Chapter 1688: The Reappearance of the Unholy One (1)
‘After the Unholy One had fallen, there’s no more god in the world?’
Lu Zhou had never considered himself the Unholy One in the past. However, after he learned more about the Unholy One and obtained his treasures and memories, he was determined to return to the Great Void as the Unholy One and solve all the mysteries in his heart. He really did not expect the Nihilist Congregation to regard the Unholy One as their god.
After a moment, Lu Zhou asked, “The Nihilist Congregation believes in the Unholy One? Aren’t you afraid the Sacred Temple investigating this matter?”
Cult Leader Du replied with a smile, “You’re a supreme being, after all. There are some things you should understand better than others. Now that the Unholy One had fallen, the Sacred Temple no longer has anything to worry about. By allowing the congregation to exist, it will only serve to magnify the greatness of the Sacred Temple.”
Then, Cult Leader Du look at the clouds in the distance and let out a long sigh before he said, “Great Emperor Ming Xin is indeed the best at maintaining the balance of the world…”
There was no significant information about Ming Xin from the memories of the Unholy One that Lu Zhou obtained. Hence, it was not easy for him to make judgments about Ming Xin. After a moment, he asked, “Do you know who I am?”
Cult Leader studied Lu Zhou carefully before he shook his head and said, “There are too many experts in the Great Void. I didn’t expect there to be another one.”
‘In other words, who the f*ck knows you?!’
Lu Zhou stood with his hands on his back as he looked at Cult Leader Du and said in a dignified tone, “I’m the Unholy One.”
In fact, the Nihilist Congregation only used the Unholy One as an excuse. There were too many legends and miracles about the Unholy One.
There were three kinds of people in this world: followers, antagonists, and those who stay neutral.
The Nihilist Congregation relied on the thoughts, cultivation techniques, treasures, and influence of the Unholy One to form a new force. However, not everyone was a believer. There were many in the congregation who just used the Unholy One to satisfy their vanity.
After all, 100,000 years had passed since the Unholy One fell.
Lu Zhou’s words stunned everyone.
A complex, puzzled, solemn, and surprised expression appeared on Cult Leader Du’s face in this order. In the end, his face settled into an expression that seemed like he was looking at a fool.
It was quiet, and the atmosphere was awkward.
Even Luo Xiu, who was lying on the ground and unable to move, was speechless.
The four gray-clad cultivators behind Cult Leader Du coughed. When they finally could not endure it, they burst out laughing. However, they quickly regained their composure.
Cult Leader Du clapped his hands and said, “Your joke is quite funny.”
“Hm?” Lu Zhou frowned slightly.
“Let’s cut to the chase. What will it take for you to let Luo Xiu go?” Cult Leader Du asked as he pointed at Luo Xiu.
Lu Zhou’s voice darkened as he said, “I’ve always done what I said I will do.”
“Do you really want to fight?” Cult Leader Du asked before he lowered his voice and said, “You’re only pretending to be the Unholy One. Even if you’re the Unholy One, you still can’t act presumptuously in front of me.”
“I kept him alive until now to draw out the mastermind behind the congregation. Since you’re here… he has no more use to me,” Lu Zhou said. He had thought he could use the Nihilist Congregation to his advantage when he heard that they regarded the Unholy One as their god. However, things were not as simple as he had thought.
The world was simple, but people were complicated.
Lu Zhou raised his hand. Unnamed in the form of a sword appeared in his hand. It was shrouded in a long and slender energy sword, and it was pointed at Luo Xiu.
Cult Leader Du scoffed. “I’ve tried to be patient, but you don’t know what’s good for you.”
Cult Leader Du joined his palms together, and the four gray-clad men followed suit. Their movements were very synchronized.
Following that, a shadow appeared around each of them and merged into one before it shot toward Lu Zhou.
Lu Zhou frowned. He had never seen this before. ‘What kind of move is this? Forget it. I don’t care. Absolute strength can crush everything.’
Lu Zhou raised his hand and waved Unnamed.
An electric arc appeared and twined around Unnamed like a dragon. Every time it moved, it seemed like it could devour the space in its surroundings.
When the shadow arrived, it copied Cult Leader Du’s movement and caught Unnamed between its palms. However, as soon as it came in contact with Unnamed, the dragon-like electric arc flashed and devoured the shadow’s hands before an energy sword shot through the shadow toward Luo Xiu.
“Arghhh! Cult Leader Du, save me! Save me!” Luo Xiu was frightened out of his wits and desperately struggled to retreat.
Cult Leader Du said in a deep voice, “Rat! How dare you?!”
Then, Cult Leader Du spat out blood from his mouth that formed a blood disk.
The light disks were divided into the sun disk, moon disk, and star disk.
On the other hand, the blood disk was a kind of abnormal cultivation. Through special methods, the light disk would mutate into a blood disk, greatly increasing its power.
In the cultivation world, any light disk that did not conform to the standard was referred to as evil and unorthodox. Those who possessed different light disks such as the blood disks were condemned and hunted down.
When Lu Zhou saw the blood disk, he finally understood why the Nihilist Congregation believed in the Unholy One. After a moment, he scoffed and said, “I see… Alas, I’m different from you.”
Lu Zhou guided the energy sword toward Luo Xiu’s glabella. Then, it paused for a moment in front of Luo Xiu’s glabella.
As soon as this word was spoken, the energy sword pierced Luo Xiu’s glabella mercilessly.
The blood lotus disintegrated, releasing a Primal Qi storm.
Following that, Luo Xiu’s body literally shattered into pieces, and the pieces crawled everywhere on the ground like ants.
At the same time, the blood disk flew over.
Lu Zhou raised his hand, and Unnamed turned into a shield.
Unnamed successfully blocked the blood disk. With the divine Dao power covering the surface of the shield, the blood disk could not do anything.
