The Secret Lore of the Immortals
The Jade Emperor was fighting furiously alone against Old Man Xuantian the Dark Primordial Heavenly King and Yun Dingzhong the Great Ascetic Heavenly King at the same time.
Their exchanges were so fierce that none of the others could really approach them as they crashed onto the monument walls and leaving behind structural damages!
Lele, Lie Qing, Asura, the Celestial Liege, the Martial Sage, Yi Si and Ye Ling were not able to aid the Jade Emperor as they were fighting against four other Heavenly Kings at the same time!
Very quickly, Ye Ling and the Martial Sage had sustained serious injuries and had collapsed on the ground as ripples of martial force exploded around them!
The Martial Sage was trembling as he coughed out blood, “My golden body was broken so quickly. I am such a disgrace…Xian’Er…”
The Celestial Liege shouted, “Ye Ling!”
But because of this distraction, a Heavenly King seized the opportunity to deliver a crashing blow on his left shoulder that sent him flunking backward like an arrow!
This Heavenly King was actually the Nirvana Heavenly Queen who hummed coldly, “So this is your Celestial Force? Compare to the Jade Emperor, it is too puny!”
The Celestial Liege coughed out blood and knew that his left shoulder was broken by her hit!
Because of this, their tight formation was breeched and they were in danger of being overwhelmed in the next instant!
Lie Qing gasped but she was being flanked by two Heavenly Kings and was barely able to fend for herself!
Even the Goddess Asura was on the defensive against the two other Heavenly Kings who switched between Lele, Lie Qing, Yi Si and her!
Lie Qing knew that they were now facing four Heavenly Kings and they were in mortal dangers. All the others were engaged and even Yi Ping was running to and fro to assist the others!
She could only shout panicky to Lele, “Now is not the time to be on the defensive!”
Lele gritted her teeth as she evaded out of the way of a Heavenly King before she raised her shimmering Divine Echo to implode the vicinity with several energy projectiles, “I am trying…”
Yi Si whispered, “Mother, don’t worry about me. I am just a burden…”
Lele beamed with tears, “No, you are not!”
One of the four Heavenly Kings, the Heavenly Pagoda King said. “We are not as malevolent as the other Heavenly Kings or else we would have wiped out your group. Be wise and give up your futile resistances. We are only opposing the Jade Emperor for breaking the sacred agreement…”
Asura hummed coldly as she lifted her Symphony of Destiny to strike him but he caught her blow with both his hands crossed over his head!
This gesture caused the Heavenly Pagoda King to bend his knees as his surroundings exploded with both their divine forces!
But the Heavenly Pagoda King was otherwise unharmed as he cursed, “Asura! Why are you on the side of the Jade Emperor? Have you forgotten that we are on the same side previously? You, who are one of the hundred and eight holy of holiness is destined to inherit the mantle of the Great Goddess, how dare you raise your weapon against the Kings of Heavens? Are you mad?!!”
Asura replied coldly, “Yes I am indeed mad. I want to fight all of you from the very start but the Jade Emperor has stopped me. I have bade my time ever since. Just because the Jade Emperor broke the sacred love and have loved my sister, you want to remove him? What about the chaos that ensured after the ousting of the Jade Emperor? Or do you want me to say that all of you are only concern who is the one that should be the next emperor of the Immortal Realm?”
The Heavenly Pagoda King was startled, “The Regalia Fairy is your sister? But she is just a lowly immortal…”
