“I can promise you one thing”
The Heavenly Emperor silently looked at him, waiting for what he wanted to say.
Gu Qing Shan continued: “During this crucial period of exploration of the great tomb, Star Gazer city is willing to live in peace with the Heavenly Palace—— we can agree to a ceasefire to avoid benefiting the Sequences hiding in the shadows”
“Is that it?” the Heavenly Emperor asked.
Gu Qing Shan chuckled and replied: “What else do you want? I’ve already asked Star Gazer city for a confirmation, if you are the City Lord of the Heavenly Palace, it’s impossible for you to also become the City Lord of Star Gazer city”
“What if I can?” the Heavenly Emperor said.
Gu Qing Shan paused briefly and exclaimed: “That’s impossible!”
——-the Heavenly Emperor really is hiding inside Star Gazer city.
Only a citizen of Star Gazer city would qualify to become its City Lord.
Since this Creator Entity was able to directly take control over the fake Heavenly Emperor, they must be capable of a terrifying secret technique that I haven’t heard of.
How many people can they take control of at once?
Following this train of thought, if I pledge my allegiance to them, would they be able to take over me and my existence?
If they can take control over countless living beings, would they be able to turn all living beings into a spare body?
That’s such a nasty ability.
Just by imagining that little bit, Gu Qing Shan had already started to feel a chill in his stomach.
With so little information, this was the extent of what he could consider.
As for what exactly the other party’s ability was, or if it had deeper applications, Gu Qing Shan couldn’t even begin to make conjectures about it.
Seemingly thinking of something, the Heavenly Emperor absent-mindedly muttered: “Nothing is impossible in this world, after all, even the Samsara has appeared…”
He then remained silent for a while.
Gu Qing Shan had no idea what he was thinking about at all.
Even without taking anything except information into consideration, the difference between them was too great.
“Alright, let’s not prolong this any longer, Gu Qing Shan” the Heavenly Emperor suddenly said.
“Sure, what exactly do you want?” Gu Qing Shan asked.
“Pledge your allegiance to me and become my subordinate” the Heavenly Emperor demanded.
“That’s not possible” Gu Qing Shan replied.
“You should give it some more thought——- in reality, I won’t need to spend too much force to kill you” the Heavenly Emperor said.
“If this was any other time, I’d believe in these words without question. In fact, you wouldn’t even pay attention to a tiny ant like me, but right now—–”
He continued: “Right now, I’m inside the Star Gazer Deus Machina, and the Samsara Clash for Supremacy has already begun”
“So you think I can’t act against you?” the Heavenly Emperor scoffed.
“Try it if you dare” Gu Qing Shan snapped back.
After the monster from an unknown Sequence was forced into a casket by the Samsara, nobody tried to attack me directly.
Even when this Creator Entity has taken over the Heavenly Emperor’s body, they only stopped me so that I can’t keep attacking the Heavenly Palace.
They used an illusion to try and win without a fight.
From beginning to end, this Creator Entity has actively avoided a direct confrontation.
This shows that they’re still afraid.
They’re afraid of angering the Samsara like the previous one.
And that is my hope of survival.
The Heavenly Emperor’s expression remained cold, seemingly not at all angered by Gu Qing Shan’s words.
He stared closely at the Star Gazer Deus Machina and muttered:
“…The two cities can attack one another, most likely, this is tacit permission from the Samsara. It wants to use this hostile competition to observe the Chosen Saints, especially Chosen Saints who can become a City Lord”
The scenery around them vanished in a flash.
As his vision became clear again, Gu Qing Shan found himself standing on top of the barren wasteland once again.
The great tomb river was still flowing rapidly across the wasteland.
The Star Gazer Deus Machine was standing a bit away from the Heavenly Palace.
While the Heavenly Emperor was standing right in front of the Heavenly Palace, casually waving his hand.
——-the big stink egg that was stuck to the outside of the Heavenly Palace was sent flying into the far distance before completely vanishing.
“Very well, then I shall fight you once using the rules of the Samsara, this way, no one would be able to say anything” the Heavenly Emperor declared.
He then hovered backwards until he landed on top of the Heavenly Palace’s central building.
A wave of miraculous fluctuations began to radiate from his body.
Standing in the distance, Gu Qing Shan noticed it right away.
Lines of bloody red text quickly appeared:
[Warning, the other party has invoked the power of Miracles]
[The power of Miracles has surrounded your body with the following setting:]
[During the next battle between the two cities, you will be defeated, which will lead to your death]
Gu Qing Shan scanned through the message and asked without pause: “Why didn’t he simply invoke a miracle where Star Gazer city would be destroyed by the Heavenly Palace?”
The Supreme Sequence replied: [This is the Samsara Clash for Supremacy, which the Samsara is constantly monitoring. If he directly used a miracle to destroy a Samsara city, it would be too unfair, in fact, he could have simply used a miracle to declare himself the master of the Samsara—–]
[Do you think that the Samsara would accept such a master?]
“I understand, then I still have a chance” Gu Qing Shan sounded glad.
He fell down on the spot.
A second later, he suddenly stood back up on his feet and looked at the void of space in front of him.
A few more lines of bloody red text appeared:
[One of the two established outcomes of the miracle has been fulfilled]
[The power of Miracles had established another outcome: During your battle with the Creator Entity, you will be defeated]
Gu Qing Shan swiftly read through the messages and turned towards the Heavenly Palace:
Instantly, more lines of bloody red text appeared:
[—-You have been defeated!]
[Both established outcomes of the miracle has been fulfilled]
[Following this, the power of Miracles will no longer be able to interfere with your battle]
Gu Qing Shan asked right away: “Can’t the Creator Entity repeatedly use the power of Miracles?”
[Within a short span of time, miracles cannot occur repeatedly on the same individual] the Sequence answered.
“Why not?” Gu Qing Shan asked.
[Because it’s a ‘miracle’] the Sequence replied.
“Got it” Gu Qing Shan said.
He turned towards the other party.
Now that I’ve dispelled the power of Miracles, what else can the Heavenly Emperor do?
All of a sudden, the Heavenly Emperor could be seen looking at him with a look of disdain.
“Shrewd trickster… very well, I shall take your life myself…”
He then pointed his hand towards the Heavenly Palace.
The paper sheet that was hovering above the Heavenly Palace began to give off a bright colorful light that flowed into the city below.
The Heavenly Palace began to rumble.
“So many Merits…” Gu Qing Shan appeared solemn.
The Heavenly Emperor was using a huge amount of Merits to repair the Heavenly Palace and rapidly upgrade it at the same time.
A mechanical tunnel opened up on the Star Gazer Deus Machina’s back.
Gu Qing Shan then reached behind his back and pulled out a glowing black light blade from inside the tunnel.
The Heavenly Emperor casually waved his hand.
The Star Gazer Deus Machina was sent flying like a blurred image, only stopping after skidding a long distance on the ground.
Gu Qing Shan quickly reconsidered the situation.
His power alone is far above the level of Star Gazer city at this point in time.
But unlike the Sequence monster from before, he doesn’t dare to destroy a creation of the Samsara.
He needs to fight using a method recognized by the Samsara.
Behind the Heavenly Emperor, the Heavenly Palace was now giving off an almost solid aura of rainbow light.
—–the Heavenly Emperor wants to control the Heavenly Palace’s attack and destroy Star Gazer city with it!
That is a method recognized by the Samsara!
Gu Qing Shan clenched his teeth and pressed a button on the blade.
The entire blade rapidly collapsed upon itself before once again reassembling into the shape of a giant machine gun that glowed with blue light.
The giant machine gun started blasting off with bright bursts of fire.
The Heavenly Emperor glanced over and casually drew a huge black circle in the void of space.
All the howling bursts of fire entered the huge black circle and vanished without a trace.
“It’s useless, both you and your city will be obliterated today” the Heavenly Emperor casually declared.
Gu Qing Shan turned towards the Heavenly Emperor’s back.
The Heavenly Palace was still continuously transforming, seemingly attempting to morph into some sort of ancient mythical artifact.
Gu Qing Shan said regretfully: “Seems like I truly won’t be able to defeat you today”
“Then you’ve accepted reality, I will be coming for your life soon” the Heavenly Emperor said.
“No, I still have a secret technique I haven’t used” Gu Qing Shan said while overflowing with killing intent.
“Oh?” the Heavenly Emperor looked at him with a faint sarcastic expression on his face.
But Gu Qing Shan was dead serious.
That’s right, despite the current circumstances, he still had a secret technique.
This was something he learnt the first time he met Little Dusk, when they were fighting together against a group of bounty hunters.
Gu Qing Shan grunted: “Transform”
Instantly, the Star Gazer Deus Machina knelt down on the ground and started to restructure itself in such a short time that it looked chaotic.
—–it had turned into an interstellar warship!
The original form that Star Gazer city was in!
Gu Qing Shan ordered: “Warp”
[Initiating warp] a mechanical voice responded.
The air around the interstellar warship began to become distorted.
At the very next instant.
The giant spaceship that was several hundred meters in length had vanished into the void of space, nowhere to be seen over the barren wasteland.
While that seemed like it would take a long time, everything actually occurred in the blink of an eye.
The Heavenly Emperor was still standing on top of the Heavenly Palace with one hand raised, ready to receive the attack.
The wasteland was now literally devoid of anything noteworthy.
His opponent was no longer there.
He slowly lowered his hand and looked down at the Heavenly Palace.
When Gu Qing Shan attacked the Heavenly Palace earlier, the city had almost collapsed, so it took a bit too much time to both repair and upgrade it.
Even now, the Heavenly Palace’s upgrade was still unfinished.
Star Gazer city was an advanced technological weapon, so it had the capability to change its combat mode depending on the situation.
For example, transforming its shape and employing various means of mobility.
——not to mention the functions granted to it by the Samsara.
Gu Qing Shan… seems to have a relatively profound understanding of technology…
After remaining silent for a few moments, the Heavenly Emperor finally confirmed his suspicions.
“It seems… I won’t be able to catch up…”
He muttered in a low voice, displaying clear irritation for the first time.
