Lord of All Realms - Chapter 1350: A Storm Is Brewing[Updated at: 2021-01-14 16:14:45]
With one knee on the ground, she bowed her head and said, “I hope you’ll accept my offer.”
Nie Tian was right. She didn’t have to come to him if she only had information about the outsiders to share.
Either Dong Li or Jing Feiyang could pass the information on to him.
However, if she wanted to join Nie Tian’s force, she would have to get his personal consent.
“You want to join my force at this moment?” Nie Tian found this surprising. “You were the first to notice the outsiders’ unusual movements. You must understand that the Phantasms, Demons, and Fiends have all sent out grand monarchs to deal with me. On top of that, Gupi has made me its primary target as well.
“Now, the majority of the Saint domain experts who traveled to the Realm of Maelstrom have left after learning about the impending invasion of the joint outsider forces and Gupi.
“Why would you want to join my force at this moment?”
White Rose raised her head. Icy gleaming light shone in her determined and stubborn eyes as she said, “Only if I join you when you and the Domain of Heaven Python are in a difficult time can I show my sincerity. And only if I do this will you value me and know that I’m a subordinate you can rely on in perilous moments.”
Approval filled Jing Feiyang’s face as he said, “I’m impressed. No wonder you’re able to lead an organization that covers multiple domains.”
Nie Tian took a deep look at her. After hesitating for a while, he took a glance at Jing Feiyang.
Jing Feiyang nodded and said with a smile, “I think we can take her in. As a Son of the Stars, Sikong Cuo took Master Bloody Despair into his force, and that man was defined as a residual evil of the Blood Spirit Sect in his early days. He could absorb Star Hunters. Why can’t you?
“Not to mention that your status in the Ancient Fragmentary Star Palace has long since risen above his!”
With a sincere tone, he added, “Besides, all of the four ancient great sects are relying on you and your missing master to confine or seal Gupi. Under such circumstances, you’ll have a just reason to build up your force and your own strength.”
At this moment, White Rose said softly, “Even though I’m only at the middle Saint domain, which isn’t comparable to the cultivation bases of many of your powerful subordinates, my people know the Domain of Heaven Python and its surrounding areas extremely well, and we’ve set up many communication devices and teleportation portals. We can learn the outsiders’ movements, even the slightest of them, and inform you at the first possible moment.”
“Alright.” Nie Tian finally gave his consent.
“Many thanks!” White Rose said excitedly.
There was a vast difference between Nie Tian’s status and battle prowess now and when he had traveled to the Domain of Endless Snow.
Right now, he was the most popular and powerful chosen one in the human world.
If she could attach herself to him, her Star Hunters wouldn’t have to hide anymore.
The Heavenly Ice Sect from the Domain of Endless Snow and Master Bloody Despair definitely wouldn’t dare to mess with her anymore.
Furthermore, she would be able to openly find a realm and make it her headquarters, or ask Nie Tian to assign an area to her.
Any human sect or clan would have to consider the consequences of offending Nie Tian if they wanted to make a move against her.
One had to know that Nie Tian had defeated the Remote Beginning Heavenly Sect, the Jade Heaven Sect, and forced the Shadow Society to back off. Even the other three great sects had been keen about having him join them!
Before, he had been a rapidly-growing sapling in her eyes, but now he had already grown into a sky-reaching tree.
“Alright, I’ll handle the rest,” Jing Feiyang said with a hearty laugh. “We’re on the same ship from now on. And your people don’t need to have any scruples about entering the realms in the Domain of Heaven Python, the Domain of the Falling Stars, and the Domain of Heaven’s Boundaries anymore.”
Elation filled White Rose’s eyes.
“Come on. Let’s go. He needs to be alone.” With these words, Jing Feiyang entered the teleportation portal with White Rose. The spell formation was activated, and the two of them vanished into thin air.
Nie Tian, however, took out an eighth grade Goldskin Beast and started absorbing its flesh power through Life Drain.
At this point, he had already condensed all three hundred drops of Blood Essence and finished all the body refinement and upgrade that was allowed by his eighth grade bloodline.
During the past few days, he had been fusing all of the pure flesh power he had absorbed and refined into the green aura in his heart, so it could grow and reach its next breakthrough point within a shorter time.
However, the fact that he hadn’t been presented with an opportunity to enter the Blood Realm after he had finished condensing Blood Essence and refining his body frustrated him.
If he couldn’t enter the Blood Realm, he wouldn’t be able to learn new bloodline magics.
When his bloodline had been at the seventh grade, an opportunity to enter the Blood Realm had presented itself naturally. However, he didn’t feel any signs of such an opportunity now.
“Gupi... If I want to seal Gupi, I have to be stronger, and I need to acquire more diversified powers.”
Two weeks later.
Every last spirit beast and outsider corpse that the Five Elements Sect and the other sects had contributed had been exhausted.
However, Nie Tian’s bloodline aura still hadn’t fallen dormant, which meant it yearned for more flesh power.
What it had absorbed was far from enough.
Like an icy bolt of lightning, Nie Tian’s gaze shot into the distant void that was dimly lit by stars.
He knew that in the direction he exerted his sight, Demons were gathering and preparing to launch a dreadful battle against him.
“Their rich flesh power can be used as my new source of flesh power will help me enter the ninth grade!” he said with a cold expression. “If I can get rid of Gupi and then kill the outsider invaders, that’ll probably help me accumulate enough flesh power for my bloodline upgrade.
“And if I can kill a grand monarch...”
With these words, Nie Tian licked his lips, a ferocious look appearing in his eyes. However, it was quickly suppressed.
“Since I can’t get my hands on more materials that provide flesh power for now, I’m not getting anywhere with my bloodline, so I guess I’ll have to shift my focus to the changes in my cultivation after I entered the Void domain. I’ve got to try to derive new enlightenment of the Sea of Illusory Stars, which was derived from the Fragmentary Star Incantation.”
With this idea, he gathered his soul awareness and sent it into the fragmentary star mark that recorded Sea of Illusory Stars.
Losing his soul power bit by bit, he carefully studied the profound mysteries within the mark in an attempt to derive new enlightenment.
In the Realm of Maelstrom.
Ji Yuanquan sighed softly and said, “Our vice sectmaster is not going to send any powerful experts to join this battle. I’m sorry, but there’s really nothing I can do.”
Face grim, Fan Tianze said, “I noticed that Xuan Guangyu has disliked Nie Tian since the upheaval in the Shatter Battlefield. The Shadow Society must have gained his support. Otherwise, they wouldn’t have dared to unite the Jade Heaven Sect and the Remote Beginning Heavenly Sect to launch an operation against the Ancient Fragmentary Star Palace. That Hong Minghui he backs doesn’t deserve to be the next sectmaster, yet he’s still hell bent on helping him win the competition.”
Ji Yuanquan didn’t dare to join in on this topic.
Fan Tianze was at the middle God domain. Both his battle prowess and status were rarely matched. Therefore, there were things that he dared to say, but others didn’t.
“The Five Elements Sect has sent quite a number of Saint domain disciples to help us,” Ye Wenhan said. “But none of their God domain experts are around. This is the best they can do.”
“What about the Ancient Fragmentary Star Palace?” Fan Tianze asked. “Nie Tian is their Son of the Stars. Why haven’t their experts arrived yet?”
“That’s because Chu Rui and Zu Guangyao are busy putting down rebellions in their subordinate domans,” Ye Wenhan answered. “As for Luo Wanxiang, he seems to have disappeared for a long time. No one knows where he is.”
Fan Tianze let out a cold harrumph. “Rumor has it that Luo Wanxiang has close connections with the Phantasms. I’d rather he didn’t come.”
Jing Feiyang suddenly flew over from afar.
Upon arriving, he exclaimed, “Vice Sectmaster Luo Wanxiang of the Ancient Fragmentary Star Palace showed up in the starry river between the Domain of Heaven’s Boundaries and the Domain of Heaven Python. He seems to have met Grand Monarch Dark Nether of the Phantasms.”
With a cold smile, Fan Tianze said, “It seems that what Nie Tian said was true. That Luo Wanxiang does have secret connections with the Phantasms.”
“Where did you learn that?” Ye Wenhan asked.
“From White Rose’s men,” Jing Feiyang explained. “They left magical mirrors on many floating meteors. One of them caught sight of Luo Wanxiang’s divine tool flying past. And the direction it flew in is where the Phantasms are gathering.
“In addition, Luo Wanxiang’s All Manifestations Star Banner seems to have become even stronger.”
Fan Tianze pondered for a moment before saying, “Inform the Ancient Fragmentary Star Palace of Luo Wanxiang’s appearance. He’s with them. They need to know that he’s in close connection with the Phantasms. And we’ll see what they want to do with him.”
Jing Feiyang nodded. “Got it.”
A few more days went by.
White Rose’s Star Hunters returned with the latest news. Gupi, the Fiend abomination, was spotted in Domain of Flame’s End, which bordered the Domain of Heaven Python, and it no longer tried to hide itself as it dashed towards the Domain of Heaven Python.
Upon learning this, the Demons, Phantasms, and Fiends that had been hovering outside the Domain of Heaven Python showed themselves simultaneously.
Their fleets of ancient starships sailed towards the Domain of Heaven Python in formidable arrays.
A great battle could break out at any moment.
WHOOSH! WHOOSH! WHOOSH!
Many teleportation portals in the Realm of Maelstrom operated non-stop as powerful experts arrived through them. There were also experts that arrived through spatial rifts that manifested in the watery curtain in the heavens.
Harboring gratitude towards Nie Tian for what he had done in the Realm of Fire Spirit, the Divine Sons and Daughters of the Five Elements Sect also came to the Realm of Maelstrom.
Their starships berthed in the starry river outside the Realm of Maelstrom.
Hou Chulan spotted Nie Tian as her starship sailed past a floating meteor enveloped in shimmering starlight.
“Hmm? Isn’t that Nie Tian?” With a soft exclamation, she left her starship and flew over.
