God Emperor - Chapter 2493
Four gods had come to Hoth.
Among them were true gods and pseudo gods.
At that moment, the four gods had come to the Hoth Palace to pay their respects to the Hoth Emperor. They were gods, and they were very good at concealing their auras. However, they couldn’t hide from the Hoth Emperor’s senses on Hoth.
Since the Hoth Emperor had come out of seclusion, who dared not come to pay him a visit?

They were nervous and wondered if the Hoth Emperor’s coming out of seclusion at this time had something to do with their arrival.
After arriving at the Hoth Palace, they confirmed this because the Hoth Emperor had no intention of inviting them in. Nor did he ask them to leave.
This was not a good sign. It was clearly a warning to them.
The four gods looked at each other and revealed bitter smiles. It wasn’t suitable for them to leave now. They could only continue to wait.
Within the Hoth Palace
Xia Huangchao, in a white robe, was sitting under a vermillion tree.
The tree was filled with red leaves.
The leaves were stacked together like a red mountain. The leaves fell and floated in the air, facing the red butterfly.
Qing Yulou walked in from outside and bowed respectfully. “Master, the four gods are waiting outside. Should we invite them in?”
“Let them wait.” Xia Huangchao replied.
Qing Yulou saw a figure sitting opposite Xia Huangchao. However, they didn’t dare take a closer look and couldn’t see his face clearly.
This person could sit opposite their master here, but the four gods of the Infernal Court could only wait outside. This already showed the weight of this person.
Qing Yulou retreated.
Xia Huangchao looked at the blond man sitting opposite him. He raised his clay cup and took a sip. “This disciple of yours is not bad.”
There were a pair of dragon horns on the head of the blond man.
“If this praise of yours were to spread, his name would shake the Celestial Court and the Infernal Court.” Xia Huangchao smiled. “Actually, I didn’t teach him anything. I only trained him for 30,000 years in the dream world.”
30,000 years in the dream world didn’t represent 30,000 years in the real world.
Sometimes, one night of shocking dreams would pass one’s entire life.
The blond man shook his head. “Times have changed. 100,000 years have passed. I’m afraid that only a few cultivators in Celestial Court and Infernal Court still remember me today.”
Xia Huangchao stared at the blond man for a long time before letting out a long sigh; reminiscing, he said, “It’s a pity that we can’t go back to the past. I really miss those days when our youth was like a song. We traveled worldwide, searching for the secret trove, stealing the sacred medicine, and catching the Golden Kun. At that time, our cultivation was obviously shallow, but there was no place in the world to which we didn’t dare go. There was nothing we didn’t dare to do, and how many times did we escape death? But now, after cultivating to become a god, we have lost the freedom we once had.”
The blond man did his best to avoid this name, but when the blond man mentioned it.., only then did they say, “That’s right, and Jiu. I’ll never see Jiu again. She’s a Phoenix, but in the end, she couldn’t escape death. I saw her being killed with my own eyes. Even her divine soul was refined until it vanished into thin air.”
The blond man’s gaze became much colder as he said, “You’ve never told me this before. You actually saw her being killed with your own eyes?”
“She knew that I would definitely make a move, so before she rushed out of the fane, she used an array formation to trap me. At that time, I could only desperately attack the array formation. I wanted to fight my way out, but in the end, I could only watch, unable to do anything!”
“Everyone in the world thinks that the Xia Huangchao is peerless and is the pride of the Immortal Vampires. In reality, he’s just a pitiful worm. “I can’t forget how she looked at me when she walked out of the fane. Those eyes… those eyes are filled with too many emotions.”
Xia Huangchao closed his eyes. At the end of his speech, his voice was filled with disappointment and trembling.
Who would have thought that the famous Hoth Emperor, the most powerful and decisive figure in the world, would shed divine tears at this moment.
The past was unbearable to recall. Every time he thought about it, his heart would break.
The blond man said, “I’m not qualified to blame you. If it weren’t for you, I wouldn’t have been able to escape back to Kunlun when I was seriously injured. When Jiu went to find you, she knew that she would die, so she sent your only child to Nephilim Island. It was the Island Lord who raised him.
“At that time, your relationship with Kunlun was too deep. You were not trusted by the Fane of Destiny, and you didn’t want to take action yourself. Therefore, you declared to the outside world that you would stay and guard the Fane of Immortality. I understand your difficulties. She also knows that your situation is complicated. Hence, after receiving your letter for help, she went to look for you without hesitation.”
“I didn’t write a letter to her,” Xia Huangchao replied.
The blond man nodded and said, “She also guessed that it was very likely that you didn’t write the letter, so she knew she was doomed. However, since it was your letter for help, she had to go no matter what.”
“Where is that child? Is he still alive?” Xia Huangchao’s eyes were filled with joy and fear.
After 100,000 years, a feeling of fear was born again.
Gods also had feelings and desires. To an incomparably powerful god, this was a state of mind where a huge fluctuation appeared.
No enemy could make Xia Huangchao feel fear. What made him feel fear was his own heart.
The blond man said, “Destiny has brought us together. Naturally, we will be able to meet.”
Xia Huangchao stood up and stood among the falling red leaves. His white clothes were as white as snow, and the melancholy and sentimentality on his body dissipated. His aura as a peerless powerhouse gradually returned. He asked, “Did you come to Hoth for the superior-grade Divine Crystal of Origin or the Tensho Compass?”
“Finding the Fane of Origin is the hope for Kunlun to rise again. If we can seize a divine artifact, it will naturally be a good thing,” the blond man said.
Xia Huangchao said, “That’s not right. Your goal is to obtain the Tensho Compass. That’s because you want to use it to find the exact location where the Island Lord is being held. Your ultimate goal is to rescue the Island Lord.”
“I can’t hide it from you. Then, what’s your choice?” The blond man asked.
Xia Huangchao replied, “I’m a member of the Infernal Court, a member of the Immortal Vampires, and the ancestor of hundreds of millions of people in the Xia dynasty.”
“So, you want to stop me? You should understand that you are no match for me,” the blond man said.
Xia Huangchao said, “A hundred thousand years ago, Kunlun opened the Sundial. Your cultivation has indeed surpassed mine. However, you have been sleeping and recuperating in these hundred thousand years while I have been improving.”If we fight again today, it is unknown who will win. Moreover, have you really recovered from your injuries?”
“Then let’s fight!” the blond man said.
Xia Huangchao said, “We’ll fight again after you’ve rescued the Island Lord.”
The blond man’s eyes revealed a look of disbelief. He knew better than anyone else how stubborn Xia Huangchao was. For the sake of the interests and ideals of the Immortal Vampires and the Infernal Court, he had fought with him countless times.
Their friendship was forged through battle after battle.
But now, he was willing to put down the ideals in his heart and do something that would harm the interests of the Infernal Court. This was too inconceivable.
This meant that Xia Huangchao placed more importance on friendship than on interests and ideals.
“I won’t stop you, and I won’t help you.”Xia Huangchao placed his hands behind his back and turned around. He no longer looked at the blond man and could be considered to have sent him away.
The blond man stood up and left.
Suddenly, Xia Huangchao’s voice rang out, “Ji Wang.”
The blond man stopped in his tracks.
Two extremely handsome men stood under a tree with their backs facing each other.
After a long while, Xia Huangchao spoke, “I promise you that all the gods who attacked back then will die. It has been 100,000 years. I will definitely bring their divine blood to worship Jiu.”
“I forgive you!”
The Dragon Lord Ji Wang’s figure disappeared without a trace.
All the Supreme Saints who had attacked stopped.
Xue Lingxian’s sword attack had shocked them.
Pang Hu, the leader of the Sect of River God, laughed loudly, “The powerhouses from the Avīci Pavilion have finally arrived!”
The ten major dark forces dared to snatch the Tensho Compass because the Avīci Pavilion had invited two peerless powerhouses to act. Pang Hu, the Nine-Eye Ghost Emperor, and the Corpse-devouring Ape had already seen the power of Xue Lingxian and Granny Begonia, so they were very confident.
The Ominous Palace’s High Priest said with a ferocious look, “How could the Avīci Pavilion raise two such powerful cultivators without making a sound? Moreover, they can even avoid the prediction of Destiny.”
Gong Nanfeng said, “They are from Kunlun.”
“What?” Ominous Palace’s High Priest asked.
Gong Nanfeng said as if he knew everything, “That sword is called the Wordless Sword Manual. The person standing on the sword is called Xue Lingxian. He was an unparalleled figure in Kunlun 100,000 years ago, second only to the Empress of Thousand Bones. He can be said to be a representative of the Yuanhui period.
“You know little about Kunlun, but I know that he is the first Scion of the Sect of Blood God in Kunlun and the first disciple of the Blood God. His body can be said to be extraordinary. Although he hasn’t become a god yet, he has lived for more than 200,000 years.”
“How is that possible? A god of flesh and blood under divinity can live for 200,000 years?” The Death Palace’s High Priest was also predicting Xue Lingxian just now, but he could only deduce a bit, which was far less detailed than Gong Nanfeng.
Gong Nanfeng said, “Xue Lingxian cultivated to the Supreme Saint Realm three times, and was beaten down to the lower state to cultivate three times again. He cultivated divinity twice and was killed twice. He was revived twice and continued to cultivate. In the end, the Undying Blood Silkworm transformed into a butterfly. It rose from a first-rate genius to a representative figure of the Yuanhui level.”
“It’s funny that the person who beat him down twice and killed him was actually his master, the Blood God. Ultimately, Xue Lingxian was almost driven mad and wanted to defect. In the end, he was again captured and killed by the Blood God.”
Fukurokuju narrowed his eyes and said, “Undying Blood Silkworm, it seems that the Blood God’s experiment has succeeded!”
“Whether it has succeeded or not is not certain. It depends on whether Xue Lingxian’s experiment is strong enough. The immortal blood silkworm is used to nurture Yuanhui-level geniuses. In my opinion, Xue Lingxian is still a little inferior to Wargod Bloodximius and Huang Tian of the same era,” said Gong Nanfeng.
Only Gong Nanfeng, who was as weak as an ordinary person, could say this calmly.
The four high priests’ faces had long turned ashen. It was obvious that they were feeling immense pressure.
A cultivation technique or a treasure could not nurture people like Wargod Bloodximius and Huang Tian. They had to reach the pinnacle in all aspects before one could be born.
Que said, “It’s already very terrifying. Just one sword strike was enough to suppress the Divine Ghost Mask. Moreover, my Kagemaru is actually trembling at this moment. He will be the opponent that I must defeat in this lifetime.”
Pan Ruo asked, “Who is that begonia?”
“I don’t quite understand it. It looks like the vessel spirit of the Wordless Sword Manual, but it also doesn’t look like it. However, the begonia’s age is even older than Xue Lingxian’s. How did it survive the Yuanhui Tribulation that occurs every 129,600 years?” asked Gong Nanfeng.
No one could answer him.
After all, in the Fane of Destiny, he knew and could deduce more than the gods.
If he didn’t know, who else would it be?
Xue Lingxian’s long hair fluttered in the wind, and his voice resounded throughout the world. He said, “100,000 years ago, Kunlun suffered a terrible defeat. Countless living beings died and turned into bones and dirt. Countless cultivators became slaves or prisoners. Today, I have come for vengeance.”
The Ominous Palace’s High Priest recovered from his shock. After all, he had been in a high position for a long time and had seen many gods. He said, “So you are the remnants of Kunlun from 100,000 years ago, and you still don’t know the lesson. Since you didn’t die, why don’t you hide and live your life? The Fane of Destiny is the best in the world. It is the most supreme. Do you think you alone can shake it?”
“If it were me, I would believe it. But if it were you, I wouldn’t believe it,” said Xue Lingxian.
The Ominous Palace’s High Priest turned into a real flame, causing thousands of miles of land to burn. In the vast expanse of fire, an ancient crimson seal formed and attacked Xue Lingxian.
His cultivation level was naturally very high to become the High Priest of the Ominous Palace. He was an existence that scared the Supreme Saints of the Celestial Court’s myriad worlds.
The moment he attacked, he used a Paramount-level saint technique.
The entire heaven and earth were filled with the precepts that surged out of the body of the Ominous Palace’s High Priest. Wherever the ancient crimson seal flew, space was torn apart, and thousands of cracks appeared.
Xue Lingxian punched out, and silver light seemed to illuminate the universe.
The deafening sound caused countless cultivators present to lose their hearing. Fortunately, the array formation protected the spiritual-power masters standing on Genbu’s divine corpse. Otherwise, even if they were ten thousand miles apart, they would be heavily injured.
The ancient crimson seal shattered, and blocking Xue Lingxian’s fist force was difficult.
“A single fist can break my Paramount-level saint technique?” The Ominous Palace’s High Priest gritted his teeth.
Xue Lingxian opened his mouth and spat out a mouthful of silver lightning. It turned into countless streams of lightning and charged toward the Ominous Palace’s High Priest.
Between the High Priests’ eyebrows, the artifact of the Ominous Palace flew out, emitting a blood-red divine light.
This was an ominous artifact that had absorbed countless amounts of saint blood and divine blood. It was an extremely ominous weapon. Its power was no weaker than the Ax of Judgement and the Destiny Halberd.
Even with the Ominous Blade, the Ominous Palace’s High Priest was still unable to block Xue Lingxian’s silver lightning bolt. His body continuously retreated, and his black robe started to burn and turn into ashes.
“Let’s give the high priest a helping hand.”
Two Paramount Realm Supreme Saints wearing sacred armor flew up from the ground. One’s body was burning like a sun, and the other stood in a lifeless black hole.
The two of them were the guardians of the Ominous Palace. They were both old fogeys who had lived for more than ten thousand years.
The two palace guardians appeared on the left and right sides of the Ominous Palace’s High Priest. They each struck out with their palms. Trillions of precepts surged out of their bodies and activated the Ominous Blade together.
The Ominous Blade lasted only for three seconds before it flew backward and landed on the ground, sinking thousands of miles into the ground.
After two breaths, the two palace guardians’ Paramount physiques were burned into ashes, and their souls and bodies were destroyed.
The Ominous Palace’s High Priest had a Supreme Treasure to protect himself, which saved his life. However, his body was like charcoal as he fell into the lake of scarlet lava. He did not move at all, and his aura was fragile.
Xue Lingxian stomped down and trampled him to death.
Lord Wu Yue wanted to save him, but Xue Lingxian used the stone sword, over 20,000 meters long, and sent him flying.
One High Priest and two Paramount Realm Supreme Saints were killed instantly.
Everyone was shocked.
The cultivators from the ten major dark forces were all excited. The High Priest of the Fane of Destiny was killed just like that? It was unbelievable.
