Jiang Chen also told Yang Bufan that the Heaven Devouring Devil Ape already reached the peak of late Immortal Venerable realm. The fact that he had broken the imprisonment of Yang Junlong indicated that he was no longer a peerless Venerable, but a formidable half-step Sovereign.
The thought of this made Yang Bufan’s forehead drenched with cold sweat. No one in Great Qian Empire could stop a mighty half-step Sovereign even if they combined all of their forces, unless Xiao Wangqing showed up, but how could they place this burden on Xiao Wangqing?
The emergence of the Heaven Devouring Devil Ape was the sign of the end for the whole Great Qian Empire. That ape was a cruel and bloodthirsty living spirit. It would shed tremendous blood in the empire. Considering the deep hatred it had for Yang Junlong, it will most likely retaliate by killing everyone in Great Qian Empire.
“What’s the matter?” Sensing the severity of the matter, Dragon Shisan asked.
“Great Qian Empire is in grave danger. In the past, the old ancestor had imprisoned a Heaven Devouring Devil Ape in the depths of Genius Prefecture. It’s very likely that it has broken through to half-step Sovereign realm now and is about to break past the barrier. I’m afraid that the joint strength of my father, grandfather and even the Supreme Elder won’t be able to suppress the devil ape,” replied Yang Bufan.
At this point in time, he no longer had to hide this fact. In fact, it wasn’t necessary to conceal this matter. He hadn’t told anyone about it before because he hadn’t thought that it was important.
“Let’s go together and find out,” said Dragon Shisan.
“Monkey, you guys don’t have to go. You won’t be able to deal with the Heaven Devouring Devil Ape. Your presence there will only be pointless. I must return now to inform my father and the others about the truth. Demobilize the Genius Prefecture immediately. Staying alive is the priority now.”
Yang Bufan spoke. Now that the Great Qian Empire was facing a huge crisis, nothing was worth more than their lives. The existence of the Heaven Devouring Devil Ape was virtually a secret. Yang Bufan needed to inform Yang Yu so that they could come up with a good plan to deal with the devil ape before it starts to wreak havoc on the empire.
“No. You can’t allow a devil ape to destroy the entire empire. Don’t worry, I’m capable in dealing with the Heaven Devouring Devil Ape. There are two noble bloodlines in the ancient ape race. One was the Battle Saint Ape and the other was the Heaven Devouring Devil Ape. The Battle Saint Ape is the greatest bane of the Heaven Devouring Devil Ape. The former’s bloodline can greatly suppress the bloodline of the Heaven Devouring Devil Ape. Also, I happen to have the complete bloodline of the Battle Saint Ape in my body. And now that I’ve encountered a Heaven Devouring Devil Ape, how can I miss such a great opportunity?” said Dragon Shisan.
His Fiery Golden Eyes were sparkling. He definitely wasn’t making a reckless move by going into Genius Prefecture. He felt that this was, perhaps, a huge chance for him. Qi Jin was going to confront him tomorrow and the Heaven Devouring Devil Ape had appeared today. Could it not be a chance?
“What monkey said is right. The Battle Saint Ape is indeed the biggest natural enemy of the Heaven Devouring Devil Ape. Given our current situation, I’m afraid that monkey is really indispensable if we are to deal with the Heaven Devouring Devil Ape. We’ll go together. We can’t stand idly by when Great Qian Empire is in trouble,” said Tyrant.
“That’s right. Tyrant has the God Trembling Monument with him, which can play a huge role at the most critical moment. Don’t delay any further, let’s go now.” Han Yan stood up.
Yang Bufan clasped his fists at them and led the lot back to Great Qian Empire.
Dragon Shisan, Han Yan, Tyrant and the others followed suit. This matter would determine the survival of Great Qian Empire. It was a compelling obligation to any one of them.
Back in Genius Prefecture of Great Qian Empire!
Currently, Genius Prefecture was plunged into an unprecedented turmoil. Thick smoke was billowing from the forbidden land in the distance. A loud sound shook the entire prefecture from time to time.
An invisible pressure had spread overhead, giving everyone a sense of unpleasantness.
Black fog was exiting from that patch of void. The crack in the space was getting bigger, looking as though the entire void was going to explode at any moment.
Within the void were the Old Emperor and two Supreme Elders. They were the experts who normally never show up under normal circumstances. There were a total of three late Immortal Venerables, six intermediate Immortal Venerables and a few dozen early Immortal Venerables.
They were the true forces of Great Qian Empire. All of them had emerged to deal with the current crisis ahead.
Under the lead of the Old Emperor, all Immortal Venerables did their best to strike out countless divine light towards the line of cracks, attempting to force the living spirit back into the void.
“What’s that thing inside? It feels horrifying. Despite the joint efforts of all the Immortal Venerables of the empire, it doesn’t seem enough to suppress it.”
“I have no idea. This place has been forbidden for a long time. All along, anyone who went in there died. Only Jiang Chen was able to walk out of it alive. Perhaps Jiang Chen knew what actually is inside it.”
“Currently, Jiang Chen is missing in action. Even if he has returned, I doubt he can be of any help. Even the Old Emperor and the other Immortal Venerables can’t suppress that thing. Jiang Chen’s presence will be pointless.”
“I have a strong feeling that Genius Prefecture is facing its most dangerous situation.”
Innumerable disciples were hovering outside the zone. The Old Emperor had given the orders that none of them were allowed to get close to the zone as it was too dangerous. The Old Emperor must have known how strong the thing inside was because his face was filled with concern.
“Old Emperor, what’s exactly that thing inside? Why is it so powerful?” An elder asked.
“It wouldn’t hurt to tell you all now. A Heaven Devouring Devil Ape has been personally imprisoned by the old ancestor, Yang Junlong, in the past in it. No one had thought that not only did this devil ape not die, his cultivation base grew stronger over time. It seems like he’s going to break the seal in no time. I’m afraid that its current cultivation base has surpassed any one of us.”
The Old Emperor spoke truthfully, telling everything he knew about the Heaven Devouring Devil Ape to the others. In the entire Great Qian Empire, he was the only one who knew about this secret, however he hadn’t regarded it as something important because he believed in Yang Junlong’s means and thought that the devil ape would never appear again. Many years had passed and he had forgotten about this matter, until today, when the Heaven Devouring Devil Ape had grown to the point that it was powerful enough to break the seal.
The Old Emperor couldn’t remain calm. He was almost sure that the devil ape hated his Yang Family to the very core. Great Qian Empire would face an unimaginable end once the beast rushed out from its imprisonment.
