War Sovereign Soaring The Heavens

Chapter 3422: It’s Just a Joke

The transportation site in the Heavenly Palace of the Floating Heaven was in ruins. Even the stone platform that held the Transportation Formation had been destroyed, rendering the Formation useless.

High up in the sky, fiery-red flames surged, entangled with a green tornado.

“What did you say?!” The Almighty Wind Celestial Emperor exclaimed in shock as he hastily blocked Elder Huo’s attack.

‘The Young Master of the Heavenly Palace of the Solitary Destructive Heaven?’ An ominous feeling rose in the Almighty Wind Celestial Emperor’s heart immediately. However, since when did the Heavenly Palace of the Solitary Destructive Heaven have a Young Master? From what he knew, the Heavenly Emperor of the Solitary Destructive Heaven, Feng Qing Yang, only had a few nominal disciples. Although Feng Qing Yang’s nominal disciples were extraordinary talents who had made their marks on the Nine Serenities Battlefield, none of them could be considered the Young Master of the Heavenly Palace of Solitary Destructive Heaven. The Young Master of the Solitary Destructive Heaven could only be Feng Qing Yang’s son or true disciple.

Although the Almighty Wind Celestial Emperor was a true disciple of the Heavenly Emperor of the Floating Heaven, he was only one of three true disciples. His Eldest Senior Brother was the son of the Heavenly Emperor of the Floating Island so he was, naturally, not qualified to bear the title of the Young Master of the Heavenly Palace of the Floating Island.

“Is there something wrong with your hearing?” Elder Huo scoffed. “I said I’d like to see how the Heavenly Palace of the Floating Heaven is going to answer to the Heavenly Palace of the Solitary Destructive Heaven!”

“Can you even prove you’re a member of the Heavenly Palace of Solitary Destructive Heaven?” the Almighty Wind Celestial Emperor solemnly asked.

“Who are you for me to have to prove myself to you?” Elder Huo said derisively.

“If you have no proof to back up your claims, it only means you’re an impostor and lying about the Heavenly Palace of the Solitary Destructive Heaven. Based on what I know, the Heavenly Palace of the Solitary Destructive Heaven doesn’t have a Young Master,” the Almighty Wind Celestial Emperor said coldly. Despite his words, he felt rather uneasy and fearful. If the old man was telling the truth and Duan Ling Tian was indeed the Young Master of the Heavenly Palace of the Solitary Destructive Heaven, he would be in deep trouble. It would be impossible for him to get away with his actions today even if his master, the Heavenly Emperor of the Floating Heaven, wanted to protect him. Feng Qing Yang was known to be incredibly protective of the members of the Heavenly Palace of the Solitary Destructive Heaven.

In the past, when Feng Qing Yang’s subordinate, Meng Luo, the Heavenly Savage Celestial Emperor, unintentionally provoked a Heavenly Emperor and was almost killed even after he apologized for his offense, Feng Qing Yang personally killed that Heavenly Emperor to avenge Meng Luo.

Normally, the Heavenly Emperors would never kill their peers unless it was absolutely necessary since it would be troublesome and they had their reputations to maintain. However, Feng Qing Yang did not care about such things. At that time, Feng Qing Yang even boldly declared that no one was allowed to lay their hands on his people.

Since that incident, Feng Qing Yang was known throughout the Devata Realms for his protectiveness. For this reason, nobody would even dare to lay a finger on an ordinary titled Celestial Emperors from the Heavenly Palace of the Solitary Destructive Heaven unless it was necessary.

“Impostor? Lying?” Elder Huo laughed. Then, he said disdainfully, “Is there anybody who’s bold enough to pretend to be a member of the Heavenly Palace of the Solitary Destructive Heaven? Let’s not talk about the others; do you have the guts to pretend to be a member of the Heavenly Palace of the Solitary Destructive Heaven?”

The Almighty Wind Celestial Emperor’s expression turned grim when he heard Elder Huo’s words. Indeed, there were not many people bold enough to pretend to be a member of the Heavenly Palace of the Solitary Destructive Heaven. Feng Qing Yang was not an ordinary Heavenly Emperor, after all. With Feng Qing Yang’s current strength, there were only a few forces in all Devata Realms who were capable of standing up to Feng Qing Yang. Moreover, if Feng Qing Yang wanted to kill someone, there would be no lack of people volunteering to help him in order to curry favor with him.

Meanwhile, Kong You Yi’s current expression was one of disbelief when he saw the mocking smile on Duan Ling Tian’s face. ‘The Young Master of the Heavenly Palace of the Solitary Destructive Heaven? Impossible! How’s this possible?’

Terrified, Kong You Yi instantly sent a message to his father, the Almighty Wind Celestial Emperor. “Father, what should we do now?”

“What else can we do? Run!” the Almighty Wind Celestial Emperor said to his useless son, “This is all your fault, brat!”

“Run?” Kong You Yi was stunned. “Father, why should we run when we aren’t even sure if they’re really from the Heavenly Palace of the Solitary Destructive Heaven?”

“Do you think we’ll have a chance to run once the matter is confirmed?” the Almighty Wind Celestial Emperor replied. At this time, he began to feel regretful. He was filled with self-pity as he thought about how he, the Almighty Wind Celestial Emperor of the Heavenly Palace of Floating Heaven and the second true disciple of the Heavenly Emperor of the Floating Heaven, ended up in such a state.

“Let’s leave first! If they aren’t members of the Heavenly Palace of the Solitary Destructive Heaven, it won’t be too late for us to return. If they’re really members of the Heavenly Palace of the Solitary Destructive Heaven, we’ll be able to escape the consequences. When things subside, perhaps, we’ll have a chance to return to the Heavenly Palace of the Floating Heaven.” The Almighty Wind Celestial Emperor was only trying to placate his son. In fact, he knew that if Duan Ling Tian was really the Young Master of the Heavenly Palace of the Solitary Destructive Heaven, it would be impossible for them to return to the Heavenly Palace of the Floating Heaven for the rest of their lives. Even if the Heavenly Emperor of the Solitary Destructive Heaven did not hunt them down, it was impossible for the Heavenly Emperor of the Floating Heaven to accept them again in fear of offending the Heavenly Emperor of the Solitary Destructive Heaven!

Many years ago, his master was evenly matched with Feng Qing Yang. Moreover, in terms of innate talent, his master was inferior to Feng Qing Yang. Now that so many years had passed, Feng Qing Yang was undoubtedly stronger than his master now. Apart from that, he had also heard from his master that Feng Qing Yang seemed to have attained godhood. With all these factors, he was certain his master would not offend Feng Qing Yang.

Meanwhile, the members of the Heavenly Palace of the Floating Heaven who had gathered at the transportation site discussed among themselves as they watched the battle before them.

“It’s the Almighty Wind Celestial Emperor!”

“Who’s that? He’s stronger than the Almighty Wind Celestial Emperor. If it weren’t for the law of wind that grants him speed, the Almighty Wind Celestial Emperor would have been defeated by now.”...

“Kong You Yi is here as well!”

“Who’s that in front of Kong You Yi? Is he the Young Master of the Heavenly Palace of the Solitary Destructive Heaven?”

At this moment, a woman with a curvaceous body landed among the crowd and called out, “Second Senior Brother!”

The crowd’s attention shifted to her immediately.

“The Purple Spike Celestial Emperor is here!”

“Her expression is quite bad…”

“Since the Purple Spike Celestial Emperor is here, they should be able to defeat the red-clad old man if they join forces.”

The crowd thought the Purple Spike Celestial Emperor had come to help the Almighty Wind Celestial Emperor so they were shocked by what happened next.

“Second Senior Brother, my disciple’s husband, Duan Ling Tian, is indeed the only true disciple of Heavenly Emperor Feng Qing Yang of the Solitary Destructive Heaven. Otherwise, I wouldn’t have let Li Fei leave with him,” the Purple Spike Celestial Emperor looked at the Almighty Wind Celestial Emperor said, confirming Duan Ling Tian and Elder Huo’s identities, “As for your opponent, he’s Elder Huo, the Golden Crow Celestial Emperor from the Heavenly Palace of the Solitary Destructive Heaven. He’s only second to Meng Luo, the Heavenly Savage Celestial Emperor, in the Heavenly Palace of the Solitary Destructive Heaven!”

The Heavenly Savage Celestial Emperor, Meng Luo, was the strongest titled Celestial Emperor under Feng Qing Yang. After Feng Qing Yang returned from the Asura Hell, one of the seven deadliest places in the Devata Realms, Meng Luo had risen to fame as well. Elder Huo was lesser known compared to Meng Luo.

The members of the Heavenly Palace of the Floating Heaven were shocked by this revelation. They looked at the Almighty Wind Celestial Emperor in confusion, wondering why he wanted to kill the Young Master of the Heavenly Palace of the Solitary Destructive Heaven.

“So it’s true! That young man is the Young Master of the Heavenly Palace of the Solitary Destructive Heaven!”

“Heavens! The Heavenly Emperor of the Solitary Destructive Heaven, Lord Feng Qing Yang, has accepted a true disciple? Moreover, he’s also the husband of the Purple Spike Celestial Emperor’s disciple?”

“The Almighty Wind Celestial Emperor wants to kill someone with such an identity?”

“Once our Lord Heavenly Emperor finds out about this matter, it’s likely he won’t forgive the Almighty Wind Celestial Emperor, right?”

At the same time, hints of fear and despair filled Kong You Yi’s eyes when he heard the Purple Spike Celestial Emperor’s words.

Even the Almighty Wind Celestial Emperor shuddered in fear as he cursed inwardly, ‘This b*tch! So you’ve known Duan Ling Tian’s identity from the beginning! Why didn’t you warn me?!’

Following that, the Almighty Wind Celestial Emperor asked the Purple Spike Celestial Emperor through Voice Transmission, “Third Junior Sister, when I went to look for you two years ago, you already knew about Duan Ling Tian’s identity?”

“Yes,” the Purple Spike Celestial Emperor replied.

A hint of anger could be heard in the Almighty Wind Celestial Emperor’s voice as he asked, “Why didn’t you tell me about it?”

“Since the matter had been resolved at that time, I didn’t think there was a need to reveal his identity,” the Purple Spike Celestial Emperor replied.

The Almighty Wind Celestial Emperor fumed in anger when he heard the Purple Spike Celestial Emperor’s reply. Subsequently, he took a deep breath before he hurriedly stepped aside. Then, he forced a cheerful smile on his face before he said to Elder Huo, “Elder Huo, this is a misunderstanding. My unfilial son and I were just joking with you and your Young Master…”
