In Donghua Palace, when the Millet Emperor saw the scene below, he looked over at Emperor Yan of Great Yan Ancient Royal Family, as well as Ling Yunzi—the Lingxiao Palace Lord. He asked, “Did the two of you plan this?”
“We have been sitting here in Donghua Palace all this while. What could we have discussed?” Ling Yunzi replied. His tone carried an air of indifference.
“Is that so?” the Millet Emperor said as he swept a gaze over the other party. Full of mistrust, he said, “Back on Turtle Deity Island, the members of the Yan Kingdom came into conflict with the disciples of the Wangshen Watchtower. It seems that the disciples of Lingxiao Palace threw coal onto the fire. Could it be due to Ling He holding a grudge for losing to Ye Futian when comprehending the teachings left by Thunder Punishing Skylord on the cliff face? Or is it because Lingxiao Palace Lord is unsatisfied with me? Or might it be due to both of these reasons?”
Before this, the Millet Emperor was suspicious of Supreme Deity Donglai’s death. Hence, he had brought his members over to participate in the Donghua Banquet and observe the attitude of Lingxiao Palace. As expected, Lingxiao Palace had secretly joined forces with the Great Yan Ancient Royal Family.
Right then, the Millet Emperor felt a bad premonition.
“You can choose to interpret it as you wish,” Ling Yunzi replied nonchalantly. “However, today is the Donghua Banquet. Chief has already said that during the Donghua Banquet, prominent figures will challenge each other here. Surely the Millet Emperor will not spoil the fun for everyone, right?”
The other giant figures did not say anything. They merely sat there quietly and watched. It was inappropriate for the other forces to intervene in the grudge between Wangshen Watchtower and the Yan Kingdom, as well as Lingxiao Palace.
“If the Millet Emperor feels that it is inappropriate, there is nothing stopping you from walking away from the challenge,” Chief Ning said to the Millet Emperor.
“Master, we came to participate in the Donghua Banquet to challenge each other and seek the Way. We have no reason to reject their challenge,” Li Changsheng said as he raised his head and looked at the Millet Emperor. Even if they lost on the Law Battle Platform, it would be an experience. How could they let the Millet Emperor cower from his enemies?
As cultivators of Wangshen Watchtower, this was their burden to bear.
Even if they lost, they still had to fight.
“That’s right. Let’s continue,” said Zong Chan and the other Renhuangs as they looked up at the Millet Emperor in Donghua Palace. There was absolutely no reason for Millet Emperor to avoid this battle. If that happened, the Millet Emperor would be the first person to go against the rule of the Donghua Banquet. Wouldn’t that embarrass him before the various top forces?
As cultivators of Wangshen Watchtower, they did not need to withdraw.
The Millet Emperor looked at the members below and then nodded his head and said, “Be careful.”
He did not say anymore. Although both forces were targeting them, for the cultivators of Wangshen Watchtower, this was also a trial. The other party did not dare to kill under any circumstances. This was the Donghua Banquet; no one dared to defy this rule.
Their second match was against an extraordinary figure from Lingxiao Palace, who was a lower-level Renhuang. He challenged a cultivator from Wangshen Watchtower. The result was even more tragic than the first battle. It was a one-sided massacre. The Renhuang from Wangshen Watchtower was suppressed from the beginning to end. It could even be considered a slaughter. The other party also intentionally did not rush to defeat their opponent, instead possessing a somewhat playful attitude. He tortured the Renhuang from the Watchtower before dealing a vicious blow at the end. This caused the expressions of the other cultivators of Wangshen Watchtower to turn extremely ugly.
Before their battle had ended, Ye Futian had already stood up. However, up above, Ling Yunzi said, “The Law Battles are carried out so that the various disciples can have the opportunity to experience each other’s abilities. There is no need for one person to keep fighting. Even if this is a battle between two forces, each round, different cultivators from both sides should come out to clash against one another. Everyone has witnessed Ye Liunian’s ability. If he battles repeatedly, doesn’t that make it seem as though the other cultivators from Wangshen Watchtower are incompetent?”
Emperor Xi said, “If Great Yan Ancient Royal Family and Lingxiao Palace are targeting Wangshen Watchtower, the number of cultivators from these two forces will far outnumber that of Wangshen Watchtower. The two forces can choose more incredible figures from their midst. Isn’t that somewhat inappropriate?”
He continued with a smile, “Of course, I am just casually saying this. How do Chief and the rest of you feel about this?”
“What Teacher says is reasonable. Today was to be the showdown between the various forces. However, on Turtle Deity Island, these three parties came into conflict with one another. There is no issue in them utilizing the Donghua Banquet to battle it out. However, it is still impossible to make it absolutely fair,” Thunder Punishing Skylord added with a smile. Before the other cultivators, a giant figure such as Thunder Punishing Skylord still referred to Emperor Xi as his teacher. It was clear that he still respected Emperor Xi.
“Both of you are right. What do you all think?” Chief Ning asked as he looked at the rest of them.
“This is a dilemma. Chief, you should make the decision,” the Overlord of Jian Clan Ancient Royal Family said with a smile. Right now, as spectators, they naturally did not want to get involved in this feud. For Emperor Xi and Thunder Punishing Skylord to be willing to speak up on Ye Futian’s behalf was probably because they had a good impression of Ye Futian. They thought highly of this junior figure; hence, they would naturally lean more towards the Wangshen Watchtower’s side.
In reality, it was indeed unfair for the two forces to target Wangshen Watchtower.
“If that is the case, there is no need for both sides to choose people of the same level. We can carry out a group Law Battle directly,” Ye Futian said from below. “That way, we do not need to have individual Law Battles one after another.”
If he was in a group battle, he was confident in dealing with middle-level Renhuangs. After all, aside from him, he also had a few powerful members. Zi Feng’s ability was also sufficient for her to stand alone. At the very least, she would not have a problem holding off Yan Dongyang for some time.
The crowd looked at Ye Futian. This fellow was actually planning to proceed to the group battle?
“Since we are having a group battle, why don’t we move onto the next stage? Lest the other forces cannot participate and can only watch these three forces fight,” a cultivator from the Nanhua Clan said with a smile.
The next stage naturally referred to the arrangement after the Law Battles. The crowd clearly understood this.
Although the Domain Chief’s Manor chose some cultivators during this stage, the number of cultivators recruited was far from their target. The cultivators still needed to be tested on a large-scale. The various forces could also participate in this.
Chief Ning looked at the other party and then laughed and asked, “Aside from the Yan Kingdom and Wangshen Watchtower, does anyone else wish to challenge each other and seek the Path individually?”
“Since it has already been decided, just move on,” a cultivator from the Desolate God Palace also said. Their interest in individual Law Battles had diminished.
“I have no objections,” stated Sword Goddess of Divine Palace of Fluttering Snow. The others agreed one after another. When Chief Ning saw this scene, he nodded his head and said, “If that is so, then we will end it here.”
As he said this, he glanced around at the crowd and continued, “When the Donghua Banquet began, I said that its purpose was to first have a drink with old friends. The second reason was to see the prominent figures of the Donghua Domain. The third reason is that Domain Chief’s Manor is recruiting new blood. Now that the Donghua Banquet has progressed to this stage, next, there will be a chance for everyone here to display their abilities. Those who perform outstandingly, if they are willing, may join Domain Chief’s Manor to cultivate.”
The Renhuangs in the Nine Heavens all lifted their heads and looked at Chief Ning. Next, there was an opportunity that everyone could have. As for whether or not they managed to seize it, it was up to the individual.
