Zhao Gongming smiled and said, “It’s very simple. Just don’t kill some key people.”
Bi Xiao was stunned and asked curiously, “Then who is the key person?”
“The person with the top position in Mount Numinous!”
Yun Xiao looked at Lu Ping and asked with a smile in his eyes, “Am I right?”
Lu Ping spread his hands and said with a smile, “I really don’t know about this. What do you mean by not completely falling out with each other before? This depends on your understanding.”
Lu Ping really didn’t know about these things.
Who knew how the leeway between these immortals was calculated?
Zhao Gongming said with a smile, “It’s fine if we don’t kill important people. As long as we capture them and cut off their cultivation, it’s enough.”
Qiong Xiao also said with a relaxed face, “This time, the Western Church has brought out Shao Deng. That guy is just a defeated opponent of my older brother and older sister. There’s nothing to worry about!”
When she mentioned Shao Deng, Zhao Gongming’s expression was a little ugly. He gritted his teeth and said, “I can use this opportunity to snatch back my Sea-Pacifying Pearl!”
After Shao Deng obtained Zhao Gongming’s Sea-Pacifying Pearl, he relied on his cultivation to improve greatly, and his combat strength also increased greatly.
It could be said that he was one of the people who had obtained the greatest benefits from the battle to ascend to godhood.
But one had to know that this treasure was Zhao Gongming’s.
Zhao Gongming was naturally reluctant.
“Lu, what do you think we should do? Where should we start?” Yun Xiao asked Lu Ping.
Lu Ping smiled bitterly in his heart. “She’s treating me like a military advisor.”
He hadn’t guessed incorrectly.
Yun Xiao knew that she wasn’t a resourceful person. It was all thanks to Lu Ping’s plan that she was able to quickly and safely take over many planets in the southeast star domain.
One had to know that Yang Jian only had about half of Yun Xiao’s planets, and there were even more casualties.
Unfortunately, Lu Ping did not speak rashly this time. Instead, he smiled and said, “I don’t know what to do either. Please make your own decision, Madam!”
Lu Ping was not the kind of person who did not know his own limits.
He knew how powerful he was.
Right now, he knew nothing about the other planets. This was one of the reasons. The other reason was that he had never commanded a war before.
If he were to speak carelessly, it might lead to the deaths of countless people. Under such circumstances, Lu Ping would not speak carelessly.
Another reason was that Lu Ping did not have much of a sense of belonging to the Heavenly Court. If he were to talk about Western religions, he might not have a good impression of them, but he was still very familiar with Kong Xuan, Sun Wukong Zhu Bajie.
It was not what Lu Ping wanted to do at this point in time.
Therefore, Lu Ping didn’t even think about it and directly rejected Yun Xiao’s request for ideas.
After hearing Lu Ping’s words, Yun Xiao was a little disappointed.
However, she didn’t say anything else and only said, “In that case, you can go back first.”
Lu Ping didn’t say anything else and just left on his own.
In the starry sky, Yun Xiao, Zhao Gongming, as well as Shao Deng, Kong Xuan, Sun Wukong, and Zhu Bajie were gathered.
They looked at each other.
“Fellow Daoist Yun Xiao, fellow Daoist Gongming, long time no see!” Shao Deng smiled.
He greeted Yun Xiao and Zhao Gongming.
Sun Wukong, Kong Xuan, and the others had solemn expressions.
Sun Wukong was old friends with Yun Xiao, but he didn’t say anything at this moment.
Yun Xiao looked at Shao Deng and said coldly, “Shao Deng, what is your Western Church trying to do? How dare you incite people from the lower realm to disobey the rule of the Heavenly Court!”
Shao Deng smiled and said, “These planets are controlled by people who believe in our Western Church. Naturally, they can’t ascend to the Heavenly Court. Moreover, the Heavenly Court doesn’t have proper jurisdiction over ordinary cultivators, right? Moreover, it was said that the Saint sect is not controlled by the Heavenly Court.”
These words were true.
The people of the Saint sect still had some privileges.
Even the Jade Emperor had to give some face to the personal disciples of the Saint sect.
Therefore, the Western sect had been independent of the Heavenly Court for many years. They had even been tacitly allowed to compete with the Heavenly Court for the merit points.
“I am now the Emperor of the southeast star domain. I will limit you to three months to withdraw from the southeast star domain. Otherwise, I won’t hold back.” Yun Xiao didn’t care about what he said and directly gave him an ultimatum.
Shao Deng shook his head and said with a smile, “It’s impossible to withdraw. If fellow Daoist Yun Xiao insists on fighting, then we can only fight once.”
As he spoke, twenty-four Sea-Pacifying Pearls flew out and floated around his body.
Yun Xiao’s eyes were ice-cold, and the Primordial Golden Dipper also flew out.
The great battle was about to start!
Yun Xiao wasn’t in a hurry to attack, because after so many years, no one knew if the other party had any strange spells.
The other one was Kong Xuan!
The two had never made a move directly, but Yun Xiao knew Kong Xuan’s strength.
Against such an expert, even if she had the Primordial Golden Dipper, she did not dare be careless.
Especially now that Shao Deng and Kong Xuan were working together, it would be very troublesome.
Although she also had Zhao Gongming on his side, Zhao Gongming, who had lost twenty-four Sea-Pacifying Pearls, had his combat strength greatly reduced.
It was still unknown how much of an impact he could have on the battle situation.
Back then, Yun Xiao had been able to take down the twelve Golden Immortals of Chanism in one fell swoop, and the Nine-Bend Yellow River formation had played an important role. However, the problem was that back then, it was the Xiqi Army that wanted to attack King Zhou, so they had no choice but to enter the formation.
Otherwise, they would not be able to advance.
However, now that she had set up the Nine-Bend Yellow River formation, unless the other party was stupid, they would definitely not enter the formation.
The Jade Emperor’s orders were orders, but her own life was her own life.
No one would be careless.
In reality, Shao Deng was also pretending to be calm.
Towards Yun Xiao, he was still unusually calm in his heart, but he knew that he could not retreat!
If he retreated now, it would only make Yun Xiao look down on him.
The atmosphere was somewhat stagnant.
They were all clear that the most crucial point was the victory or defeat of these top experts.
However, they had to fight. Negotiations were always based on the foundation of martial strength.
If the other party did not value them, then there was no need to talk about it.
The Primordial Golden Dipper slowly grew bigger. Golden light shot out, directly enveloping Shao Deng and the others. At this moment, Kong Xuan’s eyes widened. Five-Colored Divine Light shot out simultaneously. The light that filled the sky shone brilliantly in the universe. It was extremely gorgeous!
The golden light and the Five-Colored Divine Light clashed head-on!
For a moment, neither side was able to do anything to the other.
Right at this moment, Bi Xiao opened her palm, and the Golden Dragon Shears transformed into two huge dragons that flew out.
The Sea-Pacifying Pearl beside Shao Deng also flew out.
The golden light exploded apart, and the Five-Colored Divine Light scattered.
The Golden Dragon Shears and Sea-Pacifying Pearl seemed to have been greatly affected, and they both paused.
A loud noise was heard, and the curtains of the battle were drawn. Zhao Gongming was up against Sun Wukong. After Zhao Gongming lost the Sea-Pacifying Pearl, he only had his weapon, the Divine Whip, left. He was also in a difficult battle against Sun Wukong’s weapon, Zhu Bajie was up against Qiong Xiao. The great battle with the long sword lasted for seven days and seven nights!
These people were all very strong, but they were all around the same level.
In the end, Yun Xiao relied on the Primordial Golden dipper to slightly beat Kong Xuan. However, Shao Deng suppressed Bi Xiao and her Golden Dragon Shears.
Sun Wukong and Zhao Gongming were locked in a stalemate.
Zhu Bajie was chased by Qiong Xiao, but it did not have much of an effect on the situation.
Overall, neither side could do anything to the other. Even if one side had a slight advantage, it was not enough to secure victory.
In the end, both sides withdrew their troops and retreated!
This battle left Yun Xiao with a lingering fear.
She was still fine, but Bi Xiao and Shao Deng had exchanged blows several times, and she was the one who had saved the situation.
To Yun Xiao, the most important thing was her two younger sisters and her big brother, Zhao Gongming.
She would never forget the pain she had felt when Zhao Gongming had died back then.
After returning to the Immortal stage, Yun Xiao’s expression was dark as she immediately wrote a letter to the Jade Emperor asking for help!
To put it bluntly, if she couldn’t beat him, she would just shake him.
Just as the battle ended.
The saints and the Jade Emperor heard Hong Jun’s voice at the same time!
“Come to the Purple Firmament Palace!”
These simple words represented the will of the Heavenly Dao.
Soon, all the saints went to the Purple Firmament Palace.
This time, the palace doors were wide open.
The Jade Emperor came a little too late.
When he entered, the others had already arrived.
Zhun Ti said in a strange tone, “As expected of the lord of the three realms. Even the Dao ancestor has to wait for you.”
The Jade Emperor was furious, but he did not dare retort. He quickly went to Hong Jun and bowed. “Dao ancestor, I’m late. Please forgive me!”
