Man Huang Feng Bao, Chapter 433: Blue demons
The huge sea dragon boat rode the wind and cleaved the waves, rapidly advancing forward. It quickly crossed the east sea and entered the vast south sea. Then passing Cyan Sand Island, they advanced southward towards the end of this vast sea.
After leaving Dragon King Island, Sea Demon Patriarch personally took the helm and navigated continuously as if he was worried that they would encounter another disturbance along the way. And as if there was a pressing matter, he was burning with impatience all the way. The closer they reached to the Lost City, the more excited he became and he also became even more impatient. The huge sea dragon boat rapidly sailed through the sea surface, leaving behind a long string of ripple on the sea surface.
The old man was burning with impatience, but Ye Chuan was leisurely and unhurried. After sitting on the deck for several days to experience the local conditions and customs of Overseas World, he entered seclusion to cultivate.
They had basically achieved their objectives in the east sea. They successfully killed Mei Chuanfeng, rescued Redline Lady Chu Hongniang and prevented the arrival of Blacksnake Demon God, therefore there was no danger in short term, but hidden troubles still existed. Until he broke through to Sage realm, he needed to guard against the arrival of Blacksnake Monarch, the formidable enemy of his previous life.
“Old Rabbit, Yao Empress, since Blacksnake Monarch still exists, what about you all? Did you all go to the world beyond the highest heaven or pass away, disappearing in the long river of history?”
Ye Chuan sighed.
He was able to vaguely sense a hint of familiar aura on that Blacksnake Demon God, that was the aura of Blacksnake Monarch. Now, he was certain that the other party was still alive, making him feel boundless pressure. If Ghost Hand Medicinal King, Blue Eyed Yao Empress and other powerful followers of his previous life were still alive, then Ye Chuan absolutely wouldn’t have felt such pressure. He would have directly gone to look for that Blacksnake Monarch to take revenge. But, now, he could only hide his whereabouts.
In this life, although he had Old Demon of Mount Yin, Nan Tiandu, Plague Archfiend and other followers, and their cultivation was also not that shallow, compared to Ghost Hand Medicinal King, Blue Eyed Yao Empress and others, there was a very huge gap. It was unrealistic to rely on Old Demon of Mount Yin and others to compete against Blacksnake Monarch.
Exhaling a mouthful of chaotic qi, Ye Chuan cut off his distracting thoughts and began cultivating.
Now, he had three ways to contend with Blacksnake Monarch, raise the cultivation of Old Demon of Mount Yin and others, tame or recruit even more powerful yao beast, or cultivate strenuously to breakthrough to Sage realm as soon as possible. Among these three ways, Ye Chuan chose the last way without any hesitation. This was the foundation to make a foothold in Wilderness World and defeat his formidable enemies!
Circulating Heaven Swallowing Talismans, Ye Chuan absorbed a large quantity of the worldly spiritual qi. Then, his body slowly began to move. This was not his voluntary movement, rather was involuntary movement, and under his white battle robe, his muscles were pulsating.
One Heaven Swallowing Talisman gave him the strength of 18,000 jin, and nine Heaven Swallowing Talismans together gave him the strength of 162,000 jin!
Once such strength erupted out, even the doughty body of Ye Chuan might not be able to endure and tear up. Circulating such power within his body, all of his meridians were aching and swelling, and he felt as if his entire body was about to explode. In addition, his bones and muscles were making crackling sounds.
“First ten Heaven Swallowing Talismans, come out for me!”
Ye Chuan roared in his heart and circulated a large amount of energy as blood began to seep out from his skin. But, he ignored it. Slowly, a vague qi cyclone appeared within his dantian, fermenting the appearance of the new Heaven Swallowing Talisman.
After reincarnation, experience and knowledge of his previous life were the greatest assets of Ye Chuan, and Yao Refining Heaven Swallowing Secrets he had accidentally obtained in God Burial Valley was his greatest trust. Compared to Heaven Concealing Secrets, the life technique of his previous life, this technique was far superior. Cultivating like this and condensing 108,000 Heaven Swallowing Talismans someday, let alone Blacksnake Monarch, he would be able to easily crush someone who was thousand times more powerful!
This powerful and violent energy not only tempered the bones and muscles of Ye Chuan, but it also encouraged his morale. Slowly, as this energy became stronger and stronger, the fighting spirit of Ye Chuan soared. Now, he was no longer full of nervousness and fear thinking of the day when he would have to fight a decisive battle against Blacksnake Monarch, and slowly, he looked forward to it and was somewhat excited.
In his previous life, Blacksnake Monarch was weaker than him or was roughly comparable to him at most. But relying on schemes and intrigues, he trapped him in God Burial Valley. However, in this life, Ye Chuan was cultivating even more powerful Yao Refining Heaven Swallowing Secrets, and once he broke through to Sage realm and become Heaven Swallowing Great Sage, how could Blacksnake Monarch who was inferior to his previous self be his opponent?
Ye Chuan yearned and looked forward to this realm.
The huge sea dragon boat continued to sail through the vast sea. Very quickly, a month had already passed.
In this one month, sea dragon boat passed through many islands, some were desolated and uninhibited and some were boisterous with many merchant ships. But, other than stopping to replenish fresh water, foods and essential materials, sea dragon boat continued to advance day and night. And according to the estimation, they would reach Lost City, the holy land of Sea Demon Clan, after roughly three days.
And only after seeing the surrounding had gradually become familiar, Sea Demon Patriarch relaxed and no longer personally took the helm. He just repeatedly went to the deck and look at the scenery around. And looking at the islands they were passing by, the memories of his childhood appeared in his mind.
A long time ago, Sea Demon Clan lived in Lost City, only after an unforeseen event, they had to leave their homeland and lead a vagrant life outside. Now, returning to their holy land and his birthplace, this old man was excited and also nervous, in addition, he frequently wiped his big killing weapon. This was a sharp triangular thorn, or one could say, it was a translucent fish bone. It was obtained by the previous patriarch after killing a hundred thousand years old bullhead shark. It was tough and sharp, one stab from it could create a hole in anything, and it was especially ferocious when fighting in water.
Sea Demoness Hai Lili went to the deck and standing behind Sea Demon Patriarch who was by himself, she asked, “Grandfather, be honest, will we encounter anything dangerous in Lost City? And the true purpose for requesting noble son Ye to come here isn’t to escort the sacred item back rather to deal with the danger in Lost City, isn’t that so?”
After nightfall, Zhu Sijia and other disciples of Cloud Mist Sect had already entered their cabins. They were either cultivating or resting to recharge. As for Ye Chuan, he had been in seclusion cultivation for days. Only the ordinary warriors of Sea Demon Clan were doing their duty of guarding. So, just Hai Lili was suspicious and noticed the unusual behavior of her grandfather.
“There is no danger, we will just take the Neptune Horn and leave.”
The old man replied and added, “Lili, it’s so late at night, go to rest. Roughly after three more days, we will arrive at Lost City, rest properly. Since it is not easy to return here again, this grandfather will take you around to let you see where this grandfather used to live in childhood.”
“Grandfather, really?” Hai Lili asked, half believing half doubting. Looking at the appearance of her grandfather, it appeared as if he was not lying, but he felt something was wrong in her heart.
The old man nodded his head and said, “Of course, really, Lili, I am your grandfather, how can I lie to you? If there truly is a danger, then will I take you there?”
“Then, fine, grandfather, you should also rest early.”
Hai Lili also thought so, then turning around, she left. But, after a long time, a sigh resounded.
“Lili, this is also for your sake……”
The old man sighed and quietly sized up this wiped clean Bullhead Shark Thorn. At this moment, the dark clouds at the horizon became denser, and along with a cold wind, there was a drizzle. Looking forward, he could vaguely see a deserted island which resembled a loggerhead turtle.
Everything appeared quiet, nothing unusual, but the glabella of this old man twitched as he felt an invisible danger. He carefully looked around and saw a thin blue mist had appeared on the sea surface at an unknown time. And under the hazy moonlight, it appeared bewitching and strange.
The heart of this old man jumped and he became tense. Being able to emit blue mist proved that it was a yao beast that was at least 500,000 years old. Such type of yao beasts was commonly known as Blue Demons.
In the vast sea, 100,000 years old yao beasts could be found everywhere, but there were not many 500,000 years old yao beasts, and every one of them was the overlord of one region!
