Chapter 0994: Killing Dao Transformation Holy Emperors
After hearing Ning Cheng’s words, the white-robed woman and Hou Fu quickly sprung to action and pushed themselves to their limits, leaving nothing back. They didn’t think Ning Cheng lied to them. After all, no matter how powerful the Seven Bridges Spirit Technique was, Ning Cheng was only a Dao Sculpting Holy Emperor.
A Dao Sculpting cultivator trapping five Dao Transformation Holy Emperors with the Seven Bridges Spirit Technique for ten breaths was already an awe-inspiring achievement.
With the white-robed woman and Hou Fu giving it their all, the pressure on the two Dao Transformation Holy Emperors fighting against them increased severalfold. Coupled with the fact that they were currently fighting within Ning Cheng’s Seven Bridges, they became even more anxious in their hearts.
The first Dao Transformation Holy Emperor who fell into Ning Cheng’s trap was the same fellow who previously treated Ning Cheng like an ant. At this moment, trapped within Ning Cheng’s Seven Bridges Spirit Technique and spear patterns, he almost lost his mind to panic. In his eyes, Ning Cheng was just a Dao Sculpting Holy Emperor, yet displayed such powerful means. He no longer felt that he could finish off Ning Cheng with a casual slap like before.
Assessing the sudden changes around him, this Dao Transformation Holy Emperor no longer had the mind to fight against Ning Cheng on the First Bridge of Coping. Instead, he immediately focussed all his efforts on breaking out.
He was also worried that Ning Cheng still had a hidden trump card. Therefore, while he tried to figure out how to rush out of the First Bridge of Coping, he also focussed a part of his perception on defending against Ning Cheng.
Unfortunately, even with the First Bridge of Coping, Ning Cheng knew that he couldn’t finish this Dao Transformation Holy Emperor. If it was just one Dao Transformation Holy Emperor on the First Bridge of Coping, Ning Cheng had complete confidence in taking that holy emperor head-on. But right now, his First Bridge of Coping had to spread out its power to slow down five Dao Transformation Holy Emperors. What’s more, he had to stall three of them by himself.
Fortunately, this Dao Transformation Holy Emperor didn’t seem to want a head-on fight against him. While the spear patterns and this Dao Transformation Holy Emperor were still locked in a stalemate, Ning Cheng’s spear trajectory suddenly changed directions. In an instant, a colossal setting sun manifested and blasted towards the Dao Transformation Holy Emperor fighting against the white-robed woman.
The white-robed woman was already pushing herself to the limit and using everything she had to fight against her opponent, trying to kill him as quickly as possible. However, her strength wasn’t much higher than her opponent’s, and it only resulted in a stalemate.
Just at this moment, a setting sun suddenly appeared between the two.
Time stopped this instant, with nothing but the waning sun between the two.
Even if this wasn’t in the middle of Ning Cheng’s First Bridge of Coping, Ning Cheng’s Sunset’s Dusk could still bring the flow of time to a stop. Let alone now when they were within Ning Cheng’s First Bridge of Coping.
No time for coping, only a remnant sun over the blood river.
The waning sun dipped, reflecting over the tumbling river of blood, looking bleak yet beautiful.
The white-robed woman felt taken aback, but then she noticed the confusion in her opponent’s gaze. It looked as if her opponent got trapped in the poignant sunset. No, the opponent’s physical body was still present, but her opponent’s ‘time’ was no longer ‘flowing’. In short, her opponent was ‘stuck’ in time.
Law of Time spirit technique? The white-robed woman instantly sobered up. Without further hesitation, the shadowy sword in her hand cut through the void and sliced through the neck of the Dao Transformation Holy Emperor fighting against her.
The essence spirit had just emerged, still trapped in time, when it got swept away by the tumbling river of blood.
Seeing the white-robed woman cooperating with his Sunset’s Twilight at the right moment, Ning Cheng felt overjoyed. It saved him a lot of energy. The long spear rolled up even more spear patterns and blocked the Dao Transformation Holy Emperor fighting against him.
This Dao Transformation Holy Emperor had just discovered a way to break out of the Bridge of Coping when he saw his companion dying to the white-robed woman.
Ning Cheng, a Dao Sculpting cultivator, had distracted himself while fighting against him and teamed up with the white-robed woman to kill a Dao Transformation Holy Emperor. Instead of feeling angry, this caused him to be filled with even more panic.
Because of this newly amplified panic, he desperately wanted to rush out of Ning Cheng’s First Bridge of Coping. After all, anything could happen while fighting on the enemy’s turf.
The white-robed woman was very good at spotting opportunities. Therefore, despite just teaming up with Ning Cheng to kill a Dao Transformation Holy Emperor, she immediately went up against another Dao Transformation Holy Emperor who had just broken free from the First Bridge of Coping.
With the Dao Transformation Holy Emperor fighting against Ning Cheng no longer wanting to fight, Ning Cheng’s First Bridge of Coping no longer faced the same pressure.
With the pressure considerably weakening, the power of the First Bridge of Coping also exploded with full force. Empowered by Ning Cheng’s spiritual consciousness and spirit essence, it began to put more pressure on the remaining Dao Transformation Holy Emperors.
The billowing yin winds mixed with the tumbling blood river and surged upwards. Seeing this, the Dao Transformation cultivator fighting against Ning Cheng grew even more alarmed.
A simple yet loud voice emerged, making him involuntarily retreat to the middle of the First Bridge of Coping.
“….. Once you enter Coping, you never return…… No looking homewards, no reincarnation…..”
This voice was like a shadow that couldn’t be driven away, constantly lingering in one’s mind.
“Ah…..” The Dao Transformation Holy Emperor finally couldn’t help but scream, and the hook in his hand suddenly grabbed onto a piece of space and pulled it upward.
This piece of pulled-up space completely blocked Ning Cheng’s killing intent; it even created a path for him to rush out of the First Bridge of Coping.
A moment ago, Ning Cheng had relatively reasonable control over the entire battlefield. But after this Dao Transformation Holy Emperor used that space-related spirit technique, and he no longer had control over everything. After all, even with the help of the First Bridge of Coping, Ning Cheng’s true strength was still some distance away from a middle-stage Dao Transformation cultivator.
Feeling Ning Cheng couldn’t take control of his space, this Dao Transformation Holy felt overjoyed. He had finally returned to his senses. Even though powerful, Ning Cheng was still just a Dao Sculpting Holy Emperor. His true strength was not as powerful as he had shown.
After understanding this, not only did he not rush out of the newly created escape route and leave the First Bridge of Coping, he instead changed directions and ran towards Ning Cheng at an angle.
This piece of heaven and earth was now entirely under the control of his hook. As the hook pulled up more space, space quickly started to wrap around Ning Cheng. It felt like a new law had replaced everything else, creating a new world. It gave one the illusion that everything within this space had to follow the words of the hook’s master as their law.
Feeling the aura of death approaching, Ning Cheng’s heart filled with anger. He never expected someone to form a new space trapped within his First Bridge of Coping and even suppress him with that newly created space. Even if his opponent was a Dao Transformation Holy Emperor, Ning Cheng took it as a personal insult and something shameful.
“Break…….” In Ning Cheng’s hand, the spear suddenly shot out blinding rays filled with laws towards the space formed by the spirit hook. These laws almost instantly destroyed the spatial rules within the newly created space and ground it to dust.
With the spatial technique’s spatial laws destroyed, the space formed by the Dao Transformation Holy Emperor’s hook shattered instantly. But even if Ning Cheng rushed out of the space, he suffered an intense backlash as his previous attack also affected the spatial laws of the Bridge of Coping.
Fortunately, if the bridge wasn’t a part of Ning Cheng’s spirit technique, even if Law Break only shattered his opponent’s laws, Ning Cheng would have died.
Under the bridge, the tumbling blood river automatically mobilised a mysterious force that sent Ning Cheng back to the First Bridge of Coping. But the Dao Transformation Holy Emperor had already turned around to flee by this time.
Seeing that Ning Cheng had actually broken his space world, he no longer dared to stay on Ning Cheng’s Bridge of Coping. He rushed to the edge of the bridge with a flash and almost stepped out.
Not only him, but the other two holy emperors held back by the white-robed woman and Hua Fu, and the last one who Ning Cheng had trapped separately, got freed because of the backlash caused by shattering the spacial world. They also quickly broke through the remaining restraints and rushed towards the edge of the Bridge of Coping to get out.
This development also shocked the white-robed woman and Hua Fu. They definitely would die if their opponents broke out of Ning Cheng’s Bridge of Coping’s bindings.
“Plotting against me on my First Bridge of Coping, and still wanting to leave…….” Ning Cheng’s icy voice emerged, “Second Bridge of Looking Homewards, condense…….”
The two Dao Transformation Holy Emperors had just stepped out of the bridge when a majestic dao rhythm emerged out of nowhere and suppressed them immediately. The two had only managed to bring out a defensive weapon when an earthy yellow stone bridge appeared in front of the two.
“Second Bridge of Looking Homewards”. Five big words materialised suspended over the bridgehead. The two Dao Transformation Holy emperors immediately lost control of their bodies and stepped directly onto the bridge.
Ning Cheng knew that his strength was insufficient to lock more than two Dao Transformation Holy Emperors. Therefore, he gave up on one of the two and immediately focussed on the dao rhythm of the Second Bridge of Looking Homewards on the Dao Transformation Holy Emperor. After all, the latter had almost managed to kill him with that spatial technique.
“Second Bridge of Looking Homewards?” The Dao Transformation Holy Emperor given up by Ning Cheng instantly came to his senses. He no longer cared about his companions and frantically tried to rush out from the bridge.
In fact, if he actually joined forces with his companions against Ning Cheng at this moment, Ning Cheng would have no choice but to put away the bridge and flee. Even if Ning Cheng focused on just one, he couldn’t have done much at that time.
Ning Cheng had consumed too much to bind those five people and no longer had the strength or ability to lock all the remaining Dao Transformation Holy Emperors. Unfortunately, Ning Cheng’s opponents couldn’t realise it due to fear taking root in their hearts.
The Seven Bridges Spirit Technique was well-known for its ferocity and lethality. Even without the emergence of the second bridge, he would have definitely died if he was even a moment late. What if Ning Cheng could bring out the third and fourth bridges too?
Facing the Second Bridge of Looking Homewards coming out, he just wanted to escape. He didn’t even realise that the Second Bridge of Looking Homewards was far less stable and solid than the First Bridge of Coping.
Watching one of the holy emperors escape from the Second Bridge of Looking Homewards, the white-robed woman and Hua Fu could do nothing. They already had their hands full in keeping their opponents at bay and had no choice but to let Ning Cheng fight alone.
Ning Cheng no longer focussed on the holy emperor who escaped from his Bridge of Looking Homewards. He didn’t even communicate with the Bridge of Looking Homewards to attack his opponent.
Instead, all his power and concentration focussed on the Dao Transformation Holy Emperor trapped in his Bridge of Looking Homewards.
“….. Don’t look at each other, don’t wander either, stepping onto the bridge only means a broken heart…….”
The Bridge of Looking Homewards could suppress thousands of dao rhythms, and even this Dao Transformation Holy Emperor couldn’t break free.
Ning Cheng’s spear then shot out countless spear patterns one after another. This time, it wasn’t Sunset’s Twilight, but pure killing intent condensed out of his Dao of Spears.
The moment the lance came into contact with the brow of this Dao Transformation Holy Emperor, this Dao Transformation Holy Emperor unexpectedly came to his senses. He gave an angry shout, and the hook in his hand immediately came up. However, under the suppression from the Bridge of Looking Homewards’ dao rhythm, it was no better than a regular rake. It had no effect on Ning Cheng.
Ning Cheng only gave a cold snort, and even more spear patterns shot out. He wasn’t going to let up.
“Stop. If you don’t spare me, I will explode…..” This Dao Transformation Holy Emperor finally glimpsed at Ning Cheng’s ruthlessness. Even if the Bridge of Looking Homewards had suppressed his killing intent, the reluctance and pride in his heart and soul had still not died.
Ning Cheng’s tone remained calm. “When I was in the Eternal Realm, I could already use the two bridges to kill Dao Transformation cultivators. You’re not qualified to blow yourself up on my Bridge of Looking Homewards!”
“Poof…….” Blood immediately splashed. The Dao Transformation Holy Emperor stiffly realised that he genuinely had no power to self-detonate. Under the suppression of Ning Cheng’s Bridge of Looking Homewards and spear intent, he could only watch on helplessly as he died.
