Cheng Ming became extremely stern. When he came here, he felt an ill foreboding. Now that the Heavenless Demon Exalt had suddenly blocked his path, Cheng Ming sensed that the situation was bad.
“I should remain behind and fight him to the death with you, but master has ordered that I must take the girl back safely, so I can’t let anything happen to her. War Demon, be careful. Remember, do not try to take him on forcefully, and you have to leave a fragment of your soul intact no matter what so that master can revive you in the future,” Cheng Ming warned before using a secret technique and charging off in the other direction as quickly as possible.
“Hehe. Grand elder, I’ve come especially for you, so how can you just turn around and leave without saying anything? Am I really that scary?” The Heavenless Demon Exalt snickered. As he said that, a terrifying demonic aura erupted, causing space to crack and the stars around them to dim. It condensed into a huge hand that reached towards Cheng Ming.
When the hand fell, endless energy surged out, sealing up the region and causing Cheng Ming to pause. At the same time, he slowed down as if some invisible energy had restrained him.
“War Blood Ignition!” At this moment, the War Demon bellowed out furiously. With a tremendous presence, he used a God Tier Battle Skill. All the vital energies within him rose, and a black flame sprang up on him as he directly hurled out a fist.
This punch was astonishing, swinging out like it was unstoppable. It shattered the starry space, causing the galaxies to vanish.
At the same time, Cheng Ming fought back with his full strength when he saw how the Heavenless Demon Exalt had restrained him. He completely unleashed his strength as a peak Chaotic Prime and directly used a God Tier Battle Skill, employing his strongest attack at the hand condensed from demonic aura.
Cheng Ming and the War Demon’s full-powered strikes struck the Heavenless Demon Exalt’s hand at basically the same time, erupting with a deafening boom.
The clash this time was truly devastating. Regions of space collapsed one after another, truly being reduced to void.
However, the difference in strength was still far too great. Not only did they fail to stop the Heavenless Demon Exalt’s seemingly casual strike with their full strength, but they also became heavily injured instead when the hand condensed from demonic aura struck them.
Bang! The War Demon was struck first. His entire body shattered, exploding into a bloody rain in outer space.
His body was destroyed, and only a soul that did not shine particularly brightly was left behind.
Cheng Ming’s situation was not any better. The medium quality god artifact armor he wore had dimmed while his face had completely paled. His entire right arm had vanished.
Cheng Ming and the War Demon were only Chaotic Primes, while the Heavenless Demon Exalt was a Fourth Heavenly Layer Grand Prime, a mid Grand Prime. The difference in strength was simply too great such that they were on completely different levels. As a result, the battle became completely one-sided.
“Grand elder, go!” The War Demon called out miserably. His dim soul suddenly lit up brightly while all the blood scattered there was ignited in that instance as well. Black, demonic flames sprang up, gathering together from all directions and charging towards the Heavenless Demon Exalt fearlessly.
Suddenly, a great sound rang out. The War Demon’s soul and his blood all unleashed an astonishing might, surrounding the Heavenless Demon Exalt and blowing up.
This time, no energy was released. Even the deafening boom only lasted for a single instance before vanishing.
The scene the War Demon’s self-destruction created was just too terrifying. A gaping, black hole formed in the space, there, greedily devouring everything present.
Whether it was light or energy, the black hole had devoured it all.
“War Demon!” Cheng Ming called out sorrowfully. He looked at the small black hole in the distance as hatred filled his eyes.
Afterwards, he turned around to leave, unwilling to waste any time at all.
“Your self-destruction is indeed powerful. It can probably injure First Heavenly Layer Grand Primes and threaten Second Heavenly Layer Grand Primes, but to me, it’s still far, far too weak,” said the Heavenless Demon Exalt. He stood near the black hole, and he did not waver at all no matter how hard the hole sucked. Even his clothes did not flutter.
He swung his hand gently and used his hand to rub space. As if the hole had experienced an unimaginable pressure, it collapsed loudly.
“Grand elder, give me the method of how your Empyrean Demon Cult refines blood and soul beads. I’ll let you go if you do,” the Heavenless Demon Exalt said steadily. Having reached the Fourth Heavenly Layer of Grand Prime, he was now the undisputed greatest expert on the Cloud Plane. He had completely stopped fearing the great elder behind the Empyrean Demon Cult.
This was because in his eyes, the great elder was only a Third Heavenly Layer Grand Prime at most. Even if he could make some progress and reach the Fourth Heavenly Layer, he would only be at the same level as the Heavenless Demon Exalt.
Moreover, there was another reason why he dared to attack the Empyrean Demon Cult. This reason was that he possessed reliable information that only the great elder was a Grand Prime in the Empyrean Demon Cult, while he, the Heavenless Demon Exalt, was not alone. He still had the Tian Empire behind him as well as the peak clans that had banded together with the Tian Empire.
His Tian clan had already gathered around half of the peak powers across the Cloud Plane now.
“Heavenless Demon Exalt, you will suffer a horrible fate by opposing our Empyrean Demon Cult. Master will not spare you,” Cheng Ming bellowed out furiously before directly fleeing into a spatial crack.
“If that’s the case, die. As for your great elder, I’ll naturally try him after we conquer the Cloud Plane. I’ll get the method of refining blood and soul beads from him,” the Heavenless Demon Exalt said coldly. A demonic presence wrapped around him, and he also entered the spatial crack, pointing at Cheng Ming who was fleeing for his life from afar.
In the next moment, endless demonic aura suddenly surged out from around Cheng Ming. It wrapped around his body and were like maggots that devoured his flesh at a visible rate.
There seemed to be a dense swarm of demonic insects in the demonic aura.
“I can’t just let your body and soul go to waste like the War Demon’s. They’re perfect for feeding my Demonic Soul Beetles,” the Heavenless Demon Exalt smirked viciously.
“Heavenless Demon Exalt, just you wait for my master’s wrath,” Cheng Ming was not hesitant with his decision. Immediately, he abandoned his body and fled with his soul and a divine hall.
The Heavenless Demon Exalt’s eyes lit up slightly when he saw the divine hall Cheng Ming tried to take away with him. He smiled gently, “You don’t even want your Space Ring, yet you want the divine hall. It looks like the divine hall is extremely important to you.” The Heavenless Demon Exalt extended his hand from afar. Demonic aura surged and formed a huge hand once again, destroying the spatial storms and streaks of energy along the way to grab Cheng Ming’s soul in a brutal fashion.
Afterwards, the hand closed slightly, and Cheng Ming’s soul immediately began to collapse. It turned into specks of light in the spatial crack, gradually dispersing.
The Heavenless Demon Exalt ignored Cheng Ming. In his eyes, Cheng Ming was already dead. He looked at the divine hall and showed interest. Afterwards, he used two fingers to pinch the fist-sized divine hall, and with a slight exertion of force, the divine hall immediately shattered, revealing Xiao Jin and Xiao Ling that Cheng Ming had let in there.
“W- who are you? Where’s grandpa Cheng Ming?” Xiao Ling looked at the Heavenless Demon Exalt who churned with demonic aura in confusion as she asked fearfully. She sensed a frightening presence from the Heavenless Demon Exalt.
Xiao Jin also stood next to Xiao Ling uneasily. He looked at the Heavenless Demon Exalt closely and said nothing. The presence that the Heavenless Demon Exalt gave off terrified him.
Looking at Xiao Jin and Xiao Ling, who had suddenly appeared before him with disappointing cultivation, the Heavenless Demon Exalt was clearly surprised. He felt very confused or even disbelief. The grand elder of the Empyrean Demon Cult did not even want his Space Ring, using all the power of his soul to flee with the divine hall. Clearly, the divine hall must have contained something extremely important. The Heavenless Demon Exalt even suspected that the grand elder had come to the Cloud Plane this time because of what was in the divine hall.
However, why did two brats with an embarrassing level of cultivation appear before him?
“Has the grand elder come especially for the two of you?” The Heavenless Demon Exalt sank into his thoughts. He became more and more certain before smiling coldly in the end, “Hehehe, if that’s the case, I’ll keep the two of you for now. Maybe you’ll be of great use in the future.”
With a wave of his hand, the Heavenless Demon Exalt disappeared from the spatial crack with Xiao Jin and Xiao Ling.
