Evil Sword Sovereign King (XVII)
Mu Yi shouted aloud as she ran over.
Gu Qing Wu acted at the same time.
She stood in her place, but a hand suddenly shot out. Like a vine, it twisted towards Mu Yi, as though it wanted to pull her back.
But in the next second, a greenish jade flicker appeared in the sky.
No one knew why, but they watched as a circle of ripples gradually flowed through the air and struck Gu Qing Wu’s body. Her face instantly turned pale, she shuddered, and the mystical technique she had used instantly stopped. Her entire being was forced back a few steps, she opened her mouth and spat out blood.
The scene shook countless of people.
Gu Qing Wu was a Guardian Master, a fourth stage Spirit Star Realm existence. Before they even saw the opponent make a move, Gu Qing Wu was actually injured severely. What kind of existence could do that?
Seeing that, Su Yun’s heart thumped, as he felt the chill.
If a fourth stage Spirit Star cultivator was unable to withstand his attack, didn’t that mean that his cultivation is at least of the fifth stage of the Spirit Star Realm? Or the sixth stage? Or even the seventh?
Thinking about that, he suddenly felt cold sweat dripping down his back.
A fifth stage Spirit Star Realm existence in Sky Martial Continent was already a peak figure, regardless of where he went, he would definitely be the ruler.
And if he was at the Sixth stage, he definitely held an honorary rank and was a definite expert.
The seventh stage was only a rumored level.
And the eighth stage
That was practically a god.
To have three fourth stage Spirit Star cultivators appearing in Qin Creek was already an eye opener to countless of people. They were definitely shaken to the core, and to have an even stronger expert that was far more powerful than these fourth stage Spirit Star Realm experts, everyone would definitely be mindblown.
The Sky Martial Continent was so huge, with crouching tigers hidden dragons everywhere, but Su Yun did not know who the strongest cultivator was in the Sky Martial Continent. However, thinking about it, they would not be so strong to such an extent either.
“Yi’er, come here!”
The middle aged man in the sky spoke out.
Mu Yi nodded, and started to move.
But in the next second, Ye Liao and Yuwen Xiao Lin made their moves. The two of them flickered and immediately stood in front of Mu Yi, blocking her from moving.
Mu Yi stopped in her tracks and stared at the two of them coldly.
“Miss Mu Yi, can you wait for a moment, you have affected countless of lives here in Qin Creek, so you cannot go back to your father yet!”
Ye Liao cupped his fists at Mu Yi, turned and stared at the middle aged man, and then shouted: “My name is Ye Liao, and I greet Senior Spirit Demon Emperor!”
The middle aged man in the sky asked: “Are you the disciple of Qin Zhong Xian?”
“My Master is Qin Zhong Xian!” Ye Liao replied.
“Humph! Qin Zhong Xian can be considered someone! But his disciple? Ye Liao, for me to even remember your name is already giving you face. Now, immediately send my daughter over, or I will massacre your entire Qin Creek!”
The Spirit Demon Emperor was extremely tyrannical, his voice was like flames, as his words entered the ears of the humans, it felt like their ears were set aflame.
“Senior Spirit Demon Emperor, if you agree to withdraw your troops, your daughter will naturally be sent back into your arms safe and sound!”
Ye Liao spoke out.
Although he was hailed as the God Protector of Qin Creek, at times, he still had to make compromises. Who is the Spirit Demon Emperor? He is in the same generation as Ye Liao’s Master, his cultivation level was through the sky, and no one was capable of contending against him. Under this situation, he could only put down his prestige and call the Spirit Demon being senior.
Seeing their God Protector showing such grace, no one in Qin Creek felt embarrassed, instead, they felt proud being a part of Qin Creek. Because they knew that Ye Liao was doing it for them!
Since he was the protector, he had to forsake everything and protect them.
The moment Ye Liao spoke, Spirit Demon Emperor bellowed with his thunderous voice.
Ye Liao’s face instantly whitened by 30%, his body swayed slightly, he was obviously injured.
“What are you? To dare and haggle with this Emperor? You want to die?”
He spoke out.
Ye Liao was forced to retreat, all the way to his seventh step, he opened his mouth and spat out gold blood.
The blood that circulated in the arteries around the Spirit Essences had strong Profound Spirit Qi accumulated in them, to spit these blood out indicated the severity of injuries.
Every single word, phrase and sentence of the Emperor seemed to hold millions of blades! With just his words, he had injured Ye Liao! How terrifying was that?
“Master Ye Liao!”
Everyone behind were shocked, and rushed to support Ye Liao who was staggering.
Mu Yi glanced coldly at the people, and then headed straight towards the army of Spirit Demons, this time, no one dared to stop her!
Spirit Demon Emperor’s green lit eyes swept past Mu Yi, and then at Pu Yao.
Pu Yao immediately knelt down, kowtowing fiercely, he did not dare raise his head, and shouted: “Your majesty! This slave is here!”
“I allowed you to protect the Princess, why did this happen?”
“This slave… This slave…” Pu Yao was trembling all over, he muttered for so long, but did not know what to say, and could only reply: “This slave was inattentive, and almost let the princess suffer under their hands! This slave deserves a thousand deaths, Your Majesty, punish me!”
“Although you have followed me for so many years, you have disappointed me today! Men, bring Pu Yao to the Phantom Spirit Purgatory, and make him suffer the pain of ten thousand spirits biting and tearing his flesh!”
The Spirit Demon Emperor said without any expressions.
Hearing that, the eyes of countless of the Spirit Demon Dao higher ups twitched, a few of them thought that it was an extremely bad thing, and their faces turned green.
Pu Yao did not dare to refute, and exclaimed out “Thank you, your majesty.” but his body was trembling even more severely.
Very quickly, two Spirit Demon beings walked over and brought out a moss green chain and lock, tying around his neck and bringing him away.
After settling Pu Yao and getting Mu Yi back, the Spirit Demon Emperor did not seem to be finished.
His eyes were stern, he swept across everyone, his voice seemed to come from the highest Heaven.
“Qin Creek humans, how dare you! To actually hold this Emperor’s daughter captive, although she is safe, but this emperor will not let this go! Now! All of you humans better kneel down, and swear your allegiance to me! If not, I will make sure Qin Creek disappear from the face of this world!”
When he said that, it instantly brought upon an uproar.
“Swear allegiance? To Spirit Demons?”
“A-are we going to be killed by them?”
“Guardian Masters, what are we to do now? Do we truly need to kneel to these Spirit Demons? If that is the case, we should just fight to the death with them!”
“We would rather die than to bow to these demons!”
“Yes, we will never yield!”
The shoutings came out nonstop, without a thread of fear.
Everywhere, passionate youths could be seen. Everywhere, everyone were righteous and honorable.
Seeing that the Qin Creek people were ironclad and unwilling to yield, Ye Liao was flooded with emotions.
He got out of the support from the people and walked up a few steps, with stern eyes he stared at Spirit Demon Emperor, took a deep breath, and shouted: “Senior Spirit Demon Emperor! You barged into Sky Martial Continent without permission, according to the agreement that you had signed with them in the past, you have already violated the agreements, are you not afraid the almighty beings of Sky Martial Continent will come to suppress you?”
Hearing that, Spirit Demon Emperor’s eyes flashed a weird look, but he did not panic, and instead asked: “My sister was under duress because of you all, I have the qualifications to step through realms to enter Sky Martial Continent. Even if he was here, I will say the same thing! If you do not give me an explanation, do not blame me for being merciless!”
Hearing that, Ye Liao exhaled, and muttered under his breath: “That’s good that’s good.”
“What’s good, Master Ye Liao?”
The people around him were perspiring profusely, and someone asked anxiously.
“He still has restraining fear!” Ye Liao spoke out.
“Fear? Fear of what?”
“All of you do not know about this, but almighty beings like this Spirit Demon Emperor, when they step through their own realms and enter other realms, they are in fact going against a regulation. The Spirit Demon Emperor is the almighty being of the Spirit Demon Dao, but our Sky Martial Continent actually also have a few almighty beings, and all of them are not at all inferior to him. With him stepping into Qin Creek, he is actually provoking those few almighty beings, and that will cause an all out brutal war between the Spirit Demon Dao and Sky Martial Continent, although the Spirit Demon Dao eyes our Sky Martial Continent greatly, it dares not dare go head on against us, so even though he is here, he will not dare to do anything recklessly, and is only fighting for his daughter!”
Ye Liao continued: “I initially thought that the Spirit Demon Emperor does not fear anything, but it seems that I was wrong, Everyone, no matter what, do not do anything reckless. He is still a Spirit Demon being, and if he explodes, and ignores everything, we will be done for!”
“Then, Master Ye, what do we do now? He wants us to give him an explanation, what do we do?”
“Don’t be anxious! He definitely has a motive for coming here.”
After explaining. Ye Liao turned to look at the Spirit Demon Emperor, and asked loudly: “Then, Senior Spirit Demon Emperor, how do you wish for us to give you an explanation?”
“Did you not hear me, to swear your allegiance to me?”
Spirit Demon Emperor replied coldly.
“Senior, you know it is impossible for my Qin Creek to bow down to your Spirit Demon Dao, we would rather be killed by You!”
Ye Liao replied.
With regards to such a matter, he was extremely resolute.
“You dare to disobey me!”
Spirit Demon Emperor revealed anger in his eyes as he roared.
Ye Liao was met once again with the attack. He anxiously activated his mystical technique, forming a crystal barrier that protected his body, preventing him from sustaining the same injury.
“Ye Liao! It was on the account that you are Qin Zhong Xian’s disciple that I talked to you! Do you truly think I am afraid of the fellows of Sky Martial Continent?”
“This junior dare not, it is just that senior’s request is truly too difficult to fulfil!”
Ye Liao spoke without being servile or overbearing.
Spirit Emperor’s expression was sinister, he stared at Ye Liao, but did not say anything.
Two races, opposing each other, both with a vast amount of troops. They faced off against one another, with the Spirit Demon Qi still covering the skies of Qin Creek, the mist undulating but not changing.
Then, the Spirit Demon Emperor spoke.
“Since it is like that, I will not make it difficult for you now, but, where is the person that held my daughter captive? Bring him out first, then we will speak!”
His words were like thunder, and instantly falling onto Su Yun who was among the crowd.
In that moment, everyone’s gaze turned and gathered at Su Yun.
Qing’er’s beautiful and delicate face immediately turned pale white. But she did not step back, she stood by Su Yun’s side, holding her sword tightly, her eyes looking around cautiously.
Spirit Demon Emperor suddenly extended his hand out, grabbing into the air.
Su Yun’s entire being was grabbed out of the crowd, and was immediately in the middle of the rift between the two races.
Qing’er immediately panicked, her frail figure staggered as she ran over, trying to reach out for Su Yun who was being pulled up into the air.
“Were you the one who seized my daughter?”
Spirit Demon Emperor shot a cold glance as he stared sinisterly at Su Yun.
Su Yun gasped.
He knew that he would not be able to get out of the trouble easily!
But still, he did not reveal any fear, and instead raised his head to look at the Spirit Demon Emperor.
