“Please Da Ding!”
Old Mrs. Gu used all her strength to wail out the last three words.
Time seemed to be frozen at this moment.
The only thing that was left was the lightning that poured down from the heavens, like a waterfall, crushing towards the ground.
In a flash of lightning.
Gu Cang Yue’s tongue burst into thunder as he slashed out with his sword, his biting sword qi destroying everything and instantly forcing Lin Shichong back.
The aftermath of the sword qi even strangled the robes on Lin Shichong’s body to the point of being mottled.
Gu Cangyue knelt down directly on one knee and plunged his sword into the ground with incomparable devotion.
He had a way to help Old Madam Gu avoid the Heavenly Punishment, and this statement was not unwarranted from the moment he showed up just now.
The Gu family had been able to become a sectarian family for a thousand years, so its heritage was not without depth.
The Gu surname, moreover, was a branch of one of the eight ancient surnames since the ancient times.
It was just that the situation far exceeded Gu Cangyue’s expectations.
He had initially expected Chen Dong and Old Madam Gu to endure the Heavenly Punishment together, and he had used a secret technique to help Old Madam Gu evade it.
But now, the sudden arrival of the Second General of the Thief Sect was causing the punishment that should have been shared by the two to be poured out on Old Madam Gu alone.
The sound of a wailing voice.
Suddenly came out from the mouth of Gu Cang Yue.
Under the prayer of devotion.
With a sudden wave of his right hand, a cluster of golden light burst forth from his sleeve robe, emanating rapidly from the tip of his hand and spreading into the air like a tidal wave.
So much so that in the white haze of lightning pouring down, a large area of radiant gold was rendered.
Accompanied by a decadent sound coming from Gu Cang Yue’s mouth.
The sound grew thicker and louder, even carrying an ancient and desolate feeling that echoed in heaven and earth.
Wusong, who was dancing in the ancient witchcraft, was shocked and looked sideways towards Gu Cangyue in disbelief.
At the same time as his gaze reached him.
In the midst of the golden light, a large censer spun up into the sky from where Gu Cangyue was.
At first the censer was extremely small, no more than the size of a walnut, but as it spun upwards, the size of the censer was rapidly enlarging in the golden light enveloping it.
It was a spectacular scene, a miracle!
So much so that Lin Shichong, after being forced back by Gu Cang Yue’s sword, witnessed this scene and was so dumbfounded that his mind went blank, forgetting to immediately pounce on Gu Cang Yue again.
“This …… is really human power?”
Lin Shichong’s eyes were wide open as he looked at the large cauldron in the golden light that had frantically surged, with a sense of unreality that was like a dream.
The same question had arisen when he was young and witnessed a Qi powerhouse.
But the state of mind then was worlds away from what it is now!
At that time, he still had the ambition and courage to move forward.
But now, as a Qigong practitioner, when he witnessed this great cauldron, he felt that the sky was so high that I was a mole!
Everything was happening in silence.
The only sound that echoed from heaven and earth was the rhythmic sounds of Wusong and Gu Cang Yue.
But it was as if the silence had been compressed into “silence” because the movement had far exceeded the capacity of this space.
But in the blink of an eye.
The cauldron had already risen to a hundred metres, spreading out above Old Lady Gu.
At the same time.
The tidal wave of lightning that poured down into the cauldron.
Countless currents, like dragons and snakes, stirred the air.
The cauldron, too, hummed and trembled.
The process lasted for three seconds.
A round ball of electricity suddenly burst out of the cauldron, just like an atomic bomb explosion, forming a mushroom cloud of lightning that spread out in all directions.
The cauldron shook violently, and a crack appeared on it.
The body of Gu Cangyue, who was kneeling down in prayer, shook and spat out a mouthful of blood, his eyes turning grey and dull.
Wusong also stopped his ancient sorcery and smiled sadly, “Time is also fate, a thousand calculations are not as good as heaven’s, one of the Nine Cauldrons, the Gu family’s lifeblood is profound!”
Before the words left his mouth, Wusong’s body trembled violently and spurted out a mouthful of blood from the sky.
Lin Shichong finally reacted and shouted miserably.
Wusong, however, was full of smiles, only his upright body was rapidly hunched over, while his body and face, moreover, were shrinking and drying up at a speed visible to the naked eye.
The impact of the thunder and the great cauldron exploded to its limit at this moment.
The sky and earth were white with countless currents, filling this side of heaven and earth.
It was as if it was a great hand, pressing down horizontally, wanting to crush everything, to pieces.
Qi energy stirred, and Gu Cangyue rushed to Old Madam Gu, forcibly dragging her onto her back despite her heavily injured and crippled body, stomping the ground with one step and rushing out in the distance like a stray arrow.
The Great Cauldron then gathered its golden light and followed after Gu Cangyue at great speed.
The rushing force of the Heavenly Punishment Thunder enveloped the heavens and the earth at this moment, and crushed down with a bang.
Lin Shichong spat out a mouthful of blood, and it felt like his entire body was going to be torn apart, so painful that he let out a miserable scream, defenceless, his eyes closed and he fell to the ground.
Wusong’s obscure and shrunken eyes, however, gazed at Chen Dong, who was always wrapped in yellow cloth talismans, and the corners of his mouth gently curled into a light smile.
“Sir is well, Wusong seeks a last chance of life for you, with your luck and fortune, you will break out of your cocoon and return as a king.”
As he murmured, Wusong used all his strength to raise his hands and form a complicated seal knot.
A word like thunder.
Whoosh whoosh whoosh ……
The yellow cloth talisman that surrounded Chen Dong’s body instantly tightened, wrapping Chen Dong tightly like a cocoon.
With that, Chen Dong’s aura completely disappeared from this piece of heaven and earth.
After doing all this, Wusong’s body also shook violently, and his body, like a wall skin, crumbled and fell off in pieces, turning into flying ashes, completely disappearing in the white electric light.
Heavenly punishment descends.
The impact of the thunder and the great cauldron caused countless lightning to rage through the long sky, like a sun stretched across the northern domain.
For a time, this brilliant and dazzling electric light was watched by people from all over the Northern Domain.
And within Zhenjiang City, it was equally white.
There were even piercing currents of electricity that shot out and landed on everyone’s body.
“Heaven, the heavenly punishment …… has descended ……”
Chen Daojun’s face was as white as paper as he staggered back a step, and at this moment it felt like his entire body was emptied of all his strength, his feet were weak and the sky was spinning.
There was silence.
Everyone witnessed the blinding white of the sky.
The 300,000 Great Snow Dragon Riders were silenced as they felt the fearful, prison like pressure, and some could not even bear it and sat down directly on the ground.
“Chen Dong ……”
Huo Zhenxiao clutched his silver dragon lance, his brows filled with depressed qi.
“Mr. Chen ……”
Jiang Sixth Master was dumbfounded, not daring to believe: “Could it be that this time, the Jiang family lost the bet?”
While the morning bell and the evening drum, the tomb guardians, at that moment, had smiled smugly.
Inside the practice room.
Zhang Wu Dao and the carpenter stopped at the same time.
The thunder pressure, which was as frightening as a prison, fell on the practice room, causing countless cracks to appear on the walls and roof.
“What’s the point of stopping? Continue!”
Xu Qingfeng squeezed out a sentence from between his teeth, waking up Zhang Wudao and the carpenter who were dazed.
Zhang Wu Dao and the old carpenter were shocked at the same time.
Xu Qingfeng hunched over, his gaze firm as he squeezed the words out of his teeth.
“The Order of the Thieving Saint!”
Three simple words, but it was as if they possessed supreme power.
Even if Zhang Wu Dao and the old carpenter were more worried, at this moment, they stared intently as they continued to chisel and carve their martial bodies.
Outside the training room.
The atmosphere was so oppressive that the 300,000 Great Snow Dragon Riders were suffocating.
“It’s just that, two points of chance in the world, one less, Daoist Monarch, we’ll stop here, no need to send it off!”
The man with the bell suddenly laughed, breaking the silence of heaven and earth.
“Do you really think my son will perish under the heavenly punishment?”
Chen Daojun’s eyes were full of resentment, and his eyes were scarlet as he stared at the bell-bearer.
The man with the bell choked on his smile, and then he said coldly, “Daojun, you are the strongest in the world, but don’t be so arrogant! Heaven has its rules and the Dao has its laws, even if you are strong, you are not strong enough to defeat the Heaven and rebel against the Dao.
“It’s lucky to have a remnant of a corpse, I’m afraid …… that he will be split by the thunder of the Heavenly Punishment and his corpse will be reduced to ashes!”
The Morning Bell and the Gravekeeper, both of whom were stirring up their Qi energy, rushed towards the outside of Zhenjiang City like lightning.
Huo Zhenxiao gave an order and immediately waved his silver dragon spear and was about to rush towards the drum bearers.
“Zhenxiao, let them go!”
Chen Daojun barked sternly, “A few heaven-fearing and dao-fearing jumpers, there’s no point in tangling with them.”
There was a pause.
Chen Daojun said in a deep voice, “300,000 Great Snow Dragon Riders will leave the city and search for the place where the Heavenly Punishment has come, to see people alive and corpses dead!”
The words were hard and cold.
Huo Zhenxiao’s body shook as he glanced at Chen Daojun in surprise.
The bell-backer’s words were sarcastic and rampant, but they were speaking of an objective fact.
Under the Heavenly Punishment, those who invoked it could really survive, no, could leave their bodies whole?
But it was only a moment of amazement, and to Chen Dong, Huo Zhenxiao was equally unjustified!
“A miracle, there should be one!”
Huo Zhenxiao tilted his head and took a deep breath, and then ordered loudly.
A fierce snowstorm.
It had never been the main tone of this cold day in the Northern Region.
Everything went up in smoke.
As the lightning that filled the sky dissipated, the sky in the distance finally gradually turned fish-belly white.
The sunlight falls on the earth, reflecting through the snow and shining brightly.
Only in this icy sky and snow was there an extra blank space that looked like a scar, greedily sucking in the sunlight.
Gu Cang Yue escaped with Old Lady Gu.
Lin Shichong fell in a pool of blood, life and death unknown.
Wusong also flew into oblivion under the heavenly punishment.
All was silent, only the wind cried and the school howled.
But in the snowless clearing, a cocoon of yellow cloth, covered with talismans, stood tall.
For a long time.
A large, bloodstained hand violently tore through the yellow cloth, exposing itself to the air in a slow, rigid movement.
The process lasted about three seconds.
With a loud bang, the large cocoon formed by the yellow cloth, exploded in response, sending pieces flying about.
Under the rising sun.
Chen Dong was kneeling on the ground with both knees, motionless.
Perhaps being sealed for too long had caused his body to stiffen.
Initially, his hands moved, and slowly his feet moved.
Gradually, his hollow, obscure eyes finally began to focus.
At this moment, Chen Dong was kneeling beneath the rising sun, his body stained with blood and his robes torn and tattered, a wretched mess!
After his eyes regained focus.
He slowly tilted his head and squinted his eyes at the blinding sunrise.
Strangely enough, both his eyes and face were covered in a layer of bewilderment and confusion.
“Who am I ……?”
A hoarse murmuring sound came out of Chen Dong’s mouth, as if countless gravel was rubbing against his throat.
A sharp pain all over his body!
It was as if he had experienced a knife chop, every inch of skin and flesh was on fire, as if it was going to tear apart.
Wusong exhausted his life and deflected all the Heavenly Punishment thunderbolts onto Old Madam Gu with his ancient witchcraft, forcing Gu Cangyue to use the Great Cauldron to resist the Heavenly Punishment thunderbolts as much as possible.
But the Heavenly Punishment was so terrifying that even though Wusong wrapped Chen Dong in a yellow cloth talisman at the most critical moment, the impact on Chen Dong was still not small.
What was even more crucial was that at this moment, Chen Dong made this murmur.
If someone was present, they would have sat on the spot and waxed.
Is this …… amnesia?
“I, who the hell is this?”
Chen Dong raised his hands and covered his head.
Compared to the sharp pain that was burning and tearing all over his body, the sharp pain that seemed to completely burst in his head as soon as he recalled it at this moment was even more excruciating.
No matter how much he recalled, his mind remained white.
But the pain, however, was magnifying rapidly!
Chen Dong let out a miserable yell and fell to the ground with a bang, his body twitching, his mouth letting out a miserable scream while his nasal pa*sages were even more violently ragged as he gasped for air.
As he rolled on the ground with his head covered, a wound continued to crumble out all over his body and blood gurgled.
The ground was rapidly becoming wet with blood.
This scene was horrifying and tragic.
In just a few breaths, Chen Dong’s body was stained with blood and he had become a bloody man.
“It hurts, it hurts so much …… me, who the hell am I?”
A miserable hissing sound echoed through this piece of heaven and earth.
The indescribable sharp pain in his head caused Chen Dong to instinctively curb the thought of continuing to ponder over his memories.
Gradually, the excruciating pain only slowly disappeared.
But this brief ordeal had used up all the strength of Chen Dong, who was already weak and badly injured.
He lay flat on his back, his body shaking with stress, his breath wavering.
He had forgotten who he was!
But what lay before him was a life and death decision!
After a few seconds of reprieve, Chen Dong forced himself to his feet, each movement slow and accompanied by tremors.
His thunder ravaged body was like a piece of charcoal that had not yet been baked and cracked.
The slightest movement made Chen Dong’s charcoal seem like it was going to completely break apart at any moment.
The instinct to survive.
At this moment, Chen Dong made the most correct decision.
It was too cold here!
It was cold to the bone!
The pain in his body was too much!
It hurts to the soul!
If you don’t leave, you’ll die!
“Phew …… phew ……”
Chen Dong dragged his tattered and bloodstained body, and every step he took seemed to use all his strength.
The fierce wind and cool snow that struck his body at this moment all made him feel like he was being added to by a million knives.
The pain was so intense that he felt the urge to fall to the ground every moment.
But in the midst of adversity, the instinct to survive can sometimes surpa*s even my own perceptions.
One step, then another ……
The steps were slow and difficult, yet they did not stop.
It was as if leaving had become the only obsession in Chen Dong’s mind, making him suffer the excruciating pain of a million knives, and still walk as if he were a walking corpse.
Under the rising sun.
His shadow on the snow, was stretched long and long.
But gradually …… walked into the wind and snow, disappearing into this open space that had been ravaged by the thunder of heavenly punishment ……
