War Sovereign Soaring The Heavens

Chapter 3342: A Close Call

Since most of the titled Celestial Emperors were distracted by their respective battles, none of them noticed that Duan Ling Tian had secretly used the power from the Five Divine Elements. Earlier, he had instructed Lian Qiu to attack Lei Ying to distract her and prevent her from noticing the Five Divine Elements. Now that he had injured Lei Ying, he knew that he would not be able to use the Five Divine Elements’ power again without exposing their existence. After all, even if the other titled Celestial Emperors did not notice it, Lei Ying would certainly notice it.

‘What was that?’ Lei Ying was thoroughly shocked as she looked at the purple figure in the distance. The injuries she sustained from Duan Ling Tian’s attack were far heavier than the injuries she sustained from Xu Ya Si’s attack. How did a mere Celestial Lord like Duan Ling Tian launch such a deadly attack?

How could Lei Ying know that not only did Duan Ling Tian borrow the Five Divine Elements’ power, but he had also used the Devata Artifact, the Seven Orifices Exquisite Sword? Otherwise, how could he have dealt such serious injuries to her?

Moreover, Duan Ling Tian had instructed Lian Qiu to attack Lei Ying so that she would be distracted from him to prevent the Five Divine Elements from being exposed.

At this moment…

Bang!

A loud noise rang in the air.

The three titled Celestial Emperors from the Heavenly Palace of the Boundless Heaven’s attacks destroyed Xu Ya Si’s attack and injured her. She was pushed back quite a distance before she could stabilize her footing. Blood trickled out for the corners of her lips as she inhaled deadly. At the same time, her Undead Doppelganger returned to her body.

“Seniors, you certainly live up to your reputation…” Xu Ya Si said after wiping the blood off the corners of her lips. Her expression was grim as she stared at the three titled Celestial Emperors.

“Girl, your strength is impressive,” the Water Staff Celestial Emperor said as hints of surprise flashed in her eyes, “We might not be able to take you down if we didn’t join forces…”

The Soaring Celestial Emperor looked at Xu Ya Si and said with a hint of admiration, “Your strength is comparable to that kid You Feng Yu…”

“Xu Ya Si, you’ve given your best shot… It’s impossible for you to stop us. You’ve done everything you could for them so they can’t blame you for failing to help them,” the Explosive Flame Celestial Emperor said.

It was clear to everyone that Xu Ya Si intended to help Duan Ling Tian flee this place.

Xu Ya Si looked at the three titled Celestial Emperors and solemnly said, “Seniors, I’ve already told him that if he leaves today, I’ll hunt him down and bring him back after three days. As the Head Warden of the Thousand Chains Prison in the Heavenly Pool Palace, I’ll keep my words…”

“Three days? Anything can happen in three days. Furthermore, if you fail to capture them, will the Heavenly Pool Palace hold you accountable? Girl, do you think you can fool us? Long before you were born, we were already playing tricks like this…” the Water Staff Celestial Emperor said.

“Little Xu, you would’ve barely survived our attacks earlier if we didn’t hold back… There’s no reason for you to continue fighting us. If you continue to oppose us, it’d be considered as you committing treason against the Heavenly Pool Palace…” the Soaring Celestial Emperor said threateningly.

At this moment, You Feng Yu, the Palace Master of the Heavenly Pool Palace, called out, “Xu Ya Si! I know you’ve always been protective of your juniors, but you’ve already tried your best. The three seniors are kind enough to show you mercy. Otherwise, you would’ve lost your cultivation base even if you survive. You’d only suffer a loss if you continue to attack. Don’t forget that he’s not your only junior…”

Nevertheless, a hint of surprise flashed in the depths of You Feng Yu’s eyes when he looked at Xu Ya Si. He did not expect that Xu Lang’s daughter was now as strong as him. If he did not ask for help from his maternal grandfather, the Heavenly Emperor of the Boundless Heaven, and the Soaring Celestial Emperor, the Explosive Flame Celestial Emperor, and Water Staff Celestial Emperor did not come, Duan Ling Tian and Lian Qiu would have successfully escaped with Xu Ya Si’s help.

“Eldest Senior Sister!” Duan Ling Tian did not see what happened to Xu Ya Si earlier since he was engrossed in his fight with Lei Ying. However, based on Xu Ya Si’s current state, he could tell Xu Ya Si was in a disadvantageous position. Indeed, if the three titled Celestial Emperors did not hold back, she would have barely survived.

Duan Ling Tian looked at Xu Ya Si gratefully before he said resolutely, “Eldest Senior Sister, you don’t have to fight anymore. I’ll deal with them on my own.”

As soon as Duan Ling Tian finished speaking, he vanished before he reappeared above the Pine Willow Divine Tree. His eyes flashed fiercely as he looked at the three titled Celestial Emperors. He knew the only way he could escape now was to borrow all the power he could from the Five Divine Elements to defeat the three titled Celestial Emperors.

The three titled Celestial Emperors flew in different directions, surrounding Duan Ling Tian in a triangle formation.

Upon seeing this, Lian Qiu moved to stand behind Duan Ling Tian, standing back to back with Duan Ling Tian. His expression was grim as he looked at the three titled Celestial Emperors....

At this moment, apart from Xu Ya Si and Lei Ying, the other titled Celestial Emperors were all engrossed in their respective battles. Lei Ying was heavily injured so she could no longer fight while Xu Ya Si could no longer fight because her next move would be considered treasonous to the Heavenly Pool Palace and the Heavenly Emperor of the Boundless Heaven. She could not afford to provoke the Heavenly Emperor of the Boundless Heaven and the Heavenly Pool Palace since it would put her father and her juniors in danger. Therefore, she could only halt her attacks.

Xu Ya Si sighed inwardly as she looked at the purple figure in the distance. ‘Little Junior Brother, I’ve done my best…’

Meanwhile, the Water Staff Celestial Emperor sneered before she asked, “Boy, were you the one who released the prisoners in the Thousand Chains Prison?”

After that, the Explosive Flame Celestial Emperor added in a booming voice, “Boy, are you aware that Pei Yuan Ji was personally captured by the Heavenly Emperor of the Boundless Heaven?”

“How dare a puny Celestial Lord like you release Pei Yuan Ji and offend the Heavenly Emperor of the Boundless Heaven. Although you’re weak, I have to admit you’re really bold,” the Soaring Celestial Emperor said frostily.

“Enough with your nonsense,” Duan Ling Tian said emotionlessly, “Let’s fight.”

Duan Ling Tian’s eyes glinted coldly. He had decided to use all the power he could borrow from the Five Divine Elements in his Little World. Even Huang’er, the artifact soul of the Seven Orifices Exquisite Sword, was prepared to lend Duan Ling Tian her power.

“Boy, since you have a death wish, I’ll fulfill your wish!” the Explosive Flame Celestial Emperor, who had the shortest temper among the trio, said angrily. Fire surged around him in an instant before he stomped his feet and charged toward Duan Ling Tian.

Just as the Explosive Flame Celestial Emperor was about to collide with Duan Ling Tian…

Boom!

An invisible barrier suddenly appeared out of thin air, blocking the Explosive Flame Celestial Emperor. Flames surged high in the sky as he tried to destroy the barrier, but it was futile. The powerful barrier prevented him from advancing no matter how hard he struggled.

At the same time, upon seeing this, the Soaring Celestial Emperor exclaimed, “It’s the law of space!”

Following that, the Soaring Celestial Emperor looked around his surroundings as though he was looking for someone. “Who’s there? Why are you helping him?”

Swoosh! Swoosh! Swoosh! Swoosh! Swoosh!

The sound of wind howling rang in the air as five figures suddenly appeared out of thin air near Duan Ling Tian. They were a middle-aged man, a beautiful woman, and three young people.

The middle-aged man dressed in a dark gold long robe, who was clearly the leader of the group, was tall and muscular; he had a square jaw and bushy brows and a dignified air about him.

The beautiful woman was dressed in a flowy white robe. Her elegance and beauty made the surroundings pale in comparison.

Among the three young people, one of them was an aloof young man dressed in black robes, a white-clad young woman who looked pure, and a golden-clad young woman who looked rather delicate.

Meanwhile, as soon as the invincible barrier was erected before Duan Ling Tian, he had quickly stopped himself from attacking with the power of the Five Divine Elements. Although he knew someone had shown up to help him, he did not know who it was.

‘Is it someone from the Heavenly Palace of the Solitary Destructive Heaven? Did Senior Meng Chuan ask for reinforcements?’

In the next moment, Duan Ling Tian finally noticed the five people who had appeared near him. Since he had comprehended the law of space as well, he could tell that the group of people had appeared near him using the law of space’s Teleportation Profundity.
