Heaven’s Devourer - Chapter 1440: Star Penetrator Polymer Design
Chapter 1440: Star Penetrator Polymer Design
Perhaps outside, this level of attack would not be a threat to the Chakravarti Ghostly King.
But here in Maelstrom Silver Dagger Sphere, things were different.
More importantly, Chakravarti Ghostly King was not expecting, at the cusp of his success, to be savagely attacked by his pursuing son!
This had entirely different implications.
Such an attack caused more emotional devastation to the Chakravarti Ghostly King’s heart than the physical damage to him!
Besides, Wu Yu’s punch was not at all weak! Chakravarti Ghostly King wanted to ignore it, to get the Rainbow Pearl, but he had underestimated Wu Yu. Against his hasty and defenseless stance, the punch sent him flying past the Rainbow Pearl!
The Lasting Blood heavenly rule invaded his body, causing his flesh to wither.
Of course, even harder to bear was the emotional betrayal! He turned around, staring at Wu Yu with bulging eyes. He looked on the verge of exploding.
“You dare attack me? You SWINE!” Chakravarti Ghostly King raged. He had no time to deal with Wu Yu right now. He turned back to the Rainbow Pearl, but it had already vanished in an instant.
Wu Yu had been occupied with the attack as well, and had lost sight of the Rainbow Pearl.
Looking around, there was no trail to be seen. It was impossible to chase it.
However, at least Chakravarti Ghostly King had not been able to get it. He had been so close.
Now, no one had it. And so there was a chance.
To be so close to the treasure, only to be foiled by his own son, Chakravarti Ghostly King was in a state of mind that few had seen before. He was even in the mood to kill Wu Yu!
“Die!” He sent a sweeping slap towards Wu Yu’s temple, packed with alarming heavenly rule power.
Wu Yu knew that he would try to kill him, and so he immediately fled. In truth, he was not Chakravarti Ghostly King’s match, no matter how much suppression was being applied.
“Young palace master, I am sorry I could not get you the treasure, but at least I stopped him.” Wu Yu said, coming towards Qin Yunling. He knew that she would be angry. After all, Wu Yu had not helped to stop Bright Star Ghostly King, but had acted alone instead. But at this time, Chakravarti Ghostly King looked ready to kill his own son.
And Wu Yu’s words expressed his intention to chase it for Qin Yunling.
True or false, the result was clear. Wu Yu had disrupted Chakravarti Ghostly King, and prevented him from getting the Rainbow Pearl. Qin Yunling knew that even if she had chased, she might not have been able to do it. Although they had been fortunate enough to encounter the treasure, but with Chakravarti Ghostly King around, they had been lucky enough not to let him have it.
Therefore, Qin Yunling reacted quickly. As Wu Yu came running to her for help, she immediately appeared before him, arms spread open. This way, Chakravarti Ghostly King would have to hurt her if he wanted to deal with Wu Yu.
For any Hell master, they had to treat these eternal devil emperor descendants with some measure of caution. They could snatch treasures from them, but attacking these eternal devil emperor descendants? Out of the question! After all, even if they were competing for a treasure, there were rules to the game. If they attacked and hurt Qin Yunling right now, Chakravarti Ghostly King and his lackeys would not live long.
Therefore, as towering as his rage was, he hurriedly pulled back upon seeing Qin Yunling!
“Young palace master, I will teach my son a lesson. I ask that the young palace master not interfere. If I hurt you by accident, I cannot bear responsibility.” Chakravarti Ghostly King said tersely, struggling to suppress the anger within.
Qin Yunling said thinly: “I have already said that White-Eyed Ghostly Lord is working for me. He has worked hard for me, and naturally I will protect him. You dare to touch him? Try me!”
Chakravarti Ghostly King’s head almost exploded from frustration. As for Wu Yu, he was hiding behind Qin Yunling, a gloating smirk on his face. Chakravarti Ghostly King dearly wanted to tear this son limb from limb.
“Father, don’t blame me. Young palace master is so nice to me, of course I have to do my best for her. It’s just business, I hope you forgive me.” Wu Yu said in a sing-song way.
Chakravarti Ghostly King took a deep breath. At this time, Bright Star Ghostly King had also come forward with soothing pleas for Chakravarti Ghostly King to curb his anger. He did not attack Qin Yunling impulsively, but his eyes had already turned cold. “Unless you can leave Astral Hell in time and hide forever after this thing ends, think well about your fate. As a ghostly immortal, you must look a bit further, not just at what is before you.”
The meaning of his words ran deep. They were actually a threat. If Wu Yu was really White-Eyed Ghostly Lord, he would have been afraid of his father. But he wasn’t. And so he wasn’t. His response to Chakravarti Ghostly King’s threat was a cheeky chuckle.
“Hell master, let’s go.”
Bright Star Ghostly King knew that staying here would only infuriate him further. They should leave quickly. They could feel that White-Eyed Ghostly Lord had changed now.
“I’ll remember this.” Chakravarti Ghostly King looked at him again. And with a final harrumph, he turned and left at speed with Bright Star Ghostly King. Clearly they were off to chase the Rainbow Pearl.
After they left, Wu Yu was still smirking. Qin Yunling turned around and fixed him with an icy look from her purple eyes. “White-Eyed Ghostly Lord, don’t think I will thank you for what happened just now. Let me warn you. If you act out of hand again the next time, I won’t forgive you, even if it turns out well! Understood? If I tell you to stop someone, you stop them!”
Wu Yu wiped his smile away, nodding: “Got it. Don’t worry, young palace master. Although the situation was special just now, but I was indeed wrong not to follow your orders. I assure you there won’t be another time.”
Right now he had thoroughly offended Chakravarti Ghostly King, and so actually he was not afraid that she would expose his murder of Dong Shen Ghostly King. He could leave anytime. But he still acknowledged Qin Yunling’s power. With her, others would not dare to attack him, and the identity of White-Eyed Ghostly Lord could remain a little longer. Perhaps he would have more chances at the pearl. Otherwise, it would be difficult to get close to the pearl without a backer, as everyone would target him first.
“However, you’re really a brazen one. You even dare to offend your own father. Admirable.” Qin Yunling said with a flash of surprise in her alluring eyes.
Wu Yu grinned. “If young palace master were me, you would know why I did what I did.”
He was referring to Chakravarti Ghostly King’s bias for Amethyst-Eyed Ghostly Lord.
“What do you want to do afterwards?”
Wu Yu replied. “Of course I will chase after the young palace master, and work for you. To be able to follow by the side of such a beauty, at least I will be happy. As the saying goes: If I should die beneath a peony flower, still I will chase skirts as a ghost.”
“You dare to tease me?” Qin Yunling glared at him, her scandalized expression cute. But she had other thoughts. She thought to herself: “This guy is too naive. I only want your power in this Maelstrom Silver Dagger Sphere. Back at the Qin Sha Forgiveness Sect Heavenly Palace, what is a mere ghostly lord to me?”
She could not bring Wu Yu to high places. If not for the rules of this game, Wu Yu would not even be qualified to talk to her.
Of course, she would not say this. Instead, she replied: “Seems like the Rainbow Pearls here are not like the Prismatic Thunderball’s. They fly everywhere. I wonder if there is some pattern to it. Otherwise, we can only try our luck and fly about?”
Wu Yu was thinking about this as well. He said: “I feel that there has to be some pattern. It’s an epochal immortal design, after all. A blind luck test doesn’t seem to be very meaningful at all. That Jade Emperor would probably not make such a meaningless game.”
“Then what do you think the pattern is?”
“If I knew, I would not be standing here.”
“Foul mouth, shut up and think!”
Wu Yu turned towards the silver dagger maelstrom.
Actually, he was thinking as well. If he took out his own Rainbow Pearl, would he attract the others?
“The only one with a Rainbow Pearl here is me. Gu Huo Immortal Lord and Mo Yuji can’t even get in.”
“I wonder how many ghostly immortals there are outside now. Would they be able to break the 100,000 Layers Vortex Design and create even more chaos here?”
“Probably not. The 100,000 Layers Vortex Design is so small, not like the Astral Guardian Field’s huge area. Even if there are many ghostly immortals, there would not be many who could get near the vortexes who are capable of attacking it.”
What Wu Yu did not know was that outside the vortexes, there were many, many more ghostly immortals than he imagined!
As another month passed, Monsoon Star’s vicinity was choked with billions of ghostly immortals, and the number continued to increase. Many of them were ghostly lords. With so many people, perhaps even the immortal lords were disguised among their midst.
Although there were many people, but things were relatively quiet. Compared to the chaos before, there was some order here. Through the ranks of the crowd, one could see that there was a gigantic funnel-shaped immortal design outside the 100,000 Layers Vortex Design!
The funnel’s tip was sharp as a needle, and aimed straight at the 100,000 Layers Vortex Design. As for the funnel portion, it was continuing to expand. It was as if all the ghostly immortals were continuing to expand this thing. As time passed, the funnel was already even larger than Monsoon Star itself, and still growing. All of the ghostly immortals were currently gathered around this funnel.
“We need to enlarge the Star Penetrator Polymer Design by another three times! Then it will be able to harness all of our strength into one point. That way, we can easily join forces and rip this 100,000 Layers Vortex Design apart!”
The one who spoke was a ghostly king, who was at the center, with other ghostly kings. They did not align with any Hell masters, but acted individually. That was why they had been left outside.
