The Four Heavenly Kings
“Who is it?”
Bird King shouted anxiously, his voice sounding out to the surrounding.
A prominent yet secretive voice sounded out from outside the broken barrier.
Bird King glanced over, only to see a man fully covered by black cloak, with a Sword Sheath and a blood red sword on his back, walking over from the mountain.
He raised his head, and under the cloak was a pale and dark face. Inside the haze, Bird King could vaguely make out the sinister and horrific eyes, and for some reason, when Bird King looked at the eyes, his bones would involuntarily shudder with a cold aura.
Such evil intent!!
Bird King’s face was leaking with perspiration, as he thought.
Hu Qian Mei was startled as she turned her head to look behind her.
She watched as the man walked over, unable to see how he looked like, just that he stood quietly in front of her, showing her his broad back.
“Miss, is he someone who came to save us?”
Ying Ying asked in a trembling voice.
“I do not know.”
Hu Qian Mei replied softly: “I cannot see his face clearly. I do not know who he is, so we better be careful.”
“Then why did he say he was your man?”
“One sided love!” Hu Qian Mei snorted, but a suspicion grew in her head.
Could it be him?
How could it be that he had been missing so long, although he was alive, but how could he appear here? Furthermore, his cultivation was weak, how could he be here to save her? Was he trying to die?
Bird King maintained his composure, and took a deep breath in and asked: “I do not care who you are, but this is the territory of Ming Ying Sect, and she is a person of Ming Ying Sect! I warn you, you have better scram, if not, you will face the wrath of the entire Ming Ying Sect!”
“Great!” The man happily nodded his head: “Then I want to face the wrath of your Ming Ying Sect!”
With that, he extended his right hand, and in an instant.
The pitch black sword suddenly flew up directly, and shot towards Bird King.
Where could Bird King seen such a terrifying yet strange style? He anxiously retreated, and exclaimed: “You’re from Immortal Sword Sect??”
But, the man did not answer, controlling the pitch black sword flying in a berserk, slashing everywhere, it seemed as though the sword was alive, revolving and spinning around Bird King, quickly moving without any fixed pattern, in a moment, it had produced unlimited sword images, a mysterious Qi much sharper than the Swift Wind Spirit Qi erupted from the sword blade, and in that slash, Bird King’s entire body was covered in sword wounds, blood gushing out everywhere. It was terrifying.
Bird King immediately took out his treasure, but the feathers on his body suddenly extended out, shooting everywhere. However, the weak and fragile feathers were no match for the sword images, and were all sliced to dust.
Bird King’s life was in peril!
Suddenly, the sword Qi turned sluggish, and the sword blade slashed horizontally.
Bird King’s expression was wild, he could not follow up with the swords’ rhythm.
A slice and his arm was cut off, his entire body was chopped all over, blood spurting everywhere, it was a miserable sight.
He released extremely mournful screams that could cause people’s hair to stand.
The black sword flew back. The man extended out his hand and grabbed it, and when he had the sword held tightly, he swung the sword blade to tilt down, then rushed towards Bird King who was wailing in pain on the ground.
His killing intent soared, seeing his stance, it seemed that he planned to exterminate and instantly destroy Bird King!
So firm and decisive!
Hu Qian Mei was stunned.
Who exactly was he, was he not afraid of offending the Ming Ying Sect?
My man? When did I have such a man? When did I have a man like that?
Hu Qian Mei suddenly felt her heart go numb, her mind in a mess.
“Don’t kill me!! If you kill me, you will definitely suffer from the barrage of the Ming Ying Sect who will seek revenge, do not kill me!!”
Bird King’s usable hand grabbed onto the arm that was injured, he struggled away from the man, his lips stuttering and his voice trembling.
“Ming Ying Sect?”
The man leaned his head forward, stooping down and looked at Bird King, his pale face exposing a sinister smile: “I am so afraid!”
When he said that, a slight chill covered Bird King, and the demonic sword came slashing down!
“Hold your hand!!”
At that moment of life and death, a tyrannical voice bellowed out, followed by a powerful ray of light that flew towards them.
The man saw that it was dangerous, and immediately used his sword to block.
The strong ray of light came from multiple strong people, so how was one person able to block? Immediately he was pushed back by the power.
Seeing that, Bird King was extremely happy, he anxiously turned to look behind him, only to see a big group of Ming Ying Sect’s people.
The leading three men were the other three Heavenly Kings of Ming Ying Sect. Brave Lion King, Giant Whale King and Poisonous Centipede King.
Brave Lion King was born with the back of a tiger and waist of a bear, he had a tough and stocky build. His beard was very messy, and had an imposing aura, while Giant Whale King also had a huge figure, but was not as muscular as Brave Lion King. He was more fat, and looked like a round ball. Poisonous Centipede was a woman, she was born to be rather charming, but as she grew older, her remaining charm was not much.
The three of them rushed forward and immediately surrounded Bird King, while the remaining of the Ming Ying Sect disciples rushed to surround Hu Qian Mei, all of them brandishing out their weapons, pointed towards Hu Qian Mei and the black cloaked man.
“Are you a rescue soldier sent by Hu Qian Mei?”
Brave Lion King with his messy beard asked in a hoarse voice.
“You actually dare to enter our Ming Ying Sect’s territory and mess around, your guts is really big!”
“Protector Hu, I advise you to quickly give up, and follow us back, if not if the matter blows big, then it will not be good!” Poisonous Centipede King laughed at Hu Qian Mei.
“And you! Kneel down obediently, if not, do not blame us for being ruthless, and kill you!”
Brave Lion King, with his thunderous temper shouted out.
Two against the group, in terms of numbers, it was obvious who had the advantage.
But, that man was not afraid.
The black cloaked man who was actually Su Yun just frowned, his voice went into a higher pitch, raised his head and looked at them: “Then you guys can try, and see if you have the ability to kill me!”
“You better not be arrogant!”
Brave Lion King was enraged, he bellowed out, then instantly took out his dual hammers, and flew forward towards Su Yun, smashing at his head.
In the next moment, a gigantic golden lion image seemed to superimpose on him, giving him multiple folds of mysterious power, the pressure becoming a huge wave as it clashed down onto Su Yun.
However, he did not move an inch, as he quietly waited for Brave Lion King’s attack to hit him.
He waited for the big hammers to get close to him, then suddenly raised his head, a grey light shot out from his eyes, causing Brave Lion King’s surface layer to immediately become stone, his movements instantly becoming more rigid.
“Not good!” Brave Lion King’s heart panicked, he immediately changed to defense, seeing that the black sword had thrust forward at his heart like a poisonous snake, he knew the man’s hands was ruthless and cunning.
He anxiously used his hammers to throw off the sword, then dodged, hiding from the black sword.
But, in the next second, another ray of cold light came.
Brave Lion King was stunned, he did not even react, and his shoulder was struck by the cold light attack!
The sword slashed onto his shoulder, entering 3 inches deep into his body causing blood to spurt out.
They then saw the man fly up, rushing towards Brave Lion King’s chest and ferociously kicking at him, causing him to fly out instantly, crashing into the ground.
In the time that it took for a spark to ignite, Brave Lion King was defeated! Everyone all sucked in cold air, their hearts numb.
Who was he? What cultivation did he had? Furthermore, was he an expert in dual swords?
“He is not easy to handle!”
Poisonous Centipede King’s heart sunk, and said softly.
“Of course he isn’t easy, if not why will I be like this.” Bird King replied with his white lips.
“Is he that fierce? But don’t afraid everyone, this is Ming Ying Sect’s territory, he is just but one man, we all can go together, and take him down!” Giant Whale King said naively.
“Go together?” Poisonous Centipede King shook her head: “Then we will cause Hu Qian Mei to escape, and lose our purpose. If this matter blows big, although we can get her back, but I am afraid we too will be held accountable, so we have best think of ways to resolve it in a better way.”
“Then what do you plan to do?” Giant Whale King asked.
“Let’s speak reasonably with him.”
“Speak reason? Will he listen?”
“Let me try.”
Poisonous Centipede King took a deep breath, walked forward and shouted towards Su Yun.
“This expert, do you know where you are?”
“I know, but even if I did not, what I want to do, is to bring her away!” Su Yun pointed at Hu Qian Mei.
“You cannot bring her away!”
He then saw as Poisonous Centipede King took out an inch long cylinder from her storage ring, and said to Su Yun: “If you were a Spirit Star Cultivator, and you want to go? That is possible, we will definitely not stop you, since we do not have the strength to. But if you are not, then that is not possible, as long as I send this signal out! Our School’s sect leader, Protector Liu Xin Dong and other countless almighty beings will definitely rush here in a moment, all of them will be chasing after you, even if you can run now, you will definitely not leave our area! So, you cannot bring her away.”
Hearing that, Su Yun became quiet.
That was true, he came on a whim, and did not have any preparations beforehand. Truthfully, he had come not to bring Hu Qian Mei away, but merely to ask if she really wanted to marry Liu Xin Dong. If she truly liked him, then he did not mind, but if she was not willing, he would bring her away.
Su Yun saw the two of them trying to escape, and therefore made his move, but the situation was not as simple as it looked.
The secret relation between Hu Qian Mei and him was private, and both of them did not hope for anything to happen to either of them.
“She is right.”
Just as Su Yun was thinking, Hu Qian Mei suddenly spoke out.
Su Yun was stunned and turned to look at her.
Hu Qian Mei’s delicate face looked like she was suffering, as she shook her head and laughed weakly: “I originally did not have much hope for this escape, getting to this point already far exceeded my plans, if we were able to escape out of this mountain range, leave the area, then we will be able to escape. But we are already trapped here without any way to leave Liu Xin Dong and his men, so forget it. You should just leave. Do not fight with them for me, otherwise the one to be at a disadvantage will only be you.”
“Is that so?”
Su Yun spoke out, and walked towards Hu Qian Mei.
He crouched down and leaned forward, raised his head, the pale face behind the cloak immediately appeared in Hu Qian Mei’s pupils.
In a split second, Hu Qian Mei was stunned.
“S-Su Yun? Is that you? Is it really you?” She asked in a daze, she did not believe her eyes.
“It’s me.” Su Yun said gently.
After a long while, Hu Qian Mei started to laugh bitterly, a look of complication in her eyes.
“I never thought that, in the end the only one who cared about me, the one willing to stand by my side, will be you, asshole.”
“Ok, you better go! Don’t care about me. I know, maybe you are worried that something happened to me, and would affect your cultivation, but relax, I am only marrying someone, I will definitely not affect you!”
“Then are you willing to marry to Liu Xin Dong?”
“Willing? How am I willing?”
“Then I will bring you away.”
“You can’t do it.” Hu Qian Mei shook her head: “Quickly go, they do not wish to blow the matter, if you continue to stay here, they will lose their patience and ignore everything else. If they blow the matter, i’m afraid you will be in danger.”
“So you do not wish to go?”
“If I can go, why won’t I?”
“Then good, I will come and pick you up in two days.”
Su Yun stood up and said.
Hu Qian Mei looked at him in a daze, she did not know what he was talking about.
She then saw him turn and looked towards Poisonous Centipede King.
“The marriage between the two protectors of Ming Ying Sect is in two days?”
“I will bring people to enjoy the feast.”
Su Yun then kept Death Sword and Engraved Dragon Blade into the Sword Sheath, and turned to leave.
“Enjoy the feast?” Poisonous Centipede King frowned.
“Heh, brat, you overestimate yourself, although we cannot see through your cultivation, but he definitely is not of the Spirit Star realm, would he dare to behave atrociously at the wedding? Seeking death!”
Giant Whale King said disdainfully.
He may have put it that way, but the space between Poisonous Centipede King still had a look of worry on it.
