Evil Sword Sovereign King (XVI)
“We respectfully greet Senior Master Guardians!”
Practically everyone knelt down and shouted out loud. Of course, this excluded Su Yun who was holding Mu Yi captive.
Su Yun’s eyes darkened as he looked at the three almighty beings.
They were two males and one female, one of the man and the woman looked old, around 60 years of age, they were dressed in grey gowns, without any sense of Qi from their bodies. They were oddly mysterious, while the other man was actually young with tender skin, even his eyes seemed to have the sincerity of a youth.
Everyone knew that the old man and woman were named Yuwen Xiao Lin and Gu Qing Wu. The Young Guardian Master was Ye Liao.
“There are enemies here, everyone, there is no need for the courtesy.”
Ye Liao waved his hand and spoke with an indifferent expression.
“Yes, Senior Master Guardian!”
Everyone stood up.
Just then, two cultivators rushed out of the ground and knelt down infront of the Guardian, they were weeping, their faces were of sorrow as they screamed: “Senior Master Guardian, we beg you to seek justice for our family’s Young Master!!”
“Evil Realm being Su Yun hurt our family Young Master! We beg Masters to seek justice!”
Ye Liao seemed to not understand, but Yu Wen Xiao Lin and Gu Qing Wu who had previously sensed the disturbance, immediately spoke out.
Hearing that, Ye Liao’s eyes released a gold light, and looked at Su Yun. His eyes flickered with a strange luster, and in the next moment he revealed a surprised expression.
“This cultivator’s body truly has Evil Spirit Essence, he is definitely an Evil Realm person.”
“The Evil Realm is our Sky Martial Continent enemy, My family’s Young master is not wrong to seek everyone to subdue the evil, and only had the safety of Sky Martial Continent’s countless of lives in mind when he said those words. My family’s Young Master was being righteous, yet was resented by these nasty people! Master, please seek justice for my family’s young master!”
Just then, an old man walked out of the group, and spoke respectfully towards the Guardian Masters.
He was the old man that had followed Lin Tian Yin all the way.
Just that, his words did not receive any sympathy from the people. Lin Tian Yin had previously challenged many of them, and made them sign the agreements with many of them losing to him. According to the agreement, they had to do something for him unconditionally, causing them to be unhappy. Because of that, no one was willing to him help when he was in trouble.
“You may speak like that, but coming back to the matter, Su Yun saved our lives!”
Right at that moment, the old lady amongst the four officials spoke out.
“We did not know that participant Wu Yun was an Evil Realm being, just that, in the time of need, he did not cower back and protect himself, and did not try to come to an agreement with the Spirit Demon Dao, but persevered without giving way to resist the Spirit Demon Dao, and saved all of our lives. Although according to the Sky Martial Continent rules, we must exterminate Evil Realm beings, but this old one is unable to comply to that rule today, to ask this old one to personally kill my benefactor, that is impossible.” The old lady spoke earnestly, her words were resolute.
It seemed that whoever wanted to refute her words would mean that they were going against her.
“I agree!” Another official spoke up.
“And I too.” The official with last name Wang also spoke out.
Revealing their stand in this, Ye Liao nodded his head, and did not even seem angered.
“Let us first bring our cultivator friend to receive treatment.” He pointed at Lin Tian Yin, and then looked towards Su Yun, after thinking for a long time, he started to speak: “Regarding this cultivator friend as an Evil Realm being, we can speak of it after we defeat our enemies. Everyone retreat first, we need to handle things against the greater enemy. After that, we will handle our matters by ourselves, do not lose focus, and forget about the enemy right in front of us.”
“Master, Princess Mu Yi is already our captive, we have already won, what do we have to fear against them?”
One person spoke up.
“Yes, Master, we can just take Mu Yi, and get the army of Spirit Demon beings to surrender.”
“Heh, even without Mu Yi, with our Senior Guardian Masters here, what do we have to fear against these Spirit Demon beasts?”
The restless chatterings started again.
Be that as it may, Su Yun did not dare have any neglect anymore.
He thought for a moment, then spoke up.
“In the end, I, Su Yun am but just one man. The reason for me being here today, is for nothing else but to find Qing’er. Now that Qing’er is back with me, I Su Yun have no regrets. With regards to the Spirit Demons and Demonic beings, I do not have any interest. I can hand over Princess Mu Yi to all of you, but I hope, great seniors, that you will not make things difficult for this lowly one. Although I, Su Yun has both Evil Spirit essence and Spirit Essence in my body, I am not an Evil Realm being, and will not do anything to harm Sky Martial Continent. I will immediately leave now, and not dally any further.”
He turned and left.
“Cultivator Su Yun, do not worry. You have saved these people, and have done a great favor to my Qin Creek. Although Qin Creek detests the Demons, but we are not inflexible with our thoughts and are pragmatic, we will never repay kindness with harm. If you are uneasy about us, you can go now. We can handle the matters here!”
Ye Liao cupped his fist, and then spoke to Yuwen Xiao Lin behind him: “Junior Brother Yuwen, Cultivator Su Yun has many valuable treasures on him, and he is also gravely injured, there would definitely be people wanting to do harm to him once he leaves Qin Creek, send them on their way and help them leave.”
“Yes, Senior brother!”
Yuwen Xiao Lin nodded.
Seeing that, Su Yun heaved a sigh of relief: ‘It seems like the Qin Creek people were not as traitorous and evil as I thought.’
Thinking about it, with their cultivation, they wouldn’t be so inflexible and narrow minded. Although my treasures are good, it is not worth it for them to lose their reputation and bear the consequences of trying to seize them away.
Thinking about that, Su Yun was not worried any longer. He tightly held onto Mu Yi’s hand, and spoke softly: “So what now? My honorable Princess Mu Yi, do you have anything else to say?”
Mu Yi did not say anything.
Su Yun then let go of his hand, and pushed Mu Yi to the Three Guardian Masters, and then rushed to Qing’er: “Let’s go Qing’er.”
“Yes, Young master!” Qing’er whose complexion was pale white nodded, and immediately followed behind him.
But, before the two of them could leave the place, the sky suddenly changed.
The blue dome suddenly released a bizarre Qi mist. This Qi mist was a moss green color, it was weirdly pungent, covering up the entire sky, turning the light auras green.
A burst of unclean and unknown intent surged and passed into everyone’s mind, causing them to lose consciousness. It was extremely hard to defend against, and cultivators with lower cultivation were already losing their minds, while those who were not affected too greatly, were perspiring in cold sweat, no one dared to relax themselves.
“Spirit Demon Qi!”
Suddenly, the old lady official screamed.
“All of you, activate your Profound Spirit Force and protect your state of mind, do not allow the Spirit Demon Qi to corrode your mind. If not you will be caught in the illusion and lose your rationality!”
Hearing that, everyone instigated their Profound Spirit Qi.
The faces of the three senior guardian masters were ugly, as they faced the incoming large Spirit Demon army.
All of the Spirit Demon beings started to emit Spirit Demon Qi that automatically congealed and started to mixed together, and at the end, it transformed into a gigantic jade green spirit door that floated in the sky.
Instantly, the jade door opened, and out poured tens of thousands of Spirit Demon beings, all of them howling and wailing, their screeches sounded out in all directions. Qin creek immediately transformed into purgatory, the sinister and terrifying demons all wreaking havoc everywhere.
Everyone started to panic, all of them started to retreat as they witnessed the bizarre scene.
The expressions of the officials were still effable, but when they saw the Spirit Demons. Their faces all became extremely pale. The old lady wailed: “Does Heavens truly want Qin Creek dead?”
“Why did he come here? Isn’t he worried at all?”
Ye Liao’s face became ugly, as his eyes became gloomier while staring at the jade door.
When Yuwen Xiao Lin saw the jade door, he immediately turned and walked back to Ye Liao. His actions indicated that he did not plan to send Su Yun out of Qin Creek anymore.
Without Yu Wen Xiao Lin’s protection, Su Yun did not dare to leave, the Heavenly Crystal could not sustain him any longer, and Qing’er was injured. If they left Qin creek like that, most probably, they would be killed shortly after leaving.
Just that, why would fourth stage Spirit Star cultivators be afraid? Did an almighty being much stronger than them arrive?
Su Yun did not understand.
Everyone were perspiring profusely.
A low pitched sound rumbled out, followed with the Spirit Demon Qi in the sky dissipating frantically, rendering the entire sky to look like the Spirit Demon Realm.
The army of Spirit Demons suddenly knelt down, and shouted loudly towards the jade door: “We greet the Spirit Demon Emperor, our Immortal Emperor with everlasting life, who will pass into eternity, our Supreme Emperor under the Heavens!”
“Our Immortal Emperor with everlasting life, who will pass into eternity, our Supreme Emperor under the Heavens!”
The shouts became a huge wave, booming through the mountains and shaking the seas with overflowing power.
It was rhythmic.
Su Yun was startled, he went to Mu Yi and asked: “Did you call for reinforcements?”
“No, it was your fault!”
Mu Yi spoke indifferently: “Su Yun, I have already gave you many chances, but you did not know how to cherish them. Now that he is here, it is too late. Even if I wanted to let you go, he will never do it!”
“Hey, woman, you truly think you’re something eh! You think the backup you’ve called can handle the three senior Guardian Masters?”
“Guardian masters?” Mu Yi sneered: “Look at their faces before you speak!”
Su Yun squinted his eyes. He turned and looked over, to see the ugly faces of the three Guardian Masters. All of them had strange worried looks, as though they were meeting a great enemy.
Su Yun became alarmed and asked softly: “Who did you call?”
Mu Yi shook her head: “I did not call for him, and the person that had arrived is not someone I can call for. He is the emperor of the entire Spirit Demon Dao, and also my father! Su Yun, you forced my father’s man to break his own arms, and even hold his daughter captive, how can he let you go? Father possesses remarkable abilities, he knew about what had transpired very well, all of your actions had deeply humiliated him, he will definitely not let you leave Qin Creek alive, so just obediently sit still and wait for your death!”
Su Yun’s face immediately turned white. But he did not hesitate, and instantly extended his hand, wanting to hold Mu Yi captive again.
But in that instant, a powerful and mighty low voice sounded out from the green door!
“Ant! Don’t you dare!”
When the voice came out, Su Yun’s arm immediately froze.
It was like an invisible energy had wrapped around his limbs, and he was unable to move any further.
“Don’t act without thinking!”
Ye Liao shouted.
Rumble rumble rumble.
Just then, the green door in the sky opened, and a humongous Spirit Demon figure shot out, bringing along thousands of Spirit Demons.
In the center, stood a middle aged man dressed in jade gowns, he rode on a black shadow, flying out of the jade door and floated in the sky. He glanced at the entire place with disdain in his eyes, and then at the mass of people beneath him.
At that moment, the officials, the guardian masters, the Spirit Star existences, all lost color in their faces, no one was able to contend with the being above them, no one was able to break through his might!
He was the unmatched and unrivaled existence right there and then, everyone could only look up to him, with either the devout respect and cautiousness that made them swear their allegiance to him, or the despair in their hearts knowing that they were at death’s door!
This being, was a true Emperor Grade existence.
