Star Odyssey - Chapter 1674
Chapter 1674: Destroying Their Arrogance
Ku Wei was Lu Yin’s lockbreaking disciple, and he also held a high rank within the Great Eastern Alliance. On top of all that, he led the colossal giants. This meant that the Enlighters and even the Envoys present did not dare to oppose him.
“Brother Ku, that’s not a nice thing to say. We are all aware that the alliance leader wants to keep the pond for himself, but what is he going to tell the Chief Justice?” Wen Sansi asked.
Ling Gong cut in, “Cut the nonsense! Let us use that pond too.”
Ku Wei smiled. “You can go.”
Ling Gong was stunned, and everyone else present was taken aback as well. What did this mean?
“I heard that you’re involved with Master, so he won’t stop you if you want to go. You’re also going to be one of his future wives,” Ku Wei said in a completely serious manner.
Ling Gong blushed, but she was also furious. In her anger, she threw her spear at Ku Wei. “You’re shameless!”
“Why are you attacking me? You’re one of my future mistresses! I won’t fight you.”
“Who told you to say that? I’m going to kill you!”
“Your temper is horrible. My master truly has unique tastes. Chen Jian, protect the pond and don’t let anyone dirty my master’s future wives’ bathwater.”
No one could do anything with Chen Jian sitting next to the Celestial Frost Pond. The giant watched the skirmish between Ku Wei and Ling Gong with clear interest. There were a few cultivators who tried to sneak into the Celestial Frost Pond, but they were easily smacked away by the giant. One such person even had a power level that exceeded 400,000, but they were still batted away by Chen Jian without issue.
There were also a few other giants near the pond, and their presence intimidated everyone.
Although the Celestial Frost Sect’s ruins encompassed a huge area, it took only a short amount of time for the cultivators to fully explore it.
Over the course of just a few days, the Celestial Frost Sect’s ruins were fully explored, with the exception being the Celestial Frost Pond. Aside from some plants that had reached the point of detecting danger, there was nothing of much value left in the ruins.
Everyone tried to access the Celestial Frost Pond, and an increasing number of cultivators gathered in the great hall in an attempt to force the giants to pull back and give access to the Celestial Frost Pond. There were even some people who threatened to complain to the Interstellar Supreme Court about the Great Eastern Alliance.
Despite everything, Ku Wei refused to move, and the giant sitting guard over the Celestial Frost Pond changed to Chen Huang.
From Ku Wei’s words, the pond was reserved for his future mistress, and thus could not be contaminated.
His account quickly spread out into the rest of the universe, and countless people cursed Ku Wei.
In the end, Liu Qianjue and a few others were unable to endure such behavior, and they went to the Celestial Frost Pond.
By this time, tens of thousands of cultivators had gathered around the Celestial Frost Pond. However, those who had gathered were all quite powerful, and they also treated everyone else as their enemy.
Close to the Celestial Frost Pond, Ku Wei was standing on Chen Huang’s shoulder and quarreling with Liu Qianjue and a few other people.
“Boy, get lost!” Mountain God had returned to his normal size as Bai Wanshan, which made him as large as Chen Huang.
Chen Huang glared back. “Leave. Nobody can approach the bath pond.”
Mountain God bellowed, “Bullshit! Get lost!”
“Fight me, stupid mountain.”
“You’re just a giant that’s already been eliminated by time.”
“How dare you? I’ll destroy you!” Chen Huang shouted as he raised his right fist. The colossal giants had been suppressed by mountains in the past, and he hated all mountains.
Mountain God sneered. “Ridiculous.”
The two collided in the sky, and the impact of their collision pushed all the nearby people away.
Ku Wei tightly grabbed Chen Huang, which allowed him to manage to avoid being flung off.
At the same time, Ling Qiu and Liu Qianjue appeared right next to the Celestial Frost Pond, but before they could take another step, Liu Ye and Fei Hua appeared to block their path.
Liu Qianjue frowned. These two would not be easy to deal with.
Ling Qiu coldly said, “It seems that this pond is quite special, seeing as how Lu Yin has assigned three Envoys to guard it.”
Liu Ye calmly stated, “Leave. There’s nothing much here.”
“Do you really think that I’ll believe that?” Ling Qiu taunted.
Fei Hua’s brows rose. “You don’t have any choice.”
“You!” Ling Qiu shouted.
A shadow appeared above all of them, and Liu Qianjue and Ling Qiu looked up to see Chen Huang, who was covered in nine lined battle force.
Liu Qianjue and Ling Qiu glanced at each other before immediately retreating.
Mountain God also left after the other two pulled back.
The more effort that was put into preventing them from approaching the Celestial Frost Pond, the more they wanted to investigate it.
The ancestral tablet in the Daynight clan had been destroyed, but Lu Yin was practicing the Sealed Cage Technique close to where it had once stood. After several days, he suddenly opened his eyes; he could feel the members of the Daynight clan. Most of them were already close to him.
He could see clouds of blood when he closed his eyes, and each cloud represented a person from the Daynight clan. He could even kill them at any moment if he so wished.
This was the Sealed Cage Technique that had been used on a bloodline; what a tyrannical battle technique.
At this exact moment, Nightqueen Yanqing and the other members of the Daynight clan felt chills run down their spines. They had a strange sensation, as though an extra line had connected to them that was linked to their life force itself. If that line broke, they would die.
“Sealed Cage Technique? It’s the Sealed Cage Technique!” Nightking Leng shouted in terror.
Someone from the Lu Elite Troops flung smoke at the man. Although Nightking Leng’s power level had surpassed 400,000, just a Hunter from the Lu Elite Troops was able to easily injure the Nightking given his current wounded state.
However, the Nightking did not have any time to even think about the pain, as the Sealed Cage Technique had been activated.
Nightqueen Yanqing was in shock. “The Sealed Cage Technique? Elder Leng, what are you talking about?”
“Shut up! Who said that you could talk?” The nearby soldiers tried to stop them, but the Nightkings seemed to have gone crazy.
“You’re right! It’s the Sealed Cage Technique. We controlled the Daykings with this and were able to control their very life force, but this is the reverse. Who is controlling us? Who activated the Sealed Cage Technique?” Nightking Silo screamed.
“Who? Who is controlling us?”
“Who is it?”
The Nightkings screamed in desperation. This was their first time ever experiencing the sensation of having their very lives being held in someone else’s hand, so the despair filling their hearts was terrible.
Zhuo Daynight arrived, and she stopped the Lu Elite Troops from attacking the Nightkings. She also wanted to find out what was happening.
When Lu Yin had killed Nightking Zhenwu and taken the Daykings away from the rest of the Daynight clan, the Sealed Cage Technique had been removed from the Daykings, and they had been freed from the Nightkings’ control.
However, the Sealed Cage Technique had just been reactivated. The Daykings were being controlled once again, and Zhuo Daynight had rushed over, thinking that one of the Nightkings was behind this change.
However, the scene that she saw left her confused. Were the Nightkings also being controlled by the Sealed Cage Technique? How was that even possible?
“Zhuo Daynight, is this your work? Did you manage to reverse the Sealed Cage Technique to control us?” Nightqueen Yanqing glared at Zhuo Daynight.
The Nightkings all glared at Zhuo Daynight in absolute fury.
At this same time, Ying Daynight and Ganggu Daynight arrived as well. They had followed the Lu Elite Troops here for the attack on the Daynight clan, and they had also sensed the activation of the Sealed Cage Technique. They had also believed that it was due to one of the Nightkings, so thay had rushed over in shock.
“Did one of you Nightkings take control of us with the Sealed Cage Technique again? Even if we die, we’ll die with you!” Ganggu Daynight shrieked.
Nightking Leng bellowed back, “This must be the Daykings’ fault!”
“Hmph, the Sealed Cage Technique was created by the Nightkings, so how is this our fault?”
“Shut up!” Zhuo Daynight shouted, and everyone turned to look at her.
She said quietly, “Even the normal members of the clan are being controlled by the Sealed Cage Technique.”
Everyone suddenly fell silent. The Nightkings had been able to control the Daykings with the Sealed Cage Technique, but even if the Daykings had managed to find the means to reverse the technique and control the Nightkings, it should not have affected the normal members of the Daynight clan. Those people should have never been affected by the Sealed Cage Technique at all, and yet they were also being controlled at this moment.
Could it be the Second Nightking? Zhuo Daynight suddenly thought of the man, as he was the only ancient powerhouse who could have done such a thing. However, he had already been taken away by the Chief Justice and imprisoned at Gaia’s Swamp. It was impossible for him to affect the Daynight clan from Gaia’s Swamp.
Lu Yin appeared in the sky.
The Lu Elite Troops bowed. “Alliance Leader.”
Zhuo Daynight turned towards Lu Yin but did not bow. After all, she was not his subordinate. Lu Yin had asked for her to help him out by temporarily filling the position of the Lu Elite Troops’ deputy commander, as he had been unable to find anyone else who both had the ability and was trustworthy.
Nightqueen Yanqing and the other Nightkings kept a wary eye on Lu Yin. Their gazes were filled with fear, helplessness, and hatred.
“Lu Yin, release me! I helped you before and even rescued you. If not for me, you would have never been able to safely leave the Northline Flowzone. If not for me, you would have been killed by the Daynight clan,” Nightking Yuanjing begged.
Lu Yin glanced over. “You’re right, Nightking Yuanjing. You helped me quite a few times, but that was also due to my own efforts. Have you found the Third Nightking yet?”
Nightking Yuanjing’s voice was hoarse. “Please, let me go. I won’t be your enemy.”
Lu Yin smirked. “My enemy? You’re overthinking it. The Sealed Cage Technique is quite interesting, isn’t it?”
Everyone stared at Lu Yin in astonishment, including Zhuo Daynight.
“You activated the Sealed Cage Technique?” Zhuo Daynight asked in disbelief.
Lu Yin’s gaze swept over Zhuo Daynight and the rest of the Daynight clan. “I’m not sure if any of you know what sort of status the Daynight clan used to have. Let me tell you…”
In addition to physically defeating the Daynight clan, Lu Yin wanted to destroy their will as well.
They believed themselves to be one of the strongest powers in the entire Innerverse, and the members of the clan had always been extremely arrogant. Even when they had lost one of their inheritance stones, they had actually bragged that nobody would dare to touch such a thing and that it would be quickly returned to them. Nightking Zhenwu had tortured the members of the Fireplume Tribe and bullied everyone he saw, and it all steemed from his overweening arrogance.
At this moment, Lu Yin wanted the clan to understand their true status: slaves. They had been slaves to the Bai family, the masters of the Celestial Frost Sect.
“That’s impossible! You’re lying!” Nightking Leng screamed. He tried to get up to attack Lu Yin, but a spear skewered his leg, and he collapsed to the ground.
Lu Yin calmly answered, “I don’t need to lie. If not for the First Nightking who killed the members of the Bai family, this place would have never been called Daynight Flowzone, and it would still be Celestial Frost Flowzone. The family ruling this place would also be the Bai family instead of the Nightkings.
“Even the Sealed Cage Technique wasn’t created by the First Nightking—he merely altered it a bit.”
