When Sheng Yuan’s voice rang out again, the atmosphere in this part of the world turned a little strange.
Everybody’s eyes flickered in thought. The Sacred Palace was currently the most powerful sect in Cangxuan Heaven, with the Cangxuan Sect slightly behind them. There was a very deep enmity between the two factions and they were bound to clash whenever they met..
As such, the other experts were able to sit on the mountain and watch the tigers fight.
No one had expected Sheng Yuan to suddenly toss out such a huge secret that instantly caused the Cangxuan Sect to fall apart. The Cangxuan Sect had lost a peak master while gaining a powerful enemy of the Law Domain stage. They could be said to be in deep trouble now...
On the other hand, the Sacred Palace’s imposing might was now unparalleled.
Within the mysterious domain, Zhou Yuan was also aware of the situation, causing worry to color his eyes. The Cangxuan Sect was his backer. As such, the situation would become extremely unfavorable to him if the Cangxuan Sect couldn’t compete with the Sacred Palace.
In the current situation, a tiny Divine Dwelling expert like himself naturally did not have qualifications to participate and could only watch anxiously by the sidelines.
Above the thunderbolt pool, the silence lasted for a good while.
The Heavenly Sword Sovereign of the Sword Seeker Sect suddenly cleared his throat and said in an unhurried manner, “The Cangxuan Saint Stamp is good, but the structure of Cangxuan Heaven is currently stable, and if forced, I am worried it could set off a storm of blood. This would only weaken Cangxuan Heaven’s overall strength.”
In the dark fog that filled the sky, Devil Luo of the Heavenly Ghost Sect patted his bulging belly as he remarked with a smile, “But the Cangxuan Saint Stamp has appeared, we can’t just ignore it, right?”
A smile spread across the honest face of hall master Gu Jing of the North Sea Dragon Subduing Hall, “So you want to be the high and mighty heaven master of Cangxuan Heaven?”
“The Heavenly Ghost Sect most likely doesn’t have that sort of ability.” remarked palace master Shan Qingzi of the Hundred Flowers Fairy Palace in an indifferent voice.
Palace master Sheng Yuan chuckled at the inputs from the other representatives of the major sects. “I have a suggestion. Our six sects can form an alliance and take turns to safe keep the Cangxuan Saint Stamp to avoid any conflicts.”
The others pondered this suggestion seriously.
Sect master Qing Yang icily smiled, “Since it’s an alliance, there will be the more important and the less important, and also first and second. With regards to your proposal, don’t tell me you want to be the lord of the alliance and be the first to safe keep the Cangxuan Saint Stamp?”
Palace master Sheng Yuan said in a domineering manner, “My Sacred Palace is the strongest, if we don’t take the lead, do you think your crumbling Cangxuan Sect should?”
He didn't deny that he had such thoughts.
Sect master Qing Yang glanced at the others, “I am worried that your ambition will not stop at the Cangxuan Saint Stamp, but to even annex the other major sects and truly rule over this land.”
The eyes of the Heavenly Sword Sovereign, Shan Qingzi, and other powerful experts flashed. Although they remained silent and did not say anything, they were clearly more vigilant than before.
If palace master Sheng Yuan was the first to take charge of the Cangxuan Saint Stamp, he would most likely try to obtain control over it. Once successful, his strength would skyrocket, enabling him to push past the Law Domain and step into the Saint stage. When that happened, nobody in the entire Cangxuan Heaven would be his match.
The chances of him handing over the Cangxuan Saint Stamp would then become very very slim...
Palace master Sheng Yuan naturally sensed the vigilance in their eyes. He smiled and said, “It seems that none of you are interested in my proposal?”
Everybody was silent.
Palace master Sheng Yuan couldn’t help but sigh deeply when he saw this. “I originally thought that this matter can be resolved peacefully. Who would have imagined that it would come to this…”
Before his voice could fade, a silver Law Domain spread from his body, transforming into a barrier around him.
A wave of terrifying Law Domain power erupted. He stepped forward with an indifferent look on his face and instantly reappeared behind sect master Qing Yang like a ghost.
Palace master Sheng Yuan folded his fingers towards his palm where silver light rapidly gathered. This was the true power of the Law Domain. The vast power of the Law Domain and Genesis Qi fused to form a unique power that only experts of the Law Domain could wield.
Law Domain Genesis Qi!
That power was the fundamentals of the Law Domain!
The space around palace master Sheng Yuan’s palm suddenly shattered, evidently unable to bear the tremendous power.
If his strength was measured in terms of Genesis Qi stars, it would most likely reach hundreds of millions.
That palm of destruction pierced through the air and headed straight for sect master Qing Yang. Sheng Yuan clearly intended to swiftly crush the latter to deter the other top experts.
Old Xuan was the first to realize palace master Sheng Yuan’s intentions. He immediately let out an enraged roar as a Law Domain light screen burst forth from his body.
However, Lei Jun’s figure immediately appeared in front of him. The former’s fist smashed through the air, the power of the Law Domain surging out along with rumbling thunder to stop old Xuan.
After the earlier revelation, Lei Jun knew that he would no longer be accepted in the Cangxuan Sect. Therefore, his stance now naturally leaned towards the Sacred Palace. He knew that he would only be able to retreat unscathed when the Sacred Palace side won.
“Lei Jun, you traitor!” Old Xuan fumed as he launched a ruthless attack.
Lei Jun remained expressionless as he operated the Law Domain to block Old Xuan’s onslaught.
The other top experts moved back when they saw the fight erupt between these two parties. They evidently intended to continue sitting on the mountain and watch the tigers fight. Given the current situation, although the internal balance of the Cangxuan Sect was destroyed, the Sacred Palace would still have to pay a heavy price to completely destroy them.
When that happened, the Sacred Palace would be weakened, making it difficult for them to maintain a strong position.
“Sheng Yuan, if you want to kill me to display your power, you have overestimated yourself!” thundered sect master Qing Yang thundered as a greenish-blue Law Domain light barrier shrouded his body. He and Sheng Yuan were both practitioners of the Law Domain stage. As such, it wouldn’t be easy for Sheng Yuan to get rid of him so easily.
Palace master Sheng Yuan’s mouth curved in a strange manner when he heard this.
“Is that so?”
A wisp of golden smoke suddenly rose from the top of palace master Sheng Yuan’s head. After a brief moment, a tiny noise sounded from the smoke as a golden flame swiftly formed above his head.
The entire world seemed to freeze when the golden flame emerged. As golden fire burned, space around it crumbled constantly like a burning oil painting.
An indescribable surge of energy was born.
The golden flame seemed capable of incinerating everything, and nothing could block its path.
The golden flame was immediately reflected in the eyes of sect master Qing Yang as well as the top experts from the other sects as looks of indescribable disbelief crossed their faces.
“That’s, that's the flame of the Saint?!”
A moment later, numerous cries of shock rang out.
“Sheng Yuan has reached the Saint stage?!”
Cultivators above the Law Domain were called Saints, and the Saint stage was the highest cultivation realm in this world!
However, ever since the birth of Cangxuan Heaven, patriarch Cang Xuan had been the only true Saint stage practitioner. But now, it appeared that palace master Sheng Yuan had also ascended to this godly realm?!
Amidst countless shocked gasps, palace master Sheng Yuan extended two fingers. The golden flame pierced through space and appeared directly at his fingertips. He then pointed to the blue-green Law Domain barrier that enveloped sect master Qing Yang’s body.
As the golden flame swayed, the Law Domain that should have been indestructible in the eyes of ordinary people was instantly incinerated like a piece of paper.
“Qing Yang, time to join your master.....”
A sinister smile formed on palace master Sheng Yuan’s lips. The golden flame on his fingertips directly pierced through the Law Domain and stabbed towards sect master Qing Yang.
If the golden flame landed, even Law Domain experts would be burned to nothingness.
Because it was the flame of a Saint.
