Long Live Summons! - Chapter 771.2
Huge thanks to Nathas for sponsoring 3 chapters of Long Live Summons! (2/3)
Yue Yang was the first to take action. With a single wave of his right hand, Hui Tai Lang leapt to his feet.
He pressed down lightly with his hand and Hui Tai Lang immediately transformed into a World Destroying Demon Wolf.
Huge and unmatched.
Capable of destroying the heavens and swallowing the world.
The moment Hui Tai Lang transformed into a World Destroying Demon Wolf, regardless of whether it was Lord Ling Yun, City Lord Tu Hai, Prince Wu Hai, or even the Heaven Rankers of the Dark Realm, they were all shocked into silence. The Power of Law! Although it was not obvious which law it belonged to, what they all had witnessed was Yue Yang using the Power of Law.
During that moment of shock, Hui Tai Lang attacked.
He opened his huge mouth and directly swallowed a Dark Realm fallen warrior at Heaven Rank, Level 2 strength.
The enemy formation was instantly disrupted.
Lord Ling Yun, Tu Hai, and the others were overjoyed and immediately chased after Hui Tai Lang… The encircling enemy could have intercepted them but they were a bit hesitant due to Hui Tai Lang’s huge mouth that could devour the sky and the sun. Even though Hui Tai Lang had swallowed a Heaven Ranker, it still was not enough for him. In the blink of an eye, he summoned his grimoire and it appeared in the sky. To the amazement of their enemies, two more Hui Tai Langs appeared. Both attacked, in different directions, each swallowing a Heaven Ranker.
“Take them away!” With one finger, Yue Yang shot out a long double-edged blade of [Invisible Sword Qi], which cut through the black arrows fired by, and golden spears thrown by, two Dark Realm Heaven Rank, Level 5 warriors. Next, he flew up to an extremely high altitude before spreading his hands, then summoning and releasing his [Heaven’s Fury Fire Lotus], to block the other Heaven Rank, Level 5 Dark World warriors from chasing after the fleeing Hui Tai Langs.
“Awoo!” Hui Tai Lang and his two grey wolf [Clones], whose appearance was incredibly lifelike, left quickly, doing their best to escort the group to safety.
Lord Ling Yun and Eighth Prince both use their most powerful skills to clear away the Dark Realm warriors in front of them.
Meanwhile, City Lord Tu Hai summoned a great gust of wind, bringing the entire group out from within the circle of their enemies.
After they had rushed out of the encirclement, they turned around and saw that Yue Yang was now using his [Eternal Wheel] Domain of Power to freeze all of the Dark Realm Heaven Rankers that had surrounded him in mid-air.
Because of the huge difference in their strengths, it was impossible for them to return to help him.
To return would mean that everything Yue Yang had done would have been in vain… Lord Ling Yun immediately pulled Xue Tan Lang and Prince Tian Luo over to him while shouting: “Go on. Third Young Master will definitely be able to escape!”
Tu Hai dragged Xiang Wen and Tudor while Prince Wu Hai caught hold of Ye Kong and Fatty Hai. The one person remaining, butler Jiao Shi, who could no longer keep up, turned back while shouting, “You guys go on ahead, I’ll go back and help Third Young Master!”
When Tu Hai saw Jiao Shi turning back and going to Yue Yang’s aid, he was deeply moved.
Although he had hired Jiao Shi as his butler, and left everything to Jiao Shi, in his heart, he had never really trusted this person.
Unexpectedly, in the final moments of life and death, this butler, whom he had never really trusted, proved by his actions that he was actually the best butler in the world.
When Jiao Shi turned back, Tu Hai didn’t even have to think about it. He knew Jiao Shi was destined to die. Their enemy’s strength was just too great, it would be impossible for Jiao Shi to even get close to Yue Yang, much less help him. He would probably be slain the moment their enemies caught up to him. Rather than saying that he was returning to aid Third Young Master, it would be more accurate to say that he was choosing to commit suicide, lest he drag the others down and make his master feel guilty. At this moment, City Lord Tu Hai even had the thought of throwing away the useless Tudor and taking this loyal butler, Jiao Shi, with him instead.
But it was too late to act on that regret.
“Go!” Lord Ling Yun landed a flying kick on Tu Hai, who had stopped in his tracks to look back. Then he roared, ”Do you want to let Jiao Shi’s sacrifice go to waste? The sooner we get out of here the safer Third Young Master will be!”
“Get out of my way!” Although Eighth Prince of the Golden Crow Tribe was wounded, his strength was still formidable.
He released a [Golden Radiant Sun Blast] which combined with Xue Tan Lang’s [Ice Roar] and Prince Tian Luo’s [Doomsday Flowing Fire]. This combination drove back over a dozen Heaven Rankers that were hot in pursuit.
Hui Tai Lang took the rearmost position. Only after he had gobbled up another couple of fallen Heaven Rankers did the remaining pursuers choose to retreat. In the midst of the distant flashing lights and rolling thunderous strikes, Lord Ling Yun, City Lord Tu Hai, and Prince Wu Hai, each of them holding onto a person with each hand, fled far away, into the sky, at top speed. They had no choice but to flee. If it weren’t for the fact that the Forbidden Light Star device had already been activated they would have stayed and fought alongside Third Young Master.
But now, as the seconds continued to tick down, Rizhao City was about to explode at any moment.
If they had not yet passed beyond the mountain range within ten minutes, they would still be in danger.
Also fleeing together in the same direction as them were various demonic beasts and war beasts from all over the mountain range. Some poured out in droves, like the Grey Sparrows that were almost useless but had a keen sense of danger. Some of them even rushed to get ahead of Lord Ling Yun and the others…
Eighth Prince Wu Hai of the Golden Crow Tribe looked behind them.
One after the other, Tu Hai and Ling Yun turned to look back, to peer at the battlefield which was already quite far away. The huge [Heaven’s Fury Fire Lotus] exploded over the field of battle and the force of the impact rippled out, spreading far and wide. Waves of scorching heat rushed towards them. The waves were right behind them, about to catch up!
This wasn’t the explosion from the Forbidden Light Star. It was clearly Third Young Master’s killer move. The amount of its power was equally terrifying.
Prince Wu Hai silently made a comparison in his heart. He suddenly realized, as a Prince of the Golden Crow Tribe, even if he tried his best and released all his power at once it would still not be comparable, in any way, to the explosion he saw in front of him, right now. In that case, would not Third Young Master’s strength be far above his own Heaven Rank, Level 5 strength? No wonder he had been able to remain calm when he was facing over a hundred Heaven Rankers.
“Ehhh, this strength…” Old Chess Master, who was still playing chess in the Radiant Light Secret Passage, suddenly paused.
The chess piece he had been holding in one of his hands fell onto the chessboard.
He felt a pang of danger at the level of power that the explosion of Yue Yang’s [Heaven’s Fury Fire Lotus] had just released.
Just as Old Chess Master stood up, a hand slowly reached out from behind him and gently picked up the chess piece that had fallen onto the board. Shocked, Old Chess Master turned his head around to take a look. The most unlikely person appeared before him.
“It’s you?” Old Chess Master asked, surprised. The person before him was actually the insignificant butler, Jiao Shi.
“It’s me.” replied butler Jiao Shi as he casually sat down across from Old Chess Master, as if he was going to play a game with him. The air he exuded was completely different from what he had shown before.
“You’re one of the four kings that served under the Prison Emperor. You’re the Sky Prison King, Gao Peng. How are you still alive?” Old Chess Master was filled with disbelief. His expression showed even more shock than his seeing a dead man that had crawled out of his own coffin. There were a great many dead people in the world. If any of them had been resurrected, Old Chess Master would not have been so shocked. However, this man in front of him, he had killed him, with his own hands—six thousand years ago!
“Yes, I’m still alive, but it took me a long time to regain my full strength. Most importantly, I lost some of my memories, so it took me even longer to recall all of those memories.” The Sky Prison King, Gao Peng, who had been disguised as butler Jiao Shi, sighed, “Time flies by so quickly. In a blink of an eye, over six thousand years have passed.”
“You were the one who orchestrated all that happened today? It’s a pity that no matter how elaborate your plans were, you’re still too late. The Forbidden Light Star device has already been activated.” Old Chess Master quickly regained his composure, then sat down and calmly picked up a chess piece and placed it on the board.
“You’re still the same as always. Always so sure of yourself.” Gao Peng, who had previously disguised himself as Jiao Shi suddenly smiled, “Shall I tell you a piece of bad news?”
“What could be worse than watching your companions get blown into a [Black Hole Seal], unable to save them and bring them back to life?” Old Chess Master sneered back.
“Hmph, for example, what if the Prison Emperor has been reborn!?” Gao Peng heartily laughed.
“Impossible!” Old Chess Master jumped up, he was so surprised.
“Of course it’s impossible for Prison Emperor Zhan Feng to be reborn. However, there’s already a new Prison Emperor that was born in Tong Tian Tower. He’s younger, stronger, and even more outstanding! ” Gao Peng picked up a chess piece and made a move on the board,
“Certainly. It was brought here from Tong Tian Tower by that young man. This is a product of the wisdom of the warriors of Tong Tian Tower! You who always called yourself the “King of Chess”, you who were always so sure of yourself—you have already lost!”
“It’s him…” As he recalled a recent memory of Yue Yang, Old Chess Master finally understood, and could not help but shiver.
Damn. He hated knowing full well that a new Prison Emperor had been born.
Yet had been unable to recognise him.
He had even exchanged chess puzzles with him. Who would have known that his opponent already had him dancing, right in the palm of his hand?
Old Chess Master suddenly felt a dull pain in his chest. He lost control for a moment and spit out a mouthful of blood. Instantly, his appearance aged by a thousand years.
 TN: ‘Break’ is an unofficial term that is often shouted when a player breaks out from their opponent’s siege. It sounds cool and very normal when you shout it in Chinese.
