High above the heavens, a lone man stood gazing below the earth. His eyes were full of brilliance and pride. He was wearing a golden robe behind it were a symbol that formed like the dragons. A golden kind of aura was circling around his body. This man was the Emperor of this world. For the past hundreds of thousands of years, he stood above and surpassed countless so-called geniuses and monsters.
At that moment, suddenly his surroundings started to change. He was no longer in his world instead he was outside. The place that he arrived was like a bottomless void. But right before him, countless of worlds appeared.
“You dare challenged my position in this world?”
Suddenly a voice was heard out of nowhere, his tone was cold and full of killing intent. It was an old man’s voice. He knew that someone was higher above him in his world and that was this old man. After encountering a mysterious tomb in his world he had known that his current world was in the Lower Realm. But still, every world had an owner they were known as Immortals.
Those that have reached the level of Immortals was only recognized and decided by the Upper Realms and on the upper realm, there were more a thousand times stronger than the Immortal that currently resides in his world.
“Yes, I’m challenging your position, with the rules of the trials of the immortal.”
“You!” The Old man’s face started to turn ugly, he eyes were full of rage.
Trials of the Immortal was a rule that he had read in the mysterious tomb. The Trials of the Immortal was the first step on being recognized from the Upper Realm as an immortal and had the right to own a world.
The trial involves that the two of them would fight to the death, the person that would be left standing would gain the approval of the Upper Realms. With the trial, an Immortal from the Middle Realm would come down to be a witness to the battle.
“Wooooossh” Suddenly a middle age person appeared in their surrounding without uttering a single word he started forming hand-seals and soon a vast energy started to form a rectangular shape with both the two of them inside, the formation soon gave form and turned into a cage of energy it size was so vast that one could not see the corner.
“I Huang Ping will bear witness on this challenge. Now, the challenger shall state his name before the Immortal.” Huang Ping’s voice was full of arrogance.
Soon the old man’s face started to brighten. Huang Ping was his master’s close friend and him being the witness means that he has his support on this match if he were to lose.
“Jiang Chen.” The Emperor’s voice sounded, his voice contained no arrogance. Instead, he was excited.
“You mere mortal, you dare challenge me, Zhou Hai!?” Zhao Hai furiously roared.
“With the accordance of the rules you two will fight to the death, and for it to be fair both of you will obtain the same level of cultivation. Immortal Zhou Hai will suppress his cultivation by one level.” Huang Ping was slightly irritated the fact that the challenger didn’t even clasp his hands while introducing himself means he was arrogant and didn’t even he never put them in his eyes.
“The match shall begin!” Huang Ping shouted and soon he disappeared before them.
Soon a bright light appeared in their hands and formed a weapon, on Zhao Hai’s hand a sword that was pitch black appeared and soon a faint reddish aura circled on his sword and countless of cries from a human would be heard, this weapon itself had massacred millions of people and their souls were trapped inside the sword.
Even Huang Ping who has observing silently was a bit surprise never did he know that his friend’s disciple to obtain this kind of sword.
“Surprise? Hehe, I had to kill millions just to recognize me as its master.” Zhou Hai was full of smile, thousand years ago while doing his master’s mission he accidentally found this sword and never did he imagined that after obtaining it. It never recognized him as his master.
Soon after knowing more about the origin of the sword he started to massacre millions of people and made the sword refine the blood just to recognize him.
After seeing Jiang Chen’s face was still indifferent and soon he too used his weapon a bright light emerges on his hand and formed a crude spear. The spear looked normal but the blade was somewhat mysterious even Jiang Chen never knew the origin of the spear as he found it from the mysterious tomb where he got the knowledge about the other realms.
Even after obtaining the spear not once did it try to make contact with him. He still has not been recognized by the spear still, he could use at least half of its power on its current state.
Huang Ping was frowning upon seeing the spear, even for him who was from the Middle Realm never seen the blade’s material before, his instinct was telling him it was definitely dangerous.
“What kind of weapon is that? Do you think that can-” Before even Zhou Hai could finish speaking Jiang Chen instantly appeared right beside him and pierce him at his heart.
“Stay your hand!” Soon a boundless pressure struck on Jiang Chen forcing him to lose his balance. Huang Ping was greatly alarmed he too never did imagine that Jiang Chen was this fast within a second he appeared in front of Zhou Hai and already stabbed his spear.
“There is no need for you to kill Zhou Hai, you already won.” Huang Ping appeared before him and his face was red he was furious.
“It is a fight to death it is in the rules set by the upper realm, do you think you have more authority than the people from the upper realm?” Jiang Chen sneered and continuously stabbed his spear, but before he could stab him directly to his heart a palm was pressed on Jiang Chen’s back and a massive pressure was sent inside his body and it made him kneeled.
“You!” Jiang Chen was surprised not only did Huang Ping used his pressure to stop him, he even interfered with their match not putting the upper realm’s rules in his eyes. Soon Jiang Chen started to violently cough blood and he fell down.
The spear slowly loses its form and disappear on Zhou Hai’s chest. Zhou hai was full of shock he almost got instantly killed by a mere mortal. With the strike, his strength was suppressed and before he fell down he was supported by Huang Ping.
“Senior….” Zhou Hai was a surprised that his senior would interfere in their match.
“Shut up! You’re a disappointment to your master! If I were not the one presiding this match u would have already died!” Huang Ping was seriously furious he had to intervene between them just to let Zhou Hai lived.
“But.., the upper realm they’ll-” Zhou Hai was terrified the rules on this match was made from the upper realm if they violate the rules only death would await them. But before Zhou Hai could speak he was slapped by Huang Ping.
“Do you think I’m afraid of the upper realm!? As long as I don’t kill this guy and after a year the match will end as a draw. They’ll never know.” After Huang Ping spoke his middle age look started to disappear and from black long hair it was replaced with white and his body turned thinned. Zhou Hai was scared and surprised to see the change in Huang Ping’s body. He had never seen Huang Ping looked like this before.
“I had to use a forbidden technique and it required a great amount of life force. His body will be destroyed soon but not his soul to the upper realm will still detect that he is still living and won’t interfere, his soul will wander thru thousands of worlds till it will settle and be reincarnated. But you don’t have to be worried it would take him hundreds of thousands of years again to appear and by that time you’ll be already in the middle realm.”
Huang Ping’s voice sounded started to calm down but his face was still ugly by now he was experiencing a huge backlash from using the forbidden technique, he had to recuperate as soon as possible to avoid future problems.
Jiang Chen was still down all his body started to numb and his senses started to disappear. Never did he imagine that the one presiding over their match would interfere in their battle.
Jiang Chen was really furious but he could do nothing, with his current cultivation he was no match for them they could even kill him instantly it just happens that they were in a formal match and Huang Ping was unable to kill him.
“I, Jiang Chen will remember this humiliation. I will remember you both and soon will take your lives!” Jiang Chen who was starting to lose his conscious suddenly started to shout and began laughing. Both Huang Ping and Zhou Hai instantly felt regret, they felt that Jiang Chen was true to his word and he will soon come back to kill both of them, in a moment Jiang Chen’s body formed a light and soon vanished.
Both Huang Ping and Zhou Hai too left and the cage of energy started to break and collapse leaving the void again with nothingness.
