Chapter 1240 – Patch after Patch…
Such an intense tremor caused the entire land to shake and show signs of crumbling. The experts on the Holy Land’s side hurriedly soared into the sky, distancing several tens of zhang away before regaining their stability.
When they looked down again, a huge piece of the land which they had been standing on earlier had already collapsed.
On the allied army’s side, the ground stabilized after a period of shaking. But on the other side, the tremors showed no signs of relenting at all. With Young Master Jun’s temper, how would he possibly stop at just that?
Moreover, there were still over 4,000 Saint Emperors hoping to blast a path open! If he went ahead to forcefully stop the ground from collapsing, the one who would suffer the most would be himself!
He might as well borrow the strength of this huge force and combine it with his Power of Earth, pushing this entire patch of land to collapse together!
This was a classic case of rising with the tide, ah! This was a situation that Young Master Jun could not have wished for even in his dreams; now that it had happened in front of his eyes, he wouldn’t be Jun Moxie if he didn’t grab hold of the chance…
On the side of the Outsiders, the army had already begun charging at full force at the command of Chuangshang Beidao. The 4,000 death knights had prepared themselves to blast a path through and end the war, while the main army had also followed behind with invigorated fervor.
All of them were incredibly excited that they were finally going to charge into the Xuan Xuan Continent…
With their confidence soaring, all of them were running forward with all their strength.
By the time they realized that something was wrong—the ones running in front had already crossed into the edge of that dark hole. With their momentum, it was basically impossible to stop.
Many of them were charging forward, hooting excitedly, when they suddenly discovered that there was nothing under their feet. They even managed to take many steps forward through the air because of the momentum, before realizing what had happened. Then, with their arms and feet flailing desperately, they dropped downwards, shrieking loudly. The intense excitement turned into extreme fear in a mere instant…
The people who were slightly behind naturally managed to discover the anomaly in front, and they hurriedly stopped their feet. Those at the front also howled loudly, informing the people behind them.
But in such a chaotic situation, who could really hear what the people at the front were saying? The army behind had already begun to charge with full force, rushing forward with a momentum like a mighty ocean. Such a force was not something that could be stopped simply because they said so!
And so, those in the front could only scream helplessly!
Even as they shrieked, they plunged directly into the black hole like dumplings dropped into a pot of boiling water. Such a sight was truly something to behold!
Many people forcefully stopped, refusing to move forward no matter what. However, what happened next was that they were directly trampled by the stampede until even their bones were crushed.
Jun Moxie saw that the situation was so good, so he directly used the Power of Earth to push the situation further, making another patch of black hole! Another group of clueless Outsiders experts directly fell into the new hole, still screaming about murdering their enemies.
Their faces that were filled with ferocity instantly turned into endless confusion before being fully painted with terror…
One had to say that this combination of the Flame of Primal Chaos and the Power of Earth was truly perfect!
This immensely powerful effect was definitely not as simple as one plus one.
In addition to being speed buffed by the Nine Nether Fourteenth Young Master, the Flame of Primal Chaos had been burning for more than two hours. Truthfully, the ground had already burned through several thousand zhang of land! In such circumstances, using the Power of Earth together, directly multiplied the effects numerous folds! Furthermore, there was even the explosive force generated by 4,000 peak Saint Emperors!
If the Flame of Primal Chaos had not burned there for such a long time, with Jun Moxie’s abilities, it would already be his limit to create a hole of a few hundred zhang deep. And such a hole would never be as wide as this one.
If that was the case, the enemy experts would not die at all. At most, they would only need to spend a bit more effort to crawl back out.
But this hole now was several thousand zhang deep… also, their own comrades were falling down atop of them like heavy stones…
The rate of survival…
En, perhaps if they burnt incense by the ton and prayed to the gods while offering up their next tens of lifetimes in servitude to the gods, they might have a tiny shred of hope.
Apart from that, it was pretty much hopeless…
Chuangshang Beidao stared at the scene before him with wide eyes and open mouth, unable to process the scenario. Everything happening now seemed to be a dream! But… even the most terrifying nightmare didn’t seem to be this cruel!
It wasn’t just the Outsiders’ side. Everyone on the battlefield had practically been stunned into wooden statues!
Jun Moxie spammed the Power of Earth freely, enjoying himself to his heart’s content. The ground had become exceedingly unstable after the combined self detonation force of 4,000 peak Saint Emperors. With every wave of his hand, a patch of black hole several tens of zhang wide would appear on the ground. These holes were not very useful against the Saints and Saint Emperors that were quite some distance away from the main hole. However, against the normal Outsiders soldiers below Spirit Xuan, they all fell into these holes like dumplings.
Patch after patch!
Jun Moxie waved his hands casually and recited a poem happily: “One patch, two patch, three, four patch. Five patch, six patch, seven, eight patch, nine patch, ten patch, eleven…”
On the side, the Nine Nether Fourteenth Young Master looked at him with an expression as though he was looking at a monster. Disregarding the strange looks, he smiled casually and added the last sentence. “All disappearing and falling into the black hole!”
Turning around, he asked with a proud expression. “Fourteenth bro, how was this poem of mine?”
The Nine Nether Fourteenth Young Master widened his eyes, staring at Jun Moxie as though he was looking at a freak of nature. Then, he turned and looked at the hellish situation at the bottom. Opening and closing his mouth repeatedly, he was unable to say a single word. After a long time, he finally shook his head and sighed. “The world calls me a Devil of Calamity, a murderous madman. But after looking at you, this Young Master truly feels that I’m just a frog at the bottom of the well! Today, I’ve finally seen just how wide the heavenly river is… This Young Master feels utterly ashamed of my inadequacy and willingly accepts my inferiority!”
In a somewhat dispirited manner, he added: “Compared to you, what qualifications do I have to be called a Devil of Calamity…”
“You’ve really over praised me! Brother Fourteenth is truly too kind with your words.” Jun Moxie laughed happily and shook his head humbly. “Truthfully, I feel that… I haven’t done well enough.”
Hearing this, the Nine Nether Fourteenth Young Master rolled his eyes and turned away. Gritting his teeth, he thought:
Compared to this fellow, I seem like an incredibly kind soul! I would be a kindly Saint that’d cultivated atop a mountain, set apart from the world for a hundred years! F*ck!
On the ground, the number one expert of the Outsiders, Chuangshang Beidao, suddenly howled with pain and violently spat out a large mouthful of fresh blood that soared tens of zhang through the air. Clutching his chest, he roared: “Bully! Bully! Bastard! I-I-I-I…. I-I-I…”
Seized with anger, this number one expert of the Outsiders was unable to complete even a single sentence. His hands trembled intensely as if he were suffering a stroke….
One could not blame Chuangshang Beidao for being unable to control himself at this point. The mental impact that he’d suffered was truly too heavy. In just a swift instance, he’d lost over 100,000 soldiers… all of them falling into holes they would never come out from.
The Outsiders army did have huge numbers of soldiers, but they couldn’t just have over 100,000 soldiers die just like that too! Especially since those 100,000 soldiers had not even managed to kill a single enemy on the other side… this was simply too… difficult to accept…
Right now, Chuangshang Beidao was like a tiny leaf being tossed around in a windstorm, or a frail and pitiful girl who had just been treated roughly by a hundred large dudes taking their turns to abuse her…
“Ai… that fellow wouldn’t have ruptured a blood vessel in his brain right…” Jun Moxie looked at Chuangshang Beidao from far away and sighed in a sympathetic manner. “How pitiful!”
Hearing this, the Nine Nether Fourteenth Young Master suddenly felt an impulse to spit out a mouthful of blood as well.
He’d seen his share of people gloating over others’ misfortune, or cats crying for the rats they killed.
But this fellow…
This fellow had wiped out the other party’s 20,000 Saint Emperors and conveniently took out at least 100,000 Outsiders soldiers! And he did not lose even a single hair on his side. Yet, he could still… still… do that?
The Nine Nether Fourteenth Young Master finally truly understood the meaning of the phrase: Only when knowledge was truly needed would one realize that the books they’d read were too few!
At this point, he suddenly realized that he didn’t know any appropriate words that could be used to describe this fellow who was laughing and smiling as widely as a hippopotamus…
Everybody called this Young Master an evil demon, but even all the people that this Young Master had killed in this entire lifetime of several thousand years was fewer than the number that he’d killed in just this one hour…
Wu… compared to him, I’m truly too pure…
What did the word despicable mean? What did the word shameless mean? Today, he’d finally witnessed the true standard of those words!
The entire battlefield suddenly became completely silent until the sound of a pin drop could be heard!
Whether it was the continent’s allied army, or the Outsiders army, everyone was practically holding their breaths. Their eyes were twitching as they stared at the gigantic crater in the middle that’d widened by at least one fold! The menacing black hole, seemed to be still emanating darkness… it was like an incomparably huge demon’s mouth, gaping greedily…
“Change a direction! KILL KILL KILL!!!” Chuangshang Beidao’s voice sounded as though he was crying. It felt as if he was going to spit out a mouthful of blood with every word. “The remaining 10,000 soldiers, charge forward! Kill them all! KILL KILL KILL…”
The remaining 10,000 soldiers, naturally referred to their final trump card. The 10,000 plus true Saints and Saint Emperor experts. Those 10,000 experts quickly adjusted their minds and turned towards another direction. Although they needed to detour for at least several hundred li, it was still better than standing there like idiots.
Even if all of them died on the battlefield on the other side, it would at least be of more value than being scared to death while standing on their side…
After sustaining a disastrous loss of over 100,000 frontline soldiers, the Outsiders main army recharged their battle will and followed after the experts to take the detour.
The only thing was that the attack this time was much more subdued. The excited and highly charged morale from before had already disappeared completely…
As for Chuangshang Beidao himself, he had joined up with the other six Saint Monarch level experts on the Outsiders’ side, charging upwards fiercely like rockets towards the position where Jun Moxie and the Nine Nether Fourteenth Young Master were!
