Sovereign King (VIII)
Promptly, the two were led to the mansion.
The mansion was enormous and was super grand. It was covered in evil arrays and seals. At the northern side of the mansion was where all the Sovereign King’s dual cultivation companions stayed. Rumours said that most of them were raped by the Sovereign King. They were merely tools to help the Sovereign King to cultivate. There was nothing special about their looks and were ugly. But to be able to cultivate with such a strong being like the Sovereign King, they have gained quite a fair bit of benefits. As such, most of them would follow the Sovereign King faithfully.
On the eastern side was the Sovereign King’s treasure storage. It was used to store all of the treasures that the Sovereign King had stolen from the Evil King City. And on the western side was the army training grounds. It was filled with countless evil people who served the Sovereign King. They cultivated there and enjoyed the benefits that the Sovereign King bestowed to them but when it was time and they had to fight for the Sovereign King, they had to. Even if they had to die.
Su Yun and Chen Yi Yun were brought to the basement prison by the evil people.
The prison was rectangular in shape. It was gloomy and wet and it was protected and shielded by 49 evil arrays formed in a square of seven by seven. It was also guarded by several evil people.
When the two of them were brought into the prison, a series of wails that sounded like ghosts and wolves came out.
Su Yun looked over. At the two sides of this narrow prison, were cubicles that were strengthened by arrays. Within the cubicles were innumerous evil people.
These evil people tore at the poles of the cubicles and shook uncontrollably. Shrilling screams came from their mouths.
“Set me free! I don’t want to be a weapon spirit. Let me go!”
The screamings were incessant and continuous.
A rotting stench filled the atmosphere. On the floor, there were countless rotting flesh and evil blood. It was like a living hell.
Chen Yi Yun looked pale. Obviously, she was frightened by this scene.
Anyway, the Evil Sword Sect was considered one of the safest and most peaceful place in the Evil Realm. Why would Chen Yi Yun ever see such a scene?
The evil people behind hurried Su Yun and Chen Yi Yun as they shouted annoyingly,
The two remained silent as they advanced forward.
“Place them in the cubicles at the end. One room each. These two are highly talented spiritual weapons. Don’t mix them with other evil people just in case something happens. We cannot allow any room for mistake. Understand?”
The evil person in charge of these two people shouted.
The head of the prison was in a difficult position now. He hesitated before he spoke: “Mister, the Sovereign King had been capturing evil people from all over the place recently. This prison is already full and there’s only one cubicle left. It might not be enough to place them each in one cubicle.”
“In that case” The head of the prison thought and continued: “Let the female one be alone in the cubicle. Just throw this man in either one of these cubicles randomly. This man does not look kind and must be up to no good. If he stays with this lady, he might rape her and make her his dual cultivation companion!”
Fuck! Do I look so low down?
Su Yun wanted to scold.
But he was in their territory and so he could only bear it in.
“Yes, master!” The head of the prison giggled and waved his hand.
Instantly, Chen Yi Yun was brought to the end of the cubicle which was considered fairly clean while Su Yun was thrown into a cubicle, squeezed with tons of evil people.
“Alright, I’ll report this to the Sovereign King. The ingredients are all ready. I believe the cultivation of the weapon ceremony will begin soon.”
After which, he left.
The head of the prison peeped at the man as he left. Then, he walked over to a table and continued drinking his evil wine.
Once Su Yun was in the cubicle, he was surrounded by Evil Qi right away. These bunch of people did not remove his weapons. They were not afraid of him running away. It was useless when faced with such strong techniques. Moreover, this cubicle was stronger than anything. Even if they had a weapon, it was not enough to break it down
Su Yun walked into the cubicle and stood at the door, staring at the evil people inside.
This cubicle was housing ten over evil people. Each of them were fierce and sly looking.
There was not a single inch of hope in their eyes. What was left in their eyes were murder and heartlessness. From their point of view, they were going to be used as spiritual weapon. Why not enjoy more before they die as they soak in fresh blood!
There were already a dozens of corpses lying on the ground. They probably lost their lives while staying in this cubicle.
Seemed like this bunch of evil people were together or else, such things would not happen.
“I won’t allow any killing! Or else, you’ll suffer too!”
The head of the prison shouted to the cubicle Su Yun was entering before he returned back to drinking his wine.
Su Yun lifted his head and revealed a smile underneath his cape. He took down the Death Sword and stabbed it down beside him. Then, he said softly: “Bow down to me and I shan’t kill any of you.”
“Bow down to you? Tsk! You’re an ant! I haven’t been eating for a long time! Quick, let me have a taste of fresh blood!”
One of the evil person could no longer hold on as he pounced onto Su Yun.
But in the next second, there was a clank and a beam of black radiance shone through. It sliced off the evil person’s head instantly. The evil person fell from mid air and onto the floor. Spitting out a mouthful of blood before his head rolled over.
His methods were vicious and fierce.
All of the evil people were stunned.
When the head of the prison noticed, he was infuriated. He ran over hurriedly and stood in front of the cubicle. Instigating his Evil Spirit Qi, and activated one of the arrays of this cubicle. Suddenly, the entire cubicle was transmitting an odd current. All of the evil people winced as though they were in such great pain.
“Hehe! Bet you’re suffering now eh?”
The head of the prison smiled proudly.
But, Su Yun had no reaction at all. Instead, he stood right in front of him in one piece.
The head of the prison was shocked. Instantly, he knew this man was not ordinary.
But he was not annoyed either. Looking at Su Yun with a composed face, he mocked: “Don’t be too proud yet! After a few days, you’d become a spiritual weapon! I’ll let you have it this time round!”
“Oh yes! Should anyone kill again, I shall report to the criminal law captain and have him skin all of you alive! I’ll let you experience unbearable pain. If you don’t listen to me, you can try it!”
After that, he turned and continued drinking.
Su Yun scanned around. He did not care. He looked at those evil people who were wincing on the floor and asked blandly: “Will you still not bow down to me?”
“What kind of circumstances is this and you’re still talking about bowing down to you? How many days can you still live?”
One of the evil person stood up and shouted to Su Yun.
“If you’re all willing to serve me as your master, I might be able to save you!”
Su Yun kept the Death Sword in his Sword Sheath and smiled as he spoke.
“Save us? How are you going to do that?”
“Give me all of your strength!”
“You’re going to devour us?” One of the evil person asked in fear.
“If you don’t do what I say, I’ll devour you!”
Su Yun stated coldly.
With that, every single evil person shut their mouths.
Facing such a strong being, who would dare to rebel against Su Yun? Hastily, they nodded.
Su Yun noted and placed onto the ‘Heavenly Crystal’ on his chest. Then, he started feeding it with Evil Spirit Force.
When he fought with the Three Link almighty being, he activated the Heavenly Crystal and exhausted all of the energy in it. Although he had recovered slightly on his way here, the timing was too short. It was obviously not enough to recover. The strength of Heavenly Crystal was not full and so he could not instigate it.
Su Yun then started filling up the Heavenly Crystal with his own energy, allowing it to restore to merely ⅓. Adding on this energy, he still needed ⅔ of energy to fill the Heavenly Crystal completely.
“Your energies, bring it over.”
Su Yun ordered.
The evil people swallowed their salivas and hesitated. Then, they garnered their courage and reached out to the site where Su Yun’s hands were. Slowly, the Evil Spirit Qi started flowing into his body.
Although the evil people were merely Spirit Core Cultivators, all of their Evil Spirit Qi were fully nourished. Promptly, Su Yun’s body was filled with Qi.
“It’s still not enough! I need more! Continue! Continue!”
Su Yun tried his best to obtain strength from the evil people as he shouted softly.
The evil people broke into a cold sweat as their bodies grew weak. They were frail now but they had to listen to him. No one dared to slow down one bit.
Finally, most of the evil people could no longer hold it. They fell to the ground. As for Su Yun, he was back to his optimal state.
The head of the prison sensed something fishy and was enraged as he bellowed and ran over.
The evil people who caught Su Yun dashed into the prison.
Looking at those weak and frail evil people on the ground, that man was infuriated.
“Are you absorbing their powers? Damn it! Place him in that cubicle with that woman!” The evil person roared.
“This, aren’t you afraid he might rape the girl and make her his companion?”
“What are you afraid of? The woman has high cultivation. Why are you afraid of him? Tsk, let him get what he wants and he’ll suffer later.”
The head of the prison said as the two evil people opened the prison door and brought Su Yun out. They were just about to send him into the cubicle with Chen Yi Yun.
Just then, the evil person shouted.
“Mister, what’s wrong?”
“His two swords!”
The evil person muttered: “This man doesn’t look simple. His swords must not be ordinary. Bring it over!”
The head of the prison nodded and ran over.
“Oh? You want these two swords?”
Su Yun looked up and exposed a grin below his cape.
“Cut the nonsense! Bring it over!”
Su Yun did not refuse them. On the contrary, he smiled and handed the Death Sword and Immortal Mystical Scarlet Blood Sword over.
The head of the prison did not mind at all and reached out his hands but just as he came in contact with the two swords, a gust of energy burst forth from the Death Sword. The head of the prison trembled. He almost fell to the ground. When he looked at the two swords again, he expressed utmost fear and shock.
“No, nothing. These two swords just seemed a little odd.”
“Ah, what’s odd about them. They’re all treasures of the Sovereign King! Place them in the treasure store!” The evil person said in discontentment.
The head of the prison answered.
The evil person walked over.
Su Yun who was in Chen Yi Yun’s cubicle watched as they left. Then, he raised his hand and placed it on the Heavenly Crystal on his chest and started filling it again with all the evil strength he had obtained.
“I’m left with 40%, I believe it’s almost time.”
