The True Celestial Alice!

Except for the stellar light that provided a sense of direction; the entire hall was covered with thick plumes of debris, filled with brilliant flares that appeared and disappeared just as suddenly as deafening sounds of endless explosive impacts could be heard resounding throughout the gigantic hall!

The Tribute Heavenly King flashed his Dark Catastrophe as he flanked the Goddess Celestial Alice and the Goddess Isa aside, sending them scurrying backward!

He said coldly, “So is that all you got? Alice? Isa? I am so disappointed. I am expecting more from you.”

With another move, he had raised his sword to exchange fourteen explosive strokes with Alice and Isa again before he sent them slamming onto the floor while kicking the Golden Kirin Cub out of the way!

The Golden Kirin Cub moaned softly as it hit the ground with a slamming impact before it remained motionless! 

Alice grasped her abdomen as she coughed out blood as she tried to pick herself up, “You…have already attained the Seventh…Immortal Ranking!”

The Goddess Isa was extremely pale and before she could pick herself up, the Tribute Heavenly King had dragged her up by her golden hair as he laughed icily, “For the past ten thousand years, you are not the only ones that have shown improvements. Even though we are all at the Seventh Immortal Rank but there is still a huge gap between us. This is the difference between a first generation immortal and a second generation immortal!” 

Alice’s wrist was trembling but she mustered all her strength to swing her Astronomic Eulogy at the throat of the Tribute Heavenly King while Isa lifted her Divine Constellation upward at the same time too!

The Tribute Heavenly King raised his divine sword to send the divine swords of Alice and Isa flying out of the way as he mused, “You may be thinking how brilliant you are in luring me out of the way of your group. However, the truth is that I am unwilling to let the other Heavenly Kings know of my true strength. While I sit on the fence, I am going to have my fun in watching the Jade Emperor and the rest tear themselves apart.”

He raised Alice and forcefully kissed her on her lips and did the same to Isa as well, “I am short of a heart of an immortal practitioner of the Seventh Immortal Rank to attain the Eighth Immortal Rank…”

Alice screamed, “You…are a Dark Immortal!”

The Tribute Heavenly King grinned coldly, “Isn’t it too late to realize it now?”

Isa kicked the Tribute Heavenly King in fury, “Don’t touch me!”

The Tribute Heavenly King laughed coldly, “The two of you are the most beautiful maidens in the Immortal Realm. It will be such a pity to kill the both of you. Unfortunately only one of you can live to join my Unification Plan and the other must die. The first one that begs me will live and get to Dual Celestial with me. So Alice and Isa, quickly decide on your fate now!”

Isa was startled as she gasped breathlessly, “The Unification Plan? You…are with the Ascetic Heavenly King and the…Dark Primordial Heavenly King?” 

The Tribute Heavenly King laughed, “I am not only with the Ascetic Heavenly King and the Dark Primordial Heavenly King, I am also with the Lord of the Enigma Chaos and that is not all; I am also their overlord! You may address me as the Dark Catastrophe Emperor!”

He gripped Alice’s chin to kiss her violently while moving his hands into her bodice, “Alice, surrender your soul and body to me! Do you know that I have covet you since the beginning!”

Alice struggled weakly as she caught hold of, “I won’t…yield! Kill me!”

Isa kept completely quiet as she was completely disgusted by him. She was trembling nonstop as she muttered wordlessly, “Yi Ping…I will not surrender to anyone but you…”

The Dark Catastrophe Emperor smiled coldly, “How strong willed. Then don’t blame me Alice. Why is Isa keeping so quiet? Are you shy? Or are you secretly hoping to become my chosen?”

Isa willed her last remaining strength as she zapped him with a blue streak of thunderous lightning that exploded resoundingly as she gasped, “Fat hope! I will…sooner die than be defiled by you!”

The Dark Catastrophe Emperor mused wryly, not affected by the lightning attack. “Your feeble struggle is futile. It is just the two of you. I will break your golden bodies and consume your souls…”

All of a sudden a dark figure was flung from within the dusty debris and was slammed onto the floor with an incredible thunderous impact!

The dark figure landed next to the Dark Catastrophe Emperor and was recognized as the Lord of the Enigma Chaos who crumbled motionless on the ground!

And another figure in white flashed angrily from the thick smog. It was Yi Ping!

He shouted angrily, “Let them go! At once!”

Alice and Isa were startled as they cried out at the same time, “Yi…Yi Ping!”

The Dark Catastrophe Emperor was startled as he stared at the motionless Lord of the Enigma Chaos, “What…the…”

Before he could recover from his astonishment, Yi Ping had already drawn his swords on him at an incredible speed that sent him flying backward to slam upside down on the wall with a thunderous impact!

As the Dark Catastrophe Emperor shook himself up from the surprise attack to stare angrily at his attacker, Alice and Isa had already picked up their divine swords as they leaned onto Yi Ping! 

The Goddess Celestial Alice looked at lovely dovely at Yi Ping, “You are here!”

The joy in her eyes was unmistakable! 

The Goddess Isa was equally elated as she leaned intimately with her bosoms on Yi Ping’s left arm, “I know that you will surely come in my darkness hour of need…”

Her eyes were filled with deep moving passions as she looked passionately at him! 

Yi Ping replied softly, “I am not so far away. I have heard your cries, Isa. I am sorry that I have come late. I will avenge your honor for you…”

The Goddess Celestial Alice murmured softly too, “And for my honor as well…”

Yi Ping nodded as he tightened his grip on his divine swords in teething rage. It was because for an unknown reason, hurting Alice brought an unspeakable fuming rage in his soul. It was as though he could feel the Dark Chaos Lord in him, reprimanding him of his failure to protect her!

And his failure to protect Alice brought a double guilt in him because Alice was the one that had enlightened him, unsealed the Celestial Alice of the Dark Chaos Lord for him and she had also given his group the precious Negative Core Divine Pills so that they could elevate their attainment as True Celestials!

The Dark Catastrophe Emperor hummed coldly as he flexed his
