Evil Sword Sovereign King (XVIII)
The Spirit Demon Emperor stared at Su Yun with his strange moss green eyes, without changing his expression, but the more he did that, the more terrifying it was to others.
“You’re just a sixth stage Spirit Soul Realm cultivator, and is just plainly lucky to be able to have a few good treasures to use. For such an ant to dare make a move on this Emperor’s daughter, are you not putting my Spirit Dao in your eyes? Humph, this Emperor will extract your three Immortal Souls and Seven Mortal forms, and seal you in my Wretched Spirit Ring, to allow you to suffer the pain from torture for all eternity, and allow you to regret forever!”
With that, Spirit Demon Emperor did not even hesitate, and started to activate the punishment on Su Yun.
Su Yun was not an idiot, the Spirit Demon Emperor was also not an idiot.
Under such a situation, there was no possibility whereby the Spirit Demon Emperor would forgive Su Yun, and furthermore, regardless of cultivation or position, it was comparing between heaven and earth, Su Yun was just a small little ant to him, why show mercy?
Su Yun took in a deep breath, he had already done all his preparations, and at that moment, he only needed to let go of his hand.
Although the chance of escape was very small, but at least he could contend against him.
At that moment, a shout came out.
Spirit Demon Emperor frowned, and shouted back angrily: “Who dares to stop me?”
At that moment, Ye Liao took a few steps forward and stooped to bow with his hands cupped in front, and replied respectfully: “Senior Spirit Demon Emperor, please hold your hand. Ye Liao has some words to say! Su Yun had held the Princess captive, was because he wanted a chance for life, and executed it because of instinct. Although he is guilty, but the punishment is too severe, why not this, Master Spirit Demon Emperor, give Su Yun to me to deal with, what about it? He is such a puny figure, and should not have to dirty Senior’s almighty hands!”
Ye Liao spoke with respect, seemingly as if there was no grievances between the Qin Creek people and the Spirit Demon Dao.
Although Ye Liao had said that, Su Yun knew, he was helping himself.
But, the Spirit Demon Emperor did not buy Ye LIao’s words, and replied coldly: “Outrageous! Who do you think you are? This Emperor has not even dealt with you, you can’t even protect yourself, and you want to protect others? Humph, you better look after yourself!”
With that, the Spirit Demon Emperor made his move, ignoring Ye Liao and the other people’s words.
Seeing that, Ye Liao became anxious, and directly rushed forth, slapping a palm out towards Spirit Demon Emperor!
Ye Liao’s sudden actions caused many people to not believe their eyes.
Ye Liao was actually willing to make a move against the Spirit Demon Emperor for Su Yun?
“How dare you!”
The Spirit Demon Emperor was infuriated, Ye Liao’s actions was a complete provocation!
The Spirit Demon Emperor opened his mouth and released a large roar. The sound wave resonated outwards, infused with Spirit Demon Qi, it struck Ye Liao thoroughly.
Ye Liao was struck into confusion, falling from the sky, the sound wave continued to resonate and exploded a gigantic mountain. Instantly, the gigantic mountain was reduced to dust, leaving nothing behind.
Seeing that, everyone inhaled in cold air.
Ye Liao coughed a few times, blood streaming down the corner of his mouth. After landing, he wavered slightly. Yuwen Xiao Lin and Gu Qing Wu immediately rushed forward to support him, but was declined by him.
“Ye Liao, you dare to attack me? Good! Very good! From now on, even if your master Qin Zhong Xian is here, he will not be able to protect you!”
The Spirit Demon Emperor roared in anger, and released another attack.
“Senior Spirit Demon Emperor! My Qin Creek’s People knows how to repay our benefactors, and will never be vile people! Although Su Yun is an Evil Realm being, he saved over 10 lives here, and have done a great kindness to Qin Creek, how can I just watch him die? On this day, Ye Liao has already decided, I will separate myself from Qin Creek, and will never be associated with Qin Creek again. Now, I will help Su Yun, and that is completely on me alone, I hope that you do not take your anger out on Qin Creek for what I have done.”
When he finished, Ye Liao once again rushed forward, challenging Spirit Demon Emperor.
Ye Liao spoke really quickly, but many people were shaken by his words, many more Qin Creek people were crying. They understood why Ye Liao did what he did, in his heart, Qin Creek was everything, he did not wish for the people of Qin Creek to bear the guilt of being ingratitude towards their benefactor, and did not wish Qin Creek to be destroyed by the Spirit Demon Dao, so under that helpless situation, he had decided to sacrifice himself to save Qin Creek from both situations.
“Master Ye Liao!”
Countless of people were wailing in anguish.
“Master Ye Liao! I will fight alongside you!”
Without hesitation, Yuwen Xiao Lin rushed forward.
Seeing that, how could Gu Qing Wu remain at the back? She followed Yuwen Xiao Lin forward.
Three Fourth stage Spirit Star cultivators immediately engaged in battle with the Spirit Demon Emperor!
Seeing that, Su Yun immediately pulled on Qing’er, and spoke with a serious and earnest expression: “Qing’er, quickly leave first!”
“Young Master, you think I will still dare to go?” Qing’er’s flawless face revealed a smile: “Young master, this time, you better not lie to me, I will not leave! If you want me to leave again, I would rather die right now.”
Her eyes revealed determination.
“I will face against all difficulties with Young Master! I do not want to escape anymore, I will not hide behind Young Master and allow young master to bear everything alone!”
Su Yun looked at the seemingly weak and frail girl in front of him, and his heart shuddered.
After a long time, he exhaled a breath of air, and smiled.
“Alright, Qing’er, this time, let us fight together!”
He understood Qing’er’s feelings and her thoughts.
In truth, Su Yun had already become a thorn in the eyes of the Spirit Demon Emperor, and it was impossible for him to leave. Although the Spirit Demon Emperor had difficulty killing Ye Liao and the rest at the moment, it was easy for him to grab onto Su Yun if he tried to escape, as behind him, there was a large number of powerful Spirit Demon Dao cultivators!
“Qing’er, The Spirit Demon Emperor is a great figure. If we are to fight against him directly, we are only sending ourselves to death. Since we cannot escape or fight him, we only have one route left to take!”
Su Yun stared at Mu Yi who was amongst the Spirit Demon beings, and said: “If we are able to hold Princess Mu Yi captive, we can stop the Spirit Demon Emperor, and he will not dare to do anything to us!”
“The Spirit Demon Emperor is powerful, even if we hold her captive, we cannot do anything. With just one hand of his, he can easily make us submit, seizing a hostage will not work.”
Qing’er rationalized his idea.
If it were to work, then Mu Yi would not have been able to leave so easily previously, and even Ye Liao was unable to stop her, so what could Su Yun and Qing’er do?
“Qing’er, you’re right, but if I am successful in my next step, then, we have the qualifications to contend against the Spirit Demon Emperor!”
Su Yun took a deep breath, his heart quivered as he retrieved a red pill from his storage ring.
“It’s the only thing that can keep us alive.”
Su Yun breathed fiercely.
“The Great Broiled Immortal Blood Pill, after consuming it, a signal will form inside the user’s body, attracting the ‘Sky-Burning Fire’ to envelop the entire ground, and if the signal is sufficient, it will be able to form a connection with the ‘Cross Fire Heaven Lord’, and beg him for protection.”
“Is that true?” Hearing that, Qing’er was ecstatic. The name Cross Fire Heaven Lord sounded extraordinary,
“But I was the one who refined this pill.” Su Yun added.
Hearing that, Qing’er immediately became speechless.
Although Su Yun was extraordinary among his generation, but in truth, his cultivation was not very strong, so how was he able to concoct such a heaven defying pill? The probability of establishing a connection to the ‘Cross Fire Heaven Lord’ through the Great Broiled Immortal Blood Pill in his hand was extremely low.
“Qing’er. Don’t be too disappointed.” Su Yun took a deep breath: “Although this pill was refined by me, the secrets to it’s concoction is extremely hard to get. I have suffered so much trials and tribulations to obtain the ingredients from the Demonic beings, every single ingredient are all famed and expensive, and in total, the pill is definitely invaluable. So even if I cannot establish a connection with the ‘Cross Fire Heaven Lord’, at least we are able to use it to delay the Spirit Demon Emperor for a period of time.”
“Young master, no matter what happens, Qing’er will stay by your side.” Qing’er extended out her small hand, unswerving determination shown in her dainty complexion.
Su Yun nodded his head. He stared at the pill, and then immediately consumed in.
The pill entered his belly. There were no reactions initially, but after a moment, a burning sensation attacked his mind.
Gradually, the temperature rose higher and higher, the burning sensation felt as though he was being set ablaze, Su Yun started to perspire in great amounts, his pale white skin started to become red, and all of the Spirit Essence in his body seemed to be enveloped with flames, all of his Profound Spirit Qi instantly transforming into Scarlet Star Spirit Qi.
All of his tendons, muscles, five viscera and six bowel organs all seemed to be burning.
(TN: Five Viscera Organs: Heart, Liver, Spleen, Lungs, Kidneys. Six Bowel Organs: Stomach, small intestine, large intestine, gall bladder, urinary bladder and Triple Energiser meridians)
The pain started to get to his head, But Su Yun did not do anything, he needed to be able to bear the pain of consuming the pill.
He slowly leaked out a bit of the Profound Spirit Qi. The burning Profound Spirit Qi was more unique than ordinary Scarlet Star Spirit Qi. Upon being released, it soared into the sky and disappeared. But in the next moment, above the clouds, a fire cloud ferociously plummeted and smashed onto the ground.
That was the power of the Sky-burning fire, by burning his Profound Spirit Qi with the help of the pill, it would attract the intense flames of the Heavens.
But it was not enough.
This is definitely not enough to win against the Spirit Demon Emperor!
Su Yun immediately closed his eyes and experienced the changes in the Profound Spirit Qi in his body, hoping to find the critical point, the establishment of the connection to the Cross Fire Heaven Lord. Although he did not know if the Cross Fire Heaven Lord was willing to help him, at the present, this was the only thing he could rely on.
Just that, relying on the mystical force bestowed by the ‘Great Broiled Immortal Blood Pill’ to form a connection with the ‘Cross Fire Heaven Lord’ had an extremely low probability of happening. Su Yun continued to look inside his body, but was unable to find any changes.
“Su Yun, what’s happening? What is this terrifying burst if Profound Spirit Qi inside your body? God, are you fighting with a Spirit Star Realm cultivator?”
Just at the moment when Su Yun was panicking, a clear and beautiful voice came out in his mind.
Su Yun was startled.
When everything was so intense outside, with the swarm of tyrants, she did not wake up, but she suddenly did.
“Eh? Su Yun, what’s happening to your body? Why is it so hard? And you actually have a false God Seal in your body? That’s too mystical! What’s going on?”
Ling Qing Yu exclaimed.
Hearing that, Su Yun’s entire body trembled, as though he had found his last life saving straw of grass, and anxiously shouted: “False God Seal? What False God Seal? Qing Yu, where is the God Seal? Where is it? Where is it!”
