This scene caused all the cultivators' expressions to change greatly. The moment the white-haired man appeared, he caused more than 10 cultivators to die. He also directly devoured their flesh and origin souls.
This shocking scene caused everyone to suck in a breath of cold air.
Upon seeing this strange man charging toward the celestial gate, no one dared to step forward to stop him. Just at this moment, one person among the several cultivators near the celestial gate flew out. He was middle-aged and was wearing a golden robe. His eyes were like lightning and he was at the Illusory Yin stage. He slapped his bag of holding and 13 flying swords flew out.
With a point of his finger, the swords shot toward the strange, white-haired man.
"Fellow Cultivators, please act and stop this person from reaching the gate, or else none of us will be able to leave!"
Behind the middle-aged man, several cultivators clenched their teeth. They all took out their treasures and charged out.
The strange, white-haired man let out a creepy laughter and in a flash his body seemed to merge with the world, disappearing without a trace. When he re-appeared, he was next to the celestial gate, which was the giant bolt of red thunder that descended from the sky.
The moment he appeared, his right hand formed a seal and hit the red thunder. There was a loud rumble that echoed across the heavens and earth.
"Thunder Celestial Gate, close!" The hoarse voice was like a chilly wind that entered the ears of the cultivators around him.
That giant bolt of red thunder began shrinking rapidly.
Just at this moment, the surrounding cultivators began to react. They all took out various treasures and charged toward the strange man. Among them were less than 10 Illusory Yin cultivators. They were the primary force of this attack, and they were charging straight toward the strange man.
"The Thunder Celestial Realm will close and all of you will be my food!" The strange, white-haired man's eyes revealed a cold gaze. Without even looking at the attacks coming toward him, he disappeared and then reappeared behind a late stage Ascendant cultivator. His speed was beyond imagination
The Ascendant cultivator was an old man. His expression changed greatly and his eyes were filled with fear. However, before he had time to turn around, the strange, white-haired man's hand directly penetrated the old man's chest. He seized the old man's origin soul and directly crushed it.
The old man was able to hear his chest shatter and his origin soul collapse. His vision blacked out and his life was lost. His entire body, along with his origin soul, was devoured by the strange, white-haired man.
"The origin energy is too weak!" The strange, white-haired man's body flickered once more and disappeared.
The next time he appeared, he was in front of the golden-robed man that acted first.
The golden-robed man's face turned pale and he retreated without any hesitation. However, it was too late. The white-haired man let out a creepy laugh, then his body turned into a bloody shadow that went into the golden-robed man's body. Explosions echoed inside the golden-robed man's body before he bursted into a mist of blood.
The white-haired man took form inside the mist of blood and devoured the golden-robed man's origin soul.
His eyes lit up and he smiled. "Not bad, this is a qi cultivator!" After licking his lips, he disappeared once more.
There were more than 100 cultivators around, but there were even more cultivators closing in. They obviously wanted to leave through here. As the number of cultivators increased, the white-haired man was like a fish in water. He was simply too fast and vicious, and he could kill a person in an instant.
As a result, it was impossible for the surrounding cultivators to work together. Fear gradually grew, and as the celestial gate rapidly shrank to the point of disappearing completely, the fear grew even stronger.
It was unknown who started it, but all the surrounding cultivators gave up sieging the white-haired man. Instead, they dispersed and charged toward the disappearing celestial gate from all directions.
The white-haired man let out a grim smile as he devoured a few more cultivators. Then his hand formed a seal and he shouted, "Celestial spell, clones!" In an instant, the white-haired man split into two and then again from two to four. This continued, and in an instant there were 32 of him.
The 32 clones charged out and immediately merged with the world. When they re-appeared, they were within 10,000 feet of the celestial gate. At the same moment, miserable screams filled the air.
All of the cultivators that were within 10,000 feet had their bodies destroyed by the clones and their origin souls devoured.
Their resistance had no real effect on the clones. They often died before they could even act.
However, even more cultivators rushed in toward the celestial gate. After all, the celestial gate was the only path to survival.
"Interesting. I want to see how many among you junior qi cultivators can actually escape!" The white-haired man laughed as his body disappeared and reappeared behind an Illusory Yin cultivator.
That Illusory Yin cultivator's eyes became cold and he exploded his origin soul without hesitation. His origin soul and body turned into origin energy and collapsed. Even though he couldn't escape death, he still had a choice. The choice to die with dignity!
This was self-destruction.
Under the loud rumble, the white-haired man frowned. He didn't retreat and instead inhaled in all the surrounding origin energy into his mouth.
"This is a qi cultivator with guts!"
It was a massacre, and as the celestial gate was about to disappear, this slaughter reached its peak. Most of the cultivators were rushing in like crazy in order to escape.
After all, the celestial gate was the only hope.
However, with that white-haired man's 32 clones covering the 10,000 feet area, only Illusory Yin cultivators could get within 1,000 feet of the gate. Everyone else would die before even getting within 1,000 feet.
As for the Illusory Yin cultivators that rushed within 1,000 feet, they all suffered the same fate. They all died as soon as the white-haired man's origin body appeared.
Bursts of creepy laughter came from the white-haired man. As he continued to slaughter and devour, his originally skinny body gradually expanded slightly. It was as if something was moving inside his body, and this made him look even more terrifying.
The aura his body gave off became even stronger. Almost every time he devoured a cultivator, his aura became a bit stronger. The red light from his eyes became even stronger.
The scent of blood immediately diffused and the eyes of the surrounding cultivators were filled with despair. The celestial gate was just about to dissipate completely. It didn't seem like it would take long before it disappeared completely.
Once that bolt of red thunder disappeared, the Thunder Celestial Realm would be completely sealed.
Just at this moment, more than 10 rays of sword energy flew in from the distance. These rays of sword energy were filled with origin energy and created a sharp roar as they rushed over. At the front, Zhan Konglie's eyes were cold, and behind him were more than 10 cultivators at the Illusory Yin stage. They were all charging toward the white-haired man.
At the same time, several more rays of light came from another direction. The one in front was Tang Yanfeng. He had a gloomy expression and had people behind him as well. In addition to the people of his family, there were also cultivators from other families that he was good friends with. However, they were all only at the Illusory Yin stage.
These two groups were extremely fast as they charged toward the white-haired man. Before they even arrived, origin energy and magical treasures were sent out first.
The people led by Tang Yanfeng and Zhan Konglie launched their attacks without any hesitation.
The whited-haired man's eyes revealed a red glow and he grinned. He completely ignored the spells and magical treasures heading toward him and charged out. He appeared inside Tang Yanfeng's group and immediately grabbed a person.
That cultivator revealed a decisive gaze before his body immediately exploded, causing a large ripple to spread. The white-haired man let out a cold snort and was about to inhale when a fierce sword energy filled with thunder came from afar. This sword energy rich in thunder came from Shengong Hu!
"Deadly entanglement!" After Tang Yanfeng shouted, the cultivators in his group immediately used all their strength to trap the white-haired man.
At the same time, Zhan Konglie charged out with a copper furnace. He was filled with killing intent as he charged toward the white-haired man.
Tang Yanfeng also gave up his personal grudge with Shengong Hu. He waved his sleeves and a white mist immediately appeared. His eyes lit up and he charged in.
Shengong Hu and Zhan Konglie charged in without any hesitation. Three powerful Corporeal Yang cultivators began their attack on the white-haired man at the same time.
The surrounding 10 plus Illusory Yin cultivators didn't retreat. They all began using their magical treasures and started a siege.
Although there were few Corporeal Yang cultivators, Shengong Hu's people weren't the only ones. There were two more Corporeal Yang cultivators that didn't hesitate to rush into the white mist and use their powerful origin energy spells.
With someone taking lead, the surrounding cultivators' spirits were lifted and they were about to join the siege when the 32 clones of the white-haired man began to slaughter the surrounding cultivators.
There were also cultivators among them that wanted to preserve their own lives and take this opportunity to rush at the disappearing celestial gate. There were many people who had similar ideas, but they were all killed by the white-haired man's clone when they got within 10,000 feet of the gate.
Even though this was happening, there were still cultivators trying to rush toward the celestial gate. As more cultivators arrived, this situation reached its peak.
Wang Lin had already grabbed Li Yuan and retreated the moment the white-haired man appeared. They retreated more than 500 meters away. As they heard the constant screams of dying cultivators, Wang Lin's expression became extremely gloomy.
Wang Lin saw Shengong Hu and company's appearance, and this made him hesitate. However, he looked at Li Yuan and didn't act.
Beside him, Li Yuan's face was extremely pale.
"Brother Xu… I fear we won't be able to leave.."
Wang Lin silently pondered. This white-haired man was too strong. He secretly compared him to the Blood Ancestor, and judging from this person's cultivation, he was even stronger than the Blood Ancestor.
This was not even the key point. Everytime the white-haired man devoured a cultivator, his cultivation would increase. Thus, Wang Lin was able to figure out how high this person's cultivation level could reach.
Wang Lin looked at Li Yuan and suddenly asked, "Brother Li, do you believe in me?"
Li Yuan was startled and nodded. "Does Brother Xu have a method of leaving? I naturally believe in Brother Xu!"
Wang Lin hesitated before slowly saying, "I indeed have a spell, but I have not fully mastered it yet. If I take a person with me, while I'll come to no harm, the person I bring will likely suffer. If you agree, I can try it."
Li Yuan silently pondered. He knew exactly how powerful the white-haired man was and he knew he was no match. Even with Xu Mu here, when facing the white-haired man, Xu Mu might not even be able to protect himself, much less protect him.
Li Yuan had a feeling that if he stayed here, he would without a doubt die! This feeling was very strong, and at this moment it completely engulfed his mind.
Li Yuan's eyes lit up, revealing decisiveness, and he said, "Brother Xu, please use the spell. I'm willing to gamble!"
Wang Lin nodded. He became acquainted with Li Yuan in the Thunder Celestial Realm, and they had been through much together. Although they couldn't be considered best friends, they had been through trials and tribulations.
If it wasn't for Li Yuan, Wang Lin believed that he would have died under the Blood Ancestor's pursuit. In this regard, Li Yuan had saved his life.
After taking a deep breath, Wang Lin slowly backed up and opened his heart. As he recalled the feeling of merging with the world, ripples would appear with every step he took.
After stepping back more than 10 steps, that feeling of merging with the world still hadn't appeared. Seeing that the celestial gate was ready disappear at any moment and hearing the screams of the dying cultivators, Wang Lin suppressed his anxiety and calmed his heart.
He wasn't thinking about anything and did his best to calm himself down.
In the end, as Wang Lin backed up, his eyes revealed a calm gaze. At this moment, he began merging with the world and gradually became closer and closer to becoming one with the world.
After an unknown amount of time, the original feeling of merging with the world and being inseparable from it appeared once more in Wang Lin's heart. At this moment, he had the illusion that he had become the world.
His eyes narrowed and were as calm as water. Wang Lin no longer backed up but walked forward one step at a time. He was extremely calm.
Ripples appeared under his feet once more and slowly spread out. Wang Lin grabbed the dumbfounded Li Yuan as his body gradually disappeared into the void.
Li Yuan felt a powerful force coming from Wang Lin, as if he was wrapped up by a sword. His vision became blurry and he couldn't see things clearly anymore. It was as if his entire being was being dragged through time and had extended infinitely.
After grabbing Li Yuan's arm, Wang Lin's eyes were still as calm as water. As he stepped forward, he and Li Yuan disappeared as they truly entered the void.
At this moment, the white-haired man that was being attacked by five powerful Corporeal Yang cultivators, more than 10 Illusory Yin cultivators, and large number of Ascendant cultivators let out a loud laugh. As he laughed like crazy, his hand formed seals and he muttered some words. A layer of red light immediately appeared inside mist.
All of the origin spells and magical treasures had no effect on the light screen; they weren't able to break it!
Shengong Hu's flying sword collided with the light screen. The flying sword immediately shattered inch by inch. The backlash caused Shengong Hu to cough out blood and immediately retreat.
Not only him, but Zhang Konglie, Tang Tangfeng, and the other two Corporeal Yang cultivators all coughed out blood and were knocked back.
As for the Illusory Yin cultivators, their origin souls shook and their bodies were thrown back.
The white-haired man inside the light screen revealed a bloodthirsty grin and said, with a hoarse voice, "Yes, now there is some combat ability. However, compared to the celestial army, you juniors are too weak, too weak, too weak! You're not even qualified to make me use my Ji Realm!"
As he spoke, he opened his arms and the light screen around him suddenly expanded. It moved very fast and pushed away the white mist surrounding him.
The surrounding cultivators couldn't help but retreat. There were few that were too slow that touched the light screen. The moment they touched the light screen, they let out screams and their bodies withered and became mummified. Even their origin souls collapsed, and the origin energy was absorbed by the light screen.
From the outside, various cultivators charged out from the white mist in terror as if they were afraid they were too slow.
As the white-haired man laughed, his figure flickered and he appeared behind an Illusory Yin cultivator that was falling behind. He crushed the cultivator's body and was about to devour the cultivator's origin soul when he suddenly turned around. For the first time, his eyes revealed shock and seriousness.
"Dao merged with the world!" At the moment he turned around, the cultivator who lost his body exploded his origin soul. However, the white-haired man couldn't be bothered and also merged with the world. Ripples appeared under his feet and his body immediately disappeared.
"Not even many people in the Celestial Realm from back then were able to achieve dao merged with the world! However, this person hasn't fully mastered it!" The white-haired old man appeared 1,000 feet away from the celestial gate and his eyes revealed a strange light. His right hand mercilessly grasped toward the void.
"Come out for me!"
Five huge spatial cracks suddenly appeared in the world. These cracks were large, and with a sharp, whistling sound, it seemed to rip open five rifts in the world.
A power clearly different from celestial spiritual energy and origin energy erupted from the white-haired man and entered the cracks. At this moment, all of the cultivators had the illusion that the entire world was violently shaking.
Shengong Hu's face was pale, and beside him, Zhan Konglie was the same. Tang Yanfeng clenched his fists. The three of them looked at each other and saw the fear hidden deep within each other's eyes.
A soft, muffled groan came out from the void before the old man. Following that, Wang Lin's figure appeared 500 feet from the celestial gate. Wang Lin was holding Li Yuan, whose orifices were bleeding and his eyes were filled with confusion.
At the moment he appeared, Li Yuan coughed out a large amount of blood. It was obvious he couldn't bear Wang Lin's spell.
The moment Wang Lin appeared, he didn't hesitate at all. Almost at the moment he appeared, he mercilessly threw Li Yuan forward. A powerful surge of origin energy surrounded Li Yuan, causing him to fly like lightning toward the dissipating celestial gate that was only the size of a fist.
That white-haired old man sneered as he took a step forward and immediately disappeared. Wang Lin's eyes became cold and his origin energy surged out without any hesitation to form a vortex. The might of thunder came out from his origin soul and countless bolts of thunder entered the vortex.
"Explode!" Wang Lin shouted without any hesitation the moment the old man disappeared.
A loud rumble suddenly exploded inside the void. This sound was so shocking that it caused all of the surrounding cultivators to suck in breaths of cold air.
Shengong Hu's eyes narrowed as he stared at Wang Lin and revealed a look of joy.
Not only him, but Zhan Konglie was the same.
"It's him!" Tang Yanfeng frowned. He recognized Wang Lin as Xu Mu, who he had no confidence in winning against.
At the same time, the origin vortex in front of Wang Lin collapsed was the same time the white-haired man appeared before Wang Lin. The vortex immediately collapsed and the white-haired man's eyes revealed a mysterious light as he laughed. He mercilessly inhaled and all the origin energy from the collapse of the vortex was inhaled into his mouth.
Wang Lin quickly retreated and caught up to Li Yuan. He pushed Li Yuan and shouted, "Li Yuan, quickly, activate the thunder furnace!"
His voice was like thunder that rushed into Li Yuan's brain. Still confused, Li Yuan subconsciously took out the thunder furnace. The moment he took it out it was when his body touched the dissipating celestial gate that was only the size of a fist.
A ray of light came from the furnace and wrapped around Li Yuan before he disappeared.
At the same time, Wang Lin also took out the thunder furnace and was about to leave as well. At this moment, the white-haired man's eyes lit up and he softly said, "Gate, close!"
After that was said, the celestial gate that had shrunk to the size of a fist immediately collapsed and disappeared.
As Wang Lin held the thunder furnace, his eyes became cold. He didn't even look back and immediately teleported toward the void. The old man laughed and chased after Wang Lin.
"I remember now, you are that cautious qi cultivator!"
The white-haired man was too fast, so he caught up to Wang Lin in one step. His large hand viciously grasped toward Wang Lin's back!
"I don't like cautious people! Even the Ji Realm wasn't able to kill you. I want to see how you will escape this time!" The white-haired man's eyes glowed red and there was a harsh whistling sound along with his grasp. In an instant, all of Wang Lin's paths of retreat were sealed!
Shengong Hu suddenly opened his eyes and his eyes were filled with expectation.
"My lord, please act!!"
Zhan Konglie was extremely alert and thought, "This strange man is too strong. I just don't know if Senior is stronger!"
As for Tang Yanfeng, he sneered as he stared at Wang Lin and thought at the bottom of his heart, "Although this person is strong, even with the five of us and many Illusory Yin cultivators, we were no match for the strange man. He is at the same cultivation level as me and will without a doubt die! I want to see how he is killed; that will save me some trouble in the future!"
