Man Huang Feng Bao, Chapter 417: Blacksnake Phantom
“Eh, Your Excellency, I’m sorry……”
Plague Archfiend Abasi awkwardly apologized and turned to leave.
But, someone else was faster than him. Zhu Sijia who had turned red to her ears lowered her head and ran away after struggling free from Ye Chuan. Seeing this, Plague Archfiend Abasi was placed in an even more awkward situation as he knew that his timing was very bad.
“What matter brought you here?” Ye Chuan asked but his eyes were still looking at the back view of Zhu Sijia with a bad smile. He truly enjoyed the process, not only the result. Thinking about it, in the beginning, junior apprentice sister Zhu Sijia was so haughty and shrewish, but now, she……
Now, the more Ye Chuan thought, the more he felt that turning to an ordinary disciple, compared to his previous life when he was aloof and remote Heaven Concealing Great Sage, his current life was a lot more colorful.
In his previous life, he already had everything he wanted. Although he had many followers, only a few of them were loyal to him from the bottom of their heart. And, he always felt somewhat lonely at the top. Now, although his cultivation was still very low compared to his previous life and it was hard to obtain crystal stones and medicinal pills he wanted, he had a group of sincere followers and juniors who worked together to help each other. Often, he could also take liberties with Zhu Sijia, this junior apprentice sister. His current life was very colorful.
“Your Excellency, take a look at this flying sword.”
Plague Archfiend Abasi walked over and handed over that blacksnake flying sword of Mei Chuanfeng to Ye Chuan and said, “This flying sword is very strange, appearance wise, it resembled a snake, and it appeared as if a snake is sealed inside it which could rush out at any time and devour the spirit.”
Plague Archfiend Abasi looked solemn. As a Half Sage realm expert, he would never disturb Ye Chuan with a normal matter, but this matter was different, just sensing the snake sealed within this flying sword made even him feel ill at ease.
After swallowing this flying sword of Mei Chuanfeng, he planned to refine it immediately. He thought that since he was able to erase the connection between this big killing weapon and Mei Chuanfeng, he could also seize the essence energy of this flying sword, but returning to the sea dragon boat, he quickly discovered that things were not as simple as he had thought. On the surface, it appeared as if he had already refined this snakelike flying sword with his fate demonic flame, but he always felt inexplicable danger from this flying sword as if a pair of eyes was coldly staring at him.
In the beginning, Plague Archfiend Abasi thought that Ghost King Dusen might have left some kind of mark on his body, so he felt like that. But, after looking around for a good while, he discovered that the problem lied in this flying sword, and carefully examining it, he vaguely sensed a snake sealed within this flying sword that was ready to make trouble. In addition, it appeared as if that snake would rush out at any time and attack.
“That snake, isn’t its entire body completely black with thick scales all over?” Ye Chuan asked. He didn’t take this flying sword, but his complexion was solemn as a terrifying figure appeared in his mind.
“Yes, Your Excellency, you……, how did you know?” Plague Archfiend Abasi was surprised.
Ye Chuan remained silent without answering Plague Archfiend Abasi. And after pondering for a while, he asked again, “That snake, it doesn’t open its mouth to devour spirit rather divine sense disappears upon drawing close to it, in addition, around that snake, isn’t there a faint black qi?”
“Yes, yes, yes, it’s like that, when my divine sense got close to it, that black qi around it swallow my divine sense!”
Plague Archfiend Abasi repeatedly nodded his head, but he was all the more shocked and confused as he didn’t understand how Ye Chuan knew this. However, one thing was certain, Ye Chuan was truly not simple and he was far from being just a simple disciple of a sect.
“I know, Abasi, follow me.”
Ye Chuan turned around and walked inside the cabin, then sitting cross-legged, he took out small crystal man he had obtained in Demonic Dragon Paradise Realm and cut it using his Dragon Slaying Flying Sword.
“Your Excellency, this is……”
Plague Archfiend Abasi was somewhat confused. He was unable to make sense of what Ye Chuan was doing, but, not long after, he understood.
The sharp Dragon Slaying Flying Sword of Ye Chuan cut this small crystal man into two half, then carving a snake like curvy groove, he made Abasi put the blacksnake flying sword in the groove. The size of that groove was a perfect fit. After that, he joined together the other half of the small crystal man, covering the blacksnake flying sword.
“Your Excellency, that snake in this flying sword, is it so powerful?” Plague Archfiend Abasi asked. He had been together with Ye Chuan for so long, but this was the first time he had seen Ye Chuan being so cautious.
“Very powerful, no, should say very very powerful. If my guess isn’t wrong, then that is the true heaven-defying evil spirit, even one hundred of Ghost King also cannot match it.”
Ye Chuan was very solemn and after speaking a few sentences, he circulated Heaven Swallowing Talismans within his body and set up a powerful restriction above this small crystal man. And only after sealing this blacksnake flying sword heavily, he put that small crystal man in his Cyan Lotus Lamp.
From the beginning to the end, he didn’t personally examine the circumstance within this blacksnake flying sword. He didn’t even touch this flying sword. He was very cautious.
Just with the words of Plague Archfiend Abasi, he could already guess what was going on within this blacksnake flying sword. The guess he had made before was truly correct. Now, he could conclude that Blacksnake Clan and Black Snake Monarch were inextricably linked. It was very likely that that so-called Blacksnake Archfiend was Black Snake Monarch, the formidable enemy of his previous life, or the avatar of the latter. The snake within this blacksnake flying sword was unique soul imprint of Blacksnake Monarch, so refining it without careful consideration, one might suffer a fatal counterattack.
Plague Archfiend Abasi was unaware of the hidden facts and he also didn’t dare to explore the mystery of this flying sword. Ye Chuan also didn’t dare to touch it, otherwise, Black Snake Monarch might be able to sense his aura via his soul imprint. If that happened, then he would be in trouble.
The complexion of Plague Archfiend Abasi however turned pale and his heart was in jitters.
Even one hundred Ghost King together was not the opponent, what exactly was the origin of that snake in this flying sword? Who was so terrifying?
Plague Archfiend Abasi’s heart shook, but he didn’t doubt the words of Ye Chuan as Ye Chuan didn’t need to exaggerate, moreover, his complexion was also solemn. Abasi wanted to ask what was going on, but seeing Ye Chuan was silent without uttering a word, he didn’t dare to ask minutely.
“Big Senior Apprentice Brother, Big Senior Apprentice Brother……”
The voice of Zhu Sijia came as she hastily rushed in with a piece of paper, “Big Senior Apprentice Brother, not good, White Dragon Sage is gone, look!”
Ye Chuan took the paper and saw there were only a few words on it, “Noble son Ye, I am leaving.”
The letter didn’t state where he was going, and even didn’t mention about entrusting his son Jiajia to Ye Chuan. He had just left. One person one sword one boat, a solitary figure in the vast sea suddenly appeared in the mind of Ye Chuan.
At that time, the sound of messy footsteps came, and Little Long’er and Sea Demon Patriarch and others came in.
“Patriarch, I am very sorry, we have to delay going to East Sea by several days.”
Ye Chuan slowly stood up and his tone was somewhat mild but his attitude was firm.
After discovering the unusualness of the blacksnake flying sword, Ye Chuan determined that there was a link between Blacksnake Clan and Black Snake Monarch, so Ye Chuan made up his mind. Whatever happens, he must destroy this sacrifice ceremony of Blacksnake Clan. He couldn’t let Black Snake Monarch come to Wilderness World.
