“Leave quickly!” The expressions of the buddhas, bodhisattvas, and arhats changed greatly.
“Gu Hai, you dare?!” the Future Buddha screamed in fear.
The Future Buddha had blocked the Immortal Slaying Flying Saber to save the buddhas, bodhisattvas, and arhats. However, Gu Hai now swung his Life Executioner Saber.
A massive manifested saber rushed at the Future Buddha, causing his expression to change dramatically. He hastily removed his kāṣāya and flung it at Gu Hai.
The moment he tossed out the kāṣāya, it turned into a golden mountain descending from the sky, pressing downwards.
The Cycle Saber Technique was very powerful, splitting the golden mountain in half with a loud sound and scattering it in all directions. Although the manifested saber had weakened, it still arrived before the Future Buddha.
The manifested saber knocked the Future Buddha flying, blood spraying everywhere.
The Future Buddha could not save the buddhas, bodhisattvas, and arhats in time. The Immortal Slaying Flying Saber would not return without a head. The heads of all the buddhas, bodhisattvas, and arhats flew off before they could even utter a final scream.
As Gu Hai’s cultivation increased, the Immortal Slaying Flying Saber became mightier. When he used it now, it was no weaker than Lu Ya’s use back then.
Even early-stage Upper Heavenly Palace Realm cultivators lost their heads before the Immortal Slaying Flying Saber.
The Immortal Slaying Flying Saber returned to the Immortal Slaying Calabash after chopping off several heads.
“Your Reverence is mighty!” the citizens cheered wildly in obvious anger and hatred for the Spirit Mountain Holy Land.
Previously, they might have pitied these monks. However, the Future Buddha had wanted to kill all the citizens earlier.
Who would pity these monks at this point? All the citizens wished they could kill the monks themselves.
The citizens cheered, but the Future Buddha’s expression changed dramatically.
As the Future Buddha ran, he howled, “Gu Hai returned! Save me! Save me!”
The severely injured Future Buddha rushed into the vast fog around Borderless Heavenly Capital.
However, three powerful skeletons suddenly appeared in front of the Future Buddha the moment he entered the fog. They simultaneously attacked him.
“What?” The Future Buddha’s expression changed.
Three palm strikes combined into one attack that instantly knocked the severely injured Future Buddha back to the Soaring Palace Hall’s plaza.
It was the nether realm experts the Unborn Man summoned who attacked.
“Treasure, please bind!” Gu Hai swapped to the Vine World Calabash.
Countless vines burst out of the calabash’s opening to bind the Future Buddha, who was vomiting blood.
“No!” the Future Buddha cried out in fear.
The vines pulled the Future Buddha over to Gu Hai.
The Future Buddha was now restrained.
“His Reverence is mighty!” the officials cheered excitedly.
Earlier, the Future Buddha had pushed them to the brink of death. Now, the emperor returned, killed all the bandits in the blink of an eye, and captured the ringleader.
“Gu Hai, are you planning on becoming enemies with my Spirit Mountain Holy Land? The Lord Buddha will not let you off!” the Future Buddha roared ferociously.
Gu Hai sneered, “Why didn’t you think of these words before you attacked?”
“You! Don’t think that you—” the Future Buddha roared, depressed.
“Either you open your eyes or shut your mouth!” Gu Hai’s eyes turned cold.
The Future Buddha immediately stopped speaking. Open my eyes? If I open them, it will be over for me. With the World Cleansing Shut Eyes Meditation, opening my eyes means going down with the enemy.
Gu Hai ignored the Future Buddha, turning to Chang Ming instead. Wounds riddled Chang Ming’s body. Although the Primal Essence Pearl entered his body, he had used it to protect the palace earlier, so he had suffered burning pain from the purification of the Buddhist chanting.
Screech! Screech! Screech! Screech!
Many bats flew out and rushed to the headless buddhas, bodhisattvas, and arhats. They sucked the blood of these corpses, which then withered.
The bats returned to Chang Ming’s body, and he felt slightly better.
“Their blood can treat you?” Gu Hai asked.
“Yes, Your Reverence. Although the Buddhist light is the nemesis of the blood race, a buddha’s blood is great nourishment for the blood race.” Chang Ming nodded.
“You can have him. Just leave him alive!” Gu Hai tossed the Vine World Calabash to Chang Ming, handing the Future Buddha to Chang Ming along with it.
“Gu Hai, what are you trying to do?” The Future Buddha’s expression suddenly changed.
“Thank you, Your Reverence.” Chang Ming accepted the calabash and the Future Buddha.
Screech! Screech! Screech! Screech!
Many bats erupted from Chang Ming and enveloped the Future Buddha to suck the Future Buddha’s blood.
“No! Don’t! Gu Hai, you will die a horrible death!” the Future Buddha roared furiously in despair.
However, there were too many vines in the surroundings. Furthermore, no one could clearly see inside since the bats obscured their vision. Of course, no one would stop this, even if anyone could see. At this moment, everyone wished they could kill the Future Buddha.
The Unborn Man sent the three skeletons back to the nether realm and flew to the Soaring Palace Hall’s plaza.
Just then, a loud sound rang out as a powerful gust blew through Borderless Heavenly Capital, roiling the vast fog around the city. Then, a figure shot towards the Soaring Palace Hall like a fired cannonball.
The Unborn Man waved his hand, and black energy soared into the sky.
That figure slowed down and stopped in front of Gu Hai.
That figure spewed a mouthful of blood when he landed, his face as pale as white paper.
“Bodhisattva Lian Sheng, are you alright?” Gu Hai looked at the person the Unborn Man saved.
“I won’t die. Haha! Cough! Cough! Cough!” Bodhisattva Lian Sheng coughed blood, showing a sorrowful, bitter smile filled with rage.
Gu Hai extended his hand and placed the Life Trapper Saber in the ritual array’s core. Then he waved his hand as he operated the ritual array.
The boundless fog immediately scattered.
Loud sounds came from outside.
Boom! Boom! Boom! Boom!
The battles in the surroundings suddenly stopped.
Everyone besides Sha and that black figure fighting in outer space above stopped.
The expressions of Brahma, Vishnu, Shiva, and Di Sh*tian changed as they coursed to the Past Buddha.
The Past Buddha held an azure lamp as he looked coldly at the Soaring Palace Hall’s plaza.
“Gu Hai? What did you do to the Future Buddha?” the Past Buddha demanded in a rage.
Everyone had heard the Future Buddha shout when he tried to flee earlier.
Unfortunately, everyone had a challenging opponent.
Kong Xuan, Shangguan Hen, Ao Shun, and the Mosquito Daoist stopped fighting, understanding it would be impossible to end the battles quickly.
The four quickly flew to Gu Hai.
A golden beam of light soared into the sky from Gu Hai’s body. It was a significantly fainter golden blessings dragon.
When the golden blessings dragon entered the blessings cloud sea, surging blessings poured into it and replenished the drained golden blessings dragon. In mere moments, the golden blessings dragon swelled back into a humongous dragon that glared ferociously at Borderless Heavenly Capital’s enemies.
“Quickly release the Future Buddha!” Di Sh*tian said coldly while glaring.
Gu Hai glanced at Di Sh*tian with a sneer, then ignored him. Instead, he looked at the Past Buddha.
“To think you returned alive?” The Past Buddha showed a sullen expression.
Although the Past Buddha was worried about the Future Buddha, he did not reveal much. Instead, he looked at Gu Hai coldly, a hint of incredulity flashing in his eyes.
Even with Long Shenwu, Long Shenying, Ao Sheng, the Southern Sea Dragon King, Lifespan Chunshen, Lifespan Beiming, and the corpse worm the Lord Buddha bestowed on them, they still could not deal with Gu Hai? Gu Hai even returned here? This Gu Hai is too hard to kill,
“The Spirit Mountain Holy Land killed two hundred million of my citizens and wanted to kill three hundred million more citizens in my Borderless Heavenly Capital. You treat my Han Nation citizens’ lives like worthless grass. We will remember this grudge. We will repay this grudge a hundredfold—a thousandfold—over!” Gu Hai said coldly.
“Humph! Gu Hai, quickly let go of the Future Buddha. Don’t forget, Tang Gu’s spiritual souls are with me. Otherwise, I will make Tang Gu’s spiritual souls suffer a tribulation he will never recover from!” the Past Buddha said coldly.
Gu Hai narrowed his eyes.
The officials and citizens appeared slightly confused. Tang Gu? Who is Tang Gu?
At the side, Gu Qin’s expression changed. “Father…”
“Tang Gu, right? His name is actually Gu Tang, right? He is your son. Previously, he remained incognito outside. Now, only his spiritual souls are left. You aren’t going to abandon him, right?” the Past Buddha said coldly.
“What? His Reverence’s son?”
“How despicable of the Spirit Mountain Holy Land! To think they use His Reverence’s son to threaten His Reverence!”
“Gu Tang? Is he really His Reverence’s son?”
Countless citizens immediately discussed this.
However, Gu Hai clenched his fist, and a cold glint flashed in his eyes.
Gu Tang? Not many people in the world knew his identity. The White Emperor knew about it, but Gu Hai guessed that the White Emperor would not explain so much to the Spirit Mountain Holy Land after the previous matter.
There was only one possibility. The Spirit Mountain Holy Land had already interrogated Gu Tang.
Gu Tang was a stubborn person, someone with a tight lip. It would be practically impossible to dig information out of him. However, the Past Buddha knew about it.
Who knew what inhumane torture Gu Tang had experienced?
“Hah! Hahahaha!” Gu Hai suddenly guffawed coldly.
“Why aren’t you letting the Future Buddha yet?!” the Past Buddha bellowed.
“Chang Ming, dig out the Future Buddha’s eyes!” Gu Hai shouted coldly.
“Yes!” Chang Ming answered.
“You dare?!” The Past Buddha glared.
“Surround them! None of them is to leave this place today!” Gu Hai shouted coldly.
“Yes!” Kong Xuan, the Mosquito Daoist, Ao Shun, and Shangguan Hen thundered in reply.
They immediately surrounded all the people from the Spirit Mountain Holy Land.
The Past Buddha’s expression suddenly changed. My threat did not affect Gu Hai?
“Gu Hai, keep being audacious, and I will shatter Gu Tang’s souls beyond recovery. Do you believe that?!” the Past Buddha roared furiously while glaring.
However, Gu Hai ignored the Past Buddha. Instead, he extended his hand to reach for the Life Trapper Saber.
The Life Trapper Saber operated the ritual array, spewing out boundless sword qi that surrounded Borderless Heavenly Capital.
Everyone understood that Gu Hai would go all out this time. None of the people who came would leave; they would all remain here.
The Future Buddha shrieked in agony nearby. Chang Ming had dug out his eyeballs.
“Since you don’t dare to open your eyes and break the World Cleansing Shut Eyes Meditation, then don’t open them forever,” Chang Ming said sinisterly among countless bats.
“How dare you?!” The Past Buddha glared, betraying a trace of panic.
The recently rescued Bodhisattva Lian Sheng also appeared slightly shocked. Is Gu Hai truly planning to keep all of them here?
Among the citizens, spies from the various factions lurked in Borderless Heavenly Capital’s surroundings. Gu Hai’s ferocious posture startled them.
The Spirit Mountain Holy Land? It seems that besides the Present Buddha, all its experts are here.
Gu Hai wants to keep all of them here? Is that true?
