1660 Eastern Sovereign Divine Daoist Is Pissed, Siege Divine Dao Spire
“What explanation do you want?” the Eastern Sovereign Divine Daoist said with furrowed brows.
“You tried to snatch my treasure when I was fighting those two idiots from the other universe, right? Besides, the Immortal Hall has targeted me multiple times as well. Shouldn’t you give me a satisfying explanation for that?”
“This is what the Battle of the Heavenly Champions should be. I don’t need to explain myself.”
“Fine. In that case, apologize.”
The Eastern Sovereign Divine Daoist’s expression turned grim.
Chu Kuangren did not only want to kill him, but he wanted to destroy his pride too.
Should the Eastern Sovereign Divine Daoist apologize, it would mean that what he had done up until now was nothing but a mistake.
“What if I refuse?”
“Simple. I don’t want someone I don’t like in my team while I’m going to war with another universe.”
As Chu Kuangren raised his hand, a vast Arch Gilded Intent surged and swirled in his palm.
The aura locked onto the Eastern Sovereign Divine Daoist. The chilly killing intent that it emanated presented gory images of mountains of dead bodies before his eyes.
“I’ll give you one more chance,” Chu Kuangren said coldly.
What should the Eastern Sovereign Divine Daoist do?
He tried to think of a solution. He looked at the others, but no one would dare to take his side because it would mean going against Chu Kuangren.
Should he fight Chu Kuangren?
It was impossible because he was no match for Chu Kuangren and he would certainly be killed.
If fighting was not an option, there was only one option left, and it was to apologize!
The prestigious Eastern Sovereign Divine Daoist had to apologize to his enemy to not get killed!
The Eastern Sovereign Divine Daoist’s expression turned bitter and his body trembled, but he managed to squeeze out his apology. “I-I’m sorry.”
The others could not help but shake their heads at the scene.
Being forced to apologize to his enemy in front of the public, the Eastern Sovereign Divine Daoist must be on the brink of breaking down.
“Louder. I can’t hear you,” Chu Kuangren said.
“Chu Kuangren, don’t push it!”
Chu Kuangren’s Arch Gilded Intent surged once more. The mountain-like pressure instantly enveloped the Eastern Sovereign Divine Daoist.
“What did you say?”
The Eastern Sovereign Divine Daoist’s eyes turned red as his body shook violently.
He tried his very best to hold down the urge of fighting Chu Kuangren, bit the bullet, and shouted, “I’m sorry!”
His shout echoed across ten of thousands of kilometers and even shook the clouds in the sky.
Some of the cultivators from the other universe also heard it and were baffled by the sudden apology.
Shouting his apology did not only make the Eastern Sovereign Divine Daoist lose his voice temporarily, but he even lost his pride as the strongest Divine Daoist from the Immortal Hall.
“You don’t need to be so loud with the apology.” Chu Kuangren picked his ear with slight annoyance on his face.
His arrogant attitude left everyone else speechless.
He was the one who told the Eastern Sovereign Divine Daoist to be louder, yet he was the one that deemed it too loud.
What a jerk!
Chu Kuangren then led the others to the Divine Dao Spire without saying anything else to the Eastern Sovereign Divine Daoist.
The Great Arbiter Divine Maiden glanced at the Eastern Sovereign Divine Daoist.
The man was still standing there with his body shaking and his eyes bloodshot and seemingly glistening.
Was he crying?
Chu Kuangren was probably the only one in both universes who could make a prestigious Divine Daoist cry in public.
“We still have time. Don’t give up just yet,” the Great Arbiter Divine Maiden consoled him.
As she was still the Divine Maiden, she could not stay silent at a time like that.
“Thankfully, you’re still here with me. At least I know I’m not alone.” The Eastern Sovereign Divine Daoist wiped his tears away and thanked her after a deep breath.
The Great Arbiter Divine Maiden smiled awkwardly at him.
If she told him that she was already under Chu Kuangren’s control, the Eastern Sovereign Divine Daoist might go berserk instead of cry.
“Poor guy.” The Great Arbiter Divine Maiden looked at the Eastern Sovereign Divine Daoist sympathetically.
The Eastern Sovereign Divine Daoist adjusted his emotions after a while. “Let’s go. Destroying the Divine Dao Spire is an important task. We can’t let Chu Kuangren take all the limelight.”
With that, the two of them went up to catch up with the group.
There were seven Divine Dao Spires in the secret realm.
Six of them were handled by the great ones, while Chu Kuangren and the younger generations were to siege the last one with the weakest defense.
With several million kilometers left to the Divine Dao Spire, Chu Kuangren sensed the structure with his Immortal Consciousness.
The Divine Dao Spire was pitch-black, and it was plunged into the land like a long sword.
Restriction seals and countless soldiers were patrolling around it.
“Chu Kuangren, that’s the Divine Dao Spire. I can lead a team forward as a vanguard,” the Eastern Sovereign Divine Daoist suggested.
He was not trying to be righteous. He was just trying to regain his dignity after being insulted by Chu Kuangren earlier.
Chu Kuangren permitted him to lead a team forward.
The Eastern Sovereign Divine Daoist then led a small team of people toward the Divine Dao Spire.
Meanwhile, Hua Xi, Ye Zhu, and the others approached the spire from several other directions.
The soldiers from the other universe were patrolling the exterior of the spire.
Suddenly, there was a loud bang, and a massive and towering Emperor Avatar threw a powerful palm strike at the restriction seals.
The land shook.
The Eastern Sovereign Divine Daoist and his team of vanguard led the siege on the spire.
The powerful Emperor Avatar broke through the restriction seals easily.
The general in charge shouted, sounding the alarm of an enemy attack.
Gilded Immortals appeared, followed by an Arch Gilded Immortal.
“How audacious of you to attack this place!” the Arch Gilded Immortal general shouted before he launched an attack at the Eastern Sovereign Divine Daoist.
While the two of them fought, another powerful energy presence erupted in the other direction of the tower.
Phoenix Flame surged and burned the soldiers into cinders.
The Drought Maiden led the second vanguard. Her powerful physical body was engulfed in the Drought Demon Flame, granting her an indomitable might that no one could stop.
At the same time, Ye Zhu’s sword qi went on a rampage. The Immortal Destruction Sword Qi swept the field, leaving a trail of broken limbs and severed heads behind.
Every single one of the Prodigies was powerful, and the preemptive strike caught the defense soldiers off guard.
Hua Xi threw a palm strike forward, eliminating several Gilded Immortals ahead.
However, her brows furrowed as she clearly felt something was not right.
The siege was too easy!
The defense around the spire was a lot weaker than she had imagined. In fact, they would not even need Chu Kuangren for the siege.
“Could it be that the other universe has focused its defenses on the other six Divine Dao Spires?” Hua Xi pondered.
On the other hand, unlike the calm and wise Hua Xi, the Eastern Sovereign Divine Daoist vented all his grievances from Chu Kuangren on the Arch Gilded Immortal general.
With all kinds of Immortal Techniques and divine abilities unleashed, Emperor Arch Gilded Intent shone brightly as if the Immortal King had unleashed his brilliance.
The soldiers from the other universe were shocked by the power he displayed.
Delighted by their terrified look, the Eastern Sovereign Divine Daoist cackled.
“Soldiers from the other universe, remember me as I am the Eastern Sovereign Divine Daoist! Now, you shall know who killed you!”
