Chapter 186: The Fantian Sovereign Sword
Yong Le proclaimed coldly as he clapped his silver fan, “Very good! Then Yi Ping will be the first challenger from his group and the Sovereign Thunder Heavenly King will be the first challenge from our group!”
The Sovereign Thunder Heavenly King hummed coldly at Yi Ping as he said simply, “I am the Sovereign Thunder Heavenly King. You can make the first move!”
Alice quickly warned Yi Ping, “Yi Ping, be careful!”
While warning Yi Ping gently, she was at the same time looking despising at Yong Le!
It was because Alice loathed the dark practitioners. Moreover judging from the unearthly aura that she had observed from him, she had already gathered that he had eaten the heart of a superior Heavenly King!
There were altogether thirty-three Heavenly Kings and just one third of the Heavenly Kings were the superior Heavenly King. The three Heavenly Kings that they had seen today were actually the lesser Heavenly Kings but that did not made them any less dangerous than a superior Heavenly King!
Meanwhile Yi Ping had nodded gently to Alice as he eyed the Sovereign Thunder Heavenly King, “I am Yi Ping. In that case I shall make the first move!”
He had leapt with a startling speed forward!
Lie Qing, Lele, Asura and all the members of Yi Ping’s group were all looking anxiously at him as they all whispered, “Be careful Yi Ping…Ping’Er be wary…”
Quite a number of practitioners were also getting worried for Yi Ping as well. They had never seen someone like him before and his strong sense of righteous air instantly caused him to be likeable to the good and detestable to the evildoers!
The Sovereign Thunder Heavenly King laughed aloud as he walked unhurriedly to the front as he faced Yi Ping!
Everyone had holding their breath in anxious anticipation!
Yi Ping said aloud, “Remember! If you lose, you must keep the part of your promise to release your hold on them and…”
He emphasized, “…let them go unscathed!”
It was because he had already witnessed the freewheeling and manipulating tactics of his opponents too many times. He had to be sure and he had to make sure that they had little room to change their minds!
The Sovereign Thunder Heavenly King hummed coldly, “Naturally.”
Yi Ping looked coldly at Yong Le as he asked, “Really?”
Yong Le smiled coldly, “Naturally. This, you don’t have to worry. Heavens and Earth are my witnesses!”
Yi Ping hummed coldly as he immediately displayed a readied stance as he eyed the Sovereign Thunder Heavenly King with caution before he said, “I am going to attack soon!”
The Sovereign Thunder Heavenly King laughed it off, “Anytime, anytime…”
He had virtually shrugged off Yi Ping as a challenger!
But all of a sudden when Yi Ping had raised his sword to him in a startling flash, the Sovereign Thunder Heavenly King was startled by his explosive speed and martial power!
All of a sudden the dueling vicinity had suddenly burst into heated martial windforces as Yi Ping displayed the Asper Divinity while the Sovereign Thunder Heavenly King had also raised his martial force as they clashed furiously and continuously!
Yi Ping was not surprised that the martial force of the Sovereign Thunder Heavenly King was able to withstand the full blunt of his attacks. He was more surprised that he was still able to hold his ground against him!
The Sovereign Thunder Heavenly King blurted out, “What the…”
It was because he was caught by the ferocity of Yi Ping’s attacks and that when he had retaliated, this Yi Ping was still able to hold his ground against him!
He gave a loud martial shout as his left hand burst forth with a shimmering white glow and in the next instant he was already upon Yi Ping!
Yi Ping raised his left hand with his Asper Horizon and a thunderous impact exploded immediately!
Yi Ping was slightly shaken by the titanic martial power of the Sovereign Thunder Heavenly King and he was forced to take two steps back!
The Sovereign Thunder Heavenly King was furious. It was because Yi Ping had taken the full blunt of his Divine Golden Thunder and had shown no sign of being affected by it!
Yi Ping thought to himself, “I…can do it…Lord Judas, Old Man Xuantian and Yun Dingzhong are all stronger than him…”
He was worried that their martial level difference would be too vast and he may not be able to withstand his opponent. But when he found out that he could at least par with the Sovereign Thunder Heavenly King, his confidence level was given a boost!
The Sovereign Thunder Heavenly King was startled by the profound strength of Yi Ping’s martial power as he thought silently, “This martial strength…is it the Martial Emperor Unifying Force?”
The Sovereign Thunder Heavenly King had failed to sense the Pangu Intricate Energy that was within Yi Ping because by now, it had completely merged into all his vital energies channels due to the forced emerging of the Thousand Memories Swords and the Golden Invincible Force!
Just as the Sovereign Thunder Heavenly King had mustered his martial power to another new level as his forehead began to glow brilliantly, Yi Ping had split the Celestial Alice into two as he made dozens of whirling forward strikes!
The Sovereign Thunder Heavenly King was startled but he retained his composure as he flurried dozens of powerful burst of explosive martial force in retaliation!
As they flashed around each other as they maneuvered with their rapid strokes, the entire vicinity was also enveloped with their martial shockwaves!
Everyone was gasping as they took sudden steps back to avoid the dangerous speeding pebbles that were speeding throughout the vicinity!
Lingfeng was gasping excitingly, “Ping’Er, he is on par with the Sovereign Thunder Sovereign Heavenly King!”
Lele was clasping Lie Qing’s hands anxiously and she was covering her mouth while at the same time she was forcing herself to watch this dreadful duel!
Yunzi said quietly to the rest of the maidens as she flashed her sword with deadly precision as she parried the speeding projectiles aside, “Ping’Er will surely be alright and he will surely be able to overcome his adversary…”
Isa was trembling because his opponent was a Heavenly King, how could she not be worried?!
All of a sudden, her thoughts were interrupted by the great shout of the Sovereign Thunder Heavenly King, “You must surely be mistaken if you think that my Divine Golden Thunder is my only attack stance!”
He had all of a sudden increased his martial power as a sparking electric field seemed to be enveloping around him!
All of a sudden the head of Yi Ping’s forehead began to glow a shimmering golden as he continued to increase his martial prowess!
The Sovereign Thunder Heavenly King gasped all of a sudden, “The Seventh Cosmos Positioning?! What, you have actually elevated to the seventh immortal stage?!”
All of a sudden he was sent flying backward and slamming onto the ground with a cracking thunderous impact as Yi Ping slashed and broken through to his golden body!
The Sovereign Thunder Heavenly King coughed out blood as he got up panicky in shock, not knowing what was going on!
He was a little surprise that Yi Ping had remained where he was and did not follow up on his advantage!
He thought, “He…a mere immortal practitioner can actually breech my defenses?”
He was not the only one who was surprise, everyone else was gasping in shock when Yi Ping had suddenly overcome the Sovereign Thunder Heavenly King!
Perhaps the most shocked had been Yong Le and the other two Heavenly Kings who were now staring in disbelief at the scene!
The Sovereign Thunder Heavenly King hummed coldly as he wiped away the blood at the tip of his mouth, “You should have tried to strike me when I am vulnerable. Perhaps you will still be able to stand a chance. But now it is really too late. You have really infuriated me!”
All of a sudden there was a powerful burst of racking thunderous martial force that erupted from around him as he leapt onto Yi Ping in a blink of an eye, “This is my epitome divine technique, the Divine Thunder God Strike…”
Alice gasped out, “Yi Ping, be careful! This Divine Thunder God Strike is able to emulate the lightning power of the Divine Calamity!”
The Goddess Asura, the Goddess Isa and the Goddess of Mercy were all calling out to him, “Yi Ping, don’t take this technique headlong!”
As the Sovereign Thunder Heavenly King leapt upon Yi Ping with an electric vortex, the divine swords that were in Yi Ping’s hands had suddenly burst into two golden radiance as Yi Ping displayed the Sanctorum Manifesting of the Celestial Alice!
There were multiple thunderous impacts as the Sovereign Thunder Heavenly King and Yi Ping were once again exchanging blows but less than ten thunderous impacts later, Yi Ping was slashing at the Sovereign Thunder Heavenly King!
Or rather, not once, not twice, not just a couple of times but in a blink of an eye, he had slashed a whirling twenty times at the Sovereign Thunder Heavenly King and had sent him flying upward!
Everyone was stunned by Yi Ping’s martial display!
And before everyone could recover from their stunned expressions, the Sovereign Thunder Heavenly King had fallen onto the ground with a loud stumping crash, never to wake up!
All of a sudden Yi Ping swung the heavier Celestial Alice gently aside and immediately, all the dusts and martial windforces were forcefully dissipated; it was as though the fight had never happened!
Skylord Jun was staring blankly at the scene as he muttered with disbelief, “He has actually killed a Heavenly King…how is it possible…”
Yong Le, the Sovereign Wind Heavenly King and the Sovereign Cloud Heavenly King were the most stunned!
The Sovereign Wind Heavenly King had raised his fingers to display into sword fingers as he shouted angrily, “You won’t get away with this!”
Alice and Shen Xingyue both raised her divine swords to interrupt him but they were quickly swept aside by the overwhelming sweeping sword energies of the Sovereign Wind Heavenly King!
Alice scurried several steps back even as she cried out angrily, “The next round of the duel has not even started yet!”
The Sovereign Wind Heavenly King shouted out, “It has started now!”
And he had jumped upon Yi Ping in the next instant as dozens of piercing sword energies began to explode around Yi Ping!
Even though Yi Ping was alarmed by the dozens of piercing sword energies but he found himself acting in a totally calm manner. It was because he seemed to be able to predict the pathway of the maddening sword energies as he raised his divine swords to deflect or to evade all the sword energies without having to move from his original position!
This naturally did not happen from chance!
By now, he had finally attained the true Martial Unifying Theorem when he had merged with the Dark Emperor Robe and his fighting instincts were now awakened!
That was also the true reason why he was able to defeat the Sovereign Thunder Heavenly King in such a short time!
It was because by the time Yi Ping had seen his strokes, he had already uncannily familiarized with it as though he had experienced it before!
Therefore Yi Ping had moved several strokes ahead of the Sovereign Thunder Heavenly King and hence that was why it had seemed so bewildered to everyone when the Sovereign Thunder Heavenly King had suddenly seemed to have lost his ability to guard against Yi Ping and even seemed completely defenseless!
But this Sovereign Wind Heavenly King was twice as swift as the Sovereign Thunder Heavenly King and Yi Ping knew that the same techniques would not be able to work against him.
Therefore as Yi Ping did a quick flip aside, he had mustered the Thousand Memories Swords and sent it flying towards the Sovereign Wind Heavenly King!
The Sovereign Wind Heavenly King was startled, “What the…”
He quickly displayed dozens of sword energies through his sword fingers to dissipate the incoming flying swords but it seemed to have no effect! Finally he had to raise his physical finger to shatter the incoming immaterial swords!
He was really startled as he thought, “What sort of sword techniques are these?! Don’t tell me he has actually reached the divine state of materializing his imaginable swords?! Impossible! Not unless he has the Pangu Intricate Force or else no one will be able to reach that martial divine state!”
All of a sudden Yi Ping was upon him in the next instant and had knocked him aside with two powerful display of the Heavens Encompassing Strike, stunning him!
He was so engrossed in destroying the immaterial swords that he had actually forgotten that his real opponent was Yi Ping and not these immaterial swords!
The Sovereign Wind Heavenly King rose to his feet almost immediately as he shouted to the Sovereign Cloud Heavenly King, “Old man! What are you still waiting for? Hurry and bring him down together. With the two of us joining hands together, he can never be able to defeat us!”
The Sovereign Cloud Heavenly King was startled by this request…
The Sovereign Wind Heavenly King had already moved to fight Yi Ping once more but he still shouting to the Sovereign Cloud Heavenly King, “Don’t you want to avenge for our brother?!”
The Sovereign Cloud Heavenly King flashed a murderous intent at Yi Ping as he unsheathed his immortal sword, “That is right. Why shouldn’t I avenge my brother?”
Alice, Isa, Asura, Aiel and Xiang turned ashen immediately!
It was because the immortal sword that was being used by the Sovereign Cloud Heavenly King was known as the Fantian Sovereign Sword, a well-known powerful immortal sword that even the Greater Heavenly Kings were hesitant to confront!
Yong Le was smiling as he waved his fan as he exclaimed wryly, “Oh dear, oh dear. Yi Ping is going to be a dead hero!”
