The Powerful Collaboration
Retreat wasn’t an option for Dragon Shisan. Although he didn’t have the slightest certainty in dealing with the Heaven Devouring Devil Ape, he knew very well that if he shrunk back now, the entire Great Qian Empire would be finished. Therefore, he must persist in stopping the Heaven Devouring Devil Ape.
As the saying went, the planning lies with men and the outcome lies with the Heavens. He had no idea what would happen today. He might fail to stop the Devil Ape and would be severely wounded as a result, which would eventually lead to the massacre and extinction of Great Qian Empire, but in any case, he had to go all out so that he wouldn’t feel any guilt.
“Since you are being so persistent, don’t blame me for being impolite.”
The Devil Ape was about to go mad. He had already given Dragon Shisan a chance, but Dragon Shisan didn’t cherish it at all. Not wanting to fight the Battle Saint Ape was one thing, the Devil Ape’s will to get rid of the Battle Saint Ape was another. Since Dragon Shisan insisted on standing in his way, there was nothing else they could talk about. Killing Dragon Shisan had become a necessity before he could annihilate this empire.
The Devil Ape thrust his palm once more, which bore endless destructive energy. Dragon Shisan’s facial expression changed slightly. His opponent, who was a half-step Sovereign, was just too powerful. If it wasn’t because of his bloodline reducing the power of his opponent by 90 percent, he would’ve fled as soon as he saw the Devil Ape, or else he would surely be killed.
“Battling Symbol Art!”
Dragon Shisan also went frenzy. He was a battle maniac. The stronger the opponent, the easier it was to ignite his battle spirit. He cast the Battle Saint Technique to the limit. An enormous Battling Symbol Art emerged and radiated golden light as it collided against the Devil Ape’s attack.
The sky was ripped apart. As expected, Dragon Shisan was no match for the Devil Ape, and was sent flying away once again.
This time, the shock Dragon Shisan received was even more violent compared to the previous one. He spurted out a mouthful of blood. The qi in his body began to run disorderly. Without the sturdiness of his physique and the advantage of his bloodline, he would have been killed a hundred times by that strike.
“Be careful, Brother Shisan.”
Below, Lan Lingji spoke in alarm. Tomorrow was their wedding day. Lan Lingji didn’t dare imagine what she would do if something were to happen to Dragon Shisan today.
“Not good. Dragon Shisan isn’t a match for the Heaven Devouring Devil Ape. The suppression doesn’t seem enough to offset the gap in their cultivation base.”
“Yeah. If Dragon Shisan is unable to stop the Devil Ape, our empire is surely finished. No one will be able to save us.”
“The Devil Ape hates Old Ancestor Yang Junlong to the very core. Now that he can’t find the Old Ancestor after breaking out of the imprisonment, he’s going to vent all his resentment on us.”
Each of their faces paled. Dragon Shisan was their only hope. If Dragon Shisan couldn’t save them, no one else could.
Unfortunately, Dragon Shisan didn’t seem to be in a good state. After all, the Heaven Devouring Devil Ape was just too strong.
“I have already given you the chance to leave. I never give second chances. So what if you are a Battle Saint Ape? You are still going to die in my hands in the end. After killing you, I’ll become the supreme ape in the ape race.”
The Devil Ape’s murderous intent rose. He then struck out another attack. It seemed he really wasn’t going to give Dragon Shisan any chance to survive.
“Amitabha!” At this moment, a bell-like sound rang out.
Tyrant moved. He soared into the sky like a young Buddha and stood next to Dragon Shisan. Given his current strength, standing out to fight the Heaven Devouring Devil Ape was no different than seeking death, but he also had a powerful trump card – the God Trembling Monument.
A huge blood-coloured stone tablet the size of 300 meters with mysterious runes engraved on it appeared above Tyrant’s head. Ancient qi of vicissitudes was emanated from it.
Under the control of Tyrant, it rushed forward, heading towards the Heaven Devouring Devil Ape.
When the Devil Ape saw the blood-red monument, a hint of fear was seen on his face. It was as if the monument could suppress all kinds of evil in the world and was the bane of all devils. More importantly, there seemed to be some ancient God spirit living in it that made the Devil Ape’s soul shudder.
As the Devil Ape was evil by nature, he would naturally be suppressed by the God Trembling Monument.
“Humph! Trying to use a stone table to fight me? You totally lack wisdom.”
The Devil Ape harrumphed coldly and launched a fist at the monument. He was virtually in berserk mode at this moment and would smash any obstacle in front of him. Although the monument made him feel uncomfortable, his mighty cultivation base made him powerful enough to resist it.
An ear-splitting clatter was heard when his fist hit the surface of the monument heavily. The void around was torn. In everyone’s point of view, this fist was already enough to crush anything. They had imagined that the monument would instantly turn to powder after the impact, but the reality proved them wrong. The huge monument had only been sent a couple dozen meters away. Not even a tiny crack could be seen on its surface.
“What’s this stone tablet? How can it be this solid?”
The Devil Ape looked at Tyrant with surprise. This frustrated him even more. He was supposed to carry out a massacre after walking out of the imprisonment, but he had encountered two annoying opponents, although these two have weak cultivation bases, they had means that could suppress his power.
“Haha! Good Tyrant! We should be able to deal with him now.”
Dragon Shisan laughed aloud. He had never thought that Tyrant’s monument would be this powerful. They might be able to keep the Devil Ape entangled if they joined forces.
Tyrant nodded. He didn’t rush forward to attack but only sent the monument to smash at the Devil Ape. Innumerable brilliance that shone from it spread across the sky, forming a domain. Within this domain, the Devil Ape could feel that his origin was being restrained.
As a matter of fact, the monument was a divine item, but Tyrant’s cultivation base was still still weak. Although he was able to control the monument, he was still not able to unleash the true power inside the monument, just like the Ancestral Dragon Pagoda of Jiang Chen, which was also a divine item. Owing to the low cultivation base of Jiang Chen, he was unable to display the true power of the pagoda.
