The Last Attempt
As the beam intensified, a thousand layers of space stacked on top of one
another. From the bottom, light from the heavenly lightning barely passed
The second bolt of Tai Qing Heavenly Lightning struck the inter-spatial
wall with a resounding thud!
Alice was startled at the outcome. â€œIt worked?!â€
â€œNoâ€¦â€ Stern and Poseidon denied at the same time.
They watched as the inter-spatial wall shake violently upon contact. It
took the effort of three main gods but in the end, it was still all in
Cracks started to appear on the wall!
â€œLetâ€™s go, weâ€™ve done our best!â€ Poseidon forced a warning
through his teeth. Without waiting for the rest, he fled the scene
Stern didnâ€™t have time to deal with Aliceâ€™s shock. He grabbed his
sisterâ€™s arm, then teleported away from the scene.
The moment the three left, the wall was pierced through like a diamond
drill through a block of concrete. When the layers of space shattered,
the bright bolt struck right into the ocean.
A few hundred nautical miles away, Poseidonâ€™s expression darkened. With
his eyesight as sharp as an eagleâ€™s, his gaze was focused on Yang
Stern cursed violently, â€œDamn it, how is it possible? I know itâ€™s the
Nine Heavenly Lightning, but Tai Qing Heavenly Lightning is only the
first one. You mean the three of us arenâ€™t even strong enough to block
â€œNo, even the Nine Heavenly Lightning differs from case to case. The
more a person goes against the laws of the universe, the stronger the
lightning will be. The last heavenly lightning weâ€™ve witnessed ten
thousand years ago was three or four times weaker than this one. Unless
Athena uses her shield, Aegis, no one can stop it,â€ said Poseidon.
Christen was still in a daze. She couldnâ€™t believe it was real.
â€œThen Yang Chenâ€¦â€ Aliceâ€™s face had lost its usual grace. She
leaned on her brotherâ€™s chest and started to grieve. She couldnâ€™t
bear to watch.
Stern grabbed his sisterâ€™s delicate shoulders. â€œThereâ€™s still one
more bolt. After everything has settled, weâ€™ll look for himâ€¦ or
whatâ€™s left of him.â€ There was sadness in his words.
At this point, beneath the storm clouds, Yang Chen was already several
meters deep in the ocean. He didnâ€™t have the luxury to think about
anything happening outside.
Before he kicked Poseidon away, Yang Chen had vaguely felt an immense
aura of fury, between the heavens and earth, lock upon himself!
He didnâ€™t know what it was, but he had a bad feeling about it.
This insufferable manic condition was one of the side effects of the
divine light, which would at the same time unleash all subconscious
potential. It meant that all his cultivated abilities would be released
in one burst without any form of restraint.
Why did he spend his last ounce of sanity kicking Poseidon away? Perhaps
it was his pride that made him do it or the fact that he vowed to destroy
Poseidon by his own strength and not rely on the heavens to aid him!
Soon after he kicked Poseidon away, he lost control of his actions. The
surging force expanded his blood vessels, and a chilling roar forced its
way out of Yang Chenâ€™s throat like the sound of grinding gears.
His entire being was squeezed by True Yuan to its limit like a compressed
rubber ball right in the path of the heavenly lightningâ€”aimed straight
at his head!
Unfortunately, there was great disparity even between all the True Yuan
in his body and the heavenly lightning.
Yang Chen felt like all of the True Yuan in his body was sucked out
within a matter of seconds. Even his Qi was spilling out his pores!
The blue bolt was stagnant for a moment, engulfing his entire body!
Yang Chen had forgotten what true pain felt like. It was nothing short of
being tormented by the fires of hell. All he was thinking of was that
death could not come sooner!
This indescribable agony, even when compared to the times he was
experimented on as a child, was at least a hundred times more intense!
The force of heavenly lightning not only caused severe physical damage,
it heavily impacted the soul too!
It was no longer about letting go of this physical body. Yang Chen was
aware that rebirth might not be a possibility after this!
His clothes had already vaporized before the lightning had struck. When
Yang Chen himself was hit, he fell into the icy waters.
The ocean swallowed his body whole. It felt like the full force of the
bolt had passed through the waters into every single cell in his body!
Other people going through Tribulation Passing stage, after facing the
wrath of the Tai Qing Heavenly Lightning, often had their souls
However, Yang Chenâ€™s body was once exposed to divine light. And it had
been fortified with long periods of Endless Resolve Restoration Scripture
practices. His body wasnâ€™t regular by any means, even when compared to
the greatest of masters!
The most peculiar thing about the Endless Resolve Restoration Scripture
was that it was the most powerful at times of utter desperation and
When the body and consciousness came into contact with the bolt, the
scripture was already functioning at speeds a thousand times faster than
normal. It rapidly converted the magical powers of the heavens and earth
into True Yuan powers within his body. This meant that his wounds were
mended as quickly as they were formed!
However, the speed of his recovery was a little slower than the speed of
destruction dealt by the bolt. It was barely keeping Yang Chen alive!
A flash of lightning only lasted seconds, but Yang Chenâ€™s suffering
felt like centuries of agony.
His body was bathed in electricity, burning into blackened ash. His blood
was boiling while his flesh started to melt. It was unimaginable
When the first bolt disappeared, Yang Chen came to the realization that
he wasnâ€™t dead yet. At the same time, the mania, caused by the divine
light back then, in his brains had disappeared. The heavenly lightning
was itself the most purifying energy between the heavens and earth. With
a whiff of its explosive energy, his mania wouldâ€™ve cleared instantly!
Yang Chen, with his last hint of consciousness, was about to cry!
Why was he suddenly in the Tribulation Passing stage?! Time wasnâ€™t
certain on the path of cultivation, some people couldnâ€™t make spiritual
advancements even after a few hundred years, while others advanced a
thousand miles in a day.
However, wasnâ€™t his advancements coming a little too quickly even for
All Yan Sanniang had done was give a vague explanation. Am I so smart
that Iâ€™ve gone beyond her understanding?Yang Chen thought.
Advancement in cultivation is great. But I have no experience, nor do I
have any protective treasures with me. How the heck am I supposed to
survive the heavenly tribulations?!
If only Yang Chen knew that the heavenly tribulations awaiting him
werenâ€™t the regular type, but the most difficult, agonizing â€کNine
Heavenly Lightningâ€™, heâ€™d probably collapse from rage or at the very
least vomit blood.
He thought heâ€™d survived the worst, that heâ€™d lived through the
disaster, but Yang Chen suddenly felt another heavnely lightning about to
Damn it! It looks like the heavens are really out for blood.
Yang Chen felt the mania creeping back in. If another bolt struck within
such a short amount of time, then his chance of survival was slim to
none! At this point, his consciousness wasnâ€™t fully recovered either.
Reincarnating at this point was nothing more than a fleeting dream!
Andâ€¦ there were so many people waiting for his return. If he died, what
would happen to his women?!
When Yang Chen started to lose hope, Poseidon, Apollo, and Diana had
built an inter-spatial wall shielding him mid-air!
Yang Chen vaguely felt the presence of the three beings. He initially
thought that there was hope, but they could barely contain nothing more
than a few seconds of its force before letting it crash on him again!
â€œWhy must you give me false hopeâ€¦â€ This was his last complaint when
Yang Chen hit rock bottom.
After another strike, Yang Chen could no longer keep himself awake. He
was completely unconscious, and amidst the raging storm and the rolling
waves, he was tossed about like a lone boat at sea.
If it werenâ€™t for the inter-spatial wall, which did save him a few
seconds for the scripture to mend a significant portion of his physical
body and consciousness, this bolt wouldâ€™ve decimated his very soul!
The storm clouds did not disappear. It seemed to have sensed that Yang
Chen wasnâ€™t completely destroyed just yet. And as if the heavens were
raging over the fact that he was still alive, it concentrated all its
power into one final bolt. It was the third and last Tai Qing Heavenly
Lightning, much more powerful than the previous!
Yang Chenâ€™s soul had sealed itself within the body, so he couldnâ€™t
sense the terrifying bolt brewing above.
At this point, the scriptureâ€™s True Yuan within Yang Chenâ€™s body was
functioning without his control. It hadnâ€™t given up on protecting its
owner. It watched the next bolt approach, and its power wasnâ€™t
something his recovery powers could fix. The Endless Resolve Restoration
Scriptureâ€™s True Yuan decided to begin â€کthe last attemptâ€™!
As if giving up on all defense, the scripture functioned autonomously to
bring all the True Yuan protecting the body to the dantian. This meant
that his body would be completely exposed to the strikes. It floated,
fully exposed, at the surface in preparation for utter destruction from
the next strike!
