Divine light also radiated from Ye Futian’s eyes. Ye Futian looked like he had undergone another metamorphosis.
Did he obtain Great Emperor Ziwei’s inheritance!? many practitioners wondered. After looking at the change in Ye Futian’s aura, it was highly likely that he had obtained the power of Great Emperor Ziwei’s inheritance.
From the ground, Ziwei Imperial Palace’s palace lord leaped into the air and walked toward Ye Futian. The cultivators in the area could clearly sense the murderous aura that he was emitting.
Clearly, the palace lord of Ziwei Imperial Palace wanted to take back the inheritance that he thought belonged to him.
He was the person in charge of the Ziwei Segmentum now. Even though he used to follow the will of Great Emperor Ziwei in the past, his faith in Ziwei had waned.
Now that Ye Futian obtained Ziwei’s inheritance, he wanted to kill Ye Futian, destroy his own belief, and seize the inheritance.
“Palace Lord!” the practitioners of Ziwei Imperial Palace shouted, in a tone that sounded like they did not want the palace lord of Ziwei Imperial Palace to do that. If the palace lord really went ahead and did that, their beliefs would be overlooked. Everything that they believed in the Ziwei Imperial Palace would be subverted.
Every practitioner in the Ziwei Segmentum embraced the belief of Great Emperor Ziwei.
However, how would the Ziwei Imperial Palace’s palace lord hear the pleas of their heart at that moment? His mood had completely changed; the palace lord’s mind was already made up.
A ray of frightening Starry Divine Light flew into the sky. It was gorgeous and eye-catching, like a shooting star, albeit from the bottom up. It flew across the sky’s horizon and went straight towards Ye Futian.
Ye Futian shifted his gaze towards that bright divine light. Then, as if an astounding God’s Might was contained within him, a vigorous and powerful voice came out of Ye Futian’s mouth, “Outrageous!”
The voice echoed in the starry sky and resonated with the entire sky. It made every practitioner shudder. Even the cultivators of the Ziwei Imperial Palace quaked intensely in their hearts. They stared straight at Ye Futian.
Was this Ye Futian’s voice?
At that moment, many of the practitioners felt a sense of deja vu. The voice sounded like the Great Emperor. It was as if it was a scolding from Great Emperor Ziwei.
The beautiful divine light stopped moving. The palace lord of Ziwei Imperial Palace was also stunned. He looked at Ye Futian. The expressions on his face kept changing. It seemed a little distorted as he opened his mouth and said, “Great Emperor.”
He felt the existence of the Great Emperor’s will.
Ye Futian lowered his head to look at Ziwei Imperial Palace’s palace lord and said, “I have inherited Great Emperor Ziwei’s will. From this day forth, I will represent Great Emperor Ziwei in leading the Ziwei Segment. You will all obey my commands.”
The voice was majestic and dignified. It sounded like Ye Futian but also the Great Emperor. Many could not tell if it was real or it was just an illusion.
Nonetheless, it still made the hearts of the cultivators tremble. Ye Futian said that he had inherited Great Emperor Ziwei’s will and that from today onwards, he would represent Great Emperor Ziwei and take charge of the Segmentum!
Ye Futian was going to take charge of the Ziwei Segmentum.
This… Was he going to directly replace the palace lord of Ziwei Imperial Palace?
If he took charge of the Ziwei Segmentum, what would happen?
Ye Futian was going to take charge of one of the most domineering factions in this world. It had an unparalleled influence.
However, the expression on the face of Ziwei Imperial Palace’s palace lord changed once more after he heard Ye Futian’s proclamation. In the beginning, he panicked and did not know what to do because he sensed the Great Emperor’s aura. However, after hearing Ye Futian’s proclamation, the anger in his heart seemed to have been reignited.
Did he want to take charge of the Ziwei Segmentum in the name of Great Emperor Ziwei?
Then, what was he?
He had been managing the Ziwei Segmentum in the name of Great Emperor Ziwei for many years, and he had long since become used to this status. He was the master of the Ziwei Segmentum.
However, at that moment, with just a simple proclamation, Great Emperor Ziwei handed over the Ziwei Segmentum to this heir?
What did his years of service count for?
As he thought of that, a frightening surge of energy emanated from the body of Ziwei Imperial Palace’s palace lord. In the vast and boundless starry dimension, starry divine lights lit up. It looked as though countless starry divine swords had appeared. They then pointed towards Ye Futian.
Even if the Great Emperor’s will were with him, the palace lord would still kill Ye Futian.
On this day, the palace lord would destroy the existence that he worshiped and had dedicated countless years to.
Boom! His body, along with that frightening energy, charged into the sky and towards Ye Futian’s position. The cultivators of the Ziwei Imperial Palace were speechless when they saw this happen. In the end, they had still reached this stage after all.
Everything would change.
Either their palace lord would die, or Ye Futian would be killed and the Great Emperor’s will would be destroyed along with him. No matter what happened, they never could have imagined an ending like this. Even though the mystery of the starry dimension was resolved, they were faced with such a cruel situation. If they had known before, they would have never tried to solve the mystery of the starry dimension and decipher the inheritance that the Great Emperor left behind.
However, it was already too late. They could only watch as things unfold before them – to witness the imperial palace lord charge at Ye Futian to kill him.
Not only the practitioners of Ziwei Imperial Palace were watching. The other cultivators in the dimension were also watching. Some of the factions that held grudges against Ye Futian had already left quietly. Ye Futian’s proclamation earlier instilled a sense of fear in them. It was as if Ye Futian had borrowed from Great Emperor Ziwei’s will to speak. If that were really the case, Ye Futian might become incredibly scary as he would be able to fight with the Great Emperor’s strength.
The frightening energy seemed to have reached Ye Futian’s body. However, at that moment, every star in the sky seemed to be moving. Then, the countless stars in the vast and boundless sky began to emanate a fearsome divine light all at the same time. The next moment, those divine lights merged and transformed into a Heaven-slaying Divine Sword.
The Heaven-slaying Divine Sword descended directly from above, and in an instant, every single starry divine sword charging towards Ye Futian had been destroyed.
As the Heaven-slaying Divine Sword drew closer towards the Ziwei Imperial Palace’s lord, the palace lord let out a powerful roar. His body was then surrounded by a gigantic star that looked like a layer of formidable defense. It was an absolute Starry Domain. It would not be destroyed.
Rumble! A shocking rumbling sound rang in the air. The sky trembled as the hearts of the practitioners beat rapidly. They could feel the entire Starry World shaking intensely. The stars seemed to be moving. The stars, real stars, in the sky had actually moved. They flew towards the palace lord of Ziwei Imperial Palace in the starry sky.
Every cultivator present was utterly stunned by the scene in front of them. Stars in the sky had actually fallen from the sky and surrounded Ye Futian. Those were real stars. They were enormous, and as they descended, they completely covered the sky. These flew towards the palace lord of Ziwei Imperial Palace.
Bang! A loud bang. The palace lord of Ziwei Imperial Palace’s star defense was destroyed. The fearsome divine lights continued to fly towards him. The palace lord of Ziwei Imperial Palace looked exceptionally small at that moment. Between the stars and the divine sword, he had no way to escape.
“Bang, bang, bang!” Sounds of crashes rang in the air simultaneously. A horrible scene of destruction was left in the sky. It looked like heaven and earth had crumbled. Multiple stars were crumbling into pieces. These stars had turned into giant boulders as well as dust. The giant boulders fell from the sky as if they were falling meteorites.
The cultivators in the lower part of the sky stood still. Giant boulders were falling towards them, but their Powers of the Great Path could destroy those boulders. It looked like they were standing in the middle of a crumbling world. However, no one paid any attention to that. Their gazes were focused on the sky. The Ziwei Imperial Palace’s palace lord still stood there. An extremely beautiful ray of divine light pierced his body. However, despite this, he did not immediately dissipate.
He still held his staff firmly in his hand. His blood-red eyes looked up into the sky, staring at Ye Futian’s figure. He naturally knew that this was not Ye Futian’s doing; the Great Emperor’s will was still there.
Then, the body of the palace lord of Ziwei Imperial Palace began to blur. He suddenly smiled. It was an eerie-looking smile, which was also tinged with a sense of sadness.
“Great Emperor, just what am I…?” It seemed like he was asking a rhetorical question, though it also looked like it was a question directed at Great Emperor Ziwei. Just what was he?
He did not understand. He only felt that his life was sad.
No one responded. It was impossible to respond. Amidst that sad smile, the spiritual soul of the palace lord of Ziwei Imperial Palace broke into pieces before dissipating into nothingness.
A voice filled the sky. It was the voice of the palace lord of Ziwei Imperial Palace. While he had died, he did not go willingly. He left his hatred behind. Under the starry sky, the cultivators present could feel the residual hatred that he left behind scattered in the air.
He hated. Of course, he hated.
The practitioners in the sky were speechless. He was an incredibly powerful being, a God-defying existence who had gone through the divine tribulation twice. However, just like that, he died. Moreover, he died with an endless amount of hate. It was certainly a loss.
How unfortunate! they thought. However, the ending was decided as soon as the palace lord moved against Ye Futian. It could not be changed. The Great Emperor’s will, even though just a strand, was still an existence that could not be contended with.
Many people also felt a sense of sadness. The palace lord of Ziwei Imperial Palace’s last question echoed in their minds.
Great Emperor, just what am I?!
Yes! What was he?
Perhaps, in the eyes of the Great Emperor, mortals were like ants. In front of his heir, the palace lord of Ziwei Imperial Palace was, naturally, just like an ant. He was directly stepped on and killed. There was absolutely no nostalgia.
They looked into the sky, at Ye Futian—Great Emperor Ziwei’s heir.
It seemed like the Great Emperor’s strand of will had assimilated with Ye Futian. However, no one really knew what the actual details were. Only Ye Futian himself knew.
In truth, when Ye Futian saw the death of Ziwei Imperial Palace’s palace lord, he also experienced slight emotional fluctuations. After all, he was an incredibly powerful cultivator. If he were to guide and support Ye Futian, what kind of situation would they be in?
Unfortunately, the hatred harbored by the lord of this imperial palace towards him was just too strong. With his faith already collapsed, the palace lord wanted to kill Ye Futian, even if it meant becoming an enemy of Great Emperor Ziwei’s will. When that happened, it was already decided that there was no going back. Ye Futian’s only choice was to kill him. An enemy like that was just too dangerous.
Everything was finally over. Ye Futian succeeded in controlling the power he inherited from Great Emperor Ziwei. Moreover, just as he expected, Great Emperor Ziwei also left room for maneuver and helped him resolve future issues. Under the sky in the starry dimension, no one would be able to touch him.
Great Emperor Ziwei’s will was no longer with Ye Futian in his body. Instead, it was in the stars in the sky. The revolution of the power of the stars meant the existence of the Great Emperor’s will.
As for Ye Futian, his spiritual soul had already assimilated into the stars in the sky. He had become one with the Great Emperor’s will. As such, as long as he was under the sky, he was an invincible being!
