Chapter 1454 All-out War
Shengzu Heaven, the Sacred Mountain.
A grand unbroken mountain range rose from the ground like giant dragons stretching their enormous bodies. Their mighty stone dragon heads, however, were lowered as if bowing towards the highest point of the mountain range.
Amidst the swirling mists, one would see the silhouette of a giant palace that seemed to border on the line between reality and illusion, creating an exceptionally mysterious sight.
Seven ancient stone statues stood in the palace, two of them dull and covered in cracks as if they had lost their life force.
Five figures were seated on the heads of the other five stone statues. There were no Genesis Qi undulations around them, but the air constantly quivered nearby despite their inactivity, as if wailing in fear.
The vast Genesis Qi above the Sacred Mountain had turned into a sky of stars that moved with each breath of Genesis Qi the five figures took.
They were the five prime saints of the Sacred Race.
As for prime saint Hei Zhao and prime saint Mo Jie, they died in Cangxuan Heaven some time ago.
The palace was usually silent all-year-round, the five prime sovereign seemingly in such deep slumber that even their breathing had completely disappeared. If not for the faint and terrifying pressure that occasionally escaped from their bodies, one would believe that they were merely corpses.
The silence was suddenly broken today. Strands of light flickered on the five prime saints’ bodies and their clothes began to stir as their tightly shut eyes slowly opened.
The entire s.p.a.ce began to crumble in an instant.
“The third G.o.d has sealed herself and her divinity is now slowly awakening.” Prime saint Tai Mi’s raspy voice rang out across the palace.
“It seems that the G.o.d Annihilation Curse Poison was too powerful and has instead forced the third G.o.d to quicken her awakening.”
Prime saint Nan Ming frowned and said, “We’ve lost two prime saints for this result. Why does it feel that we’ve lost out in this exchange?”
“Nan Ming, you’re too concerned over our present losses. Our G.o.d’s foresight is far beyond our imagination and we cannot possibly hope to understand his decisions.” The tall and bulky t.i.tan-like prime saint Tian Zhan’s voice rumbled like thunder, shaking the very heavens itself.
Prime saint Nan Ming nodded and did not say anything else.
Prime saint Tai Mi also nodded as he chuckled and said, “Since the third G.o.d has sealed herself, we no longer face as huge a threat as before. Hence, I propose we start a new plan to welcome our G.o.d when he awakens. Otherwise, those all-heaven creatures will feel that we are a peace-loving race.”
“Tai Mi, what do you have in mind? The all-heaven is currently covered by the Chaos Origin Sacred Killer Array, and even though we have an absolute advantage in terms of power, charging in without a plan will still cause us to sustain painful losses.” The speaker wielded a copper cauldron in which thunder boomed without end. He was called prime saint Zhang Lei.
“Agreed, the Chaos Origin Sacred Killer Array is not to be trifled with. Although the Sacred Race does not fear death, the tactic of wasting away our lives for nothing is too beneath us.” Another deep voice sounded. The voice was extremely peculiar and if one listened closely, one would hear millions of violent beast roars contained within.
It was prime saint Tian Shou.
The other prime saints nodded in agreement.
Prime saint Tai Mi smiled gently and said, “The Chaos Origin Sacred Killer Array that covers the all-heaven is indeed a very problematic spikey turtle sh.e.l.l. However, it is not flawless.
“I received a holy order from our G.o.d some time ago. He revealed a path to me which I have continuously pondered over for the past year and ultimately managed to garner some insight.”
“Oh?” The other prime saints were surprised by these words as slight envy appeared in their eyes. They were naturally envious of prime saint Tai Mi for receiving a divine order from their G.o.d.
Although it seemed that the prime saints were of equal status, the sacred G.o.d clearly favored Tai Mi a little more.
Those that could become prime saints were naturally no ordinary individuals. Hence, they quickly adjusted their att.i.tudes before looking towards Tai Mi. They wanted to know what kind of strategy he had against the Chaos Origin Sacred Killer Array.
The great array was something that even prime saints like themselves were extremely wary of. Ever since the world-ending war back then, the array had been the main reason why the Sacred Race could no longer properly threaten the all-heaven. Otherwise, given the Sacred Race’s overwhelming advantage in power, they could have invaded the all-heaven long ago and need not think of ways to sneak in like they were doing now. It felt frustratingly troublesome and restrictive for them.
“The Chaos Origin Sacred Killer Array is indeed very problematic and it will not be wise for us to brute force it. Hence, we need to take a more roundabout route and circ.u.mvent the array.” Tai Mi smiled faintly. Soon after, he raised his hand and a black door appeared on his palm. The black stone door was pure darkness and no one knew where it connected to.
“Besides the main nine heavens that the Tianyuan World had been divided into, there also exists countless subs.p.a.ces.These domains are like wormholes that connect the nine heavens.”
One of the prime saints frowned and said, “You intend to enter the all-heaven via these subs.p.a.ces? But they are not stable and are at risk of collapsing at any time. It will be very troublesome for even Saint experts if they are caught in the collapse and cast into the void.”
Prime saint Tai Mi smiled faintly and said, “Indeed. However, this Sacred Heaven Door can help us identify the more stable subs.p.a.ces. Once we enter, we can stabilize the subs.p.a.ce and use it as a transition point into the next subs.p.a.ce. In this manner, we will definitely be able to approach the all-heaven and ultimately enter their territory.”
The other four prime saints looked at each other before someone said, “If we do manage to approach the all-heaven, their prime sovereigns will naturally sense our presence.”
Prime saint Tai Mi let out a carefree chuckle. “So what? We’re there to start a war, not tour the place. If they discover us, they will only have two options. First, to solidify their position and defend. However, when our Sacred Race finally manages to stabilize all the subs.p.a.ce pa.s.sages, we will be able to invade the all-heaven and fight on their turf.”
“Second, they could opt to take the initiative instead and also enter the subs.p.a.ces to stop us. However, that will also start the war and we will definitely be able to crush them with our superior forces.
“No matter how many of them come, we just have to slaughter them all.
“Our G.o.d will surely be happy if he awakens to us presenting him with offerings of countless Saint experts’ essence blood and souls.”
Smiles appeared on the other four prime saints’ faces as they listened, smiles that were filled with chilling killing intent. The smell of blood even began to permeate the palace.
Although their previous attack on Cangxuan Heaven had caused them to lose two prime saints, the Sacred Race still had more than enough power to steamroll over the all-heaven. Hence, they were not worried about a war.
“I second the notion.”
Four prime saints nodded, endorsing prime saint Tai Mi’s plan.
The smile on prime saint Tai Mi’s face grew even wider as his gentle voice sounded, “Then it’s decided…next, it’s time for war.”
