Chapter 950: City Siege
The Blood Ax Imperial Lord had already forgotten how many years he had been living. As a star domain-level heaven lord, his lifespan was basically limitless. The calculation of age was simply meaningless.
Holding up a giant wine cup with blood-red liquid inside. He shook it a little and drank it all in one mouth.
“Inform the Divine Leaf City Lord… If he doesn’t surrender in one month, siege the city.” The Blood Ax Imperial Lord used a cold voice to command a heaven lord on his right.
“Understood.” The heaven lord stood up to acknowledge the orders.
“Imperial lord, why waste a month? With our strength, it wouldn’t be difficult to break the Divine Leaf City’s array. After all, we have the Spear of Undying.” One of the heaven lords couldn’t understand the Blood Ax Imperial Lord’s intention.
The Spear of Undying was a strategic weapon bestowed by the Undying Lord King to every commander. It contained the Undying Lord King’s energy.
“Even without the Spear of Undying, our 19th Battalion has strength to take down the Divine Leaf City. It is just a matter of time!”
“That’s right. It is just a mere universe city. Our 19th Battalion had done it before too.”
“In my opinion, we should force the Divine Leaf City Lord to surrender now. If he dares to disobey, we shall kill without mercy.”
The heaven lords were all raising their opinions.
The nearest city lord-level heaven lord on the Blood Ax Imperial Lord’s right side stood up. The Judgment Day Heaven Lord cleared his throat and said, “The imperial lord naturally has his own considerations for doing so. Firstly, the energy in the Spear of Undying is limited and each use would mean one less. The esteemed Undying Lord King will not take the initiative to replenish the energy in the Spear of Undying, unless there are merits. Secondly, the Divine Leaf City is different from other universe cities. It has the support of the World Tree’s leaf and no one knows if there would be any surprises. If the Divine Leaf City Lord is desperate, our 19th Battalion might still be able to win, but we will certainly suffer damages.”
The Blood Ax Imperial Lord nodded, “The Judgment Day Heaven Lord is correct. The Divine Leaf City KLord might be nothing, but the Divine Leaf City and the World Tree’s leaf must not be underestimated.”
Without the protection of the Divine Leaf City, not even ten Divine Leaf City Lords would be a threat to the Blood Ax Imperial Lord.
“The Blood Ax Imperial Lord has given the orders for the Divine Leaf City Lord to surrender in one month, otherwise there will be consequences.” On this day, there was a thunderous voice that echoed throughout half the Divine Leaf City.
“This is the ultimatum.”
“I wonder what the Divine Leaf City Lord will choose?”
“He is probably going to surrender. The Blood Ax Imperial Lord is too overwhelming. In the Crosswise River Star Domain, only the Crosswise River Primogenitor is able to contest.”
The heaven lords residing in Divine Leaf City were discussing.
This war wasn’t really related to them, as long as they didn’t offend the Blood Ax Imperial Lord.
A clear voice burst into the sky from the city lord residence, “Go back and tell the Blood Ax Imperial Lord to withdraw now. This isn’t a place for him to act willfully.”
“This…” Everyone was dumbfounded.
“Does the Divine Leaf City Lord have any backers? Otherwise, why wouldn’t he dare to speak with the Blood Ax Imperial Lord in this manner?”
Everyone wasn’t certain.
“Divine Leaf City Lord, I hope you can still be so arrogant after one month.” The messenger heaven lord grunted and left.
“One month?” On the streets, Li Fuchen frowned.
This war was unrelated to them, but it was definitely going to affect them.
The Divine Leaf City Lord was an impartial person and under his rule, the Divine Leaf City maintained order.
The Undying Legion was leaning towards the unorthodox side and with them ruling the city, it would most likely be disorderly.
It might even be worse than the Gloom Heaven Lord’s Gloom City.
“I hope he can win.” Li Fuchen sighed.
Blood Ax Castle…
“It seems like he has a backer. Interesting!” The Blood Ax Imperial Lord nodded and laughed.
The Judgment Day Heaven Lord sneered and said, “Even if he has a backer, he is still dead.”
A universe city was indeed hard to take down as every universe city was enveloped in supreme rate arrays.
Supreme rate arrays had different grades, low-grade, mid-grade, high-grade, and extreme-grade.
Generally speaking, low-grade supreme rate arrays couldn’t defend against city lord-level heaven lords, mid-grade supreme rate arrays couldn’t defend against star domain-level heaven lords. High-grade supreme rate arrays couldn’t defend against half-gods and only extreme-grade supreme rate arrays were unbreakable.
However, a universe city could lay down multiple supreme rate arrays.
The Divine Leaf City had two mid-grade supreme rate arrays and seven low-grade supreme rate arrays. In normal situations, star domain-level heaven lords would never be able to break it.
However, the Blood Ax Imperial Lord wasn’t an ordinary star domain-level heaven lord and the 19th Battalion wasn’t just superior in numbers. As of now, the 19th Battalion had already seized three universe cities and they were rather experienced in city sieges.
“No need to hurry. One month will be over very quickly.”
The Blood Ax Imperial Lord wasn’t anxious and he enjoyed the feeling of having control.
Life was long and if he didn’t find some entertainment for himself, it would be too dull.
“Blood Ax Imperial Lord, sell me a favor and leave the Crosswise River Star Domain.” Outside the Blood Ax Castle, an old man with closed eyes gradually materialized.
“Crosswise River Primogenitor!”
The Blood Ax Imperial Lord’s eyes looked through the Blood Ax Castle and saw the close-eyed old man.
“As long as you are willing to leave, I shall compensate you for a portion of your losses.” The Crosswise River Primogenitor.
Hearing the response, the Blood Ax Imperial Lord scoffed, “If I didn’t guess wrongly, you have already negotiated with the Divine Leaf City Lord right?”
“Is something wrong?” The Crosswise River Primogenitor didn’t deny.
“I am determined to obtain the World Tree’s leaf.” Blood Ax Imperial Lord said with an absolute tone.
“Since that is the case, this old one shall take his leave.” The Crosswise River Primogenitor knew it wasn’t possible to come to an agreement after hearing the opposition’s tone.
Divine Leaf City…
“Have you considered it?” The Crosswise River Primogenitor said to the Divine Leaf City Lord.
The Crosswise River Primogenitor only had one objective here and it was for the World Tree’s leaf.
He was willing to give a sincere offer in exchange for the World Tree’s leaf. This way, the Divine Leaf City Lord wouldn’t lose everything even if he lost the World Tree’s leaf.
But the Divine Leaf City Lord faced the Blood Ax Imperial Lord, he wouldn’t just lose everything, he might even lose his life.
As to split the World Tree’s leaf into two… They weren’t so capable.
It wasn’t realistic for the duo to use it together either as they wouldn’t know the intentions of one another.
“I can make an oath to make the trade in 100,000 years.” The Divine Leaf City Lord required the World Tree’s leaf to break through to the star domain-level.
The Crosswise River Primogenitor shook his head, “Impossible, I am already taking a huge risk to go against the Undying Legion.”
If it was another enemy, the Crosswise River Primogenitor might agree to this condition, but the enemy was the Undying Legion. To go against the Undying Legion, one must be an invincible expert or a dead person.
Once he obtained the World Tree’s leaf, he could study the mysteries and mystics of it. It might allow his strength to reach the next level.
For him to wait for 100,000 years was something impossible.
If that was the case, he would rather give up.
Ultimately, the deal didn’t go through.
One month later…
The Blood Ax Castle flew near the Divine Leaf City. Everyone was staring at the Blood Ax Castle.
“Divine Leaf City Lord, hurry up and claim your death.”
The red-skinned giant flew out. On his sides were the Wind Burst Heaven Lord and Judgment Day Heaven Lord.
“Blood Ax Imperial Lord, is there a need to be so intimidating?” The Divine Leaf City Lord appeared on the city gates.”
The Judgment Day Heaven Lord pointed at the Divine Leaf City Lord, “The imperial lord has already given you a chance, but you didn’t cherish it. It is too late to say anything now.”
“Is that even called a chance?” The Divine Leaf City Lord sneered.
“This person is the Blood Ax Imperial Lord?”
For most people, this was their first time seeing the Blood Ax Imperial Lord. Everyone’s heart was surging as they looked at the red-skinned giant looking down from above. If they could have such prowess one day, they would be able to die with no regrets.
“No wonder he is a star domain-level heaven lord.”
There were many people standing on the walls and Li Fuchen was included.
Different from others, before their spiritual awareness could get near to the Blood Ax Imperial Lord, it would be shattered by an invisible energy. As such, they could only use their naked eyes to observe. Li Fuchen’s spirit soul power was able to get near to the Blood Ax Imperial Lord and wouldn’t be detected.
In Li Fuchen’s spirit soul senses, the Blood Ax Imperial Lord was emitting a dense eternity aura and it was similar to a star. As long as it wasn’t destroyed by an external force, it would be able to exist forever. It would be fine for millions or even billions of years.
The Blood Ax Imperial Lord’s skin had an indestructible law. Li Fuchen had a feeling that even if this space-time was completely destroyed, the Blood Ax Imperial Lord’s skin wouldn’t suffer any damage.
The Blood Ax Imperial Lord’s eyes looked as though it could see the future. As long as he was willing, he could see glimpses of the future. His energy was vast like the star ocean. A slight ripple would be enough to make anyone fearful and despair.
Li Fuchen didn’t know if other star domain-level heaven lords would give him the same feeling, he just knew that the Blood Ax Imperial Lord was very powerful, extremely powerful. Without the protection of the Divine Leaf City, a trace of his qi presence was enough to slaughter countless people.
“I, the Blood Ax Imperial Lord, has led the 19th Battalion to take down three universe cities before. The Divine Leaf City shall be the fourth.” The Blood Ax Imperial Lord raised his right hand and a blood red giant ax appeared.
With a low yell, the Blood Ax Imperial Lord cleaved at the Divine Leaf City.
In everyone’s vision, a blood-colored ax cleaved over ruthlessly. It was millions of miles in size.
Above the DIvine Leaf City, nine different colored barriers burst out from different space-times. When they made contact with the blood ax, the space-time shattered like a mirror first before freezing and reverting back to normal.
“Nine layers of supreme rate arrays?” The Blood Ax Imperial Lord frowned.
In the previous universe cities he sieged, the highest number he encountered was seven layers of supreme rate arrays.
With the command, the Wind Burst Heaven Lord led a group of 64 heaven lords and formed the wind burst battle formation. The Judgment Day Heaven Lord led a group of 72 heaven lords to form a fireball battle formation.
Two battle formations blasted at Divine Leaf City.
It wasn’t over yet. From within the Blood Ax Castle, tens of thousands of saint lords flew out to form a giant spear battle formation. It was then thrust mercilessly at the Divine Leaf City.
Finally, the Blood Ax Castle had also blasted out a blood-red pillar of light.
The Blood Ax Castle was a battle castle and with enough energy source, the firepower wasn’t inferior to a star domain-level heaven lord.
With four layers of attack, the nine layers of supreme rate arrays were all revealed and were shining brightly.
At this moment, everyone in the city could only feel the ground shaking.
