immediately.
When he appeared once again, he was in outer space.
He closed his eyes and sensed for something silently before shooting off in a certain direction.
