Sovereign King (I)
Explosion sounds sounded out from inside the Secret Palace, causing everyone in the Evil Sword Sect to hear it. The Law Enforcement Clan Elder led a big group of elite disciples towards the entrance of the Secret Palace. Upon arriving, he shouted out to ask the people around.
“Reporting to Clan Elder, we do not know what happened, but the sound seemed to come from the west side, we have already sent people there to investigate.”
The Law Enforcement Clan Elder was startled for a moment, then suddenly his face changed, his lips muttering nonstop: “Impossible! That’s impossible!”
“Clan Elder, what’s wrong?” The disciple beside him asked in suspicion.
The Law Enforcement Clan Elder suddenly straightened himself and flew straight to the west, while the group behind him immediately rushed to follow him.
Everyone flew together, turning into a black ray of light that covered the skies, quickly landing at the hillside to the west of the Evil Sword Sect. As everyone landed down, they all got surprised as they realised there was a big hole that was exploded outwards.
The entire hillside had crumbled, forming large formations of spiderweb like cracks. It was terrifying, the thick smoke arising from the thick cracks, with layers of terrifying sword intent that had not dissipated.
“What… What happened here?”
One of the disciples stared at the pitch black cave, his face full of astonishment.
The Law Enforcement Clan Elder walked to the cave entrance, poked his head in to look, frowned as though he was thinking about something, when suddenly, he seemed to have figured it out. His eyes exposed a look of disbelief.
Just then, light movements could be heard from inside the cave. Looking inside, it was two Evil Realm people’s heads that poked out, they were the ones guarding the entrance to the tomb.
“Chen Mao, what are you doing here? Aren’t you guarding the entrance? Why did you run here?” An Evil Realm person regained his senses and called out to the person who ran out.
After hearing that, his face became extremely ugly, he anxiously kneeled down, banging his forehead to the ground: “Reporting to Elites, disciple here truly was guarding the entrance, but when disciple was guarding, there was a weird loud explosion sound, so disciple brought his junior apprentice brother here to take a look, but in that moment, another explosion occurred! We were not in time, and this place suddenly had a huge hole broken through!”
“Huge hole broken through? Who… Who did it?” The Evil Realm person shouted.
The evil person called Chen Mao was quiet for a moment, then said softly: “When disciple brought my apprentice brother to the first location of explosion, we realised that there was a facade door square that had already been broken through, Su Yun was not there… So, this hole, most likely… Was made by Su Yun…”
A few Evil Realm people shouted out in anger at the same time.
“Su Yun is only at the first stage of the Spirit Soul Realm! These tomb walls requires at least an expert of the Spirit Star Realm in order to break through them. How can Su Yun, with his capabilities do that! You must be lying to me! Men, drag him out and lock him up!!”
The Evil Realm person shouted in anger.
Hearing that, Chen Mao’s entire body started to tremble.
“Don’t be rash to make such judgements!”
Just then, the Law Enforcement Clan Elder bellowed.
Everyone stopped moving and looked at him.
They watched as the Law Enforcement Clan Elder’s expression turned ugly. He walked towards the cave side, extended out his hand, touching the wall that had disintegrated.
“This Qi…. Contains a very strong Evil Sword Energy… It seems to be our Evil Sword Technique, but much more savage than our Evil Sword Technique… If what Chen Mao said is true, then I am afraid the one who broke through the stone wall was Su Yun, and at the moment, he should have already escaped Evil Sword Sect!”
“But he… Where did he obtain such a strong destructive force? Isn’t he just a first stage Spirit Soul Cultivator?” The Evil Realm person asked in confusion.
“First stage Spirit Soul Cultivator? That’s where you’re mistake. Cultivation level is just a term, it is unable to represent destructive force, as long as your destructive force reaches a standard, so what if you are a first stage Spirit Soul Cultivator? And Su Yun has the support of strong treasures, so it is completely possible that he broke through these stone walls!”
The Law Enforcement Clan Elder shook his head and said indifferently: “The fault is mine for letting Su Yun escape! If I had made my move earlier, the wall of the tomb would have already been broken, it was just that I was too worried over the responsibilities of the sect, and did not take action, giving Su Yun the chance, and allowed him to escape! But all of you, don’t worry, Su Yun is unable to escape! Now, the Evil Sword Sect will give the highest order, send out the Evil Sword Teams, using all our power, we will capture Su Yun!! Regardless if he have escaped to the ends of the earth, we must still catch him!”
“Yes, Clan elder!”
Inside the dark green palace, Spirit Demon Qi surged, humming roars continued to resonate. On top of a red thick and solid pillar, countless demon dragons continued to spiral.
Inside the palace, a woman dressed in green cotton walked down the stairs. On the stairs, countless bones laid bare, it was a terrifying scene, but what was even more scary was that the lady’s white hands was holding onto a pure white human skull. Part of the skull was already flattened, Spirit Demon fire floating above the head, giving off a strange feel.
Below, a sturdy and thick bodied Spirit Demon man with dense Qi knelt down.
The Spirit Demon’s head was plastered to the ground, his entire body shivering, the tyrannical Qi on his body scattered away.
The lady held onto the skull and walked over, and stood in front of him.
“That means, you did not find him?”
The gentle and clear voice seemed extremely calm, as though she was talking to a stranger.
But even so, the Qi in the air was becoming colder and colder, causing the Spirit Demon man to shiver even more excessively.
“Your highness, this subordinate brought men along and barged into the Evil Realm, but… But the Evil Realm is so big, and this subordinate does not have any leads… How can I find that person? Maybe… Maybe he was already eaten by the Evil Realm’s people, since he is only human, he cannot possibly survive inside there…”
Before he could finish speaking, a slender jade like finger pressed onto his skull ruthlessly, his head still plastered on the ground, he could not raise his head or even speak.
“That man dared to escape under my eyes, how can I let him go? If he is alive, I want to see him. If he is dead, I want to see the body, furthermore, that fox is still concerned about him, if I do not account to her, she will not help us, and this will not help us to snatch Sky Martial Continent’s resources! Currently we are at the end of the road, and only by gaining all the help we can get can we rise again! If you cannot do things for me, what is the point of keeping you?” The gentle voice quickly became filled with killing intent.
“Your subordinate… Your subordinate…. Will definitely not… Not let your highness be disappointed again…” The Spirit Demon man said with much difficulty.
The lady removed her finger turned and walked up the hall.
She threw away the human skull in her hand, her voice returning back to normal.
“Go down, continue to look in the Evil Realm, and also send people to the south side of Sky Martial Continent to take a look, I heard the latest session of the Mountain River List is about to open, maybe we can find some interesting people or things there, and if there is a chance, maybe we can get one or two that can aid us in our cause.”
“Yes, your highness.”
Hearing that, the Spirit Demon man lowered his head and left.
The palace was once again quiet.
The woman sat down on a bone jade seat, her beautiful bewitching pupils continued to sparkle, thinking of something.
Just then, light and gentle footsteps could be heard outside the palace, after that, the palace door was pushed open slightly, and a small petite figure walked in.
The woman raised her green pupils and looked at the figure that was the size of a girl with a fox tail.
“You guys are quite powerful, to be able to create such a place in Sky Martial Continent, not too shabby, not too shabby…” The girl’s fox eyes looked around, her face holding up a wide smile.
“Is there anything you need?”
“I heard your men from the Evil Realm is back.”
“We did not find any traces of that man…”
“Heh, who cares, now the important part is not that, we better discuss about Immortal Sword Sect. Their situation is not that good now, Great Clan Elder Shen Hong is dead, the fourth Clan Elder Feng Jian is heavily injured and is currently recuperating, and there are news that Long Xian Li is spending all her time in her training chambers, but not training, and not caring about anything of the sect, just like a lost soul, the sect leader is in closed door cultivation Now in the sect, only the second Clan Elder Tang Tian is helping the sect leader manage the matters, and their current power is very weak, so it would be the best opportunity, are we… Still not taking action?”
Hu Qian Mei laughed.
She was not worried about Su Yun’s safety, it had already been two years, and she realised that her talent did not disappear, but was actually growing. This miraculous truth astonished her time and time again, but it also proved that Su Yun was safe. But in truth she was always suspicious about Su Yun’s talents. Because since the last time at the Mutual Destruction of Five Elements Grounds, where her body was taken by him, she had already felt that her talent had grown stronger to an unimaginable state, higher by five times that of normal people, so she did not know how his talent was.
But after all these time, she also realised that her talent was gradually becoming gloomy… And when she trained in mystical techniques that were more yin, it was much easier.
Why was it so?
Forget it, as long as he is safe, that is good! Hu Qian Mei thought, and her mind relaxed. If Su Yun got into trouble, then she would not be well off either, the both of them were connected by bodies.
Hu Qian Mei’s words did not arouse much interest for the greenish lady, as she stared at Hu Qian Mei with her demonic eyes, and only opened her mouth after a while: “I need to let my people confirm the information you have given me about the Immortal Sword Sect, so we will not take action yet. We need to formulate a plan!”
“So you are still not taking action?” Hu Qian Mei was obviously slightly unhappy: “You don’t believe me? Humph, if we don’t take action now, then when will we? When Feng Jian fully recovers? When Immortal Sword Sect’s Sect Leader comes out of closed door cultivation? Until that bitch Long Xian Li comes to senses?? If it is so, do you know how difficult it would be to take action against Immortal Sword Sect?”
“Qian Mei, don’t be so anxious, it is not that I don’t trust you, but I am truly unable to do anything now. After what happened at Blossom Heart Valley, Sky Martial Continent’s various sects have all gathered together, and are investigating the continent thoroughly to search for the location of any Demons. Now there are many experts going around outside. If we make our move, people will notice us, and don’t even talk about taking action against Immortal Sword Sect, we ourselves might perish!”
Hu Qian Mei’s hands hugged her voluptuous chest that was bulging out of her clothes, swaying her snow white tail and laughed: “Your Spirit Demon Dao people only have this much capability? If that is so, why am I even collaborating with you all?”
“Don’t be anxious.”
The lady was not angry at Hu Qian Mei, she gazed lightly at the big land filled with bones, and said indifferently: “We are waiting for the chance.”
“Chance? What chance?”
“The chance that we are creating!” The lady’s voice was suddenly filled with a strange charm, and said: “The Heavenly Crystal, Sprite’s Shadow and Monarch Occult Force are all out of this world, Su Yun had used these three objects to defeat many experts, and shook the entire region, and now, people of the Sky Martial Continent are all desperately desiring treasures, the desire growing to the point of an unprecedented situation, actually defeating Immortal Sword Sect is easy, we only need one object… And that will suffice.”
“One object that will suffice?” Hu Qian Mei was startled, then she realised something: “What you mean is…”
“Correct, exactly how the war at Blossom Heart Valley came about.” The lady said.
Hu Qian Mei rolled her big eyes many times.
