Whoosh, whoosh, whoosh, one by one, a figure fell down. Only to see that spell formation leading to the Black Hell World, had been blown up to nothing more than flying ashes.
In the center of that spell formation, it had turned into a huge deep pit, which was several dozen meters in size, which showed how powerful the explosion was.
At the bottom of the deep pit, a figure kept gasping for breath, this person was none other than Duan Jian, his wings were torn, his body was covered with wounds, he slowly climbed up, and finally stumbled and fell to the ground.
"Duan Jian, how are you!" Du Ze and Lu Piao swept up towards Duan Jian anxiously, ready to help him up.
"Be careful!" Nie Li shouted lowly, he sensed it, there was an extremely terrifying aura in the air.
Du Ze and Lu Piao had only just approached Duan Jian's side when they heard two booms, Du Ze and Lu Piao were both sent flying and fell heavily to the ground, spitting out blood furiously.
"Du Ze, Lu Piao, are you guys okay?" Nie Li shouted, his full attention ready for battle, a dangerous aura that spread all around him, causing him to feel a sense of suffocating fear.
"I'm fine!" Du Ze said with great difficulty, as an expert of the Dragon Dao Realm, only one strike and he was injured like this, this was something that had never happened before.
Lu Piao was also lying on the ground panting, he couldn't move at all.
A very scruffily dressed old man steeply appeared in front of them, this old man was the same old man Nie Li had met inside the Black Hell World earlier.
His eyes were cloudy as he muttered, "There is no beginning, there is no beginning, there is no end."
An incomparably powerful pressure instantly descended on Nie Li's body, and that terrifying aura locked Nie Li in place, making him completely unable to move.
What a terrifying strength!
Nie Li stared at the old man with trepidation, his palms inside, already pinching a sweat.
"The Black Hell World, I created it." That old man looked at Nie Li, "You can't violate the rules of the Black Hell World."
"Old grandpa, did we have some kind of misunderstanding, not knowing that we, violated that one rule of the Black Hell World?" Nie Li said awkwardly.
"All people who walk out of the Black Hell World can't come back, that's the rule of the Black Hell World." The old man said calmly.
"This ......," Nie Li glanced at Duan Jian, "we don't know this rule, the so-called one who doesn't know is not to blame ...... "
"So I didn't kill him, I only punished him slightly!" The old man said calmly, his gaze fixed on Nie Li, "But none of that matters anymore, I'm not here because of him, I'm here because of you."
"Me?" Nie Li's heart was startled as he understood something in an expansive manner.
"I guess you already know, why I'm here." The old man stared at Nie Li, "Wuji originally had no beginning, and there is no beginning before there is no end. You and I are both inheritors of the Empyrean Emperor, and inheritors kill each other to be able to gain each other's power."
"Is that so?" Nie Li looked at the old man, his heart filled with alarm, this old man's strength was definitely far beyond his imagination.
Nie Li couldn't see through this old man's strength at all, facing this old man, Nie Li felt that he had no chance of winning.
A ray of brilliant light flashed in the old man's eyes as he swept a glance at Nie Li: "It's just a pity that you're still too weak right now." The old man let out a long sigh, "Even if I kill you, I won't be able to raise my cultivation much."
Nie Li looked at the old man and said, "Senior, that cultivation technique might just be a trap, trying to lure us into killing each other."
"Oh? Is that so?" The old man glanced at Nie Li indifferently, "It's just a pity that I've already tested it."
"I've already killed two inheritors of the Empyrean Emperor, one of which, came from the Heavenly God Ancestral Land, and the other, my younger brother." A hint of obscurity swept through the old man's gaze.
"Your Excellency obtained the power of both of them?" Nie Li glanced at the old man and asked.
"Not bad." The old man said, "Not only did I obtain the power from them, but with the bloodline's stimulation, my strength has increased by more than several times."
Behind Nie Li, Ye Ziyun and Xiao Ning'er looked at each other, neither of them had ever heard Nie Li mention that Nie Li was some kind of inheritor of the Empyrean Emperor, and that the Empyrean Emperor actually had such a rule.
"The inheritors of the Empyrean Emperor should only be you and me." The old man looked at Nie Li and said, "Unfortunately, killing you now won't be of much help to me."
Nie Li looked at the old man and saw an imperceptible look of sadness flash across his face. This old man was so unkempt, spending his days in a muddle, so he must have been holding a grudge for killing his brother. Nie Li's heart moved and said, "Why would senior kill your brother, is cultivation really that important?"
"We were all constantly pushed forward by fate, ever since we cultivated the Empyrean Emperor's technique, my brother and I kept hunting down and killing other inheritors, eventually killing our way up to the Heavenly God Ancestral Land. We did kill that inheritor, and my brother was seriously injured, and in the end he made me whole." The old man's eyes were filled with sadness.
"Was it worth it?" Nie Li looked at the old man and let out a long sigh, "For the sake of a cultivation, but losing someone dear to me."
"Is it worth it, I don't know anymore. I'm like a wandering ghost, wandering in this world for more than 300 years." The old man said calmly, "Between you and me, there will be a battle eventually, and you are the last inheritor."
Nie Li shook his head and said, "Senior, don't you think it's strange? Why would the Empyrean Emperor, leave a stone tablet like that. We are killing in the cage, maybe, someone is watching us from outside the cage."
A brilliant light swept through the old man's eyes as he stared at Nie Li for half a day.
"I guess senior's heart has long had doubts, right?" Nie Li said with a faint smile at the corner of his mouth, "This should also be the reason why senior didn't make a move against me. Because after leaving senior alone, maybe the people outside the cage came in."
"Kid, you are very smart." The old man said calmly, "I thought about it for countless years before I slowly realized it. The Empyrean Emperor should not have died, and the Empyrean Emperor himself, should have practiced that technique."
"Since senior understands, then why don't we join forces?" Nie Li said tentatively.
"Join forces?" The old man laughed out loud, "With your current strength? Kid, I'm afraid you'll have to cultivate for another hundred years before you can reach my current level."
"That's not necessarily true." Nie Li smiled and said, "The Empyrean Emperor is incredibly talented and has cultivated for countless long years, his cultivation level is already unknown to what extent, I'm afraid that if I were to face off against him on strength alone, I wouldn't have the slightest chance of winning."
