No one dared to utter a single word. Langston could fight against a Supernatural by himself, but the other Supernatural could annihilate them all with ease.
Just as everyone was silent, Tyrus spoke, “I’ve already broken the third shackle.”
Upon hearing this, everyone turned to look at him.
Half a year ago, Langston brought back the Phoenix Essence and some phoenix blood after slaying the Phoenix. Though James was given the Phoenix Essence, Tyrus had been in closed-door meditation over the past six months absorbing the enormous power hidden inside the Phoenix’s blood.
Currently, he had broken free of the third shackle and was just a step away from reaching the Supernatural level.
Tyrus continued, “With the combined strength of me, the Blood Race’s Grand Patriarch, and James, we can tie one of the Supernaturals down even if we can’t defeat him.”
“Let’s get going then!” Kaiden Walchelin, the Grand Patriarch of the Blood Race, said, “Mount Bane belongs to Earth. We can’t allow these outsiders to encroach on our land. We have to defend Mount Bane even if it costs our lives.”
Thomas stepped forward and said, “While you deal with the Supernaturals, leave the rest to me.”
Apart from Tyrus, James, and Kaiden, there were also many powerful martial artists present here. In fact, there were a handful of ninth-rank martial artists.
After a brief discussion, they reached an agreement. They would launch an assault on Mount Bane.
They charged forward.
In the lead was Langston, who was followed close behind by Tyrus, Kaiden, and James. At the rear were the other ninth-rank martial artists. Meanwhile, those who had yet to cross into the ninth rank remained at the foot of the mountain. This would be a battle to the death, after all. They could lose their lives anytime.
At the peak of Mount Bane…
“Your Holiness!” A man in a black robe rushed over to Conrad and knelt before him.
Wearing a panicked expression, he said hurriedly, “Something terrible has happened!”
Conrad was in the midst of discussing the affairs of the Sealed Realm with Juniper when his subordinate barged in.
Furrowing his eyebrows, he asked, “What’s the matter?”
“Th-The earthlings have launched an assault,” the man said.
“Damn it!” Conrad stood up immediately.
Then, exuding a terrifying aura, he swiftly rushed to the scene while Juniper followed close behind.
Halfway up Mount Bane, Langston and the other martial artists were ascending the mountain when a figure came crashing from the sky.
The figure radiated a blinding golden light. Like a celestial being that descended from the heavens, he stood thirty meters in mid-air and glanced downward at the earthlings scornfully.
His face darkened, and he said coldly, “Do you have a death wish?”
Then, Juniper arrived.
“What do you think you are doing? I thought we had an agreement six months ago. You’re forbidden from trespassing into Mount Bane. Otherwise, you’ll be killed on sight.” She was also radiating a powerful aura.
The group stopped. Langston looked at the two and said, “Mount Bane belongs to Earth. How dare you outsiders occupy our land? Get out of our sight this instant. Otherwise, this will be your final resting place.”
Faced with two Supernaturals, Langston was unafraid.
“Hahaha!” Conrad cackled.
“What a joke! The strong do what they can while the weak suffer what they must! This is an immutable law of the universe. You want to retake Mount Bane? Over my dead body!”
Then, he brandished his sword.
Invisible Sword Light shredded through the air. His aura was so overwhelming that even space had become distorted.
“Do you think I’m afraid of you?” Langston roared and charged at him.
In the blink of an eye, he appeared before Conrad.
